  1. اللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ Allahumma salli `ala muhammadin wa Ali muhammadin O Allah: (please do) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
  2. No nobody reached out yet, and I don't know how to send private messages since I am new to this forum haha. BUT..... Alhamdulillah I met a wonderful believing woman just in the last 2 weeks. I already asked her for marriage and she spoke to her mother so far (who was okay with the idea), and she will speak to her father when we make the final decision to get engaged (and ask for his permission). I seriously can't believe this yet myself... But Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) surely is the answerer of prayers! "And your Lord says: Call upon Me, I will answer you; surely those who are too proud for My worship shall soon enter hell abased." (al-Mu’min, 40/60)
  3. Mashallah these are great tips and I will definitely keep them in mind when the time comes to make a decision This is also a great suggestion brother, but I am wondering whether the Shia/Sunni issue is important? If I meet a Sunni woman at these events and she seems pious should I go ahead and seek marriage with her? It is saddening to think that I would have to spend the rest of my life with someone that denies the oppression the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) faced, and they praise the caliphs and so forth. And even more, there might be issues about what madhab the children would learn and practice. And there could be issues with her Sunni family... I don't know, maybe I am overthinking it. But I feel like being patient and waiting would be best, and perhaps God will make it easy for me in the future to marry a Shia woman
  4. Haha yes, but I bet the wahabbis will also gravitate to it. They always want to make sure the sunnah of their precious caliphs are followed there. But good idea overall, I might try it...
  5. Where I live there is not a Shia commumity unfourtunately, only a Sunni mosque... As a revert, it sucks knowing only Sunni people and having no Shi'ii friends. Though I bet there are at least several hundered Shia where I live, but they are not organized in any way so you can't tell them apart. I would suggest that our community should find ways to get together and pray together even in cities were there isnt an official centre.
  6. From the teachings of Imams (عليه السلام), the virtues of marriage are clear. Examples: The Prophet (S) said, “One who marries, has already guarded half of his religion, therefore he should fear Allah for the other half.” And in the Qur'an: “And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.” (Surah an-Nur, 24:32) I am a 21 year old male who goes to university in Canada, and I will be graduating in 2 years Inshallah. I am also a convert to Islam, and I've accepted the school of the Ahlul Bayt shortly after my conversion. Because the scholars recommend marriage early, I am looking for a way to get married to a religious and faithful wife. Looks and ethnicity are not important for me, it is enough if she is strongly committed to God and the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt. Can some of the brothers here give me some advice? Should I wait more because I am new to Islam? How can I find the right person when I don't have a Shi'a family or any Shi'a friends? There are many Sunni women at the University, but I would much rather it be someone who is a follower of the Ahlul Bayt. There is no Shi'a mosque near me, but when I graduate I plan to immediately move to a place where there is a Shi'a community (probably Toronto). Thanks
