November 01, 2023, 03:44:32 pm Zainab_M: Allahhuma ameen .. ameen.
November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.

Salam and peace.  If you are invited to the house of a Muslim for a meal, and if that person also visits the Masjid for prayers, is it wrong to ask them if the food is Halal at their place?   The man who calls himself a ďsheikhĒ was lecturing away like mr. know-all and said that a person who is Muslim and visiting the Mosque, we should trust each other and not ask about the food in their home.  Does this come from hadith?  Please give your opinion.

Walaykum As Salam and peace to you.   Yep, from hadith, which explains the unreasonable nature of the concept.  Here’s the hadith:  "It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When any one of you enters upon his Muslim brother and he offers him food, let him eat from his food and not ask about it. And if he offers him something to drink, let him drink what he offers and not ask about it.”  (Collection of Ahmad, 8933. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 62.

There is nothing wrong in asking anything from any one provided the question is based on good intentions and for a significant reason.  I agree that we should trust each other which is a wide spectrum gesture of etiquette.  Nonetheless, there may be times when you feel you need further confirmations on certain issues even if the person concerned is a Muslim and visits the Masjid.  After all, everyone who visits the Masjid isn’t necessarily doing everything the Halal way.   There are exceptions.  Some may visit the masjid yet on occasions they may overlook the Halal aspect of a meal and eat non-Halal.  These things happen.

Wa'Salam.   Not just that, but also there are “Muslims” who visit the Masjid yet they are not free from committing zina and consuming alcohol.  If any one invites you to their home for a meal, and you don’t know them too well, you certainly have the right to ask and confirm the status of the food.

JazekAllah khair. This is what I thought as well.  But many of our teachers have too high an opinion of the fake hadith school and of themselves which makes it quite pointless talking to them. They have Q&A sessions after lecture presentation, but no discussions are welcomed nor allowed on the Sheikhís answers to the questions of the audience.  Whatever nonsense he says in his response, you have to accept.    Otherwise they gaslight you making you feel guilty by quoting all kinds of absurd and false ahadith.

Donít recall his name. I donít attend these lectures too often as many of them mention a lot of things I find illogical and they are all the time straying outside the Qur'an. This sheikh as I know is a Muslim from Guyana but donít know his name.

If  he is from Guyana then he may have his own reasons but he shouldn’t generalize.  And of course, Guyana Muslims are one of the staunchest Hadithists.   What I mean is, Guyana is a non-Muslim country.  Muslims are a minority making up 7% of its population which is approximately 60,000 Muslims.   Total of those Guyanese Muslims who have immigrated to North America would be just a few thousands.  In most North American Masjids run by Guyanese Muslims, majority of visitors are also Guyanese Muslims.  It’s a small community and they are all known to each other .. at least formally ..  well enough to be assured about their Islamic lifestyle.  But if you are from a big Muslim country with a huge population like Egypt or Iran or Pakistan or Turkiye, then that compact community atmosphere isn’t there.  The number of visitors at the Masjid are a lot more.  In this case, you might be invited for a meal to the house of a friend’s friend for instance.  You may not know the person that well, you presume they eat Halal but you want to be assured.  In all such cases you are definitely entitled to confirm if the food is Halal.
