  2. Salamon Alaykum ! Peace be upon you all I met some memebrs here who hold beliefs that I thought are mentioned in Shia books but the way they understand these beliefs was diffrent than my way particularly memebers from south Asia One of the latest encounters is the nour/bashar (light/flesh) nature of our prophet and all the infallables which upon it they based their other belief that prophet had no shadow These beliefs are held by the Barelvis as well, so I am not sure which was the root of this belief for some of the shia bretherns here There were some topics about Barelvis discussing them in general, i find some of the posts there to be helpful but i am interested more about this specific belief of the nature of the prophet and its origin According to wiki , the vast majority of muslims in India and Pakistan adhere to Barelvis along with about 35 % of mosques in UK. Thats some huge number of Muslims that believe in things that shia believe in but in diffirent way . Where did it all start? Is there some ancient agreement between scholars of muslims back in time about the nour belief? is it in Sunni books? is it in Sufi teachings ?Is it solid Shia beleif? Which of these schools influenced the others ?
  3. (salam) I'm not a scholar or anything but this occurred to me and I wanted to get your thoughts/opinions. So we know that the Prophet (pbuh), Bibi Fatima (sa) and the Imams (as) are at the pinnacle of creation; with the Prophet (pbuh) at the very top. Now for them to be the most perfect creations wouldn't we have to assume that their birth-life-death is perfect, in terms of the reward and in the most loved way by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. Without doing any historical reading, can we not logically assume that the 'best' way for them to leave this world is through martyrdom? This is also, I think, backed up through the Qu'ranic verses and hadith; that the most blessed way to die is in the way of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. It may be a useless thread, but I think it's interesting. Also considering the Prophets (pbuh) death and how they could/should have passed away.
  4. (salam) http://www.telegraph...d-cartoons.html French magazine risks Muslim ire with Mohammed cartoons Fears that a wave of anger in the Islamic world could spread to France mounted on Tuesday as it emerged that Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine was planning to publish cartoons caricaturing the Prophet Mohammed. The magazine is due to hit the stands on Wednesday against a background of protests across the Islamic world Photo: AFP/CHARLIE HEBDO 9:42PM BST 18 Sep 2012 The magazine confirmed that its latest edition contains several cartoons featuring Mohammed that the publication's editor said would "shock those who will want to be shocked." The magazine is due to hit the stands on Wednesday against a background of protests across the Islamic world over a crude US-made film that mocks Mohammed and portrays Muslims as gratuitously violent. At least 30 people have died so far in demonstrations held in over 20 countries. Charlie Hebdo is no stranger to controversy over its handling of the issues relating to Islam. Last year it published an edition "guest-edited" by the Prophet Mohammed that it called Sharia Hebdo. The magazine's offices in Paris were subsequently firebombed in what was widely seen as a reaction by Islamists. Charlie Hebdo's latest move was greeted with immediate calls from political and religious leaders for the media to act responsibly and avoid inflaming the current situation. Jean-Marc Ayrault, the prime minister, issued a statement expressing his "disapproval of all excesses." The magazine's editor, originally a cartoonist who uses the name Charb, denied he was being deliberately provocative at a delicate time. "The freedom of the press, is that a provocation?" he said. "I'm not asking strict Muslims to read Charlie Hebdo, just like I wouldn't go to a mosque to listen to speeches that go against everything I believe." Dalil Boubakeur, the senior cleric at Paris's biggest mosque, appealed for France's four million Muslims to remain calm. "It is with astonishment, sadness and concern that I have learned that this publication is risking increasing the current outrage across the Muslim world," he said. "I would appeal to them not to pour oil on the fire." France's Muslim Council, the community's main representative body, also appealed for calm in the face of "this new act of Islamaphobia." Even before news of Charlie Hebdo's plans emerged, France's large Muslim community was being urged to take to the streets in defiance of an official ban on demonstrations over the controversial film. Messages on Twitter and social networking sites called for demonstrations to be held Saturday in Paris, Marseille and other major cities, a week after police in the capital arrested 150 people for taking part in a rowdy protest near the US embassy. Most messages read "Don't touch my Prophet", a variation of the French anti-racism slogan "Don't Touch my Mate" popular in the 1980s. France's Muslim community, most of whom have family links to north Africa, is the largest in western Europe. Source: AFP
