  1. Sermon 202 What Amir al-mu'minin said on the occasion of the burial of Sayyidatu'n-nisa' (Supreme lady) Fatimah (p.b.u.h.) while addressing the Holy Prophet at his grave. (ومن كلام له (عليه السلام روي عنه أنّه قاله عند دفن سيدة النساء فاطمة صلّى الله عليها، كالمناجي به رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) عند قبره O Prophet of Allah, peace be upon you from me and from your daughter who has come to you and who has hastened to meet you. O Prophet of Allah, my patience about your chosen (daughter) has been exhausted, and my power of endurance has weakened, except that I have ground for consolation in having endured the great hardship and heart-rending event of your separation. I laid you down in your grave when your last breath had passed (when your head was) between my neck and chest. ... Verily we are Allah's and verily unto Him shall we return. (Qur'an 2:156) السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ عَنِّي، وَعَنِ ابْنَتِكَ النَّازِلَةِ فِي جِوَارِكَ، وَالسَّرِيعَةِ اللَّحَاقِ بِكَ! قَلَّ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، عَنْ صَفِيَّتِكَ صَبْرِي، وَرَقَّ عَنْهَا تَجَلُّدِي، إِلاَّ أَنَّ لِي فِي التَّأَسِّيِ بِعَظِيمِ فُرْقَتِكَ، وَفَادِحِ مُصِيبَتِكَ، مَوْضِعَ تَعَزّ، فَلَقَدْ وَسَّدْتُكَ فِي مَلْحُودَةِ قَبْرِكَ، وَفَاضَتْ بَيْنَ نَحْرِي وَصَدْرِي نَفْسُكَ. (إنَّا لله وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ). Now. the trust has been returned and what had been given has been taken back. As to my grief, it knows no bounds, and as to my nights. They will remain sleepless till Allah chooses for me the house in which you are now residing. فَلَقَدِ اسْتُرْجِعَتِ الْوَدِيعَةُ، وَأُخِذَتِ الرَّهِينَةُ! أَمَّا حُزْنِي فَسَرْمَدٌ، وَأَمَّا لَيْلِي فَمُسَهَّدٌ، إِلَى أَنْ يَخْتَارَ اللهُ لِي دَارَكَ الَّتِي أَنْتَ بِهَا مُقِيمٌ. Certainly, your daughter would apprise you of the joining together of your [1] ummah (people) for oppressing her. You ask her in detail and get all the news about the position. This has happened when a long time had not elapsed and your remembrance had not disappeared. My salam (salutation) be on you both, the salutation of one bidding farewell, neither in aversion nor in dislike, for if I go away it is not because I am weary (of you), and if I stay it is not due to lack of belief in what Allah has promised the endurers. وَسَتُنَبِّئُكَ ابْنَتُكَ بِتَضَافُرِ أُمَّتِكَ عَلَى هَضْمِهَا، فَأَحْفِهَا السُّؤَالَ، وَاسْتَخْبِرْهَا الْحَالَ، هذَا وَلَمْ يَطُلِ الْعَهْدُ، وَلَمْ يَخْلُ مِنْكَ الذِّكْرُ. وَالْسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمَا سَلاَمَ مُوَدِّع، لاَ قَال وَلاَ سَئم، فَإنْ أَنْصَرِفْ فَلاَ عَنْ مَلاَلَة، وَإِنْ أُقِمْ فَلاَ عَنْ سُوءِ ظَنٍّ بِمَا وَعَدَ اللهُ الصَّابِرِينَ. (1) Al-Kulayni, Usul al-Kafi, I, 458; (2) al-Tabari, Dala'il, 47; (3) al-Mufid, al-Majalis, 165; (4) al-Tusi, al-'Amali, I, 108; (5) al-'Irbili, Kashf, II, 147; (6) Sibt, Tadhkirah, 318. ----- [1] The treatment meted out to the daughter of the Prophet after his death was extremely painful and sad. Although Sayyidatu'n-nisa' Fatimah (p.b.u.h.) did not live in this world more than a few months after the death of the Prophet yet even this short period has a long tale of grief and woe (about her). In this connection, the first scene that strikes the eyes is that arrangements for the funeral rites of the Prophet had not yet been made when the contest for power started in the Saqifah of Banu Sa`idah. Naturally, their leaving the body of the Prophet (without burial) must have injured Sayyidatu'n-nisa' Fatimah's grief-stricken heart when she saw that those who had claimed love and attachment (with the Prophet) during his life became so engrossed in their machinations for power that instead of consoling his only daughter they did not even know when the Prophet was given a funeral ablution and when he was buried, and the way they condoled her was that they crowded at her house with material to set fire to it and tried to secure allegiance by force with all the display of oppression, compulsion and violence. All these excesses were with a view to so obliterate the prestigious position of this house that it might not regain its lost prestige on any occasion. With this aim in view, in order to crush her economic position, her claim for (the estate of) Fadak was turned down by dubbing it as false, the effect of which was that Sayyidatu'n-nisa' Fatimah (p.b.u.h.) made the dying will that none of them should attend her funeral.
