  1. Salam, Once again I am back with the same question that I had asked some months ago. Can someone please suggest me how to send donations for Syrians? If any Syrian reading this and has some contacts in SYRIA then please send me a private message. If not then kindly suggest me a Shia (only) organization based in Syria/Lebanon. Many Thanks. John
  2. Brother Mahdi Thank you so much for the link you have shared but I don't know I am still confused about my ghusl method.
  3. Thank you so much for your reply brother King. Actually I forgot to mention this but I do step out of a water a bit after washing my right side but Thank you for mentioning that. The reason I got suspicious on my ghusl procedure is because it is said that as soon as the person is in the shower then he/she should enter his/her head+neck and wash that first. Then the right side and then the left side of the body. So I was thinking what if there are impurities on the body? Should I not PAK my body first in this case? or even I have no impurities on my body but I just want to wash my b
  4. Moments ago I was reading about issues related to Ghusl-e-Tartibi but then I realized that may be, just may be I am doing my both ghusls (wajib and janabt) in a wrong manner. Therefore I thought I should post ''MY METHOD'' of ghusl-e-tartibi here so some brother would correct me if founds any mistakes. As the matter is of extreme importance therefore I hope you will not mind my lengthy details. 1. First I open the shower mixer and while standing under the water I wash my body from head to toes. 2. Then I shampoo my hairs and wash my whole body like arms, chest, legs etc with th
  5. Thank you so much brother! This is a good advice. I will definitely make contact to Iranian embassy first and see what they say. If they don't collect any donations then I will contact Ayatollah Sistani's office. Take care!
  6. This is the reason I posted here so if someone guide me to the right (SHIA )organization. The country I live has no Syrian embassy.
  7. Salam everyone! This might not be the right place to ask this here but I am planning to donate some amount for people in Syria but I don't know whom I should contact. I would really appreciate if someone can suggest me either a humanitarian group or other trusted organization collecting donations for people in Syria. Many Thanks
  8. Salam and peace to everyone! Once upon a time in my childhood I heard from an aalim during a majlis that the mankind despite achieving marvelous achievements in science and technology has failed to invent any device that can detect or identify a potential terrorist. Though there are lie detectors but their authenticity is always questionable and a trained terrorist can easily deceive those during interrogations. According to allama only and the only way to identify a potential terrorist is to ask him about his opinions on the "Walaya of IMAM ALI A.S and HIS position in Islam". If the face
  9. Thank you colargol. At the moment I am actually focusing on explaining her the knowledge of GOD and general basic concepts. I am well aware of the fact that some Muslim groups(Salafis, Sunnis etc) tries very hard to explain everything about Islam when a non Muslim eventually only sits with them over a coffee table. They desperately wish and expect non Muslims to be converted to Islam in only hours without realizing that they are actually pushing the person away from the religion. But Thanks to Almighty GOD because my faith rely on the love and the HOUSE of AHLULBAYT A.S thus I am blessed wi
  10. Thank you YA13, for your reply. It's actually amazing that we are in the same country and I am certain you share the same ethnicity as my wife do. You have perfectly described the people's religious beliefs here and their general attitude towards the religion in this country. To understand you more better, can you please explain me about what you meant by 'using nature of Islam as a selling point'? I would also like to say that I am not a person to preach someone anything (particularly religion) unless if someone begins to show his/her interest. Of course I explain her small little things o
  11. Hi! I believe the title of my topic explains why I am writing this. My wife is a European born and is a believer of GOD but she is not a practical christian. I have been telling her few things about our religion and specifically about Shia Islam but I am not quite sure from where should I formally begin. As the month of Muharram is approaching I am thinking that I should take her with me to the Ashura but before that I need to introduce her with the basic concepts etc. For this I need your guidance or any useful information which you think can help me on this.I would like to hear speciall
  12. Thank you so much for such brief explanation and I agree with most of the things you have mentioned. I personally condemn all kinds of provocation, agitation and insults against Sunnis and in fact against either Christians or Jews also. You are absolutely right that we Shias are blessed with ''Itaat'' which others don't have at all and I really admire you for mentioning this brilliant concept. Yes, one cannot raise weapons unless the Marja issue the ''Fatwa'' to do that, but despite being killed for the past 30 years and the Shias in Pakistan being displaced from their homes why the Marjas a
  13. Yeah! Consider yourself lucky if they haven't get close to Baghdad yet. It was a universal shame for Iraqi Army to lost control of Mosul despite being 30,000 in numbers and Isis were only 800. It's the Holy Shrine of MUHAMMAD IBN MUSA AL KAZIM A.S who was the son of Imam Musa Kazim A.S. I don't understand why is it hard for some people to read names correctly.
