  1. Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters, Just as the title says, how come we very often run across the use of that phrase in the quran? Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)already knows all there is to know, so why does it say that, such as in this ayat: Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 140: إِن يَمْسَسْكُمْ قَرْحٌ فَقَدْ مَسَّ الْقَوْمَ قَرْحٌ مِّثْلُهُ وَتِلْكَ الْأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ If a wound has afflicted you (at Ohud), a wound like it has also afflicted the (unbelie
  2. Assalamualaikum, Thanks for the tag.. what I know, I only know from something I learned a long time ago, and I can't give you an exact source for it. I know this is a very poor answer! Anyway, what I had learned at some point either from a lecture, or conversation with my mentor sister, cant remember which, is that these things that are "najis" for us, are of no consequence to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), as He is above and beyond these kind of things, but for the health and spiritual advancement and whatnot of humans, Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has made these things najis for
  3. As salaamun aleikum everyone, I need some info on kharbozeh (Persian melon). I want to buy some seeds for my garden this year to grow persian melons but im having a hard time remembering the characteristics of them. Are their insides orange or green? Is the inside texture crisp? (I seem to remember them being crisp, not soft like other melons...) The outside are yellow with green netting, right? Thanks for any help!!
  4. Salaam everyone, Does anyone know where in Al Mizan Allameh Tabatabai mentions the 24,000 different Prophets along with their categorization/rank and numbers of how many Prophets were in each rank? Ive heard its mentioned in there somewhere, but Al Mizan is too HUGE to manually search through, and i dont have all the books that have come out either, so hoping someone here can help. Thanks, Salaam.
  5. Salaam, I have the same problem, and unfortunately, no one i know nor the local masjids want them. Masjids are already overwhelmed with books..Its not uncommon for muslims to "donate" (actually dump on the doorstep or inside the door) things like books, paintings, old calendars, pamphlets, vases, and other items that have holy names on or in them cuz they dont know what else to do with them. There's actually signs in my masjid that says not to leave anything there because this has become such a problem. It's difficult because according to some people, you're not even allowed to giv
  6. Salaam, i can totally relate to your experience. Im the same way and spent most of my life working as a gardener/landscaper because it enabled me to be away from people, emersed in nature, and to be able to stream islamic lectures on my phone while i was working, however, as a female, i had to leave that field as i became more and more practicing. Fields that may be good to look into could be microbiology as its mostly just you and a microscope,park ranger, or maybe some type of code writer. Possibly a cataloguer/librarian? Im sure there are other things but i cant think of them right now
  7. Salaam, Can you please provide the source Al Saboor came from? Id like to research the rest of the 99 Names, in sha Allah. Thanks!
  8. Salaam, can you please explain what this is? Ive never heard of it before and my Arabic is not good. Thanks!
  9. Salaam, Can you link to the full lecture? Id be very interested to watch the unedited version as well.
  10. Salaam, Precisely,and these are the same questions that end up circling in my head, round and round, because i dont know which angle to understand things from..which one is it?? I dont like this not knowing how to operate or think about things as i conduct my day to day life:(
  11. These people resigning kinda scares me cuz im wondering whos going to replace them? Someone recently made a post about the type of people and their leanings, personal and political, of those that biden has stacked in all the highest positions ...im pretty sure we can expect more of the same to happen as its been the case since the 60s..pretty soon there wont be any true americans left in our important government positions.
  12. As salaamun aleikum, Hiking, hiking, and more hiking! Read, garden, fix things, mountain bike, Shia Chat, listen to lectures, and before Corona, get together with my best friend and go for walks and discuss irfan. Wish i could do MORE HIKING!!!
  13. As salaamun aleikum, Very interrsting..id never heard this minority opinion before. Can you provide any links or names or further info on this? Im interested in reading further just for the sake of knowledge. Thanks!
  14. As salaamun aleikum, This lecture may help. Its part 4 of a 9 part series, but this part dives directly into things. As regards their sayings, its very easy to say things that sound good. Its a compete other thing to actually live according to those things that "sound good".
  15. As salaamun aleikum, When im in the city, its mostly used to heat up the place, lol, with an occasional meal of gyros here and there..The stove top is used every night for dinner. Tonight we had iranian gheimeh(split pea and meat stew). When im at the farm, i dont have an actuall stove. I have a Coleman camp stove with an adapter hose going to a small propane tank and i use it to cook on as well as heating up me room. Probably not the type of answer you were looking for
  16. As salaamyn aleikum, @LaaylaThanks for your kind reminder, sister! I appreciate it. @Sabrejet sorry for getting back to you so late! Im so sorry for you to be going through this situation. Its very hard to deal with. I know some of what youre going through because my family is very similar in a few ways, with the main difference being that theyre not Muslim. I was raised Christian, but my family isnt practicing and havent been for many years. My youngest brother is the only one who holds any real spiritual beliefs. I am the only Muslim. They dont have issues with my conversion,
  17. HAPPY WINTER TO YOU TOO!!! ( I love Winter..its my fave season!!!)
  18. As salaamun aleikum, In sha Allah i will respond to this post tomorrow as its 2:06am here..i can totally relate. Stay strong and hold the path, in sha Allah.
  19. @starlight Bravo sister:) I was going to reply to this thread also, but then i saw this post which covers the points i was going to mention and then some. Thanks for the detail and mentioning specific names
  20. It came through in my email notification. Should be able to find it from there..thanks!
  21. As salaamun aleikum, I find this very interesting. Ive never heard this before. Would you by chance be able to name who these infiltrators were or at least what tribe they were from and who their real allegiance was to? It would be very helpfull. I will see if i can find the book you mentioned as a pdf.
  22. As salaamun aleikum @hasanhh Happy Thanksgiving to all here as well:) Im thankfull for all the things listed above by other brothers and sisters and that i have Shia Chat and everyone here to learn and converse with. It really has added a lot to my life, alhamdulilah:) Stay safe everyone:)
  23. Salaam brother @eThErEaL I have issues with this topic too. Yes, its in the Holy Quran, but i think what truly happened or what is being refered to is not known to us and may not necessarily be a literal physical splitting. Maybe someone here with a strong grasp in Arabic can tell us if theres anything in that ayatt that proves a literal, physical splitting or otherwise? I know there are hadith regarding these ayatt, but my guess is that if they ARE rated as saheeh, or even hassan, that they really arent legit. There are hadith that fall into this situation, and people argue on and o
