  1. Almost every Thursday night, my parents light a candle, bring some drinks (usually just milk mixed with rooh afza) and we recite Surah Al-Fatihah once followed by Surah Al-Ikhlas three times. We do this once for the 14 infallibles, and again for our deceased relatives. Then, we drink from the milk, and put out the candle. There are some variations to this, but this is usually what we do every Thursday night. My mother calls this "nazr". I have lots of questions about this. Firstly, why is it called "nazr"? Isn't this word based off the arabic word "nadhr", which means a vow? But it doesn't seem like we are making a vow. I have also heard that "nazr" in urdu means black magic, but looking online I can't find anything to confirm this. In fact, on this site it looks like it means a gift, or an offering. This seems more close to what we're doing, I guess we are offering the milk we're drinking as an offering? But to whom? Are we offering it to the 14 infallibles and our deceased relatives? I don't understand that, because it doesn't seem like offering the milk (which we later drink ourselves) would benefit them in any way. 13 of the 14 infallibles are deceased, and the one who is alive never appears to drink the milk. Therefore, it can't benefit them. The deceased relatives hence also cannot benefit from the milk. It then may follow from that that our gift is towards Allah. But Allah does not need our gift, because he is self-sufficient. So now I am confused what our gift is for, if we are using the urdu translation of "nazr". Also, what is the arabic term for this? If "nazr" is not the correct term, then what is? What exactly are we doing? I tried looking on Al-Islam.org but could not find any references to this practice. I guess I'm not really understanding the purpose behind the practice. One explanation could be that we are doing this to remember the 14 infallibles and our deceased relatives. But then why do we need the candle and the drinks? If someone could help clear these questions for me, that would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
  2. Assalam o Alaikum. Today is 22nd rajab, day of koonday. Is there anyone who explain this. What is it's origin. And the rules and regulations. Anyone whose family or relatives used to do this on 22nd rajab, want to shed some light. Any words on this practise from any marjae or ayatullah?
  3. Hello, I have a question. So I have an issue in my life and have been advised to read surah Yasin 40 times for my troubles to be fixed. I agreed to do it and started to read. My problem is that I dont speak arabic and can barely read it. After some practice through the years I am able to 'read' it...as in I know the alphabet and how it works and can sound it out....but I am really bad at it. For example it can take me a full minute or two to read a line. Not only am I veryyyyy brutally slow, I also make mistakes, and I also dont understand it - Like I have no idea what I am saying! After a gruelling 3 times of reading it in arabic (and it took me an hour each time to read something that takes people 10 minutes to read!) I got really frustrated and stopped. It literally has no meaning for me and I felt it was useless. Then I decided to read the english translation of it and thought wow! how beautiful! Got Chills! So now I am wondering if I could just read it 40 times in english? would that 'count'? Or does it *need* to be read in arabic? My reasoning is: - It takes forever to read it - I am probably making a million mistakes and dont even know it - I don't understand anything I am reading - if I am going to go through all of that should I not at least LEARN something from it? I feel I can LEARN the message of the Quran by reading this over and over (it is the heart of the quran!). But if I read it in arabic it literally does nothing for me aside from give me a really big headache. SO what do you guys think? Can I just read it in English? Or does it HAVE to be in arabic for it to 'count' ? :/
  4. Al salamo alaykom Addham Allah Ajrakum Wa Ahsan Aza'akum bi muzab Imam Al Hussein (as) I woke up this morning to the smell of fried onions all over the house. I hurried to the kitchen and saw mom cooking a soup-like food (Qima), donating it to the Husseiniya. She said during Muharram all the Shia Muslims around the world do the same. It's called making Nazri/äÐÑ, and while mixing the food we can make wishes in the name of Imam Hussain (as) , hopefully in future God will fulfill them. Unfortunately, I'm really bad at cooking and couldn't help much expect of stirring the pot with a long wooden spoon and making hundreds of wishes. :angel: Do Shia Muslims in other countries really believe in this thing? - Large Qima pot - Fried Onion - Mom run out of onions, I went out to buy her more. - It's still a mystery to me, how to know if an onion is BAD? Mmm they never taught us that in school... - This is how a mashed (Qima) looks like... Brother helping too! <3 Making dua mashallah... Tralalalal almost finished Qima! just don't ask me for the recipe. Mom tried to explain, but it's all too complicated.. :huh: If you know other types of Nazri, please post it here!
