    AbdusSibtayn reacted to notme in April is Autism Acceptance Month   
    Salam alaikum
    This topic is meant to honor our brothers and sisters on the ASD spectrum. I'm not going to call anyone out, but if it applies to you, thank you for your participation on shiachat. 
    I was pleased to see that Ahlulbayt TV is bringing awareness to the community. Here is their promo.
     
    While I'm neurotypical as far as I know, two of my sons are autistic. When my oldest son was little, we were made to feel unwelcome in the local Islamic center, and I couldn't tell you how many times people commented to me that he must be autistic because I was non-Muslim when he was born. I hope things have gotten better now, and I hope we will continue to make progress as a community, recognizing and accommodating all believers, even if they can't/don't act or speak as we expect.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Abu Hadi in Being wealthy   
    There was a great line about this in the last will of Imam Ali((عليه السلام)).
    https://www.al-islam.org/articles/letter-father-son-last-will-ali-ibn-abi-talib
    I think this is one of the most important hadith that exist. Here is a line from it
    Therefore, when you are wealthy and powerful, make use of your wealth and power in such a way that you get all that back on the Day of Judgement, when you will be poor and helpless. Be it known to you, my son, that your passage lies through an appallingly dreadful valley (death or grave) and extremely trying and arduous journey.
    In other words, the only virtue in being wealthy is using that wealth to help others who are in need, and thus save yourself at the time when you are truely poor and really need saving (on the Day of Judgement). Besides this, there is no other virtue in being wealthy, and there is a great hazard in wealth, which Imam Ali((عليه السلام)) explains in many places in the same hadith.

    I believe the answer to this question is going to vary significantly person to person. Some people think that a new prestigious car is a necessity while some don't. Some parents believe the most expensive education for their children is necessary while some might not. Much like many people will not conform to the sunnah of the dowry given to his daughter by the holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) nor the follow the standard of the feast given for that marriage, nor of the extent of celebration. Similarly the price of the clothes, shoes, the quality and quantity of the food and things of sustenance that are religiously made incumbent upon a husband to give to his wife, I don't think there can be a consensus on that either. I wish there could be though. And until such things are standardized and while capitalism with consumerism reigns over society and while Muslims conform to it the  "necessities" are going to vary wildly.

    O, Ramadan !
    O, month of tranquility ! O, month of callings !
    O, month of good deeds ! O, month of blessings !  
    O, month of goodness ! O, month of thankings !
    O, oh my dear Ramadan !
    Ramadan has reappeared with a smile, blessing the servant all the time,
    making him conscious of his Lord while, being forgiven from every crime !
    Ramadan is the time of blessings ! Ramadan is the time of good deeds !
    The best time for prayers, and the satisfaction of all the servants needs !
    Truly a time of happiness, that purifies the servants soul and mind,
    Truly a time for correctness, sent for both worlds of Jinn and Mankind !
    And may the blessings and salutations of Allah be upon Taha,
    since he's the best and most beautiful of all creation,
    and to Ali, the father of generosity and succesor of his nation,
    and likewise to az-Zahra, the luminous and pure lady,
    and to her two sons, and their sinless and virtuous progeny !
    O Lord of the universe and O All-seeing, raise my hopes and accept my fast,
    O Generous and Merciful, I sincerely ask you to purify me from my ugly past, 
    to remove my burdens, and please forgive my sins from the first till the last !

