  1. Yes but these gases only effect the earth, not our health. Even if they do effect our health in some way, it's not significant enough to seriously harm our bodies.
  2. Rocket fuel does not effect the human unless consumed or smelled, and when the fuel is used it dissolves into the atmosphere, in other words it doesn't cause harm to us. However a cigarette contains over 7000 different chemicals that are harmful. Each cigarette you smoke causes all these chemicals to dissolve in your body, in other words your doing considerable harm to yourself.

  4. Wait ignore my first post, I came to realize I was wrong as I read what Ayatollah `Allamah Shahid Murtadha Mutahhari said: "...What kind of talk is this that the `Ulama (only) must perform the Istikhara! How many problems this misconception has brought up! An `Alim is sitting in his house, busy studying or writing, the telephone rings and the person on the other end asks: `Sir! I am sorry to bother you, I need an Istikhara...' Regardless, I myself perform Istikhara (for others), and I am not opposed to it, but it is better that each person performs an Istikhara for himself. Some people have even said that it is not allowed for a person to perform an Istikhara for someone else and everyone must perform it for himself!" To the OP, I read this by Imam Khamenei: Q1427: Is it right to take istikhārah more than once for the same issue?A: Since istikhārah is sought as a means of removing the state of indecision, a goal that should have been achieved by the first one, there is no point in repeating the same. However, should the subject of istikhārah change, one can do istikhārah afresh.
  5. Don't do istikhara on your own if you don't know how to do it properly. Contact a sheikh or a knowledgable/religious person and let them do it for you.
  6. Is horse racing not an avenue of gambling aswell? All horse racing events are made for gambling. But I do understand now that our marjas have made an exception to horse racing so I won't argue against its permissibility, but that doesn't mean any sport like basketball or soccer can be permissible aswell to bet on yourself. Only the exceptions like horse racing is allowed.
  7. @Zamestaneh The stuff I stated above should be sufficient proof for the permissibility of building mosques over graves, visiting them and doing ziyarat to them. Only ibn Taymiyyah and his followers are the ones that are in complete denial and ignorance on this issue, and that's why you see them in Syria and Iraq trying to destroy our mosques and shrines.
  8. @Zamestaneh The Prophet said: “…وَاللهِ لَتُقْتَلُنَّ بِأرْضِ العِرَاقِ وَتُدْفَنُ بِهَا.” قُلْتُ: “يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ! مَا لِمَنْ زَارَ قُبُورَنَا وَعَمَّرَهَا وَتَعَاهَدَهَا؟” فَقَالَ لِي: “يَا أبَا الْحَسَنِ! إنَّ اللهَ تَعَالَى جَعَلَ قَبْرَكَ وَقَبْرَ وُلْدِكَ بِقَاعاً مِنْ بِقَاعِ الْجَنَّةِ وَعَرَصَةً مِنْ عَرَصَاتِهَا.” {The Prophet (s) said:} “You shall be killed in Iraq and you shall also be buried there!” I (Imam 'Ali ('a)) said: O Messenger of Allah! What shall be the reward of the one will visit our graves, beautify them and maintain them?” He (s) said to me: “Your grave and that of your sons are among the edifices of paradise and among its fields.” It is permissible to build mausoleums over the graves of the righteous and the 'ulama'. It is recorded in the book, Al-Ghadir, that “Malik ibn Anas passed away in 179 AH and his grave is in Medina, in the Baqi' cemetery in particular, and has a small dome and a small building: عَلَيْهِ قُبَّةٌ صَغِيرَةٌ مُخْتَصَرُ البِنَاءِ. Therefore, it is permissible to construct domes and shrine according to the Maliki 'ulama'. In the book, Al-Fiqh 'ala al-Madhahib al-Arba'ah, it is thus stated about the manner of making grave: وَيُنْدَبُ ارْتِفَاعُ التُّرَابِ فَوْقَ الْقَبْرِ بِقَدَرِ شِبْرٍ. It is mustahabb for the grave to be an inch above the ground. It is recorded in history books attributed to the Ahl as-Sunnah: Every year the Prophet (s) would visit the graves of the martyrs {shuhada'} of the Battle of Uhud and recite this prayer {ziyarah}: السَلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَى الدَّارِ. Peace be on you because you were constant, how excellent, is then, the issue of the abode. It is also recorded that Abu Bakr, 'Umar and 'Uthman, like the Prophet (s), also used to perform ziyarah. The daughter of the Prophet of Islam (s), Hadrat Fatimah az-Zahra ('a) would also visit the martyrs of Uhud two days a week. During his visit to the martyrs, especially in the ziyarah to Hamzah and Mus'ab ibn 'Umayr, the Holy Prophet (s) would recite this verse, رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ. Men who fulfill what they have pledged to Allah. In addition to this, it is thus recorded in the book, As-Sahih that Abu Sa'id al-Khudri would extend salutations to the grave of Hamzah… Umm Salamah, one of the honorable wives of the Prophet (s), and individuals such as Abu Hurayrah, Fatimah Khuza'iyyah, and 'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar al-Khattab also used to perform ziyarah to this group of martyrs. It is thus recorded in the valuable book, al-Ghadirunder the section, “Virtues and Merits of Abu Hanifah” {Bab Fada'il wa Manaqib Abu Hanifah}: Whenever he would go to Baghdad, Imam ash-Shafi'i would pay a visit to the grave of Abu Hanifah. He would stand beside his grave, offer salutation to him and seek his intermediation for the fulfillment of his needs. Ahmad ibn Hanbal did the same practice with respect to his master (Imam ash-Shafi'i) to such an extent that his son would get astonished. Ahmad ibn Hanbal explained to his son that there is nothing wrong in seeking the intermediation of Imam ash-Shafi'i for the removal of difficulties because he, like the sun, was beneficial to the people. The Quran also says: So it was that We let them come upon them, that they might know that Allah's promise is true, and that there is no doubt in the Hour. As they were disputing among themselves about their matter, they said, 'Build a building over them. Their Lord knows best.' Those who had the say in their matter said, 'We will set up a place of worship over them'.
  9. @Zamestaneh Show me where the Prophet or the Quran said shrines over graves is forbidden. The Quran also said: ابْنُوا عَلَيْهِمْ بُنْيَانًا “…..Erect an edifice over them…., (Kahf 18:21)” قَالَ الَّذِينَ غَلَبُوا عَلَىٰ أَمْرِهِمْ لَنَتَّخِذَنَّ عَلَيْهِمْ مَسْجِدًا “….Those who prevailed in their affair said: We will certainly raise a mosque over them….. (Kahf 18:21)”
  10. What's istigatha?
  11. So what @repenter is saying is any activity or sport that is necessary for health and protection is permissible to bet on yourself, so does that mean even martial arts, swimming, weight lifting, sprint racing and etc are all permissible aswell to bet on yourself?
  12. @shiaman14 that's what I don't get either, why are some sports halal to bet on yourself but other sports like billiards is haram.
  13. So if only those 3 are an exception, betting on anything else would be considered haram right?
  14. We only do duas to Allah.
