  2. Salam alaikum, Please read and share this well-written article titled "What is Ghuluw". It will give you a better idea what falls under Ghuluw and how countering it relates to the essence of Tawheed. https://www.al-islam.org/articles/what-ghuluw-seyyid-mohsen-rizvi Duas
  3. In al kafi, the book of belief and disbelief, Ch.4, H.4, there is a hadith (Note part in red): Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Ibn Azina, from Zurara, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far, said, ‘I asked him about the Words of Allah Mighty and Majestic [22:31] Being upright for Allah, not associating anything with Him. He said: ‘The uprightness [30:30] the nature made by Allah in which He has Made the people; there is no altering of Allah's creation. Allah Inclined them upon the recognition of it’. Zurara said, ‘And I asked him about the Words of Allah Mighty and Majestic [7:172] And when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their backs, their descendants, and made them testify against their own souls: Am I not your Lord? They said: Yes! – the Verse. He said: ‘Extracted from the back of Adam was his offspring to be up to the Day of Judgement. So they came out like the particles, and He Introduced Himself to them, and had it not been for that, not one of them would have recognised his Lord’..... The same narration is recorded by Sheikh saduq in kitab al-tawhid, Ch.53, H.9: Abu Ja`far al-Baqir (AS) said: I asked him (AS) about the Word of Allah, the Mighty and High; Being upright for Allah, not associating aught with Him, and about being upright. Thus, he (AS) replied, “It is the natural predisposition that Allah placed in human being. There is no change in His Creation.” Then he added, “Allah created them with the recognition.” Zurarah says: I asked him about the Word of Allah, the Mighty and High: And when your Lord brought forth from the children of Adam, from their backs. He (AS) explained, “He brought forth from Adam’s loins his progeny until the Day of Judgment. They all scattered before Him. He introduced them, and showed them His Creation. Had it not been so, no one would have recognized their Lord.” So as we can see, it seems like sheikh saduq distorted this hadith and made it less anthropomorphic. Thoughts?
  4. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم As we stated earlier, before we can answer the question “how can I know that God exists?” we must first ask the question “how do I know anything at all.” There are multiple ways that the intellect comes to know, and these modalities (or ways) of knowing are arranged hierarchically. I will go from the lowest form of knowledge to the highest – though this may seem unintuitive to the modern mind, which has been conditioned to see certainty as ordered in precisely the opposite direction. I will sort out these modern confusions as we proceed upon each level, inshaAllah. The lowest form of knowing, and the least certain is that of sense perception. “Huh? But I thought you had to see it to believe it?” you may ask. Ah, but you see sense perception deceives us all the time. We readily admit that. Sometimes we see things that aren’t really there, and sometimes what we see does not reflect reality. For instance, we perceive the earth as being flat, the sun as setting upon the horizon, the stars as being small, and if I were to put my finger in a glass of water it would appear to break due to the refraction of light. Your eyes deceive you Take a look at this clip around 12:30 where Dawkins himself says that if he were to see a direct sign of God – the heavens opening up and seeing the angels – he would still disbelieve in God. Instead, he would find it more probable that he were hallucinating, that David Blaine or some magician were playing a trick on him, or that aliens with some advanced technology could manipulate reality to make him think he were seeing what he were seeing. You can hear his own words here.... This article was originally published on themuslimtheist.com. Click here to continue reading.
