  1. Hadith about Death

    Salam Alaikum, I was wondering if anyone knows of an equivalent hadith about death on certain days of the week in Shia of Ahlulbayt sources? Also is this hadith (and other similar ones) considered strong/ weak in chain of narration etc.? I would be most grateful for an answer / direction... This is the hadith : Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “there is no Muslim who dies on the day of Friday or the night of Friday, but Allaah will protect him from the trial (fitnah) of the grave.” Narrated by Ahmad, 6546; al-Tirmidhi, 1074 Thanks
  2. 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!
  3. Friday Sermon

    What you have learned in today's friday sermon? Would you like to share? I myself attended the friday prayer at a Brelvi Mosque. Where khatib was telling the benefits of speaking the truth even at times of difficulties. And was telling some merits/powers of Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani rehmatullah alaihe. To which I totally disagree with him. And in first Rakah he recited Surah Jumah verses 9-11 and in second Surah Kauthar. “The best of days on which the sun has risen is Friday. One this day Adam was created, and on this day he was descended to earth.” (Saheeh Bukhari) W.salam
  4. The approximate data is given below: Total selection of week on Friday = 21 Mod, development team members = 7 Others = 14 The data of posts based on top 10 contributors of the week is given below: Post of Week = 569 Nos. Posts by Mod / development team member = 169 (3 Contributors) Posts by Others = 400 (7 contributors) And many more will be contributing by their posts. How you can justify the number of weekly selection considering the number of total members in the forum per week? i just need to improve further this area more without any personal interest. Wasalam
  5. Salam, Blessed Friday for you all In ShaAllah! كان علي (ع) إذا أراد أن يوبخ الرّجل يقول له : أنت أعجز من التارك الغسل ليوم الجمعة ، فإنه لا يزال في همّ إلى الجمعة الأخرى العلل 1/270 Hadith above says that Imam Ali used to reproach someone by saying : You are lazier than the one who is intentionally abandoning the Ghusl of the day of Friday. For such a man will live worried to the next Friday. I think it is one of the many mercies upon us that we are getting a reward for this act. At times the mind is very preoccupied no matter how hard we try to clear it up. Praying and reputation of Quran and Du'a becomes difficult to be done with full focus. But here we are being rewarding for a physical act that dose not require plenty of mind work. Just a bath on the day of Friday. But see how huge amount of bounty is sent toward us for just doing it with only the intention? قال النبي (ص) : من اغتسل يوم الجمعة ومسَّ من طيب امرأته إن كان لها ، ولبس من صالح ثيابه ، ثم لم يتخطَّ رقاب الناس ، ولم يلغُ عند الموعظة ، كان كفارة لما بينهما Prophet said : Whoever performed the Ghusl of Friday , put some perfume (from his wife if she has any), wore the best of his clothes then went to mosque and did not skip people's necks to reach to front lines then did not speak laghu during the sermon. This act will cover up any flaw of him during the upcoming week up to next Friday ^rough translation. قال الصادق (ع) : إذا اغتسل أحدكم يوم الجمعة فليقل : " اللهم !.. اجعلني من التوابين ، واجعلني من المتطهرين " Imam Sadiq said : After performing Ghusl of Friday say : O Allah , make me from those who repent and those who purify themselves." قال النبي (ص) لعلي (ع) في وصيته له : يا علي !.. على الناس كل سبعة أيام الغسل ، فاغتسل في كل جمعة ، ولو أنَّك تشتري الماء بقوت يومك وتطويه ، فإنه ليس شيء من التطوُّع أعظم منه . The prophet said to Imam Ali in his will : O Ali, there is one ghusl/bath upon people every 7 days, so perform ghusl every Friday even if you had to buy water with your day money and stay without money after wards, for there is nothing with greater reward from all the recommended acts than the ghusl of Friday. Yep so you all lazy people, go and bath XD
  6. Eid Prayers In London On Friday

