Salam, A jurisdiction would set a law Forcing women to wear hijab. Another jurisdiction would set a law Banning hijab in schools/universities/workplace etc Aren't they both extremes? Aren't they both wrong? As far as the Qur'an teaches us, there cannot be compulsion or forcing in Deen, ﷽ لا إِكراهَ فِي الدّينِ La Ikrah Fil Deen There is no Compulsion in Religion. (2-256) Isn't forcing women to wear hijab counter intuitive? Wouldn't such a law push people away people from the faith simply because they're being forced to adhere to it? Just as some western jurisdictions' banning of the hijab had created a backlash of Muslims holding onto it even more. Your thoughts? Please also take a second to answer the poll to gauge the views.
Salaam everyone, I was actually wondering about a Shi'a girls stance on marriage. I mean, I was wondering if say a Shi'a girl says her consent to the marriage 3 times to the niqah, but her niyyah isn't for it, meaning she doesn't actually want to get married to this person, does the marriage still count? If she says yes outwardly, but no niyyah inside to say yes, and doesn't want to, but is being forced to say yes? Especially in the case that the girl does not plan to have any "relations" with this person after the forced marriage anyway. Btw, for that, say if the marriage is valid, is it necessary for the girl to do acts of marriage with this person? Or if she doesn't want to she doesn't have to? I would appreciate any rulings or any information that could be found on this. Jazakallah & FiAmanAllah
Personally, I find the the concept of mutah very very hard to consume. For one, it is a choice. Secondly, I cannot even imagine my daughter's virginity being taken by some temporary contract like this. The best thing about Islam for me is how much it protects and values the purity of its women. How much it emphasis for not just men but women too to lower their gazes and keep good intentions about everything. Then there is this Mutah. How.. I mean how is this even acceptable? It sounds so wrong. Maybe i dont know much about all this but I cant seem to grasp this concept of this being right at all. A temporary marriage? Isnt marriage supposed to last forever between soulmates? A lasting bond? Are you not gonna be with your husband in heaven? Arent couples made in heaven? Women's virginity is such a sacred thing. Her Iman and every single thing. I like how its a choice for the woman too but this type of marriage contract. Nah uh? Never gonna happen. Also there is that fact that it is not acceptable in every type of Islam. In all honesty it sounds like 'loaning a women' fine yeah i get that that woman will have all the rights of a wife and will be respected and all but still for a time? its like loaning or hiring to be cruder despite the fact that woman gets a choice in it. What bothers me is how its acceptable. If someone could explain why its significance and its rulings that would be great. Still however no matter what I strongly think that not many will agree to this kind of proposition ever if they are pious. I mean a man taking responsibility for a woman in a marriage.. its such a sacred thing. A bond its everlasting. How would a woman feel if say oh i will be 'not married' when im like 40 or something how does that sound? Sounds weird to me. Besides that, most of the proofs that I have read from Shias claiming that Mutah is right are unclear and are vastly disagreed upon. Even using common sense being a third party, when I see a religion so conservative and pure like Islam I will never believe that their Lord will allow women to just be married for a term. For their virginity to be taken like this and then after a time that matrimonial bond with that person vanishes.
The thread starter's post has been removed due to a request by them. Their question has been quoted just below: An atheist who knowingly rejects the truth can't be that good because: 1, They have been ungrateful to their creator and the creator of every other good thing. The source of all good. Even the atheist's ability to be good is from God. 2, Humans have been inherently designed to work better when they believe. A lack of belief causes humans to malfunction. Read: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235010653-religious-ideas-make-atheists-into-better-people/ If an atheist rejects God knowing the above evidence, then they are committing an action which makes them more susceptible to doing wrong. Such a decision is immoral. 3, Belief brings peace to people. An atheist is being immoral by making people disbelieve in a caring God and an afterlife. Consider that belief is strongly hard wired in the fitra; thus it takes a lot to disbelieve.
