Question:((Shias say that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) had only one daughter (Fatima R) while Sunnis believe that he had four daughters, Fatima, Ruqayya, Zainab, and Umm Kulthum (R). Which view is correct?
According to the Quraan, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) had more than two daughters. Allah says in the Quraan:
O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters (banaatika) and the women of the believers that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): That is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Chapter 33 (Al-Ahzab) Verse 59
In this verse, the word for daughters is banaat which means more than two daughters. (bint is singular, bintaan/bintain means two daughters and banaat means more than two.) Since Allah used the word banaat, it means that the Prophet had more than two daughters, so Sunnis are correct in this case.
This also means that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) had sons-in-law in addition to Ali (R), so any reverence that Shias give to Ali (R) on the basis that he is Prophet Muhammad (SAW)'s son-in-law has to be given to the other sons-in-law as well, such as Uthman (R). If they revere Ali (R) over the other Ashaab because he was the Prophet's son-in-law, then they have to revere Uthmaan (R) as well because he also was the Prophet's son-in-law.)))

Question:I can't remember which imam.
i heard in a lecture that one of our twelve imam's said ,. there will be two types of scholars , ulma e su and ulma e haqqa .
can you explain please

Ayatollah:Khomeini

Answer: Sheikh Nuri al Tabarasi:

Imam Hassan al-Askari (as) said to Abi Hashim: "O Aba Hashim, a bad time will come upon the people. Their faces would be happily laughing, and their hearts dark and gloomy, the sunnah in them (would be) bidah, and the bidah in them (would be) sunnah.

The momin (believer) between them would be worthless, and the fasiq (sinner) between them honourable, their rulers would be ignorant oppressors, and their scholars (would be present) in doors of darkness, their rich would be looting the belongings of the poor, and their young ones would be stepping ahead of their old ones, and every ignorant near (for) them would be knowledgeable, and every imposter near them would be faqir, there wouldn't be any distinction between sincere and the skeptical (bad aqidah people), they won't recognize the sheep from the wolves.

Their scholars would be the evilest creatures upon the face of Earth, for indeed they would be inclined towards philosophy and Sufism, and by Allah (swt) indeed they're from people of ilhad (crossing boundaries/limits) and tahreef (distortion), doing exaggeration in love of our opponents, and misguiding our Shias and Mawalis.

If they're placed in an official position they won't be satiated with bribes, and if taken (power taken back) they would worship Allah (swt) upon showing off, indeed they would not be but robbers of the path of believers, and callers to be limit crossers/atheists, so whoever finds/comes across them so should protect themselves and safeguard their religion and faith".

Then (Imam) said: "O Aba Hashim, this is what I heard from my father (a.s), from his forefathers Ja'far b. Muhammad (a.s), and it's from our secrets, so hide it except from its capable."

Question:I have an anxiety disorder and alhamdullilah im feeling better. With ramzan coming up I wanted to know the rulings regarding fastimg for someone in my state. I am also on medicataion and would like to know if i could take them in the middle of my fast. or If i suddenly feel a big burst of anxiety and i break my fast will it be considered a sin.

Ayatollah:N/a

Answer: If it is necessary for you to take medication than you're not obligated to fast. If you will be off of this medication before next Ramadhan then you will do the Qadha of those days umyou missed, but if you will be continuously in need of this medication then you need to pay fidya of feeding one poor shia per day of the missed fasts.
