  1. What is the Shiite standpoint on this issue? And if it's true then aren't ISIS and taliban following religion in it's true form? And why should we expect benevolence from non-muslims while we can't be benevolent to them and their place of worship? 1 – Muslim (969) narrated that Abu’l-Hayaaj al-Asadi said: ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib said to me: “Shall I not send you with the same instructions as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) sent me? ‘Do not leave any image without defacing it or any built-up grave without leveling it.’” 2 – Muslim (832) narrated from ‘Urwah ibn ‘Abasah that he said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “With what were you sent?” He said, “I was sent to uphold the ties of kinship, to break the idols, and so that Allaah would be worshipped alone with no partner or associate.” Source : https://islamqa.info/en/20894 Do answer with facts and references rather than mere opinions.
  2. Interesting reading. http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/specialseries/2016/10/taliban-oil-afghanistan-161004085739050.html
  3. What Was Mullah Mansour Doing in Iran? In the wake of the Taliban leader’s death, we’re only now coming to understand just how ties between Tehran and the Taliban are evolving. On May 21, after a drone strike obliterated a car and its two occupants in Pakistan’s Balochistan province, local officials discovered a Pakistani passport, miraculously intact, amid the smoldering wreckage and two bodies charred beyond recognition. The passport belonged to a man identified as Wali Muhammad. Its photo bore an uncanny resemblance to Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, the supreme leader of the Afghan Taliban targeted by the drone strike, who lay dead close by. According to reports in the Pakistani press, the passport indicated that its owner, presumably Mullah Mansour, had been returning from Iran, where he had been since April 26. He had also traveled there for several weeks in February and March. Mullah Mansour’s decision to visit Iran and leave his sanctuary in Balochistan — where the Afghan Taliban’s top leadership had long been safely ensconced — is odd. After all, Tehran is no friend of the Taliban; on the contrary, it has formally aligned itself with Afghanistan’s Northern Alliance and other anti-Taliban actors. It played an instrumental role at the 2001 Bonn Conference that established a post-Taliban government. In the early years of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, Tehran gave Washington maps showing Taliban positions, and its military offered to train 20,000 Afghan troops. Iran also has good reason to distance itself from the Taliban. Simple sectarian considerations — Iran is Shiite, the Taliban is Sunni — offer one explanation. But the divergences run deeper: The Taliban harbors links to Jundallah, an anti-state Sunni terror group in Iran. It oversees a flourishing narcotics trade that feeds Iran’s crippling heroin epidemic, and it has been blamed for the killings of nearly a dozen Iranian diplomats at their consulate in the Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif in 1998, which brought Iran and Taliban-run Afghanistan to the brink of war (according to some accounts, the Pakistani anti-Shiite militant group Sipah-e-Sahaba was behind that attack). Western authorities have a simple explanation for Mullah Mansour’s presence in Iran: He was there to receive medical treatment, according to a European official quoted in the New York Times, in order to avoid Pakistani hospitals and the watchful eye of his patron, Pakistan’s intelligence agency. No specifics were given as to what he was being treated for. The Wall Street Journal, curiously, has reported that Mullah Mansour was actually in Iran to visit family. In any case, U.S. officials knew of his whereabouts and, aided by communications intercepts, were able to track him there. According to a tweet by NPR correspondent Tom Bowman, Washington even had his SIM card number. Mullah Mansour’s trip to Iran may well have been a simple trip to the doctor. But the trip may have had more nefarious purposes, too. Despite the differences between Tehran and the Taliban, they share some key interests and have often cooperated operationally. Indeed, Tehran and the Taliban have a more symbiotic relationship than meets the eye. In particular, they are both wary of the West and particularly the United States. And each seeks to undercut Washington’s influence. Thomas Joscelyn, an international security analyst and senior editor with the Long War Journal, has presented a compelling case of long-standing links between Iran and the Taliban. These links date back to 2000, when, according to unclassified U.S. government memos, Mullah Mohammed Omar tasked Khirullah Said Wali Khairkhwa, the Taliban governor of Herat province, with improving relations between the organization and Tehran. As a result of this outreach, Iran agreed to supply the Taliban with mines and small arms. (On two separate occasions in 2007 and 2011, international forces in Afghanistan intercepted arms shipments from Iran destined for the Taliban.) The two sides also inked an open border agreement that enabled the Taliban to smuggle money, goods, and fighters into Iran. Khairkhwa’s outreach laid the groundwork for a later, major triumph of Iran-Taliban cooperation: the 2012 opening of a Taliban office in the Iranian city of Zahedan, home to many of the several million Afghans residing in Iran. Historically, a key factor driving Iran’s cooperation with the Taliban has been mutual concern about the U.S. military presence, and broader American influence, in Afghanistan. Tehran, for example, has that U.S. forces could launch attacks on its nuclear facilities from Afghanistan. Today, circumstances have changed. U.S. combat forces have withdrawn from Afghanistan, and Iran and the United States have concluded a landmark nuclear agreement. One might assume these developments would ease some of Iran’s anxieties about America’s designs