  1. Asalamu Alaikum all, First I wanted to say I'm not sure if I've posted this in the right forum, but if I didn't, I hope that InshaAllah someone can put this post in its right forum. So I wanted to ask and/or start a thread of tips from all of those who were or are currently in college/university in how one can continue to maintain iman and a soft heart while completing numerous amount of work for college. What are some things you have done to strongly hold onto the deen and still complete your school work? May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى bless you all. I hope that InshaAllah this thread goes well.
  2. Hormones injections in cows

    I got this reply for Sayed Ali Khamenei's office. So I'm guessing it's okay? Unless it isn't because I didn't say that sometimes the hormones don't end up going away in the milk.
  3. Hormones injections in cows

    Wasalam I think there is a difference between enzymes and hormones as the enzymes are already coming from the animal and being used in products and I can see why there is a debate on halal and haram. But the hormones are something that are synthetic and are injected in the cow to allow them to produce more milk and some of that may end up in the milk even if it's a small percentage. I was just wondering if that milk is still permissible.
  4. Hormones injections in cows

    Asalamu Alaikum all, I hope you guys are well. I asked something like this before and even emailed Sayed Ali Khamenei's office and I'm waiting for a reply but I'm still confused but: Are we allowed to drink milk that has rbgh or rbst? These are hormones that are injected into cows that allow them to produce more milk than usual. The only thing is when the cows produce milk, some of what they were injected with do end up in the milk in some way even if it's a small percent. I've been trying not to eat dairy but I don't think that's logical but are we allowed to drink milk that was produced from those hormones? Are they halal? Or can we eat cookies or anything else that has milk. Please let me know. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى bless you all.
  5. Prayer questions

    This was extremely helpful and eye opening thanks so much!
  6. Prayer questions

    Is there evidence of this? I do taqleed of Sayed Ali Khamenei
  7. Prayer questions

    Thank you so much for explaining it to me it means a lot! It's something I found out a while back. You're right that it's complicated until you write it all out.
  8. Prayer questions

    Ah okay, I understand. So basically in my example, the najis thing will remain najis but after the 4th time of coming into contact with wetness that person will not become najis right?

    Thank you!
  10. Prayer questions

    Thanks so much this was beneficial for me! also so random out of prayers but I had an extra question: I heard of this 3 najis rule. That if something is najis and something comes into contact with that thing after 3 times it is no longer najis. The example I saw of this let's say something is najis. If I'm tahir and wetness is involved an I touch that thing, I am najis. If a family member with wetness also touches that thing they also become najis. If another person with wetness also touches that thing they become najis too. But after the third time, the next person with wetness does not become najis. My question is, do different people have to be involved for it to be tahir after 3 times? For example if the one person came into contact with that one thing with wetness 3 different times, after the 4th time does that person not become najis? Or does it have to spread through different means?
  11. Prayer questions

    Asalamu Alaikum all, I had some questions and regarding prayer and was wondering if any of you guys could help me. So here it goes: 1) I've read on here about how men and women have different ways to prostrate in which parts have to touch on the ground. Apparently along with the hands, forehead, and knees, and toes, women's elbows have to touch the ground too. Is this true? Does this mean the forearms have to be on the ground too? I'm a title confused. 2) Also, I've seen things on here about conflicting views on turning to say Salam on the right and on the left. Apparently the prayer ends after we say salam 3 times at the end. Is it true that we can't turn our heads to the right and left to say Salam? Do we also have to do takbir after the salams and have our hands reach our ears? I do taqleed of Sayed Ali Khamenei if that helps. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى bless you all.
  12. Habitual sinning

    I don't know exactly about the NEVER being cured but I know that Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى forigives all sins. Sometimes the heart is so black that the person doesn't feel emotion while speaking and they don't know how to properly repent. More than anything that person has to pray to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى to soften his/her heart despite the hardness of heart or the struggle to feel emotion. Again, I don't know about the NEVER part but remember that shaytan wants us to believe that we have no way of coming back to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى because of our mistakes and so shaytan wants us to give up. No matter how much sinning has been made, no matter the lack of emotion you have to constantly be praying and talking to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. In addition, you have to make sure other things that are wajib for you are being done. If one is struggling with a hard heart and feeling that sinning habitual, you have to make sure other parts of you are not slipping. Make sure you are praying all daily prayers on time. Some other things that I've learned that are beneficial and good to do is make sure to read Quran and listen to Quran as much as you can every day. Even if it's 1 Ayah. Reading Ayatul Kursi as much as possible is good too. Try to read it after every prayer as well. Make duas to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى as much as possible. Never ever give up. Even if one has a hard heart, they shouldn't feel completely helpless and hopeless. Shaytan wants that person to give up on repenting or trying because they've come into sinning so much. One should always pray to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى to soften his/her heart.
  13. Habitual sinning

    I know this is a reply to only part of your question but I once read on here (I can't remember who said it) that if one is unable to cry then he/she should picture their tears flowing down their face and make it feel like they're actually crying to produce more emotion. Sometimes when the heart is hardened it seems difficult to cry but one should continue to pray to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى to soften their heart. Even when the heart is soft.

    @Ashvazdanghe Thank you for your input and sources! It is truly appreciated. You sent a lot of things. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى bless you.

    @notme Have you ever heard of rbst? They are hormones that are apparently still given to dairy cows and are can be in milk even if it's less than 1%. Sorry to be annoying I just am one of those Muslims that do have the problem of taking things to far and am bad at knowing where to draw the line. I struggle with this and makes me upset.
