  1. Salams, I was hoping If I could recieve an explanation for the above questions. JazakumuAllah
  2. Salams, Another question, so creation is considered to be wajib li-ghayrihi, but even after creation, would we still be considered mumkin, as is in, is this still part of our essence?
  3. Walaikum Assalam Thanks for the explanation, this makes more sense. So creation ends up being wajib, would something that is non-existent fall in the mumtan'i category? When you say "possible through the other" , do you mean no mumkin could be possible through another mumkin and that's why we it's just mumkin?
  4. ADD ON: The book also mentions this paragraph; "And as for the "possible", its existence does not come about because of something else, so it is of no use to confine it to that which is possible in itself, except to explain that it does not come into being except in that ay. There is no need of guarding against anything besides". The previous paragraphs just mention why Wajib and mumtan'i al wujud are broken down into li thatihi and li ghayrihi. Aren't mumkins (possible) brought into existence by a cause, because of God, why does it mention that "its existence does not come about because of something else".
  5. Assalamu Alaikum, I'm a little confused as to where humans stand in existence. So I get that there are three types of classifications for existence; there's Wajib, Mumkin, and Mumtan'i al-wujud and that Wajib and Mumtan'i al-wujud can be broken down further into li-thatihi and li-gharyihi, however, I don't understand why Mumkin-al-wujud only considers li-thatihi and not li-ghayrihi. I also don't quite understand which category we fall into, are we considered wajib al wujud li-ghayrihi (i know li-thatihi is only for God) or mumkin-al-wujud. Where do we stand, as in all beings? I'm not to sure I understand what li-thatihi actually means. In the book, Al Bab al Hadi 'Ashar, li-thatihi means "in itself". But what does it mean "in itself", is anyone able to explain this?
  6. Assalamu Alaikum, InshAllah all is well. So God Willing, I'm planning on learning about Islam in more depth and I need some advice. For this, I plan to start of learning more about the following: Usul ad-Din Furu' ad-Din Islamic Law History Qur'an If there's anything else that I've missed that are also important, please do mention them. That's what I'm hoping to focus on for the next foreseeable future. Is there any specific structure that you guys would recommend, should I focus all my efforts on one of these for example, Usul ad-Din and then maybe move onto another area after, or should I focus on multiple areas at once, so maybe an hour or so on Usul ad-Din and another on history? Is there another structure that would perhaps be better than what was mentioned? Also, in terms of studying religion, what helped you learn more (tips) that can also help me, for example note taking or another method and strategy. JazakumuAllah.
  7. Assalamu Alaikum, So I woke up today and my under garments were wet not to the extent that it would be urine but it was wet. Is it necessary to do ghusl because I do not know if it was semen as a result of a wet dream, basically I did not feel anything happen and do not know if it was urine. Is there any ruling from Sayed Sistani that talks about this? Would I need to change my clothes or repeat my salaat because it woke up late for fajr. @Muhammad Al-Hurr If anyone else has an answer it would be appreciated.
  8. Assalamu Alaikum, I hope all is well. This post is going have a few questions: When it comes to concentrating in salaat, what exactly should I be thinking or concentrating on? Am I supposed to be thinking about the words I'm saying or should I be thinking about God, or both? Is there something I'm missing or not understanding about salaat. Depending on what answers you guys give, it would greatly apppreciated if any tips or advice are offered or even books to read or videos to watch. I find it difficult to remember God throughout the day, or neglectful in other words. I feel as though at instances I get so distracted that I forget God, I want to try and deal with this issue before it gets out of hand. Are there any tips or advice that have helped you. I want to be able to remember God more often. This is similar to the first question, whenever I am doing any amaal for example, takbeer or tahmeed or remembering God in general, should I be focusing on what I'm saying or focusing on God, what should be occupying my mind as I'm doing the aamal? JazakumuAllah.
  9. Walaikum Assalam, @Muhammad Al-Hurr should be able to help here. I'll give you some rulings from Sayed Sistani until Brother Muhammad can confirm. As for questions 1 this shouldn't be an issue, for question 2, I have heard the same from a local sheikh. Ruling 347. It is recommended that one urinates after ejaculation; if he does not urinate, and after performing ghusl some fluid comes out about which he does not know whether it is semen or some other fluid, it is ruled as being semen. Question 3, it is better not to because, answer to question 4, as Sayed Sistani says, if one does not urinate and after performing ghusl a fluid comes out which he does not know whether it is semen or some other other fluid, it will be ruled as semen. So you would have to do ghusl again, and the ruling 353 mentioned under would need your attention. Ruling 353. If a person sees semen on his clothes and knows that it has come from himself and he has not performed ghusl, he must perform ghusl and make up [i.e. perform as qaḍāʾ] those prayers that he is certain of having performed while he was junub. However, it is not necessary for him to make up those prayers that he deems only probable of having performed before ejaculation of the semen.
  10. Salams all, I was wondering, does anyone here do any UI/UX design for mobile apps or websites?
  11. JazakumuAllah alif jaza', I understand now that it is crucial to work for earning a living in this world and preparing for the akhira. I just have small questions here and there, let's say I'm at my work and during salat time,have only enough time to pray and do tasbih az zahra, should I be concerned about doing the other taaqibat or do them only when I have time. With regards to this, would creating a self-sustaining business (e.g. an app that generates revenue), after working on it, ends up giving you a regular income without you needing to pay too much attention to it (only once a month for example) to work on other things, maybe another business or something, be the same as whats describe above, a not serious effort. [EDIT] I forgot to add this. In the previous month or so, I've been trying to develop a business, read about running one and other stuff related. It was all fine until something made me realise (I feel like I got slapped in the face) that I've been severely neglecting my deen because I was too engrossed into learning about this. Yes I was praying the five prayers but the five prayers but I feel as though they were done without much concentration. Is there any dua or advice you guys can give with regards to this, how can I make sure this behaviour is kept in check, so I don't go neglecting my deen while working for worldy affairs.
  12. I want to ask, is it correct to be thinking in this manner: there is no point in working hard in this life to the extent that one should just earn enough for a basic living through a simple job because at the end of the day, any material wealth gained would eventually be left behind and none of it would join you in the next life so it is better to just work for the hereafter, divert all efforts to preparing for the hereafter and live a basic life in the dunya.
  13. Assalamu Alaikum, I need advice wih regards to managing my time between the worldy life and preparing for the hereafter. We see many hadiths telling us that we should priortise the hereafter because at the end of the day, we will only have our deeds with us and not any material gain from this life. But we also have hadiths that say we should work for this world as if we're going to be living in it forever but to work for the hereafter as if we will be dying tommorrow. So I know I need to work for both, try to build a living and become successful in both the dunya and the akhira but I do not know how much time I should allocate for each. For example, how I should I split my time between; working, learning and gaining knowledge related to the dunya for example, building and running businesses, studying engineering and gaining religious knowledge and practicing islamic rituals and doing good deeds. How should I split my time between working for the dunya and preparing for the akhira (gaining religious knowledge and doing good deeds)? [NOTE] If the way it's currently written a little confusing because it doesn't right to me, do leave a comment and I can try to reword it.
  14. As brother @Mahdavist has said, it is a good idea to try and get rid of the factors that get you feeling this way. This is the key to solving these problems. Try to figure what causes you too feel this way and discontinue that action. For example, speaking to the opposite gender in a certain way causes these feeling to spike so it is best to avoid talking to the opposite gender. Any other factor that fuels your urgers should be removed.
  15. @Ashvazdanghe So let's say we get permission, is it a problem if we gain profits on this model for example I sell it on my store for $10 more than what the supplier is selling as to gain a profit? Wasalam
