  1. (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
  2. 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
  3. Narrated from the Musnad of Abu Ya'laa, "On the way to the battle of Siffeen, Ali came across the river furaat and called out, 'Have patience oh Aba Abdillah! Have patience oh Aba Abdillah! So, his companion asked him, who is this Aba Abdillah you speak of? He said, Once I entered upon the prophet, and his eyes were gushing with tears, so I asked him, has someone angered you oh Messenger of Allah?, he said, No, Jibra'eel has just visited me and said, this son of yours Hussain will be killed, do you want me bring you some of the turaab on which he will die on? So I replied, Yes. He gave it to me and at this moment I could not contain my sadness and began to cry and until now I am still crying." Authenticity: Under the hadeeth, it says 'the isnad is hassanun, and Haythemi has narrated it(sunni scholar), Ahmed ibn Hanbal has narrated it(sunni scholar), al Bazzar(sunni scholar) has narrated it, Al- Tabarani(sunni scholar) has narrated it and the narrators of the hadith are trustworthy' Let me clarify that all of these scholars are from the highest levels of their school and this hadith shows that the Messenger (sawa) himself cried for Hussain(as) so when people ask us why do you cry for a man that died 1400 years ago we should say: The messenger himself cried for him. What say you those who do not cry for Hussain(as)?
  4. Salaam Alaykum I have have quite a while been thinking of Imam Mahdi (a.s) appearance,first how will we recognise the real Imam,what about Dajjal,who is he? is he leaving, is he in ghabah?
  5. Love God through your actions, not sayings Date: 21/12/2001 A.D Shawal 6, 1422 H By: Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) One of the teachings of the Islamic doctrine that tells us how to demonstrate our belief in the oneness of God is by loving Allah and asking Him to love us. We love God, and except God to love us… Our relationship with God should be based on love. Even when we fear Allah we are not afraid of Him as we are afraid of tyrants. For Allah does not persecute or wrong anyone. We are afraid of Allah as we are afraid to lose the love of someone whom we love. In that case, we would try not to do anything that might offend him and we would rather do everything that he likes, to ensure that this love will go on and will keep getting stronger. Thus, we fear Allah by not disobeying Him, for we are afraid to lose His love, and consequently His compassion and forgiveness. Allah has told us in the Holy Quran about how to love Him. He said: “Yet of mankind are some who take unto themselves objects of worship which they set as rivals to Allah, loving them with a love like (that which is the due) of Allah only). Those who believe are stauncher in their love for Allah -Oh, that those who do evil had but known, (on the day) when they behold the doom, that power belong wholly to Allah”. They take other people as equal to Allah, and obey them. But those should know that Allah alone is worth this kind of love. After all, we might love people because of their beauty, knowledge strength or because they were good to us. If we turn to Allah, we find out that He is the one Who created us, and gave us life, beauty, strength and graces… He is the source of all strength, beauty, wealth…etc, and those who are strong or beautiful and the like have gained their attributes from Allah. Therefore, if we want to love other people because of certain traits that they possess, we should love God more for He is the One Who created them and gave them these traits. Therefore, praise belongs to Allah alone, and we love other people because they are nearer to Allah, we love the prophets, because they are the beloved messengers of Allah. Thus, love is for Allah alone, and any love for others is associated with the love of Allah But how do we love God? Loving God could only be manifested by obeying Him and His Messenger. For the Messenger’s instructions are those of God; Aren’t we commanded in the Quran to take what the Messenger gives us, and refrain from what he prohibits us. If you abide by this rule then you love Allah, for if you love someone you would obey him. Let us now read some of the texts that teach us how to love Allah, and who are those that Allah loves and those that He does not. When Jesus Christ (p.) was asked about what could be done to make Allah love us, He said” hate this world, you will be loved by Allah”. But Jesus (p.) did not mean that we ought to leave the world and stop earning our living. What he meant was that we should not let this world be our only concern in such a way that happiness in this world is the only happiness and misery in this world is the only misery. Allah told Muhammad (p.) while he was ascending to the sky that Allah loves all those who love Him and love each other and depend on Him. He also told His Messenger that Allah’s love has no end or goal. Moreover, Imam As-Sadiq (a.s.) said that Allah said: “There is no way that My servants (can show their love to Me, better, than performing the duties I ordained. The Messenger also told us that Allah loves those who are prudent and forgiving when they are angered. Imam Al Baqir, on his part, warned us that we cannot love Allah unless we hate and confront His enemies. He also said: “Who always mentions death –will be loved by Allah” For he remembers always that he is going to meet Allah. The Messenger told one of the believers who asked about how to become one of these loved by Allah and His Messenger that he should love what Allah and His Messenger love and hate what they hate. Allah loves those who “spend of your substance in the cause of Allah, and make not your own hands contribute to your destruction, but do good; For Allah loves those who do good” .Be good to people and learn the joy of giving. Allah loves those who like to give.He also “Loves those that true to Him in repentance and purity themselves” If you sin remember to turn to Allah for forgiveness, for He loves those who repent and promise never to go back to disobeying Him. He also loves those who fight for His cause and do not become weak if they meet hardships. “And with how many a prophet have there been a number of devoted men who fought (beside him). They quailed not for aught that befell them in the way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor were they brought low. Allah loves the steadfast”. Allah also loves those who endure whatever happens to them and who are always patient. He also loves those who are merciful and good hearted. He says to His Messenger in the Holy Quran “It was by the mercy of Allah that thou was lenient with them(O Muhammad), for if thou had been stern and fierce of heart, they would have dispersed from round about thee. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them upon the conduct of affairs. And when thou art resolved, then put they trust in Allah. Lo! Allah loves those who put their trust(in Him). By putting your trust in Allah, Allah means that you have to do all that you can to ensure that you will reach good results, and then if you become wary of the future, you should depend on Allah and put your trust in Him. Thus, putting your trust in Allah does not mean, that you sit at home and wish that everything you want will be sent to you. It is to be a hard worker, who does everything possible and then trusts that Allah will reward his work with the best results. Allah also loves the Just“But if thou judge, judge between them with equity. Lo! Allah loves the equitable”. And justice is absolute; it should be applied on all, even one’s parents “O ye who believed! Be ye staunch in Justice, witnesses for Allah even though it be against yourselves or(your) parents or (your) kindred, whether(the case be of) a rich man or a poor man, for Allah is nearer unto both(than you are). So follow not passion lest ye lapse(from truth) and if ye lapse or fall away, then lo! Allah is ever Informed of what ye do” even if it were with you enemies“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do”.Allah also loves those who uphold their unity“Lo! Allah loves those who battle for His cause in ranks as if they were a solid structure”. He wants the nation to freeze all its differences and be unified in any battle it fights against its enemies. Imam Zein al-Abideen(a.s.) says: “Allah loves all those who have sorrow in their hearts” because of their sins; “And every thankful worshipper”. Allah loves those who do good especially those who give charity in secret. Those whom Allah does not love are the aggressors “Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loves not aggressors”. He loves not those who engage in usury “Allah hath blighted usury and made almsgiving fruitful. Allah loves not the impious and guilty”. But He loves those who give in charity “The likeness of those who spend their wealth in Allah’s way is as the likeness of a grain which growth seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains. Allah gives increase manifold to which He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-knowing”.He does not love the wrong doers“And as for those who believe and do good works, He will pay them their wages in full. Allah loves not wrongdoers”. The wrong doers are anyone who behaves with others or even with himself in a way that offends their rights. Imam Ali (a.s.) said: There are three kinds of wrongdoing: One that is forgivable, one that it is not forgivable and the third kind is the one that could not be left unpunished (as though nothing happened) the ones that is forgiven are the trivial wrong doings that one hurts himself with. The one that is not forgiven is ascribing partners to Allah; while the third kind is the wrong doing of others. Imam Ali says: “Never try to wrong do anyone who does not have anybody to support him except Allah”. Allah also does not love the treacherous “And plead not on behalf of(people) who deceive themselves. Lo! Allah loves not one who is treacherous and sinful”. And the boastful “Allah loves not such as are proud and boastful”. Our prophet Muhammad (p.) says: “Allah loves most those who do good to others”. Thus Allah wants us to be faithful to Him and to love Him by obeying Him and refrain from committing sins. Furthermore, our love for Him should be manifested by loving fellow men and benefiting them, when Christ (p.) says that Allah has made me blessed wherever I go, he meant that wherever I went I benefited people. Let us use our energy and potentials in this life, we should not let it die with us, but we should give it to those who need it. Let us work “soon will Allah observe your work and His Messenger and the believers”. http://english.bayynat.org.lb/Miscellaneous/Miscellaneous_LoveGod.htm
  6. Salam. As you all know, there are five daily prayers in (shia, sunni, sufi, etc.) Islam which according to the shiite islamic school of thought can be offered in three times. The prayers are Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha. Noting that Dhuhr and Asr have common times; also Maghrib and Isha have common times. (You can and please study prayers in Islam here: http://www.al-islam.org/commentary-prayer-professor-muhsin-qaraati and how to pray here: http://praytime.info/tutor.html ) And, reding some Biblical verses, we thought how Islam is the fulfilment of the religion, both in the aspects of theology and practice.. Ok, here you go: ''As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.'' Psalm 55:16-17 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+55%3A16-17&version=KJV One day, I hope to see the Christian brethren, especially Christian brethren here praying to God in congregation with us, inshaAllah. :) ma salam

  12. Fadak was a garden oasis in Khaybar, a tract of land in northern Arabia; it is now part of Saudi Arabia. Situated approximately 50 kilometres from Medina, Fadak was known for its water-wells, dates, and handicrafts. When the Muslims defeated the people of Khaybar at the Battle of Khaybar; the oasis of Fadak was part of the gift given to the Prophet Muhammad. The Prophet granted it to his daughter, Fatima. click the link below to view the pictures: http://imhussain.com/eng/index.php/history/375-images-of-fadak-personal-property-of-fatima Note: We are the International Media Unit in the holy shrine of Imam Hussain.

