  1. Asalaam Alaikum- Question~ A Sister friend of mine had this sent to her from another sister, I told her I am not sure of its validity but it is deemed false in a couple of Sunni Fatwa sites. Can anyone think of a source or is this just bogus? e THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER... Read it and tell me if you think the punishment part is right, we all know that not offering our prayers (salat) is HARAM! But little do we know the punishments that we will face... The Prophet peace be upon him narrated. "Convey from me, even if its one verse (Ayah)" Maybe forwarding this me
  2. where did you find this hadith? publication source? Chain of Authenticity? Its in English and its Abu hurairah, the faher of cats.
  3. Upi I really do not think this is a very kind statement. I lived in a dual partnership with the first wife for years with my current husband. She left us to pursue her conversion to Christianity. Many of the women who have posted in this subject have lived in a western society and are not familiar with the more than one wife practice. Many men in a western society cannot afford to support a second or third wife. Evidently you missed that detail. On your behalf, I would change the words dumb or selfish to ignorant. No wise women amongst the shia? I know of many but because of the separa
  4. Interesting. As I said...I will stick to the teachings of the Imams
  5. Abu Huraira: Interesting you should bring him up. Even when I was Sunni i was skeptical of his narrations and now that I have crossed over I wonder even more at his authenticity. He doesn't Jive with me. you need to quote where you obtained these particular ahadith please.
  6. Yes the White House is the swamp. The presidents morals can be ascertained by the company he keeps. Snakes and lizards come to mind...
  7. Dont worry, it is getting to be too much of a locker room....I have to agree we need to back down. we still love you!
  8. I dont see anyone being torn to shreds. I think separating these questions by gender would be a wise move if it can be done. The sisters see the world from a different point of view than a man would. The brother as I mentioned has his rights, and maybe this question is better asked somewhere in a male only forum. I wish him the best in his endeavors. The ladies have their rights too, might be a good time to close this thread and lower our gazes. And men are responsible for the maintenance and well being in general of their wives in Islam, its in the quran and to each his or her own. Not for us
  9. By that I was referring whether he is sunni or shia, beyond that not my call, Many general Muslims from the world relate to Maliki, Shafii, Hanafi, Hanabali and JAFARI as madhabs not sects: to them the Ummah is one. Not questioning his religion in any context. Let me assure you since I have not been always Shia and some others think in different contexts. Allah alone may judge. Also his madhab would indicate if he is from Lahore whether or not he lived in the Pakistan or Indian Lahore. most hanifis moved north.
  10. No not at all. I was Sunni, a widow with five young children and my shia husband married me without hesitation. He paid for my nursing education and my bachelors degree as my mahr. He raised and cared for my 5 eldest kids and insisted they be raised Sunni till they could make the decision. Never had a sunni man even inquire beyond knowing i had five fatherless children. My kids call him pops but know the legacy of their birth father. I finally became shia last year. Actions speak louder than words. If a man treats his mother with respect and treats you nicely then he is the man, whether rich o
  11. Good question. Im not even sure he is the same madhab.
  12. If it is Allahs will----I wouldn't marry one, but then i have the status of Khala----I may counsel whom I choose. And since my poor husband now has Alzheimers and is sleeping in the next room and sometimes forgets who I am, I will be trolling....
  13. I agree with you sister. I have many friends here in USA with husbands from the same city, and some of them are exes also. I warn American converts against some of these men. Sad affair. The poorer man is a wiser choice.
  14. I am so sorry for your loss May Allah the Compassionate and Merciful, reduce your pain and calm your heart. From Allah is our origin and to Him our return, Sister Hameedeh is correct, and I would suggest extra prayer, your Creator is your greatest comforter. I have used many of the supplications at this link with great success http://www.duas.org/worries.htm Depending whether or not she is Muslim, you can start reading quaran on her behalf. Also duas.org have many duas for the marhumas. you may want to consider this if she was muslimah. Chocolate is a great stress reducer as
  15. As a psychiatric nurse for many years, I find your attitude leaning towards arrogant and narrow-minded. I was the second wife of my present husband. He was able to meet the needs of his two wives. i would NOT allow him to spend more time than allowable with me- I was the younger wife, He had to divorce my sister wife. the mother of his four daughters, when she converted to Christian Mormonism. I evidently landed a better quality man. I was a widow at 28 years of age with 5 small children to feed: and he was man enough to take us on. I have gained weight over the years due to the many children
  16. Please fee free to communicate to the moderators the feelings you are discussing. simply hit the report button and let them know. Upper right hand of the box. I did. saves a lot of searching for the moderators.
  17. Asalaan Alaikum: I need your sources to verify this. I also practice Duas that are free of certain utterances. I. You need to confirm that your Sunni Ahadith sources has not been altered since the Al saud family has taken control of the helm of Alhul Sunnah. My grandparents (I am 59 years old) were subjects of the Ottoman empire and My Dayi (mothers brother) who still resides in Anatolia possesses Ottoman of books of Ahadith=and what is printed now by modern sunnis is post Caliphate and age of the Wahabis reads differently than the original Ahadith of the ottoman empire. I also suggest you l
  18. Brother, you are all over the page. You need to address one topic at a time. If you joined the Ahlul Sunnah, that is your choice, As a woman who was born-and raised into the madhab of Abu Hanifa and found the truth lies in the madhab of Syed Jafar, the teacher of the Sunni scholars. I found Fitna in the family of alhul Sunnah and peace in the people of the Ahlul bayt.,
  19. Yes slick Donnie, A "polished" man who seems vindictive enough to go to the state of 2 senators and trash one that is basically dying. I am a resident of AZ and live in a city south of phoenix. AZ is an independent majority state. Everything with him is staged, Perhaps that is why he is so successful in the field of politics.I have washed my hands of politics: It is the world of men and it is fleeting. A t my age it is more important to focus on the Akhira. Amazing fact is that a Sunni Attorney out of Phoenix is running for Senator against Flake. Her name is Deedra Aboud.
  20. any muslimah would be a better situation. Mu duas for you sister
  21. Asalaamu alaikum I received a wonderful email from a Sunni sister the other day that touched my heart. I simply wanted to share it with you. If this is innapropriate moderators, please remove. I cannot account for the authenticity of the ahadith quoted: and this is Sunni origin " Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.” [Muslim]If your finger, foot, or any part of your bod
  22. Which of you, then, will help me in this, and be my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you?’ All remained silent, except for the youthful ʿAlī who spoke up: ‘O Prophet of God, I will be thy helper in this.’ The Prophet then placed his hand on ʿAlī’s neck and said, ‘This is my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you. Hearken unto him and obey him.’ (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, tr. A Guilaume, The Life of Muhammad, 118)
  23. I was a former Sunni and did Taraweeh when I was Sunni. Since I have been married to a Shia for 25+ years I have finally declared myself to be of the Shia. Taraweeh is a prayer started by the early rulers of the Sunni Figh and is not a practice that I have ever encountered in any hussainiya or gathering of shia.
  24. Are you speaking of Ayatollah Muhammad Momen of Qoms Iran? Here is a link to some of his information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammad_Momen
  25. Salaams-Not being sarcastic, as soon as I find the reference for my statement, I will leave it for you
