  1. First some Introductory points: The Bab was a man who claimed he is the gate to Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s), then claimed he is the Mahdi Himself, then he is a new Prophet and then he claimed he is God. This happened about 150 years ago in Persia. He appointed a man called Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal as his successor and executor of his will. Mirza Yahya was the leader of the Babis until his half-brother Baha'u'llah (creator of the Baha'i cult) succeeded in sending him to the sidelines. Mirza Yahaya is greatly hated by Baha’is and regarded as one their greatest enemies. To put it in a nutshell, this is how he is viewed by Baha'is: “Mírzá Yaḥyá is scarcely spoken of, but when he is mentioned he is called Satan.” (E.G. Browne, Materials for the Study of the Babi Religion, p. 117)​What most Baha’is don’t know or will not tell you is that according to the Bab, Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal, was God. This is how the Bab’s will to Subh-i Azal starts: “Name of Azal, testify that there is no God but I, the dearest beloved. Then testify that there is no God but you, the victorious and permanent.”​First the Bab states very explicitly that he is God (not a messenger from God or a manifestation of God, but God himself), then he tells Subh-i Azal that he too is God and should testify to this (seriously what the hell)! These statements being illogical and meaningless aside, according to the Bab Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal is God and according to Baha’ullah he is the Satan and devil! Why should anyone takes the claims of Baha'u'llah seriously when he claims he is the one that the Bab had prophesied about when he doesn't have faith in the Bab's God and calls him Satan?And why should we take the Bab's claims seriously who claims he is God then Passes his Godhood to Mirza Yahya who is then deprived of his Godhood by Baha'u'llah and changed into satan?!Why do these people claim they are monotheists while the core of their beliefs is polytheism and belief in multiple human Gods (Baha'u'llah also claims he is God)?Where is the logic in any of these claims? Sources, scans and some other quotes here: http://www.bahaibahai.com/eng/index.php/articles?id=91
  2. Salaam, This is somewhat of a cryptic post but do you believe our Imams to be more powerful or Shaytan (Iblees) to be more powerful? Reason for either choice?
  3. Salaam Alaykum, ''God did curse him, but he said: “I will take of Thy servants a portion marked off; I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires'' Some of the tafaseer are very straightforward and clear in this, however, this verse raises an issue in my mind that I can't get rid off, namely, Satan's power and creative abilities. Not only does he have power over ''a portion of His servants'' but he also will ''create within them false desires''. How does he create? Who gave him the power to create? He can create IN us? Does he create out of nothing or is there already something in us he builds upon? How do we recognize the false from the true desires? Surely there is a reason why he says false desires. Or are all desires false by default?
  4. I hope you're all well. Keeping it simple, my question is, why is satan promised eternal damnation in hell? Was it because he refused to bow to adam, or was it because of the acts that followed? Perhaps it was about more than just refusing to bow? I can't accept the notion that it was a simple rejection to bow that led to his punishment. God is all Seeing, All knowing, Most Merciful. He is aware of satan's pride, and how it blurrs his judgement. The Quran says, "Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity". There is the element of free will and the concept of testing, but I can't believe Satan would be stupid enough to disobey a direct command from God with first hand proof of His existence. Knowing fully that there is no escape from God, even if I believed it were unjust (due to my ignorance), I'd follow through. And I've only been living for 21 years. Satan has been living long before then. What I mean to say, he is most definitely wiser than any of us. So is there more to the story? I do realise that the bow wasn't only meant for Adam, but the light of the ahl-albayt and muhmmad (pbuh) that resided in him. I ask this because I hoped to better understand the extent of God's mercy. Thank you for reading
  5. In Islamic tradition it is the site where Adam fell to earth and where his footprint can be found https://youtu.be/AA8kzXDW4xk Adam's Peak or Seri Pada in Sirilanka which in Buddhist tradition is held to be the footprint of the Buddha, in Hindu tradition that of Shiva and in Islamic and Christiantradition that of Adam, The footstep is covered by a handsome roof, and is guarded by the priests of a rich monastery half-way up the mountain, who maintain a shrine on the summit of the peak." And as mentioned in the Islamic history, Adam A.S fell on Serendib Mount in Sirilanka , and Eve (Hawa A.S) fell on Al-Marwa in Mecca, while the Satan was dropped in the lowest point on earth, a salty valley in Basra/ Iraq
