  1. 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
  2. Can you pray if you are wounded? If yes, how can you make wudu if there is a bandaid or something covering the wound? (Injured in hand, leg or head)
  3. Salam. I am currently at university and tend to stay there for around 10 hours each day. This obviously means I am required to use the toilet frequently. However, due to the large usage of these toilets, it is not always hygienic to sit down and urinate. Anyone have any advice as to possible solutions? The prayer hall is far away and walking there every single time I need to use the toilet is very very time consuming. Is it haram to urinate whilst standing?
  4. As. Can someone help me with what do we say in jammah? I have never tried it and i dont know what its obligatory. Like should is say Surah al fatiha and surah al ikhlas? or no? And should i say something in sujood or no? And qunoot or no etc.
  5. Assalamualaikum. I am a new convert to Shia Islam, alhamdulillah. I am a female living in Birmingham, UK and I don't know any Shia muslims at the moment so I haven't been able to get a turbah to prostrate on. So first off, does anyone know where I can get one? But I've been wondering is a turbah compulsory because up til now I've been prostrating on paper.
  6. Salaam alaikum brothers and sisters! I had a question regarding the reasoning behind women standing behind men in prayers (for both married couples and in congregations). I am currently conducting research regarding the Symbolism of Salat for my symbolism class in the university. I was wondering the reasoning behind this positioning. I know from a logical standpoint it makes complete sense (I would never want to do sujood in front of man) but I want to know what is the Islamic reasoning. If possible include hadiths or any other form of justification. My professor is interested in the reasoning so I would like some evidence to support this. I wasn't sure if there are jurisdiction regarding this or hadiths. Thank you! Salaam
  7. Salaam brothers and sisters! I recently heard something alarming, and hopefully false. My friend's husband said that Sunnis cannot attend Shiite mosques because their prayers will be invalidated. What? Is this even true? Her husband is Salafi, so I am assuming this is a Salafi belief and not off the respect Sunni schools. Please help clear up this issue. My assumption, which hopefully is false, is that they believe they cannot pray in our mosques because they don't believe we are Muslim estagfurillah. Salaam (:
  8. Salaam alaikum respected brothers and sisters. I will keep this brief (I love ranting). I know that us Shiites derive our standing position in prayer--with hands at sides--from the concept of the natural standing position (Maliki Sunnis follow this as well and derive theres from the traditions of the people of Medina. So I would like a hadith supporting this, showing that Muhammad (s.a.w.) prayed in this manner. I usually use Al-Islam.org for this information, but the articles tend to be lengthy and overwhelming, so I would appreciate hadiths from my brothers and sisters. Thank you, salaam!
  9. Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu! I can't find a website that tells about the 2015 Lahore Shia Prayer Timings. Can anyone tell me? Also, I read that in Arabic it is "Duaad" not "Zuaad". But, many people say that Sunni's recite "Duaad" and Shias should say "Zuaad". What to do?
  10. salams, i've seen many people look up during prayer, especially when saying takbirs, coming up from ruku and mainly in qunoot. i was wondering if this is allowed because i've seen somewhere that you'll go blind if you look elsewhere from the place of sujood/turbah
  11. Sallam, Serious but ridiculous question, what is the Qibla in North America? I just Googled it and it said South-East and I have been prayer North-East all my life. Also I've been praying with the wrong Qibla at work for the longest time, so before I correct it I need to know what the Qibla is.
  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. Sallam, Quick question: Dua Al Ahad is recommended to be recited during the time of fajir for forty mornings. What happens when a sister is on her menstrual period, how does that work? Can she still recite the Dua? If not, how can those forty mornings be completed then?
  14. Assalamu alaykum, I am a born Muslim but have a question to which I cannot find a definitive answer on the other forums. In the first rakat of prayers, you read Surah Fatiha and any other surah of the Quran after it. For the 2nd surah of the 2nd rakat, however, I have heard different things. For example, I have heard that it is mandatory to recite Surah Ikhlas but I've also heard that you can recite any other surah of the Quran so long as it is shorter than the 2nd surah you recited for the 1st rakat. I am a Sunday School teacher and want to clarify this for my students as well, so I am hoping I can find the correct answer from all you intelligent people! JazakAllah Khair.
  15. Sallam, I missed salaht Alfajir this morning, with extreme guilt. I haven't missed morning prayer in a very long time, but is there anything else I can to with the making up of the salaht to make sure it gets accepted? I mean like additional salaht or duaas just to make sure it gets accepted. Also another question: I work at a department store and my shifts are usually right before Mugharib prayer, is okay, that I pray in the fitting rooms? Cleanliness wise, or should I wait to get home-which is right before mid-night. Insh'Allah all our prayers are accepted.
  16. This is a question by a member who wishes to remain anonymous. I read somewhere that from the time of Sunset until the time of Maghrib that we should not pray. This might be because other people would see us praying and think either 1) we are praying too early or 2) they would rush to pray Maghrib when it was not Maghrib time yet. Is it true that there is a prohibition of praying between Sunset and Maghrib and we should only make dua during that time? If we are in our private room and nobody can see us praying, can we pray a prayer between Sunset and Maghrib, to make up a prayer that we missed from our past?

