  1. This is some weird feminist take. I don’t care if my wife is into housekeeping or not, but chores are expected for any adult. I’m fine with sharing duties, but if you think I’ll pick up your slack just cause you’re some ‘enlightened educated woman’, you’ve got another thing coming. (I also hate men though who can’t even be bothered to take care of their new babies. My cousin is doing this now with his first born and I get livid just talking to him about it.)

    A question for men

    Ideally I think both young men and women should be prepared to share these tasks. I don't think young men these days expect their wife to do it all alone (and they shouldn't) but every young person, male or female, should learn how to do these basic chores.

  3. Salam everyone I hope you in the best of health insha’Allah. First, I just wanna establish some points so I’m not misinterpreted. I know it’s haram to lie and I’m not making this post to be egocentric, this is literally my last resort. Not only do I want an answer to this Q but any respectful alternative advice is welcome. So alhamdulilah I’ve learnt over the years the right manner of how to conduct oneself with the opposite gender. However, the older get the more unwanted and overwhelming attention I get, which I’m sure a lot of girls relate to. I literally don’t post any pics, have no guys on social media, the most I’m involved in is in a uni WhatsApp group that shares resources (I don’t even have a profile pic) I’m the type of person (which I don’t like) that hates confrontation so I find it easy to just say I’m engaged so it’s over with. I know... “why don’t you jus block?” Yes that’s good and well but I can’t block these people that I go university with in real life so it’s awkward if I act coldly to them especially when I’m involved in group projects with etc. When I tell a guy that I’m not interested and I’m keeping things halal they try to find a loophole, but when I say I’m engaged it’s finished and done with. Is that bad? I don’t like in my character that I’m doing this to avoid conflict or that I’m a people pleaser but it just saves so much time. Any advice?

    A question for men

    In the modern economy, most couples are working (in one way or another), which means that most individuals (men and women) will (at some point) take up some of the cooking/cleaning responsibilities. If you are a woman who plans on having children, then there will be long periods of time where you are at home (especially when the kids are very young) and your husband may need to be working harder. In those situations, you may need to do more cooking and cleaning while he is at work. This however is the general trend, and not necessarily the case in every house. @starlight put it best: no cooking means takeout food; no cleaning means a filthy home or a maid service. Neither of these options are sustainable, so we shouldn't "swear off" household duties out of disinterest, laziness, or ideology. Speaking for myself, I find it incredibly attractive if a woman knows how to cook well. No, I'm not looking for a "maid". I just think that there is something innate about men liking women with good nurturing abilities. After all, women are made with wombs and breastfeeding; and so a woman that is incapable of feeding her own children is a bit of a turnoff. She could have the best career in the world - I'll support her, but her career isn't why I'd marry her. I'd marry to build a happy home and a family, and a career-minded woman is sometimes a barrier to those things.

  7. I wouldn't recommend this. Simple and plain tell them you aren't interested and be firm about it. Umm.. why not?? I have around 70 contact in my work whatsapp phone, around 45 are blocked.This includes men from work I see and talk to everyday. WhatsApp is a chat app so why would I have someone there that I don't want to have a causal conversation with? It's a privilege and not everyone gets to enjoy it. Chatting with any chaste muslim women is privilege reserved for a select few. Lots of times I block contacts on whtsapp as soon as I add them my phone if I don't think they fall into the list(people like dry cleaning person or clerical staff from work). If someone from work has something important they can always call or text. So be in the uni group but if someone messages you privately and you don't want to talk have no qualms about blocking them. If they ask about it the next day simply state in a polite firm tone that you don't want to talk, don't offer any explanations like keeping it halal etc. I understand why you want to use the engagement excuse,but this won't work long term. You can't keeping saying that. So take this as an opportunity to learn to set clear boundaries using your words and body language. It's a skill that will come useful all your life.

