  1. In my opinion, Khomeini and the Islamic Republic have done more to destroy the true nature of the Shia faith than any group of people in history. Their compulsion of religion, e.g. hijab for women is specifically outlawed in the Holy Quran. They cling to power through murder and repeated human rights atrocities, again outlawed in the Holy Quran. The clerical class continue to enrich themselves while oppressing the people. Their books of fiqh are full of contradictions and much hypocrisy. These so-called marja only care to increase their power, while stealing the money of the people. They have pushed so many people away from our beautiful religion, and insha'Allah they will receive their due punishments and there will be a special place in jahannam for those who used the name of The Lord to further their personal agendas. You only need to visit Imam Ali's (peace upon him and his progeny) house in Kufa to witness the humility with which a true leader lived his life. I'm likely going to get banned for this. Which is probably a good thing anyway since I could easily be spending the time in ibadat. Ya Ali!
  2. Any human being with a soul should condemn and despise how the IDF treats Palestinians. But just as how we as Muslims know not all of us are barbaric and terrorist like animals, not all Israeli Jews want to kill and slaughter innocent Palestinians and want to control and world through a banking system, (some of you guys think that lol). Besides many American Muslims say free Palestine but live in America which is a gigantic version of Israel, that's hypocrisy. Lets be honest here, the Israeli Jews are going no where I think its time for both sides to sit down and compromise a two state solution. Also Many Palestinian men say on camera "death to the Jews lowest of creation" and many other similar slogans so they're not all that innocent. Also they suicide bomb killing innocent civilians which is absolutely haram. So stop saying death to Israel how would you like it if the Israeli people said on camera "death to Iran the cancer of the world" You guys would be furious and say this and that. So sit down for once and remember, Not all Muslims are terrorists (which is absolutely true) AND not all Israeli Jews want to kill and slaughter Palestinians (which is also absolutely true). Salam to all of you, inshallah there will be peace in the world
  3. @Salsabeel @Kazemi ٦_١٥٥ وَهَٰذَا كِتَٰبٌ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ مُبَارَكٌۭ فَٱتَّبِعُوهُ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ 006:155 And this Book that We have sent down is a blessed one; so follow it, and be Godwary so that you may receive [His] mercy. ٧_٢ كِتَٰبٌ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ فَلَا يَكُن فِى صَدْرِكَ حَرَجٌۭ مِّنْهُ لِتُنذِرَ بِهِۦ وَذِكْرَىٰ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ 007:002 [This is] a Book that has been sent down to you—so let there be no disquiet in your heart on its account that you may warn thereby—and as an admonition for the faithful. So Quran (the book) sent down is an admonition for the faithful and it should be followed. ٣٩_٥٥ وَٱتَّبِعُوٓا۟ أَحْسَنَ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُم مِّن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ بَغْتَةًۭ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ 039:055 Follow the best of what has been sent down to you from your Lord, before the punishment overtakes you suddenly while you are unaware.’ ١٣_١ بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ الٓمٓر ۚ تِلْكَ ءَايَٰتُ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ ۗ وَٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ٱلْحَقُّ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ 013:001 In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. Alif, Lam, Mim, Ra. These are the signs of the Book. That which has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth, but most people do not believe [in it]. Most people do not believe the truth that has been sent down by the Lord (Allah swt.) ٣٤_٦ وَيَرَى ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُوا۟ ٱلْعِلْمَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ هُوَ ٱلْحَقَّ وَيَهْدِىٓ إِلَىٰ صِرَٰطِ ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلْحَمِيدِ 034:006 Those who have been given knowledge see that what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth and [that] it guides to the path of the All-mighty, the All-laudable. ١٣_١٩ ۞ أَفَمَن يَعْلَمُ أَنَّمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ٱلْحَقُّ كَمَنْ هُوَ أَعْمَىٰٓ ۚ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُو۟لُوا۟ ٱلْأَلْبَٰبِ 013:019 Is someone who knows that what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth, like someone who is blind? Only those who possess intellect take admonition ٥_٦٧ ۞ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ ۖ وَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُۥ ۚ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِى ٱلْقَوْمَ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ 005:067 O Messenger! Communicate that which has been sent down to you from your Lord, and if you do not, you will not have communicated His message, and Allah shall protect you from the people. Indeed Allah does not guide the faithless lot. ٤٧_٣ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ ٱتَّبَعُوا۟ ٱلْبَٰطِلَ وَأَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّبَعُوا۟ ٱلْحَقَّ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ ٱللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ أَمْثَٰلَهُمْ 047:003 That is because the faithless follow falsehood, and the faithful follow the truth from their Lord. That is how Allah draws comparisons for mankind. Thus it provides sufficient evidence that the believers follow that has been revealed and sent to the prophet saaw at Ghadeer and others do not.

    What path do I chose?

    Salaam brothers/sisters, I would really appreciate it if i could get some perspective and unbiased opinions about the path I am about to take. I am 22 years old living in the U.K. and have recently graduated and currently undergoing a placement year as part of my development before I undertake my masters. I am at a stage in my life where I am more concerned with the state of my akirah rather than the dunya. Having said that it hasn't always been like this and I'm very much early on in my journey. I feel a sense of conflict in myself and my beliefs. I question at times what we've been taught and how authentic our views are not shia in particular but the entire Ummah.I want to search for the truth by studying Islam throughly but as any young Muslim my age, the world doesn't work like that. I'm afraid of not being able to support my mother and father, if I leave to study I may be gone for a very long time and all that time they may struggle. I also feel as if it may be unjust for me to rush something like this and jump in head first but I've come to realise if I follow through with my career 100% I could provide for my family and live a very normal life but I would never reach fufillment and fall into a deeper depression, my heart would forever be searching for answers. I want to make a difference, I want to help spread truth and bring people together. So I wanted some opinions and a discussion as to what you would advise me to do if you've had a similar experience, where do I start?

