Before exploring my blog, please remember this: If you came here to sincerely learn about Islam, please be open minded. Let go of any ill-feelings, ideas, thoughts, impressions, etc. that you may have against Islam or Muslims, due to the media or judging a "Muslim."

For better understanding of Islam and Muslims, I suggest reading the posts in order starting from August with the label Introduction to Islam (scroll down and look to the right for blog archive for proper order (from bottom to top)).

If you are interested in learning more about Islam and Muslims and would like additional materials/information, please leave a comment and I will try my best to help.

*Information that reads "Sisters" is for females ONLY. Likewise, anything reading "Brothers" is for males ONLY. Whether "sisters or brothers" is mentioned throughout my blog or on another site, please respect the rights of other people, both Muslims and non-Muslims.

**I do not intend to argue or debate with anyone, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs. If something is personal, disrespectful, or offensive, keep it to yourself. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT! (this includes what you type) If you do not wish to learn about Islam or Muslims, but just want to start trouble, do it somewhere else, not here! (or better, don't start trouble at all) Haters are NOT welcome here!

Please leave comments or questions you may have regarding Islam or Muslims. I will get to them as soon as possible. Enjoy your time here!

Some Advice to the Muslim Women by Khalid Yasin lecture notes

Allah and Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) don’t like Muslim women spreading and complaining about their husbands, family, house, food, etc.

Muslim women have the right to “back door” divorce (khula).

• Awra of Muslim women is the whole body and voice! Everything except the face and hands must be covered minimum.

Conditions of Clothing
Clothing should not:
1. Reveal shape of body
2. Be transparent
3. Resemble the clothing of women from Jahiliyah (period of ignorance before Islam)
4. Imitate men
5. Imitate kuffar

• Plucking and designing eyebrows is Haraam! Allah’s curse is upon plucked and plucker.
• Curse on women who put on perfume outside her home.

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: The Prophet said: "I was shown the hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful." It was asked, "Do they disbelieve in Allah?" (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, "They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, 'I have never received any good from you." (Sahih Bukhari, book #2, hadith #28)

• If a woman cooks, cleans, etc. for her husband, it is a blessing for her in front of Allah. It is not her obligation; she is not a servant of man!
• Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) took care of himself and his family, and was grateful!

In the home, women should keep herself, children, and home clean and keep secrets safe in husband’s absence.

Women can work as long as the work does not compromise her responsibility, her hijab, her family, or put her in danger.

Advice to Women
1. Responsibility to pursue knowledge
• “Women are the teachers of the home.” –Khalid Yasin
• They are the first support for the Muslim community.
2. Advise each other
3. Engage in dawah
• Inform and reform Muslims
• Clarify and invite non-Muslims
• Propagate Islamic message
4. Be aware of deviations, chauvinism, personal interest and rebellion.
