  1. Past hour
  2. I think you need a good sleep or time for rest. Please have it and spare me. Ok, and what you and your friends were doing here? Khutba e Fadak was the words of Al-Jahiz, this is Shia position? And should I refer you more threads? You're continue to throw allegations on me despite the fact that I have never claimed that I am a scholar nor I have claimed that I am presenting Shia position. Whatever has been mentioned is a fazeelat in my opinion.
  3. She likes figuring stuff out. Maybe she would enjoy mysteries. I wonder if she's old enough to enjoy The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. Are those even appealing to modern kids? And how to get there from stories of magic cats?
  4. Heh. She's 7. We're at the level of multiplication, division, and some fairly simple logic and algebra. Other than Al Jibra, I don't know if history has recorded who is responsible for those.
  5. Brother you quote these one liners like the scholars are not aware of them. Besides the full Hadith e kisa is not even part of Sheikh Qummi's Mafiteh. This is trying to go ahead of the scholars and I am sure you don't but is equating oneself to 'Aql e Qul'. So you are articulating a view based on your own Qiyas which is Haram for the full audience of shiachat and others outside, a view which is not even Shia, to many an impressionable younger brothers. Responsibility is a word that comes to mind. Besides I have told you of the three Shia scholarly views. Is this a new view outside the fold of shiaism. Plus you are not willing to seek guidance or ask a learned scholar, because the answer will fit your conjecture. Hazrat Abbas(عليه السلام) had a son named Fadl.
  6. sorry for the super late reply. isn't this the case most of the time? that the mutation(s) is detrimental to the life form's existence and rarely beneficial? Let alone getting that totally 'random' perfect beneficial mutation at the exact moment a creature needs it when the creature is subjected to a life-threatening change in the environment.. I mean sure if there is some sort of intelligence force directing such occurrences, but for random chance alone it is not plausible in the least. so far I still haven't come across a convincing mechanism outside of intelligence, and random chance will never be a convincing mechanism...
  7. Have you tried audiobooks? Or even more cheaply good public service radio broadcasters who read stories (long ones). In my humble opinion they're a good way of getting kids to go through a similar cognitive process to reading I.e. seeing the pictures in their heads (something which television does not help them to practice). In my limited sample of a few kids, the one difference between those who saw the pictures and those who did not is that kids in the former group were more interested in reading. Another way of developing this habit is to have them read a short rich descriptive tract, and then draw/paint what they see. The other issue is that the initial stimulus to read can simply come from the desire to read something in which there is a prior interest, e.g. if there is a book connected with a tv show or movie. Once the barrier is broken they can be moved onto something more worthwhile. It does not matter if the initial books are a bit trashy as long as the direction of travel is ok. I am attaching a reading list that one of the United Kingdom fee-paying schools that Maryam could have gone to, gave us. I think it's within the top 20 in the United Kingdom, so not a bad standard. The list is for 10-year-olds, but gives you an idea of trajectory. SHHS Reading List 10 year olds.pdf
  8. Today
  9. What would she really like to read about? Maybe try through that? Or looking at what exactly makes her like math and then in a way letting her see she can find that too in reading https://www.al-Islam.org/library/kids-corner
  10. https://www.shiatv.net/video/1573063302 https://www.shiatv.net/video/372423213 https://www.shiatv.net/video/894a0b029ac115da88f8
  11. You could also give her an encyclopedia (children's ones), that have a lot of interesting information about the universe and history. Or maybe get her started on a Guinness World Records book and then slowly ease her into novels and more creative works that would help develop her creativity.
  12. Who said anything about Daesh ? Totally offtopic
  13. Are you looking for a historical context? I would recommend you see each verse not only in their historical context but it’s relevance today, here and now. Ask yourself, “what does this verse mean for me?” And there’s is no one right answer but rather levels of meanings that will be disclosed to you in accordance to the level of your inner realization or receptivity. Being firm against the Kafirun (literally “those who cover up” or conceal the Real or the Truth) has relevance to us us here and now because we need to be increasingly and vigilantly firm against all sorts of God-lessness of the Modern age... I.e. the attention sucking devices, technologies, mindless entertainment, ideologies (social and political), and against being pushed towards pursuing pleasure and excessivenes in food, sexuality and instant gratification.
