  1. True! It could be! But honesty it’s very hard to fake being a Syed with a shajrah. It has named people for generations. People can just pick up the phone and ring around around and ask others if they remember x,y,z being a Syed. It’s only now that’s it’s ‘fashionable’ to be a Syed and so dozens of people pretend. We know lots of people who were never a Syed in Pakistan or India, and yet have addded the title in the UK. Real Syeds know other real Syeds for generations through family connections.
  2. @Qa'im I’ve got both your books brother. I purchased the first one on kindle and the second one I’ve got on kindle unlimited in the UK. I’m making my way through the first one. MashAllah very good so far.
  3. @Guest GodHelpme Walaikum Salam. Sorry I can’t be of any help. Just wanted to say you’re not alone in thinking like this. I’ve been there (might still be there can’t comment). I could tangibly feel the frustration, pain and anguish behind your words. May Allah give you strength. Praying for you.
  4. I’m sure this has been discussed before, and if so I’d appreciate the link. Thanks. How is it possible for one to communicate with Imam Mehdi (عليه السلام)? What is the best way to pray for his intercession? Many thanks.
  5. @Ather Abbas Salam brother. I am a Syeda myself. My personal belief is that respect needs to be earned based on conduct, values, manners and etiquette. In my personal experience many Syeds are the biggest hypocrites because they expect to be respected just because they’ve been born into a particular family by pure chance. To reiterate; this is simply based on my experience and is my personal opinion.
  6. Thank you for looking into it. Much appreciated! Could anyone else offer any insight?
  7. Do we believe in the concept of ‘twin flames’ in Shia Islam? Are there any references anyone could give me? There is plenty of information on the internet about ‘twin flames’ so I won’t define the term. Many thanks.
  8. Salam. Thank you sooooooo much for your response. Could you please very kindly DM the contacts of a reliable Sheikh please. My friend is based in Warwickshire (UK) but would happily travel.
  9. Salam all, so a friend of mine has been going through the worst decade of her life. Absolutely nothing goes right for her. Everything normal bizarrely turns into a nightmare. She was a devout Shia but she’s got to the point where she’s stopped praying (she insists that no matter how much she wants to she can’t bring herself to pray). Most duas for fulfilment of Hajjat and removal of black magic need to be recited AFTER namaz - hence the quandary! If she can’t bring herself to even read namaz how can she read those other supplications? Health wise she is all over the place. No energy,
  10. A miserable one. But the man is a control freak and will not let her go at any expense. He’d rather be in a sexless marriage than let her live her life. The woman has no support from her family with this regards - naturally so because they are the ones who forced her into consenting against her will. They have a child together (the marriage was consummated) and this is their only binding factor.
  11. In this situation the marriage was forced upon the woman; the woman despises her husband and is denying any sexual connection. The husband respects this decision but will not divorce her either.
  12. Someone told me that in Shia Islam if you are not intimate in your marriage for more than two years then it is automatically void. What if a couple haven’t been intimate for a decade and are in a loveless cold marriage? Could the respective partners automatically remarry without the need for an official Islamic divorce?
