As Salamu Aleykum brothers and sisters I wonder what you guys have to say on the Anatolian Turkish Alevis who have some of the greatest religious songs ever produced. Below are some examples: [Mod Note: The first video about Imam Ali AS has a sad tone. The second one is the birthday of the Holy Prophet SA, so if you are in mourning for Imam Hussein AS, beware not to watch it until your mourning is over.]
Selam Aleykum. I read many posts about Alawi about what they believe about Imam Ali (as). I read that Alawi believe that Ali is God. I am Arap Alawi/alevi. I am from Syria. I can assure the people here who are reading this, that we do NOT believe that Imam Ali is God. There is only 1 God, no other. La Illahe iIlAllah. Some people might say: But all they talk about is Ali. This might be so, but didnt our prophet (saw) say: Ya Ali, Whoever loves you has loved me, whoever hates you has hated me. i am the city of knowledge and ali is its gate. Muhammed (saw) and Ali (as) resemble each other like 2 crows resembling each other. So this means that, when we do what Ali does, we automatically do what our prophet did. We have more love for our prophet than Ali. Shia and alevi are mostly the same. They are our brothers in Islam (same as sunni of course but for now i make comparison with Shia). We both believe in the 12 Imams. They are our masters. As we all know, Ali is born in the Kaaba. The Kaaba opent up for Fatimah. She stayed here for 3 days. Most alawi (me too) believe that Ali has the air of Allah. This doesnt make him Allah, but how he found the watersprings. How he lifted the gates with 1 hand. All I wish to say here is, Dont think we believe that Imam Ali is God. We do believe Allah gave him powers. But no such thing as Ali a God. I think things went wrong that people heard wrong or interpretation of people differ alot. Please, no spamming or bashing this message. All I wanted was to let ppl know how we think about Ali and information about thinking that he is God, is wrong. Peace be upon you all, brothers and sister. May Allah guide you to Jannah!
Salam, I would like to have a better understanding of my Shia brothers and sisters who follow other branches of Islam. I would like to learn about Zaydi, Ismaili, Druze, Alawi,Yarsan, and Bektashi, but I'm not looking for superficial stuff I could find online I would like in depth teachings that cover prayers (and prayer times), Philosophical trends, what is considered Halal and Haram, view of scripture, are books besides the Qur'an and Hadith used, how you perform salat, basically everything. both the esoteric and exoteric views of scripture, and your view on the Mahdi. If you are willing to teach me please let me know, I'll even take book and pdf recommendations and please be of the sect you are teaching because I don't want to get any bogus information. Thank you for your time
