  1. Khums

    Hi, Please help me. I need help on Khums topic (numbers are arbitrary): Let's say I owe $25K on my credit cards, I also owe $55K for my student loans. At the end of the tax year (for example April), I receive $5K tax return. Now, if I consider my Khums year at June then I will pay this $5K toward my credit card debt by then, and I will not have much saving left that Khoms is applicable. If I consider my Khums year in April then I have to pay $1K as Khums. I always have expenses that balance out with my savings by June, because I owe money and I spend toward the year. So not much saving left at end of the year if I assume June is my Khums calendar. There will be small money in my account on that time let's say $200 (Khums) but if I consider the day after tax return it will be $1K (Khums). For the Zakat, I believe it is obligatory only one time, is this right? What is the percentage, let's say you have $100 gold, how much is the Zakat? Thanks for the help.

  4. Are Muslims ready for Emam Mahdi (as)

    This is not right as if this was the case Ashura would not happen. The almighty God protects if the followers cannot, however if the believers are alive that is their responsibility. For example when Yazid burned the Kaba God did not protect, but the same God protected Kaba few years back from another attack (elephant army). This means it is the responsibility of us to by working hard and learning the techniques and technology of the day, growing your economy and advancing in power and technology show that if the Emam (Samolah Alay) comes Ashura will not happen again. Of course this is one aspect, the other aspect is Taghva (or being truthful), which is much more important than technology as you mentioned. If you have technology but no Taghva it has no value, we are talking about truthful people who already have the Iman and Taghva.
  5. The question is simple, And (please) expedite his relief, وَسَهِّلْ مَخْرَجَهُ wa sahhil makhrajah£ make his reappearance easy, وَاوْسِعْ مَنْهَجَهُ wa awsi` manhajah£ clear a spacious space for him, وَٱسْلُكْ بِي مَحَجَّتَهُ wasluk b¢ mu¦ajjatah£ guide me to follow his course, وَانْفِذْ امْرَهُ wa anfidh amrah£ give success to his issues, وَٱشْدُدْ ازْرَهُ washdud azrah£ and confirm his strength. وَٱعْمُرِ ٱللَّهُمَّ بِهِ بِلادَكَ wa`mur all¡humma bih¢ bil¡daka O Allah, construct Your lands through him وَاحْيِ بِهِ عِبَادَكَ wa a¦yi bih¢ `ib¡daka The Muslim world is not compatible in technology, Muslims do not study science, they do not develop their countries, they do not have any invention in the new era, they cannot build airplane, the cannot build cars, they do not have a high technology, in sports they are weak. I believe if Muslims were serious about asking the God last resort, they need to work harder and build their society, they need to show a good deed to Christians and good behavior to each other, beside that they need to respect each other and other religions, they need to learn, learn and learn and they need to behave like a Ahle Beyt (respect women, respect and take care of other religions) and learn the science and the today's technology.

your arbitrations between the weak and the strong. كُنْتَ رَبيعَ الأيْتامِ، وَ عِصْمَةَ الأنامِ، وَ عِزَّ الإسْلامِ، You were the springtime of the orphans, the protection of humanity, the glory of Islam, وَ مَعْدِنَ الأحْكامِ، وَ حَليفَ الإنْعامِ، the treasure of divine laws, and a relentless ally of benevolence. سالِكاً طَرائِقَ [في طَريقَةِ] جَدِّكَ وَ أبيكَ، You pursued the path of your

