  1. Okay, so here we go evryone on here finna hate me after this bcuz ik what the sc community is like but im gnna say this anyway IN the west, we have interest. In all (almost) every. single. transaction. now, many people FAIL to understand. that in the west living without interest is PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS you wish to live as a FAQIR or sumthin and idk about u but i sure as Hell DONT if something is necessary for us to function in society then whats the issue. Like be fr. I AM AWARE that riba is usury and haram and terrible I KNOW! HOWEVER, living in the west IT IS NECESSARY AND UNAVOIDABLE and as we know in islam if something exists which we legit cannot function without due to the fact that the entire society and nation is built upon it in an unavoidable fashion. such thing is permissible, this is obvious cuz allah doesnt want us going to live as malangs (ascetics) in the streets or countryside LOL. I just simply cant fathom how some people will still say "loans are haram" or "mortgage is haram" or "working in banking deals "or"credit card with interest are haram"etc like mate use ur brain??? Just cuz YOU are for some reason okay with living so "humbly" as to not engage in ANY such thing an not move out ur moms basement or live in a 1 bed rent or a homless shelter doesnt mean everyone else has to bruv. OR just cuz u LIVE in a muslim nation DOESNT MEAN we all do live in nations without interest in every part of life. cuz buddy we LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHERE IT IS BRUV BEFORE someone says "oh u can take loans or pay interest on banking deals at work or pay interest on credit cards IF YOU DO IT with the INTENTION of not paying it back and as a transaction without return even if u do pay it back" this is frankly NONSENSE im sorry! BE HONEST BE FOR REAL MATE purposely changing ur NIYYAH to pretend ur not gonna pay it back then the banks like pay it back and ur like "oh wow i had totally not intended to but now im being forced oh no aaaaa guess i gotta pay the interest" meanwhile u knew DAMN WELL that u were gonna pay it back makes ZERO ZERO SENSE!! THINK ABOUT IT this is the equivalent of me picking up alcohol and pretendining i dont know its alcoholic drink it and say oh I DIDNT KNOW liike be fr it doesnt make any sense its simple in the west, WE HAVE TO PAY AND RECIEVE interest!!! YOU KNOW IT AND SO DO I! so stop avoiding the blatant truth buddy. i personally for any living in the west living BELIEVE TAKING A LOAN ISNT HARAM YOU NEED THEM (UNLESS ITS FOR SOMETHING DUMB LIKE IDK A LOAN FOR A SHIRT OR SMTH LOL ) CREDIT CARDS WITH INTERST ARENT HARAM because; 1) ur paying the money to the bank not one single person its an entitiy who you dont know personally at all an unknown owner malik al majhul i think is what its called 2) working in banking with interst isnt haram IN THE WEST not everywhere of course. its just a job ur gonna deal in the interest no matter what and its a way of earning money BIGGEST POINT HERE READ THE WHOLE THING DONT RAGE it is completley NORMAL and fully ACCEPTED almost compulsory to deal with interst in the WEST therefore due to its complete necessitty its not HARAM obviously living in a muslim nation for example is a diff story. so imma become a banker without ppl telling me im a kaffir for it and imma take a loan OR GET AN AMEX card to BUILD A GOOD CREDIT SCORE AND PAY FOR THINGS I CANT INSTANTLY AFFORD and build a credit score for a rainy day or to buy a nice house or car one day. If i need to take a loan for car house education investment or invest in bonds options forex etfs futures stocks crypto etc i see no problem in this. FURTHERMORE MANY MANY SCHOLARS AGREE THAT THE INTEREST WE HAVE TODAY IN THE WEST IS NOT THE RIBA / USURY THAT IS REFEREED TO IN THE QURAN / HADITH!!!! HOWEVER, if I ever move to a muslim nation insha'allah then yes its a different story WARNING: IM TALKING ABOUT IN REGARDS TO GIVING AND RECIEVING INTERST IN NON MUSLIM NATIONS WHERE IT IS NORMAL AND NOT SEEN AS USURY IM NOT SAYING ITS UNIVERSALLY OKAY I WOULD NEVER SAY SUCH THINGS! AND IM TALKING ABOUT DEALING WITH A NON MUSLIM BANK. SO LIL DISCLAIMER