  6. Salam dear friends I am sure that everyone is witnessing some great changes and challenges of the modern world. The times are strange to say the least. Are these the end times? The possibilities exist. After study of many books and listening to many lectures, I have reached the conclusion that there is one guy who is ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT for all of us to listen to. His speeches are vital regarding our responsibility. I have a lot to share but all my work is summarized by these speeches. I INSIST again n again n again all my friends that they MUST listen to this: http://www.hussainiat.com/album/1921/01-safar-1435-hj-maulana-ali-murtaza-zaidi-201/16537.aspx I hope that it enlightens us. May everything that we possess be served to Allah, The Merciful. Waslam
  7. Salam, Humble Bundle has chosen to put Rushdie's "Satanic Verses" in their latest collection of audio books that they sell for a cheap price. A comment has been made on their Facebook-page and it would be great if you could support and answer the comment, especially considering that it is done at the same time as it is the birthday of our beloved Prophet!! https://www.facebook.com/humblebundle/posts/657211527655488 Please spread this so we all who love our Prophet(S) can make a stance!
  8. "...and whoever takes the Satan for a guardian rather than Allah he indeed shall suffer a manifest loss.." (Surah Nisa: Verse 119 ) Interpretation(Tafsir): When one calls the Satan, that is, obeys his commands, Allah counts it as taking the Satan for a guardian, as He says: "And whoever takes the Satan for a guardian rather than Allah he indeed shall suffer a manifest loss." It should be noted that Allah has not said: Whosoever the Satan is his guardian; because the previous verses have clearly shown that the guardian is Allah alone and no one else has any guardianship on anything even if someone takes him as his guardian. (Al-Mizan) If we observe our society in this era of the ghaibah of our Imam(a.s) we can simply understand that majority of Muslims have accepted Satan as their guardian, and our hearts have turned black. It will be misleading to say that the our society is very good and only some men and women have been misled, the ground realities are totally different. When a person with strong belief goes out of his house, it becomes extremely difficult for him to save his eemaan from immodestly dressed women, along with ones wearing seductive hijaabs, luring music and many other fatal temptations. And this is the reason why the Masoom(as) said that a time will come when Saving Eemaan will be more difficult than holding fire in hand.
  9. Just read this disturbing news. Wahabis threatening Shias with murder and rapes at 2013 Hajj. What level has this Saudi "fonicated" money brought the Wahabis/Sunnis down to? La'an on these enemies of Allah and humanity. http://abna.ir/data.asp?lang=3&id=473388
  10. (salam) I just found a hadith about Satan changing his way where Umar is. Is there anybody who can shed some light on the following hadith? Just want to know how much this hadith is authenticated and what does it really mean? Narrated Sa'd: 'Umar bin Al-Khattab asked permission of Allah's Apostle to see him while some Quraishi women were sitting with him and they were asking him to give them more financial support while raising their voices over the voice of the Prophet. When 'Umar asked permission to enter, all of them hurried to screen themselves the Prophet admitted 'Umar and he entered, while the Prophet was smiling. 'Umar said, "May Allah always keep you smiling, O Allah's Apostle! Let my father and mother be sacrificed for you !" The Prophet said, "I am astonished at these women who were with me. As soon as they heard your voice, they hastened to screen themselves." 'Umar said, "You have more right, that they should be afraid of you, O Allah's Apostle!" And then he ('Umar) turned towards them and said, "O enemies of your souls! You are afraid of me and not of Allah's Apostle?" The women replied, "Yes, for you are sterner and harsher than Allah's Apostle." Allah's Apostle said, "O Ibn Al-Khattab! By Him in Whose Hands my life is, whenever Satan sees you taking a way, he follows a way other than yours!" Volume 8, Book 73, Number 108: http://www.islamicit...ri/073.sbt.html (wasalam)
