  1. Salaam everyone, I uh have been trying to reconcile something. If Adnan was the ancestor of the Quraysh and the Prophet SAW, and he existed sometime 562 BC, after Nebuchadnezzar II took out the Qedar (tribe of Ishmael pbuh, and ancestor to Quraysh purportedl) Kingdom.... and the Prophet SAW himself was born in 570 AD... This would mean there's roughly 1100+ years between them. And the Prophet SAW says his descendants are 20/21 men before from himself, all the way to Adnan. So.. There's a small contention here. This would mean on the AVERAGE age of each and every one of the prophet's forefathers at conception of the next descendant, would be 54 years old......... I'm sure some of you already realize that this is problematic. Most people have kids between the ages 20 - 30 years old. Especially in ancient culture/traditions, wives may have had kids as soon as they hit 17/18 or even younger. The Prophet SAW himself had his first child in his 30's. This is really hard to reconcile as plausible guys. It seems highly unlikely that this claim is true. Unless the first 10 or so ancestors had their patrilineal main guy at 60/70 years old, then the last 10 guys had their kids at 30/40 years old.... This wouldn't make too much sense (even that example is highly dubious). The average survival age for males back then... as you all may already know.. was 50's, 60's if one was lucky. Logically, it makes sense why culturally we have kids from a very young age: Because they didn't live too long during those times. Can anyone provide or offer some insight who is knowledgeable on the subject of the Lineages and Pre-Islamic Arabia?
  2. I have heard that the Prophet Muhammad had a night journey to Jerusalem. Where he met Jesus, Abraham, Moses, and John the Baptist and led them in prayer. How did the prophet Muhammad know that he was in Jerusalem? And, also how did he know who these other prophets were? Did he ask them their names, or did they address themselves?

    Virtues of Ibrahim (A.S)

    I just wanted to see fellow shia's view on prophet Ibrahim (a.s) and how he corresponds on the greatest creation list. I personally think he is the second best creation and that if it wasn't for him, Allah would not have made among his offspring the 12 imams were it not for his dua.
  4. https://www.quora.com/When-converting-to-Islam-how-did-you-choose-between-Shia-and-Sunni-Islam/answer/Majed-Jamaleddine/comment/15503190?__snids__=1496838197&__nsrc__=1&__filter__=all From Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa, from Al-Husain bin Saeed, from Muhammad bin Abi Umair, from Abi Ayub Ibrahim bin Usman Al-Khazaz, from Aban bin Taghlub who said: “I was in the presence of Abi Abdillah (Imam asSadiq), when a man from Yemen came up to Him.The Imam said to him, “O Yemeni brother, are there scholars among you?”He said, “Yes”.The Imam said, “What do your scholars achieve from their knowledge?”He said, “He travels in one night the travel distance of two months of the flight of the bird and the effects would remain.”Abi Abdillah said, “The scholar from Medina [referring to himself] is more knowledgeable then your scholars.”He said, “What does the scholar of Medina achieve from his knowledge?”The Imam said, ” He travels in one hour of the day, the travel distance of a year’s travel of the sun, to the extent that he cuts through twelve thousand worlds the like of this world of yours whose inhabitants are not aware that Allah created Adam (as) or Iblees”.He said, “They recognise You?”The Imam said, “Yes. There is no obligation upon them except for Our Wilayah and the keeping away from Our enemies.”[Source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 8, Chapter. 12, Hadees. 15]-All narrators are trustworthy. Hadees is Saheeh.-There are more narrations with the same meaning, hence making the Matn “Tawattur” (frequently narrated)Muhammad bin Abdullah Al-Razi Al-Jaamoorani, from Ismail bin Moosa from his father, from his grandfather, from Abd Al-Samad bin Ali who said :A man came up to Ali bin Husain (as). Ali bin Husain (as) said to him, “Who are you?”.The man said, “I am an astrologer.” The Imam said, “So you are a fortune-teller.” He then looked at him and then said, “Shall I show you a man who since the time you have come to us, moved through 14 worlds, with each world being 3 times bigger than this world, without having moved from his place?”The man said, “Who is He?”The Imam said, “it is I, and if I wish, I can inform you what you ate and what you have stored in your house.”[Source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 8, Chapter. 12, Hadees. 13]Imam Jafar Sadiq narrates:“We have been given the knowledge of the beginning and the end.”A person from the Imams (as) companions said: “May I be your ransom. Do you have Knowledge of the unseen (Ilm e Ghaib)?”Imam(as) replied:”Woe unto you. I know what is in the loins of men and womb of women. Woe unto you all. Open us your heart and see with your eyes and accept with your hearts. We are the proof of Allah in his creations. And none can accept this except all those believers whos hearts are as strong as the mount of Tahama and by the will of Allah.”[Source: Bihar Al Anwar Vol.26]And so on and so forth. I am sure you would know many more than I know.Edit: Just got sent this video. Do you guys really believe this stuff? Which Muslim does?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... I was arguing with a sunni and he presented these arguments, can a shia please refute these and see where I went wrong with my arguments
  5. Asalamualaikum, I heard that there is a verse in the quran where certain people are given the qadr of Allah. Before it use to be Rasullulah, but because there is no prophet then there must be an infallible guide to recieve the qadr of Allah in present day. Therefore there must always be a hujja on this earth. Does anyone know the reference to this verse? Also can one provide an article on the verses alluding to ALL 12 imams. Not just Imam Ali(as) or Imam Mahdi(as)

    Imams Vs Prophets

    Are there any 12er shias who believe that the prophets are superior to the imams, if so can they please provide evidence on why they believe so ?
