  1. Salaam alaikoum dear brothers and sisters, It's highly recommended to perform the night prayer. This prayer has a lot of benefits and will help you in this life and in the hereafter inshaAllah. Imam ‘Ali (a.s.) said: “Staying awake in the (last part of the) night is healthy for the body, pleasing to the Lord Almighty, a means of Divine Mercy and adherence to the akhlaq of the prophets (a.s.). (al-Khisal: 121) My question is how do you spend or how would you like to spend your night in worship? Do you read, study, pray in the night? And how much time do you use for it? What are your personal experiences and miracles/benefits? Jazzakum Allahu khayr!
  2. I was taught to offer namaz in sunni way can anybody teach me the proper way(shia) pointing out the differences providing the source to learn as well jazakallah
  3. Bismillah i Rahman i Raheem Salaam un Alaikum I was recently told that the proper time to perform the Asr prayer is 2 hours after the Zuhr, according to Ayatollah Sistani. However, many Shia apps often tell me the time for Asr, about 4 hours after the Zuhr. I would like to know for sure what Ayatollah Sistani says about the timing of the Asr prayer. JazakAllah Alaikum us Salam
  4. Salaam I have a simple question to ask. Is it alright if one cries while performing their prayers (Salaah)? As in, does it invalidate the prayer or no? JazakAllah W. Salaam
  5. Asslamoalaikum Wa Rehmatullah Hae Wa Barakatu. My Question is that I came to know that one can not offer prayer in a room where pictures are hanging. In my room there are pictures handing behind me when I offer prayer and certain on my left side on the wall and on right side on the wall. Can I offer prayer in this room. There is no picture in front when I face Qibla. Please specially tell the fatwa of Ayatullah Ali Al Sistani (hz)
  6. What are the guidelines to allow one to sit and offer salaat. It is increasingly seen these days in mosques the high number of people taking to sitting and offering salaat. Can someone throw light on the border line to make a decision on when is one allowed to sit and pray?

    Waswas in namaz intention

    Assalamualeikom, I always have a waswas that I want to quit from namaz, which is in my marja' fatwa it invalidates namaz even if it is just to ponder about it. I never have khushoo' and relaxed mind in my namaz, for this always happens everytime. Is there an opinion saying that it does not invalidates from another marja' taqleed? And Is it permissible for me to take that other marja's opinion only regarding to this issue and left my marja' opinion? Or should I leave my marja' and taqleed to (maybe) a new marja' that has that opinion? Because it is really really annoying and I don't think I can get rid of my waswasa though. Thank you very much
  8. Assalamualaikum, I will be traveling to the Middle East in a couple weeks in shaa Allah, and I have a bunch of questions regarding prayer. Keep in mind I am a relatively new convert, so please be patient with me. 1) I read that all prayers during travel are 2 rakat. What counts as "travel"? I will be traveling for around 14 days, going in between cities, staying a couple nights in each and going around either to nearby cities or exploring the city I am staying in each day. Is "travel" simply the plane rides and bus rides, or the whole trip, since I am not staying in the same place the whole time? 2) Part of my trip will be in Jerusalem, and I plan to pray at Al Aqsa in shaa Allah. I was warned by a Palestinian friend of mine, however, that it is very dangerous if I pray like a Shia there and I should do taqiyyah and perform my prayers like a Sunni. Given recent events, it is even more dangerous to be praying noticeable differently at Al Aqsa, as people might suspect me to be a Zionist actor and become violent. Do I have to make up prayers later that are performed in taqiyyah? 3) Just in general, what are the rulings on praying salat at a Sunni mosque with Sunnis? The nearest Shia mosque to me is 3 hours away, and I cannot drive. The nearest Sunni mosque is 15 minutes by bus. If I prayed Jummah there, would I follow the imam or do it the way we do it? Would I stand in line with all of the others, or just quietly do my own thing in the back? Background note, I am a woman, so since congregational Jummah prayers are not obligatory upon me, I have not been going to the mosque. 4) If I am in a situation where I am unable to find pure water or dust for wudu, should I pray anyway, or would they not count? Is impure water better than nothing? 5) What's up with sutrahs? Do we use those anymore, or does a prayer rug essentially outline the space necessary for salah? JazakAllah khair and thank you for your patience with me.
  9. Assalamualaikum, Is it better to do something that could be wajib but may be haram, or to abstain from it because it could be haram but may be wajib? Let me explain (brothers be warned, this is a menstruation question). I am a woman whose menstruation is unpredictable. I never know when it will start. Most of the time, blood is just very brief spotting rather than the start of a period, but obviously sometimes it's actually the start of menstruation. I also can't tell by the color or consistency of the blood which one it is. Whenever this happens, I'm always thrown into an ethical dilemma. Salat is wajib, but it's haram during menstruation. So I panic -- should I pray, or should I not pray? If I pray and I'm on my period, I have done something haram. But if I don't pray and it turns out I'm not on my period, I have done something haram. Normally after around 20 minutes of agonizing over this question, I opt to pray. Usually this is the right decision, but occasionally I am wrong. Rarely, I am confident that yes, I am in fact starting my period, and opt to not pray. I have been wrong, though. I am leaning towards that it is better to pray and be wrong than to not pray and be wrong. Would you agree or disagree?
  10. Salam I don’t know if this applies to all Shias but from what I am aware of in my community we only pray 3 times a day unlike other Muslims who prays 5 times a day. I think we combine prayers? Either way I have passed the age where children have to start praying and I don’t know how to. I can’t find any online Shi’a praying instructions only Sunni ways. And the amount of times isn’t the only difference, we do different gestures as well I think and we pray with a clay tablet too. Can someone give me instructions on how to pray like Shias?
  11. Asslam Alaikum, Q: A person meets the conditions for which qasar namaz should be offered. Now, at mosque, where he is going to offer the prayer, will be lead in full. So what is recommended in this situation ? 1.Offer full prayer with Jammat. 2.Offer the qasar namaz with jammat. (Traveler will finish qasar namaz before others. What to do while others continue to pray. Just sit ...?? ) 3.Refrain from Jammat and offer individual prayer only. __________________________________________________________________ Ya QAEM ALAJAL

