  1. Alhamdulilah, It is reported from Imam Ja‘far as-Sadiq that Allah revealed to Dawud to give good tidings of Paradise to Khalaawaa daughter of Aus and also to inform her that in Paradise she will remain near him. Dawud went to her house and knocked the door. The woman came out and asked whether there was any Divine order about her. Hearing the reply in the affirmative, she asked what it was. Dawud narrated to her the Command of Allah. She asked was there any other woman by the same name as of her? Dawud said, “No. Allah has given good tidings especially to you.” She said, “O messenger of Allah! I cannot ascribe untruth to you. But, by Allah, I do not find any such distinction in me which can be the cause of this great honor.” Dawud said, “Let me know about your personal matters.” She said, “It is only that during every trouble, pain, starvation or any other adversity I did nothing but have been patient and complained to none but only One Allah and asked Him alone to remove my hardship. I remained happy at His will and have been only thankful to Him.” Dawud said, “You got this great status only due to this virtue of yours. This is the very way and the religion which Allah has selected for His good servants.”
  2. Alhamdulilah, So was Ghina permissible at one point? I ask this because Da’ood (عليه السلام). Was known for having a beautiful voice. It is said that he will sing for the believers in Jannah. I believe he also played an instrument of some sort. And it is written in the 17th chapter: O Dawud! Listen to what I say and order Sulayman to make people understand that I will give the Earth as inheritance to Muhammad and his Ummah (followers) and they will be different from what you are. Their prayer will not be musical instruments and songs. So recite my Holiness more and more and weep profusely when you raise the song in My sanctification.
  3. Alhamdulilah, Well I would suggest telling her how much you appreciate the help she has given you over the years. She has been a blessing by the grace of Allah because surely your path could have been even more difficult without her. Speak kindly to her and speak from the heart. This will be more blessings for you. As Muslims we must remember not to concentrate on what we don’t have and and remember to be more appreciative about the blessings we do have. As to you not wanting a Houri? *Shrugs* There will be many people in Jahannam wishing they had bounties given to them by Allah. Why would you want to decline bounties and blessings given to you by Allah rather it be in this world or the hereafter? Also spouses of Jannah are not just houri. There will be many women and men who will enter Jannah without a spouse and those who are single will be wedded to each other if they desire. The believing women entering Jannah will be even more beautiful than even the houri.
  4. Alhamdulilah, My father was a professional boxer. He fought 100 amateur fights and 20 pro fights and is a golden Glover and fought in the jr Olympics. His pro career was short due to out of ring and in life issues. He suffered torn retina from his boxing career. He actually fought Floyd Mayweather Sr and beat him easily. Before suffering retina problem his camp was in negotiations to fight sugar Ray. But this champion boxing lifestyle wasn’t in the plan that Allah had for him and probably for good reasons. Fighting for glory and money is not better than fighting strictly for the pleasure of Allah. My dad and his trainers thought I would be a great boxer due to my at the time coordination, height, and arm span. I love all martial arts but thought fighting for sport would be too much so I didn’t follow in my Fathers footsteps in boxing professionally. Learning how to defend oneself and fight is a great thing in Islam. Doing it for the pleasure of Allah and not the self ego is much better. There is a huge ego battle within oneself in being a professional champion fighter for sport. This type of ego could be in conflict with being humble as a servant of Allah.
  5. Alhamdulilah, May Allah help you in your case and may Allah grant you ease by fulfilling your needs. I would say contact the sheikhs in Canada. Insha’Allah, perhaps it would be worth a shot to utilize every source that you have in order to obtain what you are seeking. Make sure to let your Mom know she is not ruining your life. She is still there with you helping as much as she can. Everything is by the will of Allah. If marriage is in the grand plan it will happen and if not Allah will marry you in Jannah to the best of spouses. May Allah grant all of us patience to endure in our personal struggles. One thing about match making sites is that people are extremely selective and miss out on potential mates due to their tedious credential screening. Might help to understand how you are going about things in this process.
  6. Alhamdulilah, Is there sin only in the west? There is much sin all over the world including the Middle East where you live. I can report from here where I live in the west that there are Muslims and believers who are modest and behave properly. Yes the OP’s question comes across a certain way but we shouldn’t return it with generalizations and stereotyping. We all have to look at ourselves before we judge others. We don’t know what there may be about a person that Allah loves despite what people may think about them. May Allah have mercy on the believing men and believing women.
  7. Alhamdulilah, I feel like I should interject. Brother, I don’t mean to sound rude so forgive me if my opinion sounds bias or self righteous in any way. Perhaps we all should be more patient and not assume negative intentions of our brothers and sisters who we may think are not up to standards during a discussion. We are all sitting behind key boards writing our opinions about matters that we ourselves are still trying to understand. Everyone should be free to express, however wrong we may think they may be. We will not all share the same perception and depth of subject matters at times. That in itself plus trying to initiate dialogue while gathering and processing other views and learning where your view stands amongst others who are seeking to understand on some type of level will all be confusing and hard at times to understand true intent. Even though we all might disagree at times doesn’t necessarily means ones intentions are deceiving or suspicious. If your radar is not perfect then that means there is room for error or misjudgment and only Allah is perfect enough to know who has pure intention. So we should have a more lenient response with everyone as to their Processing methods and intentions. The real substance in the other thread and most threads is the fact that we as Muslims are learning and building and gaining understanding with each other. So each time we leave, we should leave this site with a little more insight or perception than the last time we came. But also before we leave we should make sure to shake hands and embrace so that we don’t leave with negative feelings towards each other. I myself may be just a keyboard warrior from the west but this is one of my favorite sites to come and chat with other believers. And I respect you all and love you all as brothers and sisters no matter what we may disagree about. So may Allah have mercy on all the believing men and believing women.