  6. Salam all, I have been reading a lot of posts here and have noticed that people, and not just here, make a lot of assumptions, generalizations and make claims without backing them up with references or evidences, especially in the sunni/shia forum, and hence end up with a lot of baseless beliefs. i think we would all agree that a historical narration, as opposed to a hadith, is not a source of religion, or is not hujjah, unless it has an authentic chain. the reason for that is that if the shi'a bring 10 historical accounts of the evils of "sahaba" or supporting any of their views, the sunnis can bring 100 historical accounts to back their view of islam. and hence i believe making claims or forming beliefs based on historical accounts with no sanad/chain, is not only incorrect, but would lead to useless arguments. if you disagree, then you disagree with the whole science of hadith, as we simply do not take a saying of the prophet pbuh without a chain or without authenticating the chain. some people say, well there MUST be a reason the accounts are there in history, like, there HAS to be SOME truth to them. to those people, i say: the same can be said about sunni historical accounts. there MUST be SOME truth to their accounts as well. but at the end of the day, both of us will be doing nothing more than assuming and wishful thinking. So, to summarize, if you are saying something about your religion, make sure that you would be willing to risk your akhirah for it and can back it up with evidence/reference, cause you never know what you might be held accountable for. and let this be a sort of notice for any of my future posts as well, that i will neither entertain nor respond to any claims/responses based on assumption/prejudice/emotion. someone wise once said, there is no place for emotions in the field of knowledge. salam.
  7. You see now in the poisonous Western Dictatorship countries, more and more things that are and should be considered abnormal are becoming normal. Euthanasia is one of them. A hot topic right now is the legalisation of assisted suicide (euthanasia) and when this happens, since the west is trying to destroy any moral values; as time goes by they will increase its use, and broaden its reason for use. For example, the use of euthanasia was for palliative patients, now, its crazily considered to people with a perceived "mental illness", after it will be legal for whatever reason and this is the progressive push for all the corruption in the west from the 'leaders' of bad intentions in this dajjalic system. Victims of this brainwash are told they do not have that long to live, or have the option to kill themselves if they wish. Medicine, or proper care was considered the only option for saving a life or controlling symptoms, never was it to intentionally murder someone. Patients that know someone cares about them (statistically) do not chose this option in legalised countries. However, others (since this society is so disconnected) have chosen it since being talked into it in some countries where they know they can do it, because a person is considered a "pain" and money waster for the health department #ResourcesOverHumanity. Is this what life is? The value of life is changing in the western definition, and it is time we know within ourselves the Islamic definition and be lanterns of guidance in such dark times. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِنْ نَسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۚ أَنْتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ "Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people." صدق الله العلي العظيم .الإمامُ الصّادقُ عليه السلام : مَن قَتَلَ نفسَه مُتَعمِّداً فهُو في نارِ جَهنَّمَ خالِداً فيها Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'Whoever intentionally kills himself will dwell in the Hellfire forever.' كتاب من لا يحضره الفقيه : 4 / 95 / 5163 al-Faqih, v. 4, p. 95, no. 5163 {Let's see, first homosexuality becoming legal, bad values being common within the youth, are all corrupt agendas for the western dictator governments. Think about it and be against it. As there was someone that once said, if you are not for it, nor with it, you are with it to some extent.] اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد وعجل فرجهم
  8. Salam warahma. My brothers, we need to speak truth about Aisha R. As a sunni, i have always respected and loved her. I recently learnt about the battle of jamal and just about all authentic narrations pertaining to it. To my knowledge, Aisha R went out with forces purely with the intention of reconciliation and reformation due to her status as Ummul Momineen. She did not question Ali Rs caliphate nor have the slightest intent of rebelling against him. She only went out thinking she could bring reform amongst people for Uthman Rs martyrdom. An agreement was reached between the army of Ali R and of Aisha, Talha and Zubayr R where both parties slept comfortably(based on the consensus of many historians, scholars and analysts). It was the people of fitna who deliberately consulted one another and ignited the fighting once more, causing both parties to think they betrayed each other. When Ali R recieved news of Zubayr Rs death, he cried as he saw his sword, saying 'how many times has this sword protected Rasoolallah?' Aisha R was not even on the battlefield the way people like Ammar Nakshawani(who i find very dishonest) make it out to be. She didnt even know that there was fighting going on until Ka'ab ibn sur told her to come out on her camel with the hope of stopping the fighting due to her status. As soon as Ka'ab R comes out, instructed by Aisha to judge by the Quran, the people of fitna realized that they will be exposed, and as a result shot arrows at Ka'ab R and went for the camel. Both Aisha and Ali R are yelling to stop the fighting and it is at this point that Aisha R realizes who the murderers of Uthman and the real evil people were. She prayed out loud saying Ya Allah curse the murderers of Uthman, the armies heard this and said it, and Ali R did the same upon hearing it When the battle ended, Ali R entered upon her and said Salam, asking how she is. She said Wsalam and said she is fine. Ali R said may Allah have mercy upon you and she said the same. Ali R found two men insulting Aisha ( much like extreme shias today). He ordered Qa'Qa R to lash them 100 times. When Aisha left Basra, Ali R walked out with her for miles, accompanying her bidding her farewell. Aisha spoke to the people of Basra saying 'oh children, some of us have transgressed against each other because of delaying and hastening(delaying to give bay'ah to Ali R, and rushing to avenge Uthman Rs death), so do not transgress one another. We are neither enemies to Ali nor is Ali an enemy to us. Wallahi there is nothing between me and Ali except what small quarrels ensues between a woman and her in laws. With me, he is the best of people' this is spoken publicly to the people of Basra Ali R responds by saying 'oh people wallahi she has spoken the truth, nothing was between us except the small quarrels between family members' he then followed with, and this my brothers is very important, 'she is the wife of your prophet in this life and the next' When Aisha was on her death bed, Abdullah ibn abbas entered and praised her, saying 'you are the wife of rasoolallah in this life and the next, and you are the one Allah proclaimed innocence of from the heavens'. Surely if Aisha was set to go to Hell fire (nauzubillah) as some shias say, wouldn't abdullah ibn abbas encourage her to repent? No, rather he praised her and said she is the wife of muhammad saw in this life and the next, as Ali R said. I urge you not to speak negatively of a woman Allah proclaimed innocence of in the Quran, a woman who played games and ate with the prophet pbuh, who would shower with him and who held his head in her lap when he passed away. My dear brothers, it is not as simple as some critiques make it out to be, i.e, aisha waging war vs Ali r. This is not true and we must be sincere. Please please please learn authentic narrations regarding this event, along with all of Aisha and Muhammad Saws beautiful marriage life.
  9. Introduction - I am Australian, a white Anglo-Saxon Christian. I have been researching Islam for about a year and a half and am very seriously considering converting to Shia Islam. I have come along away at first i was a bigot and growing up here in a climate of anti Islam Hysteria and the rise of Terrorism i cursed everything about Islam it's origins and its prophet things that i have now come to regret saying. In Australia we've been exposed from a young age right-wing channels trying to paint the world as 'Us V. Them' which obviously shaped my political views before i started researching myself into what the people who adhere to Islam believe. (Search 'A Current Affair Islam' and see what Australians are exposed to) At first trying to do complete an independent research i was bombarded with hateful messages from Anti-Islam websites or Wahhabi/Salafi websites but looking into this realized there are different sects and schools of thought within Islam. I found myself now researching into the divide of Sunni and Shia and the life of the Prophet in general. So what did i find and what was my conclusion after a year and half of research. I believe the companions who became the Caliphs after the Prophet did not follow the values and ethics taught by the prophet and the Quran. There are stories of violence and evils committed by both Umar and Abu Bakr which i have found appalling but Ali (First Imam/Fourth Caliph) I believe very much did follow the true Islamic values, his tolerance to religious minorities, kindness and high morals were in my opinion like those of the prophet and values taught by Islam and is the true successor to the prophet. I have respect for the Sunni muslims but today they have seem to have become corrupted with funds being shared around the world by the Saudi's, threatening the peace and at the same time supported by the U.S. and unfortunately my own country Australia. There is a real double standard in the western world, we are so hell bent on trying to take out Iran claiming they are a threat to world peace but it is truly the Saudi's who are killing and supporting horrific Salafi/Wahhabi militant groups. Question Time - 1) If i converted to Islam (Twelver) what would change when it comes to interactions with my christian families?, What becomes of Christmas, Funerals and other religious gathering adhering to Roman Catholicism. What can i or can't participate in? 2) My Family who i know for fact would be very accepting of me changing religions, they would accept me no matter what. My question is would God (I know only he can judge) based on Islamic beliefs accept my family into paradise if they're Catholics. It was my parents who knew i was disillusioned with my faith told me to go out and discover a new spiritual outlook on life. (I personally never thought it would be Islam ) and so i did and now we are here. 3) What evidence is there that Muhammad was a prophet, how can i be sure? These three questions that i know may seem 'amateur' to some Islamic experts but are vital questions to me in whether or not i will accept Islam. I hope you all are having a blessed day and i am excited to hear all your responses.
  10. Once upon a time I used to be quite strong in my beliefs but as the years have gone on, meeting new people and having new discussions has left me lost and aimless in terms of the 'path' that I follow. Of course I am Muslim - in that I believe in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, his Prophets (pbut), his angels and the Holy Book. However as of late I have really been struggling to find my feet either in the shia thought of school or sunni (originally raised as a shia) - there are some aspects which just don't sit right with me and I can feel my heart reject it - but then I worry that the truth is merely being rejected as a result of my own unworthiness. I fear for my afterlife as I know there are certain elements within shia'ism that, should you not adhere to, will cause you grief in the next world i.e. belief in Imam Mahdi. My heart feels heavy, confused and lost. I want to find the truth but I feel whenever I try to it's as if I am knocking my head on a wall. Does anyone have any advice or ever been in a similar situation?
  11. Any country that is not under the American government regime, is either under attack, framed, or in a war. Any country that is under the dictatorship may have an artificial boost of economy, and may have some sort of security(which is ironic as they make global terror and terrorists) - but all in exchange of a psychological & soft warfare declared on its citizens, by the billions of dollars governments spend, on order to keep citizens weak and asleep to the reality of the world. The way they achieved all these puppets through almost every government in the world is through colonialism. They did not split and divide the world for nothing - then leave it like that. They instilled corrupt governments for every place to inject their propaganda by the engineers - that seek how to change and shape the world and the people as they like with bad intentions. But of course they plan and Allah Swt plans and Allah Swt is the best of planners - as the Holy Quran al Kareem says. This is just one of the many reasons why Sayed Ali Khamenei (Ha) calls America "the great satan". ‏اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد Thank God we have a good leader like Ayatullah Khamenei (Ha).
  12. The truth behind Islam is that how we can understand the meaning of the truth based on Islamic view. Truth stands for the conformity between word and deed. It plays a great role in the lives of both the individuals and communities. Truth is the beauty of speech and ground of success. From this cause, the Islamic Sharia, in both the Quran and Sunna, glorified and urged telling truth: “Those who have brought the truth and those who have acknowledged it are those who have fear of Allah. They will receive whatever they want from their Lord. Thus is the reward of the righteous ones. (39:33-4)" “Allah will say, “This is the Day when the truthful ones will benefit from their truthfulness. (5:119)" “Believers! Have fear of Allah and always be friends with the truthful ones. (9:119)" The Prophet (s) said: “Truth is the adornment of speech." Imam as-Sadiq (a) said: “Do not be deceived by their very much offering of prayers and observance of fasting. In fact, prayers and fasting have become habits that they feel desolate if they omit them. You should test them by their truthfulness and fulfillment of trusts." “The deeds of the truthful are growing." This means that the deeds of the truthful are ongoing and their rewards are, too, growing. Thus, God accepts only the deeds of the pious ones. Truth, then, is one of the most significant characteristics of piety. 1. Az-Zumar (39:33-4)" 2. Al-Ma'ida (5:119)" 3. At-Tawba (9:119)"
  13. I've heard a couple of rumors from people and would like to confirm if it's true or no? Firstly my friend told me that Imam al Hussain a.s will reappear and live on this planet for 300 years. Are there any hadiths regarding this? Second, is it true that sayyeds will be punished and rewarded twice as much than non sayyeds? Thirdly, ok I'll make this to a question, who will kill the Mahdi? or how will he die?
  14. Salaam. To give some background, I have been brought up with Shia beliefs but recently, an encounter with another individual has led me to revisit these beliefs and its has made me realise, I actually don't know an awful lot about my own beliefs let alone the beliefs of others. I promised myself that I will look, discuss and seek to find that closest to the truth and to spot the discrepancies. I want to feel the peace that many believers do because they've found their path. But with little Muslim friends I have, my primary companion is the Internet. Since I've started researching into Shia'ism and Sunni'ism more, I feel I've become less practicing because I don't know what is right and wrong and this just pretty much had left me irritated with everything. Has anyone else felt or encountered a scenario like this and how do you deal with it? And please, no mean comments.
  15. (salam) I wrote this shortly after I converted to Shi3a Islam. I decided to share it, although it may not make any sense to you. It encompasses a few dreams I've had and some pain I went through losing my mother. It basically was a plea to finding the Truth, amidst having a severed heart from loss. It took me year's to get to this place, but I thought I'd share it with you. Is My Heart Ready? Beginning with cross-road’s, looking for Your Light Tainted with deception, grief, and false insight Where are You? Is my heart ready? Pain stricken soul, no one in sight Lies upon lies, wrong and right in my view, something is not right Is my heart ready? My mother’s feet are now gone, pain more prevalent, where are You? My father’s cries are strong, no one in sight, where are You? Happiness swept away, no more light in my soul, A beating heart with no pulse… I still love You…Where are You? No one in sight… Years of being half-stepped with no light, I am ready. Please come find me. I need You. Life-less, a dark road, which seems darker and darker by night, no one in sight, is my heart ready? I need You. I still love You. Where are You? My sorrow prevails, no one in sight, I beg to be with You. My loss takes over my vision… Show me the Truth! There is something missing…A man comes in form of a vision… A broken heart, I now must endure, the sight of your suffering brings me to fear How could they hurt you? Are you here to help? The pain inside begins to welt A piece of my heart is now flowing, the gates to my salvation are now knowing A pulse has arisen, its beat is weak, show me more, so that I shall seek! Is my heart ready? Two men are here, to show you cheer, to guide your Light, and decrease your fear Who are you? Why am I here? Your love for me is unconditional…my heart is flowing, tears for years of not knowing… The pain is lifting, her memory is here, but your love for me, no one can compare…Is my heart ready? Your neck is red with a shining light, tears of blood drenching in your might, Who are you? Why do I love you? A prisoner’s keep was at your feet, my pain is lifting, my love is transcending…show me the Light. They hurt you with no feeling, nothing but hate in their hearts, I love you. I am here. Is my heart ready? This is not your land, but here we stand, waiting for the upper-hand of Light… Mecca came forth, showing your worth, in all of my blinded-night’s, no one could see, it was You who was guiding me. It was You all along, heart beating so strong, my loss was a fraction of your light Your name was Allah, the most beautiful name, Where were You? Is my heart ready? His name was Mohammad, a Messenger of Light, where have you been? No one in sight… My heart bleeds Hussain, I feel you in my veins, who are you? I love you, I don’t know your name. Your name was Ahlul-Bayt, a name of my fate…The seal of my blindness. Though mother’s feet are now behind us, I give my heart, my pulse, it will forever beat for you. I now see the Light. You are here, You are in sight, by my mother’s flight, wings shining so bright… I will never let You out of my sight. (wasalam) AB313
  16. Salam 3aleykom Hi, I am new here. I am an ex-sunni before I move on to the topic I would like to say why i left sunni islam. I have always been a believer, I have never had a doubt about there being a God. I was never a religious person and my family is a very mixed and non religious one. Since I read the first few pages of the Quran, I knew these were not the words of a man, but someone divine and that Islam is the true religion. I also have been following world politics and am a deep thinker about issues, and this led me to connect almost every aspect in my life to what is true and false. It all is connected and makes perfect sense in politics, religion, science, art and culture. We have true and false. I came to realize politically that sunnis align themselves with the enemies of Islam. knowingly or not they are on the wrong side. And if you notice to what the zionists are targeting, it is mainly the Shiaa countries. Bahrain is not a threat as long as the KSA backed minority sunnis are in control. Iraq is gone. Yemen is almost gone. And the only reason they are after Syria now is because they want to stop the supply route to Hezbullah. So it makes sense that the target of the dajjal's system has to be the truth. Another reason i switched to Shiasm is because, I can compare today's corruption and lies, to history's and understand how it could have been the same way 1000 years ago. I guess sunni leadership has always been corrupt. today's sunni leadership are drunken homosexual pedophiles. They usurped the muslim nation's money and use it fund a fitna. They even demolished the obelisk pillar which represents satan in the hajj and erected a meaningless wall to throw pebbles at. now to the topic I wanted to talk about...... Can we pleaaaaaaaaase stop trying to convince the world "there is a God", "Islam is right", Shiasm is right, sunnis are wrong" I am tired of these useless debates. There is absolutely no point! Please understand only God and that person can change his mind, and you are wasting you breath and energy. If a person is sincerely asking then we could help him understand. But if someone is arguing, then he has no sincerity in understanding and is there just to fight you. As a person who recently and late in life has become religious, when I go online to learn more about Islam, almost every Sheikh I listen to talks about why Islam is right, or proofs that there is a God. I already believe in God, so all this convincing is pointless information for me. what I would like to learn is more about Islamic law for example, or how to battle anger and impatience. How to act in a society. I listen to Sheikh Ammar Nakshawani and other Sheikhs and I respect them to the upmost, but even they spend the majority of their lectures just trying to prove or convince us that Shiasm is the truth. As a person who already agrees 100% with that belief... Too much time in lectures are given to these topics and I am not learning anything. We need to stop trying to convince everyone and just start trying to learn how to be better muslims :) Thank you.
  17. Prophet Mohammad (pbuhahf) predictions in Sahih Sunni hadiths in multimedia. http://www.khanwadeabutalib.com/public/ilm/article/777/58#.U-AdTONdVA0
  18. In Saheeh Sunan Al-Nasai, Volume 2, page 268. The hadeeth has also been graded as Sahih(perfect) by Alamah Al-Albani who is your greatest scholar in the grading of hadeeth. Ibn Abbas narrates, "I heard Umar say, By Allah! I forbid you from mut'ah, even though it is in the book of Allah, and the Messenger of Allah did it also". Your best scholar in hadeeth says this is a perfect narration and proves a couple of things: -With all due respect, Umar did what he wanted even when he knew it wasn't part of the Quran and the Sunnah -You can rely on no traditions at all from Umar because this is a clear bid'ah -Mut'ah is in the Quran and the Prophet himself allowed it. It is graded saheeh by your best scholar of hadith so you cannot argue with the authenticity of it. What say you?
  19. أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم I seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan, the accursed one. In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد و عجل فرجهم و العن عدوهم My God, send peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, and hasten the reappearance of our Imam and curse their enemies Salam, Today's so-called 'scholars' do nothing but praise bakris/sunnis and not only condemn cursing the enemies of Allah, and actually say it is haraam... Astaghfrilillah. Even on this forum, the rules of the chat say to not curse the first 3 caliphs, and this is a site that calls itself 'Shia' Chat. "There will come a time upon my Nation in which nothing will remain of the Qur'an except its writing, and nothing of Islam except its name. They will be named by it while they are the furthest of mankind from it. Their mosques will be populated, while they are ruined of guidance. Their religious leaders of that time will be the worst religious leaders ever under the sky. Sedition and dissension will go out from them and to them will it return." - The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) The munafiqheen (hypocrites) among the Shia spend more time defending and praising bakris then they do defending Shia Islam and praising Allah. Some even get angered when they see the word 'Bakri' instead of 'Sunni', it's pathetic. One notorious example is Yasser Habib. I saw a thread recently on here, where people were acting as if he's going to burn in the deepest flames of hell for quoting ahadith from the Prophet (PBUH&HP) and Imams (AS) against barkism/sunnism. Meanwhile, these same people could care less that Bakri/Salafi scholars are constantly slandering Shia, calling for Shia to be massacred, saying Shia are Kaffir, etc. I've never really cared about Yasser Habibi and I've maybe ever watched two Yasser Habib videos ever, but after seeing how much he angers the munafiqheen among the Shia I say I support him simply to anger the shayateen and stand firm in the teachings of Islam inshaAllah. Al-Kafi: محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن محمد بن إسماعيل، عن أبي إسماعيل السراج، عن ابن مسكان، عن ثابت أبي سعيد قال: قال لي أبوعبدالله (عليه السلام): يا ثابت مالكم وللناس، كفوا عن الناس ولا تدعوا أحدا إلى أمركم، فوالله لو أن أهل السماء وأهل الارض اجتمعوا على أن يضلوا عبدا يريد الله هداه ما استطعاعوا، كفوا عن الناس ولا يقول أحدكم: أخي وابن عمي وجاري، فإن الله عزوجل إذا أراد بعبد خيرا طيب روحه، فلايسمع بمعروف إلا عرفه ولا بمنكر إلا أنكره، ثم يقذف الله في قلبه كلمة يجمع بها أمره Imam Al Sadiq (AS) said to Thabit "What have you got to do with the common people (non-Shias)? Stay away from them! Don't Call people towards amr (command/affair) of you people. Even if everyone wanted to misguide a man whom Allah wants to guide, they won't be able to do so. Stay away from common people (non-Shias) and don't think he's my brother, neighbor etc. When Allah wills good for someone He purifies his soul so when he hears the truth he accepts it and rejects falsehood. Allah puts a kalma in his heart that he stays steadfast on truth." I'm going to share Ayahs from Quran the hadiths I have so that whoever wishes can obtain knowledge, gain and increase Iman, and embrace Islam as well as ask for the guidance Allah inshaAllah. Please note that I had to break this down into several posts because there was so much text that the site kept crashing when I tried to post it all at once. Narrated `Abdullah bin Mas`ud: The Prophet (ﷺ) faced the Ka`ba and invoked evil on some people of Quraish, on Shaiba bin Rabi`a, `Utba bin Rabi`a, Al-Walid bin `Utba and Abu Jahl bin Hisham. I bear witness, by Allah, that I saw them all dead, putrefied by the sun as that day was a very hot day. حَدَّثَنِي عَمْرُو بْنُ خَالِدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا زُهَيْرٌ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ مَيْمُونٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ اسْتَقْبَلَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم الْكَعْبَةَ فَدَعَا عَلَى نَفَرٍ مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ، عَلَى شَيْبَةَ بْنِ رَبِيعَةَ، وَعُتْبَةَ بْنِ رَبِيعَةَ وَالْوَلِيدِ بْنِ عُتْبَةَ، وَأَبِي جَهْلِ بْنِ هِشَامٍ. فَأَشْهَدُ بِاللَّهِ لَقَدْ رَأَيْتُهُمْ صَرْعَى، قَدْ غَيَّرَتْهُمُ الشَّمْسُ، وَكَانَ يَوْمًا حَارًّا.

