  1. As a mother, she will have a big impact on the children. If she doesnt wear hijab then her daughters are unlikely to aswell. For me thats not acceptable

  3. John 7:34 ( this is also proof Jesus did not die on the cross) 34 You will seek me and you will not find me. Where I am you cannot come. John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will. John 5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. John 8:28 28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up[a] the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. 29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.” 30 Even as he spoke, many believed in him.

  4. By veil I guess you mean the hijab. For me it's the same as rejecting a potential spouse if she/he doesn't pray namaz,or fast or doesn't give zakat or khums. [EDIT] and I wouldn't call it a bias. It's a perfectly valid reason.

  5. I think it’s sad, since you never know what another person is going through. Many nonhijabis have considered wearing the hijab, and no one’s personal opinion should override the person’s journey to become closer to Allah. Many brothers reject girls based on her not wearing hijab, not considering her character qualities or general compatibility. Islam is not a religion of appearances. Islam is a religion on how to perfect one’s character.

  6. Sure, we don't know the backstory. For all we know, the tantrum throwing man-child didn't even earn the money for the shopping that his wife carried. Maybe the wife is an absolute terror and the husband is usually pretty level headed and kind and just lost his temper this once. We can't judge the people. But we most certainly can and should judge the action. To those guys trying to justify it, I can't help but assume that you find his tantrum perfectly acceptable.

  7. What extent will you guys go to prove husband was not at fault. Lol Wife doing israaf, be a 'man' put your foot down right there and tell her she is going over budget, instead of throwing a tantrum outside later which is neither going to bring back the lost money nor is such resolution of issues good for marriage in the long term. The point me and other sisters are trying to drive home is,its not okay to leave your wife with a little child and heavy things to carry in a public place. No matter how big the disagreement is,even if you have decided to divorce her over it, show some self control at the moment, take them home with you and address the issues in the privacy of your home.

  9. Assalamu alaykum, Dear brother, Ameerul Mu'mineen [asws] had once said, "The best reply to a fool is silence", and on another occasion he said (on the authority of Sayyid Ammar Nakshawani) that "None have been able to refute me but the ignorant." Mark Twain also once remarked that "Never argue with a fool; he will first drag you down to his level, and then beat you with experience!" And, as George Bernard Shaw would say, arguing with a fool is like wrestling with a pig- you both get dirty in the end, and the pig likes it. No amount of argument will help you bring them round to your views. The best strategy is to leave such people alone, and ignore their jahalat.

  16. I think to your list you must add also: 1. Backbites 2. Doesn't connect 3. Lazy 4. Doesn't have good core values 5. Isn't a genuinely good human being If someone does all the Wajibaat, goes Ziyarah, and then you find them gossiping about other women like its a fun-fair over Biryani with their 'sisters' , if you can't connect with them, if they don't make an effort, if they don't seem self-less, those are just as bad in my eyes and the religious part is dust. However you make a valid point, i don't disagree with you. I just think anyone who goes into a marriage on outward piety is taking a massive risk. The idea isn't to be happy though is it, this world is only temporary i guess, so one must sacrifice.

  20. Yes there is. There are many, Here's one. إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدْنِي وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِذِكْرِي "Verily, I - I alone - am God; there is no God but Me. Hence, worship Me alone, and be constant in prayer, so as to remember Me! Quran 20:14 As for your other points about Jesus(peace be upon him). I am willing to discuss these if you promise to stick to only this point (Did Jesus say he was God in the Bible) and not try to as they say in Arabic 'take a stick from every valley'. Otherwise I will let others continue with this.

  21. The definition of "religious" is not what most people think of it to be. I know of some religious people who have the most "narrowest of views" and their arrogance is just on another level. If you want to find a good man - make sure he is not judgmental of others, doesn't backbite, doesn't misuse his tongue by swearing, doesn't crack racist jokes, doesn't expect you to be his servant and can control his anger. In addition to all this, find a man who has a desire to seek Islamic knowledge - in this way you can both help each other.

  25. Letter 23: Instructions to his family a little before his martyrdom. Made shortly before his martyrdom when he had been fatally wounded by a blow from the sword of (`Abd ar-Rahman) Ibn Muljam (the curse of Allah be upon him). I enjoin upon you as my dying wish not to regard anything by way of partner with Allah, not to disregard the sunnah of Muhammad (may Allah bless him and his descendants), establish these two pillars and light these two lamps. You will then be free from evil. Yesterday I was your companion and today I am (just) a lesson for you, while tomorrow I shall be leaving you. If I survive I shall be the master of my blood (to avenge or not to avenge it), and if I die then death is a promised event. If I forgive, it is for me a means of nearness (to Allah) and for you a good act. Therefore, do forgive. https://www.al-islam.org/nahjul-balagha-part-2-letters-and-sayings/letter-23-instructions-his-family-little-his-martyrdom علی(علیه السلام) تصریح می‌فرمایند که: العفو تاجُ المکارم (میزان الحکمه ج 2 ص 367) "Forgiveness and passing is a coronation that rests on all good and good morals." Mizan Al hikma v2 p367 Hadith n. 410 410. Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said: Fear of Allah is the chief trait of human character.

    Sunni Habashi sect

    If you accept the throne is physical, then you accept the throne is constrained by space. If it is constrained by space, it is contained to A space. If that is the case then God must be physical entity in order to sit on a physical throne. Unless you state God is a metaphysical being sitting on a physical throne; which makes no sense to me.

  35. Wikipedia notes: as well as: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahweh So, is YHWH the same as Allah? As a Christian, I certainly consider him my God, the only true God of all things, and the only one deserving of worship. I would consider Allah the Islamic "spin off" (I don't mean that in a rude or offensive way) of YHWH. Thoughts or other opinions/viewpoints?

  36. I think everyone here is getting a bit too emotional. There is no need to slaughter the guy from every direction possible. I do admit that he did something very immature, but it doesn't mean that he's a guy who abuses his wife all the time at home. For goodness sake, he just lost it for a second and probably decided to walk away and not create a scene. They probably forgot about it now.

  39. Evangelism is an interesting concept and agree with the OP. On the one hand you find an entitled superiority and aggression. On the other you do find a safe haven for the abandoned of which I’ve met many. Two with Muslim parents and one a Catholic. Perhaps there’s a lesson to be learned that the Muslim communities be more warm and welcoming. Both reverts and those who come from Muslim families feel ridiculed alienated and alone. I think it’s why our youth deviate. They attach actions to a religion that was never taught properly in the first place. Rather messages conveyed for if they were truly pondered our families, communities, et al may be different... I digress. I’ve found putting things into context to be an important/interesting factor when reading religious text. If you think about it there has been a power dynamic prevelant from Abrahamic religions. The revelation of Islam and the context of its history (social climate before Muhammad peace be upon him and his family, during his life and after) can be seen today. It always was- the players are just a bit different. Parallels of this are evident around the world. Maronites in Lebanon for example. Even evangelists in Saudi. The refurbishing of religion into a political, superior entity. Of which it’s members are also offered a very aristocratic safe haven (with worldly benefits), political, social, economic and communal actions are better marketed... and are responsible for the ways of this world. Cleanly, successfully and without a hitch. A subtle form of emperialism and I don’t even like to throw around soap box words. In the end a lot who convert are kind. And yes need a home, family and sense of belonging. Let the greater purpose of their presence eat cake for all I care. But yes the ones who are seeking have always been really sweet people. Genuine interest and communication goes a long way. Our community members, young and old need to realize that. It’s okay to be receptive and simply engage. Tangents and rants. nice post.

  40. SubhanAllah, we are all a superstitious lot. From Hazrat Abbas throwing dozens of men into the air, to Jafar the notorious Jinn. When will we wake up and question things and stop believing everything we hear? When will we ask for evidence in the same way we would ask for evidence if an Indian call-scammer tries to obtain our bank details for a so-called loan we have overdue? We do it for our day to day lives, but someone the criteria for evidence goes out of the window when it comes to religion. Half of the so-called quotes about Imam al-Hussain [as] from notable figures are actually fake with no sources, but plastered on the underground.

  42. Wa aleykumsalaam, From `Abd Allāh bin Sinān said, I asked Abā `Abd Allāh, Ja`far bin Muhammad al-Sādiq (عليه السلام), I (narrator) said: “Are the angels better (afDal) or the children of Adam? So he (عليه السلام) said that Amīr al-Mu’minīn, `Alī bin Abī al-Tālib (عليه السلام) said: “Verily, Allāh (عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ) has composed in angels `aql (intellect) and no desire, and he composed in beasts desire and no intellect, and he composed in the children of Adam both (`aql and desire). So whoever (lets) `aql overcome his desires, he will be than the angels, and whoever (lets) his desires overcome his `aql, he is will be worse than the beasts” Source:Ilal al-Sharai by Sheikh Sadooq,Vol 1,Ch 6,Pg 4,H 1
