  1. First of all, I don't think we view him as a "divine" imam...the 12 imams are simply successors chosen by Allah (swt) and Rasulullah (saw) to preserve the message and protect Islam from any innovations. Second of all, If we ignore the event of ghadeer (that alone speaks for itself).. If we ignore how Rasulullah (saw) told Imam Ali (as) that Ali is to him as Haroon (as) was to Moussa (as) (when Allah (swt) tells us in the qur'an that Haroon was Moussa's minister during his absence APPOINTED by Allah (swt)....) Let's ignore the battle of khaibar and uhud...Let's also ignore the fact that Imam Al
  2. I have a few questions which I am not able to find answers to and are seriously casting doubts in me... How do we know the ghulaat beliefs haven't infiltrated our ahadeeth? I was never aware of the ghulaat before but recently read about them and it seems like some aspects of christianity, sufism and "ghulaat" have had an influence. I just finished reading the book "A calm dialogue between sunnah & shia" and the author showed a lot of narrations from usul al kafi and bihar al anwar which seem contrary to what the Qur'an teaches.. Basically my question is, how authentic are our ahadeeth? Why
  3. It means they CAN sin but they don't sin. Technically, they are physically capable of grabbing a cup of alcohol and drinking it or lying for example but they would never commit such sins because they truly fear and love Allah (swt), believe in Him and are inspired by Him to stay away from ALL sins, minor and large. Only an infallible Imam merits the title "Prince of Believers" or Amir'ul Mu'mineen because the Imam represents the perfect example for all believers of his time... Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet's] household, and to purify yo
  4. Remember these words: Shia Islam is true Islam and is expanding every day.
  5. Only the 12 Imams are infallible. Their siblings and sons/daughters are not infallible.
  6. The sheikh also kept insisting that Shi'as claim to follow AhlulBayt but in reality we don't, just like how Christians claim to follow Jesus (as) but they don't. In reality, it is the Sunnah who claim to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (saw) but they are the ones who don't follow the true Sunnah. Few examples of the bid'a, taraweeh, washing their feet in wudhu', pointing their index finger upwards during tashahud. They but claim to follow the Sunnah, but they actually follow the Sunnah of the companions. They also CLAIM to love Ahlul Bayt, but history shows how these so called companions mis-
  7. If we are to bring God's will into this then I could easily tell you that God willed the strongest religion in the world to associate a son with Him (astaghfirullah) or that God willed the persecution of the early companions. I watched the video but he doesn't make sense in a lot of things he says. First of all to claim that the Shi'as beliefs are baseless, he's obviously in denial. Second of all, he keeps saying that Imam Ali (as)'s daughters married from Ahlul Sunnah. Ahlul Sunnah didn't even exist as a term back then, not until hundreds of years later. When they later formed the 4 schools o
  8. Wa Alaykom As-Salam, I know you must be in a lot of pain right now. Very sorry to hear that. There is nothing in Islam that would prohibit the both of you from getting married and her father's preference of having both parents sayyids is unfortunately ignorant. There is no superiority between sayyids and non-sayyids in Islam. Nonetheless, it seems like you just need to get her on board in allowing you to come forward and propose. The problem seems to lie here, that she doesn't want you to even try asking for her hand. Do you think it would be a big problem if you went and proposed anyway? Reg
  9. I don't understand why everyone is attacking SeekingTruth153. Brother, I'm very sorry SC gave you a wrong impression of Shi'as. However, there must be another reason why you are leaning towards the Sunni sect. It is very illogical and irrational to judge a sect by an internet forum. I am sort of new to SC but it seems to be a pretty laid back online forum. Nothing really wrong with that. Judge a sect by its 'aqeeda, not by peoples' behaviors. I am Shia and have lived around Shias my whole life and have never ever heard anyone curse Allah (swt) nor Rasulullah (saw). I was completely shocked whe
  10. You should read Surat Al Ikhlas, Surat Al Falaq and Surat Al Nas each 3 times before going to sleep. Reciting those holy suwar should protect you from shaitan (la) entering your dreams inshaAllah. If you wake up feeling negative the rest of the day, it's a sign that the dream is from shaitan (la), as he enjoys our suffering in every way. I sense that you may still have some unresolved feelings/grudges with that person you fought with. As Yoda1 suggested, maybe have a talk with them to clear things out. Try to stay positive during the day, despite having dreamt that disturbing dream. Don't let
  11. Do not post it as a Facebook status :no: . Tell your parents, aunts/uncles, cousins and close friends to be on the lookout for you. You don't need to ask every 'alim you know, maybe just one or two that you trust have good characters. May Allah (swt) help you.
