  1. Slms I want to know if anyone thinks Laylatul Qadr was on 25th night?
  2. Why I Shed Bikini For Niqab

    Truly Inspiring story...especially for 1 hijabi Muslima :sl: I'm most amazed by 99% of revert stories told ... that the words of the Quran awakened them. And for women, the experience of being closer to their Lord and creator is what encourages them to wear Hijab, Mashallah.

    Peace to all!! It's not just that Muslims think Christians are a lost people, but also that Christians do feel this way too with the Trinity. It is confusing and hence could lead 1 to not believe in anything. The question is if the Trinity is divine? Did it come from God or man made and if from God, then why would God cause to confuse his followers when believing in Him and worshipping Him and bringing oneself closer to Him should not be confusing but rather a peaceful and contented experience? Nontheless, there is a post for the Trinity.
  4. Indeed to Muslims too it is that Jesus is the word of God and the word was made flesh into man. Many other prophets were referred to as the son of God before Jesus.
  5. Islam in CANADA!!!

    Assaalmu Alaykum all I am a Muslimah thinking of going to Canada... for about 1 year maybe more. My Husband is in IT (Business Analyst) and we're wonderng where would the best city be to move to. Also, advise if there are women in Hijab found in Corporate companies. Jazakallah Kheir for your response.
  6. Praying In Congregation

    Assalamu Alaykum All And the great reasoning behind it is not that women are inferior.... but simply for the same reason that women wear Hijab.... the protect themselves and not to distract their husbands while worshiping.

  12. Islam in South Africa

    In the 17th Century, the Dutch brought slaves from Malaysia and Indonesia to the Cape. Here we see a Masjid in Cape Town
  13. Islam in South Africa

    Assalamu alaykum Brothers and sisters I too as a South African Muslimah... Cape Tonian now living in the gold rich City of Johannesburg. Yes, living in a secular society can be challenging but Alhamdullilah, we practise our Deen freely and unlike many other places in the world, discrimination is not allowed here. The madressah's that 'corrupt' our youth may not necessarily be due to Madressah's being corrupt but pls consider that many parents over indulge their children in luxuries and then realise that they're spoilt at a much older time in their lives and parents post them off to a place like Mia's farm or a boarding school for Muslims where they are taught discipline and many other lessons in life. Although these schools do good for alot of ppl, parents do not realise that these qualities needs to be taught at home first... that's where everything starts. Children start resenting their parents... and go off a tangent. This does happen often but Alhamdullilah there are many practising Muslims here, many work places in Joburg have Salah Facilities for Muslims, you'll find Jamat Khanas often and even the Petrol stations sometimes have Salah Facilities when you are travelling...our malls too. I am an Indian Muslim, 3rd generation, there are lots of Malaysian ppl in CT...strong Cape Malay culture, lots of indians too... all over the country. There are also Pakistanis, Nigerians sweeping CT alot now and Somalians. Alhamdullilah, we all get along and may we all help each other thru tough times.
  14. Islam in UAE

  15. The Qunoot Collection

    Assalamu Alaykum Please recheck that link as I dont think the site exists. Please someone provide me with the transliteration and arabic version of Qunoot e Nazila. I have searched so many places but only get the english
  16. young marriage

    :D I know what all of u r going thru. i've been there. Alhamdullilah, i'm young and getting married this w/e, Insha Allah. It was very hard to convince the parents because my future husband is still studying. But we both decided that we needed to take the first step and then allow Allah to step in. It worked, Alhamdullilah. We made it clear that we want to live simply, dont want any fancy weddings and will contribute and pay back whatever expenses were incurred. But even though our parents eventually agreed, they still did things their way. i suppose sumwhere we had to compromise. Someday i hope that we can be better with our children and really give them whats good for them: a simple Islamic life and not these cultures that has evolved so much that we've actually lost our identities and started doing things like the western cultures, ie extravagance, materialistic, expensive etc.
  17. What is the most basic prayer

    The most basic supplication is recited all the time is: Laa ilaha illAllah Muhammadu rasullulah meaning: There is no other God but Allah (meaning One God), and Muhammad is His final Messenger.
  18. Proof of Allah?

