  1. Letter 4 U | Ayatollah Khamenei letter for western Youths Imam Khamenei letter against Bin laden letter (a campaign for spreading truth of Shia Islam against Zionism & rogue state of Israel & wahhabism) please everyone share the letter (4U/for you) among everyone who you can for defending the truth & Palestine (Palestinians) against sheer evil the rogue state of Israel & global zionism.
  2. The grandson of Malcolm X who has been supposedly “beaten in a club to death” after trying to propagate Shia Islam to the Mexicans? one who suffered from supposed serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and psychosis, eventually explaining in his court case that, And after seeking an escape from the current situation he was in pertaining to living with his grandmother he, supposedly burned down the house and caused her death? His motives were doing anything bad in order to be sent back to his mother. Being arrested for stealing $100 dollars, going to a juvenile detention center, and all in all just living a disgruntled and troubled life from the cradle to the grave? I find such an account highly improbable and I cannot fathom it, for he was a well-spoken, sensible activist, and above all a revert to Shia Islam through reaching his own respective conclusion. It is difficult for me to take such accounts as factual for they seek to detract from what he was and what he could have been, which evidently was the reason why he was assassinated, I mean can you imagine a Malcolm X for the Shia? Respected brothers and sisters what are your thoughts and takes on such claims, do you have any evidence that furthermore substantiates them or is there a truth that has been veiled by slander. let this be the start of clearing the name of this young man who was murdered in cold blood and then slandered ever so viciously and unjustly. or the conclusion in which we will be able to arrive a common consensus to where the fact of the matter is.

  3. I don’t know how to make this sound less misogynistic (I’m sorry), but do women actualise their purpose in life by worshipping Allah through servitude to their husbands? I mean, based on this tradition, can’t we say that women were created to serve their husbands and to be “obedient” to them. In another tradition attributed to Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), the advantages or freedoms that men have in the jurisprudential sense could be attributed to the way Hawwa was created from the leftover dust of Adam: Is this why women are not allowed to hold certain positions of prominence in the dunyawi sense, where they cannot be judges and are primarily supposed to be adornments for their husbands (based on what I have read in other threads)? According to the Sunni jurist al-Qurṭubī, all women are not supposed to go out of their homes unnecessarily, based on Qur’an 33:33. According to former member Ibn al-Hussain: The member also elucidated that such seemingly misogynistic views of women have been the view of both Shia and Sunni scholars for centuries, and that it is inevitably irreconcilable with modernity. Further, in one report of Risalat al Huquq, Imam Zayn al Abidin (عليه السلام) says that “you must treat her [your wife] with compassion, since she is your prisoner (asir) whom you feed and clothe” (another version of this report does not contain this line). Another tradition (from Facebook) demarcates the preference of men over women: I feel like I should quote this verse now because I can see how this thread will bother a lot of my brothers and sisters: Perhaps I should also add that both women and men are creations of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), they both manifest His beautiful attributes, and that they complement one another. @Mohammad313Ali @Northwest @shia farm girlthoughts, brothers and sister?
  4. Many if not all of us seek to be constantly illuminated by beneficial information pertaining to the many categories of what is known, for me and the many seekers of knowledge what do you respected brothers/sisters advise and what are great plans to implement in ones journey of obtaining knowledge. I remember reading an article published about one of the contents of the lectures of Ali Shariati and how he emphasized the importance of having a clear and direct path in achieving ones goals, he stated that although the genius of Socrates is unparalleled a French philosopher whos intellectual caliber is miniscule in comparison to Socrates was able to take Europe out of its dark age, due to certain folly theories proposed by Socrates were taken as factual for many centuries. Highlighting the necessity of correct and factual evidence and how it stands unwavering even in the face of one of history's greatest philosophical giant, he then went to draw an analogy between two individuals in a race to the similitude of a genius and laymen, the swift runner and the average runner both seek the same end destination, however the average runner is on a clear and direct pathway to the finish line, whereas the swift runner has to undergo rocky roads and many deterrents in his way to the same finish line. Therefore respected brothers/sisters on this pathway to knowledge and truth I seek to equip myself with any of the maps, blueprints, tools, and what may otherwise aid in clearing the path for me. Your advice and inputs are greatly appreciated.
  5. The Ahlul Bayt as beacons of guidance as those who have the knowledge of the book, and as those whose knowledge is unparalleled must certainly have undergone a series of debates between the people of their time in which many philosophers, atheists, et al. Objected to their beliefs and the truth they preached. And as a result of those debates they were unquestionably able to annihilate the opposition with their eloquence and logical/rational consistency. To a point where those who were able to witness or read such arguments and defenses proposed by the Imams no matter how biased and ingrained their ideologies are would be forced to succumb to the undeniable truth presented by the princes of truth. Taking all such into consideration I as an individual when reading about the characteristics of such infallible beings who precede our limited nature of understanding and of spirituality must have certainly laid down arguments which are so irrefutable and undeniable to an extent where if a thinker no matter how decisive, biased, and skeptical would admit defeat or otherwise proclaim Kuffar I.e declaration of objection to evident truth after it being evident. Now I am by no means questioning or raising any objections, but I am perplexed as to why many of the debates recorded (that I’ve read of) seem to be those in which objections either from the common men of varying beliefs or the elementary speculative atheists are raised, and the refutations to such objections don’t leave intellectuals of the highest repute satiated. One can quote the varying Islamic thinkers we have and those who have been inspired by the Ahlul Bayt and the profound literature introduced by such thinkers, but individuals as such operated from a biased position of gratitude when presenting their arguments and defenses. Can I please be provided with sources of debates led strictly by the Ahlul Bayt which showcase the highest and most distinguished case of logical consistency and rationality with the absence and or need for the reliance of blind faith to hold the foundation for such arguments. I reiterate those with unparalleled knowledge must have unparalleled arguments. Now I understand the objections are many so all I ask is to be provided with the best piece of argumentative literature in defense or question of any matter of creed whatsoever. And with all honestly the debate with Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq and Abu Shakir only scrapes the surface, of what I believe these Immaculate beings are capable of introducing and I wish to marvel at it, so please share and enlighten me.
  6. Respected brothers and sisters if you had the opportunity to ask Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) any question whatsoever possessing any scientific, jurisprudential, ethical, moral significance what would you ask. it can be as many questions as you want and mainly those ones you truly wish to be answered, and no matter the caliber of the question the commander of the faithful will indeed have an answer. perhaps some of the brothers or sisters could also aid in answering any of those questions which you pose and if not those questions can allow us to furthermore ponder and postulate over their significance.
  7. In my opinion, Khomeini and the Islamic Republic have done more to destroy the true nature of the Shia faith than any group of people in history. Their compulsion of religion, e.g. hijab for women is specifically outlawed in the Holy Quran. They cling to power through murder and repeated human rights atrocities, again outlawed in the Holy Quran. The clerical class continue to enrich themselves while oppressing the people. Their books of fiqh are full of contradictions and much hypocrisy. These so-called marja only care to increase their power, while stealing the money of the people. They have pushed so many people away from our beautiful religion, and insha'Allah they will receive their due punishments and there will be a special place in jahannam for those who used the name of The Lord to further their personal agendas. You only need to visit Imam Ali's (peace upon him and his progeny) house in Kufa to witness the humility with which a true leader lived his life. I'm likely going to get banned for this. Which is probably a good thing anyway since I could easily be spending the time in ibadat. Ya Ali!