  8. Alhamdulilah, I’ll I keep it simple. I don’t think anyone here is forming judgement against Iran based on allegations. The west is definitely not in a position to call out war crimes against anyone because there are too many violations by the west in the past and currently that have been swept underneath the rug. But Unfortunately there has been a lot of blood shed and if any believers were killed unjustly whether it was 2000 or 30,000 prisoners, then on the day of judgement, Allah will certainly judge those accordingly who were the aggressors and transgressed. For Muslims There is no such thing as greater good from wrongful deaths. It doesn’t matter if it was 2000 prisoners or 30,000 prisoners. Until the Mahdi (عليه السلام). appears, all leaders including Ayatollahs should be evaluated and held accountable because simply put they are regular men who are indeed fallible. This type of accountability should be held in all countries including Iran. If the people don’t hold their leaders accountable for crimes and mistakes even if it is just one wrongful death...it is a lost cause. The Holy Imams have said its better to be lose and die while being a just person rather than to overcome and gain by being a tyrant or an oppressor. Remember also Ameer Al-Mu’mineen (عليه السلام). was in the motion of getting ready to kill a man on the battle field until the moment that man spat in his face. Ali (عليه السلام). Let this man go because if he had killed him...it would have been out of Anger due to that man spitting in his face and not for the 100 percent pleasure of Allah. However, I agree with the above opinion that judgement should be withheld until there is proper research and examination done into the allegations. The truth always prevails. May Allah have mercy on the believing men and believing women.
  9. Alhamdulilah, Hmm, that’s interesting to me that this site would be blocked in Iran. Could this be considered a thin line between protective measures and slightly oppressive measures? This is a site where people come to question, learn, and express their thoughts mostly about faith and religion. Is the Iranian Marjaee that vulnerable to open dialect or criticism about themselves that they would cut freedom of speech in various forms. I understand what the Iranians have had to overcome but I don’t recall Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) or Imam Ali (عليه السلام). Or any of the infallible Imams taking away platforms for people to question and learn. Our Prophet and Imams won over many people by holding open dialogue and absorbing the ignorant things that were said about them. I recall reading About Amir Al mumineen (عليه السلام). Stopping in the middle of a battle to answer a Question that was asked about Allah by a soldier from the opposition. The Imam (عليه السلام). stopped and answered the question about Allah in the middle of battle because he said it was for this same reason why they were on the battle field fighting in the first place. I guess the Main point is that trying to silence the people who don’t share favorable opinion is the same thing most power dictators or oppressive governments would do to its people. So would this be a way of holding power or protecting the country from outside influence or fitnah.
  10. Alhamdulilah, May Allah shower his blessings on Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and his family. Alhamdulilah, you can find all of this information in a book called Hayatul Qulub: volume 1 stories of the Prophets. It is one of my daily favorites after the The Holy Qur'an. Our Holy Imams go into very specific details about many of the Prophets before Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). starting with Adam (عليه السلام). My favorites which I consider the most extensive in information are stories especially dealing with Adam (عليه السلام). and the beginning, Also Nuh (عليه السلام). Because he is the second father of humanity after Adam. Da’ood (عليه السلام). Etc. You can find online version of Qulub on Al-Islam.org.
  11. Alhamdulilah, The flood was a long time coming. Nuh (عليه السلام). Lived for a very very long time. He received Prophethood at 800 years old and preached to the people for 900 years. The people had become too wicked in their ways. Nuh (عليه السلام). only ended up having 88 followers aboard the ship. According to the holy Imams Allah prevented the women from having children 40 years before the flood took place. So there weren’t any kids. Allah didn’t take away the innocent. The entire world society was wicked with unbelievers and Allah flooded everything and thus we begin what I would call the second age of man.
  12. Alhamdulilah, Saying Bismillah with conviction and being absolutely ok with the outcome. The closer you strive to get closer to Allah and increase your remembrance of Allah you will increase your courage. Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) has said that writing Surah Houd on a sheepskin and keeping it in one’s possession at all times makes one so courageous and bold that nobody can defeat him in combat. Whoever sees him will be filled with fear.
  13. Alhamdullilah, I agree with this statement. Also a lot of religion disguised in with nationalism from afar and upfront. It’s easy to see even the best of those in here with their biases. This is why I feel like Imam Mahdi will have to clean up on all sides.
  14. Alhamdulilah, I agree, there are many Native American tribes so there are most likely different faiths amongst them. In Islam, God tells us that he sent Prophets to all the nations so some of these tribes could have held on to tawhid teachings. In order for them to have held on to those teachings they would have had to been on that signal of belief.
  15. Alhamdulilah, It May be very well that a Native American with a joint just might have more definition or more of an understanding of tawhid than you think they may have. From my understanding Allah sent messengers to all the nations. It’s very likely that amongst all the nations there are those who understand this principle of tawhid and monotheism internally. How else would we explain the spreading of Islam across the world. Do Muslims of today believe themselves to be responsible for increasing believers around the world? Allah increases believers where he see fit by his will. Tawhid is already around the world. We as Muslims just need to invite. Allah guides whom he wills and By striving to stay close to Allah and his Holy books and striving to follow the example of the Ahlul Bayt should make us confident because Allah and his Qur'an are the truth as well his Messengers and guided Imams.
