  1. The following video is the first episode of the Hussein of Era series, I hope you to learn things and find a way to change your life for the real purpose of shi'ism.
  2. There was a question 'Are Shias Muslim? If so what's the evidence?', My humble response was as follows: It is as if one poses questions that Are Sunnis Muslim? Are Catholics and Protestants Christian? Are days and nights parts of time? Do the black and white colors fall in the spectrum of colors? If so what's the evidence? Anyhow, to address the above-mentioned question precisely and to know whether or not Shias are Muslims, one should know in advance what does Muslim literally mean? What does make an individual a Muslim? Or what are the most integral parts of Islamic belief system? A Muslim is he who follows the religion of Islam and surrenders his will to the will of Allah. The most important constituents that make one a Muslim are to bear witness to the Absolute Oneness of Allah, to accept the Prophetic missions of the divine messengers including the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him and his family) as the seal of the Prophets and to confess to the existence of the judgement day. The Shias and Sunnis unanimously accept the very three fundamental principles and thus are entitled Muslims. He who meticulously observes the divine law in his private and public spheres of life and his actions translate his inner feelings and beliefs, is called a practicing and faithful Muslim. One can find a another definition of a Muslim in our Hadith literature that says: الْمُسْلِمُ مَنْ سَلِمَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ مِنْ لِسَانِهِ وَيَدِهِ Meaning that “a Muslim is he who the people are safe from his tongue and hand, i.e. he does not inflict harm to people”. Let me finish it with Allah’s saying: وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims." [Fussilat: 33]. Thanks Reference: The Quran. .من لايحضره الفقيه، شیخ صدوق، ج ۴، ص ۳۶۲، ح ۵۷۶۲ .سنن النسائی، المعجم ۴۷- الإیمان، ب ۷-۱۶، ح ٤٩٩٥؛-٥٠٠٨
  3. Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters, From the title you can see the issue I am currently stuck with. I have met a sunni man and hope to get to know him better before we get married. We both started talking casually and there was no flirting. We talked about our families, issues, future plans of marriage, qualities we wish our future spouses would have. After a while, I realised he ticked so many of the boxes for the qualities of my future husband. I really saw potential in him which I never saw in anyone else before. When I told him how I felt, he was really relieved and said he felt the same and he never felt so sure about introducing a girl to his family. We both agreed that we wanted to be with each other with the intention of marrying each other. He is a sunni but a good muslim so Im not worried about the shia-sunni issue. We havent been on any dates since we only just decided to see each other but I was wondering if there was no halal way of seeing him? We are both quite young, medical students with the same mindset and ideas generally and islamically. I have done istakhara by myself and used a Tasbih, which gave a good result, but I was wondering if anyone here could do an istakhara using the Quran for me? I can't really talk to my local mullah about this. so background story aside, is there an islamic way of seeing someone? can someone do an istakhara for me using the Quran since I have a hard time interpreting it? Jazakallah
  4. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته I joined the forum ummah.com before I discovered shia chat and everyone who has replied (to a topic I made which involved something about Shia Islam) has been hateful and dissmissing of Shiism and its followers, they tell me that if you are shia you will burn in hell or that they insult the Sahaba and therefore shouldn't be called muslims, but kaafirs. I have trouble with these comments because obviously I don't share their beliefs, for example I told them about a man whom I want to marry and just briefly mentioned he is shia and suddenly everything is about him being shia, and nothing else that I presented. So my question is, how should I respond and what should I say to those that claim shiites will burn in hell, or that they aren't real muslims. I want to have something reliable to say, not just "no they're muslims" and then not have any material for that, because it is difficult to change these people's beliefs about Shia Islam. I hope somebody can help
