Paki! June 21, 2008Posted by Muhajirah in General, Random Musings.
The other day I was walking home when someone called me a paki and continued to shout it as I walked down the street.
The irony of the incident was that the one shouting paki was not only one herself but probably more ‘paki-fied’ than me.
On a serious note I think (Muslim) kids these days are well messed up. They’ve got no manners or anything. I think some parents really need to get their acts together, cos in the cases I have seen, kids lack the characteristics that are befitting of a muslim cos either (a) they get it from their parents (b) parents don’t make an effort to ensure that their children are good mannered or (c) parents don’t have control over their kids or discipline them appropriately when they act like prats.
When I see a Muslim on the street walking as tho he’s 50 cent (or whoever) not showing an ounce of humility and talking like a wannabe gansta I feel like going up to him and giving him a good smack. These guys have left the best of creation as thier role model opting istead for some kaffir nobody…
Urgh, it’s so annoying to see Muslims acting like idiots!
Fiqh books June 14, 2008Posted by Muhajirah in General.
I’m looking for a good book on fiqh, something not too simple, (don’t wanna get bored!), but at the same time it can’t be too detailed (don’t wanna get confused!). Insha’Allah i plan on doing some proper studying (not just a quick read) so I want to buy the best book out there (within a reasonable price range of course)
So far I’ve come across:
1. Fiqh us-Sunnah by Sayyid Sabbiq.
I downloaded pdf version (from here) but not sure if it’s a full version. From what I’ve read so far it looks good. The full set is available in the library so I’m going to check it out before I make my mind on whether it’s the one to get. Each volume costs around £12-£15, but I saw it on Maktabah for £30 (I think it’s the full set!) which seems pretty good, considering its 5 volumes. They’re out of stock though. I’ve seen it at other places for around £60 which is way too expensive! Another (silly) reason i’m inclined to buy it is cos it looks nice =)
2. A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence by Sh. Salih al-Fawzan
Also managed to get hold of a pdf version of this (vol 1 and vol 2). I’ve had a quick read through a few chapters from volume one and I like it. It’s something that if I had a hard copy I could sit down and read properly. Costs around £30 for the set.
3. Fiqh Made Easy by Dr Salih al Sadlan.
Which I don’t know much about except it was recommended by a friend.
So because I am very indecisive, if anybody could give me their recommendations from the three, or any other book, it would be much appreciated.
