  1. Salams, I haven't read these books yet, but they seem to have what you're looking for.

  3. Its good that you are openly speaking about your state of mind. And with complex issue such as your's it requires an expert, therefore, go and seek help from an professional. The brain is a complex organ, and occasionally it needs resetting by having cognitive behaviour therapy. give it a try you have nothing to lose but may gain some insight to your issues. Good luck.

  4. From what you're saying, these thoughts are causing you to delay or prolong your wudhu, ghusl, prayers etc.. I would suggest to perform these acts as normal, despite any thoughts that cross your mind, without repeating them. I understand that this may feel inadequate, but the first step to overcoming this challenge might just be to persist with your wudhu, ghusl and prayers as normal. This way even if you're having the thoughts, you aren't allowing them to delay your acts of worship.

    A question for men

    1] ln my own experience, my ex was/is "Miss Persnickety". Other than doing the stuff "high up" and a couple of other things, l could never get it done to a "pass.' 2] ln my observation, not accumulating a lot of junk is a major way to keep things simple. l am going through my things and l asked myself sometime back, "How the H___ did l get all this stuff?"

    Regeneron uses stem cells derived from aborted fetuses. I wonder how the Christian crowd feels about this treatment. I also wonder what are the Islamic rulings on such treatments.

  10. This is not the 1950s anymore. In many households, the husband and wife both work outside the home. If this is the case, then husband and wife need to get together, as a couple, or as a family and distribute the workload in a fair way. If the kids are older, they can help out with chores also. If the wife stays at home and doesn't work outside the home, then she should take on the majority of this responsibility if the couple cannot afford to hire a maid / cook, etc. If you look at the Hadith on the subject, there is nothing that says the women 'must' do these things (cooking, cleaning).

Yes it is sufficient and better that way. أبو علي الأشعري، عن محمد بن عبد الجبار، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن ثعلبة بن ميمون، عن أبي أمية يوسف بن ثابت بن أبي سعيدة، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) أنهم قالوا حين دخلوا عليه: إنما أحببناكم لقرابتكم من رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) ولما أوجب الله عز وجل من حقكم، ما أحببناكم للدنيا نصيبها منكم إلا لوجه الله والدار الآخرة وليصلح لامرىء منا دينه. فقال أبو عبد الله (عليه السلام): صدقتم صدقتم Abu Ali al-Ash’ariy from Muhammad bin Abdil Jabbar from al-Hasan bin Ali bin Fadhal from Tha’laba bin Maymun from Abi Umayya Yusuf bin Thabit bin Abi S

  16. We are all Muslims.And our prosperity in this world and hereafter lies in following Islamic laws as prescribed by Allah and followed by Ahlebayt as. But most of laws need a State government based on Islamic law which is capable and authorised to implement the Islamic laws. But how much we are serious about it and do we have struggled to establish it?

See, during our early youth these days we can reach 30 eating out, consuming processed / junk food, consuming fake dairy milk and all the stuff in shops and restaurants. I have a 25 years old nephew who is like a little brother to me. His wife does not cook, and in summary she is like a pretty cat that he has to take care of round the clock. I pray for them as they are having a baby soon. They both consume commercially sold foods. They both

  18. This is not government, this is sharia... there is no such thing in Islam as government..... as the leaders are divinely elected by Allah. It's their right to be the governing leader... as a government is usually formed through a democracy. So, if you wish to create an Islamic government, that I believe would be run by an elected official... you are going against the Quran.... I'll take my W ....

    He also said he wants the treatment to be free to anyone who needs it. This is far more radical than "Obamacare" which he has consistently tried to revoke. If we could trust Trump, I'd say he's moving in a good direction, but he can't speak without lying.

  24. When anyone studies a little or pays a little attention to the rules of Islamic government, Islamic politics, Islamic society and Islamic economy he will realize that Islam is a very political religion. Anyone who will say that religion is separate from politics is a fool; he does not know Islam or politics. Imam Khomeini. Brother is it good if you say to Iranian government change your Islamic laws from government.Because non of Imam did. But apply western laws were alcohol, prostitution, gay marriage is allowed and hijab is banned.

