And the consequences of this action (believing in the Wilaya of Allah Almighty, Muhammad the Messenger -pbuh&hf-, and Imam Ali -pbuh-) is: As you are not from those who believe in the wilayat of Imam Ali -pbuh-, then you are not from the triumphant (in this world and the after life)...

  2. Abo Bakr's son, I think I read that his name is Mohammed ibn Abo Bakr (ra) . Imam Ali (as) loved him and he kept him close. Then Imam Ali also appointed him as the governor of Egypt before he was killed by Muawiya and Amr ibn Aas. It is clear that Imam Ali loved him and Mohammed ibn Abo Bakr loved Imam Ali, but was he one of Imam Ali's Shias, like Abo Zar ibn Ghiffara and Ammar ibn Yassir. Mods please filter this post from any hate inciting speech.
  3. (salam) hello people, anyone know if an English translation to Nade Ali by Bassim Karbalai is available. Ive been looking round and cant find any... :(
  4. Sallam brothers. How much did the Imam eat, I heard that he ate just 2 mouthfuls and sat back. Did he train his body to live in little or did he face hunger like we do if we eat little? What if one of us tries this? would we face health concerns if we eat too little, I mean for people like me who get fat very easily from eating very little. Should we do as he did? what benefits are there? And how was it that when he ate little, he was still stronger than all other men but if we eat little, we feel weak. I want to start eating little, but I get very weak and lazy when I don't eat. the reason why I wanna start are 2, 1. weight loss 2. good for the world, the less we eat, the more food there is to share globally.

  7. Prophet Mohammad (pbuhahf) predictions in Sahih Sunni hadiths in multimedia. http://www.khanwadeabutalib.com/public/ilm/article/777/58#.U-AdTONdVA0
  8. I am proud to share the dowloadable PDF form of this great research. Read and spread. And don't forget brother Toyib in your duas. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2 'Ali: The Best of the Sahabah Explicit Testimonies of Sahih Sunni Ahadith Authored by Toyib Olawuyi Edition: 1 This book is an in-depth academic critique, and a thoroughly investigative refutation, of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah's Minhaj al-Sunnah on the specific question of Abu Bakr's alleged superiority over Amir al-Muminin 'Ali b. Abi Talib. The shaykh has adopted a two-pronged approach in his Minhaj. He presents arguments and proofs to support Abu Bakr's superiority and discredits all arguments and proofs in favour of 'Ali's superiority. Toyib Olawuyi has however placed all the primary submissions, evidences and denials of Ibn Taymiyyah under the microscope and punctured every single one of them severely using the Book of Allah, the sahih ahadith of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah, and their strictest rijal verification methods. Full transparency, accuracy and accountability are strictly observed throughout our book, and we hope it will ease the way for every soul seeking to find out the real truth. BUY FROM AMAZON
  9. (bismillah) Let me make it absolutely clear, that I want no emotional arguments as they will count for nothing, and no irrelevant arguments that will count for nothing. I merely want to discuss this piece of academic evidence and if anyone can refute it they would be more than welcome, but stay focused on this piece of evidence and nothing else. Now, I think everyone is clear on the fact that al Dhahabi is most definitely a highly regarded, qualified hadīth scholar, and he confirms something interesting that we also have recorded in our books. He writes, in A'lãm al Nubalã, by al Dhahabi, volume 5, page 101: Al Dhahabi says, in the Biograohy of Ulai ibn Rabãh: He is thiqa (reliable), he is Abu Mūsa al Lakhmī al Misrī. He heard narrations from Amr ibn al Ãs, Uqbah ibn Ãmir, and Abī Qatãda al Ansãrī, Abdullah ibn Umar and a group of other companions, and he was of the greatest scholars of the tābi'īn. Al Dhahabi then says "Abu Abdul Rahmãn al Muqrī said that whenever Banū Umayyah heard that a newborn child was born with the name of Ali, they killed him, and when Rabãh (Ulai's father) discovered this he changed his son's name (from Ali to Ulai). There's more, in the same book volume 10, page 400 Al Dhahabi says, in biography of Allamah al Hāfidh Sãdiq: He came to Baghdad, classified and was very good in biographies, battle recounts and lineages, and was honest in what he said, and used high (authentic) chains of narration. Allamah al Hafidh narrates from al Muthannã ibn Abdillãh al Ansãrī, "I was in Shãm and I never heard the names Ali or Hassan, but I heard Muawiyah, Yazeed and al Walid."
