  1. Click here to view this message in a browser window. In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful Predicting the Crescent Moon of the Month of Ramadan 1441, A.H. إعلان تمهيدي بشأن هلال شهر رمضان ١٤٤١هـــ To the respected believers in North America, Peace be upon you. According to astronomical data, the predominant possibility for the first day of the blessed month of Ramadan this year will be on Saturday, April 25, 2020 for all regions of North America. (See visibility curve below.) For the believers residing in Southern California and regions in the vicinity, there is a very low possibility of sighting the crescent moon in San Diego during the sunset of Thursday, April 23rd. If sighted, this would make Friday the beginning of the month for those areas only. We hope that the respected believers will patiently wait for the announcement by the Crescent Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America, which will be issued late Thursday. May the peace, mercy, and blessings of God be upon you. On behalf of the Crescent Committee, Sayyid M. Rizvi, Secretary-General Notes: To learn about our basis for determining the beginning of lunar months and the theory about the unity of horizons, click here.

  2. This is only one of the many poems of Mawlana Jalaluddin Balkhi/Rumi on Fasting: What hidden sweetness there is in this emptiness of the belly! Man is surely like a lute, no more and no less; For if, for instance, the belly of the lute becomes full, no lament high or low will arise from that full lute. If your brain and belly are on fire through fasting, because of the fire every moment a lament will arise from your breast. Every moment you will burn a thousand veils by that fire; you will mount a hundred steps with zeal and endeavor. Become empty of belly, and weep entreatingly like the reed pipe; become empty of belly, and tell secrets with the reed pen. If your belly is full at the time of concourse, it will bring Satan in place of your reason, an idol in place of the Kaaba. When you keep the fast, good manners gather together before you like slaves and servants and retinue. Keep the fast, for that is Solomon’s ring; give not the ring to the dıv, destroy not your kingdom. Even if your kingdom has gone from your hand and your army has fled, your army will rise up, pennants flying above them. The table arrived from heaven to the tents of the fast, by the intervention of the prayers of Jesus, son of Mary. In the fast, be expectant of the table of bounty, for the table of bounty is better than the broth of cabbages. Persian: زهی حلاوت پنهان در این خلای شکم مثال چنگ بود آدمی نه بیش و نه کم چنانک گر شکم چنگ پر شود مثلا نه ناله آید از آن چنگ پر نه زیر و نه بم اگر ز روزه بسوزد دماغ و اشکم تو ز سوز ناله برآید ز سینه‌ات هر دم هزار پرده بسوزی به هر دمی زان سوز هزار پایه برآری به همت و به قدم شکم تهی شو و می نال همچو نی به نیاز شکم تهی شو و اسرار گو به سان قلم چو پر شود شکمت در زمان حشر آرد به جای عقل تو شیطان به جای کعبه صنم چو روزه داری اخلاق خوب جمع شوند به پیش تو چو غلامان و چاکران و حشم به روزه باش که آن خاتم سلیمان است مده به دیو تو خاتم مزن تو ملک به هم وگر ز کف تو شد ملک و لشکرت بگریخت فرازآید لشکرت بر فراز علم رسید مایده از آسمان به اهل صیام به اهتمام دعاهای عیسی مریم به روزه خوان کرم را تو منتظر می باش از آنک خوان کرم به ز شوربای کلم
  3. Salaam Alaikum, I had a question please about fasting. Since I started fasting 13 days ago every single day I get gagging (feel to vomit but nothing coming out) throughout the fast 3-4 times a day at least. On Saturday I threw up after my fast and didn’t fast on Monday. I started fasting again yesterday and the same problem is happening. Please can you advise me on what I shall do? Thank you so much.
  4. Hello. I am a Sunni and I have noticed that that Shias' Sahoor time ends before Sunnis and their Iftar ends after Sunnis. My question is, what method is used to find out the timings of Ramadan Iftar and Sahoor in Shia Islam ? Thanks.
  5. Salam Alaykum InshaAllah everyone is well and safe. and may the almighty accept your duas and fast is this blessed month. there are some files I recorded for this blessed month. (they're raw and rough, I don't know if they qualify for the definition of podcast) they are about Qur'an's verses, and relatively short (maximum 3 minutes) WSalam
  6. Assalamu Aleykom brothers and sisters, I was searching for a list of recommended practices of Ramadan. I'm still young so I didn't know what kind of mustahab acts I could do, this is my first serious Ramadan. I did not find such a list though. But I did find an article on wikishia but, for me at least, it was hectic. I prefer a file with all the text and practices within it... so I made one! I took me a lot of time to make it but... alhamdulillah. Almost all was taken from wikishia so you can go there if you prefer that: http://en.wikishia.net/view/Practices_of_Ramadan Please let me know if I made any errors or if you have any suggestions. Feel free to share it, print it whatever! Ramadan mubarak to all, may Allah hear out all your prayers and forgive all of your sins. ~File download~
  7. Hi everyone, I have made an android app for ramadhan, feel free to use it and share it with others: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.app.laylatalkader Thanks and ramdhan kareem to everyone.
