    Thoughts 2017

    Thank you for the welcome brother. Yeah, I see it's quite a medley of things. I'm taking baby-steps again to figure out where I want to be on the forum. But nevertheless - good to see some old time folks here.

    Thoughts 2017

    What?! What in the world happened to ShiaChat? It's an entirely new look, new feel, new everything! I've been away for far too long this time it seems. I hope all my dearest brothers and sisters are doing very very well. I leave you all in Allah's protection while I'm gone now...hopefully for a few hours this time. Wanna catch up with all the happenings here on SC. **Three loud salawaat please**

    News of death of brother Toyib

    Done. Sorry I couldn't log in yesterday to say that. I can recite half a juz' perhaps today, if someone is lagging behind and not able to read. May Allah reward everyone here immensely for the khatm and - may He expand the grave of our beloved brother, flood it with His Noor, ease his journey in barzakh and grant him a very lofty station, behaqqe Mohammed wa Aale Mohammed.

    Sister starlight, can you hand over a juz' to me? I'll try to recite it today itself. Any juz' will do.
  6. Alaykum assalaam, Thank you for sharing your thoughts brother/sister. Since you mentioned that you want to "be Shia", you must immediately consider the twelve Imams (a.s) to be the rightful successor of the holy Prophet (s) and pledge allegiance to them, for your heart has now turned towards Ahl al-Bayt (a.s). You can read a lot on this website and perhaps also take a look at www.al-islam.org and go through the books that are uploaded there. If you have any questions, you can raise them on this forum and you will in'shaAllah receive responses to your questions. I can understand the predicament you must be in, but remember that the struggles of this life are only short-lived. You will certainly face a lot of hardships because Allah tries his servants through those troubles in order to elevate him to a better status. Be caring and understanding to your parents and answer them in the most appropriate way. Perhaps they will notice the (positive) change in your manners and be attracted to the madhhab themselves. Keep in mind that it is only Allah who guides people to his way and it is only He who illuminates the heart. Try to learn about the Shi'a madhhab as much as you can and be prepared for any possible questions they may have for you. In'shaAllah with the support of the brothers and sisters from this forum, you will alleviate their doubts and respond to their queries correctly. Don't lose hope, don't despair, hang in there because at the end of the journey, there is ease. Take care and may the month of Rajab bring Allah's blessing upon you and your family.
  7. I've been to Oman and stayed there for quite some time. It is an amazing place to be in, and the people are great there. Can't help but upload a few snaps! : The Nizwa Souq : The Nizwa Fort : The beautiful Grand Sultan Qaboos Masjid : Would love to visit that place again.

    Popular FB pages

    I deliberately posted it in the Arabic sub-forum so that I can know which FB pages has a lot of Arab followers. To make my request more specific, I'm looking at FB pages with Arab following, who are in need of complex medical treatments and surgeries. But then, I thought, I won't get any help as it'll make people put in a lot of efforts to actually dig those pages. But then, it seems that it is hard for people to list some general pages as well. Any help at all, please?!

    Your Own Captured Photos

    This thread brings me joy and I haven't posted here in a while. So I decided to share some of my snaps from the Arba'een trip this year to Iraq. Enjoy! ***** This guy's beard. Like a king. : I love falafel, so this was my go-to snack each time I felt hungry. The brown tamarind chutney was amazing : Every second spent at the shrine of Imam Ali (a.s) was a super experience. People from all over the world congregate and pay respect to the Imam, ask for the fulfillment of their needs and spend their time praying. Any amount of time spent here just wasn't enough. Some photos of the shrine of Imam Ali (a.s) : After praying, I'd take a break and venture out to grab something to eat. I love bakery items and the Iraqi food served to the pilgrims was excellent. Their hospitality is truly unmatched. May Allah bless them immensely : This last picture here is from the journey from Najaf to Karbala on foot. Incredible experience. The walk should be one thing on everybody's bucket list. Truly unforgettable : If you seem to have liked the photos, please pray for the early appearance of Imam az-Zamaan (atfs) and keep me in your dua' too
