  1. I like to share the video of the Juloos/ gathering of Ashura in Karachi, Pakistan this year 2023. This is necessary for information of those who are not aware of peaceful and religious rituals performed according to the sayings of Shia scholars.
  2. Salaams I thought I'd share this lecture by Dr. Chris Hewer (A Christian) on Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) especially for this month of Muharram, which I feel respects Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) and his marytrdom. He has other lectures of course, but this talk focuses more on the aspect of martyrdom between the faiths that serve to broaden understanding. I thought this would be helpful for those who identify as Christians to be able to relate.
  3. As 100 days passed, this thread would be dedicated to the Hero, Soldier of Islam, Shahid Lieutenant General Hajj Ghasem Suleimani. "And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision [3:169]" Link to download the video
  4. Condolences to the Imam of our time, Imam Sahib uz-Zamaan (atfs) on martyrdom anniversary of Janabe Mohsin (a.s.), the unborn child of Imam Ali (a.s.) and Janabe Fatema Zehra (s.a.). May Allah's سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى curse be upon the killer of Janabe Mohsin (a.s.) and those who were satisfied with the event. https://www.seratonline.com/8668/hazrat-mohsin-ibn-ali-a-s-a-victim-of-oppression-and-terrorism/ I do not see the event in SC Calendar sister @Hameedeh
  5. 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.
  6. Salaam, Within 50 years of the Prophet's (saw) demise, his grandson gets brutally killed in Karbala along with his family and friends. The Prophet's (saw) progeny is made captive, dragged across the Ummah's domain and imprisoned. One would think that every single Muslim would ask this question - what happened? Instead, all we get are fingers pointed at us about how not to remember the Progeny of the Prophet (saw). Based on the Sunni propensity for violence over cartoons and movies, is it going too far to say that my sunni brothers would have held protests,cried foul and screamed for justice if Yazeed's forces just drew cartoons of the Progeny of the Prophet (saw)? At the very least, my sunnis brothers would have asked, "What happened?"
  7. Audhu Billahi Minash Shaithanir Rajee Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem Assalamu Alaikom So, last night I had a dream where I was travelling with a group of people through some small towns, where we entered a library. There was a part where nobody else went, containing Islamic books. The writing was in some Arabic or possibly Farsi/Urdu alphabet. I didn't pay attention to the lettering, I just knew what they were. Kneeled down beside me, was the grey outline of a man, who introduced himself as a martyr of Karbala. He also said he knew Imam Husayn (alaihe salam). Then he left, and I believe he left a green ring near the bookshelf. I continued travelling, but didn't speak for the reat of the journey. I only listened to one man, who I knew was a musician and alcoholic, plus friend of my family and a devout Christian. He seemed happy, but a little worryless. He was the only one I saw until I woke up. When I did wake up, the only names I could think of were Ali Akbar and Abdul Aala. What could this mean??? Thank you.
  8. Due to the closeness of Arbaeen, I think it is good to share some videos related to this matter, with the point of view pf our time's Imam(af). Here's episode 2, I've shared it's first episode before.
  9. Martyrdom of Imam Ali (as) After the Battle of Nahrawan, 'Ali (a) tried again to mobilize the Iraqis for a battle against the Syria army. However, none except a few accompanied him. On the other hand, Mu'awiya, who was aware of the situation in Iraq and their passivity, invaded regions under 'Ali's control (a) and attempted to debilitate his power by invading Iraq. On the morning after he was struck by a sword on his head (before his demise), 'Ali (a) said: "May God grant me better than them (people) and appoint worse than me over them." Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 70, p. 53. On the morning of Ramadan 19, 40/January 29, 661, (during the days in which 'Ali (a) was mobilizing an army for Siffin), he was struck with a sword by Abd al-Rahman b. Muljam al-Muradi and died from its injury two days later. Historical accounts have reported the collaboration of three Kharijites in an attempt to kill three individuals: 'Ali (a), Mu'awiya, and 'Amr b. al-'As. Some accounts have also mentioned the role of a woman named Qutam in this assassination, however, this seems to be more of an embellishment as opposed to fact. The children of 'Ali (a) i.e. al-Hasan (a), al-Husayn (a), and Muhammad b. al-Hanfiyya, accompanied by 'Abd Allah b. Ja'far buried him in Ghariyyayn (present day Najaf) and hid his grave.[Al-Shaykh al-Mufid, Muhammad b. Muhammad, al-Irshad, vol. 1, p. 27-28 ] This was because if the Banu Umayya or the Kharijites knew about his burial place, they would exhume his body and treat it with disrespect.[Sayyid b. Tawus, Farhat al-ghari, p. 93; al-Majlisi, Muhammad Baqir, Bihar al-anwar, vol. 42, p. 222 ] Will and Advice There are a few hadiths narrated from 'Ali (a) that contain to his advice to his children with regards to his funeral rites: the way of his burial, ablution, shrouding and the performing of prayers over his body.