  1. Will Shias view Taliban differently this time after repots of taliban attending majils, and i saw a video of that itapperas to be sunnis participating in matam, is this staged or a hoax, or a prapaganda tool? What do Shias think?
  2. Civil War were to break out in the USA,which side will Shias back?Would it be the African Americans and liberal Socialist Democrats? Conservatve American Muslims and Christians with religious Values, leftist, socialist, or no one.
  3. Ive been told by people that shias dont really say ya hussain when they do matam. A lady told me her husbandwas in us military in iraq and shias never said ya hussain, also a person asked some one on the internet do shias really do ya hussain and they said they dont, i tld them yes and they said how do i know i live in america! IS this true, or did i mis understand?
  4. Im asking this because Iran Supports the African American community. The NOI has some relation to Iran nd it supports thre cause. The NOI also supports the hip hop music industry. So does that mean Iran supports the rap industry because NOI and African Americans support it.Even though music is haram? Do Shias support them?
  5. Does Chicago have a large shia comminity.Is it diverse?
  6. Is music addiction a problem among shia muslims especially youth?

  11. Salam Aleykom, I heared from Sunni brothers that Kuffi Shias killed Imam Husain (as) not sunnies. What do you think about this Claim ? Of course I can answer too but I want to hear from you first...
  12. salaam I was wondering if shia split started when Imam Ali(عليه السلام) moved the khalifate to iraq from hijaz. What developments happened, is that why shias home turf is Iraq rather then mstly in the west penensila.
  13. as salaam alakim!!! is it true in a narration that even some misguided munafiq shias will wage war against Imam Mahdi(عليه السلام)? I heard a hadith mention Baghdad and Syria? Which hadith is this?
  14. How does a Shia respond to this? I thought it was just Sunni? Brethren of Sincerity The Sabians were an important influence on the fifty-two treatises of the Ikhwan al Safa wa Khullan al Wafa, or “The Brethren of Sincerity and Loyal Friends,” a brotherhood that flourished in the city of Basra in Iraq, which was an important source of inspiration for much of Sufi tradition, as well as Jewish scholars of Kabbalah.[14] It is also generally agreed that the Epistles of the Ikhwan al Safa wa Khullan al Wafa were composed by leading proponents of the Ismailis, a sect of the Shia.[15] According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, the Shia sect was founded by a Yemeni Jew named Abdallah ibn Saba who embraced Islam. When Mohammed’s son-in-law Ali became Caliph, Abdallah ascribed divine honors to him whereupon Ali banished him. After Ali’s assassination, Abdallah is said to have taught that Ali was not dead but alive, that a part of the Deity was hidden in him and that after a certain time he would return to fill the Earth with justice. Until then, the divine character of Ali was to remain hidden in the Imams, who temporarily filled his place. As the Jewish Encyclopedia notes, “It is easy to see that the whole idea rests on that of the Messiah in combination with the legend of Elijah the Prophet.”[16] This office of Imam was thought among the Shia to have been passed on directly from Ali to the sixth Imam, Jafar as-Sadiq, and then on through to the twelfth Imam, who disappeared in 873 AD. The Shia majority, following twelve Imams, were known as Twelvers. Some of Jafar’s followers, however, remained loyal to his son Ismail, and were known as Ismailis, or Seveners.
  15. Ok so I don't understand why there are so many ridiculous stereotypes against Shias. Some of these ridiculous stereotypes and allegations are like Shias putting blood in their food and spitting in water. And for some reason Many Deobandis and Wahabis in my area say that Shias don't do salah and that they eat pork. (Nauzbillah). Where the hell do these allegations come from in the first place? Another allegation which is obviously false is that Shia Muslims exploit Mutah for intercourse only. When will these lies ever end?
