  1. This has been bothering me quite some time now. A brother has posted a few hadiths which hinted towards this subject. And by this isnad, from Ahmad b. Muhammad from his father Muhammad b. `Isa from ibn Bukayr from Zurara. He said: I heard Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام say: Verily the Qa’im will be occulted prior to his rising; he will be afraid – and he pointed with his hand to his stomach – meaning, [afraid of] being killed. (al-Kafi) (muwathaq kal-sahih) (موثق كالصحيح) or My father and Muhammad b. al-Hasan رضي الله عنهما narrated. They said: Sa`d b. `Abdillah narrated. He said: Muhammad b. al-Husayn b. Abu’l Khattab and Muhammad b. `Isa narrated from Muhammad b. Abi `Umayr from Jameel b. Darraj from Muhammad b. Muslim. He said: Abu Ja`far عليه السلام said: No one answered [the call of] the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله before `Ali b. Abi Talib and Khadija عليهما السلام. The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله remained in hiding in Mecca for three years, afraid and waiting. He was afraid of his community and the people. Quranic Verses someone brought to show evidence of ambiya being scared and my rebuttal to them: [shakir 15:52] When they entered upon him, they said, Peace. He said: Surely we are afraid of you. [Pickthal 15:52] (How) when they came in unto him, and said: Peace. He said: Lo! we are afraid of you. [Yusufali 15:52] When they entered his presence and said, "Peace!" He said, "We feel afraid of you!" [shakir 15:53] They said: Be not afraid, surely we give you the good news of a boy, possessing knowledge. [Pickthal 15:53] They said: Be not afraid! Lo! we bring thee good tidings of a boy possessing wisdom. [Yusufali 15:53] They said: "Fear not! We give thee glad tidings of a son endowed with wisdom." -This sense of being afraid portrayed by this verse clearly does not refer to being afraid of the angels, for the angels respond by saying dont be afraid I brought good news. Therefore he was afraid for bad news. We can also confirm it was not regarding bad news for himself but for his people. Because the verses that come after speak in relation to the people of Lut and what is the role of these specific messengers. [shakir 15:58] They said: Surely we are sent towards a guilty people [Shakir 38:22] When they entered in upon Dawood and he was frightened at them, they said: Fear not; two litigants, of whom one has acted wrongfully towards the other, therefore decide between us with justice, and do not act unjustly, and guide us to the right way. [Pickthal 38:22] How they burst in upon David, and he was afraid of them. They said: Be not afraid! (We are) two litigants, one of whom hath wronged the other, therefor judge aright between us; be not unjust; and show us the fair way. [Yusufali 38:22] When they entered the presence of David, and he was terrified of them, they said: "Fear not: we are two disputants, one of whom has wronged the other: Decide now between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, but guide us to the even Path.. -In this case David A.S was afraid of the trail in the sense of knowing he was being tried and not wanting to fail. I think this case is similar to that of where prophets seek forgiveness even though they dont need it. So, Prophet David A.S showing fear here is showing the magnitude of being tried. It is not something that should be taken lightly, even for a prophets case who was chosen because of his innate ability to pass such trials. This is confirmed by the following verse: [shakir 38:24] and Dawood was sure that We had tried him, so he sought the protection of his Lord and he fell down bowing and turned time after time (to Him). It shows that he knew of the trial being placed on him. Therefore, it is only logical that a prophet chosen by God is to pass the trail else why be chosen by a All Mighty being to spread this "perfect" religion, if it was not the case that the prophet chosen is able to. He was not afraid for his life or those people, because those people state after telling him to not fear and solve their issue. If he was afraid for his life, they would have mention I am not here to hurt you. [shakir 19:5] And surely I fear my cousins after me, and my wife is barren, therefore grant me from Thyself an heir -This case is very simple. Prophet Zacheriya A.S was afraid for his family. This is expected of anyone, whether you are a prophet or imam. You care for the people after you die. So the prophet wanted a successor, so that one of the cases be to take care of his family after him. Again, this has nothing to do for being afraid of death or people. [shakir 19:17] So she took a veil (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our spirit, and there appeared to her a well-made man. [shakir 19:18] She said: Surely I fly for refuge from you to the Beneficent Allah, if you are one guarding (against evil). -Clearly Baby Maryam was only afraid for modesty and chastity, for the fact that there was a man with her in the room. It is expected, and it shows she cares for her modesty and chastity. You can see that by the later verses. [shakir 41:6] Say: I am only a mortal like you; it is revealed to me that your Allah is one Allah, therefore follow the right way to Him and ask His forgiveness; and woe to the polytheists; -Simply this verse implies Muhammad A.S is just like us, in that he has an end and is a man. This doesnt mean all man's weakness also fall upon him. That would contradict all cases that take him above a normal man that was granted by Allah. There would be inconsistency. Argument presented to by by a dear brother: Fear is a human emotion that even the prophets have felt. 41:6 says that the Prophet (pbuh) is a human like us, which implies that he still feels basic human emotions. Allah could have sent an angel to teach us, but He sent a man who we can relate to. Infallibility is the absence of sin, and fear of being killed is not a sin. It is a test that the Prophet (pbuh) and the Imams (as) have passed, one that we may not pass ourselves. Courage is not the absence of fear, it is to move ahead despite your fear. --------------------------------------- My argument will be mainly a rational (aqli) argument for I have not done extensive research on quran or hadith on this topic. I would also like to ask, did some of our scholars not uphold the same position I am holding on this issue? I remember something like this being said from our past scholars. Why I do not think your argument is valid : I am not conforming the sources around what I believe because these sources can be prone to error. If there be a sahih hadith found in which shows our prophet committed a sin, by your standards we must accept it. Where as, rationally, it goes against aql and it should not be done so. Them being human doesnt hold any significance for their will to go beyond human came from Allah regardless. Meaning, yea they were human, but they still brought the dead back to life, created beings from clay and etc.. Being Human also means being courageous and un-fearful of death or anyone, because it IS possible. The verse that which refers to being human can mean him being mortal. The quranic verses you have quoted can be allegorical just as verses portraying prophet committing sins do not mean they sinned. Same way goes with prophets and messengers praying for forgiveness, when it has a higher meaning and no matter what their status they seek the protection of Allah. I am not saying they dont have fear, for everyone MUST fear Allah. My argument: If we are to say prophets and imams were afraid of death and people a few things are implied: They doubt Allah They doubt themselvesWe are not talking about phobia's here (irrational fears), we are talking about rational fears, meaning there is a reason behind it. Therefore, them being afraid of death or other people result in these doubts in which more reasons stem from them such as they may have in fact sinned or cared for the material world to be afraid of their lives. The point of this argument is that Allah's religion is perfect, therefore there MUST be no room for doubt. Whether there is valid evidence or not of the prophets and imams specifically stating why there were afraid of people or death, does not rid of this doubt, unless it was being afraid for the sake of the people themselves. This attacks their status as a prophet and imams, and not only that, but brings about doubt upon our own beliefs. I do not believe Allah would allow such a case. Thus, I cannot come to believe it, rationally. Feel free to discuss! If any other points come to my I will add on. *Please forgive and bear with me. Sorry my post is a bit sloppy.. :P (wasalam)
  2. Salam un alaikum brothers and sisters. i bring to you a really nice radud, yet along poems that is worth listening to. This radud had many latmiyat, maqtal, anasheed in production. yet he would always be a khadem of ahlul bayt(as) i recommend you to listen to his productions. الرادود هادي الكربلائي - كربـــــــــــــــلا https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR3W20fxhE0 الرادود هادي الكربلائي - يتامة مسلم https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSDIE71Q1W0 الرادود هادي الكربلائي -- وياك وياك https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAEErck6BcA هادي الكربلائي - امير وبيدي رايه https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6MoCmk9RSo this is yet some of his beautiful productions.

  3. This is probably the most rational and best article I have so far read on the issue of infallibility in Shia Islam. It touches ever single aspect you can think of. From sins, to errors, to forgetfulness. Please take a look at this. Taharah & 'Ismah of The Prophets, Messengers, Awsiya', And Imams (Peace Be Upon Them) (wasalam)
  4. Did the the last prophet of Allah have intercourse to make a child, some say no as they claim he was nur and the purest of the pure also many said he did not have to relieve him self . Also does this go for the imams and other prophets. Someone please give me some explanations, is this true or false
  5. Assalamualeykum, I was just wondering if someone could tell me how can one dream of the prophets or imams? Are there any hadiths about this? And if you do can you share your dreams and of not why? Jazakallah.

  7. Bismillah ir Rahman ir Rahim. Salam :) to my brothers and sisters in Islam. My husband once asked a very interesting question. What language did Prophet Adam (pbuh) speak? we've always been curious to know this, does anyone know? Itemasei Dua'a. :)
  8. Straitness and the Prophets The Prophets encompassed a struggle when they came to mankind to preach. Allah says in the Quran to Prophet Muhammad: [7:2] A Book revealed to you-- so let there be no straitness in your breast on account of it-- that you may warn thereby, and a reminder close to the believers. The breast of the Prophet Muhammad was meant to be straitened because of what he was meant to preach. The literal meaning of the word strait is narrow. It is used to describe pain and difficulty. But despite Allah saying that "let there be no straitness in your breast on account of it", the poor Prophet Muhammad has his breast straitened; because of them. [11:12] Is it then possible from you (O Prophet,) that you will abandon some of what is being revealed to you, and that your heart will be straitened thereby, because they say: Why has a treasure not been sent down to him or an angel not come with him? You are but a warner. And Allah takes care of everything. But what did the Prophet say? He still asked for their forgiveness. He continued to feel the pain in his heart, and continued to ask for their forgiveness. That is why Allah stated in the Quran: [59:21] Had We sent down this Quran to a mountain, you would have seen it humbled, burst apart out of awe for Allah. We cite such examples for people, so that they may ponder. Such was the heart of our Prophet Muhammad, and that is what differentiated him from other human beings. And that is what made him special. The reason the Imam Mehdi will be different from other human beings is because his heart will be able to experience all the same and he would be able to withstand the pressure of it all to speak to Allah for one last forgiveness for the people. Would you try it and feel the pain and not fall down crying? Surely, you will not have the strength. May he have it! (The concept of the straitness of the Prophets is also there for other Prophets, when Musa said: [26:13] My heart gets straitened, and my tongue is not fluent; so send for Harun. And for Lut: [29:33] And when Our messengers came to Lut, he grieved for them and his heart was straitened because of them, but they said: We are going to save you and your family, except your wife who will be among those remaining behind. Also, the concept of straitness is there for the unbelievers: [6:125] So, whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He makes his heart wide open for Islam, and whomsoever He wills to let go astray, He makes his heart strait and constricted, (and he feels embracing Islam as difficult) as if he were climbing to the sky. In this way, Allah lays abomination on those who do not believe. (Perhaps some people will wonder here how is it that the Prophets feel the same way as unbelievers feel. Allah says in the Quran: [9:128]“There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you [i.e., your guidance] and to the believers is kind and merciful.” Allah has no qualms to set forth a destined time and send down His punishment. He says in the Quran: [32:13] And if We had so willed, We would have led everybody to his right path (by force), but the word from Me had come to pass: I will certainly fill the Jahannam with jinn and human beings together. [68:14] So, leave Me alone with those who reject this discourse. We will draw them on little by little (towards hell) from a way they do not know. [89:23] and Jahannam (hell), on that day, will be brought forward, it will be the day when man will realize the truth, but from where will he take advantage of such realization? There are many more Ayats that tell of Allah's reckoning and some more where He is stated to be quick in reckoning (3:19, 40:17, 5:4 and many more) but there are a variety of Ayats that tend to make a believer even more fearful of Allah's wrath: [74:35] it (Saqar : hell) is one of the greatest things. [67:11] Thus they will confess their sin. So, away with the people of the hell! [67:10] And they will say: Had we been listening or understanding, we would not have been among the people of the hell. [89:23] and Jahannam (hell), on that day, will be brought forward, it will be the day when man will realize the truth, but from where will he take advantage of such realization? All these Ayats, and there are many more, talk about the regret that the unbeliever will have on the day of judgment. There are also numerous Ayats where the people of the hell ask the angels and the keepers of the hell to pray to Allah for their mercy (40:49, 43:47). Thinking that hell will not be painful for us, or that we may never be able to get into it is equivalent of denying it. As it is in Surah Haaviya, man cannot comprehend what hell is; it is in a state of fury. He just seems to think that he will get over it or that he will not suffer enough or that he will be able to find the grace of the Lord...but that will not be the case. We must always deliver durood and salaam on the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa'Alihay Wassalam) because he was a sign of mercy for the people. Which brings me to my initial topic: why do the hearts of the Prophets straiten? It is stated in the Quran: [9:113] It is not (permissible) for the Prophet and the believers to seek forgiveness for the Mushriks, even if they are kinsmen, after it became clear to them that they are the people of hell. [48:6] and so that He may punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the mushriks (polytheists), men and women, who think evil thoughts about Allah. Bound for them there is a vicious circle, and Allah has become angry with them, and He has prepared Jahannam (hell) for them, and it is an evil destination. [92:11] And his wealth will not help him when he will fall down (into hell). These all Ayats point out to the facts that not the Prophets, nor the believers are permitted to seek forgiveness for those meant to be in hell. And then there a reason to go to hell. And then the failing of wealth to protect him.The straitness of the Prophet is because he chose to defy God, continued to preach, and seek forgiveness for each and every single person in mankind. Ibrahim couldn't do it, Musa couldn't do it, Lut couldn't do it, by God Nuh lived 950 years and he couldn't do it...but the Prophet Muhammad brought down the Lord's favor and said that even if you say "One Allah" I promise paradise for you. It is such a pity, that some of us are even unable to do that. Before I leave, some Ayats to consider: [7:179] Surely We have created for hell a lot of people from among Jinn and mankind. They have hearts wherewith they do not understand, eyes wherewith they do not see, and ears wherewith they do not hear. They are like cattle. Rather, they are much more astray. They are the heedless. [25:65] and those who say: Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Jahannam (the hell); indeed, its punishment is a persisting affliction. And, perhaps if you are able to comprehend this Ayat: [33:72] We did offer the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to bear its burden and were afraid of it, and man picked it up. Indeed he is unjust (to himself), unaware (of the end). Thank you.