  5. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Despite the repeated use of the phrase “there is no proof or evidence for the existence of God,” I would imagine most atheists, and indeed most people, are unaware that there is in fact a technical difference between evidence and proof. Fittingly, the distinction between proof and evidence was initially taught to me in an introductory evolutionary biology course by an ardent atheist professor during my first year of university. My professor used this distinction to justify why she would not be receiving objections to evolution in her class. (Literally, she said that we were not allowed to question evolution or present counter evidence during the lecture, and that she would not entertain it during her office hours.) It was the most bizarre and dogmatic moment I had in my entire education, and I say this as someone who was blessed to study theology in a seminary environment for a year. Contrary to popular opinion, the seminaries are far less dogmatic when it comes to foundational beliefs, as they permit questioning the existence of God and raising objections to the proofs offered. She argued that evolution was based upon good evidence, but could never attain the status of complete certainty. It was a probabilistic argument, like virtually all of science, rather than a demonstration, as in the case of mathematical proofs (and, as we shall see, metaphysical arguments.) I still vividly remember the slide used to showcase an example of rational certainty – it was that of a triangle with some lines and an accompanying trigonometric proof. Because evolution (along with all empirical science) could never attain 100% rational certainty, she argued that it was always possible to be a skeptic, to raise objections about inductive inferences which are probabilistic at best, or to posit alternative explanations that could explain the data, no matter how improbable. Oh the irony. If scientific atheists only applied their standards consistently, they would either deny science or accept God. We will see why more clearly later on when we explore the evidence for the existence of God. But there is neither here nor there. For now, what I want to do is just go over some basic concepts in reason in order to set the table for the coming arguments... This article was originally published on themuslimtheist.com.

  6. https://discord.gg/yGq5sU guys, there is a discord channel, which has a lot of Sunnis. They have a lot of questions to us, and there are not that many here. Please join in, and help to defend tawheed! HALP
  7. Note: This is not a shia sunni issue. So I am posting it here. And this is not to offend anyone. Focus on the message and its impact.
  8. Assalam O Alaikum, Below are the four main objections raised by disbelievers/polytheists against the Holy Prophet's message of Tawheed and the Life Hereafter. Unfortunately same misconcepts are part of the belief of some muslims, following the footsteps of polytheists. Allah rejected their 3 concepts completely while accepted only 1 but with strong condition. Allah says: Those to whom you call and worship besides Him (including Prophets, Ahlebait & all other pious servants of Allah) 1. Possess no any power over anything. 2. Nor have any partnership wth Allah in anything. 3. Nor any of them is helper of Allah in anything. 4. They will not intervene on behalf of another except for one Allah permits (Strong condition). One such exception is in Nisa 48, 116. SURAH SABA 22-23 قُلِ ادْعُوا الَّذِينَ زَعَمْتُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ ۖ لَا يَمْلِكُونَ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا لَهُمْ فِيهِمَا مِنْ شِرْكٍ وَمَا لَهُ مِنْهُمْ مِنْ ظَهِيرٍ O Prophet, say to the mushrikin: "Call on those deities whom you pray besides Allah - they do not have power over an atom's weight of anything in the heavens or earth, nor have they any share in either, nor is any of them a helper to Allah." وَلَا تَنْفَعُ الشَّفَاعَةُ عِنْدَهُ إِلَّا لِمَنْ أَذِنَ لَهُ ۚ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا فُزِّعَ عَنْ قُلُوبِهِمْ قَالُوا مَاذَا قَالَ رَبُّكُمْ ۖ قَالُوا الْحَقَّ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْكَبِيرُ No intercession before Allah can avail anyone except for the one for whom He permits. Until when terror will be removed from their hearts, they shall ask the intercessors: "What has your Rabb ordained?" They will answer: "The Truth," He is the Most High, the Great. That is, "Not to speak of owning something, or being a partner in the ownership of something, or being a helper of Allah in any way, there exists no one in the universe, who of his own accord may intercede for someone before Allah. You are involved in the misunderstanding that there arc' some beloved ones of God, or some such powerful personalities, who can force and press God to accept their intercession, whereas the fact is that no one will dare utter a word of recommendation there without Allah's permission. Only such a one will be able to make his submissions, who is permitted by Allah to do so, and will intercede for him alone for whom permission for intercession is granted. (To understand the distinction between the Islamic concept of intercession and the polytheistic concept, see Yunus: 3, 18; Hud: 76, 105; Ta Ha: 109; Al-Anbiya': 28; AI-Hajj: 76).
  9. This is a summary of why we need to follow the Prophet (Sawa) and the Ahlulbayt (As): "O Allah, introduce me to Yourself; because if You do not introduce me to Yourself then I would not know your messenger. O Allah, introduce me to Your Messenger, because if You do not introduce me to Your Messenger then I would not know Your Proof. O Allah, introduce me to Your Proof, because if You do not introduce me to Your Proof then I would be mislead about my religion." Reference: Al-Sadooq, Kamal al-deen wa Itmam al-Neama, p 342. Al-Kulaini, al-Kafi, 377/1.
  10. inshAllah I will try my best to keep this updated. If you want to keep up on the episodes just visit AhlulbaytTV on youtube.

  11. Correct me if I'm wrong, or if I am making the wrong conclusions, but after studying tawheed, it seems to me that most of us (muslims) are committing shirk.One thing that a lot of muslims do not want to except, is that someone who is a muslim and pronounces the shahada, and prays 5 times a day, and gives zakat, and makes hajj, and fasts in ramadhan, and recites quran can commit shirk through some of his beliefs and practices and be a mushrik(polytheist). "Ibrãhim was neither a Jew nor a Christian but he was a sincere ‘Muslim’ (one who submits to Allãh), and he was not one of the polytheists.” (3:67) The fact that Allah says that Ibraham(a.s.) was a muslim AND not one of the polytheists, proves that someone can worship and serve Allah, but yet be considered a mushrik, for that individual does not worship and serve Allah purely. Although his or her object or goal may be to worship Allah and be a good person, he or she may still commit shirk if it is not done in a way that is pure and proper; and as we know, shirk is the worst of sins. Today, in islam, many are committing shirk, the sunnis commit shirk by saying that the Quran is eternal and created by Allah, if this is so, then it implies that Allah’s speech is a part of Him and not a thing created. This is similar to how the Christians say that Jesus(a.s.) and the Holy Spirit, are not created and are in fact a part of Allah, and thus they(Christians) disbelieve by saying that Allah is a trinity. Furthermore, in islam, we believe that Jesus(a.s.) is the word of Allah(meaning that Allah said “be” and he was) and since the sunnis believe that Allah’s speech is eternal and not created, then they thus(unknowingly) assert that Jesus(a.s.) is a part of Allah just as the Christians do. The salafis have committed shirk by assigning physical characteristics to Allah, and saying that we will be able to see him in paradise, and that Allah sits on a literal throne above the heavens. This is shirk because it constricts him to space, while Allah is the creator of time and space. Many shia have committed shirk also by supplicating to the prophets and imams (pbut) instead of to Allah, the most high and the one possessing all of the power and strength whom the infallibles themselves worship and supplicate to(i.e. when some shia say “Ya Ali Maddad!” [Oh Ali help me!]) May Allah protect us from falsehood and error, and guide us, and forgive us for our shortcomings and what we do out of ignorance, and accept our intentions over our actions. the sunnis commit shirk by saying that the Quran is eternal and NOT* created by Allah. sorry for that misleading typo.
  12. If a married woman has relations with her husband's best friend, she makes arguments that it is OK we are JUST friends, I did not make him my husband. He fulfills my needs whenever I ask him, he takes care of me. And yes, he's very close to my husband, my husband can't refuse his request. The same thing mostly people do with Allah. They say it's OK to supplicate to others, prostrate, making Niyaz/ nazar etc as far as we did not call them God. While Allah clearly says, Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 186 ٢-١٨٦ ‌وَ‌إِ‌ذَ‌ا‌ سَأَلَكَ عِبَا‌دِي عَ‍‍نّ‍‍ِ‍ي فَإِنّ‍‍ِ‍ي قَ‍‍ر‍ِ‍ي‍‍بٌ ‌أُج‍‍ِ‍ي‍‍بُ ‌دَعْوَةَ ‌ال‍‍دّ‍َ‌اعِ ‌إِ‌ذَ‌ا‌ ‌دَع‍‍َ‍انِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُو‌ا‌ لِي ‌وَلْيُؤْمِنُو‌ا‌ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُد‍ُ‌ونَ “And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me, indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.” Surat Ghāfir (The Forgiver) - سورة غافرAnd your Lord says, "Call upon Me; I will respond to you." Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible. Prophets (as) supplicated to Allah, other people too, mentioned in Quran. For Allah, fornicator and polytheist are on same level. Surah Noor, verse 3 The fornicator does not marry except a [female] fornicator or polytheist, and none marries her except a fornicator or a polytheist, and that has been made unlawful to the believers.
