  1. Salaam alaykum, Even though this thread is old I wanted to add that I have created a website and one of the tabs is called Shia Central. I have tried to list as many Shia websites that I could find that were still in operation. I will be checking the sites listed periodically and removing any that are no longer working or adding new ones as I come across them, InshAllah. If you think of other sites to add or ideas for articles, resources etc please contact me on the site. Shukran! https://www.journeytosalaam.com/
  2. Assalamu Alaykum everyone- I live in the United States and would like to open a modest clothing store. For the most part I have to order my clothing online in order to find loose, comfortable, nice looking islamic clothing. Other people I know have the same problem of finding modest clothing in stores including non-muslims who want to dress more conservatively. Clothing is the first phase but would eventually like to expand to some other ideas I have. I am in the process of writing a business plan and compiling information on everything else that goes into starting a business: location, store set-up, merchandise etc. The biggest hurdle thus far is financing. I am hoping there are individuals on this forum who can contribute ideas on securing islamic financing. The start-up cost of something like this is estimated at $50,000. There are a couple of business that provide interest free islamic business loans but you have to have experience in running a business which I do not. There is kiva.org, gofundme.com but the only problem is not knowing if the money given by a person was earned in a halal way. Any information given is appreciated, shukran!
  3. update: the AMI Education does have an online program but the cost for their schooling is around $5400/year. I will contact them to see if they know of a free or low cost online school. I will check back to see if anyone else reading this forum knows of another possible school and will update if I find anything. Shukran.
  4. Thank you everyone! Shabbar-E-Shabbir, you are correct I was looking for an online school as I am not in a position to move at this time, I will take a look at the link/site you provided. Shukran.
  5. Assalamu Alaykum everyone- I would love to attend howza. I live in the United States and there is one Howza in the state I live but not close enough to attend and still work full-time. I am looking for an online howza where you can work towards a degree and where it's either free or maybe no more than $1000 a year. There are online Sunni schools like this (free/low cost for example IOU) but I am having a hard time finding Shia online schools that are free or low cost. Any information that can be shared would be greatly appreciated! Shukran.
