  1. Sura 12 - Ayat 100 وَرَفَعَ أَبَوَيْهِ عَلَى ٱلْعَرْشِ وَخَرُّواْ لَهُۥ سُجَّدًا‌ۖ وَقَالَ يَـٰٓأَبَتِ هَـٰذَا تَأْوِيلُ رُءْيَـٰىَ مِن قَبْلُ قَدْ جَعَلَهَا رَبِّى حَقًّا‌ۖ وَقَدْ أَحْسَنَ بِىٓ إِذْ أَخْرَجَنِى مِنَ ٱلسِّجْنِ وَجَآءَ بِكُم مِّنَ ٱلْبَدْوِ مِنۢ بَعْدِ أَن نَّزَغَ ٱلشَّيْطَـٰنُ بَيْنِى وَبَيْنَ إِخْوَتِىٓ‌ۚ إِنَّ رَبِّى لَطِيفٌ لِّمَا يَشَآءُ‌ۚ إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلْعَلِيمُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ And he seated his parents on the throne, and they all prostrated before him; and Yusuf said, “O my father! This is the interpretation of my former dream; my Lord has made it true; and indee
  2. This may be one of his miracles. If he read 1000 rakaats, that doesn't mean he was reading them extremely fast. I think he may have read these 1000 rakaats with great calmness and grace, with even having time to spare at the end before fajar. We are not able to do this, but the imams (عليه السلام) had this ability. It may be similar to an event when the Prophet(s) was on a journey maybe and had a very short supply of food or water and people were worried what they would do. But they all ate/drank from the same utensil and everyone had their share but there was still some food/water left at the
  3. Sometimes due to poverty, unmarried men are not able to even arrange this basic requirement where they can have their own room where they can close the door. For example, many unmarried men share a single room with other family members. Other times, the man has no house of his own and lives in a single-room apartment which he shares with several other unrelated room-mates. Even Imam Ali as. could not start living with lady Fatima (عليه السلام) until he was able to arrange a separate house and that took some months. So, there are people in this world who cannot get married
  4. There are other duas which are relatively long too, though not as long as Al Jawshan Al Kabeer.
  5. Before starting any work, one should read this dua.
  6. Allah describes His light himself: -------- Excerpt from Dua Al-Jawshan-Al-Kabeer: O Light of Lights O Illuminator of light O Creator of light O Planner of light O Estimator of light O Light of all lights O Light that precedes in existence all light O Light that will survive all lights O Light that is above all lights O Light like of which there is no light Position: 33.26 ------- Quran: Sura 24 - Ayat 35 "Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth; the example of His light is l
  7. Or you could be married but not live in the same house, or same city or even same country. This is more difficult than being unmarried, but sometimes people have to be in these situations for extended periods.
  8. Sura 55 - Ayat 56-60 فِيهِنَّ قَـٰصِرَٲتُ ٱلطَّرْفِ لَمْ يَطْمِثْهُنَّ إِنسٌ قَبْلَهُمْ وَلَا جَآنٌّ Wherein both will be those (maidens) restraining their glances upon their husbands, whom no man or jinn has touched before them. فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? كَأَنَّهُنَّ ٱلْيَاقُوتُ وَٱلْمَرْجَانُ (In beauty) they are like rubies and coral. فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?
  9. Truly surprising how very easy it is for some men to do mutah. I guess It comes down to one's location in this big world. In liberal western societies, mutah may be as simple as that - just speaking a few lines. But in very conservative parts of the world, mutah is an absolute impossibility and completely unavailable, with no chance at all whatsoever. In fact, it is a blessing that even finding any haram relationship in such areas is often next to impossible. People are thus very sexually deprived because they neither have any halal means, nor can they find haram relationships to ful
  10. Actually what you have said is exactly what I feel. I couldn't have said it in a better way. I am completely in agreement with you. To be honest, my post was a deliberate over-simplication. I actually wanted someone to come forward and reply to me like the way you have replied eloquently. Unmarried people are constantly being advised from different people, forums, scholars etc to get married, or otherwise they will fall into sin. There are hundreds of topics on this forum which promote early marriages / mutah as a means to protect against sin. The idea that many unmarried people ca
  11. I understand your point of view and agree with it in a way. However, there is a different way to look at it, from the Islamic point of view: In Islamic law there is a rule that marriage is recommended, but it becomes obligatory if a person fears that there is risk of falling into sin. From this we can deduce that there are some people who are unmarried but still....not only do they not commit any sexual sins, they even dont have any fear that they will commit any sexual sin. If it had been impossible for such a person to exist, then marriage would have been obligatory for eve
  12. Found this: "The Holy Prophet (S), when eating used to sit in a position of Tashahhud during prayer." https://www.al-islam.org/greater-sins-volume-3-ayatullah-sayyid-abdul-husayn-dastghaib-shirazi/thirty-third-greater-sin-pride
  13. Ok, how do we then explain the following: Ruling 2010. If before sunset a child becomes bāligh, or an insane person becomes sane, or a poor person becomes rich, and if that person meets the conditions that make it obligatory on one to give fiṭrah, he must give fiṭrah. https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2291/
  14. Permissible but disliked. It is makrooh to engage in sexual acts other than intercourse during fasting.
  15. This is a good question and can be asked in a different way: A young man is unmarried and has tried to get married or do mutah but it hasn't been possible yet. He tries very hard to avoid sins and this is extremely difficult for him. He puts in remarkable effort and shows almost super-human patience and self-control, and so he is able to avoid most sexual sins almost all the time. But very rarely, he still does end up committing some sin, like a short lustful gaze, which he always repents later on and asks Allah for forgiveness. On the other hand is a man who is married and his des
