Deceased mother's inheritance in grandfather's estatehttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/743895-deceased-mothers-inheritance-in-grandfathers-estate/




The problem I'm faced with is rather complex so I'm hoping to look for helpful suggestions which are governed strictly under the light of Islam.

My mother passed away before the demise of my Maternal grandfather. My Nana Abu left behind an estate which is to be divided among all his offsprings now. According to the Shariah Law of inheritance, if a child passes away before the demise of the parent, His/Her ( family, children) do not inherit anything from their Grandfather's (Maternal or Paternal) estate. But according to the amendment in Pakistan's law of inheritance which happened somewhere in the 1960s, the grandchildren inherit whatever share their parent had in their grandfather's estate.

My question here is whether or not I would be sinful and accountable in the eyes of religion if I take my mother's share of inheritance from my Nana Abu's estate because According to Shariah, I cannot make any claim but accoring to Pakistani law, I can claim my mother's complete share from my Nana's Estate.

I want to add a few key points here, I'm not in need of this inheritance and the only reason why I want to claim my share is so I can further give it to someone who has been deprived of their share in the inheritance. I will not be keeping any of this inheritance money for my personal use, I will pass on all of it to someone else in the extended family and that is the whole intention behind it.

What Was The Point Of This Islamic Forum Again?https://www.gawaher.com/topic/29299-what-was-the-point-of-this-islamic-forum-again/:D dear muslims

 

Alhamdulillah, this is a superb website, May Allah (SWT) reward Dot, and the mods, and all those who help this site.

 

i would just like to say, form my understandings, this website was made for Dawah Purposes.

 

To Clear Stupid Misconceptions, and refute Lies made against Islam.

 

A sort of Light for those non-muslims intrested in Islam.

 

However, as alot of you may have noticed, Alot of Non-Muslims, with no intrest in Islam what so ever, have suddenly popped out of nowhere. Jolined the website, and telling us how bad we are.

 

IM not going to give any names, its obvious who.

 

The point of this topic is, If this purpose of this website is to help muslims, and give dawah to Non-muslims who are intrested in Islam.

 

Then, how can this possibly proceed with non-muslims, posting and replying and Nonesense, Lies, propaganda, Messages of HATE. Supporting the Killing of muslims, and treating the dead muslims an negligible statistics.

 

Im telling you now, any open-minded person, will see this, and will believe it. Shaytaan will definatly play his part.

 

THis problem needs to be sorted, becausae even some muslims are starting to believe these Kuffar

What Has Happened To The Forum?https://www.gawaher.com/topic/742071-what-has-happened-to-the-forum/As salaam alaykum 

 

What has happened to the forum in the sense that it has been so quiet for a long time? I know people have their own lives and I too myself have been absent for long periods but I like this forum compared to others out there. 

 

I wonder are people actually coming to the forum and just not posting (the lurkers) or is it a case that forums are not popular anymore? There is a wealth of information on this forum, its sad to think that its not being used when it could be fixed by promoting the website more.

 

Whatever the reason I would like for the forum to become active again, I enjoy posting here. I personally don't use social media, but wouldn't it be a good way to promote the website, brother dot? Or maybe some of the members could promote it also just to get it a bit active again. 

 

Anyone else have any suggestions?

New Section To Refute Christianshttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/740511-new-section-to-refute-christians/:sl:

 

Dear Muslim members

 

Every now and then, a new Christian joins the forum, and start repeating the same nonsense regarding the trinity, Crucifixion, defending their man-made books etc.

I see that a lot of our members are masha'Allah able to defeat these lies with strong logic, knowledge and evidences, but the problem is that repeatedly replying to an endless number of Christians, for the same repeated issues, wastes your time and energy.

 

That is why I decided to start a new section, where I hereby invite all Muslim members interested in participating, to start a centralized topic for each of the points we Muslims hold against Christians.

Once we have a set of topics, 20, 50 or even more, we can then just use links to those centralized topics in all our replies to those Christians who start debates about the same issues. That insha'Allah will save your time and efforts, and makes for more efficient replies.

 

The centralized topics would also help us join forces, combining all we know about any particular issue in one place. The topics will start locked for all but the team participating in the project. It will be open for replies only when the team says so. Or maybe we keep it locked if you think that is better.

 

You can use this topic (or PM me) to apply for the project, and also to participate in making a list of all the topic titles that each of you can start, to avoid repeated topics. Of course later any number of team members can add to the same topic.

Gawaher Has No Place For Fanaticshttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/24694-gawaher-has-no-place-for-fanatics/:D

 

Islam is a moderate religion. Likewise, this forum has no place for fanatics, extremists and hard-line Muslims.

This forum's main objective is: non-Muslims. We're trying our best to show the world how beautiful and peaceful Islam is, and how simple to follow. Islam is not just a religion, its a way of life. Islam can co-exist with all times, all races colors and cultures. To send this message, we rely heavily on so many wonderful members of this community, who understand how moderate and flexible Islam really is, with their friendly and cool approach, and their willingness to help everyone who come to this forum looking for info or guidance.

 

Yet, sometimes we encounter Muslim extremists who come to this forum and start their endless debates, usually around the word 'bid'aa' (innovation). According to them, anything new in this world is a bid'aa, and so haram (Islamically unlawfull). They stand firm like a rock against any advances the Islamic world tries to acheive. They stand firm against all those who try to implement new ways to live in co-existance between Islamic teachings and the modern age we live in, to keep up with the latest advances in technology and information,

 

To those extremists I say, disconnect yourself and swich off your computer right now, for according to your standards, its a bid'aa.

 

The bottom line is: this forum is not suitable for fanatic Muslims

You will not be comfortable here if, for example, you:

  • refuse to greet a non-Muslim with 'Peace'.
  • can justify the killing of civilians anywhere in the world.
  • think that suicide bombers, who kill themselves with their own hands, together with women and children around, are martyrs.
  • think that all art, pictures, animations, music, movies are haram
  • follow only and exclusively the scholars of the salaf.
  • think that niqab, not hijab, is obligatory for all women, and that growing a beard is obigatory for all men.

For the rest of us, moderate and friendly Muslims, enjoy your stay, and insh'Allah Allah :D will reward you for doing your obligatory call for Islam (da'wa). Barak Allah feekum wa jazakum alf khayr.

Dear Dothttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/741127-dear-dot/I just want to say thank you for allowing us to speak our minds on the recent issue, and valuing our opinions.  I truly appreciate it, as I'm sure many others do.  I do realize that there might be a problem, but I feel as if we can find a better way to deal with it.  Could we possibly relegate a "non-Muslim" friendly section that would be the only place where Bible/other verses are allowed to be posted, while keeping all other sections of the forum "pure"?

I'm Tired Of Those Peoplehttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/741057-im-tired-of-those-people/:sl:

 

Dear members

That's it. I'm really tired of wasting our time and yours on non-Muslims who come here with a preset mind against Islam and Muslims. They keep repeating the same questions, and each time one of them join the forum, all members spend hours replying to them with excellent replies and the kindest words, trying to show them the truth. Then the same is repeated time and time again, with thousands of new comers. It sometimes works, but most of the time it doesn't. Most of them have their brains locked for good.

 

Something should be done to stop the bleeding of your time and efforts.

 

Something is wrong with the whole concept of discussion boards. Same discussions are started over and over again, and the same sincere answers of Muslims who dedicate much of their time and efforts are being wasted on people who's minds and hearts are locked. Then the same efforts are made with the next non-Muslim, and the next.. endlessly.

 

I'm trying to find out a setup, where we:

1- do not shut out any new non-Muslim who comes to our forum doors

2- But waste as less as possible of our members' time and efforts

 

Any ideas?

 

I'm thinking, maybe we should ask the non-Muslim to read an ebook or something first (related to his question of course) before we reply to his questions. If he is sincere, he would read it, then we can start discussing with him any part he chooses from that source. This way we deny him any ill reference he could be having ready before he joins the forum. Those who come to repeat the lies of the anti Islamic websites will find that they will have to set those resources aside, and discuss only what we ask them to read. What do you all think?

Warning For Discussion Is Interesting..https://www.gawaher.com/topic/741324-warning-for-discussion-is-interesting/Bismihi Subhanah.. Salam.. First thing in the morning, I got an e-mail informing me about a warning issued here.

And the reason I was given is "discussing jihad or tawassul" on a thread.. So, I should not comment when a so-called jihadi group destroying masjids, tombs, churches, tabacco etc. is thought to be Islamic? Or I should not comment when few catholic brethren here discuss the meaning of intermediation and I mention it is the same as tawassul in sunni and shia Islam and refer to a commonality? Well, I thought this is a forum for discussion and sharing knowledge.. What's the "warning" for? And why delete my post? If you think I am wrong, so please correct me.. If you won't bother discussing and won't get my post back and if you will keep deleting the posts of your brother in faith, -whereas you discuss with non-muslims and not delete their posts- then it is quite strange to me, better delete my account and keep the "forum" "clean" from discussions then.. Thanks. Ma salam

Name Change Requesthttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/740345-name-change-request/I've decided that I don't want to go by my old name anymore. Part of this is that I'm slowly recovering some of the old spark and want to symbolize the change. It may even help my attitude if I give myself that final little push. But I also have come to dislike the custom of non-Arabs going by overtly Arab-sounding traditional names, as this does nothing in the end but encourage the old "Arab = Muslim" stereotype.

Therefore I would like to go by Zamzam from now on, after the hadith about The Prophet's heart being washed and filled with faith and wisdom. It's a very powerful symbol. I also just like the sound of the word. Go ahead, say it out loud. I could put a message in my signature for a while clarifying who I am.

The New Lookhttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/740184-the-new-look/Assalamualaikum,

I actually think that the new look of the "latest posts" bar on the right side of front page is not that appealing compared to the old one. On the old one, we can know the latest writings of someone, but not including the post he quoted. Now even the post we quote is shown on "latest posts" so sometimes it gives me wrong impression about new post written by someone. So, I will appreciate if the look of "latest posts" can come back to the old look. The new developments of this forum are good except the "latest posts" in my opinion.

Wassalam

Innocence Of Muslimshttps://www.gawaher.com/topic/739526-innocence-of-muslims/All credit goes to Nonsensei from the *********Forums:

 

In the natural course of my internet wanderings over the past couple of days I have, unsurprisingly, read a great deal about the attacks on U.S. missions in several countries in the middle east. I have learned that the attackers are upset about some B film supposedly produced by "an israeli-American from California with $5 million in contributions from Jews". The former, about his israeli-American dual citizenship status, is something questionable since despite speaking to news agencies nobody can verify the name he gave to the media - including the government of israel. The latter, regarding the contributions, sounds like an absurd and unsubstantiated claim of the sort that would be made by people with an agenda and a warped sense of respect for the value of truth. It could turn out that this is entirely correct, but until it is confirmed it sounds like nonsense.

 

(NOTE: I wrote this at 6am before the news confirmed what i suspected, that the involvement of "jew money" and his dual citizenship was all !@#$%^&*.)

 

I have not watched the film and, indeed, I may not be able to as it is reported Youtube has restricted access to the video. I'm sure I could still dig it up somewhere, and I likely will at some point. I just haven't yet.

 

But I don't need to see it ever to render an opinion on the entire situation, because no matter how heinous the content, it is and always will be my position that freedom of speech permits this film to exist with an expectation that no legal repercussions or threats of physical violence will be leveled at the maker.

 

Now, I expect that an unknown number of people from the middle east may disagree. Certainly the mob of people who allowed themselves to be gripped so deeply by gross irrationality to the degree that they blamed a country for the actions of an individual and killed people that weren't even involved in the film would likely have no respect for our concept of free speech. What appears to matter to them is that someone broke the rules of their religion and the fact that it was someone who doesn't follow Islam and isn't subject to those rules doesn't matter to them in the slightest. Indeed the shameful history of fatwas issued on various western artists for "insulting Islam" shows the arrogance of the de facto Islamic assertion that everyone is subject to the rules of Islam.

 

But this is an old topic. I am unsurprised at the actions of uneducated, impoverished individuals who understandably have a fierce protective attitude toward the twisted ideology that allows them to retain some measure of pride and a sense (however false) of significance in an otherwise miserable existence. Religion, ignorance, poverty, and a lack of comprehensive education have been bedfellows since the beginning of civilization.

