    Learning Farsi

    I started learning Farsi during Covid and want to encourage you to do the same: 1. The grammar is actually very easy - much easier than you might think. 2. Finding a langiuage partner to help you practice is easy too, using an app like Tandem. I spend an hour a day on skype with an Iranian 3. A language partner is not the same as a teacher - dont expect too much from someone you know who isnt a teacher. Use a teacher too. 4. The Internet is a problem in Iran sometimes but Skype and zoom seem to be ok most days anyway - assuming the Iranian uses a VPN 5. The script is the most difficult part, you should leave it until you have a good command of pinglish sometimes called finglish - Farsi written with English letters 6. The cultural difference with different styles of learning can be a problem. Even day to day conversations on daily issues is fine and useful 7. Younger Iranians tend not to be so religious, dont expect too many conversations about being shia. 8. Iranians are so friendly! Just enjoy it, they really want to help! Lastly, just enjoy yourself and have fun.
  2. Why Allah uses different names for the fire ? Like sometimes naar, sometimes hutamat ( surah hamza ayat 4) and some times havia(surah alqaria ayat 9)? What is the differnce between these names ?
  3. Allah, is an Arabic word, is the unique name of God.( knowingTujweed( Muslims prefer to use Allah rather than God. Allah is the only God, all-powerful and all-knowing creator, sustainer, ordainer and judge of the universe. He is unique (wahid) and inherently one (ahad), all-merciful and omnipotent. Allah says in Al Quran about him: (O Esteemed Messenger!) Proclaim: ‘He is Allah, Who is the One. Allah is the Transcendent of all, the Protector and Far-Superior to all. He has not begotten any, nor is He begotten. Nor is there anyone equal to Him.’ (Al Quran 112: 1-4) It is the fundamental belief of the Muslims that Allah does not resemble anything. He does not have body, face, hands, legs or any other parts. But He sees without the eyes. He hears without the ears. He exists without a place.“Teaching Islamic Studies” According to the Al Quran, "No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision. God is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things" (Al Quran 6:103) Muslims believe that Allah created whole universe and the creature by his sheer command “Kun” means “Be”. According to the Al Quran, “(He is the) Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decides a matter, He simply says to it: “Be”, and it comes to be.” (Al Quran 2: 117) Further Allah says that the purpose of human creation is to worship him. “I did not create the Jinns and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me.”“Online Quran Teaching” (Al Quran 51: 56) “Online Arabic Teaching” There are 99 Names of Allah which is called as “al hasma al husnaa” means "The beautiful names". Each of which evoke a distinct characteristic of Allah. All these names refer to Allah, the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name. Among the 99 names of God, the most famous and most frequent of these names are "the Merciful" (ar-raḥman) and "the Compassionate" (ar-raḥim).

  4. COMPANIONS OF PROPHET ﷺ) In Islam, the Sahāba were the companions of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). This form is plural, the singular is Sahābi, which is Arabic for "friend, companion." Definitions of Companion Anyone who saw Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in his lifetime, believed in his teachings, and died as a Muslim to be a Companion or Ṣahābi. Lists of prominent Companions usually run to fifty or sixty names, being the people most closely associated with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). It was important to identify the Companions because later scholars accepted their testimony (the hadith, or traditions) as to the words and deeds of Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the occasions on which the Qur'an was revealed, and various important matters of Islamic history and practice (sunnah). The testimony of the Companions, as it was passed down through chains of trusted narrators (isnads), was the basis of the developing Islamic tradition. Other links in the chain of isnad Because the hadith were not written down until many years after the death of Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the isnads, or chains of transmission, always have several links. The first link is preferably a Companion, who had direct contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). The Companion then related the tradition to a taba'een, the companion of the Companion. Taba'een had no direct contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), but did have direct contact with the Ṣahāba. The tradition then would have been passed from the taba'een to the tabataba'een, the third link. The second and third links in the chain of transmission were also of great interest to Muslim scholars, who treated of them in biographical dictionaries and evaluated them for bias and reliability. Views of the companions According to Sunni scholars, people of the past should be considered Companions if they had any kind of contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). If they saw him, heard him, or were in his presence even briefly, they are Companions. Blind people are considered Companions even if they could not see Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). Infants who could not remember their contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) are still considered Companions. Even unlearned and unobservant Muslims are considered Companions. However, anyone who died after rejecting Islam and becoming an apostate is not considered a Companion. Sunni Muslim scholars classified Companions into many categories, based on a number of criteria. Imam Suyuti recognized eleven levels of Companionship. However, all Companions are considered just (udul); that is, Sunni scholars do not believe that Companions would lie or fabricate hadith.

