Us..

"you know i was just talking with my little bro few days back and i had just realized something..........The statement that everyone "Life is too short" is actually true just think about it. Were sent down to pass the tests tht are through in fromt of use and we can actualy and truly conquer them from the purity of our heart, which is to be a good muslim.. take me for example as you know , i used to say and still say that i will start wearing a scarf soon inshallah......since i think the 2nd year of uni.... and just image how many years have passed already around 2 now did I start wearing scarf NO!! i just wasted two years of my life... so my point is that ppl should realise their mistakes and start improving themselves......coz its sure as hell does take just couple of days....:D so what do you think?!?!?"

Well, I think what you think.. You got it sweety.. life is waaaaaay too short.. But not short to the limit that it can break us.. We all have a chance.. Not one, but more.. You said it yourself.. Two years or more.. Right?! The problem is us..
US.. This is the reality of our being:

"When adversity touches the human being, he implores us while lying down, or sitting, or standing up. But as soon as we relieve his adversity, he goes on as if he never implored us to relieve any hardship! The works of the transgressors are thus adorned in their eyes."
Qur'an [10:12]

"And He gives you all kinds of things that you implore Him for. If you count GOD's blessings, you can never encompass them. Indeed, the human being is transgressing, unappreciative."
Qur'an [14:34]

"Proclaim, "If you possessed my Lord's treasures of mercy, you would have withheld them, fearing that you might exhaust them. The human being is stingy.""
Qur'an [17:100]

"We have cited in this Quran every kind of example, but the human being is the most argumentative creature."
Qur'an [18:54]

"The human being is impatient by nature. I will inevitably show you My signs; do not be in such a hurry."
Qur'an [21:37]

"We created the human, and we know what he whispers to himself. We are closer to him than his jugular vein."
Qur'an [50:16]

'Life's too short'...Damn right! while we are here we are to Praise our Lord ALmighty. I use to say the same thing as u. It started as, il wear a hijab when i do Hajj, then things got worse so it was more like il now wear a scarf when i go uni. But i kept thinkin why am i putting it off. What if 2moro never comes. If im to wear a hijab im wearing it to please Allah, so i kept thinkin bout that and now i wear hijab.
If we have the frame of mind that life's too short, shouldnt that encourage us to continuously strive to become better people? Inshallah i pray that Allah guides me and helps me strengthn my Imaan.
Sorry sister if this was not relevent to what you said, its jus that i wanted to express what i felt at the moment. newayz keep up the good work.

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

WOMEN IN THE VEIL:

Her long, thick, shiny black hair
Fell against her back.
Her rich, copper skin
Gleamed in the sunlight.
Her slender figure outlined,
With her soft voluptuous curves.
But when she stepped outside,
She became a ghostly figure of the night.
Nothing more to the people
Than a dark, shadowy figure of oppression.
But she showed them.
As she walked down the street,
People made way,
Men lowered their gazes in utmost respect.
And others whispered,
As she held her head up high,
With pride in her belief
And showed them how oppressed she really was!
While they whistled at their women,
Looking them up and down as they were pieces of meat to be inspected?
She pitied their savage ways.
As she walked into the arms of her partner,
Her only love,
Her husband.
Where she was transformed,
Into her beautiful self,
For only his eyes to see.

I think women today are very forward, but its society that has brought all the corruption, many women that are married still ignore Hijab, may be it can be the husband that refuses it upon then, in either case may allah Help all the brothers and sisters.

I dont think we are in a place to judge. Inshallah we shud pray that Allah will guide them and make them see sense. ALthough we should try and put the message across without directly refering to a certain person/thing. etc.
At the end of the day a woman should know its her farz to to wear hijab and whether she acts upon it, is solely up to her. Allah has given her the free will to make the right decision. The situation about whether married women should wear hijab should not be separated from the main issue of the hijab. despite the fact the woman is married or not she should still consider the hijab. She should not wear it cuz 'shes muslim' but because She knows that it will please Allah (swt). Her husband should also be aware of the Hijab, therfore he should encourage it, rather than discourage it.
Its an obvious sign that this world is corrupt, this inshallah will make us appreciate the Hereafter more. Anyways all i say now is that may Allah help me and other Muslims to always do the right thing, things that i no will please Him.

Ure so right, Allah is the judge of all, and i totally respect that comment you made about hijab, its a faraz upon every muslim sister, However, No dis respect, I did not mean to implement it in that way nor was i being judgmental, its something i come accross everyday, women saying 'my man prefers me without Hijab'.

I think it totally sucks, it was my opion, and i am a opioniated muslim, no matter how i feel or how we all feel on this issue, its islam, and depending on our imaan(faith, and the strength of it we have to acomplish what is asked from us in the Quraan.

Like they say 'NO BUTS AND AND NO IF'S'.

SALAAMZ AND THANKS FOR THE POINT.

No matter how opinionated or how strongly we feel bout something, we should try and restrain ourselves in sayin such things. Allah will ask us why did we say such a such? and what will we say. What if what we say makes ppl do things for the wrong reason, do you get what im sayin.Those women that disregard the importance of hijab coz of their 'man' are jus weak in imaan and we should pray for them.
Irfan you make good points and yeh we need people like you that allow others to question their behaviour.
Something worth listenin to 'The Veil - Dawud Wharnsby Ali.

slmz sista, can u post somethin on dreams, somethin, anything.

Thank you, again you made a verygood point which i totally respect, that being opionated is may not good. But remember, no matter what you do or what you going to do in life, you always weigh the pros and cons.

This is what the sisters are lacking today, they just want to empress society around them, as if its all one huge competition. But my opions lay around religion, and i often question my self Why, When i turn to good sources and Hadith's i get my answer.
I feel its this western society playing with our innocent sisters minds, although you bare responsible for your own actions.

We as individuals will be questioned on the day of judgement, not as a community but as individuals. HOW WILL WE ANSWER?

THANKS ALOT.

May be some people are faster than others, or their upbringin g was not so islamic, there fore some people i believe take time to realise, may Allah give those sister Hidiyaat, Futher more i would like to say, the government is not making life easy for the muslim society, so i urge all brothers to act upon the teachings of the prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon him), teachings, and be good role models for the younger generations. This is a great sacrifice, and mark my word,Allah will reward everybody for their Rightfull deeds.

Inshallah

Asalamualaykum
Nice poem Irfan.. 'Women in Veil'.
Thers so much controversy about the Hijab. All i say for now is..basically is the same as what blogspotting said. Its a woman's farz to wear a Hijab, with the intention that it will please Allah. So, Regardless of whether shes married or if her husband says so, the same rule applies. Inshallah Allah helps me and many other muslim sisters. Keep up the good work Sister. and Irfan keep on ur comments, u say some interesting things, and thanks for introducing this site to me. Its full of alot of knowledge.

Qur'an 49:13. O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most noble among you in the sight of God is the most pious. Verily, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

"O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed and Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah Al-Ahzab 33:59)
