  1. Is it wrong if i pray for my death? I am tired of my life and I don't want to live anymore.
  2. What can religious people do that atheists can't, like whats the point of it
  3. Assalamu alaikum I dreamed that a lady who was dressed in White took me to a man. Both the lady and the man were looking kinda sad. Then the man looked at me and said that i am from ahlul shuhadaa. That is it. I do want to point out that my uncle and his wife and their son Haidar (my cousin) Were in their car next to a terrorist attack (done by isis) and then my uncle and his wife died but Haidar survived. You have probably heard about the story of Haidar and everything that happend to him when he lost his parents. But Does anyone know what my dream means?

  5. Recently we have had a family member pass on. I have started to notice that flies will appear and linger around me for some reason. Well it is always only one fly, and prior to my family member passing on this would not happen, however since it has become very noticeable - and in different environments on different days (ex. at work, at the gym). For the jokers out there, I would note that I shower and change my clothes regularly at least once a day. This may just be coincidence but does anyone know if there would be any significance to this kind of stuff happening? If so, does anyone know of any references in ahadith or literature? I've been hearing things that lead me to believe there is some significance but I don't want to buy into rumours without having a basis for looking into them further. I thank you in advance for your time Was salaam
  6. This is an anonymous topic. The member who wants to see this discussion will not be replying here in the topic. Please make no questions toward the member. If you don't understand the topic, please do not reply. Thanks. Assalamu Alaykum. How do people cope with the loss of a family relative? How can they handle it, and what experiences did they have? Are they still affected after a long time? In Islam, is weeping over memories for the loss of someone allowed? Etc.
  7. So there is a question that has come to my mind. A womans husband recently died, about 2 months before his death he was a really good muslim. Before those 2 months he was not. Another case if where a girl died at a young age and she was an average muslim, but about 6 months later she died, and during those months she was so religious and barely did any sin. A young man in England was a bad boy. He was always at nightclubs. He would party and dance and drink. Then THREE WEEKS (yes three weeks) he became the humble and caring person and always offered salat on time. After that he died. Obviously, nobody know when they are going to die. So my question is, If you start being super religious all of a sudden does that mean you are going to die soon?
  8. Plato says the dead have seen the end of war, The silent ones are numerous like the stars For every time I sleep, a soul does not return For every time I awake, a family shall then mourn I wonder then, if do I and others give to our returns, thought Or do we, astaghfirillah, make it an afterthought?
  9. Asalam-alaikum brothers and sisters, My grandmother recently passed away and it has been quite hard on me and my family. However, I have seen her in my dreams multiple times. Does seeing her signify anything? Or the settings I see her in? Or even the colors she's wearing (white and green)? Please help me get some closure. Jazak'Allah khair Thank you -Abid
  10. Assalaamulayekum, For Poisoning of Imam Hassan(as) his wife is responsible under the Influence of Muawiyah. And for Imam Hussain (as), Yazid (la) is responsible for his Killing. If our sunni brother say Shia are only responsible, let them remind that our prophet has prophesied that his nation will slay his son (ie Imam Hussain(as)). It would simply mean that Shia are the only part of his Ummah and sunni doesn't come under his nation. If they include themselves also, it means then shia and sunni shares equal responsibility in killing of Imam Hussain(as), as prophet said his nation would kill him. Basically they are trapped. Nevertheless both person are condemned by our Aimmah (as) in our authentic hadeeth : : ابن محبوب، عن عبد الله بن سنان قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول ثلاث هن فخر المؤمن وزينه في الدنيا والآخرة: الصلاة في آخر الليل ويأسه مما في أيدي الناس وولايته الامام من آل محمد (صلى الله عليه وآله) قال: وثلاثة هم شرار الخلق ابتلى بهم خيار الخلق: أبو سفيان أحدهم قاتل رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) وعاداه ومعاوية قاتل عليا (عليه السلام) وعاداه ويزيد بن معاوية لعنه الله قاتل الحسين بن علي (عليهما السلام) وعاداه حتى قتله Ibn Mahboob from Abdullah bin Sanan who said that I heard Imam Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام) saying: There are there things of pride for momin, and (they are) beautification for him in this world and the world here after, Salat in last part of night; Disappointment which he gets at the hands of people; Wilayat of Imam from Aal-e-Mohammad. He said: and there are three amongst the worst of creation who hurt the best of creation, Abu Sufian, who fought Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله) and was his enemy; Muawiyah who fought Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and was his enemy; Yazid curse of Allah be on him, who fought Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) and was his enemy till he killed him.

