  1. It is important for people to know this rule considering there are many marriages (permanent or temporary) in which intercourse does not, cannot, or is not meant to take place for one or another reason. يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِذَا نَكَحْتُمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنَـٰتِ ثُمَّ طَلَّقْتُمُوهُنَّ مِن قَبْلِ أَن تَمَسُّوهُنَّ فَمَا لَكُمْ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ عِدَّةٍ تَعْتَدُّونَهَاۖ فَمَتِّعُوهُنَّ وَسَرِّحُوهُنَّ سَرَاحًا جَمِيلاً "O you who believe! when you marry the believing women, then divorce them before you touch them, you have in their case no term which you should reckon; so mak
  2. Yes. The responsibility that married life brings with it is immense. It is not easy to fulfill all the duties of married life so easily. Marriage is considered half of religion. Can we expect that this half of religion will be completed without going through any hardships? Presicely because the burden of marriage is so great that one who agrees to bear this burden is considered as having completed half his religion and is also rewarded by Allah with the comforts that married life brings with it. Otherwise, if marriage had not provided any comfort, then completing this half of religion would ha
  3. This question can be reversed: Are women biologically designed to not accept polygamous husbands? If that is the case, then the wives who do accept polygamy for their husbands must be those who sacrifice their own desires and remain patient for the sake of Islam. Their reward will be with Allah for accepting something which is against their nature.
  4. Yes, a lot of things about Kerbala are fabrications and the actual history is quite blurred. We only know some basic facts such as Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) was martyred thirsty, Abbas (عليه السلام) was martyred on the way back from the river, the body of Qasim (عليه السلام) was trampled, an arrow hit the neck of Ali Asghar (عليه السلام). The details are unclear. However, one of these historical facts is that Abbas (عليه السلام) did not participate in battle like the other companions of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). He was not allowed by Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) to use his sword. Do you
  5. Do you accept that Hazrat Abbas (عليه السلام) was able to reach the river, driving away the entire batch (hundreds or thousands) of soldiers stationed at the river bank, even without using his sword? How do you suppose that a man can achieve this seemingly, humanly impossible act? Why were hundreds, if not thousands of heavily armed soldiers, unable to stop a single unarmed man, who was thirsty for 3 days, from reaching the river bank? If we accept this as a historical fact, we have to accept that Abbas (عليه السلام) and his father were able to face entire armies. Actually, facing entire
  6. Even Abbas (عليه السلام) - the son of Ali (عليه السلام) was enough to face the entire enemy of Yezid and destroy it single handedly. That's why Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) never allowed him to fight and took his sword away from him because otherwise the result of the battle would have been much different. Yezid's army itself had the greatest fear of Abbas (عليه السلام). The fact that he was able to reach Furat River pushing away hundreds, if not thousands of Yezidi soldiers, without even using a sword is indicative of his super-human warrior skills. If this is the son, imagine how the father w
  7. My understanding is that visiting a place where a music is being played is not permissible, if you have the option of not visiting. Of course, If we are in a shopping centre where background music is there, that is beyond our own control, but still our ears will hear the sound of music and it may have negative effect on our soul. When one of the imams was impressoned in a very uncomfortable dungeon, he prayed to Allah make it easy for him. He was then transferred to a dungeon which was much more comfortable, but there he could hear the sound of music from outside. He requested to be tran
  8. The surgeon can give numbing medicine so that you won't feel any pain.
  9. In some cases, it is the wife who complains to her husband that he is not protective enough when she is interacting with some non-mehrums. She may say that when other men are around, her husband should be extra cautious in protecting her, because she being a woman may not understand how and when she needs to be careful. She may feel comfortable and secure when her husband guides her about how she needs to carry herself and how she should interact with non-mehrums. Of course, many wives will feel infuriated when their husbands try to be protective, but there are certainly some modest women who
  10. Both Imam Muhammad al-Baqir ((عليه السلام).) and Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) have informed: “There is no man who is not to some extent guilty of fornication. The fornication of the eyes is the evil glance, the kiss is the fornication of lips and touching a non-mahram woman is the fornication of hands.” "So do not claim yourself to be pure; He is most knowing of who fears Him." (53:32)
  11. No, I'm not talking about the stillness which comes after Ruku and before first sajdah. I was talking about the stillness which has to be there before you go into Ruku. Once you finish reading the surahs, there has to be a short pause before you go into Ruku. I think many people miss this because they are not aware of the rule and also it is very easy to miss because many people go into Ruku straight after finishing the surahs. Even I myself was not initially aware of this rule. You stated these: 1. Niyyah 2. takbirat al-iḥram 3. standing before ruku 4. ruku 5.
  12. Yes: Qiyam -> stillness -> Ruku -> stillness -> first sajdah -> stillness -> second sajdah -> stillness -> Qiyam..... The first stillness between Qiyam and Ruku is often missed by people. It voids the prayer if missed.
  13. Yes. I personally believe people who find it beyond their means to get married should at least pray for frequent wet dreams and very reduced testosterone levels. Otherwise, in the absence of frequent nocturnal emissions, they will get the very uncomfortable feeling of retained secretions in the body and will get inclined to remove them manually through forbidden means. Are there any specific duas in this regard? Surprisingly, there are duas which a man can read to reduce the frequency of wet dreams (which is the opposite of what an unmarried person should want). Also, I believe it is perm
  14. Alhumdolillah. I think that is the most ideal situation. You are avoiding sin without going through any difficulty. I believe that every man should be like that. In reality, the lustful gaze is an arrow of the devil which he throws at your eyes. An arrow is meant to cause pain, not give any pleasure. A man who understands the reality of the lustful gaze would take it as a painful, harmful, damaging action rather than getting any pleasure out of it. One of the Imams (عليه السلام) also commented on something similar by saying that when other people look at a glass of wine, they see wine. But whe
