  1. I will give thanks for any politician who is doing something to help the poor and oppressed, as this is in line with the teachings of Prophet Muhammad(p.b.u.h) and Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)), no matter what their party or ideology. She seems to be doing this more than other politicians. You don't have to agree with all her policies and ideology to make this statement. Wealth Inequality is the most major issue in the United States. It has been for the last 40 years at least. No mainstream politicians from either party are doing much about it. So it gets worse and worse. Republicans will p
  2. Yes. I know what the New Testament is. These were accounts of the life of Jesus(peace be upon him) given by the authors of those books, according to their opinions. The Injeel is a book that was given to Jesus, by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), God with a capital 'G'. Jesus(peace be upon him) didn't write the book, nor did any other author. This book was given to the disciples, but was lost. This book is currently with the Imam(a.f.s), successor to Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him). Since the Imam(a.f.s) is currently in occultation, this book is not available to the general public at this
  3. That's not entirely correct. It depends on your niyyat (intention) for the talking. If the niyyat is to talk to her so that you can (possibly, with her consent of course) have a halal marriage relationship (either mutah or zawaj tul nikah), then there is nothing wrong with it, as long as you conduct yourself as non mahram to her before the recitation of the marriage contract. If your niyyat is to do something haram with her without a contract (aqd), then, only then is it haram to talk to her. Also if you know that she's not Muslima or Ahl Al Kitab then it's haram to talk to her (for marriage)
  4. I think @notme gave the best answer so far. I would also like to add that every field of work has gray areas that you will have to navigate. So in this way, being a doctor is no different from being in IT, Engineering, Service Industries, etc. There are always aspects to a job or career that, if you are not careful, will lead you into gray areas and even into haram and sometimes big haram. The fact that you are aware of the areas and are investigating them is a good sign that you will be ethical in whatever career you choose, provided you maintain this habit and don't become complacent.
  5. Thank you for sharing that. Im happy that your son beat his addiction. Just a quick correction the Book of John is not the Injeel. The Injeel is a book given to Jesus by God. The Injeel is not available to us at this moment in time.
  6. The hijab is an important issue, and not a side issue, as some make it out to be. Here is a good video for you to watch as far as importance of Hijab. As far as your father goes, if you know something is wajib, you shouldn't let anything stand between you and doing it, not even your father. I am a revert myself and my father is not muslim (my mother, brothers, and sister are, they converted with me, Alhamduillah). You have to face your fears eventually, today is better than tommorow to do this, because the longer you wait, the more aggressive he may become, feeling more
  7. Also, yes I would encourage you to report this to the University. At the same time, you have to understand that at many universities, this act will trigger an investigation which may involve a hearing /meeting in which both of you have to be present in the same room / location. Also, there is a good chance that there will be no sanctions against him, as he will probably say the encounter was consensual, then it will be a he said / she said, with no concrete evidence either way to establish a basis for him being sanctioned / punished. This is how most of these cases end, unfortunately. You shou
  8. There is a lesson to learn from it, but it has nothing to do with him, if what you are saying is an accurate portrayal of the situation. If you kept to proper behavior regarding mahram / non mahram interactions, then you have passed this course. There is no more exams, lol. I know this is difficult to share because many people, even other sisters, assume that you were doing something to encourage him in order to get attention or to get something else (free tutoring, answers to a test, etc), i.e. leading him on. Although this practice is very common in Universities, at least here in the W
  9. If you have your intellect, then your intellect will naturally lead to the conclusion that we (the ummah) need an Imam. Next, in the hadiths that are universally accepted, Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) says there will be 12 Imams. If Imam Mehdi(a.f.s) doesn't exist, or he hasn't been born yet (as some say), then this is huge problem. If he doesn't exist, then there was only 11 and not 12 and Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) was wrong (ashtaghfirAllah). If Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) was wrong on this then what else was he wrong about. You see, this undermines the faith completely if accepted. If he has not been bor
  10. Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Rahim الم ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ Alim Lam Meem This is the (Divine) Book in which there is no doubt. A Guidance for those who are conscious of God. Those who believe in the unseen, and who are constant in Salat, and who spend out of what We have given them in sustenence. Holy Quran. Chapter 2, Verses 1 - 3 Notice the phrase, 'الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ', those who believe in the unseen. Why was this me
  11. This is a religious website, so I'm assuming the sister is looking for religious advice. Otherwise, there are plenty of other secular sources she could have gone to.
  12. When you use that kind of logic, you're going down a slippery slope. In Islam, there is one standard for everyone, that is behavior. No haram act is a sin until you actually do it. This is so people would consider the implications of their actions before they do them. If I say, 'well I'm not thinking that way' so I am excused for doing the act because of my thinking, then anyone could be excused for anything, and then there is no such as thing as reward and punishment. Reward and punishment are only just when there is a common standard by which everyone is rewarded or punished, and this standa
  13. If you think it's none of a secular governments business, that's a nice theory, but it doesn't work in reality. Everyone is advocating for their own beliefs, in one way or another. Political parties have a bigger pulpit and a bigger microphone, that's the only difference between us and them. If you join a party, you are endorsing that set of beliefs. The Democratic party is not neutral on the issue of gay marriage. Maybe the Democratic party of the 1980s was. Things have changed alot since then. They actively promote it, and shun anyone who disagrees with it. If they were neutral, they w
  14. I should add that we, as muslims and followers of Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)) should not align ourselves with either party. Both platforms (Republican and Democrat) have parts of them that align with Islam and parts that are 180 degrees opposite of what we believe in. They both represent Taghuti ideaologies. Our leader is Imam Zaman(a.f.s), and in the ghaib Al Kubra also our marjaa, may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless them all and give them long life. Full Stop. We should use strategy when it comes to voting, as per the advice of our leaders, the marjaa', so that we can get our rights. Bu
  15. Very good list. I would add that the last two should be done all the time, whether one is married or not.