The two groups of Bani Sulaim called Ri'l and Dhakwan, appeared to them near a well called Bir Ma'una. The people (i.e. Al- Qurra) said, 'By Allah, we have not come to harm you, but we are passing by you on our way to do something for the Prophet.' But (the infidels) killed them. The Prophet (ﷺ) therefore invoked evil upon them for a month during the morning prayer. That was the beginning of Al Qunut and we used not to say Qunut before that." A man asked Anas about Al-Qunut, "Is it to be said after the Bowing (in the prayer) or after finishing the Recitation (i.e. before Bowing)?" Anas replied, "No, but (it is to be said) after finishing the Recitation." حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مَعْمَرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَارِثِ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ بَعَثَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم سَبْعِينَ رَجُلاً لِحَاجَةٍ يُقَالُ لَهُمُ الْقُرَّاءُ، فَعَرَضَ لَهُمْ حَيَّانِ مِنْ بَنِي سُلَيْمٍ رِعْلٌ وَذَكْوَانُ، عِنْدَ بِئْرٍ يُقَالُ لَهَا بِئْرُ مَعُونَةَ، فَقَالَ الْقَوْمُ وَاللَّهِ مَا إِيَّاكُمْ أَرَدْنَا، إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُجْتَازُونَ فِي حَاجَةٍ لِلنَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، فَقَتَلُوهُمْ فَدَعَا النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَلَيْهِمْ شَهْرًا فِي صَلاَةِ الْغَدَاةِ، وَذَلِكَ بَدْءُ الْقُنُوتِ وَمَا كُنَّا نَقْنُتُ. قَالَ عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ وَسَأَلَ رَجُلٌ أَنَسًا عَنِ الْقُنُوتِ أَبَعْدَ الرُّكُوعِ، أَوْ عِنْدَ فَرَاغٍ مِنَ الْقِرَاءَةِ قَالَ لاَ بَلْ عِنْدَ فَرَاغٍ مِنَ الْقِرَاءَةِ.

