    guest 2025 got a reaction from PureExistence1 in Doubts over the story of Khidr and Musa   
    It's like the hypothetical question of "Would you kill hitler as a child?" In this case, Khidr did to prevent disaster. And look at it this way, the boy who would have grown up to be evil was cut short before he could commit a single sin. I view this as an incredible mercy for him because he gets to be resurrected on Judgement Day without an atom of a sin on his book, when if history took a slightly different turn, he would have been among the most wicked and in a very bad position. That boy was spared Hell.
     
    I don't understand this point
    He was not needed, but that was how it went down. It was also necessary for Prophet Moses s.a to witness so he may be tested.
     
    It was not one specific incident, it was one part of about three incidents which were all connected. If we want to find meaning in one then we have to look at the entire thing. I interpret it as: You see one pixel, God sees the entire picture. Everything that Khidr did was objectionable on the surface, but once Prophet Moses s.a found out how this was going to affect the future, he realized that it was actually a mercy.

    guest 2025 got a reaction from Allah Seeker in If our imam atf reappeared today, would he ........   
    I'm sure they're juggling many, many factors. It's easy for us to talk, but for them they know that whatever they say millions of people will do and that added pressure does affect what they end up saying. I personally don't plan on taking the vaccine, but I am open to the possibility that what I think may be wrong. If I were a marji3 and this happens then millions of people abstained from medicine when they didn't have to, endangering their lives. If I were a marji3, and believe it or not I am not, I'd tell them I don't forbid you from taking the vaccine, but it would be better if you practiced social distancing until at least a year and a half so we may know the long term effects of the vaccine. And even that would be a compromised answer, since I'd like to tell them to practice social distancing for 3-5 years. But of course I can't say that based on a belief that I'm only 85% sure of.

    Small nothings in the emptiness.


    And Earth?

    A blue dot

    On the unfolding canvas of space

    A small pin [Edited Out] of light

    In the dark black caverns of space.


    And me?

    Who am I?

    When I say “Speak to me”

    How can I expect an answer?

    What audacity even to pray!

    Yet I wait in the silence of morning.


    A new day creeps across the garden

    The sun rises a crimson dinner plate

    The birds sing a chorus of life

    The flowers spread a tapestry of colour

    The dew sparkling diamonds in the grass.


    And in the morning stillness

    A voice.

    I am heard,

    I am answered,

    You speak to me!

    Thank you.

    I sort of agree. The only measure of value for a human is their level of piety and the content of their character. So the differences between all types of people is irrelevant, but we should not ignore that men and women are DIFFERENT. Men have their roles, women have theirs. But the beauty of God's mercy is that He compensates one sex's weakness with the opposite's strength. One has the other's back. The secular world does not respect this team designed by God Himself, it has contempt for it and wishes to tear it down.

    guest 2025 reacted to Shia+ in Shia+ is now on the App Store!   
    Good question. So every app and even maraje3 get prayer times based on the location and a calculation method. Shia+ generates the times using your location and I use the Shia Ithna Ashari (Jafari) calculation method. Sayed Sistani’s office is correct in saying they can’t confirm it since they don’t know what app or calculation method you got your prayer times from, and although I personally trust the mathematical equation used to generate prayer times, every app and marja3 that gives prayer times is technically an estimate since they all obviously are generating prayer times in the future and have not actually seen the sun with their own eyes. Even mosques all over the world get their prayer times using these calculations. I’ve never seen my local sheikh go outside to verify before reciting the adhan and praying in congregation. They all pretty well trust these methods in my opinion. 
     
    Like I said, I personally trust the calculations since using calculations we as humans are able to tell what day and time the next solar and lunar eclipses are for the next 100+ years, land a rocket on a moving meteor, land a rocket on Mars and the moon, etc., all using astronomical calculations. But to be 100% sure they’re saying you should exercise precaution. 
     
    If you would like, as a precaution, in the Shia+ settings you can add extra time after each prayer. It’s up to you. I hope I answered your question!

