    ...Aga Khan and his family...distorted Islam for their own purposes, and live rich lives when they have the power to do so much for those poor people in Iraq and Syria.
    Plus they claim Imamate for themselves.

    lol I was debating a Sunni brother on this topic a little while ago, I want to take it up with him again Inshallah. Thanks for putting this up so the wider Muslim community can be exposed to the righteousness and excellent character of Zurarah ibn Ayan (ra)

    وروي أن زرارة كان وسيما جسيما أبيض. وكان يخرج إلى الجمعة وعلى رأسه برنس أسود، وبين عينيه سجادة، وفي يده عصا، فيقوم له الناس سماطين ينظرون اليه لحسن هيئته، فربما رجع عن طريقه، وكان خصما جدلا لا يقوم أحد -
    It is narrated that Zurarah (ra) was handsome and white, and when he went out on Friday with a burnus (hooded cloak) on his head and a prostration mark between his eyes, and in his hand a stick, people who would give him gifts just to get a glimpse of him, and there was no competition against him.

    Mansur Bakhtiari reacted to Soldiers and Saffron in Define Happiness   
    Most people dont realize, but from my observations, what they are trying to recreate in dunya is jannah, they want endless happiness, they want many women, lots of wealth, never to be hungry, never to be sick, never to be tired. Just one fun happy moment to the next.
    They want a source of never ending happiness, something that never fails to amaze them, happiness and amazement unlimited. I believe that beyond the worldly things that brings us joy and beyond the jannah things that brings us joy, ultimately, whether we are aware or not aware of it, we seek Allah swt, the ultimate and endless and pure source of joy and love.
    Some seek him without knowing it, some seek him thru different means and some seek him directly, making everything ells fade in value.

    Mansur Bakhtiari reacted to Gaius I. Caesar in Islam and Feminism   
    Men are masculine, yes.  Men can be providers, yes. Men and women have physical and mental differences, yes.
    But you forget that both men and women are human at the core and it goes against the law of nature to be abused by either sex. Both genders have the capability to abuse each other, yes. 
    Men can and do get abused, I speak from experience but what is totally wrong is thinking that it is a sign of weakness in men. Humans don't fit in this rigid "view" of yours. If I said to my mother what you wrote here: She most certainly would have given me a hearty piece of her mind and then some. Qaim is right, your words are merely a cop-out. 
    Alhamdulillah, even though my parents weren't Muslim, I thank Allah for them, they gave me a good head on my shoulder and I am thankful that I didn't turn out like you. I wasn't impressed with your tirade about God-given rights either.
    Here's a hint: They are God-given, we must absolutely careful with our rights, they are God-given. We will be questioned on this, so you can't do whatever you want with them. 
    May Allah forgive me if I'm wrong but you are not a part of the solution but a part of the problem. As long as people have the same attitude as you, nothing will change when it comes to abuse of men and women. It's a societal ill and should be dealt with. 
    Imam Hussain (as) once said: "If you neither believe in religion nor fear the hereafter, then at least be free from tyranny and arrogance"
    Tell me, does it make sense to have people in society who are not free from tyranny and arrogance of an abusive spouse at home? Is it beneficial for society?  
    The answer for me is a resounding no, crime begins at home and it starts with abuse. After all, what's stopping these abusers from harming the rest of society? Nothing as far as I can see.

    Mansur Bakhtiari reacted to Qa'im in Churches and synagogues in the middle east   
    Wonderful work, thank you for these excerpts.
    One point that I like to make is that there are plenty of ancient Christian communities across the Middle East, such as the Copts, Assyrians, Chaldeans, and other Arab Christian communities. However, there are no ancient Muslim communities in Christendom. The Muslims of Spain and Portugal were forced out, and even their converted descendants were kicked out. The Sicilian Muslims were also removed. The Muslim civilization has a far better track record with minorities than Christendom, even in spite of modern secular acceptance of multiculturalism, which is now becoming increasingly less tolerant.

    Great blog brother, I couldn't agree more with what you said. You forgot to mention the verse that was revealed after the Battle of Hunayn. 
    Allah has helped you on many occasions including the day of Hunayn. When you were happy with the number of your men who proved to be of no help to you and the whole vast earth seemed to have no place to hide you (from your enemies) and you turned back in retreat (Surah al-Tawbah, 9:25)
    Allah was talking about Umar, abu bakr and uthman in that verse.

    I think once you get to a certain level with a language it's pretty easy to pick it up again.
    The problem with the standard to which they take you at school if you learn until the age of 16 (definitely in the UK, not sure about elsewhere), is that it's not very useful then and after some years you've forgotten most of what you had learnt.
    An hour a week of kids' time for 5 years completely wasted.

    I have always felt that every Muslim must have a good working knowledge of Arabic. But in in non-Arab countries such as the sub-continent, Iran, Turkey, Indonesia, etc. Arabic is meant mostly for those going into religious studies. The rest know almost nothing of Arabic.
    Compare that with the Jewish community - I am not talking about Israel but Jews around the world.
    A far greater proportion of Jews know Hebrew than Muslims know Arabic.
    That is sad ! Isn't it?

    Thanks for this Bro. 'Speaks' is a bit ambitious for where she is but inshallah we are getting there, certainly Arabic grammar does not scare her, so that's good. Thanks for the link, that selection looks very useful.

    Mansur Bakhtiari reacted to Hameedeh in Minimalism   
    Minimalism does not mean you have to live in a tent. Live somewhere that you can afford and you feel comfortable. Just think before you spend your money. If you save money by not buying things you don't really need, you can use that money in better ways.
    For many years I would only buy a new pair of shoes when the old ones wore out, mostly because I was poor. Now I have three pair of shoes (casual, walking and dressy) and that's enough for me. You won't find me looking at shoes to buy another pair. Not only I don't need them but looking at shoes in the store is a waste of my time.
