  1. Mutah Issues

    Salam all, I was looking for some guidance on something. Alhamdulilah I have just came back from Ziyarat and after speaking with a Alim there, he made me make a promise and that was to drop my most dangerous sin. Ashamed to admit, but as a young male, my worst sin is istimna(masturbation). The Alim advises that I get married to stay away from sin and take care of human needs in halal fashion however since I will not be getting married for at least another 2-3 years due to school and parents not willing til completion, he recommended mutah with Ahle kitab. my issue is that I feel guilty doing Nikkah mutah solely for the sake of justifying pleasure, and just because it is better than istimna. Also, to pay someone willing here as a dowry, I feel like is very similar to prostitution and have a hard time accepting that. I am only asking because I want to take care of my human desires in a halal fashion and it’s getting to the point my mind is consumed by these dirty thoughts. I usually controlled this by astagfirullah but I have stopped that now. please looking for some help or advice. Jazak

  11. Nose job haram or halal?

    Okay, guys. Please hear me out first. Okay so, it all begun when i went to high school. I was in class when this boy who sat beside me said : ''Wow you have the hughest nose i've ever seen.'' I ignored it, but when i went home i looked at my nose realising he was right. I never really paid attention to it ... because i was young and didn't really care about how i looked? But well yeah, im by the way a girl. So my nose is really big, i've basically my father's nose and sometimes i wished i had my mother's. It is hooked, it doesnt look good from the profile nor the front... and it's kind of wide too. Everytime i talk it takes a weird shape, if i laugh the tip goes down and i basically look like a witch. My brothers do have these noses too, but their's doesnt go down or anything and it itsn't that bad and also they're boys so it doesnt really look weird on them. Ofcourse my parents Always say that my nose is beautiful, they are your parents after all. But i know my nose is not beautiful and im so self conscious about it. I've got a couple of comments in my life about it and the last one was very recent. I was in school and there were like this 'popular girls' who are 2 years younger. Anyway i was just focusing on the computer and they joked about me looking like a bird... i heard them but simply ignored it... like always Im very scared to meet new people, also im going to college in like two months and im scared .... When I walk i Always pretend like there is something in my eye so i can wipe it off with my hand so it will cover my nose and no one will see my profile.. I mentioned a nose job a couple times to my mother and she says it's not allowed because it's god's creation and that i should be thankful that i have a nose and that im healthy. She's right i guess?? I mean i am healthy and at least i got a nose... and doing a nose job means you're not happy with that what Allah gave you. but it still hurts me when i see every girl with this cute nose or people who got surgery and they look great after it.. so i searched on internet and people actually say it's not haram ... but i dont know im 17 and im not planning a nose job anytime soon ... but maybe for the future?? My nose is really an obstacle for me, i dont like going outside because people will see it, and i really cant make new friends or something.. also i have a job interview in two days and im scared that they will not want me because of my big ugly nose. does someone know if a nose job is haram or halal?? Can someone please answer thanks for hearing me out it kind of felt good to tell someone as i cannot talk to my friends abt it bc i dont want anymore attention on my nose and well i cant really talk to my parents about it. By the way, it's basically like my father's side of the family that has this kind of noses and my mother's side doesnt they all have cute little noses.. and i think it looks bigger because i also wear hijab so it looks more prominent.. and it is already big.. (ps: sorry for my bad english, it's not my first language)
  12. Social media rules

