  1. Salams, I would be very grateful if someone could clarify my understanding of Ayatollah Saanei’s presentation of the fadila prayer times discussed below. ووقت فضيلة الظهر من الزوال إلى بلوغ الظلّ الحادث مثل الشاخص، كما أنّ منتهى فضيلة العصر المِثلان، ومبدأ فضيلته إذا بلغ الظلّ أربعة أقدام ـ أي أربعة أسباع الشاخص ـ على الأظهر، وإن لا يبعد أن يكون مبدؤها بعد مقدار أداء الظهر.ووقت فضيلة المغرب من المغرب إلى ذهاب الشفق، وهو الحمرة المغربيّة، وهو أوّل فضيلة العشاء إلى ثلث اللّيل، فلها وقتا إجزاء: قبل ذهاب الشفق، وبعد الثلث إلى النصف. ووقت فضيلة الصبح من أوّله إلى حدوث الحُمرة المشرقيّة، ولعلّ حدوثها يساوق مع زمان التجلّل والإسفار وتنوّر الصُّبح المنصوص بها. Source: http://www.saanei.org/index.php?view=03,02,09,338,0 I would be very grateful for any help you can provide.
  2. Salam alaykum brothers and sister, Everyday we as Shia pray according to a general method of salat that is agreed upon by the majority of scholars. Albeit very minor differences concerning the details, the method of prayer appears to be well defined in the publications of the maraja and follows a specific fixed structure. My questions is concerning the sources used to understand the exact form of prayer. What are the ahadith of the Masomeen (pbut) that tell us which surah to recite, when to bow down, what to say in prostration etc. I have come across one famous hadith from Imam Jafar Sadiq (عليه السلام) transmitted by Hammad ibn Isa. I would be glad if anyone could provide me with further textual sources regarding this matter. Wassalam
  3. Salamu Alaikum In Tashahhud, there is a mustahhab part said after the salawat which is "wa taqabbal shafa'atuhu wa arfa' darajata" (وتقبل شفاعته وارفع درجته). My question is, I've seen many people and have done myself open hands as if it's a dua while saying this. Is this recommended, or even permissible?
  4. Bismillah i Rahman i Raheem Salaam un Alaikum I was recently told that the proper time to perform the Asr prayer is 2 hours after the Zuhr, according to Ayatollah Sistani. However, many Shia apps often tell me the time for Asr, about 4 hours after the Zuhr. I would like to know for sure what Ayatollah Sistani says about the timing of the Asr prayer. JazakAllah Alaikum us Salam
  5. I would like to share these gems with my fellow brothers and sisters. 9 different forms of praying for desires (halal and legitimate desires of course). They are taken from The Prayers Almanac (Mafatih-al-Jinaan). See cover below: I will post each of the 9 seperately - apologies for the quality. iltemas-e-dua.
  6. Salams 3laykum, Why do we as shia combine our prayers?? is there any Quranic verses or hadith stating anything about combining prayers to this reasoning?? Thank you Hamza
  7. Assalamualaikum, I will be traveling to the Middle East in a couple weeks in shaa Allah, and I have a bunch of questions regarding prayer. Keep in mind I am a relatively new convert, so please be patient with me. 1) I read that all prayers during travel are 2 rakat. What counts as "travel"? I will be traveling for around 14 days, going in between cities, staying a couple nights in each and going around either to nearby cities or exploring the city I am staying in each day. Is "travel" simply the plane rides and bus rides, or the whole trip, since I am not staying in the same place the whole time? 2) Part of my trip will be in Jerusalem, and I plan to pray at Al Aqsa in shaa Allah. I was warned by a Palestinian friend of mine, however, that it is very dangerous if I pray like a Shia there and I should do taqiyyah and perform my prayers like a Sunni. Given recent events, it is even more dangerous to be praying noticeable differently at Al Aqsa, as people might suspect me to be a Zionist actor and become violent. Do I have to make up prayers later that are performed in taqiyyah? 3) Just in general, what are the rulings on praying salat at a Sunni mosque with Sunnis? The nearest Shia mosque to me is 3 hours away, and I cannot drive. The nearest Sunni mosque is 15 minutes by bus. If I prayed Jummah there, would I follow the imam or do it the way we do it? Would I stand in line with all of the others, or just quietly do my own thing in the back? Background note, I am a woman, so since congregational Jummah prayers are not obligatory upon me, I have not been going to the mosque. 4) If I am in a situation where I am unable to find pure water or dust for wudu, should I pray anyway, or would they not count? Is impure water better than nothing? 5) What's up with sutrahs? Do we use those anymore, or does a prayer rug essentially outline the space necessary for salah? JazakAllah khair and thank you for your patience with me.
  8. Assalamualaikum, Is it better to do something that could be wajib but may be haram, or to abstain from it because it could be haram but may be wajib? Let me explain (brothers be warned, this is a menstruation question). I am a woman whose menstruation is unpredictable. I never know when it will start. Most of the time, blood is just very brief spotting rather than the start of a period, but obviously sometimes it's actually the start of menstruation. I also can't tell by the color or consistency of the blood which one it is. Whenever this happens, I'm always thrown into an ethical dilemma. Salat is wajib, but it's haram during menstruation. So I panic -- should I pray, or should I not pray? If I pray and I'm on my period, I have done something haram. But if I don't pray and it turns out I'm not on my period, I have done something haram. Normally after around 20 minutes of agonizing over this question, I opt to pray. Usually this is the right decision, but occasionally I am wrong. Rarely, I am confident that yes, I am in fact starting my period, and opt to not pray. I have been wrong, though. I am leaning towards that it is better to pray and be wrong than to not pray and be wrong. Would you agree or disagree?
  9. Salam I don’t know if this applies to all Shias but from what I am aware of in my community we only pray 3 times a day unlike other Muslims who prays 5 times a day. I think we combine prayers? Either way I have passed the age where children have to start praying and I don’t know how to. I can’t find any online Shi’a praying instructions only Sunni ways. And the amount of times isn’t the only difference, we do different gestures as well I think and we pray with a clay tablet too. Can someone give me instructions on how to pray like Shias?

