Unni may refer to:
Knowledge and degrees of faith are open for women equally as open for men. Many women are much higher in knowledge and faith than thousands of men. Allah (SWT) Created Fatima (AS) who is higher in her knowledge and faith than all human beings except her father and her husband (SAWA). That proves that there is no gender discrimination at all in Islam.
No. There is no obligation to wear any cap while performing SALAH or reciting Quran. Women should obviously wear Hijab but there is no obligation on men to wear a cap or so. It is recommended for men who can to wear turban to do so while praying SALAH. No obligation at all to cover the head or wear a skull cap.
Shia Muslims and most of Sunni Muslims seek help from the Prophet and his Holy Progeny because of the order of Allah to all the believers to seek Waseela to Allah. Waseela ( means to Allah)(5:35). The Prophet and his Holy Progeny are the best Waseela (means to Allah).
Shia and most Sunni Muslims say : O Muhammad, O Ali help me. This does not mean that they are not seeking help from Allah, on the contrary,they are seeking help from Allah, with Waseela of Allah's most humble servants. We never claim that one can give us anything away from Allah. It is only Allah Who Grants us our wishes when seek. Seeking from Allah can be directly from Him, and better to seek through the Waseela which was ordered by Allah to seek through.
Prophets were mentioned in Quran seeking help from Allah through pious servants of Allah e,g, Prophet Sulaiman seeking help from Aasif ibn Barkhis to bring the throne of Bilqis immediately (Sura Naml, verses 38, 39 and 40).
Simply, the Shia narrations are taken from the Prophet (SAWA) through the most authentic source who are Ahlul Bayt (AS) while Sunni narrations are mixture from different sources including untrusted narrators like Abu Huraira who narrated that Prayers is invalid if you see a woman or a donkey or a dog. (Saheeh Muslim , V.4, P.228).
'Some Sunni narrations claim that the woman is like a goat (Al-Qurtobi 15:172).
It is good to continue to pray for guidance and to find the truth (as we all must do regularly!), since Allah answers those who sincerely pray for guidance. It is also good to follow whatever you know is true. Lastly, it is good to reflect on the Qur'an (I am sure you do that, but doing that more be helpful, as our understanding of the Qur'an often changes as we go throughout life).
The Qur'an speaks of some people other than prophets who receive inspiration or messages from God; for instance, the mother of Moses, who is told to put Moses in the river; or when the angel Jibra'il appeared to the Virgin Mary.
So in and of itself, receiving a message from God does not classify a person as a prophet in a traditional theological sense.
Sometimes, there is an expectation that prophets, by definition, are those who are supposed to take the message and then instruct others to act on it in a new way (such as to encourage people to board Noah's ark), or may present a revealed scripture; for instance, the Qur'an.
According to Twelver Shi'i hadith, the Imams had access to knowledge transmitted through God through various means, and this enabled them to serve as representatives of the Prophet's teachings, to better explain them according to the times, and to demonstrate their authority after the time of the Prophet (S) to those who doubted them.
However, they never claimed to be prophets and throughout Twelver Shi'i hadith, there is an emphasis that the Prophet Muhammad (S) is the final prophet. Rather, their role was to explicate the teachings of the Prophet (S) in the best and most accurate manner. They also did not provide a new scripture to the people. So they are not classified as prophets.
There is a good book in this regard called (Al-Nass wal Ijtihad النص والإجتهاد. By Sayyed Sharafuddin.
It is translated into English and available on many sites. https://downloadshiabooks.com/book/al-nass-wal-ijtihad/
'Innovations include :
1. Changing the Athaan and removing Hayya Ala Khairlanji Amal.
2. Changing the Wudhu to washing the feet against the Quranic order to wipe over the feet.
3. Changing the Salah by folding hands which never done by the Prophet.
4. Changing the Khums.
5. Changing the Hajj.
And many other changes which you can find in the above book.
No. There is no single narration that the Prophet ever led Taraweeh neither in Sunni nor in Shia books. Taraweeh was initiated in the year 14 after Hijra by Umar Ibn Al-Khattab as he himself called it a Bid'ah and said it is a good Bid'ah. (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Salat Al-Taraweeh.)
This topic has been addressed before, but very briefly, triple divorce means a husband uttering the divorce word ṭāliq three times, and the wife be irrevocably divorced.
The issue here is that in Islam, if a husband divorces a wife once, he can get back with her, and if it's a revocable (raj'i) divorce, he can do so during her 'iddah period. They can also get back together and remarry if divorce happens a second time, or after the 'iddah period.
However, on a third time, the husband cannot marry her again until she marries another man, and they consummates that marriage. Should the previous husband want her, she would then have to divorce this husband, observe 'iddah, and then remarry the previous husband.
This can be done only 3 times,which means on the ninth time, they can never marry again.
In some cultures, there are men who are employed to marry the divorced woman, consumate the marriage, and then divorce her so she can go back to her previous husband. They are called a muhallil (one who makes lawful".
In Shi'ah fiqh, this is all invalid and completely rejected.
In some Sunni circles, a triple divorce is invalid, and some are trying to reform this law.
In Shi'ah fiqh, there is no such thing as a triple divorce, and it will only be a single divorce, and that will only occur if all the conditions are met, and they are:
1. Wife is to have gone through a menstrual cycle, and not have been intimate with husband since ending of cycle. This means that husband must wait until wife has a menstrual cycle, finishes from it, and then he can divorce. Husband cannot divorce wife if she is in purity and he has been intimate with her.
2. It is done in front of a minimum of two just, righteous, pious, God-revering men.
3. The formula of the wording be done in formal Arabic, with correct pronunciation.
4. This is done willingly, by choice, and not forced or without intention.
Should these conditions be observed, the divorce with occur, but only once.
And Allah knows best.
Allah Has clearly ordered us in Quran ( Sura 59, Verse 7) to follow the Prophet (SAWA) , and the Prophet (SAWA) never prostrated on carpet but only on the clay or earth and said ( Earth was made for me as a place of prostration and purification) جُعِلَت ليَ الأرضُ مسجدا وَطَهررا)
We Shia, prostrate on the clay (Turba) simply because we follow the Prophet (SAWA).
We seek forgiveness for every believer in Allah, the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS). Muslims friends who were born in non Shia families and have high regards for Ahlul Bayt need our prayers to understand the real position of Ahlul Bayt in Islam as the divine leaders after the Prophet (SAWA).
Yes of course. There are authentic evidence in both Sunni and Shia books. You can find many Hadeeths in this regard in Wasaa'il al-Shia.V. 4, page 220. باب جواز الجمع بين الصلاتين دون عذر
You can also find many Hadeeths in Saheeh Muslim, Baab al-Jam' Bayn al-Salatain. باب الجمع بين الصلاتين