  5. There is a question: As a Sunni Muslim can you explain what Shia Muslims believe and why? My Humble response to the question is: It is worthwhile to note that the question posed seems loose and general; for it includes too many conflicting issues that cannot be addressed properly and briefly. Anyhow, Islam is the last divinely-sent religion. Shia and Sunni Muslims are the two main and major streams of Islam on the whole. During the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his family), all Arab tribes had gathered under the umbrella of Prophet and had relatively forgotten their ancestors' tribal and historical hostile rivalries. Unfortunately, with the sad demise of the founder of Islam, the Muslims got split into two main factions: A) Those companions of the Prophet who supported successorship of Ali b. Talib and saw him the most competent, knowledgeable and pious figure to be the Muslim leader. They were of the view that it was Ali b. Talib who was explicitly designated by the Prophet some 70 or 84 days earlier as his legitimate successor. He was to play the different roles of a spiritual guide, a religious authority and a political leader for the whole Muslim community. B) Those who clustered around the first and second caliphs i.e. Abubakr and Omar assuming that their Prophet did not appoint anyone to be a spiritual and political guide for his community. When the political leadership of the community experienced a major shift to figures other than Ali b. Talib, the family of the Prophet (a.s) and the close partisans of Ali were isolated and the mass were too deprived of their true and precise interpretation of Islamic teachings. Later on, Muslim community went through internecine civil wars which deepened their division extensively and deeply. Anyhow, the issue of leadership and the question as to who should control the political power ignited the flame of discrepancy among the Muslims. Another main reason for the difference between the Shia and Sunni accounts of Islamic teachings is the sources to which their theological, jurisprudential and political answers and perspectives rely upon. To the Shiites, beside the Quran, Sunnah and intellect, it is their infallible Imams' sublime characters that are considered to be the legitimate sources of deducing religious rulings. Whereas to the Sunnites, the case is a bit different because to them beside the Quran and Sunnah, it is the Prophet’s Companions and (Aisha) -one among many wives of the Prophet-, who play a decisive part in forming the structure of their theological, political and jurisprudential teachings. Their theory of "the justice of companions" can be seen closely similar and as a parallel to that of their Shiite counterparts' belief. To the Shiites, their Imams are infallible and can provide inerrant interpretations of the whole Islamic teachings. Those who are interested to conduct comparative studies of inter-faith complicated issues, should master in different fields of studies such as theology, jurisprudence, history and so on and so forth. Moreover, they have to get rid of declaring shallow, outdated and dangerous verdicts that can lead to aimless and endless civil-religious wars in the Muslim World. The internecine wars that would have no winner at all save weakening one another. Thanks May God Bless Us All to Be Resurrected with our Noble Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him, his Family and his Elect Companions.
  6. Salam everyone, I'm new here so forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong forum. Over the past 4 months I've been spending a lot of time trying to learn and understand the basics behind the Shia sect ( born into the hanafi school of thought). I began to want to learn about the history of Islam and knowing my dad is shia helped intrigued my desire to learn. After reading several books and listening to lectures, I've really learned to love the ahlul bayt and come to understand somethings I've questioned so much. But recently I've been having some odd dreams which I'm not too sure why. Maybe there is a hidden meaning behind them or maybe because I'm delving myself into learning all this. dreams are in order which they've occured 1) I was at a costco and I left my car on in the front of the store outside with emergency signal to go and help my mother bring grocery to the car because it was raining. She took longer than allowed so I went to make sure my car was still there but as I was heading out, the employees were shouting at me and while they were shouting all I thought of in my dream was imam hussein (as) for some odd reason. I began screaming his name in such a manner that it sounded like ya hussein. I then woke up thirsty as ever! I went to go get water and then it hit me; in my dream it was raining and I woke up thirsty and throughout the dream I hear imam Hussein. I then hen stopped watching lectures and reading for a while because I thought maybe my mind was overwhelmed until I had this next dream. 2) I had a dream where the entire dream is a blur to me right now, but all I remember was shouting Ali and Husseins name constantly. After this I had another such dream and then I decided to just open up the books and continue learning. But my question is this, do these dreams have any specific meaning? Out of nowhere in having these dreams with me shouting names of the imams and honestly, I'm just confused! Any help with this would be ever so grateful!!
