Why Don’t I Refute Anymore?

Why Don’t I Refute Anymore?

It is in our human nature to be argumentative, but, we need to know when it is time to stop arguing and just accept other people’s opinions.

We are always going to meet people who have different beliefs, ideal’s and opinions, but being respectful of them is very important.

Why Don’t I Refute Anymore?

Sheikh Yasir Qadhi says, “A little bit of knowledge is dangerous.”

Sheikh Qadhi discusses this in detail and states that the more knowledge people gain the more arrogant and ignorant they become to other peoples ideas.

“So fear Allah and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), if you are believers”

Quran 8:1

However, the more knowledge you do gain the more you learn about other people and their opinions.

The more you understand about what the scholars argued and their difference of opinion the better it is for you when talking to other people, as it eliminates any need to refute and argue with other people.

Furthermore, experience with other people plays a huge role in how you deal with others who do not share the same views as you. This eliminates your need to judge other people.

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: The Prophet said: “The gates of Paradise are opened on Monday and Thursday, and everyone who does not associate anything with Allah is forgiven, except a man who has had an argument with his brother. It is said: ‘Wait for these two until they reconcile, wait for these two until they reconcile, wait for these two until they reconcile.”

Muslim

We need to stop worrying about other people and take care of ourselves, we all sin and make mistakes, but the best of us are those that work on ourselves and our relationship with Allah.

Also focusing on the good in other people is what we should seek to do, and not critiquing minor mistakes or opinions is better.

By following these steps we can become better role models to other people and avoid petty arguments.

Never Give Up Prayer

My brother and my sister. Pray.
No matter what’s happening in your life. Pray.
No matter what sin you’re committing and how much of it you’re committing. Pray.
No excuses
Sister tells me, “Brother I don’t wear Hijab”. I tell you pray.
She tells me “Look you know my dress code is not the best”. I tell you pray.
Brother “I drink Alcohol.” Pray.
Brother tells me “I sell drugs”. Pray.
“I take drugs”. Pray.
“I have a girlfriend and I’m sleeping with her”. I tell you pray.
No matter what’s happening in your life. Pray.
“But brother, how can I be committing all these sins and pray?”
“That’s disrespectful, that makes me a hypocrite.”
I tell you no! That’s why we pray.
Because we’re not perfect, we’re sinners. We do wrong.
Pray. Allah says “The Prayer will take you away from sin”. Pray.
You know sometimes people say, “Look, let me straighten my life out”
“and Insha’Allah I will start praying”.
Habibi you will never straighten anything out if you don’t pray.
That’s why you pray, to straighten your life out.
Nothing my brothers and sisters
Let no man get between you and Allah. Pray.
No matter what is happening in your life. Pray.
No matter where you are. Pray.
You know sometimes people come to you and tell you
“Brother, sister you’re a hypocrite.”
“Sister, you know, you don’t wear the Hijab and you pray.”
Tell her “Sister, thank you very much. I’m a hypocrite, May Allah reward you.”
But my prayer is between me and Allah.
No body else’s business.
The Prophet of Allah he says the difference between us and them, is the prayer.
The very first question on the day of resurrection
that you’re going to be asked is about the prayer.
If you pass, then everything after that is going to be easy.
But if you fail that, then everything after that is just going to get worse.
So pray. Pray my brothers you will earn Allah’s love
Pray and you will earn His mercy and His forgiveness.
Imagine your friend is Allah. Never mind wealth, the Heavens and the Earth belongs to Him.
You become an unstoppable force when Allah is on your side.
So please my brothers and sisters, no matter what’s happening in your life pray.
Don’t let anyone turn you away from Allah.
You know when your forehead is on the floor. That’s the closest you will ever be to Allah
Cry to him, beg to him. Ask Allah for direction and you will see happiness through prayer.
We ask Allah to make us of those who establish their prayer and never leave it no matter what.
Asalamu Alaykum[scrolling_box display=”category” category=”13″]

How Should Muslims React to Homosexuality

How Should Muslims React to Homosexuality
Dr Yasir Qadhi addresses this topic

This question always causes a lot of controversy and people are very emotionally involved with it. It is very clear from the quran that one of the many sins that a muslim should not do is that of engaging in intercourse in sexual relationships outside marriage, and Islam has forbidden extra-marital and pre-martial intercourse. So if a Muslim finds himself or herself having same-sex impulses or attractions, we say to them you are no less of a Muslim simply because you feel this way.

In fact, if you battle those urges, then Wallahi you might be a better Muslim than me because your urges are more difficult maybe and you would have to have more of a battling within yourself

So simply because a person has same sex desires, does not diminish their Eman (faith) or their status in Islam. If they act upon it, we say to this brother or sister that you have committed a sin and repent to Allah.

Dr Yasir Qadhi explains how a Muslim should deal with urges of Homosexuality and how we are expected to deal with this controversial topic.