  2. Eventually, your parents should meet him. You definitely don't need to tell your parents the whole truth. They don't need to know you two are temporarily married. If he meets your criteria, you could just introduce him to your parents as someone who is asking your hand. They definitely want your happiness and they would help you in making your final decision.
  3. Salaam, "A Saudi man" may or may not marry a widow. Make sure YOUR Saudi man does. I don't believe it's fair to judge people solely based on where they're coming from. Even if we accept certain stereotypes about Khaliji men, we all know that there are always exceptions. Maybe your Saudi man doesn't have any of the things that your dad doesn't like about Khaliji men. Of course! I don't see why not. If being his only wife and never residing in Saudi are important for you, you could put them as conditions into your marriage contract (Aqd-Nikah). I don't know if your dad has met him or not. If not, maybe it's a good idea for them to meet. I hope and pray it all works out for you.
  4. I also advise you to remember death and to lessen your heedlessness towards it. Why should you be heedless of Him Who is not heedless of you? Why expect from him (i.e., the angel of death) who will not give you time? The dead whom you have been watching suffice as preachers. They were carried to their graves, not riding themselves, and were placed in them but not of their own accord. It seems as if they never lived in this world and as if the next world had always been their abode. They have made lonely the place where they were living, and are now living where they used to feel lonely. They remained busy about what they had to leave, and did not care for where they were to go. Now they cannot remove themselves from evil, nor add to their virtues They were attached to the world and it deceived them. They trusted it and it overturned them. وَأُوصِيكُمْ بِذِكْرِ الْمَوْتِ، وَإِقْلاَلِ الْغَفْلَةِ عَنْهُ، وَكَيْفَ غَفْلَتُكُمْ عَمَّا لَيْسَ يُغْفِلُكُمْ، وَطَمَعُكُمْ فِيمَنْ لَيْسَ يُمْهِلُكُمْ؟! فَكَفَى وَاعِظاً بِمَوْتَى عَايَنْتُمُوهُمْ، حُمِلُوا إلَى قُبُورِهِمْ غَيْرَ رَاكِبِينَ، وَأُنْزِلُوا فِيهَا غَيْرَ نَازِلِينَ، كَأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَكُونُوا لِلدُّنْيَا عُمَّاراً، وَكَأَنَّ الاخِرَةَ لَمْ تَزَلْ لَهُمْ دَاراً، أَوْحَشوُا مَا كَانُوا يُوطِنُونَ، وَأَوْطَنُوا مَا كَانُوا يُوحِشُونَ، وَاشْتَغَلُوا بِمَا فَارَقُوا، وَأَضَاعُوا مَا إِلَيْهِ انْتَقَلُوا، لاَ عَنْ قَبِيح يَسْتَطِيعُونَ انْتِقَالاً، وَلاَ فِي حَسَن يَسْتَطِيعُونَ ازْدِيَاداً، أَنِسُوا بِالدُّنْيَا فَغرَّتْهُمْ، وَوَثِقُوا بِهَا فَصَرَعَتْهُمْ. - Imam Ali [as] - Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 188
  5. Salaam, It is mentioned in Al-Baqara:28: وَاسْتَشْهِدُوا شَهِيدَيْنِ مِن رِّ‌جَالِكُمْ ۖ فَإِن لَّمْ يَكُونَا رَ‌جُلَيْنِ فَرَ‌جُلٌ وَامْرَ‌أَتَانِ مِمَّن تَرْ‌ضَوْنَ مِنَ الشُّهَدَاءِ ... And call upon two of your men to act as witnesses; and if two men are not available, then a man and two women from among such as are acceptable to you as witnesses ...
