asalamualaikum everyone
i was listening to an islamic lecture in Somali with my mother once and the shekh said that the muslim youth of today aren't asking questions about drugs, smoking, sex excetra. they are asking questions like: Is there a god if so prove it?  How do u know the quran is the truely allah's words? 

do you think this is true?  Are muslim youth really thinking like this?

Bismillah

Wa'alaikumu salaam Amina 16,

Muslim youth asks all sorts of questions in the process of seeking knowledge. Perhaps some of the very fundamental aspects of faith are not as clear as general position on drugs and smoking. It should not be a problem for the Sheikhs to answer questions on Allah and the Qur'an. After all, that's their specialisation.

The scholars should, indeed, spend more time in explaining the true meaning of the declaration of faith - the Shahada beofore jabbering on undesireability of music or importance of keeping the beard. And the youth should also begin from the basics to strengthen their spiritual and intellectual foundation.

Its normal for children to question the establishment.  This means religion too.  In the west, I've seen teenagers bounce from ideology to ideology until they find out who they are and which one best suits them.  I was one of those.

The best thing to do is practice patience, encourage them to read and study and to stick to the basics.

MOCKBA is correct.  Instead of addressing music and beards, they should be starting with Muhammed, the Quran and Allah.

its surprising for me to hear this because i have been thought about islam ever since i was born.  Thats why its kind of weird for me to hear people my age are asking such questions.

I recently just started reading about the life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbup) and the translation of Quran. I must say that, its most interesting and better than reading unknowlegdeable books. I wasnt raised in an "islamic environment".

Alsalam alikom w rahmato Allah w barakato..

I think that any question in Islam is acceptable and I myself respect the person who asks sooo much because he is much better than who blindly follows.

As Mockba said,seeking knowledge is a great deed and of course it brings honnour.

Alsalam alikom w rahmato Allah w barakato..

ALLAH's deen is truth and nothing but truth, there shouldn't even be a discussion about that.

Second part of ur question >>>>  Here is a true story, I saw a 18 year old kid with a baby and a 16 year old girl. I thought they were all brothers and sisters.... so i told the guy that ur brother is very cute, unfortunately it was his son annd we had a pleasant verbal exchange experience too

i dont think it is true that young muslims are doubting the existance of allah, but perhaps the shiekh has misunderstood they're questions to mean that they believe this. many young people find it hard to fully believe in and fear an abtract being therefore they ask questions to aid their understanding of Allah. it doesnt mean they do not believe Allah exists though!

and there is nothing wrong with asking questions it shows that you are interested in learning!

May Allah be wiv u....Ameen

firstly its very important for your friend to read about islam and understand its laws and regulatiosna and the reasons behind them. Allah is not asked us to keep away from something or provided is wiv info if it wasnt for our own sake. for example having sexual relatiosnships outside marriage is socially distructive. if you live in the west you see so many single parent families, wer the children have no role model and no stable family to teach them and guide them in life. therefore allowing sex outside marriage (even if 2 people truely love each ova) harms humanity and our society. if they love each ova that much they cud get married and create a stable safe enviroment to have sexual relations and children.

may allah be wiv them and guide them....Ameen

hope this helps!

I agree with U Suzy.Now husseinb05,have U personnaly ever thought of how wonderful d world wld be if every human follows Allah's commands?I know some people with myopic &shallow reasoning have answered"boring" to dat questn.But dat's just d way they chose to think.Meanwhile,need we waste  precious time&energy on what promiscuity has done to ds misled generation of sexual-misconducts?

Can't U even see&feel it all around you?The youths're losing focus& only d privileged ones that has God's consciousness're making it tru.Do U know d rate of marriage compared to divorce?It's not working cos they're not doing it right.The young generation're introduced to sex at d age they don't need it,all in d name of'educating them.They ask them to use protection rather than abstinence.Isn't that a license to promiscuity.Even if you refuse to accept Islamic rulings on fornication,is it morally right?I mean,this is a logical thing& any right thinking person wld agree that sex is worth waiting for.It is only naivety,ignorance&insecurity that makes some believe they need to have a sexual contact before being convinced of the partner's love,prior marriage.Whether,we choose 2 accept it or not,d truth is staring at us in d face.Even the consequencies of al ds r/ships has proved it's wrong.Where do U want to begin?Is it d numerous diseases contracted from unfaithful partners or a broken heart from such partner?I could really go on&on to talk about ds topic,but it's almost inexhaustible.Even d Christendom preaches decency&modesty.All other contradictory idealogies arose from human inventions&experiments.And that is why we need to read&learn in order not 2 b misguided.A lot of youths have fallen victims of 'Peer Pressure' al bcos dy were not prepared for d outside world& not have a mind of their own.May Allah help us my bro.There're just too many things some youths're negligent about,which ought not be.

The position of Islam on this issue is clear.There's no ambiguity in it.Those who have ears,let them hear.There is Judgement day& there is reward for good,likewise,punishment for wrong doings.May we be forgiven of our sins,commited privately or in d open.And may Allah accept all these little acts of even seeking our religious knowledge as worship& grant us Al-jannat.Cos Brother,I dnt even want 2 picture what hell'd be like.May Allah help us& strenghten us in faith.

Ameen!I hope this helps too!
