اسلام عليكم I've been living in an area where I don't have to think about where to get my halal meat from.. I moved to Florida recently and I've been a vegetarian because I don't know a trusted butcher shop. I live in the Fort Lauderdale area and I need a trusted halal butcher shop. I don't care if I have to drive for hours. Thank you all.
Salam, I am a student and I don't have a car. I was searching for a shia community centers around Melbourne, Florida ? I know the nearest one is in Orlando and it's 90 miles away. Since I don't have a car so I cannot go there. Can anyone help me to get in touch with Shia communities/familes near Melbourne Florida?
Hello and As-Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu Everyone. My name is Rick and I am a Convert to Islam (about 4 years now), living in Miami, Florida, and will plan on attending the local Shia Islamic Center for my first Ashura this year. I have converted to Islam along with my wife, father, and friends and under the Kalimah/Shahada of "ā ʾilāha ʾillā l-Lāh, Muḥammadur rasūlu l-Lāh" the entire Quran, and influence of some of the hadiths that are reported to be said by Muhammad (SAW) and his Family/Companions (PBUT). The closest masjid to our home are all Sunni Masjids and the majority of friends I have are Sunnis or a small group of "Quran Aloners/Reformists"... but you can say I have grown up in a sunni majority enviornment, though I do not consider myself Sunni, Salafi, Wahabi, Quranist, etc. Right now my limited knowledge has only allowed me to be simply "Muslim", however I hope to inshallah increase my knowldge to become a true Mu'min one day. This last Ramadan I really wanted to expand my very limited knowledge of Islam and wanted to develope more friendships with Muslims. I was reading about Iman Khomeini (ra) "We muslims are busy bickering over whether to fold or unfold our arms during prayer, while the enemy is devising ways of cutting them off" and thought this was a very interesting quote. So, Durring Ramandan I attended a couple Jumma's and Lectures at the local Shia mosque for the first time. WOW!! All of the brothers there that I met were very very friendly and helpful. They had all introduced themesleves to me and had told me that I could always ask them anything. As I was doing Wudu (the best I could) one of the brothers had seen it was challeneging for me and had taught me the proper way to do Wudu. This was something I had never encountered and was very apperciative. I prayed on the Turba, shook hands and ate curry soup with everyone, and made Dua for some of the ill brothers/sisters. Now, I plan on comming back to the mosque to attend the Shab-e-Ashur, and also Ashua day. This is something I have never experienced before because in the sunni Masjids I have attened so far, Ashura is something that is not given much attention to. At the Shia Mosque I hear there will be a lecture, a speech, a prayer, and also a Blood Donation Bus for those who wish to dontate blood to for a good cause. I dont know much of what to expect but I have heard that it is best to wear black so my wife and I will do so. If there are any brothers/sisters out there (Converts/Born Muslims) Do you remember your first Ashura Day and what was your expereince like. Describe how you felt and why it is important to you. Inshallah when I return I hope to describe my first. Thank you, As-Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.
