  1. Isn't cursing negative? Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) commanded Prophet Musa AS to go to Firaun (Pharoah) and say: "And speak to him a gentle word, perhaps he may take heed or fear." [Holy Qur'an 20:44]
  2. Some guests and some members don't think cursing is the same as disassociation. He wanted to ask a question and receive the answers from the two maraja (Ayatullah Sistani and Ayatollah Khamenei) who probably have the most followers, which would mean something in his estimation.
  3. @Hadi5 Thank you for the two links. Does Dr. Farrokh Sekaleshfar talk about cursing some of the sahaba?
  4. Twice in this thread you mentioned that Ayatollah Khomeini RA said Shias are misguided. Rather than saying "so and so said something about Imam Khomeini and he wouldn't lie", please post a link to Ayatullah Khomeini's own writings or speeches. Otherwise, you are spreading a rumor.
  5. You saying that Ayatullah Sistani is consistent is supposed to mean that Ayatullah Khamenei is not? Na'oozibillah. Sister, the Holy Month of Ramadan is not always 30 days to be consistent; sometimes it is only 29 days, according to the moon sighting where you live.
  6. If she is eating it on a piece of bread or by a spoon, it might be her gagging reflex to the thickness of the honey. Has she stirred the honey in tea or water?
  7. Other than starting this controversial thread, the OP has not engaged in the discussion. ^ This is the reason the topic is still open.
  8. Cursing is not allowed at ShiaChat. We all need to treat other members and guests with respect. The link posted -- in a reply above -- goes to a blog and whoever runs that site has posted their own view. If members here cannot refute it, then please ignore it. I'm not going to remove that post or the link, because the link has been posted as a reply in many other topics over the years. Every marja has an opinion on what Tabarra means and how it is expressed. In some countries it is expressed as "I am disassociating myself from those who are the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), the Holy Prophet SA and the Ahlul Bayt AS." In some communities it is expressed as "extreme displeasure" or "aloofness" or "shunning". In other countries, it might be very harsh words, especially where Tabarra agitation occurred in the past. Most of us cannot really understand what it feels like to live in Southeast Asia where Shias are physically under attack. Due to circumstances, for them Tawalla and Tabarra are a family tradition and way of life, so they will staunchly defend it to the death. I would hope that the rest of us would keep them in our duas.
  9. Going to focus on what I can do, not on what I cannot do.
  10. Dreamcatcher, Brother @Reza already gave you the short reply on why you cannot have the "table" view at this time: Now for the long reply: The Admins began discussing the 4.2 upgrade on March 24, 2017, and there were many changes for the better that we enjoyed discussing. On April 23 we started discussing the fluid view. The 4.2 upgrade was going to be available in the summer of 2017. The upgrade was a really interesting and exciting thing for all of us. On June 3, Br. Reza created a topic in the Development Forum to inform Mods, Development Team, and Chat Mods about the 4.2 upgrade. All of the Team members could view the information about the upgrade and many wonderful features, and we had the same information that Dreamcatcher posted in the link above, about the option to choose your own view (table, grid or fluid). We were waiting on the upgrade to become available to us to install, and wondering when the Owner could find time to do it. We discussed that it had to be done by mid September because we didn't want to be going through any changes and reporting problems and fixing them during the Holy Month of Muharram, in late September that year. Alhamdulillah, Br. @Ali upgraded the Site on August 12, 2017. Right away Team members asked to make changes in the brightness of colors, the boldness of the text, etc. Br. Reza, Br. Ali and Br. @Abbas. were replying to Team members and making changes to accommodate. Of course everyone was informed about the upgrade and members began to comment on the things they liked, but some reported bugs to be fixed. Br. Reza spent a lot of time replying to explain the 4.2 upgrade because for at least six months he was keeping up-to-date on all the upgraded features. Two days later, on August 14, Br. Reza told the Team members that the personal option to choose your own view (table, grid or fluid) was no longer available because he noticed that the chatbox and the ad banners were not visible unless the site was in the fluid view. So, by necessity, the fluid view became the default view at that time, even though a few members opposed it, because the chat and the ad banners are essential parts of the Site.
  11. Hmmm. I am wondering why is a new member insisting on changing our site layout, especially since this new layout was an experiment that was instituted and installed before you even joined.
  12. If the crescent moon is sighted on Ramadan 29 (during the sunset of Saturday, May 23, 2020), then today is Shawwal 1, Eid al-Fitr. Stay tuned for moonsighting reports for your own location. See posts in the latter pages of this thread: https://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235066185-holy-month-of-ramadan-2020-1441/?do=findComment&comment=3285129
  13. Today is the 29th day of fasting for those who live in North America. Pray, make duas, read the Holy Qur'an and do tasbeeh (prayer beads). Worship Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) as much as you can. If the Holy Month of Ramadan is only 29 days this year, today might be the last opportunity to worship in this holy month of blessings. May Allah accept all your religious observances. Dua for last 10 Days / Nights: http://www.duas.org/mobile/Ramadan-dua-last-10-days.html https://www.al-islam.org/supplications-month-ramadhan/supplications-last-ten-nights-holy-month Another Dua that you can read after every prayer in the Holy Month of Ramadan: Salawat Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem O Allah! Introduce happiness to the people of the graves, O Allah! Feed the hungry to their satisfaction, O Allah! Clothe the naked, O Allah! Defray the debt of every borrower, O Allah! Change our grief to comfort, O Allah! Return the way-farers to their homes, O Allah! Release the Captive, O Allah! Rectify the misdeeds of the Muslims, O Allah! Cure every diseased person, O Allah! Satisfy our wants with Your wealth, O Allah! Alter our wretched condition to happy condition, O Allah! Defray our debts and free us from our wants, Surely You are over every thing Powerful. Salawat
