  1. Al-Salam Alaykum, My name is Ali and I live in Australia and I have four questions regarding the fatwa on eating meat (cow/chicken/lamb/goat) provided in the Australian kitchens, according to Ayatollah Alozma Jannaati: 1. Is it permissible to eat meats (cow/chicken/lamb/goat) from Christian restaurants despite the presence of other numerous halal restaurants close-by? Or is it only strictly permissible to eat when no halal food is present? 2. Despite the fact that most people that live in Australia are Christians, not all restaurants owned by Australians are Christians. So, when wanting to eat from a large fast-food chain in Australia (such as McDonald's) can I assume that the meats are from Christian sources (thereby making it permissible for me to eat) even though I don't know where they are actually from as they may be Atheist, Hindu or Buddhist? I think that going up to the counter to ask whether or not their meat source is from a Christian is weird (and most likely would not be given an answer). 3. If a large fast-food chain such as McDonald's is serving me a chicken burger (irrespective of being Islamically-slaughtered or not) they may cook pig products (e.g. bacon) on the same grill. Does that make the chicken burger harram? 4. Do I have to say Bismillah before consuming the 'nonislamically-slaughtered' meal? Thank you very much for giving me from your time. Jazakom Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) khair al Jazaa Al-Salam Alaukum
  2. Exclusive: Iran poised to start big feed grain imports (Reuters) - Iran's government is expected to start buying hundreds of thousands of tonnes of feed grains as western sanctions are causing enormous disruption to the financing of Iran's imports, traders said on Thursday. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/12/us-grain-iran-sanctions-idUSBRE83B0UT20120412?feedType=RSS&feedName=Iran&virtualBrandChannel=10209&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&dlvrit=59365 With inflation at 21.5%, and comments from such websites as Khabar Online complaining about the cost of milk and meat (50% price hikes in some areas), conservative media such as Farda and Baztab Emrooz are criticizing Ahmadinejad for making "unrealistic" claims (such as the claim that 1.6 million jobs were created in the last year. http://www.digarban.com/node/6017
  3. So what are the teachings in terms of drinking? Standing to drink is more preferable or sitting? Or both ok? Sunnis quote Imam Ali a.s. quote that in bukhari he drank water from left over water of Wuzu n he drank that standing saying that people in kufa seem to not know that standing to drink water is sunnah n that's how rasul saw did it n he showed them how. How about eating? Some had said must drink water sitting Some say can stand n drink Some say dont breath into the water. Some say totally hold your breath n drink the cup of water in 3 parts. Thoughts?

