  1. Greetings! All of a sudden I got to know a riwayat reguarding today's syrian crisis by Imam Haider A.S. This riwayat expells the future events from syrian crisis to appearence of Sufyani step by step. We should be proud of being a Shia that are Imams prepare us for the upcoming circumstances. Note: My english is not godd and so the translation of the riwayat could not be possible. I would list that events step by step in order to understand the riwayat. ~~~Imam Ali A.S~~~ Event#1: Extreme Bombardment in Shaam (Syria) in which approx. 1lac people will be killed, but god will bless the Momins and they will get a clean victory against the Kuffars. Event#2: Then We shall wait and then see Ashshebi Horse riders and holders of Yellow flags from magrib (Iraq) entering Syria. Event#3: Then we should wait and see the ground of the village (HARASTA or KHARSHA) will be grounded. Event#4: And when this happens the emergence of Sufyani from the dry land of Palestine Source: Qayamat-e-Sughra
  2. I wanted to start a discussion regarding the mother of the believers Aisha. Is she still the mother of the believers after reading this?? According to the Shiaa the prophet (saww) left the authority to divorce his wives to Imaam Alee (as) and Imaam Alee (as) did divorce Aisha (la) The narrations that I will be posting are Saheeh (Authentic) and here is what Allama Majlisi (RA) says about them: Bihar al-Anwar, by Allama Majlisi, vol. 22, p. 495 "This was the end of what we have taken out from the book Al-Turaf, which it has taken out from the book Al-Wasiya, by 'Isa bin al-Mustafadh, and the book Khasa'es al-A'imma, by Sayed al-Razi (ra), and most of it is narrated in the book Al-Sirat al-Mustaqeem, by Sheikh Zaynul-Deen al-Bayyadhi. And 'Isa and his book are mentioned in the books of Rijal, and I have distinguished chains of narrators from them. And after the esteem of Al-Kulayni (ra) and the two Sayed's reliance on it, there is no meaning in declaring any of them as weak, in addition to that the pronounciation of the narrations and their meanings bear witness to their authenticity." So now lets begin: First narration: The prophet (saww) giving Imaam Alee (as) the authority to divorce his wives: Al-Ghayba, by Al-Tusi, p. 150 "O Ali, you are my successor upon my family, the living ones as well as the dead ones, and upon my women. So the one of them whom you bind (bind to the Prophet's marriage to them) shall meet me tomorrow (on the Day of Judgment); and the one of them whom you divorce (divorce from the Prophet's marriage to them), I am innocent from her. She will not see me, neither will I see her on the Day of Resurrection. And you are my successor upon my nation after me." Second narration: Imaam Alee's (as) promise to divorce Aisha: Sharh' al-Akhbar, by Abu-Hanifa al-Nu'man al-Maghribi, vol. 1, p. 211. Ali sent (someone of his servants) to Aisha, after the end of the cause of Jamal, when she was in Basra, to say: "Return to your house", and she denied. Then he sent to her a second time, and she denied. Then he sent to her a third time: "You shall return, otherwise I shall say a word in which Allah and His Messenger shall dissociate themselves from you!" Then she said: "Get me away! Get me away!" Then a woman, who was with her, said to her: "O mother of the believers, what did scare you with Ali's commitment over you?" She said: "The Prophet made him his successor upon his family and left the divorcement of his women in his hand." Third Narration: Imaam Alee divorcing Aisha: Al-Ihjtijaj, by Al-Tabarsi, vol. 1, p. 24 "Imam al-Baqir (as) said: When the Day of Jamal took place and Aisha's howdah had been hit by arrows, the Commander of the Faithful (as) said: "By Allah, I do not see anything else than divorcing her! So I call, to Allah, after a man who heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say: 'O Ali, the issue of my women is in your hand after me' when he stood and bore witness over this!" He (Al-Baqir) said: Then 13 men stood up, among them were two Badri's, and they bore witness to that they heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say to Ali bin Abi-Talib (as): "O Ali, the issue of my women is in your hand after me!" He (Al-Baqir) said: Then Aisha cried until they heard hear cry. Then Ali (as) said: "The Messenger of Allah (saw) said to me: 'Allah shall support you, O Ali, on the Day of Jamal with 5000 angels."