  14. She loves math so she would be interested in knowing personalities behind it. If she's doing Pythagoras then she would be happy to know when, where and how Pythagoras contribute. This is to cultivate reading habit.
  15. Also welcome; simple tools to do it myself. Tips to be able to make this cost efficient, etc. Anything related which you think might be helpful is welcome.
  16. I don’t actually see the stubbornness in your posts in which you talk about. I think other people on this site are way more stubborn, to be honest.
  17. Is it every non-Muslim? Or are the people of the book considered believers? Who are disbelievers?
  18. PressTV got their accounts blocked, Muslims being blamed for attacks etc. etc. Great opportunities to make a simple and easy change at a local level. Is some or do you know someone able to make nice looking flyers (on the computer)? Connect or tag them, please. For example; someone who you know is good with computers, editing skills etc. If it is worth a try, consider please. Also for future projects/actions.
  19. Yes. That should suffice. “May God curse the enemies of the Ahl Bayt”. But right now you are focusing too much on the historical repercussions of tabarra which has been emphasized by those who have reduced religion to a cult of personality worship bereft of the Divine Presence. How about we see it more from a God centered point of view where in the Qur'an (Surah al-Saba) God commands us to say: Say, "Who provides for you from the heavens and the Earth?" Say, " Allah . And indeed, we or you are either upon guidance or in clear error." Say, "You will not be asked about what we committed, and we will not be asked about what you do. "Say, "Our Lord will bring us together; then He will judge between us in truth. And He is the Knowing Judge."
  20. If you understand Urdu, then the video below should be an enjoyable watch. I highly recommend you and anyone else who has questions related to the matter of Tabarra to watch it: If you don’t understand Urdu then there are English subtitles, but obviously subtitles won’t do justice... For those who don’t know this speaker, he’s extremely popular in the Urdu speaking community and travels all around the world throughout the year to give lectures. He was also and probably still is, active in the hawza in London. He’s actually a legend in my opinion. Always delivers very high quality lectures in an extremely skilled and pleasing to hear way.
  21. It is somewhat complicated... According to most, it is mandatory to follow the most A'lam (learned) Marja, which is usually determined by the subjective opinion of mulitple mujtahid. There are ways to help you narrow your choice down though. Search on Shiachat and you will find a lot of discussion. NOTE: if you see a ruling that says "recommended precaution" do not confuse this with "obligatory precaution"... these are not the same thing. If something is "recommended precaution" you can choose to totally disregard/ignore this ruling, and you should not refer to another marja's ruling. NOTE: do not mix up "recommended precaution" with "recommended". "Recommended" simply means that the act is Mustahhab (you will gain rewards in the afterlife for doing this act... I.e. it's not mandatory but it is recommended) TLDR; Unless you have the qualifications/authority to follow your own rulings, then you must always follow what your Marja says. Edit: You can gain knowledge from anyone... you make taqlid in fiqh (verdicts), while making taqlid in beliefs is haram. Edit 2: Check this video out if you're still confused: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8bQXU1XSJI&ab_channel=IslamicPulse
  22. I'm not sure how many bullies admit their flaws and work to rectify them, but I laughed when I saw that several people in this thread agreed with my self-critique. May Allah give us islaH.
  23. From what I understood, the Warsh is still in use in the Western parts of Africa. As far as I know there is nada English. You can correct me at any point. This link may help. http://http://www.assabile.com/Qur'an/collections/all/warsh-a-n-nafi/Qur'an/collections/all/warsh-a-n-nafi
  24. Salam the only people that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was harsh against them were infidels in battlefields & later people that attacked to Lady Fatima (sa) & Ummayids & after him our Imams were fighting with Abbasids
  25. What is meant by “harsh against the disbelievers” for the following verse? Is it referring to non-Muslims in general or those described in previous verses as preventing entry to the sacred mosque (I’m kinda new to contextualising the Qur'an)? [Shakir 48:29] Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are firm of heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among themselves; you will see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking grace from Allah and pleasure; their marks are in their faces because of the effect of prostration Jazakallah Khayr
  26. My judgement is just based on your words but most of time words are showing a percentage of intention of people & I don’t see hate from Iranians or Persians in it ,I read many Wahhabi comments that show how much they hate Shias & Iranians
