  1. my great grandparents were born on reservations my great grandfather was killed for having long "native american" hair he refused to cut.
  2. I'm 1/4 cherokee. my white ancestors genocided my native ancestors and and modern white people (in my area) discriminate against me heavily. being native american is something that makes my hole family viewed as different by everyone including the rest of my family and is a major part in how I identify them. IF white people treated me better i would probably Identify with them more.
  3. I'm a white/native american and Identify with my Cherokee ancestry mostly. I've dated as a non religious person prior to reverting and have never been with a native american. So every relationship I've been in was interracial. The Only Natives I know are distant relatives (cousins). Because I'm white passing meaning I look more white than native white women are the easiest thing for me to get. As a revert I'm probably not going to be with someone with any common racial ancestry. How do you feel about it, Most people in my area disagree that its acceptible to the point that they have tried to f
  4. I previously ask a question about tribal tattoos and didn't get a direct answer. I'm 1/4 cherokee and i want to take part in some of my peoples cultural practices how far in general can i go for instance I wanted to carve a new sacred pipe (peace pipe) thats suppose to be blessed with sage for the non federally recognized tribe I belong to and be a pipe bearer (one how keeps a sacred pipe in there home). as for the tattoo it would be haida style tribal witch is traditional native american art I was wishy washy about keeping my tattoos but it seems there to difficult to remove so the poorly don
  5. Other than Dearborn MI. where are the best places to live for an american muslim. I'm considering Seattle WA., Portland OR., and Denver CO as well as neighboring towns.
  6. I have severe ptsd. My psychiatrist suggested drinking and can't prescribe any thing else strong enough, but thats obviously out of the question. what do you suggest?
  7. What are the main differences between each movement and how do you feel about each. I'm a moderate conservative and I don't know much about the other movements I've considered some mild reform in the past but don't think its a good idea to change Islam unless there is evidence that it is permissible to do so and my understanding is that inovation is haram.
  8. I'm considering becoming a reformist. what do you think? I'm interested primarily in Islamic feminism which I personally support. One of the problems I have with the general public is that people think Islam is sexist. Most people have a problem with requiring women to wear hijab and that it's stated that a woman's testimony is half that of a mans. While I agree that hijab is required I also feel that a woman has a right to her own beliefs about the issue and should be aloud to to take it off. I don't understand how a womans testimony is less than a mans and I've read in Islamic states like Sa
  9. Im sorry I only speak english Is there any way to get english translation, I've recently moved far away from body modifacation and decided to remove my tattoos and piercings
  10. the artist made big mistakes on purpose because I told him im Muslim. the worst a lazer will do is leave a scar.
  11. I've lost a woman I had a mutah with that was suppose to turn into a permanent marraige. I hurt all day. I live on disability for severe ptsd thats due to some things that happened when I first converted and all I want is my wife back that basically vanished almost immediately after she agreed to enter a mutah with me. I'm all thats left of the people I converted with and I miss them. My family has ask me to leave Islam repeatedly and sometimes I think about it hard. I want out of the situation completely and am planning to move somewhere new theres a mosque soon but there's a good chance I'll
  12. I believe ear piercings are halal for men. Men have worn them alongside women since there invention And I don't consider them a womans adornment. How ever guaging or stretching ears looks marook at best. The piercing is stretched to accept a plug or tunnel. The lob is damaged by my standard and it is practiced by tribal peoples as a pagan tradition, so it damages the body and is imitating the kafir here are some examples at https://duckduckgo.com/?q=guaged+ears&t=canonical&iax=images&ia=images.
  13. It's just a crecent moon and star, it's not the Qur'an or hadith. I'm going to get a lazer online for $180 to remove it myself.
  14. I actually did I was engaged to a Christian woman when I got them but she backed out of marrying me. I don't really want to remove them I just don't want to be mistreated because of it. A woman that has a problem with it is wrong for me. I'm worried I won't find the wright the right one. will It be difficult to find a woman that at is least is neutral to tattoos the Qur'an teaches not to make impermissible what Allah has made permissible.
  15. I'm a conservative and interested in finding a devout conservative wife. The problem is I have tattoos. How will I be treated by other conservatives, and will I have a difficult time finding a woman for marriage? I'm a revert and in an area where I don't have any kind of Muslim community or presence; so I have no idea how people are going to react when I do eventually move and find a mosque. I'm devout and am afraid of being rejected by other Muslims. My tattoos are religious (they indicate that I'm Muslim) and political How hard will be to find a woman that accepts me with tattoos? I know th
  16. If there is no actual gold in it is it permissible. I'm talking about stainless steal and silver painted yellow.
  17. it's my understanding that men are encouraged to pierce there that it's actually mustahabb, but what about gauged (stretched) piercings. gauged ears have been stretched to accept a tunnel ring that allows you to look the the center of the piercing. This is practiced by some tribal people in Africa I'm concerned ti may be immitating the kafir. mine are small enough to shrink to normal size
  18. I'm a conservative with visible tattoos and pierced ears. How will I be treated by the rest of the conservative population? Im planning on lazering my tattoos but I also may get more depending on how people feel about it. I'm concerned I'll have a problem finding a conservative wife or that my appearance will be a problem for her family.
  19. you can buy your own lazer cheap but its more painful than getting the tattoo to start with
  20. I have tattoos and have actually tried to get an apprenticeship to become a tattoo artist I own tattoo equipment but I'm becoming more devout and am considering becoming an Imam. what do you think about removal I have a medium and a large tattoo on my arm. I know there halal but how are they viewed by the majority of Shia I don't have a mosque to attend and am not connected to anyone directly in the Muslim community this website is my only connection to the Muslim community in general.
  21. I've become more conservative and need some new clothes. Shukr Islamic clothing at www.shukronline.com offers a lot but is expensive. where can I get some modest clothing in the us. Im looking for a suit and some casual wear.
  22. angels have limited free will in Shia Islam so can they fall. If so have any ever fallen and what would happen to them if they do fall?
  23. It's wajib to choose a marja. who are the most popular and why?
