  1. Thanks, everyone. Please continue to pray for the child as often as possible. Thanks.
  2. For everyone going on ziyarat, I have a sick family member that needs your duas. Please pray for this family member. All prayers are appreciated. Thank you.
  3. I do thank Allah for granting me any of my requests, although I know there is always a lot of room to thank him some more. I also want to thank all of you for your prayers.
  4. Sorry guys, this isn't going to be another one of my inflammatory rants. I instead have a prayer request. I have a family member who is sick. I cannot impress upon you the gravity of the situation. All I can do is ask for you to pray. So please, with your most heartfelt of prayers, please pray that Allah makes this family member strong and healthy. (As this MAY be a prolonged illness, I would also request that you continue to pray for this family member repeatedly and indefinitely.) Every time I've asked Shiachatters to pray for something important for me, Allah has granted the request, so I am hopeful here as well. Thank you.
  5. As Muslims, we SHOULD strive to become rich, but for selfless reasons. I agree that money is a tool; it is not inherently evil. It's what you do with the money that makes you good or bad, not just having it. As mentioned above, with money comes power and so much good can be done in the world with power (and resources). Those soup kitchens and hospitals aren't free! The problem is that in the wrong hands, money and power can be dangerous. Public service announcement: Don't strive to become rich and powerful if you're going to misuse it, leave it to the people who have willpower and will use it for good!
  6. You need to know if he is interested and if he is, what kind of timeline he has in mind for marriage; does he want to get married in 2 years? 5 years? If he is not interested, then fine, you can move on. What you cannot do is stay in limbo, waiting for something that may never happen. Ask your parents to set up a meeting with him (and/or to find out what his intentions are exactly).
  7. His father has no motivation/reason to change his name. He isn't the one who converted, his son did!
  8. I'm noticing more and more men who want/expect more out of a woman than they can offer or bring to the table themselves. Ex. if you aren't good-looking, don't reject girls just because they aren't beauty queens. (For a lot of guys in our community, I would recommend investing in a mirror.)
  9. The decision of where you live should not be dictated by your parents. Once you are married, you and your wife can decide where to live. Your parents can have their desires, but ultimately you and your wife have the right to make this decision. Disobeying an unreasonable demand from your parents does not carry the sin that obeying a reasonable request does. Just because they are your parents does not mean you have to do everything they say, they are humans too and will not always tell you exactly what is good for YOU.
  10. Sometimes having a big wedding (to me, like 200-300 guests or more) is the only way to repay social obligations. If the parents of the bride or groom have attended many weddings over the years, they have social obligations to invite the community members (or not be invited in the future to other weddings). So I think big weddings do serve a social purpose that isn't necessarily shallow or unIslamic. If someone invites you, you have to invite them-- the alternative is not having a social life.
