Bismillaher rahmaner rahim. ( Glory be to Allah and i begin with praise of Him’.)

The beauty of our women.
She’s smart, modest, coy and witty, mashallah and she is so pretty. shes your , mother, sister and neice, without whom i know, i’d be missing a peice. she works, cooks and cleans, loves to drive, travel and ooh she also loves to read.

Most non-muslims would say that she was oppressed but thats probably because of the way that she is dressed, if only they knew she was too keen to impress! Allahu Akbar! she would so openly express…that life was nothing but a test. Read the rest of this entry →

How to find Ramadhan? – Yasmin Moghaded

Published July 10, 2013 by AbdulJabarAzimi

“Don’t let this Ramadhan be just a holiday of rituals. Don’t finish reading the Quran without it transforming you. Don’t feed your body at suhoor, but starve your heart of Qiyam. Don’t reduce this downpour of mercy to just a month of sweets and lavish iftars. Seek Allah swt, you will find him. Take sincere step towards change, transformation, redemption. If you do, you will find him in front of you. Find him this month. He’s been there all along. closer than your jungular vein. Look and you’ll find. Walk and you’ll arrive.”

Yasmin Moghaded

Wife-beating is not allowed under no circumstances – A sincere advice to Ignorant Muslims and Islamphobes

Published July 9, 2013 by AbdulJabarAzimi

391043_272277462819390_100001114147291_693547_1736965279_n“It is evident from many authentic Traditions that the Prophet himself intensely detested the idea of beating one’s wife, and said on more than one occasion, “Could any of you beat his wife as he would beat a slave, and then lie with her in the evening?” (Bukhari and Muslim).

According to another Tradition, he forbade the beating of any woman with the words,

“Never beat God’s handmaidens” (Abu Da’ud, Nasa’i, Ibn Majah, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Ibn Hibban and Hakim, on the authority of Iyas ibn ‘Abd Allah; Ibn Hibban, on the authority of ‘Abd Allah ibn ‘Abbas; and Bayhaqi, on the authority of Umm Kulthum).

When the above Qur’aan-verse authorizing the beating of a refractory wife was revealed, the Prophet is reported to have said:

“I wanted one thing, but God has willed another thing – and what God has willed must be best” (see Manar V, 74).

With all this, he stipulated in his sermon on the occasion of the Farewell Pilgrimage, shortly before his death, that beating should be resorted to only if the wife “has become guilty, in an obvious manner, of immoral conduct”, and that it should be done”in such a way as not to cause pain (ghayr mubarrih)”; authentic Traditions to this effect are found in Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Da’ud, Nasa’i and Ibn Majah. On the basis of these Traditions, all the authorities stress that this “beating”, if resorted to at all, should be more or less symbolic – “with a toothbrush, or some such thing” (Tabari, quoting the views of scholars of the earliest times), or even “with a folded handkerchief” (Razi); and some of the greatest Muslim scholars (e.g., Ash-Shafi’i) are of the opinion that it is just barely permissible, and should preferably be avoided: and they justify this opinion by the Prophet’s personal feelings with regard to this problem.(Quran Ref: 4:34 ) ”
The Prophet explained it by “dharban ghayra mubarrih” which means “a light tap that leaves no mark”. He further said that face must be avoided. Some other scholars are of the view that it is no more than a light touch by a siwak, or toothbrush.

To confirm the above concept, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “How does anyone of you beat his wife as he beats the stallion camel and then embrace (sleep with) her?” ( Reported by Al-Bukhari)

In another hadith, he is also reported to have said, “Do not beat the female servants of Allaah.”So we conclude Wife-beating is not allowed under no circumstances

Hold Women Back From Allaah?

373814_194553953969670_172334839524915_395241_804614438_nIt is essential to understanding the nature of relations between the sexes, to recognize that men and women are different. This understanding should not, however, be misused to enforce biases or justify mistreatment of women, as is often the case. Our religion is founded upon a clear understanding of the nature of the sexes. This is why Islam is right. The majority of Muslims have a faulty conception of the nature of the sexes..

Away from the common catchphrases such as “Islam protects women,” “Islam is the first religion to give women their rights,” and “Islam honors women — which are all very true —, many followers of Islam, let alone the discourse of many modern-day Muslim movements, testify to the contrary.

Islaam Is For Everyone – In Islaam,Do Men have superiority over Women

Published July 6, 2013 by AbdulJabarAzimi

295859_147653691986436_1464493_nNo where does the Qur’aan state that one gender is superior to the other.

Some mistakenly translate “qiwamah” or responsibility for the family as superiority.

The Qur’aan makes it clear that the sole basis for superiority of any person over another is piety and righteousness not gender, color, or nationality:

“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know each other. Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (one who is) the most righteous of you. And Allaah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). “(Qur’aan 49:13)

The husband is responsible for the maintenance, protection, and overall headship of the family (qiwamah) within the framework of consultation and kindness. The mutual dependency and complementary of the roles of males and females does not mean “subservience” by either party to the other. Prophet Muhammad on whom be peace helped in household chores in spite of his busy schedule.