    3. Marriage of the young - of a male who has not reached puberty to a female who has not reached puberty - was until recently very common in many Eastern societies, and hence the book of religious rulings included some of its rules in its previous versions, but it was observed that it had receded at current times, and that was removed in the latest versions. What we wish to emphasise is that the parent of a girl cannot give permission for her marriage unless it is in her interest, and most often there is no interest in her marriage until she reaches physical maturity and mental preparedness for sexual activity, as it is also not in her interest to marry in contravention to law which would make her liable for unnecessary repercussions and problems. (https://www.sistani.org/english/archive/26348/) I appreciate the above posts. What I don't appreciate is all the people who're hurling emotionally charged, ill-mannered complaints and disrespectful comments towards the religious authorities, merely in response to the face value of the matter, without (as it seems from some of these comments) trying to develop at least a half-decent-layman-version of an understanding of the matter.
    From doing some quick skimming through this thread and online a bit, to me, a simpleton, it seems the ruling lingered in the previous editions of the ruling-book in the first place in response to and even in somewhat combat against/to regularize, certain unhealthy circumstances/customs/situations of previous times/societies. However, there is a lot of background I probably do not know still. The OP brought up how it was initially to prevent female infanticide/burying females alive. Additionally, some people in the past did indeed get married at super early ages and even before puberty (in fact even till not long ago - as I racall some stuff from my old genetics class prof) and so just thinking about it, there would have been need for some sort of tehcnicality/theory/rulings to govern those marriages, and it seems the rulings/religious-theory/technicality naturally and understandably let those marriages be I suppose. Alhumdolillah though for our sect/people, there was/is a stipulated age for when the marriage can be consummated, and it would be haram to consummate it before that. More importantly, how are we ignoring the fact that the father needed to have consented to the marriage in the first place and no father in their right mind would abuse their right and consent to an abusive marraige for his daughter (but let's say he's some sicko who plans to - then after properly applying the ruling as will be explained in the vid below, he would be commiting haram - if the marriage would not be in interest for and entail abuse/harm to his daughter). And with all permissible things, just because they're not outright labelled haram or even outright harmful, it doesn't mean it's the right thing to do (perhaps it just means that there hasn't been any discovered evidence to declare the act impermissible). Anyway, the fact of the matter is that the ruling has been removed by the marja (as it does not apply to our times - so those lamenting and arguing using modern psychology of its possibly harmful nature can save their efforts as the ruling no longer even applies in the first place and has been removed from the book, and nor did it allow for the delivery of harm to anyone to begin with). When the ruling was there, it was a strictly conditional ruling and the Sayyid below explains it really well (please watch):
    To add, as some brothers pointed out, there's a certain academic methdology to follow when deriving law - but I don't think we need to even get into that discussion now.

    وعليكم السلام
    I watched the video. He's saying what the scholar told me in that since cross-sex hormone replacement therapy and srs is the treatment for this defect of mine I should do it.
    It's just telling me to transition. I don't know if I can go through with that though. It will hurt my family deeply and cause so much social strife. How will I ever find a loved one and get married then and complete half my deen? How can I go on without my parents' acceptance and love? What if they disavow me and do not forgive me? How will Allah ever forgive me then for causing my parents this hardship.
    Also I don't understand is this allowed in Islam or not?
    1) I tried reaching out to r/detrans in two threads. One they didn't respond to at all. The other they said I should try transitioning and "boymode" (where you are on hrt but present as male outwardly) and see if that relieves my dysphoria without hurting my parents. I would feel terrible lying to and deceiving my parents though. Even the detransitioners are telling me to transition.
    2) I will definitely see a therapist ان شاء الله when I start making my own income in a few months but I need some relief now. My sabr is running out and the pain is becoming overwhelming and unbearable.
    3) Thank you. I spent a lot of time contemplating this. I have studied transgenderism and the community for a long time even while repressing. But at times I do still feel delusional and think I am a woman inside. That I have the soul of a woman. And that hurts me deeply.
    4) The problem is every hurdle is getting steeper and steeper to the point that I have even been contemplating suicide again even though I am on the strongest regimen of antidepressants right now and spent years unraveling my suicidal ideation and attempt when I was 20 through Islam and understanding of psychology. Somehow I'm worse off now.  
    5) I have done things like look in the mirror and say "I am a man, I am a man, I am a man" repeatedly. I tried lifting. I tried being more masculine and macho. All of it doesn't work or worse causes me to dissociate which causes me great emotional and mental pain.
    6) ان شاء الله I can somehow stay afloat because it feels like my nafs, the whole world, and even my fitra wants me to sink.
    I don't know Farsi and couldn't find the book online. I don't understand. Are you telling me to transition and consider using this doctor for srs?
    1) What are the conditions attached? I don't know the specifics.
    2) I already detest the Western "queer" and LGBT community for how it is against Islam and in its promotion of fasad especially among children. I just read about them to get some perspective on certain biological or social phenomena.
    3) I would rather these thoughts go away somehow without transitioning and become a normal man. I would rather be a real woman, then a normal man without dysphoria, then a transgender woman.
    I've done this before in the past. The problem is my mind is irrational in its desire to be a woman. I will do it again though
    Woman Pros: I feel attached to the maternal role and the role of being a wife, I feel attached and like feminine things, I wish to wear feminine clothing, I wish to look feminine, Female friendships are more emotional and deeper in my view, I relate more to other women and have always been good friends with them and many treat me as another woman in their groups, I can be more kind and nurturing and not have to be aggressive or domineering, I love the role and position of women in Islam, I wish I could wear hijab and niqab and always did even as a child for some reason--it just feels right and safer, I feel more attached to Sayyida Fatima and Zaynab, Real women can be pregnant and give birth and nourish their children
    Women Cons: Misogyny, domestic abuse, oppression and mistreatment in school and workplace if they participate there, sexual harassment and assault, Real women have to deal with haydh and pains of that and pains of childbirth
    Men Pros: Don't have to deal with misogyny and sexual assault and harassment, Seen as the more intelligent and stronger group so given privileges based on that, inheritance and money making, easier to get married and have children
    Men Cons: Male bodies are disgusting, I hate my body and facial hair and my privates and the shape of my body, I cannot relate to men and communicate with them well, I have never had good relationships with men, I am not aggressive or domineering enough to be like the other men, the biological functions of men and their privates to me is painful and grotesque and makes me feel uncomfortable with my body, I dislike wearing masculine clothes and acting masculine, I can't imagine being a husband and having intimacy with a woman and idk how that'll work
