  1. I know passing wind/breaking wind breaks wudu, does this include burping? also, is it bad to hold in your farts to avoid breaking wudu?
  2. Hey guys! So, I've been driving myself nuts over the correct way of performing wudu. I've seen tons of videos on YouTube on how to perform Shia wudu but it seems like everyone's doing it slightly differently from each other which is making me super confused and unsure over what's actually correct and not. I've always done it the way my parents taught me which is like this: - Wash face from hairline and down twice. - pour water in my right hand, pour that water into my left hand and then wash my right arm from the elbow down to the fingertips twice. (And here's where it gets tricky) - pour water in my right hand and then, without touching my skin, pour that water over my left arm as many times as I want until I feel like my left arm is wet enough to start wiping from elbow down to the fingertips. Once I've touched the arm with my hand, I can't pour anymore water on it. (I do this only once). - then I use the remaining water on my hands to wipe the top of my head once. - then I wipe my feet up to the ankles once. What are your thoughts on the way I perform the wudu? What's been making me nervous is the way I do with the left arm cause I haven't seen anyone else do it like that. Anyone here that does something similar or the same way I do it? And why does it seem like everyone's doing it differently from each other? What's the absolute correct way to perform the wudu in detail? How important is it to perform the wudu the exact way it was meant to be done? I know I'm asking a lot of questions but I'd be so happy if I could get some explanations to help sort things out. Thanks!
  3. Assalamualaikum, I will be traveling to the Middle East in a couple weeks in shaa Allah, and I have a bunch of questions regarding prayer. Keep in mind I am a relatively new convert, so please be patient with me. 1) I read that all prayers during travel are 2 rakat. What counts as "travel"? I will be traveling for around 14 days, going in between cities, staying a couple nights in each and going around either to nearby cities or exploring the city I am staying in each day. Is "travel" simply the plane rides and bus rides, or the whole trip, since I am not staying in the same place the whole time? 2) Part of my trip will be in Jerusalem, and I plan to pray at Al Aqsa in shaa Allah. I was warned by a Palestinian friend of mine, however, that it is very dangerous if I pray like a Shia there and I should do taqiyyah and perform my prayers like a Sunni. Given recent events, it is even more dangerous to be praying noticeable differently at Al Aqsa, as people might suspect me to be a Zionist actor and become violent. Do I have to make up prayers later that are performed in taqiyyah? 3) Just in general, what are the rulings on praying salat at a Sunni mosque with Sunnis? The nearest Shia mosque to me is 3 hours away, and I cannot drive. The nearest Sunni mosque is 15 minutes by bus. If I prayed Jummah there, would I follow the imam or do it the way we do it? Would I stand in line with all of the others, or just quietly do my own thing in the back? Background note, I am a woman, so since congregational Jummah prayers are not obligatory upon me, I have not been going to the mosque. 4) If I am in a situation where I am unable to find pure water or dust for wudu, should I pray anyway, or would they not count? Is impure water better than nothing? 5) What's up with sutrahs? Do we use those anymore, or does a prayer rug essentially outline the space necessary for salah? JazakAllah khair and thank you for your patience with me.

    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!

    Wudu Water

    Salaam, When doing wudu, do you let the water run while washing different parts or turn off the faucet every time and turn it on? I will confess that I leave the water running but I don't turn the faucet fully on either. Any rulings on this?
  6. 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
  7. So i have two questions, first regarding istibra and second regarding masah. Here goes.. 76. If a person performs Istibra, and also performs Wudhu, and if after Wudhu he sees a liquid discharged, of which he knows that it is either urine or semen, it will be obligatory upon him to do Ghusl, together with Wudhu. But if he had not done Wudh u after Istibra, then Wudhu alone will be sufficient. I did'nt quite understand this law, what does this mean. Why is ghusl required in the above condition?? Why can't i just wash my privies and do wudhu again?? And the second question. i was searching about wudu and i saw some people saying (on shiachat) that masah water should not mix with washing water. For example, if i do masah of head then i should stop few cm before hairline. But i've seen many videos and no one has ever discussed this thing, some even went to the hairline (when doing masah). So is this thing mustahab or wajib? Does it render wudu void (if water mixes) ?? How exactly can i stop water of masah from flowing into water of washing (because a drop or two may flow to the face). Please help me because i have to do wudu atleast 3 times due to this "mixing of water" issue. Also cite any reference or hadith and saying of Imam about this issue. Thanks in advance.
  8. Salam, I was hoping to get some advice from the men out there who are attending university or work for long durations in the day. I am currently at university, for majority of the day (maybe 8 to 10 hours), which requires me to use the toilet (allot). However, they are public toilets and are usually quite dirty, so I usually urinate while standing up for convenience and cleanliness. Obviously, that is not permitted, and it's preventing me from performing prayer during the day, so I usually have to combine them when I reach home. Is there a solution to this? Keep in mind that cleaning the seat with water and toilet paper takes about 5 to 10 minutes which is largely impractical when you go to the toilet more than 6 to 8 times a day. Also, the closest most is a 5 minute walk so it is also a huge inconvenience to walk there every time. Please let me know if you've overcome this issue. Jazakum Allah Khear
  9. I was just addicted to masturbation. After getting rid of it, by mistake i masturbated yesterday. My question is: after doing this i wore clean clothes...without ghusl...so after ghusl can i wear the same clothes or the clothes are pak.???
  10. Hi everyone. I hope you guys are safe and well. I would love for an Shias to help me with the salah. I also want to learn the Shia wudu as well. I am a female, so I would like to learn the ghusl i need to perform in the shower after my period is finished. I have been trying to look online, but i have found resources made by Muslims that are making false versions of Shia salah. I used to know how to pray the Shia way. But I went to a Sunni school where I was forced and abused to learn there style. Now I have forgotten, and at the time i was to terrified to talk to my parents about this. I still am... No matter what, i will never have the courage to tell my parents. They are not the forgiving type or the understanding type either. Please.... I just want to know everyone right away again. I cannot stand this wait any longer. If it helps, I am Southern Iraqi.

