  1. Salaam Alaikum, I am curious if the day of Ashura is commemorated in any way in other faiths such as Christianity or Judaism? Did the prophets mention that this is a day of mourning for mankind? I know the Jews also follow the lunar calendar, do they have any special days around the time of Ashura? Thank you. Wasalaam
  2. Alaikum Salaam I think we should engage in discussion with our salafi brothers. By the wisdom and mercy of Allah, the greatest contradiction to their belief system is the episode of martyrdom of Imam Hussain. I was reading a Sunni forum last night, and they were discussing whether or not Yazid (LA) was a good person. A grand mufi (of Saudi I believe) made a statement on television (it's on YouTube) that Imam Hussain was wrong to rise against Yazid (Azoobillah), and that Yazid as a good person (Azoobillah). Another Sunni brought books and books of evidence that Yazid drank, ordered the rape of women in Harrah etc. Yet the response of the their leaders is that we should not judge. Alhumdulilah this defies logic, and I think calm and reasonable discussion is very healthy. I personally believe this sort of discussion is required of us. The message of Hussain is not for our own purification but the transformation of the ummah. Wasalaam.
  3. Salaam Alaikum Brother, I have found from personal experience that this is a problem that can be solved, even prior to marriage. 1) Ask Allah for his help. Visit the mosque often, every day if possible. Strong imaan will provide you the every to change. 2) Lower your gave for women that you walk by in the street. Keep your eyes away from attractive women, even on posters in the street. Just this act, sometimes very hard, will kill your desire if you sustain it. Obviously, the assumption here is that do not watch haram videos or look at haram pictures. If you do then ending this would be point two, followed by lowering your gaze. Becoming close with Allah, and lowering your gaze as sacrifice for the love of Allah will eventually remove this desire to commit the acts you have described. Wet dreams do not go away for life. Your body is producing chemicals that must be discarded, but if they only occur once every 40 days, I think you would agree that this is manageable. Wasalaam.
  4. Your story brings tears to my eyes, thank you for sharing.
