  1. You see now in the poisonous Western Dictatorship countries, more and more things that are and should be considered abnormal are becoming normal. Euthanasia is one of them. A hot topic right now is the legalisation of assisted suicide (euthanasia) and when this happens, since the west is trying to destroy any moral values; as time goes by they will increase its use, and broaden its reason for use. For example, the use of euthanasia was for palliative patients, now, its crazily considered to people with a perceived "mental illness", after it will be legal for whatever reason and this is the progressive push for all the corruption in the west from the 'leaders' of bad intentions in this dajjalic system. Victims of this brainwash are told they do not have that long to live, or have the option to kill themselves if they wish. Medicine, or proper care was considered the only option for saving a life or controlling symptoms, never was it to intentionally murder someone. Patients that know someone cares about them (statistically) do not chose this option in legalised countries. However, others (since this society is so disconnected) have chosen it since being talked into it in some countries where they know they can do it, because a person is considered a "pain" and money waster for the health department #ResourcesOverHumanity. Is this what life is? The value of life is changing in the western definition, and it is time we know within ourselves the Islamic definition and be lanterns of guidance in such dark times. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِنْ نَسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۚ أَنْتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ "Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people." صدق الله العلي العظيم .الإمامُ الصّادقُ عليه السلام : مَن قَتَلَ نفسَه مُتَعمِّداً فهُو في نارِ جَهنَّمَ خالِداً فيها Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'Whoever intentionally kills himself will dwell in the Hellfire forever.' كتاب من لا يحضره الفقيه : 4 / 95 / 5163 al-Faqih, v. 4, p. 95, no. 5163 {Let's see, first homosexuality becoming legal, bad values being common within the youth, are all corrupt agendas for the western dictator governments. Think about it and be against it. As there was someone that once said, if you are not for it, nor with it, you are with it to some extent.] اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد وعجل فرجهم
  2. Salaam'Alaikum and a very sincere special thank you to those who read and offer their opinion/effort insight. This is gonna sound nuts and all I care about is truth and honest opinions and research here because I myself do not know. While on the forums here fact checking a Hadith from Sahih, I chanced upon these Sunni / Hadith Collections: Volume 9, Book 89, Number 301: Narrated Zaid bin Thabit: Abu Bakr sent for me owing to the large number of casualties in the battle of Al-Yamama, while 'Umar was sitting with him. Abu Bakr said (to me), 'Umar has come to my and said, 'A great number of Qaris of the Holy Quran were killed on the day of the battle of Al-Yamama, and I am afraid that the casualties among the Qaris of the Quran may increase on other battle-fields whereby a large part of the Quran may be lost. Therefore I consider it advisable that you (Abu Bakr) should have the Qur'an collected.' I said, 'How dare I do something which Allah's Apostle did not do?' 'Umar said, By Allah, it is something beneficial.' 'Umar kept on pressing me for that till Allah opened my chest for that for which He had opened the chest of 'Umar and I had in that matter, the same opinion as 'Umar had." Abu Bakr then said to me (Zaid), "You are a wise young man and we do not have any suspicion about you, and you used to write the Divine Inspiration for Allah's Apostle. So you should search for the fragmentary scripts of the Quran and collect it (in one Book)." Zaid further said: By Allah, if Abu Bakr had ordered me to shift a mountain among the mountains from one place to another it would not have been heavier for me than this ordering me to collect the Qur'an. Then I said (to 'Umar and Abu Bakr), "How can you do something which Allah's Apostle did not do?" Abu Bakr said, "By Allah, it is something beneficial." Zaid added: So he (Abu Bakr) kept on pressing me for that until Allah opened my chest for that for which He had opened the chests of Abu Bakr and 'Umar, and I had in that matter, the same opinion as theirs. So I started compiling the Quran by collecting it from the leafless stalks of the date-palm tree and from the pieces of leather and hides and from the stones, and from the chests of men (who had memorized the Quran). I found the last verses of Sirat-at-Tauba: ("Verily there has come unto you an Apostle (Muhammad) from amongst yourselves--' (9.128-129) ) from Khuzaima or Abi Khuzaima and I added to it the rest of the Sura. The