  1. Salam I don’t know if this applies to all Shias but from what I am aware of in my community we only pray 3 times a day unlike other Muslims who prays 5 times a day. I think we combine prayers? Either way I have passed the age where children have to start praying and I don’t know how to. I can’t find any online Shi’a praying instructions only Sunni ways. And the amount of times isn’t the only difference, we do different gestures as well I think and we pray with a clay tablet too. Can someone give me instructions on how to pray like Shias?

    اسلام علىکم I thinks more of a western culture it is ,but can i have some advice on how to manage to offer salat when there is make-up all around the face and there is no way that forhead touches the turbat(سجده گاه)
  6. Salat

    Salam. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the prayer times mentioned in this Quranic verse; Surah Ta ha Chapter 20 Verse 130: "So be patient over what they say and exalt [ Allah ] with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting; and during periods of the night [exalt Him] and at the ends of the day, that you may be satisfied." Here, "before the rising of the sun" refers to Fajr, "before its setting" refers to Asr, "during periods of the night" refers to Isha and "at the ends of the day" refers to Mahgrib. This is what I can understand from this verse but in this way aren't we talking about 4 prayer times instead of 3? Jazak Allah.

  8. Salat al Ja3far al dayar

    Can anyone help me on, how to pray the prayer of Ja3far al Dayar? Thank you very much!
  9. Wudu (Ablution)

    Asalam Alaikom Brothers and Sisters, I have a question in regards to wudu. Today i received an injury on my right palm. The doctor said that I'm unable to wash the area. However, now my concern is that I am unable to perform wudu for my obligatory prayers. To my understanding and research I am able to perform wudu al jabireh, but that requires using my right hand to pour water on my face, arms etc. My question is, am I able to perform wudu using my left hand? If not, please provide me alternative ways. I do taqleed of seyid al Sistani. Wasalam, Servant of God

  11. Salat & Menstruation Confusion

    Assalamualaikum, I am a new convert to Shia Islam. I have some questions about menstruation and salat. 1. Do we have to make up salat missed during menstruation, or is dhikr during the time of menstruation sufficient? 2. My period is very irregular, sometimes lasting full months at a time. Do I just not do salat for months? Or is there a time when it becomes permissible to do salat during menstruation? Thank you.
  12. Hello. I'm a woman in my mid 20's. I haven't told anyone this, but when I was around the age of 9 I somehow came across masturbation by myself, like it just happened, and I continued to occasionally do it as the years went on. I honestly didn't know what it was I was doing until I became a teenager. It wasn't until 2 years ago where I was on ayatollah sistani's website, that I learned that masturbation was haram in Islam and that it requires ghusl jinabat. I have been fasting and doing my prayers since the age of 9, but because I did not do ghusl, would that mean I have to make up all those years worth of fasts and prayers from the age of 9, even though I did not know what I was doing was haram and that I needed to do ghusl? What do I need to do? Thanks for your help

  14. I have learned Al-fatihah Al-ikhlas and Al-kawthar and trying to now learn the shia tashhahud, but I can not find a video showing how to pronounce these words, almost every video I find are sunni videos and if it is a shia one it's not slow enough and we'll pronounced so I can understand and actually learn it. does anyone know of or possibly could make a video to help me I only wish to be able to do salat on my own so I stop missing them and don't have to travel far to be able to do them. I live in American, Tennessee to be more exact and all the masjids around here are sunni and strongly have stand points of shi'ites. any help would be greatly appreciated. Assalamu alaikum wa ramatula wa baraktu
  15. Alsalamu Alaykum Firstly to reply this question, we shall know the cases which tayammum in accordance with them is obligatory to be performed. Perform Tayammum in place of Wudhu or Ghusl when: 1. Not enough water is available for Wudhu or Ghusl. 2. Obtaining water for Wudhu will endanger your life or property or you are unable to procure water by any means. 3. Using the available water will leave insufficient water for drinking and pose a risk of dying of thirst or illness, or difficulty for yourself or your dependents. 4. Washing your face and hands with water will endanger your health. 5. Water is available but you do not have permission to use it. 6. There is a risk that performing Wudhu or Ghusl will cause the time of the entire or a part of the prayer to end. 7. If the body or clothing is ritually impure (Najis) and the person possesses only as much water so that if he was to perform Wudhu or a Ghusl, no more water would be available for making his body or clothing pure for prayer. Tayammum can be done on earth, sand, and a lump of clay or stone. Earth is the first choice for tayammum. If there is no earth then either sand or a lump of clay can be used. If earth, sand or a lump of clay is not available then a stone can be used. However, one cannot perform tayammum on minerals e.g. agate, diamonds... If none of the above are available, then dust which may have settled on the carpet can be used. If dust cannot be found then tayammum can be done on wet earth. If snow or ice is available, then you should try and melt it to do wudhoo. If this is not possible then tayammum can be done on the snow or ice. The things on which tayammum is done should be clean [tahir], it should not be usurped [ghasbi] or done on a place that is usurped. Another case that can be expressed here refers to doubts of a man about cleanness of these things. ‘Taharat law’ is a jurisprudential law which is got from traditions. It says; کل شیء لک طاهر حتی تعلم أنه قذر. “All things are clean unless you become sure about their impurity.” According to this law, a man shall not take attention to his unacceptable doubt about purity & impurity of the thing that he wants to perform Tayammum on it. It means it is considered clean unless he is sure about its impurity.

