  1. Assalamu alaykum. Dawah in Shia is not an obligation right? And if is an obligation,or something to do,how we have to do it? Thankyou so much in advance and Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) forgive me if I wrote something wrong.

    Shias in Russia

    Can anyone inform me about Shias in Russia? I'm planning to study there next year and I hope I would be able to find a Shia community there. I know there are a significant minority in Dagestan and urban Moscow but are there any other places with a Shia minority? I tried to search it online but I can't seem to find anything. If anyone knows of any Shia centers in Russia then please kindly inform me about it and maybe even give me a google maps link.
  6. Came across this story a while back: and https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/12/world/middleeast/Iraqi-spy-isis.html This gave me goosebumps. Imagine being surrounded by men who'd kill you without hesitation if your identity were known. He was later discovered and killed, but not before he had foiled dozens of attacks. Other stories on the guy: https://www.hstoday.us/subject-matter-areas/terrorism-study/the-isis-spy-who-saved-baghdad-from-30-bombing-missions/ https://alshahidwitness.com/Iraqi-spy-infiltrated-daesh/
  7. Sallam Alikum, http://www.discoveringislam.org/shia_mahdi.htm I don't know where to start here but they make "The Shia Mahdi" as such a horrible person. What are those sources they're referring to?
  8. So, for a while now I've noticed that ny skin dries up after wudhu and I don't particularly like the feeling and I feel bad for my skin; I avoid using lotion tho cause I've read on some Sunni site that it invalidates your Salah and not your wudhu either. I know it's better to use non alcoholic lotions but it's hard to find and also why shouldn't you use alcohol containing products after wudhu? Is it fine if you wait a little and let the alcohol evaporate (like perfumes for examples)?
  9. Hawza Life Before I started a Hawza life I used to do lot of research online How to get admission and stuff but I’ve never get enough information about it. So today I’ll tell you all the steps. Ps: It’s better to have some worldly education (At least High school or even Masters) not because they will not accept you.But If you have worldly education, you’ll have better understanding of Islamic Knowledge. Al Mustafa International University Iran Is the head of all Hawza’s across the globe Almost all Hawza’s are under Al Mustafa University Admissions There is no specific time to get admission you can take whenever you want. If you have any of following passport you might not get admission as quick (Pakistani, Indian) not because that they are racist but actually there are lot of Pakistani's Indians studying here and there space is almost full for these countries. How to get Admission? There are three ways to get admission 1: If there is a Jamatul Mustafa branch in your country you should contact them and fill the admission forum and wait till they accept you and send your student visa. 2: Apply Online on “rsampa.miu.ac.ir . Fill the forum and wait till they contact you (Normally it will take around 3-9 months) 3: Visit Iran for Ziarah and visit Jamatul Mustafa in Qom and fill the online forum and wait till they do your work (it’ll take about a month) They might provide you temporary accommodation After you get admission They will provide you temporary accommodation and after that they will send you to Farsi Learning School. You’ll have 4 options 1: Qom 2: Mashhad 3:Esfahan 4: Ishtian You can choose from following!!!From where you want to learn Farsi and Tamhedia(Basic Islamic Laws) Rooms are quite normal you’ll get your own bed with a small wardrobe. And you’ll have to live with other 7 students in one room Timing Breakfast: 7:15am Class: Usually it’s from 8am to 1pm Lunch: After 1pm Dinner after Maghribain/ 8pm Lights off 11pm What will they provide? Hostel Pocket money 48 Dollars (per month) 3 time food (Thursday only 2 times and Friday no food) Health Insurance Ps: For married couple things are quite different They have limited houses for couples (You might have to wait for your turn) To Rent a house it may cost you around 45$ a month for 2 rooms but you’ll have to gave Rehen(Security) this depends on House/Area where you’re living it might be from 2000$ to 15000$ (You’ll get this money back when you’ll leave the house) What