  5. (salam) I'm sure many of you have heard of the journey written within the Noble Qur'an that Nabi Musa and Nabi Khidr (as) went on. A few verses in regards to that are posted below, as states: 18 : 69 - 73 [Moses] said, "You will find me, if Allah wills, patient, and I will not disobey you in [any] order." He [Khidr] said, "Then if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I make to you about it mention." So they set out, until when they had embarked on the ship, Al-Khidr tore it open. [Moses] said, "Have you torn it open to drown its people? You have certainly done a grave thing." [Al-Khidr] said, "Did I not say that with me you would never be able to have patience?" [Moses] said, "Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty." Nabi Musa a.s gave his word to Nabi Khidr a.s that he will not disobey him in any way and Nabi Khidr a.s told him prior to their journey as stated above not to ask him about anything until he mentions it first - why then did Musa a.s go ahead and ask him; given that Khidr a.s didn't speak about the matter first? As crazy as this sounds; it seems as though he broke his word by doing that. Can somebody please shed some light on the rightful interpretation of this verse? Secondly, in accordance to the third verse stated above and a few others further down the chapter (which I haven't posted); it seems as though Musa a.s unjustly suspected him - now many of us here probably already know that nagtive suspicion of somebody is in itself a grave sin. Prophet Musa a.s is Infallible, would he do such a thing? JazakAllah Brothers & Sisters In Advance.

  7. Barm Uttar Khand is a book of Hindu religion. Late Abdu 'r-Rahman Chishti (11th century of Hijra) translated it into Urdu, in his ' Mir' atu ' l - Makhlu - q ýt ' .According to that book, the famous Hindu avatar, Mahadev told his wife, Parbati, all the events of the future, while they were on the mountain, Kailash Parbat, and Bishist Muni, his disciple, wrote it down. The relevant parts are translated here from Muqaddamah Anwaru'l-Qur'an (by late Maulana Sayyid Rahat Husain Gopalpuri) pp.40-43. Mahadevji says:- “After six thousand years, the Almighty (God) will create a wonderful person among the children of Adam in Mundarne, which is between the seas. …….O Parbati, he will be from the loin of Kant Bunjh; and he (Abdullah) will have the piety and knowledge of God like a river; so (from that river) will emerge a pearl. And the name of his wife will be 'Sank Rakhiya ' And he (i.e. Abdullah) will have read three books; and he will leave the fourth book after reading only: 'Alif Lam Mim'… … O Parbati, he (i.e. Abdullah) will be a chief in his tribe; people from all villages will come to his door and will follow him. (Abdullah's son) will have no fear of the creatures; he will be very brave and having the knowledge of Allah, and his name will be 'Mahamat'. People will be astonished to see his style… … And he will not worship as the people of his tribe will be worshipping and he will tell the people that “I have been told by that Almighty and Only One (God) not to indulge in such senseless worship; and I am not turning but to Allah; therefore, you should follow me." O Parbati, Mahamat will teach his own shari'at to all the creatures, by abrogating all ways of worship and all previous shari'ats; and he will try to make all people follow him. Gradually, countless people will come into his religion, and many of them will reach God. And as people use our Sakh era, likewise, upto the end of Kaljug (the last era) people will use the era of Mahamat. O Parbati, after him (after the death of Muhammad's son) the Almighty who has none like Him, will give a daughte to Mahamat who will be better than 1000 sons, and she will be very beautiful and matchless, and very perfect in the worship of God. Never shall she utter any wrong, and she will be protected from every sin—big or small; and through her father she will reach nearer to God. That Almighty (God) will give two sons to the daughter of Mahamat, both will be handsome and beloved of God, strong, having the knowledge God, courageous, brave and matchless in the …of virtuous deeds. And the Almighty will not create, after them, any human being having such perfection in hidden and known virtues. The same two sons of Mahamat will be his successors; and they will have numerous children; and they will bring people into the religion of Mahamat day by day by their true arguments; and they will illuminate the religion of Mahamat. And Mahamat will love them more than all his people, even more than his own daughter. And these two sons will be perfect in the religion of Mahamat; they will not do any work for their own pleasure, and all their utterances and deeds will be for the pleasure of the Almighty. O Parbati, a few years after the death of Mahamat, some evil man will unjustly murder these grandsons of Mahamat without any cause; just for the sake of worldly greed; the whole world will become 'headless' by their death. Their killers will be ' Maliksh' (atheists), cursed in both worlds; they will have no love for Mahamat and will never get deliverance from ' Nark' (i.e. Hell). But in appearance, they will remain in the religion of Mahamat, and gradually others also will follow them, and stubbornly will do many deeds against the way of Mahamat and his sons. Only a few people will remain on the path of Mahamat. Majority will follow the path of those who killed the sons of Mahamat; yet in appearance they will be called the followers of Mahamat; and in the last days of k aljug (last era) there will be many of those hypocrites and will create disturbance in the whole world.” After that Mahadevji explains the appearance of Imam Mahdi; coming of Quiyamat and arrival into Paradise of Bibi Fatima together with her followers.
  8. Salamu Alaykum, I wondered if there was a website for the sayings of the prophets, like issa, ayoub, moses peace be upon them. If there is no website then if you could post some here then that would be much appreciated. Jazakallah Khair, Ali.
  9. Salaam everyone! So I've been doing alot of research on this, but am still totally confused.. 1 - I know the story of the physical ascension to the heavens - though I don't think most people believe that Hazrat Ali was there..so the majority Shia opinion is that it was only Prophet (saww) and Hazrat Jibrael (until a point only)...is that correct? So I understand that this night was very important: Prophet (saww) prayed with all the past prophets, spoke to Allah swt, the number of prayers were established, etc.. 2 - So my question is - what is the purpose of us doing the recommended amaals on this night? Like I know for Lailatul Qadr is because all the angels descend and ur destiny is decided for the next 1 year..some other amaals such as Amaal Umm e Dawood is also to grant any legitimate wish...then other amaals are for forgiveness etc...maatam is so that we get intercession of Bibi Fatima, and kind of helps in aakhirat as well and lots of sawaab.. So what purpose do the Lailatul Miraaj amaals serve? What are we doing during the amaals? (Asking for forgiveness, seeking help, praising Allah, or...??) 3 - Also, the other point I'm confused about, is that according to duas.org, in Shia history, it was also the day that the Prophet (saww) received first revelation, and official appointment to spread Islam....but I always thought that was Lailatul Qadr right?Wasnt the first Ayat of "Iqra" revealed on Lailatul Qadr night? Thanks a lot for your help in advance..since Shabe Miraaj is tmrw night for us, would love to know the purpose of these amaals before doing them:) Wasalam
  10. Why we all Muslims are separate? who did it? Who rejected the prophet decision on last Thursday? When prophet said I want to give u a ingredients and u will never loose the right path, who said we don't need it, only Quran is enough, was he more clever then prophet? When you will find answers I am sure you will find the person who separates and divide us. May Allah give all bright mind to find out the truth. Ameen
  11. (bismillah) (salam) The commander of the faithful says: “A right which has no one to claim is, indeed, lost”. Hello everyone, I need some advise. I live in China currently for education and in the university's dormitory building. Frequently, there is much noise from the people that are in the same floor I live in and in other floors also, i.e. shouting and music. From the perspective of Ahlul-Bayt (as) , what would be a good approach to deal with them? The reason I am asking this question is because I do not want to subject my anger to deal with this problem. Should I just keep quiet? Or should I do something? My roommate is also annoyed from the same problem, yet, we are quiet in the moment. He suggested we should live outside the dormitory, however; due to many reasons, it might not be possible. Thank you. Wassalam :D
