  2. An article on the pressures women face in terms of building their careers. The pressures are pretty baseless…given that they often face them even when they do not have to provide for the family. But just from society in terms of why did they get married so early, what about the career; why are they not relocating for work; what about the career; why are they having a baby so early, what about the career; why are they taking a break – what about their career after the break, they wont be able to get a good job if they take a break etc etc.

    • I just came online to say the exact same thing. I think muslim women need to know ISLAMICALLY what does Islam say about women in the workforce. Its becoming a trend that muslims marry early and many of them are leaving their jobs for motherhood, but should there be a balance? Does islam encourage motherhood over work? If so, why? And if not, how can a balance be done?

  8. Asslamoalaikum,

    It is the first time i have visited your website and i find it very informative and dedicated towards Muslim matters. I have to attempt a college assignment on terrorism and how the claims of terrorists that their actions are Islamic can be negated with support from specific relevant Ayaat and Ahadith as well as examples from the life of the prophet. I find a lot of articles on terrorism and separate articles on the importance of jihad, but i am unable to find quality material , with scholarly insight regarding how their claims of their actions being lawful can be negated. Please help regarding this. Also, it would be very nice if other concepts relating to current affairs such as IJTIHAD in a rapidly changing world, the issue of the VEIL and its ban in France and other contemporary issues can be discussed in a scholarly manner. These issues create a confusion in my mind regarding my understanding of Islam and what Muslims are supposed to do in circumstances like these where Islam and issues of the world come face to face. Please do discuss these and other relevant issues.

    Please have an article written on the permissibility of use of DNA testing in rape cases under Shariah. The issue has been under consideration in a number of countries where certain people in Pakistan reject the idea that DNA testing could serve as proof of rape and witnesses are required, while Egypt accepts DNA testing for proof of rape. Kindly have a scholarly article written on the topic with sound arguments as to whether or not it is likely to be acceptable.

  27. I know this might seem like a trivial point to those considering the many and very serious issues faced by the Muslim world, but am I the only one who is irritated by how English speakers persist in referring to Muzlims and Izlam?
    Pronouncing someone’s name correctly is a small but vital sign of respect, and I always thought Westerners were being deliberately off hand; “Oh, is that how you pronounce it? who cares?”
    But we arent helping when we use this spelling ‘Muslim’. To English speakers, that ‘s’ should be pronounced ‘z’.
    The more accurate spelling should be Musslim and Isslam.

  32. Assalamualaykum,

    If one of the authors could do a piece on boy-girl interactions at educational institutions, especially at Universities, I’d appreciate it. The line between proper and improper behavior is getting obscured within Muslim student groups. At my university, it has gotten to a point that even brother’s and sister’s who are religiously committed and looked upon as examples are behaving in a manner that at times, is questionable.

    Therefore, I’m confused as to what are the proper ways of interaction between genders, specifically in a dynamic setting such as a university.

  33. AsSalamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatuh,

    It would be great to have an article where Simple Actions = Immense Rewards could all be found in one place similar to the article The Best of the Best by Abu Eesa Niamatullah.

    Example:
    -taking ghusl, walking to Jummuah prayer, arriving before the khutba starts, sitting close to Imam, listening and no laghu = 1 year of fasting + 1 year of night prayer for every step taken to the masjid + coming back home
    -The place you sit on friday for Jummuah = your place on how close you will be to Allah subhanahu wa ta3ala on Judgement Day or in Jannah to see Him (Don’t know which of the two it is)
    -Not showing anger and not acting on rage = heart filled with hope on Judgement Day in the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa ta3ala and being the first to choose from among the hoor al ayn
    -The one who sends the most salawat on the prophet sallAllahu alyhi wassalam = closest to him on Judgement Day
    -visiting the sick = 70 000 angels asking forgiveness for you
    -reciting surat Al-Kahf on friday = light from one friday to the next
    -Reciting ayat Al-Kursi after each fard salah = Nothing between you and Jannah except death
    -Reciting surat Al-Mulk before sleep = protection from punishments of the grave
    -saying 10x SubhanAllah, 10x AlHamdoulillah and 10x Allahu Akbar after each fard Salat + 33x SubhanAllah, 33x AlHamdoulillah and 34x Allahu Akbar before sleep = guaranteed Jannah
    -Making wudu then saying Ash hadu an la lilaha illAllah wahdahu la sharika lah wa ash hadu anna Mummadan abduhu wa rassuluh = 8 gates of Jannah open up for you
    -saying 100 times subhanAllahi wabihamdihi during the day = erases sins even if like the foam of the sea
    -saying the dhikr of the market = 1 million hassanat
    -saying Allahumma ghifr lil mu’mineem wal mu’minat = you get a hassana for each
    -saying sayyidul istighfar = guaranted Jannah if you die
    -saying 7x Allahumma ajirni minan nar morning and evening after the Salat = protected from hellfire
    -saying subhanAllahi wabihamdihi 3adada khalqihi wa rida nafsihi wa zinata 3archihi wa midada kalimatihi
    -asking truthfully for martyrdom = get martyrdom even if die in your bed
    -making intentions = get reward even if failed to accomplish or if forgot
    -praying isha in congregation at the masjid = as if prayed the whole half of the night
    -being grateful and content in good and bad times = first to enter Jannah
    -reciting surah Al-Ikhlas 10x = a house in Jannah
    -reconciling between 2 people for the sake of Allah = better than Prayer, fasting and charity
    -…
    -7 shaded on Judement Day
    -4 best gifts of dunya and akhirah
    -reward of taking care of an orphan
    -reward of taking care of a widow or a needy person
    -reward of night prayer
    -reward of excellent character
    -reward of 100 martyrs
    -reward of 50 companions
    -reward of knowledge
    -reward of patience
    -reward of walking to masjid
    -…
    -among many more

