    Sister mary, Peace be with you,

    Sorry i did not reply before. My advise to you with regards to dealing with those who say hurtful things is the following:

    We know there are users here who do not regard Islam to be the word of God. They regard all religions to be ridiculous, and attack us more because we are more adherent and less conformist in the sense we can throw out scripture. They have in general a good knowledge of Islam, but not a good understanding of it. Essentially, some of them are pretty much convinced they follow the truth, they are doing the right thing, and that Islam is man made and a parasite and therefore will ridicule it.

    I read the hurtful comments they made at you, encouraging you to go clubbing and do harram acts. Even if you ridicule religion, no-one has a right to say something so insensitive, purposefully. I welcome any criticism of Islam, welcome their right to debate it, criticize it, have opinions on it but not but not hate speech i.e telling a muslim woman to go and fornicate.

    Some of the users i must note, and not all. Many of them just see a rational irregularity with Islam, and have the right to debate on that. Some, purely use hateful provocative language.

    Let your pain convert to what i have already seen you do - reflect on the Quran, on the universe, and gain knowledge. Continue doing this.

    Ahmad Deedat you know, was hackled and mocked by missionaries so much, he promised himself he would rely to every single attack they had using rationality, wisdom, logic and truth.

    The Quran gives us advise on how to deal with such people:

    QURAN: "And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace"

    Don't let it get to you.
    PRSOM. MashaAllah great advice. :yy:

    Sigs are signatures. So you go onto Customise my TSR > Change my signature. Then you can add it into there when we decide on one pic so we all have the same. Hope that makes sense.

    Alhumdulillah I've not been too bad. How about you?

    JazakAllah Khair for this Tpos

    Brilliant, he outlines some very important points and makes some excellent comments on the Persian, Abbasid and Ottoman empires.
    I've just listened to it and it was quite interesting however unless I missed it he didn't cover what "the right hand" means in the ayah. I would've liked that to be discussed in more detail and then for that to form the basis of the rest of the talk.

    Have you seen Muhammad Asad's commentary of this? He kind of outlines everything there is to say about this.

    You can read his commentary here. It explains the difference of opinion between the Sahabah. You have to look at all of the footnotes on each verse but here are two:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    'or those whom their right hands possess' (aw ma malakat aymanuhum). Most of the commentators assume unquestioningly that this relates to female slaves and that the particle aw ('or') denotes a permissible alternative. This conventional interpretation is, in my opinion, inadmissible inasmuch as it is based on the assumption that sexual intercourse with one's female slave is permitted without marriage: an assumption which is contradicted by the Qur'an itself (see 4:3, 24, 25 and 24:32, with this corresponding notes). Not is this the only objection to the above-mentioned interpretation. Since the Qur'an applies the term 'believers' to men and women alike, and since the term azwaj ('spouses'), too, denotes both the male and the female partners in marriage, there is no reason for attributing to the phrase ma malakat aymanuhum the meaning of 'their females slaves'; and since, on the other hand, it is out of the question that female and males slaves could have been referred to here, it is obvious that this phrase does not relate to slaves at all, but has the same meaning as in 4:24 - namely, 'those whom they rightfully possess through wedlock' (see note 26 on 4:24) - with the significant difference that in the present context this expression relates to both husbands and waves, who 'rightfully possess' one another by virtue of marriage. On the basis of this interpretation, the particle aw which precedes this clause does not denote an alternative ('or') but is, rather, in the nature of an explanatory amplification more or less analogous to the phrase 'in other words' or 'that is', thus giving to the whole sentence the meaning,.... save with their spouses - that is, those whom they rightfully possess[through wedlock).. ', etc. (Cf. a similar construction 25:62 - 'for him who has the ill to take thought - that is [lit., 'or'], has the will to be grateful'.)


    Note 26 on 4.24:


    The term muhsanah signifies literally 'a woman who is fortified [against unchastity ', and carries three senses: (1) 'a married woman', (2) 'a chaste woman', and (3) 'a free woman'. According to almost all authorities, al-muhsanat denotes in the above context 'married women'. As for the expression ma malakat aymanukum ('those whom your right hands possess'. i.e., 'those whom you rightfully possess'), it is often taken to mean female slaves captured in a war in God's cause (see in this connection 8:67, and the corresponding note). The commentators who choose this meaning hold that such slave-girls can be taken in marriage irrespective of whether they have husbands in the country of origin or not. However, quite apart from the fundamental differences of opinion, even among the Companions of the Prophet, regarding the legality of such a marriage, some of the most outstanding commentators hold the view that ma malakat aymanukum denotes here 'women whom you rightfully possess through wedlock'; thus Razi in his commentary on this verse,and Tabari in one his alternative explanations (going back to Abd Allah ibn 'Abbas, Mujahid, and others). Razi, in particular, points out that the reference to 'all married women' (al-muhsanat min an-nisa'), coming as it does after the enumeration of prohibited degrees of relationship, is meant to stress the prohibition of sexual relations with any woman other than one's lawful wife.
