  1. Many thoughts and pareyers for the deceased. This particular airline flies mostly domestically connecting parts of the country that are normally not serviced by other airlines. This increases the risk factor for its planes. This particular plane was grounded for past 7 years only to be put in service recently after the technical issue was supposedly fixed. Combine the above two with not so professional attitude of iran’s ground maintenance staff, will explain the higher number of planes going down in Iran. Compare that with Russia, where air travel market increased many fold with many low budget airlines coming in market cutting cost on quality of plane maintenance, quality of pilots, and general well-being of technical staff. Add Russian bravado to it and you have many Russian planes going down than the rest of the world.
  2. Divorce grounds

    Of the types of irrevocable divorce is (khal’ie), i.e. at the instanceof the wife, who must pay a compensation to the husband. It is the caseof a wife who is unhappy with her husband, so much so that she resorts tothreatening that she will not grant him his matrimonial rights. This khali’edivorce can come about when the wife is determined to end the marriage. She can address the husband thus, “I absolve you of paying my dowry, providedthat you part company with me”. The husband can reply, in Arabic and inthe presence of two witnesses of unblemished character, “My wife, -statingher name- is divorced in return for the compensation she offered”, or “Xis divorced in return for - x - amount”.* Do you have to mention the name of the wife here?- If she was identifiable, i.e. being the only wife for instance, youmay choose not to mention her name.* Is it all right if the compensation offered to the husband is anythingother than the dowry?- Yes, it is in order.* Can man and wife appoint proxies to carry out the divorce procedure? https://www.sistani.org/english/book/49/2415/ The question is, do you @Rayhana80 really hate him to this extent?
  3. Justice between 2 wives

    What is meant by ‘justice’ with respect to polygamy? Posted by: amin edrisi June 30, 2014in Ethics, Rights in IslamComments Offon What is meant by ‘justice’ with respect to polygamy?218 بازدید In verse 3 of SuratulNisa, we read: فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ تَعْدِلُوا فَوَاحِدَةً “…but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one.” Similarly, in verse 129 of this same chapter, we read: وَ لَنْ تَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ تَعْدِلُوا بَيْنَ النِّسَاءِ وَ لَوْ حَرَصْـتُمْ “And you have it not in your power to do justice between wives, even though you may wish (it).” The question that arises here is: What is meant by ‘justice’ with respect to multiple wives? Is this ‘justice’ associated with issues of life like sleeping together, gifting items and things, and providing ease and comfort, or is it associated with respect to the heart and human sentiments too? Without any doubt justice, with respect to affections and sentiments of the heart, is something that is beyond the control of man. Who possesses the ability to exercise total control over his affection – a state, which is governed by factors external to himself? It is for this reason that Allah has not considered the observance of this kind of justice to be obligatory and in verse 129 of this chapter says: وَ لَنْ تَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ تَعْدِلُوا بَيْنَ النِّسَاءِ وَ لَوْ حَرَصْتُمْ “And you have it not in your power to do justice between wives, (with respect to sentimental inclinations) even though you may wish (it).” Thus, till such time that the internal sentiments do not result in granting preference to some of the spouses over the others in actions, it is not prohibited. What is obligatory upon a man is to maintain justice amongst the spouses with respect to issues that are practical and external in dimension. From the above explanation it becomes plain that those, who have sought to correlate the above verse: فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ تَعْدِلُوا فَوَاحِدَةً with verse number 129: وَ لَنْ تَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ تَعْدِلُوا بَيْنَ النِّسِاءِ وَ لَوْ حَرَصْتُمْ and thus conclude that polygamy is totally forbidden in Islam, have made a grave error. – They have argued that the first verse places the condition of ‘justice’, while the second verse considers this justice to be an impossible task for the men., As has been referred to previously, the kind of justice, whose observance is beyond the ability of man, is that which is associated with the internal sentiments, and this is not one of the requirements for polygamy; the condition for polygamy is the justice which is associated with acts and deeds. Testifying to this aspect is the latter part of the verse 129 of this same chapter, which says: فَلا تَمِيلُوا كُلَّ الْمَيْلِ فَتَذَرُوها كَالْمُعَلَّقَةِ “Now that you cannot observe justice with respect to your sentiments between your spouses, at least do not direct all your sentimental inclinations towards one, leaving the other in suspense.” Consequently, people who have taken one part of this verse and abandoned the other part, have erred in the issue of polygamy and it is a cause for astonishment for every researcher. Incidentally, according to Islamic traditions, it appears that the first person to raise this objection was Ibn Abi al-‘Auja – one of the materialists and a contemporary of Imam as-sadiq (a.s) – who argued over it with Hisham b. Hakam, the diligent Islamic scholar. Not finding the answer to it, Hisham started out from his city, Kufah, towards Madinah and approached Imam as-sadiq (a.s). The Imam (a.s) was greatly astonished to see him in Madinah at a time when it was not the season for Hajj and ‘Umrah. Hisham presented his question, whereupon the Imam (a.s) said: “The justice intended in verse 3 of Suratul Nisa is the justice associated with the maintenance of the spouses (and observation of their rights, and the manner of conduct and behaviour) whereas the justice in verse 129, which has been regarded as an impossible task, is the justice associated with internal sentiments (thus, polygamy, with adherence to the Islamic conditions, is neither prohibited nor impossible).” After returning from his journey, when Hisham presented Ibn Abi al-‘Auja with the answer he swore that it was not Hisham’s answer but somebody else’s. It is quite evident that if we are interpreting the term ‘justice’ differently in the two verses it is because of the clear context that is present in both the verses. The verse under discussion clearly states: Do not direct all your inclinations towards one spouse, and has thus permitted the selection of two spouses, but on the condition that, despite the difference in internal inclinations, no injustice should be done to the other with respect to actions and deeds. Besides, the initial portion of verse 3 of this same chapter expressly permits polygamy.
  4. Men should never ‘check’ their female relatives’ phones, be it wife’s, sister’s, mother’s or others. What if their non-mahram female friends have shared their pictures without proper Hijab. Conversly and more importantly women should never share their non-Hijab pics with their female friends, you would never know if their male relatives would be that ethical. Nobody should snoop around anyway but it happens quite a bit, the whole of YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, and others run on this basic human nature of snooping. Don’t take chances.....
  5. Hashim sisters

