  1. I am not too sure, but I don't think we have any such narration in the Imamiyya tradition. Such narrations, if at all found somewhere in the Muslim hadith corpus, may be the result of the infiltration of israiliyyat (judaica).
  2. Do you also think what I think, brother!? After all, this doesn't look like too bad a match, does it?
  3. I think there is one by Shams C. Inati that is fairly accurate, downloadable as pdf.
  4. The bibis (sa) also had sons and husbands like the Masoomeen (ams). Ask him to become like them first, if he wishes to play the comparison game.
  5. Islam owes its very survival during its nascent phase to the ingenuity and sacrifices of a woman (salamun alayha).
  6. Assalmun alaykum, There are a few things I'd like to suggest- 1. Tackle the language issue. When reverts come, kindly switch to English/the local language so that they feel included in the conversation. 2. Do not humiliate/ make fun of the reverts if they get something wrong. Please understand that everything is very new to them, and they'll take some time figure things out. 3. As has been mentioned by the other members - an end to idiotic marriage restrictions. A supportive statement by our maraja in this regard would be a big psychological boost for those of wishing for t
  7. I am not sure, but I think Ayatollah Sistani (ha) also has a fatwa along similar lines.
  8. Words are poor comforters, sister. Stay strong. That's all I'll say.
  9. Assalamu alaikum, A new beard trimmer. Still learning to use it correctly.
  10. One more category- The irregulars- they come once in a while, post something, and then disappear for weeks/months on end. I belong to this type.
  11. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى lengthen his life!
  12. Wa alaikum assalam, No, thanks. Sorry, but I disagree. That'll work just fine, thanks. I'm sorry,but I won't be able to make it. I am sorry, but I am unable to help you with this. Depends a lot on the situation, actually.
  13. Ah great!! Didn't know that!! Pretty interesting!!
  14. Don't know where I fit in. I think I have a post-structuralist approach when it comes to these classifications. Same for personality tests.
  15. Assalamu alaikum, Dear sister, Don't lose hope. If Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى is delaying things for you, there must be something good waiting for you at the end. I don't know that well about women in the mid- twenties, but for us men, 20-25 is an awkward phase (I myself fall within this age group). It's a confused state of mind to be in. We instinctively feel that we are no longer boys, and we also know that we are yet not quite men either. In their mid- twenties, most men have just finished their education and are looking for jobs and financial stability. It's a sudden real
  16. Also, parties are a strict no no. I always make it a point to be away from such gatherings. While on field trips, I have many a times insisted that the group should lunch at an alcohol free venue, and made sure that it happens. Not that big a deal if you have considerate colleagues.And it is haram to attend gatherings where alcohol is served.
  17. Assalam alaikum, I am in general agreement with the rest of your post, brother, but I think that the talking with non-mahrams point requires a bit more qualification. I feel that informal conversation with colleagues of the opposite gender is not wrong in itself. In the corporate and the academic spheres, the boundaries between personal and the professional might not be that clearly drawn at times. It might very well be the case that informal connections beyond work might get you a good business deal or a good peer review. Moreover, excellence of personality may also act as an instru
