So I am leaving to Najaf tomorrow for Arbaeen and I am extremely scared to death.

I am taking a flight ( different airline) to another city and then I'll go to Najaf and I am scared I'll miss the flight or it'll get delayed.

Also I hate socialising and large gatherings please pray for me

Mubarak. 

Just forget everything and focus on Ziyarah. Everything will become alright انشاء الله. 

During Ziyarah it is best to socialize with unknown Momineen. You'll meet many Pakistanis and Iranian especially while walking. They are very friendly. Just try to avoid any Political discussions. 

A humble request to walk few steps on behalf of Shiachat Momineen. Give our Salaam to Ameerul Momineen and Aba Abdillah (عليه السلام).

No with a couple of friends mostly youngsters. We'd go there through a travel agency and move out alone.

Salaam Alaykum,

I recently think a lot of making more money through opening a restaurant, CarWash, gas station, tech company etc. I'm a full time engineer, but I want to make more (obviously Halal way). My friend telling me about franchise etc., but I feel more comfortable with tech company. It's very risky though, but franchise is the safest way. That's why my friend told me that.I also think of going back to my lovely country, Iran, and start a tech company there. Do you have any experience of doing such things in US or Iran? What are your thoughts?

How does one avoid becoming depressed about the state of the world? 

I often feel this way and what's more disheartening is that I can find very few people who feel the same. Once I tried talking about it to a group of friends and it was brushed off almost rudely, 'don't make us depressed' , 'easy solution, don't watch the news, only use TV soaps and dramas' 'I am not really concerned'. 

I don't know if this is a good approach or not.On one hand getting depressed won't change anything unless I take some action and even that is hardly going to change anything in the big picture but at least I would have tried.On the other hand it's not good to be so ignorant and insensitive about humans like us caught up in wars, dying of hunger, being oppressed, trees being cut down, water becoming scarce etc. 

At times like these I feel gratful to have Shiachat.

Has anyone seen Joker? It seems really interesting and I really want to see it in the cinema. But, I am not a fan of thriller or horror at all, and alot of people have said it was very scary and disturbing. I guess I can do with disturbing but I hate horror movies. Is Joker that bad?

My four year old son's hair has gotten so long, I'm starting to worry about people thinking we are the kind of parents who let their child "decide" their gender. I keep telling myself "it's his hair, he can keep it long if he wants to" but it drives me nuts. 

Parents, do you force your kids to get haircuts? I'm not the forcing type, but the long hair is just starting to bother me.

Is that food by his side ?

Looks like a plate of spaghetti noodles with spaghetti sauce on top. The meme might have been made in the Holy Month of Ramadan, showing him praying maghrib prayer before breaking his fast to eat.

Why should a four year old get to decide? If my girls decide to wear their pajamas to go out on eid day, I do not allow it, no matter how cute the pajamas. Then again, not all of us consider totatilarian parenting the way to go, and thats fine too, as long as it does not lead to him being perceived and therefore pressurized into anything you or Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) would not approve of. 

May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) make it easy for us, these are tough times to be a parent :(

There comes a point where it's long enough to mistake him for a girl which can become problematic. Other than that, unless it's a maintenance/hair care issue; a child should have it as long as he wishes whilst he can, because that freedom will probably be curtailed as teenager and young man.

My husband always cut our kids hair with electric clippers and the scissors and comb, which took about 30 minutes time per kid, which he enjoyed because it was "special Dad time" and they were his captive audience. :) Whenever I asked him to cut their hair again and he delayed to do it, I would give them a buzz cut myself which only took about 5 minutes. :shifty:

My husband doesn't like to do it, but he does a better job than me. I cut my son's hair last spring, or maybe late winter. It's long now, but he wouldn't be mistaken for a girl I don't think. He looks like a cave child. It is mostly the hair that falls across his face that bothers me, but he loves the way it feels when he runs and jumps or the wind blows through it. He is sensory seeking, so it makes sense for him to want to be able to feel his own hair. 

My oldest son sometimes keeps his hair long, but he has a beard so there's no danger of him being mistaken for a woman. But the youngest often mimics the oldest.

On the contrary :grin: my son forces me to take him for haircuts. He loves it because to an 8yr old with an overprotective mum it seems very a independent and grown up thing to be dropped off at the barbershop,get a haircut and pay for it himself.(I wait outside in the car because it's men's only place)

Another one due this weekend.

Desi parents call their kids Shaytan all the time. 

The problem with doing this is the same as saying -in disgust, anger, whatever- "you are just like ____"; because the risk is the child will think "Oh, that is who l am." 

This does happen often.
