  2. Do die before you die means to kill your sense of ego before your actual death. To kill the self servant and so that your only a servant of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى and to act only fi sabilillah. It means to kill you pride, your care for status among people, to clean your heart of anything other than Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, to kill your love for dunya. To live only fi sabilillah. To rid yourself of any other identity than muslim, to understand that you were muslim before you became a member of your nation, before you became a male, before you became a human and that

  4. The teachings of Islam: Believe in God and the Prophet and obey them. Believe in divine justice and judgment after death and model your life so that you can survive the judgment satisfactorily. Honour, respect, help and obey your parents, even if they do not fulfil their obligations to you. But do not obey them if they ask you to commit a wrong. Help those in need financially and otherwise but without a motive and as far as possible, on the quiet. Do not let your generosity be commonly known. Have special consideration for disadvantaged groups, such as orphans, w

  5. If a man and woman are compatible, and each is willing to deal with all the "issues" of the other (existing children, relative immaturity, whatever) they should marry, no problem. No man who feels unprepared to take on the responsibility of a widow (who might be wiser than him) and her children (which will bring their own unique set of problems) should marry a widow with children, and no widow with children should marry a previously unmarried man if she has any doubts about his ability to become a beneficial part of her existing family.

  6. I think the point that the brother was trying to make about necrophelia / incest etc. is that. According to gay advocates, if relationship is consensual and there is no immediate, observable harm to either of the two persons involved, then any kind of sex is ok between those people. I didn't include pedophelia in this because most secular people also say that it must be between two adults, because children are not able to consent. The problem with this premise (no immediate, observable harm) is that they count only physical and emotional harm done to the individual. Because they believe

  7. The true teaching of Christianity is pretty scarred up too. At this point the public has gone from mild criticism to mild activism against all things Christian. Somewhere down in the US a baker refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. He said it went against his Christian beliefs. Last I saw they were starting some legal action against the baker. Every year now atheists bring up scores of old pagan traditions and tie them to modern Christian tradition, relevant or not. Atheists do posters for buses now. "Christian morals" has been socially degraded to laughable. The social world is abo

  8. Salaam Aleikum, There is an discussion between the people of paradise asking of what they did on Earth to archive the position in paradise and thus saved from the fire. They mention two qualities that it is mentioned so many times in Qur'an; They will exchange with one another a cup [of wine] wherein [results] no ill speech or commission of sin. There will circulate among them [servant] boys [especially] for them, as if they were pearls well-protected. And they will approach one another, inquiring of each other. They will say, "Indeed, we were previously among our people fearfu

  9. Salam brother, what you said is the view of some of our maraji' but there are other maraji' that have a different view regarding Wudu. Here is a fatwa by Imam Khamenei that allows Wudu for any salah without the niyah of Qurbatan ilallah. Q: May one perform the ẓuhr prayer by means of the same wuḍū’ which had been made for (purposes of) the preceding fajr prayer?A: Whenever a wuḍū’ has been made correctly – be it for prayer purposes, reading the Qur’an or just to attain a state of ritual purity – one may continue to perform any ritual or action which conditionally requires a wuḍū’ as

    SAQIFA!

    You and I know, the events of Saqifah is well documented. So, if you want to start cherry picking the historical accounts of Saqifah then go ahead. And as for whether it is a "Sin" to reject history of Abu Bakrs Caliphate, then you are also raising doubts on all "Rightly guided Caliphs" Once you start questioning the veracity of history from "Sunni perspective" then i would confidently say you don't belong to Sunni School of thought. It is Sunni consensus that all companions were on Haq. Then for you to come along and raise doubts about the historical account of the companions is a

  19. And you will find a discussion in chapter 74 where Ashaab Al-Yameen asking about the guilty ones: What has brought you into hell? They shall say: We were not of those who prayed; And we used not to feed the poor; And we used to enter into vain discourse with those who entered into vain discourses; And we used to call the day of judgement a lie; Till death overtook us (74:42-47) One can understand what the people of paradise would have done in their lives!

  20. Wow, may Allah protect that baker. I've also heard the religion of Buddha have been corrupted and changed to please man's desires. Religion in a few more years may be something people will look down at you upon. 60 years ago or so homosexuality in many places was thought to be a disease, and now if you speak up against a homosexual you've committed a grave crime and can be punished. May Allah protect and preserve the teachings of His noble prophets and messengers.

    The Aqsa Mosque

    There is a debate amongst us Shi'a whether Bayt Al-Maqdis (the one in Jerusalem) is the Al-Aqsa that is mentioned, or is it a Mosque in the Heavens, and even if it is the same Al-Aqsa... for us Shi'a, Bayt Al-Maqdis, or what is usually called Al-Aqsa Mosque, is not as holy for us as it is for the Sunnis, who class it as number 3 after the two holy Mosques, even though it is still holy. In fact, even Masjid Al-Kufa might be holier than it. The reason for Muslim anger against Trump's decision is because Muslims believe that entire land is usurped, and that Jerusalem should be the capi

  23. From Wikipedia, not sure if all of this is correct, but I can't find anything glaringly wrong with it The covered mosque building was originally a small prayer house erected by Umar, the second caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate, but was rebuilt and expanded by the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik and finished by his son al-Walid in 705 CE. The mosque was completely destroyed by an earthquake in 746 and rebuilt by the Abbasid caliph al-Mansur in 754. His successor al-Mahdi rebuilt it again in 780. Another earthquake destroyed most of al-Aqsa in 1033, but two years later the Fatimid caliph Ali az

  24. The closest that it would be in Arabic would be AL-Hayyu. YHWH is actually Aramaic and not Hebrew; the Aramaic was used in the Hebrew Text to prevent confusion as the Hebrew YHYH is used throughout the Hebrew Text. HYH is not an Aramaic verb and is not used in the Aramaic Text; what one will find is that YHWH never appeared in the Aramaic Texts of the Bible in reference to the Deity- this is simply because the Aramaic HWH is used exactly the way the Hebrew HYH is used. To prevent the Aramaic YHWH from being confused for Deity in the Aramaic Texts of the Bible, the scribes changed the norm

To quote a couple hadiths on the subject of Allah's names, our belief is that His names are created, and therefore not inherent to His divine essence: علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن هشام بن الحكم أنه سأل أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن أسماء الله واشتقاقها: الله مما هو مشتق؟ قال: فقال لي: يا هشام الله مشتق من إله والاله يقتضي مألوها والاسم غير المسمى، فمن عبد الاسم دون المعنى فقد كفر ولم يعبد شيئا، ومن عبد الاسم والمعنى فقد كفر وعبد اثنين، ومن عبد المعنى دون الاسم فذاك التوحيد أفهمت يا هشام؟ قال: فقلت: زدني قال: إن لله تسعة وتسعين اسما فلو كان الاسم هو المسمى لكان كل اسم منه

  31. So basically here you are saying that homosexuality is OK because this is not bad for health contrary to incestuous relations? This is just false actually it is a proven fact that you could have a lot of healthy problems with homosexual relations while would not be worst than incestuous relations. You are saying that just because you had been brainwashed but western propaganda who try to normalize homosexual relations. I sincerely invite you to think more about your choice to leave Islam and to repent to before it will be too late.

  33. If you study the history of Arabia, you will realize that the specialty of Arabs was at memorizing poetry. This is something which may seem hard, but they were amazing at it. Many had memorized it by heart that anyone who even tried to change it, could easily be caught. If Quran was initially written and not memorized - then there is a greater chance that it could be fabricated and altered. But anyways you can make a separate thread for all the verses you dislike - if you want to. I won't dwell into that here.

    The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sawas) said: "I shall be succeeded by twelve religious leaders, all of whom will be of Quraysh´ite origin." (al-Bukhari as-Sahih) "The twelve Imams are these sacred personages and spiritual leaders about whom the Holy Prophet had prophesied. Pointing them out as the source and means of guidance for mankind, the Holy Prophet remarked: "so long as my twelve successors will continue to govern, this religion (islam) will exist (in this world). (Abu Dawud, as-Sunan) Before even looking at ahadith, it is always best to refer to the Holy Quran. Fee-amanillah

  42. Reference Question Response Ayatullah Makarem Shirazi Is there a problem with saying the phrase (and exaggeration) after Salavat, which is said after the prostration or after the mention of bowing down during prayer? And if this is a problem, is it imperative for us to prostrate Sahwat? It does not matter, but sometimes it leaves, so that it can not be considered part of prayer.
