make it halal


وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُمْ مَوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.
Surah 30. Ar-Rum, Ayah 21

Hey all! This is my recipe for vegan chickpea and avocado “salad”. It’s pretty easy if you have a small food processor or blender, but can definitely be done by hand. This batch makes enough for a few days of filling sandwiches. I like it stuffed in a pita with baby spinach and other veggies (whatever I have on hand). Here it’s pictured with Chipotle veganaise on a Multigrain pita. Here we go!

Supplies:
Knife for cutting avocado
Cutting board or plate
Food processor, blender, or fork for mashing (you can get a small food processor for $20ish on amazon)
Tupperware

Ingredients:
2 cans chickpeas
2 ripe avocados
2 carrots
Garlic powder
Lemon juice
Paprika (smoked is the BOMB, but regular is fine!)
Salt and Pepper

Steps:
The first step is totally optional, but it makes a smoother salad: peel your chickpeas. This can take a while, but just pinch the peas to seperate the skins. This goes faster with help, but I think is worth it (I’ve made it both ways). Again, an optional step!
Step two: remove pit and peel from your avocados. Place in food processor (or tupperware, if you’re mashing by hand). Add chickpeas.
Step three: Grind it up! I like to grind the chickpeas enough that they aren’t whole, but have some chunky pieces for a meaty texture. My food processor is small, so I do this in batches. Place avocado/chickpea mixture in your tupperware.
Step four: peel, then shred your carrots directly into your tupperware. I save the peels and stubs and freeze them to make veggie stock. 😊
Step five: season! I use a splash of lemon juice and eye the rest. I like mine with a lot of flavor, so I tend to use a heavy hand on the seasoning. Mix it up, store in the fridge. I rotate this sandwich with pb&j. It would be good on all sorts of breads.

Good luck!

Egg Drop

I make egg drop a lot when I’m feeling lazy or sick or just not up for a lot of cooking. It’s hearty and filling, and no-carb, which is really nice as a diabetic.

Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Water
  • Bouillon cubes, or Better Than Bouillon powder

Optional

  • Chicken stock (for richer soup, instead of bouillon and water)
  • Green onions (chopped)
  • Mushrooms (chopped)
  • Ginger (shredded fresh or powdered, for the broth)
  • Sesame seeds
  • Corn starch (to add thickness to soup of silkiness to eggs)

Cookwares

  • Saucepan (this recipe scales but I use a medium saucepan and it makes two big portions)
  • Egg-whisking receptacle (i use glass measuring cups or mugs, but a bowl can work too)
  • Whisking utensil (a whisk or a fork)

Note:

I scale this recipe by cups of water:bouillon cubes:eggs. So if i use one cup of water i use one cube of bouillon and one egg. It keeps the ratio well balanced and the soup from being too weak, but obviously personal tastes differ. My normal portion is 2:2:2.

Instructions

  1. If using stock, pour a reasonable amount into the pan – if using water and bouillon, pour in just water. As mentioned above, i usually pour in two cups but it’s not precise. Set to boil on high heat.
  2. When the water is beginning to simmer (small bubbles on the bottom of the pan, or a rumbling sound), add in bouillon cubes or powder. As mentioned above, I normally use two but your sodium needs maybe differ.
  3. While this is happening, whisk your eggs until well combined. If you want silkier eggs, like those you find in a restaurant, add roughly a ¼ teaspoon per egg of cornstarch. Beat well.
  4. If adding green onions, add green onions to boiling water.
  5. When water is at a rolling boil, take your egg mixture and your whisking instrument and position yourself over the pot.
  6. Very gently, pick up a little bit of the egg mixture on your fork or whisk and drop it over the boiling water. When it hits the boiling water, it will cook into little filaments of egg. Keeping your fork- or whisk-fuls small will help the texture of the soup stay neat. If you get impatient (i do) pouring in larger quantities also work, but you get a chunkier soup and less of that soft, silky texture.
  7. You’re done!
  8. Add toppings of choice.

