  7. Staying home with only members of your household is the best way to keep SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) particles out of your home. However, if a visitor needs to be in your home, improving ventilation (air flow) can help prevent virus particles from accumulating in the air in your home. How to Improve Ventilation in Your Home Bring as much fresh air into your home as possible Filter the air in your home Consider using a portable air cleaner Turn on the exhaust fan in your bathroom and kitchen Use fans to improve air flow Limit the number of visitors in your home and the time spent inside https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/Improving-Ventilation-Home.html

  11. People who are looking for a marja need to follow someone who is alive right now. If you were following him before he passed away, you can continue to follow his rulings.
  12. Salam. Welcome to ShiaChat. The two major goals that we strive for are to first provide a website to allow all Muslims and Non-Muslims alike to interact and discuss religious issues; secondly, to promote the Shia Ithna-Asheri school of thought. We try to bridge the gaps between fellow Muslims, as well as uphold the teachings of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Prophet Muhammad SA, and the Ahlul-Bayt AS. With this in mind, Moderators read all new posts by guests, however, they have discretion on whether or not to approve a post. If six Mods read your post and do not approve it because there was a problem with it, then I will wonder why that is. I would also read the post and either approve it or not approve it. There are some kinds of posts that Mods will not approve: A post with a guest username that is inappropriate (name of a registered member, name of a business, sexual term, etc.) A post that is written by a previously banned member A post that threatens Mods to approve the post A post that mentions a member who is temporarily suspended A post with a link to another website (especially if it contains profanity or is not Islamic) A post to a website that triggers a security software (Norton, McAfee, etc.) A post that is so sexual that it could cause arousal of young people A post that is violent, against health or safety Etc.....
  13. We all have a lot to deal with, so stress and coping is very important. From the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) in the US: Take Care of Your Mental Health Stress in 2022 has had a major impact on our lives. It is normal to feel anxiety, grief, or even worry in any situation. Yet, it is also important to learn to cope with stress in healthy ways. Whether you're dealing with work stress, the death of a loved one or a national tragedy, care for yourself each day with actionable tips from the CDC. Take breaks from the news and social media. Consider limiting news to just a couple times a day and disconnecting from phone, tv, and computer screens regularly. Take care of your physical health. Try to eat healthy or well-balanced meals. Get a good night's sleep. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate. Connect with others. Talk with people like family members or health professionals you trust about your concerns and feelings. Make time each day to do activities you enjoy.
  14. Finally watched Kingdom of Heaven. From the description of it, how was I to know that it was fictional? Kingdom of Heaven, the story of Balian (a blacksmith; Orlando Bloom), who joins his father Godfrey (Liam Neeson), the Baron of Ibelin, with 100 men at arms in Jerusalem, to travel as a crusader to defend Jerusalem innocents from evil Knights Templar. Age 17+ Language and violence, (France 1184), time of the Muslim commander Saladin. BTW, the channel I was watching had rated the movie 14+
  15. Since the US made Juneteenth a Federal holiday, my bank will be closed on Monday, June 20th.
  16. Live and let live only works if everyone is alive. (A wise man once said that.)

  17. The Young Turks on Twitter said this: “...Bernie Sanders staffers have been told to essentially have a contingency plan. This has been approved by, apparently, Senator Sanders to have preliminary discussions about what a Sanders 2024 Presidential Campaign would look like in the primaries and in the general election.”
  18. Agreed. And the right of your private part is that you should protect it from everything that is unlawful for you and help it by lowering your eyes - this is certainly the best way to help it. And you should also remember death often, and threaten yourself with God and try to make yourself fear God.1 Preservation from sin and receiving help in so doing are possible by God’s help. There is no strength or power but in Him. Right n. 9: The Right of the Private Part by Imam Sajjad AS
  19. High School? Stop thinking about girls and focus on your education. College/University? Same answer. When you have a job and can afford to get married, a father will listen to you.
  20. Salam. The 4th Imam AS (son of Imam Hussain AS) has many duas that you can recite. Here: Sahifa Sajjadia - Psalms of Islam by Imam Zainul Abideen AS
  21. Optimistic. Trusting that Allah is in charge of everything.
  22. Salam. There are so many duas for hajaat. You can read Salawat and ask Allah for forgiveness. You can read about Hajaat here: http://www.duas.org/hajaat.htm
  23. @acls Salam. Sorry that nobody replied, but maybe they thought it is too personal. If you do a search of older topics, you might find similar information: See the book The Ritual and Spiritual Purity.