    Go to my posting on page 1 for this answer in the Quran instead of having to post it again, which takes up space.
  19. treatment of women

    Honor killings? that's a cultural thing and is not in any way permitted in Islam. Slavery? fyi for each major sin that was committed, the penalty was to RELEASE a slave. It was the intent of prophet Muhammed to liberate slaves, not to enslave people. Today, we cant release slaves because there arent any slaves, so we move onto the next penalty in Shariah. Times have changed but Islam can still be applied to all aspects of life. Polygamy is still practised by Muslims. Also, majnoona, now u say that hitting a wife doesnt fit in with modern lifestyles, needs and wants. Does this mean that Muslims dont practice it anymore? if not, who and why was this thread created? This is getting a bit confusing. Do they or dont they beat their wives now? If they do, it's because the Quran permits them to. If they dont, it's because it doesnt fit in with their lifestyles.
  20. The signs are clear but do you fear?

    Will the Kaaba really be destroyed? Astagfirullah. How and why? I thought Medina and Makkah will be protective by Malaikas with swords? The slave will give birth to its master I.e children will start owning and ordering their parents.
  21. The signs are clear but do you fear?

    This Hadith, someone once explained that it means that communication and transport will happen so fast. I.e People used to travel months to go to other places but now do it in the space of days. We can speak to someone on the other side of the world within minutes, etc, etc.
  22. Black magick (jaadu)

    :D Insignia of Islam, i think it was u who said that Quran explicitly mentions that no-one can see the unseen except Allah Are jinns considered unseen? I dont know if anyone here has heard of babies being born with afterbirth over their faces. There's probably a term used for this. Basically the belief behind this that the child is extremely lucky and can see things that ordinary people cant. I kno that in the hospitals, some Xhosa nurses take this bag-like cover off the baby's face before the mothers find out. It supposedly brings good luck. That's a bit dodgy so I dont really believe that because your fate is written out by Allah. But my cousin was supposedly born with this thing on her face and no-one knew until she was a few years old. They took her to someone learned who knows about jadoo also and he told her mother this. My cuz also used to tell her mother that there were people in the room, when in fact there was no-one else. The people were people we knew or even family members. Some of these members were even hostile to them and my aunty thought maybe these people were jealous of her (nazr). It's pretty scary sometimes even though my cuz isnt scared at all. Can anyone here share their thoughts or similar experiences on this matter.
  23. Inter-racial Marriages

    Faith_88, i'm real happy for you. but unfortunately, not all children feel the same as u. In fact, i kno people who have complexes, especially because their grandparents dont accept their mothers from other cultures. They have identity crisis and take it out on ppl belonging to the culture of their fathers. I kno because i've been presumed to be a certain type of person just because of a culture i was born into. Luckily me, my friends and this person share the same love for Islam and were eventually able to sort it out and this person now thinks a little differently, Alhamdullilah (Praise be to Allah)
  24. Inter-racial Marriages

    For my above posting, I am not a black person (or African) but feel strongly that the mention of not marrying a black person is offensive because throughout times, black people are always look down upon. They were, and still are some of the worse victims of racism. I've read the apologies now but please try and refrain from specifying which race would be nice to date and who wouldnt. PS. I am Indian whose family would not give in to interacial marriages (or if they would, it wouldnt be without a fight). But i do support interacial marriages fully but not on the grounds that the person marrying in would be made to feel small or inferior for not being the same type as his/her spouse. It makes me very happy and greatful to Allah :D for bringing 2 people together from different cultural backgrounds and are very happy together. This clearly proves that Islam takes precedent over all cultures and nationalities. I make dua that Allah continues to join bonds of families that they may learn from each other as He intended. Ameen
  25. Inter-racial Marriages

    I thought the topic was interacial marriages in general.... cos that sounded more like a racist statement. Dating in Islam? i dont think there is such a thing. It's man-made, just like racism.
