  1. Have you ever experienced life inertia, in that you found yourself completely stuck in life, zero motivation to do things etc? If yes, how did you move on? What helped you? Any advice? May Allah azwj bless you all.
  2. Bismillah i Rahman i Raheem Assalaam o 'Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah i Wa Barakaatuh I am currently a student in high school. I've had an interest in mathematics and physics, but I may not be able to pursue that interest due to some past incidents where some cruel people sabotaged my academics and due to some other financial issues. My life plan was to initially study these two subjects and then after that attend the Hawza at Najaf and study the faith there. However, it seems unlikely for this to be the case, so I have been thinking about turning the plan on its head, such that I study at Hawza e Najaf instead first, and if I live long enough, study physics and mathematics at some institution separately. I am aware of how different life will be if I choose to live in Najaf and how I'll need to make a living there, especially due to language issues considering I am from Pakistan, and my understanding of arabic/farsi is essentially absolutely zero, but I have heard it isn't impossible to live there even with these issues. I write this post in seeking guidance as to how to apply to the Hawza, how to essentially get admitted there, and study there. I would sincerely appreciate this help. JazakAllah Wa 'Alaikum Assalaam Wa Rahmatullah i Wa Barakaatuh
  3. What is your daily routine? Not during the quarantine now, but when things were normal. What was your daily routine then?
  4. So I'm about to graduate university in a few months, Inshallah. Everyone has told me that getting employed will be difficult and that rejection is inevitable. So far I've been rejected by every job I've applied to except 1 which isn't really a great job, but Alhamdullilah regardless. I'm curious to see how everyones employment journeys came about? Was it the usual job application and interview process? If so, what steps did you take to prepare? Honestly it's very demotivating when you spend time on job applications and get rejected right off the bat even when you know that you're a great fit.
  5. Salam, I see the worst thing(s) that happened to me and the lowest moment(s) in my life as the best as it taught me a lot of things for the future, made me much more resilient, aware and strong, I will summarise it in a few points below and would like know what others learned from their experiences: Situations can change instantaneously thus it's best to be prepared as much as possible and be adaptable. To have 0 expectations from individuals regardless of your relationship with them, the only one worthy of expectation is Allah, the Prophet and his Ahlul Bayt(عليه السلام). Though I feel naturally as emotional beings we tend to develop expectations at time perhaps unconsciously with people moreso with people with whom we have been selfless or have helped in some way To hope for the best and greatest even if it seems impossible at the same time be prepared practically and mentally for the worst even if it seems far fetched. To try and not attach yourself or depend on any individual, entity, position, location, object, habits, addictions the less dependent you are on things the less weaknesses you have. Ofcourse as humans naturally certain elements are important and unavoidable such as family loved ones but this is referring to things otherwise. Not letting emotions drive decisions, always thinking twice before making a decision.
  6. As salam alaykum, hope you're all well. I have a presentation on a historical person in history class, and I chose Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) in hope of learning more about him, and I want to present about his life as genuine and proper as possible, since it's in front of mostly people that have never heard of him or just heard misconceptions. I unfortunately can't say I know much about the Imams and their lives, so I was wondering if someone could help me. Basically I have to choose an issue around his life, and try to answer that through the presentation, I'm thinking of going with why did he fight at Karbala. I don't want to give any false information, therefore I was wondering if someone could help me a bit with his life, such as his birth (where he was born, when), death, where he lived, education, work etc, basically the beginning of his life. What he has done that made him so famous today (I can't just say he is a Shia Imam, but also how he is relevant for non Muslim history as well in general). Theories on him and why he did what he did, his thoughts, and view on it all. I also have to talk about the how community and society around him was at the time, how people were treated, difference he made and other important things in his life. I would appreciate it a lot if someone could help me with this, I personally have just started getting closer to God, and my religion therefore I don't really know that much besides the basic, and I don't have anyone to ask. It would mean a lot if someone personally told me, or gave me links to sites that have answers, please don't provide information if you don't have the source. Thank you so much to anyone that helps.
  7. Salam Alakum Brothers and sisters while living in the West do you feel that there is a requirement of Halal Catering solution for majalis, wedding parties, Milad and other get togethers. I and my friends are working on this solution and willing to find your answers and your opinions? Halal Catering solution will enable a user to choose the best deal for catering meals for any big occasion. Please share your opinion.
  8. Salam Here's an article encouraging us to broaden our thinking on what beings from another world might be like. Sci-fi is fun, but don't let it take over your way of thinking. Whatever we can think of out there, the reality is almost definitely much, much weirder. https://www.universal-sci.com/headlines/2017/10/29/why-our-imagination-for-alien-life-is-so-impoverished If there is sentient life besides us in the universe, what do you think it would be like? I think the possibilities are unlimited.
  9. I know having children is a blessing from Allah swt but I just feel like why bring them into such a messed up world. Of course each soul that is put here is by the will of Allah swt but of course we are also responsible. As Muslims we all know this life is a test to inshallah obtain heaven in the hearafter. Why put someone through that test in the first place? I mean if I pull help it I wouldn’t want anyone even going through the pain of a paper cut s why would I want to bring a child into a world of pain? Oh ya ur kid might be the next Einstein or newton or even Abbas (as) but their lives weren’t exactly a bed of roses. Why put them through so much crap for a little ray of sunshine in this world. I’d rather not know crap exists at all, even if it means not knowing sunshine does either because in the end I’d be non existent and therefor indifferent but ultimately saved from the tribulations of life. I’m 24f married for 3 years and I don’t think I want kids. Any thoughts? What do the imaams and our Holy prophet have to say about the reason for having children in Islam? Why would you bring a child into this world?
  10. Salamun Alaykum.. 1. I want to know from as many as possible as to what your "aspiration/goal(s)" is/are. 2. How do you see this world and how will you use it to reach your goal(s)? 3. What keeps you closer to Allah everyday? 4. What is our responsibility in the Ghaybah of Imam (ajfs) and how will you play your role? 5. How do you repel and destroy the Jahl(ignorance) inside yourself? 6. How do you wish to die? And what are you doing about it (if its not an ordinary death that you want)? 7. Do you wish to contribute to Iranian(Islamic) Revolution. If yes then How, If no then Why? 8. How do you see money and life based on good economic value?
  11. Assalam o Alaykum everyone. What all you do(will do) to make a living? I'm too confused to decide what I should do. I'm doing my undergraduate in Computer Science but somehow I'm not getting hooked up with this subject. I can prepare for National MBA programme in my country (India) and can appear for a Test right after my Graduation but until then I need to do something online for a living. Can you people suggest me something Halal and peaceful in which I can invest my time and earn something until my Test arrives.

    How would one begin to describe a Muslim should think of themselves? Also, but not exclusively, including aspects of culture, family, and responsibility?
  13. What can religious people do that atheists can't, like whats the point of it
  14. I’m writing this while I'm crying. I'm so tired.. I have always been this hopeful person, that always saw the good things in people, in situations, in everything, all that because of my faith. I believed that I had a strong faith, making always due, prays, doing my thing. Lately I’m just tired of everthing and everyone. I feel like im lost and doesn’t know what to do. Everything is just, blank.. The problems that I prayed for before (last years and the years before) aren’t gone. Things are just the same and even worse. I’m afraid of myself.. Afraid of losing my faith. Afraid of losing hope.. Feel like I don't have any hope anymore in life.. I'm hating myself for thinking like that. I feel guilty.. I shouldn’t think like that. But then I think about my life and my timeline, and wallah, I’m trying very hard to think about good things that happened in my life (for my family, sisters, brother, school, friends).. NOTHING! seriously nothing.. Is this life? Should it be like that, when every Islam always talks about happiness. Wallah I'm trying to be content with all the problems, and everything.. But.. I even tried to speak to the local sheikh here, but he wasn't of much help.. I hate the "why me", but always wondering, why is life so hard on me. And I know some of you will blame me and tell me to be patient. I've been patient since I was 13 years old, and now I'm 25 years old.. It’s so hard.
  15. I struggle with : being patient, thinking positively, praying, accepting my existence, forgetting my past, and lots more.... BUT im still living
  16. Salam alakum, This is my first post on here so hello all. My question is in reference to the holy imam's quote below which I am sure many of you have heard: Imam al-Sadiq (A.S) said, ‘The world is the prison of the believer, the grave is his fortress and Paradise is his final abode. The world is the Paradise of the disbeliever, the grave is his prison and the Fire is his final abode.’[al-Khisal, p. 108, no. 74] My question to you is... to what extent do you really feel that the world is a prison? I ask this because alhamdilAllah as somebody who has a happiness, health and an amazing family I feel that I would rather not be here a lot of the time and would rather die. Is this something you can relate to? (If not, I should probably get some help with my mental health...lol) I am genuinely interested in people's thoughts!
  17. SalaM, There IS life after DEATH: Scientists reveal shock findings from groundbreaking study: https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/news/science/670781/There-IS-life-after-DEATH-Scientists-reveal-shock-findings-from-groundbreaking-study/amp Quantum Physics proves there is an afterlife : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2503370/Quantum-physics-proves-IS-afterlife-claims-scientist.html Quantum Physics proves that death is an illusion: http://in5d.com/quantum-physics-proves-that-death-is-an-illusion/
  18. Salaam, I have seen many supposed Imam Ali a.s quotes but two that I particularly like are "Life consists of two days, one for you and one against you. So when it's for you don't be proud or reckless, and when it's against you be patient, for both days are a test for you" and "It is in the changing of circumstances in life that the essence of man is revealed." However, I cannot find any references or sources to attribute these sayings to Imam Ali a.s. which leads me to believe that they were not actually said by him. If anyone could provide references/source for either of these quotes, I would be very very grateful. Ya Ali Madad
  19. Below is a lesson taught to a child by her parent. It explains the power & the affect that words can have. A lesson we all need to remind ourselves daily. My daughter start middle school tomorrow. We've decorated her locker, bought new uniform. Even surprised her with a new backpack. But tonight, right before bed, we did another pre-middle school task that is far more important than the others. I gave her a tube of toothpaste and asked her to squirt it onto a plate. When she finished, I calmly asked her to put all the toothpaste back into the tube. She began exclaiming things like, "But I can't!" and "It won't be like it was before!" I quietly waited for her to finish, and then said the following, "You will remember this plate of toothpaste for the rest of your life. Your words have the power of life or death. As you go into the middle school, you are about to see how much weight your words carry. You are going to have the opportunity to use your words to hurt, demean, slander & wound others.You are also going to have the opportunity to use your words to heal, encourage, inspire and love others. You will occasionally make the wrong choice. I can think of 3 times I have used my own words carelessly and caused harm. Just like this toothpaste, once the words leave your mouth, you can't take them back! Use your words carefully. When others are misusing their words, guard yours. Make the choice everyday that life-giving words will come out of your mouth. Decide tonight that you are going to be a life-giver in middle school. Be known for your gentleness and compassion. Use your life to give life to a world that so desperately needs it. You will never, ever regret choosing kindness." Source: Littlethings.com
  20. Shian e Ali

    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!
  21. What is Islamic life? Before defining the Islamic life it is very helpful to know the meaning of Islam . “Islam” literally means surrender, it means that a believer must completely gives up his own will and subjects his thoughts, ideas, and deeds to the will and teaching of a higher power, in other word, Islam means that we, as a Muslim, must trample under feet our own will, and follow God’s commands. So, Islamic life means that we must follow and put in to practice Islamic law and regulation during our life time to reach prosperity and perfection. To follow Islamic commands we should become familiar with the life style of the holy prophet, peace be upon him and his family, and Ahlul Bayt , peace be upon them, because, the holy prophet is the best role model for us as the holy Quran said “ in the Apostle of Allah there is certainly for you a good exemplar, for those who look forward to Allah and the last day’’ (33-21) . In the same way, Ahlul al-Bayt are the best role model for us, in reality, if we put in to action the infallible orders, our life will turn to Islamic life because after the demise of the holy prophet , peace be upon him, they were the only religious authority in Muslim community, and people were directed to refer to them to know their religious duty as the holy prophet explicitly said ‘’ I left among you two precious gifts The Holy Quran and my progeny they will go together till the day of judgment, and they will never be separate from each other’’
  22. Salam to you all brothers and Sisters. Recently, i came across some inspirational stories on the net which I'd like to share with you all (here on SC) but with time, inshaAllah. So these stories teaches some lessons about life in one way or the other and they're mostly very short and interesting. Again, it would be more interesting if you could all share your stories too (that's if you come across any story on the net or somewhere). InshaAllah, some members would benefit from what you shared. Thanks.
