    • Look at how most businesses, private or corporations, political leaders, even some churches and religious organizations are run, the decisions that are made, who makes them, and who benefits (primarily) from these decisions, in a material sense. It is the top leadership. Those underneath them get the scraps from the table only. This is the norm, not the exception. The vast majority of leaders in the world today are sociopaths, if you want to call it that. They are out for their dunya, only. In Islam, these people are not qualified to be leaders, whether they are women or men. They take the leadership by force, and maintain it by force, i.e. threats and promises. If you look past the fluff, hype, and pr machine, that is what you will see.  A mumin person would not be comfortable or be able to function in a leadership position that is based on these things. That is why we live in the world we live in today, primarily. The important decisions are made by sociopaths, and the people whom Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) chose to be leaders, i.e. those who have those three qualities listed in my previous post, are locked out of leadership positions because they are not willing to use the tactics that the sociopaths use. If the world was run by momineen and mominat you would see a completely different, and better world than we have today.  The reason why we have the sociopaths as leaders is because the vast majority of the people accept their leadership and are satisfied with it, even though they are greatly suffering from it. Because Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gave us, as human beings, free will, that means that we get what we choose voluntarily. If we, as a society, choose these types of leaders and accept them, then we will get more of them. There is a famous hadith regarding this. Imam Ali((عليه السلام)) said, 'You should only hope from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), and only fear your own sins'. What it means to 'only hope from Allah(s.w.a)' is that you shouldn't look to anyone else to give you things, or look to them to solve your problems in your life or give you the rizq (sustenance). You should only ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for these things. If you start to hope in other human beings, then Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will give those people power over you, and they will then subjugate you to their will. Then  you will be in a difficult position, that you have put yourself into, i.e. by placing hope in other than Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), and those whom Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has designated as your leaders, i.e. the Imams of Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)).  You can compare it to someone who has only ever been in abusive relationships. They think it is normal getting hit and beaten up for any little wrong thing they do, or are perceived by the abuser to have done.  It is only when they happen to find someone who doesn't do this, that they then realize that this is not normal or right, and their mentality starts to change. If, before they experience a non abusive relationship, you try to tell them to get out and that they are in danger, they won't believe you, but rather will fight you and argue with you and defend their abuser. So this is the position we are in regarding leadership at the present moment.  As for women being forbidden from national leadership, I haven't seen anything that forbids it specifically. As long as they have those qualities (listed in my previous post) and are qualified. 
    • Allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa ali muhammadin wa ajjil faraja hum Rabbinee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqir Allahumma innee urreedu an atazawwaja faqaddir lee minan nisaa-I a’fihunna farjajan wa ah’fadh’ihunna lee fee nafsihaa wa awsa-i-hunna lee rizwan wa a-dhamahunna lee barakatan fee nafsihaa wa maaleee faqaddir lee minhaa waladan tayyiban tajaluhoo khalafan saalihan fee hayaatee wa ba`da mawtee. Oh Allah! I desire to marry, so arrange for me a woman from those who willingly abstain from what is unlawful and who safeguards her soul for my sake and because of her, not only my means of sustenance will increase, but also make there be in it abundance and also make it sure that she will give me a virtuous son, who will be a noble successor in my life and after my death. Ya Rabb, help me in finding a good wife in the same boat as me, who also understands and accepts me as I am. May she find peace and be filled with joy wherever she goes. May she have the strength and courage to find me, love me and live with me. May she find and be filled with much wisdom and clarity in her words and from her experiences. May she in her kindness, share these experiences with me and help us grow together. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Rabb, You alone know what is truly in my heart. You alone know my struggles and pain, Al-Wadud. I feel unbearably lonely and do not wish to incur Your displeasure by remaining unmarried, Al-'Aziz
    • That part of the hadith is unauthentic according to Shia scholars.
    • Allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa ali muhammadin wa ajjil faraja hum Rabbinee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqir Audhu billahi minash shaytanir rajeem دع كل الشتائم ضدي تُعاد سبعة أضعاف. Astaghfirillah Ya Allah, protect my sister from further harm and abuse Ya as-Sadiq, pray on my behalf, to Al-Haqq that my friend is guided to Islam and healed of her headaches. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Kadhim, pray to As-Sabur on my behalf that me and my brother in Islam are rewarded with a wife each and also that he can find the strength and to overcome his sadness. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Ridha, pray to Al-Wadud on my behalf that she gets peace of mind, verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Taqi, pray to Al Hakim on my behalf that my burden is lessened and I get the strength to take this deen and the sanctity of my life seriously. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) I ask nothing more than for our happiness and well-being. May we all be protected from the plague by Your permission
    • Salam, We need to ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to give us that abilities to be sinless.  Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)  made Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) sinless.  We need to show sincere effort that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will give His protection and strength to not sinning. We need to make 24 hours of our life as ibadah, not only 100 rakaat at night.  Not many has that abilities to perform 100 rakaat at night.  However, to make 24 of hour time as ibadah would be better and highly recommended.  So our walking, eating, working, sleeping ...all as ibadah or worship Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). When we worship...like we are not sinning. Wallahualam.