  5. The topic doesn't imply 'Putting yourself before others'. Altruism is a beautiful virtue; not many possess, but the great ones did. What's as important or perhaps even more important than putting others before yourself, is to improve your own-self before doing so. It should be kept in mind that the one who's drowning can't save the others, who're drowning. The one who's sick, cannot properly heal other sick ones. Someone gave a good example of how they ask you to "Put your own oxygen mask before assisting others" on an airplane during the safety walk-through. It's for the same reason that if you're unconscious, you cannot help others. Imam Ali (as) said, Whoever wants to be a leader should educate himself before educating others. Before preaching others, he should first practice himself. Whoever educates himself and improves his own morals is superior to the man who tries to teach & train others. Buddha in regards to the same thought said, A man who conquers himself, is better than a man who conquers a thousand men in battle. So, before you go out there to help others, be your own doctor & check whether you're suffering from the same disease or not. Improve yourself, before you go out to improve others.
  6. It is clear that having sufficient knowledge is necessary to have an Ideal life. On the other hand, when a man is born, he/she does not know anything and needs to be educated. Hence, one of the most important persons in a society is the teacher. A teacher teaches required things to the student and guides him/her to the right way. Teacher is able to instruct the customs of life to his/her student and ensure his/her future. And also teacher can prevent his/her student from slip and mistake. Due to this high position of a teacher, the sacred religion of Islam gives directives about the place and rights of teacher. In fact, the high position of a teacher is because of the high position of science and learning in Islam. As it is stated in the Glorious Qur’an: “Say: Are those who know equal to the ones who do not know? (39:9) And also, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) has said: “The good of the world and the Hereafter is in learning and the evil of the world and the Hereafter is in ignorance.” (Bihār al-Anwār/volume79/page170)
  7. Salaam. I want to know each and every thing about exorcism in islam. Is there a book? And ways to prevent it. Please help.
  8. Salamun Alaykum! If I were to potentially create a Whatsapp group for people like me, who: -love Arabic Latimiya -do not always manage to understand them fully, how many of you would be willing to join? It would involve two kinds of people: 1. people like me, and 2. people who are fluent in Arabic and can help us! The first type of people would ask questions regarding meanings of words/phrases in Latimiyaat (not necessarily, but let's start there) and the second category would help with that. The group would aim not to waste anyone's time and so we would try and only ask questions we can't easily get translations of on the Internet. Who's in? (and do mention which category of people you'd fall under!) Thanks!
  9. My name is Carol, and I belong to a Christian family. I've always disliked the way the Christians taught about God, and became an Atheist about a year and a half ago. But I've always been drawn to Islam, and my lover has given me the little push I needed to start learning about it. He can't answer all my questions, as we live half a world apart right now, so I'm looking for others who can teach me what I need to know before officially becoming Muslim. I can learn most things by myself, but I need some suggestions on what to research and learn about before making my decision. Thanks in advance.
  10. Asalaam Alaikum brothers and sisters. I was wondering if anyone could share what they believed was the best way to learn Arabic (formal classes, certain websites, software, etc.). Help from those who had to learn Arabic as another language would be much appreciated! I am thinking of buying Rosetta Stone arabic (since it teaches you more formal), though it is rather expensive. All advice would be great, thank you!
  11. Salaam all, So I am a student. I feel like I have this block. I feel as if I don't have the capability to be successful in my project and general reading. When I want to read, I feel like I need to know everything. It is just overwhelming me. So much so that I can't open my work and just want to run away from it. I have a major exam in exactly one month, and a deadline for my research project mid month. I don't feel that I know my subject well and just really want to know and understand it. pleeasee someone give me some tips or something :cry:
  12. Sallam Alikum, What's the difference between Juz, and Chapter? And also where do we know what chapter is a surah in? Just by counting the surah? Or how does it work?
