  1. These numbers only represent the names and are not the actual names, thus they do not carry the ruling of the names. The thing to keep in mind about the tattoo is that if it forms a layer on top of the skin then it is not allowed because it will block the water from reaching your skin during wudhu / ghusl (unless you plan on never needing to do ghusl ;)).
  2. Salaamun Alaykum, In marrying a virgin woman, whether Muslim or from Ahlul Kitab, it is necessary to get the consent of her father or paternal grandfather, if she is not independent. However, it is precautionarily obligatory to seek their consent [i.e., of the father or the paternal grandfather], even if she is independent. Consent of the woman’s brother, mother, sister or other relations is not required. The consent of the father or the paternal grandfather to marry a virgin woman, who is both adult and sensible, is not required [in the following cases:] if they stop her from m
  3. Salaamun Alaykum sister, Living as we do in the information age, there is no obstacle for us to gain knowledge of the Religion of Allah, as it has come in a narration from the sixth Imam: <Kufa will soon become empty of believers and knowledge will withdraw from it the way a snake coils up. Then it will appear in a city called Qom and Qom will become a mine of learning and excellence, such that there will not be on the earth left anyone who does not have sufficient awareness of the religion; even women in their houses will be able to access the knowledge and that will be close to
  4. Salam, But the point is that the Christians consider the Bible to be infallible because the Holy Spirit which inspired the writers of the New Testament doesn't err and the Jews consider the Torah as the exact revelation received by Moses. So they follow the laws, beliefs and teachings contained in these books as the absolute truth, whereas in reality there is plenty of corruption in them. Thus they go astray and they lead others astray, in this world and the hereafter.
  5. 'Massively corrupted' means that the Scripture in question is no longer the same one that was revealed, because it has been severely tampered with over time: 'Woe, then, to those who write the book with their hands and then say: This is from Allah, so that they may take for it a small price; therefore woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.' (2:79)
  6. The sacred texts of other Divinely revealed religions have become massively corrupted by their followers, thus those religions in their current forms cannot serve what was their intended spiritual purposes. That is not to deny that the other religions in their original form are still effective. But even then Islam is so much more effective and superior to them.
  7. This is a nice point which you make, although it cannot be denied that the major religions of the world have been profoundly corrupted by their followers. Also, even if they had not been corrupted what I said about Islam containing the greatest amount of truth in it would still apply, because the knowledge of Muhammad (saw) and his Family (as) is so much more complete than the knowledge of the previous Prophets: From Imam al-Sadiq(as): Jesus son of Mary was given 2 letters with which he worked, Moses was given 4 letters, Abraham was given 8 letters, Noah was given 15 letters, Adam was giv
  8. The thing to understand about spirituality is that it stems from that which is real, it is not something arbitrary. Because the soul is real (more real than the body) and is common to all human beings. So when we say that Islam is the true religion, it is not about labels, but precisely because Islam has the greatest amount of truth in it compared to other religions - which have undergone such great distortions. And that is why the followers of Islam have the potential to reach much higher levels of spirituality. But that doesn't mean that other religions don't contain any truth in them.
  9. Salam, The narrations talk about the grave and what will happen in it, but it is actually a symbolic reference to the life which people will have in Barzakh. When a person dies they simply transfer in to another body in Barzakh which looks the same as the body they had on earth but is much higher than the earth body and belongs to a realm far vaster and more complex than that of this world. And Barzakh has its own paradise and hell. That is why it is possible to see people who have died in dreams and they can be recognized, and also Barzakh is the realm in which a person's own dreams take
  10. The thing to understand about dreams is that they are very symbolic and thus subjective. But based on what you have said I think that the lions represent forces attacking you in your life, be they internal from your own mind, or external - as we have enemies out there from amongst the jinn and humans. And the fact that you called on Hazrat Abbas and he responded and came and drove away the attack, and that the dream had a good vibe, is all a sign that it was a true dream. So you should take this message from it that just as you called out to Hazrat Abbas in your dream for help and he helped yo
  11. Salaamun Alaykum, It is not haram brother. If it was haram how would people owning businesses make money - they buy at one price and sell for a higher price.
  12. If that was this was the case then who led Iblis astray? The answer is his own nafs led him astray. So Satan and the other shayateen play a secondary role. Even if Satan wasn't there Adam would still have eventually tripped up, because he wasn't perfect like the perfection of the immaculate five, whose names he had seen written on the Arsh of Allah. So the real question which you are asking is that why did Allah make creatures (like humans and jinn) who are free to choose wrong? Why didn't He just make everyone perfect and put them all in to Heaven? And the answer is that by coming down in to
  13. This is a very nice question which you have raised. There are numerous ahadith which speak of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. I will just quote two as a sample: 1- I asked Imam Baqir (as) about a particular saying of Allah, so he said:…perhaps you think that Allah only created this one world! Or you think that Allah didn’t create any mankind other than you?! Yes, by Allah! Allah created a thousand thousand worlds and a thousand thousand Adams, and you are in the last of those worlds and those Adams. (Al-Tawhid & Al-Khisal) 2- From Imam al-Sadiq(as): Beyond this S
