  1. Whether it's harsh or not, life is a blessing from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And we can't deny that. And earlier in your threads I had told you to seek more rewards from Allah for thehereafter, because after you die (like how you feel envy, if any, towards others who have it better) there won't be anything you'd be able to do for more benefits and rewards. Quran - 2:195 Yusuf Ali: "And spend of your substance in the cause of Allah, and make not your own hands contribute to (your) destruction; but do good; for Allah loveth those who do good." Shakir: "And spend in the way of Allah and cast not yourselves to perdition with your own hands, and do good (to others); surely Allah loves the doers of good." Allah is the lover of good doers than those who ruin their ownself.
  2. I have heard that Imams had married outside the syed lineage. That, in fact, is a proof that your father can't force you to marry only syeds. Sorry, I don't have any references right now. Maybe someone else can provide you with them (Insha'Allah). Best of Luck! Zavon.
  3. It is perfectly okay to marry such man (a convert) for a (Muslim) woman.

    (rewind a little) Talks about Hameedah bint Muslim.

  5. No doubt, both has their own significance so we can't really say which one is better. But I'd personally favor my daughter to get into a definite and permanent relation and live a happy and content life there on. But there is nothing wrong in doing a temporary marriage if both the parties agree. After the period of temporary marriage has ended, there is no compulsion for any of the partner to re-marry (whether permanent or temporary) as far as I know. Maybe someone else can shed light on this in a better way. Zavon.

    ♥ Marriage ♥

    Insha'Allah, Allah makes it easier for everyone...
  7. Assalamu'Alaikum. Shias are the followers of Prophet al-Muhammad and his Ahlelbayt (progeny). Prophet Muhammad's (saw) progeny includes Imam Ali (a), Hazrat Fatimah (s.a), Imam Hassan and Hussain (a) and the rest. I don't know who told you shias are back-stabbers, so and so... That generalization isn't true.
  8. Take your parents with you (even if it requires a little force/push) and strike up a conversation with the guy's family. If they don't agree upon a marriage any time soon... well then it's up to you to make the final decision; whether to stay in this situation or to terminate the engagement. Jazak Allahu Khayr. Zavon.
  9. This. And I will add: What do the people around you need? What are their expectations of you?
  10. Assalamu'Alaikum. Can someone suggest me books on "The accounts of Karbala" and "The aftermath of Karbala" (what the women and children of al-Hussayn a.s. went through). I need to know of books that are the most detailed, and have more reliable narrations. (And are available in pdf). I'd be grateful if you can tell me books from Shia and Sunni historians/scholars, in both Urdu and English. Jazak Allahu Khayr. Zavon.
  11. Usually how many hours you sleep in normal days? (Including your nap-time if any).
  12. Assalamu'Alaikum. Out here, I have heard in lectures that Imam al-Hussain (a.s.) was martyred in prostration... Is it the case? Because in Ammar Nakshawani's lecture on "maqtal" I have never heard such a thing. So I am a bit confused... Please provide me with an explanation; better yet a historical reference. Jazak Allahu Khayr.
  13. First of all you need a female friend who you trust a lot (preferably) an adult or a relative, whom you can talk to freely. You can talk to her about your problems, it will help you deal with your worst depressing moments. Secondly, could it be that he wanted the nationality of your country so he married you? Or there could be any other underlying reason behind his actions, not to raise doubts but it's plainly obvious that he wasn't being fully honest with you from the get go. (And it also could be that his 1st wife also was involved in this whole deception scenario). And lastly, my advice, gather some courage and divorce him before things go even more so awful. You may differ in opinion, but I think that's what is best for you!
  14. I am still waiting to know when you're selling alcohol. It's best if you avoid it. Zavon.

    . . . . because it's uncomfortable?
  16. I saw a black cat, my supposed friend died. I saw a bird hit a pole, the pole fell on the house. Why is it that I am the only one able to see the wrongs, mistakes, distressful things happening in life? That's because you're looking at them in a wrong way. I see a critical need for you to examine what are the essential things you need to do in life instead of looking at the essentials you want from others. Things get screwed up when we go the other way around. Chin up, and bear with your responsibilities. Life is a temporary stay and a means to gain as much rewards as you can in the hereafter. Help out your family (if they're sick), stick with the belief that you'll gain reward for whatever you're doing for the people around you, whether they pay you back with good or bad. Jazak Allahu Khayr. Zavon.
  17. Just a suggestion: You can maybe have the name changed to Fatimah or Zahraa. No one will have any problem with it Insha'Allah. Wish you the best.
  18. Assalamu'Alaikum. Does any of you know the names of children of Muslim ibn Aqeel? Especially the daughters? How many did he have? 1 or more? Is there a daughter of Muslim ibn Aqeel named Hameedah? Because exactly at 1:00:00 (1 hr) Ammar Nakshawani mentions Hameedah bint Muslim. Do we have any narrations that talk about this daughter Hameedah of his? Or historical references that talk about her? Somewhere in SC forums I also heard that this daughter who was with Hussayn a.s. was Aatikah?
  19. CORRECTION: 1) You can fast on 8th, 9th or any other date of Muharram. However you can't fast on 10th of Muharram. 2) Some say faa'qa ends at Dhuhr, but I've heard that it ends at Asr. :unsure:
  20. From elbow to fingertips, that'll include both sides, I mean the whole arm between your elbow to the fingertips!
  21. It's called "faa'qa" in the term I know it. Means that you end/break your fast of 9th and 10th Muharram at the time of Asr. And from what I have heard you can't fast on 9th and 10th Muharram (it's either that or only 10th Muharram), it's considered makrooh or non-recommended. I could be wrong...
  22. 1. I want to know from as many as possible as to what your "aspiration/goal(s)" is/are. None really. But when I'm tired of life I try to look at the lives of the 14 infallible and their companions. 2. How do you see this world and how will you use it to reach your goal(s)? I see this world as something temporary. I want to be someone who does something, not just eat, sleep & die. 3. What keeps you closer to Allah everyday? My prayers. Also dhikr of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And listening to lectures on the progeny of al-Muhammad (saw). 4. What is our responsibility in the Ghaybah of Imam (ajfs) and how will you play your role? I don't know. 5. How do you repel and destroy the Jahl(ignorance) inside yourself? I try to understand that I shouldn't be like Satan. Who denied to prostrate to Allah's creation. Who was the very first racist, and held feelings of pride, and envy and jealousy towards Adam (a). 6. How do you wish to die? And what are you doing about it (if its not an ordinary death that you want)? I wish to die only after Allah forgives me for all the wrongs that I ever did. For it, I am at the very least trying to control myself from committing certain wrongs, and trying to be a better Muslim, a better Shia. 7. Do you wish to contribute to Iranian(Islamic) Revolution. If yes then How, If no then Why? I don't know. 8. How do you see money and life based on good economic value? Dunno.
