    Maisam Haider reacted to vigilant in Giving Khums while residing in West   
    Great answers brethrens. I am quite satisfied with @Mahdavist answer and the links below. I guess it is very important to give it rather than not at all. But ofc we all need to verify everything.
    Hopefully we all can come up with solid system to make it more secure and accessible for everyone in the age of information technology.  I desire it goes directly to Ayatollah Sistani or Ayatollah Khamenai .
    Anyway I am in IT with vast of experience in this industry while living in Europe. I am ready to provide my services for free in the path of Imam Zamana (ajtf) so if anyone has any idea feel free to reach me.

    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?

    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.

    Maisam Haider got a reaction from hasanhh in Hand becoming dry in Wudho   
    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?

    Maisam Haider got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in Duas to read when looking at a Kafir   
    Loving them does not mean that you cannot praise Allah that He has made you better than them in regards to your religion. This dua is not meant to spread hatred for Jews or Christians, or even meant to dishearten them. The Prophet (s) and the imams taught us to respect Jews and Christians. At the same time, the Prophet also advised to read this dua because that is acknowledgment of a fact and a blessing of Allah that He has made your religion superior. One should be proud of this and at the same time be respectful to others. 
    There are other duas which have strong words against kafirs/mushriks; duas which we are recommended to read after every Salah.... What would you say about those?

    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 should face fire easily.... and if we don't reach that level, is that a deficiency of imam? There is a hadith on the lines that following Islam is like holding a lighted coal in the hand.

    Personally I don't really see anything wrong with the du'a, unless you literally recite it in the face of a non-Muslim, but even then the wording of the supplication itself doesn't tell the person that he is going to hell.
    However if you want to reject it, it doesn't have a reliable chain of narration (shaykh Haider Hobbollah hasn't included it in his al-Mu'tabar min Bihar al-Anwar - The Reliable (narrations) from Bihar al-Anwar)

    There is a part of Dua al Samat where you name your enemy (or any kafir (la) in this case) and ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to take revenge on this person.

    I haven't really seen, but in Dua al Samat you can name your enemy, and keep reading and praying to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)

    O my Allah, (mention the name of the person with father’s name for whom this du-a’a is written) has no capacity, nor he has endurance to come to grips with misfortunes, nor he has endurance to come to grips with misfortunes, nor he has strength to withstand hunger and destitution. O my Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on his children, and do not let his means of sustenance (from You) fluctuate, do not be less generous in giving him from the vastness of Your bounties, do not exclude him from Your generosity, do not keep back from him Your liberal distribution (of bounties); do not give him over to Your liberal distribution (of bounties); do not give him over to Your creatures, nor (even) to himself, because he will not be equal to the task and will be too weak to perform well or set aright that which has gone (wrong) before, but You by Yourself put into good condition the disorder in his business and confusion of affairs and take charge of his welfare, look after all his affairs. If You put Your creatures in charge of (his affairs) they will not serve him, nor hand over (his affairs) to his relatives, they will take possession of (his rights); and if at all they give, they will give that which is less and trifle; and if they refuse to give, they will withhold much; and if they be niggardly they do full justice to niggardliness. O my Allah, give much to him from Your abundant bounties and do not let him be without (Your abundant bounties), because, verily very much in need he turns unto You to seek and obtain that which is in Your hands, whereas You have no need of him, and You are fully aware of his (needs and wants). Whoso relies upon Allah, for him He is sufficient. Verily Allah completes His decisions. Allah has set a due measure for everything. Verily, with every difficulty there is ease. Whosoever is aware of the divine laws (and follows them) to him He shows the true way out and gives him sustenance from where he does not reckon.

    Yes pork would become permissible because he has no other option. But sexual sins will still not become permissible. For example, if an unmarried person is imprisoned for life and will never be able to get married or do mutah, it will still remain haram for him to do any sexual sins like masturbation. This is because fullfiment of sexual desire is an optional thing, it is not a necessity of life. Sexual desire can be suppressed to the point of being like non-existant, like our Imams(عليه السلام) did when they were imprisoned.

    Prophet Isa (عليه السلام) did not deliberately choose to remain unmarried. He remained unmarried because it was not possible for him to keep a wife. He was not allowed by Allah to keep any possessions. He did not have a home. He once picked up a nail he found on the ground one day to mend his shoe, but jibrael came down immediately and told him that Allah doesn't allow him to use that nail. So if he couldn't even posses a nail, how could he marry and maintain a wife. 
    The lesson we learn from his life is that if someone is in a similar position where it is impossible for him to get married or do mutah (for example if an unmarried man is imprisoned for life), then he is expected to remain fully chaste and sin-free. This is because fullfiment of sexual desire is not an absolute necessity of life. Those who have the means to get married or do mutah, should do it. And those who don't get the means, should remain sex-free, even if it means life long celibacy (like Isa(as)).

    I am not saying that mutah for pleasure is wrong.
    What I am saying is that while on one hand Islam strongly encourages nikah and mutah, on the other hand it also tells us that fullfiment of sexual desire is not an absolute necessity. Marriage is wajib only for those who have fear of falling into sin. This means it is possible for a man to remain unmarried and still remain chaste all his life without ever committing a single sexual sin (like Isa(عليه السلام). I'm not saying a Muslim should become celibate. I'm saying that if the situation so demands, life-long chastity is not considered an impossible target to achieve in Islam (with divine help).

    It is reported that one day the rain and thunder became severe for Jesus (‘a) so that he sought some place of shelter. Then a tent was set up for him in the distance, so he came to it. All at once, (he saw) there was a woman in it, so he turned from it. Suddenly, he saw a cave in a mountain, then he came to it. Then, all at once (he saw) there was a lion in it.
    So he rested his hand against it (the cave), and said, “My God! For everything there is a shelter, but You put no shelter for me.” Then Allah, the Supreme, revealed to him, “Your shelter is in the abode of My Mercy. By My Greatness, on the Resurrection Day, verily, I will marry you to a hundred houris created by My hand, and verily for your wedding I will provide food for four thousand years, each day of which is like the lifetime of the entire world.
    And I will command a crier to cry out, ‘Where are the ascetics of the world? Be present at the wedding of the ascetic Jesus the son of Mary.’

    22. It is reported that Imam ‘Ali (‘a) said in one of his sermons: “If you like, I will tell you about Jesus the son of Mary (‘a). He used a stone as his pillow, wore course clothing and ate rough food. His stew was hunger and his lamp in the night was the moon.
    His shade in the winter was the east of the Earth and its west. His fruit and his basil is that which grows from the Earth for the cattle. He had no wife to try him, and no son to grieve him. He had no wealth to distract him, nor greed to abase him. His mount was his feet and his servant was his hands.”23
