  1. Salam Alaykum everyone! From what I have seen throughout my life, when a guest or someone arrives, everyone stands up to greet the person. However, I have read a hadith: Abu-Omamah: “Once the Prophet (P) arrived. We stood up in front of him. He said: “ Don’t stand up like nonArabs (in glory of the person).” What do you guys think? Is this true? If it is, should we not stand up to greet people, regardless of their position? This hadith was mentioned by a reputable Sheikh, so I doubt it is fabricated? Wassalam.
  2. Oh okay makes sense, thank you. Also, I have a question, I took a spoon of black seeds with honey this morning, what else can you tell me about the benefits of black seed?
  3. Hi Brother! Your post is so informational, it was a pleasure to my mind reading it. I appreciate it very much. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) grand you and everyone that has replied Jannah inshallah, you guys are wonderful people. However, I noticed most of your quoted hadiths are from Sahih Muslim and Bukhari sources. Are they unanimously accepted among all scholars of both sects?
  4. That would work, fajr prayer times right now are around 8am where I am located, I usually wake up at 7:30, on a normal day. So right now in the winter season, I pray. But when it comes to the summer times, prayer times go all the way to 3am, 4am, etc. Do I try to stay up till those times, but then I usually work in the summer 9-5 for engineering internships. This leaves me just a few hours of good sleep, cause it takes at least 15minutes to fall asleep, some nights an hour. Which would raise a red flag for the rest of the day, for possible seizures, because I would be tired and fatigued thr
  5. Salam Alaykum everyone, I have unfortunately been recently diagnosed with epilepsy, specifically, Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy. It is a form of a epilepsy which makes me prone to seizures when I have inadequate sleep, and they occur right after waking up. There was a day I woke up to go and pray my fajr prayers, and as expected, during my Salah, I started to have muscle jerks, which are a sign for me that lead into a full seizure. I then went to bed, and when I woke up, there were paramedics beside me and my family looking at me with a concerned look on their face I have never seen be
  6. Salam everyone, I woke up today from a dream where one of my close friends had died from not being able to breath in his sleep. The dream felt so real that I woke up this morning thinking that he actually was dead until 10 minutes later I realized it was a dream. Please, any thoughts on this?
  7. Salam everyone, It's summer time and I go fishing a lot. Simple question, am I allowed to use Haram meat to use for fish bait? Assume the fish swallows the bait. For example, Haram beef heart. Thanks!
  8. Salams everyone, happy Ramadan!!! I would like to your guys' advice on a certain scenario. If there were to be a Shia boy and Sunni girl in love, and they would like to do mutah, even if the girl okay with it, idk maybe the boy has proven mutah to her in Sunni books or something. Is this allowed or no. And is the father's permission required because he is most likely going to say no given the fact he is the type of father who is strict and cultural.
  9. Salams, it seems you misunderstood me brother. I did not keep a grudge for Abu Bakr. The fact is that he used to worship idols and made the succession of the prophet a democracy. My mind does not connect the dots. Since when does a successor of a Prophet, let alone the seal of the prophets be chosen based on democracy where the majority of the people are imperfect and sinners. What makes logical sense is that the succession should be made by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and him alone. The way Sunnis view the succession does not make rational sense to me which is why I would like to hea
  10. Just a youth looking for the truth. I am born Shia but want to know more about Sunni Islam. I have been thinking about it but I never really understood that it has never happened in the history of Islam that a divine figure's successor to be appointed by a human. It was always appointed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). For example, Prophet Yaqub did not appoint Prophet Yusuf AS or anyone for that matter, it was Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). So, I was just wondering why do Sunnis believe that the succession of the Final and the Seal of the Prophets, Muhammas SAWS, was to be appointed by i
  11. Thats something nice to think about, haha, thanks for the heads up!
  12. In the name of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), the most gracious, the merciful! May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) have mercy on you and on all our souls. For we have all sinned. Brother, I would like to tell you that it is a very good sign that you have written here today seeking advice from others and I encourage my respected brother to seek more advice with not only this problem, but other situations you come across in your life and this is encouraged in Islam. There are individuals who live and do things that you may do, but they do not seek help and are ignorant. The fa
  13. Assalam Alaykum br/sis! The title says it all, not much to say. I am in going to the stage of looking for a woman for marriage inshallah and I know that many scholars forbid the wearing of makeup so I still don’t know why many ladies do it... However, I know that I will encounter some girls who will be wearing makeup. The question is, do I completely reject them based on this? I mean it is a sin and a bad example for our future daughters... Seeking advice from both brothers and sisters! All the best, your brother is Islam.
  14. Why do Men Really Workout For If They Are Going to Stay Dressed? Salam brothers and sisters, Now I know what you might think or say, "well obviously to stay healthy!". However there are tons of exercises that are out there which doesnt include being in the gym working out your biceps or whatever it is they want to show off. And plus, most of our health is from our diet as we see from the Qur'an and Ahadith. I brought this up because all my friends have started telling to go to the gym and whatnot, but I'd rather at home exercises and tuning up my diet. Lets all be r
  15. Assalam Alaykum Brothers and Sisters, May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), the Glorified Bless you all and grant you all his beloved mercy and to your deceased inshallah. Me and my mother have decided to start looking for a potential wife. Alhamdulillah, there are plenty which may be suitable for me. However, I am very, well I guess you can say clueless as to how to approach the father (my father unfortunately has passed away). Or should my mom approach the other mom? I have 1 more year of engineering studies and so by the time I marriage does happen I'd be graduated inshallah.
