Male friends after marriage ?

Tirmidhi 3118:

Whenever a man is alone with a woman the Devil makes a third.

Hadith – Al-Tirmidhi.

Do not call on women in the absence of their husbands, because Shaitan might be circulating in you like blood circulates

Hadith – Fath-al-Qadir

The one who touches the hand of a woman without having a lawful relation with her, will have an ember (hot coal) placed on his palm on the Day of Judgement

If you cannot meet a woman without mahram, shake hands with her, be alone with her,  look at her (since you’re required to lower your gaze)

then how is this friendship going to form?

As far as friendship on internet is concerned just reason logically about it. Would a husband appreciate that his wife has a ‘close’ male friend besides him? Or would a wife appreciate that when the husband has a argument with her, he goes to his best friend to discuss the matter as opposed to making it up to her?

It leads to comparison between spouse as a friend and the close friend. This can cause problems in their married life. A friend who meets you only sometimes will always meet you with a smile (even on internet) but the spouse is living with you 24/7. There are more chances of conflicts and it requires patience and understanding to survive the relationship.

This can be hard to understand when you can see the other opposite gender being nice to you while your spouse isn’t as sweet most of the time.

Had it been permissible Sahaba’s and Prophets would become friends with women. But at least I do not know of Prophet (P.B.U.H) having female friends or any of the sahaba’s having them or any other scholar of Islam having it. Which makes it obvious it is not allowed in Islam.

 

Dumping Babies.

The following video had me thinking just how much “compassion” Allah swt has blessed even in animals. You’ll be surprised if you search in Youtube about animal compassion stories.

Have you ever thought, how is it, that human beings with the highest intelligence rate, still dump their own babies in garbage bags and dumpsters ? It is a cruel act ~ not to mention a very dangerous one for the baby.

Two things :-

1:- Accidental pregnancy ~ illegal pregnancy ~ pregnancy out of wedlock ~ what ever the reason :-  People, stand up and take responsibility for your uninvited little baby.  He is a living being ~ He is a blessing ~ He has been gifted to you to show you how to love and be responsible.  When was the last time you dumped a diamond ring ? Think about it.

2:- We believe in our blown up and misguided minds, that “WE” are the individuals who would be looking after or caring for the young baby ~ if we can not afford it ~ why have it ~ so dump it ~ right ? No ~ WRONG !!! You don’t wait for 9 months just to dump the baby. Its criminal. Even if you think, you can or will get away with it today ~ It will haunt your conscious every single day of your life.

Learn, learn from this Mama Cat in the video,  how she stuck by her “prey” just becoz she nursed them.  Have you forgotten that the Lord is the provider ~ not you ~ you are merely a vessel. He provides the tides and the wind to drift your sail.  The Almighty tests you ~ and tests you for what ??  For the CHOICE you make.

Don’t let go of that precious baby. He may not have a voice today but on the day of Resurection ~ You will be answerable.

Secrets of Surat Al Kahf

Ever wondered why Prophet Muhammad (SAW) asked us to recite Surat Al-Kahf every Friday?

This surah has four stories in it, having some morals, lets see them and understand what they are saying to us:

1) The people of the cave
It’s the story of young men who lived in a disbelieving town, so they decided to migrate for the sake of Allah and run away. Allah rewards them with mercy in the cave and protection from the sun – they woke up and found the entire village believers.
Moral: trial of faith

2) The owner of two gardens
A story of a man whom Allah blessed with two beautiful gardens, but the man forgot to thank the one who blessed him with everything and he even dared to doubt Allah regarding the afterlife. So his garden was destroyed – he regretted ,but was too late and his regret did not bene?t him.
Moral: trial of wealth

3) Musa(as) and Khidr(as)
When musa(as) was asked-“who’s the most knowledgeable of the people of earth?”” Musa(as) said: me…,but Allah revealed to him that there’s someone who knows more than him. Musa(as) traveled to the man and learned how the divine wisdom can sometimes be hidden in matters which we perceive as bad.
Moral: trial of knowledge

4) Dhul-qarnayn
It’s a story of the great king that was given knowledge and power and was going around the world,helping people and spreading all that’s good. He was able to overcome the problem of Yajooj-Majooj and build a massive dam with the help of people whom he could not even understand.
Moral: trial of power

In the middle of the surah Allah mentions iblees as the one who stirs these trials:
Behold! we said to the angels “bow down to adam”: they bowed down except iblis. he was one of the jinns, and he broke the command of his lord. will ye then take him and his progeny as protectors rather than me? and they are enemies to you! evil would be the exchange for the wrongdoers!

