  1. Salam I heard in Iran, they dont have McDonald, but they have MashDonald dont have Pizza Hut, but Pizza Hat what about social websites like Facebook etc Hopefully there will be an Islamic version of Facebook in the future. Free from bad advertisement, bad pages etc I learnt that Pakistan have this so call Muslim Facebook : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MyMFB But unfortunately it lacks many features. Those who have the knowledge to build websites, maybe you can pursue this goal - at least with the objective to provide a better environment for our young generation to interact with each other In order to be independent of Zionist/West product . To provide alternative is a must. Children loves movies. But movies/anime/dramas usually contains inappropriate elements. But as parents we couldn't just say, you cannot watch anything. But we have to provide alternative. And alhamdulillah I have found the solution for this. Which is .. Filtered Movie Collection (The movies are filtered using software and now they are healthier to be watched, inshaallah) Now what about social websites? What is the alternative? Another example : games. Nowadays children love to play games on android (handphone). The games are often downloaded from the Google Play. Unfortunately most of the games contain indecent advertisement. So i try to find an alternative . At least to provide better environment. One of the solution is GBA games (which can be played on android) and yes, there are no advertisement pop up so i guess this can be an alternative for them . Some parents also set up password therefore preventing access to use apps on android.
  2. Thank you for sharing the parenting lecture. Hope you could share more lectures on the same topic
  3. Thank you. For showing concern in this matter. Children are in need of such parents.. to protect their spirituality..their souls.
  4. Salam, That's why we are in need of good entertainment. If we cannot provide safe entertainment, then surely our kids become more vulnerable. Shiasource website provides some islamic movies. For other movies, you can filter them yourself and remove immoral parts by using software, before you let your kids watch it. This website, for example, is one of the efforts done by our brother to provide healthy movies. Try to check it out. http://koleksifilteredmovie.blogspot.com/ The best of shield is ultimately Taqwa. So lets train our kids to be righteous and lower their gaze before anything that may pollute their hearts..
  5. TQ for sharing May Allah help us to be what He loves us to be اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ May Allah includes us among the true helpers of Imam Zaman
  6. Salam, If both of you are serious to marry each other, then i guess it's best to tell her your faith. Better to let her know before marriage. See her reaction first. To preserve marriage between the same sect still is something challenging, so what can we expect from marriage of different sects. Yet, like Imam Khomeini have said, no sect is better than the others except piety. Clearly pious Sunni is much better than corrupt Syiah. But again, in marriage, we try to avoid differences as much as we could in order to make sure the marriage remains stable.
  7. Salam, If I'm not mistaken, according to Ayatullah Khamenei and Ayatullah Sistani, if we travel after Zuhur, then we can continue fasting. One of our brothers on this site has shared this following fatwa before: Sayyed Ali Al Khamenaei's ruling: "Whoever is present (in their hometown) and travels, then if before noon (thuhur), then they have to break their fast, and if after noon, they have to continue fasting and it is deemed correct." Sayyed Al Sistani: 1730. If a fasting person travels after Zuhr, he should, as a precaution, complete his fast.
  8. Salam, Some have said that fish with scales is Halal because they accepted the Wilayah of Imam Ali while the others didn't. But to what extent this claim is true I'm not sure myself. Because from this claim, one question may arise: Do animals like human and jin, have the ability to think and therefore make their own choice..? So i wont hold this argument strongly. Rather, I will choose the scientific explanation which has proven that fish with scales are more healthy for our body compared to the one without scales. Try to google it, inshaallah you may find this research. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ May Allah includes us among the true helpers of Imam Zaman
  9. Salam, If i'm not mistaken, according to Islamic calendar definition, new day starts when we its time for Maghrib, so on that account wouldn't it be considered as the first Salat of the day..? اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ May Allah includes us among the true helpers of Imam Zaman
  10. Salam, thank you for sharing this beneficial video, May Allah bless you brother
  11. Salam, if my brothers read this, surely they will feel upset, while i try my best to promote unity among them but if this is the way you guys look at things, then it will just make it worst. we should treat our muslim brothers with justice, love and kindness. that's what our Prophet taught us. This kind of suspicious behaviour and hasty generalisation definitely won't help us to find solution..... hope we can follow the example of the ulama in this video.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9UFe6MbTNs
  12. Salam, if i post this and share with my friends, they will most probably argue like this, what you get this news from iranian channel..? don't you know iran cannot be trusted..? for all of this time iran has been killing our brothers in Syria
  13. Salam to all : a message from a friend I would like to recommend a software c alled k9 Web Protection which i think is very good and i give it 5 stars for its remarkable function. Its free for home-users. This software helps us to block any improper website such as the one that contains elements like pornography, violence, adult content etc This software will give you the option to modify its setting. You can add any website that you think should be blocked and you can add any website that you think you should be allowed. This software is more effective than the method of changing the DSN which only block some websites - not really effective So yes, when you install this software, you are required to get the license, and the license will be sent to your email and complete the setup process. After the setup finish, you will see that you can no longer access Youtube, but don't worry you can modify the setting and browse Youtube in safemode. It just awesome alhamdulillah. you can access Facebook but you know that Facebook always has this pop-out sort of advertisement , but this can be solved inshaallah by installing the Adblock. Adblock :https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom So what are you waiting for spread this message, and download the software here: http://www1.k9webprotection.com/getk9/download-software By taking these steps of precaution, then.... inshaallah, the fulfillment of your dream to provide for a purer environment for yourself, and your family, children etc, will increase dramatically - from 2% to 89% (",)
  14. Salam, thanks Dr for the reference, inshaallah it would be beneficial for everyone including me. i need to study more on this issue, thanks again for the reference, and let's forgive and forget.
  15. Salam, my dearest sis The above suggestion sound good to me, try it out The situation is indeed very challenging, but you can go through it with Patience and Prayer! Allah is The Best of Helper! Oh my, almost every day I pray to Allah, O Allah! please help all the single muslim men and women to get married early! So that they may protect their chastity easily and attain the highest level of spiritual perfection.... My heart bleeds to hear that so-called religious parents make marriage difficult for their children...So Sad... :cry: While i'm trying my best to make marriage easy for them and trying to change the mindset of parents nowadays.. My dearest sis, I believe that you are not a small kid who doesn't know what is right and what is wrong I see you as somebody who is matured enough to think what is best for you I trust you and pray that Allah will help you to make the best of decision And yes, your father may have the reasons why he acted in that way, but truly it is not islamic at all, and i can see the reason why you don't approach your father at first, it's because you can predict what will be his reaction later on.. Yet, we do acknowledge that without family support in marriage, it's extremely difficult, what can we do now is to pray that Allah will soften your father's heart, And yes, i can see that your friend is a good friend coz he seems to be willing to give up you because he doesn't want you to face difficulty in the future though within his heart truly appreciates you Sorry for my bad advice or recommendation i just quite upset to see the way parents behave nowadays....while we are struggling to save our youth from spiritual corruption by advocating them to get married, the parents seems to be oblivious of this and acting selfishly, thinking of reputation etc, :cry: Even though you wish the best for your daughter, but at least consider their feeling and accept the reality that they are human being too, has feeling and wish to be respected too Keep praying my dearest sis, and May Allah help you As for me i will keep praying that Allah help and ease your difficulty and gives the best for you! Salam
  16. alhamdulillah, great to hear that White Skies :) me too having about the same experience, after reading a few books at this website www.al-islam.org, wow, i feel as if i have transformed into a new person (in a positive sense :D) Alhamdulillah, but yeah i'm sure our dear sister here already have the spirit of Islam and we can see from the way she's trying her best to struggle towards Allah- alhamdulillah, and yep we are here too trying our best to share , inshaallah may Allah grant us goodness in this world and the hereafter :) Mustafa, yep agree with what you said, we should help each other out to attain success i.e. to attain Allah's pleasure, if we find somebody who kind of lagging behind, then we should help them to join us (unless he keeps refusing-well what can we do-at least we try our best to help) and yep, we should encourage each other to keep striving towards Allah, good point bro :) Hayati, i love this words of yours : "I do not want a husband, I want a soulmate who is my best friend" lovely + wonderful + accurate + what else can i say? :D wish everyone success,
  17. Bismillah, agree with what you said bro monad and yep i kind of understand how do you feel sis, maybe because i'm in the same situation? :) people sometimes may call us extreme (coz the limitation of interaction observed), may call us nerd (sit at home all the time -just an example) may call us weird, alien, monster etc and just to focus on that situation can cause me to get a headache :) but yeah, as long as Allah is pleased with us, everything's fine, and yep that's what i always try to remind and convince myself whenever i feel being isolated from society feeling loneliness without partner, wishing to get married with "soulmate" - these are natural feeling, and just like you said the problem is, it's hard to find that soulmate for corruption is everywhere in the society but remember inshaallah every problem has its solution :) for example if you feel bored, go n find some books to read, join intellectual discussion online, at the same time interacting with different of people, expressing yourself, your opinion, make friends, i tell you my hobby is having discussion, coz through it i have the chance to interact with variety kind of people, sharing opinion, increasing knowledge, widening perspective etc, and at the same time i busy myself reading books , esp the islamic one, there are plenty to be read, fiqh, spirituality, history, biography of ma'summen (plenty to be read coz i just realize how ignorant i am lol) etc. and once you jump into this ocean of knowledge you will never feel bored, inshaallah (at least that's what i feel) :) but of course interacting with people is important too, (coz we are human-we love to socialize) so yep join online discussion, making friends, make connection with others, etc, inshaallah your life will be colourful oh regarding marriage, i suggest you to join matrimonial website such as this shiamatch.com, shiaspouse.com, singlemuslim.com hey, who knows we may find our soulmate there, nothing's wrong to give a try :) if you feel lonely, come and chat with me dear sis! :D salawat, *by the way sis, i'm proud of you, as if i can see how much you are struggling to please Allah, by lowering the gaze, avoid unislamic social gathering etc, may Allah reward you , and yep He will give nothing but what is best for His servant especially the one who keep struggling to get closer to Him :D
  18. Bismillah, salam to all and yep i believe that it's easier for youth to find their partner now that we have online matrimonial websites, fuh it's indeed difficult to be "middleman" to connect to people together. first we need to collect data from my Shiite friends men and women, then we need to find which of them might having a high degree of compatibility before we can introduce them to each other, fuh just imagine if we have 20 names on the list, it's a heavy task indeed so yeah alhamdulillah, by having such website, it's easy you know, they can see each other profile and it's up to them to contact their potential partner whenever they have the interest to do so, and yes it's more direct, therefore less risky of having misunderstanding, hmm i received many request from shiamatch.com, but most of them are pakistanis, i'm searching for malay people coz i can't move out to other countries, yes, tell your friends about this, the more participants the better, coz there will be wider opportunity to search for the best potential partner! :) with the prayer of success, siti
  19. Salam, Alhamdulillah, thanks for the thread everyone, yep after reading this, my understanding on mut'ah is much deeper, and yep it is mustahab, to OP, just proceed with ur intention and may Allah bless you always :) to KingPomba : i'm very much impressed that someone like you who don't believe in religion can have such understanding such high respect about morality, about being good etc, i'm just impressed because now i can see more clearly how Allah has created human being and regards him as the most perfect creation, and you are such example! being deprived of faith, yet you have such understanding, and care , -and i can see this is none other but the result of Allah's Wisdom Who has endowed human being (you and I) with intellect, the power of reasoning, the desire of being good and desire to attain perfection in all aspect of life esp. morality. wow, what a great Creator Allah is ! but , brother, despite of having this intellect, reasoning, desire to be good etc, we should admit that we have weakness in many aspects. And this weakness surely will influence our decision-making and the way of thinking. Now, the question is, do we realize that we have weakness ? Can we identify that weakness? I can see that me as human being who has been endowed with soul, with intellect and reasoning. Yet, i can't guarantee that my understanding, my perception is perfect. How could i make such claim when the fact is my knowledge of the unseen is limited, my comprehensive understanding of the true reality is limited, etc etc And that's why we need religion that is well-designed by The All-Wise, All-Knowing Creator Who has this complete knowledge of everything. Yep. Hey, I was an atheist too, but, once i realize, and learn the fact about my limited capacity, then finally i turn to religion, and Islam is the perfect religion. What is the proof? Mut'ah is one them :D Mut'ah reflects the mercy, the wisdom, the kindness of The Almighty, indeed it's a blessing :) siti
  20. Salam, yep, here got another websites, :D 1. http://www.shiamatch.com 2. http://www.shiaspouse.com brother Saleh, personally i haven't tried it, but you can read the success stories there, and yep inshaallah through this website, we are able to find potential partner easily hmm..what can i say, before this i play the role as marriage bureau, and it's really challenging because we need to collect data manually from people, match them manually, follow the process etc, etc, but here, through these websites people are able to search directly, no need to have the "middle men", and yes inshaallah can avoid the risk of misunderstanding as well how i wish to see many people to get married so that they can complete their deen and get closer to Allah, come n join ! :D with the prayer of success
  21. salam, Alhamdulillah :) may Allah grant all of success to get closer to Him... thanks 4 sharing the stories n congratulation! May Allah grant u the strength to maintain n keep improving the relationship with Imam!
  22. salam, bro first step, 1. try to count the blessing Allah has showered on us second step 2. once we realize Allah's infinite mercy, then, the seed of love will be cultivated in our heart thirdly 3. keep pondering and remembering Allah's special gifts and if you ask me what is the best gift He bestowed on me : no.1 : the light of Islam no. 2 : the light of ahlulbayt no. 3 : parents who are loving no. 4 : siblings who have good manner no. 5 : having sustenance, no.6 : good friends no. 7 : perfect human body no. 8 : opportunity to seek knowledge no. 9 : having intellect n reasoning no. 10 : having library - this is my paradise no. 11 : having the sense of thankfulness - this is also a gift from Allah ! the quran, the prophet, the ahlulbayt, guidance etc, all are gifts from Him as well :) life is gift too, without life, imagine what would happen, by being alive, i have the opportunity to improve myself towards perfection, i have the opportunity to perform amal, i have the opportunity to seek forgiveness, have the opportunity to serve Him, etc , etc having house, security n peace etc etc, etc etc, try to count all those blessings, and the love will surely grow once the seed of love is there, don't neglect it, but nurture it by continuous gratitude, and the tears will start falling down once we realize how generous our Lord is inshaallah, good luck! siti
