Allah Can Be Seen In Your Dreams!!!

Mullah Ali Al Qari:

Among them is: Seeing Allah Exalted in dream:

The majority of scholars opine that it is possible without bounding to a quality, specification or a particular look in this case. It has been narrated from Abu Hanifa who said: "I saw the Great Lord in dream ninty nine times." and he saw Him once more and completed the one hundred times and its story is long that we can't mention here

And it has been narrated from Al Imam Ahmad also who said: "I saw the Great Lord in dream, and asked: 'O Lord, through which means people come near to you?' He said: 'through my Words (i.e. Qur'an) O Ahmad.' I (Ahmad ibn Hanbal) said: 'O Lord, with comprehension of your Words or without comprehension?' He said: 'with comprehension as well as without comprehension.'" 

And it has been narrated from the Prophet (saw) who said: 'I saw my Lord in dream.' And it has been narrated from many of the Salaf the same thing and it is a kind of seeing that could be with heart for the noble people, so there is nothing odd to deny it, even though it is not by choice for any of the human beings (to see Allah).

And it has been narrated from the Prophet (saw) who said: "I saw my Lord in the best of looks", and in another narration: "in the look of a young man.", therefore Imam Al-Razi says in Ta'sis Al-Taqdis: "it is possible for the Prophet (saw) to see his Lord in dream in a specific human look, because dream is of the actions of the imagination and it is not apart from imaginary pictures in the semi-materialistic world." 

And some of our scholars have said that Allah Exalted has external manifestations in the Hereafter and with that many of the issues are solved as it is apparent. As about what Qadhi Khan has said that this is not possible in dream and he insists on his opinion and mentions the statements of some scholars to support his opinion, I have answered it and explained its possibility in Al-Mirqat Sharh Al-Mishkat.

Miracle Of The Backside

One of the issues that Zaidi's seem to have against the Twelver Shia is surrounding the idea of miracles performed by the Twelve Imams (a.s), and they mock this and call such narrations "fairy-tales".

Though some have try to dismiss the report it been narrated from one of their predecessors who had no qualms in reporting it. 

Al Qadhi Ibn Abi Rejal (1092 A.H.):

Al Hussain ibn Al Imam Al Qasim ibn Muhammad [999-1050 A.H.]: he is al-Hussain son of Amirul Mu'minin Al Qasim Al Mansoor.

And for my master Al Hussain there are some miracles, from among them is what I heard from My master, the great Imam, Al Mutawakkil Al'allah, may Allah protect him, that he once washed his backside (Istinja) in a still water around the area of Akhraf, then that still water started flowing and kept flowing for people since then, and that is famous until now.

Imam Alee (a.s) Cursing Sahabah

Are the Zaidis really the moderate, balanced, respectful, non-Takfiri version of Shi’ism that they portray themselves to be?!

Yayha Ibn Hussain Al Qasim (Died 298 A.H.):

Yahya ibn Al-Husain said: Amir al-Mu'mineen (peace be upon him) used to curse some men by name in his Qunut. From among them were Mu'awiyah bin Abi Sufyan, Amr bin al-As, Abu al-'Aawar as-Sulami, and Abu Musa al-Ash'ari.

Hiring A Prostitute

Al Nadham:

If a man hires a woman to fornicate with her or have sex with her or he says: "take this money to have sex with me." or says: "submit to me for sex for this much money." and she agreed to it, he is not punished.

Tasbeeh Or Not Tasbeeh?

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: "Every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in Hell fire!" [] For those who insist on scrutinizing acts and calling them Bidah (innovation) should pay attention to the following Fatwa.

Ibn Taymiyyah:

Question: When one recites Qur'an [in Salah], and he counts [the verses] with a prayer beads in Salah, will his Salah be rendered void or not?

Answer: If it's intended from this question that the person counts the verses, or he counts the repetition of one Surah; for example, the Surah قل هو الله أحد with prayer beads, then there is no problem in this; however, if from the question something else is intended, then one should explain it, and Allah knows best".

Source: Al-Fatqwa Al-Kubra. Vol 2, Pg. # 333.

The following things can be deduced from the aforementioned ruling:

1. Using a Tasbih is permissible;

2. Using a Tasbih inside Salah is permissible;

3. Repeating one specific Surah several times, whilst counting it with a Tasbih in Salah, is absolutely fine.

The aforesaid three points are not proven from the Prophet (saw) nor Salaf.

Breast Of Saints

Allamah Muhammad Yahya Tazafi penned a book, recording the excellences of the Sunni Sufi scholar Saint of Saints Ghawth al Adham Shakyh Abdul Qadir Jilani. One such excellence that he records is as follows:

Allamah Muhammad Yahya Tazafi: 

Abdul Qadir Jilani states I saw myself in a dream sitting in the lap of the mother of the faithful Aisha  and that I was suckling milk from her right breast, she then fed me from her left breast. At that point the Prophet (saw) appeared and said 'Aisha he's my real son, in a literal sense'

Birds Of A Feather Flock Together

There was a very rich businessman called Ibn Al Jassas Al Jawhari, he had a high position in the eyes of the Abbasid Caliphs. Here, you read one of his wishes and prayers.

Al Aaabi:

One of his (i.e. Ibn Jassas) Duah was: "O Lord, resurrect me as a Huri (Woman of Paradise) and make me wife of Umar bn Al Khattab." So his wife said to him: "Ask Him to make you the wife of the Prophet (saw) instead, if you absolutely want to be a Huri." So he said: "I don't like to be the jealousy rival of Aisha."
