  1. Am I being to extreme?

    سلام عليكم، Recently I have decided to make a few life changes I read and learn more about the religion of Islam and more and more I stop doing these small sins such as listening to music, not speaking to women for none work related issues I started taking the religion more seriously and whenever my friends or family tell me about this change they think I’m weird or too extreme. My friends and family are very liberal and when they see the way I act they always complain. I don’t get, is what I’m doing wrong? Is following the religion 100% avoiding to sin(not only the big ones, aswell as the small ones where so many people Muslim people do). I know Allãh is the most merciful yet in my head stopping these small sins feel amazing it changes a lot in you but in other peoples eyes they think it’s extreme and you should be abit more liberal and relaxed.. what do you guys thing?
  2. I feel awful

    So my dad is a sunni and I'm a shiite, his ideas of the history of islam is the typical i.e all sahabas of the prophet were good I had a long conversation with him today and I mentioned my idea of the first 3 caliphs and who are they in the eyes of the Shia and he was completely shocked, I am not very knowledgeable but I do know my facts when it comes to who was good and who was bad or right and wrong. My dad gave me alot of good points about my ideas and thoughts and one point I had a little doubt to what I was saying and honestly there are times where I think how are we to say that we are right and they are wrong or vice versa this history happened ages ago how would we know from both sects what is right and wrong? but I do know that ahlul bayt are second after the prophet and their rank in my heart are superior to any other feeling and my dad feels the same way yet he still respects the enemies of the prophet and ahlul bayt like calling muwaiyah (RA) like to me thats crazy but for him its something very normal. I now feel extremely bad because my dad told me I made him upset and it was never my intentions I just do not want him to leave this earth without knowing the truth because believing in the oneness of god and prophet Muhammed(saww) isn't enough. I honestly don't know what to do with my father and it really upsets me. What do you guys think I should do to help him see the truth? I have tried many times yet he wouldn't come about. Do you think I should try to do something or it isn't right?
  3. What is a good enough reason to pray?

    I usually perform my prayer as to not disappoint Allah for all that he has given me is that a good enough reason to pray?

  6. Peace be upon all of you, for whoever reads this, please keep me in your prayers and dua to get accepted into university to study medicine and that my final grades are good. May Allah accept your prayers and mine. thank you
  7. Oiling during fasting

    does this also include mouthwash?
  8. @thulfiqaar salam brothers and sisters, I was speaking to my father regarding Islam, He told me that all other sects in Islam such as Wahhabi and the Sub sects of Shia are considered muslims. I understand Islam is believing in the oneness of Allah and that Muhammed(PBUH) is his messenger but it cant be all that can it? Like the true religion of Islam is la ilaha ila Allah w muhammed rasool ullah and following the ahlul bayt. I am a Shia, my father is a sunni and he was taught things that are considered in our sect bad. for example, my dad says muawaiyah(r.a) but i curse the name everytime he mentions them and at the same time he respects the ahlul bayt. My mother is a Shia aswell, only problem is that my dad and brother consider Wahhabism, Ismaelism and the other shia sects as muslims, is this considered right or wrong?
  9. Dua

    Salam Brother, i included a few supplications, but reciting these supplications on their own is not sufficient you should after every prayer thank Allah and pray for him. You can always ask for something after you finish prayers, i personally usually do my thanks and extra prayers after Isha'a prayer. Hope this was of help. Dua Mashlool This du-a'a known as "supplication of the youth stricken for his sin," is quoted from the work of Kaf-ami and from Muhaj al Da-wat by Sayyid ibn Tawus. Through Imam Hussain(as) it is reported that one day he and his father, after performing Hajj, caught sight of a paralysed young man crying his eyes out in repentance. They went near to console him and find out the reason of his sorry plight. He was a habitual sinner, always teased his father, disobeyed him and treated him with contempt. One day, disgusted, the father invoked curse upon him. So he was affected with paralysis. Then and there Imam Ali ibn abi Talib(as) wrote his dua'a and gave it to him with instruction to recite after Isha salat. Next day fully cured, he came to Imam Ali and said that he had recited the dua'a as told and went to sleep. He saw the Holy Prophet (sa) in the dream. The holy prophet, gently touched his body with his hand and asked him to remember this dua'a as it contain ismi azam (the great name of Allah). Recite this dua'a after Isha salat. It brings countless blessings. All your legitimate desires will be fulfilled. It drives away poverty and sickness. Sins are for given. Debts are cleared. Enemies become friends. Domestic affairs are set aright. Disputes are settled in your favour. Prisoners are set free mental worries disappear. Prosperity, sound mind and healthy body stand by you at all times. Mercy and forgiveness of sins are the main advantages the almighty Allah makes available if this dua'a is recited regularly. http://www.duas.org/mashlool.htm Dua-e-Yastasheer Ibna tawus in his book Muhaj al Dawat and Kafami in his book Misbah narrate this dua'a on the authority of Imam Ali ibna abi Talib who learned it from the Holy Prophet. The Holy Prophet advised him to recite this dua'a regularly, whether in prosperity or poverty, till death, because it unveils the secretes of creation and divine strategy. Words can not describe its merits. Intelligent can not describe its meanings. No sooner someone begins to recite it, Almighty Allah send blessings, and his mercy surrounds him, peace and tranquillity descend upon him. The sound of this dua'a moves to and from around the arsh, its direct destination. All his desired are fulfilled. His needs are taken care of. He gets freedom from wants and is kept safe from hardships and misfortunes. His mind opens up new dimensions of contemplation. On the day of judgement he will be received by Allah with respect and honour. It cures insanity if recited before a mad man. It relives pain of childbirth if recited before the expectant mother. It recited on forty Fridays consecutively all sins are forgiven. It cures sickness and disperses sorrows. For him who recites it before going to sleep Allah appoints one thousand angels to pray for him till morning. He who recites it and dies within 24 hours it treated like a martyr. It is recommended that it be performed with ablution. http://www.duas.org/alaviya/dua1.htm Dua Kumayl According to Allama Majlisi (on whom be Allah's Mercy) Kumayl had attended an assembly in the Mosque at Basra which was addressed by Imam Ali in the course of which the night of the 15th of Shaban was mentioned. Imam Ali said-"Whosoever keeps awake in devoutness on this night and recites the Du'a of Prophet Khizr, undoubtedly that person's supplication will be responded to and granted. When the assembly at the Mosque had dispersed, Kumayl called at the house where Imam Ali was staying, and requested him to acquaint him with Prophet Khizr's "Du'a". Imam Ali asked Kumayl to sit down, record and memorise the "Du'a" which Imam Ali dictated to Kumayl. Imam Ali then advised Kumayl to recite this "Du'a" on the eve of (i.e. evening preceding) every Friday, or once a month or at least once in every year so that, added Imam Ali, "Allah may protect thee from the evils of the enemies and the plots contrived by impostors. O' Kumayl! in consideration of thy companionship and understanding, I grant thee this honour of entrusting this "Du'a" to thee." https://www.duas.org/kumayl.htm Dua'a E Tawassul Shaykh Tusi says, in his book Misbah, that Iam Hassan bin Ali Al Askari (as)wrote this dua'a for Abu Muhammad who requested him to teach him the proper way of reciting salawat. Allama Majlisi has mentioned this dua'a on the authority of Ibn babawayh who confidently says that there is no difficulty or problem that this dua'a does not solve. The merciful Allah is beseeched in the name of and for the sake of the Holy prophet and his Ahl ul Bayt. who are amongst the best human beings in status with HIM . It is also known as "quick-fulfillment-of-all-legitimate-desires" dua'a. https://www.duas.org/tawassul.htm
  10. sunni to shia convert

    salam brother, I am sure there will be others to help you with details on the history as i am not knowledgeable in that part. I would like to point out something, there is no such thing as converting in Islam. There is only certain additions to bring into practicing the religion, things my brothers and sisters in the Sunni sect do not do much of. I am not speaking about all Sunni but a few percentage of them. I would advice you to not look at Shia Islam as if it was a different religion because it is not, it is the accurate representation of the religion. Shia means follower, as we are the followers of the prophet Muhammed PBUH and his progeny that is all there is. We practice the religion through them and their teachings, like how to be a better human being how to respect one another. I was like you when i was younger, my father was a Sunni and my mother was Shia. I read about both sides and i decided to follow the shia sect because i saw truth in it, as you should too brother. The Majority of the shia sects are from the Ithnaa Aashirya, which basically means the 12 imams, i am sorry for not being of much help i am sure someone will be of help to you. I wish you all the best
  11. salam brothers and sisters, I am close to exams and i would like to ask you to provide me with duas to help with studying. I lose motivation sometimes and get distracted or procrastinate alot. Is there any dua that will help me over come these difficulties? and are there duas to help when it comes to actually studying, such as remembering and easy to learn the work? Thank you very much,
  12. Sinning and forgiveness

    salam brothers and sisters, When I sin or whenever someone sins and he or she asks Allah for forgiveness for he is the all forgiving. Is our sin forgiven no matter? And if we are forgiven for all the sins we committed do we still get punished for them? thank you
  13. Mom won't talk to me

    go up to her and sincerely apologise, kiss her head, hand and feet to show how sorry you are and give her a hug.
  14. need help with dream interpretation

    salam brothers and sisters, Last night i have come across a dream and do not understand the meaning behind it. It happened after i prayed fajr at like 5. I was in london with my father, there was 2 non muslims with us. we wanted to go across the street but instead of going around we went straight through this abandoned mosque, one of the non muslims said it was haunted. But my dad and i were okay with it, so we went to the mosque and we started hearing noises like screaming shouting and banging noises. My father and i were holding hands and kept reading our ayas and duaas, we were going down a flight of stairs and the noise kept getting louder and louder. I kept shouting ayas and duas and salawat, i reached the last room and it was a room where the jhin or something came and tried to attack me, it was the only one which did. So when that happened i started reading surah al naas and al akhlaas after that all the noise in the mosque stopped and i woke up. This dream probably has no meaning to it but i felt something about it, i cant seem to know what it is. Any help from my brothers and sisters will be great, thank you very much w asalaam walaikum
