    Would You Be A Second Wife?

    This is one of those questions where either 'yes' or 'no' is the correct answer For the women who say no, there is nothing in the religion that would compel you to be a second wife. You can be a mumina and reach the highest levels of Iman and be raised with Fatima Zahra(a.s), InShahAllah all while never having to be a second wife. For the women who said 'yes', then there is nothing in Islam that is stopping you from this. You can be a mumina and reach the highest levels of Iman and be raised with Fatima Zahra(a.s), InShahAllah All while being a second wife The only problem I think we have in the muslim community regarding this is that it seems sometimes that women who choose to be a second wife are looked down upon by other women and gheeba is done about them This is something that is wrong and shouldn't happen. Other than that, it's a choice which Allah(s.w.a) gives to his servants. I think the reason why polygamy is rare in the West, while it is less rare in the Middle East is 1) Polygamy is illegal in most Western Countries (despite the fact that gay marriage is now legal in most Western countries, go figure) Most people would like to stay within the law. Polygamy is not illegal in the Middle East 2) Polygamy is expensive. Since it is the man who is obligated to support the wife or wives financially, (except in mutah) and since living and maintaining even one household in most Western countries is expensive, maintaining two or more is nearly impossible. 3) Women in the West are not as 'cool' with the idea of polygamy. As can be seen from the majority of the posts here.

    Ahlulbayt as chosen Guides, as the best people, as the light of Mohammad, as people God desires to keep nothing away from save the uncleanness while purifying them perfect purification, as our Leaders, as the way towards God, you say you love these people? The Quran says it's not Mohammad the disbelievers deny but it's rather the Ayatallah that disbelievers reject. The issue is they didn't have an issue with him as human, they even accepted him. They were however allergic to his status as God's chosen trustee and Guide towards himself. It's the same with deniers of Ahlulbayt station. They hate the station they been given out of jealousy due to their love of their own heroes and own leaders that no one but Satan has inspired them to have. When the dark reality of your disbelief, your hate towards God's exalted leaders will be revealed, then you will really know how clear this matter was but how stubborn your hearts was towards the truth.

    Would You Be A Second Wife?

    Thanks, Endless, your words are much too kind and give me too much credit. I was only sharing my views after much thought and thinking. Sigh, shame that there are almost no Shia where I live. :/P.S. I am not too good to be true, there are people out there like me and credit goes to my mother for the person I am today.

    Would You Be A Second Wife?

    Clearly you haven't been living in the West like you say you were. You'll be in for a shock when you get married to a "not very religious Western muslim man".

    Wise Choices: - If you are right then there is no need to get angry. And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry. - Patience with family is love, Patience with others is respect. Patience with self is confidence. - Never think hard about the past. It brings tears. Don't think too much about the future. It brings fear. Live this moment with Allah in ur consciousness (taqwa) and a smile. -Every test in our life makes us bitter or better.Choice is ours.

    The Nostalgia Thread

    Salaam aleikum jami'an I thought we should have a thread, similar to the thoughts thread, devoted strictly to nostalgia. This could be nostalgia specific to your country/culture, or something general, or something specific to yourself or your family/friends. But I think we should lay down some rules: 1) No haraam stuff. I don't care how fun it was when you crashed your car while blasting "100 Miles and Runnin" on the stereo, don't bring it up here. 2) Don't insult other people's nostalgia. That's none of your beeswax. Let's begin. For the Iranians in the house: Remember these? http://bayanbox.ir/id/380343666810277393?view Prepare yourself for this one: Awwwwwwwwww yeah: http://orig08.deviantart.net/4f33/f/2008/337/e/a/micro_genius_1_by_xivancorex.jpg There is more to come, of course. And not just Eye-ranian stuff. Just getting the ball rolling.

    What Is "sleep" ?

    (salam) -even to the Gulf State monitor: What is sleep? Hard to experience when your littlest sister has a new, 8-day, squawk box (old Army slang for the radio --because when it powered it Squaaaaaaaaa -ked) As I wrote under Ate/Eating/Will Eat, yesterday it was 1500+ before I could get into car and go. Lebanese restaurant this time. But the other women bring their "auditory terrorists". It is not like an old cow that starts bellowing all night. You just go back to sleep knowing the dumb cow is smart enough to eventually figure it out. This 8-day old noises a staccato "ah-aahh, ah-aahh, ah-aahh ..." It must believe it is a peacock. Then there this 3 month girl does a fading "mee-ah, mee-ahh". She must think she is a cat. And this two month boy goes "cah -- cah --cah -- " like a crow. And all the pre-schools are magpies training for the Marathon. The Doctor this morning was happy, the 8-day old gain 5 oz in 3 days, the slight jaundice disappeared, and passed with flying colors. Ahamduallah. One 'bright' spot in one week. Yarrabi.

    Then go out of the room xD. Being too much time alone isn't good xP. You can do a lot of things in your free time, find a hobby. For example, I'm investing my time lately into learning more about cooking. Not only you have a good time and even socialoze with the person that teaches you but you also can make peiple happy through tasty foods. And its one of the best feelings we can have xD.

    I heard myself laugh like Muttley reading this. If youre a dexterous, compassionate person with an artistic eye then consider becoming a dentist and moving to the UK and working for the NHS. The world cant have enough skillful, caring dentists and we really need them here.

    Greetings, Yes, however in Islam praying is different from remembering constantly. Praying or Dua Is a request/ supplication. Salat the islamic 5 times a day which the english word unfortunately again is prayer , is actually God's command being done thru out the existence and creations .And if done properly we should be able to either witness the behind the scenes or get an understanding about it. Trying to remember something constantly is different. Zikr or remembrance is trying to remember and connect to the Creator who is doing all these great works, and to get to know who he is actually. To remember means that you have experienced something and you are trying to remember that. So we are ordered to constantly repeat - Allah - silently within our selves and think about Allah and his works . This remembering method is so high that it is considered higher than prayer in the Quran . "Recite what is revealed to you of the Scripture, and perform the prayer. The prayer prevents indecencies and evils. And the REMEMBRANCE of Allah is GREATER. And God knows what you do. (29: 45) "- Holy Quran Because remembering , along with thinking , needs alot of focus and mental training. As the whole existence is a sign post indicating towards him , so we can remember what our souls experienced before we came to this worldly earth , and forgot what we had experienced with our lord. Satan does not want us to achieve this because if we we achieve in constantly remembering and thinking about Our Lord,We can experience something beyond our imagination. All Gods prophets were constantly remembering him. That is why they could understand and do things beyond other humans, as they were directly in connection with God all the time. Hence they could split the ocean, bring dead to life, etc... It is very difficult to do constantly remember and think about our Lord at all times , even while talking , working etc. But it is showing priority to our creator. If you show priority to him , he will show priority to you. Islam is the religion of the mind, that is why it had given us a method of mind control and training. ------- Who REMEMBER Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give THOUGHT to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], "Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire." 3:191 And that is what scares satan , is to loose that control over our minds .
