  1. I reverted to Islam in December 2006. I have been doing ghusl wrong all these years by ignorance, not from laziness. I would make niyyat and wash my body, but never knew I had to wet my hair. So, because of my ignorance, do I have to do over, to make up and redo all my prayers of the past and all my fasts of the months of Ramadhan for the past 6 years? Jazakallah khairan for your answer! (wasalam)
  2. Salam, I had a question regarding missed days of fasting. I had a combined total of 121 days of fasting missed from the year 2010 to the year 2015. I had intentionally not fasted. I have been fasting every Ramadan since the year 2016. I started to make up the days that I missed starting in the year 2016, before the Ramadan of 2016, and was able to complete all 121 missed days before the start of Ramadan for the year 2019. I have not done anything else to make up my fasts other than fasting the days that I missed. What exactly is my kaffarah? I am a muqallid of Ayatollah Sistani. I went on Ayatollah Sistani’s website to figure out what exactly I had to do in order to become current on my fasts, but I got confused. I would really appreciate it if I can get guidance on what I exactly need to do. I regret not fasting on those days and I would like to fix it. Thank you.
  3. Assalamalekum Brothers and Sisters, It's the holy month of Muharram and the great Ashura has already passed. I would like to draw and topic to you and share my findings on the context. Kindly guide me on the issue if required. Fasting on 10th of Muharram is a common practice all over the world. However, I'd like to dissect the issue based on a lecture of Syed Ammar Nakshwani below: 1. Hadith of Fasting in Ashura Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Prophet (ﷺ) came to Medina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. He asked them about that. They replied, "This is a good day, the day on which Allah rescued Bani Israel from their enemy. So, Moses fasted this day." The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "We have more claim over Moses than you." So, the Prophet fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast (on that day). Sahih Bukhari: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 222 Narrated Abu Musa: The day of 'Ashura' was considered as `Id day by the Jews. So the Prophet (ﷺ) ordered, "I recommend you (Muslims) to fast on this day." Sahih Bukhari: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 223 Narrated Ibn `Abbas: When Allah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came to Medina, he found the Jews observing the fast on the day of Ashura. They (the Jews) were asked about it and they said: It is the day on which Allaah granted victory to Moses and (his people) Bani Isra'il over the Pharaoh and we observe fast out of gratitude to Him. Upon this the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: We have a closer connection with Moses than you have, and he commanded to observe fast on this day. Sahih Muslim: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 2518 Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) arrived in Medina and found the Jews observing fast on the day of 'Ashura. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to them: What is the (significance) of this day that you observe fast on it? They said: It is the day of great (significance) when Allaah delivered Moses and his people, and drowned the Pharaoh and his people, and Moses observed fast out of gratitude and we also observe it. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: We have more right, and we have a closer connection with Moses than you have; so Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) observed fast (on the day of 'Ashura), and gave orders that it should be observed. Sahih Muslim: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 2520 2. Narrators of the Hadith Now let’s dissect this issue in the light of the narrators of the Hadith: Ibn `Abbas: Abd Allah ibn Abbas or ′Abd Allah ibn al-′Abbas otherwise called (Ibn Abbas; Al-Habr; Al-Bahr; The Doctor; The Sea) was born c. 619 CE. He was the son of Al-‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, an uncle of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and a nephew of the Maymunah bint al-Harith, who later became Muhammad's wife. He was one of Muhammad's cousins and one of the early Qur'an scholars. Since Ibn Abbas was only approx. 3-4 years old (as our Prophet (SAW) migrated on 622 CE), it’s quite ironic that a child of such age experienced the event of Jewish fasting and can explain the whole event such accurately later on. Abu Musa: Abu-Musa Abd-Allah Ibn Qays al-Ash'ari, better known as Abu Musa al-Ashari (d.ca. 662 or 672) was a companion of Muhammad and an important figure in early Islamic history. He was at various times governor of Basra and Kufa and was involved in the early Muslim conquests of Persia. Abu Musa came originally from Zabid, region of Yemen, where his tribe, the Ashar, lived in the pre-Islamic period. He accepted Islam at Mecca prior to the hijra and returned to his native Yemen to propagate the faith. There was no news of him for more than a decade until following the conquest of Khaybar in 628 when he came to Muhammad in Medina with more than fifty converts from Yemen including his two brothers Abu Ruhm and Abu Burdah. Since Abu Musa returned in Khaybar on 628 CE, it can be seen that he was not also present during the Jewish Fasting issue. 3. Meaning of Ashura Although the term Ashura is considered as the 10th of Muharram, but according to the explanation of Arabic language scholar Ali-Ibn Al Athir (1160-1233), the word Ashura has two meanings, an old meaning and a new meaning. Ashura came from ‘Ashrah’ which means ten in Arabic, so according to the old meaning- the 10th day of any month is known as Ashura, and according to the new meaning- after the martyrdom of Hussain bin Ali (AS) the term Ashura refers to 10th day of Muharram month. So if for the sake of argument if we believe that the Jewish fasting was on Ashura, it’s not necessary that it was the 10th of Muharram. 4. Arabic Calendar VS Jewish Calendar It’s quite ironic that Jews of medina were following the Arabic calendar that time, whereas they had their own calendar. It’s assumed that the day they referred that time could be the 10th of Tishri or 15th of Nisan according to the Jewish calendar. 10th of Tishri in Judaism is known as YOM KEPOOR or Ayiam e Kaffara (Year of Attonment) was the date when Moses (AS) came back from mount Sinai and saw his followers worshiping the golden calf. And 15th of Nisan was the date when the Jews were saved from being drowned in Nile. Now let’s peep into the miscalculations of dates for the event: 1. If the event referred to 10th of Tishri, the only year that time when 10th Muharram and 10th Tishri collided, was on 40th Year of Hijrah. So it could not be the Year when Prophet (SAW) entered Medina. 2. If it was 15th of Nisan, then it should have been the 23rd of Ramadan of the Year of Hijrah, not 10th of Muharram. 3. Last but not the least, Prophet (SAW) entered Medina on Rabiul Awwal, not Muharram!! Considering the discussed facts we can conclude that the Hadith of Jewish fasting is a fabrication and should not be let supersede the greatness of the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (AS) and his holy family. Jazakullah Khairan.
  4. Hi, Just a quick question.. Can we apply sun screen cream on face while fasting for protecting face skin against heat as its Summer season ?? Can we apply gel on hair while fasting ?? Awaiting your responses.. Regards, Ali
  5. The Shia community in the Netherlands suddenly changed the calculation method of the prayer times (switching to the Islamic istitute of hamburg) and fajr is halfway through Ramadan at 2:00 am now (it would have been 3:11 on the same day with the old calculation method) So I wondered how long do you guys fast and where do you live. And I was questioning who do I have to follow cause according to the local (Shia) mosque fajr would still be at 3:11 but the majority of the Shia community agreed on the calculation method of hamburg .

  9. Hello! I REALLY need help finding this Nasheed, does anybody know what Nasheed this is? https://ok.ru/video/86764161556
  10. hello I'd like to ask a favour, someone knows a website (or which pages in the Quran talks about it) that has quranic verses about fasting, not only for ramadan, but for all fasts that the muslims go through during all year and if the quran has verses about the proper way for fasting and which are these fasts, why do muslims fast on those days, the meaning, etc... thank you if any can help me
  11. Actually the issue is not consensual between shia's scholars. there are some Maraje that believe you can do iftar at sunset like Sunnis and one of that Maraje was Ayatoallah Bahjat. in the other side we have the majority of Shia scholars that say the iftar time is about fifteen minutes later or Maghreb. Ayatoallah Sistani and Khamenei. so it depend on who are you following in the Maraje.
  12. Salam. My friend and I are debating whether Kaffarah fasting counts in Ramadan. Basically, if a person breaks an oath, and is not able to: free a slave / feed sixty poor / etc. just as Ramadan is arriving, then do his 3 consecutive fasts count? Regardless of Ramadan fasts being wajib/compulsory?
