  1. For Urdu speakers, I had listened to a majlis online last week and the Maulana narrated a waqiya of a male person who had questioned the Meraj of the prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), and then the event that took place with that person the following day in order to show to the person how the meraj was possible too. If you can listen to this 2 min clip on youtube starting at 1:38:40 and listened to it for 3 minutes, then if you are familiar with this waqiya, can you please share any sources/references to it ? Is it authentic ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh4c_MHju2o&feature=
  2. I think it has been a different experience for different peoples depending on their family dynamics and overall relationship among each other. Our family for example bonded more together. I got to spend more time with my kids, understand them better as well as connect more with my wife and over all alhumdulillah our family as a whole have fared well mashallah. I think not having to deal with a lot of external toxic environment gave us peace of mind and added more patience and calmness to our lives. I think overall if your relationship is well then you're doing well, but if there is sour rela
  3. Assalam-o-alaikum. I was curious if anyone here has listened to these audio episodes in Urdu? And what they thought? It's based on a true story of an Irani soldier who had died for 3 minutes then came back to life. The story Chronicles his experience of that 3 minutes when he had stepped into the Barzakh realm. This was really an eye opener for me and a must listen to for everyone specially for the youth. Probably something one should listen to as a constant reminder whenever drifting away from Iman. Very good audio book and I hope it soon will be available in english as well but for now it
  4. Beautiful response and advice. I could not have said it better. I second the fact that this person is not alone in going through this ordeal and it is true and quite often the norms in many cultures that the parents way of conveying their care and concern comes out much harsher in the way they express it. So yes patience would be the key and having that understanding that the parents often say harsh things out of care and concern as they love you and only want you to succeed and be better than them. And yes I would also advice for the person to talk to their parents and make them understand
  5. Thank you brother. I feel much more contempt now; and yes they are very good friends and are just joking around to tease me. I guess I just took it a little too personally :) Thanks for your response. Thanks. Yes I agree with you. A person is justly rewarded for his deeds and action; thus the more I"m involved, the better outcome. Thank you brother. Your response is much appreciated.
  6. Assalam-O-Alaikum Brothers and Sisters, I'm sure there are alot of us that are mashallah in a a habit of reciting various duas in the morning as a daily routine; such as Surah Yaseen, Duah Ahad, etc. I my self for example recite Surah Yaseen in the morning; however when reciting such duas in the most correct form, as far as how I've understood it from others, one should recite them with complete focus/attention, and actually should not just be reading the Arabic words but actually should understand it. So my first question is that if the person recites the duas mainly in arabic and not having
  7. I'm often teased by some of my very good shia friends who call me "dus din ka shia" meaning "shia of ten days"; that is because although I observe Muharram in general and specially the 1st ten days of Muharram, I go to the majalises at peoples houses and imambarga, but after 10 days, I've typically been lazy and stayed home watching majalis online and missing majalises at people's house. I do feel bad about it, I know I can't use excuses like getting home late from work etc. but even if I'm not attending the majalis a whole lot after the 10 days, I'm still mourning inside my own way. I still
  8. Assalaom-o-alaikum, Being a Shia muslim trying to get closer to my mazhab and realizing all of my wajibat (religious obligation) , I've come to realize that I haven't paid Khums for the last 15 year or so. I understand that it is wajib on me and is part of the 5 pillars of Islam and so I want to really try to better my self at following these obligation as much as possible. I want to make a commitment and start paying my khums starting from Jan of next year taking in account for the entire year of 2012; but I also want to make up for the missed years. So it has become somewhat challenging an
  9. Salam-o-alaikum, Does anyone know of any Aalim's email address who's under Ayatullah Sistani's taqleed whom I can email for questions regularly when in doubt or clueless about certain things. Much appreciated. Thanks, Ali
  10. Salam, Are there brothers/sisters out there who can explain how some people are able to get a hold of the Khak E Shifa (earth of karbala) from Karbala ? Is it very difficult to obtain it ? from whom?. For those who are not able to make a trip to Karbala, is there a way for them to get some Khak E Shifa? I would appreciate if someone can answer. As we know Khak E Shifa has great healing powers and those that have them are very lucky I feel. Ali
