    Fasting (Roza)

    If you travel for 22km past your city’s borderline, it becomes permissible to break your fast. Don’t worry you do not need to pay kaffaarah by fasting 60 days, that’s only for when you break your fast without travelling or without a valid excuse. Your only duty is to perform its qada before the next following month of Ramadan begins.

  12. Salaam, There was a death in my distant family recently. I wanted to verify some rites to be performed and looked on SC but couldn't find anything in a consolidated thread. I did find this booklet on Al-Islam.org so adding it here as a link and PDF as well. I hope and pray none of us have to use it but in case we do, here it is. https://www.al-islam.org/burial-rituals-muhammadhusein-kermali Burial Rituals .pdf

  15. ngos have become business ventures. 90% of donations goes to employees and 10% go to actual relief.. there are so many ngos now in Lebanon and I havee worked with the big ones that I won't name.. they are corrupt as hell.. they even pick which areas to help depending on their political views.. for example a giant ngo is pouring money into projects in the salafi areas in lebanon.. ive seen this first hand. they do this most probably knowing that this money will go into buying weapons. and if i name the ngos you will be surprised. @hasanhh @Wahdat

  16. In Misbah al-mutahajjid, al-Shaykh al-Tusi narrated that Imam al-Sajjad (a) recited this Salawat every day of Sha'ban toward the sunset and also at midnight. Other books such as Iqbal al-a'mal and Jamal al-usbu' have narrated it through al-Shaykh al-Tusi. What is narrated in Jamal al-usbu has differences with other versions of the narration. Also in Mafatih al-jinan, this supplication has been narrated in the common practices in the month of Sha'ban. Mawla Ahmad Wa'iz Yazdi (d. 1310/1892) has written Sharh du'a shajarat al-nubuwwa as a commentary on Salawat Sha'baniyya which includes 8000 verses of poem. http://en.wikishia.net/view/Al-Salawat_al-Sha'baniyya Al-Ṣalawāt al-Shaʿbānīyya (Arabic: اَلصَّلَوات الشَّعبانِيَّة) is a supplication quoted from Imam al-Sajjad (a) which is recommended to be recited every day in the month of Sha'ban at noon and midnight. Shi'a usually recite it between Zuhr and 'Asr prayers. The general message of this Salawat is explanation of the position of the Ahl al-Bayt (a)and emphasis on their Wilaya. http://en.wikishia.net/view/Al-Salawat_al-Sha'baniyya In View of Scholars Imam Khomeini: "al-Sha'baniyya supplication is one of the greatest supplications and one of the vastest divine wisdom which only some people can benefit from it to the extent of their understanding. Have you read the al-Sha'baniyya supplication? Read it! The al-Sha'baniyya supplication is one of the supplications which if someone follows it and thinks about it, it brings him to the purpose." Mirza Javad Maliki: "al-Sha'baniyya supplication contains a vast knowledge about the quality of the dealing of the servant with God, it is the manner of supplication and asking forgiveness."[7] Sayyid 'Ali Khamenei: al-Sha'baniyya supplication –which is narrated that Ahl al-bayt (a) were reciting it- is one of the supplications that their mystical style and their eloquent expressions, have a very prominent content and full of divine wisdom, which is not found in ordinary tongues and expressions, and basically could not be stated with ordinary tongues. The supplication is a complete instance of orison and supplication of the righteous servants of God, to their beloved God and to the holy Lord. It is the lesson of wisdom, the example and instance of supplication and the request of a faithful person from God. http://en.wikishia.net/view/Al-Sha'baniyya_Supplication In the sky, the sea is called the Sea of Blessings, and on its lips the tree is called the tree of the Greetings. On that tree is nest of a bird in the name of the Bird of Salavat, and when the believer arrives in the month of Sha'ban, he sends to the Master ofProphet (s) Salavat, Allahcommands the bird to dip in that sea and put his feathers, and every drop from the feathers of that bird To create an angle, and all those angels shall devote themselves to sanctifying, extolling and enlightening the Lord, and their rewards shall be recorded in the court of the reciter of Salavat.It is worth mentioning that in the following narration, one Salavat in the month of Sha'bān is equal to ten Salavat in the non-month of Sha'ban. 1 . وسائل الشیعه ، ج 10 ، ص 492 ، باب 28 ، و مصباح المتهجد ، ص 28 Wasayel'al Shia v 10, p492 chapter(section) 28 & Misbah al-mutahajjid p28 http://www.portal.esra.ir/Pages/Index.aspx?kind=2&lang=fa&id=NjQ2NQ%3D%3D-XMzDOD6XOHE%3D

