  1. ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ SC community! @313 Seeker @A_A @Mohammad313Ali @Hayy ibn Yaqzan @Ashvazdanghe Here's a little something I made just now using a pine plaque & my single-temperature pyrograph iron (think of a soldering iron but with interchangeable tips if you don't know what I'm talking about). I used watercolor paint to add some nice color to it after I was done burning in the design. I still need a lot of practice before I can begin making and selling pieces as some side-stream income, but I made this to put on my wall to remind me of the أَهْلُ ٱلْبَيْتِ‎ I'm liking the idea of doing names and designs moreso than living beings or creatures. Insha'Allah, I will do more of these and related designs now that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has steadied my hands somewhat.
  2. Assalaam Malaikum brothers and sisters, On the evening of 16 Shaban 1441 (April 9, 2020 I believe) I had the following dream: I dreamt I saw Imam Ali bin Abu Talib (عليه السلام) at my place of work. I saw him and felt strongly it was him although he stood between 1 and a half foot - to 2 foot tall. I was walking towards him and saw him looking at me - but I couldn't make out any distinguishing features or even colors of his garb - it was as if he was suspended off the ground about a foot high. He wore a robe with a belt and sash along with a sword. Next to him I saw a small girl (like she was between 4-6 years old) come out in front of him peering out at me. She had a curious look and had a smile on her face. I then noticed beside Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was a large cup of what looked like toxic poison chemical of some sort. I felt thirsty and knew that if I drank from this large cup that it wouldn't hurt me. The dream then changes - I saw a cousin of mine who introduced to me a woman I never seen before who wore red and drove a red car. Before she drove off we were discussing a possible time to meet for a date. She left and I realized I was in park of sorts where I had to walk along hills of grass and noticing that on my left foot I wore sandal/shower slipper and on the right I wore a sneaker/shoe. I was aghast at this. I continued to walk towards a pool of water with two spring fountains coming out of it and seeing a Christian Priest walk around it. For some reason I knew the name of the Spring Fountains: the one I saw on my left was Fatima (عليه السلام), and the one on the right was Zainab (عليه السلام) I woke up soon after. Would anyone know how I could interpret this dream or know what it may mean? Thank you.
  3. Dear All, I was listening to a lecture where the speaker mentioned Imam Ali (عليه السلام) compiling Qur'an in the order of revelation and giving a very detailed tafseer during the time of him being usurped of his rightful khilafat (time he stayed silent). I wish to know where that tafseer is, as that must be the best being a tafseer from brother and waseeh of Rasool saww. Kindly enlighten. Regards,
  4. Aslam alikum There was a story about Imam Ali seat under a tree mediating and some people came and make comment abut Imam Ali belly getting bigger and Imam replay was he was connecting with the universe and he is downloading the entire cosmos into his belly and the connection was by his spine can someone please reference the story and if it correct ? Thank you very much
  5. Was wondering if anyone can help me in finding a reference of this quote which I believe was derived from the collections of the peak of eloquence. “He has appointed death as my guardian angel. None can harm me before it is due, none can save me when it arrives.”
  6. أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّ الْوَفَاءَ تَوْأَمُ الصِّدْقِ Imam Ali (عليه السلام) Oh people, loyalty is the twin of truthfulness. What an important lesson with such little words! I guess we all know exactly how loyal we really are! I think we can all work on it. But it's a very interesting way to figure out others too. Where would you put yourself on the loyalty scale, keeping in mind it's directly linked to truthfulness?
  7. Respected brothers and sisters if you had the opportunity to ask Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) any question whatsoever possessing any scientific, jurisprudential, ethical, moral significance what would you ask. it can be as many questions as you want and mainly those ones you truly wish to be answered, and no matter the caliber of the question the commander of the faithful will indeed have an answer. perhaps some of the brothers or sisters could also aid in answering any of those questions which you pose and if not those questions can allow us to furthermore ponder and postulate over their significance.