  3. 1- OBEYING THE WALI (AS MENTIONED IN QURAN): A. The believers should not take Jews and Christians as Auliya: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ أَوْلِيَاءَ ۘ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as Auliya (allies) . They are [in fact] Auliya (allies) of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people. (5:51) It is mentioned here that AULIYA is plural form and its singular form is WALI. B. The believers should not take The people of Book and Disbelievers as Auliya: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا دِينَكُمْ هُزُوًا وَلَعِبًا مِّنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ وَالْكُفَّارَ أَوْلِيَاءَ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ O you who have believed, take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who were given the Scripture before you nor the disbelievers as Auliya (allies). And fear Allah , if you should [truly] be believers. (5:57) C. The believers should not take Disbelievers as Auliya instead of believers: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۚ أَتُرِيدُونَ أَن تَجْعَلُوا لِلَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ سُلْطَانًا مُّبِينًا O you who have believed, do not take the disbelievers as Auliya (allies) instead of the believers. Do you wish to give Allah against yourselves a clear case? (4:144) D. IF you take Disbelievers as Auliya instead of believers, is there honor in it: الَّذِينَ يَتَّخِذُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۚ أَيَبْتَغُونَ عِندَهُمُ الْعِزَّةَ فَإِنَّ الْعِزَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعًا Those who take disbelievers as Auliya (allies) instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely. (4:139) E. Allah declares unbelievers as Auliya of Satan:: إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ لِلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ Indeed, We have made the devils ٓAuliya (allies) to those who do not believe. (7:27) F. Allah declares unbelievers as Auliya of Satan and they are not guided ones: فَرِيقًا هَدَىٰ وَفَرِيقًا حَقَّ عَلَيْهِمُ الضَّلَالَةُ ۗ إِنَّهُمُ اتَّخَذُوا الشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَيَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّهُم مُّهْتَدُونَ A group [of you] He guided, and a group deserved [to be in] error. Indeed, they had taken the devils as Auliya (allies) instead of Allah while they thought that they were guided. (7:30) G. Those who take Auliya other than Allah their example is of weakest like spider web: مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ كَمَثَلِ الْعَنكَبُوتِ اتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتًا ۖ وَإِنَّ أَوْهَنَ الْبُيُوتِ لَبَيْتُ الْعَنكَبُوتِ ۖ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ The example of those who take Auliya (allies) other than Allah is like that of the spider who takes a home. And indeed, the weakest of homes is the home of the spider, if they only knew (29:41 ) H. Now the most important point is Who are declared Wali (Master) by Allah? إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ Your Wali (ally) is none but Allah and [therefore] His Messenger and those who have believed, who establish prayer and give zakah, while they bow [in worship] (5:55) وَمَن يَتَوَلَّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ اللَّهِ هُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ And whoever is an ally of Allah and His Messenger and those who have believed - indeed, the party of Allah - they will be the predominant (5:56) Now we need to look here who are declared here as Wali after Allah and the Prophet? It is unanimous that the verse descended about Imam Ali (AS) when he gave away in charity his ring while he was in a state of kneeling in his prayer. This is also authenticated successively according to the 12 Imams. Here are some of the Shi'ite references - Bihar al-Anwar, by Allama Majlisi - Tafseer al-Mizan, by Allama Tabatabai - Tafseer al-Kashaf, by Allama Muhammad Jawad Mughniyah - al-Ghadir, by Allama Abdul Husain Ahmad al-Amini - Asbat al-Hudate, by Allama Muhammad Ibn Hasan Amuli But for the sake of the readers I produce some Sunni references, and traditions in this respect through other sources. Many Sunni commentators of the Quran confirm the fact that the above verse descended on the honor of Imam Ali (as) and many Sunni scholars have also mentioned the unanimity or consensus of opinion in their books. Here are some references in this regard: (1) Tafsir al-Kabir, by Ahmad Ibn Muhammad al-Tha'labi, under Verse 5:55 (2) Tafsir al-Kabir, by Ibn Jarir al-Tabari, v6, pp 186,288-289 (3) Tafsir Jamiul Hukam al-Quran, by Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Qurtubi, v6, p219 (4) Tafsir al-Khazin, v2, p68 (5) Tafsir al-Durr al-Manthoor, by al-Suyuti, v2, pp 293-294 (6) Tafsir al-Kashshaf, by al-Zamakhshari, Egypt 1373, v1, pp 505,649 (7) Asbab al-Nuzool, by Jalaluddin al-Suyuti, Egypt 1382, v1, p73 on the authority of Ibn Abbas (8) Asbab al-Nuzool, by al-Wahidi, on the