Mahdavist's Achievements

  1. Sometimes the gelatine is only contained in the casing rather than the inner contents of the capsule. In such cases you can consider emptying the contents out and throwing the casing away, or ordering empty non-gelatine capsule casings and transferring the content inside. It is a bit of a delicate operation but very much feasible
  2. Wa alaikum as salam I agree with what brother @Abu Hadi said. I also want to mention that despite the financial situation, the brother should not completely rule out permanent marriage. If he is open and transparent about his situation he might still find a partner who is ok with it (for instance a woman who already has an income).
  3. @Haji 2003 certainly many will be alarmed at the fast degradation of social morals in Saudi Arabia, but I also agree with @Sumerian that large portions of secular society, particularly the globalized, social media youth, will see this positively. For now I think many prefer to silently approve rather than to stick their necks out openly (no pun intended) with public shows of support. Regarding your second link to the FT, this is indeed a new low. While it doesn't surprise me that religion has sadly been abandoned by many, or at least secularized, I am amazed at how quickly the Arabs abandoned their cultural conservatism in such affairs.
  4. I didn't follow it in detail but it seems like the people are pretty much disillusioned at this stage with any candidate or form of government. Nobody has really gained the trust of the people in the last 20 years. I don't know how high the turnout was, but I question if people even see a benefit in voting if it's unlikely to have any impact on their living conditions.
  5. My thoughts also. It will pretty much look and feel like the UAE or Qatar.
  6. Actually among the muslimeen it is considered haram among some, permissible among others and even then with certain conditions. Because it has no basis in religion and is generally perceived in the muslim world as an act of imitating disbelievers. In other words man made symbols that are neither from the Qur'an nor from the sunnah.
  7. I don't think there is any good symbol for a tattoo because this isn't from the way of the ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). The culture of tattoos is taken from non muslims. One often ends up growing old and regretting why they performed such an act which has no basis in the Qur'an or the sunnah of the ma'soomeen (عليه السلام).
  8. The Quran says (at various places) obey Allah and obey His messenger. Without hadith you can't obey the messenger because you don't know what he instructed.
  9. Wa alaikum as salam The famous tafaseer of the Shia school such as tafseer al qummi, al tibyan and majma ul bayan are not available in English as far as I'm aware. The few that are available are not necessarily the most prominent ones but might help you inshaAllah https://www.al-islam.org/enlightening-commentary-light-holy-quran-vol-1
  10. A muslim is a muslim. If you are seeing them as converts, white converts, black converts, born muslim, arab muslim, persian muslim or anything else then the problem is perhaps on your side.
  11. Wa alaikum as salam The best way to seek knowledge is to make a sincere intention to learn for the sake of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and to follow this up with effort (ie studying, reading, learning)
  12. Wa alaikum as salam brother Firstly I think it's important for all of us to spend our time in pursuit of knowledge rather than polemics. I have seen some people get so tied up in polemics that in the end their only religious knowledge was the one they used for debates, and outside of this they had learnt very little in terms of self building. However if you want some references for the sake of discussions and/or clearing doubts, our late brother @toyibonline has some nice work on this subject, may Allah have mercy on his soul https://www.al-islam.org/person/toyib-olawuyi
  13. Wa alaikum as salam This sort of anxiety can often occur at such moments. What I would say is that you should enter your marriage with a positive mindset, keeping in mind that we should try and do everything for the sake of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and in the manner that is taught by the Qur'an and the ma'soomeen (عليه السلام). There can be challenges and perhaps it might not work out but the important thing is to be sincere. This is the best that we can do in any of our endeavours. Whatever the ultimate result is, we should accept it and remain thankful to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
  14. Wa alaikum as salam Interchangeable. Keep in mind that the core books are not written in english so translations can sometimes differ but the meaning is essentially the same.
