  1. I don't know if he could or couldn't afford it. I don't know him direcly. But I was told he wanted to and his family was trying to find someone to do it for him.
  2. Thank to both of you. it's definitely dawn. My city's dawn according to google is 5:04 and sunrise is 5:37. The app has fajr at 3:27am.
  3. Assalam aleikom, I am confused on the timing of when fasting begins. I know there are hundreds of forums covering this. My confusion stems from the following: my shia companion app says that Fajr (Dawn) begins around 3:00 am, however, when I google Dawn time for my city it says it is at around 5:00 in the morning. I have no idea how the app is calculating it and am inclined to go with the latter time and hoping it's correct since it is not likely that I can wake up at 2:30am to eat. Please let know your thoughts. Thanks. Wa Salam. TLH
  4. Asalam Aleikom, Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I couldn't find a better one. Someone I know passed away and it was his intention to do hajj but could not afford it. Does anybody know of a group or people who could do this hajj on behalf of the deceased? I once was surfing the web and found a foundation that has a section that offered these services where you pay a small sum to needy people who could in turn do these services. I have since forgotten the website address. If anyone knows any entity that does these services for people please let me know. I would prefer a country with a less developed economy since I plan on helping the deceased's family by paying for it but I have limited funds and obviously it would be cheaper to hire someone in, say, Iraq than U.K. A shia would have to do the Hajj. Thanks. wa salam. TLH

  6. Thanks for the link. Crazy story. Glad it wasn't the real deal :-)
  7. Dear brother, Thank you for the time you took in answering my questions and the material. I will have a look.
  8. Assalamo aleikom, if this topic has been discussed elsewhere, I apologize in advance for posting. I was reading about the end of the world and Allah (swt) sending Malek Maut to take the lives of the inhabitants of earth. Then He sends him to each of the Heavens to take their lives. And he finally reaches Jibrael until Malek Maut is the last one to become deceased. A few questions I have: 1. who are the inhabitants of the 7 heavens? Is it just jinn and angels? Are there any humans like living prophets there? 2. If we die before then do we miss the calamities of the world's destruction (the first blow of the trumpet etc) or are we raised from the dead in order to experience the destruction of the worlds? 3. Do the people who are in paradise now like the prophets, do they "die" again or did they "skip" this event. (Tnis sort of ties to momens who have died before the last day...and whether they skip this event as well. If there are any interesting reads out there that have answers to some of these questions, I would apreciate links. Thanks. salams. TLH
  9. Salaam-aleikom, Does anyone know the hadith of the Imam of Ahl Bait which says something to the effect of anybody who takes the 10th of Muharram as a barakat will be at the bottom pit of hell with Ibn Ziyad and Umar ibn saa'd? Looking for this narration. Thank you
  10. Assalam o aleikom brothers and sister. I have a favor to ask you, would mind pray for me in your next prayer for an interview I just had. I really need this job. Your duas are much appreciated!
  11. "Also Mu`awiyah narrated virtues of al-Hassan, he wouldn't do this if he hated him or didn't want him to become Caliph." 1) he didn't. 2) let's say he did for the sake of argument. Surely youre intelligent enough to know that just because a politician praises someone doesn't necessarily mean they like that person (eg Stalin/Lenin).
  12. Brother - with the utmost respect, please do basic research on Muawiya, who he was and what he stood for. Forget that both his parents were the staunchest enemies of the Prophet (sass). This is the man who has the blood of the prophet's family on his hands. if I tell you a man is responsible for the death of Imam Hassan (as) and whose son, becuse of tbe father's treachery in keeping with his treaty, was responsible for the death of Imam Husayn, would you put a r.a. next to that man's name? This phenomenon of praising Muawiya is a recent of phenomenon of the last 150 years or so. Islamic scholars have long found him guilty of the most grave sins. Tadkhirath al Khawwas page 192 we read: "Shuaby states that Mu'awiya sent a message to Jada binte al-Ash'ath bin al Qays that if you poison Hasan then I shall marry you to Yazeed and in addition to this I shall give 100,000 dirhams. When Hasan was martyred Judh sent a message to Mu'awiya asking that he fulfil his side of the deal. Mu'awiya sent the money but said "I reject that matter of Yazeed since I want him to remain alive, had this matter not occurred then I would have married you to Yazeed." The Quran has an entire chapter attacking the hypocrites. Thise hypocrites would be considered untouchable sahaba by ahl Sunna standards. Islam is meant to make sense and be logical. When you say so and so (r.a.) killed so and so (r.a.) does that sound logical to you?
  13. We use the scales of the quran to judge the sahaba and the wives. If Allah SWT reprimands some of the sahaba then we do as well. If he reprimands some of the wives then we accept God's judgement. Not all are equal. Here are the sunni hadiths regarding the birth.
  14. Today's muslims are like the christians who followed Paul. They became the majority while the minority stuck to the True path (seratal mostaghim).
