  1. Salam everyone. I am in a very depressing state. Yesterday I had a fight with one of my friends. In anger I cursed him. Now I feel sorry. Is there any dua or namaz to undo the effect. The thing is that if by coincidence something happens to him, I will not be able to forgive myself. Please help. Jazakalla khair
  2. Salam Everyone, What does one do when they feel totally trapped in Social media? Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp and what not When it starts taking toll on things that really matter. For example, it takes your time away from work, where your performance starts to get affected. and then, it starts affecting your sleep cycles. Health Starts to deteriorate. Where does it stop or what should we do to stop this viscous cycle? I think it has negatively affected my personal and professional development. Please help, anyone?
  3. Salam aleykum wr wb my brother and my sisters I need your help. I want to help a young convert brother from Basque Country to pray in the shia way. He have a really bad situation with his atheist parents and he dont know what do to do, he is in a depression and he dont know how to pray, because every person on the internet tell him something different and he is confused. The thing is I only have a german explanation "how to pray" and its very difficult to find an english one and its not easy to translate the german version. Does someone know a link or a website who is explanate exactly all the 1-2/3/4 Rek'a on every 5 times and the acts (positions etc.) to pray in english? Sorry for my bad english i hope someone understand what i mean. Wa Salam
  4. Salam, I'm a student of a University where there is a Hindu bully who disrespects other fellows (those who do not disrespect infront of the bully, portrayed as cowards). I myself is a peace loving person and wouldn't engage myself in any abuse or fight. What should I do, I mean I too have a reputation among others but that bully always ask me absurd question to disrespect me and Now the actual problem is: That person has taken one of my belonging that I forgot somewhere. He then approached me and said that I have to give him a treat so that he could return his belonging. Its been days and he is not giving my thing back. I have planned to take his belonging tomorrow which would probably lead to a fight because he has much ego in his heart. Now, what should I do? I want some suggestions from Islamic point of view supported by verses to calm me down and change my perspectives. Its pay back time, enough is enough. Thanks.
  5. *I created this post in thinkers discourse, but its not approved yet so started here instead, mods can move later if they feel like it. First of All, I am no evolutionist in any political sense, but yes i have faith in science and i have faith that all claims of scientists are correct. But now i am really intrigued by reading verses of Quran and I need your guidance and views whether I am interpreting things correctly. 1st, I always thought what is wrong with accepting evolution, it just happens as scientists claims it to be but except Human, who was created, or may be we understand createdness wrong, we were just another better looking ape with much less abilities, and with a magic God gave us "Ashraf Ul Makhlooqat" Level BrAIN. Another view to support above argument is, that in this world only we are intelligent as per our definition of intelligence. There are many brilliant dogs and apes, some of them even learned alphabets, but none of them evolved into an equally or more powerful Mind, which again proof the Words of Quran that we are indeed ASHRAF AL MAKHLOOQAT. Creationist already find it hard to digest the kind of CHANCE Atheist say we are, and then by chance we also have the mind of no other specie (unless Douglas Adams was right in favor of Dolphins) But that is a lesser argument. I read few verses and its looks like Quran itself tells us that we are evolved, though in wiki article, 4 of those verses were put in favour of CREATEDNESS of MAN, & 1 was listed as in favour of Evolution. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_views_on_evolution#The_creation_of_man_in_the_Quran 1) "It is He who has created you out of clay" (Surah 6:2), 2) "It was He who brought you into being from the earth..." (11:61), 3) "We first created you from dust, then from a sperm drop, then from clotted blood, then a lump of flesh, both shaped and unshaped, so that We might manifest to you [Our power]" (22:5), 4) "He originated the creation of man from clay, then He made his progeny from an extract of a humble fluid" (32:7-8) 5) "...and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?"