  7. Sincere Questions for our Shi’a brethren 1. Imamat for Imamiya Ithna Ashari Shi’as is considered as Usul e Deen and in maqam and position it is considered greater than Nabuwwah or atleast equal to Nabuwwah. We would like to ask you that how has this Usul e Deen not stated in Quran al Kerim. Allah Almighty time and again tells us to Believe in Allah and the Ambiyaa in Kutub wa Suhuf e Ambiyaa a.s, in Maa’d in Jannah in Jahannam in Meezan in Malak and many other important matters. But no where in the whole Quran al Kerim are we commanded or told to Believe in Imams or the understanding of “Imamat” is not in line with Quranic dawah. How can an Usul e Deen be established when it finds no mention in the Quran al Kerim? 2. Imam ‘Ali a.s did not consider the rebels of Shaam as Kuffar for they did not believe in the Imamah/Khilafah of Amirul Momineen and also those who did not accept Imamah of Imam al Hasan a.s were not unbelievers. So does a disbelief in any Usul e Deen imply Kufr and if not then please give us your definition of what “Usul e Deen “ is. 3. In Nahjul Balagha we do not find any support for the Shi’a concept of Imamah raher on contrary maters of Imamah wal Khilafah were considered as per consensus of Muhajireen wal Ansaar and at many places Imam ‘Ali himself stated that people have no option but to have an Amir be it good or bad. A sincere study of Nahjul Balagha will prove that the understanding of Imamah which was later developed by Shi’a was not the Manhaj and belief of Salaf e Saliheen and is a later innovation. 4. Is Khilafah of Imam ‘Ali a.s mansoos MinAllah if yes then how can Imam be ready for arbitration to chose a Caliph whereas this mansab is from Allah Almighty and not men. This amal of Imam Ali and also of Imam Hasan a.s proves that Khilafah is not Mansoos MinAllah in the sense the shi’a believe it btu rather as per the agreed upon choice of the best of Muslims of their time and that decision is condiered Mansoos MinAllah. 5. We would like to ask the Shi’a that whether the Promise of Allah Almighty in Surah Nur to give Khilafah and then peace and security to the Muslims , whether this promised has been fulfilled or we wait for time of Imam al Mahdi a.s for this to be fulfilled. In Nahjul Balagha the advises and words of Imam ‘Ali a.s to Hazrat ‘Umar r.a is a shining proof that Imam referred to a promise from Allah in terms of victories of Muslims over Kaiser wal Kisra. And referred to Khalifa as string for the beads. And many others words of wisdom from ‘Amir a.s are shining proof that Salaf e Saliheen understood Khilafat e Rashida r.a as fulfilling this promise of Allah for khilafah to Muslims . 6. Tahrif e Quran: The shi’a state that it is foundational belief of Shi’a Imamiya that there is not a Tahrif of a single Alif or a letter and it is present with us as it was before pure and in original form. Shaykh Saduq, Shaykh Tusi, Sharif Murtaza, Ayatullah Khoei and others are all unianimous on it. We have to give them the credit of trying to educate the Juhalaa among the Shi’a but we ask the Shi’a that do they consider those who believe in Tahrif of Quran al Kerim as Muslims anymore or Kuffar. However it is saddening that the shi’a do not do so as Al-Majlisi, Tabrisi, Qummi and Al-Mufid and others believe in Tahrif e Quran and yet the shia still looka t these scholars as leaders of guidance. Clearly this is a sign of their dishonest and hypocritical stand! Any sane and sincere looker can see through this fallacy and deception. I really believe that because of the stance of Shi’a towards Quran al Kerim they have produced very very scarce and few Huffaz and even they cannot meet the caliber of the Huffaz from Ahle Sunnah Wal Jamaah. The urge and great love for Tilawah and organizing the study of Quran al kerim and to do Hifz is found in Ahle Sunnah and not in shi’a and the reason is centuries of their Aqaaed of Tahrif e Quran and doubts over its being in original form and also in their notion that it is not present in the Tartib ‘Ali a.s had compiled. But now in Iran a lot of people are arising from this deception the late Ayatullah Tabatabai felt this big gap and hence produced a Tafsir known as Tafsir al Mizan. 7. Sahaba: In Quran al kerim, Nahjul Balagha, Sahifah e Sjaadiya if we look at the understanding of Sahaba then only way of Ahle Sunnah wal Jamaah is in line with Quran al Kerim and Nahjul Balagha and Sahifah e Imam Ali bin al Hussain. The fact that their praise in mentioned in Quran al Kerim and authentic ahadith is enough a proof for the Fazilat e Sahaba e Kiraam. The Shi’a never attack the companions of Imams and it seems from their ways that they honor ‘Ali a.s more than Rasoolallah saws as they do not realise the branches are not like the root. And the Adab and love of Rasoolallah Saws would have demanded from them to keep their tongues shut in matters of Sahaba e Kiraam and realized that they had believed and occumpanied Nabi e Akhiruzamaan saws and fought for Islam and laid their lives and wealth for the cause of Islam and spread the Word of Tawhid across the world. This is the reason that we find less love for Quran al Kerim, Implementing Sunnah and Jihad in the Shi’a as Sahaba e Kiraam are the real Pioneers in them and this Deen spread through them. This is why very few books on Seerah and few Naat khaawn were found among the Shi’a. This is why their hearts do not Brim with Zikr e Mustafa (Saws) like you find with Ahle Sunnah. Their support of Yahud wal Nasara and despising Jihad and how Allah Almighty has always strengthened Borders of Islam through followers of Sahaba e Kiraam and Ahle Sunnah wal Jamaah is another shining proof of the Shia being on misguidance. We will only focus on Usul. I fail to understand how can the reports of Holy Prophet Saws be relied upon unless we do not remove the shi’a way of thinking. In terms of Ilm e Rijaal and science of Hadith Shi’a cannot match the hardwork and knowledge base of Ahle Sunnah wal Jamaah. The foundation of Shia thought process is very weak but that of Ahle Sunnah is like steel so on what should one base his/her Aqaaed. Taqqiyah, Rajat and Badaa all these aqaaed are indeed not in line with understanding of the Quran al Kerim by the Salaf e Saliheen and hence are later innovations of the Shi’a. We seek sincere answers of the Shi’a to these questions of ours and ask them that is not their line of thinking actually trying to paint a very negative picture of First Muslims and What hope does his generation or many others have in a revolution and change and Tazkiyaa wa Tasfiyaa if he Greatest of all Teachers Nabi e Akhiruzamaan Saws could not bring such a change only handful of Muslims remained true to their belief and then their belief of Imamat and Taqqiyah . I believe these are genuine questions every shia should ponder over and Allah has power over all things and He alone is Al-Hadi
  8. Hi all, I was wondering, the only time the Ahlul-Bayt are mentioned in the Quran, the verses refer to the prophet's wives and not the household of Hazrat Ali RA. Verse 33:32- O wives of the Prophet, you are not like anyone among women. If you fear Allah , then do not be soft in speech [to men], lest he in whose heart is disease should covet, but speak with appropriate speech. Verse 33:33- And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet's] household [Ahlul-Bayt], and to purify you with [extensive] purification. See, these verses suggest that the Ahlul-Bayt are the prophet's wives and not the family of Hazrat Ali RA. My dear and beloved Shia brothers and sisters, what do you think about this? MuhammadXII
  9. Bukhari wrote in his book: "When Umar was stabbed he felt great pain and Ibn Abbas wanted to comfort him, so he said to him, "O Commander of the Believers, you accompanied the Messenger of Allah and you were a good companion to him, and when he left you, he was very pleased with you. Then you accompanied Abu Bakr, and you were a good companion to him, and when he left you, he was pleased with you. Then you accompanied their companions and you were a good companion to them, and if you left them, they would remember you well." He said, "As for the companionship of the Messenger of Allah and his satisfaction with me, that is a gift that Allah, the Most High, has granted to me. As for the companionship of Abu Bakr and his satisfaction with me, that is a gift that Allah, Glory be to Him, has granted to me. But the reason you see me in pain is for you and your companions. By Allah, if I had all the gold on earth I would use it to ransom myself from the torture of Allah, Glory and Majesty be to Him, before I saw Him. Sahih, Bukhari, vol 2 p 201 He has also been quoted as saying the following, "I wish I was my family's sheep. They would have fattened me up to the maximum. When they were visited by friends, they would have killed me and roasted part of me, and made qadid (meat cut into strips and dried) from the other part of it, then they would have eaten me, and lastly, they would have relieved me with their bowel evacuation ... I wish I had been all that, rather than a human being." MinHajj as Sunnah, Ibn Taymiyya, vol 3 p 131; Hilyat al Awliya, Ibn Abi Nuaym, vol 1 p 52
  10. Saudi Arabia's grand mufti says Iranians are not Muslims Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh said Iranians are descendants of Majuws, a term that refers to followers of Zoroastrianism. so there goes the ahl sunna sahis eh? So what are they gonna rely on now ? Since Bukhari and Muslim were Iranians!!
  11. In al-Bukhari's book, and in many places when ‘Ali's name appears, he put "May Allah's peace be upon him" as well as the names of Fatimah and al-Husayn. In his book, al-Bukhari writes in a chapter entitled "The virtues of the relatives of the Messenger of Allah" the following: The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "Fatimah is part of me, and whoever angers her angers me." Also in a chapter about "The Khaybar Raid" he wrote: According to Aishah, Fatimah- may Allah's peace be upon her - daughter of the Prophet, sent a message to Abu Bakr asking him for her share of the inheritance of the Messenger of Allah, but he refused to pay Fatimah anything of it. Fatimah became so angry at Abu Bakr that she left him and never spoke to him before her death. Sahih, Bukhari, vol 3 p 39 The purification verse from the Holy Qur'an is another indication of her infallibility, and it was revealed in her honor and the honor of her husband and her two sons, as Aishah herself testified.
  12. The Companions in the Military Detachment under Usamah The Prophet (saw) organized an army to be sent to Asia Minor two days before his death. He appointed Usamah ibn Zayd ibn Haritha, (who was eighteen years old), as its commander in chief, then the holy Prophet attached some important men, both MuHajjireen and Ansar, to this expedition, such as Abu Bakr, Umar, Abu Obaydah and other well-known Companions. Some people criticized the Prophet for appointing Usamah as the commander in chief of that army, and asked how could he have appointed such a young man as their commander. In fact the same people had previously criticized the Prophet for appointing Usamah's father as an army commander before him. They went on criticizing until the Prophet became so angry that he left his bed, feverish and with his head bandaged, with two men supporting him and his feet barely touching the ground. He ascended the pulpit, praised Allah highly then said, “O People! I have been informed that some of you object to my appointing Usamah as commander of the detachment. You now object to my appointing Usamah as commander in chief as you objected to me appointing his father commander in chief before him. By Allah, his father was certainly competent for his appointment as commander in chief and his son is also competent for the appointment.” Al-Tabaqat by Ibn Sa’ad Vol.; Tarikh Ibn al-Athir Vol. 2 page 317; Al-Sirah al-Halabiyah Vol. 3 page 207; Tarikh al-Tabari Vol. 3 page 226 Then he exhorted them to start without further delay and kept saying, “Send the detachment of Usamah; deploy the detachment of Usamah, send forward the detachment of Usamah." He kept repeating the exhortations but the Companions were still sluggish, and camped by al-Jurf. Whatever the Messenger gives you, accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back." (Holy Qur'an 59:7) "And it behooves not a believing man and a believing woman that they should have any choice in their matter when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he surely strays off a manifest straying." (Holy Qur'an 33:36)
  13. This a the last music video of Hamed Zamani, Iranian revolutionary singer.
  14. The Companions and the Raziyat Yawm al Khamis (The Calamity of Thursday) Ibn Abbas said: Thursday, and what a Thursday that was! The Messenger's pain became very severe, and he said, "Come here, I will write you a document which will prevent you from straying from the right path." But Umar said that the Prophet was under the spell of the pain, and that they had the Qur'an which was sufficient being the Book of Allah. Those who were present then differed and quarreled amongst themselves, some of them agreeing with what the Prophet said, while others supported Umar's view. When the debate became heated and the noise became louder, the Messenger of Allah said to them, "Leave me alone." Ibn Abbas said: “The disaster was that the disagreement among the Companions prevented the Messenger from writing that document for them.” Sahih, Bukhari, Chapter: About the saying of the sick, vol 2, Sahih, Muslim, End of the book of al Wasiyyah, vol 5 p 75, Musnad, Ahmed, vol 1 p 335, vol 5 p 116 Tarikh, Tabari, vol 3 p 193, Tarikh, Ibn al Athir, vol 2 p 320 O You who believe! Do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, and do not speak loud to him as you speak loud to one another, lest your deeds become null while you do not perceive.” (Holy Qur'an 49:2) Umar says we have the Quran and it is sufficient for us? Who brought the Quran him or the Holy Prophet (pbuh and his family ) I am sure he knew what was sufficient and what wasn't for the umma.
