From someone who is constantly harping on about defeating the others(Sunnis and atheists)......frankly they must have got fed up of you, but that is your objective.

Just admit it you are just envious of the learned brothers and that is why your heart uses such envious language. Envy is not good for the soul. 

My sincere advice to you, just stop talking to these guys. With his last post I really have to evaluate how valuable my time is. This is especially reflected in our attempts to try to bring quality research in our discussions, whether they be primary sources or secondary sources, or it is referring to expert treatment of the materials, or it is trying to analyze the Arabic text seriously to see what conclusion is best derived. We have seen nothing like that from their side, just self congratulating and insulting, which would be fine if they at least referred to something beyond translations from al-Islam.org. A list of better uses of your time:

  • Reading al-Tabari, whether in English (since the translation is so good) or in Arabic.
  • Reading expert scholarly treatments of Fadak, Karbala, and the event of the door.
  • Studying Arabic, Farsi, or even Polish.
  • Hitting your head on a wall.

I've thrown in the towel cause I have better things to do, you could even go to their methodology of bringing quotes from "grand ayatollahs" and I don't think these guys would care. They're just not worth the time and effort.

But wouldn't I be more envious of our marajae who are  "probably" more learned than these two??? I say probably because they freely do critique our marajae.

I know it is far beyond you to know the difference between an academic critique and an ignorant critique(what you do). 

Your disease is envy and hate(which is what you do internally to yourself too)

Start to feel sorry for yourself and change yourself.

A very coward like approach from one who tries to derail a topic of which he has no knowledge and is afraid to examine and scrutinize the material that has come to us. 

Too coward like to even admit that "I don't know and would some more knowledgeable members come forward to progress the discussion". Insecure at admitting a shortcoming of lack of knowledge. 

Truly sad at the state of these class of Shias. No wonder when the Imam(عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف) comes these are the people who will say what new religion have you brought to us.

Based on above post, last part about responsibility and ensuring clarity by well wishers is applicable here. Primary Directive should be providing Overall Clarity of bigger picture - to Lay people.

While I can see how I have pushed your buttons (reciprocal of course), brothers @S.M.H.A. and @Salsabeel have been nothing but respectful and polite towards you despite your rhetoric against them. Fact is you expected everyone to simply accept what you are saying and your anger is stemmed out of your arrogance.

The level of your anger is such that now you bring al-Islam into it. Your real anger is that you have been shown up by a couple of laymen who have a much better understanding of faith than you and of course at me for not bowing my head to your 'knowledge'.

It is far better than bringing quotes and statements of person who is alleged homosexual, mentioned as "greatest liar of the nation" in historical records.

Lets have a looks some more important things about al-Jahiz:

Alleged to homosexuality!!!

Tarik As-salat!!!

Greatest liar of the nation, lowest in his speech, supporter of evil!!!! 

:hahaha:, You can find all these quotations on the link below:

http://www.qsm.ac.il/arblanguage/docs/majalla/1/2-eng-khalil.pdf

Instead of forcing us to accept your research, I suggest you to see the research of other people too, like what is mentioned in the above link.

I never asked you to accept my research, I asked you to be fair in considering something other than the opinions of grand ayatollahs who aren't qualified to talk about every subject and be given the blind deference you and your friends wished to give them. It wasn't probably until page 5 of this thread that you tried to take this discussion seriously and didn't just flat out dismiss @Ibn al-Hussain, even then you don't seem to have been willing to take him or his arguments seriously.

I don't think you saw this post of mine which was in response to @ShiaMan14's quoting me (twice funnily enough, here and in that thread). I only have the same thing to say to you so you can consider all said there applicable to you. If you know Arabic at all, you know it only at a at a very basic level. You aren't acquainted with either Quranic or Classical Arabic well and you cannot appreciate al-Jahidh or his status in Arabic linguistics (which remains whether or not he was a sodomite). I really do hope you all can improve your demeanor and behavior, as of now it's pitiable and it was regretful I tried to engage with you at all.

The only thing I can say to you right now is congratulations on not plagiarizing again and linking to us the research you'd like us to see. Sad the bar has been set that low, though.

wassalam

With all due respect my dear brother! I have told you that I am not the relevant person to counter the arguments of your friend as I not specialized in this field. A better place for presenting research is howza ilmiya itself. You asked me to do my own research, so I started it and begin to question your friend in light of what I was reading, and I was started receiving insulting comments like I know nothing about basic Arabic grammar and I am rude, ignorant, unaware, difficult person who need to work on my own personality.

While till now, your friend haven't produced anything except the statement of al-Jahiz where he allegedly confessing that he has fabricated the sermon. We are skeptical about this confession because of the character of al-Jahiz as he was mentioned as "greatest liar" and "support of evil" in historical records. We still don't know what his arguments are!! We have just seen a promise that he will post a detailed research somewhere in future. How can we or anyone else simply accept the unknown arguments??

I have already presented my point of view on page 2,

Being a common man, I would just say that if the sermon available with us in our history books, a genuine one and are the words of Syeda Fatima (s.a), may Almighty Lord grant best reward for those who have preserved her blessed & pure words. If it is a fabrication, everyone knows what the fabricator would have earned by that. 

I also want to point out to everyone that at grass root level, the love of Syeda Fatima (s.a) in our hearts is independent of what historical records suggest and what opinion any scholar holds about any specific historical event.

but that it allows us to connect to her and her suffering relates to a higher truth about mourning for the ma'sumin.

That's really interesting. Could that be a possible reason why learned authorities who may be aware of some of the reliability issues nevertheless support narratives such as this?