  6. Salaam, I'm so sorry and will pray for you. Regarding your question, did you break the Mutah before doing the Nikah? It's not permissible to do the Nikah while being in Mutah. If the fixed period of the Mutah has not ended yet and the two want to do the Nikah, the husband should pardon the wife for the rest of the period of Mutah, and then do the Nikah.
  7. Salaam, From sistani.org [1] and [2]: 2063. There are many Haraam deals and businesses, some are mentioned below: [...] Sale and purchase of those things which are usually utilised for haraam acts only, like (idol, cross, musical instruments, and) gambling tools [...] 2076. If a thing which can be used for halal purposes is sold with the intention of putting it to haraam use - for example, if grapes are sold so that wine may be prepared with them, the transaction is haraam, and as a precaution the deal is void. However, if the seller does not sell it with that Niyyat, but only knows that the buyer will prepare wine with the grapes, the transaction will be in order.
  8. Salaam, From sistani.org 1069. It is necessary that there should be nothing between the forehead of the person offering prayers, and the thing on which he offers Sajdah. ... Your face could be fully covered during your prayer. My relatives also cover themselves like the photo you've shared. They wear a scarf (Maghnaeh) and a veil (Chadoor). The scarf does not cover their forehead completely, but they cover their entire face with the veil. When they go down for Sujood, the veil opens and exposes the face and their forehead touches turbah.
  9. Salaam, Changing adults is almost impossible, in my opinion, if they themselves don't want it. You, however, have a better chance of motivating them through showing love, friendship, and kindness. Based on what you said, you're not sure that he drinks. You just saw a picture of him holding a cup of (allegedly) beer. He might just hold it for the picture and did not drink from it. If I were you and I wanted to talk to him about it, I would go to him and tell him to ask his friend to remove the picture because your parents may see the picture and may think he drinks. Again, if there is a slight chance of change, it seems to me that it should be sought through friendship and love.
  10. From Sistani.org: The consent of the father or the paternal grandfather is not required in the marriage of a non-virgin woman (that is, a girl who had previously married and had sexual intercourse). But the case of the woman who had lost her virginity because of fornication or another cause is like that of a virgin.
  11. Salaam, It seems to be all talking about the haram act of making the script and pages of the holy Qur'an najis. It doesn't necessary say that some inks are inherently najis, it says if it is najis, then don't use it to write the holy Qur'an. The ink could become najis in so many different ways (e.g., with a drop of blood or alcohol or ...). It says that if the ink is najis you cannot use it to write even one word of the holy Qur'an.
  12. Salaam, This may concern some of you, so I decided to bring it to your attention. It's not permissible to use external objects for sexual pleasure. Dotted condoms are usually advertised to enhance and maximize stimulation and pleasure. So I recently asked sistani.org to see if using them is permissible. This is the response I got in Farsi: بسمه تعالى اگر لذتی حاصل شود که مستند به این شیء خارجی باشد جایز نیست موفق باشید www.sistani.org دفتر مرجع عالیقدر آقای سید علی سيستانى - بخش استفتائات which translates to: If the pleasure is due to this external object, then it is not permissible. Wasalaam