Not even going to sugarcoat, you’re a clown if you’re out here trying to ‘reform’ the deen. Just admit to being a conformist as an individual and don’t push your idealogy on Islam. There are many muslims who wish to follow it in the correct manner, and some of you are out here claiming to follow the same religion but excluding them because they’re leaning more towards the 'extreme’ side, based on your newfound 'enlightenment’. Here’s one that’s quite prevalent - so many muslims out here are actually critical of niqabis but are the first to call for 'women’s liberation’ and feminism by western standards. Why are you so ashamed to advocate for modesty, but so quick to jump for stripping and the 'free the nipple’ movement? The thing is, as much as this annoys me, it wouldn’t bother me so much if you chose to deny parts of the deen as an individual, but to pick and choose from it, then force your obviously imitated opinions on muslims who choose to follow and accept Islam as it should be, is plain ignorant. You’re literally taking the deen from people who actually accept it and turn it against them based off your own whims and desires, and for the acceptance of a society that never really accepted muslims to begin with. Taking from the Quran/ahadeeth to make sure non muslims understand that you agree certain parts are flawed, just to fit in? That is your own insecurity. I can’t make you believe in something you simply don’t want to believe in. BUT, going on to call the muslims who live it 'backwards’ and 'extreme’ is just sad.. The fact is, if you want to continue on a path of haraam, do so without making it halal.

Peanut Butter Pasta

So, this is a really simple but tasty meal that my family has made since I was a kid. The sesame oil and soy sauce might require a little up front investment, but will last a long time. And a bonus? None of the ingredients need to be refrigerated, if that’s an issue for you.

You’ll need:

*Pasta (some kind of shape works best, the sauce is sticky)*Peanut butter (the kind without sugar is better, but conventional stuff should be ok)
*Tamari soy sauce (i use reduced sodium, still plenty salty)
*Toasted sesame oil
*Garlic, crushed (i use fresh, but jarred garlic should work fine)
*Some hot water (from an electric kettle or your pasta water)
*Sriracha or chili garlic sauce (optional)

Cook the pasta according to the package.

While the pasta is cooking/water is boiling mix up the sauce; I pretty much do this to taste, but here are my approximate amounts for a pound of pasta.
1 -1 ½ cup peanut butter1/2 - 1 teaspoons sesame oil
2-3 teaspoons soy sauce
3-4 medium to large cloves garlic

Mix it all up and adjust amounts to taste; remember you’re going to add a lot of water to this, so it should be strong. 

Once you’ve drained the pasta (remember to save water for the sauce before you drain, if you were going to!), return the pasta to the pot. Mix in enough hot water to the sauce to make it pour-able, I usually start with about half a cup, but you’ll probably need more. Mix it up with the pasta in the pot. You can still add more water if it seems too sticky. (Note: This stuff thickens up when left to sit, don’t add the water ahead of time.)

This is great served with steamed veggies, and my family also usually eats it with some chicken. Remember the sriracha? Put that on it for spicy.

We’ll all get to hang out, it’ll be fun, hopefully we can make some (halal) smores and it’ll be like a long summer camp.

So, I’m excited, got lots of activities planned.

Types of KUFR

(Every Muslim must know these to help from falling into these destructive beliefs)

1. Kufr ul-‘Inad: Disbelief out of stubborness. This applies to someone who knows the truth and admits to knowing the truth and admits to knowing it with his tongue, but refuses to accept it and refrains from making a declaration. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Throw into Hell every stubborn disbeliever.” [Surah Qaf (50), ayah 24]

2. Kufr ul-Inkar: Disbelief out of denial. This applies to someone who denies with both heart and tongue. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “They recognize the favors of Allah, yet they deny them. Most of them are disbelievers.” [Surah Nahl (16), ayah 83]

3. Kufr ul-Kibr: Disbelief out of arrogance and pride. The disbelief by the devils (e.g. Iblis) is an example of this type of kufr.

