  1. Salaam, Posting a topic after a long time So a dear brother ( @sunni muslim ) asked why is the "Quran and Sunnah" not enough. This is a fair question and deserves some thought so here are somethings to think about. It's important to note that whoever believes the quran is enough (Hasbona kitaballah) is wrong because authentic Sunni narrations confirm the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) specifically mentioned "Quran and Sunnah". Denying a clear edict from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) makes such a person munafiq? Why did some prominent sahaba reject this authentic edict from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and only accept Quran? Are they from the hypocrites then? Authentic sunni narrations also tell us that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) confirmed "Quran and AhlulBayt" as well. If the Prophet said "quran and sunnah" and "quran and ahlulbayt", then why do sunnis insist on "quran and sunnah" only? Are sunnis openly rejecting another edict of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)? Surely if the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said both, then the shia and sunni stance should be "Quran + AhlulBayt + Sunnah". Anything less would be rejecting the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), would it not? The shia stance on this is very clear. We take the Quran and the sunnah of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) as confirmed/explained by the AhlulBayt. Did the Prophet say "Quran AND (Sunnah OR AhlulBayt)", "QURAN OR (Sunnah OR AhlulBayt)"; "QURAN AND Sunnah AND AhlulBayt"; Let's ignore the AhlulBayt for the moment and focus on the sunnah. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "I am leaving behind Quran and Sunnah so you don't go astray." Immediately after the demise of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), Caliph Abu Bakr and subsequently Caliph Umar prohibit the narrations of sunnah, burn down written sunnah (500+ narrations at least). Did Abu Bakr and Umar purposely defy the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and in effect lead the Ummah astray. The argument put forth is that the Caliphs did not want sahaba to narrate wrong traditions. But these sahaba would have heard the narrations and seen the sunnah first hand. Surely adl-e-sahaba would mean no erroneous traditions within the first 5 yrs of the demise of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Caliph Abu Bakr burned 500+ narrations for fear of being wrong. Could it be that he remembered the narration "Prophets down leave inheritance" incorrectly. This is a conundrum. If the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "Quran and Sunnah" and Abu Bakr + Umar clearly denied the transmission of sunnah, what does it make them? How could the 2 closest sahaba reject a clear edict of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)? I would love to hear some other thoughts on this topic. P.S. @sunni muslim - I did not want to derail the other thread but our conversation was going to go in circles: Sunni Muslim: why is "quran and sunnah" not enough ShiaMan: because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "Quran and AhlulBayt" Sunni Muslim: he said both but tell me why "quran and sunnah" is not enough ShiaMan: errrr, because he said both???
  2. i read some where in a book that tatbir and shedding of blood and adziari rituals are sunnah in 12er from an ahkbari book, what do usulis say?
  3. I created this post because this is literally what we follow, Ahlulbayt or Sunnah. So by proving that 'Kitab Allah and Sunnah' is unauthentic than it proves that 50% is based off following an unauthentic hadith. If you can prove me wrong and that Kitab Allah and Ahlulbayt is unauthentic the 50% of the religion of Shia Muslims is false.
  4. I'm excited about my new life as a (shia) Muslim, so I naturally do a lot of digging on the internet for any info I can find that might help me perfect my prayer & perfect my submission to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Last night, I found a site called "NewMuslims . com" and I went to look around, figuring I could get some information on "next steps" for Shia reverts. I searched the term "shia" and was directed to a section called "Introduction to Sects (part 2 of 2). The constant talk of the Sunnah should have tipped me off from the get go, but here is what they had to say about us: (4. Shias[3] Also spelled “Shi’ites.” The “Twelver Shias” believe that, after the death of the Prophet, the Imamate (the political and religious leadership of the Muslim community) should have gone to 'Ali - the cousin and son-in-law of the Prophet - and his descendants as a divine right. Unlike the Sunnis, who perform prayers five times a day, the Shi'ites pray three times a day. The Twelver Shias population in 1980 was estimated to be 73,000,000. They are dominant in Iran, but are also found in Pakistan, India, Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Syria. There are also small Shia communities in the West, one of the largest in Dearborn, Michigan.) Isn't that fascinating? I never knew that I only prayed 3 times a day! I could have sworn that I learned how to count as a child from repeated viewings of the Bela Lugosi-type "vampire" on Sesame Street, but I guess I was wrong. Those five alarms I have on my phone are apparently only three alarms! Did anyone know that we had been counting completely wrong our entire lives? (yes, the above is very snarky sarcasm) Seriously though, how can it be argued that we only "pray three times a day"? My guess is that this has something to do with the OPTION to combine prayers (which correct me if I am wrong, but only two prayers can be combined per day... either Dhur & Asr or Maghrib & Isha.) I do not combine my prayers right now because I don't know the proper way to do so, but I don't really think that I would if I had the knowledge on how to properly do so anyway. I enjoy prayer, at the risk of sounding like a piety-signaler, I actually look forward to prayer because I am very much motivated to become perfect at offering it. Not only that, but I get more of a rejuvenation out of the five daily prayers than I ever did going to "rock concert church" where everyone is dancing, crying, and waving their hands around in the air. I never in my life saw myself as being someone who would eagerly anticipate having to perform religious duties, but Islam has done that for me in the short three week period or so that I have officially considered myself as a Muslim. What do you think brothers & sisters? Is this a salafi site sponsored by Saudi Arabia and if so, what is the Saudi compulsion to denigrate and undermine their brothers and sisters in Islam at any and all opportunities simply because we believe (correctly) that The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) chose his family to continue as his successors?
