Ruling on a Woman Asking for a Divorce from Her Husband

580444_435966516477009_787197777_nIf a couple differs in their Islamic perceptions. One who grow up in the West and the other in the East. And they quarrel constantly and can’t come to an agreement. At what point is talaq considered? Is it wrong for a sister to ask for talaq? Will she be punished on the Day of Judgment? Does the Arsh of Ar-Rahman shake once talaq is asked for? This is what one sister, growing up the West is being told by her husband from the East.

Da`eef (Weak) Hadeeth

541537_498992406784989_1999429850_n“When you call upon Allaah, then supplicate with the palms of your hands, and do not supplicate with their backs, and when you finish, wipe your face with them.”

Da`eef (Weak). Related by Ibn Maajah (1181, 3866), Ibn Nasr in Qiyaam al-Lail (p. 137), Tabaraani in Al-Mu`jam al-Kabeer (3/98/1) & Haakim (1/536), from Saalih ibn Hassaan from Muhammad ibn Ka`b from Ibn `Abbaas (radi Allaahu `anhu) as marfoo`.

This is a weak sanad due to Ibn Hassaan, who is munkar in Hadeeth, as Bukhaari said; Nasaa’i said, “He is abandoned in Hadeeth”; Ibn Hibbaan said, “He used to have female singers and listen to music, and he used to narrate fabricated reports on the authority of trustworthy narrators”; Ibn Abi Haatim said in Kitaab al-`Ilal (2/351), “I asked my father (i.e. Abu Haatim al-Raazi) about this hadeeth, to which he said: `Munkar’.”  Read the rest of this entry

Why do some people become ugly?

1426744_566640710067911_473538680_nWhy do some people become ugly?
Have you ever wondered why so many people who were bright and beautiful as children, however, as they grew older their innocence and beauty eluded them? Well, wonder no more – Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) explains to us:

“The person who is righteous and honest, his honesty is manifest from the radiance on his face, and his honesty can be known from the glow that is on his face, likewise the (opposite for the) sinful one and the liar. The older a person gets, the more this sign becomes apparent. Thus a person as a child would have a bright face, however if he becomes a sinful person, adamant on committing sins, at the Read the rest of this entry

by : Abdullah ibn Muhammad As-Salafi

An important book shows the corrupt belief of Shi’ites. The author said in the introduction, “I wrote this book for a number of reasons including: (1) The increased efforts of the Shi’ites to spread their ideology in the Muslim world.
