  4. Why we shouldn't skip prayers!

    I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!
  5. Is dua really effective?

    We often hear about the importance of dua, dua being the weapon of a believer etc. There are recommendations of the best methodology of dua, some of it's conditions, and how to increase our chances of getting it answered etc. Eg. have wudu, praise Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, thank him, be sincere, and for better chances of acceptance supplicate during thahajjud in the middle of the night, before breaking fast, after the obligatory prayers, in Qunoot, in Sujood, in congragation, in the Masjid, on Fridays, before the sunset, when it is raining etc, when alone, etc. But does dua really work? Do we have any empirical evidence for it? Do we have any proof of it? Because if you look at countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and how the people there all make supplications with sincerity day and night. You know, "Oh Allah bless us of the good in this world and the next and save us from the hell fire". "Bring peace and harmony to our country", "Bless me with wealth, knowledge, etc". Yet what do we see? Chaos, bloodshed, poverty, ... Compare that to say the Scandinavians, Australia, Canada, where almost non of the people supplicate there, majority are either atheists or not religious, yet they are living a peaceful, comfortable and blissful life. So does dua really work? Please explain. Thanks
  6. Dua/amal for depression

    Dua /amal for deprission. Please rember me in prayers
  7. I recently started watching Rurouni Kenshin and have been thinking to myself if what I am watching is haram because their are some haram elements such as the music in the background and mild sexual references and so on. I pray five times a day and read Quran and Dua, but I'm not sure if I could better spend my time doing something more productive. I also wanted to ask is what I'm doing a waste of time? The Quran speaks of all the good we should do while we are on this earth is watching something like anime beneficial, negative or neutral. Islamically after you finish your obligations (prayers) listen to some Quran and Dua should you further strive to learn more about Islam or is their leeway to watch tv, anime etc.
  8. Dua of the Day

    Selam alaycom, Inshalla everyone here knows how to do (and does) the obligatory acts of worship. However, there are many recomended acts that you might not know about. Inshalla I'll be posting some recommended daily duas, prayers, amaal and ziyarats here. This first one here is a gift from me, :angel: that some of you might need in other forums here on shiachat. Dua for scorpion bite At the place of scorpion bite salt should be poured and then recite Sura “Al-Kafiroon” (Ch: 109), Sura “Al-Falaq” (Ch: 113) and Sura “Al-Nas” (Ch: 114) one time each. Peace, Um Ali

  10. NEW to Islam, need Help

    As-salaamu 'aleikum, I reverted to Shia Islam 1 year ago and wanted to ask if someone could list me highly recommended Prayers and Duas, their times when to be prayed, and location, etc. For example: I want to know good daily prayers like the prayers on Friday. I don't know anything about these. Or special actions that should be done on special days of the week. You know... just give me everything you know and are sure about ^^ I'm gonna list the things i have learned so far, or I'm learning, or i know that i want to learn. Just so that it is not repeated. I know the benefits and times of recitation for the following prayers: - 5 daily Prayers, Salat al Layl, Ayat al Kursi, Dua Imam e Zaman, Dua al-Ma'rifa-tul-Imam, Dua al-Ghareeq, Dua al-Ahd, Dua al-Nudba, Thank you very much for your help. Please also state good literature for a beginner (hadith, other books) The GOAL for me is to build a SOLID BASIS, a steadfast and consistent level of iman, because i had problems with that (flactuations). I need a good routine of Prayer, Dua, Deeds, Actions etc. Please don't state the obvious like: Reading the holy Book, or saying Takbir ( xxx times a day), etc. That is what I'm trying to achieve anyways. Thank you! May God bless you and give you the same reward for every word i recite or read.
  11. Salam brothers and sisters. we all heard once at least that Ramadan is the best time for duas to get accepted. Is it true ? And if so, is it not selfish ? Because we should do things to get closer to God, and making dua for our own desires (I'am not talking about the ones where we ask God forgiveness and thank Him), is it not considered as selfish ? Thank you very much.
  12. Is there a dua to change personality or psychological problems? I have always been a quiet person since I was a child and I have never really had anything to say. I can't keep a conversation with people including some family members. I never have anything to say or tell. When I have guests, I can never keep a conversation. I have no interests in anything and I am not good at anything either. I have a hard time making friends as well. I feel lonely and depressed because of this and there is nothing I can do to change. ( I am 17 yrs old) Is there duas for these sort of problems?
  13. Salam. First of all I apologize for my bad english. I'm writing this post because I don't know what else to do. Yesterday muslim friends invited me and my family to their house for dinner. I take every precaution I can to avoid eating or drinking something that may contain alcohol. Someone served me food in a plate where there were traces of vinegar (and I knew it), but I don't know if this vinegar has alcohol in it, as many vinegars has today. When this person gave me the plate, I thought I shouldn't eat it because I didn't know if the vinegar has alcohol, but anyways I ended eating the food. I know vinegar is halal, but I've read that some vinegar has traces of alcohol (even extra alcohol added) in it and this types of vinegar are haram. Now I'm feeling very very very guilty, I feel like I shouldn't eat that because I wasn't sure about the alcohol. If I ate any tiny amount of alcohol my prayers and duas won't be accepted for 40 days. I feel very sad because tomorrow begins the month Ramadan, and I've been waiting for laylatul qadr for many weeks mostly because I have a very special request that I wanted to do dua for. The month of Ramadan is the month where prayers and duas are accepted, and now my prayers won't be accepted. I don't know what to do, I was waiting for this month and now I ruined it just few days before it begins. I want to know if I commited any sin, and if I didn't, how can I get rid off this thoughts? I really want to do my personal prayers and duas in this blessed month and I want them to be accepted, but I ruined it. 1) I did not eat anything with vinegar to be sure I don't let any alcohol enter my body, but the plate where my food was served had traces of it. In case the vinegar had extra alcohol in it, did I commit a sin because I did not investigate before eating from the plate? The reason I feel guilty is because it was not fully unintentionally. Before eating I thought it could have alcohol and should not eat from that plate, but I did not care because lately I'm being very obsessed about every food. 2) If one doubts if the food has alcohol and still eats it, the rule of 40 days still applies? I wan't to know if my prayers won't be accepted in Ramadan because of what I did yesterday I'm sorry for the long post and for repeating the same thing over and over, but I feel very sad and disappointed with myself. Please, if someone can help I would appreciate it so so so much. I know my post may be silly, but this all thing about the food is driving me crazy. I try to avoid even chocolates, cakes and any dessert because they have vanilla in it and I don't know if the vanilla they use has alcohol in it. I reached the stage where I avoid even the bread because I think brewer's yeast is haram and I'm not sure if they use baker's yeast or brewer's yeast to make the bread.
  14. Duas for my prayer to be answered

