  1. Exactly. The more you concede, the more people will ask for more and more concessions. I think us humans will never be satisfied, so to make it simpler, draw the line where Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) draws the line. People can where their immodest clothes in their private gatherings if they are so bent on showing their hair and bodies to others.
  2. Yep pretty much but it is hard wired into us to want our children to end up as pious mumineen and is heartbreaking when doing our best still isn't enough to guide them. But that in and of itself is a test for us. Parenthood is akin to prophethood and our duty remind and warn but ultimate guidance is between the individual and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). This is a fresh and honest look at parenthood I read recently if anyone finds it relevent to their situation: https://messageinternational.org/society/my-child-has-wandered-off-the-straight-path/ Goes against most peoples fitrah and general islamic recommendation but thats fine, its not wajib.
  3. Salam, maybe you could specify and number which points are bringing your friend the most doubt so that it is easier for others to respond. Also maybe you and the friend with doubt could have a logical discussion starting from the obvious questions such as Who created the first particles to become the big bang? How is everything around us in such perfect order and design?
  4. I'm not sure where you live but there is an online bookseller in the UK (house of taha) and one in the US (al buraq) that I know sells the book. Here is the goodreads link to it with info and reviews: https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/45316587-peace-be-upon-ibrahim
  5. I am grateful for Shaheed Ibrahim Hadi for changing my life. I read his book at the beginning of the year and since then, the fog has lifted. Everything is so much clearer now. Things make sense. Life makes sense. And I thank Allah for the honor of letting me know him.
  6. Salam What are some practical ways to put love of ahlulbayt and the Prophet (saww) in ones heart? I love them in my mind/intellect but struggle to feel it in my heart of hearts. As in I read about them and read their hadiths and appreciate who they are and their wisdom, but there is a sort of disconnect. How do I reach that love where there is a yearning and a willingness to sacrifice everything for them? I am looking for practical tips, things that have actually impacted you.
  7. Allah is Most Merciful, but your father also has to do his part as best he can and pay the kaffara and make up the fasts. Better to ask a scholar though.
  8. What in the world... Has to be one of the weirdest threads I've seen here.
  9. Hello, you could start here, this is an article about wudhu (ablution) and it has a section about the difference between the sects https://en.wikishia.net/view/Wudu' And here is a video Al-islam.org is a great resource with lots of books about Shia Islam, you could start here for their section on shia/Sunni https://www.al-islam.org/explore/shia-and-sunni
  10. I only caught bits and pieces, I'd like to be able to listen through. If anyone recorded it let me know plz plz.
  11. One thing to keep in mind for the guys who are wondering why a girl didnt fight for the relationship after seeming committed, is that although men are more reluctant to commit to the relationship initially, once he is committed, he is usually MORE committed to the marriage than the woman. Hence why many more divorces are initiated by women than man. And perhaps has something to do with the wisdom of not giving the right of divorce to women in Islam, but Allah knows best.
  12. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qbytesapp.client This app is really great. It is by Q Fatima who is a quran expert. She has a bunch of resources about Quran and other things. For me it is helpful to listen and learn from someone who is super enthusiatic about Quran. Its really inspiring. Plus everyone should download and support her work, may Allah bless her enormous contributions to this religion.
  13. Yes someone mature would have thought through all of those things but it sounds like maybe she is immature and not thinking things through. I have done immature things before and didnt think things through. Everything happens for a reason though and one day you will see the wisdom in going through this heartbreak. You will become stronger and wiser for it inshaAllah. Take time to heal and do some self care and confide in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). He put this trial in your life and knows the pain you bear, but like a parent, only puts you through temporary difficulty for your own good and betterment. Gold refined by fire.