    Tattooing

    As-Salamu Alaykum. ***I am not trying to spark debate about whether or not tattoos are permissible. Please debate that somewhere else.*** I want to get a tattoo of my father's name. He has the most common name in the world though, named after the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). However, it is spelled differently. I am wondering if it is OK to get his name tattooed on my body in Arabic calligraphy. The reason I am asking is because I would definitely never get a tattoo of something holy or religious. The tattoo would be for my father, not for the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). Thank you.
  3. Dear brothers’ and sisters’, My question is, is it haram if I listen to things I want to archive in the future while I sleep so my subconscious mind can note down all of it for the next morning for example? I don’t know if people can reconstruct what I said so here is the link to the video that inspired me. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=X_MDb0HzFE0&pp=ygUhcHJvZ3JhbSB5b3VyIG1pbmQgd2hpbGUgeW91IHNsZWVw Thanks for you answers.
  4. Assalamualaikum. I've been watching self-improvement content but not taking any action on it for a long time. I watch Hamza, Captain Sinbad, Tim Ferriss, Dan Koe, Alex Hormozi, Jordan Peterson and Chris Williamson. I've also read over 40 books on self-improvement, some of which suggested haram practices which I didn't engage in that would supposedly get me results in a particular pursuit. I've read books on relationships, quitting vices, psychology, fitness, habit formation, improving your mental health, making tough decisions and mental toughness. Mentally, I have gotten stronger from reading these books. I have a lot of discipline now outside of one or two haram vices that I'm trying to quit. I have been inspired by these content creators to pursue entrepreneurship and I've found philosophical wisdom that I can apply to any situation to maintain a positive outlook on life. I've became an optimist thanks to these videos, but I'm not being grateful to Allah. I watched a couple of videos today; one of them called Self-Improvement idolatry, the other claimed that it ruined his relationship with Allah. I could barely sit through both videos because I have a greater purpose with self-improvement, which is providing value to my family. It's providing value to my community. I wouldn't have found out how to without self-improvement, or is that a limiting belief because those videos have shown me how low my iman is? I don't believe that I can live a purposeful life without those books and videos. I feel addicted to self-improvement and that addiction has left me feeling kind of empty. I felt empty anyway. Did Allah lead me to Islam, or did self-improvement lead me there? I have no idea. You're arguing with something nebulous that most people can't see. I feel as though Islam promotes an external locus of control, meaning that it promotes giving in completely to circumstance. Admitting that improving your life is hopeless when you weren't the one that created yourself. You act as though you can create yourself, when it's Allah who created you and you're just trying to metaphorically draw yourself a new face. I'm scared of believing in Allah 100%, meaning that my last Shahadah was probably invalid inshallah. I don't want to give up my internal locus of control, my self-belief, unless there's a how to guide which gives convincing evidence by contrasting facts about mammals. I'm stuck in this dunya. Help.

    Is chess haram

    I found myself very fond of the game of chess as a kid practicing honing my skills it was a good hobby I had for a while until my dad informed me that chess is forbidden in our relegion which got me really confused chess is in no means a gambling game nor has it ever been used for that and it keeps your mind in check and helps you relax why is it forbidden then? I also heard that chess was used by Yazid after the battle of Karbala which to me sounded like nonsense why should we forbid something just because a certain person we despise did it? The other argument I've seen was that chess is a waste of time and can stop you from praying the 5 daily prayers with that being said doesn't that logic apply to everything entertainment wise? We shouldn't forbid chess for these weird reasons I know that chess is practiced normally in Iran but why is it haram in Our Sistani Sect?
  6. Salam alaikum,i wanted to ask if subliminals are Haram?I've been struggling for a long time now and I want to use a weight loss subliminal on YouTube.if it's not Haram can anyone recommend a halal subliminal channel?Please tell me and thank you.
  7. Salam alaikum,i wanted to ask if online friends are haram.Like i added her on accident actually, but now me and her are friends(I'm a girl).i only told her my name and i didn't tell her my age/what school i go to/where i live specifically.We just talk about life and problems and cats.I still pray regularly and it does not take me away from Allah bc if it would,i would'nt be friends with her.Please answer i really need to know.
  8. Why would one get punished for doing something that harms them? For example, if I masturbate or watch pornography, I am not harming my friends or anyone besides me, I know it is bad for me and I know the side effects of it, why would I still get punished even though I am okay with what it does to me? I get that if I kill someone or anything that harms someone else I deserve to get punished. But a lot of things harm one self and no one else, so why get punished for something that I know harms me and I am okay with it harming me? "It's is haram because it harms you". I get that, I know it is haram and harms me, but I am okay with it harming me, why would I get punished for it even though I am okay with it harming me?
  9. Is It Permissible For A Man To Wear Earrings?
  10. Aslamun Alaiykum brothers and sisters I am wondering what is happening to the shias these days, especially in India. The weddings are full of haram. All rules are being relaxed. No one caring about hijab, music playing, extravagance. Our weddings are also full of hindu inspired customs (like shoe stealing etc. ). On top of this the parents force us to attend such gatherings. And if you try to protest you are dragged into fruitless arguments. Concept of na mehram has dissappeared. Mixed interactions in name of 'family'. High expenditures are a norm. The only Islamic thing left about weddings is the haditn e kisa, nikah and a few mankabat. If you try to follow rules , you are seen as extremist 'mullah' . WLot of food is being wasted while there are so many starving Muslims in the world. I don't know where we are going. At this rate we would end up becoming like christians and jews . I am feeling very guilty of being involved in such sinful activities. Any thoughts about this?
  11. Do Shias think wearingred clothes is haram? Sunnis think so
  12. Salam everyone, I am a teenager and I do TikTok videos, I started making some money and since I wasn't old enough to get paid I lied and used my sister ID and age inorder to start getting payed. I made a good amount of money then later on got banned. With that money so far I have only bought a book and then started questioning if my money is halal. Since I lied in order to get the money is that money haram now? or maybe it is haram because some say that TikTok is a haram platform it self? Now if the money is haram what would I do with the remaining amount and what should I do with the book I bought with it? Any answer helps, Thank you.
  13. I have a question, is it haram to do the thing that Christians do when they do the cross on their chest? I have seen a few Shias do it on social media to show that we don't have a problem with christians and stuff but is it haram to do it? If you don't know what I am talking about I am talking its the thing where they touch their left shoulder then their right then their forehead.
  14. It is permissible to eat food from a restaurant in the west that serves HALAL meat but also serves NON-HALAL meat too at the same time? The restaurant has advised that their chefs are mindful of the HALAL and NON-HALAL meat not cross contaminating? Can someone direct me to a page or a marja that can answer this question?
  15. I know a lot of people that cheat on there taxes. Many people justify it as being ok because everyone else does it and its not fair for they save money and the people that are honest get screwed. Could this situation be justified as being ok or what? thanks

