    Personal Happiness

    This reminded me of a beautiful hadith by Imam Al Hussain (as); "If calamities of time bite you, do not seek the refuge of the creatures. Do not ask anybody except God the Distributor of the sustenance. If you live for a long time and wander in this world from the West to the East, you will not find anybody who is able to give you happiness or remove your unhappiness". edit: Best of luck with your finals.

    Why did Hussain Revolt? Dr Adnan Ibrahim

    He ordered the slaughtering of Imam Al Hussain (as)-and his family and companions, had his head on a plate in his castle, and hit his teeth with his stick. What kind of intentions are you looking for, beyond his sick, filthy nature that was so apparent in his behavior during his cursed reign? Unlike you, I don't need to investigate someones intentions when they are openly fighting the Prophet and his family (as). I'm not here to love everyone. Islam is NOT a neutral religion. There is hell and heaven for a reason. And hell is not only designed for the mushrikeen and kuffar-but for the munafeeqin too. and, like someone once said, if God would forgive someone as vile and nefarious as Yazid, I'm pretty sure he would forgive me for sending Laa'n on him. People defending the killer of Husayn? Husayn? ela la'naat allahi alal qawm al dhalimeen.. May god save us from the blindness of the heart.

    I find it astounding that anyone would trivialize the severity of questioning the intentions of he who ordered the killing of the blessed grandson of the best human kinds to have ever placed foot on the surface of this earth. Really, really astounding. We dissociate ourselves and ask god to withdraw his mercy from XYZ. Basically "Allahome el'aan fulan w fulan w fulan (fulan: whoever is mentioned). We regard them (i.e Yazid) as god's enemies, and god curses the enemies of his prophet (s) and Islam in the holy book, so we practice what is written in the Quran. Point is, it is not cursing in the sense that offensive or vulgar words are used. Nor slander. That is what I'm trying to make clear. Don't understand your question. Difference of opinion? So some Sunnis believe Muawiya was in the wrong, and others believe Imam Ali (as) was in the wrong? Or they (mainstream) collectively believe Imam Ali (as) was right, but so was Muawiya?

    See Sal_the_man's answer below, in La'an, we dissociate ourselves from the enemies of the Prophet (s) and his ahlulbayt (as), meaning, "I dissociate myself from XYZ". I've used the word "curse" as a direct translation of La'an., because that it how it has been translated in the ayas I posted. In the Shia school of thought, there is the concepts of Tabbari (loving The Prophet (s), his ahlulbayt (as), the righteous companions, and righteous people) and Tawwali (dissociating from the enemies of God, his prophet (s), the ahlulbayt (as)). Maybe the word condemn would be better? i.e expressing complete disapproval. Hmm. I don't understand this. For one to be "more" right, the other has to be wrong. You can't have two in the right, fighting each other? It doesn't make sense to me. Could you perhaps elaborate? I would like to understand. Thank you.

    Most Shias regard Muawiya in the same light I spoke about above. I have personally never come across a Shia who regards him as righteous.-but again, as you say, there are different opinions. Although, I can almost guarantee you, that a large majority will tell you they don't look at Muwaiya as righteous, and would curse him (curse, again as in La'n. I am strictly against any form of vulgar abuse or slander). So Sunnis believe he was right in waging a war against Imam Ali (as)? Definitely understand your point. However, it would be very difficult to get any place without quoting hadith, which are of course considered authentic. Agree. As is mine Enshallah we will try to understand each other.

    Please bring references to what you are above claiming. According to the Shia school of thought, Muhammad Ibn al-Hanafiyyah, may god be pleased with him, supported Al Muhkhar al Thaqafi (ra) in his uprising against the killers of Imam Al Hussain (as). So if you were to tell a Shia, that Muhammed al Hanafiya defended Yazid, no one, would take you seriously. And let me correct you, the term Ahlulbayt does not include anyone who is in blood relation to the Prophet (s). Abu Lahab was the uncle of the Prophet. Is he also part of Ahlul bayt (as) then? The Ahlulbayt (as) include, the five people of the cloth, namely, Prophet Muhammed (s), Hazrat Fatima (as), Imam al Hasan (as), and Imam Al Hussain (as), in addition to the 9 infallible Imams (as). You don't really make much sense. On one instant, you say you abhor Yazid's actions. In the same breath, you say he was praised for his knowledge in Islam? You do realize , at best, how senseless this sounds? Only filthy people like Yazid would say Yazid was justified in fighting Imam al- Hussain (as), the sweet basil to the prophet, the man in which the prophet said is from him, the man, who the prophet said is the most beloved to the people of the heaven. In that case, may they be resurrected with the drunkard, whom they love. Bring me one respected scholar who even utters such a thing? No one. No one. Only Nawasib would say such a thing, for the hatred they have to the prophet (s) and his family. Imam Al Hussain (as) cursed plenty. Like the Prophet (s) cursed plenty. Like the Quran curses plenty. Well, then I suppose your view is that the Quran is severely lacking in Adaab? Seeing as cursing is part of the Quran, and God (swt) curses the hypocrites, who btw, are found among Muslims as well. Not all Muslims were great. Not all muslims are great. Not all muslims will be great in the future. Live with it.

    Mainstream Shia regard Muawiya as an enemy of Ahlulbayt (as)-and therefore also an enemy of Islam. Muwaiya fought Imam Ali (as) openly, which history testifies to, and in Shia books, we have a hadith which is also found in Sahih Al Bukhari,; "Prophet Muhammed (s) said; Loving Ali is a sign of belief, and hating Ali is a sign of hypocrisy". I don't have the references on me, I'm sure you may have come across it. Muawiya fought Imam Ali (as) in the battle of Siffin-in which many muslims were killed, including great companions. He cursed Imam Ali (as)-and ordered the cursing of him. He appointed his son Yazid, as caliph, knowing there were people who had the first authority to be caliph, who far exceeded Yazid in character and judgment, and who were righteous, something Yazid was not. I also know (i.e have read and heard-please correct me if I'm wrong), that Muawiya's actions and characters are questions by Sunni historians as well. To answer your question, yes Shia's do curse Muawiya (as in, La'an, and not slander or abuse). If you are interested in the details, and have some time on your hands, watch this; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHaGoerzUsg (or some parts of it at). The scholar from the video looks at Sunni references (and Shia too, if I'm not mistaken)- he has authentic sunni books with him, and provides volume, hadith number, author, commentator, date and place of publication-grading of the hadith, so those who want to check his words, are able to. This, from his English youtube channel; So, I suppose he is a medical doctor. Doesn't say much about his Islamic education. No problem. Perhaps I should have done some research on him before posting the video. Not my intention to offend. I am definitely interested, have watched half the video, and will enshallah complete it once I have more time. Mo: Plenty. The Prophet (s) cursed plenty. He also cursed the Jews. Check Sahih Al Bukhari. One hadith which I have heard sunnis bring, is that the Prophet (s) said "whomever curses the sahaba, curse him"-or something along those lines. I don't have the references. If you'd like to see it yourself, I'm sure you'd be able to find it. Please bring forth references that according to Ahl Al Sunna you are under no circumstances allowed to curse. If you can do that, that I will understand why you'd rather not curse-not even the filth Yazid. I honestly don't even know what to say... sigh.... la hawla wa la quata illa billah. What's the holy aya... when the ignorant addresses you then say peace? Well...peace then... Buut I must ask... why do you speak ill of Basshar al Assad? Why don't you simply just abhor his actions, and not, him as a person? You don't have knowledge of his intentions, nor does anyone else for that matter of sake... Rest assured. We curse the Shaytaan, we curse Fir'aun, we curse ALL oppressor, because, they are all cursed in the Quran! As the aya I posted above goes, 'ela la'naat Allah 'ala al thalimeen". Because the topic was Yazid (la), and not Allah (swt). When someone holds a lecture about God (swt), and spends the entire lecture cursing Yazid, then your question might be relevant. See answer above.

    Sure! (not sure how short I can make it though!) He explains that the sole reason Imam Al Hussain (as) revolted was to seek reform, to enjoy good and forbid evil and follow the tradition of his grandfather and father Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (which Imam Al Hussain (as) says "I came merely to seek reform, to forbid evil, enjoy good, etc etc.... and not to oppress nor cause mischief etc etc..." because the ummah had deviated from the path and that no one was forbidding evil. He further continues to say that the Ummayads, starting from Muawiya, and ending with last Ummayad caliph, Marwan bin Muhammad al Himar (he was known as Al-Himar (the ass), were all enemies of Ahlulbayt, with the sole exception of the rightly guided Abdul Aziz. The biggest enemy being Muawiya, who lived and died, cursing Imam Ali, and ordered Imam Ali to be cursed on the pulpits. He says, the Shafi'i scholar, Ibn Kathir, narrates, in his book, "al bedaya w al nehaya (the beginning and the end) that the ummayad caliphs were all Nawasib (enemies of ahlulbayt), with the exception of Umar (abdul aziz as mentioned above). He mentions a story in which a Sahabi went to the Prophet and asked for forgiveness, because he had killed a man after he had said "I believe in God", but that the Sahabi was sure the man only professed his faith out of fear of death. The Prophet was angered and said, leave! I will not ask for your forgiveness! We did not come to kill! He says, this man was a sahabi too (i.e sahabis weren't all righteous)! He fought in the way of Allah, but he killed an idolater who had professed his belief in God, and the Prophet did not ask for his forgiveness. What then of those who killed Al Husayn, carried his head on the spear and brought it in the castle of Yazid who then strikes the teeth of Al Husayn with his metal bar. He says, Ibn Taymiya, the lover of the Ummayds negates it, while the scholars all confirm this (i.e the incident), Al Tabarani confirms this, Al Dhahabi confirms this, al Tabarri confirms this, Abul Hajjaj al Mizzi, who is far more knowledgable in hadith than Ibn Taymiya, as per testimony of al Dhahabi (who is a Shafi'i historian and Mutahadith, and author of more than 100 books). He says, the ummah had failed to kill the Prophet so they killed his grandson and his brother, and he says the Prophet revealed the names of those who attempted to kill him on the night of Aqabah. He says, it is mentioned in Sahih, and the interpretations and explanations and all that is written to form an idea. He stressed on the importance to read upon those facts, as they are not taught to the general public. edit: These are the words of Dr. Adnan. Ibrahim. Not my own. The only point I am trying to make is that, as Sal_the_man said, cursing is mentioned by God in the Quran. -not only does God curse, but the angels curse, and all of mankind. If you wish to hold to a hadith which tells you not to curse, you are free to do so. Yazid has been cursed by both scholars and historians (shia and sunni). Not only that, he has also been called a kaffir by some (including scholars of the sunni faith). What was in their heart was on their tongues and practiced in action. Did you watch the video? Please do some reading, for your own good. Read upon the history of Yazid (la). Who, as Sal_the_man mentioned, killed the son of the daughter of the Prophet, and his family and companions. Refer to Ibn Kathir, Yazid was a drunkard, used to keep the company of both women and boys, was a fasiq and performed acts of incest. This is in sunni narrations. Read! While the internet is filled with references, don't expect to find every single thing online, in forums and on google. Yazid ordered the plundering of Madina (in the Battle of al Harra, which Sal_the_man mentions) where thousands of Muslims were slaughtered, girls and women were al brutally raped, and people were captivated and made slaves. Yazid attacked the Kabaa. God's house. May God curse him, curse those who pledged his alliance, curse those who know of his actions and love him, curse anyone who praises him and conceals his grotesque actions, black heart, and hatred for the Prophet and His family. I really don't understand why people are so offended by cursing the open enemies of God and his prophet. Dear one, Yazid shed the blood of him who the prophet said is from him ("Husayn is from me and I am from Husayn. Allah loves anyone who loves al-Hasan and al-Husayn. They are two of my distinguished descendants": see Al Bukhari's Al Adab al Mufrad (chapter, embracing children, and it has been graded as Hasn by Al-Albani). If Husyan is from the Prophet, and the Prophet is from Husayn, that means those who killed him, killed the prophet with him. May the ummah who strived and plotted for the killing of the Prophet's grandson be eternally cursed. أَلَا لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ عَلَىالظَّالِمِينَ

    And they say: Our hearts are covered. Nay, Allah has cursed them on account of their unbelief; so little it is that they believe (2:88). ...but when there came to them (Prophet) that which they did not recognize, they disbelieved in him; so Allah's curse is on the unbelievers (2:89). Surely those who conceal the clear proofs and the guidance that We revealed after We made it clear in the Book for men, these it is whom Allah shall curse, and those who curse shall curse them (too) (2:159). Those who reject Faith, and die rejecting,- on them is Allah's curse, and the curse of angels, and of all mankind (2:161). If any one disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge Hath come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together,- our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!" (3:61) Of such the reward is that on them (rests) the curse of Allah, of His angels, and of all mankind;-(3:87) ...but Allah has cursed them on account of their unbelief, so they do not believe but a little (4:46). ...or curse them as We cursed the violaters of the Sabbath, and the command of Allah shall be executed (4:47). Those are they whom Allah has cursed, and whomever Allah curses you shall not find any helper for him (4:52). And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell; he shall abide in it, and Allah will send His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement (4:93). Surely those who accuse chaste believing women, unaware (of the evil), are cursed in this world and the hereafter, and they shall have a grievous chastisement (24:23). Surely (as for) those who speak evil things of Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the here after, and He has prepared for them a chastisement bringing disgrace (33:57). Say: Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? (Worse is he) whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and more erring from the straight path (5:60). There's more. I hope this suffices. whoishussain is an absolutely brilliant campaign. May god bless those who keep the name of the Prophet (s) and his family (as) alive. Thank you for sharing.

    ~~~The Fashion Thread~~~

    Lol@ the chapstick conversation. Cute. You could buy those in round containers, and use your fingers to apply. I imagine it would feel less threatening to a guy's masculinity and manhood.
  13. I've noticed the further away (within reason of course lol) I put my alarm clock, the more likely I am to hear it and actually wake up. If I set my alarm and place it on my bed, more often than not, I don't really hear it.
