  1. Ok, I think I found some rule that gives some permission. There's a Q & A in Ayt. Sistani's code of practice, work and investment section, question 288: "288. Question: Is a muslim allowed to work in grocery stores that sell liquor in one of its sections, and his work is only as a cashier? Answer: He is allowed to receive the price of the items other than liquor and also the price of liquor, if the buyers are non-Muslims." Is there a contradiction or am I missing a point, in where "liquor" is different than alcohol or "receiving price" means something else?
  2. Thanks for your answer, but this doesn't directly answer the question. When someone works in a retail store, the only purpose of that store is not to sell only alcohol, but everything. Alcohol only is a small percentage of items that are sold. In addition, the cashier only handles the monetary transactions, and he/she does not profit from that which is sold, but only works for a salary. It's better to ask a marjaa regarding these issues.
  3. What about someone who works as a cashier in a retail store, which sells alcohol alongside other normal products? Is that job problematic?
  4. Yeah, I was also thinking about contradiction. It also contradicts the belief itself that in even the lowest level of Jannah, every believer will have a kingdom of his/her own.
  5. I heard it from this lecture. You can skip to 22:00. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى bless the sayed, he's made the effort to talk about the blessings of Jannah this Ramadan through a series of lectures.
  6. I hope everyone's last days of Ramadan are going great. As it is known that when believers enter Jannah, even the lowest ranked believers will have a kingdom, which includes blessings such as having mansions, gardens etc. However, I've come across narrations from a lecture that say that some people in Jannah will be homeless and there are two reasons for that. 1- Always missing salat ul asr. 2- Never visiting the shrine of Imam al Hussain (as) throughout one's life without a valid reason. Does anyone know the source of these narrations and their authenticity? Aside from the authenticity, I can understand the first reason, because it is the wajibat after all, so I can imagine that as a valid reason for someone being homeless in Jannah. Now, the second reason sounds odd to me. Going to Karbala is not wajib and one can still love and follow the teachings of ahlulbayt(as) without doing the ziyarah, right? I am in no way, shape or form trying to undermine the significance of the ziyarah of Imam Hussain (as). It is one of the goals of my life to go to Karbala one day. Just want to understand it better, because I think the followers of Ahlulbayt, aren't the only ones going to Jannah, so it's hard to imagine only them having mansions in Jannah and a huge number of other muslims being homeless who don't even believe in the ziyarah of Imam Hussain(as). Wanted to know the opinions of more learned individuals.
  7. This is an old thread, so I'll reply anyway. Obviously, you haven't read my posts properly. We came face to face, and it was pretty evident that he did it. I know people think I'm some kind of lunatic for believing in these things, but the evidence is there in the Quran about black magic and jinns etc. I'll challenge anyone to a debate who says that black magic is just bogus and only people with mental illnesses (yes, someone accused me of having a mental illness in this thread) believe in, to blame their problems on others.
  8. Aah, you're right. Forgot that Nawroz is a Solar Hijri calendar event. Kinda got it mixed up. So, yeah the reappearance that might take place in Ramadan or Muharram according to narrations, could coincide with Nawroz in that year.
  9. Me too, doesn't seem authentic. There are many other narrations, which say that Imam Mahdi (as) will reappear either in Ramadan or Muharram.
  10. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate your advice, but my intention wasn't to judge, but to give the readers a gist of the scenario, so they can give me advice on how I can approach this problem. Because, the actions of my father directly affects me and my family. Let's say as an example, my dad, is someone who doesn't fast or listens to haram music. Well, I couldn't care less, because it doesn't affect me. So, yeah, I wanted to make it clear to myself, and make sure I have nothing to do with this, because at the moment everything is wishy-washy in my life.
  11. That's a brilliant example. Haven't thought about it much before, actually. That's right, things aren't that black and white in this matter.
  12. Thanks for your insight. I should've phrased my first post better, as I said "All my problems in my life, could be a result of this". Not all my problems, as you said there is no one who doesn't have problems in their life, be it whatever background, but I sometimes suspect that some hardships we are facing could be a worldly consequence of haram sustenance. We may never know for sure.
