  1. Can anyone post Sayed Sistani's rulings on praying behind Sunnis, or a link to them? (i.e. what to do whilst praying behind a Sunni Imam). Had a look on najaf.org, but didn't find anything, but think I've seen them somewhere before. Thanks.
  2. I'm fairly sure Qadha can only be done after. Also, it is a sin to deliberately not pray on time, no (without justifiable reason)?
  3. MashaAllah, you have a great desire to learn. You may get some answers here, but I would recommend that, particularly for the ones regarding your job and the loss of your friend (my condolences - perhaps you could start a separate thread asking people to recite Fatiha?), you should talk directly to a Sheikh if possible?
  4. "Caps" means you are shouting, and is not appreciated by people. It is also more difficult to read.
  5. Haram to eat food prepared by non-Ahlul Kitab? Only if they touch the food with wet hands, right?
  6. I did feel tricked when I found out Santa wasn't real. It's wholly unnecessary to dupe children. When they eventually find out, they may well feel disappointed. We shouldn't lie to our kids.
  7. Thank you very much to the link to his lectures - I only made it to a few of them, and they were top quality. Recommend all who can to watch them and attend the upcoming sessions.
  8. From Sayed Sistani's website, on choosing a marja, found here, under "Dialogue on following a jurist": "You may ask a committed Muslim who is known to be of impeccable character, trustworthy, just, knowledgeable and expert in knowing the scientific level of people in a particular discipline. Popularity of the jurist which sets him in a different league from his peers, so much so that this leads to certainty as regards his juridical prowess and knowledge, is another avenue." There may be other 'conditions' out there on how to follow someone; I was under the impression that one should ask two pe
  9. It's nothing to do with Hezbollah. Anyone promising you a 40% annual return should be viewed with an eye of scepticism. I sympathise with the people and, considering the man appeared pious can to a degree see why they gave a lot away, but it pays to not be naive.
  10. Salaams, I usually keep out of these topics as I have no knowledge to confer, but I will share my personal experience on this issue. I had gone to Hyderi on Sunday evening and they announced towards the end that the Imam Ali (as) Foundation had issued a statement, which they promptly put up on the screen and read out, typical of the great organisation shown by the Khoja community. After the duas for the eve of Eid, I got home and discovered that Stanmore had announced otherwise, so I watched the video on their website, transcribed by Sheikh Shabbir, I think in the first post of this topic. I w
  11. I'd like this clarified. I am under the impression that, as with anything najis, you would just need to wash the najis part of you and that it wouldn't break any wudhu that you have. Say, for example, you have wudhu but then change a baby's nappy and get urine on your hand, if you wash your hand, you wouldn't break your wudhu. Ofcourse, wudhu can be broken, but I don't think it is merely broken by touching najasat.
  12. Smiling even when sad can actually make you happy.
