need allah

Some days you just need to talk to Allah. Pour everything out, even if it makes no sense. Allah understands. Allah knows even the things you forget to mention. Allah hears, Allah sees. Never forget that.

May Allah heal the broken hearts. The ones who are silent, who cannot express their pain. The ones who are tired of torment. The ones who need a break. May Allah put an end to your sadness, may He put a smile on your face. Ameen

There is nothing more worse when your heart becomes stone and your eyes become dry. You just feel unhappy and so lost. That is the time you need to turn back to Allah, you need no one else just Allah.

وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوْا يَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَكُونُوا أَمْثَالَكُم

“And if you turn away [from Islam and the obedience of Allāh], He will exchange you for some other people, and they will not be your likes.”

(Qur'ān – Sūrah Muhammad 47:38)

You have everything that you need. You have Allah who’s kind yet you’re so poor because you’re not finding Him.
—  Shaykh Dr. Muhammad bin Yahya al-Husayni al-Ninowy الشيخ د. محمد النينوي

"I pray that Allah (swt) softens your hard heart by the love of Ameerul Momineen, Imam Ali (as)" Salam, Why do Shias refer to Ali (RA) in the manner of a prophet with (AS)? Jazak Allahu Khair :)

As you know, (ra) translates to ‘’may Allah be pleased with'’ and (as) translates to ‘’peace be upon.’’

Imam Ali (as) is a member of the Ahlulbayt (as), he is our first Imam and the greatest person to live after the Prophet (saw). Because of this station and his infallibility, we don’t say (ra) because there is no need to ask Allah (swt) to be pleased with Imam Ali (as), because we know He already is pleased with him, rather we say (as) which is used mainly for the 14 Infallibles and other extremely pious people such as Hazrat Abbas (as), Hazrat Zainab (sa), Hazrat Khadija (sa) etc.

Even early Sunni scholars would refer to Imam Ali, and the rest of the Ahlulbayt with (AS).

For example Ahmed bin Hanbal used ‘Aleyhis Salam’ for Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as):
قرأت بسورتين قرأ بهما ‏ ‏علي ‏ ‏عليه السلام ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏قرأ بهما
Reference: Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal, Tradition 9182

Bukhari used 'Aleyhis Salam’ for Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as) as well:
حدثنا ‏ ‏يحيى ‏ ‏حدثنا ‏ ‏وكيع ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏الأعمش ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏سعد بن عبيدة ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي عبد الرحمن ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏علي ‏ ‏عليه السلام ‏ ‏قال
Reference: Sahih Bukhari, book on the commentary of Quran, Hadith 4566

In conclusion, Imam Ali (as) is neither considered greater than the Prophet (saw) nor equal, rather Imam Ali (as) is only the successor and follower of the Holy Prophet (saw).

Imam Ali (as) was asked if he was superior to the Prophet (saw) to which he responded: ‘’I am but one of the servants of Muhammad (saw)’’.

My younger sister who is only 13 is claiming or maybe she is gay. I found this out. She did not tell me directly. She is distant from my family. She's surrounded by childish thoughts and rages out in anger sometimes. Idk how to react or what to do to help her.

Salaam. The first and foremost thing is that you should and must do is bring her closer to the family. That being said i assume that your family is practising insha'Allah. She needs to learn about Islam which would tell her to ‘control’ herself that is because I assume that she isn’t at the age of getting married therefore the question of her sexuality shouldn’t be greater issue at THIS point then her well-being. If she is distant from the family she would be willing to experiment with all sorts of things because there isn’t anyone there who will make her understand and make informed decision about her akirah. Try talking to her. MAKE DUA. That is because you need to justify why homosexuality is wrong and if she isn’t much aware about Islam and isn’t bothered it will be very difficult to try to convince her otherwise in a society where homosexuality is not just acceptable but actually praised and welcomed. Make dua because it is Allah who causes a heart to change.

Never forget Allah is by your side. He loves you more than a mother loves her child, so don’t be shy to pour your heart out to Him and cry!

When someone has cancer or diabetes, we don’t say to them, “Just trust Allah”. So why do we say that to those with mental illnesses? Trusting Allah and having faith in His plans is imperative to the life of all Muslims - sick or not. However, Allah ﷻ specifically told us to trust Him and ‘tie your camel’. With mental illnesses, this means treatment is important.

Those with mental illnesses do not need to 'just trust Allah’, they need treatment. Let’s, as the Muslim community, make that more accessible.