  10. "I leave behind for you to Caliphs (two successors), the book of Allah and my progeny. The book of Allah is a rope stretched between the heavens and then earth and my progeny is Ahlul Bayt. The two will not separate from each other until they reach me at the pool of paradise." Note that this isn't the same as the famous hadith where the Prophet (pbuh) refers to them as the thaqalayn, this is a different occasion. On this one he refers to them as the two Caliphs (khalifatain). Let us look at the opinions of the main Sunni hadith scholars: Albani- chain is sahih (authentic) Al Arna'oot- chain is hasan (trustworthy) Tabarani- chain is hasan (trustworthy) Suyuti- chain is sahih (authentic) Found in: Musnad Ahmed ibn Hanbal, Fada'il al Sahaba by Ahmed ibn Hanbal, Manba' al Fawa'id, al Kabir by al Tabarani, Majma' al Saghir by al Suyuti, Aqdain for fadha'il al sharafayn and more... My dear brothers from Ahlul Sunnah, could the Prophet (pbuh) get any clearer?
  11. “Those who believe and do righteous deeds are the best of the creatures. Their reward from their Lord shall be everlasting gardens, below which flow rivers, they will abide there forever. Well pleased is God with them and they are well pleased with Him” Quran 98:7 Tafseer Durre Manthur Jalaladin Suyuti, (849 – 911 AH) is one of the highest ranking Sunni scholars of all time. In his commentary of this verse, he records through 3 Isnaad (chains) of narrators that the Prophet (saww) told his companions that the verse referred to Ali and his Shia. Hadhrath Ali narrates in Tafsir Durre Mansur, Volume 6 page 379 (Cairo edition) “Have you not heard this verse: “Their reward from their Lord shall be everlasting gardens, below which flow rivers, they will abide there forever”? This verse refers to you and your Shi’a, I promise you that I will meet you at the Fountain of Kawthur”. The 3 Sahaba who narrated this Hadeeth are (1) Ali (as) himself (2) Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari (ra) (3) Abdullah ibne Abbas (ra). Be joyful O' Shia of Ali (as) , we will meet the Prophet (pbuh) on that day.
  12. The famous sermon of Imam Ali (as) , known as Shaqshaqiyya, has raised questions about the authenticity of Nahjul Balagha among the Ahlul Sunnah, but I would like to prove that it was recorded by many well know Sunni scholars in their books long before the compiler of Nahjul Balagha was born. The sermon was reported by ibn Abbas who was present, in the following books (sunni books only):, Majma' al amthaal by al Maydani v1 page 369, Ibn al Athir in al Nihayah v2 page 294, Lisaan al arab by ibn Mandhoor, al Qamus by al Fairuzabadi v3 page 251, and many more.. Here is what Imam Ali (as) said once he had the chance to speak the truth. His famous speech: Beware! By Allah! the son of Abu Quhafah (Abu Bakr) dressed himself with it (the caliphate) and he certainly knew that my position in relation to it was the same as the position of the axis in relation to the hand-mill. The flood water flows down from me and the bird cannot fly upto me. I put a curtain against the caliphate and kept myself detached from it. Then I began to think whether I should assault or endure calmly the blinding darkness of tribulations wherein the grown up are made feeble and the young grow old and the true believer acts under strain till he meets Allah (on his death). I found that endurance thereon was wiser. So I adopted patience although there was p.ricking in the eye and suffocation (of mortification) in the throat. I watched the plundering of my inheritance till the first one went his way but handed over the Caliphate to Ibn al-Khattab after himself. (Then he quoted al-A`sha’s verse): My days are now passed on the camel’s back (in difficulty) while there were days (of ease) when I enjoyed the company of Jabir’s brother Hayyan. It is strange that during his lifetime he wished to be released from the caliphate but he confirmed it for the other one after his death. No doubt these two shared its udders strictly among themselves. This one put the Caliphate in a tough enclosure where the utterance was haughty and the touch was rough. Mistakes were in plenty and so also the excuses therefore. One in contact with it was like the rider of an unruly camel. If he pulled up its rein the very nostril would be slit, but if he let it loose he would be thrown. Consequently, by Allah people got involved in recklessness, wickedness, unsteadiness and deviation. Nevertheless, I remained patient despite length of period and stiffness of trial, till when he went his way (of death) he put the matter (of Caliphate) in a group and regarded me to be one of them. But, Heavens! What had I to do with this “consultation”? Where was any doubt about me with regard to the first of them that I was now considered akin to these ones? But I remained low when they were low and flew high when they flew high. One of them turned against me because of his hatred and the other got inclined the other way due to his