    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in How do you deal with sexual frustration?   
    Assalamu alaykum,
    Dear sister,
    Masturbation is haram mutlaqan [absolutely forbidden] because it is zina, period. I had once read Sayyid Sadiq Shirazi [ha] quote a hadith from Imam as-Sadiq[as] that whoever masturbates has committed zina with himself, so you can well imagine the sinfulness of this vile act.
    Have you tried fasting? It works like miracle. Fast frequently. Don't leave any wajibat. Pray nawafil more often. Listen to/ recite Surah at-Tawbah and Surah Yusuf. Focus especially on those  bits where Yusuf[as] fights temptation and subhanallah, emerges triumphant.
    Look at the problem from this angle- I may love a car, a house or any particular object. I covet that car/house, but don't have enough money to purchase it. However much I may like it, I know that since I am not the lawful owner of the car/house, I cannot steal it/usurp or forcibly occupy it. Think about the evils of letting go of your self control, and how poorly it would reflect upon your personality in the eyes of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. Learn to conquer your desires. Merely having a desire does not warrant fleeing headlong in its direction to fulfill it. The jihad against the nafs is the greatest jihad. The zuhd of Khadijah[sa], Fatima al-batool[sa] and Zaynab [as] should be your ideal. Do not criticize the ahkam of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى out of desperation, my sister.
    I had seen your other thread as well, and it looks like that you need serious help. May Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى help you overcome your temptations, dear sister.
    Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa Aali Muhammad.

    Wow!! You nailed it, akhi!
    We have 1400 years of such fitna behind us. We've withstood the fitna of the Kaysaniyyah, the Zaydiyyah, the Ismailiyyah, and the Waqifiyyah, and in the modern times, the Bahai's. The school of the 12 Awsiyyah (as) of the Prophet (sa) stands strong and proud, and its followers united behind its Shepherd (ajtf) and his deputies (ra). If this bloke and his army of propagandists think that they can swindle us, it's them who need to smell the coffee.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Maryam.It in Using Soap While Ghusl   
    Assalam alaykum brother,
    But when I emailed najaf.org about this, they also said it is not allowed. They said so on two different occasions.
    I think what brother @Hassan- is trying to imply is that in the first wash, water would get mixed with soap lather and not remain mutlaq. Only in the second wash would mutlaq water reach the skin, and we need to wash the head and neck + each side twice, so this would mess with the ghusl.

    According to the office of Sayyed Sistani in London:
    Question:
    Salam alykom
    Are we allowed to kill dogs without a specific reason or fear for diseases?
     
    Answer:
    In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

    It is allowed in case of sufficient excuse

    Wassalamu Alaykum
     
    This makes sense when you look at the bigger picture and not only in one or two specific hadiths. This also seem to be in line with the Sunni view that such hadiths have a context behind them, and were not meant generally as you should go out and kill all dogs you can find.

    When Animals Complain to God [4th night Muharram) |Sheikh Azhar Naser -9/13/2018
    And there is a famous quote from from Prophet (pbu) that “an adulterous Woman once saw a Prophet hirsty dog I desert & she made a pot with her shoe & gave water to that dog that Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) forgave  her sins & rewarded paradise to her but in other hand a good woman tortured a cat that caused death of cat that in response Allah enters her to hell “ source Nahjul Fasaha so as Imam Ali (عليه السلام) always was following proxy & ordered of Prophet (pbu) also there is many stories that Grand Shia scholars was caring about astray dogs that were providing food & shelter for dogs so the claim about killing dogs just fabricated for insulting  both Prophet Muhammad (pbu) & Imam Ali (عليه السلام) also

    Dogs are our friends, they do more for us than any other species. 
    Guide dogs for blind and deaf, bomb sniffing dogs, guard dogs, rescue dogs, drug finding dogs, police/army dogs, therapy dogs to help with the clinically depressed and sick kids, they even have dogs capable of detecting early stages of cancer and more, not to mention some who refuse to leave their owner's grave. We  honestly don't deserve them. 
    This is coming from a cat person.
    I can accept the answer by Sayyid Sistani.
    Dogs are one of the few select animals mentioned by name in the Qur'an, and even then, not in a bad light - protecting People of the Cave.
    I will defend the innocent puppers if I see injustice against them -_-

    I have a dog. A cockapoo ( cocker spaniel and poodle). It’s unfortunately know as a designer dog. He doesn’t malt and is absolutely amazing. He listens to commands. We have a prayer room which he knows not to go anywhere near. We only have clean, never been touched by a dog clothes near the door so we can change before prayers and after wudhu. 
    He even stopped my car from being burgled at 2.30 in the morning when he heard someone try to open the car door. How he knew I will never know but super glad he did. 
    I haven’t had any issues with my religious practises since having a dog. It just makes you more aware and coinscious. Which I think is a good thing. 
    I genuinely hate the way Muslims stereotype dogs and have this hatred for them. They are also a creature of Allah.

