  2. I did a brief search and came up with these: http://pakistanappeal.org/ also this site, listing "Charities that have made Pakistan proud" https://www.shughal.com/13-ngos-charity-trusts-made-pakistan-proud-worldwide/ The issue I couldn't sort out was priorities, as it is obligatory on us to provide food and water. I don't know if this may be excessive investigation when it comes to giving to charities. I just imagine that there is a potential to be generous to one cause and still not fulfill our obligations. If anyone has any personal views or information on this, please share. Shukriya
  3. Salaam Alaykum All: I recently received an email from Doctors Without Borders describing the situation of the Rohingya in Bangladesh and Burma. http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/node/71826 Though I had heard about the situation, I had failed to imagine the severity of the living conditions. Nor did I consider that they may have been dying of lack of good food and clean water. I figured that a prayer for them was the best I could do, having my own situation and issues to deal with. This is taken from Sistani.org, Islamic Laws of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Sistani: 2644. It is obligatory upon every Muslim to save the life of a Muslim, who may be dying of hunger or thirst, by providing him enough to eat or drink. This obligation is pretty simple to understand (i could be wrong here, maybe it applies when one knows of someone specific dying?), but it seems like such a huge feat in todays trends of wars and oppression: Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Bangladesh/Myanmar, (we can also imagine the stories that will never make it to Western news outlets). So I've been looking through mostly Muslim charities, trying to vet them for the most effective way of fulfilling the above mentioned obligation. Some that stood out to me were One Nation: https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/helprohingya Human Appeal: https://donate.humanappeal.org.uk/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuq6exL-Y1gIVEZ4bCh2kFApAEAAYASAAEgLbKfD_BwE I'm wondering if any of you out there have made any contributions to any of these cause, how you may have settled on a trustworthy charity, Muslim or otherwise. Thanks in advance for any input. Wa Salaam
  4. As-Salaam alaykum, According to Sayed Sistani, leather "Such products are considered pure and salat in them is permissible, if there is a probability that they were made from skin of an animal that is essentially halãl and was slaughtered according to Islamic laws." If leather is pure it cannot make anything najis by itself. Hope this helps!
  5. Child Marriage In Islam?

    Thanks for the link. It helped a little
  6. Child Marriage In Islam?

    Salaam alaykum all, This is my first post. So I apologize for any formalities I may have neglected (introductions and such) I have a general question regarding the definition of Baligh. It could be mentioned here that this inquiry comes after I came across an argument against Islam as a whole using HQ 65:4 to show that Islam allows child marriage. in this Ayat, Allah SWT speaks about the method of divorce for women who do not expect to menstruate and those who "have not menstruated". The translation seems pretty clear. I've read of how it can be reckoned that the age of Aisha was closer to 18 at the time of her marriage. I'm just wondering if there is a clear, concise definition of Baligh, if the controversies of early marriage in general can be reasoned from one point or another. Many thanks for reading, hope i get some responses. Salaam alaykum.