will you do after finishing Persian & Tamhedia? Then you’ll have to choose which Madrasa you want to go. There is only Two options Farsi or Arabic Madrasa for advance Islamic Studies For Example: Imam Khomenai University, Hujjatiya (They are Farsi Madrasas) Ahlulbayt & Imam Sadiq (as) Madrassa are Arabic Madrasas In these Madrasa they will teach you advance Islam. Can I get a job after becoming a Scholar? Well first of all remember that you're on Allah's way and sacrificing yourself for Allah you shouldn’t think that you won’t get a job. There are options if you want to live in Iran as a student they’ll provide you money (Hardly enough). Other than that there are few other options For Example: You can be a writer, You can be a Translator, You can be a public speaker (most of the Hawza students becomes speaker) You can go back to your country and serve your community. Ps: If any sister wanted to start a Hawza life there are also Hawza's for sister ,,, Bint ul Huda in Qom etc Best of Luck If you still have any questions, feel free to ask! Remember me in your Prayers
  10. I feel like I'm losing faith in shiism. So many things such as the building of shrines above the graves of the Imams never made sense to me and people calling out Imam Ali and not Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is reminiscent of what Christians do as in calling out Isa. Channels such as the Sunni defense and anti majos also negatively effects my faith. The thought of there being a chance that we could somehow be Mushriks by taking part in these things are quite concerning. Also things such as prominent Sunni scholars of the past whom are very educated have given fatwas denouncing Shias as being kafirs. In addition things such as the claim Shias are the dominant sect in Iran because of the invasion of the safavids and how a persian nationalist contributed to this as well is also very concerning. Also the claim that Shia hadith is inauthentic and there being anonymity in them unlike Sunni hadith with chains of narrators and clarity. What most worries me is the shirk committed by the aforementioned shrine visiting and the thought this is good for your religion and calling other than Allah. Need help quickly, thank you.
  11. You may have read my last post where I mentioned how a Salafi mosque's Facebook page referred to people defending Shi'a Muslims and their creed as not true Muslims. This mosque was talking about me because I had brought their treatment of a Shi'a Muslim up on a Google review and Facebook. A lot of mainstream Muslims would also hold this view as some of these threads seem to suggest. I also read how according to many people, if a Muslim does not follow the belief that the Imams are infallible and the concept of waliyat, that they are not true Muslims. So where does a person like me stand, and others like me, who aren't true Muslims according to both sides of the fence? Do we simply become kafirs? Do we become as bad as the guys who attack you on the countless social media comments, the fatwas, the YouTube videos and in the conference halls? I came here wanting to listen, read and get to know about you because too many people from my mosques, from my initial background, they do not have a clue apart from what they read on Islamqa. They think you worship Ali, the sun, believe that you think the Qur'an is incomplete, that you think Ali was supposed to be given revelation... They believe such nonsense, and they are teaching their kids the same! At best they think you are deviant, rejectors, a people of innovation or secret Jews... If people do not become more educated I imagine future generations to believe Shi'as are all secret Jews and completely have bred out all indication they are Muslim in the first place, such is the power of misinformation and the effect of time. Now I sit here thinking that people on both sides think I am not a true Muslim. I know I joke about going down the garden to eat worms on my own, and I expected the takfiri attitude from the Salafis. I just thought most Shi'a Muslims were a people of reasoning, that they seemed to just make more sense and see life with a more realistic view point than a lot of Sunnis. I don't expect anyone to suddenly stop believing in hadiths narrated by Imam Ja'far or whoever said that people who do not believe such and such aren't true Muslims, I just wonder from your own points of view how you see a person such as myself.
