  1. Assalamu alaikum. Will Allah swt forgive someone if they hurt the feelings of another person? In my case, it was not done intentionally. Or does the person have to forgive you for Allah to forgive you in the end? Please help.
  2. Salam, I feel like I no longer have interest in anything anymore. The main reason why I feel like this because I feel so distant from Allah swt. I know there is something I do(which probably is not a sin) that Allah does not like and I keep promising myself that I'll stop that act and yet I keep going back to it again and again. 2 days ago I made a promise to Allah that I'll stop the act and never do it again. Then I went back to my old ways and did it again. I just got tired of myself yesterday and made another promise that I'll stop the act and yet I broke it again. I'm not despairing of Allah's mercy but I feel so low and fed up with myself for doing what I do. I think Allah is tired of me too now.. I don't deserve to live on this earth knowing that I keep displeasing the creator. It's just that when I do something which I know is wrong or not morally right then it's a very big deal for me and it really affects me mentally and physically. This is leading me to becoming depressed and not wanting to do anything. But trust me I've tried to stop the act many times.. and I've been trying to stop for a year now yet I keep going back to it. So now I'm wondering whether I have to fast 3 days for every promise that I've broken? Because honestly I've lost count of how many promises to Allah I have broken. What should I do in this case? And how would you guys suggest I stop doing things that I know wouldn't please Allah? Again I don't think it's a sin but my heart just does not accept it whenever I do it. any answers would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Imam Ali(as) said, "Clothe yourself with shyness and armour yourself with loyalty; protect brotherhood and lessen conversation with women, and your eminence will be perfected." (Ghurar Al Hakim, no. 4536) what does the Imam mean when he says to lessen your conversation with women? Did he refer to non mahram women or just women in general?
  4. i wonder what you mean by fascinated by other cultures? Arent all people fascinated by other cultures which they want to know more about?

    Spread by the Sword?

    Brother @Qa'im, could you shed some light on this? I'm confused now. If Imam Ali was involved in organising the Muslims' army, this is basically like him being a part of an offensive war.
  6. Honestly, maybe I am taking everything too negatively. I havent experienced a situation where someone publicly bashed me or my religion but I still feel it everyday. Specially at my school, the white kids act like we're all immigrants who took over their country and now we're trying to force Islam down their throats. I live in Canada and we've even had anti islam protests here. But I am on social media a lot and thats usually where I see all the hate which makes me cringe and start believing that all Western people are like this. Maybe from now I'll try to ignore such people and just focus on my work and studies. I've trying doing this before as well and I was fine for a considerable period of time but now with all the recent attacks Im starting to feel the hate again..
  7. I do prefer living in the West as well when it comes to the education, jobs, and you're much safer here than if I lived in the Middle East for example. But sometimes I feel like I'm ready to give up all that just to live in peace in my home country where I'd have muslims around me and being a female, I wouldnt have to worry about leaving the house alone in fear that my hijab might get pulled off by some ridiculous creatures. And just seeing the way these people talk about Islam is like they view it as some Medieval age religion which was brought 1400 years ago just to terrorize people. Its truly saddening how they think all Muslims are terrorists or could become a terrorist one day or another.
  8. Salam, I feel like Im gradually getting tired of living in the West... Why should one live in a place where they're not appreciated? Where for every attack or bombing that takes place in the world you start seeing hashtags like '#stopislam' or '#islamiscancer'. And trust me, I've tried not to care about what people say but going through situations every day where you see a frown on peoples' faces when they just hear the word 'Islam', makes it worse for me. I know Islam is the right path and the Ahlulbayt (AS) are the best guides and I have no doubt about that. It just sickens me to live amongst such ignorance. Why should we live in fear for our wives, sisters and mothers when they go out that they can be victims of a hate crime? Would we not be happier in our home countries where people atleast wouldn't tell us to 'go back to where you came from' or that 'Islam has no place in a liberal Western society'? I feel like I'm just done living here in the West and I know there's a lot of corruption in Muslim countries too but atleast you have the same people as you, muslims around you, and atleast you wouldnt be considered a 'threat to Western society'. Could someone please give me some advice on this and how you deal with these situations? I feel like ignorance is one thing I cannot stand and now I'm seeing it every where thus it's bothering me a lot.
  9. Salam. Can someone please explain this hadith to me, if it's authentic or not. And if yes, what was the context of this narration? Amir a'-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said: Woman is evil, all in all; and the worst of it is that one cannot do without her
  10. Four explosions, two of them back-to-back, have rocked the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, killing 19 people and injuring 61 others. On Tuesday, a bomber struck a crowded area in the vicinity of the al-Samarrai Mosque in the Baghdad al-Jidida (New Baghdad) district in the east of the capital. According to Iraq’s al-Sumaria news website, another bombing hit the same area minutes later. The two explosions killed nine people and injured 30 others. Separately, a booby-trap blast hit the capital’s Rezvaniyeh district, killing one person and injuring five others. Elsewhere in the capital, another bomber set off an explosion in the al-Bayaa’ neighborhood in the capital’s al-Rashid district, killing nine people and injuring 26 others. http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2016/09/27/486584/Iraq-Baghdad
  11. Activists say pro-Saudi sources have alluded that al-Nimr's and other Shia prisoners' executions could be imminent. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/saudi-arabia-could-be-about-behead-crucify-ali-mohammed-al-nimr-1572851 May Allah protect Ali al Nimr and the oppressed from the barbaric Saudi regime. Please keep them in your prayers and try raising awareness!
  12. Salam. Recently I've come across many islamophobes online specially on YouTube. Even on lectures or videos that are meant for Muslims, you find these type of people everywhere who continously say bad things about the Prophet and the Quran. Should we even engage in dialogue with such people or is it better to leave them on their own? I feel like they'll only grow in number and they'll manage to indoctrinate the ignorants by feeding them what they want to hear. Today I came across a user that commented on a Muslim video who was saying that the Quran is violent and he continously kept saying stuff like the Prophet was a mass murderer.(May Allah forgive me). I tried explaining things to him but since he had no proof he just stuck to his misguided opinion.
  13. https://www.facebook.com/events/1896608230566157/?active_tab=posts Please show your support for Iraq by attending.
  14. Shia-sunni unity is a myth that should've been discarded long ago when the sunnis attacked the house of Fatima Zahra(sa). We Shias always suffer because of the actions of Sunnis. No matter how much we try to unite with them, they'll always still consider us 'kafir' according to their wahhabbi ideology. The main core of ISIS and wahhabbi thinking links back to Sunnism. And the ignorant West needs a reason to put us all in the same category.
  15. OFFICIALS: Bombings in Iraq kill atleast 23. Iraq's prime minister toured the site of a blast Sunday morning, hours after bombs hit two crowded commercial areas in Baghdad, killed at least 23 people and wounded 61, according to hospital and police officials. The bombings came near the end of the holy month of Ramadan, when the streets were filled with young people and families. www.abcnews.go.com
