  1. Just bringing this old topic up...can anyone answer?
  2. Interesting! I wish we could find out the reason behind this!
  3. I wrote to my marja and got the reply: ------------------------------------------------ -----Original Message----- From: Sent: Thursday, December 08, 2011 2:57 PM To: eanswers@najaf.org Subject: Salam alikum, This question is regarding Wuzu after Ghusl Janabat. For past many years, I was under the impression that Ghusl becomes obligatory even if Mazi (precum) comes out. With this belief, I did Ghusl and read my prayers without doing Wuzu. Now, I have come to understand the correct rule that one does not enter the state of janabat when Mazi comes out. My question is that I read many prayers without doing wuzu (because I had done Ghusl), when in fact that Ghusl was not wajib. In this case, would I have to do qadha of these prayers and read them again? Thank you. ------------------------------------------------------------- In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Qadhaa is required Wassalamu Alaykum
  4. Salam alikum, Have you not heard of the Mukhtar Narrative? It should be on top of this list: http://www.shiasource.com/drive/self/iranian-serials-and-films/the-mukhtar-narrative/
  5. Three mustahib ghusl can be substituted for wudhu. 1. Friday Ghusl 2. Ghusl for Eid ul Fitr prayer 3. Ghusl for Eid ul Adha prayer The rule is that if you read a prayer and later on find out that you did not do wudho, then your prayer is invalid. The same rule may be applied in in the case under discussion because when the Ghusl was unnecessary, it would not substitute for wudho. I will write to my marja though.
  6. Salam alikum, This question is for brothers only. Many years ago when I became baligh and started reading namaz, there was no internet and I did not have any easy way to find answers to religious questions. The only books that were available were not sufficient. At that time, I read the rules for janabat from Tohfatul Awam. One of the rules was that if a person does not know that the liquid which has come out is urine or semen or pus, then it should be considered semen if the meets the 3 criteria (we all know about them). At that time, I did not know about the existence of the liquid which is called Mazi or precum. I thought that only three types of liquids could come out, that is urine, semen or pus. So whenever I noticed pre-cum, I believed that it was semen. I figured that the 3 criteria that were mentioned were only applicable when you were unsure about the nature of the liquid. I believed that since I was sure that it was not urine or pus, so it had to be semen. So I thought the criteria were not applicable to me. With this belief in mind, I did ghusl janabat everytime I noticed precum and read my prayers without doing wuzu. This continued for many years. Then finally, many, many years later I was able to find out that something call precum exists. This made me worried because I had been reading a lot of my prayers after doing ghusl when it was not obligatory on me. And since I read my prayers without wuzu, so my prayers would not be valid. In short, for almost a decade I read many of my prayers after doing ghusl which was not only unnecessary but also invalidated my prayers. This is such a sad and terrible situation to be in. Has anyone else faced a similar issue? Is there any chance that the prayers could be valid?
  7. Salam I went for a blood test today. When the phlebotomist withdrew the needle, a single drop of blood gushed out, which I dried with a piece of cotton. Later on, I forgot to clean my arm and when the time for namaz started, I did wuzu and prayed. Afterwards, I remembered that I had to clean my arm first. My question is that should I consider my arm najis? I read somewhere that if the quantity of blood is less than the area of a nail, then it is paak. What is the exact rule for this? Thanks.
  8. Marriage helps against sins, but still lots of people get married and continue to commit sexual sins (such as lustful gaze). The punishment of sexual sins after marriage is double than before marriage. So, I think - marriage can help someone if he wants to be chaste. But if the person is not concerned about avoiding sexual sins, then marriage may not make any difference to him and he may actually end up adding to his burden of sins after getting married. This doesnt mean that one should be discouraged from marriage. But it does mean - I believe - that married people have to be even more careful about controlling their sexual urge, because even a small lapse would give them double the punishment, whereas the unmarried people would get only half of it.
  9. "Where does it specifically mention in the Quran that cat walks are prohibited for girls?" - a muslim model responding to objections against her.
  10. Salam alikum, The story is depicted in the movie on Imam Ali(as)'s life: "Al-Nebras". The incident you mentioned starts around clip position 26:30
  11. Another khoja name is "Asgharali". They sound strange! No offense meant, but they are a little weird.
  12. It is strange how easy it is to do mutah in western countries - while it is unimaginable and unthinkable in countries like Pakistan.
  13. Salam Circumcision can be performed in different methods and the outcome can also be different depending how much of the skin was removed. In some types of circumcisions, a part of the "frenulum" which is the V-shaped thread like structure attaching the foreskin to the penis, may remain intact. Also in some cases, the frenulum is not completely removed but is tethered or stripped away from the base of the penis leaving behind large portions of the frenulum hanging. This part (i.e., the frenulum - and whatever may be left of it after circumcision) is the most erogenous (sexually sensitive) location of the male body. My question is whether the removal of the entire frenulum obligatory in circumcisions done for Islamic purpose? Anyone aware of cirumcision rules? Thanks.
  14. It could be a problem if you have pictures of hijabis on the wall in which they are not in hijab. If such pictures are hanging where others can see, it might not be ok.
  15. If you stole while you were unaware that the punishment of stealing can be cutting the hand (fingers to be exact), then you cannot be given this punishment. It is very difficult for a thief to meet all those conditions under which his fingers can be cut. There are about 40 such conditions which must be met before this verdict can be given. Some other milder form of punishment may be given if all 40 conditions are not fulfilled. And if someone meets all those conditions, then it would be really unjust and barbaric to let such a vicious, dangerous, criminal person go without having his fingers cut off.
