  1. What are the formula for a revolution? Iranian Revolution is the model. Stand Up for Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) singly, twos and threes Every action out of The Ten: 1. Prayer 2. Fast 3. Charity 4. Khums 5. Hajj 6. Jihad ... 10. Tawalla, defines us & it takes 7 parts of the body to do it.
  2. Assalamu alaykum! Which are the things that a reverted to Islam have to know?
  3. Alhamdulilah, All this because of another thread Converts, Reverts, extrovert, introverts, invert, lil Uzi vert, Gerald levert...convicts, ex convicts!! Assimilation programs, rehabilitations programs?? You people would make new Muslims feel like unfortunate untouchables straight from an animal shelter. Can it not just be new believers or new brothers and sisters of the faith? What is a born Muslim? Technically every soul is pure before being mutilated by its parents or society. There is this pride with “born” Muslims who are from Muslim countries or raised Muslims that serves as a way to make themselves feel better about themselves in a hierarchy way. The bottom line is I have seen a lot of so called born Muslims from Muslim countries who are almost no different from Kuffar. They are out in the dunya here in states doing whatever. I see the kids of Born Muslim parents doing worse things than kuffar kids. A lot of born Muslims in Muslim countries are doing Islamic rituals as cultural habits or cultural norm and not necessarily for the pleasure of Allah. Their hearts are not really about Islam. They would rather be in another country not living as a Muslim or they wish their country wasn’t as “Islamic” strict. I have been to Muslim countries such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia and lived in Malaysia and Singapore and I can tell you there are “born” Muslims there who don’t know Jack about Islam. A lot of the Arabs only know the language but not Islam. And a lot of the so called Born Shia only know Ali or Hussein and when to come to the masjid and put on a Tear show for Karbala. Both of my parents are Muslim but as an individual I had to embrace Islam and act upon the pillars of my faith no matter where I am in the world especially because it’s easy to be involved in everything haraam in the states because it’s the norm. Even if you are raised Muslim that individual has to find his or her way to the straight path of Allah. Giving new brothers and sisters these systematic identity terms that segregate them as believers is something that even the Christians don’t do here in the states. Some Christians May call themselves born again or reformed which is way better in my opinion. Assimilate the converts ?? Assimilate the reverts?? Sounds like terms for ex convicts getting freshly out of prison who have no money, education, or communication abilities. Awwww! Look at the poor convert/revert Muslim! Should we offer him a meal? Yes, give him Some dates! it’s sadiqah! Can you say SALAAAAM WA LAIKUM??? One thing you can do to make new brothers and sisters feel part of the faith is talk to them like people and befriend them like they are human. Talk to them about their struggles and your struggles. Learn their culture and teach them yours. The foreign Arab and Shia Muslims are socially inept here in the states. They are outta of touch so they isolate themselves in their exclusive cultural center “masjids” to feel better about themselves I guess. It’s really the Sunni tableeki Pakistani brothers and African American Muslims doing the ground work for Islam on the street level which really matters. They make new Muslims feel like Muslims without giving them segregated degrading titles. I saw on another thread someone say what what if their kids marry a a white foreign Muslim or even worse a black Muslim??? Whaaaaaat? The ummah 2019 everybody. Smh This is why when the Mahdi is here Islam is going to seem like a totally different religion. Just how prepared are you guys for the Mahdi? May Allah have mercy on the believing men and believing women.
  4. Hi, I live in the UK and I study Law and sociology at university. Can anyone tell me a link to a website or any information on how to get entry to Qom Hawza, I am looking to start full time education at Qom hawza after I finish my Law degree.

I heard it was free and they give you accommodation as well as spending money. the qomicis.org website isn't working for me I don't know why, if you could tell me why I would be grateful. Thanks everyone.

    Shias in Russia

    Can anyone inform me about Shias in Russia? I'm planning to study there next year and I hope I would be able to find a Shia community there. I know there are a significant minority in Dagestan and urban Moscow but are there any other places with a Shia minority? I tried to search it online but I can't seem to find anything. If anyone knows of any Shia centers in Russia then please kindly inform me about it and maybe even give me a google maps link.
  6. Respected brothers and sisters if you had the opportunity to ask Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) any question whatsoever possessing any scientific, jurisprudential, ethical, moral significance what would you ask. it can be as many questions as you want and mainly those ones you truly wish to be answered, and no matter the caliber of the question the commander of the faithful will indeed have an answer. perhaps some of the brothers or sisters could also aid in answering any of those questions which you pose and if not those questions can allow us to furthermore ponder and postulate over their significance.