and suggest fewer incentives for Tehran to cooperate with the Taliban — think again. News reports over the last year suggest increased levels of Iranian cash and arms transfers to the Taliban. But why? One reason, which may also help explain Moscow’s recent outreach to the Taliban, is the shared unease about the rising influence of the Islamic State in Afghanistan, where several thousand former Taliban fighters, most of them in the eastern province of Nangarhar, have declared their allegiance to the group. Some of Mullah Mansour’s supporters, demoralized by their leader’s sudden death, could join these Islamic State-aligned fighters. Another factor that may help explain Iran-Taliban comity is the Taliban’s desire to wean itself off Pakistani sanctuaries and other largesse. As I’ve written previously, NATO interviews with Taliban detainees reveal that many of the group’s leaders and fighters chafe at their reliance on Islamabad, a patron many Taliban members do not trust because of the tight control it likes to exert over them as well as its willingness to arrest those Taliban personnel deemed uncooperative. With the Taliban reeling from the death of Mullah Mansour in Balochistan — a sanctuary where the group had never felt vulnerable before — it may have an even stronger incentive to secure alternative arrangements that do not involve Pakistan. For the Taliban, this could amplify the utility of retaining, if not intensifying, its ties to Tehran — and particularly, as some observers have suggested, by using areas it controls in Afghanistan to work out arrangements with Iran to receive covert financial support. For Iran, a strong incentive for continuing cooperation with the Taliban is the need for a hedging strategy: Amid all the uncertainty and volatility in Afghanistan, where the insurgency continues to make inroads and a weak national unity government faces an uncertain future, it pays for Iran to keep its options open with the Taliban, arguably Afghanistan’s most consequential non-state actor. This isn’t to say that the Taliban have no reason to cooperate with Kabul. On the contrary, Iran would be much better served by scaling back measures — from arms shipments and money transfers to the provision of the Taliban office in Zahedan — that strengthen the Taliban. A stronger Taliban means more instability in Afghanistan, which in turn portends a more robust narcotics trade and higher refugee outflows. Both have direct and deleterious consequences for Iran. Additionally, a more destabilized Afghanistan imperils promising development projects critical to Iran as it struggles to recover from years of sanctions. This week, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Tehran to conclude a series of accords with Iran and Afghanistan linked to the development of Iran’s Chabahar port, an initiative meant to facilitate trade and transport among gas-rich Central Asia, Afghanistan, and India. In effect, Iran could serve as a gateway to much-coveted markets and a lynchpin of a major effort to scale up regional connectivity. Yet if Iran keeps showering the Taliban with money and arms, thereby contributing to Afghanistan’s destabilization, Chabahar may be a port to nowhere. In reality, Tehran is likely to play a double game: It will continue to work with Kabul while providing covert support to the Taliban. The U.S.-Iran nuclear deal may have eased some of the tensions in U.S.-Iran relations, but the two nations have not magically become friends. Meanwhile, the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan, which may not be drawn down as quickly as President Barack Obama had wished, will continue to trouble Iran, even if it is secretly reassured that U.S. forces could help bring a modicum of stability to Afghanistan. Furthermore, Iran is unlikely to simply wash its hands of an organization that controls more territory in Afghanistan than at any time since 2001. Ultimately, the complex ties between Tehran and the Taliban exemplify a slight variation of a well-known diplomatic dictum: The enemy of my enemy is my frenemy. http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/05/27/mullah-mansour-iran-afghanistan-taliban-drone/?utm_content=buffer006e9&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer
  4. (salam) So, as many Pakistanis would know that the not-so-unknown hand has also been killing prominent members of our society especially doctors. Recently several doctors have been killed. Dr. Shahid in Islamabad and a few junior doctors in south punjab and elsewhere. Unless I'm mistaken these were not Shia, or were they?
  5. Numerous and ever growing number of Sunni Ulemah are declaring these Khwarij as what they actually are, "DOGS OF HELL" as Nabi (pbuh&hf) called them. They and all those who declared allegiance to them and their mini me's are all going to hell as per these Sunni Ulemah. Following is the link to an open letter written to Baghdadi by Sunni Ulemah declaring all his actions to be Un Islamic and sinful. Read it yourself; http://www.lettertobaghdadi.com/ Or simply Google " an open letter to Al-Baghdadi". you can download the entire letter as well for the website.
  6. News confirmed: Paki Army exporting Armaments and Salafi Shia killers to Syria. Worst part, its going to line the pockets of a few generals and a few political families and would not have any triclle down economic benefit to the cursed land of mass called Pakistan. http://www.dw.de/is-pakistan-aiding-syrian-rebels/a-17528187 http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/islamabad/01-Apr-2014/senate-concerned-over-change-in-policy-on-syria http://www.nation.com.pk/national/31-Mar-2014/arms-supply-to-syrian-rebels-to-damage-pakistan-more-us-expert http://www.brecorder.com/general-news/172/1168385/ There are unconfirmed reports circulating around Islamabad inner circles on almost 100,000 Paki Salafi terrorists being exported to Syria, Iraq, and Yemen to create more destabilization in Shia dominated regions. I wonder when would the payback hit the GCC nations? September 2014 maybe?