    Question about Wudu

    Salam! I have a question about wudu. My partner is helping me to learn my prayers in Arabic and yesterday he told me that when I make wudu I must wash my private areas when making wudu if I have been to the toilet or just passed gas. I already wash after using the toilet so I don't see why I would need to do that again during wudu if I already do it. I also have never heard that you must wash those areas if you've just passed gas since nothing comes out... Can someone clear this up for me? I'm confused.

    To Wipe or To Wash

    As-Salam 'Alaikum, Salat is the first of the a'mal that will be asked about on the Day of al-Qiyamah. Whoever fails it, his doom becomes certain. Once the salat falls, no more questions will be asked about the other a'mal. They all fall with the salat. Meanwhile, salat itself cannot stand except with a correct wudu. Therefore, one may safely state that wudu is one of the keys to Paradise, among the a'mal. If one does not do it correctly, he literally has no chance of Paradise - except where Allah uses His Prerogative of Mercy. We see that Sunnis and Shi'ah differ on the correct method of wudu. This clearly is a very serious issue. One's salvation in the Hereafter hangs on it. In particular, Sunnis and Shi'ah disagree about whether the feet should be washed in the wudu or wiped. Well, as Muslims, whenever we dispute about any matter, our first point of reference is the Qur'an. What does the Qur'an say? Does it command the believers to wash their feet? Or does it command them to wipe their feet? This is the Verse of Wudu in the Book of Allah: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا قُمْتُمْ إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ فَاغْسِلُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ وَأَيْدِيَكُمْ إِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ وَامْسَحُوا بِرُءُوسِكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُمْ إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ And this is a "Literal (Word by Word)" translation given by the Sunni website, IslamAwakened: O you who believe! When you stand up for the prayer, then wash your faces and your hands till the elbows and wipe your heads and your feet till the ankles. It seems they got their "Literal (Word by Word)" translation from this neutral source, University of Leeds, though. Other translators who have agreed with this include: O you who believe! when you rise up to prayer, wash your faces and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles. (Shakir) O those who believed! When you stood up for the formal prayer, then, wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows and wipe your heads and your feet up to the ankles. [Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar] O you who believe, if you rise to attend the contact-method, then wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles. [The Monotheist Group 2011 Edition] O you who have faith! When you stand up for prayer, wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe a part of your heads and your feet, up to the ankles. [Ali Quli Qara'i] O you who believe! When you rise up to prayer wash your faces, and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe your heads, and your feet down to the ankles. [Hamid S Aziz] Believers, when you are about to pray, wash your face and your hands along with the elbows and wipe your head and your feet to the ankles. [Muhammad Sarwar] O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! When you congregate for Salat, wash your faces and your forearms, hands to the elbows. Lightly rub you heads and your feet to the ankles. [Shabbir Ahmed] O you who believe! When you rise to pray, wash your faces and your hands and arms to the elbows, and wipe your heads, and your feet to the ankles. [Talal A. Itani (new translation)] O you who believe, when you prepare for prayer, wash your faces, hands and arms to the elbows, wipe your heads and feet to the ankles. [Bilal Muhammad (2003 Edition)] You, you those who believed, if you started/got up to the prayers, so wash with water your faces, and your hands to the elbows, and rub/wipe with your heads and your feet to the two joints/ankle bones. [Muhammad Ahmed - Samira] O believers, when you stand up to pray wash your faces, and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe your heads, and your feet up to the ankles. [Arthur John Arberry] O ye who believe! when ye rise up to prayer wash your faces, and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe - your heads, and your feet down to the ankles. [Edward Henry Palmer] O true believers, when ye prepare your selves to pray, wash your faces, and your hands unto the elbows; and rub your heads, and your feet unto the ancles. [George Sale] O Believers! when ye address yourselves to prayer, wash your faces, and your hands up to the elbow, and wipe your heads, and your feet to the ankles. [John Medows Rodwell] Believers, when you rise to pray wash your faces and your hands as far as the elbow, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankle. [N J Dawood (draft)] O'you who have Faith! when you stand up for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe a part of your heads and your feet up to the ankles. [Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli] O you who believe! When you get up for prayer, wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet up to the ankles. [Muhammad Shafi] The non-Muslim translations have been given in blue, and it is interesting that they all unanimously translate the ayah as the Shi'ah do. As for Sunnis, they are generally confused about the verse. Some of them translate as the Shi'ah do. Some of them put the word "wash" in brackets before "your legs" and some of them put it there without those brackets! In any case, the Qur'an apparently commands the believers to wipe their feet during their wudu. therefore, the salats of all those who wash their feet are defective.
  13. Salam Alaikoum, I would like to give a brief history on my situation before seeking assistance. I am a shi'i muslim born, but my parents weren't practicing muslims and didn't teach me the steps for prayers. We were living in a sunni muslim country early in my life. I learned the steps for prayers the sunni way back then. However, in my early teen age year, we moved to another country with no islamic teaching in school. All these things, in addition to laziness by me, has led me to not pray. So currently I am in my mid 20s and I decided to start praying. Most guides state extra optional things to do before and during prayers. I don't wish to do the extra optional things at this stage. So my understanding is that these are the compulsory steps. Ghusl: 1- Immerse whole body in water (Does a bath in the bathroom work?) OR 1- clean every najasat (semen) 2- Wash head to neck 3- Wash right side of body from shoulder to foot 4- Wash left side of body from shoulder to foot Wudu: 1- Niyya: I am seeking closeness to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì 2- Wash face completely from forehead to chin using right hand 3- Wash right arm completely from elbow to finger-tips using left hand 4- Wash left arm completely from elbow to finger-tips using right hand Don't use extra water after here 5- Use right hand to wash from the top of your head till just before forehead 6- Use right hand to wash your right foot from toe-tips till ankle 7- Use left hand to wash your left foot from toe-tips till ankle Does any marjeh allow shower without wudu? Prayer: I- Rakah 1: 1- Niyya: I offer this [prayer-name] prayer [number-of-rak3at] rak3at seeking closeness to Allah 2- Stand. Lift hand to ear. AllahuAkbar 3- Arms down say Fatiha then Ikhlas 4- AllahuAkbar 5- Ruku3. Subahana rabiya al 3azeem wa bihamdih 6- Stand. Sami3a Allah li man hamida. AllahuAkbar 7- Sujud. Subhana rabiya al A3la wa bihamdih 8- Sit. AllahuAkbar 9- Repeat 7 and 8 II: Rakah 2: 1- Repeat step 2-9 from Rakah 1 2- Tashahud 3- In Fajr only: Finishing III: Rakah 3: 1- Repeat step 2-9 from Rakah 1 but in step 3 no Ikhlas. 2- In Maghrib only: Tashahud + Finishing IV: Rakah 4: 1- Repeat step 2-9 from Rakah 1 but in step 3 no Ikhlas. 2- Tashahud + Finishing #Tashahud: 1- Ashhadu ana la illaha ila Allah wahdahoo la sharika lahoo. 2- Ashhdu ana mohamadan abduhu wa Rasoolahu. 3- Allahuma Salli 3ala Mohamad w 3ala alee Mohamad. #Finishing: 1- Assalamu 3alayka ayuhu al nabiyo wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh 2- Assalamu 3alayna wa 3ala 3ibadi Allah saleheen 3- Assalamu Alaykom wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu If i want to do missed prayers, do I have to say anything extra? Also do I have to do the missed prayer at the same timeslot of the actual prayer or at anytime? I would like from anyone to check if there is any mistake in them and answer the extra questions I have asked. Please make sure that I didn't miss any compulsory oral or physical action. Thank you

  15. Assalaamu Alaikum. How to increase the Thawab / Hasnat / rewards of Salah , Saom, Charity , Ablution and othet Ibadats ?

Hope you find the video to be beneficial, Inshallah. As always, please do like and subscribe to our channel. Wasalam, KautharWaNahr
  17. Assalamun aleykum brothers and sisters ^_^ First of all, I newly discovered this forum and i found it really helpful. I reverted to Shia islam newly, after making alot of research in 4 years, mainly with the help from my shia-muslim friends and sometimes from books. I were born as sunni muslim, but i started to gain more belief for Shia islamic teaching and point of views. The reason i wanted to be a part of this forum, is because im interessted to learn more by asking. By this, i can get more explainations from different people in this forum instead of asking 1 or 2 persons. So my first question is about praying (namaz), how do i pray in the shia way? As i have found out from my research (in this case, mainly from the internet), there is quite many differences between shia and sunni way to pray. I found some links regarding to this and wanted to share them with you all, and get some views on which one that are right or wrong, and maybe give some corrections. Its hard when the parents are not following the same path so they can teach the children. My question may be posted before, but i wanted from some of you to confirm that these links are correct. http://al-rida.net/index.php/islam/prayer http://www.scribd.com/doc/17105107/Salat-Step-by-Step-The-Shia-Way- http://www.revertmuslims.com/sala.html http://www.scribd.com/doc/48485944/Kashaful-Salat-English-Translation And i also wanted a "guide" to ablution (wudu and ghusl) . The last link shows a book where wudu is also described. If any of you sisters and brothers would help me, i would be really pleased. May Allah be with you all!
