Shia's often beat them selves in rememberance of Hassan and Hussain. Im sure you know what i am referring to.
is that wrong?
i think so, coz in Islam one is not allowed to mourn for the dead while screaming, shouting or cursing, and in particular, beating ones chest...
Shia's hurt them selves with chains etc. till they bleed!
im really confused...
do not refer to ghost stories as jokes, or take them lightly.
just as we have to believe in angels, we have to believe in Jinns too.
who knows, those 'far fetched' stories could actually be true! and if you make fun of them, it willl mean you are mocking Allah.
if you are not sure that they are valid or not, just ignore them.
yeh all of them!
theres even rallies and such, where they carry make believe coffins, shouting, screaming and hurting them selves.
i once watched it on t.v and i cudnt stand all that blood!
im asking whether what they do is right or wrong.
according to them, they say they do it out of love for them....
by the way, As-salam alikum bro! howz u?
my friends cousin was telling me she went to her friends wedding, who was either an ahmedi or shia, and everytime muhammads (pbuh) name was mentioned (i think it was his name-my memory fails em once again) everyone got up and beat themselves! even the bride. very bizarre she said.
i dunno, i wasn't there.
another jinn posession story:
back in bangladesh, my aunt got possessed by some jinn. then she started saying some weird stuff like how her name is chandra (a hindu name) which it isn't (im presuming therefore that the jinn was a hindu jinn)