in-law relationship and this thing and that thing, till the third man of these people stood up with heaving breasts between his dung and fodder. With him his children of his grand-father, (Umayyah) also stood up swallowing up Allah’s wealth5 like a camel devouring the foliage of spring, till his rope broke down, his actions finished him and his gluttony brought him down prostrate. At that moment, nothing took me by surprise, but the crowd of people rushing to me. It advanced towards me from every side like the mane of the hyena so much so that Hasan and Husayn were getting crushed and both the ends of my shoulder garment were torn. They collected around me like a herd of sheep and goats. When I took up the reins of government one party broke away and another turned disobedient while the rest began acting wrongfully as if they had not heard the word of Allah saying: That abode in the hereafter, We assign it for those who intend not to exult themselves in the earth, nor (to make) mischief (therein); and the end is (best) for the pious ones. (Qur’an, 28:83). Yes, by Allah, they had heard it and understood it but the world appeared glittering in their eyes and its embellishments seduced them. Behold, by Him who split the grain (to grow) and created living beings, if people had not come to me and supporters had not exhausted the argument and if there had been no pledge of Allah with the learned to the effect that they should not acquiesce in the gluttony of the oppressor and the hunger of the oppressed I would have cast the rope of Caliphate on its own shoulders, and would have given the last one the same treatment as to the first one. Then you would have seen that in my view this world of yours is no better than the sneezing of a goat. (It is said that when Amir al-mu’minin reached here in his sermon a man of Iraq stood up and handed him over a writing. Amir al-mu’minin began looking at it, when Ibn `Abbas said, “O’ Amir al-mu’minin, I wish you resumed your Sermon from where you broke it.” Thereupon he replied, “O’ Ibn `Abbas it was like the foam of a Camel which gushed out but subsided.” Ibn `Abbas says that he never grieved over any utterance as he did over this one because Amir al-mu’minin could not finish it as he wished to.) The truth about what happened after the death of our Prophet (pbuh) is there brothers and sisters.
  13. According to the Ahlul Sunnah, these will all be in Janah: 1)Imam Ali (as) , 2)Abu Bakr, 3)Umar, 4)Uthman, 5)Talhah, 6) Zubair. I know there's more but I just want to focus on these. Ok, so... The second and third cause the death of the first's wife. Also, the fourth and fifth tried to kill the first. Oh, I almost forgot, the second, third and fourth on that list stole the Khilafah from the first... but, all of them will be together in Janah. Could anyone from Ahlul Sunnah explain this?! And if any Shi'a would like to add to this they would be very welcome. ws
  14. I was listening to one of the lectures of Ammar Nakshawani, I already knew that the Messenger of Allah had mentioned the 12 imams in hadiths of al Kaafi and so on, but he said the biggest proof is that we still have the notes of one of the students of Ja'far al Sadiq (as) , named Abu Sa'eed al Asfari which is with us until today, which was written in the time of our 6th Imam which mentions the names of these Imams from Imam Ali (as) to Imam al Mahdi (as). Could someone give me the details and where I can find the narration? Also, he mentions that the Zaydis in the time of Imam al Hadi (as) would say Imam al Hadi (as) is the 10th Imam of the rafidha (believe it or not that name has been around since then)- I think it was Al Qasim ibn Ibrahim that was the Zaydi Imam who would say that. This shows that these men were considered the Imams, it wasn't an innovation later on. Could someone tell me where I can find information about this? And he also speaks about a companion of Imam al Hadi (as) who was writing a book about Imam al Mehdi (as) before our Imam was born which would be another magnificent proof. Could someone also refer me to where Muahmmad Baqir al Sadr (ra) wrote about his logical explanation of the Imams. These seem like some fundamental points I do not know about and they would be essential to show someone outside the school of Ahlul Bayt to give them proof. These points are covered from 41 minutes 30 seconds onwards. The whole video is brilliant in showing our Imams were reffered to in Sahih Bukhari, Muslim and many others but 41:30 onwards is what I would like to look at in detail. Enlighten Me ws
  15. Salaam alaikum, I am a revert to islam. I have researched a lot about islam and have realized that shia islam is the true path. My question is how can I perform Mutah? Do I go to a mosque and ask someone to arrange one or what? I am not trolling and any help would be appreciated. I am asking because I have a very high libido and am afraid of commting zina. Please help. Jazak Allah khair my brothers and sisters.

