  1. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته Translation in English: "ِAl-Muqaddas al-Ardabili (رضي الله عنه) was one of the greatest Shi'a scholars in history. One day, the father of this Muqaddas al-Ardabili (رضي الله عنه) was walking past a garden somewhere in Iran, and noticed an apple had fallen onto the ground. He desired the apple, and ate it, not knowing who owned this orchard. He then said, "what have I done? I ate this apple without permission from the owner of this garden." The speaker then commentates and tells a story of a Syrian scholar (ad-Daaraani) from the Syrian city of Dariyah. He told his student, "my son, if I die before you, I will come to you in your dream and tell you of what I see after death. And if you die before me, visit me in your dream and tell me what you see." The teacher died first, and visited the student a year later in his dream. The student asked him why he has visited him so late and not earlier. The sheikh said, "my student do not blame me, I was being punished in the barzakh (afterlife before Qiyamah) because one day, near the Bab as-Sagheer cemetary (in Syria) I noticed a camel carrying on his pack a load and on it some pieces of wood, I picked up a small piece of wood off of him to clean my teeth with, without permission of the owner of the camel. For that seemingly small crime, Allah kept me imprisoned in the grave for 1 entire year." Back to the story of the man and the apple... the man had regretted eating this apple and wished to seek forgiveness from the owner of the garden. He asked the locals where he lived so that he could go ask forgiveness for stealing the apple, and they laughed at him taking such a tiny action so seriously. He insisted, and they informed him he lives in a village very far away. After a long journey he arrived at the man's house, and told him that he one day passed by his garden and ate an apple which had fallen on the floor. The owner of the garden did not understand the issue, and the man told him he is trying to seek his forgiveness for eating it. Surprised he came all this way simply to seek forgiveness for this small act of theft, he told him he will forgive him on only one condition. "I have a daughter who cannot see, she is blind. She is deaf, she cannot hear. And, she cannot speak. Of course only he who has firm belief and fear of Allah will marry such a lady. If you wish to be forgiven for eating an apple from my orchard without my permission, you must marry this daughter of mine. I will give you one night to think about this, and I want you to inform me of your decision tomorrow." The man that night thought to himself that suffering in this world is better for him than suffering in the flames of Jahannam. He decided to take her in marriage. So he went to him the next day and informed him that he will marry her. The man accepted his proposal and he was then allowed to go into the house and see her (without the hijab/Islamic covering). The man entered the house and seen that she was a woman who was at the peak of beauty, seemingly unnatural beauty, as if she was a Hoori (women of Heaven). He also noticed that despite her beauty, she was not blind, and not deaf, and she could speak normally. He told the man that he might have been mistaken and his daughter was perfectly fine. The father of the girl told him, "you are right. I have raised her in such a way that she is completely blind (inattentive) to all that which Allah has forbidden. She is also deaf to all that which Allah has forbidden its hearing. And, she is unable to speak that which Allah has forbidden. She does not look at haram, nor does she speak haram, nor does she listen to haram. By God, I have fed her with all that which is halaal (permissible), and I have banished all that is impermissible from her upbringing, so she is like a pure white pearl. And I have prayed to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) that she one day is married to a young, religious believer who truly deserves her. And by God, you are that man. You have traveled a long, tedious journey only to apologize for eating one apple from my orchard. For that you may marry her and you are forgiven for your deed."
  2. loool Your purpose in life is to please Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), not women. Besides, if they were truly religious and faithful women, they wouldn't be backbiting you. Don't let it bother you akhi. Allahu Akbar!
  3. Our Kuwaiti friend over in London is one of the reasons Did Sunnis hate us before he rose to prominence? Yes. As much as after he became famous? No
  4. @3wliya_maryam @hasanhh ISIS treats “normal Sunni Muslims” in a friendly and kind manner, and this video is evidence to it. https://youtu.be/jOaBNbdUbcA Here, a VICE news reporter is with an ISIS “patrol officer”, filming him enforcing Sharia law in the Sunni Syrian city of Raqqa. Notice how he has good akhlaq with them and (seemingly) genuinely cares for their well-being. Of course if any of those civilians were Shia they’d be killed on the spot. But Sunnis are seen as true Muslims by IS and have their honor and dignity respected. So daesh governs them kindly. They see them as their brothers.
