  1. Yes. If a man said his wife couldn't get a child but she was amazing and truly loved him, I'd also recommend he not divorce her and try and adopt.
  2. Autism is not a form of jinn possession and claiming otherwise is, frankly, insulting to those who have the condition.
  3. To add to that, there's also Ali Raza Rizvi, who's pretty famous these days. Jan Ali Shah Kazmi is a rare gem, though after his exile from Pakistan he's become less well known. But my favourite, by far, is Ali Murtaza Zaidi. He is the best Urdu speaker I've come across when it comes to building one's spirituality. His lectures are actually that: lectures. He literally starts every ashra by saying he's not interested in khitabat (making speeches). So, his style of speaking is quite different to what most Indians/Pakistanis are used to but if you can get over that, his lectures have a real
  4. If you discovered najasah on your body after washing, you must wash the area again to remove all najasah and make it tahir. Any areas that were wet and in contact with the najasah are also najis and must be washed.
  5. I believe there is a hadith which says if you wish to know who is on the right path, look toward who is opposing them. If you look at the first video in the OP, you can see that the man brought to contrast Aqeel ul Garavi - and set him correct, as it were - preaches a wanton disregard of our fiqh and is openly preaching bidaat. Whoever said the blood discharged from tatbir is tahir? Which marja' has issued fatawa saying you can pray with that blood? Even Imam Hussain would wash his own blood for prayers. That he did not do so on the day of Ashura is a result of the fact that there was no
  6. I'm replying a year late but, man, she was something. There's actually a cheat in the game where you can fight her right after the dog knight (so much earlier in the story than you'd normally fight her) by killing the woman who's in the dancer's chamber. I actually did that. I played a bunch further than the dog knight but saw the exploit on the internet so decided to try it. Man, she was impossible to kill. I don't know how many hours I spent just trying again and again to do it. The advantage of the exploit is that you can immediately proceed to Lothran Castle after killing her so
  7. Aww, I like Asus, too. Though, their customer service isn't necessarily the best so it's better for HS to stick with Dell, HP or Lenovo.
  8. The description in the OP isn't entirely correct. It doesn't use pictures of a female body to guess what the person would look like unclothed. It's designed to take one face and transpose it over another in a video. That is, you could take a video of one person (naked or not) and put someone else's face over one of the people in the video. Whether you have a tight dress or a loose one won't really matter much to the AI, as all it really does is learn how to 1. replace one person's face with another and 2. recreate the expressions of the original face on the second, inserted face. It's basicall
  9. Well, if you really do want to know, instead of asking are you a virgin, you should try and approach the matter with more subtlety, perhaps? Instead of asking that, ask if she was ever interested in another guy before you. And even this is supposed to happen after a little while, when she trusts you enough to tell you things she considers to be private. Don't go around asking about her romantic past (even if she hasn't touched another man, but was just in love or something) the first day you meet. First, just talk to the girl normally and see if you like her and she likes you back. Once t
  10. There are, I believe, some Hadith that say that when the Imam reappears, people will see him and say, "Oh, we saw this man before (e.g. during Hajj, which the Imam attends every year). Thus, some of us may have seen him, but not recognised who he is. Though, as far as I know, these narrations don't specify if only the Shi'a will make such a claim, or if any Muslim who attends Hajj might have seen him. I think this is what you're referring to. On the other hand, there are, of course reports of famous scholars and pious people allegedly meeting the Imam. The difference here is that these pe
  11. @Propaganda_of_the_Deed It's been 8 years since you joined the site? Damn! Any updates on the evolution of your beliefs since you wrote this thread?
  12. Once again, not true. She didn't take it back. She apologised for the language, but even in her apology, she insisted that she wanted to "reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC, the NRA or the fossil fuel industry." She kept to her principles, which is that lobby groups like AIPAC need to go. Even in her apology, she did condemn AIPAC's influence in American politics so I don't see how she took anything back. She apologised for the language, and how some might have been offended; that's it.
  13. That claim is entirely unfounded. She did not marry her brother or break the law: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/ilhan-omar-marry-brother/
  14. Well, even if the US would find out, it's not like they'll take Pakistan to task about it publicly. If it did happen, on the public stage, I'd Pakistan would deny it and the US would remain mum while chastising Pakistan privately. And that more or less corroborates with what we've seen on the diplomatic stage so far. Either PAF didn't use one or didn't lose one and are now denying its use. Anything else, and India could reasonably have a case against the US as to why they didn't stop the F-16 from being used. All these diplomatic considerations do also suggest PAF's claims of not using an
  15. The only 'proof' India has given so far is some kind of missile. If Pakistan used an F-16 in the dogfight, there will obviously be missile cartridges (if any were used). That doesn't mean the jet was also downed. Why would Pakistan then lie about F-16s being used at all if they didn't lose one? Maybe because the US would be furious it used an F-16 without its permission? Either way you look at it, there's maybe some possible evidence an F-16 was used, but none whatsoever that one was downed. In the age of social media, it's also nearly impossible to hide this kinda stuff. If we have
  16. If you go with that logic, why did the all knowing Imams not just correct all of humanity (they are teachers to us all, no?) about all the incorrect scientific theories people have in the 7th century and make 7th century Arabia a nuclear power that could harness the energy of the sun and use advanced AI to automate everything? Surely, the Imams could have done that. Firstly, the Imams are not all-knowing. There are many debates on the matter, but the Imams are generally not aware of ilm al-Ghaib. So, whether or not the Imams even knew everything is debatable. The general consensus is that
  17. Well, things have taken a turn recently with Iran due to the recent bombing and, I imagine, other previous incidents that neither side would disclose (e.g. if they successfully stopped terrorosits from crossing the border, I don't imagine they'd be too willing to let it be well known, not if they could help it). Both sides are planning on building a fence along the border. Obviously, this is about more than a single incident.
  18. Video of the captured pilot being interviewed by the Pakistani Army:
  19. You are correct. That was a mistake on my part, lumping ihtiyat wajib and ihtiyat mustahab together.
  20. Religious rulings are of different kinds. Generally speaking (there are alternative ways of doing taqlid but I'll just list the common way of doing it), you have to choose one single marja' who you believe is the most knowledgeable scholar of fiqh, and stick to his rulings entirely. His word is the law. You are not allowed to seek another marja's opinion over your own marja's if there is a difference of opinion on the matter. In this case, that means that it doesn't matter if Ayatollah Khamenaei allows chess. If your marja, Ayatollah Sistani, deems it haram, then it is haram. Period.
  21. No, the company's been selling them for years, now. They're like the 'jumbo jet' or air travel. But they seem to not have been very cost effective or profitable for airlines so the company will stop making them.
  22. MOD NOTE: Off-topic posts on this thread have been deleted. The purpose of the thread is to determine who the second most influential scholar in the Shirazi family after Ayatollah Sadiq Shirazi is. It's not a thread about the moral standing of Shirazis, or about their teachings. If you don't have the name of a scholar, then please don't comment. Any further posts turning this into a debate on the Shirazis will be hidden. Either stick to what the OP asked or don't reply.
  23. It's okay for you to travel on the day of her shahadat, if you absolutely can't avoid it. It's not haram to do so anyways. Avoiding big things on these days is simply a sign of respect to the ma'soomeen, but if you can't get out of it, then there's no problem with you travelling. There is definitely no sin in it.
  24. No, the OP is not asking about making marjaiyat a hereditary thing. He's asking about who the next great scholar after Sadiq Shirazi is in the family. That's not a controversial subject, at all. I follow Ayatollah Sistani so I'd be interested in who the next big scholar in the Najafi tradition will be so I can know who I might want to follow when Ayatollah Sistani is no longer among us. People who ascribe to the system of wilayatul faqih have similar questions about who the next Rehbar after Ayatollah Khamenaei would be. Wanting to know who the second most prominent scholar in a given family/s
