  1. This is really sad. They (unintentionally) took revenge against their own people (mostly). Plus partially blamed it on the flights sudden change in trajectory towards a sensitive military center.
  2. Thats a good point, my family and I are Indian/Pakistani but we are immensely more comfortable visiting an Arab center here (the IIA). Guess we are renegades?, lol. There is only one Indian/Pakistani center here but it unfortunately feels more like a socializing hub without much spiritual upliftment. Just my experience.

  7. (Bismillah) Salam Alaikom, The Islamic Institute of America has started a hawza program in the English language. I’ve started attending it and wish I had this opportunity earlier!! It is absolutely amazing! The insight and deeper understanding of Islam makes one enjoy this existence in ways that are indescribable! The subjects currently being taught are Usul ul fiqh, ilmul hadith, Arabic grammar, public speaking, Quranic sciences, usul al-kaafi ,biography of Prophet (sawaws) and Islamic laws. The main teacher is sayed Mohammad Baqir al Qazwini, may Allah reward him immensely for his efforts! Allahumma salle ala Muhammad wa Aal e Muhammad wa ajjil farajahum

  10. For anyone who wants to know the REAL reason for the ban, here it is: the country just got hijacked: People seem to be missing the point entirely on this issue. Trump's action was not about 'banning muslims" - it never was. Look a little deeper below the surface of what has just occurred and consider this. The 'muslim ban' issue is a smokescreen. What this was about was testing the waters to create public chaos and bring about opposition from the supreme court, and to see if DHS could then override a supreme court order and get away with it without any public outcry. And they got away with it. And here people are actually even defending this action. That is why they used muslims and the ever-popular threat of terrorism, because they knew the people would support it, and now a legal precedent has been set. DHS now has both 'legal' and public approval to override the supreme court on any domestic issue and the new attorney general will support it. Think about that, because that means any rights you have... and yes, if you are an American, that means YOU. And the people supported it. Trump's action is not about travel bans, it never was. They just used muslims to get public approval for the action. What it was about was setting a legal precedent whereby DHS can now override the supreme court... The people of the United States just lost any rights the DHS decides they dont have, and they now have no legal system to fall back on because the supreme court is now subservient to the DHS - when last week it was the other way around like its supposed to be. And Trump did it after sacking the heads of almost all departments, while there was quite literally only a skeleton staff at the White House - and certainly no one there who could oppose his actions. Neat trick huh? Look at history. Overriding and gaining control of the court system is the first step in any coup de'tat... this is exactly the way they played it in Germany, in Italy, Spain, Egypt, Panama... and anywhere else you care to name.... Think it cant happen in America? Think again...The really interesting thing though, is that so many people are approving of it.
  11. (Salam) I went for the Friday prayer too at the ICOFA and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. The sheikh in his sermon advised to exercise restraint towards the protesters or else I was all ready for a fight, lol.
  12. On a related note, lottery is halal as per Ayt. Sayyid Hakeem: Q [1] There is a national lottery held in our country, run by a company. Tickets are sold for a very low price, and the winners receive prizes. The company also gives some of their income in the sale of the tickets to certain charitable projects. Is a Muslim permitted to purchase such a ticket with the intention of winning the prize, and if he intends to give a part of the prize to an Islamic charity project? Apparently the said transaction is permissible, and it is not considered to be prohibited gambling. The deal here is merely selling a ticket for a low price with the condition that if the chosen numbers match the company’s randomly selected numbers the participant wins the prize. One becomes deserving of the prize due to fulfilling a condition included in the sale deal, so it is permissible to claim the prize. It is not obligatory to spend the money in the way intended, although it is better to do so. Q [2] Is it allowed to play state-sponsored lottery in which you buy ticket of two Euros, and if you are lucky you can win millions. Is that money lawful or not? It is permissible to purchase state-sponsored lottery tickets, but the prize should be collected on behalf of the Marja. Q [3] It is has been mentioned on your website that it is allowed to play state-sponsored lottery, but the prize should be collected on behalf of the religious authority (the Marja). How do we collect the prize on behalf of the Marja? If a believer receives money that is taken from a government organization, and it is known that the money had once belonged to a Muslim, it is still regarded as being owned by him. One can take this money by intending to take it on behalf of the Marja, and then he can assume ownership of it. It is better to help the needy believers with some part of it. Q [4] I own a store where lottery tickets are sold, and I receive a certain profit on each ticket sold. Is this permissible for me? The transaction of the commonly-known lottery is based on purchasing a paper ticket confirming certain numbers he has chosen, and as a result he is entered into a lottery draw. If the chosen numbers match the numbers randomly drawn, they win the prize. Such a transaction is permissible, and selling the tickets of such a lottery is permissible. http://english.alhakeem.com/pages/quesans/listgroup_ques.php?Where=134