  5. Yes. Da3sh has made it clear who their enemy is. It's not even a conspiracy, it's a reality. ISIS views Shia as unbelievers and targets them more than anyone else. When they would invade a city, they had this little tradition they'd do where they would ask the town who the Sunnis were and who the Shia were. The Sunnis would be pardoned, and the Shia rounded up for massacre. When their media was all over the news, it would quote excerpts from the ancient Sunni Sheikhs saying the Shia are out of the fold of Islam and are not to be associated with. Notice how the Western Province of Iraq (al-Anbar) has literally no Shia. Why? Because the majority of them are ISIS-sympathizing Sunnis who view Shia blood as halaal. Know what really boggles my mind though?
  6. Honestly, the entire Muslim world is degenerating, getting 'westernized', and simply straying from the right path while losing its honor. We give no one a break, as Muslims we are obliged to enjoin the good and forbid the evil. I will list some examples Look at the Gulf nations, especially Saudi Arabia who deserves the most scold; 'Muslim' by name but constantly appearing on the news with disgusting acts of transgression. A few examples: the "Crown Prince" (who the majority of the Saudi Arabs love and support) publicly offering Kim Kardashian $10 million to spend a night with him (this is the custodian of the Sacred Mosque doing this..), constant aggression to and killing of Yemeni civilians, and being a slave to the West who has done countless evil acts against the Muslim ummah. Look at Iran--if you go to Tehran, you'll see many, or most of girls wearing some sort of hijab that covers only part of the hair and is a complete, shameless, direct disobedience to the laws of Islam. It gets worse, or so I've been told, that they'd 'fix up' when police come by, then put it back when they leave. I was glad to hear a Shia Islamic Republic was established, but if you really claim to represent the awaited Imam (ajtfs), then take Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) laws more seriously and enforce hijab better in your country. The beloved leader of the Egyptians, Jamal Abd an-Nasser (whom many Egyptians today name their kids after) laughing at the idea of enforcing hijab in his country, making jokes and mocking at those who support the idea. The Arabs betraying their Palestinian brothers Lebanon and Tunisia.. where do I start? Prostitution is legal, and like many other countries in the region (Levant as a whole and neighboring North African countries) alcohol is not prohibited. Some food for thought Of course no one can truly restore the glory of Islam except the awaited Imam (ajtfs), the hidden grandson of Muhammad (saww) so do not forget to pray constantly for the reappearance, the day the hearts of the believers will rejoice and the plans of the evil ones will be disrupted.
  7. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله
  8. In general, women are more emotional than men and want a relationship of mutual love & care, and to raise a family with their husband (not just a relationship of engaging in sexual acts like many men want), of course there are exceptions but this seems to be the case most of the time. In mut’ah, it is frowned upon to have kids in the temporary marriage, mut’ah is mainly just for fulfilling sexual desires on either side (there can definitely be exceptions though), likely would tarnish the woman’s reputation in the society, and doesn’t include the whole love & family part. Therefore most women would definitely prefer the permanent marriage option, which features safeguarding her reputation and having children among many other blessings that Allāh has blessed us with the sacred contract of [permanent] marriage. On a side note, mut’ah is extremely impractical in our day and age, almost never happens, and you’d be lucky to even find someone who’s done it. So I doubt you can get any answers based on experience. Note - All these benefits of permanent marriage definitely apply to men too of course, but OP wanted us to answer regarding women only.
  9. لا يا اخي it’s just an anti-smoking song chill Nasheed by a Sunni =/= salafi jihadist propaganda
  10. Wa alaykum as-salaam brother I am happy to hear you have been practicing Islam for a few months now. I recommend Surat ad-Dhuha (chapter 93). Although it is a little longer than the surahs you mentioned, it is still short with only 11 verses and has a beautiful message. Also, an app (iOs, unsure if on android) I have found to be helpful for helping beginners learn Qur'an/Quranic Arabic words is the "Quranic" app. It teaches Quranic passages/stories in a simple but effective way. Check it out if you'd like.
  11. A beautiful (Arabic) piece of poetry made into a nasheed for all those who smoke or take drugs, very strong words and extremely eloquent Note: -The Saudi Arabian flag in the thumbnail has nothing to do with the nasheed -The English translation can be found in the comment section, but do be warned that there are some immature comments there. "Would you buy death if it was sold, oh person, while you have children who are hungry?"
