  1. Calling me homophobic doesn't offend me, I guess relatively compared to all the other things that have been said about me here. It's not accurate though. Saying I'm homophobic means I'm afraid of homosexuals. I'm not. As a muslim, I have no problem with a person who is a homosexual, and I'm not *afraid* of them. I am simply making a point about their action, because this action leads to the disintegration of the bonds that hold society together. I also have a problem with other trends in American society such as the legalization of drugs, such as marijuana, and the mainstreaming of things like
  2. To gain weight, you need to eat carbohydrates (pasta, bread, etc). Eating fat by itself, without eating carbs will actually make you lose weight, not gain weight. This is known in the US as the keto diet. So if you wake up for Suhur (Sahr) and eat something, like bread or rice, pasta, etc, then eat a good meal for iftar, you shouldn't lose weight. You don't need to eat a big meal of carbs to gain weight, you just need to eat some with every meal. I've notice that the people who lose alot of weight during Ramadan are the ones who eat mostly vegetables and meat with no carbs.
  3. Overpopulation is not actually a problem. The problem is certain governments which oppress the people by stealing so much of the resources of a country, that there is hardly anything left for the population. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) provides the rizq for everyone, this is a core belief of Islam, or at least Shiism. It is when the rizq is stolen from the people by the oppressors, that is where the problem starts. It is logical, because an increase in population also creates an increase in rizq thru increase in economic activity. There has been many studies done on the issue of overpopula
  4. If that were true, then how can we reconcile the fact that most, if not all those who identify as 'gay' believe, and will say openly that they were 'born gay'. They also say that there is scientific evidence for this. I haven't heard a mainstream scientist yet who is well known and respected, in the West, that came out to say, 'Actually this isn't true and there is no scientific evidence for it. During the pandemic, I was proud of many members of our American Scientific community who came out and contradicted the President at that time, despite this being a risky career move, to say that
  5. Given the evidence presented, the logical conclusion is as follows, 1. Children, before puberty, do not have sexual attraction (same sex or opposite sex) 2. Noone is 'born gay' 3. That means that identifying as gay or some variant of that (trans, bi,etc) is a decision that someone makes between puberty and x number of years after puberty. This decision is influenced by genetics (factors) as well as the person themselves (their individual personality, likes, dislikes, opinions, etc) and the prevailing attitudes in society toward this issue. It is also possible that this decision
  6. He(s.w.a) talks to us, but not thru speech. He talks to us thru the ayat(signs) that point to His(s.w.a) existence. This video can explain further As far as having a conversation, like we have with human beings, we are not in a spiritual state to be able to deal with that. It would be like shoving a firehose in your mouth to drink water. You would probably die or become severely injured because your body can't handle that volume and pressure of water.If you are thirsty, you can drink from a cup or bottle, so a firehose is not necessary. The direct communication of Allah (سُبْحَا
  7. How many times do I have to respond to this ? Wow. Genetic factors and genetically determined are two, completely different things. Please review your High School (or middle school) Biology textbook for more info If every human behavior which has genetic factors that contribute to it is ok, then we, as a society, should have no problem with drug addicts, alcoholics, pedophiles, rapists, murderers, child molesters, etc. All these behaviors have genetic factors behind them, they are not genetically determined. Most human behaviors and preferences, like what foods you like, what time you lik
  8. I guess you didn't read my post. I stated, and I stated with an example from my own life, that there are genetic factors to same sex attraction. I also acknowledged 'literally the first sentence' as you sarcastically put it. Genetic factors does not mean that same sex attraction is genetically determined, like biological sex, skin color, eye color, hair color, face shape, etc. When people say 'I was born gay, I had no other choice', that is a statement that is not backed up by any scientific research that I am aware of. That was the point. Guess you missed it, or are unwilling to acknowle
  9. Becoming Bulugh and Rushd (physically and mentally mature) doesn't happen in 1 day. It's not like when you turn 9 (for a girl) or 14 (for a boy) then 'poof', you're Bulugh and Rusd. It is a process that happens over years. It happens gradually when the realization of 'right' and 'wrong' happens and the idea of responsibility and personal accountability for actions develops. This process involves many 'moving parts' and it is also affected by the culture and the society the person grows up in, i.e. societal expectations. That is why in the Sharia, there is no exact age defined for Bulgh
  10. Bismillah Ta'la Quran 9:33 He it is Who hath sent His messenger with the guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He may cause it to prevail over all religion, however much the idolaters may be averse. https://www.instagram.com/p/COW2faHntTD/?igshid=wuj4k7c4l2kt MashAllah, to the brother for this. It might be the first time in history this Dua has been read in front of a US Legislative body. We, as followers of Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)) should 'savor' this moment. It is a step forward for us.
  11. It's been observed in animals, but only in very specific situations. Animals have desire (hawa or instinct) but have no aql (intelligence / rational thought). The mechanisms that produce this desire are quite complex, so some researchers 'superimpose' human thought onto animals when they see them doing certain behaviors. Since animals have no way to communicate with us, besides very rudimentary ways, there is noone who can 'disprove' this theory of some researchers that animals have intelligence and rational thoughts like us. At the same time, the hadith from Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)) are cle
  12. I would advise against listening to Alex Jones on basically anything. Although a few things he says are true, as the saying go 'A broken clock gives the right time twice per day'. He is an opportunist and a snake oil salesman who will say basically anything to get his name out there and increase traffic for his projects which he makes money on.
  13. Right. Even in the article I quoted, it said there were genetic 'factors' to same sex attraction. This is not the same as being 'born gay'. Born gay means you have no choice, and you can only be attracted by the same gender. There are genetic factors to almost everything, alcoholism, pedophilia, bad temper, as you mentioned, plus others. It's a personal issue with me. When I was young, I had an extremely bad temper. I can't even remember how many fist fights I got into before I was 25. Alhamdulillah I never killed anyone or was killed myself. I also had genetic factors for it, high testosteron
  14. Here is an interesting answer to this question i found Syeds are often told that they get double the reward and chastisement for their deeds compared to others. Is this true? If so, isn't this unfair as nobody chooses their own lineage? Sayyed Mohammad Al-Musawi, Sayyed Mohammad al-Musawi is originally from Iraq and heads up the World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League in London. Other than being involved in various humanitarian projects, he frequently responds to...Answered 1 month ago It is absolutely fair as all the rules of Islam are fair wi
  15. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-02585-6 The largest study1 to date on the genetic basis of sexuality has revealed five spots on the human genome that are linked to same-sex sexual behaviour — but none of the markers are reliable enough to predict someone’s sexuality. The findings, which are published on 29 August in Science and based on the genomes of nearly 500,000 people, shore up the results of earlier, smaller studies and confirm the suspicions of many scientists: while sexual preferences have a genetic component, no single gene has a large effect on sexual behaviours.
