  1. You mean "what they thought Jesus looked like". Actually the "part hair in two" was something new for me, I didnt know he (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) used to do that. I used to hated that hair style. But for now, I cant grow a shoulder-length hair because its a school rule to keep short hair. Maybe after highschool, insha Allah.
  2. Wait - I thought that hadith was talking about if you are pleased with someone and their character, then marry them quick cause if you dont there will be corruption as in adultery happening in the land? Does anyone has a Tafseer for this hadith?
  3. Wa'alaikum mussalam; Apparently you used the word "but" for some reason. This thread was opened to expose the physical attributes of the Prophet (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) that is immitable by Muslims. Thanks for the link.
  4. "Indeed for you is the Messenger of Allah is a beautiful example" [Al Ahzab, 33:21] This thread is special in its own way. The guys can do it. The ladies can force their husbands into doing it. And they get rewards if done properly, insha Allah. Its a win-win situation. GO GO GO ------------------------------------------ Physical Attribute of the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) There are lots of hadiths describing the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam), but I'll just skip to the part where once can immitate him (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) physically. ------------------------------------------ #1: GROW A SHOULDER LENGTH HAIR AND PART IT IN TWO Bara' ibn 'Azib (RA) reported that the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) was medium in height, with broad shoulders and with his hair reaching his earlobes. [sahih Bukhari] (this is not the full hadith, I'm only taking these parts as for them to be more organized) Anas (RA) reports, "The Prophet's hair reached till half of his ears (it rested above his earlobes)." [sahih Muslim] 'Aishah (RA) relates that the Prophet's (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) hair was between the lengths of Warfah (earlobe level) and Jummah (shoulder-length). [Abu Dawud] Ibn 'Abbas reported, "The Mushrikin used to part their hair and the people of the the book (Jews and Christians) used to leave their hair hanging naturally. Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) thus used to leave his hair hanging naturally, without parting it. The reason for this was that the Prophet (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) in the early period of Islam preferred to follow the People of the Book in matters where there were no command of Allah (subhanahu wata'ala). Later, when the Prophet (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) was commanded by Allah (subhanahu wata'ala) to oppose the People of the Book, he parted his hair in the middle. [sahih Bukhari] ------------------------------------------ #2: WEAR A BEARD Everyone knows this and I am tired of typing from this book. Moving on. ------------------------------------------ #3: WEAR A LONG LOOSE DRESS AKA THAWB, PREFERRED COLOURS ARE WHITE OR RED [continuing from the previously mentioned hadith narrated by Bara' ibn 'Azib (RA)] He also remarked "I have never seen anything matching the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) in beauty/elegance after I saw him once wearing a red cloak" [sahih Bukhari] Umm Salamah (RA) relates, "The most beloved item of clothing to Rasulullah (salallahu 'alahi wasallam) was the long shirt." [Al Hakim] Bara' ibn 'Azib (RA) reports, "I have never seen anybody more handsome in red clothing than the Messenger of Allah." [Tirmidhi in Ash-Sahama'il] Anas reports, "The garment most liked by the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) which he wore was from Yemen." [sahih Bukhari & Muslim] Samurah ibn Jundub (RA) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) said, "Wear white clothes and shroud your dead in them because they are clean and pure." [Al Hakim] ------------------------------------------ #4 WEAR A BLACK TURBAN AND HANG IT BETWEEN YOUR SHOULDERS, NOT BEHIND YOUR BACK Qutaybah reports from Jabir ibn 'Abdullah (RA) that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) entered Makkah and he was wearing a black turban. [sahih Muslim] A companion reports, "It is as if I am looking at the Prophet (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) on the mimbar (pulpit) and on his head is a black turban. The tail (shamlah) was hanging between his shoulders." [sahih Muslim] A companion relates, "I saw the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu 'alahi wasallam) in a dark coloured turban." [Al Bayhaqi] ------------------------------------------ HAVE FUN! Wassalamu 'alaikum.

    The Beard!

    Funny question. I dont even know what the guy looks like!! Well, if he gave out that opinion, then of course he couldnt grow it longer.... Allah knows best.

    The Beard!

    Wa'alaikum mussalam; Yeah, thats basically what the scholars over at Islam QA is saying. I now follow that opinion. Just started following this today, haha...

    Beating wives?

