If you want to salvage your marriage then arrange for her some psychological counseling. Even if you don't want to salvage the marriage I would suggest going to counseling for yourself.

The only good Umayyad ruler

This is incorrect. Hisham bin Abdul Malik and muwayia RA were outstanding caliphs. Yazid bin al walid bin Abdul Malik was also outstanding as a caliph but he only reigned for one year.

If he was so bad why did Hasan give him the leadership of caliph, give him bayaan, and why did Hussien participate in mu'wayia's wars. There is always more to the story.

In Islam we have the concept of tawbah. Tawbah doesn't only apply to you it applies to everyone.

His physical description is well recorded. Even how many grey/white hairs he had when he died is recorded by Anas bin Malik.

More mud slinging....

Salaam, brothers and sisters. The way I was taught Islam growing up is that it is an all-or-nothing religion. I commonly heard other Muslims around me say that Muslims who drink or eat pork are "not Muslims" even though they are otherwise practicing Muslims. I took this for granted but I am now seriously questioning this black-and-white view. A part of me strongly believes that the world is shades of gray and therefore the way we practice can also have gradients without making us "bad" Muslims. I'm seeing that this strict view of Islam is forcing away most people since they live in the gray-scale world. I want to believe that God considers us Muslims as long as we have the core values, despite other things we do. Can somebody back me up with some text or references? Are there examples of Muslims at the time of the prophet who drank, ate pork, gambled or had sexual relations but were still considered good Muslims because they demonstrated loyalty to the prophet and upheld justice and overall good morals? Salaam.

An numan RA was an alcoholic who got lashed repeatedly. In fact one time Umar RA once said May Allah curse you. To which rasuallah SAW said do NOT wish for the shaytaan to over take your brother.

Another sahaba (cant remember his name) told rasuallah SAW I love Zina (fornication) and said rasuallah SAW make it halal for me. The story goes on and rasuallah SAW reasons with him and after wards the sahaba would later say "there was nothing I hated more than Zina".

There's plenty of more stories. These kinds of things happen to all people from all places of life.

$200 isn't bad, if we get divorced then I'm stuck paying alimony anyway since I'm a man

see more

You only Islamic pay alimony until the kid reaches a certain age. Last I remember it was 7-10 years old. Btw divorce is not cut and dry. In fact in certain situations you can get your mahr back. You need to research this issue more throughly.

Original Poster2 points · 2 years ago

At which point is the mahr agreed upon? I would hate to progress several months with a potential spouse and then have to bail because she wants too much cash

see more

Ibn tayimmah says the mahr should be stated as part of the marriage contract in order to negate a chance of dispute. I personally would recommend this because unfortunately many marriages break down during the wedding day because the woman's family is demanding a larger mahr and is emotionally blackmailing/manipulating the woman to do this. When you have stuff in writing it closes the door on a lot of fitna.

You didn't ask for this information but as the male you can request to delay some or part of the mahr till a fixed time but it must be agreed upon with the other party.

You should definitely look up the logistics of marriage, it's a really big eye opener.

Answering "Where are you from?" Can take so. long. I just cut to the chase and say I'm a convert. Occasionally someone doesn't like that and insists on hearing where I'm from and pretends to know the tiny village I came from.

Then it's, "Do you speak Arabic?" "Why not? It's easy!" "Why doesn't your husband teach you?" "DIVORCED?!?!" Then a lecture on how it's more religious to stay married no matter what the circumstances than to seek a divorce.

"Why don't you come to the mosque more often?" Please see above.

DIVORCED?!?!" Then a lecture on how it's more religious to stay married no matter what the circumstances than to seek a divorce.

You should tell them Abu bakr and Umar both had divorces. If I'm not mistaken it was three each. At the end of the day sometimes somethings are beyond your control and you just have to trust in Allan that allah's judgment is better for you.

I personally believe everyone needs a source of inspiration or a goal in life to fuel that desire to be a better person or in your case a better Muslim. Allah SWT made my source of inspiration was learning about the prophets, sahabas and other pious predecessors who overcame great difficulties through resilience, taqwa, imaan, and trust in allah. There might be certain topics that you will enjoy learning about more than others, and when that does happen know that it's ok.

When I first converted, I asked two of the masjid board members to help me find the name. I asked the first guy for a good first name, he said Zuhayr. I asked the second guy for a good last name, and he said Gilani. Later found out that that was their first and last names, respectively.