    Take out

    Salam Alaykum i know it's obviously not halal to eat meat and stuff out but what about eating other stuff from restaurants that arent strictly halal? For example if I have a group of friends or colleagues invite me to go with them to somewhere like Olive Garden...would it be okay for me to eat the veg. menu?Or non meat meals? What about something like a coffee place? Pizzerias? (I already avoid those)...I'm really confused... do you guys eat out or avoid non Muslim places altogether?
  7. Salam. I was reading the ingredients of a product and one of them was vanillin. I contacted the company who manufactures the product to investigate whether the vanillin was extracted using alcohol or not, and this was the answer: "The vanillin in our products is derived from lignin. While the vanillin does originally contain alcohol, there is no alcohol in the finished product." After that, I contacted them again because I wanted to know if the vanillin originally contains ethyl alcohol, and this was the answer: "While ethanol is used in the production process, there is no ethanol or ethyl alcohol in the final product. I regret to inform you that the details of our production process are proprietary." I want to know, since there is no alcohol in the final product, is it Halal to eat it? Or is it haram because alcohol was used in the production process? Thank you in advance.
  8. Salam. First of all I apologize for my bad english. I'm writing this post because I don't know what else to do. Yesterday muslim friends invited me and my family to their house for dinner. I take every precaution I can to avoid eating or drinking something that may contain alcohol. Someone served me food in a plate where there were traces of vinegar (and I knew it), but I don't know if this vinegar has alcohol in it, as many vinegars has today. When this person gave me the plate, I thought I shouldn't eat it because I didn't know if the vinegar has alcohol, but anyways I ended eating the food. I know vinegar is halal, but I've read that some vinegar has traces of alcohol (even extra alcohol added) in it and this types of vinegar are haram. Now I'm feeling very very very guilty, I feel like I shouldn't eat that because I wasn't sure about the alcohol. If I ate any tiny amount of alcohol my prayers and duas won't be accepted for 40 days. I feel very sad because tomorrow begins the month Ramadan, and I've been waiting for laylatul qadr for many weeks mostly because I have a very special request that I wanted to do dua for. The month of Ramadan is the month where prayers and duas are accepted, and now my prayers won't be accepted. I don't know what to do, I was waiting for this month and now I ruined it just few days before it begins. I want to know if I commited any sin, and if I didn't, how can I get rid off this thoughts? I really want to do my personal prayers and duas in this blessed month and I want them to be accepted, but I ruined it. 1) I did not eat anything with vinegar to be sure I don't let any alcohol enter my body, but the plate where my food was served had traces of it. In case the vinegar had extra alcohol in it, did I commit a sin because I did not investigate before eating from the plate? The reason I feel guilty is because it was not fully unintentionally. Before eating I thought it could have alcohol and should not eat from that plate, but I did not care because lately I'm being very obsessed about every food. 2) If one doubts if the food has alcohol and still eats it, the rule of 40 days still applies? I wan't to know if my prayers won't be accepted in Ramadan because of what I did yesterday I'm sorry for the long post and for repeating the same thing over and over, but I feel very sad and disappointed with myself. Please, if someone can help I would appreciate it so so so much. I know my post may be silly, but this all thing about the food is driving me crazy. I try to avoid even chocolates, cakes and any dessert because they have vanilla in it and I don't know if the vanilla they use has alcohol in it. I reached the stage where I avoid even the bread because I think brewer's yeast is haram and I'm not sure if they use baker's yeast or brewer's yeast to make the bread.
  9. So often times a planned meal ends up costing lots of money, because of market prices on the goods. I have been working with goods that are on sale, or marked down in local groceries, often times making a 20$ meal into a 5-10$ meal. I don't really measure things out either, so the actual results may vary, I suppose. Home Made Cream of Mushroom: 2 package of sliced baby porta bellas 1 onion 1 head of garlic 1 package of assorted sweet peppers 1 package (small) of uncut whole baby carrots x flour x milk Cajun seasoning Black pepper Chili peppers or jalapeno peppers No Salt (one can use cream I suppose, but it won't look like the photo) Extra virgin olive oil Add a little extra virgin olive oil to a deep pan, this will make a lot of food, so something that can hold a stir fry is appropriate. Throw in the mushrooms and carrots, and set heat to low on the pan. Cut the onion and process or cut the garlic so they can start the carmalizing (uh, wordsmith lol) process. Cut all the sweet peppers as desired, I like bigger chunks. Once the carrots have softened half through, and the garlic has "disapeared" add in flour and stir, so that all the veggies are covered in flour. Pour in Milk to make a gravy consistency. Add more milk and flour until you have a thick paste binding all the veggies, water down with milk until it is easy to consume/serve. Real Heavy Cream is what companies like Campbell's uses; I'm in the midwest of the US, where biscuits and gravy are a staple, so using flour and milk (part of the gravy if not all of it) gives it a comfort take of the soup for me and my family. My new father from India loves this particular dish. You can use real salt, but because my mother has issues with sodium, my family uses No-Salt which contains no sodium. NOTE: I am sorry, I thought I had a photo of this dish, but it's gone or something, or was never photographed. I was certain I had shown it to someone this year, boggling. It comes out sort of grey, because the flour and milk and all the veggie oils kind remain colorless. If that is bothersome, some hot sauce will change that

  11. Al Salamu Alaikum, I'm 16 years old, I'm a foreigner, my problem is stupid, others have it worse - but I am struggling and I don't have anyone that can help me. A few years back, when I was around 12/13 years old, I found myself barely eating anything and when I did I'd vomit it. I always felt like a stranger, and I'd look at the people around me and see that they were capable of enjoying food, cable of not counting calories, of not breaking down at the sight of their reflection, of not starving to feel happy, of not crying all day, and of socialising. So, in an effort to be 'normal' and to show my gratitude to Allah for providing me with enough food, I started eating. But the guilt that came with eating ripped me apart, and then I took it to extremes: I started binge eating. Somehow somewhere among the lines, I learned to accept my body and I tried to stop binge eating by going to the gym and eating healthily. I made progress. I learned to write, draw, photograph, and exercise to express my thoughts and feelings. However, starving, vomiting and self harming, as irrational as this sounds, comfort me more than anything - and I am stuck. I've read online that vomiting releases endorphins, chemicals which make you feel good. I've read about the damages vomiting causes to my body but I don't think that the damage I cause is great enough to kill me so I should be fine. Also, when I self harm I am careful not to cut too deep. I do realise that I do not have the right to damage my body, but the damage I cause is temporary and minimal as even the scars fade with time. I'm an only child. When I was younger I reached out for my parents so that they can help me, but then I told them I stopped doing the things mentioned above because they cannot deal with it; it breaks them. I'm on my own. At the moment, I can do most of the things the 'normal' people do (enjoy my food..etc.) but I still feel fat. I believe in Allah, in his mercy, and I'm content with the life he has chosen for me. Question is, do I even have a problem? Is there an explanation to what I've been doing? Is it a choice? Is it a phase? Am I just another attention seeking teenager? Please advise me. Criticise me if you have to; I want to change.
  12. Salam, I am curious if there is any Marja that permits the eating of Lobster and Crab. Maraja that classify Lobster and Crab as Makhrooh are mentionable as well. I know Ayatollah Sistani and Khamenai say Lobster and Crab is haram. I am looking for Maraja that say otherwise.

    Cats

    Salam's brothers and sisters, I own a cat pet which lives indoors and often goes outside, however she does have a litter box and she manages to litter in that when she can. I feed her canned and dry food, now the food i that i give her is the usual canned food you buy from the department stores they are not halal certified. They usually come in beef, chicken or fish. The dry food comes in also different flavors and types that are available to the general public. My question is that if i feed my lunch then say after 5 mins now, as you no the nature of the cat is to usually lick her self or self cleaning as they say many times during the day, she would lick lick lick, so my question is if i touch her hair for example with my wet hands, are my hands now najis and whatever it touches, or if my cat licks her legs and then goes outside after it has rained making her feet also wet would it be in the state of najasat? i would like if someone could answer it.

    Last Meal

    If God forbid you were having your last meal, what would it be and why? Add pics too (of the food, not you).
  15. Eat something interesting or tasty? Share pics with your fellow ShiaChatters. To my non-muslims Chatters, please refrain from alcohol & pork-related pics. No advertising please
  16. So I have consuming sugar. Its been 2 days I haven't consumed anything with sugar. Life is so tough without sugar. Have you guys ever tried no sugar or no carb diet?
  17. I live in US and i used to eat pretty much all kind of chips and candies and jellos. Now, i try to avoid gelatin and all the products which could have any enzymes or fats derived from animal. For instance, I can't eat all the tasty chips and candies because they enzymes or gelatin in them or they don't have U sign on the packing. Many cosmetic products use animal fat and i don't know what type or animal they are using. Also, many vitamins have gelatin in them. For now i am trying to follow these rules i got from muslim consumer group website The word " Vegetable" is mentioned before or in parenthesis for fat based ingredients statement of a food product; for example vegetable Mono and Diglyceride. If a Halal symbol such as "H" in triangle or kosher symbol such as U, UD, V, CRC, KMH, COR, K or KD appear on the package (without wine, alcohol, all types of gelatin, L-Cysteine from human hair), it means that the fat based ingredient is obtained from vegetable fat. Inquiry with the food manufacturer is another way of identifying them. The purpose is to verify that the ingredients are Halal or kosher certified and also to inquire about any haram processing aid ingredients which are not mentioned in the ingredients list. Sometimes manufacturer uses Halal or kosher certified ingredients without finished product being Halal or kosher certified, breads and buns are the best example. Some manufacturer have Halal or kosher certified products but prefer not to have Halal or kosher symbol on their products. But i would like to know what is ruling of shia marjas on this issue????
  18. hello, I'd like to know how to mention Allah in the food, just by saying Bismillah before eating is enough? I read you should say Bismillah at the end too.
  19. Salam alaykum! I hope you all are doing well. A hindu friend is preparing a meal for us tonight. This food contains chicken bought from a halal place, but she is touching the food with wet hands (before being cooked). Am I allowed to eat this food as a shia muslim? Since she is going to boil the food later, doesn't that remove the effect of being touched by a kafir? I honestly do not know the way out; I can't think of any excuse to prevent myself from eating her food. Since she is really looking forward to this, I might hurt her sentiments. I would really appreciate a prompt response. Jazakallah
  20. Asalamu Alaikum, I have always been told that pigs, carnivores, and insects are things that we, as Muslims, are forbidden to eat yet when my biology professor told me that pork was only banned during the rise of Christianity and Islam since it wasn't simply cooked well enough. Today you can eat pork just fine as do millions of people. When I told my mother about this she believed me but she told me that the other reason as to why we don't eat pork, carnivores or insects is since we would get the characteristics of those creatures when we eat them. Such as a pig, who doesn't mind if its companion is sleeping with another pig, eating carnivores would make us more aggressive, and that we should eat camel meat since its very protective of its mates. I'm still not sure if this is really true or not since many people eat insects in the far east and they seem to be doing practically well for themselves. They don't see it as gross because they got used to it over time and integrated it into their culture. When I told her that she tried to change the subject. I hope some one can give me an answer to this since it seems to cause no trouble to the human body or psyche if we eat any type of animal or insect.
  21. Salam. What's the best thing to do in your opinion regarding breaking iftar before or after prayers? I thought of doing it after prayers, because otherwise I would lose my concentration (think about the food), and I would also like to read duas etc. which would take like, 15 min extra, and I would delay the sitting with my family. But then we have the talk about "praying on time". Hm.. I don't know what I exactly should do. Maybe pray maghrib first, short duas, and then eat, and then pray again. But, what do you do?
  22. Is there a minimum amount of food that one must eat every night after fasting the day? Or can you just go with a date?
  23. I hope you are all doing well! ^_^ I made this a few days ago and I loved it so much I ate it for both breakfast and dinner! I personally don't like cheese very much and when I thought of making grilled cheese, it sounded quite gross to me, but I added a few extras in it and it turned out amazing! It only takes 6 minutes to cook and I'm a huge fan of meals that cook quickly! :wub: If any of you try making it, let me know what you think or how you tweaked it! :) Ingredients: -Mayonnaise -Pepper Jack cheese -Green onions -Spicy turkey sausage -Cabbage -Mozzarella cheese -2 slices of white bread Procedure: -Lay out slices of bread and add ingredients onto it! I used the order above. -In a flat pan, add a drop of oil and move around pan for it to spread. -Press sandwich onto pan and cover on Medium to High heat for 2-3 minutes. -Flip over sandwich, press down with flat spatula and cover for another 2-3 minutes. -Enjoy! :)
  24. (bismillah) Salam. Hi, everyone. I'm learning how to cook and I thought I'd start with the basics. I already know how to other stuff like paratha, eggs, chicken and even biryani all on my own. But what I don't know is how to make bread the way we make it in the subcontinent. The first thing's first. What's the difference between Roti and Chapati? Are they simply different names for the same thing? Are they prepared any differently from each other? And if any of you could be kind enough to post a recipe for each of them, I'd be really grateful. Thanks! Take care. Mithrandir.
  25. My mom always refers me as her bad son, because I like restaurant food more than home cooked meals.. Every night she calls me and ask me about my plans that where am I going to have lunch; home or restaurant... Is that an inappropriate thing to get your meal from restaurant/hotel?