  11. I remember when I used to post here there was so much spirit in the forum. It was a pleasure to come online and engage in dialogue and discussion with others. There were always activities going on central to the Islamic months.. For instance, in Ramadan there would be videos of selected speakers uploaded and daily contests.. It just seems so stale and dry, as if a tornado ran through it and sucked the life out.. Perhaps its the layout. I don't prefer this Facebook integrated format. It's sad to see this once powerful site go blank. :(
  12. Salam all brothers and sisters, Peace be upon us. I would like to share the story about me and my dad here, mostly about my dad. My father, my role model, my dad, the best person I know on earth who always taught me about life in dunya, real life after dunya, the truth, the right path, Islam, has gone before me to the next level of life. He passed away on October 27th 2015. I am very sad that I cannot talk to him again or see through his eyes again. I regret many things that I didn't do for/with him when he was alive. I didn't live with him or my family. I live alone close to my office, while my parents live about 3 hours by car. I didn't come home often, I visit them only like 3 times a year (this what I regret). Last time I went home for Eid (on July), and since then I haven't seen him again until the day he's gone. I wasn't there at his last minute. I regret that a lot because I am his child who has the most emotional bond with him. When I came home to visit him, we spent time together just the two of us to visit places, random places. My dad is a very simple man and happy man. Now we cannot do that again :( My mom told me that he was okay the day before he passed away. He and my mom went out to get some food and made a visit to a relative. Then they talked about my niece before they slept. Then he was up to perform midnight prayer at 2 am. By 2.30 he has not finished yet but he stopped. My mom asked what's wrong, he said he didn't want her to know but he is having unbearable headache he has never had before. Then my mom asked him to pray to Allah and she called a relative (in case something happened because they live only the two of them). at 3 am he didn't say it's hurting anymore. He looked like sleeping. Then our relative moved him towards kiblat, and they asked my dad to follow them calling Allah's name, and he did try to keep moving his lips. He opened his eyes, looked up, then he took deep breaths, twice, then 3.30 am he has gone. He was a special person to many people. He reverted muslim at young age, and he followed ahlulbayt around the age of 40 and he let people know shia and follow ahlulbayt. He left us a very valuable heritage; his journal about life, qur'an ayaat that he has highlighted, all his preaching and messages. I will write about his search of the truth and his journal later on. I am crying while I am writing this. Only them whose parents have passed away would understand exactly how I am feeling. Please brothers and sisters, send me prayers that Allah will give me strength (and my family too) to move on without my father, and I hope he forgives all my mistakes that I didn't have chance to make up. Salam and have a nice day.
  13. Salam Alaykoom. - Death has been my biggest fear in life, i'm scared of loosing a loved one someday like my parents, & i'm afraid of dying myself, but i always wish death upon myself first, before my parents. Thinking about death or hearing someone that have passed away, gives my life no meaning, i just keep thinking like what's the point of this, or the point of doing all those Dunya things ( Life things ) Dunya entertainments, when my time of death could be here at any time, i get thoughts in my head, that i should just sit & cry my whole life & just worship Allah nonstop until the time of my death, so i don't do any life entertainment things, because i find them useless, but yet, i cant stop my self from not having fun, like laughing, taking pictures, going out & having fun & that all will lead you to thinking like you're living here for ever. How can i help myself in this situation, either ways isn't good, if i chose to not do anything & just worship, or i don't know what's the proper word to use, but like cry, & pray, & ask for forgiveness from Allah non stop is not something someone can do their WHOLE life, or still chose to love life & do all those fun entertaining things, which will keep me away from Allah ( i feel like ), so i'm just stuck here, needing help. Or what if i die & end up in Hell fire, Jahanam. Because i'm not yet that one perfect Muslimah Allah loves, shaaytan, always makes me feel worthless, & makes me feel like i'm a bad Muslimah. Any Advice would be appreciated, i'm struggling so much.