  5. Was Hafsa divorced by the Prophet? Yes! عن عمر بن الخطاب: أنَّ رسولَ اللهِ ﷺ طلَّق حفصةَ ثمَّ راجَعها.) انتهى من صحيح ابن حبان (١٠ / ١٠٠ / ٤٢٧٥). وصححه الألباني في سلسلة الأحاديث الصحيحة (٥ / ١٥ / ٢٠٠٧). وصححه شعيب الأرنؤوط في كتاب تخريج مشكل الآثار (٤٦١١). Narrated by Omar Ibn Al Khattab may Allaah be pleased with him: The Holy Prophet peace be upon him divorce Hafsah but then came back with her. Sources: Sahih Ibn Hibban, vol: 10, page: 100, hadith: 4275. Authenticated by Al Albaani in his Silsat Al Ahadith Al Sahiha, vol: 5, page: 15, hadith: 2007. And also authenticated by Shu'ayb Al Arna'out is the book "Takhrij Mushkil Al Athar" ( 4611 ). If Hafsa was remarried then by logic she was divorced!
  6. In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds, and prayers and peace be upon Muhammad and his family and companions. My dear Iraqi people! O, great people! I address you in this difficult moment of your plight and your jihadist life, with all your classes and sects: with your Arabs and Kurds, with your Sunnis and Shias, because the tribulation does not concern a sect without another, nor is nation without another, and just as the plight is the plight of all the Iraqi people, the jihadist position and heroic response must be And the struggle of struggle is the reality of all the Iraqi people. And since I knew my existence and my responsibility in this nation, I made this presence for the Shi’ite and Sunni alike, and for the Arab and the Kurdish alike, as I defended the message that unites them all and the belief that includes them all, and I only lived in my mind and existence to Islam, the path of salvation and everyone’s goal. I am with you, my brother and my Sunni son, as much as I am with you, my brother and my Shi’ite son .. I am with you as much as you are with Islam; and as far as you carry from this great torch to save Iraq from the nightmare of authoritarianism, humiliation and persecution. The tyrant and its guardians are trying to suggest to our innocent sons of the Sunnis that the issue is a Shiite issue to separate the Sunnis from their true battle against a common enemy. And I want to tell you, O sons of Ali and Hussein, and the sons of Abu Bakr and Omar that the battle is not between Shiites and Sunni rule. The Sunni rule represented by the Rightly-Guided Caliphs which was based on Islam and justice, Ali, peace be upon him, carried the sword to defend him when he fought a soldier in the wars of apostasy under the banner of the first caliph - Abu Bakr - «2»), and we all fight against the banner of Islam and under the banner of Islam no matter what Its color. The Sunni rule that carried the flag of Islam had given Shiite scholars a half-century before the necessity of jihad for it, and hundreds of thousands of Shiites came out and made their blood cheap in order to preserve the flag of Islam, and to protect the Sunni rule that was based on Islam. Today's ruling is not Sunni rule, although the dominant group is historically affiliated with Sunni. Sunni rule does not mean the rule of a person born of Sunni parents, but rather the rule of Abu Bakr and Omar who challenged the tyrants of rule, in Iraq today in all their actions, they violate the sanctity of Islam and the sanctity of Ali and Omar together every day, and in every step of their criminal steps. Do you not see - my children and brothers - that they overthrew the religious rituals defended by me and Omar together ?! Do you not see that they filled the country with wines and pig fields and all the means of insanity and corruption that Ali and Omar fought together ?! Do you not see that they are practicing the most severe forms of injustice and tyranny towards all groups of people ?! And they are increasing day by day in hatred of the people, and have mastered the contempt of its dignity and separation from it, and the sit-in against it in their cemeteries surrounded by security and forces, while Ali and Omar lived with people and people and in the midst of people and with their pains and hopes. Do you not see the clan monopoly of these people on the authority of a tribal one who mislead the party in a false and fake manner ?! And they closed the doors of progress in front of all the masses of the people, except those who complained to themselves of humiliation and submission, sold their dignity and turned into humiliating slaves. These rulers have even insulted the dignity of the Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party, as