  11. Some sunni from school sent me a video today to prove that Shia's are kufar. He said that we must love Ibes (Satan) because he loves imam Ali In the video a shia shiek said that Ibes (Satan) said that "The best thing iv'e saved for you in the day of Judgement is my love for Amirul Mu'minin Ali" Is this true? explain please? P.S. here's the video, but be warned it's pretty much a video for anti Shia's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0SZuHi17xA
  12. In The Name of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. Assalamualaykum wa RAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATOH. I hope you all are, INSHALLAH (God Willing), well and in the best of health and Faith (Imaan). I remember once hearing a lecture whereby the speaker talking about the Jinns and the story of Iblis being ousted from Paradise. Now, the speaker had said before Adam (as) had been created, Jinns were already existing and that Allah (SWT) had sent a severe punishment on the Jinns for their disobedience but Iblis was the best of the Jinns who used to worship him a lot so Allah (SWT) has raised up to the seventh Heaven to live alongside Jibrail (as) when the Jinns were punished due to his high levels of worship. Then, the angels of the first heaven (sky) had come to know from Allah (SWT) that he was going to do something - I don't remember what exactly it was but it something that the angels got worried about. According to what he had said, the angels also have classes and levels and, so, the angels of the first heaven are inferior to those of the second heaven who, in turn, are inferior to those of the third heaven and so on while the angels of the seventh Heaven are the most superior. So, the lecturer had said these first heaven angels started to panic that this bad thing - as I have said, I don't remember what exactly it was - which Allah (SWT) had mentioned may happen to them so they so went to the angels of the second heaven in order to ask them to intercede for them but these second heaven angels, themselves got worried about what if it was for them and they, in turn, went to angels of the third heaven and so until they all reached the four biggest angels until, at last, they all reached Jibrail (as) who also got worried and suggested they all go to Iblis and ask him to pray to Allah (SWT) because he was so special to Allah (SWT) that He had raised to live with Jibrail (as). So, they all went to Iblis and asked him to pray on their behalf to which he agreed and then, Allah (SWT) punished Iblis which was his ouster because of his disobedience. Basically, the moral that this lecturer was trying to impart was that when you want to pray for material things like cars, money and their like, you should first pray for your friends, family neighbours etc...like the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) used to do and then lastly for yourself but when it comes to praying for forgiveness and immunity from sin, then you must start with yourself and then go to the others. This is the mistake Iblis made whereby he prayed for all the angels but forgot himself so he was the one who suffered! Regardless of the moral from this story, what I would like the respected members of this forum to do is, if they can, provide me references for this story IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER THE SOURCE IS SHIA OR SUNNI. :D By the way, the lecturer was Maulana Sadiq Hasan (some of the oldies may know him as Sadiq Bapu) who is a very, very famous Urdu speaker so I would, most probably, trust his words and be assured that if he says something, then he must have some sources for it. So, I am looking forward to get the source for this hadith. I am in urgent need of it so I would be very grateful if someone could provide me with a reference to this story! :D May Allah (SWT) bless us all, our families and loved ones, may He guide us all with His Perfect Guidance and may He, The Forgiver of Sins and The Oft-Forgiving, forgive all our sins for, indeed, there is neither any refuge nor any respite for the sinners except in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì.
  13. I know it sounds like an odd question, but, as far as I am aware Allah (swt) locks Satan in Hell for the month of Ramdan. In that case surely he's freed during Eid, meaning he can get back to misguiding people. In that case wouldn't that make Eid a day of celebration for Satan, as he is no longer bound by Allah? :P
  14. I was wondering, what exactly is the shaytan. I believe he is a jinn but surely he must be more than just that. I remember reading somewhere that when a man is alone with a woman the shaytan is the third "person" there. Yet, I'm sure there are bound to be cases where two couples (that's two men and two woman) are together, separately (such as in different countries). So how is the shaytan with both couples at the same time. He's just a jinn after all right?
