  1. So the Ramadan moon was sighted in Saudi Arabia and UAE on Sunday thereby starting Ramadan on Monday. Now I am no scientist but it was scientifically impossible to see the moon on Sun in the Middle East so how did people in Saudi and UAE see it. I am sure they were not lying to it must have been a miracle and that too a miracle limited to Saudi and UAE only. It would be okay if they just came out and said they go by the birth of the moon and not on being able to sight it. But the lying.....
  2. Salam. My friend and I are debating whether Kaffarah fasting counts in Ramadan. Basically, if a person breaks an oath, and is not able to: free a slave / feed sixty poor / etc. just as Ramadan is arriving, then do his 3 consecutive fasts count? Regardless of Ramadan fasts being wajib/compulsory?
  3. As Salaamu Alaykum The Sunni sect breaks fast for Ramadaan at the wrong time which is Maghrib (Sunset) and they have no bases at all in the Holy Qur'aan to support this. Allah has clearly prescribed Al Layl (The Night) for the correct time to break our fast. One thing that I have learnt is that the Shia Muslims break their fast at Al Layl (The Night) which is the correct time. For those who are interested in examining the evidence, the facts in the Qur'aan in regards to the correct time to break fast, feel free to download the pdf documents that I wrote. You can download the document in English or Arabic.

  4. hello I'm learning about Islam, and google says that ramadan starts in june 5th and ends in july 5th, but that this date changes every year, and that is based according with the moon, ¿How can I know when it starts and when it ends? which moon phase? and how someone should fast? is it true that people can eat at night and before the sun rises? do we can eat whatever? (I know forbidden animals never should be eaten), or is it just spiritual, like not cursing, not having sexual relationships, not swearing and in a nutshell trying to not commit sins as much as possible? and, does the fast differ from sunni to shia Islam? thank you if any can provide an answer
  5. I have been making a script that calculates Ramadan timings for muslims across the world. The calculations are accurate upto 30 seconds because we are using google map api with upto 6 decimal digits but the major problem is the difference between the two believers. Can someone tell me how the prayer times of Shia brothers and sunni brothers are calculated. What is the key factor that plays a major role in the difference of timings.
  6. Can someone please give me the reason and tafseer behind this ayah: نِسَآؤُكُمۡ حَرۡثٌ لَّـكُمۡ فَاۡتُوۡا حَرۡثَكُمۡ اَنّٰى شِئۡتُمۡ Your wives are your tilth; go, then, into your tilth as you wish

  8. al-Salaamu 'Alaykum, Ramadan Mubarak! Since the holy month of Ramadan is the month of revelation, and the very first word to be revealed was "iqra!" "read!" I decided to do something worthwhile in this holy month and try to share my hundreds of Islamic books by giving short reviews of them, one Islamic book review per night of the holy month of Ramadan. So 30 Nights 30 Books! I have decided to select books at random, covering various Islamic topics, hopefully this project of mine will be of benefit. Please give me comments and suggestions for this is the very first time I'm making such videos. Night 1: The Holy Qur'an, Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation
  9. May Allah bless you all. inshAllah your fasting and prayers are accepted. http://www.imam-us.org/1436/shawwal In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Announcement Concerning: The Crescent Moon of the Month of Shawwal, 1436 
بيان هلال شهر شوال لسنة ١٤٣٦، إضغط هنا لقراءة البيان To the respected believers in North America,
 Peace be upon you. 

The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Saturday, July 18, 2015 will be the first day of the month of Shawwal, 1436, for the entire region of North America.

 This is based on no reports of verified sightings of the crescent moon at sunset on Thursday, July 16, 2015, in any region in North America. Thus, Friday is considered the last day of Ramadan.

 We ask Allah (swt) to accept our fasting and good deeds during the holy month and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (ajfs). The Crescent Committee: 
• Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi, Toronto, Canada.
 • Shaykh Fadhil al-Sahlani, New York, NY.
 • Sayyid Mahboob Mehdi Abedi, Chicago, IL.
 • Shaykh Ja'far Banglori, Miami, FL. 
• Sayyid Nabi Raza Abedi, San Francisco, CA. Important Islamic events in this month: • 1st (July 18) Eid al-Fitr • 8th (July 25) Destruction of al-Baqi’ by the government of Saudi Arabia, 1344 AH • 25th (August 11) Martyrdom of Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq, 148 AH I.M.A.M. accepts Zakat al-Fitrah and sends it to needy believers in the United States. Click here to pay it online. To read about the rules of Zakat al-Fitrah, click here. The Moon-Sighting Committee was established in 2005 by The Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America, which annually selects new members to serve on its behalf. It has offered its services to the believers in North America every month since. The current committee was appointed at the Fourteenth Conference of The Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America held in Detroit in August 2014.

