  1. Okay, didn’t know ears weren’t supposed to be directly touched. Glad i got to see this before Fajr in a few hours. Thanks for the reply!
  2. I raise my hands to my ears, am I not supposed to as a woman? Jafari Madhab, by the way.
  3. While the occurrence of the martyrdom of Imam Hussain and his loyal family and companions (عليه السلام) truly breaks the heart, I think what really hurts and burns and stings is the way that he was martyred. Why do you have to sit on his chest, stab him 12 times and then behead him all because he “simply went against an oppressive regime?” It wasn’t just a difference of politics, it was animosity and hatred toward the family of the Holy Prophet (SAWW) that existed even when the Holy Prophet (SAWW) himself was alive. They couldn’t stand to know that a man who advocated for the Truth wouldn’t pl
  4. Does anyone know where I can watch a full English Majlis (don’t know how to explain what I’m asking for correctly) for the 10th? When I go to mosque the sheikh reads out all the events in Arabic for about an hour, but can I find that in English?
  5. Temperature checks and hand sanitizer at the door. Face masks required to be allowed to enter the establishment. They have social distancing markers on the floor. It isn’t perfect, there can definitely be more social distancing happening versus what’s happening now (at least what I see as a lady on the ladies side) but overall people are coming if they feel healthy, and with a mask in case.
  6. Salaam, Dr. Sayed Ammar speaks about it in this Qur’an Tafsir here.
  7. Salaam, I am not a Sunni but 2 years ago I went into a crisis of understanding the Shia faith I was brought up on. When I think about where I was in 2017, I was mourning Ashura confidently, was talking about Imam Ali (عليه السلام) when I could, and just understood that there were 12 imams. About a year later or so I went into a dark phase where I had so many thoughts and questions about imamah, and what the truth was, and why Shia do certain things, I really was so confused and I felt very sad and dark inside. I would pray to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to guide my heart and I told H
  8. I selected at home days ago but started going to Khoei foundation a few days ago. I go every year. It hurt my heart to not be going in the first few days and I’m glad I’m going now.
  9. Salaam, Where can I find any texts to read and learn more about the Battle of Siffin? Thank you.
  10. These comments are helpful as I have just started reading threads on this topic that I didn’t check if they existed...time to read and learn. Sorry if it’s repetitive!
  11. Salaam, I first joined ShiaChat about 2 years ago to genuinely gain knowledge on matters pertaining to Islam. When I posted this it wasn’t really a matter of objection outwardly, rather to just understand the matter generally so then I have an understanding of where our fiqh lands so then I have an idea where to be land/be. Most of my posts on ShiaChat are actually of this matter. I apologize if I seemed to be an outward critique on my post. Maybe I should have worded it better, but I wanted to understand. I actually do thank you for contributing to my thread, it does help!
  12. Asalamu Alaikum, Hi, can anyone parse through this Twitter thread and explain it to me? What are we to make of this? Thanks
  13. Following what if I did ghusl with a hair tie wrapped around my wrist?
  14. But if we’re talking about pizza that is pre-packaged and put into a freezer, then I do not know. I think it falls under the category of doubtful as you to don’t know where it was actually prepared and the environment it was prepared in. Whereas what I spoke about earlier, you have a clearer idea as to what may be happening in the restaurant.
  15. Also, some people might call me extreme but it’s the one way I live more in peace, but I’ve given up all food that is prepared in non-halal restaurants because I do not want to think about cross contamination. That includes pizza for me. I don’t know, though. If pizza is prepared in a place that has toppings like pork or beef or chicken or something like that among all the generally speaking halal ingredients, I don’t want to think about whether or not those topics were cross contaminated by workers gloves’ and such. Many people state that they ask for a “clean cut” on the pizza, but there is
  16. @Hameedeh Sister, I didn’t see the brand name but is there a reason that it was removed? I’m just asking out of general curiosity.
  17. Asalamu Alaikum everyone, Eid al Ghadeer Mubarak to everyone. This occasion hits differently for me this year. I was brought up as a Shi’a but I think I never really fundamentally understood all of the beliefs that I was brought up on. A while back, my heart was shaken, I felt confused, and I wondered why there were so many differences. I really wanted to understand the concept and foundation of Imamah. I knew that Imam Ali’s (عليه السلام) being the successor of the Prophet (PBUHAHF) made logical sense to me. Now, after a year or so of trying to understand the wila
  18. I honestly dislike how complicated people make things. Call to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for help. There should be absolutely no debate there. I grew up as a Shi’a and have spent the last year or so learning the beliefs that I grew up with from scratch again because there were so many things I didn’t understand. It’s actions like these where I wanted to study everything again so I could make an informed decision about which path of Islam made the most logical sense to me. I’m sorry I just get so upset.
  19. I agree with what @Mahdavist said about having a balanced schedule. I would also really emphasize to be consistent in what you do. For a while now I’ve also had a drive to read more Qur’an and read Islamic books and learn more about my religion. I’m also a student so when school is in session I had to complete studies too. What I mean in being consistent is try to set a goal to read/learn that is realistic for you and your time and that you feel is easy for you to keep up, Insha’Allah. For example, I was trying to read a lot of Ayahs in a day, and then after, I would read way less and not feel
  20. So if I made an intention for a qadha is my fast for Ramadhan in order despite fasting on a day like this?
