    And this is why modest clothing is advised in Islam and precautions should be taken.
    @Laayla and @Carlzone are examples in maintaining modesty and being aware of loop holes in today's technological world.
    Carlzon you even cover the camera of your webcam when you are not using it. Very nice.

    Bro, the question here is that dishonest methods are being used. 
    Let's say a nonsuspecting female is dressed up in a revealing dress at a female party. Some stranger women take pics and show it to males who want to get married without asking or telling the female or her family.
    Thus female hijabis can walk around completely unaware of how many or which men out there have seen them without hijab or in revealing outfits. 
    I think that this is extremely bad akhlaaq and definitely not a way Ahlul bayt a.s would act.

    Sad thing is, if this was a mutah thread, or a thread bashing some hijab style, or something entirely useless, this thread would have 100 pages. Instead, its only earned two comments. Is that really what these honourable men deserve?

    To think about the Essence of God...NO.  God is beyond comprehension of the mind.
    To reflect on Attributes of God..Yes
    We suppose to know God through understanding of His Attributes / Names.
    To speed up the understanding of Attributes of God is to be closed to Prophet and Ahlulbayt.

    MashaAllah these men are so courageous, truly impressive and honourable. What makes them even more impressive is what they have accomplished in such poor and rough conditions. Unbelievable, MashaAllah! May Allah SWT bless them and their families and take good care of their widows and children InshaAllah.

    Thinking of things that may fall in HOW and WHEN of God make people fall in confusion and too much of it, may be into bewilderment because as is said in Ayat ul Kursi, it’s beyond our capability of understanding.
    There is a whole sub-chapter in the Book of Tawheed on the questions that are futile because they go nowhere.

    And Ali Bin Ibrahim said, ‘And in a report of Abu Al Jaroud,

    (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) regarding His (azwj) Words: and not to display their adornments except what is apparent from these [24:31], he (asws) said: ‘It is the clothes, and the Kohl, and the ring, and the Henna upon the palm, and the face. And the adornments are three – Adornment for the people, adornment for the Mahram (one outside the ambit of marriage) and adornment for the husband. As for the adornment for the people, so we have mentioned it. And as for the adornment of the Mahram, so it is the place of the neck and above it, and the bracelet and what is besides it, and the anklets and what is below it. And as for the adornment for the husband, so it is the whole body’.
    (Tafseer Al-Qummi)

    Similar ahadith are present in Al-Kafi Vol 5, book of marriage. 

    And from him, from Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Marwak Bin Ubeyd, from one of our companions,

    I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘What is Permissible for the man that he can look at the woman, if she is not a Mahram (outside the ambit of marriage)?’ He (asws) said: ‘The face, and the two feet, and the two wrists’. (Al-Kafi)

    A number of our companions, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ibn Mahboub, from Jameel Bin Darraj, from Al Fuzayl Bin Yasaar who said:
    ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (asws) about the two arms from the woman, are these two from the ornaments which Allah (azwj) Blessed and Exalted Speaks of: And they should not display their adornments except to their husbands [24:31]?’ He (asws) said: ‘Yes, and whatever is below the scarf is from the adornments, and whatever is besides the two bracelets’. (A-Kafi)

    In our culture, we allow our daughters to appear before the female family members of the man willing to marry or proposing her. In second step, after analyzing that the proposal is decent one, we can allow her to appear before the potential groom (not in private) to the extent that he can only see her face. We do not treat our daughters as they are any sort of goods made available for sale for someone that he come & view each and everything whatever he likes to see.

    I dont think dishonest methods were ever advocated in the hadiths (not sure why the other brothers here aren't clarifying this though); when it comes to women reporting about other women's features the narrations are quite clear that the lady makes a request to inspect her features for another man without any intentions being hidden. 
    In any case, the Aql (intellect) is a source of rulings besides the Quran and Hadiths and you can find comfort in Sistani's rulings which are frankly very reasonable in this regard. After all akhlaq and deen are prioritised above everything else when seeking a partner, as many hadiths emphasize. In such a framework it would be exceedingly odd for a man to just request details about a woman's beauty before anything else.

    Respected brother/sister @Carlzone
    Hope you are fine إِنْ شَاء َ اللَّه 
    Understanding Allah to our limited mind is fine there is no problem in it but you see our minds are prone to the waswaas of Shaytan.
    By understanding our nafs and by understanding bits of Prophet Mohammad(saww) O Aal(asws) e Prophet Mohammad(saww) we can gain 'maarfah' of Allah but to get to know our LORD completely is impossible as because we are limited and Allah is unlimited.
    I would highly advice you to read Quran and see the narrations by Moula Ali(asws) in understanding Allah.
    See below two breath taking videos. Imam Ali(asws) describing Allah's attributes.

    Salam, 
    I don't know if there has been a thread for Hashd Al Shaabi on here before. I haven't seen one, so I've made this thread to pay tribute to the brave men who volunteered their lives for their home country and their women and children. May they all rest in peace and enjoy paradise for eternity. The martyrs teach us many lessons, the most important being selflessness and true dignity and self respect. They deserve utmost respect, after having heard of the harrowing stories family and friends have experienced in Iraq. May Allah bless them all, and protect their families and grant them the highest ranks in Jannah.

    You can start step by step. Do what you enjoy, eat what you like of healthy foods, wear lovely clothes, take care of your body. Think kind thoughts towards yourself. Say yes to the things you like and no to the things you don't like. Don't be so fearful of what others think. Be you. 
    This takes practice but can absolutely be done. Like building muscles in the gym.