4. Kufr ul-Juhud: Disbelief out of rejection.This applies to someone who aknowledges the truth in his heart, but rejects it with his tongue. This types of kufr is applicable to those who calls themselves Muslims but who reject any necessary and accepted norms of Islam such as salat and zakat. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “They denied them (i.e. the signs) even though their hearts believed in them, out of spite and arrogance.” [Surah Naml (27), ayah 14]

5. Kufr ul-Nifaq: Disbelief out of hypocrisy.This applies to someone who pretends to be a believer but conceals his disbelief. Such a person is called a munafiq or hypocrite. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Verily the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of Hell. You will find no one to help them.” [SurahAn-Nisa (4), ayah 145]

6. Kufr ul-Istihal: Disbelief out of trying to make haram into halal. This applies to someone who accepts as lawful (halal) that which Allah has made unlawful (haram) like alcohol or adultery. Only Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, has the prerogative to make things halal and haram and those who seek to interfere with His right are like rivals to Him and therefore fall outside the boundries of faith.

7. Kufr ul-Kurh: Disbelief out of detesting any of Allah’s Commands. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Perdition (destruction) has been consigned to those who disbelieve and He will render their actions void. This is because they are averse to that which Allah has revealed so He has made their actions fruitless.” [Surah Muhammad (47), ayah 8-9]

8. Kufr ul-Istihzaha: Disbelief due to mockery and derision. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Say: Was it at Allah, His signs and His apostles that you were mocking? Make no excuses. You have disbelieved after you have believed.” [Surah Taubah (9), ayah 65-66]

9. Kufr ul-I'radh: Disbelief due to avoidance. This applies to those who turn away and avoid the truth. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “And who is more unjust than he who is reminded of his Lord’s Signs but then turns away from them. Then he forgets what he has sent forward (for the Day of Judgment).” [Surah Kahf (18), ayah 57]

10. Kufr ul-Istibdal: Disbelief because of trying to substitute Allah’s Laws. This could take the form of (a) rejection of Allah’s Law (shari'ah) without denying it, (b) denial of Allah’s law and therefore rejecting it, or © substituting Allah’s laws with man-made laws. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Or have they partners with Allah who have instituted for them a religion which Allah has not allowed.” [Surah Shura (42), ayah 8] Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely (that) is lawful and this is forbidden so as to invent a lie against Allah. Verily, those who invent a lie against Allah will never prosper.” [Surah Nahl (16), ayah 116

Nikahin atau tinggalin??

Tulisan ini ditulis berdasarkan request dari @warnalangitku  dia nyuruh saya untuk nulis tentang akun-akun yang (katanya) dakwah yang mayoritas contentnya cuman bikin galau tapi dibalut agama gitu. oke, setelah 2 hari semedi dan bertapa bersama dewi kuanin akhirnya tulisan ini berhasil dibuat. Special for You : @warnalangitku

Sekarang banyak banget bertebaran akun-akun yg (katanya) dakwah. Saking banyaknya saya bener-bener dibikin geleng-geleng kepala. Sebenernya akun-nya sih gapapa, ga masalah. Yg masalah itu contentnya yg mayoritas berbondong-bondong mengajak anak-anak muda (khususnya cewek) buat cepet menikah. Kalau boleh saya ibaratkan, akun-akun yg (katanya) dakwah ini seperti “cowok yg nanyain ceweknya udah makan belum? Iya, cuman nanyain tapi gak pernah ngajakin makan.” Mereka juga seperti itu, menggembor-gemborkan nikah muda, cepetan nikah, tapi cuman sekedar nyuruh doang dan ga ngasih solusi apapun entah misalnya bagaimana mendapat pasangan yg baik, bagaimana menjadi pribadi yg baik sehingga kelaknya jodohnya pun baik-baik, dan semacamnya.

Apakah ajakan untuk menikah itu salah?

Ya engga salah, sebenernya. Tapi, yg salah cara mereka menyampaikannya itu loh, dibuat sedramatis mungkin sehingga menimbulkan kesan untuk menyegerakan dan buru-buru. Dan endingnya cuman bikin anak-anak muda khususnya cewek jadi galau. Galau menunggu sang pangeran dgn wajah oriental berkumis tipis lengkap dengan baju zirahnya dan tak lupa menunggangi kuda supaya baiknya jalannya… hey tuk kitakkitukkitakitukkitakkituk tukkitakkitukkitakkituk suara sepatu kuda.

Lantas apa bedanya kalau gitu akun yg (katanya) dakwah ini dgn akun2 a-be-ge labil yang menebar paham Ke-Galau-an?? Sama aja kok, semuanya cuman bikin galau calon-calon ibu yg bakal melahirkan pemimpin-pemimpin negeri ini dimasa depan. Kalo pun ada yg beda itu hanya dari bungkusnya, yg satu pake agama yg satu engga. Udah itu aja.

Dikira nikah itu gampang apa? Kalo nikahnya aja si gampang. Pergi ke KUA, bawa orang tua, wali, terus tinggal ijab dan qobul kelar deh urusan. Tapi masalah yang sebenernya ya setelah itu, tepatnya ketika menjalani kehidupan bahtera rumah tangga. Dan masalah yg dihadapipun bukan lagi disebabkan oleh hal-hal remeh kayak telpon ga diangkat, sms ga dibales, di bbm cuman di R, bukan itu. Melainkan masalah yg lebih kompleks dan fundamental seperti soal ekonomi dan emosi kedua belah pihak yang masih mirip bocah.


Sebab itu nikah muda menjadi salah satu penyebab meningkatnya angka perceraian. Why? karna nikah muda cenderung dilakukan oleh pasangan yang sebetulnya belum siap dari sisi kematangan mental dan masih labil. Sehingga ketika dihadapkan oleh masalah seperti permasalahan finan-SIAL dan masalah rumah tangga lainnya nggak kuat. Dan perpisahan atau perceraian menjadi satu-satunya jalan bagi pasangan muda tersebut.

Terlebih tren anak muda sekarang kurang memiliki rasa tanggung jawab dan cuman modal nekat doang ngelamar dan menerima lamaran orang. Ini pernikahan, bukan acara terjun dari pesawat buat sky diving. Hanya bermodalkan nekat dan cuman disiap-siapin ajah ga cukup buat beli susu, sabun, odol, token listrik, dan indomie goreng. Kecuali kamu cukup berani untuk menodong kasir minimarket buat memenuhi kebutuhan rumah tanggamu.

Iya, saya tau bagaimana pentingnya menikah. Tapi menikah ga bisa diburu-burukan, emangnya bandung bondowoso, yg hanya butuh satu malem untuk membuat seribu candi. Pernikahan tetep butuh persiapan. Persiapan pesta nya, adat yg bakal dipake, foto prewed, katringnya, sewa gedungnya, dan yg paling penting persiapan uangnya. Inget, budaya pamer pas nikah itu mahal. Tapi jika kamu memang sudah siap dengan segala konsekuesi dan persiapannya, oke it’s your choice.

Tapi kan pacaran itu dosa, apalagi kalo sampai pegang-pegangan. Jadi mending nikah muda sekalian biar bisa pegang-pegangan, pelukan, ciuman, dan sex ga dosa dan 100% halal”. Saya ga tau darimana sesat pikiran semacam itu berawal. Tapi bagi saya pribadi, menikah bukan cuman sekedar biar bisa pegang-pegangan, ciuman, dan sex dengan dalih agama. Married is so much more than making sex halal.

Urusan nikah itu ga cuma urusan selangkangan. Nikah itu tanggung jawab ngebahagiain lahir bathin pasangan kamu sampe mati. Mentang-mentang agama menganjurkan, bukan berarti seenaknya memudahkan.

Toh, jika kamu percaya dengan takdir Allah, tulang rusuk yang hilang juga akan dipertemukan dengan pemiliknya at the right time, kan?

Jadi menurutmu pacaran adalah opsi yg paling baik gitu kak?

Engga. Saya tidak membenarkan pacaran namun saya juga tidak menyalahkannya. Jujur, saya juga termasuk dalam golongan manusia yg udah tau kalo pacaran itu tidak dianjurkan oleh agama yg isinya cuman gitu-gitu aja sejak jamannya indosiar masi nayangin anime dan kartun tiap hari minggu, tapi saya tetep aja pacaran juga.

Tapi kan kalo pacaran sekarang pada pegang-pegangan, pelukan bahkan sampe ciuman, itukan semua dosa kak?