    What are the rules of social media? Are you allowed to have social media accounts? If not, is there a reason as to why you cannot?
  13. (Bismillah) Salam I don't wanna sound like an atheist but I'm trying to be as critical as I can cuz these questions are holding me back from being a Shia Muslim and I would be so happy if u could answer these questions so that people don't always win me in argues with these questions thank u. 1. Is it true that if u revert or convert away from Islam u will be killed: Quran Quran (4:89) - "They wish that you should reject faith as they reject faith, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of God; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper." Verse 4:65 says that those who have faith are in "full submission" to Muhammad's teachings. This verse explains what should happen to Muslims who do not have faith. Quran (9:11-12) - "But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief - Lo! they have no binding oaths - in order that they may desist." Other verses that seem to support the many Hadith that establish the death sentence for apostates are Quran verses 2:217, 9:73-74, 88:21, 5:54, 9:66. Hadith and Sira The most reliable Hadith collection contain numerous accounts of Muhammad and his companions putting people to death for leaving Islam. According to verse4:80 of the Quran: "Those who obey the Messenger obey Allah." Sahih Bukhari (52:260) - "...The Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' " Sahih Bukhari (83:37) - "Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate." Sahih Bukhari (84:57) - [In the words of] "Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'" Sahih Bukhari (89:271) - A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to "the verdict of Allah and his apostle." Sahih Bukhari (84:58) - "There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, 'Who is this (man)?' Abu Muisa said, 'He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.' Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, 'I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.' Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, 'Then we discussed the night prayers'" 2. Why is Shiism the right sect when we hit our selfs for Imam Hussein wen hurting yourself is haram and hitting yourself on the chest makes health issues worse. And did the imams or prophet tell us to hit each other or slice each other up and tawasul is haram right u can only pray to Allah or else it's haram in the beginning of the Quran it says worship Allah alone only him and there is no verse supporting to say ya ali or ya Hussein why can't we say ya Allah or ya Muhammad rasolallah why do we put more focus on the imams and not as much to the prophet. If you answer to these questions and it make sense and with sources I will convert to Shia Islam 3. Is the Darwin theory true? Or Adam and Eve can any of it be true and how. 4. It's haram to take over other countries and take their land like tha caliphs did right and if the prophet allowed it is their any proof and why was it to have power is this the pure Islam? 5. We shouldn't be visiting Imams shrines no I mean like puttinggg gold around it it's haram right and also people talk with the imams why isn't this haram and some imams say that the Quran is not the right version. And they focus so much on Imam Hussein and hit them selves why is it ok if u don't do that? Extra questions why are the Middle East contries back is it cuz of o freedom like the sharia law why do people that don't Belive in Islam have to follow our rules and don't u think thoose rules were good for 1400 years ago, why do we have marjas? thank u so much brothers and sisters Allah hafiz
  14. I recently signed up on a site, where you get paid for doing other people's homework. I've rejected every assignment proposal that has asked for acknowledgement that the student has done it himself. I refrain from attempting tests or quizzes for people as well. Doing homework for people can be considered as help init? Just like your household or your tutor help you (that's my opinion). If anyone knows a proper mushtahid's verdict on the topic, feel free to answer, thank you!
  15. Cats

    Salam's brothers and sisters, I own a cat pet which lives indoors and often goes outside, however she does have a litter box and she manages to litter in that when she can. I feed her canned and dry food, now the food i that i give her is the usual canned food you buy from the department stores they are not halal certified. They usually come in beef, chicken or fish. The dry food comes in also different flavors and types that are available to the general public. My question is that if i feed my lunch then say after 5 mins now, as you no the nature of the cat is to usually lick her self or self cleaning as they say many times during the day, she would lick lick lick, so my question is if i touch her hair for example with my wet hands, are my hands now najis and whatever it touches, or if my cat licks her legs and then goes outside after it has rained making her feet also wet would it be in the state of najasat? i would like if someone could answer it.
  16. Free item with purchase

    Salam. I have some question regarding free item with purchase. Is it halal? What about some company giving random scratch off gifts in some of the products, such that most buyers get "try again" and some get "free coffee" or "free candy" ? Is it halal to use such scratch-off items if obtained?
  17. Is Ben n' Jerrys Halal

    Don't know why but I was randomly looking through Ben n' Jerrys chunky monkey ingredients. Saw something called carrageenan and looked it up on Google. Basically it's extract of sea weed "but during its production it is crystallized either by Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol or Potassium Chloride (KCl) or nothing. If Potassium Chloride (KCL) or nothing is used during the processing of Carrageenan then it will be Halal. But if Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol was use to crystallized the Carrageenan then this Carrageenan will become NOT HALAL ingredient.". A third link I came across shows halal certification for 10 of their flavors. http://sweetsandcolors.blogspot.com/2011/06/six-halal-ben.html?m=1 INSHALLAH this turns out to be halal. It's the only ice cream that actually tastes good.
  18. Arts And Crafts Appreciation Thread

    (bismillah) Regarding the topic of arts and crafts, are there any ahadith from Ahlul Bayt (as) that promote or demote arts and crafts? Is it permissible to earn money using arts and crafts? The works exclude any blasphemous creations such as sculpting an animal or a human... Thanks in advance (salam)
  19. 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.

  21. Salam dear friends, I have a quick question about life insurance. I was raised in a Sunni family, and according the Hanafi fiqh we followed, taking out life insurance was deemed haram. Why is life insurance permissable in Shia Islam? As this is the case, who would I take out life insurance with? I live in London. All answers will be greatly appreciated.
  22. [LAWS]Henna on fingernails?

    As salaam alaikum. I know of some women that apply henna to their nails. I was wondering is it haram? Can you still pray/ make wudhu with henna on your nails? I've had a browse online about this matter but haven't really found anything on this topic. Any advice/ knowledge would be much appreciated as I'd like to apply some to my nails but I want to make sure it's permissible first. JazakAllah in advance.
  23. I live in US and i used to eat pretty much all kind of chips and candies and jellos. Now, i try to avoid gelatin and all the products which could have any enzymes or fats derived from animal. For instance, I can't eat all the tasty chips and candies because they enzymes or gelatin in them or they don't have U sign on the packing. Many cosmetic products use animal fat and i don't know what type or animal they are using. Also, many vitamins have gelatin in them. For now i am trying to follow these rules i got from muslim consumer group website The word " Vegetable" is mentioned before or in parenthesis for fat based ingredients statement of a food product; for example vegetable Mono and Diglyceride. If a Halal symbol such as "H" in triangle or kosher symbol such as U, UD, V, CRC, KMH, COR, K or KD appear on the package (without wine, alcohol, all types of gelatin, L-Cysteine from human hair), it means that the fat based ingredient is obtained from vegetable fat. Inquiry with the food manufacturer is another way of identifying them. The purpose is to verify that the ingredients are Halal or kosher certified and also to inquire about any haram processing aid ingredients which are not mentioned in the ingredients list. Sometimes manufacturer uses Halal or kosher certified ingredients without finished product being Halal or kosher certified, breads and buns are the best example. Some manufacturer have Halal or kosher certified products but prefer not to have Halal or kosher symbol on their products. But i would like to know what is ruling of shia marjas on this issue????
  24. Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters, From the title you can see the issue I am currently stuck with. I have met a sunni man and hope to get to know him better before we get married. We both started talking casually and there was no flirting. We talked about our families, issues, future plans of marriage, qualities we wish our future spouses would have. After a while, I realised he ticked so many of the boxes for the qualities of my future husband. I really saw potential in him which I never saw in anyone else before. When I told him how I felt, he was really relieved and said he felt the same and he never felt so sure about introducing a girl to his family. We both agreed that we wanted to be with each other with the intention of marrying each other. He is a sunni but a good muslim so Im not worried about the shia-sunni issue. We havent been on any dates since we only just decided to see each other but I was wondering if there was no halal way of seeing him? We are both quite young, medical students with the same mindset and ideas generally and islamically. I have done istakhara by myself and used a Tasbih, which gave a good result, but I was wondering if anyone here could do an istakhara using the Quran for me? I can't really talk to my local mullah about this. so background story aside, is there an islamic way of seeing someone? can someone do an istakhara for me using the Quran since I have a hard time interpreting it? Jazakallah
  25. What is this verse (5:1) precisely in Arabic? Different translations say "four footed animals" rather than grazing livestock. My husband, who is a newer Muslim than I, asked me why are we not allowed to eat carnivores, and I went straight to this verse, but my translation said "four footed animals" instead of "grazing livestock", and I had to scramble to find another translation. (I have a few, but my books are still not organized after moving house in August.) Also, is there another verse or a reliable hadith which explains the reason for not eating carnivores or omnivores? We aren't going to rush out and get a lion to snack on, we're obedient folks. I just want to be able to answer a question if the answer is out there. I mean, everyone around my house knows that I know everything. I have a reputation to maintain.