  8. I reverted to Islam in December 2006. I have been doing ghusl wrong all these years by ignorance, not from laziness. I would make niyyat and wash my body, but never knew I had to wet my hair. So, because of my ignorance, do I have to do over, to make up and redo all my prayers of the past and all my fasts of the months of Ramadhan for the past 6 years? Jazakallah khairan for your answer! (wasalam)
  9. Salam, I had a question regarding missed days of fasting. I had a combined total of 121 days of fasting missed from the year 2010 to the year 2015. I had intentionally not fasted. I have been fasting every Ramadan since the year 2016. I started to make up the days that I missed starting in the year 2016, before the Ramadan of 2016, and was able to complete all 121 missed days before the start of Ramadan for the year 2019. I have not done anything else to make up my fasts other than fasting the days that I missed. What exactly is my kaffarah? I am a muqallid of Ayatollah Sistani. I went on Ayatollah Sistani’s website to figure out what exactly I had to do in order to become current on my fasts, but I got confused. I would really appreciate it if I can get guidance on what I exactly need to do. I regret not fasting on those days and I would like to fix it. Thank you.
  10. Its still early in the morning and there is 12 more hours and a half left to fast, but I’m leaving to go to work soon and will be there for most of the day. I already feel faint and because of the physical activity at work, I fear that I will pass out. Is this a valid enough reason to drink some water and break my fast without having to to kaffarah? Can I just fast it qatha?
  11. As a part of our annual tradition here on ShiaChat, we're making this thread to serve as a repository for Ramadan-themed lectures given by our Shi'I scholars during this holy month of Ramadhan, in the 1440th year after hijra (or 2019 on the Gregorian calendar). Share lectures of whatever language you understand, but please do strive to keep them limited to the Ramadan and pre-Ramadan lectures of this year! For previous years, feel free to browse through the links below and get back into the Ramadan mood!
  12. https://metro.co.United Kingdom/2019/05/10/Ramadan-is-my-chance-to-be-a-Muslim-woman-on-my-own-terms-9462936/ Saw this article and thought that it would be interesting to see how you would respond to the question 'Ramadhan is my chance to...' Personally, Ramadhan is my chance to connect with Allah and feel proud of my religion in a time when we are made to feel ashamed and inferior all the time. So, what does Ramadhan give you a chance to do or be?
  13. The Shia community in the Netherlands suddenly changed the calculation method of the prayer times (switching to the Islamic istitute of hamburg) and fajr is halfway through Ramadan at 2:00 am now (it would have been 3:11 on the same day with the old calculation method) So I wondered how long do you guys fast and where do you live. And I was questioning who do I have to follow cause according to the local (Shia) mosque fajr would still be at 3:11 but the majority of the Shia community agreed on the calculation method of hamburg .
  14. I changed from Sunni to Shia a few months ago. I understand that the exact moment of sunset is not the right time for maghrib and iftar as I think it is that the the orb of light of the sun also needs to go down. I have been adding ten minutes to sunset for maghrib up to this point but I would like to be more precise for iftar. I do not have a local Shia centre as I live in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Also I don't know anywhere I can see the sun set without buildings being in the way. Thanks, for your help.
  15. as salaam alakim!!!!!! As the holy Month of Ramadan come closer, should I fast on medication? like taking them before dawn? What happens if I have to take them in the morning? I did that last year, I wonder what are some opionion is this. Any Marjas?
  16. 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
  17. salam everyone my eid is on saturday. i currently live in sydney and it takes me an hour and a half to get to wollongong. am i valid to fast? i follow sistani and i know according to him, you cannot fast when travelling far.
  18. Al-Salamu Alaykum Yo, I just wanna know what I need to work on because it's the Holy Month. I accept all criticism, so I won't get mad. Be honest. Peace
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. I want to know whether i am still in fast as my gums were bleeding and i didnt know and some of it i have swollowed.. please someone who can answer me with respected proof.. thank you
  24. 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.