(21:30) Now Guys here my understanding If i didn't understood english wrong here, RED are Supporting Human Createdness and GREEN supports Human was evolved. Now verse 4 clearly indicate GOD first created us from CLAY, then men developed their generations with we know how Also verse 3 indicates > Clay + Process of Pregnancy We all know how pregnancy works and its indicated in Quran. But why don't we consider CLAY as evolution??? I mean it was Big Bang > A Perfect Earth > Cooled Down to Water + Life + Single Cell Organisms from water and Sand or whatever. It needed water but founding constituent of cell could have been clay or sand or anything > eventually multi cells >>>>> Perfect specie of animals and humans with minds and beautiful auto focusing eyes etc So Whats the hurdle here???? I know one hurdle, in one of the verse God says [ Allah ] said, "O Iblees, what prevented you from prostrating to that which I created with My hands? Were you arrogant [then], or were you [already] among the haughty?" 38:75 This verse indicates that God indeed made humans with hands But Evolution is 19th century issue Gods Beatific vision is 11th century issue Mutazilla didn't believed in Gods beatific vision, asharies did Sunni Sufi also have all kinds of views Wahabi probably believe in Beatific vision while if i am not wrong Shias donot believe as such So if God has no hand, then obviously that whole thing is an allegory. In that sense Quran indicated 1400 years ago how Living things were made from clay, which evolution explained much later. What i am missing here, where is my reasoning wrong????
  6. Salam, I thought of discussing a topic that was not talked about in any of these forums since I felt it was a very important issue to discuss. Laziness & Procrastination in the eyes of Islams and ahlu el beit. How to deal with and how to overcome it? What are the seeds of Procrastination? And is it truly a product of the shaytan? Now this is what I think of all of this. 1. Due to Procastination and laziness we tend to loose out on many opportunities that is coming our way. 2. We become less active physically, spiritually and even mentally. 3. Due to lack of productivity we loose the essence in our life. We become empty inside with no meaning since we spend our time doing nothing and accomplishing nothing. 4. We never reach our potential. We keep on putting off doing the same thing over and over again so we literally end up getting stuck in the same square NEVER moving forward. And due to that we feel unhappy about ourselves and we start getting depressed about the state that we are in. 5. YES we do know what the solution to our problem is..WE KNOW that we have to get up and do whatever needs to be done to move forward in our life..not only to make ourselves better but also to improve the quality of our life whether it is spiritually, physically, mentally or financially. 6. We are our own obstacles so how can we overcome that?? And how can we defeat the "Laziness syndrome" ?? 7. What did the prophet P.B.U.H say about this? What did ahlu el beit say about this? 8. How can we use Islam to help us overcome this and live a better life? All of these interesting questions and statements I felt I should share with you so we can open our eyes to this issue. If you look around to see many of the wealthy people or people with power worked very hard to get to where they are..yes there is exceptions and yes there are certain people that abused power and got rich just by doing nothing but that is not what I am talking about. I'm talking about the people that got there by working hard. Why are we as muslims still lacking behind unable to produce great things and to get to great places? It is because we are unwilling to work hard and put all our energies toward reaching our goals. So how can we change that?? What do you guys think?? “Everyone who is being overtaken by death asks for more time while everyone who still has time makes excuses for procrastination” Imam Ali
  7. Salam Alaykom brothers and sisters! I wanted to kindly ask every one who's using Instagram to like my cousin's photo here: It's a contest by Canon where the person with the most likes wins, I would really appreciate your help and may Allah swt reward you!

more so far because the internet is down on my street, but I want to arrange the sermons (and letters) into an invisible table, so going down are sermons 1 to 50, then 5 columns across. instead of just one list where you have to scroll all the way down. I want a similar layout for letters/ Please note - I am not asking you to code for me. I need/ want to learn this myself, so can you show me how to code it so I can do it myself? Im on a deadline to (try and) finish the entire book this weekend inshaAllah to be launched on monday, so while the majority of audio is recorded, I need to tidy up the pages hugely. Many thanks
  9. I'm a young Muslim girl who knows my wrong and rights, Alhamdulillah I don't drink smoke or anything. My brother brought a Bundaberg pineapple and coconut sparkling drink, I checked the ingredients it dosnt show any alcohol ingredient, as I was drinking it one of my friends tell me that it has alcohol in it, I searched it up online and found out that they have 0.5% alcohol in their drinks. I'm confused, am I nejes? Do I have to make ghussul or is their anything I could do? Do I throw away the drinks? Is 0.5% something that is haram? Someone help please?
