To All Those Who Get Brave When Behind The Safety Of a Screen

“To all those who get brave when they are behind the safety of the mobile phone screens or computer monitor, yet act polite and innocent in real life. Remember that Allaah is always watching, even when you’re alone.” #beReal #beYourself

THE RIGHTEOUS WIFE – IBN TAYMIYYAH

Ibn Taymiyyah said:

“A righteous wife will be with her righteous husband for many years, and she is the one who is meant in the hadeeth in which the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “This world is temporary conveniences and the best of its comforts is a believing wife, who when you look at her she pleases you and if you tell her to do something she obeys you, and if you are away from her she protects you with regard to herself and your wealth.”

This is what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined when the Muhaajiroon asked him which kind of wealth they should acquire, and he said: “Let one of you acquire a tongue that remembers Allaah, a thankful heart, and a believing wife who will help him with regard to the Hereafter.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi from Saalim ibn Abi’l-Ja’d, from Thawbaan.

She may offer the love and compassion that Allaah speaks of in His Book, and the pain of separation may be harder for her than death in some cases, and harder than losing wealth or leaving one’s homeland, especially if one of them is fond of the other or they have children together who will be harmed by separation.”

YASIR QADHI ADMITS TO STILL HAVING DOUBTS FROM STUDYING AT YALE UNIVERSITY

 

Warning: The video linked in this post has a sister who has not covered herself fully, so would request brothers who wish to listen to the video to avert their gaze and fear Allaah. Easiest way is to hit play then open another tab on your browser so you can listen without the need to watch the video.

We learn as we study some of the most basic aspects of aqeedah (Islamic belief) that the statement ‘La ilaha ‘illa Allaah’  has conditions for it’s acceptability before Allaah and that one of the conditions is ‘Al-Yaqeen,’ meaning certainty.

But here Yasir Qadhi himself admits to still having doubts and that these doubts developed whilst studying Islamic studies with the Kuffar at Yale University.

“Wallahi I’ll be honest with you, the shubahaat I was exposed to at Yale, some of those I still don’t have answers to.”
Yasir Qadhi

For some people the position of Yasir Qadhi has already become clear, for some blind following fan-club members nothing, not the released emails confirming his doubts, nor this video with a direct confession to those doubts will be enough but I hope that for most of you who are in worried about whether it is permissible or good to take ilm from Yasir Qadhi that  this video will be sufficient for you.

May Allaah guide Yasir Qadhi and us all to the Haqq and keep us firm upon it with Yaqeen, bring us back the Yasir Qadhi of old, pre-Yale days we loved so much and help this ummah as we strive and struggle to establish our deen, ameen.

ANTI-MUSLIM GRAFFITI IN DUBLIN

dublin graffiti

This is how they deal with anti-Muslim graffiti in Ireland, a land which has known it’s own fair share of difficulties with racism and religious based prejudice in the recent past and it’s good to see that in some parts of the British Isles a culture of tolerance and respect can still exist.

Now I may be biased as I’m of Irish decent, but I can say that with only a few exceptions, the response from the Irish people when they see people like myself on Dawah stalls or just walking in the street is one of comradeship, telling us that they know what is is like to be subject to oppression and suspicion whilst living in the UK as well as their own history of several centuries of English / British occupation.

Though there are always going to be some complaints of small minded prejudice in every society, it was also nice to see that whilst the rest of Europe has been having difficulties with far right marches and demonstrations, the Irish have found their own solution in dealing with such people as seen in the video below from the attempt to hold a PEDIGA demonstration in Dublin earlier this year.

May Allaah guide the Irish people for all their efforts in fighting facism to learn the truth about Islam, may Allaah guide them and keep them firm upon his path, may He raise them up as a people firm in justice and upon the Haqq, ameen

ISLAM Q&A – BOOKS THAT SPEAK ABOUT MARRIAGE

https://islamqa.info/en/239585

I am pursuing a marriage is there any particular books or lectures I can benefit from which will cover the ruling of marriage and other topical areas which will bring about a successful marriage. In addition a book which is exclusive for sister so that my intended spouse can learn fatwa of women.

Published Date: 2016-03-12

Praise be to Allah

The Islamic texts encourage marriage and state that it is the way of the Prophets and Messengers. Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And indeed We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)), and made for them wives and offspring”

[ar-Ra‘d 13:38]

“And marry those among you who are single (i.e. a man who has no wife and the woman who has no husband) and (also marry) the Salihoon (pious, fit and capable ones) of your (male) slaves and maid-servants (female slaves). If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Bounty. And Allah is All-Sufficent for His creatures’ needs, All-Knowing (about the state of the people)”

[an-Noor 24:32].

As-Sa‘di (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

If they” that is, married people or those who want to get married “be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Bounty”. So you should not let what you imagine – that if he gets married, he will become poor because of having too many dependents – prevent you from getting married.

This offers encouragement to get married, and is a divine promise to the one who gets married that he will become independent of means after having been poor. { And Allah is All-Sufficent for His creatures’ needs } that is, He is very kind and bestows much bounty

All-Knowing” – He knows who deserves His grace and bounty in both religious and worldly terms, or in one of them, and who does not deserve that. So He gives to all in accordance with His knowledge and wisdom.

End quote.

Tayseer al-Kareem ar-Rahmaan (p. 567)

For more information, please see fatwas no. 136885 and 220841, which discuss the virtues of marriage.

With regard to books that speak of the virtues of marriage, the rulings thereon and ways of making marriage successful, there are many such books, including the following:

Tuhfat al-‘Aroos by Mahmoud Mahdi al-Islambooli. This is a very useful book in which the author speaks of proposals and the rulings thereon, the essential parts and conditions of the marriage contract, the rights and duties of both spouses, and rulings on intimacy.

[Translator’s note: This book is available in English under the title: The Bride’s Boon]

Az-Zawaaj fi Zill al-Islam by Shaykh ‘Abd ar-Rahmaan ‘Abd al-Khaaliq, in which the author discusses the rulings on marriage in Islam, how to choose a life partner, rulings and conditions of the marriage proposal, impediments and outcomes of the marriage contract , ways to guarantee family stability, and ways of dealing with disputes between the spouses; then he speaks of the end of the marriage, either through death or separation during life by means of talaaq, khula‘ or annulment of the marriage.

Az-Zawaaj al-Islami as-Sa‘eed by Mahmoud al-Masri Abu ‘Ammaar

[Translator’s note: other books available in English include the following:

A Gift for a Muslim Bride by Muhammad Haneef Abdul Majeed

Secrets to a Successful Marriage by Afshan Khan

Traversing the Highs and Lows of Muslim Marriage by Sadaf Farooq]

With regard to books that speak about rulings having to do with Muslim women, there are also many such books. By way of example we may mention Jaami‘ Ahkaam an-Nisa’ by Shaykh Mustafa al-‘Adawi and Fataawa al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, compiled by Ashfraf ‘Abd al-Maqsood

And Allah knows best.

Islam Q&A

NOT SURE IF THAT WAS A REAL INSHA’ALLAH…

not sure if that was a real inshallah or an arabic no

Today too many Muslims, I would even go as far as saying the majority of Muslims, use Insha’Allaah as a ‘polite way’ of saying no, when it’s meaning is totally different.

So be careful when you use Insha’Allah, which is meant to mean to be saying that you’ll do you all can to see through the action you are speaking about so if Allaah wills it, it will happen.

Not “I’ve got no intention of doing this thing but if by some miracle of Allaah I’m forced into a situation where it happens, then it happens.”
