  1. Salaam everybody: Here's an opportunity to increase blessings throughout this community and throughout the whole world. I remember seeing old threads from years past about salawat pledges, but this thread will be slightly different. The only goal of this thread is to post the salawat as often as we can, and nothing more: اللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ Allahumma salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin O Allah: (please do) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad Rules of this thread: 1. All members are encouraged to post the salawat as often as they like, English or Arabic (but only once per post please) 2. Like as many posts as possible (reciting it yourself out loud while you like the post) 3. No other discussions or statements please, this is purely for salawat only Let's see how long this chain will go, and how much blessing we can all accumulate from posting and liking. More information on the salawat: http://www.duas.org/salwaat.htm I'll get started: Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad wa ali Muhammad
  2. Assalaamu `alaykum, all. Having a great love for Mawla `Ali (karramAllahu wajhahu) and swords in general, I thought I'd do some research into the famed Dhu-l Faqar; perhaps one day I might order a reproduction made to the specifications outlined below:1. Arab swords of the early Islamic era were similar in almost every way to either the Roman spatha or the Sassanid longsword, i.e. they were straight and double-edged (the saber was an innovation originating in Central Asia, not finding its way to the Persians or Arabs until much later). The highest quality were made in Yemen from imported wootz ingots (made in southern India). They were uniformly worn hung from a baldric; wearing a sword on one's hip on a belt was not customary (in fact it seems to have been looked down upon) for the Arabs.2. I have effectively ruled out its name referring to a bifurcation of the tip or serration of the edges (as we see on Shī`ī pendants and Indo-Pakistani interpretations). Bifurcation of the tip would make a sword structurally unsound (particularly with the desired impact area being roughly the upper third of the blade), and such a measure would be ludicrous to as ferocious a warrior as `Alī (`alayhi salām); such a sword would not have been one famously used by him. Serration of the edge (such as on the medieval Flamberge), while indeed effectively improving the performance of a cut-centric sword (as spathae were), was not innovated until much later in history. Thus I have determined that the name either has to do with cleaving/separating (the vertebrae, specifically), or referring to a particularly intricate fuller design it may have incorporated (fiqr is a word meaning fine engraving). As it was quite ordinary for spathae to have multiple (quite attractive) fullers, I'm leaning more toward translating its name as "Lord of Cleaving."3. By investigating Ibn al-Qayyim's "Zād ul-Ma`ād" and Imām Tirmidhī's "Shamā'il," I have determined the parts of Dhū-l Faqār's furniture which were made of silver, and they are as follows:-Bikrāh: these are the part of the scabbard which attach to the rings through which the baldric straps are fed.-Dhu'ābah: this would usually refer to the lanyard hung from the pommel (used for weapon retention and decoration), but since this is mentioned along with those features made of silver, I have to assume this refers to a ring through which the lanyard was strung.-Na`l: this is the decorative (and protective) endcap at the base of the scabbard, also called chape. Not to be confused with chappe.-Halqah: throat (chappe). As spathae featured both a chappe on the scabbard and the hilt, I shall thus apply it to both. Note that the chappe of a spatha's hilt tended to be incorporated into the larger (usually) shoulder-style rounded handguard.-Qabī`ah: pommel cap and handle accents.4. The blade will resemble in length, width, and taper, that of a typical 7th-century Roman spatha. It should have a roughly spatulate tip. I have decided on a U-shaped fuller; this would be a double-fuller which is joined at the tip (and matches a picture I found of the Fatimid iconography).5. As I mentioned, the best quality swords made by the Arabs were made in Yemen, which had considerable Persian influence at the time. So why isn't this sword being made in the Sassanid longsword style? I'm not assuming Dhū-l Faqār was a Yemeni-made sword, because there is a hadīth which mentions that one of the swords (not named, unfortunately) belonging to RasūlAllāh ﷺ (as Dhū-l Faqār originally did) was made in the style of the Bani Hanīfah. This tribe inhabited the Yamāmah region, which is part of modern-day Najd; far from Persian influence. Furthermore, all of the anatomical features mentioned above are indicative of Roman style. None of the Sassanid longswords I've seen has incorporated them as described, while every spatha has.So that's where I am now. I've still got a lot of research to do for ideas on the particular style of decoration I'm going to use for the mountings. I've seen some examples from the period that experts aren't sure are Byzantine or Arab, so it's safe to assume Byzantine and Arab weaponry incorporated similar, if not identical, motifs.So what's everyone think of my sword ijtihād so far? Input is welcome!
  3. Salaam brothers and sisters, I am a new Shia and am always asked questions by my family (who are for the most part okay with my conversion from Sunni to Shia). I was asked "Asking others to pray for you is recommended and encouraged. The issue is how can someone who is dead (eg. Rasullallah PBUH, the Imams, Wali) pray for us?". What evidence in the Quran and Sunnah of Muhammad (PBUH) and the Ahlul Bayt that one who is dead can make prayers for us? Authentic Scholarly sources are best. Thanks
  4. Assalam-O-Alaikum My Shia Brothers in Islam. My question is, What are Proofs of Shia for Intercession? Is intercession still allowed after death, I mean after passing away of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and Ahlul-Bayt? What about saints? Is it appropriate to go at the grave of a saint and Intercession through them? Jazaak Allah Khair !!!
  5. Selam alaycom, Inshalla everyone here knows how to do (and does) the obligatory acts of worship. However, there are many recomended acts that you might not know about. Inshalla I'll be posting some recommended daily duas, prayers, amaal and ziyarats here. This first one here is a gift from me, :angel: that some of you might need in other forums here on shiachat. Dua for scorpion bite At the place of scorpion bite salt should be poured and then recite Sura “Al-Kafiroon” (Ch: 109), Sura “Al-Falaq” (Ch: 113) and Sura “Al-Nas” (Ch: 114) one time each. Peace, Um Ali
  6. Assalamu Alaykum, I am looking for the book Tawhid al-Mufaddal, which is a compilation of Imam Jafar al-Sadiq's (a.s) teachings.How can I find it?
  7. Salam Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu Dear brothers and sisters, if one of you could transliterate this noha in english, I would be extremely grateful.
  8. When did the Quran have the punctuation marks added too it? As Muslims we all believe that the Quran is infallible and intact however is anyone familiar with the Quranic verses which Mention Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussian when you remove the punctuation? I forget the Ayat in which this miracle takes place can someone please help me.
  9. Has anyone read the book tited Envar-e Zehra ? Those who read,could you provide information about the book and do you recommed it some say it includes elements of shirk ! Like doing prostoraition to Fatima(as) [astağfirullah].
  10. Assalaamu 'aleykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatu When it comes to making dua, I have heard of several ways in which one can seek the intercession of the Ahlul Bayt in order to help a dua get accepted, but I wanted to ask if all of these methods are considered acceptable according to mainstream Shia so this way I have a more correct understanding of Shi'ism. I will give an example: I wish to make dua so that my heart is steady and I get good results in my university exams. Method #1: "O Hussain, please steady my heart in my exams and give me good grades Method #2: "O Allah, for the sake of your 'abd Hussain, please steady my heart in my exams and give me good grades" Method #3: "O Hussain, please intercede for me with Allah (SWT) so that He may steady my heart in my exams and give me good grades." Note: Replace the name Hussain with any other member of the Ahlul Bayt. Could you please tell me if Shi'ism allows for all three methods, or just two, or just one? BarakAllahu Feekum
  11. Salam I was watching this lecture by sayed ammar on Surah 5:55. And he claims that one of the marij found narrations of all 12 imams giving zakat to a poor man while in ruku
  12. The kalam argument goes like this 1. Whatever begins to exist has a cause. 2. The universe began to exist. 3. Therefore, the universe has a cause. However, sean carroll argues that it is very well possible that some things can exist without a cause. "To drive the point home, I elaborated on why things like “causes” and “explanations” make perfect sense for parts of the universe, but not for the universe itself: namely, that we live in a world with unbreakable patterns (laws of physics) and an arrow of time, but the universe itself (or the multiverse) is not one element of a much bigger pattern, it’s all there is." Indeed, I quoted a stronger theorem, the “Quantum Eternity Theorem” (QET) — under conventional quantum mechanics, any universe with a non-zero energy and a time-independent Hamiltonian will necessarily last forever toward both the past and the future. He argues that the universe does not require cause as the universe itself does not have to follow the laws of cause and effect. He argues that the universe could have existed eternally just like god himself I was wondering if someone could provide me with other effective proofs of god (Besides Thomas Acuqineas). Or even refute sean caroll's arguments. Also, I've heard of this theory that the very fact that we can express conciousness or love is proof of the existence of god. Is this true?

  14. Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of 'Imran over the worlds - How is this verse alluding to the family of muhammad. Also can one explain what Anwar Qazwini was trying to say in this lecture

  16. Are there any 12er shias who believe that the prophets are superior to the imams, if so can they please provide evidence on why they believe so ?
  17. Salaam! On Youtube, Allama Sayyid Mukhtar Shah Qadri Rizvi has a series of lectures on the lives of famous awliya Allah. Amongst this lecture series he also has started a series of lectures on the lives of the Imams. He has done from Imam Zayn al Abidin (as) to Imam Ali Reza so far ... Here is the link on Youtube for Imam Zayn al Abidin: It is in Urdu/Hindi. I found it very informative, intellectual, and (in this one) emotional. I hope all fair minded people will enjoy listening to it to increase their love of Ahlul Bayt and Aal Muhammad (sal allahu alayhi wa sallam).

Below is an excerpt from my latest post - inspired by a saying of Imam Hasan (as).-----------Life of Dignity and Honor An important thing that distinguishes a human being from all other creation is a deep innate sense of honor and a desire to live a respectable and noble life. No human being wants to live a life of disgrace and humiliation. Of course there are other distinctions between humans and animals - like the power to reason which enables us to make decisions and act on them. This power can be used to raise ourselves to higher levels of existence. At the same time, when used inappropriately, we risk dropping down lower than the lowest of creation. We recognize easily the power of reason and intellect. We are born with the ability to choose our own course in life and have been designed with outstanding powers to discover, resolve, and reason. Yet, we may not always understand our inborn sense of honor, even though the Creator created us with honor and dignity. Each and every one of us is a highly valuable creation. We are His best creation and we by far exceed any other creation in existence. The paramount and most pressing question then is, how does one live a life of honor and reach it's highest point?

  19. Teachings of Imam Ali: Abstemiousness February 7, 2015By Shoeb Bhinderwalain Ahlul Bayt,Guidance,Imam Ali, Self-ImprovementLeave a commentEdit The teachings of the Ahlul Bayt provide us with the correct perspective from which to look at this world. Imam Ali (divine guide and successor of Prophet Muhammad) on numerous occasions explains the realities of this world. He provides us with the required insight, clears our concepts and gives us the correct viewpoint and angle from which to look at this world. The attention and energy we devote to a task is directly proportional to the importance we attach to it. Yes this world is an important place and deserves our attention but from a very different perspective. This world is nothing but a working ground for the hereafter and we have been honored by being granted an opportunity to prove ourselves, to struggle and become victorious in the path towards our Creator. Our relationship to this world is like the relationship of the farmer with the farm. The land is just a means to reap the harvest and not a goal in and of itself. O people! Look at the world in the same way that a Zaahid looks at it. Turn away from it. — Imam Ali, Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 103 A good example is that of a true sportsman who feels honored by being selected to participate in a competition. He appreciates the opportunity granted to him to prove his abilities. His attention and sole focus is nothing but to excel and prove his sportsmanship. During the competition he will live very much like a Zaahid - he would be detached materially from the splendors and attractions of the location. He will keep away from feasting and merrymaking. He will exercise self-discipline and orient his lifestyle with the single goal of excelling in the competition. He would be cautious and wary of the dangers that could impair or harm his performance. He would be knowledgeable and learned in the ways and techniques of his sport. And when victorious, the sense of achievement and the accompanying feeling of satisfaction would suffice as his reward and compensation.

  20. (salam) Answering Christianity is one of my most favorite websites when it comes to refute allegations made on Islam and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). But now time's come for Answering Christianity to be refuted. I encountered some articles while my research. Some authors in Answering Christianity wrote'em in order to refute Shia Muslims. I collected them all and refuted them in one of my blogs. Now I'm thinking of joining their forum and represent my article before the my opponent. This is my blog: http://modest-muslim.blogspot.com/
  21. Wikipedia has a webpage of the English translation of the Holy Qur'an by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, so I looked at it and thought this will be useful to quickly look up surahs and ayahs. I decided to click on 33:33 which is one of our beloved ayahs about Ahlul Bayt AS. Using my home computer with mouse, I clicked on Surah 33 and I saw the table of ayah numbers and the color of ayah 33 looked a little bit different than all the other ayah numbers. At first I thought somebody else already clicked on that ayah so that is why it looks different. Then I noticed that you cannot click on it, like somebody doesn't want you to read it! How strange! If you want to see 33:33, you have to physically scroll down the page until you find ayah 33. If you are using your phone, can you click on 33:33? Can anyone explain this? Is this an example of kufr in the modern time, right in front of our faces, to try to cover up ayah 33 of Surah 33? :donno: http://wikiislam.net/wiki/The_Holy_Quran_-_Abdullah_Yusuf_Ali
  22. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As salaam Wa alaykum brothers & sisters. Recently I was listening to a lecture given by Seyed Ammar Nakswani and in the lecture he spoke about how some people bash Islam because they have nothing written about the Prophet (pbuh) until 150 after his death... At first I was confused and even more confused when Nakshwani then said they have a point and the Sunni Sahih hadiths and other ones like that were compiled around 150 years after the prophets (pbuh) death... But then he mentioned a book called "kitab-e-sulaym ibn Qays al Hilali" He said that this was the first book of hadiths compiled by one of the companions of RasulAllah (saws) and AhlulBayt only 50 years after the death of the prophet. He then mentioned a hadtih from Imam As-Sadiq (as) "If anyone of our Shia does not have the book of Sulaym Ibn Qays Al Hilali, then he does not have any of our things and does not know an of our matters." Perhaps some of you already have this book but for those who don't, I want to share it with you so inshAllah all the followers of AhulBayt can have this book. Here's the link: http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/73073275/download?secret_password=2lx5n00bya7f4rikquik If that didn't work, this should work inshAllah: http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/73073275/download?secret_password=2lx5n00bya7f4rikquik Btw, I am on my iPad at the moment so I do apologize if it doesn't work if you are using a computer because the link may be for those using a mobile device or an iPad ect. But you would be able to go to scribd.com and just search for that book and it will come up inshAllah :) Wassalaam
