  1. Hey guys, I know this topic is hot and a bit sensitive but I am currently plunging into utter confusion. I would like to comprehend what these verses are in fact saying. It seems, in light of the tafsirs and classical dictionaries, that the verses here are referring to the semen which proceeds from between the backbones and an area being either between the two breasts, between the breasts and the collarbones, or the chest. Now these are the dictionaries, mostly classical, I have used to deduce the meaning of the words in the verse: Lisan Al Arab by Ibn Mandhoor, Kitab Al-'Ayn by Al-Faraheedi, Al-Kanz Al-Lughawy Fi Al Lusun Al-Arabi, Al-Qamuus Al Muheet, and Lane's Lexicon which is the only one, amongst those whom I mentioned, who put loins as a definition for sulb. Now the tafsirs that are in favor of this conclusion comprise almost all of them. These are the exegeses that I have referred to: Shaykh Al Tusi's Al Tibbyan Fi Tafsir Al Quran, Tafsir Al Saafi by Al-Kaashaani, Majma' Al Bayaan and Jaami' Al Jawaami' by Al Shaykh Al Tabrasi, Tafsir Nur Al Thaqalayn by Al-Shaykh 'Abd 'Ali Bin Jum'a Al-Huwaizri, Bihaar Al Anwar Fi Tafsir Al Maathoor Fil Quran by Al Majlisi, and no I did not forget Tafsir Al Mizaan by Al Alaamah Al Tabatabaei. The only one tafsir that I am separating is Al Amthal Fi Tafsir Kitab Allah Al Munazzal by Al-Shaykh Naasir Makarim Al Shiraazi especially because it is a bit different from others. It collects the most famous interpretations of the verse in explaining the ayaat. However, in my humble opinion, the interpretations were not quite convincing in there. Excluding the last tafsir, it seems that there is a consensus on the general definition of the words in these ayaat. Anyhow,I guess the point has reached. I hope somebody can help me out in this issue. You will probably get most of what I have mentioned here from books to dictionaries: http://www.hodaalquran.com/bookscat.php?sec=2&mn=1 http://www.baheth.info Thank you and waiting for your replies.
  2. Salamun alaikum, Am I subject to khums in the following context, I study in a university abroad and my parents take care of my expenses from university fees to pocket money. However, I do not get a fixed salary; money is sent to me whenever I require it. With regards to the following context while taking into consideration that I have never paid khums before due to my ignorance, I have three questions: 1) Must I pay khums in such a context? 2) According to Ayt. Khamenei, if I have never paid khums, do I need to pay the khums of all the years since my bulugh? Thank you very much in advance, Wassalamu alaikum we rahmatullah wabarakatuh
  3. Is there a legal statement supporting your claim (i.e. copyright laws are not violated when the video is for personal use exclusively) , it would be of great help, thank you.
  4. (bismillah) (wasalam) In Youtube's Terms of Service, it states that "You shall not download any Content unless you see a “download” or similar link displayed by YouTube on the Service for that Content." Based upon that, is it considered forbidden in Islam to download videos or a video's audio from Youtube exclusively for one's personal use? I was perplexed over this matter and I always had second thoughts when I wanted to download latmiyyat from Youtube. Thank you for your answers in advance. Wassalam
  5. I was off these days, thank you all for your answers, very informative. Will send an email immediately to my Marja.
  6. Salam, I have a question concerning the ritual bath (Ghusl). In the previous years, I used to do Ghusl without washing my back completely; only a small portion of it was washed. Are all my previous Ghusls considered void and I have to repeat all my prayers? If possible, post a fatwa from sayed khamemei too. Thank you wassalam.
  7. La fata illa ali, for some reason, the two evening prayers are commonly known as al-isha'ain. Thank you brother Dar'ul_Islam your post was very informative.
  8. Thanks for your answers Replicant. Is this an obligatory or a recommended act depending upon the maraji'?
  9. Should one recite audibly (jahr) or quietly (ikhfaat) in the following positions in their daily prayers? 1) The sujdatain (prostration). 2) The tasleem. 3) When saying the mustahab phrases asta'3firullaha rabbi wa atubu ilaihi and sami3a allahu liman hamidahu. If the sujdatain, for example, should be recited jahr in dhuhr and asr prayers and not in maghrib, isha, and subh prayers, then please include that information. This was confusing for me as I was only able to find information about the ruku' and the people in my masjid, some recite the sujdatain jahr and some ikhfaat. I'm confused. Thanks for the help brothers and sisters.
  10. (bismillah) (salam) Yesterday, I was debating with a friend about the issue of temporary marriage. We managed to get over the point that it is permitted in Islam. However, he raised the issue about the future implications of mut'ah on nikah. He argued that one who engages in mut'ah and in the future marries a different person will have a burden on his back. This burden is put when one has to mention to their partner their past sexual relations and whether or not they are a virgin. Furthermore, this argument implies that one has to confess their past sexual relationships, what is the Islamic standpoint on this issue? If yes, then, will that confession not discourage the partner from getting married due to not being chaste? If no, then, should the person lie and confess that they are a virgin or should they just find another partner that will accept this condition? (wasalam)
  11. Hmm XD I think this would be a great research paper :D Because everyone writes about the bad effects of perfectionism on social acceptance but not on God's acceptance. Maybe a cause and effect paper.
  12. Because the bad forms of perfectionism promote such disorders. I'm not associating anything bad with Islam. I am thinking that Islam promotes high achievement rather than perfectionism, what do you people think?
  13. Ooh Thank you Gypsy for your reply very much. That was the point of confusion for me whether that 3-d in all its forms was considered haram or not. Thank you :D Maybe if a male watches it for the half-dressed girls then definitely it is Its martial arts features though are really cool :P
  14. Thank you for your speedy reply replicant. Very helpful post, I will still be open for answers in case of any objections. I was thinking it was haram due to thinking that the first image of the video game is 3-d, would it be considered 3d or not was what confused me.
