We would like to thank everyone who responded to the call for help for MM. We are sorting through it and trying to figure out how to best utilize the offered help.  Pls bear with us, as this process may take some time. jazakumAllahkhair.

Around the world, Muslims yet again find themselves at the receiving end of oppression and injustice, from Sr. Marwa’s murder in Germany, to widespread human rights abuses in China.

Here are some “deep thoughts” from Shaykh Yasir Qadhi (you can follow him on twitter now) to help with open-thread thoughts!

  • If you ever find yourself rushing through salat to make it to another engagement, it’s time to reorganize your priorities.
  • As true love of Allah increases, yearning for worldly pleasures decreases.
  • A Muslim’s honor lies in humbling himself completely before al-Azeez.
  • One of the worst evils of public sins is that, even if you don’t do the sin yourself, it desensitizes you to the evil nature of the sin.
  • Hammad b. Zayd asked his teacher, “Hasn’t knowledge increased in our times?” Reply: “People talk more, but real knowledge has diminished.”
  • A son will never appreciate how much his parents have sacrificed for him, and how ungrateful he was, until he experiences parenthood himself
  • Imam al-Shafi`i (d. 204) said, “Knowledge is not measured by how much is memorized, but rather by how much it is acted on.”
  • When I know first-hand that any pleasure a sin gives me will be followed by deep regret and disgust, why is it that I continue to sin?
  • It is impossible to expect someone to understand why music is haram when s/he has not experienced the sweetness of the Quran.

    Props to Sh. Yasir for going on Twitter! You can really see how awesome shaykhs are when you give them tools like this that give you a glimpse into people’s minds and see the sincerity within. Its a big tool for fostering community ma sha Allah.

In answering this question, one has the choice to take on their marriage with all its challenges or look realistically at divorce. There is dignity in making it work, and there is dignity in starting fresh for the right reasons.

How can we weigh the pros and cons of each of these choices? How soon should we sound the alarm and seek help? What do we do after picking one option or the other?

Haleh Banani holds a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology, and this TDC her session is dedicated to the factors one should take in making this choice.

Listen to her on The Mad Mamluks Podcast:
