  1. It is interesting to note that, there is a 'DUA OF THE DAY,' HADITH OF THE DAY', but, there is no 'VERSE OF THE DAY' IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE AN Islamic FORUM? So in what HADITH AFTER THIS will they believe? 77-50
  2. Alhamdulilah, All this because of another thread Converts, Reverts, extrovert, introverts, invert, lil Uzi vert, Gerald levert...convicts, ex convicts!! Assimilation programs, rehabilitations programs?? You people would make new Muslims feel like unfortunate untouchables straight from an animal shelter. Can it not just be new believers or new brothers and sisters of the faith? What is a born Muslim? Technically every soul is pure before being mutilated by its parents or society. There is this pride with “born” Muslims who are from Muslim countries or raised Muslims that serves as a way to make themselves feel better about themselves in a hierarchy way. The bottom line is I have seen a lot of so called born Muslims from Muslim countries who are almost no different from Kuffar. They are out in the dunya here in states doing whatever. I see the kids of Born Muslim parents doing worse things than kuffar kids. A lot of born Muslims in Muslim countries are doing Islamic rituals as cultural habits or cultural norm and not necessarily for the pleasure of Allah. Their hearts are not really about Islam. They would rather be in another country not living as a Muslim or they wish their country wasn’t as “Islamic” strict. I have been to Muslim countries such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia and lived in Malaysia and Singapore and I can tell you there are “born” Muslims there who don’t know Jack about Islam. A lot of the Arabs only know the language but not Islam. And a lot of the so called Born Shia only know Ali or Hussein and when to come to the masjid and put on a Tear show for Karbala. Both of my parents are Muslim but as an individual I had to embrace Islam and act upon the pillars of my faith no matter where I am in the world especially because it’s easy to be involved in everything haraam in the states because it’s the norm. Even if you are raised Muslim that individual has to find his or her way to the straight path of Allah. Giving new brothers and sisters these systematic identity terms that segregate them as believers is something that even the Christians don’t do here in the states. Some Christians May call themselves born again or reformed which is way better in my opinion. Assimilate the converts ?? Assimilate the reverts?? Sounds like terms for ex convicts getting freshly out of prison who have no money, education, or communication abilities. Awwww! Look at the poor convert/revert Muslim! Should we offer him a meal? Yes, give him Some dates! it’s sadiqah! Can you say SALAAAAM WA LAIKUM??? One thing you can do to make new brothers and sisters feel part of the faith is talk to them like people and befriend them like they are human. Talk to them about their struggles and your struggles. Learn their culture and teach them yours. The foreign Arab and Shia Muslims are socially inept here in the states. They are outta of touch so they isolate themselves in their exclusive cultural center “masjids” to feel better about themselves I guess. It’s really the Sunni tableeki Pakistani brothers and African American Muslims doing the ground work for Islam on the street level which really matters. They make new Muslims feel like Muslims without giving them segregated degrading titles. I saw on another thread someone say what what if their kids marry a a white foreign Muslim or even worse a black Muslim??? Whaaaaaat? The ummah 2019 everybody. Smh This is why when the Mahdi is here Islam is going to seem like a totally different religion. Just how prepared are you guys for the Mahdi? May Allah have mercy on the believing men and believing women.
  3. The Rise of the Qa'im: The Appearance of the Mahdi in Established Narrations https://www.amazon.com/dp/1790653827 "The Rise of the Qa'im" is a compilation of narrations on the Mahdi from the most ancient and most reliable Twelver Shīʿī sources. Learn about the birth of the Twelfth Imam, his occultation, his ambassadors, his inevitable return, Islamic eschatology, and much more. "The Rise of the Qa'im" is the most comprehensive English work on the subject. It includes Arabic sources, footnotes, and biographical evaluations for each tradition. This has been endorsed by eminent Shīʿī scholars and academics as one of the most valuable insights on the Hidden Imam in English.
  4. Assalamo alaikum, I was wondering whether there were any Prophets that were black or of very dark colour? If there were, who they were, and how do we know for sure about the colours. Also, what about the prominent Prophets, such as Hazrat Isa (A.S.), Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S.), and others, what complexion where they of? It's just a general curiosity, and I'm not targeting any sensitive topics or such, just want to gain some knowledge because as i've grown being taught about such personalities, but for some odd reason i'd only think of them as white or fair prophets, i guess its just how we've been wired to think, even as children, even though i don't remember my parents or teachers ever specifying such a thing. Looking forward to all the feedback,
  5. The Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim In the name of Allah most gracious most Merciful. La illaha illAllah Muhammador Rasoolullaah May Allah shower his blessings on Muhammad and his Ahlul Bayt. Asalaam wa laikum brothers and Sisters, Alhamdulilah, for the past year when I turned 40 years of age strange occurrences happened to me and in these strange occurrences I believe that an insight was given to me as to a more definitive structural outlook of believers and outlook of disbelievers or unbelievers. I do not claim to receive revelation or alter revelation of the Holy Qur'an in any form. I only seek to understand Allahs Holy Book and how it relates to the nature of our existence in the past, present, and future. Please do give thought and reflection so that we all may enhance our understanding of our religion and ourselves. I was Born and raised only by title as a Sunni Muslim for most of my teenage years and then introduced to Ahlul Bayt in a blessed strange occurrence on the 19th of Ramadhan in the year 2000. For years I saw disbelievers as any religion outside the precincts of Al Islam with the exception of the people of the book whom I saw as Christians and Jews etc who lost their ways and went astray into disbelief. But then after some strange occurrences leading up to my 40 birthday while in the midst of reflection and thought one night in Rajab, it suddenly dawned on me at that moment! Human beings are two different species! The Holy Qur'an breaks us into two different species, Believers and Disbelievers. As we are created from dust ranging widely, We look alike and have physical features that resemble that of being of the same human race, but our patterns of thought and nature are on a completely different signal. This signal is the very signal that would not allow the two species to ever peacefully co exist throughout the time upon the Earth which we know as the ever revolving battle between good vs evil. The Holy Qur'an mentions how the two species kill each other by nature. This is why the Angels questioned Allah about the very existence of Man before being created and Allah scolded them. The Angels limited in knowledge only understood that in free will being a huge factor in the existence for man would give the disbelieving men and jinn the drive for war and bloodshed and rebellion and against Allah and his believing servants. So Allah revealed the exalted personalities which were to come through the loins of Adam AS over the course of time. Free will is part of the factor which creates the signal that separates the two species of humans. Allah mentions in the Qur'an how he could have made us one Nation but he didn’t. The unbelievers are those who fully exercise free will in believing there is no God and their desires become their God or they attribute others to God or even believe themselves to be a God like Ibliss, Nimrod, Pharaoh etc. By exercising full free will their hearts become blackened and hard like stone and in which a seal is set around that stone and then you have the expression their fate is sealed. They are therefore deaf, dumb, and blind. They are on a complete different signal which is why surah Kafirun was revealed. The Holy Qur'an is a signal to the believers who would be coming from different backgrounds through the loins of believers and Disbelievers alike warning them to submit which is what Islam essentially means, Those who submit their free will to Allah and are in peace, because the reality is that there is no free will outside the Tawhid of Allah. All creation outside of free will recognizes the Oneness and majesty of Allah. Those who believe are on the same signal of oneness even if they are not of Al Islam itself. It’s this signal which drives believers to Al Islam. It is how Allah makes the believers. If you read suratul Jinn, in this chapter believing jinns sought request to the presence of Muhammad SAW and so they explained how a group of them are believers and the others are like a different species or group who attribute sins and daughters with Allah. This is nature of the disbelievers to willfully sin and deceive and cause mischief in rebellion to the existence of Allah. There is no conscious or remorse with their sin and it’s purposeful. All the major sins are the same for them and they all excel at certain sins more that others. Like the believers who excel at certain good deeds and gain status in Jannah it is the same for people of Jahannam in regards to their evil deeds. On judgment day these disbelievers and munafiqoon who were amongst believer ranks will show up blackened faces and disfigured and bad smells. The true nature of their evils and who they really are will show. The disbelievers are a different species and This is why Allah forbids believers from eating their meat and taking them for friends and marrying them because They will always be of a rebellious sinful nature and only seek to do you harm and pull you away from the straight path. They don’t guard their thoughts and modesty. Their ambition to fulfill there desires is unguarded and they will oppress and transgress in fulfilling those desires in beastly ways and systematically. When believers sin they not only sin against themselves but they participate in sins that essentially are helping disbelievers rebel. The major Sins that are characteristic of the unbelievers can deform the soul of a believer and therefore he has to be cleansed through repentance or the grave or hellfire. When you think about the worlds problems most stem from disbelievers machinations and beastly ways. You watch the news and see a story and think to yourself who would do such a thing? The disbelievers would do such things because their minds work differently. Their lust for murder, raping, stealing, control, abuse, fornicating, gambling, drinking, vanity, etc is strong within them as individuals and collectively as towns, cities and nations. Allah has constantly been destroying certain lands based on not just the unbelief but the heavy sins that accompany unbelief. Allah mentions this in the Qur'an many times. In the Shaitan’s war against man he has everyone fighting against each other which takes the focus off him and his allies. There are believing Christians who are monotheistic but it is plagued by munafiqoon pretending to be Christian by calling Jesus the son of God or God outright. These are pagan Christians which are essentially unbelieving hypocrites and these type of hypocrites are in the ranks of Islam and most worldly religions who’s main principal is Tawhid as well. Allah knows the believing hearts and disbelieving hearts. They can’t fool Allah. The disbelievers aim is to disprove Allahs existence and deteriorate society by turning what’s unlawful into lawful and turning what’s lawful into unlawful. These are the owners of the fire, the people on the left who will be the losers on judgement day. It is in Gods mercy that we are not just Muslim but Shia Muslim Accepting all tenants of Allahs universal holy book and order. It makes us the upper echelon of believers. So it is imperative that we hold on to the rope of faith firmly. Those who didn’t accept all tenants but had tawhid will have to answer to Allah but salvation is attainable. Remember Muhammad SAW asked that of his ummah even those who just held on to La illaha illAllah will attain Jannah at some point and the last man to come out of Jannah will have had held on to just that, leaving Shaitan with those disbelievers he was meant to be with and not one believer. Give glad tidings to the believers when you see them especially because you don’t know the psychological duress that the enemies of Allah have them under in many different environments. There are believers who haven’t formally taken shahadah walking around trying to make sense of the evils in this world not realizing that the disbelieving men and women have joined forces with the like minded of the disbelieving jinn devils. I read a Hadith a long time ago in Muhammad says “those who understand Islam are in fact Muslim by heart”. I believe this refers to that universal signal of tawhid and goodness. Inshallah may Allah have mercy on the believing men and women around the world and forgive us our sins of ignorance, sins of arrogance, and sins of negligence.
  6. Are keeping Hamster as pets permissible in Islam?
  7. For the past couple of weeks, I have heard about how Sheikh Jaffer Jaffer has said something controversial about some Pakistani cultural practices. In my community, there has been a huge uproar from the Pakistani side. Anyways context aside, does anyone know what he said and as well what are your opinions on it. (I personally think that you should not be getting so mad about it because it is culture not religion)
  8. Is watching romantic movies or shows haram? What if one doesn't look at "those" scenes? If there's sources like from Sayid Sistani, that would be awesome.
  9. Aslam o Alaikum, Ya Ali((عليه السلام)) Maddad. I wanted to ask there are 12 Imams, but is there any particular reason to Call it Fiqah-e-Jaffer, rather than putting name of anyother Imam, thanks, May Allah guide everyone to send LANAT on the enemies of Ahlulbyt.
  10. From the teachings of Imams (عليه السلام), the virtues of marriage are clear. Examples: The Prophet (S) said, “One who marries, has already guarded half of his religion, therefore he should fear Allah for the other half.” And in the Qur'an: “And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.” (Surah an-Nur, 24:32) I am a 21 year old male who goes to university in Canada, and I will be graduating in 2 years Inshallah. I am also a convert to Islam, and I've accepted the school of the Ahlul Bayt shortly after my conversion. Because the scholars recommend marriage early, I am looking for a way to get married to a religious and faithful wife. Looks and ethnicity are not important for me, it is enough if she is strongly committed to God and the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt. Can some of the brothers here give me some advice? Should I wait more because I am new to Islam? How can I find the right person when I don't have a Shi'a family or any Shi'a friends? There are many Sunni women at the University, but I would much rather it be someone who is a follower of the Ahlul Bayt. There is no Shi'a mosque near me, but when I graduate I plan to immediately move to a place where there is a Shi'a community (probably Toronto). Thanks
  11. What can I say about this movement. There is alot of truth and a lot of falsehood at the same time. First, the truth There are many powerful men who use their position in order to take advantage of women. They oppress them, treat them unfairly, degrade them, and sometimes even rape them. This is true and these men should definitely be exposed and punished. We as muslims know that if they are not punished in this life, they definitely will be in the next. I especially feel sorry for our sisters who do not do anything to encourage this and do not play games to trade 'this for that' and despite being modest and not playing games they still end up becoming victims of these corrupt men. All I can tell these women is that Allah(s.w.a) definitely hears the dua' of the oppressed muslim/a and responds to it. The response may not come immediately, but it is guaranteed to come and Allah(s.w.a) will turn these dua' into additional reward for these sisters who stay within the haqq. We are living in a world where power is concentrated more and more in the hands of a few, and this is a big part of the problem. There are fewer and fewer opportunities for women (and men also) who are not wealthy and do not have the right connections so they are forced to endure degradation and humiliation at the hands of corrupt men. Noone deserves this and it is a very sad commentary on the times we live in that there are so many who have to endure this. The Falsehood The bad part of this movement is that it is reviving a bad sort of feminism that says that all men are perpetrators and all women are victims when it comes to sexual harassment. They are promoting a sort of cartoon like reality in which it is little red ridinghood against the big bad wolf. The actual reality of harassment is usually much more complex than that. There are many women who use their 'feminine charms' in the workplace and other situations to gain an advantage over their male colleagues and increase their own power and influence and then when any man calls them on it or does something they don't like, they cry 'sexual harassment'. There are just as many corrupt, power hungry women as there are corrupt, power hungry men. So now you hear that the solution is to put more women in positions of power. This is of course ridiculous. You want people who are not greedy, power hungry, corrupt , and selfish in positions of power whether they are women or men. It is their character that matters, not their gender. In Islam, we are taught that the more power you have, the more accountability you have before Allah(s.w.a). We want people in positions of power who believe in Allah(s.w.a) and are just and knowledgeable and realize that they are accountable and act accordingly. If they focus is other than this, on gender, political party, etc, we will just be trading one set of problem for another set of problems and ultimately not get anywhere. IMHO.

  13. Do we have Islamic traditions about the Three Kings who alledgely came from Persia to Palestine to pay homage to Nabiullah Isa (as) ?
  14. Salaam Alaykum, Like Brother Qa'im, I am humbly presenting my new book on the life of our dear Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The book's full title is, "Prophet Muhammad: A Young Adult's Guide to the Early History of Islam." Released on the 17th of Rabi ul-Awwal, 1440 (Nov. 25th, 2018), this book is the most recent publication on the Prophet of Islam (pbuh), compiled from the two most authentic sources, the Holy Qur'an and the narrations of the Holy Ahlulbayt (as). The book is written in simple to understand language, leaving out the peripheral details and the diverse interpretations of events. It makes it a perfect bridge material between the K-5 level books and our more advanced classical works, making it an easy read for the young adults or anybody who wants a thorough but light study on the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The ideal age group would be 'more aware', 10-90 years youth. Warning: As you read this book, get ready to fall in love with your Prophet again and again. This is how good he is, in how little I could capture of his blessed life in this book, in less than three-hundred pages worth. The book is available worldwide in Kindle and Paperback formats through Amazon.com and its affiliates in various countries. If you choose to get it, kindly leave the comments on Amazon.com to help out the next reader searching for the reading material on the life of the Holy Prophet (pbuh). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KXLVH8J/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U__xOYdCb2EWXTG
  15. Personally, I will begin fitness. Need to live a healthy lifestyle and quit kebab, falafel and soft drinks. With the help of Allah, I will succeed.
  16. Salam. This topic was posted a while ago. This is a paper I co wrote with Br. Basim Ali and Sis Bint Al Hoda (no longer active on the site). It was originally shared as a google doc. It is now shared with 253 people, I guess that's the max google will allow. I have placed in my google drive as a public document, so we no longer have the 'request access' limit. I will post this document periodically as people request access to it. I guess there is a lot of interest in this topic. Enjoy ? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JDUJ0Oj3VhWSqoAULydoSPgb627bLNSsO4_KiyeTUGI/edit?usp=sharing
  17. [ADMIN NOTE]: This is a thread devoted to sharing stories and issues pertaining to all reverts to Islam, particularly Shia Islam. Allah bless you. Salam Alekum, I am writing an article regarding women reverts to Islam. The common belief amoung researchers is that the vast majority of revert women between 17 to 35 are married to non revert men (arab, persian, indo/pak, etc). So I would like as many revert sisters as possible to participate in order to get some good information regarding this subject. Please do not vote unless you are a revert to Islam, a women, (not born into a muslim family and currently identify your religion as Islam) and between the ages of 17 to 35. Some definitions. Non revert muslim man. A man who was born into a muslim family and currently identifies his religion as Islam revert muslim man. A man who was not born into a muslim family and currently identifies his religion as Islam.
  18. Salam brothers and sisters, Is there trustful way to donate Yemeni people? As you know they are suffering hardly... There are a few organizations in my country that claim to do this but some of them are allied with Muslim Brotherhood, FSA or etc, they are on the side of our enemies. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi All.. I have been in so much confusion about colouring the hair... I haven't got any reliable sources telling me if colouring the hair is allowed or not and if it is allowed then of what kind of colours..? I have personally coloured my hair with light orange strip in the front part of head.. Can any one please throw light on this if colouring the hair is allowed or not as per Islam and if yes then of what kind please..
  20. why does qabd and amin nullify prayer according to Shias? So it means those billions of Sunni muslims who practice qabd and recite amin their prayer will be invalid and they will go to hell for that!? How can a persons worship nullify when he/she is sincere to Allah in worship?
  21. Salam Everyone, Just curious to see people's opinion about this, I have listed the responses I have usually heard from people in this regard. Your votes will not be public and will only appear as numbers. Inc.
  22. as salaam alakim! What do Shia in the West and US, think about the democratic party, do they help Islamic cause in US or are they doing it for publicity? Some thought they did dawah by encouraging islam to be learned in Schools and supported Islamic issues. Are Democrats friends of muslims and shias?
  23. as they are told in the Koran. And yet they are told to be grateful ergo happy. Isn't that a paradox?
  24. Dr Hewer is an English scholar of Islam and Christianity. In a set of four lectures, he tries to explain Christianity to a Muslim audience. Part I Part II Part III Part IV Enjoy
