  1. Sis, all those "diagnosis" they gave you don't mean much at the end of the day. The importance of the genetic components to mental illnesses is small compared to other factors. The hope for you to get better is still there no matter what. I know sometimes our circumstances don't seem favourable but Allah swt always gives us a way out if we seek him. How old are you know? Are your fosterparents supportive and understanding of your situation? Please let me know what have you tried besides medicine from psychiatric doctor? Therapy or anything else?
  2. Assalamualaykum dear sister Hidayah, Let me start off by saying mashAllah beautiful name. Alhamdulillah you are seeking help through Islam. Allah swt has the cure to everything and I'm sure 100% your situation has a solution in order to live a life where you can feel content InshAllah. It's a bit difficult to give specific information without knowing your whole medical history but don't put too much hope in medication from the psychiatric because those are never solutions in the long term. What country do you live in? Is there any history of mental health illness in your family? Sis, Allah gives all of us different tests and whateverour test might be, Allah meant it to straighten us. Don't ever ever lose hope that you can become better and functional in life, I've seen people with schizophrenia or other mental health related problems make tremendous progress to the point of just having a normal life. It's a combination of heartfelt prayers, good diet, and most importantly the true believe that Allah swt can heal you. There are practitioners of the medicine of ahlulbayt which is basically basedon ahadith to treat diverse situations. Regardless of what western medicine tells you, such as "there's no cure, only management" it is not true. There is recovery but it's a process and you must believe it. Try your hardest to ask Allah to remove your worries/anxiety as many times as you can. http://www.duas.org/worries.htm Try to do as many duaas as possible from the above link and be consistent. Even if it's just one but do it everyday. http://www.duas.org/alaviya/dua36.htm This is to cure illnesses and same thing, try your best to do it once everyday at least. Remember, Allah swt is the ONLY one who can get you out of this and HE will InshAllah just keep seeking help. Have you tried counseling?
  3. @Pearl178 @MaryamAfghan Sisters, just because you know other females that wear more modest clothing and their actions are not so modest, or simply don't fully adhere to Islamic principles, doesn't mean that outward appearance is undermined or not important. Modesty is a beautiful Gift that Allah swt gave us and it is a whole package. We can't pick and choose inward or outward modesty. We all know females that display either inward or outward modesty, but Islam calls us to display both and yes both are important and intrinsically related. What happens is that when we diminish one over the other, its like we open a door to shaytan to whisper more and more to the point where we start diminishing more important things. Of course with this being said, abaya isnt mandatory but definetely no clothes where the shape of our body can be outlined thats why abaya seems to be the easiest in my opinion, but there are other options available if you dont find them convenient

  5. Some traditions are found in Sunni books to the effect that the Prophet (s.a.w.) on migrating to Medina found the Jews fasting on the 10th of Muharram. He asked them why, and was told: “It is an auspicious day; it is the day when God delivered the children of Israel from their enemy (i.e. Pharaoh); and, therefore, Moses fasted on that day.” The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “I am worthier of Moses than you are.” Thereupon, he fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast. https://www.al-islam.org/al-serat/vol-8-no-3-4/fast-ashura-sayyid-saeed-akhtar-rizvi/fast-ashura Saddly, the sunnis are not taught about the tragedy of Imam Hussain (as) I asked my sunni friends back in the day about this and they said they never heard about the tragedy, they are just taught to fast on ashura for the reason above. Some of my Somalian friends back in the day never even heard about the Imams!! It's devastating to see how far they went to try to erase the legacy of Ahlulbeyt (as)
  6. Salam, sis.

    I am very much interested in contact method to Sheikhs who are answering questions.


    1. StarryNight


      I sent you a private message ;)

  7. @ema Dear sister, The shaytan has deceived many brothers and sisters by the logic of "gaining knowledge" through asking questions to the opposite gender, because most of the time, such philosophical, political or spiritual discussions don't end in one message only, they require a deeper understanding and level of interaction. It's better if you ask a sheikh. I have the emails of 2 shia scholars who speak perfect English and have gone to hawza and are recognized speakers, they are also good at replying fast and they write in a way that they make you understand things in a manner that doesn't need further interactions. If you are interested you can request them by PM. May Allah increase your knowledge inshAllah.
  8. Sis, you should also remove your Facebook information from here, I mean your shiachat profile. Definitely not a good idea to have that in here. It makes it easy to find you.
  9. Allah Humma Salle Ala Muhammadin Wa Aal-e-Muhammad, Wa Aj'jil Farajahum اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد وعجل فرجهم Peace and blessings be upon Mohammed and his pure progeny and may Allah (swt) hasten his (atfs) reappearance.
  10. MashAllah brother. I keep forgetting how old you are but I know you are young. I'm proud of you for having such an insight about Islam. Remember there will come tough times in everyones lives and those are the so called tests that Allah swt sends us to strenghten our souls and no matter how difficult something seems to be, Allah is the all-powerful, the ever-merciful. I'm also very proud of being a Muslim for all those reasons you mentioned. May Allah swt always protect you.
  11. Aww my dear buddy @Sumayyeh you are so nice mashAllah. May Allah swt always protect you <3