  7. Salam Aleykom! I am new to this forum so I hope I've chosen the right forum for this question. My friend's brother who is Sunni and I were talking where he told me that he had a "Shiabook" where there was a hadith stating that Prophet Muhammad (saw) said that Imam Ali (a.s) is like Surat Qul Hu Allahu Ahad in the Qur’an, therefore he said that the hadith is stating that Imam Ali (a.s.) is like Allah swt (Stagfurallah). However when I searched for the hadith, I found that one of the sources was "Muslim", one of Sunni's most authentic hadith collections. Anyone who knows if this really is included in Muslim because I can't find anything, also are the other sources that's stated from Sunni books and are they "Sahih" (i.e is this hadith considered sahih by sunnis)? “The position of Ali (A.S) amongst the people is like Surat Qul Hu Allahu Ahad in the Qur’an.” Muslim, 1/48; Al-Tirmidhi, 2/299; Al-Nisa’i, 27; Musnad Ahmad, 6/299; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 191. Also is this hadith classed as Sahih by Shias? And what does this hadith really mean? /Mohamed

    Why Do Sunnis Ignore These Points?

    1) There is not Sunni in the world who has been able to refute this: Sahih al-Bukhari is the most authentic collection of hadiths in the Sunnah Sahih Bukhari: Narrated Jabir bin Samura: I heard Muhammad say "There will be twelve Muslim rulers." He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said "All of them (those rulers) will be from Quraish." Book 89:329 Sahih Muslim is the second most authentic collection of hadiths in the Sunnah Sahih Muslim: Narrated Jabir bin Samura: I heard Muhammad say "The (Islamic) religion will continue until the Hour (day of resurrection), having twelve Caliphs for you, all of them will be from Quraysh." Book 20:4477-4483 And there are more than 20 similar narrations Sunan al-Tirmidhi: The Prophet said: "There will be after me twelve rulers, all of them from Quraysh." Hadith 2149 (numbering of al-Alamiyyah) Sunan Abu Dawood: The Prophet said: "This religion remains standing until there are twelve vicegerents over you, all of them agreeable to the nation, all of them from Quraysh." Book 36:4266 A Jewish man named Na'thal, went to the Prophet and among the questions he asked who would succeed him. The Prophet said, specifying them, "After me, 'Ali ibn Abi Talib and then my two sons, Hasan and Husayn and after Husayn, nine Imams will follow from his children." "The Jewish man said, 'Name them.' "The Prophet said, "When Husayn leaves this world, his son, 'Ali, and after him, his child Muhammad and after Muhammad, his son Ja'far and after Ja'far, his son Musa and after Musa, his son 'Ali and after 'Ali, Muhammad. After Muhammad, his child, 'Ali and after 'Ali, Hasan and after Hasan, his child Muhammad al-Mahdi. These are the twelve Imams." Yanabi' al-Muwadat, p. 431 "This religion shall always be upright till there are twelve from Quraish. When they are no more, the earth will be destroyed (swallowed) with all its inhabitants" Kanz al-Ummaal, vol 12, pg 34, Tr. No. 3386 - Kash al-Astaar, part 1, pg 99 narrating from al-Ebaanah - E'laam al-Waraa pg 384 - Muqtazab al-Asar, pg 3-4 - Manaaqeb of ibn Shar Aashob, vol 1, pg 290 - Behaar al-Anwaar vol 36, pg 267, Chap 41, Tr. No. 87 - Al-Insaaf, pg 361 "Surely this religion will always overcome its opponents and no enemy or deserter can ever harm it till there are twelve caliphs from my nation in it. All of them will be from Quraish" Musnad-e-Ahmad, vol 5, pg 87 Nowehere in Sunnism are there 12 Muslim rulers, all of them from Quraysh. The 'Four Rightly Guided' Rashidun Caliphs were four, there were more than 30 Ummayad Caliphs, Nearly 40 Abbasid Caliphs, and many Sunni Caliphs are not even from Quraysh! Desperate / straw man Sunni responses: 1) "It doesn't say Ahlul Bayt! That means it's not talking about the 12 Imams!" Firstly, that makes no sense whatsoever. Maybe if it specifically said 'not Ahlul Bayt' what you're saying would actually make sense. Secondly, the 12 Shia Imams are the only 12 Muslim leaders who are all from Quraysh in all of Islam. http://en.wikipedia....List_of_Caliphs 2) "There are only 11 Imams! The 12th Imam does not exist! You have no proof he exists!" Firstly, it's important to note that this proof still completely contradicts Sunni'ism, but they completely disregard that fact and think that if they say Shias only believe in 11 Imams that, that somehow makes it any less contradictory to Sunni'ism. Secondly, this argument is made from an Atheist standpoint. Whether he exists or not, Twelver Shia believe in him and their belief of Islam is the only one in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah, so if you want to say you don't believe in the 12th Imam, you might as well be saying you are converting to Atheism. Thirdly, apart from the fact that he was witnessed by countless people at his father's funeral where he even led the prayer, there are dozens of hadiths confirming his existence, many of which are from Sunni sources: Surah Al-An'am, Ayah 55: "Thus do We elaborate the signs, so that the way of the guilty may be exposed." 2) It has been 100% authenticated in the Sunnah that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that he will leave the world with the Quran and Ahlul Bayt, and that the 'Quran and Sunnah' narration has been proven to be unauthentic. So why do they continue to attribute lies to the Prophet (pbuh) and reiterate 'my Sunnah', especially when the Sunnah itself confirms the 12 Imams? In addition to this: For those of who who are unaware, the Prophet Harun (as) was the brother and successor of the Prophet Musa (as). Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) in successorship had every right over the Ummah the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had except prophethood (i.e. to communicate the direct words of Allah in first-person), the same way the Prophet Harun (as) had authority after the prophethood of Musa (as). 3) Proofs from the Quran: The Quran says in Surah Al-Ahzaab, Ayah 33: "...Verily, Allah has decreed to purify you, O' Ahlul Bayt, and sanctify you in a perfect way" Sunni rebuttal: "No! It's taken out of context, it's only talking about the wives of the Prophet (pbuh)!" Firstly, it is important to note that nowhere in this Ayah are the wives of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned. Surah Al-Ahzaab, Full Ayah 33: "Stay in your houses and do not display your finery with the display of the former [days of ] ignorance. Maintain the prayer and pay the zakat and obey Allah and His Apostle. Verily, Allah has decreed to purify you, O' Ahlul Bayt, and sanctify you in a perfect way." Each Ayah is an individual sign of Allah http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayah Secondly, Sunni responses: Maybe these people should look up the meaning of the words hypocrisy and irony. They reject the Quran and Sunnah, but continue saying they are on the right path of Islam and tell others that do follow the Quran and Sunnah they are on the wrong path. Surah Al-Munafiqun (The Hypocrites): {1} "When the hypocrites come to you they say, 'We bear witness that you are indeed the apostle of Allah.' Allah knows that you are indeed His Apostle, and Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are indeed liars." {2} "They make a shield of their oaths, and bar from the way of Allah. Evil indeed is what they used to do." Surah Al-Hajj: {54} "That those who have been given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord, and so they may have faith in it, and their hearts may be humbled before Him. Indeed Allah guides those who have faith to a straight path." {55} "Those who are faithless persist in their doubt about it, until the Hour overtakes them suddenly, or they are overtaken by the punishment of an inauspicious day." {56} "On that day all sovereignty will belong to Allah: He will judge between them. Then those who have faith and do righteous deeds will be in gardens of bliss," {57} "and those who are faithless and who deny Our signs —for such there will be a humiliating punishment. " Allah will punish them for their hypocrisy and denying Allah's signs, as well as barring others from the way of Allah. Surah As-Saaffat, Ayah 83: "And most surely Ibraham was among the Shia of him (i.e., Noah)" Sunni rebuttal: "So?! Who cares if the Quran said Ibrahim, a Prophet of Allah, was a Shia?!" Surah As-Sajda, Ayah 24-25: {24} "And amongst them We appointed imams to guide [the people] by Our command, when they had been patient and had conviction in Our signs." {25} "Indeed your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that about which they used to differ." Sunni rebuttal: N/A This also backs the Shia belief that Imams are divinely appointed, and not elected as many of the Sunni Caliphs were. It is also important to note that these are also individual Ayahs. Sunnis don't perform Wudu according to the Quran (Surah Al-Ma'ida, Ayah 6) and say their Wudu is better Surah Al-Ma'ida, Ayah 6: "O you who have faith! When you stand up for prayer, wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe a part of your heads and your feet, up to the ankles." It specifically says to "wipe" part of your heads and feet, not 'wash'. This is further emphasized by the fact that it was not simply included into same part as 'washing' faces and hands up to the elbows, but rather is a separate articulation/elaboration. It also specifically says "a part" of your heads and feet, not