  16. @Zainab Razvi Assalamualaikum, Would like to know if there are any shias from Paris,France
  17. Salam! Como estas? Hey guys! I just wanted to begin a thread about Soccer. I wanted to form a group of intellectual Shia followers of Football (Soccer) and discuss transfer news, events, and everything else with them. I'm a teenage passionate Soccer fan. Are there any regular Soccer lovers out there who want to have a group of us in which we unite and discuss and also share knowledge regarding Islam. There will be Banter, Trolling, and discussion about Football (Soccer) of all times and analysis of matches. Please reply here so we can think and discuss more about this. Ps. I'm an Atletico Madrid fan! Soy un Rojiblanco. ;)
  18. Syed Mumtaz Hussain Rizvi who is an engineer by profession and a PhD student has been missing after he left home a week ago on 23rd Jan2018. All security agencies have failed to tell the family about his whereabouts. Mumtaz Rizvi remained a close aide of Dr. Mohammad Ali Naqvi founder of Imamia Students Organisation. This is yet another case of a notable Pakistasni shia being taken into illegal and undeclared custody. Around 30 Shia mourners were picked up earlier this year by law enforcers in plainclothes a few days after they returned from Karbala, Iraq. In 2016 alone more than 700 people went missing in Pakistan, most of them Shias.

  20. As we all know the internet is witnessing a second massive wave of anti islams and anti muslims. Along with them are some nationalist atheist iranians that have been getting alot of attention. They live in the west that are claiming that their country had been attacked by barbarian arabs and that iran has gone backwards ever since. I just wanted to know what normal muslim iranians thought of the arab conquest by Omar (RA)

  23. Assalam o Alaikum wa Rehmatullah wa Barakatuhu, Here are the few general guidelines for correctly understanding and interpreting the teachings of Quran. These will never let you fall into the trap of any false belief or custom of any ignorant sunni and shia group, if you apply these rules and guidelines honestly. In Sha Allah. 1. Quran is the collection of Divine Speeches of Allah, which were revealed on different occasions, sometimes a single ayah was revealed, sometimes a group of two or more ayahs. 2. Quran is the primary source, hadith is the secondary source. Quran establishes the foundations of all beliefs and customs while hadith explain them. 3. Surahs in Quran are divided in groups based on their main subject and relation between their ayahs. There are total 7 such groups. Each group has one or more makki and madani surahs. For example in first group there are 1 makki (fatiha) and 4 madani surahs (from baqrah to maida). Same way count on the surahs as follows. Group Makki surahs Madani surahs Main subject 1 1 4 Shariah 2 2 2 Risalah 3 14 1 Risalah 4 8 1 Tauheed 5 13 3 Tauheed 6 7 10 Akhirah 7 46 2 Akhirah 4. Within groups surahs of Quran are divided in pairs of two or three. Surahs in pair share the main subject, style and format of divine orders. One surah of pair explains half of subject and other surah of pair complete it. Like surah baqrah and surah al imran is a pair, surah nahl, surah isra and surah kahf is a pair, surah saf and surah juma is a pair, surah muzamil and surah mudasir is a pair, surah falaq and surah naas is a pair. Every surah is in pair with others. 5. There are two types of ayahs in Quran in general. As Allah said in Aal Imran 7. He is the One Who has revealed to you the Book. Some of its verses are decisive - they are the foundation of the Book - while others are allegorical. Those whose hearts are infected with disbelief follow the allegorical part to mislead others and to give it their own interpretation, seeking for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah. Those who are well grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; it is all from our Rabb." None will take heed except the people of understanding. 6. Important concepts and words in Quran are repeated at least twice. So if at one place someone understood wrong then the other place will explain and clarify him. So try to find every concept in at least two different places in Quran (there can be more than two) for better understanding. 7. Whenever you single out any ayah of Quran and try to interpret it’s meaning, then first read it completely, and also 2 to 4 ayahs before and after the main ayah under study. This will help you to know the context of the subject and all other ayahs related to the subject. 