Salaam wa alaykum
Brother, I have noticed and this is a small observation I have made, that from your previous posts. I see you are quite learned on many aspects of Islam but in particular the area of Shia/Sunni and as a Student of the Religion of Islam I enjoy reading and hearing the opinions of the many knowledgeable people on this site and of course elsewhere.
But I have one small issue with you and that's your insults towards the Followers of other Schools. Why call them Bakris? Really? What's the need? They (some, I don't mean to generalise) call us Kafir, and other names, so by us going and calling them names we are only sinking down to there level, no in fact going beneath there level and doing worse by retaliating in a similar way.
There is no need to resort to name calling and abuse of any kind. We have our jurisprudencial opinions and they have theirs. Also I have visited the site you previously had as a signature if I am not mistaken? I think it's Yasir Habib's site, and frankly I wasnt impressed. I received the impression that this was a hate website against the followers of other schools within the religion and certain individuals that they hold high respect for. That guy, is openly causing fitna by using his tongue and its harming the Muslim Ummah.... Dividing us further.
Doesnt the Quran say say: "And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided. — 3:103
Openly abusing certain individuals that other schools respect isn't going to close the gap of disunity is it? No, it will expand it!
We are brothers in religion so why do you call your fellow Muslims with such derogatory names?
I don't mind who you follow or listen to but when you see or hear something a "sheikh" says or does, make sure you check if it's in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF).
I'll leave you to ponder over this verse from the Holy Qur'an:
"O you who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong." — Qur'an 49:11
They wish to be called "Sunni's" so we should respect that and call them by their names they have chosen and not with an offensive nickname that I see you and others using.
May Allah (swt) help you realise the harm you are unintentionally causing, inshAllah
thebeast reacted to guest 34193 in Banned Members
A quick announcement so that folks be clear on an important issue. As folks should already know (and common sense dictate anyhow) once a member has been banned, this is not an invitation for them to go ahead and create a new account under a new username. Some individuals however don't seem to get that point, and will repeatedly attempt to come back under new aliases. It often isn't too hard to spot the offender though, and for an admin to then ban them. However, it results in an annoying cycle of ban, re-register, ban again, and so on, much to our chagrin and to the detriment of the forum's quality (after all, there's a reason they were banned in the first place.)
As such, the rules have been amended to clarify what will happen to repeat offenders of banned account (originally left it a bit vague with something like will be banned immediately with further punishment or something). Now it reads:
So, if someone gets banned, and they come back posting again, they should realize that all the hard work they're doing in ruining our forum will get erased once they are caught, in sha Allah. The point of this and other policies is not for the admins and mods to act like autocrats, but to try to improve the overall quality and experience of the site for all of us (non-banned) members.
thebeast reacted to Muntaqim Force in How To Approach Your Woman By Shariah!
This is not non sense but what is going on in most part of the world but i am sure no one practice such non sense even if they believe. It is impossible for a man and woman to restrict themselves once they are in intimate envrionment. May be people come up with such rules to disturb other people's sex life.
thebeast got a reaction from gogiison2 in Eid-e-miladunnabi : Urgent Answer Needed !
I was having this discussion with a Wahhabi friend of mine last night. He went on with the usual stuff why celebrate it?, whats the philosophy behind it?. He said people waste a lot of money in celebrating it which can be used to end hunger and so on. Now instead of debating on whether Islam allows it or not I asked what difference does it make and how is it against the principles of Islam.
Its simply a way of remembering someone important and expressing our affection(if we have some) for him. We don't worship him or anything on that day, do we?. As far as the poor and hungry are concerned, they are the happiest people on that day. After all they do get free food that people give out in the name of Allah for the love of Muhammad(PBUHP).
thebeast got a reaction from Hameedeh in Mawla
Both shias and a vast majority of sunnis agree upon the event of Ghadir Khum when the Prophet(PBUHP) said "Whomsoever Iam Mawla of, Ali(AS) is his Mawla". Now both sects dispute on the meaning of Mawla. Sunnis correctly state that Mawla has about 25 different meanings. It may mean friend, teacher, master, guide and so on.
So why would the Prophet create this confusion? Now upon closer inspection of this hadis, the Holy Prophet is also calling himself our Mawla and hence leaving no room for confusion or misintrepretation. If we believe that the prophet is our teacher, then Ali is our teacher...If we believe that the prophet is our friend, then ali is our friend...if we believe that the prophet is our guide, then ali is our guide and if the prophet is our master, then ali is our master too. Thus the meaning of mawla that we attribute to Hazrat Ali (as) must be the same as the one we attribute to Hazrat Muhammad (PBUHP). Even if we accept mawla in all 25 of its meanings, the position of Ali (A.S) cannot be disputed.
thebeast got a reaction from AkbarHassan in Why I Am Against Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaf?
I would have to agree with Mr. Aabis over here. His main problem are his proTaliban policies. He's recruiting the kind of people whom he was initially against and this goes to show his actual intention is to get in power. There are big names in his party who are potential Prime Ministers and can easily overpower him even if PTI comes to power.
