  1. @313_Waiter akhi what do you think of this excerpt from: ‘The Power of Prayer: Channeling Brain Waves Through Dhikr by Ahmed Hulusi (hafidullah). Man, in respect to his essence, has been created with the attributes of Allah and subsists with the existence in HIm. Man is alive because of the Hayy quality of Allah and has knowledge because of the Aleem quality of Allah. Man is able to put things into action with the quality of will deriving from Allah’s name Mureed. Thus, to the extent to which man is able to manifest the meanings of these Names, which are all present within his
  2. We shouldn’t just assume that Allah is going to reject the salah of a sincere believer who is young and doing the best one can do in such a situation.
  3. There are some whom the Nabi (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) made explicit statements that they would achieve jannah. As for many of us we won’t know. This makes sense because we can be believers today and tomorrow we may cover up the truth (we seek refuge with Allah from such a thing). as far as hope and fear, I believe taqwa of Allah or fear is to be mindful of Allah. We want to please Allah or at least that should be our goal. With that said, a Muslim may have hope in the mercy and fear of the wrath but ultimately the seeker on the journey wishes to attain the state of love for Allah. T
  4. wa alaikum salam wa rahmatullah, I don't have any advice, but just wanted to say I have the same struggle. I don't even really celebrate my own birthday. I do not know the root as to why I don't, I think I just get too caught up in the adult life. I have struggled in the past as well with finances and now am doing well for myself Alhamdulilah, yet this hasn't changed holidays for me. Although I do from time to time spoil myself with watches, shoes etc... Perhaps if I had kids it would make it easier to enjoy holidays. Allahu alim.
  5. One of the strange things I find in Sunnism is since they try to sanctify all the sahaba, they end up making excuses for them by saying they were only exercising their ijtihad. It is said that both Aisha and Muawiya were just making ijtihad and even tho they were wrong, they will still be rewarded for their ijtihad. This to be me is a strange concept. Just imagine an example where I am in Saudi and decide to lead a rebellion. I would be casted away as a khariji, yet Muawiya and Aisha can make a blunder in their ijtihad, cause thousands to die and they are still rewarded?
  6. @313_Waiter your boy has some reading to do this weekend
  7. Palestinians and Muslims in general should not affiliate themselves with BLM. Blm is more of a feminist lgbtq movement that provides funding for democrats. They are marxists and no Muslim should be involved with such a corrupt ideology. May Allah expose BLM for what they are. They do not care about black fathers.
  8. The Muhammadin Light is a very interesting teaching found in both Sunni and Shi'i traditions. Look it up. I think to some extent we also share in the light, but even more so the prophets (alayhum salam).
  9. Being mixed doesn't mean you're not white. I have german/Mexica blood. My Mexican side is a blending of white spanish with aztec/mexica. My complexion is white. Now a days people are too offended by identifying as white or non-white or this or that. To me it's silly. If someone told you to say you're white, sure that may be offensive. I wouldn't lose sleep over it.
  10. Wa alaikum salam, listen to Patrice O’Neal (rahimahullah) on YouTube look up the black Phillip show. You will learn relationships suck lol
  11. Reminds of when the US military attacked al-jazeera and other media outlets in Iraq. Media can be used to control people and portray the truth. These days powers that be want to take out any divergent opinions. It is intelligent indeed, but ethically, it is absurd. https://www.rt.com/news/523629-gaza-alshourouk-tower-collapse-video/
  12. @313_Waiter on another note I just ordered 'The Study Qur'an'. I am looking forward to see the combined tafasir from classical sunni, sufi and Shi'a. For the more 'mystic' verses it seems to rely upon the Sufi and irfani teachings.
