  1. The Zakat

    I'm not very familiar with the Zakat, its rules and regulations. I know it has been compared to the tithe, but I don't know how good of a comparison that is. Are there rules on how much should be given, who it should be given to, or how it should be distributed? Are there rules exempting an individual from paying it and what sort of conditions might those be? Any other pertinent facts you can think of would also be appreciated.
  2. A Troubling Verse

    This seems like such a horrific punishment that I found myself troubled reading it. Could anyone explain to me how disbelief merits having your skin constantly burnt off?
  3. Want To Learn The Arabic Alphabet?

    No, Arabic is a mystery to me.
  4. Salam

    That depends on how much you post. Don't be discouraged. It will be over sooner than you think.
  5. Want To Learn The Arabic Alphabet?

    No, I was not able to be here for the past few days because I was selected to serve on a jury. I will have to come back to this again. Perhaps this weekend.
  6. Ask A Jew Anything You Like

    That seems like a hazardous estimation to make. How is it you are aware of how most Jews behave unless you have met most Jews? I will not even hazard a guess as to how we are to quantify good character and manners in such a manner as to take the next step in such an estimation.
  7. Salam Alaykum

    Hello Shortcomer and welcome to Islamic Forum. I look forward to hearing from you. We even have a computer section here if the urge arises.

    He said he is from Australia, not an Arab country.
  11. Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatu Allaahi Wa Barakatuh

    Hello ihsaancourse and welcome to Islamic Forum. I hope you find the benefit you seek here.
  12. Salam

    Hello LullaLu and welcome to Islamic Forum. Thank you for joining. You only have to post more and you will be able to post links eventually.
  13. Conversation With A Non-Muslim

    I see. Then I can understand the basis of your argument. However, I think my warning still holds, for it is a naive Christian who would make such an argument, and a more knowledgeable one will not find it difficult to overcome the argument you put forward. But if this is the case, then you cannot compare it with new technology, for the latest technology is not ubiquitous, and so the comparison fails. And since this was the basis of your argument for Islam being the best, this would seem to weaken the force of your argument. It was only after you had made the argument that you then qualified your statement, and the qualification doesn't hold true for the things you were using to make comparisons. Doesn't that do harm to your argument? That wasn't the point of the comparison. I could have just as easily mentioned cheese. Heck, my wife is Korean, I could have mentioned kimchee, but I sought an example that was familiar to everyone. Or concrete. Concrete actually gets harder and increases in strength with age. It can take decades, even centuries, for concrete to fully cure and achieve its maximum strength.
  14. Salam

    That is real wisdom to know when you are or are not ready for marriage. You will save yourself and the woman much grief by knowing this. I hope you can achieve your goal of studying abroad.
  16. What Is Islam In The True Sense ?

    Sounds like a good explanation to me.

  18. Assalaamualikum

    Hello fauzullah and welcome to Islamic Forum. I look forward to hearing more from you.
  19. Refuting Allegations Against Slavery In Islam

    Wouldn't divine just be something "of God". Thus a divine command would be a "command from God". What do you think are the points that demonstrate the falsity of his comparison?
  20. Conversation With A Non-Muslim

    That won't work. I do not know of anyone who would say the second non-muslim line. Also, it is untrue that Islam is the latest religion. Mormonism, Bahai, and other religious belief systems are newer. Also,it is questionable that being newer automatically makes things better. Wine is not improved for being newer, and neither are many other things.
  21. A Troubling Verse

    I still do not know if this is true or not. I will take your word that it is as you say it is for the Egyptian military. And yet I still think people understood that the surface layer of the human body was particularly attuned to pain. It is too easy to adduce this for me to believe that they were unaware. I'm not sure I am seeing the very scientific description you are mentioning. Sorry.
  22. Refuting Allegations Against Slavery In Islam

    That is an interesting parallel. I am interested to see what response it will evoke.
  23. Your Interpretation Of The Following

    Thank you Dot. I should have been more careful about going off topic.
  24. Your Interpretation Of The Following

    Can someone pass into the next life still "searching the truth"? Or is it certain that Allah will reveal the truth to them before they die?
  25. Imuslim5 Has Entered The Building...

    I hope they are more than just meat, even if they are underdressed. We can all strive to see the humanity in others whether they are considered underdressed or overdressed. Westerners fail to do this too when it comes to Muslim women and it is wrong of them.
