    AbdusSibtayn reacted to starlight in Does Islam encourage/accept cheating?   
    Let's look at this from another perspective. Every muslim woman with some knowledge of the religion (and it's incumbent upon us to educate ourselves about our religious principles and fiqh, so ignorance is not an excuse here) knows that a muslim man is allowed four wives without the permission of the the first, second or third wives.  However, all hell breaks loose form the woman and her family if the person dare remarry, even if he fulfilling the rights of the first wife. 
    The point I am trying to raise is, would a man still have a reason to lie and so secret marriages if women were more accepting of the rights given to her husband by Allah?? Doesn't the women's reaction has some role in pushing the man towards lying and deceiving?

    I don't think the concept of a man "cheating" is an Islamic concept. The reason why its wrong for a married man to go have sex with other women is not because he is married it is because he doesn't have the right of sexual access to those women. He only gains that right (nowadays at least) through marriage. This makes sense when you consider the gheerah is discouraged for women even called kufr for women as a man does not have to be bound exclusively to one woman. Conversely gheerah is praised for men and called iman for them. A woman gives sexual access to only one man at a time and as such her husband should be protective of her as she is bound to him exclusively. This is how it makes sense to me from a legal perspective.
    Morals are from Allah and as such His laws are moral. He is the objective basis of morality. We have no right to question the laws He has decreed for us. It is morally permissible for a man to have a second wife or a third wife or fourth wife because it is the decree of Allah.
    مَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْرًا أَن يَكُونَ لَهُمُ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ ۗ وَمَن يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا مُّبِينًا 33:36
    It is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter, that they should [thereafter] have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into clear error.
    That being said personally I wouldn't marry another woman unless my first wife was okay with it. A husband should care about his wife's emotional and psychological well-being. Its also especially a bad idea nowadays if you live in a country with un-Islamic divorce laws as it can lead to a man losing his children and other consequences.

    Its not lying and the reality is that a man doesn't need the permission of his first wife to take a second wife, he doesn't even need to inform her. That's not to say he shouldn't consult her but that her consenting or even being informed of it is irrelevant from a legal point of view. Once again morality is defined by the thaqalayn.

    Yes brother. The number of migrant Muslims has historically been quite low, somewhat around 10 % on a liberal estimate. The bulk of Indian Muslims, around 90%, are either descendants of the indigenous converts, or even first generation reverts like me.

    Depends on whom you are looking at. Yes, there are Persians that migrated to Hind (original name of the Sub Contintent) back in the day. However, there are significant indiginous peoples that were already there.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from notme in Animal rights activism   
    Assalamun alaikum everyone!
    Personally, I am fond of animals. I am particularly fond of dogs (yes, I know they are najis, and I observe all the taharah laws while and after dealing with them), as I find them to be very sweet and lovable creatures. I feed and care for, and occasionally, play with the dogs that live within my university campus. I also like other animals, and whenever I come across a sick or injured animal or bird, I try my level best to help it. This is the kind of animal activism I believe in.
    But those organizations and individuals who target halal slaughter, kosher or even meat consumption are all overboard shrills in my opinion. They oppose meat consumption on the grounds that the animals face many cruelties in the meat industry, but dhibah is anything but cruel to the animals; in fact, there are instructions that the animal to be slaughtered should be treated as kindly as it is possible. Much of their criticism against halal slaughter is misplaced, and a spin-off from the larger vegans vs. meat eaters debate.

    Assalamun alaikum wa rahmatullahi ta'ala wa barkatuh
    I have realized over the past few days that maintaing our iman in un-Islamic, 'laicized' spaces such as secular universities is a challenge of immense proportions. Those of us who have access to an Islamic environment often take this rahmah from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى for granted. Such an ambience, and the resources and guides that it provides, are a rizq for our iman.
    On a somewhat related note, I find it pretty intriguing that while we have excellent literature within our scholastic tradition on how an Islamic government and society ought to be organized, the scholarly material on how Muslims ought to intellectually and politically conduct themselves in secular countries is quite scant in comparison.(I might, of course, be very wrong in my assessment, in which case the dear brothers and sisters may please enlighten me.) The little intervention in this regard, which has caught my attention, had come from a rather unexpected source- Ayatollah Sistani (ha), who usually maintains a much reserved stance when it comes to the nitty gritties of politics. His book 'A Code of Practice' is quite helpful in matters relating to social interactions, and to a lesser extent, political participation, in a predominantly secular environment. But a lot more needs to be done, and a lot more to  be built upon  these rudiments. I feel that both the ulama and the lay intelligentsia in our madhab should put their heads together and do something to remedy this lacuna.
    What do the other brothers and sisters feel?

    From a religious perspective, everyone is allowed to visit the shrines of our imams...even the biggest sinners. 
    From a political perspective, there is nothing wrong with him visiting with Ayatollah Sistani. If by a slim chance he can broker peace between the Bahraini rulers and the persecuted shia community, then why not.
    Please remember the Prophet (saw) made peace with the kuffar of Mecca. Imam Hassan (as) made peace with Muawiya.

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Sirius_Bright in Plan a trip to Najaf & Karbala together under the banner of Shiachat?   
    It would be great if SC members can get together and make this walk a reality but there's too many issues associated with the idea. 
    1. All SC members cannot be allowed to participate since this is an online forum and there needs to be a degree of trust before getting them in. 
    2. Those participating in the walk will be coming by some tour or kaafela so their itineary will be different including that of walk. 
    3. Even if we're able to come off above two points still we're stranger to each other in real world. Anybody knowing about the plan could get in claiming he's Shiaman14 or Salsabeel or a teenager saying he's hasanhh.. Gimme my arms. 
    4. Most of us would like to remain anonymous in real life. If we're walking with the (actual) banner of shiachat, we're sure to come on front page of Shiachat times. 
    Why not plan something as The Grand Shiachat Party for Eid-e-Zehra where brother Abbas and Ali will be hosting us with to and fro business class tickets.
