Greetings Ismael,
Welcome back.

Are we not all of us (on this forum at least) seeking after God?
You see, I don't think we are that different. Smile

Hi caringheart,

thank you for the welcome

Some are and some are not.
most are here as missionaries trying to Bible thump instead of here to learn.

or Qur'an thump?
I have a much more positive attitude.  I think we are here because we are all seeking to follow God.
I am here because I want us to understand each other.

Salaam,
CH

You're welcome for the welcome Smile ...  happy to know you made it safely there and back.  You were away a long time.

Bismillah,
Assalamualaikum Hasan and Nothing,

I found it a bit odd in your posts, if you don't mind, why do you refuse gifts?

My Shaykh insists one to take gifts and thank people much for the same. He rests this practice on the fact that 'one who does not thank people has not thanked Allah

A gift is only to be given to those in needs, up to this moment I am not in need, alhamdulillah.
If you, Nausheen, you were a minister with portfolio and a bussinessman came to you with a gift, you know with certainty that that is not a gift. On the opposite side if you are a business woman giving a gift to a politician than you know than it is not a gift either. It is a well known practice to smoothen the bumpy road, and bypassing them in the queue.

But there is another one different. Last week I picked my daughter from school and I asked her what she learned that day? and she said "Islamic Art". And she pulled a board from her bag with the word Allah on it, and she said "I made this for you". If I were to give that piece to anyone no one would take it, it is a worthless piece for anyone. I hug her and I hug the board, and it is on the wall now. See the difference?

I am sorry to disagree with the Sheikh, my experience and my observation tell me it is a bribe.

Was salaamu alaikum.

Assalamo Alaik nothing,

Jazak Allahu Khairun brother. That's very educational and food for thought. You make perfect sense.

Salam,
I always thought that giving gifts was a good things, it increases love. I still do, I do believe it is a good thing and in Islam we are encouraged to do good.
Here is website or two that I found about gift giving:

Greetings Ismail,

Well then you see, we are not different. Smile
If I commit a sin I too get on my knees and ask for God's forgiveness,
but more importantly, I repent.
Out of my great Love for Him, because of His great Love for me, I turn away and do not repeat my sin, and I am only able to do that with the Grace of God which I received through Yahshua.

Salaam and blessings to you,
Caringheart
Let us seek Truth together
Blessed be God forever

Hi sister Caringheart,
Why did you refrain from the original sin storey?
Were you born in sin as the Bible says or would you be born innocent as the Quraan says?
