  1. Salam Alikum - Last night I was listening to a majalis - and during the masaib section, I heard something I did not hear before, so wanted to check. The orator mentioned that while the ahlubayt (as) were on the way to Sham from Karbala - Qhuli (la), Shimr (la), and two more people made a circle and started playing with Imam Hussain (as)'s severed head like people play catch with a normal ball. I was so distressed and the way it was described surprised me. Can anyone please authenticate or negate that this happened? I know these maloons could do anything impossible - but, I never heard or read this before, so some what curious to know if you have heard or read it before. Jazakallah Khair.

    Jumu'ah & ghusl

    Salam Alikum - Gusl-e-Jumuah is one of the mustahab gusl. See below the ruling from Ayat ullah Sistani Saheb: 651. In Islam, several Ghusls are Mustahab. Some of them are listed below:Ghusl-e-Jumuah: Its prescribed time is from Fajr to sunset, but it is better to perform it near Zuhr. If, however, a person does not perform it till noon, he can perform it till dusk without a Niyyat of either performing it on time or as Qadha. And if a person does not perform his Ghusl on Friday it is Mustahab that he should perform the Qadha of Ghusl on Saturday at any time between dawn and dusk. And if a person knows that it will not be possible for him to procure water for his Ghusl on Friday he can perform the Ghusl on Thursday with the Niyyat of Raja', that is, as a desirable act. And it is Mustahab to recite the following supplication while performing Friday Ghusl: 'Ash hadu an la ilaha il lal lahu wahdahu la sharika lah wa ash hadu anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa Rasuluh. Alla humma salli 'ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad waj'alni minat tawwabina waj'alni minal mutatahhirin. (I testify that there is none to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no associate and Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. O Allah! Bless Muhammad and his Progeny. And make me one of those who are repentant and pure).

    Shia

    Salam Alaikum - I also have had experience with people who term themselves Shia but do not either believe in infallibility of aimmah or say some of our beloved Imams (as) did bayah (allegiance) to the rulers of their times. I have had several debates on such issues and with such personalities, and what I have realized that some of these people are really ignorant and try to mend ways, while some of these people are not ignorant but want to destroy the whole system and that is why they call themselves shia but have a different agenda. These are modern time munafiq. They are among us and they want to destroy our iman. I think some of these are paid as well for doing this. So, we need to be cautious in our approach. Wassalaam!
  5. Salaam. I would like to say a word of caution. Simple rule of Quranic analysis is that you don't look at one Ayah alone, rather you gather all the ayahs that concern certain matter and then do the analysis in light of ahadiths. Thanks,

    Dua

    In addition to what brother Hassan has mentioned, I believe a lot in the effectives of Dua Mashlul. It's a powerful dua. When I am in need and I recite it with all vigor, I accomplish my needs by the grace of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì.
  7. Allah (s.w.t.) says: “And keep up prayer in the two parts of the day and in the first hours of the night; surely good deeds take away evil deeds this is a reminder to the mindful.” (Surah Hud (11): Verse 114) In this verse, the timings of prayers are again given clearly as three main times, which are as follows:- First and Second: The parts of the day, which means morning, which is the starting part of the day, and afternoon which is the other part of the day, when timings of Zohr and Asr prayers start. Third: The beginning of the night, which is the time of Maghrib and Isha prayers. It is then very clear that timing of prayers in the Holy Quran, are three main items for five prayers. First: From afternoon unto before sunset: for Zohr prayers followed by Asr prayers. Second: From real sunset when night starts being the time for Maghrib and Isha prayers. Third: Morning Prayers
  8. Salam alaikum. Very interesting! I have a few points to make with my limited ability to talk about space and time. First, angles don't have a free will. They have as limited knowledge as Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì has given them. It's also mentioned in Quran-e-pak somewhere. Angels are made of light and you know light is impacted by gravity and light takes time to travel through a space, e.g light year is the distance covered by light in an year. Now, Let's not ignore that there is higher dimensions involved here which we don't know of. We can only feel 3 dimensions- but, Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì could have created a much higher dimensional space that we don't know of and all heavenly things could be residing in it. Remember what Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì says that he has created curtains, pardas, between our and higher world. We have jinns around us but we can't see them because they are probably in much higher dimensional space, when Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì reduces their dimensions to 3, we can see or feel them. Wassalaam for now.

    Qur'an Verse Of The Day

    وَمَكَرُوا وَمَكَرَ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ And they planned and Allah (also) planned, and Allah is the best of planners. Surah Ale Imran (3), Ayah 54.

    Ashura

    Salam alaikum. Interesting discussion so far. Jazakallah to all for that. In my opinion, which may not matter at all or may take this discussion to a very different tangent, we are mixing culture with religion, and both have a very thin line. Azadari varies from one culture to the other, while maintaining the bottom line, i.e. Mourning of shaheeds of Karbala. So in some culture people beat their chests while in other people flagellate. So, I think it's difficult to draw a line here. I think let people do what they like, because it's a matter of love - supreme love, and everyone has his/her own way of expressing it. But, for sure, if our expression of love to Imam Hussain (as) hurts our image, then it really recalls for introspection and changing the ways. Jazakallh.

    Recitation of prayer

    Jazakallah. You just said it all and well. May Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì accept our ama'l.

    Recitation of prayer

    Salam alaikum. Sorry for jumping in so late. When it come to acceptance of the prayer topic comes, I am always cautious. It will be best to pronounce everything as needed, but it's not always possible as we come from various nations and having different accents. So, it's on the Khaliq (awj) whether to accept it or not and that's why I refrain from passing the judgement that "your salat is void". Jazakallah.

    Istekhara

    Salam alaikum. As far as I know, whatever be the result of your istikhara, you can't go for another round until the condition has changed. For example, if you have seen istikhara for joining a new position and if that negative, you can have it for the second time if terms of the job have changed. I hope this is helpful. Walekum as Salaam.
  14. Salam Alaikum! A shia friend of mine said with confidence that authenticity of Ziyarat Ashura is questionable, as it has la'an in it which is not the characteristic of a masum. He also quoted Ibn Twoos on it. Please help me how would I defend and prove otherwise. Your contributions will be much appreciated. Jazakallah Khair.
  15. Salam alaikum. Completely agree with you brother Hassan. This is the very honest answer so far.