  18. Assalamualaikum, I've been having severe back aches for the last few weeks and it's been quite difficult standing in prayer. So I have been performing sitting down. But when I need to pray on a chair how do I prostrate on a turbah? Like do I pick it up and put it on my forehead or put it on a table and lean on it??
  19. (salam) I made this for my son who's learning to pray and thought it might be helpful for brothers and sisters here. Kindly point out if you see any errors or mistakes as the text for same has collected from multiple sources. Wasalaam PS: Kindly let me know if you need jpg in specific resolution for printing.

  20. Assalamualaikum. I am a recent convert to Shia islam, alhamdulillah. When I was learning how to pray, I was watching videos and looking at images and I couldn't help notice women were wearing prayer dresses and chadors/khimars. Or is this only in muslim countries? My understanding is that women have to cover everything but their face and hands when praying but is a covering like a prayer dress compulsory? Also, I would like to purchase a prayer dress, regardless of if it's compulsory or not and I live in Birmingham, UK so does anyone know where I can buy one. If a prayer dress is not possible, a chador or khimar would do. Jazakh'Allah
  21. Salaam Alaikum WRWB I am new to this website and have been a revert for around 3 and a half months (Alhamdullilah) and have a question about obligatory prayer. The question is kind of split into two parts. 1) If I perform an obligatory prayer in the proper way without mistakes but wish to repeat the prayer because I felt I could have concentrated better, am I allowed to repeat the prayer? If this is not permissible and i repeat the prayer, is there some action that I need to take? for example, if its not a good enough reason to repeat and therefore I have sinned then it would require repentance. 2) If during the repeated prayer something happens which invalidates the prayer, then does the first prayer still count? seen as it was done properly anyway Thank you in advance and apologies if I sound ignorant. I am still making myself clear regarding the rules surrounding prayer. Jazak Allahu Khayran
  22. Aslam e elukum brothers and sisters, I thought this would be a good way to keep a check on my religious activities on a daily basis. I am regular with most of the activities on my checklist but some need work. So here goes, 1. Pray five times a day. 2. Salat ul Layl daily. 3. Recite at least one ruku of the Holy Quran with tafseer. 4. Watch one Islamic lecture daily. 5. Countless Salawats. 6. Thanking Allah(SWT) as much as I can. 7. Perform as many acts of kindness as I can. 8. Making dua for everyone I know. Please make additions to the list and let me know if I am missing anything. I would love your feedback. Let's all work together in this temporary world for our life in the permanent one. May Allah(SWT) make us all into true believers and true followers of Prophet MUHAMMAD(SAWW) and the AHL UL BAIT(AS). Ameen.
  23. salam to my brathers and sisters sometimes i am at work, so cant pray exactly after Azan. It annoys me alot to hear Azan but dont pray. so I asked myself: should i pray exactly after Azan or I have some minutes for pray to be on time. Then I shearched the books and found some good poins to know about the time of salats (prayers). And now I want to share those points with you. the first point which i understood is that every salat has two kinds of time. the time of Ejza and the time of fadilla. The time of Ejza means the time in which salat be accepted or in another word the muslem can perform his/her salst in any minutes of that time. The time of fadillah (the time of merit and prievilage) means the time that is highly recomanded to pray in that time. Salat of Zuhr (noon) and asr an intoduction: Ayatoallah sistani: 737: If a stick, a pole, or anything similar to it, which acts as an indicator (shakhis) is made to stand on a level ground, its shadow will fall westwards when the sun rises in the morning, and as the sun continues to rise the shadow cast by the indicator will reduce in size and it becomes smallest at the time of the commencement of Zuhr. based on this when the shadow is the shortest, and it begans getting londer again, it is known that Zuhr has taken place. The time of Ejza: The time for Zuhr and Asr prayers is from when the sun starts declining at midday till sunset. The time of fadillah: for Zuhr prayer it starts from the beginig of the time of Ejza untill the shadow of indicator (shakhis) becomes as long as the indicator. and the end of the fidillah for Asr pray is the time in which the shadow becomes twofold of the indicator. so it is highly recomanded to pray your Zuhr and Asr in the time of Fadillah, but its allowed to pray in the rest of the time. with recpect to what we said, to pray on the time doesnt mean exatly after Azan, but we have some times to be on time. Another point: it is better to pray as soon as possible, therefore the first parts of the time of Fdillah is better form the rest of it. I will mention the times of other salats if any of you wants that. with best regards
  24. 2 Minutes Islamic Sermon. Enjoy it :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpGG-X81QtA
  25. I'm 17 years old and live with a more up to date family and less religious one. I seem to be the only one that believes in every single aspect of islam. The problem is society all around me doesn't. I almost never listen to music except on few occasions. I listen to a lot of nadbiyat and latmiyat for ashoora. My sisters on the other hand listen to a lot of music. They aren't religious at all to be honest. One of them is old enough to be obliged to pray but doesn't except when she wants something. And when i confront them about this issue they don't seem to respond. On the contrary they make fun of me for being so closed minded. So there is a lot of music in the house, my sisters don't wear hijab and my old sister doesn't pray. Now i know its non of my business any longer but i hear the prophet said that god doesn't accept prayers coming from a household where music is played. Trust me if i lived on my own i wouldn't play music but my sisters unfortunately do a lot and I'm afraid god won't accept my prayers because of that. I was hoping to get someones opinion on this whole issue.
