  1. Salam brother, Ramadan Mubarak. I hope you are fine and your loved ones. 

  2. Explain it in it's simplest form. There is a gap in my philosophy vocabulary.
  3. salam. i am allowed zero messages as of yet so i have no choice but to leave my query here. you said that you do istekhara quraniya and it has worked out for you so far. first of all, is this the istikhara that's done using randomly opening the quran seeking an answer from it? if so, how do you do it i.e., what's the procedure. 

    moreover, what if you land on a verse that starts with indeed, verily, no, nay etc (granted that you're an english quran). how are such words to be interpreted? are they be considered or is the entire verse/surah to be considered? 

    can you also tell me the procedure to doing istekhara from the quran? 

    Jazak'Allah khair

      Walaikum Al-Salam wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh.

      Purchase the istikhara book by Sheikh Kathim Al-Yaseen. It is essentially a Quran with each page telling you if the istikhara is good or not.

      Alternatively, I would suggest that you do the istikhara prayer. It has given me results as well.

  4. In this page he’s talking about fi’tra but I do not understand what any of it means. http://lib.eshia.ir/73017/1/117
  5. Brother, this is in the case that you were showering before Ghusl. What some people do is that they turn the water on and shower without doing the requirements of the Ghusl first, which is to wash the head and neck first, step out, wash the body. This is what Sayyid Sistani is talking about. I am strictly speaking about Ghusl. The idea is that you have to separate the body parts. If you don’t, the Ghusl is wrong.
  6. @Diazوعليكم السلام brother. If you can understand arabic:
  7. I would like to point out something, just incase. I do hope you’re doing Ghusl and not simply showering and there are steps to Ghusl. First you wash your head to the neck. Then you step out from the water and then go back in and start rubbing your body.
  8. Inshallah we will be visiting the Wakeel on Friday. I will update everyone with the answer.
  9. Do they need the Maathoon? Or can they recite it without him?
  10. I found the answer: No, you have to do the Sharia marriage. Second question: What if it is a mixed couple? (Shia-Sunni) and they do their marriage in Sunni court where the Man and the woman’s father/guardian are the ones that do the Seegha? Is this allowed? What if it is done in a Jafari court? Does the father/guardian have to be there or only the man and woman? Can the father/guardian sign a paper and not be there?
  11. السلام عليكم If two people get married in civil court instead of shari’ia court, will this be enough? Or do they have to do something extra?
  12. السلام عليكم و رحمة الله If I have invested in stocks and have not withdrawn my money, do I have to withdraw 20% of the earnings to pay khums every year? Or do I wait until I withdraw all the money out? This is in terms of long term investment (2-5 years). How does this work?
  13. السلام عليكم I have 2 questions: 1. If you married someone Mutah and then decided you would like to marry this person permanently during the Mutah period or after, is there a I’da that needs to be observed or what is the process? 2. If you married someone Mutah but there was no intercourse involved, does the woman have to observe the I’da?
  14. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم الحمد لله رب العالمين السلام عليكم I have been offered a job today. Alhamdulilah. Thank you everyone for praying for me. وعليكم السلام
