  1. I think at least Muslims need to understand that the whole 'nine year old wife' thing and the accusation (false accusation according to our scholars) that Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) married a nine year old girl is nothing but an attempt to juxtapose modern Western social norms onto Islam in order to slander the religion. If the public in general doesn't understand this, at least Muslims should.
  2. The purpose of Mulk Al Yamin and making her into someone in his care and not letting her go back to the enemy was a war strategy that is used by many militaries but in Islam it was done in a humane way. She cannot leave and go back because she will give the enemy information about the Muslim army, secret information that they can use against the Muslims. She is to stay with until the war is over and he must take care of her. Feed her, cloth her, etc. Because she will be living with him, she is considered his wife, and he has to marry her in the usual way and then she is his wife, so... In Islam, sexual intercourse is not allowed outside of marriage, period. A man being married to multiple women is allowed, as most people already know. Since marriage requires consent, if she refuses to give her consent and marry him then I'm not sure what happens. There is not much fiqh on this since this has not been an issue for over 1000 years.
  3. I was going to say the other part of the issue is constant and relentless promotion of consumerism amoung the poor and middle class. At the same time, this is the part that a person can control. They can't control the system (first post) but they can control what they spend their money on and not waste it on things which will not help them either in this life or the next. This promotion of consumerism is meant to keep the poor poor because any money they manage to get they will waste and they will never become owners or generate passive income so the rich will never have competition in that sense.
  4. The wealth inequality in America is strengthened and perpetuated by riba (interest), and this is the main reason the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, and this is increasing and I think there will be a revolution at some point, although I'm not sure when. Poor people in this country stay poor because when they want to do basic things, like buy a house or a car (something everyone needs), they need to borrow money with interest. So a house that they buy for $100,000 ends up costing them more than $200,000 after they pay the interest, and this is actually a good interest rate (3 to 5%) which isn't really available now. So they pay more, while this $100,000 goes to rich people who get this money for doing nothing while the poor person has to work 40,50,60 hours a week for decades just to pay this off. The rich person can then take this extra $100,000 which they don't need to live (while the poor person needs all their money to pay their basic expenses) and use it to make even more money. They buy assets like real estate, stocks, etc which all earn them even more money on top of the money they already have. The US, as a country, is set up in a way for rich people to earn the maximum amount from their investments (i.e. what they own) and to pay the minimum amount in taxes. Millionaires and billionaires pay a much, much smaller percentage of their income in taxes vs poor people. The people worst off are the middle class (those earning from $75,000 to $200,000 per year). They are taxed the most heavily, most paying about 34% of their income in taxes, while getting no social benefits, i.e. government benefits. They are not wealthy enough to hire expensive accountants who can show them how to pay almost no taxes. It is a system based on cheating, where the ones who cheat the most benefit the most and those who don't cheat get nothing. This is the definition of injustice. The only reason the US is the richest country in the world is because the system is set up for rich people to move their capital into the US economy in order to benefit themselves and the US government. The regular people in the US get no benefit from this money.
  5. 1. Mulk Al Yamin are women who are captured on the battlefield in a war that is declared by a Masoom (Prophet or Masoom Imam) 2. This is not really an issue at the present time, not an Islamic issue, because slavery is against the law in every country in the world (I think except maybe two small countries in Africa) and we are bound to follow the law of the country we live in unless that law directly contradicts Islam, and this law doesn't since it is not wajib to own slaves and not haram to not own slaves. 3. At the time of Prophets and Imams a women who was not married and not in the care of her father and family had no protection in society. She was almost certain to be abused in a severe way. There was no police force or laws like we have today. This was a similar situation for a man. If a man didn't have a tribe to protect him, he was an outcast, likely to be abused and eventually die a horrible death. That is how the society was at that time. Slavery was a way for people who found themselves in that situation to have some sort of protection. They were bound to obey their master, but their master also protected them. Their is aklaq that needs to be followed with regards to slaves. The Prophets and the Imams had slaves, but they treated them very well, like their family, taught them, and then freed them after the slaves had some means to earn a living or in the case of a women have the protection of a husband. The equivalent today would be people who are homeless / indigent / abandoned by their families. These were the people the Prophet and Imams helped to 'get on their feet'. It wasn't slavery like what was practiced in the US and some other places where the Masters considered the slaves their property, not human beings, and they could do whatever they wanted with them. The Prophets and Imams treated them like they treated their own family. They ate what their family ate, they dressed in the cloths their family dressed in. 4. In Islam, the rules of war are that someone is captured on the battlefield, the war is declared by a masoom, and that person is the enemy fighting against the muslims, whether they are carrying a weapon or assisting on the battlefield, they are Mulk Al Yamin, i.e. a slave. It is not allowed to go after people who are fleeing or to go into areas which are not part of the battle to capture women and make them Mulk Al Yamin, even if they are from the enemy and support them. The key terms here is 'on the battlefield' i.e. where the fighting is taking place at the time.
  6. Salam. Once you find a marjaa you want to follow, you should read their book of jurisprudence (all of them have one) from cover to cover and try to follow as much as you can all of their rulings regarding the wajib and haram. For example the daily prayers. 99% of the rules for the daily prayers are the same but there is slight differences between marjaa. So you are obligated to follow the rules of the marjaa you follow. For example, one of the differences is concerning doubts as to what Rakat (unit of prayer you are on). For example, in a four rakat prayer you are not sure if you are on the third or fourth rakat. Some marjaa say assume you are on the fourth and finish the prayer, some say other than that. This is just one example. You are obligated to follow their rulings for the wajibat (daily prayers, fasting, hajj, and charity (khums)). You are also obligated to follow them in their ruling if they rule something is haram (forbidden). For example the issue of music. There are some marjaa that say all music is haram, but I think there is only one marjaa who says this and you cannot follow him because he is no longer alive. The rest have rulings on what specific types of music you can listen to and what types you can't. This is just one example. That is the extent of their authority over you, that you follow their rulings on these issues. If you are a man, you also have to follow their ruling if they declare a general military jihad (mandatory armed struggle in the way of God). This, however, has not happened anytime in recent history, but it could happen. The last one that was declared by a marjaa was in 2014 by Sayyid Sistani, and that only applied to the people of Iraq (it was not general). The purpose was to fight and defeat ISIS, which they did, Alhamdulillah.
  7. I think the main purpose behind them was not to influence the legislators, almost all of them are already bought and paid for by the Zionist Lobby. I think the main targets of this was the US public, most of whom (at least before October 7) didn't really care or have much information on the situation in Palestine. As most people do, the would read a headline, or a tweet, and assume that it is true. The more of these they see, the more the idea becomes cemented in their mind. That's how propaganda works. It only works in the absence of true facts and information. What happened after October 7 was something that has never happened before, as far as the US public and the situation in Palestine. They got to see actual video and images from things happening on the ground in Gaza. They didn't need to read about it or hear from someone, they actually saw it with their own eyes. It was almost exclusively thru 1 platform, Tiktok, which is why the US govt is trying so hard to get it banned in the US. The other platforms like Insta, Facebook, YouTube, etc, heavily censored this content but some of it actually made it thru the censors anyway. I think this will go down in history as the decisive factor that turned the US public against the Zionists and I think the horse has already left the barn, the genie is already out of the bottle. There is no going back to the way it was before Oct. 7. The Zionists know that, and that's why their in damage control mode now to try and limit the dissent from spreading further than it already has.
  8. I was about to say that. If she's active on Insta, posting about herself and her pictures, and not about Islam, political causes, etc, then she's probably trolling for male attention, which is not something you would want to deal with, as far as a wife. I am not saying she is a bad person, but that would kind of be a red flag for me. So this might have been for the best. Salam.
  9. I agree to get her father and family involved right away but also don't pretend to them that you're 100% committed to marriage to her at this point. You don't know anything about her except that 'she's cute'. That isn't really much. There are alot of girls who are cute who, if you married them, would make your life a living hell. You need to make sure that the inside matches the outside. Tell her family that you want to get to know her. You would like to talk to her and interact with her in a respectful way with the goal being marriage if, after getting to know each other, you and her both agree that this is the way forward for the relationship. In other words, don't make him think like you want to marry his daughter tomorrow, as if you already know her.
