Practising And Not Practising

Recommended Posts

Salam,

Well I just would like to share my encounters and feeling. Feel free to share your opinions.

 

I have few friends who were brought up as Muslim but drifted away. They moved abroad and living with their boyfriends, and getting themselves dog as pets. I'm still friends with them as they accept me for who I am and I accept them for who they are. But somehow I just feel sad.

 

Anybody with similar experience?

Walaikumussalam war wab

 

Your situation is bad...(Aoodu billahi minha)I wonder if I'll be "friends" with them.Not sure.

 

Anyway I do have friends who are careless and it hurts of course.But praise be to Allah who has not led them astray.When I'm around them,I do try to correct some of their mistakes.I care for them and I cant help it even if they may not like it.Sigh...May Allah guide them,verily He alone is the guider.

Salam,

I've had many similar experiences.. Just pray for their guidance. That's the best thing you can do for them. As far as being sad, that's normal. When you have something good, you want it for those you care for. PRAY PRAY PRAY

I don't think one can be a non-practising Muslim.

 

In Sahih Bukhari, it says:

 

ÞÇá ÇáãÕäà -ÑÃãå Çááå ÊÚÇáì-: æÚä ÃÈí ÚÈà ÇáÑÃãä ÚÈà Çááå Èä ÚãÑ Èä ÇáÎØÇÈ -ÑÖí Çááå ÚäåãÇ-¡ ÞÇá: ÓãÚÊ ÑÓæá Çááå -Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáã- íÞæá: Èäí ÇáÅÓáÇã Úáì ÎãÓ: ÃÉ Ãä áÇ Åáå ÅáÇ Çááå æÃä ãÃãÃÇð ÑÓæá Çááå¡ æÅÞÇã ÇáÕáÇÉ¡ æÅíÊÇà ÇáÒßÇÉ¡ æÃÃŒ ÇáÈíÊ¡ æÕæã ÑãÖÇä ÑæÇå ÇáÈÎÇÑí æãÓá

 

Basically it says that Belief in one God, prayer, zakat, fasting, and Hajj (if you can afford it) are the fundamentals of the religion, without which everything else is built.

:sl:

 

You mean, that if they do not offer Salah, they aren't Muslims? That view is strong. However, according to the majority of scholars, they are still Muslims.

 

a. the view of majority about this topic has always been the same from the times of the Salaf and did not change over time.

 

b. the view of majority is based on principles and Hadeeths.

 

c. The statements of Salaf are never used as a source of legislatinga rule and their statements about this matter is not explicit and if they were explicit then know it is not the view of all the Salaf.

 

Barak Allahu feekum
