  1. Salam My current gig is as a stay-at-home mom, but my kids are going to grow up inshallah, and I'm a mom not a maid. I'd like to decide what kind of work to train for when my children are older. My background is land development civil engineering, but I've also worked in aquatic ecology a good bit, and I'm generally interested in and good at science and problem solving. Working in aquatic ecology, I became frustrated by the manipulation of data to satisfy clients. Also, my education is in engineering, so I tended to be given more management oriented, less science oriented work. I worked for many years in civil engineering, and I was constantly required to violate my ethics and principles for the sake of satisfying clients. Does an ethical kind of work exist? I love astronomy and planetary science, but after learning how intertwined these sciences are with war and weapons, I've decided the world has enough astronomers. And now I've got to decide what to "be when I grow up". In your opinion, what does the world need? And can that be done without ethical compromises?
  2. As salam alaikum, For some background: My mother is Hindu but more spiritual,doesnt believe in rituals etc., dad neutral about religions and a lot more spiritual, and brother is a downright atheist - I'm Muslim lol..and all of us live together so some of our discussions can be..well..interesting and disturbing.. Based on these discussions, I have a question: What is the purpose of creation and afterlife, as per Islam? I understand the purpose of our temporary earthly life is as a test to ensure jannah in the hereafter, through the worship of our creator....but then what? We enter jannah, live there...and then? Whats the point really? My dad asked me this...and I dodged the question coz I wasn't very sure on how to handle it....his view is that we don't know what happens after death, n there is no way to experience it, so how can you just believe something a book says? Mum believes in re-incarnation and the idea that the soul needs to be freed...but after its freed after several thousands of lifetimes, we don't know what will happen... My brother says: well we have no idea what happens once we die - so live this life fullest...following religion or rituals will not allow you to maximize your potential in terms of career and the rest coz it takes up too much time...in terms of creator and universe, he says "there's no way I would think that there is a creator who created this universe...its all physics and quantum mechanics" I ask him who created gravity, how did all of that exist? He says we are not qualified enough in the field of physics to know that...there may be 10 to 15 people in the world who can tell you what existed before the Big Bang and how it was created....but we are not at that level of education, but surely you cannot believe that a God created it...that would just make life so boring - imagine not being able to use your own critical analysis and science backed evidence of the existence of physics laws...and just coming to a conclusion of "oh one creator created all of this"...thats just plain silly and provides no intellectual stimulation in his opinion... They all see religion as being something just for people who haven't got a career or are not educated, to be happy and content with whatever little they have..in the false hope that there will be something better after death, so its ok if there's no money etc now...therefore they will not strive for the most, and will be more focused on religious things... All of them truly believe that religions are all man made to control and manipulate crowds who cannot think for themselves...but for critical thinkers like them (especially my super highly educated brother), it is a joke and very sad to think that you would need to live within certain limits set by someone (something) else....unless its the law of the state, noone else should have any authority over your being except yourself....he doesn't agree with a creator or soul or any of that...and immorality and morality to him is a social construct - the only things which all humans can agree are immoral are those that hurt others: murder, stealing, rape, and sometimes cheating but not always.....he can't understand why marriage is such a huge deal and premarital sex or LGBT is a problem...or the concept of chastity...according to him its all in the heads of people and society has formed it that way - in nature however, if we look at animals, there are many who are homosexual, and there is no such thing of premarital issues, or even issues with one night stands...so why do humans have to make such a big deal and complicate life so much? So based on the above viewpoints, there are many times I don't know how to answer them because I just can't deal with their perspectives...its inconceivable for me to ever think of the idea of not believing in a creator...I have pursued the quest for God since I was a kid...so I really need help answering some of these questions.. My belief is that life is temporary and it is there as a test for the hereafter....but what happens if we go to heaven, or hell for that matter...what is the purpose of getting gardens in which rivers flow? What happens after that? Yes our souls can get close to God, but then what? And ok God will punish those in hell, keep punishing them continuously, but then what? What's the point there? Why would a God do that anyway? What does He get by putting us in heaven or hell? These are the kind of questions I'm afraid to answer, but I really do need something to understand this..and I'm becoming curious of this as well..I'm sure there is a reason I don't know it yet, and I may even believe if Allah has said it is not for us to know, but that won't work with my family...so any help would be greatly appreciated in this matter... I know there are several different points - opinions on all would be great...but the most crucial is the purpose of creation, hereafter and the rest... JazakAllah...
  3. "On several occasions, threads have been opened by brothers/sisters who have legitimate concerns pertaining to private and/or personal matters; issues not appropriate to be discussed in an open Islamic forum where there are no age limits, and is not unisex" - this is the reason why the forum was created. these are posts we get: "wearing shorts" "Video games" "best soap" "shaving head or beard" there are many topics such as these and I feel they don't belong in the brothers section. When I post about men not allowed to be naked whilst having sex, I get told off for posting sex related questions. Isn't this forum meant for gender specific and personal questions, I think the shorts and video games posts are covering some posts which could be important but never seen. Can the admins introduce a filter? to only allow forum related posts on these forums.
  4. Please watch the whole video since his discussion on Mahdi A.S comes a few minutes later. (wasalam)
  5. Why is Islam the best religion? What is our position as humans? Whats the purpose of life? Why do I have problems? Why doesnt my prayers get answered? Why does Imam Hussain's sacrifice matter? Why is karbala so important? Why cant I see God? (wasalam)
  6. (bismillah) (salam) -I recently viewed Hassanain Rajabali's lecture regarding the "Justice of Allah" 3 questions: -Is there any earlier discussion regarding this topic? -Are there any ahadith's supporting this perspective or is it solely grounded upon the Qur'an? -If we will all ultimately attain paradise, including unbelievers, why is hell considered as eternal after all? If so please also explain this verse; ÎóÇáöÏöíäó ÝöíåóÇ áóÇ íõÎóÝóøÝõ Úóäúåõãõ ÇáúÚóÐóÇÈõ æóáóÇ åõãú íõäÙóÑõæäó162-2 If the approach to Allah's mercy is as such, many paradoxical questions will be answer without great difficulty. For those of you who have not seen the lecture;
  7. What's the main purpose of fasting? Plz, I need some strong and good reasons. Thanks
