    Nowadays some try and insist to introduce themselves as the forerunners of respect for women's rights, but the reality is that more than 14 centuries ago, when girls were buried alive and had no place in a family and society, Islam had given orders to cherish them. Prophet Mohammad (SAAW) said: "Your daughters are your best children." (Mustadrak al-Wasa’il, v.2, p.615)

    That's very sad. Autocorrect just corrected the phrase "love and appreciate" to "live and grapefruits". I'm still giggling. People are starting to stare.

    I advise the young boys to marry and advise them to consider taqwa (piety) and efaf (modesty/chastity) of girls in marriage, not their looks. [There are] too many girls without jamal (apparent beauty), but they are possessors of highest human values; seek and appreciate them. Seyyed Ali Khamenei In addition to the quote above, I remember hearing/reading a hadith from Prophet something along the following lines: Whoever marries a woman who isn't good looking just for her iman (faith), Allah will make her beautiful in his eyes.

    I have been ignoring the housechores for the past 2/3 weeks due to some issues, illnesses, social activities etc so this weekend I decided to give the house a thorough cleaning. I found a tupperware container at the back of a shelf in the kitchen. At first it seemed empty, but then I saw it had one forgotten cupcake in it,probably from the batch I made last month. It was hard and dry and a bit mouldy so I decided to leave it outside for the birds to eat........... Then I remembered your post so I examined it more closely, it did feel very hard, so I thought maybe the ants wouldn't eat it either..... next I threw it hard against the garbage can outside the kitchen......some bits came off but it didn't break lol.. It's in the trash now. I have left some bread out for the ants and birds instead On another note, why do the poor mothers get blamed for everything??? A couple of hours back, I was doing the laundry and just as I loaded and started the washing machine the TV cable stopped working.My daughter was watching cartoons and I heard her saying to mother in a appalled tone, " It's her , She started her washing and the TV stopped working."

    Well, SG's older brother ( it seems he is a party fellow who thinks SG is too young to wed ...to which SG retorted that older brother could get married, too ,and stop messing around with his girlfriend, an American with a name that would make Gaius' head hit the desk) AND the daughter of one of his dad's business acquaintances ( who it seems had designs on SG herself ) have both gone ballistic within the last 24 hours. This should be fun. On the positive side, DD likes to weed and garden to center herself when stress hits. My yard is looking good.

    Redo Namaaz?

    you are welcome brother , and yeah it is no problem to repeat your prayer in order to perfect it but keep in mind Allah swt knows your intention and most likely would give you full sawab just because of your beautiful intention , but like you said sometimes Satan tries to make us feel to obsessive and doubtful which is not good , anyway brother may Allah swt continue blessing you in the name of Muhammad and his pure progeny

    There're are two things you can do after each Salah: 1) Doing two Sajdah of Shokr after each prayer [It is advised by Imam Al-Mahdi(af)] 2) Do the Hazrat Zahra(sa)'s zikr: 34 times Allahu Akbar, 33 times AlhamdoliAllah, 33 times Sobhan Allah Doing these two after prayers will repair strengthen the Salah you have done. In fact they are Salah's reinforcements. Allah loves to see us answer his call for Salah when it is Azan, and if you do your Salah at that time even if you cannot concentrate, your Salah will be far better than a concentrated one which is done later. The early Salah is a master key.

    ...and on your 25th wedding anniversary you'll be sitting across from someone who has lost her looks and stopped bothering with the pretence of piety she started when you started hassling her about not being pious enough.

    Their is no problem in re-doing a prayer especially if you have doubt , but don't let it affect you too much because sometimes Satan tries to play mind games with you in order to create doubt even though you prayed properly , but yeah brother it is no problem if you want to repeat your salah you can especially if it affects your whole day negatively like you stated , may peace and blessings be with you ,

    If you want to calculate Ramadan using gregorian calender every year deduct about 10 days. Say if this year is June 5 the next year will be May 25 (approximately). The Islamic calender (Hijri calender) is a lunar one. The month is either 29 or 30 based on moon sighting. So 1-2 days just before Ramadan begins people go out trying to see the moon, if they could see it then the next day will be Ramadan, if not then the next day is not Ramadan and the day after is. The fasting starts from dawn until sunset. Now shias wait until the sun completely sits and that the sky is no more reddish at the east side, that is why shias break their fast about 10 minutes later than the sunnis do. When you are fasting you cannot eat, drink or have sexual entercourse. You are permitted to do so after sunset (obviously halal food and beverages and halal sexual relationships) Some sins do not ruin your fast during the day but they are sins anyway and you need to avoid them. I hope my answers were useful

    I'll marry a beautiful girl and force her to pious. Can't force someone to be beautiful

    The same would apply to a woman marrying a pious but perhaps less handsome man. It's the nature of love for spouse that he/she who has inner beauty will be beautiful when looked at deeply.

