  1. Thanks for this practical reply I needed this for peace of mind!
  2. From the Quran we can conclude iftar is at Layl and and Layl is not synonyms with maghrib. But at the same time you can assume that the time consists of day and night. So the real question that remains is if we can accept maghrib is the start of and part of Layl or is Layl only after maghrib. And the only reason he thinks so is because of the Hadith in bukhari 1954 and 1955. My Arabic is not that strong so I can't really see anything out of the ordinary. Do you? Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "When night falls from this side and the day vanishes from this side and the sun sets, then the fasting person should break his fast." حَدَّثَنَا الْحُمَيْدِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عُرْوَةَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبِي يَقُولُ، سَمِعْتُ عَاصِمَ بْنَ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ إِذَا أَقْبَلَ اللَّيْلُ مِنْ هَا هُنَا، وَأَدْبَرَ النَّهَارُ مِنْ هَا هُنَا، وَغَرَبَتِ الشَّمْسُ، فَقَدْ أَفْطَرَ الصَّائِمُ ‏"‏‏.‏ We were in the company of the Prophet (ﷺ) on a journey and he was fasting, and when the sun set, he addressed somebody, "O so-and-so, get up and mix Sawiq with water for us." He replied, "O Allah's Apostle! (Will you wait) till it is evening?" The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Get down and mix Sawiq with water for us." He replied, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! (If you wait) till it is evening." The Prophet (ﷺ) said again, "Get down and mix Sawiq with water for us." He replied, "It is still daytime."(1) The Prophet (ﷺ) said again, "Get down and mix Sawiq with water for us." He got down and mixed Sawiq for them. The Prophet (ﷺ) drank it and then said, "When you see night falling from this side, the fasting person should break his fast." حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ الْوَاسِطِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدٌ، عَنِ الشَّيْبَانِيِّ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي أَوْفَى ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ كُنَّا مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي سَفَرٍ، وَهُوَ صَائِمٌ، فَلَمَّا غَرَبَتِ الشَّمْسُ قَالَ لِبَعْضِ الْقَوْمِ ‏"‏ يَا فُلاَنُ قُمْ، فَاجْدَحْ لَنَا ‏"‏‏.‏ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، لَوْ أَمْسَيْتَ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ انْزِلْ، فَاجْدَحْ لَنَا ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ فَلَوْ أَمْسَيْتَ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ انْزِلْ، فَاجْدَحْ لَنَا ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَ إِنَّ عَلَيْكَ نَهَارًا‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ انْزِلْ، فَاجْدَحْ لَنَا ‏"‏‏.‏ فَنَزَلَ فَجَدَحَ لَهُمْ، فَشَرِبَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ثُمَّ قَالَ ‏"‏ إِذَا رَأَيْتُمُ اللَّيْلَ قَدْ أَقْبَلَ مِنْ هَا هُنَا، فَقَدْ أَفْطَرَ الصَّائِمُ ‏"‏‏.‏
  3. Salaam everyone I've had a long discussion with a sunni friend about when to break the fast. He claims night/Layl starts at maghrib and is part of the Layl. So we can break our fast immediately at sunset. I went through the Quran verses that make a distinction between Layl and Maghrib. Making them not synonyms. But then he points to the following Hadith. Is anyone familiar with these Hadith and how to methodically disprove his point. [10/04, 19:57] 3 Mohamed Arba: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “When the night comes from here and the day departs from here, and the sun sets, then it is time for the fasting person to break his fast.” al-Bukhaari 1954 [10/04, 19:58] 3 Mohamed Arba: Abd-Allaah ibn Abi Awfa (may Allah be pleased with him) said: We were with the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) on a journey and he was fasting. When the sun set, he said to one of the people: O So and so, get up and make saweeq for us (mix it with water so that we can drink it). He said O Messenger of Allah, why not wait till the evening? He said: Dismount and make saweeq for us. He said: O Messenger of Allah, why not wait till the evening? He said: Dismount and make saweeq for us. He said: It is still day. He said: Dismount and make saweeq for us. So he dismounted and made saweeq for them, and the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) drank it, then he said: When you see that night has come from here, then let the fasting person break his fast. Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said: This hadeeth indicates that it is mustahabb to hasten to break the fast and that it is not permissible to refrain from eating and drinking for any part of the night at all; rather as soon as it is established that the sun has set, it is permissible to break the fast. Al-Bukhaari (1955) and Muslim (1101) Thank you in advance and Ramadan mubarak to you all Insh'Alaah!