they worked to transform it from an ideological party into a gang, joining people by force and coercion. They felt fear, even from the Arab Socialist Party itself, which they claim to represent, they felt fear of it if it remained a real party that has its own rules that it adopts, and for this they wanted to destroy its rules to turn it into an assembly based on coercion and torture to lose any real content to it. My brothers and children from Mosul and Basra ... from the sons of Baghdad and Karbala and Najaf ... from the sons of Samarra and Al-Kadhimiya ... from the sons of Amara, Kut and Sulaimaniya ... from the sons of Iraq everywhere, I promise you that I am all for you and all of you, and that you are all my goal in The present and the future .. Let your word unite, and let your ranks coalesce under the banner of Islam, and in order to save Iraq from the nightmare of this dominating group, and to build a free and decent Iraq that is covered by the justice of Islam and the pride of human dignity, and in which all citizens - regardless of their nationalities and doctrines - feel that they are brothers, they all contribute to Lead their country and build their country, and see the realities of their Islamic ideals derived from our Islamic mission and the dawn of our great history. Peace, mercy and blessings of God. Muhammad Baqir Al-Sadr 20-25 / Shaaban / 1399 - 14-19 / 7/1979
  7. Read the Reddit comments to understand what the thread was about, since the post has since been deleted. ....................................................................................... I'm so tired of the utterly nonsensical and VERY COMMON Sunni notion of 'I am happy to seek unity with Shias as long as they don't curse/insult/abuse any Sahaba, and especially NOT Aisha, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman. Firstly, any Shia claim regarding the sahabi that happens to go against the Sunni narrative is considered insulting. Secondly, and more importantly, is that the same notion is true for Shias... You are insulting the Ahlul Bayt by not accepting them as divinely appointed leaders of Allah, and infallible individuals, and perfect preservers of the religion of Islam, and a high means of seeking closeness to Allah (intercession). Not only are you insulting revered Shia figures by not following them, you are commiting MAJOR shirk by giving a false attribute to Allah, by saying that Allah has not always appointed an infallible leader on this Earth, and that there currently isn't an infallible leader. Furthermore, the real kicker is that plenty of revered Shia figures, such as Abu Talib (رضي الله عنه), are considered kuffar by Sunnis. Is this not insulting? So, how can we Shias unite with Sunnis based on their own fallacious logic? Shias are the minority, and Sunnis are the majority. It makes Sunnis think that they are Orthodox and that they have to unite with Heterodox for political and humanitarian reasons, and that Shias must make [ridiculous] compromises. Shias are far more receptive to the unity message, because we actually understand Sunni Islam, and can see the commonalities. We understand that we can't make Sunnis compromise on their beliefs. Simply by being the minority within Islam, by nature we Shias already understand Sunni beliefs, whereas Sunnis have a basic strawman understanding of Shia beliefs... which is natural, considering that they are the majority. Anyways, the point of my post is the following: Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given. ...This is to show that we Shias and Sunnis can unite, but we cannot unite upon revered figures and imamah. ...This will also serve as a way of showing Sunnis that this argument of theirs makes no sense. Another important question we may ask is "What about commonly revered figures like Imam Ali (عليه السلام) who is given different status in both sects? Can we unite upon Imam Ali (عليه السلام)?" ...a common Sunni criticism of political unity is that "Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) is given an improper status in Shia religion because they call upon him... tawassul (intercession) of the 'dead' is Shirk! So there is absolutely no room for unity since we can't even agree on the status of the sahabi" [yes, I am aware that the Imams (عليه السلام) are still alive, but Sunnis don't believe this...] I would love to hear your thoughts. Wassalam. JazakAllah Khair. Fi sabilillah.
