  2. Assalamu A'laykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu, I have been wondering, how did our scholars like Sheikh Al Tusi (ra) know if person x is reliable or not?? And the same thing goes for the Sunni scholars, but I'd rather know how our scholars knew it first. I have been searching and searching, but I haven't found any luck, but that's probably because most of the stuff we have in our text is in Arabic, so its quite hard for a person like me who isn't that great at Arabic to understand what I am reading. Jazakullahu feekum
  3. Bismillah! Allahumma Salli Ala Muhammad Wa Ala Alae Muhammad! Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh Brothers And Sisters, I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Could Recommend Some Good Shia Scholars That Do Lectures And Talks About Shi'ite And Islam ? I Appreciate Any And All Assistance/Recommendations! Thank You For Taking The Time To Read This Post! Jazaak Allaah! Alaikum Salaam!
  4. Dear sisters, as salaam in alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuhu. please could any one of you recommend Shia lady teachers of Quran and deeniyat in lucknow. pls share their website if you know of it. I searched for prof Taj Bano and dr Anjum Zaidi but didn't find their emails or website. Appreciate your help.
  5. Hello/Assalam Alaikum Many people here have told me that I should seek answers or about Islam or advices from well-recognized scholars, but how can I know which scholars are legitimate or how can I find them? Thank you
  6. Salam alaykum, all I am wondering whether any of our scholars have used the word "fisq" to refer to homosexuality. I have tried YouTube but honestly do NOT have the patience for it. (I never have.) In addition, I have clicked Ayatullah Sayyid Abdul Husayn Dastghaib Shirazi's text "Greater Sins" to look around there. Even so, any help in connecting me to a scholarly work in which the author or speaker uses the word "fisq" to describe homosexuality would be welcome - including any references to "Greater Sins." After all, two minds are better than one. Thank you! -Freedom
  7. Salams Would appreciate your help in answering below questions with credible references. 1) Can someone refer me to Iran’s detailed laws regarding veil/hijab, specifically the punishment (official links will be quite helpful, if any)? 2) What is the basis of the punishment for not wearing proper dress code? Is it Islamic? Is it a specific law of Iran based on society’s preference? Or is a decision of the Supreme Leader of Iran? E.t.c 3) If it’s Islamic, can someone kindly share references used by law makers (are there any such Islamic references at all)? For example, were women punished for not covering themselves in the times of the Prophet P.b.u.H? Or did our Imams endorse the punishment for not observing hijab? 4) If it’s based on society’s preference, can someone clarify whether it was devised in consideration of the general consent of the (majority of) public and/or its representatives? 5) There are protestors seeking freedom to wear what they want. There are also protestors who want the government officials to strictly impose moral dress. Are there any official or third party statistics suggesting the majority view? 6) Are the punishments strictly carried out or do most people get away with a warning? Thank you
  8. Salam Alaikom, here this topic is about angels and to gather mainly material about angels for all of us to benefit from islamic sources. Have you ever thought why so little of speech in our communities about angels, are we not maybe, part angelic and part animal like, and maybe from spiritual realm perspective we are like this. Gathering of information is by this priority: From the Holy Quran Ahadith of Ahl al-Bait Peace upon Them What our Maraje say based on aql and naql of course Any speech from a scholar in your community, this includes your virtual community also, try to find one speech lo. Any books in any language is also welcome, on this topic both from Maraje and high scholars and other researches that is Muslims.
