Good deeds? Bad deeds?

Keep your intentions good and inshallah you shall be rewarded even if things don’t work out as you hoped.

The person will be rewarded for his or her good and bad deeds according to the following saying of the Prophet Muhammad : Your Lord, Who is blessed and exalted, is most merciful.  If someone intends to do a good deed but does not do it, a good deed will be recorded for him.  And if he does do it, (a reward of) ten to seven hundred or many more times (the reward of the good deed), will be recorded for him.  And if someone intends to do a bad deed but does not do it, a good deed will be recorded for him.  And if he does do it, a bad deed will be recorded against him or God will wipe it out.

Inshallah I shall try to post more often.

Religion

Heres something that I found, I agree with it, what do you guys think.

Religion ,I believe that people can take it to the extreme and twist it to suit their own purposes, I also believe that the most well meaning people out there do not realize that they are acting contrary to the very beliefs they espouse but instead believe it is there duty to shove religious or anti-religious beliefs down ones throat.

Mother?

A short Question!  

What is Islam’s view on the position and accountability of Muslim women in society?

But a long answer 🙂 

Women were created to be half of society. Women are to assist in ensuring the morality, preserving the safety, and securing the well-being of future generations, and to become mothers. Women were created to become mothers and educators of children, among other significant roles.

In our era, some women have lost pride in being or becoming mothers. The honor, dignity, and admiration for motherhood has fallen. Some regard the title of  “mother” or “homemaker” as demeaning. There is no shame or degradation in being a homemaker or mother. There is nothing amiss in loving and nurturing the family. On the contrary, motherhood is the most important foundation on which children depend.Mothers are the educators of children; they are their teachers. Children look up to their mothers; they admire them, learn from them, inherit their character, their moral beauty, and their compassion.  Motherhood is something beautiful, precious, and important. It is a long and difficult journey to become a devoted mother.

Nevertheless, the importance of fatherhood should not be lessened. A father’s role is extremely significant to the family’s well-being and his absence would create difficulties. Yet, the absence of a mother could be a disaster for a family. Mothers are the threads that keep the family united.

Mothers are the builders of society. They are the ones who foster great leaders, scientists, doctors, husbands, wives, fathers, and mothers. A mother can change a whole society by raising one child. This child could reform a whole nation; in essence, mothers write history! 😛

Lets take this forward 

Does Islam encourage women to be independent and self-sufficient? Can they be free to choose what they want to become in life?

Women need to be independent and self-sufficient before marriage, during marriage, and even in the event of a divorce or death. Women should be prepared, at any given moment, to depend upon themselves. No one is certain of what the future holds for him or her. Being independent and self-sufficient can have many beneficial consequences. It creates feelings of confidence, security,and courage. However, Islam also wants a woman to be mindful that some of her decisions should be made in consultation with someone in her life, like her parents, for example.

 

Don’t forget to vist the Question about women page which is updated with ever question I post!

Confusion or Power?

This is a verse from the Quran which is misused!

“And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former times of ignorance”(33:33).

And stay quietly in your houses.” This Qur’anic verse seems to be in regards to the wives of the Prophet; however, some Islamic scholars also apply this verse to all Muslim women. Is this verse directed at all Muslim women or just the wives of the Prophet?

 

Answer)

This particular verse was addressed to the wives of the Prophet, but this does not mean that every time the Qur’an referred to the wives of the Prophet it was exclusively for them and no other women. While studying the Qur’an, one will come across many verses in which Allah addresses the Prophet, but, in truth, Allah is not only addressing the Prophet. Allah required the Prophet to acknowledge the revelations and wanted the rest of the Muslim community to listen and administer them.

“Stay quietly in your house” does not mean that women cannot venture outside of their homes. It is informing women of unnecessary excursions or “questionable environments.” Let me give you an example. If on the battlefield there are enough men working and fighting, then there is no need for women to be there. Certainly, women may assist within other areas, but they should not be on the battlefield, on the frontline in combat.

Some scholars also have interpreted this verse as a forewarning toward one of the wives of the Prophet, informing the wife not to cause any adversity—to remain home. Years after the Prophet’s death, one of his wives assisted indeflecting a war against the legitimate caliph of the time, Imam Ali in the battle of Camel, in which thousands of Muslims died.

You said: You pathetic poor excuse for a human being. Islam kills- and the prophet mohomaded was an illiterate goat herder -and one of the many prophets around at the time. Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help” – This is a religion of piece? Only a sadist would say something like that. Can you tell me why the Quran is so violent?

First “You pathetic poor excuse for a human being” , That’s not a nice thing to say.

Secondly: When you read this page, read it with and open mind not with hatred about Islam:

You said ” Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help” – This is a religion of piece?”- To being you’re spelling of peace was wrong, Now think about it this way Allah (all glory and praise be to him) created you! And send down the holy  QURAN to be your help and told you what was right and wrong, If your going to ignore What You Creator has told you and you are going to reject him; of-course he is going to punish you for you arrogance and you will end up in Hell, But if you follow Islam and its ways properly( which are not seen by any nation has a whole  in this world! ) You will have heaven! 

You said: ” Can you tell me why the Quran is so violent?”

The Quran is not Violent, some of  the thing you think are violent are there for a reasons! give me and example where you have read it is violent!    “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help” If this is what your taking about being violent , it is a reference to heaven and hell, for whom do bad there is HELL and Good there is HEAVEN!

If you have any other question ask!

Can a person donate some of his organs to a patient who is in need of transplantation?

Does Islam allow this? This is a scholars view 

The late Ayatullãh al-Khu’i had different verdicts on “major organs” and “minor organs”. He had allowed donation of minor organs but disallowed donation of major organs.A criterion of defining “minor organ” is its ability to regenerate by itself. So donating blood,skin drafting and bone-marrow transplants would be considered as donation of minor organs and
would therefore be permissible. But the kidney would be classified as a major organ and, therefore would not be permissible for donation. This is also the view of Ayatullãh Jawãd Tabrizi.

Ayatullãh Sistãni, however, does not differentiate between the minor and major organs. As long as the donor would not be seriously handicapped himself or herself, there is no problem in donating one’s organ, minor or major. Therefore, donating a kidney also would be permissible provided the donor has another healthy kidney.

Interesting! 🙂

How does Islam view the attributes of women?

All Quotes are from the Quran 

Women and men are born with the same humanistic qualities and are partners in humanity, according to Islam. A woman is as genuine of a human being as a man, and must, therefore, enjoy the irrefutable and undeniable rights as Allah’s creation.

A woman is in no way born imperfect or less intelligent than that of her counterpart

“We created man [men and women] in the best of molds”

A woman’s innate disposition in distinguishing right from wrong is the same as a man’s; she is not more predisposed for evil or its urge  

Personally I think a lot of people forget that sometimes or don’t know that! 😦