He therefore provided them with seventy men from the Ansar whom we used to call Al-Qurra' in their lifetime. They used to collect wood by daytime and pray at night. When they were at the well of Ma'una, the infidels killed them by betraying them. When this news reached the Prophet (ﷺ) , he said Al-Qunut for one month In the morning prayer, invoking evil upon some of the 'Arab tribes, upon Ril, Dhakwan, 'Usaiya and Bani Libyan. We used to read a verse of the Qur'an revealed in their connection, but later the verse was cancelled. It was: "convey to our people on our behalf the information that we have met our Lord, and He is pleased with us, and has made us pleased." (Anas bin Malik added:) Allah's Prophet said Qunut for one month in the morning prayer, invoking evil upon some of the 'Arab tribes (namely), Ril, Dhakwan, Usaiya, and Bani Libyan.

Curse on Iblis. ‘And surely on you is curse until the Day of Judgment.’ (Surah Hijr, 15:35) ‘And surely My curse is on you until the Day of Judgment.’ (Surah Suad, 38:78) Allah has cursed Iblis. (i.e. He has made him far from His Mercy.) When Iblis was cursed, he said to Allah, ‘I will certainly have a special share from Your servants.’ 2. Curse on the Disbelievers. a) General Curse ‘Surely Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared for them a burning fire.’ (Surah Ahzab, 33: 64) ‘Surely those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers, these it is on whom is the curse of Allah and the angels and men all.’ (Surah Baqarah, 2: 161) ‘Allah has promised the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women and the unbelievers the fire of hell to abide therein; it is enough for them. And Allah has cursed them and they shall have a lasting punishment.’ (Surah Tauba, 9:68) B ) Those who turned to disbelief after believing ‘How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their believing and (after) they had borne witness that the Apostle was true and clear arguments had come to them; and Allah does not guide the unjust people. (As for) these, their reward is that upon them is the curse of Allah and the angels and of men, all together.’ (Surah Ale Imran, 3:86-87) c) Disbelievers from the nation of Aad ‘And they were overtaken by curse in this world and on the resurrection day; now surely Aad disbelieved in their Lord; now surely, away with Aad, the people of Hud.’ (Surah Hud, 11:60) d) Disbelievers from the nation of Firaun ‘And they are overtaken by curse in this (world), and on the resurrection day, evil the gift which shall be given.’ (Surah Hud, 11:99) ‘And We caused a curse to follow them in this world, and on the day of resurrection they shall be of those made to appear hideous.’ (Surah Qasas, 28:42) e) Disbelievers from Bani Israel ‘And they say: Our hearts are covered. Nay, Allah has cursed them on account of their disbelief; so little it is that they believe. And when there came to them a Book from Allah verifying that which they have, and aforetime they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieve, but when there came to them (Prophet) that which they did not recognize, they disbelieved in him; so Allah’s curse is on the unbelievers.’ (Surah Baqarah, 2: 88-89) ‘But on account of their breaking their covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard; they altered the words from their places and they neglected a portion of what they were reminded of; and you shall always discover treachery in them excepting a few of them; so pardon them and turn away; surely Allah loves those who do good (to others).’ (Surah Maidah, 5:13) ‘Say: Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? (Worse is he) whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and more erring from the straight path.’ (Surah Maidah, 5:60) ‘Those who disbelieved from among the children of Israel were cursed by the tongue of Dawood and Isa, son of Marium; this was because they disobeyed and used to exceed the limit.’ (Surah Maidah, 5:78) ‘And they are overtaken by curse in this (world), and on the resurrection day, evil the gift which shall be given.’ (Surah Hud, 11:99) ‘And We caused a curse to follow them in this world, and on the day of resurrection they shall be of those made to appear hideous.’ (Surah Qasas, 28:42) f) Disbelievers from the People of the Book (Ahle KitaB ) ‘And when there came to them a Book from Allah verifying that which they have, and aforetime they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieve, but when there came to them (Prophet) that which they did not recognize, they disbelieved in him; so Allah’s curse is on the unbelievers.’ (Surah Baqarah, 2:89) ‘Of those who are Jews (there are those who) alter words from their places and say: We have heard and we disobey and: Hear, may you not be made to hear! and: Raina, distorting (the word) with their tongues and taunting about religion; and if they had said (instead): We have heard and we obey, and hearken, and Unzurna it would have been better for them and more upright; but Allah has cursed them on account of their unbelief, so they do not believe but a little. O you who have been given the Book! believe that which We have revealed, verifying what you have, before We alter faces then turn them on their backs, or curse them as We cursed the violators of the Sabbath, and the command of Allah shall be executed.’ (Surah Nisa, 4:46-47) ‘And the Jews say: The hand of Allah is tied up! Their hands shall be shackled and they shall be cursed for what they say. Nay, both His hands are spread out, He expends as He pleases; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord will certainly make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; and We have put enmity and hatred among them till the day of resurrection; whenever they kindle a fire for war Allah puts it out, and they strive to make mischief in the land; and Allah does not love the mischief-makers.’ (Surah Maidah, 5:64) 3. Curse on the Polytheists ‘And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them and evil is the resort.’ (Surah Fath, 48:6) 4. Curses on different groups among the People of the Book (Ahle KitaB ) a) Companions of Sabt ‘Say: Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? (Worse is he) whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and more erring from the straight path.’ (Surah Maidah, 5:60) Those who believe that the hands of Allah are tied ‘And the Jews say: The hand of Allah is tied up! Their hands shall be shackled and they shall be cursed for what they say. Nay, both His hands are spread out, He expends as He pleases; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord will certainly make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; and We have put enmity and hatred among them till the day of resurrection; whenever they kindle a fire for war Allah puts it out, and they strive to make mischief in the land; and Allah does not love the mischief-makers.’ (Surah Maidah, 5:64) 5. Curse on the Hypocrites ‘Allah has promised the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women and the unbelievers the fire of hell to abide therein; it is enough for them; and Allah has cursed them and they shall have lasting punishment.’ (Surah Taubah, 9:68) ‘And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them and evil is the resort.’ (Surah Fath, 48:6) ‘If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease and the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall most certainly set you over them, then they shall not be your neighbors in it but for a little while; Cursed: wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering.’ (Surah Ahzab, 33:60-61) The Accursed Tree ‘And when We said to you: Surely your Lord encompasses men; and We did not make the vision which We showed you but a trial for men and the cursed tree in the Quran as well; and We cause them to fear, but it only adds to their great inordinacy.’ (Surah Bani Israel, 17:60) As per the reliable traditions of the Ahle Sunnah and the Shias, ‘the accursed tree’ refers to Bani Ummayah. 6. Liars ‘But whoever disputes with you in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our near people and your near people, then let us be earnest in prayer, and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars.’ (Surah Ale Imran, 3:61) 7.Killing Intentionally ‘And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell; he shall abide in it, and Allah will send His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement.’ (Surah Nisa, 4:93) 8. Unjust ‘The day on which their excuse shall not benefit the unjust, and for them is curse and for them is the evil abode.’ (Surah Momin, 40:52) ‘And the dwellers of the garden will call out to the inmates of the fire: Surely we have found what our Lord promised us to be true; have you too found what your Lord promised to be true? They will say: Yes. Then a crier will cry out among them that the curse of Allah is on the unjust.’ (Surah A’ráaf, 7:44) ‘And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah? These shall be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses shall say: These are they who lied against their Lord. Now surely the curse of Allah is on the unjust.’ (Surah Hud, 11:18) 9. Accusing Chaste Women ‘And the fifth (time) that the curse of Allah be on him if he is one of the liars.’ (Surah Noor, 24:7) ‘Surely those who accuse chaste believing women, unaware (of the evil), are cursed in this world and the hereafter, and they shall have a grievous chastisement.’ (Surah Noor, 24:23) 10. Breakers of the Covenant ‘And those who break the covenant of Allah after its confirmation and cut asunder that which Allah has ordered to be joined and make mischief in the land; (as for) those, upon them shall be curse and they shall have the evil (issue) of the abode.’ (Surah Raad, 13:25) 11. One who forges a lie against Allah ‘And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah? These shall be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses shall say: These are they who lied against their Lord. Now surely the curse of Allah is on the unjust.’ (Surah Hud, 11:18) 12. One who conceals the clear proofs of Allah ‘Surely those who conceal the clear proofs and the guidance that We revealed after We made it clear in the Book for men, these it is whom Allah shall curse, and those who curse shall curse them (too).’ (Surah Baqarah, 2:159) 13. Those who hold the Jews superior to the Believers ‘Have you not seen those to whom a portion of the Book has been given? They believe in idols and false deities and say of those who disbelieve: These are better guided in the path than those who believe. Those are they whom Allah has cursed, and whomever Allah curses you shall not find any helper for him.’ (Surah Nisa, 4:51-52) 14. Those who spread mischief and cut off relations of Kin ‘But if you held command, you were sure to make mischief in the land and cut off the ties of kinship! Those it is whom Allah has cursed so He has made them deaf and blinded their eyes.’ (Surah Muhammad, 47:22-23) Curse from Shia Sources: Cursing Abu Bakr And Umar: 1) Hanan Ibn Sadir narrated: I asked Imam al-Baqir (ع) about these two (That is Umar and AbuBakr). He(ع) replied: "O Aba al-Fadhl! Do not ask me about them for, by Allah, non among us (Ahlul-Bayt) would die except that he is displeased with those two. No day passes to us except that we are angry with them. Indeed, they oppressed us and denied our rights and they were the first and foremost people who imposed themselves over us and opened the stream of injustice against us that does not stop until our Qa'im rises... By Allah! No affliction was set up against us and no trouble faced us Ahlul-Bayt except that those two founded its root. Thus upon those two 'are the curse of Allah and the angels and people all (2:161).'" Ref : Al-Kafi, v8, p245, Hadith No 340 Bihar al-Anwar, v30, p269, Hadith No 138 Ta'wil al-Ayat al-Dhahira, p128, Hadith No 4 2) Allah said in Holy Quran: That they carry, on the Day of Judgment, their own burdens in full, and also of the burdens of people whom they misled without knowledge. Alas, how grievous the burdens they will bear! (16:25). On the commentary of the above verse, Ali Ibn Ibrahim mentioned in his Tafsir: Imam Jafar Sadiq (ع) said: "By Allah!

