  1. Couldn't have said it better myself. @islamicmusicI felt angered just reading about what happened. I think brother @Abu Hadi provided a great response. If it was me though, I would definitely have not left the area without using my words in the most harshest (but also dignified) of ways to make them at least tear up, if not feel like crąp from the inside. Note: this post only applies to the group of university students.
  2. https://www.al-islam.org/youth-and-spouse-selection-ali-akbar-mazaheri Chapter 5-7^
  3. Maybe we can find the answer in this book: https://al-m.ca/bookstore/ Business Ethics in Islam by Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi Business Ethics in Islam begins with a discussion on the relationship of human beings with this world, with their Creator, and their personal attitude towards time, money, affluence, and charity. The link between human efforts and Divine decree in seeking sustenance is explored along with the role of prayer (Du'a) and reliance on God (tawakkul) in pursuit of wealth. Then it moves on to describe their interactions with fellow human beings while they go about pursuing material blessings: customers, employees, and business partners. Issues of truthfulness, honesty, and regard for the well-being of all, Muslims and non Muslims, is also discussed. This is followed by an overview of the types of businesses and trades which are considered legitimate or otherwise in Islam. Issues of intoxicant drinks, animal products, and money related issues (interest [riba], bank activities, mutual funds, stock markets, and other trading instruments) is discussed. Finally, it presents the challenges that Muslims generally face while working in the West: dress code, hijab and beard issues, religious holidays, daily and Friday prayers, office social events, etc. Found the book for free on Al-islam.org: https://www.al-islam.org/islamic-business-ethics-sayyid-muhammad-rizvi
  4. Download the "Ramadhan Guide pdf" near the bottom of the page, and go to page 7 in that: https://al-m.ca/ramadhan/
  5. Very wrong. Merely having good character isn't enough. The person should not be negligent of their obligations to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). They should be a person of taqwa. If you however do see a really good match in a non-hijabi, I would seriously investigate why the person doesn't wear hijab. Is it due to feminist/liberal influences? Is it for impressing people /attention-seeking? Or is it simply because the girl was never taught the rules, and if she was taught, she would wear it? Peronally, I would want to marry a hijabi. Anyway, I highly suggest you read this: https://www.al-islam.org/youth-and-spouse-selection-ali-akbar-mazaheri/chapter-five-criteria-spouse-selection
  6. Read this: https://www.al-islam.org/youth-and-spouse-selection-ali-akbar-mazaheri

  8. Maybe just stick to reading a page (only one side of a physical sheet) a day followed by the translation. Also, I highly suggest reading in physical books, it's just a lot more enjoyable. There's a really nice english translation by Ali Quli Qarai on Amazon.
  9. Sorry you had to go through that brother. I feel there's a lot I could say, but this short book here will do a much better job at telling you what you need to know: https://www.al-islam.org/youth-and-spouse-selection-ali-akbar-mazaheri I believe chapter 5 and onwards will be of great importance to you, but I suggest just reading the whole thing as it's not too long and filled with wisdom that can really save people's lives.
  10. I meant to also inlcude chapter 5 as well. Make sure to read that. @Meedy
  11. Habibi, do yourself a favor and please read chapter 6 and 7: https://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&client=ms-android-samsung-rev2&source=android-browser&q=youth+and+spouse+selection InshaAllah you will find the guidance you're looking for.
