  1. My sister's friend is conducting a survey, she's looking at perceptions of minority groups, Muslims' attitudes, beliefs, and identities. The survey takes 12-15 minutes long. https://uqpsych.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a4etrD7Pk5sZaQt I also really need help spreading the word, so if you could share this with your Muslim friends, families, and networks (those that live in America!), I would really appreciate it! Hard to recruit populations such as Muslim-Americans are accessed through word of mouth and so spreading the word to your networks would immensely helps me in collecting the data I need and to better represent the Muslim-American narrative in academic literature!
  2. I think there is a hadith about someone not being able to wake up for salatul layl and if im not mistaken the imam said it was due to the sins he committed during the day. Easier said than done, but try to focus on working on those sins. No one is perfect, but strive towards that perfection. Also reading the last verse from Surah Kahf (the cave) before you sleep will help you wake up for fajr inshallah
  3. If I'm not mistaken the moon sighting has to be from the same horizon for it to be applicable to North America. Someone seeing the moon in Chile or Brazil is not comformation. Please wait for the representatives of the maraja to make an announcement. Aimislam has no authority over this matter.
  4. The thing is that 90% of the time I think its my body being randomly aroused. Sometimes you are walking and it happens, when you aren't even thinking about anything haram. The 10% of the time is just her saying saying something sweet, but nothing sexual or even grey area. So I am not sure what to do in this case, I was thinking about just asking if I could do muta to talk to her but I don't know how her father would react since it is very early.
  5. Salaam I am currently talking to someone for the purpose of marriage, but every once in a while I find myself aroused. I am attracted to her, and sometimes I get aroused when just talking to her on the phone. It's not that I am thinking sexual thoughts, but arousal still comes for some reason. How would I avoid this since arousal is a sin. Also, I don't think I can marry her since it's only been 1-2 months since we have been talking.
  6. You need to talk to them about subjects that they are interested. Yes rules about prayer, fasting, and najasat are important. But how are you going to teach those things to a kid who has a girlfriend? Or who is inclined to drink alcohol or do drugs? Talk to them about school issues, not just about fiqh and history. The issue is that teachers don't engage properly and the kids just sit there. Put them in groups to have discussions and speak about why Islam is the only religion that makes sense (but do this by being relevant). There is a great hadith about not raising children how we were raised, because each generation is different. You can't teach kids how we were taught, its a completely different world.
  7. You should not tell your dreams when you see the prophets or imams because it can cause you to have arrogance, you should only discuss these with people that can interpret dreams.
  8. My Wife Is Sunni

    Tell her that one of the main shia ayatollah's (ayatollah khamenei) made a fatwa against cursing the sahaba and wives of the Prophet (pbuh). Also tell her that these sunni satellite channels say crazy things and that they are not representations of sunni Islam. ISIS and Al Qaeda are not part of Sunni Islam either, but you still have people who claim to be Sunni to do these terrible deeds. Similarly, one shia or a small group of shia do not represent what the majority of shias and the majority of the strongest shias scholars believe in.
  9. How To Arrange A Mutah Marriage

    I honesty think it will be difficult for you to find a shia girl who is willing to do mutah with you. Are you trying to do mutah in order to avoid sin or to learn about shia Islam? If it is the latter, I think you can learn about shia Islam without mutah. If you are doing it to avoid sin then go to al-islam.org and search marriage or marriage laws and there should be some sources on the proper rulings for mutah. Certain things to know... If girl is a virgin you must have her father's permission Dowry Contract Must be with a muslim or a girl who is considered as the people of the book (Christians or Jews)
  10. You are right we shouldn't call them Zionists. We can just look at the facts. -Their family starts fitna with other masjids around their area as if it is a competition to practice Islam. -They let army recruiters into their mosques -One of them told people to vote for Bush (for his SECOND TERM lol) -Their camps are not segregated very well, basically a hook up camp. -One of them was kicked out of a mosque for doing mutah with younger girls in his own community. smh There is a lot more that I have heard, but the ones I posted were the ones that I have confirmed.
  11. This is wrong. For the guy, parental permission is not needed, but for the girl it is. If she has had intercourse before then it is only precautionary, and not wajib. If she is a virgin, according to Sistani you must get permission from her father first. That being said, most parents don't want their children to do mutah for a few reasons. 1. Pregnancy - This is pretty obvious, if you do muta and you don't have the finances for a child or the maturity to raise one this is a problem. 2. diseases - This is obvious. 3. Shame - It is looked down upon our society if a man does muta. How to avoid all this? You don't need to have sex if you do muta.
  12. Why would you even post that...
  13. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/05/11/302870/did-cia-kill-malcolm-xs-grandson/ from his blog: http://malcolmshabazz.blogspot.com/2013/03/statement-by-malcolm-shabazz-concerning.html The formula for a public assassination is: the character assassination before the physical assassination; so one has to be made killable before the eyes of the public in order for their eventual murder to then deemed justifiable. And when the time arrives for these hits to be carried out you’re not going to see a C.I.A. agent with a suit & tie, and a badge that says "C.I.A." walk up to someone, and pull the trigger. What they will do is to out-source to local police departments in the region of their target, and to employ those that look like the target of interest to infiltrate the workings in order to set up the environment for the eventual assassination (character, physical/incarceration, exile) to take place. inalillah wa ina ilayhi rajioon. He knew what was coming to him just like his grandfather (may Allah bless both of their souls)
  14. There is a sister who is very interested in Islam, but she does not know how women should act . She knows about hijab, and recently started learning about Islam so she is still learning the basics. I guess she is concerned with the woman's role in society in general. -What are her rights as a woman? as a wife? - What are her responsibilities as a woman, wife, mother, etc? - How should she act in public/private. Any good links or any advice would be great. -------------------------------------------------------------- I posted this in general discussion, but I thought it would be more appropiate if I had answers from sisters. Also, if anyone could give me advice on how to help this sister learn more about Islam please let me know. *Sayyeda* likes this Quote MultiQuote Edit
