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.
Alhamdulillah. May Allah reward Br. Asadullah Ali
AOA, i just wanted to know if anyone could recommend any good shia scholars videos, or channels, in english. i'm trying to learn more about my religion, and hope that you'll all comment some good ways i can expand my knowledge. i will be learning through reading the Holy Quran, and Najul Balagha, but also wanted to listen to some good meaningful lectures, or short videos, you know how theres 'mercifulservant' and 'theprophetspath; on youtube. Are there any shia based channels like this? They make short videos and tell beautiful stories and very nicely relate things to tell about the topic they choose. Thank for the help in advance!! Jazakallah Khair <3
Salam warahma. My brothers, we need to speak truth about Aisha R. As a sunni, i have always respected and loved her. I recently learnt about the battle of jamal and just about all authentic narrations pertaining to it. To my knowledge, Aisha R went out with forces purely with the intention of reconciliation and reformation due to her status as Ummul Momineen. She did not question Ali Rs caliphate nor have the slightest intent of rebelling against him. She only went out thinking she could bring reform amongst people for Uthman Rs martyrdom. An agreement was reached between the army of Ali R and of Aisha, Talha and Zubayr R where both parties slept comfortably(based on the consensus of many historians, scholars and analysts). It was the people of fitna who deliberately consulted one another and ignited the fighting once more, causing both parties to think they betrayed each other. When Ali R recieved news of Zubayr Rs death, he cried as he saw his sword, saying 'how many times has this sword protected Rasoolallah?' Aisha R was not even on the battlefield the way people like Ammar Nakshawani(who i find very dishonest) make it out to be. She didnt even know that there was fighting going on until Ka'ab ibn sur told her to come out on her camel with the hope of stopping the fighting due to her status. As soon as Ka'ab R comes out, instructed by Aisha to judge by the Quran, the people of fitna realized that they will be exposed, and as a result shot arrows at Ka'ab R and went for the camel. Both Aisha and Ali R are yelling to stop the fighting and it is at this point that Aisha R realizes who the murderers of Uthman and the real evil people were. She prayed out loud saying Ya Allah curse the murderers of Uthman, the armies heard this and said it, and Ali R did the same upon hearing it When the battle ended, Ali R entered upon her and said Salam, asking how she is. She said Wsalam and said she is fine. Ali R said may Allah have mercy upon you and she said the same. Ali R found two men insulting Aisha ( much like extreme shias today). He ordered Qa'Qa R to lash them 100 times. When Aisha left Basra, Ali R walked out with her for miles, accompanying her bidding her farewell. Aisha spoke to the people of Basra saying 'oh children, some of us have transgressed against each other because of delaying and hastening(delaying to give bay'ah to Ali R, and rushing to avenge Uthman Rs death), so do not transgress one another. We are neither enemies to Ali nor is Ali an enemy to us. Wallahi there is nothing between me and Ali except what small quarrels ensues between a woman and her in laws. With me, he is the best of people' this is spoken publicly to the people of Basra Ali R responds by saying 'oh people wallahi she has spoken the truth, nothing was between us except the small quarrels between family members' he then followed with, and this my brothers is very important, 'she is the wife of your prophet in this life and the next' When Aisha was on her death bed, Abdullah ibn abbas entered and praised her, saying 'you are the wife of rasoolallah in this life and the next, and you are the one Allah proclaimed innocence of from the heavens'. Surely if Aisha was set to go to Hell fire (nauzubillah) as some shias say, wouldn't abdullah ibn abbas encourage her to repent? No, rather he praised her and said she is the wife of muhammad saw in this life and the next, as Ali R said. I urge you not to speak negatively of a woman Allah proclaimed innocence of in the Quran, a woman who played games and ate with the prophet pbuh, who would shower with him and who held his head in her lap when he passed away. My dear brothers, it is not as simple as some critiques make it out to be, i.e, aisha waging war vs Ali r. This is not true and we must be sincere. Please please please learn authentic narrations regarding this event, along with all of Aisha and Muhammad Saws beautiful marriage life.
As-Salam Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters, Before I start, I want to make it absolutely clear that I am in no way, shape, or form, ever going to post here in order to seem like I know everything or come across as brazen or rude. I am, honestly, a very intellectually curious person; I seek out information to try and find origins and truths and share them with people when I see minsinformation being absorbed. I am in my 20s and for some time, within my generation, the idea of an Illuminati has been spreading and spreading around, from social media to random other sources. Now, I am not going to comment on such a group, but I will discuss the figure of Baphomet and the blatently false stories about the entity. Baphomet, dear brothers and sisters, is an imagined Pagan deity. Imagined means made up, and yes it was. Believe it or not, the word Baphomet actually came from what Europeans heard and then translated as the name, Muhammad (Muhammad = Muhamet = Baphomet -- yes they are that stupid), by Arabs they came in to contact with in the Levantine and Maghreb region. It was perfect; they hated Islam, hated the idea of a Muhammad, a new prophet, other than their Jesus, being the true messenger of Allah. Unfortunately, in Europe at this time, you will find depictions of the Devil, red skinned, and large hooked-nosed to resemble the common stereotype of Jews of European origin (largely Slavic) that do in fact have similar noses. Well, not only the Jews were ridiculed by Christians, but so were we Muslims. Baphomet was the [Edited Out]ization of the name Muhammad by these fools...and then it became a term to describe the "devil" of non-Christian Pagans. So they were able to sting two birds with one term, sort of speak. They were able to make fun of us, our prophet, God's prophet...and make fun of Pagans, which largely satisfied their hateful crusade against women, Roma people and others during the European witch hunts and the Spanish Inquisition which happened just after Spain was made Catholic, having been Muslim for centuries (even longer than Iran! Imagine that!). So why am I posting this? Because I am tired of seeing people, and yes, many Muslims, posting about Baphomet all over the web, claiming it is some real entity or something we need to fear. NO! Baphomet is a European Christian lie; a fictional character used to scare the people of Europe into equating the prophet of God to the Devil. It was a way for governments to keep the TRUTH of Islam away from Europeans, for back in those days, to equate something to the Devil was considered serious, something that could bring real shame, death and universal outrage among or to them if they embraced whatever it was being condemned. Muslims need to be smarter. We have a heavy burden to carry. We have a beautiful faith, that people must know and we must at the same time stay on our toes. We are being assaulted from every angle; militarily, intellectually, physically (geographically)....before you buy into something, please research it! Allah ma'akum and Love and Light!
