I rmr in elementary school I thought I had a crush on someone bc like that’s what kids do ?? and then I had a moment of panic and felt rly guilty bc I was like “what if having a crush is haram???” so I asked my mom if liking someone was haram and she told me “pyaar hai na? pyaar kabhi b haram nahi hota hai” (basically love is never haram)
and so now when I think about all of the ways that people are made to feel ashamed of who they love, I think of that moment. love? love can never be haram.
If you are in a haram relationship then you should either make it halal or leave them for the sake of Allah.
Not only are you angering and disobeying your Lord but you will also be left with a broken heart. There is wisdom behind as to why it is haram. Allah loves you so much that He wants to protect your heart, mind and soul from harm. He wants what’s best for us so we should too. If it starts in a haram manner then it will end in a disaster. Especially after you and the other person meet up in person. Protect your honour and your dignity by trying not to fall for the traps of shaytan especially this one.
What advice would you give a college aged lesbian who's considering converting to Islam? It all feels so overwhelming and I don't know where to even start, not to mention I don't want to offend anyone.
Get to know Islam, read the Qur'an, learn what Islam is all about.
Remember that everyone has different interpretations and one line in the Qur'an can be perceived in hundreds of different ways by different people so I suggest you read it yourself and try to understand the religion yourself and find out what it means to you. Especially as a lesbian, you’ll hear so many people tell you that being gay is unlawful/haram because of some allegory they supposedly read in the Qur'an when in fact it’s just their homophobic and bigoted interpretations that deducted it in that way.
If you do decide to convert, what you should always keep in mind is you shouldn’t dress in a certain way or celebrate a certain thing because you want to be recognized as a Muslim by other people, you should do it because of your love for God. Islam is not about praying 5 times a day/wearing a hijab/etc, Islam is about your relationship with Allah SWT
All in all, Im wishing you the best of luck, you have my support! ❤️
Here are some pretty great posts filled with resources and tips that could help:
Hey!! So you ever heard of the song 'Take Me to Church' by Hozier???? I love that song so much. Do you think it's haram?? Tbh, you could change 'church' to 'masjid' and 'sunday' to 'friday' & there you have it: a song for queer muslims. At least that's my opinion. The song is not even religious-it just puts the facts out there, how churches and other religious institutes believe being gay is a sin & that it can be cured; and obvs both religious Muslims &Christians struggle w that. What ya think?
Yes, it can definitely be compared to that. It a great song. What do YOU think? Is it haram?
my boyfriend is at a wedding and one of his conservative homophobic religious cousins who happens to be an anime fan started talking to him so he told him there’s nothing more haram than watching naruto
Posterverse fun fact of the day: as a child, Rosario would lay on top of bigger things/people to assert her dominance. Ernest was the main target, so almost every group picture of the kids in their photo albums has chubby-but-totally-unpreterbed little Ernie either being pinned or climbed on by Roz. She still does this from time to time, with people she’s comfortable with. The day she realized that Mal was finally taller than her, Roz had to put him in his place. He didn’t take it gracefully.
You claim to be Muslim yet post haram and rub naked women in faces women need to be covered
You’ve had your say which you’re very entitled to.. but now I’m going to have mine in what you could imagine to be the softest tone of a deep voice..
I can and will post whatever I like.. it’s my blog. Not only that, you have a choice just like everyone on this planet does.. to not click on my URL and look at the so called things YOU call haram. It makes no sense to keep going back to something that causes you upset and anger in any way.
Now I’d like to address you on your view about women.
I don’t think god gave you the right to speak on something you should have a high level of respect for! Would you tell your mother to cover up? And as we’re on the topic, maybe it’s YOU who should lower YOUR gaze and learn to control your actions when you see a bit of flesh on a woman! Didn’t the prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) once walk down a path with a friend and encounter a woman, and on encountering this woman his friend couldn’t keep his eyes off her. To which the prophet then directed his gaze elsewhere and say something of similar content??