  14. Salam, I heard that at a time of severe illness of a sahabi (s.a.), Imam Ali (s.a.) visited him. He (Imam s.a) told him that he (Imam s.a.) will be there, three times, for every believer, 1. at time of death, 2. in grave and 3. in barzakh, so no need to worry about it, or afraid of it. (Please note that it doesn't mean that not to worry about their deeds, just mean that not to worry/afraid of change of environment and also to have biggest wish come true of meeting with Ameer ul Momineen s.a., and best to have him (s.a) as companion.) Can anyone please tell me the source of above story and its authentication, I will be grateful to you. Thank you.
  15. Sallam, I was doing research and literally hundreds of answer. How did the Holy Prophet of Islam die? If he was poisoned, who did it, and is there sources or traditions which state this. (Shia traditions of course) If a natural death, what are the sources for that as well. May Allah bless you all for taking the time to educate the ones whom have question like myself. JAK.

  17. That you're going to die very soon? (with these points) - you're not more than the age of 25 - you've family responsibilities although you're not married - you do religious stuff but god has not pardoned you and death is the punishment soon coming towards you Now What to do?
  18. This is an interesting piece written about death. If you found it beneficial then please share it so that others may benefit from it too. Thank you http://ohtranquilsoul.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/death.html
  19. What a lecture. The whole lecture makes you shiver... May Allah increase all of our lives inshAllah and if we have to die, may we die in goodness and in piety. Watch his other lectures here: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235026068-sayed-mahdi-modaressi-muharram-lectures-2014/
  20. A reminder of death... This documentary wakes you up. In a tragic event of an accidentally death of a loved one, a mother acts in goodness to remember the loss, by doing a gracious deed. Please pray al fatiha for all those who are dead. (wasalam)
  21. As salam alaikum, For some background: My mother is Hindu but more spiritual,doesnt believe in rituals etc., dad neutral about religions and a lot more spiritual, and brother is a downright atheist - I'm Muslim lol..and all of us live together so some of our discussions can be..well..interesting and disturbing.. Based on these discussions, I have a question: What is the purpose of creation and afterlife, as per Islam? I understand the purpose of our temporary earthly life is as a test to ensure jannah in the hereafter, through the worship of our creator....but then what? We enter jannah, live there...and then? Whats the point really? My dad asked me this...and I dodged the question coz I wasn't very sure on how to handle it....his view is that we don't know what happens after death, n there is no way to experience it, so how can you just believe something a book says? Mum believes in re-incarnation and the idea that the soul needs to be freed...but after its freed after several thousands of lifetimes, we don't know what will happen... My brother says: well we have no idea what happens once we die - so live this life fullest...following religion or rituals will not allow you to maximize your potential in terms of career and the rest coz it takes up too much time...in terms of creator and universe, he says "there's no way I would think that there is a creator who created this universe...its all physics and quantum mechanics" I ask him who created gravity, how did all of that exist? He says we are not qualified enough in the field of physics to know that...there may be 10 to 15 people in the world who can tell you what existed before the Big Bang and how it was created....but we are not at that level of education, but surely you cannot believe that a God created it...that would just make life so boring - imagine not being able to use your own critical analysis and science backed evidence of the existence of physics laws...and just coming to a conclusion of "oh one creator created all of this"...thats just plain silly and provides no intellectual stimulation in his opinion... They all see religion as being something just for people who haven't got a career or are not educated, to be happy and content with whatever little they have..in the false hope that there will be something better after death, so its ok if there's no money etc now...therefore they will not strive for the most, and will be more focused on religious things... All of them truly believe that religions are all man made to control and manipulate crowds who cannot think for themselves...but for critical thinkers like them (especially my super highly educated brother), it is a