    I am not sure how to feel... I remember coming on to this website first in 2011/2012 under a different account and I would always rant about my poisonous father who hurt my mother and his own children so terribly. I lived through so much fear, anxiety, and post trauma all up until his death. And when he finally died in sp 2018 I made sure that huge cement slab was placed on top of his grave. That is how much hatred he racked up in me. I though his death would finally bring relief to our family. But shortly after his death my mother became so ill because she neglected herself. I don’t know what weird, and twisted attachement she had to my father who treated her like dirt. But her health deteriorated dramatically. She became stubborn, she wouldn’t eat well, she did not take precautions out in bad weather or take necessary vitamins. She got a lung infection and my brother and I nursed her back to health. But then she couldn’t sleep well due to age and stress. She is honestly not that old. But her stubbornness from past lead to so many things. It feel like everyday she has a new symptom and she refuses doctor visits and gets agitated and defense . Her ways are stressing my brother and I out . It kills me seeing her like this. I’m beginning to take huge amounts of overtime at work this holiday season because it’s just so stressful to come at home. When I do overtime I make sure that someone will be with her at all times. Otherwise I even changed my work schedule to be more with her. I bought her so many meds that I researched are safe and she doesn’t want to try them. She is stuck on her own ways. I really fell into a deep depression and became careless about my own life. I dunno what to do anymore. I even think I’m becoming numb to her sickness because the worry and pain took so much toll on me and she continue to be stubborn. One of my biggest fears in life was the inevitable of one day going to lose her and now I’m feeling numb to this fear. I don’t understand. I feel like my parents were selfish. They never let my brother and I plan our own lives. I want my mom to be there for my wedding but I doubt she will live to make it. It’s like they didn’t give a crap about our lives. It’s like my father only cared about himself . And my mother dragged us through years of misery by her never divorcing him. My brother had to the mortgage looming over his head directly after high school since my father had poor money skills. Wallah I don’t understand. It’s like we never get a break. For the longest time I had to watch my father continuously abuse my mother and now that he’s dead she is still suffering even worse than before. I feel like all the past stresses she endured with him have taken a physical toll on her. So even after his death he’s still managed to haunt us. I feel like my father was always a narcissistic abuser and my mother the spineless victim case . She would take out her anger from him especially on me. There are many ways their marriage impacted my brother and I life very negatively. I’m doing everything I can to help my mother . In summer we took her to doctored and hospitals and now says her wishes are to die at home Naturally . So basically she hired me and my brother as google doctors and even then still chooses whatever to do from her mind. You literally don’t know how unbelievable This stress is. I needed to vent . Wallah I’m doing my best I don’t know what else to . Literally I only have Allah and Ahl Bayt as my source of strength and comfort now.

    I did it!

    Well,i was heading back from a trip with my aunt’s husband,And throughout my life i dont think ive ever had a decent conversation with him(keep in mind that the trip back was a long way)so the first quarter hour or so i was just silent and too afraid(shy) to speak,but after a while i decided not to think anymore and just start the conversation(I always think alot before starting a conversation)And it actually worked,after starting the conversation,i kept extending the conversation which I normally don’t do and I wasn’t feeling afraid while talking anymore,usually when my parents or sometimes friends ask me why I’m not speaking,I usually say that I don’t know what to say but this time i just said the first thing that came to my mind and i was surprised it worked so i will keep doing that from now on and now when i think about talking to people i dont feel uncomfortable but i have to practice a bit more especially the eye contact

    Prayers for you, your mother, and your brother. For all the years that your father was there, she had only to survive, not to look ahead, not to take responsibility for her own actions. No doubt she suffers many regrets and has forgotten how to see a better future. Can you convince her to talk with a counselor or psychiatrist? It is not unlikely that you all suffer PTSD. If nothing else, facing her past and being able to move forward would help. As for you, just decide to love her unconditionally, and try not to let her negative behaviors bring you down. If you need to for your own mental health, get away from there for a while. Hire a home care nurse if you need a break.

    Salam aleykom dear sister, I'm so sorry to hear what you're going through. I know this might not be of any comfort, but I know many people in similar circumstances. People who have a narcissistic father and a codependent mother (who often exhibits many narcissistic traits as well) who are selfish and only think about themselves and hurt their kids immensely if not destroy them completely. Your parents failed their roles as parents. And God will hold them accountable. They are supposed to help and support you and be a source of guidance, and not the opposite. Unfortunately this one of your tests in life. You have to accept that you'll never have "normal" parents and find other sources of support, love and peace in your life. Also, accept that your mom is responsible for her own life. If she insists on killing herself, then that is her choice. Do your best to talk sense into her, ask others (outsiders) to help, pray to Allah SWT and talk to Ahlul bayt a.s. If that still doesn't help - accept that and leave everything with Allah SWT. We have no control in this donya. God is in charge. When it comes to you, I believe you need to grieve properly. Do whatever you need to do to process this lifetime of abuse. Cry, talk to others, reflect. And find yourself, your worth, your peace and your happiness again. Many times you can find positive aspects of having survived the abuse - for instance that you started reflecting more on human nature and seeing reality/people as it/they is/are. That you also developed strengths like patience etc. Again, you are not alone sis, even if you might feel that way. There are so many people in similar circumstances. I know many myself and mashaAllah these people develop big strengths and wisdom and kind hearts. May Allah SWT bring much joy, happiness and support into your life, that you forget the bitterness of the pain! You deserve to experience the lovely sides of life as well! You have seen the darkness. May it be time for the yusr ba3d al 3usr now! Take good care of yourself! ♡♡♡

    I know no one here could write a piece that could ease your pain but we can all pray and ask you to be "Patient". The case you are describing looks like almost lost as she has given up on her. And you two are struggling so hard for your own lives as well. Just be with her and make sure you don't make her feel alone. InshaAllah you both will be rewarded. God puts severe tests for those whom He loves the most.

    Our standard is Islam. Islam is the Absolute, All Encompassing religion dear. We Muslims don't take people as examples. We take Qur'an and Ahlulbayt and our own intellect to show us what is right and wrong. And yes, this is not modernity what you wrote above, its Modern form of Jahiliya (ignorance).

    Salams, In regards to the picture, it's likely that this is the result of careless printers who didn't go over their work proper. This has happened before as well, I remember a Shaykh showed me a copy of Yusuf Ali's translation which had an error. An infamous case for Biblical translations was when a careless printer printed out a Bible with "thou shalt commit adultery", these copies were deemed the "Wicked Bible". In any case, I'm more willing to believe that there are printers who should be out of business at fault here rather than a coordinated conspiracy. This is generally sound advice, you'd also want to consult a more reputable translator. There are, broadly speaking, two types of translation, dynamic and formal equivalence. The difference between them can be understood rendering what is intended by a passage versus what is literally said by it. Translators won't really do completely dynamic or completely formal equivelance translations, rather they might be closer to one type or the other. An overly literal translation might be clunky and hard to understand as the idioms of languages don't match up, older translators are notorious for attempting to be overly literal and employing archaisms (think of "verily" appearing every line in Quranic translations for "inna" and such words, or "and it came to pass" in Biblical translations for "wayhī", it's awkward when a modern English speaker reads it). These two styles can be seen at play in the translations you listed in those screenshots, translators who believe in Gabriel being referenced in that verse included him though he was nowhere to be found in the Arabic, others rendered "statement" as "Quran", the more literal translators just stated what the Arabic meant. Continuing from before, there is always an interpretive element in translating the Quran with arguments employed to justify those translations, trying to find a non-obvious grammatical justification or referencing hadith and tafsir literature. In some cases even more formal equivalence translators might do this when they feel it might be awkward to render a verse literally, think of Q.18:86 where it's quite literally said that "he saw the sun setting into a pool of murky (or hot) water", some have attempted to render this in other ways so that it doesn't seem a false fact is stated. Even in less extreme cases, there will always be an interpretive element to translations. Translations are, after all, renderings of one man's understanding of a text written in another. I've posted this advice before regarding Biblical translations, I think the best course of action is to choose a more literal rendering of the verse with as little interpretive elements as possible (so this excludes such translations as Mohsin Khan's, Dr. Ghalib, or Mustafa Khattabs), better translations would probably be Ali Quli Qarai's, Abdul-Hameed's, or Arberry's. This is also good advice, generally speaking. You need to have a good dictionary and probably some basic knowledge of Arabic to be effective at this as there are different possibilities for what a word can be rendered as in certain instances. This is what I meant by all translations have an interpretive element. wassalam

