Question:The message mentioned below i Had received it but i got a few questions regarding name of zuljanah in my mind. ive learnt that murtajiz was the Horse of Maula Abbas a.s but this message says zuljanah's real name was murtajiz please can You Help me out with this confusion?

The original name of Zuljanah was Murtajiz who was purchased by our Holy Prophet(saww) from an Arab named Haris.
When Imam Hussain ('a) was a mere child and was learning to crawl, he used to go frequently to the stable of Zuljanah and look at him. Once the Holy Prophet ('s) said that his grandson ('a) was looking curiously at the horse as if some mysterious conversation was taking place so he said:

“My dear Hussain, do you want to ride the horse?”

And he replied:

“Yes Grandfather, I do.”

The horse was saddled on the order of the Holy Prophet ('s) and the Imam ('a) came near to him with a wish to ride, so suddenly the horse sat on the ground and the Imam ('a) mounted on him.

All those watching were pleased at the sight, except for one: tears began to flow down The Prophet's cheeks. When asked why, on what should be a happy occasion, he was weeping, Muhammad (saww) replied:

“You are not aware of what I foresee. A day will come when my grandson will not be able to keep himself in the saddle due to his extremely wounded condition and this very horse “Murtajiz” will then dismount my grandson on the burning sand of the “Desert of Karbala” with the same consideration, stooping on his four legs and sitting on the ground as he has just done here.”

Answer: Imam Hussain’s (as) horse had both of these names.
Question:I'm visiting my parents home for 9 days but I'm unclear whether it will be Qasr for me. I normally live in California and my parents moved to Illinois about one year ago. The longest I've stayed with my parents at this place is one month. However I've never worked or gone to school or really lived there so I'm hesitant to call it home. Should I be praying Qasr namaz at my parents anyways?

Thanks

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If you live in California and your parents live in Illinois, and you do not take their house as your home, then you should consider your visit as traveling and shorten your prayers.
Question:During this month of Ramadhan, I have not yet attended any Majalis or jamaat prayers, mostly due to the fact that I would be leaving my mother home by herself. She has raised me and my two brothers almost singlehandedly. She is healthy, Alhamdulilah, so she does not need my presence for anything that is of real importance. I do however assist her with small tech problems that come up now and again.
Is it possible that assisting my mother with such small things and just being good company to her, could be weightier that Jamaat prayer or attending a Majlis?
Also, is it bad akhlaq to leave her alone at home?.... even though she would never wish to prevent me from going out to pray?....or to eat at the masjid, even though she cooks for the both of us?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It’s not binding on you to go to the Islamic center although there is a lot of benefit in attending.

There is a high reward for taking care of ones parents.
