    ghusal e mayyat

    Salam, The dead body should be laid in the grave on its right side so that the face remains towards the Qibla. If a non-Muslim woman dies with a dead child, or soulless foetus in her womb, and if the father is a Muslim then the woman should be laid in the grave on her left side with her back towards Qibla, so that the face of the child is towards Qibla. https://www.Sistani.org/english/book/48/2189/ I haven't come across any ruling which says the mayyat should be facing Qibla during ghusl. Better to confirm from an Aalim.

    Thoughts 2019

    It's in another city and I would be staying in their home so I don't know. But that was a good suggestion,leaving early hadn't been in my mind. I will try and think of ways where I can attend but still not be a part of celebration.

    Poor Jokes [OFFICIAL THREAD]

    Had a hearty laughter over this Archaeologists Embarrassed After Farmer Admits to Building 'Ancient' Stone Circle in 1990s https://themindunleashed.com/2019/01/ancient-stone-circle-scotland-built-1990s.html?fbclid=IwAR0WBAs4Lii0Wc8y0Ui7zMowVUllcAFchORx-RfPcZ_p0_L0EwiRkiS-6x8

    Thoughts 2019

    Would it be okay for me to attend a wedding 10 days from now I,e 25/26 Jamadi ul Awal?? It's close friend who is getting married, I foolishly promised her I would attend weeks ago not realizing it would be in the days of Martydom of Lady Fatima(عليه السلام).

    Ate/Eating/Will Eat?

    InshaAllah, one day!! My daughter has been giving me lots of trouble lately, getting her to finish her meal is never ending struggle. We eat mostly Pakistani food but occasionally we will have some chinese or Italian style pasta or sometimes I will bake a pie but overall I will have to admit, we are not as 'adventurous' with food as one should be I would kill for a plate of good 'Dahi Bhallay/barray' ground lentil balls soaked in yogurt and topped with tamarind sauce and sprinkled with onions and tomatoes and fried khubz like thingies.... Logistically speaking, I can't even move to another city Mother and Aunt to take care of,(besides my children.lol) and they are at an age where they don't want to leave their familiar surroundings. I crave stability and somewhat of a boring life now(the only excitement being the ziyaraat trips preferably twice a year) so unless there is something that really motivates me to move, I am staying where I am. InshaAllah, that too and also Ziyaraats.

    Marriage

    Tell Parents desperation never solved any problems rather is greatly predisposes someone to make bad decision. What Allah has ordained will happen, not a minute before, not a minute later. Sometimes good things take time, for e.g Hazrat Khadijah and Umme Salamah finding Rasulullah (عليه السلام) as a husband later in life. Duas
  8. @Aflower Do you start a thread attacking people every time you get offended? I am seeing a pattern here. Why not reply to them in the thread and get it over with OR of it's really not worth your time, or not bothering you then why waste even 10 secs over it? If you feel someone is attacking you unjustly you can always use the report function. You have indirectly called another member a 'loggerhead', 'callous', 'rude' 'someone who holds grudges' and attacks people. For now, that member has displayed more self control than you. If he/she started replying here this could turn into a mess.

    Necessity of hijab

    People offer obligatory prayer in Hajj and ziyarat, don't they? Women can offer prayers where they are seen by men.Period. 4Question: Which is better for a woman, performing prayers in a congregation or performing prayers individually? Answer: It is recommended for women to attend congregational prayers as evidenced by an authentic tradition from the Commander of the Faithful, Ali (عليه السلام) that women used to attend congregational prayers but they were ordered to linger their sajda (prostration) because some men were wearing tight garments but there is another authentic tradition which says that a woman's prayer at home is more virtuous than her prayer in a mosque. However, the conclusion that can be drawn from both traditions is that a woman's prayer at a place where she is not seen by non-mahram men (strangers) is more virtuous. If she can perform her prayers in a mosque without being seen by strangers, the prayer in a mosque would be more virtuous in that case. https://www.Sistani.org/english/qa/01154/ @Sumerian this wasn't a question of men and women praying together.

    Necessity of hijab

    Hajj? In the shrines of Masoomeen(عليه السلام)? It's preferable that a woman prays where is not seen by Namahram men, but praying where one can be seen by men does not make the salat void.

    prostration on clay

    Qur'an Surah 99, verse 4 يَوۡمَـئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ اَخۡبَارَهَا ۙ‏ "On that Day it (the Earth) will recount all her news (everything)" According to Abu Hurairah, the Prophet (peace be upon him) recited this verse and asked: Do you know what annals it will relate? The people said: Allah and His Messenger have the best knowledge. Thereupon the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The annals are that the Earth will testify to the deeds which every man and woman has done on its back. It will say: He or she had done such and such a thing on such and such a day. These will be the annals the Earth will narrate. (Musnad Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Nasai, Ibn Jarir, Abd bin Humaid, Ibn al-Mundhir, Hakim, Ibn Marduyah, Baihaqi in Ash-Shuab). According to Rabiah Kharashi, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Beware of the Earth, for it is your root and basis, and there is nothing which a person does on it, and it will not report, whether it is good or bad. (Mujam at-Tabarani). So the Earth will recount to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who prostrated on it. Maybe our brothers expect their carpets to do the same? ;)