    Is gochujang halal?

    Hi, I was looking to buy gochujang which is a Korean red chilli paste, but I looked into the ingredients and it says it contains grain alcohol (ethanol) which is not najis according to ayatollah sistani and it can be consumed if the quantity is less that 2%. Alcohol can be present due to two reasons, one is that it's naturally occurring because of fermentation, and other is that it is added to preserve freshness. So in these both cases, is it permissible to eat the product. Also I would be using it in cooking so the alcohol evaporates. Any feedback would be appreciated Thank you
  17. I want to adopt a Cat, but some people and my family don't agree with it and don't alow me. They say that Cat is a Haram animal and it will have negative effects in our home. Is this thought correct? I can take care of this animal and complete its every need as I have affection for these creatures and love them.
  18. I recently signed up on a site, where you get paid for doing other people's homework. I've rejected every assignment proposal that has asked for acknowledgement that the student has done it himself. I refrain from attempting tests or quizzes for people as well. Doing homework for people can be considered as help init? Just like your household or your tutor help you (that's my opinion). If anyone knows a proper mushtahid's verdict on the topic, feel free to answer, thank you!
  19. salam alykum wrwb. according to the above verse, we are told not to spy on each other. Now, in these advanced times where it is much easier to spy on the ordinary & make money out of it. is that money made out of spying on the life of someone halal? it is wrong in my head & oppressive, but not so in else's head. what about yours? ws
  20. Asalamu aleykum my brothers and sisters I want to ask help for this bad problem? I feel me very ashamed about this ASTAGHFIRULLAH and i want to finally leave it! Its a sin which follows me since my childhood and its masturbation. Maybe some will be shocked and I also read in a Hadiths that mastubation is a way to hell. I love Allah, the Quran and the Ahlul Bayt and i dont want to disapointed them with this, because i want also take responsibility when i want to marry a future wive, to be muslim father/husband and the masturbation destroys me physically and mentally and its need to stop. I even started to not do it for 2 weeks but it came back automatically in some pornography websites when something give me a influence like social media or even not from social media. I tried often not to use electronic things like smartphones or computer, but its impossible because i need to connect with people when its really important. I hope you can help me in some way, and please make Dua for me to stop it. Wa salam
  21. Hi all, I've many questions which I'd like to ask in this thread, please bear with me and I'd kindly ask you, please please please, try not to judge me as much. Before I get started, I'd like to let you know I'm a 14 year old boy who has fallen DEEP into committing the sin of masturbation. I'm not trying to return back to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and I'd like some advice and I had some questions. Firstly, I'd like to know how I can quit of doing this sin. It's become very extreme, even to the point where I'm doing it even when I'm fasting in the holy month of ramadan. I've tried many ways, different techniques, but to no avail, I could barely go up to a week without pornography and/or masturbation. Furthermore, I follow sistani as my marja' so please when answering try to show as much proof. Secondly, I had 2 questions. Regarding the masturbation that I did in ramadan and while I was fasting during daylight hours, no ejaculation has happened and when masturbating, I had no intention of ejaculation. This actually happened, so does that mean I have to do qaza fasts AND kafarah, or only qaza fast or even none of the above? Thirdly, my other question is this. Because I used to masturbate before, I tried to keep in the ejaculation and most of the times it happened. I was also ignorant at the time, and I just searched my questions and based rulings and my sins and etc of a sunni basis. According to them, if no ejaculation happens, ghusl is not required and only wudhu would suffice, I'd like to know if it's the same for Shia islam too or would you have to do ghusl even when no ejaculation took place? I'll be looking forward to your answers, please please please, once again, try not to judge me, I'm already disappointed and embarrassed enough. Thanks.
  22. Hello, I used to masturbate before - I held in the semen and then did a wudhu and proceeded to read salah, for the times which ejaculation happened I did a ghusl - I'm unsure if I should read all my namaz as qadha again as I'm unsure if masturbation with no ejaculation invalidates salah that has been done with no ghusl before it - please guide!
