  1. Salam I recommend the 15 Whispered prayers from Imam Al Sajjad (as). They are beautiful duas! Here's the link to them: http://www.al-islam.org/sahifa-al-kamilah-sajjadiyya-imam-zain-ul-abideen/fifteen-whispered-prayers-words-sayyid-al-sajidin Also, Dua Makkirumul Akhlaq is beautiful too: http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s20.htm Hope this helps! wassalam
  2. Salam alaykoum everyone, I would first like to extend my condolences to the lovers of Fatima (as) as we commemorate her martyrdom. I have heard the question being posed regarding why Sayeda Fatima (as) is not explicitly mentioned in the Quran, while other holy female figures such as Sayeda Maryam (as) are mentioned extensively. In fact, Sayeda Maryam (as) even has a chapter named after her. I could speculate and give a few explanations off the top of my head, but I'm wondering if anyone has actually delved into this topic and has come to supported conclusions. How do we explain to people that Sayeda Fatima (as) is among the most beloved women to God, even though her known names are not explicitly mentioned in the Quran. In fact, this could extend to her beloved husband Imam Ali (as) and their sons (as). I am aware of the Quranic verses that all Muslim scholars have attributed to Ahlul Bayt (as), such as the verses regarding the event of mubahala and other famous verses we commonly cite. My question is why the names of Ahlul Bayt (as) are not explicitly mentioned, and how we would best explain this to a non-Muslim. wasalam
  3. Salam sister, It seems like your thought processes on the topic have progressed since your first post, alhamdulilah. The comments on this are very interesting. I think we all make the mistake of thinking happiness is the natural state we should be in while living in this world. On the contrary, we have been promised struggle during this journey. Allah (swt) says in Surah el Inshiqaq (84:6) يا ايها الانسان انك كادح الى ربك كدحا فملاقيه O mankind, indeed you are laboring toward your Lord with [great] exertion and will meet it. If you think about it, it's the obstacles that make us stronger, it's during these times that we call upon Allah (swt) or seek intimacy with Him. I know that loneliness can consume you, but talk to Allah when you get lonely. Spiritual acts really help me get through it. And i get it, sometimes you just aren't in the mood to be spiritual and you just want to talk to someone, etc. Maybe try to cultivate friendships with likeminded people, even if it's online. Being able to discuss the things you're passionate about might help you fill that void a bit. Coming from someone who has suffered from exhausting loneliness, I did become happy when I had someone to talk to at one point. But in reality, even when you have someone, they can't fill that void 100 percent. Relationships are complicated, and unless you find someone who can relate to you in most ways, especially in the enduring ways (religiously/ spiritually) you're going to end up feeling lonely with them too. Until you find the person who will help you grow in those ways inshallah, you're honestly better off staying single and growing on your own.
