Discussion about Islam and Hinduism

Well if you don't understand then it means you are not meant to understand it. If you are only going to rely on zahiri tafsirs don't be surprised if you don't understand batini ta'wil. In any case the batini ta'wil is not meant for the masses. You quote one line from the Qur'an knowing full well that quoting it alone doesn't make sense and that you absolutely need to use the ta'wil of the Imams of Ahlul Bayt (as).Had you read Moezzi as I told you to do you'd know that there are hadiths clearly referring to the notion of tanasokh (reincarnation).Look up in Moezzi for the hadiths.

The traditions are very clear: 'Ali is with the Qur'an and the Qur'an is with 'Ali. You quoted the Qur'an without quoting the Imam (as). You took it upon yourself to comment basing is yourself on qyâs without any of prerequisites for authorised ijtihad. In this you are no different than Sunnis such as Dr.Zakir Naik.

As to Rupz's question about how Shi'a Islam differs: I gave a short bibliography in the Sikhism:offshoot of Shi'ism thread. Or consult wikipedia. To still ask such question in an age where information is just a mouseclick away is just quite outrageous. Please don't take this comment personally but if you lived in countries where access to education or information is limited you would appreciate your priviledged situation better.

This is in fact a general comment for a lot of members of the Sikh community living abroad who although they have access to information and culture don't make an effort themselves and rely on someone else to give them basic information. It's called intellectual laziness which I personally find extremely offensive given the fact that few people enjoy this privledge on this planet. No wonder the Panjabi Sikh community is in such a bad state.

Again Rupz this comment is not directed at you personally: just a general comment on the state of affairs.
