  1. Salaam Alaykum all, may this message find you well. I am a Shia female that belongs to a very respectful family alhamdullilah. However during my journey at University I came across a Sunni male. We want to get married. We are aware of the challenges this may pose and have in fact spoken about it before because we do not want any problems to arise after marriage especially with our kids. It will take a lot of compromises though but most aspects of Shiaism are not a problem for him. As you have figured from the title, I have already approached my parents and all I have received is a no. I was expecting this, however I do think persistence may pay off. Do not get me wrong, I do not want to engage in anything haram nor do I want to compromise with my Aqidah. I have discussed with the man I wish to marry that I strongly believe Ali should have come first and I have immense love for the ahlulbayt. my parents do not see it that way and are afraid of what the community will think and think my faith will fade and I will divert to the wrong path. I do not want to make my parents unhappy or do the wrong thing but I am willing to learn about both sides for my own sake so that my faith is not merely inherited. Although from what I do know I am convinced I am on the right path but I do acknowledge that we are all muslims at the end of the day and the ummah really needs to unite at this point in time. Also, when my father refused I asked for him to do an Istikhara for my own reassurance and he refused because as my wali he does not accept the person I wish to marry. Is it true that the wali is the one that should take an istikhara or can I do it myself? Also, do you think I should? Finally, I am an Agha Sistani follower who says that if there's a chance of being misled, marrying a Sunni is not permissible. However as I mentioned earlier most things we can agree to and I will continuously be practising my Shia faith. In conclusion I would like some advice on how to approach my parents and get the to agree. Also if you are aware of the ways and ruling on istikhara. Please let me know. Thank you Jazakallah

  6. Salaamaulaykum, brothers and sisters i am a below knee amputee , lost my leg six years ago in a road accident. I am completely independent, do daily tasks just like normal person. Just completed by undergrad and now I am going to United States for my masters . It's been a year, since I broke up with the love of my life, whom I loved from the most deepest region of my heart, towards whom while looking, no matter how many chaotic situations I was circumscribed by ,when I looked at her, was always at ease. During our relationship, I never touched her, you know what I mean to say...no physical or haram contact...just respected and loved her just the way she admired and followed Islam. I thought , she was the one, but all of a sudden everything just changed, her mother came to know about my scenario, that I was a handicap, although I use one of the best artificial limb, imported from germany, I can run too and it's hard for anyone to recognize that I use an artificial limb. Her mother started looking for marriage proposals for her..and I remember it was my birthday she texted me "Good luck for everything" and that was the worst day of my life. I asked her why, and their was just a pin drop silence on the other side..believe me the pain of losing the limb was nothing in front of this one, what I felt at that very instant..The reason her silence indicated that "I was a handicap or disabled person"...I just retracted myself because the reason was like..Her mother could have said something else like any other reason but she just remained silent and believe me ,if the reason was other than "being disabled" .. I could have said to her mother that "Ok give me some time, I'll be the man , whom you would like to offer your daughter to " . But In my scenario even if I had the extra time , It was impossible for me to get the thing back , I lost long ago. Every morning I woke up, the very first thought is this one only and tears come off my eyes. I used to play guitar, sing . Now I have just given up on singing and guitar. I read Quran translation nowdays, but whenever I think of falling in love with someone or marrying someone, my soul gets dilapidated and all I have found is just peace in the recitation of quran and offering salah,previously I was a gregarious person and now I have transformed myself into a brutally conserved one. And I dream of a place now, where people like me are not considered as something as an ostracized element of the society. And when I think of falling in love or marrying someone , thinking about ""the story of Julaybib, one of the contemporaries of the Prophet, is another vivid example of inclusion. In addition to being poor, Julaybib had an unpleasant physical appearance and nobody wished to let their daughter marry him. Upon the Prophet’s request, a noble family gave him their daughter in marriage."" I say to myself that only prophet can reduce the pain i am going through... I told you my story, Now I was to ask, that ""people like me are not considered for marriage"" you can assume the reason according to my past encounters... I know it's haram to go in a relationship before marriage in islam....Is it permissible for peple like me to have a relationship before marriage resulting in love marriage.. you know the reason..when people will hear about my disability they would just say "NO" ..hence the question ".Is it permissible for me to have a relationship before marriage resulting in love marriage "?????
  7. Intro & First 3 Coloring Pages