  8. I am not a man bit still replying. How do you think these chores will get taken care of if you don't intend to do them AT ALL. 1. Take away, cleaning services, dry cleaning - not a viable option for a long period. Especially after one has kids. 2. Husband does all the cooking and cleaning - it would be very difficult,next to impossible to find someone whose is willing to do everything at home besides having a job/career. And would that be fair? 3. You live somewhere where you can get full time househelp - Unless you are on top of the things house will still be poorly run with your staff slacking around and stealing from you. I see it all around me. So I will repeat the question, dishes and dirty floors are not going to take care of themselves . What is your plan? This is a genuine question,maybe if you have something good in mind that I can't think of.

  9. Walaykom Al-Salam sister, Perhaps this can be an opportunity for you to learn to be more bold, while remaining respectful. Sometimes the best response is a clear and honest one, you don't need to sugarcoat it or overcompensate for something that involves your long term future and afterlife. Maybe you can highlight that you're not interested in getting married/engaged, because you're seeking to be more focused on studies and other matters which pertain to your personal life respectively, it is great to be kind and have manners but you can do that while also not owing others a reason for your rejection/mis-interest. For those who seek to find loopholes, you can address it quite bluntly as disrespectful and inconsiderate of them with regard to what you already highlighted - which is the wish to not get married for whatever reasons you don't seek to list, any off-topic discussions/jokes can be meted out via your firm demeanor.

  10. Salam, Sometimes women misinterpret men attempting to have a genuine conversation with them as "hitting on them". I remember once in school, I was lost and needed directions. I asked a girl where so and so class was and she replied with "I have a boyfriend", and walked away.. of course my intention was to find the classroom, and she was the only one in the hall... but of course she misunderstood my approach. In the west, and European nations, both men and women mingle, and talk. It's seen as normal, and isn't frowned upon like in the middle-east. If you have a WhatsApp group with both men, and women, just don't reply. Or reply when you need too. Likewise, sometimes men also misinterpret communication. Yes, it's easy to say "I have a boyfriend", or "I'm engaged", but a small lie can bite you in the behind in the future. Just be upfront, if a person is visibly hitting on you. If it's a normal conversation on a Whatapps chat, I guarantee you nobody will be hitting on you. But, if its through a private DM, then you should let the person know that you don't feel comfortable talking to the opposite sex due to your religious obligations. Many times myself, I've declined to go on coffee breaks with my female colleagues, and I simply told them due to my religious obligations I cannot go unless another male co-worker accompanies me. They perfectly understood, and were not offended by my request. They know I'm a practicing muslim, man I even pray at work LOL, but they don't mind because I'm upfront. If you hide things, people tend to be curious and keep nagging. At first, I kept telling them next time I'd go, but when next time came around I told them next week I'll go get some coffee with them.... well they kept asking me, and I finally spilled the beans. They stopped asking me, or would ask if another male co-worker wanted to tag along. Of course we talked about work during these breaks . You just need to be upfront. For example if someone messaged you on WhatsApp, simply leave them on a seen. If they ask why you left them on a seen, just reply with "I don't feel comfortable talking to you due to my religious obligations". The other guy will understand, and of course you'll get those weirdos who keep texting, so simply block them. Don't make life harder than it needs to be, I know it can be hard. But Im a guy with many white friends, and I've turned down many girls in my life due to my religious obligations. Of course my friends tease me about it, but they respect me a ton for staying away from that stuff. The magic word is "I'm a muslim", that in itself is a rejection. Anyways, hope that helps. WS

  12. That's a good point. I should say that I don't fear trials. Just the ability to go over them with ease and graciousness. Like, I'll leave whatever happens to me to Allah. Whether I become rich or poor, whether I'm commanded to fight for the faith or I continue to live my usual modern, comfortable life here in Canada. Like, what happens, happens. That's just generally how I approach them.

  13. Salam, Depends where you live. In a middle-eastern society, more emphasis is laid on women to manage the household affairs such as cooking, taking care of the kids, etc. This is culture, and societal expectations, of course the husband also helps around the house, but look towards the wife for directions. I'm assuming you are living in the West, or a European nation, so this changes the entire story. People often have a misconception that muslim women only role is to cook, clean, take care of the kids, and please her husband. This is absolutely incorrect. Our Prophet's first wife Khadija was a very successful business woman, and was a key figure in Islam's survival. Anyways, when it comes to marriage, cooking, cleaning, and dividing up various chores, and responsibilities will be your test. Many couples can agree that these simple things ignited many fires, and the simple solution was to suck it up, and do it. Of course our egos get in the way of rational thinking sometimes. Of course nobody enjoys cleaning the dishes, or cleaning around the house, this is why it's called a chore. Right now you have a mother who does this for you, so you feel entitled, and dare I say privileged. We've all been there while we were young, so I'll give you that. Once you grow up, and learn the difficulties of life. You'll learn that these chores were made to build disciple. Cleaning the dishes, cooking, and various other small chores were meant to prepare you for the bigger chores you'll face in the future such as mayor financial responsibilities, waking up at 4am in the morning due to a crying baby, sacrificing your wants for the family, and etc. Our society has also become very lazy due to technology, and it's quit a shame. I remember when I was young, I proudly told a Shiekh I never helped my parents around the house and he looked at me shocked. He yelled three times "thawab, thawab, thawab", and I quickly understood what he meant. Helping your parents do chores, even the smallest such as picking up wrappers from the floor will give you HUGE thawab. Your parents won't always be there, so help them out. Anyways, men in the west expect you to help around the house. As a male, I don't expect my wife to be Gordan Ramsey level cook, but as a husband it's my duty to support my wife, and help where I can. When my wife asks me to go grocery shopping, I GO. Not because she'll yell at me, and ignore me for the rest of the day. But, it's because she enjoys it ( I don't know why), and me being there as the guy who pushes the cart around enables her to enjoy grocery shopping. Grocery shopping takes only an hour, and at the end of the day I have a happy wife, good food, and stuff I snuck onto the cart that I can eat in secret LOL. So it's all about supporting one another, and helping where you can.... it's really that easy. If you don't like cleaning, cooking etc... then at least do something even if it's 5 plates, or even motivation LOL. How does you being educated entitle you to being lazy, and exempt from your household duties? Your husband will most likely be educated, and working full-time? How is this fair? You cannot expect your future husband to work, clean the house, and cook.... it's just not possible, and nobody has that much time. If you divide up the duties, then yes its quite manageable. Men just want a Khadija, a woman who balanced work, religion, and a household. Strive to be a Khadija.

When the Prophet (S) asked Safia (his aunt) to bring him the newborn child, she said: "We have not cleaned him yet." When the Prophet (S) heard this, he said: "You clean him?! Surely Allah the Exalted has cleaned and purified him." (Fatima, the gracious) https://www.al-islam.org/fatima-the-gracious-abu-muhammad-ordoni/birth-imam-husayn

  15. Ankum means 'from you', but the use of ankum rather than minkum suggests that the impurity is external rather than internal. Reading my previous post again, I see that I didn't explain it correctly. The impurity is indeed removed, but in the way an obstacle may be removed (something external) rather than how a disease is removed (internal).

Heaps of misunderstanding and misconceptions by one another. By marriage and friendship with one another. By not cursing who sunnahs hold dearly and by stop praising the enemies of who Shia hold dearly.

  17. Not only does God have no-beginning and no-end, He also has no "before" and no "after" (in time). In other words, He is not in time (He is not bound by any time reference). I believe this is the point I was trying to make. So one should not say "God is 'before' creation" or that "creation is 'after' God". All dualities such as (This vs That) as in the statement "We are this and God is that", are ultimately merely mental categories / concepts that are not themselves real. Even to maintain that "God is Infinite and creation is finite" is a duality and therefore has to be understood as a mental category (i.e. not real). The duality of "God" and "Creation" is itself a mental category and is not real.

  18. I generally don’t like to pray for worldly things. I want to ask for ease to go through whatever is intended for me to go through, to stay on the straight path, and for my family’s health and safety given the pandemic. (Ok maybe one thing) If I live to see the Mahdi, that’s grand. If not, also grand. Idk, don’t think about it much.

  19. This is purely an academic discussion and not meant to offend anyone. I am trying to draw parallels between 4 different islamic civil wars (battles). Ridda Wars - Apostasy Wars under the reign of Caliph Abu Bakr against those either stopped being Muslims or refused to acknowledge the leadership of Abu Bakr. Battle of Jamal: Caliph Ali (عليه السلام) against Aisha, Talha, Zubayr and others Battle of Siffin: Caliph Ali (عليه السلام) against Muawiya Battle of Karbala: Yazid against Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) @Cherub786 stated: The justification for Ridda (Apostasy) Wars was the rebels were challenging the writ of the State. Based on the above, we can all agree that challenging the writ of the State is rebellion and not only is it a rebellion but the rebels can be labelled apostates because that is what the Caliphate chose to call them. Q1) Based on the agreement above (blue), can we then assume the Aisha, Talha, Zubayr and other prominent 'sahaba' were apostates? Did they not rebel against Caliph Ali and challenged the writ of the State? Q2) Based on the above agreement (blue), can we assume that Muawiya was an apostate for challenging the writ of the State? Q3) Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) did not challenge the writ of the State directly but isn't not paying allegiance also an act of challenging the writ of the State? Some of the tribes in Ridda Wars were massacred simply for not paying allegiance to Abu Bakr so Yazid had a precedent set before him. Doesn't that justify that Yazid was right in going after Hussain and crushing the rebellion? Based on the agreement, does challenging the writ of the State make Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) an apostate (istagfirullah)? Q4) How are the actions of Yazid different from the actions of Caliph Abu Bakr? Please know that this is a serious academic discussion and not intended to hurt anyone's feelings.

    I'm sure any Shi'a can make the reverse arguement on you as well. You're just saying Sunni Islam is the correct religion in a politically correct way. Being the majority doesn't always make you right.

  22. The mass adoption of the Western style of dress has made the world a duller place. Oftentimes, not in every case but in many, traditional clothing was a lot more elegant than what most of us wear today. Look at the Japanese for example, their old style of dressing was quite nice, now it is either European or a disaster, that is the case for a lot of the oriental countries such as Korea and China.

  23. There was never such a thing as “Islamic clothing”. Muslim way of dressing depends on geographical region they’ve found themselves in. When you look at Orientalist paintings from 18 and 19 centuries, it’s pretty evident that the clothes worn by Muslims differed considerably based on the geography, personal preferences etc. What’s modest today, wouldn’t be considered such before. Even today for one woman wearing niqab may be a symbol of modesty, while another one may dress more Western. By the way, Muslims of the past used to be relatively tolerant of many aspects of religion that today wouldn’t be widely accepted. Ironically, it’s the Western Victorian era norms brought over by the Europeans that caused Muslims to shift into more conservative paradigm on things, and because Muslims desired “modernisation”, they started adapting and absorbing Western ways of thinking into Islam.

    A question for men

    No profile to go by, but "man are you got 'it' wrong". To wit: MESS is in the eye of the beholder. Your real problem is the dust. So get an air cleaner and let it run. Mine is right now. Change the filter every 3-6 months. CLEAN UP is taking a shower l guess. Depending on your work, take one whenever necessary. l write "shwr" on my calendar and keep track that way. Never more than 6-7 weeks between them. TOILETS are something you have to keep clean. lt is basic sanitation. You are not in the Russian or Bosnian armies you know. WASHING CLOTHES: lt takes five minutes to load plus unload a machine. Can't be easier. DISHES: Get ONE BOWL and 1 spoon. Use it for everything but baking or frying unless you get a metal one. Steel is best, but not if you microwave. Then wash it and use it for the next meal, snack. This way, you do not have to "wash dishes". N0TICE: You can do all the above in half an hour. So, unless you want the hassle and expense, there is no point in getting marred.

It is one thing to believe that they don't require ghusl after having physical relations with a woman or don't need to take baths, but to believe that blood can't touch or stick to their skin is on a whole other level of crazy.

