    Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum Sister @Pearl178 while the message is beautiful and children are innocent, those damn 3rab leaders are hypocrites and liars. I can't stand their deception to the public. Several dozen died and hundreds of Palestinians have been maimed and the gulf arabs are sending a message of peace? Their silence and policy says otherwise. May Allah destroy House of Sa3ood. God bless you and I wish you and your family Shahr Ramadhan mubarak. I know you meant well, my message is to the hypocrite arabs, M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

    Multiple Wives in the US

    But polygamy is almost never wajib. Obviously if the law requires disobeying Islam, we can't follow it, but where the law doesn't require violation of Islam, it should be obeyed. We pay interest on mortgages and student loans "with intention of not paying interest, even knowing that we will have to." I don't think Muslims in "the West" have the moral high ground to violate marriage laws for something Islam permits but neither requires nor even encourages. I think my argument about following the letter of the law by not registering marriages is a more valid justification for polygamy in countries where it is prohibited than the argument of moral high ground.

    Assalamallikum, Ramadhan Mubarak for all of you who believe. lnshallah you fasting time will be bearable. Night of 15/16 May is the calendar calculated New Moon with 0% "illumination". Night of 16/17 May is the Waxing Crescent with 1% illumination. Maybe someone can answer this: lf we go by sighting the New Moon with 0%, how can we see it? Especially if it is cloudy.

    Cursing sunni personalities

    Excerpt from Ziarat Ashura: O’ Allah! Curse the first tyrant who oppressed the right of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and the next person who followed him on this path. O’ Allah! Curse the group who fought against Husayn and those who followed them and supported them and assisted them in killing him. O’ Allah, curse all of them! Do we say more? Just remember the English word curse is not the real translation of Laanat.

    Same as the East, at least in the West, Shia Islam isn't illegal and is protected, unlike in Egypt or Malaysia. If it bothers you, then why you are in Sweden? Ponder on that for once. Imam Ali (AS) I am not hopeless, just treat the police with respect. I would respect the law enforcement in Iraq, just as I would anywhere else. ^

Saudi sold you, Sunni world forgot you, and UN doesn't really care for you... And most importantly you (Palestinians) are busy taking money and weapons from the same ppl who sold you and the same ppl who oppressed you and declaring wars in Muslim countries like Syria and are involved in terrorist activities against Muslims in Lebanon and elsewhere! Now Hamas leaders, a bunch of ignorant-sectarian should go to Bahrain and take pictures with the king and fly FSA flags in Egypt or train terrorists inside Syria to kick out Bashar Assad

    Iraq Election Results

    Salam bro! hope you are doing fine.. We shouldn't play in the hands of enemies (Saudis..gulf little monnafiqeen) and western trouble makers.. Congratulation to Sadr and his supporters for winning some extra seats than other parties... Remember Bush backed by Europe and Saudi/Gulf states invaded Iraq removed Saddam? What was next? Next, very secular Shias like Alawi and ex-Baathists who cared less for Saddam should have came to power and oppress Shias and act anti-Iran (that plan failed) Then, second step was to unite all Baathists, Sunni Ikhwans, and a few secular Shias to take power ( that plan failed too and Tariq Hashemi ran away) this time Turkey was involved too. Then, finally they play extreme sectarian cards and tried to bring groups like ISIS to power but mainly control them by ex-Baathists, so once Shia government in Baghdad falls, and borders are secured, then they remove ISIS elements and install a puppet Sunni (possibly an ex-Baathist) as a new dictator for years to come... just like Sisi in Egypt who will run forever and control everything. (ONCE AGAIN THAT PLAN FAILED TOO) Now, Saudis been trying the last card for the past few years, to buy Shia parties, personalities, once invite Hakim to king's palace, once Sadr, offer aids and support, speak of Arabism and unity and other BS stories (because they know that they already lost many times, so they want to at least try to keep Iran out or at least limit Iran's influence) But the answer is clear, they will fail again.. .. by 'they' I mean Saudis and western states, don't ignore the fact that Saudis/UAE will not act and will not play this last card without the permission of their masters in the west. I hope Sadr and all other groups whom Saudis are interested in will make billions of dollars out of these little monafiqeen and then kick their [edit]... And hopefully the new PM will ask all western forces to leave Iraq for good and limit them to diplomats in their embassies.

    Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine

    What is happening in Palestine today is because of what Palestinians did decades ago. Decades ago Palestinian leadership, lured by Saudi petrodollars, chose Arabism/Sunnism over Islam..By doing this not only they (Arafat & Co) set Palestine on the path to failure, but also empowered the Salafi sectarianism & divisions of today. Hezbollah was not swayed by such racism and look at where it is today...Iran was the only country that gave Israeli embassy to Palestine...talk about symbolism....look at how sincere were the Iranians, and how sectarian was Arafat who chose Saddam and Saudis and severed ties with Tehran...and today's generation in Palestine is paying for this fool's foolishness. Imagine how ME and the Islamic world would have been if Palestine were the true uniting factor among Muslims. Nature indeed has an uncanny way of punishing the foolish. .

    Well, I can tell you I don't think there is a whole lot of support for what Hamas stands for, etc. But the more Israel carries on in this fashion, and we don't live in the 1960's, social media is increasingly more and more relevant, and among young people, I think you can't really prevent information getting out, the more the tide will swing against it. And Israel is going to extremes to try to shut negative opinions about it, people are noticing not only has Israel shot dead 50 people and wounded over 2000, while no one on the other side has felt even a scratch, but even talking about this issue and finding ways to do something about it is becoming harder even in their own countries. In the U.K. for example, there was an excellent documentary about Israeli embassy working with Israeli lobby groups and certain conservative Jewish organisations to attempt to take down MPs who were too critical of Israel. Furthermore, there were fake allegations of anti-semitism made in the Labour Party by pro-Israel Labour Party members which were baseless and I think this had much to do with the targeting of Jeremy Corbyn, because reports showed anti-semitism in the party had declined under him, and it was more prevalent on the right among conservatives. In the US, laws have been passed in states like Texas where people couldn't receive hurricane relief from hurricane Harvey if they boycotted Israel, a public school teacher in I believe Kansas lost her job over this, luckily thanks to the ACLU, these were overturned. But recently a speaker was invited to a public university in Houston to talk about something, I can't remember what, but she had to sign a form that stated you must promise not to boycott Israel for you to receive money for the speech. All these moves seem to contradict the view that most people have been told particularly by American politicians that Israel is a democracy in a part of the world where there is none, well the way it's carrying on not just domestically but also in trying to stifle debate about this issue in the West, is going to pull people away, and such a system can't sustain itself. People are increasingly going to be asking themselves, why can't I boycott this country? Why can't politicians address this issue without being smeared? What kind of democracy am I being told this is? I dont know which supporters of Palestine that repeat talking points, I've noticed many leftist groups I can't stand not because of their opinions on this issue in general but because they seem to think any one that opposes the US is an angel, so that could be Stalin, Mao, Assad, etc. I don't care for such people, but I'll tell you the more Israel carries on, the more people will be drawn to what those who support people like Stalin and Mao say.

    It depends on the nature of the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. In Western societies, relationships typically imply “haram” such as fornication. Wheras “boyfriend” may also imply, especially to Eastern cultures, “I am trying to get to know you for the purpose of marriage and set boundaries/abstain from Zina.” Before I got married to my now-husband, I always referred to him as my boyfriend off SC, because I wanted people to know that I was no longer single. My husband mostly referred to me as his “fiancé” although he didn’t propose to me until he got here and I only stated calling him my fiancé until we officially got engaged. Of course, although we were boyfriend and girlfriend, we abstained from Zina, Alhamdulilah. At the end of the day, it’s not that boyfriend/girlfriend relationships are haram, it’s WHAT you do with them that makes the concept haram. Maybe the proper term for our relationship was “courting” but the term is outdated.

    Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum Beirut is getting ready for this beautiful month. How can I explain the atmosphere that is occuring right before my eyes? People are out packing the streets and into the grocery stores. Streets and buildings are decorated with lights and signs celebrating the month of Mercy. Supermarkets are having sales and trying to get customers in their doors. Children are asking questions about this holy month. Patisseries, bakeries, sweet stores are preparing for the custom made desserts they have ready for 30 days of Ramadhan, when it is not available during the rest of the year. The seamtresses are busy tailoring clothes. There are even vans who left phone numbers for people to call them for 10,000 LL to travel during the day and get them back to Beirut for those who are not able to fast due to exams, labor jobs, or long hours of the day. My heart is filled with joy because Insh'Allah I live to see another month of Ramadhan. From my family to yours, wishing you all a fulfillig month of worship, peace, and joy. Forgive me please if I have wronged anyone, or said anything hurtful. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

