  1. @Abu_Zahra Usually it is for obvious reasons, you have started your life somewhere, or have plans for job or married life, and you just do not see a 13/16/18 month period fit in your agenda.
  2. To me, anything that comes tasty with a fine rice is GOAT : Maqloubeh, Biryani, Ghormeh sabzi, Thai green curry. Also in Lebanon we have the habit to cook dishes in Laban (yogurt) and serve them with rice. I love to eat that from time to time. @Laayla @Diaz do you know Laban Ummo ? I also like grilled meat like entrecote or lamb cutlets.
  3. We should take example from Khojas. At least on that matter Never heard of that Charity Commission, that's an interesting concept lol. UK is not as free as they all say. Here in France, there is this trend of praising the UK because they are so liberal towards hijab, light up Piccadilly during month of Ramadan and so on...
  4. O Allah! Forgive me my such sins as would change divine favours (into disfavours) Imam Sadiq (‘a) has stated that these include the following sins: (1) Inequity against people; (2) Silencing or opposing an Alim; (3) Being ingratitude to Allah's Grace; and (4) Assigning associate to Allah. Imam Sadiq (‘a) has also included the following other sins under this category:- (1) Displaying one's own poverty; (2) Despising Allah's Favour; and (3) Uttering a complaint against Allah. (Anisul Lail) . O Allah! Forgive me my such sins as would hinder my supplication According to Imam Sadiq (‘a), such sins are:- bad faith (mala fide), ceasing to believe in the prayer being answered (granted ), hypocrisy towards brethren, delays in the saying of prayers in time and violation of duties towards the two parents (Uququl Walidain). (Anisul Lail). https://www.al-islam.org/dua-kumayl-translation-commentary-husein-rahim/dua-kumayl-translation-commentary https://www.al-islam.org/articles/reflections-supplication-kumayl-mohammad-ali-shomali FORTY TRADITIONS FROM IMAM MAHDI ((عليه السلام).) 6.And through me shall Allah, the Mighty and Glorious, drive away the calamities from my progeny and my Shia’s". (Bihar, V,52, P.30) 7."Surely, I am indeed the (cause of) security for the inhabitant of the earth". (Bihar, V 53 p181). https://erfan.ir/english/17194.html Imam Mahdi Imam Mahdi ((عليه السلام).) Witness to Our Actions The belief in the Imamat of Ahle Bait ((عليه السلام)) is the basis of all (other) Islamic beliefs and laws. It is on the basis of this belief that one can comprehend the accurate and genuine concept of Tauheed. The real grandeur and magnificence of Prophethood (Nabuwwat) is reflected only in the mirror of this belief. Actions are correctly performed under the guidance of this doctrine and it forms the basis of acceptance of all actions. The one whose heart is devoid of this belief will be in a great loss on the Day of Judgment. Salvation and entry in paradise is restricted to those who subscribe to this belief. However, this belief does not imply that we only believe in the existence of our twelve Imams ((عليه السلام)) and don't consider them as our guides and role models. The very fact that we consider these venerable personalities as our Imams ((عليه السلام)) signifies that we accept them as our guides at every step and tread on their path without any questions. In all facets of our lives- individual or social, commerce issues or complex personal relations, or those dealing with family life and the worship of Allah and gaining His proximity- we should adopt those principles which are enumerated by these honorable personalities as the aim of our life and try to emulate them. This belief also demands that we acknowledge and are convinced that our Imams ((عليه السلام)) are observing our actions and none of our deeds are concealed from them. Witness to our actions Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام)) was asked about the meaning of the following Quranic verse: 'How will be the condition on the day of judgment when We shall bring forth a witness from every nation and We will make you (O Prophet) as a witness upon them.' (Surah Nisa, Verse 41) Imam ((عليه السلام)) replied, 'This verse refers particularly to the nation of the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).a.). In every era an Imam from among us is a witness upon them and the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).a.) is a witness upon us.' (Al-Kafi, vol. 1, p.190, tradition http://www.shiastudy.ir/en/shia-history/imam-mahdi/imam-mahdi-a-s-witness-to-our-actions https://www.imamreza.net/old/eng/imamreza.php?id=4829 No need to post that much brother, we agree that Prophet (sawas) was teaching people correct things. هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولاً مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ
  5. جمعة مباركة What you provided here is nothing more than a pure du`a or dhikr to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) As taught by Nabi (sawas) himself. May we all follow that blessed path, amin
  6. Great job @Haji 2003 you've just taught everyone how to do even more unreadable infinite posts, without having to do the copy paste job.