  28. Yes. I have a good workaround for you. It's sad that you need this. In the old days (the 90s cough), guys were actually able to get subtle cues. As muslims, our terms and values are Islamic terms and values. The concept of 'engagement' does not exist in Islam, therefore it does not exist to us. You are either married or not married. The term engagement is a Western, vague, cultural term that means anything from I have discussed marriage to this person to 'We are getting married tomorrow'. It is thought to be part of Islam by some muslims. It is a cultural practice in some muslim countries.So you can use this concept to shield yourself from unwanted advances and attention. As long as there is a man that you are discussing marriage with, in some vague way, even without any commitment implied, you can say you are engaged and you wouldn't be lying since the term itself is vague. For example if you say I am a 'vsdadggbabaseerere' (string of random characters, don't try to pronounce it), you wouldn't be lying UNTIL there is a mutually agreed upon definition of what a 'vsdadggbabaseerere' is and you fall outside the definition. There is no agreed upon definition of 'engaged' between muslims and non muslims. Since there is no agreed upon definition for that word, lying does not come into the picture. Hope that helps. Btw, if you look up the definition of the word engaged, it has 5 meanings https://www.google.com/search?q=engaged+definition&rlz=1C1GCEA_enUS865US865&oq=engaged+definition&aqs=chrome..69i57.5166j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 One is 2. participate or become involved in. So this is a general term. You don't have to say you're engaged to be married (the more formal definition). Technically, you could say your 'engaged' meaning your participating in or involved with something. Which is true of everyone unless you are in a coma. If the guy wants to ask a follow up question about how you are 'engaged', you can say 'It's none of your business'. Which is the best answer in that case.

  30. I went to Kufa and our guide there took us to a place which he said was the house of imam Ali (عليه السلام). He showed us around and said that this house has no toilets, which he claimed shows that the Ahlul-Bait are pure and did not need to pass stool or urine. I don't believe him, but if Allah has removed all impurities from Ahlul-Bait, does that imply that their urination and defecation are not impurities for them? Or did they really never needed to use toilets because that is impurity. I have heard Lady Fatima (عليه السلام) did not menstruate, but the Prophet (s) did allow the door of imam Ali (s) house to remain open while he closed the doors of other people which opened into the mosque. So the question is....If they are pure to the extent that all impurities are removed, does that include or exclude ritual impurities such as urination, defecation, janabah and menstruation?

    A question for men

    There are all kinds of men out there, as long as your are clear with how you hope to go on sharing a life with a potential spouse. I prefer a woman who is ambitious when it comes to her goals in life, making it a priority to take care of the household, being respectful to her religious obligations and also having the good character to compromise for the betterment of her children's health and home stability. It would be great if she can cook, cleaning shouldn't really be listed as a 'skill' because as Muslims it is a fundamental element within our lives and if the male or female are unable to clean and be cleanly they should address that issue before seeking marriage. I would love to learn how to cook and help my wife in the kitchen, the only issue is that I would be gone for the majority of the time when working. Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) stated that the signs of the end times is when women share their husbands in work - chasing this transitory world, so it is important to note that if you seek to work there should be an emphasis on the children with respect to the motherly nurture they receive, as well as having the correct reasons for seeking to work. Are you working to be 'independent' or do you think it is a better way for you to work collectively in aiding your family, as well as taking the route to that which can help you in gaining nearness to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) I agree, you should first reflect on many ideas you have towards marriage and seek to rectify those through an Islamic perspective, instead of a modernist egotistical one, respectively.

  41. Salam Layman. I think one also needs to consider one important element in these cases. My advice to people would be that if you think your heart has more questions than answers. Then, it's best to stay away from mystics and their philosophies. It'll only put you in more confusion and lead you to even more questions. If you think you have proper understanding and grasp of your own belief system/concepts/Shi'a philosophies first. Then go for it. Otherwise, best to leave it and focus on learning your own school of thought and everything that it entails. This is best for you anyway as it will lead to more clarity. The rest is just curiosity about other people. Wasalam.