Ref : Biharul Anwar V 101 Pg 296 H 1 , Zyarat-e-Ashura. Note : There is a point in the above zyarat. The Aal of Abu sufyan and ziyad is cursed since they are satisfied with the actions of their forefathers . Therefore in the same zyarat it is as follows : “And anybody who is satisfied with the actions of their Qawm(tribe) , they are included in their deeds” . Hence those people who are satisfied with the deeds of the enemies of Ahlulbayt(ع) are worthy of being cursed.

Grievous indeed it is that I was unable to respond soon enough to your cry for help, so that by the time I could reach you it was too late and you were already martyred. Truly, this is a day whereon the killers are many and the helpers are few." Therefore O Qasim ibnul Hassan, may the Lord join us with you on the Day of Resurrection and make you home our resort; and may He curse your murderer, Umar bin Sa'd bin Nufail al-Azdi and send the culprit to hell and punish him with a painful torment. 11.

Imam Ahmed in proof of (sending Lanah upon Yazid) mentioned these verses:Would ye then, if ye were given the command, work corruption in the land and sever your ties of kinship? Such are the men whom Allah has cursed…(47:22-23), So could there be a greater fitnah than the actions committed by Yazid?

Ref: Sharh Fiqh Akber Pg 43. 2) Uthman refrained to give Aisha any money by reminding her that she was one of those who testified and encouraged Abu-Bakr to refrain to pay the share of inheritance of Fatimah (ع). So if Fatimah does not have any share of inheritance, then why should she? Aisha became extremely angry at Uthman, and came out saying: "Kill this old fool (Na'thal), for he is unbeliever." Sunni references: - History of Ibn Athir, v3, p206 - Lisan al-Arab, v14, p141 - al-Iqd al-Farid, v4, p290 - Sharh Ibn Abi al-Hadid, v16, pp 220-223 3) Abu Bakr, taunting Ali (ع) from the pulpit of the mosque, said: "He (Ali) is a fox, the evidence of which is its tail. He creates disturbances, minimizes the importance of big disturbances, and incites people to make an uproar. He seeks help from the weak and accepts assistance from women. He is like Ummi't-Tahal (an adulteress in the days of ignorance, as explained by Ibn Abi'l-Hadid) with whom the men of his family were fond of committing adultery." Ref: Sharhe Nahju'l-Balagha, Volume IV, page 80. Muawiyah Instituting the curse of Imam Ali (ع) Muawiyah not only fought Imam Ali, he cursed Imam Ali as well. Furthermore, he did force/make everybody to curse Ali (ع). To prove it, we begin with Sahih Muslim: 4) Narrated Sa'd Ibn Abi Waqqas: Muawiyah, the son of Abu Sufyan, give order to Sa'd, and told him: "What prevents you that you are refraining from cursing Abu Turab (nickname of Ali)?" Sa'd replied: "Don't you remember that the Prophet said three things about (the virtue of) Ali? So I will never curse Ali." Reference: Sahih Muslim, Chapter of Virtues of Companions, Section of virtues of Ali, Arabic, v4, p1871, Tradition No 32. For the English version of Sahih Muslim, see Chapter CMXCVI, p1284,Tradition No 5916 The above tradition, by the way, indicates that Muawiyah was surprised why Sa'd does not follow his order of cursing Ali, like others do. This shows that cursing Ali was a habit (Sunnah) for people at that time. Who made this Sunnah? Was it Ali, or those who fought him? Now, who fought against Ali? Wasn't he Muawiyah? So this implies that Muawiyah did innovate that habit (cursing Ali as Sunnah). 5) It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hazim that: The Governor of Medina who was one of the members of the house of Marwan called Sahl Ibn Sa'd, and ordered him to curse Ali but Sahl refused to do so. The governor said: "If you don't want to curse Ali, just say God curse Abu Turab (the nickname of Ali)." Sahl said: "Ali did not like any name for himself better than Abu Turab, and Ali used to become very happy when somebody would call him Abu Turab." Reference: Sahih Muslim, Chapter of Virtues of Companions, Section of Virtues of Ali, Arabic version, v4, p1874, Tradition No 38. 6) Cursing Imam Ali (ع) was an order from the beginning of Muawiyah's reign for 65 years. He was Umar Ibn Abdil Aziz (may Allah be easy with him) who canceled this order after more than half a century. Some historians even believe that the Umayyah descendants themselves killed (poisoned) Umar Ibn Abdil Aziz, because he changed their Sunnah, one of which was cursing Ali. Ref : Sunni book entitled "History of the Saracens," by Amir Ali, Chapter X, pg 126-127. 7) One of the ugliest innovations that started during the reign of Muawiyah was that Muawiyah himself, and through his order to his Governors, they used to insult Imam Ali (ع) during the Sermons in the Mosques. This was even done on the pulpit of the mosque of the Prophet in Medina in front of the grave of the Prophet Muhammad (May Allah bless him and his Progeny),so that even the dearest Companions of the Prophet (PBUH&HP), and Imam Ali (ع), his family and his near relatives used to hear these swears with their ears. Sunni references : - History of al-Tabari, V4, Pg 188 - History of Ibn Kathir, V3, Pg234; V4, Pg154 - al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah, V8, Pg259; V9, Pg80 8) On insulting Ali Ibn Abi Talib and cursing him during the Umayah period starting in Muawiyah's reign, it is reported that: "Ali Ibn Abi Talib (ع) was cursed on the pulpits (manabir) of the east and west...", during the time of Muawiyah. Reference: Mu'jam al-Buldan, al-Hamawi, V5, Pg 38. 9)Umme Salama(swt), the wife of the Prophet (PBUH&HP) wrote to Muawiyah: "...You are cursing Allah and His messenger on your minbar,and that is because you are cursing Ali Ibn Abi Talib and whomever loves him, and I am a witness that Allah and His messenger loved him." But no one paid any attention to what she said. Reference: al-Aqd al-Fareed, v2, p300 10) "That it was in the days of Bani Umayyah, more than seventy thousand minbar (in mosques) upon which they cursed Ali Ibn Abi-Talib, in some of what Muawiyah made a Sunnah for them." References: - Rabeea' al-Abrar, al-Zamakhshari - al-Hafidh Jalaluddin al-Suyuti 11) After his death, Muawiyah the son of Yazid, gathered the people on a well known day, he stood in them preaching, he said: "My grandfather Muawiyah stripped the command from those who deserved it, and from one who is more justified of it, for his relation to the Messenger of Allah and his being first in Islam, and that is Ali Ibn Abi Talib, he (Muawiyah) took over it by your help as you are fully aware." "Then following it my father Yazid wore the command after him, and he did not deserve it. He quarreled with the son of the daughter of the Messenger of Allah, and by that he shortened his own life... He rode his whim and hope left him behind." Then he cried and continued: "Surely, the greatest problems of us is our knowledge of his bad behavior and his awful ending, and that he killed the progeny (Itrah) of the Messenger of Allah, and he permitted drinking alcohol, and he fought in the sanctuary of Mecca, and destroyed the Ka'ba." "And I am not the one who is dressing up for your command, nor the one to be responsible for your followers... You choose for yourselves..!!"

