  1. You might be thinking of something else, but This meditation emphasises pure silence throughout meditation - or in my case (if deemed allowed), focussing on the Quran from my iPod!
  2. Does anyone know about a Shia Tour Guide / Company in Lucknow who could show us the Imambarghahs in Lucknow if we were to go?
  3. Salams All Since it is a philosophy and not a religion, can a Muslim learn meditation from techniques of Buddhism as long as there is no shirk or risk of shirk? Curious as an opportunity has come up to learn some, which sounded quite interesting... Thanks for your thoughts R
  4. Salams All, I'm planning to go to Ziarat in Iran (alone / with family). Apart from Imam Reza (A.S) in Mashhad and Lady Masumeh in Qom, where are the other usual recommended ziarats I should pay a visit to? Any help will be greatly appreciated Thanks!
  5. Yes! Take spoon teaspoon of honey in a mug, add a quarter cup of hot (warm) water. Drink it. You'll be messaging back in 5 minutes telling me it worked like a treat!
  6. I'd love to go too - Mashallah I've got the opportunity this year, I just want to make sure I know what to do / where to go to make the most of it R
  7. Writing 'excuse my language on this thread' does not excuse the disgraceful attitude that drips from every word in your post. Sort it out Bruv.
  8. It certainly sounds like you're passing your tests....
  9. Iran have produced a number of excellent dramatisations. I just hope they've put some of that budget aside for Translating it into English!!!
  10. Salams All, I'm planning a trip to Iran during the 10 days of Mohurram. Does anyone have any advice on where (which City) is best to go? Would Mashad or Qum be the best? Also, what happens on Ashura in Iran? Where is best to do Ashura? Thanks - All advice much appreciated
  11. So is there any clarity whether he is a shia or a sunni? As long as he's not a salafist, it's all good.. :)
  12. Nobody pays respect to ladoo's. The respect is given to the principle of honouring the Holy Imam's sacrifice, one method of which is placing small items of food in his name which is later distributed to the azadars present. Trailing food behind the Alam is of cultural / tradition but not religious significance. But I can't stress enough - it's not the ladoo's being respected, it's the *reason* they are are there which is being honoured. (same for candles, nuts etc)
  13. I hope your joking because this almost made me wee myself with laughter!