  10. Assalamu'aleykom, I was reading things online and heard a lot about it, but I'm confused. It is about the rules of traveling during the month of Ramadan I'm gonna travel in the morning at 6, and come back 5 days after, also in the morning. I've heard a lot say that I can't fast during traveling.. But my question is, am I not allowed even though I want to fast during those days? And If i'm not allowed to fast during the traveling days, is it allowed to fast the days I'm in the other country?

  13. (bismillah) A few years ago I made a Jeopardy learning game for kids here. And here's an interactive version you can play online: http://jeopardylabs.com/play/shahr-ramadhan-game-1 It's super easy *yawn* but good for kids Now I've made another one in preparation for the month coming up. I tried to make it a little bit harder than the first one, but still probably way too easy for you smart folks, but you never know, give it a try... You can play it here: http://jeopardylabs.com/play/month-of-ramadhan There are 15 questions total for this one. If you don't see all the questions, you will have to scroll down. Good luck! AND if you can think of a good and hard Final Jeopardy question then let me know plzzz
  14. I'm planning a picnic for the start of Ramadan where we (Muslims friends of my community/facebook) will go to the top of a mountain and sight the moon for Ramadan. I made this suggestion on facebook and all hell just broke loose. 1. People are saying that there is no need to do such because Saudi Arabia has already said what day it is going to be on. 2. People jumped in on the above saying that we don't follow wahhabis (oh lord........). 3. People are saying that I (a woman & non scholar) am not qualified to sight the moon. 4. People jumped in on the above saying give proof, lol. 5. People are saying that you don't have to be a scholar to sight the moon, just be a Muslim man. 6. Next, the haram police swooped in and said that having a moonsighting picnic is bidah. 8. The observation tower at the top of this mountain just happens to have a 56 foot statue of a Greek idol on it. That too was cited as haram by the haram police. So what is the fiqh of moonsighting?
  15. What do you love the most about Ramadan? I always find myself way too excited when Ramadan is near, i get the best feelings ever, i feel in peace. I feel like this is the month were all Muslims start praying more, read Quran more, & All my muslim friends that listen to Music stop listening to music for the sake of Ramadan, we just stay away from bad things. We remember that we should be thankful for what we have, when we starve we remember the poor, how they're without food every day, day & night, this is the time when we start feeling their pain, & i love it, People will start being thankful with what Allah has gave them. When we wake up for suhoor everyday with our family, eat, read Quran, Make Dua, it's just the best thing. Then Futr, when we all just break our fast, that's when all the food gets all yummy & delicious haha, i feel so hungry that i think i'll eat all that food, but then i end up eating 2 spoons & i'm full already lol. It also brings all the family together, i dunno it's amazing. & if you live in a Muslim country, you're the luckiest. Because your whole country is fasting, & you'd always hear the Quran & Athan from outside & people go to Majid (mosque) & pray, best thing ever, i envy you! There's more to say, there's so much blessing about Ramadan that i love, but that's all i'm gonna say for now, hehe. :)
  16. Hello! I was wondering if somebody could please help me and guide me in the right direction with a few things. 1)Okay, so my GCSE exams are about to start soon and I have been coming into a bit of axeity latley causing me to loose sleep at nights, but I have been doing namaz as normal and I have been making prayers asking Allah for help, but sometimes after I finish my namaz I can sometimes feel that nobody is listening to my prayers, but I eventually calm myself down saying to myself that Allah will allways be listening to my prayers and my wishes will be granted if I work hard and be a good Muslim, both of which I have been doing. Does anyone know how to help? I don't like doing this as I deeply love Allah with all my might, I just hate the doubt that sometimes comes to mind. 2) As you will know Ramadan will be starting soon and as always, I am going to be really bored as at this time my exams would have finished, so I plan to buy a Chello to stop my boredom and give me something to do. Does anyone know if playing a musical instrument is Halal? Because sometimes higher education can sometimes ask if you do and I don't want to be at a disadvantage. And is listening to classical music harram too? Just wondering. 3) Okay so this was a question that I was really confused about, I was wondering if I could grow my hair to a really long length even though I am male. Would if effect my namaz or wuddu in anyway? Thank you!
  17. Peace be upon you all, I cannot suppress my excitement any longer! Who's ready for Ramadan?! I can't believe it's approaching so fast, alhamdillah :) we should all post some goals we hope to achieve this approaching holy month, that we couldn't do last Ramadan. 1) Read supplications, nahjul balagha, and the life of the holy prophet everyday 2) Finish the whole Quran and read the translations 3) fast rajab, shaban, and Ramadan Please be friendly to each other and may Ramadan be in our hearts to lift our spirits up :)

  19. Salam everyone, I am sunni Muslim and my whife is Shia Muslim. This is our first Ramadan together and since we are not in joint family system and its only me and her and we find it really strange that we are not breaking fast at same time. I hav read in this forum that it is permissible to break fast with sunnis. I do not want to force or push her and if it is not permissible I will not even discuss it with her. we find it strange that how it is permissible to marry sunni or shia but then there is no clear guideline how they spend their lives together. Thanks
  20. Salaam Aleikum ! :D InshAllah this will be my first year celebrating Ramadan - and I have made the decision to start wearing hijab as well. I converted about a year ago and have decided I am finally ready! Just wanted to ask for any tips on how to prepare for Ramadan as a newbie, also, tips/advice on wearing hijab for first time? Thank you!!!! D,
  21. Salaams, I am a follower of Ayatullah Sistani (as). My situation is as follows, I want to attend a protest in the holy month of Ramadan, the venue is 30 miles away and I pray Qasr there. If I leave after Zuhr, and return before Maghrib will my fast be accepted? If it is not accepted, is it Haraam for me to go there? Thanks in advance JazakAllah Khair
  22. salam all inshallah all is doing well .. so i was thinking and thought it would be a great idea if during ramadan we would all read the Quran together so like everyday we read a surah or two or read it differently .. i thought it would be a good idea too keep each other motivated to read all of the Quran during ramadan, inshallah all is willing to try with me and inshallah we can all help each other achieve this goal wasalam Hadith No. 03 Ramadan: The Month of Revelation of the Holy Quran Imam Redha (A.S.) has said: If one asks, "Why is it that the fasts were made obligatory exclusively in the month of Ramadan and not in the other months?" it would be said, "(this is) because the month of Ramadan is the month in which Allah, the Exalted, had revealed the Holy Quran." Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 18, pg. 190
  23. (salam) and Eid Mubarak everyone, Could anyone please shed some light on the following narrations in Man La Yahdurhu al-Faqih vol.2 pg 169-70: ." وفي رواية محمد بن سنان عن حذيفة بن منصور عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: " شهر رمضان ثلاثون يوما لا ينقص أبدا And from Muhammad ibn Sinaan's narration from Huzaifa bin Mansoor from Abi Abdullah [a] who said: "The month of Ramadan is 30 days and will not be ever fewer [that that]". ." وفي رواية حذيفة بن منصور عن معاذ بن كثير ويقال له: معاذ بن مسلم الهراء عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: " شهر رمضان ثلاثون يوما لا ينقص والله أبدا And from Huzaifa ibn Mansoor's narrations from Mu`aaz ibn Katheer also called as Mu`aaz ibn Muslim al-Hurra` from Abi Abdullah [a]: "The month of Ramadan will be 30 days and not ever fewer [than that], by Allah". ." وسأل أبوبصير أبا عبدالله عليه السلام " عن قول الله عزوجل " ولتكملوا العدة " قال: ثلاثين يوما Inquired Abu Baseer from Abu Abdullah [a] about the word of Allah 'and you complete the number' so he replied: "30 days". ." وروي عن ياسر الخادم قال: قلت للرضا عليه السلام: " هل يكون شهر رمضان تسعة وعشرين يوما؟ فقال: إن شهر رمضان لا ينقص من ثلاثين يوما أبدا Narrated from Yasir al-Khadim who said that I said to [imam] al-Ridha [a], "Is the month of Ramadan of 29 days?", and he said, 'The month of Ramadan will not ever be fewer than 30 days'. قال مصنف هذا الكتاب رضي الله عنه: من خالف هذه الاخبار وذهب إلى الاخبار الموافقة للعامة في ضدها اتقي كما يتقي العامة ولا يكلم إلا بالتقية كائنا من كان إلا أن يكون مسترشدا فيرشد ويبين له فإن البدعة إنما تماث وتبطل بترك ذكرها ولا قوة إلا بالله. (the above is a note by Shaykh Sadooq [rh] which I would better have someone else translate as I am a bit confused about what it is saying at the end about doing Taqiyyah, but the Shaykh seems to agree with the view than Shahr Ramadan can not be less than 30 days) What is the general opinion of the rest of the 'ulema on this? I apologize in advance for any errors in translation. I'm not exceptionally good at it. (salam)