Iya si memang kalo melihat model pacaran anak muda jaman sekarang emang miris dan bikin saya ngelus dada. SD sayang-sayangan, SMP mulai pegang-pegangan, SMA nya udah berani ML. Astaghfirullah. Tapi Meskipun seperti itu kita ga bisa berbuat apa-apa, kita tidak bisa merubah kebiasaan pacaran yg pegangan tangan, pelukan, ciuman, bahkan tidak sedikit sampai ML dikarenakan negara kita ini sudah terlalu banyak terkontaminasi budaya-budaya asing tak terkecuali budaya pacarannya. Dinegara asing mungkin budaya pacaran yg pelukan dan ciuman mungkin merupakan hal yg wajar, tetapi dinegara kita pelukan dan ciuman adalah hal yang tabu, yg tak sesuai dengan nilai-nilai luhur bangsa dan pancasila. Namun bukan berati mereka juga bisa seenaknya menyerukan untuk menikah muda. Menurut saya ‘nikah muda’ bukanlah solusi agar anak-anak muda dinegara kita ini tidak terjerembab dalam jurang kenistaan tersebut. Kalaupun memang niatnya agar anak muda tidak pacaran, kenapa tidak mengajak agar supaya menuntut ilmu setinggi mungkin dan membahagiakan orang tua? Bagi saya itu lebih logis dibanding mendoktrin “cepet halalin aku, nikahin atau tinggalin”. Kalau niatnya untuk dalih ibadah, toh menuntut ilmu juga merupakan ibadah? Bahkan Allah juga menyuruh agar kita menuntut ilmu setinggi mungkin. Jadi berhentilah menjejali anak-anak muda penerus bangsa ini dengan paham “ayo nikah muda daripada pacaran jadi dosa, cepat halalin biar bisa enak-enakan, dsb”. Negara kita butuh generasi-generasi muda yg pintar, cerdas, berpedidikan mumpuni, berwawasan luas, dan berkepribadian yg baik bukan generasi muda yg menye-menye karna galau nungguin sang pujaan hati yg tak kunjung datang.

Jadi intinya, mau nikah umur berapa aja itu terserah kepada individunya masing-masing. Tapi, saya hanya minta untuk akun-akun yg (katanya) dakwah itu mbok ya jangan menggencarkan nikah muda dengan cara yang maaf “salah”. Dibalutkan agama dan membuat anak muda khusunya cewek jadi galau menunggu pangeran berkuda putih datang menghalalkan. Alangkah baiknya jika ajakan nikah mudanya diganti dengan content yg isinya tentang ajakan untuk menuntut ilmu (dunia dan akhirat) setinggi mungkin, untuk menjadi orang yg bermanfaat bagi orang lain. Pasti kan dampak yg ditimbulkan nanti jadi lebih baik dibandingkan hanya sekedar menyerukan, “ayo nikah!, halalkan atau tinggalkan aku, ...” dengan dibungkus agama.

Lantas apa saranmu kak?

Manfaatkan baik-baik usia mudamu untuk belajar dan menuntut ilmu setinggi mungkin. Otak remajamu kasian kalau hanya dijejali pemikiran “kutunggu pangeranku lengkap dengan orang tua beserta keluarga besar", “Ayo cepet nikah”, “tinggalkan atau nikahi aku sekarang juga”. Di Pakistan  ada seorang anak perempuan bernama Malala Yousafzai diterjang 3 peluru karena dia memperjuangkan hak-hak wanita untuk mengenyam pendidikan. Sedangkan kamu yg hidup di negara Indonesia Merdeka yg notabene akses kamu buat mendapatkan pendidikan sangat mudah dan sangat besar malah galau karna nunggu sang pangeran yg tak kunjung tiba dan minta buru-buru dihalalkan. Logis kah?? Ga malu sama mbak Malala??

Teruntuk yg sudah nikah diusia muda, saya ucapkap selamat. Selamat karna telah menempuh hidup baru, dimana didalamnya ga cuma soal kamu seorang saja melainkan ada pasangamu juga didalamnya. Saya berdoa semoga kalian dihindarkan dari masalah yg dapat memicu perpisahan dan selalu diberkahi kehidupan pernikahannya.

