  1. Assalamualaikum, I need help, Guidance and advice regarding some aspects in my life which are causing me to lose my religion. I'll be discussing the main one's below and if you want to know more details or have any questions, feel free to ask. I'll start from the beginning. When I was 12, I was super religious. I used to do everything my parents told me and I also used to pray on a daily basis. Then there was a moment where my parents had family issues and they asked me to make dua and ask for God's help. I did that with my whole heart. And all of it was rejected. I mean, everything I asked from God, was denied. Things started to go the wrong way and I don't know why I always felt like it was my fault. I think I felt this way because I thought I asked something from God which he denied and that's why everything went the wrong way. It became so bad to such an extent that I gave up on him. I stopped being religious. I went against it. I stopped believing that there was a God. Now I'm 21. I met this girl. I fell in love with her. It is because of her that I reverted back. I started believing again, I developed patience. I'm honestly trying. But, unfortunately, she already loves someone else. So there's no way me and her could even be together. Including this, there's so much more bad that's happening in my life (like my parents almost dying, they also almost divorced each other, me losing myself, and that constant feeling I have that I'm NOT worth anything and it's okay for people to hurt me and more) that's causing me to move away from religion. They say that when you walk towards God, he tests you with trials to see if you actually are a believer. My mental state is very weak right now. I'm so lost that I don't even know who I am or what I'm supposed to be doing. These "trials" (if that's what they are) are making me lose my mind. I'm yet again losing faith in HIM, and honestly, I just don't know what to do anymore. So considering all this, 1. How is one supposed to be with others (with everyone being selfish, rude, taking advantage of good people) according to religion? 2. How do I NOT lose my faith and hope in Allah? 3. How do I get over the bad stuff that happens? 4. How do I figure out who I am and what I'm supposed to be doing? 5. My dad always used to tell me to NEVER break anyone's heart, even if yours shatters to pieces, because Allah doesn't like that. Considering people being selfish and always trying to take advantage of me, is it right according to religion to go against this? 6. How is one supposed to behave with good people according to religion? How is one supposed to behave with the so called bad people according to religion? I'm a little drowsy right now because it's getting late here, so I'm going to stop now. But please feel free to ask me ANYTHING, and please do help me get out of this. Thank you Wassalamunalikum
  2. Assalamualaikum, I'm sure there might be other post regarding my issue here, but I wanted proper clarity so I've started this post hoping to get clear answers. (PS- I follow Sistani) 1. What is the difference between madhi and wadi and wadhi? 2. What is the liquid called that comes out after some minutes when ejaculation is complete? Is it pure? Does it invalidate wudu and prayers? 3. Is it ok to perform istibra after ejaculation whether the person urinates or not? 4. After ejaculation, if a person does istibra, and then takes ghusl, he feels a sensation of liquid passing out of his penis. What is this liquid called? Is it pure? Does it invalidate prayers and wudu? 5. Sometimes after ejaculation, (whether I pee or not) after istibra and ghusl is done, a few minutes later (say 4-8mins), if I bend or sit, I feel a sensation of liquid passing out. What is this liquid called? Is it pure considering that istibra is done correctly? Does it invalidate prayers? Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  3. Is Sunni wudu accepted in our Shia Islam? If their wudu is like the Sunni wudu, (if it is invalid) doesn't it make the Salah itself invalid? So all Imam's are same till Imam Ja'far Sadiq ((عليه السلام)). What happened after him? I mean how did the imamate change after him? Why did the Bohras change the imamate? Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  4. I have no idea. As of now, it doesn't seem like she hopes for anything. The promise is only valid till her marriage (I hope so). And she's bound to get married within the next 2 years max. I made the promise with the intention to keep her happy. I mean, she doesn't really have any loyal or good friends and she's been betrayed a lot of times. I thought that if I made her this promise and treat her right, at least she'll be glad that she had someone she could trust and count on. At the time, I did what I thought was right. This has been really bothering me now considering the fact that I do not know if what I'm doing is right or wrong. And now if I just leave her, I'll be one of those friends that aren't loyal. Walking away now would be like I'm betraying her. And it's something I do not want to do for her. I'm so lost. Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  5. Assalamualaikum, As far as I am aware, interaction with the opposite gender is considered haram in our Shia Islam. But then again, I've met people who say that interaction with the opposite gender is halal only if you have no negative or sexual feelings towards that person. Considering this, what could be the conclusion? My situation now is that, I have recently become religious. Before that I used to hangout with girls. And one of them, I've gotten real close to. I have no negative or sexual urges towards her. She isn't really religious. (I come from the Twelvers side and she comes from the Bohra side of Shia Islam). And to be honest, I don't really want to lose her. She's a good person which is why I love and adore her so much, though she engages in haram stuff, which I'm sure she'll overcome soon (or at least I hope so). I have also promised her that I won't ever leave her. That I'll always be with her. (We're not dating. We're just friends) And now, Shia Islam says, interaction with the opposite gender is haram. Shia Islam also says to fulfil promises (there are a few quotes on this by Imam Ali as well). I'm stuck. I don't know what to do. I need help.
  6. Assalamualaikum, Are Sayed Ammar Nakshawani's lectures real and genuine? I was thinking of ordering his book called "The 14 Infallible's" to learn more about our Ahlul Bayt and some of the people I know said that his lectures aren't all true and that his beliefs are a little different. They even told me that the TV channel called AhlulbaytTV also canceled broadcasting his lectures for this reason. Personally, I became more religious BECAUSE of his lectures that I saw on YouTube. But now, some people I know are against a few of his beliefs. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me if Sayed Ammar Nakshawani's lectures and books are real or correct? Is it correct to believe in the information he gives us? Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah!
  7. Assalamualaikum, So what can one do about this? And What is he supposed to say if he faces a situation where he has to go against a certain sect of feminism? Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  8. Assalamualaikum, This is exactly what I meant when I said that Islam does preach some parts of feminism. Jazakallah Kair Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  9. Assalamualaikum, But are they like on the right path? Can we call them "real" Shia Muslims? And why did they change their Imamate if Prophet Muhammed (p.b.u.h) or Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) had already made it clear that after him there will only be 12 Imam's? Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  10. Assalamualaikum, Feminism basically means equal rights and opportunities for men and women. I think it mainly started with demands of equal wages for men and women, when it was found out that, a lot of the companies were paying only around 60%-70% of the salary that the men were getting, for the same job. I think these are the reasons why feminism started becoming a trend in the recent years. This is the basis of feminism itself (as far as I am aware). Islam does approve of this. Do look into the hadith and teaching of the Prophets and our Ahlul Bayt and you might understand the value and importance and equality that women have in Islam. Some of the ideologies of feminism such as degrading men, doing whatever they want, and the use of the word feminism to get away with certain things etc is something that Islam does not approve. I agree on that. Allah knows best Wassalamulaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  11. Assalamualaikum, I recently met a friend who said she was a Shia. When I got to know her better I found out that she is a Shia Bohra Muslim. I honestly had no idea until then that our Shia Islam was divided into more sects. I always thought we were united and one together. We still are and I know that, since even Bohra Shia's Immate ends with Imam Mahdi ((عليه السلام)). But it's just that I do not know much about these other sects. I know there are more threads here on this topic, but I couldn't find proper information on them. I asked my friend more about her Bohra Shia Islam but she is not aware about it. She isn't much religious either (a fact that I do not approve of). So I hoping that if someone could explain to me more about Bohra Shia Islam and how it came into existence and what they are all about. Also some tips on how to make her more interested in religion (or more religious) would be good too xP Jazakallah Khair Wassalamalaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  12. Assalamualaikum, I think this is what @3wliya_maryam meant when she spoke of her view. Equality in the sense of their worth as human beings and beings with a roh (spirit) in them is perfectly correct. A part of feminism also preaches this mainly to avoid abuse and disrespect of women. We have to admit that in this generation, there are many men who feel superior to their other half or women in general JUST BECAUSE they are men. This isn't right with respect to feminism or Islam and people need to realize this. I think it's all because of bad society who made these stupid rules which became a tradition and is being passed on. Again, which isn't correct in Islam. Wassalamunalaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  13. Assalamualaikum, There is no such thing like "Shia by name". We are only proper Shia Muslims, if we follow all the Prophets, and then the Ahlul Bayt. Following them, and NOT following their teachings or sayings is a different thing. Allah knows best! Wassalamunalaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  14. Assalamualaikum, I think Islam DOES preach feminism in a way. Considering, that there different parts of feminism, it does. The part where women must be treated with love and respect, no abuse of any kind, and overall equality and good-treatment of women IS something that Islam approves of. Not needing anything other than the Qur'an and Ahlul Bayt is something I agree on, because I think there are answers for almost EVERYTHING there. Wassalamunalaikum Wa Rahmatullah
  15. Assalamualaikum, My point exactly! No words could have explained better! Thank you so much! Wassalamunalaikum Wa Rahmatullah
