  1. Salaam, Posting a topic after a long time So a dear brother ( @sunni muslim ) asked why is the "Quran and Sunnah" not enough. This is a fair question and deserves some thought so here are somethings to think about. It's important to note that whoever believes the quran is enough (Hasbona kitaballah) is wrong because authentic Sunni narrations confirm the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) specifically mentioned "Quran and Sunnah". Denying a clear edict from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) makes such a person munafiq? Why did some prominent sahaba reject this authentic edict from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and only accept Quran? Are they from the hypocrites then? Authentic sunni narrations also tell us that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) confirmed "Quran and AhlulBayt" as well. If the Prophet said "quran and sunnah" and "quran and ahlulbayt", then why do sunnis insist on "quran and sunnah" only? Are sunnis openly rejecting another edict of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)? Surely if the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said both, then the shia and sunni stance should be "Quran + AhlulBayt + Sunnah". Anything less would be rejecting the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), would it not? The shia stance on this is very clear. We take the Quran and the sunnah of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) as confirmed/explained by the AhlulBayt. Did the Prophet say "Quran AND (Sunnah OR AhlulBayt)", "QURAN OR (Sunnah OR AhlulBayt)"; "QURAN AND Sunnah AND AhlulBayt"; Let's ignore the AhlulBayt for the moment and focus on the sunnah. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "I am leaving behind Quran and Sunnah so you don't go astray." Immediately after the demise of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), Caliph Abu Bakr and subsequently Caliph Umar prohibit the narrations of sunnah, burn down written sunnah (500+ narrations at least). Did Abu Bakr and Umar purposely defy the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and in effect lead the Ummah astray. The argument put forth is that the Caliphs did not want sahaba to narrate wrong traditions. But these sahaba would have heard the narrations and seen the sunnah first hand. Surely adl-e-sahaba would mean no erroneous traditions within the first 5 yrs of the demise of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Caliph Abu Bakr burned 500+ narrations for fear of being wrong. Could it be that he remembered the narration "Prophets down leave inheritance" incorrectly. This is a conundrum. If the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "Quran and Sunnah" and Abu Bakr + Umar clearly denied the transmission of sunnah, what does it make them? How could the 2 closest sahaba reject a clear edict of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)? I would love to hear some other thoughts on this topic. P.S. @sunni muslim - I did not want to derail the other thread but our conversation was going to go in circles: Sunni Muslim: why is "quran and sunnah" not enough ShiaMan: because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "Quran and AhlulBayt" Sunni Muslim: he said both but tell me why "quran and sunnah" is not enough ShiaMan: errrr, because he said both???
  2. al-Biṣāṭ fī Uṣūl al-Dīn By: al-Imām al-Nāṣir lī al-Ḥaqq al-Ḥasan b. ʿAlī b. al-Ḥasan b. ʿAlī b. ʿUmar b. ʿAlī b. al-Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī b. Abī Ṭālib Between your hands, dear reader, is one of the many works of guidance that the Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (upon them be peace) have authored for the sake of your intellectual, spiritual, and religious salvation. The Prophet (upon him and his Ahl al-Bayt be peace) informed us in the mass-transmitted tradition that he left behind the Book of Allāh, and his progeny, and in adhering to both of them - the Book which is the guidance of Allāh, and the progeny who are the guardians of God’s guidance we may confidently cling to the unadulterated message of our Lord delivered by His trustworthy Messenger (upon him and his Ahl al-Bayt be peace). For, the dialects are many, the whims are vast, and the circumstances are dire. Therefore, it became necessary to hold onto this blessed household, the community of the Noble progeny which does not err when arriving at a matter collectively. As, it is not that the Sacred Scripture is unclear, nor the traditions of the Honorable Messenger convoluted. Rather, it is by the expansion of the religion, the corruption of the rulers, and the urgency to distinguish what has become unclear due to the boisterous Islamic atmosphere that our Noble Prophet (upon him and his Ahl al-Bayt be peace) willed for us to adhere to those who would guide to the essence of the message, as it was during the Prophet’s presence. The Glorious Qurʾān was revealed in the language of the Arabs, and therefore miraculously spoke in the context of their tongue, however, when the religion of Islam spread, and the Muslims became more diverse, its divine writ was interpreted, and understood in lieu of the variant understanding of language that the Muslims had. As such, we found beliefs in determinism, corporealism, and political quietism rising by reason of being distanced in understanding the language of the Arabs, and the Qurʾān; mistakenly mixing the decisive, and allegorical verses. In addition to the weak resolve of some who promoted such fallacious beliefs due to the fragility of their foresight, selling the content of their Lord for a cheap sum, and a transient standing; forsaking the service of Allāh for the service of their lowly inclinations, and despotic rulers. The message of the Holy Prophet (upon him and his Ahl al-Bayt be peace) which has not been misconstrued by the transgressions of some, the deviance of others, and the misconceptions