Youth and Selection spouse: http://yusufezehra.com/files/Book/207.pdf Selection of Spouse: http://www.al-islam.org/islamic-marriage-syed-athar-husain-sh-rizvi/selection-spouse I think the most important criterion is piety or religiousness because everything else would come through them, such as good morals, beauty and intellect.

    I blame everyone from parents, teachers, managers to government officials that have not worked to prevent this from happening in the first place. Imam Khomeini said, whomever in their current job(be it being a mom, office worker government official) that does not have the return of Imam Mahdi as their goal in the work they are doin is a traitor to Islam. From noon to late night, all they show on TV is junk, 6am when everyone is either asleep or getting ready for work they decide to show program about imam mahdi for 15 minutes. In schools, all these books, only few pages cover what islamic values are, how imams behaved, who imam mahdi is, what they fought 8 years for. Just memorize 3 surahs from quran is all they get. Many of our reciters don't even bother to include values and ethics and duas into their seremons, saying hussein hussein hussein from dusk to dawn not knowing jack all what and who hussein is. Don't even get me started on many scholars...... Ayatollah Khameneis back is broken by all the mischiefs and lack of vision these officials have. If iranians as a nation, dont shape up and rinse themselves of scum, God won't hesitate twice to take away everything he has given them and give it to someone else. 1000 salawats to the south lebanese that listen to their leader which is far away and have the basira to work with the little they have.

    There is something so relieving about truth and proof. And what concerns nuking Tehran .. You think they aren't ready for that? I'm pretty sure that in the past 35 years of Islamic revolution a military expert brought up that 'what if' question, while being asked for a solution. Wasn't it Imam Khomeini who said 'let Iran burn to the ground for Islam to succeed' ??? Those are the kind of people they're dealing with .. Masha Allah. No threats or bullying will work there

    Some days after Imam Ali and Seyedeh Fatemeh ( سلام الله علیها ) marriage ,Prophet Mohammad asked Imam Ali that how Imam Ali saw Seyedeh Fatemeh ( سلام الله علیها ) ,In response Imam Ali described Seyedeh Fatemeh ( سلام الله علیها ) as " Good help for obeying God " We should look for a partner who has the quality to be that help .

    ^ It says: I am not a diplomat. I am a revolutionist. I speak bluntly and candidly. A diplomat says something while intending to say something else. I say what's on mind, with certainty and decisiveness. A negotiation is only meaningful if the side [you are negotiating with] proves their good intentions. If the side does not show good intentions -- and indeed you yourselves talk of "pressure complemented by negotiations"; well these two things are in conflict with one another! You want to point a gun at the Iranian nation and say: "come talk, or we'll shoot!" You do this to strike fear into the Iranian nation; but know that the Iranian nation will never fear you. 1391/11/19 (2013/2/7)

    مَا أَفَاءَ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْقُرَىٰ فَلِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ وَلِذِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ كَيْ لَا يَكُونَ دُولَةً بَيْنَ الْأَغْنِيَاءِ مِنْكُمْ ۚ وَمَا آتَاكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانْتَهُوا ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ Sahih International: And what Allah restored to His Messenger from the people of the towns - it is for Allah and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and orphans and the [stranded] traveler - so that it will not be a perpetual distribution among the rich from among you. And whatever the Messenger has given you - take; and what he has forbidden you - refrain from. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty. Pickthall: That which Allah giveth as spoil unto His messenger from the people of the townships, it is for Allah and His messenger and for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, that it become not a commodity between the rich among you. And whatsoever the messenger giveth you, take it. And whatsoever he forbiddeth, abstain (from it). And keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is stern in reprisal. Yusuf Ali: What Allah has bestowed on His Messenger (and taken away) from the people of the townships,- belongs to Allah,- to His Messenger and to kindred and orphans, the needy and the wayfarer; In order that it may not (merely) make a circuit between the wealthy among you. So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you. And fear Allah; for Allah is strict in Punishment. Shakir: Whatever Allah has restored to His Messenger from the people of the towns, it is for Allah and for the Messenger, and for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it may not be a thing taken by turns among the rich of you, and whatever the Messenger gives you, accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in retributing (evil): Muhammad Sarwar: Whatever God grants to His Messenger (out of the property) of the people of the towns, belongs to God, the Messenger, the kinsfolk, the orphans, the destitute and to those who may become needy while on a journey, so that it will not circulate only in the hands of rich ones among them. Take only what the Messenger gives to you and desist from what he forbids you. Have fear of God; God is severe in His retribution. Mohsin Khan: What Allah gave as booty (Fai') to His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from the people of the townships, - it is for Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), the kindred (of Messenger Muhammad SAW), the orphans, Al­Masakin (the poor), and the wayfarer, in order that it may not become a fortune used by the rich among you. And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it) , and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. Arberry: Whatsoever spoils of war God has given to His Messenger from the people of the cities belongs to God, and His Messenger, and the near kinsman, orphans, the needy and the traveller, so that it be not a thing taken in turns among the rich of you. Whatever the Messenger gives you, take; whatever he forbids you, give over. And fear God; surely God is terrible in retribution. In this verse, we see that whatever has been granted to the Messenger of the Fai, it belongs to Allah and his Messenger and Thul-Qurba, and the orphans, and the poor, and the wayfarer. Now here it's not saying what has been granted to believers so as to say "Thul-Qurba" refers to the kin of the believers. It refers obviously then to the kin of Mohammad. However, unlike the poor, the wayfarer, and the orphans, they do not have conditions. Now this would be a huge corruption of God and his religion, if normal kin of Messenger were given precedence and wealth over people simply for being related to the Nabi. So obviously the normal kin cannot be the meaning, and it has to refer to the special meaning of family given to Quran about the families of Prophets being chosen above the world such as the family of Ibrahim. Now just the portion that belongs to Allah, belongs to the Messenger, then that portion belongs to the near kin of Mohammad, but why? Obviously it is because they too are leaders of the nation, and are the family that is suppose to be the authority alongside Mohammad. This is the only logical meaning, because, it belongs to the head of state, and just like Harun was a leader along side Musa, so is Ali a leader alongside Mohammad. That is why the portion that belongs to the Allah and the Messenger, also belongs to the Thul-Qurba. Thul-Qurba cannot mean normal family as that would be nothing but short of corruption. The meaning is clear. It refers to the chosen family of Mohammad. The orphan ceases to get property when he stops being an orphan. The poor stops getting property when he stops being poor. The wayfarer is only entitled to it while he is a wayfarer as well. However, Thul-Qurba don't cease to be thul-Qurba. Showing they are always entitled to this property. This shows they are true successors of Mohammad (saw), as the wealth restored to the Messenger (saw) would be inherited by them. An interesting similar verse is the verse of Khums. Combined with this verse, we know khums of booty also belongs to thul-Qurba, showing they are to be the leaders of the nation. In 4:59, they are called the possessors of the Authority, and people take others as authorities, but here they are called those who possess kinship with Mohammad (saw) and this refers obviously to the chosen exalted meaning of kinship as opposed to the normal meaning of kinship or otherwise it would be corruption. And this is another clear verse in favor of Auli-Mohammad that Satan and his forces don't want people to see or ponder about, proving the Quran to be true as there is no reason there is dark forces upon the hearts of humanity wanting them not to realize the station of Auli-Mohammad (saw) in Quran other then the fact they are the true guides. God bless Mohammad and the family of Mohammad just as he blessed his chosen Ones, Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim, indeed he is Praiseworthy Majestic!

    A Close Look At Fadak!

    You said, "You are rushing your case onto a self-destructive path." This is exactly what you are doing with yourself by trying to protect and defend a man who got it wrong, by quoting a Hadith which wasn't heard and known by others and which has no basis and foundation with in the Quran. You said, "1. It makes a difference. Do you claim it as a gift or inheritance? Unless you are a dimwit or think I was born yesterday, it makes a huge deal of difference. If you ask, "how", then I say "because it further exposes you". And it did because to support your gift claim, you quoted Surah 17 verse 26 and then we found out that it was a Makki surah having nothing to do with Fadak." I'm not a dimwit but you might have been born yesterday by the way you are kicking around. Read with your eyes open. You claimed that I need to decide whether it was inheritance or a gift. No one made the gift story up. It is found in history books just like the inheritance story. This was my point which you are trying to ignore, You need to make your mind up whether the Prophet (pbuh) left any wealth behind in the shape of material form. What ever I put forward is automatically unreliable and za'eef. And what ever you put forward is reliable and strong. Nice one. What a way to go! You said, "2. Taking that narration at face value, Al-Mamun was not a Companion and his position will never override the position of Abu Bakr [ra], Umar [ra], Uthman [ra] and Imam Ali [ra]." Taking that narration at face value???? Are you're willing to take narrations at face value at will but lay down principals for me. You believe in the concept of Khilafath but pick and chose Khalifas as you desire. You label Khalifs and or their decisions right and wrong as you desire. Now who is being spineless here??? Who seems to be a dimwit here???? Lay down some principals and then discuss according to that sunshine! Not discuss as you wish and will. You said, "4. That narration contradicts Surah Al-Hashr verse 7, therefore, it holds no weight. Nice try though!" Does it??? Just as the Hadith Abu Bakar mentioned contradicts the Quran. Goes against the inheritance rules laid out in the Quran.

