Lol... these guys, one clown worse than the other:

 

Haha abu hajaar(la), it was his first day at work.

Poor Abu Hajaar got yelled at so much more than everyone else. Obviously wasn't as good as everyone else at extracting rockets for the people/for the vehicles. But, then again, at least he wasn't the guy who almost shot a rocket without taking the safety cap off.

Seek Imam Husain from Allah and seek Allah from Imam Husain.

Seyed Hashem Hadad

Hi is right! If we take a look at Ziarat Ashura, somewhere in the dua we ask Allah for being with Imam Husain:

فَأَسْأَلُ اللّٰهَ … أَنْ يَـجْعَلَنِي مَعَكُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ، وَأَنْ يُثَبِّتَ لِي عِنْدَكُمْ قَدَمَ صِدْقٍ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ

And I ask Him (Allah) that … He place me with you – both in the transient world and also in the next life – and that he make me firm in your presence with a truthful stance both in the transient world and also the next life.

وَأَسْأَلُهُ أَنْ يُبَلِّغَنِي الْـمَقامَ الْـمَحْمُودَ لَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللّٰهِ

And I ask Him (Allah) that He enables me to reach to the honoured station with you in the presence of Allah

And somewhere else in the dua, we are asking Imam Husain for the tagharob to Allah.

يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ، إِنِّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إِلىٰ اللّٰهِ

O Aba-`Abdullah, I do seek nearness to Allah

Coincidence?  :book:

"Hallowed Eve" was a religious convenience for Feast Days. Now, it is a Fun Day.

As to retail, this A.M. a network/network was running a segment on "Saving for Christmas". Hallow'een is still over a week away.

As said 40 years ago, "They run it into the ground".

The hadith says that Al-Zubayr and his killer are both in Hellfire. And his repentance is of no use, he should have done what Al-Hurr Ibn Yazid (R) did, Al-Zubayr was a Sahabi and he should know the status of Imam Ali (A). He should have joined Imam Ali (A) and fought the baghi (rebellious) group as ordered by Allah (SWT) in His Book. Those who were "neutral" did not perform their wajib which is to support the Imam of their time.

And also, the famous hadith about the one who dies with no Imam, dies the death of Jahiliyya...

Nobody is saying Zubayr b. al-Awwam chose the best option when leaving the battlefield altogether. He clearly repented for fighting against the Imam and left the battlefield. When al-Zubayr's killer brought the sword to Imam Ali, the Imam prayed for al-Zubayr's forgiveness.

Most Shi'i today pair up Talha b. Ubaydallah and al-Zubayr as though they are both in the same boat. Talha was staunchly pro-Umayyed and fought the Imam until he died, whereas al-Zubayr was closer to banu Hashim and . There are several ahadith that state that al-Zubayr remained with the ahl al-Bayt until his son matured (his son was to blame). Al-Zubayr fought with Umar b. al-Khattab at Saqifa as well.

Bring an authentic hadith from Shi'i sources that says both al-Zubayr and his killer are both in hell-fire. Good luck.

One that dies without recognizing the Imam of their time, does not mean they are destined for hell-fire automatically. I'm sure you don't believe that all Sunnis will be thrown into hell-fire.

There are only two options, either with the Imam or not. There is no third option, and this is outlined by the Holy Qur'an -

And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah. And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.

[Al-Hujurat]

Those who were "neutral" did not fulfill this obligation that Allah (SWT) has obligated. 

Furthermore, the obedience to the Imam (AS) is like the obedience to the Holy Prophet (S) and this is proven through countless hadiths, notably Hadith Al-Ghadir and also Ayat Al-Wilaya in the Holy Qur'an.

What would be your position if someone remained "neutral" between the Holy Prophet (S) and the mushrikeen?

And yes, one that dies without recognising their Imam dies the death of deviance and kufr. This is actually what the sahih hadiths say. In fact, this the the position of our scholars, and it has been for hundreds of years, regarding the status of the mukhalif, the rejector of the Wilaya of Ahlulbayt. 

The only ones that will be saved are the mustad'afeen and the Hadith are explicit about this. In fact, Sayyed Al-Khoei explicitly stated this.