Buat yg sekarang masih pacaran, ya udah lanjutin ajah. Selama pacaran kalian masih dalam batas normal dan wajar. Misal sebagai pemberi motivasi, moodboster, saling mendukung, it’s ok. Tapi jangan kelamaan yah pacarannya. Saya pernah denger ada yg pacaran sampai 5 tahun. Whatt…the,,, Hell-oo. Pacaran kok sampai 5 tahun, itu pacaran atau kredit mobil?. Buat lelakinya kalo memang sudah dirasa siap (secara mental) dan mampu (secara materi) langsung halalin. Jangan kelamaan ngajakin anak orang untuk hubungan yg ga jelas semacam pacaran, kasian. Dan untuk wanitanya, Berikan lelakimu ruang, waktu, dan dukungan untuk mempersiapkan segalanya. Jangan menekan dan memaksa lelakimu untuk segera menghalalkanmu. Toh jika memang sudah serasa pas dan tepat dia akan datang kerumahmu membawa serta keluarga besar.

Dan buat yg saat ini lagi jomblo atau bahkan sama sekali belum pernah pacaran, pertahanin! Ga usah pacaran, dan ga usah nyobain buat pacaran. Soalnya pacaran mah cuma gitu-gitu aja. Pacaran cuma bikin kamu merasa bahwa dunia ini cuma milik kamu dan pacarmu saja dan melupakan bahwa masih ada milyaran orang yg hidup dibumi ini, pacaran cuma bikin kamu merasakan kalau upil itu rasanya manis ketika dijilat, pacaran cuma bikin kamu rela puasa senin sampai jumat biar sabtunya bisa ngajakin kebioskop, pacaran cuma bikin kamu rela berjam-jam mengurung dikamar untuk merias wajah agar terlihat cantik dihadapannya. Belum lagi ditambah dengan hal-hal prekk lainnya macam marah, berantem, ngambek, kangen, orang ketiga. Hoaammm pucingpalaneymar. Jadi untuk sekarang masa mudanya yg berharga dipakai saja untuk belajar sebanyak mungkin, mengenyam pendidikan setinggi mungkin, dan membangun karir bagus. Dan ketika waktunya sudah tepat jodohmu akan datang dengan cara elegan. Tak usah takut kalau misalnya kamu nanti menjadi seorang manajer perusahaan terus jodohmu seorang penjual nasi goreng keliling. Itu ga bakal mungkin. Karena cerita-cerita seperti, “ceweknya manajer dan cowoknya security atau penjual nasi goreng” cuma ada di ftv-ftv yg tayang tiap hari pukul 10 pagi di sctv. Yang pasti wanita yang baik, cerdas juga untuk lelaki baik, cerdas juga kan. Pun juga sebaliknya.

Maybe, beberapa dari kalian tidak setuju dengan pendapat saya ini, dan mungkin beberapa berpikir, “cetek banget pikiran lo, idealis banget sih, liberal banget lo jadi orang!”, atau mungkin bahkan ada yg berpikir kalau saya seorang Agen CIA yg menyamar menjadi anak muda berusia 20 tahun yg sok-sokan peduli dengan generasi muda penerus bangsa. Itu hak kalian, lagian dinegara tercinta ini kita bebas berpendapatkan? Saking bebasnya bahkan kita bisa ngejudge presiden di sosial media. Silahkan nilai saya se-nangkep otak kalian, kita punya sudut pandang masing-masing. Saya hargai pendapat kalian bila berbeda dari saya. The last, I hope you guys do the same thing too.

I'm not gonna lie, all these horrible things I see Muslim people doing makes me feel ashamed to be a Muslim. I try to follow my religion whilst keeping outdated ideas of Islam like antisemitism far away but I just keep thinking "I am part of an awful faith". Do you have anything that can make me feel better? -Halal Anon

If you’re a good person – and I’m sure that you are – then you’re completely separate and innocent when it comes to the awful people in your faith. It’s going to take time, but there will be a reformation of Islam, and the awful ideas and extremists will be ignored and brushed aside just like they have been in Judaism and Christianity. 

You can very easily say, “Look, those guys over there are assholes, but that’s not how I follow my faith. That’s not how I interpret my faith.” And since you’re already condemning them and criticising them, then that’s absolutely a start to the reformation process. There are other Muslims and Imams who are great people.

