Assalamualaikum and a bigggg HELLO to all the awesome people here!
My name is Arifa, and I am from Singapore. I am born into a traditional Sunni (very traditional~) family. Since young, I have heard alot about the "Islam" and many things have bothered me. In fact, I almost completely lost faith in Islam and was on the brink of madness. Literally. Women cannot do this. Women cannot do that. You can listen to music, blahblahblah.
And when I asked my mom for explanations concerning these practices, all i got was byou are a kafir/munafiq questioning islam!"
Yes mom, i am a kafir/munafiq in the SUNNI ISLAM.
I am also in an "ustaza" in a sunni madrasah. And all these poor kids are made to do is to memorise hadiths/surah/dua if not, they will get spanked. Im serious.
And I attended a sermon last month, and a "scholar" was telling that when a guy gets married, he doesnt have to listen to the wife but has to obey the parents. but when a GIRL gets married, she has to disobey HER parents to obey him. (idiot he is, im telling you! the only reason he is alive is because it is illegal to kill him -.-"
Just a month ago, I was searching for an explanation for some of the other idiotic hadiths he was saying. And then I somehow stumbled upon this website. Praise be to the lord! i felt that supermegaultraveryso awesome moment when the truth unfolds before your very eyes! HALELLUJAH! Hehe(: After much research, i decided that hadith and sunna are utter rubbish! I mean, how can these people think that one of the Muhammad's missions was potty training for adults?!
Haha, after a few days, i got into an argument with my mom. She told me that some hadith (hadith nawawi) and the Duas were inspired to muhammad alongside with the Quran.
Then, I told her that following the hadith & sunna is a BIG disrespect to Muhammad. Guess what happened? My phone got confiscated
Haha so weird man seriously. Anyways, I am now clear of all these rubbish in my head! I am ready to begin my spiritual journey to find out the TRUTH of the Qur'an. And I am also looking forward in having conversations with all of you! Once again, HOLA!
