What does that have to do with what you said earlier and now? Again you are not bringing me Quranic verses you are bringing me Translation from A person you don't even name..

It has to do with it everything. It seems that i need to explain to you for such a simplistic self evident verse. Do you agree that everything good what we get is from Allah (Q, 4:79)? If yes, then every mercy the person gives to another person  is good, thus we say it is Allah who gave that mercy to the person A to person B and etc, because every goodness comes from Allah. This means the God goodness is manifested through them. 

When I look at the Prophet Muhammad, I can witness that truly God manifest His mercy through him. Do you even agree with this? At same time we don't say Prophet Is The Merciful.

No one shares absolute God names or attributes. Prophet Muhammad is not The Merciful. But He is mercy. And His mercy is from Allah. And Allah names are simply indicators to Him and the names are description of His Essence and His essence is distinct from creations.

Quote

 I can strongly and firmly confirm that you DO believe in the names/attributes of Allah subhanah wa ta3ala manifesting into people. I believe it is time to end this. Ponder upon this verse.

You should be very careful of what you are saying about other beliefs, because if you are wrong, you will be in responsible of it.

Quote

Second of all Someone wrote that the NAMES of Allah (You are adding attributes) can manifest through people. Shirk. Actually let me ask you a question...do prophets, especially Wali Al Azm prophets (Moses a.s., Jesus a.s....) manifest the names and attributes of God perfection like you stated? (Yes) or (No)? 

I will show you a verse and Imam tafsir of it, and if you understand it correctly, then we are in same page:

 

وَرَ‌سُولًا إِلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَ‌ائِيلَ أَنِّي قَدْ جِئْتُكُم بِآيَةٍ مِّن رَّ‌بِّكُمْ ۖ أَنِّي أَخْلُقُ لَكُم مِّنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ‌ فَأَنفُخُ فِيهِ فَيَكُونُ طَيْرً‌ا بِإِذْنِ اللَّـهِ ۖ وَأُبْرِ‌ئُ الْأَكْمَهَ وَالْأَبْرَ‌صَ وَأُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ بِإِذْنِ اللَّـهِ ۖ وَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَمَا تَدَّخِرُ‌ونَ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

 

to be a Messenger to the Children of Israel saying, "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I will create for you out of clay as the likeness of a bird; then I will breathe into it, and it will be a bird, by the leave of God. I will also heal the blind and the leper, and bring to life the dead, by the leave of God. I will inform you too of what things you eat, and what you treasure up in your houses. Surely in that is a sign for you, if you are believers. (3:49)

 

The Tafsir of this that has reached us from the Ahl al-Bayt عليهم السلام is:

 

في التوحيد عن الرضا عليه السلام إنه سئل وغير الخالق الجليل خالق قال إن الله تبارك وتعالى قال تبارك الله أحسن الخالقين وقد أخبر أن في عباده خالقين وغير خالقين منهم عيسى بن مريم خلق من الطين كهيئة الطير بإذن الله والسامري خلق لهم عجلا جسدا له خوار

 

In al-Tawhid, from al-Ridha عليه السلام that he was asked, and other than the Sublime Creator created? He (al-Ridha) said that Allah تبارك وتعالى said: Blessed be Allah, the best of the creators and he had informed us that from his servants are creators and non-creators. From them, 'Isa bin Maryam created from clay, the likeness of a bird, by the will of Allah, and al-Samiri created for them a calf who's body bellowed.

al-Kashani, Tafsir al-Safi (3:49)

--- 

When Isa ibn Maryam created by the Will of Allah, It means Allah manifested His power of Creator trough Isa ibn Maryam. It does not mean Isa suddenly is The Creator.

You don't get it *shakes head*...If someone said Ahlul bayt MEASURE rizq are cursed by Imam Sadiq a.s. himself, what do you think about those who say they DISTRIBUTE rizq which is WORSE?

Dont try to assume anything on behalf of Imam, please. I have highlighted the word "taqderoona" in that hadith & presented before you a verse of Quran having the same root word "inna kulla shayen khalaqnahu beqadar".

The word "distribution" is not present in your quoted hadith.