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in Are qadiani considered Muslims to shias ?   
    That's very true, and you seem to be unaware of the entire anti-Qadiani movement through the 70s in India and Pakistan, the court proceedings in the Pakistani Supreme Court , the role of the ulama like Mufti Ja'far Husain (rh) and Maulana Isma'il Deobandi (rh), and the subsequent legislation declaring them non-Muslim. Their ulama themselves stood in open court arguing that khatm-un-nubuwwah is not a core tenet of Islam, and how Mirza Qadiani was a genuine Prophet, and here you are saying that they don't hold the said view. Their contention that Qadiani was a 'prophet' but somehow still not a prophet the 'technical sense of the term' is just misleading semantics. I live in India and am aware of what views their various marākiz represent, both within the subcontinent and in London. One of their centres is in my own city.
    If this fails to satisfy you, feel free to ask the Pakistani brothers on the forum itself.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to dawudansari2 in part of Munajat Sha'baniyyah   
    My God, I seek refuge in You from Your anger. ‘Now that I have realised and have stated that everything is reliant upon You, and that I am in such a desperate situation and completely dependent upon You, what worries me is if You become angry with me and not satisfied with me, what will I do?’
    We need our helper and the one who provides us with our sustenance and refuge to be happy with us, but if He is angry then we will be in great trouble. We can incur His anger by insulting Him or those close to Him. And if Allah chooses to declare us as
    His enemies then there is no way for us to receive help from elsewhere.
    Therefore, in this part of the prayer, we seek refuge in Him from His anger, which is incurred through a person’s own immoral performance and behaviour, and is not incurred without reason.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Khurasani in The ShiaChat Marriage Crisis   
    The ugly reality of our times, brother. The general descent of the society into money mindedness means that the parents have come to treat their children as capital, which they can invest to reap profits.
    As for the ruling on the necessity of obtaining the walī's permission for marriage, even those marājā who have ruled it obligatory, such as Sayyid as-Sīstānī (ha) and (to the best of my knowledge) Sayyid al-Khamenaī (ha) and Shaykh Makārim Shīrāzī (ha) have made this notable exception-
    But the exact modalities of how this will happen is not known to me. Perhaps the wakīl of the marjā will be involved.
    Although I personally don't think that rescinding the obligation of obtaining the walī's permission will be a good idea- swindlers and con artists still abound in the marriage market, and I myself have witnessed such scams being perpetrated especially on the prospective bride's family. The ruling, in my view, hasn't outlived its purpose yet.
    This, however, is a totally different case. The daughter herself is demanding an impossible and exorbitant amount as dowry.

    No brother. She is not in India.
    I actually tried to contact al Imaan also through call because there procedure was not clear to me but I didn't recieve a response. Also, as I said that the payee is outside India so for her it would have been easy to pay al-ayn.
    But I will this time try to pay my own khums to al imaan inshallah when the time arrives.

    Brother, assuming that the sister is also from India, why not try sending her khums to Al-imaan Trust, Mumbai? They are also ijāzah holders from Sayyid as-Sīstānī (ha). And it will also solve the problems of converting into a foreign currency, insha'Allah.

    Firstly, There is no problem with the foundation. It is genuine and even I payed my khums to them. There link is available on the website of Sayyid al Sistani and I even have there ijaza.
    She mailed to them because by mistake she payed more than her actual Khums. This matter can only be resolved by mailing.
    Anyways, now she has received a response from them Alhumdulillah and they have asked her to fill up some form. So, all is good. They might be taking time to respond due to any reason.
    Thanks brother @Diaz and @Quran313 anyways for your concern and help.

    That is why if the father rejects a proposal for an invalid, un-Islamic, materialistic reason then his permission is no longer necessary for the marriage to be valid.
  24. Completely Agree
    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Abu Hadi in The ShiaChat Marriage Crisis   
    This is why, I am guessing, there is some movement on the issue of getting father's permission 'ihtiyat wujubat' (required out of precaution). There are some marjaa' now like Sayyid Rouhani who say it is mubah only, and some others who are changing their positions. It is precisely because there is a huge trend now to use the daughter as a tool to climb the social ladder, increase their status within the community, or just outright 'get paid' by means of holding this permission over their daughters head with not one ounce of empathy for the position of their daughter, her happiness, or the happiness of the potential groom and without any considerations for the teachings of Islam on this issue, other than this one ruling (i.e. that they have the right to decide who their daughter marries without taking her thoughts or wishes into consideration)
    The purpose of the wiqalat of the father when it comes to marriage was to protect the daughter from marrying a fasiq, a non muslim, someone with extremely bad aklaq, or someone who was using the marriage to do fraud. Permission was only to be denied in very specific cases where the daughter wanted to marry one of these types of people. Outside of this, the permission of the father was something that was not his right to withhold. But it is mostly no longer used for that purpose anymore (it still is in some cases though), but rather used for the father to 'hand pick' a husband that he wants her to be with, rather than one that she wants to be with. This was not the intended purpose of the wiqalat in marriage.