  8. Salaam, May be I have totally misunderstood the concept of sunnah. The definition I found was: The sunnah of Muhammad includes his specific words (Sunnah Qawliyyah), habits, practices (Sunnah Fiiliyyah), and silent approvals (Sunnah Taqririyyah). According to Muslim belief, Muhammad was the best exemplar for Muslims, and his practices are to be adhered to in fulfilling the divine injunctions, carrying out religious rites, and moulding life in accord with the will of God. Instituting these practices was, as the Quran states, a part of Muhammad's responsibility as a messenger of God. Recording the sunnah was an Arabian tradition and, once people converted to Islam, they brought this custom to their religion. Based on the above, I made the determination that the Prophet (saw) asking Imam Ali (as) for help in a variety of affairs can and should be considered established sunnah. Then I remembered the following: O Sons of 'Abdu 'l-Muttalib! By Allah, I do not know of any person among the Arabs who has come to his people with better than what I have brought to you. I have brought to you the good of this world and the next, and I have been commanded by the Lord to call you unto Him. Therefore, who amongst you will support me in this matter so that he may be my brother (akhhi), my successor (wasiyyi) and my caliph (khalifati) among you? This was the first time that the Prophet openly and publicly called the relations to accept him as the Messenger and Prophet of Allah; he also uses the words "akhi wa wasiyyi wa khalifati- my brother, my successor, my caliph" for the person who will aid him in this mission. No one answered him; they all held back except the youngest of them - 'Ali bin Abi Talib. He stood up and said, "I will be your helper, O Prophet of God." The Prophet put his hand on the back of 'Ali's neck and said: "Inna hadha akhhi wa wasiyyi wa khalifati fikum, fasma'u lahu wa ati'u - Verily this is my brother, my successor, and my caliph amongst you; therefore, listen to him and obey." Based on my limited knowledge, I think calling upon Ali is sunnah as the very least (based on the definition of sunnah) and obligatory at most (based on the Prophet (saw) making Imam Ali (as) his wasi in return for promising to help the Prophet (saw)). I could even argue that the Prophet using Imam Ali (as) for services to Islam was divine Will. But then someone on SC said the following: What am I missing?
  9. السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ (May Peace and Mercy and Blessings of Allah Be Upon You) My Shia Muslim Brothers and Shia Muslim Sisters in Islam. Hope you all are Living a Good Life By رَحمة (The Mercy) of Allah الحمد لله (All Praises Belongs to Allah). My Shia Muslim Brothers and Shia Muslim Sisters, as you all know in Islam we all must live a life of Honour and Dignity and Islam is the Only Religion which Gave us the Complete code of Life سبحان الله‎ (Allah is Perfect). I would say It's really such a Blessing for us to be Blessed with Islam. To Become a Muslim Gentleman of Honour and Dignity, We must be careful on actions we do. The way we Walk, The Way we Talk, The Way we Eat, The way we Wear Clothes, The Way we wear Shoes, The Way we Comb our Hair, The Way we dye our Hair, The Way we Take Bath, The Way we Wear Jewellery, The Way we Sleep, The Way we enter someone's home, The Way we are in a Gathering, The Way we Make Choices for ourselves (when choosing a Spouse), The Way we Marry, The Way we Give Time to Our Family and Friends, The Way we deal Ignorant People (Jaahil) in our Daily Lives, The way we Workout , The Way we do Jihad etc. In all situations of Life, we truly are Blessed by the Instructions Given by Islam. I would say it's such a Blessing. Islam wants Muslim Gentlemen to be Better Sons, Better Brothers, Better Husbands and Better Fathers, الحمد لله (All Praises Belongs to Allah). I am 19 and This Rajab I will be 20 انشاء اللہ (If Allah Wills). I really wanna become the Gentleman I know Myself and Live the Life of Honour and Dignity. I Want to be Respected in Society wherever I go. I hope this thread will also be Beneficial (As Muslims we should Benefit Each Other) for All Muslim Teenagers (Brothers) and all Muslim Young Adults (Brothers) who are living their Lives with Aim and wanna Become the Gentleman they know themselves and want to live a Life of Honour and Dignity. So I want an Islamic book on Etiquette and Manners on living Life According to the Sunnah of Master Muhammad ﷺ (Peace and Blessing be Upon Him) and According to Sunnah of Ahlul-Bayt رضي الله عنهم (Allah Is Pleased with Them) and Imams after Them رحمه الله (Allah Have Mercy Upon Them). I came across the Book of Allamah Baqir Majilisi رحمه الله (Allah Have Mercy Upon Him) Naming Tehzib-ul-Islam (Etiquette according to Islamic Laws), This Book was Great but I want more. I want A Big Islamic Book on Etiquette. I know This is ShiaChat and we should only answer in Shia Perspective but I will also Appreciate if You All will give me with some Sunni References . Everyone of Us Gonna Die Someday. Why Not live this Life According to Sunnah. جزاك اللهُ خيرًا (May Allah Reward you With Goodness)
  10. Salam Is there any powerful dua that immediately eliminates bad habits from your mind ?
  11. Assalam-O-Alaikum My Shia Brothers in Islam. I am not good in English, I hope you understand my words. My question is, Is Widow Remarriage Encouraged in Islam or is it just Merely Permissible? Because Quran says that those who are not married should get married (Both Men & Women, Virgins, Widows/ers, Divorced). It's just literal interpretation. Don't know what Islam says about this. What if The Widow Woman don't want to get married in the first place because she have some love feelings for her dead husband? Same for the Widower? Does Not Marrying and Remarrying Again would be punished by Allah?? Jazaak-Allah-Khair!!
  12. Bismillah ar-Rahman ir-Raheem Assalaam Alaikum, My question is regarding male circumcision and performing tawaf around the Kaaba. I found no basis for it in al-Quran and numerous marjas have ruled circumcision is required of a man for his tawaf around Kaaba to be accepted yet don't explain why. Why is it wajib for a man to be circumcised to circumambulate the Kaaba? If answers could be provided with references to authentic ahadith it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  13. Why twelver shias consider ‘Praying is better than sleep’ (al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm) a biddah? وما رواه هو أيضا عن أحمد بن الحسن عن الحسين عن فضالة عن العلا عن محمد بن مسلم عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: كان أبي ينادي في بيته بالصلاة خير من النوم” Imam Abu Jaafar (Al-Baqir) said: ‘My father (Ali Ibn Al-Hussein, Al-Sajjad/Zayn Al-Abideen) used to call out from his house in prayer: ”Praying is better than sleep’ (al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm)’. [Tahdhib vol.7, p.63 no. 15, Wasa’el Al-Shia v.22 S.651, Number 4. Hadith grading: Muwathaq/authentic] Note: Narration say from his house, so it can not be considered as taqqiyah, common shia excuse. فأما ما رواه محمد بن علي بن محبوب عن أحمد بن الحسن عن الحسين عن حماد بن عيسى عن شعيب بن يعقوب عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: النداء والتثويب في الاقامة من السنة” Imam Abu Abdallah (Al-Sadiq) said: ‘The calling and the Tathweeb in Iqamah is from the Sunnah.’ [Wasa’el Al-Shia vol.22, p.65 no.3 and in Tahtheeb Al-Ahkaam] Tathweeb stands for ‘al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm'. Scholar Al-Hilli says Tathweeb is biddah Link. Which is contradiction to narrations above. والتثويب مكروه وهو قول: ” الصلاة خير من النوم ” ‘Al-Tathweeb is disliked (Makrooh) and it’s the saying: “as-salaatu khayrun min al-nawn”.’
  14. Wasail al Shia Volume 4 Page 382 Imam Jafar Sadigh (alaihe salam) said "Black is makrooh on all items except for turban, cloak." (There is one more which I forget) In all depictions the Imams and Prophets are depicted in turbans. Wasail al Shia Volume 3 Page 297 At Ghadir Khums the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wasallam) tied a green imamah onto the head of Imam Ali (alaihe salam) which was green in colour with one end in front and one end behind. All our scholars wear turbans, but none recommend it for us, some even discourage. In Qom, graduates only wear turbans. Why is that?
  15. So I started this topic just to share some sunnats I have learned with others. I'll post one per day, and since I'm not a mujtahid I'll be adding my sources so you can check. Feel free to share whatever you know. I'll start with the first sunnat of the day: Zikr when waking up and going to sleep. In Allamah Seyed Tabatabai's book "Prayers of the last Prophet," it reads on page 107 that al Qutb al Rawandi narrarated that Imam Zain Abideen (peace be upon him) was in Yazid's palace, and Yazid was questioning him finding a reason to kill him. The Imam, while being questioned, was moving prayer beads in his hand. Yazid asked him why he wasn't looking at him. The Imam (peace be upon him) said:(interpretation of the meaning) that his father had told him that his grand father, the Prophet Muhammad (peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him), would say "O Allah, I start my day glorifying you as many times as I count on my prayer beads." and would say a similar thing before bed. Tips: Say phrases that will benefit you most in the next life like salawat or tasbih e Fatimah.
