  1. Hi, I live in the UK and I study Law and sociology at university. Can anyone tell me a link to a website or any information on how to get entry to Qom Hawza, I am looking to start full time education at Qom hawza after I finish my Law degree. Also can you tell me if the education and accommodation is free or do I have to pay. I heard it was free and they give you accommodation as well as spending money. the qomicis.org website isn't working for me I don't know why, if you could tell me why I would be grateful. Thanks everyone.
  2. Salam We have all heard that taqlid is in fiqh but not in beliefs (theology), but why this distinction? Can anyone point me to arguments for this distinction? Thanks in advance
  3. Hey, I wanted to create this thread and, as a Baha'i, I am interested in creating a HEALTHY debate about whether or not Baha'u'llah and the Bab are truly prophets. I would request from all those who would like to comment to not insult anyone, including Baha'u'llah, the Bab. This is meant to be a healthy conversation. FYI, I speak perfect Arabic so I have no problem explaining things in Arabic or verses, etc. from the Baha'i writings.
  4. I would like a recommendation for books, outside of the Noble Qur'an, for a non muslim that is considering Islam and becoming a shia in particular. I am particularly looking for good books on Prayer, SHia Spirituality, Lifestyle, and Theology. Is there a good english translation of shia hadith in a hardbound set?
  5. Almost every Thursday night, my parents light a candle, bring some drinks (usually just milk mixed with rooh afza) and we recite Surah Al-Fatihah once followed by Surah Al-Ikhlas three times. We do this once for the 14 infallibles, and again for our deceased relatives. Then, we drink from the milk, and put out the candle. There are some variations to this, but this is usually what we do every Thursday night. My mother calls this "nazr". I have lots of questions about this. Firstly, why is it called "nazr"? Isn't this word based off the arabic word "nadhr", which means a vow? But it doesn'
  6. Hello All, I've been stalking the shiachat.com silently for a while and I though it's time I actually get in conversations instead of my ideas eating up my mind in silents. Sorry if my english writing is weird, I'm a native arabic speaker (not that I'm better in writing arabic tho lol) I usually have hard time conveying ideas so I'll just try best. I grew up a Shia muslim in a relativily religious family in SA. We didn't grow up with emphasis on culture but more on religion, so I am grateful for that. Both my parents and my siblings have higher education and my dad is a reader of r
  7. What are the characteristics of those whom Allah loves and hates? For more than a billion Muslims around the globe, the Qurān reproduces God’s very own words. To find our answer whom are loved and what constitutes their important characteristics, let's turn the pages of the Quran. I searched the Quran with the keywords of یحب [whom He loves] and لایحب [whom He dislikes] and the result is somehow noteworthy. The numbers in the brackets signify the number of Chapters and Verses of the Quran respectively. In the light of the Quranic verses, one can find who are to be loved and who are to be
  8. Anyone know about theology Irja or Murji'ah?
  9. Assalamu Aleykum Wa Rahmat Allah Wa Barakatuh I am a Muslim born agnostic, my father is Sunni and my mother Shiite. I have a lot of questions on how Shias view certain topics. My first question is on Fatima bint al rasul, I have heard a lot of claims from Sunnis that according to Shiites, Omar ibn al-Khattab broke Fatima's ribs. Is this claim true? If yes, could I please be informed of the historical text? Moreover, what is the reason behind the conflict between Shiites and Sunnis? My second question is on the Caliphate: Would Shiites live under a Sunni caliphate? The third o
  10. Hope you are all well. Hopefully someone can shed light on this topic that I have found elsewhere which I myself would like an answer on too, using Hadith or Quranic verses. My questions are: Why create us to worship him if he doesn't need our worship Why create us to worship him if he doesn't want our worship Why create us to give us him mercy, if he doesn't want to give us your mercy Why create us to give us him mercy, if he doesn't need to give us your mercy That looks like 4 questions, doesn't it? But they all boil down to a single question which is t
  11. If God created the universe, then who created God? And who created the creator of God? Dear Readers, The question seems mind-blowing and thus has been at the center of the most heated philosophical and theological debates in Islam. To solve the very problem, I would like to draw your kind attention to the following points that can easily solve the problem raised: A) The philosophical principles are always all-inclusive and do not undergo any exception of any kind. Hence, the impossibility of ‘effect without cause’ and ‘infinite regress’ are of those philosophical principles that
  12. If God loves unconditionally, how can sin exist? Indeed, Allah, the Compassionate, loves all His creatures but not unconditionally. If we accept the unconditional love of Allah to all creatures, irrespective their piety, then can we talk of Allah’s wisdom and justice. Allah two different kinds of mercy A) Common, B) Particular. The first category includes everyone but the second is exclusive of the most virtuous and pious ones. For sure, Allah loves the sinner servants to return to Allah and make themselves purified of the major and minor sins. But it does not necessarily imply that Allah
  13. When we talk about God, we either address His Essence or His Attributes and His Actions. The first category rests beyond everyone’s reach, even the Divine Prophets and Great Saints can never have any access to the Essence of Allah, the Infinite. The reason is clear. To finite beings, it is impossible to surround or encircle the Infinite Existent, thus, they can't and won't have any say about Him! Furthermore, the semantic and linguistic variables play decisive part in this respect, for the human beings are always accustomed of employing finite concepts when they express themselves and the
  14. There was a question 'Are Shias Muslim? If so what's the evidence?', My humble response was as follows: It is as if one poses questions that Are Sunnis Muslim? Are Catholics and Protestants Christian? Are days and nights parts of time? Do the black and white colors fall in the spectrum of colors? If so what's the evidence? Anyhow, to address the above-mentioned question precisely and to know whether or not Shias are Muslims, one should know in advance what does Muslim literally mean? What does make an individual a Muslim? Or what are the most integral parts of Islamic belief s
  15. How can you trust Allah, the Almighty? Sometimes when I ride the motor bike, I have the honor and privilege to be accompanied by many including my little daughter who leans and relies on my chest. There she is as calm and relaxed as if nothing is happening and we are not moving either. She often turns her head back and sends me lovely laughter and giggles. She rarely falls asleep on my chest while I am riding the bike. In such moments, the point that clicks my mind is her unconditional and absolute reliance on her father. Her complete reliance and trust makes her unworried and satisfied.
  16. I cursed and mocked Allah, will Allah forgive me? I was a short-term atheist this summer. Whenever I got angry I cursed Allah and mocked muslims. But now I returned to Islam and I pray him everyday to forgive me. I know it's a very big sin and I regret it so much. Will he forgive me? My humble response to the question is: Why not? Allah, the Almighty, in various verses of the Holy Quran has explicitly promised us all that He will forgive those who commit sins. His all-Inclusive and all-Embracing mercy requires that such sins and even bigger than that are to be forgiven easi
  17. From an Islamic perspective, can you justify a supposed sin expecting God to "understand" the situation? A hypothetical example I can provide is, (e.g) if a person “stole” money that they were owed, and never brought it up again? If a person cheated in a test, but they didn’t want to pursue career related to that subject anyways? If a person lied about something to prevent any unnecessary anger? etc? My humble Response to the above-mentioned question is: Allah, the All-Knowing and the All-Wise, knows best all these possible situations and scenarios the human being will face in t
  18. There is a question: As a Sunni Muslim can you explain what Shia Muslims believe and why? My Humble response to the question is: It is worthwhile to note that the question posed seems loose and general; for it includes too many conflicting issues that cannot be addressed properly and briefly. Anyhow, Islam is the last divinely-sent religion. Shia and Sunni Muslims are the two main and major streams of Islam on the whole. During the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his family), all Arab tribes had gathered under the umbrella of Prophet and had relatively fo
  19. Do good non-Muslims get sent to hell? First. We must clarify who do we mean by the word 'non-Muslims'? The term 'non-Muslims' includes many groups of people such as 'the people of the book' i.e. the Jews, the Christians, the other adherents of the pre-Islamic heavenly-sent religions, pagans, atheists, disbelievers and etc. Second. To have a methodical and systematic treatment of the issue, the question must be addressed from two different angles: A) 'confessional' and B) 'non-confessional'. By the word confessional I mean from religious [Islamic] point of view and by the word 'non-co
  20. https://www.al-islam.org/discursive-theology-volume-1-dr-ali-rabbani-gulpaygani/lesson-6-argument-contingency Can someone explain this to me in a laymen fashion. How does the second law of thermodynamics prove god
  21. This is Seyyed Kamal's view on the importance to differentiate between what he calls tashayu' 'aqaedi (theological shiism), and tashayu' tareekhi (historic shiism): When looking at all the different theological schools that exist today (school of Ahlul Bayt, Ash'ari, Mu'tazali, Zaidi, school of Ibn Taymiyah, etc), we must look at the sources they resort to to deduce their religious concepts, which are: 1) The Quran (the word of God), and the valid hadith/narrations (words and deeds of the Infallibles) 2) The Intellect ('aql): not what we use as a tool to think and understa
  22. This is one of the oldest theological questions around, but I'm not a fan of any of the solutions I've heard. Assuming there is a God, is an omniscient, omnipotent, and good God consistent with a world where innocent people suffer? Since indisputably innocent people are hurt, get sick, and are killed, (like babies and children), we know that God doesn't stop bad things from happening to good/innocent people. Below are some of the explanations I've heard, but I'd any others that you might have. There are a number of simple ways to explain this: -a) God could be omniscient and good, but be
  23. So I want to start reading the Qur'an and Hadith's are there translations (English) written by Shi'a scholars that someone could recommend? And are there books about the Imams also written by a Shi'a in English? I really don't want website links I would rather have a physical book I can take with me places. Books on Shi'a theology would be nice too.
  24. The Howza ilmiya of England receives Dr. Shomali for some lectures and lucky for us, the Islamic Centre England has uploaded all of the lectures on Akhlaq, Islamic Theology etc. Please have a visit to ICEL, the YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/islamiccentre1998/playlists
  25. My God! What a book! It is a must read!!!! It tackles so many question on God. This is just the first volume! This text deals with a set of ideological and scholastic questions based upon Islamic theology from the perspective of Shī‘ah Imāmiyyah school of thought. Reason and revelation have been the final reference and arbiter in decisions and evaluations. A series of lessons surrounding recognition of God is presented. http://www.al-islam.org/discursive-theology-volume-1-dr-ali-rabbani-gulpaygani
