Assalamu alaikum hopeseeker,
I think your question is a very good one.For me,I don't think I have enough knowledge yet to convince anyone but,I am studying everyday.My only worry is that so far,I still do not know if there is an obligation for me to share my newfound knowledge or not.

Thank you brother Joseph for taking the time to answer my question,I really appreciate it.I guess it will take some time before I break free of the mindset that I need to be told exactly what to do in detail for every scenario.JZK

Assalamu Alaikum,

Is there flexibility with regards to the timing of salat when travelling as there is with general form and

duration?For instance if one is travelling across different time zones,is strict adherence to correct

timings expected?and how does one achieve that?

Islamic Duties / Praying as part of a congregation
« on: February 19, 2015, 10:42:26 PM »
Assalamu alaikum.

According to the Quran,we should maintain an intermediate tone during salat,17.110.My question

is,when praying as part of a congregation,does that only apply to the leader?and what does an

individual do if the leader is praying silently as some do.

Saladin alaikum,

Are there any verses in the quran that talk about a believer staying married to someone that believes in God but,doesn't really practice the faith as he should?

Thank you,and may God continue to increase us all in knowledge.

Dear sister seraphina,
Like you,I also recently started to re examine my faith and improve myself Alhamdulillah.I have also been having nightmares and anxiety attacks.I just take it as one more thing the devil is trying to use against me and with Gods help it will stop eventually.
May Allah help us overcome all the things we struggle with in this life.

Salamun alaikum,

Please can someone help me understand if the following will make a marriage invalid or not:

1.If both the bride and groom do not attend the wedding.

2.If the dowry is spent by the brides family and not the bride herself.

Salamun Alaikum,
I have been studying an interpretation of the quran for a few months now and although I am still in constant fear of getting things wrong,Alhamdulillah I am glad I have access to websites like this one to aid my understanding.I Was just comparing myself to my poor old grandmother in her mud hut,with no access to a quran in her language,unable to read or write,practicing her faith in the traditional form as she was taught all her life,and I wonder if I would be judged more harshly because I have more access to knowledge than she does.

Assalamu alaikum everyone,
Please for give me if my question has already been discussed before,i haven't read everything on the site yet.A few months ago i was going though a crisis of faith,and in my search for answers i came across this website.I started reading an interpretation of the quran because i was only able to recite the arabic version without actually knowing what anything meant.Alhamdulillah,with contstant prayers for guidance i am discovering what my faith is really all about.
I guess my question is,from the qurans perspective;will i be committing a grave sin if i do not share my newfound knowledge with my family and friends?I am afraid that a lot of my current views would be considered almost blasphemous by most of the people i know.
Thank you and may Allah continue to help all of us understand the Quran.
