    struggling_On got a reaction from Mzwakhe in Who Are My Shia's   
    (bismillah)
                                                                                                   (salam)
     
    Recently i came across some beautiful narrations that gave me some peace inside... The only purpose of this is to reflect on our actual state, we can be any one and we can say anything. But deep inside who we really are... !
     
    Are we real shia's if not then why not? no body has to know the answer to your question.
     
    A man said to Imam as-Sadiq [a], "May I die for you! By Allah, I love you and love whoever loves you. O my master; how numerous your Shi`a are!"

    The Imam replied, “Would you please mention them?”

    The man said, “They are too many.”

    The Imam replied, “Could you count them?”

    The man said, “They are too many to count.”

    Imam as-Sadiq [a] said, “If the number [of true Shi`a] reaches a little more than three hundred, then what you desire (i.e. divine government) will happen.

    Our Shi`a are those
    whose voices do not pass beyond their ears,
    nor does their zeal go beyond their body,
    nor do they praise us openly,
    nor do they quarrel with anyone because of us,
    nor do they sit with anyone who criticizes us,
    nor do they talk to anyone who abuses us,
    nor do they love anyone who hates us,
    nor do they hate anyone who loves us."

    The man said, “Then how do we deal with these different groups, who pretend that they are Shi`a?”

    The Imam replied, “They will be tried, purified and distinguished. Years come that will perish them,
    a sword that will kill them
    and disagreement that will scatter them.
    Our real Shia are those,
    who do not growl like a dog,
    do not covet like a crow,
    and do not ask people for alms even if they die of hunger.”

    The man asked, “May I die for you! Where can I find such a kind of people?”

    The Imam replied, “You can find them in the far sides of the world.
    They are those,
    whose lives are so simple,
    whose abodes move from place to another,
    who, if they are seen they, will not be known,
    if they are absent, they will not be missed,
    if they become ill, they will not be visited,
    if they propose to a woman, they will not be married,
    and if they die, their funerals will not be attended.
    It is they,
    who divide their wealth among them,
    who visit each others' graves,
    and who never disagree even if their countries are different.”

    (Nu`mani's Kitab al-Ghayba)
     
    Then there are other narrations that state the general conditions of so called shia's,
     
    It is narrated from Jabir Jofi that he said:
    I asked Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.): “When will you come to power?” He replied: “It’s a pity that it will not be so till you are all sieved like grain is sieved to separate it from chaff. And then you are sieved again and again till there does not remain any impurity and only the clean grain is left.”
     
     
    It is narrated from Ali bin Ahmad from Ubaidullah bin
    Musa from Musa bin Muhammad from Ahmad bin Abi Ahmad from Ibrahim bin
    Halil that he said:
     
    “I said to Abul Hasan Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.): May I be sacrificed on you! My father died while still believing in this matter (the Imamate) and I became so old. Shall I die and you do not tell me of anything?” He said: “O Abu Ishaq, you hasten (to hasten the will of Allah).” I said: “Yes, by Allah, I hasten. Why do I not hasten where I became so
    old as you see?” He said: “O Abu Ishaq, by Allah that does not occur until you are tried and clarified until none of you remains save the least. (And he shrank his hand.)”
     
    30- Ghaibat
     
     
    It is narrated from Kulaini from Ali bin Ibrahim from Muhammad bin Isa from Yunus from Sulaiman bin Salih directly from Imam
    Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) that he said:
     
    “Your talk (about Qaim) disgusts the hearts of men. Say it to them forcefully. Say more to whoever accepts it and leave aside whoever denies it. There must be a sedition, by which companions, kin and even those who split a hair into two (who are so strict and accurate) fall until no one remains, save us and our sincere Shia (followers).”
     
     
    It is narrated from Muhammad and Ahmad, sons of Hasan from their father from Thalaba from Abi Khamas from Imran bin Mitham
    from Malik bin Zumra that Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said:
    “O Malik, how about you when the Shia disagree like this?” He interlaced the fingers of his two hands.
    I said: “O Amirul Momineen, there will be no any goodness then.”
    He said: “O Malik, all the goodness will be then! At that time our Qaim will appear. He will be presented seventy men as liars, fabricating lies against Allah and His Messenger (a.s.) and he will kill them. Then Allah will make
    people agree unanimously upon one thing.”
     
    It is narrated from Abdul Wahid bin Abdullah from
    Ahmad bin Rabbah from Muhammad bin Abbas Ibne Isa from Bataini from Abu
    Basir that he said: Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) said:
    “Our Shia (followers) are like a threshing-floor having some grains. The grains are afflicted with worms. They are purified and then are afflicted with worms until very little remains that will never be harmed by the worms. So are our Shia. They are clarified and purified until a very few of them remain, who will never be affected by seditions.
     
    These narrations are so self explanatory, Just reflect on them and fear Allah. And help each other in following Islam in real life only for sake of Allah. Don't seek your personal benefits in return of any kind because the best deeds are those who done for sake of Allah n no one knows them except Allah.
     
    Eid Ghadeer Mubarak !

    struggling_On got a reaction from Hameedeh in Did You Had Miracles With These Duas / Surahs?   
    This is one of the most beautiful dua.....  Thanks for sharing sister... I kind of have forgotten about this and i have something i can relate with this as well. Now you have shared it, it reminded me of all and what i was going through... Even though i'm going through something similar but even more painful and stressful but i have inner peace but anyways....
     
