Question ID  1870  -  Hadeeth
Assalamu Alaikum Your Eminence, I would greatly appreciate it if you could aid in the interpretation of the following ahadeeth: “لاتتفأل بالقرآن.” “There should be no fortune telling with the Quran.”[al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 629] عدة من أصحابنا، عن سهل بن زياد، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن بعض رجاله عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) قال: لا تتفأل بالقرآن
Answer:-  Quranic verses are not meant to be used in fortune telling but to guide to
the rightiousness and piety. Fortune telling itself is not recommended and
using Quranic verses for this purpose is doing injustice to this greatest
book. It is like misusing the Quranic verses in a matter which is much
lower than the purpose of it.

Assalaam I'm born in a Shia family, so obviously the major knowledge that i have is of the Shia side of Islam. So what I want to know is how can one be assured that he's on the right path of Islam (haq), because the Shia had good logical answers on every aspect of the incidents etc.. for example fadak, incident of the door, thursday, battles with muawiya and aisha etc.. and the most important issue about the caliphate after the demise of the prophet (s). But so do the Sunnis have good logical answers on these very issues/incidents. Each one (sunnis and shias) have good points. And the majority of muslims don't have the books on their hand they have to believe what they hear what their scholars tells them. Can you please explain how one can be sure of his deen that he's on the guided path of Allah (stw)? Thanks
Answer:-  Proper knowledge leads to firm faith in the True Islam. You may read (Then
I was Guided) by Dr Tijani Samawi of Tunisia, or The Right Path By
Sharafuddin or any other book in this subject. Our evidences can never be
compared with the claims of others. You can not put right and wrong equally
if you go through the evidences.
You may visit
If you read Arabic, you may visit where you can find
statements of hundreds of ex Sunni / Wahabi scholars who became Shia after
I you have any question in this regard, you may write.

Answer:-  You can throw the Ariza in the well. You may do so any time and not

The no relation between the grave of the Shaheed at your family house and
bad things happening in the life of some family members.

Question ID  753  -  Hadeeth
Salamunalaikum, These days many people are saying that we should not read traditions (ahadeeth) of Masumeen (a.s.) because hadeeth can be zaheef etc. and normal people don't have capability to find out the reliability of ahadeeth. On the other hand we should only see what Ulama are saying, if they say something that is against the traditions then we should kiss the traditions and keep it aside and follow the ulama. What are the conditions of this, either it fits in all aspect or only in any particular field of Islam (e.g. furu) and isn't this approach making the people away from the ahadeeth of Masumeen(a.s.)?
Answer:-  We are been ordered by the Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) to keep following Quran
being the Word of Allah, and Ahlul Bayt (AS) being the most pious leaders
who now the meaning of Quran and have the real Sunnah of the Prophet
(SAWA). Leaving any one of these Two means deviating from the Right Path.
Those who claqim that we should leave Hadeeths, are wrong, simply because
we can never understand Quran and have the details of Islam with out
authentic Hadeeths.
No real Aalim could say any thing against authentic Hadeeths, but the Ulama
distinguish between authentic Hadeeths and unauthentic narrations.

Please explain this hadith- does it imply that one should NOT go to the mosque of Holy Prophet after eating Garlic and if one does not go it is OK? Whoever has eaten this pungent herb [i.e. garlic] should not approach our mosque. As for one who has eaten it and does not come to the mosque [as a result], there is no blame on him for it - Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafa (s.a.w.w.) [ Amali al-Saduq, p. 293, no. 8; Mizan ul Hikham page No. 621 ]
Answer:-  It is mentioned in many narrations that the person who eats garlic should
not go to the Masjid as the smell of the garlic might annoy others. He
should wait till te smell of garlic goes away then he can go to the Masjid.
There is no blame on him for not going to Masjid as far as the smell of
garlic is still with him, because of the more importance of avoiding
harming or annoying others, than going to Masjid.
