Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread:

Post all such questions here. I'll start with a few of my own.

As a non-Muslim (non-religious period) I wonder about the notion that God (Allah) "wants" things from us. "Wanting" to me feels like it implies a kind of inferior state, as though one was lacking something. Does Allah "want" things from mankind? To follow certain rules perhaps? Or is it not a matter of "wanting" but something else?

As someone who posted in that thread, it might have come off as a little "New Agey" but it didn't seem that bad. Hakim Archuletta is a well known figure who has a lot of material on Islamic medicine/nutrition etc. So it's definitely a topic we can and should be able to discuss.

I don't, unfortunately, but it was a pretty innocuous thread. I described the art of energy healing as manipulating subtle energies within the physical body, and made a point to distinguish it from haram witchcraft which, even when used with beneficial intent, still relies on bizarre rituals and partnerships with spirits.

Yeah, that sounds a little "new agey", damn near /fringe/-tier to be honest. I am a fan of Archuletta, but he is a traditional Islamic doctor (Unani) making use of natural medicines, etc, and not any sort of weird reiki stuff.

/fringe/ is full of incels who believe that Atlantis literally existed, please don't compare me to them. :c

I'm just wondering if there's a scholarly consensus on paranormal healing? Like, I know that energy healing has a lot of "new age" stigma, but if you think about it it's not even that illogical of a belief. Humans are made up of matter and energy. Two substances that make up a human body, why are we able to manipulate one but not the other? It could be a powerful revolution in medicine if we are able to tap into such an art…. two different sets of tools for approaching health problems from two different directions.

And it's not like magic (as in witchcraft, demonolatry, sihr) isn't real, either; I know from experience that witchcraft is real and dangerous. I washed my hands of that stuff years ago, but I still feel that my spiritual intuition is a gift I would rather not waste, God permitting.

Your body already does, every time you eat anything, your body burns it using it's chemical energy. And when you starve your body uses the fat. Light is even emitted from the body in form of mostly infrared and some visible due to that energy.

>I'm just wondering if there's a scholarly consensus on paranormal healing?

There is consensus that the quran itself contains healing, reciting it over the body or a person. That is all we need in terms of "paranormal" or "ethereal" healing. There are other material ways to heal ourselves, such as with good foods, herbs, medicine or therapy. The quran prescribes both, healthy foods (such as honey, figs, olives, pomegranates ect) and the recited quran itself as a healing.

Okay so I will post my question here for someone who speaks arabic.

So basically in Hebrew the word "Towrah" means "Teachings"

And the Arabic equivalent of "Torah" is "Tawrah or Taurat" however I can't find out what this means in Arabic.

Does it mean the same as Hebrew or is it different?

With Ramadan coming up in a few days, I feel like this is a good time to ask:

What are the specific rulings on medical exclusions from the fast? Since I have oral medication I have to take every 12 hours, and has to be taken with food in my stomach, does that mean I should consider myself exempt from fasting?

If you are fishing, and you are going to kill the fish before you clean it, how should you kill the fish? I have been hitting it in the head with a hammer until it dies, then pounding a nail through its head and into a log to skin and clean the fish. There isn’t a vein to cut its throat, but I remember a hadith saying that you aren’t supposed to beat or bludgeon an animal to death. Since catfish have a hard skull I don’t know how else to kill it, so the fish doesn’t suffer.


af4ec2  No.28744

>>28743

Here is what I found on an angler's website. I also never fished catfish before so I cant vouch for the accuracy of this information, but it makes sense to me:

>One of the most popular ways used by many veteran anglers is pithing. You’ll need a sharp to do this. To pith a catfish, position the pointy end of a knife directly above its brain. Push it down quickly into the brain cavity of the fish. This trick is usually sure and quick.

>Or, make a small incision over the soft spot on the fish’s head between their eyes. Then slip a fine piece of wire into the soft spot. This destroys the brain and central nervous system. You’ll see the catfish shutter for a few seconds and then go limp. The length of the wire depends on the size of your catfish – you’ll need a longer one if you have a large catfish. Apart from the wire, you can nail it still on the soft spot and it will be dead soon enough.

I hope this helps you. Inshallah.

You can think of it as a "test." Some people are tested in money, some in children, some in sexuality.

Now, onto another subject. If you are not attracted to the other gender, you can always not get married.

What I have just said may be controversial (how can you not get married? It is what Allah wanted. blah blah). you see, everything you do can be sorted in 3 categories: For Allah, for the community, for yourself. For Allah is things like prayer, where you pray for Allah. For the community is like work. for yourself is like eating and sleeping. in Ramadan, if you are sick, you don't have to fast. so, we can say that (for self) is more important than (for Allah).

This is important because it means that having sexual desires for the same race is a good reason not to get married.

plus, if you get married, you won't be able to provide your wife what she deserves and, in the scenario where she knows, she might even feel jealous.

By the way, having someone trustworthy, preferably from the same gender, to talk to helps more than you imagine.

this is what Carl Sagan once said

>Some people think God is an outsized, light-skinned male with a long white beard, sitting on a throne somewhere up there in the sky, busily tallying the fall of every sparrow. Others—for example Baruch Spinoza and Albert Einstein—considered God to be essentially the sum total of the physical laws which describe the universe. I do not know of any compelling evidence for anthropomorphic patriarchs controlling human destiny from some hidden celestial vantage point, but it would be madness to deny the existence of physical laws.

Islam respects both the private and the public ownership. It doesn’t sanction any violation against people’s rights, whether material or intellectual. Therefore, it does not allow that the propaganda or the efforts of others be taken away from them or be exploited without their consent.

While pirating books may not technically be theft, you should at least find some way to give the author recompense. I know many authors who have donation pages that basically say "If you didn't get my book through my publisher, kindly donate what you think the book is worth."

Some athiests think that everything in the universe just came out of nowhere, for no reason, randomly.

Theology doesn’t need to be supported by science, although the scientific miracles that are in the quran and hadith that continue to be discovered are hard to ignore.

Using science to prove how rediculously nonsensical athiesm is speaks for itself, especially when they hold up science as being able to disprove the existance of God by itself. Part of scientific theory is not ruling out a theory that cannot be completely disproven without concrete evidence. Even then, if later evidence is discovered disproving the previous evidence, the theory has to be reconsidered. That is why science is a process, almost nothing is absolutely concrete….except for things that are backed up by evidence that is in the Quran and Sunnah.

“All heavely bodies are swimming in an orbit.” Because it is in the Quran, it can be taken as a concrete fact. Even if we cannot observe large, even undiscovered celestial bodies orbiting some other celestial body, we can very safely assume that they are orbiting something, since the Quran says that they are.

Since comparing the size of our universe to the second heaven which is above it is like the size of a ring that is thrown into a desert, one could assume that the heaven that is above our universe is shaped in such a way that everything in our universe is orbiting around it.

I tell her I just want to be left alone in peace. Apparently any disagreement she interprets as just cause to blackmail me into submission. She thinks like a cultist. I just want to be left alone. It’s always been like this.

Whatever I don’t have, we always have our faith, others have less fortune than me, I have to accept that life has temporary issues, and retain my moral character, especially when I am worrying too much about this…

Iran is mostly a shiite country, they follow a deviant set of fiqh laws based on a deviant sect, most muslims (sunni) don't accept this. And even some shiites reject it too. But in Islam we don't punish someone with gender dysphoria as I stated.

Narrated Aisha:

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Buath (a story about the war between the two tribes of the Ansar, the Khazraj and the Aus, before Islam). The Prophet (ﷺ) lay down and turned his face to the other side. Then Abu Bakr came and spoke to me harshly saying, "Musical instruments of Satan near the Prophet (ﷺ) ?" Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) turned his face towards him and said, "Leave them." When Abu Bakr became inattentive, I signaled to those girls to go out and they left. It was the day of `Id, and the Black people were playing with shields and spears; so either I requested the Prophet (ﷺ) or he asked me whether I would like to see the display. I replied in the affirmative. Then the Prophet (ﷺ) made me stand behind him and my cheek was touching his cheek and he was saying, "Carry on! O Bani Arfida," till I got tired. The Prophet (ﷺ) asked me, "Are you satisfied (Is that sufficient for you)?" I replied in the affirmative and he told me to leave.

He asked: What is this? She replied: My dolls. Among them he saw a horse with wings made of rags, and asked: What is this I see among them? She replied: A horse. He asked: What is this that it has on it? She replied: Two wings. He asked: A horse with two wings? She replied: Have you not heard that Solomon had horses with wings? She said: Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) laughed so heartily that I could see his molar teeth.

so I'm home from college for the summer. When I told my mother I had converted to Islam and would be going to the Mosque for the first time soon she pretended to be accepting. But today she just revealed, that behind my back, she had been looking for a family therapist, and she is trying to make me go there with her and my father to "negotiate" where I assume she will try to get everybody to tell me that I can't be a muslim or go to a mosque. She said since I am 19 this "is a period in your life where you have to decide what sort of man you would like to be and what sort of woman you would like in your life" she presumably hates the fact that her grand children in the future could be Muslims. My father is just as unsupporting but he probably will not let her kick me out of the house just for refusing to go to coerced "therapy". Please I need your advice.

So, go to family therapy. It's not going to go the way you or your parents think.

The therapist knows that and will say so to your parents.

Your parents don't have bad intentions, even though their actions might not seem that way, so just obey them as much as you can in the realm of what is allowed, and going to the therapist certainly is in that realm, and the therapy won't go the way your mother hopes.

My future employer requires me to shave my beard in order to keep up with their professional brand.

Would it be haram to shave it for my employer?

>>29177

EEOC regulations say that, unless it would be an “undue hardship,” employers must reasonably accommodate their employees’ religious beliefs and practices. Keeping up with their brand is not "undue hardship". The only cases I've seen of shaving being an absolute requirement is in certain industries where respirators or gas masks are necessary and the beard would cause the mask to not seal properly, causing harm to the employee. That also holds true for certain jobs in the military.

In short, you get to keep your beard provided they hire you knowing you're a Muslim. However, you said "future employer", which means they haven't hired you yet. They can't deny employment based on your religion, but they can deny you employment based on your beard - even if it is for religious reasons. I suggest looking for employment elsewhere.

Marhaba. I don't know if this has been answered before, but what is your opinion on Christians as distant cousins and allies against degeneracy and Sh*ytan? I see muslims as cousins, mostly because I myself am arab and grew up around sunni muslims in Lebanon. But what do the rest of you think?

In general, yes we can have Christian and Jewish friends, but when it comes to the struggle against evil, Qur'an is very clear:

O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. God guides not the people of the evildoers. [5:51]

Hi. I don't know what you mean by allies… as in we're supposed to fight together against evil? >>29201 is right (although I disagree with your translation of [5:51], scholars generally agree that that word translates to allies, not friends), Islam is a religion and not a guide to waging political wars, compromising our beliefs is out of the question. If you want my opinion (and only God knows best), about the verse you mention [5:82], while it can be taken in a more literal sense (especially looking into recent history), I think its meant to be a lesson… that we'll find Christians to be closest to us (in terms of belief) because they are not arrogant/proud, while we'll find Jews and Pagans most against us (in beliefs) because they are arrogant and proud.


ff4de0  No.29209

I believe the verse in question is talking about friends/allies when fighting evil, not in just general times. For example, I can have a Jewish or Christian friend/ally who I go and have lunch with from time to time or maybe go see a movie; but when it comes to addressing an evil in the world, that person is not my friend/ally. I side with other Muslims only in that case.

One interpretation that I have heard of that verse is that it should be translated as "Do not take as allies Jews and Christians which are friends of eachother". In other words, Jews and Christians that are not friends of eachother can be friends of Muslims, but Jews and Christians that are friendly with eachother are enemies to Muslims. If you think about it, any Jews and Christians that are friends of eachother have to be hypocritical on some level since Christians believe Jews are "Christ killers", rejecters of their own Messiah, and Jews see Christians as usurpers trying to claim that they are the "true Jews". These are faiths that are intrinsically in competition with one another, so if you ever see them allying with one another this is a sign that something unusual is happening, and probably they are allying with eachother in order to oppose Islam, as we see today with Zionists and evangelicals. Traditional Christians like Orthodox are not friends of the Jews, and Catholics at one point were the same though now that has changed. I'm not claiming this is the correct interpretation of that verse, it's just one that I found interesting. Allahu Alim.

Because it's denying that God, our Creator, has absolute sovereignty and power over everything in the universe.

Shirk is to imply that there is a power completely independent from Allah in the universe, that has a mind and power of its own, despite what Allah decrees. It's quite obvious how that completely goes against the idea of monotheism, and you can in no way have a good foundation for your life.

What should I know before going to mosque for the first time? I will call ahead to get basics too, maybe I ask how was it for yall the first time? Can I go for first prayer of the day? Or will they have me say the shahada first then prayer (so I should arrive even earlier?)

Only thing you really need to know ahead of time is don't walk into the prayer room with your shoes on. People will be very accommodating and helpful, and you can take your shahada whenever you feel like, or not take it at all if you don't feel like it. It's entirely up to you. If you go early in the morning for the first prayer, people might be sleepy and there might not be as many people there. If you go for maghrib/isha prayers there will be more people, and if you go for Friday jumaa prayer there will be the most. In some ways, taking shahada on Friday jumaa prayer is the best because that way the whole community witnesses it and it increases their faith. By all means, though, if you don't want to wait till next Friday just go whenever. I took my shahada on a Wednesday in the middle of the day lol. You could always do your shahada at the next available opportunity and tell them you want to do it again on the next Friday prayer so the whole community witnesses it. There is no rule against doing it multiple times.

I don't know. First time I went to a mosque, I just went. I didn't call or anything like that. I simply showed up and nobody complained or whatever. They were very welcoming, actually. A couple of the brothers showed me how to perform wudu and showed me how to pray before I declared shahada. I could have declared shahada first, but it didn't really matter. Every brother was excited to know someone new was joining them and the mosque really felt like home.

When it came time for me to declare shahada, I was brought before the group after prayer time and said the words 3 times in English and Arabic.

Basically, God's house is your house too. Go any time you like. You might have a tougher time if it's Friday since that's our "sabbath" (as it were), but if you say that you're there to declare your faith, then there is no "wrong time".

Non-Muslim here. I'm curious as to what your religion truly believes, as any source other than my own reading will be laced with personal biases.

I like pic related. It has the Quran and it also provides historical context as to what is going on. Its kinda pricy at least it was in my area but imo way better than just getting a cheap Quran with no commentary for context, espically if you are someone that wants to learn more about Islam. As for learning Arabic, personally, I would do that after you get a grasp of what Muslims believe

The latter might never happen, but eh. Gotta have some carrot dangling on a stick for myself. It's like, learning Arabic has very little practical value outside our religion.

That Quran has some wacky commentary in it. For instance, it says that Jesus and his mother fled to an area of Kashmir after they tried to kill him and that he passed away there. It says that the Jinn that brought Solomon the throne was referring to a firey tempered human slave. It says that Solomon had no real Jinn slaves, because the Quran was only making a metaphor for “firey tempered” people.

That is just a couple of the things from what I remember, I gave that Quran away to a jail years ago. Basically it tries to make everything more science friendly, like everything that is beyond the scope of science and human understanding has to be explained away in the commentary. That isn’t a good thing to do.

Just because Jesus the son of Mary being raised up to Allah can’t be explained scientifically, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. If you can’t take the meaning of the Quran as it is and if you need to logically explain everything away it is bordering on disbelief.

I am pointing out that there are statements of obvious kufr in the commentary of that Quran.

If someone is practicing astrology, and you tell him that it is haram, and it has been compared to disbelief in the hadith…would you be whining? It is impossible to offer an alternative form of ascribing baseless meaning about ones future to observing different aspects of Allah’s creation.

If someone was offering palm reading, and you told them it was shirk….would you be whining? You wouldn’t be able to offer an alternative of attempting to predict someone’s future…since it is not possible. Only Allah knows the unseen.

If someone was worshiping and circumnavigating a grave, and you told them they are engaged in shirk…would you be whining? You couldn’t offer an alternative false object of worship.

I haven’t read another copy of the Quran that has commentary. I just know that the commentary in that Quran is very bad. Your argument is also very bad. Pointing out the faults in that commentary is necessary because it could lead new Muslims or uneducated Muslims astray.

If you are looking for an interpretation of the meanings of the Quran, then you would be looking for a tafsir. There are several different tafsirs of the Quran on youtube and there are many in book form. One of the best ones is Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

Any translation of the Quran you could find access to would do. Some are slightly better worded than others, since it is impossible to translate the entirety of the meanings of the Arabic to any other language. Even if you just read the translation part of the Quran the other anon suggested, it would be better worded than a few of the other translations I have seen. You can get the general idea of what is meant from the translation, but to get the complete meaning you would need to write several extra sentences of additional information for many of the verses in the Quran.

The word Quran literally means recitation. At first it was only orally recited and memorized, later on it was completely compiled into a book after the Prophet (PBUH) passed away. When I first reverted, I listened to an audiobook of the Quran where they recited the Arabic, then followed each verse with an English translation. That way you could hear the beauty and eloquence of the Quran, in the way it was originally delivered to the people.

Masturbation, in and of itself, is not haram. Pornography is, but rubbing your own organ is no different than rubbing your arm. It's yours. If you want to rub it, do so. Just keep it private and make sure you wash thoroughly before prayer. "NoFap" is a really stupid /r9k/ meme and being ashamed of your own body is a Jewish lie.

