  1. I think there is a confusion between Alawism and Alevism here.
  2. I am curious, you have a western name, how did you end up being alawi ?
  3. Btw @Muntazir e Mahdi you got me going to the shop, just bought a plate of dates from Madina, they're called Safawi. Quite cheap, hope they'll taste good unlike brother @Ali_Hussain said.
  4. I don't find the Iranian ones to be so cheap, at least not as Algerian or Tunisian ones. Here a box of 500g of Mozafati is about 4€ whereas for North African ones you would get 1kg. What's annoying is that merchants do not always keep them refrigerated as they should, which creates some kind of crystal from the sugar in them.
  5. Iranian Mozafati and Jordan/Palestinian Mejhoul (also cultivated in California) are my favorites.
  6. It is true that Iran seems absent of the Afghan front, sadly. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help out Afghan brothers, ease their pain and punish their oppressors.
  7. I think this comes from soon after the 'revolution'. I think I remember in its longer version, you see someone -probably a MP- being interrupted vehemently in his speech by a group shouting 'time for salat' to which he replied 'I combined my prayers before coming here since it is allowed, you also could have done so', and he was booed afterwards. I suppose this scholar intervened to prove him right and restore quietness in the majlis.
  8. Just wanted to share with you this beautiful recitation of du`a Jawshan al kabir, from Madagascar last year.
  9. By ignorant I meant laymen, not versed in science.
  10. Dear ... Please explain how these leave room for several most learned people, since themselves should be able to determine whether another is most learned instead of them. It's not like every Marja` has its own specificity that made them say 'Ok I need to become an alternative to Ayatollah Fulan'. It's more about them being recognised as trustworthy by their peers, and thus granted a title which allows them to pretend to the title of most learned, that laymen (ignorant) are allowed to follow. Based on this, in our tradition, it is allowed to follow someone you consider t
  11. After all these years, I am still trying to understand how an ignorant person should determine who the most learned is, and be comfortable with such an idea.
  12. Given that there are five separate times, each with a purpose otherwise Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) would have given three, we can agree that five times was the initial sunna. However, since combining was also a practice of our Nabi (sawas) and validated by Aimmah (sawas), this became our norm. Asr timings are the same if I rely on my prayer app.
  13. Thanks brother, that's also what I supposed.
  14. True, that was my understanding. Yet there is an issue with 354 or 355 days of the year. Since shape and rotation are, as you said, unchangeable, then how come we come to only one day of discrepancy from year to year ? It's like admitting 6 months of 29 day and 6 months of 30 days (174+180=354). If all moons are visible at 30 days then that would make a 360-day-year right?
