    why? I think he just made a correct or semi correct description. Nice guy dose not exist if he is going to be a doormat for anyone, a girl or a man, not even to your parents. Some self respect is essential to be truly nice!

    Wherever this term originated, the Imams embraced it. Rafd is not just about rejecting historical personalities who lived and died 1400 years ago. Rafd is the timeless rejection of all evil - the evil inclinations of the nafs, and the evil of oppressive rulers. When we disassociate from personalities who were arrogant or violent, we are disassociating from their qualities and characteristics, and abandoning any resemblance of them within our selves. To accept these figures is to be numb and hard-hearted to their atrocities. Rafd is supposed to be beautiful, but those who curse openly with vanity and conceit spoil it.

    We don't choose relatives. I hope we could, but we can't choose them. People cannot choose their parents, but in the same way parents can't choose their daughters and sons. Experience has truly shown me that any dislike I can hold towards any of my relatives is actually some sort of hate I hold towards myself. When someone important to us says anything that hurt us, it is not that person the one who has hurt us, but ourselves, by allowing his or her words affect us and harm us. If I took my dad's words always seriously, I would be emotionally broken. But I have learned to contextualize his words, to understand he has his own flaws, and his own errors, and that I myself have to think by myself and lead my own life (because after all I am free). I allowed myself to disagree (and there is nothing greater than that to build a character). There is no reason to be unhappy when the problems can be solved. Really, if you stop to think about it, there is none. I don't know you in person, but I have met you online, and only you, not any of your relatives. And what I saw is a nice kind and funny man I would like to actually meet (and be sure I'm extremely picky in meeting people). As for the rest leave it behind. I don't know what you are actually living, but it is not something recent but something you have been some long time bearing. Whatever it is, start by identifying what you don't want in your life. Do it even if you don't know what you really want. You will eventually know your path, once you get rid of everything that you know you actually don't want. Life is full of hardship and suffering, but you will be able to bear it when you are working towards a goal that can fulfill you, a goal that will compensate you properly.

    Advice To Boost My Spirituality

    Got any talents? I make the best bread in the Uk. It's an awesome hobby (it's not my hobby, but it can be yours), because it focuses the mind on an activity (an activity that pre-dates history), and you're making something useful. Fermentation is a fantastic world. If not, you need to get out of SC and do something in the real world. Get a small allotment plot and plant some veg. Produce a film. Translate some arabic books (I could use some help..).... Denmark is dark and miserable and full of suicidal Danes. No surprise you're on the edge... but that doesn't mean of course that you'll end up like them

    Bismillah Ta'la Her name was Mildred (Mickey ) Smart. She was born in 1923 in Long Beach, California, USA. She was Christian, she was a very kind person who always looked after me and my brothers and sisters when we were kids. Some of the best times of my childhood were at my grandparents house. She was one of the last generation of traditional American housewives. She never drove a car but she managed to get everything done in the house and take care of every member of the family. She is succeeded by three sons, Richard (my father), Tim, and Mike, and one daughter Patricia, 6 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. She will be remembered for her kindness and generosity, always willing to help someone in need. Please remember her in your dua'.

    A TOTAL HUMAN RIGHTS HYPOCRISY

    PLEASE SPREAD THIS - USE SOCIAL MEDIA OR OTHER MEANS SO THAT EVERYONE CAN BE INFORMED OF THIS - BECAUSE MAINSTREAM MEDIA CLEARLY HAVE AN AGENDA NOT TO EXPOSE THE FACT THE MAJORITY OF THE SO-CALLED 'MODERATE' REBELS ARE HARDLINERS. Recently you may have heard on the news that the leader of islamist rebel group 'Jaysh al Islam' has recently been killed by Assad. Quite astonishingly, Ken Roth, executive director of Human rigths watch for over 22 years and on a very big salary stated this!: He is trying to continue to forward his theory. But the problem is, he must surely be ignorant of Zahran Alloush: 1. Here is a video of him, with subtitles, where he explicitly praises Sheikh Osama Bin Laden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lcvz-sgyuu0 Watch 2:15 onwards! 2. Here is a video of him pledging his alliance with Jabhat al Nusra, the Al-Qaeda affiliate in syria designated a terrorist group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zajo2GeKyV4 The quote: " Alloush addressed the Al-Qaeda organization Jabhat al-Nusra as "our brothers", saying that "The summary of this issue is that we in Jaish Al-Islam praise our brothers of the Nusrah Front and we don't consider them Khawarij as is propagated against us, We fight alongside them and they fight alongside us" 3. And here is a video of him, calling for the ethnic cleansing and genocide of alawites, and shia muslims - turning the whole syria issue into a secterian one (when the majority of Assads army are SUNNI'S): Here is a video of his millitia (Jaysh al Islam) parading women and men as Human Shields.

    Advice To Boost My Spirituality

    Perhaps you could see someone professional, even temporarily? Lots of people do, especially during the winter months in some places. I'm not psychologist, but I know Seasonal Affective Disorder is a real problem. I find even a bit of exercise for a few minutes outside helps.( Sometimes I had to force myself when I was young and feeling like that) Also, what Hameedeh says. Please take care of your nutrition and especially your sleep. If you don't sleep, it can feel worse quickly. I really think you should reach out to folks online if nowhere else ,to talk to, like you are doing, but maybe some of the men you trust in here would be good to PM. One of my sons suffered from depression in his younger years. ( All of my kids have had bouts of it). He's just fine now, but he was pretty down for a while. It was good for him to have people to reach out to. Sometimes even to good folks outside of the family.

    Are you sleeping 8 hours a night? Are you eating fruits and vegetables every day? Do you take a daily vitamin? If you lose interest in eating, you need to see a medical doctor.

    /me pinches laithe's cheek You are in a great age man: to learn, to experiment, to discover, to meet new people, to leave behind others, to choose whatever path in life you like with passion. In the end, you are in an age of opportunities. Whatever saddens you can be left behind, especially in your age.

    Thank you all for your kind words. There is something very interesting about my grandmother that I've often though about As I said above, she had 4 children, three boys and one girl. Of those children three of them had their own children. My father had three me, my brother and my sister, and her daughter, my aunt had one. My uncle Mike has two children neither of them have their own children. So of the 6 grandchildren, the ones who had children, me, my brother, and my sister are all muslim. As some of you know me, my brother and sister all reverted to Islam, at separate times. So my grandmother, who is Christian, has 13 great grandchildren, all are Muslim(alhamdulillah).

    That is so true. I personally have been emotionally bruised due to my father's words, though, I know he has been through so much yet still managed to wade through all the difficulties and obstacles. Sometimes I try to put myself in his shoes and try to imagine what I would do if I were him. We all have our flaws and limitations and it's good to acknowledge that when we are in such situations; it gives us a reason to forgive the other person and us being likely to commit similar mistakes.

    Sex addiction/need advice.

    Layla.....I would like for you to read what I have to say with an open mind and as an observer. Take a deep breath and step out of the picture. You are now not Layla but Cynthia, an African-Irish girl living on the outerskirts skirts of Antartica, with two long purple pigtails, and a penguin sidekick, named Virgil. You look into your golden, glitter binoculars of truth and you spot Layla and her playa husband-for the sake of this tutorial lets name him Gino. Layla seems to be like a super nice girl, whose motivated to learn and practice Islam more from someone she loves , trusts, and makes her feel good about herself. Gino, knows so much of about Islam. Ask him anything and he can cite the hadith, the page number, and has memorized bits of the Quran. He is very handsome, has a great sense of humor, and is an achiever in life. He attracts many girls in his life and it makes him feel good about himself. He agreed to do mutah with Layla because he was attracted to her and because he knew she was the type of girl that would let him get away with stuff. Everyday Layla feels pangs of jealousy and her passion for Gino grows fiercely everyday. In some crazy physics theory, the more girls talk to Gino, the more his value grows in her mind, and so she reminds herself that "hey at least he married me and not them. Inside, Layla feels a fire burning in her heart, and she tries her best to try and win over Gino, day after day, but she never seems to be able to touch his heart- and it becomes addicting. She thinks to herself maybe it's me. Maybe my jealousy is the reason. Maybe if I put on a little more eyeliner.....maybe if.......She find herself not being able to reach this standard to satisfy Gino, and she becomes depressed and unsure of her self worth, day, by day.....until she doesn't know who she is anymore. Even though Gino hasn't come out and said it, his actions clearly tell her YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH. And that stings her, but then her passion for Gino drives Layla to put her super woman cape on, and now she must protect him from the sins. She must save Gino from eternal hell. It's her duty, because without her Gino will be lost. Gino NEEDS me she thinks. But in reality, Gino can only save himself. No matter how many attempts Layla makes, the final decision is up to Gino. So now we have Layla attempting to be Gino's supporter while slowly deteriorating and losing her self confidence day by day. She has no life anymore and it's all about Gino, and he never seems to return the same level of passion she has for him. Sometimes his sweet words here and there feel like she is getting thru him, but he only sprinkles those around just to keep her guessing, and so he always has her where he wants. After a long period of time, Layla notices that her interest in Islam is declining because Gino's actions start making her generalize that all men are like this and she begins thinking to herself " Islam is not fair to women" She starts to question Islam and is left in a state of confusion. She doesnt know what being loved is anymore and the only so called love she knows is the little pebbles that Gino throws at her here and there. She robs herself out of real happiness and thinks she will never be close to finding someone with half of Ginos' qualities and decides to remain in this abusive relationship. Anyway Layla.....you might read this and acknowledge all of this, but still hold on to your relationship with him, because you dont feel strong enough to let go or because you want to try and save him.....or because you "love" him.... its all up to you in the end if you wanna keep with this guy, or try to find someone who respects you enough not to cheat on you.

