  1. I have two questions which myself and many others have toiled with in regards to circumcision, the first based on Surah 95:4 Indeed we have created mankind in the best design. The second about the morality of circumcising a child. 1. Circumcision is a once in a lifetime occurrence wherein a certain area of genitalia from the male is cut off, based on the verse I mentioned if we were created in the best design why then do we need to take off a portion of our complete design. Certainly it can't be similar to cutting ones hair and fingernails as these are reoccurrences. 2. When de
  2. [MOD NOTE: The project of adding PDF links for every book will continue.] (bismillah) (salam) People want to discuss and learn. Here is a list of books, in no particular order, that might be useful. Akhlaq e-A'imma, Morals & Manners of the Holy Imams AS.

  3. As-salamunalaikum, I was wondering what people think about the moral traits, behaviour, akhlaq, of a person (male and female) towards other people in general life, IN THIS GENERATION. How do you think one should be with other people (Muslim and non-Muslim)? What moral traits and characteristics do you think are a MUST in this generation towards other people, and why? What kind of a person are you when you are alone, and what kind of a person are you when you are around other people? If there is a difference, then why is that so? How do you react when people judge y
  4. Social media, a world of responsibility with enormous numbers of irresponsibles... Let's not just become a forwarding machine ... When we just forward: At least what we can do is to check the source of a matter popped up on our screens. There are number of appealing messages floating everywhere on social media but we do no good by just forwarding these, we fulfill the sole purpose of its sender by passing it on. Knowledge is always a result of the efforts of only the knowledgeable people, not just everyone. Therefore least we can do is to check out traceable source if men
  5. At the time of Prophet Noah ((عليه السلام)) when the great flood occurred the population of the Earth was Ive read to be speculated around 750 million. Taking this into consideration out of those odd 750 million surely not all of those individuals could fit inside the ark as well as a great sum of those individuals were most likely not at the age of cognizance; therefore did they just die in vain, were they somehow preserved, or what was the case in regards to their “innocence” and the evident damnation they were facing, for surely Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) does no wrong to any living be
  6. Pernkopf's Atlas was a book of anatomy written by a Nazi during the third Reich and is renowned for its detailed diagrams of the anatomy of man, showing muscle and nerve illustrations unrivalled by any other book. Aside from being written by a Nazi, the diagrams and information were obtained from people dissected by Nazis during the Shoah (Holocaust). In a BBC article, a surgeon used the book to save a man's leg when she was unable to locate a nerve by conventional means. So, in your view, do you agree with the use of unethical methods to get to ethical results?
  7. As-salamu aleykom brothers and sisters, I am a medical student living in a Christian Orthodox country. It has recently come to my attention that one of my classmates is a member of one of the Freemason lodges in the country that I live in. Although the Freemasons are shrouded by mystery and conspiracy regarding their dajjalic symbols and ancient rituals that date back to the times of the Pharaohs it is clear that they do indeed believe in a "higher power" or a "supreme being" as they would put it. My question is a very simple one that I probably already know the answer to but how do we de
  8. The Economic Human. It is no longer in style to be a Moral, Ethical Human. Corporate mentality has taken over the human life. They see everything thru this framework.( Personal, Social, Political=Religion) Individual achievements, short term plan/success is promoted, blending in is desired and is essential for success. Personal and Religious events are planned with corporate look and feel. More like a annual investors conference. Any thoughts?
  9. Hi, I read that there is chapter of "Manners of Drinking Wine" in Shia scholar Nasir al-Din al-Tusi's book of Akhlaq-i Nasiri/The Nasirean Ethics. This chapter includes adab/manners/way of drinking, so Tusi expresses harms of alcoholic wine and he suggests moderation of drinking. In this book, this chapter is remarkable because of moderation of drinking. I wonder that, what is view of Tusi about alcoholic beverages? Also, is there any allowence of Shia sources about drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation? I know that there is allowence of moderate drinking of nabidh/drinks without w
  10. Salam, Is it okay to download a torrent for a software? I require Matlab for one of my units at University and it is very expensive If I were to buy it. What are your opinions? (from an Islamic perspective)
  11. Asalam-o-Alaykum brothers and sisters. This has to be the least talked about topic throughout the whole Muslim community, including the Sunni and other sects. We can simply look up matters and rulings for Abortion, Euthanasia, IVF, etc. That's all well and good, a well-known Mujtahid can easily provide answers for these matters. However, there are still some things that need addressing, as they will become common in the future. Matters not addressed or they are addressed briefly: - Cloning: I understand that Ayatollah Sistani provided an answer to cloning animals
  12. British Medical Journal (BMJ) Abstract: Objectives To assess the risk of on-screen death of important characters in children’s animated films versus dramatic films for adults.

