  1. Not to mention the fact that Imam `Ali (as) wouldn't reference a Persian measurement to an Arab man...
  2. Heh, I suppose you're right, but I think we can have more interesting discussions discussing our fiqh, tarikh, or even modern-day social issues instead. Whatever floats your boat though, akhi. :)
  3. (bismillah) (salam) Why are we discussing hypothetical matters? But yes, I would keep a beard if it were not wajib, because then it would at least be Sunnah.
  4. (bismillah) (salam) This game is rated "M". So wouldn't it have nudity, alcohol, swearing, etc. within it? I would avoid playing it.
  5. (bismillah) (salam) 975 - 36 علي بن مهزيار عن حماد بن عيسى عن حريز عن زيد الشحام قال: سألت أبا عبدالله(ع) عن وقت المغرب فقال: ان جبرئيل (ع) أتى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله لكل صلاة بوقتين غير صلاة المغرب فان وقتها واحد ووقتها وجوبها. http://www.al-shia.o...bsar-1/a150.htm In the hadith, (please forgive me insh`Allah if the translation is not up to par--I'm trying to do my best): [isnad +] Zayd ash-Shaham who said, "I asked Abu `Abdillah (as) about Maghrib's timing, so he (as) said, 'Verily Jibra`il (as) came to the Prophet (pbuh) and gave each salat two timings except for Salat al-Maghrib because its timing is one and during the time is that which is the wajib on it.'" This hadith is graded sahih by Allamah al-Majlisi, if I'm reading it right. If you know arabic, you could probably look it up though. I also translated these in a prior post: http://www.shiachat....hrib-and-qadha/ 4868 - 9 - ورواه، عن، زرارة، والفضيل قالا: قال أبوجعفر (عليه السلام): إن لكل صلاة وقتين غير المغرب فإن وقتها واحد ووقتها وجوبها ووقت فوتها سقوط الشفق (2). وروي أيضا أن لها وقتين آخر وقتها سقوط الشفق. And narrated [from the previous isnad: al-Husayn b. Muhammad al-Ashari from `Abdullah b. Amr from `Ali b. Mihzayar from Hamad b. `Isa from Hariz] from Zurara and al-Fudayl who said, "Abu Ja`far (as) said, 'Verily, every salat has two time periods except for Maghrib whose time period is only one and during this one period is the wajib prayer. And this period ends when the twilight disappears.'" 4869 - 10 - محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن فضال: قال: سأل علي ابن أسباط أبا الحسن (عليه السلام) ونحن نسمع: الشفق الحمرة أو البياض؟ فقال: الحمرة لو كان البياض كان إلى ثلث الليل. Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. `Isa from Ibn Faddal who said, "`Ali b. Asbat asked Abu`l-Hasan (as), and we were listening, '[is it] the red glow or the white [glow's disappearance that signifies the end of Maghrib]?' He said, 'The red. If it was the white, you would have to wait until the third of the night [to pray].'" The red glow is referenced as the shafaq in our texts. By the way, these are from al-Kafi. Fii Amanillah.
  6. (wasalam) akhi, Thank you for your help, but I will attend U of M's main campus in Ann Arbor insh`Allah--not the one in Dearborn.
  7. (bismillah) (salam), I am a Shi`i Muslim living in a city on the west side of the state, which has little to no Shi`a and only a few Sunnis. Insh`Allah I am going to college, الحمد لله, soon but I would like to room with a devout Shi`i at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you someone or do you know anyone in your community attending U of M next fall and would want a Shi`i roommate? Insh`Allah I would like to room with a devout, faithful Shi`i brother. Please post here if you are insh`Allah. في امان الله
  8. (bismillah) (salam) I've been trying to read more about Ibn al-Junayd to little avail since most, if not all, of his texts have been lost to history. In his al-Fihrist, Shaykh at-Tusi claims that he used qiyas, but I'm not sure as whether this statement is valid or just polemics to do away with Ibn al-Junayd's shadh rulings, for example his ruling on hijab during salat or the permissibility of saying "ameen" after Surah al-Fatiha in salat. I believe Shaykh al-Mufid wrote a book against Ibn al-Junayd as well. It also seems that in Shara`i al-Islam, the "other" opinion al-Muhaqqiq al-Hilli expounds upon might be Ibn al-Junayd's. So what I'm basically wondering about is his methodology of fiqh and how he made these shadh rulings. Are they based upon ahadith? Are they truly qiyas? Or something else? Ýí ÇãÇä Çááå
  9. It seems that the thread moved to the Education subforum. Please forgive me for making that mistake in posting it originally in the General Discussions forum. ÌÒÇß Çááåõ ÎíÑÇð Your advice has been so mollifying and helpful. Insh`Allah all will go well and insh`Allah I will pray for you. EDIT: I forgot two more questions: what about nail cutting at college every Friday and how would you store Islamic literature in a dorm if necessary?
  10. (salam) Do as Abu Hadi recommends: just recite the Ziyarah from where you are. If you are able to, you should make a physical visitation to the Prophet (pbuh) and the `A`immah (as) of course. See the ahadith here: http://www.tashayyu....e-2/chapter-220
  11. (salam) I didn't watch the video, but knowing Jon Stewart, it's satire. Ýí ÇãÇä Çááå
  12. (salam) Thanks akhi Murtada. You have alleviated many of my worries. May Allah `azza wa jalla reward you. I'm still worried about the worst-case scenario with housing: living with a kafir roommate in a dorm. If you don't mind, can you explain a bit more of how you dealt with it here or via PM? When the time comes for acceptances, choosing a college, and then when the college sends me housing info, may I contact you?
  13. (salam) What would you recommend saying to them for singles? There are apartments near the schools I've applied to, but first years typically are not allowed to use them. In addition, they're usually more expensive than room & board at a university unless I can find someone to share the costs.
  14. Single rooms are near impossible to find at many universities... Your idea about dorming is unique and may be possible but we don't know many people near a college. Most of our living relatives are in the Middle East and the others are in Europe. Insh`Allah I will do as you did with your MSA. Do you keep your "lotta" with you in college? Or should I use something less conspicuous like a water bottle?
  15. (salam) ÌÒÇß Çááåõ ÎíÑÇð This is so helpful. May I ask what college you go to? It's alright if you do not want to share. Do the males have well "intimate relations" with girls in the rooms? Do they store alcohol? Because this najasat and actions would be entirely unacceptable as you know. I've heard Pakistanis speak about lottas--they're like gardening pots, right? If so, that's what I use! :) LOL at the bolded section. It's so true. Would you recommend me to stay in the midwest/Michigan? I think that would be best since I would be close to my family for support (and for halal food--I can't give up lamb LOL!), right? Did you do taqiyyah with the MSA members? Do they stare at you when you pray with them (of course, by yourself)? What do you think about getting a Muslim roommate? Is it possible? (salam), Thank you for your advice. Insh`Allah I will not falter one bit all. I am determined in al-Islam and I will insh`Allah remain that way until Allah `azza wa jalla judges me on the Day of Judgment--may He (swt) forgive my sins and show mercy. Please everyone, pray for me too. :)
