@notme How is your little brother? Praying for him. 

Thanks for the prayers, everyone. He's doing much better today. They are talking about letting him go home already.

My little nephew, now 2yrs & 3 months has had this habit --well, behavior-- since he could walk.

He walks in a circle saying 'Allah'. Four times in each revolution and evenly spaced in distance.

Then he stops, steps towards me and says, "bees-mill-mal" for bismillah.

Then l recite a sura after l started to recognize what "bees--" is.

He stands their moving his head left and right.

When l finish the sura, he starts in the circle again.

And the 'process' repeats.

He will do this four and five times at one time.

Kinda strange. Anyone else heard of this?

I just got back to basra... i cant believe it's all finished... 

The walk was just beautiful and i can't wait to do it again. I even met a few girls from Denmark and Sweden and talked to them.

I visited prophet hud, prophet saleh, Muslim ibn aqeel and mukhtar al thaqafi in kufa.

we reached najaf and I visited Imam Ali and was able to hug the dhareeh. I thought Imam Ali was hard... then when it came to Imam Hussain and al Abbas...

The day before arbaeen and arbaeen was just chaos in karbala, I went alone to visit Imam Hussain and al Abbas and was able to reach them both... I hugged them both and couldn't hold back my tears. I came out full of sweat and my shirt was filled with sweat. People push, squeeze, hit and it was even hard to breathe... one guy even passed out.

I just miss it all already...

MashaAllah bro, happy to hear from you! Hope all your duas are answered for you and your close ones!

It must be tough to visit the Harameyn in these days... as for the sweat, lol, be careful not to get sick, although I'm not sure if it is cold there.

Also, dont try to hold back those tears hahah! It's a blessing!

No, but it sounds very sweet. Does he follow the movement along when you pray? Is he old enough to start learning to recite adhan?

Anyone here ever offer Salat al-Ghufaylah after Maghrib? I just received a book detailing its method and was thinking about starting to do it.

He bobs his head to the rhythm while standing still.

He does follow Quran when his father reads it aloud. When he was a crawler he'd sit in front of the rehal and without prompting would turn the page exactly at the correct moment.

His mother is trying to get him to recite.

Most employers give between 8 and 11 paid holidays. Newer employees usually are allowed 5 sick/leave days, but after they've been with the company for a couple years that increases to 10 sick/leave days. Some but not all generous companies give even more days to employees who have been with them 10 years or more.

So yes, probably that includes state and national holidays, sick leave, and vacation. 

11 days for the whole year? Working or calendar?

I don't know the difference between working year and calendar year....

Usual Paid Holidays

  • New Year's Day,
  • Easter, 
  • Memorial Day,
  • Independence Day (4th of July),
  • Labor Day,
  • Thanksgiving Day,
  • Friday after Thanksgiving, and
  • Christmas Day.

Seems I've worked for some generous employers and overestimated what is typical.

I've been lucky. Most of the employers that I worked for full time gave all these holidays and a couple more. Not everyone is so fortunate. 

But then, some people don't mind working holidays.

The hard part now is finding the time to memorize the verses and dua of qunoot required for this salah. :(

Don't! Just get it photocopied and read from the paper or booklet or your smartphone until you know them by heart. Keep them ready (bookmarked etc) in your hand so you don't have to look around during namaz.

It's interesting how so many of the highly-recommended nawafil are at nighttime- al-Ghufaylah, the sitting nafl after Isha for us, Salat al-Witr popular after Isha with Sunnis, and of course Salat al-Layl. Makes you wonder how many blessings there are for the taking in this time period.

- Salat Al-Isha has its own nafila, like any other if the five daily prayers

- Salat Al-Ghufayla is not a nafila, and it is prayed between maghrib and isha. It is a distinctly mustahab salat on its own.

I'm not sure if you wrote your post claiming Al-Ghufayla is Isha's nafila but when I read it it sounded like that. So excuse me brother if I erred.

    • I wonder if it is enough for a person to believe in Islam until they die to be eternally in heaven eventually? I mean maybe a person would not believe if they were subject to torture but if they are not subject to torture they would believe. Must a Muslim believe no matter what or can they just rely on that if they believed in this life then they will someday enter heaven?

      I m 28yrs old .I started praying since last year. I was not knowing the importance of praying.My parents never told me to pray .They were only after my studies.I was busy in my life not knowing the real purpose if life  . I new nothing about what are the duties of muslim. Then Allah guided me at the age of 27 and i started going to masjid . Now i regret why was i so far away from my deen for so many years.Some questions kill me everyday ..Why didnt allahs guidance came early .? .I have to make up for so many prayers.i have asked Allah for forgiveness .Why i hav to still make up?. Is it too late age to get guided ?  Like i have done nothing no namaz no roza ..when my parents never told me about deen how am i responsible ? Now i ask Allah for forgiveness why i still have to make up for qada ?? If i make niyat of making qada after some years is it ok  or i hav to start praying qada ??When were u ppl guided to do these things ? I am feeling very bad..Whatever we learn from childhood imprints in heart ..i have learnt nothing..share ur views please
    • This is not possible because this is a breach of the basis of unity. When its decided that we are not going to discuss about our beliefs. Scholars can sit together and discuss all this but this can't be done in a public scenario.
    • Quran has not talked about the punishment of Apostaty in this world. But we have Sahih hadeeths from Imams. Quran doesn't tell everything explicitly.  When Imam Ali said that "all secrets and knowledge is condensed in Quran" then it means we can't access it but they can. So its better to be satisfied with the hadeetha and Marajes have done a lot of study to accept these hadeeth and Law. And you're not being killed for your belief but your action. Flee to any other Non Muslim country and you're free but if you harm Muslim society by your Apostasy then you are ought to be killed as you are a corrupter.
