  1. For The One To Be Lost

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Jizakallah khair to all of you who replied, mashallah. Sawsan-Alright ukht, though i think looking out for no. 1 will be hard for me...i'll try though :D Batoota-aww, didn't mean to make you sad sis, i'm sorry :D jizakallah khair for the info and dua, mashallah. Chrism-yes i'm taking tablets but they ain't doing much good, inshallah will see doctor as soon as i get time. Leila-honey...alright, jizakallah khair habibti :D insurrection-I'll go down to the pharmacy inshallah...jizakallah khair brother. O my lord give those amongst your slaves who take their time making dua for their brothers and sisters for your sake. Give them good health, strong iman and prosperity in this dunya and akhirah. I hope you all become amongst the dwellers of paradise firdaus :D
  2. People Are Just Jealous

    Dema, This is like the merry go round minus the fun part :D I agree with what Yoaz stated above....Furthermore, it isn't about me not being able to comprehend what your portraying, i can, it is rather i fail and so do the majority of the people who replied to see the main point behind it. Who would deny that people can be jealous? but it takes two to tango.... Perhaps do you have a solution to end this extreme critism and jealousy?
  3. Do You Think...

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, I had a feeling you'd say this....those who enter paradise will be able to consume alcohol (which doesn't give you a hangover but mere pleasure) so will ye then deny that thy lord has forbidden alcohol in this dunya? Worshipping the creator will not be put upon the dwellers of paradise, yet will ye deny that thy lord has commanded us to worship him regularly and remember him? The last day is the day when you can't do anything to change your amal, your fate awaits you and all rules in dunya will be something of the past. Allah (swt) is all-knowing and wise, so don't let the shaytan deceive you because these false security will do us nothing in akhirah but displease Allah (swt). Allah (swt) knows each soul better than they know themselves....
  4. Do You Think...

    Wa alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, I agree with brother Rofi's comment, it is not our place to speak upon something we hold no knowledge upon. Becoming opinionated can lead to sinning...seek an imam who has the qualification to give answers to such questions. ma'salamah
  5. Help This Sister..

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, At that age, nothing my mom said made any difference; I was like her perhaps even worse ya’rabb. So being stricter on her will just make it a lot worse, they just get smarter, the more rules you come up with, the swifter and cunning they become. The best thing to do is just make her think, tell her stories about the deen. NEVER tell her what to do, suggest all ideas, make it seem as though they are merely suggestion and then leave for her to dwell on it before she gets the chance to make a comment. Also seeing as she is an MSN addict (come on, that thing literally tells you to come online, how can anyone resist *ahem* :D ) why not get some sisters from here to talk to her? Just be like why not meet more people out there…it can be very influencing. If she has other sisters to talk to her, it will no doubt help and Allahu’"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/glossary/glossary_a001.html#alim"]Alim[/url]. May Allah (swt) guide us all to the straight path. Hope everything goes well brother.
  6. Islam in Somalia

    Asalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, The story behind the formation of ‘midgaans’ is just so pathetic wallahi, if I a bucket seriously I would knock sense into them but seeing as violence isn’t the best way of going about it then that is not an option. The midgaans are pretty and so are others in Somali, just as any country, you have beautiful people, ugly people or how ever you like to phrase it. The thing is they are all Somalians, that should be it but some people just prefer this whole division which has destroyed the country itself. May Allah (swt) guide us all. Undercover, lol, you’ll find a wifey when Allah (swt) wills…hold your horses :D. The youth are seeing beyond this prejudice views alhamdulillah but there are still those who are actually are racist without knowing it because at home it has become a norm, ya'rabb ehdeena siratul mustakeen.
  7. People Are Just Jealous

    Wa alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Let me ask you something....do you know the meaning of the word 'jealous' and 'scapegoat'? I'm not trying to seem patronizing in any way and forgive me if i come across that way but by saying i prefer using this terminology while you use the other is saying the words mean the same thing....are you implying that? :D Just as some muslims may be in denial to saying they are jealous of the west as you phrase it, you seem to be in denial that your generalizing. You see how it works? Really no point in debating here, there is no debate, merely you keep repeting the same thing which no one has even dismissed. There may be some muslims who are jealous, do you know any humans who don't get jealous? :D no, didn't think so. So what did you prove? that humans are jealous? it is a fact. Ya'mar ukht.
  8. Y Do I Get That Feelings....

    Asalamu Alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, The shaytan tries every possible delusion to make us stray and follow what is wrong. By deluding us that our sins are forgiven decreases our fear in Allah (swt) and this false security the shaytan builds works to keep many deceived. It is just the shaytan akhi. Read this: The prophet (pbuh) said: ‘Whoever says: “Astagfirullaha ladi la illah ila huwal hay’ul khayumu wa’atubu elayhi.†“I seek Allah’s forgiveness, beside whom, none has the right to be worshipped except He, The ever living, the self-subsisting and supporter of all, and I turn to him in repentance.†….Allah (swt) would forgive him even if he was one who fled during the advance of an army. Remember the wrath of the creator and the punishment of those who turned away from the true path akhi….the jahannam is their reward, remember the creator and ignore the whispering shaytan. I hope everything goes well brother :D

  10. To All The Non-muslims

    Nomad84, You seem to have the sense of arrogance that those who do are native arabs are incapable of being good at arabic or even perfect as any native arab. You should know that that does sound very absurd and arrogant, perhaps that was not your intention. For those who do find faults it is merely because one does not understand why the ayat was revealed, the translation in depth or what it is in reference to.
  11. People Are Just Jealous

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Seeing as this was addressed to me I might as well respond to it. Yes, you’re generalizing, no one dismisses the fact that some Muslims do show hatred and anger due to ignorance but it is scapegoat, not jealousy. I’m not saying this merely because I prefer the terminology ‘scapegoat’ but it is because I have actually asked many of those who show this attitude and they didn’t say it was because they are jealous. So do you have statistics to prove your hypothesis? I’m going on evidence, not heresy nor emotional attachment to the issue. It seems that you state a lot of things without having prove, I’ve heard and seen certain westerners who critise Muslims a lot. The question is how naïve are you to just blame one side of something without prove? I’m not saying Muslims could never be jealous, heck no, jealousy is part of human nature but the image you created doesn’t fit in with the word you use (jealousy). Ifti made a point that is true; there was a time where I was only surrounded by non-Muslims, until now the majority of my friends are non-Muslim. Yet I still have Muslim friends, this gives me the chance to look at both situation without assumption and doing the whole point the figure at a certain candidate and say ‘Hey you’re a jealous Muslim because you don’t agree with westerners’ you can’t accuse someone of jealousy if they don’t agree. So tell me, have you felt jealous of westerners? I have to say ‘Tom’ has made the best post so far! No joke. No one is jealous of anyone, aren’t there something more worrying in life than one’s jealousy? Who actually lacks this emotion? If yes, are you human? It is normal to be jealous….we’re humans…I just wouldn’t go around accusing of people without evidence.
  12. Trying To Understand You

    Hi, The other questions have already been answered so I’ll save you the bother of repetition. The simple answer is no, they may slightly differ in terms of culture; this is because Arab culture differs to the culture in Indonesia just as cultures from Africans will differ from ones held by Japanese. However, the basic will be similar; Islam is a way to bring people from different ethnic background into a common ground. A Muslim is a Muslim, your ethnic background means nothing, it is merely just a symbol of God’s power in creating us so unique and different. I hope that helps :D .
  13. People Are Just Jealous

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Dema I understand that you hold these ideologies about how us Muslims are jealous of the west and so on. So please when you make accusation such as the ones above bring forth evidence, and don’t go about generalizing. The west is merely a terminology used for countries in the west. Why anyone would be jealous of a country is really beyond me, Africa and Australia, I can comprehend because of the beautiful weather they have etc, but a country to be jealous of? Hmmm. However, rephrase your comments as it doesn’t prove anything. It is called scapegoat…everyone falls into that trap, nothing to do with jealousy. Also look at the point made by akhi Ifti because that really does it project the flaws in your point. Nonetheless I understand what you say but you have expressed it in a more confusing and inaccurate way by generalizing.
  14. Ahm Is Going Away

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Your absence will be missed by many brothers no doubt. May Allah (swt) grant you what your heart wants that is halal and keep you in good health and strong iman.
  15. Benefits Of Surat Yasin?

