  1. Maybe the idea of a justifiable reason is to be subjective as there are many reasons why a woman would need to say no. There could never be a finite list. If there was, everything that was not listed could be viewed as acceptable. A legitimate reason for saying no could be fear that her husband is angry and out of control and will most likely hurt her or that he is presently hurting her as in forcing himself on her. That would be justifiable. A woman does not need to remain where she is being treated unjustly and being injured. A completely different legitimate reason might be that he has an active or not treated STD for example and she fears for her health or even perhaps her unborn child's health. There are more reasons to say no other than the stated ones of sick and having menses. Why this has to be seen as such a “complicated” issue is ridiculous. You don't cause harm to your wife.
  2. Yes, this is so. This proven with the umbrella (which means to shade). The umbrella was invented more than 4,000 years ago and was used to shade the upper class from the sun and skin darkening and like you say to avoid the look of low caste workers in the sun. There is evidence of umbrellas in the ancient art of Egypt, Assyria, Greece, and China. The umbrella was only used to protect from rain in the last few hundred years by European.
  3. LOL. I am not reading a book lool. I thought you might know as you were quoting him.
  4. But why is he living in Switzerland? Why is he not living in Iran?
  5. Why is he living in Switzerland?
  6. I am still confused. Is your example analogy of white people? or example of yourself? You did not answer my questions. You avoided.
  7. You would have been Ok in watching a person die in front of you rather than save them if you able if they are white? Is it different for white Muslim? What about white non Muslim?
  8. I think it said that women are to have custody of children up to age 2 except for if they remarried during those first two years.
  9. Women live longer than men. That is a proven fact. Their bodies last longer. Women don't suffer more mental illness, they are just much more likely to go for help and become part of the recorded statistics. So it makes sense that in statistics that can be more accurately recorded: "In 2013, 6,233 suicides were recorded in the UK for people aged 15 and older. Of these, 78% were male and 22% were female." https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/statistics But this is a silly argument as both men and women have strengths in their own way and both men and women and the ummah are stronger when all are working together. But there is no doubt that women are strong. Women are sometimes brainwashed at puberty to think that they are weak and needy, and sadly you are playing into this falsehood which is very sad. Oh..And jihad was not just on the battlefield.
  10. That is a very good depiction of a flooded neighbourhood. Scary but very good
  11. A woman can put almost anything in her marriage contract and he has the right to agree or to not agree. If he agrees, and she has said she wants the right of divorce if he remarries, he is legally bound to follow through on his agreement. If he does not tell her and keeps it secret, this is on him as he has agreed to divorce her if he does this. Very clear. No grey at all.
  12. All people should be treated with kindness. The meaning often depends on context and it is difficult to understand something from just one line. Such as In Nahj al-Balaghah when Imam Ai (as) gave the sermon on the deficiencies of women and was to have said: "O people! Women are deficient in faith, deficient in shares, and deficient in intellect" Our role models in Islam start with Khadija (as) and then onwards. These women were not delicate flowers. They were loyal, strong, confident and able to their death.
  13. There was a young woman who was stoned to death for adultery by her father in Syria under Daesh, and her father helped them. They encourage the family to be involved.
  14. Look up penalty for adultery in Sharia. Penalty for married and penalty for unmarried.
  15. That is a sad your daughter does not know her father. I wish you and her the best and am glad she has you and your husband. Not all little ones are so blessed. I was not justifying the baby less than 2 taken away but was trying to figure out the reason in Islam to be taken from her mother if she has another husband as it seems to be a strange ruling. Anyway, like yours, it seems most men do not want responsibility of a small child so would not take them.
  16. LOL. What women were delicate flowers?
  17. It might be because the child who is under two could become confused as to who their real father is and so is sent to the biological fathers home.
  18. A lot of women, who do not work outside the home, have no access to money. I am sure many would like to have option to pay.
  19. Of course. ? So you extend that to all disasters? I have never read that.
  20. Where does it say these are punishments?
  21. What about the many earthquakes killing poor people in Pakistan and Iran?
  22. Slavery today: Oh LOL - read it wrong Slavery is and was everywhere. North African arabs were most interested in European slaves. Just looked it up 1.25 million enslaved from Europe. Still slavery today in the west and east: https://www.freetheslaves.net/about-slavery/slavery-today/ Pakistan is the worst: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_Pakistan
  23. That won't save you lol. Well over million gori skinned blue eyed European slaves were captured along European coast all way up to Iceland.
