  1. Brother, one must realise that shias get their hadith from the imams as well. They have clearly stated that crying for imam husayn carries great reward. And only crying for him is allowed. The prophet (s) would not make this news open in his life time. Some things aren't told to everyone until it takes place. And prophet who would know the details of that event can cry over it before hand unlike anyone. Satan wasn't openly cursed either, not until he did the deed. This is just an analogy to help you understand. Anyway as for self flagellation, it has no part in sunnah of the imams either. But the Islamic shria needs definite proof to ban something and consider it haram. The jaloos and events where zanjeer zani takes place or that of 'jalsa' what are the islamic rulings on how to demonstrate in a jalsa? But then again this thread was for matam and not blood letting.
  2. +98 937 300 6220 this is whatsaap for Ayatollah makrem shirazi.
  3. the question was reward of sunnah vs that of wajib. Some sunni brothers just cant wrap their head around the reward of ziyaarah being so much, and then why would anyone do hajj. i Just pointed them to something similar that they themselves believe in. To help them understand. As for a place being Holy, Why do we do saee, why are safa and marwa holy? why is masjid al aqsa holy? karbla is also one of those important lands where many things happened, like the birth of isa(as) according to shia traditions, The place where the leader of all those in paradise was martyred, in order to save islam. All Muslims visit Makkah and Madinah. But Mostly the shias visit Shrine of imam Hussain as. It has become a place which still differentiates truth from falsehood, spreads the message of islam. That could be among the reasons why it is more sawab to visit kerbala.
  4. Kabah is the house of God, makes it more Holy. But then again as a Land if traditions say Karbala is more Holy then it is. If it says madinah is then it is. I don't question the word of the prophet. I remember reading kerbala is the holiest land. I might be wrong. Anyway that is not even the point.
  5. Not someone, many many people tell you that china exists. You would be stupid to not believe them. And lets say if you dont go to china you will suffer for eternity. Would you not take the path to china? Likewise over the years so many prophets came and mystics that say God exists. We have 'seen'. So take the path to God, and when you reach the end you will find Him. I assure you.
  6. The reward of visiting kerbala is way more according to shia traditions, and the land if kerbala is holier still. Yet Hajj is a wajib Act. A wajib act comes before sunnat act. I wonder why do Muslims pray the entire year, when the reward of praying on layl latul qadr is that of praying a 1000 months. 83.33 years.
  7. Ayatollah Syed Sistani: Q: What is the ruling for plucking of the eyebrows in general, and what is the ruling if it is just to clean, and is it obligatory for a woman after plucking to cover her plucked eyebrows before non-mahram men? A: It is permissible and covering is not obligatory. Sunnis dont like it. I think its not allowed for you guys.
  8. As far as i know, its not haram. Check your marjaa tho.
  9. What are the rules on segregation of masjids. Female worshipers and male worshipers are separated by a barrier mostly. Is it necessary? What are islamic rules on this? And how about in kaaba?
  10. How can both be Arif, why dont they convert to either of the one sect. They both meet the prophet (s) and the imams (as). Then how can we say the others are wrong?

    Faith...

    Try to understand the words you say during prayers. Humble yourself and even try to cry(be it pretentious at first- it will come naturally afterwards) by thinking of the magesty of God and your lowliness and sins and reflect afterwards. It will soften your heart and would let wisdom in. Read the first two volumes of Al Kafi. It will help your belief and faith in God, the prophet (s) and the aimah (as).
  12. There is no such thing in this case, there are stories. And there are always more then one side to a story. Remember, the victor always write the history.
  13. Again study the people of bani isreal, how many trails they went through. They also had a prophet teaching over them. They weren't over powered, they just went with the follow of what hastily happened at saqifa(planned by the Genius minds who wantes power). Just like the ummah of Musa(as). This ummah did the exact same thing. Even there was a imam among them, yet still. Any people who object on such petty things as usamah being the commander as being young is not fit on the order ofthe prophet or not bring a pen and paper and make noises while prophet is in asking for it are simple people who have little marifat on the prophet,
  14. On whom does magic work? I am not even sure if that 'magic' was even something too much that can't be denied by a intelligent mind. It wad just a cow from whom voice came. Tell me would ypu believe that cow is Allah? So basically samiri confused the simple people into believing that Allah is the cow nauzubilllah. And you don't expect the normal masses to do the same all over again -(quran is there to show the mentality of people), when they found out someone else(because of being power hungry heretic) became a caliph. Their simple minds just followed what they were told.

    Faith...

    Look around, Everything you see is a sign of God. And yes keep practicing, try to learn. Read the words of the Ahlul bayt and Quran, you will find God.
  16. Its more about refining your religion, keep getting closer to the truth, layman sunnis are on truth, layman shias i believe are on more truth then layman sunnis. whereever you may find truth take it.
  17. Sure she goes to heaven, God is the best judge, doesn't change a thing. it is forbidden to slander the wife of the prophet (s) mutawattir form your sources. Ali(as) is better then you, he used to never skip tahjjud, fought in battles, was martyered. does that mean you are at his level too? funny. No one needed comparing prophet himslef showed if abu bakr and umar cant conquer a simple fort. how do you expect them to lead the Muslim ummah. Whatever he did had reason behind it,
  18. And on to the next topic... And the next.. completely missng the points.. As for what Hazrat Ammar bin Yasir said, i agree with it. Even tho its from the sunni hadith, With All due respect she is the umm ul momineen. But yes we can have bad mothers. We still respect them as its our part to do. Funny you bring traditions(always trying to prove Abu bakr and umar better, what other options did they even have to justify everything) from 'your' books to prove a point to 'me', so it has come to this.. What being described for umar bring the quality of Hazrat Abu zarr himself. Interesting. The usual Abu bakr is better then Ali (as).. Try to look at fact, Look at all the wars with the Prophet Look at a Khyber. Abu bakr and umar being so nosy always got their chance. Still retreated. Only then Ali(as) was sent who never turns back until he wins or is slain while fighting. The difference is clear. Just words dont work. We have traditions who say Ali(as) is better then everyone.. yours say otherwise. Which arr usually forcefull. Like hussan and hussain being the master of all the youths. Abu bakr and umar of the adults .-. Or ali being the gate of the city of knowledge and abu bakr bring the ciels or window or whatever i heard from the sunnis. Anywho May Allah Guide us All. And we all leave our pride and our love for people that is there because of pride. And love the truth. Ameen.
  19. And you missed all the points in my post. I see this as a useless exercise now. Jihad e akbar. Its the answer to your question. Then well later on(for your satisfaction) you can see true Muslims fighting as well against the by products of saqifa at karbala. Or the place where Hazrat Ammar yasir was killed by thr group on the wrong. Or Abu zarr who was exiled Yeah those who fought 'alongside' Ali (as) and those who 'followed' Ali(as) - BIG DIFFERENCE.
  20. Yes Allah promised that if they all apostated he will bring better people. And he indeed did and keep bringing them. Unfortunately always the righteous were less. You will find that theme in the Quran more then anywhere. Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 8.584 Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, "Some of my companions will come to me at my Lake Fount, and after I recognize them, they will then be taken away from me, whereupon I will say, ‘My companions!’ Then it will be said, ‘You do not know what they innovated (new things) in the religion after you.”(also Sahih Muslim, part 15, pp 53-54) Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 8.586 Narrated Ibn al-Musaiyab: "Some men from my companions will come to my Lake-Fount and they will be driven away from it, and I will say, ‘O Lord, my companions!’ It will be said, ‘You have no knowledge of what they innovated after you left: they turned APOSTATE as renegades (reverted from true Islam)." (also Sahih Muslim, part 10, p64, also P59) The case of companions being settled, Didn't the ummah of Musa(as) sacrifice? Didn't they turn away? Those who came back from baqra to haroon they were lucky. But those who didn't. Sedly. The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “I wish I could see my brothers, (the Companions said) aren’t we your brothers O Prophet of Allah? He replied: No, you are my Companions. My brothers are those who come after me and believe in me without seeing me.” (Ahmed, sahih) Apparently their faith was 40 times of that of companions, again from your hadiths My point being, its self explanatory :3
  21. Perhaps like the ummah of musa(as). Where hazrat musa left (as) left for sometime. And left haroon (as) over the people. Instead of listening to Musa (as) they started worshipping the baqra And here when our prophet(as) left his haroon behind. They started 'worshipping' Abu bakr. When musa came back he fixed things. So will our prophet.
