  1. What is Difference b/w Sunni and Wahabi ? Wahab are those who were invented by English (British) with the help of Mohammed bin Abdul Wahab Najdi who belongs to an area of Najd (now which is part of Riadh, capital of Saudi Arabia). Mission was to destroy Ottoman Empire which was a pure Sunni and to destroy Islam too. They collect people who were against Sunni Govt and were greedy and rascal. Those people were from Khawarij.When English starts to attack on Ottoman Empire, these people starts slaughtering those who were Sunni, and they call those innocent as "Mushrik" (Mushrik are those who worshops gods of Stones).Sunni had lot of Shrines of Sahaba (companion of Mohammed) and Ahle Bayt.Wahabis started to destroy the Shrines of Sahaba and Sufi (Auliyah). They call those are infidel, who go to Shrines and asks them for help.However It is the belief of the Ahl-as-Sunnah that it is permissible to supplicate to Allah with the Tawasul of good deeds. It is permitted to supplicate with the Tawasul of a living pious person and it is also permitted to supplicate with the Tawasul of the deceased pious person. Sunni were those who send "Lanah" on Yazid, they respect Ameer Muawiya but hate Yazid.But Wahabi were those who defend Yazid. Sunni were those who believe that it is impermissible to say Ya Muhammad! or Ya Rasoolullah [May Allah bless him and grant him peace], but Wahabi said that “Ya Rasul Allah is 'shirk' and it is Wajib to kill Sunni people, and it is is wajib to loot their Sisters, Daughters, Wives and Mothers and it is Wajib to loot their Money. So, Sunni gives them a name of Wahabis, because they were follower of Mohammed bin Abdul Wahab Najdi, but not Mohammed. After a period of time they were suceeded to snatch Hijaz (old name of Saudi Arabia), and after the period of Saud, they renamed the Hijaz to Saudi Arabia.

    Dr Bilal Philips?

    I am talking about Dr Bilal Philips who is a very popular sunni speaker amongst millions of muslims who admire him. Here is a comment of his on Ashura on Facebook: (2013) "If anyone is stupid, it is you, for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not teach us to remember the martyrdom of his own beloved uncle, Hamzah, so why should we have to remember that of his grandson?" This is height of jahliyat(ignorance) and it just goes to show how irresponsible sunnis are when they accept a hypocrite leader like him. I think we are witnessing the signs of judgement day when we have such leaders representing Islam.
  3. Salaam all, I have created this account because I love the helpful feedback and comments I've seen on this forum for months now, because I now am in need of help: To cut a long story short I keep wanting to leave my husband, he is very emotionless and my marriage feels one sided. I come from a Wahhabi and Sunni background, and he introduced me to the teaching of Shia Islam and I reverted within the week. I am young, and I did not have a wedding as my mum being from a Wahhabi background was unhappy with this choice, but my dad supported me, thank god, and we got our Nikah done. Since then, I have become increasingly isolated, I do not have any Muslim friends and I have never spoken to anyone about my marriage issues (besides my husbands- who does not seem to care). I have been pressured into wearing hijab by his family as they would forbid him marrying me, but he does not see any wrong in this and says that it was a good thing. All of these changes started to happen very fast, and I was 21 years old when I fell in love with him, I have been telling myself that things will get better, but nothing does and I am becoming increasingly depressed. I cannot speak to my parents regarding this because of everything we went through to be together, and I once spoke to my mum and she implied that I deserve this for my choice in husband. It has been a struggle and we have been together now for 4 years, he is a [occupation], which I realise is draining him and I am patient and try and be as good as I can, I cook for him his favourite meals, I am not [ethnicity] but have tried to learn some [language] and to learn all his favourite [ethnic] meals, and I try to give him space as best as I can too. All he wants to do is play computer/ video games when he comes home and very rarely spends time with me, I have brought this up many times, but nothing changes, and he seems not to care. Also, I have struggled with the hijab, as I live in a very racist town, but have persisted to wear it for God, the only thing that I hate is the hypocrisy that I'm starting to notice, such as, he pressured me to put it on, but when there is a semi naked lady on the telly he doesn't change the channel or look away? I don't understand, but we have had a few arguments regarding this. Today, I said to him I am very unhappy and am considering a divorce, he didn't seem to care and said go ahead... Problem is, I do actually love him, and don't want a divorce, especially as I know it will make things harder in many ways. Has anyone else gone through anything similar or has any advice or coping strategies please? I'm considering seeking professional help, but the town I live in rather racist and it would be hard to find a therapist that can empathise with a Muslim. Thanks for your time.
  4. Salaam to everyone This is my first post, hopefully not last (admins don't ban me) I'm new to Islam. After leaving the Hari krishna cult, which has given me nothing but misery. Lately, I've been finding it difficult to actually get a sense of belonging. I'd identify myself as a Muslim, in terms of my actions and where I get information from, I'd say more towards the Sunni persuasion. I do YouTube videos just for fun. But lately, it's become serious. Shocking, in terms of my views and opinions I've attracted a lot of support from the Shia community and have been shunned and even had death threats from people who identify themselves as Sunni. I speak against Wahhabi and Salafism. I want Shia people to give me their thoughts on Wahhabis and Salafis. Are there any Shia's who agree or support them? It seems like some Sunnis do but they would never identify themselves as Salafi but will be the first to scream and shout that they are Sunnis. Here is my video, please do go through the comments. Some are laughable, some are really stupid and some really good ones who support my ideas. Am I doing a wrong this but exposing Saudi Arabia? Am I incorrect in my understanding of Islam? Does Islam actually state you can't criticize people of Saudi Arabia because Mecca and Madinah sits with them? I do hope the above makes sense. Regards Praecursator 007
  5. So here I have a kind of question on the most popular criticism used bu Sunni/Wahabbis against shias. This is what I am talking about : http://www.sunni-news.net/en/articles.aspx?article_no=27879 Summary:Sunnis say that the beliefs of christians and shias are same as they take their prests/imams as gods other than Allah. Like in the case of Ali and Jesus, Christians believe that Jesus was a God but so week to die on a cross, while shias believe that Ali (a.s) is on higher rank than Prophet Muhammad and strong like God but so week to protect Islam after Prophet Muhammad and had to accept all kinds of accusations against him. (ASTAGFIRULLAH) Question : Now my question is that how can we prove them wrong ? Are we really saying that Ali has attributes of God ?
  6. This a the last music video of Hamed Zamani, Iranian revolutionary singer.
  7. Many do not know this, but it is recorded in Sahih Bukhari that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) WARNED that from Saudi Arabia shall emerge... "THE HORNS OF SATAN" WATCH: PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) WARNED US ABOUT WAHHABISM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O07D--h25n0

  9. Salam, Excelente articulo explicando las realidades que el Islam vive hoy en dia sobre el sectarianismo. http://houssainlabrass.blogspot.com/2013/05/el-sectarismo-sunni-vs-shia.html
  10. Sorry about the sizzling title. But given the multi pronged war for the control of Middle East and South, Central, and East Asia, by inflaming a Catholic-Protestant like civil war between Shia and Sunni, do not be surprised if you wake up one morning and hear these two headlines blaring on your TV screens: A huge nuclear explosion in one of the suburbs of Damascus killing a few hundred thousand Syrians all at once. SIMULTANEOUSLY Intelligence Agencies good at framing nations and hostile regimes "reporting" a nuclear warhead stolen from Pakistan's arsenal. There are already reports in media suggesting this happening in near future. 1. A new memo issued by certain western agencies focusing on Pakistan's nuclear file again, insisting they have no count of exact number of Pakistani warheads. 2. An open threat of Syrian Takfiri insurgents using any kinds of weapons they could get their hands on. This video came out yesterday. 3. Reports of Saudis attempting to purchase a few Pakistani nuclear warhead in response to false flag Iranian centrifuges going above 20% level. Google it, reports are already out there. 4. An absolute defeat of Syrian terror mongers fast approaching predicted by their handlers in West. 5. Allies of Syrian regime waiting with a baited breath to punish Israel for any attack from Mediterranean Sea. Israelis frightened and cornered could do anything in response given their regime really doesn't care much about collateral damage to their own citizens in an event of a mushroom cloud.
  11. Just wanted to let you all know of an alternative news organization MintPress. I found some of their articles interesting and debatable, at the very least, a breeze of fresh air in the stagnant pond of rotten news in USA specially from the commercial media (CNN, Fox, NPR etc.). Here's the website: http://www.mintpressnews.com/ Here's what the MintPress founder Mnar Muhawesh says about her ambitions: “If you know what you are doing is going to make a difference for Muslims, then do it,” she says. The need for Muslim, especially Shia, journalists has become crucial in the Western world, Muhawesh feels. “[We] as Muslims are not represented equally as we should be, and as long as Muslims avoid journalist careers, then the voice of the Muslims will rarely be heard or even understood,” she adds. Many Shia scholars, including the prominent Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi of Toronto, have stressed the need to enter the world of journalism. Being the mainstream source of media, journalists are gifted with that ability to let the world know what Islam and Shi’ism really stand for. As Muhawesh puts it “Alhamdullila I feel like God has given me a mission in life to represent Muslims in the one country that is fighting a war against Islam, yet the one country that is giving opportunity to everyone. I am taking advantage of this opportunity and will Insha’Allah help Muslims everywhere.”
  12. This is the tale of a Pakistani mother and a wife who is neither a mother nor a wife anymore due to the Takfiris terrorist attack on a mosque in a systematic genocide committed by the blessing of the Pakistani state. This is a story of ONE Shia pakistani woman out of 50,000, whose husbands, fathers, and sons have been ripped into lifeless human body remains as suicide bombings have become the favorite mode of keeping Shia population of Pakistan in check and under subjugation. http://en.shiapost.com/2013/08/18/my-sacrifice-to-god-by-midhat-zaidi/ P.S. This article did deserve a separate space in SC but so far, I'll have to put it in ''General Politics and Current Issues".... Topic like this deserves a new topic called "Shia Genocide in Pakistan".

  14. (bismillah) (salam) How I Found the Right Path by Brother Muhammad Yusuf BisMillah Hir Rahman Nir Rahiim In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful How did I, a Sunni following Hanafi fiqh, come to find and embrace the Right Path of Ahl ul-Bayt? All Praise and all Thanks are for Allah (Subhana wa'tala) who in His Mercy and Compassion guided me toward the truth. My journey began when, on starting a new job, I first met a follower of Ahl ul-Bayt. Up until that time, I knew little about those who were called Shi'as - except what I had heard from Sunni brothers, which to say the least was not very complimentary. I had read nothing about them, for I had never found anything to read: all the books on Islam I came across over a period of many years were about Sunni Islam, written by Sunni Muslims. All the Muslims I had met, in my country of residence and in places like Egypt, were Sunni, and even on that modern medium of communication, the Internet, I had not come across any Shia sites, probably because I had not looked for them specifically and just followed links from one Sunni site to another Sunni site. I also knew very little about the early history of Islam, except of course what I had read in Sunni books about how wonderful the 'pious Caliphs' were. And yet I had already begun to think seriously about certain questions, such as predestination, and begun to be a little concerned about some Hadith which I read in Bukhari and Muslim which seemed to me in my innocence and with my lack of knowledge to contradict the words of the Holy Quran. I had concerns also about following scholars, for I was always being told that I could choose which Madhhab to follow, and that if I personally was not happy with something, I could follow another school in certain matters just as I could take advice from, and follow the advice of, any scholar of any School. This just did not seem to be right. Perhaps I should add that at this time I was a relatively recent convert to Islam, having over a period of some years come to discover the truth about Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) and having become convinced that not only was Allah the one and only God, but also that Muhammad (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) was his Messenger and Prophet. [ I had previously been a Christian, and indeed, a Catholic monk for a while.] The Shia brother and I were the only Muslims in our place of work so it was natural that we prayed Zuhr and Asr together. He was kind, considerate and well-mannered - in fact, an example of what Muslims should be - and it did not matter that he prayed in a slightly different way from me. I just assumed in my naivety that he was simply following a different Madhhab. Then I mentioned that I was praying with a Shia to a brother at the local Masjid. His negative reaction just made me interested in finding out more about them. So I asked some questions of my Shia brother. He answered simply, always stressing that I must make my own judgement and use reason as a guide. One incident I remember vividly. I had been sent several articles by a group, who were influenced by the Wahhabi, which were vehemently anti-Shia, and which made all sort of allegations about the followers of Ahl ul-Bayt. I mentioned this group to my Shia brother, and he said, calmly and simply: "What you you think about them?" I replied that I could not see the Prophet Muhammad (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) acting in such an intolerant way, for I remembered the Hadith about how the Prophet treated the man who was ill-mannered enough to urinate in a Mosque while the Prophet himself (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) was there. My Shia brother said nothing, but a few days later (as I remember it) he leant me a copy of an English translation of Nahj al-Balagha containing some of the wisdom of Imam Ali (Alayhi salaam). I read it, and marveled at his wisdom, and decided to try and find out more about these Shia's - at this time, I still knew so little I did not even know that Shia meant follower, and that the Shias were followers of Ahl ul-Bayt, a term which again meant nothing to me. Then, not long after, I left my job to take up new employment and so lost contact with my Shia brother, although I did try to contact him, once, but my E-mail was returned as I obviously had not remembered the right address. Several months went by before I began a more serious study, prompted by reading about the sermon of Ghadeer Khumm as related in Tirmidhi and Muslim: Sunni sources which I still implicitly accepted. For were they not Sahih - second only to the Holy Quran itself? Here was the Prophet (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) stating that we should follow and hold onto his Ahl ul-Bayt, just as I had read how he had many times praised Imam Ali (Alayhi salaam) in such terms that surely meant he saw or wanted Ali (Alayhi salaam) to be his successor. I discovered some of the basic beliefs of the followers of Ahl ul-Bayt, such as Taqlid and the Fourteen Infallibles and the more I considered these, the more rational and logical they seemed. They were natural, logical consequences of the Holy Quran itself. This really enlightened me about the Shia: it was as if I had come across a fundamental truth for the first time, something simple and yet profound. A few days later, on an Internet site, I read about Karbala. I admit I cried. How could those who called themselves Muslims treat fellow Muslims as they did - and in particular how could they fight, and kill, the grandson of the Holy Prophet himself? I found this fact quite astonishing. How did this tragedy come about? And then, I read some of the words spoken by the fourth Imam (Alayhi salaam) about this tragedy, and what it meant and would always mean. I then spent several days reading about the early history of Islam - about the Umayyads and Abbasids and how they viciously persecuted the followers of Ahl ul-Bayt. I read Muhammad Tijani's Then I Was Guided and his Shia are the Real Ahl al-Sunna, several other books and many, many articles written by followers of Ahl ul-Bayt. I read the sermon of Imam Husain (Alayhi salaam) at Mina which described the appalling state of Arabia only fifty years after Muhammad's death (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) - the corruption of Yazid, and the corruption of the scholars of that time. And I remembered a saying I had read somewhere: "Every day is Ashura and every land is Karbala." I thought deeply about the issues my reading had raised, and became convinced that it was my duty, as a Muslim, to follow Ahl ul-Bayt - for that was clearly the wish of the Holy Prophet (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad) who was revealing the will of Allah, which as a Muslim I must submit to. There were simply no rational arguments against the beliefs of the followers of Ahl ul-Bayt, since it seemed to me that these beliefs not only expressed what was reasonable, and logical, but were also based on the teachings of the Holy Prophet himself (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad). So it was that I tried to find my Shia brother. I found a name similar to his in the telephone directory of the city where I knew he lived, and telephoned. A fax machine answered, so I sent a brief fax, asking him to contact me, not knowing whether he would ever receive it. Alhamdulillah, the fax machine belonged to his Uncle and less than a week later I was with him, and the Imam, at his local Masjid, affirming that Ali (Alayhi salaam) was the rightful successor of the Prophet (Allahumma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad).
