  1. Salam, everyone. I am a Sunni Hanafi in Pakistan. In sh'Allah, I want to buy Quran tafsirs and increase my Islamic knowledge. Unfortunately, I am not proficient in Arabic and Urdu. I want to read Quran tafsirs that are written or have been translated into English. Please suggest 2 or 3 most widely acclaimed Tafsirs/Exegesis each for Shias and Sunnis. Shukeriya.
  2. Today I dreamt that I was in a house near the sea with my closest freind and a group of unknown people. I then went out to the balcony we’re I was looking at the sky when suddenly a huge transparent clock appeared. After a brief moment the clock started ticking somehow i knew that when the clock finishes it’s cycle it meant that whoever is Muslim stays Muslim and whoever is kafir stays kafir and I started to do istighfar and my friend was telling people to become Muslim before it’s late. before the clock reached it’s full cycle I started to tell my friend to do istighfar in which he preceded. The moment the clock finished it’s cycle the sky turned red and a huge battle happened in the sky I don’t know what or who it was but the battle intensified till it reached the ground were i was pleading to Allah to forgive me then I placed my head onto the ground as if I was praying and I woke up I hear its makrooh to speak about dreams but i just want a tafsir is this bad or good and should I do something about it
  3. Commentary on the Chapter Nuh (Noah) in Quran by Br. Khalil Jaffer if you like it, and I am sure you will, on the suggested videos section, you can find the other sessions. ma salam :)
  4. Salaam brothers and sisters, I have been looking for a Quran Tafsir & Translation by Shia scholars/sheikhs but so far haven't been successful... Recently I've been working on the habit of reading more Quran. If anybody knows a good source for a good Tafsir as well as Translation written by a Shia scholar/sheikh, kindly link me up. And please refrain from commenting on how Shia/Sunni translations are the same because they are not i.e. I'm hoping to find material with the correct Shia perspective (or as close as possible) on Quranic verses in light of Ahlulbayt's teachings. Thank you very much in advance.
  5. Salam Aleikum wa rahmatullah my dear brothers and sisters. Inshallah you are all doing well. This is a short clip on the necissity to recite the holy Qur'an daily, to learn lessons from it and the Thawab for it. The video itself is in arabic. But subtitles in english are availible.

  8. Salaam. NOTE: Only for Arabic Readers. Recently al-Burhan Fi Tafsir al-Qur'an (8 vols.) by Sayyid Hashim al-Bahrani has been uploaded in clear scanned pdf format. For those who dont know, the work is a Tafsir of the Qur'an using only the Ahadith from our sources (the most encyclopedic out there), thus basically the interpretation of the Imams for all the verses. Here is the link http://alfeker.net/library.php?id=1949.
  9. Bismihi Ta'ala As-salamu alaikum Please recommend one or more Shi'I translations of the Qur'an (English).

  11. Hi Brothers I am new here. I have read the Tafsir by Al-Kashani part 1 ( 1-18), english translation. I am very interested in the book and tafsir and explanation. However, it is only part 1 (1-18). I have been trying to find whether part 2 available? If anyone knows about the remaining part of the book, please guide me. If not available in english, please let me know where I can get it in other languages. I would really appreciate your kind comment and help. thanks.
  12. I would like to see reliable / trustworthy shia Quran translation site or sites and also for the Prayer times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXLUOrhtxk4 In this video , around 1:00 , a Quraniq verse is shared. In the video two different translation's are shown. When I read Shakir's english translation , it was the same as the non-shia translation int his video. While some said he was maybe a Shia and his tafsir was good. Can we conclude now that that is not the case ? Second on praytime.info wich is also considered as a Shia site for Shia and Sunni muslims , the same Non-shia translation is given about the verse 4:24 What am I missing here ? Does somebody know wich translation source is used or a possible one for the translation in the video ? Thus a shia translation. After reading the following page i think it is a site for shia and sunni muslims , that is why they give different calculation methods for prayer , but I do not know if this " group of muslims " is only shia or not.. http://praytime.info/about.html Your thought's ? Thank you in advance and may Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى grant you succes

  14. Many people know this verse. Few however have understand its true meaning. My goal in this post is to offer an understanding of this verse which is compliant with modern scientific understanding. First let's look at the traditional understanding and test its validity. Is everything created in pairs on this planet? The answer is no. Asexual organisms, hermaphrodites, arthenogenetic organisms, schizophyllum commune (which has 26000 different sexes) are all studied topics in biology which contradict this understanding. Then what could it possibly mean? The first hint is the use of the verb "to create". This verse is relating to the creation of the universe. The big bang theory is accepted among scientists and this is where we should look to unravel the true meaning of this verse. In nature there is an element known as heavy hydrogen, also known as deuterium. The deuterium isotope's name is formed from the Greek deuteros meaning "second", to denote the two particles composing the nucleus. It's the most simple "pair" in nature. The nucleus of deuterium, called a deuteron, contains one proton and one neutron. Now this element played a very important role in the creation of this universe and the big bang. The explanation is very complex so I'll try to keep it as simple as possible. Deuterium played a huge role in the first minutes after big bang. It defined the number and ratios of the elements that were formed in the Big Bang. Especially the formation of helium. Helium can only be formed with an in between step of forming deuterium. As you know helium is what fuels stars like our sun and every other star in this universe. As we know every living thing on this planet is composed of elements created in stars. And here we have in Quran a verse stating, "And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember" Isn't this mind-blowing? Indeed everything "the universe" was created by an element known as a pair "deuterium", which later formed helium, fueled the stars and created life.
  15. Assalamun alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Ta'ala wa Barkatuh, Dear brothers and sisters, While reading the Holy Qur'an I have come across certain verse whose apparent contradictions have been bothering me for some time now. Ismah (immunity from sins and ignoble acts) of the Anbiya [as] and A'immah [as] is a well-established pillar of our madhab. Traditionally, there are many verses from the Qur'an towards which the ulama point as being the basis of this concept, chief among them being - “So I swear by Your Might (O Lord) that I will surely mislead them all together except the devoted servants of Yours from among them.” (38:82-3; 15:39-40) , and “…As for my servants, you have no power over them except those who follow you from among the misled people…” (15:41) . These verses clearly state that the prophets(as) are safe from Shaytan's deception. They have also been reproduced as proof for ismah in many writings,such as here , here and here. However, we see that despite this fact, the Shaytan was able to trick Hazrat Adam[as] into eating the fruit from the forbidden tree - Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them, bringing openly before their minds all their shame that was hidden from them (before): he said: "Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest ye should become angels or such beings as live for ever." (7:20) And he swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser. (7:21) So by deceit he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies. And their Lord called unto them: "Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy unto you?" (7:22) An important note : Dear brothers and sisters, whether or not Hazrat Adam [as] committed a sin/mistake is irrelevant to my question, for I am myself a firm believer in the concept of ismah. My question is about something more fundamental - given that the prophets are ma'soom and out of bounds/ off-limits for the Shaytan, how was he able to trick Adam [as] into eating the forbidden fruit? How do we resolve the apparent contradiction between these verses?
  16. If anyone is searching for a Qur'an app here is the only for you: http://www.almubin.com/alquran3/ . For a good translation of the Qur'an within the app click on: Translations and select number 35 And for an exegesis of the Holy Qur'an online visit http://www.almizan.org/ If you want a complete exegesis (on every verse) you will have to download it from here http://islamicmobility.com/book/author/Aga Mahdi Puya (Agha Pooya) For the best reading experience i recommend buying an iPad mini 4. You can get a cheap one (if available) from Apple https://www.apple.com/us/search/refurbished-iPad-mini-4?src=globalnav
  17. An Instance of Imami Ta`wil There is a difference between Tafsir and Ta`wil. The Qur'an has many interpretive layers and no one knows them all except Allah himself and the 'Rasikhuna fil Ilm' [those deeply entrenched in knowledge]. Below is one instance of the Imam unveiling an inner meaning of a part of the verse which is not at all apparent upon a literal reading. It should make us all take a step back from the claim that we can fully understand the Qur`an without their guidance. الفقيه: باسناده عن عبدالله بن سنان قال: أتيت أبا عبدالله عليه السلام فقلت له: جعلني الله فداك ما معنى قول الله عزوجل: ثُمَّ لْيَقْضُوا تَفَثَهُمْ قال: أخذ الشارب وقص الاظفار وما أشبه ذلك، قال: قلت: جعلت فداك فإن ذريحا المحاربي حدثني عنك أنك قلت: ثُمَّ لْيَقْضُوا تَفَثَهُمْ لقاء الامام وَلْيُوفُوا نُذُورَهُمْ تلك المناسك، قال: صدق ذريح وصدقت، إن للقرآن ظاهرا وباطنا ومن يحتمل ما يحتمل ذريح al-Faqih: Via his chain to Abdallah b. Sinan who said: I came to Aba Abdillah عليه السلام and said to him: may Allah make me your ransom, what is the meaning of the words of Allah Mighty and Majestic: “then they should remove their untidiness” (22:29), he said: trimming the mustache and cutting the nails, I said: may I be made your ransom, Dharih al-Muharibi narrated to me quoting you as saying: “then they should remove their untidiness” means ‘visit the Imam’ and “fulfill their vows” refers to ‘[perform] the pilgrimage rites’, he said: Dharih was right and so are you, verily for the Qur’an there is an exoteric and esoteric [layered meanings], and who can bear what is borne by Dharih? Commentary The verse in question is in Surat al-Hajj. It contains instructions to those making the Hajj. It says: “Then they should remove their untidiness, fulfill their vows and circumambulate the Ancient House” (22:29) The apparent meaning of ‘remove their untidiness’ is for a pilgrim to groom himself, and this would involve acts like trimming the mustache and cutting the nails, this is also what we find in the answer of the Imam to Abdallah b. Sinan. However, he had given a different answer to Dharih consonant with the latter's spiritual maturity. As is well known - the `Aimma used to answer the people based on the levels of their ability. Abdallah b. Sinan had heard this different meaning from Dharih and wanted to confirm it from the Imam himself. This is when the Imam reveals to him the exterior and interior meaning of the verse. The Imam also notes that he does not disclose the inner meaning to everyone but only those who have the capacity to handle it. و على هذا فالمراد بالتفث أو قضائه تطهير البدن و القلب و الروح من الأوساخ الظاهرة و الباطنة، فيدخل فيه المعنيان معا إذ الغسل و حلق الشعر و قص الأظفار تطهير للبدن من الأوساخ الظاهرة، و لقاء الإمام تطهير للقلب من الأدران و الأوساخ الباطنة التي هي الجهل و الضلال و الصفات الرديئة و الأخلاق الدنية al-Majlisi: The point of intersection between the two meanings is to interpret removal of dirt as achieving cleanliness from all that which blemishes a human whether it be in his physical body, his heart or soul. Bathing, trimming the hair and cutting the nails would be cleanliness of the body from physical dirt, while meeting the Imam and hearing his piercing words would be cleaning the heart from spiritual dirt such as ignorance, misguidance, repulsive attributes and base character. وجهة الاشتراك بين التفسير والتأويل التطهير فإن أحدهما تطهير للبدن عن الأوساخ الظاهرة وما يجري مجراها والآخر تطهير للقلب من الأوساخ الباطنة التي هي الجهل والضلال والعمى Faydh al-Kashani: The two meanings are related one being Ta`wil and the other is Tafsir both related to cleanliness. One is through removing the outward dirt while the other is through removing ignorance and blindness [spiritual defects]. ووجه الاشتراك التطهير فان ما قاله عليه السلام لذريح فهو تطهير الباطن وما قاله لعبد الله بن سنان هو تطهير الظاهر والاول هو التأويل والباطن والثانى هو التفسير والظاهر Sayyid Hassan Khorasan: What the Imam said to Dharih is a purification of the inner self and what he said to Abdallah b. Sinan is a purification of the outer self. The former is an example of an esoteric Ta`wil while the latter is an example of an exoteric Tafsir. One of the most important obligations to be fulfilled during the pilgrimage is to meet the Imam. This is what the Ashab used to do, taking advantage of the crowds to seek out the Imam and ask him questions without any fear. Hajj season is also where the early Sufara used to meet up with the Last Imam.
  18. I hope you are all doing well So we've all read the Quran, but do we all really understand it? Do we deduce the right interpretation? I have begun to use al-mizan online and noticed how different my understanding was to that of a studied scholar. However, the website doesn't have the tafsir for all surahs. I prefer a book I can hold anyway, rather than a screen to read from. I can open a book whenever and wherever. Though depending on the price, I may be forced to read a pdf file. So I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions? Are these tafsirs precise, or just as accurate as can be? Hope to hear from you!
  19. Salaam, I've recently downloaded tafsir al-Tustari and before I delve into this 500-page book, I'm wondering if you have any thoughts about it.
  20. Naturally, the Holy Quran is the highest authority of Islam in all respects. However, if Quran leaves room for interpretation or does not explain something in full extent, which one comes next in hierachy: Tafsir (interpretation of Quran by Islamic scholars), or the Hadith (the record of the sayings of Prophet Muhammad [pbuh])? Which one is to be consulted first? Thanks a lot in advance!
  21. Assalamalekum brothers and sisters, Hope this post finds you all well. I have joined Shiachat very recently and will be so glad to participate in the threads regarding various topics.

  22. bismihi ta'ala assalamu alaykum, In case someone doesn't know, Tafsir Al-Mizan is a momentous exegetical work written by Allama Muhammad Hussain Al-Tabatabaei (ra), the great philosopher. His work consisted of 20 volumes which he wrote in Arabic, and the style of his Tafsir was Ijtihadi - a commentary of the Qur'an by the Qur'an, this work took him twenty years to complete. Syed Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi had taken the task of translating this work upon himself and had translated up until volume 12 (which corresponds with about volume 6 of the Arabic) and had begun translating volume 13 when he died about a decade ago. Since then there have been new projects which have started translating the work again but Syed Rizvi's work remained incomplete until his son, Syed Muhammad Rizvi, completed volume 13 (corresponding to the first half of volume 7 of the Arabic). It is being published at the moment however is available online (on the publisher's website) for downloading as a free PDF along with the rest of the book. http://www.wofis.com/Publications.aspx?bookID=8&partID=57 May Allah bless the souls of Allama Al-Tabatabaei and Syed Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi, and give a long life to Syed Muhammad Rizvi. wa assalam
