  1. Salaam alaikum! I have realised a consensus on SC where many members claim that, a girl who says 'she wants to get married' is harshly criticized and is looked down upon with contempt in her society. But I want to take a different approach here and instead of starting another 'Marriage thread', and asking if Sisters would initiate their marriage I want to ask a different question. Let's say, Sisters, that you have a suitor who has made it obvious that he wants you & you believe he is the Mo'min one for you. Would any of you, Sisters, bravely confess your love for him to your parents? What would be the reactions of your parents and family back home (if you live in the West) ? Is it still taboo in your culture? I'm just curious to see if this taboo/norm has changed in our generation. Please vote and reply. *if you married, imagine before you got married? *if you're a brother, imagine confessing for a girl? Thank You & Ws
  2. Well, here where the problem is! I’m a young student living in Mexico, I was raised as a catholic, a few months ago I met a Muslim girl, this Muslim girl first caught my eye on the net, did tell all my matez how I found her attractive and she had something special, I'm deeply infatuated, I can't sleep sometimes thinking about her, she walks so confidently, amazing dress sense and has such a strong dominant face, we started texting out all the time, at some point I realised I had a crush on her, I found her to be a very beautiful, smart and spiritual woman, I kept quiet though, not wanting to kill off the friendship, at first he started telling me about the difficult relationship he recently finished off, she said there were just too many obstacles inbetween, I should mention she's somewhat older than me, how relevant is the religious aspect? If she's from a traditional family, a pre-marital relationship with a guy is a no-no, I think to devout muslims, only a musilm man may marry a muslim woman, I know spirituality is deep, it's our belief (or lack thereof) in a higher power and this belief influences our character, morals, and choices in life, it's not like a pair of sandals you wear and can switch out if it goes out of style, I want to spend my life with her, but become a muslim, how can do that? Advice please? Thankyou :)
  3. Love God through your actions, not sayings Date: 21/12/2001 A.D Shawal 6, 1422 H By: Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) One of the teachings of the Islamic doctrine that tells us how to demonstrate our belief in the oneness of God is by loving Allah and asking Him to love us. We love God, and except God to love us… Our relationship with God should be based on love. Even when we fear Allah we are not afraid of Him as we are afraid of tyrants. For Allah does not persecute or wrong anyone. We are afraid of Allah as we are afraid to lose the love of someone whom we love. In that case, we would try not to do anything that might offend him and we would rather do everything that he likes, to ensure that this love will go on and will keep getting stronger. Thus, we fear Allah by not disobeying Him, for we are afraid to lose His love, and consequently His compassion and forgiveness. Allah has told us in the Holy Quran about how to love Him. He said: “Yet of mankind are some who take unto themselves objects of worship which they set as rivals to Allah, loving them with a love like (that which is the due) of Allah only). Those who believe are stauncher in their love for Allah -Oh, that those who do evil had but known, (on the day) when they behold the doom, that power belong wholly to Allah”. They take other people as equal to Allah, and obey them. But those should know that Allah alone is worth this kind of love. After all, we might love people because of their beauty, knowledge strength or because they were good to us. If we turn to Allah, we find out that He is the one Who created us, and gave us life, beauty, strength and graces… He is the source of all strength, beauty, wealth…etc, and those who are strong or beautiful and the like have gained their attributes from Allah. Therefore, if we want to love other people because of certain traits that they possess, we should love God more for He is the One Who created them and gave them these traits. Therefore, praise belongs to Allah alone, and we love other people because they are nearer to Allah, we love the prophets, because they are the beloved messengers of Allah. Thus, love is for Allah alone, and any love for others is associated with the love of Allah But how do we love God? Loving God could only be manifested by obeying Him and His Messenger. For the Messenger’s instructions are those of God; Aren’t we commanded in the Quran to take what the Messenger gives us, and refrain from what he prohibits us. If you abide by this rule then you love Allah, for if you love someone you would obey him. Let us now read some of the texts that teach us how to love Allah, and who are those that Allah loves and those that He does not. When Jesus Christ (p.) was asked about what could be done to make Allah love us, He said” hate this world, you will be loved by Allah”. But Jesus (p.) did not mean that we ought to leave the world and stop earning our living. What he meant was that we should not let this world be our only concern in such a way that happiness in this world is the only happiness and misery in this world is the only misery. Allah told Muhammad (p.) while he was ascending to the sky that Allah loves all those who love Him and love each other and depend on Him. He also told His Messenger that Allah’s love has no end or goal. Moreover, Imam As-Sadiq (a.s.) said that Allah said: “There is no way that My servants (can show their love to Me, better, than performing the duties I ordained. The Messenger also told us that Allah loves those who are prudent and forgiving when they are angered. Imam Al Baqir, on his part, warned us that we cannot love Allah unless we hate and confront His enemies. He also said: “Who always mentions death –will be loved by Allah” For he remembers always that he is going to meet Allah. The Messenger told one of the believers who asked about how to become one of these loved by Allah and His Messenger that he should love what Allah and His Messenger love and hate what they hate. Allah loves those who “spend of your substance in the cause of Allah, and make not your own hands contribute to your destruction, but do good; For Allah loves those who do good” .Be good to people and learn the joy of giving. Allah loves those who like to give.He also “Loves those that true to Him in repentance and purity themselves” If you sin remember to turn to Allah for forgiveness, for He loves those who repent and promise never to go back to disobeying Him. He also loves those who fight for His cause and do not become weak if they meet hardships. “And with how many a prophet have there been a number of devoted men who fought (beside him). They quailed not for aught that befell them in the way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor were they brought low. Allah loves the steadfast”. Allah also loves those who endure whatever happens to them and who are always patient. He also loves those who are merciful and good hearted. He says to His Messenger in the Holy Quran “It was by the mercy of Allah that thou was lenient with them(O Muhammad), for if thou had been stern and fierce of heart, they would have dispersed from round about thee. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them upon the conduct of affairs. And when thou art resolved, then put they trust in Allah. Lo! Allah loves those who put their trust(in Him). By putting your trust in Allah, Allah means that you have to do all that you can to ensure that you will reach good results, and then if you become wary of the future, you should depend on Allah and put your trust in Him. Thus, putting your trust in Allah does not mean, that you sit at home and wish that everything you want will be sent to you. It is to be a hard worker, who does everything possible and then trusts that Allah will reward his work with the best results. Allah also loves the Just“But if thou judge, judge between them with equity. Lo! Allah loves the equitable”. And justice is absolute; it should be applied on all, even one’s parents “O ye who believed! Be ye staunch in Justice, witnesses for Allah even though it be against yourselves or(your) parents or (your) kindred, whether(the case be of) a rich man or a poor man, for Allah is nearer unto both(than you are). So follow not passion lest ye lapse(from truth) and if ye lapse or fall away, then lo! Allah is ever Informed of what ye do” even if it were with you enemies“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do”.Allah also loves those who uphold their unity“Lo! Allah loves those who battle for His cause in ranks as if they were a solid structure”. He wants the nation to freeze all its differences and be unified in any battle it fights against its enemies. Imam Zein al-Abideen(a.s.) says: “Allah loves all those who have sorrow in their hearts” because of their sins; “And every thankful worshipper”. Allah loves those who do good especially those who give charity in secret. Those whom Allah does not love are the aggressors “Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loves not aggressors”. He loves not those who engage in usury “Allah hath blighted usury and made almsgiving fruitful. Allah loves not the impious and guilty”. But He loves those who give in charity “The likeness of those who spend their wealth in Allah’s way is as the likeness of a grain which growth seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains. Allah gives increase manifold to which He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-knowing”.He does not love the wrong doers“And as for those who believe and do good works, He will pay them their wages in full. Allah loves not wrongdoers”. The wrong doers are anyone who behaves with others or even with himself in a way that offends their rights. Imam Ali (a.s.) said: There are three kinds of wrongdoing: One that is forgivable, one that it is not forgivable and the third kind is the one that could not be left unpunished (as though nothing happened) the ones that is forgiven are the trivial wrong doings that one hurts himself with. The one that is not forgiven is ascribing