  2. Sweden Quran burnings: Dozens injured in riots (cnn.com)
  3. Salam, So I happened to watch the ‘long awaited, brand spanking new’ talent show ‘The Shia voice’ on Imam Hussein TV3 last night and here are some thoughts on it; Production/direction wise, It seems like a template from the talent shows in Western media including but not limited to the camera shots and how it’s directed. For instance, The judges and contestants being followed by the camera from the car to the venue. Also, the two presenters/hosts and their roles before and after the contestant goes on stage. The absolute copy/paste of the roles from something like ‘Britain’s got talent’ is somewhat cringe-worthy. I suppose it’s being copied because it worked in Western media which is not a bad thing per se', but a little creativity would have been nice. What I absolutely felt uncomfortable with was the same concept of humour and subliminal mockery of the contestants who may not be performing to the level of others was shown; just as it would be in Western shows. And this is where the ‘entertainment value’ apparently is. When one contestant, who wasn’t performing to the level of others, was clearly struggling in his Noha recitation, the camera shots and actions of some judges were more than awkward to watch. The reason being, is that these contestants aren’t singing or clowning around; it’s what their performing (Noha etc) that is a very sensitive matter and should not be mocked, even subliminally or made/produced/directed for ‘entertainment value’. Despite my criticisms, I found that overall, the show was good, it appealed to its target audience and the youth are much better off watching an imperfect Shia talent show with lots of Quran, Noha and Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام), than watching Western talent shows. It’s a huge production endeavour and they seem to have pulled it off. There were some fantastic and talented contestants with admirable skills, and these shows can encourage more of the youth to engage within their communities and bring out their own talents for the service of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). All in all, I give ‘The Shia voice’ a thumbs up. Simply because I believe that anything with the mention of Allah Ta’ala and Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) is Baraka.
  4. Salaam everyone, I recently witnessed a family member playing a video loudly on the TV of a really bad quality Quran recitation on youtube this morning. It was not an old video, therefore of lesser audio quality, but a newly uploaded video which obviously has had issues with sound being digitally set to very high with the persons voice making microphone pops in the speaker and reverb set to a extra long delay which means it was a constant stream of high frequency scratching noise in the back ground due to the low quality. I usually don't mind and even enjoy the soothing atmosphere that someone reading Quran emits. This, however, was disturbing me as it was uncomfortable and literally felt it was hurting my ears and I felt it was not properly portraying the beauty of the Quran, hence not making it sound good. I find this unlucky for the video as the person reciting is probably doing great. I asked the person to please find another video as the quality of this specific video was bothering me. This seemed to offend the person a lot and I was told to leave the room and close the door. The person took it as a some insult and I feel my faith is perceived by him to be weak somehow as he compared it to another person that is not a believer. I need help to understand what to do here. Am I wrong for wanting a clearer and better quality of audio from a video? Is it wrong that I feel disturbed that the Quran is being read with such low quality loudly? How should I talk to this person? He is older then me and his ears have started to lose a bit hearing. Thank you for your help.
  5. Do Shias use the Holy Quran to help get rid of black magic like Sunnis? What verses do you recite?
  6. Salam, everyone. I am a Sunni Hanafi in Pakistan. In sh'Allah, I want to buy Quran tafsirs and increase my Islamic knowledge. Unfortunately, I am not proficient in Arabic and Urdu. I want to read Quran tafsirs that are written or have been translated into English. Please suggest 2 or 3 most widely acclaimed Tafsirs/Exegesis each for Shias and Sunnis. Shukeriya.
