  1. Which prophet did this

    Do you have a reference for that? I want to read the story again
  2. There was a prophet of god in Islam who did not open the door to a beggar and preferred his family over him. The beggar complained to Allah and Allah became angry with this prophet. I don’t remember where I read this and which prophet it was. Anyone know about this story?
  3. How do you end off recitations

    Like reciting out loud in a gathering, for example Quran or ziyarat. if i just stop, people don’t know I’m done and they awkwardly stand or wait for the next verse. In the khoja community you have to say sadaqallahul aleeyul adheem after Quran or when reciting ziyarat waritha, they say this extra ziyarat for Imam ar-Ridha and the twelfth imam. I’m unfamiliar with the culture so how do you end recitations in your culture?
  4. Corpus Quran

    It's up again alhamdulillah
  5. Does anyone know what happened to corpus.quran.com? I heavily relied on it to help me get through my Quran studies and now I'm lost. May Allah reward you all for your grief for Imam al-Husayn, peace be upon him.
  6. Thank you everyone for your thoughts!
  7. Let me know your thoughts from an Islamic viewpoint!
  8. 5-79 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad, on the authority of Marvak ibn Ubayd, on the authority of some companions that he asked Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), “What is fine for a man to see of a woman, if he is unfamiliar62 to her?” The Imam (MGB) told him, “The face, the two palms of her hands, and the two feet.” It is from al-khisal. I'm wondering about Sistani's fatwa now about women having to cover feet in front of unfamiliar men.

    Perhaps you could provide an authentic reference for the story you mentioned so others can better guide you.
  10. Cat hair and prayer

    I remember a ticker at the top of the webpage years ago saying that cat hair does not invalidate prayer so I thought the ruling is changed now as it can invalidate prayer.
  11. Cat hair and prayer

    1Question: What is your ruling about cat hair on a person's dress during salat? Answer: If there is one cat hair or there are two or three hairs on a person's body or clothe, his prayer is in order but if there are more than that, his prayer becomes void, as an obligatory precaution. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01162/
  12. Cat hair and prayer

    I recently came across Sistani's ruling on cat hair. You used to be able to pray with cat hair. Why has the rule changed?
  13. I was physically abused as a child and I've been pushing it into my subconscious for years now. It has impacted my psychological health in that all these years, I feel like I'm a bad child. I keep blaming myself but I know that I didn't deserve it. What's so hard about it now is that my parents still don't express any regret saying that I deserved it and that it wasn't as bad as I say it was. I've been struggling with creating a healthy relationship with them and I've really tried as painful as it has been. However, since my parents say they will never change and I'm the one with the attitude, this relationship never gets better. Now my question is: do you have any practical tips for maintaining Silat ar-Rahm, keeping in mind that I still live in their house?
  14. Shia in Hamilton and Niagara

    Alaykum Salaam, I live in Hamilton but I haven't been here for long and I'll be leaving soon. Those are the two mosques that I know of; however, I've never been to any of them. There's a shia group at McMaster that is active from September to April; this is their Facebook group. You'll be able to get more information from them as many of them live here with their families.
