  1. http://www.femaleilluminati.com/uploads/3/1/3/5/31352851/islamflag_orig.png The insignia associated with the Islamic religion and Moslem countries is purely female. Mary Magdalene is known in occult circles as the "Lady of the Crescents." The crescent represents Venus, and the white star denotes Venus as the famous "Morning Star" (the esoteric Lucifer or Shekinah). The color green also pertains to the goddess. Allah was originally based on Allat, a goddess. The Kaaba at Mecca is actually her shrine. As we'll see in the following articles, the Templars (and Shriners) are the brain behind the rise of Islamic extremism, more correctly of current the threat of Islamo-Communism. Many of the agitators from the Middle East where trained and educated in the West. (Here for more...)
  2. It is interesting to note that, there is a 'DUA OF THE DAY,' HADITH OF THE DAY', but, there is no 'VERSE OF THE DAY' IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE AN Islamic FORUM? So in what HADITH AFTER THIS will they believe? 77-50
  3. Salaams I thought I'd share this lecture by Dr. Chris Hewer (A Christian) on Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) especially for this month of Muharram, which I feel respects Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) and his marytrdom. He has other lectures of course, but this talk focuses more on the aspect of martyrdom between the faiths that serve to broaden understanding. I thought this would be helpful for those who identify as Christians to be able to relate.
  4. Foreward I dedicate this short and simple post to all the buddhists in search of answers and that have a open mind in questioning their religion. Introduction Buddhism is a relatively large religion in East asia and Sri lanka.there are millions of estimated western Buddhists.Buddhism presents itself as a logical religion in contradiction to superstitious Theism.Buddhism rejects Theism as coherent.in this book,I want to present the logical case against basic buddhist philosophy and present the philosophical,rational and Scientific case for Theism. it is not meant to offend anyone's religious sensibilities.I am a former buddhist and understand its appeal.but I do not believe it is the truth. What Buddhist Philosophies teach and their refutations. 1.Dependant origination Dependant origination is the dharma.Buddha said that' dependant origination is the dhamma'.the entirety of Buddhist philosophy is tied into dependant origination and logically is connected to it.if it falls,all of Buddhism falls.So I have chosen to examine this closely first. Dependant origination states that a thing does not come into being except being dependant on something else,infinitely.it is based on one necassery concept: True Arising.wich means exnihilo. Absolute Dependant origination is the idea,in contradiction to Theism that all things are dependantely risen rather then a creation being merely contigent on a higher power (weaker dependant origination).in this case,higher power would be free from being dependently originated so it isn't 'Absolute' . The first way to refute dependant arising,is to refute exnihilo creation.exnihilo creation cannot be an actual thing because nothing,a true nothing produces nothing. all arisings outside a omnipotent creator could be termed as exnihilo.something cannot concretely arise from itself,other unless that other were omnipotent with infinite power in qualitativeness,both or neither.Ju mipham the Tibetan scholar recognized this fact 1 1.Four Great Logical Arguments of the Middle Way by Mipham Rinpoche and Khenpo Nüden 2.Shunyata Shunyata or 'emptiness empty of itself' is a Mahayana Buddhist concept that means that there is no ground of being and nothing can thus be said to be permanent.Nagarjuna the eminent Buddhist Philosopher and the founder of this concept said that all arisings and cessations were like a Hare's horn in his Mulamadhyamakakarika .but if all Arisings and cessations are like a hare's horn or son of a barren woman,then there must exist either something permanent or pervasive nothingness! The fact that Nagarjuna did not come to this logical conclusion despite being very bright is because he was a buddhist and believed in dependant origination.so he had to come to the logical conclusion of dependant arising wich is impermanence and groundlessness!But this concept simply cannot be true.Nagarjuna refuted his own philosophy by likening arising as the horn of a hare. 3.Kshanabhangavada Kshanabhangavada is a concept in all buddhist philosophies except the recent pali school,wich is radical momentariness.a individual atom or mind arises and ceases in an instant.nothing is permanent.a atom is replaced by another atom and a mind of an individual is replaced by a mind within less than a second.But if this were true,how could things arise?they would arise out of nothing!once the atom or mind has perished,a new one springs up to take its place.but how can this be possible?it cannot.its an absurd concept.like dependant arising,buddhists basically Believed that things pop up out of nothing! 4.Meditation Meditation is a practice within buddhism to find enlightenment.it calms the mind,relieves stress and provides clarity.so they say.but there is also a dark side of meditation.a Recent major study says that 1/4 of advanced regular meditators experience unwanted and negative side effects like terror,sadness,doubt and depressive symptoms.2 2 .https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6508707/ Nibbana/Nirvana Nirvana is the concept of liberation from the cycle of birth and death in Buddhism.in Theravada,this is basically extinction because it is a breaking up of the mental aggregates at the time of death of a Buddha or Arahant.in Mahayana,there is no mind or sensation anymore according to the Sandhirmocana Sutra and a Buddha acts based on past volition and merit(despite having no alayavijnana or mindstream to hold that past karma or past volition!).so it is basically extinction aswell.this is not desirable to most people if they knew what this was. the philosophical proof against Shunyata Philosophy has also made proofs against Buddhist shunyata(where a unconditioned reality that is concrete cannot exist) There Can Only Be Two Types of Concrete Realities: 1.Conditioned Reality: Any reality that depends on something for its existence. For example, a Cow depends on its organs, the organs depend on cells, the cells depend on molecules, which depend on atoms,wich depend on electrons,wich depend on Quarks and so forth. This dependence is simultaneous at every moment the conditioned reality exists. 2.Unconditioned Reality: Any reality that is self-sufficient, i.e. does not depend on anything else for its existence. This is what is called'(God). any conditioned reality depends upon another reality in order to exist by definition. Any conditioned Concrete reality, must depend upon: a finite number of conditioned realities alone or an infinite number of conditioned realities alone or a finite number of conditioned realities and at least one unconditioned reality A conditioned reality cannot be caused by a finite series of conditioned realities: If there is a linear series of conditioned Dharma, what would the first one depend on? Since it must depend on something, and there is nothing before it, the whole chain ceases to exist. Thus a linear chain of conditioned realities cannot exist. Additionally, a circular finite chain of conditioned realities could not exist either. This would simply result in each conditioned reality fulfilling their own conditions, which is against the definition of a conditioned Dharma. Conditioned realities cannot exist in an infinite Series either. A very large unlimited of number conditioned realities cannot exist,. As the number of conditioned realities in a series increases, the result continues to be non-existence. Continuously adding to the end of the chain would never allow for the conditions of existence to be satisfied, thus the entire infinite chain of conditioned Dharmas would never have its conditions fulfilled. If an infinite (I am granting Buddhists the notion that a actual Infinite can exist in quantity of concrete things for the sake of argument,I do not Believe this.Set theory does not help because its applicable only to abstractions)series of conditioned realities could exist on its own, the complete set of infinite conditioned reality would be an unconditioned reality. However, this is impossible because an unconditioned dharma cannot depend upon an aggregate of conditioned realities . if this were the case, it would be conditioned. Therefore, a set of infinite conditioned realities is itself a conditioned reality, and fails to exist on its own. Since any model made up entirely of conditioned realities can never have their conditions fulfilled, every conditioned reality must be caused by a series of realities that ends (or begins its ontological Series) with an unconditioned concrete reality. if the series of conditioned realities regresses ad infinitum without an unconditioned reality the series itself would be equivalent to nothing. if the series regresses infinitely to more and more fundamental conditions that have the same existential status as the aforementioned conditions, then the search for the fulfillment of conditions would go on endlessly. But if the search for the fulfillment of conditions would go on endlessly, then every hypothetical conditioned reality in the series would never have its conditions fulfilled and thus would never come into existence. No matter where we’re at in the series we’ll always come to a conditioned reality that is nonexistent because it is existentially dependent upon other nonexistent conditioned realities. So a unconditioned reality must exist. this reality must also be absolute pure being and unique,at least one unconditioned reality must exist in all of reality. I believe and will demonstrate based on Father Robert Spitzer's new arguments for the existance of God that this reality is what is absolutely unique, immutable, immaterial, eternal, perfect, personal, all-powerful, etc. The Reason it must be absolute pure existance is because the realities of our experience are restricted to particular modes of existance. They have distinguishing and diversifying principles that makes them this instead of that. These diversifying principles constitute what philosophers call restrictions or boundaries. These diversifying principles are Spatial,Temporal or by way of being.such restrictions cause exclusion between existents and make for incompatible states of being.even though two existents may exist in the same way , they still can be separated from one another due to Temporal or spatial restrictions.Basically,restrictions (or boundaries) exclude and make for incompatibility.the less exclusive and more compatible a thing is with other realities, the fewer restrictions it has to limit its mode of being (less boundaries)—that is to say the simpler it is.if the unconditioned reality was restricted in its mode of existence by matter, then it would be restricted by a spatial restriction since all matter has extension in space – it would exist here instead of there. Now, such an intrinsic restriction would allow for a real or really possible incompatible state of being that would be excluded from it. But recall that the unconditioned reality cannot have any real or really possible incompatible states of being on the same level of simplicity that would be excluded from it less we end up with an intrinsic contradiction. Therefore, the unconditioned reality cannot be restricted in its mode of existence by a spatial restriction. And if the unconditioned reality cannot be restricted by a spatial restriction, then it cannot be restricted by matter. In other words, it must be immaterial. 12 links and the aggregates In Buddhism there are 12 links of dependant arising wich explain how the aggregate of the person is apparently formed.they are as follows(From Wikipedia):Ignorance-volitional impulses-sensual consciousness-sense objects-Six fold sense bases-contact-sensation-thirst or craving-attachment or clinging-becoming-birth-aging ,death etc these links however explain an apparent why of aggregation but now a How.the mental factors and atoms cannot aggregate themselves.if the atoms for example aggregated by nature,there could be no release or dissolution.if they repelled by nature,there could be no joining.it follows that they are neutral.since they are neutral,we must explain how they come together.and the most parsimonious explanation is a personal creator.