joke and very sad to think that you would need to live within certain limits set by someone (something) else....unless its the law of the state, noone else should have any authority over your being except yourself....he doesn't agree with a creator or soul or any of that...and immorality and morality to him is a social construct - the only things which all humans can agree are immoral are those that hurt others: murder, stealing, rape, and sometimes cheating but not always.....he can't understand why marriage is such a huge deal and premarital sex or LGBT is a problem...or the concept of chastity...according to him its all in the heads of people and society has formed it that way - in nature however, if we look at animals, there are many who are homosexual, and there is no such thing of premarital issues, or even issues with one night stands...so why do humans have to make such a big deal and complicate life so much? So based on the above viewpoints, there are many times I don't know how to answer them because I just can't deal with their perspectives...its inconceivable for me to ever think of the idea of not believing in a creator...I have pursued the quest for God since I was a kid...so I really need help answering some of these questions.. My belief is that life is temporary and it is there as a test for the hereafter....but what happens if we go to heaven, or hell for that matter...what is the purpose of getting gardens in which rivers flow? What happens after that? Yes our souls can get close to God, but then what? And ok God will punish those in hell, keep punishing them continuously, but then what? What's the point there? Why would a God do that anyway? What does He get by putting us in heaven or hell? These are the kind of questions I'm afraid to answer, but I really do need something to understand this..and I'm becoming curious of this as well..I'm sure there is a reason I don't know it yet, and I may even believe if Allah has said it is not for us to know, but that won't work with my family...so any help would be greatly appreciated in this matter... I know there are several different points - opinions on all would be great...but the most crucial is the purpose of creation, hereafter and the rest... JazakAllah...
  22. Hi, hope all is well. I am a first time poster in this forum would like to thank everyone for this opportunity. Although this may seem a random topic to discuss on my first post, the recent news regarding the 'likely' hanging of the Sudanese ex Muslim convert has inevitably and unavoidably given rise to this jurisprudential issue. My question is in relation to apostasy (conversion from Islam to a different belief system) in Islam and the associated punishment. I would like to gain a more comprehensive and in depth understanding about this particular ruling and the reasoning behind it. I believe in religious freedom and feel that this ruling defies the essence of human rights and does great damage to those whom endeavor to seek the truth. I do however acknowledge that there is wide a variation of viewpoints within and between the Islamic sects. Nonetheless, even with the most moderate ruling (imprisonment) I have been struggling to fit this ruling within the realms of a logical and rationale framework. Kindest regards,
  23. Shaykh Hamid Waqar delves into the jurisprudential discussion regarding death and whether brain death constitutes death. He points out differences amongst the maraja on this issue. Very interesting read: Brain Death; Dead or not Dead - that is the question
  24. BEIRUT - Government forces backed by Hezbollah fighters took full control of the Syrian town of Yabroud on Sunday after driving out rebel fighters, state media said, helping President Bashar Assad to secure the land route linking the capital Damascus to the former commercial hub of Aleppo and the Mediterranean coast. The fall of Yabroud, the last rebel bastion near the Lebanese border, would also choke off a vital insurgent supply line from Lebanon and consolidate government control over a swathe of territory from Damascus to the central city of Homs.

  25. Salam everyone, I'm not sure how to pose the question but I guess what I'm wondering is if for example: Somebody I know killed a family member and I'm 100% certain that such person killed her/him... am I allowed to "make justice" with my own hands? e.g: killing them too? is it a sin in fiqh? Does Allah gives us the opportunity to make justice with our own hands? or are we supposed to just let it go because killing the person that killed ur mom, dad, sibling, child, etc would be haram? I mean I know we are able to battle and that self-defense killing is not a sin but...if we have the chance to make justice for something personal such as the example I gave, is it a sin?