  7. Sallam Alikum, http://www.discoveringislam.org/shia_mahdi.htm I don't know where to start here but they make "The Shia Mahdi" as such a horrible person. What are those sources they're referring to?
  8. Salam respected brothers and sisters in Islam I earnestly plead that I may receive the advice of your respective personages, for your opinions and ideas will most evidently illuminate my heart and strengthen my mind in aiding this young girl in following the religion of the Ahlul Bayt ((عليه السلام)) the catholic girl is very receptive to any religious advice and conversations I have been having with her, but it is very difficult for me to convince her due to the nature of her family and culture (Mexican). She completely agrees with me in most of the topics that I have raised for her in regards to alcohol she is 100% on board with me as for nightclubs she will never enter such despicable places in her life, and as for modesty she has been improving gradually when it comes to clothing. Sometimes I can become a bit uneasy and show a form of anger if I see her dressing in a way that is not deemed modest, for example the other day I saw her wearing a shirt that showed her shoulders and although she agreed that she will cover up and not show her shoulders she couldn’t understand exactly why it was immodest if in her perception “they’re just shoulders”, or for example my dismay of her wearing ripped jeans which she agrees with, but doesn’t understand why I disagree with her wearing jeans that only have holes in the knee area, as she sees it quiet confusing why showing ones knees is immodest. Now the likes of me and other individuals of our faith and community understand completely the logic of these things but how can I explain to her a girl who lives in a very open society and culture that showing your shoulders, knees, and hair is not modest. In some cases that we do debate or converse in regards to religion if she finds that she does not have an answer or is left a bit perplexed she instantly reverts back to the notion that there must be an explanation to her certain belief or idea that she is arguing and in order to rebuttal my arguments she needs to look more which in a way is a portrayal of a form of cognitive dissonance. I know the difficulties that may surround her in regards to not only the vast cultural changes that she may need to undergo, but also taking into consideration the impact changing her religion or her lifestyle may perhaps be . I try my best to be understanding with her and not rush things or overwhelm her. My current methodology is that I am trying to first bring her closer to her own religion in order to not make it seem as if I am just forcing my own beliefs on her, For example in regards to modesty or what may otherwise pertain I give her examples of Mary the mother of Jesus as well as scriptural and textual evidences from the Bible in order to be a form of authority upon her to follow in which she complied completely after seeing such evidences in regards to certain clothing that she will not wear anymore. I believe that after I get her in tune with the essential primordial messages of our holy Prophet Esa ((عليه السلام)) and the pure fundamental messages that he brought forth through the undistorted portions of the Bible it will be a much easier transition when I begin to introduce Islamic doctrine and also provide a dichotomy between the two; And in the end she said that if I am able to truly prove to her that Jesus is not the son of God then she will accept Islam inshallah. It is a tumultuous wave that I am riding and I don’t think there is a very good chance of her reverting due to that essential clinging to culture and the reality that is already established with her in regards to her own personal outlook on life, but as Allah says in the Qur'an we cannot guide those whom we please, but rather Allah guides those whom he pleases, and I will hope to inshallah not only portray to her the best message I can of Islam but also tell her to sincerely pray for the truth for through that sincere prayer Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can open and illuminate her heart towards the path of the Prophet and his holy progeny. Respected brothers and sisters I was hoping if you can perhaps give me advice in regards to my difficult situation as well as perhaps provide me with an argument that would be deemed fit to an individual who cannot conceptualize why showing ones shoulders, knees, and so on is immodest taking into consideration their cultural background and worldview understanding. There are so many factors that play when it comes to her conversion therefore I need to solidify her foundation so she becomes unwavering to the many strong winds or tumultuous waves that she will evidently encounter if she does decide to convert which I see as highly unlikely but in the end all we can do is provide the hujjat and hope for the best inshallah through the grace of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)

Interesting to read Nicolae Ceaușescu had a close relationship with Muslims countries like Iran, was anyone else aware of this?

  11. I've seen so many posts on insects and such in households but I'm wondering what are the laws and rulings on Muslims for house pests like insects (flies, rats, geckos, moths, spiders, cockroaches etc.)? should one kill them or just take them out of your home without harming them? And what about if they're outside of your home (not necessarily right around your house). This has been a problem for years now but what has been our commends on this matter?
