  1. Hello, So here is my story I was born and raised in France and I never practiced islam before last ramadan. I started reading the quran because I was home for the summer, class was over and did not have a job. As I had a lot of free time I started praying and I was pushed to pray because eventhough I wasn't practicing before I was raised a believer and I knew about Allah. Since I wasn't in a place I wanted in life I started making duas. One year later I feel like nothing has changed and I'm still (if not more) depressed about my life I'm not sure where I'm going I feel like it's just a mess and what I wanted my prayers to bring me was guidance. So today I feel like all my duas and prayers were useless and it's quite hard for me to keep up praying and reading surats and hadiths everyday because inside im very sad and at the beginning I thought Islam would be the cure for my depression. Today Im still doing all this thing but I don't understand why because I am afraid I have become hopeless I guess I'm praying just to have nothing to lose in the end I don't think I'm bad person I even tried to help people as much as I can I really tried to make everything work for me like adding zakat, paying people food, fasting.. What do you suggest me to do ? What would you do at my place? I feel like I need a miracle

    Hope!

    Hope is a powerful thing! It can turn the tides. It gives a reason to live & to thrive for a better future while despair, is what kills it all. Desmond defines hope as, Hope is being able to see that there's light despite all the darkness Every living thing has a spark of hope in it, that pushes it forward, especially humans that work so hard for tomorrow with the hope of being alive even without any certainty. As they say, Where there's life, there's hope! That little whisper in your heart telling you to try something out even if it seems hard, is hope! Abraham Miller said, A man begins to die when he starts to lose hope. So, keep that little spark glowing in yourself & spread it all around you, to help others, to give them a reason to live, to strengthen their will. In Avatar, book 2, General Iroh advises his nephew, You must never give in to despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road & you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of Inner Strength. People that give into despair are the ones that lose all hope. Unable to bear the pains & misery, they let go of life. They're the ones that we lose, some of them being our brothers & sisters. So, the next time you meet someone who's losing hope, try not to let it happen. Give them a reason to live & help them out. Every life counts!
  3. Salam Alaykum It's long that I've been thinking about our duties before Faraj, we believe that by Faraj there will start a whole different era, but what about before it? I think regarding this particular issue, there are two main camps in Shia community, those (scholars) who promote hope for a bright future and, those who promote disappointment and passiveness. my own stance is this: get prepared for Faraj as if it's gonna happen tomorrow, and be ready for Ghayba as if it's going to continue for 100 years. and I have adopted this form this miraculous narration: get prepared for death as if you are going to die tomorrow, and work for your life as if you're gonna live 100 years. many people misunderstand and confuse this two sides, they don't do anything for their life, saying ok, we're gonna die anyway, on the other hand some have only attached to this dunya and never think of death, but some have reached a balance. sometimes at the amidst of all these problems Muslims and Shia have in their homelands, which have disappointed many of the youth who have lost their hope for a better future in Muslim lands, some leave their homeland, some long for Faraj (which is a necessity) but I think at all of this, the hope-giving language of Ayatollah Khamenei is amazing, he knows the Rewayat of Faraj and its surrendering fitnas, he knows the current problems in Muslim lands and Shia community, yet he continues giving hope to youth. a failed nation is a nation whose youth have lost their hope. and I think the greatest danger for Muslim nations is that young Muslims are losing their hope and some people, knowingly or unknowingly are helping and spreading this disappointment.
  4. You all know I was struggling to find someone who would be happy with me even though I am not rich and I am going to Iran. Well I realized that it is not possible, so I decided to just wait until I go to Iran but I also put more effort into my religion and prayers and asked Allah to grant me a pious wife, sooner. Whilst also thanking him for giving me loneliness. As a part of my self development exercise, I have been giving generously to others and in college I gave the Brothers and Sisters some free stuff like money, lunch, books etc. I was particularly kind to one brother who is white bearded and I think because of that he went out of his way to find me someone :) Now he has found a family who seem happy with my plans and I will be arranging a meeting between our families soon. Moral of the story = Allah is most loving, all knowing, all powerful therefore rely on him. Please ask Allah to deliver me to what is best for me, the only thing which remains is for them to like my personality and my family. Beseech God sincerely please. Thanks Wasalam

  6. Salam everyone, I have a question regarding the destiny of ones life. I am sort of confused about life . I don't understand if God controls things and if he does,how much does he control them. It confuses me because sometimes I feel like when I try to change things in my life , theres no result , even though i keep trying and hoping for a change. I surely don't try to change things that are unchangeable . So it lefts me with dispair , so i start asking myself if it's Gods willing, and if it is .. Is it for the best? Do i have to stop trying because maybe when God will want something to happen to me it will happen ? I'm just very confused. Hope I was clear with my questionning!

    Four Candles

    Four Candles were talking to each other: Candle-1: I am Peace, no one needs me, and it went off. Candle-2: I am Faith, no body believes in me, and it went off. Candle-3: I am Love, no body care for me, and it went off. Candle-4: I can Light the other 3, because I am Hope and I last forever. Life is tough, sometimes impossible to live, but never lose hope. I wish that your Candle of Hope lights all your Other Candles and keep them glowing.