of many is to be found alongside those who he (upon him and his Ahl al-Bayt be peace) informed would veer us away from Ḍhalāl (misguidance). For, the school of the Ahl al-Bayt (which is actively embodied under the Zaidīyyah) is a school that shows you the fruits of its firm tree. Taqlīd (emulation) within this school is not permitted in its Uṣūl (fundamental beliefs), for it is a school which calls for firm conviction, and precision. Now, one may ponder, if their Uṣūl cannot be emulated, then, how can we be certain of their conclusions, or ours? You see, the magnificence of this school is that it follows a deductive rhythm, it places for you, the seeker of truth, the solution, and presents you with the formula that will necessarily lead to it. For instance, if one were to be, as will soon be demonstrated by our Imam bound by the Qurʾān, and its language. Then, they would have already accepted a necessary premise that would lead to the deductive conclusion provided by the Ahl al-Bayt (upon them be peace). What can be more liberating, and refreshing? You are not only presented with an ark of salvation, but you are also obligated to test the durability, and reliability of this ark before embarking on it in journeying towards the Beloved! May this work serve as an illumination for the heart, a clarification for the mind, and a means of rejuvenation for the spirit, and may it be a catalyst for you, dear reader, to act immediately in support of this Noble Household.

  3. Peace be with you. I've never really understood the business and economy behind investing. Could someone with (advanced) knowledge or rather experience about this, explain it to me? What does the sharia' say about investing in companies and having shares etc. What do the maraji' say? Is this something that is halal or haram? Jazakallah khair. (I have heard incoherent answers that's why i'm hoping someone would clarify this)
  4. The notion of love has it's roots in the trait of kindness. Only a kind person can understand and exhibit love. Now, kind here is not someone who gets delighted after seeing a baby or a dog and starts adoring it. Neither it is someone who starts crying everytime after watching something bad happening to someone. So, what is kindness? A kind person is the one who is bent upon helping anyone with whatever problem one has. He is thirsty of such people who need help. An extremely kind person doesn't want anyone to ask him to help. He feels ashamed if such a thing happens. So, kindness is the pure trait of helping different beings in their works with utter selflessness. Only faith can depict such traits. As Ayatullah Shaheed Murtadha Mutahhari writes in his book, "It is religious faith alone which, above all, respects Truth, honors justice, encourages kindness". So, kindness is a spiritual trait. As this trait becomes more and more apparent within the realm of spirit; it indicates towards a strong, inevitable and beautiful reality. This is called love. It seems, overtly, as if kindness causes love. But no, it is actually love that is the cause of this kind behavior. Love is a feeling while kindness is a trait. Love, though is an extreme force, not easy to control but it has levels. It seems as if it ascends from relative realities to absolute reality. Actually, it breaks down from absolute reality to relative bounds. At the lowest level of this hierarchy is human to human love. This has no essence of itself. It's core lies in faith only. This is just a symbol. Despite being very limited and quite less, it exists. The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) has said, "Allah has divided kindness into 100 parts. Out of which 1 part is induced in all humanity." So, the love amongst the humans is basically, 100th part of the entire phenomenon. Amazing. This love can be seen everywhere and everyone has experienced it. May Allah let every person have a taste of love. Love of a mother for her child, a father for his child, among siblings, friends, family relatives, husband and wife etc. It doesn't even matter how they are related or is their even any relationship or not. Love is independent of any relationship, distance or any material dimension. It can be resembled in different ways but love doesn't depend upon it's symbol. At this point, a human mind starts to tremble. Because this feeling is incomprehensible and unpercievable. He tries to break and kill all the false perceptions that might be their. Love, as I said, has no physical dimension. Though, a human mind lagging the ability to understand it, might mistake it (and it happens very often). False notions are created which shame the truth and pure character of love. Carnal desires related to lust and greed always wander in a human mind. But problem occurs when these satanic thoughts are confused or assumed wrongly as love. From this point, this spiritual notion gets materialized and humiliated. This happens to such an extent that as a result it stops the progress of the spirit of a human being. It makes a person blind towards the reality of love — which is progressive — and stops the journey of soul towards it's ultimate destiny. Human love is just a medium to reach the divine and absolute reality of love but greed makes a person feel as if human love itself is divine and he has found our god in the form of that person or being we love in this material world. So, the final result of this false notion is infidelity. Here is the difference between both. The fake love vs real love. One is destructive to an extent that it directs you to hell and the other might help you reach heaven without any punishment. Heaven and hell? Where did that come from? Yes, as I said, Love is truth. Truth is love. And it is divine and absolute. If a human being on the path of love and kindness doesn't recognize Allah or as a result of love, his faith doesn't reach closer to certainty, then he is trapped in a false notion. Above the level of love is