    Ramadhan Android Application

    Salam alaykom my brothers and sisters, I have a made an android ramadhan application a couple of years ago and have continually updated it and updated it couple of days ago. The app has the Quran in it and also daily supplications and things to do the nights of alkadr. The app is in Arabic. Please feel to download the application. Name of the app is: ادعية رمضان واعمال ليالي القدر And this is the link to download it on Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.app.laylatalkader If you do find it helpful, please do share it with your friends and family. Your brother Jaffer, Siyam makbool Inshallah
  2. 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
  3. Can a person with type 2 diabetes perform fasting, is it safe to do so? thank you!

    Duaa in ramadhan

    Assalamualaikum I want to ask something since I'm still new here in shia Islam. I found soo many good dua in the website that would be good if we recite it on the night of Ramadhan. But I found myself overwhelmed if I have to recite all those dua in one night. Would you recommend what good dua for me?
  5. As-salaamu alaykum, Today I slept past fajr time accidentally in a state of junub, approximately an hour past. It wasn't my intention to sleep at all, however I had simply fallen asleep without intention. My intention was always to do ghusl before fajr time, yet I wasn't able to do this as shown above. Do I now have to pay kaffarah, or simply one qadha fast? Also, is there any chance my fast is still valid considering I did ghusl as soon as I woke up?
  6. Alsalam alaykom brothers and sisters, I just wanted to share with you an app that I made which includes the whole quran, supplications for each day, supplications and doings of laylat alkader and other useful information. Though the application is only in Arabic and it is free of cost and free of ads. Here is the link for those who want to download it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.app.laylatalkader I hope you find it useful. Share it with family and friends and please don't forget me in your prayers. Your brother Jaffer Alfahdawi.

  10. Salam. My friend and I are debating whether Kaffarah fasting counts in Ramadan. Basically, if a person breaks an oath, and is not able to: free a slave / feed sixty poor / etc. just as Ramadan is arriving, then do his 3 consecutive fasts count? Regardless of Ramadan fasts being wajib/compulsory?
  11. Salam. What's the best thing to do in your opinion regarding breaking iftar before or after prayers? I thought of doing it after prayers, because otherwise I would lose my concentration (think about the food), and I would also like to read duas etc. which would take like, 15 min extra, and I would delay the sitting with my family. But then we have the talk about "praying on time". Hm.. I don't know what I exactly should do. Maybe pray maghrib first, short duas, and then eat, and then pray again. But, what do you do?
  12. Can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/user/UnityLectures/videos 9 Lectures in total, Lectures continue until Monday if you can make it to Manchester, UK. We also have a dinner on the Tuesday with him for those interested.
  13. Ramadan: A Month of Quranic Education and Spirituality, by Syed Muhammad Hossein Fadlallah: http://english.bayynat.org/occasions/Ramadan_QuranicEducationSpirituality.htm
  14. Salaams, I am a follower of Ayatullah Sistani (as). My situation is as follows, I want to attend a protest in the holy month of Ramadan, the venue is 30 miles away and I pray Qasr there. If I leave after Zuhr, and return before Maghrib will my fast be accepted? If it is not accepted, is it Haraam for me to go there? Thanks in advance JazakAllah Khair
  15. (Bismillah) (Salam) I would like to share a Dua daily for the whole month of Ramadhan. If anyone else would like to contribute, please do so. Thank you! The Dua'as I share will need a transliteration, if anyone can, kindly share it So others may benefit. JazakAllah khayr Day 1: بسم الله الرحمن ارحيم اللهم اجعل صيامي فيه صيام اصاءمين وقيامي فيه قيام اقاءمين ونبهني فيه عن نومة الغافلين وهب لي جرمي فيه يا اله العالمين واعف عني يا عافيا عن المجر مين اللهم صلى على محمد وال محمد Translation: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, The Merciful. O Allah, on this day, make my fast the fasts of those who fast (sincerely). & my standing up in prayer of those who stand up in prayer (obediently). Awaken me in it from the sleep of the heedless. & forgive my sins, O God of the worlds. O Allah, bless Mohammed & the family of Mohammed.

