    This is classic orientalism: This magazine is trying to fetishize the hijab for a deranged male audience. According to Linda Sarsour, this magazine actually contacted four hijabis for their piece. Three turned it down, but Noor took the opportunity. So the magazine was not interested in her, they were interested in sexualizing the hijab. For someone who has made "modesty" her number one issue, she shouldn't be flaunting it in that magazine and her selfies. Everyone knows who Hugh Hefner is, everyone knows what the bunny represents. This magazine has done nothing but objectify women over the years. Her feature has redirected countless Muslims to a pornographic page. Noor wants to be the first hijabi mainstream anchor. But is the hijab just a fashion statement? Why sell out to the devil? In conclusion, she should not be namecalled or threatened. But I sure hope this is not the future of Muslim women in the West. I actually followed Noor's career for years, thinking that her goal was noble. But the constant selfies with makeup, hair, and tight clothes annoyed me, and I later realized that she was not particularly talented either.

    Salam aleykum, Today I thought we would repeat all of the previous attributes so far. I think it is really important at this stage to solidify the memory before we continue or we might start to get names/attributes mixed up. I hope everyone is fine with this and iA tomorrow we add new attributes like usual again: Ar-Rahman : The All-Compassionate Ar-Rahmin : The All-Mericul Al-Malik : The Absolute Ruler Al-Quddus : The Pure One As-Salam : The Source of Peace Al-Mu'min : The Inspirer of Faith Al-Muhaymin : The Guardian Al-Aziz : The Victorius Al-Jabbar : The Compeller Al-Mutakabbir : The Greatest Al-Khaliq : The Creator Al-Bari : The Maker of Order Al-Musawwir : The Shaper of Beauty Al-Ghaffar : The Forgiving Al-Qahhar : The Subduer IA we will continue tomorrow. Eltemase dua, fi amanillah!

    Taking only 6 units this semester?

    I think he means that you and Notme have smartly chosen the best plan for yourselves. Yes, a lighter course load and taking summer classes is a good method. I have a family member who worked full time and only took one class each semester. He took 10 years to get his bachelor degree. He never regretted it.

    Salam, Ya Ali (as) Madad, Lanat upon the enemies of the Ahlulbayt (as) I work currently work for a company that is obsessed with becoming "the healthiest workplace in britain". As such, all staff here are fitness crazy. only healthy food in the canteen, activity tracking, going to the gym during lunch breaks etc. theres tonnes of things here like unlimited free fruit for all staff whenever they want. and then there's me, basically a potato who often brings parathas from home and hasnt even taken his complimentary fitness tracking device out of its box (I started working here last november) anyway one of my team mates is desperately trying to get me to sort myself out, and she linked me to this website http://www.musclefood.com/meat/certified-halal-meat.html so you can buy halal meat in bulk, and freeze/ thaw it and plan your meals accordingly. one of my biggest weaknesses is that I am ok during work hours, I can unfortunately only eat healthy here. but as soon as i get home i am HUUUUUNGRY so will eat everything that mum makes. something like this will probably help me a lot because I will be forced to plan my meals. I am hoping to track my progress here on this thread once I am back from Karbala, InshaAllah.

    My line was drawn for me. I grew into a church, and joined the leadership program in the youth group. They knew through discussions that I didn't quite believe as they did and I couldn't join the church as such when I turned 18, and I couldn't continue to lead the youth if my beliefs were contrary to the only truth, that of which only they preached. I was actually told I was going to the wrong church. They should have taught me what to believe instead of how to study. My trouble was with predestination. The idea that it is decided you are or are not worthy of heaven before the earth was made. The idea that a conversion is a free ticket to heaven, just a few forgiveness prayers and appear to live a good life. The conceptual free will. The coathanger smiles of those pretending to be predestined. I understand the sincerity. I understand the transformation, and I understand the struggle. Some people are seriously seeking God, and these man made details keep getting in the way. Truth Our "universal truths" may differ. One reason is we are quite territorial as opposed to "universal". Demographics play a big part in what you need to know, or what you need to do. What we need to learn is to recognize "God" when He is near, and when He is not. To acknowledge His presence in our daily lives and realize the path we are on...and how to fix it. Religion is secondary.

    Absolutely disgusting and disgraceful... end times... I wonder how far the mercy of the Imam(ajf) is going to stretch when he returns and absolute divine judgement with him and when the kill command comes. I cannot stress enough how extremely important it is that all muslims openly condemn this.

    why Shia hate A'isha ?

    Salaam Alaykum, When it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "Why, we only Want to make peace!" [2:11] Of a surety, they are the ones who make mischief, but they realise (it) not [2:12] Do you really think that Bibi Aisha was that naive that she went out with a full army behind her and yet she supposedly only wanted to achieve peace? Come on, get real please.

    To vent frustrations usually. People are struggling to do right in their lives, learn their religion, and showcase their faith properly to others around them. There's a strong feeling that cases like these, hounded by a relentless media machine that paints them in a positive light --undermine their efforts, make their voice irrelevant, and sell their identity to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, when one member does something deplorable, it "drags" the rest of us down and makes people feel like we're taking more steps backward. It makes our community members frustrated, and they vent to a receptive audience here.

    Hello, No moral person should use such language. Your profile says you are a Sufi. I would think the past and on going persecution of the Sufi sect would have taught you this. Declaring other groups of humans as "subhuman" has been responsible for numerous genocides in human history. And, this "subhuman" attitude towards those that have different beliefs contribute to the barbarity we see in conflicts around the World. Please focus on the tenants of your religion and moral behavior. Then, I think you will agree fellow humans, fellow brothers and sisters should not be defined as "subhuman monkeys." All the Best, David

    Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman

    Brother Umar Ibn Ali has already given a great analysis. However you failed to some of those ahadith where all the four are mentioned together and i am only choosing the ones with sahih grading: Ibn Majah It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that: The Messenger of Allah said: The most merciful of my Ummah towards my Ummah is Abu Bakr; the one who adheres most sternly to the religion of Allah is 'Umar; the most sincere of them in shyness and modesty is 'Uthman; the best judge is 'Ali bin Abu Talib; Ibn Majah Sa’d bin Tariq said: “I said to my father: ‘O my father! You prayed behind the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and behind Abu Bakr, ‘Umar and ‘Uthman, and behind ‘Ali here in Kufah for about five years. Abi Dawud Narrated Safinah: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The Caliphate of Prophecy will last thirty years; then Allah will give the Kingdom of His Kingdom to anyone He wills. Sa'id told that Safinah said to him: Calculate Abu Bakr's caliphate as two years, 'Umar's as ten, 'Uthman's as twelve and 'Ali so and so. ++++++ Infact we also have Abu Bakr (ra) missing out in the following but nobody is complaining Muwatta Imam Malik Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that Umar ibn al-Khattab and Ali ibn Abi Talib and Uthman ibn Affan drank while standing.

    Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman

    not knowing that it is Ali (ra) who has the most manaqibs in Sihah Sittah is only ignorance. Secondly, if the later two had bribed the scholars then certainly we would have found in above collections their own virtues. so that also shows how much one knows and how much one claims to know.

    Brother it seems you are argumentative, arguing for the sake of arguing. Virtually everyone has agreed with you that Haj is superior to Ziyara. The fact that they havent been been to explain it to you is not because you are right but because noone on here appears to have studied the issues so is unable to answer your points. It has been explained to me in this way. if you choose to argue away similar to your response in the matam thread then it a reflection of your lack of knowledge. Haj is a compulsory act. You have to do it . Its part of the Pillars of Islam. If you are Muslim you have to do it. Its like Salaat. Do you ask Allah for 'extra credit' for reading your daily Salaat. Your 5 daily prayers are compulsory and performing them is considered a minimum. Therefore when considering compulsory acts the 'credit' you get is limited. So having done all your wajib (compulsory) acts how do you earn extra credit. Extra credit is earned by non-compulsory acts. So extra charity over and above Zakat , extra Salaat over and above your 5. Extra fasting over and above Ramadhan. And in this case Ziyarat over and above Haj. There is an old joke in the UK that relates to this loosely. When workers from the India/Pakistan first came to the UK they found the concept of time and half for overtime. The joke being that these workers said they only wanted to work 'overtime' because it earned more. Similarly you cant earn the 'overtime' without earning the 'time'. Hope this helps. I really havent time to simplify it any further

    Charging For Islam?

    I'm still torn here. I understand knowledge and material should be distributed fisabilillah, and it seems in bad taste to put a price on it, but if such things were of monetary value, more people could be involved and make a simple decent (not extravagant) living, and not be unemployed or do questionable or un-Islamic occupations instead.

    Where Shia scholars held that visiting Karbala is better than visiting for an obligatory Hajj? Atleast one must refrain from lying before the public. In case Hajj has become obligatory going to Ziyarat of Holy shrine of Imam Hussain a.s is sin. Many mustahab deeds are virtuous than wajibaat but they can never take place of wajib. Saying asslamoalaikum is mustahab and carried 30 rewards but replying some one's asslamoalaikum is wajib but carries 10 rewards. One should show some honesty in posting things. My advice is to stop twisting words and facts and donot decieve public.

    Wa 'ala alihi wa sahbihi

    Since when does "Suhaba" encompass these five individuals? By your logic then "aal" also includes companions, so why do they need their own segment (wa suhbihi) but his holy progeny are just swept under companions? Since his family do have a higher status than companions it would make sense for them to have a part of the Salawat and not the companions.

    Wa 'ala alihi wa sahbihi

    I believe that sahbihi was a later addition. A desperate attempt to pass the Ahl Al-Bayt in status without succes. That's how these semantic problematics emerged. It's however a sunni trend to only mention the sahaba as much as possible. In khotba's and lectures. The term Ahl Al-Bayt is hardly mentioned lest it is about the Ummul Moninin.

    In this thread i will post a collections of Hadith from the book “Combat with The Self” (Jihad al-nafs) by Muhammad n. al-Hasan al-Hurr al-‘Amili. Ayatollah Bahjat adviced the youths ‘to read and practice one hadith daily from the Chapter of Jihad al-nafs in Wasail al-Shi’a of Shaykh Hurr al-Amili. Chapter 1: The Divine Obligation to Combat the Self Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] said that the Holy Prophet [saws] dispatched his soldiers to battle to fight the enemy and, upon their triumphant return, said; “Greetings on those who have successfully carried out the "Minor Combat" (jihad al-asghar), but have yet to engage themselves in the "Greater Combat".” He was asked: “O Prophet of Allah [sWT]! What is the "Greater Combat"? ” to which he replied: “Combat with the self ”. al-Kafi v.2, p. 12, no. 3., Similar Amali al-Saduq p. 377, no. 8; Ma’ni al-Akhbar, p.160, no.1 Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] said: "Take responsibility for your self, for if you do not, nobody else will." al-Kafi v.2, p. 12, no. 3. Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] said to a man : “Indeed you have been made the doctor of your self, the ailment has been made manifest to you, you know the marvel of health and have been shown the cure, and yet look at how you treat your soul!” al-Kafi v. 2, p. 329, no.6 Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] addressed a man, saying: “Consider your heart to be a kind friend and a dutiful son, and your knowledge a father whom you can follow, and your self (nafs) an enemy that you fight and your wealth a destitute woman whom you would repel.” al-Kafi v. 2, p. 329, no.7; al-Faqih, v.4, p.294, no.889 Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] said: “He who does not have a preaching heart, a reproaching self and a guiding friend will be easily overcome his enemy.” al-Faqih, v.4, p.287, no.862 Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] narrated on the authority of the Imams before him, that the Holy Prophet [saws], in his advice to Imam ‘Ali [a], said: “O ‘Ali, the best thing about self-struggle is when a person wakes up with no desire to wrong anyone.” al-Faqih, v.4, p.254, no.821 Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq [a] said : “He who has complete control over himself (nafs), when he desires something as well as when he fears something, when he is angry as well as when he is pleased, Allah [sWT] prohibits the Fire of Hell from touching his body.” al-Faqih, v.4, p.286, no.856, Thawab al-A’mal, p. 192, no. 1. Imam ‘Ali Amir al-Mu’minin [a] said: “The warrior is the one who combats his inner self.” Al-Majazat al-Nabawiyyah, p. 201, no. 157

    Need a friend

    Salam Sister, I couldn't agree with you more. Friends of quality are difficult to find, and it's even harder to find that one person that understands your psyche. My circle of friends get smaller and smaller as time goes by, and I find myself alone most of the time. This friend of yours - is there no way that the two of you can reconcile? I am sure an a sincere apology will suffice considering that 2 years have passed by. Try contacting her. Feel free to PM me as well if you want to talk further
