  1. Is This Shirk?

  2. Is This Shirk?

    :sl: I'm confused. Is being embarrassed to go the Masjid for some reason shirk or are you talking about the second part of my sentence? And other minor shirk actions?
  3. Is This Shirk?

    So being embarrassed to go to the Masjid is not shirk, (for example having bad clothes, sitting in chair). So shirk is ONLY worshipping other gods/making partners with Allah and minor shirk is showing off-doing a deed for someone else?
  4. Is This Shirk?

    If someone doesn't go to the Masjid because he is embarrassed to sit in a chair (because of an injury) is that shirk? Also, what are excuses for not going to the Masjid? What if one is able to walk to the Masjid yet is impaired in praying properly? He still has to go?
  5. Mocking Innovators

    :sl: Indeed. Mocking the innovator might keep him on his path of innovation more strongly!
  6. Mocking Innovators

    Mocking innovators Question #9057 Question : I know that mocking the Sunnah or any part of Islam makes a person a kaafir. But what if someone mocks the beliefs of people of bid'ah? For example, a person jokes to his friend when it's time for salaat to make fun of the Murji'ah : "Oh, we don't have to pray...it's in your heart, remember?" but he prays, understanding that it was a joke to show the riduculousness of the Murji'ah beliefs. I know that false talk is a sin, even in joking, but is this (above example) kufr akbar because the joke involves a major part of Islam, although it was aimed at bidah and not Islam?. Answer : Praise be to Allaah. Mocking the kaafirs for their kufr or the innovators for their innovations (bid’ah) is permissible because they enjoy no sanctity or protection with regard to their sin and evildoing in which they regard as permissible that which Allaah and Islam have forbidden. But this is only so long as the mocking does not go beyond the framework of dignity and truth, and it is not taken as a usual habit, and the jokes do not outweigh one's seriousness. But what we are warning against has become the habit of many people. If one is to mock them, it should be for their going against the Sunnah, not for their different ways of dressing, walking, etc. But is it a sin? The correct view is that it is not a sin, rather this is something that it is permissible to talk about and joke about. The fact that the sin that we are mocking does not constitute kufr that puts a person beyond the pale of Islam makes it even more appropriate to joke about their sin, because by forsaking the truth and following falsehood, they have mocked the sanctity of Allaah. Al-Laalkaani narrated, with isnaads, some reports from some of the salaf concerning such cases: - He narrated from al-A’mash that Ibraaheem said: “There is no gheebah [backbiting] concerning one who follows bid’ah.†- He narrated that al-Hasan al-Basri said: “There are three who have no protection from gheebah, one of whom is the one who follows bid’ah and is extreme in his bid’ah.†- He narrated from Hishaam that al-Hasan said: “There is no gheebah in the case of one who follows bid’ah and one who commits evil.†- He narrated that al-Hasan said: “There is no gheebah in the case of the people of bid’ah.†- He narrated that Katheer Abu Sahl said: “It is said that there is no sanctity for the people who follow their whims and desires.†(I’tiqaad Ahl al-Sunnah, 1/140). The example which is mentioned in the question, which is, “Oh, we don’t have to pray, it’s in your heart, remember?†is not kufr because the one who says it does not intend to mock the prayer, rather he intends to mock these words that go against sharee’ah, and to show that they are false. The point is that making fun of something that the innovators say is not haraam and does not constitute kufr. But we do not encourage denouncing the innovators by mocking them; rather we should debate with them in the way that is best. Your concern when debating with them should be to guide them to the Straight Path. Allaah said to Moosa and Haroon when He sent them to Pharaoh (interpretation of the meaning): “And speak to him mildly, perhaps he may accept admonition or fear (Allaah)†[Ta-Ha 20:44] And Allaah knows best.
  7. Muslims For Flying Australian Flag Outside Mosques

    :sl: "Not only is it a unifying symbol but it also shows that we're all Australians and the Australian flag comes before anything else," he said. Islam comes before anything else. I am suprised a "Muslim Leader" would say such a thing. And really, when do you EVER see a flag on/in/around a Masjid? EVER? Especially in Muslim countries? The only suitable flag would be the Testimony of Faith. We go to Masjids to worship, not to display our allegiance to a country. :sl:
  8. He Was A Singer, Now A Muathen

    :sl: He looks great in his new beard. Inshallah we can repent like him. Saw this a long time ago. I believe he was from an "American Idol" like show in the Arab world called "Star Academy." :sl:
  9. :sl: Its not a masjid. Its a room thats a classroom where students pray. :sl:
  10. Forming An Islamic Democracy

    :sl: Think about it though. Look at elections in other countries, does the best Presidential/Prime Minsterial candidate win? Or is it the one with the most money? The most attack ads? The best PR officer? The best "connections" and bribes? Also if the Muslims arent as good as they were before, how do you think they'd vote in an election? For the leader who would be harsh and just like Umar or lenient and diverging from the truth? From what I understand about the Islamic political system, the Caliph is elected by a group of well-known community (national) leaders (ie Shaykhs, Businessmen, Politicians etc) not the ordinary layman who doesn't know the best person to pick. The question is, where is this "Shura" today? The world isn't as small and doesn't have as less people. Who would participate in the Shura? :sl:
  11. :sl: No, not a child, practical adult actually. He makes fun of those in Salat and makes lewd jokes to deliberately make those people laugh and consequently lose their prayer. :sl:
  12. :sl: Is that person a Murtad(apostate)/Kafir? I already know about those who actually make fun of the Salat (such a person has apostated), but what of those who make fun and jeer at those in Salat, and try to make them laugh (and consequently break their prayer)? :sl:
  13. Can One Make Dua Againts A Muslim Opressor?

    :j: So you cannot make a Dua against a Muslim opressor?
  14. :sl: If someone has wronged you can you make Dua against him even if he is Muslim? And what are the rulings on fighting in Islam? One should not hit the face? What about self-defense? :sl:
  15. Iran Legalizes Prostitution

    Ruling on Mut’ah (temporary) marriage Question: What is the ruling on mut’ah marriage? Answer: Praise be to Allaah. Mut’ah marriage means that a man marries a woman – either Muslim or from the people of the Book – and specifies how long the marriage will last, for example five days, or two months, or half a year, or many years. The beginning and end of the marriage are specified, and he pays her a small mahr (dowry), and after the specified time is over, the woman exits the marriage. This kind of marriage was permitted during the year of the Conquest of Makkah for three days, then it was disallowed and prohibited until the Day of Resurrection. This was reported by Muslim (1406). The wife is the one with whom one stays on a long-term basis, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “… and live with them honourably …†[al-Nisaa’ 4:19], but in the case of mut’ah a man does not live with the woman for long. The wife is the one who is called a wife in sharee’ah, with whom the relationship is long-lasting. She is mentioned in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): “Except from their wives or (the slaves) that their right hands possess, ¾ for then, they are free from blame†[al-Mu’minoon 23:6] – the latter (a slave whom one’s right hand possesses) is not a wife according to sharee’ah, because her stay is limited to a short time. The wife is the one who inherits from the husband, or from whom the husband inherits, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “In that which your wives leave, your share is a half if they have no child…†[al-Nisaa’ 4:12]. But the woman in a mut’ah marriage does not inherit, because she is not a wife, since she spends such a short time with the man. On these grounds, Mut’ah marriage is considered to be zinaa (adultery or fornication), even if both parties consent to it, and even if it lasts for a long time, and even if the man pays the woman a mahr. There is nothing that has been reported in sharee’ah that shows that it may be permitted, apart from the brief period when it was allowed during the year of the conquest of Makkah. That was because at that time there were so many people who has newly embraced Islam and there was the fear that they might become apostates, because they had been used to committing zinaa during the Jaahiliyyah. So this kind of marriage was permitted for them for three days, then it was made haraam until the Day of Resurrection, as was narrated by Muslim, 1406. From al-Lu’lu’ al-Makeen min Fataawa Fadeelat al-Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Jibreen, p. 41. As you can see these so called "marriages" have nothing to do with Islam.
