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.

Al-Bukhari (1985) and Muslim (1144) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say: “No one of you should fast on Friday, unless he fasts (a day) before it or after it.”


What is the purpose of this pointless rule/  Why can't I observe a nafl fast on Friday if I wish?

It’s just another illogical talk of a forged hadith.  If you want to observe a nafl fast on a Friday, go ahead by all means. 

The reason Hadithists give is picked from various other forged ahadith.  They say Friday is a day for Jumuah prayer at the masjid, a day for du’a, dhikr and ghusl, and listening to the khutbah.  So it is recommended not to fast on Friday so that one doesn’t get too tired and thus not be able to perform other Friday duties.  Of course it doesn’t make sense. Many people can easily observe a nafl fast and also go for Jumuah and do zikr on a Friday.   There;s nothing too difficult about that.  After all, we all do this in Ramadan, don’t we?  If someone finds it hard, then let them not do any nafl fast on Friday.  But it’s a personal decision.  The hadith rule is totally invalid. 

Hadithists keep propagating nafl fasts for Rajab and Shaban with great emphasis.  Yet they don’t realize that this can make one exhausted to observe the fard (obligatory) fasts of Ramadan.   At the same time, they are overly concerned about one Jumuah fast making us too tired.  A very contradictory argument.

According to hadithists it is makrooh to single out a Saturday for fasting. ‘Reason’ is supposed to be that Saturday is a special day for Jews (referring to Sabbath I guess) because it is the day when the Jews refrain from working and they rest. If a Muslim fasts on that day, the fast may keep them from working or being too active so they will resemble the Jews in not working on that day.  Complete nonsense.  No one is obligated to accept this.

I did as much research on this one as possible.  Didn't make any sense. Agree quite nonsense.
