    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Diaz in Being wealthy   
    Wassalam,
    Personally, I think none.
    Not only is big amounts of hoarded wealth which is not under circulation bad for the economy, it is also against the spirit of tawakkul in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Why would I need to hoard wealth if I firmly believe that the Rāziq will provide for my needs in the future too, just as He is doing at present? I must always remember that if Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) were to cut off my rizq, even all the wealth in the world won't suffice me. Money is merely a medium, the real sustenance comes from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
    Of course, we should set aside enough to meet the expenses of ourselves and those dependent on us, and spend the rest fī sabīlillāh. Anything hoarded beyond that is superfluous.
    This is my personal opinion. People are welcome to disagree.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in Are qadiani considered Muslims to shias ?   
    Their ulama were called upon to explain their beliefs during the trial,and they failed to provide a coherent or logical explanation of their central belief. They never explained what they meant by 'Mirza Qadiani is a prophet and yet not a prophet'- a belief that not only flies in the face of Islam's theological core of the finality of Rasoolallah (S)'s Prophethood, but is also manifestly absurd- postulates of formal logic dictate that a thing can be either A or not-A at a given point of time, but never both at once. If (as their propagandists claim) they believe that Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani was merely a saint (walī) who reached the stage (maqām) of inkishāf, then why insist on calling him a prophet at all? They say that this belief of theirs is in line with the 'traditional views' within Islam, but neither the Shi'ā nor the Sunnīs nor Ibādīs subscribe to any such 'traditional view' of sainthood. None of these call their saints 'prophets'.
    The lives being under threat is a separate matter and irrelevant to our discussion of whether or not they are to be considered Muslim. The state hasn't called for their killing, their citizenship hasn't been revoked, nor have they been declared kāfir harbī. It is just that they are officially not considered Muslims anymore. Deviant beliefs need to be pinpointed and denounced openly, especially when attempts are being made to drag  other Muslims down the lizard -hole of heresy.

    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.

    They do. And especially their Lahore centre (markaz). In fact, it was the movement to declare them apostates in Pakistan itself that created all the worldwide hue and cry during the 70s.

    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.

    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.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to The Green Knight in Being wealthy   
    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, 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 !

    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.
