  1. I don't think marriage is about making a checklist and splitting tasks. You simply work together to do what you need to do. Whether that means working, cooking, cleaning or all three shouldn't really matter.

  3. Your issue might be having high expectations from other people. Generally speaking, I’ve learned that almost everyone you meet in your life can potentially disappoint and hurt you if you expect to maintain ideal relationships with them. This is what makes us different from the Ma’sumeen(عليه السلام). Perhaps things will turn out better for you if you change how you interact with other people and focus on self-development.

  4. That sounds frustrating. My experience has been that most people are flawed but ok. Maybe you need to change who you are around? I hope you find good people to be among.

    Doubt - part 2

    There is a difference, infact big difference. As mentioned in this verses: وَإِلَى رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ 94:8 And يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ ارْجِعِي إِلَى رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً 89:27-28 Infact Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) did mentioned the companions that soon he will be leaving this world and then he uttered the hadith e thaqalayn: اني تارك فيكم الثقلين كتاب الله و عترتي اهل بيتي When we talk about the hujjah of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) upon His creation, specifically the bearers of wilayat al takwiniyyah, we cannot apply the same rules to them. Because for us, these are the sahiban e amr, angels descend on them with every amr, and every amr is inclusive of their own death.

  8. I would also like to add if you are in a desperate situation, financially, healthwise, or you are afraid for your safety and this is your motivation for making this 'offer', please reconsider. Ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to help you and trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). This is the first and best option for mumineen and muminat. Also, if you tell us (you can send a pm if you don't want to say it pubically) where you live, we might be able to help put you in touch with local organizations that can help you. I will just restate what the sister said above, do not, under any circumstances, no matter how bad your situation, give your child to a random person. This is the worst option of all the options you have.

  9. Salam. First of all, if you contact a mosque they can help you get the assistance that you need. It is better for the child to continue to stay with the mother, because he has attachment to her and leaving her can be traumatic. Child trafficking "the kidnapping of a child for the purpose of slavery, forced labor and exploitation" is a danger in our world, so DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD WITH ANY RANDOM PERSON. A child needs to be cared for by a reputable, licensed and established organization in the country where the child lives. Go in person and make sure that the adoption is carried out according to the laws of your country.

  10. There infact are many verses. If you want something like that "O you believers!! From now your caliph is Ali" obviously that's not the way Quran address. So how that is mentioned in Quran? Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) revealed to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) after the last hajj, the verse: يَا أَيُّهَا الرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ وَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُ وَاللّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ 5:67) And the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) immediately halted the crowd at Ghadir e Khum, he called back those who went forward and waited for those who remained behind. Then he delivered the famous sermon of Ghadir in which he clearly said: من كنت مولا مهذا علي مولا After finishing the sermon God revealed another verse: الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الإِسْلاَمَ دِينًا 5:3 How can one say that religion is perfected & blessings become completed if Islam doesn't mention the successor of Prophet? Or Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) himself never nominated someone as his wasi? While the Quran do mention the "Ulil Amr". So how is it possible that Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) left the world without mentioning who the "Ulil Amr" is? And I can quote many verses which points towards the wilayah of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) but you need to see the verses in light of ahadith and historical records. Have you ever tried to figure out why Imam Ali (عليه السلام) refused to pledge allegiance to the first caliph? Why the first caliph forced Imam Ali (عليه السلام) for pledging allegiance to him? to the effect that the house of Ali (عليه السلام) being attacked and its door was burned. So why Ali (عليه السلام) was not pledging allegiance? You need to figure it out. Secondly, when the people started disobeying the commands of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) in the end times of his life, for instance, the case of jesh e Usama, the case of qirtas etc. And have preferred to gather at saqifah for getting the power instead of taking part in the burial of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), and have ignored the command of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) which he mentioned in Ghadir, what benefit you think Ali (عليه السلام) could achieve in clearly "taking the stand" that I am the caliph nominated by God & His Apostle? The words of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) are preserved in history, what he said to Abu Bakr and what he said in shaqshaqqiya are very famous. They all are those who knew very well that Ali (عليه السلام) is the nominated successor of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). They did what they did and will cut what they have sowed. To us, the command of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) & Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) us clear and have no doubt about it Alhamdulillah.

  11. The prophet, despite being absolved from strict obligations towards his multiple wives would nevertheless feel saddened whenever he delayed his appointed time with one of his wives This ordinance made sure that no reproach would be cast upon him, and neither would he be hindered by social pressures or customs. So although he had the peace of mind from a spiritual viewpoint that he would never be blameworthy, he still felt uneasy emotionally towards his wives whom he loved. And he did his utmost to spend as much time as he could with them all equitably. Besides absolving the prophet, the ordinance also put all the wives and potential concubines on the same level as it concerned them all from God's perspective. Through it, they find the inner peace that the emotional sacrifice they shall endure, and which they all were fully aware of before accepting to marry the prophet, is for the accomplishment of a higher objective. Their merit with God will naturally be higher given their wordly sacrifices The verse ends with an affectionate message to the prophet's household in general, stressing that God is aware of the difficulties in all levels of life that they must endure, and their toll on their feelings Then through 33:52, the prophet was specifically told not to marry more women or divorce anyone from the wives he already had, if it is for purely physical motives. Here is a man who is supposedly lustful for women, forbidden from taking wives on the basis of their beauty only, which is precisely what is supposed to satisfy his alleged lusts. And besides, the ones leveling this type of mindless arguments, mainly Christians nowadays should ask themselves; how does having multiple or young/beautiful wives stain his truthfulness as a prophet, considering the marital and concubinal history of the prophets of the Hebrew Bible?33:52 was an answer to the hypocrites' annoying talk and unjust provocations the likes that were directed at other righteous men and women 33:48,57-58. The prophet is not here being denied the right to divorce. He is denied to do it for purely physical motives. He could divorce a woman if she misbehaved, then replace her with one regardless of her age or marital history, whose selection would strictly be on the basis of high morality and spiritual qualities 66:5. His divorces therefore would be dictated not by whims or lust but by righteousness and uprightness in conduct. That is based on the notion that This negates the charges and calumnies raised by modern critics, mainly from a Judeo-Christian background, concerning the motives behind the prophet's marriages and these critics should rather turn attention towards their own scriptures where "divine ordinances" regulate whom is to marry whom, strictly on a physical basis Such calumnies werent reserved to Muhammad, in the prophetic history, the likes of Moses were slandered to such an extent that the HB portrays YHWH wrathfully descending on the culprits Numb12,Ex2:21,Quran33:69. Despite these talks, the prophet is consoled that he is under constant spiritual blessings by God and His angels. These blessings in themselves will bring to naught all such imputations levelled against him or the believers in general, while a grievious sin will be written upon the culprits 33:56-8.What is very interesting is that the verse, although restricts any future marriage, allows him still to have as many right hand possessions as he would like to have and establish concubine relationships with them. And yet, here again is a man supposedly lustful, taking only 1 such women although he had the possibility of having much more, even as many as he would have liked.Again, we see a clear pattern from the prophet, abiding by all the restrictions imposed on him but not taking advantage of the legal relaxations. That right hand posession that was in addition his concubine was the noble Maria the Copt, who wasnt even a war captive, meaning the prophet didnt even go out of his way to find a woman that pleased him. She was given to him out of reverence by an Egyptian notable. It is interesting to note that there are at least 2 similar precedents in prophetic history, of a prophet's union with the Egyptian daughter of royalty.First Hagar who was given to Abraham, and then Solomon's unnamed Egyptian wife 1Kings3. The Egyptian notable wanted to establish political relations with the prophet, and this gesture was considered normal as per the decorum of ancient societies.

  12. It is famous that the verse which revealed just prior to ghadeer sermon is this: Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 67: يَا أَيُّهَا الرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ وَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُ وَاللَّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ O Apostle! deliver what has been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, then you have not delivered His message, and Allah will protect you from the people; surely Allah will not guide the unbelieving people. (English - Shakir) Keep learning why wilayah of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) is of so importance.
