  1. 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.
  2. Music in ramadan?

    Thanks for explaining, brother.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. Asking Allah(swt) to punish someone

    No worries brother. The suggestion is good.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Salam, I heard many times that if you doubt you haven't been forgiven on the day of Arafat during Hajj, it is the biggest sin. Extremely beautiful, BUT does this include sins that are rights of the people? For example, I'm quite certain there are muslims who go to Hajj that usurping people's rights is like drinking water for them and they are not willing to apologise are redeem for it before going to Hajj. There are people who have not and will not hesitate to usurp the rights of orphans, widows, the poor and the desperate. Will those sins be forgiven as well? Or is it just the sins that are between Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì and the creation?
  13. Quran istikhara results

    I don't know, there's huge uncertainty involved in starting your first business. Isn't that something doubtful? Well, it's something good, since it's a means for providing sustenance, maybe I should just rely on Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì and go for it.
  14. I want to start a business and since it's my first time, I fear the risks it might have, so I decided to do istikhara with the Holy Quran. I followed method number 8 in the following link: http://www.duas.org/istikhara.htm The first time I did it, the result was verse: 32:21: “And indeed We make them taste of the nearer chastisement (in this world) before the greater chastisement (in Hereafter) that haply they may return (to Allah).” Then, I doubted in my heart that I might not have done it correctly, I did it again and the second time, the result was: 11:107: “And if Allah afflicts you with any hurt, none can remove it but Him. And if He intends any good for you, none can repel His favor. He causes it to reach whomsoever of His servants He pleases, and He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” The first verse is talking about divine punishment and the second verse is about Allah(swt)'s mercy. Should I just stick with the first one? If so then I don't think it means anything positive. Does it mean I should refrain from starting a business and it might not be good for me.
  15. Is Islam against celebrating nowroz?

    I don't want to turn this into a debate, but it's not fair to say that Shia Islam had Persian influence. What about the Arab shias? A lot of them, might not have a clue about nowroz, so it's just a cultural thing. Even the normal sunnis (non wahhabis), in Afghanistan, which is a majority sunni country (about 80-85%) celebrate nowroz. So are you going to say sunnism had Persian influence? PS: The religion of the Prophet (saww) is Quran and Ahlulbayt according to mutawatir hadith. Is that a Persian influence too?
