Yeah Thanks guys for your replies. as for what is it that makes me doubt. Some verses in the Quran for instance. such as the self serving Mohammed verses. Of course, Hadith is not part of this discussion. I am just sticking with Quran here. If I was asked what is it about islam that bothers me, I would fill pages worth of things.
I do find solace in prayer/salat though. I will check out that website you sent me and get back to you.
I also think that my struggle to stay sober using Duaa, prayer and programs of recovery did not lead to any positive outcome, in fact just the opposite. getting worst and worst, is not helping either.


I have been dealing with a serious addiction for over a couple of decades. For the last few years, I have worked different program of recovery and also started praying Fajr at Masjid and the like.
But every 2 months, I would relapse to the point that I started to doubt Allah and his message and Mohammed
I would find very reasonable reasons that this message is could not come from Thee God. But then I would revert back to islam once again and pray(salat) and read the Quran again. This cycle been going for years now. As of today, I prayed Fajr at the mosque, but as I read Quran sometimes I start to doubt again.
Wondering if anyone ever felt this way before? and if someone could help, ready to talk on Skype.
My Duaa nowadays is asking God to make me one of the Mumineen, If I could just have the Iman of the pious, If I could just believe without a doubt...

Interesting questions from a woman's perspective, except for Hour l ain and the Hijab. these two are up to many interpretations. My mother and sister never covered their hair.
My mother is a devout muslim and never bleived that the Hijab is mandatory. I find it odd that when Americans or else convert to islam, they get so brain washed by different interpretations of the tet that they even go all out and wear the Burqa.

Salat & Zakat (The Contact & Purification) / Salat Fajr question
« on: July 20, 2018, 01:17:32 PM »
Just started praying back again, after leaving islam for good for a while. have many doubts regarding many things, but that' for another time.
My question is the following:
Following Quran alone, is Fajr prayer witnessed...ect. in other ways, according to Quran alone, how important is it to make Fajr prayer on time and does Quran mention anything about making Fajr at the mosque and how important that is?

Thank you guys

I wonder, is it Modern Standard Arabic?

I don't understand your question. let's say I understand Arabic and from the link NewFenzy sent:
قُل لازواجک means tell your wives, not tell the community
يَا نِسَاءَ النَّبِيِّ   to it means wives or women of the prophet, it was translated to "O you weaker segments of Nabi?s community"
Hey, I wish that translation was true, but unfortunately, pushing it there a bit

New Frenzy,

I would love for that translation to be true, would be nice. But I speak Arabic and he just flatly changed the word women or wives to community.

I was reading a translation of the Quran by I would guess a reformist and he changed "...right hand possess" to " except what is committed to by your oath" what is he trying to say here?

I had left Islam many times over,then decided to leave mainstream islam and follow Quran alone, but there are still many questions unanswered.
such as, why would God allow Mohammed to have so many wives and go even further to tell the umma in the Quran that he can have any woman if she desires to marry him. why would God come down with a surah regarding adoption right when Mohammed wanted to marry his adopted son's wife?
I started praying again, but I still am not convinced.
