  1. I am debating a guy who says he is Jewish, but believes in the trinity. Nonetheless let’s consider him Christian, his proposed argument is this: Jesus accepted worship where angels refused it. Jesus rebuked disciples for thinking of him as equal to Moses. Jesus also said that he had authority to forgive sins, even when only God can. Jesus said, "Before Abraham was, YHWH (I Am)." Pharisees tried to stone him several times for claiming to be God, and Jesus never contradicted them. 'But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God' (1 Corinthians 2:9-11). So we see that God's Spirit searches his mind. And God can also send his spirit to others. God's spirit can also be grieved, and he has a will. "For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills" (1 Corinthians 12:8-11). Could you brothers/sisters kindly help me in :3 @SoRoUsH @313 Seeker @Son of Placid What would be an adequate response to this.
  2. On Reddit, I’ve come across a self-proclaimed “ex-Muslim,” who even happens to be an Iraqi Shia residing in the USA. Most of his claims are based on misinterpretations of the Quran, and I have duly refuted them. But he seems to know nothing about Shiism other than “some guy named Ali wanted to be leader.” (Astaghfirallah, his words not mine) Meaning that his “reasons” for leaving Islam had nothing to do with the Jaafari school of thought and had to do with Islam in general. I’ve told him that there is a tremendous difference between Shiism and Sunnism, but how can I bring him back to the deen without overwhelming him? I’ve shown him some of the scientific miracles in the Quran, but he merely shrugs them off. Any advice?
  3. My English and Arabic are comparatively equal, however, I oftentimes find myself within a conundrum. For example there are many works Islamic or otherwise which are accessible in both languages, and I don’t know which to choose the Arabic version or the English version. Should I read the text as it was originally written? (This seems self-explanatory unless someone would like to kindly add on) The main issue I am having is a book written in a different language such as Greek and then translated to both languages, for example The Republic. Which language should I choose to read when it comes to translated works? I am not in favor of reading the same book in both languages as it is a bit time consuming and I seek the gist of things, unless it’s a major work such as Tafsir Al-Mizan, would it be a good idea to interchangeably read for example a book in Arabic the next in English? I would highly appreciate any advice that I can receive and the most viable approach in your respective opinions. Also when it comes to Islamic works even if they are written in Farsi should I always choose the Arabic translation over the English? Such as the works of Ali Shariati, Martyr Muttahari, etc.
  4. Salam, I would appreciate it if you brothers/sisters can take the time to read what I have written and give me your ideas on whether it is sound or mere jargon. My attempt was to describe myself following a path which was not easy, but I was willing to undertake no matter the odds in order to achieve my goals, unfortunately I was sidetracked by an occurrence which was not well considered, in which led to the shattering of the process and plan I had in reaching said goal. ————————————————————— Could one articulate a blueprint to life’s uncertainty, to bring forth a module in the form of a timely script, one which enumerates all fundamentals; pondering over its practicality there lay a feeble attempt driven by aspirations to pursue such an endeavor. Transforming formulated thoughts into tangible strings to the similitude of yarn which could be woven dexterously in a fashion which resembles a deliberate sequence, one that leads to intended patterns. However, lack of discipline and untimely decisions prove to be adequate impediments to such an endeavor that necessitates forbearance. Undeniably, miscalculations lead to strands, unwanted strands which alter a meticulous process. An attempt to address the unwanted extremities would not only stagnate the continuous process, but also divert one’s attention, due to an attempt to liberate the sequence from a deviating retreat. Evidently, the ill considered approach to such a process carries its repercussions, to an extent where the result of such a grand endeavor would begin to lose its touch profoundly, wherein a little strand in a grand means becomes the entire agency. The yarn of thought which was knitted attentively, passionately, and deliberately would therein be reduced to nothing but overlapping strands of meaningless string. All the effort put reverted to the point of origin, scattered thoughts, like the yarn on quivering hands. Perplexion reinstated due to ill miscalculation. @313 Seeker @hasanhh
  5. Was interested in writing poems as a hobby and was wondering if anyone can help in critiquing my first poem and provide me with valuable insight on how I can improve it and also take note for future endeavors. Faces grow old and decay; Bodies become feeble and wither away; Hope built on the temporal being dissipates as the pendulum swings everyday; A spark in the heart ignites the soul; A volcano erupts; The pupils become dilated from the fire within; Molten lava overflows; The body becomes a furnace and shapes a bowl; An empty vessel hoping to gain respite; Receives poison instead of light.
  6. Salam Alaikum to all my Shia Brothers and Sisters! My life is devastating due to one problem (Although I’m responsible for it). I recently committed a major sin (Zina) and somehow got Herpes (Genital). I know what I did is completely wrong. But I have repented, repented every day after this sin and I’m continuing to ask Allah to forgive me (Ba haqqe Ahlul Bayt as). Our community has ignored this. Not only our community. Even others. Herpes is a condition which can’t be cured. But it doesn’t affect life span, neither it has any complicated effects on human body except that it causes frequent sores on genitals.. almost 4-5 times a year which take 10-15 days to heal. These are called outbreaks. Some people get less outbreaks per year. Every time I get outbreak, I get depressed and many a times plan to give up on life. Although I’m taking medicine for it to manage. I’m depressed!! I’m 100% sure, I’m not the only Shia with herpes. Many others are struggling too. But Alhumdulillah, I repented, performing all my Wajib duties and I am completely away from sins and I don’t have any other health condition. I see one thing: our community ignores these matters and judge people easily. I know there can a mistake but that doesn’t mean one should be treated like that even after repentance and living a religiously pious life. Having herpes outbreaks is very depressing. Although many people with herpes don’t get frequent outbreaks (hardly 1 or 2 per year). I know I’m not the only Shia with this condition, a lot many might have and are struggling deep inside. But now, I need to get married. I’m looking for someone with herpes (women) to get married to. I don’t want to lie and get married. Please help me. And please pray that the science finds it’s cure very soon. Please pray for my health. Please remember me in your prayers. And suggest some ideas for my problems. Thanks
  7. An excellent article depicting the scientific genius of our sixth Imam wherein it shows the many scientific, social, and philosophical contributions that he ((عليه السلام)) had proposed centuries before their discovery or establishment within the realm of science and academia. Topics that pertain to the expansion and contraption of the universe, the theory of light and rays, the hydrogen atom, the elements on Earth, and many more scientific advances introduced and explained by the Holy Imam, which truly leave someone dumbfounded and in awe. however, as much as one wishes to believe every word that is contained within the book or article, there is a heightened lack of credibility when it comes to references and evidences backing the profound claims made within the article. Here is the article: https://www.al-Islam.org/articles/Imam-jafar-al-sadiqs-contribution-sciences-hasnain-mohamedali I highly recommend reading it as it won’t take more then twenty minutes of your time and is a very valuable piece of work, unfortunately lacking references, footnotes, or anything that can add credibility to what is being said objectively. as much as I and am sure everyone else adores our Imam and knows such knowledge and advancements are not far from his eminence for he indeed as a beacon of knowledge and an illuminating light; there nonetheless necessitates a need for unquestionable and undeniable proof that substantiates what the article is saying. It would be immensely appreciated if any of the brothers/sisters can provide a reference or any form of tangible evidence that can substantiate the articles profound claims. Here I will provide a critique by an individual who has read the Book completely and raised his objections from a western and non biased standpoint so to speak, so as to perhaps aid into taking into consideration the concern by readers who may be intrigued by the work, but like many require concise and adequate sources, references, and evidence. ————————————————————— The introduction to this book states on page 5 that it's a translation of a Persian work, which is in its turn supposedly a translation of part of a French "thesis" published by a "Research Committee of Strasbourg, France" (pages 5 and 17). Frustratingly, the book contains no proper bibliographical references, either to the Persian work translated, or to the original French work which is supposedly its ultimate source, and this has made it difficult to trace the identity of the