  1. Iran's Leader issues 2017 Hajj pilgrimage message http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2017/08/31/533516/leader-hajj-khamenei-message
  2. salam dear brothers and sisters I am a mother of a Sayyed under 1 year. This is also so sudden dor me but I am very lucky to be called to do hajj this year. I will take off in this week. The confirmation is about two weeks before going/take off. (quite sudden, isnt it) I pumped and expressed my breastmilk everyday but I am sure it won't be enough for my 40 day trip for hajj. I looked for breastfeeding mom to give my baby milk indirectly from bottle so that they won't be considered mahram in the future. I got 2 moms. One of them is a shia, I thought that she is very good person. The other is a sunni. But later I knew that my shia friend's husband is a son of zina. (the father of my friend's baby is a son of zina) My question: will her breastmilk affected by her husband? Or can a sunni mother give breastmilk to my baby? I am now in a deep doubt about this. Again, my baby is a Sayyed. I want to give the better choice of milk from a good background. I also heard that for temporary replacement of breastmilk, goat milk is a good choice. which one will be a better choice? Thank you for your help.
  3. Salam, if one has performed umrah, and then in Mekkah he wishes to perform umrah again, can he put on the ihram in the hotel room or does he have to leave the city once again? also how is umrah performed.
  4. Asalam Aleikom, Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I couldn't find a better one. Someone I know passed away and it was his intention to do hajj but could not afford it. Does anybody know of a group or people who could do this hajj on behalf of the deceased? I once was surfing the web and found a foundation that has a section that offered these services where you pay a small sum to needy people who could in turn do these services. I have since forgotten the website address. If anyone knows any entity that does these services for people please let me know. I would prefer a country with a less developed economy since I plan on helping the deceased's family by paying for it but I have limited funds and obviously it would be cheaper to hire someone in, say, Iraq than U.K. A shia would have to do the Hajj. Thanks. wa salam. TLH

  6. Hajj

    Salam Alikom to all. We are aware that the government of Saudi Arabia has launched a war on the people of Yemen while also supporting and financing terrorist activities in some parts of the middle east. In such case, is it permissible that we go to Hajj, when we know that some of the money that we spend for the Hajj Pilgrimage, may be used by the Saudi government to finance it's wars and other terrorist activities? If we do go, doesn't this mean that indirectly we are financing the killing of innocent people in Yemen, Syria etc? Ma' Sallam.
  7. Across the globe, millions of Muslims prepare to embark on the sacred pilgrimage of Hajj. Hajj is a fundamental pillar of Islam, hence holding immense significance in the lives of all Muslim believers. Muslims who are physically fit and financially stable are required to perform Hajj at least once in their lifetime. This holy journey for Muslims requires planning from before and the utmost preparation. Let’s take a look at the following tips and advice that can help turn your Hajj experience into a memorable and rewarding journey. 1.Ask Allah Before you start planning for Hajj, say Bismillah (In the name of Allah) and supplicate to Allah. This will allow you to ask Allah for the time, strength and ability to gather resources for the upcoming Hajj pilgrimage this year. It is only HE that can make anything possible in this universe. 2.Start inquiring about any legal documentation In order to perform Hajj, a number of legal documents are required. This includes a Visa to travel to Saudi Arabia, valid passport, and any paperwork regarding residency in your country. Legal documentation requires time so it’s best to begin planning early. This can all be done by contacting the Saudi Embassy in your locality or simply by discussing the matter with any travel agent dealing in privagte hajj packages. 3.Read about how to perform Hajj It’s essential to know about Hajj before embarking on this spiritual journey. Various guidebooks, pamphlets, online materials are available for Muslims to read and gain thorough knowledge on how to perform Hajj. This includes knowing about the different rituals, how and when they are performed, as well as things to avoid and things that are recommended for Hajj. Other than this, a handbook of various Duaas (supplications) that are to be read during Hajj should be kept safely to read when required. 4.Keep physically fit Hajj is a physically demanding journey. Believers are required to walk long distances in heated conditions, as well as run up and down Safaa to Marwa. These are just few examples of the rituals required for Hajj. All Muslims should prepare for Hajj by starting to eat healthy and walk for a minimum of 30 mins each day. A medical checkup should also be performed. 5.Stay in touch with those who have performed Hajj It’s always great to stay in contact and converse with family and friends who have been on Hajj. Sharing their experiences with you can give you an overview of the journey; rituals performed and added tips for a successful Hajj pilgrimage. 6.Make an important checklist for things to carry The following items are great to have with you at all times: •Money in your own currency as well as Saudi Riyals •Mobile phone •Extra pair of rubber slippers •Gloves •Small water bottle •Scissors and nail clipper •Sleeping bag/mat •Address and contact number of the hotel/ Kafila you are residing in. Emergency contact names and numbers should also be with you at all times. •Your identification card/ information •Appropriate clothing for men(Ehram) and women •Small cloth bag for collecting stones for the ritual of Hajj Hajj is a beautiful passage that requires careful thought and planning from before. Muslim believers should gain as much knowledge and information about Hajj so they can make the best out of this divine journey.
  8. Aslaamu-alaikum to all the readers. I have a question that I was asked by a friend recently but got stuck for an answer. His question started with, in the Shia Fiqh, is The act of Hajj (pilgrimage) obligatory (Wajib) on females? To which I replied that Hajj is wajib on every Muslim, from my common sense. HOWEVER, he further asked me to prove if any females in prophets household (more so referring to Lady Khatijah sa, Lady Fatima sa, Lady Zainab sa) performed hajj and asked for prove. I have tried to research but couldn't find any obvious answers or hadees in regards. Has any one got more information to enlighten me about this? Many thanks, Jazakallah
  9. Salam all, I wanted to know what are the most reputed Hajj organizers to go this year? And have they started their packages (I noted that most Sunni places have started offering it). I am having a bit of an issue finding more information on this, if someone can help - atleast to get an idea of the prices, arrangements, dates, etc. I haven't moved to Canada yet but planning to very soon inshaAllah.. so I do not have any personal contacts there as yet... though want to try to do Hajj if possible asap as this is my only option. JazakAllah for any help.
  10. Salam all, I had posted on the Community forum but I guess it seems to be the wrong place to post since there are no responses. Can anyone please advise urgently on Hajj groups from Canada?Or anyone I can call who organizes this? I haven't been able to find any Shia kafilas going from Canada - am currently outside the country but need to organize this at the earliest possible. I have noted that all the Sunni travel agents etc, have posted their packages, but no idea of Shia packages as yet? JazakAllah
  11. I am looking for different travel packages/groups for Hajj pilgrimage iA. Please post any options you are aware of with details about the logistics, groups, sect, etc.
  12. many of my shia friends and their families prefer going to ziarat then going to umrah or hajj i asked them why is it so and they replied as it is financially easier to go to ziarat then to umrah or hajj. Can anyone explain this thought?

  14. Muslims believe that Quran is the Book of Allah uncovered to PBUH (Prophet Muhammad) that will proceed positively till fulfillment of the world to guide and direct the entire humanity, independent of country, land mass, nation, era, and region. It is not simply a wellspring of identification and direction for the follower additionally benevolence changing. This conviction requested that Muslims should create a dynamic association with it, consider over its verses, interpret it, got the light of its preaching, a conclusion it genuinely and ought to have satisfied the obligations set on them through this book. However, the instance of Muslims is unusual. They don’t even feel the need of perusing this book with perception. They are pleased only by reading it and trusting in. In the result, their connection with Quran has truly been laid up. The focal region of crucial should have been holding by this book and the Sunnah (customs) of the prophet for Muslims is carried by various identities and their books or that they have actually wound up being free to take after their own choice. This situation is not such that we could basically ignore it. Briefly, yet there is a need to analyze, the reason and dispose of the inabilities to think straight concerning this. Generally, individuals believe that the Quran is in Arabic and they don’t know Arabic, it is not required for them to understand the sense and meaning of the Quran. This reason would have been satisfactory if there were no resources available for comprehension its definition and message. Though, what does this reason describe when each kind of asset to appreciate its importance and message is promptly accessible? In modern times guidance is normal and the new routines for printing have really given enormous assets to distribution and diffusion of learning, thus far, as the Quran is concerned its interpretation is quickly accessible in loads of, and discourse in a very couple of, dialects of the world. At that point, what stays away from us to exploit them? Nowadays everybody must do an effort to make up a great career and future; a college peruses a number of books, studies them inside and out and commits a worthy piece of his life for receiving information. How extreme is his undertaking! Everyone is ready to face these issue for common advantages, yet, to deal the upsides of the hereafter none deals with the exploration of the Quran. By taking in the jargon of Quran or its explanation, the ability to comprehend the Book of Allah can be created and when Quran is presented in the Salat, its implications can be observed and its sweet taste can enhance the worship. When a person receives a letter from his dear ones in a language not known to him, makes another person read it keeping in mind the purpose to appreciate it. Likewise, he couldn’t care less to understand the message conveyed by the Allah for his slaves. So, surely you will go to perform Hajj and Umrah right? Yes, we are here to help out by offering affordable umrah packages usa to make your spiritual journey memorized.