In short: it is good to avoid it because it can lead to pornography and other lusts. Get married ASAP. But it isn't out right forbidden.

Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal regards semen as an excretion of the body like other excreta, and permits its expulsion the same way bloodletting is permitted. Ibn Hazm holds the same view.

Unless you're somehow more enlightened than the scholars and the sahabah, then you'll know that it is makruh, not entirely haram.


d28777  No.29608

>>29607

I am not implying that I am more enlightened that scholars or the Sahaba. I just think that you should take into consideration the fact that the Prophet (peace be upon him) advised people to fast as a means of controlling their sexual desires. He suggested fasting, not anything else. There are other hadith stating that the one who “marries his hand” is cursed and the one who masturbates will be brought up on the day of resurrection having his hand pregnant. The point is it’s debatable. The Prophet (peace be upon him) advised that a believer should stay away from things that are questionable, and that issue is VERY questionable.

When you say that masturbating is probably not haram, maybe it is only disliked, it isn’t a strong incentive to stop doing it. Someone needs to believe something is wrong before they can develop the willpower to change.

Quitting masturbating isn’t an easy task. It is very difficult. I had to try several times before I was able to quit for a long period of time. But it is necessary to know in the back of your mind that it is haram, and that is what I still believe. I didn’t masturbate for over 2 years before I got married. As for the testosterone issue, I know from personal experience that when I had a wet dream, I did not have as much energy as I usually did for a few days afterwards. It is easy to tell when your job involves a lot of physical labor. Once you make it over the hurdle of not masturbating for a few weeks, it becomes much easier. You have better thoughts and you feel much better not doing that. I never would have been able to stop if deep down I thought that doing it might be acceptable in Islam.


d28777  No.29610

>>29608

Also I have never seen, in any of the narrations about purifying oneself from a state of janaba, a mention of masturbation. They explicitly state “after one has a wet dream or after having relations with one’s spouse.” Those are the only 2 things mentioned, because those are the only acceptable ways of being in a state of janaba. It does not explain how to purify yourself after commiting zina or after commiting adultery, because those are not acceptable actions. It does not mention masturbation when talking about being Junub and having to take a Ghusl afterwards.

Perhaps, but we are not allowed to declare haram that which Allah has not declared haram. Not even the Prophet(pbuh) is allowed to do so.

I'm not saying it's 100% great and everyone should be polishing the bishop every day. All I'm saying is that a Muslim should not fall into the trap of "nofap" under the guise of it being haram. It's ok to do it under certain circumstances, making it makruh and not haram.


d28777  No.29613

>>29611

The general principle in Islam is that if you are given the choice between 2 evils, you choose the lesser of the 2 evils. Obviously masturbating is the lesser evil when the choice is between that and committing zina. You should consider all the available evidence before making a decision. And there are scholars and evidence that support the position that it is haram.


ff4de0  No.29614

>>29613

I gotta be honest with you, akhi. If someone can't handle nofap for 2 days without getting hypertensive and begging for help, then they are in genuine danger of zina and should probably just go ahead and relieve themselves.

However, 90% of the "nofap" people we see here are the /r9k/ or /b/ meme followers and don't really have any connection to Islam. They're just looking for an excuse to avoid their sexual addiction when they should be looking for, perhaps, a doctor to help them out.

Allama Mahmood Alussi (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates in Ruh-ul-Ma’ni: “Atta (may Allah be pleased with him) says that I have heard that on the Day of Judgment one group will be brought in such a way that their hands will be pregnant. I think they are the masturbators.” Allama Alussi further says: Saéed bin Jubayr (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon him) said: “Allah Exalted will inflict punishment on a group of people because they misused their private parts.” (Ruh-ul-Ma'ni p. 291)

Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Prophet of Allah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The person who performs marriage [nikah] with his hands (i.e. masturbates) is cursed.” (Fatawa Razaviyya, Vol. 10, p.80)

However,

Mufti Waqar-ud-din Al-Qadri (Hanfi) writes in “Waqar-ul-Fatawa” (Vol. 1, P. 269): “If a person is overpowered by sexual desire such that there is fear of him becoming involved in adultery or he is not capable of marrying or his wife is so far that he can't go there. Then it is hoped there is no punishment for the one doing this [masturbation]. It is written in “Durr-e-Mukhtar” (Vol. 2, Pp 109) (by Sheikh Alla’ud Din Muhammed son of Ali Haskiffi, died 1088H): ‘If there is fear of committing adultery then it is hoped that there is no punishment on the one doing this (masturbation)’. Allama (Syed Mohammed Amin Ash-Shaheerba Bin Abideen) Shammi, (may Allah’s mercy be upon him, died 1253H) has also argued on this quite a lot and decided that if he does this with the intention of saving himself from committing sin it will not be a sin and if he does it with the intention of enjoyment he will be a sinner.”


d28777  No.29617

I admit, I decided to stop when I was about 29-30 years old so I’m sure I didn’t have as strong a desire as someone who is younger. But I didn’t decide to do it because of the “nofap” reasons or people who are trying to espouse that way of thinking. I did it because I saw the evidence that it is haram and made the decision to quit. I would prefer to go through a period of discomfort for a time than have an unnecessary action like masturbation to worry about on the day of resurrection.

The first time I tried to stop it was extremely difficult. I only made it a few days. Then I felt really bad about giving up so quickly and tried again. I made it a little over a week. I tried again and almost made it a month. I tried again and made it 2 months. After that time I felt very bad, it even made me feel physically bad. Then I completely quit. After you quit for a long period of time you feel way better. It is way easier to be confident and to control yourself and your thoughts around women when you aren’t masturbating. That might sound ridiculous when feeling extreme urges after a couple days, but it is the truth.

Don’t go to nofap places or threads for support if you are going to attempt to stop. Just fast and try to do the best you can and don’t give up. Listen to or read the Quran and Islamic things for encouragement. This is what I originally read that made me decide to stop. https://www.islamicboard.com/advice-amp-support/134303736-overcome-masturbation.html?highlight=masturbation

I assume you are referring to the other hadith in the link

Imam Shamsuddin Zahabbi (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates a Prophetic narration that, “Seven people are such that Allah has cursed them and He will not even cast a look of mercy upon them on the Day of Judgment. Allah will tell them to enter Hell with the people who are going to Hell, except those who repent.

1. One who performs the act of sodomy.

2. One upon whom the act of sodomy is performed.

3. One who does bad deeds with animals.

4. One who marries his mother or sister.

5. One who masturbates.” (The words of the hadith says these seven people but lists five - Kitab-ul-Kaba’ir p.48)

It does not imply that those sins are on the same level. It just says that Allah will not even look at them on the day of resurrection. Someone who hits or abuses animals is also included. It seems obvious that some of those sins are worse than others. There is a similar hadith with different sins mentioned. It is in Sahih Al-Bukhari, 3.557 Narrated Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, “There are three types of people whom Allah will neither talk to, nor look at, on the Day of Resurrection.

(They are):

1. A man who takes an oath falsely that he has been offered for his goods so much more than what he is given.

2. A man who takes a false oath after the ‘Asr prayer in order to grab a Muslim’s property

3. A man who withholds his superfluous water. Allah will say to him, “Today I will withhold My grace from you as you withheld the superfluity of what you had not created.

I do not think that those sins are all equal, not is it implied that they are on an equal level.

Are you going to ignore the other hadith that are listed because one of them is inauthentic? Anyone can find an Islamic ruling supporting any action they want to undertake if they look hard enough. That is fatwa shopping. It is better if you objectively look at the evidence without giving preference to what is an easier action to do.

If you read through the entire thread in https://www.islamicboard.com/advice-amp-support/134303736-overcome-masturbation.html there is an abundance of information of why one shouldn’t masturbate.

Lol it refers to bestiality, not hitting an animal. The (fabricated) hadith is grouping masturbation together with bestiality and incest.

>I do not think that those sins are all equal

Being stingy and not sharing water and making false oaths are closer to each other than masturbation and bestiality and incest.

Likewise anyone can find an Islamic ruling calling any action haraam. Fatwa shopping goes both ways. Actually since the basis is that things are halal not haram, then looking for fatwas that say something is haram is more likely to be fatwa shopping than the opposite.

>>29621

I am not going to argue with you on your first statements because it isn’t relevant to the issue at hand.

>All of them are fabricated, that's the one thing.

This hadith that is with the others is from Sahih Muslim. I doubt that you are suggesting that it is fabricated, it is more likely you didn’t read all of them, because they contradict the belief you already hold and are not willing to question.

Abdullah bin Masood (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon him) said: “O group of youth! Whoever from among you can marry should do so because it keeps the gaze low and it protects the private parts. And he who cannot marry should fast because fasting breaks lust.” (Muslim – Book of Marriage)

That is exactly how it is on the link that I posted.

It is also In Sahih Bukhari.

We were with the Prophet (ﷺ) while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power."

Notice how in the hadith there is no mention of how someone should masturbate because it is an elevation of his desires. You would think that if it was an acceptable action they would have mentioned it, but they didn’t. The Prophet (PBUH) said to fast.

>>29622

Fatwa shopping is used by people to try and justify taking an EASIER course of action. Quitting masturbating is not easy. But I think it is the right thing to do in accordance with Islamic teachings. If you want to believe that it is acceptable because Ibn Hazm and other scholars thought it was, go ahead. But any Muslim who wants to do such actions should at least consider contradicting evidence.


d28777  No.29628

>>29627

Seriously, if someone is actually fasting and trying to control their desires, but they slip every once and a while and end up masturbating, they are in a far better position than someone who is just wacking off and not fasting. Because one thing is certain, you can’t wack off and fast at the same time. And fasting is the recommended action for someone who cannot marry.

>doubt that you are suggesting that it is fabricated, it is more likely you didn’t read all of them

Every hadith you posted that explicitly forbade masturbation are fabricated. So it's a bit ironic that you then go asking others to prove from the Quran and sunnah that something is haram(when the onus of proof is on you in the first place).

>You would think that if it was an acceptable action they would have mentioned it

You'd think that if it was a forbidden action there'd be a single authentic hadith explicitly forbidding it.

>Fatwa shopping is used by people to try and justify taking an EASIER course of action

And who defined this term? Allah? Or you? I define it as picking a more difficult course of action. Prove to me that your definition is more authentic than mine. Prove that the default position in Islam is haram and difficulty. Go ahead.

>Quitting masturbating is not easy.

So? Divorce is very easy, you just say a word. Is divorce haram? That's not good reasoning.

>If you want to believe that it is acceptable because Ibn Hazm and other scholars thought it was, go ahead.

Of course you're the only one following the sunnah(albeit through fabricated hadiths), whereas everyone else is just fatwa shopping. Give me a break.

>But any Muslim who wants to do such actions should at least consider contradicting evidence.

I can tell you are angry because of the way you have to try and pick apart everything that I say and imply that I am saying things that I am not. Just chill out bro. I wasn’t accusing you of fatwa shopping in the first place. I was just mentioning the general concept. I was not trying to demean the opinion of Ibn Hazm or your opinion. I think you are assuming hostility in the things that I am saying, when there isn’t any.

A good example of fatwa shopping is someone who wants to buy a house. He doesn’t have enough money to buy it all at once so the only option he has is to take a loan from a bank with interest. Usury is impermissible, but some scholars will tell you it is okay if it is a necessity. So then all he has to do is look around for a scholar that defines buying a home as a necessity. The only real halal option in that situation is to rent a place, even though it might be more expensive. That way you aren’t dealing in usury.

The books that the two hadith dealing with masturbation are from are Fatawa-eRazvia and Ruh Al-Ma’ani. I doubt that you can with absolute certainty declare that they are 100% fabricated. They may be weak, but just because a hadith is weak does not mean you can just automatically dismiss it. Take those hadith with the other Sahih hadith that mention fasting and the state of janaba and that is what I base my opinion from. I am not claiming that I am the only one following the Sunnah.

There are no good examples because it's just a scare tactic people use when they don't have any actual facts.

Except that hadiths in question were rated as "completely baseless" by the muhaddiths I linked to. I'd say that's a pretty dismissive answer.

I am not arguing that you are wrong. I am explaining why I believe that masturbation is haram, using evidence. If you don’t like that evidence that is your choice. Even if I am wrong, I am accepting weak hadith to base my opinion on, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Seriously bro, I was not intending to accuse you of fatwa shopping. I said “Anyone can find an Islamic ruling supporting any action they want to undertake if they look hard enough. THAT is fatwa shopping.” Your position has evidence from notable scholars and has real evidence. It isn’t like you are proclaiming some ridiculous Shia or Sufi position from a far astray sect of those groups. And it isn’t like you are trying to justify dealing in usury or something that is clearly haram.

But you shouldn’t act like the point of view that masturbation is haram is “completely baseless”. A far greater number of scholars hold the position that it is haram. I was trying to offer advice on how to stop, because I saw great benefit from it, even though it was difficult.

I’m sorry if you are having trouble finding a wife, akhi. May Allah help you to find a good wife.

Any of you ever feel lonely.

Some people have got lives in the gutter, are poor, stuff like that. But at least they have family. Mine own is disgusting kuffar (which is their choice… fine) who never once taught me religion or even spent time with me. I won’t be bitter. I appreciate some of my own relatives. But I was clearly an unwanted kid to a couple of marijuana smoking middle class yuppies who just wanted to ☻ and not realizing they’d have to deal with the consequences for the next 18-25 years. People live blissfully in their ignorance. My father literally advised me when I was growing up to start drinking and smoking because that was how he thought I would make friends. But what if you aren’t happy being some disgusting drunk? He was never around to raise me. He was always at a sports bar and when he came home he would make perverted comments towards my sisters (one who turned into a childless alcoholic and the other a lesbian) and hit me. I was on the wrong path for so long because all I knew was to avoid becoming like him but nothing else. I began injecting steroids at 18 and realized narcissism didn’t make me happy either. I broke up with the only girl I ever loved and who ever loved me because I thought she wasn’t good enough for me. Now 2 years later I have no idea if she even exists and if she is somewhere she’s probably forgotten or moved on. I could have married her. I try to get over it by realizing that eventually I have come to accept islam and this is predetermined and I’m thankful I narrowly escaped the downward spiral. But I still haven’t even been to the mosque. I’m too self centered to just go and worship without being scared of what people think of me. I have not even finished reading the Quran and 90% of what I know is only from Sunnah. So I’ve managed to do surface level stuff like stop taking photographs and no music and stuff but have not even actually prayed once. All I want is to go to the mosque. I will make myself go before the end of this month. I am just embarrassing myself

So go to the mosque and worship in fear of what people will think of you, without fear of Allah, with a distracted mind dwelling on sinful things, for the gratification of your own petty ego. Because guess what? Such a form of worship is still better then no worship at all. We all start off weak on our feet, slaves to our nafs, petty and envious, bitter at our lot in life, but through Islam, through submission to the will of God, even if that submission is only outward at first, we move forward, step by faltering step toward real piety and the good pleasure of Allah (swt), inshallah. From the sound of it you've had a pretty tough upbringing, and I really do sympathize with you, so I apologize if my tone sounds harsh. Don't trust in your own righteousness, trust in Allah (swt). If there's anything I can help you with I will gladly do so, please don't hesitate to ask.

I think you should work on learning how to pray. The prayer was the first thing that the Prophet (PBUH) and his companions used to teach new Muslims. Work on getting the motions down first, since memorizing Al-Fatiha and the other things will take you a while. Just say what you are able to at first, even if it is only Alhamduillah, Subhan Allah, and Allahu Akbar. Performing the prayer is really important.

Brother we are all laymen here, and no muslim is an angel. You might not have had ideal parents, but at least you saw the error in their ways and avoided it. And alhamdulillah, Allah (swt) guided you through his grace and mercy to tawheed. Now that you know your purpose in life, as muslims, we should be thankful as that is the greatest gift. I would recommend finishing the quran obviously, but also pushing yourself as you said, to visit the masjid inshaAllah. And perhaps you shall find a wife superior to the woman you lost. And as for you parents, stay in contact with them, keep respecting that for it is an obligation in islam, you must serve them until they pass.DO NOT look at them with contempt. And it could also be an avenue for dawah to guide them to the right way of life and make them abandon their bad addictions.

22. Do not make [as equal] with Allah another deity and [thereby] become censured and forsaken.

23. And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], "uff," and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word.

Hello everyone.

Former atheist here who was raised Roman Catholic, I've been drawn to religion over the last few years. I looked into Islam briefly about a year ago but quickly became drawn to Christianity and Traditional Catholicism. I just finished reading through the New Testament (this morning actually) and after completing it and having learned a lot of the basics I'm still not really sure of it.

And strangely enough I've found myself thinking about Islam over the past few days. I'm about to start reading a copy of the Quran I have, but figured I'd post here as well.

Does anyone have any advice for looking into Islam, like where to begin with it? A lot of the terminology is foreign to me, but I read a short apologetics book awhile ago so I'm familiar with some of the basics.

I'm specifically interested in more traditional or conservative movements like Salafism.

Also do any of you have opinions on Rene Guenon? Was his perrenialist approach uncommon or does it make sense in terms of Sufism and mysticism.

Thanks in advance, any help will be appreciated

>Does anyone have any advice for looking into Islam, like where to begin with it?

I would say the quran first and foremost, and check out islamqa.info, they cover almost every question and it's salafist.

>A lot of the terminology is foreign to me, but I read a short apologetics book awhile ago so I'm familiar with some of the basics.

Wikipedia is also good for a general understanding of Islamic terminology.

>Also do any of you have opinions on Rene Guenon? Was his perrenialist approach uncommon or does it make sense in terms of Sufism and mysticism.

Islam does not deny some truth remains in abrahamic religions, and possibly in non abrahamic ones. Since we believe that from the beginning of the human race, God sent messengers to all tribes with the same monotheist message, thus in time, even with the alteration of that main message, some of the truths still survive. That's why we see some common societal values across many cultures. I don't know much about Rene, but I do know he was a sufite and part of the occult Martinist Order. His unhealthy interest in hinduism also makes me suspicious. So I would not take him as a proper Islamic teacher. And Allah knows best.

By reading Qur'an. Absolutely nothing else matters until you've read Qur'an. Don't worry about schools of thought, sects, apologetics, or mysticism until you've read Qur'an.

Then you need to study the Sunnah and the scholars.

>Sufism

Sufism is not a branch of Islam. It is a way of approaching Islam. You can't just be Sufi.

He read Qur'an. Also, I'm pretty sure we have a thread on him somewhere.

Hello I got two questions, one more serious than the other: if you lose wudu during prayer, should one first say salam to the right then go make wudu again or should one immediately go make wudu without saying salam and start praying again?

Go and do wudu and then start the prayer again from the beginning - unless you break wudu deliberately, then the prayer is invalidated.

As for superpowers, well, it's impossible to know since it's not something that has ever happened. It's a hypothetical and Islam doesn't deal with things that cannot happen.

Hi, I have some trouble with this:

"O Prophet (Muhammad )! Verily, We have made lawful to you your wives, to whom you have paid their Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), and those (captives or slaves) whom your right hand possesses - whom Allah has given to you, and the daughters of your 'Amm (paternal uncles) and the daughters of your 'Ammah (paternal aunts) and the daughters of your Khal (maternal uncles) and the daughters of your Khalah (maternal aunts) who migrated (from Makkah) with you, and a believing woman if she offers herself to the Prophet, and the Prophet wishes to marry her; a privilege for you only, not for the (rest of) the believers. Indeed We know what We have enjoined upon them about their wives and those (captives or slaves) whom their right hands possess, - in order that there should be no difficulty on you. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (33 - 50)

I feel that there should never be any difference in the way God treats his creations, so accepting this is hard for me.

Yes, God makes exceptions wherever they are necessary. Muhammad (saws) is not the only person in history who was allowed to do exceptional things. Al-Khidr (as) is another example, even more extreme, God allowed him to murder and destroy property. Muhammad (saws) was allowed to engage in these marriages to set certain examples (e.g. it's ok to marry older divorced/widowed women and there shouldn't be any stigma, it's ok to marry jewish and christian women, it's ok to marry an adopted son's divorcee etc), and in order to make crucial tribal alliances.

The Prophet PBUH said that a group of his Ummah will remain upon the truth until the day of Ressurection. He also predicted that the time we are living in, with all its circumstances would come.

I would suggest you refrain from slandering every Muslim on earth, commiting the major sin of suicide, or suggesting that other Muslims do so.

It is narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) said, “When a man says to his companion ‘O you Kaafir,‘ then this would be necessarily binding upon one of the two. If the man who was called a kaafir is actually one, then he would be a kaafir; otherwise whatever the caller said would return upon him.

Allah forgives sins committed out of ignorance, so I would also suggest you go read a book and be quiet.

I’m the guy who keeps arguing with his parents. My mother definitely hates Islam. She pretends she is tolerant of it because she is a white liberal who collects experiences with brown people like Pokémon cards. She keeps telling me she has a classmate named Muhammad and this and that and basically acts like she’s an authority on Islam. I mentioned that this coworker of hers is literally just paying for a degree with his petrodollar allowance like most gulf Arabs do when they come here. She was also probably mad that her classmate Muhammad didn’t want to be her friend because she invited him to a party she literally threw for herself and he rebuffed her offer. When I told her this is because Muslims oppose intermingling (also we own a dog) she got super angry. You might think this sounds like a crazy story but it’s true unfortunately this women pays for for my college with money my dad gives her. Now she tells me Islam abuses women because they have to wear the hijab and this and that. I tell her Islam appreciates women but she says all religion is oppressive. I tell her this goes against her tolerance she pretends to have but she doesn’t listen. I didn’t talk to her for a week before this happened because this happens all the time. I guess I learned my lesson because I need to stop talking to her because she always finds and opportunity to argue. She told me I’m not welcome at the house anymore once I leave for college again so winter and summer I have to find a job. She might keep paying for tuition since my dad knows I will tell my aunts and uncles they’ve disowned me if they don’t at least pay for regional college. I sound very white trash but yes my parents might be trash but I am trying not to end up like that please guys who do I swallow my pride and go through their silly insults. I have learned some of my rights so when they threaten to kick me out I tell them to get a court notice and they decided not to.

Fresh water is less dense than salty water. In any situation where fresh water is above salty water, they don't mix. Embed related shows that off.

You could say that if you took a spoon to that mix of water, you could mix it up, and you would be right. If you move the saltier water above the fresh water enough, they will mix. The Quran specifically mentions seas here, and you'd need a much bigger spoon for that. While looking for that video I found a lot of videos by atheists who conveniently leave out the sea part and think they've disproved Islam. It's kinda sad.

Seas usually have layers of saltiness. As you go down, the pressure increases, which means the water can dissolve more salt in it, which lets the ocean get saltier and saltier as you approach the bottom. The easiest way to see that is with the brine pools at the bottom of the oceans, which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1B_-yakR_4E

One specific form of divination that's called out in the Quran is "divining arrows". The pagans of Arabia would take a bunch of arrow shafts, write things like "yes" or "no" on them, and dump them in a bowl. Then when they needed a question answered, they'd reach in and pick one. Astrology is a similar idea, but using patterns in space instead of a bowl of sticks.

If you need it for insight or psychological counseling, astrology usually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you're told how people of your star sign tend to behave, you end up automatically picking up on that behavior. If you want insight or counseling, instead of a bunch of tropes to follow, you'll have better luck asking for advice from others.

If you mean understanding things like Allah and his throne, and the angels, and other parts of the religion that exist outside our understanding, that's fine. We're told to think about that, like you mentioned in >>30311 .

From Wikipedia:

>Astrology

Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means of divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events.

>Divining

Divination (from Latin divinare "to foresee, to be inspired by a god",[2] related to divinus, divine) is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of an occultic, standardized process or ritual.[3] Used in various forms throughout history, diviners ascertain their interpretations of how a querent should proceed by reading signs, events, or omens, or through alleged contact with a supernatural agency.[4]

For an example, a shy person could be shy for any number of reasons. Our understanding of the world would say it's due to social anxiety, or because they aren't familiar with social interaction. Astrology would say it's because they're born in September. One source of info gives a specific explanation with proven links, the other is a guess based on a link that doesn't provide any useful information.

You could say there's a link between shyness and September based on Seasonal Annual Depression, but then you'd be using our understanding of the world instead of astrology.

To an extent they do. Tides happen because of the sun and the moon, and both provide us with light. If you mean like that, that's astronomy rather than astrology.

well, there is the horoscope thing. how the heavenly bodies are positioned at the time of birth, and how this correlates with personality traits etc. I am no expert on this, but I understand that much effort has been put into making sense into how the appearance of the heavenly bodies correlate to events and affairs on earth. nothing wrong with this, as long as it's done in a serious manner with humbleness, is my take on it. it's a beautiful thing, how the heavenly bodies move in patterns and cycles. the study of this is the foundation of astrology.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa:

"The science of the stars and the so-called rising and setting of the stars, and reading the palm, reading the cup, and reading lines, and so on, which are claimed by the fortunetellers and magicians, are all among the sciences of the Jaahiliyyah (Pre-Islamic Era of Ignorance) which Allah and His Messenger sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) have forbidden. Islam invalidated all such practices and warned people against them and against going to those who practice them, asking them about it, or believing in anything they say, because it is part of the knowledge of the Unseen, which only Allah knows.

My advice to everyone who relies on such practices is to repent to Allah and to seek His Forgiveness, and to rely on Allah Alone and trust Him in all matters while using the legitimate means and permissible tangible causes, and to stay away from these practices and beware of asking those who practice them or believing what they say, as a way of obedience to Allah and His Messenger sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) and as a way of preserving one’s religion and Creed, and to avoid incurring the Wrath of Allah upon him, and staying away from the causes of Shirk and Kufr, which, if one dies while practicing them or believing in them, then he indeed loses this world and the Hereafter."

He has a point. Claiming that something forbidden is allowed shows a massive flaw in your faith, which would be enough to put you outside the fold of Islam. Divination is explicitly called out to be a sin in the same verse as alcohol, which is also haraam.

As for divination itself, you said in >>30323 that "much effort has been put into making sense into how the appearance of the heavenly bodies correlate to events and affairs on earth". The problem here comes from the term "correlation". That means that there's no actual mechanism or explanation behind them, just that there appears to be a link.

The biggest problem with this is that horoscopes become a self-fulfilling prophecy. If a person is told that their date of birth means they're supposed to be an extrovert, they'll subconsciously go out more. For a proper study, the University of Chicago found that telling women that they're worse at math than men made them perform worse.

The self fulfilling nature of astrology creates a snowball effect, where anything related to it is considered to be true because it's percieved as true by people who believe in it. Strip astrology down and try to objectively prove it and you'll find that it's just superstition.

>>30328

It is narrated by Bukhari and Muslim, on the authority of Zaid Ibn Khalid Al-Juhani (ra) that he said: "Allah's Messenger (may Peace Be Upon Him) prayed the morning prayer with us in Al-Hudaibiyyah after it had rained during the night, and when he had finished, he addressed the people, saying: "Do you know what your Rabb said?" They said: "Allah and His Messenger (may Peace Be Upon Him) know best!" He (may Peace Be Upon Him) said: (Allah swt said:) "Some of My slaves this morning are true Believers in Me and others are disbelievers: As for those who say: "We have received rain from the Bounty of Allah and His Mercy," they are Believers in Me and disbelievers in the stars, while those who say: "We have received rain from the movements of such-and-such a star," are disbelievers in Me and believers in the stars."

Zaid Ibn Khalid (ra) tells us in this Hadith that the Prophet (may Peace Be Upon Him) led the people in fajr prayer in the area known as Al-Hudaibiyyah, after a night of rain. After the prayer, facing the people, He (may Peace Be Upon Him) addressed them, wishing to encourage them to do good and to increase their knowledge; He (may Peace Be Upon Him) told them that Allah had revealed to him that regarding the rain, the people are divided into two categories: (i) Those who thank Him and (ii) those who are ungrateful to Him. As for those who are grateful and believe in Him, they are the ones who attribute the blessing of rain to Allah ; and as for those who are ungrateful and disbelieve in Him, they are the ones who attribute the rainfall to the positions of the planets and stars.

AstroNOMY NOT astrology.

Astrology is pseudoscience that was created by mushrik magicians, it is not allowed in Islam.

Ibn 'Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who acquires a branch of the knowledge of astrology, learns a branch of magic (of which he acquires more as long as) he continues to do so."

[Abu Dawud]. Book 18, Hadith 161

Actually, Allah swt in the quran is clearly encouraging humans to study the cosmos as a science, which we call astronomy. It is a blessing and a sign, and has practical uses such as navigation, calculating the lunar month and solar seasons, holidays, time of prayers, eclipses, ect..

–sura 55, verse 5:

"The sun and moon (are subjected) to calculations"

–sura 6, verse 97:

"(God) is the One Who has set out for you the stars, that you may guide yourselves by them through the darkness of the land and of the sea. We have detailed the signs for people who know."

–sura 16, verse 16:

"(God sets on the earth) landmarks and by the stars (men) guide themselves."

10:5 He it is who has made the sun a [source of] radiant light and the moon a light [reflected], and has determined for it phases so that you might know how to compute the years and to measure [time]. None of this has God created without [an inner] truth. Clearly does He spell out these messages unto people of [innate] knowledge: -

Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during them. And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively. And know that Allah is with the righteous [who fear Him]. 9:36

They ask thee, (O Muhammad), of new moons. Say: They are fixed seasons for mankind and for the pilgrimage. It is not righteousness that ye go to houses by the backs thereof (as do the idolaters at certain seasons), but the righteous man is he who wardeth off (evil). So go to houses by the gates thereof, and observe your duty to Allah, that ye may be successful - 2:189

It's clearly referring to mathematics and astroNOMY, because this science was a life saver especially for arabs who relied on the constellations for desert navigation. Also, every civilization used seasons for food production.

I have. That's why I mentioned how they work. When someone is told that their type acts a certain way, they subconsciously adjust their behavior to match, even if it's bad for them. I also mentioned the UoC's study showing a similar effect that appears when you tell women they aren't good at maths.

The incarnation isn't the key that makes God personal, his omnipresent immanence is, his indwelling in the hearts of believers, our bodies are temples of the holy spirit, we are made in his image, and we draw closer to him as we purify ourselves, in this life and the next. He fills heaven and earth, he is not an absantee landlord, or simply a transcendent watcher from afar….such a being could never be called personal or even knowable. Heaven isn't pretty gardens and honey, it's being in the presence of God and getting ever closer to him.

False, we will have a PERSONAL relationship with God eternally. That's what the quran promises, that God will wants to forgive us and be pleased with us and us with him. We will be as near as any creation can to it's creator, what more can you ask? Seeing the presence of God is the best reward the quran says, the rest is just extra pleasure and for us to relate to heaven in earthly terms, for the average person to look forward to heaven.

So Allah is immanent within creation and transcendent? Or purely transcendent and not immanent in creation?

You can't have a purely transcendent Allah and then post quotes arguing he dwells within man via his breath and is closer to us than our veins without admitting to some immanence….

If you want to say he is in creation and omnipresent and so forth that's good, then he has the possibility to be personal. Otherwise he is veiled from man forever via absolute transcendence.

Well firstly, the riba (usurious) based stock market is forbidden, all these companies work with riba in one way or another. Investing in riba is optional, you don't have to do it to survive, unlike using fiat currency, which is also riba based, but which is necessary for daily life. Alas, the prophet (pbuh) warned us about this age of usury we are living in:

Narrated by Ibn Isa, and recorded in Abu-Dawood Hadith #3325

“There will come a time when you will not be able to find a single person in the world who will not be consuming riba. And if anyone claims that he is not consuming riba then surely the dust of riba will reach him.”

To answer your question, ff it was a halal islamic market, then maybe if it generated wealth it would be taxable, anything that is considered excess wealth, so if you save the profits, it's included in the zakat. I hope someone more knowledgeable can answer inshaAllah.

I invested back when I first saw Yasir Qadhi pushing “Halal investing.” I thought I could invest myself, staying away from banking stocks and the gambling nature of futures and other things. At the time I was not aware that the shares of stock are not certificates of ownership. Their value is not based upon a companies value, but it is solely based on what other people are willing to spend for that share of stock. At any time the company can buy back its shares without your permission, paying you pretty much whatever they want. I invested in a few companies in a sector that I thought looked promising, trying to steer clear of companies that had haram dealings or dealt openly with interest.

I noticed one of the larger companies I invested in was getting some of its income from interest, so I sold those shares. I still own shares in smaller companies, that make security cameras and desalination equipment for salt water.

I find some of the things Yasir Qadhi says questionable in general. He says that most of the funds of the Memphis Islamic Center are in the stock market.

imo they are a threat to our tawhid, which is the most important things, they try to make us loyal to them and to participate in their shirki politics (democracy, liberalism, lgbt), its a spiritual war in the usa, and their cross bearing government wages a physical war in the muslim lands

muslims have a status like those of dhimmis, we are paying a tax and cant practice our deen fully, and we are forced to used riba currency, among seeing other indecent things

Allah (j.j) warns us about those:

"If they gain dominance over you, they would be to you as enemies and extend against you their hands and their tongues with evil, and they wish you would disbelieve." -(sūrat l-mum'taḥanah 60:2)

>Bear in mind, there's already some movement in France(I think) to remove "anti-semitism" and "problematic" words in the Quran. They are literally doing the same thing to us as to what they did with Christians back then.

yeah and they also cooperate with the moroccan gov to 'educate' imams in 'modern' islam, but thankfully Allah (swt) is protecting this deen no matter who betrays it and tries to change it, thank God the western islam has no influence in muslim aqeedah

I'm already seeing that sadly, but it's contained in the west. I don't think there's any future for born muslims in the west, other than the converts who got out of this filth and aren't enticed by it.

There isn't a verse saying that "a woman can not lead the prayer". I don't think there's an explicit hadith either. But my answer would be that firstly the prayer has been transmitted as a practice and women leading men has never really been an established practice. And secondly, we can just use common sense to see that it's inappropriate to be staring at a woman in prayer. As long as she's even remotely attractive and/or young it is going to be distracting for any man.

Chapter (4) sūrat l-nisāa

97. Indeed, those whom the angels take [in death] while wronging themselves - [the angels] will say, "In what [condition] were you?" They will say, "We were oppressed in the land." The angels will say, "Was not the earth of Allah spacious [enough] for you to emigrate therein?" For those, their refuge is Hell - and evil it is as a destination.

98. Except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan nor are they directed to a way -

99. For those it is expected that Allah will pardon them, and Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving.

100. And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many [alternative] locations and abundance. And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him - his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.

I agree with this brother, for the following reason:

Doing what's right entails doing what WORKS and what is PRODUCTIVE.

The best way for you to channel that energy of yours (this healthy energy that makes you disgusted at modern day degeneracy) is most likely for you to finish your university degree, and work within the system to have the maximum possible positive impact before you die.

Unless you believe that you have a lot of potential for positive impact as an urban nomad; which is possible. for example you could be a very charismatic person, who would talk to people 1 to 1 and influence them to go to the straight path. and in that case, you could have more success as an urban nomad than if you go through university.

But I find the latter proposition unlikely, and unless it's (or something similar to it) true for you, the best/right/correct thing for you to do is to continue on your current path.

Well first university is very expensive and can be a debt trap if his degree isn't useful. If he wants to learn more on islam he should learn in a muslim country imo, like in al azhar or medina university.

You put too much emphasis on being productive, without telling him why he should be productive in a kaffir society. How is him being a good working goy who pays taxes to this satanic system a productive thing? It's actually destructive.

All of us should do complete dissociation (baraa) from any kaffir country we reside in, and if possible go back to our muslim countries, or live in the wild.

In the Sunnah, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I disown every Muslim who settles among the mushrikeen.” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2645

I don't think that means what you think it means. I believe he is referring to those who settle in non-Muslim nations and live as the mushrik live instead of living as a Muslim. Think about it. If we weren't allowed to go into non-Muslim nations, then how could there ever be new Muslim nations? If Muslims never settle in the US, then how could the US ever come to the rightly guided path?

>Do you believe that the Prophet has abandoned the 4 million Muslims living in the US?

We don't have any guarantee that he won't. Especially since we've been warned by Allah ﷺ and the prophet (saw). The safest way is to disassociate from the mushrikeen, first step is to not imitate their ways.

Ibn ’Umar (RAA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“He who imitates any people is considered to be one of them.” Book 16, Hadith 1514

Thing is, the scholars have differing opinions whether you should make up for it or not. One side argue that there's no qadha/make up since the prayer should be done on that given time and date. On the other is that you should pay what is due. Either way, you should do it at the given time.

The first caliphate wasnt a democracy, only some of the sahaba were informed and it was forced upon those who rejected it. Because the khilafa became the jama'ah, whoever rejects it is a non muslim.

That's a ridiculous analogy. For HTers and people like them that say that all Muslim countries are kuffar and the khilafah needs to be established and everyone needs to pledge allegiance to them, well, isis (supposedly) did just that, so what's the hold up? Why don't they accept isis as the true caliphate and fix the ummah's problems already? Based on what "facts" do they reject it? Everyone else rejects it because they're khawarij, but HT can obviously not say this. So this just shows their hypocrisy.

so why haven’t people from anti-smoking groups started committing mass genocide? Like the truth movement and so forth? Obviously I’m not saying they should, I’m just wondering how they can justify it when they have the same beliefs.

It’s ALMOST like non-smokers want to murder all non-white peoples (actually that’s exactly the case).

Sinead o Connor- identity issues, I don't want to condemn her because she is obviously mentally ill, but its shameful she has clear race hatred issues. She followed up her anti-white anti-muslim 'tweet' with another plainly displaying narcissistic messiah complex saying 'the lord sometimes needs dirty workers'. Sadly I understand why she is so ignorant. In the west the concept of tawhid is so absent, with so much fragmentation and pagan beliefs imbued into society that the idea of one God and only one God for all people, a very simple concept, is not easily understood by people with poisoned minds.

This is very common with older converts though. A lot of older (convert when they're age 30+) are former drug users who delve into sufism or listening to those cringy autotuned hezbollah nasheeds. Just like an alcoholic should never drink alcohol again (of course we never drink at all but for example) these former drug users should really keep quiet with the vanity so they don't accidentally commit shirk. I spent so long on "Mount Stupid" just like them.

It's because it's clear that there are verses that call us to fight our enemies and they misunderstood by them and by some of us as well. Besides, they probably hate the fact that we clearly are against degenerates and any fault one of us did will be used as a reason to hate on us.

I'm guessing first or second year? University becomes much, much more interesting about mid-Junior year. Up until then it's just rehashing what you already did in high school. It's also way more challenging when you get into a Masters program. A lot of smart people go through the first couple of years believing they're the smartest people in the room. Once you're in the later stages and into the Masters program, you have to PROVE you're the smartest person in the room or you fail. Getting my Masters was one of the best times I ever had in academia. After that, though, it's all about publish or perish and that's a challenge altogether different.

Just give up brother. When their hearts are fixed on hating. They'll keep on hating. And like this >>32157 brother said, the are clear verses in the quran that is "violent" and just don't fit the current hippie-fied world of love and peace. Instead of dealing with the reality is that humans are violent and defensive over something that is cherished by them. But these same people justifies killing an unborn baby because of "human rights" when the problem is that they are more willing to spend money on themselves rather than their offspring and they cannot restrain themselves over sex. And they invented and pushed the idea that sex is normal and just fun things to do. When religion has lifted this "just fun thing" to a higher level where it is to be cherished and experience by two lovers on the bed on their wedding day. It's kinda ironic of them calling us animals, but they themselves justifies any degenaracy by calling humans as nothing more than animals and their urges are their master.

And asking this >>32157 brother, how do you deal when people start pumping the "violent" verses to justify their hate on islam. And would you mind sharing these "violent" verses. I would love to learn about it's context because all that I know is that those verses are about the end of times and during wartime or something like that. I know I can just watch any other people on youtube cherry picks the verses, but I can't deal with how smug some of them are and I just avoid them entirely.

>how do you deal when people start pumping the "violent" verses to justify their hate on islam

I usually approach them through logical understanding or more "unislamic" approach. For example, person says Islam is violent because verse that says Allah put fear in the heart of enemies or something along the line. Like I said, can't remember specifically. Anyway, first thing I'll do is to bring out context on where and why the verse was revealed. If that's not accepted then I take them to a route of saying Islam is not a peaceful religion like most people parroted. We're a practical religion. Someone declare war on us just because we're submitting to Allah. You betcha we're gonna retaliate. Then bring in the verse that says If the enemy asks for peace we do so. I forgot if there's a continuation of it that goes along the line of be wary of deception.

I think the problem that we have is marketing Islam as a religion of peace. We are definitely not. We seek peace but that doesn't mean we're gonna sit around when someone attacks us.

>inb4 that's we called a religion of peace, because we seek peace!

First and foremost, we're a religion of submission. Even the word Islam comes from word that means submit. Though, who started the The Religion of Peace trademark?

What's there to deal with? Kuffar also have rules of war. See eg the geneva convention, does it ban war? No it doesn't. It gives "rules" for it. But it still allows countries to murder people for no reason other than wearing the wrong uniform or living in the wrong part of the world. Now it just happens that Muslim states had (better and more humane) rules 1400 years ago whereas they're just starting to catch up now. The thing is, they then look up these laws and go "omg Muslims believe war isn't forbidden". This is the level of their idiocy.

When atheists or their pagan Mushrikeen friends ban warfare then let them raise the (non-)issue again.

No worries. If it's any it's my fault for not researching thoroughly about my religion. I was raised muslim, but I hardly ever read and research the Quran. My knowledge of islam is limited to what was taught in Islamic classes. Anyways, enough blogposting. I do see your points. Growing up my ustad always explain islam through practical means. And I believe we ARE practical. Haram things are haram for a reason and is actually quite explainable through logical reasoning.

>Though, who started the The Religion of Peace trademark?

Huh, who DID start it anyways? All I know it was a reaction towards 9/11's "anti-islamic" ideology. Prior to 9/11, islam was almost unknown or western people don't give a damn about muslims and islam. Only post that, that there's a lot of people suddenly took interest on Islam and criticizing every single aspect of Islam, the prophet (pbuh) and the Quran.

>>32393

I just want to know how to counter their argument. That's it. I admit, my knowledge on islam is very limited. And when I see ex-muslims (even more so if they are people from my country), I have this feeling of defeat because I know I cannot persuade them to return to islam because I lack the knowledge to do it and much like them I also sin (a lot).

Jesus (pbuh) is the messiah, but Mohammad (pbuh) is the prophet like moses:

The Prophet who will come from the "EAST". The Bible defined "EAST" to mean Arabia, and the lands of Kedar and Teman (Saudi Arabia today).

The Prophet who will come from "Arabia".

The Prophet who will come from the lands and "tents of Kedar" and "lands of Teman". Kedar and Teman (also called "Tema" in the Bible) are two of Ishmael's sons: Genesis 25:13-15.

The Prophet who will "crush the idols of the deserts of Kedar".

The Prophet who will "fight the idol worshipers" in the deserts of Kedar.

The people of Kedar will Glorify GOD Almighty, and GOD will Glorify His Holy Temple "in Kedar".

