  1. I don't understand what Southern European countries should do. I personally follow Sistani. From his website: " However, North Asian countries, China, Russia, Azerbaijan and European countries will celebrate Eid on Thursday. " but quoting few posts ago I'm confused :S
  2. Salam sister. Thank you thank you thank you. This was so refreshing to read. I'm very motivated to undertake this new path in Iran. It's beautiful beyond expressible thoughts. This is something I've explicitly asked God in my du'aas and He responded beautifully not so long after, not only with being given this amazing opportunity itself but also with an additional gift: the very next day I was informed about the course, I got a call from the iranian center where I converted. They told me that a girl who won a quran quiz game decided to hand over specifically to me the prize she had won: a pl
  3. He actually suggested mutah but with certain conditions (no physical contact of any sort) because he doesn't want to lose his virginity in a temporary marriage. Mutah in this case would be just for the period prior the ceremony. But of course nothing has been decided yet. It's only a possibility, for now it's all theoretical. Yes, I'm going to study in Qom. For a year, then I'll see what happens. I think I will learn so much from living there even for just a year. I can't draw my conclusions now. My parents are very supportive by the way, they have my back, so to say Yes, I understand what
  4. Salam sis. Thank you so much for your kind words. You are very right, I should cultivate more tawakkul. Because at the end of the day it's only Him who puts into effect what I'm destined with. Regarding letting go of everything, yes, it's not easy, but I'm working on that. The past doesn't represent who I am at all. So who judges me on what I have done it's not a good person to begin with. As you wisely point out no one is free from guilt. Thank you again. I'm not from the US but from Europe (from a very malfunctioning country) so I don't think it's in his interests to have my s
  5. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته (I'm not very sure if this is the appropriate section to post this topic, in case it's not, please forgive me). I'm a female revert (almost two months now) and I'm experiencing something that is weighing on my heart. I am very confused regarding marriage. Being born in the west, in a predominantly Catholic country, in a quite liberal family, I was never exposed to the sacredness of marriage and that has mentally affected me (you would think that my catholic upbringing should have helped up to a point but believe me when I say it di
  6. Salam. It seems that I can't do it right, I've just realized that I keep making mistakes with my wudu. I realized that I have been wiping my head the wrong way ( not from the upper part - downwards but the other way round). This is making me very upset because all I want to do is to please God but instead I keep making these silly mistakes. I must say that praying here at home is very difficult. Sometimes I'm forced to postpone my prayers because my mum's dogs are around the house so by the time I finish my wudu they would cross my path anyway as I head to my room. This is quite upsetting.
  7. Salam, I have a question: Why is temporary marriage still considered bad even if done and intended as an "engagement" phase? I've read many opinions against it. If certain limits are decided and agreed by both (like no physical contact of any sort, ...) then I don't see the problem. Of course, on the other hand, I think, It shouldn't be for a very extended period of time if the ultimate goal is permanent marriage.
  8. Oh! Thank you so much for researching further! I was slowly giving all the qadha prayers but it seems like I don't have to anymore.
  9. yes, precisely. For some reason I've always been surrounded by people who were far removed from God/spirituality in a broader sense. And even if they claimed they were, their actions, their interests showed the exact opposite. Alhamdulillah I've never felt like this. I accept what it comes.
  10. "Your sickness is from you, but you do not perceive it and your remedy is within you, but you do not see it You presume you are a small entity, but within you is enfolded the entire Universe. You are indeed the evident/clear book, by whose alphabet’s the hidden becomes manifest." Imam Ali (a.s.) I've always been a very lonely person, mainly because I never truly found like minded souls. After converting I distanced even more from the few friends I had. This is good because I don't want to live in between, I don't want to be a hypocrite and when I embrace something I want to embrace it full
  11. "How is it that slaying a human being is equal to slaying all human beings and saving a person is equal to saving all human beings? To answer this question, it is only possible to say that in this verse, the Qur'an has referred to a social and training fact. The person, who slays an innocent human being, has such a preparation, in fact, to kill some other innocent persons, too. This person is, indeed, a homicide whose prey is innocent human beings. And, we know that there is no difference between the innocent persons from this point of view. On the other hand, the person who, because
  12. just today my mom told me "go get some sun" but then I reminded her that I can't take off my hijab, not even in our garden (since at least 5 houses overlook it). She got upset (it's been only 3/4 weeks I've started wearing it) saying that I will have severe deficiencies. I guess she has a point (I'm lactose intolerant + don't eat fish). I will try my best maybe to put a shield or something on my balcony railing and sit down so nobody can see.
  13. oh! okay, I get it now. I thought rukn = wajib but I see how I was wrong. now everything makes sense. thank you for clearing that up!
  14. Thank you all for taking the time to read my topic. I feel somehow relieved to know that either way it's okay and it's up to me. Step by step. Thank you brother @mostafaa for the detailed information about the validity of prayers. So If I decide to make up all wrong prayers, should I perform them with the intention of qadha sticking to the rukn parts only? (is qunoot part of the obligatory acts?)
