  1. Thank you brother, and for my part, I am sorry for being an [edit] to you.
  2. Every person should defend Muslims women's right. For my part, it doesn't matter what their faith is. I believe it is incumbent on every good person to protect each other and those who can't protect or defend themselves. I also think this segues nicely into another thread that got virtually no traffic,
  3. I was part of a small discussion that talked about the direction tech companies are going and someone said, Apple isn't really a tech company anymore, but a fashion company. I can't remember the gent's name, but he's not lying.
  4. @Ali~J & @Aragaia thank you brothers. I have much to ponder, study, and reflect on.
  5. Thank you for this and nope from opposite sides of the world from each other. After reading through this it looks like I am hell bound.
  6. These answers seem crazy to me. My father was physically and mentally abusive and as soon as I could physically stop him I did. One of the happiest days of my life was when my Mother (may Allah bless and keep her) divorce him and kick him out. From the moment he was removed life got better in every conceivable way. It's hard for me to bring what everyone is saying together with Allah the ever merciful and ever just. To me it's like trying to put a round peg in a square hole. Can some please give a Qua'rnic or Hadith source? I mean I can understand (not really) the advice coming from a cultural or historical perspective, but man. It just doesn't seem to jive with me. I am truly not trying to start trouble, just learn.
  7. My apologies if I offended, it truly wasn't my goal, To be honest I don't know really anything about the Gent you mentioned as your thread was what made me aware of him. However, it did remind of me another person who is making similar claims in Russia. It was just an interesting coincidence I thought I would share. Sorry if I derailed the conversation or gave offense
  8. I mean no offense by this, but this reminds of that Russian cat named Vissario who says he is Isa (PB) Description from Wikipedia, "Vissarion claims to be a reincarnated Christ. He teaches reincarnation, vegetarianism, and apocalypse. On 18 August 1990, when he was 29, Vissarion claims that he had a revelation that he was the reincarnation of Christ. He first spoke publicly in Minusinsk on 18 August 1991. He founded the "Church of the Last Testament" (Церковь Последнего Завета Tserkov Poslednego Zaveta), also known as "Community of Unified Faith"." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vissarion?wprov=sfla1
  9. Please forgive this question, but I want to make sure I understand this right, The reason there are 12 Imans is because of the use of 12 historically in our faith, like in the examples given in the past few comments? Also are the Hadiths that, @Ethics Quoted the main Hadiths used for this or is there more? Please know that I am in no way trying to be a smart mouth or fool. Just trying to find all the puzzle pieces.
  10. Sorry you haven't gotten any replies yet. If you want I am happy to email my instructor and ask if he wouldn't mind writing something up that I could post for you.
  11. Just watched Little Mosque on the Prairie. What a brilliant show that ended too soon. I wish there was a real life version of this near my house in the PNW. Little Mosque in the Rainforest maybe....
  12. Thank you for this and that's a brilliant way to phrase it.
  13. I think it is also important to integrate the brain's actual development into the conversation of being mature enough to marry. From the most recent litertaure, it seems that our brains don't stop maturing until the mid-twenties. Please understand I am not saying one thing or another, but I do think it adds another dimension to this debate.

  14. My God, the amount of arrogance, condescension, and assumptions in this is astounding. Well done. Please have no fear of sounding rude brother. After being on this site for a while and seeing how you have responded to other people and now reading this I can honestly say, I wouldn't give a whores promise for your thoughts on this or really any other matter. No offense intended brother.
