Salam. I had noticed that Holy Qur'an website is down. I regret that. Perhaps they are doing some kind of maintenance and will be back up and running again soon.
May Allah accept all your amal in your mourning for Imam Hussein AS and his martyred family and companions AS.
Yes, Iran and Turkey have both near the kurdish-iraqi border exercised military drills. Haashd al Shaabi said they will not allow Kirkuk to secede to Kurdistan, so I imagine war...
Does anyone know what happened to corpus.quran.com? I heavily relied on it to help me get through my Quran studies and now I'm lost.
May Allah reward you all for your grief for Imam al-Husayn, peace be upon him.
I have came to a point where when I go to sleep and see an irregular dream, it reflects my old self that was attached to the wordily life. The moment when I wake up, suddenly such a self is gone and my self is directed toward Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى.
This shows that it is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى that directs the nafs by His mercy.
Salam, Sister. Why do you want to oppose your father and mother? When a man and woman get married, they are not just marrying themselves, their family members become related by marriage. The husband's parents should become the friends of the wife's parents. You are not just pushing your parents to let you marry a Sunni, you are pushing them to become friends with people they don't want to be friends with.
Do not do istikhara yourself. It won't help you. If you think the Istikhara is good, will you marry the Sunni without your father's permission? People will backbite you and say you left Islam, then they will backbite your parents and say they were bad people, look what happened to their daughter. You are not thinking properly.