  17. Hey, I know there are a lot of free Quran services out there, but I was wondering if anyone knows of one that would ship the English translation by Ali Quli Qara'i? I need this for a non-Muslim friend who is very interested in Islam and does not have access to internet. Thank you for any help.

  19. Someone recently mentioned how ahl sunnah wal jammah denied the caliphate of imam (ra). Of course this is not true, I thought about writing a long response detailing what ahl sunnah beliefs with regards to imam Ali (ra) and the rest of ahl bayt (as). But realized I would have to go into what we believed and did not believe. Debates etc etc. I just didn't want to go through all that, maybe another time and I've been pretty busy so instead I'm going to post some informative videos which details the ahl sunnah position on some important personalities in Islamic history. I'm starting off with sayyiduna Ali (ra). The lecture is not long and is very good. I believe those who take the time will benefit from it.

  21. First off I would like to say im starting this thread to show others who dont do it why the people who do matam choose to do it, and what they gain from it. I will post my feelings: When I do matam or even say Ya Ali (or any prophets/imams) for that matter, or the month of muharram especially, all the prophets and imams come to mind, my soul vibrates with the essence of their names, Imam Ali's (all imams) sacrifice for Allah, his power and will because of his love and obedience to Allah, his strength in the wars he fought with the prophet for the same of Allah and spreading his religion, his sacrifices he did and saw for the same of Allah, He knew his two sons will become martyred to keep this religion alive, he saw his wife and newborn get killed, his house arrest because of his views for Allah, his rights that got taken, he giving charity while in prayer and verse revealed, Hadith Ghadir, Hadith Kisa, Quran 33:33...all these lighten my soul and body with energy and will power and love for this deen, for striving at all times any time, this feeling cannot be measured! Its like my soul flares towards this sacred path that can never be reached but only sought to. My heart palpitates with sadness and strength, it makes me feel sorry for those who are sick, are being oppressed, those that are hungry, the orphans, if it wasnt for matam for my, and as some people who are against it call it, a "ritual", I honestly would have not been like this to an extent even more. Some might say they are already feel sorry for those types of people, but let me tell you its at another level, I feel happy whether something good or bad happens because I understand it. I sort of feel at a micro level from the true level of what the 14 infallibles felt everyday: Truly living for Allah....It makes me want to do what Hussain A.S did, or all the prophets and imams. I will leave it at this, Wa Salaam

  24. This is the place where The Battle of Khaybar was fought in the year 629 between Muslims and the Jews living in the oasis of Khaybar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNvOSFsJtkE As Imam Ali(a.s.) led the Islamic forces to the strongest fort of Khyber named QAMOOS and when they came near, the battle was started by the Jews. One of their strongest man, Haris, attacked and martyred two Muslims after which Imam Ali(a.s.) took on Haris and killed him instantly. He was followed by the strongest man among the Jews - Marhab. Marhab faced the same fate. His body was equally divided into two parts by the zulfiqar of Imam Ali(a.s.). After this, general battle started. The Muslim forces fought with a lot of courage under the leadership of Imam Ali(a.s.). Upon realizing that they were losing the battle, the Jews started running towards the fort and closed the huge iron gate of the fort from inside. This was the gate which used to be opened and closed by 40 strong men. Imam Ali(a.s.) alone lifted and broke the gate in one strong jolt. He then used the same gate to make a bridge on a trench so that the Islamic forces could enter the fort and conquer it. The remaining frightful Jews cried of mercy and Imam Ali(a.s.) ordered to stop the battle and declare peace for them who had surrendered. One after the other, the muslim fighters under the leadership of Imam Ali(a.s.) conquered various forts of this stronghold and completed the grand victory of Islamic forces over the Jews.
