  1. This year I am hearing something new. The sunnis in Pakistan have started a new campaign against Eid Ghadeer saying it's the shias celebrating the death of Caliph Usman (عليه السلام) . This is the twitter hashtag for those of you who want to read the comments. #شہادتِ_عثمانؓ_پرعیدغدیرکیوں It is full of 'Fazaail of Sayyidna Hazrat Usman' one of them being his expertise in settling complicated inheritance disputes (by giving Fadak to Marwan bin Hakam,for example??) Secondly,I found people quoting this Khomeini writes in Kashf ul Asrar that those who remained with the Prophet, they must have removed the verses of the Quran which had named Hazrat Ali as the Caliph after the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) ( see kashf ul Asrar pg 113-114 ) This is why shia sunni unity is such a failed concept.
  2. Yes still a senator. Here: Senator A Rehman Malik has taken serious notice of the matter regarding seizure of an Iranian ship at the Port Qasim, Karachi, over its involvement in oil smuggling into Pakistan. According to a statement on Friday, Malik said that seizure of an Iranian ship, smuggling oil, was a serious international issue which might bring Pakistan under pressure as the smugglers had not respected the Pakistani law and sanctions on Iran.
  3. Rahman Malik and Ahmedinejad were in office between 2008-13. Someone tell this to the people cursing Pakistan in the comments below. Lolz
  4. Rahman Malik and Ahmedinejad! Almasdar news! Which year is this? 2020??
  5. Surah no 12. Prophet Yusuf's brother asking their father Prophet Yaqub to pray for their forgiveness. Verse 97,98 They said, "O our father, ask for us forgiveness of our sins; indeed, we have been sinners. He said, "I will ask forgiveness for you from my Lord. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."
  6. What we can use it for is shia networking eg for people looking for jobs, those moving to new areas and looking for housing etc, recommendations for trusted shia owned businesses, shia people who would want to outsource online work to other shias etc.
  7. Asbag bin Nubatah says, “I saw my master, Amirul Mu’minin ((عليه السلام).) standing at the gate of Kufa looking towards the desert. It appeared that he was busy talking with someone but there was no one. I also stood up. After a long time I felt tired. So I sat down and got up again after a while. But ‘Ali ((عليه السلام)) was still busy talking. I went a step forward and asked, 'O Amirul Mu’minin! Who is it you are talking to?' He said, 'This talk of mine was to please the spirits of the faithful.' I asked, 'Which faithful? No one from those who have passed away is present here.' He said, 'Yes, they are present here.' I again asked, 'Are they present here physically or in spirit?' He replied, 'Their spirits. Had you been able to do so, you could have seen how they gather at a place, talk mutually and please one another remembering the gifts and bounties of God.'“ ---------------------------- It is mentioned in Maniul Akhbar that the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.) said, “Go on sending gifts to your dead.” The companions asked, “O Messenger of God! What can be a gift for the dead?” The Prophet said, “Supplications and alms.” Then he added, “Every Friday eve, the spirits of the dead come to the nearest sky and, standing in front of their homes, cry out weeping sorrowfully, 'O my family members! O my children! O my parents and O my near and dear ones! Be kind to us. God will be kind to you. We have to account here for what wealth and property we had in the world and by which others benefit there. Please do us some favour, be it through a dirham or bread or a cloth. God will adorn you with heavenly dress. https://www.al-islam.org/the-hereafter-maad-ayatullah-dastaghaib-shirazi/barzakh-purgatory-stage-between-world-and-hereafter If souls of ordinary human beings can communicate with the living why can't Imams (عليه السلام)
  8. You believe this? This is contrary to what is said in the Quran: And do not say that whoso is killed in the path of Allah his dead. No! Indeed they are alive but you do not know how. (Surah 2, al-Baqarah verse 154)
  9. In the sense that people were expected to follow both.This wasn't a conflicting thing since Imam Ali(عليه السلام) had been declared his nafs by Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) so Imam Ali(عليه السلام) would never do or say something that the Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) wouldn't. This wasn't even something new since Imam Ali(عليه السلام) had always acted as Prophet's vicegerent. Please keep in mind, Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imam (عليه السلام) aren't equal . Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) was and always will be higher up than Imam Ali(عليه السلام) . It's like there is a project head and he appoints a second in command to act on his behalf when he isn't there.
  10. To be happy in their happiness and angry at what makes them angry, to be sad at what hurts them,be enemies to their enemies or those who hate them, to love their beloveds, yearn to attain closeness to them, feel heartbroken at thought of being away from them,not hesitate to lose our lives or possessions to defend them or gain closeness to them,make choices keeping in mind what would please them... I could go on and on but this should give you an idea.
  11. @hasanhh My point was, younger the children more separation anxiety they will have. Also I have seen children this young don't enjoy a structured routine. I believe of the mother is a stay at home mum she can be the best teacher but like Diaz said each child is different.
  12. Not true. Humans don't have enough body hair to trap an insulating air layer. Works well for animals though.
  13. Three is a little too early in my opinion. Both of my kids started schools at 4.5yr. I felt some pressure from people around me telling me I am getting late and my kids will suffer. I am glad I didn't give in to the pressure.
  14. 1. Make arrangements to leave the kids with some family or friends you trust for a few hours every week or fortnightly so you two get some downtime. You can reciprocate by doing the same for those friends. 2. Schedule some time for kids everyday where you don't take any calls. Give them full attention during the time and probably they won't be as demanding afterwards. 3. Try not to bring work home. Tell your boss/partner/colleague that it's family time. Both your wife and kids need you to spend some time with them without any distractions. 4. Get some toys which keep kids busy and try and teach them to play by themselves.You could get crayons and lots of paper, Lego, board books etc
