So I have a question for anyone who feels like answering. Is there such a thing as loving your family too much? Like as Muslims the idea is to not worship anything but Allah. Sometimes I feel like it's hard to love Allah with the greatest capacity possible and without question. However, when I think of my baby daughter..I love her without question. So I guess to reiterate is there a thing of loving your family too much?
no haha. The idea of loving Allah and his messenger more than anything, in your context, is Allah giving you the blessing of a child who you love so much, and his messenger guiding you towards Him. The point is to be grateful to Allah for everything we have: money, health, children. That is why we say we love God and his messenger the most. At least in my understanding!
So I have some relatives that are pro Trump. This honestly ruined my opinion of them as I looked up to them a lot. Theyre well educated with lucrative careers so I just cant understand. I really want to know what those 7% of Muslim voters that are voting for Trump are thinking.
Hey Rusty, sorry I'm like almost half a year late on this. I think I will give them a call. Since the last time I posted here, a lot of things have changed, but depression is something I don't think I will ever escape. It will oscillate, fluctuate, but it is a shadow that I can never walk away from.
I'm a convert and my husband isn't Muslim, but he agrees that we will raise them with a Muslim background and that I will practice with them and bring them to the mosque. But ultimately they will decide if they want to continue to practice.
Also on an unrelated note:
I'm really sad that I haven't been able to fast this past Ramadan as well as this upcoming one. It makes me feel very disconnected.
Yup. Last ramadhan I was pregnant, and this ramadhan I'm breastfeeding. I'm definitely gonna try to go to some of the taraweeh prayers. I just get nervous with all this anti muslim rhetoric going on lately (in US) and I live in a city.
