  1. ^ Agree because though it's halaal, I know of a close relative who married a first cousin and the second born is deaf and dumb. So personally, I don't favour inbred marriages.
  2. Forget being face-to-face, well, I'm nervous of namehrams even if it's through emails! I always do something so silly that things get messed up. I go all weak in my knees and hands start shaking and I start dropping things. It's embarrassing to say the least. But, I think it's okay. It's all about exposure. You don't have to unnecessarily talk to guys. When it becomes essential then I do, and make a mess of everything otherwise, I'm happy the way I am.
  3. It's obvious. Whoever said that Turkey was Islamic and neither is Saudi ... so good let them make that much money to go bankrupt in this time of recession and let Iran build it's nukes and scare the life out of both.
  4. There's a vast difference between a politician and a leader. I would recommend Islamic leadership in Iraq and by this I mean anyone who is educated in both religion as well as politics so that his morals are in place and the rest automatically falls in line. After years of turmoil, Iraq needs a strong leader now. Someone who is like an engine of a train taking people to their destination, because without an engine the train is useless. It can't move on it's own. And this one doesn't have to be a cleric. He can be anyone who is knowledgeable. And who are these secularists anyway? Someone pandering to American whims and fancies? It's only Islamic leadership that can solve the problems of humanity.
  5. I wonder why Iraq can't produce a strong leader with a stiff backbone? Why does it always have to depend on outside forces to make peace internally? Iraq is rich. Just look at Basra... a bustling port as well as pots of gold in the form of oil. If only, it can be 'utilised' to help the already impoverished people, how great that would be. But I do like the idea of Iran and Iraq becoming a strong entity. Think how wonderful it would be if we had 2 strong powers representing the shias? Imagine the jitters that will go through to America and Saudi. But sadly, the politics of the region won't let that happen.

    Supplication

    Hmmm I also notice undertones of Munajat of Imam Ali (as). This is s sincere effort. May Allah swt accept all our supplications.

    ^Is this Punjabi? (wasalam) :cry: This is one of the most heart-wrenching masaib to bear. Very good bro. You should compile them all and publish it.
  8. Yes. I've also heard about that. I don't have a problem if someone prays in a Sunni or Shia mosque as long as they pray. :) And anyway during hajj also Muslims pray together. I was just curious to know how these shia brothers pray with Sunnis. Do they also cross their hands like them in case they are praying with the sects that do or they follow our way of doing so?
  9. Yea... some people are getting paranoid about shias. I also hear that some guy was interrogated by the police for joining too many shia related forums on Facebook! Azadari was rampant in Dubai, once upon a time. It's sad that things are tightening up these days.
  10. Do you also cross your hands and pray then? :o :Hijabi:
  11. :squeez: Good you are honest so have got a wee bit chance to wear the precious ammamah on your head. How? I'm sure Dubai has banned zanjeer zani. At least, it couldn't be done last year, I hear. That's how hordes went to Karbala and Syria in Muharram. :unsure:
  12. ^ Good excuse. The ladies don't want to meet you dingdong bell. Isn't that very clear? :angry: :sick:
  13. That is the best landscape picture I've seen in this whole year sis. And I've seen quite a few! I also take my pix from my cell. It's easy and very, very handy. Mount Everest tryst ... Phewa lake, Pokhra, Nepal Mountaineers at the Everest base camp Base camp ... the farthest peak so far!!! :P
  14. I don't understand why you people are asking her to speak to a Marja? I thought she was a Sunni! It's a very difficult situation for her and I'm very sorry that such events do occur in some households. I feel she should speak with some elder in her house, preferably an uncle of hers who would understand her plight. In these cases aunties can add fuel to the fire. If this elderly gentleman can intervene on her behalf it might work out in her favour or better still she can seek the help of the local jamaat. I don't know if sunnis have one, but shias do have very helpful people in those jamaats who try and solve issues amicably between the two families. Or she can also speak with the Maulana who would be reciting her nikah, and he can guide her towards what is allowed in the realm of the Shariah. Inshallah may her problem be solved soon.
  15. :rolleyes: Oh no! Not again... future Ayatollah dingdong and his fatwas! lol. Have any of these meetings worked? Lol. Doesn't seem though. Anyway, I'm not sure how advisable any of these online meets would be. If someone is taking the initiative, it's better to PM the time and place because this is a public forum and you never know who can fake and land up there. It's always better to be on your guard. It's the virtual world after all... Just a word of caution ...
  16. Dingdong, there must be a reason behind her every action. Sleep on it for sometime, when the day's bright and sunny you can drop in your request. Anyway, there's not much that you can do. If she doesn't understand yours instead, why not try understanding her point of view for once?
  17. Talking about the attributes of Imam Ali (as) there is not another who is equal to him in any which way. The importance of knowing Imam Ali (as) is based on the following hadith which claims that Imam Ali (as) is the divider of heaven and hell ... The Prophet, (saws), told Imam Ali (as): "O Ali, you are from me and I from you. Your friend is my friend and my friend is Allah's friend. And your enemy is my enemy and my enemy is the enemy of Allah. O Ali, I am at war with the one who fights you and at peace with one who is at peace with you. O Ali, you have a treasure in the Heaven and you are the master of its both sides. O Ali, you are the divider of heaven and hell. None shall enter the heaven unless he has recognized you, and you have recognized him! And none shall enter hell unless he has rejected you and you have rejected him. O Ali, you and your descendants shall be on the heights (al-A'araaf) on the Day of Judgment, recognizing the sinners by their marks, and the believers by their signs. O Ali, the believers would not have been distinguished, after I have departed, if you were not there." "O Ali, you are the divider of heaven and hell" This statement is a clear indication of the Imam's (as) status before Allah and His messenger (saws), such that his every action and belief is in complete accordance with Islam. The Imam (as) represents Islam in such a perfect and complete manner that recognising and being like him is the only route to heaven, and rejection of who he is - the living embodiment of Allah's wish for mankind - can only lead to hell. The final point made in this hadith states that the believers could not be distinguished from others after the prophet (saw) if it was not for Imam Ali (as). In light of the teachings of this hadith, none other can take the place of Imam Ali (as) as leader of muslims. Recognition of imam Ali (as) and following him truly is guaranteed to lead to success and entry to heaven, and rejection of him is rejection of the laws of Islam and the khalif appointed by Allah over mankind, and can only lead to hell.
  18. So explain to her your reasons for fasting and then find out what she actually thinks and do that only. If you hide and fast that may lead you to telling lies or something similar which itself is a sin. So, what's the point of that fast? Listen to her so that you please her and double your sawab.
  19. A newly published report by Christian Peacemaker Teams and Operation Dove about the Israeli military escort of Palestinian children to school in At-Tuwani, during the 2007-2008 school year, details a catalogue of violent settler attacks on the children and a complacent attitude by the Israeli army. The military escort began in the fall of 2004, following attacks by settlers on the schoolchildren and internationals accompanying them on the public road that passes between Ma’on settlement and Hill 833 (Havot Ma’on) settler outpost. The Israeli Knesset Committee for Children’s Rights affirmed the initial verbal agreement between the At-Tuwani mayor and the Israeli District Coordinating Office (DCO), the section of the army that coordinates civilian affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, in November 2004. The report, “A Dangerous Journey: Settler violence against Palestinian schoolchildren under Israeli military escort”, describes the daily journey of the children from the villages of Tuba and Maghaer al-Abeed to and from their school in At-Tuwani under Israeli military escort. It highlights how settler threats and violence during the journey undermine the children’s rights to safety. Data in the report demonstrate the Israeli military’s violations of its Knesset-affirmed obligations to ensure the children’s safe passage and right to education. Comparison of the data collected during the 2007-08 school year and the 2006-07 school year shows a constant, unacceptable level of settler violence against the schoolchildren. Data also show that in the 2007-2008 school year the tardiness of the army caused the children to miss 25.32 hours of classes, compared to 10.47 hours in the previous school year. The report concludes: “Nearly four years after the Israeli military’s agreement to provide an escort, and the affirmation of this agreement by the Knesset Committee for Children’s Rights, the situation of the children … has worsened. The children continue to be harassed and attacked by Israeli settlers … The Israeli military, which was given a mandate to ensure the safety of the children, has consistently failed to do so.” During the first ten days of the children’s summer camp in July 2008, Israeli settlers attacked the children four times. On Sunday, 27 July 2008, several settlers chased the children and threw rocks at them. One settler attacked a member of CPT, causing head injuries requiring hospital treatment. After this incident a mother said, “The beginning was worse, but after today it seems harder than the beginning. The settlers are still beating our children.” During the first two months of the 2008-2009 school year the children made sixty-eight journeys to and from school. On fourteen of these sixty-eight occasions (21% of journeys) the children had to wait, either before or after school, for over half-an-hour for the Israeli military escort to arrive. On four of these occasions the children had to wait for over an hour, and one morning had to wait for 1 hour and 40 minutes for the escort to arrive. On Tuesday 14 October, 2008, the children were attacked by two Israeli settlers on their way home from At-Tuwani. The two settlers waited for the children near the end of the settlement, threw stones at them and chased them towards Tuba. The attack took place after the Israeli military had left the children to walk alone on part of their route home. Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) promote peace and justice non-violently in a number of the world's conflict zones, including Israel-Palestine. They "get in the way" of violence and militarism, inspired by the Christian Gospel and a willingness to work with others of whatever creed or background.
  20. What's the problem if you call yourself the slave of Ahlul Bait (as)? The literal meaning is to be entirely under the domination or influence of someone. So isn't it better to be a slave of the Ahlul Bait (as) rather than worldly people? Anyway, your poem is brilliant bro and indeed it is the grand Lady of Paradise who will distribute heaven among her followers and slaves.
  21. Good juxtaposition of quotes to enforce the idea in each para. I like it.
  22. Congratulations sis! Since he is the one, I pray that you have a perfectly blissful life. Good luck! I totally agree! It's the easiest way to track someone, if you know definitely more than a name that is.... Lol. Thankfully, only my junk pops up when I'm googled!
  23. Well, our aunties & co belong to different schools of thought. :squeez: I like the thought that I made my mom look beautiful. :P Inshallah. You will get exactly what you want with the blessings of the Holy Ones (as) and it doesn't matter what the gender of your baby is, I'm sure it is making you glow and look pretty charming as it is. :)
  24. Perhaps, if the Imam wills it for you. I know of someone who was brain dead and today he's hale and hearty just because of his mother's faith in Bibi Zainab (sw). Yes, in a way this is raising someone from being dead. I remember reading it in "The miracles of Mashhad" how Imam Reza (as) has helped so many people including actually producing bread from their pockets through his will and there are other stories, too. The Imams (as) definitely had powers that were bestowed upon them through Divine Providence. Bibi Zahra (sa) raised the dead bride who got up accepting Islam. The breathing man lay dead at the feet of Imam Ali (as) when he finished reciting his namaz-e-janaza. Even to this day there is something called the miracle of prayer through the intercession of Imams (as) that changes many a destiny for one. It is said that Ayatollah Behjat can see the faces of people in their true animal forms like how it will happen on the Day of Judgment. Your level of piety and unshakable faith should reach that exalted state to be able to work like this. And I know that it is possible.
  25. Please keep them. Be happy with what Allah swt has bestowed you with. At least you have ears and can use them. Think about those who are deaf? What sort of surgery can they do?