8. First try to find the tafseer of any ayah from the Quran itself, due to the fact that concepts are repeated in Quran, don’t quickly jump to tafseer books. There are 6000+ ayahs in Quran, try to find from them first. 9. If you find two different beliefs or ahadith on any subject, first compare them with Quran. Anything that goes against the teachings of Quran must be rejected, as I said foundation of all beliefs and customs are in Quran, you just have to find them. 10. Many scholars say Quran is not easy to understand alone. You must have to refer other books as well. That concept is partially wrong. As it is said in Al Imran ayah 7 that there are two types of ayahs in Quran, similarly there are two perspectives of understanding the Quran. First is the basic guidance or remembrance (Tazakkur e Quran), from this perspective Quran is the easiest book ever. Anyone can get guidance from Quran alone without referring any other book. As Allah said in Surah Qamar four times ayah 17, 22, 32, 40 that “And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance (Al-Zikr), so is there any who will remember?”. Other is deep thinking (Taddabur e Quran) about the consequences of events and affairs mentioned in Quran. From this perspective Quran is difficult, because not everyone can do this, only experts can. NOTE: If anyone knows more such rules then share. For example, lets apply these rules to one of the most important concept in Quran which is mostly misunderstood by many shias and sunnis, i.e concept of waseela. Word waseela is used two times in Quran. Surah Maida 35 and Surah Isra 57. Maida 35 says… Seek waseela or means of nearness to Allah. (mostly this part of ayah is only quoted) يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَابْتَغُوا إِلَيْهِ الْوَسِيلَةَ وَجَاهِدُوا فِي سَبِيلِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ O believers! Fear Allah and seek the means to be closer to Him and make Jihad (struggle) in His Way so that you may be successful. Isra 57 says… Those whom they call upon besides Allah, themselves seek waseela to Allah. أُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ يَبْتَغُونَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِمُ الْوَسِيلَةَ أَيُّهُمْ أَقْرَبُ وَيَرْجُونَ رَحْمَتَهُ وَيَخَافُونَ عَذَابَهُ ۚ إِنَّ عَذَابَ رَبِّكَ كَانَ مَحْذُورًا Those to whom they call, themselves seek the means of access to their Rabb - trying as to who can be more near - they hope for His Mercy and fear His punishment, for the punishment of your Rabb is terrible indeed. There is no any third place in Quran where word waseela is used. So based on these two ayahs it is clear that calling upon others beside Allah in order to get closer to Allah is not the form of waseela mentioned in Maida 35. Allah taunt them on this type of approach. As it is also confirmed by Zumar 3. أَلَا لِلَّهِ الدِّينُ الْخَالِصُ ۚ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَا إِلَى اللَّهِ زُلْفَىٰ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِي مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ Unquestionably, for Allah is the pure religion. And those who take protectors besides Him [say], "We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allah in position." Indeed, Allah will judge between them concerning that over which they differ. Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar and [confirmed] disbeliever. TASK FOR SHIAS… Now, same way apply these rules yourself to those ayahs which are the foundations of your beliefs just to confirm that whether they are in accordance with the teachings of Quran or against it. Without referring any tafsir book, first try to understand from the Quran yourself. Do not do taqleed of others all the time. Here are some single ousted ayahs that are behind your (shia) major beliefs. Surah Baqrah ayah 124 (About Imamat) Surah Nisa ayah 59 (About Ulil Amr) Surah Rad ayah 43 (About who is witness) Surah Maida ayah 55 (About wilayat) Surah Maida ayah 69 (About delivery of message) Surah Saad ayah 75 (About who are aaleen) .... etc ____________________________________________________________________________________ إِنَّ أَصْدَقَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابُ اللَّهِ وَأَحْسَنَ الْهَدْىِ هَدْىُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَشَرَّ الأُمُورِ مُحْدَثَاتُهَا وَكُلَّ مُحْدَثَةٍ بِدْعَةٌ وَكُلَّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلاَلَةٌ وَكُلَّ ضَلاَلَةٍ فِي النَّارِ May Allah guide us to the true teachings of Quran and Sunnah of His beloved Prophet (s.a.w.w). Ameen