    I have a wish that I want God to answer, I heard reciting Dua Tawassul, Ziyaret Ashura and Sura Yasin for 40 days is good as well as Dua Ellahi Kayfa Adooka 100 times. Is there anything else which I can do? Thanks
  15. Dua

    Salam 3leykom, I don't know if this is the right place to ask my question but I need your help guys. What are the best dua you say when you want to ask forgiveness to God, when you want to Glory Him, when you want to thank Him and when you want to ask Him Something ? Thank you very much.
  16. Salam dear people, we all know sometimes we feel like our dua will not be answered the way we want to and we feel like giving up because we think Allah decided to give something else. Allah asked us to call upon Him, He will respond. Can you please share some of your story where your wish has been granted after a long time, atfer you feel like giving up and that there's no way you get what you pray for ? and how did you do ? Thank you very much.
  17. Guys I randomly fell on an article online of a photographer who was in Syria during the latest attack and it just broke my heart. He was there he saw everything the picture of him crying describes the level of horror the country is going through. I feel bad because I am currently bothered about what my life isn't offering me and not giving me what I want whereas they are people and children living hell on earth. I feel like a very selfish person but at the same time, I don't know how to help. Even if I want to give zakat I want to give a good amount but as a student who lives at their parent's house, I don't really have something to give except prayers. Does someone feel the same ? What is the best way to help people in need when you are just a teenager? I beg Allah to help all the Syrians and all the people in need especially children and women. I beg for Allah to send blessings upon them and to give them a safe land Ameen
  18. Hello, Recently I was making dua to Allah and I asked him to make me a better person towards my family and my friends and I told him to make my friends happy with me and to keep me happy with them. What is actually going on what right now is that instead of developing better relationships with my friends I lost them, some of them are completely ignoring me What do you think that means? I don't want to admit it but it's kind of hurtful, especially when my intentions were good and I didn't harm nobody
  19. Du'a Rajabiyya

  20. Hello, So here is my story I was born and raised in France and I never practiced islam before last ramadan. I started reading the quran because I was home for the summer, class was over and did not have a job. As I had a lot of free time I started praying and I was pushed to pray because eventhough I wasn't practicing before I was raised a believer and I knew about Allah. Since I wasn't in a place I wanted in life I started making duas. One year later I feel like nothing has changed and I'm still (if not more) depressed about my life I'm not sure where I'm going I feel like it's just a mess and what I wanted my prayers to bring me was guidance. So today I feel like all my duas and prayers were useless and it's quite hard for me to keep up praying and reading surats and hadiths everyday because inside im very sad and at the beginning I thought Islam would be the cure for my depression. Today Im still doing all this thing but I don't understand why because I am afraid I have become hopeless I guess I'm praying just to have nothing to lose in the end I don't think I'm bad person I even tried to help people as much as I can I really tried to make everything work for me like adding zakat, paying people food, fasting.. What do you suggest me to do ? What would you do at my place? I feel like I need a miracle
  21. Very Serious Question on Dua

  25. SUPPLICATION

    الدعاء Supplication MUHAMMAD JAWAD MUHAMMAD 1ـ رسول الله‏ (ص): الدعاء مخ العبادة ، ولا يهلك مع الدعاء أحد. 1– The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘Supplication is the essence of worship and no one who supplicates will be destroyed.’[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 93, p. 300, no. 37]