الْمَناقِبِ، مَحْمُودَ الضَّرائِبِ، جَزيلَ الْمَواهِبِ، You possessed plentiful merits, praiseworthy manners, and were abundant in endowments. حَليمٌ رَشيدٌ مُنيبٌ، جَوادٌ عَليمٌ شَديدٌ، You were

loved, and awesome. كُنْتَ لِلرَّسُولِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَلَداً، You were to the Messenger, peace be upon him and his family, a son, وَ لِلْقُرْءانِ سَنَداً [مُنْقِذاً] for the Quran, an authority [a savior], وَ لِلأُمَّةِ عَضُداً، and for the nation, a support. وَ فِي الطّاعَةِ مُجْتَهِداً، You were diligent in obedience, حافِظاً لِلْعَهْدِ وَ الْميثاقِ، a protector of the covenant and oath, ناكِباً عَنْ سُبُلِ الْفُسّاقِ، keeping away from the paths of the debauched, [وَ] باذِلاً لِلْمَجْهُودِ، sparing no effort (in fulfilling the duties), طَويلَ الرُّكُوعِ وَ السُّجُودِ، performing prolonged bowing and prostrations, زاهِداً فِي الدُّنْيا زُهْدَ الرّاحِلِ عَنْها، abstaining from the world, like one who is departing from it, ناظِراً إلَيْها بِعَيْنِ الْمُسْتَوْحِشينَ مِنْها، looking upon it (the world) through the eyes of one estranged (from it). آمالُكَ عَنْها مَكْفُوفَةٌ، Your desires from it (the world) were abstentious, وَ هِمَّتُكَ عَنْ زينَتِها مَصْرُوفَةٌ، your efforts were far-removed from its embellishments, وَ ألْحاظُكَ عَنْ بَهْجَتِها مَطْرُوفَةٌ، your glances removed from its joys, وَ رَغْبَتُكَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مَعْرُوفَةٌ، and your desire for the hereafter was well-known, حَتّى إذَا الْجَوْرُ مَدَّ باعَهُ، even when tyranny became wide-spread, وَ أسْفَرَ الظُّلْمُ قِناعَهُ، injustice removed its veil, وَ دَعَا الْغَيُّ أتْباعَهُ، wickedness called upon its followers, وَ أنْتَ في حَرَمِ جَدِّكَ قاطِنٌ، and you were residing in the sanctuary of your grandfather, وَ لِلظّالِمينَ مُبايِنٌ، detached from the oppressors, جَليسُ الْبَيْتِ وَ الْمِحْرابِ، sitting in the house and the prayer niche, مُعْتَزِلٌ عَنِ اللَّذّاتِ وَ الشَّهَواتِ، unattached to (worldly) pleasures and carnal desires, تُنْكِرُ الْمُنْكَرَ بِقَلْبِكَ وَ لِسانِكَ، عَلى حَسَبِ طاقَتِكَ وَ إمْكانِكَ، and renouncing evil in your heart and on your tongue to the extent of your strength and ability. ثُمَّ اقْتَضاكَ الْعِلْمُ لِلإْنْكارِ، then the knowledge demanded you for disavowal (of falsehood), وَ لَزِمَكَ [ألْزَمَكَ] أنْ تُجاهِدَ الْفُجّارَ، and made it incumbent on you to struggle against the deviant. فَسِرْتَ في أوْلادِكَ وَ أهاليكَ، وَ شيعَتِكَ وَ مَواليكَ therefore, you set out in company of your children, kinsfolk, followers, and supporters, وَ صَدَعْتَ بِالْحَقِّ وَ الْبَيِّنَةِ، disclosed the truth and clear proofs, وَ دَعَوْتَ إلَى اللهِ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَ الْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ، summoned people towards Allah with wisdom and fine exhortation, وَ أمَرْتَ بِإقامَةِ الْحُدُودِ، وَ الطّاعَةِ لِلْمَعْبُودِ، ordered the establishment of the limits of divine law, and the obedience to the One Who should be worshipped, وَ نَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْخَبائِثِ وَ الطُّغْيانِ، and forbade (people) from wickedness and oppression. وَ واجَهُوكَ بِالظُّلْمِ وَ الْعُدْوانِ، But, they confronted you with injustice and aggression. فَجاهَدْتَهُمْ بَعْدَ الإيعازِ لَهُمْ [الإيعادِ إلَيْهِمْ] وَ تَأْكيدِ الْحُجَّةِ عَلَيْهِمْ، therefore, you resisted them after advising them and stressing over (divine) proofs against them. فَنَكَثُوا ذِمامَكَ وَ بَيْعَتَكَ، However, they violated your (divine) rights and oath. وَ أسْخَطُوا رَبَّكَ وَ جَدَّكَ، angered your Lord and your grandfather, وَ بَدَؤُوكَ بِالْحَرْبِ، and initiated battle against you. فَثَبَتَّ لِلطَّعْنِ وَ الضَّرْبِ، Hence, you stood firm to spear and strike, وَ طَحَنْتَ جُنُودَ الْفُجّارِ، وَ اقْتَحَمْتَ قَسْطَلَ الْغُبارِ، pulverized the soldiers of the transgressors, and stormed (courageously) into the dust of the battle, مُجالِداً بِذِى الْفَقارِ، كَأنَّكَ عَلِيٌّ الْمُخْتارُ، fighting with thulfaqar as if you were Ali, the chosen one. فَلَمّا رَأوْكَ ثابِتَ الْجاشِ، غَيْرَ خائِفٍ وَ لا خاشٍ، So when they saw you firm, fearless, and courageous, نَصَبُوا لَكَ غَوائِلَ مَكْرِهِمْ، وَ قاتَلُوكَ بِكَيْدِهِمْ وَ شَرِّهِمْ، they set up their most malicious deceptions against you, and fought you with their deceit and viciousness. وَ أمَرَ اللَّعينُ جُنُودَهُ، فَمَنَعُوكَ الْماءَ وَ وُرُودَهُ، the accursed one (Umar Ibn Sa’d) commanded his soldiers, and thus, they prevented you from reaching or receiving water. وَ ناجَزُوكَ الْقِتالَ، وَ عاجَلُوكَ النِّزالَ، they rushed to engage you in combat, descended swiftly upon you, وَ رَشَقُوكَ بِالسِّهامِ وَ النِّبالِ، showering you with arrows and stones, وَ بَسَطُوا إلَيْكَ أكُفَّ الإصْطِلامِ، and moving towards you with uprooting hands. وَ لَمْ يَرْعَوْا لَكَ ذِماماً، وَ لا راقَبُوا فيكَ أثاماً، في قَتْلِهِمْ أوْلِياءَكَ، وَ نَهْبِهِمْ رِحالَكَ، Neither they respected your rights, nor were they mindful of retribution for slaying you and your companions, and plundering your belongings. وَ أنْتَ مُقَدَّمٌ فِي الْهَبَواتِ، وَ مُحْتَمِلٌ لِلأذِيّاتِ، You were in the front line of the storm (of battle), enduring afflictions. قَدْ عَجِبَتْ مِنْ صَبْرِكَ مَلائِكَةُ السَّماواتِ، Indeed, the angels of the heavens were astonished by your patience. فَأحْدَقُوا بِكَ مِنْ كُلِّ الْجِهاتِ، the enemy then surrounded you from all sides, وَ أثْخَنُوكَ بِالْجِراحِ، weakened you by inflicting wounds, وَ حالُوا بَيْنَكَ وَ بَيْنَ الرَّواحِ، prevented you from taking any repose, وَ لَمْ يَبْقَ لَكَ ناصِرٌ، and you had no helper remaining. وَ أنْتَ مُحْتَسِبٌ صابِرٌ، You were bereaved yet patient, تَذُبُّ عَنْ نِسْوَتِكَ وَ أوْلادِكَ، defending your women and children, حَتّى نَكَسُوكَ عَنْ جَوادِكَ، until they caused you to fall from your horse. فَهَوَيْتَ إلَى الأرْضِ جَريحاً، You fell to the ground, wounded, تَطَؤُكَ الْخُيُولُ بِحَوافِرِها، horses trampled you with their hooves, وَ تَعْلُوكَ الطُّغاةُ بِبَواتِرِها، tyrants raised their swords against you, قَدْ رَشَحَ لِلْمَوْتِ جَبينُكَ، the