  1. proof?? And besides, People are cursed in the Quran - how many verses have u seen that begin with- "lanatu-Allah on so and so and such a group of people".
  2. The Punishment for adultery is mentioned in the quran: "(As for) the fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them, (giving) a hundred stripes, and let not pity for them detain you in the matter of obedience to Allah, if you believe in Allah and the last day, and let a party of believers witness their chastisement. (24:2) The fornicator shall not marry any but a fornicatress or idolatress, and (as for) the fornicatress, none shall marry her but a fornicator or an idolater; and it is forbidden to the believers.(24:3) Also note that the punishment for zina cannot possibly be death, as it
  3. Punishment for adultery is not death. its lashes (unless he/she repents then all is forgiven). Also, i have heard that Backbiting is worse than adultery because in order to be forgiven for backbiting by God, you mast first be forgiven by the person you were gossiping about, whereas you can be forgiven for adultery without needing the forgiveness of others. im pretty certain It was quoted by Imam Ali (as), yet i do not remember the exact words/ phrases he used.
  4. Whats wrong with you, So only you sunni people are allowed to critique shia sources but when the opposite happens, we get dramas like this. If anything, there is so much hate from the sunni side, (all you have to do is look at a sunni forum) and it is such notions that hinder unity. I find it so offensive when you say: "I'm just glad these christians haven't found your books yet because only God know what they will say then. You are a small minority, why would they look at your sources?" and here you are, telling us to stop having unity seminars and conferences. I just get so much hate from
  5. 2. Look but we're not stupid- Do you seriously think that people will just blindly stop doing the things u listed (latim, attending majalis, etc.) The chain of events u listed is unlikely to occur if tatbir is banned- especially if it is done by religious leaders themselves. Anyway- it doesnt have to be formally 'banned' for people to stop doing it. 3.No, i asked you what vid you were reffering to because there were so many on this thread. Im not going to search through 10 pages for 1 vid. 4. Mourning= grief and crying , yes. But not the extremes to harming yourself to THAT extent. your body
  6. 1. No i did not know the word (im an arab)- thanks for expaining 2. The baath taking power was not because of people stopping Tatbir- my argument is that it is unrealistic for banning tatbir to have a direct impact . The baath occured due to various factors- it was a political system that had risen against Islam- and not because people stopped doing Tatbir. 3. I did not watch the vids (what ones are you referring to- this is a long thread), but im justing thinking for myself and it doesnt seem that stopping Tatbir will stop the message of Ahlu-albyt spreading-im just being realistic. 4. Hmmmmm
  7. 1. what's 'azadari' - 2. Still your argument doesn't make sense and is a little unrealistic. Come on- we're very conscious of what's going on around us, i'm sure that by not practicing tatbir, somthing as extreme as majalis not being held wont happen. 3. You said: "By keeping Tatbir, you know that there is a hidden agenda to forbid the commemoration of Ahl-el-Bayt -pbut-, if someone tries to forbid or disallow it." Lets be real man- this is so far fetched. By banning tatbir, no ones eliminating the commemoration of Ahl-el-Bayt (PBUT), there are other ways of commemorating and those ways are ab
  8. this sounds rediculous, 'first line of defence', what do you mean?? Since when was harming yourself defending anyone. I cant tell whether you're being literal or metaphorical. By either way, it doesnt make sense. Defence against what exactly? Please do explain what you mean. I dont see the point in it to be honest. If you love someone, you're meant to impliment their ways and teachings, not recreate the sufferings they experienced. In what way are you purifying your souls? Im a shia myself, and i find it so wrong that people do this. Dont mean to be offensive, but its quite disgusting actu
  9. “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde

  10. So what are the most highly regarded hadith books by shia muslims. So like Where sunnis regard Bukhari and sahih muslim highly, what about shias?
  11. well you see, i had (and still do have ) a packet of lindt chocolate in my cupboard- waiting to be eaten :P but then i heard that they contain alcohol, because they have liquid centres. Alcohol is not written on the ingredient list and when i emailed the company, i did not recieve a response.. I did a bit of research and found the following: so, is it halal or not?
  12. where can i watch the full lecture??
  13. i have this problem as well, and ive managed to come up with a few techniques to help overcome loss in concentration during prayer: 1. pray SLOW- say your prayers slowly and also do the actions at a slow pace, taking things one at a time really helps. praying too fast causes you to quickly lose focus in your words and your mind begins to wonder off. Sometimes, i take 1-2 second pauses between each rukin, just to keep track of what im up to. 2. do not repeat your prayers too often, as soon as you come to pray, ensure to remind yourself that you're praying this prayer once (and once only) and
  14. hello According to islamic principles, what is gossiping? is it talking negatively about someone in their absence? what if those negative traits are true? What if you're talking about a particular event and you talk of the bad things a person has done? is that gossiping too? How do you repent for it?? If someone is backbiting and you remain silent, have you sinned too? someone clarify this for me.. thanks :)
  15. you can try buying one over there..............
  16. correction, the present Quran is the book of Allah
  17. um i didnt know that Ali (as) had children named Umar, Abu bakr and uthman.. :mellow: Are you sure!!???
  18. wash it -- cold water/ice may reduce the bleeding do wudu then just cover it (band-aid, etc) and thats it, its ok if it continues to bleed i just found this: 285. If a person has a cut or wound on his face, or hands, and the blood from it does not stop, and if water is not harmful for him, he should, after washing the healthy parts of that limb in proper sequence, put the place of wound or cut in Kurr-water o r running water, and press it a little so that the blood may stop. Then he should pass his finger on the wound or cut, within the water, from above downwards, so that water may flow on
