  1. That is none of your business. If you have nothing constructive to contribute toward the thread then simply don't engage in this discussion.
  2. This is nothing but a mere assumption rather a judgmental assumption which has been criticized by Imams (as). There is also a Hindu doctor who has been treating patients free of cost since decades but again you will blame her for some ulterior motives.
  3. No this is not flawed because we have plethora of such examples from our daily life for instance Sir Ganga Ram who was a Hindu Mushrik ; he built colleges , schools and hospitals. Thousands of Muslims are treated in his hospital gratis even to this day but guess what? Sir Ganga Ram will be eternally damned for being a Mushrik while a Monotheist who blows himself up in public has a better chance of salvation since he is not a mushriq.
  4. Every vile deed is a crime against your soul. Just like a physical action has its reward in naturalistic realm likewise an action has its reward in metaphysical realm. Every vile deed earns us a Divine Wrath upon our souls , concomitantly our souls are polluted. So, shirk is no exception. Hence , this argument is also invalid.
  5. Every sin is ultimately against Allah. This very dichotomy of sinning against Allah and sinning against His creation is sham. When we sin against Allah's creations then we are violating His commandments. So , eventually it is a sin against Allah too . Hence , the argument is invalid.
  6. Salam to all honorable members. I have asked this question on sundry forums but I have never received any satisfactory response or you can say an eloquent response. The question is , what is the wisdom or philosophy behind shirk being the worst crime imaginable? I mean there are several other heinous crimes which appear far more grotesque than shirk but still according to Islam shirk is the worst crime in the eyes of Allah. Why it is that so? Let us consider a hypothetical scenario, there is a person who believes in an anthropomorphic deity but at the same time he is a great philanthropist. No
  7. I am interested in knowing that do our imams have knowledge in sequence or did they know everything since the beginning of their creation? Secondly how this knowledge is transferred from one imam to another? is imamate acquired or is it intrinsic ? For example we see that Ibrahim (as) was later transformed into an Imam and he was not imam since his birth? is it the same in Ahlul bait case? or they are imams by birth? Why this difference? If any brother and sister has Ahadith on these points then kindly post it , I will be very thankful. @Salsabeel @Qa'im @Ibn al-Hussain @Sumerian
  8. Exorcist and Sinister (2012)
  9. @Salsabeel Two questions 1- How do you understand Quran 42:52? 2- Why Prophet (saw) commenced his prophetic mission at the age of 40 years if prophets are prophet by birth? what is the reason of this procrastination? While Jesus (as) commenced his journey at a very early age. Why this contrast between the two ?
  10. Well said brother. but what is the evidence that Prophet are born with this disposition ? what evidence do we have that they are born with this disposition? Can we give an example of Prophet Isa (as) in this context ?
  11. It is a Shia belief in contrast to Sunni belief that a prophet is prophet by birth but I find this hard to believe . Let us see following verse : And that We have inspired you [Muhammad] with a Spirit (rūḥ) from Our Command. You did not know what was the Book (kitāb) and what was the Faith. But We have made it a Light (nūr) by which We guide those of our Servants as We will. And verily, you guide to a Straight Path. – Holy Qur’ān 42:52 And even our tafsir say the same Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Imran Bin Musa, from Musa Bin Ja’far, from Ali Bin Asbat, from Muhammad Bin Al F
  12. This makes pretty much sense . I was thinking the same . That I know brother but I was looking for a way to reconcile the two apparently contradicting verses. Brother @SoRoUsH is making very much sense here , would you like to add something to his input ?
