  1. Wa alaykom salaam, It is fine if you left it as such, but if you want to make it tahir (clean) you should connect a hose to kurr (large amount of water like you sink on cold) water and allowing the water to hit the blood (soaking it) then it becomes tahir (clean). Note: if there is some blood that is on and it is thick then you should remove that first by using a cloth. Hope this helps in sha Allah.
  2. I understand all your concerns and they are valid, certainly I will bring this up with admins on the group. I have also requested a signed and sealed letter from the shrine verifying our account is in fact with the shrine. As you said how do you know us, but same is how can we verify you entering our group. Another thing to point out is once you enter a group on WhatsApp you have already give information off throught your phone number that everyone can see. So if you so want to keep your information private better off not entering groups on WhatsApp. There are other groups on WhatsApp that you can join without, please feel free to do so. Condolences to you all on the marydom anniversary of Sayeda Zahra SA.
  3. The Imam redha AS shrines representatives own the group, I am also an admin to that group. The sister from Iran is the representative and she has never posed as a convert. When we fill out the fourm also one gets a gift from the shrine (it's clearly labeled from shrine) Yes the fourm is to keep sisters safe, we have had a few issues with people joining that were fake and to keep group safe we have requested that if you wish to be in the group you do fill it out. Again like the sister said on the group this is completely voluntary but if you decline you can not stay and again that's for safety reasons. Sorry you see our rules problematical to you but we gave you an option and you freely choose. Remember having an issue with a believer is something you should do privately. Allah bless you all. Sr. Zaynab
  4. Salaam alaykom, I urge all to be careful to accuse people without certain proof. This Instagram channel is a new one, her other account she choose to leave for some time. As for her non hijabi pic please rem this is a convert sister in which if someone wanted to slander and hurt her would clearly be able to pull these pictures from past. Now saying that I checked this so called chanel that's new and if you glaze throught her followers and following you may see something a bit odd... not going into it but I wouldn't take this as proof.. maybe a slander account to a modest sister. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help us all. Ya Rab Hasten the reappearance of Imam Mahdi!!
  5. Salaam alaykom, Ramadan Mubarak! Please check out my YouTube for Ramadan Qur'an reflections! Next one will be posted today and in description I will also leave the sister that is doing these with me so you may check her stuff out too, of course she is much more knowledgeable than I. So please forgive my shortcomings. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS42o4w16ZDR27qf1fS23ug Allah accept your amaals and fasts. Ameen.
  6. اللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ O Allah: (please do) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
  7. 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
  8. http://en.ifilmtv.com Not all on here is great but there are several with good moral meanings
  9. 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!
  10. Please watch as of course he has done a much better job!
  11. 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.

  13. Oh just a note my mother loves me cooking the meal, she can relax and enjoy the visit and get a little pampered too
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. Salaam alaykom If you find any good in our vid you may share.
  17. Wa alaykom salaam If you ever need someone to talk to please don’t hesitate. Through life we really need to remember Allah in all actions. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help us all on this straight path to Him!
  18. 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.

  20. Salaam alaykom wa rahmatullahe wa barakatuh Mubarak to you all for the wiladat of Prophet Muhammad sawa, and to those going to celebrate as well. Here is my video for the unity week hope it is beneficial in sha Allah.
  21. Salaam alaykom wa rahmatullahe wa barakatuh, Here is my first Quran reflection lecture I hope you enjoy. Bismillah
  22. Wa alaykom salaam wa rahmatullah JazakiAllah, and alhumdulelah I hope in sha Allah you have gained some knowledge from it. It is intresting that you ask this as I was just thinking that I should do a video for converts on words frequently used in our religion but they may not know. To answer your question ziyarat literally means to visit. So if you where going to you mothers house you could say you are doing ziyarat to her (you are going to visit her). There are different things one should do when performing ziyarat to the Holy people such as have respect for them and for others doing their ziyarat, there are duas to do and Quran to recite. For Lady Fatimah Masoomah SA here is the following link for dua https://www.duas.org/ziaratmasoomaqom.htm Other etiquette for it can be as following: https://www.duas.org/ziaratetiquettes.htm Hope this helps in sha Allah. Do let me know if I can be of assistance, maybe I have not answered it as you wanted... Fee aman Allah Sr. Zaynab
  23. Salaam alaykom and our condolences to you all! My 9 year old daughter khadija did a nice lecture on lady Fatimah Masoomah SA for her wafat today. Do give a listen and excuse her error in aribic words. Shukran! https://youtu.be/D499E2EmLLA
  24. Salaam alaykom, in sha Allah you may find some benefit from it. Do share if you find any worth. Fee aman Allah Sr. Zaynab https://youtu.be/ZkE18GQuWVg https://youtu.be/SUpKBG26_lA https://youtu.be/lJ0RqtRhYMI https://youtu.be/uevlytxAg94 https://youtu.be/t5IfTJZzlpQ
  25. Salaam alaykom After much thought on this subject before I have come to understand that we all have a desire to look good but the social media like fb and Instagram have taken this natural desire and turned it into a massive money making where the many likes is the game. It feeds into those not confident in themselves and need others to help bring them up or those who are arrogant are fed by the comments and likes. We should always be careful not to let shaytan trick us in getting many non mahram to view us, sometimes in a wrong way. It plays into the lust of many and the reality is that alone on the dark with Allah those people know the secret of their hearts. They took our natural desire and turned it ugly without religion. Those desires are suppose to be regulated by religion like looking good is good but it needs to be regulated for mahram. We naturally love beauty but we all need to watch carefully our own actions to help one another out. It's ok to be different, it's ok not to get 1000 likes, obey Allah is first! May Allah swt help us all to gain more taqwa. Ameen
