Assalamualykum

I was wondering if anyone lives, or knows of a shia community in Des Moines, Iowa as I will be moving there to attend a University. Also, I was wondering if there are zabiha halal stores around for groceries and meat.

Thank You very much in advance.

Salam alaykum,

My parents live in Cedar Rapids and have mentioned there being a halal meat source there (although they aren't muslim). Des Moines is maybe 2 hours or so from Cedar Rapids? I have no idea if there are Shia around there. I would assume there would be Muslims at least around Iowa State University and University of Iowa, attending school... I'm Shia but am only in Iowa for holidays... I wish I knew Shias where I live! We're all so spread out... :squeez:

Salam alikum, I recently moved to Cedar Rapids, just a week ago, with my wife and children...
any Shia is more than welcomed to reach out to us... 
We'll have dinner at our place, and watch some youtube Shia lectures :)
Inshallah.

    • I just wanted to mention something to prevent confusion. This is OK only if he is engaged  BY RELIGION. Otherwise, it's Haram and not acceptable.
    • Specifically porn is destructive in future marital relations. I honestly feel ashamed how some people believe in these false stereotypes found in the porn industry, where both men and women have exaggerated features that have little to do with normality. They believe in these stereotypes and then expect them in their partners, to the point they even dare to bring the subject in public. And I prefer to stop it here because it is embarassing.
    • Condolences on the shahadat of Imam Hassan Mujtaba AS. Imam Hasan (a.s.) said: Translation I wonder about those who think about their body’s food, but do not think about their soul’s food. They keep undesirable food away from their belly, but fill up their heart with destructive subjects.1 Brief Description Our people are usually quite careful with their food and do not start eating unless they know what it is. They avoid anything that looks doubtful and some go to great lengths to ensure that the body receives good, clean, healthy diet. Yet, when it comes to the food for the soul, these same individuals will throw caution to the winds. With eyes closed, unaware of the reality, they would have no hesitation in pouring down any mental food into their soul. They harm their souls by accepting without question the speeches of unsuitable friends, misleading press reports and suspicious or poisonous propagation, and this is very surprising. 1. Safinat’ul-Bihar 84, article of taste.