partners to Allah; while the third kind is the wrong doing of others. Imam Ali says: “Never try to wrong do anyone who does not have anybody to support him except Allah”. Allah also does not love the treacherous “And plead not on behalf of(people) who deceive themselves. Lo! Allah loves not one who is treacherous and sinful”. And the boastful “Allah loves not such as are proud and boastful”. Our prophet Muhammad (p.) says: “Allah loves most those who do good to others”. Thus Allah wants us to be faithful to Him and to love Him by obeying Him and refrain from committing sins. Furthermore, our love for Him should be manifested by loving fellow men and benefiting them, when Christ (p.) says that Allah has made me blessed wherever I go, he meant that wherever I went I benefited people. Let us use our energy and potentials in this life, we should not let it die with us, but we should give it to those who need it. Let us work “soon will Allah observe your work and His Messenger and the believers”. http://english.bayynat.org.lb/Miscellaneous/Miscellaneous_LoveGod.htm
  4. (bismillah) (salam) I hope all of you are in the best of health and Imaan. So, I think we all know of the aHadith that say that the love of Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) is a prerequisite for entering Heaven. But, I have also heard of aHadith in many Urdu lectures that list those who will not love Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) and one of these is an illegitimate child. I get why that they can't be judges, etcetera as a precautionary measure but what about loving Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all). I mean, it's not the child's fault whatever sins his parents. Plus, not being able to love Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) would mean that, according to the other Hadith, they can't also go to Heaven. So, is there any explanation to this or are these Hadith which make this claim dha'eef?
  5. Question says it all. How often do you do it?
  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi9zKM5wotM Please do share for the cause of Hussain (a.s)
  7. Salam! Here are the facts : I live in a place where there is not many Shia. The only shia I know who lives in this city is my family. Most people who live in this city are christians and some are sunni muslims (who do not know they are following wahhabism) who are ignorant about the shia and especially temporary marriages. Before becoming serious about achieving nearness with Allah ta'ala, I was a party goer, a constant drinker and I had sex with women I never married. During those days I also learned how to Pick up women, as I was what you call a pick up artist myself, i used to go out everyday talking to random girls, getting their phone numbers, and touching them. The skill of picking up women involves kino, or touching them inorder to escalate the relationship and eventually leading to a full close, or sex. I know that the general consensus amongst our scholars is that men are not allowed to mingle, or interact with women. But my question is that, since this is haraam, how am I supposed to get temporary marriages? Is it allowed to talk to different women with the intention of looking for someone to get married with? What are the do's and don'ts? Am I allowed to touch them lightly? am I allowed to flirt with them? am I allowed to invite them for coffee, lunch or dinner? Next question is since the muslims here are ignorant about the shia and its non-prohibition of temporary marriages, can I temporarily marry christians? If so, how am I supposed to tell them that I want to engage in temporary marriages with them? the requirement of consent from father or grandfather is only for women who are virgin right? so there is no need for this consent when it comes to non-virgin women? what about marrying Christians? is there a need for consent? If so, how do i tell their father or grand father that I want to engage in a temporary marriage with their daughter? (I asked this question because temporary marriage is something bizarre for christians and sunnis, and they might think im weirdo) On these questions above, I want to please get the opinion of the scholars you are following, please no personal opinion.. some other less important question which has been bothering me for some time, which is something I want all your personal opinion about.. There is no question that temporary marriage is allowed. On temporary marriage, why is it allowed? If it is allowed to get married within a time frame, even if it is just one day, is it not a kind of legal prostitution? I want mature and intelligent answers please, brothers, and please forgive me for my ignorance.
  8. How do you express your love to Allah swt? How much do you love him? How do you make your peace with your Lord? He loves you, do you love him back, How?
  9. (bismillah) Another great lecture series helping you ready for marriage and even helping those out who are already married. Worth a watch!
  10. (bismillah) One of my favorite speakers, talks about love and marriage. I highly suggest all those who are planning on getting married or in love to take a look at these.