  35. Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, Shaykh Yahya Ibrahim
    Assalamu Alaikum,

    I’d like a detailed article on the Islamic rulings regarding women travelling without mahram, either alone, or with Muslim female companions, for reasons other than Hajj, in my case specifically, two weeks doing a course on Islamic Civilisation overseas with a friend. I previously held the belief that this is not permissible unless the woman has no mahram, or is old enough for the rulings of the necessity for a mahram to be overlooked, but i recently came upon several articles that suggest that applying the hadiths relevant to this matter to this day and age, travel is permissible for women. I’m linking a piece which explains what I am talking about at the end of this comment in sha allah. What I want is an opinion from either Shaykh on the validity of this interpretation.

    Jazakamullah Khairan.

  37. explain why hudud was carried out for adultery. why did these people not make repentance? in surah furqan 68-70 it says And those who do not invoke with Allah another deity or kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed], except by right, and do not commit unlawful sexual intercourse. And whoever should do that will meet a penalty. Multiplied for him is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein humiliated . Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.
    there are other things which are worse than adultery & they can be forgiven during this lifetime. so what about adultery?

    • Ofcourse all sins are forgiven when sincerely repented for .

      In case of adultery , the hadd punishment that you see is not because the islamic court convicts them of it . Cuz getting convicted of adultery by islamic shariah is almost impossible ( the conditions to convict is almost impossible to meet ). It serves more as a deterrent .

      The cases of stoning at the time of the prophet (pbuh) and the early generations of islam had been ” confessions” by adulterers who had repented sincerely and wanted to be stoned . Cuz they wanted to be sure they are completely cleared of the sin (even the record of sin)
      May Allah have mercy on them .

      Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

      • Although it’s not necessary to be stoned to be forgiven ,
        They were so remorseful that they asked for it .

I throughly enjoy all the articles you all work so hard to write as well, but sometimes i want to read a range of stuff as well. The only two (three now including MusilimSI) websites i know with articles are yours, Imam Suhaib Webb’s. If maybe we could get a pool to pick from would be cool too? If you already have something like that please excuse my ignorance and inshallah i will keep looking. Thank you for your time.

  39. We all know that the story of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the most engaging throughout history. Yet, have you ever wondered why a book about his life is not a worldwide bestseller? Is it possible that so far we have fallen short in taking up the challenge to relate the beautiful story of our Prophet (PBUH) in an inspiring manner that captures the hearts of those in the West? “Jesus and The Last Messenger,” is a book that just got published, Alhamdulillah. It is a non-fiction work that is written in story form, focusing on the inspirational life of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Unlike known seerah texts, “Jesus and The Last Messenger” is written with simple, timely language that bridges the story of Jesus (PBUH) with that of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). With 78% of Americans identifying with Christianity, this is a unique approach to perform effective dawah since Jesus (PBUH) did indeed prophesize the Last Messenger. Insha’Allah check it out on Amazon, and we look forward to any book review muslimmatters.org is able to share with the community. JazakAllah Khair for your sincere efforts!

  40. Salam. I would like an article to answer my question. Say someone was interested in Islam and embraced it (after reading a verse in the Quran, for example). She shares her growth and journey through Islam to the world, only for a lot of the Muslim community to respond by throwing verbal abuse, insults, and to judge and insult her. After a while this takes a toll and she can not stand the verbal abuse, rudeness and scathing judgments of the Muslim community, and feeling like she doesn’t belong and does not want to be a part of this negative atmosphere anymore, she leaves Islam and declares herself no longer muslim.

    As the reason for her leaving was the mistreatment she received, with the muslims themselves at fault, would the people be then held responsible for this? What would happen to her? She did not receive kind guidance from muslims, so she shouldn’t be one of those who turn away from truth as truth wasn’t even presented to her properly? Only Allah knows?

  41. Asalamualaykum,
    I don’t know which author can explain this topic, which is why I haven’t specified any author on MuslimMatters. I’ve been studying on the Arab-Israeli conflict for school and knowing what happens makes me question the Muslim/Islamic perspective of the conflict. As a Muslim, I know it is wrong for the bloodshed and killings of innocents, as it has been done by the Arab states throughout this conflict. I am also aware that war nowadays is not as it was during the Prophet Muhammad (SAW)’s time. I am confused of how to view this conflict. Is it okay to pray that the people killed in this conflict be accepted as martyrs? Is it right for the Arabs to do what they have done? I am so confused by all of this, it almost affects my physical health.

    Jazakallahu khayr for everything that this site has put together.