  15. The Companions at the Peace Treaty of al Hudaibiyah In the sixth the Messenger of Allah with one thousand and four hundred of his Companions marched towards Mecca to do the Umrah. They camped in "Dhi al-Halifah" where the Prophet (saw) ordered his Companions to put down their arms and wear the Ihram, then they dispatched al-Hady (an offering for sacrifice) to inform Quraysh that he was coming as a visitor to do the Umrah and not as a fighter. But Quraysh, with all its arrogance, feared that its reputation would be dented if the other Arabs heard that Muhammad had entered Mecca by force. Therefore, they sent a delegation led by Suhayl ibn Amr ibn Abd Wadd al-Amiri to see the Prophet and ask him to turn back that year, but said that they would allow him to visit Mecca for three days the year after. In addition to that, they put down some harsh conditions, which were accepted by the Messenger of Allah as the circumstances warranted such acceptance, and as revealed to him by his God, Glory and Might be to Him. A few of the Companions did not like the Prophet's action and opposed him very strongly, and Umar ibn al-Khattab came and said to him, "Are you not truly the Prophet of Allah?" He answered, “Yes, I am." Umar asked, "Are we not right and our enemy wrong?" The Prophet answered, "Yes." Umar asked, "Why do we then disgrace our religion?" The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "I am the Messenger of Allah and I will never disobey Him and He is my support." Umar asked, "Did you not tell us that we would come to the House of Allah and go around it?" The Prophet answered, "Yes, and did I tell you that we were coming this year?" Umar answered, "No." The Prophet said, "Then you are coming to it and going around it." Umar later went to Abu Bakr and asked him, "O Abu Bakr, is he not truly the Prophet of Allah?" He answered, "Yes." Umar then asked him the same questions he had asked the Messenger of Allah, and Abu Bakr answered him with the same answers and added, "O Umar he is the Messenger of Allah, and he will not disobey his God, Who is his support, so hold on to him." When the Prophet had finished signing the treaty, he said to his Companions "Go and slaughter (sacrifices) and shave your heads." And by Allah one of them stood up until he had said it three times. When nobody obeyed his orders, he went to his quarters, then came out and spoke to no one, and slaughtered a young camel with his own hands, and then asked his barber to shave his head. When the Companions saw all that, they went and slaughtered (sacrifices), and shaved one another, until they nearly killed one another. Could any sensible man accept some people's claims that the Companions, may Allah bless them, always obeyed and implemented the orders of the Messenger of Allah (saw), for these incidents expose their lies, and fall short of what they want! Could any sensible man imagine that such behavior towards the Prophet is an easy or acceptable matter or even an excusable one! Allah, the Almighty, said: “But no! By your God! They do not believe (in reality) until they make you a judge of that which has become a matter of disagreement among them, and then do not and any straightness in their hearts as to what you have decided and submit with entire submission.” (Holy Qur'an 4:65) 1. Sahih, Bukhari, Book of al Shurut, Chapter: Al Shurut fi al Jihad vol 2 p 122
  16. RTS article: Eid al-Adha "Festival of the Sacrifice" Salam. Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, May the Peace and Blessings of Allah (swt) be upon Prophet Muahmmad (saw) and his pure family (a.s). Eid Al-Adha "Festival of the Sacrifice", is celebrated worldwide each year. It marks the end of the annual Hajj to Mecca. In the Islamic lunar calendar, it falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah. It honors the willingness of Prophet Ibraheem (a.s) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (a.s), as an act of submission to God's command, before God then intervened sending his angel Jibraeel (a.s) and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.

  17. This recent two-part research essay/article written by a Western journalist under a pen name caught my attention. Thought I'd share:- First part - Washington's Sunni Myth and the Civil Wars in Syria and Iraq Part two - Washington's Sunni Myth and the Middle East Undone To those who know more than me about post-war Iraq and wartime Syria, how accurate is this author? Is it really true that Sunnis were "oppressed" by Shia death squads after the invasion (if they were, I hope the "victims" were just the ones who enjoyed mutilating and torturing the Shias in Iraq for 20+ years under Saddam)? I would appreciate if the Iraqis and Syrians as well as anyone else on this forum well-versed about the ongoing conflict enlighten me on the accuracy of this article.
