Nisa 136: O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray. According to Nisa 136 the article of faiths is different in shia perspectives. Can we call messengers as prophets or both prophets and imams? I am not shia nor sunnah muslim. I am just a muslim who believe only quran and hadiths
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 of people -. A name that can describe it and also other synonyms. Extra aref, aqil and so on. What more synonym is out there? Please let us know. What is the definition of each word? What is called or what we should call it altogether? What is the proper naming! The Host welcomes all to participate and hope all guests benefit from this topic.
(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 believed it! I was neither in the war nor was I opposed to the Imam (I was barely old enough to understand this stuff) but, if I was, at that time, one of his camp, I would have probably run away like those guys. The same was true for a lot of the people who accepted arbitration: they simply weren't clever enough to see through Ibn Aas' rouse. Many of the Kharjites, too, were not bad people. They were not out for personal gain or to profit and in fact had a very ascetic lifestyle but because they were not clever enough and hypocritical, they became the worst of the Imam's enemies, despite probably having good intentions and only wanting to please God. Now, if we believe that non-Muslims who have good intentions and tried their best to find the right religion but were, for whatever reason, unable to come to accept Islam as the right religion will also be accepted into Heaven, what about people like the Kharjites? Given that I can't exactly control how intelligent I am and if I will be able to see through another person's deceit, is it possible that they will also be forgiven?
Salaams, I have to give a 30 minute speech on the topic - Al Mumin mir'aat ul Mumin - A believer is a mirror of his brother. I brainstormed on certain things such as - To discuss on the origin of mirrors and their general day to day use in philosophical light. A man is a mirror of his own soul as his character is reflective of his belief Imam Sadiq's saying - Be unto us silent missionaries A brother in Iman should share his brother's feelings be they in sorrow or happiness so that he becomes like a mirror for him Any more suggestions of What's and How's regarding this speech? This is the first time I am giving such kind of a speech and I would love it to be understandable to the public. Shukran , Wassalaam
Salaam, normally I do not share stuff, so this is an exception.. I was reading Dr. Liyakat N. Takims last published book 'The Heirs of the Prophet: Charisma And Religious Authority in Shi'ite Islam' (amazon) and yootubed him.. this is quite good from a Western Schoolar of Islam: Enjoy, With Salaams,