    To clarify the concept of the Imams knowing 'everything': Hadeeth #1: ٥ - قال: أخبرني الحسين بن أحمد بن المغيرة (١) قال: أخبرني أبو محمد حيدر بن محمد السمرقندي قال: أخبرني أبو عمرو محمد بن عمرو الكشي قال: حدثنا حمدويه بن نصير قال: حدثنا يعقوب بن يزيد، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن ابن المغيرة قال: كنت أنا ويحيى بن عبد الله بن الحسن عند أبي الحسن عليه السلام فقال له يحيى، جعلت فداك إنهم يزعمون أنك تعلم الغيب، فقال: سبحان الله، ضع يدك على رأسي فوالله ما بقيت شعرة فيه و [لا] في جسدي إلا قامت، ثم قال:لا والله ما هي إلا وراثة عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله He said: I have been informed by al-Husain b. Ahmad b. al-Mughairah, who reported from Abu Muhammad Haider b. Muhammad al-Samarqandi, who reported from Abu Amru Muhammad b. Amru al-Kashi, who reported from Hamdawayh b. Naseer, who reported from Ya'qoob b. Yazeed, who reported from Ibn Abi Umayr, who reported from Ibn al-Mughairah who said: Yahya b. Abdullah b. al-Hasan and I were with Abul Hasan, peace be upon him, and Yahya asked him: "May I be your ransom, they think that you have the knowledge of the unseen (Ilmul Ghaib)." He said: "Glory be to Allah! Place your hand over my head." When I did that, every hair in my head and on my body stood on its end. Then he said: "No, By Allah, it is nothing but what we have inherited from the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny)."

As regard knowledge of hidden things, that means knowledge of the Day of Judgement, and the things covered by Allah in the verse. Verily, Allah is He with Whom is the knowledge of the Hour... (Qur'an, 31:34) Therefore, Allah alone knows what is there in the wombs, whether male or female, ugly or handsome, generous or miserly, mischievous or pious, and who will be the fuel for Hell and who will be in the company of the Prophets in Paradise. This is the knowledge of the hidden things which is not known to anyone save Allah.

    Question to ADMINS

    This was a collective decision by the moderating team. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a vigilante demagogue, and I actually do my job properly, and with consultation. Accept the decision, and stop being a crybaby with a victim complex. Also you shouldn't bring up mod actions in public, you could have sent a polite PM inquiry instead. The explanation by @hameedeh above suffices.

    Not necessarily. Example: My mother was a terrible cook --about criminal sometimes. Like when individually wrapped cheese slices first came out, she'd put them on frying hamburgers and serve them with the melted plastic. Even forty years later, when those stories came up, my sister would get so mad her face purpled. Anyway, she use to make what my Dad called "poison pies". These had very hard crusts, too. One she made was so hard that it couldn't be cut. So getting puffy, Mom gave it for the dog to eat. Didn't get touched. Gave it to the cat, same thing. After a couple of days she threw it out for the birds to peck at. Nothing. It laid there for a week-10 days. Even rained on. No ants, either. Finally, she was outside and told me to throw it in the garbage. I picked it up and rapped my knuckles on it. That pie crust was still hard. Sounded like wood when l'd hit it. So, as teenagers do, l used it as a Frisbee. Mom started getting mad so as she was already upset, l knew to get it into the garbage can before she got mad. So, l Frisbeed-it , shooting for the garbage can. It was a ring shot, coming in inside the rim and rolled around the sides of the garbage can. Ratt-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah- ... until it slide on the bottom. Obviously, it was an empty garbage can. "Cool", l said. Then something like, "l gotta do that again." So as l went for the pie crust, Mom blew her stack. Just then, my GrandMother had walked over and asks, "What was that racket (slang for noise) in the garage?" So l told her. Grandmother just looked at my Mom. She wasn't the bit surprised at my story. Then, and for years after, l'd tell Mom she should sell it to the Army as a cheap substitute for armor plate.