    Makrooh acts in Taharat

    Wa Alaykum Salaam, I have the feeling that the English phrasing in the passage is accidentally ambiguous and can be unfortunately read in different ways. My understanding would be that it should be read as: That is to say that in 80. - it is stated that it is Makrooh to sit for urinating (and other excretion actions) WHILST facing the wind, or on a road side etc. Not to indicate that the sitting is the issue, but that the context and place of the sitting is significant. My reading of 81. leads me to understand that the issue is with the urinating while standing itself. As well as on those materials stated. I hope this reading of the material helps to clarify; I am no scholar - but this reading fits with my upbringing and Islamic education also. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى have mercy on us,

    My sister this sounds like a dire situation. I pray your mother takes your advice and seek a healthy lifestyle. I just don’t know...do you guys actively pray at home together, recite Qur'an together etc etc? Something akin to moving on from your fathers control? Is there a religious bubble at home? Maybe if that grows that light will help you and mother and brother? Even just playing lectures everyday on YouTube in the background can help. Humans tend to latch onto habits and don’t like change. This is especially true for old folk, it’s scary and it’s their dependency. Being deprived of it may lead to withdrawal symptoms like your mothers with her increased stress. Your father created an environment where the word of your mother, your brother and yourself have become meaningless. It will take even more effort now to bring things to normalcy. To bring power and change with your words. She’s your mother and of course she loves you. She’s just overwhelmed and requires the patience like you would of a child. That’s the challenge with family once they’re old. I pray for your success. Maybe save up and go to arbaeen together with mother and brother? This experience should help to bring everyone closer? Surely the love of Muhammed and ahl muhammed lis something that can unite us all? Ask Allah for Sabr and Iam sure your sincere heart will reap benefits again I pray for your situation to get better. It is heartbreaking and yeah like the brother said above make sure she doesn’t feel lonely. Although she’s your mother she’s also a human just like you. So being nice and kind and patient is something that can surely break the wall she has created. I can’t imagine how painful it can be for a mother (after a loss even if it was a terrible human) to also not have her sons by her. Maybe that fear is also getting to her. Who knows? Only she really knows. So please be patient brother

    Start reading and listening Qur'an. I tell you this sin will go away surely. Surround yourself with spiritual people. Don't ever watch pornography (and think about sex) and focus on your studies. Be in Wudhu as much as possible and improve your sleeping postures. All of this will help you become a better man. May Allah help you.

Also, if you have money buy a mail account from a trusted private site that isn't google or yahoo etc As for incognito mode (again, google), it only hides stuff from your browsing history.

    Why Shirk?