  7. You cannot even understand the issue is not about Ya, but about Madad. What to expect from such a discussion, really...
  8. Come on, you have been schooled by Abu Zahra 3 pages before on how foolish your qiyas is. What matters is the ENDS, not the WAY. You obviously do not read Qur'an properly if you are limiting the word 'Sunna' to a set of habits by Prophets, A'imma, or human beings. A sunna is a way, point blank. You always accuse people of 'dodging' your stupid analogies. Dear brother, I think it is now time to question your ways and the relevance of your arguments. We answer but you keep coming up with silly concepts. Live your life. Hope you know where your boundaries are. Is it allowed to say 'Ya Ali Madad' Is it allowed to say 'Ya Fatima Ma`soomeh Madad'? Is it allowed to say 'Ya Shah Cheragh Madad'? Is it allowed to say 'Ya shahid sayid Mohammad Baqir al Sadr Madad'? Is it allowed to say 'Ya Sayid al Sistani Madad? ' All of them are alive after all ! So they all can help you and ask Allah for your salvation. Have the best in your life brother, but understand you seriously need to question yourself.
  9. @Ethics Please read and understand Qur'an. You are the one playing pick and choose, mixing concepts and using the tiniest allusion to what fits your concept of istighata (a shirt, Moses & Harun, etc) to justify practices that the Qur'an does not prohibit clearly, rather than sticking to a sunnah that is explicitly given throughout the whole book. Do what you like, brother. But you are not doing what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) prescribed, neither what the Prophet (sawas) did. Not saying you are into shirk, but at least do not embark people on that way, even if modern scholars on pulpits are doing it. Discussion with you is of no use, as far as I am concerned. @Cool Should be clear we agree once again.
  10. People ask 'Would you ask Allah to cure you and not go to a doctor ?' Well my dear I know I for sure the doctor will have effective treatment, so of course I go to him, but I rely on Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) alone for the cure to be efficient. Such an earthly system was set up by Allah, where you need to turn to those who are able to help you : alms (well off people), cure (doctor) , sexual needs (spouse) , etc. There is concrete action on the earthly realm. You cannot say 'Istighatha of a doctor is same as istighatha of Oum al banin'. Logic please. When you do istighatha of A'immah, you are asking them in the name of their High Divine status so they ask Allah. This cannot be compared to a doctor, who even as an atheist may bring you earthly cure. So you need to admit that the action or effect of A'immah will be equal to none since the final solution is between Allah in the end. You only take istighatha as a 'booster' for your du`as, like Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)is limited in bounty. While in the other way, when I am asking Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to grant me this or that for the sake of His beloved A'immah (a), l give Allah His full status by asking Him directly as He ordered, do not belittle His Bounty, and still pay my respect and keep my love of Ahl el Beit (a) alive. That will be my last message on this topic. Live and let live.
  11. That's right, but in the case where beforehand you would also have asked Allah to help you. Something in the lines of 'Ya Allah help me get my sustenance today, even if I have to ask money from someone'. Agreed that debate is closed here.
  12. See, that's when it gets interesting. 'Your' way : Ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to get help from Ali (عليه السلام) Ask Ali to get help from Allah Ali asks Allah (?) Allah is the one who gives you help eventually 'My' way : Ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to help you by the haq/love/whatever of Ali (عليه السلام) Allah helps you.
