  1. The main benefit I found from not listening to music anymore was that it freed up a lot of my time. Instead of listening to music on my commute to/from work for an hour a day, I used that opportunity to review longer Surahs I've memorized such as Surah tabarak, Rahman, etc. It also helped me memorize supplications like ziyarat ashura, day kumayl.
  2. Just as the title says, is there any way to end your period early, or even just temporarily? I really wanted to fast today but when I woke up this morning I realized I couldn't. The Sheikh at my mosque will also be leading the amal for today after Asr and I was really looking forward to participating in that... My fast for today is already void because of this stupid thing; I really don't want to miss these prayers as well. This day comes only once a year. If there's a pill or something I can get from the drugstore, please please let me know. I'm really desperate.
  3. Salam, This is just a copy&paste of a few brief points I received in an email yesterday. I'm sure you could find more information with a Google search. 13th, 14th, 15th Shabaan 1436 AH - Ayyam-e-Bayz (the bright days) As Salam o alaikum, 13th, 14th and 15th of Rajab, Shabaan and Ramzan are known as "Ayyam-e-Bayz" - (the days of surpassing splendour) Imam Jafar Sadiq(as) has said, “Who ever prays during the nights of Ayyam-e-Bayz in fact stands at the door of super abundant favours, bounties and benefits available in these months and other than shirk, all his/her sins will be forgi
  4. What is the minimum level of knowledge one needs to have in order to take part in these classes?
  5. I heard you're only allowed to recite 7 ayats of the Quran and not any Ziyarats in that state of impurity because it's a sign of disrespect(?). Is that true?
  6. What can you do if you have your period on Laylatul Qadr and can't fast or pray? I missed my chance last year for the same reason :realangery: I don't want to miss it this year again.
  7. I was referring to both of them, actually. I was going to add "Firoza" to the title but the maximum character length became too long. Sorry about the confusion!
  8. A direct family member had a Feroza made for her but she never wears it except to the occasional party if it matches her clothes (it's more of a fashion statement than a religious symbol for her). If I wanted to, could I wear it regularly? Is Or is it meant to be worn by that person only?
  9. Salam, I was wondering if any of the sisters here happened to buy anything from www.inayahcollection.com ? I wanted to buy a few abayas and was wondering about the fitting of their apparel (do they fit true to size?) because they looked very form fitted on the models.
  10. Maula Hussain (AS) = Master Hussain (AS) When we say "Maula Hussain" (AS) do we literally mean Imam Hussain (AS) is our Master? I know we will never be any of the Ahlul Bayt's (AS) equals, but in this case is Maula meant in the literal sense when we use expressions such as Maula Ali (AS), etc?
  11. As a Shia who studied at a Sunni school all my life, I'm probably even more confused than you are! :P Yes, I believe you are right about the US following Sistani. That's the only name I seem to be hearing over here!
  12. So far what I'm seeing is that some people are saying it's not wajib to follow a Marja, while other people are saying it is wajib to follow one for the sake of needing advice, guidance etc. But isn't that what our Sheikh's are for?
  13. (wasalam) I'm totally not trying to argue with you or anything, but you can't really say that something isn't wajib just because it isn't listed in the Quran. For example, wearing hijab is wajib but as far as I know, it isn't mentioned in the Quran either.
  14. Yes, if you can direct me to some helpful websites or other sources with more information, it would be much appreciated! :) I tried searching it up myself, but couldn't find anything too helpful.
  15. I wanted to know if I can follow the teachings and practices of Islam without committing to a particular marja. For my whole life I was lead to believe it is not necessary to follow a Marja (even my parents didn't follow one) but now I'm in University and everyone is telling me I have to. What if you don't follow one? Is there a consequence or something?