[Al-Majlisi, Muhammad Baqir, Bihar al-anwar, vol. 36, p. 5 ] He also asked them to hide his tomb and to keep its location a secret.[Al-Majlisi, Muhammad Baqir, Bihar al-anwar, vol. 42, p. 290 ] When he was wounded by Ibn Muljam, 'Ali (a) advised his sons, al-Hasan and al-Husayn: "I advise you (both) to fear Allah and not to pursue the (pleasures of this) world even though they may run after you. Do not be sad over anything of this world that you have been denied. Speak the truth and act (in expectation) for reward [from God]. Be an enemy of the oppressor and a helper of the oppressed. I advise you (both), all my children, all members of my family, and everyone that my writing may reach: to fear Allah, to keep your affairs in order, and to maintain good relations amongst yourselves- for I have heard your grand-father [the noble Prophet (s)] saying, "Solving disagreements is better than years of praying and fasting." (Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in mind with regards to orphans. Do not allow them to starve and they should not be harmed in your presence. (Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in mind with regards to your neighbours, because they were a subject of the Prophet's advice. He would advise extensively in their favour such that we thought he would allow them a share in inheritance. (Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in mind with regards to the Qur'an. No one should surpass you when acting in accordance to it. (Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in mind with regards to prayer, because it is the pillar of your religion. (Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in mind with regards to your Lord's House (the Ka'ba). Do not forsake it as long as you live, because if it is abandoned, you will not be spared. (Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in mind with regards to the Jihad by helping with your property, lives and tongues in the way of Allah. You should have respect for kinship and spend for others. Don't turn away from one another and don't sever relationships. Do not cease bidding good and forbidding from evil, lest the mischievous dominate you. And then [after this], if you will pray, yor prayers will not be granted. Then he said: O' sons of 'Abd al-Muttalib, certainly I do not wish to see you plunging harshly into the blood of Muslims shouting "'Amir al-Mu'minin has been killed!". Beware, do not kill anyone because of me except for my killer. Wait until I have died by his (Ibn Muljam's) strike. Then, strike him once for his strike on me, and do not dismember his limbs, for I have heard the Messenger of Allah (s) saying, "Avoid cutting limbs even if it is a rabid dog."[Nahj al-balagha, letter. 47 ] Hiding the Tomb 'Ali (a) asked for his tomb to be hidden because he was worried that the Kharijites and the hypocrites would exhume and vandalize his body.[Al-Majlisi, Muhammad Baqir, Bihar al-anwar, vol. 42, p. 328; al-Shaykh al-Mufid, Muhammad b. Muhammad, al-Irshad, vol. 1, p. 10 ] Only his children and a few companions knew of his burial place. It wasn't until the era of al-Mansur al-'Abbasi in 135/753, when Imam al-Sadiq (a) revealed that the location of his grave was in Najaf.[Al-Shaykh al-Mufid, Muhammad b. Muhammad, al-Irshad, vol. 1, p. 13 ] Source: http://en.wikishia.net/view/Imam_'Ali_b._Abi_Talib_(a)#Martyrdom
  10. On 14 Ramadan, 67 AH Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (RA) decided to leave his palace. He said to his companions: ''The siege will weaken us more and more! Let's go out and die martyrs!'' Only seventeen persons obeyed Mukhtar. They went out to fight the big army that surrounded his palace. Mukhtar was sixty-seven years old. He fought bravely and died a martyr for Islam. Mukhtar was an early Shia Islamic revolutionary based in Kufa, Iraq who led an abortive rebellion against the Umayyad Caliphs in vengeance for the death of Husayn ibn ‘Ali at the Battle of Karbala and the expulsion of Ibn Al-Zubayr’s governor in Kufa. Mus'ab cheated the persons who stayed in the palace. He promised not to harm them if they came out. When they opened the gates of the palace, he ordered his soldiers to kill them all. He executed seven thousand people on one day. The Kufians had never seen such a horrible massacre before. Mus'ab ordered his soldiers to arrest Mukhtar ’s wife. Her name was Umra. Her father’s name was al-Numan bin Bashher al-Ansary. She was a believing woman. Mus'ab asked her to disown her husband. She said: ‘’I won’t disown him. He fasted in the day. He said his prayers at night. He sacrificed himself for Allah and His Apostle. He took revenge on Imam Husayn’s killers.’’ Mus'ab said with threat: ‘’I’ll kill you!’’ The believing woman said: ‘’To die a martyr for Allah is better than this world. I’ll die and enter paradise! I prefer Imam Ali to everything!’’ Mus'ab decided to kill her. In the dark, a person took her to a place between Hira and Kufa. In that desert, the person beheaded her. She died a martyr for Imam Husayn’s aims. Mukhtar and his wife passed away. They wrote a bright page in the history of Jihad. The page has illuminated the way for generations.
