Please recite a fatiha for my dear aunt who passed away today. I feel very sad for my old grandmother who in her age has to see her youngest child pass away and for my aunts 4 year old daughter that she leaves behind and will now have to live her childhood without a mother.

Rahmatul Allah 3leeha brother.  My heart aches for her daughter.  Many people always tell parents, that God keep your children.  But I say to the children, God keep your parents for you.

inna lil Allah wa inna elahi raj3oun.

Where was your aunt buried?

Will her daughter be able to visit her grave?

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

What ever happened to Henry Ford ?

His business philosophy, l mean.

Ford said to pay your employees enough to buy the product they produce.

In Ford's case, this was cars.

https://www.businessinsider.com/amazon-employees-on-food-stamps-2018-8 

Amazon crossed the Trillion Dollar Company this week. The 2nd corporation to do so.

Bezos' paper-wealth l saw this week is now about $160 Billion. Twice plus of Bill Gates.

But he definitely doesn't have anything to show-off for Henry Ford with. Does he?

Watch out, @hasanhh. You're starting to sound like a socialist with this talk of fair wages and criticism of billionaire business owners.

No, it is very capitalistic.

lf you do not pay people enough, or over tax them, then what you have is rich people passing money around in a circle among themselves -and a few imports; and poor people who buy nothing (essentially).

I got some blue light blocking glasses for reading on mobile devices. I guess they work, but my family kept commenting that I look like a librarian while wearing them. So I got a beaded glasses retaining chain to complete the look. :grin:

The only problem now will be if I wear them in a library, people will interrupt my reading to ask for my help finding things.

Watching hurricane "Florence", I hope we don't have to evacuate. There's a 20% chance of it turning north and not making landfall at all. There's an 80% chance we're going to get some dramatic weather late this week. I'm prepared for power outages, but not travel with pets.

@notme  Are you like half the US population, within 50 miles or the coast, or the 90% within 100 miles of a coast?

Within 50. Well within 50, plus surrounded by rivers. 

Schools are now closed "until further notice" and they've started mandatory evacuations of some low lying areas, and they're not even predicting storm effects until Thursday. Please, duas for the safety of those who are/will be affected. 

My husband's employer has authorized casual wear for the rest of the week so they can comfortably fill and carry sandbags.

Belief: There is no substitute for reciting Qur'an.

You are truthful.  

On the Day of Judgement, Quran will complain how the Muslims ignored it and didn't pay any attention to it.

Just found this out today, about this Urdu Noha:

 

was written by a Hindu:

Quote

The famous dirge (Noha) ‘Ghabraaey gi Zainab’ was written by a Hindu poet Munshi Channulal Dilgeer. Munshi Channulal Dilgeer lived before Anees and also penned 417 marsias. ‘Ghabraaey gi Zainab’ used to be recited in Lucknow since long, especially on ‘Shaam e Gharibaa’n,’ but in a quick momentum.
When Nasir Jahan first recited it on radio in 1956, he changed the delivery to a slow rendition that became highly appreciated and widely emulated.

I wanna recite a noha in my Shia community, but think that I'll get nervous. I've never recited it before.

Can someone give me an advice! How can I manage my nerves? What if my voice cracks? 

I really wanna recite one!

I have no idea what reciting a noha actually means, but it sounds pretty much like public speaking.

Be glad you weren't given a date and time to stand in front of a community and give your personal testimony, (sinner to saved), in an event detailed 10 minute (eternity), speech meant to impress and inspire listeners of all ages, races, backgrounds, peers, on and on. You have it easy.

I guess the first question is, why? 

Is it personal training, (something everyone your age does), an achievement, a goal, a first step to your goal? 

The bigger question, does it honour God or does it promote you? The only answer to that question is to honour God and that must be your focus.

Personal feelings aside. Go make that date and time.

It is recitation of devotional or storytelling poetry.

They will love it even if your voice sounds bad as long as its genuine inshaAllah.

Just now, Husayni said:

I wonder how idiotic we look to Ahlul Barzakh (the people of barzakh) right now, chasing and going after this temporary world.
(not directly implied to anyone, just a general statement)

Alhamdulillah weshokorr that you are thinking of your akhira. Most people don't do that.
