  1. Salam everyone. Please read this, any kind words will help, I promise you. I know it’s very long but there is soo much emotions going through my head at the moment 4 years ago, I found someone perfect for marriage. We told our parents 1 month after. I’m Iraqi & he is Lebanese. We knew it would be an issue but we are both Shia and we just knew this is the right choice for each other. when I told my dad, I was crying. I told him he’s a great man & a great family. He has so much deen in him, has a great character and very family oriented. My dads problem was only the national
  2. Salam, A jurisdiction would set a law Forcing women to wear hijab. Another jurisdiction would set a law Banning hijab in schools/universities/workplace etc Aren't they both extremes? Aren't they both wrong? As far as the Qur'an teaches us, there cannot be compulsion or forcing in Deen, ﷽ لا إِكراهَ فِي الدّينِ La Ikrah Fil Deen There is no Compulsion in Religion. (2-256) Isn't forcing women to wear hijab counter intuitive? Wouldn't such a law push people away people from the faith simply because they're being forced to adhere to it?
  3. Personally I think there are so many problems with being a believer. When you say “I believe” you are fundamentally saying, “I am unwilling to admit that I do not know”. The seeker is willing to admit he doesn’t know! The believer is unwilling to make this admission. He draws conclusions about what is not yet within his experience. A believer may make assumptions about the day of the judgement! Further, the moment you believe something, you are in conflict with the opposing belief. You can postpone it with moderate talk. But conflict is inevitable. Isn't it that Abu Darda reported:
  4. Most followers of religion have inherited their faith from their parents. Faith is unfortunately more like a culture one grew up in rather than Solid Aqeeda. The danger in inherited faith is that it's foundations are so weak, the slightest breeze can crumble it all together. How many can say that they have researched into their faith vs other faiths and reached conclusions based on research and findings?
  5. I wish to share my thoughts on the concept of Unity. To do that, I have a perspective which is a cumulation of all the experiences of my life put together. My perspective may have a bias since it is a combination of the realities that I have lived and observed at different points in time. In order to explain my thoughts, I am compelled to make the best use of my language skills. I believe the English Language is one of the most, if not THE most spoken languages in contemporary times. I start off by introducing myself to the reader. I like to think of myself as a being that is subject to c
  6. Salam alakum, Alhamdilalah I am a practicing Muslima with faith in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I experience real moments of connection with Allah on a day to day basis and during ibadah and understand from a rational/ logical perspective that He knows what's best for me with regards to putting me through hardship, making me wait to meet a partner and reach my career goals etc etc. However, I feel like my heart does not fully believe this because why am I anxious about the future, uncertain and unsatisfied with my current situation? I'd like to know if you struggle with this with
  7. ***** Al-’Abbas in Arabic Referring to the linguistic meaning of the Arabic al-’Abbas, Ibn-Manzhour5 in his al-Ayn, writes down: Al-’Abbas - the lion that other lions fear and escape6 https://www.al-islam.org/al-abbas-badr-shahin/birth-and-early-life#al-’abbas-arabic Epithets Epithet is a word or phrase that expresses a quality or attribute which is considered to be a characteristic of the person or thing mentioned.1 Epithets then reflect one’s characteristics, whether good or bad. To al-’Abbas a number of lofty epithets expressing his kind mentality and high
  8. Salam and hello everyone, I apologize from the get go if this sounds like a Tumblr post but I genuinely want to hear from other Shiachat lurkers regarding the titular question. Over the past few years I've had the opportunity to meet people from a multitude of backgrounds and diverse schools of thought and I was shocked by how fragile the structural integrity of my beliefs was. Everything that I've ever known was challenged, and I started to question the very nature of my existence. Now of course one could blame it on my upbringing, maybe I didn't attend enough lectures or d
  9. Why every time I that I mention Jesus and my love for him, the Muslim person I am speaking with goes into this script, (I feel like it is a script because diverse people have used the same words verbatim), of how they love Jesus too. They say, "One cannot be Muslim unless he believes in Jesus, I love Jesus, I love Jesus more than you" Honestly, this shows a great misunderstanding in the Muslim's person understanding. Do Muslim people realize that Christians do not love Jesus like as a prophet, we do not love him a religious duty. We surely do not love him in the context of a person from
  10. Salaam Alaykum all, may this message find you well. I am a Shia female that belongs to a very respectful family alhamdullilah. However during my journey at University I came across a Sunni male. We want to get married. We are aware of the challenges this may pose and have in fact spoken about it before because we do not want any problems to arise after marriage especially with our kids. It will take a lot of compromises though but most aspects of Shiaism are not a problem for him. As you have figured from the title, I have already approached my parents and all I have received is
  11. 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 a
  12. Is it bad or disrespectful or haram to get Allahs name tattooed,I wanna get bismallah,or bismallah el rehman el rahim,in Arabic,I dunno if I spelt it right.its a prayer correct,I feel it would b a nice tattoo because I wanna proudly express my faith,can someone explain the content in which that prayer is used,to my knowledge I say it when scared before I eat,if I'm amazed at somthing beautiful like nature,before I do anything I'm nervous about.correct or no?in the name of god saying it comforts me so I want it written on me to always remember to b faithful n do good.good or bad idea?