Just because you happen to share a faith with assholes doesn’t make you an asshole. I happily sit and condemn the extremism and awful things inside the Haredi community, and I’m ashamed of them, but that doesn’t make me ashamed to be Jewish, you know?

anonymous asked:

I see so many Muslims every where esp on tumblr posting about how homosexuality is great and Allah loves u no matter what. I'm fully aware that it's haram but sometimes some things that people say make me begin to doubt. A Muslim thinks another Muslim who is against homo is trash. Legit everyone supports it now. How do u react to these Muslims saying it is OK?

You can never make halal what Allah has made haram. You can’t, and just because the people around you make the haram okay, doesn’t mean it is.
A sin is a sin, and yes we all sin and we all are tested in different ways but just because we sin ourselves doesn’t me we encourage those around us to sin. I believe it’s haram, and I’m not going to tell you it’s halal but I’m not going to treat anyone any differently.
I personally don’t care how people view me and my opinions. You get called homophobic for believing it’s haram but it is what it is.

[..] I am an Ezidi girl. My real age is 18 years old. […] I was 15 years old when Daesh attacked my village. They killed all the men of my village including my brother, my father, other relatives, young and old. They then took us to another place and they separated us between older and younger women. They killed the older women, they divided the younger girls among themselves and we were then traded on the slave trade market. I, myself, was sold 4 times by Daesh, and every single time I was sold, I tried to escape but was captured again and tortured and beat. One of them who was responsible for making explosive devices forced me to help him in the construction of bombs. The last Daesh who bought me was an Iraqi Doctor called Dr. Islam. He was the director of the Hawija hospital. He tortured me and the other Ezidis immensely. He would even rape girls who were only 9 or 10 years old.

My childhood friend Katrin, I and Alma, a 9 year old girl were held and raped by him. The three of us  could escape from him but before we managed to arrive to safety, Katrin walked on a landmine that exploded under us. Katrin‘s screams were the very last thing that reached my ears.  When I woke up, I realized I had lost the sight of both my eyes. My body was burning and I did not believe that I would ever be able to open my eyes again.

I was then helped to travel from Iraq to Germany where I was medically treated. I am now able to see through one eye. I cannot think of myself alone. I believe God helped me so that I can be a voice for the victims. […] I too have vowed to become a voice for the voiceless. The Ezidis have been victims of extremism, violence and terrorism. They have lost their lives. But I firmly ask you and urge you to promise us that never again we will allow these kind of things to happen. That you will listen to the helpless so that justice will be done and so that the criminals can be held accountable. It‘s been two and a half years now since the tragedy that affected the Ezidi people. There are still more than 3500 of our girls and women and children in the hands of Daesh. They wish for their own death everyday. And Until the bones of our dead remain untouched in the mass graves, they will find no peace. Ezidi people are of no value in Iraq, whether dead or alive.

My village was very beautiful. It has been around Arab villages for hundreds of years. I remember, when our Arab Muslim neighbours visited us, they wouldn‘t eat the meat in our house because they said it was haram for them. We respected their religion so my father would ask our Muslim guests to slaughter the animal themselves to make it halal for them to eat the meat. But when the Islamic State arrived and attacked us, it was those neighbours that we respected, who before everyone else attacked us and killed our men and enslaved our women. As a result of this we have lost the social order in our own society and we have lost trust with these countries because they don’t treat us Ezidis as equal to other citizens.
Today we need Europe so that we can build up our country and experience again peace in our society. These criminals must be brought to justice and held to account. Ezidis and Christians need international protection. Both women and children are in need of programmes to escape that country, and in order to forget what has been done to them. Dear guests, I would like to thank you very much again for this prize. I stand here before you and I would like to accept this prize on behalf of all the women and girls and children who are now still living in camps in Kurdistan under appalling conditions. I very much hope that all of you will help us as well. […]

I have no idea if you are muslim/a and I not want to assume thinks, but if you also want that I would write that too.

With requests like that it might be helpful to have a few more infos, like are you more sheltered or openly raised.

Just to make the reaction a bit more interesting. Otherwise the reaction ends up short.

  • It is Zen after all and sometimes you experienced mean reactions because of your looks and the people thinking really negative about Arabians.
  • You not think that Zen is that shallow but still you are worried.

