  1. Imam Ali (AS): ‘whoever makes a good assumption about you, then prove him right.’ Tuḥaf al-‘Uqūl, p. 82 When you hear that you could improve more than your classmates in a certain subject, when you hear that you could precede others in doing a good deed and when you hear that your country could be proud of you in future, then do something that such suggestions and assumptions would come true. Prove them right.
  2. Ziarat Aal-e-Yaseen is an important Ziarat of Imam Mhdi (a.s.) . It is actually a Hadith Qudsi (direct saying of Allah(swt)) as reported in Mafatih-al-Jinnan. According to the traditions, "Aal-e-Yaseen" is equivalent to Aal-e-Muhammad (SAWA) and is the correct pronunciation (Qira'at) of verse 37:130 of the Holy Quran. Beside its superb beauty, one of the interesting points about this Duaa is that, in it, we confess all the central beliefs one by one. It is also recommended to be recited to obtain relief from oppression.

  3. The Prophet (SAWA) said: ‘Take account of your selves before you are held to account, and evaluate them before you are held for evaluation, and prepare yourselves for the Greatest Exposure.’ [Bihar al-Anwar,v. 70, p. 73, no. 26]
  4. Salaam Thank you. May Allah accept our deeds and forgive our sins. Eid Mubarak...
  5. Salam Thanks to you.I also Wish you and your family all have a blessed Eid ... happy Eid Al-Fitr.
  6. One of the good practices that is common among Muslims these days is attending the graves of the deceased and remembering and honoring them. The Apostle of Allah (P.B.U.H. & H.H.) said, “Visit the graves so that you would remember the Hereafter.” The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H. & H.H.) said, “Whoever goes to visit their parents’ graves or the grave of each one of them every Friday, both their sins will be forgiven and they will be counted as benevolent children.” We also read, “Supplication next to the graves of one’s parents is answered.” Imam al-Riḍā (P.B.U.H.) said, “If Sūrat al-Qadr is recited seven times when visiting the grave of the faithful, both the deceased person and visitor will be forgiven by Allah.” And it is related in the traditions that the deceased are informed of your visiting them and will be delighted and will get interested in and fond of you.
  7. Imam Ali (AS): "O people! Verily this day of yours is the day when the righteous are awarded and the wretched are losers. It is a day which is similar to the one on which you shall be standing (before your Lord). Therefore, when you come out of your homes to go to places of your prayer, remind yourselves about the day when you (your souls) shall come out of your bodies to go to your Lord. When you stand on places of your prayer, remind yourselves of your standing in presence of your Lord (on the day of Judgement). And when you return to your homes (after prayer), remind yourselves about your returning to your homes in Paradise. O Servants of Allah! Verily the minimum reward for those men and women who fasted (during Ramadan), is an Angel, who calls out to them on the last day of the month of Ramadan (saying): O Servants of Allah! rejuice the glad tiding that all your previous sins have been forgiven." Congratulations on the Eid al-Fitr...
  8. Yes. you can use a small Quran for surahs or a paper for duas or even your phone... and join us in your prayers.
  9. Zakat Al-Fitra Q. What is Zakatul Fitrah? A: It is religious tax/alms (zakat) paid on the day of Eid when Muslims break the fasting period at the end of the month of Ramadhan. This alms is known as Zakat al-Fitrah. Q. When does Zakat Al-Fitrah become wajib? A. Payment of Fitrah becomes obligatory after sunset on the eve of Eid al- Fitr. The Fitrah should be kept aside and paid on Eid al-Fitr before Eid prayers or before midday for those who cannot say their Eid prayers. It is necessary to have obligatory intention (niyyah) of giving Fitrah for God's pleasure only. Q. What happens if someone forgets or does not give Zakat Al-Fitrah on time? A. If one does not give out or set aside the Fitrah within the due time, he should give the Fitrah later, on the basis of precaution, without making the niyyah of adaa or qadhaa but only Qurbatan Ilallah. Q. Can we give Zakat Al-Fitrah in advance? A. If you wish to send Fitrah earlier that day of Eid so that it reaches the needy on time, then you can send it as a temporary loan to the needy and then change your intention from loan to Fitrah on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. Q. To whom is Zakat Al-Fitrah obligatory? A. Paying Fitrah is obligatory on every Muslim who is mature (baligh), sane, financially able, and conscious on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. Fitrah should also be paid on behalf of all dependents (e.g. wife, children) whom one supports financially. Q. How much should we pay for Zakat Al-Fitrah? A. Fitrah for a person is given on a weight of three kilograms (one sa`a) on any food commodity like wheat, barley, rice, millet, raisins or dates. In the UK it would be £5 per person and in the US $10 per person for example. Q. Whom should we give the Zakat Al-Fitrah to? A. It is given to the needy who are unable to meet their own or their dependants annual living expenses, nor do they have the means to do so through earning. Ayatullah As-Seestani says that the needy who is given the fitrah must be a Shi`ah Ithna `Ashari. Q. Who should not be given the Zakat Al-Fitrah? A. A needy who: consumes alcohol, does not say his daily prayers (salat), commits sins openly, or he who is known to use the Fitrah in sinful way. Q. Are there any additional rules that we need to be aware of? A. Following are some important rules: (i) Zakat Al-Fitrah should not be sent outside the town one resides in, if there are deserving mumineen in that town. (ii) Zakat Al-Fitrah from a non-Sayyid cannot be given to a needy Sayyid; the reverse is permissible. (iii) A needy should be given at least one Zakat Al-Fitrah (iv) Amongst the needy, relatives should be preferred over others when giving Fitrah.