Regardless, what I say, do or post for that matter is my business and if Allah is unhappy with something so trivial then that’s his business with me. I’m man enough to take responsibility for my actions.
Ya Allah, we beg You. Please remove us from the haram, guide us away from the haram and give us understanding about what is haram so that we can avoid it. Turn us away from the haram when we try to approach it. Forgive us if we indulge ourselves with the haram things even if we know. Forgive us ya Rabb. Guide us to the right path. Give guidance to those among us who’s in need of your guidance. You are Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim. We seek Your mercy and blessings. Forgive us for our sins.
Borno is a state in the troubled northeast of Nigeria, where the extremist
group Boko Haram began operating. The capital city, Maiduguri,
birthplace of the insurgency, is where this 30-year-old nurse lives and
works as a project manager for a malnutrition project as well as a
Abubakar had been feeling frustrated
that her home region is best known for its ties to Boko Haram. So in
2015, she decided to do something about it. She started taking pictures
of the daily life that she says local and international media neglect as
they focus on bomb blasts, suicide attacks, death and destruction — and
the fallout from Boko Haram’s violence.
She photographs and
profiles random regular folk of all ages, from all walks of life, then
pulls out her notebook to record their views, posting pictures and text
With her camera slung over her shoulder, she heads onto
the streets of Maiduguri and beyond, her colorful long dress trailing
in the dust. She’ll squat and lean perilously close to railings to take a
picture, with a three-foot drop into a trash dump just behind her. I
interviewed Abubakar at work on the hoof, in a bustling roadside
Maiduguri market. The interview has been edited for length and clarity.
It’s really a shame to see children being so afraid of their parents to the point where they’re hesitant to do things which pleases Allah or follow the Sunnah of His Prophet. They’re willing to do the haram but they’re so hesitant to follow what Allah has commanded.
May Allah SWT give me the ability to raise children who will serve this Deen, who will never comprise their Islam for anyone not even for myself. May Allah guide us all. Ameen.
It seems that the famously pious young imam ‘zhang yaxeen’ is actually not so pious after all. Yesterday, on his instagram (more like haram-a-gram) he posted a haramfie of himself which showed him with an cut eyebrow and him biting his lip seductively:
As soon as the selfie dropped the young sisters went wild, mothers began to age, and the masjid elders started sprouting grey hairs. We spoke to one of his friends brother Xiufeek who was told us “ Please dont’ blame him, I was like that when I was his age too…it’s this dunya, it’s killing us”. Brother Xiufeek then speed walked away from us, dropping a polaroid of himself and brother luqman in what appeared to be a compromising (read:haram) position.
Most of the masjid mothers had alot to say on the situtaion. Sister Samira smirked and told us “I knew all along that he was no good, my daughter has seen him thrusting on stage in the middle of one of his concerts and cntiuneously biting his lips and beckoning girls with his fingers”.
Another mother told us “He said one of his nicknames for his wife would be ‘Piggy’, if that’s not haram enough i don’t know what is!”.
However, it seems that not all mothers have lost hope. A distressed looking sister Fatima (who, might i mention has 3 unmarried…uh…unconventioanlly attractive looking daughters over 25) said; “He’s probably just hiding chapped lips or soemthign and who knows about his eyebrows, maybe he accidentally burnt half of it off when cooking,mashallah”. When asked to explain his earring this sister had no comment.
A bomb went off in a market in Potiskum today. People were killed. Some reports say the girl with the bomb may have been less than 10 years old. A few news outlets have described this little girl strapped with explosives in Potiskum as a “suicide bomber”.
She’s not a “suicide bomber”. She’s a victim of Boko Haram too. She was used as an instrument to murder. She was murdered. Her life was stolen.
I thought 2015 would be a great year; I thought that maybe things would start changing. But 2000 people are dead in Nigeria. Leelah Alcorn’s parents and countless others still call her “he”. The Charlie Hebdo shooting happens. TV channels think that LGBT representation, and the depiction of mental illnesses and strong female characters isn’t worth their time.