    Asalamu alaykum, Eid Mubarak. Could you please let me know which Shia centres will be performing Eid Prayers tomorrow in London (including Hillingdon)? If you also know what time the prayers are, and the postcode, that would be helpful. I know the Hujjat centre are. But I am coming from outside London and their centre is a bit far to get to. Thanks very much.
  7. Slm Wanted to share and ask for dua in your ayat-prayer,next friday.Thank you.I'll mention you,too inshallah. "...the partial eclipse is visible across a large part of the northern hemisphere, including the whole of Europe, Greenland, Newfoundland, northern Africa and western Asia." The partial eclipse will begin in London at 08:25 GMT. Maximum eclipse will be reached at 09:31 GMT when 85 percent of the sun will be blocked out. The eclipse ends at 10:41 GMT." http://www.hngn.com/articles/76266/20150311/eclipse-anticipated-march-20-deepest-1999-uk-ireland-expecting-great.htm Ayat-prayerhttp://www.al-islam.org/islamic-laws-ayatullah-abul-qasim-al-khui/prayer-signs-salat-al-ayat
  8. Salaam, Just came across this question on Ayatollah Sistani's website: Question: I am 19 years old and a convert to Islam of five months. My question is, being a practitioner of Twelver Jaf'ari Islam is it permissible for me to pray behind a Sunni Imam for Salaatul-Jummah and for regular congregational prayers, and is it required to prostrate on Turbah inside a mosque? Answer: Taking part in Friday and congregational prayers of the Ahl-e Sunnat is permissible in areas where Taqiyah (dissimulation) is required. If you are not going to face a problem, you should, as far as possible, prostrate on a stone or anything upon which Sajda (prostration) is permissible. Prostration on carpets in the case of Taqiyah or out of necessity is permissible and there would be no objection in it. But if you are not offering your prayers with them out of Taqiyah it is not necessary to attend their congregational prayers and you can offer your prayers separately. Does that mean there is no sawaab (benefit) in offering congregational prayers behind Sunni Imams? and its preferable to offer Friday prayers individually (regular zuhr prayers in lieu of Friday prayers) if there is no shia mosque nearby ?
  9. AA, Anyone knows which shia mosque near Penn State has regular Friday Prayers. Around this area: https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=39.950074,-75.191317&hl=en&num=1&t=m&z=19&iwloc=A Ws Syed
  10. (bismillah) (salam) Surah al-Sad 38 Whoso recites this surah during Friday night Allah would give him and the near and dear ones in the house so much good in this world and the next as would not be given to any except a Prophet or a high ranking angel; all of them would be allowed to go to paradise; even the servant is eligible for the reward. Whoever recites this surah, would get heavenly reward equal to ten times the weight of the mountain Allah made subservient to Prophet Dawud; and would be kept safe from committing minor and major sins. Surah al-Dukhan 44 If recited on Thursday nights, all sins are forgiven and houses are built for the reciter in Jannah. The reward for reciting each letter of this surah is equal to that of freeing a thousand slaves for seeking the pleasure of Allah (s.w.t.). It is narrated from the Holy Prophet that if this surah is recited at night, then seventy thousand angels pray to Allah (s.w.t.) to forgive the sins of the reciter. Imam Muhammad al-Baqir said that whoever recites surah ad-Dukhan in his faraa'idh (compulsory prayers) will be protected from the torment of the Day of Judgement and will easily be able to give his accounts. His book of deeds will also be given to him in his right hand. If kept in one's possession, this surah acts as a protection from the plots of Shaitan. If kept under one's pillow before sleeping at night, there will be no suffering from nightmares and one will always get good dreams. Keeping this surah in a place of business makes the trade prosper. Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq has said that keeping this surah as a talisman ensures protection from the authorities and makes people fond of the wearer. Drinking water in which this surah has been dissolved is a cure for all ailments related to the stomach. Surah al-Ahqaf 46 Whoever recites this surah everyday or on every Friday, Allah would keep him away from trouble and hardships in this world and from painful punishment on the day of reckoning; and virtues ten times the number of men walking on the earth would be recorded to his credit and all his evil deeds would be erased and his rank would be enhanced tenfold. If this surah is written on paper and worn around the neck as a tawiz by a child or his mother or wet nurse he would have enough milk, would grow strong, free from orthopaedic diseases, and also from accidents and mishaps. Whoever writes this surah on a china plate, washes it with Zam Zam water and drinks it, would become a popular person, people would pay attention to what he says, would have a fairly good retaining memory and would attain success in whatever job he undertakes. Surah al-Kahf 18 Whoso recites on Friday night verse 110 of this surah there would be a light for him covering the distance upto Kabah and Bayt al Muqaddas and it would seek forgiveness for him throughout the night, and after death he would be raised among the group of martyrs. Ref : Imamreza.net May Allah(swt) keep us firm and steadfast in the perfect dean of Islam and the beautiful path of Ahlulbayt(as) (wasalam)