authority of Ibn Abbas (9) Sharh al-Tjrid, by Allama Qushji (10) Ahkam al-Quran, al-Jassas, v2, pp 542-543 (11) Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v5, p38 (12) Kanzul Ummal, by al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, v6, p391, Tradition #5991 (13) al-Awsat, by Tabarani, narrated from Ammar Yasir (14) Ibn Mardawayh, on the authority of Ibn Abbas I confine myself to a tradition occurring in the commentary of the Quran by Abi Is'haq Ahmad Ibn Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Nisaboori al-Tha'labi. A few comments on the respected personality: He died in 337 AH and Ibn Khallikan gives an account of his death saying: "He was unique as a commentator of the Quran and his Tafsir al-Kabir is superior to all other interpretations." When he reached this verse he recorded this in his Tafsir al-Kabir on the authority of Abu Dhar al-Ghifari, who said: Both of my ears may turn deaf and both of my eyes may become blind if I speak a lie. I heard the Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him and his posterity, saying, "Ali is the guide of the righteous and the slayer of the infidels. he who has helped him is victorious and he who has abandoned him is forsaken." One day I said my prayers in the company of the Prophet. A beggar came to the mosque and begged for alms, but nobody gave him anything. Ali was in a state of kneeling in the prayer. He pointed out his ring to the beggar, who approached him and removed the ring from his finger. Thereupon the Prophet, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him and his posterity, implored Allah the Mighty and Glorious, saying: "O Allah! My brother Moses begged you saying, 'My Lord, delight my heart and make my task easy and undo the knot in my tongue so that they may understand me, and appoint from my kinsmen, Haroon, my brother, as my vizier, and strenghthen my back with him and make him participate in my mission so that we may glorify You and remember You more frequently. Certainly You see us.' And You inspired him: 'O Musa! All your requests have been granted.' O Allah! I am your slave and your prophet. Delight my heart and make my task easy and appoint from among my kinsmen Ali as my vizier and strengthen my back with him." Abu Dhar, then, proceeded By Allah, the Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him and his posterity had not yet finished his supplication when the trustworthy Gabriel descended to him with this Verse "Certainly Allah is Your Master, and His Prophet and those who believe who establish prayer and give charity while they bow. And whoever takes Allah and His Messenger and those who believe as a guardian, so surely the party of Allah will be victorious." Sunni reference: Tafsir al-Kabir, by al-Tha'labi under the commentary of verses 5:55-56 of Quran. Thus it confirms that Allah, the prophet Muhammad saw and his vizier (successor) Ali Ibne Abi Talib are Wali ( Master) of the believers. I- Quran mentions that obeying Wali (Master) is obligatory: قُلْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْكَافِرِينَ Say, "Obey Allah and the Messenger." But if they turn away - then indeed, Allah does not like the disbelievers. (3;32) وَأَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ And obey Allah and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy. . (3:132) يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَلَا تُبْطِلُوا أَعْمَالَكُمْ O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and do not invalidate your deeds. . (47:33) This confirms since Allah and Muhammad are Wali and obeying them is obligatory. Similarly obeying the other Wali ie Ali ibne Abi Talib is obligatory. J- Quran mentions to obey the Allah, Muhammad saw and Ali (and Imams after him) in the following verse: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ ۖ O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you (by Allah). (4:59) On the commentary of the verse 4:59 of Quran in which Allah orders us to obey Ulul-Amr, al-Khazzaz in his book, Kifayatul Athar, gives a tradition on the authority of the well-known companion of the Prophet (PBUH&HF), Jabir Ibn Abdillah al-Ansari (ra): When the verse (4:59) was revealed, Jabir asked the Prophet (PBUH&HF): "We know Allah and the Prophet, but who are those vested with authority whose obedience has been conjoined to that of Allah and yourself?" The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "They are my Caliphs and the Imams of Muslims after me. The first of them is Ali; then al-Hasan; then al-Husain; then Ali son of al-Husain; then Muhammad son of Ali who has been mentioned 'al- Baqir' in the Torah (the old testament). O Jabir! You will meet him. When you see him, convey my greetings to him. He will be succeeded by his son, Ja'far al-Sadiq (the Truthful); then Musa son of Ja'far; then Ali son of Musa; then Muhammad son of Ali; then Ali son of Muhammad; then al-Hasan son of Ali. He will be followed by his son whose name and nick name will be the same as mine. He will be Proof of Allah (Hujjatullah) on the