  1. Salam alaikum brother. To clarify, I do refer to a single marja but I also check other easily available rulings and try to follow the most conservative ruling out of precaution. The difficulty doesn't lie in following the ruling, since the majority of rules are the same. If one wanted to check each and every rule for each and every marja that ever lived then indeed it would be a very difficult taskto. However, sayed al Sistani mentions precautions in his rulings so by following these precautions you are usually already on the safe side. Wallahu a'lam
  2. Walaikum as salam. Each country has a responsibility towards its citizens. There is no reason why Iran or any other country should facilitate immigration for anyone unless it somehow benefits their economy, society or development. Asylum for humanitarian purposes is the only other reason but this should be done within sustainable limits (not like what is currently happening in Europe) Wallahu a'lam
  3. Does it originate from the Qur'an, or from the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام)? Kindly provide references. JazakumAllah. Wallahu a'lam
  4. The guest user makes a good point. People make posts about how ignorant these youtubers are but when they are asked to back up their claims they claim not to have time (despite posting on this forum around the clock) or that these youtubers are insignificant (in which case there shouldn't have been a 3-page topic about them in the first place). It would be better not to comment at all rather than to post comments which can't be backed up. Wallahu a'lam
  5. Salam alaikum wa rahmatullah We must thank our brother @SoRoUsH for presenting a source-based perspective rather than judging based on social conventions and perceptions. Islam has given us guidelines and rulings and unfortunately as a society we still tend to make our own rules and judgements on what is right and what is wrong leading to situations where people fall into haram because what is mustahab or sometimes even wajib has been socially rejected. The title of the topic is Zina and why it's haram. The answer is because Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) made it so. I refer everyone to the post made by our guest brother AbdulKarim on page 1 which sums up this topic very well. Wallahu a'lam

    No it's not allowed. You have to follow the law of the land that you live in. People who emigrate to such countries should think carefully about such factors. Wallahu a'lam
  7. Please share these narrations. It would be a helpful reference. Wallahu a'lam
  8. You do realize that the story of the Imam (عليه السلام) being beheaded while he was praying doesn't appear in most of the historical accounts regarding Karbala? Furthermore it is narrated that the Imam (عليه السلام) was praying salat al khauf, which is a shortened prayer for times of danger. Here is what our narrations say: Link: http://www.*******.org/ithna-ashariyya/wasail/salat/timings/chapter-4 (Replace asterisks by t a s h a y y u) Wallahu a'lam
  9. I don't think it's frowned upon. However, since the time of asr is just after the dhuhr prayers and ta'qeebaat are finished and the time of isha is just after the maghrib prayers and ta'qeebaat are finished I prefer to pray straight away rather than to delay these prayers. I have yet to see a clear guideline on what the specific time of asr or isha is (the narrations seem to indicate that the time begins as soon as dhuhr and maghrib are prayed respectively). Whether it really is a sunnah to pray them separately has yet to be clearly defined. I have heard this claim but never seen the sources to support it. Wallahu a'lam
  10. Walaikum as salam Of course, its not urgent. I thought it would be an interesting topic for a future article. Looking forward to the other commentaries. Currently there are very limited translations of tafaseer in English so these commentaries are indeed very helpful. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) reward you for your efforts
  11. Walaikum as salam dear brother. Jazakumallah for this interesting and beneficial summary. I was wondering if for a future article you could consider writing a summary of this principle. Fee amanillah
  12. Bismillah ar-rahman ar-raheem Salaam alaikum The simple answer is that this practice does not come from the Qur'an or the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). There is a concerning trend among some people in our community to argue vehemently in favour of concepts which do not actually come from our sources and have no relation to our core fiqh or aqaaid. It has reached the point that people are ready to make the most far fetched conclusions (eg. Aimmah inviting suicide bombers to their shrines in order to unite people) just to support these concepts which are neither from the Qur'an nor from the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) Wallahu a'lam
  13. So trying to understand why this happened in the first place is disrespectful? Strange logic. Anyway if it offends you I won't say anything more on it. This is hardly the first such attack, and certainly wont be the last. Wallahu a'lam
  14. Explain to me how one dedicates a thread and how this benefits the people who were martyred? For your information similar attacks already took place in mosques in the United Kingdom and in Canada over the last two years. For some reason those attacks didn't become as popular on social media. Wallahu a'lam
  15. The point of a discussion forum is to have discussions. Nobody is being forced to participate. If you have lessons to share, feel free to do so. Wallahu a'lam
