  1. Alhamdulilah, I’m not necessarily emphasizing but mostly just giving perspective. But I will say for me personally If I can I prefer to have wudhu when I’m out and about. I feel like I’m plugged in and can recite Quran or pray rakaats at any moments notice. I’m not all the way certain but I believe you can only recite 7 ayaats without wudhu, someone with more knowledge can chime in and correct me if I’m wrong about that. But back to your question it’s up to you if you would prefer to make 2 rakaats after a fresh wudhu but it’s not obligatory. Alhamdulilah I’m no expert but I
  2. Alhamdulilah, Like brother Abdus Sibtayn mentioned above, although it is desirable it is not compulsory to maintain wudhu throughout the day. There is also the Hadith in which Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) approached Bilal (رضي الله عنه). And inquired as to what he was doing in his daily routine of worship. Muhammad SAW questioned Bilal because during his assent he heard the footsteps of Bilal before he even reached the heavens. Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) asked Bilal what was he doing extra that he could think of. Bilal replied that he couldn’t really think of what he
  3. Alhamdulilah! Always Good to see you dear brother and Thank you for the good words! Allah has given us another opportunity to seek his mercy and blessing in these upcoming months. May Allah shower his mercy on all the believing men and women especially in the times of rapid trials and fitnah.
  4. Alhamdulilah, I agree with brother Abu Hadi. You should wait until after US elections if you choose Dearborn. Shia communities are big in Dearborn. If you already have family in Dearborn then that could make your transition much easier instead of moving somewhere and starting from scratch. Once you are in Dearborn you can easily visit Canada and see how you like it first since it’s close to Dearborn. I don’t think Canada is letting Anyone from America in their country right now due to the corona problem in the states. However, I think this will change after the elections as well.
  5. Alhamdulilah, Sounds like most of your problems stem from not wanting to go to sleep because you fear your dreams and the energy drinks to keep you from falling asleep so that you don’t dream. It only makes sense that you would be sleepy after Fajr if you stay up all night. Surah ad-Dukhan (The Smoke) This is a ‘makki’ Surah and it has 59 ayaat. It is narrated from the Holy Prophet (S) that if this Surah is recited at night, then seventy thousand angels pray to Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).) to forgive the sins of the reciter. If recited on Thursday nights, all sins are fo
  6. Alhamdulilah, Very good question, Astaghfir’Allah I played chess in my teenager years and early twenties. I became very good and well known in my city where ranked chess players frequently went to play. For me it was Islam, School, and chess. Chess took a lot of my time but compared to all the trouble other kids my age were getting into maybe chess also kept my mind focused on something that I thought at the time was more constructive? I stopped playing once I found out it was not halal to play. I wasn’t sad because I had already made a transition of not playing anymore due to the
  7. Alhamdulilah, Asalaam wa laikum , Its called Fawaid e Quran and it is very beneficial because Muhammad SAW and the holy Imams AS detail what certain surahs and verses are good for in all aspects of life. You can find here: https://www.al-islam.org/fawaid-e-quran-sayyid-mustafa-musawi/benefits-recitation-chapters-holy-quran#surah-al-qiyamah-resurrection
  8. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, As Salaam wa laikum, Sorry to hear about your father and his state of ignorance. Is he in a constant state of intoxication? He could be a believer but his weakness for alcohol has a strong hold over him and the Jinn that is accompanying his constant sin is strong with him, so his actions reflect that of a kuffar and if he were to die in such a state it would not be good for his transition and position in the grave and his position on Yauma Qiyamah. You should constantly seek refuge from Shaitan when in the company of your father. You don’t necessa
  9. Astaghfir’Allah, Too much judgement in this thread. Allah is the judge of all our affairs. People marry for various reasons such as money, beauty, etc but we know marrying for the pleasure of Allah is the best reason. The sister has a right to practice mut’ah as long as she is abiding by the rules that go along with pleasure contract marriage. If she was a pure Harlot prostitute she wouldn’t practice the laws of marriage at all and wouldn’t wait until her iddah duration was over. Real Harlot prostitutes are not confound to the laws of Islam because for them it’s a type of power and
  10. Alhamdulilah, Alhamdulilah brother, May Allah Be with you on your journey in trying to get closer to Him. From what I read in your post you haven’t denounced Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) or Islam or Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). and his Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). and you haven’t come across as an enemy of the Ahlulbayt. Everyone’s road to learning and gaining understanding about this deen will not look the same. Being a Shia is not merely going by name. It’s in heart and practice that aligns with Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). and His Ahlulbayt way. A group of Men wal
  11. Alhamdulilah, Yeah I agree with you as well. I will most definitely kill mosquitos, flies, fleas etc. I try not to kill ants but it depends on the species and how volatile they are. Some ants are harmless and peaceful so I don’t mind them seeking their sustenance at times in the food space. In Texas we have fire ants which are very hostile but usually tend to remain outside. I will most likely try to eliminate them especially if bitten. I guess I share the same opinion for some insects as well. Some insects I’m ok with and some insects I admire from afar. Currently I believe the J
  12. Alhamdulilah, To be honest I’m not really interested in any types of animals in my living space. I have an exception for maybe some cats that keep themselves on the cleanly side. I do believe any creature that enters the home which can be a danger or health risk should be removed by means necessary. I like animals but there are some I’m not too fond of due to the dangers they pose. I prefer to admire them from afar. Other than that live and let live.
  13. Alhamdulilah, i once read a Sunni Hadith which proclaims that when Ibrahim (عليه السلام). was catapulted into the fire all the animals were tying to put the fire out where as the house lizard was trying keep the fire going. In this particular Hadith it said that this is you should remove the house lizard.
  14. Alhamdulilah, I’m not sure Perhaps there are some errors but this Hadith comes from a credible Book Hayaatul Qulub. This is not the only Hadith in Hayaatul Qulub in which Allah educates the prophets in a way which displays that he is more merciful and more wise than even they can imagine. Keep in mind that even Prophets can not be equal to or greater to Allah in anything and they were being trained and educated by Allah as well. This type of education shows distinction between Allah and his messengers because they are not one or partners. But at the same time even though Allah is
