  1. Salam alaykum, I'm trying to find a store online that sells the cloak that the scholars/marjiya wear. Specially a black cloak, the summer version (transparent and not thick - I can show a picture example if it helps). Does anyone know a site online that sells this? Or a store that I can send money to and they can mail it? It would be sent to Texas, USA. Thanks and wa'salam.

  4. Dua Translation

    Salam all, I heard this dua recently and wanted to ensure I understood it correctly, can someone please translate it accurately into English? إلهي هذه صلاتي صليتها لا لحاجةٍ منك إليها، ولا رغبة منك فيها، إلا تعظيماً وطاعة وإجابةً لك إلى ما أمرتني به، إلهي إن كان فيها خللٌ أو نقصٌ من ركوعها أو سجودها فلا تؤاخذني، وتفضل علي بالقبول والغفران Thank you :) Wa'Salam
  5. Imam Ali Quotes - Source?

  6. Imam Ali Quotes - Source?

    (salam) I recently read 2 beautiful / sad quotes from Imam Ali (as) : "By the Lord of the Kaaba I have succeeded" - after being struck by Ibn Muljam "A flower nipped in the bud, it came from heaven, and it went to Heaven, and left its fragrance in my mind." - after the death of Fatima Al-Zahra (as) Can anyone point me to the source of theses quotes? I read a few places online that attribute the second one to Nahjul Balagha Sermon 200, but I didn't find it in that sermon. Also does anyone know the original Arabic text for the second one? (wasalam)

  10. Qibla Direction In Iraq

    Yes it does account for the earth's roundness - qiblalocator is actually a great website to easily get the correct qibla location from anywhere.
  11. Salam, So I was looking around on qiblalocator.com and decided to look at all the Imam Masjids in Iraq and noticed that the Qibla direction is not perfect at a couple of them. I know the rule is you're allowed +/- 45 degrees from your left and right side, but I figured these Masjids should be perfect? I've attahced a few screens. In order: Masjid Imam Ali off quite a bit Masjid Kufa is good Imam Hussien and Abbas is good Kadhimiya is off Samarra is off slighty Any comments?

  13. Qunoot

    Salam, I recently heard a new qunoot while praying jam'aa. I looked for it online and think I found it: áÇ Çáå ÇáÇ Çááå ÇáÍáíã ÇáßÑíã áÇ Çáå ÇáÇ Çááå ÇáÚáí ÇáÚÙíã ÓÈÍÇä Çááå ÑÈ ÇáÓãæÇÊ ÇáÓÈÚ æÑÈ ÇáÇÑÖíä ÇáÓÈÚ æãÇÝíåä æãÇ Èíäåä æÑÈ ÇáÚÑÔ ÇáÚÙíã æÇáÍãÏ ááå ÑÈ ÇáÚÇáãíä Can someone please: 1) Let me know if this is an actual qunoot 2) My Arabic isn't great, so while I can read it I might be pronouncing a few of the words wrong. Does anyone know if there's an audio or video clip with it recited? I looked on youtube with no luck... Thanks! Wa'Salam
  14. [LAWS]Soy (soya) Sauce.... Halal?

    Thank you all for the replies. So just to confirm, foods that contain some alcohol due to its manufacture (soy sauce, vinegar, vanilla, etc) are halal. And also to confirm, some restaurants (especially Italian restaurants) add wine to the pan when cooking food, so these types of food (due to wine being used as an intoxicant) are haram?
  15. Salam, I recently noticed while eating sushi that the soy sauce bottle had "alcohol" listed under the ingredients. It didn't specify volume % or anything. I've seen a couple threads on this in the past but with no definite answer. Is soy sauce halal according to Sayid Sistani? Thanks.