  13. http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=32 Harvard School of Public Health states that consuming fast food increases your risk of obesity-related conditions. Giving up fast food seems intimidating, as you can sacrifice both convenience and indulgence; however, eating healthful alternatives will improve your health, and eventually, your cravings for fast food will diminish. Breakfast fast-food breakfasts such as breakfast burritos, sausage and cheese sandwiches, syrup-soaked pancakes and oily waffles aren-t the way to start your day. Alternatives such as lettuce wraps, tofu scrambles, egg and toast and oatmeal pancakes are healthier choices to give your body energy and nutrition. Compare the 450 calories and 31 grams of fat in a fast-food biscuit with egg and bacon to the 130 calories and 5 grams of fat in a scramble with four egg whites and 1 ounce of cooked turkey bacon. Time’s often an issue for breakfast, but you can prepare many alternative breakfasts in advance and heat them during a busy morning. For example, make a batch of breakfast burritos from black beans, egg whites, chopped bell peppers and corn tortillas and freeze them individually wrapped. Alternately, have a smoothie made from fresh fruit, a sliced apple with peanut butter or strawberries with almond butter for an energy boost. Lunch fast-food lunches like cheeseburgers, french fries or fish and chips can cause fatigue rather than giving you energy. Alternatives such as baked sweet potato fries, tuna salad or a stuffed pita are much healthier. A fast-food double burger has more than 942 calories and 58 grams of fat; to compare, a 3-ounce turkey burger on a whole-wheat pita has 169 calories and 2 grams of fat. While it’s undeniably less indulgent, it’s far better for your health. Other lunch options include a butterhead lettuce and tomato salad with balsamic vinegar, tomato soup, steamed fish with spinach or a chicken breast lettuce wrap with avocado. If you need lunch to-go, bring it in an insulated lunch box with ice packs to keep your food cold or a thermos to keep soup warm. Dinner Fast-food dinners are not an ideal way to end your day. Instead of greasy pizza, create a homemade Margherita pizza, swap fried chicken for oven-baked chicken and have a salad with whole-grain bread instead of a deli sandwich. Other choices for dinner include homemade soup, vegetable stir-fry, steamed lean meat or whole-wheat pasta. Replacing two pieces of fast-food fried chicken, which has more than 431 calories and 26 grams of fat, with 3 ounces of chicken breast for less than 100 calories and around 2 grams of fat instantly makes dinner healthier. If you need dinner quickly, prepare a large batch of soup, salad or sandwich filling at the beginning of the week or use a slow cooker to prepare lean meats and stews while you’re away for the day. Snacks and Desserts Chips, french fries, popcorn chicken, pie, ice cream shakes and other unhealthy snacks and desserts do not nourish your body. Fresh fruit is an ideal replacement; it doubles as both a delicious snack and healthful dessert, and there’s multiple types from which to choose. Smoothies are excellent replacements for fast-food shakes. To compare, a large strawberry shake has more than 550 calories and 13 grams of fat; replace it with a smoothie made from 1 cup of plain, fat-free yogurt and 1 cup of fresh strawberries for 186 calories and 1 gram of fat. Fruit salads, fruit pudding made with silken tofu and fruit dipped in chocolate are other tasty dessert choices. For savory snacks, vegetables sticks, whole-grain crackers or roasted chickpeas are tasty choices.

  14. Bani Umayyah (Umayad) forced people to celebrate the day of Ashura (10th of Muharram) as a blessed day, and encouraged people to buy and store their annual food on that day and to fast that day as Sunnah, by fabricating traditions in this regard which were solely designed to overshadow and to cover up the great catastrophe of the slaughtering the household of Prophet (PBUH&HF). To make people believe that Ashura is a blessed day, day fabricated that it was in that day when Allah saved Bani Israel from Pharaoh. this is while Moses (as) and his companions were saved and passed the Nile river in the month of Rabiul-Awwal. They also invented that the repentance of Adam was accepted on that day, while it was accepted in the month of Zil-Hajjah. They say that it was the day that Jonah (Yunos) was saved from the body of fish and the ark of Noah was settled on earth while it was on the 18th of Zil-Hajjah. All those traditions were fabricated By Bani Umayyah to cover their crimes. But scientific research caught their different lies. Shukar al-Hamdolillah. Let us first read this fabricated tradition: First Version: Sahih Bukhari, Book 60, Volume 6, Hadith 202: Narrated Ibn Abbas: When the Prophet arrived at