  1. Salam, if a person’s body become najis because of urine. So how he can pak it under the shower? Is it neccessary to wash one’s body under the shower twice? Or standing under the shower will make our body pak. im not sure whether my shower is qalil or kurr. Thanks
  2. 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!
  3. Salam, I was hoping to get some advice from the men out there who are attending university or work for long durations in the day. I am currently at university, for majority of the day (maybe 8 to 10 hours), which requires me to use the toilet (allot). However, they are public toilets and are usually quite dirty, so I usually urinate while standing up for convenience and cleanliness. Obviously, that is not permitted, and it's preventing me from performing prayer during the day, so I usually have to combine them when I reach home. Is there a solution to this? Keep in mind that cleaning the seat with water and toilet paper takes about 5 to 10 minutes which is largely impractical when you go to the toilet more than 6 to 8 times a day. Also, the closest most is a 5 minute walk so it is also a huge inconvenience to walk there every time. Please let me know if you've overcome this issue. Jazakum Allah Khear
  4. As salamu aleikoum, I have a really big, I would say unbearable problem. I was born in a muslim family. However, for a little less than three years, I had doubts about Islam. I can confidently say that I wasn't a muslim during that time. Then, al hamdoulilah, I reverted to Islam. I practiced Islam better than ever for a long time. For a few months however, I realised that I had a serious problem. Since I do taqlid of Ayatollah Sistani, kuffar are considered najis. Therefore, everything I touched with wetness in my house during those two-three years was rendered najis. If I was the only one living there, it wouldn't be hard to clean the whole house. However, we are 6. Therefore, even if I wash myself then clean the whole house, it would be najis again very quickly since other members of my family have touched the same objects that I did when I wasn't a muslim. It means that they themselves became najis and will render najis anything they touch with wetness... The only solution would be for everyone to clean themselves completly and then wash the whole house ! Please, what should I do ? Does anyone have an idea ? My prayers and everything will be void because of that.
  5. As salamu aleikoum, I know it seem funny to ask a question about something as "silly" as washing urine but I really wonder if urine has to be washed once or twice when using kurr water. That is because of two reasons : 1) I believe that there are contradictions in Ay. Sistani's website about this matter (see the references below). At the very least, I believe it is not very clear ; 2) Most of people don't even wash urine twice after urinating (they just wash it once and use their hand) or after being splashed with urine (they put the najis part under the tap once). Therefore, would it mean that they are all najis ? Here is why I think that there are contradictions in Ay. Sistani's rulings. First, let's look at these 5 rulings : ------------------------------------------ http://www.sistani.org/english/book/46/2029/ http://www.sistani.org/english/book/46/2030/ http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2120/ http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2140/ http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2140/ --------------------------------------------------------- We can clearly see that it is stated that if the body or the dress is najis with urine, it must be washed twice, be it with kurr, under-kurr water or rain water (it seems that things have a different ruling). This is an obligatory precaution. Therefore, the follower is allowed to act on the fatwa of another mutjahid (http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2116/) ---> Does anyone know a mutjahid who says that it is enough to wash urine once in kurr water ? Now, let's see where the "contradiction" is, according to me : http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2123/ (this ruling is in the chapter "taharat - rules concerning use of lavatory", if knowing the context can help anyone understanding it). So, in the ruling above, it is stated, if I am not mistaken, that washing urine once with kurr water is enough ! It doesn't even say that it must be washed twice as a precaution. It only says that about washing urine with under-kurr water. Can someone please clarify that ? And does anyone knows a mutjahid who says that washing urine once with kurr water is enough ? Otherwise I think we all know muslims who do not wash urine twice, not because they are lazy or careless but because they think that is the way urine should be washed. Thank you very much.
  6. Salam Alaikum everyone, I have a question regarding the remove of najasah from an electrical appliance (in my case a phone & a laptop), how would one go around making this pure again without taking out the battery (because it cannot be removed) & risk ruining it? Is it possible to use wet wipes perhaps? Salams. (PS - the Najasah falls into the blood/semen category). Walaykum Asalam.
  7. Is the water in a western toilet bowl (after you flushed it) tahir? I'm asking because I occasionally use it to clean my backside when other water is not available. Fairly certain it should follow the rules of Kurr water, but I thought I'd see what others had to say.
  8. While i was watching the inqilab (revolution) on tv i saw that someone was caught with gun in hand about to assassinate or had a plan to assassinate tahir ul qadri but he got caught so instead of having him killed then and there or even have him arrested tahir ul qadri instead hugged him and forgave him, i was wondering if anyone else saw it aswell? The only image i managed to find

    Leather

    Al salam alycom, I live in a western country, in which there are many products that is made of real leather, and many of the products states that is "made in Italy" or "made in France" for instance. However most of the leather that is used in for instance car seats and bags have been gone through machines and have been "treated" by for instance colors and other products. As the leather is treated it will be coated and treated. In this case, due to the procedures that the leather has undergone such as coloring and other chemical procedures will this not prevent the leather from getting wet, as it is only the surface that is getting wet and thus for instance rain/water and sweat will not reach the leather itself? And for instance will this not make the leather as istihala? (As There are also many leather products that does not smell nor looks like leather because of the color used). I hope my question was clear. Wa salam.
  10. A brief notion for what people needs today in Pakistan is confusing, not only for intellectuals, politicians BUT FOR MAZLOOMS' After Quaid-e-Azam true leadership, none secured the mass! Dr. Tahir-UL-Qadri, after a long time returned to setup a fire in Pakistan which is believed to be A clutch behind which every thing gets dissapeared. Many talk shows held one after the other and disrupted media to KNOW THE MOTIVE??? Without any true motive,aim or action he conducted a jalsae aam and get a record jalsa. People of Pakistan are true confused people who are searching for their rescue!. Tahir-UL-Qadri got the oppurtunity to enhance the materalistic approach to grab attention for more voters! TMQ (a league of tahir) nudges the temperature and said that we want elections after settlement to provide peace... This confused statement arrises what? WHAT IS YOUR OPINION?
