  1. (salam) I was talking to my colleague at work about karma. I asked her whether or not she believed in karma. This is roughly what she said: "No, i don't believe in karma. Look at how many evil people there are in the world who are living happily and how many innocent people who are being abused and are miserable most of the time. Karma doesn't always get the evil people back. A lot die evil and happy. And what about the innocent people? They live a really bad life and die that way. They don't end up being happy or anything. In fact, in this world it's always the evil people that are happy and successful and the poor/good/innocent people that are abused, live a very bad life and suffer from really severe illnesses. If karma really did exist, these poor innocent people would not live this way." I was going to tell her that if they don't get their punishment/reward in this life, they'll get it in the hereafter. But i know she doesn't believe in the hereafter, so i didn't bring it up. I just let the conversation fade. I started thinking about what she had said and i thought to myself..."could she really be right?". For the evil people that don't get punished in this life...they will definitely get punished in the hereafter. But what about those evil people that karma DOES get? Why are they getting punished TWICE whereas the other evil person is only getting punished once (i.e. the hereafter)? And what about the innocent Muslims...that are abused/live a sad life in this world and also get punished in the hereafter for not being good Muslims? Why do they get double the punishment? Do you get what i'm saying? And what about the non-Muslims that live a bad life? Is their punishment 'lighter' in the hereafter? I believe Allah (swt) is the Most Just, but how would i answer a person if they asked me these questions? Can someone please shed some light on this topic? Jazakum Allahu Khair.
  2. Put lemon juice on your scalp (make sure its dry) for 15mins. Wash your hair. Allow to dry. Put blackseed oil (Nigella sativa) on your scalp for a few hours and then wash out. Repeat weekly. Another remedy known to work: Cut around 20 garlic cloves (or whatever they're called) into half and put them in a jar. Add 600ml of olive oil to the jar. Keep closed for 4 weeks. The nutrients from the garlic diffuses out and into the oil and guess what? You've got garlic oil. Put it on your scalp weekly. It smells but it works. Make sure you massage your head every night so that you have good blood circulation to your scalp. Exercise also helps. Good luck.

  4. Does anyone know Sayed Ali Sistani's laws regarding this issue?
  5. (salam) These questions are regarding an unconsummated marriage. Is the husband allowed to ask for any amount in khula' or are there certain rules as to how much he should be paid? If the husband and wife haven't been speaking to each other (for over 2 years) because the wife want's a divorce but the husband won't divorce her, does he still have to pay nafaqa to her? What are the consequences of not paying nafaqa to the wife in an unconsummated marriage? If the husband does not want the wife but will not divorce her because he wants the khula' money, does this then become a normal divorce where he must pay half of the mo'akhar (the amount he agreed to pay the wife when he divorces her in the marriage contract)? Jazakum Allah Khair.
  6. (salam) These questions are regarding an unconsummated marriage. Is the husband allowed to ask for as much money as he wants in khula' or are there certain rules as to how much he should be paid? If a couple have not been talking to each other for over 2 years because the wife wants a divorce but the husband will not give it to her, does he still have to give her nafaqa (i.e. spend on her)? If he hasn't been giving her nafaqa, what are the consequences? Jazakum Allah Khair.
  7. All soaps contain animal fat. But in the process of making soap, there is no more animal fat left so it is therefore Pak just like Sayed Ali Sistani stated above.
  8. The number 12 is actually referring to the children of Israel (they were 12). Prophet Ya'qub (as) had 12 sons, one being Prophet Yusuf (as). But is it good to relate the Imams (as) to Prophet Yusuf's brothers? :unsure:
  9. It's better to die on your feet than live on your knees

  10. That's exactly my point. They were mentioned in the conditions. Well follow up the link and read more. I'm sure you'll find Quran and ahadith to justify their reasoning. Why do you keep thinking they are "excuses"? They are justification from the Quran, hadith and history of Islam. Noone agrees with changing religion for a certain type of people. Besides, if a non-Muslim was to approach you and ask you about polygamy are you going to say "yep, a man can marry four wives if he wishes and noone can stop him" or would you provide them with a justification to why and when it is okay. When someone tells you something is halal you cannot just believe it. You must always ask why. It's the same with polygamy. One may ask themselves what is the reason polygamy is allowed in Islam? What purpose does it serve? Why is it implemented? If it is on no purpose then you would reject it. But alhamdullilah, Islam has none of that.
  11. The correct one would be the one that thinks they're evil and defend themselves. That is logic. Because it is their land. They have every right to defend themselves and their people. Just because you're hungry you cannot go kill a person for their food. You can ask but if they don't to give you that is entirely up to them. Yeh sure that's really cruel but their food is their belonging not yours. You cannot take someone's belonging without their permission. From my understanding, that would be logic. Unless they're fighting each other for the same reason? They would both be wrong in that case.
  12. Lol. Maybe the "excuse" if that's what you like to call it for the first marriage would be sexual desires or companionship or to settle...or all of these together. Who knows. But to marry again for sexual desires? That would be wrong because you can fulfill your sexual desires with your first wife, unless otherwise (which was one of the conditions). To marry again for companionship would also be the same. And to marry again to settle down...well you've already settled down brother. I don't see how it works if there are no conditions to polygamy. And that is the reason the scholars have put these rules. I quoted a few paragraphs from al-islam.org in this thread. This website is very trustworthy and applies Qur'an, Hadith and logic into every thing it mentions. Good point about Khadija and Fatima being Holy women. But that doesn't defeat the purpose of the Prophet marrying many wives later on because it was a command from Allah سبحانه وتعالى. If you don'y trust anybody on these topics, that is entirely up to you brother.
  13. Because it was a command from Allah سبحانه وتعالى. From the lectures I've heard, they say that the Prophet only married because it was a command from Allah سبحانه وتعالى. And they also say that it wasn't out of desire. Same with the Imams, it wasn't simply out of desire. But you implied that if someone takes a second wife, then that means he doesn't love his first. Clearly this can't be true, or else the Prophet would have remarried in the presence of Khadija . No? I can't explain what I meant in words. Lol, when I can I'll let you know.
  14. Yes. You're right about marriage versus prostitution. I like the example of halal and haraam meat. Good one. And again, there is no problem with asking what makes the meat halal and what makes it haraam. He didn't say "mut'ah is not for sexual desires". He said "mut'ah is not JUST for sexual desires". There is a difference.
  15. Things are a lot clearer when compared to others. It shows the pureness of Islam. Sorry for using logic.
  16. Yeh I wasn't sure about the Prophet marrying widows or not hence I wrote "the last time I checked...". But thanks for clearing it up. :) The Imams are infallible, they did it to help other women and spread Islam seeing as to the fact that they are infallible. They didn't do it out of desire. That is what I was trying to say. The Prophet did love his other wives, but not the way he loved Khadija. This is mentioned in various ahadeeth. The jealousy thing...not quite what I meant. Maybe jealousy was the wrong word...never mind. But thanks for those saying anyway. :)
  17. Does it matter whether swimming clothes are tight or not? Either way, when you get out of the water the clothes are still stuck to you and show your figure :/
  18. Lol. I had a problem understanding Mut'ah and I was confronted with so many questions at uni and wasn't able to answer them. So I did the good thing and asked. :) Besides, there is nothing wrong with asking and understanding is there?
  19. Haha no need. It's a sister-to-sister duty.