  12. (bismillah) In The Name of Allah (SWT) , The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. (salam) I hope you are all in the best of health and, more importantly, the best of Imaan (faith). :D So, this question lingering in my head for sometime now. Before I actually delve into the question, I want to give a brief introduction into Ismah (infallibility) and the positions of humans, animals and angels. According to the Islamic tradition, humans are superior to any other creation of Allah (SWT) . This is because while angels don't commit any sins, they don't have desires and, therefore, their obedience - even though it is "perfect" and unconditional - is meaningless as the lack of desires means that they have no "test" to go through. This, also, means their sinless is not perfect as there is no incentive to sin and, therefore, they don't need to do anything to avoid sin; "it is natural"! Animals, on the other hand, are "all desire" and no intellect meaning that they don't have the higher nature which would enable them to do good deeds. Humans are, according to the Islamic tradition, found in the middle of these two extreme and possess the characteristics of both these creations of Allah (SWT) . This means that they have desires - called the "ego" by some and, in Islam, an-nafs ul ammarah - which compel them to do, what are considered to be, animalistic acts which may, often, lead to sins. Additionally, humans also possess the intellect which is the part of that encourages to do good and curbs our desires, stopping us from contravening the boundaries set by God. Coming to the concept of Ismah of Prophets (peace be upon them all) and Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all), according to the Shias, all Prophets and Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) are infallible and sinless. The Shias believe that Prophets (peace be upon them all), except Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) could make mistakes or choose the lesser good from two goods - a concept known as tark e aula - but they cannot sin. Subsequently, the Shias refer to Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) , His Daugther Lady Fatima (peace be upon her) and the Twelve Imams (peace be upon them all) as the masoomeen as their level of Ismah is even higher than Prophets (peace be upon them all) because they do not even do tark e aula. We also believe that Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) - Prophet Muhammed (pbuh), His Daughter (peace be upon her) and the Twelve Imams (peace be upon them all) - were Masoom (immaculate, sinless and error free) from the day they were born. After this introduction, my question is regarding how did the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) get their Ismah. By this what I mean is if they were already Masoom from birth, then is this not a "gifted" Ismah with no work of their own? If this is the case, then they are just like angels and, therefore, cannot be higher than them but, according to our belief, they are higher than any creation of Allah (SWT) . One of the bases of Ismah that have been mentioned by the traditions is that due to their immense knowledge, they were Masoom. In one of the Hadith, an example of a coal is given whereby the Imam (as) asks his companion whether he would eat coal if he knew what its effects are and the companion relied in the negative. So, the Imam (as) explained that just like a person would not eat coal because it is harmful to them, the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) would also not do sins because of their knowledge and, therefore, their recognition of what the side effects of sin are. (I was just narrating by my memory so I may have made mistakes but I tried to give the theme) So, the question arises: did they have enough knowledge to be Masoom right from birth. The answer, from what I know, is yes. Then, the question again rises that when they had already got the knowledge from God right from birth, then they did not have to work hard to achieve the status themselves and, consequently, were just like angels with an "imperfect" Ismah. I have the same query regarding the Ismah of Prophets (peace be upon them all). Just as a side note, I do believe in the Ismah of Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) and Prophets (peace be upon them all) so I am, in no way, trying to say that they are not Masoom but, rather, this is just a question that came into my mind. May Allah (SWT) bless us all, our families and loved ones, guide us all to The Straight Path with His Perfect Guidance and may He, The Forgiver of Sins and The Oft-Forgiving, forgive all our sins for, verily, there is neither any refuge nor any respite for the sinners except in Allah (SWT) .
  13. Hi, I need to give my Women's Studies teacher in college a response by Monday of an ayat/ surah/ scripture from the Quran which states that women have a right to sexual fullfillment. Do you guys know of any such scripture from the Quran?? I have searched online and haven't been able to find one. Please help!!
  14. Salam everyone, Anyone can provide me the hadiths or time of relevance when Prophet (pbuh) willed for Muslims to pary with their arms to the sides rather than folded. I need to provide someone who is willing to convert from Sunnism to follow the Ahlal Bayt. Please help?
  15. I believe the Quran says --> (2:163) And your god is one God. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. In other words... We do not worship or pray to the prophets, imams, khalifa's, scholars, or any human being! JUST GOD!
  16. Here is the part 1 to the recent article I came across.... Are we segregated in our own religion? Are we divided over who should have taken over the spread of Islam after the last Prophet? Do we lack the common sense to realize that the purpose of Islam and a true believer is to worship the one true God? Nonetheless, we have allowed ourselves to fight for thousands of years over the succession of our leaders. We seem to forget that no one owns the throne. We continue to fight over internal theology, land, money, and property. In these times, our religion demands unity and clarity of vision and yet, there still exists much inequality and confusion. Two of the biggest sects in Islam that have been in conflict are Sunni & Shi’ite. Let me ask you three questions: Do you pray to Allah? Do you read the Quran? Do you answer to the Adhaan? If both sides agree on these questions then no further justification is necessary. To be a Muslim means to be unified and not divided. Do not worship prophets, imams, and other greats who were sent to portray the ideal example of a true Muslim. The prophets were sent to prove the existence of God (Al-Lah) and chosen to exemplify the highest qualities a human being can possess. They even forbade their own followers from worshipping or idolizing them for they were only men. They reminded us not to focus on their miracles. Miracles would not exist without the power of the Creator. We pray to the one and only, most merciful, most greatest: God. The Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) who was sent to this world as the final Prophet of God, willed that his remaining materials and clothing be burned after his death. He did so to prevent the ignorance of humanity from idolizing or worshipping those meaningless and temporal material things. We are only meant to prostrate to God. No one else is worthy of worship since we all are human and we all are equal. Islam is unity! Islam is peace. Islam is a religion which teaches us to pray for our enemies and those who wrong us for they are in need of the fear and knowledge of God. Islam teaches us to be pious, generous, humble, loving, and to never disrespect other religions, regardless of our differences. Islam teaches us humility, self-control, and understanding the strength of patience. In Islam, just like other religions, there are good and there are bad. I say this in caps, IT IS THE INDIVIDUAL who chooses to do wrong, or chooses to do right. We are creatures of free will that is given by God according to His wisdom and plan. The mass media quickly and unjustly categorizes all of Islam as hateful due to the actions of a small minority. The media colors the word “Muslim” in such a negative light that it evokes fear and hatred in the masses. There are so many Muslims out there who live in fear of hate crimes and harsh discrimination against themselves and their families. It is truly tragic that these innocent Muslims live as prisoners in their own neighborhoods as if something was wrong with them. In addition, there are Muslims who are afraid to BE Muslim in public. They feel compelled to act in a certain manner and dress a certain way just to fit into their environment. In the post-Jim Crow era, African Americans had to make their best efforts to integrate into a desegregated environment but were still viewed as inferior. The situation of some Muslims living in the West is very similar in the post 9/11 era. I sincerely feel pity for the people who are quick to believe everything they hear and see. There are so many different issues that confront us during life in this world that it can easily fill numerous books and hours of conversation. I want to make two things very clear before I end this statement. The first: Islam is one! We do not need to divide and conquer within our own religion when the end result is the same and the faith we attain along the way is the same. The second point: My brothers and sisters, do not be afraid to be you! You do not and should not have to conform or wear a “uniform” to fit in. I write this to all Muslims that were raised being told that they fall within a certain sect. I urge them to wake up and put these differences aside. I also write this for people who are unaware of the real definition of Islam. Last but not least, I write this for the general public to realize the qualities we should learn to cultivate within ourselves to become more pure human beings. Qualities such as humility, generosity, kindness, gratitude, and patience. At the same time, we must to learn to turn away from the evils of jealousy, pride, egotism, envy, and hatred.