Now lets see a hadith containing the same word:

عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن مثنى الحناط عن أبي بصير قال: دخلت على أبي جعفر عليه السلام فقلت له: أنتم ورثة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله؟ قال: نعم، قلت: رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وارث الأنبياء، علم كما علموا؟ قال لي: نعم، قلت: فأنتم تقدرون على أن تحيوا الموتى وتبرؤا الأكمه والأبرص؟ قال: نعم بإذن الله، ثم قال لي: ادن مني يا أبا محمد فدنوت منه فمسح على وجهي وعلى عيني فأبصرت الشمس والسماء والأرض والبيوت وكل شئ في البلد ثم قال لي: أتحب أن تكون هكذا ولك ما للناس وعليك ما عليهم يوم القيامة أو تعود كما كنت ولك الجنة خالصا؟ قالت: أعود كما كنت، فمسح على عيني فعدت كما كنت، قال: فحدثت ابن أبي عمير بهذا، فقال أشهد أن هذا حق كما أن النهار حق

 Translating the part I highlighted red: I (Abi Basir who is narrating the Hadith) said: "So you have decree (or power) over giving life to the dead, and curing the blind and lepers?" He (Imam Abi Ja'far Muhammad Al-Baqir (as)) said: "Yes, by the permission of Allah,"

This is found in Al-Kafi volume 1 page 470 hadith 3

Allama Majlisi called it's chain Hasan (Good) in Mir'at Al-Uqul volume 6 page 20

(Note: hadith taken from referred threads by brother Dhulfikar)

Now lets see verses of chapter Al-kahaf:

Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 79:

أَمَّا السَّفِينَةُ فَكَانَتْ لِمَسَاكِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ فِي الْبَحْرِ فَأَرَدتُّ أَنْ أَعِيبَهَا وَكَانَ وَرَاءَهُم مَّلِكٌ يَأْخُذُ كُلَّ سَفِينَةٍ غَصْبًا

As for the boat, it belonged to (some) poor men who worked on the river and I wished that I should damage it, and there was behind them a king who seized every boat by force.

(English - Shakir)

Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 82:

وَأَمَّا الْجِدَارُ فَكَانَ لِغُلَامَيْنِ يَتِيمَيْنِ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ وَكَانَ تَحْتَهُ كَنزٌ لَّهُمَا وَكَانَ أَبُوهُمَا صَالِحًا فَأَرَادَ رَبُّكَ أَن يَبْلُغَا أَشُدَّهُمَا وَيَسْتَخْرِجَا كَنزَهُمَا رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ وَمَا فَعَلْتُهُ عَنْ أَمْرِي ذَٰلِكَ تَأْوِيلُ مَا لَمْ تَسْطِع عَّلَيْهِ صَبْرًا

And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure belonging to them, and their father was a righteous man; so your Lord desired that they should attain their maturity and take out their treasure, a mercy from your Lord, and I did not do it of my own accord. This is the significance of that with which you could not have patience.

(English - Shakir)

What is this? A sevant of Allah doing "tadbeer" for protecting the means of sustenance of poor men by damaging the boat & doind tadbeer for protecting the treasure of orphan boys.

Brother question is not statement. Question is what is in heart. Giving independence to Angle of death makes problem. It is Allah made Angle to cause death. Angle by himself can do nothing. 

It was said "be-ithnillah" by me. Why you feel the need to remind me the shirk?

To all the learned members who are discussing on this thread, few are accusing shia of worshiping Imam and while few others accused for ghlu. I am not here to either explain or prove anything to anyone. All of us are having brain and Allah has provided us this great gift so that we can reach our destination using this. 

It is well known fact that Allah ordered angels to prostrate in front of Adam as. 

My question to all of you who are opposing shia intercession with Imam is simple-

Kindly define the prostration of angels in front Adam as. Plz let us all know whether that was shirk, kufr, ghlu or Iman?

Anyone who will get the answer of this question using mind will be able to understand true meaning of Imamat and its place in shia Islam.

Let us see what people say to the following video that i have posted before and got no comment for. Here are people who call the shrine on a telephone to ask the imam reza for help. These practices are purely praying to others than Allah to me, and i don't see any tradition of ahlul bayt or quran or prophetic teachings in this. Just purely human pitfalls that come again and again through history. Please, anybody tell me what you think of the following hotline to imam reza for praying to him:

 

 

This is called online waseela. No need to personally go to shrine and to spent hundreds of dollars just call and talk to Imam on hotline for you needs. Such practises are disgust for shias. But unfortunately many tv channels are involved in this and are providing this service to people all over the world.

Brother following video is of Karbala satelite channel, who is also doing the same. In fact much better than what you shared.

 

Watch this, how dangerous this waseela concept has become.

because of these practices that so many shias do and endorse, i hesitate and feel shame when referring to myself as shia in sunni countries. As most all sunnis are aware of this, and i feel that i always need to explain "i am shia, but i don't self flagellate or cut my babies foreheads, and i don't pray to others than Allah" Most non-shias think that all shias do this, much like many if not most non-muslims think that all muslims are terrorists! Being referred to as muslim is not much better these days!

You are right brother. Such things have ruined the shia image all over the world. Whether someone like it or not and whether someone practise it or not, this is how the world sees shias in general.

 

And if you search shia muslims on google you will find this https://www.google.com/search?q=shia+muslim&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwic45XBxODUAhUDT48KHdlaAXAQ_AUIBigB&biw=1366&bih=632#tbm=isch&q=shia+muslims

 

Many shia scholars are also responsible for this. They are the backbone of such people who practise and defend such beliefs.

Prayer of Imam Ali reza a.s

O Allah, to you belong the creation and from you is the provision. You do we worship and from You we do seek help.

O Allah, You are our creator and the creator of our first fathers and our last fathers. O Allah, lordship is not suitable except with you. and Divinity befits non except for You.

O Allah, verily we are your slaves and sons of your slaves. We have no power over ourselves in respect of benefit or harm, nor death, life or resurrection.

O Allah, whoever claims that we are lords, then we are free from him, whoever claims that to us is the power of creation and providing sustenance, then we are free from him. We are free from him like Issa is free from the christians.

O Allah, we have never called them to what they claim, so do not take us into account fro what they say and forgive us for they claim.

My Lord do not leave upon the earth from them an inhabitant, indeed if you leave them they will mislead your servants and not beget except wicked one and disbeliever.

and the typical reaction of the layman shia is to defend these practices even if they don't believe in them. Usually they attack the person who makes these claims and like to sweep the whole thing under the rug.

It is obvious that enemies of shia Islam will use the weaknesses of shias against them. It does not change the reality of the matter, that those weaknesses are weaknesses. And very shameful ones. I have to practice taqya mostly because of the shias wrong practices and not because of the sunnis. And it's the same look i get from pretty much every non-muslim when they find out that i am muslim. It's as if i can read their minds saying: "oh so you believe it's ok to have sex with 9 year old girls?!?!", but they are not saying it.

the trick played by iblis and his army here is - if we look at the bigger picture of things - that the enemies of ahlulbayt are given info by their masters about the weaknesses of the shia sects. Iblis can not touch us unless we do wrong first. So they trick is that the salafi wahabi yazid army brigades rub in those weaknesses, which rubs the peoples egos and false pride more than anything. Suddenly the thing becomes more of honor rather than truth. Like a tribal pride, and people will reject the truth because it comes from people who are bad. But fact is that bad people can say truths. So, in this way iblis came up with the ingenious plan of keeping shias away from the truth by rubbing it in their own faces. People will avoid surrendering to the truth, because Salafi said so. Just look at this thread. People even refuse to address the matter because the video was made by salafis. But the problem is that the issue in the video is actual footage of shias. It was Imam Ali who is said to have said: "don't look at who said something, but rather what is said."

In this way by way of pride and hate, the shias are kept away from admitting their own problems. It is smart and cunning i must say. Keep them from doing what is right, by pointing it out to them in an annoying way. After so many years of deception iblis must have learned something!

I wrote a poem years ago trying to communicate this to people:

It is satirical and an artistic rendition of a conversation between iblis and mohamed abdulwahab:

Quote

Here is a conversation i imagine happened with the likes of Mohamed Abdel Wahab (MAW) and the Devil:

 

 

 

MAW: at your service devil, you know i'm your man pretending to be among the Muslims

 

Devil: yes you are a great service to me, and here i will reward you with women, money, power and all worldly needs you can imagine.

 

 

MAW: tell me your plan.

 

Devil: well, our enemies are your enemies, who are the muslims of course, as well as christians and jews, but let us focus on the muslims for now. that is your task, destroy islam from inside.

 

MAW: tell me more ..

 

Devil: i want you to follow exactly what i say, step by step so the plan comes true. don't worry about the muslims, most of them are stupid and the smart ones are few.

 

MAW: yes! yes! hurry, please tell me .. 

 

Devil: You come from a scholarly family, with a father of good repute and we shall use this to pretend like you are continuing on his pious path, while you are actually the opposite from the core. you will cause the islamic nation to rot from its core, so i will control the world more than ever before. and your descendants will benefit from this too.

 

MAW: wow that is amazing, thank you dear lord of darkness .. am at your service.

 

Devil: yes, listen closely .. i have no power to harm anybody, except when they harm themselves first, so you need not have a bad conscience! they deserve it!!! 

 

MAW: yes master, please continue .. you got me excited now.

 

Devil: well, their weakness is our strength, and so we will have an ingenious plan that almost nobody will every think of heheheheheheh  :shaytan:

 

MAW: tell me more!! i hate patience!!! i want it now!!! kill those muslims . i hate them!! i hate them i hate the prophet!!! and their god!!

 

Devil: yes yes .. my son .. so listen up .. as i told you their weaknesses are our strength and so who would know the weaknesses more than me?

 

MAW: yes i know you know it all .. 

 

Devil: yes of course you fool! i'm the one who whispered to them their mistakes, that they are following blindly .. soon you will have the muslims moving me from the stoning area in makkah and put me up on the mount arafa !!! 

 

 

MAW: really??

 

Devil: yes!! and already the people started calling upon all kinds people, other than Allah, so you will feed on this my friend!

 

MAW: really? how??

 

Devil: well, i will share with you the plan now ..

 

MAW: yes please go on .. let me sacrifice another human for you .. 

 

Devil: later son! later .. now listen to me ..

 

MAW: ok sir .. thank you 

 

Devil: so, you will make a new movement, and this movement will carry your name. while it is islamic on the outside, it is satanic from the inside .. it belongs to me and aims towards pulling the muslims towards me, and even all non- muslims away from Islam.

 

MAW: yes that is what we want!

 

Devil: so i will list you all mistakes and weaknesses the people who call themselves muslims perform, and all false traditions, that will be doors to conquering them. so you clothe your movement with those fundamental righteous teachings, that they miss, which will cause most people to follow you.

 

MAW: what a plan! you're a jinneus !! 

 

Devil: yup, that's what i am!

 

MAW: but how will this work? if they see us preaching the things that are wrong in their teachings, wont it give it all away? isn't that us showing what our secret weapons are?

 

Devil: no! quite the opposite. you will see that all of mankind suffers from pride issues. i control them this way. Our soldiers in your army and family will be so cruel and so ruthless, that actually hearing the truth from us, will make them go further away! 

 

 

MAW: you truly are a genius .. here let me do anything for you .. anything to please you ..

 

Devil: you will get the chance to please me .. just listen to me .. so as you continue down that path of putting the truth that they deviated in, in their face .. they go further away from it. they will reject the truth, because it comes from you. While those who see the truth in your teachings .. given by me .. will be drawn to your army and your control. very few will see through our plan and understand that even though we are right about some things, that our intentions are so bad HAHAHAHAHAHAH  :shaytan:  HAHAHAHAHAHHA !!! 

 

 

MAW:  :excl:  that is truly amazing dear master. thank you . thank you .. how can i thank you enough!

 

Devil: this world will be mine! i will soon control the entire arab peninsula through you and your family, so you can imagine how much i shall reward you. your family will have more money than you can spend! more gold than all camels can carry! more women and little boys for you to feast on .. you know how i love it when you sleep with little boys 

 

 

MAW: yes dear master .. it is a tradition we kept for you, as a sacrifice for you our lord ..

 

Devil: so this is just a taste of the plan, and how we shall proceed to use their weaknesses to our own benefit, and take ownership of their lost truth, and prevent anybody from getting it. this way we can assault them from all direction and they will have no helpers HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA  :shaytan:

 

 

MAW: yes amazing dear master .. amazing ! i am speechless  :cry:

 

Devil: yes my humble servant, and i will strengthen you with servants from all over the world, whom i have tutored in the exact same way. my christian priests, and jewish rabbis, who use the weaknesses of the people in the same way. and together you will take over the WORRLLLDDD!!!!

 

 

MAW: oooooh !! that warms my happiness .. here a drink to you dear devil .. gulp gulp gulp gulp .. oh how i love this buzz while talking to you  :wacko:

 

Devil: yes i will send you more wine and liquor than you can drink, don't worry about that!! and soon you will go on a killing rampage to slaughter all those muslim people as you please .. while using their religion as an excuse!

 

 

MAW: oh i can't wait!

 

Devil: yes! now go sleep and make sure to beat your wife, and treat your slaves badly .. and ... (sensored)

 

 

MAW: yes sayidi .. at your service .. i look forwards to more detailed protocols soon ..

 

Devil: yes, now get out of my face!

1. How we can interpret that the city mentioned in hadith is persian Isfahan?

2. there are only few jews present inside Iran currently/

3. the following is the hadith that mentions the fews:

Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said:

The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls.

حَدَّثَنَا مَنْصُورُ بْنُ أَبِي مُزَاحِمٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ حَمْزَةَ، عَنِ الأَوْزَاعِيِّ، عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ، بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ عَمِّهِ، أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ يَتْبَعُ الدَّجَّالَ مِنْ يَهُودِ أَصْبَهَانَ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفًا عَلَيْهِمُ الطَّيَالِسَةُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

Narrated Abu Hurairah:
"Some people among the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: 'O Messenger of Allah! Who are these people whom Allah mentioned, that if we turn away they would replace us, then they would not be like us?'" He said: "And Salman was beside the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), so the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) patted Salman's thigh and said: 'This one and his companions, and by the One in Whose Hand is my soul! If faith were suspended from Pleiades, then it would be reached by men from Persia.'"

Its very easy to verify such things, you just need to do a little research without being biased.

1. Its persian Isfahan since the same hadith gives a hint i.e they will be weraing persian shawls. And we know that Isfahan in famous in wolrd for its artwork like shawls, rugs, wall art etc. Isfahan golden era started during the shia safavid danysty. More on Isfahan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isfahan

2. This is how jews feel at city of Isfahan http://edition.cnn.com/2015/03/11/middleeast/iran-jews-esfahan/index.html

3. Hadith is from sahih muslim, so it should be authentic.

4. Many scholars are ahlul sunnah are from persia, whose books are spreading faith all over the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Persian_Sunni_Muslim_scholars_of_Islam

O Allah, we have never called them to what they claim, so do not take us into account fro what they say and forgive us for they claim.

My Lord do not leave upon the earth from them an inhabitant, indeed if you leave them they will mislead your servants and not beget except wicked one and disbeliever.

Great reply  by Ya Allah Madad. 

Imams have extraordinary power. That is OK. How does it benefit . Imams are for guidance. We have to avail it and learn from them .

Sis, you know very well that those are duas, not wishes, it's called Dua-e-Ariza and the intercession? Nonsense, we are not praying to them directly, rather we are asking the Imams to pray for us. Whoever did this video is ignorant, Sidnaq.

Look at this: http://www.duas.org/arizatoimam.htm 

There's nothing blasphemous about it, it is simply asking the Mahdi to pray to Allah for you.

Stop watching this garbage, we have warned you time and time again to stop. I have warned you to stop and suggested that you read books from Al-Islam.org. What ever happened to that?

I am not mad at you but I am mad at this disgusting and ignorant video. Nothing good comes from this flith, only suffering and fitnah. A waste of precious time, effort and brain cells went into this video.

Brother those who are writing letters to Imam are praying and asking him directly, not to Allah. Then he will pray to Allah directly for you. You pray to him then he will pray to Allah for you. This also shows they believe Imam in living under that well thats why they are putting letters to it, hpoing that they will reach to our Imam.

Read only books from Al-islam.org. Brother is it not like saying follow al-islam.org blindly and dont read books from other websites. WHY? Is everything that al-islam.org says is true and correct? And whatever others say are wrong?

and the typical reaction of the layman shia is to defend these practices even if they don't believe in them. Usually they attack the person who makes these claims and like to sweep the whole thing under the rug.

It is obvious that enemies of shia Islam will use the weaknesses of shias against them. It does not change the reality of the matter, that those weaknesses are weaknesses. And very shameful ones. I have to practice taqya mostly because of the shias wrong practices and not because of the sunnis. And it's the same look i get from pretty much every non-muslim when they find out that i am muslim. It's as if i can read their minds saying: "oh so you believe it's ok to have sex with 9 year old girls?!?!", but they are not saying it.

Such defense is because many ghullat beliefs are now part of fundamental belifs of shias. Like asking Imams for help, infallibility, divine messages, additon in adhan etc.

Shia Allama Mamqani wrote in Tanqihul Maqal (Volume 1, Page 334):

قال المامقاني في تنقيح المقال ج1 ص334 : قد نبهنا غير مرة على أن رمي القدماء سيما القميين منهم ، الرجل بالغلو لا يعتنى به ، لإن الاعتقاد بجملة مما هو الآن من ضروريات المذهب ، كان معدوداً عندهم من الغلو ، ألا ترى عدهم نفي السهو عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله والأئمة عليهم السلام غلواً ، مع أن من لم ينفي السهو عنهم اليوم لا يعد مؤمناً ، ولقد أجاد الفاضل الحائري حيث قال : رمي القميين بالغلو وإخراجهم من قم لا يدل على ضعف أصلاً ، فإن أجل علمائنا وأوثقهم غالٍ على زعمهم ، ولو وجدوه في قم لأخرجوه منها لا محالة

We have warned more than once that an accusation from the classical scholars, especially of the ones from Qum, of a man (hadith narrator) being ghali should not be taken into consideration. This is because overall what is considered among the fundamentals of the religion these days was considered Ghuluw by them. Do not you see that they counted denial of the belief that the Prophet (pbuh) and the Imams (as) can forget as Ghuluw, even though one who does not deny that they (as) may forget would not be considered a momin (believer) these days. And Ayatullah Fadhil al Haeri excellently put it, where he said: “Accusation by the classical scholars of Qum, of hadith narrators being ghali and their exiling them from Qum (on charges of ghulu) does not prove in principle their da’f (weakness/unreliability). For indeed, most of our scholars and their most trustworthy ones would have been considered ghali by them, and if they had found them in Qum then they would have definitely exiled them from it inevitably.”

Scholars should take the responsibilty and disown themselves from such acts/people and try to correct them from all platforms tv channels, newspapers, website etc. But I think currently they are also under taqqiyah. Because some scholars had raised voices against such acts in the past but were all killed by those extreme shias.

Like a tribal pride, and people will reject the truth because it comes from people who are bad. But fact is that bad people can say truths. So, in this way iblis came up with the ingenious plan of keeping shias away from the truth by rubbing it in their own faces. People will avoid surrendering to the truth, because Salafi said so. Just look at this thread. People even refuse to address the matter because the video was made by salafis. But the problem is that the issue in the video is actual footage of shias. It was Imam Ali who is said to have said: "don't look at who said something, but rather what is said."

Well said. Epic line.

Content is important not the title or who is saying this.

Same is the problem with many sunnis like brelvi sufis who also do not accept the truth about tawassul and istighasah since its coming from salafis.

This reminds me of following verse. Rum 31-32

[Adhere to it], turning in repentance to Him, and fear Him and establish prayer and do not be of those who associate others with Allah

[Or] of those who have divided their religion and become sects, every faction rejoicing in what it has.

actually i don't believe that making dua to others than Allah in form of supplication being a legitimate form of waseelah. but the point here is that sunis won't accept the shia point of view about the wilaya because many shias are insulting the sahaba. So the sunis will dismiss the notion because of ego again. They say "how can somebody insult them etc." instead of seeing what is the truth from objective reasoning. So likewise iblis uses the same tactics from the other way round to keep people away from the wilaya. Rub the truth in their face with bad manners and the people will reject the truth because of the annoying people, and not because of it making no sense.

Exactly ego issues. They all believe truth is only with us. Thats why they dont even listen/read to others stuff properly. And whenever they listen/read they listen only in order to refute them.

This is not at all a waseela. But I dont understand how people can fall in this tactic of iblees. While there are hundreds of clear verses on this issue of not invoke others than Allah in the form of dua.

Word wasela has been used only twice in Quran. But sadly people doing this are giving only importance to 5:35 and are totaly ignoring the other place 17:57.

Those whom they invoke seek means of access (waseela) to their Lord, [striving as to] which of them would be nearest, and they hope for His mercy and fear His punishment. Indeed, the punishment of your Lord is ever feared.

It means waseela is something else for which Allah swt is talking about in 5:35. Otherwise He would have not tauted them by saying those to whom you invoke besides Me, themselves seek means of access to their Lord.

Many people accept one part of Quran but not the other. May be thats why they fall into the trap of iblees.

oh my God praise the Lord!! this is the first time in the history of shiachat that somebody uses this obvious argument other than me. It's not like i invented the quran or something, but i certainly am willing to change any of my beliefs if it can be proved from the quran. 

This is beautiful masha Allah! I love it!

It's funny how waseela is documented in the hadiths to include pretty much every good deed, and the only thing we can prove in the quran that it is not, people say that it is it! Like, as you said exactly we have the word wasila written twice, and once it is clearly written in context to not making dua to others than Allah. And then ironically people make the word wasila synonymous with making duas to others than Allah. That is exactly 180 degrees from the meaning in the quran, and in my opinion is an insult to intelligence. I am glad that i finally found someone to discuss this with all thanks to Allah.

Prayer of Imam Ali reza a.s

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim.

O Allah, verily, i disassociate myself before you from the strength and power. There is no strength and power except with you. O Allah, verily, i seek refuge in you and disaasociate myself before you from those who claim for us what is not true for us. O Allah, verily i disassociate myself before you from those who say regarding us what we have not said about ourselves.

O Allah, to you belong the creation and from you is the provision. You do we worship and from You we do seek help.

Surah Al-Qamar, Verse 1:

اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ

The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder.

(English - Shakir)

Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 49:

وَرَسُولًا إِلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنِّي قَدْ جِئْتُكُم بِآيَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ أَنِّي أَخْلُقُ لَكُم مِّنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ فَأَنفُخُ فِيهِ فَيَكُونُ طَيْرًا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَأُبْرِئُ الْأَكْمَهَ وَالْأَبْرَصَ وَأُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَمَا تَدَّخِرُونَ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

And (make him) an apostle to the children of Israel: That I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I determine for you out of dust like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with Allah's permission and I heal the blind and the leprous, and bring the dead to life with Allah's permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what you should store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believers.

(English - Shakir)

Surah Ar-Rad, Verse 38:

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلًا مِّن قَبْلِكَ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ أَزْوَاجًا وَذُرِّيَّةً وَمَا كَانَ لِرَسُولٍ أَن يَأْتِيَ بِآيَةٍ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ لِكُلِّ أَجَلٍ كِتَابٌ

And certainly We sent apostles before you and gave them wives and children, and it is not in (the power of) an apostle to bring a sign except by Allah's permission; for every term there is an appointment.

(English - Shakir)

These are the prophets, now lets see other examples:

Surah An-Naml, Verse 40:

قَالَ الَّذِي عِندَهُ عِلْمٌ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ مُسْتَقِرًّا عِندَهُ قَالَ هَٰذَا مِن فَضْلِ رَبِّي لِيَبْلُوَنِي أَأَشْكُرُ أَمْ أَكْفُرُ وَمَن شَكَرَ فَإِنَّمَا يَشْكُرُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ رَبِّي غَنِيٌّ كَرِيمٌ

One who had the knowledge of the Book said: I will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye. Then when he saw it settled beside him, he said: This is of the grace of my Lord that He may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful; and whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul, and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is Self-sufficient, Honored.

(English - Shakir)

Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 65:

فَوَجَدَا عَبْدًا مِّنْ عِبَادِنَا آتَيْنَاهُ رَحْمَةً مِّنْ عِندِنَا وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ مِن لَّدُنَّا عِلْمًا

Then they found one from among Our servants whom We had granted mercy from Us and whom We had taught knowledge from Ourselves.

(English - Shakir)

Read the whole story till verse 82, when you reach to this sentence:

رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ وَمَا فَعَلْتُهُ عَنْ أَمْرِي

( a mercy from your Lord, and I did not do it of my own accord.)

Think on it.

Now lets see a tradition:

عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن مثنى الحناط عن أبي بصير قال: دخلت على أبي جعفر عليه السلام فقلت له: أنتم ورثة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله؟ قال: نعم، قلت: رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وارث الأنبياء، علم كما علموا؟ قال لي: نعم، قلت: فأنتم تقدرون على أن تحيوا الموتى وتبرؤا الأكمه والأبرص؟ قال: نعم بإذن الله، ثم قال لي: ادن مني يا أبا محمد فدنوت منه فمسح على وجهي وعلى عيني فأبصرت الشمس والسماء والأرض والبيوت وكل شئ في البلد ثم قال لي: أتحب أن تكون هكذا ولك ما للناس وعليك ما عليهم يوم القيامة أو تعود كما كنت ولك الجنة خالصا؟ قالت: أعود كما كنت، فمسح على عيني فعدت كما كنت، قال: فحدثت ابن أبي عمير بهذا، فقال أشهد أن هذا حق كما أن النهار حق

Translating the part I highlighted red: I (Abi Basir who is narrating the Hadith) said: "So you have decree (or power) over giving life to the dead, and curing the blind and lepers?" He (Imam Abi Ja'far Muhammad Al-Baqir (as)) said: "Yes, by the permission of Allah,"

This is found in Al-Kafi volume 1 page 470 hadith 3

Allama Majlisi called it's chain Hasan (Good) in Mir'at Al-Uqul volume 6 page 20

Mr.That is their belief. We can't force them our belief. And they have to for their belief and action. 

Our all effort should be how follow Prophet as and imams so that we won't commit sin. Just forceing others to believe how extraordinary power won't benefit us or others. 

