    • Yes, that’s the way it must be. There is no compulsion in religion. Please contact your nearest Masjid Imam. He will guide you. Congratulations!

      हां श्रीमान, यही वह तरीका होना चाहिए। धर्म में कोई बाध्यता नहीं है। कृपया अपने निकटतम मस्जिद इमाम से संपर्क करें। वह आपकी मदद करेगा। बधाई!


  6. Iam an atheist and I accept Islam 90% ,but I can’t due to the following reasons:

    ◆It is said that Nonmuslims will go to hell:
    Then what about Mother teresa and other good Nonmuslims

    ◆Women has security but no independence:
    ●Many muslims are not proud of Sania mirza.
    ●Girl should not talk to a boy

    ◆Slavery of BLACK people and Casteism:
    Negros-500yrs. Casteism-2000yrs
    Why god didn’t do anything or rescue those people?

    ◆Keep the faith in God first – Islam,christian n all
    Keep the faith in yourself first – Buddhism

    ◆Adam and Eve got married but after that how could their children could mate each other to produce more kids ie. How could brother and sister can mate each other

  10. Namaz Mai rafayadhain karna or chest Mai haath baand Kar namaz padhna prophet Mohammad S.A.W se kab tak saabit hai unke aakhri waqt tak


  11. I recently viewed a short film on sharia law where a woman was stoned to death in the middle East . It was based on true events and the film, I am sorry to say depicted Islam as a barbaric religion and especially on harsh on the women. ( which really is painful)I have always known Islam as a religion of love compassion , forgiveness etc.i want to know if these punishments are truly required and is there no forgiveness.(are we actually barbaric)?


  12. Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarokatu

    My Name is Muhammad Afian Musthofa
    I’m a Student from Indonesia

    People used to say that an underage marriage are not good based on medical statement and psychology condition. and this is also contrary to prophet Muhammad Shalallahu alaihi wassalam where he marry the 9th years old Aisyah alaihi salam and other sahabah who also marry the “under age women”.
    my question is :
    1. Why did Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala in the Qur’an allow the human being to get married right after they have their reproduction system active (baligh)?
    2. If suppose I agree that underage marriage is bad based on psychologi, health, and etc. then why did Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala allow the human being to have their reproduction system active before the age of 18 – 20 (age which is not consider as underage)?
    3. Is Allah made a mistake by letting the human being have their reproduction system active before they being considered to be prepare so that human should make and use their own law and ideology to limit the age for getting married rather than using the Qur’an?
