  2. Shias In Brighton?

    Thank you Zahra, looking forward to hearing from you! Out of curiosity are there any Shias or communities set up anywhere in east Sussex? Surely there are some brothers n sisters between Eastbourne n Worthing??? Do they all go to London during Muharram??? Come on people, where are you? I'm trying to establish a bigger community so we can join up and get a permanent place.... Can't keep going back n forth to London. Especially with a young family.... Ws

  8. Women Can't Sight Moon?!?!?

    After much discussion, and mosltly laughing from my husband :dry: , the only reasoning I could think of is that men, physiologically, have better eye sight. Just like women have better hearing, scientifically proven by the way! I cannot see myself sending such a silly question to his website...I'm sure he's got better things to figure out....(like EID!) :P
  9. Eid Ul Fitr Prayer Alkhoei London

  10. When Is Your Eid?

    (salam) Mind if I ask which mosque in London will be doing the eid prayer on Wenesday...plus what time as we wil driving from Brigton!!! no such thing as a shia here! :(
  11. (salam) I was just reading his question and answer section on the web site (english) www.sistani.org. And I saw this : Question : What is the rulings of His Eminence Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Ali Sistani (May Allah protect him) on sighting of the new moon crescent and determining the 1st day of the month? § Answer : Sighting of the new moon is ascertained by knowledge of the actual sighting or through solid news of such sighting, or some other means. Certainty can also be achieved through common knowledge. Amongst other sources of ascertaining the sighting of the new moon is the lapse of thirty days on Sha’ban’s crescent for the start of Ramadhan to be confirmed, or thirty days on the crescent of Ramadhan for the new moon of Shawwal to be confirmed [and so on]. Sighting can also be confirmed by the evidence of two witnesses of impeccable character (adl). However, sighting of the new moon is not recognised by the evidence of women :o , or by the evidence of one just witness, even with oath, or by the words of astrologers. Neither by its absence after dawn dusk, so that it could be said that it belongs to a previous night, nor by the evidence of two just witnesses, if the evidence is not confined to their own sighting of the newly born moon. Sighting is not recognised too when it is seen before zawaal so that the day of sighting be from the ensuing month. The impression of a ring it may give, proving that it could belong to a previous night, cannot be accepted as well. Does anyone know why that it?? Because it seriously makes me want to consider things? :wacko: Um Laith :Hijabi:
  12. Pregnancy And Cravings

    Salam Um hussayn, God help you with being pregnant in ramadan or are you not fasting? I use to eat ice cream in the middle of winter day and night. A friend use to crunch ice through out her pregnancy. Old wives tale is that you shouldn't itch if you're craving something and not getting it! Otherwise the child will be born with a birthmark! So enjoy it while you can and eat what you like!!! ;) Salam, Um Laith