manuscripts of the Quran remained with Abu Bakr till Allah took him unto Him. Then it remained with 'Umar till Allah took him unto Him, and then with Hafsa bint 'Umar. Volume 6, Book 61, Number 509: Narrated Zaid bin Thabit: Abu Bakr As-Siddiq sent for me when the people! of Yamama had been killed (i.e., a number of the Prophet's Companions who fought against Musailama). (I went to him) and found 'Umar bin Al-Khattab sitting with him. Abu Bakr then said (to me), "Umar has come to me and said: "Casualties were heavy among the Qurra' of the! Qur'an (i.e. those who knew the Quran by heart) on the day of the Battle of Yalmama, and I am afraid that more heavy casualties may take place among the Qurra' on other battlefields, whereby a large part of the Qur'an may be lost. Therefore I suggest, you (Abu Bakr) order that the Qur'an be collected." I said to 'Umar, "How can you do something which Allah's Apostle did not do?" 'Umar said, "By Allah, that is a good project. "Umar kept on urging me to accept his proposal till Allah opened my chest for it and I began to realize the good in the idea which 'Umar had realized." Then Abu Bakr said (to me). 'You are a wise young man and we do not have any suspicion about you, and you used to write the Divine Inspiration for Allah's Apostle. So you should search for (the fragmentary scripts of) the Qur'an and collect it in one book)." By Allah If they had ordered me to shift one of the mountains, it would not have been heavier for me than this ordering me to collect the Qur'an. Then I said to Abu Bakr, "How will you do something which Allah's Apostle did not do?" Abu Bakr replied, "By Allah, it is a good project." Abu Bakr kept on urging me to accept his idea until Allah opened my chest for what He had opened the chests of Abu Bakr and 'Umar. So I started looking for the Qur'an and collecting it from (what was written on) palmed stalks, thin white stones and also from the men who knew it by heart, till I found the last Verse of Surat At-Tauba (Repentance) with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari, and I did not find it with anybody other than him. The Verse is: 'Verily there has come unto you an Apostle (Muhammad) from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty..(till the end of Surat-Baraa' (At-Tauba) (9.128-129) Then the complete manuscripts (copy) of the Qur'an remained with Abu Bakr till he died, then with 'Umar till the end of his life, and then with Hafsa, the daughter of 'Umar. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Then I vaguely remember reading something in the past that I vaguely remember dismissing as garbage/made up attention seeking stuff that resembles this stuff. Are any of you familiar or aware of the submitters or Rashad Khalifa? The guy who went bananas saying he was some prophet and sounded/appeared delusional, but made excellent observations about the Quranic link with the number 19 that appeared to be align???? I read and found out today that the same guy, said the only two verses in the Qu'ran that didn't match up with the flow 19 by process of computational elimination/algorithmic, were Verses 9.128-129.. the VERY same ones referenced in the above Sahih Hadith's. AM I CRAZY? Is this a set up? IS there anyway to verify this stuff? The same surah of the Quran is also the very one that we all know doesn't begin with Bismillah ... hence for some reason it doesn't begin in the name of God, .. IS THAT NUTS or am I crazy???!? Is that too much of a coincidence??? A link summarizing the details thing: http://www.quranalone.com/the-quran/appendices/appendix-24.php Here's one site: http://www.19miracle.org/two-false-verses-removed-from-the-quran/ and the same thing : http://masjidtucson.org/quran/appendices/appendix24.html A site praising him (while condemning his personal claims) for his translation accuracy: http://www.answering-christianity.com/why_do_i_use_rk.htm Normally I'm not one to dismiss everything that a man says and try to hear them out, as there can always be a truth hidden somewhere. But this Rashad Khalifa guy claimed some crazy stuff, such that he was a prophet/messenger (until he was stabbed at a mosque randomly).... so I kinda just shrugged and kept his profile/details in the back of my mind until I came across these Hadith. Please someone tell me if I'm drawing too much meaning to this and this is a coincidence. Just earlier someone in the forums mentioned this Surah was one of the ones where it seems meccan/medinan verses were also mixed up. @goldenhawk I'm a firm believer of Verse 15:9, and perhaps combining this hadith, and this man's mathematical analysis to single out those same two verses referenced in those surahs are proof of that 15:9 . The verse promising us the Quran is perfectly maintained. The crazy thing is, those two verses, seem completely (God forgive me if I'm wrong) redundant and... forgive me for saying this - not taking away any significant (not that i can recognize right away from my limited wisdom of the Quran) in terms of meaning or change if they were removed... sort of like Placebo verses. I know I bother you guys alot, but I respect your knowledge and backgrounds to hear your opinions: @shiaman14 @Haimi @Gaius I. Caesar @IbnSina I for sure don't believe this quack guy was claiming to be a prophet as that contradicts the Quran itself that hes trying to "fix"..... I think he was onto something and it led him to a dangerous road becoming fixated on it ultimately leading to his demise. He probably tried to find justification for his name or something and whatever, but other than that.. he's produced something appearing to be incredible.
  3. I dunno if you guys have been watching alternative news about the farce of a Democratic National Convention, but some serious underhanded tactics have been employed by the establishment against Bernie Sanders supporters. There have been literally riots outside the convention center:- How cute that after Debbie Schultz resigns, she's immediately hired by Hillary LOL Even Bernie Sanders was booed when he endorsed Hillary. America, a country that prides itself so much on freedom and democracy is witnessing serious blatant election fraud and that majority can't even see it due to MSM propaganda. It gets even better worse. The following video shows reserved seats for actors and a white noise machine right next to the bernie section https://vid.me/4tYB For more footage showing the chaos and mayhem outside the convention, see here http://therightscoop.com/holy-crap-this-was-the-scene-last-night-at-the-dnc/ A Bernie delegate explains what the scene was like inside, how the Democrats are using paid ‘seat fillers’ to make the convention look more unified. (video is taken from the link above) Hey 'Muricans! Enjoying your freedom yet?
  4. Salam everyone. Have you guys seen this? http://panamapapers.sueddeutsche.de/articles/56febff0a1bb8d3c3495adf4/ Its a 2.6 TB of data, comprising of how international companies and influential people evaded taxation in their own countries by off-shore companies. Kindly give me input on this if anyone has more information. Pretty scary to see the numbers on the report.
  5. Bismillah il rahman il raheem Salaam brothers and sisters, honestly I feel like today wasn't a bad day however it was my own attitude towards it which made it seem bad, well that and how I prayed a little bit late. So, recently a lot of my life has been encircled around negativity and grumbling about having too much stress and too much work. This has piled up on me emotionally and spiritually, depending on how you define spiritually of course. The weird thing here is that last semester I had much more work and more to worry about, but it didn't feel like it and I enjoyed life and constantly prayed on time. This negativity from me has been spreading to those around me, I guess I'm emanating a pessimistic vibe which people obviously have a distaste towards. However, through much thought and consideration (LOL not really) I've come to a conclusion about this. As Muslims, its also an obligation for us to spread positive character and attitude, prophet Jacob said “I only complain of my grief and sorrow to Allah" (12:86). Our prophets set the examples that which we must follow, and prophet Jacob even when his son was lost and not known about for years he still remained vigilant and strong internally. Even the atmosphere at my school it is depressing for a Muslim and everywhere you look there is sin and kufr. I guess this is partly what drags me down, noticing everyone having fun while I must control myself and not sin. I often find myself having to take a minute to detach from the atmosphere to collect my thoughts and remember the cause of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. We mustn't forget though, we have the greatest of gifts which is being rightly guided to ISLAM and especially the SHIA. Life is what you make it out to be, the reason why optimists have the most enjoyable lives is because they view life in the best possible way. For us to be happy, we must really be happy with our lives internally, and one the best ways to do so if just pray on time, read Quran, and do dua. Sorry I made this so long and agonizing for you guys to read, but I really felt the need to help someone else's life feel better (which I'm not too sure my writing did) considering that I've just been making everyone feel bad around me. Honestly today I wasted all my time that I could have been studying with because of this negativity, but I'm glad I went through this as I learned a good lesson (and got to post something on shiachat about it :3). Hopefully I put an end to this and raise my mood and in doing so raise the mood of others around me. Thanks for listening jazakumullahu be khair.