  16. Salaamu alaykum all, I've decided to begin a new personal project in which I try to implement a new sunnah of the Prophet every day of the following week (and till the 40 days after such that it becomes a habit.) I will start with the duas of the Prophet SAWS. He had a unique one for nearly every action in his daily routine. This will help us remember Allah throughout the day, as a matter of course. My motivations behind starting this project are in this post entitled A Sunnah a Day Keeps the Devil Away. I invite you all to join me in this project which will begin July 15th inshaAllah (I decided to give it a week to get more people on board.) We will hold each other accountable and encourage one another to righteousness, inshaAllah. Make sure to subscribe to the email list for updates!
  17. Shia's main Issue Is a Political Or Religious problem & what is solution for that as far i know islam is a root word of Salam (Peace) why all #Muslims are not #United Islam teach us Unity Brotherhood & what we are doing we have devided Islam in Sects I think islam is a religioun of peace so i don't think #Allah (SWT) like Sections In Islam, by promoting #Fitnah i don't think we will Achieve #Jannah.

As-Salam 'Alaikum, Allah has commanded us to do tawassul in His Book (5:35): يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَابْتَغُوا إِلَيْهِ الْوَسِيلَةَ وَجَاهِدُوا فِي سَبِيلِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ You who have iman! Have taqwa of Allah and seek the wasilah unto Him, and do jihad in His Way, so that hopefully you will be successful. Tawassul literally means seeking a wasilah unto Allah. In simpler terms, you need something from your Lord, and you have two options: 1. Asking Him directly, imploring Him to grant you your wish in consideration of your own worth before Him; or 2. Asking Him directly, but imploring Him to grant you your wishes in consideration of the worth of someone before Him. The second case is that of tawassul. If I ask Allah directly without using tawassul, there is no problem with it. But, my supplication would be considered based upon my worth before my Creator. If I am not worth much in His eyes, then my du'a would be treated as such. Its chances of acceptance and fulfillment are thus significantly threatened. However, if my worth in Allah's eyes is very great, then my supplications would have very high chances of success. Allah is aware that most of us are weak before Him. So, He has allowed and even commanded us to practice tawassul, as a mercy from Him. Salafis then come up with their bid'ah in tawassul. To them, you can only do tawassul with the living believers, and never with any dead or unseen creature. There is no verse that forbids tawassul with the dead or unseen, and there is no hadith that forbids it either. Therefore, the Salafi position is only one of their bid'ahs in the religion. Besides, there is actual Qur'anic evidence in support of tawassul with the dead (17:56-57): قُلِ ادْعُوا الَّذِينَ زَعَمْتُم مِّن دُونِهِ فَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ كَشْفَ الضُّرِّ عَنكُمْ وَلَا تَحْوِيلًا أُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ يَبْتَغُونَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِمُ الْوَسِيلَةَ أَيُّهُمْ أَقْرَبُ وَيَرْجُونَ رَحْمَتَهُ وَيَخَافُونَ عَذَابَهُ إِنَّ عَذَابَ رَبِّكَ كَانَ مَحْذُورًا Say, ‘Invoke those whom you claim [to be gods] besides Him. They have no power to remove your distress nor to bring about any change [in your state]. They [themselves] are the ones who supplicate, seeking the wasilah unto their Lord, whoever is nearer [to Him], expecting His mercy and fearing His punishment.’ Indeed your Lord’s punishment is a thing to beware of. This ayah reveals that Prophet 'Isa, peace be upon him, and other people that were deified practised tawassul. Each one of them took a person nearer to Allah than himself as his wasilah. Meanwhile, Prophet 'Isa, during his time, was the nearest creature to Allah alive. So, it was impossible that he was using a living person as his wasilah.
  19. Jonathan AC Brown discusses the role of hadiths in the Sunni and Shia traditions and why abandoning them does more harm than good:
  20. Salaam, Are there any shias who originally sunni's on this form, if you can share about how and why you would converted that wuld be great
  21. A wahabi used this verse in the quran to prove that we will see Allah(swt). How would a shia refute this “Some faces that Day shall be Naadirah (shining and radiant). Looking at their Lord (Allaah)” [al-Qiyaamah :22-23]
  22. Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of 'Imran over the worlds - How is this verse alluding to the family of muhammad. Also can one explain what Anwar Qazwini was trying to say in this lecture
