Sheikh at-Tusi on difference between people that he met

I have often heard from shias that they have a similar school, and claim that their scholars didn’t differ a lot.

Sheikh Abu Jafar at-Tusi in his “Uddat al-Usul” (1/354) said:

فاني وجدتها مختلفة المذاهب في الاحكام، يفتي أحدهم بما لا يفتي به صاحبه في جميع أبواب الفقه من الطهارة إلى أبواب الديات من العبادات

“I have found different ways (schools) in the legal rulings (ahkam). One of them issues a fatwa, which his contemporary does not. These differences exist in all chapters of jurisprudence from those concerning the laws on ritual purity (al-tahara) to the chapter on indemnity (al-diyat) and on the questions of worship…..”

Ayatollah Sistani is Iraq’s Bulwark against Iran: Wikileaks

Hayder al-Khoei writes in a guest column for Informed Comment

The “cablegate” leaks have gone a long way in embarrassing governments all over the world, not least the Arab states in the Gulf who seem a little too excited in encouraging the US to attack Iran, and the State Department will have to continue their efforts in damage control. However, blushes aside, the leaks reveal that along with opposition to their nuclear status, regional isolation, tallying sanctions and growing internal dissidence, Iran has to carefully tread around another unwelcome voice that is standing in the way of their strategic ambitions in the Middle East. That voice being of the religious elite – the Marji’iyya – in Najaf.

Khamanei, Khomeini and Ruhani allowed devilish act

Salam alaikum.

We all aware that Khomeini, Khamenei, Muhammad Sadiq Ruhani allowed sex change.

Khamenei in his “Practical laws” said: “Q1271. Some people have the appearance of men. They have female psychological and sexual tendencies though. If they do not undergo the operation of sex change, they might commit sins insofar as their sexual behavior is concerned. Is it permissible for them to undergo such an operation?
A: There is no harm in undergoing the said operation if the end result would be determining of the true sex of the person provided that it does not lead to the commission of any ḥarām act or a vile consequence”
.

Grand Ayatollah Shaikh Muhammad Hussain Najafi said:

Sex Change
Question # 1:
Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa declaring sex-change operation permissible?. What is your view on this? Is this action permissible?
Answer:
We do not have knowledge about any such fatwa by His Excellency. Other ulema and jurists do not allow such an act at all, nor in our view is such an act correct according to sharia. Such an act would be categorized as Deformation of Allah’s Creatures (تغير خلق الله), which is an act attributed to devil. “Do not deform Allah’s creatures.” (وليغيرن خلق الله)

All that we have to do is to agree with Najafi, indeed those 3 scholars allowed filthy and devilish action.

Fadhlullah is ‘Dhaal’, any co-op with him illegal

Fadhlullah is ‘Dhaal’, any co-op with him illegal: Ayat Tabrezi office

By: Sheikh M Khurasani

HOLY CITY OF QOM, Iran: Lebanon’s Muhammad Hossein Fadhlullah is ‘Dhaal Modhil’ and any help to or cooperation with him in publishing his writings is not legal with respect to Islam.

This was stated by a statement issued from the office of late grand Ayatullah Al-Marje Sheikh Mirza Jawad At-Tabrezi in the holy city of Qom – home to the holy mausoleum of Karimeh Ahlil Beit Seyedeh Fatimeh Al-Masumeh (a.s.).

“We desire to inform Momin brothers and the defenders of line of Ahlil Beit (a.s.) that Al-Marje Al-Faqih Grand Ayatullah Sheikh Mirza Jawad At-Tabrezi considered this man ‘Dhaal Modhil’ (who go astray) till the last days of his life because of this man’s deviation from beliefs of Mazhabi Haqqa,” the statement said.

Books of Ali Shariate were prohibited.

Ali Rahnema in his book “An Islamic utopian: a political biography of Ali Shari’ati” at page 274, wrote:

Ayatollah Ali Fani-Esfahani issued the first fatwa in which he prohibited the purchase , sale and reading of Shariati’s works. By July 1978, similar fatwas were issued by ayatollahs Ali Namazi-Shahrudi, Abdullah Shirazi, Malek Hosseini, Abol Qasem Musawi-Khoi and Shahabeddin Marashi Najafi”.

But in modern days it’s strange to see his books in majority of shia books shops and at many shia sites.
