  1. سلام In the chapter of Yusuf in the Quran, we read: وَلَقَدْ هَمَّتْ بِهِ ۖ وَهَمَّ بِهَا لَوْلَا أَن رَّأَىٰ بُرْهَانَ رَبِّهِ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ لِنَصْرِفَ عَنْهُ السُّوءَ وَالْفَحْشَاءَ ۚ إِنَّهُ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا الْمُخْلَصِينَ - 12:24 She indeed desired him, and he (Yusuf) was about to desire her, too, had he not seen a clear proof (برهان) from his lord. What was this clear proof? How did he see it? Where was it? And I find it particularly fascinating that one of God's prophets was about to give in to temptation, and what stopped him was almost literally a m
  2. Is it haram to hang around people/Friends that are constantly saying the F word, even though you've said again and again not to swear to them>?
  3. (Salam) Have our Imams ever said anything about or mentioned owls in their sayings? Thank you
  4. سلام، Have the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) provided a definition of "intoxicant" for us? What is very clear is that all intoxicants are prohibited. What is not clear is what "intoxicant" means or implies. As I went through some narrations, it seems intoxication is almost always linked to a liquor or a liquid drink, whether it's raisins or grapes or ... Would the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) have labelled non-liquid substances as intoxicants, too? As the scientific community is studying certain "drugs" such as psilocybin and MDMA and CBD, they're noticing significant health
  5. سلام Recently, I've been thinking we need to translate as many classic Shi'ite books into English as possible. I can only imagine that there must be 100s of important Shi'ite books in Arabic and Farsi that have not yet been translated to English. The first step forward would be to make a list of important books that have not yet been translated to English. What are some illuminating books that you think need to be translated? After making a list, we can prioritize our list. After making a prioritized list, we can search for professional translators. And lastly we can sta
  6. Salam, The following narrations are both acceptable, found in Al-Kafi, one is Mawththaq and one is Saheeh. In both, it is narrated that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) warned people not to give in marriage to Imam Hassan (عليه السلام), since he frequently divorced. حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَمَاعَةَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ زِيَادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ إِنَّ عَلِيّاً قَالَ وَ هُوَ عَلَى الْمِنْبَرِ لَا تُزَوِّجُوا الْحَسَنَ فَإِنَّهُ رَجُلٌ مِطْلَاقٌ فَقَامَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ هَمْدَانَ فَقَالَ بَلَى وَ ا
  7. Salam, What is an accurate translation of the following narration? مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ مُلَامَسَةُ النِّسَاءِ هُوَ الْإِيقَاعُ بِهِنَّ Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Touching women is falling upon them.’” Sarwar indictes that "falling upon them" implies "going to bed" with them. However, I can't understand
  8. سلام I'm trying to better understand the concept of "sin". In our faith, there are different words used for "sin." My assumption is that not all of those different words point to the same notion or mean the same thing. There must be nuances when it comes to the concept of "sin." However, at this point, I have one simple question: Can we sin against animals and trees? In your replies, please use narrations from our Imams (عليه السلام), and if possible please post the Arabic texts of narrations, too, so I could see what's the word used for "sin" when it comes to animals and
  9. سلام Who exactly are the علوج? All disbelievers? Or a specific type of disbelievers? What is the nuanced definition of علج? Thank you!
  10. سلام Recently, I've been pondering the following question: Are our human souls, the organizing essential force within us, gendered? In other words, are there male and female souls? I know in Qur'an, 51:49, Allah states that He's created all things in pairs. Does this include souls, too? I assume "everything" implies everything that exists. Any acceptable narrations on this issue? Thank you!
  11. According to our beliefs, the Sunni practice of Tarawih is bi'dah since the Prophet did not pray this type of namaz. Yet, us Shia do ma'tam and claim for it to be an act of sawab although Prophet Muhammad didn't do ma'tam either... So how can tarawih be haram/bidah yet matam is reccomended and halal.
  12. Aoa, i heard a shia scholar saying that every time a mother feeds her baby, she can ask for money from her husband, i later discussed that with my father and he said that it is not true. i just wanna know what does islam say about this.
  13. سلام When we say, لا حول و لا قوت الا بالله ، how should we understand the ب that comes before الله? Are there any ahadith from the Ahlul Bayt (as) that explain the relationship between ب and الله? Thank you!
  14. Are Wigs/Toupee/Extension made of human hair halal or not? the reference of the respective ruling will be appreciated. JazakALLAH
  15. Is it true that there is a share (of goodness or of reward?) for the one who helps or ables others to do goodness ?
  16. I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me a
  17. Salam to all! Can someone please help me clarify the age of Aisha during Nikah ceremony with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?
  18. Hi . I'm currently studying in Kuala Lumpur. I plan to return to my home back in Pakistan in a few days . I'll be staying there for over a month .i will be in travel for 12 hours . Is is okay if I don't fast for that day ?
  19. Asalaamu alaikum, In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful I have a question about chapter 16 (Surah An-Nahl), verse 66 in the Qur'an. The English translation is below, taken from https://quran.com/16/66: To my understanding this verse is talking about cows and how they produce milk for drinking. My question is actually concerning the latter part of the verse: This seems to imply that milk taken directly from cows is satisfactory for drinking. However, this page by the FDA clearly shows that drinking raw milk is dangerous for your health (i.e., not "palatabl
  20. Salam, What is the meaning of the phrase "The Self/Nafs Reaching the throat/Halq"? It is understood that this happens at the time of one's death. However, it is not clear why or how. How can one's nafs/being reach the throat, which is a part of the self? The throat is a body part, a physical place. Nafs/being is often seen or understood as a concept (or if it's translated as "soul," then it's immaterial, presumably.) So, how can a concept (a non-physical entity) reach a physical destination at the time of death? Thank you!
  21. I believe there should be no reason to elaborate further, it is as the title asks; What is your concept or idea of bad? and how do you define it?

  23. (( إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجسَ أَهلَ البَيتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُم تَطهِيراً )) (الاحزاب:33) I thought I understood this verse as رجس mean shirk but looking at it again after awhile I don't understand what is rigs رجس that Allah want to purify ahlylbate from ! thanks in advance .
  24. Salam alaykum everyone I am asking for guidance here as I have nobody else to go to. I have a non Muslim friend that has always been interested in me. I always declined his offerings since he isn't Muslim. We still are friends though. I always hoped that he would revert to Islam since I want everyone I care for to see the truth. I never talked about it with him since I don't want to manipulate him I want him to see it himself. Lately he has been talking about converting to Islam, and talking about the possibility of us getting married. I am afraid that he is
  25. In reply to some one who posed Imam Ali (as) a difficult question, Imam Ali (as) said : 'Ask in order to understand, and do not ask in order to find fault, for surely the ignorant man who wants to learn resembles a man of knowledge, and surely a man of knowledge who wants to be difficult resembles an ignorant man who wants to find fault.