    Bismillah Assalaamu alaikum One day I was in the store, and while my husband was taking his time picking a birthday card for someone, a nearby bookshelf piqued my interest. I glanced over it--mostly cheesy-looking teen romance novels. But there were also quite a lot of children's coloring books for sale. I thumbed through some of the coloring books. Disney princesses galore. And then the idea struck. Why don't I make a Muslim coloring book so that Muslim parents options aren't limited to scantily clad princesses and other non-Muslim characters when buying coloring books for their kids? So I began. InshaAllah my goal is to have a completed book by the end of next summer (20-25 pages). In the meantime I am selling individual page downloads as I complete them. I've created this blog so that I can have feedback, advice, suggestions, etc. And of course, shameless self-promotion I haven't done any other promotion yet--I wanted to start here on Shiachat because it's more comfortable and I can get some advice. InshaAllah later when I have more pages, I can start branching off to more social media outlets. Download here

    Assalamo Alaykom to All We have new froum for your best videos about Islam and muslims... Good wishes for All
  9. Asalamalekum, We hear that if a marja is expert in a particular field, one must follow them and that issue. But i have never heard of any such mujtahid. I think they all have to take same courses, in able to become a marja. Therefore, there is always a confusion on who is the most learned, because non of them are studying one field.
  10. IIPR intends an event to be happen on the subject of Prophetic Model of Interfaith Dialogue with Christians. This event benefits from the famous letter of prophet Muhammad called “The Promise of Muhammad to the Christians untill End of the World” IIPR also intends to have a “Call for Paper” note on the site inviting friends from other faiths to take part in this event and specially to have a comparison between this letter and the Second Vatican Council document opening the horizons for dialogue. http://iipr.ir/activities/upcoming-events/ http://conferencealerts.com/show-event?id=172815
  11. I am kind confused when I think about it , I am muslim now but I don't justify the way those people brought islam over . like why kill and kidnap non muslim women , invading another country and taking their womens as sex slaves and humiliating them , why ? should I forgive those people specially when they being treated as heros of islam and fatihin , and if I called them heros what does that make my non muslim ancestors ! I am sure indian , iranian , and other non arab muslims understand what I mean with my question ? can someone enlight me on what should I do about my thinking , I feel sorry for my ancestors and can't forgive the conquerors of those times , but I still like islam as religion but I don't accept the way they spread islam .
  12. Photographs

    Salam, Is it permissible for a man to use his beardless photographs in social media or other places? My marja is Sistani.
  13. As-salamu alaykum, dear brothers and sisters. There is an age-old global stigmatisation surrounding lawyers as being deceptive, immorally corrupt and greedy. As insulting as it may sound, it is worth noting that, like any other fabrication, it is not without its share of truth and falsity. However, like any other profession, the legal profession has been given a bad name due to certain lamentable individuals and their equally lamentable practices. In my humble opinion, however, this profession remains to be amongst the noblest ones. On that note, let me ask you this: What practices are condemned, morally and legally (with sharia and teachings of the Ahlulbyt as the comparative standards ), by Islam for legal practitioners? I would really appreciate if lawyers, judges, academics and law students contribute to this discussion. If possible please share personal experiences. I thank you in advance for taking the trouble of contributing to this discourse. May infinite blessings of Allah shower upon you.
  14. Islamic Digital Library

