  1. Guys, everyone needs to relax and take a chill pill (i think that would probably constitute benzodiazepines.. but seriously, don't take that pill. unless you have clinical anxiety or insomnia, then measured doses are fine). It was just a light hearted comment i put up, i didn't mean to disrespect anyone with it. this is an internet forum, people say light hearted things alllll the time. I am not someone who doesn't take on board anything that doesn't go to medical journals, but my approach to very unconventional healing is like my approach with aliens : i believe aliens exist, but probably wou
  2. It is interesting of note that there is a chapter in the Quran about the Virgin Mary (as), as well as a chapter of the companions of the cave, who were a band of greek aristocrats who took early Christianity as their religion and defied the pagan planetary gods which were worshipped at the time. Jesus (as) is of the Ulul Azm (the highest ranking Prophets, including Noah, Moses, Abraham, and of course our Master Mohammad (sawa)). celebrating his birth is just as natural as celebrating the birth of our own Prophet (sawa). i see nothing wrong with giving people a 'happy Christmas' and all that,
  3. ^^ Hamza, don't waste your breath. Christianlady is someone who just wants to spread her thoughts and has no interest whatsoever in learning something new or accepting a truth once she/he sees it. That is fine though, everyone is allowed their opinion as God created us with free will. At the end of the day, the One who will judge us knows every single thought and feeling we felt. If she/he truly is seeking the truth, i hope she/he finds it. If she/he doesn't, i hope one day God makes her/his heart pure enough to want just that, if He wills. Regardless, she/he is still a better person than me,
  4. Nice thread sister 1) For Allah (SWT) to be worshipped by His creation the way He deserves to be (the one most negligent and deficient in this aspect being myself) 2) For our beloved Imam (as) to hasten his reappearance so his family's wait in heaven is not prolonged 3) For everyone on SC to get along, particularly in the Shia/Sunni dialogue forums I know, the 3rd wish is a little too unrealistic. but hey, it's a wish right :P
  5. It is haram to hurt one's own children, in any shape or form. Even when it comes to disciplining a naughty child, if a parent slaps their skin such that it turns red, there is a kaffarah to pay for it. A child who wants to clap their chest with their hand in greif, or just to follow others, on their own accord, is acceptable. Using any instrument goes against religion and logic.
  6. Al balad malyaan, malyaan hunood, hattal haleeb yi sammuha dood Haha, any arab will understand this! especially anyone from the gulf there (even though shiachat is blocked in the UAE!)
  7. This is not a hadeeth as much as it is a statement, a fact, uttered by the Commander of the Faithful (as). When i remember his Iman, his knowledge, and his patience when he was treated so badly by his people and when he lost the ones who were dearest to him, I look at the words he said one more time, in a whole new light....
  8. ^^ No body, first of all, it's not 'my' medicine. cures to disease belong to Allah (SWT), and not to any human beings. And how is it the same? A person with hypothyroidism is low on T3, you give them thyroxine. Does that not work? I added something that was a little too sarcastic even for my own good (believe it or not), and so i deleted it. Body, i guess i'm just not entirely sure what is your stand on medicine, is it that it's not accurate enough? or it costs too much? whatever the case, i hope you are in good health and if Allah wills, will always stay that way
  9. Healing waves, where you will find your hard earned dollars, floating away from you, on calm tropical waves, to our off shore bank accounts. Create a harmonious balance to treat your genuine medical issues, between medical therapies which will actually benefit you, and crock pot hippie remedies. Healing waves, an alternative to real medicine. It is a recombinant of african voodoo and age old spiritual swindling. Healing waves, everyone can have it, as long as they pay dearly.
