  1. I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!
  2. 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.
  3. Imame zamana ajtf said:- Surely I am indeed the cause of security for the inhabitance of the earth just as the stars are the cause of security for the inhabitants of the sky . Nature is showering blessings on us ..... Earth holds us sky covers us Water ,food ,air,lify,children,parents, knowledge,..........,endless ne'mats by God Have we ever ponder into the reason behind these blessings ?????? All these blessings are from tawassul of imam ajtf that moon of bibi sa who is waiting occultation jiska sadka hai ye duniya not only this world but all the worlds Eonlyrearure of this world and all other worlds The biggest ne'mat of lord his last hujjat ajtf himself says he is our cause of security Not only for this decade but since he was born since he went in occultation till the day of judgement In correspondance to this blessing we give him our manipulated worthless prayers ,our gossips,our records of missed prayers , our sins,our friendships with namehrams, our lost dignity from eyes ,zina,accusations and insults of momins ......our gifts are truly precious and endless Imam e wali e asr ajtf says :- Or meri ghaibat me mjhse istefada Ki suurat is tarah hai jese sooraj se istefada kiya jata hai jab badal ussey aankho se ojhal krdeta hai. Kamaluddin vol 2 Sun covered from clouds in winters still people gets light and benefits from it inspire of being covered by clouds likewise imam as says in his occultation his followers will be benefitted the same as from a covered sun Decades have been passed not only decades but 100's of years still he is unable to find his 313 We are waiting but what's wrong in our preparations that Allah is not listening to our prayers ? Are we only waiting or preparing as well Or this modern world is stopping us from preparing Huge and huge pillars of sins are obstacles between imam ajtf and his followers Do we really know our imam as? Inshaallah will try to know our imam ajtf and try to find out the reasons stopping us meeting our imam Let's make this century the last century of pain of our imam ajtf
  4. Salam Alaykum brothers and sisters This is my first post on this website, hope I get great feed back from everyone else. Any ways... Does anyone else suffer from social anxiety? I know my reason for suffering from this illness. It's feeling guilty for my past sins. I used to often let my self fall for sins since I was little and as I got older, I felt much more guilt for sinning which caused me to lose my self confidence and be afraid of people judging me. I would always seek Allah's forgiveness but than commit the same sins again and again and again. Except the margin of me committing that same sins widened from days to weeks to months. It's like when ever I commit those sins I feel sooo depressed that I would rather bury my self. I feel so ashamed for not keeping my promises with Allah. Now, Alhamdulliah I have stopped for a while and never intend to go back to my evil ways. But no matter how much I ask Allah for forgiveness I still have this lost self confidence which I don't know how to get back. My social anxiety grew bigger and bigger every time I would commit those same sins. But I still have this social anxiety in me. I feel like I am the only one who has it. I feel so alone and different. But I don't want this to get in my way... if I am going to be a father soon I can't let this get in my way. I need to gain my full confidence by the will of Allah, I need to battle Shaytan. I just want to stay on the right path of the Ahlul-Bayt, live a humble, clean and good life. Please everyone pray for me that this illness can be taken down. I am really trying. Peace
  5. Salam un Aliekum to all, There was a question in my mind and I don't know why I couldn't put some time to ask this question earlier but thank god I'm writing this now. The thing is that there is a popular riwayat: "The sins of whoever cries, even as little as the wing of a fly, when we are mentioned in front of him will be forgiven, even if his sins are greater than the scum in the sea." [source: Kamil Az Ziyarat Chapter. 32 Hadees:8]", Link So my question is that "Can we repent from Allah by solely crying for Imam Hussain all the time?". And if this correct then why are there points to follows when you are repent from God taught by Imam Zain ul Abideen in his duas? Ima little confused about regarding this. Hope you can help me out?
  6. Asalamalekum, Man are told to lower their gaze when they see a non mahram women, so they don't indulge in sexual sins. My question is that in the west, most women dress provocatively and inappropriately where ever you go. Most of the time a man can look away in such cases. But what about when it is neccesary to interact and have conversation with them like at job, grocery stores etc. What does a believer do, is it halal to talk to these womens when it is neccesary, or what about when it is not required. But can a man has coversation with non mahram or non hijabi women as long as it is withoit carnal desires? I am under taqleed of Ayatollah sistani, and read his fatwas, but i am little confused and try to get some opinions? thank you!
  7. This is an interesting piece written about death. If you found it beneficial then please share it so that others may benefit from it too. Thank you http://ohtranquilsoul.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/death.html
  8. (bismillah) قال علي عليه السلام: أَقَلَّ مَا يَلزَمُكُم لِلّهِ أَلّا تَستَعِينُوا بِنِعَمِهِ عَلَي مَعاصِيِه Imam Ali (A.S) says: The least right of Allah on you is that you should not make use of His favours in committing His sins. (Nahjul Balaghah, p. 720)
  9. Assalamu Alaykum, I am married for last 4 years but my wife does not full-fill my conjugal Rights (most of the times). Because of this I sometime fall in Sins (may Allah SWT forgives me). I am sure if my wife has the right attitude towards me I can protect myself from Sins. I discussed the same several times with her but this never worked out. I am even thinking to divorce my wife. I cannot currently divorce her until 2 years (or 7 Years recommended based on precaution) because of my new born child. I have tried my best to make good relation with my wife as I always care and respect her. It works some time but when it comes to sex I have no rights and if I insist she usually insults and makes me feel guilty as I have done something wrong. It makes it worse and now I have stopped asking for sex and we haven’t done it for months. I have not discussed this with anybody except my wife but the only solution to this I can see is second marriage that I can easily afford (financially) to protect myself from sins. My main concern is what is obligatory/wajib on me to deal with this situation. If I Can prevent myself is prevention now Wajib on me? This is getting very serious for me now by thinking if I die in this situation (with sins and without protecting myself). I cannot imagine living such life till my death. In our family second marriage is not considered with respect either but I don’t want to care about people as I know I am responsible of my actions alone. I dont know how to deal with my disobedient wife or to this situation. I would greatly appreciate your suggestions. Please advise, Wassalamu Alaykum,