worship which is the last. Love is a consequence of the manifestation of divinity (Maarefat e Ilaahi). As I said love doesn't combines, it breaks down. When we practice taqwa, adhere to our faith, earn knowledge, struggle, stay patient and thus our counted amongst the guided ones; we see the beauty of Allah through the eyes of our heart. It amazes us and turns us crazy. Maula Ali (عليه السلام) says when Asked by his companion Dhalib al Yemani, "Yaa Amir ul Momineen (عليه السلام), Have you seen your Lord?" Maula says, "Would I worship that which I do not see? When Asked, "How do you see him"; Amir up Momineen (عليه السلام) says, "Eyes do not see him with direct witnessing. But hearts percieve him through the realities of authentic belief". Seeing the beauty of Allah though he is unseen. This is Maarefah of Allah. This maarefah from worship and a constant search of being, causes love. But love pays back. Love increases the power of worship and makes it more extreme. It beautifies the already beautiful worship of Allah. It makes a person forget this world. It makes him turn away from this world. Such a human being who is drowned in this extreme love of his beloved (Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) ) is dying to meet his Lord as is also clear from the munajaat of Maula Ali (عليه السلام). Love of Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and AhlulBayt (عليه السلام) for Allah and it's depiction in history is the only way we can fascinate ourselves with the beauty of this feeling. Such a person, loves everything associated with Allah. He can sacrifice himself for the sake of Allah. Not only himself, his entire existence without any hesitation. It is written about Maula Ali (عليه السلام) that when some muslims came to the Holy Prophet (عليه السلام) to complain about Ali (عليه السلام), the Prophet (عليه السلام) said, "Don't complain about Ali, he is crazy (Majnoon) in love of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)." Now, removing all conseptualization let me make it clear through the intercession of AhlulBayt (عليه السلام). Love is, when a man sleeps for the sake of Allah on the bed of The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) even after knowing that he is surrounded by swords. Love is, when Fatima (SA) spends days in hunger and nights in prayer of the Almighty but never complains to anyone about her pains. Love is, when this woman (Fatima (SA)) stands like a mountain between his husband — Wali of Allah — and the oppressors who were burning her house to defend Haq. Love is, when a woman(Fatima (SA) again) being a child accompanies her father and supports him when he is attacked, laughed off and taken lightly by the meccans for the message he conveys and as a result is called as Umm Abiha. Love is, when a man (Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) ) who has committed himself to sacrifice, after sacrificing his whole family, with his body bathed in blood puts himself into the last prostration (sujood) to his lord. Love is, when a woman (Zainab (SA) ) despite all what she saw, despite the chains around her body, despite the thirst killing her throat and the humility she beared as a consequence of her veil being taken away; despite no one, except her ill nephew, standing for her, speaks so loud and so clear that the throne of the tyrant of that time and everytime and his system from top to bottom trembles and breaks into pieces. Love is, when this woman is asked in a disrespectful tone, "Did you see what Allah did to you?" She says, "I saw nothing but the beauty of Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى))". I cannot go ahead of this. So, it becomes clear that love is only for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). It resembles kindness and sacrifice. It actually needs sacrifice to flourish in every heart. It needs sacrifice as it's own resemblance. It needs sacrifice for the success of human spirit. Not only from an individualistic stand point because sacrifice has an impact on masses. So, here comes the importance of the greatest effect of love on a soul which is the spirit of sacrifice. Like Ibrahim (عليه السلام) did of his son. Like Lady Hajra (عليه السلام) did of her calm life with her husband and accepted to stay in a desert relying only on her beloved (Allah). So, sacrifice is the greatest symbol of love. And what is the greatest example of sacrifice? Karbala. Can you imagine a person who says to his companions that you will be martyred, your heads will be slaughtered and raised on lances? Who says: 'Leave me alone to die as my enemies need me and not you.' ? But however he may insist, his companions don't move. They are seeing themselves cut into pieces but our eager to go to the battle ground. Who cannot be stunned by such conviction? Who are these people? Who are we in front of such people? We follow our rubbish lame desires. Are we blind or is the history of such people not clear enough? What if we start to follow Weheb al Kalbi (رضي الله عنه), who got martyred and slaughtered while he just got married. What if the woman become like her wife, who saw her smart, young and wonderful husband getting slaughtered in front of her? What will go wrong if mother's take pride in sacrificing their children for the sake of Allah, wherever and whenever possible instead of pampering them and teaching them to become coward? Have you ever seen a sacrifice of a 6 months child? Can anyone imagine herself in place of Bibi Umm Rabab (رضي الله عنه)? Have you seen a mother who prays to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and prostrates in front of Allah out of thankfulness when she hears the news that both of her dear sons got martyred? She doesn't even cry on them. She barely asks about their dead bloodied bodies. Allahu Akber! What can one say? Just doing this conversation and penning down this glorification of love is making me tremble. Karbala's example is unique just like our religion and the holy figures that stand as divine guides for us. Though Karbala carries the legacy of simple human beings like us. But can you see how love changes everything? Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) created friends of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) out of human beings. His Caravan of sacrifice led the greatest example of divine love humanity will ever see. What can we take for us from here besides humility as lovers and shame as worshippers. Humility about our weak hearts who don't nourish the feeling of love to such an extent. Shame that our prostrations, if even as much as the stars in the sky, cannot equate to the millionth of the prostrations of the Martyrs of Karbala on the plains of Karbala. But their is a glimmer of hope. It's true that love of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is far beyond from the realm of imagination and we cannot sustain it so easily. But their is hope. Hope that comes from AhlulBayt (عليه السلام). Hope that takes an afflicted, painful heart full of regret in the camp of Yazid, from his calm abode to Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) within a night. Hope that makes us quit our food and drinks on the 10th of Ashura (those who genuinely do) and makes us cry and vail for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). As this hope remains, it is developed through love. Love for Ahl ul Bayt (عليه السلام). Love for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). If we make efforts, it is not difficult. When Hurr ibn Yazid al Riyahi (رضي الله عنه) changed his fate in one night by developing all these traits, realising all these instincts; why can't we? He developed love for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). This is intercession. When Imam (عليه السلام) becomes your beloved, your destiny, he will divert your path towards the divine love of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). The notion of mourning the martyrdom and misery of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) opens the door of love, devotion and self sacrifice within the soul of a human being. It's so deep that it can revive a dead soul. Imam Khomeini has said, "Keep the event of Karbala and the holy name of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) alive. For by it's survival, Islam will survive." So, don't miss these mourning events. Marsiya and Nauha recited for our beloved Imam (عليه السلام). You will automatically notice that Allah has changed you. You will experience that change at the end of Muharram. As if some new hidden realities have been shown to you. Even if you read down entire books of Hadith and Qur'an and pray day and night, the effect on your soul will not be as swift as contemplating on the tragedy of Karbala and the life of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). Qur'anic verses are beautified by the character of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). Qur'an is a book and it's visual reality is the life of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). If you have love for Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام), you'll fall in love with Qur'an automatically. Falling in love with both of them will let you gain Maarefat of The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and his Maarefat to the love of Allah. When this divine love will be in your heart, it will break down into infinite denominations and will fall as kindness upon every creature of Allah. In this way, you'll find yourself in love with everything. As Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) says, "O Allah, What did he find who lost you? What did he lose who found you?" [Dua Arafah]. Start your journey of love and immerse yourself in this ocean of love. Though this is nothing in comparison to what an explanation of love should be and my words are not enough to express it. Even if I write what all encompasses my mind, I won't be able to convey it completely.
  5. Along with the Qur’an and Ahlulbayt as ayaats of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), which arguments for God convince you (your heart, your mind) the most? Is it The Kalām Cosmological argument Argument from Dependency / Avicenna’s necessary existence argument Design Argument and Fine Tuning of the universe Argument from Consciousness Argument from Being The implications of atheism (e.g. morality?, no value, meaning, purpose) The fitrah (innate disposition) of the human being Other (please detail)?
  6. Assalamualaikum, I did my under-grad in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and a week ago I started my MBA in Aviation Business Management. I also recently got back into religion, and I am SUPER INTERESTED to serve the Ahlulbayt and the community somehow. Right now I've chosen MBA in Aviation (and I do not know how this will help me serve the Ahlulbayt or to do any good for the people) but to my luck, I have an option of Dual-Specialization. So I can choose either of these : 1. MBA (Aviation + International Business Management) 2. MBA (Aviation + Finance) 3. MBA (Aviation + Marketing) The problem is I really do not know which one of these will help me serve the community or to serve the Ahlulbayt. I would not even mind working for NGO's like WhoIsHussain. I am very interested to work for them. Can you please guide me ? Waasalmunalaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  7. Will prevail when Imam Mahdi ((عليه السلام)) and Prophet Jesus ((عليه السلام)) returns. For the most part, the Palestinians have been brain washed by the salafi’s to the extent that a large percentage of Isis fighters when they were caught were from Palestine and then Chechnya then Tunisia and then Saudi Arabia. I think you and the other guy that I’ve heard of are the only Palestinian Shia’s that exists. The rest are either “Sunni” or “Christian” in short yous are rare gem.
