Women / Re: Is Head covering compulsory according to Quran?
« on: March 17, 2016, 04:21:22 AM »
Actually, I just read the Arabic of that hadith (it says made covers/khumur with it). Thus, there is a possible explanation they could give, which is: their current headcovers were not long enough to cover the chest, thus they cut their waist sheets and made headcovers from them, which were then long enough to fulfil the alleged request.

In any case, the original point still stands about the plural khumur and the command being to cover the chest not head, see discussion:
Sometimes I like Wakas posts which made me enjoyable to read.  :P

Salam Sstikstof...

Thank you very much for helping me...:)...i wanted to ask...someone said that...we should not call Almighty"Aap" or something with respect like...example..."Aap kese ho"...but instead we should we..."Tu" or "Tune" for it?..m not english..its just same...HE...thats it...but...its not case in HIndi or other Indian u clear it?..coz i ask duas in Urdu or Tamil..tats y...Thanks and regards..

Salamun alaikun
In quran, almighty uses "we" to indicate himself as sole authority. In the same way we should call him with humble, submissive way and respect. In hindi ap is perfect where tu or tune defines lowerity in expression. Ap will be perfect.

Salaam Sstikstof,

there is no single agreed upon definition of Sunnah. Some individuals/sects say that whatever the Prophet (PBUH) said or did in private, or in public, is his Sunnah. Others say that whatever is in the books of hadith comprise the Sunnah. Still others say whatever the Prophet (PBUH) did in his capacity as a man/father/husband is not Sunnah; only the things which he did in his capacity as prophet/messenger comprise the Sunnah. It is, therefore,  safe to conclude that there are as many variations in the definition of Sunnah as there are sects and sub-sects in Islam. Each sect thinks its definition is the right one.

I, personally, believe the Quran to be sufficient enough for us as a guide. But I have no problem with people upholding the Sunnah of Muhammad (pbuh) provided that it:
1)Is not seen nor accepted as something 'Divinely appointed' in the name of God's ordained religion of Islam incumbent upon us all to uphold.
2)Provided that it does not in any way contradict the message of the Quran.

I agree, I have analyzed this sunnah fact. In my opinion, It is just practical example of Quranic injunctions. So prophet Muhammad showed us the best examples/samples in his ways. That doesn't mean those examples/samples are religiously fixed to follow. Everybody have their own mode of following Quranic injunctions what suits them with circumstances presented before them. Modes with fixed form results horrible output for those circumstances.  For example, Quran says to go to makkah & do Hazz, now it is not possible to go there by foot or walking, which would be illogical. It will be individual's mode that how will he go makkah (by flying, car, taxi or by ship) which is called flexibility. Some people doesn't understand the flexibility provided by the Quran.

Salam Sstikstof...

Understood. Thanks for reply.  It was just a glitch to know the boundaries. Nothing else. Thanks brother.

Shalom / peace Sstikstof......can you answer bro Joseph's powerful question please???>>>

Do you really think that these great spiritual masters / highest ranked prophets of God who we are encouraged to emulate would ever engage in practices such as these? What does your internal moral barometer (91:7-10) tell you? Please think about this.

I'd really like to know your response.  Thanks.
Salamun alaikum, Can you provide one unequivocal evidence from Quran or any Quranic verse without any assumption/argument on the basis of which masturbation or self-satisfaction is somehow un-quranic? Please remember that Quran is unambiguous scripture, it has clear verses, it is complete for guidance & fully-detailed scripture which has detailed explanation of everything & also what is easy to understand/ponder/reflect & also Quran has the interpretation of its own (Its already interpreted), So i expect answers basis of that.  I have studied on it. Prove me wrong.

And principally what I have checked in my humble general understanding that the verse that can be pointed out for such acts of arousal, is 24:30 & 24:31 as intently vision & guarding private parts phrase goes even with spiritual part & visions. The principal facts in these verses that can be referred are the chance of any sort of sexuality & sexual intent thoughts. I tend to disagree with verse 23:5-7 with regards masturbation that you have referred, because in verse 21:91 which clarifies what is the actual expression "guarding private part". I also tend to agree a part of another article that the arabic words such as "from indulging with anyone" are suppressed after hafizun which can be assured by the next indications of the verse & context.

And regarding the term "Fahisha", you said, 'Fahisha' is anything which is evil, an excess, an enormity, immoderate, beyond measure or an excessive sin.'

One question arises that is masturbation even without lewd thoughts an evil, an excess, an enormity, immoderate, beyond measure or an excessive sin?
That means are we unintentionally violating the implicit indications of Quran by having wet dreams?

Wazu( Abulation) need not be repeated if a person had Wazu for one Salath.
What about next salat?

Is wudu valid for next one or more salah once it's done? Or do I have to do wudu each time of the salah as a requirement?

