      Although my name gives it away.

  3. (bismillah) (salam) I dont really have alot of knowledge about this. But from what I know/have read, Islam tried to fight slavery indirectly. Eg; do this big sin/miss this act, free a slave. This is because at that time, owning slaves was like.. normal. A sudden change would be difficult to handle. So Islam had to slowly get rid of slavery. But it is allowed nevertheless and we had been taught how to treat slaves.
  4. (bismillah) (salam) I would advice you to keep a balance between everything. You need time, give it yourself. Make a chart of 40 days. Tick them up if you continuously offer your wajib prayers. No need to worry about any other amaal till then. After you have offered prayers for 40 continuous days, start with salatul Layal for 40 days. Then start with controlling you anger , or not talking uselessly for 40 days. I would ask you to think Allah (SWT) . Ask Him, for help surely He will help you. Also Imam Ali a.s. in one of his hadiths has said something along the lines, that one who is not honest cannot taste the sweetness of faith. So be honest to yourself. For example; even though crying in your duas, is a proof that your dua is accepted, if you don't feel like crying when you are asking Allah (SWT) for something, don't make yourself busy in trying to get tears out. Just fully indulge in your prayers. Similarily always be honest to yourself and work on your weakness. 14 Infallible is very right. Offering your prayers as soon as possible and staying away from haram acts is what we should do.Lower your gaze from anything that is inappropriate (hijabless women, dancing, singing, drinking etc.) and is a hindrance to your faith. Read this for better concentration in prayers. http://www.al-islam.org/concentration_in_prayer/ Hope that helps.

  9. ok. but don't u need 50 posts for sending Pms?

  10. (bismillah) (salam) I am sorry Ayla for what you are going through. I hope everything gets well soon , InshAllah. Reading all your posts, I think your husband doesn't understand how grave your situation is. Maybe he has seen his parents or his Aunt and Uncle fighting and has just taken it to be something normal. I am not asking you to go back in your in laws' house, but I would suggest stop complaining to him and try to be nice when he comes over. Small efforts like hugging him or kissing his cheeks will work. When you do that, he will see that you are making an effort. Then when he hears something bad about you from his mother/aunt, naturally he will see how your in-law's are being mean to you. But along with that, don't give him the idea that you are fine living like this. Every two or three weeks you can ask him if he has found any solution. But I really think your daughter will be highly affected mentally and emotionally. Don't lock yourself up in your room and cry (not saying you do, just an example) . Raise your daughter as if nothing is wrong. Take part in her school activities, help her with her homework, cook something she likes, take her out for a walk in a park, and well keep her happy. I would also suggest trusting Allah (SWT) and being more close to Him. Imam Jaffer Al-Sadiq has said, " He who entrusts his affairs to Allah (SWT) is in eternal rest and constant carefree ease of life." Read interesting books and attend lectures. Reading about the signs of Reappearance of Imam Mahdi a.s. (ajf), always grows a curiosity in a person's mind, do that. Plus, there are some really good E-books on raising children. If you want, I can give you the links. Furthermore, when you share your feelings with someone that really helps. Call up an old trusted best friend and talk it out. Personally, the best friend that I completely trust is Imam Mahdi a.s. (ajf). He is not unaware of your situation, but do speak to him in an isolated place. Help the flood victims, that way you will realize, it's not just you in problems, it's a lot more people. I am sure you can donate to trusted organization for flood victims, I think the army people have something there, do they? And please do go through some articles on articles about similar issues. Here are couple : http://www.clinicals...dhoodTrauma.pdf http://nationalmarri...n-marriage.html http://www.traumaawa...s.org/id50.html Hope this helps.
  11. (bismillah) (salam) I didn't know much about him, until about a week ago. He seems like an amazing personality. I'll pray for his safety. InshAllah Allah(SWT) keep him safe and he wil be released. And if it is him in the hadith about the Sayyed leader, then InshAllah we will be a step closer to the reappearance of Imam Mahdi a.s. (ajf).
  12. (bismillah) (salam) My inspiration is the bright and beautiful Bibi Fatima a.s. . Reading her sayings and her biography my curiosity grew. I asked myself that if such an amazing woman, possessing all the blessings of this world and the hereafter, covered herself and was humble towards Allah (SWT), and what right do we women have to show off our incomplete beauty. Besides I had noticed men looking at women and that itself made me very uncomfortable. Soon enough, I realized without Hijab it's just physical beauty, which fades away with time, with Hijab it's both external and internal beauty. Lol, with Hijab it's beauty with brains (girls wearing scarves do look adorable don't they? :lol:) . So that is what basically made me want to observe Hijab. Hope this helps .
  13. (bismillah) (salam) Great post! JazakAllah.
  14. (bismillah) (salam) Jazak Allah! May Allah (SWT) bless you all. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me.
  15. (bismillah) (wasalam) If you can, please translate translate this into English. Otherwise I'll use Google Translator and then I'll have to spend 5 minutes trying to understand what it said. (It's weird.) JazakAllah. * Want to know what's the translation I got?
  16. (bismillah) (salam) In the English translation of Nahjul Balagha by Askari Jafari there is a profile of Imam Ali a.s. This is what is said about his description: "Imam Ali was a man of medium height with black, big and piercing eyes, very handsome and fair complexion, a broad forehead, a little hair on the top of his head, a long muscular neck, broad shoulders, powerful arms, broad chest, and strong hands." I think the chances of the Imam Ali a.s. looking like the man in the first image are very less. Hope this helps (not my opinion, the profile).
  17. (bismillah) (salam) Can anyone post the hadith please?
  18. (bismillah) (salam) Here's what I think would be helpful. God does what He wills. He has power over all things. He created everything, and He can do whatever He wants with it. More specifically , when He allowed or commanded the Prophets or Imams to perform miracles, it was to help people develop more faith in Him, and for the people to recognize the Prophets or Imams. Secondly, from what I understand of your question of not understanding how God or His attributes are infinite, dude! :lol: . God is infinite but human mind CANNOT grasp the true essence of Allah (SWT). He is beyond our understanding. I think Imam Ali a.s. said something similar in one of his sermons. Sermon 94 in Nahj al-Balaghah: "Exalted is Allah Whom heights of daring cannot approach and fineness of intelligence cannot find. He is such First that there is no extremity for Him so that He be contained within it, nor is there an end for Him where would cease." Hope that helps.
  19. Yikes!! Thank u! May Allah shower His mercy on you and keep you amongst the Shias of Ali a.s.!
  20. Ur welcome. :) Yeah, if the Holy Imam a.s. say so then it's a fact.
  21. JazakAllah. So they aren't available except in the VIP libraries.????
  22. (bismillah) (salam) I have 2 questions to ask. If anyone can answer them, I would be very grateful 1) I need to know if Shaykh Rajab Ali Khayat was an Usooli or not. 2) I hear that Imam Hassan Al-Askari a.s. wrote a whole book on the tafseer on Quran. Is this true? If yes, then is this available anywhere??? JazakAllah.
  23. (bismillah) (salam) I read this sometime a go on this website : http://www.ezsoftech.com/stories/imamhadi2.asp ---- During the time of Abbasid Caliph Al-Mutawakkil a lady claimed that she was Zainab the daughter of Fatimah (sa). Abbasid Caliph Al-Mutawakkil said, "Many long years have passed since that period when Zainab lived and you are quite young." She replied, "Yes, but the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) drew his hand upon my head and prayed for me to remain young for ever. As such, after every forty years I turn back to become young." Al-Mutawakkil called upon all the wise men to visit him and inquired from them, "What do you say about the claim of this women." All of them said, "she tells a lie." Al-Mutawakkil said, "I know that she is lying, but what proof and logic do you have to condemn her." They said, "We do not know, Imam Ali Naqi (as) should solve this problem." Al-Mutawakkil at once summoned Imam Ali Naqi (as) and told him about that matter. Imam Ali Naqi (as) said, send her to the cage of the lions, if she is telling the truth, because the beasts do not molest the children of Fatimah (sa) and do not eat their flesh. Al-Mutawakkil said to the woman, "what do you say?" She said, "This man wishes that I may be killed. If he is right then let him do it himself." Al-Mutawakkil said, "she is right, you must do it first yourself." Imam Ali Naqi (as) replied, "There is no hurdle to it" He went to the lions in the cage and sat among them. All observed with amazement, that the lions sat very respectfully before the Imam Ali Naqi (as) and sometimes caressed themselves against his body and he caressed their bodies with his hand, affectionately. When Imam Ali Naqi (as) ordered that they might move to a corner, all of them crept to a nook. Then Imam Ali Naqi (as) came out of the cage and went to Al-Mutawakkil and said, "Oh woman now it is your turn." The woman started crying and begging saying, "I told a lie, I am the daughter of such and such man, and wanted to play a trick and a hoax but it did not work."