  10. EID PRAYER It is recommended, thereafter, to offer the ‘Id Prayer (Salat al-’Id), which consists of two units. In the first unit, recite Surah al-Faatehah and Surah al-A’la (No. 87). After the recitation of these Surahs, say the Takbir statement (i.e. Allahu-akbar) five times and raise your hands for Qunut after each Takbir, saying: اللّٰهُمَّ [اَنْتَ اَهْلُ‏] اَهْلَ الْكِبْرِيَاءِ وَ الْعَظَمَةِ وَ اَهْلَ الْجُودِ وَ الْجَبَرُوتِ وَ اَهْلَ الْعَفْوِ وَ الرَّحْمَةِ وَ اَهْلَ التَّقْوَى وَ الْمَغْفِرَةِ اَسْاَلُكَ بِحَقِّ هٰذَا الْيَوْمِ الَّذِي جَعَلْتَهُ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ عِيدا وَ لِمُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللّٰهِ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ ذُخْرا وَ شَرَفا وَ مَزِيدا اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُدْخِلَنِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ اَدْخَلْتَ فِيهِ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اَنْ تُخْرِجَنِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوءٍ اَخْرَجْتَ مِنْهُ مُحَمَّدا وَ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ اَجْمَعِينَ اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا سَاَلَكَ مِنْهُ عِبَادُكَ الصَّالِحُونَ وَ اَعُوذُ بِكَ فِيهِ مِمَّا اسْتَعَاذَ مِنْهُ عِبَادُكَ الصَّالِحُونَ الْمُخْلِصُونَ You may then say the Takbir statement for the sixth time, do the genuflection (ruku’), and prostrate yourself (sujud). When you stand up for the second unit, recite Surah al-Faatehah and Surah al-Shams (No. 91) and then say the Takbir statement four times only raising the hands for Qunut after each statement. After that, say the fifth Takbir statement and continue the prayer. After accomplishment of the prayer, say the famous Tasbih al-Zahra’(a.s.). Narrations have mentioned many supplicatory prayers to be said after the ‘Id Prayer; rather, the best of them may be the forty-sixth supplication of al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah It is also recommended to offer the ‘Id Prayer outdoors, directly on the ground without putting a carpet or any other thing under the feet, to return from a way other than the one taken in the coming, and to pray Almighty Allah for accepting the acts of one’s brethren-in-faith. { Mafatih Al- Jinan} The time for Eid prayers is from sunrise till Zuhr. {http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01180/} Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Azha prayers are obligatory during the time of Imam (A.S.), and it is necessary to offer them in congregation. However during the present times when the Holy Imam is in occultation, these prayers are Mustahab, and may be offered individually as well as in congregation. {http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01180/}
  11. Holy Prophet (pbuh): One who perceives the month of Ramazan and (does not strive in it and hence) is not forgiven, Allah distances him from Himself. Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 74, pg. 74
  12. The Messenger of God (pbuh): ‘the gaze of a child at his parents, out of love for them, is [akin to] worship.’ Tuḥaf al-‘Uqūl, p. 46 One could worship God through looking and gazing like when the pilgrims of Mecca sit in front of the Ka’ba and gaze at it. Likewise, a child would be worshipping God when gazing at their father or mother out of love and affection; the kind of look that would give warmth to a mother’s heart and remove tiredness and fatigue from a father’s body. One in Mecca and the other at home, but both are acts of worship.
  13. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us. very grateful.
  14. The Messenger of God (pbuh): ‘God’s satisfaction lies in the satisfaction of parents and His displeasure [also lies] in their displeasure.’ Mustadrak al-Wasā’l, vol. 15, p. 176 The one who displeases their father or distresses their mother cannot expect to have God’s satisfaction and contentment. God’s satisfaction is entwined with the satisfaction of one’s father and mother. When your mother has a happy smile on her face, then you ought to know that God is happy with you at that moment.
