  1. Salam, I am a follower of Ayatollah Saanei living in the UK. I'm having trouble finding out when it is he has declared Ramadan to begin (in the UK) this year. If anyone can let me know or point me in the correct direction I will be very grateful. Also, I find it rather difficult to stay up to date with his fatwas as his website is barely ever updated. If anyone can let me know how I can stay up to date with his rulings, it will be very helpful Thank you

    My First Ramadan

    Salam Aleykum. As you are all aware we are getting closer and closer to the start of Ramadan and being a Muslim for seven months Alhumdulilah, this will be my first experience. I am trying to collect as much knowledge as I can ranging from a general guides, practices, laws and would love to know even some of your own personal tips and tricks during this holy month. Looking forward to reading all of your answers.

    Umrah from USA in Ramadan

    Salam, My husband and I would like to go for Umrah this year. I was wondering if anyone can recommend any shia travel agencies that can help us from the US? I would prefer one in Texas, but open to anywhere in the US. Does anyone know of any shia groups going to Umrah during Ramadan? And is it permissible to do Umrah during Ramadan? We just want to go for a maximum of 3 days, possibly the last 3 days of Ramadan.

    New moon for eid al fitr

    Assalamo alaikom and eid mubarak for those celebrating, After the iftar I got in a heated discussion about the eid and the moon. So I'm pretty straightforward, I do not follow any school or marja when it comes to this issue. I follow the moon in my place only (belgium). I visited three official (astronomical, meteorological) sites that all tell me that the moon cycle ended the 24th june and the new cycle starts the 25th (1% visible) and thus it implicates that the eid is the 25th. Now, because it's only 1% visible some of my friends insisted that we should only declare eid when we can see it with the naked eye. But why go to the struggle if the highly-accurate machine can do it for me? I know it's kinda stupid to argue over one extra day of fasting, but it bugged my quite a bit so I really want to know? Thanks for your attention Wassalam

    Help with Zakat al Fitr

    Salamualaykum Does anyone know how centres and organisations distribute Zakat al Fitr? As in, my Marja says that at least 3.5kg worth should be given per poor person. ALL centres that we have here in the UK follow Maraja who state that 3kg is enough. I have messaged the centre asking them to pay 3.5kg worth on our behalf, but I'm not sure if they will do it. My question is: Does the method in which organisations distribute Zakat al Fitr cover my requirements already? How much do they give each poor person? I have a strong feeling that I'm missing something here. Hope I'm making sense Thanks in advance, any help will be appreciated. Wassalam

    Laylat Al Qadr

    Salam brothers & sisters, I would like to get informations about prayers in the last 10 days of ramadan. Should we do Ghusls before prayers or just wudu ? I know it's musta7ab to perform +/- 100x rak3at but how should we do them ? 2x rak3at/prayers or 4x rak3at/prayers ? and what are the surahs we should recite ? Thank you.

    Travelling in Ramadan

    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 ?
  11. Salam Alykom I've always thought that Sayyed Khamenei was clear on his view that Maghreb (and when you are able to break your fast) is when the redness disappears from the eastern sky. However according to a Sheikh here in Sweden, Sayyed Khamenei allows you to follow another marja in this regard and therefore you can follow a marja that allows you to break your fast at sunset. Is Sayyed Khamenei's fatwa "Ihtiyat wajib" (obligatory precaution)? I've always thought he had a clear fatwa about this (and therefore you cannot follow another marja in this regard). Anyone who knows more about this, and if it's correct?

    Too tired to Fast

    Salam. The problem is, I find it very difficult to fast. It's very hot in the city that I reside in in Pakistan, and fasting leaves me with really no energy. Add to that the fact that I'm under-weight and you can imagine how difficult it has become for me. Even though I'm on vacations, I've been unable to do anything productive except laying around until late afternoon doing nothing. This is taking a toll on my life. Can I skip fast(s) to help with this? I'm not medically sick - no nausea or drowsiness, just feel tired and totally drained of energy to the point of uselessness.

    ramadan dua.

    Salam brothers and sisters. we all heard once at least that Ramadan is the best time for duas to get accepted. Is it true ? And if so, is it not selfish ? Because we should do things to get closer to God, and making dua for our own desires (I'am not talking about the ones where we ask God forgiveness and thank Him), is it not considered as selfish ? Thank you very much.

