  1. Waslaam, Brother you would be amazing if you could give some 'top tips' from this book, like bullet points in the attaining the best salah. Over the past few years i have tried perfecting my salah, and it has been mostly about me doing self reflecting and talking to Allah as if we are having a conversation. Even in salah i will try to imagine thw words in english, even though i say it in arabic, i imagine the meaning in english, for example surah Fatiha; Alhamdulilah hirabil-alameen ar rahmaan ar rahmaan - whilst reciting this i think and and say to myself in my mind - Allah praise belongs to you O Allah, you are the Lord of the worlds, the most Merciful etc. But if you have any other tips that would be great!
  2. Salam brother, that's interesting, do we have sources that narrate he refused to give bayah to Abu Bakr. Thanks
  3. Wasalaam brother, you are winning already. This step you have taken where you go to sleep, and wake up an hour later, is actually a step forward believe it or not. It means you are trying, and trust me, Allah is aware of your efforts. I was a this same step at one point; go to sleep, wake up 1 hour later with the er.. intense 'feeling'. Now you need to do this, take all of your devices (mobile, ipad, etc.), before you sleep put them on Airplane mode, and put them in the lounge under or behind the sofa. Or even better, put them in your parents bedroom under their bed. They will ask why are you doing this, just say you don't want to be 'distracted' at night. Now your going to say "well i use my phone as an alarm". The devil is such a trickster. I went a bought my self an alarm clock (i must admit i much preferred the mellow sound of my phone's alarm, perhaps i will try to find a much softer sounding alarm clock rather than the old TEE TEE TEE TEE TEE TEE one which i got...grrrr). Just carry on fighting brother, as long as you are fighting, you are progressing. When you give up is when you have lost. May Allah make it easy for you and grant you success.
  4. What is this? Can you define this concept?
  5. P.s. By they way I want to say, this video is by a Sunni brother, clearly you are against democracy - what happened at saqeefah? O Allah send your blessings upon Muhammad pbuh and his family. And Allah protect Iran (in the video the Rand corporation singled out Iran on the website as something they must fight against). Allah bless and strengthen ALL the Muslims! Ameen.
  6. Indeed they will try to change Islam from within, but inshaAllah they will fail, because Allah will protect his religion and law. Their wish is to implement this new system, and then through this perhaps they can introduce homosexuality to become accepted and normal within Islam. I'm sure they would include lesbains and gays, and infact the promotion of lesbians and gays as a right of 'minority'. O Allah, I pray you guide the ones who's hearts are filled with malice and evil intent. But my Lord if they fight against your guidance, and continue to openly and secretly plot and rebel against You and Your religion, if this is their true and continued intention, then my Lord send Your curse upon them, remove Your mercy from them, and make them fail miserably in their plots. Ameen. I am sorry brothers and sisters, I don't like to invoke Allah's curse on anyone, but the one who persistently plots to destroy Islam, and this will be his/her intention until they die, then indeed I wish failure upon them.
  7. True. And if I take a step back and look at this situation from a neutral analytical view, why on earth would Assad use chemical weapons, when he is actually at the best point in this entire civil war, it has been going amazing for him in the past 6 months. We are all well aware of what CIA and the other agencies behave like.
  8. To be honest I don't agree with anything until I see an investigation.
  9. Brother, although we agree on many things, such as things like relying on Allah etc. the above bold & underlined sentence you wrote is something i don't agree with. I don't believe anything is "haunting" the Ahlul bayt a.s. in their graves. They are blessed and in peace, not haunted.
  10. @DigitalUmmah To add to what brother Hassan said, you implied that 'wilayah' means one becomes the 'master' of the universe. Here is what Wilayah means https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilayah It is more correct to understand it as a government, governor, leader. You have turned the leader into a demigod, or almost a God unto himself. All the Prophets of God that came warned strictly of this and despised this.
  11. Please can you explain the following verse to me; [Say: I do not control any benefit or harm for my own soul except as Allah please; and had I known the unseen I would have had much of good and no evil would have touched me; I am nothing but a warner and the giver of good news to a people who believe. 7:188] [Say: I do not say to you, I have with me the treasures of Allah, nor do I know the unseen, nor do I say to you that I am an angel; I do not follow aught save that which is revealed to me. Say: Are the blind and the seeing one alike? Do you not then reflect? 6:50] [Say: I am not the first of the apostles, and I do not know what will be done with me or with you: I do not follow anything but that which is revealed to me, and I am nothing but a plain warner. 46:9] [On the day when Allah will assemble the apostles, then say: What answer were you given? They shall say: We have no knowledge, surely Thou art the great Knower of the unseen things. 5:109] [Say: I am only a mortal like you; it is revealed to me that your god is one Allah, therefore whoever hopes to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds, and not join any one in the service of his Lord. 18:110] The above verse describe the complete opposite of what you say. I would really appreciate your (and the others who hold views simmilar to you) to explain these verse to me. Secondly i have some ad-hoc questions following on the above; 1) If Imam Ali (as) has knowledge of everything, why did he choose to attend the mosque to pray where he was martyred? 2) The Quranic verse in red above shows the prophets will not even know about the inner state of people, but you believe the imams can see our intention at free will? 3) The Quran speaks in many other places that the Prophet pbuh did not even know of the hypocrites among his companions. How do you explain this? Now as for the Prophets or Imams knowing things about the future/the unseen and performing miracles, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, because it was revealed to them. If i call you and tell you there is a Nokia 33.10 under my bed in my room, you have knowledge of something hidden from you, and something the rest of the world doesn't know about. If you tell your son this news, and your son then starts saying you know absolutely everything that is in my room, what would you do?
  12. Have these people decided to throw the Quran away.... far away? In the name of God, the infinitely Compassionate and Merciful.Praise be to God, Lord of all the worlds.The Compassionate, the Merciful. Ruler on the Day of Reckoning.You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.Guide us on the straight path,the path of those who have received your grace;not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.
  13. dream

    From the stuff he said about the dream he sounds creepy and fake dream.... 'Your worship will be meaningless unless you marry him'... What kind of crap is that? Whether you are in prison, on a hospital bed, or even God forbid in a nightclub, if you call upon Allah, your calling will not be in vain.
  14. @Engineer73 This word الْعَالِينَ (exalted, high), has also been used in a similar context against Firown in Quran 10:83. The way it is written in 10:83 is لَعَالٍ Feel free to paste both of these words in google translate and the meaning is 'High'. Now Allah is saying indeed Pharough was a High one (or indeed thought he was). If you read the verse Allah is saying that Firown 'IS' لَعَالٍ , so the world doesn't necessarily mean someone is great/exalted in a good way. https://www.google.co.uk/webhp?hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiPmJbjz5zTAhVMiiwKHVseDxsQPAgD#hl=en&q=google+translate
