  1. Dr Hewer is an English scholar of Islam and Christianity. In a set of four lectures, he tries to explain Christianity to a Muslim audience. Part I Part II Part III Part IV Enjoy
  2. I know having children is a blessing from Allah swt but I just feel like why bring them into such a messed up world. Of course each soul that is put here is by the will of Allah swt but of course we are also responsible. As Muslims we all know this life is a test to inshallah obtain heaven in the hearafter. Why put someone through that test in the first place? I mean if I pull help it I wouldn’t want anyone even going through the pain of a paper cut s why would I want to bring a child into a world of pain? Oh ya ur kid might be the next Einstein or newton or even Abbas (as) but their lives weren’t exactly a bed of roses. Why put them through so much crap for a little ray of sunshine in this world. I’d rather not know crap exists at all, even if it means not knowing sunshine does either because in the end I’d be non existent and therefor indifferent but ultimately saved from the tribulations of life. I’m 24f married for 3 years and I don’t think I want kids. Any thoughts? What do the imaams and our Holy prophet have to say about the reason for having children in Islam? Why would you bring a child into this world?
  3. It is interesting to note that, there is a 'DUA OF THE DAY,' HADITH OF THE DAY', but, there is no 'VERSE OF THE DAY' IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ISLAMIC FORUM? So in what HADITH AFTER THIS will they believe? 77-50
  4. I've saw on the news and youtube of young women being abused by men from South Asian/Middle Eastern/North African Culture under the name of Taharrush. Didn't the Prophet have daughters e.g. Fatimah, Zainab, Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum, im sure Muhammad like any father would do damage to any man who tried to rape, humiliate, mutilate and kill his daughter/daughters. Im not religious or anything incase anyones asking, lost my way at 6 years old after cowards shot my da dead for no reason!
  5. Bismillah and Salaam everyone. Hope you are all healthy and well inshAllah. I have come in need of all your prayers inshAllah. I am hoping that through your prayers as I am a sinful human, maybe Allah will help me (not saying that He does not). I have been struggling with anxiety recently and once in a while it comes down hard. I have a hard time swallowing food and at random times trouble breathing. I want you all to pray for me, my health, and my life to get better inshAllah. If you can please, keep my family, and all those who are going through any kind of pain and struggle as well. My life in terms of mental, physical, and economic health is not so well. Alhamduillah none the less. I have been not feeling the same as I once used to and it scares me. If any of you is currently visiting the kaaba, the holy prophet, or any of our imams A.S. If it is not too much to ask please do a special request prayer for me there and if you can please donate any sum of money on behalf of me to whoever or whatever you wish be it for the sake of the shrine or for the poor. God bless you all, and thank you so much for this. I will as always keep you all in my prayers as well. Wa Salaam.
  6. The first to enter Islam was NOT Abu Bakr, But it was Imam Ali ibn abi Talib [AS] اخبرنا احمد بن جعفر القطيعي , ثنا عبد الله بن احمد بن حنبل-- قال; ان اول من اسلم مع رسول الله علي بن ابي طالب. Ahmad bin Ja'far Al-Qateani gave us news, Narrated AbdAllah bin Ahmed bin Hanbal -- [A longer Sanad] He said: Indeed, The first of those who entered Islam with Rasul Allah [The Messenger of Allah] was Ali bin Abi Talib. Al-Mustadarak 4223 In conclusion, According to Sunni sources - Imam Ali was the first to enter Islam, and not Abu Bakr.
  7. Many people have claimed some kind of divine revelation throughout history, so in that respect Muhammad is no unique. I want to know your reasons for choosing Islam over any other religion, and why I should chose it. Why should we believe in Muhammad over Zoroaster, or Buddha, or Mani, or Joseph Smith, or Ellen G. White? How is Muhammad superior to these other "prophets"? How did he prove himself? What makes him unique?
  8. Asalamulaikum, my grandmother from my father's side was a Seyed, does that make my father or me a Seyed as well? Thank you for taking the time to respond.
  9. Dear marriage age sisters (and brothers) - A 2017 study shows the number of newlyweds decline among the educated white men and a dramatic rise among those who do chose to marry, marrying non-whites. http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2017/05/18/1-trends-and-patterns-in-intermarriage/ If you are a college age Muslim girl out there, do not, I repeat do not give in to those cultural ethos of western feminism. Whatever they are teaching you in the MSM, in sitcoms and in the talk shows etc., is designed to destroy you in the longer run just like they destroyed family values among Christian cultures. Instead spend time with your mother, grandmother, aunts or other traditional womenfolks of your family and learn how to be a 'traditional' good daughter, a good wife, and a good mother. I see 'women induced' divorce rates among the Muslims in the West and I shudder. Did feminists already get us before we knew it???? Thoughts!
  10. Hello. Is this true ? Someone said this to my friend.
  11. Salam, I have been watching this very well done, in depth, and informative lecture series by Maulana Rizwi in Toronto. I will post the videos here. If anyone has questions or would like to discuss, please post on this thread. It is rare to find lectures of this caliber and detail on this topic in English.

