(maybe i lied about the compilation)

FREE!ES RinHaru Moments [eps 01 - 03]

I really, really enjoy doing compilations, so I figured this one may come in handy for those who may be interested in either editing videos, gifs and the likes or writing meta :D

I’m going to be including:

  • Interactions
  • Them being in each other’s thoughts
  • Looks
  • Third party commentary
  • Parallels
  • Flashbacks shots and similar imagery (regardless of context)

I plan to do this every three episodes; so here is the first installment. Please, do let me know if I missed anything! (I also tried to link to gifsets but came up short for some scenes; so if you’ve got any of those, send them my way and I’ll add them!)

Warning: heavy image-post is HEAVY

Please make dua for me, I reverted a few months ago and I am having doubts about why I converted. Sometimes I look at Islam and I love it and believe it with all my heart, and other times I think it's a man made religion that suppresses women. I yet to this day do not understand why women have to cover from head to toe while praying. I cannot wrap my head around it, or the multiple wives thing. It just doesn't seem holy to me. It seem fabricated by man.

Salamun Alaykum sister,

I think it’s about time we talk about this issue cause I am being asked this too many times.

Lets start with the ayat that allows polygamy:

an-Nisa 3. If you fear that you will not be able to observe their rights with exact fairness when you marry the orphan girls (in your custody), you can marry, from among other women (who are permitted to you in marriage and) who seem good to you, two, or three, or four. However, if you fear that (in your marital obligations) you will not be able to observe justice among them, then content yourselves with only one, or the captives that your right hands possess. Doing so, it is more likely that you will not act rebelliously.

Qur’an is the only religious book on the face of the earth that says ‘marry only one’:

“However, if you fear that (in your marital obligations) you will not be able to observe justice among them, then content yourselves with only one”

There is no other religious book that instructs men to have only one wife. In none of the religious scriptures like the Vedas, the Ramayan, the Mahabharat, the Geeta or the Bible does one find a restriction on the number of wives. According to these scriptures one can marry as many as one wishes. It was only later, that the Hindu priests and the Christian Church restricted the number of wives to one.

Having pointed that out we have to understand why polygamy was “allowed”? Before the Qur’an was revealed, there was no upper limit for polygyny and many men had scores of wives, some even hundreds. Islam put an upper limit of four wives. It wasn’t like men married one woman and Qur’an said marry more. It was all the way around. Also, Islam gives a man permission to marry two, three or four women, only on the condition that he deals with them justly. In the same chapter i.e. Surah Nisa verse 129 says: ‘It is very difficult to be just and fair between women’. [Al-Qur’an (4:129)] Do you think men could be “JUST”? I cant…

Therefore polygyny is not a rule but an exception. Many people are under the misconception that it is compulsory for a Muslim man to marry more than one wife.

Broadly, Islam has five categories of Do’s and Dont’s.

(i) ‘Farz’ i.e compulsory

(ii) ‘Mustahab’ i.e recommended or encouraged

(iii) ‘Mubah’ i.e permissible

(iv) ‘Makruh’ i.e ‘not recommended’ or discouraged

(v) ‘Haram’ i.e prohibited or forbidden

Polygyny falls in the middle category of things that are permissible. It cannot be said that a Muslim who has two, three or four wives is a better Muslim as compared to a Muslim who has only one wife.

Lets see an example of Ali abi Thalib (ra) and the daughter of Prophet (saw) Fatima (ra).

Narrated ‘Ali bin Al-Husain:

That when they reached Medina after returning from Yazid bin Mu’awaiya after the martyrdom of Husain bin ‘Ali (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon him), Al-Miswar bin Makhrama met him and said to him, “Do you have any need you may order me to satisfy?” ‘Ali said, “No.” Al-Miswar said, Will you give me the sword of Allah’s Apostle for I am afraid that people may take it from you by force? By Allah, if you give it to me, they will never be able to take it till I die.” When ‘Ali bin Abu Talib demanded the hand of the daughter of Abi Jahl to be his wife besides Fatima, I heard Allah’s Apostle on his pulpit delivering a sermon in this connection before the people, and I had then attained my age of puberty. Allah’s Apostle said, “Fatima is from me, and I am afraid she will be subjected to trials in her religion (because of jealousy).” The Prophet then mentioned one of his son-in-laws who was from the tribe of ‘Abu Shams, and he praised him as a good son-in-law, saying, “Whatever he said was the truth, and he promised me and fulfilled his promise. I do not make a legal thing illegal, nor do I make an illegal thing legal, but by Allah, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle and the daughter of the enemy of Allah, (i.e. Abu Jahl) can never get together (as the wives of one man) (See Hadith No. 76, Vo. 5). (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 53, Number 342)

Also,

It is related that al-Miswar ibn Makhrama said, “‘Ali ibn Abi Talib proposed to the daughter of Abu Jahl and Fatima heard about it. She went to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said, ‘Your people claim that you do not become angry on account of your daughters. This ‘Ali is going to marry the daughter of Abu Jahl.’ The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, got up and I heard him say after the tashahhud, “Following on from that, I married my daughter to Abu’l-‘As ibn ar-Rabi’ and he spoke to me and told the truth to me. Fatima is part of me and I dislike that she be vexed. By Allah, the daughter of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and the daughter of the enemy of Allah will not be joined together by the same man.’ So ‘Ali abandoned his proposal.”

