photographybyzahra Question-Why don't Shia's fast on the day of Ashura?
Answer with quick points.
*Narrations contradict one another
Ex. One hadith says Prophet said to fast on the 9th other said the 10th.
Ex. Reasons vary why fasting on the day of Ashura is recommended.
Ex. Some say the Prophet didn't know, some say the Prophet fasted during the time of Jahilya. *Both Sunni's and Shia recorded The Prophet arrived to Madinah in the month of Rabi'alawal, not Muharram
*Contradicts Multiple Ayahs of the Quran (Ask me or research for detail)
*Youm Kapoor is the day Jews fasts on, and it has nothing to do with God saving Banu Israel. (Research about Youm Kapoor)
And then just common sense...if we believe the Prophet is infallible and the most knowledgeable, wouldn't it be odd for the Prophet not to know about Prophet Musa's time? And does The Prophet get his laws and rules from Allah? Or the Jews? Just something to ponder. #educate #dontjustfollow #iqra #useourminds

  •   hhassoun21 Exuse me sister but it's makrooh to fast, its not haram but you shouldn't at all. 4d
  •   photographybyzahra @hhassoun21 I never said Haram. 4d
  •   hhassoun21 Ofc ik you didn't, I just wanted to make it clear for your other viewers 4d
  •   photographybyzahra @hhassoun21 Although according to a Hadith by Imam AlRidha (AS) he was asked about the fasting and he said (not word for word) -Do you ask me about the day In which Ibn Ziyad fasted for the killing of Imam Hussein. 4d
  •   hhassoun21 Huh? 4d
  •   photographybyzahra @hhassoun21 Just a mention of a hadith. Proving that Ibn Ziyad fasted on the 10th. I'm no scholar, but I'd think that would be haram. 4d
  •   hhassoun21 Oh than we're on the same page lol 4d

photographybyzahra I apologize to the people who followed me for my photography. I just have different priorities and passion right now. If the Muslim world doesn't do something about our religions image now, no one will ever do so, And if it means sitting behind a phone screen, rambling to myself, and annoying people; then so be it. I know someone will eventually run into it, and really care. Point-a beautiful letter written by this great scholar. GO READ IT. LINK IN BIO. Peace. 1w

photographybyzahra Starting a new read. Let me know which books you recommend! 1w
  •   najafia.a 1w
  •   alysia_ Will you recommend some to me? I want to get more educated! I'm just a beginner 1w
  •   photographybyzahra @alysia_ I would love to! I'm also a beginner. Not sure if you'd like to buy them. But I can for sure lend you the books I like and benefited from. Once I understand what I'm following and practicing I'm gonna go into other religious, so I might need your help as well in the near future! 1w
  •   alysia_ That's amazing! You should send some of the titles my way and I'll see if they are inexpensive on my nook! That would be awesome, I really need to learn and understand religion especially when I'm trying to understand culture. They go hand in hand in many cases. I'm inexperienced within every religion so I might be working alongside you! 1w
  •   photographybyzahra @alysia_ I'll sent some your way pretty soon, they definitely go hand in hand. A lot of the time confused. Which is why I'm studying it as well. Because I followed what I was raised to believe, but now finally trying to understand it. I would love to work together, that'll be awesome. Someone with the same interest! I'm stoked! 1w
  •   alysia_ Great!! You should FB message me :) 1w
  •   photographybyzahra @alysia_ I will, once I get the right titles! 1w

photographybyzahra This Ayah should be framed all over the Western world. It's so overly used, usually when one tries to make Islam sound violent, they give you half the picture. As humans we just listen and believe we don't look further into it. Can I give a quick commentary? The verse before it to only fight if they fight you, the verse after it says if they cease then indeed Allah is most forgiving and merciful. In other verses of the Quran it is said Islam advocates universal peace and teaches us to respect other creeds so far as their followers don't hatch plots and generate will to destroy the religion of Islam. And that's what the extremist groups are doing. The depth and commentary of The Quran is very important. God wasn't talking about all disbelievers. #jesuischarlie #jesuismuslim #islam #peace #educate #knowthetruth 3w

Normal Zahra Almosawi
photographybyzahra I swear by God Islam is the most oppressed religion. Muslims are oppressed by the Salafi's and Wahabi's, they claim they're killing in the name Allah, but at the same time oppressing the people of Islam, by people hating on Islam saying it's violent. By God we will not understand Islam by just reading and believing what we hear. The Quran is way more complicated and deeper than "Kill the non-believers." I'm imprisoned by the media and the close mindeness of people, and posting about it constantly, helps. So unfollow if you're annoyed. #jesuismuslim #jesuischarlie #educate 3w

photographybyzahra Question: Why don't Shia agree with the Sahbi of the Prophet (Umar, and Abu Bakr) in specific?
Answer: It is narrated in many Sunni books like for one example:
*Lisan Al-Mizan written by Abu Hajar Alaskalani (one of the 4 most credible scholar and historian of the Sunni School of thought-Volume 1 Page 268
**Note there is more than 1 narration by respected Sunni scholars, telling what happened on Saqifa. The day The Prophets Daughter was killed By Umar Ibn Alkattab.
In Sahih Albukari Volume 5 Hadith 61 The Prophet says "Fatima is a part of me, and he who makes her angry, makes me angry." The answer is in our Sunni brother's books.

photographybyzahra I'm in no way, shape or form perfect, nor do I consider myself in anyway religious, I am far from religious, and far from the Prophets way of life. But I do wish to educate myself and others as I try to live the way the Prophet wanted his followers to live. The way WE Muslims are living...we should be ashamed of ourselves. If the Prophet was here today, he wouldn't call this his religion. It's time we unite as ONE Ummah and bring Islam back. #bringislamback 4w

photographybyzahra I don't care I'm obsessed. By God, we don't fear death, we will reach Hussein. When Hussein called for aide on that day when he only had under 200 men in his army against over 10,000. 14 centuries later we came to him in Millions Oh Hussein. 2mon
