  1. I hope its not from wahhabies to wahhabies :cry: http://rt.com/news/168100-qatar-build-barcelona-mosque/
  2. Asalam Alykum, Are there any centers where there are native Arab speakers? Is there a such a community that one can join within the United Kingdom specially in England. Ma'Salam
  3. As salam aleikum, After finding out there is a sunni masjid right behind my house, I have decided that I would go there now and then to offer salah. I want to go so that I don't pray all the time on my own and to benefit from a place dedicated to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. Anyway I want to go but of course I will not pray the sunni way so my aim is to be as discreet as possible with my "shia" salah. Unfortunately, most of the time sunni brothers focus on a few points that they notice, even though they might be busy in prayer : - Hands unfolded (of course) - Turbah (of course) - Pointing the finger in tashahud (some of them consider it vital and even argue on how to raise the finger...) - Doing qunut (even if optional) So I have a couple of questions/remarks, can you please bring some science about them : 1/ I will keep my hands unfolded, of course. I can argue I am an Algerian maliki. That's no problem. 2/ I have this tasbih with a small turbah at its end about the size of my thumbnail or a small coin). Is that big enough for a valid sajadah ? I have read somewhere that the place of prostration should be as large as your thumb, but if we speak about the whole finger, it's weird but I have seen some turbahs much smaller in some mosques. That way, I would put the tasbih on the ground and use it for sajdah without being looked at like an alien. 3/ Does pointing the finger unvalid the prayer ? Like just pointing it, not moving it up and down like some of them do ? 4/ Can I pronounce a small qunut before rukuu without raising my hands ? I know you will probably say I am being a bit stressed out but I have been to a number of sunni mosques before, but it was a long time ago and decided I wouldn't go back unless in major cases, because I have been badly treated by a few guys who were kind of rude. I would like to make this a pleasant place to worship Allah, rather that a "place of taqqiyah" if you know what I mean... Thanks for your time Maa salama
  4. hello all, i had a dream a few nights ago about attending Imam Ali's (a.s.) birthday event. so me and my mom and my aunty and my little sister were attending this event in a place that looked like a mosque (somewhere in iran because all the people there spoke farsi). my aunty and i were debating on which coloured chador (iranian burqa) to wear. i could pick between three shades of red. either a hot/bright red coloured one, or a pinky-red/coral coloured one or a burgundy/maroon coloured one. i wanted to either wear the bright red or the burgundy one and my aunty kept persuading me to wear the coral one but i wanted to wear the bright red one because my mom had taken the burgundy one. so i finally put it on (we were wearing black hijab underneath) and we entered the mosque. as i entered i was suddenly all alone, and i saw many women sitting in the mosque and it was quite noisy, now in my dream i knew i was attending this event to help around/volunteer and the helpers were assigned certain colours to wear depending on their roles. i was a guard/helper to show people where to go or find things and make sure everything runs smoothly, and this role had the colour red and other roles were blue or pink or green. so i entered and everyone was looking at me but decided not to care too much because i knew i was there to help and for a good reason, but also thought that maybe it was because i was wearing red, and in my dream i thought i was there to help in a mourning death anniversary event. so thats why i thought people were looking at me because i was wearing red on such an event. but regardless i did my thing and was standing there. and this girl (probably 20 years old) who was very sweet, kind and bubbly came up to me and she asked how i was etc...and then she asked me you know what this event is about right? and i said yeah it's the martyrdom/death anniversary of Imam Hussain (a.s.) in karbala and she was like noo it's the birthday of Amir al momenin (a.s.) in a very "happy, don't you feel lucky?!?!" kinda of tone, and then i became really happy and overwhelmed to be volunteering at such an event, and then i woke up. p.s. everyone was wearing black which was surprising to me because i wondered why people aren't wearing happier colours on such a joyous event. i would appreciate it if any of you could give me some info on what it could mean, because i feel like there is a lot of contradicting moments in the dream haha thank you :)
  5. Religious harmony: Dousing the flames of sectarianism GILGIT: The ongoing Tablighi Ijtima in Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) has provided an opportunity to bring Sunni and Shia sects closer in a manner the region has never witnessed before. On Monday, Maulana Tariq Jamil delivered a sermon in the central Shia mosque, preaching peace, tolerance and respect for each other’s beliefs. Jamil is a well-known Deobandi preacher whose religious activities took root in Raiwind, Lahore. He is one of the few hundred scholars who reached Gilgit from various parts of Pakistan to participate in the Ijtima being held in Gilgit from June 9 to 11. Ijtima is a Sunni religious congregation held over a couple of days, where often hundreds of thousands gather to hear sermons. The one in Gilgit was organised under the banner of the Tablighi Jamaat. “Differences in beliefs don’t mean people should kill each other, Islam doesn’t allow this,” said Jamil in a speech delivered at the Central Imamia Mosque in Gilgit. He had been invited there by Shia clerics in a move clearly intended to reflect tolerance at some level. Members of the Masjid Board were also present at the occasion. The board is a representative body of Shias and Sunnis which was formed after violence on the fractious lines of religion led to imposition of