  1. This made me chuckle Thank you for taking the time to reply to me.
  2. Insha'Allah my intent will be only to please Allah. It's weird how such simple advice can change someone's mindset. Thank you.
  3. Salaam alaykum everyone, as the title may suggest, I am slightly nervous about talking to a potential wife for the first time. First things first, she is Iraqi and so am I. I have met her once not too long ago but I've never really talked to her and now both sides of the family are considering we make a contract for a while, in that time we can talk and get to know each other (over the phone). As much as I agree with this idea, I cannot help but feel overwhelmed with what I should ask or do. She lives abroad but in the west as well, from what I've noticed her Arabic is quite stronger than mine which is what's making me feel so ashamed and nervous in the first place, not that my Arabic is awful.. but you know how Iraqis sometimes say random words you've never heard of? I experience that a lot with my family and I don't know how bad that will be perceived. Also I believe her ability in speaking English is rather limited so language wise we aren't really at a great start. I really don't want to mess this up and make myself seem stupid so I've come here to ask my fellow brothers and sisters who have gone through the talking stage some questions, what things am I expected to be asked and what should I be asking? Anything particularly relating to our Iraqi background might be helpful too or just general marriage advice. Also if you have any recommended reading on marriage then don't hesitate to share! I was hoping this thread could be helpful for people in the future who might be in the same problem because personally I couldn't find much advice on this online. P.S I have never talked much to women either sooo that's another reason why I'm nervous. Many thanks and may Allah bless all of you :)
  4. Hello? I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post it but can the moderators please approve it or something? Thanks.
  5. Salaam brothers and sisters. As a follower of Sayed Sistani, may Allah prolong his life, I have come to ask whether some types of Prawns are considered halal or haraam. I am fairly certain that the normal type of Prawn is halal as well as King Prawn. However, as I was shopping for some fish at a Fish store, I came across a type of Prawn known as Tiger Prawn. It's the first time I've seen it and it is also surprisingly very expensive. I was wondering if this type of Prawn is haraam or if there are any other type of prawns which are haraam? Thank you in advance
  6. Salaam brothers and sisters I have been debating with my friend lately as to why we don't eat Pork and meat that hasn't been slaughtered in the halal way. I showed him a lot of the reasons and scientific evidence out there, many which I got from the ShiaChat itself. However in the end he ended up saying that eating Pork or non halal meat hasn't ever negatively effected him or his family and friends. He continues to explain that his grandfather who's 70 is very healthy and fit, as well as how healthy he is (which is all true). So in that regard I unfortunately didn't know how to respond, so I was wondering, are there any other reasons out there? I really want to understand this myself to be honest. I also know that, even if Pork was supposedly healthy, we still wouldn't eat it because it doesn't have a neck. Thank you.