He (Ahmad Ibn Hanbal) answered: "Know that Ali had a lot of enemies who tried hard to find a fault in him, but they found it not. As such, they joined a man (i.e.Muawiyah) who verily fought him battled him, and they praised him (Muawiyah) extravagantly setting a snare for themselves for him.

After praising and glorifying God, he said: "Now then, indeed a forbearing person has been admonished in the past... The wise might do what you want without instruction. Although I have wanted to advise you about many things, I left them alone,trusting in your discernment of what pleases me, what helps my regime and what sets my subjects [raiyyah] on the right path. I would continue to advise you about a quality of yours- do not refrain from abusing Ali and criticizing him, not from asking God's mercy upon Uthman and His forgiveness for him. Continue to shame the companions of Ali, keep at a distance, and don't listen to them. Praise the faction of Uthman, bring them near, and listen to them." Reference: History of Tabari, English version, events of year 51 AH, Execution of Hujr Ibn Adi, v18, pp 122-123 14) The Messenger of Muawiyah then came to them with orders to release six and to kill eight, telling them: We have been ordered to let you disavow Ali and curse him. If you do so, we shall release you, and if you refuse, we shall kill you. Reference: History of Tabari, English version, events of year 51 AH, V18, P149. 15) Holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) said: "Whoever curses (or verbally abuses) Ali, he has, in fact, cursed me, and whoever has cursed me, he has cursed Allah, and whoever has cursed Allah, then Allah will throw him into the Hell-fire." Sunni reference: Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v6, p33 Thus Muawiyah and his associates were, in fact, cursing the Prophet (PBUH&HP), and by cursing the Prophet, they were cursing Allah (SWT), and by cursing Allah, they shall enter the hellfire! By Allah, they will be asked to account for what they've said! That is a promise by Allah (SWT) which He shall not break! "And do not think Allah to be heedless of what the unjust do; He only respites them upto a day on which the eyes will be fixedly open." (Quran 14:42) Incidents of Sahaba cursing each other: (i) Some Incidents from Sahih Bukhari Narrated ‘Urwa from ‘Aisha: The wives of Allah’s Apostle were in two groups. One group consisted of ‘Aisha, Hafsa, Safiyya and Sauda; and the other group consisted of Um Salama and the other wives of Allah’s Apostle. The Muslims knew that Allah’s Apostle loved ‘Aisha, so if any of them had a gift and wished to give to Allah’s Apostle, he would delay it, till Allah’s Apostle had come to ‘Aisha’s home and then he would send his gift to Allah’s Apostle in her home. The group of Um Salama discussed the matter together and decided that Um Salama should request Allah’s Apostle to tell the people to send their gifts to him in whatever wife’s house he was. Um Salama told Allah’s Apostle of what they had said, but he did not reply. Then they (those wives) asked Um Salama about it. She said, “He did not say anything to me.” They asked her to talk to him again. She talked to him again when she met him on her day, but he gave no reply. When they asked her, she replied that he had given no reply. They said to her, “Talk to him till he gives you a reply.” When it was her turn, she talked to him again. He then said to her, “Do not hurt me regarding Aisha, as the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha.” On that Um Salama said, “I repent to Allah for hurting you.” Then the group of Um Salama called Fatima, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle and sent her to Allah’s Apostle to say to him, “Your wives request to treat them and the daughter of Abu Bakr on equal terms.” Then Fatima conveyed the message to him. The Prophet said, “O my daughter! Don’t you love whom I love?” She replied in the affirmative and returned and told them of the situation. They requested her to go to him again but she refused. They then sent Zainab bint Jahsh who went to him and used harsh words saying, “Your wives request you to treat them and the daughter of Ibn Abu Quhafa on equal terms.” On that she raised her voice and abused ‘Aisha to her face so much so that Allah’s Apostle looked at ‘Aisha to see whether she would retort. ‘Aisha started replying to Zainab till she silenced her. The Prophet then looked at ‘Aisha and said, “She is really the daughter of Abu Bakr.” Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 47, Number 755 Narrated Abu Salih As-Samman: I saw Abu Said Al-Khudri praying on a Friday, behind something which acted as a Sutra. A young man from Bani Abi Mu’ait, wanted to pass in front of him, but Abu Said repulsed him with a push on his chest. Finding no alternative he again tried to pass but Abu Said pushed him with a greater force. The young man (a Tabai) abused Abu Said(a Sahabi) and went to Marwan and lodged a complaint against Abu Said and Abu Said followed the young man to Marwan who asked him, “O Abu Said! What has happened between you and the son of your brother?” Abu Sa’id said to him, “I heard the Prophet saying, ‘If anybody amongst you is praying behind something as a Sutra and somebody tries to pass in front of him, then he should repulse him and if he refuses, he should use force against him for he is a satan.’” Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 488 Note: The word of “Tabai” in above parenthesis i.e. in (The young man (a Tabai) abused Abu Said) are not ours but of Salafi Translator of Sahih Bukhari Mohsin Khan. Narrated Anas: It was said to the Prophet “Would that you see Abdullah bin Ubai.” So, the Prophet went to him, riding a donkey, and the Muslims accompanied him, walking on salty barren land. When the Prophet reached ‘Abdullah bin Ubai, the latter said, “Keep away from me! By Allah, the bad smell of your donkey has harmed me.” On that an Ansari man said (to ‘Abdullah), “By Allah! The smell of the donkey of Allah’s Apostle is better than your smell.” On that a man from ‘Abdullah’s tribe got angry for ‘Abdullah’s sake, and the two men abused each other which caused the friends of the two men to get angry, and the two groups started fighting with sticks, shoes and hands. We were informed that the following Divine Verse was revealed (in this concern):– “And if two groups of Believers fall to fighting then, make peace between them.” (49.9) Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 49, Number 856 More Sunni References: Sahih Muslim Vol. 2, page 110, published in Delhi.

