  1. Yes, but the person in question here hasn't said that he will stop trying. He actually said.... Only Allah knows how much effort a person has put in to get married and we have no right to judge others by claiming that their effort is deficient. It can be very disappointing for a person to be told that his lack of marriage is because of his own fault particularly when he has tried his best and utilised all his resources and done whatever he could to get married, but is still unmarried, not because of his own fault, but because of reasons beyond his own control. Allah himself has m
  2. Are these the only 3 reasons why a person cannot get married despite his efforts to get married? Isn't it possible that a person utilises the right resources, has normal standards and has also evaluated himself correctly, but he is still unable to find a spouse? Marriage is in Allah's hands and only He can judge when He will allow a person to get married. A person should make the effort and have hope in Allah, but ultimately it will be Allah who decides how much a man would have to wait before he is able to get married. Is there a guarantee that a if a person tries his level best, he wil
  3. If someone reads Asr prayer and then remembers he hasn't yet read Zuhur, is his Asr valid or will he have to read it again after first reading Zuhur?
  4. True. Yet at the same time Prophet (s) never married any other woman as long as Khadija (عليه السلام) remained alive. Likewise, Imam Ali (عليه السلام) didn't get a second wife as long as Fatima (عليه السلام) remained alive. Given that multiple marriages is mustahib, the Prophet and the Imam preferring to have single wives for a considerable period of time indicates there can be great wisdom in choosing to have only one wife, especially when that wife is the one you will love the most.
  5. I have heard that people in heaven will not have private parts. Although there will be sexual intercourse, it is not what we consider it to be in this world. Because people will not/can not have genitals in junnah, so maybe that's one factor involved in why Adam (عليه السلام) had to leave Junnah and come to this earth, where the shameful part of the body is exposed to the outside of the bodies. I have no reference for this and this could be wrong.
  6. Yes, can't be like that. But I find it strange how it has, infact must be, like that for a man who has more than 1 wives. He has to learn to switch off wife 1, switch on wife 2, then switch off wife 2 and return to wife 1. How does a man emotionally juggle between wives at the same time? How is a man capable of establishing multiple marital relationships and take them all together at the same time? How emotionally challenging or emotionally difficult can it be for a man to create a bond between himself and more than one wives simultaneously? Usually it is women who raise this question fr
  7. I went to Kufa and our guide there took us to a place which he said was the house of imam Ali (عليه السلام). He showed us around and said that this house has no toilets, which he claimed shows that the Ahlul-Bait are pure and did not need to pass stool or urine. I don't believe him, but if Allah has removed all impurities from Ahlul-Bait, does that imply that their urination and defecation are not impurities for them? Or did they really never needed to use toilets because that is impurity. I have heard Lady Fatima (عليه السلام) did not menstruate, but the Prophet (s) did allow the door o
  8. Ruling 941. When saying takbīrat al-iḥrām of the prayer and the takbīrs during the prayer, it is recommended for one to raise his hands up to his ears. https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2220/ If it goes against the actions of Prophet (s) and the imams (عليه السلام), yes, it can be thrown against the wall, as ordered by the Prophet (s) himself.
  9. I think we have no knowledge about this. Maybe if we had the opportunity to ask this question to God directly, He might reply as He replied to Adam (as): "Due to the weakness of your nature you made an effort to give an opinion about that of which you have no knowledge."
  10. Al Kafi-The Book of Belief and Disbelief H 1449, CH 1c, h 2 Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Hassan ibn Mahbub from Hisham ibn Salim from Habib al-Sajistani who has said the following... http://www.holybooks.com/al-kafi-shia-divine-text/
  11. I think it is better for us to not form any opinion about what choices God has/had, because these matters are neither our concern nor can we understand the secrets of Allah and His plans and how He implements his choices. Our knowledge is too deficient and weak to comprehend divine mysteries. We cannot ask God if he could have not wanted to create us. But he will ask everyone of us about what we did in our lives. So that should be what we need to focus on. Imam Jaffar as Sadiq (عليه السلام) said: There was a time when Allah, the Majestic, the Glorious, took the descendents o
  12. I don't think that for Shias there is any time in which no prayer should be offered. I think that is only a Sunni thing because they forbid prayer just before sunrise. Can anyone clarify? Thanks.
  13. Intimacy with wife hoyi ya Nahi? In any case, wapis ja Ker tawaf un nisa kerna ho ga before having intimacy. Ager wapis nahi ja saktay, tu kisi dosray banday ko apni jagah bhaijna ho ga, before having intimacy. But please confirm this : https://www.sistani.org/english/book/47/2110/
  14. I believe there is a hadith from the imams (عليه السلام) something on the lines that men should be gentle and caring to their wives because they are in their bondage. So if a woman has herself initially agreed to go into the bondage of a man, then she cannot come out of that bondage easily unless the husband agrees. Of course, in certain instances the marriage itself becomes null and void and the woman is automatically out of the bondage without having to make any effort to come out of it.
