  1. Salaam all, I thought it might be beneficial to have a thread where we can specifically post videos/clips. Whether you find them to be motivational, inspirational or spiritually uplifting and think they may benefit others. I was sent this clip the other day and thought it was beautiful and very spiritual.

  3. Personally I think there are so many problems with being a believer. When you say “I believe” you are fundamentally saying, “I am unwilling to admit that I do not know”. The seeker is willing to admit he doesn’t know! The believer is unwilling to make this admission. He draws conclusions about what is not yet within his experience. A believer may make assumptions about the day of the judgement! Further, the moment you believe something, you are in conflict with the opposing belief. You can postpone it with moderate talk. But conflict is inevitable. Isn't it that Abu Darda reported:
  4. Your spiritual year! Take part in the one-year study of the Academy of Islamic Theology. See the flyer on: https://ibb.co/nzhFLYJ Limited places. Please share and earn Hassanat Further information on: https://theologie-akademie.de/kurzstudium/
  5. I wish to share my thoughts on the concept of Unity. To do that, I have a perspective which is a cumulation of all the experiences of my life put together. My perspective may have a bias since it is a combination of the realities that I have lived and observed at different points in time. In order to explain my thoughts, I am compelled to make the best use of my language skills. I believe the English Language is one of the most, if not THE most spoken languages in contemporary times. I start off by introducing myself to the reader. I like to think of myself as a being that is subject to c
  6. Salam everyone, I saw this book named 'Spiritual Prescriptions' by Shaykh Azhar Nasser. I thought I would buy it but the price ($34.99) gave me a not so minor heart attack. Nevertheless, I think this would be a good buy for those interested in the topic. Maybe the brother will send me a free copy or else I will wait for a sale. Given his light hearted approach when giving advice, I believe this would be an easy fun read. https://www.amazon.com/dp/107255996X?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860 The topic of Islamic spirituality has often faced the challenge of remaining comprehensibl
  7. Salam alakum, Alhamdilalah I am a practicing Muslima with faith in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I experience real moments of connection with Allah on a day to day basis and during ibadah and understand from a rational/ logical perspective that He knows what's best for me with regards to putting me through hardship, making me wait to meet a partner and reach my career goals etc etc. However, I feel like my heart does not fully believe this because why am I anxious about the future, uncertain and unsatisfied with my current situation? I'd like to know if you struggle with this with
  8. Part II A Detailed Description of the Method and Way of Godward Wayfaring My notes on the book's content. I had to reformat and reduce the size of file to meet the specifications of the forum. Hopefully this image will be readable after zooming.
  9. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Despite the repeated use of the phrase “there is no proof or evidence for the existence of God,” I would imagine most atheists, and indeed most people, are unaware that there is in fact a technical difference between evidence and proof. Fittingly, the distinction between proof and evidence was initially taught to me in an introductory evolutionary biology course by an ardent atheist professor during my first year of university. My professor used this distinction to justify why she would not be receiving objections to evolution in her class. (Literally, she said that
  10. Salam, Here's a fantastic article/manifesto for a post-materialist sciences. http://www.explorejournal.com/article/S1550-8307(14)00116-5/fulltext Read it carefully. Some of the scientific findings do not easily fit with Shia ideology or Islam. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
  11. In His Name As an ethical expression, muhasaba al-nafs (literally, soul's accounting) plays a key role in spiritual and moral discussions. Commonly translated as spiritual accounting or inward accounting, muhasaba al-nafs has been paid much attention in Shi'ite narrations by the Infallibles and books by many scholars. To put it in a nutshell, muhasaba al-nafs requires one to appropriate a specific time (usually on a daily basis) and contemplate deeply on his deeds in the past (day, days, months or whatever the case may be) and thank Allah The Almighty for whatever good deeds that he has done
  12. Greetings everyone, I hope you are doing well. Well I need to state that I'm a non-Muslim seeking my path of being a better human and in process of researching all sorts of things (religions, spirituality, occult, etc) I was always attracted to Arabic things, especially taweez (talismans), vefks and similar. What I noticed is that Sufism would fit me as I begun meditating on Allah's names as mantras and they really make my meditations better. I'm also attracted to out-of-body experiences and surfing the Internet I got a feeling that Shia community is far more accepting to personal develop