She said, “By Allah, I do not abuse him except because of you.” I asked her, “Concerning what of my affairs?” So she disclosed the whole story to me… Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 281 Also Urwa and Hisham’s father narrated that: Narrated ‘Urwa: I started abusing Hassan in front of ‘Aisha, whereupon she said. “Don’t abuse him, for he used to defend the Prophet (with his poetry).” Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 731 Narrated Hisham’s father: I started abusing Hassan in front of ‘Aisha. She said, “Do not abuse him as he used to defend Allah’s Apostle (against the infidels). ‘Aisha added, “Once Hassan took the permission from the Prophet to say poetic verses against the infidels. On that the Prophet said, ‘How will you exclude my forefathers (from that)? Hassan replied, ‘I will take you out of them as one takes a hair out of the dough.” Hisham’s father added, “I abused Hassan as he was one of those who spoke against ‘Aisha.” Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 466 Narrated Abu ‘Uthman: ‘Abdur Rahman bin Abi Bakr said, “The Suffa Companions were poor people and the Prophet said, ‘Whoever has food for two persons should take a third one from them (Suffa companions). And whosoever has food for four persons he should take one or two from them’ Abu Bakr took three men and the Prophet took ten of them.” ‘Abdur Rahman added, my father my mother and I were there (in the house). (The sub-narrator is in doubt whether ‘Abdur Rahman also said, ‘My wife and our servant who was common for both my house and Abu Bakr’s house). Abu Bakr took his supper with the Prophet and remained there till the ‘Isha’ prayer was offered. Abu Bakr went back and stayed with the Prophet till the Prophet took his meal and then Abu Bakr returned to his house after a long portion of the night had passed. Abu Bakr’s wife said, ‘What detained you from your guests (or guest)?’ He said, ‘Have you not served them yet?’ She said, ‘They refused to eat until you come. The food was served for them but they refused.” ‘Abdur Rahman added, “I went away and hid myself (being afraid of Abu Bakr) and in the meantime he (Abu Bakr) called me, ‘O Ghunthar (a harsh word)!’ and also called me bad names and abused me and then said (to his family), ‘Eat. No welcome for you.’ Then (the supper was served). Abu Bakr took an oath that he would not eat that food. The narrator added: By Allah, whenever any one of us (myself and the guests of Suffa companions) took anything from the food, it increased from underneath. We all ate to our fill and the food was more than it was before its serving. Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 10, Number 576 Narrated ‘Anbasa bin Said: Abu Huraira came to the Prophet and asked him (for a share from the Khaibar booty). On that, one of the sons of Said bin Al-’As said to him, “O Allah’s Apostle! Do not give him.” Abu Huraira then said (to the Prophet ) “This is the murderer of Ibn Qauqal.” Sa’id’s son said, “How strange! A guinea pig coming from Qadum Ad-Dan!” Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle sent Aban from Medina to Najd as the commander of a Sariya. Aban and his companions came to the Prophet at Khaibar after the Prophet had conquered it, and the reins of their horses were made of the fire of date palm trees. I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Do not give them a share of the booty.” on, that, Aban said (to me), “Strange! You suggest such a thing though you are what you are, O guinea pig coming down from the top of Ad-Dal (a lotus tree)! “On that the Prophet said, “O Aban, sit down ! ” and did not give them any share. Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 544 Narrated Said: Aban bin Said came to the Prophet and greeted him. Abu Huraira said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This (Aban) is the murderer of the Ibn Qauqal.” (On hearing that), Aban said to Abu Huraira, “How strange your saying is! You, a guinea pig, descending from Qadum Dan, blaming me for (killing) a person whom Allah favored (with martyrdom) with my hand, and whom He forbade to degrade me with his hand.’ Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 545 Narrated ‘Ubaidullah bin Abi Rafi: …Umar said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Allow me to chop off the head of this hypocrite.” Allah’s Apostle said, “Hatib participated in the battle of Badr, and who knows, perhaps Allah has already looked at the Badr warriors and said, ‘Do whatever you like, for I have forgiven you.”Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 251 More Sunni References: Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 314 Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 319 Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 572 Sahih Muslim, Book 031, Number 6087Narrated Aisha: ..Sad bin Mu’adh got up and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! by Allah, I will relieve you from him. If that man is from the tribe of the Aus, then we will chop his head off, and if he is from our brothers, the Khazraj, then order us, and we will fulfill your order.’ On that Sad bin ‘Ubada, the chief of the Khazraj and before this incident, he had been a pious man, got up, motivated by his zeal for his tribe and said, ‘By Allah, you have told a lie; you cannot kill him, and you will never be able to kill him.’ On that Usaid bin Al-Hadir got up and said (to Sad bin ‘Ubada), ‘By Allah! you are a liar. By Allah, we will kill him; and you are a hypocrite, defending the hypocrites.’ On this the two tribes of Aus and Khazraj got excited and were about to fight each other, while Allah’s Apostle was standing on the pulpit. He got down and quietened them till they became silent and he kept quiet. On that day I kept on weeping so much so that neither did my tears stop, nor could I sleep. Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 48, Number 829 More Sunni References: Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 462 Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 274Narrated Al-Ma’rur: At Ar-Rabadha I met Abu Dhar who was wearing a cloak, and his slave, too, was wearing a similar one. I asked about the reason for it. He replied, “I abused a person by calling his mother with bad names.” The Prophet said to me, ‘O Abu Dhar! Did you abuse him by calling his mother with bad names You still have some characteristics of ignorance. Your slaves are your brothers and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. Do not ask them (slaves) to do things beyond their capacity (power) and if you do so, then help them.’” Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 29 (ii) Some of the Incidents from Sahih Muslim Sulaiman b. Surad reported that two persons abused each other in the presence of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and the eyes of one of them became red as embers and the veins of his neck were swollen. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I know of a wording, if he were to utter that, his fit of rage (would be no more and that wording is): I seek refuge with Allah from Satan the accursed. The person said: Do you find any madness in me? Ibn al-’Ala’ said: Do you see it? And he made no mention of the person. Sahih Muslim, Book 032, Number 6316 ‘Alqama b. Wa’il reported on the authority of his-father: While I was sitting in the company of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him), a person came there dragging another one with the help of a strap and said: Allah’s Messenger, this man has killed my brother. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said to him: Did you kill him? And the other man said: (In case he did not make a confession of this, I shall brine, a witness against him). He (the murderer) said: Yes, I have killed him. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Why did you kill him? He said: I and he won striking down the leaves of a tree and he abused me and enraged me, and to I struck his head with an axe and killed him, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Have you anything with you to pay blood-wit on your behalf? He said: I do not possess any property but this robe of mine and this axe of mine. He (the Holy, Prophet) said: Do you think your people will pay ransom for you? He said: I am more insignificant among my people than this (that I would not be able to get this benefit from my tribe). He (the Holy Prophet) threw the strap towards him (the claimant of the blood-wit) saying: Take away your man. The man took him away, and as he returned, Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: If he kills him, he will be like him. He returned and said: Allah’s Messenger, it has reached me that you have said that” If he killed him, he would be like him.” I caught hold of him according to your command, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Don’t you like that he should take upon him (the burden) of your sin and the sin of your companion (your brother)? He said: Allah’s Apostle, why not? The Messenger of Allah (may peace be. upon him) said: If it is so, then let it be. He threw away the strap (around the offender) and set him free. Sahih Muslim, Book 016, Number 4164 Note: The first Sahabi (the killer) also made the same excuse, which Nasibis make when they kill shias (i.e. he killed while other person abused him). Did Rasool Allah [saww] accept this excuse and left him free? ‘Abdullah b. Buraida reported on the authority of his father that Ma’iz b. Malik al-Aslami came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: Allah’s Messenger, I have wronged myself; I have committed adultery and I earnestly desire that you should purify me. He turned him away. On the following day, he (Ma’iz) again came to him and said: Allah’s Messenger, I have committed adultery. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) turned him away for the second time, and sent him to his people saying: Do you know if there is anything wrong with his mind. They denied of any such thing in him and said: We do not know him but as a wise good man among us, so far as we can judge. He (Ma’iz) came for the third time, and he (the Holy Prophet) sent him as he had done before. He asked about him and they informed him that there was nothing wrong with him or with his mind. When it was the fourth time, a ditch was dug for him and he (the Holy Prophet) pronounced judg- ment about him and he wis stoned. He (the narrator) said: There came to him (the Holy Prophet) a woman from Ghamid and said: Allah’s Messenger, I have committed adultery, so purify me. He (the Holy Prophet) turned her away. On the following day she said: Allah’s Messenger, Why do you turn me away? Perhaps, you turn me away as you turned away Ma’iz. By Allah, I have become pregnant. He said: Well, if you insist upon it, then go away until you give birth to (the child). When she was delivered she came with the child (wrapped) in a rag and said: Here is the child whom I have given birth to. He said: Go away and suckle him until you wean him. When she had weaned him, she came to him (the Holy Prophet) with the child who was holding a piece of bread in his hand. She said: Allah’s Apostle, here is he as I have weaned him and he eats food. He (the Holy Prophet) entrusted the child to one of the Muslims and then pronounced punishment. And she was put in a ditch up to her chest and he commanded people and they stoned her. Khalid b Walid came forward with a stone which he flung at her head and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and so he abused her. Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) heard his (Khalid’s) curse that he had huried upon her. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Khalid, be gentle. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, she has made such a repentance that even if a wrongful tax-collector were to repent, he would have been forgiven. Then giving command regarding her, he prayed over her and she was buried. Sahih Muslim, Book 017, Number 4206 Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: Ata’ said: The quilt of Aisha was stolen. She began to curse the person who had stolen it. The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) began to tell her: Do not lighten him. Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 1492 Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with him) reported: This news reached ‘Umar that Samura had sold wine, whereupon he said: May Allah destroy Samura; does he not know that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said:” Let there be the curse of Allah upon the Jews that fat was declared forbidden for them, but they melted it and then sold it”? Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3842 Sa’id b. Zaid b. ‘Amr b. Nufail (Allah be pleased with them) reported that Arwi (bint Uwais) disputed with him (in regard to a part of the land) of his hodse. He said: Leave it and take off your claim from it, for I heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: He who took a span of land without his right would be made to wear around his neck seven earths on the Day of Resurrection. He (Sa’id b. Zaid) said: O Allah, make her blind if she has told a lie and make her grave in her house. He (the narrator) said: I saw her blind groping (her way) by touching the walls and saying: The curse of Sa’id b. Zaid has hit me. And it so happened that as she was walking in her house, she passed by a well in her house and fell therein and that be- came her grave. Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3921 Abu Mas’ud al-Badri reported: I was beating my slave with a whip when I heard a voice behind me: Understand, Abu Masud; but I did not recognise the voice due to intense anger. He (Abu Mas’ud) reported: As he came near me (I found) that he was the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and he was saying: Bear in mind, Abu Mas’ud; bear in mind. Abu Mas’ud. He (Aba Maslad) said: threw the whip from my hand. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Bear in mind, Abu Mas’ud; verily Allah has more dominance upon you than you have upon your slave. I (then) said: I would never beat my servant in future. Sahih Muslim, Book 015, Number 4086 This hadith has been narrated. on the authority of Shu’ba with the same chain of transmitters. Amir b. Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas reported on the authority of his father that Muawiya b. Abi Sufyin appointed Sa’d as the Governor and said: What prevents you from abusing Abu Turab (Hadrat ‘Ali), whereupon be said: It is because of three things which I remember Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) having said about him that I would not abuse him and even if I find one of those three things for me, it would be more dear to me than the red camelg. I heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) say about ‘Ali as he left behind hrin in one of his campaigns (that was Tabuk). ‘All said to him: Allah’s Messenger, you leave me behind along with women and children. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said to him: Aren’t you satisfied with being unto me what Aaron was unto Moses but with this exception that there is no prophethood after me. And I (also) heard him say on the Day of Khaibar: I would certainly give this standard to a person who loves Allah and his Messenger and Allah and his Messenger love him too. He (the narrator) said: We have been anxiously waiting for it, when he (the Holy Prophet) said: Call ‘Ali. He was called and his eyes were inflamed. He applied saliva to his eyes and handed over the standard to him, and Allah gave him victory. (The third occasion is this) when the (following) verse was revealed:” Let us summon our children and your children.” Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) called ‘Ali, Fitima, Hasan and Husain and said: O Allah, they are my family. Sahih Muslim, Book 031, Number 5915 (iii) Some Incidents from Sunnan Abu Dawud Narrated AbuBakr: AbuBarzah said: I was with AbuBakr. He became angry at a man and uttered hot words. I said: Do you permit me, Caliph of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him), that I cut off his neck? These words of mine removed his anger; he stood and went in. He then sent for me and said: What did you say just now? I said: (I had said:) Permit me that I cut off his neck. He said: Would you do it if I ordered you? I said: Yes. He said: No, I swear by Allah, this is not allowed for any man after Muhammad (peace_be_upon_him).

Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 4859 Note: Sahaba are also included in this order i.e. Shari’i penalty of abusing Sahabi is to abuse once in return. And if twice is abused in return, again it’s a major sin. Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: Ibn Awn said: I asked about the meaning of intisar (revenge) in the Qur’anic verse: “But indeed if any do help and defend themselves (intasara) after a wrong (done) to them, against them there is no cause of blame.” Then Ali ibn Zayd ibn Jad’an told me on the authority of Umm Muhammad, the wife of his father. Ibn Awn said: It was believed that she used to go to the Mother of the Faithful (i.e. Aisha). She said: The Mother of the Faithful said: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) came upon me while Zaynab, daughter of Jahsh, was with us. He began to do something with his hand. I signalled to him until I made him understand about her. So he stopped. Zaynab came on and began to abuse Aisha. She tried to prevent her but she did not stop. So he (the Prophet) said to Aisha: Abuse her. So she abused her and dominated her. Zaynab then went to Ali and said: Aisha abused you and did (such and such). Then Fatimah came (to the Prophet) and he said to her: She is the favourite of your father, by the Lord of the Ka’bah! She then returned and said to them: I said to him such and such, and he said to me such and such. Then Ali came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and spoke to him about that. Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 4880 Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafic from Abdullah ibn Umar that a man cursed his wife in the time of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and disowned her child. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, separated them and gave the child to the woman. Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 29, Number 29.12.35 (iv) Some of the incidents of cursing from Masnad Ahmad bin Hanbal Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal narrated by Abu Huraira: “One person was abusing Abu Bakr and Rasool Allah (s) was watching it and smiling. When he didn’t stop, then Abu Bakr refuted him. Upon this, Prophet Muhammad (s) stood up and left. Hadhrat Abu Bakr said: “O Prophet of Allah, till the time he was abusing me, you kept on sitting (and smiling), and when I refuted him, why you became angry?” Rasool Allah (s) said: “O Abu Bakr, when he was abusing you, an angel was refuting him from your side, and when you started refuting him, then came devil and I cannot sit with devil”. Masnad Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal, vol. 2, page 436, published by Al-Maymniyyah, Egypt Same tradition can also be found in Mishkaatul Masabih, bab Al-Rafq, page 432, published by Ashah al-Mataba, Delhi, India. “Khalid bin Waleed reported that there was an exchange of hard words between Ammar bin Yasir and I. I abused Ammar and he went to Rasool Allah (s) to complain against me. We were talking nothing in front of Rasool Allah (s) except abusing each other and Rasool Allah (s) was sitting quietly. Ammar started weeping and said to Rasool Allah (s): “Don’t you see that he is abusing me.” Rasool Allah (s) rose his head and said, “One who will shows enmity towards Ammar, Allah will show enmity to him”. Masnad Imam Ahmad bin Hambal, vol. 4, page 89-90 Allama Ali Muttaqi Burhanpuri Hanafi records this incident in the following words: “A dispute took place between Khalid and Ammar bin Yassir and both of them abused each other. When they came to Rasool Allah (s), again both of them started abusing each other. Khalid said to Rasool Allah (s), “This slave is abusing me in front of you. By Allah, if you would not present here, he wouldn’t have abused me.” Rasool Allah (s) said, “O khalid, keep away (from abusing) Ammar. Anyone who shows enmity towards Ammar, Allah will show enmity to him.”. Sunni Refereces: Kanzul Ammal, vol 1, page 242.

It is known in Islamic sciences as “Hadith-e-Taqreeri”. (v) Some Incidents of Cursing from other Barki Books Muawiyyah bin Abi Suffyan was humiliated in his own court and neither he nor his companions punished those people. Although such traditions are not able to be noted, but they are only presented as a proof. Mulla Barkhurdar Multani, the mentor of famous book of Aqaid “Nabras ala Sharh al-Aqaeed” wrote: “Shareek bin ‘Aur came to Muawiyyah and he was ugly looking person. Muawiyyah said to him, “You are ugly looking man, and a good looking man is better than ugly looking man. And you are Shareek (partner), and there is no Shareek of Allah. And your father is ‘Aur, and Sahih (right) is better than ‘Aur, then how you managed to become the leader of your nation?” Shareek replied to Muawiyyah, “Muawiyyah is a [Edited Out] which calls dogs behind her. And you are a son of Sughar, and Sahal is better than Sughar, and you are a son of Harab, and Suleh is better than Harab, and you are a son of Ummaiyah and he is Tasgheer of Umata (a slave girl), then how you managed to become Amir-ul-Momineen?” Sunni Reference: Footnote of “Nabras ala Sharh al-Aqaeed”, page 510, published by Mutba Hashmi, Meraith India. Al-Mustaraf fi Kul Fan Mustaraf, vol. 1, page 82, published by Darul Kutub al-Arbia, Egypt.With slight variation in words same tradition can be found in, Tarikh-e-Khulafa by Syutti, page 139, published by Taba Majeedi, Kanpur, India. Ibne Hajar Makki reported: “When Abdullah Ibne Umar, the son of Hadhrat Umar, abused the companion of Rasool Allah (saww) Maqdad bin Aswad, then Hadhrat Umar threatened to cut his toungue. But later he freed him (without any punishment). Sawaiq-e-Muhariqqah, Page 257, Published in Cairo, Egypt Famous Hanafi Alim Sheikh Muhammad bin Qasim Al-Hanafi wrote in his compilation “Roz al-Akhyaar al-Muntakhib” page 195, published in Egypt: “Muawiyyah bin Abi Sufyan was famous for his cool temperament and no one was able to make him angry. Thus, one person claimed that he will make him angry. He came to Muawiyyah and said, I would like to marry your mother to meas her vagina is large and sweet (Naudabillah).” Muawiyyah laughed and replied, ‘That’s why my father loved her’. Then Muawiyyah ordered his treasurer to give him 1000 coins, so that he might buy a slave girl for him. Wa salam
  20. Asalam Alykum, I urge people specially those who seek to attain knowledge to take time and watch this Q and A session that happened and was posted on youtube. It is extremely informative. Watch this because you owe it to yourself to know more as a human being. Ma'Salam.
  21. A suckling who touches his mother's breasts by his hands, sucks the breasts to get milk. In fact, he wants milk, and if he takes something by his hands, in order to eat it, he will direct it to his mouth. His main objective is eating and if he finds that he has made a mistake, because what he has taken is not edible, he discards it. In like manner, man seeks truth in whatever course of action he takes. Whenever he finds that he has erred and has done wrong, he suffers and regrets the futile hardship he endured for an erroneous action. Finally, man always abstains from mistake and error and tries to get to the reality as much as he can. This sheds light on the fact that man is by nature and instinct a realist, i.e., willingly or unwillingly, he always seeks the reality and follows truth. Man has not learned this instinctive disposition from anyone and anywhere. If at times, man shows obstinacy and refuses to accept the truth, it is because he has been entangled with mistake and error without finding truth and piety. If he had found them, he would not have followed the path of error. Sometimes, too, man suffers from a psychological ailment due to carnal desires. This converts the sweet taste of truth into bitterness. Then although he is acquainted with the truth he does not follow it. Even though he admits the rightfulness of truth and confesses the necessity of abiding by it, he refrains from submission. This is similar to recurrent events in which due to addiction to harmful things, man suppresses his human instinct (which is removal of danger and an escape from loss) and embarks on an action that is detrimental (like those addicted to tobacco, alcohol, narcotics). The Holy Qur'an invites man towards realism and adherence of truth. Qur'an insists on this matter and, in various ways, asks different people to keep their realistic instinct and adherence with truth alive. Allah the Almighty states: "...And what is thereafter the truth but error...(10:32)." "Most surely man is in loss, except those who believe and do good and enjoin on each other truth and enjoin on each other patience (103:2-3)." Clearly, all these enjoinments by Allah show that if man does not keep his realistic instinct alive and if he does not strive to follow truth and reality, he would not be satisfied with his prosperity and happiness and would follow any lustful and pleasant expressions and endeavors. Consequently, he would be tied down by absurd thoughts and superstitions. Then, like a quadruped animal that has lost its way (which is man's asset), he will be the victim of his carnal desires and unrestrainedness due to his ignorance. The Almighty Allah states: "Have you seen him who takes his low desires for his god? Will you then be a protector over him? Or do you think that most of them do hear or understand? They are nothing but as cattle. nay, they are straying farther off from the path (25:43-44)." In brief the Almighty Allah says: How do you feel about people who worship their carnal desires? Do you think you can improve and educate these people? Do you think they listen and understand? They are more deviated than cattle. However, once their real human instinct revives and the spirit of following the truth starts functioning, the facts would be illuminating for them one after the other and whatever truth and fact become clear for them, they would accept readily. Every day, they would take a fresh step in the path of bliss and prosperity.

  22. (bismillah) (salam) Many rumors are spread these days. And most of us don't know how to deal with them or just get confused. Al Khateeb Ja'far Al Ibrahimi explains shortly how to deal with such rumors. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJzoGOZ4j5k
  23. I've never really thought about sects when I practice my faith, I guess my family would probably be Sunni, but I have an uncle who is Shia. Originally I didn't care about these 'sects', whenever anyone asked I'd say I was a Muslim, that I had no allegiance with either Sunnis or Shias; I fast, I pray, I believe in the oneness of Allah, the finality of Prophethood of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), when I grow up and have a job I will pay Zakaat. So what makes Sunnis sunni and Shias shia? Is there a 'right' sect? I don't want to go to Hell if there is a flaw with my indifference of which sect I'm supposed to belong to, do I have to choose a sect? And how can you know which sect is the right sect? Please help me
