  4. I am developing a game about Palestine Resistance

    Fursan al-Aqsa - Old City of Jerusalem On this article I showcase the finished map of Jerusalem, which will be the 4th Mission of Fursan al-Aqsa's Campaign Mode, alongside some new progress on my game. https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_3.png It's time to protect the Holy Land, the Land of the Prophets and Messengers, the Land of our Ancestors. Zionist Forces are preparing a big strike against the Old City of Jerusalem, so it is up to you, Fidae, to protect it with your blood and soul. And if you die in this mission, Paradise will be your eternal bliss. Allah Akbar! After almost 20 days of extensive working, I finished the Map of Jerusalem, which is the 4th Campaign Mission of Fursan al-Aqsa. This is one of the biggest maps of my game, it's not a 1:1 replica of the real city, but I tried my best to make it look similar. I even found a way to convert Google Street View Panorama Images to Skybox Textures, to use them as a backdrop for the maps. The final results are good, as these custom skyboxes add a depth to the maps. https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Eu8dixuWQAE0A9Y.jpg https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Eu8e6G1VkAIko73.jpg Another Milestone for this project is that my game was selected for the Independent Games Festival this year, a long life dream which I finally achieved. Even though my game doesn't be selected as a finalist, but the fact of participating on the biggest event for Indie Games is for sure a milestone for any game dev out there! I thank Allah (God) for this and also thank you all who are following my game, those who are supporting me here and elsewhere. Jazakom Allah Khayr (May God give you all the best). https://igf.com/knights-al-aqsa-mosque Another very important achivement for me is that my game got noticed by the legendary Martin Hollis, the main programmer and director of the original Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64! My game, despite having a completely different story, plot and thematics, but, on it's heart, it is a love letter for Goldeneye 007. Martin Hollis noticed this and praised my game: https://twitter.com/martinhollis/status/1359189828173238275 https://twitter.com/martinhollis/status/1359190260173987846 https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/EtyMVMlWYAQBNN-.jpg Also, as I am close to finish the development of #FursanAqsaGame, I decided to replay the classics #Goldeneye007 and #PerfectDark (my greatest inspirations) on a #N64 #Emulator for #Android to get more ideas for mission objectives to make my game a trully Love Letter to Goldeneye007! https://www.mobygames.com/images/covers/l/6129-goldeneye-007-nintendo-64-front-cover.jpg https://www.mobygames.com/images/covers/l/287446-perfect-dark-nintendo-64-front-cover.png As I am playing these masterpieces, some cool ideas pop up into my mind, like destroying security cameras, sabotaging some israeli equipment, finding secret documents, planting bombs, invading israeli bases, disguising yourself, murdering a specific enemy, rescuing Palestinians, and so on. And here follows some screenshots of Jerusalem Map, I hope you like it. Next step I will be making a small gameplay teaser for this map, as I have done with the previous 3 maps. https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_2.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_4.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_7.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_9.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_10.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_12.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_13.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_14.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_18.png https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Fursan_al-Aqsa_-_Showcase_Jerusalem_22.png For more screenshots, please go here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/images Cheers and until next update. #FursanAqsaGame #UE4 #UnrealEngine #gamedev #indiegame #indie #3dsMax #MAYA #Autodesk #PalestineFree #Intifada

    Fursan al-Aqsa - Official Announcement Trailer - I'm NOT Terrorist https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/tribute.png This is the Official Announcement Trailer for my game, a remake of another trailer I made before (All the power to the people of Palestine). This is a promotional trailer which I will send to those Independent Games Festivals, in the hope of getting more visibility for my game and a publisher to help me release this game and reach a bigger audience, Insha Allah (God's willing). Also on this new trailer I showcase some new weapons, animations, and a glimpse of 3 new maps: al-Aqsa Masjid (Sniper Cutscene), Old Jerusalem (the Helicopter Chase Cutscene) and Gaza Strip (Jet Fighter Bombing Cutscene). I hope you like it. English/Portuguese version: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-official-announcement-trailer Arabic version coming soon. Cheers and until next update! #FursanAqsaGame #UE3 #UE4 #UnrealEngine #gamedev #indiegame #indie #3dsMax #MAYA #Autodesk #PalestineFree #Intifada #FreePalestine Here is the original MP4 video in HD 720p High Quality: https://mega.nz/file/ElE13CQL#5aqdKTMITN8cxinwF1G6GM7wXYRUyvIvKfwygLm7v3A

  8. I am developing a game about Palestine Resistance

    Fursan al-Aqsa - Official History Trailer - Ahmad al-Falastini In this article I showcase a brand new trailer for my game, the Official History Trailer which tells the history of the game's protagonist, Ahmad al-Falastini, a peaceful student who became a ferocious warrior thirsty for revenge. This trailer tells the history of Ahmad al-Falastini, the protagonist of Fursan al-Aqsa, how he turned from a peaceful student whose dream was to protect lives, into a ferocious warrior thirsty for revenge and blood. This is one of the best trailers I ever made for my game, it was a lot of work (10 days and almost 14 hours of rendering the animation in After Effects). I think this trailer gives to the player a better understanding about the protagonist's motivations to wage war against israel. Even tough this is a fictional history, however it is based on real facts and depicts the reality of this conflict. Be sure that there in Palestine you will find very similar histories of young people who had their dreams and their lives destroyed by a Genocidal Military State which does not respect any law or human rights. Here follows the trailer. Please watch it with attention and I am sure Ahmad's history will touch your heart: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-official-history-trailer-english https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/73/72158/Scene_07_00100.png Also I want to share here the interview I gave to BostonFIG, which was showcased last saturday on their channel. Please watch it for understanding better my personal motivations for making this game and other insights on the game's development process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vm6tql6s1rs Last, but no least, many people to whom I talked at BostonFIG, asked me the meaning of the game's title screen music. I explained to them and now I want to explain here also. This is the Palestinian National Anthem. It talks about the Palestinian Fedayeen Warriors and their struggle for liberation of Palestine. Fedayeen (plural of Fedaye) was the name given to the palestinian guerrillas who fought for the Freedom of Palestine (the word Fedaye means martyr, i.e those who sacrify their lives for a noble cause). They had a lot of popular support to such an extent that they were considered kinda super heroes among Palestinian People, they inspired a generation of Resistant Fighters and other Islamic Military Groups. The dream of any children was to become a Fedaye, the dream of any woman on that time was to marry a Fedaye (by the way there were even Palestinian Women as Female Fedayeen Fighters), the dream of any mother and father was that their son become a Fedaye. My father voluntereed as a Fedaye for almost 12 years before coming to Brazil. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/29/FatehMilitia.jpg https://www.pierre2.net/pictures/cp_fedayin_OLP.jpg So below follows the music's translation. Cheers and until next update! Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity With my determination, my fire and the volcano of my vendetta With the longing in my blood for my land and my home I have climbed the mountains and fought the wars I have conquered the impossible, and crossed the frontiers Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity With the resolve of the winds and the fire of the weapons And the determination of my nation in the land of struggle Palestine is my home, and the path of my triumphal (Palestine is my home, Palestine is my fire,) Palestine is my vendetta and the land of withstanding Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity By the oath under the shade of the flag By my land and nation, and the fire of pain I will live as a warrior, I will remain a warrior, I will die as a warrior - until my country returns Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity
  9. how to fully devote

    Assalamu alaikum, I've been struggling for couple of months with my heart and coming back to fully devoted to Allah. I, honestly, don't know what's the problem. For years I used to be detached from Dunya, in a very good "shape" and suddenly I lost it and can't go back. In the past, for years, I had a great connection with Allah. My tawakkul was on highest level, I had that smile and peace all the time. I feared nothing... What I've done so far to get back to that state of heart is pretty typical: at least 1 hour of Quran time, tawba and repentance, a lot of gratitude, salaat normal... But it's not working. I don't feel abandoned by Allah, it's not that dark, it's more like constant laziness to do more, lack of will and forgetfulness. I have a desire to devote to Allah fully but I have no idea how. Please, don't give me typical answers like: do your regular adhkar - please read above - that's not a question. Jazakallahu Khair
  10. Sikh's And Hindu's

    This is terrible!! Those Hindus should be ashamed of themselves!!
  11. Help needed regarding am I Muslim please

    Sister: technically speaking: we're all born Muslims!! But with regards to your question: would it be possible to go to a nearby Masjid, to see if they can give you a certificate saying that you have said THE SHAHADAH? OR: maybe there's an Islamic online service that can send you a certificate? I really don't know: these are just a couple of ideas. Also, can I say that I'm so sorry about the way your parents have treated you!! And sorry that this is such a late reply: how are things going now, with your future husband: I hope everything is starting to work out well for you. Please take good care.
  12. can a man advise a woman?

    thanks. its not as if i was saying she shudnt go outside, or cover her face, or saying every women shud wear a hijab..
  13. By Shaykh Muntasir Zaman Pause for a moment, and ask yourself: what are the greatest accomplishments of the Muslim civilization? At first thought, a number of things will probably come to mind, ranging from mathematics to medicine to architecture—perhaps even coffee.[1] But unfortunately we tend to overlook one of the greatest accomplishments, if not the greatest: the isnād system. That a person, till this day, can attribute a hadīth to the Prophet and then follow it with a list of authorities reaching back successively to the source is what scholars as early as Abū Bakr al-Thaqafī (d. 309 AH)[2] described as an exclusive accomplishment of the Muslim civilization.[3] The word sanad (lit. base)[4] refers to the chain of transmitters leading to the text of a hadīth while isnād refers to the mentioning of the chain.[5] Majority of scholars, however, use both terms interchangeably.[6] Al-Bukhārī (d. 256 AH), for instance, mentions, “Makkī ibn Ibrahīm—Yazīd ibn Abī ‘Ubayd Allāh—Salamah: I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) say, ‘Whoever lies about me should prepare his abode in the fire.’”[7] In this example, the names leading to the text form the sanad of the hadith.[8] The usage of isnād began simultaneously with the transmission of the Prophet’s hadiths. Companions like Abū Salamah al-Makhzūmī (d. 3 AH),[9] and Ja‘far ibn Abī Tālib (d. 8 AH),[10]who passed away during the Prophet’s lifetime,[11] transmitted hadiths citing the Prophet as their source.[12] Furthermore, Companions who were preoccupied with their daily responsibilities would take turns to attend the gathering of the Prophet. When the present partner would relate the day’s teachings to the absent partner, he would obviously preface his words with “The Prophet said so and so.”[13] The shortness of the chain­, i.e. direct transmission from the Prophet, makes this first rudimentary usage of isnād unnoticeable. During this time, transmitters were not required to disclose their sources. That is why we find Companions like Anas ibn Mālik, who lived during the Medinan period, relate incidents from the Meccan period without citing their sources.[14] This was not an issue because even the thought of lying about the Prophet was inconceivable to the Companions.[15] Shortly after the Prophet’s demise, the Companions exercised caution vis-à-vis hadiths,[16] with Abū Bakr spearheading the initiative.[17] When al-Mughīrah ibn Shu‘bah narrated a hadith about a grandmother’s share of inheritance, Abū Bakr asked for corroboration, which Muhammad ibn Maslamah duly provided.[18] ‘Umar ibn al-Khattāb also asked Abū Mūsā al-Ash‘arī for corroboration when he narrated the hadith about seeking permission thrice for entering a person’s house; in this case, Abū Sa‘īd al-Khudrī stood in his support.[19] The assassination of ‘Uthmān ibn ‘Affān (Allāh be pleased with him) in 35 AH, later described as the strife (Fitnah), marks a major shift in the course of Islamic history.[20] Until the events that led to the tragic incident, there was considerable stability throughout the Muslim world.[21]Driven by a thirst to bolster their political and theological views,[22] people thereafter began to fabricate hadiths, which prompted scholars to exercise even further caution. Recounting this delicate phase, Ibn Sīrīn (d. 110 AH) explains, “In the early period, no one would ask about isnād. But when the strife[23] occurred people would say, “Name for us your sources.”[24] It is understood from Ibn Sīrīn’s words that the practice of citing one’s source, or isnād, for a hadīth existed before the Fitnah, but was not a requirement—it was within the discretion of a transmitter.[25] During the first century AH, the isnād system had fully developed and formed part and parcel of the transmission of hadiths.[26] Until a hadith was supported by an isnād, it held no weight in the sight of Hadīth scholars.[27] In this respect, ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Mubārak (d. 181 AH) made the proverbial remark, “Isnād is part of religion. Were it not for isnād, a person could say whatever he wanted. If you ask him, ‘Who told you this?’ He cannot reply.”[28] Sufyān al-Thawrī (d. 161 AH) said, “Isnād is the weapon of a believer. When he is not equipped with his weapon, how will he combat?”[29] The emphasis scholars placed on isnād in the field of Hadīth had rippling effects on other disciplines, like Qur’ānic exegesis, jurisprudence, history, and poetry. The leading exegete, Ibn Jarīr al-Tabarī (d. 310 AH), for instance, when quoting an opinion on the commentary of a verse, couples it with a chain of transmission that traces back to the source.[30] The extent this emphasis permeated even the most mundane subjects is at times unbelievable. A collection of stories about love entitled “Masāri‘ al-‘Ushshāq” where the author, Abū Muhammad al-Sarrāj (d. 500 AH), painstakingly cites lengthy chains of transmission is a case in point.[31] An argument has been put forward for the usage of isnād before the advent of Islām, in an attempt to negate the notion that it is an exclusively Islāmic accomplishment. To this end, examples are adduced from pre-Islāmic poetry,[32] Jewish scripture[33] and Hindu literature.[34]These examples, however, are not substantive; there is a stark contrast between the isnāds employed in these examples and how Muslims used isnāds. The fifth century Andalusian polymath, Ibn Hazm (d. 456 AH), explains what is meant by the exclusivity of isnād among Muslims.[35] From six forms of transmission, he writes, three are exclusive to Muslims. The third form deserves particular attention, “Transmission from the Prophet via reliable narrators, each disclosing the name and lineage of the informant, and each of known status, person, time, and place.”[36] More simply put, Muslims may not have been the first to use isnād per se—for argument’s sake—but they were definitely the first to give it value by providing unbroken chains and documenting detailed accounts of the narrators, better known as the field of al-Jarh wa al-Ta‘dīl (accreditation and criticism). After all, what use is a list of narrators when nothing is known about them save their names? The Muslim civilization is truly unrivalled in its documentation of the biographical information of Hadīth transmitters. Aloys Sprenger (d. 1893 CE), the celebrated Western academic and critic of Islam, could not help but acknowledge this unparalleled accomplishment. He writes: The glory of the literature of the Mohammedans is its literary biography. There is no nation, nor has there been any which like them has during twelve centuries recorded the life of every man of letters. If the biographical records of the Musalmans were collected, we should probably have accounts of the lives of half a million of distinguished persons, and it would be found that there is not a decennium of their history, nor a place of importance which has not its representatives.[37] Before concluding, it will be beneficial to address two issues. First, as the science of Hadīth developed, a hadīth was identified with its isnād and not its text (matn). [38] The growth of isnāds was a natural outcome of transmission: assuming one Companion imparted a hadith to five students who in turn did the same, etcetera, the number of routes would have increased exponentially. Through the process of transmission, therefore, the number of isnāds multiplied without an increase in the number of texts.[39] Consequently, when ‘Abd al-Rahmān ibn Mahdī said, “I know thirteen hadīths via al-Mughīrah ibn Shu‘bah from the Prophet regarding wiping on the socks,”[40] he was referring to a single text transmitted through thirteen different channels.[41] Keeping this technicality in mind will allow us to understand what scholars meant when they described the staggering number of hadīths they knew, such as al-Bukhārī’s memorization of one-hundred thousand authentic hadiths[42] or Ahmad ibn Hanbal’s compilation of his Musnad from a pool of seven-hundred thousand hadīths.[43] Furthermore, apart from Prophetic hadiths, included in these large numbers are the statements of the Companions and Successors.[44] Second, simply citing a chain of transmission for a report, be it a hadith or otherwise, does not necessitate its authenticity. This is more so in the case of books like Ibn Jarīr al-Tabarī’s Tārīkh al-Umam wa al-Mulūk—a primary source for subsequent historians—where the author gathers all available reports as transmitted to him and then consigns the responsibility of analyzing the chains of transmission to the reader.[45] But at the same time, it should be remembered that the isnād system, as Anwar Shāh al-Kashmīrī (d. 1933 CE) would often remind his students, was formally instituted to prevent the inclusion of extra-Islamic material, not to remove established Islamic teachings.[46] https://www.darultahqiq.com/isnad-system-unbroken-link-prophet/ [1] See: 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World, pp.12, 64, 198. [2] Al-Baghdādī, Sharaf Ashāb al-Hadīth, p.40. On the identity of Abū Bakr al-Thaqafī, see: Abū Ghuddah, al-Isnād min al-Dīn, p.23. Al-Thaqafī relates the idea of exclusivity from an earlier unidentified source. Muhammad ibn Hātim ibn al-Mufażaffar and Abū Tālib al-Makkī (d. 386 AH) have made similar remarks [al-Baghdādī, Sharaf Ashāb al-Hadīth, p.40; al-Makkī, Qūt al-Qulūb, vol.1, p.385]. I have yet to locate Muhammad ibn Hātim’s exact date of demise. Thus far, the following is some available data: (1) he reportedly narrates from Yahyā ibn Ma‘īn (d. 233 AH) [al-Bayhaqī, Shu‘ab al-mān, vol.4, p.362]; (2) Abū al-‘Abbās al-Daghūlī (d. 325 AH) [Al-Baghdādī, Sharaf Ashāb al-Hadīth, p.40] and Halīm ibn Dāwūd al-Kashshī (d. 357 AH) [Ibn Mākūlā, al-Ikmāl, vol.2, p.492] narrate from him. [3] Ibn Hibbān, al-Majrūhīn, vol.1 p.30; al-Hākim, al-Mustadrak ‘alā al-Sahīhayn, vol.1, p.41; al-Kattānī, Fahras al-Fahāris, vol.1, p.80. [4] Ibn Jamā‘ah, al-Manhal al-Rawī, p.30. There are three possible linguistic origins for the term sanad: elevation/raise, base/authority, and harshness/strength. See: al-Jawnfūrī, Nawādir al-Hadīth, p.37. [5] Al-Thanawī, Kashfshāf Istilihāt al-Funūn wa al-‘Ulūm, p.984; Abū Ghuddah, al-Isnād min al-Dīn, p.14. [6] Ibn al-‘Ajamī, Hashiyah ‘alā Tadrīb al-Rāwī, vol.3, p.89. For more on both terms, see: al-Suyūtī, Tadrīb al-Rāwī [with editor’s footnotes], vol.2, pp.31-33; al-Qārī, Sharh Sharh al-Nukhbah, pp.159-160; al-Jawnfūrī, Nawādir al-Hadīth, pp.37-38; Tāriq ibn ‘Awad Allāh, Sharh Lughat al-Muhaddith, pp.62-63. Be it as it may, as Shams al-Dīn al-Sakhāwi (d. 902 AH) explains, this is a flexible matter. See: al-Sakhāwī, Fath al-Mughīth, vol.1, p.23. [7] Al-Bukhārī, al-Jāmi‘ al-Musnad al-Sahīh, vol.1 p.33. [8] Abū Ghuddah, al-Isnād min al-Dīn, p.14. [9] Al-Tirmidhī, al-Sunan, vol.5, p.414; cf. al-Mizzī, Tuhfat al-Ashrāf, no.6577. [10] Ahmad, al-Musnad, vol.3, p.262; cf. Ibn Hajar, Ithāf al-Maharah, vol.4, p.75/Itrāf al-Musnid al-Mu‘talī, vol.2, p.208. [11] In Tadrīb al-Rāwī, Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suyūtī dedicated chapter 92 to the hadiths of those Companions who passed away during the Prophet’s lifetime. See: al-Suyūtī, Tadrīb al-Rāwī, vol.5, pp.635-636. He is said to have also authored a book on the subject. See: Hājī Khalīfah, Kashf al-Zunūn, vol.2, p.1683. [12] Fallātah, al-Wad‘ fī al-Hadīth, vol.2, pp.15-19. [13] See, for instance, al-Bukhārī, al-Jāmi‘ al-Musnad al-Sahīh, vol.1, p.29; al-A‘żamī, On Schacht’s Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence, p.155. [14] Fallātah, al-Wad‘ fī al-Hadīth, vol.2, p.19. [15] Al-Barā’ ibn ‘Āzib said, “We did not hear from the Prophet everything we narrate from him directly. We heard from him, and our companions would also narrate to us [from him]. But we would not lie.” See: Ahmad, al-‘Ilal wa Ma‘rifat al-Rijāl, vol.2, p.410. Anas ibn Mālik said, “By Allah, we would not lie. We did not know what lying was.” See: al-Fasawī, al-Ma‘rifah wa al-Tārīkh, vol.2, pp.633-634. For a study of the alleged reports of fabrication during the Prophet’s lifetime, see: Abū Ghuddah, Lamahat, pp.56-65. [16] On the report of ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib taking an oath from a narrator before accepting his hadiths, see: al-Bukhārī, al-Tārīkh al-Kabīr, vol.2, p.54. [17] Al-Dhahabī, Tadhkirat al-Huffāż, vol.1, p.9. [18] Al-Tirmidhī, al-Sunan, vol.3, p.491. [19] Mālik, al-Muwatta’, vol.5, p.1403. For an important clarification on these and other similar reports, see: al-Suyūtī, Tadrīb al-Rāwī, vo.2, p.188; al-Sibā‘ī, al-Sunnāh wa Makānatuhā fī al-Tashrī‘ al-Islāmī, pp.85-89. [20] Abū Ghuddah, Lamahāt, p.73. [21] See: Mullā Khātir, Bid‘at Da‘wā al-I‘timād ‘alā al-Kitāb Dūn al-Sunnāh, p.18. [22] Mustafā al-Sibā‘ī enumerates seven factors that prompted the fabrication of hadīths. See: al-Sibā‘ī, al-Sunnah wa Makānatuhā fī al-Tashrī‘ al-Islāmī, pp.96-105. [23] There is considerable debate on the interpretation of ‘Fitnah’ in the words of Ibn Sīrīn. Some scholars opine that it refers to the assassination of ‘Uthmān ibn ‘Affān. See: Abū Ghuddah, Lamahāt, p.73. Based on a statement of Ibrāhim al-Nakha‘ī that people only began asking for isnād during the era al-Mukhtār ibn Abī ‘Ubayd al-Thaqafī (d. 67 AH), some argue for a later date. See: Ahmad, al-‘Ilal wa Ma‘rifat al-Rijāl, vol.3, p.380. With variations on the specific date, many contemporary scholars agree that fabrication began around the year 40 AH. Mujīr al-Khatīb explains that sparks of fabrication began during the period of the Successors when the first wave of trials and innovations surfaced; thus, leaving the date abstract so as to include the various opinions is more preferable. See: al-Hasanī, Ma‘rifat Madār al-Isnād, vol.1, p.385. For a study of Orientalist views on the date of the origins of isnād, see: al-A‘żamī, Studies In Early Hadīth Literature, pp.216-217/On Schacht’s Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence, pp.166-168; Siddiqi, Hadīth Literature: Its Origins Development and Special Features, pp.79-80. [24] Muslim, Introduction to his Sahīh, p.11. [25] Al-A‘żamī, Studies In Early Hadīth Literature, p.217. [26] Ibid., p.213. [27] See: Abū Ghuddah, Lamahāt, p.145. Despite the weakness of a hadith’s chain of transmission, scholars at times would authenticate its contents due to external factors, like inherited practice. For more on this, see: al-Kawtharī, al-Maqālāt, pp.75-78; Abū Ghuddah, al-Ajwibah al-Fādilah, p.228 f.; Brown, Did the Prophet Say It or Not? The Literal, Historical, and Effective Truth of Hadīths in Early Sunnism, p.277; also see Haydar Hasan’s treatise in: al-Nu‘mānī, al-Imām Ibn Mājah wa Kitābuhū al-Sunan, pp.86-90. This brings to mind the priceless observation of Anwar Shāh al-Kashmīrī, “It [Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalānī’s judgment] is premised only on rules while al-Tirmidhī’s assessment is based on sense and sound intuition, and, truly, this is knowledge. And [rigid] rules are a blind man’s walking stick.” See: al-Kashmīrī, Fayd al-Bārī, vol.6, p.216/vol.4, p.130. But in the same breath, another piece of advice should not escape our attention, “Do not be like the one to whom it is said: you remembered one thing, but you forgot many things.” See: Ibid. [al-Mīrathī, al-Badr al-Sārī], vol.4, p.130. [28] Muslim, Introduction to his Sahīh, p.11. [29] Al-Baghdādī, Sharaf Ashāb al-Hadīth, p.42 [30] Abū Ghuddah, Lamahāt, pp.143-145. [31] See: al-Sarrāj, Masāri‘ al-‘Ushshāq; Siddique, Hadīth Literature, p.84. Scholars like al-Jāhiz (235 AH), Abū al-Faraj al-Asfahānī (d. 356 AH), and Ibn al-Jawzī (d. 597 AH) even cite isnāds for light hearted anecdotes. See: al-A‘żamī, On Schacht’s Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence, p.154. [32] Al-Asad, Masādir al-Shi‘r al-Jāhilī, pp.255 f.; al-A‘żamī, Studies In Early Hadīth Literature, p.212. Schoeler negates the possibility of isnāds being used by pre-Islāmic poets. See: Cook, The Opponents of the Writing of Tradition in Early Islam, pp.511-512. [33] Horovits, Alter Und Ursprung des Isnad, Der Islam, VIII, pp.39-47; Cook, The Opponents of the Writing of Tradition in Early Islam, pp.510– 512. Horovits did not provide evidence to show that these chains were not later fabrications. He does, however, write, “In the Talmudic literature, there is no idea of a chronological method, and the oldest extant work attempting such an arrangement was composed after 885 AD—more than a century later than the earliest Islamic work on isnād-critique. From this fact, and from the fact that the important Jewish works had been composed in the Islamic dominions, it may be inferred that the historical interest was due to the Islamic influence [emphasis mine].” See: Horovits, Alter, p.47; Siddiqi, Hadīth Literature, p.81, 150. [34] See: Siddiqi, Hadīth Literature, pp.78-79, 81. [35] Ibn Hazm, al-Fisal, vol.2, pp.67-70. [36] Ibid. [37] Sprenger, A Biographical Dictionary of Persons Who Knew Mohammad, vol.1, p.1. There is a degree of exaggeration in these figures, but there is no doubt that the Muslim civilization is peerless in this accomplishment. See: Abū Ghuddah, Lamahāt, p.163. [38] Abbott, Studies in Arabic Literary Papyri II, p.66; Brown, Hadīth, p.219. [39] It is difficult to determine the exact number of individual hadiths. Nevertheless, Sālih Ahmad al-Shāmī gathered the hadiths of 14 major Hadīth compilations: the six canonical books, Muwatta’ Mālik, Musnad Ahmad, the Sunans of al-Dārimī and al-Bayhaqī, the Sahīhs of Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibbān, al-Mustadrak of al-Hākim, and al-Mukhtārah of al-Diyā’ al-Maqdisī. In total, he gathered 114,194 hadīths, and after removing repetitions, there remained 28,430 hadīths. It should be noted that he did not regard the narration of two different Companions for an identical hadith as a repetition. See: al-Shāmī, Ma‘ālim al-Sunnah al-Nabawiyyah, p.9. [40] Al-Rāzī, al-Jarh wa al-Ta‘dīl, vol.1, p.261 [41] al-A‘żamī, Studies In Early Hadīth Literature, p.302. [42] Al-Baghdādī, Tārīkh Baghdād, vol.2, p.340. [43] Abū Musā, Khasā’is al-Musnad, p.21. [44] Shākir, Footnotes on Khasā’is al-Musnad, p.21; Abū Ghuddah, Footnotes on Mabādī’ ‘Ilm al-Hadīth wa Usūluh, p.55; al-A‘żamī, Studies In Early Hadīth Literature, p.303. [45] See: al-Tabarī, Tārīkh al-Umam wa al-Mulūk, vol.1, pp. 7-8; al-Kawtharī, al-Maqālāt, p.404. Ibn Hajar writes, “Most Hadīth scholars of the past—from 200 AH onwards—believed that citing a hadith with its chain of transmission absolved them of the responsibility [of analyzing it].” See: Ibn Hajar, Lisān al-Mīzān, vol.4 p.125; cf. ‘Awwāmah, Footnotes on Tadrīb al-Rāwī, vol.3, pp.519-520. Zayn al-Dīn al-‘Irāqī explains that although citing a hadith alongside its problematic chain without expounding on its defects is reprehensible, to do so without citing its chain at all is worse. See: al-‘Irāqī, Sharh al-Tabsirah wa al-Tadhkirah, vol.1, p.313; Brown, Did the Prophet Say It or Not? The Literal, Historical, and Effective Truth of Hadīths in Early Sunnism, pp.281-282.

  21. Is a Sunni allowed to marry Shia?

    it depends.. why? because as a sunni you wouldnt want your kids to take on shia beliefs and vice versa... its better for peace/calm in the family and one less thing to argue about..
  22. TLDR: twitter discussion, can a man advise a woman to wear more modest clothes if she is wearing a hijab. Long story: so i cant remmeber what the original tweet was about - but i posted 'i have seen women who wear hijab but wear tight clothes, and advised them to NOT do this i..e dont wear tight clothes'. a (revert) took offence to that and said who am i to tell a woman what to wear or not... I replied with hadeeth where if you see something wrong use force, if u cant use words, if not walk away, also how teaching good things gives you rewards... she also in the discussion accused me of being a pervert because i am looking at women.. (i mean come on, if i was a pervert, i wouldnt have advised women to wear modest clothing, i would be happy as they are!!) she said i should lower my gaze instead of advising women to be more modest... but Allah says to MEN to lower gaze AND WOMEN to dress modestly.. i also told her she is SLANDERING me which is a sin, as she doesnt know me personally to say i am a pervert.. (She didnt heed that warning!) then it dragged on a bit and then i said PROPHET Muhammed (pbuh) was a man, she said but you are not a prophet... then i said IMAMS are men who preach.. and then she said 'you are not imam'. and then I asked her to ask her local imam, and then next day she said she had and he agreed with her, i replied with so post screenshots, first her reply was its another lang, so i said i will use google translate, then she changed her story to 'i cant be bothered, i have better things to do' (even tho she had been replying to almost every tweet of mine! so in the end i just ended it as she wasnt listening to me.. i dont know whats wrong with people? (Unless i am wrong here) - it was a general comment from me as a FYI to women who wear tight clothes with hijab so they can rectify their behaviour and i get some reward.. :/
  23. i consider that dream to be a warning i think - something along the lines of its end time, so the conclusion i made is we should (or i should) do good things lest there is no more time or something..
  24. El Islam es el camino de la Gloria y la dignidad Cuando creó Dios a los humanos, les ordenó postrarse ante Él: “Y, ciertamente, os hemos creado y luego os dimos forma; y luego dijimos a los ángeles: “¡Postraos ante Adán!” -y se postraron [todos] excepto Iblis, que no fue de los que se postraron.” [Al-Aaraf:11] Por lo tanto, Dios creó al ser humano, lo dignificó y lo prefirió desde el principio a muchas de Sus otras criaturas. Dios alabado sea, dijo: “Pues, en verdad, hemos honrado a los hijos de Adán, y los hemos llevado por tierra y por mar, y les hemos dado sustento de las cosas buenas de la vida, y les hemos favorecido por encima de gran parte de Nuestra creación.” [Al-Isra’:70] El ser humano es un ser dignificado y preferido de manera intrínseca. Dios lo prefirió y lo dignificó con lo siguiente: 1. La dignidad y la preferencia en su complexión. Dios, glorificado sea, dijo: “En verdad, creamos al hombre en la mejor constitución.” [At-Tin:4] 2. La dignidad y la preferencia en la puesta de la tierra y el mar al servicio del ser humano. 3. ... 4. ... Vamos a leer el resto de este artículo muy importante y necesario para conocer cómo el Islam garantiza la dignidad verdadera del ser humano. https://www.path-2-happiness.com/es/el-camino-de-la-gloria-y-la-dignidad ♥️Conoce a la grandeza del Islam♥️ Alhamduli Allah por ser musulmanes #El_camino_de_la_Gloria_y_la_dignidad #El_Camino_de_la_Felicidad
  25. ¿Qué sabes sobre Jesús y María en el Islam? ¿Cómo es la fe de los musulmanes en Jesús y María? ¿Qué es la posición de María en el Corán? Vamos a ver... Uno de los seis principios de la fe en el Islam es creer en todos los Profetas y Enviados de Al-lah, la paz sea con ellos, dice Al-lah: {El Mensajero y sus seguidores creen en lo que le fue revelado por su Señor. Todos creen en Al-lah, en Sus Ángeles, en Sus Libros y en Sus Mensajeros. No hacemos diferencia entre ninguno de Sus Mensajeros. Y dicen: Oímos y obedecemos. Perdónanos Señor nuestro, pues ciertamente a Ti volveremos.