  1. Keep an Islamic adab/virtue. Remain respectful and treat your ex honourably. Breakups are not easy. So, empathize and be kind.
  2. Is there any authentic narration that indicates Zoroaster was a Prophet? If not, then, ultimately, we don't and can't know. The people who claim he was are most likely doing it for national pride reasons.
  3. No. Where have you learned this? If you know of any authentic hadith, post them, and we'll go over the differences.
  4. Masturbation, which results in ejaculation, is considered Zina.
  5. He was a Hanafi Sunni Faqih. Let's not pretend everyone we like is a follower of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) in secret.
  6. Here are a few points to keep in mind: 1. Rumi was not a follower of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). 2. The Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) are the source of all knwoledge. 3. Only the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) can properly interpret the Qur'an. 4. The Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) were not Sufis and there are a couple of narrations in which they directly denounced the Sufis. Therefore, any individual, scholar, scientist, mystic, philosopher, who tries to understand and interpret the Qur'an or Islam, independently from the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), will fail and cannot be trusted. If Rumi's teachings do not stem from the teachings of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) or if he's teaching something that was neither taught nor endorsed by the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), then he has deviated from the Straight Path. That being said, the article, incorrectly, puts mysticism and philosophy against the "Hadith current." This is frustratingly incorrect and irresponsible. Philosophers, as long as their views are in line with the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), have a lot to offer. Through dissection and making connections, philosophers can effectively bring forth the roots and the implications of the teachings of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). Other than the illegitimate reasons of national pride or dilution of religious teachings, we have no legitimate reasons to look beyond the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) to learn about Islam, God, and love.
  7. Yes. I must say, I disagree with almost everything he says. His arrogance is repulsive and his ignorance is vast. However, it's interesting to see how an atheist does mental gymnastics when talking about spirituality.
  8. Salam, As brother AbdulKarim313 indicated, there's no doubt that Eve was created from a part of Adam. So, knowing this, we need to understand the proper meaning of سنخ in this context.
  9. Engagement with different opinions and ideas may unsettle individuals from their comfortable web of beliefs. It may result in anxiety, fear, and regret. Regret for investing much feeling and work into a potentially incorrect belief or a set of beliefs. On the other hand, being apathetic and in an epistemic bubble or echo chamber is reassuring to one. It, falsely, increases one's confident and it gives one a sense of belonging. And all this without expending much energy. In this sense, an equilibrium is formed. And all systems prefer to keep the equilibrium in tact. We've evolved or have been conditioned to seek the most reward with the least amount of energy expenditure. So, ultimately, we ought to go against our preferences. And like quitting any other addiction, this is a very difficult task. Most people either give up or never try. And this is just from the individual's perspectives. Culture and power make things much more complicated. Our religion's method to combat this is to push us to attend certain rituals, even when they seem quite inconvenient, such as fasting. It shakes our equilibrium to a large degree, and it's up to us to continue shaking our inner pond, so it doesn't get stagnant. Stagnant ponds are where insects and infectious microorganisms reside.
  10. In our narrations, it's stated that whether one ejaculates due to masturbation or bestiality, they're both considered Zina. There are people, who may think masturbation is no big deal. It is. In a narration, masturbation and bestiality are putt side by side, and ejaculation due to either is equated with Zina.
  11. It obviously is as there is at least one long chapter with multiple narrations on it in Al-Kafi. There are the legal matters of course, and then there are the metaphysical matters that can be extrapolated.
  12. I appreciated these narrations. They make it very clear that Eve is indeed created from Adam, a part of Adam, no room for uncertainty. However, the section that I quoted is problematic. "The clay that was left over" isn't a part of Adam. So, this part of the narration contradicts other parts of the narration. All other parts and narrations speak of Eve being taken from a part of Adam. The left-over clay isn't a part of Adam, and it was never a part of Adam.
  13. For context, the following may be important. If a child (not one's own) is breastfed by one's wife (for ten times or more), then the husband cannot marry that child, and the husband's children cannot marry that child either. This change doesn't depend on the milk itself, but on the impregnating agent, the man. Two different children, breastfed by the same woman, can still marry one another, if the reason that that woman has breast milk are two different men. And the only contribution of man to the production of breast milk in a woman is his semen entering her to make her pregnant.
  14. I asked above, if سنخ can be translated to "alveolous". If so, then we can also looking into a connection between Adam's breath and Eve.
