  • Adopting kids is permissible in Islam. The purpose of bringing them up and taking care of them is indeed a blessed deed. This is more encouraged in the case of orphans.

    "Furthermore, al-Banna was heavily influenced by Sufism as a youth in Mahmudiyya. He attended weekly Hadra and was a member of the al-Hassafiyya Sufi order.

    Tariq Ramadan on Al-Banna

    "I have studied Hassan Al-Banna's ideas with great care and there is nothing in this heritage that I reject. His relation to God, his spirituality, his personality, as well as his critical reflections on law, politics, society and pluralism, testify for me to his qualities of heart and mind... His commitment also is a continuing reason for my respect and admiration."

    allah taufiq dega to dil saaf kar lenge. yeh allah ki sardardi hai meri nahi. mujhe to lagta nahi ki tumhaara dil saaf hai, Sufi hone kaa dam bharte ho. kaun se waale Sufi ho? Ghali Sufi (gain wala gali, gaaf wala nahi kabhi kaho gali de raha hai) ya Jalali sufi

    shhayad ke aajaye tunhaari samajh men baat
    read:"Throughout the 20th century, and at present, Sufi ideologues and mass movements (especially the Naqshbandiya) have been engaged in defensive—offensive jihad campaigns designed not only to expel real (or perceived) 'colonial powers', but also to create supra—national (regional) shari'a states, or even a frank Caliphate (i.e., a single unified global shari'a state). The restored Shi'ite theocracy in Iran, whose contemporary shari'a—based system of dhimmitude was drafted by a leading Sufi—Sultanhussein Tabandeh—provides a sobering example of what 'Sufi ecumenism' towards non—Muslims means in practice.

    Are not Mushrikeen nejus as per the Quran? what do you mean by arabic word nejus?
    Have you heard something like Nijaasat e ghaliza and Nijasat e khafifa? these belong to physical nejasat. there are many roohani nejasaten like, kufr, shirk, munafiqat etc. now tell me what kind of nejsat you attribute to Mushrikeen if not these? why they are not allowed in mekka medina. kuchh to wajah hogi. kiya chura lenge woh wahan se.

    Pseudo Rational,


    You are one sick man for sure. You need to clean your heart. Are you Non-Muslim? (Though, I never use these words to describe Christians, Jews, Hindus or Buddhists). I am merely trying to answer your post. Give me a straight answer and no beating around the bush, please.


    You keep harping at the same nonsense as on the first place you never tried to understand the real meaning of “uncleanliness of hearts. Simply put, be sincere in your dealings with your fellow humans.


    On the other hand, you keep on accusing and terrorizing people. Your loyal supporters cannot help you either as they are in the same boat as you are. It is quite obvious that they cannot even teach you anything.


    Like I said, go to temple, church, synagogue or any other place of prayers. You might be able to learn something. Hanging around “Tablighi Jamaat’ has done you a whole lot of harm.

    here is some portion from a great Sufi full of moral ethics:
    toeing the orthodox line, condemned the Hindus to the fire of hell, saying: ‘The unbelievers at the time of death will experience punishment. At that moment, they will profess belief (Islam) but it will not be reckoned to them as belief because it will not be faith in the Unseen… the faith of (an) unbeliever at death remains unacceptable.’ He asserted that ‘On the day of Resurrection when unbelievers will face punishment and affliction, they will embrace faith but faith will not benefit them… They will also go to Hell, despite the fact that they will go there as believers.’cxxiii In his khutbas (sermons), ......condemned the infidels as wicked, saying, ‘He (Allah) has created Paradise and Hell for believers and the infidels (respectively) in order to repay the wicked for what they have done.

    remove your misconception as soon as possible that i am dying for the respect from a zombie. you have written nothing valuable so that my friends start you praising. you are copy pasting and choking the pages here.
    you are the one who believes non-Muslims are nejus (napak in Urdu). Is it insult or respect of the non-Muslims including many gentlemen?

    By rational mohammed yunus - 2/20/2014 7:39:16 AM

  • Pseudo Rational,


    You wrote, you have gone crazy or eating your words back. what are moral ethics? Do you know some of them? yes they are brilliant. but what about you? Do they see you as brilliant?”


    Now, to satisfy your thirst, let me inform you that I am not in any means brilliant, so your friends who are avowed enemy of Islam are right. I am so worst off that their minds feel that none of what I write is worthy of reading. Well so much for their attitude.


    In any case, I raised a question about “Moral Ethics” is owing to your relentless assault on the religion of Islam which I follow. For Naseer Ahmed Saheb, it does not matter, but to me, it does. I do not respect those who insult other people’s religion. This is what I learned from Holy Quran which you are so busy insulting every single hour and every single day.


    Shame on you, Pseudo Rational.

  • Pseudo Rational,


    You hate Islam and everything about Islam. Why do you continue to say that your first name is “Mohammed”?


    You recall Sultan Ghaznavi. How about Hitler and Stalin? They were not Muslims. What are you trying to convey to us? There were many ruthless leaders belonging to all religions have committed mass murders.  


    I could care less about getting respect from those who constantly talk bad about their very own religion. At least I feel good about myself and my great religion of Islam. If you don’t then it is your problem. Just do not continue to spill your hatred to those who respect their religion. Why is this so difficult for you to comprehend?


    By the way, Mr. S. Jeelani, Secular Logic and Mr. Khalid Suhail should guide you about certain moral ethics. They are brilliant people and surely they should teach you some moral lessons. Think about it for change.

    Ghulam saheb addresses me as Rational. i address like Ghulam M, Ghulam M Saheb, Mr Ghulam M.
    Observer saheb addresses me as Rational, Dear Rational rarely any other. I do the same.
    Sultan Saheb addresses me as Rational Mohammed Yunus Saheb. In fact this name was suggested by him. i am keeping it. I carry no obligation to address you as you have asked to do. i understand your ant size brain can't accommodate it. you seems to have high ego of being American, republican, Sufi, moderate, liberal etc. i know very well when to puncture the balloons of ego.

    your demand is outrightly rejected. you don't deserve any respect. Have you forgotten respect begets respect"
    my name is Mohammad Yunus. First part is Mohammed you must know who was he, and second is Yunus you must know who was he.
    i am not sending salat o salam on you, just because you carry the name Mohammed. Neither i am Sultan Ghaznavi who murderd uncountable people, enslaved uncountable, looted with no parallel still respected a slave just because his name was mohammed.

    Pseudo Rational,


    When you address any post to my attention, kindly address with my first name “Mohammed.


    Mind you that I am not like you. I am proud of my name and do not continue to disrespect my religion nor our Holy Quran. Is that clearly understood, Pseudo?

  • Rafiq Lodhia, Don't want to discuss this topic. i understand your concern. it will be very difficult if not impossible to defend the Quran and the prophet on this issue.
    Mr Ghulam M understands it, that is why he doesn't want to discuss antiquated text which is problematic to Islam.
    Muslims's role in adopting the children throughout the world is negligible.
    "God did not make your adopted son as your own sons. To declare them so is your empty claim. God's word is righteous and constitutes true guidance. (Q.33: 4).
    After a term of married life with her husband, We permitted you to marry her so that it may hence be legitimate and morally blameless for a believer to marry the wife of his adopted son provided that wife has already been divorced. That is God's commandment which must be fulfilled(Q.33: 37)
    Tafseer tells why this custom was removed from the Islamic society.
    By rational mohammed yunus - 2/20/2014 12:41:17 AM

  • hehe. no. I thought Taslima said a very sensible thing, and Mr GM has also said a very sensible thing in the first para of his comment. The second para, though is debatable.

    I just thought it very funny that Mr Lodhia should have provided a link that contained that cartoon strip.

  • You must be “Good Word” blind. Is that all you can see, Mr.? Little wonder that your own brain is in line with Pseudo too. Why not try to read few good comments? If not, then you and your chumps will be again be on a terrorizing spree with all the jibber jabber to throw at us. There are so many people like you around who are not able to see or read anything good about Islam. Having one’s mind in the gutter will only make a human see bad things and never anything good. You got the drift, Mr.!

    Before this particular subject on “Adoption” becomes a long thread with all the nasty remarks, it is my sincere advice to all of you to check out the link as follows:
    We sure could spare a whole lot of time by reflecting upon the comments of others first before we confront people like Pseudo Rational into a wild goose chase. The hateful man and his loyal cohorts will never be content with any answers provided in the discourse.

  • Ghulam saheb. you accommodated two things in:
    All antiquated Muslim Personal Laws must be amended to reflect current ethos and be in consonance with Indian laws. Our ultimate goal must be to have a Uniform Civil Code as the Constitution requires. The law prohibiting adoption makes no sense today.
    my response:what do you want amended Muslim Personal Board or Uniform Civil Code? if you say Uniform Civil Code is in line with the Quran then where is the need of amended personal law board.
    Please be specific.
    regarding adoption: before Islam it was common noble practice among the Jahil Arabs and throughout the world. who abrogated this human noble practice? was it the prophet through the Quran or clergy? can you deny the reality adoption in Muslim society is almost negligible. A Muslim adopt a child when he is unaware of Islam's stand on adoption.
    you can say there is no command in the Quran against the adoption, but where is the verse to approve it. then how clergy got it? from where?
    i am not criticizing your stand on the need of modern secular humanistic laws. please refrain from calling the names and finding ill intentions behind my comments.

  • In continuation of my previous comment, an adopted child inherits from its natural parents. Adoption does not change the natural order.
    By Observer - 2/19/2014 7:20:08 PM

  • As far as I know, there has never been a law against adoption and adoptions have been fairly common among Muslims. The law is that an adopted child does not inherit like a natural child except through a will.

    By Observer - 2/19/2014 7:16:41 PM

  • The muslim law against adoption was not due to 7th century, but because Mohammed wanted to marry his adopted son's wife
    By Barani - 2/19/2014 3:56:58 PM

  • "Supreme Court Gives Muslims Right to Adopt a Child" - -  All antiquated Muslim Personal Laws must be amended to reflect current ethos and be in consonance with Indian laws. Our ultimate goal must be to have a Uniform Civil Code as the Constitution requires. The law prohibiting adoption makes no sense today.

    Our laws should be based on the Quranic principles of egalitarianism, justice, fairness, reasonableness and compassion. These principles yielded one set of laws in the seventh century Arabia. The same five Quranic principles, if applied in the 21st century, may theoretically yield laws that would not be too different from the laws of any civilized 21st century society.