  10. I've just been on the phone to the Police because a girl on Facebook contacted me saying that had been raped by her boyfriend and he won't let her leave the house. I tried to get her address but she was too scared to tell me and now I can't get in contact with her at all. Please could we all make du'a for her? I'm worried sick
  11. Asalam walaykum. I am a muslim sister from a Sunni household but after researching both the Sunni and Shia aqeedah I have found that that the Shias are on the true path of Islam. I now consider myself to be a Shia but my family do not know. They despise the Shias more than anything and I know if I were to tell them that I do not follow the teachings of ahlul sunnah wal jama'ah they will disown me and kick me out of the house. Many people have told me to just do taqiyya, but for how long can I keep lying to them just to make them happy? The truth will come out eventually and I'm thinking about the issues I'm going to have in the future. Like when I decide to get married, will I need my parents permission even if they do not speak to me and have disowned me? I've been told that if you die and your parents are angry with you that you will never enter paradise even if your are a pious Muslim. I'm torn between pleasing Allah swt and my parents. I don't what to do. Do I just come out and tell them? or do I just keep lying to them to make them happy. Please help. Jazakallahu khair
  12. Asalamu alaikum, I am a devoted Muslim in my early teens. I pray and read Quran everyday and have never drank, fornicated (sex out of marriage) , or gambled in my life. Yet I feel that my faith is just waning away. It stared a few years back when I was still in school. Most of my friends either believe in God only or are atheists and do the opposite of whatever I do. Aside from that the knowledge that I have read and saw across the internet that proves that things like homosexuality being alright and that its fine to just have sex without being married has gotten me to the point were I feel I don't need Islam in my life. I always do go back to it thought and try my best to not give up on it but I feel that someday it will disappear. I have talked to my parents many times about this yet I have realized that if I keep on asking they'll start to get angry and disappointed of me. For now I am trying my best to stay strong but I feel that on the inside I really don't want to be a Muslim anymore and just do what the west does since it seems so successful. I still believe in God but I'm losing hope in Islam just to remind you. I hope someone can help me get over with this and help stand strong against all the temptations of the shaitan and what the west has to offer since I feel like Nabih Musa when he was constantly seduced by maids and asked God for help but was still forced to stay there instead of God sending him to prison.
  13. Asalamalikum, I know this isn't a therapy website, but I just want to know if this happens to anyone else? I have these weird thoughts/voices in my head that are not nice. I don't like them, and sometimes I feel suicidal and I roll up in a ball and cry. I don't like to explain what exactly happens inside my head because I don't like thinking about. But basically it's nothing nasty or dirty. It's all about God and other religious stuff. Just imagine literally hearing the Shaytan talking to you, and telling you bad stuff about God..and etc.. The thoughts or voices don't tell me to do anything bad, just bad stuff about my creator. These weird things cause me to sometimes pray faster to keep my mind just moving, sometimes I have to sleep with The Quran hugged to my chest. I mean they aren't nice. I have no doubt in Allah, his messenger, Islam, or Ahulbayet. Of course I am always sending my sallam to The Holy Prophet and HIs Pure Family. And always saying "asgafurallah rabi" or "a'thubilAllah min alshaydan rajam" Literally ALL the time. It gets annoying because I wish to say these for the sake of remembering Allah. But no, I have to say them because to get these thoughts out of my mind, which half the time doesn't work. My mom wants me to see a therapist but I don't want to. Does this happen to anyone else?I always fear Allah will hate me, or I will go to hell. I don't know what to do? What in the world could it be?My biggest fear which causes me to sometimes commit self harm, cry, etc.,is the fact that Allah might not forgive me, that he hates me because of these thoughts or voices. (I can't tell the difference) Thanks so much for taking the time to read and answer. May Allah Bless you all Duniya w Akira.
