  1. Requesting Du'a... Please spare some time to include my family and I in your Du'as... JazakAllah...

  2. ... Adding bacon to cookies? That is certainly a strange way to eat a cookie
  3. Bismillah. Salaam. Requesting prayers. JazakAllah. Wasalaam.

  4. My eyes tear up at this kalaam... O Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)... Please reveal Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) soon and make us amongst his supporters...
  5. Bismillah Salaam Firstly, I hope you find patience in your pain, and so does everyone in pain. Secondly, the answer is most certainly that do not look into such matters for revenge, for if this were the way, us Shi'a would resort to black magic to personally bring pain to those who are enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and his progeny (عليه السلام). Verily, the greatest injustice that can be done is towards them, then greater towards the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), and the greatest towards Allah Himself. So if it is prohibited for us to look to such methods in even these cases, then injustices towards our own beings are most certainly no exception. The concept of justice against those who have wronged, oppressed, committed transgressions, etc inherently relies on an authority that is beyond the human understanding of perfect, and thus Allah Himself. Most people are well aware of this. But, with this, an intrinsic property of justice then is that at times, matters must be left to Allah so that he may deal with such people with perfect utmost justice. Surely, this does not mean one should say, refuse to defend themselves when attacked, rather one should defend themselves and do their part in justice generally in any situation, but in some cases, the part one must do is having patience and faith in Allah and His Divine Justice that yields reward to the good, such as those patient and oppressed, in the Hereafter with certainty and even the current world if that is best, and yields due retribution to the bad, such as those who oppress, in the Hereafter with certainty and even the current world if that is best. Not only are you jeopardising the chances of perfect justice being in your favour and against your oppressor by trying to do what is more than your part (for example by killing someone who tried to fist-fight you only), but in your case specifically, you are also doing so severely by resorting to such highly prohibited measures. I recall a saying from one of the Imams, I believe it was Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (عليه السلام), but I am not sure.... (If someone knows what saying I refer to in the following, please do let me know of the exact words of the saying and who it is attributed to, along with a reference preferably) I paraphrase it, but the gist of it is that if a trial beings you closer to Allah then it is a test and if a trial brings you further from Allah then it is a curse. My message at the end is that, please, do not make such a grave mistake. Wasalam
  6. Bismillah, Salaam.

    I hope you have a good day, insha'Allah :)

  7. Bismillah, Salaam...

  8. One of the traits of Imam Ameer al-Mu'mineen!
  9. Dates are very common in most Muslim households, and especially in the month of Ramadhan. I recently began thinking about the different types of dates there are, and there are so many types that it really makes you want to try all of them! I am no expert in dates, but my personal favourite is definitely the 'Ajwah (عجوۃ) kind. I really like how it's sweet but not too sweet, isn't too soft, and it's skin doesn't just easily fall off the flesh of the fruit. I have mostly had Pakistani varieties of dates, and honestly, 'Ajwah is just the best. Alhumdulillah. So what about the people of ShiaChat, what do you all think? What's your favourite variety of date fruit? JazakAllah
  10. Bismillah, salaam. I can't seem to access the .pdfs through the button on their website. Maybe it's because it's blocked in my region? I am not sure...
  11. Bismillah, Salaam.

    Requesting prayers for removal of worries, resolution of issues, and granting of supplications from mu'mineen. May Allah reward you greatly for your prayers...

    Wasalaam.

  13. حوائج آؤ ذرا لہر و ہوا دیکھنے چلیں ساحل سے ذرا کچھ لینے چلیں جیب میں اشیاء نہ کہیں ملیں بس آس کا علم ساتھ لے کے چلیں آؤ اس راہ پر قدم تو رکھیں باب الحوئج سے ذرا ملنے چلیں ہاتھوں سے تڑپتی آنکھوں کو ملیں کچھ اشک ذرا کوثر تک چھوڑنے چلیں دل کھول کر اس کریم کو مخاتب کریں واسطہِ عظیم پھر دیتے چلیں بےبازو سے ہاتھ جوڑ کے کہیں اس چھپے کو سامنے رکھ کے چلیں سانسِ سکون لے کر اب آگے بڑھیں آؤ منتظر اب سفر طے کر کے چلیں
  14. I tend to keep strictly personal opinions as far as I can for matters like these, but forgive me if they seem to leak through in my text. It is important that one should not place a heavy amount of importance on how other people think of oneself. However, I think there is still some importance to it. Take the example of Tatbir. While there are numerous reasons cited by scholars who insist it is prohibited or are against it, one of them is that it damages the reputation of Islam. If forgiving someone for such an act brings shame to the faith, then that is one reason to not forgive them. If it paints Islam in a better light, then that is one reason to forgive them. As for how the victim (the one whose spouse committed adultery) feels. Not everyone is able to let things slide, especially not things this big. It is important to know that part of faith is caring for yourself. Not all situations call for immense sacrifices from us humans. In this case, this harm to oneself due to the psychological impact and subsequently forgiving them can be considered, by extension and argument, self inflicted, caused likely due to the lack of self respect or similar. In this case, one could argue that it is absolutely prohibited for one to forgive this person then, for you are harming your mental health which is part of your being after all. So, if you struggle with this misdeed acted out by the spouse, then this is a reason not to forgive them. If you can accept it and are calm with it, then it is not a reason for or against forgiving them. On the matter of the Hudood. There is a very clear demarcation of boundaries which have severe consequences if transgressed. This does indicate Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)'s immense dislike and anger towards these acts. By argument, this makes it a reason not to forgive them. In case the spouse feels remorse and makes steps towards making amendments and reformations. Kindness is a valued trait in Islam. While the matter of being forgiven by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is between the committer of the sin and Him, the matter of forgiveness from your side is your choice. If it is evident that the spouse truly is apologetic and is actively taking or trying to take steps to ensure that this never repeats and its effects are minimal, then perhaps it can be argued that it is the kinder act to forgive. This makes it a reason to forgive them. If they are not one to make amends and set things right, then it is a reason not to forgive them. The say of family is important. If the children know of the situation, given that they have the ability to think clearly then their opinion has weight. If your parents and siblings have an opinion, it also matters. Their feelings and the topic of kindness as such applies to them as well. The whole matter is very nuanced as is visible. Weighing all these things appropriately, through examining how it affects oneself and those associated with oneself such as family, a decision should be made. I should add that these are likely not all the points requiring thinking, so do consider other factors as well. Now from a personal standpoint. From personal observations and experiences, I find the act to be a bitter action to be committed against the spouse, the Ruh of the committer, and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I personally hold immense hatred for these things. However, if I was placed in this situation and saw that the person was doing all they can to make amends, I would be inclined to give them a chance. I would also in this situation attempt to reason with the family about this, so they consider all these things when forming their opinion. As for my feelings, betrayal, sadness, anger, frustration, would most certainly be present, and so would the psychological impact of this. I personally would struggle to let it slide. But, if I do not divorce my wife and her attempts of making amends are showing good signs, then I would slowly begin to let it all slide, but I do reckon that it would still bitterly haunt me. Such would motivate me to look to Allah for peace, looking towards the Akhirah for it, leaving the rest up to Him. Now try and apply this to your situation. May Allah grant you peace and happiness, both in this world and the next.
