    Sad, embarrassing and highly irresponsible. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) have mercy on the deceased and grant patience to their families.

    Neither the Shia, nor the Sunni, the Sufi, your mom or your brother will be able to save you or answer for you when you are in your grave. It is just you, your belief and your deeds from this world, and the hope of the mercy of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and the intercession of the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). Therefore, follow what you believe to be the truth without concerning yourself with what everyone else thinks or says about you. Wallahu a'lam

    Salam, I was just thinking about his recently. These are all my own opinions, and of course we can all better ourselves; myself included. I was asking myself 'what makes a bad person'? This is what I came up with. 1) Narcissism: one of the things you find most violent offenders have in common is narcissism. They think they have the brains and intelligence to get away with so much and can fool everyone around them. Narcissism and arrogance is also a trait found in ordinary civilians, who do not commit such crime. However, having this trait can be equally as destructive. Believing in oneself being superior to others is both unislamic and extremely harmful to everyone around that person. It's the belief that a person is so above everyone else because of their sex, age, or status is just outrageous. What makes a person a good/bad person is their beliefs, their behaviour and their heart...not their status - be it social or economic. 2) Hypocrisy: this goes hand in hand with narcissism. Believing that oneself is above the rules and everyone else leads them to being quite the hypocritical creature. Do not treat others in a way you'd find unjust if you were treated in the same way. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Treat others as equals. Treat others according to the same standards you would like to be treated. These are all things we all need to remind ourselves of. It's easy to slip into the trap of hypocrisy, and it's understandable, but what differentiates us is how we rectify that wrong. 3) Inability to forgive: aka what blackens the heart. Imam Hussein(عليه السلام) was capable of forgiving Hur, the man who wouldn't give the Imam and his family even a drop of water. Who do we think we are rejecting apologies from others? What gives us that standpoint when even an infallible and perfect man like the Imam (عليه السلام) forgave a man who was his enemy? Inability to forgive also eventually leads to acts of revenge that may be detrimental. These are just my thoughts, and im sure I've missed some things out. Feel free to add onto the list.

    Voting=Shirk? Please Clarify

    Salam. When we vote, we are not giving our Bayyat (allegience) to the government. Also, we do not consider them to be our leaders. If you vote with the Niyyat that this XYZ National Government is your leader, like the Imam(a.f.s) is your leaders, and you accept all their policies, then you shouldn't vote. Most people don't vote with this Niyyat. The rational Muslim and follower of Ahl Al Bayt recognizes that they live in a country where they only way you can have a say in what happens in the country is if you vote. So they vote so that they can have a voice. That is why I encourage all the brothers and sisters who are able, and able to have the correct Niyyat when they vote, to vote. That way, as Muslims and as followers of Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)) we can affect the policies of the country where we live. If you don't vote, you have no voice and no say. That is the reality. So we shouid vote for that reason.

    Hi all, I posted on this site when I was pregnant with my son last year for advice. I fell pregnant to a Shia Muslim man and he decided he wanted nothing to do with me or his son because of his family circumstances (hes not married). His reasons for not wanting to see his son are because he did not want a child and his family would disown him if they found out. He also stated he did not want to be with me (after a 3 year relationship) which was all one sided and kept secret from his family. I posted on this site asking advice on whether to tell his parents or not. I decided not to tell his parents as I did not want him to be left without a home. I tried everything in my power to have him in my sons life. However, his decision was final. I accepted the fact that he did not want anything to do with us. He helps finanically and I appreciate this more than anyone will ever know. I finally reached out to his sister when my son was 7 weeks old. To my surprise she wanted to see us both and have a relationship with my son. She confirmed that his mother and father (father more so) would not allow their son back into their lives if they found out about me and my son. I finally told my sons father that I reached out to his sister and he is fine with that. However, he still does not want anything to do with my son. Sorry for the long post! I thought I would just give a little background information about my situation. I have thought about converting to Islam for a long time now. I have family who are Muslim who I do not have a relationship with due to personal family reasons and have always wondered about what my life would be like if I did see them and I was brought up in Islam. I would like to know more about Shia Islam and read books before I make my decision. So I guess I am looking for books, websites and any one in my area - London, who could kindly help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thank you

