    A thief instructed his son on his deathbed to do something that would make the thief look good in the eyes of the people. So following his death, thief junior not only continued his father's legacy of theft but also would beat his victims to a pulp. So the people began to praise the later father, reminiscing what a decent thief he was - only stole, never beat people. Congratulations! You've achieved the same in this forum. Mutah threads have never appeared so pleasant before.

    Mut'ah With A Non Believer

    Isn't the vow in Christian marriage that they marry till death parts them? And the vow is made to God before witnesses. So…How can they knowingly enter into a marriage, in the Christian church, a marriage that they have plans to end after a certain period of time - definitely before death. Agreeing to marry for 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years would not be recognized at all as a Christian marriage. And the church has to bless the marriage or they are not married in the eyes of the church (of God?) I am as confused as baqar when it is continually mentioned that mutah can be with people of the book when it is known that it is a major sin for Christians to have sex outside of (Christian) marriage…. so if they go ahead anyway, are they still really a Christian? - as they don't follow the rules of their religion? I dont think it can be done from their side. Now people that call themselves Christian but dont practice their religion - they may agree to contract mutah - but then - are you really marrying a Christian or just one who uses the term Christian. Does it matter? Does the person have to be a practising Christian?

    Nisfa Deenakum = half of your religion Also, it's 'Humayraa', not 'Khumayraa'. Itra is more 'family' or 'progeny' rather than household. When the Seyyid says that there are 4000 narrations about Aisha, he then says and there are only about 40 about Fatema. Saree3atul lihaaq bih, not 'sareeatul li haqebate' - she will catch up to him quickly; i.e. she will be the first to join him in Janna. Barak Allah feek for your efforts.

    Ate/Eating/Will Eat?

    Salaam to all, So, my wait for Mangosteens is finally over. Somebody got me a packet of them and here's a little review: Here they are after receiving them and removing the plastic film: They are firm with tough outer skin (few millimeters thick, fruit doesn't require refrigeration) and can be opened by pressing the fruit hard. I however, made use of a knife to cut the rind slightly and then used my hands to pull it apart. Here I'm cutting the rind: Once you have opened it fully, the fruit inside will expose itself - arranged like the sections of an orange. The white flesh of the fruit is sweet and tangy in taste and depending on the age of the fruit, each of the white sections will (or won't) have a seed inside. I found the fruit to be gelatinous and it melted in my mouth almost as soon as I ate it. It can be a bit tricky to hold the fruit as it slips easily from your hand (dropped a few of them). Use of spoon to scoop it up or a fork is recommended. A few sections I ate had the texture of a banana (I can't imagine something else at the moment but think of a very ripe banana, though sweet and tangy). So, anyway that was my little review on this exotic fruit I had the opportunity to eat. Did I like it? - Yes, it was an experience. Will I eat it again? - Sure. Is this the best fruit as claimed? - I beg to differ :D !

    Lol :dry: It would be like a vacation to do nothing but cook, clean, and raise my children. Not that it isn't hard work, but it is very rewarding fun work most of the time. I don't really enjoy cleaning, but I like to cook, and very much enjoy spending time with my kids teaching them the things they need to know. Maybe someday if I win the lottery or whatever, I'll try it.

    Thoughts (2010-2016) [ARCHIVE]

    What is gambling? It is a game of chance. “They ask you about intoxicants and games of chances. Say: in both of them there is a great sin...”(Surah al-Baqarah 2:219) It isnt dependent on the percentage of probability or if there will always be winners. If you are waging money in which the outcome is uncertain on your part then it is haram. Meaning, if you are losing money in which you can never be certain you will gain it back then it is haram, even if someone else wins. You are betting your hard earned money on a foolish system in which the outcome is by chance, if any to begin with. It also can become an addiction and thus adds more reason to its permissibility. Also it is an OBLIGATION upon a muslim to give to the poor, so by doing such a thing in which it is reasoned upon chance, giving to the poor out-weighs such a doing. If the lottery was with no condition (ie no money loan to the lottery company to chance out a winning ticket) then it would have been fine. Here is an example: Is the bank allowed to run such lotteries? If the bank is conducting the raffle without any conditions from their customers, but only to promote their business, then there is nothing wrong with it and whoever wins is allowed to receive the prize amount, as this falls under Unknown Owner after obtaining the consent of the Imam or his representative, in case of Government banks or Company banks. In case of Public or individual banks. This permission is not required. However, such raffle is not allowed if the prize amount is paid to a customer under an agreement for loan etc. even if amount is paid after winning the raffle, as this was previously promised by the bank Sorry sister, but it is still haram no matter what the intention for it is the action itself is the root of all evil. Let me give you an example, you cannot steal from the rich to feed the poor. To reiterate, see, giving money for a raffle is totally different from lottery because, first and foremost you are not gambling. You are donating your money to an organization (usually of need) and getting a prize is just a plus. The prize has nothing to do with your donation, there is no chance on the money you have given. http://www.al-islam.org/contemporary-legal-rulings-in-shii-law-ayatullah-ali-al-husayni-as-seestani/6-lottery http://www.al-islam.org/greater-sins-volume-1-ayatullah-sayyid-abd-al-husayn-dastghayb-shirazi/fourteenth-greater-sin#gambling-and-wine-cause-avarice-and-enmity

    You aren't in horrible shape. You will remain marriageable for quite some time, just focus on your studies, enjoy them, try to find a co op program so you can gain some experience as well. Focusing on something you can control i.e your studies/interests will give you a lot of needed confidence and make you desirable to women. This is just me, but I wouldn't even think of marriage in your situation, unless of course you stumble upon a very good match.

    Mut'ah With A Non Believer

    Look, if you're trying to justify this to yourself, you should be honest to yourself and not drag Islam into it. Cleaner that way. Being divorced myself and in the in between, I can understand the frustrations and loneliness. The urge for companionship is strong. But be honest to yourself that if you're ready to have a relationship with someone with no belief in God or revealed religion, that it is companionship is the driving motivation for you, not a desire to "practice your religion." That's rationalization. You can't practice your religion better by violating one of its clear laws. It doesn't compute. I kind of took a look down this road last year - not too far, but took a look, just to kind of reassure myself that I'm desirable and that if things got really bad waiting it out, that there's a temporary emergency exit. But I saw enough to realize it's not a viable path. What kind of relationship can you have with someone beyond a certain point if you don't share belief in that most important thing. With a Christian or Jew, there are differences, but the relationship is only for a time and you share enough belief in God, prophets, revealed books, that it's not like you're speaking alien languages to each other. The best case you could get with an atheist is a relaxed sort of tolerant type who accepts religion as part of your character as a lifestyle choice the same way someone else likes some exotic food she doesn't really understand. She won't bother you for eating it, but she'll be upset if you ever try to bring it to share it. And ultimately relationships are about sharing yourself. How can you go along with not being able to share something important to you? If you're in university, maybe a better plan is to join a multi-faith discussion club. You'll learn something, you'll meet people who share belief, and maybe you'll meet a temporarily compatible girl there.

    When Nawaz Sharif was elected prime minister every sane observer feared that Pakistan would again have a tilt toward Saudi-led block given Sharifs amicable ties with the "custodians of the Two Holy Places" and that's exactly what's happening. The previous government, despite its incompetence and corruption, at least cultivated better ties with Iran (a neighbour) and refused to do Saudi's bidding and declined to take sides in what was quickly metamorphosing into a Shia-Sunni fight in the Middle East. No longer. Here's the deal: Pakistan, always cash-strapped, reeling under IMF so called bailout packages, needs a lot of cash to get going. That's what the Saudis and their Gulf friends have aplenty: Dollars. In return, they want the Pakistan Ordnance Factory to churn out heavy weaponry to be airlifted to Jordan, which would then be smuggled into Syria. Apparently the West has baulked from supporting the Al-Qaida affiliated gangs in Syria, that's why the Saudis have turned to Pakistan to procure weapons since they don't make anything themselves. The fatass Bahrain King has asked for in-service military personnel, officers and commandos to be employed in Bahrain with the assistance of Pakistan arm. The army has refused to send its serving soldiers and instead offered retired Pakistani army personnel to spearhead Bahraini forcces.There are already quite a few Pakistani officers in Bahrain. Now there will be more. Amid all this the most farcical thing is that Pakistan itself is burning everyday with Takfiri terrorism. There will be serious repercussions for taking Saudi side and a failure to contain terrorism would be one of them. If just Iran decides to step in and starts pumping in guns and money to Shias who want to take it, you'll have Syria II here. Just when you thought Paki establishment has learned something from the past, you get the renewal of the same policies.

    Waqifi And Zaydi Narrators

    Sunnis, Zaidis and Waqifis if they ever exist, are all equal. An example of hadith that is accepted from Sunnis is hadith of Ghadir An example of hadith that is not accepted from Sunnis is hadith about virtues of Mo'awyiah Any opinion of Sunnis even if it was in accordance with Ahlulbayt teachings, is wrong as long as it is an opinion. An example of opinion vs narration is the hadith of ghadir, although we accept the hadith of ghadir (at least as historical fact) we do not accept their interpretation of the hadith ( That it meant that Ali was prophet friend). Same rule can be applied on any sect. There were men called children of fadhaal , they were good hadith narrators and compilers but they had another extra imam, a son of Imam Sadiq, plus our imams. Our Imams orders were to take their narrations but leave their opinions. The Waqifi selection in that site is not really waqifi per se. It is a 12er traditions that been compiled by 12ers, taught by 12ers imams, filtered and corrected by 12ers imams, copied and distributed by the order of 12ers imams. Although some of the men of their chain are waifs but the content of the hadith is the words of Imam Sadiq and the content plus the meaning when coupled in categorized books were approved by the later Imams.

    Christianity Is Created By Paul

    This is a very interesting topic, because the difference between believing something yourself, and to force your believes on others - is big. This is something that one has to like about Islam, that it is trying to protect people from being led astray. Christianity had some attempt like this a long time ago, but it all ended in disaster where your girls were burnt on fires and similar craziness. In Islam - it is very serious - it is about your life. To an atheist religion is like a "hobby" or interest, it is not about life and death. So they do not understand why this is such a serious topic. I turned this around in my head, and said to my self, what if my daughter was tricked to follow some sect that wanted her to be part of a mass suicide. Would I freak out and get my guns out... hmm probable. So to a Muslim father that has a daughter that someone is trying to convert to some other religion - he is faced with the danger of his daughter losing her life... So - to me it is very acceptable that there is a penalty for this. But only from the perspective that there is a God. I don't believe that there is a God, but I have to accept this law - as billions of people is a good indication that he does exist, and one had to accept that people fight for their life - being it their earthly or their eternal life. I understand Atheist that don't agree to this, but I do not understand Christians that object to how Islam is doing this. They should agree completely and understand completely - because God does exist to them.

