    Masjid was full for Fajr - I hated it

    ^ Frankly speaking, it's none of yours or anyone else's place to label people as the 'most' or 'least' sinful, really isn't in our job descriptions as slaves of Allah, so we should keep our heads down stick to what we're supposed to do. We can say we dislike the masjid being empty as soon as...

    COOL! Channel 4 to Air Azan Throughout Ramadhan!

    wa-alaykum assalam, I don't think a TV channel is about to pull out all the stops to do Muslims a favour just for the heck of it, why would they do that? Sorry, in this dunya to get someone else to hold the door open for you is a tall order, to have people go out their way to do Muslims, (of...

    Masjid was full for Fajr - I hated it

    Think about a few points: - You don't know the condition of the hearts of all those people who are present. - You should be sincerely wishing Khayr for them, shaytaan is chained in this month, the one who makes them lazy and overpowers them all the other days is chained up - it makes sense for...

    What is your favorite Dua you recite often?

    Shaddad ibn Aws (radiAllahu anhu) relates that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that he (Sayyid al-Istighfar) most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is to say (the above du'a). That "If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day...

    Tell me good reason why I shouldn’t kill myself?

    Assalamu'alaykum Sister, Welcome to TTI. Firstly, just so it doesn't alarm you when you notice, or make you angry even, it was me who edited out the last section of your initial post and left the reason there instead. Secondly, it's really sad that you feel this way about your life and I'm...

    Working Women: early Muslim examples

    A muslimah can still work in a halal environment even if she is already provided for, shes allowed to earn her own wealth and this doesn't change the obligation on the husband to provide for her in anyway.

    Working Women: early Muslim examples

    I found my old post quite hilarious. Not that there's anything wrong with the contents as such, there are ways of saying things, it sounds like I just needed a cookie ..

    Working Women: early Muslim examples

    Sisters who need jobs, how about child minding? Nursery nurses and working with young children is not only enjoyable and rewarding, keeps you human. Also, you wont find males in those sorts of jobs very much, inshaAllah. Alternatively if you have studied something to a good level, become a...

    Is celebrating birthdays haram or encouraged?

    No, Birthday cakes are simply not Hindu culture, that's pushing it, lol. You make no sense, it is not clear what your point is at all. So which tradition is OK? American culture/Western culture which has nothing to do with Islam but has been happening for generations, but aspects of...

    Is celebrating birthdays haram or encouraged?

    Ok so if it's okay to celebrate our own birthdays with a cake and a party, let us do the same for the best of creation. You said it yourself, it becomes a tradition, a must. This was last years...

    Is celebrating birthdays haram or encouraged?

    Assalamu'alaykum, As Muslims we have two celebrations, the day of Jummu'ah and the two `Eid - why not be content with this? There are many aspects of un-Islamic lifestyles which are oppressive and become a source of dread and destruction for people. The culture of celebrating birthdays is much...

    Probably difficult to trust anyone anymore...

    Please refrain from generalisations about mothers, fathers, parents in general. We should speak good or remain silent in this regard particularly when we know their status before Allaah and that no other inidvidual in our lives can influence our entering Jannah as much as a Mother or Father...

    Probably difficult to trust anyone anymore...

    BarakAllahu feeki - my only purpose in asking this was because I thought sister Aisya may be from the subcontinent where often the rules of marriage/proposals can be as you know, very conservative where culturally speaking even what Islam permits in this regard is seen as unacceptable to some...

    Probably difficult to trust anyone anymore...

    So this person wasn't your parents choice at all, it was your own choice? If I am wrong, then can you outline what role your parents had in bringing about the acquaintence of yourself and this individual, was there any involvement at all? Remind me, sister, where are you from, are you...

    "Save TTI Family - Plan"

    Assalamu'alaykum, I don't really have a problem with people discussing science and other issues or even debating, why are people so averse to it? If you don't have the knowledge to discuss it then steer clear of it, or inform yourself and stand by what is correct, don't just get upset because...

    Who knows the answer to this easy question...

    Assalamu'alaykum, Not Tahajjud. It was the command to give charity before asking Rasulullaah :saw: a question, it was soon abrogated but `Ali ibn Abi Talib radiAllaahu an did it before it was:
