  1. You poor distressed soul. We have to learn that we cannot vanquish and eviscerate our insecurities and pains by erecting an unsustainable facade of disdain and indifference around ourselves. You will perhaps come to the realisation that pure love, the love that does not in the slightest anticipate reciprocity, is the only state of happinness. By denying this fact you are self immolating but you are simultaneously deluding yourself into thinking that your imaginary adversaries are burning within a furnace. I pray for your healing, whomever you are.
  2. In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful, Dear brothers and sisters I was just thinking about an issue that was quite interesting to me and I would appreciate some comments from you. It is often said that we cannot seek intercession from Rasool Allah (SAW) in this life because He (SAW) is only one person and surely one person cannot simultaneously listen to and "communicate" with thousands, millions, or potentially billions of people at a given point in time. While this seems reasonable enough I was thinking about dreams of Rasool Allah (SAW). To be more specific, if it is true that
  3. I begin in the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent the Most Merciful. I think that one of the hardest things for anyone in anytime and social milieu to do is to objectively assess the customs and practices of people living in completely different times and conditions, and the age of Aisha i.e. when she married the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him and his family) is obviously no exception, as is attested by the enormous amount of malicious material flooding the internet. However, it is my humble opinion that throughout the past decade or so i.e. the period of time when the age of Ais
  4. Remember that one of Satan's most evil actions is to convince the believers that Allah's (SWT) forgiveness and mercy is beyond reach. In other words don't ever lose hope in the mercy of the Most Merciful, the forgiveness of the Most Forgiving, truly Allah's (SWT) benevolence encompasses even the most wretched and wicked. Every time you are engulfed by despair remember that it is Satan that is inciting you to reject Allah (SWT) and that Allah (SWT) never will reject you. Once you truly accept that fact your despair will be transformed from debilitating depression to a recognition that you have
  5. In the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful, This Sheikh appears to be quite informed: http://alhilli.net/questions-answers/. But if I were you I would undertake my own independent research first because without an adequate base of knowledge asking questions will not give you satisfaction and better understanding. Remember that religion is like anything else i.e. you get out what you put in and therefore doubts can only be transformed into certainty through the acquisition of knowledge. Try reading articles on http://en.shiapen.com/ which is a Shia website that almost entirely
  6. Some of the people have already touched upon the reasons why there is much discontent (to put it lightly) with the actions of the Sahaba but I think that you are missing one fundamental point and that is that you have not inherited the pains, torment and anguish that has been passed on from generation to generation of each Shia on the face of the earth. You are a person who has just been recently acquainted with Islam and have not delved into the dark and to put it frankly barbaric behaviour of the early Islamic community. Try to conceive of this scenario and try your hardest to truly live it
  7. Verse 4:64 of the Holy Qur'an may shed some light on the topic at hand: "And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah . And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, [O Muhammad], and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful."
  8. For those who believe that the reality of the Imam (as) of our time is reliant on our five senses perceiving him (as) then ponder over the following Holy Quranic verses. We created man and We know what his own self whispers to him. We are nearer to him than his jugular vein. AND THE TWO RECORDING ANGELS ARE RECORDING, SITTING ON THE RIGHT AND ON THE LEFT. HE DOES NOT UTTER A SINGLE WORD, WITHOUT A WATCHER BY HIM, PEN IN HAND! (Surah Qaf, 16-18) STANDING OVER YOU ARE GUARDIANS, NOBLE, RECORDING, WHO KNOW WHAT YOU DO. (Surat al-Infitar, 10-12) EVERYONE HAS A SUCCESSION OF ANGELS IN FRONT OF HIM
  9. If I am not mistaken I remember something about Umar's son being scared of being brought to justice for the killing of Persian's following the killing of his father i.e. Ibn Umar had essentially committed murder by killing Persians who had no connection with Abu Lulu. This would explain why he was unsupportive of the Caliphate of Imam Ali (as) because he was quite certain that his crimes would have to be punished and he possibly feared being executed if he was subjected to a trial by a just and righteous Khalifa i.e. Ali (as). But he knew that Muawiyah was a duplicitous, immoral, Machiavellian
  10. It is an act of justice and it is not an act of love or hate. It is something which is essential to any logical and coherent religion. For a God to be just there must be a date of reckoning where every deed committed by a human being is assessed by the an absolutely knowledgeable, merciful, and just judge i.e. Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. If there is no such thing as hell and heaven then our lives on earth, which are nothing more than a test, are ultimately meaningless. Moreover, if there was no divine punishment/reward in the afterlife then this would imply a God (assuming one exists) who is extremel
  11. Hahahahaha the Germans and the allies didn't have much animosity towards each other, all you can state in support of that view is one world war and tens of millions of people dead. Man, if you can't see how tens of thousands of dead Muslims is not extreme hate for each other than you are swimming in an infinite ocean of self delusion. Some times I wonder how the khalifa followers can even claim such unbelievable things. LOL let's blame it all on some mythical figure called ibn Saba and not on Aisha (LA) who was ordered in the Quran to STAY IN HER HOME, WARNED BY RASOOLALLAH (as) ABOUT WARRING
  12. Woe to one who rejects the existence of absolute morality, Degrading us to the base nature of moral bestiality, Animalistic in our nature, with all actions relativist, In a world of rape, murder, and cruelty, we beseech a guide, a moralist, We shall perish without the literary legacy of al Mustafa (as).
  13. The title of this thread is pretty ironic and both hypocrtical. On the one hand the originator of the thread calls for democracy, which I assume ensures freedom of individual expression, and other hand seems to be condemning Islamic practices. Let's assume that these practices are actually "Islamic", what makes them reprehensible in a state of nearly unrestricted freedom? That is to say, why do you care what they think and are preaching if they are not forcing you to conform to their views? How many Nazi's are there in your country that preach the extermination of Muslims? How many sadomasachi
  14. Any honest human being would admit to the fact that if the Prophet (as) did not appoint a successor then he would have made a monumental mistake because there would be no doubt that an absence of a successor would cause conflict within the Muslim community. A question to the Bakri's: has any Prophet in history ever left this world without leaving a successor? If the Prophet left no successor than what was the point of Ghadir Khumm? You actually think that the Prophet (as) would gather everyone in the desert heat just to announce that Imam Ali (as) is his friend? LOL!! You people are just as de
  15. It has been quite interesting to see the posts of my brothers and sisters with respect to tabarra and the dissociation from the enemies of Allah (SWT) and his chosen representatives i.e. RasoolAllah (as) and the Ahlul Bayt (as). Many people are of the opinion that we should not publicly engage in such acts because they antagonise the Bakri's and incite them to murder our brothers and sisters in retaliation. However, I am interested to know how people opposed to public tabarra feel about the 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel. Particularly, how do they feel with respect to the fact that the
