  1. Salaam, I was recently watching this youtube video (linked below), and I was wondering what if there are any Shia hadith in regards to the sunnah of the prophet eating meat. Everything Hamza Yusuf refers to is from Umar and hadiths associated with him... so I'm wondering, do the Shia Muslims also have similar hadiths of how many times a week a Muslim should eat meat, etc etc.? If so, does anyone have the sources for me to read up on. Thank you in advance!! I greatly appreciate any help. -WB Shaykh Hamza Yusuf - Health Advice

  3. Well i'm not saying everything is easy and simple, but if you are marrying someone you believe to be a good muslim, and a good spouse, then you have to work out the minor issues, even if it takes time. I was raised in the West since i was 4years old, and my husband only came to the west for 4 years to complete his university education, otherwise he was born and raised in Iran. Sometimes, our views are polar opposites, and what works for us is to just communicate through it all, and not judge. I've grown immensely as a person, and so has he. The language barrier is something I've taken the initiative to work on. It's better if I learn farsi, then ask his entire family to learn english, lol (i don't speak urdu that well). Sometimes it's hard to speak to his mom, even though she speaks english, but its hard for her to express her ideas. I try not to judge her view points right away, but rather ask her to clarify. If clarification isnt enough, then I'd ask someone to translate for me. Again.. it's not easy, but it's doable if you're really and truly committed. Between the two of us, language isn't an issue as he speak english really well. As for cultural stuff, well yes there's a HUGE gap between our cultures (not necessarily pakistani and iranian... but more so western and iranian). Growing up in the West with parents who weren't huge on culture, I find my ethnic culture was washed out, and heavily influenced by western culture. The differences are there... but I think they would be more apparent when we have kids. It's not a huge issue at all at the moment, since i love learning about new cultures. I found the biggest fear I had when marrying him was me possibly losing my self identity. And you're right, the stress of learning a new culture and language is huge... but it all boils down to, if the spouse you're going to marry is right, then go for it. Deen and akhlaaq is what's important, and you shouldn't forget that.
  4. my ethnicity is paki, and my husband is iranian... his family is very religious, and so they realize that ethnicity shouldnt be the number one determining factor in a spouse, there are waaay more important things to look at. The issues we've been having so far is a language barrier between myself and his relatives, and different food preferences (i love my spices). But otherwise it's all dandy :)

  6. Initially I found this site to be realllllyyyyy expensive too, but you honestly just have to wait around for the sales.... or spoil yourself with one or two things u cant wait to come on sale lol. But i would say the quality is why the price is much more. Ive bough clothes from many of the cheaper websites out there, and i CLEARLY see the difference in quality.
  7. I buy a lot of my Islamic clothing from www.shukr.com They have excellent quality of clothes, and if it doesn't fit you right, you can return it within a month, and not have to pay for shipping. Their service has always been great, with their clothing selection updated regularly. The regular price of their clothes are a bit expensive, but I try to wait for the sales... They tend to have regular sales as well. Sorry I meant www.shukr.ca
  8. I'm excited to attend this! I haven't met any Shia sisters in Ottawa yet, so this will be a good experience.
  9. Nope! If i was divorced myself, then I would consider it. But if it was my first marriage, then I wouldn't.
  10. There is one halal butcher in downtown ottawa, which is easily accessible by bus: Olympia Market Centre (613) 237-5633 590 Gladstone Ave, Ottawa, ON You typically need to call ahead to place an order.
  11. Do all cultures take part in this type of demonstration? What's the value of spending money on a horse to parade around town? I think that money could, perhaps, be used a better way? Just thinking out loud here...
  12. I'm a revert to shia islam, so not 100% familiar with all the traditions... What's with the horse? What does it represent? Why is it part of the demonstration? Thanks!
  13. Thanks macisaac!! My eyes are happy now :)
  14. Am I the only one? I find the black background with white text not pleasant on the eyes. I find it difficult to read for a long period of time. I hope someone takes this suggestion into consideration; classic white background / black text please!
  15. Everyone needs to be cautious when discussing the particular quote mentioned... To look at the body of a woman who would not care for Hijab, even if she were advised, is not haraam, provided that it does not lead to sinful act or sexual pleasure, and excitement, nor is it with that intention; and in this rule, there is no distinction between a Muslim and a non-Muslim woman; and also between those parts, like their faces, their hands which they normally do not cover, and other parts of their bodies. I know brothers who justify looking at porn to be okay, since they are able to "control" their sexual desires, and look "purely for the sake of learning". (give me a break) Being in a western society, where women wear shorts or tank tops, it is VERY hard to not look at people as you go about an ordinary day. I think this is what the quote is referring to. BUT, if you feel that by looking at women who are not wearing proper hijab, causes you to be aroused, YOU SHOULD LOOK AWAY AND AVOID IT AT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Allah sees your intentions!!
