  2. salaams 'alaykum Khurram, please read http://www.al-islam.org/al-serat/muta/ Sleeping with your slave-girl is allowed in Islam and is even mentioned in the Qur'an but you don't see muslims doing that anymore. Likewise muslims should avoid doing mut'ah with non-muslim women unless their is an emergency, namely one is afraid he will fall into haraam. See Ayatullah Saanei's opinion mentioned on this forum. Saanei is a genius. He says mut'ah with a non-muslim woman is allowed however one must try his best to avoid pregnancy and not be influenced by her beliefs. Furthermore Saanei says that mut

This topic has been discussed inside out on this forum. The info online at al-islam.org is more than ample: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=...%3Aal-islam.org We have put together a mut'ah contract for public use. Please print it out and show it to you resident 'Alims and community leaders. http://geocities.com/aly2k1/contract.htm Goals: 1.Make mut'ah transparent and dignified as it was intente
  4. salaams, I also do tab'eedh between 5 marja's, Nasir Makarim, Saanei, Fadlullah and Jannati and Sistani. http://www.jannaati.com/eng/index.php?page=6 http://english.bayynat.org.lb/Fatawa/index.htm http://www.saanei.org/index.php?lang=en http://makaremshirazi.org/english/ http://sistani.org/local.php?modules=main Here is a quote from Jannati about following the most knowledgeable marja'. In fact Muhammad Shirazi and Fadlullah have the same point of view. I could not find any refutation so I have no choice but to do tab'eedh. It is the natural way and the easy way. It is not necessary that a

  7. salaams, When I said "my child" I didn't mean any offense or insult. In my culture we address younger people as child. Is it haraam to address you as "my child" in Islam? As a moderator you should be more cognizant of cultural differences among muslims. You should give the benefit of the doubt as Imam 'Ali (as) taught that you shouldn't take offense for any word coming out of your brothers mouth if it is possible to take it in a positive way. My point of the post was to show you that your interpretation of the opinion of Ayatullah Khomeini appears to be flawed. Are you implying that Ayatulla
  8. I can ask you the same thing. Why are you so concerned about marriage? Aren't you already married??? I never pretended to be a woman. Amatullah was originally one of my wives usernames and I took it over. So what? You may check my profile. It says "male". Did it ever say "female"? No. I write pro-mut'ah and pro-polygyny because these are two aspects of Islam that are neglected and looked down upon by society though they are much needed. Mut'ah is like you said a sacred institution and so long as it is practiced properly it is an act of worship. Allah did not make you the judge. Who
  9. salaams, I try to look in the Qur'an for solutions to social problems, then the ahaadeeth. What is the name of the text book you are quoting? Islam encourages that you do trade "tijaarah" with Allah. Trade is an exchange right? You give something and you get something in return. Isn't that reciprocity? There is nothing wrong with reciprocity. The problem is the kafir wants immediate gratification. The believer is willing to defer his reward until the next world. Therefore if a kafir gets no immediate results for his good deeds in this world he usually abandons the deed, and that includes loo

  12. My child, if everything was fine and in all ways, the house was ideal there was no need for doing the "yes, no" version of istikhara was there? Hence only such a person would be one who has no intelligence, who is defiant, and who does not have a correct understanding of the Istikhara. The real meaning of istikhara is talab al khair (to seek the best from Allah). See the du'a of sahifah. Allah wants you to seek His guidance via supplication when making major decisions. Allah doesn't like it when we don't supplicate to Him when we want to make major decisions. Some people have interpreted th
  13. yes but they ship out the books from pakistan. i don't want to import the books. i prefer to buy it in the US. They want me to send a check etc. It is a hassle. Any bookstores online in the US or Canada selling his books?
  14. salaams, thanks for the excellent advise. see: http://www.al-islam.org/istikhara/ i know there are istikhara fanatics who do istikhara for "everything" and i know there are people on the other extreme who don't believe in doing this type of istikhara at all. my preferred way of istikhara is to to pray to Allah for guidance and Allah sends the impulse in your heart. see the book at: http://www.al-islam.org/istikhara/ istishara is to pray to Allah to help you make the right decision and then seek the advise of a good mu'min and Allah will make the tongue of that good mu'min speak something that
  15. i think this thread was very useful. many people can learn from this experience this poor sister had. #1 Scrutinize your suitor very well before marrying him or her permanently. #2 Don't tolerate sin and abuse. If your spouse is disobeying Allah end the marriage. If you tolerate abuse it is only going to get worse. #3 Avoid pregnancy until you are relatively sure you got a good spouse. #4 Don't humiliate your family on a public forum. People can be pretty judgmental and rightly so many a time. We are obligated to do Amr bil Ma'roof. Publically announcing your sins and the sins of your lov