    istikhara and divorce

    I don't know the Sastani system.But you got married following those rules.so it would be better if you followed the Sastani rules to get the divorce as well.according to what you said..you just repeated some verses to accept each other as husband and wife. It was more of an internal accord/acceptance, right ? were there witnesses present ? Are you sure your marriage in islam is valid ? Did you get married just reading that net page of that Sastani website ? Or did you get more informed on this before getting married ? So you pronounced these verses and started living together as husband and wife, right ? You didn't even register your marriage nor did you sign a marriage contract. I think, but this is just me that your marriage way wasn't right. Thats why all these problems are occuring. But Allah knows better. (Sorry for my english, it's not my native language) And the last note..don't loose hope,stay strong and have faith. You are an independent woman he can not keep you in this marriage forcibly.things will change.You will live a happy life Inshallah.the divorce might take some time but you will get it at the end if you decide to take it with Allah's help. And if the only way to get the divorce from him will be that he must pronounce it himself then try to negotiate with him in some way.

  32. "Among the acts that invalidate fasting is intentionally eating and drinking. So, if a person who is fasting eats or drinks by mistake (e.g., he forgot that he was fasting) and not intentionally, his fasting is in order and there is no penalty upon him." Sawm: Fasting » General Rules by Seestani https://www.sistani.org/english/book/46/2035/ Your fast will be in order unless you further take any action that invalidates the fast.

  37. It was during Ramadan that I connected with a Muslim coworker. Before that I didn't know what a Muslim was and didn't know there was more than one kind. We talked, we prayed together, we agreed together. Not once did either of us feel the need to convert the other. I had to come here to find out we had things to argue about.

  40. Salam aleykum, So if I understood it correctly, you have been married to this women for several years now and you have 2 children together? If thats the case then you need to be very careful, you dont want to put your children thru divorce and a split up family, its very hurtful for them. If your in laws are the problem then maybe you can move to another town away from them so your interaction with them becomes much less. As far as your wife goes, you need to lead her spiritually and your children as well, your the husband and the leader of the family.

  41. He has a very flawed idea of Islam, I saw one speech of him talking about Islam and it's clear he didn't know what he was talking about but he did say he's open to changing his ideas on it so maybe someone in the University of Toronto could go have a chat with him (there are so many muslims so how has this not happened already?). One sister told me he respected Deism yet said Islam hasn't made any contributions to humanity which is.... :/ but otherwise he seems like a cool guy.

  43. A sincere final message to everyone involved in the discussion and everyone who is just observing: Discussions about certain rituals , such as rolling around in thick mud, self-mutilation of men, women and children and the like evoke emotional responses on all sides. Suffice to say the fact such acts have now become so central to some peoples hearts is evidence that certain minorities have formed cults and revolve around these practises, as if it were a foundation of their religion. You will see on this thread what should not be occurring: personal attacks, twisting of arguments, and fallacies made of all kinds. I am asking you, either as a contributor on here, or an onlooker to ignore personal attacks, cliques, one liners, sarcasm, or who can talk the most abrasively, and focus rather on the merit of the arguments. You might end up doing this and disagreeing with me, and that's fine, because that is your right. Examine carefully the points made, the claims built on, and give each side a fair reading. This will be my last post, and last contribution. I will not respond to any more posts, nor be provoked with personal attacks or twisting of my words. I don't think it's worth engaging in that sort of dialogue, and life is too short to waste on pettiness. I was involved in this thread because i feel i have a good case to believe in what i believe, and because i want the best for this Madhab. I've made my points, i've sufficiently countered points - in my eyes - and said all i feel there needs to be said for this particular discussion. Again, this image is unacceptable: Ultimately, Allah is a witness, and i refer everything to him, at the end of the day.

  46. Musa when he was sent with his revelation, felt there was knot on his tongue and asked for Harun for Harun was better at speech. In my belief, Nubuwa is a connection between the earth and the highest heaven, containing higher wisdom, that although is apparent in the hearts of God's chosen ones, they have hard time conveying it to the masses. Ali was made the Door to the Wisdom of the Prophet, "I am the city of wisdom, and Ali is it's gate". Ali was a help in conveying the subtle secrets of wisdom, the higher truths, on behalf of Mohammad, and hence was made the door to the city of wisdom in the life of time Mohammad in the same way Harun aided Musa in conveying the higher truths in eloquent and explainable form. The Quran says "no one knows it's interpretation except for God; as well as the Firmly rooted in knowledge, they say we believe in it all...:" If you don't believe there is higher wisdom that elites have access to but not everyone, that's up to you. That's denial of the reality of wisdom and higher knowledge. We see in Quran, a person given knowledge from the book was able to bring a whole kingdom in a blink of an eye.
