Today I learned that a person can identify himself as a Muslim but at the same time be a Mushrik in nature. To be a Muslim means to submit oneself to Allah and to be in submission only to Allah. Therefore if a person submits himself to something other than Allah then he is a Mushrik because he has assigned a partner to Allah and his submission is divided between what he is submitting himself to. Therefore to be a Muslim in name and nature, we must submit ourselves only to Allah, what we do should be for the sake of Allah and we must not submit to anyone or any thing besides Allah. Unfortunately many people now a days submit themselves to money, to other people who are their "bosses" or "commanders". They would fear the punishment of their masters more than they would fear their merciful and kind creator. This is what happened with the people of Kufa, although they called themselves Muslims, they were in reality submitting themselves to that which is other than Allah and as a result they killed Hussein (as) and left Islam and ceased to be Muslims without knowing. So remember, don't think you are a Muslim in nature just because you are a Muslim in name. To be a Muslim in nature you must submit yourself only to Allah, call only Allah for help, Ask for Sustanence from him and submit yourself to his will and his will only. Otherwise if you subject yourself to other humans for the sake of sustenance and you forget Allah and beg other humans for help, you will have replaced God and you would have attributed God's function to other humans. This is just something I learned at a Mosque today, I hope I have delivered it to you correctly and may Allah forgive me if I have made a mistake. I just thought this point was crucial for us to know and wanted to share it. Wasalam
If a married woman has relations with her husband's best friend, she makes arguments that it is OK we are JUST friends, I did not make him my husband. He fulfills my needs whenever I ask him, he takes care of me. And yes, he's very close to my husband, my husband can't refuse his request. The same thing mostly people do with Allah. They say it's OK to supplicate to others, prostrate, making Niyaz/ nazar etc as far as we did not call them God. While Allah clearly says, Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 186 ٢-١٨٦ وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ “And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me, indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.” Surat Ghāfir (The Forgiver) - سورة غافرAnd your Lord says, "Call upon Me; I will respond to you." Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible. Prophets (as) supplicated to Allah, other people too, mentioned in Quran. For Allah, fornicator and polytheist are on same level. Surah Noor, verse 3 The fornicator does not marry except a [female] fornicator or polytheist, and none marries her except a fornicator or a polytheist, and that has been made unlawful to the believers.
(bismillah) This thread is a refutation to the deceptive lies and baseless claims that the dajjal(deceiver) Bilal Philips uses to defame Shia Islam. Often times, we are told by the knowledgeable ones not to waste our time trying to argue with an ignorant person or one that lacks much knowledge as they may bring you down to their level. However, when you have a popular personality like Bilal Philips who feeds poison to the minds of millions of laymen deceived Muslims from all around the world , we Shia must not simply let him easily get away by feeding the minds of these deceived laymen Musims with Shia propaganda. Not only does this make the image of Shia Islam look negative to Sunnis, but it also alters the eman of the Shia laymen that lack knowledge in their Aqeedah Beliefs. With that being said, the deceptive statements that Bilal Philips makes in this video are false and do not reflect on Shia beliefs. He portrayed our beliefs of our Imams in a way that they have divine attributes that are similar and equivalent to Allahs(swt). Of course without doubt, it is absolute shirk to believe that Imam Ali(as) alone has the same power and divine attributes of Allah(swt). However, we do not reject the idea that Allah(swt) can give miracles to his imams just as he did for his prophets. For example, just as Allah(swt) gave Jesus(as) divine power to revive the dead, he also can give similar divine power to the imams. Moreover, Allah(swt) specifically stated in the Quran in ayat al tathir (33:33), that he wanted the Ahlulbayt to be unique from the rest of the believers by removing the impurities and errors from them. Lets look at what Allah says in the holy Quran in regards to the Ahlulbayt in Ayat Al-Tathir (33:33): "And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet's] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.(33:33)" Let us also see what Sahih Muslim; one of the most authentic books of hadith for Sunnis says in regards to this Ayat: (حدثنا) أبو بكر بن أبي شيبة ومحمد بن عبد الله بن نمير (واللفظ لأبي بكر) قالا حدثنا محمد بن بشر عن زكرياء عن مصعب بن شيبة عن صفية بنت شبية قالت عائشة خرج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم غداة وعليه مرط مرحل من شعر اسود فجاء الحسن بن علي فادخله ثم جاء الحسين فدخل معه ثم جاءت فاطمة فأدخلها ثم جاء علي فادخله ثم قال إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيرا (صحيح مسلم (261 هـ) الجزء7 صفحة130) 'A'isha reported that Rasoolallah went out one morning wearing a striped cloak of the black camel's hair that there came Hasan b. 'Ali. He wrapped him under it, then came Husain and he wrapped him under it along with the other one (Hasan). Then came Fatima and he took her under it, then came 'Ali and he also took him under it and then said: Allah only desires to take away any uncleanliness from you, O people of the household, and purify you (thorough purifying) (Sahih Muslim, Book 31 Number 5955) That being said, by removing the errors and impurities from them, Allah(swt) wanted the members of the household of the prophet to be completely righteous people and unique from the rest of the ummah. That being said, we can say that Allah(swt) has elevated their status for purifying them extensively Moreover, with a higher status than the rest of the believers maintained, if the Imams prayed and asked Allah(swt) to give them miracles to show their people of their time, then Allah(swt) alone will answer their prayers and give them these miracles they asked for just as he gave some miracles to Isa(AS) and the previous prophets. After reading this, you can now clearly see the difference between how I explained the power that our Imams can have and how he(bilal philips) deceivingly and falsely explained it. Plus, it is also worth to know that Bilal Philips is a pure Wahabi :shaytan:. Majority of the Sunni ulama even reject him as he believes that following a madhab of the four sunni schools is bidah. If you go on his website , he has a section on there listing "deviant" websites. Within these are websites belonging to sunnis as well as Sunniforum. Many madhabi sunnis listen to him and like him and they are not aware that he considers them "deviated" .It's amazing how an ignorant narrow minded person with little knowledge like Bilal philips can easily deceive a large audience. Subhanalla! May Allah(swt) curse every ignorant dajjal(deceiver) with little knowledge who misguides the ummah. This article is also helpful and reflects on what I written but in details. http://www.al-islam.org/underattack/3.htm Fi aman illah
