    If it's very important to you I would find a respectful way to ask her, otherwise it might always bother you that you didn't ask her before marriage. But don't let it be one of the first things you ask her, that's off-putting. Or if you can make yourself pretty certain about the matter without asking outright, then do that instead.

    Thoughts 2019

    It’s the last night of the month of Ramadan. His luggage is packed, placed by the door and the place is full with people who came to have a final look at him and enjoy a last moment with the guest. As we watch the guest sipping his final drops of our hospitality, he asks to be excused; we realize now that all the hospitality we offered was not yet enough to meet his status. So we hold his hand tight wish that he would not let go and hope to keep him longer. We become remorseful and ask for forgiveness and say “My dear guest, I’m sorry.” At the end of this blessed month we say “O Allah, forgive me. My Lord, I could have done more but I did not, so forgive me. My Lord, excuse my shortcomings and blemishes, You are indeed oft -Forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me.” Ali b. Abi Talib may Allah be pleased with him once said, “Be concerned more over the acceptance of your deeds than over the deeds themselves for Allah does not accept deeds except from the righteous. Didn’t you read Allah’s statement: ‘Verily, Allah accepts only from the Muttaqeen -Righteous.’ (al-Ma’idah 5:27)” It’s time to prepare our presentation for the angels to see and report to Allah. How professional do you think our presentation will look? This is the time when you need all the skills of du’a and invocation you have learned so far. And if you feel it’s too late to prepare for this presentation, then know that Allah accepts from the deeds their ends. Therefore, make your last deeds the best of all deeds. We ask Allah to accept from us the little, regardless of how much it was, of what we offered from acts of worship during this blessed month of Ramadan. In a final moment of showing our gratitude to our beloved guest and how much we were honored with his presence, we raise our voices with thanks and praises, with shukr and takbeer to Allah. Allah says: “He wants you to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him (in takbeer) in that He has guided you, and perchance you shall be grateful.” (al-Baqarah 2:185).

    It wasn't an awnser. It's an exposure of a growing trend in Shi'ism which will be of no good to Shi'is and Sunni's in particular and Muslims in general. One can support the imamate belief on valid grounds but to insist on cursing and denigration of fellow Muslims goes too far. What does distinguish those Shi'is from extreme Sunni's with nasb tendencies? People love to debunk asnd critisize without offering any solution. And even IF scholars supported such a stance for 1400 years then it's time to realise that it solved NOTHING. Same as those who consider Muawiya a Sahabi while he was a clear munafiq and nasibi. Which is also only polarising Muslims more and more.

    That Hadith is meant to be taken figuratively so one could avoid sinning. The Qur'an states that no person bears the sins of another.

    [Closed/Review]Being Muslim and Gay

    سلام From the Qur'an, we learn that homosexuality emerged at the time of Lut. Before the time of the people of Lut, no other people had committed such abomination. We learn, according to a n authentic narration, that it appeared due to Shaitan's direct involvement. A group of boys were sitting while Shaitan shape-shifted to look like a woman. She joined them and excited them. Once the boys were sexually aroused and intoxicated by their arousal, Shaitan leaves and the boys continue among themselves. This is the birth of homosexuality! Their activity, like all activities, must have changed the state of their bodies and minds, which in turn may have affected the genetic material that they passed on. So, it's possible that though homosexuality started purely due to sinful activities, it may have continued partially due to "natural" reasons. Some people may be born naturally inclined towards homosexuality, which makes it harder for them to stay away from such sinfulness. This being the case, it's important to not assume all homosexuals are so purely because of their choices. Biological and physiological factors may be at play. This should affect how we behave towards them. We should be more empathetic though not accepting of their sins. Homosexuality is never okay like all other sins. However, let's not forget that drinking wine and lying and gossiping are considered the worst of sins, and yet we have friends and family members who may very casually and regularly commit such sins, and we do not mistreat them. So, we ought not to mistreat homosexuals but rather pray for their healing and return.

    I'm in the reverse position. My brother's wife never asks us round, ok once or twice a year. So I just pop over and help myself. My family complain about her bad aklaq, but I defend her and say that she never stops me taking food out of her pots or fridge.

    Couldn't you extend tomorrow, after all Saudi led calendar puts it at 29 days of Ramadan, if they started a day before us. If you fasted tomorrow that would be 30 days. Shias in United Kingdom are currently on day 28 (29 now that it has passed maghrib) with Eid likely on Wednesday. 29 days of fasting for us too. You didn't know better but how about getting on track, otherwise you're perpetually following their calendar. Islamic Centre of England

    Do you think centuries of animosity and persecution of a minority will cease once some Shias stop cursing privately and publically? Ushering in a new age of tolerance and unity? Even though the polemics will always point to what our scholars have said. It wont go away. Once online even more so. It is not that I do not want such things, just I am not naive to not realise Islam itself was disunited literally immediately after the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). The rest is history. It will never happen. True peace will be the return of the Imam ajtfs There has never been true peace between the two, there has been moments of cooperation or peace treaties and alliances in history but no true lasting peace. Sorry if I'm being pessimitic/realistic.

    That's the thing, it is actually not a trend, rather the status quo with an immense history. The trend if anything is the pro unity in modern Shiiism. However I wouldn't be so quick to assume this is a solution either, especially when anti Shias need no excuses to hate and furthermore, in this information age, no sugar coating will cover up what is in our books, even those who are vocal about unity have either said things in the past or said things elsewhere contradicting pro unity statements. Like our friends at TSD, reading this thread no doubt, can attest to I am not saying what is wrong or right, merely saying how it is.

    If the enemy asks you about Sunni's he doesn't do that out of love for you. Same when he asks Sunni's about Shi'is. The only thing he wants to know is the weak spots of both so he can deepen the gap and inflame the hatred more. Wallahi I believe all Muslims can unite on a common ground. Our ahaadith may differ but then at least unite on Shahada and the Qur'an. All Muslims know who Imam Ali (KW) is. Insha'Allah Sunni's will admit his rank above Sahaba. He (KW) is the self and brother of Sayyidina Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). This is common sense and no emotional talk.

    EID plans?

    Not sure my plans yet. Eid prayer is an hour away, husband has to work, we only have 1 car atm, and I'm scared of going by myself with a baby bc anxiety. So probably nothing on Eid day itself. But that weekend I will probably spend with my side of the family. Fishing, barbecue, party, have all been mentioned. My niece is graduating as well so we can throw that in the mix. My husband might take his side of the family to a Greek restaurant, so if I go too then that is the food mention for you. That restaurant has the best bread appetizer with this delicious sun dried tomato dipping oil. Yumm! I've been craving lemon bars and peanut butter cookies so I want to make some to share with others. Hopefully I get around to it. I want to buy a gift for my father in law and his wife. Not sure what to get and running out of time. Yep those are the plans for now.

    So just to clarify, you have no example of a fatwa from a marjaee that you personally believe goes against Islam or the "times"? What do you base that on? All schools of Islam have a 3 rakah maghrib prayer, as far as I know none of them differ on this. Just to clarify, I am not trying to "confront" you or anything of such sort, just trying to understand your way of looking at this subject.

    How would he become reassured that your daughter respected her chastity without asking questions? By the way she dresses or by the way people talk about her family? Theres a lot of corruption in the end of times. If a man wants to marry a virgin girl who has not been in any physical relationships outside of marriage, then he has the right to do so. Same for the women who wants a man with such background.

    It sounds like the real problem is that you don’t have good company and you get lonely on eid especially because you see all these people with their friends and family. I hope Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) helps you find good sisters to befriend or makes it so that your closer to your family and can celebrate with them. Of course you will also have to put in an effort with regards to that. For me personally, after being hungry for 30 days and not being able to work out, I find Eid fun if not for anything else, then at least for the sake of me being able to eat pizza for breakfast and go work out afterwards. Its nice not to be hungry and to be able to be active. But on a more serious note, inshaAllah you can make eid more fun for your children the day you have them or between yourself and your future husband. Buy gifts for each other, decorate the house, invite people over (such as converts who are also lonely, or people far away from their families like yourself), go out for a picnic maybe BBQ, make games for the children give them eid gifts, etc. We got many days of celebration in Islam, especially as Shias, too bad we don’t make anything out of them, we barely bother to know the dates to begin with.

    It was fun as a kid but now it's usually just eh. But I'll keep what you said in mind and make Dua especially for those who are lonely on Eid inshaAllah. To make it fun for yourself you can treat yourself to do something fun or go to a restaurant or buy something you've been wanting. I know that sounds lonely but at least your brain will associate Eid with something a little special.

    Could you define what you mean by "the scope of his own time"? And could you give an example of a ruling that you consider to be out of the scope of our time? As far as death sentence to an apostate goes, keep in mind that it's one thing to be a Muslim by name and an apostate by heart, another thing to be apostate consciously and subconsciously and another to be openly an apostate, letting everyone know it proudly and fight against Islam and faith in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) while living in a Muslim country. It stems from hadiths regarding the sunnah of Rasulullah(S), thus you are following something that techincally "adds to the holy Qur'an", so there is no issue with hadiths that clarify ayahs of the holy Qur'an that tells us to pray.