  9. Salams It is noteworthy how we have changed the way we receive and learn new information. For example, in the past, knowledge was seen as an object. Teachers were active conveyors of knowledge while the students were passive receivers. I can still remember from school days when we would sit in the school classroom trying to pay attention to the teacher. This style of learning was non-productive, as most of the students remained half asleep, and we would hardly grasp half of what was taught. It has also started to become obsolete in the 21st century now that everyone is seen as an active learner and all of us develop our own understanding of the world. The source of information is not just limited to schools, hawzas, universities, dictionaries and encyclopaedias. Instead most of the information on any given subject is readily available online. Everyone is actively engaging in discussions and people are producing information and sharing their knowledge on a wide variety of topics (This idea is referred to as constructivism and according to it, we learn by observing & experimenting, actively searching for information, engaging in dialogue, and becoming producers of information). In light of these changing circumstances, is it not a fair demand to have scholars and related institutions engage with public for the purpose of producing and sharing information? Should they not be more approachable and should they not engage with public in a manner that both parties learn from one another and implement positive changes for the greater good of Islam and the global Muslim community at large? It is a matter of serious concern that if scholars and hawza institutions confine themselves to private discussions and formal education, they will gradually loose their appeal and authority because when there is a vacuum, alternatives (good or bad) fill it up. I refer to a response from the office of His Eminence Sayyid Al-Hakeem below which serves as a good example of the concern in discussion but is of course in no way being shared to degrade their efforts. While this response makes a valid point of complexities surrounding derivation of laws, it shuns the proposal by saying that if someone is interested they can learn jurisprudence from available platforms and institutions. And in saying that, it shows how present day scholars and their offices are either unaware or less concerned about the way information is being produced and shared online. There is neither an acknowledgement of the concern being shared nor an interest to forward this message to bodies or groups or individuals who could look at bringing about changes well suited to present times. The tone of the reply leaves an impression that there is no area of improvement in the current system and the one questioning the system has to follow status quo. My final thought, in fact an open question to individuals such as @Ibn al-Hussain and others studying or working in hawza institutions or office of Grand Ayatullahs, is if there is any way to get this message across to people who are open minded and can do something about it? Just recently we tried to welcome scholars as guests on our platform which was a failed attempt and which shows the level of priority being given to the voices of laymen. I can understand different limitations but I don't understand why there is lack of commitment in keeping up with the times. Am I missing something? Have I got it all wrong?
  10. Auzobillaahiminash Shaitaanir rajeem. Bismilaahir Rahmaanir Raheem. Assalaamu Alaikum. There are many people whose Duas are easily answered. Just wondering have anyone thought of making, say, Duas to save yourself from Hell and grant Jannatul Ferdaus (best Heaven)? or, making Dua for the benefit of ummah? This is because there is a story about a man Balaam ibn Baoora (also spelled Bu’laam bin Baa’ooraa’) , who used to live at the time of Prophet Musa (Alaihis Salam). He was not just any man, but a scholar. He was not any scholar, but one who knew the Ism e Azam , the greatest name of Allah, using which if a person makes Dua, the Dua is answered. Even after this Bulaam got deviated. I mean, if such a khowledgable man gets deviated, what will happen to common people? I was wondering why didn't he make Dua to get Heaven and protected from Hell, or ask for the well-fare of the Muslim nations, or ask for protection from Shaitan? The lesson is enlightening. Thought I should share. http://www.thelastcaliph.com/balam-ibn-baura/ http://www.slideshare.net/zakir2012/the-world-of-jinn-devils -> (Pg 42 or 48, depending upon how reader counts the pages. A plain-text format of the file's words is below that webpage) Remember me in your Duas too. JazakAllah Khair.
  11. Dear friends, Just a question about some concepts I've come across in my modest, and no doubt inadequate, study of islamic doctrine and philosophy. I hope there are some people he that can enlighten me with the backgrounds I need. There is the concept of "pre-existence". The notion which I almost automatically associate with a neo-platonist philosophical outlook; the concept of immaterial perfect ideas that exist before the creation of material being and that somehow manifest themselves in material creation because they mediate all perfect forms that manifest themselves in created material beings. These categories obviously had a great influence on the development on Christian theology, to the extend that some doctrines have been developed which Muslims now deem to be going too far and indeed to be a lapse in idolatry. But let's leave that aside for the moment. But the core as I perceive it is; the idea of pre-existence has become quite a guiding principle in some regards. In the Gospel of John this can be seen with the concept of the Word (Logos) that became flesh; he was before all times and came into the world to be rejected by the Jews who were not able to recognize him. The Church Fathers clearly saw the Logos as the model of creation itself; it was through the Logos that God created men, the rejection of the Logos was as such a rejection of the essential core of what it means to be human, to be created in the image God and called to worship Him in love and obedience. As it were: the Logos represents an immaterial perfect idea of what it essence of human ontology. All human existence is as it were mediated through the pre-existent Word. The crux is of course whether you define the Logos as created or uncreated; this is where the whole discussion about the Trinity starts but again I hope we can leave that aside for this moment. My question is how do Muslim scholars look at this concept of the pre-existence? Are there any sayings by the Imams that could shed light on this? I think I've came across some notion of the Qur'an as having a certain pre-existent statute and in some (analogical/philosophical?) form even Imam Ali? How can I understand this better? And how to see the concept of 'Aql? Like the Greek concepts of Logos and Sophia? Or is altogether different? How can enlighten me in this? I am keen to learn more. God bless, Leto

  13. ASALAAM ALAIKUM EVERYONE. RECENTLY, I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A SCHOOL OF THOUGHT TO FOLLOW. I HAVE BEEN RAISED SUNNI BUT I NOW WANT TO STUDY THE SHIA APPROACH TO AL-ISLAM. MY REASONS BEING BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENCES, SOME SLIGHT, SOME MAJOR IN THE WAY DIFFERENT GROUPS APPROACH THIS RELIGION SO I HAVE DECIDED THAT I WANT TO DO RESEARCH (WITH THE HELP OF Allah) AND FOLLOW THE ONE THAT IS CLOSEST TO THE QURAN AND THE CHARACTER OF RASULULLAH (pbuh). THEREFORE I WAS WONDERING IF YOU ALL COULD POINT ME TO SOME GOOD AND WELL KNOWN SCHOLARS WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOME OF YOUR DIFFERING BELIEFS AND BACK UP THEIR VALIDITY USING STRONG SOURCES. THIS ONE GUY TOLD ME TO LOOK UP STUFF FROM A SHEIKH NAMED YASSIR HABIB AND THE GUY SEEMED LIKE A HATE MONGER- SO PLEASE DO NOT POINT ME TOWARDS ANYONE WHO CURSES AND DISRESPECTS SUNNI AND SAHABAH. ALTHOUGH LIKE ALL SUNNI'S, I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR THE AHLUL BAYT (EVEN THOUGH I DO ADMIT THAT OUR SCHOLARS OFTEN NEGLECT TO TEACH US THEIR KNOWLEDGE, WITH AN EXCEPTION TO FATIMAH(RA) AND ALI(RA) OF COURSE, AND MENTION HOW MANY OF THEM WERE KILLED AND MISTREATED OVER TTHE YEARS), I WANT TO SEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE CLAIMS THAT THE PROPHET APPOINTED THEM TO BE LEADERS OF THE UMMAH. SO PLEASE HELP ME IN MY QUEST FOR A BALANCED UNDERSTANDING GUYS! JAZAKALLAH KHAIR!
  14. Yusuf Qaradawi, L, and Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh has called on all the leaders and scholars of the Muslim world to take strong steps to stop the Hezbollah and its supporters fighting against the people in Syria. “It has been known beyond doubt that it (Hezbollah) is a party of the enemy agent that does not respect the ties of kinship or covenant with the believers,” Al-Asheikh said while commenting on a recent statement by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi in which he acknowledged his error in taking an anti-Saudi stance on Hezbollah. Al-Asheikh said in his statement yesterday that Saudi Arabia did not have any ulterior motive in supporting any effort to solve problems of the Muslims in different parts of world. “(The Kingdom) is not seeking any narrow political gain (while helping the suffering Muslims) but it is motivated by the pure Islamic ideal of spreading justice and bringing an end to injustice and oppression.” He thanked Qaradawi for commending the stance taken by the Saudi scholars in the past on various issues. He also affirmed Qaradawi’s condemnation of Hezbollah’s collaboration with the Syrian regime in the hostilities against the Syrian people and stressed the need for all Muslim scholars and leaders to take a unified stand in solving the issue. Saudi scholars and intellectuals have backed the mufti’s statement. “It is very important as it exposes the Lebanese group as anti-Islamic and anti-Muslim,” said Fuad Kawther, an engineer engaged in dawa activities. He said Shiites and Shiite groups have been behind many tragedies across the Islamic world including Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. Kawther called for a three-pronged strategy to confront Hezbollah. “We have to create awareness against this group; boycott their products and mobilize Source: http://www.arabnews.com/news/454177
