  1. He stated that it was this was his last post (see attached post). Perhaps it was the way that his message was received.
  2. A nice read in the transcript https://billmoyers.com/content/genesis-the-test/ SEYYED HOSSEIN NASR: And the question which you first posed, whether any of us is horrified by the story. And my answer is a very strong no, but I want to come back what — to why. There’s a verse in the Koran that says we put you in this world in order to test you. The whole of life is a test. Now from a certain point of view, the test that Abraham is put through — precisely because of the father of monotheism is a supreme test. The supreme test which acts as the highest level, through which we could not go very easily, because we’re not on that level of reality. We’re not on that level of consciousness. Now it’s very important to understand this from a spiritual point of view. That if we cut off the hands of God from the events of this world. What happens in if our — if — in our ordinary life, our small child who is innocent from a moral point of view dies of cancer, what happens to that? Usually we do not associate that with the trial of Abraham. But if we have a kind of premodern cosmology, according to which it is God’s will that acts in human life, in history, in nature, in the world outside of us, then this supreme story is — in — there in order to enable us, actually, to face the most difficult tasks of life, which is like the loss of a son. That certainly is a condition which all of us face in this life if we have children
  3. Are there any maraji’ that allow cat hairs while praying?
  4. Salam of course this action should be taken if the Imams (عليه السلام) have told us. I don’t know why there is so much disagreement. Why do the shirazi groups disregard the emphasis of taqiyya?
  5. Yes this was the other one that I was thinking of watching, other than the one that br. mahdavist mentioned
  6. A glorious trap question for liberals, feminists and leftists. The moment they give the biological definition of a woman, they will accept that a woman is a woman and a man is a man, and that you can not change this.
  7. There’s so many Biography series, I do not know which one to choose from.
  8. I feel it’s important to use the names of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in different circumstances. Like “ya Hadi” or “ya Rahman” or “ya Aleemu”.
  9. Yes. They control the media to puppet the same narrative.
  10. One must realise that all power, and all help is ultimately coming from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), for He is as-Samad. That is what it means to be dependent.
  11. Hi Dave! Long time no chat. This video may be helpful for a more nuanced perspective:
  12. But we have a responsibility to enjoin the good, and forbid the evil. "He it is Who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, that He might cause it to prevail over all religions, though the mushrikūn may be averse." (9:33) The concept of a "state" or a "country" itself is a modern concept. Where does Islam recognise such boundaries? But that is another discussion...
  13. I am playing the video game of assignments and tests
  14. Really enjoy watching Firas. I saw this discussion with him and Joe Rogan. Really changed my understanding of things.
  15. Very interesting analysis and thanks for a great summary of recent events. I would appreciate the commentary of some senior members like @Qa'im.
  16. Yes I know. It is founded by ex lsraeli military intelligence
  17. You are right, but it is a starting point. Ultimately though, One can only know Allah through His own Self:
  18. Even the darkest of nights ends with Dawn. Let’s pray for the reappearance of our Imam (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف)
