  1. Thank you! I never heard of Persianpod but the website looks really great so far, I will def look into it more.
  2. If this year has taught me anything, it's that death is the only guarantee in life, death is unexpected, and death is near. If you were told you had a terminal illness and will die in 1 month, would that make the decision to fast during this next month any clearer? All we will have soon is our book of deeds. Mathematically, if there is any good time to write good deeds in your book, it is during Shahr Ramadhan, when deeds will be multiplied. You know in your soul you will regret not taking advantage of doing the right thing in this month, whether the regret is something you will feel sooner or later, you will definitely feel it. Listen to that inner prophet that is telling you to do the right thing.
  3. What resources are you all using to teach your kids Farsi? Please share! I am trying to learn with him so something geared towards kids that also benefits me as an adult would be great. I bought the Dinolingo course. It has helped with basic vocab (colors, numbers, animals, food, body parts, etc) but I feel it is really lacking in learning sentence building/structure and verbs/ verb conjugations. So we can say words but can't build sentences. Where do we go from there?
  4. I never knew there was anything immodest about t-shirts. Just follow the Islamic guidelines. If you force people to follow extremes like covering up too much at home, which as far as I know has no basis in Islam, it will create resentment and those same people will go to the other extreme as soon as they are given the chance. Of course you should follow the culture of your home and society to some extent and respect your parents, but if you feel stiffled and there is nothing wrong Islamically with it, then wear what you feel comfortable in.
  5. Exactly. The more you concede, the more people will ask for more and more concessions. I think us humans will never be satisfied, so to make it simpler, draw the line where Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) draws the line. People can where their immodest clothes in their private gatherings if they are so bent on showing their hair and bodies to others.
  6. Yep pretty much but it is hard wired into us to want our children to end up as pious mumineen and is heartbreaking when doing our best still isn't enough to guide them. But that in and of itself is a test for us. Parenthood is akin to prophethood and our duty remind and warn but ultimate guidance is between the individual and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). This is a fresh and honest look at parenthood I read recently if anyone finds it relevent to their situation: https://messageinternational.org/society/my-child-has-wandered-off-the-straight-path/ Goes against most peoples fitrah and general islamic recommendation but thats fine, its not wajib.
  7. Salam, maybe you could specify and number which points are bringing your friend the most doubt so that it is easier for others to respond. Also maybe you and the friend with doubt could have a logical discussion starting from the obvious questions such as Who created the first particles to become the big bang? How is everything around us in such perfect order and design?
  8. I'm not sure where you live but there is an online bookseller in the UK (house of taha) and one in the US (al buraq) that I know sells the book. Here is the goodreads link to it with info and reviews: https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/45316587-peace-be-upon-ibrahim
  9. I am grateful for Shaheed Ibrahim Hadi for changing my life. I read his book at the beginning of the year and since then, the fog has lifted. Everything is so much clearer now. Things make sense. Life makes sense. And I thank Allah for the honor of letting me know him.
  10. Salam What are some practical ways to put love of ahlulbayt and the Prophet (saww) in ones heart? I love them in my mind/intellect but struggle to feel it in my heart of hearts. As in I read about them and read their hadiths and appreciate who they are and their wisdom, but there is a sort of disconnect. How do I reach that love where there is a yearning and a willingness to sacrifice everything for them? I am looking for practical tips, things that have actually impacted you.
  11. Allah is Most Merciful, but your father also has to do his part as best he can and pay the kaffara and make up the fasts. Better to ask a scholar though.
  12. What in the world... Has to be one of the weirdest threads I've seen here.
  13. Hello, you could start here, this is an article about wudhu (ablution) and it has a section about the difference between the sects https://en.wikishia.net/view/Wudu' And here is a video Al-islam.org is a great resource with lots of books about Shia Islam, you could start here for their section on shia/Sunni https://www.al-islam.org/explore/shia-and-sunni