    Salam, Sounds like infatuation, especially since you have only known her for 10 days in your whole life. Do you know the difference between infatuation and love? Infatuation is what you feel for a girl you barely know after 2 meetings, love is what your mother feels for you when you start to get depressed and fail at school/work because your infatuated with a girl you don’t know and its messing with your health. I think you should talk to your parents and ask them to find you a suitable match for marriage, sounds like its the right time for you.

    When I was officially a child in pre-school, I aspired to be a soldier. I would sometimes wear a small uniform with jungle camouflage and badges on it. It was my favorite. Later a few years before O levels, perhaps my best friend was a super genius like Nikola Tesla (no seriously, but his is a sad tale) I aspired to be a scientist. In our school were held science exhibitions and other festivities each year and my projects were always there in all three of our science labs of chemistry, physics and biology. In fact I started doing such projects in pre-school where I once disassembled a few toys and with a slight help from my dad, an engineer, I built a robot that could stand and its eyes would flash and give beeps as well as a little model doll house complete with electrical wiring for lights. Later I tried to join the army engineering corps but it didn't work in the end so I became a civil engineer basically because my father wished I should and inherit his civil engineering business. Then later I self taught electrical and electronics engineering among a few other things all out of curiosity. I already had diplomas in computer things. I still do amazing scientific based projects sometimes, my kitchen is powered by indiginously produced biogas methane, house is on solar, repair things on my own and even made a few so-called free energy experiments like Bedini's motor etc. I could not become a soldier but the rough nearly lawless and corrupt society taught me enough of soldiering things too over time.

    no mosque to attend

    I took shahada a year ago with people I've lost contact with. There is no mosque to attend. I've studied Islam online and prayed by myself. The closest masjid is in a neighboring city I can't travel to due to the lack of a car or other transportation. I'm trying to get what I need financially to move but am failing to be to save any money. I've tried to find Muslims to have a prayer group with but they don't exist in the area.

    I just don't understand how Sunni respect Muawiya. They claim they will reject a hadith if even one narrator is a controversial character. Yet they respect the man who went to war with their 4th righteous caliph.

    Thoughts 2020

    Happy new year guys. I know a lot of people say this but I’m serious, 2019 is my favorite year. On 2019, I promised myself to learn more about Islam, I always wondered why there was a lot of sect and which one is real, I promised myself if my sect is wrong, I will change it immediately. So I start learning about Sunni and Shi’a because I always wanted to know why many Sunnis believe we are kufar. Alhamdulliah, I’m proud to say I’m Shia and I’m not going to change my sect. Sunni people lied a lot about us while we never lied about their beliefs. I’m happy to be alive till now, inshallah I will live longer and learn more about my religion. Inshallah 2020 will be blessed year for us and inshallah I will found my other half.

    Salam everyone, Recently, brother @Ibn al-Hussain has announced that he is leaving ShiaChat. Most of us here know that this brother is a veteran on this site, and without a doubt has been one of the most knowledgable people on this site. I really do hope that the brother reconsiders this decision, and at the very least I hope he does come and visit the site even if it is only once or twice a month. I have personally benefited from many of his posts, and I am truly grateful for many of his insights and his takes on many topics. I thought that as a tribute to the brother I would link to some of his posts that I have come across that I consider to be among the best on ShiaChat (and maybe even the english language). One thing you may notice in a lot of these discussions is that the brother isn't even saying his own opinion, but is simply asking questions and getting you to start critically thinking. That is something that I have taken away from his posts and I am sure many of you have as well. Don't be sheep that just listens to and accepts whatever is said on the pulpits. Be critical thinkers. To the brother: Thank you for giving up your valuable time for all these years and blessing us with your vast knowledge. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) keep you steadfast on your journey in seeking knowledge, and reward you for all of your efforts. Khuda Hafiz!

    Hoarder home v Showroom home

    Umm.. I like things organised and neatly arranged. I think I have a bit of OCD. Clutter drives me crazy and seems to drain all energy out of me. This doesn't mean my house is spotless. I have kids and I let them create a mess as long as they leave my room alone. We have a detailed decluttering/tidying up session every Friday night and I do one mini cleanup of room every weekday. I also try to tidy up on the go, like quickly arranging the kitchen shelves while waiting for the kettle to boil or picking up a thing or two to put back in its place whenever I get up to leave the room. My home is far from clean, we live in an area that is very dusty. You do a thorough cleaning in the morning and by afternoon there would be a layer of dust on every surface. I read somewhere on the internet some time back 'A place for everything and everything in its place' . It serves as a good indicator for hoarding. If I buy something new and cannot designate a place for it I know I am hoarding and I either need to stop buying or throw away a few things. @Propaganda_of_the_Deed I read somewhere(lol, yes I read up a lot of housekeeping stuff) that if you want a room to appear neat and tidy focus on keeping the surfaces empty. Your living room looks very cosy MashaAllah, if you clear only the tables the room will immediately start looking neat.

    A good point in the right direction has to be Al-Sahifa al-Sajjadiyya by the 4th Imam Ali ibn al Hussain, Zainul Abidin, al Sajjad ((عليه السلام)). Think of the emotional trauma he experienced and lived with after witnessing numerous relatives perish and be mistreated during and after Karbala. He devoted himself fully to his Lord, he had no desire for worldly power and you really sense how much he surrendered to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in his beautiful heart-felt supplications.

    We have lots of Shia scholars, lectures, resources available online and offline. To listen to non-Shia ones (for knowledge/Aqeedah) is utter foolishness. This should be an eye-opener for those Shias who are fan of some Sunni scholars.

    I don't know

    About 6 months ago I lost my mind I don’t know how to explain it but I can’t think clearly like the way I use to I lost my memory my knowledge my mindset and my personality I don’t really know how it happened and I’ve been having panic attacks and mental break downs the for almost half a year almost everyday I don’t know why this happened it was after Ramadan I remember being a good person and religious and trying to get closer to Allah and this happened all of a sudden I’ve been making Duas non stop and taking medication and trying to convince myself that Allah is helping me but I’ve relaized that I’m just lying to myself...I’ve experienced stuff like this many times the past few years and gotten over it but this is the worst I’m to the point where I feel like I just hate Allah and don’t want to pray anymore and I feel like he’s just ignoring me or he’s not real this is really serious I don’t know what to do

    Islam is not a religion which teaches against being wealthy. Presupposing one pays Zakat (if applicable) and Khums (if meeting the threshold) - what exactly is the problem? If we had an ummah of faqeer, poor people, how can anyone be of practical, financial use to others and helping the downtrodden? Imam Zainul Abideen (عليه السلام) used to go around undercover with a sack of food and distributing it to the poor. We also have supplications for rizq or provisions. The problem is when people see wealth as an ends rather than means. It is honestly how one spends. Granted it is a lot easier to be distracted with temptations of the dunya and to forget the akhirah. But we should not have an attitude that wealth in itself is inherently wrong.

    More People + Posts = Less Quality

    I do not understand the purpose of this thread. Is it subliminal bashing and shaming people? Are we sitting here giving statements about people's level of Imaan and their intentions when it's been explicitly stated in the Qur'an that only Allah knows what's in the hearts of people. @The Green Knight Imam Ali (عليه السلام) isn't here and neither is Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) This is the time of Imam e Zamana(عليه السلام) and when he reappears there are going to a lot of surprises over which people reject him(عليه السلام) and which people he (عليه السلام) rejects. Never in the history of Islam have results been a deciding factors, it's always been the efforts made in the way of Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) What constructive things have you done on ShiaChat since starting this thread. If you are going to point towards the narrations you shared I don't think they were delivered in a tone which would bring people closer to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) We shall grant that (eternal) abode of the hereafter to those who intend neither high-handedness nor mischief on Earth, and such end is (the best reward) for the righteous" (Qur'an, 28:83).

    Divisive Labelling

    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلَا نِسَاءٌ مِّن نِّسَاءٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ ۖ وَلَا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَلَا تَنَابَزُوا بِالْأَلْقَابِ ۖ بِئْسَ الِاسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الْإِيمَانِ ۚ وَمَن لَّمْ يَتُبْ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [other] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one's] faith. And whoever does not repent - then it is those who are the wrongdoers. 49/11 Ever since I joined ShiaChat close to 2 months ago, I have noticed a trend amongst some members who freely and carelessly throw around and attach derogatory and often offensive labels on other members or groups of people they do not agree with. As much as this diversionary tactic shows their lack of a substantive argument, hence their desperate need to deflect by discrediting the person or group through name calling and personal attacks. It is a very serious issue within our communities that needs addressing. As immature as their behaviour might be, this sort of blind labelling with emotionally charged labels to discredit the holder of different views is in fact vey dangerous because it's not only discriminatory but also leads to a culture of hate. When an individual or people (because of their different views) are grouped and labelled as being: Cultists Backward Uneducated British Shiism Anti Iran agendists USA/Zionist/KSA propagators Pro munafiqeen Love(er) of munafiqeen Akhbaris Lanatis Shirazis And even Non Muslims !! There is some serious reflection that needs to be done. What defies belief is that the ones who happily throw around such divisive labels are the ones pretending to support 'unity'! I don't need to point fingers at anyone because they and everyone else knows who they are. One last word; your abuse only reflects your own weakness and your distance from Haqq.

    Spiritual Highs

    Al-Islam.org has a good collection of books on Irfan and spirituality. I would suggest you go through them. Dr..Farrokh Sekaleshfar's lectures are very good too. There is no quick fix, one remedy for all type of an answer to the question you asked. You will have to find the answer yourself -your own way of knowing and getting close to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) A few general things I can suggest are:Start praying Salat ul layl -be in wudhu all day and night.

    Is Rumi considered a heretic?

    Truly saddening. Forget love but the one who has even the slightest bit of soft-heartedness towards those who oppressed the ahlul-bayth (a) can forget about the shafa'at of Hazrat Sayyida Fatima (sa) in the afterlife (I paraphrase this from a great scholar, pm for details).

    The Dream Women - In my opinion

    Salaam, (This is serious, I'm aware that there are some humorous replies on this thread, this reply isn't one of them) So I just want to start of by discussing my expectations of a woman. I think that it's important to care more about the personality of a woman rather than her looks. For the appearance then, personally for me it doesn't really matter if she has stretch marks, cellulite, a bigger body, smaller "parts" etc.. But then in turn I would like it if she overlooked certain things about my looks too... For her personality I would like her to be shy and quiet with others, but loud and confident with me... And hopefully understanding of my sense of humour, this is very important because humour = happiness which strengthens the relationship, people shouldn't be sad and stressed rather they should be smiling and joyful. And she should have a lot of love for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) & the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) I believe that if you truly have these two things then you can be a really good Muslim (because if you really have this love then you will pray on time, learn about religion, do all the wajib acts, refrain from sin and overall you will be a good person: being generous, kind, charitable etc). I would like her to be always be happy and smiling, generally a very cute, carefree and playful personality is ideal... Omg I'm tearing up rn because that is truly my dream woman.... The next point may bring some arguments but I'll try to explain it properly. I would prefer it if I earned all the money for the house and she stayed at home and looked after children. And the money? It would be both of ours and I would provide everything she needed since she would be working hard too. She would not be oppressed or anything, but it's just that after living in a household where my mum stays at home, it's difficult to imagine it any other way and I would like it if my family could be raised in this way too.. For those of you who don't know, I studied child psychology for a bit and I can't express how important it is that children have a warm, safe and loving environment growing up, this is something that I think can only be achieved if the wife stays at home and helps the children grow. I'm sure raising good children is liked by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and this would be a good way of doing it... Ws

Im in a bewilderment of webs and mazed pathways chemical interactions imbalances everywhere mind and body I sigh I sighed I seal I sealed that key to the lock I turned it, clipped Didnt throw it away, NO! I swallowed it, with the shame my stomach churned with the poison that it just engulfed. I pile I piled I reel I reeled all that pain and the whip the burn and the stiff… bones that finally cracked and made some noise! Oh, God, Thankyou. It opened with your mercy that I always failed to see though, I believed I apologise I apologised I believe I believed.

    Hoarder home v Showroom home

    Maybe the reason we think it is normal to have showroom homes is because people whose houses are not perfect are embarrassed to invite anyone over. Maybe if we all just accepted ourselves and our homes as they are and shared them with our friends, we would all feel better.

    Walaykum as Salam, If you are knowledgeable enough, explain things to her on three occasions. If she will still insist in living with her kufr beliefs, then leave her to be. On the Day, she will answer for her intentions, deeds, acts and thoughts, and if warned beforehand, the judgment will be more severe.

    Munkar and Nakir

    It's not about knowing the answer to these questions, which every Muslim can memorise and parrot back while sitting in the comfort of their homes. It's more about the spiritual state and degree of Imaan of a person. Would our souls still be strong enough after having experienced the trauma of separation from the bodies in which they resided during our entire worldly life? Had we spent time thinking of and reflecting upon our physical death and time in grave while we were in dunya? Enough time that now we are finally in our grave it doesn't make us scared and upset to the level that we forget who our Lord is? What was the instinctive response of our souls to the difficulties of dunya?Was it to turn to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Imam (عليه السلام) for help and guidance for every need and want? Did we spend every second of our time in the dunya being God conscious? If we have answered yes to the last two we can hope that our souls will turn to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Imam (عليه السلام) in that very difficult time too.

    Salam, Growing up we had a poster like this in one of my grandparent's home, handwritten in Urdu by my great grandfather and framed in wood. It was displayed in a prominent place. I remember standing there studying it on many occasions, at others I just stole a cursory glance passing by. Either way it helped me a great deal in acquiring the basic knowledge about the Ahlebayt(عليه السلام). Many of the important dates unconsciously stuck in my memory and other facts,like so many of our Imams (عليه السلام) being poisoned,aroused in me an interest to study more about their lives. For some time now I had been wanting to make a similar table for my children.I made it in English for obvious reasons.I plan to print it out and put in their room and hopefully they will imbibe and memorise or at least be familiar with the basic facts about the lives of Masoomen (عليه السلام). Since this is an area where sadly lots of us grownups are lacking too(from personal experience many of the Shias don't know the names of mothers of Imams(عليه السلام) or where are all of the Imams (عليه السلام) buried) I thought I would share it here. I made it on excel. With the ShiaChat file upload limits the quality might not be very good and since I enlarged it for sharing here,it's in two parts.(if anyone can suggest anything better, you are welcome) Coloured in pink(Imams 6-12) is the era of Abbasid caliphs.All of Imams (عليه السلام) during that time period(except the 12th (عليه السلام)) were martyred through poisoning by their own cousins,the Abbasid Caliphs.

    Aww I’m so sorry to hear about that. I’m sure it must have been very scary. I would though like to meet @notme, @Hameedeh, @ShiaMan14, @2Timeless, @Bakir, @ali_fatheroforphans In real life.