    Knowing Your Creator

    The Creator has graced us with another month of Ramadan, the greatest month of all. This should remind us of where we were in the last Ramadan and how much progress we have made since then. The sign of an intelligent and wise person is that they analyze their progression every year, every month, and every day of their life. Times like these provide us and facilitate us with an opportunity to re-analyze ourselves.

  17. Sunni Brothers, I've a question, please don't get angry or start cursing. This is just a question, I really want to learn. Why Sunnis love the known enemies of the Prophet (pbuh) ? Some examples of Sunnis loving the enemies of Prophet are: 1. Sunnis love Aisha who used to hurt, taunt, hate, waged war on Prophet's Ahlulbayt. 2. Sunnis love Umer who said he will kill the prophet right before he converted. 3. Sunnis love Khalid bin Walid who was the leader of the Kuffar in Battle of Ohud. 4. Sunnis love Muawiah who waged wars on prophet until the conquest of Makkah. 5. Sunnis love Abu Sufyan who was the leader of Kuffar of Makkah until the conquest of Makkah. Yes Prophet (pbuh) forgave them after the conquest of Makkah, but the question is, "Did they Forgive the Prophet for bringing Islam to the people"?
  18. I was reading things online and I am confused about travelling rules and fasting during the month of Ramadhan. Last Monday, I left my house at 10:30am (after fajr) to reach my parents' house around 1:15pm (after zhur), which is about 145 km (90 miles) away from my house. I left my parents' house Tuesday afternoon at 5pm to reach my house at about 7pm. I fasted on both Monday and Tuesday. When I'm at my parents' house, I always offer full prayers. Were my fasts valid or do I have to make them up? What is the limit (km/mi) for it to be considered a travel? Am I supposed to offer shortened prayers when i go to my parents'? Jazakallah Khairan for your answers! (wasalam)
  19. Salam Bros/Sisters, InshaAllah your Ramadhan is blessed. I've been reading various spiritual posts on SC and thought you might have a clue to a few things I wanted to ask about. 1. I try reading Ziarat-e-Ashura daily. Now I want to read Ziarat-e-Ashura for certain days for some special dua to Allah swt. Do you know the procedure? Do I have to say 100 Laan and 100 salams? Does it has to be 40 days? Can it be for say 3 days or 10 days? If one of you have a particular procedure written somewhere, please do share. 2. Those of you who have witnessed one, what ONE specific act which caused you to receive the noor of Allah swt? Was it your Istighfar or Shukr or Salat or any particula Dua that you read every day, or your lowering your gaze, or your some particualr civil service? Thanks for reading and responding.
  20. بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ bi-smi llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm May this Month of Ramadhan [2013] be filled with Allah's blessing's, and full of forgiveness & guidance for you and your family, Insha'Allah. This is one of my favorite English translation's, because of the eloquence in which it was written. THE SERMON GIVEN BY THE PROPHET (S) ON THE LAST FRIDAY OF SHA'BAAN ON THE RECEPTION OF THE MONTH OF RAMADHAN Philosophy and Ahkaam: The following incident has been narrated by al-Saduq on pp. 84-85 of his Al-Amali thus: Muhammad ibn Ibrahim says that Ahmed ibn Muhammad-al- Hamadani says that Ali ibn al-Hassan ibn Fadal quotes his father quoting al-Hassan's father Imam Ali bin Musa al-Rida (as) who in turn quotes his father Imam Musa ibn Ja'fer (as) quoting his father the master of martyrs Imam al-Husain ibn Ali ibn Abu Talib (as) saying that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) delivered a sermon once in which he said: O people! A month has approached you laden with blessing, mercy and forgiveness; it is a month which Allah regards as the best of all months. Its days, in the sight of Allah, are the best of days; its nights are the best of nights; its hours are the best of hours. It is a month in which you are invited to be the guests of Allah, and you are regarded during it as worthy of enjoying Allah's Grace. Your breathing in it praises the Almighty, and your sleeping adores Him. Your voluntary acts of worship are accepted, and your pleas are answered. Ask Allah your Lord, therefore, in sincere intentions and pure hearts to enable you to fast during it and to recite His Book, for only a wretch is the one who is deprived of Allah's forgiveness during this great month. And let your hunger and thirst during it remind you of the hunger and thirst of the Day of Resurrection. Give alms to the poor and indigent among you; surround your elderly with respect, and be kind to your youngsters. Visit your kin and safeguard your tongues, and do not look at what Allah has prohibited you from seeing, and do not listen to anything your ears are forbidden to hear. Be kind to the orphans of others so that your own orphans will equally receive kindness. Repent your sins to Allah and raise your hands to Him in supplication during the times of your prayers, for they are the best times during which the Almighty looks with mercy to His servants and answers their pleas when they plead to Him. O people! Your souls are pawned by your deeds; therefore, release them by seeking Allah's forgiveness. Your backs are over-burdened by the weight of your sins; therefore, lighten their burden by prolonging your prostration. Be informed that the Exalted and Almighty has sworn by His Dignity not to torture those who perform their prayers and prostrate to Him, and not to terrify them by the sight of the fire when people are resurrected for judgment. O people! Whoever among you provides iftar to a believer during this month will receive a reward equal to one who sets a slave free, and all his past sins will be forgiven. Having said so, people said to him: "O Messenger of Allah! Not all of us can do that!" He (pbuh), thereupon, responded by saying: Shun the fire of hell even by half a date! Shun the fire of hell even by a drink of water! O People! Whoever among you improves his conduct during this month will have a safe passage on al-Sirat al-Mustaqeem, (the straight path) when many feet will slip away, and whoever among you decreases the burdens of his slave (or anyone who works for him) will be rewarded by Allah decreasing his reckoning. Whoever among you abstains from harming others will be spared the Wrath of the Almighty when he meets Him. Whoever among you affords generosity to an orphan will be rewarded by Allah being generous to him on the Day of Judgment. Whoever among you improves the ties with his kin will be rewarded by Allah including him in His mercy, and whoever among you severs his ties with his kin, Allah will withhold His mercy from him upon meeting Him. Whoever among you offers voluntary prayers, Allah will decree a clearance for him from the torment of the fire. Whoever among you performs an obligation will receive the reward of one who has performed seventy obligations in other months. Whoever among you increases the sending of blessings unto me, Allah will make the balance of his good deeds weigh heavily when scales will be light. Whoever among you recites one verse of the Holy Qur'an will receive the blessing of one who recites the entire Holy Qur'an in another month. O people! The gates of heaven in this month are kept open; so, pray Allah your Lord not to close them against you, and the gates of the fire are kept closed; so, pray Allah your Lord not to open them for you; and the devils are kept chained; therefore, pray Allah your Lord not to unleash them against you. Advising the great Sahabi Abu Tharr al-Ghifari, may Allah be pleased with him, regarding the fast being a protection against the fire, he (pbuh) is quoted saying, "Shall I inform you of a deed which, if you do it, will keep Satan away from you as much as the distance between the east of the earth and the west?" People answered, "O yes, indeed, O Messenger of Allah!" He (pbuh) said, "Fast darkens his (Satan's) face; alms break his back; the desire to please Allah and the giving of assistance to do good deeds cut his tail off, and seeking Allah's forgiveness cuts off his aorta." Then he added, "For everything there is a purification (zakat), and the purification of bodies is the fast." He (pbuh) is also quoted saying, "One who fasts is considered to be adoring his Creator even while sleeping on his bed as long as he does not backbite any Muslim." He (pbuh) has also said, 'There are two merry occasions for anyone who performs the fast: one when he breaks his fast, and one when he meets his Lord, the Exalted, the Almighty. I swear by the One Who controls Muhammad's life, the excess on the mouth of one who fasts is better in the sight of Allah than the sweet smell of musk." He (pbuh) has also said that the Exalted and Almighty has said (in a Qudsi hadith) that all good deeds of a descendant of Adam are His (to reward) "except the fast, for it is mine, and I shall reward for it. All good deeds of the son of Adam are rewarded with ten to seven hundred times except perseverance, for it is mine and I reward for it." So, the knowledge of the rewards of perseverance is with Allah, and "perseverance" means fast. Regarding the interpretation of His saying (in the Holy Qur'an) "... and seek aid with perseverance," meaning the fast, it is reported that the person who fasts enjoys the gardens of Paradise and the angels keep praying for him till he breaks his fast. If a believer stands during a portion of the night to perform additional optional prayers, then he wakes up fasting, no sin will be recorded against him. Whenever he takes one step, it will be recorded as a good deed for him, and if he dies during daytime, his soul will ascend the heights of heaven. If he lives to break his fast, the Almighty will consider him among those who often return to Him for forgiveness. In the book titled Thawab al-A'mal, relying on the authority of Abu Abdullah who quotes his forefathers, peace be upon all of them, the author, namely Shaikh al-Qummi al-Saduq, quotes one tradition indicating that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) has said, "The sleep of someone fasting is like adoration, and his breath praises the Almighty." Ramadhan Kareem Mubarak to ALL of you and your family! Your Sister in Faith, (wasalam) AB313
  21. Salamun Alaikum Brothers and Sisters. I had to close my previous youtube channel MAFHHZB for some reasons, but looking at the ongoing onslaught of the Ansars of the Fake Mahdi/Yamani/Imam/Qaim/AllegedSonofHujjatibnHassan(a.s.) on the internet confusing and deviating furthermore people, I regretted having the only stand in video format against their deceits and lies also removed. Hence I have made a new channel and re-uploaded the Series. My research materials or my arguments are not scholars level, I am a laymen, but since no one decided to make anything in media format against their brainwashing, I carried forward my personal research and figured out their aqeedah can be toppled with simple logic based on their contradictory proofs and arguments. Allah guides whom He wills. This is a good case study for upcoming false mahdis, and people not interested in Mahdi claimant Ahmad Hassan in particular(whose actual name is Ahmad Ismail) but requiring a comprehensive general guideline for all mahdi claimants in the future, should begin watching from Ep 10 onwards instead. Scroll down to post #6 to begin watching. 4 Articles have been added after the 13 episodes, beginning from post #42, answering any important topics not touched upon in the series and reinforcing that which had been already conveyed to every heeding ear. May Allah protect us from deviation, and may He hasten the reappearance of our Imam[a], during this difficult period of trial and tribulation.

