    Abu Umar got a reaction from Hameedeh in Tea Or Coffee?   
    Salaams,
     
    I prefer a strongly-spiced chai and usually have 2-3 cups a day. I like its amazing, complex flavor, but it isn't a party without ginger and cardamom...
     
    I drink coffee on occasion, too, mainly because it's free (and good) at work. I've noticed that coffee gives me a short, intense burst of energy followed by a big crash afterwards, whereas tea is much more "smooth sailing" (for lack of a better term). Anyone else?
     
    Lapsang Souchong is also good when I get the (somewhat rare) hankering for tea straight up, or with honey.
     
    All this talk of tea has made me realize that I need another cup of tea.

    Abu Umar got a reaction from Gaius I. Caesar in Need Advice: Getting Married   
    Salamun 'Alaykum,
     
    I agree with fkh5082 and Khalilallah: physical beauty and "attractiveness" come and go with time; the important qualities to look for in a life partner (and to develop within ourselves) are immaterial.
     
    I'm not saying to not enjoy your youth (reasonably), but how you feel if the tables were turned on you in this situation? How would you feel if you really, really fell for this girl, and then you came down with some rare condition or your appearance changed in such a way that made her utterly not attracted to you, thus ruining the marriage (by your standard)? 
     
    Many of us take our youth and health for granted; I was physically fit throughout my late teens and early twenties, partied way too much, got fat and out of shape by about twenty-five, and have been trying to regain my youthful vigor and strength ever since...I'm still not there, but I'm closer than ever! I've stayed married to the same lady for ten plus years and hope and pray that our best and healthiest years are yet to come (Insha'Allah); if our marriage was based on physical beauty alone we would've called it quits years ago...
     
    May Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì guide you in your decision
     
    Masalama

    What if you don't marry this lady because of her skin condition? Okay, so you move on and you meet someone else.  But she suffers from hirsutism (excessively hairy) even on the tops of her feet, will you move on?  Then the next lady comes along, but the women in her family spread across the midriff quite badly after childbirth, and the stretchmarks are gigantic, 2 inches wide, 1 inch deep.  Will you leave her?  Many women also suffer from blemishes on their faces due to uneven skin tone or acne scarring, which leave craters on the surface of the skin, or what about back acne and scars and dark patches on other areas of the body due to hormonal imbalances?
     
    It's not easy, none of us are perfect.  I saw a picture of Kim Kardashian without make-up and hair-styling...OMG, she looked awful. I almost didn't recognise her.  I'm not being harsh, really I'm not, but the lady you're engaged to probably feels awful about her condition. 
     
    I wish you all the best.

    The "travelers marriage" is generally practiced by Gulf Arab and Egyptian businessmen and students as a means of "managing their lust" (a ridiculous concept in its own right and a cover for indulging in sin) while on business/school trips and/or vacations (I assume current wives/families aren't invited to tag along on these)

    Firstly, "the winners write the history", as we all have witnessed in regards to Islam.
    Secondly, I see no reason why the Japanese would be painted as such... every army in one war or another in whatever part of the world committed ridiculous atrocities... so I don't think it's fair to single out Japan (as several people above stated)
    Lastly, as an arab myself, a reminder of what Imam Zain al-3abideen (as) said, (paraphrasing) 'if you knew the details of what happened in Karbala, your bladder would split.'
     
    Pretty much every ethnic race has been absolutely disgusting at one point or another. These days... it's by far America that is the most atrocious but ofc we'll never get the publicity/proof.

    Abu Umar reacted to Noah- in Iraqi Sunni Cleric Slams Media, Egypt's Azhar   
    Did Al-Azhar or the puppet Tayeb issue a statement when ISIS massacred close to 5000 Shias (civilians and military students) within the first week they got power in Iraqi provinces? Did they issue a single Fatwa or statement when villages of Shias were massacred for sectarian reasons in Syria many times?
     
    Just today close to 300 people in MOSQUES in Yemen are bombed and massacred by Sunni-terrorists and their supporters. Are they going to issue a single fatwa calling it Haram to mix the mosques with bloods of worshipers?
     
    Al-Azhar and Saudi Arabia, who condemn Iraqi people for taking arms to defend their country against brutal ISIS and other terrorists are nothing but political prostitutes. Someone should ask them, what is the alternative? If Iran doesn't help and if people don't take up arms to defend their lives, property and females whom ISIS sold in markets? What is their answer?
     
