  1. What is the meaning of the below and does anyone happen to know where the extract is from? إذا عطش قلبك فلا تسقه إلا بالقرآن وإذا استوحش فلا تؤنسه إلا بذكر الرحمن ... فمن أوى إلى الله آواه ... ومن فوض أمره الى الله كفاه .. ومن باع نفسه الى الله اشتراه فطوبى لمن آواه ربه وكفاه واشتراه فرضي عنه وأرضاه .. جعلني الله وإياكم منهم
  2. Once upon a time I used to be quite strong in my beliefs but as the years have gone on, meeting new people and having new discussions has left me lost and aimless in terms of the 'path' that I follow. Of course I am Muslim - in that I believe in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, his Prophets (pbut), his angels and the Holy Book. However as of late I have really been struggling to find my feet either in the shia thought of school or sunni (originally raised as a shia) - there are some aspects which just don't sit right with me and I can feel my heart reject it - but then I worry that the truth is merely being rejected as a result of my own unworthiness. I fear for my afterlife as I know there are certain elements within shia'ism that, should you not adhere to, will cause you grief in the next world i.e. belief in Imam Mahdi. My heart feels heavy, confused and lost. I want to find the truth but I feel whenever I try to it's as if I am knocking my head on a wall. Does anyone have any advice or ever been in a similar situation?
  3. Salam, Can anyone tell me how to perform salatul Jummah the Shia way please!!!!!
  4. If one has to carry out Ghusl Hayz and also Ghusl Janabat, which niyaat do you do first or does it suffice to do niyaat for one of those types of ghusl?
  5. Yes..my local masjid actually provides small little sheets with the dua written on it for anyone who doesn't know it
  6. Salaam, I think this this is a great post so thank you to the OP for raising it since it's a question that's been on my mind too. Now the main argument for Imam Ali not refuting the caliphs of those times is due to the sake of unity and patience etc - However what I can't seem to get my head around is that when Imamat is such a fundamental aspect of the religion - WHY or HOW could Imam Ali allow them to continue misleading people into believing that the Caliphate was ordained by the Prophet (saww)? This is why we have a huge group of Sunnis who don't know/accept Imamat altogether - So when the religion was at such a risk - Why wasn't something more serious done to rid all this confusion? I'd really appreciate any useful insights
  7. One of the recommended acts for laylatul qadr is: 14. Recite a hundred rakats and it is preferable that in each rakat after the recitation of Sura Fatiha, Sura Ikhlaas be recited ten times.(It can be recited as 6 day salat if someone has Qaza or sitting ) Can someone please explain how to carry this the name out I'm a little confused?
  8. Good point - any thoughts regarding this would be appreciated
  9. Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard the truthful and trusted by Allah (i.e., the Prophet (ﷺ) ) saying, "The destruction of my followers will be through the hands of young men from Quraish." Sahih al-Bukhari 7058 In-book reference : Book 92, Hadith 10 Who could this particular hadith be in reference to? Who were the youngest amongst the companions and followers of this time?
  10. I searched for this and there was a part missing at the end of the hadith: Narrated `Abdullah: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "I am your predecessor at the Lake-Fount (Kauthar) and some men amongst you will be brought to me, and when I will try to hand them some water, they will be pulled away from me by force whereupon I will say, 'O Lord, my companions!' Then the Almighty will say, 'You do not know what they did after you left, they introduced new things into the religion after you.'"
