  1. 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!

    NEW to Islam, need Help

    As-salaamu 'aleikum, I reverted to Shia Islam 1 year ago and wanted to ask if someone could list me highly recommended Prayers and Duas, their times when to be prayed, and location, etc. For example: I want to know good daily prayers like the prayers on Friday. I don't know anything about these. Or special actions that should be done on special days of the week. You know... just give me everything you know and are sure about ^^ I'm gonna list the things i have learned so far, or I'm learning, or i know that i want to learn. Just so that it is not repeated. I know the benefits and times of recitation for the following prayers: - 5 daily Prayers, Salat al Layl, Ayat al Kursi, Dua Imam e Zaman, Dua al-Ma'rifa-tul-Imam, Dua al-Ghareeq, Dua al-Ahd, Dua al-Nudba, Thank you very much for your help. Please also state good literature for a beginner (hadith, other books) The GOAL for me is to build a SOLID BASIS, a steadfast and consistent level of iman, because i had problems with that (flactuations). I need a good routine of Prayer, Dua, Deeds, Actions etc. Please don't state the obvious like: Reading the holy Book, or saying Takbir ( xxx times a day), etc. That is what I'm trying to achieve anyways. Thank you! May God bless you and give you the same reward for every word i recite or read.
  3. Salam my dear brothers and sisters, I just thought I would take this opportunity to share with you a beautiful new Ramadan nasheed. If you like it then share it with family and friends. It's in Arabic but with English translations. I wish you all a happy and blessed ramadan.

  5. Any country that is not under the American government regime, is either under attack, framed, or in a war. Any country that is under the dictatorship may have an artificial boost of economy, and may have some sort of security(which is ironic as they make global terror and terrorists) - but all in exchange of a psychological & soft warfare declared on its citizens, by the billions of dollars governments spend, on order to keep citizens weak and asleep to the reality of the world. The way they achieved all these puppets through almost every government in the world is through colonialism. They did not split and divide the world for nothing - then leave it like that. They instilled corrupt governments for every place to inject their propaganda by the engineers - that seek how to change and shape the world and the people as they like with bad intentions. But of course they plan and Allah Swt plans and Allah Swt is the best of planners - as the Holy Quran al Kareem says. This is just one of the many reasons why Sayed Ali Khamenei (Ha) calls America "the great satan". ‏اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد Thank God we have a good leader like Ayatullah Khamenei (Ha).

