  1. Alsalam wa'alaikum everyone. The reasoning for opening this topic is not to discuss the right or wrong of being LGBT, but rather to understand any Islamic ruling that may apply to reading a fictional book featuring a lgbt couple. I recently started reading a book, and about half way through I realized that the book features an lgbt couple. Is it haram of me to continue reading? I would assume that because its just a book it would be okay, however I would rather be safe than sorry. Also, what about a movie featuring an lgbt couple? In addition, since we are on the topic of lgbt, two of my friends who are also Shia Muslim have recently come out to me as members of the lgbt community. Is it wrong of me to want to support them? They are good friends of mine, and I want to know the best way of handling this situation without it becoming haram.
  2. Is husband allowed allowed to hit his wife for no reason???
  3. @GreyMatter Salam Alaikum, Aight guys, real talk, get in here and advise please. I want to see logic in wedding expenses. Now every single thing in my life that I do, I always research lots before hand and commit to it when I see rationale and logic behind it. And for the love of God, I can't justify wedding costs. I am Pakistani if its relevant and my future to be in-laws are kinda elite and would like a good wedding. Good wedding is pretty $$$. Wedding is where I live here in Canada. Now profile time, when it comes to personal finance, I am responsible. I always pay my bills on time, I never incur interest on credit cards at all, and (try to) max my my RSP (retirement fund) and TFSA (tax-free planning) in investments. I work for financial markets/investments for a big bank, so I know all about the financial markets, trends and all the stock stuff. (I have asked all investment questions in personal meetings with Maulanas, so lets not diverge on the legality of it here) So I know finance. Now I spend a lot of money on leisure, sporting events, food, limited edition clothes, hype celebrity sneakers, I like fashion for some crazy reason and ship limited editions from all over the world - now I do save decent amounts. So I do spend on leisure, my leisure! Kinda living the good life within my financial limits, but living MY life, not for anyone. Also the millennial question, we are getting priced out from owning property in a major metropolitan city, student debts, times are hard compared to those our under 30 age in 70s, 80s, mid-90s .. etc, economically speaking. So while I put this out here, I can't justify spending on weddings. What's an event? $15-20k? or more? Like c'mon man, I cannot feed well-to-do family friends/cousins, do decor on the hall, give gifts to family and stuff when I am a relatively a new graduate in a decent working job. Mashallah my work and investments are doing decent, but I can't upfront all this money on a wedding, it doesn't benefit me, it benefits guests who I just meet once a year tops. Who cares about them? I rather buy a fun-driving car for that money, or down-payment some condo (still a stretch) for my long-term benefit than spend 15-20k on ONE NIGHT! Q1) How much was your wedding out of your or your parents pocket? What is considered or below-averge a normal wedding? Please tell me what the costs are? Q2) People will talk, who cares, not me, I would rather have a decent bank account than to spend that no guests, as you know, today's economical climate doesn't justify spending 20k for anyone under 30 unless someone's parents are ballers. So tell me, is my rationale correct, what should i do? Any advice is good advice.
  4. What makes a Muslim youth leave his life in Marseille, London, New York or Kosovo behind and join a group like IS/Daesh? What does Daesh promise, socio-politically speaking, that the materialist liberal West can't offer? It offers the same utopia that the zionist state PR firms advertise to jewish youth from Brooklyn, North London and Krakow. The attractiveness of being able to BE the 'ideal' Muslim, living in the 'ideal' islamic state, ruled by a descendant of the Prophet, is no different to the effective propaganda of ideal jewish life in occupied Palestine. Muslim youth living in the West no longer have to put up with islamophobic oppressive intrusive and humiliating governments. they can fly Syria or Iraq, look and behave they way they like, and become the 'TRUE' representation of what it means to be Muslim. the added bonus is that Daesh is in a state of war with anybody who refuses to join this utopia, and the reward in the end are 72 pure virgins etc.. A simple life and death, without the headache of juggling multiple identities, switching one off and turning the other on depending on the situation. Being a muslim youth does not mean anything to the liberal materialist westerner. he doesn't care about your religion or your God. he's got problems up to his nose, and instead wants someone to propose solutions AS A HUMAN BEING, or at least as a Brit, or American. Keep your faith at home and tell me how to resolve the rising homelessness, alcoholism, drug abuse, crowded jails, broken families, abused children, millions on food stamps,.... Multiple factors have reduced Muslims in the West to the insignificant entities they are. A major one, in my opinion, are the establishment scholars who push the individualistic, tribal behaviours and passive worldviews. Instead of a collective and united socio-political force, providing perfect examples on the ground on how to resolve issues i mentioned above, we have a pakistani mosque, an arab mosque, a turkish mosque, a wahabi mosque, an ahmadi mosque, a shirazi circus and no socio-political representation with power to influence discourse and policy. Daesh on the other hand, has done just that. It has given YOU the Muslim youth yearning for social impact, and true representation, to live your socio-political utopia in the caliphate and reach your perfection.
  5. The Circus: How British Intelligence primed both sides of the 'terror war' http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/circus-how-british-intelligence-primed-both-sides-terror-war-55293733
  6. Go Hezbollah! Hezbollah ambush kills 32 Islamist fighters in e. Lebanon. Al-nusra terrorists tried infiltrating into Lebanon to blow themselves up and set up car bombs to kill innocent civilians. http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News/Lebanon-News/2013/Dec-23/242100-hezbollah-ambush-islamist-fighters-in-e-lebanon-kill-32.ashx#axzz2oGTom48I And people ask, why is Hezbollah involved in Syria? If Hezbollah was not involved particularly in the border area, these terrorists would have snuck in to blow themselves up and kill innocent civilians on a daily basis long ago.
  7. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2014/01/israel-ariel-sharon-dies-at-85-201411231338785176.html The biggest pile of trash to walk this earth in the 21st century has died at the age of 85, following eight years of permanent incapacitation. Sharon quickly rose to fame in Palestine after participating in Hagana terrorist acts, but it wasn't until the 1982 invasion of Lebanon that his name was reckognized worldwide, much due to the Sabra & Shatilla massacres that Christian militias carried out against Palestinian refugees under the supervision of the IDF. In the late 80's, he started a very deceitful political campaign and founded the right-wing Likud party. In order to gain popular support from Israelis, he visited the Temple Mount (Al-Aqsa) in the year of 2000 to get the Palestinians to commence the Second Intifada. TL;DR version: The biggest pile of trash to walk this earth in the 21st century has died.
  8. Is music haraam? Do you listen to it? I remember a year or two, calling up a maulana and asking if listening to music during Ramadhan breaks a person's fast or not, and he said that it didn't... So that would mean it isn't haraam right? I know this topic is quite divided, but what is your opinion? Growing up in a house where my dad loved music, I have also grown to love it, but I'm not addicted to it.