  • Later when you tell him about your worries you see that Zen not even thought about it at all.
  • He just could care less.
  • Zen is in love with you, even if he might have to work hard to gain your parents approval but that only encourages him more.
  • He also loves your hair it’s just really beautiful and suits you perfectly.


707

  • Finally someone who appreciates his Arabian coding.
  • If you can speak it of course, even if not he still uses you to prove his point.
  • He is worried to mess things up *because he is 707*, so he makes double sure to respect your heritage.
  • What is really sweet if you are into it and kinda awkward if you not really care that much.
  • Still you appreciate that he is trying.
  • Would either chat with you in Arabic or secretly teach it to you , because he is a dork.
  • He totally would be jealous of your hair, I mean his hair is curly but yours is just perfection.


Yoosung

  • He is really nervous to screw up in the first place.
  • Probably has all kinds of fantasies about your family hating him, he like saw that one movie where a Muslim girl gets killed by her family.
  • Even if you are no Muslim/a he still just is kinda paranoid.
  • You have to tell him how it really is.
  • And that your parents gonna love him.
  • That helps, he slowly getting over his fears, and he kinda just forgets how silly he was at first.
  • You are beautiful no matter what to him, so of course he loves your curly hair.


Jumin

  • You think that he might care but he really doesn’t.
  • You mention that you are Arabian, but Jumin knows what prejudice does so he just asks you what he has to know.
  • Like if you are Muslim/a he would make sure that the cook only makes you Halal food for you.
  • He is more curious about you as a person, to him whatever heritage you have is fascinating yes, but it not plays a big part for him.
  • Jumin would also use his Arabian knowledge to impress you.
  • He loves and adored your curly hair.
  • Has 500 ideas how to style and dress you, every day.


Jaehee

  • Her reaction would be like oh interesting I’d like to know more.
  • Probably pictures coffee when you mention Arabia.
  • She would think it might be even more an issue for you then for her to be in a lesbian relationship *if you are a girl*
  • If you are a guy she might be a bit worried about the stereotype of male Arabians controlling their spouses.
  • You can destroy her believes with just being you and showing her your devotion.
  • Jaehee is just really careful over relationships.
  • She is jealous of your hair, low-key wants some curly hair too but nature just not lets her.

anonymous asked:

I am falling for this one guy I speak to, he doesn't always make time for me but I've been very patient with him. I know he doesn't hold any interest in me and isn't going to pursue me, and my feelings for him are strong. But every day it weakens me more than it should because I understand that Allah isn't happy with this. I feel so weak to cut off ties with him.. I guess my question is..how should I go about doing this? What's your advice? Thank you

My dear sister…

You deeply care about a man boy who does not even value you… You may ask how? But i’ll tell you how. If he truly gave you the respect you deserve, he would come through the front door to be with you and not from the back door like a coward. What i mean is, what else can you expect from a person who is not willing and putting the effort to be with you in a manner that is the most pleasing to Allah, nikah… Remember that every single moment you spend with him, you are sinning. Is it worth it? Is he worth it? Nobody is worth compromising your Akhira for.

“And do not come near to adultery, it is a shameful deed and an evil, and opening the road to other evils.” (Surah al Isra)

Notice how Allah tells us not to come near to it.

Sister, do not be blind! The signs of what kind of a person he is, is already there. Do not let shaytan fool you, he is a clear enemy to you! Either make your relationship Halal or leave him for the sake of Allah and Allah will grant you someone better.

May Allah (aza wa jal) grant you a pious spouse, ameen.

Sisters please take heed!
A man who truly loves you will move mountains to make you his wife and make you halal for himself.
He will spoil you rotten with his love, respect, compassion and trust.
He will enter from the front door and get to know you infront of your wali. He will prove his worth and he will prove why he should be considered to be your husband and put your parents at ease.
A man without a backbone and fear of Allah will destroy your deen and keep you as his girlfriend. He will flirt and talk and chat and meet. And he will keep delaying things because he is “not ready” or he will ultimately end it because “his mother is against it”.
Be smart.
Do not waste your time, energy and love on a jerk who doesn’t care about your akhira or his own akhira.
You donot want such a father for your kids.
Allah has already written the name of your spouse and the date of your wedding. It will happen when its meant to happen.
Do not lower your standard or compromise your deen.
