  1. Salaams, Given that "Allah is the Creator of everything", "who made good everything that He created", why does Allah say that "whatever of ill befalls you, it is from yourself"? If we say the 'self' is intrinsically good, as a creation of God, why can it become evil? Any and all thoughts would be much appreciated.
  2. Salaams dear brother, Here I would just ask what is our incentive exactly to reach perfection or complete purification? Thank you very much for your reply.
  3. Salaams, Given that there are no negative emotions in heaven, what is the incentive for us to do anything more than what will scrape us into the first level? Once there, we will feel no regret or longing for the things that those in higher levels will have and thus will be at no disadvantage despite our fewer good deeds / more bad deeds... Any thoughts of yours would be much appreciated. Duas to all.
  4. Dear Rejector, Thank you very much for your response, and I apologise for my lackadaisical reading. May Allah bless you just the same dear brother, and give you the best of both worlds, amen.
  5. Salaams, Apparently, this phrase: "What has He who loses You gained, and what has he who gains You lost? Indeed one who is pleased with other than You in exchange is at loss" is in Dua Arafah of Imam Hussain. However, having gone through the whole supplication, I cannot find the aforementioned excerpt. Could someone please indicate whether it is my foolish reading or a mistake in the reference of the hadith? Duas for all.
  6. Salaams Rejector, @-Rejector- Upon research, I found this hadith in Sahih ul Bukhari first... Just so that I can have an unequivocally Shia hadith on the matter, perhaps for explaining and reference to some hardcore Shia friends, do you, or any dear readers, have any other hadiths on the vast extent of God's mercy? Peace and duas.
  7. Yes, ofc it wouldn't mean every Shi'i rebellion / flag before the Qa'im is batil, but obviously those during his occultation period. And, although Nafs al-Zakiyya will indeed rise before al Qa'im does, he will rise under the shade of his flag after all, negating any possibility for 'inanity' in the use of this hadith. I haven't seen any mufassireen's verdict to say that this refers to the false claimants of Mahdihood in particular, so please do direct me to where I can find out more about their interpretations.
  8. I recall a tradition from Imam Baqir (عليه السلام) in which he said that "every flag raised before the flag of Al-Qaim (عليه السلام) is taghut"; therefore, perhaps we should be asking instead which world leaders are least on the batil ...
  9. Wow... This was surprisingly profound. Thank you for your response dear brother.
  10. Salaams all, At 00:54 of the following clip Agha Panahian mentions that this is a hadith of the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام).: بالايمان يرققى الى نرقة السعاذؤ و يهايؤ الحبور. Just 2 things: could someone please translate this for me as Google is being funny, and second, kindly let me know if they have the reference for this hadith, as I know Imam Baqir (عليه السلام). has also said "When Allah loves His slave He drowns him in the sea of suffering", contrary to "religion means contentment" Thank you, and please keep me in your duas.
  11. Salaams, I came across an image of a quote from Imam Ali ((عليه السلام).) in which he says that "Allah is more merciful to you then you are to yourselves". Does anyone know if this tradition is authentic and/or its reference? Thank you for any and all replies!
  12. Thank you very much for your answer; that seems to give a very reasonable set of events to which I can test any music to.
  13. Hi all, Thank you for your various replies. All my reading and research has led me to one simple conclusion: in sum, if it is "suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings", it is haram. That's what all my reading has yielded to. Now, that just leaves the question: what comprises entertainment and amusement gatherings? Campfires? School plays? Eid get-togethers? If someone could share their views on what entertainment and amusement gatherings actually entail, I would be very grateful as otherwise, there is an amusement gathering fit for every type of music. Salaams and duas.
  14. Salaams khizarr, Thank you very much for taking the time to send me a reply. For me LoFi, instead of drawing me into the pleasures of the world, helps me to accept life's difficulties and get tough work and other unsavoury tasks done, whilst staying calm. In terms of acceptability according to Sistani's standards, the only way I can think that it contravenes is because of the beat, yet famous nasheeds (such as Salam Farmande) also have a beat in the background...
  15. Salaams all, Given that Sistani's definition of haram music is those with "a tune used in the entertainment and amusement gatherings or that it is similar to the tunes used therein", would you categorise LoFi as halal or haram? Thank you for any and all replies!
