  1. Salam Alaykum, I'm in a similar position. I am a practicing Shi'a and there are no Shi'as in my area. Personally, I will not marry a Sunni under any circumstances. I'm in my mid 20s, and it's been so hard because I really do wish to get married, but there's no one I can even consider. My parents are also homebodies and literally know nobody, so they aren't a huge help either. I really hope you do not consider marriage with a Sunni. While some scholars say it is permissible, it's just too much trouble. I've had female friends consider Sunni men, but it always led to a falling out. E
  2. Yes, I do think she's still Muslim, but she does not practice and has A LOT of doubts, and will constantly question Islam. She does not disclose her thoughts to my mother or I, though. It is mostly to my brother. They're 1 year apart and while they're not TOO close, they will confide in each other more than the rest of the family. Which is why, I believe my brother when he tells me he is concerned with her beliefs (he only told me this, and not my parents)
  3. 1. My mother has said she will disown her if she comes out. She is very concerned, but she thinks it may be a phase right now. She thinks my sister is trying to be rebellious or something. 2. She hates men for whatever reason. I don't see a reason, too. My sister and I are treated like queens in the household. While we did grow up in a religious household, the only thing that ever enforced us was the hijab. But, I was allowed to work, I had no curfew, I constantly would travel out of state with my friends, lived on my own for a bit. My sister has the freedom to do what she wants, but ref
  4. Salam Alaykum. I hope all of you are doing well. I was raised in a religious Iranian household in America. However, only my parents and I are practicing. I am a 24 year old sister myself. I have four younger siblings. This isn't a common problem in the Muslim community (maybe it is, but no one talks about it?) and I wasn't sure where to go for this. I've had my suspicions for about a year now, but I think my 20 year old sister is gay. Mostly because she hates hates hates the idea of getting married to a man. I've never said anything to anybody in my family because she is young and
  5. I second the al-islam.org website! Very, very reliable. It is hands down the best English source! If you're looking for duas/supplications, duas.org is great as well.
  6. Salam Alaykum, everyone. I made a previous post a while ago asking for advice on unanswered supplications. I've done everything in the book; every dua, every salat. I've written multiple letters to the Imam of our time. My own mother did Ziyarat for me to Imam Reza praying for me, as did my dad's family in Iraq, who also visited some of the Imams' shrines. I did Ziyarat Ashura 2x. However, this post isn't that. I already have the knowledge on etiquette and how to ask, so I'm not looking for anything like that. I've come to the conclusion that maybe Allah is not happy with me; m
  7. I definitely agree. I have written multiple letters (areezas) in the Imam. Even if my dua isn't accepted in this world, writing to the Imam and speaking to him definitely helps with the pain and gives me hope. Becoming closer to the Imam is much better than any dua I can ask for. Thank you for sharing your story. Personal experiences like these really do give me hope. May Allah continue to bless you!
  8. Thank you so much. I have read this post so many times and it still makes me cry each time. I'm so happy it has worked out for you. I've realized complaining and hastiness will not work in my favor. I will definitely keep praying. I have nothing else to offer but my namaz and duas. Inshallah, Allah accepts all of our prayers.
  9. Thank you for this I do have a question. What is "Completion of Qaza namaz and rooze with the applicable kafarah."?? My arabic isn't that strong at all. May Allah bless you inshallah!!
  10. Hi, I am a girl Thank you for the kind words. I will definitely take your words to heart. I guess all I really needed was something to keep me going and not to lose faith. But, you are totally right. Maybe not now, but maybe I'll get my acceptance next year. I will definitely keep reciting my Duas and inshallah, Allah keeps me on the right path. I wish you the best as well, Thank you!!!
  11. Hello, I am a sister. I understand what you're saying, but if you're not in this field, then you wouldn't understand the determination. It's not just a "noble profession". It's not just helping people and earning a halal income. My dream to be a physician is no different than wanting a spouse, a child, or whatever it is other people may want in life. It is a literal lifestyle, it is who I am. You can't just tell someone "it will be something else". There is no something else for me. Besides Islam, this is the most important thing in my life as it is the only thing that gives me a purpose
  12. To all the other responses, thank you for your input (especially to YoungSkiekh313 for the dua of etiquette post). I appreciate the words of encouragement and may Allah bless all of you.
  13. Hello, thank you for the response (to all who responded). I wasn't expecting this many replies! I know a couple of people have mentioned working towards the dua. I guess the biggest hurdle I'm facing right now is that I am on the waitlist for my medical school. It was a masters linkage program. Get the required grades, get a guaranteed acceptance. I was the only student who had all the requirements (good grades, good test scores, YEARS of extracurricular, killer letter of recs, a good interview, etc). Yet, I was still waitlisted. Almost all my classmates got off the waitlist. I am one of
  14. Hello. I hope you’re all doing well. I’m not really looking for a Dua or a “fix all my problems” prayer, but I would appreciate some insight/advice. My heart feels heavy. My soul is tired. Basically, my main problem is that my duas are never answered. I’ve asked for multiple things throughout my short life, and it never works out in my favor. There was one thing that I asked Allah since I was 16. 7 years later I gave up after no response. Now, there’s something else I really, really, really want. I’ve done every dua - Tawassaul, Mashool, Kumayl, etc (multiple times each) I’ve written countless
