    Umm Kulthum bint Muhammed Umm Kulthum was born six years before Prophet Muhammad’s prophethood. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) married Umm Kulthum to Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) after her sister Ruqayyah had died; Umm Kulthum was the second daughter of the Prophet who married Uthman. For this reason, Uthman was called the Posessor of Two Lights. Umm Kulthum remained with Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) until Umm Kulthum died in Shaban of the ninth year after Hijrah, although she did not have any children from him. Umm Kulthum was buried next to her sister Ruqayyah (may Allah be pleased with them both). Umm Kulthum was born six years before Prophet Muhammad’s prophethood.

    Has anyone on here been treated super badly by the Ummah? In what way? How do you overcome the sense of betrayal and the sense of being "kicked out" by your own Ummah? I asked some advanced questions about the deen and other sects of Islam (not because I wanted to join the sect, I just wanted some clarification about their teachings and how to do dawah to them) and I was treated like a spy/troublemaker. I ended up in tears... no one has ever treated me that way before and everyone involved knows I've only been a Muslim for a year and I have Autism. Now I understand the quote: "I'm glad I found Islam before I met the Ummah." It's super discouraging. In all my life I've never been treated so badly. (P.S. to the mod(s) I accidentally posted this first to the controversial issue section not knowing it was about fiqh. I'm sorry about that.I'm new here so I don't know my way around this site yet My bad.)

    Islam has taught us live a balanced life with moderate attitude. No one is asked to take extreme actions in Islam. One can observe that the true Muslims are living a peaceful life. Therefore associating any type of radicalism with Islam is unjustifiable. Sacred teachings of the Holy Quran have taught to live in peace.

    The Christian Zionists tend to be Evangelicals. They are very dangerous and are behind many of the conflicts around the world. They believe that if anyone turns against Zionism that Allah swt will punish them not realizing that the present day israel is not the real israel and was made by fake Jews.

    As-Salaam alaikum, In ayat 16 of Surat Sajdah of the Holy Qur'an (32:16), Allah Ta'ala says:-- "THEIR SIDES FORSAKE THEIR BEDS." This is in reference to those servants of Allah who engage in the voluntary prayer(s) in the night. This is the same prayer about which the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "Hold fast to night prayer, for it was the way of the righteous before you, a way of drawing closer to your Lord, an expiation for wrong deeds, and a shield from sin." [Tirmidhi]. "Qiyam" literally means standing up, particularly after sleeping, just as we say... 'YUOM AL-QIYAMH' for Day of Judgement as we rise to stand before Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, after much rest in our graves. That is why sleep is like a daily death, and Qiyam is to rise from it. Whoever stands the night in prayer, Allah will make easy for him in standing on the Day of Judgement, as some of our 'Ulam observe. Sayyadi Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, also advised, "Whoever loves to find the long standing of the day of Resurrection less difficult should show himself to Allah in the darkness of the night prostrating and standing, fearing the Hereafter and hoping for Mercy of his Lord." In view of this, we should all resolve to be offering the voluntary night prayer, otherwise known as Tahajjud, ... every night, for the rest of our life in this world. Best Wishes.

    The Quran is in every detail the unique and miraculous text which was revealed to Muhammad fourteen centuries ago. Not one word of its 114 chapters has been changed over the centuries.The Quran deals with all topics which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures.

    Hello, good day and Assalam-Mualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatu Have you ever wondered where Ayatul-Kursi came from? Or why people say it's powerful? Well, I only heard this when I was 20 years old, but all those other years were wasted because my belief wasn't powerful enough. A long time ago the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) asked one of his Sahaba (close friend) to watch the goods at the camp for the evening whilst everyone rested. This was surely an easy task and the Sahaba complied. Unfortunately, during the even a thief came and attempted to steal something, lucky enough, the Sahaba caught him and threatened that he was going to call the Prophet (SAW). However the man began to cry begging the Sahaba that he needed to steal something so he could get food for his family. Being the softhearted man he was, the Sahaba let him go. The next morning the Prophet asked the Sahaba if anything occurred so the Sahaba explained the commotion. The Prophet (SAW) told him he should be on guard this evening as well. When evening came, the thief appeared once more to try and steal something and you can imagine what happened next. Yes, the thief got caught and pleaded that his family was suffering of hunger. The Sahaba feeling even worse now decided to let the thief go. The following day the Prophet (SAW) asked if anything happened. So indeed the Sahaba explained once more. The Prophet (SAW) then told the Sahaba he would stand once more on guard duty that particular evening. So he did. The Sahaba waited that evening and surprise!! The thief tried to steal AGAIN! So the Sahaba feeling he had no alternative now, told the thief he was taking him to the Prophet (SAW). However, after pleading so unsuccessfully thief told the Sahaba he'd give him a few secret words so POWERFUL nothing could ever touch him, not even the thief if he recited those words. So the Sahaba was SHOCKED and was really really eager to hear what these magic words were. Indeed the thief taught him these words, and in return he was set free, promising never to return. The following day the Prophet (SAW) wanted to know what happened and the Sahaba explained that the theif taught him these magical words that can protect anyone from anything. The Prophet (SAW) then explained that the thief was indeed SATAN(The Devil). Shaytan is the most evil influence to exist yet HE gave us protection against him!!! Ayatul-Kursi can protect you 100%...... only if your belief in it, holds 100% firmly..... Thank you and Jazak-Allah.

    Travelling on a plane was a man who was proud of his intelligence. When he discovered that the person sitting next to him was a worker, he suggested they think up some riddles to pass the time. "If you can’t answer mine, you must give me $5," he said. "And if i can’t answer yours, I’ll give you $5, OK?" "NO!" answered the worker, "I’m tired and i want to sleep" "Well a better idea" said the man intensively, "If you can’t answer mine, you must give me $5 and if i can’t answer yours, I’ll give you $10," "Alright" the worker said after a little thinking, "And i will go first". The man agreed. The worker then asked: “What has six feet on the land and only three feet when swimming?" then continued "I sleep, when you find the answer wake me up!" "OK" the man said. He thought for very long time about this, but reluctantly he had to concede defeat. When they reached their destination he woke the worker up and said "here's your $10; what’s the answer?" "I don't know", said the worker; "here's your $5."

    The Objectives of the Islamic Penal System Part 5: A discussion of what the legislation of these types of punishment seeks to bring about in a society. The Objectives of the Islamic Penal System The Islamic penal system has many objectives, the most important of which are as follows: The First Objective: Islam seeks to protect society from the dangers of crime. It is common knowledge that if crimes are not countered with serious punishments, then society will be in grave danger. Islam seeks to make social stability and security widespread, making life in society secure and peaceful. It has made this consideration a platform for action, legislating punishments that will discourage crime. This purpose has been articulated by the following verse that discusses retribution and its effects on society: “There is (preservation of) life for you in retribution, O people of understanding, that you may become pious.” (Quran 2:179) If the murderer, or any other criminal for that matter, knows the extent of the negative consequences for himself that his crime will cause, he will think a thousand times before committing it. Awareness of the punishment will cause the criminal to abstain from committing the crime in two ways. The criminal who has already been subject to the punishment will most likely not return to the crime again. As for the rest of society, their awareness of the effects of this punishment will keep them from falling into the crime. To realize a general effect from the punishment, Islam has established the principle of publicly announcing when it will be carried out. God says: “…A group of the believers should witness the punishment.” (Quran 24:2) The Second Objective: Islam seeks to reform the criminal. The Quran often makes mention of repentance in association with the crimes that it deals with, making it clear that the door to repentance is open whenever the criminal abandons his crime and behaves properly. It has made repentance a means of waiving a fixed punishment in some instances, like the punishment for highway robbery. God says: “…except for those who repent before you take hold of them. Then know that God is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Quran 5:34) God says regarding the punishment for fornication: “It they both repent and mend their ways, then leave them alone. Verily, God is the Accepter of repentance, the Merciful.” (Quran 4:16) God says after mentioning the punishment for false accusation: “… except for those who repent afterwards and makes amends, then verily God is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” God says after mentioning the prescribed punishment for theft: “Whoever repents after his wrongdoing and makes amends, then verily God will accept his repentance and verily God is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Quran 5:39) This objective is seen more frequently with regard to discretionary punishments, whereby it is incumbent upon the judge to take into consideration the circumstances of the criminal and what will insure his betterment. The Third Objective: The punishment is a recompense for the crime. It is undesirable to treat a criminal lightly who threatens the security of society with danger. The criminal should receive his just recompense as long as he is pleased with taking the path of evil instead of the path of righteousness. It is the right of society to be secure in its safety and the safety of its individual members. The Quran has asserted this objective when mentioning a number of punishments. God says: “The thieves, male and female, cut off their hands as a recompense for what they have earned...” (Quran 5:38) “The recompense for those who wage violent transgression against God and His Messenger and who go forth spreading corruption in the Earth is that they should be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet should be cut off on alternate sides or that they should be sent into exile…” (Quran 5:33)
