We heard on the news about Muslims who were newly elected and were being sworn in while putting their hand on the Holy Qur'an owned by Thomas Jefferson (instead of the Bible as most have done).

The American system doesn’t care about their religion because it’s foundation based on liberalism but I hope they don’t give vote against Islam & muslims specially Iran & don’t prefer their party to their religion

Not off to a good start here. New years day I spoke to my son. He's in hospital, terminal cancer, won't make his 38th birthday. Flying across the country, will see him Friday. They are keeping him until I get there, then moving him to palliative care.

My condolences, and prayers for your son and all your family. 

Tragically young. Does he have a spouse? Children?

@Son of Placid

One of the most tragic events in life is burying your own child.  May he rest in peace.  God give you patience and strength.  You will be in my thoughts.  If there is a virtual book of condolences, I would like to send a message.  I understand if it's a private matter though.  :(

Not really sure what it is yet.  Everything up until today has been filtered through my X. I talk to a doc and get conflicting reports. I'm flying out Thursday, will see him Friday.

Prayers for my son for clarity of mind.

Thanks.

I'm not sure how I feel about Facebook reminding me of the birthdays of my deceased friends and relatives. On one hand, it's good to periodically think of them and a little reminder doesn't hurt. On the other hand, it doesn't seem a celebratory occasion anymore.

Is it recommended to clip your nails on thursday or on friday?

Also, its pronounced silat ul raham, why do some people write it as silat ul rahim?

According to a reliable tradition from Imam Ja'far-e-Sadiq (a.s.), cutting the nails on Friday keeps one safe from the disease of dandruff, leprosy and blindness. Even if there is no need to cut one's nails, one should cut them a little that a few of their particles may fall off.

Another tradition states that cutting of nails and the ends of the moustache on every Friday, and also washing hair with khatimi leaves increases one's income.

Another tradition states that people told the Imam (a.s.) that they have heard that dua and namaz (taqeebat) after the morning prayers until the sun rises, is better than hunting for one's daily wages from one city to another. The Imam (a.s.) asked whether he could show something which was more satisfactory from the point of view of daily income. When the people replied in the affirmative, the Imam (a.s.) said that one should cut one's nails and sideburns every Friday and even if the nails are not big enough to be cut, one should rub them a little on every Friday.

According to a tradition, a person who cuts his nails on a Thursday should start from his left hand and end on the little finger of his right hand.

Another tradition states that when a person cuts all his nails except one on a Thursday and takes that one off on a Friday, then God will dissolve all his worries.

According to a reliable tradition from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), a person who cuts his nails on a Friday, God takes away all pains from his

I think it’s Silat ur Rahim: 

Imam Baqir (A) said:

صِلَةُ الأََرْحَامِ تَطِيبُ النَّفْسَ وَ تَزِيدُ فِي الرِّزقِ.

“Establishing the bonds of kinship freshens the soul and increases the sustenance.”

In Desi culture, it's highly disliked to cut nails/have haircut on Tuesdays and Sundays. I just wonder if it is cultural or has some religious basis?(I think Hindus also prohibit haircut on Tuesdays)