    State of Janaba

    Salem aleykum brothers and sisters, Please bear with me as I have afew things to get through. Discussing this topic is quite intimidating and embarrassing, hence why I haven't managed to pluck up the courage to seek out help and knowledge untill now. And I would like it if you were a little considerate with your answers please, Thank you. So, my topic is Janaba from masturbation. It all started around a year ago when I first started this bad habit, it was out of curiosity initially but eventually became an addiction. At that time of the year I was in a very depressed state, often thinking about suicide ( for no particular reason.) The urge was strong but I never went ahead with it because I did not want to think that I have become hopeless of my creator. I was aware that suicide was haram and it is irreversible. So, i would often just try and find ways to feel better to get rid of those thoughts. and I guess that's where the idea of masturbation came from ( since medically it's seen as stress relieving etc.) Though I knew masturbation is haram but I had to weigh up the odds of it taking me out of that mindset of suicide (which is irreversable)(and yes i know there are better ways but barely anything worked for me at the time) And it was only intended as temporary thing. But it became a horrible addiction pretty soon that continued for the past year. It started to make me depressed even more because I knew I was disobeying Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì and prayed for help +repented. But after a while I gave up. Because even after I would repent out of guilt and said I wouldn't do it, I did it again. Nonetheless, I eventually managed to cut down the activity (pretty much stopped it) but then again I can never be to sure of myself. All I am sure of is that I want to do whatever I can to compensate for my actions so they may be pardoned. I know that closeness to Allah (Praises be to him) is the only thing that can give me peace in its entirety. Alhamdulilah, this Ramadan has been a blessing and really healing for me so far. However, I made the mistake again last night after a streak of going quite a long time without it(for me.) If there is any time of the year to kick evil habits it is Ramadan. Inshallah, I will continue to try. If you if you have any Duas, recommendations etc for this sort of thing,that would be really helpful. Now for my real question: all of this past year that I have been praying etc is without ghusl of Janaba. My fasts up untill now were without them too. Its not that i lack islamic knowledge generally, I do often seek it and practice it. However, I never came across Janaba in regards to woman doing them. I didn't know State of Janaba was a thing! Im not that old to be married. it's not a topic that is taught to young girls because I guess it is assumed they will do not masturbate. (Unlike males where it is kind of expected of them so they are prewarned about it.) Even online there isn't much about females in this sort of area. Firstly I'm still unsure and confused, can a female enter state of Janaba through masturbation? If so that means that I have been impure while doing my fasts and prayers up untill now. I am concerned as to what I should do about the fasts i have kept this Ramadan so far. Do they count? Should I make up for them? What about my salah? A whole year worth of my salah is invalidated? Do I have to redo them? Bearing in mind I didn't start regularly praying till like 14/15 or so. (Wasn't religious/ didn't understand my religion well) though alhamdulillah God guided me eventually and discover the sweeteness of salah. I have always intended to makeup those 5 years but don't know how and never got around to it. And now will another year's worth be added on to it? How can I make it possible to complete them with every day responsibilities like School, work etc. I apologise for the lengthy post but the reason why I described everything was maybe if any of you find faults in my thinking or ways maybe able to point out and help. Help a sister out of ignorance. Thank you for your time and may Allah send his mercy and blessings on all of you and your families this Ramadan. Inshallah
  16. Salaams, This year , Ramadhan has fallen on a very important study and exam period of mine as these exams will determine whether I get into University. Due to this, I haven't been fasting as having water improves my concentration whilst learning. I tried fasting and struggled to concentrate, got very tired and struggled to understand concepts. It was my niyyah to fast this month, and every morning I make an intention to fast, but then break my fast saying it is hard for me to study. I do taqleed of Ayotallah Sistani, who says break the fast when it is unbearable, and I find it unbearable to study without any water or energy. I tried fasting at night but struggled a lot as Im not an evening person and have never been able to study in the evening. I live in the UK where the fasts are 19 hours long, so it becomes very difficult for me. Could you advise me on whether I should be paying kaffarah on this and what I should do? Thank you

    Mr.

    Salaam, as an ex-smoker I use a vape pen to satisfy my cravings, I was wondering if vaping whilst fasting would invalidate my fast? I've tried looking around for fatwas but I can find them regarding smoking, not vaping. Can anyone help me out? Jazakallah

    New ramadan nasheed 2017

    Salam my dear brothers and sisters, I just thought I would take this opportunity to share with you a beautiful new Ramadan nasheed. If you like it then share it with family and friends. It's in Arabic but with English translations. I wish you all a happy and blessed ramadan.
  20. (bismillah) Assalamualikum. My husband and I are new to Shia Islam, and we have some questions about fasting. I have looked around this forum at similar posts and only grown more confused, so if someone could please spell out the answers clearly, that would be wonderful. 1. I will be traveling in the Middle East for 10 days this Ramadan. Is it okay if I do not fast those 10 days (and make up the fasts later)? 2. For the rest of Ramadan and beyond, I will be working in New York City. My daily commute is 2 hours by train each way, plus some time on the subway. I read something about 30km being the limit for traveling while fasting, and if that limit is exceeded, fasts become invalid. Is that true? Do I really have to not fast because of my long commute? What are the rules for fasting while traveling? 3. My husband is an Uber driver. His work hours are 10pm-7am. He is constantly driving for all of the shift. Would his fasts be invalid? What should he do if that is the case? We can't just not work for the entirety of Ramadan. 4. Before I became Shia, I had converted to a different denomination of Islam from atheism a few years before, and I could never fast all of Ramadan because my body got too sick to function. After a few weeks I would give up on fasting and instead donate a lot of food to the local soup kitchen. Is that permissible in Shia Islam? Should we just donate food in place of fasting because we have to be traveling constantly during Ramadan? 5. How do prayers work on a plane? I've never had to deal with praying while changing time zones before. Jazakallah khair in advance!

    Fasting in Weekends

    Hello ShiaChat. I have a question regard fasting in weekends only. I live in Denmark - the fasting hours are long here and i work 37/h per week, and i may not be as strong as my parents are - but last year i fasted, but i slept through the entire day, and i felt that my fast wasnt accepted. So my question is - is it not better to fast in weekends and do a complete fast with praying etc, waking up in proper time and enjoying the fasting day.

  24. In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful A reminder on rulings regarding Qadha’ (make-up) fasts and offering Fidyah and Kaffarah (expiation for missing fasts) قبل حلول رمضان: أهم أحكام القضاء والفدية والكفارة. إضغط هنا لقراءة التفاصيل Qadha’ Fasting: If one has missed any days of fasting during the month of Ramadhan in the previous year, then it is a recommended precaution to make up those fasts before the next month of Ramadhan. If one has days of fast to make up, but intentionally does not make them up before the next month of Ramadhan, the person is still held religiously liable (to make the days up at a later time) and must offer a Fidyah for each day missed by feeding one poor person (as defined by the religious criteria). Those Unable to Fast: Those incapable of fasting, such as the elderly, those who cannot fast due to illness, and those who go through desperate situations temporarily preventing them from fasting, such as some pregnant women and some nursing mothers, must offer the Fidyah. The Fidyah is feeding one poor person for each day in which fasting was missed during the month of Ramadhan. Fidyah and the Kaffarah: Fidyah: A compensation paid for not being able to fast. It is to feed one poor person for each day. The one who is incapable of fasting, thus, offers thirty meals to the poor. The Kaffarah for delaying the Qadha’ fasting: To feed a poor person for each day, in addition to being obligated to perform the Qadha’ fast. The Kaffarah for intentionally breaking one’s fast during the month of Ramadhan: Either fasting for sixty days, or feeding sixty poor persons, for each day missed. It is permissible to offer the entire Fidyah to a single poor person, but the Kaffarah of feeding sixty persons must be offered to distinct individuals. When it comes to the Fidyah and the Kaffarah, nothing but “feeding” suffices. As for how much food, it is the average amount which we usually feed ourselves and our families. According to Islamic law, it must be the equivalent of at least 1.65 lbs. (750 grams) of wheat, rice or dates. It is permissible to pay money with the condition of delegating to the appropriate entity, or trustworthy person, or the poor person him/herself, so long as one feels assured that the food will be bought and offered. It is not permissible to purchase anything but food with the money. Qadha Fasts (text copied from this link)

    Ramadan in the Quran

    Salam 3alaikum I am currently writing my last paper for my religion class. I had to choose a certain holiday or 'ritual' and write about it. In this paper, I chose to write about Ramadan. I also have to interview someone in this regard because I'm not allowed to use myself. The thing is I have to base my interview questions solely on passages from the Quran. I know the reason for why we as Muslims fast, but I can't find all of the places in the Quran where Ramadan and fasting are mentioned. So my question is, do you know which verses in the Quran mention the above? Thank you and Jazakum Allah Khair in advance!
