Enough

Enough! A web of lies. A mesh of treachery. A snare of shams. Egocentric. Guilt blaming. Gas lighting. Stone walling. Narcissist. Separated. Now divorced. Still you control. Drama. http://nour-dv.org.uk/wp-admin/post-new.php# Bored? Jaded? Scared I might reveal the truth? Leave me at peace. In my cave. Alone with my Lord. Comfort is al Qu’ran. Weapon is my prayer.

Hurting all over

  ‘Contrary to what critics of Islam may say, domestic violence is not permitted in Islam. In Nour’s domestic violence booklet, their Islamic advisors and consultant shuyookh explain the ‘misunderstood verse’ “… and beat them” (An-Nisa:34) and clarify that the Prophet (SAW) explained it as ‘dharban ghayra mubarrih’ which translates as ‘a light tap, as light as a feather stroke that leaves no mark’. […] we know that the Prophet (SAW) was the perfect example of the teachings in the Qur’an and it is clear from his seerah...