  7. Here is an article showing the likes of Imran Khan and his bearded friends their ugly, hypocritical, contorted faces. Good reason he didn't win the national poll last year, or Pakistan would already have become an emirate with Mullah Omar as its defence minister. To put things in context, a famous journalist Raza Rumi who hosts a talk show on an anti-Taliban TV channel was attacked a couple of days ago for speaking out against Takfiri terrorism and the oppression of minorities. Luckily he survived the attack but his driver was killed. On another occasion, a Christian man accused of blasphemy was sentenced to death by a court. It's the same case in the wake of which a mob came crashing into the Joseph Christian Colony (Lahore) and burned down 100+ houses, reacting nothing but only to hearsay. Read full HERE
  8. Recently the spokesman or leader (one of them) of Sipah-e-Sahaba Shamsur Rehman Muavia, was shot dead Friday by unknown gunmen in Lahore. Is this a sign that our shia ulema are killing the leaders of these yazidi outfits instead of taken them on by creating militia's, maybe they are trying to avoid any sign of civil war within the country. Could it be that Sipah-e-Muhammed is still operating but silently by keeping an eye on these yazidi's, i have also read that sipah-e-muhammed could be operating under a new name called lashkar-e-imam-e-awwal (Source:http://centralasiaonline.com/en_GB/articles/caii/features/pakistan/main/2011/01/11/feature-01?mobile=true) doesn't seem to be reliable source but still worth a good read. Here are some more incident's that could involve have involved this group: In 1990s, the founder and the main leader of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi was assassinated.In January, 1997, the main leader of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Zia-ur-Rehman Farooqi was killed as a result of bombings near Lahore Session Court.In May, 2002, the leader of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi was assassinated near a Shiite populated village.In October 2003, the main leader of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Azam Tariq was gunned down.In August, 2009, the leader of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi of Khairpur, Pakistan chapter, Ali Sher Haideri was gunned down.In February, 2010, the leader of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Abdul Rauf Asghar was assassinated.In August, 2013, the spokesman of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi of Karachi chapter, was gunned down near Karachi Safari Park on University Road.
  9. (bismillah) (salam) First of all my condolences to Imam zaman (as) ,all you momineen o mominaat and Rahbar Syed Ali khamenei on this occasion. In this thread i will post the problems faced by pakistani shias in this holy month of muharram.so we all can be aware of what is going on in pakistan and may be inshallah we get a bigger picture of what the great devil and its allies are trying to achieve. i pray to God that may Allah guard every muslim in every aspect and give us the love of Imam Hussain (as) and give us taufeeq to follow him (as) Iltemas e Dua Pre-Muharram shia killings in Karachi 2 days before the start of muharram,6 shias got killed in the biggest city of pakistan i.e karachi. Federal Government and its policies Almost a week before the start of this holy month,a provincial minister of ruling party(in federation as well as in punjab which is biggest and most resourceful province of pakistan) appeared on tv in a press conference and announced that there will be no majalis and juloos(processions) but those who are registered with government so we can manage their security effectively(you all know about effective security of shias in pakistan-sarcasm) section 144 was applied which prohibit an assembly of more than ten people in an area.
  10. (salam) Well, you can say that I'm late posting this thread but believe me; my purpose is not to remind you of the murder of Hakimullah Mehsud - the cursed terrorist who slaughtered innocents in the name of jihad. I want you all - specially Pakistanis - to focus upon two points: - Drone Attacks - Imran Khan's extreme affection for the terrorists - Drone Attacks I suppose we must condemn Drone Attacks when they're accidentally used to blast innocents off. But we should support'em when they aim at the terrorists only. We all know that the Government of Pakistan is in control of the terrorists and Nawaz Sharif - the 'Amir ul Mominin' of the Wahhabi Muslims. Thus, no struggle against terrorism must be hoped from him. - Imran Khan's extreme affection for the terrorists I love Imran Khan because he's one of the best politicians in Pakistan. He has the ability of change the fate of the wretched Pakistan. But I dislike his love and support for the terrorists. What do you all say?
  11. http://www.abna.ir/data.asp?lang=3&id=406652 I recently came across this online book on a revert brother who saw the light of Islam after being misled into Salafi-Satanic cult. I'm posting the Preface of the Book. Read the book on the link above. Keep the SC community members in your Ramadhan duas. wassalam................................ Chapter One: PrefaceThe motivation behind the writing of this book came about from my personal experience. From my humble Christian background Allah (swt) guided me to his deen (religion). The brothers who converted me were themselves Salafi and hence I was indoctrinated to their aqeedah (ideology). The earliest thing that I was told was that I should be weary of the enemies of Islam disguised as Muslims such as Shi’as who portrayed Islam on the outside but were infact kaffir, on account of the “facts” such as: They believe that the Qur’an has verses missing from it. They curse the Sahaba and wives of the Prophet(s). They believe that the revelation should have gone to Ali, but Gabriel (as) accidentally conveyed it to Prophet Muhammad (s). As such they curse Gabriel when they complete their prayers. They beat themselves in Muharram and fornicate in the precincts of their mosques on the 10th night – any male product from this illegal union is named Hussain, and any girl is named Zaynab.You can imagine how this made me feel, being constantly told about this, time and time again. Hence I bore extreme hatred towards the Shi’a in my heart. As a brother told me “You should hate the Shi’a with a vengeance”. Two years after I reverted I married a Salafi sister of South Asian descent – whilst practising, she was rather less exuberant than I was in active Dawah activities. A few weeks after we married, very close friends of my wife invited us both to dinner. It was only when I arrived there that I learnt that the family were Shi’a, had I known earlier I would have probably never gone. The host was very kind, but kept asking me questions on my beliefs etc. I tried to side-track, but he kept prying and this made be feel very uneasy. This was our first meeting but we met many more times in the coming weeks, on account of the fact that his place of work was next to the University where I studied. He tried his hardest to convince me that the Shi’a were correct in their beliefs, but I simply programmed myself to believe that he was a kaffir who was practising Taqiyyah. Despite this after a year of heated discussions my heart was starting to accept some of his arguments. Whilst I would simply regurgitate whatever my Salafi brothers had taught me – he would always reply logically and would back up his comments by citing traditions from classical works such as Sahih al Bukhari. In truth I had not discussed any of these conversations to my Salafi brothers, until I was out one day and visited a market stall that was run by two Salafi reverts. After our general salutations I informed one of the brothers that I had a friend who was Shi’a and inquired whether he knew anything about the Shi’a faith. No sooner did I say the name “Shi’a” that the brother’s face changed colour, he said: “Brother don’t talk to them they are kaffir (infidels), they believe that the Qur’an has verses missing”. I told him that the Shi’a I had spoken to denied this and countered me by presenting a tahreef tradition from Sahih al Bukhari – with Umar stating that a Surah on stoning is missing. The brother was shocked and after about a minute’s silence he said: “brother they did black magic with your eyes you didn’t see it!” This really made me laugh and I walked off. I proceeded to do my shopping and was just passing the stall again when the brother called me over and introduced me to a revert who he acclaimed as an “expert on Shi’aism”. The ‘expert’ said: “So you wanna know about the Shi’a kaffir, all you need to know is that they believe in 12 Gods”. Even I from my general conversations with the Shi’a brother knew that this was a blatant lie. I then decided to test him by quizzing the fact that Shi’as believe ‘Ali to be the Prophet (s)’s legitimate successor and I cited the Sahih tradition ‘Ali is to me as Harun is to Musa except there shall be no Prophet after me’. The ‘expert’ then countered this by asking: “And what did he (s) say about Umar[r]?” I knew exactly what he was asking and said: “If there had to be a Prophet after me it would be Umar”. The expert patted me on the back and said: “Exactly brother”. I then asked him “That being the case why did Umar not become the first Khalifa? Is this not an insult to Hadhrath Umar?” The expert looked bemused, smiled and said: “Brother you’ve just used your Aql (reason) and that’s haraam”. It was that reply that will act as a permanent memory for me. I still remember looking over to the revert brother who owned the stall following this reply, he smiled a half smile, that to me suggested that he was about as convinced at the reply as I was. For me this was the turning point in my life. The sheer stupidity and lies I heard at that stall convinced me that the Salafis were trying to cover something up. Alhamdolillah, the ‘expert’ achieved greater success in guiding me to the Shi’a than the Shi’a brother had, despite a year of rigorous debating! It was his blatant lies and lack of logic that repelled me away from the Salafis and attracted me to the Ahl’ul bayt (as). You might ask ‘what has this to do with the preface?’ – well only a handful of brothers are fortunate enough to ever meet knowledgeable Shi’as and learn the actual truth. As the vast bulk of reverts are brought to the Din by the Salafi’s the opportunity of them ever actually meeting and discussing matters with Shi’as is highly unlikely. This is increased when one takes into account the level of propaganda and lies that are pumped into a revert’s mind with regards to the Shi’a and what they allegedly believe. When I look back at my time with the Salafis I recall that they never talked about ‘Ali (as) – why? Well since becoming Shi’a, truth has been made manifest – they are the Nawasib, his enemies – and are hiding their enmity behind the “Sunni label”. That’s why I had asked the brother who sacrificed so many hours of his time to guide me, to write a rebuttal of their lies and expose their actual aqeedah to the world. I hope that this book opens the minds of my fellow reverts who have been deceived by the Salafis. It is indeed sad that these same reverts who embraced Islam having researched the truth with an open mind and logical reasoning, abandon these same principles when being indoctrinated into the Salafi movement, preferring to blindly follow every word of their Nasibi Shaykhs. I also hope that the book acts as a source of inspiration to my down-trodden Shi’a brothers and sisters who have to put up with the Salafi Nasibi propaganda onslaught on a daily basis. Your brother in Islam, Abdul Hakeem Oranu. Chapter Two: Introduction .................
