  1. In 1204, it was converted by the Fourth Crusaders to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire, before being restored to the Eastern Orthodox Church upon the return of the Byzantine Empire in 1261. The doge of Venice who led the Fourth Crusade and the 1204 Sack of Constantinople, Enrico Dandolo, was buried in the church. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hagia_Sophia The graves are still there, as far as I know. If you walk up the ramp which leads to the first floor, on the way up, there is an opening in the wall where I think it was marked that the graves were there.
  2. I have visited Hagia Sophia. Yes there are Christian holy figures burried there.
  3. And this is a big challenge and very complicated and worrisome issue. Many people have no access to any marja or their wakeels. If you give khums to any online Shia charity, they might not provide receipts from Iraq from marjas office. What do you do then....bury khums in the ground for the imam as. to recover when he returns? Finding a reliable collection service for khoms is really a very, very big issue and a very serious matter. I often think most of the khoms I have given in my life, I have no way of confirming whether Ayatollah Sistani office was ever informed of not, because I do n
  4. There is a tradition that there will be two men who will be exactly equal in their good deeds but one of these men will be given hoouris in jannah and the other will not get any. The reason for this would be that the one who will get hoouris will be the person who used to make very frequent duas to get hoouris, while the other person did not make any dua to get them. But it is possible that hoouris are not pretty girls, but infact represent some sort of menifesatation of love of Imam Hussain as. I think there is a tradition that houris are made up of Noor of imam Hussain as.
  5. Thanks, I will do that because at the moment I'm not sure if we are allowed to deliberately dry up any part of the skin before wudo finishes.... and pulling up the trousers to wipe the feet may be considered as deliberately making the hand dry. That was my original question. Who said it is a bath?
  6. Thanks. So does it mean that it is permissible to intentionally dry any part of the skin which has already been washed even before the Wudho finishes? For example, after washing the right arm, a person takes a towel and dries up the arm completely leaving only moisture on the palm for wiping the feet, and then proceeds with washing of the left arm ..... Is this permissible ?
  7. What does "suchlike" include actually? Does it mean that if a man washes his face and then quickly dries it with a towel and then proceeds with the remaining Wudho, it would be valid because it is done in close succession? If it is not allowed to dry the face with a towel before washing the arms, how do we then know that pulling a pyjama up to wipe the feet will be allowed, when we know that doing this will dry up the hand?
  8. Ruling 282...if when one wants to wash or wipe a place, the moisture on all the places that he has already washed or wiped has dried up, the wuḍūʾ is invalid.
  9. Salam One of the conditions of Wudho is that the parts of body which have been made wet should not dry up before the Wudho is complete. Now if one has to wipe the feet but the trousers or pyjamas are covering the foot and the person has to pull the trousers up with his hand, would that invalidate the Wudho because the hand would dry up?
  10. Not all apostates can be killed. Only those who turn apostates and then preach apostasy and are actively driving people away from Islam may be killed, if other conditions are met, as far I know.
  11. It depends on the scenario. If the wife has started living with you and you are paying her nafaqa, and have paid Mehr, then it is only between the man and his wife to decide when they would like to engange in sexual activity and when to they wish to avoid it. But if there was a condition in nikah contract that there will be no sexual intimacy for a set period of time, or the wife demands that Mehr is paid before you touch her and you are unable to pay it, or the wife hasn't started living with you yet and her parents had put in the condition that there will be no physical contact after n
  12. An excerpt from another topic on this forum:
  13. Yes, Ive thought about this monk many times. If a human like this monk has the ability to withstand fire in such a manner, then does it mean that we Muslims should also have similar ability? Should we train ourselves to become so strong, that we can sit in fire easily, for the sake of Islam? If a monk can become so strong, are we Muslims expected to become stronger, or at least at par with him. If a Muslim faces difficulties in life and he says he cannot bare these hardships, can Allah say in return that if a monk can sit quietly getting burnt, then we must also become as strong as him and sho
  14. Wa'laykum salam. I did not make this dua up myself. It is mentioned in Mafateeh-ul-jinan and I have taken image of that page and posted here. I did not see any problem with the dua, and I consider it as an acknowledgement of Allah's blessing and a way to thank Allah for making us muslims. I do not consider it as something which is meant to make a Muslim unduly proud or haughty and neither do I take it as being offensive for any particular kafir.
