  1. Salaam alaykom, The answer I believe has already been given and she alhumdulelah has accepted the fatwa on this. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help you dear sister and may He grant you much blessings for you very humble and obiedant position to this situation. A note to shiachat: maybe there is a way to restrict personal opinion, and if someone if to give advise that is in need of marja this must be given not mire opinion. I know this is harder to implement but it would stop all the arguments amoung the members and cause a unity in sha Allah then causing hurt feelings and disunity. And to end my 2 cents admins have done a good job in improving shiachat, keep up the excellent work! Fee aman Allah Sr. Zaynab
  2. http://en.ifilmtv.com Not all on here is great but there are several with good moral meanings
  3. Alhumdulelah we continue to grow and are trying hard to assure safety and peaceful environment for converts only to come. The reason behind converts only is that we as a convert do understand what they are going through and we are wanting to ensure a correct understanding for them and a place to feel like everyone gets what they are going through and this will help them open up to feeling comfortable to asking questions they may have felt embarrassed to ask. I do hope you all understand in sha Allah. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect us and guide us on the straight path always! Ameen. Sr. Zaynab
  4. Salaam alaykom all, your very welcome and I pray this group does help in supporting converts. I am also a convert so I do know how it is. As for only converts this is correct and this is a group that everyone will truly understand each other and support each other, sorry. We strive hard to keep it a safe and peaceful environment so we support convert in their journey. JazakumAllah for your understanding. Fee aman Allah
  5. Salaam alaykom, Please join our convert group as we grow and learn together. A place to feel at home! https://chat.whatsapp.com/HCOa5FfDyES1oPOBdVJw40
  6. Wa alaykom salaam, Yes i have seen it practise a lot for material reasons, actually the story you shared (though not a fan of the source) showed just that.... kids asking a lie (santa) for many toys... I dont believe in lying to your child and Islam supports me in this too. How many watched our full lect? It's not just because of the materialistic things in Christmas it is that it is a religious holiday other than ours... and though we have very high respect for Prophet isa AS we can not promote and I encourage other religious holidays... and if you say it's for cultural thing well it does hold a lot of bad culture things as most holidays that are secularlised. I quote: “We follow Imam Ali, who told us to respect other cultures,” yes absolutley!! But that doesnt me we do them... it means we respect it but no need to conform to its ways, this is how we have and will lose our identity! I quote: "But just as it has for many secular Americans, the commercial appeal of Christmas has proved strong for many non-Christians here" so to conclude I dont believe I celebrating the holiday, however being respectful to this holiday in particular as it is a celebration of Isa AS is a must! We can have respect for sure and we should but it does not mean we go and do it! I hope I answered sufficiently if not I pray someone can for you. oh by the way I think it's perfectly find to return the holiday greetings! merry Christmas to our Christian neighbors and family!
  7. Please watch as of course he has done a much better job!
  8. Wa alaykom salaam Intresting observation however the brother explained it was a blessing from Allah I'm really not sur eif it historical point of the tree and that time. I did look into the date and put it into our presentation. I had at someone look at its chain and couldnt see a problem in it. I would say it is likely this was the day. Salaam alaykom I wasnt able to get this fatwa earlier but recieved it today and thought I'd share.

  10. Oh just a note my mother loves me cooking the meal, she can relax and enjoy the visit and get a little pampered too
  11. Did you get a chance to watch the video? We did discuss some of your questions I believe... we dont believe it was Prophets birthday so even if you intend this way then you are actually tending to the Christian faith and we as muslims aren't allowed. However if you have family then you should keep ties for sure with them! This may mean attend the Christmas holiday and this is totally fine as long as we dont go against our beliefs. Someone said their family do drink as long as you stay away while they do as it's not really good for yourself to be in this situation and you wont be allowed in fiqh to sit at the same table as them, this can be hard I really understand as it happen to us the last Christmas we attended. For convert it is very tricky at times I absolutely understand. I have had my share of time that's for sure. For myself I decided not to attend the big day and if possible I attend it with my parents at a different day where I bring the food (to keep it halal) and exchange gifts.
  12. Salaam alaykom I know some can not get YouTube, I was just given permission to upload on shiatv.net do please check it out if you couldnt from YouTube. https://www.shiatv.net/video/1973783562
  13. Salaam alaykom If you find any good in our vid you may share.
  14. Wa alaykom salaam If you ever need someone to talk to please dont hesitate. Through life we really need to remember Allah in all actions. May Allah swt help us all on this straight path to Him!
  15. Subban Allah I didn't think i would get this much critisim from my video however if educational we wish to discuss this i dont mind however i am a no body so I do highly highly recommend all of us to watch some more knowledgable scholars such as Shiekh Shomali I'll post a good one we can all start with to get better understanding in sha Allah. My low self will leave at this, that uniting on some grounds doesn't mean an absolute uniting as of course we dont always agree with each other, however while we argue to fold our arms or to put them down to our sides others are causing our major division which has resulted in very very horrible tragedies. So I leave this forum at this and i encourage all to seek these answers to more knowledgable scholars. May Allah swt help us all to become more educated in sha Allah. Salaam alaykom Unity is being together or at one with someone or something. It's the opposite of being divided. This is a word for togetherness or oneness. Even though we have our difference this should not divide us as a ummah. There is no need to become divided as the division causes only loss as we have clearly seen. Living in unity is not to start following their way it just means no division. No need to conform to their ways but we all believe in Allah and the messenger.
