[FAQ] Contacting other Members

Recommended Posts

Once you attain advanced member status by posting on the forum 25 times, you have the ability to send a private message, or "PM", to other members on the forum. To PM, go to the user's profile you wish to contact and click on the "Message" button.


Place a subject describing the general topic your message covers and then your message in the message textbox. Click on the Send button and your message is on its way. Once you send the message, patiently wait (since sabr is crucial in Islam). When the recipient of your message responds, you will receive a notification on the small envelope or mail icon near your username at the top of the homepage, which you can then click to receive your message. Have fun contacting members on the forum! Remember to be polite and maintain Islamic conduct!

Insults made against other members on this board are not tolerated. If someone sends you a private message (PM) that is inappropriate (insulting, asking for mutah, threatening, using profanity, etc), please click on the Report button in that message. See the image of a PM below and where the Report button is located, circled in red:

♦ After you click the Report button, a box opens up where you can explain what the problem is (insult, asking for mutah, threatening, using profanity, etc.), then click the "Submit Report" button. A Moderator or Administrator will contact you as soon as they can.

♦ Another way to report an inappropriate private message (PM) is to click on the "invite a member" icon to add a Team member to the PM. See the "invite a member" icon on the image above which is circled in green

These are the Team members (Staff) that can be invited to your PM:

    • Salam. If the person lives in another country and has the wish to be buried in Iraq, there are governmental regulations about shipping a person's remains. The country where that person lives has laws that need to be followed. For example, the person who died would need a medical statement that the body is not contagious. The casket would need to be inside a lead box that would not leak, then placed inside a wooden crate which is nailed shut and has special seals that show if there was tampering or opening. The funeral home would need government permission to transport the body by airline and not all airlines provide that service. The licensed funeral home worker would need to drive the prepared package with the person's remains to the licensed airline and make sure that the remains were placed on the airplane. At the arrival in the airport in Iraq, the person's remains would be in the customs area and the customs workers would wait for the person who would need to personally claim the body and sign documents that the body was picked up. Because the whole thing is very heavy and would not fit inside an ambulance or hearse, the wooden crate would need to be opened which means workers or relatives of the deceased would need to use crowbars to remove it. After lifting the lead box into the vehicle, the deceased would need to be transported to the cemetery location where the bodies are washed. The cemetery would take care of everything but of course the price will depend on the location of the cemetery. The most expensive part of the international burial is the western country (funeral home, trip to airport, airline shipping) and could reach $15,000. The price of the cemetery plot, washing the body, wrapping the body in kaffan, is a separate price. The temporary grave marker with the name written in chalk on it is probably free, but the grave stone with the name carved on it would be a separate price. This does not answer your question of whether someone can be buried in Iraq, but I just want you to know that the person needs to save his money if he has such a wish. May Allah SWT grant all halal wishes.  
    • That is the crux of the issue here brother. I am trying to understand what/who determines which parts to accept and which parts to reject.
    • Or this question: Can I use body wash to wash my hair?  
    • There isn't even unity among shias. You call non-twelver Shias heretics. Do you think you are ready to unity with Sunnis?
    • I suppose it all depends on the person. But yes, if someone took a literalist approach and did believe that the many strories of scripture were all true in a black and white way, and they simultaneously were consistent in believing all things they viewed as miracles, then yes they would believe both in the literal story of Adam and Eve, and the literal story of the virgin birth.