A person values before Allah is how much he is away from sin and close to Allah.

Brother, thats why its word of Allah swt.

As a general rule important events/concepts are atleast mentioned twice in Quran. So that in case at one place if we understand incorrectly then the other place should correct and explain us. 

And thats why Quran also dont need any tafsir to explain its basic rules and concepts except only in some rare cases.

but it is exactly the other way round. First must be quran, and then to understand the hadiths, we must check quran first on every issue. Many if not most controversial issues are shown in various angles in the quran, so as you said there is already enough proof from the quran to make it clear.

More on Isfahan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isfahan

3. Hadith is from sahih muslim, so it should be authentic.

I have the following remarks on the post:

1. where does the arabic text of hadith mention the word Persian in it? (ie Faras)

2. The presence of hadith in sahih muslim needs its grading before a hadith can be judged tobe authentic or not

So what if there is a hadith? You also bring me a hadith from the Sunni's as if it will strengthen your case... I won't bring any sources yet, very powerful sources to swallow but let me start off by making you think...So if Ahlul Bayt a.s. can fulfill wishes, give wealth, control the universe like some say, decide who goes to heaven and hell...even worse, the names of Allah manifests them like one person said ....What is left? How are they different than Allah aza wa jal?!?! Don't give me the typical  "by the will" of Allah answer which so far I haven't had a person back it up.

The problem is that you consider it an absolute power, an absolute knowledge, an absolute infallibility. These are all shirk akbar. There have been always a minority of Ghali Shias who believed in an absolute power, knowledge or infallibility.

In fact the mainstream Shias consider great power, knowledge, infallibility for Rasulullah and then the twelve imams after him, not an absolute power, knowledge or infallibility. There is a big difference.

No Shia says that there is no difference between Rasulullah and Allah ! except the ghali mushrik ones.

What you say is a shallow and superficial perspective about the beliefs of Shias. If someone has a deep and unbiased knowledge about the Shia literature, he knows that your viewpoint is unrealistic and a bit naive.

but you shall not, unless Allah wills, the Lord of all the Worlds. (81:29)

Only the will of Allah is absolute and all other wills even the will of the greatest prophet, Rasulullah, and his greatest successors, the twelve imams, are based on the will of Allah.

That was not even worth a reply but I will, for the viewers to help them evade those shirky ways and so I don't the burden of "he didn't answer so he lost". This is the problem, you solve it (even though it already is solved). 

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

وما تشاءون إلا أن يشاء الله رب العالمين

صدق الله العلي الظيم

How do you connect a QURANIC VERSE that literally says  (وما تشاءون) "what you want/desire (for the lack of better words)  (إلا أن يشاء الله رب العالمين) can only be achieved by the will and permission of Allah a.w.  with what YOU said?

much of what is in this movie is a disgrace for shias, and used by their enemies to attack them. This includes:

- making dua for help to the imams, such as asking them for help concerning sickness, etc

- this making dua is often accompanied with fake images of the imams that people imagine and look to much like Christians look to images of Jesus and Mary for help.

- the self beating and flagellation that just makes the shias look so bad, and is not tradition of any prophet or imam.

- the propagation of untruths like the claim that the imam(s) manages all affairs of the world, and that because of them there is no chaos in the world - as said by the ex president of Iran. And that other scholar after him saying that all the keys of all matters are with the imam, that is just purely wrong.

 

It is sad that many shia will not tolerate and self criticism amongst those who call themselves shia, and will go to any length to defend their practices or mistakes. 

 

Let us see what people say to the following video that i have posted before and got no comment for. Here are people who call the shrine on a telephone to ask the imam reza for help. These practices are purely praying to others than Allah to me, and i don't see any tradition of ahlul bayt or quran or prophetic teachings in this. Just purely human pitfalls that come again and again through history. Please, anybody tell me what you think of the following hotline to imam reza for praying to him:

 

Thank God that all shia books are unanimous about praying only to Allah, making dua only to Allah, supplicating only to Allah, and the same goes with the Quran. Never did an imam or prophet pray to a martyred person for help, and the whole message of Islam is to keep that to Allah. So the one or two (literally) hadiths that contradict the countless truthful ones won't make any difference in this. True shias of ahl bayt will only pray to Allah.

The Imams have the Ability to heal by the permission of Allah and when we call out their names. We do it with pride. If you want to see a nice debate to what istigatha is then watch a 5hour long debate on YouTube between Sunni and Wahabi.
