Am I Normal???​

Last Updated on Tuesday, 22 January 2019 15:48

We are all familiar with the terms ‘normal’ and ‘natural’. However, if asked to furnish a definition for normal and natural, how would we respond?

In the modern world, ‘normal’ is often defined as that which conforms to the norms of society and is deemed acceptable by society at large. However, it is obvious that this cannot be the yardstick by which we measure normality. If it were so, we would be forced to regard the behaviour of a cannibal tribe casually nibbling on their neighbours as ‘normal’ since their entire tribe and society accept this form of behaviour. Additionally, the yardstick of ‘normal’ would continue to sway and shift before the wind of society’s ever-changing whims and fancies, ideals and ideas. In a nutshell, this would not signify the true ‘normal’, but would rather represent the collective inclinations and tendencies of society at large.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

We have WhatsApp groups to inform sisters in our area of upcoming events, advertise home businesses, etc.

Recently, differing views are being posted on these groups with regards to women in masaajid, shiasm in South Africa, following a mazhab, haidh masaa-iI, etc.

Should we respond to these messages or should we remain silent and ignore them? If we should respond, how should this be done? Should we address the person privately or should we address them on the group?

Jazakallah

All praise due to Allah Ta‘ala alone, the Most Gracious and Most Merciful. May Allah Ta‘ala shower peace and salutations upon our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem.

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh.

I was born in a Christian family. I used to love going to church on Sundays and it was the only fun day, because it was the only day when I got to spend some time with my father. My father was the minister of the church and he was the only parent that I had around.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have recently developed an addiction to watching videos on YouTube. I know it’s wrong and most of the videos contain music as well as pictures of men which is zina of the eyes.

I know that if I continue watching, it is going to slowly strip away my modesty and further weaken my already weak imaan.

I feel very guilty after watching the videos and it disturbs be greatly. I have made istighfaar and tried to stop it, but due to my weakened state, I keep going back.

Please give me some advice as to what I could do to stop for good.

Jazakallah
