    Homosexual is not a punishable but doing the sexual act is. The severe sin the more severe punishment, this severity is meant for the ummah to take very seriously so the act can't spread to masses.

    Here is a Hadith I found in the website of a local mosque which demonstrates that burning was the most severe punishment however Imam Ali as forgives the offender in this case
    Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام)) narrated: “A man appeared before Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) while he was with his companions, confessing: O Amirul-Mo’meneen I have slept with aboy (I.e homosexuality), please purify me. The Imam said to him: Go back home, I’m afraid you have lost your sanity. The next day the same man appeared before the Imam with the same confession, and Imam gave him the same reply. It was until when he appeared before the Imam for the fourth time that the Imam replied: How would you like to be punished? The man said: in the most severe way. The Imam said: that is to burn by fire. He said: I choose that. He then offered two Rak’at prayers and in his Qonoot said: “O Allah! I’ve committed a capital sin and I am concerned about its consequences. O Allah! I came to the successor and the cousin of your Prophet to purify me, and I’ve chosen the most severe punishment. O Allah! I beg you to access this as my retribution and do not burn me in the Hell-Fire in the hereafter. He then finished his prayer and stepped into the punishing pitch while he was crying. Observing the scene ImamAli ((عليه السلام)) and his companions were all in tears. Then the Imam said to the man: Come out! Indeed you made the angels of heaven and Earth cry for you. Lo! Allah has forgiven you, but never do such things again.” (al-Kaafi 7:202).

    000 reacted to Propaganda_of_the_Deed in First time praying at my local (Sunni) masjid   
    So I've been a follower of Ahlul Bayt as since approx 7 years.
    In that time since, I completely stopped going to my local masjid, no excuses other than being a wimp. I was very regular in my Sunni days and knew a lot of people.
    The masjid is on the other road so close I can see it from my place. I have missed praying in a mosque and occaisionally go the main Shia ones when I can but they are in another part of London.
    Anyhow today I decided enough, I read a few old posts on ShiaChat about others doing so, and got emboldened enough to grab my turbah and head there for Asr jamat, insistent on praying our way.
    So I got there, it has changed a lot since I was there, expanded etc. Saw mostly new faces, few old, though they probably forgot who I was.
    Athan goes off, people are praying their nafila salat. I just sat there. I still dislike the feeling of people's eyes on you. I was annoyed at myself for not getting up and praying. I was too shook I guess.
    Whilst waiting, a revert went up to me and greeted me, followed by complimenting my aqeeq ring. He said he only recently read about them, etc.
    So the iqama is read and people form lines, I went to the farthest side on front row. And of course the most salafi looking dude had to be next to me, wearing a white shemagh and thobe and feet wiiiiiide apart.
    I wait for takbir and people to commence before putting my turbah out in front, legs shaking like crazy (smh).
    Did everything wajib, raised hands etc. Left out qunut being mustahab and the 3 takbir at the end. 
    Done some tasbih Fatimat Zahra as and left.
    I know this whole scenario may seem ridiculuous to those among us used to praying with Sunnis, but I always just imagined the worst or someone taking away my turbah etc, especially if anyone knows how entrenched wahabism is in the London Sunni scene.
    I felt a wave of relief and although most probably did not see, I think I will return and also pray nafila too.
    Some may question what purpose there is in this. Some may say for unity. But honestly I just missed praying in congregation.
    Who knows it could rouse some curiosity in others, like that revert brother to investigate further.

    Like a khorasani, you have to explain, Tawhidi doesnt have something with Shirazi (ha). Everyone can visit Syyed Sadiq (ha), and to be honest, before "Imam tawhidi" looks more a smart guy, but in the end, he is just a stupid takfiri and doesnt have akhlaq, like yasser alhabib. Sayyed Sadiq reject these guys.

    000 reacted to Marbles in Your favourite national anthem?   
    I dislike all national anthems. I can't stand them and I can't stand people who pay respects to them.
    These anthems were invented as surrogates of religious prayers after the onslaught of the European Enlightenment and atheism on the traditional religious society. People needed new modes of association so they created nationalism, nation-states, national anthems, and national flags.
    Yes, I also hate flags and flag-waving nationalists - of each and every country.

    He's not making that statement for those reasons, he is wholeheartedly against the very concept of the American Empire.
    What he is doing, is "calling it like he sees it" and getting in on the ground floor so that once this more than likely does occur, he can say "See? I told you that's what they were going to do!"
    Professor Chomsky spends his career arguing against American Imperialism, like I said I'm reading his latest book "Who Rules the World?" currently and it's a pretty scathing indictment of American intervention in the affairs of sovereign nations as a whole.

    Even though I do agree with many of his views, I find it odd that he is free to speak anything he want & is a Professor Emeritus at MIT, the leading institution of the establishment.
    I can't say the same to Finkelstein as he lost his position at DePaul University & much less freedom to disseminate his views.

    I am very proud to present the culmination of nearly ten years of research on the Twelfth Imam, al-Hujja b. a-Hasan, al-Mahdi, al-Qa'im, the Patron of Time, peace be upon him.
    This is by far the most comprehensive English work on the subject.
    It is a compilation of the most ancient and most reliable hadiths on the Mahdi from Twelver Shīʿī sources. Learn about the birth of the Twelfth Imam, his occultation, his ambassadors, his inevitable return, Islamic eschatology, and much more.
    Paperback now available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1790653827

    "... an essential compendium concerning the concept of the Mahdi in the English language ... A highly welcomed effort, it is useful for researchers as well as those wanting to understand the idea of the Mahdi within the context of the classical literature on the subject." -- Sayyid Hussain Makke
    "... a fresh and insightful approach to the translation of traditions concerning the twelfth Imam and the rising of the Qa’im ... it is my hope that this work will be of benefit to all seekers of knowledge who wish to become further acquainted with the Twelfth Imam (ajt) and his coming." -- Shaykh Vinay Khetia
    "A long awaited and much-needed work for the English-speaking world. In an age where skepticism regarding religious beliefs is prevalent, the author has collected many of the reliable traditions on the subject of the Mahdi (a) and has made them readily accessible." -- Sayyid Ali Imran
    "The most comprehensive hadith compilation about the twelth Imam present in the English language." -- Dr. Taymaz Tabrizi
    "Trained in both secular academia and in the sciences of the seminary Bilal Muhammad combines the very best of both worlds especially when it comes to his methodological rigour in selecting the narrations of this work." -- Dr. Francisco Luis

    "It was mentioned before the Imam that a certain man loves to have leadership. The Imam (as) said, 'Two fierce wolves in a flock of sheep, whose shepherd is far away, are not more harmful to the flock than seeking leadership to a Muslim's religion is.'"

    "I heard abu 'Abd Allah, recipient of divine supreme covenant, asking, 'Do you think I do not distinguish the bad from good  among you? Yes, by Allah, the bad ones among you are those who love people walking behind him. Such a person is inevitably a liar or a helpless one (due to his ignorance) in his opinion.'"

    Our tenth imam, Imam Ali Al-Hadi (a) answers beautifully.
    One day the caliph Muntasir said to him, “You consider yourself the most closest creature to Allah and do not consider anyone as your equal in superiority and honor although we are much better and superior to you. If Allah had been pleased with you, you would have been the ruler and we, your subjects.”
    Hearing these stupid words the Imam did not say anything. Again he repeated those words. Again the Imam observed forbearance. When he repeated them the third time, the Imam was infuriated and he said,
    “If temporal kingdom is the proof of rightfulness, every prophet must have been a king. Our superiority is due to our own merits, while your greatness is due to a rulership of limited duration. You rule over physical bodies while we reign over the hearts.”
