  1. You may find this playlist interesting.
  2. Dear Haji, may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you for raising the topic of zakat. No wonder no one replied yet, I personally see zakat as a very sensitive topic. It may refer, as you remarkably put it, to some nafsi dimension (the spirit). Like here (91:6) وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّاهَا ﴿٧﴾ فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا ﴿٨﴾ قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا I do not recall reading zakat in a context of alms to the poor rather I always saw it coming after the issue of salah or taqwa, always spiritual related and non material. Interestingly enough, a verse which is kind of precise regarding alms on crops does not mention the word zakat (7:156) وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنشَأَ جَنَّاتٍ مَّعْرُوشَاتٍ وَغَيْرَ مَعْرُوشَاتٍ وَالنَّخْلَ وَالزَّرْعَ مُخْتَلِفًا أُكُلُهُ وَالزَّيْتُونَ وَالرُّمَّانَ مُتَشَابِهًا وَغَيْرَ مُتَشَابِهٍ ۚ كُلُوا مِن ثَمَرِهِ إِذَا أَثْمَرَ وَآتُوا حَقَّهُ يَوْمَ حَصَادِهِ ۖ وَلَا تُسْرِفُوا ۚ إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِينَ ١٤١﴾ Similarly, the verse of Khums is explicitly linked to wealth. (8:141) وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا غَنِمْتُم مِّن شَيْءٍ فَأَنَّ لِلَّـهِ خُمُسَهُ وَلِلرَّسُولِ وَلِذِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ إِن كُنتُمْ آمَنتُم بِاللَّـهِ وَمَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَىٰ عَبْدِنَا يَوْمَ الْفُرْقَانِ يَوْمَ الْتَقَى الْجَمْعَانِ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴿٤١﴾دْ
  3. Unless talking about owning slaves, and not even sure this is the correct word, this is ghuluw, shirk, and not from Imam Ali. Please read his munajat.
  4. Football. By this I mean soccer. Any sport as soon as it becomes an attraction.
  5. Managed to build a stable professional situation - Was jobless as of january 2010. Got progressively away from bad habits and environments. Got married and had three kids. Got more spiritual : got closer to Qur'an, made ziyarats. All of these are bounties from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and I accomplished nothing
  6. But doesn't Dua Jawshan al kabir contain much more than 99 names ? Why the 99 number ?
  7. Same here. I also find Seyed Javad Zabihi's recitations very touchind.
  8. What... 6 years ? Good luck. Won't be an easy wait.
  9. What is unity except friendship, solidarity in times of hardship, respect and good behaviour ? All things a Muslim should be preaching without questioning.
  10. On my last trip, I could have prayed standing at my seat, but I felt the look of other passengers would have me distracted, I also feared falling into riya. So I prayed seated.