  16. Alsalamu Alaykum Salat is the best among all acts of worship. The rank of its importance in Islam is vivid, but the following tradition comes as an example to prove that; قَالَ رَسُولُ اللٌّهِ (ص): أَوَّلُ مَا افْتَرَضَ اللٌّهُ عَلى أُمَّتِي الصَّلَوَاتُ الْخَمْسُ وَ أَوَّلُ مَا يُرفَعُ مِنْ أَعْمَالِهِمْ الصَّلَوَاتُ الْخَمْسُ وَ أَوَّلُ مَا يُسْأَلُونَ عَـنْهُ الصَّلَوَاتُ الخمس. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his progeny) said: “The first thing that Allah made obligatory upon my Ummah was the five prayers; and the first thing from their acts of worship that shall be taken up will be the five prayers; and the first thing that they will be questioned about will be the five prayers.” [Kanzul `Ummal, Volume 7, Tradition 18859] At the glance, it is clear to realize that the case of Salat, which includes special parts & conditions, as one of obligatory acts of worship is exclusively for Muslims. It means its performing is useless effort for those who do not believe to Allah (swt) and the comprehensive religion that He has chosen for servants. Because in this way they do not receive and comprehend Salat’s advantages & its positive effects in their life. As it is understandable from the holy Quran 29:45, to restrain from indecent and wrongful conduct are as the influences of performing Salat by all of its parts and conditions. Therefore, to believe Allah (swt) and Islam are as fundamental expedients to receive positive effects of Salat on man’s heart.
  17. Salam Aleykum Brothers and Sisters in Islam! There seems to be a new Fatwa by Seyed Ayatollah Sistani! According to the past this was stated in the Q&A section of his (the emince) website Question: What is your ruling about cat hair on a person's dress during salat? Answer: Cat hair does not make prayers void. Cat Hair 2Question: Can I keep a cat in my house? Answer: There is no problem. Animals 3Question: Does cat hair affect your prayers. Answer: According to Grand Ayatollah Sistani, cat hair does not affect the prayers. Animals 4Question: What is the Islamic law about cat hair found on your clothes during prayer? Answer: Cat hair does not affect your prayer. Now lately looking into the Q&A section it got some changes! Question: What is your ruling about cat hair on a person's dress during salat? Answer: If there is one cat hair or there are two or three hairs on a person's body or clothe, his prayer is in order but if there are more than that, his prayer becomes void, as an obligatory precaution. Cat Hair 2Question: Can I keep a cat in my house? Answer: There is no problem. Animals 3Question: Does cat hair affect your prayers. Answer: According to Grand Ayatollah Sistani, cat hair does not affect the prayers. Now my question is what does this tell me now, cause it got me really confused when u look at question 1 and question 3, here. Is it now permissible to pray with cathair on your clothes or even on your prayer rugs or not. The problem is I am a follower of him and had persian cats over so many years. Now this is stated and obviously my cats didn't die. What shall I do? I will do whatever it takes to make my Salat being Inshallah accepted by Allah swt. but there must be something or an option without giving them away! If you could help me I would remember you in my supplications! Wa Salam Seyed Ashkan "WalAsr"
  18. Salamun Aleykum dear brothers and sisters, I wanted to ask a question about reciting loud- or silently during prayers. I'm not talking about the Qirat (reciting Surah al-Hamd and another Surah of the holy Quran). I want to know if I have to recite, while Ruku or Sajda, the recitations loud or silent (Subhana rabial Adhimi wa bihamdih & Subhana Rabi'al ala wa bi'Hamdih and the Tashahud and Taslim). My Marjaa Taqlid is Seyed Ayatullah Sistani. Excuse my english, but I'm not a native english speaker, nor am I living in the UK or USA ! Looking forward for your Answers! Wa Aleykum Salam WalAsr
  19. Shia Islam obviously interest me. I desire to take Shahada and start living correctly, the way Allah (swt) has ordained for man to live, but the main obstacle I have is the fact that the only Masjid for 100 miles is Sunni. What do I do, since Jummah is an obligation and bearing false witness is sinful?
  20. I would like to share these gems with my fellow brothers and sisters. 9 different forms of praying for desires (halal and legitimate desires of course). They are taken from The Prayers Almanac (Mafatih-al-Jinaan). See cover below: I will post each of the 9 seperately - apologies for the quality. iltemas-e-dua.
  21. JOINING SALAT