  6. What do you guys think about this ? Even if he controls 1billion dollars, is this right ? Part 1: A Reuters investigation details a key to the supreme leader’s power: a little-known organization created to help the poor that morphed into a business juggernaut worth tens of billions of dollars. The 82-year-old Iranian woman keeps the documents that upended her life in an old suitcase near her bed. She removes them carefully and peers at the tiny Persian script. There's the court order authorizing the takeover of her children's three Tehran apartments in a multi-story building the family had owned for years. There's the letter announcing the sale of one of the units. And there's the notice demanding she pay rent on her own apartment on the top floor. Pari Vahdat-e-Hagh ultimately lost her property. It was taken by an organization that is controlled by the most powerful man in Iran: Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. She now lives alone in a cramped, three-room apartment in Europe, thousands of miles from Tehran. The Persian name of the organization that hounded her for years is "Setad Ejraiye Farmane Hazrate Emam" – Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam. The name refers to an edict signed by the Islamic Republic's first leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, shortly before his death in 1989. His order spawned a new entity to manage and sell properties abandoned in the chaotic years after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Setad has become one of the most powerful organizations in Iran, though many Iranians, and the wider world, know very little about it. In the past six years, it has morphed into a business juggernaut that now holds stakes in nearly every sector of Iranian industry, including finance, oil, telecommunications, the production of birth-control pills and even ostrich farming. The organization's total worth is difficult to pinpoint because of the secrecy of its accounts. But Setad's holdings of real estate, corporate stakes and other assets total about $95 billion, Reuters has calculated. That estimate is based on an analysis of statements by Setad officials, data from the Tehran Stock Exchange and company websites, and information from the U.S. Treasury Department. Just one person controls that economic empire – Khamenei. As Iran's top cleric, he has the final say on all governmental matters. His purview includes his nation's controversial nuclear program, which was the subject of intense negotiations between Iranian and international diplomats in Geneva that ended Sunday without an agreement. It is Khamenei who will set Iran's course in the nuclear talks and other recent efforts by the new president, Hassan Rouhani, to improve relations with Washington. Related Item Minority report: Why Baha’is face persecution in Iran The supreme leader's acolytes praise his spartan lifestyle, and point to his modest wardrobe and a threadbare carpet in his Tehran home. Reuters found no evidence that Khamenei is tapping Setad to enrich himself. But Setad has empowered him. Through Setad, Khamenei has at his disposal financial resources whose value rivals the holdings of the shah, the Western-backed monarch who was overthrown in 1979. How Setad came into those assets also mirrors how the deposed monarchy obtained much of its fortune - by confiscating real estate. A six-month Reuters investigation has found that Setad built its empire on the systematic seizure of thousands of properties belonging to ordinary Iranians: members of religious minorities like Vahdat-e-Hagh, who is Baha'i, as well as Shi'ite Muslims, business people and Iranians living abroad. Setad has amassed a giant portfolio of real estate by claiming in Iranian courts, sometimes falsely, that the properties are abandoned. The organization now holds a court-ordered monopoly on taking property in the name of the supreme leader, and regularly sells the seized properties at auction or seeks to extract payments from the original owners. The supreme leader also oversaw the creation of a body of legal rulings and executive orders that enabled and safeguarded Setad's asset acquisitions. "No supervisory organization can question its property," said Naghi Mahmoudi, an Iranian lawyer who left Iran in 2010 and now lives in Germany. Khamenei's grip on Iran's politics and its military forces has been apparent for years. The investigation into Setad shows that there is a third dimension to his power: economic might. The revenue stream generated by Setad helps explain why Khamenei has not only held on for 24 years but also in some ways has more control than even his revered predecessor. Setad gives him the financial means to operate independently of parliament and the national budget, insulating him from Iran's messy factional infighting. Washington has acknowledged Setad's importance. In June, the Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Setad and some of its corporate holdings, calling the organization "a massive network of front companies hiding assets on behalf of … Iran's leadership." The companies generate billions of dollars in revenue a year, the department stated, but