  1. JazakAllah Khair, brother. Do you know if the Maqam was changed to its rightful location later on by a subsequent caliph (more likely an Abbasid one, as opposed to Imam Ali (as) or Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba (as))? (wasalam)
  2. (bismillah) (salam) I do NOT mean to create this topic to cause fitna. If a Sunni brother or sister can refute the claim I heard, then please do so. For the last couple of weeks, I was in Somalia and then Bahrain with my family. While in Bahrain, my father met with one of his old friends he met in Iraq during the '70s. My father and him were catching up since they haven't spoken to each other in a long time, so when my father got to the topic of our recent 'umrah, the Bahraini man told us that he read in some of our hadith books that 'Umar changed the location of Maqam-e-Ibrahim (as). He sho
  3. (bismillah) (salam) Don't worry about the dialects at all unless you are planning to stay in an Arab country. Learn MSA (Fus'ha) and I would recommend the free resources from this website: http://www.al3arabiya.info/
  4. is fasting during Ayam al-Baydh for this Sha'ban.

  5. (bismillah) (salam) RIYADH — Saudi Arabia's hunger for weapons, initially aimed at staving off the threat of Iran, has grown with the upcoming US withdrawal from Iraq and instability in Yemen and Bahrain, analysts say. "Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries in general realise that they must rely on themselves to defend themselves during this critical period marked by the beginning of a US withdrawal from Iraq," said Anwar Eshki, director of the Middle East Institute for Strategic Studies. About 46,000 US troops remain in Iraq and are due to leave by December 31 under an agreement with Baghdad, a
  6. (bismillah) (salam) An 'aqeeq is carnelian. But I'm confused of whether carnelian is a type of agate or not. Here are Ayatollah Ali as-Sistani's laws on the matter though: http://www.sistani.org/local.php?modules=nav&nid=2&bid=59&pid=2955
  7. is back from 'umrah and ziyarat (2 days Makkah, 7 days Madinah).

  8. (bismillah) (salam) The best response I ever got from a Sunni was this that a Hanafi scholar named Ali ibn Sultan al-Qari wrote in the book Sharh ul-Fiqha Akbar that the 12 caliphs according to Hanafi 'aqeeda are 1. Abu Bakr 2. Umar ibn Al-Khattab 3. Uthman ibn 'Affan 4. Imam Ali (as) 5. Muawiyah ibn Abi Sufyan (la) 6. Yazid ibn Muawiyah (la) 7. Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan (la) 8. Walid ibn Abd al-Malik (la) 9. Sulayman ibn Abd al-Malik (la) 10. Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz 11. Yazid ibn Abd al-Malik (la) 12. Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik (la)
  9. (bismillah) (wasalam) According to Al-Mas'udi's Muruj al-Dhahab and Ibn Tahir al-Baghdadi's al-Farq, the Batriyya is a sect or group within Zaydi Shia Islam. Their beliefs also seem similar as you pointed out.
  10. (wasalam) Thank you for your help.
  11. (bismillah) (salam) In the rules and guidelines page, it states that "300 x 700 pixels of text and pictures" is the limit for pictures. On the signature-modification page found on my profile, it states, however, that "Images up to 300 x 300 pixels" is the limit. Which limit is correct? Thank you for your help.
  12. (bismillah) (salam) Why are you comparing Ayat al-Ghormezi who exists with someone from the US trying to pass of as a homosexual girl? Ayat al-Ghormezi is real, was being tortured, sentenced to jail for a year, and she's not dead as of now, no matter what Western, Saudi, Bahraini, or Iranian media says. Al-Ghormezi's mother on her daughter's capture by Bahraini police: (This is not the same video as the first one in this post.)
  13. (bismillah) (salam) I'm not an Iran-buff, but is PressTV directly run by the government? I thought it was only funded by the Iranian state, like many news agencies in the Middle East, rather than being established and used by it. @Syrian Sister--I agree but with the exception of the March 14 Alliance and by Turkey, you mean its general populace, correct?
  14. (bismillah) (salam) That doesn't excuse the fact that Iran and Turkey have pretty good relations. Also, Iran's Foreign Minister Salehi congratulated Erdogan's win in the elections today, so it would not make sense to discredit Turkey. Moreover, Erdogan has expanded trade with Iran, thereby helping its economy affected by sanctions from the West. I also love how the poll right now has a three-way tie about what will happen to al-Assad's government. :lol:
