    . It is permissible to visit public places where music is being played, even if it is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings, provided that one does not intentionally listen to it: for example, passengers on course, waiting areas for visitors, public parks, restaurants and cafes, etc —even if the music played there is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings— because there is no problem in hearing forbidden tunes without intending to listen to it.

    The precise reason kibr is such a deadly sin is that we never know how and when it creeps in, and it can drag us from a sense of accomplishment to shirk straightaway, even before we know.

    al-Sadiq (عليه السلام) has said:
    A man came to The Prophet of Allah (S) and said: ‘O Prophet of Allah, I complain to you concerning the whisperings from Shaytan that so troubles me during Prayer that I don't know how much of my prayer I have offered.’ The Prophet (S) said to him:
    ‘When you enter the state of Prayer, strike your left thigh with the forefinger of your right hand, then say: “In the Name of Allah and by Allah, I put my trust in God, I seek refuge in God, the All-hearing, the All-knowing from Shaytan, the Stoned One.” You will exorcise him (Shaytan) and drive him away’.”
     
    al-Saduq (رضي الله عنه) quotes the following advice from al-Sadiq (عليه السلام) that he gave to one of his trusted companions:
    O’ Servant of Allah! When you offer Prayer, pray like someone who bids farewell and fears that he will never return (i.e. pray in such a manner as if it were the last Prayer of your life). Then fix your gaze on the point of your prostration. If you know that there is someone on your left or right, you take more care in offering your Prayer; then know that you stand in front of Someone Who sees you and you don’t see Him.
    (al-Hurr al-`Amili, Wasa'il al-Shi'ah, iv, 685)
     
    In the Thawab al- A’mal, al-Saduq quotes with his chain of transmitters from al-Sadiq (AS):
    One who offers two units of Prayer with the knowledge of what he says therein, he does not finish them without God forgiving him every sin that there is between him and God.
    (Wasa'il al-Shi'ah, iv, 686)
     
    The Prophet (S) has said:
    While a person is in the standing position during Prayer, he must be looking down fixing his gaze to the point where he places his forehead while in prostration; while in Ruku’ (bending position) the gaze should be between his two feet; while in Qunoot (when he raises his hands reciting the invocation) he should fix the gaze on the palms of his hands, placing them in front of his face; during Sajdah (prostration) his eyes looking at his nose; and while in the final sitting position the gaze to be towards his armpits.

    Dear OP: you have very low opinion of men around you. It’s not true at all of what you said above, there are plenty of people, both men and women who are chaste, moral, and adhere to certain ethical codes. 
     
    Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows inherent weakness of us, hence all He wants from us is to strive in His path, He doesn’t want us to see angels.
     
    Don’t expect anyone around you to be an immaculate Imam, because none of us are or can be that. As long as a person is not Fasiq, doesn’t insist on haram and unlawful, is honorable and is working towards improving his Deen, he should be good enough.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Abu Hadi in What does loving your wife mean?   
    Love is based on 3 components. Once you have these three components, love will happen naturally. The three are
    1. Trust
    2. Respect
    3. Communication
    In order to love someone, the first element is trust. This is the basis for everything else. You must trust that the person is acting in your best interest and their intention is sincere is wanting to make the relationship better and build a future, and they don't have a hidden agenda. Islam is what allows trust in a relationship by clearly defining the boundaries of behavior for both spouses and informs them of their rights and responsibilities in the relationship. As long as both spouses confine their relationship to the halal, and don't violate the rights of the other, then trust develops. After the trust develops, then they start to rely on each other and admire each other, that is Respect. 
    Once trust and respect is there, you need communication in order to keep the relationship going. To tell you the truth, this is where most couples, including most muslim couples fail. It is because a precedent is set early in the relationship regarding dominance. Either one or the other spouse feels that they are dominant over the other one and thus have the right to communicate their thoughts and feelings to their partner, but their partner does not have the same right over them. So when the other partner tries to equalize the relationship by expressing their true thoughts and feelings the other one becomes resentful and starts to hold a grudge, feeling like they are being attacked. In order for trust and respect to be sustained, there needs to be an honest, two way communication between the husband and wife in which both feel comfortable to express their true feelings and give their opinions and those feelings and opinions are respected. In Islam, it is the man who makes the final decision in many issues, regarding issues that affect livelihood because he has the responsibility to support the family financially. That does not mean that he cannot listen to and try to accommodate as much as possible the feelings and opinions of his wife regarding this. Sometimes it is not possible to do this completely, but he should make an effort. The most valuable Shura (mutual consultation) is the Shura between husband and wife, provided the trust and respect are there. 
    So a couple who has trust, respect for each other, and an open, two way communication also has love. Love is not some magical dust that drops down from the sky, it is a process and has steps that if they are followed, love will develop. 
    The difference between the love for husband / wife, and the love for the Imam(a.f.s) is that love for the husband / wife is conditional, while the love for the Imam(a.f.s) is unconditional. The love for the spouse can change or go away if their behavior stops being respectful and trust is lost. This is not possible with the Imam(a.f.s) since the conditions which bring about the love for the Imam(a.f.s) don't change with time.