  13. Salaam alaikum brothers and sisters! First, let me thank the kind and knowledgeable people here on ShiaChat. Alhamdulillah, I have made the leap and reverted to the Shi'a school, but I have miles to go still. Inshallah, I want to take it to the next level; I feel like I need to learn to read Qur'an in Arabic and I want to be able to read and understand scholarly writings in their original tongue. I guess what I'm saying is that I want to learn as much about the best Deen as I can. A kind member mentioned that there are several teachers and Hawza students here, but I am a bit shy about messaging anyone directly. So if anyone has suggestions about online courses for a native English speaker, I would be so grateful! Jazaak Allah Khair! R
  14. Assalamu Alaykum everyone- I would love to attend howza. I live in the United States and there is one Howza in the state I live but not close enough to attend and still work full-time. I am looking for an online howza where you can work towards a degree and where it's either free or maybe no more than $1000 a year. There are online Sunni schools like this (free/low cost for example IOU) but I am having a hard time finding Shia online schools that are free or low cost. Any information that can be shared would be greatly appreciated! Shukran.
  15. Salam everyone I need help with something that gets me frustrated and takes up a lot of my time, when learning about Islam I tend to research for hours about different topics and I end up looking up to much information that it gets me stressful and I don't feel like I learnt anything. So instead, can people tell me what good topics to research and learn about that will help me learn more efficiently rather than going from this to that and getting no where. I don't really know what I should be learning about so any suggestions that people think are good to start with will be good. If it helps, I'm 16, male and Shia.
  16. Hello all, I need some guidance and information with the questions or points i'm going to list. I am part of a Muslim family and always was a Muslim but I was the kind of Muslim that just said he was. I pretended to fast, didn't pray, did forbidden acts (not intercourse), etc. I really don't know what hit me because all of a sudden I just started learning about Islam and praying. It was kind of weird and I still don't know how or why that happened. Anyway I have been learning and "fixing up" since the start of this month but there are issues that I need help with. Prayers - I am trying to remember to pray everyday and I haven't really missed a lot this month but the only one I have a problem with and confused about is morning prayer. I can't wake up and just pray, that's just not possible for me. So I was wondering if I can pray it when ever I just wake up or is it compulsory to wake up to pray. If it is, I know for a fact I ain't getting up and if I somehow I do, I won't be able to sleep again. Certain sights - I see a lot of half naked girls while i'm out and stuff. Do I have to lower my gaze because I have been seeing this stuff since birth and I live in London so it's like looking at a tree to me, if you get what i'm getting at. Secondly, websites like Tumblr. People post pictures of nude girls, is it okay if I see those pictures but just carry on like its nothing? I already do that and it does not influence me to go masturbate or have intercourse with a girl or anything. I'm just use to it. So is it haram do to this or not since it doesn't engage me to do any prohibited act or even go on a pornographic website. Sexual Desire - I considered this normal since everyone did it, encouraged it and talked about it. I don't really know if this is true but apparently it's part of our natural to masturbate. Since intercourse before marriage is forbidden in Islam I ended up doing a search on masturbation and found out it was forbidden too. So I have masturbated since and its been 24 days. Even though I get an urge to do it and I did this act regularly before, like nearly everyday but I am able to just somehow beat the temptation and not do it, never thought I could but I did. What I am asking here is because I stopped this act, would it reduce the chance or even cure my reproductive system (if the problem is in the reproductive system lol) from premature ejaculation? I don't know if I have it but I reached orgasms quickly at times. I'm probably not going to perform any type of sexual act since I have 16 years of education ahead :mellow:. Fail. Haaj - This is part of the five pillars in Islam, I think it is anyway not to sure, but I don't know if I can do this or want to. I mean, going to Saudi Arabia, shaving my head, wearing white robes and paying for the trip seem to cancel out everything even if there are good sides. I mean after i'm done with my education I will be earning quite a lot so money isn't a problem to be honest. But yeah is it compulsory? I did hear that if you can afford the trip and stuff you have to go, i'm not sure if this is true so explaining that would be great. Those are my main things on my head now but if people know of any websites or books (not the quran, already have it) can you please link me to the websites and tell me the books names. There are a lot of websites out there I know but I won't probably be able to tell the difference if its Sunni or Shia. I'm looking for Shia ones. Forgot to say, i'm a 16 years old male. Thanks :shifty:
