  1. I've heard of it but I don't know where to buy it and I can't read Arabic.
  2. Bismillahir arahman ir rahim Salamu alaikum! Someone asked me today what is the purpose of the Mahdi tearing out the cursed ones from the Prophet's Grave and I'm not sure how to answer that. any ideas? Is it to be an example or is there something to it that I'm not getting??
  3. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum I am having a hard time finding my usual duas for ashura and Muharram. one is for Ashura but another is to be said for 40 mornings and I don’t remember the name. Help please? Shukran.
  4. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum! I live in AK and there is no Shi'a masjid or community center that I can go to for Prayer times or charts, or what have you. My husband is able to look at the sun and moon and tell times but I am not. Does anyone know of a good site to calculate it? or should I stick to websites that tell you the direction of the sun?
  5. Salamu Alaikum! I just bought my first Qur'an and I'm not sure where to store it. Someone said not in the room that you sleep in. The only rooms that people don't sleep in is the garage, but then it's not accessible. Shukran.
  6. Thank you for the input. We are still having earthquakes. We have had over 1000 earthquakes since Friday. A lot of us are still nervous and anxious. I have been trying to recite as much as possible.
  7. Thank you. It was so scary. The only thing I remembered was Ya Ali. I made my daughter say it. It stopped my kids from saying much doomy things while driving in the aftermath.
  8. Salamu Alaikum! I live in AK and we just had 2 big earthquakes. It's a state emergency. My husband says it's the coming of the Mahdi. We're already at home now. Roads are dangerous right now. Are there any Duas I can make for the earthquakes? Shukran.
  9. Why are the Shi'a being prevented from observing this month? Sorry for my ignorance
  10. i have no mosque that I can go to. only sunnis and Salafis here
  11. I live in Alaska. There is no Shi'a center here. Also, many muslims here pray according to Mecca time, not the city we actually live in.
  12. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum! I am confused about Prayer times. Do I observe it by eye, or stick to prayer schedule? Its very confusing to me. Another muslim that I know of, taught me tell the prayer times using a website that can tell you the degree of the sun's location in the sky. ***Note*** I live in Alaska - the land of the midnight sun. So in the summer, -2degrees, the sun has been down quite a bit. But in the winter time, its somewhat an accurate estimate. I am just very confused by it all. Shukran.
  13. when I read that, it reminded me of how the name of 'Ali (a.s.) was cursed on the pulpit. But now, with all the protests of al-Baqee destruction, the ayat also reminds me of that a lot.
  14. Wasn't Imam Ali's (as) ruined in the masjids?
  15. Oh ok. So what was Ishaq's roles of duties?
  16. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum I was wondering why Ibrahim (a.s.) And Ishmael (a.s.) Built the masjid together, but not Ishaq? Shukran.
  17. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum 114 وَمَن أَظلَمُ مِمَّن مَنَعَ مَساجِدَ اللَّهِ أَن يُذكَرَ فيهَا اسمُهُ وَسَعىٰ في خَرابِها ۚ أُولٰئِكَ ما كانَ لَهُم أَن يَدخُلوها إِلّا خائِفينَ ۚ لَهُم فِي الدُّنيا خِزيٌ وَلَهُم فِي الآخِرَةِ عَذابٌ عَظيمٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-man ʾaẓlamu mimman manaʿa masājida llāhi ʾan yudhkara fīhā smuhū wa-saʿā fī kharābihā ʾulāʾika mā kāna lahum ʾan yadkhulūhā ʾillā khāʾifīna lahum fī d-dunyā khizyun wa-lahum fī l-ʾākhirati ʿadhābun ʿaẓīmun TRANSLATION Who is a greater wrongdoer than him who denies access to the mosques of Allah lest His Name be celebrated therein, and tries to ruin them? Such ones may not enter them, except in fear. There is disgrace for them in this world, and there is for them a great punishment in the Hereafter. Is this a reference to Imam All (a.s.) Or the Ahlul Bayt in general? Shukran.
  18. Ahhh. I understand now. Would it be like a mental block? Like no matter the evidence, they block out obvious truths/facts.
  19. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum, I was just reading Surah al-Baqarah, verse 88 وَقالوا قُلوبُنا غُلفٌ ۚ بَل لَعَنَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِكُفرِهِم فَقَليلًا ما يُؤمِنونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-qālū qulūbunā ghulfun bal laʿanahumu llāhu bi-kufrihim fa-qalīlan mā yuʾminūna TRANSLATION And they say, ‘Our hearts are uncircumcised.’1 Rather Allah has cursed them for their unfaith, so few of them have faith. Uncircumcised: unconverted, heathen, faithless; cf. 4:155. In Leviticus 26.41, it is said of the Israelites, ‘Then when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they pay for their sin, I will remember my covenant with Jacob … ,’ and in Jeremiah 9.26: ‘Even the whole house of Israel is uncircumcised in heart … .’ There are other similar expressions and phrases in the Bible: “uncircumcised lips” (Exodus 6.12 and 6.30); “their ear is uncircumcised and they cannot hearken” (Jeremiah 6.10); “uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh” (Ezekiel 44.7, 9); “uncircumcised in heart and ears” (Acts 7.51), “putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ” (Colossians. I got this from. al-quran.info, and I still can't figure out what it means. I would deeply appreciate some help. Shukran.
  20. Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim Salamu Alaikum! What is the Islamic way to treat pests such as mosquitoes, spiders, mice, etc. ? Especially when found in your home? I am not sure what is Islamic or realistic, or whatever. Shukran.
  21. Is it legal? Probably not. But a lot guys say they don't have a job but need a wife because its their "right".
  22. so you guys are saying that all woman have to say yes even if she doesn't want to be married. no matter what? How is this any different than rape?
  23. No one is preventing a man from doing anything. If he wants to do something, he'll do it no matter what. I am referring to a woman's rights. a woman can say yes, but she can also say no. And you HAVE TO respect it. thats called consent.
  24. Do you feel that it is Islamic to pressure women into polygyny? Is that any different than pressuring women to get married in general? Aren't women allowed their own choices.