  4. Hi guys a friend of mine just sent me very good points about fasting till layl(night) instead of maghrib(sunset). The quran used the word 'layl' (night) to describe the period of the fasting's end. As the term 'ghurub' (sunset) is well known to the Quran, it could have used such a term clearly to denote the ending of the fasting period without any ambiguity. However, it simply did not. The Sunnah/hadith, sheiks and hearsay seems to indicate that these terms are interchangeable: Is Layl equal to Maghrib? Here are some of the ayat he brought up about the layl and this clearly seems to point to the fact that we should break our fast after maghrib prayer. 017.036--- DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH "And do not follow that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed! The hearing and the sight and the heart - of each of these you will be questioned" 002:183---- FASTING IS MADE OBLIGATORY "O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may learn self-restraint /guard against evil." 002:187--- FASTING TILL LAYL "…and eat and drink, until the white thread of dawn appears to you distinct from its black thread. Then complete the fast till the night (layl)…" 036:37--- Layl definition= DARK "And a sign (aya) for them is the night. We strip from it [the light of] day, so they are in darkness." 028:71--- Layl definition = 'WITHOUT LIGHT' "Say, Have you considered: if Allah should make for you the night continuous until the Day of Resurrection, what deity other than Allah could bring you light? Then will you not hear?" 006:76--- Layl definition = 'PLANETS VISIBLE' When the night (layl) covered over him, He saw a planet (kawkab): He said: "This is my Lord." But when it set, He said: "I love not those that set." 018:86--- Layl definition = CONCEALES/HIDES "By the Sun and its brightness (splendour, brightness, brilliance — duha) and the moon when it follows it and the day when it displays it and the night (Arabic: layl) when it covers / conceals it." 010:67--- Layl definition ='HARD TO SEE' "It is He who made for you the night to rest therein and the day, giving sight..." These clear verses don't really allow for much debate. If the Quran says something and the sunnah says something else then the Quran should always be put first! After reading these quran verses with the word Layl in its propper context, it is hard for me to believe that Layl would ever be confused with the word maghrib in the quran. According to the Quran, maghrib prayer can absolutely not be the time to break your fast. It takes about 30 min after sunset before the Layl begins and visibility becomes hard. This period was independently described by scientists as Nautical twilight, it comes after sunset (civil twilight). Is it right to conclude that from now on iftar should happen about 30 minutes after the maghib prayer for our sunni brothers? And is it right to say that the shia brothers should pray the maghrib prayer DURING maghrib and not drag it out 30 minutes in order for it to coincide with futoor? I am confused about this, why make Allah wait before we pray maghrib? Thanks in advance Ramadan Kareem
  5. Salaam and ramadan Kareem to you all I've been wondering for a few years now why the shia don't pray maghrib at the onset of ghurub (sunset under the horizon). Why do we pray only 25 minutes later? If the quran mentions Layl as the propper time for breaking our fast, why do we not first pray Maghrib at it's appointed time (sunset), then wait 25 minutes for Layl (night) to set, so we can break our fast. Isn't it better to pray on time, when we know by sattelite and science the exact minute when sunset is reached in our area? Thanks in advance & Salaam
  6. Salaam I think you are worrying too much about the potential of stones and too little about the blessings for your health and spirit you will lose when not fasting. FACT I Muslims in general drink MORE water during ramadan than during any other month in the year. Because most of us are very aware of the thirst next day. So just make sure you drink even more, since you're aware of your possible kidney stones. FACT II The human body can make it's own water, this means that as long as you don't eat anything, you can also not drink anything for multiple days!! So I'm sure you'll survive just 18 or 20 hours per day. Finally I would like to add, that I personally have done a 4 day dry fast, where we don't drink any water or food, and no kidneystones, I still had to urinate every morning. Just like a camel, we use our fat to make water. So please don't miss your fasting, it has so many benefits for your body and spirit. Ramadan Kareem
  7. Are you going to follow your logic or Allah's logic? Allah says hijab is better for you, you say it's not. Simple as that... also, not a single girl I know who took off the hijab after wearing it for a while ended up becoming better in faith; only the opposite. it might be a test, but no, in your case (being extra attractive 'n stuff) I think you have been handed a great responsibility, the responsibility to restore whatever other hypocrite hijabi's have destroyed and set a true example for the blonde and muslim guys out there, for the sake of your sisters in islam and our daughters later... So don't quit on us, don't drop the flag.. cause whether you like it or not, since you were 12 you were and you still are the flagbearer of shia't Ali, and an annoying reminder to the hypocrites who want to ignore Islam!!!
  8. Salaam, this is a message via FB. Jahangir Shah Respected sister, hope you are doing well! If you have already found a sister in Belgium in Antwerpen area is great! If not please let me know then I will give you the names of sisters in Belgium! Wa Assalam could you PM me her email/ facebook or any relevant info. OR you can PM that person via fb yourself. InshAlaah Khair.
  9. Put the word out there for you, InshAlaah there'll be response.
  10. I'm not a sis, but I guess I can help find one willing to help out. Tell me about this woman, is she a convert?
  11. @ Zigzag Considering the fact they were the prophet's closest, oldest, wisest and most loyal "friends", they had the power to easily and effectively end any mutiny by any faction. But no, the weasels jumped at the chance knowing that the prophet appointed Ali (as) in their presence multiple times... didn't even bother to wash or help bury the prophet(pbuh&f).
