  1. Record Your voice Ziyarat Ashura

    Do we have to show our face?
  2. Inside Yourself..

    1) Goals: - Become pious and reach a state where I can shed tears out of the love for Allah. - Become a very successful Civil Engineer. - Make sure my future kids are raised up in the best way possible. 2) The world clearly hinders most of my goals, except the Civil Engineering goal (as there is a lot of construction happening lol). 3) Daily prayers, Quran and reading the biographies of the Prophets (as), Ahlulbayt (as) and Imams (as). 4) I'm not sure. I just wanna be a true Shia, then Allah will take care of the rest. 5) I remember death, sins and my grave. 6) I wish to die with humility and in a state of worship. I always pray to Allah that I die when I am worshipping him. I also stay away from harram stuff such as music, masturbation, attending gatherings where music is played etc.. 7. N/A 8. N/A
  3. sister wont go to majalis

    If people like you go to the Imambargah, I'd rather sit at home and commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (as).
  4. Can being "too religious" damage a relationship?

    This relates a lot to me. I love debating and talking about religion to many of my siblings who are not religious at all. It suddenly raises a lot of tension and they get annoyed. This is my advice: 1) Don't talk that much about Islamic laws. Don't be those mullahs who constantly pick on people and say "wear hijab properly!", "thats not how you wipe your feet", "you aren't reciting quran properly" etc... Although you should encourage this, it will make you seem too strict and hard. 2) Be a bit fun and religious at the same time. Most religious guys are stereotyped to be 'boring and dull', and some of them are tbh lol. So make sure you do have a laugh every now and then, and feel free to bring religion at an appropriate time. 3) You need to make people aware that religion is making you a great human being. Focus a lot on your akhlaq and then people will instantly be attracted to you're personality and character. Most people just don't like religious guys who are only religious on the exterior, such as praying, fasting, keeping beard etc So perfect your personality and people will love the fact that you're religious. 4) Be an all-rounder. Try to improve yourself in every aspect in your life. People will actually appreciate you being religious whilst being great in all other fields of life. So try to be good at studies, social life, sports etc.
  5. Our Value and Importance

    Man that page doesn't represent what most people define as "Ahlul Sunnah". This is the facebook page of Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi- who is a Sufi scholar. I know many Sufi Muslims who commemorate Muharram and this is nothing new at all. I am shocked at many mainstream Muslims scholars like NAK, Yasir Qadhi, Mufti Menk, Yahya Adel Ibrahim, Omar Suleiman etc. who for some reason are busy giving sermons on characters who supported the Umayyad caliphate. They all know about the tragedy of Karbala but refuse to share it with their viewers. Allah will definitely question them on the day of judgment as to why they are shy of openly talking about the sacrifice of Imam Hussein(as).
  6. Our Value and Importance

    Honestly why are the Sunni speakers silent? not a single lecture on Imam Hussein(as)? no Facebook post or anything? It is just plain ridiculous! I feel sad that even Hindus know more about the battle of Karbala than many modern day Muslims.
  7. The limits of nohay

    Okay. I'm sure you have heard of Karbal Tou Piya Likhda (I love this noha btw). My dad made me listen to a song called 'sheeshe ka tha dil mera" which is literally a copy of the noha 'Karbal tou piya likhda'. Be careful it's Muharram plus video might not be very appropriate (I'm not telling you to listen to it). This took away the spirit of the noha. I don't know if the noha copied the song or the song copied the noha. There were a couple more but I completely forgot. I'll let you know when I remember.

    Great lecture by Ammar Nakashwani
  9. The limits of nohay

    @S.M.H.A. Thanks for the response. Yeah you raised a very strong point.
  10. Thoughts 2017

    Thanks for this inspirational verse. This assures me that Allah is aware of what I'm going through.
  11. The limits of nohay

    Salam, I find it a shame that some Pakistani nohay have tunes which are literally stolen from Indian songs.There is no point of 'prolonged singing' to create fancy tunes. I feel that it takes away the message of Imam Hussein (as). I have heard many nohay with this exaggerated touch. We need to be careful to know when a noha becomes impermissible. I find that a lot of them are just means of "having a bit of fun" kinda like music. Some people who do mattam are more concerned about whether the mattam has a good rhythm or not, and at this point it is just about pure entertainment. I know many people who like nohay and don't care about what the message is. I don't have a bias against any culture or anything, but we really need to know our limits.
  12. Thoughts 2017

    I can't deal with so much ignorance. It just hurts to see my own siblings belittle the message of Imam Hussein (as). They keep listening to music (which is harram anyways) even during Muharram. They refuse to go to majlisis and would only show up to the 10th (even then they are forced by my parents). I hope Allah guides them.
  13. Infallibility

    Salam, I know we Shias believe in the infallibility of all prophets (as), which makes perfect sense. However doesn't this verse imply that prophet Moses (as) sinned? And he entered the city at a time of inattention by its people and found therein two men fighting: one from his faction and one from among his enemy. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Moses struck him and [unintentionally] killed him. [Moses] said, "This is from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is a manifest, misleading enemy." (Quran 28:15) He said, "My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me," and He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. (Quran 28:16)

  15. Greatests Shia Scholars of the Past

    There are a lot of great scholars However I find Tabatabai very special and he was the first scholar I got inspired from when I started practicing Islam(as before I was not religious). I love reading about Tabatabai's ife as there is a lot to learn. Also, I love Khamanei. There is just something sweet about his personality.
