  1. Arafat

    As salaam alaykum Yes the fatwa does state that... you can follow your country and go by the sighting of the moon. But I still see a difference between Ramadan and Hajj... Ramadan is everywhere across the globe, and Saudi Arabia doesn't hold the 'monopoly' of it, so to speak. So if they declare such day to be the first of Ramadan and in our country, we didn't see the crescent the same day, we are not obliged to follow them. They do it on their day, we do it on our day. But Hajj (and not dhul hijjah) /Arafat happens only in Saudi Arabia. There is no Hajj in America, Europe or Asia. The pilgrims are in Saudi Arabia. So I find it a little odd, for example, to be fasting the day of Arafat when the pilgrims have already left the place and have even finished slaughtering their sheep's (depending on the time difference). Or to be slaughtering a sheep and celebrating Eid when the pilgrims are still on the mount Arafat or coming back from it. To me, it is a strange feeling. I don't have the excuse of not knowing which day it is for the pilgrims because of modern technologies. So it's not like I don't know. This is my own personal point of view, that is not better nor worse than others. The fatwa was for information and to clear my own understanding... and I felt with this we could best understand other point of views. Insha'Allah.
  2. Arafat

    As-salaam alaykum... I found this fatwa which makes things clear. Insha'Allah. (you are not allowed to post links yet)"http://############Islam-qa######/index.php?ref=40720&ln=eng"]Source: Islam Q&A[/url]
  3. Arafat

    As-salaam alaykum The day of Arafat was Friday 29th. The day does not change to suit the day you are going to be celebrating Eid. It has happened. alHamdulillaah. You will need a scholar to give you an answer to your question. Insha'Allah.
  4. Eid Mubarak

    As-Salaam'Alayum May Allah make this Eid a source of happiness for the Muslim Ummah, accept the Hajj from the Pilgrims, and return them home safely. May He shower His mercy upon us all... Ameen.[using large font size is not allowed]
  5. Saddam Hussein executed in Iraq [using large font size is not allowed] State TV has been showing footage of Saddam Hussein's atrocities Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has been executed by hanging at an unspecified location in Baghdad. Iraqi TV said the execution took place just before 0600 local time (0300GMT). It was witnessed by a doctor, lawyer and officials. It was also filmed. US troops and Iraqi security forces are on high alert for any violent backlash. Saddam Hussein was sentenced to death by an Iraqi court on 5 November after a year-long trial over the 1982 killings of 148 Shias in the town of Dujail. Two co-defendants, Saddam Hussein's half-brother Barzan al-Tikriti and former Iraqi chief judge Awad Hamed al-Bandar, were also expected to be executed. The BBC's Adam Brookes in Washington says the Bush administration will see the act as turning a page in Iraq - a demonstration that Iraq has a sovereign and democratic government. A US statement is expected. However, the Bush administration will be keen to portray the execution as a matter purely for the Iraqi government and its court system, our correspondent says.

  8. Confused!

    :D Dear Brothers and Sisters. I pray you are all in the best of health and strong Imaan. :D I have a dilemma for which I could use your help with. :D I have been introduced to a Brother for marriage purposes. He adheres to the Book and the Sunnah and is actively involved in Da'wah. Has good knowledge of the Usool ud-Deen (Fundamentals of Islaam). All these attributes are very pleasing for me, :D. As I want a Husband who is strong in his deen. He had been previously married and now divorced. I am single. We have been in communication and discussing matter between ourselves. The problem is that even after 4 years of being divorced he is still in love with his ex-wife (he does not even call her ‘ex’ when he said this). He is very vague about the reason for divorce and has actually said that he loves her so much and cannot forget her. He has kept tabs on her and says the she hates him… but gives no explanation as to why. I was quite reluctant to consider a Brother who was divorced… maybe because I thought these issue may occur, but I had no idea that they actually would until I met him! So, I am confused. I have prayed Istikharah and I’m still not clear. I don’t have any Brothers to seek advice from and I find this situation very difficult. I am hoping :D that some of you may be able to impart with some experience and advice. Your Sister in Islam.
