  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. Music in ramadan?

    Thanks for explaining, brother.
  7. Music in ramadan?

    I still haven't understood what is meant by "Entertainment purposes". By "entertainment purposes", does it mean music which is suitable for haram gatherings, e.g. concerts, nightclubs etc? Or does it include listening to music for your own fun. For example, there is a catchy music/theme from a video game, is listening to it for your own entertainment, haram?
  8. Wa alykom asalam, It was one year ago, that I wrote this, and really I cannot recall clearly what was going through my mind at the time. Who knows, I might have made an assumption based on a few lectures/videos of him I've watched. May AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì forgive me if I've attributed wrong things to him. If you think he doesn't have those beliefs, then ok. Nonetheless, I still think he's quite extreme and he should calm down a bit. Other than that, he's really good at debating.
  9. music

    Does that mean if a music has lyrics or words, but it's not about haram stuff, can we listen to it? Cause I thought that any music that has words in it, is haram.
  10. My sister became a Sunni

    Yeah, fair enough. Well, it is what it is. I just had the feeling that this is very close to the sunni way of salah, except that shia women should not fold their hands, so it was a bit disturbing at first glance. Anyway, it's in line with the teachings of Ahlul bayt(as) and scholars confirm this, so who am I to say this is weird. Thanks for clarifying.
  11. My sister became a Sunni

    To tell the truth, I was quite shocked when I first read this a while ago and it's still hard for me to believe that this is a way shia women should do their salat. I'm not saying I deny this, but it's shocking, because due to the belief that praying with hands down is the correct way and never imagined there would be a separate way for women. I mean doesn't this look weird for women to put their hands on their private parts during salah. What if they pray in public? Wouldn't this draw attention? If I were a women, and I prayed like this, I would feel extreme shame even within my family members. Supposed to? Or is it recommended?
  12. Asking Allah(swt) to punish someone

    No worries brother. The suggestion is good.
  13. Asking Allah(swt) to punish someone

    I know forgiveness is beautiful and all, but the person who has wronged me, should AT LEAST apologise and feel remorse for their actions, so I can forgive. I personally don't think it's right to let a wrongdoer get away with it. Say the person who has wronged me, comes one day and tells me that he feels terrible for doing an act of injustice to me and he/she is willing to change. Then, I might be stone-hearted not to forgive.
  14. Asking Allah(swt) to punish someone

    May AllahÚÒ æÌá deal with the oppressor of your family. That's what I wonder sometimes. I think if AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì really loves one of his slaves, He will punish him/her to make them stop doing that act. It's a form of mercy in disguise. That would make sense, when you see evil people's lives getting better and better in this world. Their hereafter might be the worst. Inshallah, I pray that someday, everything would be ok.
  15. Is it allowed to ask AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì to send his wrath and punishment on someone who has taken your rights or has deceived you in this world? If yes, are there any surahs/duas to be recited, so AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì can destroy your enemies? The rights of my family and I are taken and I feel helpless. It feels like I am being oppressed and I can't do anything.