    Your love of Imam & love of your future wife has not contradiction with each other if your intention will be loving your wife trough  your love toward Imam (عليه السلام) ie your intention for loving your wife is passing through your intention for loving & obeying Imam (عليه السلام) wich goal of both of you will be loving & obeying & being helper of Imam Mahdi (aj) inshaAllah so just this intention can be loving Imam (عليه السلام) which besides it both of you will have loving each other inshaAllah but it's not necessary to talk with your wife about intention when you talk to her ,just have your pure intention & ask from Allah to put a wife in your life which she loves Imam (عليه السلام) like you.

    Everything we do should be for the sake of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Loving our parents, treating people with kindness, loving ones spouse etc..
    Any humble muslim or muslimah should be able to accept and appreciate that their partner loves them for the sake of Allah.
    Regardless, a humble believer does not loudly proclaim their merits and characteristics. One does not need to therefore push the point that their love is for the sake of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), it is sufficient that their intention should be correct.

    You know brother, this is very true. 
    In general, through consumerist and capitalist system we have the majority of everything supplied (therefore reliant on corporations, industries and government) so we, ourselves, rather become tools of manipulation by the system. 
    The only freedom there is, is freedom from materialism. Atheists (which Liberals heavily tend to fall into) have no solace in this regard - essentially living for two things: Self-pleasure and the Grave. Not too much 'freedom' on that front.
    Feminism itself serves the function of a form of tyranny itself, enslaving women to their Egos, enslaving men to attachment to women. No unity, nothing. Sad case. 
    The thing people tend to not realize is that these things (like Feminism) are rooted in things even bigger than the sole topic alone, as it's very much an existential, ontological and moral-based issue that is there to sow discord between men and women.
    At some point you'd hope that the "West" realizes that there is more to life than amusement and pleasure. Perhaps the most ridiculous aspect is that these things are already very well known in ancient history (people didn't suddenly "learn to think" in the 20th century  ) but we tend to falsely see time as a progression rather than a cycle, which is merely just a fallacy of the secular world. The truth to Feminism is that 'there is nothing new to see here'.
    My rise-and-repeat phrase is "there is nothing new under the sun" (from Ecclesiastes).

    I don't think this is that complex an issue. Suppose there is a general set of rules that I need to abide by. I have two alternatives- either I acquire thorough knowledge of those rules myself, or follow someone who is an expert in that field. I can not be ignorant and not follow an expert at the same time, because it is me who stands to lose if I do this.
    In our worldly matters, we make it a point to refer to specialists for issues as they arise- doctors for our health, engineers/architects for our houses, lawyers for legal issues etc. Then why take matters so lightly when it comes to our Hereafter?
    Other brothers above have explained the issue much better than me. You can refer to their arguments.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to starlight in Mother is the cause of success for her children   
    Success in dunya, not necessarily. Success in Akhirah , surely. 
    This was probably said to make you understand the importance of obedience to one's mother.This does not apply in general. People have been very successful in worldly life despite being neglectful children and vice versa. However, rights of parents in general and mother especially carry great significance since they are second only to the right of Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and this is something which we will be questioned about in afterlife. I always say taking care of your mother is possibly the best shortcut to Jannah( if there is a one, lol) 
    There is something interesting l would like to tell you. I have observed how people treat their mothers is a very good gauge of how they will treat other people.  Whenever I have wanted to know how someone is really like as a person inside, regardless of his apparent akhlaq, religiosity, wealth, social status, successful social circle I have looked at how they treat their mothers and this has proven to be a fool proof method so far. People who put themselves before their mothers are generally self-centered in other social relations too though it might not be apparent at that time. People who don't want to spend money on their mothers generally prove to be stingy. Those who neglect their mothers will be neglectful of you too. If someone can't find goodness in his heart for his mother it is very unlikely he has any goodness in his heart at all. 
    One doesn't have to necessarily obtain his mother's satisfaction. What we are required is to only try. There are parents who are difficult, unjust, sometimes abusive and toxic. There is a possibility they might never say that they are happy with their child but that doesn't matter. What is going to determine our success in afterlife is how much effort we made.  This is the big difference between Islamic worldview and western worldview. Islam is effort oriented regardless results, while modern world is result oriented.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to .InshAllah. in Women don't pray fewer prayers than men   
    Asalamu alaykum,
    I always assumed women prayed fewer wajib prayers than men because they don't pray during their periods, but I realised this isn't the case.  I'm not sure it's worth a thread on SC but I'm making one anyway!
    Women typically have periods 7 days out of 28 for about 40 years.  This means they don't have wajib  prayers for 10 years of their life.  This is why I assumed they pray fewer prayers than men.
    But I realised that they become baligh before men - 5 to 6 years earlier on the common view, so the 10 year gap drops to around 5 years.
    In addition, when pregnant they don't have periods, and so depending on the number of pregnancies that will knock off a few months/years from my initial calculation.
    And when breastfeeding they usually don't have periods (depending on whether its exclusive or not and other factors), and even if they have periods during this time they tend to be fewer on average.
    Then we have to consider life expectancy.  In modern times they tend to outlive men by a few years (in the West at least).  I'm not sure about differences in life expectancy 1400 yrs ago though.
    Taking the above into consideration, on average men and women probably end up doing a similar number of wajib prayers throughout their lifetime.
    The real difference will be in the concentration of prayers, i.e. number of prayers per unit time, not in the total number.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Azadar-e-Ali in Is ritual impurity non-existent for Ahlul bayt(عليه السلام)   
    Bismillah
    Assalamu alaikum,
    The word that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) uses in the verse 33:33 is 'rijs', which the commentators of the Holy Quran have taken to mean 'spiritual impurities' such as sins and defects of personality, rather than physical impurities. I am not sure if it includes physical impurities too.
    As for physical impurities, there are narrations about the Imams (ams) doing wudhu before prayers or other acts of worship. There is a saying of Malik ibn Anas that he never saw Imam as-Sadiq (عليه السلام) except that the Imam was in a state of taharah. Similarly narrations about the Prophet (sawa) doing wudhu are present in our books of traditions. That would suggest that the general rules of ritual purity and impurity applied to them as well. 
    On the other hand, they were also exempt from certain restrictions that us ordinary humans have to abide by. Rasoolallah (sawa) and Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen (عليه السلام), were, for example, allowed to enter the Masjid-un-Nabawi even in the state of janabah (please note how the narration implies that these two infallibles were exempt from some of the restrictions of janabah, and not that the state of janabah itself didn't exist for them). One of the excellences of Sayyida az- Zahra (عليه السلام) was that she was freed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) from menstrual discharge, and this is how she came to acquire the epithet 'batool'. But I don't know if this implied exemption from observing other rules of ritual purity as well.
    Shaykh as-Sadooq (rh) in his 'Uyoon Akhbar al- Rida' quotes a narration from Imam at-Rida (عليه السلام) to the effect that all those bodily processes that apply to the other humans,also apply to the Imams (ams). So my take is that all the general rules of ritual purity applied to them too, except for such specific instances where they were exempt from those rules. But I haven't read or heard anything definitive in this regard.
    Wallahu aalam.

    Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has sent the prophet for our guidance and we are the ummaa of the last prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and we need to follow his teaching and sayings in addition to the verses of quran. After him there are 12 imams from his Ahl albayt (عليه السلام). 11 imams have been martyred due to the preaching and spreading the true religion. Our imam of time is in ocultation and he has provided us the concept of fuqha who have responsibility  to guide the people to the teachings of islam. The people have responsibility to access to them for their religious matters.
    It should be remembered that the mujtahid formulates his opinions after pushing his research and study as far as he can; that is all that is expected of him, for he is neither inerrant nor an `alim bi 'l-ghayb (knower of the unseen). The muqallid is enjoined to follow his opinions.
    So, even if the mujtahid's fatwa is not actually in agreement with Allah's real command, neither he will be punished on the Day of Judgement for having issued the fatwa, nor will his muqallid for having acted according to it, for both will have done what was commanded of them and what was humanly possible for them to do.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Muslim2010 in Following a Mujtahid? Why is it important to do Taqleed?   
    First of All i like to add the following information about Taqleed:
    Taqlid literally means "to follow ", "to imitate". In Islamic legal terminology it means to follow a mujtahid in religious laws and commandment as he has derived them. A mujtahid is a person who is an expert of Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh); he is also called a faqih. 
    The Qur'an instructs Muslims to seek guidance from people of learning in matters about which they lack knowledge:
    "Question the people of remembrance if you do not know." (21:7)
    It is an obligation in Islamic law to study everything which is necessary for the spiritual and material development and well-being of an Islamic community, but it is an obligation which is known as wajib kifa'i.
    In the present instance, for example, an Islamic society has need of experts in the medical sciences, in physics and chemistry, engineering, education, and so forth, and as long as there is a lack of knowledge in these areas it is an obligation on the community as a whole to acquire it, which means that a group of Muslims should devote themselves to research so as to benefit the Islamic people as a whole.
    In a famous hadith, `Umar ibn Hanzalah asked Imam Ja`far as-Sadiq, peace be upon him, about the legality of two Shi'ahs seeking a verdict from an illegitimate ruler in a dispute over a debt or a legacy. The Imam's answer was that it was absolutely forbidden to do so.
    Then Ibn Hanzalah asked what the two should do, and the Imam replied: "They must seek out one of you who narrates our traditions, who is versed in what is permissible and what is forbidden, who is well-acquainted with our laws and ordinances, and accept him as judge and arbiter, for I appoint him as judge over you. If the ruling which he based on our laws is rejected, this rejection will be tantamount to ignoring the order of Allah and rejecting us is the same as rejecting Allah, and this is the same as polytheism."
    In another tradition from Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq, this time narrated by Imam Hasan al-`Askari, peace be upon them, he says, "...but if there is anyone among the fuqaha' who is in control over his own self, protects his religion, suppresses his evil desires and is obedient to the commands of his Master, then the people should follow him."5
    A third hadith is from the Present Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, peace be upon him, who said in a reply to Ishaq ibn Ya'qub: "As far as newly occurring circumstances are concerned, you should turn (for guidance) to the narrators of our ahadith, for they are my proof over you just as I am Allah's proof."
    We can understand two things from these verses of the Qur'an and the ahadith of the Imams:
    1) there must always be a group of fuqaha' in every Muslim society;
    2) those who are not qualified as fuqaha' or mujtahids, must follow one, and that to go against his instruction in religious matters is tantamount to polytheism., must follow one, and that to go against his instruction in religious matters is tantamount to polytheism.
    Why are there differences among the mujtahids in their legal opinions?
    Many people wonder why it is that the mujtahids differ in their religious opinions, or fatwas, when the bases of their ijtihad are the same. Firstly, it should be said that any differences in the fatwas is hardly ever such as to be contradictory; it is almost impossible to find a case of one mujtahid saying some action is wajib and another saying it is haram.
    Take, for instance, the case of salatu 'l-jum`ah, the Friday prayer. All the Shi'ah `ulama' are of the opinion that in the time of the presence of the Imam this salat is obligatory on Fridays, because it is the Imam, or his representative, who has the right to call the people to Friday prayer; but they differ as to what is the correct course of action when the Imam is in Occultation.
    Secondly, it should be observed that the existence of differences in scientific opinions is not to be taken as a sign of a substantial defect in the quest for knowledge and a reason for abandoning it altogether; it is, rather, a sign that knowledge moves in progressive steps towards perfection. Differences of opinions are to be found in all sciences, not just in fiqh.
    There may, for example, be more than one opinion about the therapy for a particular patient's disease, and all of these opinions may be superseded later on by the development of new methods of dealing with that disease.
    Thus these observations can be seen to be relevant not only to differences between the opinions of contemporary scientists but also to historical differences, and all these differences should be regarded as signs of the dynamism within a science and stages to be passed in its route to perfection.
    It should be remembered that the mujtahid formulates his opinions after pushing his research and study as far as he can; that is all that is expected of him, for he is neither inerrant nor an `alim bi 'l-ghayb (knower of the unseen). The muqallid is enjoined to follow his opinions.

    Salam, 
    Let me give you an example:
    You have a health issue, let's say for some reason you feel weak all the time. You go to your walk in doctor, or your family doctor. This is similar to an Alim, shiekh, or moalana. The doctor is pretty well verse in the medical field, BUT requires more resources if your health issue is serious. 
    Let's say you go to your doctor, and they think it's a bit serious. They may refer you to a hospital that has a bit more resources, and people who specialize in certain areas. This is similar to a mujtahid. They have more knowledge, and resources to diagnose your health condition, and most cases do are able to. 
    If your health condition is very serious, then they may refer you to a top level specialist, this is a marja ( Ayotullah), and this person is an industry specialist that has extensive knowledge who can 99% of the time understand what's going on. This specialist usually has many, many years of education, practical experience, publications, and countless hours of on the job experience. Many people look towards this persons teachings, lectures, and guidance. 
    This is similar to why you should follow a learned person (ayatollah). Although they may not be doctors, they understand Islamic law better than you, or I. They understand every aspect of how Allah, the prophet, and Imams lived their lives, and in accordance of Islamic laws. We follow these learned people such as Sistani so we are no deviated from Allah's path, or the prophets/imams teaching. These people also do all the hard work to gather evidence based laws, so we don't have to.
    You do not HAVE to follow a learned person, but you better be knowledgable enough to understand how to gather evidence that supports your way of life, Islamic law, Quran, and various other resources used to gather various types of laws. 
    If you look at our Sunni brothers, many times they misinterpreted the Quranic narrations, hadiths, and various other laws I do not want to get into (wudhu, prayer, etc).
    This is a prime reason why we follow learned persons, so we do not deviate away from the path of Allah while in the absence of our last Imam.

    Wa alaikas salam,
    No, dear sister. I don't think it's going to adversely affect your spiritual experiences. I just noted something which I have been told that the greatest of the mystics do. I myself am not very sure of the reasons though. My guess is that they are secretive about their experiences because normally when they narrate them to people, it elicits praise and can cause pride to creep into their hearts, and thus deviate them from the path of humility.
    But this isn't the case with you. And I don't think it's going to have any adverse effects. I would, once again, strongly advise you to continue this noble deed. Don't miss out on your wajibat. And even on the days when you feel that you can't recite the full ziyarat, just say "Assalamu alaika ya Aba Abdillah (as)", say the salawat, and seek forgiveness from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) saying that you are unable to recite the full ziyarat. That being said, do see to it if you are able to recite the Ziyarat-e-Warisa on Thursday nights. It's a short ziyarat and takes only about 3 minutes to recite (if you recite till "wa baatinukum"), but the rewards are extremely high.
