  1. Whenever I am praying or doing tasbeeh or even reciting Quran my family always talks to me while I am praying as if I will respond and they will ask a question multiple times (I never respond). I tell them to stop but they are heedless. They say they are muslim but don't uphold any of the pillars of Islam and mock Islam whenever they see me doing Ibada. I used to, but can't go to the masjid because I am in the west and I am told that our passport will be cancelled if I am seen at the mosque. What should I do?
  3. Asalamu alaykum brothers and sisters, If one does not perform namaz intentionally and this carelessness has been going on for about a month now do they have to make up for their missed namaz or would it be fine for a sincere repent to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I’m generally confused right now as I watched a sunni scholar state the issue in a video and they said if the missed namaz was due to oversleeping or forgetting one must perform sarah immediately the minute they remember but if it was due to intentionally skipping it due to laziness one must repent and must not make up for it. Instead making voluntary prayers which I don’t know what that typically means. I’d be happy if one of you guys who knows an understanding on this with proof either from a scholar or hadith.
  4. I have wanted to ask this for years. Such a long qunut, repeated so many times in a row. Eid prayer feels so long, arms hurt, I do not find the wisdom in it. On what basis is that prayer celebrated that way - meaning the 5+4 'Allahumma ahl al kibria wal `azama' ?
  5. When i pry sometimes my salat gets distracted in my head or i get disturbed or thrown off of it, wcould this be the work of shaytan? Does this happen to any of you?
  6. Bismillah i Rahman i Raheem Assalaam o 'Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah i Wa Barakaatuh I was recently listening to a part of a Majlis and learned that Nafilah, or generally Mustahab prayers may be offered without standing, without facing the Ka'abah. This made me think, that if one would like to offer say, the Nafilah of Maghreb, then will he only pray the prescribed number of Rakats or will he double them if he prays sitting down? I am aware that the 1 Nafilah of Isha is to be prayed as 2 Rakats while sitting down as an obligatory precaution. What about Salat ul Layl, can one perform all of it without facing the Ka'abah and not standing up? If so, will he also need to double the number of it's Rakats? Also, does this also mean that say, a 2 Rakat prayer of Shukrana (thanks) may also be prayed similarly (as in not facing the Ka'abah, not standing up) with/without doubling? JazakAllah Wa 'Alaikum Assalaam Wa Rahmatullah i Wa Barakaatuh

    Sajdah Sahw question

    Assalamalaikum, If you forget to read al-Fatiha or al Ikhlas in the first rakat(where you make niyah) or second rakat(where you make qunoot), can you do sajdah as sahw again or do you have to do namaz again?
  8. Assalamualaikum, I just want to ask a question. If your Father is a shia and your mother is a sunni. One wants to see you pray with an open hand whereas the other wants to pray with closed, who will you listen to? and why?
  9. Islam considers Praying (Salat) five times a day [1] as one of the most important practical principles. The more times one does something, the more it becomes part of him/her and his/her character; so does prayer. Also, if there were just one prayer a day, people would be more at risk of skipping it by telling themselves: it is only one! Let’s do it tomorrow! But, essentially, why should Muslims perform the daily prayers? Here are some of the answers to this question. Daily Prayers in Islam (Salat) Help to Be Always Clean Of the prerequisites of the prayer is the purity of the body from major impurities , minor ones [ii], and the purity of clothes and place. These conditions need a state of physical and spiritual cleanliness to stand before God. So, praying five times a day bounds Muslims to take a bath regularly, wash the face and hands at least five times a day. These are the practices of personal and public hygiene. According to Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), the prayers act like a river passes nearby one’s house: “If there was a river at your door and you took a bath in it five times a day, would you notice any dirt on you? That is the parable of the five prayers by which Allah removes sins from one’s soul.”[1]. Moreover, several narrations recommend wearing perfume and brushing the teeth before ablution (Wudu) and prayers (Salat) [2,3,4]. These and other narrations, emphasize the importance of appearing clean in public and private. Daily Prayers in Islam (Salat) Promote Solidarity among Human beings and End Social Rankings Muslims, all, should pray in the same uniform way, and manner, facing the same direction. No matter what their social position is, where they are on this planet, and what language they speak. This, particularly, means that all human beings are the same before God. Moreover, all the identical acts and words during prayer and positioning towards the same direction, are the practices of promoting solidarity among Muslims, especially when repeated at some times every day. Becoming Organized by Praying every day Praying five times a day at certain intervals is an important tool. Since it allows a Muslim to organize his/her day, be aware of time, practice and take the control over his/her daily life. Spiritual Impacts of Daily Prayers in Islam (Salat) Becoming more Confident Much of what we say in our prayers is actually asking for divine help to be righteous in our decisions and actions. And, God has promised in the Quran to respond to whoever that calls him (40:60). This gives a good feeling. Knowing that a kind, wise and superior power hears us and will help us through the hard moments. He also makes us more confident and determined in our decisions. Inner Peace Just as we need food to meet our physical needs, Islam teaches us to pray and worship to get the food for our souls. That is inner peace and tranquility. Fewer Errors and Sins One of the main objectives of daily prayers (Salat) is to remember God. It also helps to purify ourselves and keep away all the evil thoughts and actions. "Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing ... And Allah knows that which you do." (29:45). Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) said that Satan is afraid of the faithful Muslim who performs the prayers (Salat) in their right times. Once a Muslim forgets to do the prayer at the right time, Satan becomes encouraged to tempt him/her to do great sins [5]. If we once do wrong to someone, we will be ashamed of him/her, or we do not even dare to face him/her the next time we meet. Prayer has the same effect. It is the confrontation of one's conscience, knowing that nothing can be hidden from God, whether manifested or concealed. Then, it becomes more difficult to commit evil deeds when we have to stand five times a day in front of God who knows every detail about us. Remembering the Philosophy of Life Another purpose of prayer for a Muslim is to remember. At fixed intervals, no matter how busy a Muslim is, he/she might ask himself, “OK, why am I here, what do I do in this world?” Also, prayer helps Muslims to be accountable for their daily actions which greatly change their perceptions of life. On top of everything, worshiping God is the purpose for which the humankind was created: “And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” (51:56). Last but not least, what do we usually do to one who has done a favor to us? The answer is: try our best to compensate, or at least to thank him/her even several times. Now, how can we compensate the blessings that God has given us? It is not possible! Then, we pray to thank Him for all the wonderful, beautiful blessings that He has given us. Although we do not deserve many of them. Notes: Can be removed by ritual bathing (Ghusl) [ii] Can be removed by ablution (Wudu) References:

  14. During Muharram, the Imam sits on a raised table. During namaz, the table is not moved. The Imam stands in front of the table and there is 1 line behind him, and the remaining people stand from behind him. The first row is not completely filled due to obstacle on each side. So in the 2nd and 3rd row, the table is directly behind Imam and people stand on left and on right. Is this valid? ................................x................................. .....................ppppppppppppp.................... pppppppppppppppTTTTpppppppppppppppp pppppppppppppppTTTTpppppppppppppppp pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp x is Imam. dot is wall or obstacle.

  19. Salaam, I was wondering if you were allowed to wear pyjamas or other clothes with images on them and covering them with a long kurta while doing namaz
  20. Salaam alaikoum dear brothers and sisters, It's highly recommended to perform the night prayer. This prayer has a lot of benefits and will help you in this life and in the hereafter inshaAllah. Imam ‘Ali (a.s.) said: “Staying awake in the (last part of the) night is healthy for the body, pleasing to the Lord Almighty, a means of Divine Mercy and adherence to the akhlaq of the prophets (a.s.). (al-Khisal: 121) My question is how do you spend or how would you like to spend your night in worship? Do you read, study, pray in the night? And how much time do you use for it? What are your personal experiences and miracles/benefits? Jazzakum Allahu khayr!
  21. I was taught to offer namaz in sunni way can anybody teach me the proper way(shia) pointing out the differences providing the source to learn as well jazakallah
  22. Bismillah i Rahman i Raheem Salaam un Alaikum I was recently told that the proper time to perform the Asr prayer is 2 hours after the Zuhr, according to Ayatollah Sistani. However, many Shia apps often tell me the time for Asr, about 4 hours after the Zuhr. I would like to know for sure what Ayatollah Sistani says about the timing of the Asr prayer. JazakAllah Alaikum us Salam
  23. Salaam I have a simple question to ask. Is it alright if one cries while performing their prayers (Salaah)? As in, does it invalidate the prayer or no? JazakAllah W. Salaam
  24. Asslamoalaikum Wa Rehmatullah Hae Wa Barakatu. My Question is that I came to know that one can not offer prayer in a room where pictures are hanging. In my room there are pictures handing behind me when I offer prayer and certain on my left side on the wall and on right side on the wall. Can I offer prayer in this room. There is no picture in front when I face Qibla. Please specially tell the fatwa of Ayatullah Ali Al Sistani (hz)
  25. What are the guidelines to allow one to sit and offer salaat. It is increasingly seen these days in mosques the high number of people taking to sitting and offering salaat. Can someone throw light on the border line to make a decision on when is one allowed to sit and pray?
