  1. Past hour
  2. If you're looking for a fiqhi argument you don't even need to go that far down the line. The relationship by definition is haram.
  3. Sorry to be that guy but your entire relationship was built on haram, may be that's why it wasn't successful. You are not allowed to talk and text a woman who is not a mahram without a marriage contract, you even went deeper and started loving and being intimate with each other which is a sin. From the start, you should of contacted the father and asked for his permission to do a temporary marriage so you can text and talk and get to know each other in a halal and right manner without feeling guilty of sinning. You can do the contract over the phone since you are not in the same country. This is perhaps a test from Allah عز وجل or he knows there is someone out there which is more compatible with you so he is moving you away from this woman. Its really up to you but you need to be wary of warning signs which may cause problems for you down the line in your marriage and this does sound like a warning sign. May Allah سبحانه وتعالى help you. الله يوفقك

  5. لا حولا ولا قوة الا بالله العلي العظيم انا لله وانا اليه راجعون لعنة الله على الظالمين Read الفاتحة and gift it to our fallen brothers.
  6. Ukraine held one-third of the Soviet Union's nuclear weapons on its territory, the 3rd largest in the world at the time. in 1994 Ukraine apparently agreed to destroy the weapons and to join the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). What if some of them are still active and functioning? Perhaps this is the real cause of the international engagement of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
  7. The two hands of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can be understood with the help of following verse: اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ وَمِنَ الْأَرْضِ مِثْلَهُنَّ يَتَنَزَّلُ الْأَمْرُ بَيْنَهُنَّ لِتَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ قَدْ أَحَاطَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عِلْمًا {12} [Shakir 65:12] Allah is He Who created seven heavens, and of the earth the like of them; the decree continues to descend among them, that you may know that Allah has power over all things and that Allah indeed encompasses all things in (His) knowledge. We can say that knowledge & power are pre-requisites for the systems like Universe & Life. To create anything, one must possess the "knowledge" at first place, then the "ability" to act according to his knowledge. Wassalam!!
  8. May this nation either change or crumble to dust and in either case may their evil end. Wallahi. Even the Bani Umayya only got 1000 months.
  9. Those are basically ghulat who hide behind the Akhbari name. In reality they don't have anything to do with the original Akhbari school.
  10. Ok. That’s an interesting argument. Ultimately I don’t think it’s compelling though, because adoption isn’t an inherent, essential aspect of the relationship contract. They are distinct legal issues. Yes, in a modern secular jurisdiction, as a result of other human rights / non-discrimination statutes, full legal recognition of gay relationships opens the door to allowing a married gay couple to apply to be evaluated as suitable adoptive parents based on the exact same evaluation criteria as a heterosexual couple. It becomes legally intractable to prevent the second thing at that point. But legally and ethically speaking they are two separate issues. So I could see a religious argument against gay adoption specifically, but in itself I don’t think that is a valid fiqhi argument against the secular same sex marriage contract. Again because adopting isn’t an essential aspect of the arrangement. It’s a secondary issue.
  11. If she doesn't want to stay with you, why are you forcing her to stay. Sorry to say this but she does not feel you bro. You should find a better one who could stay with you. Find one who loves you not that which blackmails you.
  12. Many thanks for your reply, which is excellent in its depth of knowledge and argument. Given how much evidence there is, and how varied it all is, we can be certain about much of what Jesus taught and what the people who were there thought he did. Formally speaking, historians have universally used criteria for deciding how accurate documents such as the NT sources are likely to be. That Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God (KoG) and his role in it is certain using the criteria of multiple sources and multiple forms. This is not “circular reasoning”, but standard historical method. Similarly we can be certain that the Early Church believed Jesus had been resurrected, using the criteria of multiple sources and multiple forms. In addition, we do have secular confirmation from writers like Tacitus, Suetonius, Josephus, Lucian, Pliny... I've tried to work out what you mean by this, and I can't. Could you unpack it a bit? Thanks. What Jesus did was in line with OT teaching, but different to how it was commonly read in C1 Israel. They were expecting to be given a region of the Mediterranean, but Jesus gave the whole world. They expected national forgiveness, but Jesus gave it to all of humanity. They expected the Romans would be defeated, but Jesus gave them the defeat of death and sin. What Jesus gave them was so much greater than they expected, which is also more in line with the earth shattering type of thing the OT promised. In addition, there were bucket loads of people at that time who fitted the description “prophet sent to Israelites, calling for the revival of the Torah and denouncing the transgressors”, as a means to bring in the Kingdom of God, not an end in itself. If that was all Jesus did, it was nothing special or important, being done by the entire Pharisaic movement amongst others. There is a far better explanation. Calling yourself “Messiah” in C1 Roman occupied Israel would get you immediate arrest and execution. Game over. Therefore it made perfect sense to start in a cryptic way getting the message across, before becoming much more obvious as the time to die approached (John 16:25-32). Jesus must have taught about the Kingdom of God and his role in it. Given the literally hundreds of direct and indirect references across so many different Christian sources from Mark through Paul and James to Hermas and Thomas, it is really not credible historically to say he didn't. And that is my biggest problem about accepting Islam as true. Given Jesus' unrelenting focus on the KoG, it is quite impossible to see him as just a “ prophet sent to Israelites, calling for the revival of the Torah and denouncing the transgressors”. Given what the KoG meant, he must have been much, much more than that.

    Limits of parents

    Its their culture, its engraved in them to be like that
  14. Sure, problematic. But still better than growing up in foster care or a series of group homes. Personally, I think single folk who want to should be allowed to adopt too.
  15. Wa alaikum as salam For a proper reply you will need to refer to experts in fiqh What she did is certainly haram, although I don't know what exactly would be required in such a case for it to be considered adultery. If she has repented and put this behind her then I think her husband should try and find it in his heart to forgive her. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect us all from such things
  16. I think the scholars do talk about it a lot but unfortunately it will take at least a full generation before anything happens simply because the current generation of 50+ adults are unlikely to change their views or mentality. We have to take these lessons and make sure we don't repeat the same mistakes
  17. Wa alaikum as salam As other married brothers and sisters may have already informed you, there is no point in showing up with a list of questions. Its about getting to know each other and to determine if there is any real reason why you wouldn't get along. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) make you successful in this noble task.
  18. I don't know the details about North America, but in Europe the significant change between gay registered partnerships and gay marriage is the right to adoption, and this is also what I personally find most problematic because now a third party is implicated in an unnatural and immoral structure without any choice of their own.
  19. http://www.wabil.com/browse_categories.php?limit=30&cid=128&page=9 Look for Question ID 1821 on this page. Both Sayyid Sistani and the late Sayyid Fadlallah((رضي الله عنه)) both say that permission in this case in Ihtiyat Wujubiyyat, meaning they have not reached the level of certainty where they can say it's absolutely wajib in all cases, so you can follow another marjaa for this issue. In the real world, it's very much preferable to get the permission of the father, and not doing so may put the girl in an extremely bad situation vis a via her father and her family. So brothers and sisters need to use their better judgement and consider all the factors and possibilities in regards to this. A fatwa alone without using common sense and judgement will not help you most of the time. At the same time, there are many cases, and especially nowdays where there are many fathers who act as a jailer for their daughters without having the slightest consideration as to her feelings, thoughts, and plans for the future. So if the father is acting in this way, it is very possible that following the fatwa of Sayyid Rohani would be acceptable. There are too many factors involved for a marjaa to be able to give a fatwa for all situations. The marjaa depends on the brothers and sisters to use their aql along with the fatawa to arrive at the correct course of action.
  20. I would add that Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayad of UAE also trained at Sandhurst. So did Muhammad bin Rashid of Dubai and his son if I am not mistaken. I think this is a British way of keeping strong influence and for commercial benefits with thr Gulf Nations.
  21. Salam alikum Hope everyone is doing fine, looking for some sisters around South London to meet up and hang with. Just wondering if anyone on this site is from South London. Take care Salam alikum
  22. Collecting the tribute 21st century style https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/jun/25/prince-charles-is-said-to-have-been-given-3m-in-qatari-cash Different time, different people, same vibe. You can see this relief if you visit Persepolis. Bearers bringing tributes for the Archaemenid rulers of the Persian empire. Who knows? Perhaps one of them is the great grand-daddy of the current Qatari rulers?
  23. Salam @Revert1963 Akhbaris exist now which you can find their trace it in Pakistan more than any place which majority of them are Urdu speakers.

  26. Kiev: Joining NATO is not possible in the short term Arms sent to Ukraine will end up in criminal hands, says Interpol chief Jürgen Stock urges members to cooperate on arms tracing as weapons will flood hidden economy when war ends Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: "Ukraine will not take any steps to join NATO because the members of this coalition have rejected its aspirations," Igor Zhukova, Deputy Chief of Staff of the President of Ukraine, told the Financial Times. Russia has repeatedly stated that NATO's goal is a military conflict. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said further expansion of the NATO alliance would not bring more security to Europe, as NATO has an aggressive character. https://www.avapress.com/en/news/254808/kiev-joining-nato-is-not-possible-in-the-short-term https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/02/ukraine-weapons-end-up-criminal-hands-says-interpol-chief-jurgen-stock