  13. I believe there should be no reason to elaborate further, it is as the title asks; What is your concept or idea of bad? and how do you define it?
  14. One has a question that "How would you, as a Muslim man, react if your wife or daughter decided to remove her hijab?" My Humble Response was as follows: On Hijab One Since you have promised to appreciate sincere answers and try to be a better practicing Muslim, the following material is provided: Had we accepted that Allah, the most Beneficent Being, is our Creator, Possessor and all-Knowing, we would have relied on His absolute Wisdom and Will more than on our own intellect. For He is the creator of our intellect as well. His commands will be beneficial in all areas, parti
  15. I will be attending a talk this weekend which will address the Muslim's role (if any) in politics. I'm assuming the talk will limit itself to British politics, but what I've written below applies to (secular) Muslim majority countries as well. There are three aspects to answering this question: Religiously, we need to asses the role of one's world view viz his/her interaction with society The intellectual foundations of political activity of Muslims living in the West/East What I call the 'Clash of the Paradigms', which deals with the religious movements' failure to prov
  16. Salam alaikum I'm putting together a list of very concrete rules for living in any society. I'm not looking for religious rules or abstract ideas like "be kind". I'm looking for quantifiable absolute things like "don't take things that aren't yours". This is for my son who has autism. 1. Don't take things that aren't yours. 2. Don't look through people's things without their permission. 3. Don't hit people who are weaker than you. 4. Don't hit people who are stronger than you unless they hit you first. 5. Tell people "thank you" when they do something nice f
  17. http://www.the-tls.co.uk/tls/public/article1634311.ece As a theory of ethics Utilitarianism is very flawed, so yes, it's good to give money to guide dog charities, but the article makes a good point that we need to pay more attention to the impact our charity will have and try and give charitably in an effective way.
  18. salam I shall be reviewing a series of published/yet un-published books by his eminence Seyyed Kamal Al Haydari, on the topic of ethics. However this series is structured in such a way to aid academics and seminary teachers/students to use them as study guides, so most have exercises/questions at the end of each chapter. The series includes these books: 1) Our Ethics (Akhlaquna) - published 2) Self correction and refinement - unpublished 3) Truthfulness in intention, words and actions - unpublished 4) The spiritual dimension of worship - published 5) Ethics of visitations - unpublished 6)
  19. What occupies your mind can eventually influence your actions, so fill your mind with things that are clean, pure, and wholesome.
  20. From the 8th Imam (as) from his grandfather the Prophet (s): 6 acts are from Chivalry: 3 acts whilst travelling and 3 for other times. Muslims must have one programme for travelling and another for other times. Don't get into conflicts, eat what others eat and be easy going. After the journey don't speak negatively of your travelling companions. Now lets look at the 6 chivalrous acts: 3 for when not travelling: 1. Reading Qur'an - Our Sunni brothers read a good amount of Qur'an, we don't read Qur'an as much as we should do, especially if you are a Talaba. A Qur'an that is left close
  21. In the name of God. Salam. Dear brothers and sisters. While googling shiachat to browse it, I realized the search term suggestions of google. Here is the result on my pc: Ismailism or black magic, etc.? For God's sake! We have more important topics and discussions on the website. And I thought that before browsing shiachat, it would be better to access it while promoting certain subforums over other search terms, like ethics and self development subforum of shiachat. If you agree, would you please search for important terms like "shiachat ethics" before accessing the website? Th
  22. (bismillah) Salam, everybody. This is an absolutely fantastic speech by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf on food and our attitudes towards it. I sincerely recommend all of you to watch it and implement some of what he says in your own lives and witness the change! I speak to myself first. Enjoy! Take care. Mithrandir. ws.
  23. (Salam) A brilliant paper by Sheikh Shomali: (Bismillah) "In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful Prophet Muhammad: If Resurrection is starting and one of you has a sapling in his hand which he can plant before he stands up he must do so.[1] (d. 148/765) Imam Sadiq: There is no joy in life unless three things are available: clean fresh air, abundant pure water, and fertile land.[2] One of the most important problems in today’s world is the environmental crisis. It seems that this problem started when modern man stopped understanding himself as the vicegerent and trustee of the All-Me
