  1. Wa alaikum as salam brother Many thanks for this interesting post. Do you know if fiqh al aal can be ordered online? I see that it has been uploaded at a few locations but it would be nice to have a hard copy available.
  2. The moment you call it a marriage it becomes problematic. If there was a conclusion I must have missed it. It's not a question of liking or disliking any eventual conclusion that may come out of the discussion, it just happens to be the case that homosexual relationships/marriages/contracts or any other tag you want to give them, are haram. How I feel about it is irrelevant. Forget about poking a whole, the entire premise is invalid from the moment you recognize it as a gay marriage, arrangement, contract or anything of the nature. I wasn't aware, thanks for the information.
  3. Wa alaikum as salam I think you are confusing the fundamentals of religion with jurisprudential details. A Muslim is someone who believes in the Oneness of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and in the Prophethood of Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). Furthermore as Shia we believe in the wilayah of Imam Ali (عليه السلام). The world of jurisprudence covers several topics with various levels of detail, so in general I don't think that a single fiqhi rule should result in one leaving Islam altogether. This doesn't make sense. Some of these rules are clear and others require the ulama to try and find an answer with the resources that are available. In cases where they rule with obligatory precaution rather than a clear fatwa one can refer to other fuqaha as well. Therefore perhaps you should investigate this topic in more detail, also checking the position of other jurists. Finally harboring anger against a faqih for a ruling they have given is unreasonable. They try to cover a maximum of topics with the resources they have available and it's not a simple task. The work they do is a service that facilitates the requirement of investigation for the rest of us.
  4. If you're saying Islam permits two men to live together without being intimate, then yes this is the case. However the very fact that they identify themselves as a couple, even without intimacy, is itself a promotion of a form of partnership which is haram.
  5. If you're looking for a fiqhi argument you don't even need to go that far down the line. The relationship by definition is haram.
  6. Those are basically ghulat who hide behind the Akhbari name. In reality they don't have anything to do with the original Akhbari school.
  7. Wa alaikum as salam For a proper reply you will need to refer to experts in fiqh What she did is certainly haram, although I don't know what exactly would be required in such a case for it to be considered adultery. If she has repented and put this behind her then I think her husband should try and find it in his heart to forgive her. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect us all from such things
  8. I think the scholars do talk about it a lot but unfortunately it will take at least a full generation before anything happens simply because the current generation of 50+ adults are unlikely to change their views or mentality. We have to take these lessons and make sure we don't repeat the same mistakes
  9. Wa alaikum as salam As other married brothers and sisters may have already informed you, there is no point in showing up with a list of questions. Its about getting to know each other and to determine if there is any real reason why you wouldn't get along. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) make you successful in this noble task.
  10. I don't know the details about North America, but in Europe the significant change between gay registered partnerships and gay marriage is the right to adoption, and this is also what I personally find most problematic because now a third party is implicated in an unnatural and immoral structure without any choice of their own.
  11. The assumptions and their justifications: -Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is All Knowing (justified by the Quran) -The Quran is the word of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) (justified by it's inimitability and trust in the Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) -Muslim men cannot marry women who are not from the Ahlul Kitab (justified by the Quran and hadith) -Muslim women cannot marry men who are not Muslim (justified by the Quran and hadith)
  12. I think this will lead us to the same discussion as previous threads, specifically that this line of thinking struggles against two crucial points: -the limitless knowledge of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), and therefore the infinite wisdom of His laws -the notion that what was permitted to the Muslim ummah after the revelation remains permissible until the day of judgement and what was forbidden remains forbidden until the day of judgements. Certainly if one can improve their understanding of the wisdom behind the shariah, based on authentic sources, then this is indeed commendable. On the other hand picking and choosing the rules on the basis of speculative theories is neither sustainable nor consistent.
  13. The mistake was to have this relationship for three years without being married to one another. Unfortunately you will have to accept the consequences. At this point she must either decide to marry you or to end communication with you. These are the two permissible options available.