    Tinder, This World Has Changed

    What are on about? Go on the street and ask a 100 girls for a hook up and all 100 of them will slap you for your misbehaviour, the real world is full of humans who have morals equal or better than yours, so worry about yourself since there is a lot of falsehood you assume about westerners.

    Contemplation and studying is worship and the Muslims need more of this, including your mom and you. Just focus on improving your self and increasing in knowledge and personality Akhlaq etc. Forget about what people think, you don't need anyone to take you seriously so long as your lord is happy then you should be thankful and happy.

    Iran Bans 'evil Spiky Hair'

    روی الصدوق عن ابی‌عبدالله الصادق ـ علیه أفضل السلام ـ إن الله تعالی أوحی إلی بعض الانبیاء قل للمؤمنین لاتلبسوا ملابس أعدایی و لاتطعموا مطاعم أعدائی و لاتسلکوا مسالک أعدائی فتکونوا أعدائی. Narrated by Shaykh al-Saduq (ra) from Imam al-Sadiq (as): Allah swt revealed to one of his messengers: tell the believers do not wear the clothing similar to that of my enemies and do not eat the food similar to that of my enemies and do not behave the way my enemies behave, otherwise you shall become my enemy. Outer is the leader of the inner The distinction and the apparant line between believers' style and satanic style must remain. How to teach and train your teenage children in a western society? That's another issue and should not be mixed with the ideal condition we hope for.

    The narration is Weak (Da'eef) due to Muhammad b. Sinān. This narration is also Weak (Da'eef). In addition to other deficiencies, the main narrator is Majhool (unknown). These two narrations have been graded by Āṣif al-Muḥsinī [ha], in his work: Mashra`ah Bihār al-Anwār: Grading: Weak (not reliable). -->Mashra`ah Bihār al-Anwār, Vol. 1, pg. 436. Grading: Weak (not reliable). -->Mashra`ah Bihār al-Anwār, Vol. 1, pg. 462. In addition, both these narrations are not interpreted in a literal sense by the scholars who mentioned them. Nor do we endorse any attribute that limits Allāh. (salam) No brother. Kāmil al-Ziyārat is not considered authentic in terms of every chain present. The author yes, had made the claim that what he mentions is considered reliable. However, scholars have taken his word, only in authenticating his Shuyūkh (teachers). This includes al-Khūī [r.a] and other prominent scholars.

    Iran Bans 'evil Spiky Hair'

    I wish I had dyed my hair purple when I was young. I tell my kids they can wear their hair however they want and choose any decent style of clothing. Its just hair - it isn't permanent. So if this story is true, I think its ridiculous. But I'm not Iranian, so I really have no business commenting on laws that aren't mine.

    Is this a trick question? :P Maybe you are taking a class and the teacher wants to get to know you? :) [First, take notes about what you will say, and when you are ready with your notes, start your stopwatch in order to time it.] Say hello. Then define the word beginning. Next say that most -- if not all of us -- have experienced a new beginning some time during our past. Give examples of a new beginning that can relate to the age of your audience. (I have no idea who your audience is, but you could mention learning to drive a bicycle or drive a car, become a tutor, learn to swim, ice skating, get married, adopt a baby, write a book, start a company, examples are endless.) Move to the personal side and talk about a new beginning that you started to do, why you wanted to begin, and why it is important to you. Challenge your audience to take the first step to make a new beginning, to think about something that can be a benefit to them (or their family or society or mankind) and think about what they would need to do in order to accomplish it. [stop your stopwatch.] If it wasn't two minutes, talk slower. ;) Good luck!

    9. رسولُ اللّه صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيه وَ آلِهِ: مَن أحَبَّ أن يَكونَ أقوَى النّاسِ فلْيَتَوكَّلْ علَى اللّه تعالى.9. The Prophet SA said, ‘Whoever would like to be the strongest of people should place his trust in Allah, most High.’ [Jami` al-Akhbar, p. 321, no. 904]
