  1. Bismillah Asalam alaikum I sincerly apologize for not being online and missed your post in regards to Shabaan and holy Ramadan. First of all, I am in no position to be asked about what to tell people to do in these months. All I can do is convey what the scholars of Ahklaaq recommend us to do. I will continue this topic soon enough and will answer the last reply as well.
  2. Salam alaikum Im in need of a book designer for islamic books. Pls pm me so we can talk further.
  3. Any1 interested in a continuation of this post and topic?
  4. Muharram is around the corner.
  5. Any1 in here that tried out the recommendations in this post?
  6. Salam alaikum Bismillah I will inshallah continue, my dear family. I am unfortunately not good at the Spanish language.
  7. So when you the wayfarer want to travel towards God as this shoud be the goal and is the goal of everything, you need to start with something. Now once you have gotten the hand of true aqeeda, fiqh and etc. the place you start is here: Forgiveness For everything which you owe Allah. For everything which you owe people. This cannot just be done through istighfaar but you have to give back the rights of people. Agha Tahriri notes that praying the istighfaar prayer of the month of Zil Qada told by the prophet is excellent after this. Muraqibah and Muhasibah Keeping tight control with doing what is wajib and keeping away from what is haram. Keeping account of ones deeds. As Imam Ali says: "The wise must keep account for his faults in religion, belief, ethics and morals either in his chest or in a book and seek to improve and better himself." [Ghurar al Hikam n. 8927] In the begginung it might be a bit hard but with practice it becomes easier and one moves from being slow to being really good at keeping account of ones deeds. Doing Mustahab and avoiding Makrooh Doing at least the mustahab for prayers and at least the tasbih of Lady Fatima Zahra Praying on time Praying with the momineen in the mosque Reciting the Azan and Iqamah Doing the Taqibat of prayers Praying the mustahab prayers - especially Salat al Layl Reciting the Quran at least fifty verse a day Reading duas and doing zikr. The daily duas and the daily ziyaraat. ( the usual zekrs such as la ilaha, istighfar, salawat and etc. are fine other than that one must consult with his teacher such as Agha Tahriri, Agha Amini and get certain zekrs from these authentic individuals whom has the permission to teach and raise people) Tawasul, going to majalis and reading the daily ziyarat of ahlul bayt. They are quit short and can be ready easily during the day. Fasting without being too hard on one self. Like the first thursday in a month and the last and the wednesday after the half of the month. If there is more thirst we can continue inshallah.
  8. Obligatory duties Before even mentioning these the first thing we need to really focus on is that were doing all this to get closer to God and the only way to get closer to God is through worship. When we worship we must not imagine that we are worshiping a God thats something seperated from us but that God is closer to us: "...for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.[50:16] In fact God is: "... and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him." [38:72]. The main thing we need to do is to abstain from sinning. This no doubt needs us to know about the sins and a good book to start with is Greater sins by Martyr Sayed Dastghaib or Ayatollah Mishkinis book Muharramaat and wajibaat. Its all about keeping away from sins and doing what is obligatory. Daily prayers 5 times a day. If needed the Ayat prayers. Fasting. The rest will come slowly inshallah. Once these things are fixed one can continue. I need to sum up certain things in order so that I dont forget these things. Happiness and inner peace Basically we need to be happy and find inner happiness. What is happiness and what is inner peace? One way of explaining it is to say its the opposite of depression, sadness and stress. But we honestly dont need to tell people what happiness and inner peace is. Somewhere everyone knows and they also are eager to achieve it but end up doing different stuff to reach inner peace or to get happy. But for those out there who really think happiness is drinking, dancing, partying and stuff like this I know that its not happiness and so do they. Happiness is when you are at peace and feel great. Islam gives us guidelines in order for us to achieve this happiness and inner peace. Im really sorry im jumping short here but hopefully we will get back to happiness and inner peace later on. First we need to know what leads us to inner peace and happiness. "It is He Who sent down tranquillity into the hearts of the Believers, that they may add faith to their faith;- for to Allah belong the Forces of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is Full of Knowledge and Wisdom;"[48:4] Were nothing on ourselves and even the inner peace is granted to us by God. "But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart;" [26:88] The sound heart is the tranquil heart and the heart that has found inner peace. And let me be honest and frank. No music, no medicine, nothing else can grant this but if we focus on our sleeping habits, eating habits, working out and our duties towards God, family, people, friends and etc. BTW here is a secret between us. Nothing ruins it more than sinning. If we havent slept well we tend to be groggy more aggresive and more deppressed, just as food also can have this effect on us and lack of working out. If were not fit and heatlhy worship will be lazy, weighing tons, without concentration and happiness. In the wednesday prayers we ask God for happiness when we worship him. If we arent happy and mum tells us to clean up the dishes we might only clean up half of them or "clean them up" not so well. The same goes for worship. Without peace and happiness it would lack the important things such as concentration, focus, interest, motivation, spirit, spirituality and etc. If there are any questions pls let me know inshallah.
  9. Who is still up for a continuation of this thread?
  10. I will inshallah continue as soon as I find time. Meanwhile remember everyone in your duas during this holy month and dont forget those tiny tiny daily Ramadan Duas. If the arabic is difficult to understand just read the translations.
  11. (bismillah) Friends also do have certain rights upon us. And its necessary to have friends. Some of the criteria’s for friends are as follows: 1- Religious (they pray, they fast, they do their duties) 2- The have knowledge and wisdom of their faith and belief so their lack of this or doubts dont effect us. 3- Ethics and morals, they are polite, cheerful, helping, respect the elders... 4- helpful and act as a mirror for us, so that they tell us about or bad deeds and help us correct and better our self. 5- They should be wise and intelligent because dumb people might wish you good, but could end up hurting you instead. And we need to visit each other and give each other gifts even if it’s a quint or quince fruit. (Tib al Aimmah, Muhammadi Rayshari under Quince fruit) Now we only mentioned a couple of the criteria’s but having friends are important. Friends can either help us becoming successful or make us fall. Whether we like or we don’t its a reality that we will be affected by the perfume or the stank from our friends. And test your friends, their loyalty, and their beliefs, their practice, their viewpoints and etc. Now of course there’s no doubt that they aren’t masoom and infallible but to some extent we can find people with the Islamic mindset of reaching perfection through Gods commands such as prayers, fasting, zakat, good manners, helping others and etc. Test them through questions to find out about their beliefs. Test them when its time for prayers. Test them its time to eat halal. We shouldn’t just be befriending people because of their names such as Muhammad, Ali, Hassan, Hussain, Fatima, Zainab and think they are Muslims so all is well. No Saddam was named Hussain and sometimes our “friends” do have such great names but their beliefs, actions and deeds are far worse than those of Shimr, Hind and the rest of that gang. We have to admit we are social beings. And solitude is definitely not healthy for any of us. The narrations about the people of hell are well-known and how its filled with unmarried and single people. Sometimes we are social and happy but over the years we end up alone in solitude and don’t wanna visit friends, family or be social. This is something that needs to be cured and the cause of what leads to this is sinning which will lead to depression. Imam Sajjad: “If a person gets angry with you thrice and doesn’t say anything bad about you- take him as friend.” [Tarikh Yaqubi v.2 s.383] Imam Ali: “Whoever chooses a friend after properly testing him will have a lasting friendship with him” (Sharh-i-Ghurar wa Durar, v.5, pp.397-398.) Another important thing which cannot be stressed enough is to befriend a scholar. Not just a person with the clothes but someone authentic and verified. There are certain criterias for true scholars and we can go through that another time inshallah. Divide your friends like this: 1- Those we need all the time like nourishment. 2- Those who are a disease, like the foolish ones. 3- Those who are remedies and these are the intellectual ones. (Imam Sadiq, Risalatul Huqu) “Your Companion is neither astray nor being misled.” [The Holy Qur’an, al-Najm 53:2] 1- Befriend friends that are family people, who visit people and are social 2- Find friends that are intellectual. 3- Find friends with correct belief. Aqaid needs to be in place. God, Justice, Prophethood, Imamah, Qiyamah. 4- Find friends who practice their religion. 5- Find friends who don’t lie. 6- Find friends who will help others in need. 7- Find a friend whom invites you to the gatherings of a scholar. We need to put this kind of social time in our schedule so that we do have social time at least once a week. This means social time without the computer, phones, projects and etc. No just for relaxing, having fun (halal), enjoying life and Gods blessings. Inshallah next time we will go through the obligatory duties starting with where to start from.
  12. Is there still an interest to continue this topic or should we leave it till after the summer vacation?
  13. A humble piece of advice. Start with self building. Then if you can read 40 hadith with a verified teacher if possible.
