I highly recommend everyone to buy the book " Combat With the Self" by Muḥammad ibn al-Ḥasan Ḥurr al-ʻĀmilī,

Translated by Nazmina A. Virjee

Here's a short description of the book : Combat with the Self is a compilation of

traditions and sayings from the Holy Prophet

and his Household (Hadith), classified under

various subsections, all broaching the subject of

the self, its vices, temptations, strengths and

weaknesses. Based on the fact that one's self is

one's greatest enemy, the book encompasses

universally acknowledged issues of moral and

ethical value from honesty and charity to

humility and philanthropy. It consists purely of

the sayings of the Imams, through which the

reader will be left amazed at how congruent the

Imams' words are with the message of the

Qur'an.

There are many books on this list and if you wish to start somewhere, I would say read about someone you know and take their advice.

Or someone you never heard of before, but are so happy that you have found them now. Alhamdulillah

I would suggest to read about Shaikh Rajab Ali Khayyat.

    • I haven't seen a specific narration. It seems to be the reason some fuqaha have this ruling is because it comes under nahi an al munkar. Also, some fuqaha say all sins are punishable under the Islamic court - and this is done through ta'zir. And not wearing hijab would be a sin.
    • It is the best option. Even if it means having one less sin under your name, that means something in Islam. @notme they are much better for boys. Trust me I know from personal experience. If you were to be present in some of the conversations that boys have in the playground about girls you might faint lol
    • Bloomberg and aljazeera.com both reported 12 days ago that the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority sent a list with hundreds of names to lenders, telling them to freeze any accounts linked to them. Today (November 20, 2017) Reuters is reporting that over 2,000 bank accounts have been frozen. 
    • Of course the story of Adam and Eve was much better suited for them. The Bible and the Quran are far from the only old cultures telling similar stories. 
    • I don't think there's anything wrong with that at all. If she didn't want to marry him for whatever reason then that's her right. Now, if that reason was that he wasn't from the US then so be it. Her life, her choice.
