Oh Allah! I ask you for the understanding of the prophets and the memory of the messengers, and those nearest to you.
Oh Allah! Make my tongue full of your remembrance and my heart with awe of you.
Oh Allah! You do whatever you wish, and you are my availer and protector and best of aid.”

Men are pretty gross, but Muslim men don’t really sit around and talk about paradise like that. We just don’t.
Like, I know, men are really bad, but like, c’mon now, we really don’t do this.
Also, I have written about this in my index page, and it’s really weird that you took the time to write this, but not search anything there.
But, since I’m here, I’d just like to bring up a few points:
First is a Hadith Qudsi, where God says:
"I have prepared for My righteous servants what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what has not even occurred to a human heart."
While Sheikh Faraz Khan writes:
"So in reality, we cannot truly make ‘sense’ of anything in Paradise – our minds simply do not have the capacity. However Allah Most High has described its pleasures in language that we use, so as to give us approximations [however distant] based on pleasures we experience in this world."
He then goes on to write:
“Muslims do not go about their day-to-day lives thinking of the maidens of Paradise; they are not obsessed with it the way they are often made out to be.”
Anyways, I doubt that anything I say will change your mind, but if you’re going to try and find evidence that men are gross, there’s a much easier route: just log into facebook.
Kudos on the ingenuity though.
Knowledge becomes blameworthy when it’s purpose is memorisation and regurgitation, it’s worth only exists in understanding.
Every portion of knowledge requires ten portions of understanding. Those who stumbled off the path were the ones who’s knowledge surpassed their intellect.
..when raising their children and attempt to incorporate Islam into their lives.
Firstly let me say this, I speak from my own experiences and what I have witnessed first hand. I was sitting among family friends and having lunch. One of our family friends was feeding her son who is in 2nd grade and we were discussing what books he likes to read. His mother was feeding him, spoon after spoon. After a while he refused more spoonfuls and said he was full. Perfectly fine, the kid is full, it’s normal, but of course Arabs don’t understand that concepts and will pressure you into more food. Someone jumped in and said to him “you must finish eating, otherwise your food will go to waste and Allah will punish you severely”
Immediately I jumped in, because leave it up to my lack of patience to do so… “Punish you severely? Really now? That’s the best way you can explain the concept of wasting food and how Allah will deal with him?”
This is the problem with most Muslim adults, they create this dark harsh unmerciful image of God in children’s heads and continue it as they get older. That’s how I was raised. “Allah will do this to you if you don’t do that, Allah will do that you if you do this” ..and I grew up distancing myself away from God because in my head He was evil, harsh, unmerciful, and out to get everyone.
So how is it that you can blame your children for being distant from Islam as they get older, when you have filled their heads up with all these cruel misconceptions of how God will punish and punish and punish us for something so minor as being full and not being able to finish your dish?
The Quran states over and over and over and over and over again how compassionate and merciful God is, so why not fuse those ideas into your conversation?
Your children depend on YOU to help paint an image of the world around them, don’t use force and dark harsh colors when doing so.

today i met a christian guy who tries to follow the rules of the bible really good and i asked him if he is against gays because of Leviticus 20:13 and he told me no, he doesn’t because of Matthew 7
and he added that he would never judge anybody on their beliefs or way of living because only god can judge the people
this guy man
That would be *actual* Christianity for you.

Imam al-Shafi’i remarked, “There is a verse in the Quran that every wrongdoer should be terrified of.”
He was asked, “Which verse is that?”
He replied, “‘And your Lord never forgets.’” [Surah Maryam: 64]

Instead of condemning people, lets try to understand them. Lets try to figure out why they do what they do. Thats a lot more profitable and intriguing than criticism; and it breeds sympathy, tolerance and kindness. To know all is to forgive all.
As Dr. Johnson said: God himself, sir, does not propose to judge man until the end of his days. Why should you and I?