  11. Four Candles were talking to each other: Candle-1: I am Peace, no one needs me, and it went off. Candle-2: I am Faith, no body believes in me, and it went off. Candle-3: I am Love, no body care for me, and it went off. Candle-4: I can Light the other 3, because I am Hope and I last forever. Life is tough, sometimes impossible to live, but never lose hope. I wish that your Candle of Hope lights all your Other Candles and keep them glowing.
  12. Salam, I have been reading topics on this site for quite some time but tonight thought I would make a post and maybe I will be able to get some help. As many people on here I find that finding a spouse to be very difficult. For me, it is not because there are not any proposals but rather the proposals being turned down for no reason other than my parents not wanting me to get married. I am 26 years old and have completed my studies so that is not the issue. You may think they have valid reasons for this decision of theirs but I cannot seem to come up with a single one. I am very mature and physically and mentally ready for marriage. Their reasons for turning people away and straight out telling them that they will not marry me have changed quite a few times. At first, their reason was because I am their "baby" and they want me to stay and care for them, Now the reason was because they fear I will get hurt and end up divorced due to the high divorce rate and my sibling getting divorced. I do not find either of these to be valid reasons. Not so long ago I walked in the house only to hear my mom on the phone telling someone "no, we are not marrying her off" and I later found out through my sister that it was a phone call leading to a proposal. I was very upset at that moment because this was not the first time and I knew it would not be the last time. It especially upsets me because I am never told by them or given a choice; this has been going on since I was in high school and even before my older sister got married. After that phone call I started to get very active in my local Masjid. I had always attended and had been attending this Masjid for quite a few years but at this point I became one of the head volunteers. I ended up meeting a brother at the Masjid who is also a volunteer and all our talking was always at the Masjid and about the Masjid but one day he asked me if I was married. I told him that I am not married, obviously this lead me believe that he wanted to ask for my hand in marriage. During this time I received another proposal and this time because they allowed for the family to come to our house but they made it perfectly clear that I was not to get married and did not give me a choice in the matter. After that incident and some time passed and the guy from the Masjid did not propose to me I started to distance myself from him until one day he asked what was wrong with me. I was honest and told him that I thought he would propose to me. He told me that he knows my parents would not accept and his father told him that he does not want to ruin the relationship between himself and my father. Apparently word had gotten around that I am not eligible for marriage. This really upset me and I found myself talking to this man more and more but nothing intimate. We were getting to know each other until one day he asked me to contract a temporary marriage with him and I said yes. Now I know my fathers approval is required but I felt they had left me no choice. My shatan was strong and my emotions overtook me. During the contract we were intimate but I remained a virgin. This was something that he wanted and put as a condition. He did not want to ruin me and this made me love him even more, He always put my feelings ahead of his own and I felt that he truly did love me. We had a month left in our contract when he just disappeared for a few days and I got very worried. So when Friday came along and I saw that he was at the Masjid I asked him what was going on. It turned out his father realized he was in some sort of relationship and told him that if it is a girl from the community that he would disown him. This man is 30; not a child. How can you threaten to disown him? So, he left me with a month left in our marriage. I did not know what to do, day in and day out I was crying. I didn't get any sleep, I wasn't eating all I did was cry. I was and still am in love with this man (I know it is haram). I still see him at the Masjid but our communication even about the Masjid has decreased a lot. It hurts, to see him and not be able to talk to him. I keep thinking could I have done something differently? Is this Allah's way of punishing me? Was what I did wrong? What are my options now? I have thought of not going to the Masjid but the Masjid is like my second home, I grew up around the Masjid and one week of not going makes me feel like I am missing a big part of my life. Any advice as to how to deal with my situation of marriage and how to move on would be great. Please I don't need anyone telling me what I did was wrong because I already have a hard time forgiving myself for going behind my parents back. But did they leave me a choice? Thank you. P.S. Sorry if this is too long,
  13. slam Alikom, Watch the sharing of roses at California State University Muslim students commemorating the birthday of Prophet of Mohammed (pbuh&f) in campus. by passing more than 1.000 white and red roses to the public. feel free to spread the word for the sake of Ahlulbayt (a.s)
  14. Salam, I was just wondering if the concept of soul mates exists in Islam? I was sunni before and no such concept existed for sunnis, but seeing that Ali (as) and Lady Fatima (as) were meant for each other, I was wondering if soul mates might actually exist.... If they do exist, whats the exact definition of it? A person who is a perfect match for you? I feel a little silly asking but I was just curious:p
  15. AsalaamOLaikum. First of all could you all please read surah Fatiha for my beloved Grandad who has passed away. My Grandad (Father's Father) whom I was very very very close too passed away five years ago, however all the memories live on and I still feel so close to him but all connection to him in reality has been cut off this makes me really upset and sometimes ill just sit there and cry. I do know that this does not help at all and dua is the best thing to do. I will just casually read Surah Fatihah and Surah Ikhlas whenever I do think of him. However, I feel this is not enough and want to increase my knowledge in this aspect. What can I do for the Dead - my Grandad? I really want him to go Jannah insha'Allah and for Allah to forgive all his sins (if any) How do I ask of this? And is reading Surah Ikhlas/Fatiha casually with him in mind helping him at all?? I truly love him to bits and wish he would come back alive, which is obviously impossible so I want to instead help him as much as I can. Please post your advice. :) Also could you increase my knowledge in can the Dead see us, hear us etc? Thank-you! Hope you are all well insha'Allah and enjoying Ramadhan as it comes to an end.

  17. What does it mean to love someone for the sake of God? I've heard people say that if you love someone for the sake of God, your relationship will last. I've never really understood this though. Does that mean, you actually love someone because you should, rather than because you want to?
  18. As-salam alaikum dear brothers and sisters... This is my first post on this site, so please forgive me of any errors and or ignorance I show of lingo used here or what have you. What is written below here, is not of any real philosophical nature, but more, words from my heart; a heart right now that is very heavy. I realize, given the status of the world right now, from environment to, what I sense as, the general apathy towards everything by humanity, their rudeness, unkindness, and other failings, what I am feeling right now does not qualify as any real problem, it is not truly important in the grand scheme, nor do I wish, through ego, to make it so. I write this because I feel alone, and I desperately need to find some solace. Always, I turn to Allah and the Divine in these times, and then to loved ones, but I need foster stronger ties to the Shia community, my community, and that is why I joined this site today. I lost a friend. And then several. They didn't die, al hamdulillah. They left my side, because I was discovered to be a Shia Muslim woman and not a follower of Sunni thought. Based on the nation where I have ties to, automatically, yet ignorantly, people assume I must be Sunni. I am not. I never was. And I never will be. I posted a video, the adhan from Karbala, Iraq, complete with the verse for Imam Ali, and the words that Prophet Muhammad, SAW, spoke for Ali that start, "...I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is the Gate...". As you know it is Ramadan, blessed Ramadan, and I posted this video to my Facebook page to truly post something that I found beauty in, something I loved, was moved by, etc. All month I have been posting inspirational and truly wondrous pictures of masjids, people, spiritual music, verses from the Qur'an, adhans from here and there, and even more so, the desperate need for true and strong Shia-Sunni unity; the return of the Ummah. All month long I had been getting positive feedback, from all sorts of people, mostly Sunni though, because most of the Muslims in my area are Sunni, but regardless, perhaps I was hoping that we had reached a point in time where people were more willing to embrace peace, more aware of the need for love in the world and the dismissal of the sinful plague of division. But this night, this past Saturday night, I posted this adhan just before Fajr and fell back asleep, no I am not trying to cheat through the days of Ramadan, I truly didn't feel well, so I rested again. I awoke at 11am-ish and to over 20 notifications on my phone. Many of the Shia friends I have had liked and commented positively on the video. But there was one guy, who ironically, is Iraqi by descent and went on a full blown tirade about the "evil and unauthentic nature" of this adhan and how wayward Shia thought is in general. He even went as far as to say, alarmingly stupidly though, "I would rather be part of the majority than the minority. Would you rather get a 95% (Sunni) on a test, or a 5% (Shia) on a test???" -- Spend no time refuting the percentages, I know they are wrong. You know they are wrong. He is a fool, a buffoon, an idiot. So what bothers me about such a silly, stupid man? Well...his mother is dying. Dying. And I have been one of the only people holding his hand, comforting him, encouraging him, seriously making dua after dua for him and his family and for her sake, Allah yer7ama, and I am absolutely stunned that in this moment, well for just this post, my posting of this adhan, could have brought out such disgust and resentment in him to FORGET all that I was doing for him, all the conversations, the tender moments (non-sexual please, this was a platonic friendship), the laughs, the tears...and just completely erupt, in a clearly brainwashed manner, bashing and railing against me, my friends, the Shia of today, he even went as far as to insult Imam Hussain and Imam Ali...I was just stunned. And hurt. I had missed much of the conversation due to my sleeping, so when I woke to these things and finally posted something very short and simple, compared to the long responses of Shia friends and his ramblings, I wrote..."I love it (sarcasm). Sunni Muslims fight against the Yazids of today, but then they rail against and hate on the Shia people...thus embracing Yazid. (His name), for the record, majority does not guarantee right or just." I then realized that he had un-friended me. Again, this is not about the details of the matter, and let me remind you that I know this is not an earth-shattering event, but it did get me thinking, and it very truly is about principle. A friend, a fellow Palestinian (but male) wrote, I am Palestinian and 100% Shia and then he wrote about his dismay over what this Iraqi had written, especially during Ramadan...he then said, "I guess this is where taqqiyah comes from". No. I refuse. For the sake of Imam Hussain, and Ahlul Bayt, I refuse to hid who I am. I know that from where I sit, this is easy. I live in no real danger, unlike my brothers and sisters in Bahrain for example, but no. I will not hide. I will not deny. I will not be scared or live a double life. I refuse taqqiyah. I refuse to let our people walk like ghosts, sliding through the Muslim, mostly Arab Sunni, world like jinn, never really showing our true selves, hiding our tears during Ashura and renouncing Muhammad's (SAW) family. I refuse. I have suffered many hardships in my life, when I was a child, and from where I sit now, I refuse to cower again. I wish I could, and I want to urge, scream to the heavens, all of my fellow Shia people to never accept living in shadow! We do not deserve this! And moreover, the very name and memory of Imam Hussain does not deserve this! I wrote on the bottom of the post, for all to see, "I will not hide. Live honorably and honestly or die in vain. Never will I hide my true Muslim path!" ...I suspect more people have pulled away from me. And this is why my heart is heavy. In the face of complete isolation, I will not break, and I dearly hope you do not either. I will not hide. I will not accept taqqiyah. I am who I am. And our path is the glorious path that it is. My brothers and sisters, it is time for us to throw off the cloak of secrecy. These people are meant to be our own (the Sunni) but they refuse our truth. This is injustice. And it must be challenged! These thoughts and feelings are my own. Much respect and due love to all the Shia in the world suffering at the hands of corrupt governments, oppressive lovers, friends and or families. May Allah shine His light upon you and may we all be free!!!!

The ‘Most examplary character’ (33:21) (68:4) ‘Established the correct Message of Islam’ (6:161-163) (39:11-12) Putting all faith and hope with his only Lord to worship and praise him alone.. ‘Worships only Allah’ (72:19-20) And ‘Puts total trust in Allah’ (9:129) Yet asking for no reward from the ever-lasting creator.. ‘Selflessly labours for Allah, asks for no reward’ (25:57) (42:23) Yet Allah showers down his mercy upon his beloved.. ‘Rewarded by Allah’ (68:3) (108:1) His honour and dignity already made perfect, ordered that nothing can disrespect.. ‘Believe, honour and respect him’ (48:9) (61:11) Then to send him abundant favours so that his prestige and nobility are only upheld.. ‘Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying.’ (33:33) Yet what use without love and obedience?.. ‘Love Allah and His Beloved Prophet more than anything else’ (9:24) ‘Follow the Commands of Allah and of His Beloved Prophet’ (33:36) Asalamu Alayka Ya RasulAllah ♥

    Happy Hour

    This is me and and Far's positivty blog.
  21. SALAM ALAIKUM EVERYONE, It's Johanna Hill and I'm starting this new thread because we are really in desperate need of your help. Please watch our video and help us to relocate from New York to a place that is less expensive. New York has become unbearable for us and please remember the quote below by Imam Hussain (A.S). Thank you and may Allah (SWT) bless you for all your help. Even one dollar helps, it all adds up. "When a poor man begs for your help, his pride is hurt. By letting him down, you are causing another blow to his pride." -Imam Hussain (as)
  22. A Pakistani dentist whom works in Lebanon, wants to marry my cousin. He got permission from his mother, but his father wants him to marry a Pakistani girl in Kashmir. The dentist, his father, and even his brother got into a huge fight and there was injury involved! His own brother chopped off his pinky! My cousin loves him very much, but now she is very afraid for his life. She doesn't want to leave him as he sacrificed his finger for her, but at the same time she fears if she does marry him, his family will kill him. What should she do? Her brothers said they will defend him as they have guns and back him up. But why are Pakistani fathers so set on marrying their sons off to Pakistani girls only?
  23. Salaams All, I am just about to get married and a thought crossed my mind How long after the wedding day is it acceptable to make love with your wife? Many people will say, 'your sex life should be based on love'. And I agree, it should be But, what if I'm ready to on the wedding night but my wife isn't? I would ask her, but, I'm scared that she'll think I'm some sex-driven pervert for even thinking of making love on the first night, Help please!!!
  24. Love, the deepest human commitment, the force that defies empirical examination and yet is the defining and most glorious element in human life, the love between two people, between children and parents, between friends, between partners, reminds us of why we have been created for our brief sojourns on the planet. Those who cannot love—and I have seen these deformed human beings in the wars and conflicts are spiritually and emotionally dead. They affirm themselves through destruction, first of others and then, finally, of themselves. Those incapable of love never live. Love, when it is deep and sustained by two individuals, includes self-giving—often tremendous self-sacrifice—as well as desire. For the covenant of love recognizes both the fragility and sanctity of all human beings. It recognizes itself in the other. And it alone can save us, especially from ourselves. Love is an action, a difference we try to make in the world. To love that which should unite us requires us to believe there is something that connects us all, to know that at some level all of us love and want to be loved, to base all our actions on the sacred covenant of love, to know that love is an act of will, to refuse to exclude others because of personal difference or race or language or ethnicity or religion. It is easier to be indifferent. It is tempting to hate. Hate propels us to the lust for power, for control, to the Hobbesian nightmare of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Hate is what people do when they are distressed by uncertainty and fear. If you hate others they will soon hate or fear you. They will reject you. Your behavior assures it. And through hate you become sucked into the sham covenants of the nation, the tribe, and you begin to speak in the language of violence, the language of death. Love is not selflessness. It is the giving of one’s best self, giving one’s highest self unto the world. It is finding true selfhood. Selflessness is martyrdom, dying for a cause. Selfhood is living for a cause. It is choosing to create good in the world. To love another as one loves oneself is to love the universal self that unites us all. If our body dies, it is the love that we have lived that will remain—what the religious understand as the soul—as the irreducible essence of life. It is the small, inconspicuous things we do that reveal the pity and beauty and ultimate power and mystery of human existence.
  25. (bismillah) In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the most merciful. May He ward misconceptions from our souls and help us attain certainty. ßóÊóÈó Úóáóì äóÝúÓöåö ÇáÑóøÍúãóÉó He has decreed upon Himself Mercy. (6-12) The question is based upon the attribute of Mercy. It is commonly known that Allah has created humanity out of His Mercy. Therefore, Since we say Allah has created everything out of His Mercy, I raise two questions: 1) Is the attribute of Mercy created by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì? 2) If it is a creation, why did Allah allow it to partake in His actions? i.e. Does Mercy govern Allah or does Allah govern Mercy? If Allah governs Mercy, then Allah does not need to create because of "His Mercy." If Mercy governs Allah, then there is a flaw in our understanding, which needs immediate attention, of the Most High, Most Merciful. Please, any opinions or elaborations are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. (wasalam)
