  1. Salaam,

    it is authentic, and indeed it makes sense completely, this is why were created, to know Allah, and how do we get to know Allah? By prayers, which is why we are created as says in the quran, i have noticed some people say "we are created for woshipping not for knowing Allah" but the purpose of worshipping and result is knowing Allah

  2. assalamualaikum...

    i would like to ask you guys a question...

    i hope someone could answer it.

    I don't know to whom i should ask accept for u guys here..

    may Allah bless you all.

    we believe that the wives of the prophet are not included in ahlul bayt according to the verse 33:33 and alsa hadith al-kisa...

    but how should i explain to my friends concerning verse 11:73?

    they kept saying that Allah had mentioned sara as prophet ibrahim's ahlulbayt...

    Salaam,

    even if thats right that sara (ra) was considered as a ahlulbayt of prophet ibrahim (as) thats not the ahlul bayt of prophet muhammad (saw) so we shouldnt be connecting them to together, theyre both different, tell them that in the verse of purifcation after talking about the wives, the context of the word referring to them (those in the purifcation verse) changed to masculine, because in arabic, if there is lets say 100 females, but theres one male in the group, the word changes to masculine, so obviously there had to be men in this group, but also there was fatima (sa), so the ahlul bayt isnt just the wives, and the wives arent included in it either, im not very good on this topic, but on cyconline.co.uk/forums someone asked a question in the guest speakers area that was the same.

  3. Salaam

    qunoot is not wajib, but salawat on muhammad (pbuh) and his family is wajib during the part you say when your sitting down, and i have learned about this in fiqh, that if you miss one sajdah in prayers its still valid, you dont have to make up for it or anything like that.

  4. Salaam,

    dont be worried, often a bad dream can mean something you would NEVER expect, like bad dreams can mean good, and vice versa, its not always the case, but its very possible, or it could be a warning for you about something that may have to do with if you should get married to your fiancee or not, thats happened many times for me (having a interpretation for a dream i would never expect), usually scholars know basic things about interpretation, go to a trustworthy and good scholar your know of, even if its contacting him by phone or email or whatever, contact him and ask.

    Salam,

    The following is from my book which might help you interpret your own dream in sha Allah,

    -------------------------

    Dreams and Visions

    Allah says in Quran 39:42

    أعوذ بالله من الشيطٰن الرجيم بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

    ٱللَّهُ يَتَوَفَّى ٱلْأَنفُسَ حِينَ مَوْتِهَا وَٱلَّتِى لَمْ تَمُتْ فِى مَنَامِهَا ۖ فَيُمْسِكُ ٱلَّتِى قَضَىٰ عَلَيْهَا ٱلْمَوْتَ وَيُرْسِلُ ٱلْأُخْرَىٰٓ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍۢ مُّسَمًّى ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍۢ لِّقَوْمٍۢ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

    Allah returns to Him the souls when dying or during their sleep; then He withholds those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends the others back till an appointed term. Most surely there are signs in this for those who reflect.

    This verse shows that when one sleeps his soul (النفس) leaves his body and enters dreamland while his spirit (الروح) keeps his body alive because one of it functions is an energy gate to Allah, the energy Provider.

    Any soul that is to die while asleep, not only its does not come back to the body but its corresponding spirit leaves the body too. Other souls come back into their bodies to wake them up from possibly their Rapid Eye Movement sleep state and back to this material world or domain.

    If a soul is pure enough, it will remember what it has been allowed to see including future events in dreamland. Other less pure souls would suffer from interference from the Satan and his followers who corrupt their dreams or even worst reverse them.

    This is why dreams of the Prophets are real visions into the future (رُّءيَا) and must therefore be acted upon, while average people like you and I only remember distorted facts which is why many books written about dreams assume impure souls and thus try to interpret dreams inversely, and Allah knows best.

    -------------------------

    Ali

    to be safe from shaytans in your sleep and dreams, recite surah yaseen before going to bed, and offer the thawab to one of ahlul bayt (as)

    first of all for those interested to learn about this great person, theres a book called uswat al arifeen (model of the gnostics) that is an amazing book, its his biography, includes short bios of some of his teachers, some karamat (special incidents/minor miracles) of him, lots of advice from him on certain topics (very useful ones too), i highly recommend this book. He does have a website by the way,

    also a interesting short story, so my friends mom has a friend who met ayatollah behjat in iran one time, she wanted to meet him to seek a solution for some sort of problem she had (dont know what) and when she was going to go see him, she sees him going into his car to leave, and she wanted to ask him a question, but ayatollah behjat just told her without her saying/asking anything "It will be good" meaning her problem will be fixed, so somehow he knew of her problem without her telling him.

    sadly they only have arabic and farsi so far, perhaps you can translate it into english with a google translator http://translate.google.com they have arabic and farsi (persian) translator, i used it, it translated pretty much the whole website well. They refer to farsi as persian on the translator

    i think the prophets are referred to as messengers in quran too, what you might be trying to say, is the rasool meaning, the ones who brought a book/sharia. 5 of them are referred to them as major prophets or rasool, though there are other ones who have brought a book but not a major prophet like dawood (as), so these are the 5, im 99% sure that nuh (as) and ibrahim (as) brought a book,just cant remember them. These five are considered as the leaders of the rest of the prophets.

    Nuh (as)-

    Ibrahim (as) -

    musa (as) - Tawrat, (torah)

    isa/jesus (as) - Injeel (gospel)

    muhammad (pbuh) - quran

    (wasalam)

    (salam)

    I had a similar question and I thought, I could ask it here. Some people say that well, when you write letters to Imam Mahdi a.s. (ajf) and then let them float off into the sea, or bury them in the sand, he gets it. Some people say if you have any problems, write a letter to your Imam Mahdi a.s. (ajf) and then keep it under you Janamaz/ Prayer Mat. After a while you will get answer. Is this true can things like this happen?

    I hope you dont mind FatimaZahra.:blush:

    Please do reply,:)

    Thank you.

    Salaam,

    of course i dont mind, i dont get bothered by questions :). Yes it is very true, i have done it, and actually you do the letter and just put in a well, or somewhere that leads to ocean (river, stream, etc.). He does get that actual letter, and it goes to him, and he reads it, its amazing, you write a letter, and send it to him, then he gets the exact letter you wrote on, too bad he doesnt always reply back directly :( the letter is called ariza, you can find how to do it on duas.org. I know a method that if you do this, you will for sure see Imam Mahdi (as) go to the mosque in kufa for 40 thursdays (it mightve been fridays) in a row, and on the 40th thursday you will meet him, i think the mosque in kufa theyre talking about is the famous mosque there imam ali (as) would go to, but allamah hilli (ra) did this before, and met him, but didnt realize it was him, because he met him as he was going into kufa on the 40th thursday

  9. i have asked Ayatollah sistani n his answer is Dua jaushan kabeer

    not for earthquakes only but for all catastrophe

    here is the dua n the translation

    my house is placed at the earthquake line (you know the place when two continental plate met)

    its proven in latest earthquake report

    alhamdulillah my house save n sound, including the things inside

    even that the earth shaking very hard (almost 6 M)

    laa hawlaa walaa quwwata illa billah ...

    i just rest my case to Allah because i cannot afford to move anywhere else

    btw, i subscribe to natural hazard n earthquake report, almost everyday theres earthquakes somewhere

    Thanks :)

  10. (salam) (bismillah)

    Are there any specific duas which are used for preventing earthquakes or natural disasters? This year theres like 6 big earthquakes i know of expected to happen, then the haiti one which happened, many natural disasters happening this year, and this year muharram started on a friday, and in a farsi dream book it says that when muharram starts on friday that year will have many natural disasters (earthquake, landslide, tsunami, hurricane, etc.)

    by the way if you wanna know of where those 6 big quakes expected to happen heres a list. (no specific order,just random order)

    1. Tokyo, Japan. 2. Indonesia 3. Los Angeles, California 4. Bay area, California (hayward fault) 5. Tehran. 6. Pacific northwest, (around southern oregon/northern california area)

    To those who may be worried about natural disasters, one of the Imams (i think it was Imam Sadiq (as) said to recite surah zilaal/the earthquake in the nawafil prayers to be protected from natural disasters, but doesnt mean they wont happen, means you will be protected from them and your family too inshallah. When will Imam Mahdi (as) come :cry:

  13. (salam) (bismillah)

    This is the will of Ayatollah Marashi Najafi (ra) to his son, i considered it very beneficial, so i though i would share it ^_^

    Last Will of Ayatollah Mar'ashi Najafi

    I advise my son:

    Always remain ready to serve the religion of Islam and strive in the defense of Truth. Today the religion of Islam is crying, Hal Min Nasirin Yansuruni, Hal Min Dhabbin Yadhubbu Anni? – "Is there a helper who will come to my aid? Is there a rescuer who will come to my rescue?" O my son, in this age there are very few who answer this plea from Islam, and may Allah reward the few that there are.

    Always ponder deeply over the verses of the Holy Qur'an and follow the advice and instructions contained therein. Visit the graves frequently and think, "where were these people yesterday, what were they, how were they, and where have they come today? Do not sit and indulge in vain and useless gatherings. There are few gatherings today where gossip, slander, and lies are not present; rather, they do not exist. Refrain from excessive attachment to this world.

    Maintain good relations with your close relatives, because by this act you will gain inspiration to do good deeds and earn blessings and an increase in your means and life-span.

    Always refrain from backbiting of the servants of Allah, and especially remain aloof from gossip about the scholars, because that is like eating poisoned dead meat.

    Remain engrossed in the learning of religious knowledge. Continue to progress in it every day, and remain busy in spreading it all the time.

    O my son, make a habit of reciting Sura Yaseen after morning prayers every day. After Dhuhr prayers, recite Sura Naba, after Asr prayers, recite Sura Asr, after Maghrib prayers, recite Sura Waqia, and after Isha prayers, recite Sura Mulk. In this practice are amazing gains. My teachers advised me to this, and I have seen its blessing more than once.

    In the Qunoot of obligatory prayers, always recite the following: Allahuma Inni Asaluka Bi Haqqi Fatimata Wa Abiha Wa Ba'liha Wa Baniha Wa Sirril Mustaudihi Fiha, An Tusalli Ala Muhammadin Wa Aali Muhammad, Wa An Taf'al Bi Ma Anta Ahlu, Wa La Taf'al Bi Ma Ana Ahlu. – "O Allah, I beseech you in the name of Fatima, her father, her husband, her sons, and the secret she is buried with: shower your blessings upon Muhammad and his Progeny, and do unto me that which is worthy of Your mercy, and not that which is worthy of my actions." This supplication was taught to me by both my father as well as my teacher Shaikh Muhammad Hussain Shirazi. He has narrated this authentic narration from Sayyid Murtadha Kashmiri by Ibn Taoos from the Holy Imams (peace be upon them).

    O my son, in the Ruku, especially of the last Rak'at, after Dhikr, recite Salawaat in this way: Allahumma Salli Ala Muhammadin Wa Aali Muhammad Wa Taraham Ala Aajizna Wa Aghizna Bihaqqihim.

    Always recite the Tasbih of our wronged grandmother Fatima Zahra. That Tasbih is not only for recitation after prayers; rather, it should be recited all the time.

    O son, there is a memorable speech by Lady Fatima which she gave in the Mosque of the Prophet in front of the Ummah. Even the scholars and proficient linguists have failed to understand it fully. Think deeply about her words and try to understand them.

    Study the famous sermon of the Chief of the Believers and the Leader of the Oppressed called Shiqshiqiyyah.

    I stress to you to never abandon the Night Prayer. Do Istighfaar in the early mornings.

    Be gentle and merciful to the poor and needy, and especially take care of the Sadaat and students of Islam.

    Avail yourself of the blessings of visiting the Holy Ahlul Bayt (peace be upon them). Reach the places where they are buried and after reciting salutations, repent and recite supplications – in these actions there are untold benefits.

    O my son, regard your life's time as precious, and do not waste it on useless talks. Allah is strongly displeased with a young man who wastes his time.

    I have gathered the earth from the graves of the Ahlul Bayt, the Holy Imams, their children, their companions, and the pious scholars in a small bag. Bury it in my grave with me so that I am blessed.

    Also place in my grave the black clothes I use to wear in the grief-ridden remembrance of the suffering of the children of the Holy Prophet during the months of Muharram and Safar.

    After shrouding me, place on my chest the handkerchief with which I used to wipe my tears in mourning my grandfather Hussain (peace be upon him).

    O my son, always remain in a state of purity. By that act, the soul of a person remains content and is free from grief.

    After my death, perform the Hajj and Ziyarat of the grave of the Holy Prophet on my behalf. All my life I longed to do this, but due to hardship, I could not go. Similarly, visit the sacred places in Iraq on my behalf. For both these good acts, I do not have anything except a few books. I hope my children will pay from their own wealth and do this kindness to me. My Lord is a witness that I do not have an inch of land nor any wealth of any sort.

    O my son, if possible, use some of your wealth as Radd al-Madhaalim on my behalf, in case I have any dues outstanding.

    O my son, every Thursday night, ask someone to come to the side of my grave and recite about the suffering of Imam Hussain.

    When my bier is carried, announce to the people that if I owe anything to anyone, he should forgive me before I am buried.

    Every Thursday night, my sons should come to my grave and recite the Holy Qur'an and listen to the remembrance of Imam Hussain.

    The rosary made from the earth of Kerbala with which I used to recite my Istighfaar should be buried with me.

    wasalam

  14. (salam) (bismillah)

    An authentic hadith from bundle of flowers (al-islam.org)

    The Holy Prophet said: "During the third part of every night and on the night before Friday from the beginning (until the break of dawn) Allah sends an angel unto the sky of the earth in order to call: 'Is there any needy who asks that I may bestow upon him his need? Is there any repentant one that I may return to him? Is there any seeker of forgiveness that I may forgive him?'"

    Note:

    Islamic traditions teach that sleeping on the night before Friday is called 'the regret sleep'; for, on the Reckoning Day, people will regret very much that they had been asleep on the nights before Fridays.

    theres this one dua which is short, but very good to read on shabe jumma (night of friday), tonight, its in arabic in one of my books, so ill just put transliteration below of the dua,

    1. when theres a bold t that means its the ta in arabic which looks kinda like a lowercase b, and dha in bold will be used as the dha which looks like the ta just mentioned except has a dot on top.

    2. and a bold h will be the ha in arabic used in the title Hashr, of surah hashr

    3. bold a will be the ayn used in arabic word azeez, bold o will be the ayn that has a "o" accent on top, like in osraho

    4. gh will be used for gh in word ghadir, and when i put a bold gh that means the letter ghayn which is used in the arabic word

    toghayarok,.

    5. the letter Saad used in the the title of Surah Saad, will look like a sa that is bold, and the dhaad that looks much like saad will look like dhaa underlined. all other letters will be normal, why i put all these specifications for these letters is so you get the pronunciation right. Also one more thing, when i had 2 a's after some letter like khaa it means its like an a sound in the world ball, and its stretched more too.

    yaa salaamul mumin ul muhaymin ul azeez ul jabbar ul mutakkarab utaher ul mutahharo al ghaahir ul ghaadir ul mughtadir. Yaa man yonaadaa min kolla fajjan ameeghin bi-al-sinatin shattaa wa loghaatin mokhtalafitin wa hawaaija akhraa yaa man laa yashghaloho sha'non an sha'nin antal ladhee la toghayarokal azminato wa la toheeto bika alam kinato wa la ta'khodhoka nawmon wa la sinaton yassarlee min amree maa akhaafo osraho wa farraj lee min amree maa akhaafo karbaho wa sahhal lee min amree maa akhaafo hoznaho sobhaanaka laa ilaa ha ila ant innee kontom minadhaalemeena amilto soo an wa dhalamto nafsee faghfirlee innaho laa yaghfiro-dhonooba illa ant wal hamdolillahi rabbal alameen wa la hawla wa laa ghowwat illa billahil aleeyal adheem wa salallaho alaa nabeeyyat mohammadin wa aale wa sallam tasleemaa

    i stress to you to read this each night of friday, also something very imporant, ayatollah marashi najafi (biography on islamicinsights if you want to learn about him) has said in his will to his son that make a habit to recite the following surahs after each prayer, fajr - Surah yaseen. Dhuhr - Surah Naba. Asr- Surah Asr. Maghrib - Surah Waqiah. Isha - Surah Mulk, he said his teachers had advised him to do this and he said it has amazing gains and has seen blessings in it more than once, i have been doing this for about a week or more, and i have too already seen the blessings in it! You should really do it! also he stressed to his son never to abandon night prayer.

    wasalam

  15. (salam) (bismillah)

    so sad :'(. Imagine Bibi Zainab (sa) she had to go through the pain of the death of her grandfather, her mother, her father, Imam Hassan (as), and witness all her other brothers and their companions be slaughtered brutally at karbala, and see their heads on spears, AND even more, yazids army stole the hijab (not niqab, hijab, i dont even know if bibi zainab wore niqab or not), and were paraded through the streets in this state with chains including the children, i have read that Imam Muhammad Baqir (as) said when he was burying his father he could still see marks on his neck from the chains in karbala :cry: I wonder if anyone has any information about bibi fizza (sa) in karbala, and what it was like for her when she was there.

    wasalam

  16. (salam) (bismillah)

    backbiting is worse than i thought, and also, you might say something and not realize your backbiting, read this. By the way, imam in here is referring to Imam Khomeini (ra),

    Story 1

    Imam’s wife narrates: One night after prayers, Agha (Imam Khomeini) was sitting and I was also with him. Our maid Fatema Khanom brought tea and placed it in front of us. Another maid was also busy gathering (things) in the corner. I said to Agha that Fatema Khanom is a very good maid.

    Imam said: “Don’t backbite.” I said: “Agha, but I didn’t backbite. I said that she is very good.” He said: “What you said is good (enough to be backbiting) because the other maid can hear and it seems that you want to say that she is not good, and this is backbiting"

    Story 2 (the sinfulness of backbiting)

    One time, Imam called his family and said: “I had the intention to tell you something at a time when you are altogether.” Then he said: “Do you know how much sin backbiting has?” We said: “Yes.” Then he said: “Do you know how much sin killing a person has?” We said: “Yes.” He said: “Backbiting has more (sin)!” He then said: “Do you know how much sin unlawful acts and acting against chastity (i.e. adultery) is?” We said: “Yes.” He said: “Backbiting has more (sin).”

  17. I didnt mean if they have met him, i meant if they have contact with him, as in know of his whereabouts, are able to see him when they like, and those kind of things, not just incidents when someone meets with him and then later the person who met him realizes it was him. Contact just as the deputies of Imam Mahdi (as) in the smaller occultation had contact with him.

  18. (salam) (bismillah)

    I highly doubt this, to the point i dont even believe in it, 3 reasons,

    1. All of ahlul bayt (as) supplicated only in arabic, though they did know other languages

    2. Arabic is the language of jannah (heaven) and is the best language to supplicate in.

    3. All duas/munajat/ziyarat/quran are in arabic in the original form

    wasalam
