Islamic Fitness & Self-Improvement thread Anonymous 05/01/2020 (Fri) 04:24:50 ID: 7a6f42 No.6 [Reply]
The strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. (Sahih Muslim 2664) It is encouraged by the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to exercise, maintain physical health and a strong body. The Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions (may Allah be pleased with them) were skilled in the arts of running and fighting, and they were extremely physically tough. Therefore this thread is intended to exchange tips, experiences and information regarding the topics of health, diet, fitness and exercise.
1 post and 5 images omitted.
Are there any self-improvement guides that are strictly from Islamic sources? Especially ones that are based on the Quran and Ahadith. It should be the way to go, since Allah did say in the Quran : >And whoever desires other than Islam as their Deen (way of life) - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. [3:85]
>>37 I don't believe it's appropriate to look for diet and exercise advice in the Qur'an. In the Sunnah however we find multiple stories of the Prophet's (peace and blessings be upon him) great physical strength as well as some of his advice. Narrated 'Ali (r): “When he (s) walked, because of the speed and force of the legs, it seemed as if he was descending from a high place.” (Tirmidhi) Narrated Abu Huraira (r), “I did not see anyone walk faster than him (s), as is the earth folded for him. A few moments ago he would be here, and then there. We found it difficult to keep pace when we walked with him and he walked at his normal pace.” (Tirmidhi) Narrated Hazrat Ibn Umar (r): The Prophet (s) said ”Teach your children swimming, archery and horse riding”. So these kinds of sports are the ones he (s) recommended to the Ummah, meaning they are the best.
>>12 problem with the plastic water thing is that every store sells water in plastic bottles, nothing else. Do I just have to boil the water and collect the vapor in a glass bottle or something?
>>177 I think some brands have glass bottles too. Check your local store.
>>178 I did, I checked every store that was less than an hour away from me, they all sell water in plastic bottles. I even asked people in the stores and they couldnt find any Im just thinking of distilling the water and containing it in a glass bottle or buying it (water in non-plastic containers, preferably glass) online (havent checked online so maybe theres stuff there)

Salam, hermanos. Anonymous 11/02/2020 (Mon) 01:17:12 ID: 55a854 No.152 [Reply]
I am a Mexican who have a direct Muslim ancestry and I want some advice. For you see, my parents emigrated here from Iraq and settled in the south. My whole life was very traditional but there is a predicament. For some odd reasons, my parents choce to raise me and my sister as local Roman Catholics. This was unbeknownst to me for my whole life up until my adulthood. They said they wanted us to have a normal life, yet I always felt like I didn't belong. Truth is, my faith is with God but I want to know more about Allah. I've been studying Iraqui Arabic but I'm not sure if I should. My parents, specially my father, says he won't stop me yet he says he expects me to "do the right thing". What can I do? Please, I need some help from native brothers.
>>152 What you should do to learn about Allah (who is God btw) is learn Classical Arabic/Modern Standard Arabic, the language of the Qur'an. Knowing an Arabic dialect won't get you very far. That being said, there are heaps of Information on Islam in English and Spanish already available, praise be to Allah. So you don't really need to learn Arabic to learn the basics of Islam.
>>152 Wa alaykom asalam brother Jesus(pbuh) never referred to God with "God" because that's an english word. Jesus spoke aramaic, a semitic middle eastern language like arabic. https://www.atour.com/cgi-bin/dictionary.cgi?string=god&Search_Field=Meaning >What can I do? Research and contemplate wither Islam is the truth. Get a copy of the Qur'an in the language you prefer, read it and contemplate wither it what it claims to be. Ask Allah for help, Allah will help you if you are truly trying to find the truth. I don't know if this would help but take a look at this video https://youtu.be/7CR0YGU9XJk
>>152 If there is a masjid nearby where you live I would strongly recommend visiting it and asking any questions you may have. May Allah strengthen you and keep you firmly on the right path.
>>169 Amen.

Any reverts here? I am very interested in Islam and can see myself likely reverting within the near future. For those of you who did revert, how did you find a good mosque, and were they accepting of newcomers? I am a somewhat introverted person, so I am mainly worried that I would feel awkward in such an environment even though I do have a genuine interest. Thanks
come to 8/islam/
>>13 I hope you find the help you need. >>14 That site barely functions, if anything 8/islam/ should come here.
>>15 The BO from 8/islam/ made a board over at 9chan, same community still.
>>15 I'm running an /islam/ board over at 8chan.moe if y'all are intrested. Barakallahum feek.
>>13 To (finally) answer this question: I had the same worries as you after converting. When I finally did bring myself to go to the mosque I found it to be the most welcoming place I ever went to. All the Muslims are brothers who treat each other softly and kindly. And to a non-Muslim who is interested in Islam they will be even friendlier. It would be shocking if there were a mosque that didn't accept newcomers. I hope you are well on your journey, OP, may Allah strengthen you and all of us.

