  1. Sala brother, Didn't check your response earlier. Sorry for that. I checked with the scholars around me and got the answer.
  2. True. Right on spot. Turkey is likely to replace KSA as a religipus hegemon in the future. Dictating the Sunni Islamic world (likely leading towards a neo-Ottoman era). Adding to your points, Saudi funded Jamaat e Islami, Lashker and Saudi-promoted (through Pakistan) JKLF (Jammu Kashmir Liberation front) and Hurriyat is full of terrorists who on the pretext of freedom, aimed at annexing Kashmir to Pakistan, radicalizing the Kashmiri muslim population and leading a successful campaign of ethnic cleansing and genocide of Kashmiri Pundit and non-muslim minority living in Kashmir in 1980s. Kashmiri 'slogan of freedom' is not a genuine slogan. It has extremists and terorrists hands working behind it. India is correct to condemn these motives but incorrect in the way it is doing (because they are effecting the normal Kashmiri population).
  3. A global sense of responsibility has made Al-Quds Day A sense of responsibility in the Islamic nation and a global sense of responsibility has made Al-Quds Day. Under the pretext of Al-Quds Day, let's review Imam Khomeini's words about this day, "Muslims need to be aware that today is not like yesterday. This period in history is not like previous periods when every tribe pursued its own interests in its own territory... Today, the interests of all Islamic countries are intertwined. Today, any issue in one corner of the world is an issue related to the whole world, not just their issue." At another time, he said, "Al-Quds Day is universal, and it is not a day dedicated only to Al-Quds. It is the day of the oppressed confronting the Arrogant Powers. It is the day when the nations that were under the pressure of American and non-American oppression stand up.” On Al-Quds Day, only films related to Al-Quds Day are shown, but according to what Imam Khomeini had said, the bombing of Yemen, the killings in Kashmir, and the hunger of some people in Africa should be shown on this day as well. When he said "universal," he meant that even American crimes in Vietnam, Latin America, etc. must be shown and talked about. Al-Quds Day is not just about one place, Al-Quds. Of course, that is the focal point. On another occasion, he said, "I am hopeful this day will be a prelude to ‘the group of the oppressed in the world [a united group composed of oppressed people from all over the world].’” — Agha Alireza Panahian #AlQudsDay
  4. https://youtube.com/c/KnowYourVEDAS This is a good channel to refer if someone wants to explore Sanatan dharma/Hinduism as per Vedas. Most of the hindus don't read or talk about Vedas. They talk about Advaita, Purana, Vedanta, Vedangana etc. All of this have a lot but not true Vedas. Like Quran is Islam. Vedas are Sanatan. So, anyone interested can go deeper in this and you will definitely be surprised.
  5. Not necessarily. Example: Eating non-veg and good food is halal and valid. At the same time, eating it within extremely poor people who can't afford such food is unethical. You need to care about how they feel. Again, I would repeat what I say. SC hides a chunk of beautiful discussions and threads where wonderful topics were discussed and wonderful points were brought. But they get lost in the crowd of millions of threads. If anyone considers, the team (on a side note) must work upon this problem so that those discussions can be taken out to provide answers of questions already answered. It will help everyone and a lot of time and effort will be saved. Anyways, coming back to my point, Sister @starlight once in a thread discussed how Islam is not just equal to fiqh. Islam is way beyond that. Fiqh just defines the boundaries. There is also akhlaq (ethics) in Islam. Ethical values in Islam restrict the individuals more and more and encourage them to take the best decisions. You can pray Dhuhr at the time of adhaan. But you can also pray (maybe) 2 hours later. Fiqh says this is valid. Akhlaq says "no boy, pray at the right time." Depends person to situation to situation. It is makrooh to have mutah with a virgin young woman. Socially or psychologically, she is not an infant. She has also a guardian to discuss this with. Who are men to decide what is psychologically good or bad for a woman? I didn't get your last question. And I remotely assume that I have answered it. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you and clear all your doubts about religion.
  6. Salaam sister, Khula does work. Most of the divorces I have heard happen through Khula only. Processes can be tedious and long. In Islam, divorce itself is a tedious process because Islam encourages sustainance of relationships. And yeah. Unfortunately true, at times society just aims to be Islamic but never works that way.
  7. No. I don't find these assertions to be correct. I think that your belief in Islam is intertwinned with feminism. Or, 'Feminism' is what you believe in and not Islam. And somehow you are trying to strike a balance. If you turn the table, try to get closer to Islam and develop your perception through Islam, you will find things a lot different. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you.
  8. While pointing out the loopholes of mutah, people normally miss out this. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
  9. I also do such promises. But I don't promise with Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) normally. I rather put a promise, ahad to Aimma (عليه السلام). Many people pointed out me that it is risky. Yes it is. But it really help me to change and become a better person. Now, your point: Is your promise an Oath: Verify below: 1Question: What are the conditions for validity of an oath? Answer: The conditions for validity of an oath are: 1. A person who takes an oath should be Baligh and sane, and should do so with free will and clear intention. Hence, an oath by a minor, an insane person, an intoxicated person, or by a person who has been coerced to take an oath, will not be in order. Similarly, if he takes an oath involuntarily, or unintentionally, in a state of excitement, the oath will be void. 2. An oath taken for the performance of an act which is haraam or makrooh, is not valid. Similarly, an oath for renouncing an act which is obligatory or Mustahab is also void. And if he takes an oath to perform a normal or usual act, it will be valid, if that act has any preference in the estimation of sensible people. Similarly, if he takes an oath for renouncing a usually permissible act, it will be valid if it is deemed more preferable than its performance, by the sensible people. In fact, in each case, his own judgement about the preferences will be enough to grant validity to the oath, even if other sensible people may not concur. 3. The oath must be sworn by one of those names of the Almighty Allah which are exclusively used for Him, (e.g. 'Allah'). And even if he swears by a name which is used for other beings also, but is used so extensively for Him, that when any person utters that name one is reminded of Him Alone, for example, if he swears by the name Khaliq (the Creator) and Raziq (the Bestower), the oath will be in order. In fact, if he uses other names or attributes of Allah, which do not remind of Him, but give that connotation when used during an oath, like Samee' (All Hearing) or Baseer (All Seeing), even then the oath will be valid. 4. The oath should be uttered in words, but a dumb person can take an oath by making a sign. Similarly, if a person is unable to utter the words, he may write down the oath, repeating in his mind the intention for it, that will be a valid oath, though as a precaution, he may confirm the oath in other ways as well. 5. It should be possible for him to act upon his oath. And if he was able to act upon the oath when he took it, but became incapable of acting upon it later, the oath becomes nullified from the time he became incapable of acting upon it, provided that he did not incapacitate himself purposely. And the same rule applies if acting upon one's vow, oath, or covenant, involves unbearable hardship. 2Question: If a person breaks his oath, what is he supposed to do? Answer: If a person takes an oath that he will perform an act (e.g. that he will fast) or will refrain from doing an act (e.g. that he will not smoke), but does not intentionally act according to his oath, he should give Kaffarah for it, which means he should should fully feed ten indigent persons, 750 grams of food stuffs (wheat or bread or rice). And if he is not able to perform these acts, he should fast for three consecutive days. Vow (Nadhr) : Ruling 2657. A vow is when a person makes it obligatory (wājib) on himself for the sake of Allah to perform a good deed or to refrain from doing something that is better not to do.Ruling 2658. In a vow, a formula (ṣīghah) must be said. It is not necessary that the formula be said in Arabic; therefore, if a person says [in English, for example], ‘Should such and such sick person get better, it is incumbent upon me to give £100 to a poor person (faqīr) for the sake of Allah’, his vow is valid (ṣaḥīḥ). And if he says, ‘For the sake of Allah I vow to do such and such a thing’, then based on obligatory precaution (al-iḥtiyāṭ al-wājib) he must do that thing. However, if he does not mention the name of Allah and only says, ‘I make a vow’, or, if he mentions the name of one of the Friends (awliyāʾ) of Allah, the vow is not valid. If a vow is valid and a mukallaf72 intentionally (ʿamdan) does not act according to it, he will have committed a sin and he must give recompense (kaffārah). The kaffārah for not fulfilling one’s vow is the same as the kaffārah for not fulfilling one’s oath (qasam), which will be mentioned later.73Ruling 2659. A person who makes a vow must be of the age of legal responsibility (bāligh), and sane (ʿāqil). He must also make the vow of his own volition (ikhtiyār) and have the intention (qaṣd) to make it. Therefore, a vow is not valid if it is made by someone who has been compelled to make it, or who in his anger made it unintentionally or did not make it of his own volition.Ruling 2660. With regard to a person who is foolish with finances (safīh) – i.e. someone who spends his wealth in futile tasks – if, for example, he vows to give something to the poor (fuqarāʾ), it is not valid. The same applies with regard to someone who has been proclaimed bankrupt (mufallas); therefore, if he vows to, for example, give something to the poor from his property over which he has been prohibited from having disposal, it is not valid. Covenant (Ahd) : Ruling 2684. If a person makes a covenant with Allah that he will do some act if a particular legitimate need of his is fulfilled, then once his need is fulfilled, he must do the act. Also, if he makes a covenant to do something without mentioning any need, it becomes obligatory on him to do the act.Ruling 2685. As with a vow, a formula must be said in a covenant. For example, a person says, ‘I make a covenant with Allah to do such and such act.’ It is not necessary that the act the person covenants to do be legally better; rather, it is sufficient that it is not something that has been legally prohibited and would be preferred in the opinion of rational people, or it is in the person’s interest that it be done. And if after the covenant is made the act is no longer in the person’s interest or it is no longer legally preferred, even though it may not have become disapproved, then it is not necessary to fulfil the covenant.Ruling 2686. If a person does not fulfil his covenant, he will have committed a sin and must give kaffārah. The kaffārah is either feeding sixty poor people, or fasting two consecutive months, or freeing a slave. On a side note brother: My Ahd was invalid as it was not with Almighty Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you, protect you and make you firm in faith.
  10. Salaam sister, Yes they do. I agree. Good or bad. Worst or fine. This is their personal life. If they are comfortable sharing it, no problem. But encouraging such discussions is not a good thing. *NAHJ UL BALAGHA* Saying 2: 1. He who is greedy is disgraced. 2. He who discloses his hardship will always be humiliated. 3. He who has no control over his tongue will often have to face discomfort. See the second point of the above saying. Why not create some case scenarios out of all the marriage experiences received on shiachat? The one who shares will feel bad, uncomfortable and might become sad after sharing his/her experience. Marriage is a social issue, so discuss it in a social way and try to make out a conclusion or a solution out of it instead of creating endless threads where everytime some xyz has to share his story in front of everyone. Marriage is a personal matter too. Do care about the zeal (ghayrat) and honor of the people. Also, encourage people to refer to Quran, Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) and the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Wassalam May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless everyone and solve all the problems faced by believing men and women.
  11. How much muta? Shiachat has really taught me that muta stands the most hot topic in the shia muslim community in the west. Fair enough. But in that case, create a consolidated thread on muta and put that somewhere on shiachat, where it is visible to everyone. End these discussions once and for all. It would help people in refraining to share their personal life when they are vulnerable and at the same time will get a good answer. Wassalaam May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless everyone. May allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect your faith, make it firm and increase it through knowledge and wisdom.
  12. Your life is a roller coaster. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) grant you peace and ease with your current family. I am just thinking that sometimes an act like 'divorce' becomes so vital that a person has to change his/her religion for that.
  13. I understand that some personal details must remain hidden. So, from your experience I understand something: 1. Weddings are made expensive and burdensome and therefore breaking a wedding is something a woman (or a man) will think a thousand times before that. Consequently, everything opens up after the marriage and sometimes one is unable to live with that reality. So, weddings must be made so simple and easy that even if a woman doesn't feel right, she can say 'No' even in the last moments before marriage contract. 2. In my opinion, (and I don't know if this arguments fits in your situation) the ability (Quvvat), patience (sabr), endurance and tolerance to get along with what you have and hoping for a good future seems to be missing today. You can correct me if I am wrong.
  14. @Shi3atAli1 @notme and others. I would like to ask a rather difficult question and please forgive me if I sound like 'pulling your leg'. Was it impossible to get along and adapt with the marital life you got? If yes, why? I asked this question because divorce in Islam is a dreadful reality, a curse or anything of that level. On the other hand, there is a hadith that a woman who will be patient with her husband will get the rewards equal to thousands of martyrs. Just think and answer as I really want to get this right. Because muslims should learn the akhlaq and the ways in which they can secure there relationships.
  15. Salaam Brother, Coming to the problems you raised. This is a serious problem and we must think of it's cause and then only it can be fixed. Reason why marriage system as a whole amongst the muslims is failing has several reasons: 1. Marriages are made complicated by adding rituals which have no historical or moral or spiritual value. 2. Match-making is full of extremely vague and baseless ideas which never help in marriage. Unlike what Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) has advices to focus on the faith of person, people give more priority to family background, money, personality, color and appearance etc. If they had followed what was told by the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), the problem would have been resolved. 3. Spending excessive money on marriages. 4. Delay in marriages: Marriages should be done early. Delaying this makes it impossible for the youngsters to bear. Furthermore, they get distracted from the right path, some loose hope and stop considering to marry. 5. Mentality to get-along and adapt is missing: Couples can divorce each other on small fights as no one wants to adjust and move on. Divorce option is always on the table. Before divorcing one must think that divorce is not a solution to anything. Divorce is in Islam because it is better than death. Divorce is a forbidden act which can only be considered if relationship has no way left whatsoever to move ahead. When marriage becomes counter-productive. Solution to these problems are important to discuss. Or else, people will really (and unfortunately) adopt this fitna of marrying non-muslims. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you and protect you.
