  1. The Holy Prophet (s.a) has said, that these prayers are Means of forgiveness and on the first night in our grave, the Almighty will send the reward off this prayer in the best, enlightened and eloquent form. When inquired, will reply, ‘‘My Beloved,, glad tidings to you that you have found salvation from every hardship and horror..’’When asked,, ‘‘Who are you?’’ ‘‘By God I haven't seen any one more beautiful than you,, I haven't heard a word sweeter than yours,, or a fragrance better than you?’’ In reply,, ‘‘I am,, that prayer which you offered on the eve off the first Friday of the month of Rajab. I have come to you,, to be your companion in this loneliness,, to remove from you your fright and horror.. Be lest assured that my shelter will be with you until the blowing off the Horn off the Day off Judgment..’’ It is recommended to fast on the first Thursday & between Maghrib & Isha recite 12 Rak’at namaz in six sets of 2 units.(with niyat/intention of Rija ) In every Rak’at after surah al Hamd recite 3 times Surah al-Qadr & 12 times Surah Ikhlaas. After completing the full prayer recite :- Recite 70 times: اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ ٱلنَّبِيِّ ٱلامِّيِّ وَعَلَىٰ آلِهِ Allahumma s’ale a’laa muh’ammadin nabiyyil ummi wa a’laa aaleh. O Allah send blessings on Muhammad, the Ummi Prophet, and on his descendants. Then go into sajdah & recite 70 times: سُبُّوحٌ قُدُّوسٌ رَبُّ ٱلْمَلاَئِكَةِ وَٱلرُّوحِ subbuh’un quddoos rabbul malaaaekate war-rooh’ Holy and most Holy is the Lord of the Angels and spirits. Then sit erect & say 70 times: رَبِّ ٱغْفِرْ وَٱرْحَمْ وَتَجَاوَزْ عَمَّا تَعْلَمُ إنَّكَ انْتَ ٱلْعَلِيُّ ٱلاعْظَمُ rabbighfir war-ham watajaawaz a’mma ta’lamo innaka antal a’liyyul a’zam O Lord! Forgive, have mercy and be indulgent about that which Thou knows well, verily Thou art Sublime, Mighty. Then go into sajdah & say 70 times: سُبُّوحٌ قُدُّوسٌ رَبُّ ٱلْمَلاَئِكَةِ وَٱلرُّوحِ subbooh’un quddoos rabbul malaaekate war-rooh Holy and most Holy is the Lord of the Angels and spirits. http://www.duas.org/mobile/rajab-first-thursday.html
  2. I agree. Those who say that have no idea of our history of persecution. People think we are persecuted because we send la'an on the sahaba. 1) we send la'an on the munafiqeen, not sahaba. 2) it would be more right to say we started cursing because of the persecution we faced...if we want to relate la'an and persecution.
  3. John Bolton to replace McMaster- Iran war coming?

    For all their planning and strategy, they couldn't even achieve their objectives in Syria. They will fail bigly inshallah if they attack Iran. They can plan all they want but Allah is the best of planners.
  4. Shiabladeunner zain rizvi attacked by salafi thug

    Very naive to think they are not paid.
  5. As the video proves, Shirazi and others are definitely being paid to sow discord amongst us. However, pls don't undermine the contributions of the marajae from Iraq as well. We need to support the collective, mainstream marajae whether they are from Iran or Iraq or another country.
  6. True words brother. Only 2 things have ensured our survival - our marajae and our azadari. Both happen to be under attack from external and INTERNAL forces.
  7. Sorry brother, the millions of shias who have been persecuted for the last 1,400 years will disagree that as soon as these 3 things are 'fixed', all sunnis will become pro-unity. Interestingly enough, none of the 3 things impact them directly so it is nothing but naive to think so. If we take a stance that until all suicide - bombing is eliminated, there will be no unity. It makes sense because they are killing us. But the 3 things you mentioned have no impact to them whatsoever. False Prophet aka false preachers.
  8. Sunni Muslims (not all of course) hate us even if there was no tatbir so this is a really arrow-minded question. Surely if unity was just as important to the Sunnis they would accept us with or without tatbir. Hate promoting hate is surely not an Islamic answer either. We are digressing from the topic of how the British divide and conquer.
  9. Salaam alai kum, Absolutely Iran has the right to their slogan or any slogan but at the same time, let's not act surprised that the same slogan is used negatively across America. And there is plenty of ignorance on both sides. One such example is of the friends we made on our trip to Iran who were surprised that my wife can go to the supermarket by herself during the day or night and not get harassed, molested, etc.
  10. Exactly. At least in the US, there is no policy that can't be influenced via politics by lobbying. And Ammar was very active.
  11. BTW, there is nothing new here. It has always been British policy to divide and conquer. So they have created these fake mullahs to divide us. I firmly believe as long as we stay true to our marajae and our azadari, they will never be able to divide us.
  12. While you theorize this, I can 100% confirm that in my 20 years of living in the US, only 1 person has asked me about tatbir and over 20 have asked me about the "Death to America" chants. Agreed. Ammar had become politically active in the US. I think there is another PAC called UMMAH or something. That is the one he was associated with. You entire statement is predicated on "If they wish to know what it means...". All they see on TV is some foreign country hates us. Very few people dig into why. Tatbir and "Death to America" were mentioned in the video. With regards to tatbir, they even mentioned how negative it portrays us. So my argument is simple. If we are stop everything that makes us looks bad, then let's stop with the chants first. And as I told IR, I can 100% confirm that in my 20 years of living in the US, only 1 person has asked me about tatbir and over 20 have asked me about the "Death to America" chants. I have nothing but respect for Ayatollah Khamenei. I was talking about the Islamic Pulse folks. I have dealt with some of them. That's all. Lumping SAN in the same group as Shirazi, Al-Habib is ample evidence brother...
  13. [MATURE] Halala or prostitution?

