  1. Greetings! Peace be with you. There is some uneasiness in my soul, I think I believe in God, but I am not sure 100%. Also, I am overwhelmed by how many religions there are. I am not sure what religion to choose. I am looking for some direction and help. I have reached out to many people most of them have tried to rationalize their religion, some have not rationalized it at all, but claimed I must take a leap of faith. Please help me understand why Islam is the right religion. And please help me to understand why Shiaism is that right way? Thank you for your time. -Guest313
  2. Personally I think there are so many problems with being a believer. When you say “I believe” you are fundamentally saying, “I am unwilling to admit that I do not know”. The seeker is willing to admit he doesn’t know! The believer is unwilling to make this admission. He draws conclusions about what is not yet within his experience. A believer may make assumptions about the day of the judgement! Further, the moment you believe something, you are in conflict with the opposing belief. You can postpone it with moderate talk. But conflict is inevitable. Isn't it that Abu Darda reported:
  3. Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (as) said : 'When Allah created the intellect, He gave it the faculty of reason and then commanded it,'Come forward', so it came forward, then commanded it, "Go back"' and it went back. Then He said to it:"By my Honour and Sublimity,I have no created anything as dear to Me as you, and I have bestowed you only upon one whom I love. It is you that I command, and you that I prohibit from things, and you that I punish and you that I reward."' - al- Kafi,v.1, p.8, no.1: al-Mahasin,p.192,no.6 & 7 Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (as) was asked by someone what the intellect wa
  4. Salam Alaikum Brother and Sisters My name is Hussain Makki and I've been studying our magnificent religion for over a decade. I started a YouTube channel to breakdown and discuss our ideologies and other important topics. here's a link to the first video i posted https://youtu.be/p8V-EsNjVVA I plan to answer a range of questions such as: is religion a cult? why bother investigating if there is a God? who created the Creator? and many more topics let me know if you have any topics that are relevant and if the channel is helpful at all. many thanks
  5. salam. so, to be a perfect muslim is not possible ofcourse. but that is with respect to actions. for beliefs, it is surely possible to have all the correct beliefs, right? so what are the things that a person must believe in order to be a perfect muslim(with respect to beliefs)? and why? and by why, i mean what is the daleel for it? who said we have to believe in it? and why is that particular person;s word a hujjah/proof upon me or any random person?
  6. I’ve always been religious and started praying at a young age by myself. It was just me and Allah- like Allah was my only friend. One day I watched a video on YouTube and it said that how Allah is so far away. I felt like Allah was really faraway. Slowly it started becoming is Allah really there? I know it says that Allah’s closer to our jugular vein but I just I don’t know. My Imaan is so weak that the belief in Allah is going up and down. One minute it’s there an the next minute it’s not. It’s like my heart doesn’t want to accept like I feel a tightening in my chest. I want to have that conn
  7. Salam and hello everyone, I apologize from the get go if this sounds like a Tumblr post but I genuinely want to hear from other Shiachat lurkers regarding the titular question. Over the past few years I've had the opportunity to meet people from a multitude of backgrounds and diverse schools of thought and I was shocked by how fragile the structural integrity of my beliefs was. Everything that I've ever known was challenged, and I started to question the very nature of my existence. Now of course one could blame it on my upbringing, maybe I didn't attend enough lectures or d
  8. In the Qur'an, Allah ( swt ) teaches us that Prophet Ibrahim first turned to the sun and the moon before he realised there was only one God who is superior to all those things. Were there no remaining traditions from prophets that came before him, like Sheet, Idriss, Nuh, ( as ) etc... ?
  9. I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me a
  10. Salam This is a hadith that is famous and well known but I'm not sure if it was discussed in SC Allah said in his book that the love of Ahlulbayt is obligation and reward to the prophet messengership (review the verse of mawaddah) while all other previous prophets said to their nations that " we ask you for no reward for this guidance we brought you, our reward is from Allah", our prophet said " I ask you for no reward except the love of my household" This indicates, for shia, that the love of Ahlulbayt is associated with religious value instead of simply being love to biologica
  11. I hope you are all in the best of health and in the best of Imaan. Also, Ramadhan Mubarak to you all. So, I'm interested in understanding the extent of the political authority of a marja. We all know that according to usooli belief it is incumbent upon an individual to do the taqleed of a marja and waajib upon him to abide by the laws of fiqh as set down by the marja. We also have a famous saying that taqleed is in fiqh, not aqaid (beliefs). So, those limits are pretty clear but what is often not clear is the political authority a marja commands. Now, part of answering this question goes
  12. May the peace, blessings and mercy of God be upon you all. I am aware that Sunnis believe that the Messenger of God used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays. What do the Shias believe with this matter? Is it true, or not? Do Shias condemn this statement or not? Do Shias have a different belief? Also, I would like to fast outside of Ramadan because it increases my taqwa, am I allowed to do this, if no, why? If yes, on what days? [Any hadith on fasting outside of Ramadan for Shias?] I would like to say that I am not here to refute with anyone. Thank you.
  13. Salam everyone, i had a question revolving in my mind for much time and so today i decided to share my question so that i may find satisfying answers from the knowledgeable users of the forum From the time we are young the elders tell us that nothing perfect can come in to existence by itself and so that is the proof for the existence of god but the question that arises is that how can God come to being all by himself?
  14. Salaam, Are there any shias who originally sunni's on this form, if you can share about how and why you would converted that wuld be great
  15. What is Religion! We must know about religion, what it is, to develop to know our position to it. How can we practice Islam that is a religion-not any religion but religion to the whole creation beyond derby -, without knowing about what religion is. Sure all are good and excellent followers of Islam, but Islam is a religion so what is religion again! What specific thoughts occur in you, please let us know. If it is not cool to mention I, AGAIN I AM, than maybe we should use 'you'- hmm how logical is this sentence -. Our scholars say religion has three parts-or 3 whatever - that is: Ahklaq, Aq
  16. Salam Alaikom Am aware and heard names such as: mottaqi, momin, muslims, moztazafin, kafir, hypocrite, unjust, referring to people or group of people, they are synonym to each other and also opposite of it exist, so all of it is called/named generally what! What is a 'group name'; for example can we say, it is characteristics of the group or individual, or 'kinds of people' or certain level of people! WHAT IS A PROPER WORDING FOR ALL OF IT? And also any important group missing that i have not mentioned! Or maybe we can call it horizontal spectrum/ spectrum of 'what'-level of people, kind
  17. For all of those who are in serious search of the 'TRUTH',This is kind of long but it will help you, InshaAllah :) PART 1: Once Abu Shakir, one of Imam (a.s) opponents, said to him: "Would you allow me to say something and ask some questions?" "Yes, you can", replied Imam Jafar as-Sadiq. Said Abu Shakir: "Is it not a myth that there is Allah? You want people to believe in a thing which does not exist. If there was Allah, we could have felt his existence through our senses. You may say that we can feel His presence by the help of our inner senses, but our inner senses also depend upon our f
  18. (BISMILLAH) (Salam) I hope you are all in the best of health and Iman. When we look at the events surrounding Siffin and the events resulting from it, such as the creation of the Kharjites and the subsequent battle of Naharwan, we that a lot of the people who left the Imam's side were not necessarily evil but were simply fooled by Ibn Aas. For example, when I was younger and had for the first time come across the Imam's history in the series made about him, when his camp started panicking because Ibn Aas has spread rumours that he would divert the flow of the Euphrates, I actually believ
  19. (bismillah) (salam) I hope you are all in the best of health and Imaan. As we all know belief is one of the fundamental requirements for success in the afterlife: "By time! Verily, man is at loss, except for those who believe and perform goods and exhort one another to the truth and to endurance." - Surah Asr While these verses and numerous others in the Qur'an constantly remind us of the importance of belief, I have wondered if many of us born Muslims really fulfil the requirements as they were meant to be met. Most converts - from any religion to any other religion, whet
  20. (bismillah) (salam) I hope you are all in the best of health and the best of Imaan. There is a question that has bothered me for sometime now, regarding the status of miracles and whether they - or, at least, some of them - should be used as a basis for belief. While the end results are what concern me the most, my beliefs, as well as the questions I have regarding them, are shaped by my personal experiences, as is the case for us all. What we are exposed to has a profound impact on how we view the world. And, while the end result to these questions is what I seek, these experiences ha
  21. Hello! I'm new posting and the reason why I have become part of this community is because there are some questions in life that I have that I cannot ask others in my family (either because they'll call me crazy or not understand me, not because of any shameful reasons). Anyway, the point of my post is to ask what your thoughts on Evolution are. Please, if you are not informed on what evolution really means then try to refrain from merely giving negative comments. In my opinion, the evidence on evolution is overwhelming, to the extent that if it is not real then it must be to some extent true.
  22. QUR'AN: and give good news to the patient ones who, when a misfortunate befalls them, say: "Surely we are Allah's and to Him we shall surely return." Those are they on whom are blessings and mercy from their Lord, and those are the followers of the right course: The patient ones are mentioned in these verses so that Allah may give them good news to begin with, and then may teach them the way of good patience, and thirdly, may explain to them why patience is essential it is because Allah owns the man and fourthly, may declare what is its overall recompense, that is, blessing, mercy and being gu
  23. Straitness and the Prophets The Prophets encompassed a struggle when they came to mankind to preach. Allah says in the Quran to Prophet Muhammad: [7:2] A Book revealed to you-- so let there be no straitness in your breast on account of it-- that you may warn thereby, and a reminder close to the believers. The breast of the Prophet Muhammad was meant to be straitened because of what he was meant to preach. The literal meaning of the word strait is narrow. It is used to describe pain and difficulty. But despite Allah saying that "let there be no straitness in your breast on account of it", the p
  24. (bismillah) In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the most merciful. May He ward misconceptions from our souls and help us attain certainty. ßóÊóÈó Úóáóì äóÝúÓöåö ÇáÑóøÍúãóÉó He has decreed upon Himself Mercy. (6-12) The question is based upon the attribute of Mercy. It is commonly known that Allah has created humanity out of His Mercy. Therefore, Since we say Allah has created everything out of His Mercy, I raise two questions: 1) Is the attribute of Mercy created by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì? 2) If it is a creation, why did Allah allow it to partake in His actions? i.e. Does Mercy govern Allah or
  25. In The Name of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. Assalamualaykum wa RAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATOH. I hope you are all in the best of health and faith. :D Recently, on another thread, Satyaban used the word "satuguru". I was wondering what it means and, so, would be very grateful if he could any other adherent of Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism) could answer me about that. I have seen on the internet some Hindus who reject the whole notion of idols - or, atleast, this is what I have understood which MAY BE WRONG. Can you shed some light as to whether such people exist in Sanata