    Music or not, I'm principally opposed to women (& young women) posting their videos on internet even for singing the praise of Allah swt or His awliah. Women are fundamentally the creatures of home, of concealment, of hijab. Careers yes, running businesses yes, but Islam wants women to have the least amount of contact with stranger men, again the least it is, the better it is. Putting your videos on internet is fundamentally opposite of all this. Contact they may have the least, but any number of men could view them voluntarily by a few clicks.
  6. Wild Salmon vs Farm Raised Salmon

    Farm raised salmon's diet is such that the natural color it would attain would be white, not pink which is mostly the color of wild salmon. To induce naturalness, farmers pigment the farm raised salmon with a chemical which makes them attain pink color, yes the poor farm raised salmon is fed so much chemical that its meat get pigmented pink. Just due to this, I won't go near farm raised anything.
  7. Something Weird happening to me

    Salaam dear brother: Negative thinking is a bigger demon for us humans than any devils among jinns or ins (both jins and humans have shayateen among them). The plots of Shayateen are weak anyway so nothing to be fearful of their works, Allah swt calls them as vain as spiders' web. Meanwhile I've experienced this dua to be elixir of the ills you are mentioning. Seek Allah's protection from all shayateen and their coming to you in the morning (Fajr salat) and in the evening (Maghrib salat) while remaining positive about everything. Through trustworthy chains of authority, Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) is reported to have said: Before sunrise and sunset, repeat ten times the following prayer: اَعُوذُ بِاللّٰهِ السَّمِيعِ الْعَلِيمِ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِينِ وَ اَعُوذُ بِاللّٰهِ اَنْ يَحْضُرُونِ اِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ. I seek protection of Allah the Sami ul Aleem from the works of the Shayateen, and seek protection of Allah swt from presenting themselves to me, indeed Allah swt is the Sami ul Aleem.
  8. Loudly crying during salah

    Crying invalidates the salah if not done for the fear or appeasement of Allah swt alone. For example, if someone is depressed and is crying out of depression, the crying in salah would make the salat invalid. A very slippery slope indeed. Laughing loud enough that others can hear or sense always invalidates the salat. Smiling doesn't but it's better to stay away from it.
  9. Surah Ikhlass - Basmala Twice