  13. Venerable brothers and Sisters , I came across some Ahadith yesterday. According to shia Hadith , Holy Spirit and Gabreal are distinct. Holy Spirit is a creature that is higher or more powerful than Gabreal and all the prophets or messengers have access to it. Now since our Ahadith make a distinction between the two then this gives rise to an apparent contradiction in Qur'an . Quran in one verse says that it is Gabreal who brought down Qur'an upon Prophet (saw) while in other verse it says it is Holy Spirit that brings down Quran upon Prophet (saw). Sunnis say Holy Spirit and Gabreal are same
  14. Is the following Hadith Sahih in terms of Transmission ? Then Jibra'eel met the Messenger of Allah, and he stoped himand lifted his (pbuh) shirt. The Prophet (pbuh) said to him (Jibra'eel), 'What are you intending to do, O my brother Jibra'eel?' Jibra'eel said: 'There is no problem upon you, and he took his win and split the chest of the Prophet, and he (Jibra'eel) entered his wing in his (pbuh) chest, and penetrating his (pbuh) heart, split it and turned it (?) and it revealed a black spot, so he (Jibra'eel) took it and washed it, and Mika'eel was pouring water on it, then a call from a ca
  15. One of my christian friend has been researching on shia Islam. At the moment , he is a bit disappointed by the stance of shia Islam on slavery. He says how having sex with a married woman captured in a war is not injustice ? How do you justify this to someone who doesn't believe Mohammad (saw) was a prophet? Here is a quotation from Sheikh al-Tusi in his book of jurisprudence *al-Nihayah*. " يستباح وطؤ الاماء بثلاثة أشياء: أحدها العقد عليهن بإذن أهلهن، وقد قدمنا ذكر ذلك. والثاني بتحليل مالكهن الرجل من وطيهن وإباحته له، وإن لم يكن هناك عقد. والثالث بأن يملكهن فيستبيح وطأهن بملك الا
  16. many thanks akhi . what a beautiful hadith it is. Masha Allah . God bless you
  17. According to our belief Prophet Mohammad (saw) was both Prophet and an Imam. Nevertheless , I do need a Hadith that explicitly calls him an Imam . I had read such Ahadith in the past but I don't have them with me now . Therefore , if any brother or sister has the hadith on this matter then kindly post it here , I need it as I am in a discussion with a brother who says that there are no such Ahadith. Thanking you in Advance . @Qa'im , @Islamic Salvation, @Cake
  18. It doesn't answer much brother. Especially the bolded part
  19. A shia brother has been befuddled by some Christian websites. He has now begun to doubt the infallibility of Prophet Mohammad (saw). He claims that Quran presents quite an opposite image in contrast to the stance of Tashayyu according to which Prophet is protected from every sin and mistakes. There are numerous verses in Qur'an which show that Prophet can doubt , commit mistakes and can commit sins. For example Quran 9:43 , 17:74 , 80:1-3. Furthermore the brother claims that Shias say that in these verses Allah is not addressing Prophet rather Allah is addressing other group of people throug
  20. Aima (as) used to answer their companions in accordance with their sapiential level. This Hadith is idoneous for laity. There are reports from Aima(As) where they have explained this issue by calling Qur'an a Mohdath. Therefore , the position of shia school is that it is a Mohdath. Qur'an itself encourages its readers to contemplate over it on sundry places. Nevertheless , I believe this issue was important and worthy of academic discussion. This is starkly germane to " Shirk " ; a term that is often blurted out by sunnis. Sunni standard stance of Quran being uncreated and eternal is shirk i
  21. Majority doesn't believe it is a Mohdath , right ?
  22. I came across a debate between a shia brother and a sunni debater on Youtube. The topic was whether according to Sunnis Quran is uncreated and eternal or is it created. This is the link to the debate. Anyhow , what was fascinating is that the sunni debater completely denied the fact that majority of sunni scholars believed in the uncreatedness of Quran. I was further flabbergasted to see that the Sunni debater claimed that the standard position of tasanun in this case is that " Quran is a Mohdath". To prove his case he relied on a Shia Hadith. Now this is beyond my comprehension that how can a
  23. Lemme tell you something very interesting brother. Plethora of their scholars have destroyed the Ahadith which were against Sahabas i.e. which could expose them. That is why, sunni books have undergone massive fabrication. Read this whole series brother , it is a very interesting research done by a brother . So yes , you are right they can go to any level in defending the so called sahabas , just following the sunnah of their predecessors . https://zolfiqar.wordpress.com/2017/12/12/hiding-the-truth-in-bakrism-part-1/ https://zolfiqar.wordpress.com/2017/12/21/hiding-the-truth-
