Pearl of Wisdom

A man called Abu Ayman once came to Imam al-Baqir (AS) saying, ?O Abu Ja'far, you delude people by saying, Muhammad?s intercession [will help you], Muhammad's intercession!' At this , the Imam (AS) got so angry that his face was glowering, and said, 'Woe betide you Abu Ayman! If your belly and your private parts keep you away from sin, does that mean they delude you? You would only have to see the atrocities of the Day of Resurrection to need Muhammad (SAWA)'s intercession. Woe unto you! In any case, do you think that he will only intercede for those whose punishment in the Fire is obligatory?!' Then he continued, saying, 'Every single person, from the first to the last, will need the intercession of Muhammad (SAWA) on the Day of Resurrection.'

Question: What can be the means of entertainment according to Islam?

Question:
This book is a slick paper booklet of pdnragaopa. I did not find it to be any kind of reasonable guide to the Islamic religions. It explained nothing to me about a various Islamic sects such as Sunnie or Shi'ite.The first chapter purporting to provide evidence of the truths of Islam was illogical and superficial. Of course, the paragraph about the status of women in Islam is utterly ridiculous from what I have seen and read in various news media. Don't waste your money on this book as you will learn little or nothing about Islam from it.