  12. (salam) Watched news. Heard that Pakistan is going to negotiate with Taliban to make peace with'em. Wonder how stupid they are. But no. They are actually hypocrites. They have soft corner for Taliban. They don't wanna start a military operation against'em. It were these pseudo-religious and extremist political parties who originated terrorism in Pakistan and let Saudi Arabia lay its foundations. Pakistan is capable of dealing with Taliban easily. Their army's 100 times better than Taliban. But Taliban have spread like cancer. They're in bureaucracy, judiciary, military, politics, society etc. How would they raise hand on their own brothers? Pakistan has been occupied by these lewd terrorists now. Poor state! :( I believe that negotiations with Taliban (and all terrorist organizations) is a dream that can't come true. You can't negotiate with a mad dog. It won't listen to you. It wanna bite you and nothing else. If you wanna keep it as a pet then you're an idiot. It's not a risk. It's an irreversible and unpardonable blunder (you can call it a crime as well). Terrorists are wild dogs and when a puppy goes crazy, it's shot, not cured. Government of Pakistan is going to repent because soon negotiations will prove to be fruitless and then they'll be obliged to eradicate terrorism by beheading these terrorists. Hurrah!
  13. Here's a rare footage of Iranian military advisors in Syrian conflict. True or not but seems like this war is not-winnable for Wahhabis anymore. http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/15/video-offers-glimpse-of-syrias-war-through-the-eyes-of-iranian-military-advisers/?_r=0 Here's the news of Israelis fighting on the side of Takfiris from Israeli media. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/172034
  14. A big big very big Propaganda is made today to prove that Khorasan means Afghanistan, and Taliban is mentioned as bearer of those Black Flags. This is total false. Let us destroy this propaganda with Allah's help. Insha-Allah. Firstly, this Black Flag was the sign of SHIA community for the last 1400 years and still it is till today. Secondly, the main Khorasan is present in Iran today, and it's center is Mashhad. This is the same Mashhad which is the center of Religious Activities in Iran and almost all religious leadership is coming from this city. Thirdly, Khurasan-e-Buzurg (Greater Khurasan), which existed during the Era of Prophet Muhammad (saw), it also did not contained the areas of Afghanistan where Pushto is spoken (where Taliban has got their support). No, but it also contained only those Areas of Afghanistan where Farsi (Persian) is spoken and these areas are deadly against Taliban. The Pushto speaking area, where Taliban have support, that area was known as "Sindh" and areas of Ghazni and Qandhar etc. were included in it. The eastern area from Sindh was known as Hindustan. While the western area from Sindh was known as Khurasan, and it's boundaries were Merv, Balkh and Hirat (i.e. non-Pushto speaking areas). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:An...ighlighted.jpg Description Map showing Ancient Persia in light yellowish and the the land called Sind (most of today's Afghanistan and part of Pakistan) in pinkish.A number of ancient references are made to the names shown in this map. Ibn Batutta writes in 1333 AD: [1] "We travelled from there to Naysabur, one of the four capitals of Khurasan.... We travelled thence to Parwan, where I met the amir Buruntayh. He treated me well and wrote to his representatives at Ghazna enjoining them to show me honour. We went on to the village of Charkh [Charikar], it being now summer, and from there to the town of Ghazna. This is the town of the famous warrior-sultan Mahmud ibn Sabuktagin, one of the greatest of rulers, who made frequent raids into India and captured cities and fortresses there. His grave is in this city and is surmounted by a hospice. The greater part of the town is in ruins and nothing but a fraction of it remains, though it was once a large city. It has an exceedingly cold climate, and the inhabitants move from it in the cold season to Qandahar, a large and prosperous town three nights journey from Ghazna, but I did not visit it. We travelled on to Kabul, formerly a vast town, the site of which is now occupied by a village inhabited by a tribe of Persians called Afghans. They hold mountains and defiles and possess considerable strength, and are mostly highwaymen. Their principle mountain is called Kuh Sulayman... From Kabul we rode to Karmash, which is a fortress belonging to the Afghans... On reaching Sind I followed this practice and bought horses, camels, white slaves and other goods from the merchants. I had already bought from an Iraqi merchant in Ghazna about thirty horses and a camel with a load of arrows, for this is one of the things presented to the sultan. This merchant went off to Khurasan and on returning to India received his money from me. After crossing the river of Sind called Panj Ab, our way led through a forrest of reeds, in which I saw a rhinoceros for the first time. After two days' march we reached Janani, a large and fine town on the bank of the river Sind. Its people are a people called the Samira, whose ancestors established themselves there on the conquest of Sind in the time of al-Hajjaj [712 A.D.]" Although I do not want to favor any nationality, but the authentic Sunni collections contain many traditions