  1. Marriage Introductions

    Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah Hope all are well. I am a brother trying to help a beleiving sister get married inshAllah. My intention has been to speak to potential brothers before I put them forward to the sister. But to my surprise, I have found very few people/services who can help me. The reason why I prefer to speak to the brother before I pass his details on to the sister is simply becuase that is what I feel comfortable with (rather than parading her around). I hope some of my sisters would appreciate that calling people around of whom one has no background of to veiw their daughter/sister can be an uneasy scenario for the woman's side. Therefore I personally prefer to at least have a brief chat with the brother beforehand so we at least get some idea in terms of compatability and suitability. I have so far found very few services that will assist me. I have found 'meat market' services which ask me to bring my sister along, which I don't feel comfortable with to be honest. Is there anyone that knows any service/ matchmakers/ person that could help isnhAllah? (im based in uk, south east). Also what do others think...am I being to protective in this matter? Look forward to your sensible suggestions. BaarakAllah Feekum Wassalamu Alaikum

  5. Hijabed Like Me

    :D This is what a recent UK poll had to say: A third of Britons blame flirty women for rape Mon Nov 21, 2005 2:49 PM GMT LONDON (Reuters) - One in three Britons believes a woman who flirts is partly or totally responsible if she is raped, a "shocking" opinion poll showed on Monday. Between a third and a quarter of respondents also put part or all of the blame on the woman if she fails to say "no" clearly to the man, wears sexy clothes, drinks too much, has many sexual partners and walks alone in a deserted area. "It is shocking that so many people will lay the blame for being raped at the feet of women themselves," said Kate Allen, a spokeswoman for Amnesty International UK which commissioned the research. "These findings should act as a wake-up call to the government to urgently tackle the triple problem of the high incidence of rape, low conviction rates and a sexist blame culture," she added. Only four percent of those asked thought the number of women raped exceeded 10,000 per year when there were 12,867 female rape victims in England and Wales in 2004-05 financial year, according to the Home Office. More than a quarter of people didn't know how many reported rapes resulted in a conviction and only 14 percent of respondents put the conviction rate within the correct range of one to nine percent. Home Office figures show that rapists were convicted in 5.8 percent of reported cases in 2004. The ICM research body interviewed nearly 1,100 adults across the UK for the poll and weighted the results to the profiles of the respondents, which took account of their sex, age and social and economic status. source: reuters.co.uk :D
  6. Beard Vs Hijab?

    :D The Hijab and the beard are two seperate things. The Hijab AND the beard are to be observed by beleiving men and the Hijab is to be observed by the women. This is because if you refer to the relevant chapter in the Quran (Surah 24 Verse 30) it is the hijab for the MEN that is mentioned first: 30. Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. With regard to the beard being fard - according to Dr Zakir Naik, this depends on what view you take. According to him, keeping the beard is a sunnah that is highly recomended - however in the quran (somewhere in surah 5 (maida) ) it says that obey Allah by obeying His messenger (SAS). So this then makes this fard. You may go on w w w . irf . net for more info. May Allah forgive me if I have made any mistakes. Please do correct if anything written is wrong. Wassalam
  7. Hijab

    Peace all. A famous scholar (Sheikh Khalid Yasin, USA 2005) said: 'A bad muslim is like a messy house - at least you can work on the mess and eventually make the house clean' Emmahayward248, just because you feel that you're breaking the rules doesn't mean you can't learn more about Islam. In fact, some of the best muslims began life as the worst enemies of Islam (Umar ibn Al Khattab for example - one of the best companions of our Prophet peace be upon him). Do these bad people spontaneously become muslim overnight? Of course not, they have a period in which they learn about Islam (and may still be doing things that muslims shouldn't do). Everyone becomes better over time. And even once we become muslims, we still have to try and better ourselves all the time. No one is perfect. And finally, the guidance of Islam was sent down to everyone Surah Ibrahim, verse one: 'ALR A book which we have revealed unto thee (Muhammad PBUH) in order that though mightest lead MANKIND out of the depths of darkeness into light, by the leave of their Lord, the Most Powerful, Most Wise' You are entitled to it as much as anyone else in the whole world. Wishing you all the best.
  8. I Just Found Out My Husband Took A Second Wife

    :D Dear Sr. Heavenly Firstly, I pray that may Allah help you in this difficult time. Secondly, I'm not no expert, but from what I know is that in situations such as these (problems in marriage), someone (whom you trust very much should) be selected internally from your/his family for consultation immediately. Gaining external help may result in undesired solutions. Again, i sincerely hope and pray for the best for you. And ultimately all help is from Allah. Wassalam.
  9. That Marriage Hadeeth

    :D Does anybody know where that (www.)"http://glossary/glossary_h000.html#hadith"]hadeeth[/url] which mentions something like: (the Prophet SAS said:) "You should marry as far out as possible" is stated? I need this asap - mainly because we're trying to convince a well renowned (non beleiving professor) who is about to study inter-marriage births - he has the misconception that Islam promotes cousin-cousin marriages. I have read a (www.)"http://glossary/glossary_h000.html#hadith"]hadeeth[/url] about marrying as far out as possible (from different families/tribes/clans), but I just cant find it! Plz help people! Wassalam
  10. Handshake

    :D I agree with Blessed2BMuslim and SyrianKid - remember - our Prophet (SAS) was the most gentle of people - so wouldn't taking a hardline approach by refusing to shake hands be slightly ungentle? Ws

  12. Chemistry....lol.

    :D brother ahm. My chem is a bit rusty (finished few years back) but from what i member: The golden Eqn is: MOLES = MASS / Mr Here, Mr = MOLECULAR WEIGHT . The Molecular weight is how much One Mole of a particular element/compond would weigh. So, one mole of Copper would weigh 63.5 grams; 1 mole of Iron would weigh 56 grams etc. We use moles cos this allows us to make comparisons - in other words, the number of atoms in 1 mole of Cu is exactly the same as the number of atoms in 1 mole of Fe (i.e number of atoms 63.5 grams of Cu = number of atoms in 56 grams of Fe) (this is what i can recall from top of my head...if anyone finds any errors plz correct!!) Wassalam

  15. How Should A Muslimah Be With A Muslim Bro?

    :D I would recomend you read the article published by Muslim Association of Britain titled 'Just Friends' in reflections Issue three which can be found on the following link: (www.)"http://mabonline.info/publications/"]mabonline.info/publications/[/url] (Just select reflections 3 and you will see a pdf icon appear - total download size is 6.95MB) This is a very good article written by a brother called Faraz Mir (dont' know how learned this chap is, but I found this particular article very useful). It explains how 'simple' or 'innocent' interaction can in fact lead to a very slippery slope. My opinion: Everthing is based upon intention (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 1, Number 1:"The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions.."). Of course we all come across people of opposite gender on a regular basis who are our non maharrams. Therefore it is important that we don't go over the top and indulge in conversation that is unnecessary. However, taking an ultra defensive stance could also have its down sides. For example, from my personal experience, there were times when my sister would have some friends around and I would take a very cautious approach by ensuring that there was no interatcion whatsoever between me and my sisters friend. Although there is nothing wrong with this (and this prevents my mind from drifting into things which I should not be thinking about...), I found that this approach makes me out to be a wee bit anti-social, and can sometimes baffle people who are not muslims. So when im faced with a similar situation like this now, I now at least make the effort to greet the person (ensuring that my intention is only greet the person as a gesture of kindness and welcome) and nothing more than this. But again, I think that it all ultimately comes down to your intention - and Im sure you know how you're feeling when dealing with any member of the opposite gender. I hope this helps. Wassalam.