  12. Just a quick one really. I am planning on attending Bayt Al-Qaim Islamic Centre, it will be the first time I have been to a Shi'a led mosque. I am very nervous, not just out of fear of being stared at (I get this at Sunni led mosques either way), but because even though I have watched numerous videos of prayer led by ayatollahs for example, I still feel unsure of what to expect! On the prayer times it has noon 1:11pm, then nothing until sunset. What happens after zuhr prayer, does asr pray commence shortly after? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  14. Salaamun-aleykum I have been using http://www.praytime.info/ tool to generate prayers times as I traveled. But since few months ago it’s location setting software is not working stating some issue with google maps. Does anyone know who owns this software and if the developer can fix API to google maps. I really like that tool and have been using it for many years. Thanks
  15. Nigerian state bans main Shia group led by Zakzaky Back in April, UK-based rights group Amnesty International published evidence revealing how the Nigerian military BURNED PEOPLE ALIVE, razed buildings and secretly dumped victims’ bodies in mass graves in the December 2015 deadly assaults. “The true horror of what happened over those two days in Zaria is only now coming to light. Bodies were left littered in the streets and piled outside the mortuary. Some of the injured were burned alive,” said Netsanet Belay, Amnesty International’s Research and Advocacy Director for Africa. http://presstv.com/Detail/2016/10/08/488114/Nigeria-Kaduna-IMN-Ibrahim-Zakzaky
  16. Asalam aleykum dear brothers and sisters. I have an Islamic question that fits my personal situation. I want to have more information about how to handle my situation. It's as follows: I live in the Netherlands and my wife lives in Pakistan. We've been married for over a year now. In the Netherlands I study and in 2 years I will be finishing my study. Then I can work and get my wife to the Netherlands ( due to my stable income) Each year I visit my wife in the summer during holidays. Then we will also sleep together. But the problem is that her parents don't allow me and her to have intercourse with each other. We are allowed to sleep together but we aren't allowed to have intercourse. I don't know what to do. Because in Islamic point of view having intercourse is legal. It's even illegal to deny sexual feelings for each other while being married. On the other hand having intercourse will be against the will of her parents. Also I will break their trust. I hope you can help me out with this question. Greetings, Jawad
  17. Hey brothers and sisters, a Sunni sent me the following Shia hadiths about Imam Mahdi (aj), could someone answer and/or explain that? Thats urgent. 1st. Bahau-d-Din al-Husseini al-Najafi, describing the Imam-Mahdi as: "And he (Kaim) will kill the men, tear off the belly of pregnant women and the babies on spears" (Surur ahli-l-iman, p. 105). باهو دين الحسيني النجفي، واصفا الإمام المهدي بأنه: "وقال انه (كيم) قتل الرجال، تمزيق بطن النساء الحوامل والرضع على الرماح" (سرور أهلي-إيمان ، الصفحة 105). 2nd. The Mahdi will kill people and cut the bellies of pregnant women ("Bihar al Anwar", Volume 52, p. 348). المهدي سيقتل الناس ويقطعون بطون النساء الحوامل ("بيهار الأنوار"، المجلد 52، ص 348). 3rd. The followers of the Mahdi will be people from the of the sons of Israel (the Jews). (Bihar al Anwar, vol. 52, p. 346). أتباع المهدي سيكونون من أبناء إسرائيل (اليهود). (بيهار آل أنور، المجلد 52، ص 346).
  18. my mother is from Shia family and my father was sunny( passed away 3 years ago). now some of my mother's friends from her sec talk to her for her second marriage. and I heard some things about contract marriage in Shia sect. and I am not in favour of that my mother do that kind of marriage. I want to know that is there any kind of marriage allowed in Shia sect.??
  19. Read the Reddit comments to understand what the thread was about, since the post has since been deleted. ....................................................................................... I'm so tired of the utterly nonsensical and VERY COMMON Sunni notion of 'I am happy to seek unity with Shias as long as they don't curse/insult/abuse any Sahaba, and especially NOT Aisha, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman. Firstly, any Shia claim regarding the sahabi that happens to go against the Sunni narrative is considered insulting. Secondly, and more importantly, is that the same notion is true for Shias... You are insulting the Ahlul Bayt by not accepting them as divinely appointed leaders of Allah, and infallible individuals, and perfect preservers of the religion of Islam, and a high means of seeking closeness to Allah (intercession). Not only are you insulting revered Shia figures by not following them, you are commiting MAJOR shirk by giving a false attribute to Allah, by saying that Allah has not always appointed an infallible leader on this Earth, and that there currently isn't an infallible leader. Furthermore, the real kicker is that plenty of revered Shia figures, such as Abu Talib (رضي الله عنه), are considered kuffar by Sunnis. Is this not insulting? So, how can we Shias unite with Sunnis based on their own fallacious logic? Shias are the minority, and Sunnis are the majority. It makes Sunnis think that they are Orthodox and that they have to unite with Heterodox for political and humanitarian reasons, and that Shias must make [ridiculous] compromises. Shias are far more receptive to the unity message, because we actually understand Sunni Islam, and can see the commonalities. We understand that we can't make Sunnis compromise on their beliefs. Simply by being the minority within Islam, by nature we Shias already understand Sunni beliefs, whereas Sunnis have a basic strawman understanding of Shia beliefs... which is natural, considering that they are the majority. Anyways, the point of my post is the following: Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given. ...This is to show that we Shias and Sunnis can unite, but we cannot unite upon revered figures and imamah. ...This will also serve as a way of showing Sunnis that this argument of theirs makes no sense. Another important question we may ask is "What about commonly revered figures like Imam Ali (عليه السلام) who is given different status in both sects? Can we unite upon Imam Ali (عليه السلام)?" ...a common Sunni criticism of political unity is that "Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) is given an improper status in Shia religion because they call upon him... tawassul (intercession) of the 'dead' is Shirk! So there is absolutely no room for unity since we can't even agree on the status of the sahabi" [yes, I am aware that the Imams (عليه السلام) are still alive, but Sunnis don't believe this...] I would love to hear your thoughts. Wassalam. JazakAllah Khair. Fi sabilillah.
  20. Wasalam, which surah and verse in the Qur'an is this from brother?
  21. How accurate is the following statement by the Government of Canada 'Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness' regarding Hizbullah??? Please help, thanks. https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/ntnl-scrt/cntr-trrrsm/lstd-ntts/crrnt-lstd-ntts-en.aspx#30 Hizballah Also known as Hizbullah, Hizbollah, Hezbollah, Hezballah, Hizbullah, The Party of God, Islamic Jihad (Islamic Holy War), Islamic Jihad Organization, Islamic Resistance, Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of Palestine, Ansar al-Allah (Followers of God/Partisans of God/God's Helpers), Ansarollah (Followers of God/Partisans of God/God's Helpers), Ansar Allah (Followers of God/Partisans of God/God's Helpers), Al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyyah (Islamic Resistance), Organization of the Oppressed, Organization of the Oppressed on Earth, Revolutionary Justice Organization, Organization of Right Against Wrong and Followers of the Prophet Muhammed. Description One of the most technically capable terrorist groups in the world, Hizballah is a radical Shia group ideologically inspired by the Iranian revolution. Its goals are the liberation of Jerusalem, the destruction of Israel, and, ultimately, the establishment of a revolutionary Shia Islamic state in Lebanon, modelled after Iran. Formed in 1982 in response to Israel's invasion of Lebanon, Hizballah carried out some of the most infamous terror attacks of the Lebanese civil war, such as the suicide bombings of the barracks of United States Marines and French paratroopers in Beirut, as well as the hijacking of TWA Flight 847. While all other Lebanese militias disarmed at the end of Lebanon's civil war in 1990, Hizballah continued to fight, waging a guerilla war against Israeli troops stationed in southern Lebanon. Following Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000, Hizballah attacks against Israeli forces continued, concentrated on the disputed Shebaa Farms area. In 2006, Hizballah provoked Israel's invasion of Lebanon by kidnapping two Israeli soldiers and killing 8 others. On January 3, 2018, Hizballah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah announced that the group was working "to obtain all kinds of weapons that would enable it to achieve victory in the next war." Date listed 2002-12-10 Date reviewed 2018-11-21 EDIT: Also, any thoughts or feelings on Canada's statement?
  22. Salam alaikum brothers and sisters. I am a revert now for maybe 4 months and I am having some trouble understanding what is permissible or not. My wife is Sunni muslim of african decent and I am of the USA. She lives in the EU and Im in the US for now(working of immigration process). Ive been recently combining my zhuhr and asr prayer together and sometimes the maghrib and isha prayer. When i started this i actually combine the two so zhuhr and asr 8 rakat and 7 for maghrib and isha. This is not all the time but most of the time because of convenience and work. Is this acceptable? My wife says that I have to separate them but from the research ive done online this is acceptable and some say no. Some sunni brothers told me that this is acceptable as long as the reason is valid. On this site I have read that this is an acceptable practice no matter the reason. Why the differences? Is it a cultural or regional thing and or sunni and shia thing? Can someone give me a little guidance here with references. Thank you all! and Ramadan Kareem
