Well, you and your sister Ajwa one time did appreciate one direction. If I'm not mistaken, that is. And please don't reply , because I wont see your answer as I won't be on for quite a few days on the iPad. If you do reply, however, to quench your fight-hungry stomach, do so, but don't expect a reply. BTW, don't take my joke seriously.
Khadija n aysha i ment to capitalize the word "fight" reguarding amns (not his dad) 2nd comment.and ayesha what are u thinking.......WEST , MUSICIONS and CRUSHES?????You dont know anything about me!!!!i think its rude of u but anyway im sorry if u took the "F-I-G-H-T" buissness seriously.
Gul Noor, please, this is not a childish fight. This is a discussion, okay? Don't spread wrong assumptions. And, Uncle, thank you for guiding me, as you said, that you can't make me BELIEVE in it unless I believe in it by my own judgements. This was a good discussion:)
Gul Noor, what's your problem? You call an intellectual discussion a FIGHT. I mean, do you Love to fight , or what? It's just a good discussion(which is WAYY better than the discussions you have of the West and musicians and crushes, and whatever) . Anyways, it's a good mind-working discussion between my twin sister Khadijah and Mubasher Uncle.
Thank you, Uncle, for calling me kind. Amn looks adorable in the picture.
Aoa. uncle mubasher i wanna say that i have read in other islamic books about drawing any type of human being because when it will be akirah allah will order us go give our life[i mean our rooh] to what we draw.[ i read that]
Gul Noor, It's not a 'fight', it's a group discussion and again here's a link regarding 'drawing' in Islam:
Please do some research otherwise you'll keep spreading the wrong interpretation of Islam.
Thanks Ajwa. I'm not taking anybody's fault. Most parents don't admit their mistakes in front of children, however I am honest with my son and if I make a mistake I admit it. In this case, children are not to blame for what they learn through internet or TV, it's us adults who should educate them what's right and what's wrong.
Ayesha, you are very polite. Thanks. It's me, my wife & Amn in the profile picture.
Khadijah, judging by your understanding of Islam, I'm not surprised you don't know 'Javed Ahmad Ghamidi'. My job was to guide you to a Muslim scholar so you could understand Islam better, if you don't need his guidance, that's up to you. Like they say, 'You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink' :-) Secondly, Amn has NOT made 'Animal' drawings, if you read the title, it says 'Monsters' :-p And by the way, all the animated movies and cartoons you watch should also be haram then :-p
PS: 'Amn' means 'Peace'.
Thank you, sir, but I don't follow unknown people, I don't know who this man is, so I cannot blindly follow him. And, yes, Prophet(SAW) DID forbid us to draw drawings of animals, didn't you read the Hadith in which Hazrat Aisha(RA) gave him(SAW) a pillowcase of animals' drawings and he forbid her to make drawings of animals?And Prophet also forbid this because the angels do not come in the house in which there is a drawing, it;s not just because of idols, it's for a number of other reasons, sir. So, it looks like AMN has also made animals' drawings.By the way, what does the word"Amn"mean?
Ayesha, these days children learn all sorts of words from TV, movies or the net, unaware if those words are good or bad. It's not a child's fault, it is the parent's fault for not making children aware of it. So while you are welcome to criticize me or Amn's mother for that, it's not right to call him 'rude'.
Dear Khadija, I like it that you researched the topic. However, Azka's comment was specific to drawing 'eyes' and if you go by the hadiths, it's not the 'eyes', in fact drawing pictures of 'animals' altogether is not encouraged.
You have to first understand why the Holy Prophet's (PBUH) discouraged drawing during those times. It was because the non-believers used to make Idols and worship them. So essentially, drawing and making idols for the purpose of worship was discouraged during The Holy Prophet (PBUH)'s time because it was necessary to do so back in the old days. Islam has never stopped anyone to draw for learning purpose and in this case, all school kids make drawings to learn how to draw, which is not prohibited in Islam.
I would encourage you to read Dr. Javed Ahmad Ghamidi, a great Muslim scholar, who has explained this in his article:
Dear Mubasher Uncle, this is the Quranic proof of drawing eyes. Hazrat Ayesha (RA) narrated, "I stuffed for the Prophet a pillow decorated with pictures (of animals) which looked like a Namruqa (i.e. a small cushion). He came and stood among the people with excitement apparent on his face. I said, "O Allah's Apostle! What is wrong?" He said, "What is this pillow?" I said, "I have prepared this pillow for you, so that you may recline on it." He said, "Don't you know that angels do not enter a house wherein there are pictures; and whoever makes a picture will be punished on the Day of Resurrection and will be asked to give life to (what he has created)?" Also Saeed bin Abul Hasan narrated, "While I was with Ibn 'Abbas a man came and said, "O father of 'Abbas! My sustenance is from my manual profession and I make these pictures." Ibn 'Abbas said, "I will tell you only what I heard from Allah's Apostle . I heard him saying, 'Whoever makes a picture will be punished by Allah till he puts life in it, and he will never be able to put life in it.' " Hearing this, that man heaved a sigh and his face turned pale. Ibn 'Abbas said to him, "What a pity! If you insist on making pictures I advise you to make pictures of trees and any other unanimated objects." Also, Abu Talha narrated, "I heard Allah's Apostle saying; "Angels (of Mercy) do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or a picture of a living creature (a human being or an animal)." A hadith of Tirmidhi also says, "On the Day of Resurrection a neck will stretch forth from Hell; it will have two eyes to see, two ears to hear, and a tongue to speak. It will say, "I have been appointed to take care of three types of people: every arrogant tyrant, every person who called on some deity other than Allaah (swt) and those who made pictures". Please consider these Ahadith and tell me what you think, Mubasher Uncle.
Shumaim beta, I understand your concern. Amn & I will have a friendly chat about it.
Ayesha beta, again, there's nothing about drawing eyes in the whole of Quran. Please don't 'think' things; read the Quran with translation and believe what is written in the Quran only.
Azka, people have many beliefs that they associate with Islam just to make it sound right. This is a wrong practice and we shouldn't do that. We should read the Quran, understand it's translation and only believe what we see written in the Quran. There is no such ayat in Quran that forbids drawing eyes so we shouldn't be giving wrong information to others. Ammar bin Ali Al-Mawsili was a renowned Muslim Opthomologist (Eye Doctor) who wrote a whole encyclopedia about eyes along with their drawings in the 10th century. Such knowledge would not have been possible if Islam forbade drawings. If drawing eyes was forbidden in Islam, why would they have drawings of eyes in Medical books being taught in all the Islamic countries including Saudi Arabia and Pakistan? Allah has given us the ability to explore and to be creative and drawing is part of that learning.
