  1. Salaam, I am planning a trip for this summer after I graduate; I want to go to sites that are holy to Shia. I plan to go to Tehran first, then to the Shrine of Imam Reza, followed by visiting Qom. I do wish to visit Iraq next, as the southern area of the country where Kerbalah and Najaf are, is generally safe. I would like to end my trip in Medina to visit the shrine of Imam Hassan. I would eventually like to go to Damascus, but unfortunately the turmoil in Syria is far too much at this moment, so that will be for another trip. Thoughts and advice? Did I leave anything out? (US Citizen btw)

    Pilgrimage to Iran

    Salaam, I am a Sunni who has a Shia friend who is going on pilgrimage to Iran. I would like to buy him a going away gift but I am not sure what would be appropriate. Any help would be much appreciated shukran.
  3. English Pakistani Sunni scholars pilgrimage Imam Reza holy shrine (AhlulBayt News Agency) - Twenty Sunni scholars from Pakistan living in England went on pilgrimage of Razavi Holy Shrine in Razavi Karamat Ten Days Celebration. According to Astan News, head of this group said, “A 20-person group including prominent and effective religious scholars residing in England visited Mashhad and Razavi Holy Shrine”. Ja’far Najm stated, “After visiting Razavi Holy Shrine, the group met with Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Imami, Educational Assistant of Razavi University of Islamic Sciences, and got familiar with activities, fields of study, establishment method and cultural activities of this university”. He recognized Imam Reza’s (A.S.) Holy Shrine as a center for unity of Muslims and added, “In addition to receive spiritual emanations, pilgrimage of Sunni Muslims in this holy place consolidates Muslims’ unity”. On the sideline of his visitation in Razavi Holy Shrine, Seyyed Amir Hossein Naqvi, another member of the group stated, “Grandeur and vastness of this holy place is exemplary and unexplainable. Devotion and affection toward Imam Reza (A.S.) is like an elixir which close our hearts to each other, despite of our different Islamic sects”. Birmingham’s Friday leader said that western countries try to tarnish Islam’s face by forming and supporting Wahhabism and Isis. He also added, “Unity among Sunni and Shia Muslims has to be followed seriously so that we can resist against evil plots of the enemy”. “Thanks to God, I have had the success of visiting Razavi Shrine for a few times. However, I am very happy today because my current visitation is happening in Karamat Ten Days Celebration”, he stated. Qur’an museum was introduced by Birmingham Friday Leader as one of the most equipped museums in the Islamic world. He also added, “This museums’ Qur’ans can be found nowhere and it has perfectly shown greatness of Islamic culture to the people of the world”. It is worth mentioning that the group visited Astan Quds Razavi’s physical education institute on the first day of its presence in Mashhad. It should also be mentioned that during their presence in Mashhad, members of this group also met with Ayatollah Noori Hamedani. http://en.abna24.com/news/iran/english-pakistani-sunni-scholars-pilgrimage-imam-reza-holy-shrine_845238.html
  4. I had a dream regarding imam Ali. If anyone knows anything about dreams or how to interpret one, that would be great, as im really really curious what it meant. Its really long, i apologize in advance! My family and i were moving to iraq for my dad's business, and i was really saddened by this because iraq is not an ideal place to live. I cried the whole way there (we walked there from California in the dream). When we arrived, my sister and i separated from my family and were told one of the imam's shrine was near by. We went near the shrine, but it was covered with a cloth because no one was allowed to see it at that hour. My sister and i went near the shrine and i asked her who's shrine it was and she told me it was imam ali's. A man came up to us and asked me if i wanted to see the shrine, and i said yes. He told me i couldnt go near it or touch it though and i can only see it from a distance. I agreed and he told my sister this offer was only for me. He removed the cloth and i saw the shrine. i began to cry and the man told me crying wasnt allowed, so i stopped. I began reciting "Nady Ali" which means "Call upon Ali" and after i said that verse a big brown horse came from behind the shrine and stood next to it. I recited the verse again so the horse came near me and lowered its head allowing me to pet it,and the last time i said the verse the hoarse jumped, opening the curtain that covered the shrine. I walked in and saw the hoarse planting a pink flower near the shrine. Itold the horse i wanted the flower as a memory of that moment. the horse told me i wasnt allowed to take the flower because it was not "a flower from heaven." i took the flower anyway, pulling it from the ground, and the horse looked upset. I gave the flower back and said id just plant my own flower next to the shrine. I know its long and weird, but im really really curious as to what all of this means! if anyone knows or knows where icould find out that would be great!
  5. Salam Alaikum everyone! I was just curious, which shrines/ziyarah have you visited? I've been to Mashad and Qom so far
  6. Brother and sisters, I have a question today on the shrines/tombs over graves. Were there any graves or tombs at the time of Holy Prophet ? As salafis say that if shrines would have been allowed Prophet Muhammad would have build the shrine over the grave of Hazrat Hamza (a.s) and I have also heard them saying that he did not allow to build shrine over the grave of Seyeda Khadija (a.s). Is it true ? If yes why ? If no, is there any source ? Some extra proofs proving the construction of Shrines over graves permissible from their sources will be appreciated NOTE : I POST QUESTIONS LIKE THIS BECAUSE I JUST WANT TO PROVE THEM WRONG AND ALSO TO PROVE MY BELIEFS RIGHT FROM NON SHIA SOURCES
  7. Assalamo alaykom. The point of the topic is to throwing some images of shia people and places in Iran. You can also post any image that you think match the topic( doesn't matter if the image has been took in an another country). Preferred handy cam pictures or selfies. Our shohada houses & street & who died in syria. Imam khamenei h.a in Imam reza a.s Shrine
  8. I often see people using a vague verse to substantiate building dargahs over saintly people, in my region now even ordinary people are building dargahs of their relatives, loved ones and who they think was righteous , is it not a bad trend as we cant reclaim the space back/

