  1. Here is a link to a survey currently being done by members of the American Muslim Bar Assoc. (An association of Muslim Lawyers...http://www.ambalegal.org/), in conjunction with the Shi'a Racial Justice Coalition (http://www.shiarjc.org/). If you are a Shi'a and currently residing in the U.S. would you kindly take a few minutes to fill it out please. https://ambalegal.surveykiwi.com/shiacommunitysurvey It’s now more important than ever that we come together as a Shi’a Muslim community to determine our political priorities based on principled stances. At the end of the survey, you
  2. This past Friday my Grandmother passed away at the age of 98 peacefully in her sleep. I would like to request the Momineen here to recite a Surah Fateha for her please. I was fortunate enough to be able to have a Grandparent in my life almost to the age of 50 and was thankful that my children were able to spend time with the Great-Grandmother. In all my years, I never knew her to miss a single wajib prayer or fast, nor did she ever miss an Aamal or the opportunity to not help the needy while impressing upon all of her family the importance of Azadari. Sadly, she is no longer with us. Woul
  3. Most of the time the shipment of khums to an Ayatullah is an already registered religious, charitable donation. Shi'a from the US have been sending khums money to Iran since the days of Ayatullah Khomeini. Yes, it requires filling out paperwork but that can be filled out well in advance. Especially since the US govt. knows that every year there is a sizable amount of money sent to either Ayat. Khamnei or to Ayat. Sistani. As I mentioned above its been going on since 1980 every year and the US govt. has not stopped it.
  4. I don't think anyone gave them their khums money so it would be given to the IRGC. I most certainly would NOT want my money going to a military division. I've attached a copy of the charges that were brought against them and the logic behind the arrests. Not possible because... 1. The US Constitution clearly defines the Freedom to Worship in any manner. Therefore, it would not hold up in court, even if those charges were brought up due to the charges being unconstitutional. 2. The U.S. allows the sending of money to either family in need, or on Islamic religious basi
  5. Is there a Ziyrat which pulls on your heart more than this Ziyarat? I read this in English and it shakes me to my soul when I read the account that the 12th Imam (عليه السلام) provides of what happened to Imam Husain as Shaheed (عليه السلام). My God...if you aren't aware the feeling of having such a critical part of your blood circulation such as the Aorta severed then you should know of the immense pain and heaviness on your chest that you feel when this happens. If anyone has suffered a heartattack can attest this is a most painful and horrible feeling to endure. Imam Husain (عليه ال
  6. In its purest form "All lives matter" is exactly what we should all be believing. The belief that all human beings are equal, and that all lives are sacred regardless of any demographic differences. However, that was not the intention that opponents of "Black Lives Matter" used it as, opponents of BLM as well as racists, nationalists and bigots created it to diminish the purpose of the term Black Lives Matter by playing the All Lives Matter mantra to mean that they are saying that ONLY Black Lives Matter. The truth could not be further from the truth. The saying is meant to say that Black
  7. Lately I’ve been averaging around 3-4 hours but that’s because my body is so used to additional fatigue that I’m not getting due to the Stay At Home status in the U.S. Normally, I do about 5 hours a night.
  8. Your body gets used to it. When your body realizes that there is less darkness, then it adjusts to going into REM sleep accordingly. Besides, if you think about it we really go to sleep the same time and wake up at the same time anyway. Its just that Fajr is much sooner and maghrib is much later. Other than that there really isn't any change to our day.
  9. So I had a very interesting discussion with a neighbor this past weekend. She is a Republican, Conservative, Catholic who is Pro Life, Anti Immigration, Anti Govt. Regulations, etc...and a Trump voter. I recently put up a BLM yard sign in my yard and she caught me outside doing some gardening with my 12 year old daughter. I would like to say that we've always maintained cordial relations as neighbors (the occasional hi/hello when we see her or her family outside, etc...). Here's how the convo went... At that point she realized I wasn't going to take it down, nor was she able to goa
  10. Anyone out there willing to help a brother out ?
  11. I'm in the market for a web site designer. If anyone is interested please shoot me a message. Thanks !!!
  12. إنا ليلهي وا إنا عليهي راجيون May his exalted soul sleep in the peace it has earned and may he be raised with the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and the Ahle Bait (عليه السلام) that he served on Judgment Day. Every time a Scholar dies the world loses a jewel, and Heaven counts the days until his or her soul enters it.
  13. Since today is Good Friday, I thought I would post this... https://www.al-Islam.org/jesus-through-shiite-narrations-Mahdi-muntazir-qaim
  14. Can anyone confirm if this is an actual statement by Ayatullah Sistani ? https://www.aa.com.tr/en/latest-on-coronavirus-outbreak/Iraq-Shia-cleric-Sistani-calls-to-ban-friday-prayers/1760893
  15. Curious because I wasn’t aware this was possible. I can see the logic behind it. I was curious what the Jafari Fiqh says about this?
