Would You Reject a Proposal from someone like ummul mu'mineen Khadijah (ra)?

To my fellow young brothers seeking marriage, ask yourself an honest question. If a sister were to offer you a proposal, and she was wealthier, more educated, and more accomplished than you, but older as well and previously widowed (or divorced) with children, would you seriously consider that proposal? And would your family approve or be supportive of that kind of proposal?

It's not surprising if your answer is no – and perhaps you have some legitimate concerns, but I would wager that most brothers would probably reject that proposal in a heartbeat because that's not the kind of woman they or their parents envision when they think of the ideal spouse.



1) Backbiting is wrong

2) And then I came across as: They are to hide the faults of man and the rest of creation, not only from others, but even from themselves and to have compassion and forgiveness for even the worst of sins

3) And whilst I understand both, my question is, Im sure we all know there are situations where you have to expose a persons faults for the better picture? 

4) How does it work? What is the best approach?

Im thinking of many different situations and getting a bit muddled


Nelson Mandela has returned to his Creator. 

The Prophet (SAW) praised Mut`im b. Adi because he was a man who stood up for what was right, and helped the downtrodden Muslim community at a time when the Quraysh was guilty of the height of injustice. 

It is my opinion that if there was one man in our time who truly embodied that spirit of Mut`ims struggle, it was Nelson Mandela. Of the rewards that Allah gives a person in this life is respect and fame, and it is very likely that the genuine love all felt towards him was a result of his sincere efforts to help the weak and oppressed of his nation, and fight the unjust, tyrannical, inhumane and un-Islamic notion of white supremacy and Apartheid. 

Do Arab Women need greater protection?

One morning, Enas Abdel Wanis was about to leave home to go to work at the National Council for Civil Liberties and Human Rights (NCCHR) in Benghazi, in Libya, when she discovered her car had been burnt. Her crime had been to advocate for better security for civilians and the disarmament of militias that had been terrorising her city. Since then, Wanis has had to comply with the security restrictions set by her family: to do her job (document and monitor human rights violations), she now has to be chaperoned by her father on field visits.

How do you truly argue something with conviction?

Say for example someone says to you,

'So, around the time when the Muhammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) had the revelation of the Qu'ran sent to him, how do you truly know that it is the word of Allah (swt) and not because ideas of those certain facts mentioned in Qu'ran (that are always shown to be correct against the science now) are not ideas that people had at the time?'

That was very wordy. I apologise. But my eyes are tired.
