    Apple juice vs orange juice

    Apple juice vs orange juice What do you think? I'll go with Apple juice tbh. I like the taste more.
  4. What does this mean. It's a legit Islamic question. Is it hâram to use the chat function when you e.g. joke with the opposite gender etc.
  5. Salam alâykum wa rahmatallahi wa barkatu. Inshallah khâyr. If a non-sâyid woman marries a sâyid man their children become sâyed/sâyeda. However, if a non-sâyed man marries a sâyeda their children don't become sâyed/sâyeda. What is the reason for this? And I ask Allah to protect you all.
  6. Someone told me this. 1) Because it is israaf (meaning waste), because you spend money on fireworks. 2) You can't imitate non-Muslims. What do we say to that?
  7. Salam alaykum For a period we have been translating (mainly) Sayed Sâbah Shubar fiqh lectures from Arabic to English in the hope of an English audience may benefit from his lectures. His lectures are based on the fiqh of Ayatollah Sayed Ali al-Sistani (ha). You can check our Youtube channel out here. In this video, the Sayed (ha) explains the issue of a husband taking his wife's salary, whether it is allowed or not. This is something which happens quite often. Click on the Youtube channel to benefit from other videos + a nice story from Sayed Muhammad al-Safi (ha) about his meeting with a wâhabi cab driver in Mecca. ** Remember to enable the translation by pressing "settings" and pick English. Allahuma sali ala Muhmamad wa Ahle Muhammad.
  8. Ahsant akhi. Thanks for sharing your videos. I will listen to them. May I ask which subtitle program you use? I use Youtube's own, which is not quite good. May Allah bless you.

    Mustahab acts of prayer

    Very good thread. 1. It is mustahab to say "kadhalikallahu rabi" OR "khadhalikallahu rabbuna" once or three times BUT THIS IS ONLY AFTER SURAT AT-TAWHEED! - This is ONLY mustahab to recite for the person who recites surat al-tawheed. This means that those who follow the Imam must not recite this. This is from the hâdith. 2. It is indedd mustahab to recite "Astaghfirallaha rabbi wa atubu ilayh" between the two sâjdah (when you are sitting after the first sâjdah). 3. Regarding A'udu billahi min ashaytan arajeem, it is mustahab precaution that it should be said with a low voice. 4. After tasbih az-zahra it is mustahab to say "la ilaha illah". 5. It is also mustahab to recite surat tâwhid at least in one of your prayers. 6. It is mustahab between adhan or iqama that you move a step forward. 7. It is also mustahab not to recite surat tawheed in one breath, but to stop at each verse. 8. In tasbihat al arabah it is mustahab to recite it three times. It is not KNOWN if two is mustahab. If a person wants to recite MORE than three times he CAN but with the intention of "the rememberane of Allah (dhikr'ilAllah). 9. It is also mustahab to recite surat inna anzala (Qadr) in the prayers. Allahuma sali ala Muhammad wa Ahle Muhammad!

    Qadha' prayers made easy.

    An important thing has to be mentioned: In tâshahud it is not ash hadu an la ilaha illal lahu wahdahu la sharika lah Rather it is ashadu al-la ilaha illahu.

  12. What is the worst word, which has been used against you? I mean perhaps your mother, father, friend or someone else called u that? I mean a word u thought "Damn, that hurt". I can start. I think it is the word "fasheeel" which is an Iraqi word used against me. It means you are a failure. That hurt a lot. What is yours?

    Cheer him up! He needs your support

    I thank you for your thoughts. It is a very difficult time.
  16. I have heard this - if you may call it - claim that Sayed al-Khoei is the greatest scholar of the Imami school. Personally, I think he is in the top 5. Can anyone explain why some might argue for this?

    Language barrier to marriage

    You need to tell your mom that what she does is not approved by Islam and that she is making you live a terrible life. You need to talk to her guilt. We Iraqis tend to focus too much on traditions. Have you told your mom that your friend can easily learn Arabic?
  19. His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayed Ali al-Husseini al-Sistani, meets with leading Bahraini cleric Sheikh Isa Qassem today in the holy city of Najaf. https://t.co/5Kc5bOl2nO Allahuma sali ala Muhammad wa Ahle Muhammad!
