I am twenty-eight years old and have a new baby boy who is four months old now. Six weeks after the baby was born he needed to have surgery and I almost lost him. Ever since I am so scared I am going to lose him again. I am a practicing Muslim I pray, fast and do my duties as a Muslim. I am not perfect but I am trying. My question is how I…
I have confusion regarding the cause of earthquakes. Majority of our religious scholars are of the view that it is a result of our sins. They refer to those ahādīths in which Prophet Muahmmed (sws) said that earthquakes are a form of God's punishment but Mr Javed Ahmed Ghamidi denies this view. May I know what his arguments are in this regard?
Hi i am a muslim and i find confusion and contradiction between verse 4:48 and 4:153. In verse 4:48 the meanings are" Allah will not forgive those who considers partners with Allah". It's about polytheists. And Verse 4:153 says " we forgave the people the disbelievers in the era of Moses."
So why Allah treats people differently even though they fell in the same category. Please answer.
I have just received an email mentioning an event of the Caliphate of Hazrat ‘Umar (rta). It says that Hazrat Umar (rta) punished his son for adultery with the punishment of 100 flogs and during this punishment his son died. This whole incident is reported as a high sample of justice from the Caliph, Hazrat ‘Umar (rta) that he didn’t even space his own son. I am little bit confused as never heard of any…
My question is that how do you determine if a nation suffering from e.g. civil war, external attack or any political or economic crisis is actually under the punishment of Allah or the test of Allah (swt)?
My question is that, if someone studies Qur’an and Sunnah without any prejudice, bias or any such ailment and after studying if he reaches to a wrong conclusion and follows it for his whole life (because he thinks it is right and according to Qur’an and Sunnah), then would he be punished for following something wrong, which he thought was according to Qur’an and Sunnah? For example, we have Muslim brothers and sisters who prove…
If someone, who is otherwise a good human being, has committed a murder in the past under some circumstances, and the person he killed was not a good human being and he had rapped 2 women, will he ever be forgiven for that sin? Furthermore the person who was killed misbehaved with the father of that good guy that made him so angry and he decided to kill him. And after that murder that guy…
Islamic punishments like, for example, chopping hands off for stealing and capital punishment for murder sound unfair to many. Can these punishments be awarded and executed nowadays when everything is defined by the value of acknowledged human rights, it is often maintained? Many western countries already hold them to be unethical. Instead of these extreme punishments that were exercised during the remote past, now stress is laid on lighter version of punishment for any social…
Can the Islamic State punish a non-Muslim citizen who commits offense against a Muslim? For example if a non-Muslim citizen steals a Muslim's property, will the culprit's hand be cut? Or if a non-Muslim citizen commits adultery with a Muslim citizen, will the non-Muslim culprit be sentenced to death (rajam) along with the Muslim culprit?
I was thinking in terms of any Ta’zeer punishment or Hadd for the one who consumes riba, haram meat, meat of dead-haram animals as there were Hadd punishments for various acts in the Qur’an. Since there are very serious warnings for consuming riba (consuming), but without any worldly punishment.
The Quran says that if a believer kills another believer then he will go to hell but what if it is in self-defense? What should I do then? Where I live there are many youngsters that are Muslims but are very criminal and they do very bad things. What should I do when for example they try to break into my home?
I wanted to know what is the punishment for leaving the obligatory prayer. Also explain how to atone for sinning after repentance.
What is the penalty prescribed by the Sharia’h for accidently hitting and killing a person in road accidents?
What is the Islamic stance on punishment in graves? Does not this belief negate the idea of God being just?
I live in UK and am trying to dispel some of the misconceptions that I have regarding some sensiytive issues. I was very concerned about the issue on punishment for apostasy. In this regards I came across Mr Shahezad Saleem’s views on the following youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8Y6WpnFKJM>.
My question is directed towards Ghamidi sb or anyone else learned from his team.
You constantly maintain that a non-Muslim/Zimmi who reviles the Prophet (sws) is not to be slain but there is a hadith From Ibn Abbas and it appears in (Sunan Abu Daud
Reference : Sunan Abi Dawud 4361, Sunan Nasai and lots of other hadith books with 'reliable' chain of narrators. And has been classified as 'Sahih' by Sheikh Albani as well.
It is as…
What is meant by rebellion?
I have just read the above thread on your website:‘Unjust’ Punishment in the Grave?) I don't understand what you are talking about. Your argument is not coherent nor sound.
1.Firstly you assume that "the third question concerns the sins mentioned in this Hadith. Obviously, they are of two different categories. While the first is not a major sin, the second definitely is." While the Ḥadīth clearly states: "These two persons are being tortured not for…
