  5. You haven't answered my question Yes some of the slaves captured during the Ottoman expansion were people that they were at war with....but many were captured during slave raids and I read that they once raided an entire village on the coast of Ireland then sold the people into slavery.....how is this legal by the laws of Islam just to creep up on a village that you aren't at war with and sell the inhabitants to the highest bidder? What sort of legal recourse are people given in a situation like this? It looks to me that when these things happen people just have to accept it.....although I cou

    Marriage Joke

    Not to spoil the good joke but if the husband and friend were good Muslims they would be planning to take care of the shopping, cleaning and cooking themselves, we can't demand our wives do any of that. Imam Khomeini's wife and daughters for example mention (among other things) how he wouldn't even ask his wife to close the door behind her, but get up after the wife came in and sat down to go and close it himself. Ok so in a way I'm making the joke funnier (poor fool's thinking of marriage and probably how his wife will come and take care of all his chores for him, while it is actually suppos

  9. Hijab for a day: Non-Muslim women who try the headscarf By Catrin Nye World Hijab Day calls on non-Muslim women to try out life under the traditional head scarf. Can it lead to more religious tolerance and understanding? "Because I'm not very skilled I'm wearing what you could call a one-piece hijab - you just pull it over your head. But I've discovered the scope is endless. There are all sorts of options." So says Jess Rhodes, 21, a student from Norwich in the UK. She had always wanted to try a headscarf but, as a non-Muslim, didn't think it an option. So, when given the opportunity by a fri

  12. I guess this is something I will have to research a bit more. I've talked to several people today on this topic, and everyone seems to have a different point of view. Some say to follow certain Marja, some say only limit yourself to a certain number to choose from, and other's state that you can choose a Marja who is dead as long as they have appointed someone, and other's also refute this...So, it seems I have some serious digging to do. Thank you everyone for your comments and advice. It seems that this topic made some people react in a bad manner. The intention of this Forum was for me to

When he passed away, I asked some knowledgeable ulema that I know and said I wanted to switch to Imam Khameni(ha). I wanted to follow Imam Khomeni(ra) as my marjaa but he died 2 years before I reverted to Islam. They said it is better to stay with Sayyid Fadlallah(ra) because you know his fiqh rulings and 99% are the same between him and Imam Khameni. There are a few differences, like sighting of the moon (which is the third most talked about subject on SC behind muta

  20. (salam) I'm just going to add for you own peace of mind that, some people on this forum are quite aggressive in their stances. Thus you get a rude tone/language etc. Don't worry about it, it's normal (which is wrong) and it isn't directed at you. Insha'Allah Allah (swt) grants you tawfiq.

  21. I'm finding it extremely difficult to have a rational discussion with the pro slavery section. Perhaps that shouldn't be surprising. Suffice to say that some people think it is ok to own, buy and sell human beings and others don't. I'm sure that the only reason someone could possibly have this incredible view is simply because of the religious stance on it. That is the best example of a closed mind, if your religion said it was ok to (insert morally questionable act here which you currently would never condone) then you would defend that act just as you do slavery. So in the end your arguments

Ghareeb: besides strange, it's context in the school of thought of Ahlul Bait usually revolves around the meaning of 'stranger to a land', as our master Imam Hussain (as) was in Kerbala, as our Imam Al Mahdi (as) is a Ghareeb to this entire world.... Ba'eed: that which is far away, or unobtainable. Like how our Imam is ba'eed from us. Not because of his own doing, but from our own actions... may our sins not delay our union with him any longer

In the commentary of Majma’ul Bayan it is narrated that the Holy Prophet (S) said that whoever recites this Surah, he will get the reward for reciting two thirds (2/3) of the whole Qur’an, and will get the reward equivalent to what would be gained by giving charity to all the believing men and women in the world. One of the companions of the Holy Prophet (S) narrates that he once recited this Surah

  35. Well, I don't really think i'm in a position to say whether or not someone is a Mujtahid, or disagree with a Mujtahid's Islamic views - seeing as i'm not a Mujtahid. So instead, I look at what other Mujtahids say. For instance, Shaheed Syed Muhammad al-Sadr, who said that though he disagrees with some of Syed FadhlAllah's ideas, he still respects him and his views, and says that he is definitely a Mujtahid. See, I don't label someone as a heretic simply because he has different views to me. That is not Islam. Actually it took more like 5 minutes. And it wasn't a rant - believe it or not, it's

  36. (salam) The immateriality of the soul is not really proven by knowledge by presence often. In fact it is not the main argument that is often presented, even by Mulla sadra. In volume 8 of Al Asfar, Mulla Sadra presents ten arguments for the immateriality of the soul, mainly adapted from Al Razi's works. The principle argument offered is the ability of the soul to comprehend universals qua universals, and it is impossible for such things to inhere in a material entity, so regardless if such a material entity is ever present or constantly changing does not undermine the argument.

What is the fatwa about working in such a company and purchasing its products? Answer : If it allocates part of its income for supporting Israel, it is not permissible.

  42. Does anyone else notice that the takfiris, or shirkis or whatever you may call them, these muqassirs, always create the fake strawman argument (a logical fallacy) that we pray to and ask the Imams (as) to fulfill our needs, while lying that we also believe in them as equal to Allah and deities/partners, maazAllah, and then create a circus, waving the shirk flag as they refuse to acknowledge the specifications of the Quran, the precise purity and direction of our intentions? Rinse and repeat?

  50. It's hard to choose a favourite at such but I would recommend Surah Ad-Duha as it has a beautiful translation and is fairly short and therefore possible to memorize. It's especially meaningful because it shows you that The Almighty cares about you, even if you think yourself insignificant and restores hope to the despairing believer. 1) By the morning brightness, 2) and by the night when it grows still.* 3) Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor does He abhor (you). 4) The Last will be better for you than the First. 5) Your Lord will soon give to you and you will be satisfied. 6) Did He not fin
