  1. Nawroz  

    Aah, you're right. Forgot that Nawroz is a Solar Hijri calendar event. Kinda got it mixed up. So, yeah the reappearance that might take place in Ramadan or Muharram according to narrations, could coincide with Nawroz in that year.
  2. Nawroz  

    Me too, doesn't seem authentic. There are many other narrations, which say that Imam Mahdi (as) will reappear either in Ramadan or Muharram.
  3. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate your advice, but my intention wasn't to judge, but to give the readers a gist of the scenario, so they can give me advice on how I can approach this problem. Because, the actions of my father directly affects me and my family. Let's say as an example, my dad, is someone who doesn't fast or listens to haram music. Well, I couldn't care less, because it doesn't affect me. So, yeah, I wanted to make it clear to myself, and make sure I have nothing to do with this, because at the moment everything is wishy-washy in my life.
  4. That's a brilliant example. Haven't thought about it much before, actually. That's right, things aren't that black and white in this matter.
  5. I see, that does make sense.
  6. Thanks for your insight. I should've phrased my first post better, as I said "All my problems in my life, could be a result of this". Not all my problems, as you said there is no one who doesn't have problems in their life, be it whatever background, but I sometimes suspect that some hardships we are facing could be a worldly consequence of haram sustenance. We may never know for sure.
  7. I think I should add to make things more clear and I should've said it first (my bad), is that I understand that sins don't transfer from father to son or vice versa, but the key thing I am concerned about is the worldly consequences of a father's sin on his family. Because, I heard many times that if a father persists on sinning, then something might happen to that father's offspring as a form of punishment. Additionally, I've also heard that sustaining yourself through haram food, has negative effects on the soul, and because of that duas might not get answered.
  8. I'm not sure, if that's the case. Well, my relationship with my father is not bad. I do have contact with him, we text each other occasionally. I visited him a few times, even after he married another woman and hurt my mother emotionally. Sure, I'm not perfect, my father and I had some small arguments in the past, but not something that he could become angry with me forever.
  9. Yeah, your right. Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى is merciful. It's just sometimes, I just feel uneasy when I think too much about it and yes, charity is a good idea. InshAllah, I pray I become self sufficient soon.
  10. Hope everyone is well. It's been a while, since I came to know something devastating and it has been bothering me, because I think it has affected my life negatively. Here's a little bit of backstory: I found out that it is highly likely that my father brought haram earnings into our house. Hence, that means throughout my teenage life and early 20s, I was having haram food and possibly spending money from which khums was not paid. I currently live in a house which my father bought a few years ago and I spend from money obtained from selling our property, which I think is haram and khums is not paid from them, both the house and money. Now, I am unemployed and I'm trying my hardest to find a job to earn halal rizq, but it's very competitive and I have no choice, but to spend from possibly haram money. My father is separated from us, because he married a vulgar woman, living in his mansion and traveling the world, while he doesn't care what we are going through. Now, the question is how does this work? I had no involvement in what my father did, because I was too young to understand. What about the house we are living in? Is Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to hold me responsible as well and will this affect me this world? I believe it has, because of all the problems I have in my life, it could be a result of this. As a I said, I have no job. I'm searching, but I get rejected everywhere I apply. This is maddening. All these years, I thought my father was a noble man, but no he was the opposite, he was just pretending... Or maybe Shaytan got to him at some point. Please, I need your input.
  11. Salam, A lot of people give personal opinions in regards to Jannah, and even ignore what the Quran and Ahlul bayt (as), have said about it. According to what I have heard from scholars who talk about jannah, is that it is going to be physical and spiritual. People who will live in there, will experience physical pleasures, such as eating, drinking, relaxing, intercourse etc, which is far more greater than the pleasures we experience in this world. In addition, there will also be spiritual pleasures and according to scholars I've listened to, is that spiritual pleasures are more better than physical pleasures in Jannah. And according to one of our classical scholars, it is wrong to believe that Jannah, is a place where we are all souls, because that is a Christian belief that, God will turn us humans into angels in Paradise. It is unislamic to have that kind of perception of Paradise, because it is important to believe in a physical resurrection. I don't remember which scholar it was. I had a link to the book, but cannot find it. If anyone has the link, then please post it.
  12. A few questions about prayers

    @Hassan- Great reply. I checked Ayt Sistani's fatwa closely and yeah, I noticed it's only wajib to say it loudly/silently for the surahs. Thanks a lot for clarifying.
  13. 1- I've seen two different pronunciations for the tashahud, so I'm confused, because Arabic is not my mother tongue. Which is correct "ash hadu ana muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluh" or "ash hadu ana muhammadan abdahu wa rasuluh"? Is it abduhu or abdahu? 2- About praying loudly and silently. I know that for fajr, all of it should be prayed loudly. For dhuhr and asr, you pray silently all of it. For maghrib and isha, the first two rakats are loud, and the rest is silent. The question is when you pray silently, should you say everything silently, including the niyat, takbeeratul ehram and the two surahs of the Quran?
  14. Force Hijab

    @Sumerian Salam, What if the muslim who repents for neglecting his salat, and tries to make up for all the missed salat, but dies before completing all of it? Will there be exceptions?
  15. Just like good deeds and repentance cleans one from sins. Is it true the other way around, that certain sins can wipe out all good deeds? For instance, I heard a lecturer say that if a muslim is going through trials in their life and if they complain about their situation by saying, "Why me?" or "Why is God making me suffer?", Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, will wipe out all their good deeds and will no longer try them, because he/she failed the test. This is just an example, I've heard, but I'm not sure of anything else. Is this true? Cause it sure is frightening and it kinda makes me feel that, if someone like me can ever be successful in religion.