  14. Salaams brothers and sisters, Need your help in some of these questions. 1) Which Islamic nation printed the Holy Quran for the first time? 2) Who wrote the first Spanish translation of the Holy Quran? 3) What did Imam Baqir achieve in the 70th Hijri? 4) Which war did Imam Hassan join at the age of 20? Ahsant. God bless
  15. Salam Alaikum With a lot of courage and nights that I have cried myself to sleep, I have gathered the courage to take the opinion and thoughts of what others would think of my situation and what is the best course of action for me now. I am a syeda, shia ithna asheri girl. I write nohas and recite and am engaged in several other religious activities too out of my peanent job in a MNC firm for 3.5 years. Since the past 7 years I have been in a deep relationship with a Sunni man, our intention being of marriage. I met him 8n 2009 when I was 16, and he was 18. No haram activities were done by us as we wanted to put up the topic of marriage in front of our parents when we are older. He is a very good person at heart and wanted to know more about the Ahlaybayt a.s., aways helps people, orphans, and whoever ge can, doesn't smoke, drink etc. Now I am 23 and he is 25. We are of different countries (India/Pakistan). He has become a Shia Ithna Asheri hiding from his parents as he mashaAllah got the ziarat of Imam Sahibaz Zama in his dreams on the day of Eid Fitr this end of Ramadhan 2015. Our parents found out about us being together in 2010 and it was horrible. My parents house arrested me for 6 months amd said I can't marry a Sunni and a Pakistani no matter what. They made me take oaths on Quran after 6 months and let me go back to study after 6 months in my university. Once I got back we were together again without our parents knowing as we could not live without each other like the parents wanted. We realized we couldnt live like this forever so we opened the topic up to pur parents but all hell broke loose again. I being the girl had to hear so many things from my family to an extent my parents saying that I'll die for them if I even think of a sunni and pakistani. I told them that he has converted and a very practising momin but they made fun of me and my pain. They said no matter what I will never marry him. The guy's family as well were against a shia and were giving threaths of escalating the matter to the police. Turns out I read my fathers chat log and he was in contact with the guys father saying "We can't let this happen and we have to deal with this emotionally as they are not kids anymore. Even if we take matters to police they can turn the case against us." I went for vacation with my family to India this year and there under family parents and relatives pressure I got engaged to a Syyed guy (he was out of the country, his parents did the ceremony). When my parents asked me to speak to him and get to know him I said NEVER, because I am truly in love with only 1 man and will always be just with him. Parents said that there and my relation is only to the point that I get married to the syyed guy and not to the sunni one. I kept on saying that he is not sunni and they kept on saying that even if he dies and is of gold I will never marry him. Just to be cleat, my parents love me to death they always gave me everythin I wanted, gave me the best education, best schooling everything! Just this thing they are not giving it to me. Now that I am out of India and back in the country I work and live with mom dad and siblings, I keep meeting my true love whenever I can and no matter whatever has happened we still discuss islam, talk about ahlaybayt a.s., imam mehdi a.s., listen to sayed ammar lectures together (him in his house me in my house) and talk.on whatsapp viber emails. I told my parents that I dont want to marry. My parents are saying that its because of u ur engaged and that now theres no turning back or else the entire society will not let us live and will spit on us. They told me to sacrifice my dreams and happiness for them like they sacrificed for me. They say that they have loved me so much so now I have to listen to them and agree for the marriage. The sayyed guy sent me some clothes during eid but I never wore them and will never do as my heart is only attached to my true love not the one I am being forced to marry under the umbrella of my parent's image and society's acceptance. I have never spoke to the sayed guy, my parents travelled outside to the country he lives in to meet him and my parents say that he is very well financially established, good looking, religious and funny. I cant never see myself happy with anyone else except my true love. I cry myself to sleep since I have come back from India. I dont know what I should do. I keep praying to Allah, ahlaybayt a.s. to guide me and help me and him. He as well is in a very bad state but keeps telling me that love for the sake of Allah and hate for the sake of Allah. He tells me that I should come as close to Allah as possible so that my journey is not as difficult. I love Allah, Ahlaybayt a.s. and Allah knows that I can sacrifice