  15. Dear Reader! plz let me know if there is any mistake in my topic>> i really need your help before i publish it in the library of the shrine of Imam Hussain AS. thanx 8 Important questions about Satan May Allah curse him By: Sheikh Ali Alfatlawi First question: What are the power limits of Satan on human? The answer: Satan has no power more than decking, seducing, evil whispering, and inciting; means he doesn’t force human to sin, nor prevent him to choose his action. This has been stated by Quran verses and the following traditions: 1. A verse referring to inciting; to incite people against each others as stated in His the Almighty saying: (And definitely in case an incitement from Ash-Shaytan (the all-vicious (one), i.e., the Devil) ever incites you, then seek refuge in Allah; surely He is Ever-Hearing, Ever-Knowing..) (Quran, 7:200) 2. A verse referring to show the evil ugly deeds lovable to them, then human imagine it as a benefit and he get trapped by it as stated in His the Almighty saying: (And [remember] when Satan made their deeds pleasing to them and said, "No one can overcome you today from among the people, and indeed, I am your protector " Then as soon as the two communities sighted each other, he retreated on his heels and said, "Surely I am quit of you; surely I see what you do not see; surely I fear Allah; and Allah is strict in punishment.") (8:48) 3. A verse referring to evil whispering and its impacts as stated in His the Almighty saying: (Who whispers into the hearts of men) (Quran, 114:5) 4. A verse referring to seducing as stated in His the Almighty saying: (the Satan has made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.) Second question: what are the methods used by Satan to pull the leg of human to do sins and disbelief? The answer: The methods are many! The commander of the faithful AS 3 attractions which are taking place of the origin of the sin which human fall into and do disobedience to Almighty Allah "There are three types of charms: the love of women, which Satan uses as his sword; drinking wine, which Satan uses as his snare; and love of the dinar and the dirham [symbols of wealth], which Satan uses as his arrow.’ (Kanz Alomal: 30883/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol5, Page 191, No. 9376) Third question: What is the answer to he who put the blame on Satan when he sins? The answer: to blame Satan is an escape from responsibility, and lack of recognition of dereliction for what mentioned earlier because Satan do nothing but decking and whispering without compulsion to do the action as Satan distancing himself from the bad deeds of human and put the blame on him as stated in the Almighty saying: (And the Satan shall say after the affair is decided: Surely Allah promised you the promise of truth, and I gave you promises, then failed to keep them to you, and I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you obeyed me, therefore do not blame me but blame yourselves: I cannot be your aider (now) nor can you be my aiders; surely I disbelieved in your associating me with Allah before; surely it is the unjust that shall have the painful punishment.) (Quran, 14:22) The commander of the faithful answered those who curse Satan who pulls their legs to sins by saying: "don’t curse Satan on public while you are his friend on secret" (Sharh Nahj Alblagha by Ibn Alhadid: Vol 20, Page: 329, No. 767) Fourth question: What is the answer to he who says that his Satan won over him and trapped him in sins? The answer: this is the justification indicates an escape from taking responsibilities and pushing the blames away from once-self as Satan has no authorities on the strong faithful for two reasons: A. the weakness of the satanic strategies as stated in the Mighty saying (Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan; surely the strategy of the Satan is weak.) (Quran, 4: 76) B. the strong faithful is the one who fight Satan and wins but in the other hand he who show weakness in front of Satan and surrender to him, is not counted with the strong faithful and (the strong faithful is better than the weak faithful) thus Imam Al-Kathem AS advising us in his well to Hisham " You should begin with the nearest to you, the most inimical, the most harmful, the most aggressive, and the most hidden despite his closeness to you. It is Iblis who is instigating your enemies against you and the source of the hearts' ill inspirations. You should regard him as the most antagonistic enemy and you should be more tolerant in striving him than he is as he is trying to lead you to perdition. He is surely less supported than you are and less harmful despite his great evil, provided that you cling to Allah so as to be guided to a straight path. (Tuhaf-Aloqol: Page 399-400/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol 5, Page 1925: No. 9387, Page 1920: No. 9370.) Fifth question: Why Allah Allowed Satan to spoil his servants? The answer: We know that life is an examination and test world and to achieve reward and punishment there must