883 knowledge al salam aleikom,

i am writing to ask how does one learn for the sake of Allah. i have heard this many times but i cannot understand how one does this. i understand that part of the reason is to gain a better understanding of God and His power to increase piety as well as to help other servants of Allah. however, i struggle to motivate myself for such reasons.
i find that allah has blessed me with many opportunities and capabilities but i want to exploit these opportunities to the fullest and understand that working for materialistic desires is not the way of islam.

Are there other reasons to study for the sake of Allah?

Thank you very much

Jazakallah khair

962 Gemstones I've heard tales from my grandmother about the gemstone 'sapphire' and how it had 'evil powers' of sort, and that if the stone isn't deemed favorable to a person, he/she shouldn't keep it as it would bring upon a bad omen on him/her. I want to know if such a thing about the gemstone is true, and if it is, how does one determine if the stone is good or bad for oneself? Thank you for your time!

At 3pm my mother breathe start to broken, intiallity cant understand what happing, I took to hospital, her treatment started, I was standing with her bed and was praying that she will become fine, I have no feeling that she will die today and I was confirmed that she will be fine. Nurse asked me to go out as they want to do ecg of mother, I came out and praying that mother will get fine, after few minutes dr called me and said me that ur mother is dying and there is no chance that she will survive, as I heard that, I started to weep, I have a very strange feeling, my feeling is that it is good that mother is dying, she was so ill that today or tommrow she has to die, the grief which I have to bear tommrow I will bear today, than I also think that now I am free from the care of mother, now I will do my other things, after hearing that my over all feeling was that I was happy that mother is dying and after hearing that I want that mother will die, so that I will got free from her care, but all this feeling developed in me when dr asked me , there is no chance that your mother will survive, I came out of the ward and sit in hospital hall, still while sitting there I not pray for mother that she will survive, but I want that mother will die, dr called me and asked me that your mother is died, which I was wishing and in my mind it is coming that it is good that your mother is died, now u are free from each and every thing and u will live the life easily, these all feelings coming into my mind and I was weeping and weeping and thinking in that way.

986 Islam and Computer Science Assalamoalaikum! How are you ??
My name is Amir Shehzad. I am from Pakistan. I have done BSc (hons) Electrical Engineering with majors in Computer Engineering. I have some confusion related to my studies and I am writing this email to you to get some help for correct direction in the field.
I am confused as a MUSLIM, should I further continue my studies in field of my interest i.e., computer science .
I don’t have any idea that's why writing to you. What can I do with computer science for the people?? No rather I should ask what should be my aim in this field according to Islam. And one more should I excel in this field?? If yes then why should I study so hard??
I lack motivation but if I want to work, I would like to work in this field.

So please help me with the knowledge ALLAH has blessed you with.
Jazak ALLAH.

994 Old mans qadha of salat sawm AOA,

First of all I'd like to express my happiness for this great service. May Allah Almighty bless everyone involved in this project.

My question is related to Salat and Sawm.
An old man in his late 60's wants to know the solution to the following issue as per the laws of agha Sistani:

This old man hasn't kept a fast in his life. (just a few maybe but he doesn't even know how many). He only started praying regularly at around the age of 40.

This man was not religious during his youth but he wants to rectify himself now. His mother passed away when he was 6 months old and his father didn't pay much attention to his upbringing. He started working at a very young age. His working environment was very tough and in harsh climate. This man became diabetic at the age of around 30. He is weak now and he also has heart problems and sits and prays his salat and cannot fast. Since he is poor, he is unable to pay large kaffara amount.

Kindly requesting you to reply at your earliest as he is desperately looking for a solution.

Thank you and best regards,
JazakAllah Khair
