  1. does anyone know where he is currently located?
  2. what were the chances of getting an answer from the author himself? and i havent been on this site for so long! jazakallah khair, you cleared up everything.
  3. snaqvi <--- cant speak arabic i tried using the 'english' tab on the site quoted by both fyst and macisaac, but i got an 'error' flag. anyone willing to translate? i would be ever most grateful.
  4. (bismillah) I was under the impression that we [ humans ] are superior to angels because of our free will... if angels have free will, what is it that would make us superior? ARE we superior? (salam)
  5. (bismillah) [ Shakir 33:33 ] And stay in your houses and do not display your finery like the displaying of the ignorance of yore; and keep up prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying. "Allah (sawt) is removing evil deeds and sins ( ArRijs) and is purifying them with a thorough purification" [ http://www.shiacrescent.com/2009/07/03/reb...-on-surah-3333/ ] I'm not questioning the validity of this, I am asking for an explanation to better my understand
  6. Jazak Allah everyone, you've all been very helpful. ^_^
  7. (salam) I've been trying to track down the oldest manuscript of the Quran... with little luck. I found this: "It is said that Caliph Othman made five copies of the original Koran..." (http://www.islamicity.com/articles/articles.asp?ref=bb0601-2875) and the original is... Do you know something I don't know?? :-)
  8. salam, (1) first of all, there is a difference between a wife and a mother. If a man needs a wife to tell him its too cold to be without a coat, i have to feel doubt of his mental capability to have a wife in the first place. it takes two people to make a kid; it takes two people to raise a kid. women should not feel sole responsibility for childcare. women should not feel more guilty than men if the child becomes ill. women should not feel that men are clueless when it comes to childcare, bc this only increases their own work load and adds stress to marital and family relations. Dont know if
  9. I am so praying an extra long dua for you! You said everything I wanted explained, and reinforced it two fold. Just one thing: I believe that all muslims are feminist. Islam and feminism are both against racism, classism, lookism, agism, and of course the all-time sexism. I do not believe we should be equal in each and every given aspect. I do believe that we are of equal worth, that if a woman choses to stay home and if her husband goes out to work everyday, they equally contribute to the household. Capitalism is the driving force that makes money-earners more important, because capitalism i
  10. Salaam, First of all, I’m sorry if I offended one. I'm just trying to seek truth and justice. If you guys want to PM me, please dont send profanity. Thank you to all who replied. I'll take it one by one: Imran Ali: I tried to speak to a mulana, as I said in my first post. Yousif: (your first post) I read that exact explanation, but thought is insufficient for my own understanding because (1) Women are good at more than just child rearing and house keeping; (2) It doesn’t explain WHY women are given less inheritance or witness-ship; (3) Imam Ali is just ('adil), why would he implicate ALL women
  11. Salam all, quote from Nahjul Balagha, 79th sermon: "O' ye peoples! Women are deficient in Faith, deficient in shares, and deficient in intelligence. As regards the deficiency in their faith, it is the abstention from prayers and fasting during their menstrual period. As regards deficiency in their intelligence it is becuase the evidence of two women is equal to that of one man. As for the deficiency of their shares that is becuase of their share in inheritance being half of men. So beware of evils of women. Be on your gaurd even from those of them who are (reportedly) good. Do not obey them ev
  12. Salam all, I'm not all too familiar with Khomeini's views on women. After the revolution, what were the positive effects that came for muslim women? I feel so immature for asking instead of looking it up myself but my computer is acting spasmodically and randomly crashes and I'm on a time constraint. I tired search engines, which only turn up articles about how women were treated like African Americans during the Jim Crow law days. (i.e. segreagated bus seating.) I have to explain to a feminist philosopher that Khomeini does respect women (using facts) before she publishes something less respe
