  1. So I hear this argument a lot as a guy searching for a practicing Shia spouse: "Oh don't be so strict on the hijab, she can always wear it after." or here's a better one: "What? You don't think you have enough faith to bring her closer to Islam." (paraphrasing) and of course my favorite: "Oh well just because this girl does Hijab now doesn't mean she'll do it forever. She might wear the hijab but wear tight jeans and do lots of make up." (I call this the hijabi fashionista argument which is valid to a point). So my question is: am I crazy to have something as simple, basic and WAJI
  2. Hello! I wonder if darker or more grayer clothes are more modest than white or light colored clothes. I have always worn dark and grayer clothes when I'm outside, but my mother insists on me that I should wear more light colored clothes, for example like beige and white. The thing is that I don't feel confident wearing them because it adorns me, considering that a muslim woman should not display her adornments. Actually, I think lighter colored clothes can make anyone more appealing in contrast to someone wearing darker clothes. So my question is is it more modest for a muslim
  3. Original publication: A Passing of Time, blog Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum. One of the many reasons why I love living among the Shias in the Dahiya is some sisters hold majalis at their homes and invite neighbors, friends, and family. Majalis, is a gathering where we listen to a recitor who describes the events that unfolded of the martyrdom of the Ahulbayt. The third narration of the martyrdom of Sayyida Fatymah is taking place now and this specific majalis are entitled "Fatamiyya." Great reverence is given to Sayyida Fatymah. We learn from her how t
  4. Hello Shiachat! I have been away for awhile and due to recent news events, remembered Shiachat, curious about the reactions of Shiachat members to what happened in Paris. However, that's a different subject. This subject is due to a message a very kind member sent me concerning head coverings for women and modesty. I do see the value of dressing modestly. What promotes a well-functioning society however is not how people dress, but rather how they control their minds. That is why Job made this covenant: "I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman. For what is
  5. Salam I did the whole Google site search of SC. Wilayah has posted some very helpful material. I have also seen (you might have to copy-paste the URL) http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?hl=en&q=cache:3jMABu0m00cJ:http://www.imamreza.net/eng/imamreza.php . My biggest complaint with it is that the footnotes are not listed, so there are no references. When I get more time, perhaps I could try to Google each citation, but #Unsure. http://www.imamreza.net/eng/imamreza.php?id=9475
  6. Women... What is a Woman, rather, WHO IS A WOMAN?? During the pagan times in the annals of history, we see that while some tribes and nations used to think of female children to be a curse or an ill-omen, some used to practically bury the innocent girl children alive! However, as awareness spread, it came to be known that a woman is a blessing from the Almighty. Weather we call her "Rahmah" or "Laxmi," The decent way of addressing the Woman in English is to address her as a LADY. This lady is a blessing in her childhood, a glory in her youth and a mentor in her adulthood... As
  7. I am in the 11th grade, and a brother, and I have a friend at school who is a girl, who is in the 12th grade, and is Muslim, but is not very religious. For instance, she doesn't pray 5 times a day or 3 times a day, and she doesn't fast during Ramadan.....I am wondering if that is haram, because it says in the Qur'an (I forget which verse) "...do not approach zina.." rather than "do not committ zina" and many Muslim preachers and Muslims I know think this is haram....is there really harm in just being friends, or is this not modest?
  8. dear brothers and sisters Salam Alaykum. this is a long essay on the topic of Hijab I tried to cover new challenges in this article, your note are greatly appreciated. through your complementary note added to this essay we could support the aim of Islam. Hijab And Modern Challenges, Freedom of Choice And Gender Equality “And tell the believing women to reduce some of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which necessarily appears and to draw their head covers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their
  9. Asalaam Alaikum brothers and sisters! I had a quick question concerning hijab and marriage. I currently live in the United States, and I am an American convert, hamdullilah, and I had a question concerning Islamic dress. My husband tells me I dress too conservative (I wear an abaya, or skirts, and usually a black or grey hijab (similar to the Iranian manner), and he often tells me that I do not need to wear the hijab so conservatively. I respect his opinion, and I thank Allah he is a very understanding man, but I did not know what I should do. I personally enjoy dressing conservative, and
  10. (salam) I used to think that people innately respect modesty but a couple of years ago it occurred to me that the word 'modest' in the West no longer has a positive connotation. It used to I'm sure, but now it's just... nothing. "Oh you're trying to be modest? Oh okay good luck with that." You will never hear something being advertised as 'modest' in this day and age unless it is specifically targeted to Muslims or conservative Christians/ Jews. And now, amongst Muslims the emphasize is sometimes not even modesty, it's being a hijabi fashionista. Anyway I just started thinking about this
  11. (bismillah) Okay, I've been noticing a couple of things that have become quite common in the Muslim Community--in the East and the West. One makes me laugh because it's just super funny, and the other really grinds my gears. Let's start with something lighthearted. Ever been to the mall and suddenly this absolutely stunning woman just walks past you? She has enough perfume to asphyxiate a Komodo Dragon to death, her clothes makes Britney Spears look modest, the amount of make up on her face just makes you uncomfortable and her hair couldn't be more exposed. Yeah, that's happened to all of
  12. The Scientific American article posted below is a commentary on the paper Benefit or Burden? Attraction in cross-sex friendship by Bleske-Rechek et al. (2012). There's so much in this study that supports the Islamic attitude toward cross-sex friendships. =============================================== Men and Women Can't Be "Just Friends"Scientific American Researchers asked women and men "friends" what they really think—and got very different answers Can heterosexual men and women ever be “just friends”? Few other questions have provoked debates as intense, family dinners as awkwar