  8. Any human being with a soul should condemn and despise how the IDF treats Palestinians. But just as how we as Muslims know not all of us are barbaric and terrorist like animals, not all Israeli Jews want to kill and slaughter innocent Palestinians and want to control and world through a banking system, (some of you guys think that lol). Besides many American Muslims say free Palestine but live in America which is a gigantic version of Israel, that's hypocrisy. Lets be honest here, the Israeli Jews are going no where I think its time for both sides to sit down and compromise a two state solution. Also Many Palestinian men say on camera "death to the Jews lowest of creation" and many other similar slogans so they're not all that innocent. Also they suicide bomb killing innocent civilians which is absolutely haram. So stop saying death to Israel how would you like it if the Israeli people said on camera "death to Iran the cancer of the world" You guys would be furious and say this and that. So sit down for once and remember, Not all Muslims are terrorists (which is absolutely true) AND not all Israeli Jews want to kill and slaughter Palestinians (which is also absolutely true). Salam to all of you, inshallah there will be peace in the world
  9. @Salsabeel @Kazemi ٦_١٥٥ وَهَٰذَا كِتَٰبٌ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ مُبَارَكٌۭ فَٱتَّبِعُوهُ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ 006:155 And this Book that We have sent down is a blessed one; so follow it, and be Godwary so that you may receive [His] mercy. ٧_٢ كِتَٰبٌ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ فَلَا يَكُن فِى صَدْرِكَ حَرَجٌۭ مِّنْهُ لِتُنذِرَ بِهِۦ وَذِكْرَىٰ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ 007:002 [This is] a Book that has been sent down to you—so let there be no disquiet in your heart on its account that you may warn thereby—and as an admonition for the faithful. So Quran (the book) sent down is an admonition for the faithful and it should be followed. ٣٩_٥٥ وَٱتَّبِعُوٓا۟ أَحْسَنَ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُم مِّن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ بَغْتَةًۭ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ 039:055 Follow the best of what has been sent down to you from your Lord, before the punishment overtakes you suddenly while you are unaware.’ ١٣_١ بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ الٓمٓر ۚ تِلْكَ ءَايَٰتُ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ ۗ وَٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ٱلْحَقُّ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ 013:001 In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. Alif, Lam, Mim, Ra. These are the signs of the Book. That which has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth, but most people do not believe [in it]. Most people do not believe the truth that has been sent down by the Lord (Allah swt.) ٣٤_٦ وَيَرَى ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُوا۟ ٱلْعِلْمَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ هُوَ ٱلْحَقَّ وَيَهْدِىٓ إِلَىٰ صِرَٰطِ ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلْحَمِيدِ 034:006 Those who have been given knowledge see that what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth and [that] it guides to the path of the All-mighty, the All-laudable. ١٣_١٩ ۞ أَفَمَن يَعْلَمُ أَنَّمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ٱلْحَقُّ كَمَنْ هُوَ أَعْمَىٰٓ ۚ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُو۟لُوا۟ ٱلْأَلْبَٰبِ 013:019 Is someone who knows that what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth, like someone who is blind? Only those who possess intellect take admonition ٥_٦٧ ۞ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ۖ وَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُۥ ۚ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِى ٱلْقَوْمَ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ 005:067 O Messenger! Communicate that which has been sent down to you from your Lord, and if you do not, you will not have communicated His message, and Allah shall protect you from the people. Indeed Allah does not guide the faithless lot. ٤٧_٣ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ ٱتَّبَعُوا۟ ٱلْبَٰطِلَ وَأَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّبَعُوا۟ ٱلْحَقَّ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ ٱللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ أَمْثَٰلَهُمْ 047:003 That is because the faithless follow falsehood, and the faithful follow the truth from their Lord. That is how Allah draws comparisons for mankind. Thus it provides sufficient evidence that the believers follow that has been revealed and sent to the prophet saaw at Ghadeer and others do not. (To be continued)
  10. Salaam brothers/sisters, I would really appreciate it if i could get some perspective and unbiased opinions about the path I am about to take. I am 22 years old living in the U.K. and have recently graduated and currently undergoing a placement year as part of my development before I undertake my masters. I am at a stage in my life where I am more concerned with the state of my akirah rather than the dunya. Having said that it hasn't always been like this and I'm very much early on in my journey. I feel a sense of conflict in myself and my beliefs. I question at times what we've been taught and how authentic our views are not shia in particular but the entire Ummah.I want to search for the truth by studying Islam throughly but as any young Muslim my age, the world doesn't work like that. I'm afraid of not being able to support my mother and father, if I leave to study I may be gone for a very long time and all that time they may struggle. I also feel as if it may be unjust for me to rush something like this and jump in head first but I've come to realise if I follow through with my career 100% I could provide for my family and live a very normal life but I would never reach fufillment and fall into a deeper depression, my heart would forever be searching for answers. I want to make a difference, I want to help spread truth and bring people together. So I wanted some opinions and a discussion as to what you would advise me to do if you've had a similar experience, where do I start?

