    Is circumcision required for male reverts?

    Then I shall burn in hellfire for not mutilating my genitals as a man's opinion has told me to do - in your opinion. Allah saw is above this barbaric perverted superstition and you know it, it has absolutely no purpose other than to mislead people and to wreck their genitals for life.

    Circumcision, like Castration is one of the evil Satanic things that are an insult to intellect, knowledge, modesty and selflessness. They are a direct violation of Allah's creation, period. There is no 'extra skin', the penis is born the way it is made. Circumcision is satanic pagan beliefs used to pervert Allah's religion, it's pure evil.

    Cutting hair or nails is by far a false equivalence. A closer equivalence would be cutting off the tip of your nose, ear or even your eyelids. Its completely an evil thing to force on someone, as I stated before and is an act of Shaitan, an insult to Allah. Also, hair and nails grow back, like earwax etc a foreskin doesn't.

    Is circumcision required for male reverts?

    Allah created us perfectly, circumcision is a Pagan perversion from Shaitan. May I burn in hell if I buy into the idea that Allah made a mistake by giving me a foreskin, I vehemently deny circumcision wholeheartedly. I know it's an offensive thing to say (to those who are religiously sensitive to affirmative opposition to it) but I stand by it, I believe circumcision in the Tanakh is one of the aspects that were changed since the prophethood of Moses pbuh (one of the things written into the Torah later). It's a tremendous lie of Shaitan to deceive the masses into believing that Allah made a mistake by giving males a foreskin, to assert a necessity to mutilate genitals because Allah "did it wrong", which inevitably leads down the road of Kufr if you take it with any more than a grain of salt.
  5. Interesting. So your name is a "new testament" name right? (which would probably be Greek, if I remember correctly)
  6. I agree, as a convert myself. If someone feels they are called to change their name like that, then all the best to them but I see no use, well legally. Of course, I do use pseudonyms on the internet and with my art but it's sort of a different area of 'name' though.

    Why do sunni hates shia

    Propaganda is really what it stems from and for much of it there is a lot of non-education of Islamic history. Not all Sunnis hate Shias (or vice versa) but the animosity is definitely there throughout history (and currently)

    How to increase fear of Allah (SWT) ?

    Fear is awareness/consciousness, understanding and an attempt to comprehension. It's not being afraid of in an antagonistic sense. When we being to truly "fear" Allah saw, we exercise our Irfan. "Fearing" Allah, is taking the step between blindly believing in Allah and knowing Allah (to the limited extent that a human can). However, in the other sense, yes, we should be very mindful and see the true seriousness of Heaven and Hell and not take either lightly.

    I have a believing/practicing Monotheist Jewish friend and he has expressed much frustration at this to me before and as a non-Jew outsider, I find it to be one of the strangest of the wide-spread religions for it's very hold on the tribal identity. There are some small comparisons on the fringe of Shi'ism that are individual small religions (like Yezidis and Druze etc, both of which I have respect for) but really, Judaism is the only religion of it's kind that is surrounded by such a strange focus on a tribal aspect (not to get into the theology of the Tanakh following Moses). Anyway, so my Jewish friend has said to me many times that even though he (and them generally, although not always the case) is very tolerant, it is a very disheartening state that most "Jews" these days are Atheists and don't practice the religion. As for Zionists, well they're doing their work to defile the religion of Moses and the symbols associated with Judaism (star of David) as much as possible, political corruption to the max in the name of Jewish culture

    Is it haram to be a rapper and listen to music

    Forget about the musical notes, it's about the lyrics and the intent behind the lyrics. A proper lyricist is a poet in many ways, so through the lens of art, the person assessing what lyrics are and aren't Haram needs to suspend judgement and look at the lyrical content in it's larger contents within the song, rather than any specific single thing that might raise an eyebrow.

    Music Thread

    Because I can't find one, I'll start one. Here is a great video on a genre of music that is dear to me. youtube.com/watch?v=MaJF9nxVhUU

    Masturbation is killing me

    The issue of masturbation (for secular people who get addicted and fed up with it, even when they're not morally opposed to it) is one of the mind. A person, whether male or female, must learn self-discipline in many, many areas. Outside of any specific religion or culture, the notion of the individual taking control (or the reins) over the self on any number of things one may face in life, is a critical thing. Self-discipline, self-restraint, knowing what your "I" is, becoming a person who isn't alien to his/her own thoughts and involuntary actions - becoming someone who is mentally, emotionally and spiritually strong. @King is correct here, that even in the face of religious conviction, this is something that people still do and choose to lie to themselves about. It and of itself is a natural process of the sexually coming of age, it's something every normal man and woman will know the emotional and psychological feelings that are caused. The thing here to emphasize however, is not to take a black-and-white fundimentalist view of religiosity and look at it from a shallow perspective of "haram vs the morally righteous" when there is more here at play and more to learn wisdom from. Control over the self, the ego and carnal desires is something that Islam emphasizes just like Judaism as much as Buddhism etc. There is something incredibly liberating once you get yourself to the point where lustful thoughts are few and brief. You are able to focus on the deeply spiritual things and gain more knowledge of things and experience things in your consciousness that you perhaps never realized you could. Try to be mindful about things, try to seek your own mind analytically and find the routes of your problems. One you exercise this kind of understanding, you are able to put it to use. The thing is less about the act itself, than being about what state your mind, body, soul and heart become when it comes to everything in your daily life - and how it can (in it's worst) cause massive friction within yourself. This conversely will affect your deen, and your connection with Allah saw - but must fundamentally be understood between the religious and secular worldviews as a shared problem that both face. Lust itself can be heaven and hell depending on the context. As for sex itself, once you're married, having as much sex as you both desire shouldn't be any issue.

    Maintaining Modesty w/ Current Tech

    Basically with current technology, avoid putting your identity anywhere that isn't compulsory and avoid sites that capitalize off your data (like facebook, google, amazon etc). I've no interest in 'social media' myself though and most of my computer time is used in relation to intellectual stuff rather than entertainment.

    Maintaining Modesty w/ Current Tech

    Scrap chrome altogether, that's google. Google track ALL of your data. Switch to something like brave or waterfox and install plugins that block any google/facebook etc scripts. Also, if you have money buy a mail account from a trusted private site that isn't google or yahoo etc As for incognito mode (again, google), it only hides stuff from your browsing history. Nothing else.

    Burning Man

    Whilst there are the delinquent types (and leaving them out)......this topic is highly interesting. Something many people don't realize, is this is an art festival and one that evolves organically growing tropes and refining them via the people involved (not anything organised prior). For the people involved, they create a kind of temporal mini-society and super-reality within the grounds of the deserts they occupy. Out of freedom and chaotic structures, evolves a kind of bizarre order. Along with this, in the art aspect, people bring along massive sculptures and create art at the place itself, people live/breath art during the festival. Every act becomes art and self-aware. Everything is crowned, or caped off with the burning of the man itself. I don't think I'd term it a "religion", but I would however term it a "microworld" or "macrospace". Within the microworld, microscopic religions/traditions grow and die within their temporal contexts, along with it's fashions and forms of amusement.
