  1. (bismillah) (salam) I think I've read that book sometime ago. It contains also a topic about the best and worst times of a day (whats the Arabic term for this?). I've been looking for a copy of the book but haven't seen it again. Will somebody please tell where we can find this book online? What's its real title? Thanks ammarjasir3355
  2. (bismillah) (salam) Are you sure its really haram? Without any condition? Is Friday prayer considered fardh? Will someone please give a scholarly answer to this and my other questions regarding Jum'ah prayer. 1. In sunni dominated areas we shias are always in danger of being in trouble if we join their congregation prayer, and we have no mosque of our own; so we are always forced to pray at home. Are we committing any sin if we dont join the Jum'ah congregation prayer? 2. If Jum'ah is Fardh why is it only required for males? 3. What was the condition of performing the Jum'ah prayer during
  3. Salaam... Again let me go back to my main point of querry: presuming that scientific evedence will prove that urine has therapeutic value especially for problematic ailments, will it still be considered haraam? Regarding that hadith, I suggest you donot bother yourself anymore. This is one of the usual fabricated hadiths. ammarjasir3355 :)
  4. Salaam :) Thanks for this referral brother. I do hope others would have the time also to read wikipedia before making some conclusions. May I make the following points clear: 1, My main point is to know the religious basis of urine therapy. I therfore enjoin brothers/sisters not to make personal comments without legal (shariah) basis. 2. It is understood that I am not advocating that everybody should use urine to cure ailments when some remedies are readily available. If it is allowed by religion and granting urine can be proven of therapeutic value, then it can help many poor people or those
  5. :) Salamun Alaykum... :) Let me share my honest thoughts on this topic. First, practicing polygamy or doing mutah should not be an issue at all. It is tolerated by Islam, isn't it? As long as the intention is honest (not for mere purpose of promiscuity), I believe it is halal for men to do it and therefore there is no need to seek permission of first nikah wife, althogh it would be the most ideal scenario if the wife consents sincerely and honestly. Forgive me sis, but I dont see any reason for putting a condition in the marriage contract prohibiting something which is allowed by Allah (polyg
  6. Salaam brother Zenadine Wow! Your advise was just superb, fantastic, practical and I believe Islamic! How I wish I can read some more comments from you about other important topics. Keep it up brother, may your tribe increase. ammarjasir3355
  7. Salamun alykum Now we are getting closer to it, that urine of some animals can be taken if used for medical treatment. Maybe at the time this verdict was given this issue about human urine was not yet seriously discussed. How I wish someone can help us verify this issue from our respected ulama. I really dont know how to contact them. Please help us find the answer (please no personal opinion without legal basis!). As to Zareen's comment that " Urine is a mechanism to flush out toxins": are not toxins precisely the trigger to produce antitoxins to cure diseases ( the mechanism behind active
  8. (bismillah) (salam) Many articles have been written alledging that URINE can be a cure for many ailments like asthma, cancer, diabetes, etc. Don't we consider the urine haram, thats why it invalidates wudhu? If it is haram, and if it is true it can cure some ailments, what does our religion say about it? Some authority please clarify this. Thanks and salaam ammarjasir3355 :)
  9. "And if you obey most of those in the Earth, they will lead you astray from Allah's Way; they follow but conjecture and they only lie." (bismillah) (salam) The simple question to ask is: why is it that, inspite of our claim that Islam is the only true religion, muslims are in total disarray, are feared, hated and subject to all kinds of suspicions? The answer is simple: Simply because most so-called Muslims exist only in name, and are not true followers of Islam. Most muslims have deviated far far away from the true teachings of Prophet Mohammad SAWA. Most so-called Muslims have not fulfil
  10. (bismillah) (salam) Can someone please tell me when is start of Ramadhan in the Philippines and where can we possibly get a prayer schedule including fajar/sunrise/sunset times? Is the moonsighting.com ok to be used by Shia? Do shia have any website re Islamic calendar? By the way, who compose this so-called Hilal Committee and which country do they belong or are based? Allah bless us all in this Holy month. ammarjasir3355
  11. Some Alims say that it is not fardh to establish Jumu'ah but if it is established (i.e. your local mosque has regular Jumuah prayers) then it is a Wajib prayer. (bismillah) Salaam, Thanks to Dhulfiqar and Amir Ramadhan. But sorry to say that my main question has not been answered,i.e. should we or should we NOT perform zuhur after attending the Jumuah? Those who say that jumuah is enough contend that jumuah prayer substitute the zuhur prayer and that doing both jumuah and zuhur tantamounts to doing six fardh prayers on friday. Sunnis especially in the urban centers cater to this i
  12. (bismillah) (salam) Will somebody please enlighten me on some questions regarding Friday Congregational prayer? In our country, the Philippines, especially in the rural areas (where I live), questions regarding "Jumuat Prayer" have caused a lot of problem, discussions and animosities. On the one hand are native folks who maintain that the Zuhur prayer must be performed even if one has joined the Jumuat prayer. On the other hand, especially in the urban centers which are dominated by so-called learned preachers (sunnis of course) we are told that there is no need to perform Zuhur