  7. اسلام عليكم I've been living in an area where I don't have to think about where to get my halal meat from.. I moved to Florida recently and I've been a vegetarian because I don't know a trusted butcher shop. I live in the Fort Lauderdale area and I need a trusted halal butcher shop. I don't care if I have to drive for hours. Thank you all.
  8. I am interested to know more about Shia Sect I will need help from members of this forum
  9. can you give me both the shia and sunni view on this matter ! he 40 years old and he told me that he wanted to convert to islam , so I took him to local masjid , and I became witness on his conversion , but he still doesn't know much about wuduu & salah , so I show him videos and explained to him . I will still teach him about fasting and ramadan soon but their is problem he was ex-christian so I think he wasn't circumcised so is his salah accepted or is he still not true muslim yet ? I don't know if I should tell him about it , is it important !?
  10. I am new to this forum, I am sunni, but am considering joining shia islam, i am just wondering if sunnis are allowed on this forum or if this is exclusively for shias.....
  11. My name is Carol, and I belong to a Christian family. I've always disliked the way the Christians taught about God, and became an Atheist about a year and a half ago. But I've always been drawn to Islam, and my lover has given me the little push I needed to start learning about it. He can't answer all my questions, as we live half a world apart right now, so I'm looking for others who can teach me what I need to know before officially becoming Muslim. I can learn most things by myself, but I need some suggestions on what to research and learn about before making my decision. Thanks in advance.
  12. Salam Alaikoum, I would like to give a brief history on my situation before seeking assistance. I am a shi'i muslim born, but my parents weren't practicing muslims and didn't teach me the steps for prayers. We were living in a sunni muslim country early in my life. I learned the steps for prayers the sunni way back then. However, in my early teen age year, we moved to another country with no islamic teaching in school. All these things, in addition to laziness by me, has led me to not pray. So currently I am in my mid 20s and I decided to start praying. Most guides state extra optional things to do before and during prayers. I don't wish to do the extra optional things at this stage. So my understanding is that these are the compulsory steps. Ghusl: 1- Immerse whole body in water (Does a bath in the bathroom work?) OR 1- clean every najasat (semen) 2- Wash head to neck 3- Wash right side of body from shoulder to foot 4- Wash left side of body from shoulder to foot Wudu: 1- Niyya: I am seeking closeness to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì 2- Wash face completely from forehead to chin using right hand 3- Wash right arm completely from elbow to finger-tips using left hand 4- Wash left arm completely from elbow to finger-tips using right hand Don't use extra water after here 5- Use right hand to wash from the top of your head till just before forehead 6- Use right hand to wash your right foot from toe-tips till ankle 7- Use left hand to wash your left foot from toe-tips till ankle Does any marjeh allow shower without wudu? Prayer: I- Rakah 1: 1- Niyya: I offer this [prayer-name] prayer [number-of-rak3at] rak3at seeking closeness to Allah 2- Stand. Lift hand to ear. AllahuAkbar 3- Arms down say Fatiha then Ikhlas 4- AllahuAkbar 5- Ruku3. Subahana rabiya al 3azeem wa bihamdih 6- Stand. Sami3a Allah li man hamida. AllahuAkbar 7- Sujud. Subhana rabiya al A3la wa bihamdih 8- Sit. AllahuAkbar 9- Repeat 7 and 8 II: Rakah 2: 1- Repeat step 2-9 from Rakah 1 2- Tashahud 3- In Fajr only: Finishing III: Rakah 3: 1- Repeat step 2-9 from Rakah 1 but in step 3 no Ikhlas. 2- In Maghrib only: Tashahud + Finishing IV: Rakah 4: 1- Repeat step 2-9 from Rakah 1 but in step 3 no Ikhlas. 2- Tashahud + Finishing #Tashahud: 1- Ashhadu ana la illaha ila Allah wahdahoo la sharika lahoo. 2- Ashhdu ana mohamadan abduhu wa Rasoolahu. 3- Allahuma Salli 3ala Mohamad w 3ala alee Mohamad. #Finishing: 1- Assalamu 3alayka ayuhu al nabiyo wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh 2- Assalamu 3alayna wa 3ala 3ibadi Allah saleheen 3- Assalamu Alaykom wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu If i want to do missed prayers, do I have to say anything extra? Also do I have to do the missed prayer at the same timeslot of the actual prayer or at anytime? I would like from anyone to check if there is any mistake in them and answer the extra questions I have asked. Please make sure that I didn't miss any compulsory oral or physical action. Thank you
  13. Salam All! I'm going to be starting work in August and would like to find some Muslim roommates to share an apartment with. Is anyone in the area/will be moving and will need a place to stay?
  14. I am new to this website and I love it here. However, I have this little issue where if I open "My Content", there is no content shown. I currently only have one topic (excluding this one). Could this have anything to do with the restriction imposed on new comers for 10 posts?
  15. (salam) I have been trying for over two years now to grasp Standard 'Arabic fluently. I have purchased a few books (namely Living Language) to practice, but I just cannot seem to get the hang of it. Would any of those who have had to learn a new language share how I can make this easier upon myself? I am a native Urdu/Punjabi speaker and as you can see, fluent in English as well. I have had interest in 'Arabic for quite some time, so I would appreciate any suggestions. (wasalam)
  16. Salam, Is there any hadiths any references or anything the prophet or ahlulbayt used to use regarding incense? Jazakallah.
  17. As'salamu Alaykum, brothers and sisters of the Ummah.., My name is David, I am 32 years old and I currently live in the USA (Detroit, MI.) Like most Americans, I was raised in a Christian (Roman Catholic) home. I didn't start taking religion seriously until I was about 20. At that time I enrolled in Seminary, to study for the ministry. I learned a lot about the Christian faith, but the more I learned, the more questions and doubts I had. Long story short: I eventually dropped out of Seminary after completing my B.A. in Philosophy. For about 10 years, I was an agnostic. Religion still interested me, and I spent a lot of time reading about and studying the religions of the world; but I had no real beliefs, no faith. Eventually, I came across the Qur'an. The more I learned about Islam, the more I felt like I was coming into contact with the Truth. "This Qur'an is a revelation that is clear to the hearts of those endowed with knowledge." Qur'an 29:49. About a year ago, I took the Shahadah. Alhamdulillah! No one in my family is Muslim, nor did I have any Muslim friends when I converted (reverted) to Islam. Over the past year I have made a few friends at a local Shia Masjid, and I am very thankful for this. So.. I am new to Islam, new to Shia, and new to this forum. I just wanted to introduce myself, and say that I am here to learn as much as possible, and (Insha'Allah) hopefully make some new friends. (When I took the Shahadah, I did so at as Sunni Masjid. A few individuals from a local Sunni outreach program got in touch with me, took me to the Masjid and gave me some literature. They were constantly warning me about the dangers of Shia Islam. But.. given my curious nature, I couldn't help myself. I went to a local Shia Masjid and talked with the Imam. He explained some of the basic differences between Sunni and Shia, and suggested a couple of books for me to read. Since that time I've come to the conclusion, on my own, to embrace Shia Islam.) Like I said... I'm still new, and I have so much to learn. And with your help, perhaps you can help to further my knowledge of the Deen. Thanks for listening. Ma'a Salama! :shifty:
