So are you guys Sunni or salafi

Salaf means somebody who’s dead and gone, in other words our predecessors. So to even call myself that wouldn’t make any sense. I am a sunni, follower of the Prophet Muhammad, Quran and Sunnah. I follow the footsteps of the salaf and love them from my heart. In saying that I don’t think accusing people of deviance, innovation and being kafir is acceptable if they don’t call themselves the same thing as I. I believe when seeing someone do wrong, the right thing to do is attempt in helping them, and make dua for them.  I don’t think “my” specific way is the only Islam because Islam is wide and out of Allah’s compassion and mercy, this religion was made to be in the middle. I am not excessive in one side or the other.

Is it a sin for a guy to be girly? Just girly like he loves girly stuff like make up.

Islam forbids men to imitate women and women to imitate men, and in fact it emphatically forbids that, to such an extent that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed those who go against the human nature with which Allah created them. 

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet  (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) cursed men who imitate women and women who imitate men, and he said: “Throw them out of your houses.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5885).

Assalamualaikum, I am a Muslim girl and I am in love with a non Muslim guy. I told him I can't be with him because I can only marry a Muslim, he told me he is willing to be a Muslim. I told him about all the Islam rules, how he can't touch me and stuff before marriage and he agreed. What is my next step?

Waalaikum salam. I think you should get advice from a local sheikh or someone close to you who knows the deen well because these sort of matters need to be discussed in detail. In my own rough opinion, I think you should wait because his conversion to Islam should be for the sake of Allah, not about you. Genuine focus on the deen is a key aspect in character you want to be looking for when finding a future spouse. Soon after, if you think he has made genuine changes for the sake of Allah and has become a Muslim, you wont need to tell him what to do and he wont need to agree with you because he’ll be distancing himself anyway. When you notice this, you two should pray istikhara, follow the steps and if the signs seem good, seek advice from your parents for him to ask for your hand. Ask your family members, accept their feedback and criticism, and be logical. In sha Allah all goes well and all the best for the fuure!

My thoughts on Uthman Ibn Affan ❥

Uthman Ibn Affan

This is the type of soul who wanders once along this earth,

Words will limit what I feel his acknowledgement is worth,

I want to tell you about a man who we’re indebted to for Islam,

Who we owe our appreciation for the single version of the Quran,

A man - not just a man, but a spirit heavy, carried with light,

To any who object I stand firmly for his right!

One of the most modest men, a soul of richness and humility,

Characteristics which are proof of sources of profitability,

This is a companion who inspires me so much I start to cry,

Living proof that the realest of men are those who are humble and shy!

In a world where being a “man” is thought of as being loud and mean,

A definition inaccurate for real men you have not seen,

He was kind and humble in his nature, yet a fierce warrior in war,

Overflowing with generosity, he supplied and fed the poor,

He donated the Muslim army immense amount of supplies,

And for that Allah elevated him, a bride in Jannah was his prize,

He gave of what he had and the best of what he owned,

He pardoned and forgave a lot, many people he condoned,

He was known as Dhun Noorayn, the possessor of two lights,

The only man ever known to acquire these honourable rights,

To wed two of the prophets daughters, one after the other,

The Prophet loved him dearly, as a companion and a brother,

Even the angels felt shy before him because of his pureness and shame,

Loved and respected by all the people before and after Islam had came,

He was beautiful in his complexion, as he resembled the Prophet himself,

He was a hafiz in the Quran, it was in his heart not on his shelf,

He was a  spirit impeccable, and so inspirational as a man,

So proud to know my predecessors consist of Uthman ibn Affan,

The third of the Caliphates, a martyr he was destined to be,

The Prophet declared that in Jannah Uthman would be his appointee,

In spite of his wealth and comfort, he lived a very simple life,

He went to hajj every year, he was kind to his kids and wife,

Gentle and compassionate, men like him we lack today,

He would fast every few days, and in the nights he’d get up to pray,

He done things for himself and he let his servants sleep,

He was courageous and very brave, but the graves would make him weep,

He was promised by the Prophet that paradise was his abode,

But he earned it at a price as he soon learned along the road,

For forty days he fasted whilst besieged by the hypocrites,

Not letting blood be shed in his cause; he endured every second of it,

Then one day he saw a dream where Rasulallah addressed,

That today he would break his fast with him, his fast was put to rest,

When he knew his time was near and the rebels would impose,

He adjusted his pants to cover himself, so his awrah would not expose,

Allahu Akbar! What a man! When death is drawing near,

He still thinks about his awrah, the thought makes me shed a tear.

He was attacked and assassinated in the most gruesome of ways,

By people who are surely destined to burn forever in the blaze,

They struck him like an animal, and tossed his body on a bin,

Never have we as Muslims heard of a more atrocious sin,

But by Allah he will have Jannah, and be compensated for his trial,

And the day we walk in Jannah too, I pray to see his smile,

I pray to see the day where I get to meet this blessed man,

Who spent his life in the name of Islam, Muhammad and Ar-Rahman,

He left behind an example of someone who’s love is real,

When raw and bold and confronting, this is real love you feel,

When sacrifice comes natural and Allah comes before you,

And your thoughts are consumed with fear with everything you do,

I take from him a special gift, one very close to my heart,

A special section of the deen, he contributed a very big part.

I’m proud to know Uthman and the things he left behind,

If you get to know him too, many treasures you will find.

"Our world is a finite place where people, both individually and collectively, face the problem of scarcity. Scarcity is the condition in which human wants are forever greater than the available supply of time, goods, services and resources. Because of scarcity, it is impossible to satisfy every desire."

~ ¦ Prepare For Akhira ¦ Abu Taubah - Hamza Yusuf ¦

"Some things are only between you and Allah because the entire universe altogether can’t even come close to protecting and nurturing you like He does."
