When you behave yourself to begin with, you do not have these 'problems.'

Really? And people, who are assigned to do amar bil maaroof and nahi anil munkir, are infallibles? They don't do any sins and are they completely capable of deciding just punishments for crime? The woman is the above video should just divorce her pathetic husband since he is financially dependent upon her. But no, she has to act like proper eastern wife, she won't divorce him and she won't say anything to him.

'& This world is not created for sports and play'

salam alykum wrwb,

@hasanhh

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSe6CcUrVcxGSPN-EKVqjz

The Verses in question and the following Ones indicate that the purpose behind creating the heavens and the earth is the creation of man and the purpose behind creating man is to raise him up on the Day of Resurrection, or else the creation of the heavens and the earth would be in vain. 

http://www.shiavault.com/books/an-enlightening-commentary-into-the-light-of-the-holy-qur-an-vol-16/chapters/20-surah-al-dukhan-chapter-44-verses-37-59 

this verse is used quite a lot to discourage sports people from partaking in sports all due to the words 'sport' & 'play' whilst Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is talking about another sense, a different meaning completely.

during my days living in the masjid, on Sundays there were Islamic lessons & secular community was having football Sundays, every Sunday. So whenever leave for sports the phrase will be like, 'am off to play soccer' & certain silly satans claiming allegiance will quote this verse to try & make you feel useless & worthless. It was disturbing but fine. alhamdulillah as i was convinced that what I was doing were His(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) sciences...

so now after a while, situation is like this 

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSqk1P4gTA7rQKEP154TS6

This above sense of sports & play is different from the 44:38 sense.

Now compare that play sense with this images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRuM8Nfmx83AFgzxfCQTaV

By the way, the tune is different now from those who researched theoretically and failed to apply practically, so now they contradict the creed.

salam alykum wrwb,

Your first referenced ayat, Sura 44 #38, the English word used as 'play' is la ibina. Which also occurs in Ayat 21:16. The la can be rendered as the English prepositions 'for' or 'in'. The use of the triliteral root lam ayn ba in these ayats is better rendered 'amusement' or 'entertainment.'

Similarly, Ayat 47:36 uses the same lam ayn ba root, and the triliteral root for "la ibun" is lam ha waw is also rendered as a 'diversion', 'pasttime', 'sport' and "idle stories". 

Ayat 21:16 uses "la ibina" as noted above.

So, in modern idiom, Creation is not a board game.

True, in every meaning. 

Also, what is important is to note the reference. Who does this refers to so for the achievement or attainment of amusement or 'being entertained' . Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) not bored, mankind to heed in a sense of accountability, ressurection  and time frame, this universe & the next hereafter beginning with that day...

alhamdulillah.

Partly, there is a sahih haadith, al-Bukhari l believe, which instructs that we do not fly kites. So, we choose our fun things carefully.

l went to three stores today.

At the first, two store employees were wearing masks. l was. Nobody else in the store or parking lot.

Went to the 2nd store. That employee was. No other customers and nobody in parking lot.

Went to the supermarket. 0ne man in parking lot was wearing a mask, but the woman he was with was not. ln the store, l saw one girl employee wearing a mask, but no other employees l saw were.

Then tonight, the news was showing parties in Russia, events in America where no one was masked. And the unmasked at these George Floyd protests and riots [these last 6 days].

My thought was what my father said several times: once a people loses their sense of physical well being then everything else goes with it.

lts been a few years since l Iast posted this on S.C, yet since the early 70s, Americans have gotten continuously more reckless.

l wonder which way eveything collapses . . . and anytime now.

Democracies almost always "collapse during emergencies".

"Citizen choices will shape the future."

"Global solidarity is the antidote."

"A different kind of war" is a metaphor. No human being is an enemy, fighting the virus, not people.

"We choose how this (pandemic) will end." Do we chose science or dictators?

The best way to change the world is to change ourselves. Just wanna remind you all of the good old saying, "be the change you want to see". 

If we want to see a world where there's no racism, let's address our own racist tendencies.

@ past 3am looking over at pictures of Afro-Iraqis enjoying this news, then there's this screeching satanic noise saying, 'no'. :ranting: angry things, why? Whatever, alhamdulillah.

Disagree again.

People do not change.

ln lsIamic idiom: there are no reverts in persoanlaity, Ayat 17:84, people act/work on their own manner/type/disposition.personality as they (basically) chose (but Alllah-(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). knows whose is on best guidance).

Things like etiquette, decency, and such already exist. Some people do not use them.

ESPN reported that boxing champ Floyd Mayweather will pay for George Floyd's funeral. 

Mayweather is the enemy of Islam, he might be your best ever, they do that to make you think they care whilst in reality Mayweather is a slave just like the very same police working for the same team. police kill, mayweather type bury, mind remain ignorant & it votes for that guy who makes his money through blood spilling rituals.

If you read surat munafiqun (the hypocrites) you will see that people change. Allah talks about them that they believed and then they stopped believing.

At the same time God even talks about prophet mohamed having been lost (dhl) and then he was guided. So in terms of God's guidance people can definitely change according to Islam, and what change is more important than that. 

That is because they believed, and then they disbelieved; so their hearts were sealed over, and they do not understand. Munafiqun : 3

In other words, they were mumin then became kafir

i think that Mayweather might have a weak spot for that guy because he supposedly was a porn actor, and Mayweather is into the business of pimping if I remember correctly

If Cinderella's shoe fit her perfectly at the end of the story, while did it fall off in the first place?

Try running in heels. You will have the answer. :p 

In one version of the story the ball is held on three consecutive nights and she manages to successfully escape at midnight the first two times so on the third night the prince orders the palace staircase to be coated with tar leading to the shoe getting stuck.

This won't work.

Think about it.

If more than one step gets coated with tar both shoes would come off. It has to be just the one stair or possibly alternate ones, but not all of them.

:thankyou:

Now why would any girl of even little merit want anything to do with a girl-chasing, playboy prince that is also a practical joker?

Answer: Because she is a dumb girl. :ranting: "How else to describe her?"

Unless this is the arachnid version of the story, this should be "both of them" not "all of them."  She is not necessarily a spider. Maybe a classic black widow, but otherwise not.

Do you know what a "practical joker is?

Some of the garbage l know they have done are: put goop on door knobs, block-up the rear axels of cars, tip over out houses.

The only one of these l ever thought was funny was my father and friends,back in the 1930s, picked-up and set between two trees a high school teacher's car. Then when she came back and saw it, they offered to put it back in the parking space.
