  1. salaam, do you know the name of the book he is reading from?
  2. Thoughts on this from Ayatullah Dastghaib Shirazi, author of Greater Sins and Qalb Saleem, close to Imam Khomenie, and attained shahadat https://www.al-islam.org/82-questions-ayatullah-sayyid-abdul-husayn-dastghaib-shirazi/jurisprudence-fiqh#question-58 "Question 58 Q.58: Is the buying and selling of slaves lawful in this age also? ls it allowed to apprehend people from Africa etc. and sell them in other places? Freeing of slaves as expiation for lapsed fasts is ordered in the Holy Quran. If this order is permanent, it has become impracticable today. A: Yes, it is permissible for a Muslim to apprehend an original disbeliever in any way and from anywhere and enslave him provided he is not under treaty or responsibility of any Muslim (Zimmi). After that his buying and selling is allowed. As for the obligation of freeing a slave as expiation in times like this when no slave is available, since slavery is banned, the obligation of freeing of slaves too has been dropped due to impracticabi lity. Its substitute is also not available and in this matter there is no difference between optional expiation and total expiation."
  3. I think he is referring to the infamous "thighing fatwa"... the fatwas are definitely not sane.
  4. so in the afterlife people will continue burning because they will identify with a body and ideas and thoughts? We are talking about dying and living in an afterlife, people being punished for crimes like murder, rape etc. you haven't addressed the question... why people in the AFTERLIFE will continue to burn and be tortured forever and forever, please read the questions.
  5. 1. how do we know all of them can see the heavens, maybe it is a few or some 2. how do you know "most" of them are kafir? may be it is some
  6. I started a similar thread to this, and my last post on it remained unanswered, here are the questions (i changed one word to be more respectful towards God): 1) why does Allah not completely remove these people from existence after they have served their time in hell for their crimes? why keep them burning or in existence to serve what purpose? 2) Finite crimes = finite punishment - I don't see how finite crimes = infinite punishment, these things are not equal 3) if our purpose in life is to know Allah, are these people in hell getting to know some really different side of Allah? what is their purpose of existence in hell? Link to original thread, apologies as I was quite disrespectful in some use of language in this thread, I wrote the replies when I was going through extremely difficult times:
  7. are you Hindu, why are so many of your posts about Hinduism? The Islamic view would be we don't have any proof of this claim. And/or God can keep anyone alive as long as He wishes, like Hazrat Khidr, Imam Mehdi, or Iblees.
  8. I've reached the conclusion that attempting to understand these things with your rational mind is futile. For those that accept the rational arguments and "believe" in a God are not very different from those that reject those rational arguments, believing or not believing are sides of the same coin. You will just continue going in circles with theological argument, something will always pop up to cause doubts... You need to step out of your mind and ignore the doubts...
  9. No, but we get freezing cold water in the shower...and i absolutely hate cold water, but have started enjoying the sensations after few times... also i feel no depression or stress since i started, it's a HUGE help in daily life
  10. I started doing Wim Hof Breathing Method and excercises, it's a 10 week course which has breathing exercises and cold showers... i'm in the first week, it's really amazing.
  11. i agree with your analysis but don't think Nikola Tesla is a great example... he is an outlier, he doesn't represent the average or majority of men...
  12. Yea i wanna add i don't agree with this post nut clarity theory, this is complete nonsense. you can achieve mind clarity and focus through excercise, meditation, breathing practices, or any other acitivity... however the part about not having needs met and urges causing problems in your life I agree with.
  13. i really enjoyed watching this, thanks for sharing... makes me hate the saudis even more, they should allow archeologists to explore these areas!!!
  14. They joined the cult movement in Iraq where this guy claims he is the son, representative, the yamani etc of Imam Mehdi... they made another series called "The Arrived"... these guys have gone totally off rail
  15. I agree with your thread. Marriage doesn't always take care of sexual needs, specially once you have kids... you may not see your wife for weeks at time, or inlaws come over, or some other thing in life happens and it is almost like being celibate. Either muta or multiple marriages is the answer as was practiced by the earliest Muslims. Although I will add you should avoid music, movies, tv, pornography, controlling your eyes etc... that is no excuse.
  16. try these breathing excercises... they will get rid of any cravings and withdrawal symptoms... this plus cold showers
  17. @Fizz786 if do the breathing excercise please write back here and let me know what you felt...
  18. Please try these breathing excercises and read up on Wim Hof. I guarantee that you will get results from your very first 10mins of this...
  19. Look up Wim Hof breathing method... solving these problems with simple breathing excercises
  20. also this: az khuda, juz khuda, cheezy na kha... in farsi, it means, from God, except (for) God, don't ask for anything else in other words only want God from God, and nothing else... personally i have become quite agnostic but starting to feel like i am relearning Islam... i no longer believe in doing 40 day rituals and ziarat recitations... i believe in applying what's written in them
  21. salaam, i wish i had better understanding of what you wanted... prayers on their own are imho not enough, they require action... for example if pray to pass an exam and don't study, of course I can't pass. if i pray for a wife but don't make myself a mature and responsible being, then it may never happen... also consider this that you must earn/work for what you want. how does a non praying person achieve their goals? a person that doesn't believe in God takes responsibility and goes after what they want. so I would say continue praying but also go after what you want by looking at what factors will get your goal.
  22. you won't find much about this in Islamic literature... or it is the same as entering barzakh (while you are alive)... but if you are dreaming, it could be a lucid dream before entering dream/astral realm, do wuzu, and when lucid/dreaming pray or do zikr... and visualize seeing yourself in light. there are many non-islamic resources you can use to learn more. Sheikh Farrokh Sekalashfar is the guy you want if you want a shia scholar and expert on this.
  23. Fair enough. However believers do use secondary sources to prove their primary, for example science is used to demonstrate scientific miracles of the Quran. Can history be used to prove historical claims... maybe, however considering OP's question, I don't think secondary sources can be used. That's all I was stating, don't know why I'm getting chewed up for stating the obvious.
  24. I think there a lot of strange questions that we just can't get answers for. For example, how is God making decisions if He is unchanging? mainly questions related to His Reality, how He manages to operate out of time, etc etc... I only wrote my understanding of things... thanks for your input.