  10. Salam. i know this does not answering your question specifically, but i don't believe that's an important question because the school of thought of Imam Jaffer (as) does not hinge on tatbir. it is based on Imamah, which is that Allah (SWT) has chosen sinless individuals to continue the message of Islam and the Quran after the Prophet (sawa). THAT is the different between our school of thought and others. we need to focus on the histolical, Quran and hadeeth based, as well as logical proofs behind this, to justify our ideology. Brother Hadi as always speaks words of wisdom. As a school of thou
  11. http://shi3iya.tumblr.com/post/33759508204 My favourite latmiyya at the moment, is the 13th one on this website (there's an SCM player where you can fast forward to the 13th latmiyya), called yighadir kul makel, about Amir Al Mu'mineen (as). However, when i try to search it on youtube or online, i can't seem to find it anywhere. the poet is called Raheem Al qadhimi (according to the end of the latmiyya), but to me it sounds like bassem al kerbalai. Does anyone know this latmiyya's reciter? Jazzakumu Allah Khair
  12. I hope you got the root canal by now bro/sis keeping a dental infection to go on this long runs the risk of bacteria showering into your blood stream and collecting on vital areas like your heart valves, eating them away and causing heart failure and eventually needing valve surgery or even a heart transplant if the heart is too far gone don't wanna scare you, but sometimes we need a real shocking wake up call to make us do things we don't like. i went to my dentist for a routine clean and polish and ended up having 2 root canals and 2 fillings : ) it's not too bad, but now i learned the value
  13. Basically, a heart attack (medically known as a myocardial infarction), is where the blood supply to the coronary arteries supplying the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. There are only 2 things that can treat this: blood thinners, or an angiogram to physically clear the blockage with a stent This 'article' is probably discussing an arrhythmia, which is not a heart attack at all but an abnormal heart rhythm, usually felt by a person as palpitations, particularly very fast heart rhythms where the heart pumps so fast the blood pressure drops to zero and a person faints due to lack of blood suppl
  14. Salam sister khadija, i'm not a gastroenterologist (yet), but i will discuss a few points 1) the fact that you stopped drinking 31 years ago, should not cause liver function abnormalities at this stage in your life, if they were normal let's say 10 or 20 years ago. so something else may be the problem 2) without knowing the specific values of your liver enzymes and the exact report of your liver imaging, i cannot make an accurate diagnosis as to what is going on in your liver. if you have only been seeing a general physician, now might be the time to refer you to a gastroenterologist particula
  15. http://www.shiasourc.../prophet-yusuf/ The full iranian series of Prophet Yousef (as). I love it! I just realised the video you posted was from the same series! ah well, this is the website to get all the episodes in reasonable quality
  16. Salams Ali, hope you're doing well bro. the post i wrote was my personal opinion. i didn't find in my limited research evidence to support wether she was 27 or 40 at marriage. personally i think she was 27. of course it has nothing to do with the fact that Allah (SWT) can make a woman of any age pregnant, i'm not challenging that at all. it doesn't matter really what age she was. for the third time, this is my personal opinion, and everyone's entitled to that.
  17. Someone really close to me went through the same issue of missing khums for a number of years. I suggest visiting your local scholar and telling him about it. he'll crunch the numbers and work out how much you owe. i imagine a rough estimate is he will suggest you give a 5th of everything you own right now in terms of money
  18. Oh Yousef of Zahra (as) It is me again, the insolent disobedient slave. I am the one whose deeds you review every Thursday night, deeds which only add to your grief and pain of this world. Oh Imam i try, but my ignorance and forgetfulness has overtaken me at times. It is with a heavy heart that i return to our Lord ever day, begging Him in His Infinite Mercy to forgive my betrayals, and to hide the ugliest of my deeds from you. If you have not seen much disobedience from me, it is only by the mercy of our Beloved One. Oh Abu Saleh, i bear witness that you are the estranged one. I bear witness
  19. Salam OP, always a good idea to ask questions when you're in doubt 1) God created us and chose who we will physically be (for example, i am physically mohammad, born to my parents in UAE in 1986), but he has for the most part set everything else to our own doing. If we choose to be good, we can be even better than some Prophets, and if we choose evil, well that's self explanatory. Yes the Prophets were chosen to be Prophets, in the sense they have a mission, but importantly the Prophet's CHOSE to follow God's guidance, as they also have free will and can sin like you and i. Their spiritual mak
  20. I know it is a few days after the martyrdom of this most pure of men, but even if i remember him every single day, by Allah i will not do him justice. The Imam (as), in his own words, as no one else can do justice to decribe him Apologies in advance that there are no english subtitiles, thought there likely is a version with them
  21. The hadiths are taken out of context. if the earth all of a sudden reverses and the sun rises from the west, there will be devestating tsumanis at all corners of the world. that hadith likely is metaphorical, that the sun, symbolising knowledge, progress, technology, will rise from the west (america, europe, etc), and have we not seen this since the reinassiance? The Imam said 'kathabal waqqatuun, kaathabal waqqatuun, kathabal waqqatuun' three times. Yes we have to prepare ourselves every single day with the hope in our hearts that the Imam reappears the very next day, but putting a date to t
  22. " To say you have faith in your heart without showing it is like at the end of an exam where you hand the paper completely white, saying "i have knowledge in my brain" Life is nothing but a series of tests. Every test passed make's one's heart calmer and more serene, till they reach the stage of being al nafs al muta-ma'inna. Insha Allah we all reach this lofty stage someday soon
  23. Only went through the first few pages, but already know it's gonna be a great read : ) love the layout, not too text heavy and easy on the eyes. Nothing less than what i would expect from someone as in tune with Allah (SWT) as you, an early congrats for an amazing piece of literature!

  25. Lady Khadija (as) was not 40 years old when she was married, she was in fact only a couple of years older than the Prophet (sawa) when they married, he being 25 and she being 27. You can come to that conclusion logically. We all know Fatimatul Zahra (as) was 18 when the Prophet (sawa) passed away when he was 63. that means the Prophet was 45 when she was conceived. So if the Prophet was 45, then according to the mentality that Lady Khadija was 40 at time of marriage, she would have been SIXTY YEARS OF AGE when she conceived her child. Now that is almost medically impossible. The exaggerated a