curfew in Gilgit during 2012. “We are all Muslims therefore we will have to accept this reality (of religious differences). We are here to preach love and respect, and not hatred.” Jamil’s sermon lasted over 30 minutes and urged adherents of each sect to follow the golden principles laid down in the Quran and ahadith. Top Shia scholar in G-B, Agha Rahat Hussaini reciprocated in a similar fashion, thanking Jamil for accepting his invitation and addressing the congregation at the imambargah. “We are lucky to have you here among us and it’s a great pleasure listening to you,” said Rahat Hussaini. He hoped the Ijtima would promote peace and love among the residents of G-B. In turn, Hussaini accepted Tariq Jamil’s invitation to participate in the Ijtima, saying he would be pleased to attend it. If Hussaini makes it to the Ijtima, it would be the first time in the history of G-B that a Shia intellectual would have participated in a predominantly Sunni congregation. Earlier on Sunday, two Shia lawmakers – Raziuddin Rizvi and Didar Ali – called on Tariq Jamil at the congregation and asked him to play a role in spreading peace in the region. The Tablighi Ijtama kicked off in Gilgit on Sunday. According to rough estimates, more than 300,000 people from all over the country are participating in it. “It’s a rare opportunity for top Sunni and Shia scholars to have demonstrated equally rare respect for each others’ beliefs,” said former advisor to the prime minister Maulana Attaullah Shahab. Shahab is also a senior Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl leader. In an attempt to avert any untoward incidents, law enforcement agencies stepped up security in the city. However, the gesture of peace from both sects eased the otherwise tense atmosphere of the city in matters related to religion. Gilgit straddles religious fault lines; back-to-back incidents of sectarian violence marred the region last year. At least 70 people were killed and many more were injured in different parts of G-B.

  6. Assalaamu Aleykom brothers and sisters, My name is 'Isa. I am a revert to Islam and by the Mercy of Allah ive been able to learn about the Ahlul 'Bayt and to follow their spiritual guidance. I am very enthusiastic about practicing my faith, but have found that finding Muslim friends is very difficult. It is more difficult because of my Shia leanings. I ask of you to give me sound advice in this regard, taking into consideration that I live in Massachusetts and that most of the mosques here are Sunni oriented. Jazakallah
  7. A man set fire to a mosque in Brussels on Monday, killing its 47-year-old imam and injuring another person, in an arson attack that destroyed a large part of the building, police told AFP. Police officials at the scene "confirmed it was the imam" who died when a firebomb was thrown into the Shiite mosque, police spokeswoman Marie Verbeke said. The imam, who succumbed to the fumes in the burnt-out place of worship, was with a second person, who was lightly injured, at the time of the attack. "A suspect was taken into custody at the scene," Verbeke added. A witness saw the suspect, a man, set fire to the building, Verbeke said, but no other details were immediately available. Anderlecht Mayor Vincent Van Goidsenhoven said the suspect threw a Molotov cocktail at the mosque, Belga news agency reported. "The mosque was apparently almost entirely burned down," Verbeke said. Belgian public broadcasters RTBF and a stream of Twitter users said that a group of at least 50 people had gathered outside the Shiite mosque. Police said they received a call at 6:45 pm (1745 GMT) and the body was pulled out 45 minutes later. The area around the mosque, near Belgium's main international railway hub, has a large immigrant Muslim population.
  8. Top notch article! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/the-photos-saudi-arabia-doesnt-want-seen--and-proof-islams-most-holy-relics-are-being-demolished-in-mecca-8536968.html
  9. As Salaam Alaykkum, I'm a revert and my parents aren't aware of my intention to be a Muslim. I can go to mosque to pray only for asr and dhuhr because a mosque is opposite to my school. I just join the Muslims making their way towards the mosque. But if I am sweating after playing, should I change cloths just before prayer? My Muslim friends bring cloths but, my mother asks y I need extra cloths? Just wudu would do to purify me? Or anything else I should do?? Regards, Saleem Khan.
  10. (salam) I thought this was beautiful tbh, thoughts? SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento mosque broke religious barriers today when, for the first time, it allowed a Christian congregation inside to hold Easter services. Spiritual Life Center lost its lease one week ago, leaving its parishioners without a place to worship for Easter. That’s when Salam Community Center on College Oak Drive offered its mosque to the Christian church. “I mean, we saw the opportunity to help them,”said mosque spokesman Adnan Syed Traditionally, non-Muslim churches are not allowed to hold meetings inside mosques. Spiritual Life’s reverend, Michael Moran, called it history in the making. “My heart is filled with generosity for the Muslim community to allow us to meet here today on Easter,” said Taylor Moran, a parishioner. “I heard people are coming from the bay area — all over the place just to witness this one-of-a-kind event. And we’re just happy to be a part of it,” said Syed. Worshipers packed the Salam Center for both Easter services to celebrate one of the most important days of the year for Christians. “It’s just a once in a lifetime, and I hope it spreads,” said Molly White, a parishioner. Today marks a breaking of tradition with the hopes of creating a new one. “We’d love to see more of this not only here, but across the nation,” said Syed. Spiritual Life Center is still looking for a new place to worship. http://sacramento.cb..._xmhV4.facebook
  11. What is your opinion on having partitions and curtains between the men and women section in Islamic centers? Should they be or shouldn't they be?