Medina, the Jews were observing the fast on 'Ashura' (10th of Muharram) and they said, "This is the day when Moses became victorious over Pharaoh," On that, the Prophet said to his companions, "You (Muslims) have more right to celebrate Moses' victory than they have, so observe the fast on this day." Second Version: Bukhari, Book 60, Volume 6, Hadith 31: Narrated Aisha: During the Pre-lslamic Period of ignorance the Quraish used to observe fasting on the day of 'Ashura', and the Prophet himself used to observe fasting on it (ashura) too. But when he came to Medina, he fasted on that day and ordered the Muslims to fast on it. When (the order of compulsory fasting in ) Ramadan was revealed, fasting in Ramadan became an obligation, and fasting on 'Ashura' was given up, and whoever wished to fast (on it) did so, and whoever did not wish to fast on it, did not fast. Post Mortem of this Fabricated TraditionIt is very difficult to tell a perfect lie. There are always “Contradictions” when you tell a lie. Same happened in this case where one paid fool of Bani Umayyah fabricated that Prophet (saw) started it due to Bani Israel, while other fool linked it to the Period of ignorance. We all know why we celebrate Eid-ul-Adha (day of sacrifice of Hadhrat Ismael), why we celebrate Ramadhan (Quran tells (Verse 2:185) that the month of Ramazan is that in which the Quran was revealed). But why then ‘Aisha was so much ignorant about the incident of Bani Israel & Moses? The tradition claims that Prophet & Sahaba were constantly observing the fast of ‘Ashura during full 10 years of Prophet’s life in Madina, so there is absolutely no logical reason as to why ‘Aisha was ignorant of this. Moreover, why was Prophet following the Custom of days of Ignorance? There was NO Islamic Calendar during Prophet (saw) era. But there was Arabic Calendar. It was the Era of Umar Ibn Khattab, where proposal came about Islamic Calendar. Ali Ibn Abi Talib recommended to start Islamic Calendar with the 1st of Muharram of the year when Prophet (saw) migrated to Madina. But on 1st of Muharram of Islamic Calendar, Prophet Muhammad (saw) was still in Mecca. All agree that Prophet (saw) migrated to Madina long after it in the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal. (After Muharram comes the month of “Saffar” and then the month of “Rabi-ul-Awwal”). (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 245: …. (when Prophet reached Madina) So all the Muslims rushed to their arms and received Allah's Apostle on the summit of Harra. The Prophet turned with them to the right and alighted at the quarters of Bani 'Amr bin 'Auf, and this was on Monday in the month of Rabi-ul-Awal.) Therefore, it was impossible that Prophet (saw) had seen Jews fasting on Ashura at his arrival to Madina. This proves this story to be totally fabricated one. Moreover, the modern scientific study of Jewish Scriptures also reveals that people who fabricated this tradition were telling a blatant lie. Do the Jews fast on the day when Bani Israel were saved by Allah? No, it is a blatant lie. Jews don’t have absolutely any Fasting day for this event. Here is the List of days when Jews Fast. http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Holidays/Fast_Days/fast_days.html The next lame excuse by Modern Apologists of this fabricated tradition is to claim that it refers to jewish “Yom Kippur” which happened on 10th of Tishri month of Jews. Once again, this claim is without any proof and totally wrong. First contradiction is this that the 10th of Tishri has nothing to do with saving of Bani Israel from Pharoah, but it is the day the children of Israel paid atonement for worshipping the calf when Prophet Moses and some companions went to Mount Sinai. As a result of this incident, the Jews fast on the 10t of Tishri. Secondly, scientific research shows that 10th Tishri was months away from 10th Muharram of 1st Islamic Hijri year. Here are two Scientific Tools for you to calculate it yourself. Gregorian-Hijri Dates Converter (Online Link) Hebrew Date Converter (Online Link) * 10th Muharram of 1st Islamic Hijri year is equivalent to 25 July 622 C.E. (+ One day Error) [link] * 10th of Tishri, 4383 of Jewish Calendar is equivalent to 23 September 622 C.E. (+10 days error) [link] As you can see both of them months away with each other and there is no chance that they correspond to each other in that year. The Apologists of this fabricated Tradition further make a lame excuse that perhaps Prophet (saw) didn’t see Jews in the first year of his arrival, but in later coming years. But this excuse is also contradicting the facts. Fact is this that Fast of Ramadhan became obligatory in 2nd year after migration (See Tafsir of Verse 2:185 where all Muffasirrin of Quran agree upon it that this verse about Ramadhan fasting was revealed in year 2 A.H.). But the only time the 10th of Tishri corresponded to the 10th of Muharram was in the 29th year after Hijra (i.e. not even in life Time of Prophet Muhammad (saw)). Another problem with 10th Tishri assumption is this that the month in which God delivered the Israelites from Pharaoh was month of Abib (i.e. modern Nissan), as the Bible clearly says: "Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night." (Deut., 16:1). And it is also impossible that month of Abib corresponded with Month of Muharram of 1st or 2nd Year of Islamic Hijri Calendar. * 10th Muharram of 1st Islamic Hijri year is equivalent to 25 July 622 C.E. (1 day error) [link] * 10th of Abib, 4382 of Jewish Calendar is equivalent to 30 March 622 C.E. (10 days error) [link] You can see that there is the difference of months between them and in whole remaining life of Prophet (saw) in Madina, they never corresponded with each other. Note: Moreover, 10th of Abib (Nissan) is not even the day when Bani Israel departed from Egypt. Rather, the savior of the children of Israel occurred on the 15th of Nissan in the Jewish calendar and the 15th of Nissan in the 1st year of Hijra corresponded to the 23rd of Ramadan. Lame Excuse: The Jewish Calendar could have been “distorted” (Tehrif) after the death of Prophet Muhammad (saw) and thus Jewish Calendar is not reliable. Answer: No doubt that there were distortions in the “normal” Jewish scriptures. But as far as specifically the “Jewish Calendar” & the “Custom of Fasting” is concerned, then NO distortion has taken place in them after the advent of Islam, but both the Jewish Calendar & the Custom of Fasting stayed the same since advent of Islam. Actually they stayed same “centuries” before Islam. Here one Link about Jewish Calendar and another Link about short history of “Custom of Fasting”, while as far as Jewish Calendar is concerned, then there is absolutely no doubt that Jews were using this same Calendar centuries before Prophet Muhammad (saw). Therefore, if anyone claims that the “Jewish Calendar” and the “Custom of Fasting” have been distorted after 1st Hijri of Islamic Calendar, then such person is a plain stupid. The Truth: 10th of Muharram is a day of “sorrow” and “great calamities” for Jews too Subhan Allah! The truth is this that 10th of Muharram of 1st Hijri was not the day of “joy” for the Jews. But a big Surprise, that was the day of great calamities and sorrow for Jews too. “Tisha B'Av” is also a fasting day of Jews on 9th of the Jewish month Av. Strange thing is this that this Tisha B'Av corresponded perfectly to the 10th of Muharram of 1st & 2nd Hijri of Islamic Calendar. 1. 10th muharram of muslim is equivalent to Sunday 25 July 622 C.E. (+1 day error according to Islamic Software maker). (Link). 2. 9th of Av, 4382 of jewish Calendar is equivalent to Sunday 25 July 622 C.E (Link). Tisha B'Av: The “Saddest day in Jewish History” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tisha_B%27Av The fast commemorates the destruction of both the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date. Although primarily meant to commemorate the destruction of the Temples, it is also considered appropriate to commemorate other Jewish tragedies that occurred on this day, most notably the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, one of the concluding events of the Iberian Reconquista. Accordingly, the day has been called the "saddest day in Jewish history"..... Note: Another very strange thing is this that Jeremiah (see Jer. 52:12–13) dates the destruction of the First Temple to the tenth of Av (52:12ff.), while there is, however, no biblical witness for the ninth. Subhan Allah! Allah is the greatest. [Quran 3:54] But they (the unbelievers) contrived a plot, and God did the like; and God's plan is the best. Was Prophet sad upon killing of Hussain or happy like Bani Umayyah & Present day Nasibies? O Muslims! Do you remember what your Prophet (saw) advised you about his family (Ahl al-Bayt)? Following tradition of Sahih Muslim is telling that Prophet (saw) advised the Ummah "3 Times" to look how they behave with his Ahl al-Bayt after him. Sahih Muslim, Kitab fada'il al-Sahabah: O people, I am only a human being and I am about to respond to the messenger of my Lord [i.e. the call of death]. I am leaving behind Two Precious Things (Thaqalayn) among you. The first of the two is the Book of Allah. In it is guidance and light. So get hold of the Book of Allah and adhere to it." (The narrator, Zayd ibn al-Arqam said: Then he urged and motivated (us) regarding the Book of Allah . Then he said), "And my Ahl al-Bayt (family). I urge you to remember Allah regarding my Ahl al-Bayt. I urge you to remember Allah regarding my Ahl al-Bayt. I urge you to remember Allah regarding my Ahl al-Bayt. But O Muslims! Just tell even after this advice of "3 times" still what happened to the beloved grandson Hussain of Prophet? Sunnan Ibn Majah, Kitab-ul-Fitn (Online Link for Original Arabic Version): Narrated by Alqamah from Abdullah bin Masood: One day we were sitting with Holy Prophet(s) when some children from the house of Bani Hashim came there. When the Holy Prophet(s) saw them, tears welled up in his eyes and he became pale. Ibn Masood said that he told the Holy Prophet(s) "Your face reflects anxiety".The Holy Prophet(s) stated:"Exalted God has granted us,the Ahlulbait, Hereafter instead of worldly pleasure. After me, soon my Ahlulbait will face calamity, hardship and misery till people having black flags will rise from East and seek justice,which will be denied them.They will wage war,they will be supported and will be given what they were demanding.They will not accept until it is handed over to one from our Ahlulbait (i.e. Mahdi) .He will fill the earth with justice as it was filled with injustice. Whoever amongst you is alive at that period, should try to reach them even if he has to tread on ince in that pursuit." (al-Sanadi wrote in commentary of Ibn Majah that this same tradition has also been recorded in Mustadrak of al-Hakim through another chain of Umar bin Qais -- Hakam --I braheem) Saudi Mufti, Al-Albaani records a ‘Sahih’ Hadith: Gabriel came to me and informed me that my Ummah will kill my son Hussain. I asked: ‘This Hussian?’. He (s) replied: ‘Yes’ he then brought me some of its soil that was red. Narrated by Umm al-Fadhal bint al-Harith that she went to the Holy Prophet (s) and said: ‘O Prophet (s), I have seen an unclear dream tonight’. He (s) asked: ‘What is it?’ She replied: ‘I saw that as if a part of your body was cut off from you and was placed upon my chest’. He (s) said: ‘You have seen something good. Inshallah Fatimah will bear a baby boy and he will be upon your chest.’ So Fatima gave birth to Hussain and he was on my chest as the Prophet (s) had notified me. On one day I went to the Holy Prophet (s) and put Hussain on his chest then he turned his face to the side and I witnessed his (s) eyes flowing with tears. I asked: “Prophet of Allah (s), may parents be sacrificed for you, what is wrong?” he (s) then mentioned it (the above hadith). Silsilah Al-Ahadith Al-Sahiyah, Volume 2 page 462 Hadith 821 Witness of Ibn Abbas about mourning of Prophet for Hussain: حدثنا عبد الله حدثني أبي ثنا عبد الرحمن ثنا حماد بن سلمة عن عمار بن أبي عمار عن ابن عباس قال رأيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في المنام بنصف النهار أشعث أغبر معه قارورة فيها دم يلتقطه أو يتتبع فيها شيئا قال قلت يا رسول الله ما هذا قال دم الحسين وأصحابه لم أزل أتتبعه منذ اليوم .قال عمار فحفظنا ذلك اليوم فوجدنا قتل ذلك اليوم Translation: “Abdullah bin Abbas narrates that he saw holy prophet (saw) while sleeping in afternoon, his hair were scattered, and full of dust, and he had a bottle filled with blood; I asked him: My parents be sacrificed for you, what is this? He replied: this is the blood of Hussain and his companions, I have been collecting it since day time. Narrator said that when we calculated, it was the day Hussain embraced martyrdom”.

  15. Sallam I have about 6 Kaffara to pay, so feed 60 people x 6 Can I just feed 1 person for 60 days or do I have to feed 60 different people. For example, if I can feed a few people multiple times then I can just send the money to my uncle and his family in Afghanistan, the money equal to 60 meals x 6. or do I have to find 60 different people and feed them only once. I prefer sending money to my uncles, and it is easier for me, much easier. Please help, I follow Sistani btw. shukran
  16. I wonder why there exist seemingly "strong" evidence (with virtues) on fasting on Ashoora (10th MUH) in the Sunni hadeeths. I wonder is it because: 1) they are fabrications, or 2) there was a clear command to keep fast but later "abrogated" / "rescinded"
  17. I was reading things online and I am confused about travelling rules and fasting during the month of Ramadhan. Last Monday, I left my house at 10:30am (after fajr) to reach my parents' house around 1:15pm (after zhur), which is about 145 km (90 miles) away from my house. I left my parents' house Tuesday afternoon at 5pm to reach my house at about 7pm. I fasted on both Monday and Tuesday. When I'm at my parents' house, I always offer full prayers. Were my fasts valid or do I have to make them up? What is the limit (km/mi) for it to be considered a travel? Am I supposed to offer shortened prayers when i go to my parents'? Jazakallah Khairan for your answers! (wasalam)
  18. Salam alejkum, Basically I will be going on holiday after ramadan has started, I will be travelling to a country within Europe so the time difference will only be an hour and the journey itself will be 12 hours. I was wondering whether my fast would be valid if I fasted during travelling as I would be more than able to do so. JazakAllah.