    Concerning how imams were Chosen

    Bismillah. Salaam. The hadith of the Twelve Imams is an important hadith, which is present in most Sunni books of reference. In Sahīh Muslim, Jaber Bin Samarah is quoted as saying that, "I heard the Holy Prophet of God (s) say that Islam would continuously be honorable and glorious until twelve caliphs ruled over the Muslim nation. Then he added something that I didn't hear, so I asked my father about the meaning and he informed me that the prophet said all of them would be from the tribe of the Quraysh. "[1] The same Hadith has been narrated in Sahīh Bukhari,[2] as well as Sahīh Tirmidhi,[3] and Sahīh Abi Dāwūd,[4] and also in the Musnad of Ahmad Ibn Hanbal,[5] etc.… However, as for the content and phrasing of the hadith, there are different narration. Some narrations have the phrase “twelve caliphs (successors)”, others have “twelve amirs” while a third group speak of the guardianship and rule of twelve individuals. However, it is evident that all of them refer to rule and guardianship. At the same time, in the majority of these traditions that have been passed to us through various ways, the phrase 'all of them would be from the tribe of Quraysh’ is present, while in other traditions that 'all of them would be from Banī Hāshim' has been mentioned. [6] Most of these traditions say that the Holy Prophet (s) whispered the last part of his words in a confidential manner, which shows there had been people present who were against the idea that all the Prophet's successors (a) would be from tribe of the Quraysh or from the Banī Hāshim. Anyway, the interpretation of this tradition, which is present in reference books and approved by all legitimate Muslim scholars, is totally clear for the followers of the Ahlul-Bayt, that being the twelve imams. However, followers of other faiths have not been successful in finding a clear interpretation for this tradition, because the first caliphs were four, the Caliphs of Banū Ummayah were 14, and the Banī Abbas Caliphs were thirty seven, none of which corresponds with the twelve mentioned leaders. No cut and paste job or mathematical operation will make these numbers correspond. Moreover, there are traditions from both Sunni and Shia scholars which contain the name of twelve Imams as believed by the Shias. Some other traditions refer to the name of the first as "Imam Ali" (a) and the last as "Imam Mahdi" (a), while some others refer to the third "Imam Hussain" (a), stating that the Holy Prophet (s) pointed to Imam Hussain (a) and said, "This grandson of mine is an Imam, the offspring of an Imam, the brother of an Imam, and the father of nine other Imams". [7] Although there are plenty of authentic traditions concerning imamate, this much will suffice for our purpose here. [8] [1] Sahih Muslim, Volume. 3, page 1453, Tabe Beirut dar Al ehya Al taras Al arabi [2] Sahih Bukhari vol. 3 ninth part, page 101 [3] Sahih Tirmidhi, vol. 4 page 501 Tabe Dar Al ehya Al Taras Alarabi, Beirut [4] Sahih Abi Dawud, vol. 4 [5] Refer to Montakhabul-Athar, page 12 and Ihqaqul-Haqq, vol. 13 [6] Yanabi’ul-Mawaddah, page 445 chapter 77 [7] Kashful-Murad, page 314 (Qom Mostafavi publication) [8] This answer has been prepared according to the interpretation of the Quran’s message, Vol. 9 (Imamate, Leadership, in the Holy Quran). With Duas. Narsis.

    As if ´nice guys´ deserve a woman as a prize for being nice or something. Leave women to their own choices . I often wonder how much this bad boy narrative has any reality to it and is not some fable born out of bitterness. As if most people prefer getting together with an instable semi-criminal or something.
