  1. Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin Wa Ale Muhammad Wa Ajjil Farajahum
  2. Wa alaykum Salam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu How can i keep following with them because i know no one in Qom ?
  3. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem Salam Alaykoum Wa Rahmatullah My friend and I both applied for Hawza in Qom . We sent our applications and we were wondering if there is any hawza student who came from Canada or United States on the forum ? We are curious to know how much time it took to obtain the visa and acceptance from Al Mustafa University . Also since the visa will arrive at pakistan embassy in washington do we have to go over there and take it or can they send it by mail? JazakhAllah Khair
  4. Wallah a lot of people here are talking nonsense especially the ones claiming to be Akhbari . In The Akhbari methodology when something is not clearly mentionned as Haram we practice "Ihtiyat" (Recommended precaution) and we abstain from it contrary to the usulis who try to derive laws by analyzing The chain of narrations , using logic etc . The Imams (As) condemded using qiyas and our own opinion like Abu hanifa did . Ilm al rijal and all these things usulis use to give a grade of truthfulness come from Shafi3 school and the mut3zila . The Imams(As) asked us to submit to the reports and the saying they have been given . If you indeed do not trust our great scholars and the great companions of Ahlul -Bayt (As) who compiled our hadith books how can ypu trust those who compiled the Quran who were among the worst people to walk on earth ? last thing, the Imams (AS) said to accept hadiths even from Waqifis ,Zaydis and ghalis because the hadiths may contain some truth in them if anyone needs further information i will be happy to discuss in pm Wasalam
  5. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem Ya Ali(AS) Madad As a Revert to the school of AhlulBayt(AS) i noticed something interesting about other fellow reverts to Islam . I think it depends of the person but a lot of reverts to Ahlus sunnah or to wahabism tend to start very strongly and practice more than any muslim in the community . She will be the one who will do the nawafil prayers , do recommended fasts , debate and defend his religion with a burning passion . But just like a candle that person burns and extinguish himself very fast and tend to either abandon Islam altogether or become a cultural muslim . Again i know it does not apply to every revert in ahlus sunnah it is just a personnal observation On the other side ,reverts to Ahlul-Bayt(AS) start slowly because some have a hard time to adjust to all rituals and regulations of the religion plus dealing with the cultural side of some Shia communities but SubhanAllah the love of Ahlul-Bayt(AS) in the end, submerges them and they become the biggest lovers of Muhammad(SAWA) wa Ale Muhammad(AS) . It was the case for me ,i directly reverted to Shiism and Wallah al Adheem i tried to pray with Ahlus sunnah and to practice sunnism but the love of Ali(AS) was stronger . There is a good book called The Shia revival by Vali Nasr which says that Sunnism is built on rules and regulations But Shiism is built on love , piety and devotion and then on the rules and i think it pretty much sums up my point . Did other fellow reverts notice this ?
  6. Salam ! thank you very much for your input . How was it visiting those holy places ? i can't even imagine how it must feel
  7. Bismillah Salam Alaykoum Wa Rahmatullah I have the opportunity in April to go for a ziyarah to the graves of Imam Ali (As) and Imam Hussein (As) and also to Kadhmain and Samarra. i Was wondering is Iraq safe generally speaking ? are Najaf and Karbala safe for travelling ? JazakhAllah Wasalam
  8. i am 6'2 . i guess it's the slavic genetics lol
  9. Bismillah Salam Alaykoum Thank you all for your warm welcome !
  10. Salam Alaykoum ! i Am a Romanian Shia but i live in Canada
  11. Salam Alaykoum ! i am orignally from Romania , having also polish background . I reverted back in the holy Month of Muharram of 2015 in the Iranian Mosque of Montreal Elhamdulilah . I was Christian before taking my Shahada but i studied Every religion before making my choice . I onky knew about Ahlus Sunnah at first but when i started learning the early history i couldn't remain sunni(no disrespect intended to Sunnis ) . i feel blessed to have converted because i feel that some Born Shias do not appreciate fully the beauty and Wisdom of Ahlul-Bayt (As) . My parents being from the balkans associated My Islam to the Turks and their invasion and oppression of Romania. But i explained to them that The Iranians Shias were allied with us against Turks at that time . They did not take it too well but elhamdulilah The persona of Imam Ali (As) kept me strong as i recalled all that he had to go through and all those years of loneliness he endured , truly it breaks the heart so this kept me strong Elhamdulilah