which is in favor of the Persians. I just quote some of them here: Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 6.420 Narrated Abu Huraira: While we were sitting with the Prophet Surat al-Jumu'a was revealed to him, and when the Verse, "And He (Allah) has sent him (Muhammad) also to other (Muslims).....' (62:3) was recited by the Prophet, I said, "Who are they, O Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet did not reply till I repeated my question thrice. At that time, Salman al-Farisi was with us. So Allah's Apostle put his hand on Salman, saying, "Even if Faith were at (the place of) Ath-Thuraiya (pleiades, the highest star), then some men or man from these people (i.e. Salman's folk) would attain it." The next tradition right after the previous one: Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 6.421 Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said "Then some men from these people would attain it." Do you still have Doubts about who are these People of Black Flags? If you still have doubts about identity of these people, then just read the following "Sahih" tradition of Rasool Allah (saw), and all doubts will be removed. Insha-Allah. Sunnan Ibn Majah (Sunni Book Online Link) (A Sahih Hadith, see Authentication here and here): - حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا مُعَاوِيَةُ بْنُ هِشَامٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ صَالِحٍ، عَنْ يَزِيدَ بْنِ أَبِي زِيَادٍ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنْ عَلْقَمَةَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ بَيْنَمَا نَحْنُ عِنْدَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ إِذْ أَقْبَلَ فِتْيَةٌ مِنْ بَنِي هَاشِمٍ فَلَمَّا رَآهُمُ النَّبِيُّ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ اغْرَوْرَقَتْ عَيْنَاهُ وَتَغَيَّرَ لَوْنُهُ قَالَ فَقُلْتُ مَا نَزَالُ نَرَى فِي وَجْهِكَ شَيْئًا نَكْرَهُهُ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ إِنَّا أَهْلُ بَيْتٍ اخْتَارَ اللَّهُ لَنَا الآخِرَةَ عَلَى الدُّنْيَا وَإِنَّ أَهْلَ بَيْتِي سَيَلْقَوْنَ بَعْدِي بَلاَءً وَتَشْرِيدًا وَتَطْرِيدًا حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ قَوْمٌ مِنْ قِبَلِ الْمَشْرِقِ مَعَهُمْ رَايَاتٌ سُودٌ فَيَسْأَلُونَ الْخَيْرَ فَلاَ يُعْطَوْنَهُ فَيُقَاتِلُونَ فَيُنْصَرُونَ فَيُعْطَوْنَ مَا سَأَلُوا فَلاَ يَقْبَلُونَهُ حَتَّى يَدْفَعُوهَا إِلَى رَجُلٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ بَيْتِي فَيَمْلَؤُهَا قِسْطًا كَمَا مَلَؤُوهَا جَوْرًا فَمَنْ أَدْرَكَ ذَلِكَ مِنْكُمْ فَلْيَأْتِهِمْ وَلَوْ حَبْوًا عَلَى الثَّلْجِ ‏"‏ ‏ Narrated by Alqamah from Abdullah bin Masood: One day we were sitting with Holy Prophet(s) when some children from the house of Bani Hashim came there. When the Holy Prophet(s) saw them, tears welled up in his eyes and he became pale. Ibn Masood said that he told the Holy Prophet(s) "Your face reflects axiety".The Holy Prophet(s) stated:"Exalted God has granted us,the Ahlulbait, Hereafter instead of wordly pleasure. After me,soon my Ahlubait will face calamity,harship and misery till people having black flags will rise from East and seek justice,which will be denied them.They will wage war,they will be supported and will be given what they were demanding.They will not accept until it is handed over to one from our Ahlulbait (i.e. Mahdi) .He will fill the earth with justice as it was filled with unjustice.Whoever amongst you is alive at that period, should try to reach them even if he has to tread on ince in that persuit." ANALYSIS of This Hadith 1) People of Ahle Bait (family of Prophet) will face calamity. (While Nasibi Sapah Sahaba deny calamity of Fatima (salam Allah Alaiha), and also believe that YAZID is promised for Paradise due to fabricated hadith of First Naval War and Caesar's City (read it's fabrication here) 1.1) Rasool Allah started weeping upon the calmities of Ahle Bait, but here is Sapah Sahaba who never weeps for what happened to Hussain in Karbala. Just see who are Ahle Bait? Were it wives of Muhammad (saw) who were driven out of their homes ? Or were it progeny of Muhammad (saw) who faced calmities? 2) People will rise to assist them with BLACK FLAGS [Need we to tell you who are the holder of these Black Flags throughout whole History in all these passing centuries?] 3) These people are those, who are SAD FOR THE Calamites upon Ahle Bait (family of Prophet), and they love Ahle Bait above all. Need I still to tell you more who are the people who are indicated in these Ahadith of Mahdi? The Flag of Rasool Allah (saw) was of black colour We are quoting from authentic work of Ahl'ul Sunnah "Sunnan Abu Dawud", vol 3, page 22, Kitab-ul-Jihad, and "Tirmidhi Shareef", vol. 1, page 528: "There was a special flag of Rasool Allah (s), whose name was "Uqaab" and it consisted of curtain of Ayesha's house. And its colour was black." It is written in book Akseer-ul-Abadaat, page 263: " Ali told Malik-e-Ashtar that I have a Standard, which I never took out before. And it was the first Standard of Rasool Allah (saw) and he told me that a time will come when you will fight with rebels. Then Ali (as) took out that Standard, which became old. When people saw the Standard of Rasool (s), they started weeping in loud voice. And all those who found the way till Standard, they kissed it." So, where are those who declare the Black Flag of Shias to be an Innovation. Where are the those who declare kissing the flag and weeping in loud voice to be an Innovation and misguidance.
  15. Sunni Brothers, I've a question, please don't get angry or start cursing. This is just a question, I really want to learn. Why Sunnis love the known enemies of the Prophet (pbuh) ? Some examples of Sunnis loving the enemies of Prophet are: 1. Sunnis love Aisha who used to hurt, taunt, hate, waged war on Prophet's Ahlulbayt. 2. Sunnis love Umer who said he will kill the prophet right before he converted. 3. Sunnis love Khalid bin Walid who was the leader of the Kuffar in Battle of Ohud. 4. Sunnis love Muawiah who waged wars on prophet until the conquest of Makkah. 5. Sunnis love Abu Sufyan who was the leader of Kuffar of Makkah until the conquest of Makkah. Yes Prophet (pbuh) forgave them after the conquest of Makkah, but the question is, "Did they Forgive the Prophet for bringing Islam to the people"?
  16. This is the tale of a Pakistani mother and a wife who is neither a mother nor a wife anymore due to the Takfiris terrorist attack on a mosque in a systematic genocide committed by the blessing of the Pakistani state. This is a story of ONE Shia pakistani woman out of 50,000, whose husbands, fathers, and sons have been ripped into lifeless human body remains as suicide bombings have become the favorite mode of keeping Shia population of Pakistan in check and under subjugation. http://en.shiapost.com/2013/08/18/my-sacrifice-to-god-by-midhat-zaidi/ P.S. This article did deserve a separate space in SC but so far, I'll have to put it in ''General Politics and Current Issues".... Topic like this deserves a new topic called "Shia Genocide in Pakistan".
  17. Here's the live footage of the Shia masjid's security camera of the self exploder Wahabi attack on a Shia masjid in Pakistan right after this year's Eid prayer. -------http://youtu.be/jy9GRG2k0v8 MODs: Please create a separate topic under "Politics, Current and Regional Issues' -> "Shia Genocide in Pakistan" .The crisis in Pakistan is reaching beyond a day to day violence point and is turning into a permanent Shia persecution issue similar to Bahrain and Iraq.
  18. Sunni brothers, give me one example which shows that Aisha loved Sayeda Fatima Zahra (as) or any of the Ahlulbayt who Prophet (s) used to love, namely Ali, Hasan, Hussain (Salam on all of them and Lanat with their enemies). Here are a few which shows Aisha was jealous of Fatima Zahra (as). 1. Sayeda Fatima Zahra (as) passed away in 4 months after the demise of the Prophet (pbuh). Aisha did not let Fatima Zahra bury next to Prophet. 2. Prophet assigned his dearest wife Umm-e-Salma (ra) to take care of Fatima and her children in his absence. Prophet ignored Aisha and Hafsa knowing their jealousy of Fatima Zahra. 3. Aisha waged a vicious war on Fatima Zahra's husband Imam Ali, as soon as Imam Ali became the Khalifa. 4. Aisha made her servants and supporters to shoot arrow on the janaza of Imam Hassan, the first son of Fatima Zahra (as) when they were carrying the Janaza to bury Imam Hassan right next to the prophet. 5. Aisha used to show her open jealousy and used to ridicule the most favorite wife of Prophet, namely UmmulMomineen Khadijah who was the mother of Fatima Zahra (as). Bottom Line - Aisha used to hate everything about Fatima Zahra (as), she used to hate her, hate her husband Ali, hate her father Muhammad, hate her mother Khadijah, and hate her sons Hassan and Hussain. Aisha was a known hater. So my question is would she qualify for Jannah of which Sayeda Fatima is the leader of? Thoughts, concerns, comments welcome! Please don't make it a cursing thread. It is haram in Shia Islam to curse Aisha. It is highly mustahib to hate and curse the enemies of Allah, Prophet, and Ahlulbayt.
  19. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=298_1367335081 In the Sunnah of Khalid bin Walid - the rapists, his followers are raping these women of media, incidentally Al Jazeera is the same media which is helping them squarely. Imagine what would they be doing to helpless women and girls of Syrian towns under their control!!! ----------------------–-----–------------------------------------ A female Al Jazeera correspondent, who is covering the terrorist activities from different cities in Syria for months, was quickly moved to Qatar, after one of the commanders of Al Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group, raped her in Aleppo. Egyptian daily Al-Nahar reported that Ghada Oweis, Al Jazeera correspondent, has long been working alongside terrorist groups opposed to Bashar al-Assad in Aleppo to send reports to Qatari network. A few days ago on the invitation of one of the commanders of this Salafist group, she went to his office. Surprisingly however, the Al-Nusra militias did not allow her camera crews to enter the office. And they took Ms. Oweis by force and told the crews to come back for interview tomorrow. Al Jazeera correspondent was rushed out of Syria via Turkey, when it was discovered she was raped by the commander of Al-Nusra Front in Aleppo. She was transferred to Qatar later, she is emotionally in shock. Returning to Qatar, Ghada Oweis demanded justice and asked the senior leaders of Al-Nusra group to punish this commander. Reportedly Al Jazeera is trying to prevent the reporter from affirming the news by ways of pressure and payments of huge amount of money to maintain the good image of the terrorists fighting in Syria. The terrorist militias in Syria have been committing numerous acts of violence and shameless atrocities against the civilians, by using a Fatwa; issued by one of the Muftis of Salafists, that militias fighting in Syria can force women to ‘Jihad al Nikah’ (Girls must participate in "marriage" to fulfill their Jihad obligations in Syria).