  8. Read the Reddit comments to understand what the thread was about, since the post has since been deleted. ....................................................................................... I'm so tired of the utterly nonsensical and VERY COMMON Sunni notion of 'I am happy to seek unity with Shias as long as they don't curse/insult/abuse any Sahaba, and especially NOT Aisha, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman. Firstly, any Shia claim regarding the sahabi that happens to go against the Sunni narrative is considered insulting. Secondly, and more importantly, is that the same notion is true for Shias... You are insulting the Ahlul Bayt by not accepting them as divinely appointed leaders of Allah, and infallible individuals, and perfect preservers of the religion of Islam, and a high means of seeking closeness to Allah (intercession). Not only are you insulting revered Shia figures by not following them, you are commiting MAJOR shirk by giving a false attribute to Allah, by saying that Allah has not always appointed an infallible leader on this Earth, and that there currently isn't an infallible leader. Furthermore, the real kicker is that plenty of revered Shia figures, such as Abu Talib (رضي الله عنه), are considered kuffar by Sunnis. Is this not insulting? So, how can we Shias unite with Sunnis based on their own fallacious logic? Shias are the minority, and Sunnis are the majority. It makes Sunnis think that they are Orthodox and that they have to unite with Heterodox for political and humanitarian reasons, and that Shias must make [ridiculous] compromises. Shias are far more receptive to the unity message, because we actually understand Sunni Islam, and can see the commonalities. We understand that we can't make Sunnis compromise on their beliefs. Simply by being the minority within Islam, by nature we Shias already understand Sunni beliefs, whereas Sunnis have a basic strawman understanding of Shia beliefs... which is natural, considering that they are the majority. Anyways, the point of my post is the following: Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given. ...This is to show that we Shias and Sunnis can unite, but we cannot unite upon revered figures and imamah. ...This will also serve as a way of showing Sunnis that this argument of theirs makes no sense. Another important question we may ask is "What about commonly revered figures like Imam Ali (عليه السلام) who is given different status in both sects? Can we unite upon Imam Ali (عليه السلام)?" ...a common Sunni criticism of political unity is that "Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) is given an improper status in Shia religion because they call upon him... tawassul (intercession) of the 'dead' is Shirk! So there is absolutely no room for unity since we can't even agree on the status of the sahabi" [yes, I am aware that the Imams (عليه السلام) are still alive, but Sunnis don't believe this...] I would love to hear your thoughts. Wassalam. JazakAllah Khair. Fi sabilillah.
  9. Is this a short clip? Or a trailer for a movie or a series? I don't know but here's Abbas Al-Yousefi, a Kuwaiti director sharing his work on facebook..
  10. Salaam , I had a discussion with someone and he was against Shia islam , so it would be great if you answer him and help me to prove that Shia islam and Amir-momenin Ali A/S is right ! he says : and when he said it was his right to be after prophet he says and he continue thanks for your help...
  11. We have a strong believe that Prophet pbuh selected imam ali as as his successor.. All the difficulties faced by bibi in the reign of Hazrat abu bakr where was imam was at that time and why he was not doing any compaign against the caliph? Why he remained silent and agreed with them even knowing about the murderers of bibi fatima as.
  12. Salaam, When Imam Ali (as) was struck by the sword, he uttered the words, "Fausto Bay rabbil Kaaba" (I swear by the Lord of the Kaaba I am successful). In your opinion, what did he mean by it?
  13. SalamunAliekum, I (along with some of my friends) am planning to start a website about the magnificent personality of Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S). Although, we are planning to keep it humanitarian instead of religious. We ought to show Imam Ali as a warrior, a scientist, a judge, a friend, a husband, a father, a son, a supporter, a leader; in short as a great man, instead of an imam or a religious personality (which he undoubtedly is). The idea behind keeping it this way is that people from all religions, casts, colors, creeds, races should be able to relate to him and see him as their role model. At this point, we are in a phase of designing our website and building our database for the content. We need some good (authentic) sources for anything and everything that relates to Imam Ali (A.S). Be it his quotes, stories from his life, his lifestyle, his spirituality, history of the people who followed him, loved him, obeyed him, praised him. ANYTHING that relates to him. We need that. So I ask for all your help. Please help us gather some material so that we can at least kick start this site of ours, with something instead of nothing. If you have anything like: 1. Links of the websites where we can get material from. 2. Any blog that might be worth reading. 3. Name of the books that can shine some light on his (A.S) life. 4. Any sources where we can find Hi-res images of his shrine. 5. Short stories from his life are much needed. (THIS IS ESPECIALLY NEEDED). 6. Anything else that you think might be of use. Plus, if any of you wants to help in any way. Feel free to get in touch. More people, more minds, more thoughts are always better. P.S. We already have hundreds of his sayings from authentic sources in good designed way, so if that can be of any help to anyone. We would be glad to share. Wassalam.