    SELAM ALEIKUM BROTHERS AND SISTERS COUPLE MONTHS AGO I TURNED TO ISLAM,ELHAMDULILLAH AND FOR SHORT TIME I FOLLOW SCHOOL OF AHLUL BAYT A.S I HAVE ONE QUESTION REGARDING SALAT HOW CAN I JOIN SALAT CAN I PRAY FOR EXAMPLE DHUHR AND ASR,ONE AFTER ANOTHER WITHOUT WAITING FOR SOME TIME CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO PRAY LIKE THIS MAY Allah REWARD YOU
  22. S/a, I had gone on a business trip/family vacation for a few days. I had my wife and 4 kids with me. Before my travel, I had firmly reinforced my intentions of praying all my prayers on time. This has previously been a weakness for me (praying during travel), but since my spirituality has increased over the last time I traveled, I thought I would fare well. Unfortunately, I failed! :-( My first day was okay, but the remainder 6 days were not! I have been trying to search the reasons for me failing so easily and trying to see what I can do for the future so I do not repeat this poor behavior. So far, I feel the following factors contributed to my failure: quiet place to pray (I was in a VERY busy city and it seemed like there was people everywhere) clean place to pray (issues of najis/unclean areas) "inconvenience" of doing wuddhu - both with dress attire and having to do wuddhu in public areas fear of persecution in this political climate (go figure how much I depend on God!) responsibility of 4 kids being extremely tired and exhausted at end of day (to at least do qadha) being outside the comfort of home (or place I am familiar with) etc Can anyone suggest what I can do to make my connection with God be as strong during my periods of travel? Thanks. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Ironically, I found this (below) in my email on my arrival (it has started helping me and hope it helps others too): Quranic Reflections 6:16. Āyat 66:8 – Turning to Allah (swt) يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا تُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَوْبَةً نَصُوحًا Yā ayyuhalladhīna āmanū tubū ilallāhi tawbatan nasūha. O you who believe, turn to Allah a sincere turning (Sūratut Tahrīm, No. 66, Āyat 8) This verse is an invitation to turn back to God after having turned away from Him. For all those who have become distracted from God, have disobeyed Him, and have not made Him the focus of their lives, God calls them back to Him. He asks them to repent for the distance they have created between themselves and their Lord. It should be a sincere repentance based on awe of Allah (swt) and a disappointment with the self. The word nasūhā implies sincerity as well as a firm determination. Its purity prevents a person from returning to the pollution of sin. Turning back to Allah has to have the following qualities: a) Feeling remorse with the heart at having turned away b) Apologizing and seeking forgiveness with the tongue c) Stopping sins and all that turns one away from God d) Intending to continue quality (c), above. When the world is full of distractions and the human being is so weak, it is very easy to turn away from God. This does not only mean committing sins. Sometimes it is possible that a believer is not disobedient. But he is apathetic in his obedience. His connection with Allah is weak despite performing his wājibāt (the required obligations). This distance from God weakens his resolve and creates emptiness in life which he seeks to fill with other things. Allah tells him to turn back to him, sincerely and strongly. Such a turning back is valuable and can transform his life. It is incredible that the human being in all his weakness and smallness turns away from His creator. God in all His greatness and majesty calls him back. Why? After having created him, having blessed him with so much, giving him guidance so he can turn to Him, God still is patient with Him. He does not give up on him and invites him to come to Him. Imam Ali (a) says: Be obedient to Allah and love His remembrance. Picture to yourself that you are running away while He is approaching you. He is calling you to His forgiveness and concealing your faults with his kindness while you are fleeing from him towards others. (Nahjul Balāgha, Sermon 220) In Du‘ā al Iftitāh, recited in the nights of Holy Ramadān, we say: [O Allah] I have not seen a more generous master, patient with a wretched slave, than You are with me. My Lord, You call me and I turn away from You, You show affection to me and I show hatred towards You, You display Your love for me and I do not respond, as though I am above You. But this does not prevent You from having mercy on me, being good to me, and favoring me, through Your Generosity and Nobility Such is the Merciful God we worship. As we enter the season of worship during the months of Rajab, Sha’ban and holy Ramadhan, turn back to God with sincerity and determination. Recite this verse to remind yourself of God’s invitation and accept the call to turn to Him. Life will become much more meaningful and enlightened.
  23. Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu- Hello brothers and sisters. I have a former coworker, an older Sindhi man, that sends me salaams every morning and calls me every week or so. We both worked at an Indo-Pak restaurant/grocery store together for awhile and still keep in touch. He's a sweet man, always saying he misses me in the little bit of English he knows. The only issue is that he was quite saddened when I began following the Ahl-ul-Bayt. There is a bit of a language barrier between us, so I was hoping that maybe some of you here might be of assistance. I've tried explaining that we have 5 prayers, but that even in Sunni references there is no error in joining dhuhr with asr and maghrib with isha. I'm not quite sure he understands what I'm saying, though. Also, like many Sunnis, he's pretty caught up with the "ya Ali" thing. I'm new to Shiism myself, so could hardly explain this kind of thing to him in English let alone Urdu or Sindhi. Anyway... I was looking for some help. It's not that I'm necessarily trying to guide him to Shiism, that's not my job. Allah, inshallah, will see to that. However, I'd like at least to be able to explain to him that he's misunderstanding Shiism from even the Sunni perspective. I realize that he is more than likely Hanafi, so no amount of ahadith will probably change his views on joining prayers at home. I should also mention that we are over 1200 miles away from each other, he in Louisiana and me in Michigan. You can reply here, or feel free to send me a message if you have any ideas. Jazakallah khayr Khoda hafiz
  24. Salam, I've done a cursory search for any topics on how long our prayers are or should be but have come up empty. I've seen some people mention hypothetical, such as 10min prayers but not for how many rakas. This is surprising to me how difficult it is to find such information since it is a pillar of our faith. I've seen hadiths mention Jafar Al Sadiq (as) in sujood long enough to say Subhana'Allah.. 300x! And similar narrations of the Prophet (saw) as well as his recitation of other verses or dua in certain positions at night. I don't have these narrations at hand but would like to gather them here for this discussion soon. I have a difficult time determining this, I'm sure I'll always feel the need to do more, I'd like to continue the struggle regardless of the bare minimum considering we have such great examples in the Prophet(saw) and the AhlBayt (as). Right now, I hold prayer for about 30-45 for a full 4 rakas including wudu. The mental pressure from work responsibilities (more like stigma created in my own mind) makes it hard to concentrate on the prayer which in turn makes the salat or namaz last much longer in order to make up for such breaks in concentration! Also for reference, I am a native English speaker as well as only recently starting to fulfill my obligations of the daily prayers (about a month or so) and even more recently starting Sunnah and Witr prayers ( a few days or so). By no means an example to hold up but rather quite the opposite, ignorant. I'm hoping to find hadiths of the Prophet and his family (sawwm), personal times such as averages, minimums and maximums to the best of your knowledge, and criteria for these durations, such as Sunnah vs fard, per rakah or as a whole, tired or awake, very spiritual vs not (we all have ups and downs), speaking etc... In the end, only God can measure and weigh these individually and as a whole but I'd like to have this information somewhere for our benefit. I'm recalling a verse saying we should pray until we find peace or die. That's a good place to start This would make a good app like fitbit actually! I am a programmer by trade so if any brothers or sisters would like this, I'd love to contribute for only the blessings of God regardless for your own profits.
  25. In the Study of Quran (referenced below), it says that one can omit Tasbihat al-Arba'h in the 3rd and 4th rakat and replace it with Sura Fatiha. Is this true?. "In Shiite law one is allowed to recite the Fātiḥah in the third and fourth cycles (rakat) or to recite, “Glory be to God, and praise be to God. There is no god but God, and God is great.” Nasr, Seyyed Hossein; Dagli, Caner K.; Dakake, Maria Massi; Lumbard, Joseph E.B.; Rustom, Mohammed (2015-11-17).
