Questions about the Islamic Revolution of 1979

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 02/08/2016 - 16:36

There were many acts of violence committed during the Islamic Revolution of 1979. I have heard first hand from someone that escaped with their family (they are of the Baha'i faith) that individuals and families that did not convert were killed.

1. Is this true? How do we respond to allegations that the Shia are violent and are taught to kill all non-believers?

2. What is the Shia perspective on the violence during the Islamic Revolution. Was it all justified?

Nafs-e-Mutmainnah

Assalam alaykum,

With due respect, we get to hear now and then from the pulpits that Imam Hussein a.s while doing jihad heard the call of ''Yaa ayyuhal nafsul mutmainnah.....(sura fajr v. 27-30) and so he put his sword in its sheath and stopped his jihad and yelled to the enemies to kill him nauzubillah and they all started attacking Imam as he stood there defenseless.

Isnt this an insult to both the loving creator and his beloved? Why is this so much repeated from the pulpits despite its inauthenticity?

please clarify .

Event of Karbala

Submitted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/27/2015 - 15:01

Salam maulana i have few questions pls help

1) in the event of karbala we often hear that janabe qasim was a groom for only one night. Does that mean janabe qasim got married on 9th moharram in karbala?

2) we know that imam hussain was martyred at asr time. We pray zohr asr together. So did imam not offer asr prayers?

And we do faka shiknee (breaking of faqa) at sunni's asr time but we dont pray zohr asr seperate. Then why is it like that? I didnt understand

Garden of Fadak

Asalam O Elikum.

I've a question about bagh e Fidq. I basically belong to the Shia sect, but after a detailed research on this matter I've found out (via Quran) that Fidq was to be distributed in 5 portions.

My question is, if this is in Quran then Bibi Fatima SA should have known that (most definitely). If she was aware of the distribution, why did she walked on to Abu Bakar RA to ask for it as inheritance? Because Bibi SA can NOT be wrong, so my question is, is this Hadith wrongly quoted in Sahih Bukhari and other major books or I interpreted the Quran wrong?

God's Justice In The Event of Karbala

Salamun Alykum,

How can we see Allah's Justice in Karbala? Like why didn't Allah do something when Imam Hussain was killed, Bibi Sakina was tortured..

Secondly, As Syeda Zaynab s.a says that I have seen nothing but beauty than why all crying and lamentations?

Was it Allah's Reza in Karbala?

I am Haunted by these doubts but I sincerely want reasonable answers.

jazak'Allah
