  1. When did men stop being men

    I think everyone here is getting a bit too emotional. There is no need to slaughter the guy from every direction possible. I do admit that he did something very immature, but it doesn't mean that he's a guy who abuses his wife all the time at home. For goodness sake, he just lost it for a second and probably decided to walk away and not create a scene. They probably forgot about it now.
  2. A good man's attitude

    The definition of "religious" is not what most people think of it to be. I know of some religious people who have the most "narrowest of views" and their arrogance is just on another level. If you want to find a good man - make sure he is not judgmental of others, doesn't backbite, doesn't misuse his tongue by swearing, doesn't crack racist jokes, doesn't expect you to be his servant and can control his anger. In addition to all this, find a man who has a desire to seek Islamic knowledge - in this way you can both help each other.
  3. Jannnah/Jahanam

    Focus more on abstaining from sins and attaining nearness to Allah. Everything will follow.

    @andres Back to my point, on what basis do you claim that all those Prophets committed adultery? You believe in Prophets who had several wives and now you just claim that "something happened, therefore I believe in monogamy and equate polygamy as adultery". Plus you made a claim that "polygamy" is like adultery according to yout religion, which I think is not true.

    Slavery of America and pre-Islamic Arabia is not approved by the Quran at all. Quran has several verses which gives slaves their rights, and aims to speak against the barbric slavery you're talking about. There are numerous verses about the freeing of slaves. Slaves also are entitled to a salary and are meant to be treated just like anyone else (not like a commodity). "Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in God, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the traveller, the beggars, and to free the slaves." Quran [2:177] Change cannot be made overnight so Quran gradually aimed to change the mindset of the barbaric men who use to treat slaves as some sort of commodity. It is very impractical for the Quran to come and contain a verse "Slavery is forbidden" since slavery was deeply rooted in the Arabian culture. It required time and Quran certainly took the right direction.
  6. Jesus does not claim to be god in the bible

    With all due respect, It surprises me how people can ever dare to believe in such an irrational idea that "Jesus is son of God in a literal sense"

    Yeah but when the Bible is full of verses of Prophets who had many wives, then it makes no sense to label it as adultery. It's not that the Bible just doesn't forbid the marrying of four wives, it gives examples that Prophets had them. On what basis do you equate this to adultery?
  10. Same sex marriage legalized in Australia

    Yeah then why do you make such a strong claim that "according to my religion it is adultery"? Clearly you're suiting religion to your own desires and what you feel it should be.
  11. When did men stop being men

    I agree with @Islandsandmirrors and @Intellectual Resistance So many Muslims don't fit this verse, which gives us a visual representation of a true believer. I hope I fit this verse one day too. Surah Al Muminum: Certainly will the believers have succeeded They who are during their prayer humbly submissive And they who turn away from ill speech And they who are observant of zakah And they who guard their private parts Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed - But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors And they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive And they who carefully maintain their prayers

    Umm so you're claiming that the Bible doesn't allow it? May you also provide some proof?
  13. Best Shia Aqeedah Books.

    Theological Instructions by Mohammad Yazdi is a great book on aqaid - it is concise and not too difficult to understand. Though there are some philosophical discussions which might be hard to grasp at start.

    Is polygamy also viewed as adultery according to your religion?

    Temporary marriage is nowhere near adultery, please educate yourself. There is a mutual consent, where the father of the daughter contracts the temporary marriage. Adultery is "cheating" where you just sleep in with another girl without any mutual consent. If you're against sex then mutah contract doesn't have to include sex - given both parties agree.
