WATCH THE SERIES HERE

We live in an age of paradox. There is no shortage of information and misinformation available on the Internet. Sometimes, even within the “safe spaces” which we go to for enlightenment, we become confused with “new” religious theories. 

Today more than ever, we see the actualisation of the hadith: 

 

عن أنس عن النبي (ص) أنه قال: «يأتي على الناس زمان الصابر منهم على دينه كالقابض على الجمرة

  

It has been narrated from Anas from the Prophet, prayers of Allah be upon him and his family, that he said, “A time will come upon humanity that remaining on their religion will be like holding hot coals in their hands.”

(Mustadrak al-Wasaail, vol. 12, pg. 33, tradition 1.)

 

Introducing  STEPS Shi‘i Theology, Ethics and Practice Series. The Islamic Education department of The World Federation aims to intellectually empower the community by providing easy-to-understand and comprehensive answers to pertinent issues.  Watch the trailer video about this new initiative.  

  

We aim to do this through a steady stream of videos, articles, and podcasts which will, Insha’Allah, help us to become better servants of Allah (swt) as we work towards the advent of Imam al-Mahdi (aj).

There are several verses in the Holy Quran that establish the legality of seeking medium (waseelah) to gain divine proximity. These verses clearly reject the belief of the skeptics who reject all waseelah and term Tawassul as Shirk

The World Federation India Office in partnership with KSI Jamaat Mumbai conducted Workshops on Ahkam-e Mayyit on 9 February 2014 for gents and ladies. The Workshops were well attended by 45 participants. There were a few participants who were as young as 15 years of age.
 
The workshop aims were to give practical training to the participants on:
• How to handle a Dead Body with Respect
• How to conduct Ghusl, Hunut, Kafan

It is not far from the truth when I say that I was excited but at the same time worried about my trip, whether it would be as rewarding as I had envisioned. The holy land we were headed to awaited me.