  5. , inshAllah for the sake of this month of Muharram, I will be sharing lectures I enjoyed watching many many years ago. I am sure there are people looking for lectures to watch on God, Islam, and Faith. I will try my best to post one every single day. Yes I love old lectures of Hassanain Rajabali. They are timeless and will always renergize and resonate with me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJyoJjpm1UY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8H-ZjbnC4U https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mO4zF0PNdTo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRtpPOpHwDU
  6. Hello everyone, I am currently researching about Islam and looking into it, I am currently trying to decide Islam or Christianity. In the book Al-Ihtijaj by Al-Tabarsi and the book "Uyoon Akhbar Al-Ridha" by Shaikh Al-Saduq: The Imam (a.s.) said, “What is your opinion of John al-Daylami?” The Catholic Archbishop said, “Bravo! Bravo!” You have mentioned the person loved the most by the Messiah.” The Imam (a.s.) said, “Then I ask you to swear to and tell me whether or not the Bible says that John says, ‘The Messiah has informed me of the religion of Muhammad, the Arab, and has given me the glad tidings about him who will be (a Prophet) after him. Therefore, I gave the glad tidings of him to the disciples and they believed in him.’” My questions concerning this are as follows: - John Of Daylam was a Persian Saint who lived in the 6th century, how could Jesus say such a thing to him?! - The Bible of which the Catholicos was reading (to my limited knowledge) is the Pe[Edited Out]ta, I can't find this quote anywhere in the Pe[Edited Out]ta!
  7. guys, i am sort of back, i know it took soo long from me to get back onto shiachat. but I really needed it, and soo i decided to get offline on whole sociol media including whatsapp etc.. i was only available for some people. i hope you all dont get mad for my really late reply !! i had so many topics into my head but infortunetally i worked smart (not) and forgot to write them into my notes and later on after my burn out i forgot lots of them... i think i will still not be fully available on shiachat but i am trying to bring the topics as promised back to live that is about imam mahdi,pre-advent,qiyamat e sughra/kubra etc.. for now i got this topic into my head, and i think its an important one to discuss it!!! ----------- As we all have start to see it, lots of young people are trying to become religious scholars,to replace the older merjaa's when they will be gone. There are same people who say trough narations that imam mahdi will fight even the shias when he will come. Some say its sahih and some neglect that idea. The ones who belief lots fake sholars will show up before the advent claim that they will get into huge disagreemant until they will say towards the imam the following :"go back to where you came from we dont need youre imamate" this is quit shocking to read. will imam al mahdi will get a hard time also becuase of the soo called shias(scholars) or are these narations corrupted? btw same story goes with sayeds, that lots of them will turn against imam mahdi (aj) what does ahlalbayt say about the return of imam mahdi aj?? there are narrations when in fact say that imam Mahdi aj will have a really hard time before he will establish his government. its even mentioned he will have it twice as hard as how prophet Muhammed (sawa) himself had.. becuase the difference between the two is that our imam will already have muslims against him..while prophet muhammed (sawa) brought islam to the world and not even 1 muslim could get into disagreement with him. ---------- guys, feel free to get back into the topics about imam Mahdi (aj) ,lets make the comment section blow up. may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) make us amongst his soldiers
  8. So recently I have been out with my sunni (hanbali) friend alot and we usually talk about islam a lot as I am part of the shia (jafari) fiqh, and he keeps telling me that if we have a mosque near our house we need to go there everytime we hear the azan and we cannot pray at home unless we have a valid excuse and I searched everywhere for this topic and could not find any answers. Could someone confirm this information?
  9. Inna Lillahe wa Inna Ilaihe Rajeoon Need to discuss about the personality as I have heard very less about him? @Ashvazdanghe @Hameedeh
  10. (salam) What exactly is/are the area/s of friction between Islam and Marxism/Communism that the later was so fiercely opposed and countered?