latter.On page 5 of the book, Ali Mirza, the English translator, gives "Maghze Mutafakkir Jehan Shia" as a transliteration of the Persian title into the Latin alphabet, and on page 20, he gives "Zabih Ullah Mansuri" as the transliteration of the name of the person who supposedly translated the work from French to Persian. The actual title of the work in Persian is (مغز متفکر جهان شیعه امام جعفر صادق (ع ("Maghze Mutafakkir Jehan Shia Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (?)" — the question mark representing a glottal stop, ع ), and its author's name, ذبیح‌الله منصوری , is commonly transliterated into English as Zabiholla Mansuri. A fairly literal translation of the title would be "Mastermind of the Shia world Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم))". One edition of the book has been cited in English as "Zabiholla Mansouri, The Great Thinker of the Shiite World, Imam JafarSadegh, Islamic Studies of Strasburg, JavidanPublicationOrganization, 1982." Mansuri's biography at eminentpersians.net describes him as "easily the most prolific and arguably the most widely read journalist and writer of modern Iran".Pages 17 to 20 of this book contain a translation of Mansuri's preface. On pages 19 and 20 we find a list of 21 names of some of the members of the "Research Committee" supposedly responsible for producing the French "thesis" from which the text purports to be ultimately derived. This list turns out to be a badly garbled and incomplete copy of the list of participants in the second Colloque d'islamologie de Centre de Recherce d'Histoire des Religions de Strasbourg. Thus, the work misleadingly referred to as a "thesis" could hardly be anything other than the proceedings of this Colloque de Strasbourg.Practically nothing, however, in this book, beyond a few basic biographical details, can be found in the French work which is its supposed source. In fact, the book is full of ludicrously silly historical claims which are nowhere to be found in the French work, and which flatly contradict well-known facts widely documented in both primary and respected secondary sources. To give just one example, I reproduce here one of the silliest such claims, from Chapter 13, "Rotation of the Earth on its axis" (page 87):"It was so difficult to comprehend and believe that the Earth rotates on its axis that the eminent French mathematician, Poincare, who died in the year 1912, made fun of this theory. He clearly stated he did not believe the Earth rotates on its own axis."On the contrary, in his popular work, translated into English as "Science and Hypothesis", Poincare argued that even if the sky had been permanently obscured by a blanket of clouds, scientists would still have eventually come to realise that it must be turning on its axis.In Mansuri's biography at eminentpersians.net we find a fairly strong clue to the true source of the misinformation contained in this book:"Maybe the strangest twist in his strange career is the fact that he was known to have published books as translations that were actually his own creations. Their alleged authors were, like the narratives themselves, the figments of his rich imagination. There is also no doubt that on numerous occasions he took a short article and turned it into a book of several hundred pages."This book would appear to be one of those that were "figments" of Mansuri's "rich imagination".I don't believe the English translator of Mansuri's book, Kaukab Ali Mirza, can be reasonably accused of complicity in Mansuri's deception. In his unintentionally amusing and ironic introduction he takes the learned scholars of the "Research Committee" to task for supposed "wild speculations and guesswork" and even "misrepresenting historical facts", not realising, of course, that these were all inventions of Mansuri himself, and the scholars participating in the second Colloque d'Islamologie had nothing whatever to do with them. His original response can be found on: https://www.amazon.com/Jafar-Muhammad-Al-Sadiq-Muslim-Scientist/dp/0969949014/
  8. I have a great problem with procrastination its making me very lazy and putting me down heavily; I aspire to do so many things, read all the books on my shelf, go to the gym consistently, study assiduously, write, meditate, I can just go on and on. I could really use some advice that can help me beat this issue.
  9. I plan on posting more often within social media adding my own thoughts and ideas, I wrote this today but I feel a bit hesitant in posting it, I was wondering if you brothers/sisters think it’s fine posting or I’ll just end up embarrassing myself @Mahdavist @Hameedeh @Gaius I. Caesar @AbdulKarim313_Austin/Nola @Haji 2003 @hasanhh @Ibn al-Hussain @Ibn Al-Shahid @Ibn Al-Ja'abi @Moalfas @Abu Nur @Muhammed Ali @notme@ali_fatheroforphans @King @The Green Knight @Ibn Al-Ja'abi @AkhiraisReal As I loathe in my distraught sea of perplexities, I find myself disheartened by the limited nature of my worldly being, lamenting an unfortunate reality that hinders my souls proclivity. Painstaken not by the love of this world of deceit and debauchery, but rather carrying an inexplicable feeling of angst, sorrow, and resentment for my bodies inability to conform with the aspirations of this troubled soul. A soul that yearns to immerse itself deep into the hearts and minds of all those who occupy its similar realm of feasibility; be it through the innumerable amounts of literature lettered by the greats, the scientific advances of the contemporaries, and the spiritual enlightenment of the ascetics. Furthermore digressing into the deviancy of the wicked, the perversion of the insatiable, and the ostentatiousness of the malevolent. in a way seeking to trace every fragment of light and darkness within each unique and distinctive being; in a means to extrapolate and perceive the areas of contingency that lie between good and evil. To rummage within every soul in search of the mysterious source of inspiration that brings forth unaudited thoughts from the subconscious to the conscious, cultivating one’s evil inclinations, or pure nature. dissecting all seven octillion atoms that occupy the makeup of man, meticulously examining the vast amount of distinct and seclusive implications that construct and establish one’s own unique worldview. conjuring a reliable blueprint that contains an axiomatic code unique and particular to every individual in compatibility with every instance of consciousness experienced. By means of gaining insight towards the astronomic macrocosm by amalgamation of the minuscule microcosms.
  10. Isalam, my name is Ali and I’m a 15 year old boy. I live in America but I grew up in Lebanon. Recently I wrote another discussion about my OCD and I got help and I’m very great full but now I have another burden and I would greatly appreciate if someone can help. So basically I live in America and you know how America it’s full of non-believers. In my school the women are not dressed probably and I don’t want to look at them because it’s haram, so I end up looking down All the time which causes me neck problems. Now I don’t if this me being over the top but if it is then it’s because of my OCD. And when I try to look up I see the women from the corner of my eye and I think I’m a kafir again and I start to ask Allah( The Greatest ) for forgiveness. Can you please help me because this is a real issue. And when I’m at home it’s the same thing. If I look at my sister I start getting these or my mom. So I end getting in these weird postures which hurt my body. I get in these weird postures to try to block my vision. Someone told me to stay steadfast but I don’t know what that means. Also I would greatly appreciate if someone could tell me if it’s haram to look at a church. Like I said before I live in America and my school has a church next to it. I sometimes find my self looking in its direction and thinking about which then instantly I think I’m a kafir and I ask Allah for forgiveness. If someone can please help please please and thank I you.
  11. Asalam Alaukm My name is Ali and I’m a 15 year old boy. I try my hardest to be a good Muslim and worship Allah as much as I can. I just recently started to be a full time Muslim ( what I mean by that is that I used to do haram things and think badly about Allah) astguforolah. Recently I have been educating my self about Islam and have started to know more about it which increases my love for it. However I have OCD and I learned that OCD comes from the Waswas and that the waswas tells you well whispers to you and makes you do stuff that are haram however I know you are supposed to ignore and seek refuge in Allah. But my main point of why I’m writing this is that I keep getting these thoughts and they are killing me. There bad stuff about Allah, I don’t know if I can talk about them, I don’t know if it’s haram to describe them. However these thoughts come and keep coming the more I resist them. Ever-time they come I ask Allah for forgiveness but even sometimes I don’t feel as if Allah excepted them because of my OCD I constantly keep repeating them and it’s made my life a burden and filled with frustration. And on top of that they make me not to be able to focus in school and I start acting wierd in school like blocking my vision from seeing other women because when I look at a women I start getting bad thoughts or I feel as if I’m a Kafir because my school is right next to a church because I live in America. Ever-time I feel like I’m thinking of the church looking at or just point at it I feel as if I’m a kafir and ask Allah for forgiveness which again because of my OCD is a challenge. I don’t know the difference between what is haram and what is not and when I thinks something that I did is not haram I get these thoughts in the back of my head telling me I’m a kafir and if I don’t ask Allah for forgiveness I am doomed. Also I’m sorry for saying this but I have been beginning to not enjoy salat anymore. Please please help me and I thank you in advance. Salam Alaykum

  13. Salam. I am in a desperate need from Imam Mehdi (عليه السلام). I have lost it but I believe a miracle can only save me. Please guide me if I am not wrong and miracle can happen if I seek help from Imam e Mehdi. I cried everynight begging for help from Bibi Fatimah (عليه السلام) and Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) and Imam Mehdi (عليه السلام). I have prayed salat ul layl and namaz e Imam e Zamana (عليه السلام). But I got no help instead it got worst and irreversible. I have done everything like hard work, dua but I didn't got any sort of help. I have lost it all but tell me if still I be hopeful can Imam do a miracle for me? What do I do for that miracle to happen.

  16. I have long been at a point with my AvPD (avoidant personality disorder) that I have not attended Jumah for months on end. I avoid praying in mosques at all costs unless I know I will literally miss the previous prayer time. For anyone that suffers from social anxiety, or just anxiety in general, how do you bring yourself to go to mosque? How do you manage to go out and not feel like a thousand eyes are burning into your skin? I can't even see myself going to Eid prayer. Any help would be appreciated.

I have tried looking at numerous sources etc but can’t find a Surah Ayn.... Can Ayn mean something else? What is the significance of 30? Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you
  19. First of all, my dad is what in our society (im from islamabad, pakistan) we'd call "religious". He prays five times a day, fasts, gives zakat, knows widely about the religion, and makes sure we know all of that. The part where he strays is that he believes my mom likes to show herself off, and likes the attention of other men. She can't do something as simple as taking a shower and going to work (teaching grade 1 students) the next day, without my dad thinking she's trying impress someone My mom has sacrificed her life for us, compromised for us (im the eldest daughter (17) , and i have three younger brothers (12,9,8)), because four years after the marriage he started showing his true colours. Btw, this was an arranged marriage, so none of that "maybe he feels like she'll love someone else". He's just an insecure man, with anger issues, who has never blamed himself for anything or openly apologised for the big arguments HE causes (not in the time ive been alive and been able to understand), thinks he knows best and there is no one better than him, doesn't have ANY real friends, and the one he does have, he constantlysays [Edited Out] about him to my mom, and then goes and places his world to the feet of this friend (btw this friend isnt alll that amazing either, but least he isnt a [Edited Out] bag like my dad( believe me i know)). when i was younger he used to physically abuse and hurt my mom, and he used to hit me too. he even went to saying that I also have a boyfriend when all i did was go upstairs to get a book (apparently there was some guy at the balcony opposite to our house, and i was " trying to communicate with him". i didnt take this lightly and raised voice and finger and started hitting me and dragged me down the stairs, and just like my nine year old self, i wanted to die and just kept repeating ' should have jusy killed me you ass' (this was two years ago). we had video camerasn around the house so mom opened them up, and showed i had done no such thing. he didnt apologise, he didnt even do anything to show remorse, instead justified everything from thefact that a raised my voise and held my finger up. a year ago, i was upset with him for another reason, and i told my mom. i told her to leave it that it was whatever, ill get over it. but she bought it up, and we got into an argument, and i do admit i shouldnt have misbehaved again (only verbally like raising my voice or rolling my eyes) but he got so aggressive and tried to slap me so i stopped him and threw his hand away,,, he went to the kitchen and got a knife , and all i could think agout was my mom cause she was trying to stop him and he kept saying "THIS IS WHY YOU SEE FATHERS KILLING THEIR DAUGHTERs ON THE NEWS" and "YOUVE TAAUGHT THEM NOTNHING YOUNSELFISH, USELESS, (swear word, more swear words, swearing at her family)". a couple a days ago, hes started fighting with her again even though its my international exams that make up my grade for my university. in the morning i woke up to my mom begging him to just stop cause he kept saying "i know what you do, i know your actions, i know your disgusting behaviour" (btw we know that this craziness is over once he just starts getting , ok? like it just dies down). as a child, id always step in, even get a few slaps if i had to to get in between him hurting her, but ive grown now and know my duties given to me by Allah, about respecting my parents, and getting in between ( my mom also keeps saying its just two more years, you'll be off to uni then and everything will be fine, and ' pls dont waste my sacrifices' everytime i want to interfere (hes threatened