    Pay Debt Or Go For Ziyarat?

    WS, Is it possible to pay off the minimum balance and still go for Zeyarah? Our great Prophet (saaw) would probably advise you to get rid of the credit cards, and to only make purchases when you have the money.

    Aisha V/s Abu Hurai.

    I disagree. It would be true [to Sunnis] if he replied in the affirmative. It the beginning of the narration, it claims that the Prophet said it. Are we to consider it as saheeh?

    Vanilla Extract

    WS, If there are alcohol-free alternatives, then opt for it instead. If the ingredients contain alcohol or 'natural flavors' as governmental agencies may label them, then I'd advise to avoid it if it's in non-solid form. Allah knows best. Piety is often found in precaution.

    Nasa Conceals The Truth About "laylat Al-Qadr"

    WS, I thought Sunnis took the 27th as the main night...

    True. And some good advice from your side. Masha'Allah. I wanted to give her some basic starting advices that it seems almost everyone ignores. -Stress levels are key. It's said stress accounts for up to 95% of all illnesses. This has a lot to do w/ the immune system and overall health and wellness. If anyone needs stress reducing tips, iA we can offer that as well. -Another culprit may be from lack of knowing (or ignorance [or shayateen]) of certain truths, which may create doubts, and put one in a state of uneasy worry. This is where I like your comment about the subconscious mind; she needs to consciously build new patterns in action, and in time, it shall form into a new habit, subconsciously. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/04/16/bacteria-on-gut-flora-causes-ocd.aspx

    WS, You should probably do a whole body cleanse. And then supplement with good quality nutrition. This way your body shall function more normally, inshaa'Allah.

    Debating Sunni, Any Tips?

    Salaam, One piece of advice I like to remind myself with is, to ONLY focus on usool al-deen with non-Shia, because if they don't understand the basics, it's almost impossible for them to get into more complex matters of Islam. Of course, I may digress at times, but I think therein should lie the main focus.
  10. Salaam, I wanted to show a Sunni professor a hadeeth that shows that the Prophet Muhammad was a Nabi since birth, but became a Rasool once he started delivering the message. If you know of any such hadeeth, please post it. JazakAllah.

    Knives were used in sinful ways as well, back in those days. Do we have narrations that forbid knives? I don't think so. To me, I think it's more than that. I would avoid chess, just to be on the safe side. It's a gamble [pun intended] just throwing aside the 'ahadeeth about chess.

    Please keep in mind that education is different from intellect. Having information is different from having KNOWledge. A dictionary may be filled with endless information and definitions, but the editors and compilers are not always Shia Muslims. Please reflect on this.

    Eating Halal And Healthy?

    Yeah, Inshaa'Allah. It would be nice to have a cow, or even a goat (since it should be way cheaper), and have them grazing on grass only, and not grains. This way there won't be an omega fatty acid imbalance in the animal, and in turn effecting our health when we eat or drink from the animal.

    It's different with our a'immah, because we're told via 'ahadeeth to follow the Imams of Ahlul Bayt (as). It isn't up for elections.
