QUESTION & ANSWER
AS-SALAAMU-ALAIKUM SHAYKH: WHERE CAN I FIND STORIES OF UMAR (RA) WHO WROTE TO A MUSLIM THAT TO STAY AWAY FROM KAFIR WOMEN... I REMEMBER YOU SPEAKING OF THIS IN PAST DARS ?
Made lawful to you this day are AtTayyibat [all kinds of Halal (lawful) foods, which Allah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, etc., milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.). The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable animals, etc.) of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them. (Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before your time, when you have given their due Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girl-friends. And whosoever disbelieves in the Oneness of Allah and in all the other Articles of Faith [i.e. His (Allah's), Angels, His Holy Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and AlQadar (Divine Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers.
O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust).
As long as there are single Muslim girls, do not bypass the Muslim girl to marry a kafir girl.
"`Umar disliked this practice so that the Muslims do not refrain from marrying Muslim women, or for similar reasons." An authentic chain of narrators stated that Shaqiq said: Once Hudhayfah married a Jewish woman and `Umar wrote to him, "Divorce her." He wrote back, "Do you claim that she is not allowed for me so that I divorce her He said, "No. But, I fear that you might marry the whores from among them." Ibn Jarir related that Zayd bin Wahb said that `Umar bin Khattab said, "The Muslim man marries the Christian woman, but the Christian man does not marry the Muslim woman." [Tafsir ibn Kathir]
ALLAH IS THE CREATOR...DO WE SHARE IN THIS IN THE SENSE THAT CAN WE CREATE A BUILDING? OR DO WE MAKE A BUILDING?
Human beings Allah creates, because the ruh is what you need to make someone alive.
The word Create you should leave to Allah alone
*Human beings make but Allah creates
because Allah is the one and only creator al khaaliq = the Only Creator
ANOTHER QUESTION IF YOU HAVE TIME: IS FEMINISM IN LINE WITH THE HAQQ? I SEE MANY MUSLIM WOMEN IN THE WEST JOINING THE FEMINST MOVEMENT. IS THIS OK?
You are not allowed to join a feminist movement
Although some truth is in what they say. For example in India they speak out against the killing of girl children
They speak out for the rights of women but we don't need feminism to speak for womens rights
This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Of Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Islam is perfect. We don't need man made isms
There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered.
All the problems you encounter in life, can be resolved with Quran
Stay away from male chauvinism and stay away from feminism because shaitan uses these isms to turn us against each other
SHEIKH YOU SAID ONE TIME, "YOU CAN'T HATE THE ACTION OF KUFAAR, BUT ALSO THEY PERSON BECAUSE YOU WILL MARRY THEM TO YOUR DAUGHTERS IF YOU ONLY HATE THEIR ACTIONS". SO, HOW CAN WE NOT MAKE BARAA FROM KUFAAR GENERALLY? SHEIKH, CAN YOU DO A SEPERATE LECTURE FOR THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM AND THEIR COUNTERPARTS. SO WE DON'T WRONG KUFAAR BASED ON MAKING BARAA FROM KUFAAR ON A INDIVIDUAL BASIS.?
I don't think I said that because it doesn't make sense
Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allah loves those who deal with equity. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:8)
