  1. Thank you for sharing. I also found for me that also understanding for example the Surahs that I am reciting while praying also helps. When we go beyond simply reciting verses from the Holy Qur’an to understanding them, it has a further impact on us. Simultaneously, I think further thinking profoundly Tawheed also helps me. In addition, increasing supplications to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), reading more Qur’an and understanding Qur’an, and learning more through lectures and readings also helped me.
  2. Thank you brother @Ashvazdanghe for sharing this knowledge and thank you @Algerian Shia for asking this question, for I have learned some things.
  3. Yes, we won’t look. But the environment that we place ourselves does have some importance. There are so many nice places that we can spend time with our family and have a nice time without the environment that a beach would have on a scorching day in the summer.
  4. @notme Whether one agrees with her ideologies or not, in the evening yesterday Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez started a líve vídeo on Instagram also explaining that the House has passed 6 different bills into the senate for a government re-opening, but the senate isn’t doing anything. Apparently, Mitch McConnell does not want to reopen the government, and some headlines and news outlets states it’s because his seat is up for re-election in 2020 and he doesn’t want to lose it. I’m extremely sad for the thousands for Americans that have lost a paycheck. And for the others that are wondering whether or not they should look for other jobs, as well as those with bills to pay. I really don’t want a wall, but I’m scared if this continues for a while, and many people continue to be worried about their paychecks.
  5. Asalamu Alaikum, What do you guys think about the government shutdown? What’s your stance on these current issues between Some Democrats and Republicans? What about the furloughed federal workers?
  6. When washing the arms, only one pour of the water is sufficient for each arm? (I’m not asking about the actual washing from the hands to the fingertips) rather how many times we can pour water to wash our hands. I thought once was fine, and then the second is mustahab, and the third would make whudu void. Unless I’m wrong. (I also do taqleed of Khamenei and not Sistani, I was just reading your blog).
  7. @Ejaz Salaam, that’s fine! I’ve listened to the second to last one, and Surah YaSin of the last I think. Thanks for sending!
  8. I’m reading this book called Ghadir right now and it says before the book starts that: “This text provides a brief study on the origins of Shi’ism and how the ideology of Wilayah came to existence, and the theological-juridical implications for the Islamic political thought in relation to the Wilayah of Imam Ali (عليه السلام).” Heres the link: https://www.al-Islam.org/printpdf/book/export/html/3006 Also, check out this thread: And I made this thread about me wanting to understand my faith more, and people gave me some advice. You can check it if you’d like:
  9. I don’t know. For me, I grew up when Apple’s early iPods were being used. I did not get a phone until I was 16 years old and it was my sister’s old blackberry from 2009 that I just sent text messages with and sent calls. And while I agree I didn’t really mind—I mean I saw my friends every day in school and was very social, I am agreeing with the points in this post about the effect it does have on some students to not have a phone that can do much more than just send a text and call. While I agree that a child does not need a phone, and we do not have to force our kids to fit in the crowd, we can’t deny that there are still some kids who will still feel left out among peers. We can’t deny that this social pressure does affect emotional health Thus, I think that as soon as a kid reaches at least high school—which is 14 years old, with parental security is fine. The kid should have the freedom to have the phone if he/she wants one, but should also understand that they can’t do whatever they want on it. That the parents will still supervise some of what they’re doing, and the kids should be told that they must be careful online. (Parents should check what websites they’re on).
  10. I completed an eye surgery recently, and Alhamdulillah I’m recovering well. I feel so blessed that it went well. Now I just have to wait about a month to see if the surgery was throughly successful.
  11. Salaam, @aaljibar started this thread about how to do the Qadha’ prayers while also still fulfilling your daily prayers.
  12. Salaam everyone, Does anyone want to share any of their favorite Holy Qur’an recitations that are available on YouTube? Please post them below if applicable. Thank you!
  13. I gave up bad TVs and movies about a year ago, and Alhamdulillah it has been amazing. You realize how much you don’t need stuff like that in your life; you realize how much your nafs desires things that later you are better off without.
  14. @Gabenowa This is important. Thank you for sharing.
  15. Sister, you gave such great advice, but this part was the best part for me. I pray that InshaAllah I always remember this and try to remain patient.
  16. For anyone who’s interested, brother @Gabenowa shared these additional PDFs with me and I will take a look. For anyone else reading this, you should take a look too. The last one on anger was beneficial and informational to me.
  17. @Ralvi The comment was ether deleted or removed by a moderator. It’s not there anymore, but I’m glad it’s gone.
  18. Again, my comment was more about why anyone should be told to educate themselves and shut up, if we just responded with a comment like that of @Ashvazdanghe‘s regarding the matter (I actually learned something from his comment) straight away, some of this could’ve possibly been avoided. I personally do come to shiachat sometimes to be educated on certain matters, and have learned a lot on this website. If someone should be educated on a certain matter, we can possibly help them by further explaining the topic at hand.
  19. Thank you brother. I’ve actually learned from this clarification.
  20. Salam, personally I am a bit surprised. I come here on this site to learn from brothers and sisters about certain topics, and when I see a reply @Mohammed-Mehdi gives to @BowTie about having to educate himself or shut up, I wonder if some of my own questions might be given a skeptical response, or if my own questions will be seen as wrong or silly, if I am only trying to learn. Personally, I do not think brother @BowTie is trying to stir further conflict, he is only trying to understand the concept of the names of the Ahlul-Bayt on turbahs. I wish that we could help each other understand a topic without making the person feel silly or wrong for asking a question. Asking is how we can learn. I’m not saying that I see a full correlation with brother @BowTie’s question, but I’m saying that we should try to help someone who has a question.
  21. I saw a comment on an earlier forum about a camel story and realized I never heard of it. Now I have! Thanks for sharing.
  22. Asalamu Alaikum, All of us need to remember Allah’s (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) mercy. For He is the Most Merciful. Sometimes we commit numerous mistakes, but we should never forget how Merciful The Most Merciful is. I’m creating this thread so ShiaChat members can comment any Qur’an verses or Hadith that discuss Allah’s سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى mercy as yet another reminder for our ummah how Merciful our Lord is.