    there was a video of a Pakistani mullah who would offer his wife to his friends under halala. Repulsive...
  14. (Top) 10 Interviewing Tips

    Jokes can be tricky but it is important to strike a good chemistry with the interviewers.
  15. Top 10 Interviewing Tips: 01) Dress professionally - ironed clothes, polished shoes, combed hair, light or no scent 02) Arrive around 10-15 minutes before the interview. 03) Carry a briefcase or padfolio to the interview. Bring 3-5 copies of your resume to the interview and a pen. 04) When you meet the interviewer, be sure to offer your hand for a handshake. The handshake should be firm and look the interviewer in the eye while shaking his/her hand. 05) Memorize everything in your resume so when the interviewer asks about something on your resume, you answer assuredly 06) Be succinct in your answers. Make answer relevant to the position you are seeking 07) At the end of the interview, be sure to ask 2-4 questions. 08) Ask about "Next Steps" once the interview is over. 09) Send thank you email to the interviewer(s) the next day 10) Follow up with interviewer the following week if you don't hear from them.
  16. I completely understand the "Death to America" chants from removing Musadeq to putting Shah the dictator in control to the 8 years of Iran-Iraq war. They are justified. All I am saying is that ibagree with Ammar that ”Death to America" doesn't work outside the borders of Iran.
  17. That's the thing. The much respected WF wants shias to stop tatbir because of the image it portrays but in turn continue with the "Death to America" chants. I can say from personal that more people have asked me about these chants and slogans than about tatbir. So if we are concerned about our image, then these chants should stop first before tatbir.
  18. The Islamic Pulse folks are staunch WF supporters to the point that they consider non-WFers to be non-shias...almost
  19. I agree with you here. Ammar said the right thing in the wrong way and he should not be lumped in with those other fitna-mongers.
  20. Please me the correct way of categorizing the Ridda wars. I agree that US started the acrimony with Iran by removing Musadeq and I understand where the sentiments are coming from. But I am not the average American. All the average American sees is the burning of US flag and chants of "Death to America". Their version of history begins with the embassy incident.
  21. Actually Ammar has become more politically active now than before which is reflected in his speeches. He is (was) promoting the shia agenda in the US.
  22. While we know what the chant "Death to America" means, it is naive to imagine that all Americans know what that means. All they see are millions shouting this slogan at the top of their voices.
  23. I am sure you are well aware of Khalid bin Walid and his actions which we approved by Abu Bakr. How would you categorize Ridda Wars?
  24. Shiabladeunner zain rizvi attacked by salafi thug

    If you want to discuss zealots in all religions (I agree with you), open a thread about it. This is about Zain aka ShiaBladeRunner.
  25. Salaam. As someone who knows Ammar personally, I think he was mis-characterized in the video. He has always said that there is a difference between abusing someone and re-telling history. Abu Bakr did in fact have his henchmen go out and kill people who refused to pay zakat. Ammar did not curse or swear at them - he re-told the story. Secondly, the concept of wali-e-faqih is a theory because not all marajae subscribe to it in Iran and Iraq. There is a famous video of Ayatollah Basheer Al-Najafi saying he is wali-e-faqih as well. I would definitely not characterize Ammar as being similar to Yassir Al-Habib, Allahyari, Tawhidi and Shirazi.