  11. It seemed in the 2010s during the Obama adminstration that Islam was being more widely accepted and promoted by films, television, media ect and even in popular culture, alot of people became more aware and started learning even getting intrest in islam. Was it because of TV Shows like Etrugul and movies like the Liasion abut and ottoman general, also school curriculemstarted teaching it. what do you all think?
  12. Hope all of you have watched the movie Mukhtar made in Iran which is in 40 episodes. (English subtitles and Arabic & Urdu dubbed versions are available on Youtube). I'm watching it now with a bunch of others, all I can say - the movie imprints on your mind. We all have seen various positive changes coming in our lives by watching the movie. We are preparing a list of lessons learned as we are watching the movie which I'll post here. We are still not done with all the episodes yet. I highly recommend to watch it if you want to prepare yourself for the Last Imam (atf) and to have a better understanding on how to counter various tricks of wicked Imperialists. Allah bless all those actors, directors, financiers, and whoever helped in making the movie.
  13. I was wondering about the process of burying someone, like right from the moment a person's soul leaves their body, what happens next to said body? Is it just buried right then and there? Are there steps and procedures before the burial? How is the family informed? And how long after they are informed is the burial carried out? How long can a body stay before being buried? - I'd like to know the Islamic process and answers to this if possible. Thank you
  14. Salam Alaykom, I've been a Twitter user myself for a very long time and honestly i don't think that i have ever come across a more toxic platform. There is so much division amongst members of society and religious sects on it. There are countless arguments on a daily basis amongst sects and other groups. At first i thought it due to Twitter's young users however this isn't the case, you get many full grown adults arguing on a daily basis too. It's as if they feed off it. What's your take on this? Do you share the same opinion?
  15. I heard and seen muslims pryingat the faults of others and saying "their not muslims becaue they dont have right namz" or their ignorant of the holy quran so its ok to backbite them, and even non musllims say their not muslim!! what!! What do Shias have to say about this, arent we supposeto help thembetter islam?
  16. I am asking this question since the purpose of life for a Muslim is Worshiping Allah.
  17. I am trying to become religious, but I manage for a couple of days and then fail, by missing a salah. I need some advice. I have bought an English translation of the Quran which I am reading.
  18. Someone told me i caught hell with the non muslims and im going to cachhell with muslims now!! What does this mean? Should i worry, i think it means not get any where with anyone, can some on clarify this meaning? cause they said i caught hell with their womenand my city!!
  19. Asalamalikum, I know this isn't a therapy website, but I just want to know if this happens to anyone else? I have these weird thoughts/voices in my head that are not nice. I don't like them, and sometimes I feel suicidal and I roll up in a ball and cry. I don't like to explain what exactly happens inside my head because I don't like thinking about. But basically it's nothing nasty or dirty. It's all about God and other religious stuff. Just imagine literally hearing the Shaytan talking to you, and telling you bad stuff about God..and etc.. The thoughts or voices don't tell me to do anything bad, just bad stuff about my creator. These weird things cause me to sometimes pray faster to keep my mind just moving, sometimes I have to sleep with The Quran hugged to my chest. I mean they aren't nice. I have no doubt in Allah, his messenger, Islam, or Ahulbayet. Of course I am always sending my sallam to The Holy Prophet and HIs Pure Family. And always saying "asgafurallah rabi" or "a'thubilAllah min alshaydan rajam" Literally ALL the time. It gets annoying because I wish to say these for the sake of remembering Allah. But no, I have to say them because to get these thoughts out of my mind, which half the time doesn't work. My mom wants me to see a therapist but I don't want to. Does this happen to anyone else?I always fear Allah will hate me, or I will go to hell. I don't know what to do? What in the world could it be?My biggest fear which causes me to sometimes commit self harm, cry, etc.,is the fact that Allah might not forgive me, that he hates me because of these thoughts or voices. (I can't tell the difference) Thanks so much for taking the time to read and answer. May Allah Bless you all Duniya w Akira.
  20. Salam Alaikum everyone, There is a Hadith regarding the use of Nigella Sativa in the Sunni traditions, narrated by - you guessed it, Abu Hurayra - and I know what Shia believe regarding his character. The Hadith states that it is good for general well-being - or for treatment of diseases in general. There is a large amount of Shia Literature and I don't have the time to go through it, but is there any mention of this Plant being good or useful,or anything that agrees with Hurayra's narration? I want narrations from shia sources only and also can it even cure HIV...?? Thanks in advance to any informed reply!
  21. Peace be with you. I've never really understood the business and economy behind investing. Could someone with (advanced) knowledge or rather experience about this, explain it to me? What does the sharia' say about investing in companies and having shares etc. What do the maraji' say? Is this something that is halal or haram? Jazakallah khair. (I have heard incoherent answers that's why i'm hoping someone would clarify this)
