  1. I’ve been on the path of spirituality for a while and I’ve been struggling with a few things. I am seeking some advice Firstly, I’ve been trying to speak less as there are so many hadith regarding how most of your sins are committed through your tongue. I notice that I am usually successful when it comes to communicating with my family member at home as a lot of time I am hable to hold back myself from saying things that are futile but when I meet my friend or someone else after a long time... I get excited and start talking a lot... I also tend to open up and spill my secrets or feeling to people whereas Imam Ali advises against this. The second problem is I don’t socialise much but when I do I am careful not to gossip or backbite but with women it’s difficult as they tend to all of a sudden bring up a topic about someone and start dicussing it. I find it very hard to cut them off and say “let’s not gossip/ backbite” as I find it a bit rude to cut them off when they are speaking. However, I condemn it in my heart while they r speaking about someone. When I get back home I feel very guilty about being a part of gossip and hence I feel being distanced from Allah because of it. This is a cycle that keeps happening. I repent but I keep repeating it as I feel like it’s not in my control. Sometimes I think if I should altogether stop speaking and meeting everyone I know. Islam says you should make pious friends but in this era its hard to find friends like that and even if your friends are religious they sometimes swear or backbite, so how should one go about it? Also these are my friends since 8-9 years so it’s not very easy to move away or cut them out of my life. I need some tips as to how I can socialise without sinning? how can I control myself from speaking much when I am around my friends. I want to get out of the cycle of sinning and guilt.
  2. The best dua for rizq is the dua for sustenance by Imam Jaffar Sadiq((عليه السلام)). Read it along with it’s meaning (if you’re a non Arab) . It’s just beautiful! May Allah grant you abundant rizq.
  3. I wanted to know if there are any architects here who can guide me with what I can do with my degree besides having a regular job. Any possible way I can put it to use by helping people or contributing to the path of ahlulbayt? I was thinking of an affordable and sustainable housing solutions for the refugees. Let me know if someone has similar ideas and would like to work on a project like this.
  4. I think Sayed Jawad Qazwini has it..Maybe it’s on his ytube channel
  5. Do you have any source or references?
  6. When is the Eid in the gulf countries?
  7. Dua iftitah Dua makarimul akhlaq Dua simaat (on saturdays) Dua Ahad (after morning prayer) Ziyarat Ashura (recommended daily) Ziyarat Aminullah Dua Yashtasheer 14 whispered prayers of Imam Sajjad Dua tawassul (on tuesdays) Dua Mujeer Dua Abu Hamza Thumali (absolutely beautiful and will bring you to tears) You can look into the book of sahifa sajadiya... It’s a treasure of duas.
  8. They probably are using the same photo to post different news articles but that doesn’t verifies that the news is untrue. Something similar happened to my someone from my family where their image shot for some other purpose was used in an article about domestic abuse domestic abuse
  9. Depends on what you mean by everyday Muslim.. To gain insight and transcend this world you need to be a person who refrains from any kind of sin and indulges in constant zikr of Allah
  10. Very well said.. and that why you see a society where almost everyone is heedless and drowned in this world and the one who is awake feels like a misfit in this world. Nonetheless we should always look up to the examples of some great scholars who are living in the present time amidst this world of materialism and yet dedicated to the life of spirituality.
  11. You’ve missed the point.. An ascetic who runs away from his responsibilities including the family and the community is not encouraged in Islam but what I am talking about here is giving up the luxuries of life so as to benefit your soul and get close to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). You didn’t paste the whole sermon where Imam Ali himself says that a big house in this world is of no use except if it’s used to serve the community. Amir al-mu'minin went to enquire about the health of his companion al-’Ala' ibn Ziyad al-Harithi and when he noticed the vastness of his house he said: What will you do with this vast house in this world, although you need this house more in the next world. If you want to take it to the next world you could entertain in it guests and be regardful of kinship and discharge all (your) obligations according to their accrual. In this way you will be able to take it to the next world. Illuminating the heart, speaking words of wisdom and discerning defects of this world is sums is well why we should live a lifestyle like that.
  12. The excerpt you posted from Nahj Al Balagha does not say so that it is just for people in charge of the community. Infact Allah in hadith Qudsi of ascension talks highly of the people who live an ascetic lifestyle. Whatever the Imams and the Prophets did was an example set for us and sure we can never reach their level of doing a certain act but we can strive to get close to it. I don’t think so they would do a certain thing if it wasn’t recommended for the normal crowd. Can you give me reference for this?
  13. It’s definitely not haram! There are not one but several hadith advising and praising this kind if lifestyle and it definitely isn’t something that can be undertaken by everyone. What is haram in Islam is monasticism and monk lifestyle. Asceticism is different than that.
  14. Yes I’ve done that.. It’s been a year since I haven’t watched any movie and I’ve been reading a lot of books and in fact reading books is what really inspires me to go further.
