  1. Salam. so this isn't really a question, I guess i just need to gossip about somebody and I dont know who to talk to because I dont want to talk behind other people's back. I figured it would be okay to post in here since everyone is anonymous so I was qualifying my clients for a house purchase because that's what I do for a living, I found out through their income and taxes that they were making over 100K a year in profit. They had a lot of cash in their home that was not claimed in their taxes. I got to know these clients from the shia community , they cooked food for Aba Abdillah for Ashura and they distributed it amongst the people in the community. My issue is that they used FOOD STAMP SNAP GOVERNMENT to buy the ingredients to cook the food and give it to people. They also owed the butcher guy money and they refused to give him. I asked how did they qualify for food stamp since they're not supposed to if they make this much.. They were like "oh we just applied and told them we don't have any money, it doesn't go into the system and no one will know" . i mean, is it even okay to cook for Imam Hussain using government money knowing that these people are super rich? Mind you, we were talking about million dollar transactions.. Anyways sorry for being mean. I know i should be minding my own business but this is bothering me. Did i just eat the food that was meant to be spent for actual poor people ? is the system that messed up that we can easily scam it ? also for those of you who aren't in the US, food stamp is a program that is given to low income people to help them buy food from groceries.
  2. What if someone took the Johnson&Johnson vaccine? Its not a mRNA one
  3. Which state are you in? Do you think you are qualified to buy a house? As long as you have a 2 years of work history, you can get a house , i can help with this. Yes most rental places require 3 x the income, but the real problem is that there aren't enough space in those apartments, I've had clients who paid for the application fee and never got a call back because not enough empty units . I wouldn't mind living in a motel if i was a single man who carries, but its not suitable for women or families with kids. you can find a private landlord too going back to renting an appartement, how much can you afford to pay? I know places that are flexible with the income criteria. Message me so i can work something with you
  4. This looks extremely interesting! Go women in engineering! I'm sure you'll get picked for the remote position . Sending prayers
  5. Did you get the job? and congratulations on passing
  6. In regards to the community, you don't need to join a mosque. I'm born-shia, living in the USA now and I've been secluded from all mosques, i completely understand when you say that they're not welcoming if you're not "from them" , i can relate .. plus, its covid so you don't want to mix with people either. Shiachat.com is a great online community and you'll always feel welcomed here
  7. That's so cool. Where can i get a special ring like that?
  8. Yes this article speaks some truth. May Allah guide us all in the straight path
  9. Married is almost considered as a form of worship. It is highly recommended if not wajib in some cases. Just make sure you marry the right person
  10. I'm not active on social media much, but i run Facebook ads
  11. You'll make a great lawyer. I see you're very determined and you are so passionate, you will find a way to make it to law school. (Lawyers are good liars too ;) lol jk!) Im not too familiar with the British education system but your whole story would make a good scholarship application. If i was the judge, i would grant you the scholarship especially seeing that you've done your best to convince your parents and you've shown them you had control financially. I don't think your parents have a problem with you going into law school, I think they had a problem with the cost involved with it. Just keep doing whatever you are doing. You'll get there and they will be proud of you on your graduation
  12. Today was my love's birthday!!! Love him so much! ❤️❤️❤️ He runs behind me and calls me "Mama" . My baby just turned two
  13. Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to your grandma too! may you live a long and healthy life with many more birthdays
  14. Salam sister! Hope you are well. I can't seem to access the sisters forum. Would you mind sending me the password on PM? Thank you :)

    1. Hameedeh


      @-Enlightened Salam, Sister. The Sisters Forum and the Brothers Forum are temporarily closed for maintenance. Not sure when the Site Admins will open them. Mods and Forum Admins don't have the passwords. 

  15. This verse would be recited during Salat Al ghufayla between the Maghrib and Isha. It is a 2 rakaat prayer to ask Allah for help. http://www.duas.org/gufaylah_new.htm
  16.  There used to be at least 300 online members online back in 2010, now there's just 5. Where did everyone go

    1. Cool


      Some got banned and perhaps most were not ready to listen to the objections raised here by shia & non-twelver on shia religious practices.

      I think most people are not willing to do extensive research for finding the truth. They think that what they believe and are doing, is the truth.

      This site is a best learning site I have ever seen, specially for twelver shias. 

  17. I just had aloo tikka burger for Take-out ! Its the indian version of Vegetarian Burger.
  18. Lol the paycheck it's 2.5% to 3% of the home price. I'm usually good with selling 1 home a month or once every 2 month. It covers the bills
  19. Im a real estate agent. Easiest money I've ever made lol. You can consider that too i can pray whenever i want, i can chose to work with who i want too and where i want. i finish everything online
  20. Im very sorry to hear about the passing of your relatives. Stay Safe. I had the honour of doing the walk in 2015 and in 2016. I also did the run in Twareej in Karbala during Ashura.
  21. You need to fill in an application and send it to the iraqi embassy in Washington DC by mail with your passport so they can stamp a visa for you. Visit this link for more information http://www.iraqiembassy.us/page/visas-to-iraq
  22. I ordered this and it should come tomorrow. I was looking for a book like this everywhere. I was making google searches for Ahadith regarding the Mahdi and only sunni sources were appearing. Anyways Thanks!
  23. Yes in Raleigh,NC there is a supermarket with a few Iraqi restaurants nearby mostly Shia. Also in Charlotte , the Zahra islamic center
  24. Some scholars believe that it a forbidden act per fair that you may worship the prophet , that's why in ancient mosques, there are only calligraphies and not drawings , but i still like the shabe-e me'raj drawing that was made in teheran (the one that Yoel just posted).
