  1. I bought the book weeks ago and received it today ! It will make a fine addition to my religious book collection.
  2. Salaam, I live in South America, Paraguay specifically and as some of you may know, today on Dec 14th 2020 there was an eclipse that occurred really in the south of South America, like in Argentina and Chile. People said that in my city you could supposedly see only a partial eclipse. But I know that even if the eclipse is partial, salatul ayat is still wajib. The problem is, I didn't see anything in particular on the sun and the sky didn't go dark, it's as if the eclipse never happened. The problem is that I saw pictures of the eclipse in my city's newspaper. Here are the pictures:
  3. Salaam, What if it says on the tissue box/bag "100% natural" or ''100% cellulose fibers" ? Am I then allowed to use them for prostration ?
  4. Salaam, I do spend time with my parents, but unfortunately I have no Shia friends, not because I'm not social, but because there's practically no other Shias of my age in the city that I live.
  5. @AStruggler Salaam, I have an app that tells me the times of prayers, so I end up praying 'Asr a few hours before sunset, and 'Isha approximately 1 hour after Maghrib. It would also be my dream to pray salatul-layl. As for the hadith of our beloved Imam Musa (عليه السلام), I find it very beautiful as I just realized I almost do what he says: I spend time of my day meditating (as you can see form my routine), another time studying (I'm studying medicine), another time spending time with my family, but for the part associating with brothers in faith, that's impossible be
  6. @starlight Salaam, thank you for your kind comments. Honestly, there's no feeling of overwhelming, as I have a loooot of free time (with the pandemic, I've basically been all year at home), so I said to myself: "well why not begin listening to duas and perform more recommended actions?". I hope that maybe then Allah will forgive my sins. Wallahi these duas are hidden gems, it's a shame not to read and listen to them. Do try to follow a routine (it doesn't have to be like mine), but do it slowly, don't push yourself (remember, these are all recommended, not obligatory). Small actions
  7. Salaam, I don't know if this is the adequate discussion forum, but I would like to know what is your religious routine ? (Apart from the 5 obligatory prayers and fasting in the month of Ramadan, as we all [supposedly] do that). What else do you do in a regular day, like any recommended actions ? Let's start with me: After I pray salaat al-subh, I listen to dua al-Ahd and then dua al-Sabah. I then may or may not return to sleep. After I wake up, I wear my yaqut (ruby) ring. I pray dhur and 'asr separately since that's more recommended than combined, partially because I'm home al
  8. Salaam, I was praying salaat al subh (aloud since I'm male), and in surat al Fatiha, in the last verse I recited the ghain ( غ ) in a weird way, it didn't sound properly like a true ghain. It was in the last verse: صرط الذين أنعمت عليهم غير المغضوب عليهم ولا الضالين Obviously it wasn't intentional to recite it incorrectly. My question is: should I repeat the salaat ? Should I for next time repeat the verse and recite correctly ? Because I'm reading Sayyid Sistanis rulings and he says: Ruling 983. One must correctly recite qirāʾah of the prayer. If someone cannot in any way
  9. Salaam, I think you're right. As a matter of fact, I actually broke 2 or 3 turbahs during sujood because of the weight I put on them. I'll try to be lighter and hopefully not break any turbahs anymore. Thank you.
  10. Oh Allah ! Do please send your eternal salutations, blessings and mercy upon your most beloved creation: Muhammad al-Mustafa, seal of the prophets and leader of humanity; and upon his holy, pure and immaculate household, for they are the walking and living Qur'an that you have chosen to guide and save us from the Hellfire. Oh Allah, do also send your salutations to all of your serving angels, prophets, messengers and imams, as well as their loyal companions, partisans and followers that sincerely followed them till their last breath. My Lord ! Curse the enemies, opposers and
  11. Salaam, I think I've read that before. My concern was because my parents think it's better not to have that mark since they say I'm still young (20) and a mark like that would harden and blacken my skin, making it unpleasant to look at. But I've began using a turbah again, and will continue to do so if I can, inshallah.
  12. Salaam, The way I say salawat after mentioning the Holy Prophets name is: Sallalahu 3alaihi wa 'alihi wassalam. We should say "wa 'alihi" because I think there was a hadith (I don't remember it) where the Prophet said that when you want to send blessings upon me, then you should also send blessings on my family, otherwise your salawat is incomplete. The thing is, I hear many Shias say "Sallalahu 3alaihi wa 'alihi" and don't say "wassalam". Shouldn't we also say "wassalam" since the Qur'an tell us to, in surah al ahzab, 33:55: إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّب
  13. It's because I've been using a turbah for so long now that a visible mark is starting to appear on my head. So I began praying using paper (since I've been told that paper is made from wood so it's ok to use it) to reduce this mark but I came along with the fatwa of Sayyed Sistani, that's why I'm asking.
