  1. A companion of Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (عليه السلام) complained about the ill-treatment given to him by his relatives, “My own brother as well as my paternal cousins are harassing me. They have snatched the house that rightfully belonged to me and have given me only a room to live in. If I complain to the government, I shall be able to recover all my property. Imam (عليه السلام) said, “Be patient, everything will be alright.” The man returned satisfied. In the year 131 A.H. there was a terrible plague. All the relatives of the man perished. Thereafter when he arrived before Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (عليه السلام), he (Imam (عليه السلام) asked, “How are your relatives?” The man said, “By Allah all of them are dead.” The Imam (عليه السلام) said, “Their deaths have been due to their ill-treatment and Qat’a ar-Rahm of relatives like you, not recognizing your right and cutting off relationships.” [Greater Sins ◾Vol 1]
  2. Sub7anAllah I was just reading a hadith today that said a Muslim or believer gets punished in this very world for his sins. And in the Holy Qur'an it says some people get away with doing wrong not because God is rewarding them, but because He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is giving them respite until the Day of Judgement to build the case against them from their deeds. It may be that non Muslims get less of an account (or a Muslim that has more bad in them than good) because they have already lost both worlds or it may be different depending on the situation and the cause of effect/action one afflicts on himself from his actions. Either way, it is all dependant on Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
  3. Wa Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmatullahe Wa Barakatu, of course w iyyakum be khayr: بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم وَالْمُحْصَنَاتُ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ إِلَّا مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ ۖ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ ۚ وَأُحِلَّ لَكُم مَّا وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَن تَبْتَغُوا بِأَمْوَالِكُم مُّحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَافِحِينَ ۚ فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُم بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً ۚ وَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا تَرَاضَيْتُم بِهِ مِن بَعْدِ الْفَرِيضَةِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise. وَمَن لَّمْ يَسْتَطِعْ مِنكُمْ طَوْلًا أَن يَنكِحَ الْمُحْصَنَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ فَمِن مَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُم مِّن فَتَيَاتِكُمُ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِإِيمَانِكُم بَعْضُكُم مِّن بَعْضٍ فَانكِحُوهُنَّ بِإِذْنِ أَهْلِهِنَّ وَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ مُحْصَنَاتٍ غَيْرَ مُسَافِحَاتٍ وَلَا مُتَّخِذَاتِ أَخْدَانٍ فَإِذَا أُحْصِنَّ فَإِنْ أَتَيْنَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ فَعَلَيْهِنَّ نِصْفُ مَا عَلَى الْمُحْصَنَاتِ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ ذَٰلِكَ لِمَنْ خَشِيَ الْعَنَتَ مِنكُمْ وَأَن تَصْبِرُوا خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ If any of you have not the means wherewith to wed free believing women, they may wed believing girls from among those whom your right hands possess: And Allah hath full knowledge about your faith. Ye are one from another: Wed them with the leave of their owners, and give them their dowers, according to what is reasonable: They should be chaste, not lustful, nor taking paramours: when they are taken in wedlock, if they fall into shame, their punishment is half that for free women. This (kind of marriage) is for those who fear falling into evil; but to have patience it would be better for you. And Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. - The Holy Qur'an | Surah An-Nisa Ayah 34-35 صدق الله العلي العظيم
  4. The Holy Qur'an states that it is for those who seek chastity, not lust. And that to wait is even better.
  5. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته Just a suggestion, as we have an option to view most viewed posts, most recent posts, etc maybe it would be a good option to include most liked posts as a great way to finding content. جزاك الله خير
  6. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته What are the 100% legitimate charities that donate most if not all of the money they gain to their cause that are run by our Shia brothers and sisters, or others for matters such as the Yemen Crisis, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Kashmir, Palestine, and any other matter. JazakAllah Kheir.
  7. I wonder where some people get their "Islam" from?
  8. Could you please quote the narration once more?
  9. And a burdened soul cannot bear the burden of another and if one weighed down by burden should cry for (another to carry) its burden, not aught of it shall be carried, even though he be near of kin. You warn only those who fear their Lord in secret and keep up prayer; and whoever purifies himself, he purifies himself only for (the good of) his own soul; and to Allah is the eventual coming. - The Holy Quran | Surah Al-Fatir (The Originator) Verse 35:18 As for your second point, in Islam we do not get sins when we are really young and do not have a certain awareness in which we are accountable for when we reach a certain age. And in regards to your situation, Allah Swt is The Most Merciful, The Most Understanding. It is a shame when there are certain members of the household that cannot fulfil their appropriate role.
  10. So all Shia are going to heaven no matter what they do? A Sheikh told me this is not true and they will be judged like everyone else as if the opposite was true and they will go to heaven without any accountability then this goes against the justice of Allah Swt.
  11. What are the narrations that tell us the benefits of working and earning a lawful income? JazakAllah Kheir.
  12. There are some people who say "before I do something I say that I am better than everyone else." The last time I heard this was when someone told me "This is my mindset and I like it and it gives me "confidence" and "self-esteem"". Imam Ali (As) did said that to be optimistic is to be successful. But would this fear to falling in vanity and not thanking/remembering Allah Swt for everything? There are other narrations that say that we should thank Allah Swt if we do something good and that self conceit and being pleased with one's self is not good. There are narrations in contrast that say that a believer is happy with the deeds that he does. The Quran Al-Kareem also talks about people that think they are self sufficient and their own actions seem pleasing to them in a way that is condescending. What do you think about this? I do not think the Ahlulbayt (As) had this mentality so it is possible that we should also not have this mentality. جزاك الله خير للجوابات
  13. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته There are some people that say that the essence of Allah Swt are His names. Others say that Allah Swt is separate from His Names. For example this narration: Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn `Isam al-Kulayni and `Ali ibn Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn `Imran al-Daqqaq (may Allah have mercy on them both) both said: Muhammad ibn Ya`qub al-Kulayni said, on the authority of `Ali ibn Ibrahim, on the authority of his father, on the authority of al-Nadr ibn Suwayd, on the authority of Hisham ibn al-Hakam that I asked Abu `Abd Allah al-Sadiq (AS) about the names of Allah, the Mighty and High, and their derivations. Hence, he replied, Allah is derived from Ilah (God). The word Ilah requires a server [Ma’luh], The name is other than the named. Therefore, whoever serves the name without the meaning then he disbelieves, and has not served anything. Whoever serves the name, and the meaning, he has associated, and has served both of them. Whoever serves the meaning without the name has embraced Divine Unity. Have you understood, O Hisham? He says, I said: “Elaborate for me.” He (AS) responded, For Allah, the Mighty and High, are Ninety Nine Names. If the name was the named then every name would have been a god. However Allah, the Mighty and High, has a meaning for all of these names which apply to Him, and all of them are other than Him. O Hisham! “Bread” is a name of a food; “water” is a name of a drink; “cloth is a name of a material, and “fire” is a name of ignition. Do you understand, O Hisham? Do you understand in such a way that you can defend us, and defeat our enemies, the apostates of Allah, and the one who associate other with Allah, the Mighty and High? I replied, “Yes.” He (AS) then said: “May Allah benefit you by it and secure you, O Hisham!” Hisham says, “I swear by Allah, no one could defeat me in debate on the subject of Divine Unity after I stood up from that place.” Source: at-Tawheed by Shaykh Saduq. Are there other hadiths that say for and against to this? Are there scholarly opinions that we can refer too? JazakAllah Kheir.
  14. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته I once read a hadith that said that one of the signs of a believer or a true Muslim is tolerance. Could you please tell me who said it and the reference? JazakAllah kheir.