  13. @Abdulaziz mirza dear readers, i just want to discuss something important, i have been facing and challenging for quiet a while, and maybe a lot of people are secretly fighting this... I once had very strong faith in Allah and was very pious and religious, i had goals and still do want to be a sheikh and i would make Allah's name beautiful, i would make people know what's haram and halal, i offer prayers at the time and i always go to the masjid and fast not obligatory fasting and i pray more than i should and do a lot of good things ,But everyone has a flaw and a failure and mine was ma
  14. If anyone wants to donate its a great cause. 2nd Chance Books for Prisoners Program "Some of the many benefits of this program are changing prisoners bad habits into good ones; achieving social reform by teaching the morals and ethics of the Holy Prophet and his Holy Household (pbut), molding leaders; producing better citizens who will be active in helping their communities upon their release, promoting awareness of the true teachings of Islam as taught by Prophet Muhammad (s) and his Holy Household (as) and to remove misinformation and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims f
  15. Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu I used to follow Sistani, then Sadiq Shirazi. My question is, who is the strictest majra? Ya Ali Madad Haqq
  16. I’m writing this while I'm crying. I'm so tired.. I have always been this hopeful person, that always saw the good things in people, in situations, in everything, all that because of my faith. I believed that I had a strong faith, making always due, prays, doing my thing. Lately I’m just tired of everthing and everyone. I feel like im lost and doesn’t know what to do. Everything is just, blank.. The problems that I prayed for before (last years and the years before) aren’t gone. Things are just the same and even worse. I’m afraid of myself.. Afraid of losing my faith. Afraid of losing hop
  17. Salaamu alaykum everyone, This is the start of a series in which I am trying to distill the most important spiritual truths which I have realized in studying and participating in this deen. It is extremely relevant to Shiachatters especially as unfortunately many in this community have taken the deen to be a series of propositions which one assents to with the mind instead of a series of realities that have been integrated into the soul through the heart. What I have shared here has really changed my life. http://themuslimtheist.com/the-aql-is-not-reason-its-consciousness/
  18. Salamu 3laykum, I am interested in finding the top, best Shia books about anything but I mainly want books about Imam Al-Mahdi ( AATFS), Allah SWT, how women should be in Islam, the roles of a believer, and many more. Any help would be appreciated. I want to explore the roles and responsibilities that Allah is ordered for us to follow and know.
  19. Hi. I'm going through a period of skepticism and would like to ask any ex-Muslims on here why they chose to leave Islam. What specifics were the final straw that broke the camel's back? In particular, since this is a Shia forum, I'd be interested in how your view of the following changed once you'd left Islam compared to when you were a Muslim: 1. The sacrifice of Imam Hussain at Karbala along with 72 of his followers. 2. The infallibility of the Prophet and His Miracles and 3. how do you interpret the lives of Sufi saints such as Rumi, Hallaj and Bulleh Shah after leaving Islam? These
  20. (salam) 1. This is incident of Khawaja Naseer ud Din Tusi and is famous one. Once he went to a village and as it was late night, he asked one of the villager to give him space to spend night there. The villager asked him to sleep in the room. Khawaja Naseer ud Din told him that it is very hot inside, it is better to sleep outside. The villager said "No, it will rain here tonight". Khawaja Naseer Ud Din was an astrologist therefore, he said I am not seeing any signs of rain therefore, I shall sleep outside. Khawaja Naseer ud Din slept out side but it rained at night. Khawaja Naseer Ud Din was
  21. Hello! I'm new posting and the reason why I have become part of this community is because there are some questions in life that I have that I cannot ask others in my family (either because they'll call me crazy or not understand me, not because of any shameful reasons). Anyway, the point of my post is to ask what your thoughts on Evolution are. Please, if you are not informed on what evolution really means then try to refrain from merely giving negative comments. In my opinion, the evidence on evolution is overwhelming, to the extent that if it is not real then it must be to some extent true.
  22. Salam brothers and sisters Please can someone who speaks farsi help me. I needed to know the correct English to Farsi translations and also transliterations. What is the correct actual farsi word for Strength? Not as in physical strength, but inner strength or strength in Faith? Also what is the correct farsi word for Faith as in spiritual faith? Is it bavar or eteghad? What is difference between the two words? An explanation for each would be very helpful and also the correct word in Farsi with the correct text. Also if there is more than one word for the same meaning please list them. Thank
  23. ASA everyone. Now, most muslims will generally say that humans have free will but that Allah(swt) knows what will happen before it will happen and that he can alter things as he so pleases. However, when reading the Quran it is not that simple. It seems to me that two points are made simultaneously, the first being that humans control whether or not they will accept faith and guidance and the other being that it is not up to an individual but all up to Allah(swt). If it is up to Allah(swt), then doesn't it seem unfair that he will misguide some people and guide others? This is really bothering