    Hello, mr dahesh has 1000s saying he did miracles many many testimonies, of many miracles crazy ones raise the dead be in diff places at once all sorts. My imaan is lowered he started daheshism how can i refute i need yaqeen my imaan is low i am having doubts. Can anyone refute him and please help me i have nowhere else to turn.
  12. Salam all, I have been reading a lot of posts here and have noticed that people, and not just here, make a lot of assumptions, generalizations and make claims without backing them up with references or evidences, especially in the sunni/shia forum, and hence end up with a lot of baseless beliefs. i think we would all agree that a historical narration, as opposed to a hadith, is not a source of religion, or is not hujjah, unless it has an authentic chain. the reason for that is that if the shi'a bring 10 historical accounts of the evils of "sahaba" or supporting any of their views, the sunnis can bring 100 historical accounts to back their view of islam. and hence i believe making claims or forming beliefs based on historical accounts with no sanad/chain, is not only incorrect, but would lead to useless arguments. if you disagree, then you disagree with the whole science of hadith, as we simply do not take a saying of the prophet pbuh without a chain or without authenticating the chain. some people say, well there MUST be a reason the accounts are there in history, like, there HAS to be SOME truth to them. to those people, i say: the same can be said about sunni historical accounts. there MUST be SOME truth to their accounts as well. but at the end of the day, both of us will be doing nothing more than assuming and wishful thinking. So, to summarize, if you are saying something about your religion, make sure that you would be willing to risk your akhirah for it and can back it up with evidence/reference, cause you never know what you might be held accountable for. and let this be a sort of notice for any of my future posts as well, that i will neither entertain nor respond to any claims/responses based on assumption/prejudice/emotion. someone wise once said, there is no place for emotions in the field of knowledge. salam.
  13. You see now in the poisonous Western Dictatorship countries, more and more things that are and should be considered abnormal are becoming normal. Euthanasia is one of them. A hot topic right now is the legalisation of assisted suicide (euthanasia) and when this happens, since the west is trying to destroy any moral values; as time goes by they will increase its use, and broaden its reason for use. For example, the use of euthanasia was for palliative patients, now, its crazily considered to people with a perceived "mental illness", after it will be legal for whatever reason and this is the progressive push for all the corruption in the west from the 'leaders' of bad intentions in this dajjalic system. Victims of this brainwash are told they do not have that long to live, or have the option to kill themselves if they wish. Medicine, or proper care was considered the only option for saving a life or controlling symptoms, never was it to intentionally murder someone. Patients that know someone cares about them (statistically) do not chose this option in legalised countries. However, others (since this society is so disconnected) have chosen it since being talked into it in some countries where they know they can do it, because a person is considered a "pain" and money waster for the health department #ResourcesOverHumanity. Is this what life is? The value of life is changing in the western definition, and it is time we know within ourselves the Islamic definition and be lanterns of guidance in such dark times. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِنْ نَسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۚ أَنْتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ "Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people." صدق الله العلي العظيم .الإمامُ الصّادقُ عليه السلام : مَن قَتَلَ نفسَه مُتَعمِّداً فهُو في نارِ جَهنَّمَ خالِداً فيها Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'Whoever intentionally kills himself will dwell in the Hellfire forever.' كتاب من لا يحضره الفقيه : 4 / 95 / 5163 al-Faqih, v. 4, p. 95, no. 5163 {Let's see, first homosexuality becoming legal, bad values being common within the youth, are all corrupt agendas for the western dictator governments. Think about it and be against it. As there was someone that once said, if you are not for it, nor with it, you are with it to some extent.] اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد وعجل فرجهم