  7. This morning I was reading surah At-Taghabun and came upon this ayah, the translation mentioned stinginess of the soul and that picked my interest. I'm pretty curious about what it is and how does it affect us (spiritually, physically and mentally)? If anyone knows please let me know, the surah and translation are down below. فَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ مَا ٱسۡتَطَعۡتُمۡ وَٱسۡمَعُواْ وَأَطِيعُواْ وَأَنفِقُواْ خَيۡرٗا لِّأَنفُسِكُمۡۗ وَمَن يُوقَ شُحَّ نَفۡسِهِۦ فَأُوْلَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُفۡلِحُونَ (Sahih International) So fear Allah as much as you are able and listen and obey and spend [in the way of Allah ]; it is better for your selves. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul - it is those who will be the successful. -Surah At-Taghabun, Ayah 16
  8. Salam alaykum I just wanted to share this link with you to the Quran translation by M. H. Shakir, first time ever I found it with original footnotes by the editor M. H. Shakir. It is easy to see what Shakir thinks about the Ahlul Bayt, just take a look at 33:33 or 76:8. Khudahafez
  9. Aoa Everyone, I was wondering how do the Ayaat of Surah Mujadilah apply to the lives of Muslims in this time and age. I was personally interpreting it as the fact that thihar were words used by the man to divorce his wife in the pre Islamic era, when in fact he would not divorce her but come around later and act as if nothing happened, and so it does not mean those words have to be the ones used by Hazrat Khawla's husband, but instead they can be placed in the context of todays world, where as Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has stated that they do not mean that actually she has become like a mothers back to him, but now for the mental torture and his lack of control on his tongue he must make atonement, which is then further described by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Can anyone link what other scholar have to say about these ayats? Esp sistani and ghamdi? or is there a way to contact them, leave these questions for them? I will be honest, I am asking in reference to a personal situation. My father told my mother in our language (urdu) that 'mai tumhay farigh karta hun' (in an insullting tone saying i set you free (as if you are a characterless person who cannot be restrained)) and 'tumhay ab mai ghar se nikalta hun' (i am going to kick you out of the house). on other occasions he has used the words that now our relationship is finished. could these ayaat be applied in these lights? this is not just a one time anger issue, this is nearly ever week of my life the past 20 years, consistent mental abuse, just like with Hazrat Khawla RA. The above mentioned are two people i could talk to my father with reference to and he'd be willing to listen, he is the kind of person who goes back on his own words just to be always always, always right. no matter what he has to do to seem right. The Surah (1-4): 1. Certainly has Allah heard the speech of the one who argues with you, [O Muhammad], concerning her husband and directs her complaint to Allah . And Allah hears your dialogue; indeed, Allah is Hearing and Seeing. 2. Those who pronounce thihar among you [to separate] from their wives – they are not [consequently] their mothers. Their mothers are none but those who gave birth to them. And indeed, they are saying an objectionable statement and a falsehood. But indeed, Allah is Pardoning and Forgiving. 3. And those who pronounce thihar from their wives and then [wish to] go back on what they said – then [there must be] the freeing of a slave before they touch one another. That is what you are admonished thereby; and Allah is Acquainted with what you do. 4. And he who does not find [a slave] – then a fast for two months consecutively before they touch one another; and he who is unable – then the feeding of sixty poor persons. That is for you to believe [completely] in Allah and His Messenger; and those are the limits [set by] Allah . And for the disbelievers is a painful punishment.
  10. Commentary on the Chapter Nuh (Noah) in Quran by Br. Khalil Jaffer if you like it, and I am sure you will, on the suggested videos section, you can find the other sessions. ma salam :)
  11. Hello. First of all, English is not my main language of communication, so if there is something you didn't understand about my post, please do mention it and I will try to simplify it. I need advice in the matter of my family. I am a very temperamental person and loose my cool very easily if someone offends me. I am the older one of my siblings but they don't respect me and they bicker with me all the time. I try to ignore it and be the bigger person, but when it comes to them insulting me I won't sit and listen to it. Instead of turning the other cheek I respond with two fists ready to fight. I know it's wrong and recently I have tried to remain calm during these situations; sometimes successful, most of the times not. It disappoints me deeply that my parents almost never react in any way to the insults and disrespect by siblings towards me, on the contrary, they side with the siblings and turn the whole situation to make me the bad guy. I yell at my parents at these events and on rare occations curse them. I have repented and fallen back into my old habits multiple times. I know God is fair, but I can't help but think that I'm in a very unfair situation: siblings don't respect me and use disgusting words about me, parents don't do anything about it and when lose my temper I'm the one who will be punished by God, all my prayers and fasts are in vain because I shout at them (parents). What should I do from a religious perspective? Am I the wrong one? I have thought about cutting ties with the whole family once I get financially independent and move out, but cutting ties is (apparently) also haram. I feel that I'm in a loop where I will do haram regardless of my decisions. Thanks for reading.