    Okay, Jazak'Allah Khair.
  8. Assalamu 'alaikum; before I start, let me just say this thread is NOT for debating, it is but to present an opinion in which I just found out existing today. So dont give me any crap and start a debate after this. Anyway, these are the opinions regarding beards that Muslims around the globe follow today: 1) The beard is but Sunnah (jazak'allah khair to Moslem for pointing this out) 2) Shaving the beard is Haram, but one can trim it 3) Shaving the beard is Haram and one cannot trim it, at all. I found this quite surprising because I used to follow the opinion of number 2. These are the scholars' (may Allah have mercy on them) daleel regarding the trimming of the beard, meaning the one where one should only have a fist-length beard: and And these are their views that supports letting the beard grow: Actually the scholars provided more proof, but I'll just give you the link to the whole fatwa: Cutting more than a "handful" of the beard --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (Nothing to do with thread) One a light-hearted note, I've always loved Islam QA because it's user friendly and sometimes funny. Here's a few funny quotes from their fatwas regarding beards: Even the title of the fatwa's funny! Look: Ruling on trimming the beard because it looks scary

    Come on guys, these questions are asking whether Allah allows it or not. Please don't say "I think". Please. Anyway. Jazak'Allah Khair. But I dont find the answer convincing because he doesnt emphasize on number 1 and 2, it kinda leaves with 2 questions instead of an answer.

    Beating wives?

    Assalamu 'alaikum; I have a question and is lazy is to read the previous 6 pages; Islamically, aren't men only allowed to beat their wives if it only involves her disobeying Allah? Or could one beat her just because she refuses to clean the house or whatever because she's lazy? ------------- For the sake of the thread, it reminds me of this hadith: "If I were to order anyone to bow down (make Sujood) to other than Allah, I would order the wife to do so for her husband. By the One Who owns the soul of Muhammad, if a wife does not fulfill her obligations towards her husband, then she will not have fulfilled her obligations towards Allah." [Ahmad] To avoid argument, here is the background of the hadith to avoid misunderstandings: How to become a Good Wife
  11. I vote for Islamic lectures and the caring and nurturing of our own Hereafters.
  12. Assalamu 'alaikum; To me, it doesn't matter who the recitor is. The main and most important thing is their Qirat matches the English translation of the Qur'an. I absolutely love Ghamdi's recitation of Surah At-Taubah, verse 33.... and Mishari's recitation of Yaseen is just beautiful cause it matches the English translation, masha Allah.... So, basically I dont stick to one recitor but I'd take any recitor whose Qirat matches the English translation of the Qur'an....
  13. I think Sumaiya's question should be rephrased "Which is the Bible that is used by the majority Christian?". Anyway, to answer the question "What is the real Bible", there is no real Bible. The word "Bible" was never an Arabic word to begin with. There is the Injeel, but even in Arab countries it translates as "Injeel of Matthew", etc. So, to Muslims, the real Injeel is the Injeel of Isa (as). However, one Muslim shouldnt imagine the Injeel of Isa to be like a transcript or a book; the Injeel is what Allah revealed to Isa (as), and whatever Isa (as) says and does, that is the Injeel. Same with the Prophet (saw). He only memorized the Qur'an and acted out its commandements, etc. and the Sahabas (ra) recorded it. Except this time it was preserved by Allah, unlike the Injeel of Isa (as). My point is: the Injeel isnt necessarily a book or a text. And the Injeel of Isa is lost and corrupted. Only scraps (heck less than scraps in fact) remains in the Bible today, and Allah knows best in which verse is from Him and from Isa (as). Source: Ahmed Deedat/Kalamullah
  14. Because maghrib's the time where the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said that many shaytans are around and to discouraged going out before praying maghrib. Something like that.

  15. Theres nothing to argue; all men find beauty and attraction in their own way. And so some men like dark skinned women, etc. Some men get attracted to colour of clothes, etc. And so my point is: Dont find those reasons strange.
  16. I have a life. Go get a wife. Loser.
  17. Agreed. Jazak'Allah Khair for the advice. Ameen to the dua. Alright, everyone. Go listen to the lectures. Please?
  18. Not personal taste issues. Common sense issues and islamic concern. No one freestyles or battle in text. Like I said, tis stupid. So if you want to write something write something Islamic. Something to reflect. Not battle like girls and exchange rhymes. Know what, my advice to you all is, just listen to Hereafter lectures, and once you go back to these sections, you'd feel the same way I do, insha Allah.
  19. I doubt one would be saying that if they died while writing a transcript of themselves rapping. To sum up on what I said, I hate the idea of rapping and battling in text. Thats all. In text. Its just so stupid. So think about it. All of you.
  20. Unfortunately, many many many people have misunderstood my post. First off, I never said rap was Haram nor did I say rap was wrong as a whole. When I said "people who listen to rap have no life" I meant Muslims who spend time listening to Eminem and 50 Cent. And when I said "we're Muslims and we dont do this kind of crap" and when I said "an extreme waste of time", I meant specifically the stuff that's going down in this section. The whole IDEA of freestyling, battling, in TEXT, or recording oneself and writing a FRIGGIN TRANSCRIPT, in a MUSLIM FORUM, is SO PATHETIC. And when I said "hate", I mean it in the full sense of the word. Seriously. Come on. The Sahaba (ra) spent their time describing their tahajjuds to each other and people here are doing these... sigh.
  21. Come on guys. Freestyling in text? Battling in text? In friggin MUSLIM forum? Look, I'm not denying theres plenty of stuff in other sections that is also an extreme waste of time, but seriously, these are really stupid and unbeneficial. I could just make the same thread in all the sections, but they just dont deserve it. This section deserves it. People who listen to rap have no life. People who battle and freestyle in text have no life. People who freestyle and record themselves and write transcripts of their girly unbeneficial singing just so they could post it in a Muslim forum have no life. I especially hate people who curse in their lame "poems" as well. I'm not saying these things are Haram, but COME ON. WE'RE MUSLIMS. WE DONT DO THIS KIND OF CRAP. WTFISH MAN. I dont care if this section's dead. I'm just saying these things so that some people would just wake up. Listen to Islamic lectures. Please. PLEASE.
  22. You're not a scholar nor are you a man. So the "hijab colour" and "skin colour" etc. reasons may cause you to feel weird, but then again, like I said, you're not a man. And the scholar provided plenty of other points, walhamdulillah. Allah knows best.
  23. This is Shirk. Unless its from the Sunnah. I've never seen anyone practise this, the only thing I preform is dua before eating... Well, unless its from the Sunnah. For example before the Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) goes to sleep he recites the 3 Quls (Al Ikhlas, Al Falaq and An-Nas), blows onto his palm and rubs it on every part of his (saw) body that is reachable.
  24. As-Salamualaikum; First off, I'd like to say to stop making comments like these when one says "Is this Haram or not?" So, first of all, dont state your personal views when someone asks "is this Haram or not?". Second, don't give them your personal views and explain scientifically, cause it would make the questioner feel, "God. I wish he would stop talking. I really want daleel and this whoever is speaking about personal views and explaining it scientifically. I feel like I'm in school". And explaining scientifically will never get you nowhere, even in da'wah, go listen to Yasir Qadhi's lecture entitled "Male Bias Myth". As for the question, here is a fatwa by Sheikh Munajjid regarding the ettiquttes of eating: The etiquette of eating, with detailed evidence However I found no specific fatwas regarding blowing on food/drinks alone, I cannot pinpoint whether its Haram or Makrooh, but what I can say is its definitely bad. Here I found a hadith, but I was never able to found one regarding on blowing on food. Oh well: Yahya related to me from Malik from Ayyub ibn Habib, the mawla of Sad ibn Abi Waqqas that Abu'l-Muthanna al-Juhani said, "I was with Marwan ibn al-Hakam and Abu Said al-Khudri came to him. Marwan ibn al-Hakam said to him, 'Have you heard that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam, forbade blowing into drinks?' Abu Said said to him, 'Yes.' A man said to him, 'Messenger of Allah, I am not quenched from one breath.' The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam, said to him, 'Remove the cup from your mouth and then breathe.' He said, ' (But) Sometimes I see something floating in it?' He said, 'Then pour it out.'" Book 49, Number 49.7.12 (Translation of Malik's Muwatta, Book 49)
  25. As-Salamualaikum; Jazak'Allah Khair for sharing your story. May Allah increase you in health and Iman. I end with this hadith: Abdullah Ibn Abbas (radhi Allahu 'anhu) reports from Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) who said: `Whoever, makes Istighfaar increasingly, Allah will grant him relief from every worry and grief, and will make easy for him each difficulty that he encounters and Allah will grant him provision from where he never expected to get it.'
