  1. "And We have revealed to you, [O Muúammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ", (Quran 5:48) It's always good to sometimes step outside the box and see other perspectives. This rabbi gives more insights on the value and nature of marriage than majority of our Islamic scholars. Enjoy the comedy!
  2. Thanks for the info. "The reason why the period of Hajj is extended to some months in this Verse is that some parts of Hajj rituals ('Umrah) can be performed in these 3 months." So does this mean that Umrah can only be performed within those 4 months? And what do you mean by Umrah being a part of the Hajj ritual?
  3. Salam Alikom to all, I hope you are all doing well and I will keep this short. Quran explicitly talks about the months of Pilgrimage (Hajj) to be four months (http://www.masjidtucson.org/submission/practices/hajj/foursacredmonths.html). Does anyone know of the sources as to why the muslims have restricted it to literally 5 days or so? Which causes too much overcrowds and thus stampedes occur? Jazakallah Khair, Ma' Sallam

  5. Sister if that's the case, I'd suggest the best way is not to put your self into the deep end of shia or sunni. Start slow, from the basics, when trying to find the truth or strengthen one's Imaan. Quran, is the most fundamental of those. So read it whenever you feel lost or looking for a direction. By read it I mean read it's translation, if you are not fluent in your Arabic. Quran is the only source that has remained unchanged, sent from God to all of us and the only 100% authentic source agreed and well respected by all muslims. Other than that in a lecture one can see if their talks are logical/rational. If they talk about hadithes or events/stories, see if they are unanimously accepted ahadithes by both shia/sunni and doesn't contradict your rational and the Quran. Don't worry too much about specifics and branches. I believe Imaan is strengthened by having a solid foundational belief in God, Quran, the Prophet and Akhira etc. These foundations are clearly depicted and emphasised throughout the Quran in a simple and understandable manner.
  6. Sister If I was to categorise, I would categorise these scholars based on whether they were born in a western country or in an Islamic country. What I too have noticed is that scholars that have been born or raised in a western country and has had experience in a western educational system which emphasises on logic and rational rather than just belief, understands and thus explains the deen of Islam in a logical and rational manner. When you sit at a Khutbah of a shia scholar born in an Islamic country, most of their talks are based on some ahadithes that our Imams may have said a millennium ago. When you sit at a Khutbah of a sunni scholar their talks are based on ahadithes or stories/events of Sahabs that supposedly took place a millennium ago. But when you sit at a Khutbah of an Islamic scholar born and raised in the west, whether shia (Hassanin rajabali) or sunni (Nouman Ali Khan and others), their talks are more based on Quranic verses and they use logical and rational to analyse, appreciate and understand those verses of the Quran. While the traditional scholars, will use past events/stories which happened a millennium ago to explain and analyse the verses and thus we feel less of an attachment to it and it feels less relevant. Nonethless sister, don't try to see things as black and white. The world is colourful, people are colourful, it is part of the wisdom and beauty of the creation. Learn from everyone, the truth is the truth even if it comes from a Christian or an Athiest. Don't limit yourself!
  7. Welcome back bro :)

      Thanks man :) . I have not been too active on SC these days. Just having a peak every now and then.

  8. Well, as Imam Ali (as) says look at what he says rather than who he is. I have watched some of his and Abodul Ali Bazargan's clips, some of the things they bring up causes us to look at things from different angles. They are some what similar to Dr. Ali Shariati in the sense that they try to bring a reform in the shia community itself.
  9. To those who can understand Farsi. What is your opinion of the things this guy says?
  10. Do you guys really believe in such things?
  11. Want to listen to some hypnotising Urdu noha that will take you away from this world? Well here is two 1) This one is in Mach Balochistan which is in Sunni Majority Area. 2) Watch this one from 17:30 It's urdu mixed with Farsi and this one took place in Sydney.
  12. Thanks for your well wish brother Irfani313. God willing I am planning to send my parents to hajj first and then go myself. So inshallah your prediction is right in regards to at least my father, may Allah (SWT) bless him.
  13. Walikom Salam brother Abu Hadi, The way you described your experience was clear that it was sincere and purely form your heart. Although I'm writing this at uni sitting next to others, my eyes were tearful reading your post. You are blessed to be there. Please do pray for us, towards Allah (SWT) to guide us and enlighten us through his mercy. And pray that one day we too experience the serenity, the certainty and awareness that you are experiencing there. And most of all pray for us to be the best servants that we can be towards him, and to fulfil the purpose for which he created us for. Thanks Ma'Sallam brother,
  14. Yes it is hard to find the one that is your match. I am not denying that. But what I am saying is that one should do their job and leave the rest to Allah (SWT). You see, giving up and despairing, is in fact despairing in Allah's mercy. We should also do some compromising. If you don't find the perfect match, look for a lesser one. Make sure u don't negotiate deen and akhlaq, but be do some compromising for the rest of characteristics. And even for deen an akhlaq, lower your standards abit, cause you'll never find another Fatima Zahra (as) in this world. Just make sure their deen and akhlaq is at least above the base level. Thats it. And in the end, again, with dua, and making the right intentions, and doing the work, I am 100% Allah (as) will show his mercy and will give something which will make one satisfied. Not being married for life, shouldn't be an option. In Islam Allah has made things easy. Worst case scenario, if you don't find a shia girl, go look for good sunni ones. And if u can't even find that, go look for people of the book. Allah (SWT) has allowed these and made these options open for us.
  15. If you think God's mercy is you opening your mouth and he chucking food in it, then you've understood it completely wrong. God says in the Quran that he will not change the condition of a nation until they change it themselves. You have to strive for it first then you'll see his mercy. Unless you go actively looking, and also accepting that in the real world, you will never find perfect girls. Sitting at home and waiting for a girl to knock on your door for marriage, will not happen.