  12. I feel like I'm losing faith in shiism. So many things such as the building of shrines above the graves of the Imams never made sense to me and people calling out Imam Ali and not Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is reminiscent of what Christians do as in calling out Isa. Channels such as the Sunni defense and anti majos also negatively effects my faith. The thought of there being a chance that we could somehow be Mushriks by taking part in these things are quite concerning. Also things such as prominent Sunni scholars of the past whom are very educated have given fatwas denouncing Shias as being kafirs. In addition things such as the claim Shias are the dominant sect in Iran because of the invasion of the safavids and how a persian nationalist contributed to this as well is also very concerning. Also the claim that Shia hadith is inauthentic and there being anonymity in them unlike Sunni hadith with chains of narrators and clarity. What most worries me is the shirk committed by the aforementioned shrine visiting and the thought this is good for your religion and calling other than Allah. Need help quickly, thank you.
  13. Asalaam wa laikum, Anyone have any Hadith sources or book sources in regards to Imam Ali and Fatimah love for each other. Read a lot of stuff about Muhammad SAW and his love for Kadhijah (عليه السلام). but feel like I haven’t read as much about them as husband and wife. Thank you,
  14. Do you guys think unity between our these two religions would be good? (Unity as in support each other and focus on common grounds) I think so personally. And the comment I took a screenshot of, I agree with, because both religions are trying to serve God.
  15. Asalam aleykum dear brothers and sisters. I have an Islamic question that fits my personal situation. I want to have more information about how to handle my situation. It's as follows: I live in the Netherlands and my wife lives in Pakistan. We've been married for over a year now. In the Netherlands I study and in 2 years I will be finishing my study. Then I can work and get my wife to the Netherlands ( due to my stable income) Each year I visit my wife in the summer during holidays. Then we will also sleep together. But the problem is that her parents don't allow me and her to have intercourse with each other. We are allowed to sleep together but we aren't allowed to have intercourse. I don't know what to do. Because in Islamic point of view having intercourse is legal. It's even illegal to deny sexual feelings for each other while being married. On the other hand having intercourse will be against the will of her parents. Also I will break their trust. I hope you can help me out with this question. Greetings, Jawad
  16. Read the Reddit comments to understand what the thread was about, since the post has since been deleted. ....................................................................................... I'm so tired of the utterly nonsensical and VERY COMMON Sunni notion of 'I am happy to seek unity with Shias as long as they don't curse/insult/abuse any Sahaba, and especially NOT Aisha, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman. Firstly, any Shia claim regarding the sahabi that happens to go against the Sunni narrative is considered insulting. Secondly, and more importantly, is that the same notion is true for Shias... You are insulting the Ahlul Bayt by not accepting them as divinely appointed leaders of Allah, and infallible individuals, and perfect preservers of the religion of Islam, and a high means of seeking closeness to Allah (intercession). Not only are you insulting revered Shia figures by not following them, you are commiting MAJOR shirk by giving a false attribute to Allah, by saying that Allah has not always appointed an infallible leader on this Earth, and that there currently isn't an infallible leader. Furthermore, the real kicker is that plenty of revered Shia figures, such as Abu Talib (رضي الله عنه), are considered kuffar by Sunnis. Is this not insulting? So, how can we Shias unite with Sunnis based on their own fallacious logic? Shias are the minority, and Sunnis are the majority. It makes Sunnis think that they are Orthodox and that they have to unite with Heterodox for political and humanitarian reasons, and that Shias must make [ridiculous] compromises. Shias are far more receptive to the unity message, because we actually understand Sunni Islam, and can see the commonalities. We understand that we can't make Sunnis compromise on their beliefs. Simply by being the minority within Islam, by nature we Shias already understand Sunni beliefs, whereas Sunnis have a basic strawman understanding of Shia beliefs... which is natural, considering that they are the majority. Anyways, the point of my post is the following: Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given. ...This is to show that we Shias and Sunnis can unite, but we cannot unite upon revered figures and imamah. ...This will also serve as a way of showing Sunnis that this argument of theirs makes no sense. Another important question we may ask is "What about commonly revered figures like Imam Ali (عليه السلام) who is given different status in both sects? Can we unite upon Imam Ali (عليه السلام)?" ...a common Sunni criticism of political unity is that "Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) is given an improper status in Shia religion because they call upon him... tawassul (intercession) of the 'dead' is Shirk! So there is absolutely no room for unity since we can't even agree on the status of the sahabi" [yes, I am aware that the Imams (عليه السلام) are still alive, but Sunnis don't believe this...] I would love to hear your thoughts. Wassalam. JazakAllah Khair. Fi sabilillah.

