  1. Please help!

    Question: Salam, There is a online website that allows normal people like me to be able to sell products on it and when i do my product will not be shown on the first page because it is still new and will be shown on much later pages, now there are well known online services which i hear many people use when launching their products on this website to rank their product to the first page so it generates more sales. The online website which we would be selling on states in its terms of service:" Any attempt to manipulate sales rank is prohibited. You may not solicit or knowingly accept fake or fraudulent orders, including placing orders for your own products. You may not provide compensation to buyers for purchasing your products or provide claim codes to buyers for the purpose of inflating sales rank. In addition, you may not make claims regarding a product's best seller rank in the product detail page information, including the title and description."Now i was planning on using one of these product launch services which i would basically pay them to give a certain amount of my product in giveaways so that it would appear as though it is being bought by actual customers and in doing so rank my product to the first page so that customers would actually view and potentially purchase my product. Now if i don't use this, my product would most likely not generate any sales because it would be all the way at the end of the search results. This may be going against the websites terms of service but it is virtually the only way to put it in front of the customer and have him/her view it. Would me using one of these product launch services be haram even though all i am trying to do is rank my product to the first page so it generates sales? The office of sayed sistani london says: "In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the MercifulIt is not allowed as long as that is against the websites terms of service that you already agreed for." But when i agreed to it i never really read it (the terms of service), also i am paying them a fee just to be allowed to sell on their platform, also from every unit i sell they get a part of that sale and if someone launches a product with them, virtually the only way that you would be able to make sales is to use one of these services which would allow me to giveaway my product at a highly discounted price just so that i would be able to generate sales and move my product listing up to the first page so that normal shoppers would be able to view and potentially purchase it. Is it actually Haram to do this even though at the end of the day i would be giving away my own product which i bought from myself? This website by the way.

  6. About Riyaa

    Salam Alaykom, If while praying i by accident mess up a little in reciting the surahs or anything in the prayer and i worry about what the people around me think me and not what Allah thinks me but then i try to remove that thought from my mind and put what Allah thinks instead. Is this Riyaa and what can i do to get rid of this feeling?
  7. Salam, i have recently been having a lot of extra free time on my hands and I've been just not using it wisely, ive been just wasting all my day after my few hours at work. I keep telling myself that im gonna start reading Islamic books but i never get around to it and just keep procrastinating. To be honest I've never really read any islamic books fully before, ive gotten most of what i know from watching English lectures. I read the quran a little from time to time, but i just hate the way I've become i want a balanced lifestyle and i want to start feeling focused and have a goal to get to. Sorry for rambling on about my feelings but I hope you guys can give me some guidance as to what to start doing and where to start. I had in my mind to start reading basic islamic books as a beginning but I don't want to read some of it and then leave it, i want to finish it and understand it. Please give me your guidance and recommendations.

  23. confused about my job

    what do you mean?
  24. confused about my job

    salam, i have been contemplating on leaving my job for a while now, the reason being is that there is haram music (rap, love, etc) playing 24/7 in there and the people i work with all use bad cuss words a lot although its mostly in joking with each other and towards me as well and even though telling them that i dont like to be talked to that way, lead to no avail. Also i sometimes feel like im not as bothered by the music anymore because of how much ive heard it there and probably becoming desensitized to it as well, as you know here in the US you'd be lucky to go a day without music entering your ears because of how common it is and what hurts even more is that everything i just stated with me is happening by arab non practicing shia muslims, i also feel like my heart is getting dirtier and its as if i just want to get away from all this to a place where there is no one. I want to know what you guys think i should do and considering the fact that i have younger siblings dependent on me to provide and my parents not living with us currently they are overseas and we are here as students. i have already asked my marja sayed sistani on working in a place where there is music playing 24/7 and i believe he said that as long as its not intentional its fine> also the reason im still contemplating on it is because im not sure if this is a test that Allah wants me to stay and go through or i should quit this job for the sake of Allah and rely on him to provide me with something better,,, im just confused now..... please give me your advice and guidance
