  1. Husband

    Salam aleykom! I have A sister who's very very religious. I have never seen A more religious woman who lives in the west. She prays on time, never skip prayer, never had any contact with any guy, she didn't put makeup until she got married (she got married at The age of 23 in iraq). Her husband seemed good and nice and all that but not very religious. So they got married and after that My sister never slept without crying. He was really bad to her. It have been to many problems between The Two of them for me to write it in here. So in The Holy Quran Allah SWT says "Good women are for good men and good men are for good women". I really dont understand this can anyone explain? I mean My sister she is good, very good and she always listens to him and she pleases him and his evil mother. I could never stand out with the pain she has been through. I would've been crazy within an hour. So she is good really so why did she get such a bad husband? And he abused her 2-3 times. They have been married 2 years now. They had A fight 2-3 months ago and she is considering a divorce. Her husband and his parents knows that but still they didn't care. She is staying with me and our family now.
  2. what is bad?

    I believe there should be no reason to elaborate further, it is as the title asks; What is your concept or idea of bad? and how do you define it?
  3. I have a very important question that i need some clarification on. I recently saw a lecture by a man named Dr. Nabeel Qureshi who was a former muslim who became a christian and began to dwell on what sin actually means in Islam. He said that the idea of a balance with our good or bad deeds makes no sense as we shouldnt commit bad deeds in the first place and I guess in some certain aspects what he says is valid , but what I understand is that in the quran, there are many verses that speak about a mizan (a scale) that weighs our good deeds. [7:8] And the weighing [of deeds] that Day will be the truth. So those whose scales are heavy - it is they who will be the successful. [7:9] And those whose scales are light - they are the ones who will lose themselves for what injustice they were doing toward Our verses. So if im correct this is not telling me that it weighs my good deeds over my bad deeds, but it weighs how plentiful and dense our good deeds were in order for them to be considered heavy? The thing that confuses me is that what if for example somebody had an almost equilibrium with his good and bad deeds, but has an increase of 1 in good deeds. Does he still deserve paradise? This is one of the points nabeel qureshi used to question and defend his self for leaving islam and I dont feel like he fully understood the complexity of what the mizan actually means, and neither do I. Can anyone define this for me? Thank you, salam
  4. I'm sick of hearing so-called experts saying that masturbation is "perfectly fine", "healthy", and even "beneficial". You'll find many internet articles with responses from doctors saying that there's nothing wrong with masturbation. They also make it look like it's part of normal human behavior. But after independently researching the topic in depth, I found that masturbation can be quite dangerous to our mental and physical health. Masturbation is not normal/instinctual/natural human behavior; masturbation is in fact virtually nonexistent in all studied isolated hunter-gatherer societies and primitive peoples. I'm not questioning the expertise or intentions of doctors and sexologists who normalize masturbation. What I am saying is that perspectives on masturbation tend to be unusually positive in the secular world - a tendency that may give us a skewed or biased understanding of masturbation. There is a lack of quality material that offers different or non-traditional secular perspectives on masturbation. This lack is surprising because there is plenty of evidence of masturbation being an unhealthy thing. Maybe this lack has something to do with sustaining the $14 billion porn industry (which is bigger than the NFL, NBA, and Major League Baseball combined) or just governments trying to make people complacent by rewiring their brains with hypersexuality. Conspiracy theories aside, I would like to spearhead my call for action. Below is an article I wrote in which I give a couple secular reasons why masturbation is harmful and why not masturbating may be very beneficial for our physical and mental health. This article is focused mainly on male masturbation. http://thereligionofreason.blogspot.com/2016/01/how-masturbation-can-be-bad-for-you.html?m=1
  5. Bad Thoughts And Or Voices

    Asalamalikum, I know this isn't a therapy website, but I just want to know if this happens to anyone else? I have these weird thoughts/voices in my head that are not nice. I don't like them, and sometimes I feel suicidal and I roll up in a ball and cry. I don't like to explain what exactly happens inside my head because I don't like thinking about. But basically it's nothing nasty or dirty. It's all about God and other religious stuff. Just imagine literally hearing the Shaytan talking to you, and telling you bad stuff about God..and etc.. The thoughts or voices don't tell me to do anything bad, just bad stuff about my creator. These weird things cause me to sometimes pray faster to keep my mind just moving, sometimes I have to sleep with The Quran hugged to my chest. I mean they aren't nice. I have no doubt in Allah, his messenger, Islam, or Ahulbayet. Of course I am always sending my sallam to The Holy Prophet and HIs Pure Family. And always saying "asgafurallah rabi" or "a'thubilAllah min alshaydan rajam" Literally ALL the time. It gets annoying because I wish to say these for the sake of remembering Allah. But no, I have to say them because to get these thoughts out of my mind, which half the time doesn't work. My mom wants me to see a therapist but I don't want to. Does this happen to anyone else?I always fear Allah will hate me, or I will go to hell. I don't know what to do? What in the world could it be?My biggest fear which causes me to sometimes commit self harm, cry, etc.,is the fact that Allah might not forgive me, that he hates me because of these thoughts or voices. (I can't tell the difference) Thanks so much for taking the time to read and answer. May Allah Bless you all Duniya w Akira.
  6. I was listening to a lecture by a Shia Scholar and he said that there is a non Shia Mazhab in Islam which says that we should not use our Aql or engage in philosophical debates, they see Philosophy as an invader and a threat to their beliefs. Can some one tell me which Mazhab or school of thought this is? and why do they believe in such a thing?
  7. I have a big big problem! I was talking to a man with regards to marriage. Him and I live in different countries, have never met but have talked on the phone and so on. So one day, out of the blue he calls me and tells me he did istekhara for our marriage and it came bad! So at first, I began doubting his honestly about this istekhara and thought it was a way out of making a decision but then later on got convinced when he told me he felt bad about it. Well, here is the situation. Him & I live in separate continents totally. We began talking on Whatsapp and Phone. Nothing haram, just genuine talks about life and marriage. So there came a point where there was a certain amount on pressure on him to make a decision about us as to whether he wanted to proceed or not. So instead of meeting me first, talking to me and then making a decision, he does an istekhara! And it comes bad! So he decides not to marry me or even considering marrying me! Is this istekhara even valid? It's driving me nuts. I wanted to really pursue thinking marriage with him but I was so shy in the beginning that talking to him so much about things was making me uncomfortable and he was my first conversation with a man with regards to marriage. He didn't even ask me if he should do an istekhara! I don't know what to do. All I know is I have feelings for this guy. Mainly because he is so nice! Perfect husband!! And he says I'd be a perfect wife! :( I don't know what to do. Istekhara has made me so confused. I really thought him and I were getting somewhere.
  8. Let me know what you think, and we can discuss http://youtu.be/ZwIk6uBBkyo?t=22m38s
  9. Salam alakum brothers and sisters :-) Again I will start by saying that i Live in Denmark, so you all will understand the context. Today at school me and my friend which is from palestine, had an argument. We all know that when you drink alcohol, your prayers wont be accepted for 40 days. He told me that it DOESNT count for marijuana/weed/hash. Which i disagree because we had studies that shows, marijuana stays in your blood for 30-40 days. Can you help me win this argument, and please some references/sources would be great :) Salam.

  11. The Concept Of Good

    (bismillah) Today I had a debate with a Christian brother and we concluded with this big question. He argued that the concept of good and evil is defined only for the religion itself. Bad and evil, moral and immoral are divine creations only in the context of the religion itself. However, it ceases to exist outside that context. In other words, It is impossible to apply any religion's concepts universally. Is the concept of good defined within a religion's own domain only? Can anyone answer this question? thanks in advance If you need further elaboration please ask. (wasalam)
