  1. I rarely watch videos - I have difficulty focusing on and hearing words that I don't see - but I will watch this video inshallah. It sounds really interesting. Edit: oh, it's subtitled! Yay!
  2. That's a very unproductive way of thinking and it is very American to criticize and very anti-American to try to censor criticism. If you love something, you want it to be the best that it can be. "Accept me as I am" is the cry of the person who is content in their failure and the same would apply to nations.
  3. Half the site lives here, and everyone has a theory. What's yours?
  4. That is not right. If you engage in physical intimacy with a person, whether your permanent or temporary spouse, they should be a person you would want as the parent of your child.

    Mutah is marriage, and Islam allows divorce. Think of mutah as simply marriage with a pre-negotiated termination. Good question. I hope the members here are able to give you a satisfying answer.
  6. Oh come on! All white people look like white people! Definitely rich people are not behind the fight to reduce climate change - they will be safe in their homes while the rest of us are dying in extreme weather events or starving in famines or having to flee our homes due to droughts, resource wars, and sea level rise.
  7. The utility companies who pushed for this need to just eat the cost: everyone who had electricity for that week should get a free week. And it wouldn't be unfair if everyone who had no electricity were compensated for the expenses they incurred just trying to survive. (Portable heaters, fuel, extra clothing, etc) It wasn't a natural disaster; it was a choice, and every death should be upon those energy company officials and lobbyists.
  8. God forgives. I see a lot of Christians who think they have a monopoly on forgiveness, but that's wrong. Use all the slippery words you want, but it's right there in the first verses of the Quran, the ones every Muslim who prays has memorized: "In the name of God, the infinitely Compassionate and Merciful. Praise be to God, Lord of all the worlds.The Compassionate, the Merciful. Ruler on the Day of Reckoning. You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help. Guide us on the straight path, the path of those who have received your grace; not the path of those who have brough
  9. Empathy. Love. Compassion. Acceptance of differences. Sincerity. Integrity. It has gotten better, but seems to be regressing in the past few years.
  10. When a person converts to Islam, their sins are removed. There still are consequences of past actions, but no need for additional repentance.
  11. So now I'm looking for two examples from you: a national level politician who isn't self-serving, and a national level politician who is reliable.
  12. Maybe. But give an example of a high level US politician who isn't a "public servant" only for their own benefit. And besides, who cares that her motivation was to make Ted Cruz look bad? (He's quite capable of that without help!) People needed help and she helped. It's a good thing regardless.
  13. Ask your marja, as rulings vary, but it's better to err on the side of caution if you don't know. Cheese can't be vegan.
  14. Yes, it is permitted to eat vegetarian. It's always a good idea to read and understand food labels if you're going to eat processed foods. It is not permitted to claim that your religion forbids eating meat, and it is recommended but not required to eat meat at least occasionally.
  15. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/02/17/texas-freeze-allows-jerry-jones-natural-gas-company-to-hit-jackpot/ Disgusting. This is an example of the filth that is extreme wealth. This is why I despise billionaires and some millionaires.