Dear Sstikstof

Wa alaikum assalam

I have respectfully shared my thoughts on this topic. I simply cannot validate something beyond what my humble understanding of the Scriptures allow me to. I have also shared the need to err on the side of caution in matters of religion, even when there may be perceived grey areas or perceived silence on a matter in the Quran.

In my humble view, a believer should continuously strive to seek to purify themselves attempting to reach the highest levels of spiritual purification. The need for patience (sabr) / curtailment is often emphasised when it comes to desires (4:25).

Now I respectfully lean on verse 91:7-10 (an internal barometer we all have within us).

Albeit that it not for us to ‘identity’ distinctions (2:285), let us take the examples of the noblest ranked prophets (whoever they may be as they do exist in ranks 2:253).

Do you really think that these great spiritual masters / highest ranked prophets of God who we are encouraged to emulate would ever engage in practices such as these? What does your internal moral barometer (91:7-10) tell you? Please think about this.

I think the more pressing / pertinent question here is what is the need to engage in this act? This will assist one in getting to the root cause of the desire and then for it to be managed. We simply cannot get the Quran to validate a particular action because one may feel inclined to it. This is not the correct approach. (I am not suggesting that you are doing this, but the point still stands)

In the end, I respectfully remind of the following verse:

“So keep your duty to God as best you can / what you are able (Arabic: ma is’tata’tum), and listen, and obey, and spend; that is better for your souls. And whoso is saved from his own greed, such are the successful”
Finally, given the number of threads open on this topic now, including those that you have started, please can I kindly request that you do not attempt to open up another thread on this topic. If you need to discuss this topic, please can you kindly make use of a thread which is already open as those shared below.



[1] Masturbation
[2] Masturbation is not Haram/Unlawful!
[3] Hifz al-Furūj (Guarding the Private Parts) evidance regarding verse 23:5-7
[4] Arousal Without Thinking Bad

I understood your point. My previous posts were results of lack of knowledge. My apologies for that.

I have analyzed & spiritually without any RELIGIOUS guidance, I felt it is something that can be defined unnatural & BAD.
But one question remains, if we try to become spiritually pure, why wet dream happens that inspires you to involve to this acts? One way or another it happens with lewd thoughts. How do you explain such thing?

And what does Quran specifically says about bad thinking or lewd thoughts only?

As Salam Walaikum All...

Hope you are all fine...i have some new doubts...hope u guys wont mind...

Is it compulsory to be in the state of ablution to read quran?...

and according to this verse..."Whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, abstain from it" according to this verse...are we commanded to follow hadeeth?...tats wat...these hadeeth following people claim..i we follow hadeeth?..well...m jus asking...sorry for such a silly question...

And according to this "GOD will not take you to task for oaths which you may have uttered without thought, but He will take you to task for oaths which you have sworn in earnest. Thus, the breaking of an oath must be atoned for by feeding ten needy persons with more or less the same food as you are wont to give to your own families, or by clothing them, or by freeing a human being from bondage; and he who has not the wherewithal shall fast for three days [instead]. This shall be the atonement for your oaths whenever you have sworn [and broken them]. But be mindful of your oaths!' Thus God makes clear unto you His messages, so that you might have cause to be grateful."...will i be accountable for the promise i had forgotten?..i mean..i m not sure...whether i made promise on God or something...just i dont remember...but once..i mom...forbade me to talk to one of my friend...she was girl indeed...and she asked me to promise...and i promised her...but...i cldnt hold on to the she was one of my best friend..n i spoke to her...n we are still mom doesnt have any prob with me..talking to her...but...what i did earlier...was it wrong?...shld i feed 10 people or fast?..

I hope you guys can help...thanks and sorry..

With best regards,
If the Quran is in your laptop or pc, Would you do ablution for touching the laptop/pc? If the Quran is in your cell phone device, would you do ablution for touching cell phone? If the Quran is in your husband's memory, would you do ablution before touching & listening? So if the Quran is written in a book, what would you do?

Sunnah means "example" of following the deen/religion. In short, technique/example of following the injunctions of Quran.

Is so called "sunnah" referred to only those injunctions of the Quran which is religious/worship related or everything else also can be included in this boundary?

Quran principally dedicate "intentions". Every piece of works have intentions behind it. And besides this, it is a common sense. Why would you freak out as im sure u aint gonna look at your husband like father. this is common sense. Quran tells about common sense. Most of the people take this common sense into something serious due to lack of realization.

Sorry about this, but seriously, such acts should not be encouraged under the general Quranic theme of chastity and purity. Plus, I don't get why anyone would *need* to do could just turn on the TV and watch five minutes of some absurd children's show. I think that would kill the temptation.q
i know. But just want to know joseph islams actual view and actual boundery. For example kissing is not bad if its between mother and son. But boyfriend and girlfriend lustful kisses go under sexual act. So is this kind of act i can expect in masturbation too? I hope u understood.
