  1. Walaikum asalam and thankyou for the answer.. But you are investing a certain amount..and it can also go down..just like stocks..so there is no guarantee of a return as there is in riba... One could also lose money.. just like if they invest in stocks..could go up or down... And i dont think the investors are Jewish..almost every other person has invested in either bitcoins or alternate currencies.. the big few might be Jewish or any other..but the majority of the people are from all kinds of backgrounds including Muslims.. the exchanges have also flourished in Islamic countries...basically one is investing in a new technology that one believes has a future..
  2. As salam alaikum, Based on all my research,I have come to rhe conclusion that bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrencies fall very much into the halal category.. If investing into stocks and using multiple currencies is halal, plus the fact that there is no guarantee of return..so definitely no riba..this is an investment into latest technology and the price of the investment would demand on the supply and demand analysis For someone who believes in the future of the blockchain technology as well as other methods coming out to ease payment transactions etc etc, its a pretty normal thing. However,on one of my Fiqh whatsapp groups today the cleric has said that Ayatollah Sistani doesnt permit this...though I havent seen anything anywhere else about it..rather, I have seen numerous discussions promoting it on this forum as well as other Islamic links etc..i mean,its pretty much like any other stocks...and bitcoin specifically is used as a medium of exchange accepted by thousands worldwide as well now..and ripple for exampls is another technology token that is being used in many banks (including in Muslim countries) to speedup transfer etc.. Could someone provide any further details to clarify this? In addition,bitcoin mining is another issue I wanted to confirm is halal.. as you are providing a service..you are buying machines that do the complex algorithms and calculations to serve the blockchain, and you get paid for the result...while you dont have to physically do any labor, but you are investing in the machines that do it, and therefore get paid for providing this service. Can someone please shed further light on this? Do we have any inputs from marajas now that this has started becoming more mainstream..im sure someone would have checked? JazakAllah

    Hajj 2017

    JazakAllah brother!... (PS I'm a sister) - really hope to hear something soon inshaAllah.. it is for me and my husband, and we are both outside Canada at the moment, but need to go from Canada.. Thankyou!
  4. Salam all, I had posted on the Community forum but I guess it seems to be the wrong place to post since there are no responses. Can anyone please advise urgently on Hajj groups from Canada?Or anyone I can call who organizes this? I haven't been able to find any Shia kafilas going from Canada - am currently outside the country but need to organize this at the earliest possible. I have noted that all the Sunni travel agents etc, have posted their packages, but no idea of Shia packages as yet? JazakAllah
  5. The issue is that I'm not in Canada at the moment, so need something online or someone I can call over the phone... so relying on any reliable person I could talk to about the groups? Unfortunately I do not speak Farsi:( - either english or urdu
  6. Valid point...but hajj is wajib...??? Its a dream to be able to visit the House of Allah...isn't it? Can anyone please advise a reliable shia kafila from Canada?

    Room Required - Dubai

    Salam, Check the location of the conference and try to find something within that area, within a budget preferably. Depending on where you are coming from, taxi can be a bit expensive. Metro is the best way to move around. Peak times are a mess (7am to 9.30 am and 4pm to 7pm - depending on location)
  8. Salam all, I wanted to know what are the most reputed Hajj organizers to go this year? And have they started their packages (I noted that most Sunni places have started offering it). I am having a bit of an issue finding more information on this, if someone can help - atleast to get an idea of the prices, arrangements, dates, etc. I haven't moved to Canada yet but planning to very soon inshaAllah.. so I do not have any personal contacts there as yet... though want to try to do Hajj if possible asap as this is my only option. JazakAllah for any help.

    Salam.. Anyone? Is Eid on Tuesday or Wednesday in Denmark? And is there any mosque doing anything for it? JazakAllah

    Anyone in Copenhagen/Rome?

    JazakAllah to both of you - Can you all please let me know if there is any Eid event in Copenhagen during this week? and anything else on Tuesday/Thursday like the duas etc. I would also like to know if the area I am living in is safe for Muslimah hijabis, so any advice on that would be great. Any sisters around who will be attending this mosque? I went on their website - the mosque looks impressive but I am not able to find much info on the events.. even on their fb page nothing about Eid as yet.. Thankyou

    Anyone in Copenhagen/Rome?

    Salam all, I'm from the Middle East and might need to travel for a while to these countries so just wanted to know - do we have any shia communities in these countries in case it is possible for me to go there? JazakAllah
  12. Also...any advice if i am forced to take part in rituals? Would you suggest to just do them and get done with it?
  13. I agree with all your points..but it is due to past experience that I am so worried... maybe Im just afraid because I felt the post isn't general enough...again, due to past experience...so even if i have an option to edit a bit, I would prefer to do that...because it seems that edit option has disappeared for my 1st post. And i would love to hear more on the stars, luck and pessimism in islam...so many things playing on my mind, and the toughest part is maintaining that delicate balance between keeping the parents happy yet not compromising on deen....Alhumdulillah on face value they say they accept it...though i know they are so badly hurt because of me emotionally (and its been yearssss but they still try to dissuade me)..and then its a new little issue daily...which adds up... And then there are consequences that i worry about by posting this on a forum...lol So would it be possible to atleast edit?JazakAllah
  14. Thankyou..wanted this response.. dear moderators can you pls delete this post...urgently due to safety and security issues..JazakAllah
