Q: Salam brother Imaam,
I was too sinful. What sins I did I think I don’t have to mention it, as its the matter between me and Allah (SWT).
But I have asked forgiveness from him, and I know he forgive you if you ask it from your heart, and not to do all those sins.
Now I am scared to attempt any sin. I try to keep m Continue reading
Q: When it comes to the religion, is it better to be a hypocrite or retain your knowledge.
For example i have attained knowledge of the Deen. And for some reason i don’t apply it or sometimes i have difficulties performing them. In that case should i preach my knowledge, because it might be an advice or easier on another individual to perform it. Or should i keep my knowledge to my self.

Q: I have committed so much sin in my life. there is no hope for me. I get away from one sin to another. And after a while i see myself back in that same sin. I feel like my heart became dark that the quran doesn’t have effect on it. I listened to lectures and fail to follow what it said. When i go to islamic events such as conference, I feel guilty of all my sins, and just want to repent. After a while I see myself in that same spot again. when I was young i was really good muslim but now i feel like there is no place for me in this world. I started to hate myself, and lost connection with my family. I tried to find a good companion, but couldnt find one. My only good source for me to learn about islam is thru youtube. I dont know where to start from, i fee like I am lost n no hope for me. I disobed my Creator so many times, and he always gives me a chance, but now i feel like he give up on me because I failed n ruined my life.

I was raised to believe that a persons deen/iman was more important then any thing else and I have stuck by that belief my parents have instilled in me. Recently I was proposed to and alhamdulillah Allah has answered my prayers because I truly feel lucky to have this person. Sadly we won’t be getting married for sometime and the reason for that is he doesn’t come from money (i.e. wealthy parents) but I do and because of that my mother expects him to throw a lavish wedding. Every time I try to talk to her about it she asks “is he marrying you or are you marrying him” the way she talks it’s as if he showed up at our door step pretending to be someone else but he was honest with her and told her he didn’t have much but would work hard. I as his witness know that he’s worked his behind off but with his current job what he’s making comes out to nothing after all his bills are paid, he’s going to school fulltime and so he cant work as much.
I want to marry him and I want to help pay for the wedding because according to my mother “if there is no wedding there is no marriage” but at the same time she wont let me help him because of the pressure my mother is putting on him he wants to take out a loan, I told her this and she said it was fine, how could it possibly be fine for us to enter into a marriage with a debt that big? I have the money its not as though I’m steeling from her but she still won’t allow me. Can she do that? And what advise do you have when it comes to talking to my mother because it bothers me that she all of a sudden is changing her mind about what matters, Btw you’ll see that I haven’t mentioned my father I’m not sure if you’ve heard the line but it goes “the man is the head of the house hold but the woman is the neck and she chooses where that head turns” unfortunately in my case this applies. Forgive me for running on. Jazakallahu khair.

The best nikah is a nikah that has simplicity and least amount of expense attributed towards it. (Paraphrased from miskaat shreef. Kitab un nikah.) Continue reading