  14. Salam warahma. My brothers, we need to speak truth about Aisha R. As a sunni, i have always respected and loved her. I recently learnt about the battle of jamal and just about all authentic narrations pertaining to it. To my knowledge, Aisha R went out with forces purely with the intention of reconciliation and reformation due to her status as Ummul Momineen. She did not question Ali Rs caliphate nor have the slightest intent of rebelling against him. She only went out thinking she could bring reform amongst people for Uthman Rs martyrdom. An agreement was reached between the army of Ali R and of Aisha, Talha and Zubayr R where both parties slept comfortably(based on the consensus of many historians, scholars and analysts). It was the people of fitna who deliberately consulted one another and ignited the fighting once more, causing both parties to think they betrayed each other. When Ali R recieved news of Zubayr Rs death, he cried as he saw his sword, saying 'how many times has this sword protected Rasoolallah?' Aisha R was not even on the battlefield the way people like Ammar Nakshawani(who i find very dishonest) make it out to be. She didnt even know that there was fighting going on until Ka'ab ibn sur told her to come out on her camel with the hope of stopping the fighting due to her status. As soon as Ka'ab R comes out, instructed by Aisha to judge by the Quran, the people of fitna realized that they will be exposed, and as a result shot arrows at Ka'ab R and went for the camel. Both Aisha and Ali R are yelling to stop the fighting and it is at this point that Aisha R realizes who the murderers of Uthman and the real evil people were. She prayed out loud saying Ya Allah curse the murderers of Uthman, the armies heard this and said it, and Ali R did the same upon hearing it When the battle ended, Ali R entered upon her and said Salam, asking how she is. She said Wsalam and said she is fine. Ali R said may Allah have mercy upon you and she said the same. Ali R found two men insulting Aisha ( much like extreme shias today). He ordered Qa'Qa R to lash them 100 times. When Aisha left Basra, Ali R walked out with her for miles, accompanying her bidding her farewell. Aisha spoke to the people of Basra saying 'oh children, some of us have transgressed against each other because of delaying and hastening(delaying to give bay'ah to Ali R, and rushing to avenge Uthman Rs death), so do not transgress one another. We are neither enemies to Ali nor is Ali an enemy to us. Wallahi there is nothing between me and Ali except what small quarrels ensues between a woman and her in laws. With me, he is the best of people' this is spoken publicly to the people of Basra Ali R responds by saying 'oh people wallahi she has spoken the truth, nothing was between us except the small quarrels between family members' he then followed with, and this my brothers is very important, 'she is the wife of your prophet in this life and the next' When Aisha was on her death bed, Abdullah ibn abbas entered and praised her, saying 'you are the wife of rasoolallah in this life and the next, and you are the one Allah proclaimed innocence of from the heavens'. Surely if Aisha was set to go to Hell fire (nauzubillah) as some shias say, wouldn't abdullah ibn abbas encourage her to repent? No, rather he praised her and said she is the wife of muhammad saw in this life and the next, as Ali R said. I urge you not to speak negatively of a woman Allah proclaimed innocence of in the Quran, a woman who played games and ate with the prophet pbuh, who would shower with him and who held his head in her lap when he passed away. My dear brothers, it is not as simple as some critiques make it out to be, i.e, aisha waging war vs Ali r. This is not true and we must be sincere. Please please please learn authentic narrations regarding this event, along with all of Aisha and Muhammad Saws beautiful marriage life.
  15. Introduction - I am Australian, a white Anglo-Saxon Christian. I have been researching Islam for about a year and a half and am very seriously considering converting to Shia Islam. I have come along away at first i was a bigot and growing up here in a climate of anti Islam Hysteria and the rise of Terrorism i cursed everything about Islam it's origins and its prophet things that i have now come to regret saying. In Australia we've been exposed from a young age right-wing channels trying to paint the world as 'Us V. Them' which obviously shaped my political views before i started researching myself into what the people who adhere to Islam believe. (Search 'A Current Affair Islam' and see what Australians are exposed to) At first trying to do complete an independent research i was bombarded with hateful messages from Anti-Islam websites or Wahhabi/Salafi websites but looking into this realized there are different sects and schools of thought within Islam. I found myself now researching into the divide of Sunni and Shia and the life of the Prophet in general. So what did i find and what was my conclusion after a year and half of research. I believe the companions who became the Caliphs after the Prophet did not follow the values and ethics taught by the prophet and the Quran. There are stories of violence and evils committed by both Umar and Abu Bakr which i have found appalling but Ali (First Imam/Fourth Caliph) I believe very much did follow the true Islamic values, his tolerance to religious minorities, kindness and high morals were in my opinion like those of the prophet and values taught by Islam and is the true successor to the prophet. I have respect for the Sunni muslims but today they have seem to have become corrupted with funds being shared around the world by the Saudi's, threatening the peace and at the same time supported by the U.S. and unfortunately my own country Australia. There is a real double standard in the western world, we are so hell bent on trying to take out Iran claiming they are a threat to world peace but it is truly the Saudi's who are killing and supporting horrific Salafi/Wahhabi militant groups. Question Time - 1) If i converted to Islam (Twelver) what would change when it comes to interactions with my christian families?, What becomes of Christmas, Funerals and other religious gathering adhering to Roman Catholicism. What can i or can't participate in? 2) My Family who i know for fact would be very accepting of me changing religions, they would accept me no matter what. My question is would God (I know only he can judge) based on Islamic beliefs accept my family into paradise if they're Catholics. It was my parents who knew i was disillusioned with my faith told me to go out and discover a new spiritual outlook on life. (I personally never thought it would be Islam ) and so i did and now we are here. 3) What evidence is there that Muhammad was a prophet, how can i be sure? These three questions that i know may seem 'amateur' to some Islamic experts but are vital questions to me in whether or not i will accept Islam. I hope you all are having a blessed day and i am excited to hear all your responses.
  16. Once upon a time I used to be quite strong in my beliefs but as the years have gone on, meeting new people and having new discussions has left me lost and aimless in terms of the 'path' that I follow. Of course I am Muslim - in that I believe in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, his Prophets (pbut), his angels and the Holy Book. However as of late I have really been struggling to find my feet either in the shia thought of school or sunni (originally raised as a shia) - there are some aspects which just don't sit right with me and I can feel my heart reject it - but then I worry that the truth is merely being rejected as a result of my own unworthiness. I fear for my afterlife as I know there are certain elements within shia'ism that, should you not adhere to, will cause you grief in the next world i.e. belief in Imam Mahdi. My heart feels heavy, confused and lost. I want to find the truth but I feel whenever I try to it's as if I am knocking my head on a wall. Does anyone have any advice or ever been in a similar situation?
  17. Any country that is not under the American government regime, is either under attack, framed, or in a war. Any country that is under the dictatorship may have an artificial boost of economy, and may have some sort of security(which is ironic as they make global terror and terrorists) - but all in exchange of a psychological & soft warfare declared on its citizens, by the billions of dollars governments spend, on order to keep citizens weak and asleep to the reality of the world. The way they achieved all these puppets through almost every government in the world is through colonialism. They did not split and divide the world for nothing - then leave it like that. They instilled corrupt governments for every place to inject their propaganda by the engineers - that seek how to change and shape the world and the people as they like with bad intentions. But of course they plan and Allah Swt plans and Allah Swt is the best of planners - as the Holy Quran al Kareem says. This is just one of the many reasons why Sayed Ali Khamenei (Ha) calls America "the great satan". ‏اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد Thank God we have a good leader like Ayatullah Khamenei (Ha).
  18. The truth behind Islam is that how we can understand the meaning of the truth based on Islamic view. Truth stands for the conformity between word and deed. It plays a great role in the lives of both the individuals and communities. Truth is the beauty of speech and ground of success. From this cause, the Islamic Sharia, in both the Quran and Sunna, glorified and urged telling truth: “Those who have brought the truth and those who have acknowledged it are those who have fear of Allah. They will receive whatever they want from their Lord. Thus is the reward of the righteous ones. (39:33-4)" “Allah will say, “This is the Day when the truthful ones will benefit from their truthfulness. (5:119)" “Believers! Have fear of Allah and always be friends with the truthful ones. (9:119)" The Prophet (s) said: “Truth is the adornment of speech." Imam as-Sadiq (a) said: “Do not be deceived by their very much offering of prayers and observance of fasting. In fact, prayers and fasting have become habits that they feel desolate if they omit them. You should test them by their truthfulness and fulfillment of trusts." “The deeds of the truthful are growing." This means that the deeds of the truthful are ongoing and their rewards are, too, growing. Thus, God accepts only the deeds of the pious ones. Truth, then, is one of the most significant characteristics of piety. 1. Az-Zumar (39:33-4)" 2. Al-Ma'ida (5:119)" 3. At-Tawba (9:119)"
  19. I've heard a couple of rumors from people and would like to confirm if it's true or no? Firstly my friend told me that Imam al Hussain a.s will reappear and live on this planet for 300 years. Are there any hadiths regarding this? Second, is it true that sayyeds will be punished and rewarded twice as much than non sayyeds? Thirdly, ok I'll make this to a question, who will kill the Mahdi? or how will he die?