    Bismillah is an integral part of each sura of Quran (except Sura Tawba) and like any other ayat of a surah, can be repeated as many times as one wants during the salah. There are various reasons people say bismillah repeatedly in salah: 1. Lots of urafa do it in order to get the different impression on the nafs, for example saying "Alhamdolillah -e- Rabbil Alimeen" multiple times in salah. 2. There could be another reason, in the salat, it is wajib to say bismillah with the niya of the surah you are going to recite. So for example, right after the sura Al-Hamd, one says bismillah as a habit, now must recite another bismillah for the later surah. 3. This also happens as someone intending to read sura Qadr for example after Al-Hamd recites bismillah, but then changes mind and decides to read sura Kawthar. This person must recite bismillah again for the intention of reading sura Kawthar now. In general, Bismillah read for each Sura has different meanings to it depending on the sura itself. For example, the Bismillah of Surah Al-Hamd carries different affect as opposed to Bismillah read for Sura Juma' and so on.
  10. Marriages

    There is absolutely no problem in marrying between Sayeds and non-Sayeds as long as both are Shi’a.
  11. Marriages

    Dear sister - after literally watching countless failed marriages between Sunnis and Shias, a whole lots of us are wise enough to avoid it. Most problems start when kids grow and are confused about their deen, and then more problems ensue when both become old and naturally lean more towards their religions and grow apart from each other as they get more entrenched into their religious centers.
  12. Salaamz All - Just recently I was listening a lecture from one of the Sayed Qazwinis (there are so many Qazwinis) where he talked about the risks of reckless Aqd -e- Mutah. Most of his opinions came from the fact that we are not robots, have emotions, get emotionally attached, touch other person's life in many intimate ways, and an eventual culmination of the Aqd may leave emotional, physical, lateral (pregnancy), marital (comparing future spouses with the muta partners), social (living among Shi'a who follow the thoughts of Umer and consider Muta wrong) hangovers. This thread is not to seek your opinion on the validity of the Aqd of Muta, instead share your opinions of how to mitigate the risks of during and post Aqd issues. A few risk mitigation items that I could come up with are below. Please comment on these and add others. 1. Stipulating the end terms with the stipulation of how to detach emotionally. 2. Making the woman write terms of what will happen in case of pregnancy. 3. Issues around discretion.
  13. Are there any Mutah networks?

    Dear brother- you may need to approach it differently. Rather than looking for a mutah network (or marriage network), or for that part a job network, you (everybody) should look for places where like minded people gather, of both genders. People flock to marriage sites and so on, nothing wrong with it; but had they flock to masajid, centers, and volunteer events etc. for the sake of doing the right thing and then let things flow from there as a side benefit of finding a suitable partner, their chances of success would be much higher. If you really want to be successful in forming any companionship - find ways to meet good people regardless. Meeting people first and then vetting them to be suitable for marriage, career, profession, friendships, activity partners; is a much sure shot way to go about than the other way around.
  14. #metoo

    One of the many flaws in every new trend that gets popular in the West, by the West, for the West (and the rest of US), is the bandage nature of it, meaning there is never a solution to a cause; instead it's almost always about addressing the symptoms. All of this and more is to bring humanity even farther away from the natural order of humanity / realm of Allah swt / Sharia or Christian lifestyle / Islamic or Traditional way of living, and to promote a perpetual confusion in order to extend the slavery lease on humanity. From the son of Nabi Noah AS to the family of Nabi Lut AS to our Sunni brethren, none has ever found salvation by following 'A Woman' for solely by the virtue of her woman-ness.
  15. Iraq not part of any axis

    Read between the lines brothers, read between the lines - Iraq wants to be called a "non-aligned" country because that gives a face saving ego boost to her more powerful, war mongering GCC neighbors, who are clearly very successful agents of chaos but have no long term leverage left anymore. Iraq declaring itself non-aligned is a very slick strategy of ME Shia (read marajae') at large; what Iraq with its arsenal of Arabic language could do to confused masses of ME Sunnis, Iran could only imagine doing it, if ever. For your solace, every non-aligned country already is a natural Iran ally. As an example, look at most of the left leaning Latin America, almost always in favor of Iran on global and regional issues. If you look further, Iran itself is a hugely non-aligned country; if not the unannounced leader of the non-aligned movement already; the core of the Iranian deep state is all about "no East - no West" strategically. Don't be confused with the monetarily alliance of Russia and China with Iran on Syrian issues. So sit back and relax. Nothing changes on the ground except that exporting the revolution will get a bit more easier-
