  1. Assalam o aleikum I have heard/ read in various places that the seventh Imam a.s. had 19 or 21 daughters, not one of whom ever got married. a) Can anyone please provide me any authentic sources for this? b) If this is true, do we know why this was so? I mean, why did all these ladies stay unmarried?
  2. Sis notme, should one avoid all store bought cookies and baked products made in the West, that list vanilla as an ingredient? (I specified the bit about having been manufactured in Western countries, because at least in my country, they generally use synthetic vanilla flavoring).
  3. ^open, uninhibited (in a good way) lady. Just helped set my gender straight. Starlight, I was equally confused by Batman's comment, albeit for a different reason:p
  4. Notme, you talking about Meccano by any chance? N awesome thread, baradar_jackson (and contributors)!

  6. Hi. I did not post in your first thread, but wish you guys the best in the future. Regarding this issue, this is just guessing, but some Muslims can be rather uptight about inter-faith marriage. Or, since he sounds rather nice, plus they're also Muslim, perhaps they (or one of them) were also interested in him as a prospective spouse? I just realised that I've written almost the same things Ruq. Rather than delete my post and save you the trouble of reading the same stuff twice, I'll let it stay as testimony to the fact that I sometimes think like someone who is possibly my favourite person o
  7. Thank you everyone who took the time to respond. Hayder M, I think Rashida has pretty much said what I would have in answer. Nocturne, depends on what you mean by 'taking slaves' in your last line. If it is owning them, the fact that the Masoomeen did is enough for me to believe that it is allowed even today. Tendersoul, that's a sweet story. Please share any sources about its authenticity; I'm really hoping there are some valid ones. Ruq, I love the interpretation that you've shared, and want to believe it. But what of the numerous accounts from traditional jurisprudence that indicate otherwi
  8. I'd been trying to find this post for a while, and after suddenly figuring out how to today, I feel like an absolute duH-nce. Anyway, the reason I'd wanted to locate it because i hadnt replied to your input, Sister notme. Thank you for your kind and sensible response :)
  9. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/08/14/world/middleeast/isis-enshrines-a-theology-of-rape.html?referrer= For all the members who believe that slavery is allowed in Islam, as is non-consensual sex with female slaves, is what ISIS is doing to the Yazidi women really wrong? Other than the fact that Shias don't consider them Muslims, of course... But if they were actual, practising Muslims, wouldnt their actions be justifiable? They've actually issued a manifesto about treatment of slavewomen, and from some bits i got to read online, it sounded horribly similar to what I've seen here on SC. This is
  10. Thanks, Batman. Yep, I'm aware of Sayyad Khui's stance, but the precaution eases restrictions for his muqallid ladies. Once again, folks, have there been any marji that have allowed women to keep their feet uncovered in front of namehrams?
  11. Aoa. First, the question I've already asked- do any marji, past or contemporary, allow women to expose their feet before namehrams? I've been told that Ayatullah Saanei does- does anyone know for sure? Also, in a long-ago thread about the hijab of feet, Macisaac stated that there have been three main positions among jurists about the extent of hijab vaajib on women: 1. It is obligatory to cover everything, including the face and hands 2. Obligatory to cover everything, save the face and hands 3. Obligatory to cover everything, except the face, hands and feet AFAIK, modern-day marji pretty mu
  12. Yoel, that's really interesting. I mean, we believe that Judaism and Islam have the same roots, but reminders through examples like these can be fascinating, nonetheless.
  13. I can't access YouTube here, but that's a great idea you're putting to practice, masha'Allah.
  14. The multiquote option is not working for me right now, so please bear with my random shots here. To the persons talking about ptotecting men from sin, why is the onus upon women? Just like it's unfair to bar non-fasting people from being able to purchase food or drink in Ramadan (though folks might challenge this too), it seems strange logic to force hijab on women. Is the abstainer's iman so weak as to be shaken by displays of food, or uncovered hair, for that matter? As for the question about what believers would do when Imam e Zamaan comes and enforces hijab, well- this is a geunine questio