your entire foot. Sunni rebuttal: "Our way is more complete! That is the bare minimum in the Quran!" Astaghfirullah... And these are the same ones making up slanderous lies about the Shia believing the Quran is incomplete? I've seen many Sunni prayer guides that, when talking about Wudu, say to wash the feet 'properly' by washing the whole foot. Is the way in the Quran not proper?! Astaghfirullah... Surah Al-Anfaal, Ayah 75: "And those who believed afterwards and migrated, and waged jihad along with you, they belong to you; but the blood relatives are more entitled to inherit from one another in the Book of Allah. Indeed Allah has knowledge of all things." This Ayah is clearly talking to the Prophet (pbuh), as it is talking about migrating (i.e. to Medinah) and waging Jihad (i.e. the people who migrated to Medinah and waged Jihad with the Prophet (pbuh) against the polytheists). Ayah 70 also starts with "O Prophet!" and Ayah 75 is a continuation of the same sequence. Surah Al-Anfaal: {70} "O Prophet! Say to the captives who are in your hands, 'If Allah finds any good in your hearts, He will give you [something which is] better than what has been taken away from you, and He will forgive you, and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful.'" {71} "But if they seek to betray you, then they have already betrayed Allah earlier, and He gave [you] power over them; and Allah is all-knowing, all-wise." {72} "Indeed those who have believed and migrated and waged jihad with their possessions and persons in the way of Allah, and those who gave [them] shelter and help —they are heirs of one another. As for those who have believed but did not migrate, you have no heirdom in relation to them whatsoever until they migrate. Yet if they ask your help for the sake of religion, it is incumbent on you to help them, excepting against a people with whom you have a treaty; and Allah sees best what you do." {73} "As for the faithless, they are allies of one another. Unless you do the same, there will be turmoil on the earth and great corruption." {74} "Those who have believed, migrated, and waged jihad in the way of Allah, and those who gave them shelter and help, it is they who are truly the faithful. For them shall be forgiveness and a noble provision." {75} "And those who believed afterwards and migrated, and waged jihad along with you, they belong to you; but the blood relatives are more entitled to inherit from one another in the Book of Allah. Indeed Allah has knowledge of all things." Sunni rebuttal: N/A This is also in line with other Ayahs from the Quran about Prophets passing down divine authority through their progeny. Surah Al-Anbiya: {72} "And We gave him Ishaq, and Yaqub as well for a grandson, and each of them We made righteous." {73} "We made them imams, guiding by Our command, and We revealed to them the performance of good deeds, the maintenance of prayers, and the giving of zakat, and they used to worship Us." Surah Al-Ankabut, Ayah 27: "And We gave him Ishaq and Yaqub, and We ordained among his descendants prophethood and the Book, and We gave him his reward in the world, and in the Hereafter he will indeed be among the Righteous." Surah Maryam: {51} "And mention in the Book Musa. Indeed he was exclusively dedicated [to Allah], and an apostle and a prophet." {52} "We called him from the right side of the Mount and We drew him near for confidential discourse." {53} "And We gave him out of Our mercy his brother Harun, a prophet." We come to this again: Surah Al-An'am: {82} "Those who have faith and do not taint their faith with wrongdoing —for such there shall be safety, and they are the [rightly] guided.'" {83} "This was Our argument that We gave to Ibraham against his people. We raise in rank whomever We wish. Indeed your Lord is all-wise, all-knowing." {84} "And We gave him Isaac and Jacob and guided each of them. And Nuh We had guided before, and from his offspring, Dawud and Sulaiman, Ayyub, Yaqub, Musa and Harun —thus do We reward the virtuous—" {85} "and Zakariyya, Yahya, Isa and Ilyas, —each of them among the righteous—" {86} "and Ismail, Alyasa, Yunus and Lut —each We graced over all the nations—" {88} "That is Allah's guidance: with it He guides whomever He wishes of His servants. But were they to ascribe any partners [to Allah], what they used to do would not avail them." {89} "They are the ones whom We gave the Book, the judgement and prophethood. So if these disbelieve in them, We have certainly entrusted them to a people who will never disbelieve in them." {90} "They are the ones whom Allah has guided. So follow their guidance. Say, 'I do not ask you any recompense for it. It is just an admonition for all the nations.'" Surah Al-Furqan: {35} "Certainly We gave Musa