    SERlOUSLY . . . Sick of :

    I have a long list. I am sick of narcissists and their minions. It looks like all the people are part of cults which revolve around narcissists. There are only two types of people left: cult leaders and their followers. I am not a cult leader and my ego is too big to become a cult follower. So I don't fit anywhere. I am also sick of hypocrisy, everyone talking about charity, morality and all the moral values. If all the people are trying to become better, world should become a better place. So why is it becoming a worse place and with so much charity, why is zulm increasing, inequality increasing and why are people becoming more and more miserable? I am also sick of people talking against feminism and women. All the talk about marriage, marriage is great, so vital for society, and the responsibility of women to have more and more children. We don't have enough resources for the population that's already present on this planet. There are so many orphans and poor people in this world. In the first 30 years of my life, people were always talking about population control. But in the last 5 years, it seems like they literally want women to become baby making machines. I am also sick of people who are single, or don't have kids, and they keep telling me to get married or have kids. Hypocrisy at its peak. I am sick of people interfering in my life all the time. I don't interfere in other people's lives, so why do other people interfere in my life so much. I don't want to improve myself, I don't want to become your preferred version of human being or muslim, LEAVE ME ALONE. Married couples pretending to love each other when they are constantly having affairs. Marriage is a failed institution, married women live such pathetic lives, they become terrible mothers due to abuse by their husbands. Surviving in a marriage is like surviving in a jungle, still everyone talks about how great marriage is and how important it is for children to be brought up with both parents. I keep thinking about if women don't have to put up with all the emotional, physical, and psychological abuse, they would do a much better job at raising their children and those children will become better human beings.

    Not allowed to eat

    Salam First of all I am really embarrassed to ask this question and to even talk about it. Whenever my mom gets mad at me she doesn’t allow me to eat. I have OCD which means that I like everything to be clean and perfect and my mom hates that about me. Today I wanted to eat from a cleaner plate than the one she put on the table. So I went up to get a new one and then she told me that she is going to kill me if I ever at anything from the house again. This has happened before and I sometimes go days without eating. Last time I lost about 10 pounds because of it. I am 18 and I am moving out this summer to study at university (thank god for that) so I can hopefully eat whatever and whenever after I move out. But my question is, is it haram to punish your children like that?

    I am 21, Indian, revert, a proud bookworm, and introverted- a person who loves to type things from behind the screen rather than holding real-life conversations, because he's too chicken to do so. What do I look like- imagine if Daniel Radcliffe (in his Harry Potter avatar) puts on some (well, not exactly 'some') weight, sports a light beard, crops his hair, and acquires a tad darker complexion- we're the same height and of a similar build (mine is actually broader and sturdier than his). I have a husky voice. Interests and future ambitions- I study social science (history specifically), but also like literature,hope to become an academic, and I shall simultaneously float a worldwide organization call 'Nerds United International' for my other predicament-ridden brethren and sisters, of which I shall be General Secretary. Also, I LOVE to do charity !

    My post above was my response to a teenage girl's horrible situation. If she tries to make the situation better with her Mother, then her last few weeks or months at home will be less stressful. When a parent or guardian withholds food from a child, the next step is probably going to be physical punishment. Why should the OP make her homelife worse by doing or saying something that will cause her Mother to punish and harm her more? She should try to tolerate her Mother until she can get out of there.

    Omar ibn al Khattab and Abu Jahl

    Umar was known to be a violent man. Before becoming Muslim, he hit/beat his sister so much that she began bleeding, because she became Muslim and was reciting Qur'an with her husband. Umar also yelled, when the prophet died, "Anyone who says the prophet has passed away, will be beheaded by me! For verily he is alive, not dead." Umar was also documented to have hit his female servants many times.

    Shortest possible way to do salat?

    There are 11 things wajib in the prayers: 1. Niyyah: Intention to pray for being near to God. 2. Takbirat-ul-Ihram (Allahu Akbar after niyyah). 3. Qiyam: To stand. 4. Ruku’. 5. Two Sajdahs. 6. Qira'at: to recite Surah al-Hamd and another Surah in first two rak’ats and Tasbihat al-Arba’ah. (Subhanallahi wal-hamdu lillahi wa la ilaha illal-lahu wallahu Akbar) or Surah al-Hamd in the 3rd and 4th rak’ats. 7. Dhikr: to recite tasbih in ruku’ and sajdah, as will be explained later. 8. Tashahhud. 9. Salaam. 10. Tartib: To pray in the sequence prescribed by the shari’ah. 11.

    If it's done right, it leads to men and women who give and expect respect regardless of gender. Rather than worrying about labels, we should just treat everyone the way we would want to be treated.

    I feel like the Qadha salat I have are a debt to Allah and I believe that any kind of debt should be repaid in full as soon as possible, in the Islamic sense and in the financial sense. Is this a wrong mentality to have? I do not want to have them hanging over me for a long time. Not only does it give me stress, I never know when I may die. Under normal circumstances I would read my Qadha salat in the way I do regular salat (i.e. slowly and carefully) but the amount of Qadha is so much that it would be a great burden to me, and from my understanding, Allah wouldn't want me to think of salat as a burden, even though I am at fault for making these salat Qadha.

    One of the reasons I can think of is that not all adviser are sincere adviser. For example, there might be rumors that new partnership announcement will happen next week for coin X, I buy it two weeks before the announcement, then I advise everyone ells to buy it 1 week later and 1 day before the announcement I sell everything I have and then most likely the announcement comes out bad and even if it didnt I would have made money on the hype I created. Then I would also later on be blamed when everyone makes a loss, etc, etc.

    Brothers I think umar was neither as awful a person as 12er shias claim neither a saint or pseudo prophet as Sunnis claim He had his pros and cons, he was certainly 1000 times better than Othman Certainly a lot of merits are exaggerated by Sunnis as they had a vested interest similarly later 12ers shias have presented him as the devil incarnate as he is perceived as the primary reason why Ali didn't get the caliphate Truth is most likely somewhere in between but since the most partisan sources are backed by the scholars on either side we will most likely never know 100 % truth

    In response to Saudi aggression Yemen Houthis fired two ballistic missiles to Aramco facilities in Jizan April 24, 2018 - 10:08 AM News Code : 890653 Source : Press TVLink: Fighters from Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement have fired two ballistic missiles at a Saudi Aramco facility in the country's southwest. (AhlulBayt News Agency) - Fighters from Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement have fired two ballistic missiles at a Saudi Aramco facility in the country's southwest. Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network said on Monday that two Badr 1-type missiles had targeted the oil facilities that belong to energy giant Aramco in the Saudi border province of Jizan. There was no immediate report on possible casualties or damage. Saudi state media claimed that the country’s air defenses had intercepted and destroyed both projectiles over the skies above the region. The attack was carried out following bombardment of a wedding ceremony in Yemen’s Hajjah province by Saudi jets late on Sunday, which claimed the lives of over 30 civilians, including women and children. The Yemeni army also targeted several cities, including the capital Riyadh, with a barrage of ballistic missiles on April 11. http://en.abna24.com/news/middle-east/in-response-to-saudi-aggression-yemen-houthis-fired-two-ballistic-missiles-to-aramco-facilities-in-jizan_890653.html

    What power was he granted in the prophet's lifetime? Were you asking how he actually came to power or are you asking why Allan سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى would permit a ruler like him from a pre- destination point of view? I know Sunnis have a different view of free will vs. pre destination than us. When I talked to Sunnis in the past, it's like they can't believe we disassociate from Omar because they believe Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى wouldn't of allowed him or the other caliphs to rule if it wasn't meant to be.

    SERlOUSLY . . . Sick of :

    Art Programs. Especially on TV. They are so pretentious and do not contribute to my education. Now some elements of art are part of our knowledge base: trompe l'oeil, perspective, Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Durer, origins of Cubism (Annenkov, Picasso), and a few other things. But mostly, it is overwhelmingly garbage. Not counting its un-lsIamic nature. Remembering the place where l read this article, making it 25 years ago this year, the article dismissed art as having no real value; the author wrote that what made art "popular" is that no one really has to know a lot and really doesn't have to do anything to stand around and talk about it. Compare that to the minutia needed for managerial skill, not counting engineering and laboratory sciences. And discussions about 'art' are also either mawkish and maudlin or erotica based. Neither of which are good for anyone's imam. When was the last time we saw a program on cellular engineering?

    @Saraharvey W. Salam I have your same issues.i feel so exhausted and tired all the time that i don't even wanna get out of the bed.This is Anxiety. When ever you have negative thoughts just think about the worst thing that can happen... according to me, the worst thing that can happen to a living human being that can end everything is dying. So Everytime your mind thinks about turning every situation negative you think that maximum you will die.and that will be the end of everything. Everyone has to die so forcing your mind to think about death might control your negative thinking and give you peace. And another thing you can do is exercise. Do not sit with hands in hands. Always have something to do and if you don't go running you can start exercising at home.keep moving.Find new hobbies. I know this is extremely difficult because in the state you are you don't wanna do anything but you have to force yourself against your condition.Do not leave your mind/brain empty as they said an empty brain is a house for the devil. And remember your mind can only think...and not do anything.it doesn't has the power to do anything. You control your body. Your entire self.Seek help in Prayers/Salah. Read Quran Translation whenever you can and try to understand what you read, it will heal you Inshallah. You are not incurable.and i am sure with your husband by your side you are going to be an excellent wife Inshallah. You will take care of yourself,your husband and even your house. You have to prove your mind wrong and be strong. You have to believe in yourself. You deserve to be happy and live a normal life and you will inshallah. And if after trying everything you see that your situation is not changing you can always go back on medication. Taking some meds to feel fine is more then okay and you don't have to believe yourself to be sick. There are millions of people in this world going on with your same situation. So the best thing you can do is : Always have something to do. Keep yourself busy.

    About the last hadith (brother @Qa'im, please quote reference) : Is it true that : Khawarij says that a disbeliever is the one who does not recognize this Order (wilaya) ? (intentionally and unintentionally). So Imam a.s. do not agree with this statement.

    She is perfectly qualified to receive help from APS (Adult protective services), or whatever the equivalent is the UK as an adult. She may not qualify for child protective services but it is wrong to assume that she waited too long It is anonymous and has a hotline of people more qualified to help her than we can. Remember, she needs to contact authorities during the escape, not after the escape, if things go south. This isn't something she can wait out, her mother could definitely affect her ability to focus on her future As brother @forte said, she needs to control of the situation, most abusers are not rational people. Being nice is just telling them: "Ok, you can all walk over me. I'm submissive and afraid of you"

    Most places East of Iran(aside from Pakistan and Afghanistan) are pro Shia and are not known for being overly zealous, you rarely see burqas there. They simply would like to wear hijabs, one monster(Wahhabis) are not better than the other extreme(Atheist/Secularists). As Shia it is upon us to resist injustice and make peace with other.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. May Allah give you sabr. When our parents die, we often think that it's the end. This is not the case at all, as your dad is alive in a world that we can't see or perceive. We aren't who we're suppose to be in this world. We'll realize our true nature the moment we die. Your responsibility towards your dad has not stopped. Your dad is in need of your duas, prayers etc. And realize that Allah will reward you for that.

    The logic of Athiests

    If it is an assumption it is a much lesser one than assuming He exists. But mine was a response to the original assumption that complex things need a creator to which I replied that God is complex and therefore He too must need a creator. Even if one grants that God may be nonphysical. He is complex. Functional complexity is measured by the level of intelligence/consciousness and abilities. An omnipotent and omniscient being is thus ultimately functionally complex. Thinking, rationality, consciousness, and volition are complex processes that could not, by any means, arise by chance. You told me, you said: "A snowflake begins when a tiny dust or pollen particle comes into contact with water vapour high in Earth's atmosphere. The water vapour coats the tiny particle and freezes into a tiny crystal of ice. This tiny crystal will be the "seed" from which a snowflake will grow".

    The logic of Athiests

    I am Lebanese/Italian, so what? I cannot see the relevance of your post, Gods have declined and died also..think of Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek, Nordic gods, all dead. In your opening post you said: "Athiests believe that complexity doesn't require an intelligent creator." To which I replied that, for instance, snowflakes, ocean waves, spherical planets, elliptical orbits crystals, economy etc.. are complex, thy form spontaneosly, no intelligent designer is required. A snowflake exhibits order yet is formed without intelligent purpose through perfectly natural processes. Rocks lined up in an orderly row may be evidence of nothing other than the effect of a recurring tide. Of course it does not prove that God doesn't exists, it proves that complexity does exist without an intelligent creator. What do you think about the existence of parasitic tape worms living in rivers in Africa that enter eye-balls and and slowly eat them from the inside out; what kind of twisted intelligence would have designed and created a creature that tortures people until they are blind? You have not addressed the question as to how can something (the Designer of the Universe or Multiverse) that is infinitely more complex than the Universe itself not have an intelligent designer? That is the question theists cannot answer without violating the rules of logic. ws Your addition of extra entities is not parsimonious, It goes against Occam Razor. Existence is the only Necessity for which all other things, including a god, are contingent. ws.

    One thing to note about any Bahth Kharij is that you cannot come to a conclusions regarding a scholar's opinions until a certain topic is actually complete (and definitely not by looking or reading any one lesson from a middle of a series). The natural course of a Bahth Kharij is to open all plausible interpretations, present those arguments, and critique them where possible. I've encountered this way too many times during my readings of transcriptions of Bahth Kharij, where it appears that a scholar is arguing for a certain opinion, and even makes strong arguments for it, but 20-odd lessons later arrives at a conclusion which is the complete opposite. This is not to say that Sayyid Haydari isn't challenging the mainstream notion (about men being superior), but I don't think it is fair to say that his final conclusion is that women are superior to men. He has to clarify a lot of things which he hasn't - how he explains the verse which says men are a degree higher, how he addresses the issue of superiority vis-a-vis taqwa (which he begins discussing in lesson 13), if he does believe women are superior is this ontological or something else, etc.? What he claims to be "his understanding" is the grammatical point where he takes both of the last 2 statements in the verse as a parenthetical statement, rather than the words of Maryam's (s) mother. You can read the Arabic transcription of the lesson here: http://alhaydari.com/ar/2017/10/61362/ Given that this series is going to be happening for a long time (as he alludes to in the first few lessons), it is way too early to see what Sayyid al-Haydari's final opinions are on the subject. Another thing to keep in mind is that his lessons are very different because of the foundations he builds his arguments on - these are foundations which are not mainstream to begin with, such as his views on the whole Qur'an vs. Hadith discussion, and most importantly views he has in epistemology (a lot of views he has on the latter topic are views I agree with).

    Atheism in Middle ages

    In the Muslim world, overall pretty good especially compared to nowadays. There were philosophers that criticized Islam and religion as a whole openly. This caused the states usually to send their best scholars to debate this skeptic openly to alot of people allowing the exchange of ideas. Also these Atheists were allowed under certain circumstances to sell their books. Things weren't perfect but from what I've read as long as this person was respectful he was treated normally. In the medival Christain world they were treated like how Atheists are treated in the modern Muslim world, poorly. Very true only the highest of people in society were usually exposed to these debates but there were common folk no doubt.

    SC Addiction?

    On a more serious note, l found this on addiction: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2011/09/why-keeping-up-with-rss-is-poisonous-to-productivity-sanity/ Back in the early 70s, l read this article in Reader's Digest --which l cannot find on the Net, of course-- an article about how people were so 'desperate' to keep-up on everything in the 1930s and 40s that a company had invented, supposedly, a formula that would condense every news story into a single word. These were syndicated and published in newspapers, or a months list of what they were in magazines. People would actually look into a paper just to see what the word that day was. Such as something like "xibolatted". So, in such a tradition, the SC "word of the day" for Monday, 23April2018 is: "re-discombobulated formoxx".