    Wa alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, ‘Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people.’ [bazzar] (S.Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Tafsir-al-Sabuni Vol.2) The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur’an ten times.’ It has been reported by Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said that there is a sura in the Qur’an that intercedes for its reciter and forgive its listener. Know! It is Sura Yasin. It is called ‘Mu’amma’ in the Torah. It was enquired, what is Mu’amma? The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) it embraces the person with the goodness of this world and removes the dismay of the Hereafter.’ (Hashiya of Tafsir Jalalalayn , pg 368) On the authority of Ma’qil ibn Yasar from the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace said, ‘Recite Yasin on your deceased.’ (Abu Dawud, Nasa’I,Ibn Maja) [imam Nawawi, Al-Tibyan li-Hamalati’l-Qur’an pg 168] The benefit of reciting surat Yaseen and its significance The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “The heart of the Qur’an is Ya Sin. No one recites it, seeking Allah and the next life, except that they are forgiven. Recite it for your dead.†[Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, Ibn Maja, and Hakim, who deemed it rigorously authentic (sahih)] Imam Ghazali explained that it is called the ‘Heart of the Qur’an’ because the soundness of faith rests on accepting the Resurrection and Standing before one’s Lord for Reckoning, and this Sura affirms these meanings in the most emphatic of ways. Others said that it is because it affirms all the central bases of faith emphatically. According to some masters of the science of Qur’anic commentary, including Imam Ahmad Ibn Ajiba in his al-Bahr al-Madid, its heart is, ‘Peace!’ A word from a Merciful Lord [Qur’an, 36.58] He explained that this points by way of indication to the meanings of closeness with Allah, whose means is the Qur’an and through the Qur’an is it achieved. And Allah alone gives success. "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.sunnipath(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/"]source[/url]
  16. People Are Just Jealous

    Wa alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, It isn't jealousy if you observe carefully, it is sometimes to use them as a scapegoat. If one diverts from the problem caused by certain people and make others aware of the sins made by others which is worse it is likely that they will forget the problems faced by the Ummah for a short period. It is another flaw we need to work really as an ummah, nothing more...
  17. Girlfriends

    Asalamu Alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, Brother i'm sure you are capable of distinguishing the right from wrong but isn't the satan so appealing? I mean haven't you ever yearned to indulge in something haram knowing it is haram yet there is that voice saying 'ah but others say it is allowed' and guess what brother. Man-kind are ungrateful and are selfish but that will end, the day we are buried 6 ft under. No girlfriend to aid you, no mother or father to hold your hand. What will you plead to Allah (swt)? Do you truly believe you will become amongst the paradise dwellers merely on perforing what is in the five pillars of Islam? Who will save you from your own destruction? No one...But Allah (swt) is ever oft-forgiving and merciful to his creation. Every second we are alive is another chance for us to repent...seize the moment, if you don't, the moment ain't yours. We don't always 'Think' we delude ourself otherwise though. I'm not gonna tell you what you already know. Every being will only speak for themselves....i'm merely saying guidance is there for a reason. Allah (swt) forbids such act for a reason, do what you please but stare at the clock ticking away, one second closer to death, one moment closer to your fate....how will you plead to the creator who knows us better than oursleves? Jk_89, we all need to sort ourselves out....please be careful how we say things. Jizakallah ukht :D
  18. Assalamulaikum

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Welcome to IF brother Jawad, i hope you have a pleasant stay. Please read the "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_forums.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?act=boardrules"]forum rules[/url]. The use of cap lock indicates as though you're shouting though perhaps that was not your intention, Allahu'Alim. May the forum increase your knowledge and help you interact with brothers in Islam.
  19. Niqab Or No Niqab?

    Asalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, The Qur'an is the truth and commands are all in there, that is strong enough, so let us drop it to be honest because we are not scholars and most us seem to become emotionally attached which should never be the case. Let Allah (swt) guide his slaves and he knows best, the fact is if you wear niqaab you're views are likely to be towards seeing the niqaab as fard and if you don't the other way.... This isn't time to be reminscing on 'opinions' as we can see what happens when we are given this opportunity, ill behaviour occurs. I'm sorry if my words seem cold and harsh, the truth must be said in front of everyone instead of hiding and talking to others to sort it out. Perhaps it wise the topic to come to an end, Allahu'Allim.
  20. Niqab Or No Niqab?

    Wa alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, For some may believe it is fard because their heart yearns that way yes and we should allow us to wear it. Let our hearts decide and that should be it...this is where the insulting stops and we have respect for one another. Verily Allah (swt) knows best :D
  21. Niqab Or No Niqab?

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatuallh wabarakatu, I have spoken to scholars and my brother-in-law's whole family are from respectable sheikhs etc, The Qur'an gives us commands on what is obligatory, now the word 'niqaab' is not in the Qur'an, if it were wajib surely the creator would place it there. There are certain acts that Muslims during the time of the prophet (pbuh) did but that doesn't mean what they did is obligatory, nor is it haram to perform such act. You say 'we must state this' yet if we do then those who do not wear the niqaab are sinners because you say it fard, let us not fall into the trap of speaking upon what is unknown to us. Allahu'Alim....
  22. Niqab Or No Niqab?

    Asalamu Alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, There are only two ayats in the whole Qur’an which speaks on ‘Hijab’ Surat Al Ahzab and Surat Nur. There is a hadith where the prophet (pbuh) says to Aisha (ra) that she must cover herself except (points at her hands and face). The Qur’an makes hijab obligatory and the niqaab (which is not spoken of in the Qur’an) as something that you can wear if you please. The niqaab draws more attention as i realized when I wear it, which was never was my intention. Now do you know why some brothers do not like sisters who wear the niqaab? Because lots of them wear it to hide from the sun in countries in Africa and Middle East…you get the pious sisters mashallah but I know many who wear it for that. Some wear it to hide their identity so they can do fitnah without people knowing their identity. That is the saddening truth, so the beauty is being distorted Wallahi…May Allah (swt) guide his slaves to the straight path. now to the anger…I shall direct this at most of you because to be honest looking at certain posts the attitude is just sick being showed and no one seems to stand up for what is right. I’m sick and tired of seeing rant and nonsense. I suggest you all start becoming detached, and look at the truth and evidence. I do not get angry at those who do not have the courtesy to show respect to their brothers and sisters. Nor do I wish Allah (swt) to make me cry for those who show arrogance and insult others without consulting the person they have a problem with. This act is sick, you’re all adults, most of you are older than me yet your attitudes are absolutely appalling not to mention childish. If you don’t agree with someone’s opinion that is it, you either leave it or you portray your views in a gentle manner. I’m talking to all of you at them moment so take note, because if you fail to you’ll get a long lecture from me and believe me that would probably be a nightmare. I suggest you all learn and act as Muslims and not some children fighting over the latest game boy because that is how it is. The Qur’an makes hijab wajib, not the niqaab, the niqaab is desirable and that is it, how you emotionally feel is different from the truth. Our choices differ so learn to deal with it and keep quiet because most of you have said nothing important except for the few posters on the first page who displayed the argument and ended well.
  23. Marry Brother With History

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Lying will only cause more burden on the heart, truth is best for the heart....it is wise to speak the truth, if she can't take it then you must doubt her love for you in the first place. Past is the past, i don't see how a spouse can excuse lying...you can not live life based on fantasy and merely on fruitful side, darkness is inevitable eventually in life.
  24. Marry Brother With History

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, This obssesion with marriage is quiet comical and worrying at times. Anyways, people change, we all sin, the Husband doesn't need to tell you, all his sins. It is between man and his creator that shameful sins should be kept and not spoken upon, surely Allah (swt) is oft-forgiving and merciful, so why would your spouse need to forgive you? Is it man-kind that forgives or Allah (swt)? Take him for what he is, not what he was...people can change, whether he told me or not it wouldn't really make a difference and the marriage would go on in my eyes. Who is immune to sin? No one....
  25. "if Refuters" Group

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Two brothers (Jibrael, Yousuf and others I believe) have been given the moderating jobs of being IF refuters. They are in charge of moderating the section on IF which states ‘refuting non-Muslims’ as they have understanding on how to answer. They are also familiar with the religion and hold knowledge on it (Allahu’alim). Their jobs are to ‘refute’ simply, as the title states just like you have IF guardians. These two brothers also moderate other forum sections. You’d have to be asked by amu Dot for the position in order to fall into this category. I hope to a certain extent I have answered your question.