the Book and We made Harun, his brother, accompany him as a minister." {36} "Then We said, 'Let the two of you go to the people who have denied Our signs.' Then We destroyed them utterly." Surah Al-Qasas: {34} "Harun, my brother —he is more eloquent than me in speech. So send him with me as a helper to confirm me, for I fear that they will impugn me.'" {35} "He said, 'We will strengthen your arm by means of your brother, and invest both of you with such authority that they will not touch you. With the help of Our signs, you two, and those who follow the two of you, shall be the victors.'" Closing statement: Sunnis who see these signs from the Quran and Sunnah and continue to reject Islam in favor of Sunni'ism can no longer be considered Muslims (imo). There are certain requirements for being a Muslim, and among them are believing in and following the Quran 100% and obeying the Prophet of Allah (pbuh), neither of which Sunnis do. Sunnis have created and follow deviations in Islam, and worse than that is that they accuse Islam of deviations and fabricate lies against Allah's perfected religion. These issues are extremely serious and need to be confronted at every opportunity. I always see people who post here saying 'omg don't say that! You'll hurt the Sunnis feelings!' Islam is more important than their ego. The Quran says to talk in a way that is best, but never says to compromise the truth in doing so. Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) confronted the Sunnis deviations and wrongdoing from the very moment it started and called them munafiqun. People mistake his patience for passiveness. Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 6: "By Allah I shall not be like the badger, which feigns sleep on continuous (sound of) stone-throwing till he who is in search of it finds it or he who is on the look out for it overpowers it. Rather, I shall ever strike the deviators from truth with the help of those who advance towards it, and the sinners and doubters with the help of those who listen to me and obey, till my day (of death) comes. By Allah I have been continually deprived of my right from the day the Prophet died till today." Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 7: "About the hypocrites (munafiqun) 'They have made Satan the master of their affairs, and he has taken them as partners. He has laid eggs and hatched them in their bosoms. He creeps and crawls in their laps. He sees through their eyes, and speaks with their tongues. In this way he has led them to sinfulness and adorned for them foul things like the action of one whom Satan has made partner in his domain and speaks untruth through his tongue.' Footnotes by translator: Amir al-mu'minin says about the hypocrites (i.e. those who opposed him before and during his Caliphate) that they are partners in action of Satan and his helpers and supporters. He too has befriended them so much that he has made his abode with them, resides on their bosoms, lays eggs and hatches young one from them there, while these young ones jump and play in their laps without demur. He means that Satanic evil ideas take birth in their bosoms and grow and thrive there. There is no restrain on them, nor restriction of any kind. He has so permeated in their blood and mingled in their spirit that both have become completely unified. Now eyes are theirs but sight is his, the tongue is theirs but the words are his, as the Prophet (Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáã) had said, "Verily, Satan permeates the progeny of Adam like blood." That is, just as the circulation of blood does not stop, in the same way the quick succession of Satan's evil ideas know no break and he draws man towards evil in sleep and wakefulness, and in every posture, rising or sitting. He so paints them with his dye that their word and action reflect an exact portrait of his word and action. Those whose bosoms shine with the effulgence of faith prevent such evil ideas but some are already ready to welcome those evils and these are the persons who under the garb of Islam are ever after advancement of heresy." Surah Al-Imran, Ayah 19-20: {19} "Indeed, with Allah religion is Islam, and those who were given the Book did not differ except after knowledge had come to them, out of envy among themselves. And whoever defies Allah’s signs [should know that] Allah is swift at reckoning." {20} "So if they argue with you, say, ‘I have submitted my will to Allah, and [so has] he who follows me.’ And say to those who were given the Book and the unlearned ones, ‘Do you submit?’ If they submit, they will certainly be guided; but if they turn away, then your duty is only to communicate; and Allah sees best the servants." Surah Ghafir (Surah Al-Mu'min), Ayah 4: "No one disputes the signs of Allah except the faithless. So do not be misled by their bustle in the towns." Surah Al-Imran, Ayah 4: "Then those who reject Faith in the Signs of Allah will suffer the severest penalty, and Allah is Exalted in Might, Lord of Retributions." Surah Al-Ma'ida, Ayah 54: "O you who have faith! Should any of you desert his religion, Allah will soon bring a people whom He loves and who love Him, [who will be] humble towards the faithful, stern towards the faithless, waging jihad in the way of Allah, not fearing the blame of any blamer. That is Allah’s grace which He grants to whomever He wishes, and Allah is all-bounteous, all-knowing." Surah Al-Hajj: {54} "That those who have been given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord, and so they may have faith in it, and their hearts may be humbled before Him. Indeed Allah guides those who have faith to a straight path." {55} "Those who are faithless persist in their doubt about it, until the Hour overtakes them suddenly, or they are overtaken by the punishment of an inauspicious day." {56} "On that day all sovereignty will belong to Allah: He will judge between them. Then those who have faith and do righteous deeds will be in gardens of bliss," {57} "and those who are faithless and who deny Our signs —for such there will be a humiliating punishment."

[ Allah ] said, "Have you acknowledged and taken upon that My commitment?" They said, "We have acknowledged it." He said, "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses." And whoever turned away after that - they were the defiantly disobedient. (3:81,. 82) 1- How, did the messengers who were not physically present help the prophet Muhammad saww, as per their promise? 2- If the messengers were not helped the prophet Muhammad saww then they would be disobedient to Allah, was it possible? 3- The prophet Muhammad has been sent for the entire mankind as messenger till the end of tme . يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ شَاهِدًا وَمُبَشِّرًا وَنَذِيرًا O Prophet, indeed We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner. (33:45) وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds. (21:107) How he is being helped by the messengers to full fill their promise presently?
  11. (bismillah) (salam) I hope you are all in the best of health and most firm in your Imaan. The separation of the Church and the state has been a matter of profound debate over the past few centuries. While I'm not here to discuss the issue in general - because that has been done to death already - I did find a particularly interesting video on the matter: https://youtu.be/EbUUNonUgE8 You can skip to around 3:40 for the relevant part but I would suggest watching the whole thing. Anyways, the part which piqued my interest most was when the scholar argued that hypocrisy is a natural product of an ideological state and that even in the time of the Prophet himself, this is something that could not be countered or mitigated, regardless of how perfect the ruler might be. This was particularly interesting for me and there are two aspects of this that I would like you guys to discuss and give your opinions about: 1. Is hypocrisy, as he states, a natural and inevitable product of an ideological state, such that in a secular state the problem would not exist at all? 2. This argument implies that even the Prophet's rule was not perfect. Now, we all know that it was, indeed, not perfect as there were bad people and so on but we mostly interpret that as a problem resulting from the bad people and that the system itself was perfect in and of itself (just like God created a perfect system but evil exists because of the people, to give a relatively similar analogy). This argument, however, claims an imperfection within the system itself. Do you agree or disagree? Or, would you just argue that this is an example of a problem resulting from the actions of the people and not a fundamental flaw in the system itself? Thanks.

  14. The former leader of Sipah-e-Muhammad Pakistan was released from the Camp Jail in the metropolitan city of Lahore on Friday, after the anti-terrorism court of Pakistan on October 27 ordered him freed. Sipah-e-Muhammad Pakistan was a Shia resistance movement and a political party based in Pakistan, which was formed in the early 1990s in response to sectarian violence against Pakistani Shia Muslims orchestrated by Takfiri extremist groups. He further noted that the ongoing tensions between Shia and Sunni Muslim communities in Pakistan have their roots outside the South Asian country. Naqvi added that Takfiri groups operating inside Pakistan are being funded by Western governments seeking to sow seeds of discord and division among Muslims.

  15. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As salaam Wa alaykum brothers & sisters. Recently I was listening to a lecture given by Seyed Ammar Nakswani and in the lecture he spoke about how some people bash Islam because they have nothing written about the Prophet (pbuh) until 150 after his death... At first I was confused and even more confused when Nakshwani then said they have a point and the Sunni Sahih hadiths and other ones like that were compiled around 150 years after the prophets (pbuh) death... But then he mentioned a book called "kitab-e-sulaym ibn Qays al Hilali" He said that this was the first book of hadiths compiled by one of the companions of RasulAllah (saws) and AhlulBayt only 50 years after the death of the prophet. He then mentioned a hadtih from Imam As-Sadiq (as) "If anyone of our Shia does not have the book of Sulaym Ibn Qays Al Hilali, then he does not have any of our things and does not know an of our matters." Perhaps some of you already have this book but for those who don't, I want to share it with you so inshAllah all the followers of AhulBayt can have this book. Here's the link: http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/73073275/download?secret_password=2lx5n00bya7f4rikquik If that didn't work, this should work inshAllah: http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/73073275/download?secret_password=2lx5n00bya7f4rikquik Btw, I am on my iPad at the moment so I do apologize if it doesn't work if you are using a computer because the link may be for those using a mobile device or an iPad ect. But you would be able to go to scribd.com and just search for that book and it will come up inshAllah :) Wassalaam
  16. Muhammad, Most Popular Name in Britain Muhammed, the name of the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him and his progeny), has become the most popular name for newborn babies in England and Wales in 2013. Figures from the Office for National Statistics revealed that the name of the Prophet (PBUH&HP) has beaten Oliver as the most popular name chosen by parents over the past year, Breitbart London reported on Friday, August 15. Though the announced results put Oliver at the top of the list with 6,949 times, the statistics put the different variation of the spelling of the Prophet name in different entries at leading positions in the list. This means that "Muhammad" came in 15th with 3,499 children but "Mohammed" was 23rd with 2,887 and "Muhammad" was 57th with 1059 given the name. As a result the top three spellings alone accounted for the names of 7,445 boys, easily beating the second most popular name Oliver easily. News that Mohammed is the most popular boys name in Britain was first exclusively reported on Breitbart London following a leak at the ONS last week. At the time, Mohammed was already the most popular boys name in London by some considerable margin. The estimates showed that the Muslim name was the most multi-cultural London and the West Midlands, while Oliver came out top in the South East, South West and Wales. Britain is home to a sizable Muslim minority of nearly 2.7 million, mainly from Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani origin. The name of Mohammed has grown in popularity in recent years. In 2009, the name of the Prophet became the most popular name for newborn babies in England and Wales. Mohamed came third as the most popular name in Britain in 2008.

  17. (637) For the realization of three things I (earnestly) swear: charity causes no reduction in one’s wealth, patience against injustice causes God, the Great and Powerful, to enhance one’s dignity and begging makes God to open to the beggar the doors of poverty. And keep in mind what I tell you. There are four groups of people in the world. First, those gifted with knowledge and wealth, who fear their Lord in dispensing them, who give a hand to their kinds and who know that God has a share in their possessions. This group has the highest status. The second group is those gifted with knowledge but not wealth, who are truthful of intention in saying, `if we possessed wealth, we would practice what the wealthy do’. This group will gain the results of their own intentions and are equal in reward with the first one. The third group are those gifted with wealth but not knowledge, who make use of their wealth ignorantly, fear not their Lord in dispensing their wealth, give no hand to their kinsmen and observe no share for God in their possessions. This group has the lowest status. The fourth group is those on whom God has bestowed neither wealth nor knowledge, who keep on saying, `If we possessed wealth, we would practice much the same as the wealthy’. This group too will pick the fruits of their own intentions and are equal in vice with their leaders. (641) Forgetfulness ruins knowledge, and the knowledge transmitted to incompetent people will be ruined(too). (2) A believer does not resort to jealousy or flattery, save in seeking knowledge. (78) A hypocrite is devoid of two traits: reputation and deep knowledge of religion. (90) A little bit of action accompanied by knowledge is useful, and a lot of deeds followed by ignorance is of no use. (125) A scholar who avails himself of his own knowledge is superior to a thousand simple worshipers (of God). (126) A scholar who does not act upon his knowledge is like unto a niche providing people with light but burning itself. (128) A seeker of knowledge among the ignorant is like unto a living creature among the dead. (158) Neither is stammering a defect of tongue; stammering comes from deficient knowledge of Truth (God). (162) Acquire knowledge and through it, peace (of mind) and soberness gain, and to your teacher humble remain. (167) Advise each other in the acquisition of knowledge and do not spare your knowledge from one another, for treachery in this respect is worse than treachery to wealth. (177) All holders of knowledge hunger for new knowledge. (179) All kinds of knowledge will entail evil results in the Day of Judgment, save that which is put to practice. (205) An hour of seeking knowledge is better than praying one whole night, and a day of seeking knowledge is better than fasting three months. (218) Angels spread out their wings for the seekers of knowledge, for they are pleased with what they seek. (233) Ask God (to give you) useful knowledge, and take refuge with Him from useless knowledge. (611) Fetter knowledge through writing. (566) Everything has its own path, and the path to Paradise is (acquiring) knowledge. (347) Blessed is the one whose faults stop him attending to people's, who dispenses from his lawfully-earned wealth, who makes friend with men of deep knowledge and wisdom, and who keeps aloof from men of sins and vices. (264) Be an early bird in seeking knowledge, for early-rising brings you blessing and prosperity. ….

  18. Assalamu Alaykum I've often heard that there are certain things about Islam that Muhammad, pbuh, taught to Ali, ra, alone. Is this true according to Shia and are there any book collections of the teachings he was given? Thanks. Nur

    Our Mission Outlined

    Salam dear friends I am sure that everyone is witnessing some great changes and challenges of the modern world. The times are strange to say the least. Are these the end times? The possibilities exist. After study of many books and listening to many lectures, I have reached the conclusion that there is one guy who is ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT for all of us to listen to. His speeches are vital regarding our responsibility. I have a lot to share but all my work is summarized by these speeches. I INSIST again n again n again all my friends that they MUST listen to this: http://www.hussainiat.com/album/1921/01-safar-1435-hj-maulana-ali-murtaza-zaidi-201/16537.aspx I hope that it enlightens us. May everything that we possess be served to Allah, The Merciful. Waslam
  20. In Saheeh Sunan Al-Nasai, Volume 2, page 268. The hadeeth has also been graded as Sahih(perfect) by Alamah Al-Albani who is your greatest scholar in the grading of hadeeth. Ibn Abbas narrates, "I heard Umar say, By Allah! I forbid you from mut'ah, even though it is in the book of Allah, and the Messenger of Allah did it also". Your best scholar in hadeeth says this is a perfect narration and proves a couple of things: -With all due respect, Umar did what he wanted even when he knew it wasn't part of the Quran and the Sunnah -You can rely on no traditions at all from Umar because this is a clear bid'ah -Mut'ah is in the Quran and the Prophet himself allowed it. It is graded saheeh by your best scholar of hadith so you cannot argue with the authenticity of it. What say you?
  21. (bismillah) (salam) Nouman `Ali Khan and Bayyinah Institute visit and hold Jumu'ah at the nursing home of Robert Devlia. Warning: Prepare to shed a tear! loved the part when he began describing Rasoolillah Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå. His description reminded me of the many ahadith that speak of his [sawa] appearance, clothing style and physical features such as the bright whiteness of his [sawa] teeth, and the way he spoke, which brother David mentions amongst other things. SubhanAllah his description of the Prophet [sawa] is remarkable! By Allah the heart of every true Muslim years for the moment of meeting al-Mustafa!. May Allah raise us amongst his Umma on the Day of Account and may we be granted the honour of meeting him in the Akhira. Background: Robert Devila is paralysed down from neck to toe and lives in a nursing home. A friend had left him a Crucifix which belonged to David's best friend, who lived with Robert in the nursing home, which hung on his his bed post. His friend had found a donor and left to receive treatment only to never return. David's friend had died on the operating table. One night, David had a dream and saw a man speaking to a group of people in the desert who were sitting and listening attentively to him. David, who say's in previous dreams, feels pain in his legs and cannot walk, yet here he finds himself standing about 20 feet away from the group of men. It was dark. A fire was lit and the men were siting by it, listening to the man exhorting them. Robert then see's the Crucifix in the corner of his eye. The man then turns to David, pointing at the Crucifix, and gently says: God did not send Messenger's so the people could worship them. He sent Messenger's so the people could worship Him. Jesus walked in the market place and he ate food. He was a man. He was a Prophet.' I will leave David to narrate the rest: This is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Please take time to thank Allah for all the things He has given you. Robert has had almost everything taken away from him and Allah gave him Islam in return. But yet, subhanAllah, look at the happiness, the Nūr and contentment on his face. Please share and enjoy this heart-warming story. There is no guidance but Allah's guidance! For the background of this inspirational story, please watch the following by Nouman `Ali Khan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpeIw8jj-WI Quranic narrative of God’s conversation with Jesus the son of Mary عليه السلام on the Day of Judgement, recounting some events in the life of Prophet Jesus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0trOgZ-ydTU
  22. 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
