  1. Doesnt look like it is available at both the above links anymore. Is there anywhere else this can be accessed?
  2. Salamun alaikum So Shias too should not be buying houses via a mortgage as it involves interest and not just Sunnis? Or do Shias ignore this?
  3. Washing the right side of the body before the left side is a recommended precaution not an obligatory precaution so your ghusl seems to be legit.
  4. As far as I am aware, when the redness enters from the easter sky then it is already Fajr time which means that one can offer fajr nawafil during Fajr time, bit it is done before the Fajr prayer. This is how I have understood it. As regards to maghrib and isha the rule according to syed seestani is: The Maghrib Nafilah should be offered after Maghrib prayers, and one should make an effort to offer it in time after Maghrib. However, if one delays offering Maghrib Nafilah till redness in the western sky disappears, then it would be better to offer Isha prayers at that moment. The time for Isha starts as soon as you have completed the maghrib prayers so if you still have time to do the maghrib nawafil then you can do that and straight after that you should be ok to do Isha and there is no need to wait for anything unless you want to wait for the awwal waqt for the Isha prayer. This is just the way I have understood the rulings.
  5. Jazakallah Khair for this. Really appreciate the time you took to give me the links.
  6. Any chance you can give a link to some of the online material like the Readers? I've searched online but none of them are available to download for free apart from the Kalilah wa Dimna (which looks like it is all in Arabic - I was hoping for an Arabic English book)
  7. Salamum alaikum Any ideas if Barley Malt is halal haram? It' s listed as an ingredient in Vimto. Thanks!
  8. The following book covers this subject with examples: Structure and Qur anic Interpretation: A Study of Symmetry and Coherence in Islam s Holy Text (Paperback)
  9. I'd like to see the ruling for this too. First time i've heard this.
  10. Na bro....it's about the Arabic. Muhammadin Muhammadan Muhammadin. All the same meaning. Just are different depending on where they are used in a sentence. Nothing to do with fiqh.
  11. AoA Where is the usual thread with all the lecturers etc? Also anyone know where Hamza Sodagar is reciting this year? Cant seem to find anything since he was "banned" last year
  12. On http://quran.al-islam.org check the tafseer for surah momenoon verse 101 (23:101) onwards.....you will find the agha Haji Mirza Mahdi Pooya state: The Holy Prophet said: "All distinctions and relations shall cease to exist on the day of resurrection except the distinction and relation connected with me." You can also check the tafseer for the same verse in Tafseer Namoona by Makarem Shirazi where he provides the same tradition. The reference given is from Majma Ul Bayan by Shaykh Tabrasi (shia). There are further traditions (albeit from sunni sources which should not in itself discredit them) on shiapen given - just scroll down the page to "Reply – The familial lineage of the descendants of Muhammad (s) shall not be severed on the Day of Judgment": http://www.shiapen.com/comprehensive/non-egalitarian-imamate/hereditary-leadership.html HTH
  13. Wow...comparing Syeds to Khojas Anyhow as much as some people may dislike it: https://www.al-islam.org/a-shiite-creed-shaykh-saduq/concerning-alids-alawiya Also there are other hadith saying things like the only lineage that will remain on the day of jusgement is the lineage of the Prophet saww and all else will be cut off. One more thing...the haters must be bursting with fury by now....surah Fatir verse 32...... Surah Fatir, Verse 32: ثُمَّ أَوْرَثْنَا الْكِتَابَ الَّذِينَ اصْطَفَيْنَا مِنْ عِبَادِنَا فَمِنْهُمْ ظَالِمٌ لِّنَفْسِهِ وَمِنْهُم مُّقْتَصِدٌ وَمِنْهُمْ سَابِقٌ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْكَبِيرُ Then We gave the Book for an inheritance to those whom We chose from among Our servants; but of them is he who makes his soul to suffer a loss, and of them is he who takes a middle course, and of them is he who is foremost in deeds of goodness by Allah's permission; this is the great excellence. (English - Shakir) According to the interpretation of Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir and Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq the reference in this verse is to the progeny of Ali and Fatimah, which is the progeny of the Holy Prophet. (i) There are those who do not recognise Allah's chosen Imam of the age. They are those "who make their souls suffer." (ii) There are those who although recognise the Imam of the age but are not fully aware of the laws ordained by Allah and its proper application in day to day life. (iii) The Imams of the Ahl ul Bayt are Allah's chosen guides who live a godly life governed by perfect knowledge and practical application of all the Quranic injunctions. By their inherent example they stand as guides to humanity, constantly calling the people towards truth and godliness, and forbidding evil in every form.
