  1. One of the strange things I find in Sunnism is since they try to sanctify all the sahaba, they end up making excuses for them by saying they were only exercising their ijtihad. It is said that both Aisha and Muawiya were just making ijtihad and even tho they were wrong, they will still be rewarded for their ijtihad. This to be me is a strange concept. Just imagine an example where I am in Saudi and decide to lead a rebellion. I would be casted away as a khariji, yet Muawiya and Aisha can make a blunder in their ijtihad, cause thousands to die and they are still rewarded?

  5. Wa alaikum as salam The ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) were laying down a template/model for us to follow, refer to and learn from. Punishing someone for a crime not yet committed would set a dangerous precedent. Imagine all of us ran around trying to 'pre-emptively' punish one another? It would be a disaster. The case of khidr was a test of patience and a specific lesson to prophet musa (عليه السلام).

    Support for the oppressed and condemnation of oppressors is not supposed to be transactional. A Muslim should do what is right and not expect reward or even thanks.

  8. Correct, and therefore we have been instructed by our ulema to refrain from disrespectful comments. However, in general we do disassociate ourselves from those who opposed Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), His Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) , and this does include A'isha.

  9. If Aisha had behaved just like Khadijah (رضي الله عنه), then the Shias have no issue with Aisha. For 26 years Khadijah (رضي الله عنه) sacrificed her life to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and never did the Prophet took additional wife. Wifes of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) are related to Prophet by marriage. Ahlulbayt are related to the Prophet by higher relationships. Ahlulbayt are not just family, they are higher in status to wifes of Prophet. Another issue, Aisha fought bloody battlefield with the Khalifah where thousands of Muslims got killed. She supposed to

  11. As you have read, unmarried people have many excuses for not being married. I will attempt to address the top ones here, and their solutions. Of course, these solutions involve a personal component, as well as a social component. For these excuses to really work, the individual must change their thinking, and at the same time, society must also change its thinking. Without both changing, the solution will not fully work, but the main thing which will satisfy Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in this case (which is the only real goal) is that the person stop thinking negatively and put in effort

So do you just want to go someplace warmer, because you hate the cold weather ? Do you want to be someplace with a larger and stronger muslim community ? Do you want to go someplace where there is less fasad (open corruption) ? Do you want to go someplace that is cheaper to live, where you can simplify your life ?

  13. Yes, the nature of work is changing, but it has always been changing. Technology has been evolving, and will continue to evolve. This is why I tell brothers and sisters, when you are choosing a career, look in the future, not in the present. Look at a career and see if this career is going to be around in 20 years. Young brothers now who are going into a career like Truck Driving or working on the assembly line in a factory, I am telling them please don't do this. Those jobs will not be around in 20 years and making a shift mid career is exponentially more difficult than making one in the begi

  16. Salam Brother, I think the big misconception amoung our Sunni brother and Sisters is that Shia is another sect, like the Wahabis or the Sufis, etc. In fact, we are just simply following what Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) told us to do, according to the most credible and reliable sources we have. The center of our religion is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Since Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) commanded us to follow Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) always and forever, this is what we do, in obedience to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). When Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) said (at Ghadir Khum) 'Of whoever I am his Lea

    Because they are a corruption. I just posted an article about how the cartoon “blues clues” is teaching small children about lgbtq. They are confusing the youth. Instead of focusing on language, math, history and other skills, there is a big emphasis on lgbtq and acceptance of 72 different genders. This is causing children to wonder what box they fit into. My ex wife’s brother in law has a daughter who identifies as a boy. She is 13. She even admits her peers pressured her to choose a box.

    Like what ? If you are talking about Shirk (ascribing partners to Allah(s.w.a)), this is a sin that will not be forgiven if you die after having done this sin and don't ask for forgiveness. If you are still alive, you still have a chance to ask for forgiveness for this sin. There are a few other sins, like taking the life of a mumin / mumina deliberately, without a right to do that which have 'built in' penalties. If someone does this, they will have to spend some time in hell, as it says in the Holy Quran. Even this sin, though, is something that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) ca

    As'Salaam Alaiykum, I'm new here and this is my first post. I don't know why I'm sharing this here, but I've come to a point where now I just feel helpless. I don't know what to do or how to ask for help. I've tried to seek for help as well, but no one seems to understand and I have a very hard time talking about my feelings, what bothers me, and what it is that I actually want. I want to say that my mental issues started when I was very young. Seeing certain things, experiencing certain traumas forced me to grow up much quicker and take on responsibilities from a much younger age.

    I just want to say that I have children, three boys who are now teenagers. I would never think of saying something like that to them, 'Your ugly' or 'Your stupid', etc. I know the profound negative effect that has especially coming from a parent. The fact that you still believe in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) and Wilayat of Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)) and do the wajibat is the greatest gift that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) could ever give to anyone.

    The clothes she wears must not be of the type that would gain attention and attraction because of its beauty, and that is based on the customs of the environment she is in. For example, if she lives in a village where it isn't the norm to wear, say pink or purple, because every woman out there is wearing a black abaya, and therefore she stands out and gains attention, that can be problematic. So yes, according to customs, material and colour matter too. Just wanted to point that out to the sister.

As you have observed, where islam was once something that people seemed curious, interested and fascinated about, it has now become something uncomfortable and even despised. Part of the responsibility lies with the muslimeen themselves. We loudly proclaim our religious identity but are poor in representing our religious values. Rather than being known for honesty and trustworthiness, we are better known for criminality and misuse of social benefits.

  34. Du'a (supplication) is an act of worship, and acts of worship are reserved only for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), because there is no Lord but Him. There are different forms of Du'a, and we have authentically narrated Du'as which order the believer to call upon Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) by the right of His servants, and there is no problem with this at all, and this isn't exclusive to the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) at all. One can easily call upon Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and ask Him to grant you your request by the right of the Holy Qur'an, His angels, His beautiful creation

    Ya Hannie you have to take better care of yourself. Cutting is simply distracting yourself from what is bothering you. If you still do it that means you are deeply depressed. You should make dhikr often as remembering Allah guides our hearts to finding rest. Suppressing issues don’t work. Trust me I know as I have suppressed a lot of things from the past year. But I notice they keep coming back to haunt me and no happiness is to be found in that strategy. Dhikr is a great remedy for many of our mental ailments. You should look into the science of irfan.

Being an introvert is not a bad thing but infact a good one. But just don't block yourself and don't be harsh on yourself. You can share anything with me whenever possible. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you and protect you.

  40. Of course. It's more embarrassing to think that Allah won't always be there for us. Think of it this way, even a tyrant would be punished for not praying. What does this mean? It means that despite all that they've done, each and every day Allah called them and invited them for salah. So the door is always open, until you're dead. And even then He'll be there overflowing with mercy that our minds cannot comprehend.

It's ok to play for 1-2 hours, but I remember I used to spend around 8 hours per day for years. Imagine the many productive things I could have done in that wasted time, like Qur'an memorisation or even physical activities. 2. Don't visit the bad sites in the Internet and watch haraam stuff. This is probably one of the things I regret most in life. Addictions like this should be eliminated as soon as possible. 3. Learn the Islamic laws as so

I like when I see friends I haven’t seen in a while and they notice the difference in my muscles.
