  2. I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!
  3. What are your thoughts on Ahlul-Bayt?
  4. Hi all, I was wondering, the only time the Ahlul-Bayt are mentioned in the Quran, the verses refer to the prophet's wives and not the household of Hazrat Ali RA. Verse 33:32- O wives of the Prophet, you are not like anyone among women. If you fear Allah , then do not be soft in speech [to men], lest he in whose heart is disease should covet, but speak with appropriate speech. Verse 33:33- And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet's] household [Ahlul-Bayt], and to purify you with [extensive] purification. See, these verses suggest that the Ahlul-Bayt are the prophet's wives and not the family of Hazrat Ali RA. My dear and beloved Shia brothers and sisters, what do you think about this? MuhammadXII
  5. In accordance with the Qur'an and the sound traditions of the noble prophet of Islam (a.s), who are his Ahlul-Bayt?
  6. Salaam all, So I need a clarification on what thaqlayn actually means: Thaqlayn means: A) Two things B) Two weighty things C) Two things of equal weight
  7. Is hate for non-Sunnis being taught in today's masjids? I don't see this "hate" going on in the masjid I attend. I'm in the south (Alabama) and the masjid I attend is Sunni but there are Muslims from all backgrounds there. This weekend the masjid had a "Day of Dignity" in the park & there were Sunnis and Shias serving the homeless together: spreading dawah, brought food and the medical doctors of the masjid came out and offered medical screening to the homeless. From my eyes this is the work that muslims should be doing. Meanwhile I was in GA listening to Shaykh Tahir ul-Qadri and Shaykh Ninowy. Shaykh Ninowy is Iraqi-Syrian and lives in Georgia. He is Sunni & in the past gave this lecture on the Ahlul Bayt: http://youtu.be/QacDiZHyrzs?t=35m14s It's long but if you start @ 35:14 you will hear him talking about how the Sunni vs. Shia rivalry is intellectual terrorism and that the differences between the two is no excuse for hate, and how other Sunni scholars tried to discourage him from talking about the Ahlul Bayt. When I first started learning about Islam I did not understand the animosity between Sufis and Shias and Sunnis. In my mind it's all Islam and we are all Muslims. I'm seeing that a lot of "information" on Islamic forums is leaning more toward extremist indoctrination/Jihad recruitment. And those who hold these extremist views tend to be cut from the same cloth: mostly males, reverts or next generation immigrants, walking, young (under 30), poor/low income (don't work, underemployed and angry), lives with parents, uneducated/undereducated, unmarried They ( who ever is the system orchestrator of extremist indoctrination) apparently knows who to target. Young males who don't have anything. No independence, no job, no money, no education, no car, no woman. They present them with the greatest gift given to man: Islam. Society has rejected them from higher education and these people present them with knowledge that is greater. I can see now how brain washing these young people can be easy and profitable for their cause.
  8. If you would like to post your favorite Hadith from the Ahlul-Bayt (as), I am looking for some powerful messages!!!! I'll start with one of my favorites :) "Only He Who has the Power to Punish can Pardon." ~Imam Ali (as)