  12. Regardless, Iran still has the responsibility as a Muslim government to condemn China's actions, which it has not done at all yet. It has a voice but hasn't used it and chooses to stay silent. Such powerful words against Amrika all the time, but never anything about China..
  13. As much as I admire as-Sayyid al-Khomeini (رضي الله عنه) and his Islamic revolution and uprising, I fail to believe Iran is like it was under him. Why is the Islamic Republic silent? Should they not support their brothers and sisters in China? I in no way support or endorse Yasser Habib at all, but I have to agree with him that Iran is not doing the right thing by staying quiet about the events in China.
  14. Peace and blessings from Allāh be upon you all! I wanted to share my favorite Arab national anthem out of them all on here O Allah, I ask You to protect the oppressed inhabitants of the Middle East and of all the lands from the evils of the corrupt, imperialists, terrorists, and insincere, and I ask You to hasten the reappearance of our beloved Mahdi (aj) who shall bring peace to the world after this long period of suffering and evil!
  15. Beautiful man, taught by the most beautiful himself. This is how you act when you are raised, brought up, and taught by a Prophet of God. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and his teacher, the noble Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Alhamdulillah for having them as our guides and teachers.
  16. The conversation of Prophet Ibrahim ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) with his idol worshiping father إِذ قالَ لِأَبيهِ يا أَبَتِ لِمَ تَعبُدُ ما لا يَسمَعُ وَلا يُبصِرُ وَلا يُغني عَنكَ شَيئًا When he said to his father, ‘Father! Why do you worship that which neither hears nor sees, and is of no avail to you in any way? يا أَبَتِ إِنّي قَد جاءَني مِنَ العِلمِ ما لَم يَأتِكَ فَاتَّبِعني أَهدِكَ صِراطًا سَوِيًّا Father! Indeed a knowledge has already come to me which has not come to you. So follow me that I may guide you to a right path. يا أَبَتِ لا تَعبُدِ الشَّيطانَ ۖ إِنَّ الشَّيطانَ كانَ لِلرَّحمٰنِ عَصِيًّا Father! Do not worship Satan. Indeed Satan is disobedient to the All-beneficent. يا أَبَتِ إِنّي أَخافُ أَن يَمَسَّكَ عَذابٌ مِنَ الرَّحمٰنِ فَتَكونَ لِلشَّيطانِ وَلِيًّا Father! I am indeed afraid that a punishment from the All-beneficent will befall you, and you will become Satan’s accomplice.’ قالَ أَراغِبٌ أَنتَ عَن آلِهَتي يا إِبراهيمُ ۖ لَئِن لَم تَنتَهِ لَأَرجُمَنَّكَ ۖ وَاهجُرني مَلِيًّا He said, ‘Abraham! Are you renouncing my gods? If you do not relinquish, I will stone you. Keep away from me for a long while.’ قالَ سَلامٌ عَلَيكَ ۖ سَأَستَغفِرُ لَكَ رَبّي ۖ إِنَّهُ كانَ بي حَفِيًّا He said, ‘Peace be upon you! I shall plead with my Lord to forgive you. Indeed He is ever gracious to me. Let us learn from the noble ancestor of the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and pray for the forgiveness of our enemies, and be soft and gentle with them rather than putting in our best efforts to try and ruin their lives.
  17. Salaam, this right here is also extremely helpful and relevant. It's in Arabic (Iraqi dialect) and is 3 minutes. Highly recommend those who can understand to watch it Topic: Islam and love, not hatred and fitna
  18. Prophet Muhammad: “You won’t enter paradise until you believe, and you won’t believe until you love one another, shall I teach you something that once it’s achieved you will love one another?... spread peace (salaam) amongst yourselves.” Al-Kafi volume 2 Sahih Muslim, The book of Iman
  19. Salaam, can you tell me if therapy has helped you or not? I have people who tell me that it isn't good for a depressed person, as they don't like the idea of sharing everything to a stranger, and they say only your parents can ever understand you in this world. What do you think?
