Anonymous said: what do you think about a girl who does all the wajibat (salat, fast, hijab, etc) considering marriage with a boy who struggles with praying, does not fast, and has a not-so-decent past?

Because you’re asking me personally, my answer would be don’t go forward (my opinion isn’t worth half a cent). The one thing you have in your life is your eman and it’s a pity if you downgrade on it by marrying somebody who is less religious than you. Yeah, there is always a potential of the boy to improve but what if he doesn’t? you should marry people as is and not on potential because there is no guarantee they will change. Girls usually are super influenced by the man they marry so it’s a high chance he will make you less committed. Would you want your kids conflicted by seeing a mom who is practicing and a day who isn’t as much?

Again there are exceptions and in case is different. Just surface value I think eman-wise it would be ideal for the couple to be at the same level.

Anonymous said: Are Muslim women suppose to wear abaya/jilbab when they go out? Or do modest clothing satisfy?

Please ask a scholar about this and don’t take my word for it. 

From what I know/heard there is no requirement as it specifically being an abaya and the criteria is that the clothing should cover all the skin of the body except the face and the hands. Also, it should be modest and loose and not to show the curvature of a woman’s body. I remember a sheikh saying some ladies can just wear a very loose shirt and very baggy pants and be fine while others might feel the abaya is better. Sometimes some abayas nowadays are tight or cut in a way that it shows the curvature more and it’s more attractive to men vs if the girl just wore pants that were loose … at the end of the day, as girls we shouldn’t fool ourselves and most of the time your gut feeling will tell you whether your outfit is modest or not … go stand in front of your dad and if he says your outfit is immodest, you have your answer.

“A person who says I don’t want to progress spiritually too high since the test gets more difficult is similar to a person sitting by the door of mercy of Allah who has left it open for them to come in but they just tell Allah to bring whatever it is to them and leave it by the door …” — Br. K
