  2. why can't shia men marry from, people of the book

    In the case of the Jewish people, isn't their religion passed down through the mother (correct me if I am wrong)? It would be a conflict if the Muslim father wanted his children to be Muslim and the Jewish mother retorts by saying it is part of her religion for her children to be Jewish as she is the mother.
  3. Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can be

    This might be a simplistic view of things but let me try and explain how I feel about "Allah doesn't burden a soul beyond what it can bear" A teacher tells his students that there is a midterm exam in the following week. Although the exam is hard, the teacher knows the students can "bear" the difficulty. The students can react in three ways 1. Study and excel (in this case it would be to bear the hardship and overcome it. Furthermore, he will be ready for the same problem when he faces it in the "final exam" if it were to reappear.) 2. Not to study and attend the exam (in this case the student would be in the same position as he started. He might pass, he might fail but he has put in no effort. The hardship will continue to his final exam) 3. Not attend the exam (this has the worse of consequences, the student will fail with the harshest of grades & will surely fail again in the final) Similarly, in life, when burdened with a hardship such as depression you have three options. 1. See psychiatrists, talk to doctors, actively seek knowledge and try your hardest to overcome the burden no matter how difficult it may seem. 2. Do nothing more than what you are currently doing and "go through" the burden. You are most likely to face the same problems in the future. 3. Commit suicide, the worst of scenarios for your life and your after life. I may completely be off the mark and you may disagree with my analogy, I just hope you can see it from my perspective.
  4. Who is a Sayyed here?

  5. Arabic Caligraphist

    Salam, I am looking for someone to convert an Arabic sentence into a figural shape (for compensation). Does any one have references or advice as to where I can find someone capable of accomplishing the task?
  6. Tattoos

    I have previously asked the question and have received this reply In the Name of God, the Most High There is no problem in having tattoos per se. They do not affect ghusl, wudhu or salat. However, you should not tattoo an animal and human image on your body as it is not befitting for a Muslim to do so. May Allah grant you success. www.sistani.org Istifta Section - Office of His Eminence Al-Sayyid Ali Al-Sistani Also from the Imam Ali Foundation In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the MercifulIt is permissible to have a tattoo if:a. The tattoo allows the water of wudhu and ghusl to reach the skin whileperforming wudhu or ghusl.b. Having a tattoo does not involve forbidden touch or look.c. The tattoo does not encourage corruption or corrupted ideas or beliefs.d. The tattoo does not have the names of Allah his almighty or Quran script.e. for woman, if that is considered as a beauty item then it must beconcealed from non-mehram manWassalamu Alaykum

  8. Tattoos

    yea, definitely want to get a tattoo of the Zulfiqar with "everyday is Ashura, every land is Karbala"
  9. Yea, I specifically wanted to target ripple because many European banking system are trying to implement it to transfer money at a lower cost. Might wait for bitcoin to ripple rates hit the positive while BTC is up before I make the switch.
  10. What are your views on investing in digital currencies? I was looking into the possibility of buying Ripple Coins via the Bitcoins I own on the Kraken platform.
  11. I don't think McDonalds is dying, they have been consistently able to re-brand themselves cater to what the population wants. For example, In Canada, their was a slight decrease in people physically visiting McDonald locations. To counter that, they introduced the FilotOfish, BigMac and McChicken Sauces to retail markets such as Walmart, IGA & Provigo. Also, as the trends of eating breakfast later on in the day increase, and as people tend to be more health conscious, they have advertised 24/7 Breakfasts and put on emphasis on their salads and healthier menu's. They constantly adapt and evolve to try and retain their market share.
  12. Ah I think I understand where you're getting at. @Jebreil What I was trying to bring up was the following: since life holds the utmost value, saving at least one of the children would be the optimal choice and your number one priority, which ever one you choose is optional due to them being identical. The problem is: is your decision fair? Would it be fair/just to let them both die since they are 100% identical or is it more fair/just to pick one to save (fair/just in relation to how the identical children will perceive the decision)?
  13. I am not well versed in religious terms, can you please explain what you have mentioned in plain English?
  14. You have two baby twin sons of the same age, that are ill with the same condition and the same chances of survival (imagine they are identical in every way). You are told that you may only save one. What is the right thing to do?
  15. #4 Are you a Coffee Drinker?
