The recent happenings indicate, the people who chase money are the worst affected. In the past, there was oasis in this desert created by practicing muslims in these areas.

Here, our ulema were quoting the lives of these practicing muslims in the west. I would like to hear from these muslim brothers about their life and lives of people around them who are living in concrete jungles.

What makes you believe being a member of this forum makes a person pious?

Can our brother @AbuZayd take this project. I am sure it will be beneficial for members here who can't read urdu.

I said most of the members here are in general pious. I mean, many pious brothers/sisters participate in discussion here.

I have experienced munafiqs also participate in islamic forums hiding their identity.

That’s what I’m asking how do you know a person is pious. Sorry don’t mean to be rude. Especially online. If a person is good at debating or discussing matters related to Islam online or good at writing, does that make them pious?

Even if a member has bitter differences with me, I won't doubt about his piety.

I think he said that to ensure he isn't offending the members living in the west and that his points are not an attack on anyone.

He can't know members are pious and he also can't know the members are not pious. Shouldn't pull him up on that statement. It's just a better way to think with Husn ad-dhann even if it applies to no one.

You can never judge a person online. The smartest of people have been scammed and catfished online. You have to know someone on a personal level to be able to know the reality of a person.

Online I can pretend to be a doctor or a male mufti. Copy and paste stuff. State piety in different ways. I could fool hundreds. People fool people online and offline all the time. In looks, wealth, health, piety. The list can go on. There’s no way of differentiating between fake and genuine. You can never know.

That’s why I find it odd that you believe most members here pious. I’m not disrespecting any members here you may all be pious but I would never call anyone pious. I think it’s a very sacred word to use. I believe only Allah would truly know the true piety of a person.

Sadly I would say I’m not at a place where I do enough. I would like to do more than what I already do. Don’t think I repent enough, pray enough, help others enough. I don’t think anything I do is enough in any aspects of my life. I may think I’m a great person but I could be sinning in many ways knowingly and unknowingly.

I wouldn’t like to say I’m either pious or sinful. I do my best and the rest lies in the hope in Allahs forgiveness and mercy.

You don’t know how I live what I do what I don’t do. I could be committing the worse sin ever and your calling me pious. Sorry I think I’ve distracted you from the purpose of this thread.

A person in Saudi has the freedom to practise Islam. Btw This is just an example yet many there crave for cinemas casinos and a western lifestyle. I’ve actually seen videos of these places existing. Also the first bar opening. Anyway you know the gist of what I’m saying.

In the western world we see these things available to us. It’s no big deal. It’s not something we crave to have or feel the need to be a part of our society.

I remember one of my aunts visiting India it was her very first visit and she was very excited. First thing she said in return was the youngsters play cricket all day they don’t work when they hear the azam they stop playing in respect once the Arab finishes they continue with the game. She found it strange. This is just an example btw

What I’m trying to say is no matter where in the world you are we all have access and freedom to have our one to one with Allah. It’s not an English,American,German, Pakistani or an Indian thing.

I believe our forefathers practised a lot of things that weren’t islamic. The benefit of being in a western country not only gave them an education but they advanced in the learning in Islam because they entered an unknown surrounding with alien language customs and behaviours. The only thing they could relate to and through was the masjid. In fact it was this that taught them differences in Islam and customs and traditions. This benefitted our generation and the further generations because many Hindu traditions and customs are alien to us. Alhamdulillah

Sorry if I’ve been off topic

I have witnessed one or two local children watching movies inside masjid e nabavi.
Also......
2 days nafl fasting of Aashura, the masjid is full with locals at iftaar. Dastarkhwan is spread in whole area of masjid. Many Brothers are regular in fasting on monday and thursday and 13,14,15th.

I learnt that few abdaals always stay in haramain.

What should I take.....

Maulana Ilyas RA was passing near a cinema theater. Some one said, "all those young men standing in Que for movie are muslims".
Maualana Ilyas RA said, when a masjid is attacked by enemies, the same young men risk their lives and protect the masjid.
