  • Are you Shi'a by Name Only? - Modesty in All Things [Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi]

    Are you Shi'a by Name Only?; Modesty in All Things - Maulana Syed Muhammad Rizvi - Muslim and Shia are not simply our 'identity cards', rather they have meanings and come with expectations of commitment - It's become customary to start marriage ceremonies with Qur'an, Hadith-e-Kisa, & zikr of the Ahlul Bayt. However after that, at functions outside the mosque, it is all forgotten - Modesty is an important quality in Islam. Haya of the eyes, speech, clothing, walking style, & interactions - Discussing examples of Bibi Fatima in this regard "We start marriage ceremonies with Qur'an, Hadith-e-Kisa, & zikr of the Ahlul Bayt.

  • Don't Be Basic; 3 Stages of Belief, Action, & Taqwa [Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi]

    Don't Be Basic; 3 Stages of Belief, Action, & Taqwa - Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi  - Discussing the 'levels' and darajat for us to strive towards - The difference between basic rulings and higher darajat - Generally 3 sets of levels containing belief, actions, and taqwa, one higher than the next - The importance of constantly working towards the next level - The importance of not putting down those who are at lower levels, considering yourself to be superior - Physical vs spiritual effects of our actions The famous question I always get: 'Are tattoos halal or haram?'. This is where I say don't stay at the basic level of allowed/not allowed. Lift yourself higher. Look at the importance of your self as an insaan. Give value to your being. Look at the mujtahid who says that it's permissible for you, but still wouldn't do it himself. If you have sincere belief & do good deeds, then taqwa enters the picture.

  • How do you 'enjoy' ibadat?; Tips for Creating Enthusiasm & Interest [Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi]

    - Be aware of what you're going to do. Learn the understandings of what you're about to do, prepare mentally for it. - How do you 'enjoy' ibadat? Or have enthusiasm? - As a child or a new Muslim, you memorize Sura al-Fatiha, another sura, and other phrases for prayers. - However don't stop there once you grow older. Learn the meaning behind the words, and connect with Allah. - Some sins create barriers from feeling enthusiasm regarding ibadat. The same way an ill individual with a stuffy nose may not sense the fragrance of perfume, similarly various sins prevent you from feeling joy of ibadat. - Time and space is also important. If salat is simply an item in your schedule which you 'must do and get over with it' so you can get back to 'important' business, then you won't feel joy of the ritual.
