Our Lord! You truly know all that we may hide in our hearts as well as all that we bring into the open, for nothing whatsoever, be it on earth or in heaven, remains hidden from Allah. {Quran, 14:38}


Colors Submit

Allah gave each of them a gift before bedtime, the growing loves of my life. Praises belong to Allah. An enormous perfect rainbow bright and vivid! Glittery strong at the bottom staring at my family and seeming to glide right into the tree-tops. It must have been complete, though our eyes did not witness it. As it rained while sunny bright, we noticed its shadow before it vanished first. All Glory belongs to GOD/Subhan'Allah!! I had never seen one so huge in my life, and the shadow..well it was like a faded twin! Although we didn't see it form, we saw the colors get deeper and more shiny rich. My husband went out in the rain to click a picture of it before it was to die away. Thinking about it now though, it had a quick life. A life that worshipped Allah. Sounds silly to some, but I swear by everything in me it's true. This rainbow's lifespan was at least 8 minutes, just up there in the sky worshipping our Creator, its Creator. Shy and beautiful at first, radiant and confident for the next few moments, and ending its existance modestly and warm. All I kept thinking, was why did Allah choose two to appear in so much magnitude and grace before our eyes? Humbling no doubt. Subhan'Allah. The kids can't wait to slide down rainbows in Jannah/Paradise. (God-willing, InshaAllah). What God Wills, the colors of Felicity are far more attractive and not anything we even have the ability to preceive. This rainbow was more proof against those who fail to reflect. Although perhaps it was also alive to give people hope in Allah's Mercy and Grace.
"Have they not observed things that Allah has created, (how) their shadows incline to the right and to the left, making prostration unto Allah, and they are lowly?"
{Quran, 16:48}

Tell me, what is your view about a born Muslim woman marrying a non-Muslim. Should she have the right to do that?

a woman who is Muslim needs is not allowed in Islam to marry a non-Muslim man. It is for her protection too. A Muslim man who practices his relgion is the leader of the family and looks at marriage as a responsibility infront of Allah. In Islamic Law it is the man that passes on his name and religion to the children. He is allowed to marry women who are Christians, or Jews, referred to as 'People of the Book' (so long as they believe in Allah. But a Muslim woman who marries a non-Muslim man is not permissible as the Islamic identity and faith of children and even of the woman is compromised or even eliminated. We have to take the wisdom of Quran and apply it. We do not make the rules, Allah'[s Wisdom and Mercy knows what is best for humanity, and it is the duty upon everyone on the face of this earth to please Allah by obeying His Guideance, and by floowing the example of our great Prophets (peace be upon them). Please email me privately and I will refer you to specific Fatwa (Islamic Rulings & Information). It is not a matter of opinion, it is a matter of what needs to be followed to attain success & happiness in this life and in the hereafter.