    I agree with this.
    It is unfortunate how cruel Muslims can be to animals, usually out of ignorance and also as they do not prioritise animal rights as in the West, partly due to more existential issues and poverty.
    But there is hope, with social media we are seeing more committed individuals and organisations in Muslim countries.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in Do you prefer the current "Islamic Regime" or shah   
    This argument is as unimpressive as it could be. A load of baseless slander and unfounded allegations against the leadership.
    Won't corruption still persist if there was a regime change in Iran? Or are you trying to suggest that somehow the people's hearts would change magically?
    The Shah loved the people? How uninformed a person has to be to make such a comment! How he was selling out his country's lands and resources to the imperialists, massacring crowds upon crowds, and siphoning off national wealth to his private bank accounts in the West shows just how much he 'loved' his people.
    I find it amusing that the only people who favor the destruction and collapse of the Islamic Republic are the pseudo-Shia taqleedi secularist-modernists, fugitive royalists living in the States, left-liberal fifth columnists, hawkish imperialists and pro-imperialists, the nawasib, the self-obsessed phony intellectuals, and the intellectually-dysfunctional, emotional-wreck hormonal teenagers who can't tell apart Imam Ali (as) from Imam Ali ar-Rida (as) or Ali an-Naqi al-Hadi (as). They don't have a modicum of knowledge about Islam or the Ja'fari madhab, don't know a scratch about the affairs of the Shia, and struggle to do their wajibat, but they salivate at the slightest opportunity to slander the Islamic republic, and go about spreading their garbage all over the internet.
    Nobody is saying the administrative system is perfect. It has lots of leakages and problems and needs vital reforms. Constructive criticism is way different from unfounded slander and libel. I know there are gaping holes in the system, but I also know that the reason why the Zionists are not dancing in Beirut, the reason why the shrines in Najaf, Karbala, Samrarra, Baghdad,and Damascus have not been razed to the ground like al-Baqi,the reason why the Shia in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bahrain have not been exterminated,and in fact, the reason why the Shia have a mention in the Western academia and a backbone in international relations today is the Islamic Republic and the Blessed Revolution of Imam al-Khumayni [rh].
    And those who are saying that the Shariah of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى ought not to be implemented just because it causes inconvenience to some munafiqeen and dunderheads need to prepare themselves for  the Night in the Grave. Do the Imperialists bother about our consent when they send money from our taxes to fund our enemy nations over and above our loud protests? Did Switzerland bother to seek the consent of Muslims before she banned minarets throughout the length and breadth of her territory? Did France bother to seek the Muslims' consent before banning hijab, or forcing Muslim shopkeepers and restaurant owners to sell pork and alcohol in their establishments on the peril of being denied their licences, and forcing women to shake hands with unrelated men? They are very clear about these policies- if you don't like our laws, don't sign up to live here. Muslims too need to reply likewise to the fifth columnists- if you don't like the laws, feel free to leave.
    I am always at the forefront of opposing blind opposition to the West, nor do I believe in the 'clash of civilizations' nonsense. There are many features of the Western civilization that I admire - the regard for institutions, the deep regard for knowledge and learning for the sake of knowledge itself, past any vulgar utilitarian or status-quoist concern, and the robust tradition of private philanthropy and welfarism. All the same, I feel little reason to change my beliefs and convictions just because they don't happen to appeal to secular liberal sensibilities.

    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 this sorry state of affairs to end.

    One idea I have is that when the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Muslims migrated to Medina, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) assigned a Muhajir and an Ansari as brothers.
    Similarly, community centers should have volunteers (Ansar) who help Reverts (Muhajir) assimilate into the community. Of course brother-brother and sister-sister.