my entire self for his and my Ahlaybayt a.s. sake but it's really difficult knowing that is it too late for me? What should I do? I dont even know if its possible for me to break the engagement as even this is not in my hands as everyone in my relatives and family knows about it. We are a higher middle class family with office and a side business and my father says that its better I die than ruin their image, izzat. I always keep thinking that even if I do get married to that sayyed I may not be able to give that man what he deserves. My heart is completely for my love and not for anyone else. I told my mother this but they said that just get married we will see later. I know that Allah doesnt test a soul with more than it can handle, but its very difficult for me. I want to be with my tre love in this dunya and akhira, but my parents just because he is not sayyed like us is not accepting him. I am in the taqleed of Imam Sistani and his ruling is that syyeda girls can marry no syyeds but my family is not accepting. I prayed to Allah for death as I cant suicide as its haram and niether can do anything else that's haram. I prayed for death as I can't let anyone else touch me!!! The pain is unbearable and only Allah knows what I am going through but havong third party views on my situation would be appreciable. At the end of the day I know that maybe this is the test of Allah - and I keep telling myself as the quran says that ull never achieve rightiousness unless u give away that which u love the most, and only Allah knows that my true love is who I love the most. Please give me ur view on this and how should I approach this sitution. Till today I am silent at home and my parents know that I am against the marriage,they threaten me that they'll make me quit my job and keep me home if I dont change my mind. What option do I have than to stay quiet!??? What does Allah want me to do!!!!! T_T JazakAllah khayrun min jaza.
  16. Hello, My name is Aman. I am born to two of the MOST RELIGIOUS families of Karachi, Pakistan. I am the great grandson of SHAH ABDUL LATIF BHITTAI (Mother's Side), and i am also the great grandson of MORSHA BAADSHAH - ROHRI (Father's Side). I am a complete believer and i have great Love for Mola Ali a.s. I respect every branch of Shia Islam. I am 15 and i am truly fed up of my house. I have two sisters and both my parents and i live in a joint family. i am really weak in studies though i was a contant topper in Dubai but since i shifted back to pakistan, it has been really difficult for me to cope in studies. i get taunted everyday by my parents upon my poor results and they scold and beat me every single time. i also misbehave sometimes to be honest but i regret it asap. i feel like running away but it is quite unsafe here in pakistan. can i have a valid solution to this ridiculous family issue !
  17. Salaam brothers and sisters. Me and my family are in a dire situation and we need help. I'm new on this site so I don't know if I'm allowed to say this. But we need to make an urgunt istikhara. Does anyone have any person who can help us out? Are they reliable? I just hope I'm allowed to post this on here. Our future is on the line and we don't know what to do next. Thank you and the moderators if this is allowed to be posted and to anyone who can help us.
  18. Salam, I was wondering if anyone who has access to a Uni or college library could get the following full articles for me? My institution doesn't have subscription to any of these journals and I don't want to pay $100-150 for these. http://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/laneur/PIIS1474-4422(09)70062-6.pdf http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v443/n7113/abs/nature05292.html http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15629758 Thanks a lot
  19. Bismillah Firstly, for most of us if we want to help the world then we must help ourselves and do what is best for ourselves, if the whole Ummah commits to improving their knowledge and faith in Allah then we have collectively done something to help the Ummah, by helping ourselves. Secondly, there are some of us who are afraid of doing what pleases Allah because we fear being condemned or disapproved of by people, by preferring people over Allah you have effectively sent an insult to your creator. Thirdly, there are many Shias who are wishing for martyrdom, everyone wants to die quicker to be pleased by Allah but only a very few, tiny portion of people are willing to struggle in this world to live a long life and please Allah, so many of us want to be pleased so few of us wanting to please Allah, in this world we have a chance to please Allah, in the next world we will pleased with him. Fourthly, this may apply to all of us, whether we intend good doesn't matter, evil is in this world because of our actions, actions which displeases Allah, so for all of us if we are not certain that an act is wholly good then there is no harm but we should all avoid sins, evil is a lack of goodness therefore if we do only good there should be no evil in this world.
  20. وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّينَ لَمَا آتَيْتُكُم مِّن كِتَابٍ وَحِكْمَةٍ ثُمَّ جَاءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ ۚ قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَىٰ ذَٰلِكُمْ إِصْرِي ۖ قَالُوا أَقْرَرْنَا ۚ قَالَ فَاشْهَدُوا وَأَنَا مَعَكُم مِّنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ فَمَن تَوَلَّىٰ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ .And [recall, O People of the Scripture], when Allah took the covenant of the prophets, [saying], "Whatever I give you of the Scripture and wisdom and then there comes to you a messenger confirming what is with you, you [must] believe in him and support him." [ Allah ] said, "Have you acknowledged and taken upon that My commitment?" They said, "We have acknowledged it." He said, "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses." And whoever turned away after that - they were the defiantly disobedient. (3:81,. 82) 1- How, did the messengers who were not physically present help the prophet Muhammad saww, as per their promise? 2- If the messengers were not helped the prophet Muhammad saww then they would be disobedient to Allah, was it possible? 3- The prophet Muhammad has been sent for the entire mankind as messenger till the end of tme . يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ شَاهِدًا وَمُبَشِّرًا وَنَذِيرًا O Prophet, indeed We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner. (33:45) وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds. (21:107) How he is being helped by the messengers to full fill their promise presently?
  21. Salam, I have taken an interest in the Shia way of Islam and learning about it has brought back my faith (I come from a Sunni background). However, in the process I feel a bit lost and don't know where to turn, it would be nice to meet some sisters so I have some guidance on some of my questions. I have gone to some gatherings but they are mainly in Farsi, and I feel very left out attending! Are there any other sisters in London facing the same thing? Thank you
  22. I started wearing hijab seven days ago and I have been getting more male attention than usual when away from my husband, and I don't know what to do. Naturally my husband is unhappy with the attention, and I'm concerned too. He thinks maybe I'm not conducting myself properly but my hair isn't showing, my arms aren't showing, my legs aren't showing, my neck isn't showing, I'm not wearing makeup, I'm not cussing, I'm not being obnoxious, and I'm not engaging strangers. I keep to myself when I'm by myself, and if anything my eyes are usually on my phone. I'm thinking about taking the scarf off and just dressing modestly, if its just going to get me all this attention. I dont know. Maybe I'm just not ready. Does anyone have any advice? Please help. This is really upsetting to me.
  23. As Salam Alaikum, Sister I am planning to buy a gift for my wife but I can't choose one of them. Could you please help me about your opinion. It is very special day for us and I want to buy something important for her. JazakAllah
  24. Salaamu Aleikum Sisters! Just a question! I went to my familys for the holidays as they still celebrate Christmas and what-not and I had to mke an appearance out of respect to my family, but I realized I never brought a hijab with me! Id like to prayer Fajr tomorrow morning...how may I do so? What can I use that will make my prayer acceptable? Thank you!!! XO
  25. How do we rely on God? If for example I need a wife, do I sit in a dark room all day and pray and ask God to deliver to me a wife. Or do I go and ask help from another human and see the human as a means through which I receive God's mercy. So if I ask a man for help, would that be considered asking God for help? For example: If I go to a man and say "I need your help" but I am thinking of the man as a means for God's help, through the human do I receive God's help?