Now let us see what’s the relationship between surat al-kahf and the dajjal (anti-christ)?
Dajjal will appear before day of judgement with the 4 trials:

A) He’ll ask people to worship him and not Allah: trial of faith.
B) He’ll be given powers to start/stop rain and tempt people with his wealth: trial of with his wealth.
C) He’ll trial people with the “knowledge” and news he gives them: trial of knowledge.
D) He’ll control huge parts of the earth: trial of power.

How to survive these trials? The answers are in Surat Al-Kahf:

Survival kit 1: Good companionship
“and keep thy soul content with those who call on their lord morning and evening, seeking his face; and let not thine eyes pass beyond them, seeking the pomp and glitter of this life; no obey any whose heart we have permitted to neglect the remembrance of us, one who follows his own desires, whose case has gone beyond all bounds.” (Surat al-kahf, verse 28)

Survival kit 2: Knowing the truth of this world
“set forth to them the similitude of the life of this world: it is like the rain which we send down from the skies: the earth’s vegetation absorbs it, but soon it becomes dry stubble, which the winds do scatter: it is (only) Allah who prevails over all things” (Surat al-kahf, verse 45)

Survival kit 3: Humbleness.
[Moses] said, “You will find me, if Allah wills, patient, and I will not disobey you in [any] order.” (Surat al-kahf, verse 69)

Survival kit 4: Sincerity.
“say: “i am but a man like yourselves, (but) the inspiration has come to me, that your Allah is one Allah whoever expects to meet his lord, let him work righteousness, and, in the worship of his lord, admit no one as partner.” (Surat al- kahf, verse 110)

Survival kit 5: Calling to Allah.
“and recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the book of thy lord: none can change his words, and none wilt thou ? and as a refuge other than him.” (surat al-kahf, verse 27)

Survival kit 6: Remembering the Hereafter.
“ one day we shall remove the mountains, and thou wilt see the earth as a level stretch, and we shall gather them, all together, nor shall we leave out any one of them. and they will be marshalled before thy lord in ranks, (with the announcement), “now have ye come to us (bare) as we created you ?rst: aye, ye thought we shall not ful?l the appointment made to you to meet (us)!”: and the book (of deeds) will be placed (before you); and thou wilt see the sinful in great terror because of what is (recorded) therein; they will say, “ah! woe to us! what a book is this! it leaves out nothing small or great,but takes account thereof !” they will ?nd all that they did, placed before them: and not one will thy lord treat with injustice.” (surat al-kahf, verses 47-49)

Three beautiful thoughts from Mr. Ratan Tata

1. None can destroy iron, but its own rust can!
Likewise, none can destroy a person, but his own mindset can.

2. Ups and downs in life are very important to keep us going, because a straight line even in an E.C.G. means we are not alive.

3. F-E-A-R : has two meanings :
I. Forgot Everything And Run
II. Face Everything And Rise!!

Missing plane ~ tension between US and Russia ~ whats next ?

Over the years, this policy has been proven pretty accurate ~ Distract the common man with some kind of strange explosion !

Today is the 11th day into the disappearance of Malyasian Airlines flight MH 370. A lot of theories and speculations are floating on all news channels and the internet is flooded with vague pictures.

Everyone seems to paranoid ! Especially the US !!

Every tiny nook and cranny of explanation and possibilities has been worked on ~ all including “alien abduction” ~ all but that of a mighty power reigning thru heaven on this entire universe.

In my own tiny brain frame, I was wondering, why are we humans so week in heart and soul ? I wouldn’t want to jump on the band wagon and start coming up with theories too (we have too many people busy doing exactly that already ) But I was just wondering, why do we have so little faith in the Creator ?

We are so rattled by explanations and logic ~ Almost all the Prophets were granted some form of Miracles to gather followership ~ but isn’t it strange that today, if Dajjal came forth and started throwing his magical “miracles” ~ would we really try to use logic (as we should) or would we be so mersmerised by his charming tricks that we would blindly obey him (astaghfirullah) ? Just a thought !

One cannot even imagine just how devastated the relatives, near and dear ones of the passengers, must feel.  They need a closure and at the moment, that is one thing that no -one can provide for them.

May Allah swt bless them with patience and strength to bear whatever the outcome of this episode, may be. Ameen.

US to give Israel $429 million for its Iron Dome missile system

This news is reported from :- PressTV.

10003129_10151904820587234_361156289_n

The United States and Israel have signed an agreement under which $429 million of American taxpayers’ money “will be transferred immediately to Israel” to fund its Iron Dome missile system.

” The pentagon says the agreement was signed last week in a bid to “continue support of the production of the Iron Dome weapon system” and provide opportunities for US industry to “receive meaningful co-production opportunities for Iron Dome components.”

On March 4, the US House of Representatives also passed a bill which named Israel a “major strategic partner” of the US and called for the expansion of Washington’s military ties with Tel Aviv.

The legislation, which was passed by a 410 to 1 vote, calls for expanding the delivery of US arms and military technologies to Israel and commits US Congress to increase funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system.

Last week, some reports said funding for Israel’s missile systems has been cut in US President Barack Obama’s budget for fiscal year 2015.

However, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is the most powerful pro-Israel lobby group in the US, told Israeli press that the funding remained intact and that the lobby group will work with Congress to ensure the funding levels remain as high as previous years’.

AIPAC also said that it is not the US President but Congress that decides on the funding levels.

Israel already receives billions of dollars from the US each year. Under an existing 10-year aid agreement between Washington and Tel Aviv signed in 2007, $30 billion of American taxpayers’ money is flowing to Israel.

The US annual military aid to Israel has been elevated from $2.4 billion to $3.1 billion through 2017 under the existing agreement.

Meanwhile, US and Israeli officials have discussed a surge in US military aid to Israel in a new aid package that would extend through 2027.”

And here are just some of the thoughts that followed this news  :-

  • For America it would be cheaper to move Israel to the US..Most Jews live already there.And Tel Aviv is already ruling the Congress.
  • That is the “American” congress. Cutting of 1,5 million families of unemployed americans from unemployment insurance payments and food stamps but having no problem of giving Israel another $429 million on top of the billions send yearly in “development-aide” to Israel…
  • Israel is a bottomless pit. No matter how much money, weapons, ill-gotten donations is thrown in this bottomless pit Israel will never feel secure or legitimate. Any and every other country’s progress in the region will throw it into a hysterical existential fit. A perennial parasite for which nothing is enough.
  • One might ask:”how will the government pay for this money package?” Well slashing food stamps, denying unemployment benifits to layed off workers. This is treason! Where is the outrage from the democrats? Why can’t we get funding for affordable housing?
  • This is why middle easterners hate us!
  • US. With that kind of congress (voted only one against?) who needs enemy.
  • American economy is all ready destroyed,just watch and see the collapse.Lawmakers in US ignored citizens needs. Problem with infrastructure, problem with healthcare, problem with deficit, problem with railroads, problem with electrical grid, problem with crimes and killings etc. All this will need money nowww, but money is not there, because supporting apartheid, wars, dictators, war lords now they are third world country . US wealthy citizens are already pulling money out of US or buying gold and in some cases getting out with families. Europe and rest of the world should  consider, who will replace US in world stage.
  • What about giving a few dollars to their own people.
  • When are you, the American people, gonna put a stop to this absurdity?
  • Our President, Military, Senate and the rest of government is working for Israeli Jews and not for Americans. They are all on the payroll of Israel. And our people are Zombies and under the control of the Trashy tv shows produced by the Jews. We eat junk, we watch junk and we are ruled by bunch of junk politicians/ “Intelligent” service and Military.
  • What??? Our People are starving, homeless, dumbed down to zero, infrastructure in tatters, and we’re waging wars all over the world, and now? We Give our AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY to a bunch of rabid vampire Blood sucking Zionist JEWS!! WE ARE TRULY DONE!!! Our Congress is no longer ours, they are ALL brought and paid for by the vile scum of the AIPAC Jews!!!
  • We have to stop voting for these scumbag Democrats and Republicans…Congress is nothing but a Zionist controlled bordello
  • Zionist controls the entire US govt. i strongly believes Israel in the occupied territory is just an extended entity of the US stolen lands.
  • Unbelievable: Israel wrecks peace talks, continue stealing land and killing innocent Palestinians and america continues to reward them. Stealing from the American public, the biggest criminals on earth???
  • More welfare for the chosen people lol more welfare for the people that think they are special, and are smarter, wiser and better at business then all others. Why would the chosen people, the smartest people, ever have to stoop to taking money from others if they are so great?
  • How useless is this iron dome, when thousands of missiles are raining down on the little miserable entity, Israel. They think they are above god these rabid ziodogs!
  • and more !!!