  20. New evidence emerging from recently captured areas from where saudi funded FSA Salafis/Wahabis are on the run. Victorious SAA personnel found corpses of young women and children which were raped by Al-Nusra members after they were killed.
  21. Any scoop on why is Russia supporting Bashar and is opposed to Wahabi terrorism? What is that they have to gain?
  22. consider this testomony of Hillary and now consider their latest news of support to Al qaeda US to Supply Armed Groups in Syria with USD 10 Million http://sana.sy/eng/2...4/13/477163.htm and this The al-Nusra front in Syria has officially announced that it is part of al-Qaeda. Even before the announcement, everyone knew it was al-Qaeda. So why is it being armed to the teeth with US-supplied weapons, and given training and strategic and diplomatic support by the US government? http://www.presstv.i...eda-terrorists/ What is hillary up to now? repeating history?
  23. (salam) There are three stories. 1. Taliban shoot young girl Malala Yousafzai on her head after identifying her when she was returning home after attending school. She is in critical condition. 2. Taliban attached a bus returning from Kohat to Parachinaar carrying young girls from Kohat to Parachinaar who were returning home after attending M.Sc/M.A exams. They threw acid on their faces and injured them seriously. Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf and religious parties say that dialogue with Taliban is the only solution and Taliban are doing all this due to Drone Attacks by U.S.A. Sorry i missed one more story. 3. A dog in our street bites passerbys daily. Two days back two of my family members were coming to my house when the dog attacked them and bite them without any provocation. I have cotacted Imran Khan and PTI members and religious parties. They have advised me to have dialogue with the dog. May be he understand the situation and do not harm others.
  24. (salam) I congratulate my Shia brothers on this beautiful occassion of recognizing Khawarij of this time. Obviously a person who remained advocate of Kharjiites is a big scholar before Salafi/Wahabi thugs and they proudly follow this person. Now obviously if this person praised Kharjiites in his life time then the todays Salafi/Wahabi clowns are Kharjiites of this time. ibn Taymiyah says in defending Kharijites that: “… Kharijites are from the greatest people in regard to prayer, fasting and recitation of the Holy Quran and they had army and military camp. They are firm in religion inwardly and outwardly.”[1] He says that: “Kharijites are more truthful, religious and virtuous than Shia, we have not heard that Kharijites intentionally tell lies, but they are from the most truthful people.”[2] He also says that: “Kharijites are wiser, more truthful and more serious about following the truth than Shia …, many Shi’ite leaders are polytheists and heathens.”[3] In answer to this matter, we should say that: how does ibn Taymiyah describe Kharijites as faithful and religious ones inwardly and outwardly? while if anyone studies the statements of the Companions in the folds of books, he will realize that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) has charged them with helping Amir al- Muminin Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) in all wars and ordered them to join Ali (a.s.) in fighting against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates. Some of these statements are as follows: 1- Abu Sa’id Khidri says that: “the Prophet (a.s.) ordered us to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates. We asked: O Messenger of Allah! You invited us to fight against these people; we should do this by following whom? The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: Ali ibn Abi Talib.”[4] 2- Abu al- Yaqzan Amar ibn Yasir says that: “the Prophet (s.a.w.) ordered me to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[5] He has also quoted that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “O Ali! A cruel group murders you soon, while you are with the right, so if anyone does not help you at that day, he is not from me.”[6] 3- Khalid Asri says that: “I heard from Amir al- Muminin in the day of Nahruwan battle who said that: “the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) ordered me to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[7] 4- Abu Ayyub Ansari said in the age of Umar ibn Khattab’s caliphate that: “the Prophet (s.a.w.) has ordered us to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[8] 5- Abdullah ibn Mas`ud says that: “the Prophet (s.a.w.) ordered Ali (a.s.) to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[9] 6- Ali ibn Rabi’a Walibi says that: “I heard from Ali (a.s.) who said that: “the Prophet (s.a.w.) made me a pledge to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates after him.”[10] 7- Abu Sa’id Mawla Rubab says that: “I head from Ali (a.s.) who said that: “I have been ordered to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[11] 8- Sa’d ibn Ibadah says that: “Ali (a.s.) said to me: “I have been ordered to fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[12] 9- Anas ibn Malik has quoted from his father from Imam Ali (a.s.) that he said: “I have been charged to fight against three groups: those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates.”[13] 10- Abdullah ibn Mas`ud says that: “the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) left his house and went to the house of Umma Salmah, then Ali (a.s.) came. The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “O Umma Salmah! I swear to Allah that this person will fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates after me.”[14] 11- ibn Abi al- Hadid says that: “it is quoted from the Prophet (s.a.w.) who said to Ali (a.s.):[15] ÊÞÇÊá ÈÚÏÇáäǘËä æ ÇáÞÇÓØä æ ÇáãÇÑÞ “You will fight against those who break their covenants, deviators and apostates after me”. The meaning of “those who break their covenants” is the people of Jamal [battle], the meaning of “deviators” is cruel ones, that is the people of Saffin [battle] and followers of Muawiyah, and the meaning of “apostates” is that very Kharijites and the people of Nahruwan [battle].[16] References [1] - Minhaj al- Sunnah, vol. 4, p. 37 and 38.
