    Dawud Miqdad al-Amriki reacted to aliasghark in Iran Sent Pink Drone To Obama   
    This is unimpressive rhetoric.
    You either still don't understand this, or just playing dumb because it hurts so much. Either way: this was, again, a moral victory for Iran over the USA because it not only didn't get its drone back, but also was insulted by a little pink drone :)

    Dawud Miqdad al-Amriki got a reaction from AusRevert in Long- Distance Relationships? Would U Do It ?   
    (salam)
    When I first converted to Islam, I met a fellow Salafi sister, we lived in different countries, we spoke about Islam. I never saw her picture and never heard her voice. I trusted in Allah and loved her innocence and imaan. I proposed to her, she accepted. After our intention to marry, I swore to her I wanted to marry her regardless of what she looked like, then she sent her picture and we began speaking on the phone for the next year.
    We've been married for over 3 years and she is currently pregnant.
    "Do not marry the one you love, love the one you marry" - Imam 'Ali (as)
    Marry for the sake of Allah, love for the sake of Allah, Allah will take care of you if you let Him.

    Dawud Miqdad al-Amriki got a reaction from Ismahan007 in [Closed/Review]Sheikh Al-habib Calls For Shi'a Uprising   
    Both Sheikh Yasser al-Habib and myself do taqleed to Grand Ayatollah Sayed Sadiq Shirazi
    I guess you didn't read the part of my post which said
    I can see that you haven't met and spoken to Sheikh Yasser al-Habib, nor do you have any idea who he is. You clearly cut and pasted from that other thread about him, which is loaded with false information.
    Let me explain briefly, then if you want to discuss, make a new thread, don't carry the discussion on here please, Jazakallah khayra.
    Essentially, Sheikh Yasser al-Habib has studied in Howza for over 12 years, he was a student of Ayatollah Mujtaba Shirazi, and he has been authorized in ijtihaad, meaning that Sheikh Yasser al-Habib is a mujtahid, meaning that he isn't some unknowledgeable fraud like people accuse him of being.
    Sheikh Yasser al-Habib was put in prison in Kuwait for doing La'nat during a private khutbah, where someone recorded it and it was leaked. He was in prison for one year, when he was released, he fled the country with his family because they intended to put him back in prison for 10 years.
    He doesn't have a personal vendetta, he just is talking about the "Arab Spring" and wants to see it be fruitful and not wasted. Just as every respectable scholar and Muslim is hoping happens.
    As for who pays him, he isn't a follower of Khamenei so he isn't getting a huge flow of money for supporting wali al faqih and spreading their ideology. Sheikh Yasser al-Habib lives a very humble lifestyle and drives a beaten up vehicle, Fadak TV doesn't use any sponsors and doesn't show any commercials on their station, so they rely purely on donations to stay running, and it struggles to be honest, but alhamdulilah Allah provides.
    So rather than judging someone without any evidence, let's ask questions humbly seeking knowledge.

    Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad al-Ash‘ari and Muhammad ibn Yahya altogether have narrated from Ahmad ibn Ishaq from Su‘dan ibn Muslim from Mu‘awiya ibn ‘Ammar from abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) who has said the following about the words of Allah. "God has the most blessed Names. You should address Him in your worship by these Names . . ." (7:180) The Imam said, "We, I swear by Allah, are the most blessed names of Allah without which Allah does not accept any of the good deeds of His servants until they know us properly."
    Purified logical deduction:
    Qur'an: "Allah has the most blessed names" (7:180)
    Imam: "Wallahi we are the most blessed names of Allah" (Al-Kafi H 356, Ch. 23, h 4)

    (bismillah)
    My intention with this thread is to answer a few powerful questions with what I believe to be powerful ahadith, insha'Allah. These are my beliefs about the Imams (as) as explained in Al-Qur'an and in ahadith from al-Kafi:
    Some people say we Shi'a do shirk, think that Imams are prophets, or gods, n3udhubilah:
    Al- Kafi H 707, Ch. 53, h 6
    Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Barqi from abu Talib from Sadir who has said that he asked abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) the following. "A certain group of people believe that you are gods. They read to us from the Quran about it. And it is He Who in heaven is God and in earth is God." (43:84). The Imam (a.s.) said, "O Sadir, my hearing, my sight, my skin, my flesh, my blood and my hair are (all) disdain such people, and Allah also disdains them. They do not follow my religion and the religion of my forefathers. I swear by Allah, Allah will not place me with them on the Day of Resurrection. The only thing from Allah to them will be His anger." The narrator has said that he said, "Among us there is a group of people who believe that you are messenger and read to from the Holy Quran. "O Messengers, eat of the good things and do righteousness; surely I know the things you do (23:51). The Imam (a.s.) said, "O Sadir, my hearing, my sight, my skin, my flesh, my blood and my hair are (all) disdain such people, and Allah and Hid Messenger also disdains them. They do not follow my religion and the religion of my forefathers. Allah will not place me with them on the Day of Judgment. The only thing from Allah towards them will be His anger." The narrator has said that he then asked, "What are you then?" the Imam (a.s.) said, "We are the treasuries of the knowledge of Allah. We are the translators of the commands of Allah. We are infallible people. Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has commanded people to obey us and prohibited them to disobey us. We are the complete Divine authority over all that is below the heavens and above the earth."
    Some say against us Shi'a, "Why do you say Ya 'Ali Madad instead of Ya Allah or Ya Muhammad?"
    Al-Kafi H 708, Ch. 53, h 7
    A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from ‘Abdallah ibn Bahr from ibn Muskan from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn abu ‘Abdallah from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said that he heard abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) say the following. "The Imams (a.s.) possess the position of the Messenger of Allah except that they are not prophets and the number of wives permissible for the Holy Prophet is not permissible for them. In the aspects other than these they possess the same positions as the Messenger of Allah did."
    So just what is an Imam? What is the status and quality of an Imam?
    Al-Kafi H 524, Ch. 15, h 2
    Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn 'Isa from al-Hasan ibn Mahbub from Ishaq ibn Ghalib from abu 'Abdallah (a.s.) who has described the condition of the Imams (a.s.) and their attributes in one of his sermons.
    "Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has explained His religion through the Imams of (true) guidance from the family of our Prophet (s.a.) the Ahlul Bayt (a.s.), and has clear through them the path of His system and plan. He has opened through them the inside of the springs of His knowledge. Whoever of the followers of Muhammad (s.a.) has recognized his obligation towards the rights of his Imam he has realized the taste of the sweetness of his faith and the superior beauty of his Islam. It is because Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has appointed the Imam the torchbearer for His creatures and authority over those who receive His blessings of His world. He has crowned him with dignity and has encompassed him in the Light of His Omnipotence. He extends a means to the heavens. The blessings do not discontinue from him. Nothing from what is with Allah is achieved except through its right means. Allah does not accept the good deeds of His servants without one’s recognition of the Imam (a.s.). The Imam (a.s.) knows how to sort out the dark confusing matters and whatever obscures the Sunnah (tradition of the Holy Prophet (s.a.) and the confounding matters in mischievous conditions.
    Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has always been choosing the Imams from the descendants of al-Husayn (a.s.) one after the other Imam. He would select and choose them for the leadership of His creatures delightfully and well satisfied with them. Whenever one Imam would leave this world He would appoint for His creatures his successor as a clear beacon and a shining guide, a guarding leader, a knowledgeable Divine authority. The Imams from Allah guide people with the truth and with the truth they judge. They are Allah’s authority calling people to Him and as shepherds of His creatures. With their guidance people follow the religion and from them the land receive light. Through their holiness the bounties increase. Allah has made them life for the people and the torches in the darkness, the keys to communication and the strongholds for Islam. Thus, has the measures of Allah continued in them towards His final decision.
    "The Imam is the outstanding amicable person, the most trusted guide and the guardian who can make hopes come true. Allah has chosen him with such distinctions. He choose him as such in the realm when all things were in the form of particles in the instance that He made him made him a particle and in the realm in which all things were designed as He had designed him (well-protected) as a shadow??, before He made the organisms, on the right side of His throne, gifted with wisdom in the unseen knowledge with Him. He chose him in His knowledge and granted him outstanding nobility for his purity. He is a heir of Adam, the best one among the descendents, the chosen one of the family of Abraham, a descendent of Ismael and of the most preferred ones in the family of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.). He has always been looked after by the watchful eyes of Allah Who would provide him security and guard him with His shield, well protected against the evil nets of Satan and his armies. He is well defended against the approaching dark nights and the false accusations of the evil doers. All wickedness is kept away from him and he kept safe against all forms of defects and flaws. He is veiled against all the scourge and infallible in the case of sins. He is kept safe and sound against all indecencies. He is well known for his forbearance and virtuousness in the early days of his life and great knowledge, chastity and excellence are ascribed to him towards the end of his life. The task of Imamt (leadership) of his father rests with him while in the lifetime of his father he remained silent.
    When the time of the Imamat (leadership) of his father ends it is the time when the measures of Allah ends up with him to His wish, the will from Allah brings him to His love, thus, the end of the Imamat of his father comes and he passes away. The authority from Allah shifts tohim after his father. He then is made in charge of His religion and the Divine authority over His servants, the guardian over His lands, supported with His spirit and is given of His knowledge. He raises him as a beacon for His creatures, makes him to have His authority over the people of his world and as the light for the people of His religion and a guardian for His servants. Allah will agree to have him as Imam of the people, entrust him with His secret, makes him a safe-keeper of His knowledge, and makes him to hide His wisdom in him. He protects him for His religion calls up on him to serve His great task, revives through him the phases of His system (of religion) and the obligations in His laws.
    The Imam then enforces justice, when the people of ignorance are confused and the disputing and quarrelling people are frustrated, with shining light, the beneficial cure and radiant truth. He would do so with clear explanations of all aspects and just in the manner and practice his truthful father and forefathers would do before him. No one would ignore the rights of such scholar except the wicked ones. No one would struggle against him except those who have strayed away from the right path. No one would keep away from him except those who keep a bold face against Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High.
    Seriously why not just call on Allah, it's shorter, why do something complicated like going through tawassul of Imams?

    Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Ahmad ibn abu Nasr from Hassan al-Jammal who has said that Hashim ibn abu ‘Ammara al-Janbi reported to him this. "I heard Amirul Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) saying, ‘I am the eyes of Allah. I am the hands of Allah. I am the sides of Allah. I am the door to Allah."

    Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Jumhur from Ali ibn al-Salt from al-Hakam and Isma‘il sons of Habid from Burayd al-‘Ijli who has said the following. "I heard Imam abu Ja‘far (a.s.) saying, ‘Through us Allah is worshipped. Through us Allah is known. Through us belief in the Oneness of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, is established. Muhammad is the Hijab (curtain) of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High."

"Allah has two kinds of knowledge. There is the hidden, treasured knowledge of which no one has any information except Allah. From this knowledge comes al-Bada’. Then there is the knowledge that Allah has given to His angels, His messengers and His prophets and we know this knowledge."
    Al-Kafi H 374, Ch. 24, h 11
    It is narrated from Ali ibn Ibrahim from Muhammad ibn ibn ‘Isa from Yunus from Mansur ibn Hazim who has said the following. I asked abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.), "Can anything happen today that was not in the knowledge of Allah the day before?’ The Imam (a.s.) said, "No, this does not happen. Whoever would say so Allah will make him to suffer a great deal." I then said, "Do you consider that all that were there and all that will take place up to the Day of Judgment are all in the knowledge of Allah?" The Imam said, "Yes, it was so before He created the creatures."
    Al-Kafi H 375, Ch. 24, h 12
    It is narrated from Ali ibn Muhammad from Yunus from Malik al-Juhanni who has said the following. "I heard Imam abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) saying, ‘Had the people known of the reward in the belief in al-Bada’ there would have been no weakness in their words about it."
    Qur'an, Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #59
    With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a record clear (to those who can read).
    Qur'an, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #255
    Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Ever-Living, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His; who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases, His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of them both tires Him not, and He is the Most High, the Great.
    Qur'an, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verses 31, 32 & #33
    And He taught Adam all the names, then presented them to the angels; then He said: Tell me the names of those if you are right(31). They said: Glory be to Thee! we have no knowledge but that which Thou hast taught us; surely Thou art the Knowing, the Wise(32). He said: O Adam! inform them of their names. Then when he had informed them of their names, He said: Did I not say to you that I surely know what is ghaib in the heavens and the earth and (that) I know what you manifest and what you hide(33)?

    Dawud Miqdad al-Amriki got a reaction from zeinab94 in Do You Believe In Prophets After Jesus?   
    (bismillah)



    Allahumma sullee 3la Muhammad wa alee Muhammad



    May the peace and blessings of God be upon all of the Prophets, Messengers, and beloved servants of God, their guided and pure families and true companions, ameen.



    The Bible, Matthew 7:15-20



    15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

    According to Matthew 7:15-20, the following logical & scripturally accurate conclusions can be derived:
    Jesus (peace be upon him and his virgin mother Mary) warned of false prophets, which is a relative statement as opposed to the hypothetical absolute statement of "there are no prophets after me"
    Jesus believed there would be at least one Prophet after him
    Jesus explained how to know the Prophet(s) after him
    Jesus used the parable of the "good tree" and "bad tree" to know a Prophet of God and a deceiver of Satan

    Read the following Islamic narrations and Qur'anic verses regarding the "good fruit":


    The Noble Qur'an, Chapter 14: IBRAHIM (ABRAHAM)



    have you not seen how Allah sets forth a parable that a good deed is like a good tree, its roots are firm and its branches are in the heaven, (24)



    yielding its fruit every season by the permission of Allah? Allah gives parables to mankind so that they might remember. (25)



    the likeness of a corrupt word is like a corrupt tree uprooted from the earth having no stability. (26)

    H , Ch. 108, h 78
    A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn Sayf from his father from ‘Amr ibn Harith who has said the following. "I asked abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) about the words of Allah. ". . . a blessed tree which has firm roots and branches rising up into the sky." (14:24) The Imam (a.s.) said that the The Holy Prophet (s.a) said, "The root is Amir al- Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) and the branches are the Imams from their (Amir al-Mu’minin (a.s.) and The Holy Prophet (s.a) descendants and the knowledge of Imams stand for the fruits. Their faithful followers represent the leaves of such tree." The Imam (a.s.) asked, "Is there anything else in the tree?" I said, "No, there is nothing else there. The Imam (a.s.) then said, "By Allah, when a faithful is given a child a leave grows in the tree and when a faithful dies a leave falls off the tree."
    Now let us consider the following historical facts:
    No claimant to prophecy after Jesus has even drawn near to the success & status of Muhammad son of `Abdullah, the Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him & his pure family)
    No major religion or scripture has come after Jesus which acknowledged Jesus and the Bible as previous revelations and guides
    No other scripture after Jesus has agreed and propogated the parable of the "good tree" and "bad tree" except for The Noble Qur'an



    The Bible, John 16:7-13



    7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.



    12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

    Now consider the following narrations from the offspring of the Prophet of Islam:
    Al-Kafi Ch56, h1.
    abu Basir said: "I asked abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) about the words of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High. "Thus, We have revealed a Spirit to you, (Muhammad), by Our command. Before, you did not even know what a Book or Faith was, . . ." (42:52) The Imam (a.s.) said, "He is a creature of the creatures of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High greater than Jibril and Mika’il. He was with the Messenger of Allah to give him news and protected him and he is with the Imams after the Messenger of Allah."
    Al-Kafi Ch56, h3.
    abu Basir said: "I asked abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) about the words of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High. "They ask you about the Spirit. Say, "The Spirit comes by the command of my Lord. . . ." (17:85). The Imam (a.s.) said, "He is a creature greater than Jibril and Mika’il. He was with the Messenger of Allah and he is present with the Imams. He is from the realm of the angels."
    Al-Kafi Ch56, h5.
    abu Hamzah said: "I asked abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) about the knowledge. Is it a knowledge that the scholar learns from the mouths of the people or it is in the with you from which you read and then learn therefrom." The Imam (a.s.) said, "The issue is greater and more urgently needed. Have you not heard the words of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, "Thus, We have revealed a Spirit to you, (Muhammad), by Our command. Before, you did not even know what a Book or Faith was, . . ." (42:52)?" The The Imam (a.s.) said, "What does your people say about this verse? Do they read that he was as such that he did not know what the or the was?" I said, "I do not know, "May Allah take my soul in service for your cause, what they say." The Imam (a.s.) then said, "Yes, he lived in a condition wherein he did not know the book and the faith untill Allah, the Most High, sent the Spirit who is mentioned in the book. When the Spirit was inspired (sent) to him he learned through him the knowledge and understanding. He is the Spirit whom Allah, the Most High grants to whoever He wants. When He grants him to a servant he teaches him understanding."
    - We acknowledge the existence of a powerful "Ruh" or Spirit, which some Christians have labeled "The Holy Spirit", however we believe that the verses in the Bible (namely John 16:7-13) speaking of a "Spirit of Truth" were referring not to this "Holy Spirit", rather to the Final Prophet, Muhammad Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå.


    The Noble Qur'an, Chapter 53: AN-NAJM (THE STAR)



    by the star when it plunges, (1)



    your companion is neither astray, neither errs, (2)



    nor does he speak out of desire. (3)



    indeed it is not except a revelation which is revealed, (4)

    From the above verses of the Bible (John 16:7-13) and from the Islamic Hadith and Qur'an (53:1-4), the following observations can be drawn:
    Jesus had to go away, to God in Heaven, where his followers could not follow
    If he doesn't go away, then "The Advocate" also known as "The Spirit of Truth" will not come
    When "The Advocate" does come, he will prove the world to be wrong about sin...
    "The Advocate" will also guide all into the truth, and only speak what he hears
    Muhammad only spoke what he heard, as per Qur'an and Hadith

    So the two main questions which beckons the intellect to reckon are...
    Who is the Prophet after Jesus?
    What nation of that succeeding Prophet represents the "good tree" after Jesus?

    Really it's not a license to run around like an animal, rather practice self-control and if that begins to fail, then satisfy yourself in a halaal way, don't be sleezy about it.
    I encourage everyone to do Mutah who is single and who is tempted to masturbate or fornicate, because these are haraam, but remember that the girl is your sister in faith and you should respect her and not just be using her in a cheap unIslamic way. It should be according to Qur'an which says clearly:
    The Qur'an 4:24
    And all married women except those whom your right hands possess (this is) Allah's ordinance to you, and lawful for you are (all women) besides those, provided that you seek (them) with your property, taking (them) in marriage not committing fornication. Then as to those whom you profit by, give them their dowries as appointed; and there is no blame on you about what you mutually agree after what is appointed; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise.
    So seek lawful marriage, temporary or permanent, but with the intention of abstaining from sin, not the intention of devouring your desires like a drug-addict.

    Dawud Miqdad al-Amriki got a reaction from Hamzi in Long- Distance Relationships? Would U Do It ?   
    (salam)
    When I first converted to Islam, I met a fellow Salafi sister, we lived in different countries, we spoke about Islam. I never saw her picture and never heard her voice. I trusted in Allah and loved her innocence and imaan. I proposed to her, she accepted. After our intention to marry, I swore to her I wanted to marry her regardless of what she looked like, then she sent her picture and we began speaking on the phone for the next year.
    We've been married for over 3 years and she is currently pregnant.
    "Do not marry the one you love, love the one you marry" - Imam 'Ali (as)
    Marry for the sake of Allah, love for the sake of Allah, Allah will take care of you if you let Him.

    Look,
    There are different stages for all different aspects of life.
    You might have better salat and 'aql than your friends, and they might have better ikhlaas...
    Marrying without looks is ikhlaas and hikmah, being able to pierce the veil of the illusion of this dunya.
    Click the link in my signature and read that, inshaalah it will put this dunya into perspective as the illusion it truly is.
    Once you realize this, then everything becomes small & insignifcant except for Allah, which is why we say "ALLAHU AKBAR" but we don't understand it fully. Thus, all that truly matters is that which brings us closer to Allah, everything else is bad, and we cannot say it is good or we're lying to ourselves.
    But everyone struggles (jihaad) for these different levels and areas of self-improvement. Do the best you can and don't feel bad about yourself, Allah is al-Wadood most Loving, He doesn't want to see you suffer, but He wants to free you from the chains you place on yourself.

    I made some dawah videos on youtube and she contacted me to say salaam and congratulations on my conversion etc...
    I convinced her that cult was not true after speaking to her before we married. I had been reading Bukhari and was spending hours and hours every day doing so, the truth came to the surface very quickly and I had to show her as well.
    She is Shi'a.
    I'm not radical akhi, I just follow the books and wait anxiously and patiently for Imaam az-Zaman (ajtf).
    I speak the truth inshallah and I enjoin good and forbid evil, I expose misguidance wherever I see it, and I try my best to combat the forces of evil however I can.
    If that's radical then the opposite is just plain lazy and more fearful of Creation than the Creator.
    Jazakallah khayra, ameen to your du'a, may Allah bless and guide you and make you happy always and give you good in this life and in the hereafter, ameen. (wasalam)

    You've had Muta before? Lol
    I agree with the premise of this thread though, too many people are just dating like all of their non-Muslim friends and calling it Muta.

    Your story is very beautiful MashaAllah. One of my friend who wears niqab married recently and she never showed her face to her husband before they did the nikah cuz he told her he wasn't intrested in how she would look like but how he wants her to be in line with the teachings of Islam. I insisted she must show him her face atleast once b4 they marry which she didnt pay attention to. Alhamdulilah they're both happily married now. May Allah give them children ya Rab. but me, personally i feel like i have to be attracted to my future husband and same for him. I can not imagine to marry someone im not attracted to thier looks just bcos of thier religion. i know very well eman and akhlaq should be the basis of everything we do but i just feel like this. do you think this kind of mentality is somewhat not right? is it possible to give no attention whatspever to looks and have beautiful marriage? thanks bro.