  12. Cause AbuBakr and Umar (being "the loyal friends" of the prophet) should have been the ones discouraging the idea, showing that islam has changed the status quo of the jahiliyah, instead they joined in...
  13. So did your parents call you sayed Ali? Or you mean your name is Ali and you're a sayed? 1: fitnessblackbook.com 2: Know your bodytype 3: Mind your diet 4: Aim for fatigue after 1h max and go home! (if you take a break of 3 to 4 minutes between each set you'll stay there all day... ) 5: Never leave unless you're DESTROYED or don't go. (so again DO NOT take long breaks) 6: And lastly but certainly not least: always increase in weight => if you're hitting the same max weight for 3/4 weeks straight then you're doing it wrong. (6 weeks 3x6 push pull and 6 weeks 3x15 push pull) ps: if you have exams and if it's ramadan, go anyway (at least once a week and do a full-body routine without breaks longer than 60 sec so you can leave sooner) you have no idea what you're capable of if you really have to so don't be a prisoner of your own mind, that's gay.
  14. Scholars are usually old and old people have been known to be satisfied with 5 or 4h of sleep. But if he'd been doing this from a young age then wow! He gives Allah most of his time before Fajr and most of us don't even wake up for Fajr... He studies for 2-3 h every day! Most of us don't do anything only to freak out 2 weeks before the exams! Also notice that within his EXTREMELY tight schedule he took a full 45 minutes to just sit down and reflect about today and the future in his garden. => none of us "has time" fro this And he didn't forget to exercise for 30 minutes every day => most of us hit the Gym hours and hours for 3 months then stop till we get fat again then hit the Gym for hours and hours then STOP. Conclusion: BE A TRUE SHIA OF AHLULBAYT AND FIND BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE AND YOU WILL BE AMAZING!
  15. When did it start, who invented it (to draw or make a hand figure) and why is there an eye in the middle?
  16. Salaams So as they said its his prophet's daughter (may the peace and blessings of Allah be with them.) She was married to Ali (the first of twelve Imams/caliphs of islam). She bore two sons Hassan and Hussain (you might have heard of him). Who later became the second and third imams of islam. About her hand, I don't believe it has anything to do with islam... especially the eye in the middle what's wit that! seems more occult stuff to me. Unless of course a knowledgeable brother or sister might enlighten me. Salaams
  17. “A two-unit prayer performed by a married person is better than seventy units performed by an unmarried person.”Imam al-Sadiq (as) [bihar al-Anwar, p. 219, no. 15]
  18. First identify your distractions then destroy them. In my case it's the PC so I ask a friend of mine to change the password to my windows (through the internet) and then they'd only give me the password at night or when I beg for it or prove I studied well. ... but since I forgot to change the password today, I'll enjoy every minute Muhahah!
  19. Congrats on your conversion bro, and welcome to shiachat ^^ I don't know your level of knowledge but it seems you're a pursuer of truth :D I'd recommend "After the prophet" by Lesley Hazleton (agnostic historian) she explains in beautiful writing what happened after the death of the holy prophet pbuh&f without any bias and that's why I like the book so much (since she's not muslim). But that won't get you a muta partner I'm afraid... :P Good luck finding a suitable spouse, btw be patient since you never know what atrocities Allah might be protecting you from by not granting you your wishes immediately! Btw if you have any specific questions Post away and the brothers here will certainly help! And you can PM me and I'll always make time to help inshALaah!! Salaam :)
  20. But the friend didn't get another job he might just have been promoted... :P anyway personally I've never used "Ya Ali", but I did use "Bihaq Ali" but today I've learned a lot, Jazzakum Allah khair and may He increase your knowledge! I'm so confused right now... gonna sleep on it and I'll make dua for you guys during morning prayers :P May Allah guide this thread to the truth!
  21. so basically the prophets and imams can't hear us if we call on them to ask God. But if we personally ask God to help us in their names then He would? Is that right? Sorry for the nagging, I need to make sure I understand. Jazak Allah Khair
  22. So haydar do you mean we can't use tawassul at al? what's your interpretation on the quranic verse where it says we can take to Allah the "waseelah" If we can, then how should we go about it then?
  23. I mean you don't see the prophet (pbuh&f) coming to the people in Mekkah calling them kuffar dogs... and killing them... instead he made sure he was the perfect example so they'd listen, then he started having conversations with them, just that conversations. (pbuh)
  24. ^ That's what I thought too? Isn't it so that Allah (swt) was the first to use Tawassul? Even though that Allah could inspire us like he inspired Luqman (he wasn't a prophet). He (swt) still didn't download the info in our brains but He used the intermediary called Muhammd (pbuh&f). So why are we not allowed to use the same intermediary as well as call upon Allah directly! When we call mom to help us with something it isn't shirk because we didn't call God to help... the obly objection is that mom obviously isn't dead when you call her to help you, but the Imams and prophet's "are". Think not of those who are martyred in the way of Allah as dead. Nay! They are living, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord." (Quran 3:169) I'm still learning don't chew me up! ^^