  10. A Lebanese family donated an artifact to the Museum of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain dating back to the Phoenician Age. Lebanese experts confirmed that the artifact dated back to five thousand years ago, during the time of the Phoenicians. The relic (40cm long and 20cm wide) is carved in the form of a ship, symbolizing that Hussein is the -Rescue Ship- as reported by Prophet Muhammad and hence the idea of the gift to the Museum of Imam Hussain. Sayyid Dhyai al-Deen, the Director of the Museum, said -Since the opening of the Museum of Imam Hussain, numerous artifacts were gifted from Ahl al-Bayt lovers.- It is mentioned that the museum celebrated with the family who gifted the artifact from the Republic of Lebanon that was provided by Dr. Kaplan Kaplan, Chairman of the Council of the South, responsible for building the infrastructure in southern Lebanon. http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=37 Note: We are the International Media Unit in the holy shrine of Imam Hussain, Karbala Iraq.

  16. As Iranian religious leaders abstain from issuing fatwas instructing their followers to go on jihad in Syria, Iranians from different youth organizations continue to attend mass gatherings calling for the protection of shrines, tombs and mosques from salafist militants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qsq8T9pgWRo Thoughts?

  19. Al Salaamu 3alaykum, I RARELY have dreams...like once every 4 months or more! Its not that I don't have them, everyone has dreams(around 2-4 every night). But I just don't remember them... But, with God's will, I remembered this one, and I just had to share it. Here goes: It starts in Iran(I live in Lebanon) and I go to Imam Ali Ridha's Shrine. It was much different than the pictures, there weren't as many people as I expected, and men and women were mixed(don't ask). Also, when I entered the main room(where Imam Ali Ridha is buried), there was just a wall with a black covering on it. I blink and suddenly I am by the wall. I get close to it and start kissing it and crying(I have never cried in any majlis...EVER! I just don't know why). But suddenly, I get thrown by an invisible power across the whole room and the dream finishes. I would appreciate tafseerat of this dream warmly... Thank you!