  18. Salam guys and thank in advance for helping with this, It is my understanding that the Shia' believe the Prophet SAW had only one daughter (Fatima Az Zuhra)? I'd like to be able to reconcile this point to see what their rationale is. 1. If the Prophet SAW wasn't the father of Ruqayyah, Umm Kulthum, and Zaynab, then who was? 2. If Umm Kulthum, Ruqayyah, Zeinab, were called as Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad and Ruqayyah as bint Muhammad etc., why did not their names/references change like in the case of Zaid ibn Harith, who was formerly known as Zaid ibn Muhammad? As you know, upon revelation the Prophet SAW was instructed that children should retain the names of their biological parents, this would extend to the ladies. 3. What are the dates of marriage between Khadijah RA and our Prophet SAW (were they married 25 years before her death?), dates of birth for the potential daughters of the Prophet SAW, according to Shia' rendition of history? According to Sunni Sources, the marriage of Khadijah RA and the Prophet SAW was in 595 AD. The following are also Sunni Sources: Ruqayyah was born approx. 601 AD, died 624, after/during battle of Badr Umm Kulthum was born approx. 603 AD, did 630 AD Zeinab was born 599 AD, and presumed to also die in 630AD It seems Lady Fatima AZ may or may not have been born in 605, or 615, and died 632 AD. Also, Qasim bin Muhammad, if the shia' believe that he was a son of the Prophet SAW, his birth was 598 AD, and died in 600 or 601 AD. Take note his birth precedes all of his sisters (or half sisters) births and was the first child. Following this narration of history, it would stand to reason that the Prophet SAW did indeed have four daughters under Khadijah RA. Unless the Shia narration of history of these birthdates and deaths are substantially different from the Sunni sources, I'd very much like to learn these. 4. Is the rationale that Zeinab, Ruqayyah, Umm Kulthum aren't Ahlul Bait or daughters of Prophet Muhammad SAW because they were not included in the cloak in Hadith - Ahl al-Kisa? From what I understand, in both Sunni/Shia sources, the cloak includes the Prophet SAW, Imam 'Ali AS, Fatima AZ, Imam Hassan RA & Imam Hussein RA. However, when did that take place?, I think according to Shia' and Sunni sources, it took place in 9th to 10th year of Hirjah which equates to 631 AD... We know Imam Hussein RA was born 626 AD, therefore his birth took place after Ruqayyah already died (per Sunni sources), and therefore could not be included in the cloak by default if she was in fact the daughter of the Prophet SAW. In any event, if the event of the cloak took place in 631AD, Ruqayyah, Zeinab, and Umm Kulthum have already died in 630 AD (per Sunni sources) and therefore could not have been included in the cloak by default. This implies that one cannot argue if whether these 3 individuals were or were not the Prophet's daughters based on the Hadith of the Cloak alone (incident of Mubahala). I'm looking for references, and concise answers, please. @wmehar2
  19. Salaam, Although I'm not a die-hard fan of Yasser Al-Habib, and I know many of you don't like him, he is a good debater and raises excellent points. Here in this video, a salafi sheikh, first swears to one of the killers of Uthman Ibn Afwan, then he apologizes and praises the killer, and Yasser Al Habib responses to that. It's hilarious and phenomenal. I wonder what reply does sunnis has to this video.
  20. (salam) Unfortunately, Sunni side is not much open for Shia muslims. So called hardliner Sunnis call Shias Kafir/Majoosi/Sabai/Jews etc. Even in mainstream Sunnis we do not see much struggle from Sunni side for unity among Ummah (Shia-Sunni Unity). Often we being Shias face an unreasonable demand from Sunni side for unity among Ummah (Shia-Sunni Unity) that "Shias should convert to Sunni for unity". This is like a Wahabi saying to a Brailvi convert to Wahabism if you want unity. One has to accept others with their faith/views for unity. One can not thrust upon his/her views to others. On the other hand major Shia scholars always tried and preached for Shia-Sunni unity. Because this is the only way to defeat imperialists/zionists in the world. There are many Shias who are working against Shia-Sunni unity but fortunately, they did not get good recognition from Shia community.
  21. Hello and I have read how Shia Muslims suffered under Sunni Caliphates such as the Ummayad Dynasty and Abbasid Caliphates and Ottoman. I wanted to know if there are some positive examples in history where Sunni leaders were kind or tolerant to Shias and didn't have them killed.
  22. Assalam O Alaikum, For ballanced and more approperiate explanation regarding major conflicts and disputes between shias and sunnies watch these videos. May Allah guide us to true teachings of Quran and Sunnah. Ameen

The list is never ending continuous slap on the face of the likes of Nasibis like Yasir, Canadian, The fake profiled Ali Raza and their Wahabi likes. Even today, members of such groups as SSP and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi are enlightened by the call of Allah and love for the Ahl-e-Bait. Maybe it is time for you Munafiqs to follow the footsteps of your forefathers and embrace Islam once and for all.
  24. Salaam to everyone. I am a Sunni Hanafi Muslim. I have had discussion with my friends on topics relating to sects in Islam and all, and how we differ in beliefs. I wanted to take the opportunity here and openly ask what beliefs or practices of Sunnis frustrate Shias or not comprehend them ? Thank you.
  25. Assalam O Alaikum, Wa Rehmatullah, Wa Barakatuhu. Respect the difference of opinion if there is no clear indication of shirk or kufr in it.
