  1. Another date of Martyrdom of Imam Hassan AS is Safar 28. Condolences. https://www.al-islam.org/brief-history-fourteen-infallibles/fourth-infallible-second-imam#al-hasan-ibn-ali-al-mujtaba-peace-be-him
  2. 28th of Safar is the Death Anniversary of the Holy Prophet SA and the Martyrdom Anniversary of Imam Hassan AS. Condolences. The Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)&hp) is reported to have said: “Maintain ties with your kinship albeit by greeting.” [Al-Harrani, Tuhaf al-Uqul, p.57] :روي عن النبي (ص) "صِلُوا أَرْحَامَكُمْ وَلَو بِالسَّلام" [الحرّاني، تحف العقول، ص ٥٧] For more information about Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)&hp), click here.
  3. None of us had a choice on who our parents are, nor where we were born. We all go through tough times. Praying for everyone.
  4. In Iran, a father would never give his daughter a ghusl. According to Islamic burial procedures, a woman gives a female a ghusl and a man gives a male his ghusl.
  5. Salam. Ask him/her why the change of mind. It might be simply that he/she was worried about things moving too fast between you two, and needed more time to think about marriage and the adjustments that it would bring. If you don't ask, you will never know.
  6. To the guest who is using the guest username of a real person, your posts will not be approved. Please take note of the marriage advice above.
  7. Why don't you ask the person who said an Iranian marja is responsible for killing Mahsa why he jumped to the conclusion that she was murdered?
  8. She was not killed because she had bad hijab! Accidental death is not the same as murder. Why don't you want to wait for the investigation to come from Iranian authorities?
  9. IF you watch that video (not a video about the lady Mahsa), a woman who had pushed up her long sleeves and was showing her arms to men on motorcycles, while leaning toward them and shouting something abusive. An unknown man who was not in uniform, hit her and two other women, probably in response to whatever abusive words she was shouting. You cannot say that he was a member of the Morality Police. He should not have attacked those three women, however, it did happen. We condemn it, but it has nothing to do with the OP. Please don't post any video that has nothing to do with the OP. In past topics, we have had people posting violent videos from other countries, not even Iran.
  10. Some posts in this topic are getting very disrespectful toward the marja of others. If this continues, those posts might be removed and members can be warned. Please keep your words polite or the topic can be closed.
  11. Wait until people tell us that Pepsi and Coke are bad for you.
  12. They are both cola flavor, but there is a subtle difference. For some people, Pepsi is sweeter and Coke seems to have a slight tangy flavor.
  13. "Islam introduces to its followers a God who is the source of power and perfection; all signs and powers in the world persist by Him. His Knowledge, Will and Power surpass everything; no partner helps Him in governing the world; age, weakness, need, defect, destruction and death do not overtake Him; and He is the Supreme Power, the Supreme Knowledge, the Supreme Richness and the Supreme Perfection. Such is the God whom Muslims must believe in and all Muslims must aim at approaching. This is the most important mystery of development and of pure civilization of man, because: Principally, conceiving an infinite Power, a limitless Knowledge, a supreme Will and a perfect richness widens human mental horizons and insight and enables him to attain the highest magnanimous spirit of humanity ... this great spirit, when accompanied by effort and activity, will open the doors of prosperity and perfection to man. The first responsibility of any Muslim is, therefore, to know this domain of infinite Power, Knowledge and Grace. Man's second responsibility is to move towards this source of perfection and approach Him as much as possible. The degree of decency of any Muslim can be evaluated with regard to his proximity to Allah. We may approach Allah through approaching science, power, justice, mercy … the more we discover the mysteries of Nature and know the reality of the world, the more we approach the absolute knowledge and the source of knowledge, i.e. Allah. The more we can dominate the prevailing forces in Nature in order to increase the power and honor of the monotheistic community, the closer we get to the Divine Power., The harder we try to develop justice and to revive the social rights of the public, the nearer we are to the absolute justice of the Creator and finally, the more favor and service we offer to the people, the nearer we come to Allah, the Merciful." The excerpt above is from the book: A Few Words on Knowing Allah Get PDF https://www.al-Islam.org/few-words-knowing-Allah-Muhammad-Jawad-bahonar
  14. ‏إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّلِحَتِ سَيَجْعَلُ لَهُمُ ٱلرَّحْمَنُ وُدًّۭا ‎ Surely those who believe and perform righteous deeds, for them shall the Compassionate ordain love [Holy Qur'an 19:96]
  15. The previous post was removed. It not only contained violence but used profanity and a slur word. Stop posting links to reddit that contain vulgarity.
  16. If the other adults won't help you, consider "batch cooking" and freeze a lot of individual servings that they (or you) could take out and warm up, just letting them know how long to heat each portion. Or casually let them know that you have been googling "Raw Food Recipes" and that salads might be an option.
  17. Saturday, September 17 is Arba'een in the US and Canada. Safar 20 in your own country. Condolences.
  18. You were gone for a while. In an upgrade, ShiaChat added Achievement ranks. The more you participate, the higher you go up in rank. It's not easy to move up in rank, for example 3,000 points per level. If I remember right, every reply in a topic earns 5 points. Good luck!
  19. Some people might think that they are too sinful to make dua for themself. Please make duas for those who are hurting but too embarrassed to ask for help.
  20. Brother, please tell your Mother that you need to learn how to take care of yourself. Get her to agree that you need to leave home on some days to get job training. If you are still living in Milwaukee, contact your local Goodwill: Goodwill Southeastern Wisconsin (Goodwill SEW) Reach out to them and speak slowly and carefully, explaining what your disadvantages are (for example, if you have a mental or physical disability), such as learning disorder, Tourette's, cerebral palsy, autism, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, etc. Explain that you are an adult, but you need job training and you also need transportation to get to the training site. If you have never applied for a Social Security Card, maybe they can help you get that, because you need one to get a job. Save your money. Get a drivers permit and learn to drive a car before you buy one. Of course if you never plan on getting a car, you won't need to spend money for that, but taking the bus or getting a taxi, Uber or Lyft, etc. will be part of your weekly expenses, unless you know someone who can give you a ride. Praying for your success.
  21. Please do not report something you disagree with. Refute and bring your own evidence.
  22. Thank you for the duas. We all really need them.
