  1. This is one of the reasons why the goal of many youth initiatives is to prevent such behavior from developing, or limiting it by providing an alternate/additional group of God-conscious friends. The issue of youth decaying into popular, indecent culture is, very clearly, a problem; but, one of the solutions is to create some sort of youth group which can invite inspiring speakers, do activities together to form a new friend circle and cater to the needs of the youth. One of the issues I have seen is youth groups/initiatives sponsored by mosques tend to be done by individuals who don't complet
  2. (Wasalam) That would lead to not so ideal inheritance conditions for the wife and child after the husband dies in what was essentially handled like a non-time stipulated marriage.
  3. (Salam) Today, especially in our Western societies, the development of our youth along with their relationships with our religion has become a hot, imperative issue to address. The presence, or lack thereof, of Islamic morals, values, knowledge and its likes among our youth have led many mosques and people to develop youth organizations or add a Youth Coordinator to their boards. What have been your experiences with a Muslim, Shia, youth group? This can either be through a mosque-sponsored organization or a separate entity working with youth from different mosques/region(s). What are experien
  4. (Wasalam) Zabiha meaning the animal was slaughtered according to Islamic standards as related by the Quran and the ahaadeeth. These include a Muslim slaughtering the animal, the name of Allah being recited before slaughtering, etc. Muhammad b. Ya`qub from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from Ibn Abi `Umayr from `Umar b. Udhayna from Muhammad b. Muslim from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام in a hadith wherein he said: Do not eat from a slaughtered animal which the name of Allah had not been mentioned upon it. And from him from his father from Ibn Abi `Umayr from one of his companions. He said: I asked A
  5. (Salam) What is worrisome is how many centers which claim to be masaajid have banners and pictures of Dhuljinah, the horse of Imam al Husayn (as), while they pray.
  6. It is; and the necessity of 2 just men doesn't solve the problem per say. Is tashayyu` a prerequisite to be considered `aadil?
  7. (salam) Is the testimony of a non-Shi`a accepted in determining the new moon?
  8. (wasalam) It appears to be an old (Persian?) custom. http://www.imamreza.net/eng/imamreza.php?id=1081 Beating kettle-drums (Naqqarah) was customary in olden times upon the occurence of an important event or the attendance of people in royal courts. In 860 A.H./ 1455 A.D., when Baisonqor, Shahrukh Mirza's son, the Timurid Sultan, came to Mashhad from Herat, kettle-drums were beaten to announce his presence in the holy shrine. He was visiting the holy shrine in order to find a cure for his illness which the physicians were unable to cure. Baisonqor was miraculously healed in the holy shrine an
  9. I don't think you understood what I wrote, brother. This doesn't have to do with classical Christianity; I'm referring to modern innovations in Christianity. Apart from that, I don't think we're saying different things.
  10. (salam) These discussions remind of converts from Christianity speaking about how they could not reconcile Jesus (as) being a man and God at the same time. Suffice it to say, if someone can bring forth a hadeeth from the Imams (as) where they teach us to seek help by saying "Ya (insert something not-Allah) madad/adrikni" then I'll start saying it. If the Imams are the individuals from who we received the numerous du`aas such as du`aa Kumayl, al Iftitaah, ziyaraatal `Aashura, etc., then surely they have also instructed us how to seek help from them (or by them). Until a valid textual proof
  11. It would be interesting to know which other unpopular ahaadeeth Shaykh Saduq preferred based on the principle of opposing the `aamma, which is evidently one of his main criteria for accepting shahr Ramadan always being 30 days. Also, will someone post the ayaat which indicate starting months based on moon sightings?
  12. (salam) Found this picture online; thought some here might be interested in it. It's Shaykh Ishaq al Fayyad, one of the four major scholars in Najaf, in Masjid an-Nabawi.
  13. (wasalam) Jazakallah khayr. Here is also what Shaykh Mufid in his Kitab al Irshaad has to say about this event; which agrees with what you wrote; "He (pbuh) went down and led the people in a short prayer. He returned to his house. At that time, he was in the house of Umm Salama, may Allah be pleased with her. He remained there for a day or two. Then,`Aa'isha came to her to ask her to move him to her house so that she might undertake to nurse him. She had asked the wives of the Prophet about that and they had given her their permissions. Thus he (pbuh) was moved to the house in which `Aa'is
  14. Sorry, the ahaadeeth of 30 days also specify Sha`ban being 29 days always. From al Kaafi by Shaykh al Kulayni, V4, Kitaab as Sawm, Chapter 7, Hadeeth 2 A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad Muhammad ibn ‘Isma‘il from certain persons of his people who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Allah, most Blessed, most High, created the world in six days, then He took away this from the days of the year which became three hundred fifty four days. The month of al-Sha‘ban is never complete and the month of Ramadan, by Allah is never le