    Tawassul Question

    Many people have argued that saying ya ali and doing tawassul is shirk because it makes the prophet/imams all hearing and makes them able to hear people all around the world in different languages and so on. This seems like a strong argument against tawassul. Thoughts?
  13. can some of the knowledgable people here tell me if this hadith is authentic or not according to the sunni rijal stabdards? حدثنا علي بن حرب الموصلي ، حدثنا زيد بن الحباب ، حدثنا حسين بن واقد ، عن يزيد النحوي ، عن عكرمة عن ابن عباس في قوله : ( إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ) قال : نزلت في نساء النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خاصة وقال عكرمة : من شاء باهلته أنها نزلت في أزواج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم
  14. Salaam alaykum I was reading the Qur'an and came across a verse that I didn't quite understand, heres the verse; Allah eliminates what He wills or confirms, and with Him is the Mother of the Book. [13:39] and in the Quranic text is the actual word used for mother, who is this "mother" that it is refering to?

    Hadith proving Wives are Ahlulbayt

    Man times sunnis say that ayat tatheer was revealed for the wives. However, we show them the hadith where it was revealed for ahlul kisa. Then they show hadith that try and prove that the verse was revealed for the wives. They argue first with the hadith from ikrimah to ibn abbas which I think is a weak argument because ibn abbas was not present at this event unlike umm salama who said the verse was not revealed for the wives. However, then they bring hadith about umm salama claiming that the verse was revealed for the wives. Can knowledgable brother give the gradings of these chains? حدثنا عبد الله حدثني أبي حدثنا أبو النضر هاشم بن القاسم حدثنا عبد الحميد يعني ابن بهرام قال حدثني شهر بن حوشب قال سمعت أم سلمة زوج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حين جاء نعي الحسين بن علي لعنت أهل العراق فقالت: قتلوه قتلهم الله غروه وذلوه لعنهم الله فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جاءته فاطمة غدية ببرمة قد صنعت له فيها عصيدة تحمله في طبق لها حتى وضعتها بين يديه فقال لها: أين ابن عمك قالت: هو في البيت قال: فاذهبي فادعيه وائتني بابنيه قالت: فجاءت تقود ابنيها كل واحد منهما بيد وعلي يمشي في أثرهما حتى دخلوا على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأجلسهما في حجره وجلس علي عن يمينه وجلست فاطمة عن يساره قالت: أم سلمة فاجتبذ من تحتي كساء خيبريا كان بساطا لنا على المنامة في المدينة فلفه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عليهم جميعا فأخذ بشماله طرفي الكساء وألوى بيده اليمنى إلى ربه عز وجل وقال: اللهم أهلي اذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا اللهم أهل بيتي اذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا اللهم أهل بيتي أذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا. قلت يا رسول الله ألست من أهلك قال بلى فادخلي في الكساء قالت: فدخلت في الكساء بعد ما قضى دعاءه لابن عمه علي وابنيه وابنته فاطمة رضي الله عنه ..."He sat them (i.e Al-Hasan & Al-Husien) on his lap, and Ali sat on his right, and Fatima sat on his left. Umm Salama said: he pulled a cloak (a Kisa) from under me … and then he [Salah Allah ‘Alaihi wa Salam] wrapped it around them all, taking the edges of the Cloak by his left hand, and pointing with his right hand towards his Lord [Exalted and Glorified is He] and said: “O Allah, remove from them the Rijs (evil deeds and sins, etc.), and purify them with a thorough purification”, three times. She (umm salama) said: [So] I said: O Messenger of Allah, am I not [also] from your Ahl? [So] he said: Yes, Indeed, [you are]. He said: So enter the Kisa (the cloak) [too]. She said: So I entered after he completed his supplication to his cousin Ali, his sons, and his daughter Fatima" في بيتي أنزلت : ? إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيرا ? قالت : فأرسل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى فاطمة وعلي والحسن والحسين ، فقال : هؤلاء أهل بيتي ، وفي حديث القاضي والسمي : هؤلاء أهلي ، قالت : فقلت : يا رسول الله ! أما أنا من أهل البيت ؟ قال : بلى إن شاء الله تعالى Umm Salmah said: in my house these verses were revealed ” God wants to remove all kinds of uncleanliness from you Ahlul-Bayt and to purify you thoroughly.” So the Prophet PBUH called for Ali and Fatima and Hassan and Hussein and then said: These are Ahlu-Bayti, In the Hadith of al Qadi and al Summi: They are Ahly. So I said: O Messenger of Allah! aren’t I also from your Ahlul-Bayt? He said: yes you are Inshallah. دثنا أبو كريب، قال: ثنا خالد بن مخـلد، قال: ثنا موسى بن يعقوب، قال: ثنـي هاشم بن هاشم بن عتبة بن أبـي وقاص، عن عبد الله بن وهب بن زمعة، قال: أخبرتنـي أمّ سلـمة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جمع علـياً والـحَسنـين، ثم أدخـلهم تـحت ثوبه، ثم جأر إلـى الله، ثم قال: ” هؤلاء أهل بـيتـي ” ، فقالت أمّ سلـمة: يا رسول الله أدخـلنـي معهم، قال: ” إنَّكِ مِنْ أهْلِـي On authority of Abd Allah bin Wahb bin Zam’ah, Umm Salamah informed me that the Messenger of Allah SAWS assembled Alii and the two Hasan’s (Husayn and Hasan), he brought them under his thawb, then supplicated to Allah and said: “These are the people of my household”. Then Umm Salamah said: ‘Oh Messenger of Allah, bring me in with them’. He said: “Indeed you are from my household

  20. I was wondering what happens at midnight because there are so many things that refer to midnight they say people get more creative after midnight we have the midnight prayer and some more things I can't think of off the top of my head. Is there any Qur'an or hadith of Ahlul Bayt that talk about what happens at midnight?

    What can I say about this movement. There is alot of truth and a lot of falsehood at the same time. First, the truth There are many powerful men who use their position in order to take advantage of women. They oppress them, treat them unfairly, degrade them, and sometimes even rape them. This is true and these men should definitely be exposed and punished. We as muslims know that if they are not punished in this life, they definitely will be in the next. I especially feel sorry for our sisters who do not do anything to encourage this and do not play games to trade 'this for that' and despite being modest and not playing games they still end up becoming victims of these corrupt men. All I can tell these women is that Allah(s.w.a) definitely hears the dua' of the oppressed muslim/a and responds to it. The response may not come immediately, but it is guaranteed to come and Allah(s.w.a) will turn these dua' into additional reward for these sisters who stay within the haqq. We are living in a world where power is concentrated more and more in the hands of a few, and this is a big part of the problem. There are fewer and fewer opportunities for women (and men also) who are not wealthy and do not have the right connections so they are forced to endure degradation and humiliation at the hands of corrupt men. Noone deserves this and it is a very sad commentary on the times we live in that there are so many who have to endure this. The Falsehood The bad part of this movement is that it is reviving a bad sort of feminism that says that all men are perpetrators and all women are victims when it comes to sexual harassment. They are promoting a sort of cartoon like reality in which it is little red ridinghood against the big bad wolf. The actual reality of harassment is usually much more complex than that. There are many women who use their 'feminine charms' in the workplace and other situations to gain an advantage over their male colleagues and increase their own power and influence and then when any man calls them on it or does something they don't like, they cry 'sexual harassment'. There are just as many corrupt, power hungry women as there are corrupt, power hungry men. So now you hear that the solution is to put more women in positions of power. This is of course ridiculous. You want people who are not greedy, power hungry, corrupt , and selfish in positions of power whether they are women or men. It is their character that matters, not their gender. In Islam, we are taught that the more power you have, the more accountability you have before Allah(s.w.a). We want people in positions of power who believe in Allah(s.w.a) and are just and knowledgeable and realize that they are accountable and act accordingly. If they focus is other than this, on gender, political party, etc, we will just be trading one set of problem for another set of problems and ultimately not get anywhere. IMHO.
  24. Salaam alaikum, I wanted some opinions on a method of approaching a girl for marriage. A little bit of background: I am a revert and not so much embedded into a Muslim community. I am looking to get married but finding it difficult to find someone. I am largely resorting to online Muslim matrimonial sites but not finding any luck on there either. I have slowly started making friends with a lot of great brothers who have welcomed me. So I add them on social media and so on. Those who are on Facebook know about the 'people you may know' feature that displays a list people to add. A few girls have come up on this - they are friends with the brothers I know so I know they are likely to belong to the local community. My question for the ladies in this forum is what are your thoughts on being approached and receiving a marriage proposal by some via social media? ***At this point I just want to say that I have no intention to go around messaging loads of girls with proposals because I think that is a bit silly and immoral and breaches social hijab*** I have been a Muslim for 3 and a half years and I remember a girl whom I approached via social media. I sent her a message asking her if she is in a position where she is looking to get married and if so, is she interested in getting to know me and if so I wanted a contact detail of her parent or legal guardian to request their permission to get to know her. She rejected but was very polite and nice about it. Did not show any annoyance or offence by what I said. I was just wondering how a lady would feel, if approached on social media from a male with respect and good etiquette with a proposal along similar lines to how I approached the lady. Given my circumstances, I am just trying to think outside the box (but staying within the box of Islam of course ) Thoughts appreciated Thanks
