President Joe Biden Administration to halt controversial ‘Remain in Mexico’ program.

“Remain in Mexico,” formally known as the Migration Protection Protocols Policy, or MPP, forced back more than 60,000 asylum-seekers during the Trump administration, as part of an effort to deter migration at the southern border. Many immigrants faced rape, kidnapping and murder while they languished in Mexico, according to advocacy groups.

“Talk To Her”

Islamic Sexual Morality


https://www.facebook.com/notes/781524179062911/

Marriage is obligatory for whoever is able to afford it, has desire for sexual intercourse, and is afraid to indulge in fornication. Here, it is obligatory because protecting oneself against fornication and preserving one’s chastity is obligatory, and this cannot be achieved except through marriage. Al-Qurtubi says: “Celibacy is not recommended for whoever is able to bear the expenses of marriage, and is likely to commit illicit affairs that violate both his honor and his religion, for one sometimes may not be able to overcome temptation except by marriage. In this case marriage is, according to a scholarly consensus, obligatory. But one who has desire for sexual intercourse, but does not have enough money for the expenditures of marital life may find solace in the words of Allah, Exalted be He, Who says: “Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His Grace.” (An-Nur: 33) 

Marriage is Highly Recommended

It is important to realize that in Islamic texts the idea of marriage is not restricted to a platonic relationship between husband and wife, nor is it confined to sex for the purpose of procreation . The legal term for marriage is “nikah” which literally means sexual intercourse.

Marriage is a highly recommended deed. Allah says,

“Marry the spouseless among you…if they are poor, God will enrich them of His bounty.” (Qur’an 24:32)

The first word of this verse begins with “ankihu” (Marry!) which is an imperative form of the word nikah. According to the principles of Islamic jurisprudence, any communication in imperative form from God can have two levels of meaning: either it is an obligatory command or a very high recommendation.

And therefore we see that in Islam celibacy is not considered as a virtue. Based on this verse we find the Prophet saying that, “Whoever refrains from marriage because of fear of poverty, he has indeed thought badly of God.” In another verse Allah says:

“… Then marry such women as seem good to you – two, three or four. But if you fear that you will not do justice between your wives, then marry only one…” (4:3)

Sex has been openly recommended in the Qur’an,

“When they [i.e., the wives] have cleansed themselves [after menstruation], you go into them as Allah has commanded.” (2:222)

The phrase ‘commanded you’ does not refer to any legislative command; that is, it does not mean that as soon as a person’s wife becomes clean from her period, he should immediately have sex with her. It is a creative command and refers to the sexual urge which Allah has placed in our nature. And when the sexual urge is counted as a creative command of God, then who can associate it in any way with sin and evil?!

Source: Chapter Two: The Islamic Sexual Morality (1) Its Foundation:

“A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet asking how the Prophet worshiped (Allah), and when they were informed about that, they considered their worship insufficient and said, ‘Where are we from the Prophet as his past and future sins have been forgiven.’ Then one of them said, ‘I will offer Prayer throughout the night forever.’ Another said, ‘I will fast throughout the year and will not break my fast.’ The third said, ‘I will keep away from women and will not marry forever.’ Allah’s Messenger came to them and said, “Are you the same people who said such-and-such? By Allah, I am more submissive to Allah and more afraid of Him than you; yet I fast and break my fast, I do sleep and I also marry women. So he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is not from me (not one of my followers).”

However, the Islamic ruling on marriage differs according to the state and conditions of each person. It can be highly recommended in some cases, or even obligatory under certain conditions. It can also be prohibited or only permitted under other circumstances. The different rulings on marriage are explained in the fatwa issued by the late prominent Muslim scholar and author of Fiqh As-Sunnah, Sheikh Sayyed Sabiq. He states the following:

“Obligatory Marriage:

Marriage is obligatory for whoever is able to afford it, has desire for sexual intercourse, and is afraid to indulge in fornication. Here, it is obligatory because protecting oneself against fornication and preserving one’s chastity is obligatory, and this cannot be achieved except through marriage. Al-Qurtubi says: “Celibacy is not recommended for whoever is able to bear the expenses of marriage, and is likely to commit illicit affairs that violate both his honor and his religion, for one sometimes may not be able to overcome temptation except by marriage. In this case marriage is, according to a scholarly consensus, obligatory. But one who has desire for sexual intercourse, but does not have enough money for the expenditures of marital life may find solace in the words of Allah, Exalted be He, Who says: “Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His Grace.” (An-Nur: 33)

