  1. I do not have that much influence in Sunni-Shia forums but this is picture that I received a few days back and it might help. And the same photo and more is found in this link: http://rafidayn.com/2016/06/08/بالصور-عناصر-الحشد-الشعبي-العراقي-وهم/
  2. What does "night" mean? Does it start from sunset or later? Did the Arab at the time of the Prophet comprehend the same meaning from "Layl" that we do from "night"? Is the verse explained further by the Holy Prophet and his successors or not? These are all the factors that make a difference in fatwas, and make it more complicated than just following the Qur'an.
  3. Actually I heard some time before that the Holy Prophet (S) prayed salaat al-layl with breaks in between, in this way: He would wake up, make wudhu and pray two rak'ahs and then he would sleep; then he would wake up, make a new wudhu and pray another two; and so on. Not that it matters much, but the correct transliteration is: Salaat al-Shaf' and Salaat al-Vatr
  4. By the way, this article gives you good reason for fasting from a non-Muslim's point of view. It is disappointing at first but it gets more promising as you read on http://www.webmd.com/diet/is_fasting_healthy However, I believe that we must perform our religious duties because God wants us to, not because they are healthy. That is more like being the servant of God, rather than being the servants of our own bodies!
  5. I found this on Farsi social media. It is not exactly a scientific reason to fast, but it can help. "Tell those who ask you why you fast in such long days while no doctor approves it that it is approved by a doctor who helps you out when no other doctors can!"
  6. It is fine for me! Wanna use my computer? LOL
  7. Your thoughts are good; but regarding the different responses you got, you need to consider a point (and you probably have, but just in case) Your dilemma is constituted of two premises: Minor premise: giving morphine to/drawing blood from patients hastens their death. Major premise: to hasten someone's death is impermissible. In the two marja's' response, they only considered the major premise, and left the minor premise on you to figure out. On the other hand in the non-Muslim forum some of the responses included the minor premise as well. Say, if there is no harm in drawing little blood or giving little morphine from and to the patient, then why would it be impermissible? Conclusion: you have to know the professional idea on the minor premise before you can draw conclusions from the rulings of the marja's.
  8. What I think is that homosexualtiy is a disease caused by social malfunctions in a society where sexual freedom is too much. In a society with too little sexual freedom people might turn to homosexual intercourse just to quench their thirst but they will never lose attraction to the other gender. In a society with too much sexual freedom, however, sexual sharpness of the opposite gender is blunted. Sexual intercourses become duller everyday to the point that some of the sexually weak people will think that they never had an attraction toward the opposite gender. Other people will look for other ways to stimulate themselves, such as watching porn, engaging in forbidden sexual relationships and prostitution.
  9. What I think is that in English, God is different from god! The word god, with lowercase, is any deity worshiped, one or more, true or false. But then we have a god which is the only, and the true god, He is the uppercase God. It is a god that polytheists do not have. But monotheistic religions share the same god and all of them call Him الله in Arabic, God in English. That is probably why we see in Surat Al Imran verse 64 that we have to call the people of the book to the common god we all share. It is not Muslim Allah and Christian God; it is the same word for all. So it is probably okay if we stick with the word God (uppercase). P.S. It is just a theory of mine, open to objections!
  10. If you simply skip the niyyah of the fast, there will be no fast. Like a normal day when you do not find anything to eat or drink!
  11. You don't even need that if you do not want to fast. Not eating is necessary for fasting, but eating is not necessary for not fasting! Get it?
  12. As far as I understand! You can look at Bihar in case you found a copy. Mine is online but needs subscription. It is here http://www.noorlib.ir/View/en/Book/BookView/Image/11145 if you could sign up. Solution: you can ask the person to bring a chain of transmitter, and if he failed ...
  13. Well, I don't think that GOD wants us to have only the intention and refrain from taking any action. He has given us brains to think and muscles to move. We believe in Him through reason, and move towards the truth through His guidance. But what if we just believe in Him and then ignore His guidance? In Qur'an we always find "آمنوا" (believe) and "عملوا الصالحات" (do good) come together just to say that there is no point in mere belief without action.
  14. I really want to know where you are from. It is different from place to place. You can tell a boy in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, and other countries which practice the rules of Hijab to stay clean and distract yourself. But for a boy from, say, France, US, Spain, and the likes which are filled with indecently clothed women is just next to impossible to distract themselves. You tell him to go to the gym and play sports? What happens when walks out, and with all those other sports players who have their friends with them? Almost impossible! You must first tell where you live and what the conditions are, regarding school, family, work, etc. so that anyone can give you an exact and clear answer.
  15. The hadith is pretty different from what you wrote, but the point of the Holy Prophet's divorcing her is present in the source. However, the hadith lacks a chain of transmitters. That is to say we do not know who and from where acquired this hadith. It starts with these words: "Wa qila" (And it is said). So we do not know who and from what source narrates these words. Still, al-Allamah al-Majlisi narrated these types of hadiths because he found them in sources which were connected to Shia in someway, for the reason of preserving the legacy. Conclusion: no, it is not a reliable hadith.