  11. Salaam! On Youtube, Allama Sayyid Mukhtar Shah Qadri Rizvi has a series of lectures on the lives of famous awliya Allah. Amongst this lecture series he also has started a series of lectures on the lives of the Imams. He has done from Imam Zayn al Abidin (as) to Imam Ali Reza so far ... Here is the link on Youtube for Imam Zayn al Abidin: It is in Urdu/Hindi. I found it very informative, intellectual, and (in this one) emotional. I hope all fair minded people will enjoy listening to it to increase their love of Ahlul Bayt and Aal Muhammad (sal allahu alayhi wa sallam).

  14. (salam) Today is the anniversary of Martyrdom of Imam al-Hassan(a.s.). It is benefitial to read some wisdom qouted from His majesty: - Imam(a.s.) was asked: what is generosity? His majesty(a.s.) answered: To give before being asked by the needy, and to donate food on the famine(starvation). قیل له - علیه السلام - ما الکرم ؟ قال : الابتداء بالعطیة قبل المسألة واطعام الطعام فی المحل . تحف العقول ، ص 227 - Someone asked Imam(a.s.): what is niggardliness? Imam Hassan(a.s.) replied: To think what you`ve kept from your property is your honor, and what you`ve donated has been wasted and vanished. قیل له - علیه السلام - ما الشح ؟ قال : أن تری ما فی یدک شرفا وما أنفقته تلفا . تحف العقول ، ص 227 Source: Tuhaf al-Oqool, P. 227.
  15. assalamu alaykum! I am looking for further information -- preferably as a link to or name of a book (with author)-- or lecture -- on the lives of the following members of the blessed Ahlul Bayt: Imam Zayd ibn Ali (as) Imam Yahya ibn Zayd (as) Imam Abdullah ibn Hassan (as) Imam Muhammad Nafs al Zakiyyah (as) Imam Hassan al Muthanna I am fascinated by the pattern of the Alawid uprisings against the oppressive rulers from amongst Umayyads and Abbasids which began with Imam Husayn (a.s.) ... Thanks in advance.
  16. (bismillah) (salam) Dear brothers and sisters in faith I though it could be a good idea to share with you, on this holy day, the day of martyrdom of Lady Fatima Az-Zahra (salamu Allah alayha) two (saheeh) hadiths that I found about the exact date of her s.a. martyrdom . As you know there are two well-known narrations about the date of her martyrdom: 1- She s.a. lived 75 days after Prophet (pbuh) and martyred on 13th of Jumada Al-Awal . 2- She s.a. lived 95 days after Prophet (pbuh) and martyred on 3rd of Jumada Ath-Thani. I found two saheeh ( authentic) hadiths which prove the first narration : 1- محمد بن يحيى عن أحمد بن محمد عن ابن محبوب عن ابن رئاب عن أبي عبيدة عن أبي عبد الله ع قال: إن فاطمة ع مكثت بعد رسول الله ص خمسة و سبعين‏ يوما و كان دخلها حزن شديد على أبيها و كان يأتيها جبرئيل ع فيحسن عزاءها على أبيها و يطيب نفسها و يخبرها عن أبيها و مكانه و يخبرها بما يكون بعدها في ذريتها و كان علي ع يكتب ذلك.محمد بن يحيى عن أحمد بن محمد عن ابن محبوب عن ابن رئاب عن أبي عبيدة عن أبي عبد الله ع قال: إن فاطمة ع مكثت بعد رسول الله ص خمسة و سبعين‏ يوما و كان دخلها حزن شديد على أبيها و كان يأتيها جبرئيل ع فيحسن عزاءها على أبيها و يطيب نفسها و يخبرها عن أبيها و مكانه و يخبرها بما يكون بعدها في ذريتها و كان علي ع يكتب ذلك. Muhammad ibn Yahya from ibn Mahbob from (Ali) ibn Re'ab from (Ziyad ibn 'Esa) Abi Obayda from Abi Abdillah (Imam Sadiq a.s): Fatima s.a lived after Prophet seventy five days and she was so upset because of his father .... (Al-Kafi vol. 1 page 458) (All of the narrators are thighat (reliable) ) 2- عدة من أصحابنا عن أحمد بن محمد عن الحسين بن سعيد عن النضر بن سويد عن هشام بن سالم عن أبي عبد الله ع قال سمعته يقول‏ عاشت فاطمة س بعد رسول الله ص خمسة و سبعين‏ يوما لم تر كاشرة و لا ضاحكة تأتي قبور الشهداء في كل جمعة مرتين- الإثنين و الخميس فتقول هاهنا كان رسول الله ص و هاهنا كان المشركون و في رواية أخرى أبان عمن أخبره عن أبي عبد الله ع أنها كانت تصلي هناك و تدعو حتى ماتت ع. 'Idat un men ashabena from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Hussein ibn Sa'eed (ibn Hammad) from Nadhr ibn Sowayd from Hisham ibn Salim from Abi Abdillah (Imam Sadiq a.s.) : Fatima a.s. lived after Prophet seventy five days . She was not seen laughing or ... (All of the narrators are thighat (reliable) ) اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد و عجل فرجهم May God guide us so that we could be one of their true followers! Amen (wasalam)
