    YariAzQuran got a reaction from Muslim96 in What Is Taraweeh   
    Awesome sources indeed AlAjal.
    But you know, although taraweeh is definitely bid'ah, and I don't mean to take that lightly at all, at least they have some hardcore dedication. In that, as the Sunni brother mentioned, for something optional, they sure do get a hell of a lot of people to come to it and participate in the masjid and prayer. Comparing it to Shia communities, its sad to see so many more Sunnis dedicated to something that's not even part of the religion than with what we have, which often goes ignored.
    I remember going to a Sunni masjid as a kid at night, and there would be basketball and football every night for the kids to play, and it was amazing. i went there recently and they had a youth lounge for the youth, small circles of discussion with people just chilling, and no main program. And its not a numbers thing either for the amount of people, its the ratio in general. Prof. Takim documents this in his Shi'ism in North America. iA we can build better communties with more than just speeches and dua.

    YariAzQuran got a reaction from starlight in He Asked Her Hand, Just Before Me...   
    Like I keep reiterating, no need to attack - whatsoever. Our role models taught us better than that, and it's disappointing for me to see such ethics from a man that dons the name and picture of a man like Sheikh al-Mufid (and also an admin/representative of the standards of a site for Shias).
     
    In regards to your comment, the poster mentioned that he was planning on proposing to the girl and that he scheduled to do so but by the test of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, his brother (whom apparently he had no idea was interested in the same girl) proposed to her the day before his plan. It's obvious that a few important details are missing, but it's clearly not just a 'crush' as you paint it out to be.
     
    I don't have any other specifics on his situation or the person, and presumably neither do you. So although I agree with you in your end point and advice to him, you're delivery mitigates the good that can come from such advice since you are not close to him. Would you speak to someone like that if the random brother approached you with the same question in the flesh?
     
    I recommend introspection on your post, brother. Compare it as it is and, as an admin of Shiachat and bearer of Sheikh al-Mufid, how it should be. We often see posts like these and think to ourselves how ridiculous they might be based on our knowledge and experience (as applied to the very limited description that is provided by the OP), so we answer them condescendingly because we think of what the obvious (to us) answer is and also because it's the internet. But the situation might not be as black and white as we think. Regardless, we must treat others as how we ourselves would like to be treated (if you are knowledgable, then how you would like to be treated by other knowledgable people), and to also not be sucked into the virtual reality that is the internet so that we can retain the standards that the Ahlulbayt left for us.

    That's probably true, but shiachat should be a community that people are comfortable to go towards for advice even on personal issues, and there's no point in being blunt or rude in response because you don't even know the person, so you might as well be considerate. If you knew the person well then yes, sometimes being blunt is necessary. Again though I agree with you, he absolutely must not go for the girl in his situation and clearly it is a test of his patience from Allah (swt). I just didn't like seeing the combination of 1) someone with as much empathy and compassion as Sheikh Mufeed and 2) a shiachat admin being associated with that type of blunt response in someone's (assuming) sincere call for advice. I just think that our role models always taught us a better way to handle these things, like how Enlightened responded.

    Yes, clearly a woman is obligated to wear hijab in public, but if the only concern is men's lust, it seems that physically unattractive woman would not be obligated, and that's not the case. It seems apparent that there must be deeper and more meaningful reasons.

    YariAzQuran reacted to Kirmani in Married & In College....would You?   
    People have this misconception that if you get married before completing school you will then find it very hard to finish school because of distractions and your commitments. Nothing could be further from the truth, it all depends on the mindset and the commitment from both parties.
    Marriage if anything will help you focus more. Just like the sister said in the original post about all her friends getting married ( and if she's in the west literally almost every person Muslim/non-muslim is in some sort of a relationship) this alone is causing tension, anxiety, lonliness, depression and stress about how everyone is enjoying their lives and being happy except the individual him/herself.
    Our bodies go through physical and hormonal desires once we hit puberty, its natural with everyone hence why we are advised to get married asap. If we don't we most likely resort to sinful satisfaction of those desires.
    I myself did Civil Engineering, and for those who don't know engineering is probably one of the hardest degrees to complete, despite studying full time with little play I struggled to get B and C grades, I got married just before my final year (which is supposed to be the hardest year of all) and I managed my best grades (nearly all A's) in that year, because I no longer experienced any of those bad feelings mentioned above and was more inspired and determined to do good because I know how I have to eventually support my wife and family once I'm done school.
    And there is no Mr. or Mrs. Perfect, the only perfects are the Masumeen A.S. We all have faults and marriage is all about compromise, try to find a nice pious person and InshAllah everything works out after that :)

    YariAzQuran reacted to Ali Musaaa :) in Married & In College....would You?   
    I think to some extent people have the right to be picky. Its a massive decision and a life long one. 
     
    However, I don't agree with the whole waiting for mr perfect. One is living in complete delusion to think this fictional character even exists. The truth is, as a friend of mine once said, most of us expect our spouses to be of the status of Imam Ali or Seyyida Zahra yet we, ourselves, are not even 1/10th of their character.
     
    If you want someone of that high character then its only fair you strive to reach that status yourself as well. 
     
     
    And yes, OP, go for it if you feel its best. But don't expect your husband to be sitting on some sort of gold mind. He would most likely be a fellow student with not too much money. Money isn't an issue, God provides the Rizq and if you doubt you'll be able to survive then you're doubting Allah Himself. Have faith and be obedient to Him and He will will enrich you and your husband out of His Grace, as long as the intentions of you both are pure.
     
    My university's campus has couples accommodation. Perhaps thats something to look into. Maybe your uni has it as well? Personally, if I was to get married whilst studying, I'd look into that as living option for me and my wife till we have finished our studies.

    Being married CAN bring great comfort and stress relief. There's nothing better than knowing you have a friend who will be happy to see you at home.
    Being married badly WILL cause great stress and misery, will distract you from your studies, and will suck up all your time.
    So if you find the right one, get married. But don't get married just to be like everyone else.

    I think Iran and the Rouhani administration handled it perfectly.
     
    1) Arrest the idiots to make a point domestically, in order to show that such videos that 1) have men and women interacting socially/dancing together/not wearing hijab (men and women) and 2) propogate the west's narcassistic, immoral (most important one according to the Islamic Republic's constitution and very purpose), and ultimately nihilistic culture in the form of soft power will not be tolerated.
    2) Release them (on the condition that they apologize for their actions) so that the situation doesn't escalate any further internationally with that whole #freehappyIranians gaining too much popularity.
    3) Tweet out an ambiguous tweet to quell any conversation on how the Iranian goverment oppresses happy people.
     
    Situation well-handled, Rouhani.