    Christianity Is Created By Paul

    You said to HI Ali Musaaa, "I know I am making a point about Religion and then people who mis-use the religion. a distinction solitair seems to overlook." You are absolutely judging Islam by the actions of some Muslims, but me that is not a Muslim and not a Christian, have no motive to do judge any of them. You are in fact in several things you have written, not separating the people that mis-use the religion from the religion it self. I am on the other hand clear on this, last time in post 271: "Does that mean that it is true ? No, it simply means that the people that followed and used Christianity over the course of history - are worse than the people that followed Islam. What that means for the religion i can not judge." BIBLE: About the Bible. My criticism of the bible is that the bible is extremely complicated, un-available - and you probable need a degree in theology to understand something, you probable need to know Hebrew, Armaic, Koine, or perhaps Syriac. You need your contextual analysis and what have you... just as you described, and definitely have to accept that the Bible is not enough as you need other sacred scriptures and the Magesterium .... as you say. bla bla bla to get it. And that is my point ! So why do you disagree ? You are saying it yourself ! When I talk about the Bible - I say - it would be very strange if God gave his word to man in a book they could not understand and read.That is where you and I do not agree. I think it is completely ridiculous that God did this. So my source is YOU ! Based on what YOU say to me, i think the Bible is not the word of God in its current form. It is completely confusing and full of contradictions that requires years of theology studies and what not to decipher, as it has obviously been manipulated away from what God would have "written". QUR'AN: It requires very little to read it, and i have no problem at all to follow and understand it. Judging the religion: Your said: "You are also making the often repeated mistake of judging a religion based on the actions of its so-called believers rather than the religion itself." I said: that the blood dripping history of the Catholic Church does not mean that Christianity is bad, but that the people that followed it was worse than Muslims. This is about the people not the religion. My advice is therfor repeated, read before you type. RESPONDS FROM MUSLIMS: The Qur'an is the only book i read without any guidance of any sort. I have not heard any screams from Muslims over my understanding of the Qur'an. Now is that not interesting. I can read it and understand it. RESPONDS FROM CHRISTIANS: But the bible, i read it and get massive objections from Christians all the time. I simply do not understand it correctly and so forth. What ? How much am i lacking in intelligence ? or maybe it has nothing to do with intelligence, maybe i just don't have that incredible list of tools you are referring to that is required to understand anything of the bible. I have not written anything about the Bible that I have not first discussed with friends that are (2 priests and one theology professor). They are on the other hand Christians, and I therefor want to discuss what people can add on this forum. But it is just chaos in every post when it comes to the bilble.

    Witnessing Allah In Everything

    There isn't one correct way to interpret these sayings. rather each individual will interpret them (the sayings in question) according to his or her own capacity. The people who have a higher understanding of these sayings may even even sound wrong to those who have a limited understanding. There are also people who think they have a higher understanding of these sayings but in fact do not have the level of understanding they think they have (they just wish they did). So we just have to ask God to increase our knowledge all the time just as the Prophet (S) asked! indeed. Allahu alim

    Getting Someone To Hurry Up

    Rsa, taking your time is one thing and not responding is another. It's quite rude to not respond to someone and how will the process progress if you dont commuincate? You need to commuincate to understand the person. Work, it looks like their not putting much affert into it, which may mean one of the two, they are uninterest or the dont want to marry.... If you write alot and someone response with a few sentances, then I would not waste my engery on such person. Dont tell me a 30 something is shy, they should be better then that and at least respond... Maybe some have not talked to the oppsite gender, but they cant expect to get married without commuincating. We wonder why theirs a high rate of divorce, the lack of commuincation is the answer to that... People dont commuincate will from the start and they end up wondering why it didnt work... If she doesnt commuincate,skip her and find another person, no one has time to waste on such matters. Or you can find a way to make her less nervous and to interact, maybe you can realt to her. That its okay to be nervous, that we all have been nervous. Tell her to bring someone with her when you meet up,make her feel comftorable.

    I was sort of in your situation, was using a 6-year old 200$ PC, which means a 10 minute wait if I want to go to anywhere on the internet. Was basically browsing on the phone lol I brought myself a Macbook Pro w/Retina, and it might be a little above 1000$ with student discount, and I am extremely satisfied with it. Plus it is really, really light than the original Macbook lol. If you are strict about the 1000$ price limit, I suggest the Macbook Air ($999 w/student discount), it is as light as air, really, and works amazing. Buying an apple product will not disappoint you, I am really happy with my purchase, plus all my downloading will not give me a virus lol Or you can even go to Apple.ca, and buy the laptop on instalments, or buy it monthly through a 12-month pay period via a Chase Credit Card on Bestbuy or Futureshop (they sometimes deny giving the credit card to students as far as I know) Both the Air and Pro with Retina are light, fast, efficient, virus-free, and comes with an amazing battery life (12-hour;8 hour) and they are equipped with the all new SDD hard drive, which means your computer will be fast, and will boot up in 4 seconds :D

    The verse isn't referring to them, the words "awli l amr" in this verse are speaking about the infallible due to the fact that Allah is commanding you to follow them unconditionally. This was already debated and answered in the same thread, I said "we have two necessary principles. 1- The guidance of the Imam.2- The protection of the Imam. If the guidance of the Imam is necessarily present (Allah appoints him), but then the people based upon their free will and choice choose to abuse and kill this Imam, then another necessary principle shall come into play that calls for the protection of the Imam, this is because the Imam carries with him the door of mercy which Allah uses to put onto his creation and also because the Imam carries the entire affairs of the Muslims in his hands including the existence of the religion itself. This necessary principle of protecting the Imam thus logically overrides the first principle due to the fact that it is more pressing and more reasonable to put the Imam into ghayba lest it would cause his death, nor it is more beneficial to not give Imams at all in the first place, the only logical alternative left is an Imam being protected. I hope this is clear to you now." This was also clearly refuted. I said "You said that "atee" is explicitly only used for Allah and his messenger(3) not for the Uli l Amr, this is also wrong, the word is also explicitly used for the Uli l amr. يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ You made the following claims, which I have already responded to but I will again, I don't mind. You claimed: 1- The verse is conditional, in that if disputes arise with the Uli l amr we are to return to the Qur'an and Sunnah, hence the Uli l amr are obeyed conditionally and are not ma'sum. 2- The verse says "return to the Allah and his Messenger", it does not say "return to the Uli l Amr", hence the Uli l Amr are not infallible. Regarding the first point, let us look at the verse. يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ ۖ فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ There are 4 entities mentioned in this verse, and only one being addressed (the believers). The four entities are Allah, the messenger, the people of authority, and the believers, the believers are being addressed only, this is obvious and agreed upon. The word "minkum" is an adverb of place, not of identity. For example we find in the following verse بَلْ عَجِبُوا أَن جَاءَهُم مُّنذِرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فَقَالَ الْكَافِرُونَ هَٰذَا شَيْءٌ عَجِيبٌ "But they wonder that there has come to them a Warner from among themselves. So the Unbelievers say: "This is a wonderful thing!" The Arabic uses "minhum" regarding the Prophet (as) and the kuffar, however no one says that this means that the prophet (as) is a part of the kuffar (nauzbillah) even the word the word "minhum (from them) is present. This is an adverb of place and not of identity, likewise when we read the verse : يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ ۖ It is not that the people of authority are equal or of the same identity of those being address in this verse, but rather it is an adverb of place meaning that the people of authority are present among them and not actually "them", and this is absolutely clear. Secondly this verse is addressing the believers by the indicative phrase "ya ayyahallatheena". Thirdly when the Qur'an says that if disputes arise to refer to the Qur'and and Sunnah, this is not talking about disputes being arisen between the believers and the people of authority because the Qur'an does not address themnor does it include them grammatically, but rather it is referring to the group of Muslims arguing from among themselves (this also ties into the second point which I'll get to). We know this because the verse is addressing the 1st entity (the believers) only throughout the entire verse. Please take note of the pronouns and their related words which I will color in red. يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ ۖ فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ The word "dispute" has nothing to do with disputing with nor correcting the "Uli l Amr" and this is clearly shown by the grammar. As regards to your second point "2- The verse says "return to the Allah and his Messenger", it does not say "return to the Uli l Amr", hence the Uli l Amr are not infallible." Firstly, the verse is saying to the believers who argue among themselves to refer to Islamic sources, that's it. Obviously this includes those who hold and interpret the Islamic sources (the Uli l Amr). The reason they are not mentioned is because obviously they are not revealing their own sources but rather are using the Qur'an and Sunnah."