earth, and the one spared by Allah (Baqiyyatullah) to maintain the cause of faith among mankind. He shall conquer the whole world from the east to the west. So long will he remain hidden from the eyes of his followers and friends that the belief in his leadership will remain only in those hearts which have been tested by Allah for faith." Jabir said: "O Messenger of Allah! Will his followers benefit from his seclusion?" The Prophet said: "Yes! by Him who sent me with prophethood! They will be guided by his light, and benefit from his leadership during his seclusion, just as people benefit from the sun even though it is hidden in the clouds. O Jabir! This is from the hidden secrets of Allah and the treasured knowledge of Allah. So guard it except from the people who deserve to know." (Kifayatul Athar, by al-Khazzaz, p53). Now that we know who "those vested with authority" are, it is evident that the question of obeying tyrant and unjust rulers does not rise at all. Muslims are not required by the above verse to obey rulers who may be unjust, tyrannical, ignorant, selfish and sunk in debauchery. They are, in fact, ordered to obey the specified Twelve Imams, all of whom were sinless and free from evil thoughts and deeds. Obeying them has no risks whatsoever. Nay, it protects from all risks; because they will never give an order against the order of Allah and will treat all human beings with love, justice, and equity. K- Quran mentions that Allah will judge who takes Wali other than Allah, Messenger and Momineen (Ali and Imams after him): أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تُتْرَكُوا وَلَمَّا يَعْلَمِ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا مِنكُمْ وَلَمْ يَتَّخِذُوا مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَلَا رَسُولِهِ وَلَا الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلِيجَةً ۚ وَاللَّهُ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ Do you think that you will be left [as you are] while Allah has not yet made evident those among you who strive [for His cause] and do not take other than Allah, His Messenger and the believers as Wali (guardian)? And Allah is Acquainted with what you do. (9:16) Conclusion: Thus it is evident that Allah sees every one whether he takes Allah, Muhammad saww and Ali as his Wali or not. Only the believers take them as Wali, they are party of Allah and they will be prosperous.

  7. Salam Alaykum brothers and sisters, my name is Ali, and I've recently been reflecting a lot on my name. Why is it that in english the name علي is spelled with an A, when it should be spelled in an E, since the name علي can be traced back to the Eli that is in the book of Samuel. The name that is in that book has the same exact same meaning as the Arabic name علي. So I think Ali (in regards to the Arabic meaning) should instead be spelled as Eli in english. What do you think? Here's some links that helped me analyze this issue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eli_(Bible) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_(name)
  8. anyone knows, what is the kalma of hazrat ali shere khuda? plzzzzzzzzzzz.
  9. (salam) How are you? This is incident which has been spreading in Facebook. This is unfortunately written it Urdu. So it will be hard for non-Urdu to understand this. I try to tell this incident in English. Actually it is an incident about Langar (food served to poor people) and everybody was getting food, but only one person asked for two people food, then langar distributor asked why you're asking for two people food. The person replied, " This is for the person who is sitting there, who is very poor and eating food with water. and then the distributor replied, "the langarpeople eating here it is due to this person (pointing to the poor person). And this is our Caliph Abu Bakar. I heard this was not Abu Bakr.. but Maula Ali (as). so I am asking Sunni and Shia brothers, share Hadith about this incident. so it is then confirmed. To Sunni: If It is Abu Bakr, then please provide Hadith with reference. To Shia: If it is Maula Ali (as) then please provide Hadith with reference. That would be enough for me. :) Thanks you so much, (wasalam)
  10. Salaam Alaikum Can anyone who has hadiths on the actual burning of the door post them on this thread please? Not one's from Tabari- preferably ones that actually state Umar Ibn Al Khattab going into the house and then the rest of the incident. many thanks in advance :)