Man is recommended to suppress his sexual appetite by fasting; a group of Hadith transmitters narrated on the authority of Ibn Mas`ud (may Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “O youth! Whoever amongst you is able to marry, let him marry, because it helps him keep his eyes away from lustful looks and preserve his chastity. And whoever is not able to marry, let him observe fasting, as it is a shield for him (i.e. protection from lapsing in fornication).”

HAPPY 4TH OF July 2022

America on this Fourth is troubled and divided. But it has seen and experienced worse — rioting, rebellion, terrorism, civil war, the Great Depression — and it has adapted and endured. In his long-forgotten acceptance speech, McGovern (who died 10 years ago) delivered some words worth recalling on this day:

“It is the time for this land to become again a witness to the world for what is just and noble in human affairs. It is time to live more with faith and less with fear, with an abiding confidence that can sweep away the strongest barriers between us and teach us that we are truly brothers and sisters.”

Opinion This 1972 speech is more relevant than ever this Fourth of July

Seek Refuge with Allah!

.

I seek forgiveness from Allah, who is my Creator and Cheriser, from every sin I committed knowingly or unknowingly, secretly or openly. I also seek His forgiveness for all sins which I am aware of or am not aware of. Certainly You (O Allah!), are the Knower of the hidden and the Concealer of mistakes and the Forgiver of sins. And there is no power and no strength except from Allah, the Most High, the Most Great.

All Praise and Glory belongs to Allah!

Allah is He, than whom there is no other god― Who knows (all things) both secret and open; He Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


Allah is He, than whom there is no other god― the sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection). the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him.


He is Allah the Creator the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the exalted in Might, the Wise.

Respite from Punishment

Life is a Test for Mankind. If we do good, GOD rewards us in kind or multiple times more with good for our good. Even a good intention is rewarded with good from GOD.

If our intent is to do bad, but we do not do the bad then GOD will reward us with good. If we do wrong, then GOD punishes us unless He chooses to forgive.

{No, expect no change in the Way of GOD in His dealing with the people of the past.}

“So, no change will you find in the Way of GOD (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in the Way of GOD (way of dealing) with His slaves.”

Gambling, drinking alcohol, fornication, homosexuality, etc., have been part of life for as long as man has existed even though men of GOD have preached against these things.

Gambling (once illegal) is now a legalized aspect of everyday economic life (lottery tickets, casinos, etc.). Drinking (Prohibition) is now a lucrative part of American life. Both gambling and alcohol punish the user and their families in many instances.

Marijuana (another evil) has sent many people to prison for its use and distribution (mostly young African Americans). Destroying those lives, yet it is now a legal aspect of American economic life, and it is growing.

Homosexuality is the evil most recently legalized into American life. The complete moral decadence of Sodom and Gomorrah perhaps show that although GOD grants respite, there is a limit, and He does punish in this life for disobedience and indulgence in evil.

Some people choose not to do these things, while others choose to live their lives as if devoted in some way to these forbidden things (and not to GOD). So that they can enjoy whatever pleasure they feel they get from these things.

If GOD chooses, they could be punished immediately. But GOD wants us to earn His Good pleasure by our keeping away from the evil bad things that scriptures, and our moral GOD given common sense warn mankind against.

“So, no change will you find in the Way of GOD (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in the Way of GOD (way of dealing) with His slaves.”

Quran 35:43

 “Sound the Trumpet Sunday” on June 5th 2022

National Urban League Confronts Racial Hatred and Gun Violence with “Sound the Trumpet Sunday” on June 5th https://bit.ly/3m8C8uD

Before we can even properly process and mourn #Uvalde and #Buffalo and the hundreds of mass shootings since the start of this year, yet another gunman has caused destruction at a #Tulsa hospital.

This must end.

Congress has ignored this crisis for far too long. And we can’t accept its lack of action.