  10. وَلَوْ شَآءَ رَبُّكَ لَـَٔامَنَ مَن فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ كُلُّهُمْ جَمِيعًا أَفَأَنتَ تُكْرِهُ ٱلنَّاسَ حَتَّىٰ يَكُونُوا۟ مُؤْمِنِينَ If your Lord had so willed (and, denying them free will, compelled humankind to believe), all who are on the earth would surely have believed, all of them. Would you, then, force people until they become believers?” Holy Quran 10:99 This ayat is showing that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) surely has the power to make everyone believe (i.e. Muslim). At the same time, He(s.w.a) placed us on earth for a specific purpose. Doing that would go against the purpose which He(s.w.a) had determined when he placed us on earth. The purpose of us being here is for us to recognize our Creator and worship Him(s.w.a) thru exercise of our own free will. That includes thru contemplation, observation, thru recognizing his signs (ayat) which he has placed in front of us, i.e thru using our intellect (aql) to recognize Him(s.w.a) even though we are not compelled to believe. The fact that we have a choice whether to use our intellect to recognize this ayat and believe in them or not use our intellect and deny them ( become kafir) means that there will be some people who will chose the latter, and that this the downside of having free will. The upside is that for the people who choose to use their intellect and believe in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and obey Him(s.w.a) despite not being compelled to do so have a great reward that no other creation has. The reward is the sakina (peace of mind and heart) in this life and in the next life Jennah (paradise), inshahAllah, which is the physical manifestation of the good and correct choice that was made by the mumineen and muminat.
  11. Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Rahim قَالُوا۟ يَـٰلُوطُ إِنَّا رُسُلُ رَبِّكَ لَن يَصِلُوٓا۟ إِلَيْكَ ۖ فَأَسْرِ بِأَهْلِكَ بِقِطْعٍۢ مِّنَ ٱلَّيْلِ وَلَا يَلْتَفِتْ مِنكُمْ أَحَدٌ إِلَّا ٱمْرَأَتَكَ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ مُصِيبُهَا مَآ أَصَابَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ مَوْعِدَهُمُ ٱلصُّبْحُ ۚ أَلَيْسَ ٱلصُّبْحُ بِقَرِيبٍۢ ٨١ Holy Quran 11:81 I agree that a new government won't change much. The only thing it might do is prevent WWIII. If it doesn't happen, I think we are headed for WWIII. I have been following this conflict for multiple decades at this point and I have many posts on it here dating back to (I think) 2006. I have never seen a time when the case for genocide (by the Israelis) was so, so obvious, there is a large swell of popular support for the Palestinian cause, mostly amoung non Muslims, and the oligarchs in the US / UK (Politicians, billionaires, the corporate world, and the media) are so completely silent, tone deaf and / or supportive of the Zionists. The contrast between the regular people and the oligarchs is so obvious to everyone, there is no way it can continue this way. There will be a big war (again) to distract the people and blur the lines between right and wrong or there will be an internal revolution. Those are basically the only two options. Like I said before, there won't be a ceasefire (which would be the third option) or at least I think this is very unlikely at this point. I think the best option at this point would be for, at least a significant portion of, the Israeli people to wake up and smell the genocide. Then put pressure on their government to stop or have a full scale revolution, either one is fine with me, as long as the result is that the genocide stops. If they fail to do this, and the window to do this is closing, I am very certain that the athab of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), the punishment of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) on them is not far away from them and not far away from all those in the US / UK / Europe who are staying silent or actively supporting the genocide. This punishment will be severe and one of the main reasons that I am speaking up about this is to prevent this punishment from reaching me and my family and those that I love and care about, since I live in the US. As Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is my witness I hate, despise and detest anyone who is either silent about this genocide or who actively supports it and I support all those, either within Gaza or outside of it, whether Muslim or non Muslim, who stand up for the Haqq by resisting this ongoing crime in whatever form is appropriate or available to them. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help those victims of this evil crime and may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) punish the criminals and their collaborators who are carry out this crime, wherever they may be.

  12. The marriage age in Islam is very flexible for two main reasons 1. The halal of Muhammad(p.b.u.h) is halal until The Day of Judgement. There will be no further changes in Sharia so the Sharia that we have must be flexible and accommodate all situations. There might be some circumstance at some point in time where a nine or ten year old girl wants to be married and she has both the physical maturity and psychological and social maturity and knowledge (rushd) to have a marriage relationship. Like I said before, this is very rare and a marriage like this would be inappropriate in 99.9999% of the cases because the girl, although she may be physically mature (i.e. she got her period, which is considered physically according to hukm sharia for marriage) she is not 'rushd' and she does not give her consent to the marriage, mostly because she does not understand and comprehend what her duties are as a wife. She might be able to recite a list of them, like a parrot does, but she does not have the understanding of what marriage is. Like i said, all these marriages that I am familiar with are forced marriages where the parents and not the girl benefit, which is an invalid marriage according to Sharia. Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) did not marry a nine year old. 2. I think a second reason is to show that age is not the most important or one of the most important things when it comes to marriage. At this point in history, people are completely obsessed with age to the point where when people post on social media alot of the time they list their age before their name, lol. I have seen many posts where a 20 year old girl is asking whether it is appropriate for her to be together with a 23 year old. In Islam, age is a factor but not one of the most important factors for a happy marriage. an 18 year old girl can be happily married to a 50 year old man and vice versa (so long as he doesn't want kids). There is no correlation, even scientifically between closeness in age and having a happy marriage, so long as the husband and the wife are compatible in other ways and go into the marriage of their own free will. Islam is very flexible as far as age in marriage and this is to ensure that otherwise happy marriages don't 'not happen' because people are so obsessed with age difference.
  13. At this point, I honestly believe the following, which may sound like a conspiracy to some and I don't have 100% evidence for it, but it is logical, given what is happening. Like the saying goes, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. Here it is 1. Netanyahu is never going to stop the war in Gaza until every single Palestinian including every man, women, and child is dead or has left Gaza and Israel still controls the border so they won't let them back in. Him stopping the war will mean the end of his political career and the end of his freedom, i.e. he will go to jail. He would rather see the entire world burn to the ground than withdraw from Gaza and make a deal with Hamas for a ceasefire 2. He is fully confident he can continue indefinitely because he has the full support of the governments of the US and UK. He believes that this is all he needs to continue. He doesn't care about any other countries in the world and what they do. He knows he can continue because he has 'dirt' on every single major figure in the govt of the US and UK (bribes, other incriminating evidence which he can release) government. He knows that they will support him because they don't want to be exposed for the hideous beasts that they truly are. 3. He can continue for a long time because even if Israel withdraws their ground forces from Gaza, which they are already starting to do, he can bomb from the air indefinitely, continuously destroying everything in Gaza and making life impossible there as long as he keeps getting the bombs from the US / UK. Based on this, there are only two ways it will stop at this point. 1. There is an internal revolution inside Israel which physically removes Netanyahu and his government and puts in a new government. I think this is very possible at this point. 2. This becomes a wider war which will lead to a full scale conflict between Hezb, Iran, Yemen, and possibly Jordan and Egypt, because the overwhelming majority of the people of Egypt and Jordan (not the governments) support the Palestinian cause. At that point, it will be game over and Israel will no longer exist. Hezb alone has hundreds of thousands of rockets which could raze Israel to the ground. That's not even including the other actors. Once you hear about thousands for rockets hitting Israel from Lebanon, you know we are well into this scenario. I think the only reason the US / UK diplomats are involved at all in this is to prevent number 2 from happening, because they already know what the outcome would be. I am hoping for number 1, because it would prevent many deaths.
  14. She is a zionist troll who wanted to become US president but even the genocidal maniacs of the Republican party didn't like her. She is Shaitan's toilet paper.
  15. She used to be a member here and post from time to time. This is probably one of the most tragic stories I have ever heard. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide her back to the Sirat Al Mustakeem, InSHahAllah. This is also a common problem amoung young, white female reverts.
