  1. #17 The Population of Where You Live

    For 7 years I lived in a city with two million people. I am now back in a small town again.
  2. What path do I chose?

    Salam. If you have one year before you start your Masters degree program, then there is no need to leave your family to go study Islam. Stay with your family and do as much independent study about Islam as you can. Do research on your own by reading and studying. After you achieve your Masters degree, inShaAllah you can take a break and reassess your situation to decide whether you want to take hawzah classes or other educational opportunities or if you need to work to pay off debts for yourself or your family.
  3. Allah's Creation

    Flower farming in Holland.
  4. Allah's Creation

    Bismillah (salam) Holy Qur'an 23:14 "so blessed be Allah, the Best of the creators!"

  5. Imam Ali and Um al baneen

    Salam. Umn al-Baneen AS is well known for her love and loyalty toward the Holy Prophet SA, Fatima Zahra AS, Imam Ali AS, Imam Hassan AS, and Imam Hussein AS. No doubt that Imam Ali AS loved her because she loved Ahlul Bayt AS. http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/37432-umm-al-baneen-sa/
  6. Hatred/jealousy

    Salam. That must have hurt a lot to find out that your relatives went to Iraq and did not take you with them. I'm sorry. Maybe you can use Skype to talk with your grandfather. There is a phone app called FaceTime. At least call and talk to him.
  7. Durood e taj

    Salam. The website duas.org is a Shia website with Shia duas. You can find Dua Taj there, which is similar to what you have posted, but Dua Taj is longer and the Arabic and transliteration (how to pronounce it) is available. https://www.duas.org/Duataj.htm
  8. Recommend Some Good Shia Books For Beginners

    Salam. The others have given you the name of many books that are great. This is one that I would like to recommend. It is not too long and it might be too brief, but as an introduction to Shia Islam, it might be useful, inShaAllah. The Truth As It Is Get PDF https://www.al-islam.org/truth-as-it-is-jafar-al-hadi
  9. @ZahraZubaid Do you see how your OP (opening post) sounded kind of worried and how your later posts were more calm and thoughtful? When you are angry, hurting, feel stressed out or overwhelmed, never take any action that could harm yourself. Tell yourself that you need to relax and then think about things carefully.
  10. The Prolonged Lifespan of Imam Mahdi (aj) Get PDF https://www.al-islam.org/message-thaqalayn/vol-13-no-3-autumn-2012/prolonged-lifespan-imam-mahdi-aj-zainab-musawi
  11. Salam , a clothing issue.

    Thank you, Dear. I am praying for you to find a friend. If you go to the nearest Shia Center where you live I'm sure you can find someone to talk to. Have you been friendly to a classmate?
  12. Rabi al-Awwal 9 - Eid al-Zahra

    Eid al-Zahra (The Day Imam Zaman, may Allah hasten his return, started his Imamate, after mourning the martyrdom of his father the 11th Imam AS on the previous day [Rabi al-Awwal 08]).
  13. Rabi al-Awwal 08 - Martyrdom of Imam Hassan al-Askari (11th Imam) AS.
  14. Salam , a clothing issue.

    If even hijabi sisters are rude with you or standoffish, it must be that your clothing looks too ethnic for them. If that is the case, then they are wrong, because they should know that everyone is allowed to wear whatever makes them feel comfortable. Allah knows you are trying your best. Those people who have hundreds of Facebook friends are not really that happy but only posting things to show how happy they are. If you have only one good friend in your life that is enough. If you have no friend at all, then never fear because Allah is your friend. He created you and sustains you, cares about you and loves you. Every breath we take is from his love and kindness. I pray that you find a friend who will treat you as kind as you want to treat her.
  15. Calling the police would bring a policeman to the door of their home. In today's climate of Islamophobia this would cause a lot of problems for the family. She should talk with her father herself. @ZahraZubaid Be calm and don't say or do anything that would cause someone to abuse you. In less than two years inShaAllah you can leave. Be smart and take care of yourself.
  16. How do i convert to Islam? Who can help me?

    ShiaChat has a pinned topic in Jurisprudence with information on Grand Ayatullahs and their websites: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/71812-grand-ayatullahs/ Another source when doing research to find a marja is this Shia website: http://www.islamic-laws.com/ulamaa.htm
  17. Please help me

    Salam, Sister. Allah SWT created you and He knows what is best for you. If you think about this more, you might realize that what you wanted was not good for you and that is why Allah removed it. Think about all the good things in your life and try to be satisfied with something else. If you want to be specific about that thing that you want and cannot have, maybe our advice to you would be more clear and more helpful. There are a lot of duas in this topic, so look at the thread and read the posts by others. You might find one dua that you like more: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/53845-need-a-very-super-duper-powerful-dua/ Praying for you!
  18. prayer request

    Salam, Saba. Praying for your dear mother during her medical treatments.
  19. Salam , a clothing issue.

    Salam, Sister. If you are getting the rude looks and cold replies it might be because you wear hijab. Read Ayatul Kursi every day before you leave home. [Holy Qur'an 2:255] Allahu la ilaha illa huwa alhayyu alqayyoomu la ta/khuthuhu sinatun wala nawmun lahu mafee alssamawati wama fee al-ardi man tha allathee yashfaAAu AAindahu illa bi-ithnihi yaAAlamu ma bayna aydeehim wama khalfahum wala yuheetoona bishay-in min AAilmihi illabima shaa wasiAAa kursiyyuhu alssamawati waal-arda wala yaooduhu hifthuhuma wahuwa alAAaliyyu alAAatheemu اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ

  22. Thoughts 2017

    Praying she gets well soon, Be haqqe Muhammad wa Aale Muhammad. InShaAllah.
  23. I think she knows that if she reports her father he would be arrested and maybe go to prison. This would be catastrophic for her mother and family.
  24. #16 Temperature Poll

    -3 to +4 Celsius or -3 to +4 Fahrenheit are both cold. No doubt about it.
