  8. Assalammu alaykum,

    Often seen as a taboo topic, hardly covered or addressed in our community, yet nevertheless still practiced is the subject of polygyny. We often read about how the Prophet Muhammed SAWS was as a husband (with one wife at a time), but never how he SAWS handled having multiple wives.

    How did he SAWS distribute his time amongst his wives? How did he SAWS respond to their jealousy? Did he SAWS promote the friendships amongst his wives, or did he SAWS remain uninvolved in the women’s affairs?

    What is considered being just, when the Ayat in Surat Al NISA states “marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one”.

    If a man cannot afford to take on a second wife, but the second wife waives his financial obligations… should he take on a second wife to protect his deen and prevent the divorce of the first wife?

    So many people are practicing this sunnah incorrectly… while we cannot prevent a sunnah from being practiced, can we not equip the men and women with the knowledge needed to make this practice honourable and traditional.

    JazakAllahu khayrun,
    BarakAllahu feekum ajma’een.
    Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

  11. Asalamu Alaykum,
    My query is personal. I am the only son and only Muslim in my family. My family business that I am expected to take over one day is a funeral home. I have worked there part time for several years but I wonder is it haram? We serve customers of all races and would also serve those of any religion but most are Christian. Jazzakallah Khayran for your time.

  13. Asalam-alaykom wa rahmat Allah wa barakatoh,

    I have a question that keeps me thinking a lot … Is it haram like it’s backbiting when I complain to someone about a certain person who has done me harm? My intention is to speak out to someone when I’m feeling down or upset and I just hope that my anger is not driving me astray ..

    Jazak Allah Khayran

  14. Salaam calaykum sheikh,

    Was wondering if you could write about interracial marriage in islam and how to deal with practising knowledgable parents that refuse proposal on these grounds (nationalism, tribalism and culture). Also parents that use emotional blackmail to their adult children in terms declining the good propsaol- using their status against us despite trying to please with them, espically for the sisters that need their father consent

    JazakAllahu khayrun

  15. Assalamu alaikkum ,

    There are many life coaches out there to motivate , with quotes in hands like no pain no gain , live as if you die tomorrow etc. ..

    Many a times Muslim brothers n sisters are getting confused and sometimes they feel satisfied with those concepts uttered by life coaches ( Brian tracy ,shiv khera etc ).Mainly in business world , presence of these kind of coaches are prevalent. I think muslims are bit backward to handle such problems in business world. Please discuss this matte.

  17. Salam,

    Ya Shiekh could you talk about how to deal with one’s past. I used to engage in haram activities with the other gender. But then I repented and change myself completely. Alhamdulillah it’s been over a year since I left my past ways. Now when I’m interested in a sister I’m not afraid to discuss my past because I want to be completely honest. However, people gossip about me and word reaches a sister before I can be even given a chance to explain myself or show here that I’m not that person anymore. I’m completely shut out and shutdown. Career wise I’m well established, academically I’m accomplished. But this is starting to get emotionally draining. Any advice would be appreciated.

  18. The status of a husband in Islam – addressing the sisters. I think, because Imams deal so much with domestic abuse, they rightly focus a lot on good treatment of wives, but the good treatment of husbands appears to be neglected. Not only in a dry, stating of ‘rights of husbands in Islam’ kind of way, but a more practical approach. I personally was blown away, when reading the book ‘The Surrendered Wife’ highly recommended by Sh. Mohammad Al Shareef. It made a huge difference in my marriage, in really giving women practical tips on how to respect a man, and the result is reciprocal love, which makes for an amazing marriage all in all.

  19. Polygny, how to deal with the fear of it, for women. Many women’s husbands have no intention of even marrying a second wife, but the fear and dislike of it is a very real constant threat to peace of mind. I don’t mind admitting I am one of them, and I know plenty of others who are the same. I know it was practiced by the best of mankind, but even his wives did get jealous. Polygny can be a major waswas for wives. Also, is polygny better than monogaqmy?

  20. Asalaam walaykum my brother in Islam.
    Brother the talk of re-establishing a Caliphate (Khilafah) is everywhere. The Muslims worldwide are talking about it, the media is full of such talk, its on youtube, facebook and twitter etc etc. I hear that working to establish Allah’s deen on earth is an obligation (fard) as is giving a baya to a Khalif (as was given to Abu Bakr [ra] after the passing of the Prophet [saw]).

    We are all aware that enjoining good and forbidding evil is an Islamic obligation and only through the establishment of Allah’s deen as a political authority can all maroof be established and all munkar removed.

    With regards this I have some questions which I hope you can answer.

    Is the establishment of the deen of Islam an obligation and if so who is it an obligation on?
    Is it an obligation to give bayah to a Khalif and if so how do we give bayah to a Khalif when we don’t have one? Is the principle of that to achieve a wajib is a wajib applicable here?
    Will Allah (SWT) account me on the Day of Judgment if I do not work for the establishment of Khilafah?

    Can you please please shed some light on this area. Jazakallah khair,