This has been endorsed by eminent Shīʿī scholars and academics as one of the most valuable insights on the Hidden Imam in English.
  18. It is interesting to note that, there is a 'DUA OF THE DAY,' HADITH OF THE DAY', but, there is no 'VERSE OF THE DAY' IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE AN Islamic FORUM? So in what HADITH AFTER THIS will they believe? 77-50
  19. Assalamo alaikum, I was wondering whether there were any Prophets that were black or of very dark colour? If there were, who they were, and how do we know for sure about the colours. Also, what about the prominent Prophets, such as Hazrat Isa (A.S.), Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S.), and others, what complexion where they of? It's just a general curiosity, and I'm not targeting any sensitive topics or such, just want to gain some knowledge because as i've grown being taught about such personalities, but for some odd reason i'd only think of them as white or fair prophets, i guess its just how we've been wired to think, even as children, even though i don't remember my parents or teachers ever specifying such a thing. Looking forward to all the feedback,
  20. The Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim In the name of Allah most gracious most Merciful. La illaha illAllah Muhammador Rasoolullaah May Allah shower his blessings on Muhammad and his Ahlul Bayt. Asalaam wa laikum brothers and Sisters, Alhamdulilah, for the past year when I turned 40 years of age strange occurrences happened to me and in these strange occurrences I believe that an insight was given to me as to a more definitive structural outlook of believers and outlook of disbelievers or unbelievers. I do not claim to receive revelation or alter revelation of the Holy Qur'an in any form. I only seek to understand Allahs Holy Book and how it relates to the nature of our existence in the past, present, and future. Please do give thought and reflection so that we all may enhance our understanding of our religion and ourselves. I was Born and raised only by title as a Sunni Muslim for most of my teenage years and then introduced to Ahlul Bayt in a blessed strange occurrence on the 19th of Ramadhan in the year 2000. For years I saw disbelievers as any religion outside the precincts of Al Islam with the exception of the people of the book whom I saw as Christians and Jews etc who lost their ways and went astray into disbelief. But then after some strange occurrences leading up to my 40 birthday while in the midst of reflection and thought one night in Rajab, it suddenly dawned on me at that moment! Human beings are two different species! The Holy Qur'an breaks us into two different species, Believers and Disbelievers. As we are created from dust ranging widely, We look alike and have physical features that resemble that of being of the same human race, but our patterns of thought and nature are on a completely different signal. This signal is the very signal that would not allow the two species to ever peacefully co exist throughout the time upon the Earth which we know as the ever revolving battle between good vs evil. The Holy Qur'an mentions how the two species kill each other by nature. This is why the Angels questioned Allah about the very existence of Man before being created and Allah scolded them. The Angels limited in knowledge only understood that in free will being a huge factor in the existence for man would give the disbelieving men and jinn the drive for war and bloodshed and rebellion and against Allah and his believing servants. So Allah revealed the exalted personalities which were to come through the loins of Adam AS over the course of time. Free will is part of the factor which creates the signal that separates the two species of humans. Allah mentions in the Qur'an how he could have made us one Nation but he didn’t. The unbelievers are those who fully exercise free will in believing there is no God and their desires become their God or they attribute others to God or even believe themselves to be a God like Ibliss, Nimrod, Pharaoh etc. By exercising full free will their hearts become blackened and hard like stone and in which a seal is set around that stone and then you have the expression their fate is sealed. They are therefore deaf, dumb, and blind. They are on a complete different signal which is why surah Kafirun was revealed. The Holy Qur'an is a signal to the believers who would be coming from different backgrounds through the loins of believers and Disbelievers alike warning them to submit which is what Islam essentially means, Those who submit their free will to Allah and are in peace, because the reality is that there is no free will outside the Tawhid of Allah. All creation outside of free will recognizes the Oneness and majesty of Allah. Those who believe are on the same signal of oneness even if they are not of Al Islam itself. It’s this signal which drives believers to Al Islam. It is how Allah makes the believers. If you read suratul Jinn, in this chapter believing jinns sought request to the presence of Muhammad SAW and so they explained how a group of them are believers and the others are like a different species