it did not offer a detailed accounting. The Iranian president's office and the foreign ministry didn't respond to requests for comment. Iran's embassy in the United Arab Emirates issued a statement calling Reuters' findings "scattered and disparate" and said that "none has any basis." It didn't elaborate. Setad's director general of public relations, Hamid Vaezi, said by email in response to a detailed description of this series that the information presented is "far from realities and is not correct." He didn't go into specifics. In a subsequent message, he said Setad disputes the Treasury's allegations and is "in the process of retaining U.S. counsel to address this matter." He added: "This communication puts you on notice that any action by your organization could prejudice our dispute in the United States and harm our position for which we hold you responsible." When Khomeini, the first supreme leader, set in motion the creation of Setad, it was only supposed to manage and sell properties "without owners" and direct much of the proceeds to charity. Setad was to use the funds to assist war veterans, war widows "and the downtrodden." According to one of its co-founders, Setad was to operate for no more than two years. Setad has built schools, roads and health clinics, and provided electricity and water in rural and impoverished areas. It has assisted entrepreneurs in development projects. But philanthropy is just a small part of Setad's overall operations. Under Khamenei's control, Setad began acquiring property for itself, and kept much of the funds rather than simply redistributing them. With those revenues, the organization also helps to fund the ultimate seat of power in Iran, the Beite Rahbar, or Leader's House, according to a former Setad employee and other people familiar with the matter. The first supreme leader, Khomeini, had a small staff. To run the country today, Khamenei employs about 500 people in his administrative offices, many recruited from the military and security services. A complete picture of Setad's spending and income isn't possible. Its books are off limits even to Iran's legislative branch. In 2008, the Iranian Parliament voted to prohibit itself from monitoring organizations that the supreme leader controls, except with his permission. But Reuters has put together the fullest account yet of the organization's holdings. They include:
  7. all too common typical Majlis Al'aa (badr organization) corruption , Iraqi NEPOTISM at its finest, all the ministers and their spoiled sons in power. poverty-stricken iraqis on the streets begging and these fools playing with the country's wealth. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (Reuters) - A passenger plane flying from Lebanon to Iraq on Thursday turned back after the Iraqi transport minister's son missed the flight and phoned Baghdad to stop the aircraft from landing, Middle East Airlines (MEA) said. Marwan Salha, acting chairman of MEA, told Reuters the flight, scheduled to leave at 1240, had been delayed for six minutes while MEA staff looked for Mahdi al-Amiri, son of Hadi al-Amiri, and his friend in the business lounge. "We made the necessary announcements and the last calls," he said. "The plane took off but one of the passengers turned out to be the son of the minister of Iraq." Salha said that when Amiri arrived at the gate he was angry and said: "I will not allow the plane to land in Baghdad." Twenty-one minutes into the flight, the Baghdad airport station manager called MEA operations to tell them there was no clearance to land, Salha said. The plane then returned to Beirut and the passengers disembarked. "It's very disturbing because this is pure nepotism," Salha said, adding that he hoped to resume flights to Iraq on Friday but that there would not be another flight on Thursday. Transport Minister Hadi al-Amiri is head of the Badr Organisation, once an armed Shi'ite militia, and a political ally of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. Many Iraqis believe that relatives of elected officials and leaders of political parties act as if they are above the law. Iraq's Transport Ministry confirmed the airliner had been turned around but said this was due to airport cleaning and that the minister's son had not been due to be a passenger on it. Kareem al-Nuri, the transport minister's media adviser, said: "There were cleaning operations in the airport and specific measures were taken. We asked all flights not to land in Baghdad airport after 9 a.m. but this flight arrived after this time, so we asked it to turn back. "This information (about the minister's son) is not true and the minister is not accepting such behavior. The minister's son was not scheduled to take that flight at all." An official at Baghdad airport, who asked not to be named, said air traffic was normal, with 30 flights landing on Thursday. The only one turned around was the one from Beirut. Iraqis mocked Amiri and his son on social media as news of the incident spread. A girl named Diana wrote: "Sounds like Uday and his father rose from the grave", a reference to the late Saddam Hussein and his son Uday, known for arbitrary behavior.

  8. Romário, a World Cup Champion, Is Now a World Cup Dissenter on the other hand some say against Romario: here is the whole report: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/16/sports/soccer/romario-a-world-cup-champion-is-now-a-world-cup-dissenter.html?pagewanted=1&adxnnlx=1381911955-xyKyT80dD8gqEH8H/1BpVg
  9. ÈÓã Çááå ÇáÑÍãä ÇáÑÍíã My brother and sisters in faith and creation, ÇáÓáÇã Úáíßã The hatred of Amir al-Mu'minin 'Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) and his followers is something notorious. The curious amongst us has asked about this matter and answers has been provided. In a few words, it is due to the corrupt narration intervened in the Sunni narrations by Jewish 'scholars*'. Allah says: 'Surely You will find the most hostile of all people towards the faithful to be the Jews and the polytheists...' - [al-Ma'idah, 5:82] Note: The faithful refers to Amir al-Mu'minin and his followers. Nevertheless, I am going to specify this topic about the ablution of the Sunni's and the Jews, especially those who prevailed at the time of Solomon (as). 'And to David We gave Solomon -- what an excellent servant! Indeed he was a penitent [soul]. When one evening there were displayed before him prancing steeds, he said, 'Indeed I have preferred the love of [worldly] niceties to the remembrance of my Lord until [the sun] disappeared behind the [night's] veil.' Bring it1 back for me!' Then he [and the others] began to stroke their legs and necks.' - [sad, 38:30-33] 1 Or 'them'. The pronoun may be taken as referring to the sun or to the horses. However, most exegetes have taken it as referring to the sun and its setting. While Solomon was engaged in viewing the horses, the sun set, and time of the afternoon prayer (supererogatory or obligatory) elapsed. According to a tradition narrated from al-Imam al-Sadiq (pbuh), when Solomon noticed that the sun had set, he called out to the angels to bring it back so that he could offer the afternoon prayer. Also, according to this tradition, the wiping of legs and necks mentioned in the verse refers to the performance of ablution (wudu') before the prayer by Solomon and his men as prescribed in their Law. The people of intellect can clearly see a distinct similarities between the ablution performed by the Sunnis and by the people of Solomon, the Jews. *Hired by the so-called caliphate, before Amir al-Mu'minin 'Ali ibn Abi Talib (pbuh). Note: The translation and the exegete of the verse(s) is an extract from the phrase-by-phrase English translation by 'Ali Quli Qara'i.
  10. Parliament has politely criticized the IRI Government's 2012/13 budget, submitted two months late, due to the "unrealistic" oil revenue figures. Iran's production has fallen by 109 million barrels in the first two months of 2012. This decline of 1.8 million barrels per day would be a decline of almost half in Iranian output. meanwhile, Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi has warned that "inflation is unbearable" and "the Government should look for solutions". http://www.ilna.ir/newsText.aspx?ID=248885