    Saddam Portrait London Restaurant

    Actually manyh of these types are fully aware of such crimes but don't care They justify such actions in their own twisted logic. At this point saddam (god curse him) has become a symbol for many people to represent Arab-sunni "resistance" against iranians and shias. Also their history is ripe with historical revisionism, and turning criminals in to great leaders. Their religion is very simple, and in turn they are simple minded people. Every thing can be forgiven with just a few words, and throwing some money around. Saddam is the best example of this in modern times (although like i said their history is ripe with such examples). Saddam was a butcher and when to extravagant lengths in his crimes against people and against Allah (swt) - such that very few in all the history of humanity rival him. Yet despite that (and despite the well known nature of his crimes to the entire world), their leaders and "scholars" all around the world praised him as a shaheed and a great leader etc, because he built some masajid in iraq and donated money to various arab causes. These are the roots of bani ummayah still deep in their minds. Muawyah committed an abundance of crimes, but just using a few fake ahadeeth and building some masjids and claiming he was doing it in name of Islam, he fooled the whole nation. These people have become accustomed to dictator and tyrant - one after the other all ruling in the name of Allah for 14 centuries, usually with the implicit or explicit support of the religious establishment. So now it is ingrained in their mind and accpted that their leaders will all be seeped in corruption and killing, and that all of that can be forgiven because they were political necessities, and at the end of the day the person (in this case saddam) said the shahada - and built masajid and crushed the rawafidh.

    Who Uses Online Marriage Sites?

    Describe yourself (girl): "I am fairly religious, pray regularly, fast, do hijab, go to majalis. I am easy going, I like humour, I like shopping and eating out sometimes, but not so much that it puts dent in the husband's wallet. So basically that's it". Describe the spouse you want (girl): "I want a husband who is religious, who is understanding, compassionate, caring, helpful. He must be able to support me without taking help from the parents. Masters education is must not less."

    Love -

    (wasalam) There are many kinds of love... I'm assuming you are talking about love for your fellow man/woman or rather love for mankind in general. One particular incident in the Quran mentions Imam Ali (as) and Lady Fatima's (as) boundless love and devotion for Allah's creation http://www.al-islam.org/islamic-stories/nazr-vow-Allah-be-fulfilled In short, when both their sons, Hassan (as) and Hussain (as) got very ill, Ali (as) and Fatima (as) made a vow (nazr) to fast for three days after they would get better. And most certainly, they got better. During each evening when the family would gather to break the fast, a needy person would knock at their door, and instantly the whole family gave away their entire food to that person. For three consecutive nights, they slept without any food whatsoever. It was in appreciation of these sacrifices, that Almighty Allah revealed the whole 'Surah al-Dahr', which contains, among other things, the following Ayat: “They (Ahlul Bait) fulfill vow and fear a day the evil of which shall be spreading far and wide” (Surah Al-Dahr, 76: Verse7) This is just one among a plethora of recorded traditions and incidents which shows tremendous sacrifice in order to please Allah. Ask for more and we will be happy to quote more.

    Mut'ah With A Non Believer

    How would your children be raised if she were to become pregnant? No preventative method except abstinence is fail proof. That is probably why it is not allowed.

    This is how a leader speaks and exposes the party-of-fitnah! -In a very short message/answer to the questions, he sends a veryyyy profound and STRONG message, not only to the Wahabi-puppet states but also to the western-hypocrites. Coming from someone who has good diplomatic relations with the west and has no problem with them. -No politician in recent months (even Assad or those in Lebanon) spoke for Syria as good as he did for Syria! -No other leader summarized and concluded the entire ZioSalafis involvement in the region and their hands in funding and organization their terror allies such as Alqaida and others as he did without any hesitation. I read his message via Alarabiya the other day and posted on this forum, but thanks to MEMRI, I enjoyed watching Maliki's direct wordings, where he is giving out some solid answers and slapping those who are involved in terrorizing humanity for political, financial, racial and sectarian interests and differences for decades. ------------------------------- MEMRI VIDEO

    This is how they make delicious bread back home in Iraq. Taken from a random fb page. It's really cheap too, around 1000 ID's for a bag of 15 pieces. That's 75 cents. almost free.