be attraction to make the faithful attracted towards them, in order to make him deserve one of the two; the reward or the punishment, and this is the divine justice accurately, as stated in the Mighty saying (And in no way did he have any all-binding authority over them, except that We would know him who believed in the Hereafter from him who was in doubt thereof. And your Lord is Ever-Preserving over everything.) (Quran, 34:21) Sixth Question: What is the best way to get rid of Satan's seduce? The answer: It is clear to every sane one that to resort to the Almighty Allah, to hold hard his laws, seek refuge with him are the best defense against the accursed Satan, as stated in the Mighty saying (And say, "My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of the devils, And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they be present with me.") (Quran, 23:97, 98) Also His The Almighty saying (So when you recite the Quran, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan) (Quran, 16:98) His The Almighty saying (But when she delivered her, she said, "My Lord, I have delivered a female." And Allah was most knowing of what she delivered, "And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allah].) (Quran, 3: 36) His The Almighty saying (And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.) (Quran, 7:200) This was confirmed by the commander of the faithful when he said: I praise Allah and seek His help from (what led to the) punishment of Satan and his deceitful acts, and (I seek His) protection from Satan's traps and waylaying. (Nahj Albalagha, Sermon 151) Seventh Question: Who could survive from Iblis (Satan)? The answer: No one saved except the servants whose fear The Almighty Allah and worship him as if they could see him, as stated in the Mighty saying (Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.) (Quran, 16:99), and in His the Almighty saying (Indeed, My servants - no authority will you have over them, except those who follow you of the deviators.) (Quran, 15:42) This is the act of worships which the one who want to survive from Iblis, to be characterized with. Imam Al-Sadiq AS explained that when he said "The damned Satan says that there are five types of people which he cannot deceive, but he has full control over others. The first type consists of those who sincerely take refuge in God and rely on Him in all their affairs. The second type consists of those who say the praises of their Lord often in daytime and at night. The third type is those who like for their believing brothers whatever they like for themselves. The fourth type consists of those who do not lose their calmness at times of calamities. The fifth type are those who are content with what God has given them and do not grieve about their share of daily bread." (Alkhisal: Page 285, No. 37/Mizan Alhekma: Vol 5, Page 1928, No. 9401) Imam al-Baqer AS referred to the importance to fear Allah seriously when he said "Beware of Iblis by truthful fear" (Bihar Al Anwar: Vol 78, Page: 164, No.1./ Mizan Alhekma: Vol5, Page: 1925, No. 9402) There is an easy way that a faithful bondman can fallow to be saved from the evil of Iblis which referred to in the Commander of the faithful saying "'Increase in your supplication and you will be secure from Satan's force.’(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol 78, Page: 9, No.64/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol5, Page: 1928, No.9403) Eighth Question: If Iblis doesn’t have authorities over those who believe as stated in the noble verse (Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.) then how could we explain the suffering of some faithful to the harm of Iblis? The answer: The authority of Iblis is confined on the material side of human without the spiritual side, in other word; his faith and religion are protected by the Almighty Glorious Allah, and this was stated by Imam Al Sadiq AS when he said: "By Allah! He is authorized of the faithful over his body and not authorized on his religion. He was authorized on Ayub AS, he distorted his appearance and wasn’t allowed on his religion." (Alkafi: Vol 8, Page: 288, No.433/ Mizan Alhekma: Vol 5, Page: 1929, No.9405)
  16. (bismillah) 1)Why do we seek refuge from Satan in "Allah" while we start a Surah in "Allah's name"? ÇÚæÐ ÈÇááå & ÈÓã Çááå 2)What is this name of Allah that we start in? It was always a perplexing topic to me. "In The Name Of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful" What is that "Name" or is this imperceivable by human nature? Thanks in advance for your answers. (wasalam)
  17. What do you think, what is the root cause of homosexuality in society? Remember societies are different, there are oppressive societies and cultures such as Saudi Arabia, Wahabi, Salafi cultures of over separation of genders and so on. And then there is ultra feminist, man hater cultures of the West. Please do not comment on Gender Identity Crisis (the disease) since I want to limit this topic only to probing the causes of homosexuality (the crime).
