Why Worship God?

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 06/02/2016 - 11:16

Salaam Alaikum,

I need some perspective on this matter: an agnostic friend asked me, even if God does indeed exists, why should I worship Him? I am at a loss to answer. His question stems from the position of not seeing God as being active in this world. He already dedicates his life to helping make this world better, and sees no benefit in worshipping God, even if God exists.

WHEN CONSIDERING ALLAH IN THE PLACE OF THE UNIVERSE .BECAUSE THEY SAY WHAT YOU THINK THE UNIVERSE WILL GIVE.THEY WHATEVER YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE ,FEEL IT LIKE YOU HAVE CONSTANTLY THE UNIVERSE WILL GIVE FOR ME .I THINK ALLAH INSTEAD OF UNIVERSE!

Wahdat al Wujood

Salaam Alaykum. Many of our scholars who have supported the theory of Wahdat Al Wujood have been attacked and disagreed with, in some cases even cursed. Scholars include Ayatullah Khomeini (May Allah raise his status in Jannah). How do we refute arguments against these individuals and their beliefs? What should the correct stance be in terms of this theory? Ie what should be our approach and opinion towards Wahdat Al Wujood?

Proof of religion

Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 01/08/2016 - 09:23

I have been reading books on the basis of religion. When it comes to finding the truth, every religion thinks it follows the truth and so do we, as Muslims. Is there any way to prove that we are following the truth without using Islamic scriptures as that is a bias we have introduced to prove the truth (being followers of the Islamic religion). Why can't we accept that all religions spread the truth?

Headscarf & Wilayah of Ahlulbayt (AS)

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 12/10/2015 - 02:13

Salam alaykom,

May this reach you in the best of health.

I have been struggling with wearing the headscarf lately. I know that most scholars agree that the headscarf is mandatory. What I would like to know is why Allah made it obligatory for women and not men. I am aware of the physical and biological differences between the two genders but there are a lot of speculations around when the hijab became mandatory. Allah is just and wouldn't have different expectations from different individuals.

Praying Directly to Infallible Imams

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 10/19/2015 - 22:25

Salaam Brothers,

In the quran Allah says 'Indeed Allah does not forgive association with Him but forgives everything else for whom He wills..' (4:48).

However when we directly ask Imam's for assistance or go to Karbala and ask Imam Hussain for the fulfillment of our hajaat, we are associating our Imams with Allah indirectly. So isnt that shirk?

This issue has caused me many sleepless nights, please answer in details as to relinquish all doubts in my mind.

How to ask Allah for help in times of grave danger?

Assalamu Alaikum, I am a 24 years old student. I had a severe psychological problem and i suffered from severe anxiety problems for the past 3 years. and for this I could not complete my three year intakes of four year University course. Before that I was pious boy who used to pray and research on Islam. But suddenly I don't know how some evil force took me away from all the good deeds that i used to do. I did not even feel the guilt for not attending the fard and jummah praters! something very wrong happened to me. But that was not the end.
