  1. I have a question was jalaluddin Surkh-Posh Bukhari shia or sunni?
  2. [This will be a series of blog entries on the history of ShiaChat.com; how it was founded, major ups and down, politics and issues behind running such a site and of course, the drama! I will also provide some feedback on development efforts, new features and future goals and objectives] Part 1 - The IRC (#Shia) Days! Sit children, gather around and let me speak to you of tales of times before there was ever high-speed Internet, Wi-Fi, YouTube or Facebook; a time when the Internet was a much different place and 15 yearold me was still trying to make sense of it all. In the 90s, the Internet was a very different place; no social media, no video streaming and downloading an image used to take anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on how fast your 14.4k monster-sized dial-up modem was. Of course you also had to be lucky enough for your mom to have the common courtesy not to disconnect you when you’re in the middle of a session; that is if you were privileged enough to have Internet at home and not have to spend hours at school or libraries, or looking for AOL discs with 30 hour free trials..(Breathe... breathe... breathe) - I digress. Back in 1998 when Google was still a little computer sitting in Larry Page and Sergey Brin’s basement, I was engaged in endless debates with our Sunni brothers on an IRC channel called #Shia. (Ok, a side note here for all you little pups. This is not read as Hashtag Shia, the correct way of reading this is “Channel Shia”. The “Hashtag” was a much cooler thing back in the day than the way you young’uns use it today). For those of you who don’t know what IRC was (or is... as it still exists), it stands for Internet Relay Chat, which are servers available that you could host chat rooms in and connect through a client. It was like the Wild West where anyone can go and “found” their own channel (chat room), become an operator and reign down their god-like dictator powers upon the minions that were to join as a member of their chat room. Luckily, #Shia had already been established for a few years before by a couple of brothers I met from Toronto, Canada (Hussain A. and Mohammed H.). Young and eager, I quickly rose up the ranks to become a moderator (@Ali) and the chatroom quickly became an important part of my adolescent years. I learned everything I knew from that channel and met some of the most incredible people. Needless to say, I spent hours and dedicated a good portion of my life on the chatroom; of course, the alternate was school and work but that was just boring to a 15-year-old. In the 90’s, creating a website was just starting to be cool so I volunteered to create a website for #Shia to advertise our services, who we are, what we do as well as have a list of moderators and administrators that have volunteered to maintain #Shia. As a result, #Shia’s first website was hosted on a friend’s server under the URL http://786-110.co.uk/shia/ - yes, ShiaChat.com as a domain did not exist yet – was too expensive for my taste so we piggybacked on one of our member’s servers and domain name. The channel quickly became popular, so popular that we sometimes outnumbered our nemesis, #Islam. As a result, our moderator team was growing as well and we needed a website with an application that would help us manage our chatroom in a more efficient style. Being a global channel, it was very hard to do “shift transfers” and knowledge transfers between moderators as the typical nature of a chatroom is the fact that when a word is typed, its posted and its gone after a few seconds – this quickly became a pain point for us trying to maintain a list of offenders to keep an eye out for and have it all maintained in a historical, easily accessible way. A thought occurred to me. Why not start a “forum” for the moderators to use? The concept of “forums” or discussion boards was new to the Internet – it was the seed of what we call social media today. The concept of having a chat-style discussion be forever hosted online and be available for everyone to view and respond to at any time from anywhere was extremely well welcomed by the Internet users. I don’t recall what software or service I initially used to set that forum up, but I did – with absolutely no knowledge that the forum I just set up was a tiny little acorn that would one day be the oak tree that is ShiaChat.com. [More to follow, Part 2..] So who here is still around from the good old #Shia IRC days?
  3. Assalamualaikum, For my own knowledge, I am researching on the "House of Knowledge" established during the time of 6th Imam Jafar al Sadiq ((عليه السلام)) in the ancient round city of Baghdad (approx. 800 AD). Overview: The Abbasids were staunch enemies of the holy ahlulbait, but the accursed evil Abbassid Caliph Haroon Rashid wanted to establish his authority over muslims by embracing Imam Jafar Sadiq in his arms ( a fake show of public, stating that Haroon loves the ahlulbait and is acting as the caliph just to safeguard religion and assigned the imam as his rightful successor). Haroon did not imprison the imam to avoid public outrage but never wanted to leave the imam out of sight for fear of losing his caliphate, thus the evil caliph had an ingenious idea to appoint important royal responsibilities to the imam and hold him in the palace boundaries with less public interaction so as to hide the true (shia) islam and thus he made the imam the head of many institutions, including the renowed "House of Knowledge" It was in this house of knowledge where biology, chemistry, philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, religion and numerous sciences were being taught freely for the first time leading to the Islamic Golden Age, imam had more than 6000 students from all over the world during his era, that is the reason Shias are also famously referred to as "Jafaris", as it was never before and never after the 6th imam when religious and scientific propagation was at this epic level. Now, when I researched more on the internet, many sites listed a few students of Imam Jafar, like Jabir ibn Hayyan (known in the West as Geber), Khwazrimi (father of Algebra, imagine the level of knowledge of imam Jafar Sadiq, when even his student is the father of a science) stating that their master was imam Jafar Sadiq, who had the knowledge of unlimited sciences, it is mind boggling.. Unfortunately, the Wikipedia page for "House of Wisdom" has absolutely no mention of our 6th Imam Jafar Sadiq (عليه السلام)., I'll appreciate if anyone can point me to any sources (reliabile blogs, sites, pdf, ebooks, or book purchase links) related to this topic. Thank you.
  4. What is your view on Ahmed Shah Massoud ("The Lion of Panjshir")? Was he involved in killings of innocent Hazara Shias?
  5. Salam, I am a first year law student in Brighton, UK from Toronto, Canada. Coming from a city and family where azadari is a big part of my life. If anyone knows of any helpful information with regards to shias in Brighton, UK, please let me know. I have looked everywhere for a shia mosque or household that holds majlis but haven't come across anything. As Muharram is fast approaching, I really need to figure this out ASAP because commuting to London for majalis everyday is not convenient or cheap. Please reply if you know anyone that can be of help or you know a shia family in this town. Jazakallah!
  6. Do Shia converts from non muslim and Sunni have a hard time eating halal and stop listening to music? Is it difficult because your used to it or do you give it up cold turkey?
  7. 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?

I have question and i will really appreciate it if you can answer my question. my wife don't believe that fact that we have to cook something for fateha or durud so that we can dedicate its sawab to a certain Islamic figure and also (bakhshna) to our passed away ancestors.

  20. Reply & Explanation: 1. This letter no. 58, just provides a little information to his people about Siffin those were scattered in various regions and they have already given bayah to imam Ali (عليه السلام). How do you expect that this little piece of advice / explanation should have every basic principle of Shia creed (true followers) of Imam Ali (عليه السلام). in that single paper? Such a silly comment is not expected from any mindful person. 2. There are about 12 Nos. of sermons and 04 Nos. of Letters in Nehjul balagah for the events that mentions the Siffieen battle. I will just mention some summarized contents from some of those with relevant reference to explain my view before I can arrive at a certain point of view & conclusion: 3. For the basic Usul and Principles of Religion for 12vers hadith book Al-kafi was written about 70 years at least before the Nehjul balagah was compiled. There are many hadith describing the verses of quran both in shia and sunni sources that mention the hadith of Ghadeer and Ali bin abi talib being selected Imam and Caliph after the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Do you like to deny all those verses of quran and relevant hadith? 4. Moreover there has been lot of discussions on the topic of Ghadeer and hadith for Imam Al (عليه السلام) appointment as caliph at SC. All these details are certain on the basis of verses of quran and hadith of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), every careful can read those to realize the intensity of truth. 5. For the event of Siffin battle the following extract from the relevant sermons and letters is presented below: Letter No. 58 paragraphs: The whole thing began thus that we and the Syrians met in an encounter although we believe in one and the same Allah and the same Prophet, and our message in Islam is the same. We did not want them to add anything in the belief in Allah or in acknowledging His Messenger (Allah bless him and his descendants) nor did they want us to add any such thing. In fact, there was complete unity except that we differed on the question of `Uthman's blood while we were free of responsibility for it. We suggested to them to appease the situation by calming the temporary irritation and pacifying the people till matters settled down and stabilized when we would gain strength to put matters right. They however said that they would settle it by war. Thus, they refused our offer and consequently war spread its wings and came to stay. Its flames rose and became strong. When the war had bitten us as well as them and pierced its talons into us as well as them, they accepted what we had proposed to them. So, we agreed to what they suggested and hastened to meet their request. In this way, the plea became clear to them and no excuse was left to them. Now, whoever among them adheres to this will be saved by Allah from ruin, and whoever shows obstinacy and insistence (on wrong) is the reverser whose heart has been blinded by Allah and evils will encircle his head.” The words of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) are very clear about those who like to settle the matter by war. How they can be of same virtues and belief? This is utter nonsense. (.......Continued)