Also,

It is related that Miswar said, “I heard the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and he mentioned an in-law of his from the Banu ‘Abdu Shams and praised him as an in-law, and said, ‘He spoke to me and told the truth. He promised him and kept his promise.’” (Aisha Bewley, The Sahih Collection of al-Bukhari, Chapter 66. Book of the Virtues of the Companions; source)

It seems pretty obvious that the reason why Prophet (saw) forbade Ali (ra) from an acceptable and lawful marriage is because of his desire to protect his daughter Fatima (ra) since he knew she would be jealous and couldn’t handle another woman sharing the affections of her husband. This fact is brought out by the following narratives:

Al-Miswar bin Makhramah narrated: “While he was on the Minbar, I heard the Prophet saying, ‘Indeed Banu Hisham bin Al-Mughirah asked me if they could marry their daughter to ‘Ali bin Abi Talib. But I do not allow it, I do not allow it, I do not allow it – unless ‘Ali bin Abi Talib wishes to divorce my daughter and marry their daughter, because she is a part of me. I am displeased by what displeases her, and I am harmed by what harms her.’” (Sahih)

[Abu ‘Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Sahih. [And ‘Amr bin Dinar reported it similar to this from Ibn Abi Mulaikah from Al-Miswar bin Makhramah like this.]


At the time when ‘Ali wanted to marry the daughter of Abu Jahl and talked to her uncle Harith bin Hisham, all the sisters and the mother of Fatima had died, and she had no lady companion in this adversity. Obviously such situation is very troublesome for a father, so the Prophet dissuaded ‘Ali strongly, and asked him to drop the idea of marrying. (English Translation of Jami‘ At-Tirmidhi, Compiled by Imam Hafiz ‘Eisa Mohammad Ibn ‘Eisa At-Tirmidhi, From Hadith no. 3291 to 3956, translated by Abu Khaliyl (USA))

Did Prophet (saw) allowed Ali (ra) marry a second wife while Ali (ra) was married to His (saw) daughter? I think this will give you a pretty good idea about the topic.

Moreover, whomever make you feel as Islam is a men oriented religion actually does not know Islam well. Islam gives women as much importance as men maybe even more. Check out these hadiths:

The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said in a famous narration:

‘Paradise lies at the feet of your mother’ [Musnad Ahmad, Sunan An-Nasâ’i, Sunan Ibn Mâjah]

It was narrated by Abu Hurairah ® that a man came to the Prophet (PBUH) and asked him, “Who amongst his near one had the greatest right over him?” The Prophet replied, “Your mother”. The man then asked, “Who after that?” to which the Prophet replied again, “Your mother”. Asked who is next, the Prophet again replied, “Your mother”. When the man asked who after that, the Prophet said, “Your father”.

Tirmizî: Kitab’ül Birri ve’s-Sılâ, Bab : Ma câ’e fi Birri’l-Valideyni.

Now do you think women are not important in Islam? Do you think men are more important then women in Islam? Why did Prophet (saw) repeated 3 times YOUR MOTHER and after YOUR FATHER?

Now, why do women “cover from head to toe while praying?”

Lets make this clear: It is not ONLY women who have rules for Tasattur. Men do as well but for some reason nobody talks about the covering of men and as usual women are on the spot light. Lets correct that idea first. BOTH men and women have rules for covering.

The reason for tasattur is to protect women and men. Look at the modern society. Do you feel comfortable with the idea of women being a sex object? Do you feel comfortable with the idea in today’s world men formed a system that focuses on the “body” of women? I don’t.

This has been a long post and I apologize for that. Please be in touch if you have any other concerns. Sister satan will not let you be. Allah (swt) blessed you with imaan and that is the biggest gift one could receive. Satan will try to take that away from you. Please focus on more important issues of Islam. Study the Qur’an and Sunnah. Islam is an ocean and you are focusing on a drop

We will pray Salat ul Hajaat for you tonight insha’Allah

May Allah forgive any of my shortcomings

Ma’Salaam