  12. Salaam and Ramadan Kareem, Please read my detailed analysis in the link below, on the topic of Abu Bakr in the cave, as addressed by the Quran in 9:40. https://myunderstandingofislam.blogspot.com/2021/04/quran-940-abu-bakr-in-cave.html Inshallah this will be a lively and fruitful discussion. Best wishes, Ahmed.
  13. Salaam brothers and sisters, I have been looking for a Quran Tafsir & Translation by Shia scholars/sheikhs but so far haven't been successful... Recently I've been working on the habit of reading more Quran. If anybody knows a good source for a good Tafsir as well as Translation written by a Shia scholar/sheikh, kindly link me up. And please refrain from commenting on how Shia/Sunni translations are the same because they are not i.e. I'm hoping to find material with the correct Shia perspective (or as close as possible) on Quranic verses in light of Ahlulbayt's teachings. Thank you very much in advance.
  14. Bill Gates Wants to 'Cover the Sun' to Help Counter Global Warming According to a Forbes post, the billionaire is funding a project that would help dim sunlight. "You can't cover the sun with a finger", but maybe with science and technology yes. According to Forbes , Bill Gates is funding a project that would dim sunlight in order to "cool" the Earth. The research called " Stratospheric Controlled Disturbance Experiment " (SCoPEx for its acronym in English) is carried out by scientists from Harvard University and has the purpose of achieving that the sunlight is reflected outside the atmosphere of our planet. You may be interested: Bill Gates predicts what 2021 will be like, alerts us to our immediate future This solution would be achieved by spraying tons of non-toxic calcium carbonate (CaCO3) into the atmosphere. "SCoPEx is a scientific experiment to advance the understanding of stratospheric aerosols that could be relevant for solar geoengineering," the project page reads. The project will begin to carry out tests that so far consist of releasing a balloon with scientific equipment, which will not spray CaCO3 but will function as a test of maneuver and to explore communications and operating systems. “We plan to use a high-altitude balloon to lift an instrument package approximately 20 km into the atmosphere. Once in place, a very small amount of material (100g 2 kg) will be released to create a disturbed air mass approximately one kilometer long and one hundred meters in diameter. Then we will use the same balloon to measure the resulting changes in the disturbed air mass, including changes in aerosol density, atmospheric chemistry and light scattering, ”they explain. What could go wrong? According to Forbes , scientific opponents of this project believe that solar geoengineering could bring unavoidable risks and extreme changes in weather patterns that would be no different than current warming trends. They also explain that environmentalists fear that a "dramatic" change in mitigation strategy will become a "green light" for greenhouse gases to continue being emitted without any variation in current consumption patterns. ------------------
  15. On Thursday 11th of March 2021, Waseem Rizvi the ex-chairman of the Shia Waqf Board filed a petition in the Supreme Court of India to remove 26 verses (Ayat) from the Holy Quran. After listening to this news which spread like fire all over India, the Muslims shows their anger against him by protesting and requested the government to arrest him immediately. In Srinagar, BJP the ruling party of India also condemns ex-chairman of the Shia Waqf board Waseem Rizvi for hurting the religious sentiments and joined the protest with Muslim Religious organizations in the valley. The BJP leader of the valley Manzoor Bhat said that we have filed a complaint against the accused before the police and no one is allowed to speak up against any community or to change their Holy Book. Waseem Rizvi is the controversial man of all time, in 2019 he had written a letter to the Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi. In which he said to shut down the primary Madarsas (Islamic School) to check the ISIS influence on Muslim children. He also wrote that if Madarsas are not shut down then half of the population of India will become supporters of the ISIS Ideology in just 15 years. In 2018, Waseem Rizvi filed a petition in court to ban the hoisting of Green flags in which crescent and star emblem is made, quoting that such flags are un-Islamic and should be ban. He also said that such flags are very similar to the Pakistan Muslim League (PML) and the action must be taken against the people and organizations hoisting it as it belonged to an “enemy country”.