or group who attribute sins and daughters with Allah. This is nature of the disbelievers to willfully sin and deceive and cause mischief in rebellion to the existence of Allah. There is no conscious or remorse with their sin and it’s purposeful. All the major sins are the same for them and they all excel at certain sins more that others. Like the believers who excel at certain good deeds and gain status in Jannah it is the same for people of Jahannam in regards to their evil deeds. On judgment day these disbelievers and munafiqoon who were amongst believer ranks will show up blackened faces and disfigured and bad smells. The true nature of their evils and who they really are will show. The disbelievers are a different species and This is why Allah forbids believers from eating their meat and taking them for friends and marrying them because They will always be of a rebellious sinful nature and only seek to do you harm and pull you away from the straight path. They don’t guard their thoughts and modesty. Their ambition to fulfill there desires is unguarded and they will oppress and transgress in fulfilling those desires in beastly ways and systematically. When believers sin they not only sin against themselves but they participate in sins that essentially are helping disbelievers rebel. The major Sins that are characteristic of the unbelievers can deform the soul of a believer and therefore he has to be cleansed through repentance or the grave or hellfire. When you think about the worlds problems most stem from disbelievers machinations and beastly ways. You watch the news and see a story and think to yourself who would do such a thing? The disbelievers would do such things because their minds work differently. Their lust for murder, raping, stealing, control, abuse, fornicating, gambling, drinking, vanity, etc is strong within them as individuals and collectively as towns, cities and nations. Allah has constantly been destroying certain lands based on not just the unbelief but the heavy sins that accompany unbelief. Allah mentions this in the Qur'an many times. In the Shaitan’s war against man he has everyone fighting against each other which takes the focus off him and his allies. There are believing Christians who are monotheistic but it is plagued by munafiqoon pretending to be Christian by calling Jesus the son of God or God outright. These are pagan Christians which are essentially unbelieving hypocrites and these type of hypocrites are in the ranks of Islam and most worldly religions who’s main principal is Tawhid as well. Allah knows the believing hearts and disbelieving hearts. They can’t fool Allah. The disbelievers aim is to disprove Allahs existence and deteriorate society by turning what’s unlawful into lawful and turning what’s lawful into unlawful. These are the owners of the fire, the people on the left who will be the losers on judgement day. It is in Gods mercy that we are not just Muslim but Shia Muslim Accepting all tenants of Allahs universal holy book and order. It makes us the upper echelon of believers. So it is imperative that we hold on to the rope of faith firmly. Those who didn’t accept all tenants but had tawhid will have to answer to Allah but salvation is attainable. Remember Muhammad SAW asked that of his ummah even those who just held on to La illaha illAllah will attain Jannah at some point and the last man to come out of Jannah will have had held on to just that, leaving Shaitan with those disbelievers he was meant to be with and not one believer. Give glad tidings to the believers when you see them especially because you don’t know the psychological duress that the enemies of Allah have them under in many different environments. There are believers who haven’t formally taken shahadah walking around trying to make sense of the evils in this world not realizing that the disbelieving men and women have joined forces with the like minded of the disbelieving jinn devils. I read a Hadith a long time ago in Muhammad says “those who understand Islam are in fact Muslim by heart”. I believe this refers to that universal signal of tawhid and goodness. Inshallah may Allah have mercy on the believing men and women around the world and forgive us our sins of ignorance, sins of arrogance, and sins of negligence.
  21. Are keeping Hamster as pets permissible in Islam?
  22. For the past couple of weeks, I have heard about how Sheikh Jaffer Jaffer has said something controversial about some Pakistani cultural practices. In my community, there has been a huge uproar from the Pakistani side. Anyways context aside, does anyone know what he said and as well what are your opinions on it. (I personally think that you should not be getting so mad about it because it is culture not religion)
  23. Is watching romantic movies or shows haram? What if one doesn't look at "those" scenes? If there's sources like from Sayid Sistani, that would be awesome.
  24. Aslam o Alaikum, Ya Ali((عليه السلام)) Maddad. I wanted to ask there are 12 Imams, but is there any particular reason to Call it Fiqah-e-Jaffer, rather than putting name of anyother Imam, thanks, May Allah guide everyone to send LANAT on the enemies of Ahlulbyt.