  13. (bismillah) (salam) When you donot carry the torch of truth you will always be torn apart. As usual, those wahabis put forth fatwas without any basis and just like most of their sunni brothers, when they are clobbered in a discussion with a Shia, they will hurl all sorts of invectives against their shi'a counterpart. Pity our women in the sunni society. Inspite of the fact that Qur'anic and Prophetic sayings enjoin high regards and respect for women, our sunni society continue to disregard the rights of their women, giving all sorts of prohibitions as if only men have been gifted with the
  14. (bismillah) (salam) Reading on some of the comments, its a great wonder why some shiite members are against cleric rule in Iraq. If the opposition came from a sunni brother then I can understand because in the first place they are the minority in Iraq altho they lorded it over the shiite majority for so many years until the shameful exit of the despotic Saddam. I thought we shiites believe that the real government is: Of Allah, By the Prophets/Imams and For Allah ? That the real democracy, and hence a just government or laws is one which is contained in the Qur'an? If we doubt the capabili
  15. (bismillah) (salam) :) EID MUBARAK to all! May Allah continue to shower HIS bountiful blessings on us not only today but in the years to come. I am overwhelmed by all those who shared their thoughts in this topic. As you know I feel very fortunate this year I found this website. I learned a lot of things. I'm sure this is one of the best blessings given me by Allah. We are less fortunate in the Philippines which is a predominantly catholic country. Muslims here are just a minority splintered in the different areas. Shia muslims are only very few who ironically face indifference not from th
  16. (bismillah) (salam) I thought it is against Islamic teachings to talk ill of a dead person? I dont know ARAFAT except from the media. If its true he amassed billions at the expense of his people, who among the world muslim leaders did not commit the same sin? At least, among all so called muslim world leaders, ARAFAT was the most visible leader in the struggle against the zionist oppression (outside of the IRI leaders of course!). If he was bad surely his own people would have long overthrown him. So if we cannot praise him now that he's dead, can we not at least render some respects by n
  17. (bismillah) (salam) To Pearl of Wisdom and Iman; Thanks for your timely reminders. Alhamdulillah I was able to do this particular namaz just on time for the first time in my life. At least my conscience no longer bothers me so much now. Happy EIDL FITRI to you all! ;) ammarjasir3355
  18. (bismillah) (salam) Can someone please elaborate the basic essentials of Sadaqatl Fitri (is it the same as Zakat Fitri?) especially on the following aspects: 1. cash or kind, quantity; can it be more (or less?) 2. who should give 3. who should receive 4. time to offer; any ritual or duas when you give it? 5. other important aspects. Thanks and advance Happy Eidl Fitri Al Mubarak to all! ^_^ ammarjasir3355
  19. (bismillah) (salam) Thanks to all who gave info... But since I have no marja yet, and since we lack authorized religious authority in the Philippines, can someone help us determine when should our Eid be here in the Philippines. I believe our country is ahead by at least five hours of most middle east countries. So far we heard that most groups (majority sunni) will have their Eid prayer tomorrow, saturday, Nov. 14. ammarjasir3355
  20. (bismillah) (salam) So when do we celebrate Eidl Fitri? Hope someone can inform us the date of Eid in the Philippines. What about Zakat Fitr, can someone enlighten us on its basic aspect (quantity, recipient, time to be given, etc)? Happy EIDL FITRI MUBARAK to all! ^_^ ammarjasir3355
  21. (bismillah) (salam) There is this man who once attended a local Shi'ah madrash here in the Philippines and went to Iran for further Islamic studies. He spent only less than 6 months in Iran, stopped schooling and nobody knew where he went. Some years later, he came back to the Philippines and began preaching in the rural areas. At first glance he appears to be preaching the Ahlulbayt teachings. He claims that his aquida is "muhaqquiqin". But we are doubtful if he's really teaching Islamic tenets, much more Shi'ah principles. Some of his teachings which we firmly believe are not in accord w
  22. (bismillah) (salam) :) Alhamdulillah, Allah finally sent an angel in the person of Ailia to soothe my bothered conscience. All the quotes u mentioned precisely answered the exact situation I am in... ALLAHU AKBAR...ALLAHU AKBAR...ALLAHU AKBAR. Actually, in desperation, I fasted already this morning. Just to be sure, shall I break my fast, since by all indications, it is void anyway? Thank you so much Ailia for the enlightenment. May Allah shower you and your family HIS bountiful blessings. With salaam, :) ammarjasir3355
  23. (bismillah) (salam) I am really confused and in dilemma whether to fast or not; may I urgently request some learned brothers to share me their thoughts? Here's my situation: Days before the start of fasting my wife and I visited our daughter whose place qualified us (more than 22 kms) as musafirs.We had no idea how many days we will stay with our daughter who requested us to help her with some problems. One week before the start of fasting, my father in law died, so we had to rush to their place which is farther away. We still had no idea when we can go home. Naturally i did not fast. On
  24. Salamun alaykum, Thanks so much sis Hajar and the others for sharing your ideas. But some related questions on this topic: what are the consequences of burying a muslim in a non-muslim cemetery? Will it cause any suffering to the dead in the barzakh and the qiyamat? And those responsible for such act (the liviing relatives), are they liable also? Wa salaam, ammarjasir3355