  20. Salaam. To give some background, I have been brought up with Shia beliefs but recently, an encounter with another individual has led me to revisit these beliefs and its has made me realise, I actually don't know an awful lot about my own beliefs let alone the beliefs of others. I promised myself that I will look, discuss and seek to find that closest to the truth and to spot the discrepancies. I want to feel the peace that many believers do because they've found their path. But with little Muslim friends I have, my primary companion is the Internet. Since I've started researching into Shia'ism and Sunni'ism more, I feel I've become less practicing because I don't know what is right and wrong and this just pretty much had left me irritated with everything. Has anyone else felt or encountered a scenario like this and how do you deal with it? And please, no mean comments.
  21. (salam) I wrote this shortly after I converted to Shi3a Islam. I decided to share it, although it may not make any sense to you. It encompasses a few dreams I've had and some pain I went through losing my mother. It basically was a plea to finding the Truth, amidst having a severed heart from loss. It took me year's to get to this place, but I thought I'd share it with you. Is My Heart Ready? Beginning with cross-road’s, looking for Your Light Tainted with deception, grief, and false insight Where are You? Is my heart ready? Pain stricken soul, no one in sight Lies upon lies, wrong and right in my view, something is not right Is my heart ready? My mother’s feet are now gone, pain more prevalent, where are You? My father’s cries are strong, no one in sight, where are You? Happiness swept away, no more light in my soul, A beating heart with no pulse… I still love You…Where are You? No one in sight… Years of being half-stepped with no light, I am ready. Please come find me. I need You. Life-less, a dark road, which seems darker and darker by night, no one in sight, is my heart ready? I need You. I still love You. Where are You? My sorrow prevails, no one in sight, I beg to be with You. My loss takes over my vision… Show me the Truth! There is something missing…A man comes in form of a vision… A broken heart, I now must endure, the sight of your suffering brings me to fear How could they hurt you? Are you here to help? The pain inside begins to welt A piece of my heart is now flowing, the gates to my salvation are now knowing A pulse has arisen, its beat is weak, show me more, so that I shall seek! Is my heart ready? Two men are here, to show you cheer, to guide your Light, and decrease your fear Who are you? Why am I here? Your love for me is unconditional…my heart is flowing, tears for years of not knowing… The pain is lifting, her memory is here, but your love for me, no one can compare…Is my heart ready? Your neck is red with a shining light, tears of blood drenching in your might, Who are you? Why do I love you? A prisoner’s keep was at your feet, my pain is lifting, my love is transcending…show me the Light. They hurt you with no feeling, nothing but hate in their hearts, I love you. I am here. Is my heart ready? This is not your land, but here we stand, waiting for the upper-hand of Light… Mecca came forth, showing your worth, in all of my blinded-night’s, no one could see, it was You who was guiding me. It was You all along, heart beating so strong, my loss was a fraction of your light Your name was Allah, the most beautiful name, Where were You? Is my heart ready? His name was Mohammad, a Messenger of Light, where have you been? No one in sight… My heart bleeds Hussain, I feel you in my veins, who are you? I love you, I don’t know your name. Your name was Ahlul-Bayt, a name of my fate…The seal of my blindness. Though mother’s feet are now behind us, I give my heart, my pulse, it will forever beat for you. I now see the Light. You are here, You are in sight, by my mother’s flight, wings shining so bright… I will never let You out of my sight. (wasalam) AB313
