  1. Simply to distinguish the ones made of Karbala soil from the rest. (It's like 'made in ...' mark on any product) However, salafi wahabbis love to take it as 'Majusi Shia worship Husayn!!' Wohohoho!
  2. Prayer

    W Salam What do you meam by "maghrib"? Is that sunset? Technically maghrib is (around) 20 min after sunset Sunset: when the sun fallas behind the horizon. Maghrib: when the reddish light in wester part of the sky disappears (changes to darkness) One must pray zuhrayn before sunset. However your case seems unproblematic, since you said '50 min'
  3. Who said circumcision is solely for the sake of cleanliness? It's just part of it, not the whole reason.
  4. Dream interpretation required

    W Salam That cousin of yours, in reality, how is she? Practicing?
  5. Can atheism be forgiven?

    W Salam After that "one day he starts to love Islam" he can marry you. "Do not marry a pagen (atheist) before he believes, verily a Muslim slave is better than a [free] pagen, even if the pagen impresses you. They invite to hellfire and Allah invites to paradise and his forgiveness." Quran 2:221 As much as I realized the person you talking about is a fitri apostate (a person who was born in a Muslim family, yet abandoned Islam) there's no remedy for your case except your patience or his repentance.
  6. There are different wordings for this hadith, but I translate the wording in the OP: We have modes with God, in which He is He and we are we; and [modes in which] He is us and we are Him. One possible (classic) explanation is that this is fana, not physical or identity fana, but the fana of will, we have no other will than that of Allah swt, utmost obedience. For other explanations you may refer to Shia tafsir of the below verse: You killed them not, but Allâh killed them. And you (Muhammad SAW) threw not when you did throw, but Allâh threw, that He might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (8:17)
  7. Well, when we have the word "test" in its first meaning and the common English usage in the same context, why would use "try"? And as they say, there's no real synonym in any language, words have spirits which make them different in complex situations. Now my poor linguistic intuition tells me there's a difference between: God tests believers And God tries believers The latter sounds unnecessarily odd or even wrong (you try sth when you need it for yourself -like a shirt you wear-, but test is general, you can give test to someone else for his own good; see the difference?)
  8. Salam That is not good translation. امتحن الله قلبه للایمان Means: Allah has tested his heart for faith. (Allah has tested the faith in his heart) The meaning must be obvious now, when a person pass these tests, resisting against temptation for sins, fulfilling shar'i obligations, etc.
  9. Dream Interpretation

    Salam Just being somewhere with a deceased person, doesn't mean death; it should be a special kind of association or companionship, like if the other two had left you alone or a meaningful physical touch (in dream of course) But even then, it is not 100%, might be a warning. Even if it is 100%, it can be changed and redirected by dua and sadaqa.
  10. What is a good enough reason to pray?

    Once a person told Ayatullah Bahjat (ra) "My friend doesn't pray. What should I do?" Ayatullah Bahjat said: "Tell him Prayer is delicious."
  11. Refuting Israel.

    Yes, that's right. http://farsi.khamenei.ir/speech-content?id=37638 It is a long list of Sayyid's reactions to Myanmar ongoing tragedy, but as he said it in 1992, "no one cares" and he doesn't get any positive publicity in western media. It is the new world order, where the whole world have been kept alert about the childish game of NK and US; or Muslims are used against Muslims and Islam. thanks to 'neutral' western media. Here's a list of his remarks about Myanmar: 2017 http://farsi.khamenei.ir/news-content?id=37040 http://farsi.khamenei.ir/news-content?id=37641 2016: http://farsi.khamenei.ir/speech-content?id=35186 2015: http://farsi.khamenei.ir/speech-content?id=31386 2013: http://farsi.khamenei.ir/message-content?id=24203 2012: http://farsi.khamenei.ir/speech-content?id=20670 http://farsi.khamenei.ir/speech-content?id=20482 1992: http://farsi.khamenei.ir/news-content?id=589

    Mabruk Btw, it's Mubahala
  13. What do I get from God?

    Maybe the same reward you get from a police officer when you stop behind a red light.
  14. Refuting Israel.

    This not something for today. َAyt. Sayyid Ali Khamenei: "News coming from Myanmar takes away sleep from one's eyes." 4 March, 1992 http://farsi.khamenei.ir/speech-content?id=2604
