The Fasting and the Starving...a poem received by e-mail

I awake in the morning, From the warmth of my bed. He sleeps not, due to hunger, He has no tears to shed. I descend my stairs, Food I can smell. He struggles to stand, As he walks to the well. I have so much to choose, There is food to spare. He gathers water with dirt, And drinks without care. I am...

Re: Miracle on the Day of Ashura

Yes, it was the same. The woman later confessed that she found an open/leaking bottle of red nail polish in her purse...so that's what it was.

Re: Should a man marry more then one wife at a time?

Bibi Narjis was brought to Imam as a slave. She was not married to him as a princess. She was captured by a caravan (under divine direction) and brought to Iraq as a Slave. I am not questioning her lineage. I am stating the fact that she was brought in as a slave. Bibi Narjis (pbuh) was NOT a slave...

Re: Should a man marry more then one wife at a time?

if only under some circumstances a man is allowed to marry more than one wife then this shud be mentioned clearly by mawlanas but i have never heard anything like that The maulanas are male and therefore, biased. Get a female "maulana" and she'll tell you. :P Jokes aside, I think the Qura...

Re: Ebrahim Haji Hospital - hijab friendly?

Oh, oh...brain wave! Why are the same people who're against women leaving the house and working complaining about the lack of female staff at the hospital? If they had things their way, all nurses, radiologists, gynecologists, surgeons, technicians, etc, at all hospitals would be male since in their...

Re: Ebrahim Haji Hospital - hijab friendly?

1. Any blood sample that needs to be taken from the veins in the upper arm can also be taken from the veins on the back of the palm, which is what I always request when I need a sample taken. I've never known any technician to refuse this since the veins are easier to get at and there's minimal fidd...

Re: Should a man marry more then one wife at a time?

Well, anyone who thinks the Masumeen (pbut) married more than one wife for pleasure is sorely mistaken and has not understood these great personalities! Who in their right mind thinks the Prophet (saww) wanted to marry Aisha or Hafsa? Who thinks Imam Muhammad Taqi (as) wanted to marry mamoon's daugh...

Re: Should a man marry more then one wife at a time?

It says "if you fear you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then..." showing you're either marrying those orphans' mothers or you're marrying a woman to take care of your orphans. I don't see where it says a man can marry more than one wife for his pleasure. In addition to that, the ver...

Re: Should a man marry more then one wife at a time?

Does Islam forbid anyone from supporting a widow/divorcee with or without children unless one is married to her? According to Islamic law, a muta wife is not entitled to financial maintenance, so those men who claim they are performing muta to support these women are only fooling themselves and thos...

Re: Hazrat Qasim's marriage on Ashura

Aah...now that makes a little more sense.

My fear was that if we start imagining them happy, we will say we don't need to mourn Ashura either; if they're happy, we should be be too...and from there, a Shi'a version of Easter...

Re: What I learnt from the Majalis today...

Another point regarding hijab that she mentioned. She said that the Imam of our time while crying, has said The shi'a women who do not observe proper hijab have broken my back and she compared it to two other masumeen who said their backs had been broken. 1. Bibi Fatimah (as), whose ribs were crushe...

Plus, by "these mullahs", I mean the people we now take to be "scholars" after they have studied for a few years in Iran; "these mullahs" who are now saying hadithe kisa is not authentic, "these mullahs" who are now saying ziarate nahiya is not aunthetic. By &...