  13. Osiyo fellow humans. I thought, instead of posting in my greetings post more, I should start a topic in this place, as I have reviewed the guidelines and realized the rules suggest appropriate location of threads. Recently I have been writing something, I guess one could call it magic as it focuses intent and places investment in will. It is also an understanding I suppose. I apologize if this is difficult for some to see/focus on. It was written with a shiny ink and eagle feather. I call this Heaven's Gate, and it is positioned (the prayer or invocation) behind a grou
  14. Salaamu alaykum all, I've decided to begin a new personal project in which I try to implement a new sunnah of the Prophet every day of the following week (and till the 40 days after such that it becomes a habit.) I will start with the duas of the Prophet SAWS. He had a unique one for nearly every action in his daily routine. This will help us remember Allah throughout the day, as a matter of course. My motivations behind starting this project are in this post entitled A Sunnah a Day Keeps the Devil Away. I invite you all to join me in this project which will begin July 15th inshaAlla
  15. Recently we have had a family member pass on. I have started to notice that flies will appear and linger around me for some reason. Well it is always only one fly, and prior to my family member passing on this would not happen, however since it has become very noticeable - and in different environments on different days (ex. at work, at the gym). For the jokers out there, I would note that I shower and change my clothes regularly at least once a day. This may just be coincidence but does anyone know if there would be any significance to this kind of stuff happening? If so, does anyone know of
  16. Salaamu Alaykum everyone, I wrote this post detailing how to re-establish a connection with God when you feel like you're in a state of spiritual recession. It includes a more detailed guide on repentance for new converts (which those more experienced can browse over) and then a golden tip which I think everybody should read. It's one of the great realizations of my spiritual journey. Make sure to like/share/comment/subscribe inshaAllah! http://themuslimtheist.com/how-to-escape-being-burried-in-your-sins/
  17. Salaamu alaykum all, It's been a long while, but some of you may remember from my suggested Shiachat Wikipedia Project which did not take off due to a lack of participation. I've decided to do something more within my reach inshaAllah - so I've started a blog addressing more philosophical and mystical topics. I feel that it is essential for Muslims to be pushing the Divine mission into cyberspace. My aim in starting this blog is 3: 1. To create a forum for spirituality. The Islamosphere is seriously lacking in blogs that promote spiritual material that will help us grow in ou
  18. Ramadan: A Month of Quranic Education and Spirituality, by Syed Muhammad Hossein Fadlallah: http://english.bayynat.org/occasions/Ramadan_QuranicEducationSpirituality.htm
  19. Salaam Alaikum my brothers and sisters! My topic is a particularly pertinent one, and one that is not about laws, jurisdictions, etc. I am a fairly recent convert (about a year now), and I came from atheism to Islam, an adventure that took a while and filled with reflection, and sometimes doubt. In college I was taught that religion was inherently "foolish," an idea that feeble-minded individuals hold unto; I was continuously bombarded with the message that religion was innately against human nature, and that God was supposedly "non-existent." So my story comes from doubt to faith and to the
  20. (bismillah) Salam, everybody. I would like to immerse myself in Shi'i spirituality to draw nearer to Allah SWT. What are some of the sunnahs the irfani scholars highly recommend for initiates starting out? According to our Blessed Imams, are there any specific prayers recommended to attain zuhd or detachment? What are the du'as taught to us by the Holy Prophet and his family to prevent our hearts from latching on to the dunya? How important is Tahajjud? Is God nearest to the dunya during the last third of the night? Do I need a teacher? Are the disciplines similar to that of sufism(the
  21. Whispered Prayer - Munajaat Do you want the Creator to impress His Divine Light onto your soul? Do you want to have a strong inner connection with Infinity? Do you want to communicate with your Creator and be completely sure that He has heard you? Whispered Prayer (known as Munajaat in Arabic) is the key to this – it is a divine secret revealed to us by the infallible pure Imams.

  22. Salam Alaikum, Inshaallah this writing will enlighten us all. With the prayer of success, FB/Sisters In Islam ________________________ Commentary on Nahjul Balagha Sermon 80 – The “Deficiencies” in Women by : Ayatullah al-Uzma Hajj Shaykh Nasir Makarim Shirazi In order for us to truly understand the status and character of women in Nahjul Balagha, we need to refer to the Qur’an and then understand the position of women in Nahjul Balagha vis-à-vis what is contained in the Qur’an. Without a doubt, historical events have a great deal of influence on one’s speech and if we don
