  1. I have 2 questions for you... 1. do you support the western police? and 2. would you call the police if your life/ family / property is in danger?
  2. I think it is honorable, you're not doing anything wrong, you will be protecting and serving citizens. A question to those against the police, if you were being attacked or burgled would you not call the police because its a 'dajjal system' or they are 'zionist slaves?'. Please... you would be begging them for help. I would wholeheartedly do it if that is what you'd like to do as long as you get the chance to pray and do your obligations you would be in an honorable role. Hats of to you and all honorable police officers.
  3. Salam Guys! I thought I would share some tips on nutrition for those who want more energy during the day fasting if you have a long day of work. For the slow controlled release of energy indulge in whole foods with high fiber, these following foods are my suggestions on research and knowledge for working I have: Wholemeal Bread - Opt for this over white bread as it digests slower and has less sugar (generally). Hummus - A perfect spread on bread or as a dip, will contain protein, a nice amount of carbs and healthy fats! (Monounsaturated and Polyunsaturated) Peanut Butter - Healthy fats and protein source Avocado = Packed with Healthy Fats! Oranges, cucumber, tomatoes, watermelon, etc. - Fruits and vegetables with a high index of water will be very beneficial, can get more water in without feeling like you have to drink it Wholemeal pasta - A powerhouse of slow releasing energy, regular pasta is digested faster! Sweet Potatoes - Same as above, white potatoes digest faster! Beans - High protein levels and slow digesting! A good alternative to Meats The idea behind slow release energy foods is that the sugar levels are controlled, if they rise too fast, it means your body would digest the food and the extra sugar and fats are converted to fat and stored on our beautiful waistlines instead of being used during the day. Getting energy from our fat stores is much harder than directly from the food after digestion. A spike in sugar levels (yes all Carb heavy foods will contain sugar) will give you temporary energy after suhoor when your asleep which is useless then will dip during the day leaving you more tired. Stay away from Whitebread, high sugar foods, fast food, a lot of meat (the less the better), very oily or fried foods. Why? Same reason as above but also during digestion, bile is used, and the main makeup of bile is water. The tougher the food is to digest the more water will be used so you will become dehydrated faster. Stick to foods low in saturated fat and opt for foods with mono and poly UNSATURATED as these are better for you. Saturated and trans fats don't really do you much good and you probably have enough in your diet occurring naturally. Follow these tips and you will be cruising through with all the energy you need, I followed this for my exams last year and Alhamdulilah Ramadan did not shake my performance at all the whole month and will be going strong this year again. I will keep updating this post when I have more time Insha'Allah best of luck to everyone with preparation!
  4. Salaam to you all Brothers and Sisters, as part of my study further into Islam I have been wanting to tackle all the controversial topics that I feel are often overlooked or evaded, I have two straightforward questions for those who may know a reasonable answer as I have not been able to find any information, 1) In an Ideal Islamic country where the law is in place as it should be if a Muslim becomes convinced that God does not Exist and therefore becomes an Athiest, is there any punishment upon this person? 1a) If such person decides he/she would like to openly debate and discuss his/her stance with Muslim Scholars/educated people, would this be permissible? 1c) If such a person is not welcome for his atheistic ideas, does he have the right to leave the Islamic State and live elsewhere free from Sharia Law? I would like to state that these are for research purposes into Islam as I would like to confront every question that is commonly asked and hopefully compile a record/book of my findings, I have not had any luck in searching the web for such answers and was hoping someone could even point me in the right direction/books that discuss these matters. (I have also messaged Ayatollah Sistani for the time being but I expect a reply in 3 weeks+) Thank you to all who post, Hayder.
  5. Allow me to go through the thought process with you, So there is a universe with a huge complexity in it, it seems you want to know where and how it came into existence. We know it came, and there was nothing before it so if God created the Universe then how did he come/exist prior to something that wasn't there? Scientifically, space and time are bound, if you live in space you are bound by time, but time isn't absolute so it would be very much possible that if you were of no matter at all and 'existed' outside the realm of space then time isn't something that applies for you. The best way I imagine it is as imagine a train travelling across the earth, the universe is that train, it is moving and the movement is time, everything outside the train, the earth itself is 'God' he can see the train move but doesn't matter where it moves it is still within his grasp, it makes no difference it's position to his existence, he is just there. So due to space-time link, it is very much possible for God to exist given his nature which is thoroughly explained in the Quran. Now how can I be so sure God created the Universe? Think about the laws of the Universe. They are absolute and doesn't matter where you are, you cannot change them, e.g. you cannot destroy or create matter for example. And before your atheist friends attack you with this, you can change some things like the boiling point of water for example, but that isn't one of the natural laws that's just a property. So for the Universe to exist something had to happen, a reaction, matter + anti-matter, blast of energy whatever you want you can choose. However, whatever it was it would have to still follow a set of rules, like for matter and anti-matter to react, there are laws of nature that dictate they will react. So where did the foundation rules of the Universe come from? If there was nothing prior how could they have existed? All you need to do it look into the complexity of nature and you will know something is up. Now here's an 'offence' question for you, if God doesn't exist wouldn't it be all about survival then? Why don't we look up to thieves, rapists, murderers etc. who live only for themselves? they are going to disappear into a void at the end of life, so no matter what you do it has no impact and you will never feel anybody else's pain because you can't switch bodies, no accountability so why don't we go mad? even better, why don't we all just commit suicide? If your life is a struggle and you're not rich enjoying all the pleasures of the world, it would make perfect sense to just kill all ourselves. But what about life and experiencing it? Well, it makes no difference whether you lived 1 year or 100 years if it is all going to perish. Imagine I told you to build a castle as glorious as you can, once you're done I will destroy it all, would you bother? If you knew it will perish immediately is there a point? Would you buy a house if you knew it would be knocked down? Nope, so why invest time and pain into a life that will soon terminate and you don't even know when! Plus nobody can argue with you about morality because it would have no foundation, seize to exist if there is no 'purpose' for anything. This is the reality of the atheist position it, to me seems a lot worse than one with hope in something greater. So as a challenge, can you prove to me it is bad to kill someone I don't like if I knew I would never be caught, punished or held accountable? Although there are many more points, I will leave it there. for the time being.
  6. Thanks I thought that would be best. I'm in Brighton, UK. So didn't know how I can go about that was hoping it wasn't too complicated but I guess emailing marja or something seems like the safest bet
  7. Salam, I am a student and at the moment thanks to the UK system I've racked around a £34,000 debt as of now. I am going to be on a 'placement' i.e. one-year work scheme and will earn approx £15-20k. I wanted to know will it be obligatory on me to pay Zakat and if so is there a way to calculate it? A lot of zakat calculators I find have a lot of things that have nothing to do with a student situation and silver, gold etc. Any help would be of great benefit, Thanks!
  8. My Friend, I am doing my University exams in the UK, and I can assure you Fasting is a benefit for ur studies during Ramadan just think when are you more likely to receive Allah's support than when fasting in the Holy Month? To study in Ramadan is a strategy, you need to be decisive with your foods. Complex carbohydrates such as wholemeal bread, slow digesting dense foods such as hummus maybe, and bananas for water retention, dates for sugar then water water water! I have been doing this and I sleep 5/6 hours a day and I feel great whole way through while fasting all due to my diet being exactly as how it's needed. This is just advice as making up 30 Kaffara's isn't something rationally possible.
  9. Salam, This is the first Ramadan I will spend alone but it is quite exciting, I feel it will be a good time to get closer to Allah. I still have my exams so Insha'Allah fasting may bless me more than hold me back. What other struggles will people be going through this holy month?
  10. one, it was doubtful and you weren't sure two, you were in a tough situation and it was a lesser of the two evils. Because it was not your intention to consume such foods I believe you have nothing to worry about.
  11. Not just on fathers permission but I just want to point out, if you do go ahead with this, you will most likely damage your relationship with your family, his family will fall apart if their not happy about it and his relationship with his family. Everything will crumble if theres is not mutual respect across all parties, whatever happens, I really hope this isn't a romantic fantasy, excuse my jumps to conclusions but you have to be in the situation to understand it and I'm basing it on what I have understood. Ijust want you to contemplate the ripple effects your decision may have...
  12. Call/Email a Marja, please don't get a ruling on Shiachat unless it has evidence such as starlights post above.. I wish only the best and will pray for those the topic is concerned about.
  13. Why do I feel that is not acceptable...
  14. Based on all the ignorance I've seen in my life (so far)... My brain.
  15. Logically, do you think Allah the merciful is going to send an All-out-Warlord onto the Arab world to massacre everybody? He is still part of the Imamat and the Prophets lineage so how can it be the rest were extremely peaceful and only fought when they need to, but the Imam will just decide to take on a large number of the world's population and put them all to death. There will be reasoning and negotation/preaching (I believe as I don't have evidence of it in terms of hadith/sayings) and remember the Imam will be in line with islamic rules so I don't think hes going to go start on people who don't want to start a war themselves.