    In the name of Allah. This is a not a shia website, nor a sunni one. It belongs to The Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT) (a sunni-arab majority Islamic Movement which swore allegiance to the Islamic Revolution) and it roots from the Islamic Revolution and benefits from both sunni and shia Islam. http://www.icit-digital.org I hope that we all benefit from this. Also please follow on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ICIT.Digital.Library https://www.facebook.com/ICIT.Digital.Library Thanks. ma salam.
  15. Salam I was wondering about the view upon videos actually making fun of "Allahu Akbar". In the internet we typically see videos that make fun of this islamic term/sentence. So I was wondering what the islamic response to this would be because I feel kind of ridiculed by these videos. Like Allahu Akbar gets turned into a so called "meme" which for me is totally ridicolous because of these isis dogs. I don't know how to respond or react to this and I've met even muslims who don't mind and even they are making fun of it.
  16. Assalomaliekum to all of my brothers and sisters, As we all are aware that the opposition is tightening its position with false news creating hatred, false information and a disunity among muslims around the world. The biggest problem is that there are no blogs/news agencies except the few making a least impact to counter the falsehood of biased media. To ensure the mandatory voice of the muslims around the world are clearly heard and the message of rightness travels among the internet users, I thought to start a news blog targeting the niche of Middle East particularly to start a media war against the Zionist and the great Satanic plots to dominate media. I have a plan and looking for a number of volunteers representing their countries. Placements: Writers/BloggersVideo/Audio EditorsDesignersDevelopersMarketing Peopleand anything you could think of would help us outInitially, we are just looking for a set of volunteers to kick start this holy media war against the devilish plots. To fulfill this, we are looking for a perfect foundation. I haven't a bought a domain yet but has registered for the hosting package. I'm really looking for a baseeji media army and media enthusiasts to join us in this war against oppression. Kickstart: The idea is to have a number of volunteers ready to represent their nation. Initially, some content writers could help us get on what we are looking for in a bigger picture. If its worth it, pin this topic for a week so that it could be highlighted among enthusiasts in the political section. Alhamudullilah, Wassalam

  18. Games That Can Train Us For Jehad

    For me, I think Zelda games are good ways that we can use to train ourselves for Jehad. It makes us ready for when the time of Jehad comes by Allah's will and we have to use our swords to fight. You know Legend of Zelda does have you play as Link who has a sword to fight with and that will prepare us for when our Imam comes. Does that sound good. I mean Ocarina of Time,Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword seem like good sword training games that are useful to us Muslims before our Imam comes. I mean Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess both are very beneficial Zelda games that teach us sword fighting skills so that we can prove to the Imam that we're ready for sword fighting against enemies.

  21. Howza Ilimiya Of England

    The Howza ilmiya of England receives Dr. Shomali for some lectures and lucky for us, the Islamic Centre England has uploaded all of the lectures on Akhlaq, Islamic Theology etc. Please have a visit to ICEL, the YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/islamiccentre1998/playlists
  22. I have to ask. When I talk about some Afghan shias who live in the west. When I ask them about their opinion on Islamic countries they feel upset because many Afghans who fled Afghanistan travelled to the west because of its welfare system and they say that they would have preferred to remain in an Islamic country but no Islamic country offered them citizenship or welfare and as a result they feel Islamic countries are not as Islamic as the non Islamic EU, UK, Australia or US, in terms of its humanitarian causes. While I myself have never seen any other Islamic country besides Afghanistan I am told by my dad that he had no choice but to move to the UK because the Islamic nations did not want us. So it makes me wonder what the Islamic countries are willing to do for their Muslim brethren who have become refugees? And is there any kind of support available for Muslim families who want to move back to an Islamic country? I know Islamic nations are not as rich as the UK, US but do they have anything similar to a welfare system? Also my dad is looking to move our entire family back to Afghanistan I too agree with this since over the years people like us are more and more wanted to leave. I myself am looking to move my family back to an Islamic country if I am able, I am looking at Iran, but I have no idea what I am getting myself into or if I am making the right choice in choosing the leave the UK. Any thoughts?
  23. (bismillah) (salam) , InshAllah you are well! I wanted to open up a thread in which we can share ideas about how we can encourage the youth to WANT to become practicing Muslims in a place where Islamic teachings are either scarce or nonexistent. There are so many theories about how to go about this roaming around the internet and speech but very little 'practical' ideas that have been implemented in community centers and/or mosques in the West. Having said that, what kind of fun activities have you done ( or think could be done) to teach shia Islam whilst making it engaging for youth/young adults who really feel 'forced' to be there? Here are a few ideas that I've come across by either consulting or practicing: -Organizing a theatrical plays/movies about an Islamic teaching or history -Islamic Book reading club -Creating a question and answer competitions like jeopardy between two groups -painting projects regarding islamic events -molding clay into historical islamic events -photo/video/art contests -teaching kids about charity by helping them make their personalized piggy banks -keeping a 'kind acts' and 'sins' (the sins should be personal not for sharing) diary / or jar to be more creative---personalizing the jar or notebook could be another activity -making 'ya hossain' headbands -Islamic sleepover retreats -islamic movie nights -making a piñata with written 'sin's on it, so when you hit it, you are 'symbolically' hitting away the sins - having a sisters panel to discuss hejab and the youth insecurities about it - skyping/google hangout speakers from around the nation or globe -making 12 groups to research facts about the 12 imams, then to present their findings on small posters. collectively binding that into a book about the Ahlul bait as. -Giving water/hot chocolate out during ashura -Repeating quranic verses for students to memorize& quran competitions -teaching about eating halal/haram by having a game where they have to add the feather on the turkeys tail while being blindfolded--the activity's introduction could be a mini speech about halal meat? -making a massive paper tree and having the youth to write things that they are thankful for on separate leaves -s c r a p booking -having mini lectures given by members of the community & provide snacks -have sporting events as a means to bond -drawing/crafting/baking/cooking etc. workshops as a means to bond -making a family tree of the Ahlul Bait as whilst telling stories -having a friday or sunday school AND inviting parents for a mini parent-teacher conferences once a semester -creating a youth/young adult committee -creating a point system where youth can receive prizes for rewards -writing poetry given certain key words -taking the youth/young adult to the zoo/ice skating etc to bring compassion -Canned good drive to the homeless -volunteering at Elderly homes -writing letters to self about self improvements to be handed back to the individuals a year later -making an islamic activities diary to pass along the next generation -translating islamic text as a group ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ updating the list based on thread responses: -bake sale -Essay competition- [Give the youth a topic and ask them to compose an essay of a certain number of words. Have three judges from adults who will choose the three best essays. Have the three winners read their essay aloud to everyone. Award them with small prizes. Give a small gift to everyone who participated. Talk about having the same event in the future and hoping to make it an annual event.] A movie night [would be really good for teenagers if you could find an engaging way to criticize and look at a movie Islamically. If content is an issue, there are places where you can purchase edited versions of movies that have been edited for broadcast television.] If you are a parent, teacher or anyone with a creative mind, I would love to have your input to implement such activities at our youth/young adult Islamic centers someday inshAllah. Please keep adding to the list. It could be a good parenting guide for all of us. jazakAllah khairan & thanks so much in advance! Mysterious secrets
  24. Can someone list me all the special days in a year according to the Islamic calendar? Like dates when certain holidays or special days are and for how long. I have a problem knowing or remembering special dates. So someone link me or list me all the special days in a year according to the Islamic calender. Thank you very much.
  25. Salamalaikom dear brothers and sisters We are trying to buy a place for our Islamic (Shia) centre in Auckland, New Zealand. Our association includes people of different ethnic backgrounds and nationalities (Iranian, Afghani, Indian and Arab). We are appealing to anyone who can assist us even with a small amount to make a donation to our centre's account. At the moment we have a about $480000 due to a brother giving his house for selling and buying a place and having collected some through donations. But we need a little bit more to buy a place which accommodates the number of people who come to the centre. We are currently leasing a place on a temporary basis. For more information you can view our facebook page (updated regularly): https://www.facebook.com/FatimaZahraCharitable Or our website: bibifatima.com (which needs updating) The account information for our association can be found here (we are a registered charity in New Zealand): http://www.bibifatima.org/english/donate/ Please make a donation only if you want to as we cannot refund anyone who makes a donation (yes we have had a very small amount of people doing this). Even a small donation can make a difference if its made by many people. For further enquiry you can contact us on: enquiry@bibifatima.org For the dear moderators (I was not sure were to post this so I posted it in the general enquiries).