  12. Respecting Religions When you read about the history of Muslims, especially in the earliest periods of the Islamic history, you may get surprised by the level of charity and tolerance which Muslims had toward people who believed in other religions. They lived together as one community without reinforcing the differences of religions, their various relations, and manners of dealing everybody as a mankind. It follows that one of the most important aspects of the Islamic religion is respecting the codes of laws of other religions and denominations. There have been some accusations against Islam. There are many accusations raised against Islam as a religion that restricts the scope of other religions and its treating them with utter injustice, together with denigrating them. The coexistence of the Great Prophet at Medina with followers of other religions, e.g., Judaism and Christianity, has since proven to be the best proof of his gesture of respecting the laws of other faiths. From this framework of religious tolerance, it follows that Islam rejects persecution of people on the ground of their religion or belief systems. Rather, Islam recommends and seeking for the ideal in ethics and having good deal with others. This is all to the effect of eliminating socio-morally inappropriate behaviour in Islam. In this regard, it is noteworthy that the Holy Quran encourages Muslims to having philanthropic attitudes toward non-Muslims who have not shown any hostility against Islam. Allah the Almighty says marks in the Holy Quran as follows: "Allah does not forbid you to deal kindly and justly with those who have not fought against you about the religion or expelled you from your homes. God does not love the unjust people". (Sura al-Mumtahina, [60]: 8]. In consequence, it is an express right of all Muslims and non-Muslims who live under the banner of Islam to enjoy peace, justice, and benefit from the nation's social solidarity. There is a real anecdote from the reign of the first Infallible Imam`Ali. In his time, a blind Christian old man was begging. At the sight of this, Imam `Ali got angry, and asked of his companions thus: "What is this?" He never asked about the identity of the blind man. This is because such a situation in its entirety was unacceptable and unsatisfactory in his state, irrespective of the target person's religion and belief. At the same time, Imam `Ali ordered his companions to provide him with monthly allowance. Islam respects not only the living people of other faiths but also their dead people. The Prophet Muhammad himself respected the dead bodies of the followers of other religions, too. In this way, when there was a funeral session of a non-Muslim person, and the crowd were passing by the place where prophet Muhammad was staying, he used to stand up as a sign of showing his respect for the dead person. Once one of his companions mentioned to him such a case and remarked thus: "O Messenger of God! It's the funeral of a Jew!" The Prophet then said: "If you see a funeral, you should stand up because it is a soul, after all.” When you read about the history of Muslims, especially in the earliest periods of the Islamic history, you may get surprised by the level of charity and tolerance which Muslims had toward people who believed in other religions.

  13. Salaams, I sunni brother asked me, if Ali (a.s) did not like AbuBakr then why did he pledge allegiance to him. I was wondering if you could give me sunni proof that he didn't. If he did then what were the reasons behind it. With sunni reference please... Thanks Shukran
  14. Salaam Alaykum Bismillah. Now days it's quite normal for people to ask question regarding the existence of God. I wanted to ask, for example, can you ever base a truth on half of knowledge, the example is, Charles Darwin was never quite sure about his theory of evolution and some perhaps many have pointed his mistakes, if he was never sure, how can he spread a knowledge in which himself has a contradiction? If you know that your brother was hungry, he ate some food, and you started telling people he ate 12 plates,but in which reality he at 2, so how may you spread a wrong 'information' and people believe you, why do people want not to believe in God, what makes them arrogant, I believe if there is a God which he must be (exist) he must be a very justful God ,i.e Adalah (see...Usul-e-Din) but yet some people are blacks, some are different color, why is it so? they never knew they will be born in such way, (A poem I love to reference is [Life bought I came, death took me I go]) poverty,richness,knowledge,etc...I have read the hadith of Imam Ali (a.s) about "The one who has higher taqwa among you, is most beloved to Allah, than let him be of any sect,cast etc..." But the spiritual world is influence by the physical, if your born black, and people hate you, ultimately (it's a human physiological development) you will think Allah hates you,isn't so? Which I know he doesn't but, how does one not let physical influence spiritual, Please guide my ignorance and take a lesson from my knowledge.

  16. salam everyone Today at school a friend asked me if i was shi3i , i replied yes ofcourse , everything was fine until it got to the latom part. She wanted to know more about the shi3a and all she knew was that shi3a beat themselves... I explained that we observe Ashura as the day of martyrdom of Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala. Shia Muslims therefore consider this a day of sorrow and grief. The problem was that i was extremely upset relising what people really thought about us . :'( what could i have said?
