Is it okay in Islam to fall in love with your best friend? I am not a muslim, but I love and respect the religion as a beautiful one. I know there are strict guidelines for ‘romance’ and that couples should be married before becoming intimate.But I wonder. If a man and a woman have been best friends for years, and ended up falling in love before marriage, but never actually became intimate, their marriage while already being in love would be alright, yeah?I am looking for actual Muslims to perhaps answer this question? Thank you c:
Intimate Voices (C. P. First) sheet music is available online.
They actually say that best friends make the best relationships. I think that is with any religion. I’ve heard from many people that if you want to get married, marry your best friend.
While I’m not a Muslim I do know that the roots to the Islamic religion are similar to Judaism since they are both based on the Torah.I know that it’s not actually a marriage unless it’s been consummated. “falling in love” is a feeling – either you are married or you aren’t. I’m not aware that there are any laws that require you to stay away from someone that you love as long as you’re not both males.
Solly, Chumley, but unless someone has changed the definition of “marriage”, there is no marriage until you DO become intimate. It is fine to love whomever you wish, how you go about comsummating that physically is where the issues get sticky.Blessings on your Journey!
Women are inferior to men: “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely God is most high. Qur’an 4:34 Women are worth half of man:“Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: The Prophet said, “Isn’t the witness of a women equal to half that of a man?” The women said “yes”. He said “This is because of the deficiency of the women’s mind.” Sahih Bukhari 3:48:82 Women are sex slaves:“And now, people, you acquire certain rights over your wives, and they do you. The right you acquire over them is that they should not let someone you hate sleep in your beds, and not to commit a manifest obscenity [or adultery]. If they do [commit it], then God has given you permission to leave them alone in their beds and give them a beating, though not too hard. If they give over, they get their provision and clothing with kindness; I command you good-will for your wives, for they are your captives that do not own anything of their own. You have taken them by the faithfulness of God, and made their sexual organs lawful for you by the words of God.” Ibn Hisham, al-Sira al-nabawiyya (Cairo, 1963), 4:251. Women are Toys:“Omar [one of the Khalifs] was once talking when his wife interjected, so he said to her: ‘You are a toy, if you are needed we will call you.” Al-Musanaf Vol. 1 Part 2, p. 263 Women are Weak:Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet had a Had (a camel driver) called Anjasha, and he had a nice voice. The Prophet said to him, “(Drive) slowly, O Anjasha! Do not break the glass vessels!” And Qatada said, “(By vessels’) he meant the weak women.” Sahih Bukhari 8:73:230, See also: Sahih Bukhari 8:73:228 & Sahih Bukhari 8:73:229 Women are a Tilth for Men to Cultivate:“Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will; but do some good act for your souls beforehand; and fear Allah. And know that ye are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these) good tidings to those who believe.” Qur’an 2:223 Women are Like Devils Jabir reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) saw a woman, and so he came to his wife, Zainab, as she was tanning a leather and had sexual intercourse with her. He then went to his Companions and told them: The woman advances and retires in the shape of a devil, so when one of you sees a woman, he should come to his wife, for that will repel what he feels in his heart. Sahih Muslim 8:3240 Woman are Evil Omen:Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: I heard the Prophet saying. “Evil omen is in three things: The horse, the woman and the house.” Sahih Bukhari 4:52:110 Men May Marry up to Four Women”“If you fear you can not treat orphans (girls) with fairness, then you may marry other women who seem good to you: two, three or four of them. But if you fear that you can not maintain equality among them, marry only one or any slave girls you may own, that will be more suitable. And give the women their dower as a free gift; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, eat it with enjoyment, take it with right good cheer and absorb it (in your wealth).” Qur’an 4:3Violence Against Women”“Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.” Qur’an 4:34
If i was a talking dolphin would you marry me? If i was a male talking dolphin would you marry me
yes! i have a fixation on dolphins! i think they have a soul just like humans, i believe they can feel empathy! Dolphin Communication and Feeling Understood Empathy from others and feeling understood have been shown to be essential to positive human growth and development throughout life, as infants, children, and adults. Empathy for others is an asset in personal and work relationships. Recognizing the importance of and finding ways to nurture empathy gained academic attention as recently as the 1980’s. How to teach and learn this communication skill has much to offer society but still puzzles investigators.During 25 years of dolphin communication studies, I found that dolphins encourage and support empathy in humans. Dolphin contact is often reported in the same terms as Feeling Understood. Lack of connection in a dolphin experience elicits feelings similar to those in intimate human relations when we are isolated by the other’s inattention: “It hurts to reach out to someone who doesn’t respond,” (Nichols, p. 31).How have dolphins received this power to hurt or uplift us? What can human-dolphin relations teach us about human relationships?Dolphins are expert communicators. They have four separate voices, which they can use independently and simultaneously. They are very often in tactile and eye contact with each other. Dolphins have well developed frontal lobes cited to be a constituent of empathy in humans (Empathy: The State of the Art and Science, p. 16).My mentor, Dr. John C. Lilly, described in detail their brains and abilities in several books, inspiring the producer of the Flipper TV series. He was the first to say that dolphins would be able to speak with us and the limitations of speaking with dolphins are with us rather than with them. He encouraged our pursuit of communication with dolphins, as a species with brains and intelligence equal to or greater than ours.People now assume that dolphins are highly intelligent. This myth of dolphin intelligence colors our interactions with them. Leaders in human potential development have popularized dolphin contact, swimming with wild dolphins, fueling and capitalizing on this myth. People who go to the effort of seeking swimming with dolphins already have preconceptions in their mind. The Seeker’s esteem for the dolphin elevates them above other animals, and often characterizes them as more spiritually advanced than humans. Dolphins are being promoted as living in a higher dimension than we are but willing to help us get there.In Dolphin Healing Dolphin Heart by Terry Walker (1998), I was quoted in the heading for a chapter, “The dolphins offer us this key to communication– friendship.” Despite how we define or prove intelligence in dolphins, despite their actual abilities, the pervasive image of dolphins allows people to enter into a special communication with them which is characterized by similar phrases as feeling understood. We approach them with respect, even honor and awe. We believe they are telepathic. We desire and sense a deep understanding and empathy from them. We go to them in deep friendship with a desire to be healed by them. We also desire to participate in healing the world and ourselves in order to help dolphins and the oceans that sustain them. In many cases, our empathic response for dolphins is greater than our empathy for humans.The dolphin’s key to communication—the openness of genuine friendship– is the easiest way to explain ways we could improve our relationships. If only we approached others as we approach dolphins. We meet dolphins with a sense of sacred space, asking for blessings on the journey together. We watch for signs of hidden wisdom inside the other, anticipating that the other can read our thoughts and feels what we project into the space between us. We read compassion in eye-to-eye contact; we imagine deep knowingness bridging the distance between species. Imagine our conversations with people if we open up to deep friendship with others. By deep friendship I don’t mean merely passing as friendly, but having a genuine concern for the other’s well being, desire to understand and be understood by the other with respect for their good intentions and intelligence.Think of situations in which we open up in friendship while communicating. For instance, in massage the practitioner opens herself to the client and in that space receives much more information about the client than is usually accepted in normal conversations. This is the sort of channel that seems to open in dolphin communication because of our beliefs and approach to the other. When my child is hurt, I find a place of empathy inside myself to say “I’m sorry” deeply, with feeling. Transferring that empathy so the child feels it too is often the only thing needed to stop the tears. As we communicate in heartfelt friendship, our communications will deepen. This applies to intrapersonal, interpersonal, global
