    Salah

    Hi, I'm learning about Shia and would like to know how you do Shia Salah? thank you
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Salaam everyone, inshaAllah you are well. I am 20, female. Baiscally, I have missed around 11 years of prayers (counting from age 9). I have prayed in between but not regularly. Also I doubt my prayers were right/accepted. I finally learnt my salaah properly recently. So now I have around 11 years of missed prayers. What is the quickest and simplest way of catching up on these prayers? I follow Sistani if that's any help. JazakAllah Khairun !!!!!!!!
  5. I learned how to pray when i was a child. But I had forgotten over time. I can't even remember how it happened. I feared telling my parents, because I did not want to get in trouble (I was still a child) and to much time passed by. I could not ask people around me, as they would get me in trouble, and I mean, I would have been in such a huge amount of trouble, and I wont list the details. It's just bad. So I tried and tried to search online, but i was still to young to know words and terms to search and when i did, it was in English roman letters, i could not understand the pronunciation. And if it were in Arabic, it would be people making false prayers for Shia's. (By the way, I am shia). Eventually, i made friends with good people who did not judge me or spread rumors about me. And helped me through with praying again. Alhamdullah, i have worked hard to be a good Muslim during the years I did not pray. But I began to feel like a complete Muslim when I started to pray. Here is another problem, the way my parents teach Salah, its forceful and not good. In fact, I don't think any of my siblings pray and don't care. During the time i did learn, it was horrible. I don't blame myself for how things came to be. And my Arabic is absolutely terrible, i did not know how to read or write and lacked speaking skills, so i could not even search in Arabic. Or in the end, i was just terrible at it. But I did put effort, and it did put me through a depression throughout the years, id cry in secret, because I did not know how to pray. Again, I worked hard to be a good Muslim, while telling Allah to forgive me and promising ill start eventually and never miss another salah. What I am curious about is, do I need to make up those prayers I had missed? I don't even remember when it happened, how it happened. I don't mind making up all the salahs, because they were salahs i wanted to perform to begin with, i never tried to miss it on purpose, and now that I pray, I don't miss a single one. Still, if I do not need to make any up, I would like to know. I follow Sayed Sistani if it helps. I thank anyone in advance for responding and helping
  6. I have learned that there are significant differences between the videos I have seen on Shi'a salah as compared to what I have been practicing as a Sunni, following the Shafi'i Madhab. These differences include: combining prayers, prostrating on a Turbah (prayer stone), not saying Ameen after al-Fatiha, the recitation upon standing from Jalsa, different words in Tahhajud, saying SubhanAllah, Al hamdu lillah, la ilaha illAllah and Allahu Akbar 3X in 3rd and 4th rakats instead of al-Fatiha, saying salam once straight ahead instead of to right then left, and 3X Allahu Akbar to end salah. I have similarly recognized differences between the 4 Sunni Madhabs and chose the Shafi'i as it seemed to me the most authentic as being based on Hadith collections.. The questions I have are, "What is the basis for the Shi'a way of offering salah and why is it significantly different?" Is it based on Shi'a collections of hadith or passed down by word of mouth and demonstration? Should we not follow the way that Prophet Muhammad (saaws) prayed as closely as humanly possible?
  7. 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.
  8. Alaikum Salaam Brothers And Sisters, Allah's Blessings Be Upon You All!! So I'm Hoping I Can Be Directed To A Online Store That Sells Shia PrayerMats? I Appreciate Any And All Assistance! Alaikum Salaam! Allahumma Salli Ala Muhammad Wa Ala Ali Muhammad!!
  9. Can the nafila rakats for the prayers be offered after fard for dhuhr, asr, maghrib, and isha. And is there nafila prayer for Salat Al Jummah
  10. Salam, I have observed different ways how Shiite end up Salah. end up with assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah... and supplement with Allah akbar thrice alongside raising both hands end up with assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah... and supplement with Allah akbar thrice alongside raising both hands + second and third "Allah akbar and raising hands" is accompanied by successive turning of face right and left end up with assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah seeing on right side only... and supplement with Allah akbar thrice alongside raising both hands facing front (qibla) Please share what is right and most authentic, and if right thing is missing from above, I want to know that and correct my way of doing so. Jazakum Allah
  11. Salam aleykum, I was wondering how one can pray on an airplane when one cannot do it standing? I have heard many different things and I would just like some clarity regarding how it is done. In the past I have been lucky with prayer times but I have a flight coming up iA where I think my prayers will become qadha if i dont perform them in the air.