    Intentional qibla deviation

    Is it permissible to intentionally deviate from the real direction of qibla (under 45 deg) if we have known that? The mosque I usually take a prayer in has a direction marks towards qibla and everyone does take a prayer based on that mark, but it i have discovered with a compass that the actual qibla is actually slightly deviated from the mark. Since I know that fact, is it obligatory for me to take a qibla with the direction of the compass or may I still utilize that mark and do a namaz with slight deviation? Shukran

    Doubting doubts

    Assalaamualeikum, I have a problem with my doubting mind tendency, it seems like focusing on every act in prayer does not help me to get rid of my shakk problem. This suffering leds me to a question. I am in taqleed to Sayyid Sistani, one of his verdicts says Now please look at the phrase frequently doubts, for example, one might consider single doubt in three prayer successions and three doubts in single prayer to be condition that katheer al shakk rules may apply. Now, if I get three same shakks in single namaz or one same shakks in every three prayers succesions happened to me, and consider this as a unity of "three same shakks" and it is preceeded directly by another distinct shakk, 1. will I not be able to ignore a new doubt if i get shakk in the other act, because since I get the unity of "three same shakks" even after the preceeding distinct doubt, I have been considered as a particular-doubting person? 2. Is my understanding of the rule makes a good sense in namaz? Since it is kind of very difficult to list all of event in namaz, not even just to remember that one is in state of katheer al shakk or not. This problem just causes a doubt for a doubt in my mind. 3. If not, how must I do regarding this verdict? I mean, how is this rule exactly applied in one's prayers? I suggest the rule of Sunni brothers regarding to doubts is simpler since their parameter is just are the doubts is felt like a waswas or not, and as far as I know, not considering which act the shakk happens to. I hope Allah will give me guidance from your answers Jazakallahu Khayran Katheeran
  14. Salaams This Eid I will be going somewhere where i will not be able to perform Eid Namaz at mosque. I was just wondering if i will be able to perform it at home by myself. Thanks in advance.
  15. 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 and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!

    Ghosl required???

    Assalamun Alaykum, I have an ongoing problem with my prostate which is preventing me from doing namaz without worry. At times upon urinating, drops of semen is somehow mixing with the urine and exiting through the same way? I don't masturbate nor am i sexually active with anyone or in a marriage. My question is will these void my purity of doing namaz and wudu? and if so, do i have to do ghosl every time semen comes out? I'm still waiting to see a doctor. Many thanks.

    The Method of Offering Prayer

    Salam everyone, I would like to know what we are supposed to say when we are praying non obligatory prayers. For example I read somewhere that we can "offer a two-unit prayer" to Allah for desires fulfillment but what we are supposed to say before we start the two rak3at ? For the obligatory fard we say "nawaytou ana sali fard ..." but what do we say for the non obligatory prayers ? thank you.

  23. Assalamu 'alaikum, I have spent the whole morning looking for a cloth for my turbah, like these ones; http://mecollectibles.com/en/134-turbah-cloth, I was going to buy one from there but the shipping is crazily expensive and they don't ship to Sweden, so I'm wondering if anybody knows where I can buy a cloth similar to that, that isn't very expensive. I tried looking on ebay and amazon but I can't find anything there.
  24. Salamun Aleykum dear brothers and sisters, I wanted to ask a question about reciting loud- or silently during prayers. I'm not talking about the Qirat (reciting Surah al-Hamd and another Surah of the holy Quran). I want to know if I have to recite, while Ruku or Sajda, the recitations loud or silent (Subhana rabial Adhimi wa bihamdih & Subhana Rabi'al ala wa bi'Hamdih and the Tashahud and Taslim). My Marjaa Taqlid is Seyed Ayatullah Sistani. Excuse my english, but I'm not a native english speaker, nor am I living in the UK or USA ! Looking forward for your Answers! Wa Aleykum Salam WalAsr