 

What disturbed me more than anything else about this situation was some of the comments I read by people who, presumably, were members of the western world and democracies like the United States. Certainly there is plenty of ignorance and hatred here as well as anywhere, but I had thought there would be a more widespread support for one of the most basic rights we enjoy in a democratic republic: free speech.

 

However that does not appear to be the case. There is a trend among article commentators talking about using free speech "responsibly". The insinuation being that if your exercise of your free speech rights offends someone else to the degree that they do something irrational like gather a mob and murder people, then you should be held responsible for that crime. The number of people on, for example, the CNN article about the man behind the film (who has now gone into hiding for good reason) that think his personal and private information should be made available to the world presumably to enable revenge is horrifying. There are even some who think he should kill himself as an apology to the Islamic faith.

I have a problem with this demand that free speech be used "responsibly" primarily because its such an easy thing to say. The standard of what is "responsible" use of free speech changes with each person you ask. Moreover, adding the requirement of responsible use without definition permits any use of free speech to be suppressed, as it is an entirely open ended requirement.

 

lets talk about responsibility in free speech. If you use free speech to intentionally excite a mob to riot, you have committed a crime. That's understandable. You spoke to a group of people vulnerable to your vernacular with the intention of enticing them toward violence. There are two points of this example that are relevant to the film situation. The first is the group of people and their readiness to do violence. It has been shown on many occasions that ordinary Muslims in the middle east are ready to destroy and kill in the name of their religion. Perhaps it can be argued that anyone making a film insulting Islam should have expected this sort of reaction. To me, that sounds like nothing more than lowering the bar. Nobody would think it a reasonable expectation that people murder and kill over a movie here in the United States. I see no reason that people in the middle east should be held to a lower standard. Furthermore, the reasons for their violent and murderous actions are utterly invalid. No actual harm was done to any of them by the film. They responded to words and images with murder and destruction.

 

Nobody could have anticipated such a ridiculous reaction and nobody should be expected to be able to predict it. This segues into the intent. Considering the reaction of the man claiming to be behind the film, the way those Muslims reacted was totally outside his expectations. He has been described as being distraught at the violence committed by these people in retaliation for his film. I think its fair to say that probably everyone here has spoken their mind on Islam and what they think about it. Considering the nature of this venue, much of it has not been complimentary. The man who made this film was doing the same thing we have all done. He simply did it in film instead of text. Consider that if a printout of everything we have said about Islam on these boards were distributed in the middle east along with our names and addresses, our lives would be put in jeopardy.

 

Instead of blaming the film maker for expressing his view of Islam, however misguided, we should place the blame for the violence where it belongs: at the feet of the people who committed it.

Dirty Words Are Everywhere?https://www.gawaher.com/topic/739857-dirty-words-are-everywhere/Assalamuaikum,

I saw on our beloved forum that members now could easily and freely write dirty words that either provoked or insulted another members. Even some of them insulted our prophet or teachings!

It dissapointed me to see those lowly actions on Islamic forum. Even if you, moderators/admins/guardians can't ban members easily, but surely you can delete those posts that filled with dirty words. It is to maintain the image of this Islamic forum as a peaceful forum with well-mannered members.

I do hope moderators/admins/guardians will think about my suggestion. All I hope is a good Islamic forum where I can learn and discuss about Islam peacefully without any troll/spam/junker interfering.

How Do You Know That Allah Exists?https://www.gawaher.com/topic/739411-how-do-you-know-that-allah-exists/

 

This is a post saying WHY you believe. I did not ask this. I would love to believe in a deity; the mindset of hope it gives you, the determination, is unparalleled. But I believe things only when I am provided with proof, which, under my ideology, does not exist.

 

 

 

This is not a comment nor a suggestion, it's a warning.

 

This is the quote of Ashir and the title of his topic. My right is to know why he is banned?? If you can't call him, I can and I challenge you all that he is a good person.

 

I offered you for free how to call in the right way and no one respond, if you think you're perfect and you are not, then let this man to speak freely as long as he seeks the truth.

 

 

* It's a message to the admins of the forum which will lose its message if insist in its unjust policy which is against Islam.