stopping me from studying several times). ever since i was small my dad has told me to aim for a scholarship because he knew more abput this stuff, but now i think, would he even let me leave the city let alone country to continue studies? hes rejected going to a psychologist, talking to anybody (he doesnt believe he has a problem, he thinks my moms the problem) about this, he says we make him angry and that before marriage he was never like this ( he has changed a lot in the sense that my mom and i can wear clothes like jeans but only with long shirts (my moms always worn a duppatta over her head (covers her hair)). cant get my dads side involved firstly, theyd love this. secondly, theyre all like this themselves. his sisters do burka andd all but theyre always free to go wherever whenever, meet whoever. they sometimes go ariund with this 'pir' (guy who does black magic) but if we point that out, all hell would brreak loose on us. (his sisters got married to two brothers, so same household). theyre background is from a not even respectable village, so i cant count on them. cant tell my moms side, they already have their own financial and family issues (my mom doesnt want us four to become a drama in our family, whatever that means cause like our house isnt already a drama). sometimes my mom gets so fed up, she says "MAY Allah TAKE ME SO YOU (my dad) CAN HAPPY AND MARRY ANOTHER WIFE" and now hes started saying " may he, so you burn in hell". he says all these other wives are so obedient and nice, but shes not. he says the money my mom brings in holds no value to him, even though she doesnt get to use it, he uses it all, our groceries and school fees are payed with it (oh and he hasnt had a job in years, sells plots and gets profit, but now none of that is working either so the 'no valued' monry shes been bringijng in since 6 years, is all that is coming into our house. hes in the world where Allah has made him the ' man' of this household, however he doesnt fulfill the duties and says my mom is the reason why there are no blessings in her house. he tells her to leaveher job, and says Allah will provide us with the money, that we'll be fine without hers (our fees are cut 75% short because of her, and we get house groceries, petrol for the car, and whatnot from her salary and our rent (which again is none of his own hardwork, our grandfather gave us this house)). i know this is very long, but please help me. ive thought about killing myself from the age of 7 to 14, i even used to self harm thinking if he saw me in the state hes put my mind in the pressure and the mistreatement (moms mistreatement is what gets to me, he doesnt do much to my brothers except for the middle one whom he thought wasnt his and rejected him emotionally for four years and now hes become habitual on scolding him the most, and my brother knows my dad rejects him the most but all he does is get upst over it). ive been so patient these pasts months, but ive had enough. this morning i walked in on them , half sleep, holding everything i could grab (like spray bottles, perfumes, my bloody mascara botle) to throw it at him because it seemed llike he was gonna get physical again. please help me, please please pplease
  20. Rumour has it that Witchcraft do prevent prayers from being answered. Living in an environment where witch craft is prevalent. How do one ultimately protect or curre self from witchcraft influence?
  21. Salam everyone, my mum was just talking to be about surat al ahzab, she said that it’s a very important surah for when you’re praying for something to happen. ( in my case, waiting for my dad to expect someone that is a different nationality who I want to marry) Can someone explain this further? And attach a complete surah so I can print it out? thank you in advance, if you don’t have the answer can you please tag someone that does
  22. Salaams All, I am a 25 year old girl, and I lost my dad on the 9th of June 2017. My Dad's death happened at home, His head on my lap, His hand in mine. His final moments with me. It has been so long, I have tried various amaal, various suras, but I still can not take the scene out of my head, nor can I accept the fact, that my dad is no more. I can not sleep, cannot eat. and I cry most of the time. Can anyone advice me what to do? How to stop from hurting?
  23. Salam alaykum sisters and brothers and Ramadan Kareem! Yesterday I found out methods of Istikhara and how to perform it by doing tasbeeh (counting beads with a rosary). I performed the same night the same method given out by imam Al Mahdi (A.S) and the first time I got an answer telling me to do it (what is on my mind). I performed again (the same method) after and it instead said to not do it. I then a few minutes after performed another method given out by another imam (A.S) which I forgot whom it was and my answer came out to be to do it. And now a day later i performed istikhara a few times with the different methods by different imams and some of the answers were to not do it while others were to do it. I then performed the istikhara given out by prophet Muhammad (A.S) which you get an answer from by opening the Quran after following some other steps and then seeing which sentence you get. I don’t remember which sentence/verse I got but if I would translate it to an answer I would say the answer were to not do it or like to not do something without Allah allowing it. I’m now very confused, shall I do the thing in my mind or not. I don’t remember if I got “do it” most or “do not do it” most. But I think I got “do it” maybe one or two times more than to not do it. Please if anyone knows what you shall do (based on knowledges) can you please advise me? And please brothers and sisters avoiding telling me to not do it only to be on the safe zone because I really want to make my decision but of course seek Allah the almighty’s knowledge and permission first. Jazakhum Allah Khayr o3alaykum alsalam o rahmat Allah o barakato! Here is the link to where all the methods that I performed are: http://www.duas.org/istikhara.htm
  24. I apologize for my frantic tone, I am extremely stressed out by this. Hello, good members of Shiachat. I have a question for you regarding how to study Islam, I simply have no idea how to approach the matter. With languages, I'd get a beginners book, then intermediate, then advanced; but Islam is the most and complicated subject in the world, there's 80 different beginners, all completely different, and I have no idea what the first step is. I was recommended two great sources of information, https://www.al-islam.org and http://www.shiavault.com. But I am paralyzed with the lack of structure and direction. I have no issue with reading every book featured, but I need to know what order to read the books in, and in what order to tackle the broad subjects. I don't want to flounder in one subject because I didn't study its prerequisite. It would be like starting Calculus before Algebra. And I also would like to understand another matter. Whenever I come here I am absolutely stunned by the rainman-esque level of knowledge, specifically when it comes to citation. A question is posed and somebody would rattle off citation after citation like a wizard. "You're wrong because of Hadiths X:x,X;d, X;a, X;r, X;d, X;s, X:q, X:t, X:23, X:33, X:32, X:34, X:65,X:12". Then the other guy says, "Well, if you'd check Hadith X, specifically 3:55, 6:33, 5:12, 6:98, 9:09, 2:34, you'll see blah blah blah....". "Hmmmmm well, yes, but, I must say that Hadith 3:55, which you've mentioned, is tha3eef because the 15th chain down from the primary source was known to be a habitual liar, and his goldfish and cat were kaffirs. How on earth do you do this? Knowing all these Hadiths, the history behind them ( and anything they'd throw at you), and then somehow keeping it all in your brain. Again, I apologize for my anxiety, but my ignorance is killing me and I am desperate. I eagerly await your advice, and thank you in advance.
  25. Hello brothers and sisters, I have come to this forum in order to make myself feel at ease, as I don't know how to make things better any other way. My sister is an athiest. We grew up in a very loving home, although we had trouble with an abusive father (a father who grew up in a war torn country with a horrible upbringing) my mother is loving and is the most kind and caring person on this planet. She poured her life and soul into me and my siblings growing up. She has always been a very religious Muslim mother and she tried her very best to make us all pray and read the Quran. My father has changed a lot in the years and is not the violent person towards us as he was years ago, so I don't quite understand why my sister is the way she is now (if she says the reason is because of how my father used to be). I have not grown up to be the most religious person in the world, but I still know I have a very special relationship with Allah in my own special way. I know he is looking down at me and guiding me on the right path. I don't know why my sister turned out to not believe in God, but it makes me feel uneasy. My mother worked hard all her life to teach us how to pray and read the Quran, and I know it would break her heart to know one of her children turned out like this. Everytime I speak about our religion, she seems to dislike it more and more and I know theres nothing I can do to change her mind myself (she doesn't listen to me out of spite). I would like to ask a couple of questions, brothers and sisters please be kind. How do I make myself feel better about this? How can I help her, if that is possible? How do I deal with her doing and saying things out of spite? Does Allah show people the right path? Will Allah hate her for turning her back? As someone who isn't that religious I've come here with a lot of hope in my heart. Thank you.