  43. 20. Does ‘Injury by an Evil Eye’ Possess any Reality? In verse 51 of Suratul Qalam, we read: “And those who disbelieve would almost smite you with their eyes when they hear the reminder…” The Noble Prophet (S) replied: “Yes (there is no harm in it). Had there been something that could have superseded Divine fate and destiny, it should have been 'evil eye!'”1 In another tradition it has been reported that the Commander of the Faithful ((عليه السلام).) said: The Noble Prophet (S) secured a charm for Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).) and recited the following supplication: “I place you in the refuge of all of the Perfect Words and the Best Names of Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).) from death, harmful animals, evil eye and from the evil of the envious when he envies.” Then turning to us, he (S) said: “Likewise Prophet Ibrahim did the charm for Isma'il and Ishaq.”2 In Nahjul Balaghah we read: “Injury by the evil eye is true and resorting to prayers to ward away its evils is true too.”3 and 4 https://www.al-islam.org/180-questions-enquiries-about-islam-volume-two-various-issues/20-does-injury-evil-eye-possess-any https://en.wikishia.net/view/Evil_Eye https://en.shafaqna.com/43157/is-evil-eye-true/ Supplications for warding off sorcery and evil eye Harm of the evil eye It is narrated from Abi Abdullah ((عليه السلام).) that he said: If the graves are opened for you, you will see that the majority of the people died due to the evil eye, because the evil eye is a fact; know that the Messenger of Allah ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.) has said: The evil eye is a fact. So one who is astonished by something his brother has, he should mention Allah’s name (i.e. say Maa Shaa Allaah). For if he does so it would not harm him.[1] It is narrated from Abi Abdullah ((عليه السلام).) that he said: The evil eye is a fact. You are not safe from it yourself and neither others are safe from you. So when you fear something like this say: “As Allah willed” (Maa Shaa Allaah). There is no strength and power, except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty,” three times. He said: When one of you dresses in such elegant way that arouses amazement, he should recite Surah Falaq and Surah Naas while leaving his house; then it would not cause harm by the leave of Allah.[2] http://www.duas.org/magic_th.htm

  44. (Male btw just stating my opinion) I really don't have a problem if they are of any race. As long as the woman/man is Muslim. I'm not saying don't marry if the woman/man is not Muslim. It's better if she/he is Muslim if you want Children and you want them to be good Muslims, because Its a fact that most kids spent time with their mother the most. Now take Imam al Sadiq (عليه السلام), the mother of his son Musa al-Kadhim (عليه السلام), was Hamīdah al-Barbariyyah (سلام الله عليها). She was a Berber. But the Truthful (عليه السلام) still Married her. This is why I really don't care about race, only Imaan.

  45. Alhamdulilah, As it stands at this point I’m just hoping that my wudhu is correct and my 5 daily Prayers are being accepted. I’m far more concerned about rather or not I got through the day being pleasing to Allah and not feeling over confident about the good things I think have done. How could I have been a better Muslim today? Was I kind enough with my family and friends and Fellow believers I don’t know today? Did I give enough sadaqah today? Could I have made more night prayers last night instead of watching Netflix? Alhamdulilah, Allah has cleaned me up a lot from a lot of my pass mistakes but at this point I’m still trying to perfect the basic requirements that Allah requires of me. If I'm called upon by Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام). it will be by the will of Allah. But as it stands now I’m sure there are those out there way more worthy of being 313. May Allah shower his mercy on all of his servants and forgive us our shortcomings.

    All About The 313!

    According to what I have heard, women will not be in the army of the imam, because fighting is something reserved for men. It is an ideology out of respect for women, not to lower their status or rights. And speaking of the Hadith, an Imam has told me that, the hadith in question, is highly disputed among the scholars. Many scholars deny it saying the chain is weak.

  47. From the book mentioned above, these are the names below. The footnote source is Dala'el Al-Imama 566. It also says "The total number of the people mentioned in this section is slightly less than three hundred and thirteen. One possible reason for not including all of the companions may be for reasons like TAQIYYAH (precaution). Abu Jaafar Mohammad bin Jarir Al Tabari narrated from Abil Husain Mohammad bin Harun, from Abi Harun bin musa bin ahmad, from abi ali hasan bin ahmad/mohammad al nahawendi, from abi jaafar mohammad bin ibrahim bin abdullah al qummi al qattan known as ibn al khazzaz from mohammad bin ziyad, from abi abdillah al khorasani, from abil husain abdillah bin hasan al zohari, from abil hasan sa'eed bin jinaah, from mas'oud/mas'adah bin sadaqah, from abi baseer, who said: Imam Sadiq named the companions of the Qa'em for me as follows: (Bazaan) Bandar bin Amad bin Sabaka -

  48. Then by all means present here your arguments against it I don't hate Paul, any more than I hate Abu Bakr, Adolph Hitler, Stalin or any other despot who gained too much power What I hate are the schemes he pulled. Worst of all he is the father of a creed that has literally wiped out indigenous cultures and people over two continents. The very same creed that has, and continues to justify incursions into my people's land. Take Israel for example, how much of that conflict is happening because of the need to shove the world Jewry there so they can die and the remaining few can become christians, all so you can get your messiah. And where does all of this chaos come from; it comes from a body of thought Paul founded. So do you still believe I have no reason to hold any grudges against Paul?

    JINN

    wow its been 2 years since anyone put their own 2 cents in here, but i have learned some things about jinns, jinns are creature, just like us they are not spirits, if you want a description i suggest you read the book "Bartameius Trilogy" though fiction, and written by non-muslim, it does describe jinns effeciently, they are immaterial beings, who do not really have physical form, and they can be any where, from a mouse hole, to a cave. i remember seeing a post saying, that the jinn were progenys of shaytan. no that is not true, jinns are created from smokeless fire, and so is shaytan, rather he is an evil jinn, whodisobeyed allahs direct orders. jinns live like us, htey marry they worship a religion, they live in tries, and they apparently live a long life of hundreds of years, according to our prophet. and i believe in one ayat, it says, Prophet mohmad (pbuh) was no just a messenger of islam to Humans, but also to jinns, as humans had worshipped jinns along with idols. as for talking, and meeting, and summoning jinns, isnt exclusively haraam, but rather obligatory precautionary to not do it, as jinns are very unpredictable. jinns are good and evil, and evil jinns, are called marids, and Irfits. jinns can be controlled, as demonstarted by hazraat sulaman (pbuh) though he was directly granted that power by Allah. but humans can control jinns as well, it is called Ilm' Jaffari. why? because imam jaffer as-sadiq (A.S.) had left behind many books, about Spiritual cosmology, numerology, and other things. for example my great-grandfather, had collected many books of imam jaffer as -sadiq(A.S), after he had retired and he learned, how to predict the future, tell a person what kind of stone, they should wear for maximum barkaat, ergo...turquise, ruby, emerald, diamond ring. he was able to create those small little stickers that have ayats which are usually placed on top of the door, he could mix them together, to place restrictions on jinns, he was able to control them, and as a side thing, he would travel aroud and help any jinn and release them from the control of some man, who was controlling them for some evil purpose. im sure you have heard seen of those comercials with all these guys saying, that if you have bad luck or something, and if you come to us, well fix them, well those bad luck is basically you enemies having set jinns aupon you,and these guys are actually cutting the shackles of the jinns so he can stop obeying the person. ergo I dont like this guy at work, so i go to this man who could control jinns, i pay him, and he sets jinns on them, then my great-grandfater come upon this poor man with badluck, he finds the jinn trouling this man, so he reads some ayat, or gives the man some item, and the shackles that the evil man put on the poor jinn, will be destoryed. just so you know, jinns arent evil they are good and bad like us. as for this stuff being haraam, yes it is if your doing it for evil deeds, or monetary reward in any case, my grandfather did this to help people and improve their lives. though according to my dad, he had barely scrathe the tip of the iceburg of the knowledge that is ilm' jaffari. though this knowledge is almost lost, you can most probably find this type of knowledge in india, with really oldreligious men, who live in villages, or are mullahs, like one of my dads cousin and friend who are both mullahs, and they can control jinns, though jinns are not to be trifled with for example, my dads friend, slipped for an instant in his control on one of the jinns, and the jinns, ready to run away kicked him in the back and tried to leave, but of course the mullah, was ble to catch him back immedialtely because it happened in his house which had restrictions every where on the house for jinns, to keep them from doig anything to harm him or his family, anyway his back was bad for a while and he didnt dare, control any more jinns for a while, though he only used jinns, to help fight other jinns, who werent being controlled or being controlled, and were doing evil deeds. so yeah.
