  1. (salam) I was wondering about this question myself...and i did email both Syed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah and Syed Sistani and below are the responces from them. I think that most things that harm us are haram and this is one of them. People might add that the new fatwa (regulation) is made for those who began smoking recently. But if you would think about it logically as we should with most rules and regulations it is harming your body either way and should be cut down until stopped. For example if you have been praying for 10 years and you now found out you are doing something wrong that would make your salat batil (invalid). Would you continue to do it wrong or would you work at your mistake and try to correct it. The problem will not be over in a day but when it gets down to haram and halal then I think it needs to be done. My apologies, the response from Syed Fadlallah came up as an attachment and I could not get it on my response, but to sum it up he stated the same thing, that if it harms your body it is haram. Fi aman Allah
  2. (salam) What if there was a law in your state/counrty stating that you would need to remove your hijab to live there (go to school, work, etc.). The big question is would you do it? With the predicament in France...I still don't know what came out of that if anything did, but most likely it will happen in other countries too. I would just like to hear some opinions, about what you would do in this situation.... To answer my own questions and get this topic started, I think that if it come down to taking my hijab off (for any reason) I would move. Honestly I don't understand why a hijab would stand in the way of school work or anything else. Yes, there is a deeper meaning then just the head covering, but I don't see how that would interfere negatively with ones life. If anything I see it helping by bringing honesty, respect and honor to ones faith and self which should help society especially in this diverse world. But then again that is my opinion and view ... what is yours?
  3. (salam) Salaamu Aleikum, the Eid should be on Tue. Actually we knew that at the start of Ramadan...science wise. kul 3am wa antum bi-kheir (may you all be in good health with each passing year) fi aman Allah
  4. (salam) We were at sbu3 of Dr. Muhammed who passed away sunday the 2nd of nov., and near the end they brought of the news of the Dabaja family. Its so sad. From my understanding the pregnant mother and chld died... also the other 2 children that were with them in the car. The father is in critical condition. It seems they were comming from chicago ( from an islamic conference) with a rental car and the breaks then stopped working.....excuse me if this is not totally correct but this is what I understood. Yet, they also have children at home that were not with them in the car, and who are very young... May Allah help guide them trough this life, and may they all met in Jannah. Ya rab.. Also as for Dr. Muahmmed he passed away last sunday in a car accident, what a tragic death. He did so much to spread the message of our beautiful deen(religion).... may all his work be rewarded. Allah yarhamu! We also had 2 muslim Malaysian girls who died in ann arbor while crossing the street after iftar to return to U.of. M. There are so many young people dying, and its stories like these that help us to remember (Ina li-Allah wa ina ilayhi ragi3un)...we are only visiters on this earth and when Allah (s.w.t) chooses then it is are time to leave. I guess my word of advice is to take charge of your life now and to bring Islam into it now and not wait until tomorrow. If you want to do kheir(good) do it now and dont wait till the 12th of never...becuase we truly dont know how long we have, that is up to Allah(s.w.t) almighty. plz, read al-Fatiha for all these innocent muslims, and may they all be of Al-Jannah...inshAllah fi aman Allah
  5. (salam) Abbas 786 you have a point there but my brother there is harm in celebrating on differnant days. Now with different nations or countries i understand the time difference plays a role but in the same city it should not. First of All- I believe it does bring disunity, maybe not to the extreme, but its there. Other major religions see this as a weakness. And the ummah together argue about who is right and who is wrong which should not happen we should be stronger than that. And for a family to celebrate on different days is just unbelievable. But the major reason is that it is |Haram. It is haram to fast on the Eid and so how do you know who is right and what day is the correct one. I live in a city with many Muslims and so just in the area we have 5 Shia mosques and in turn each praying on a different day, breaking their fast according to that day, and as last year some innocent people fasted on the Eid. I see that this may seem like a mountain from a mole hill as you called it but it is an issue, and I see it as an important one. It is not the reason for the disunity between us but it can play a factor if it continues on. Frankly there is always tension between people according to faith or sect, you can even see it through replies in the forum….I just think this is not something we should add on to if it could be fixed… but may be it never will be. But as you said it would be wonderful if we could all break are fast on the same day. InshAllah Kheir whatever the case may be Ramadan Mubark and inshAllah its a blessed month for all. :angel: By the way.... is it ahram to believe and rely on Falaq? fi aman Allah
  6. (salam) Actually sister abaleada, that is not always the correct method. Sometimes by the time the moon shows completely in your city or country, it might already be a day or 2 old. It does not show everywhere at the same exact time. First of all about the question why we break are fast later.. as they said we wait till the sun sets and the glow (from the sun) that is still there is gone also. I don't understand why people don't believe in falaq? Or if it is haram to believe in it? There are things like NASA that can predict the day, the exact time and place where the moon will emerge. This way we can actually unite and have Eid on the same day. Sad but true last year during the Eid half the Imams said to break the fast while the other half said to keep it ... and with all the confusion the IMAMS took a long trip out of the city because they were not sure of what to do (which breaks one's fast)? Now, I am not sure but I think that is haram; to misguide people. Even in they same family according to the maragi3 that you follow (the Islamic scholars) they broke their fast on different days. If we cant choose a day within the same sect or even family how will all the Muslims around the world break their fast on the same day? We need some kind of unity here. According to the Falaq aspect--they say that the holy month of Ramadan begins on monday the 27th and will end on tuesday november 25....is this correct, for now (only Allah knows)...and I guess we will find out the day after the Eid ( or in this case Eid's). :squeez: Does anyone have a solution to this problem that has been going on for years? Fi aman Allah may Allah bless and help guide us all!
  7. (salam) MashAllah sister Another Umm Ali, that was beautiful And king Rahat, you did a good job with asking your question... seems it was broad enough to get many different aspects and thoughts of sisters. I think whether you wear hijab or not this topic moves you May Allah bless and help guide us all fi aman Allah
  8. (salam) The hijab a simple head covering but much more. It is not just a sheet of cloth the covers your head it has immense meaning behind it. It changes the way you cat and the way you feel towards yourself and towards Allah. I feel that you are given so much more respect when people see you with a hijab. And actually most of the times its americans or christians who treat me with respect. The hijab as Islam is a way to help you live life. As every rule we have in Islam is there to help and protect us, the hijab is the same. When I get frustrated with someone I don't just blurt out whatever is on my mind because I know that I have a hijab on and that I need to respect it and watch what I say. This does not mean I am oppressed in anyway, actually I feel that I have more rights. As I believe Imam Ali has said (not exact quote) women are like diamonds, and you try to keep them safe and hidden from harm ... they are precious and priceless. All the most prominent women that I look up to have worn a hijab. Its a symbol of modesty and piety. Lastly the hijab keep me safe from sins and from harm. When you wear it you remember God and you refrain from sinful acts. At the same time it keep you safe from others. And also it helps your Imam (faith) grow as you learn more about it. There are so many positive aspects of a hijab the list goes on and on. But in turn I love it and would not trade it on for anything. :) InshAllah this is somewhat of a help... good luck fi aman Allah
  9. (salam) This seems like a wonderful topic, it’s sad to see that not many have replied...hopefully we can add a few more quotes in Here are three of my favorite quotes : ::: The Holy Prophet then said " When any of our Shia and supporters assemble in a gathering of the inmates of this earth and narrate this Hadith, Allah will bestow on them His Blessings and Mercy; angels will encircle them and as long as they do not disperse, the angels will pray for the forgiveness of their sins."::: :)
  10. (salam) From my view point (I am not pakistani so I don't know the customs) but Islam is blind it does not matter if the guy is paki, lebanese, iraqi, irani, african american... the list goes on. The only real point is that he is Muslim and shia who practices his faith. Is that not correct? and lol I know not all parents think this way, and most wont allow it but that is all cultural and has nothing to do with Islam... when will we see this??? family is not always best, actually in some cases they turn out to be the worst choice and who would want that for their child.... but that's just my 2 cents... inshAllah it all works out for your sis :) and hey maybe you can help her find a guy who lives near you in the U.A.E fi aman Allah
  11. (salam) Shukran Akhi Ya Aba 3bdallah, but that does not specify enough their veils could be the niqab only, or could be the niqab and hijab or even just the hijab. I was thinking back to all the lectures I have heard at the gami3 and class.. but I don't remember them speaking about that much, maybe its the fact that there was so much going on and so many terrible things happening that it was something they skimmed though... They did not strip them of their clothing so maybe they did not take the hijabs off, maybe it was only the niqab. Key word being Maybe... and what do they really mean by veils ?? :unsure: Shukran though for your reply, all other informaiton will be greatly appreciated
  12. (salam) My question is regarding the sabayah (women) of karbalah... I know that the Grandchildren of the prophet and the other pious women who were there during the battle and afterward wore a niqab (face covering) over their hijab (head covering). From my understanding it was the niqab that was taken off them and they were made to walk in the streets of the city and put though horrendous torture. There are of course many other details... I have been reading a book called "Tears and Tibutes" by zakir...published in Iran. The book is very well written with a chapter talking about each person of karbalah and what struggles they had to go though...but there are a few passages that say their hijabs were taken off, here are some of the passages: From my opinion and knowledge I always thought it was only the Niqab that was taken off because of the fact that Allah would not let the family of the Prophet be put though that shame.... So my question is...did they take their hijabs off also? either way... May Allah curse all who were helping the evil yazid and anyone who even though about hurting the family of the Prophet...yil3an man thalama Ahlul Bait I apologise because I asked this in another forum... but any information will be greatly appreciated. Jazakum Allah Kheir
  13. (salam) Shukran for your comements.. and i agree with sister abbie about the fact that Allah would not shame them in this manor. But is there anyone who knows for certain if it was just the niqab or both... From the lectures over the years and studies in class i recall it was only the niqab, but on the other hand a book published in Iran should be correct.... thank you, any commens would help :)
  14. (salam) Salaam ya Noora and welcome to ShiaChat ... you might want to bring something to eat with u.. because one u start with the forum your going to stay for a while ^_^ If you need help with Arabic ... I'd love to answer any questions... There is a lot to do here, inshAllah it will be beneficial and just a good experience for you Take care sis... Fi aman Allah :angel:
