  1. They go to a special place for punishment where they have to listen to Zain Bhikha for eternity. On the bright side they all get a cookie.
  2. The Christians believed it was the manifestation of Mary (as). The Catholic Church deemed it a valid revelation, still is till this day.
  3. They are not building a better one, they are getting rid of it to expand the Masjid itself.
  4. I really don't even know what to say, they are seriously crossing the line. You can read the article here.
  5. Ok, so? I don't dig how Shia make it a point to show how Umar was frightened when he first converted or how he ran from the battle field. Converting to Islam can be a dangerous experience even here in a country where religious freedom is protected by law, so I can't imagine the pressure of converting in a society where most of the local population is calling for Muslim blood as was happening at that time. Also, how many people here would be able to stand in battle, especially considering the odds they faced. Most of us would run from a verbal confrontation, let alone a wall of well trained calvary or a sea of arrows. My point is we make attacks upon personalities as if we were children making fun of each other on the playground, pointing and laughing at how scared the other was while we pretend we are any braver. Umar committed some of the most vile and despicable acts to the Ahlul Bayt, and his actions during the Nabi's life time are no better. So if you really find a need to even make him relevant at all, address those acts, the things that actually mattered.
  6. I really don't see how this is being used as a way to point out the negative qualities of Umar ibn Al Khattab. All that is happening here is someone whom Umar was associated with prior to his conversion, who clearly still has feelings of loyalty to Umar and their friendship, and thus protects him while everyone else was ready to rip him to shreds. This is something converts experience all of the time with family members and friends that have their own strong feelings about Islam and Muslims, but for the sake of their relationship are willing to stand by and even defend the other. There are plenty of proofs, from our own books as well as Sunni's, that point out Umar's rap sheet. So using this to do it, is a bit silly.
  7. I don't speak farsi, so I can't really tell if that is what he actually said, and I don't feel comfortable accusing him of that even if there is subtitles. However if he did say it, I get where he is coming from, and it's just a really poor choice of words. Al-Qur'an is not the only evidence for Maryam's (as) chastity and honor, there is the Gospel itself that serves as evidence. Also, you would be surprised how many Jews don't have an issue making sense of the 'virgin birth' story, they take more of an issue with the 'literal' claim that Isa is the Messiah. Care to back that up? That is an opinion, there are hadith about it, it's a complicated subject, and it's controversial. I would be surprised if a Marja today is so blunt about it as you have implied.
  8. I have read that site, it is just conjecture and don't really wish to waste my time. If you don't want to do it, then cool.
  9. Sayyid Al Khoi. Shaykh Abdul Kareem Al Ha'ery Sayyid Sadiq Al Shirazi. Sayyid Muhammad Al Shirazi. Sayyid Ali Sistani. Sayyid Muhammad Sadiq Al Rohani. Shaykh Vahid Al Khorasani. Sayyid Muhsin Al Hakim. Shaykh Mirza Al Tabrizi. I am sure there are plenty more I've forgotten. All of these men agreed that at the very least there is no harm nor prohibition on tatbir and zanjeer, some of them were more in 'support' of the act then the others.
  10. I am looking forward to another Muharram of Muslims telling other Muslims how much their right and everyone else is wrong.
  11. A lot of people say many things about many folks, if we believed it every time it happened where would we be? Yassir Habib is many things, including a man educated in the sciences of our religion. He put in his years of studies with scholars who's authority is recognized on all fronts, so to imply he is not an 'actual scholar' is a cheap shot. In addition to those years of study he also put in time as a prisoner for merely teaching about our religion in Kuwait, during those years he had faced torture and solitude confinement, a fact about him often overlooked. Does Yassir say things that are sometimes inappropriate, sure. It would be nice if he worded things better, or treated other scholars with more brotherly love. However I have yet to hear him say a single thing that cannot be found within our literature, the issue of it being absolutely authentic is irrelevant, the point is it is there. Perhaps Shia should spend more time studying their religion as opposed to sweeping it under the rug.
  12. It must be reassuring thing for Sunnis who come on this site, to see Shia so adamant on vilifying and destroying each other. Got to love that whole "brotherhood" thing.
  13. Because I like being consistently annoyed by other Muslims, it's what I live for.
  14. "Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. Then he addressed them saying, "Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men followed him. He was killed, all of his followers were disperse, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all of his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you, leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men, you will only find yourselves fighting against God." - Acts 34-39. Gamaliel was a Pharisee, a leading authority in his time. This was his address to Bani'Israel when they sought to do harm to the Apostles of Isa Al Masih and the rest of his followers. His point here is clear, but in case someone missed it, he is saying the wise choice is to leave the claimants of divine authority alone. Let them teach what they want, say what they want, do what they want. If they are liars and the claim is false, the movement will naturally fail. However if it is in fact from Allah, you will not be able to stop it and it will result in your own destruction. To much time is being wasted on disputing with these people.
  15. ShiaChat, where calling women evil and inferior is acceptable and considered to be religious discourse.
  16. And this thread takes a wrong turn in 10....9....8....7...6....5....4....3....2....1....
  17. This guy is my favorite reciter, really the only one I enjoy listening to.

    Well done on The Beard's reference.
  19. "Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism." - Kenny Powers
  20. Leave it to Shia to ruin what is an unusually beautiful story of forgiveness and faith.
  21. It's pretty convenient that every popular personality throughout history just so happened to write great things about Imam Hussain.
  22. Because it isn't possible at all that they are simply blaming him because they finally have someone to blame it on. What was their excuse before Yassir Habib? All you're achieving by blaming these deaths on him is doing exactly what the Sunnis want you to do, blame the scapegoat. It is pathetic really to see how quickly Shia will buy into this nonsense. Shia care more about what Sunnis think of them then they do about what Allah thinks of them, it is that simple.