} [Corán 2:287] Esta enseñanza divina debe ser aprendida por todo creyente, lo que significa que él amará y respetará a todos los Profetas sin excepción. Esta es una de las razones por las que los musulmanes creemos en Jesús el hijo de María, la paz sea con ambos, como uno de los Profetas y Enviados de Al-lah. En el Corán encontramos en la Sura “El Consejo”: {Dispusimos para vosotros la misma religión [monoteísta] que le habíamos encomendado a Noé, y que te revelamos a ti [en el Corán] y que le encomendamos a Abraham, Moisés y Jesús, para que seáis firmes en la práctica de la religión, y no os dividáis en ella. Pero a los idólatras les parece difícil aquello a lo que tú los invitas [al monoteísmo]. Al-lah elige [para que acepte la fe] a quien quiere, y guía hacia Él a quien se arrepiente.} [Corán 42:13] En el Islam también se habla acerca de María, madre de Jesús, la paz sea con ambos, quien tiene una posición elevadísima, tanto así que una Sura completa del Corán lleva su nombre, la número 19, en la que se relata su decencia, castidad, decoro y recato; además, hay más de 83 Aleyas en la Sura la “Familia de Imran”, la número tres, en las que se habla sobre su veracidad y la de su hijo, es decir, que María y Jesús, la paz sea con los dos, son parte del plan de Dios y merecen respeto como creyentes. Vamos a ver este vídeo que presenta un resumen muy importante y interesante con las evidencias del Corán y la Sunna. http://www.global-minbar.com/es/Área-de-la-fe-Jesús-y-María-en-el-Islam ♥️Somos musulmanes y amamos a Jesús y María ♥️ #Jesús_y_María_en_el_Islam #sermones_islámicos #El_Minbar_Global #vídeos_islámicos
  26. - ¿Injusticia? - Los judíos, para mostrar lo que pretenden que es su patrimonio en Jerusalén, humillaron a las iglesias y a los cristianos allí. - La historia de Jerusalén es muy impresionante, contiene todos los conflictos entre las religiones celestiales, y de lo que se dice sobre Jerusalén es que fue destruida dos veces, y asediada 23 veces, y atacada unas 52 veces, e invadida 44 veces, y aún las religiones celestiales siguen esperando que ocurran en ella grandes batallas, pues es de verdad la tierra de las epopeyas, pero me extrañó lo que dices… fue Reino Unido quien la entregó a los judíos, ¿dónde está la injusticia en esto? - Desgraciadamente sí, pero lo que quieres decir y -lo que se llama Declaración de Balfourtenía motivos políticas y grandes conflictos. - ¿Cómo es eso? Y ¿por qué motivos? - De los motivos: la participación del Reino Unido en la primera guerra mundial(1914-1918) y necesitaba el apoyo judío(político y científico) durante esta guerra, al mismo tiempo el movimiento sionista estaba buscando apoyo para establecer un país para la nación judía en Palestina - ¿Intercambio de beneficios únicamente?

  27. ¿Qué sabes del día del viernes? ¿Cuáles son sus prescripciones? ¿Cuáles son sus sunnas y obras recomendables? Vamos a ver... El mejor día en el cual sale el sol es el Viernes. En él Allah creó a Adán, y será el día del Juicio. Es una fiesta para los musulmanes, y por eso se han impuesto algunas cosas en él, por ejemplo: el Sermón del Viernes, bañarse, perfumarse, salir con la mejor ropa en el mejor estado, pronunciar al takbir (decir Allahu Akbar "Dios es el más grande") saliendo a rezar, acercarse al Imán y poner el corazón en estado de atención para escuchar la predicación. Al-lah prefirió al día viernes, día del Yumu’a y lo considera el mejor día de la semana. Así pues, siervos de Al-lah, exaltad lo que Al-lah destacó. Al-lah, en Su clemencia, nos muestra algunas de las virtudes y beneficios de las cosas que Él prefiere y elige para nosotros. Ahora, queridos hermanos, citaremos algunos Hadices del Profeta de Al-lah, la paz y las bendiciones de Al-lah sean con él, donde nos habla de las virtudes del día viernes. ‘Abdul-lah Ibn ‘Amru, Al-lah se complazca de él, relata que el Profeta de Al-lah, la paz y las bendiciones de Al-lah sean con él, dijo: “Quien se lava y baña (para el Yum’ah), va y llega temprano (a la mezquita), se acerca y escucha con atención (el Jutba), tendrá por cada paso que da, la recompensa de haber ayunado y rezado por la noche durante un año entero”. [Ahmad] Para que el puesto no sea muy largo, te recomiendo este vídeo que expone todo sobre este día bendito. https://www.global-minbar.com/es/Área-de-adoración-El-día-del-viernes-y-sus-prescripciones Vamos a saber más sobre el mejor día ante Allah. ♥️ Aprende tu religión #El_día_del_viernes_y_sus_prescripciones #Área_de_la_adoración #El_Minbar_Global
