  1. Differs from individual to individual, couple to couple. 1. Many people say that they are in love, when in fact its just infatuation. 2. One of the roots of infatuation is the thrill of meeting someone by hiding from family and known people. But when you actually live with this person, he/she will seem to you as a completely different person. 3. You may think you know that person completely, when in reality, some of their habits, you may not be aware of. 4. Being in love and doing things for each other may seem lovely, but the couple is supposed to be "ready" for marriag
  2. Yes. Possible. Maybe he didn't pass his test. Maybe that's why God put another test/hardship to help him grow. But again, it wouldn't be anything he can't bear. And that's God's promise isn't it?
  3. We also say that Allah is All-knowing. And taking your own example, Allah wouldn't have taken the kid's parents away from him/her, if He didn't know that the relatives would steal the inheritance from the kid. Basically what I'm trying to say is, Allah knew that in the near future the kid's relatives will steal the inheritance and hence Allah placed a divine testing system to, maybe test the kid with poverty and orphanage. We may not know the real reason, because us as humans, have a limited mental capacity right? So it's safe to say that this kid, had to be tested, or had to go thr
  4. I do think intention matters. Intentions are solely the base of our words and actions. We most of the time may not even realize that we had certain intention to do or say something, but everything till the end result of our actions and words depends on our intention in the beginning, right?
  5. Assalamualaikum, I went through the EXACT SAME phase. It went up to a point where I started questioning God's existence itself. But, alhumdulillah, I overcame it. To answer this, common sense helped me. When I did some research into our Shia Islam, you'll see HUMANITY in it. Basically, everything whatever Islam asks us or recommends us to do, is for our own benefit. It is for us to grow. It is for us to become the perfect human. The morals and traits that the Ahlulbayt have displayed, and the morals that they ask us to follow are the best ones that one can find. It's really am
  6. Assalamualaikum, There's a hadith from Imam Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) from Tuhaf Al Uqool, pg 409 : "Strive to divide your day into 4. For God, For Livelihood, For your loved ones, For You." According to this, try to make a schedule that you are comfortable with and can easily stick to. This way you'll have enough time allotted to each activity/goal that you want to achieve on a daily basis. Also, Allamah Tabatabai in the book "Light Within Me" says to be moderate in your spirituality/performance in your early stages of faith. This is because consistency is more important.
  7. Assalamualaikum, I have dealt with this issue earlier too and alhumdulillah I overcame it. To me personally, it was the intention and perspective that mattered. I realised that I had no schedule or routine to follow everyday and hence was constantly worried about a lot of things. Ended up dreaming about some of them as well. I came across a few videos of Ali Reza Panahian where he says how religion is a program for a better life. It made a lot of sense to me. His videos changed my perspective and outlook on life. There's also a hadith from Imam Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) from Tuhaf Al
  8. Assalamualaikum, I've felt this way too. But again, as far as I'm aware (please do correct me if I'm wrong) the tragedies did not take place on the same year. Yes, the eids are close to the tragedies, but I always take up those days 'individually'. For example, on Eid-e-Ghadeer, I'm solely focused on the wilayah of Imam Ali. And that is enough to bring me joy and happiness. Mainly because I'm celebrating the "wilayah of Imam Ali" and not the day itself. Once the day comes close to its end, I divert my focus back to the tragedy of Karbala.
  9. Waalaikumasslam, It's a really good thing that you want to cling to the hijab, regardless of what your mother says. When does she ask you to remove it? If you're at home, around family members, then it is not necessary to wear the hijab all the time, though it is recommended. Don't judge her. Leave that to Allah. I have read somewhere that it is right to disobey someone who takes you away from Allah.
  10. Waalaikumassalam, For a beginner, I'd highly recommend "Light Within Me" (by Ayatullah Murtadha Mutahhari, Allamah Hussain Tabatabai, Ayatullah Khomeini) I have linked the book down below - https://www.al-islam.org/https%3A//www.al-islam.org/light-within-me-mutahhari-tabatabai-khomeini This will not only show you how to perfect your character, but it will also help you get a better understanding of divinity and will help you get closer to Allah.
  11. Assalamualaikum, Timeless replies from the ahlalbayt (عليه السلام): Somebody requested Imam Ali to advise him how to lead a useful and sober life. Imam Ali thereupon advised him this: "Do not be among those people who want to gain good returns without working hard for them, who have long hopes and keep on postponing repentance and penance, who talk like pious persons but run after vicious pleasures. Do not be among those who are not satisfied if they get more in life and are not content if their lot in life's pleasures is less (they are never satisfied), who
  12. Assalamualaikum, I do believe its because of moving "backwards" in religion, misunderstanding the status of women, men/fathers/brothers letting jealousy and possessiveness get in the way, lust etc. Men ourselves indulge in such activities. Some do it with the right intention, others do it for time-pass or just to play around. Some men play around with the woman's feelings while she stays hopeful of having a life with them, in such cases, the man takes advantage and proceeds with playing with her until she is completely exhausted of her feelings resulting her being completely unsatis
  13. Assalamualaikum, This is very true. I have noticed such behavior in myself. I think suppressing emotions doesn't just end up with men lashing out, but it also results in constant irritated moods, confusion when it comes to certain decisions because the person is unaware of how they feel (because they start to get mixed feelings about due to the bottling up of their emotions), inability to express love and care, unintentionally hurting others (because you fail to acknowledge your own feelings so how can you acknowledge others?) and so on. I feel like there are so many barriers t
  14. Salam All Shia Marjas accepted them as Shias like as Alawis & their Namaz is near to 12er Shias but their wudu is like as Sunnis also they visit holy sites of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) & Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) in Iraq that grand ayatollah Sistani accepted them as other Shias that can visit & do pilgrimage also they attend in Arbaeen walking & pilgrimage also they celebrate Eid of Ghadir & repair or install Darih over graves of Shia Imams also 12er can have marriage with them but we can't have marriage with Aghakhani Ismailis that call themselves as Shias but don't fo
  15. Assalamualaikum, Here's the link for the full movie. The full movie is dubbed in Arabic. I couldn't find English subtitles, but if anyone has them or knows where to download it, kindly share the link below. http://www.mediafire.com/file/m1ai4ygff181id3/Hussein_Who_Said_No.mp4/file Wa-assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
