The Position of a Father In Islam

The Prophet (PBUH) in no way noticed his father, and still developed into the paragon of human excellence. How many Ṣaḥāba have been orphaned due to their fathers being martyred? Weren’t greats like al-Ḥasan al-Baṣri, Abu Yūsuf al-Qāḍi, Imam ash-Shāfi’i, Imam Aḥmad b. Ḥanbal, Imam al-Bukhāri, all orphans? None of these have been hindered by the absence of their fathers. So do fathers even matter?

Obviously, they do (we will revisit superb orphans later), however pinpointing why can be pretty difficult, thinking about the politically charged nature of this subject and the emotion it provokes. After all, the magnitude of fathers extends from the “significance of men” discussion, and that is no longer the most popular, progressive, woke difficulty in today’s world. However, the backside line is that there is no utility or relevance for men until there is something special about them. There needs to be a distinction between guys and women and via extension between fathers and mothers. Otherwise, a father is truly disposable; you would possibly as well have a single mom or two mothers. It would no longer remember

Unfortunately, this is the fatherlessness experiment many are conducting proper now, whereby many fathers are decreased to biological contributors or at best-uninvolved financiers. According to the Pew Research Center, the 2-parent household is going through a rapid decline in the U.S., the double-mom parenting mannequin is demanding acceptance, and adolescents outside of wedlock have attained 1/3rd of all births due to the fact the 12 months 2000.

How damaging is this? Many types of research suggest that the consequences of fatherlessness have reached epidemic proportions and that so many developmental crises in kids and teenagers are at once linked with fatherlessness. To name a few:

80% of teens in psychiatric institutes stem from fatherless homes

90% of all runaway and homeless youth had been from fatherless homes

People are 2x as in all likelihood to commit suicide (especially boys) after a fatherless childhood

Children are 9x extra possibly to be sexually abused (especially girls) in a domestic besides the biological father present.

For a Muslim, these alarming numbers are telling you what you already know, because the Creator spared you of being based on widespread surveys, statistics, and their margin of error. A Muslim is informed that even though all are equal before God in terms of salvation and human dignity, there stay variations between men and ladies when it comes to certain sectors of the social realm; “And the male is no longer like the female.” [3:36] skip these nuanced differences, and you will create new problems whilst attempting to solve the current ones. The Quran also calls our interest to God’s cosmic patterns, and the dynamic interaction between opposites in His universe; “By the night time as it covers, and by way of the day as it brightens, and by means of the spectacle advent of the male and the female; your strivings are immensely diverse.” [92:1-4] in other words, the complementary existence of night time and day, male and female, properly and evil, are all crucial factors of balance in the universe.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