  20. Salaamu `alaykum I agree with the Sayyid (may Allah prolong his life), may Allah reward him. May Allah help the Iraqi nation, and all the oppressed in the world, and finally bring relief to mankind with the reappearance of Imam al-Hujjah (ajtfs)! هذا قائدنا! فكيف لا ننتصر؟ دام ظلك سيدنا <3
  21. As salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatahu I just wanted to say something to the Muslim brothers and sisters who are not at the level of "scholars" or "`ulemaa'". When on your journey to gain Islamic knowledge, I highly recommend going at your own pace and not reading complicated ahadith which may be difficult for you and cause you to doubt. It is really foolish to, for example, open up a book like Bihar Al Anwar, or Kitab Al Ghayba, and read it with the intention of wanting to learn about the ghayba of our Imam (aj), as these books are present for the scholars to classify the reliable narrations from the weak ones, and then write shorter books to explain to and teach the layman, (the Muslim who isn't a religious scholar or expert) and not for the layman to open it and believe everything in it as true. There are authentic traditions from our Imams which tell us that their Hadith will be difficult for us to handle, and that only the believer will have the endurance/capacity to take it in, and so why I think it's important for learners to go slow with these things and first read books by modern scholars to learn the fundamentals of topics like Tafseer, Akhlaq, Seerah, Usul, Aqeedah, etc., rather than to jump in to the hadith books and come out doubting your faith over some disturbing hadith you may have came over. As an example, if you want to learn about Imam Al Mahdi (ajtfs), don't open up the big book of Kitab Al Ghayba by al Tusi, as this book is filled with hadiths which you will never understand unless you are well versed in hadith sciences and shi`i hadith history, and because of your lack of understanding, you will fall into doubt.. It is better to read the books like "The Awaited Saviour" by Shaheed Sadr (ra) & Shaheed Mutahhari (ra) ( https://www.al-islam.org/the-awaited-saviour-muhammad-baqir-sadr-murtadha-mutahhari ), which are books where the respected authors (may Allah bless their souls) explain the occultation of our blessed Imam (ajtfs) through authentic narrations which they derived from the above mentioned bigger works, and Quran verses. These are the types of books one should read when he wants to learn about his Imam. Another example, is that it would be utterly stupid to simply open up one of the four main shi`a works and read it for the sake of "knowing the hadiths of the imams". These books are for the scholars to extrapolate information from for their paraphrased works, and not for us less learned, laymen people to use as a direct resource for gaining Islamic knowledge. It's like, as a wise person once said, a newly high school student reading an advanced book on how to build a space ship while he himself hasn't even finished high school! This is why, brothers and sisters, scholars exist! They take these large works and help us know what to take and what not to take. We should not go ahead of our scholars, as they spend their whole lives doing what I have just mentioned for our convenience. It would be very naive of us to ignore their works and dive into the hadith books with no knowledge really. In the end, it is always best to follow what your marja` says in fiqhi (jurisprudence matters) issues, though Note that all I am saying here applies to me first and foremost, and I write it because unfortunately I have seen what happens when laymen go into things too fast.. May Allah increase us all in knowledge and keep us steadfast on the path of truth!
  22. @Lebanese36 Wa `alaykum al salaam sister, it is my pleasure to help you. I have recently read a very short book which is by Shaheed (Martyr) Sayyid Mohammad Baqir Al Sadr (ra), the famous Iraqi martyr and scholar, named "Ghadir" which explains why the shi'a believe in succession to Muhammad. I very highly recommend you read it, it's truly a wonderful and easy to understand book. it is available in English online Here is the link to it. https://www.al-islam.org/printpdf/book/export/html/30065 You are welcome to ask any questions here sister, we will answer to the best of our abilities insha'Allah. Please remember me in your prayers!
  23. Wa `alaykum as-salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatahu 1. I remember a person I met online, we got to know each other more, he is gone now (don't know where he is) and I haven't seen him in over 5 months, may Allah be with him and protect him; we constantly advised each other on religious matters and he made a du'aa for us once that we meet by the Imam (ajtfs), by the side of the ka'aba, when he announces his advent. It was very touching and stayed with me until this day. Is a good motivation 2.erm don't remember. I always be kind to them and obey them (it is wajib) 3.Allah, my Lord. Blessed be He! I speak to Him when I am afflicted, lonely, sad, happy, or in need of help. You won't get a better friend than Him
