muslim men

anonymous asked:

Sana said muslims can only marry muslims because its written in the quran. Is that true?

Yes and no

It is allowed for men to marry to someone who isn’t muslim (if she is Christian or Jewish, but it is not allowed for him to marry a non-Muslim woman who follows any religion other than these two) while it is not allowed for women to marry a man who isn’t muslim

The justification for this rule was two-fold: 1) Technically, children are given the religion of their father, and so legally speaking, the offspring of a union between a Muslim male and a non-muslim would still be Muslim; 2)It was argued that Muslim men are Islamically prohibited from forcing their wives to become Muslim.  Religious coercion is prohibited in Islam.  However, in Christianity and Judaism a similar prohibition against coercion does not exist.  According to their own religious law, Muslim jurists argued, Christian men may force their Muslim wives to convert to their (the husbands’) religion.  Put differently, it was argued, Islam recognizes Christianity and Judaism as valid religions, but Judaism and Christianity do not recognize the validity of Islam as a religion.  Since it was assumed that the man is the stronger party in a marriage, it was argued that Christian and Jewish men will be able to compel their Muslim wives to abandon Islam. (If a Muslim man would do the same, he would be violating Islamic law and committing a grave sin).

I hope that answered your question

the first conversation between a man & a woman

Ibn Abbas (رضي الله عنه) and a group of companions of the Prophet ﷺ narrated that when Iblis was sent out of Paradise and Adam was accommodated therein, Adam (alayhi salam) was alone in Paradise. He slept for some time and when he woke up, he saw a woman whom Allah had created from his ribs.

So he asked her, “Who are you?”

She replied, ”A woman

He asked: ”Why have you been created?“

She said: ”So that you could find comfort in me.“

muslim men honestly think they’re the smartest being on the planet and us little women need them to explain and interpret the “proper” meaning of hadiths that have been used against us our whole lives, like we’ve never considered their meanings or interpretations before them! because they are just soooo smart and amazing, maaashallah! they know the true meaning of OUR religion, not us! 

listen up, you rivers of self entitled sewage water, we know our religion. we know these hadiths you use against us, because we’ve heard them all our lives. we have already looked them up, read their interpretations, found new meanings in them, and fit them into the version of Islam we know and love: the one that puts all humans on equal footing before Allah swt and promises women fair treatment and justice. it says a lot about you that you’ve never looked into these hadiths, never thought their common interpretations seem unfair and out of line with Islam’s core values. it says a lot about you that you didn’t pause at hadiths that put women beneath you, that leave you entitled and in power. 

You know, back in the day like the time of the prophet the muslim men had so much manners. Like men today talk so badly about muslim women, and its to the point where yall are pushing them to non muslims. You are here to peotect us, not damn us to hell. That is not your job. Stay in your lane homie, and stand up for your sister in Islam. (not all men)