    Saudi & Qatari special forces alongside Al-Azhar Muftis will enter Iraq to liberate Shias in Iraq? When they kill and oppress them in their own countries?

    I also found it odd that some (Sunni) Muslims in my area were also quick to permit the consumption of non-halal meat as well as the use of non-halal leather and other animal products.
     
    While it is true (as we both know) that some Sunnis permit such questionable behavior, it is certainly NOT true that ALL Sunnis are so lax...In my experience, it is generally Hanafis who permit such things; I don't have access to it now, but this issue was raised at what was formerly sunnipath.com some time ago; I do recall reading a reply permitting the use of leather and (some) other non-halal animal products (but still no pork/gelatin)...as you might imagine, the argument presented in defense of such a ruling was (as usual) tortured and circuitous...

    God is a very close and personal God in so many ways that ignoring Him becomes impossible if you really learn to love Him. People will tell you "bend this way", "think this way", "believe this way" OR YOU WILL DIE!!!, but it's really between you and God.

    Sorry for the slow response! He was actually a tank driver in the Army. I remember him telling me that the Japanese would cut the tongues out of anyone who failed to tell them what they wanted to hear during interrogations (only after enduring unspeakably sadistic torture) and also had a penchant for eating bits of their victims. After American troops came across the dismembered corpses of some Army nurses that clearly showed signs of torture and cannibalism, they were given specific instructions to take no prisoners and show no mercy; orders which they fulfilled quite successfully, I might add... 
    I inherited a Japanese officers' "rising sun" battle flag my grandfather took as a trophy, complete with splattered blood and .30 caliber bullet holes. He also received a Purple Heart  for saving another tank drivers' life, but not before getting shot in the leg himself. As you might imagine, he also received permanent hearing damage from his time in the service.

    Abu Umar reacted to Yoel in Jewish Tulmud Permits Sex With 3 Yrs Old Toddlers!   
    1. For starters, the Quran quotes the Talmud several times and confirms that it contains narrated prophetic traditions, much like the Hadith.
     
    2. Much like the Hadith, the Talmud is a complex text that contains many opinions and narrations that are not accepted in any school of Jewish law.
     
    3. The Talmud bashes idolators and so does Islam. The Talmud praises ethical non-Jews who practice monotheistic religions, and so Islam respects Ahl al-Kitab.
     
    4. All this anti-Talmudic negativity comes from Christians who don't like that the Talmud strongly condemns their Trinitarian theology and the dogma of Jesus being an incarnated God. The Jews studied the Talmud freely all over the Muslim world and wrote commentaries on it that are still respected among Muslims. Some Hawza students in Qom study the Talmud, because it's in many ways similar and comparable to Ahadith collections.
     
    5. The Talmud absolutely does not permit sex with children! Only an idiot or a liar could read it this way! It says that if a little girl was raped or otherwise sexually violated, which is a terrible sin, she will still be considered a virgin. Is it not reasonable? Why should someone who could not have possibly consent suffer the consequences of someone's crime?
     
    6. Yes, cursed are the Sabbath breakers! The Jewish ones, because the Sabbath only applies by definition to the Jews. The Talmud actually discourages followers of other monotheistic faiths to follow this specifically Jewish practice.
     
    6. Killing non-Jews is forbidden murder, according to the Talmud, though it is, in theory, permissible to kill combatant men who worship idols who wage war against God believers. Killing Muslims or other monotheists is outright murder.
     
    7. The Talmud actually clarifies that that story of Purim, as recorded in the Book of Esther, is about Jews helping Persians to get rid of the genocidal elements among the Semitic tribe of Agagites, descendents of Isaac who went astray and became atheist genocidal maniacs. There is no reliable information about the age of the 10 sons of Haman the Agagite, but there was presumably adults and certainly evil manipulative maniacs who infiltrated the court of the Persian king. That's why the tomb of Mordechai and Esther in Hamadan was always respected by the Muslims.
     
    It is very unfortunate that instead of decent condemnation of Zionism some people nowadays repeat and invent lies about Judaism, using the same exact logic as Islam haters who also quote distorted and fabricated Ahadith. Please read here my little primer of the Talmud and Zionism.