sweat of death appeared on your forehead, وَ اخْتَلَفَتْ بِالاِنْقِباضِ وَ الإنْبِساطِ شِمالُكَ وَ يَمينُكَ، and you continually clenched and unclenched your hands, تُديرُ طَرْفاً خَفِيّاً إلى رَحْلِكَ وَ بَيْتِكَ، secretly gazing upon your caravan and tents, وَ قَدْ شُغِلْتَ بِنَفْسِكَ عَنْ وُلْدِكَ وَ أهاليكَ، while trapped by yourself away from your children and family. وَ أسْرَعَ فَرَسُكَ شارِداً، إلى خِيامِكَ قاصِداً، مُحَمْحِماً باكِياً، (At that time,) your horse distractedly galloped towards your camp, neighing and crying. فَلَمّا رَأيْنَ النِّساءُ جَوادَكَ مَخْزِيّاً، When the women saw your horse distraught, وَ نَظَرْنَ سَرْجَكَ عَلَيْهِ مَلْوِيّاً، and observed your saddle contorted, بَرَزْنَ مِنَ الْخُدُورِ، they came from the tents, ناشِراتِ الشُّعُورِ، disheveling their hair, عَلَى الْخُدُودِ لاطِماتِ الْوُجُوهِ سافِراتٍ، striking their now unveiled cheeks, وَ بِالْعَويلِ داعِياتٍ، calling you by lamenting and wailing, وَ بَعْدَ الْعِزِّ مُذَلَّلاتِ، being humiliated after being honored, وَ إلى مَصْرَعِكَ مُبادِراتٍ، hastening to where you lay wounded. وَ الشِّمْرُ جالِسٌ عَلى صَدْرِكَ، At that time Shimr (L) was sitting on your chest, وَ مُولِغٌ سَيْفَهُ عَلى نَحْرِكَ، quenching his sword with (the blood of) your throat, قابِضٌ عَلى شَيْبَتِكَ بِيَدِهِ، grabbing your beard with his hand, ذابِحٌ لَكَ بِمُهَنَّدِهِ، as he slew you with his sword. قَدْ سَكَنَتْ حَواسُّكَ، Your faculties faded, وَ خَفِيَتْ أنْفاسُكَ، your breath became shallow and ceased, وَ رُفِعَ عَلَى الْقَناةِ رَأْسُكَ، and your head was raised onto a spear. وَ سُبِيَ أهْلُكَ كَالْعَبيدِ، Your family were captured like slaves, وَ صُفِّدُوا فِي الْحَديدِ فَوْقَ أقْتابِ الْمَطِيّاتِ، bound with iron chains atop camels, تَلْفَحُ وُجُوهَهُمْ حَرُّ الْهاجِراتِ، with midday heat scorching their faces. يُساقُونَ فِي الْبَراري وَ الْفَلَواتِ، they were driven across deserts and wastelands, أيْديهِمْ مَغلُولَةٌ إلَى الأعْناقِ، with their hands chained to their necks, يُطافُ بِهِمْ فِي الأسْواقِ، and were paraded around the markets. فَالْوَيْلُ لِلْعُصاةِ الْفُسّاقِ، Woe be unto the wicked transgressors! لَقَدْ قَتَلُوا بِقَتْلِكَ الإسْلامَ، Certainly, by killing you, they have killed Islam, وَ عَطَّلُوا الصَّلوةَ وَ الصِّيامَ، disrupted (the truth of) prayer and fasting, وَ نَقَضُوا السُّنَنَ وَ الأحْكامَ، revoked the (prophetic) customs and the (divine) laws, وَ هَدَمُوا قَواعِدَ الإيمانِ، destroyed the pillars of faith, وَ حَرَّفُوا آياتِ الْقُرْآنِ، distorted the verses of the Quran, وَ هَمْلَجُوا فِي الْبَغْيِ وَ الْعُدْوانِ، and brutally rushed into tyranny and aggression. لَقَدْ أصْبَحَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ مَوْتُوراً، Certainly, (by this event,) the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) was wronged, left alone, and denied vengeance, وَ عادَ كِتابُ اللهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ مَهْجُوراً، the Book of Allah, the mighty and the majestic, was again abandoned, وَ غُودِرَ الْحَقُّ إذْ قُهِرْتَ مَقْهُوراً، truth was betrayed when you were forcibly overcome, وَ فُقِدَ بِفَقْدِكَ التَّكْبيرُ وَ التَّهْليلُ، And with your loss, call for Allah’s glorification and His Unity, وَالتَّحْريمُ وَ التَّحْليلُ، وَ التَّنْزيلُ وَ التَّأْويلُ، His prohibitions, sanctions, revelation, and interpretation were lost. وَ ظَهَرَ بَعْدَكَ التَّغْييرُ وَ التَّبْديلُ، وَ الإلْحادُ وَ التَّعْطيلُ، وَ الأهْواءُ وَ الأضاليلُ، وَ الْفِتَنُ وَ الأباطيلُ، After you, alteration, distortion, infidelity, abandonment (of the Islamic laws), vagary, misguidance, turmoil and falsehood became prevalent. فَقامَ ناعيكَ عِنْدَ قَبْرِ جَدِّكَ الرَّسُولِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ، the announcer of your martyrdom came near the grave of your grandfather, the Messenger (PBUH&HF), فَنَعاكَ إلَيْهِ بِالدَّمْعِ الْهَطُولِ، قائِلا: gave the news to him with tears flowing, saying: يا رَسُولَ اللهِ، قُتِلَ سِبْطُكَ وَ فَتاكَ، 0 the Messenger of Allah! Your brave grandson was slain, وَ اسْتُبيحَ أهْلُكَ وَ حِماكَ، and abuse of your family and supporters were deemed lawful. وَ سُبِيَتْ بَعْدَكَ ذَراريكَ، After you, your progeny were captured, وَ وَقَعَ الْمَحْذُورُ بِعِتْرَتِكَ وَ ذَويكَ، and adversity befell your family and your offspring. فَانْزَعَجَ الرَّسُولُ، وَ بَكى قَلْبُهُ الْمَهُولُ، Indeed, the Messenger (PBUH&HF) became distressed and his depressed heart wept, وَ عَزّاهُ بِكَ الْمَلائِكَةُ وَ الأنْبِياءُ، the Angels and the prophets offered their condolences to him for your martyrdom, وَ فُجِعَتْ بِكَ اُمُّكَ الزَّهْراءُ، Your mother, al-Zahra, became distressed and bereft of you, وَ اخْتَلَفَتْ جُنُودُ الْمَلائِكَةِ الْمُقَرَّبينَ، تُعَزّي أباكَ أميرَالْمُؤْمِنينَ، Legions of favored Angels came in waves to offer their condolences to your father, the Leader of the Faithful, وَ اُقيمَتْ لَكَ الْمَآتِمُ في أعْلا عِلِّيّينَ، Mourning commemorations were held for you in the utmost exalted place Heaven, وَ لَطَمَتْ عَلَيْكَ الْحُورُ الْعينُ، and the dark-eyed Maidens (of Paradise) hit their own heads and faces in grief, وَ بَكَتِ السَّماءُ وَ سُكّانُها، the skies and their inhabitants wept, وَ الْجِنانُ وَ خُزّانُها، as did Paradise and its keepers, وَ الْهِضابُ وَ أقْطارُها، the mountains and their surroundings, وَ الْبِحارُ وَ حيتانُها، the oceans and their fishes, وَ الْجِنانُ وَ وِلْدانُها، the heavens and their servants, وَ الْبَيْتُ وَ الْمَقامُ، the House (Ka’ba), and the Station (of Abraham), وَ الْمَشْعَرُ الْحَرامُ، the Sacred Monument, وَ الْحِلُّ وَ الإحْلإحْرامُ، and Mecca and its sanctuary. اَللّهُمَّ فَبِحُرْمَةِ هذَا الْمَكانِ الْمُنيفِ، O Allah! By the sanctity of this exalted place (the tomb of Imam al-Husain (PBUH)), صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، bestow blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, وَاحْشُرْني في زُمْرَتِهِمْ، assemble me in their company, وَ أدْخِلْنِي الْجَنَّةَ بِشَفاعَتِهِمْ، and admit me to Paradise by their intercession. اَللّهُمَّ إنّي أتَوَسَّلُ إلَيْكَ يا أسْرَعَ الْحاسِبينَ، My Allah!

