Why do the Shî`ah practice what they do on the day of `Ashûrâ and why do Muslims fast on that day?

I have visited a number of Shî`ah websites where they convincingly prove their doctrines using hadîth found in Sunnî sources. I will present you with just one example to illustrate what they are doing: The Messenger of Allah said to `Alî: “Glad tiding O Ali! Verily you and your companions and your Shî`ah will be in Paradise.” Sunni References: 1- Fadâ'il al-Sahâbah by Ahmad ibn Hanbal (v.2, p.655) 2- Hilyah al-Awliyâ' by Abu Nu`aym (v.4, p.329) 3- Tarîkh Baghdâd by al-Kh ...

I came across a website that stated some Shî`ah beliefs supposedly drawn from their primary book of hadîth. I was just wondering if these are truly the beliefs of the Ithnâ`asharî Shî`ah: “Allah often lies and makes mistakes." [Usûl al-Kâfî (1/328)] “Allah has the Quality of Badâ' (changing his mind).” [Usûl al-Kâfî (1/283)] “The Imams possess all the knowledge granted to angels, prophets and messengers.” [Usûl al-Kâfî (1/255)]

We have decided to buy a new house to live in, in Baghdad. But my father refuses to live anywhere except the area in which he grew up, which is a Shia area where rituals of shirk are done every year and the people whip themselves with chains in mourning for al-Husayn, or so they say. Now we, the sons, are confused: should we go against our father and prevent him from buying a house in this area, or should we give in to what he wants out of obedience to him even though we are able to stop him fro ...

What is the reasoning behind the Hanbali madhab stating that it is makruh in the to face the sun or moon when answering the call of nature ? This is the mutamad position as it is agreed upon in both al-Iqna and al-Muntaha. Ibn al-Qayyim states in Miftah Dar al-Sa'ada (2.205-206), Not a single word about this has been reported from the Prophet , not with an authentic or weak isnad, or a mursal or continuous isnad. This issue has no foundation (asl) in the shar'. But still there are still ...
