  1. Assalaamu Alaikum. How to increase the Thawab / Hasnat / rewards of Salah , Saom, Charity , Ablution and othet Ibadats ?
  2. Salam alejkum, A question regarding salah. Basically when you start your salah and you begin with your takbir (Allahu Akbar) is there anything else you can say before you begin Surah Fatiha? Such as for example 'A'udhu billahi minash shaitanir rajim'? Would this void your prayer? JazakAllah.
  3. Salaams and Ramadan Mubarak to everyone, Ive been talking to a brother who recently became a shia muslim MashaAllah and has been attending the Manchester Islamic Center. He only joined the deen a week or so ago and has been asking people there to teach him salah but no one has so far and hes only 16. Can someone who lives in Manchester help him please? the reward for this is so great especially during this month. I live to far away and im female and so i dont know all the rules for men in salah. If anyone can help in that area please message me, Wasalaam

  5. Salam alejkum, Firstly I apologise for flooding the topic with questions. I have a few questions regarding congregational salah for fajr, dhur, asr, maghrib, isha and jummah. What are the rules the Shia way? 1. Do you recite surah al-fatiha and second surah behind the imam when he does or do you just listen? Does this differ between each raka'a? 2. Do you recite while going into ruku, sujoud and the salaams as well? jazakAllah.
  6. Salam alejkum, From what I have read, and heard - Fajr - 2 rak'a - All loud Dhur - 4 rak'a - All quiet Asr - 4 rak'a - All quiet Mahgrib - 3 rak'a - First 2 loud, last 1 quiet OR All loud? Isha - 4 rak'a - First 2 loud, last 2 quiet OR All loud? Now can somebody please clarify this? As I have seen two opinions on this while trying to research further there seem to be differences between the Mahgrib & Isha. Also does the quietness or loudness also apply to when in sujoud, ruku and salaams or does it not matter? jazakAllah.
  7. I am wondering what my niyya has to be for performing the optional daily prayers found in duas.org. There is a different optional prayer to be prayed per day, and their benefits are really amazing. Some examples are: Having a city in paradise, angles coming down to fulfill our hajaats, removing darkness from our graves till Qiyamat. There was a lecture where Sayed Mahdi Modarresi gave an excellent analogy of how good it is to pray optional prayers, which got me interested :) My questions are: Q1) What will my niyya be? Q2) Will my niyya be the same in all of them or will they change depending on the category of benefits of the optional prayer eg: if a certain prayer of the day is about fulfilling hajaats, will it be of a different niyya? Q3) Can they be considered as a nafl prayer? Q4) What time can they be prayed? Anytime from Fajr to Isha? I would really appreciate any help :)
  8. (bismillah) (salam) SD, let's read the book and then discuss here. You can formulate it into a written lecture if you like, the purpose is so that we all gain a proper understanding of salah and how to obtain 'satisfaction' through the act of prayer itself. Considering your constant prayer issues I think it is the most relevant book for you to read currently, so that you understand that prayer isn't just a set of surah's and rules within salah aren't to make your prayers harder for you. It also addresses the stages of our preparation and focus, so we do not get caught up in istidraj (other than Haqq), such as your 'doubts'. It's all applicable. It is all about niyyah and how you approach prayer. So what I propose is: ONE CHAPTER AT A TIME within any given time, but considering you have a lot of free time, a maximum of 2 weeks. AFTER THE CHAPTER summarise your findings and then we will discuss upon our understanding of the content (content isn't easy). You up for it? (don't say yes if you aren't, because this won't be easy, it'l require reading between the lines and applying to yourself as well as the tawfiq to stay with it). P.S - This is for everyone to discuss as the book is immense and I consider it beneficial for all of us. I know Aficio is up for discussion. (wasalam) Book - http://www.al-islam.org/adab/
  9. www.shiatranslation.org Every Worship has an Esoteric and Exoteric Aspect Every [act of] worship has an esoteric and spiritual aspect to it. Hajj, for example, is not merely those actions that the pilgrims perform. Similarly, the esoteric dimension of ṣalāt is not merely the common movements [of ṣalāt]. Additionaly, the narrations of the Prophet (pbuh) and Ahlul-Bayt (pbut) clearly indicate this reality. The following narration probably sheds some light onto this point: Imam Ali (pbuh) says, "If the person performing ṣalāt knows what descends upon him from the Glory of God, he would be dismayed to lift his head up from prostration." Imam al-Sadiq (pbuh) said, "When a person stands up for ṣalāt, mercy descends upon him from the highest heavens to earth, and the angels surround him, whereby one [of the angels] calls out, "If this person [praying] knows what [bounties] are in ṣalāt he would never abandon it." Meaning that he would not leave the ṣalāt if he was to realize the esoteric reality of ṣalāt along with the meanings that the ṣalāt embodies within the presence of God, the Glorified and Exalted. Two Forces Exist in Every Human The person must live a state of anticipation for ṣalāt, for the pious believer who wants to reach the esoteric reality of ṣalāt must live this premonition before the time [of prayer] enters, yearningly anticipating the ṣalāt. The major events in life, and the lofty meanings initiate [primarily] by instilment and then transform into reality. The person must not become fatigued of constant instilment, for wayfaring towards God, the Exalted, is a diametric movement in the nature of the human due to the presence of two factors [in the human]: firstly, a driving force; and secondly, a preventing force. We must realize that there is a driving force which drives the wayfarer towards an opposite direction from what he desires [spiritually], meaning that it compels him to: lean towards temporal desires, lax towards the temporal realm, give precedence to the temporal over the ethereal, give precedence to the desire over the intellect, and give precedence to the immediate interest over the future interest. I would like to add that [the act of] worship is [a form of] dealing and interaction with the invisible world, and if the invisible world remains purely invisible, then it is no longer a driving force for the human. He who believes in God and the origin and return but does not live true realization by presence in his heart, would, naturally, not journey towards God, the Exalted, in an active manner and thus will attempt to go against the current. The swimmer who wants to swim against the current would initially require struggle, hardship and combat until he becomes accustomed to swimming with the wave thus overcoming the obstacles. Preliminary self preparedness is Necessary Hence, entering the ocean of ṣalāt requires preliminary self preparedness. Prior to the time [of prayer] entering, it would be beneficial for the person to create a barrier between himself and ṣalāt, i.e. creating a transitional area as a barrier between the two dimensions: Thus it is neither ṣalāt, nor is it interaction with others. For this reason, it is seen that the noble Qur'an emphasizes on the [following] reality: Performing tasbih prior to sunrise and sunset. The person must sit in the prayer area before the sun sets.. in an area where he prepares himself to be in the presence of God, the Exalted, while performing some tasbihat, tahlilat, and other recommended acts whereby he gradually dissuades from interaction with the elements of this world. Therefore, the ṣalāt of the believer begins a while before the [actual] time, for the righteous [people] and saints prepare themselves to meet the Lord an hour or so before, whereas the [ṣalāt] time surprises the laymen, and they even probably (deep inside) wish that the time does not enter, so that [the ṣalāt] doesn't spoil their [worldly] leisure! Now, if it was necessary to pray in the house - not in a house of God, the Exalted - then he must prepare an empty location for worshipping in his house to assert his anticipation and lenience to meet his Master. continuation of part I will be coming soon ... http://shiatranslati...temid=4〈=en