    I don’t think you should ask. Just do your research on her as In ask people then if you speak to her and she’s good alhamdulilah. In other words you marry a good Muslim girl who is good and intends to stay good.

    If a potential suitor asked that question about my daughter, it would definitely count against them. Why would they pursue a girl if they have doubts about her chastity if that is important to them? I answered with regard to my daughter because I was married with two children before I even learned about Islam.

    2453. If the husband makes it a condition before Nikah, that the woman should be a virgin, and it transpires after Nikah that she is not virgin, he can repudiate the marriage. https://www.Sistani.org/english/book/48/2352/

    I remember I read somewhere about this. I’m not sure if it’s Shia or Sunni fiqh, but someone said if a man wanted to marry a virgin woman, and she said she is virgin but when both of them got married and he found out that she is lying, he have right to divorce her. Have you ever heard about this?

    Sins and effects are not the same thing. A child certainly does bear the burden of an abusive parent, though the child is blameless. Anyway, having a tendency toward homosexuality is not a sin. It is only a sin to have intimate relations outside of marriage.

    There are some misconceptions surrounding this. Firstly, the only thing that was 'outlawed' was insulting, and this came as a result of some videos where a certain individual slandered certain personalities. Secondly we can't say it was outlawed, because such behavior was never permissible to begin with. Insults against anyone, regardlessof who it is, are not from the akhlaq of our madhhab. Therefore what the scholars issued was a reminder rather than a new fatwa. Finally, bara'ah means to disassociate. It has nothing to do with cursing or abusing. Wallahu a'lam

    May Allah help you sister My heart has been aching for you ever since I read what you've been through. No one deserves to be abused physically or verbally. Staying at a women's shelter seems like the only way out for now, so you made the correct decision. And I would suggest that you don't even thinking of going back, who knows what your father or uncle can do if you go home. I'm scared for you. I really wish I knew of anyone living in Norway who would be able to help you. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is with the patient, just be patient for now sister and Inshallah sooner or later this pain will end.

    HELP ME REFUTE THIS

    Don't apologise brother, but honestly as @Gaius I. Caesar says, all of the answers are in the Qur'an, there are really clear English translations (or other languages I am sure) that answer so many questions. Whenever you have doubts just spend a bit of time with the Qur'an. These Hindus with all due respect, they don't care much for what happens if their arguments break your faith. They only care for themselves. Nobody else on this planet really has your best interests at heart apart from Allah, Allah who made His guidance easy for us, a relief for us, a light for us. We all want what is best for you, but we do not know all that is best for you, and we don't know you even a speck as much as Allah does. So, have faith in the One who wants the best for you and knows you even when you have moments of doubt. You will surely go far in life if you hold on to Allah's rope.

Like I say, these people online that argue about religion to us are just doing it to satisfy their own egos in a way that doesn't involve ad-lib face-to-face conversations. Brother Noor Taleb, we enjoy your other topics, don't get me wrong. Just let the Hindus be, they just want to cause unrest.

    What would you say about people born with certain physical abnormalities that make it impossible for them to find a spouse? Or simply those who for whatever reason can’t find someone to marry them? Should they then try to obtain sex by any means necessary simply to fulfil their needs? Homosexuals are not the only people who are in situations where they can’t lawfully fulfil their desires. And by the way, most homosexuals could have a relationship with members of the opposite sex if they wanted to. It may not be their preferred choice, but they could do it, as many homosexuals are now acknowledging. Like most things, it’s probably a mixture or nature and nurture. Although an interesting question, it’s not really that relevant to the legality or morality of something. The fact that something may be ‘natural’ doesn’t make it moral. Why would we want to unite with the left, when they hate everything we stand for? They seek to unite with us out of a desire to attack what they perceive to be a common enemy, but make no mistake, sooner or later they will no longer tolerate orthodox Islam. Who says ‘Shia Islam’ allows such a thing? Certain scholars may allow it, but I have yet to see any conclusive proof of that.

    Quantum Jumping and Islam?

    Not sure about Quantum Jumping but if you want a book on levels of reality from the Qu'ran, Sunnah and Philosophy then I recommend Existence & the Fall by Hamid Parsania. A book called Shining Sun: In Memory of 'Allamah Tabataba'I also discusses the folding up of the Earth (tay al-ard) in context of the throne of Bilqis which is rapidly moved from one place to another in the Qur'an. To my knowledge a bending of space-time or "folding up of the Earth" is the leading scientific hypothesis to for teleportation..
