  1. I had always thought the two were one in the same, but I realize that you can love someone without respecting them and respect someone without loving them. The question is which of the two is more important and why?
  2. Was Maradona an anti-imperialist? I literslly lack any knowledge on this topic. But recently I have found a lot of Islamic and specifically shia channels honoring Maradona specifically. Not his game, but his humane part. Can someone share their knowledge regarding Maradona's political and social stances???
  3. I have researched and this question has not been addressed as I am asking here. Recently I heard an audio lecture of a person in Urdu here where he says Syeds are entitled to more respect because they are from lineage of Prophet Mohammad (sw) with one thing in mind 'A non-syed can attain more spiritual highness through Taqwa'. He gives references of Ahadis from Shia books, I will mention just few Lawamay Ilahiyah by Shaikh Miqdad Uyun ul Hikam wal mawaiz Fawaid ul Ulama and Faraid ul Hukama Manaqib by Allama Ibn e Shahr e Ashub Mir Baqir Damad He says those Syeds who don't have good character, they should be respected just like we respect those verses of Quran who are no more valid now (I don't know which Ayah of Quran are so). Interestingly whenever he quotes a Hadis from books, he uses the word 'Zuriyat' first and them implies it on Syeds (descendants of Prophet). I don't have extensive studies of Islam, but my question is that if it is true as this person says, then what about story of Prophet Noah (as) where God told him that his son is not from him and is not worthy of to be protected. Also narration of Prophet (sw) where he said 'Salman is from Ahlulbayt'. Is respect linked to lineage? Positive discussion is awaited.
  4. It's narrated that when Imams Hassan and Hussain (عليه السلام) were young, they saw an elderly man doing Wudhu incorrectly. Instead of telling him he did it wrong, they went up to him and asked him to see if THEY did their Wudhu correctly. This was a wise way to pass on the message without causing offence. If you saw your elders doing something incorrectly, how would you convey the message without causing offence?
  5. I've saw on the news and youtube of young women being abused by men from South Asian/Middle Eastern/North African Culture under the name of Taharrush. Didn't the Prophet have daughters e.g. Fatimah, Zainab, Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum, im sure Muhammad like any father would do damage to any man who tried to rape, humiliate, mutilate and kill his daughter/daughters. Im not religious or anything incase anyones asking, lost my way at 6 years old after cowards shot my da dead for no reason!
  6. The impression created by twelver shias while referring to Surah Ahzab Ayah 6 is that mother of believers is only in the sense that no one can marry wives of Prophet s.a.w.w after him. Its merely about prohibition of marriage with them. Nothing more, nothing less. While the order of prohibition of marrying the wives of Prophet s.a.w.w is already mentioned in Ahzab 52-53 very explicitly. Not lawful to you, [O Muhammad], are [any additional] women after [this], nor [is it] for you to exchange them for [other] wives, even if their beauty were to please you, except what your right hand possesses. And ever is Allah , over all things, an Observer. O you who have believed, do not enter the houses of the Prophet except when you are permitted for a meal, without awaiting its readiness. But when you are invited, then enter; and when you have eaten, disperse without seeking to remain for conversation. Indeed, that [behavior] was troubling the Prophet, and he is shy of [dismissing] you. But Allah is not shy of the truth. And when you ask [his wives] for something, ask them from behind a partition. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And it is not [conceivable or lawful] for you to harm the Messenger of Allah or to marry his wives after him, ever. Indeed, that would be in the sight of Allah an enormity. Then what is the significance and importance of Ahzab 6. The Prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves, and his wives are [in the position of] their mothers. And those of [blood] relationship are more entitled [to inheritance] in the decree of Allah than the [other] believers and the emigrants, except that you may do to your close associates a kindness [through bequest]. That was in the Book inscribed. Moreover this include all wives of Prophet s.a.w.w, not only umm aisha s.a. And they are mothers of both believing men and women. As verse does not separate the men and women here. Furthermore, both shia and sunni commentaries also confirm the same. i.e its more than merely prohibition of marriage. Sunni Tafsir Tafsir Qurtubi: وأزواجه أمهاتهم شرف الله تعالى أزواج نبيه صلى الله عليه وسلم بأن جعلهن أمهات المؤمنين ; أي في وجوب التعظيم والمبرة والإجلال وحرمة النكاح على الرجال And his wives (i.e. wives of the Prophet) are their mothers (i.e. mothers of believers). Allah venerated the wives of His Prophet salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam by giving them the status of Mothers of Believers, i.e. to be respected and venerated and the prohibition of re-marrying. (vol.14, p.123) Tafsir Ibn Kathir: وقوله : ( وأزواجه أمهاتهم ) أي : في الحرمة والاحترام ، والإكرام والتوقير والإعظام ، ولكن لا تجوز الخلوة بهن ، ولا ينتشر التحريم إلى بناتهن وأخواتهن بالإجماع (and his wives are their mothers.) i.e. in terms of prohibition (of marriage), and in terms of honour, respect and veneration, it is not permissible for them to be alone with them, and the prohibition of marriage to them does not extend to their daughters and sisters, according to scholarly consensus. (vol. 6, p. 380) Tafsir Fath al-Qadir: وأزواجه أمهاتهم أي : مثل أمهاتهم في الحكم بالتحريم ومنزلات منزلتهن في استحقاق التعظيم فلا يحل لأحد أن يتزوج بواحدة منهن كما لا يحل له أن يتزوج بأمه ، فهذه الأمومة مختصة بتحريم النكاح لهن وبالتعظيم لجنابهن (And his wives are their mothers) means: they are like their mothers in the ruling of prohibition of marriage, and they share the station of deserving treatment of grandeur, so it is not permissible for anyone to marry anyone of them, just like it is impermissible for them to marry their mothers. Thus this motherhood is about forbidding marriage with them and about respecting/venerating them. Tafsir al-Baydhawi: منزلات منزلتهن في التحريم واستحقاق التعظيم وأزواجه أمهاتهم “And his wives are their mothers” means they share the station of prohibition in marriage and deserving treatment of grandeur. (vol. 1, p. 364) Tafsir Ruh al-Ma’ani: وأزواجه أمهاتهم أي منزلات منزلة أمهاتهم في تحريم النكاح وإستحقاق التعظيم “And his wives are their mothers” means they share the station of mothers in the prohibition of marriage and the deservedness of respect. (vol. 21, p. 151) Shia Tafsir Tafsir al-Mizan of Ayatollah al-Tabataba’i: وقوله: (وأزواجه أمهاتهم) جعل تشريعي أي انهن منهم بمنزلة أمهاتهم في وجوب تعظيمهن وحرمة نكاحهن بعد النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم (and his wives are their mothers). This is the Sharia ruling i.e. his wives are to them like their mothers, and by necessity they (i.e. the wives of the Prophet) have to be honoured and are not allowed to be taken as wives after the Prophet salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam. (vol. 16, p. 288) Tafsir al-Safi of the renowned Muhsin al-Fayd al-Kashani, وأزوجه أمهاتهم منزلات منزلتهن في التحريم مطلقا وفي استحقاق التعظيم (And his wives are their mothers) means they share the station of prohibition in marriage and deserving treatment of grandeur. (vol. 4, p. 168) Tafsir Namunah/al-Amthal Fi Tafsir al-Qur’an (written by Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi and other researchers): در اينجا سؤ الى مطرح است و آن اينكه آيا تعبير ((ازواجه امهاتهم )): ((همسران پيامبر مادران مؤ منين محسوب مى شوند)) با چيزى كه در چند آيه قبل گذشت تضاد ندارد؟ زيرا در آنجا مى فرمايد: ((كسانى كه گاهى همسرانشان را بمنزله مادر خود قرار مى دهند، سخن باطلى مى گويند، مادر آنها فقط كسى است كه از او متولد شده اند)) با اين حال چگونه همسران پيامبر كه مسلمانان از آنان متولد نشده اند مادر محسوب مى شوند؟ در پاسخ اين سؤ ال بايد به اين نكته توجه كرد كه خطاب مادر به يك زن يا بايد از نظر جسمانى باشد يا روحانى ، اما از نظر جسمانى تنها در صورتى اين معنى واقعيت دارد كه انسان از او متولد شده باشد، و اين همان است كه در آيات پيشين آمده كه مادر جسمانى انسان تنها كسى است كه از او متولد شده است ، و اما پدر يا مادر روحانى كسى است كه يكنوع حق معنوى بر او داشته باشد، همچون پيامبر (صلى اللّه عليه و آله و سلّم ) كه پدر روحانى امت محسوب مى شود، و هم به خاطر او همسرانش احترام مادر را دارند. A question arises here that isn’t the explanation of the verse (and his wives are their mothers) against the verses mentioned before. Because there it is mentioned, “Those who declare their wives as their mothers, and in fact they use false words, their mothers are only the ones who bore them.” In this situation, how can the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him) be considered the mothers of the believers. This point should be noted in answering the question at hand that addressing a woman as mother is either due to biological relation, or spiritual relation. This meaning could be only in the case of biological relation, and this is the same thing which is mentioned in the earlier verses, that a person’s biological mother is only the one who bore him. But the spiritual mother and father are those who have a kind of special right over them, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) is considered the spiritual father of the nation, and due to him, his wives hold the respect which a mother holds. (vol. 17, p. 180) Words of Imam Ali a.s, whom twelvers claim to follow. ولها بعد حرمتها الاولى والحساب على الله She has the same respect afterwards as she had earlier, and the accountability is on Allah to take. (Nahjul balagha) Same respect/honour as she had earlier, meaning she was neither given divorce nor was cursed by Imam Ali a.s. Therefore, the title mother of believers is a great merit of the wives of Prophet s.a.w.w. A fact which can not be denied except by ignorant one. And any narrations that goes against these explicit verses of Quran are nothing but useless. Jazak Allah Khairan.
  7. Salam Alaikum Everyone, Okay sooooo I know it is our islamic duty to respect our parents at all times, in all situations etc. but, but. My mother is an emotionally/verbally abusive person who has anger management issues. I know I sound like a whiny child but every since I was very young she treated me as if I had the mental capacity to understand certain issues that a child doesn't at that age. This could be related to the fact that she was single and probably craving adult understanding. She is extremely explosive and never admits to making any sort of mistake. She blames me constantly for her mistakes and when I defend myself, tells me that I am being disgustingly rude and ungrateful. I appreciate everything she has done for me (raised me as a single mother while juggling a full time career) but the way she treats me contributed to so many mental health problems that she again, became angry with me for. All this changed slightly when she remarried another man but anyway, How much do I have to respect her? and am I obliged to respect her husband as a "father"?

  9. Hey dear sisters! I hope you are all doing well. You see, the reason for my post today is to talk about some things that frustrate me about people's attitude towards the hijab. I am sure not everyone disrespects the hijab, but a large number of the people I've met do, and I could not help bringing this to topic. Opinions please? [rest of post deleted]
  10. Salam alaikum! I am a Muslim convert, a Shia convert. I recently got into a heated argument with my Muslim friend about people of the Sunni faith. As Shia's, we believe different things, but I still respect Sunni Muslims as my fellow brothers and sisters.. Yet it seems to me I cannot discuss Sunni Islam with Shi'ite without confrontational replies or declarations, like "They're liars" or "They don't know the truth". Yes, we think the truth is one thing, they think it is another.. They think their truth is just as valid, they are well researched, and is our true enemy not the enemy of Islam? Why create conflicts in modern day against our fellow brothers and sisters where we do not need to? Why judge Sunni people for believing a different set of events? I was raised within a Catholic family, but all my aunts and uncles are different types of Christians and it was never a problem! We all went to each others churches and respected each others differences in belief and practice. Why can this not happen with the Sunni and Shia? I just went to another thread and seen a meme "Shia - y u no stick to your own people" WHAT?! Are you serious? Since when was PREJUDICE and HATE part of Islam?