  13. 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.

  15. 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) I read this post on a Sunni forum ridiculing us for one of our major claims in which we say that every nation will be called on the Day of the Judgement along with their Imam (as mentioned in the Quran) and in the Hadith that whoever dies without knowing their Imam dies the death of ignorance. The Sunni post questioned - who was the Imam between Hazrat Isa AS and Rasool Allah SAWW. Is there an article or lecture that sheds some light on this?
  17. Salam Alakom, I have but a small request for my dear brother's and sister's 2nd of Shawwal is the day of the death of this great marg'a Ayatallah Sayed Muhammad al-Hussani Al-Shirazi, if my dear family can recite a Fatiha for the soul of this great man. I hope this is the correct location in posting this new topic, I apolgoize if I posted it in the wrong place! Salam Alakom. Some videos about the Sayed (this is a biography but it is in arabic) Here is one of his final last lectures, but with arabic subtitles: Here is a shorter biography with english subtitles: Brief biography of: Grand Ayatollah Imam Muhammad Shirazi - Grand Ayatollah Imam Muhammad ibn Mehdi al-Hussaini al-Shirazi is the Religious Authority, or Marje', to millions of Muslims around the globe. A charismatic leader who is known for his high moral values, modesty and spirituality, Imam Shirazi is a mentor and a source of aspiration to Muslims; and the means of access to authentic knowledge and teachings of Islam. He has tirelessly devoted himself, and his life, to the affairs of Muslims in particular, and to that of mankind in general. He has made extensive contributions in various fields of learning ranging from Jurisprudence and Theology to Politics, Economics, Law, Sociology and Human Rights. - Muhammad Shirazi was born in the holy city of Najaf, Iraq , in 1347 AH (Muslim calendar), 1928 AD. He belongs to a distinguished family deeply rooted in Islamic sciences, literature and virtue. The Shirazi family has produced many great scholars and Marje's (a Marje' is the highest religious authority) as well as renowned leaders. Two of the best known leaders are Grand Ayatollah Mirza Hassan Shirazi, leader of the constitutional, also known as the "tobacco" movement in Iran , and Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Taqi Shirazi, leader of the 1920 revolution in Iraq , which liberated Iraq from colonial powers. The Shirazi's father, the late Grand Ayatollah Mehdi Shirazi, has been a famous and a highly respected scholar and the Marje' of his time. He is a descendant of the holy prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. - Along with his father, Muhammad Shirazi settled in the holy city of Karbala, Iraq , at the age of nine. After primary education, the young Shirazi continued his studies in different branches of learning under his father's guidance as well as those of various other eminent scholars and specialists. In the course of his training he showed a remarkable talent and appetite for learning as well as a tireless commitment to his work and the cause he believed in. His extraordinary ability, and effort, earned him the recognition, by his father and other Marje's and scholars, of being a Mujtahid; a qualified religious scholar in the sciences of Islamic jurisprudence and law. He was subsequently able to assume the office of the Marje' at the early age of 33 in 1961. His followers are found in many countries around the globe. - Grand Ayatollah Shirazi is distinguished for his intellectual ability and holistic vision. He is recognized for his clear ideas and realistic solutions to issues of concern to mankind. He has written various specialized studies that are considered to be among the most important references in the Islamic sciences of beliefs or doctrine, ethics, politics, economics, sociology, law, human rights, etc. He has enriched the world with his staggering contribution of more than 1200 books, treatise and studies on various branches of learning. His works range from simple introductory books for the young generations to literary and scientific masterpieces.
