  1. This page gives an abuse hotline number in Pakistan, and also a pdf file , on what to do if you know someone who's being abused in Pakistan. http://www.hotpeachpages.net/asia/index.html#Pakistan
  2. The woman said her husband wasn't attractive to her, that he bored her. That doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't good looking. Women aren't as visual as men. We're more likely to be attracted to men because of their sense of humor or intelligence. I've met handsome men that became less attractive the more I got to know them..... because of something I found lacking in their personalities. I've met men that I didn't think looked all that good when I first met them, then they got more attractive to me as I got to know them....... because they made me laugh, or we had good conversations. If this woman's husband bores her and doesn't keep her attention, then of course she's not going to feel romantic towards him. I've seen a lot of couples where the man wasn't too good looking but the woman with him was pretty, but I never see a couple where the man is great looking and the woman is homely. I think men obviously care more about looks than women do.
  3. Yes it made perfect sense. I also appreciate the polite way you presented your explanation. It was the best comment in this thread in my opinion. I think some people on this forum forget that not everyone that comes here is muslim . I know I annoy people with my views, I can tell when I read their responses. I do hope they realize that I don't do it intentionally. Even though some aren't going to agree with my opinions, or even like them, I'm still going to give them anyway. There's nothing wrong with having a little diversity.
  4. I disagree. I think movements like the BDS, AAPER , End the Occupation and others, are the reason that people in the west are more aware of what's going on in Palestine. I think the reason why younger generations are not supporting israel like before , is because of information that is available to them through these types of movements,both on campus and online. While the kids on campuses around the US might annoy you, they inspire me. They could use their spare time to hang out with friends, party, go on dates. Instead they use it to try to better the lives of total strangers in need. We all have things in our lives that are important to us, but I don't think that excuses us from ignoring human right's violations going on around the globe. Or turning our backs on people that need our help. I don't like the idea that my tax dollars are paying for weapons that are being used to kill kids. I don't like the fact that we had to pay 300 million dollars for the Iron Dome system to keep Israelis safe, while they murdered 45 palestinian children just in the last 6 months alone. It seriously annoys me that a 12 yr old pali girl has been in an adult israeli prison since February and a 13 yr old girl pali girl was just arrested and put in an adult israeli jail this week. That 500-700 pali children are arrested every year. I could go on and on for hours but I don't want to bore everyone. Your solution is to just let this continue , not make waves. As for you not caring about, or giving any thought to this issue, you took the time to read this thread, and to comment on it. Twice
  5. The BDS movement is making a lot of headlines in the last year too, for their work on college campuses. I think the real change will come from the younger generations. Focus groups and polls taken over the last few years show young americans don't support Israel like the older generations have in the past.
  6. No people should not walk around naked in public, because it's not only a sin but a CRIME. If it's illegal to walk around Iran without a hijab, then yes women should either wear a hijab , or fight to change the law. Sins that aren't crimes however, should be between the person committing the sin and God.
  7. Let me simplify this for you. Some sins are criminal, and if a person commits a sin that is also a crime....then he/she will be arrested, tried and punished for that sin/crime according to the laws in that area. Some sins go against what God has commanded us to do, or not do ,but they aren't criminal..... like over eating, listening to satanic music, lying ect... those sins are between the person committing the sin and God. I'm not God, so if a person uses their free will to sin (as long as it's not criminal) , that's on them, it's really not my business.
  8. One side is oppressed, the other is the oppressor. It's a matter of being humane.....shouldn't we all care?
  9. Am I suppose to take this statement seriously? Alcohol, drugs, prostitution , murder, ect....are harmful , both mentally and physically. You're going to compare direct harm, to not covering your hair? Very disingenuous.
  10. http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=7510 The University of Maryland Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) interrupted a Jewish Student Union (JSU) event on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 with protests and a staged “die-in." Roughly 20 SJP sign-carrying students began the protest with pro-Palestinian chants such as “Viva viva Palestina” and “From the river to the sea/Palestine will be free,” across the university mall, but well within earshot of the pro-Israel event. “Nelson Mandela was pro-Palestine” and “Zionism Kills” were just some of the messages written on the signs. The JSU’s annual Israel Fest event attracts hundreds of students every year for free ice cream and camel rides. This year, however, the event also attracted protesters and the campus police. “Ride a camel! Taste falafel! Get your hair braided or henna tattoos! You can even try an Aroma coffee! We will have a variety of activities to learn about Israel and the diversity present in Israel's society. We will have many fun activities all day so make sure you don't miss out!” the JSU advertised on Facebook. The protesters then made their way down the mall and staged a “die-in” in the middle of the festival. Shortly afterwards, university police arrived on the scene to keep protesters out of walkways, per the university’s rules. “The campus police were called to the scene, and they came over to talk to the lead protester with the megaphone, and they told them they had to get up. The police did not seem to know exactly what the regulations were and what to do, so it was somewhat disorganized,” Daniella Berger, an active member of UMD Hillel, told Campus Reform. “They were told to move out of the middle and stop obstructing the walkways, so they moved on to the grass, dispersed a little more, and continued yelling and chanting.” “A girl right in front of me with a Palestinian flag turned to some of the people gathered and said ‘just walk away, just go keep killing’, Berger recalled. “Right now they're celebrating an apartheid state called Israel over there on the mall and we're trying to protest that," Sarah Tayel, SJP protester toldThe Diamondback, UMD’s student paper. “We're not trying to do anything harmful, anything violent. We're just trying to spread awareness about what's going on.” The Political Latinxs United for Movement and Action in Society (PLUMAS) tweeted in solidarity with the SJP after the event.
  11. If you think not wearing a hijab is a sin, then ask yourself this , "since when are we responsible for other people's sins?" God gave every single person ever created free will. Every single person ever created is responsible for their own soul. If a woman wants to wear a hijab then she should be allowed to wear one. If a woman doesn't want to wear a hijab, then no one should force her. Worry about your own sins, worry about your own relationship with God, and leave others to do the same. The world will be a happier place.
  12. Judaism and Christianity both have female prophets. The virgin Mary is a prophet in my religion. When I bought a Quran....the first thing I read was Surah Maryam, because as a Christian I was curious how she was seen in Islam. I think I understand why she isn't considered a prophet in Islam, because she didn't bring any laws. However, she did see an angel, and she was given a revelation from him, so I don't understand why she isn't considered a messenger.
  13. It's not just Muslims,Trump seems to dislike anyone that's not a WASP.....He was sued by the Justice Dept for refusing to rent to blacks....and here are a few comments from Trump about black ppl in general (oh and jews) : “I have black guys counting my money. … I hate it,” Trump told John R. O’Donnell, the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, according O’Donnell’s account in his 1991 book “Trumped!” “The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day.” Trump, according to O’Donnell, went on to say, “‘Laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that" In an interview with NBC News in September 1989, Trump remarked, “A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market.” Trump on Hispanics and Middle Easterners: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump said at his campaign announcement. “But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Japanese ppl: Speaking to Time magazine for a profile published in January 1989, Trump was asked to give an estimate of his total wealth.“Who the f knows? I mean, really, who knows how much the Japs will pay for Manhattan property these days?” he asked in response, using a racial slur for the Japanese. “You can’t help who admires you, but when white supremacists start endorsing you for president, you ought to start asking why,” said Richard Cohen, the president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks white-power groups. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/01/us/politics/donald-trump-supremacists.html?_r=0 The fact that a majority of republican voters support this man is an embarrassment to all decent Americans. The fact that white supremacists groups support him pretty much says it all .
  14. Peace be with you also I honestly feel bad for young muslimahs in the west that wear a hijab only to please their parents. Peer pressure is a powerful thing, and girls want to fit in and be accepted, they don't want to be different. So unless they actually want to wear a hijab,, then wearing one isn't going to make much difference in how a boy behaves around her, because hijabs don't keep girls from flirting. Go to any high school or university in the west and see that for yourself. I admire any muslimah girls that wear a hijab out of personal responsibility , because you have to be a very strong person to go against the norm and not only dress appropriately, but act appropriately. In my opinion though, it comes down to your actions....your actions send a signal to boys and let them know how you expect them to behave around you. Parents need to teach their daughters to have self respect and self esteem, to be strong enough to do what's right even if it's not what's popular. However, all this shouldn't be put on the girls , parents also need to teach their sons that girls/women deserve respect, whether they're wearing a hijab or not. The "boys will be boys" mentality is pathetic . Make boys accountable for their behavior also. Otherwise they're going to grow into some very disgusting men.
  15. I'm a non muslim western woman.....my views on the hijab are: if a woman wants to wear one, then she should.......if she doesn't want to wear one, don't force her . I honestly doubt however, that wearing a hijab keeps men from lusting after her, and I dont' think women should be forced to cover their heads, arms or legs just because men can't control themselves. As for extra marital affairs....if a husband or a wife are disgusting enough to cheat on their spouses, a hijab isn't going to magically change that. A pious , religious person ( no matter what religion they follow), will dress decently without being told what to wear. A pious ,religious woman will not want to show off her body to every man on the street. A pious, religious, decent person would never have affairs. The responsibility is on both genders...pious women shouldn't dress sleazy, and pious men should look the other way if they see a woman wearing something inappropriate.