"Arabia will rejoice and blossom".

The Prophet who will come from the "Desert". Again, the Bible also defined the "Desert" to mean the lands of Arabia, Kedar and Teman.

The Prophet of the "New Law" & "New Covenant", whom the Jews "must not fear".

The Prophet who is "like Moses". Both Muhammad and Moses brought new Laws. There is the Law of Moses, which the entire Bible is built on, and there is the Law of the Holy Quran, which Islam is built on.

Also in the New Testament, Christ is recorded to have said this to the Jews: "So [For this reason; Therefore] I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to people [a nation] who do the things God wants in his kingdom [will produce its fruit]." (Matthew 21:43). Jesus Christ here spoke about foreign people; non-Jews. Jesus was a Jew and was speaking with Jews. Read more …

- By the way, the "Kingdom of God" here means THE COVENANT & RELIGION OF GOD on earth to the new nation.

Also, "(GOD's) burden shall be upon Arabia" (Isaiah 21:13) [1], means GOD Almighty's Divine Assignment to His Warriors and True Believers shall be put upon the shoulders of the Arabs through Islam and also through the 2nd return of Jesus Christ from Arabia, according to both Islam and the Bible [1]:

"Indeed, We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness upon you just as We sent to Pharaoh a messenger.

Rule of thumb is to go back to 5 pillars of Islam and 6 pillars of Iman. Vid related.

>Trying to fix myself, Is that even possible?

It's never too late. Take small steps, make small but permanent changes like doing the daily prayers on time. There a lot of muslim self-help/betterment books out there. At least in Malaysia. I can't recommend most them because they're in Malay, but what I can recommend is La Tahzan. I heard it's a great book to get back on your feet.

Another sure way is to go back Quran. Read it both the arabic and translation. Who knows, Allah will show you the answers you're looking for there. I heard plenty of anecdotes of it be it from reverts like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcxzIE4xxrI , speakers and even personal experience.

>I sometimes don't even think I deserve to wear a hijab, because I'm a really despicable person.

There's a story that had circulated by islamic teachers over here. Long story short, a grandfather/teacher ask his grandson/student to carry water from the river using a dirty coal sifter. The grandson/student protest since it doesn't carry the water but the grandfather/teacher kept pressing on. After some time the sifter is cleaned. The analogy of the story is that the water is like reading the Quran, even when you don't understand it. It will, eventually clean yourself. For me, the hijab, or covering your aurah i.e fulfilling your duty is like the story. It will eventually "clean" yourself if the niat is pure.

Another point of view is that, dress for the job. You want to be a good muslim? Adhere to dress code.

Also any muslimah should year the hijab, even if she is a sinner, because wearing it will be one less sin to worry about and also it will naturally push away bad influences and potentially attract good company.

Can I just read the Quran from front to back or is there any good reading orders?

Front to back is fine. Some folks like to read it in order it was revealed.

You can read it in any order you like. Qur'an is Qur'an.

I heard the hadith about paying 10% of ones income from grains, so I went to this website to double check. It seems to be accurate. Since I am a farmer, that would apply to me. If that is what the Prophet PBUH said to do, then that is what I need to do. It does seem like it is a bit steep in comparison with the 2.5% zakat on ones savings. Why is farming subject to higher zakat payments than other businesses?

Also, what the ☻ is this? This picture is taken from the zakat website I went to. Why would they have a calculator to pay zakat on Government Bonds? Government Bonds are investments that are based solely upon gaining interest….

Not during salah tho. It's considered makhruh to recite surah from the back before the front ones.

>>32832

What website is that. and maybe it's because of this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukuk i.e sharia compliance bonds.

How islamic are these (bonds)?

I have no idea. Islamization of once infested riba' practices has been here for a while. I only know of banking and stocks, even so to a general understanding of it. Here at my place, it is seen as a better alternative. For example the bank CIMB has its own branch called CIMB Islamic where everything under the account is handled through sharia compliance means. At least that's what I understand.

>companies might be trying to deceive us

Might be so, but they do have their own Sharia Officer to monitor it. You could contact them for more info.

Or you could shoot an email to that website. They're doing the calculation, they must also know the viability of an Islamic Govt Bonds.

Are there any resources/books /islam/ would recommend when it comes to seeing the arguments for and against Sunni or Shia being the genuine/ best approach of Islam?

The quran should be enough, theres no concept of infallible imamate in the quran, but here's a quick rundown:

Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) Says: “Steer Away From The Seven Ruining Sins.” When He Was Asked Which These Were, The Prophet Answered: “Associating Partners With Allah, Black Magic, Killing A Human Being Except For A Legitimate Cause, Devouring Usury, Pilfering An Orphan’s Property, Running Away From Battle And Falsely Accusing Chaste Believing Women Of Adultery.”

Its a divide that is well over a 1000 years old and both groups have sincere and intelligent people within them who have devoted their lives to the studying the issue and have still not come to a consensus. Whilst its true that the difference is importance and only one can be correct I would feel a bit arrogant to believe that I could just rely on my reading of a translation of the Quran alone to resolve the issue.

Not really, theres what 90% of what the muslim ummah agree on, which is the sunnah, and then there's all sorts of deviated groups like the ismailis, twelvers, alewites, ahmadis , druze , quranists that are in the 10%

>and both groups have sincere and intelligent people within them who have devoted their lives to the studying the issue and have still not come to a consensus.

How do you know that? Actually most don't even know much of their beliefs since it's hidden from them. Also, the consensus was achieved during the reign of Ali (ra), when he pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr (ra), the political party of Ali is not the same as the claimants today. I would say even zaydi shiites are closer to the Alid party back then.

>Whilst its true that the difference is importance and only one can be correct I would feel a bit arrogant to believe that I could just rely on my reading of a translation of the Quran alone to resolve the issue.

It's not your reading, it's that there is a complete ABSENCE of their most fundamental belief, the infallible imamate. Also, the post I linked has a good summary of their beliefs, including things like imams are better than prophets, imams can see the future and control the universe, imams can raise the dead ect.. I'm suggesting you read the quran, since with that light the heresies become clear. That's why 90% of muslims agree on 90% of Islam, with only a few difference in fiqh, theres no huge shia sunni split, its smaller than you think, and only rose to provenance recently due to irans shenanigans. Most people, not even the average muslim knew about twelvers before the 1979 revolution.

>Not really

When I say divide I dont mean as in an equal division so much as split or separation.

>How do you know that?

Partially personal anecdotes and partially because they appear to have their own scholars and institutions of higher learning. Again I know that this doesnt make them right but it does mean that there might be some substance to their claims.

>most don't even know much of their beliefs

>It's not your reading, it's that there is a complete ABSENCE of their most fundamental belief

Im highly ignorant when it comes to the beliefs of Shia Islam and still fairly ignorant when it comes to Sunni Islam which is why Im looking for material to correct that.

Looking into Islam. Posted here awhile ago about it but I'm looking into it again after looking into Christianity and it seeming to be a dead end.

I have a question though, about a year ago I was in an ambulance thinking I might die and a muslim friend encouraged me to say the shahadah. He guided me through it over text and I did it.

However I didn't understand the full implications of it, and immediately shrugged it off after I quickly recovered from the sickness I had developed.

If I wasn't fully serious about it, it didn't count right?


769b4e  No.32987

>>32986

You're right. The shahadah is what you say to officially become Muslim, but it doesn't count unless you mean it and understand it.


fb93f4  No.32989

>>32987

Thanks. The reason I'm double checking is that I felt serious about it at the time, but I also didn't really understand it our fully commit myself. Regardless I'm going to say it again if I revert in the future and act as if it was invalid, I just wanted to be sure

Your friend really loves you as a friend if he went through all the trouble to ensure you died as a muslim. I mean, he could get flakked by your family members (if they care about your religion), increasing the tension between communities (if you were in a religion back then) because of a sudden conversion before deathbed. To spend time together again in heaven is a bliss.

>tfw I only talk about Islam only when asked during my travels with my non-muslim friends

Yeah I haven't talked to him in awhile but he was very devout. He sent me an apologetics book that I read on it but I quickly fell away and got interested in Christianity. I've been looking into that for the past year but take issue with certain aspects of it that are making me turn to Islam for the truth

Why claim its a two way split then? Don't you know there are many islamic sects even within shiism? It's a false dichotomy. There are twelvers, zaydis, ismailis, alawites, druze ect.. also ibadism, but sunnism makes up 90% of muslims. Its not either sunni or shia, this simply is a false choice. If you want a quick rundown on shiite heresy >>32382 this is a good summary.

>they appear to have their own scholars and institutions of higher learning

they appear but isnt really true, and you could say the same for litteralt any religion, catholics, orthodox, jews, hindus, even islamic sects such as qadianis, all have institutions, it does not make them legitimate?

>Im looking for material to correct that

did you ever read the quran?