  8. No, I am not in that position. I am just analyzing this. I do not make fatwas because I not qualified.
  9. Meeting Imam Mahdi

    I do not know. At least I can evaluate the story, also there are stories about Muslims that saw Jesus (as) and they became Christians because they realized they were following the wrong religion. What is your opinion about that? Because someone is saying something you just believe? There are stories of people who died and return (they also remember). I believe some of there stories are just the imagination of the person, some are lies and few might be true. This is my personal opinion. God the almighty knows the truth.
  10. Meeting Imam Mahdi

    This sounds not to be correct! That means God forbids Emam (as) lied to the man that the Molla sent him. The 12 emams and the prophets do say only the truth. Do not accept everything.
  11. Many Muslims shave, they also dress completely modern. It was a question from one of the 12th emams, "Why you do not dress like the prophet?" The answer was "The prophet was wearing the dress of the people of his time, I am also wearing the dress of people of my time". I do not recall the exact narrator, but this was the content. In my opinion, you can shave, as long as you do not damage your skin. Also different Marjaes may have different view. You need to follow...I am just sharing my opinion. I do not know if Sunnies require to grow their beard till certain length, I have seen Sunnies with no beard or have it moderately low. So it is the preference of people. The more bread you have does not mean you are a better person, in contrary it may be a sign of not caring about your face and dress which is against the teachings. All the prophets were used to dress clean.
  12. Do Catholics Worship Mary?

    Obviously this is not worshiping the mother Mary (as), this is a prayer to the almighty God. Read carefully. And God the almighty allows certain holy people to pray for other people. That is alone is not given to anyone. In Islam this is called "shafaea" meaning you request someone holy and close to God to pray for you and if (this is a big if), if God permits they will pray for you and God may grant their wishes. For example Shiats request the prophets, emams, etc to pray for them. Same again. But to receive a prayer from a holy person, that alone is a gift from the God that is not given to everyone. Hope this is cleared up the confusion, no Christians only worship the God. The creator. They have branches like other religions.
  13. Bible and number 12

    Salam and thanks Christian Lady, I am not aware of any text in regard to Ishmael childeren. In regard to Moses (as), I know that some people believe the Sinay mountain is at the north west side of Arabia, it makes some sense as Jews used to live in Arabia before Islam. There are some interesting movies about that: It makes sense as the Saudi Arabia is located on the other side of Red Sea (if we assume Moses passed the Red Sea not the Nile river). This is the site were the Israelies broke their promise and start worshipping the golden cow. Only God knows the truth. God bless you and peace.
  14. At Yazid's palace, after the tragedy, Yazid questioned Zeinab (sa), what did you see, the sister of Emam Hossein (as) replied: "Saw nothing except the beauty". When God told Abraham (as) to not kill your son (use this sheep for now) because there will be a great sacrifice later. The sacrifice happened as it was promised. After all that sacrifices, and what did Ahle beit say at the end of that day: "Oh God please! Accept from us this little". What I learned from Emam Hossein (as) is not force my opinion to other people as he let the people who want to leave to leave in the night, so no one feel shy to leave. Also he mentioned if you do not believe in God and religion, at least believe in humanity and be fair. God bless him and his companions. John (as) martyred :::: Jesus (as) hidden and protected by God and will return Emam Hossein (as) martyred :::: Emam Mahdi (as) hidden and protected by God and will return All linked.