  14. People of books? You think of me a non Muslim? I am a Shia Muslim but yes not a stereo type. And this is the dilemma we as a Muslim throw our own basket of our own garbage on non Muslims. We never accept our own faults.
  15. Who am I to sympathize Shias or anyone else? I never said or believe that all Sunnis are terrorist though we have fundamental differences.
  16. Before I begin, few announcements, I know you are not feeling good at the moment, some of you are already furious right after seeing the title and are now supposing me as an agent, infiltrator in the community or a wahhabi or bla bla bla. Please just hold your loose horses and continue reading. Don't act like Zionists whose mission is to turn and inflame every single criticism against Israel into anti-Semitism or racial discrimination against the ''Peaceful'' Jews of the world. But yes you are right, my tone is harsh, my words are strong and this is all because when I heard the news today.

  18. Nice question. It depends what are people's preferences, some come to EU or any other Western country for seeking asylum and than spent their whole lives living on social services which in my opinion is wrong. Rather than finding jobs and doing some positive activities they prefer spending time in criticizing Western societies in tiny little groups as they used to do in their home countries. On the other hand, I also see a large number of people (immigrants as students or skilled labours) coming to West for their better future, in the form of world class education, superior health services,
  19. This is right and of course it should be but is this a permanent solution? What bother's me the most is the fact that Shia's and sunni's have ideology differences, huge differences and because of that one has to surrender. For example, Saudi's sunni or wahabi whatever majority Shia suffers, Iran again Shia majority, sunni's suffer, you would not be astonish to hear the first ever '' Anti Shia alliance'' this year in Indonesia ruling ''jihad'' against Shia's. You think we can work with them? Now I am asking again and again no suppositions, like we should or what we could the point what is ha
  20. Ayatullah Khamnei ( Rahbar-e-Moazzam ) clearly said : " Who ever tried to provoke hate in between shia and sunni are neither shia nor sunni , but culprit of Anti Islam whether he knows it or not " You see, I asked you not to mention any political statements, forgive me for this but quotes like the above one sounds very nice and felt warm but it takes few hours to forget it and an small incident to destroy it. And please I am not intended to provoke Shia, sunni ''unity,'' but where is this mysterious unity, tell me and show me at national level, please no street examples.
  21. Hi, I would like to ask you to please define the religion of those who martyred IMAM HUSSAIN A.S and HIS COMPANIONS. I mean some people argue and define the killers of IMAM A.S as a hypocrite (munafiqeen) instead of recognizing them as Muslims. According to my own little knowledge and some bits of sense, I believe that those who martyred IMAM HUSSAIN A.S and HIS companions were also ''Muslims''(may GOD curse them all), as they were also representing their own version of Islam which actually today we can see in the form of talibans, isis, or Wahhabi's etc. And now I need your opinion about t
  22. Absolutely right, Ulema like this create such a hoax in the tiny little minds of so called ''Shia brothers.'' Personally I don't see anything as shia brothers, yes may be on chat rooms, in news or in fake views. We are all divided shamelessly.
  23. Indeed is a tragic day and may GOD give patience to those who lost their beloved ones. Despite the fact this is a horrific tragedy in the history of the country but in my opinion the whole nation is corrupted both mentally and morally. Not just Pakistani politicians but common people are reluctant to condemn and unable to unite against those barbarians, instead they curse India, America or Israel. This is such a supreme level of insanity.
  24. Being a young member,...(by young I mean in sense of membership in fact by age also probably :shifty:) I totally agree with you and your raised issues. Unfortunately it is a dilemma of Shia's all over the world that they are not united unlike UAE, US or UK. lol... In my poor little advice any member or user commenting over the limits using disgraceful and humiliating speech against the marjah's or other great leaders should be instantly banned. Your 2nd issue Nationalism: Honestly this one is really very funny for me. Believe me or not its not just the Shia's in fact all of the Muslims
