  2. I dont think there is a problem as the addition marriage is not registered under common law. It is against the law to have additional registered marriage. It is a law without meaning as there are so many common law marriages and there is no law against more than one common law marriage. For those polygamist marriages that are supported by the state (welfare), they get larger benefits if the women register as single. That is how many polygamy marriages in the west are financed. The rates would go down if they were recognized as one large family.

  4. It is not complicated. Slavery in Islam is halal. There has been no change.

    Ate/Eating/Will Eat?

    Someone wants to stop your thread. Strange manner of communication though. :wacko:
  6. Sounds like they are going in to meet sexual needs. Not quite sure why there is a problem Islamically though as as long as they recognize idaah, this is just mutah.
  7. OP - Do you have a source for this picture?
  8. At least you are equal opportunity racist :!!!: "Adolf Hitler elaborated many reasons to hate the jewish people. I think rather fondly as for my own reflection on the notion of so many jewish people getting killed off at once, Thank God."
  9. This would assume that the father owns his daughter's vulva. If this were a purchase of vulva rights, it could be being purchased from the woman.
  10. Celebrate if you wish, just don't try to incorporate it into Islam it and expect Muslims to blindly accept this. Or incorporate pagan festivals it into significant Islamic events. As Christians do with their holy days.
  11. That is the comment that Christians give for celebrating their holy days which are actually pagan in origin.
  12. Six men are in custody and have "confessed". This might be a convenience arrest, which brings about another problem of choosing some of the poor who cannot afford legal counsel, in the interest in getting a fast resolution to suppress global condemnation.
  13. Where did the money go? From: http://hittingbedrock.blogspot.ca/2007/09/mother-teresa-and-money.html Fact: Mother Teresa controlled lots and lots of money. How much? Well, it's hard to say for certain. Unless I've missed something, the finances of the Missionaries of Charity remain undisclosed and unaudited. But it was (and remains) a lot of money. Says Susan Shields, former Missionary of Charity: As a Missionary of Charity, I was assigned to record donations and write the thank-you letters. The money arrived at a frantic rate. The mail carrier often delivered the letters in sacks. We wrote receipts for checks of $50,000 and more on a regular basis. Sometimes a donor would call up and ask if we had received his check, expecting us to remember it readily because it was so large. How could we say that we could not recall it because we had received so many that were even larger?Shields doesn't suggest how much that might add up to, but Hitchens has it that there were at least $50 million in the New York bank account of the Missionaries of Charity, and figures that, this being but a part of the organization's wealth, there must be several times more all told. So let's place the MoC's wealth in the 9-10 figure range. Now, it would not be correct to say that all this money belonged to Teresa. I take it that she herself owned next to nothing. I'm just saying that she controlled this money. It didn't belong to her personally, but, if she'd really wanted, she could have used it, on behalf of her organization, to buy all sorts of medicines, pay all sorts of trained medical personnel, and maybe even keep her facilities stocked with clean new needles on a regular basis. You may be able to guess what's coming up next. Fact: Mother Teresa used only a tiny fraction of that money to improve the lives of the sick and the poor Shields continues: We received touching letters from people, sometimes apparently poor themselves, who were making sacrifices to send us a little money for the starving people in Africa, the flood victims in Bangladesh, or the poor children in India. Most of the money sat in our bank accounts. [...] The donations rolled in and were deposited in the bank, but they had no effect on our ascetic lives and very little effect on the lives of the poor we were trying to help.Well, who cares about the lives of the nuns: they got what they signed up for, right? That bit about the poor, though, that's a little worrisome. Here are some examples of how the MoC failed to spend its money. Shields gives one: in Haiti, "the sisters reused needles until they became blunt". Out of the MoC's bloated bank accounts, no money could be spared for new needles. Likewise, in an article in the British Medical Journal (a review of Hitchens' book), Mary Loudon reports visiting the MoC's facilities and seeing "syringes run under cold water and reused, aspirin given to those with terminal cancer, and cold baths given to everyone". No money for oncological care beyond aspirin, no money for hot water, and, again, no money for new syringes, or even proper sterilization for old ones. And in an article in the Lancet (9/17/94, Issue 8925), Robin Fox reports having visited the Home for the Dying in Kolkata, and describes the medical care there as "haphazard": no trained medical personnel are present unless some happen to drop by to volunteer their time, and the sisters themselves are not given any proper training in medical care. "How about simple algorithms that might help the sisters and volunteers distinguish the curable from the incurable? Again no." Out of the millions or billions, not enough for the salary of a single Kolkata doctor, or any other way of ensuring minimally consistent medical care.
  14. LOL no difference, but in many ways it often seems reverts are "higher" than born Muslims.
  15. They should be held legally accountable and be put away from public. How is it a death penalty though? Is there a death penalty for theft in shariah?
  16. If you dont feel good about this, you need to end it.
  17. You are finding out about her. Tell her you find it hard to listen to her. or say nothing and wait till she stops. See if she notices that you are not talking.

  19. Read the whole thread and still dont know if it is permitted to hold your wife's hand in public.
  20. Bahrani census 2010 is The citizen population is 99.8% Muslim, although the Muslim proportion falls to 70.2% when the non-national population is included. In Bahrain, I would feel safer living next to a church than a hardline Sunni mosque.