  17. Salaam brothers and sisters, this thread is about your travels including past travels. I have traveled only once. And that was when I traveled to India back in late 2007 and that was for only 2 weddings. My parents are from India so I am technically Indian but I was born in Canada so I am Canadian. Now recently, my father planned to take me to Mecca for umrah, and to India twice and to Iraq for ziyarat. It's going to be a great trip, it has been 9 years since I last traveled.
  18. Salam, Well my Mom left for the airport a while back. She will be doing Hajj this year inshallah. So this molana who is going with their group issues two jurisprudential laws at the last minute. 1. She told my mom and everyone else that they have to pay khums on all the clothes they are taking with them on Hajj. I was like what....??? My understanding is everyday clothes shoes etc are exempted from khums provided you haven't been lavish. My mother didn't even get any new clothes made for Hajj.Does she need to pay khums on those clothes?? 2. Second law issued: everyone going on Hajj will sacrifice an animal in Makkah, but according to him, everyone should pay for another animal back here in home country too since the meat from the animals in Saudia Arabia never reaches the poor so that animal doesn't count. He stressed that if anyone didn't follow these two rules their Hajj would be invalid. Anyone heard of these rulings before?? Why is following religion getting more and more complicated? :( Why don't the Ayatullahs revise the khums laws and so they are practically applicable on the monetary system today and easily understood by all?? I could be wrong but my feeling is that Molana wanted to create a last minute panic about people's Hajj being invalid and it worked. Quite a few people shuffled to their feet quickly and handed over the sacrificial animal and khums money to that Molana, lest their Hajj becomes invalid.(he is authorised to collect khums) I feel so many people confused about khums laws. I know some people who want to pay khums but find the rulings too difficult to decipher. Anyway, my Mother didn't give him any money. I told mom I will confirm and if she needs to do these extra things I will take care of them before the day of Hajj.
  19. Salam alaykom dear brothers and sisters. Insha'Allah I'm going to Hajj this year. I dont know anything about it. I need som advice and maybe a to-do-list before going, Insha'Allah. I even have another question about hajj. I want to take my grandmother to Hajj but, she might not be able to go because of her passport. Can I do tawaf and everyting for her or can you only do that for people who has passed away? Thank you and Ramadhan Mubarak to you all!
  20. I remember this man in Afghanistan who could not write his own name, he was cruel to his own wife and children and mother, he displeased his brother, he usurped the property of his orphan nephew, he usurped some of our land. Yet he is a Hajji, the people in his local area, his relatives, they are poor and in need. He does not let his children go to school because he wants them to work for money. What was the reason for his Hajj? so he could get involved in the decision making of his tribe, when he became Hajji, he was then invited to be one of the "elders" in the local community because he was a Hajji now. So it makes me wonder if these kinds of Hajj are even accepted? There are also other people in Afghanistan and some in the UK, who are the most untrustworthy and deviant individuals yet they are still Hajji, they go around using their name to mislead people and gain their trust so that they may loot them. Should we even give credit to anyone for being a Hajji? Hajj is an act of worship, shouldn't it be for Allah and not for people? If it is for Allah then why praise Hajjis so much and give them special places in society? So now when I hear praises saying "Oh Hajji Fulan" I just think "even Shabnam Suraya has become a Hajji". :lol: ( I didn't know Shabnam Suraya until one friend of mine made fun of Hajjis and used this person as an example, just Google or Youtube her name and you will see what kind of a person she is.
  21. Hajj

    (salam) As far as I was taught, performing Hajj negates all past sins (giving that they are not with another human) Considering that the statement above is true, does this mean it will also negate the need to pray missed prayers? (wasalam)
  22. Changes To The Haram- Practical?

  23. I was watching some videos on Hajj last night and started to become turned off on the idea of performing Hajj to Mecca for several reasons. 1. Cost: at $10,000 a head I'm sure this money could be used for a lot of other useful things to uplift our ummah. And why does it cost so much? Even with the expensive packages you are still just getting the bare minimum. 2. Crowds: I hate crowds. Even with the new additions made by the Saudi government, it just looks like it has gotten worse. I think it has had the opposite affect and now they are packing in more pilgrims. 3. Saudi Government: I hate them. Even the leaders in my own masjid say that the Saudi government is not Islamic and are causing harm by breeding radicalism. I did some searching on ShiaChat and came across this... http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/234992812-ziyarah-of-imam-al-husseinas-is-better-than-hajj/?hl=%2Bhajj Then I came across this thread on another forum from 2007.... http://www.pakpassion.net/ppforum/showthread.php?50680-Should-we-boycott-Hajj
  24. Asalam o alaikum I am from Lahore, Pakistan. Have you heard of "Valima" dinner given in honor of people returning from Hajj? is it Mustahib? is this custom prevalent in Pakistan only? Is it given by the people returning from Hajj themselves? or is it the friends and family of the returning "Hajjis" who host the feast? Walaikum Asalam
  25. Hajj Trip

    I just got news that I am lucky enough to be able to go to Hajj this year. Now that the excitement at the surprise has worn off I'm left with anxiety. I leave in 6 days and the truth is I have no idea what to pack. What type of clothes, what are the best books, what duas are best? I know absolutely nothing about hajj, but I know that I'm meant to go because God has blessed me enough to allow me to easily go. I plan to do my best in the next couple of days to prepare myself and have started researching, but I need help. So whatever anyone has, big advice or small please share it. Thanks in advance!!