  31. Salam, There is nothing wrong in being part of a tribe, group, band, clan, or community of people. Of course, if they are taking part in Un-Islamic rituals then yes, there is an issue there. Even if your tribe did perform Un-Islamic rituals, you still don't have to leave the tribe by name. Just don't participate in the rituals..... this is your family we are talking about, and Islam places a large emphasis on maintaining family relations. WS

  32. @Cool As for Ayatollah khomeini (رضي الله عنه), I don't see any wrong what he said. I just want to clarify this, the narration says: From Yāsir, the servant, said, I said to al-Riḍā (عليه السلام), ‘What do you say about al-Tafwīd?’ And he (عليه السلام) said: ‘Allāh (تبارك و تعالى), delegated (fawwaḍa) to His prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) affairs of His religion’, and He said: “Take whatever the Messenger gives to you, and deny for yourself whatever he prohibits” (59:7). As for (delegating) the creation and sustenance, then No! He (عليه السلام) said: ‘Allāh (عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ) says “

  33. Salam, Aisha died a couple of years before Karbala, I believe 2-4 years before. Let's take a look at some of the issues she created in the household of the Ahlul-bayt. Well after the Prophet's death, Aisha didn't allow Fatima Al Zahra to receive here inheritance, and due to this Zahra, and Aisha herself did not receive anything. Aisha herself attempted to create an uprise against Uthman, which eventually lead to his assassination. She blamed this on Imam Ali, and fought against him. If she was willing to kill Imam Ali, I would assume she would have no issue being on the

    A question for men

    So adaptability is an adult trait and sign of maturity. You don't have to do chores, but shifting blame to your parents for raising you one way, and refusing to change because of that is not an admirable quality. We were all raised in different ways. Do we give a man that abuses his wife a pass because that's how he was raised? Do we give a woman who treats poor people with disrespect a pass because that's how they were raised. If you don't want to do chores as an adult, that's totally fine. I'm sure you can find plenty of men that would prefer you to work full time and have a

    Ate/Eating/Will Eat?

    @Diaz I'd say take it easy brother. All you do is eat burgers, french fries, sandwiches, shawarmas and pizza. You're either a poster child for Future Diabetes or that TLC show "My 600 pound life". I eat a lot of frozen stuff like kebabs etc but I eat them in very less quantities; incorporate eating more veggies and salads in between.

    Honestly when I go to heaven. I don't want any gardens of milk/honey, Hoors, Palaces made out of gemstones or anything. Not doing chores anymore would be greater than all those things. But anyway I completed them all. Baked dinner, Threw out trash to the dumpster, Moped the floors, Cleaned my house, washed the dishes and restocked water in my fridge.

  40. Well fyi there are problems, the usuli akhbari conflict is out of style and there is the new "ghali vs muqassir" war being orchestrated now. As for not believing in hadiths, the ghaali have safavid era hadiths, brand new books, ignorant preachers to lead them. and will apply the hadiths you quoted to those who even point out that their hadith sources are lacking in any way. If you point out that their clerics are illiterate they will label you a muqassir. If you do not use intercession or say "ya Ali madat" instead of "Salamu alaikum" or do not recite the third testimony in tashahud, or praise

  41. Exactly my point. Why risk a ghaali or a muqassar by claiming any thing? Instead, the Quran says the best among us ordinary people are those with the best taqwa. We should all instead make more and more efforts to follow in the footsteps of the ahl al bayt (عليه السلام), heed their commands as if our lives depend on it. That is true respect. It is not required of us to determine their nature comprehensively. That frivolous pursuit will lead to great danger.

    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.

  48. I have actually asked a scholar this question, these were our interactions: So yes, “theoretically“ a wife can divorce without the husband’s approval, in practice I assume it would be difficult. I wonder what hadiths this would be based on, and whether the Imam would be taking the Ayatollah’s place? The rationale of the khulla divorce from what I’ve heard is that since the man has to bargain his way into a marriage through dowry, a woman has to bargain her way out (and he has to agree). I know, it sounds incredibly misogynistic, but that is actually what I read on an exegesis.