I didn't really like the name so I just kept my real name, Alex Cullen. AFAIK, when the sahaba converted, they didn't change their name.

see more

Sahaba only changed their name when it meant something bad. Pre-Islamic arabs kept some of the most interesting names. They had names like deceiver (do not know the word in Arabic), shaytan, Abdul shams (slave of the sun), ect.. Meanwhile they would give their slaves very good names with good meanings. One of the rights a child has over their parents is that they must be given a good name with a good meaning.

Such a great lecture! Jazak Allah Khair for sharing.

Shaikh Hamza raises a really important topic that has been on my mind for a long time now.

I really want to study my religion properly and I'm not sure what is the right way to do this. I really want to study it and understand it correctly because my biggest fear is sharing information that would be wrong, such as misunderstanding a text because I didn't get the context behind it or not knowing the root definition of a word.

Ugh, I'm very bad at expressing my question but basically I would love to be a source of correct knowledge to my community. I would really love to provide absolutely correct information to my family, friends, the people who come to me with and even my future children if Allah Al-Aziz has written marriage and kids for me. So essentially someone like a daaiya, in a way?

Are there any authentic online classes I could take? Any suggestions on how I can pursue this?

Jazakum Allah Khair

Jazak Allah khair <3 Thank you so very much.

Have you or anyone else used the Online Islamic University by Dr. Billal? How about any courses provided online by the one from Bayinnah Institute by Ustadh Nouman?

see more
  • From what users on Reddit have said online Islamic university is more geared to self-study. While I would say self-study has it time and place I would first have to say you need to build a strong base on the fundamentals of Islam with a teacher; whom you have placed your trust in to give good information as well as being available for questions you might have later on. Online Islamic university has honestly benefited many people but the only draw back I've heard was that it requires tons on time on your own part since its progress is based on your efficacy. I would recommend you do something with someone so they could give you clear objectives to achieve, so that you could eventually have self-efficacy on work ethics as well as a solid teacher. I'll be honest with you people procrastinate in high school/college/university and forget they have those bad habits which might get in the way of long term lifetime goals. So if you feel like I'm beating you over the head with that I'm sorry but im being realistic about people's bad habits.

  • Bayyianah is actually a extremely great course to build a base on the Arabic language. I have friends in my MSA group that have taken the course have have benefited substantially. One of my friends actually taught Arabic at the university for our MSA for a semester and many people benefited from that class as well. Ustad Noaman is extremely charismatic with his teaching and alhamdulilah it makes the course even more enjoyable. I would recommend you do his tafsir of juz amma (30th juz) and see if it's something you can handle. However from my understanding you must initially have the some knowledge about the Quran and already know how to read the Quran with proper tajweed. It's an intensive course so you might get overwhelmeded really fast and drop out from being overwhelmed.

  • Please don't think I'm trying to hold you back but understand just about EVERYTHING has a draw back. Once you weight in the pros and cons you then can make a informed decision on what's best for you.

I was taught that tahajuud is specifically the night prayer after you have slept having prayed isha and awoken before fajr time

Yeah, hence I felt taraweeh is like a workaround of Tahajjud. Like, basically the same prayer but for those who are scared they won't be able to get up after sleeping before Fajr, they pray it after Isha. I remember this from my grandfather, who wouldn't pray Witr after Isha but would do it after praying Tahajjud. The only time he would pray witr after Isha is when he wouldn't be planning to get up for Tahajjud. Just thinking out loud here, I can be completely wrong. Don't have any sources

see more

Tarweeh is separate from tahjjad. As for the witr thing it's grounded in authentic sources with Umar RA and Abu bakr RA. One would pray witr closer to isha and the other would pray witr closer to fajr but before. Rasuallah SAW approved both ways.

Tarweeh is separate from tahjjad

Do we have sources for this? I couldn't come across any authentic hadith which talks about prophet(saw) and Sahaba praying Taraweeh after Isha and then getting up for Tahajjud.

They have a extra zakat fee for their members. I think it's like 20% of their money. Agra khanis have a very similar thing and I'm sure the bohori Shias as well. It seems like it's only Sunnis who don't have that extra tax. The ithari Shias have an khulms tax but I don't know the specifics.

It's just dirty politics. Next time the topic of music comes up mention also the Shia ulema also declare music haram.
