  1. Marrying an Iraqi sister (Advice)

    Salam, I am Iraqi and there are certain cultural practices regarding proposals. However being that you are Spanish I am sure they will understand in the case you don't follow a certain cultural practice. Also keep in mind that some Iraqis may not follow traditional Iraqi practices. I'll list the process below: -A male elder (usually the father) will meet with her male guardian (usually the father) -They will discuss the specifics of the dowry. -After they agree on an amount they will set up a date for the religious marriage ceremony consisting of only close family and friends (It is organized by the bride) -At the religious ceremony the men will be in one room while the women in the other, A sheikh will marry you guys and a dinner will be served. -Women usually have a party after the religious ceremony and you will attend and present her with a gift (usually a gold set consisting of earrings, a ring, and a necklace) -After that is the wedding which the groom usually pays for. Like I said these practices aren't followed by everyone and it would probably be best to consult your soon to be wife or one of her male relatives if your close to them.
  2. Favourite Arabic sweet

    I came here to say the same thing, Knafeh. I find most Arabic deserts to be to sweet and heavy.
  3. Becoming Freemason change status as Shi'i?

    Salam, I was under the impression that freemasons were a devil worshipping cult but that was before I actually visited their website and read about them. From what I know they seem to be more of a men's club to socialize and network. I personally don't know of anyone that is a mason and I haven't looked into it thoroughly but I'm currently under the opinion that it wouldn't conflict with Shia beliefs. Even if one was to join they can always decide to leave if they find it conflicting with their religion (I think).
  4. Salam, From what I know every large major city has a big Shia Community he can hopefully get to know. I personally live in Ottawa and find the community to be well connected. At the same time I've visited Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver and found it to be just as good, all very welcoming. I think he should focus more on which school he would rather go to. If he does end up choosing to go to a school in Ottawa, let me know and I can hopefully show him around. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- www.TwelveGems.com Islamic Jewellery
  5. Economics in Shia Islam

    I'm in the same boat as you, I'd be very interested in a book that discusses Islamic Economics from a Shia perspective. I did a quick search on al-islam and the following book came up: What do You Know about Islamic Economics? Author(s): Ayatullah Sayyid Muhammad Baqir As-Sadr A short text about the nature of the Islamic economic system, its distinction from Capitalism and Marxism, and the primary obstacles encountered in its application to society today. Inshalla once I finish the current book I'm reading I can start this one.
  6. TwelveGems: Online store that sells Islamic Rings

    Thank you very much. I appreciate the feedback you made really great points. What I mean my "Islamic" rings is that they are made based on the narrations provided to us i.e. the type of gemstone and the material of the band. In terms of the information on the gemstones I can definitely add natural as all the stones are, but to add any further information it would be necessary to get the gemstones examined by a jeweller. Since these are mostly semi precious stones they don't hold the same value as emeralds or rubies and would drastically increase the prices of the rings. I hope to eventually expand my inventory and when I do inshalla I will refer to your post.
  7. I've read a few dystopian novels and I'll list them from in my opinion best to worse: 1. Brave New world 2. 1984 3. The giver 4. Animal farm 5. The handmaid's tale
  8. Salam Alaikum, As a Muslim living in Canada I found it very hard to purchase good looking Shia rings. So I decided to start an online store myself www.TwelveGems.com. I made sure that the rings followed the traditions of the Prophet (saws) and the Imams (as). Some our gemstones include: Yemeni Aqeeq, Fairouz, and Hadid Sini. If anyone has any questions about Twelve Gems or about muslim rings in general, I'd be more than happy to answer them to the best of my.
