  1. Salam to all brothers/sisters, This website needs a rant section, where people can vent out their anger/depression/frustration! I am undergoing an extremely difficult phase in my life. So please pray for me, and suggest me some activities to distract myself. Please, and thank you!

  2. O, Ramadan ! O, month of tranquility ! O, month of callings ! O, month of good deeds ! O, month of blessings ! O, month of goodness ! O, month of thankings ! O, oh my dear Ramadan ! Ramadan has reappeared with a smile, blessing the servant all the time, making him conscious of his Lord while, being forgiven from every crime ! Ramadan is the time of blessings ! Ramadan is the time of good deeds ! The best time for prayers, and the satisfaction of all the servants needs ! Truly a time of happiness, that purifies the servants soul and mind, Trul

  3. Hmm you make some good points. However, I will object to beating a woman. Without a doubt tho the destruction of society has been in part due to the weakening of men by governments, culture and the media.

If the picture is true, then Why is it that otherwise perfectly intelligent, thoughtful and rationally minded people baulk at the suggestion that sociopaths are conspiring to manipulate and deceive them? And why will they defend this ill-founded position with such vehemence? https://off-guardian.org/2021/03/12/on-the-psychology-of-the-conspiracy-denier/

  5. I think it is very important for people to understand that there is NO "systemic racism" in the United States. Such a thing is very different from isolated examples of prejudice or unfair treatment. Systemic racism means state-sponsored racism that is legal and encouraged: manifest mistreatment of minority groups that is pervasive. Things like apartheid, Jim Crow laws, or outright persecution are examples. The US is over 50 years removed from the Civil Rights movement, and numerous laws have been passed to correct past discrimination. We now have affirmative action, set-asides for m

  9. @MexicanVato, I watched the entire video...may Allah bless the two brothers and may Allah guide the American brother toward the truth...the Zaydi brother presented himself really well...his manner of deliverance was sincere, humble, clear and articulate...not sure about synthesizing yoga with Islam however...Lol...my understanding is that many of the poses, stances and hand gestures etc. derive from pagan practices and are intertwined with Hindu forms of worship...generic or non-signature modes of stretching and deep breathing are universal and hence allowable however...with regard to Imam Ali

    If your illness requires you to break the fast you should break the fast and plan to make it up later. Fasting is a blessing. It isn't meant to harm you.

  12. Prophet Lut((عليه السلام)) never asked Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to destroy the people of Sodom, otherwise he wouldn't have been a Prophet. All Prophets realize that the destruction or salvation of a people or society is totally and completely a decision of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and they have no part in it. Their role is only to be as a giver of good news and a warner (bashir wa nadhir) and some of the Prophets had the role of bringing a Kitab (book from Allah) and a Sharia (Divine law) that modified the Sharia of the previous prophet(s). Their destruction was a natural co

  17. I take those 3 stories as an example of wilayah. You emphasised "we feared" but afterwards Khidr (عليه السلام) says و ما فعلته عن امري which means there is nothing he decided without being inspired by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

    Personally I don’t like tattoos and one reason for not getting any is that it’s not a nice look if I’m trying my best to follow the sunnah of rasool and ahlul bayt. I understand don’t judge by looks but I can’t imagine the prophets and imams repping 313 and having zulfiqar tattooes yet same time being the best of people it just doesn’t look good.

    I understand how you feel. I am feeling frustrated and depressed too. I feel like I have no one to talk to about what I am going through. Its suppose to be Ramadan A blessing month, yet mentally I am struggling to cope with various issues. I hate myself, I tried to be on the right path do things Qada Prayers, Dua,, complete repentance etc. I even bought both Volumes of Mafatieh Al Jinnan but life gets better of me. I don't know how to cope. Religious Advice is good and commendable but ... but... I still fall back.. Yes Prays Dua etc. Sometimes you need to talk to directly face to face or

  28. We are all weak men these days, more or less, whether by conscious or unconscious “choice” (conditioning), regardless of our background and viewpoint. Sometimes physical punishment can be a substitute for constructive action, while at other times it is the only appropriate thing to do. I do believe, however, that men have become weak because of women’s lack of loyalty toward their masters (husbands). Historically the male elites who have furthered the NWO were under the influence of their wives. Women still are the real “power behind the throne,” even today. Men are manipulated by women to car

  29. ::Strokes beard:: perhaps you are right. I will reflect on this. There are cases however where weak men hit women, because they do not act deserving of respect, thus the woman doesn't respect him. I just simply use the Patrice O'neal method with women. I beat them logically, because they are emotional beings and end up speaking irrationally when they are fussing over their ever changing states of mind. If they don't rectify themselves, I leave them. Then suddenly they want to change. That is one of the reasons I contemplate staying single.

You share views similar to this guy 1769–1821: Napoleon Bonaparte "We treat women too well, and in this way have spoiled everything. We have done every wrong by raising them to our level. Truly the Oriental nations have more mind and sense than we in declaring the wife to be the actual property of the husband. In fact nature has made woman our slave ... Woman is given to man that she may bear children ... consequently she is his property." "Women ... are mere machines to make children". "Wom

    No, we shouldn't tattoo verses of the Qur'an or the names of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) or the Ahl al Bayth (a): There is no difference between the well recognized Maraaji’ of Taqleed on the permissibility of having Tattoo. All of them say that it is permissible as far as it does not contain Quran or holy names of Allah and Infallible, and it should not be shown to non Mahram man if it is on female. Wassalam. I have not seen a fatwa which explicitly prohibits tattooing. However, one has to be careful what picture or image will be tatooed. Anything which is immoral or with se

Hi , It's a life style which just supports being religious without having interaction with social & political corruption & tyrany which mostly in western world is supporting LGBT & forcing of accepting it by others which is the most evil deeds but also in other hand being true religious or faithfull means ordering good & forbidding evil which at lowest point of it you must be angry in your heart due to doing evil deeds in any place or anyone even yourself which without ordering good & forbidding evil nobody will rech salvation even by being religious or faithfull or spiritu

Also, I would like to add that most people are reaching out to social media, thinking that there is some random person out there in cyber space that has a solution to their problem. The reality is that almost always the solution to the problem is within themselves or within their immediate community where they live, with the help of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). When people open up to random people in cyber space, all they do is possibly create problem for themselves in the future, when their future spouse or future employer searches them up and finds their posts, when t

This is 100% true. This is not to say the cops shooting people is okay, it obviously isn’t. But people keep saying white cops are killing black people when in reality they kill more white people. Why didn’t anyone say anything about that? Why didn’t anyone talk about the black cop that put a few bullets in a white man’s back not long ago? You keep saying “republicans” and “right wing”.

  48. No. This is not how research works, especially when it comes to things like genetics and such. You can prove this research by replicating it. Once you replicate it and find the same evidence they become facts. And this is a fact that Autism happens before birth, not after being vaccinated. Vaccines protect you from dying and spreading diseases to other people im society, those who die from vaccines are a very small number and is usually caused by human error, not the vaccine.