  14. Salamalikum, Does anyone know a good book to read that's set in the narrative style on imam ali's life? By narrative style I mean I'd like it to be describing his life through story telling and not just stating the facts. If that's not possible does anyone have any books on the Battle of Karbala in the same narrative style? Thank you.
  15. Salamalikum brothers, quick question - Is this haram? Shukran.
  16. Salamalikum brothers and sisters, I was doing a presentation on Imam Ali a.s and I need a picture of his father Abu talib ibn Abd al-Muttalib as I cannot find it anywhere. If you have multiple as well that would be great, shukraan and may peace be upon you.
  17. Hi fellow muslims i have a question about this sermon by imam ali. it is called the sermon of pride - الخطبة الافتخارية Is this a valid sermon by imam ali or something else. Anyone here that have knowledge about hadiths who can validate the sermon? Link - Sermon of pride
  18. Salaam all, I want to share part of a sermon from Nahjul Balagha--127 to be exact. I am interested to see how it is interpreted by others. I feel like the message is pretty clear and concise. However, I am all ears. Imam Ali (as) says: ... With regard to me, two categories of people will be ruined, namely he who loves me too much and the love takes him away from rightfulness, and he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness. The best man with regard to me is he who is on the middle course. So be with him and be with the great majority (of Muslims) because Allah's hand (of protection) is on keeping unity. You should beware of division because the one isolated from the group is (a prey) to Satan just as the one isolated from the flock of sheep is (a prey) to the wolf. Beware; whoever calls to this course, kill him, even though he may be under this headband of mine. Certainly the two arbitrators were appointed to revive what the Qur'an revives and to destroy what the Qur'an destroys. Revival means to unite on it (in a matter) and destruction means to divide on a matter. If the Qur'an drives us to them we should follow them, and if it drives them to us they should follow up. ...

  19. I'm a sunni I want to know 1 aya that says imam Ali is imam in the quran. I don't want to hear the ruku argument cuz abu bakr also gave zakat in Ruku.
  20. I am a sunni and would like to ask all Shia a question. I have not come with any bad intention and do not want to cause hatred. I just want to know why Shias believe the Imams are infallible and where in the quran does it say that? My second and more important question is why do Shias believe imams have all knowledge? Where does it say that in a quran or hadith? In fact our holy prophet (saw) said that he doesn't even have all knowledge? Finally if they have all knowledge then doesn't that mean imam husain commited suicide?
  21. AssalamOalaikum, I have been locating the grave of the maternal grand-father of Imam Ali (a.s), Hazrat Assad Ibn Hashim. I got mixed reviews from the people, some says he was buried in Al-Baqi, and some says, he was buried in Mecca, nobody has a proper answer. If any of you in this forum knows about this, please share with me. Jazaak Allah!
  22. Miqdād b. ʿAmr (Arabic: مقداد بن عمرو), known as Miqdad b. al-Aswad (Arabic: مقداد بن الأسود), · A Noble companion of the Prophet (s), and one of the first Shi'as of Imam Ali (a) · Miqdad converted to Islam early after Bi'that and was one of the first people who revealed his conversion to Islam. He attended all battles in the early years of Islam · Miqdad, Salman al-Farsi, 'Ammar b. Yasir, and Abu Dhar are referred to as the first Shi'as (followers) of Imam Ali (a); they were known as Shi'as even in the period of the Prophet (s). · After the demise of the Prophet (s), Miqdad supported Imam Ali's (a) immediate succession of the Prophet (s), and did not pledge his allegiance to Abu Bakr b. Abi Quhafa · He was one of the few people who were present at the funeral of Fatima al-Zahra (a). · Miqdad is praised in hadiths from Ahl al-Bayt (a) in which he is said to return in Raj'a after the Reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi (a). He transmitted hadiths from the Prophet (s). · Several titles like al-Bahra'i, al-Bahrawi, al-Kindi, and al-Hadhrami and kunays such as Abu Ma'bad, Abu Sa'id, and Abu l-Aswad are reported for him Family Wife: Miqdad's wife was Duba'a, the Prophet's (s) cousin and Zubayr b. 'Abd al-Muttalib's daughter. The Prophet (s) married Duba'a to Miqdad although he considered her as having a great prestige and lineage. Children: Miqdad had two children called 'Abd Allah and Karima. 'Abd Allah was a supporter of Aisha in the Battle of Jamal, fought against Imam Ali (a), and was killed in that battle Immigration Miqdad emigrated two times: once to Abyssinia among the third group of Muslim immigrants, and once again to Medina. (he joined Muslims in 1 AH/623 in Shawwal in the Sariyya of Abu 'Ubayda) Presence in Battles Miqdad attended all the battles of the Prophet (s) Supporting the Succession of Imam Ali (a) After the demise of the Prophet (s) and the selection of Abu Bakr b. Abi Quhafa as the caliph and successor of the Prophet (s), a few Muslims stayed loyal to Ali (a) and did not pledge their allegiance to Abu Bakr, including Salman, Abu Dhar, and Miqdad. Miqdad was not present in the Event of Saqifa. According to some sources, he was a member of Shurtat al-Khamis. (Shurṭat al-Khamīs (Arabic: شرطة الخمیس) was a group of devoted fighters at the time of Imam 'Ali (a) who had dedicated their lives to support that Imam (a)). http://en.wikishia.net/view/Shurtat_al-Khamis On different occasions, Miqdad reminded Abu Bakr and his companions of the issues of Imam Ali's (a) succession of the Prophet (s) and took actions to clarify the matter. Here are some examples of Miqdad's activities in defense of Ali's (a) right to the caliphate: 1. When people pledged their allegiance to Abu Bakr, a group of Muhajirun and Ansar, including Miqdad, refused to pledge their allegiance to him and joined Ali b. Abi Talib (a). 2. Forty men went to Imam Ali (a) and said: "we are ready to defend and support you." The Imam (a) told them: "if you are steadfast in your pledge, then shave your heads and come back to me tomorrow." The next day it was only Salman, Miqdad, and Abu Dhar who had shaved their heads and gone to Imam Ali (a). 3. In the story of the Six-Member Council for the selection of the caliph after 'Umar b. al-Khattab, 'Abd al-Rahman b. 'Awf told Ali (a): "I will pledge my allegiance to you if you follow the Book of God [i.e. the Qur'an], the Prophet's (s) tradition, and the practice of Abu Bakr" but Ali (a) accepted only the first two conditions. Miqdad objected to 'Abd al-Rahman: "I swear to God, you have left Ali (a) who adjudicated on the basis of truth and justice". He went on: "I saw no household so oppressed as Ahl al-Bayt (a) after the demise of the Prophet (s)". Miqdad opposed 'Uthman b. 'Affan's caliphate. He expressed his opposition by delivering a speech in the Mosque of Medina. Miqdad in the Heaven: According to a hadith from Anas b. Malik, one day the Prophet (s) said: "the Heaven aspires to four of my people. When Ali (a) asked him about those people, the Prophet said: "I swear to God that you are the first of those people. The rest are Miqdad, Salman, and Abu Dhar." Also in an exegesis of the Quranic verse, "Surely (as for) those who believe and do good deeds, their place of entertainment shall be the gardens of paradise" (Sura al-Kahf: 107), Imam al-Sadiq (a) said: "this verse was revealed about Abu Dhar, Miqdad, Salman, and 'Ammar".[ Acting upon al-Mawadda Verse: Imam al-Sadiq said about al-Mawadda Verse ("I ask of you no wage except the love of near relatives"): "I swear to God that nobody acted upon the verse except seven people, including Miqdad." Miqdad's Raj'a: According to some hadiths, Miqdad will return to the world after the Reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi (a) and will be a companion and commander of the Imam's (a) government." Death and Burial Place Late in his life, Miqdad resided in "Jurf" (an area one parasang away from Medina towards Syira), and died in 33/654 at the age of 70. The Muslims took his corpse to Medina. Uthman b. 'Affan said the Funeral Prayer for him, and he was buried in al-Baqi' cemetery http://en.wikishia.net/view/Miqdad_b._'Amr