    Cursing sunni personalities

    An honest question. Practically speaking, what does the millionth conversation about cursing accomplish? Is it doing anything for your soul, your community, or anything remotely positive for anyone? Why are the objects of ire being placed on such a pedestal of importance, that they consume so much of our mental energy? The general principle is understood, that one disassociates from those against the Prophet and his household (a). In many cases today, this principle has deformed into "my team" sectarian hooliganism and an outlet for releasing other angers and frustrations in life. I am skeptical, but I find much of the "cursing" an excuse and and justification for those who simply need something to shout and scream at, no matter what it is. They are just angry at the world. Where is this on the priority list, exactly? You may say, things aren't mutually exclusive and there's no need to stratify. Talks about cursing can be balanced with other positive talk, all in their proper place. Well, the search function proves that wrong.

    Salaam. Quran is quite explicit in this: [Shakir 4:3] And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course.

    Girlfriend/boyfriend Not Allowed!.

    Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum Sister @Hijabonista Welcome to SC. I'm glad you joined this community. How are you sister? Congratulations on the month of Ramadhan. I hope you are well and in good health. Islam protects girls from improper relationships. Even looking at the opposite sex with the intention of lust is zina of the eyes. If you want to get to know a man for intention of marriage, this is not a problem in Islam. Please invite the brother to your home and let him talk to your father first. This way he knows you are serious and there is no monkey business. I encourage you to not exchange messages of i love you, miss you, without officially doing kitab ktab. The best type of worship now in the month of Ramadhan is to avoid sin. I hope you consider what I said, and to confirm what I said or if you have any doubt, please contact your local sheikh or alim resident and ask him what you are permitted and not permitted to do with the opposite sex. God bless you sister and thank you for asking an important question. I'm sure many will benefit from your question. @Be Human First Prevention is better than cure. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

    Salam Haji 2003, My only advice to the church leaders in Jerusalem is to heed Jesus Christ's commands to love neighbors as oneself and to love enemies. When asked who is one's neighbor, Jesus gave the Good Samaritan parable. Remember, he was talking to his fellow Jewish people about who their neighbors are, and at that time, Samaria was a neighboring nation to the Jewish people in Judea/Israel. The Jewish people did not associate with the Samaritans at that time, yet in Jesus' parable, the Samaritan took care of a beaten man when even a priest and a Levite would not help him: "30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him." - Luke 10:30-33 (NIV) Christians are supposed to obey Jesus Christ, even when it is difficult. Jesus Christ gave the Ultimate Example of loving both his neighbors as oneself and loving enemies. It is very hard to love enemies. However, Christians can indeed obey Jesus Christ's commands with God's help, no matter their nation or circumstances. After all, Corrie ten Boom who was put into a Nazi concentration camp for rescuing Jewish people loved her enemies with God's help, as well as many other Christians since the martyrdom of Stephen, who have loved their enemies even while dying for Jesus Christ. I have to go now. Peace and God bless you

    Is it true that the husband of a polygomous marriage would have to provide individual housing for each wife? If that is the case, then yes, the husband would probably have to be part of some Haram occupation, if not living off of welfare or in a ghetto. Unless they are doctors or something high paying.

    In principle, it can be stated that the marri- ages were contracted with one or more of the following objectives:- (1) For the sake of caring for the orphans and looking after the poor widows. These were some Muslim women who had earlier enjoyed high dignity in the Arab society. But on the death of their husbands, their status and even faith were in jeopardy, because their tribal chiefs would take them back and compel them to renounce Islam, thus converting them back to polytheism. For example, Sawdah had migrated to Abys- sinia where her husband died, and she became absolutely without helper. It was the time when the Prophet had lost Khadijah, his first wife; so he married Sawdah. Likewise, Zaynab daughter of Khuzaymah, was an old-aged widow, who after the death of her husband was inflicted with poverty, despite her being amiable and being known as 'Ummul-Masa- kin' ( Mother of the poor). The Prophet married her to uphold her dignity and she died of old age only after two years of that marriage. (2) For the sake of enacting a new law and eradicating injustice by the ignorant tribes. For example, Zaynab bint-Jahsh was the daughter of the Prophet's aunt. She was married, at the reco- mmendation of the Prophet, to Zayd ibn-Harithah, the freed slave and adopted son of the Prophet. This marriage was contracted to eradicate the dis- crimination against slaves and poor and to empha- size the Islamic equality and brotherhood, as Zay- nab was from the family of `Abd al-Muttalib, the grandfather of the Holy Prophet and the Chief of Quraysh, whereas Zayd was a slave who was freed by the Prophet. Unfortunately, Zaynab due to her family pride, did not get along well with Zayd despite Prophet's persuations. The rift between the two culminated into divorce. Meanwhile, the system of adoption of children was expressly forbidden by Allah. So, when Zayd divorced Zaynab, the Pro- phet of Islam, at the express command of God, married Zaynab; and, thus, put an end to the then prevalent belief that adopted sons were like real sons and that wives or widows of adopted sons were like daughters-in-laws. (3) For the sake of freeing prisoners and slaves. For example, 'Juwayriyah' was from a pro- minent tribe of Banul-Mustalaq. In a war against Islam this tribe was defeated; and Juwayriyah, the daughter of their Chief, was held in captivity. The Prophet married her to set an example of protection and good treatment to prisoners of war. On seeing that the prisoners had become relatives of the Holy Prophet by marriage, the Muslims released all the prisoners of war held by them. According to Ibne Hisham, over one hundred families of Banul-Mustalaq were freed from cap- tivity as a result of this marriage. (4) For the sake of uniting some prominent Arab tribes who often were at logger heads with each other and to safeguard the internal political status of Islam. The Prophet married `Aishah daughter of Abu Bakr from the tribe of Bani Tim, Hafsah daughter of `Umar ibn AI-Khattab from the tribe of Adi, Umm-Habibah daughter of Abu Sufyan from the tribe of Umayyah, Safiyah daughter of Huaiy bin Akhtab of the Jewish tribe of Bani an-Nadir, and Maymunah from the tribe of Bani Makhzum. Umm-Habibah (i.e. Ramla) was daughter of Abu Sufyan of Bani Umayyah who was the bitte- rest enemy of the Prophet and had repeatedly fought against him. She, as a Muslim, was in great distress since she was divorced from her original husband (who had become a Christian in Abyssi- nia) and her father was a great enemy of Islam. Seeing her deprived of every help from parent and divorced from husband, the Prophet married her in sympathy. This marriage also gave a chance to the people of Bani Umayyah to soften their hearts for Islam. Safiyah was widowed daughter of Huaiy bin Akhtab, one of the chiefs of Jewish tribe of Bani an-Nadir. When the prisoners of this tribe were released by the Muslims, the Prophet married her in order to safeguard her status; and, thus, also linking himself with one of the great Jewish tri- bes of that time, and paving the way for , them to come nearer to Islam. http://www.shiavault.com/books/the-philosophy-of-marriages-of-prophet-muhammad-s-a-w/chapters/4-list-of-wives-of-the-prophet-of-islam

    I think it is honorable, you're not doing anything wrong, you will be protecting and serving citizens. A question to those against the police, if you were being attacked or burgled would you not call the police because its a 'dajjal system' or they are 'zionist slaves?'. Please... you would be begging them for help. I would wholeheartedly do it if that is what you'd like to do as long as you get the chance to pray and do your obligations you would be in an honorable role. Hats of to you and all honorable police officers.

    It is in the Quran, and it is agreed on by all muslims, in principle, but there are many details connected with it that are not agreed upon. The History Jizya began during the time of Prophet Muhammad(p.b.u.h). Most muslims know of the famous incident of Mubahila(it's in the Quran). The Christians of Najran(who lived near Medina) had a series of theological debates with the Prophet Muhammad(p.b.u.h) which are recorded in many hadith. After these debates, they still didn't accept the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad(p.b.u.h) nor did they accept the concept of Divine Unity in the way the Quran teaches it. So they agreed to a Mubahila. The Mubahila is a contest where each side agree to pray to God to destroy the liars (the one of the two groups that are lying with regards to God). So they went to do this, but the Christian group backed out of the Mubahila after they had already agreed to it, but they agreed to pay the Jizya. The Purpose The purpose of the Jizya only comes into effect in an Islamic Government. As an Islamic Government (a true Islamic Government) is based on the principle of No god but God and Muhammad is the Messenger of God. Since Christians don't accept this founding principle on which the government is based, they are not allowed to fight in the cause of Jihad(fight in a military conflict on the side of the Islamic Government). In exchange for their exemption from military service, they are required to pay a tax. This tax is equal in value to the time they would have spent in the military. So the idea of a Jizya in a country like Egypt is a ridiculous idea, since Egypt is not an Islamic Government(it is a secular military dictatorship) and the Christians who live there already serve in the Armed forces, so to to make them both serve in the military and also pay the Jizya is unfair, and like many have already said, we believe the Muslim Brotherhood is not a group that is just or is Islamic in how they conduct themselves. Islam is based on upholding justice and fairness in society.

    Salaam Aleikum, I understand your point and I totally agree with it. Actually this is the way of Prophets to warn people who are sinful and try to bring them to the light. But my point is that hating the evilness is fine as long you love justice and obedience. By this of course such a person tries to change them for goodness and unity, even having such a intention is enough.

However, recently someone cutt off all the pipe connections outside (maybe to steal it and make money), so we literally have no water and gas. The connections were all perfect a while back. Gosh some people can be so annoying, causing unncessesary hassle

    Iraq Election Results

    Interesting development. What's the problem with Iraqis not wanting to be under the thumb of Iran? Iraq is not part of Iran...

    Cursing sunni personalities

    The reason why we should curse the enemies of ahlul bayt (as) is that through this we gain nearness to Allah and are rewarded by Him. By cursing the enemies of ahlul bayt (as) we affirm our wilayah to ahlul bayt (as). There are so many ahadith in our books about the virtues of cursing them specially cursing abu bakr and umar, which raises the authenticity of those ahadith on it that may be 'weak' in chain. Some ahadith go as far as to say all sins are on their neck and that anyone who loves them is a kafir. Here are two examples from al-kafi shareef 2. قال الإمام موسى بن جعفر الكاظم (عليهما السلام) لمّا سُئل عن أبي بكر وعمر: «هما الكافران عليهما لعنة الله والملائكة والناس أجمعين. والله ما دخل قلب أحد منهما شيء من الإيمان. كانا خدّاعين مرتابين منافقين حتى توفتهما ملائكة العذاب إلى محل الخزي في دار المقام». (الكافي الشريف ج8 ص125). Imam Musa ibn ja'far al-kazhim (as) was asked about abu bakr and umar and replied: "They are kuffar, upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels and all of mankind. By Allah not a single thing from faith entered into their hearts. They were cheats, distrustful and hypocrites till the angels of punishment took them to the place of disgrace in darul maqam." 3. كان أئمة أهل البيت (عليهم السلام) يلعنون أعداء الله في الصلوات وفي أدبار الصلوات كما كان يفعل الإمام الصادق عليه السلام، فقد أخرج الكليني عن الحسين بن ثوير وأبي سلمة السراج قالا: ”سمعنا أبا عبد الله عليه السلام وهو يلعن في دبر كل مكتوبة أربعة من الرجال وأربعا من النساء، أبو بكر وعمر وعثمان ومعاوية، وعائشة وحفصة وهند وأم الحكم أخت معاوية“. (الكافي ج3 ص342). The imams of ahlul bayt (as) used to curse the enemies of Allah in their prayers and after their prayers as Imam Sadiq (as) did. This was reported by al-kulayni from al-hussain ibn thwair and abi salama who said: "we heard aba abdillah (as) and he cursed at the end of every prayer four men and four women abu bakr, umar, uthman, muawiyah, aisha, hafsa, hind, and umm alhakam the sister of muawiyah."

    Cursing sunni personalities

    It is a narration, here it is the Sanad: Muhammad b. Qulawey and al Hussain b. al Hasan b. Bandar al-Qummi , both from Sa'd. Abdullah from Ibrahim b. Mahzyar and Muhammad b. 'Isa, from Ali b. Mahzyar, from Imam al Jawad (as). They cursed them too and teaches us to curse them too. I recommend for you Ziarat Ashura.

    Shahaba and Umar and

    Shia do not believe in the concept of Adalah of companions ie Sahaba which means that all the companions were Adil .This concept does not exist in quran. The quran does categorize the companions in three groups: First group are believers who were true believers in the life of the prophet saw and after him. Second group includes the companions were believers but disobeying the prophet saaw even in his life. Third group includes the hypocrites who were threaten by quran that will go out of fold of Islam. The verses of Quran and hadith of the prophet saaw confirm these groups. The link is given below: The historical events further make the clarification oft these facts.