    Wa alaykum assalam sir. Allah does not punish one until a proof is presented to them. If a mushrik is geographically or intellectually isolated from a valid representation of Islam, he will not be judged in the same way as a mushrik in a different circumstance. A companion asked the Messenger of Allah (s), "Inform me, will Allah punish a person without a proof?" The Messenger replied, "God forbid." The companion asked, "So are the children of the polytheists in Paradise or in the Fire?" The Messenger said, "Allah has more of a right over them. When Allah gathers the creatures on the Day of Resurrection to cast judgment, He will begin with the children of the polytheists. He will say to them, 'My male and female servants, who is your Lord, what is your religion, and what are your deeds?' So they will say, 'O Allah, You are our Lord, You created us, and we created nothing. You caused us to die, and we caused nothing to die. You did not give us a speaking tongue, nor a discerning ear, nor a book that we could read, nor a messenger that we could follow. We do not have knowledge, for You have not taught us.' So He will say to them, 'My male and female servants, if I were to command you to do something, would you do it?' So they will say, 'We hear and obey You, O our Lord.' So Allah will bring a fire called al-Falaq, which is the most severe punishment in Hell, and burns dark black with chains and shackles. Then Allah will order it to blow into the faces of the creatures. The severity of its blow will sever the heavens, obliterate the stars, freeze the seas, shake the mountains, grieve the sight [of the creation], cause the pregnant to miscarry, and cause the children to grey due to its horror on the Day of Resurrection. Then, Allah will order the children of the polytheists to throw themselves into that Fire. So those whom Allah knows would be good will throw themselves into it, and it will be cool and peaceful for them, just as it was for Abraham [a]. And those whom Allah knows would be wretched will not throw themselves into the fire, so Allah will order the fire to overtake them for abandoning His order, and they will follow their forefathers into Hell." في كتاب التوحيد باسناده إلى عبد الله بن سلام مولى رسول الله صلى عليه وآله قال: سألت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فقلت: اخبرني أيعذب الله عز وجل خلقا بلا حجة؟فقال: معاذ الله، قلت: فأولاد المشركين في الجنة أم في النار؟فقال: الله تبارك و تعالى أولى بهم، انه إذا كان يوم القيامة وجمع الله عز وجل الخلائق لفصل القضاء يأتي بأولاد المشركين فيقول لهم عبيدي وإمائي من ربكم وما دينكم وما أعمالكم؟قال: فيقولون: اللهم ربنا أنت خلقتنا ولم نخلق شيئا، وأنت أمتنا ولم نمت شيئا، ولم تجعل لنا ألسنة ننطق بها ولا اسماعا نسمع ولا كتابا نقرؤه ولا رسولا فنتبعه، و لا علم لنا الا ما علمتنا، قال: فيقول لهم عز وجل: عبيدي وإمائي ان أمرتكم بأمر أتفعلونه؟فيقولون: السمع والطاعة لك يا ربنا، قال: فيأمر الله عز وجل نارا يقال لها الفلق أشد شئ في جهنم عذابا فتخرج من مكانها سوداء مظلمة بالسلاسل والأغلال، فيأمرها الله عز وجل ان تنفخ في وجوه الخلائق نفخة فتنفخ، فمن شدة نفختها تنقطع السماء وتنطمس النجوم وتجمد البحار وتزول الجبال وتظلم الابصار وتضع الحوامل حملها، وتشيب الولدان من هولها يوم القيامة ثم يأمر الله تبارك وتعالى أطفال المشركين أن يلقوا أنفسهم في تلك النار، فمن سبق له في علم الله عزوجل أن يكون سعيدا ألقى نفسه فيها فكانت عليه بردا وسلاما كما كانت على إبراهيم عليه السلام، ومن سبق له في علم الله عزوجل أن يكون شقيا امتنع فلم يلق نفسه في النار، فيأمر الله تبارك و تعالى النار فتلقطه لتركه أمر الله وامتناعه من الدخول فيها فيكون تبعا لآبائه في جهنم

    Prayer request

    Not sure if im posting this in the right place but tonight has been Crazy. my mom has been complaining about back pain and stuff for months but we never really think much of it. Shes been to the doctor and everythings fine other than the pinched nerve in her neck shes had for years. So we havent been to worried too much and neither has she. But tonight she was horsing around with my younger brother and she ended up falling off of his bed and hurting her back. She started freaking out, she didnt know what happened, we managed to get her standing and we were trying to calm her down then she fainted and hit her head. She woke up again and sat up, only to freak out and faint again moments later. She woke up after a couple seconds and started talking about maybe the devil is getting her for her past. Shes freaking her self out thinking she could have been possessed, i keep trying to tell her it couldve been because she was freaking out or because of her medication. We almost called 911 but she refused to go. Shes not fainting now, just complaining of her back, neck and head hurting really bad. She agrees that she probably fainted from a anxiety attack because she didnt know what happened so she was scared. I'm not sure what i should do, so the best thing i Can think of is to pray, which i have done multiple times, and to ask you all to please pray for my mother and inshallah she will get better. Thank you all, may peace and blessings be upon you.

    Masturbation is killing me

    Salam, Learn more about spirituality. If the spiritual part of you takes more control over the physical part, maybe easier to control the self for certain duration of time. When the physical urge shows up, let the spiritual part take control. Spiritual means you are controlled by intelligent that comes through your heart. You will put less priority to your physical part. Physical means you are controlled mostly by logics/nafs of your brain functions and faculties. There is nothing wrong with sexual urges (part of nafs). It is just like eating and drinking. Human needs nafs for survival. Just it has to be halal and there are limits to nafs. While you are using spiritual means to control the self, seek ways and methods to satisfy the nafs urges through halal means. Even using spiritual means to control the nafs has limit. Finding halal means to fulfill the nafs urges are also jihad.

Yeah, the website is great, but there are amazing descriptions about the 4 temperaments as a whole by others. (The four temperaments being SJs--Duty Fulfillers, NFs--The Idealists, NT--Masterminds, and SPs--The Artisan.) I find that Keirsey, in his book, PLEASE UNDERSTAND ME II, does an excellent job at breaking down the SJ temperament unlike anything I've ever read. If you want, I could link it.

    I'm afraid Hollywood has been degrading morals for a lot longer than ten years. Beauty pageants have been going for almost 100 years. America was tuned in to sex and drugs and rock n roll in the 60's. Heavy metal turned people to the dark side. Death, destruction, hatred, etc. Alice Cooper learned his audience the day he threw a live chicken into the audience. They tore it apart and some devoured it. Pink Floyd, (A British band that had a powerful influence on the dark side...of the moon). split up because David Gilmore couldn't handle the demonic activities surrounding Roger Waters. People thought, wow. The Rolling Stones almost broke up when Kieth Richards caught Mick Jagger in bed with David Bowie, people laughed it off. Bruce Jenner became Katelyn Jenner so s/he could be a proper lesbian, and was honoured for it. Each generation has gotten progressively worse.

    Why Shirk?

    First let us understand that shirk is not just the belief in more than one god. In reality, all sins are rooted in some form of shirk. When Iblees refused to bow to Adam, his envy was rooted in a sense of entitlement. Even though he was worshiping Allah for thousands of years, he was worshiping Allah for his own sake -- to be God's beloved chosen one. Iblees not only disobeyed Allah, but disagreed with His choice and debated Him. Iblees therefore preferred himself over God, out of arrogance, and this is a form of shirk. Shirk is not just having an incorrect conception of God. It is obeying something besides God. I may obey my appetites, my desires, my ruler, my family, my tribe, my culture, my priest/rabbi/shaykh all at the expense of obeying God. The object of Islam is to give Allah a monopoly on authority and submit to Him. As soon as we associate partners with Him, then we miss the most fundamental truth of our existence, and we create disorder and chaos in ourselves and around us. Imam al-Jawad [a] said, "Whomever pays heed to a speaker has worshiped him. So if the speaker speaks on behalf of Allah, then he has worshiped Allah, and if the speaker speaks on behalf of Satan, then he has worshiped Satan." (الحسين بن محمد، عن معلى بن محمد، عن أحمد بن محمد بن إبراهيم الارمني، عن الحسن بن علي بن يقطين، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: من أصغى إلى ناطق فقد عبده فإن كان الناطق يؤدي عن الله عزوجل فقد عبد الله وإن كان الناطق يؤدي عن الشيطان فقد عبد الشيطان.) As for the philanthropist anthropomorphist, we don't know why or how he came to the conclusions that he came to about God. If he never encountered the higher truth about God (that He is not anthropomorphic), then Allah will test him differently on the Day of Judgment. Or perhaps his philanthropy is being done for bad intentions. Allah is the Judge and He knows what is in the hearts.

    They aren't a big deal anymore and this accusation is something our radical left throws put to scare people into voting for the democrats, who have never met a moral code that they didn't despise. Once America decided to let Hollyweird's "values" be the hip & cool life philosophy to hold (hahaha!), The dominionism Christian right lost a lot of it's cultural power. That happened about ten years or so ago and sadly, the country is now a moral cesspool because going to church or having any religious beliefs at all gets you mocked and laughed at by the Ariana Grandes and Matt Damonite culture makers now. It's a sad state of affairs.

    Salam - Thank you. Ordered my copy. Waiting for it to arrive. As far as above notes on the cost of the books, nobody reads books that come for free. Knowledge needs to be "earned" and one way of earning it is, rather than going miles on foot and spending months with a teacher like old days, order a book from the comfort of your home with the money you have earned with hard work. No difference. Quit complaining! Thank you for writing a wonderful book. May you be with HIM.

    What are your hopes/dreams?

    Degrees are not for education, they are for certification. They are the dues you have to pay to earn a chance at certain jobs. If you want to learn, you have to either find someone who knows and attach yourself to them, or get some books and teach yourself.
