    Musa got a reaction from Maryam.It in Is hell eternal?   
    Yes from most scholars i have heard it is temporary and eternal. Most people will be going to heaven ... whether it will be directly or after having some time in hell. yes i have also heard the point of people who will being going to hell eternally that it is because they would commit sin on earth eternally.

    Musa got a reaction from hasanhh in Muslim Survey for PHD Program - Please help!   
    My sister's friend is conducting a survey, she's looking at perceptions of minority groups, Muslims' attitudes, beliefs, and identities. The survey takes 12-15 minutes long.

    I also really need help spreading the word, so if you could share this with your Muslim friends, families, and networks (those that live in America!), I would really appreciate it!    Hard to recruit populations such as Muslim-Americans are accessed through word of mouth and so spreading the word to your networks would immensely helps me in collecting the data I need and to better represent the Muslim-American narrative in academic literature!

    Musa got a reaction from Zavon in How to wake up for Fajr?   
    I think there is a hadith about someone not being able to wake up for salatul layl and if im not mistaken the imam said it was due to the sins he committed during the day. Easier said than done, but try to focus on working on those sins.  No one is perfect, but strive towards that perfection. 
    Also reading the last verse from Surah Kahf (the cave) before you sleep will help you wake up for fajr inshallah

    Musa got a reaction from Al-Hassan in Teaching In Madrassah A Losing Battle   
    You need to talk to them about subjects that they are interested. Yes rules about prayer, fasting, and najasat are important. But how are you going to teach those things to a kid who has a girlfriend? Or who is inclined to drink alcohol or do drugs? 
    Talk to them about school issues, not just about fiqh and history. The issue is that teachers don't engage properly and the kids just sit there. Put them in groups to have discussions and speak about why Islam is the only religion that makes sense (but do this by being relevant). 
     
    There is a great hadith about not raising children how we were raised, because each generation is different. You can't teach kids how we were taught, its a completely different world.

    from his blog: http://malcolmshabazz.blogspot.com/2013/03/statement-by-malcolm-shabazz-concerning.html
    The formula for a public assassination is: the character assassination before the physical assassination; so one has to be made killable before the eyes of the public in order for their eventual murder to then deemed justifiable. And when the time arrives for these hits to be carried out you’re not going to see a C.I.A. agent with a suit & tie, and a badge that says "C.I.A." walk up to someone, and pull the trigger. What they will do is to out-source to local police departments in the region of their target, and to employ those that look like the target of interest to infiltrate the workings in order to set up the environment for the eventual assassination (character, physical/incarceration, exile) to take place.

    Musa reacted to *Sayyeda* in Potential Convert Wants To Know About Women's Role   
    Assalamualaykum
    There is a lot of material about women and her rights in Islam. To begin with, 'Woman and her rights' by Ayatullah Murtada Mutahhari which can be purchased or found at this link: http://www.al-islam.org/womanrights/ is a good choice.
    It gives an overview of a woman's place in Islam and discusses women's roles within family life and socially. Islam has the utmost respect for women and contrary to what media would have you believe, does not oppress women. This book discusses both women in the Quran as well as these modern implications of being a Muslimah. I wish her well and that InshAllah her concerns are addressed.
    Wa Salaam

    Musa reacted to Abu Hadi in Potential Convert Wants To Know About Women's Role   
    Salam,
    In Islamic society, most of the responsibilities are shared by men and women. The most important responsibility is to recognize that there is One God, Allah(s.w.a), without partners or equals and that Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) is His(s.w.a) Messenger. Then it is to recognize the Wilayat and Imamate of the 12 Imams (Leaders) after Prophet Muhammad(p.b.u.h) and the last Imam Mahdi, son of Imam Hassan Al Askari(a.s) (a.f.s) who is present amoung us and will rise on the order of Allah(s.w.a) and fill the earth with justice after it has been filled with injustice.
    The next is to keep up the five daily prayers, fasting during Ramadan, Hajj if you are able, and paying the zakat (if it applies to you). After that, it is being honest, keeping your promises and commitments, and keeping good relationships with family and having good behaviour with others (nice manners, not being overly suspicious, aggresive, or rude). The next is to do the things which are 'extremely mustahab' but not wajib. The most important one of these is getting married. In marriage, the women's responsibilities are slightly different from the mans. They are both required to be honest with each other, cover over the others faults, forgive their spouse, keep their secrets, and protect their lives and property. The only 'hard' (meaning fixed, not subject to negotiation) requirements for a women is that she is available sexually for her husband unless she is sick, menstruating, or it is during the daytime in Ramadan. The 'hard' requirement for a man is that he provides financially for his children (in all cases ) and his wife (if they are permenantly married) which includes giving them food, clothing, and shelter and being generous with them to the point that Allah(s.w.a) gives him the ability to do this. They are to work as a team and do what is necessary to keep the family and marriage together and create a healthy, religious environment in the home for themselves and the children. Those are the basics.
    Her rights are that she has the right to her life, her freedom(within the limits set by Sharia), and her property. She cannot be harrased or forced unless she is engaged in public displays of extreme indecency. She has the right to choose her husband, her career (or not to have a career), where she lives and who she associates with, her cloths (withing the limits set by Sharia), etc. If she marries her husband in permenant marriage (zawaj tul nikah), she has the right to ask for financial support from him for her and her children and he has to oblige her. She has the right to be paid for household chores and even for breastfeeding her own children (although it is rare for women to ask for this). If I think of anymore I'll post. Salam.

    Musa got a reaction from *Sayyeda* in Potential Convert Wants To Know About Women's Role   
    There is a sister who is very interested in Islam, but she does not know how women should act . She knows about hijab, and recently started learning about Islam so she is still learning the basics.
    I guess she is concerned with the woman's role in society in general.
    -What are her rights as a woman? as a wife?
    - What are her responsibilities as a woman, wife, mother, etc?
    - How should she act in public/private.
    Any good links or any advice would be great.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    I posted this in general discussion, but I thought it would be more appropiate if I had answers from sisters.

    Also, if anyone could give me advice on how to help this sister learn more about Islam please let me know.

    Musa got a reaction from Hameedeh in Books For Non-Muslims Who Want To Learn About Shia   
    There is a catholic I know who wants to learn about Islam. Currently she knows barely anything about our religion and I was hoping to mail her some books that will teach her the basics of Shiasm.
    She seems willing to convert because she is unsure of her own faith, I was wondering if anyone could give any tips on what subjects would be best to discuss with her.
    Thanks!
    (and yes I know the Qur'an is the best source) :)

    Musa got a reaction from aliasghark in From Nakshawani To Yaser Al Habib   
    Islam is not separate from politics. All of our Imams were political leaders, even their great companions were governor or some type of political leader. It is actually many of our sunni brothers and sisters who believe they should be separate.
    The reason why people dislike Yassir and Allahyari is not because of Iran. Most people dislike them because of the lack of their akhlaq. For instance, Allahyari will have callers to his show and when a sunni calls in he will call it the omarri line. They are very disrespectful to our brothers in Islam, what ever happened learning from the patience of Imam Ali? If you want to debate, that is perfectly fine. Look at how people like Hassanin Rajabali debate, it is with pure akhlaq.
    Secondly, there are many shias who are considered as kaffirs and killed because of the words of these people. These satellite channels reach muslim countries that are predominately sunni. Some of these countries like Afghanistan and Pakistan still have a lot of wahhabi type sunnis who will see these shows and then kill shias. Why would you incite hatred and cause disunity? Muslims have always been taken over because of us being divided and conquered.
