  1. Oh, I wasn't aware of that. Thanks for letting me know. Apologies sister. P.S. the soya biryani recipe looks delicious.
  2. SalamAlaikum, I am currently reading topics on Islamic hermeneutics, i.e. interpretation of the religious scripture, Quran. What is the difference between Islamic hermeneutics and TAFSEER? IHH
  3. SalamAlaikum, Today we see several men noha khwans (groups) that recite nohas online, publish videos etc, for example Voices of Passion, Ali Fadhil etc. Does Islam allow females to do this if they do not show their faces in the videos and only have an audio playback of their voices reciting nohas etc. to spread the message of Islam and Karbala? Several say they aren't allowed, however when we check with Imam Sistani, he says it is permissible as long as the lady does not intend to develop wrong feelings in the male's minds... IHH
  4. Wassalam brother, Sometimes our duas are not answered. Some of those reasons eventually become obvious to us with the passage of time and some don’t. However, as Muslims we should understand the reasons to help us better cope with situations when our Duas are not being answered. This can help us influence factors that are under our direct control. We know from Quran and Hadith the many reasons behind duas not being accepted. Some of them are the following: The Dua that a person is asking may not be good for the person but that person may not know the reasons yet; A persons’ sins may be in the way of accepting Duas; A person earns his living through unlawful means (haraam means); A person may be asking for forbidden or sinful items; In the Quran, Allah says: “And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you” [Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:216] According to a hadith of the Prophet (SAW): “There is no Muslim who calls upon his Lord with a dua in which there is no sin or severing of family ties, but Allah will give him one of three things: Either He will answer his prayer quickly, or He will store (the reward for) it in the Hereafter, or He will divert an equivalent evil away from him.” They said: “We will say more dua.” He said: “Allah’s bounty is greater.” On a related note, Umm Salamah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say: “There is no calamity that befalls one of the Muslims and he responds by saying ‘Innaa Lillaahi wa innaa ilahi raaji’oon, Allahumma ujurni fi museebati w’ukhluf li khayran minha (Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; O Allah, reward me in this calamity and compensate me with something better than it),’ but Allah will compensate him with something better than it.” Another hadith: Whatever Allah has decreed for His believing slave is a blessing even if that is in the form of withholding; it is a favor even if that is in the form of a trial, and the calamity decreed by him is fair even if it us painful. Many ask if Allah is not being merciful with them when not answering their prayers. (The real reason is that) What Allah chooses for His slave is better for him than what he chooses for himself. Allah is more merciful towards His slaves than they themselves or their mothers are. If something happens to them that they dislike, that is better for them than if it did not happen, so His decree is all kindness and mercy. If the slave submits to Allah and has certain faith that all dominion belongs to Allah and all things are under His command, and that He is more merciful to him than he is himself, then he will find peace of mind regardless of whether his need is met or not. May Allah bless you. Hope this helps. IHH
  5. SalamAlakum, What is Islam's stance on slavery? There are 29 verses in the Quran which refer to "those whom your right hands possess." From common sensical understanding these refer to the slaves of that time. How can we explain to a non-muslim that Islam indeed abolished slavery or reformed it? Please give references for any answers, views and also hadiths. IHH
  6. Dear sister/brother I think you are on the wrong chat website. This is only for Islamic discussions and discourses and not for food recipes. Sorry about that. IHH

  8. SalamAlaikum, Quick question on which I would like to know views and their sources please. Are the Quranic verses meant and based only on the historical issues that surrounded the time of the Prophet Mohammad s.a.w. and before it (Prophets in the past/Injeel, Zabur, Taurat) or do the verses also hold modern day implications and applications within the 21st century? What are the views of different scholars in Shia IthnaAsheri Islam related to the application of Islam on such grounds? IHH