Also brother, I would love if we continue this conversation in our PMs, some members feel agitated that we are arguing in the Thoughts Thread.

Who created Halloween?

If you are actually asking....Quick version:The Celts. In ancient times. No one knows how old it is.  It was called Samhain and was their harvest festival. It was also thought to be one of the times of the year when the spirits of the dead could more easily pass into this one. People had feasts to welcome their dead relatives ,wore masks and costumes to impersonate them or frighten off evil spirits, and played games ,cut faces into hollowed out turnips and gourds to carry  as  " jack o lanterns" whilst going door to door playing tricks n their neighbors and asking for food ( treats) and had other celebrations depending  upon region.
The Church, on the other hand, had celebrations to honor dead saints from about the 500's on. The Feast of All Saints was usually held in the spring, but populations in Celtic Northern Europe started holding their church feast day ,logically, when they had always honored their dead, which was the night of the 31 of October through Nov.1.
Nov. 1 was called " "All Saints" or " All Hallows'" and Oct. 31 was " All Hallow's Eve" ( Hallowe'en).  Different cultural Traditions were combined with the Christian feast days.
Today, we have on the Church liturgical calendar All Hallows' Eve, All Saints ( Nov 1) and All Souls ( Nov.2) to honor the dead. All Saints and All Souls are still spiritual celebrations, but in America Halloween has evolved into a more  cultural secular celebration ,mainly for children.
Hope this helps.

@hasanhh @hameedeh @notme@Gaius I. CaesarWe did have one bit of comic relief during all the stress this week.

lol.

A few weeks ago, I was taking a nap and the Jehovah's Witnesses came up to the house.

DD decided she didn't want to deal with them either, so SG volunteered to talk with them and asked her advice on how to go about it.

She joked that he should pretend he did not speak English. (She didn't think he would actually do it!.) But apparently he was very polite in Arabic and  some fakey" broken English" ...has a sense of humor, that one.

Well, they left...and everyone forgot about it.

Yesterday we came home to a bunch of JW literature stuck under our doormat.

In Arabic.

Apparently he is now a " project"...lol.

What's going on here?

 

She is very brave woman. I know that media people sometimes do crazy things for ratings but there is no justification for this reaction. One thing which I don't understand is that all videos on internet are attacking her character and modesty. She was trying too hard for ratings but I fail to understand how she was being immodest in this video. One army person said, 'if you leave your house to work, don't expect any special treatment for being a woman'. So if a woman stays at home, she won't have to deal with physical abuse.

Repeal the 19th Amendment. :mod:  It is a subversive codicil to an honorable document.

@notme  l am skeptical about the polls. ln 2016 they have been really inaccurate, both in the US and the UK.

The online polls are all over the place. When l checked the Drudge Report after the 2nd Debate, the "who won" was 9:1 Trump, but on a liberal site, it was 4:1 Clinton (sorry, forgot which site).

The new point of skepticism is the male vote, which was running running 3:1 Trump is now, suddenly, neck-and-neck.

l do think the women's vote will decide this. This is one reason Hillar's ads are focused towards women. Another reason is the Hillar has always done poorly with Mid-West women.

So, we'll see.

Note: l was afraid l was getting a temp-suspension for my rant.

If only men vote, Trump would win easily. If only women vote, Hillary wins easily.

Why is that the case?

Also women, on average, seem to have more liberal views than men (as far as I have seen), why is that?

I would think that it's more so the hardline positions Trump holds (anti-immigration, pro-gun rights, pro-torture,etc) that appeal more to the (less empathic) nature of an average man than that of an average woman, than the fact that Trump is himself a man. Women have also historically tended to vote more Democrat than man, as evidenced by the most reason presidential election.

A good resource on this:

That's easy to answer. Women tend to be more compassionate, more community oriented and less individual oriented than men. 

As for why any man or woman would vote for Clinton or Trump, I have no idea. They are each the same as the other, and both are evil rich people who think they are above the law. Neither is fit to be president of anything.

You wish, if it bothers you so,why not move to Saudi Arabia? I'm sure it's a great success without them pesky women voters.
