  1. sorry I forgot about that tread, but no one told me how to get in contact with anyone in my area. which is what I'm trying to get here.
  2. I've only meet a handful of Muslims and I'm not in contact with them anymore. There is no mosque in the town I live in and very few if any Muslims. I want to hold prayer service at my home on Friday. How do I find willing Muslims?
  3. whats the difference between receiving interest from a bank and a person? I mean the bank is owned by people.
  4. Here some info on Sufi meditation here. You don't have to be a Sufi to do it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muraqabah
  5. I live in the us all the banks in the are pay interest on a savings account. I'm pretty sure the answer is no. I already have a free checking account with no fees or interest. But I want to separate my money a little. any other options
  6. I don't speak a word of Arabic or Farsi the translation is whats important thanks.
  7. I'm an adult revert, I'm interested in both books that aren't specific to Shia Islam as well as Shia specific books. I've read the Qur'an (English translation) and will finish a manual of hadith by Maulana Muhammad Ali within the next few days what should I read next. I'm not firmly Shia or Sunni and want to study in depth before I make a final decision. I only speak English but have started studying the Arabic alphabet yesterday I need books with English translation along with the Arabic or no Arabic at all.
  8. Sometimes I feel the same I haven't been able to attend mosque since reverting due to there not being one in the area so I feel isolated from both communities either way you're still a Muslim. That's what's important.
  9. There are Islamic cards that charge a flat fee rather than interest.
  10. I need to be able to make the minimum payment for months.
  11. I live in the us and I need a credit card, where can I find one that's halal?
  12. Many people are born to religious parents and don't have a faith of there own or belong to a different faith than there parents. Your still making a decision even if you practice your parents faith devoutly. Who you born to only dictates what your taught to believe not what you actually believe born Muslims are making a decision to have faith the same way I am as a revert.
  13. I'm especially interested in what Persians/Iranians consider themselves. Some have blue or green eyes and light colored hair which a white traits. No matter your race or ethnicity I have respect for everyone and other Muslims are my brothers and sisters irregardless of there ancestry. I'm guessing they consider themselves to be there own race, and feel that there just Persian or what ever other ethnic group they belong to considering Iran has multiple ethnic groups in it. Does any one consider them a type of white and how do actual Iranians feel about it?
  14. I'm 27 and still can't even grow a patchy beard. I only have some stubble here and there so I'm curious if it would be permissible to use rogaine witch is a chemical treatment applied to the skin to treat baldness. Some people use it to thicken facial hair to. Is it altering gods creation to use it or other similar products?
  15. I've read that you write your own certificate and have it notarized to allow you to preform Hajj or get married. What information must be included to go to mecca and would a name change make so I don't need a certificate. My legal first name means one who worships Jesus and is supposed to be changed anyway. Would taking an Arabic last and first name mean that I wouldn't need a certificate. I want one for my personal records just to commemorate my conversion and don't intend to visit mecca anytime soon so I'm considering leaving the passport number off until I can get a passport witch takes about three months but longer for me because my legal name is going to change it may take a 6 to 8 months before I'll be able to get one. I want the certificate now. should I get one and just replace with an updated version later?
  16. For a misyar to be valid is it required that you become legally married or is just signing a contract that isn't legally binding good enough. Can I write and sign my own nikha that isn't recognized by the government and what other requirements are there? Is it any different for a standard marriage agreement?
  17. no one reached out to me. I'm going to wait until I can move somewhere with a Muslim community to pursue a relationship
  18. There more similar to Sunnis than Shia and they believe that Yukob created white people in a scientific lab past that I don't much. some are racist some just want to support black people.
  19. The only community in the area is Nation Of Islam and I'm mostly white. they only accept black members. so I'm usually alone. Sometimes born Muslims think most reverts leave and go back to there old religion or to something new so there is a small amount of suspicion or reluctance to accept.
  20. Any theological reasons like Ali should have been the first kalif?
  21. I hear 85% of Muslims are Sunni. Why did you choose shiism?
