Seriously though whats wrong with wearing something like this, http://www.shukronline.com/womens.html which at least has some sort of style. Why do some of our women feel, by covering up means wearing a tent , I know it does the job, but lets be more creative. [/QB]Well maybe because it fits the criteria of the hijab mar better and its the correct form of the islamic hijab... http://www.shukronline.com/womens.html does not compare with the jilbaab
  2. Once, a man saw in his dream, that a lion was chasing him. The man ran to a tree, climbed on to it and sat on a branch. He looked down and saw that the lion was still there waiting for him. The man then looked to his side where the branch he was sitting on was attached to the tree and saw that two rats were circling around and eating the branch. One rat was black and the other one was white. The branch would fall on the ground very soon. The man then looked below again with fear and discovered that a big black snake had come and settled directly under him. The snake opened its mouth right under the man so that he will fall into it. The man then looked up to see if there was anything that he could hold on to. He saw another branch with a honeycomb. Drops of honey were falling from it. The man wanted to taste the honey. He had one drop. The honey was very sweet in taste. So, he wanted to taste another drop, then another and then another. As a result, he got lost into the sweetness of the honey. Meanwhile, he forgot about the two rats eating his branch away, the lion on the ground and the snake that is sitting right under him. After a while, he woke up from his sleep. To get the meaning behind this dream, the man went to a pious scholar of Islam. The scholar said "The lion you saw is your death. It always chases you and goes where ever you go. The two rats, one black and one white, are the night and the day. Black one is the night and the white one is the day. They circle around, coming one after another, to eat your time as they take you closer to death. The big black snake with a dark mouth is your grave. It's there, just waiting for you to fall into it. The honeycomb is this world and the sweet honey is the luxuries of this world. We like to taste a drop of the luxuries of this world and it's very sweet. Then we taste another drop and then another. Meanwhile, we get lost into this world and forget about our time, our death and our graves." May Allah wake us up from the sleep and save us before it's too late. Ameen.
  3. A Meeting with Allah...
  4. As-salaamu 'alaikum wb wb... Brother, your question is one that many people wonder and ask questions about.... Hear is a similar question a brother already asked and it has been answerd by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid (www.islam-qa.com) TOPIC: He wants to talk to a woman before he proposes marriage to her QUESTION: I have never spoken to her, and generally do not speak to women. We sometimes exchange salams. How do I propose to her and approach her for marriage, since I am a practising muslim, and do not talk to sisters what is the best way? Should I go and speak to her and get to know her first, without stepping beyond the boundaries of Allah? or shall I propose straight away? I am afraid that because she does not really know me, and that we are from different cultural backgrounds I will be rejected instantly if I propose straight away without getting to know her first. Whilst on the other hand I fear that I am doing something Un-islamic If I talk to her and get to know her. I am in a difficult situation what is the best thing to do? ANSWER: Praise be to Allaah. Note that it is permissible for a man to speak to a non-mahram woman, subject to important guidelines and conditions, the purpose of which is to prevent fitnah and sin. These conditions include : [1]That it is not possible to speak to her through one of her mahrams or through a woman who is his mahram. [2]That should be done without being alone with her (khulwah). [3]That should not go beyond permissible topics. [4]There should be no fitnah (temptation). If his desire is stirred by talking to her or if he starts to enjoy it, then it is haraam. [5]The woman should not speak in a soft manner, [6]The woman should be wearing full hijaab and be modest, or he should speak to her from behind a door. It is better if they speak on the phone, and even better if they communicate via letters or e-mail, for example. [7]That should not go beyond what is necessary. ....If these conditions are met and there is no fear of fitnah, then it is o.k. And Allaah knows best. Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said, in his answer on the ruling about young men speaking to young women on the telephone: “It is not permissible for young men to speak to young women because of the fitnah involved, unless the girl is engaged to the man who is talking to her, and they talk only about matters pertaining to their engagement; but it is preferable and safer for him to speak to her guardian about that.†(al-Muntaqa min Fataawa al-Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, 3/163, 164). You have not proposed to this girl yet, so you have to be very careful and avoid exposing yourself to the causes of fitnah by taking all possible precautions to achieve your goal without approaching this girl. The basis for this is two aayahs from the Book of Allaah: 1 – “O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allaah), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honourable manner†[al-Ahzaab 33:32 – interpretation of the meaning] 2 – “And when you ask (his wives) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen, that is purer for your hearts and for their hearts†[al-Ahzaab 33:53 – interpretation of the meaning] Finally I would like to remind you that the Muslim’s standards when choosing a wife should be the standards encouraged by the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when he said: “Choose the one who is religiously-committed, may your hands be rubbed with dust [i.e., may you prosper].†(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5090; Muslim, 1466). And I warn you against everything that may lead you into doing haraam things or bring you close to that, such as being alone with her, going out with her, etc. I ask Allaah to make it easy for you to find a woman who will help you to obey Him. And Allah knows best
