  1. In the Sahih of al-Bukhari, there is an interesting hadith where the Prophet (saw) stands up on the minbar and makes an unbelievable statement: مَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يَسْأَلَ عَنْ شَىْءٍ فَلْيَسْأَلْ عَنْهُ، فَوَاللَّهِ لاَ تَسْأَلُونِي عَنْ شَىْءٍ إِلاَّ أَخْبَرْتُكُمْ بِهِ، مَا دُمْتُ فِي مَقَامِي هَذَا ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَ أَنَسٌ فَأَكْثَرَ النَّاسُ الْبُكَاءَ، وَأَكْثَرَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنْ يَقُولَ ‏"‏ سَلُونِي ‏"‏‏.‏ فَقَالَ أَنَسٌ فَقَامَ إِلَيْهِ رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ أَيْنَ مَدْخَلِي يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ ‏"‏ النَّارُ Whoever wants to ask me any question, may do so, for by Allah, you will not ask me about anything but I will inform you of its answer as long as I am at this place of mine." On this, the Ansar wept violently, and Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) kept on saying, "Ask Me! " Then a man got up and asked, ''Where will my entrance be, O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)?" The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "(You will go to) the Fire."... (https://sunnah.com/bukhari/96/25) Clearly, no one can make such statement unless he is either 1) A liar or 2) a divine proof sent by God. Now, who was the only other person that has stated a similar statement? None other than Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as). عن أبي الطفيل قال شهدت عليا وهو يخطب وهو يقول سلوني فوالله لا تسألوني عن شيء يكون إلى يوم القيامة إلا حدثتكم به وسلوني عن كتاب الله فوالله ما من آية إلا وأنا أعلم بليل نزلت أم بنهار أم في سهل أم في جبل Abu al-Tufayl : I witnessed Ali, while giving a sermon, saying, “Ask me! By Allah, you will not ask me anything that will happen till the Hour except that I will inform you about it. Ask me about the Book of Allah! By Allah, there is not a single ayat (verse) in it except that I am the most knowledgeable as to whether it was revealed in the night or during the day, in the plain lands or amidst mountains. (http://discovershiaislam.blogspot.com/2012/01/imam-aliassalooni-salooni-kabla.html) So now we are left we are left with two options. Either 1) Imam Ali (as) is a Liar or 2) he is a divine proof sent by God. And May Allah Bless Muhammed and his Purified Progeny
  2. Salaam all, I have been watching the Umar series just to allow free thought and invite open-mindedness and to understand the roots of Islam and shism better. I just had a question: The prophet passed away, not long after the event of ghadeer whereby he proclaimed Imam Ali (a.s) as a successor. Upon the tragic death of the prophet, the "muslims" decided to take control of the ummah (as though it was their responsibility and not Allah's command). They treated Islam as a country, rather than a divine message, allowing to 'elect' leaders themselves, whereas, Islam has always been a religion propagated by DIVINELY CHOSEN individuals, not those chosen by ordinary fallibles. So my question is, how come, upon 'electing' the next successor, not one individual spoke about ghadeer, how can such a vast majority of muslims simply 'forget' about such an important event. I mean, not all of them would have been power hungry, at least someone should have remembered it.. Since so many people had forgotten about such an event, and so quickly, what does that say about ghadeer itself, it happened, for sure, but how would one justify it through this lens? Wassalam
  3. Note: This is not a shia sunni issue. So I am posting it here. And this is not to offend anyone. Focus on the message and its impact.
  4. Bismillahirahmaniraheem Asalaamu Alaykum all. Within the past few months, I have been very depressed in regards to my marriage, more specifically with my husband's interactions with me. I know in Islam the husband is the wali (leader) in the relationship & I completely accept that. The issue here is abuse of that power and my husband says that because he is my wali he has the right to hit me when I mis-behave. To him this means, if I speak loudly at home *not in a mean way, he can still hit me because "woman's voices should not be heard", if I angry and i raise my voice, if I swear, if my hijab becomes lose (hair peeks out, pin is lose, chin is showing) he calls me a bad hijabi. However, he can make sexist jokes, joke about rape, polygamy, swear etc & I have to be quiet because he is the wali. I want to know if being the wali, also means the relationship you have with your wife is a dominant-submissive one, he even jokes about calling me his slave. Being the wife, and him the wali- what do I do? I am not the quiet kind of person and I have spoken to him so many times but his response is always "wali" "husbands rights" please help, I am going through crazy depression and I cry almost everyday because of him.
  5. Please watch and also if there are hadith that stress the importance of shahadah and how shahadah and wilayah go hand in hand that would be great
  6. My first post here. I've been reading about Sunni and Shia issues for quite some time and also read some hadith on the subject of rejecting them. I'm quite confused on that and would require some understanding as to why the Shia Imams have said so. One of the hadith is the following: Imam Musa al-Kadhim [a] said, "Do not falsify anything that reaches you from us, or is attributed to us, even if you believe in the contrary. Surely, you do not know why we said it, nor upon what meaning [we said it in] or its description." حدثنا محمد بن الحسين عن محمد بن إسماعيل عن حمزة بن بزيع عن علي السناني عن أبي الحسن ع انه كتب إليه في رسالة ولا تقل لما بلغك عنا أو نسب إلينا هذا باطل وان كنت تعرفه خلافه فإنك لا تدري لم قلنا وعلى أي وجه وصفة. (Basa'ir ad-Darajat) Can some please assist me with the grading and reference. And also explain as to why one cannot discard a hadiths that go against the Quran and the established sunnah? Also, I was searchng for the hadith that is said by one of the Imams stating that if somebody rejects hadith, then he is outside the fold of wilayah. Can some brothers/sisters post those hadith with their references and grading for my benefit? Thank you.
  7. Salam, It is a universally accepted principle in Islam that we all are slaves of Allah. Not a single Muslim disputes this. So, we are literally owned by Allah. Moreover, it is also universally accepted that the entire earth and all that its contains belong exclusively to Allah. To put it in a more familiar way, the entire territories of the United States, for instance, belongs to Allah Alone. Thirdly, it is universally accepted by all Muslims that the Kingdom of the heavens and earth belongs exclusively to Allah. Sovereignty only belongs to Allah, and never to the people or rulers of any land. There is no Muslim on this earth who disputes any of these three principles. Meanwhile, as slaves, we have do NOT have any wilayah, by ourselves, over anything, not even over ourselves. A slave owns nothing; and wilayah refers to control and authority. No slave, by himself, has wilayah over another slave. We are all equal in this respect. Even the Prophet and the Imams, 'alaihim al-salam, by themselves have zero wilayah over anyone. So, before a slave can exercise wilayah over another slave, he MUST derive his wilayah directly or indirectly from Allah, the only Wali. Also, no slave can exercise wilayah upon the land of his Owner without the Latter's explicit permission. Whoever arrogates to himself, without permission from Allah, wilayah over His land or slave is a taghut, as all Muslims unanimously agree. The question then is: did Yazid b. Mu'awiyah derive his wilayah directly or indirectly from Allah? What about the khalifahs before him?
  8. (salam) The basic question should self explanatory however I would also like the more learned among us to revisit and for the rest of us to learn about the Shia views on wilayah of Imam (as) and the concept of Imamat. Imamat is a usool-e-deen of our belief, as most might already know. So: (1) how do you define wilayah, and briefly explain the belief in imamat in your own words, if you would like to please? (2) what is the purpose of Imamat and wilayah? (3) why is it so imperative and necessary part of the comprehensive or complete belief, so much so that it was/is deemed an usool? (4) what are its practical or theoretical applications, if any? (5) what do Imamat and Wilayah encompass? (7) how does it make us so different from the Sunnies? Your beneficial input in this matter will be rewarded by Allah.