  22. Know thyself. Brother God is in no need for our knowing Him, but only through knowing Him we can achieve perfection which we were created for. ـ الإمامُ عليٌ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): نالَ الفَوزَ الأكبَرَ مَن ظَفِرَ بِمَعرِفَةِ النَّفسِ. Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘The one who attains knowledge of his own self has obtained the greatest victory indeed.’[Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 9965] ـ الإمامُ عليٌ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): كَيفَ يَعرِفُ غَيرَهُ مَن يَجهَلُ نَفسَهُ؟! Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘How can one who is ignorant of his own self expect to know others?!’[Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 6998] ـ الإمامُ عليٌ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): مَن عَرَفَ نَفسَهُ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ . Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘He who attains inner knowledge of his self attains inner knowledge of his Lord.’[Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 7946] ـ الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ في وَصِيَّتِهِ لِجابِرٍ الجُعفيِّ ـ: لا مَعرِفةَ كَمَعرِفَتِكَ بِنَفسِكَ. Imam al-Baqir (AS) said in his advice to Jabir al-Ju`afi, ‘There is no inner knowledge like your inner knowledge of your own self.’[Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, no. 286] ـ الإمامُ زينَ العابدينُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ في الدُّعاءِ ـ: واجعَلنا مِنَ الّذين عَرَفوا أنفُسَهُم ، وأيقَنوا بِمُستَقَرِّهِم ، فكانَت أعمارُهُم في طاعَتِكَ تَفنى. Imam Zayn al-Abidin (AS) said in one of his supplications, ‘Make us from among those who have attained inner knowledge of their selves and are convinced of their true abode, such that they spend their whole lives in Your obedience.’[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 94, p. 128, no. 19] ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): أفضَلُكُم إيماناً أفضَلُكُم مَعرِفَةً. The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘The ones from among you with the best faith are the ones with the best inner knowledge.’[Jami`a al-Akhbar, p. 36, no. 18] ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): العِلمُ أوَّلُ دَليلٍ، والمَعرِفَةُ آخِرُ نِهايَةٍ. Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Knowledge is the first proof whereas inner knowledge is the last step in the conclusion.’[Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 2061] ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): نورُ الحِكمَةِ الجُوعُ، والتَّباعُدُ مِنَ اللّه‏ِ الشِّبَعُ ، والقُربَةُ إلَى اللّه‏ِ حُبُّ المَساكينِ والدُّنُوُّ مِنهُم ، لا تَشبَعوا فَيُطفَأَ نورُ المَعرِفةِ مِن قُلوبِكُم. The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘The light of inner knowledge is brought about by hunger whereas distance from Allah is caused by satiety. Proximity to Allah is brought about by loving the poor and drawing near to them, so do not eat to your fill lest the light of inner knowledge be extinguished from your hearts.’[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 70, p. 71, no. 20] And it is through trails of this that we acquire this knowledge. Thus the maqsad e hayat. Also to have merit for our progression. Wasalam.
  23. The ability to dream and everything else is an Ayatollah.
  24. Dear samia, God is with you all the time, He listens to your every prayer, every cry, every joy. He tests you according to your limit. Not more. He made you stronger then most that's why he gave you a difficult test. So you get to higher ranks. You are special to Him. Trust Him since he really loves you. You are His creature. He wants you to find yourself in these 60-70 years of life. And give you eternity(to elaborate that is like 9999999999999999999999999999999 years and endless more) of happiness with all your loved ones waiting for you there. Your mother will be there too. Trust your Creator. He is the Most Merciful. We here will also pray for you iA.