  17. Salaam alaikum Can anyone help me understand what Imam Ali (as) did in relation to uthmans killers? Did he punish them, or did he take no action? If he took no action, why did he take no action? Thanks in advance
  18. I noticed that there are not many threads for remembering the great sacrifice of Imam Ali (as) this year.....now i really can say SC people are fools to just let it slip this year.....Hayhaat, Hayhaat, what a pity, what a pity. Everyone should share how Imam Ali (as) 's martyrdom effects them.... And maybe share something you learned about him you did not know before..... Imam Ali (as) 's effects us all, in such a way that it cannot be described....it was shocking and also one of the worst things and pitiful things to happen to this Ummah....it amazes me in a way, it makes me think. It hits me, it annoys me, but it also teaches me and calms me that there will be no more Dhulm....at least we could say no more Dhulm until Imam Hasan (as)'s Shahada. Something new I heard from the Minbar this year is that the reason Imam Ali (as) spent the night at his daughter Umm Kulthoom (as) house was because she had no children, and nobody would remember and do Dhikr of her after her.....so he said whenever the Masa'ib of Imam Ali (as) are read, Umm Kulthoom will be remembered by hundreds of Shi'a....which will make up for no children for Dhikr. I also heard this the first time, that when Imam Ali (as) was being taken back to the home after the stroke, he said to Imam Hasan (as) to,put him on the floor and first clear people out of the way and tell them to go home so they do not hear Sayyeda Zaynab (as) crying. There is one more thing but the Shaykh did not say it completely, Inshallah I will ask him and post it.....I did not know this and it blew me away, so amazing.

  20. Salam , Probably it is not recommended to share dreams but I really want help since It is very much needed to understand a very strange Dream that I had last night. OK....It was Laylatul Juma...I had prayed the Prayer of Imam Ali as ......and before this I had done extreme amounts of sins both major and minor. NOW THE DREAM... I walked into a door.....a place I guess ...(note: It was feeling as If I was observing the whole dream and was a part of the dream as well). I was told that Imam Ali as is on a room. I was very much shy and scared and shameful as well to show him my face.To be honest this feeling was there in my body as well.Ok....So I went to this room and say him sleeping.....I remember exactly I even saw his yawn and another personality was right beside him as well probably one of his very dear companion as it felt at that time.I came back again thought whether it is appropriate to meet him or not. I wanted to meet him because I had a persons head in my hand , the same person who beheaded me once but due to the Imam as healing my head came back upon my neck. Finally I went and he greeted ( gets a bit vague here) then I gave him the head...I can recall that he laughed a very pleasant and modest smile....He thn perhaps told me something which I can recall.....BUT I DO REMEMBER THIS THAT HE TOOK A PAPER( DEERS SKIN) AND WROTE A VERSE FROM THE QURAN on it..and told me to go...(dont know which verse it was ) howvever do know that that it was about 5 or 6 words. I took it with me and kissed it while crying and I do believe that he gave the verse as part of a an advice......THEN I LEFT........ ANYONE WILLING TO INTERPRET OR GIVING THEIR THOUGHTS PLEASE DO SO,,,,,,,,,,,,
  21. Al Salaamu 3alaykum, I RARELY have dreams...like once every 4 months or more! Its not that I don't have them, everyone has dreams(around 2-4 every night). But I just don't remember them... But, with God's will, I remembered this one, and I just had to share it. Here goes: It starts in Iran(I live in Lebanon) and I go to Imam Ali Ridha's Shrine. It was much different than the pictures, there weren't as many people as I expected, and men and women were mixed(don't ask). Also, when I entered the main room(where Imam Ali Ridha is buried), there was just a wall with a black covering on it. I blink and suddenly I am by the wall. I get close to it and start kissing it and crying(I have never cried in any majlis...EVER! I just don't know why). But suddenly, I get thrown by an invisible power across the whole room and the dream finishes. I would appreciate tafseerat of this dream warmly... Thank you!
  22. what do you guys say if someone says O Allah help me! and when someone else says O Ali help me! or when Christians say O Jesus help me! What do you think of each of these statements?
  23. Salaams, I have to give a 30 minute speech on the topic - Al Mumin mir'aat ul Mumin - A believer is a mirror of his brother. I brainstormed on certain things such as - To discuss on the origin of mirrors and their general day to day use in philosophical light. A man is a mirror of his own soul as his character is reflective of his belief Imam Sadiq's saying - Be unto us silent missionaries A brother in Iman should share his brother's feelings be they in sorrow or happiness so that he becomes like a mirror for him Any more suggestions of What's and How's regarding this speech? This is the first time I am giving such kind of a speech and I would love it to be understandable to the public. Shukran , Wassalaam
  24. This is so beautiful, I cried and i suggest you watch it.
