  1. This is incorrect. 'Ida is necessary only if there was intercourse.
  2. According to narrations, in marriage, permanent and temporary, when you have the option to choose, you should choose a Muslim woman over non-muslim, and a Mu'min woman over muslim. In other words, if you have the choice, choose a woman that has more faith in her heart.
  3. You either didn't read the question carefully or you didn't read the links you posted carefully. Here's what Sistani says: (Your very first link) آیا بدون نردیکی کردن باز هم باید زن عده نگه دارد ؟ پاسخ: لازم نیست .
  4. سلام No need for 'ida. No specific process. Just the typical requirements for permanent marriage. No. (But do double-check this.)
  5. I wonder if the translation could be revised to be more precise. I do not think that فَإِذَا رَقَقْتَ translates into "(when you) feel like weeping". A more precise translation could have different implications. The letter فَ before فَتَذَكَّرْهُمْ and فَإِذَا رَقَقْتَ and فَابْكِ could be indicative of a causal chain. "When you remember them" → "When you're tender or softened" → "When you cry" ... Implications: Thinking of your beloved deceased family members causes your heart (you) to become tender or softened which in turn causes you to shed tears. Going ba
  6. One value I see in meditation practices, as in emptying the mind, is learning how to control the flow of thoughts in and out of your mind, and learning how to not react to every passing thought. This may help us to have the right thoughts, when our minds are full of tafakkur. This is just my opinion though. Thank you for checking the sanad.
  7. This is obviously not true, considering how our Imams (عليه السلام), our prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), and many other holy men were in polygamous marriages.
  8. No. This is not the case. Men are designed to worship Allah. Under some circumstances polygamy is more helpful to reach that goal, and under other circumstances monogamy is more helpful. If within a certain context polygamy results in the breakdown of the family, which ruins the future of the children in that family, and brings unnecessary hardship to people involved, then clearly in that context polygamy would take individuals farther away from Allah. So, a more proper question to ask is, "in the context I live in, would it be polygamy or monogamy that would bring me closer t
  9. Salam, Interestingly, this statement contradicts most (non-islamic) meditation practices, which aim to empty the mind of all thoughts during silent meditations. (Note: I do not know the grading of any of the narrations in this thread.)
  10. سلام علیکم brother @Qa'im, Excellent post, as always. May I ask questions in this thread, as I go through the narrations and their translations? First, have these narrations been graded regarding their authenticity? Second, in the very first narration, may I ask about the section that I posted here? Why was الاولين translated as "prophets"? Thank you!
  11. That could be one aspect of it. What I find fascinating is how specific body movements are associated with supplications. It appears that spoken (audible) words may not be sufficient. They need to be accompanied by specific positions or movements of hands, arms, and/or fingers. I wonder, for example, why pleading with palms up is better than with palms down? What role do our hands and fingers play in getting our duas heard and answered? What if I raise and move other fingers, such as pinky or thumb, as I supplicate? Would that be "bad" or would it not matter? These narrations
  12. These are very interesting narrations. I have no idea how to properly understand them. Also, it's not clear what Al-Tadarru is. There seems to be two different descriptions for it.
  13. We ought to properly analyse the following Mawththaq narration: 1. In the past, in a more ideal context, the women who did contract Muta'a were faithful. They were not "the bad one", they didn't have low moral standards, they were faithful. 2. Today, in a less ideal context, women who are less or not faithful are contracting Muta'a. So: A) It's permissible to contract Muta'a with non-faithful women. B) Ideally, it's better to contract Muta'a with faithful women. Women with higher morals are more recommended for Muta'a. And this has been corroborated by
  14. @Mahdavist That's a great insight, too. Qalb (قلب) is "a thing that turns". As it turns our moods, emotions, and spirituality moves with it, too. Our good deeds, including duas, "tame" and "settle" our hearts (قلوب) on God's deen. Through our good deeds, we get control, to a certain degree, of our hearts. Consequently, we bring our spiritual highs and lows under our control. یا الله و یا رحمن و یا مقلب القلوب، ثبت قلبنا علی دینک
  15. عَنْهُ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ حُسَيْنِ بْنِ الْمُخْتَارِ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ إِذَا رَقَّ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَدْعُ فَإِنَّ الْقَلْبَ لا يَرِقُّ حَتَّى يَخْلُصَ. I think there's something very subtle, yet very informative, hidden, in this narration. Please correct me, if I'm wrong. Hidden wisdom #1: رَقَّ (with an á accent on ر) could be interpreted as "feeling compassion" or "becoming soft." رِقُّ (with an i accent on ر) could be referring to "servitude" or "the condition of being/becoming a slave
