  1. Oui, c'est vraiment. Still, that doesn't mean if we are unsure or doubtful about something that we should deny its validity. Hijab currently sends a powerful message that dressing modestly without the head covering doesn't quite do IMO. If you're talking about things like covering your feet or wrists, I agree, as it doesn't really change the image of a Muslima repping Islam. I am quite unsure about this though, so feel free to give your opposite view/evidences.
  2. Hmm, I would actually argue that connects Muslims quite a bit, especially minorities like Shias.
  3. https://www.al-islam.org/hijab-muslim-womens-dress-islamic-or-cultural-sayyid-muhammad-rizvi/quran-and-hijab Pretty solid.
  4. Exactly, its the goal. Saying that someone should abandon that goal and do a complete 180 seems pretty nonsensical to me.
  5. Ermm, that bit is in the Qur'an. The verse about telling the believing women to cover their adornments? Although there is quite a bit room for interpretation.
  6. So if someone wears makeup they should start wearing mini skirts? We could technically say the same thing about other wajibat as well (if you miss fajr, you might as well skip zuhr as well) Yeah, no. Doesn't make sense in the slightest. Each woman should do her absolute best, and the men can kindly lower their gaze or nicely remind a sister IF he thinks it will actually make a difference.
  7. Sucks. We should be unified among ourselves nonetheless, instead of relying on non-Muslims for affirmation/community.
  8. I agree with the second bit about the victim taking precautions, but what about countries like Egypt where majority of women wear hijab and the sexual assault rate is incredibly high?
  9. But why can he stop her if he feels it is necessary? Is she not capable of understanding and making her own choices? I'm not bashing a more male dominant family system (I actually like the idea) but, the concept of getting permission from your spouse as if you are a child is quite...puzzling in the current day.
  10. Basically that they find whiteness superior, and would consider a Caucasian suitor much more easily than one from Pakistan, for example.
  11. Thank you. Toronto, but their grip over the mosque is unaffected by that tbh.
  12. Asalam Alaykum all, Firstly, I accept mut'ah is a concept that exists and is valid based on my (limited) research. However, the conditions under which it is used and how....? Well, that part frankly makes me sick to my stomach. Recently, a few sex offenders were caught in my area and they were All From My Local MASJED All of the offences were related to underage (sixteen) prostitution. Up until then I had pushed the thought away, but I can't anymore. It makes my stomach turn to hear that its being used for these sorts of things or that bachelors simply do it with ahlul kitab women for one night and go on to pick themselves a lovely innocent Muhajibah. Justifications? Explanations? Similar views?
  13. Its the prioritizing culture over religion that I take issue with, but yes, it seems to be inevitable to some degree.
  14. Salam Alaykum All, Recently, the realization that my oh-so-progressive Iranian community prioritizes culture over all else has shocked and upset me. I guess I never really noticed it since the culture isn't blatantly "backwards" for lack of a better word. For example, things like early marriage (sunnah) are looked down upon, high dowries are a measure of a girls worth, and everyone is constantly trying to show off their social status! Being obviously racist towards everyone but themselves and Caucasians is another really disappointing thing as well. I feel as if there is nothing I can do to fix this, especially since the elders of the mosque rule with an iron fist (like no joke, it's kinda scary tbh). Also, I remember when I was younger, my mother let me dabble with a bit of hair dying (exotic colours and all), as she's very adamant that such things are only culturally inappropriate, not Islamically. Well, it caused quite a bit of heat within the community (I wear hijab, so amongst the females I mean). I can't understand how such a beautiful religion could have such masses of not so nice followers? Sorry for the rant and tangents, I'm not even sure if I made any sense at. Yeah, idk, I'm sick (physically and figuratively).