Qur’an and Context Anonymous 08/31/2020 (Mon) 05:10:10 ID: aa1e69 No.103 [Reply]
I’m not a Muslim, but I have been exploring Islam over the last few months with another non-Muslim friend of mine, and on the topic of the Qur’an, my friend has said that he finds it hard to believe that something like the Qur’an was intended to be a scripture of universal application given the fact that what happens is so contextually linked and that you basically need to read tafsir half the time to understand what a certain verse is actually in reference too (for example with “kill them where you find them...”). Basically his criticism is that you’d expect it to have more clarity and not so tightly tied into context to such an extent that you can’t even tell half the time they’re talking about something that happened after Mecca was retaken, or whether this happened after the battle of Badr, etc. I find this very strange about the Qur’an as well, and am curious why it is like this, and how it can be properly understood by many Muslims who have no access to the tafsir. I’m not here to really argue against the Qur’an, I’m mainly curious to here an explanation for this
>>103 Alhamdulillah. You've asked a very good question. May Allah grant you and your friend guidance and insight into our religion. The Qur'an is indeed a universal message for all of mankind until the Day of Judgment. That is why Allah has made its message clear and easy to understand. Allah says: > And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? [al-Qamar 17] >(...) And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims. [an-Nahl 89] Still, we find that some parts of the Qur'an can be more difficult to grasp, such as when the Qur'an sometimes addresses Muhammad ﷺ or his companions directly, regarding certain historical events. This however does not mean that the message is limited only to them, rather Allah makes use of even these situations to grant lessons to all of humanity. Scholars have written different explanations (tafseer) of the Qur'an over time. Of course, this begs the question, why do we need Tafseer if the Qur'an is already supposed to be clear and understandable? Indeed Tafseer is necessary to fully understand the meanings of the Qur'an. Not everyone can be a scholar - the average reader who doesn't know the context of certain verses or what exactly they refer to, or may not even know the Arabic language, will have a hard time benefitting from it in the same way as somebody who is well versed in these matters. Iyaas ibn Muawiyah said: "The example of a people who recite the Quran and do not know its explanation is like a group of people who have a written message from their king that comes to them during the night, and they do not have a lamp. Therefore they do not know what is in the message.The example of one who knows tafseer is like a person who comes to them with a lamp and reads to them what is in the message." The Qur'an itself was not brought as a standalone message, but rather it was given to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ who recited it to the people around him bit by bit. When they had a question concerning the faith, they would come and ask him directly, and he would explain it to them. Today we find these explanations within the Ahadith which have been preserved. The Ahadith of the Prophet ﷺ (Sunnah) are indeed the best Tafseer of the Qur'an, as the Prophet ﷺ had the greatest amount of knowledge regarding the message of the Qur'an among all men. Most works of tafseer written by scholars are therefore based upon the Ahadith from the Prophet ﷺ and his companions. Hence the Qur'an stresses the importance of following God and His Messenger, and therefore Muslims follow both the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

>>104 Thank you for the answer, anon. That seems to make a lot of sense to me. You are right that the Qur'an says to follow the example of the Prophet. I had not thought of that. I don't mean to totally divert the topic of the thread of pepper you with questions that might be better for the QTDDTOT, but since you seem knowledgeable, I do have one more question, less about the Qur'an itself, and more about Jesus as he is discussed in the Qur'an. In particular this verse: (4:157) >That they said (in boast), "We killed the Messiah Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah'; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Why would Allah do this, and leave the followers of Jesus unsure of what had really happened to him? Did they see him crucified but think that he died? It is quite strange to me that God would leave them in the dark until Muhammad's prophethood nearly 600 years later while all of these apparent innovations gradually crept in like the Trinity, or is the onus of them going astray totally on those who became Christians?

Halal meat explanation Anonymous 08/04/2020 (Tue) 02:43:17 ID: 943575 No.81 [Reply]
So why do Muslims have to slaughter animals in a particular way? What's the difference in meat that has been instantly slaughtered?
We are like jews, meat is not clean if not cut neck. plus it's more merciful.
>>81 Since the life of every animal belongs to God, it must be that the slaughter be done in His name.
>>82 >plus it's more merciful Its the opposite of that.
Edited last time by AbdalAziz on 08/04/2020 (Tue) 13:08:24.
>>84 Nope. https://hmacanada.org/german-study-on-stunning/ >1. The first three seconds from the time of Islamic slaughter as recorded on the EEG did not show any change from the graph before slaughter, thus indicating that the animal did not feel any pain during or immediately after the incision. >2. For the following 3 seconds, the EEG recorded a condition of deep sleep – unconsciousness. This is due to a large quantity of blood gushing out from the body. >3. After the above mentioned 6 seconds, the EEG recorded zero level, showing no feeling of pain at all. >4. As the brain message (EEG) dropped to zero level, the heart was still pounding and the body convulsing vigorously (a reflex action of the spinal cord) driving maximum blood from the body: resulting in hygienic meat for the consumer. And watch your language when you post here, please.