  16. guys, i am sort of back, i know it took soo long from me to get back onto shiachat. but I really needed it, and soo i decided to get offline on whole sociol media including whatsapp etc.. i was only available for some people. i hope you all dont get mad for my really late reply !! i had so many topics into my head but infortunetally i worked smart (not) and forgot to write them into my notes and later on after my burn out i forgot lots of them... i think i will still not be fully available on shiachat but i am trying to bring the topics as promised back to live that is about imam mahdi,pre-advent,qiyamat e sughra/kubra etc.. for now i got this topic into my head, and i think its an important one to discuss it!!! ----------- As we all have start to see it, lots of young people are trying to become religious scholars,to replace the older merjaa's when they will be gone. There are same people who say trough narations that imam mahdi will fight even the shias when he will come. Some say its sahih and some neglect that idea. The ones who belief lots fake sholars will show up before the advent claim that they will get into huge disagreemant until they will say towards the imam the following :"go back to where you came from we dont need youre imamate" this is quit shocking to read. will imam al mahdi will get a hard time also becuase of the soo called shias(scholars) or are these narations corrupted? btw same story goes with sayeds, that lots of them will turn against imam mahdi (aj) what does ahlalbayt say about the return of imam mahdi aj?? there are narrations when in fact say that imam Mahdi aj will have a really hard time before he will establish his government. its even mentioned he will have it twice as hard as how prophet Muhammed (sawa) himself had.. becuase the difference between the two is that our imam will already have muslims against him..while prophet muhammed (sawa) brought islam to the world and not even 1 muslim could get into disagreement with him. ---------- guys, feel free to get back into the topics about imam Mahdi (aj) ,lets make the comment section blow up. may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) make us amongst his soldiers
  17. So I want to start reading the Qur'an and Hadith's are there translations (English) written by Shi'a scholars that someone could recommend? And are there books about the Imams also written by a Shi'a in English? I really don't want website links I would rather have a physical book I can take with me places. Books on Shi'a theology would be nice too.
  18. Salam all dear brothers and sisters, Please find the latest version of QuranCode software at http://qurancode.com or download directly from http://alphazero.org النفسوالروح.pdf
  19. Assalmulaikum , i am suuni muslim, and i have notice most of my shia friends and family who think sunni muslim have the same aqaid as the deobandi or ahladees does. but when i give invitation in my house on the milad un nabi, and when we all read manqabat of maula ali , they really treat change and shower love to me.
  20. I haven't seen a popular post like this in a while, so let's make this one popular. ادْعُوكَ يَا سَيِّدِي بِلِسَانٍ قَدْ اخْرَسَهُ ذَنْبُهُ "I pray to you, O' My Master, with a tongue that has been Paralyzed by its Sins." -Imam Zayn al Abideen, Dua Abu Hamza al Thumali You can post a Verse from the Quran, a Dua line, Anything religious.
  21. One of the easiest ways to memorize Qur'an is to recite the first verse 10-20 times. Do not stop until you can read it with your eyes closed and read it with the correct tajweed. Once you've mastered the first verse, recite the first verse one time and the second first 10-20 times or until you understand it with the proper pronunciation. If reading it with translation helps, do that so you can remember. Once you've done this with the first and second verses, repeat them both until the third and repeat. If you make a mistake, recite all of the verses you know without making a mistake 10-20 times (recite them once each and then repeat). Then recite all of them once until the verse you made the mistake on and repeat what was instructed above. I hope this helps, inshallah.
  22. I was just doing research, and discovered the Zahiri Sunni say masturbation is halal. The shia use the verse that says "And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts). Except from their wives or that their right hands possess, – for them, they are free from blame. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors." But don’t we own ourselves? Are ourselves included in what our “right hands possess”? Doesn’t guarding our chastity EXCLUDE wives, concubines, and ourselves? I will appreciate every answer
  23. Salam Aleikum wa rahmatullah my dear brothers and sisters. Inshallah you are all doing well. This is a short clip on the necissity to recite the holy Qur'an daily, to learn lessons from it and the Thawab for it. The video itself is in arabic. But subtitles in english are availible.