    When i used to seek death so abundantly and i know it's only the will of Allah... because of him i'm living and it's not going to happen as i want but as Allah wants and Allah showed me the reasons and everything.  But I asked, If that's not possible anytime soon then O dear Allah give me something in which I too can find pleasure and happiness...
    As you have given this world and it's charms to people, and they are so happy and cheerful to have it.
    I don't find peace in it. This world isn't for me and so darn painful to live among hypocrites and wordily people... You don't call me back either so at least give me something as well....
    That night.... I was taught this Dua in my dream, i didn't know it's meaning nor did I knew this dua before....  When I woke up i knew this small dua by heart but i didn't ask for it's meaning... first i was unwilling to accept it and read but when i searched for it's meaning and I was amazed...
     
    thanks for the reminder, as i haven't read this one in a long time.... i guess i needed it again desperately and Allah showed me your post. I think it's time to go back to him.... 
     
    Thank u and may Allah bless you and all those who are struggling in anyway... May Allah help them in their struggles.

    struggling_On reacted to Hameedeh in Nationality Problem   
    We live in an era when most people believe that discrimination is wrong, so perhaps some do not like to discuss race, nationality or religion. On your CV, it is fine to list a language that you are fluent in, if it would help you to get hired. However, if using that language would be a rare occurrence in the workplace, do not mention it on your CV. After you start working there, you can tell your co-workers that you know another language.

    struggling_On reacted to starlight in Broke My Heart,made Me Cry   
    Sis mina .. May Allah give Sabr and strength to the boy, It is indeed an heart breaking incident. These barbaric people apparently forget that there is a Supreme Being who controls everything and we have to account for every smallest deed of ours.
    The heinous man will pay soon for this despicable act.
     
    This brought another incident to my  mind. There is this family whom we know, a rich man with lots of connections, owner of hundreds of acres of farmland here in Pakistan besides other businesses. Well , one day he decided to travel to his farms in his brand new mercedes just to show off, a small village boy playing nearby either accidentally or out of mischief threw a small stone at his car which resulted in a scratch on the door of his Merc.As he was surrounded by lots of people he did not show his anger. The next day while the boy was playing in the fields with his friends and there was no adult watching over them,he ended up 'accidentally' hitting the same boy in with that very car. The 7 yr old boy, an only son of his parents died on the spot.  since he's rich and this was 'an accident' caused by the carelessness of the young boy he walked away without any legal repurcussions, he never showed any remorse over what he had done.
    Fast forward 2 years, he ends up with a huge financial loss in his business, and this strong powerful man ends up having a nervous breakdown , he spends the next 4 years confined to his room barely talking to anyone before dying of cardiac failure. During this period of his isolation whenever someone mentioned him I often felt the urge to ask him whether the loss of his millions was worth more than a human life?
    His only son had two daughters, one who them suffers from a mental disorder,any sons they have die either soon after birth or in infancy due to a genetic disorder. They are running pillar to post to find a cure for their children's illnesses.
    Everyone who does not truly repent ends up praying for his deeds either in this world or hereafter
     
    Shakir (16:22)Your Allah is one Allah; so (as for) those who do not believe in the hereafter, their hearts are ignorant and they are proud.

    struggling_On reacted to Miss Wonderful in Wanting More Children   
    In the Nahj  ul-Balagha, Imam Ali says, " One of the conveniences in life is to have less children." That being said, if you barely got enough for your family now, then bringing another child in life is just going to be harder. I know people say God will bless you, if you  are following His word and believing in Him, but you got to be smart about it too. Can your husband handle another child? Having another child, when you barely can provide for the family now, can put alot of strain on the marriage. Also it wouldn't be fair to the child, because you want to raise them up all fairly and provide the necessary medical, educational needs for all.

    Thank you for liking my post. :) If anyone did not read the article, it also mentions that if you are signed up to receive emails from a website and you do not click any links or attachments, they can still gather information about you if you only click the link to unsubscribe. Personally I never click the unsubscribe link, but go to my email settings and click on Filters to set up a filter to move those emails to my trash folder and keep them out of my inbox. Yes, that website thinks you are getting their emails and they will keep you on their list, but if you click to unsubscribe they are forced to unsubscribe you, and I think when you are unsubscribed then that website, if unscrupulous, will sell your email address to other websites and you might get even more junk emails.

    struggling_On reacted to Inner Peace in Friendships And Loneliness   
    Salam Alaykum, 
     
    I've been facing a couple problems and decided to post on here for some advice. I've grown up in the west and relative to my surroundings with the help of Allah alhamdulilAllah I haven't had much difficulty. The past couple years I've had issues with friendships and I feel lonely often. I'm very social person but I don't have any deep friendships and that has a lot to do with religion. The area I live in is very Muslim dense and when I was younger it was great having so many friends around with similar interests. However, now that I'm 19, unfortunately, most of those muslim friends have changed, a lot of them are still hijabi girls but aren't quite religious. So there is a natural drift because they know I'm not into many things that are quite haram. My non-muslim friends are great but they obviously party/drink for social events and I can't join. I feel like it's so difficult to have any close friends just simply because I refuse to do many activities they're involved in. Sometimes I feel so lonely when everyone is going out. Actually, I feel lonely quite often. I'm starting to question if it's even worth staying religious in this society (I'm not super religious but I know my borders). I feel like I'm not having enough fun and all my muslim and non-muslim friends bring that up all the time. I feel lonely all the time because I feel so different. I'm looking for any advice from anyone? Has anyone been in the same situation?