  8. As salamu alaykum I hope everyone is in the best of health Insha’Allah during these crazy times. I’m a 18 year old Palestinian and Egyptian born Muslim and a new “revert” from ahlul Sunnah to the Ahlul Bayt school of thought. I was wondering if anyone had any good book recommendations about Islamic history and good source books. Growing up Islamic history wasn’t emphasised so I’m kinda a newbie to in depth context and sources sourrounding the context of when surahs/ ayas were revealed, I.e Surah al Tawbah, or hadiths/ history surrounding the martyrdom of Hussain as. I don’t know if this is related but also if anyone has any recommendations for mosques in London and also mosques that possibly offer lessons that would be great too. Jazak’Allah everyone.
  9. I created this post because this is literally what we follow, Ahlulbayt or Sunnah. So by proving that 'Kitab Allah and Sunnah' is unauthentic than it proves that 50% is based off following an unauthentic hadith. If you can prove me wrong and that Kitab Allah and Ahlulbayt is unauthentic the 50% of the religion of Shia Muslims is false.
  10. Assalaam Malaikum brothers and sisters! It's been a little time since I last posted. I've had another dream that I'd like to share and wonder if anyone would like to offer insight into what it may mean, insha'Allah? I just had it this morning and I can only share with you what I vividly remember and it was towards the end of the dream. I am a man by the way, in case that matters. In the dream I found myself in a house not familiar to myself and it was very messy, not taken care of properly. I found myself standing before a sink (almost like a long kitchen sink that can be found in restaurants that hold a lot of dishware at once) and behind me standing was a woman I recognized as knowing (but in real life I know no one with her facial characteristics) and she was in pain, in pleading for me to help her, guide her. She indicated her eyes, and while I knew she could physically see, it seemed her eyesight was failing her. She was becoming blind and I worried for her mental health. I found compassion for her and told her "Please close your eyes." as I felt having them open (even though blind) was causing her pain (emotional/mental). I then saw her left hand - or rather her left palm which had a hole in it, but no blood. I took a piece of cloth and wrapped her left hand and then I had her embrace me from behind (her right arm over my right shoulder/neck and her left arm under my left arm and upper ribcage to clasp together in front of my chest) I then slowly guided her in her own home calling upon Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to invoke the blessings of the Ahlulbait(عليه السلام). I never prayed in a dream before and mentioning the Family of the Prophet (عليه السلام) and their blessings upon this woman whom I was guiding is something new to me. I woke up soon after. Thank you for reading Alhamdulilah
  11. “O lions, seize them!” Reading Time: < 1 minute Sayyid Hashim Bahrani, author of Tafseer Burhan narrates that Mansur Dawaniqi summoned seventy natives of Kabul and told them: “You are experts in magic and Ja’far bin Muhammad is also [God forbid] a sorcerer like you. If you can perform a magic trick, which defeats him, I will give you a lot of money.” They began to work upon this and first of all prepared seventy pictures of lions in the court of Mansur. Each of the sorcerers sat near the picture he had sketched. Mansur also sat upon his throne wearing his crown and ordered his men to present Imam Ja’far bin Muhammad ((عليه السلام).), the sixth Divine Proof. When the Imam entered, his eyes fell upon those present there like it is mentioned in the Ziyarat: The seeing eyes of Allah. Then he raised his hands towards the heavens and mentioned some words; some of them softly and some aloud. Then he said: “Woe be on you! I would render your magic and sorcery ineffective.” http://anecdotesofahlulbayt.com/ Then he issued a command and said: “O lions, seize them!” It is mentioned in another report that he said: “O images, each of you, seize your companion!” So, each of the images turned into a ferocious lion and seized its companion. Mansur fell down from his throne unconscious. When he regained senses, he sought the forgiveness of the Imam and said: “My lord and master, tell these lions to return those fellows.” Imam ((عليه السلام).) said: “If the staff of Musa ((عليه السلام).) had returned what it swallowed, they would have also done the same.” That is since the staff of Musa ((عليه السلام).) did not restore those serpents, these would also not do that (Madinatul Maajiz, 363 & 364) Reference : Isbaatul Wilayah (Part One) – Ayatullah AliNamazi Shahroodi ((رضي الله عنه).)