  12. What is the criteria for a person to be called "tarik as-salah" (the one who abandon performing obligatory prayers)?
  13. Fakeha

    Make-up

    اسلام علىکم I thinks more of a western culture it is ,but can i have some advice on how to manage to offer salat when there is make-up all around the face and there is no way that forhead touches the turbat(سجده گاه)
  14. Salam. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the prayer times mentioned in this Quranic verse; Surah Ta ha Chapter 20 Verse 130: "So be patient over what they say and exalt [ Allah ] with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting; and during periods of the night [exalt Him] and at the ends of the day, that you may be satisfied." Here, "before the rising of the sun" refers to Fajr, "before its setting" refers to Asr, "during periods of the night" refers to Isha and "at the ends of the day" refers to Mahgrib. This is what I can understand from this verse but in this way aren't we talking about 4 prayer times instead of 3? Jazak Allah.

  16. Can anyone help me on, how to pray the prayer of Ja3far al Dayar? Thank you very much!
  17. Asalam Alaikom Brothers and Sisters, I have a question in regards to wudu. Today i received an injury on my right palm. The doctor said that I'm unable to wash the area. However, now my concern is that I am unable to perform wudu for my obligatory prayers. To my understanding and research I am able to perform wudu al jabireh, but that requires using my right hand to pour water on my face, arms etc. My question is, am I able to perform wudu using my left hand? If not, please provide me alternative ways. I do taqleed of seyid al Sistani. Wasalam, Servant of God

  19. Assalamualaikum, I am a new convert to Shia Islam. I have some questions about menstruation and salat. 1. Do we have to make up salat missed during menstruation, or is dhikr during the time of menstruation sufficient? 2. My period is very irregular, sometimes lasting full months at a time. Do I just not do salat for months? Or is there a time when it becomes permissible to do salat during menstruation? Thank you.
  20. Hello. I'm a woman in my mid 20's. I haven't told anyone this, but when I was around the age of 9 I somehow came across masturbation by myself, like it just happened, and I continued to occasionally do it as the years went on. I honestly didn't know what it was I was doing until I became a teenager. It wasn't until 2 years ago where I was on ayatollah sistani's website, that I learned that masturbation was haram in Islam and that it requires ghusl jinabat. I have been fasting and doing my prayers since the age of 9, but because I did not do ghusl, would that mean I have to make up all those years worth of fasts and prayers from the age of 9, even though I did not know what I was doing was haram and that I needed to do ghusl? What do I need to do? Thanks for your help

  22. I have learned Al-fatihah Al-ikhlas and Al-kawthar and trying to now learn the shia tashhahud, but I can not find a video showing how to pronounce these words, almost every video I find are sunni videos and if it is a shia one it's not slow enough and we'll pronounced so I can understand and actually learn it. does anyone know of or possibly could make a video to help me I only wish to be able to do salat on my own so I stop missing them and don't have to travel far to be able to do them. I live in American, Tennessee to be more exact and all the masjids around here are sunni and strongly have stand points of shi'ites. any help would be greatly appreciated. Assalamu alaikum wa ramatula wa baraktu
  23. Alsalamu Alaykum Firstly to reply this question, we shall know the cases which tayammum in accordance with them is obligatory to be performed. Perform Tayammum in place of Wudhu or Ghusl when: 1. Not enough water is available for Wudhu or Ghusl. 2. Obtaining water for Wudhu will endanger your life or property or you are unable to procure water by any means. 3. Using the available water will leave insufficient water for drinking and pose a risk of dying of thirst or illness, or difficulty for yourself or your dependents. 4. Washing your face and hands with water will endanger your health. 5. Water is available but you do not have permission to use it. 6. There is a risk that performing Wudhu or Ghusl will cause the time of the entire or a part of the prayer to end. 7. If the body or clothing is ritually impure (Najis) and the person possesses only as much water so that if he was to perform Wudhu or a Ghusl, no more water would be available for making his body or clothing pure for prayer. Tayammum can be done on earth, sand, and a lump of clay or stone. Earth is the first choice for tayammum. If there is no earth then either sand or a lump of clay can be used. If earth, sand or a lump of clay is not available then a stone can be used. However, one cannot perform tayammum on minerals e.g. agate, diamonds... If none of the above are available, then dust which may have settled on the carpet can be used. If dust cannot be found then tayammum can be done on wet earth. If snow or ice is available, then you should try and melt it to do wudhoo. If this is not possible then tayammum can be done on the snow or ice. The things on which tayammum is done should be clean [tahir], it should not be usurped [ghasbi] or done on a place that is usurped. Another case that can be expressed here refers to doubts of a man about cleanness of these things. ‘Taharat law’ is a jurisprudential law which is got from traditions. It says; کل شیء لک طاهر حتی تعلم أنه قذر. “All things are clean unless you become sure about their impurity.” According to this law, a man shall not take attention to his unacceptable doubt about purity & impurity of the thing that he wants to perform Tayammum on it. It means it is considered clean unless he is sure about its impurity.

  24. Alsalamu Alaykum Salat is the best among all acts of worship. The rank of its importance in Islam is vivid, but the following tradition comes as an example to prove that; قَالَ رَسُولُ اللٌّهِ (ص): أَوَّلُ مَا افْتَرَضَ اللٌّهُ عَلى أُمَّتِي الصَّلَوَاتُ الْخَمْسُ وَ أَوَّلُ مَا يُرفَعُ مِنْ أَعْمَالِهِمْ الصَّلَوَاتُ الْخَمْسُ وَ أَوَّلُ مَا يُسْأَلُونَ عَـنْهُ الصَّلَوَاتُ الخمس. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his progeny) said: “The first thing that Allah made obligatory upon my Ummah was the five prayers; and the first thing from their acts of worship that shall be taken up will be the five prayers; and the first thing that they will be questioned about will be the five prayers.” [Kanzul `Ummal, Volume 7, Tradition 18859] At the glance, it is clear to realize that the case of Salat, which includes special parts & conditions, as one of obligatory acts of worship is exclusively for Muslims. It means its performing is useless effort for those who do not believe to Allah (swt) and the comprehensive religion that He has chosen for servants. Because in this way they do not receive and comprehend Salat’s advantages & its positive effects in their life. As it is understandable from the holy Quran 29:45, to restrain from indecent and wrongful conduct are as the influences of performing Salat by all of its parts and conditions. Therefore, to believe Allah (swt) and Islam are as fundamental expedients to receive positive effects of Salat on man’s heart.
  25. Salam Aleykum Brothers and Sisters in Islam! There seems to be a new Fatwa by Seyed Ayatollah Sistani! According to the past this was stated in the Q&A section of his (the emince) website Question: What is your ruling about cat hair on a person's dress during salat? Answer: Cat hair does not make prayers void. Cat Hair 2Question: Can I keep a cat in my house? Answer: There is no problem. Animals 3Question: Does cat hair affect your prayers. Answer: According to Grand Ayatollah Sistani, cat hair does not affect the prayers. Animals 4Question: What is the Islamic law about cat hair found on your clothes during prayer? Answer: Cat hair does not affect your prayer. Now lately looking into the Q&A section it got some changes! Question: What is your ruling about cat hair on a person's dress during salat? Answer: If there is one cat hair or there are two or three hairs on a person's body or clothe, his prayer is in order but if there are more than that, his prayer becomes void, as an obligatory precaution. Cat Hair 2Question: Can I keep a cat in my house? Answer: There is no problem. Animals 3Question: Does cat hair affect your prayers. Answer: According to Grand Ayatollah Sistani, cat hair does not affect the prayers. Now my question is what does this tell me now, cause it got me really confused when u look at question 1 and question 3, here. Is it now permissible to pray with cathair on your clothes or even on your prayer rugs or not. The problem is I am a follower of him and had persian cats over so many years. Now this is stated and obviously my cats didn't die. What shall I do? I will do whatever it takes to make my Salat being Inshallah accepted by Allah swt. but there must be something or an option without giving them away! If you could help me I would remember you in my supplications! Wa Salam Seyed Ashkan "WalAsr"