    State of Janaba

    Salem aleykum brothers and sisters, Please bear with me as I have afew things to get through. Discussing this topic is quite intimidating and embarrassing, hence why I haven't managed to pluck up the courage to seek out help and knowledge untill now. And I would like it if you were a little considerate with your answers please, Thank you. So, my topic is Janaba from masturbation. It all started around a year ago when I first started this bad habit, it was out of curiosity initially but eventually became an addiction. At that time of the year I was in a very depressed state, often thinking about suicide ( for no particular reason.) The urge was strong but I never went ahead with it because I did not want to think that I have become hopeless of my creator. I was aware that suicide was haram and it is irreversible. So, i would often just try and find ways to feel better to get rid of those thoughts. and I guess that's where the idea of masturbation came from ( since medically it's seen as stress relieving etc.) Though I knew masturbation is haram but I had to weigh up the odds of it taking me out of that mindset of suicide (which is irreversable)(and yes i know there are better ways but barely anything worked for me at the time) And it was only intended as temporary thing. But it became a horrible addiction pretty soon that continued for the past year. It started to make me depressed even more because I knew I was disobeying Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì and prayed for help +repented. But after a while I gave up. Because even after I would repent out of guilt and said I wouldn't do it, I did it again. Nonetheless, I eventually managed to cut down the activity (pretty much stopped it) but then again I can never be to sure of myself. All I am sure of is that I want to do whatever I can to compensate for my actions so they may be pardoned. I know that closeness to Allah (Praises be to him) is the only thing that can give me peace in its entirety. Alhamdulilah, this Ramadan has been a blessing and really healing for me so far. However, I made the mistake again last night after a streak of going quite a long time without it(for me.) If there is any time of the year to kick evil habits it is Ramadan. Inshallah, I will continue to try. If you if you have any Duas, recommendations etc for this sort of thing,that would be really helpful. Now for my real question: all of this past year that I have been praying etc is without ghusl of Janaba. My fasts up untill now were without them too. Its not that i lack islamic knowledge generally, I do often seek it and practice it. However, I never came across Janaba in regards to woman doing them. I didn't know State of Janaba was a thing! Im not that old to be married. it's not a topic that is taught to young girls because I guess it is assumed they will do not masturbate. (Unlike males where it is kind of expected of them so they are prewarned about it.) Even online there isn't much about females in this sort of area. Firstly I'm still unsure and confused, can a female enter state of Janaba through masturbation? If so that means that I have been impure while doing my fasts and prayers up untill now. I am concerned as to what I should do about the fasts i have kept this Ramadan so far. Do they count? Should I make up for them? What about my salah? A whole year worth of my salah is invalidated? Do I have to redo them? Bearing in mind I didn't start regularly praying till like 14/15 or so. (Wasn't religious/ didn't understand my religion well) though alhamdulillah God guided me eventually and discover the sweeteness of salah. I have always intended to makeup those 5 years but don't know how and never got around to it. And now will another year's worth be added on to it? How can I make it possible to complete them with every day responsibilities like School, work etc. I apologise for the lengthy post but the reason why I described everything was maybe if any of you find faults in my thinking or ways maybe able to point out and help. Help a sister out of ignorance. Thank you for your time and may Allah send his mercy and blessings on all of you and your families this Ramadan. Inshallah
  13. Can anyone help me on, how to pray the prayer of Ja3far al Dayar? Thank you very much!
  14. Bismillah irrahman irrahim please advise me how to pray 34 rak'ah of nawafil salah, because I have never been taught of how to pray them. I know the timings though, but not how to pray them, meaning how many rak'ah is one salah. Jazakumullahu khairan shukran afwan
  15. Hi everyone. I hope you guys are safe and well. I would love for an Shias to help me with the salah. I also want to learn the Shia wudu as well. I am a female, so I would like to learn the ghusl i need to perform in the shower after my period is finished. I have been trying to look online, but i have found resources made by Muslims that are making false versions of Shia salah. I used to know how to pray the Shia way. But I went to a Sunni school where I was forced and abused to learn there style. Now I have forgotten, and at the time i was to terrified to talk to my parents about this. I still am... No matter what, i will never have the courage to tell my parents. They are not the forgiving type or the understanding type either. Please.... I just want to know everyone right away again. I cannot stand this wait any longer. If it helps, I am Southern Iraqi.
  16. salaam alaikum everyone are there recommended surahs to say in each salah after fatiha? for example, http://www.revivingalislam.com/2011/04/surahs-to-recite-in-salat-namaz.html Salaah Surah Name Surah # (Respectively) Al-Fajr (Al-Ghadaaa’) Qiyaamah, Insaan, Naba', Ghaashiyyah 75, 76, 78, 88 Al-Dhuhr `Ala, Shams, Ghaashiyyah 87, 91, 88 Al-`aSr Ikhlaas, Nasr, Zilzalah, Takaathur 112, 110, 99, 102 Al-Maghrib Ikhlaas, Nasr, Zilzalah, Takaathur 112, 110, 99, 102 Al-`Ishaa’ `Ala, Shams, Ghaashiyyah 87, 91, 88 jazakallahu khayran
  17. 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.
  18. Assalamu alaikum, My question is pretty simple but it is something I haven't really understood about qunoot. When you do qunoot, can you make du'a in your own language or make dhikr (for example repeating astaghfirullah a few times or something similar) or do you have to recite a 'regular' du'a from the Quran, such as this one; RABBANAAA AATINAA FIDDUNYAA H’ASANATAW WA FIL AAKHIRATI H’ASANATAW WA QINAA A’D’AABAN NAAR I have always recited this du'a when doing qunoot but someone told me you can just ask Allah for forgiveness in your own words and I'm wondering if this is true or not?
  19. I was wondering about this for probably almost 2 years now. And I think It's time to let my question be asked to my brothers and sisters. My timezone for current salah to perform is about 1:02 PM Duhr time, 4:27 PM Aser, 7:20 PM Maghrib, and 8:16 PM Isha. After I come from school I take a shower and do wudu before praying. It is about 4:00 or 4:15 PM. Although, I wanted to know if Duhr prayer becomes qaza or any of any salah that passes by. 1) When does Duhr and Aser prayer become qaza? 2) When does Maghrib and Isha prayer become qaza?
  20. Asalam, can any one offer Qaza Namaz for his/her (late) mother? what would be method and (Niyat) to offer QAZA namaz for (late)
  21. Salam everybody Recently, I have been praying 2 rakat after fajr prayer for my mother's soul - she passed away. I have never come across any information on a prayer for the dead, except for namaz-e-Mayyat and Namaz wahsat-eqabar. I've never found a specific prayer to pray for the dead on a daily basis. So my question is, will these 2 rakats I do for my mother benefit her? Are there any hadiths on how the dead will benefit from people praying for them? Thank you
  22. S/a, I had gone on a business trip/family vacation for a few days. I had my wife and 4 kids with me. Before my travel, I had firmly reinforced my intentions of praying all my prayers on time. This has previously been a weakness for me (praying during travel), but since my spirituality has increased over the last time I traveled, I thought I would fare well. Unfortunately, I failed! :-( My first day was okay, but the remainder 6 days were not! I have been trying to search the reasons for me failing so easily and trying to see what I can do for the future so I do not repeat this poor behavior. So far, I feel the following factors contributed to my failure: quiet place to pray (I was in a VERY busy city and it seemed like there was people everywhere) clean place to pray (issues of najis/unclean areas) "inconvenience" of doing wuddhu - both with dress attire and having to do wuddhu in public areas fear of persecution in this political climate (go figure how much I depend on God!) responsibility of 4 kids being extremely tired and exhausted at end of day (to at least do qadha) being outside the comfort of home (or place I am familiar with) etc Can anyone suggest what I can do to make my connection with God be as strong during my periods of travel? Thanks. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Ironically, I found this (below) in my email on my arrival (it has started helping me and hope it helps others too): Quranic Reflections 6:16. Āyat 66:8 – Turning to Allah (swt) يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا تُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَوْبَةً نَصُوحًا Yā ayyuhalladhīna āmanū tubū ilallāhi tawbatan nasūha. O you who believe, turn to Allah a sincere turning (Sūratut Tahrīm, No. 66, Āyat 8) This verse is an invitation to turn back to God after having turned away from Him. For all those who have become distracted from God, have disobeyed Him, and have not made Him the focus of their lives, God calls them back to Him. He asks them to repent for the distance they have created between themselves and their Lord. It should be a sincere repentance based on awe of Allah (swt) and a disappointment with the self. The word nasūhā implies sincerity as well as a firm determination. Its purity prevents a person from returning to the pollution of sin. Turning back to Allah has to have the following qualities: a) Feeling remorse with the heart at having turned away b) Apologizing and seeking forgiveness with the tongue c) Stopping sins and all that turns one away from God d) Intending to continue quality (c), above. When the world is full of distractions and the human being is so weak, it is very easy to turn away from God. This does not only mean committing sins. Sometimes it is possible that a believer is not disobedient. But he is apathetic in his obedience. His connection with Allah is weak despite performing his wājibāt (the required obligations). This distance from God weakens his resolve and creates emptiness in life which he seeks to fill with other things. Allah tells him to turn back to him, sincerely and strongly. Such a turning back is valuable and can transform his life. It is incredible that the human being in all his weakness and smallness turns away from His creator. God in all His greatness and majesty calls him back. Why? After having created him, having blessed him with so much, giving him guidance so he can turn to Him, God still is patient with Him. He does not give up on him and invites him to come to Him. Imam Ali (a) says: Be obedient to Allah and love His remembrance. Picture to yourself that you are running away while He is approaching you. He is calling you to His forgiveness and concealing your faults with his kindness while you are fleeing from him towards others. (Nahjul Balāgha, Sermon 220) In Du‘ā al Iftitāh, recited in the nights of Holy Ramadān, we say: [O Allah] I have not seen a more generous master, patient with a wretched slave, than You are with me. My Lord, You call me and I turn away from You, You show affection to me and I show hatred towards You, You display Your love for me and I do not respond, as though I am above You. But this does not prevent You from having mercy on me, being good to me, and favoring me, through Your Generosity and Nobility Such is the Merciful God we worship. As we enter the season of worship during the months of Rajab, Sha’ban and holy Ramadhan, turn back to God with sincerity and determination. Recite this verse to remind yourself of God’s invitation and accept the call to turn to Him. Life will become much more meaningful and enlightened.
  23. I have been making a script that calculates Ramadan timings for muslims across the world. The calculations are accurate upto 30 seconds because we are using google map api with upto 6 decimal digits but the major problem is the difference between the two believers. Can someone tell me how the prayer times of Shia brothers and sunni brothers are calculated. What is the key factor that plays a major role in the difference of timings.