    Mistake While Making Ghusl

    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)
  23. Assalamu Alaikum brothers. Peace be upon you all insha Allah arrahmanirahim. I live in europe, and it is extremely difficult for me to restrain my eyes and desires. I am only 15, but the most I want in this world is to be a good servant of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. But here, it is a very normal thing for boys to masturbate and watch pornography. Some of my friends introduced me to pornography, who were also Muslims, and they said that it was okay since I am only fifteen, but now it is extremely hard to get away from it, especially when I have an overwhelming desire to masturbate. every time I see a woman or man, my mind automatically thinks about something bad. I have a difficulty making friends who are girls without having a unintentional desire for something else. I want to be a good muslim, be a servant of Imam Mahdi, and be worthy in the eyes of Imam Hussein, Imam Hassan, Imam Ali, and Prophet Muhammed, but I think that they would spit in my face if they ever saw me. I am ashamed of myself, but I cannot stop, what do I do? Another thing is that I start to get thoughts of woman in a bad way, and since there is so much homosexuality around me, homosexual thoughts pop into my head, I AM NOT GAY, but it happens, and they dont go away. The same with women. Please, anybody, I want to get away from it, but I dont know how. help me.
  24. May Allah help you in fasting these last few days of Ramadan! Unfortunately for many of us, our environment and work is not an excuse to stop fasting. If you have an vacation time or sick leave, or you can call in sick, etc, save it up for Ramadan. If you cannot, or if you are required to work in order to feed your family (you have no money saved or something of this nature), then you go to work and if you feel that you are about to pass out at any second (you have to be honest with yourself in this regard), then you drink some water to sustain yourself then keep on fasting. You will be required to make up this fast at a later date, preferably during the winter.
