    Exclamation Name changes

    Assalamu alaykum,

    I just wanted to note that there seems to be an extremely high proportion of people requesting name changes...some regularly.

    Can we just make it crystal clear here.

    Name changes are NOT a given norm, they are ONLY in exceptional circumstances.

    If you want to change you name to MASK your identity, so to speak, sorry but that is not a valid excuse. Anyone can browse your history of posts and see your orginal name quoted. so it is better to resign up with a new name rather than change the existing one.

    If it is a spelling error...BE CAREFUL when you are signing up!

    If it because its similar to someone elses...TOO BAD, you should have checked it out first before signing up!

    If it is a matter of life and death...we may look into it.

    Otherwise STOP requesting name changes to lame and fickle reasons! Its a waste of everyone's time!

    And if you are a long time user, it is even more disliked because your username will be established and it causes a lot of confusion amongst the mods and users having a newname to that old user!!

    Please feel free to add any other commenst to this mods/ admins lol..this is just off the top of my head
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

    Re: Name changes

    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    Re: Name changes

    Create a 'Member previously known as' thread so people can keep up with the name changes.

    I don't think many people revise their registering details when they sign up. If they do, they're simply gay. And typos can't always be avoided.

    As for looking up the names of other members... You're signing up with a forum, not something overly important where similar usernames can cause volcanic eruption. If you really look up the names of members before signing up with a forum, you're just being stupid.

    'asiya, if you really want that taken off, why don't you? It's a bother typing your name with that apostrophe. I know you didn't ask me to, but I'm giving you my support.

    Wassalam,
    The Great Ruler-sama

    I was wondering, does pronunciation make a difference? because the name 'asiya (the one spelt with and ain and saad) is usually pronounced the way the asiya (meaning nurse) is pronounced...(obviously as theres no english equivalent to the ain and saad)

    or have I got it all wrong with the letters?

    yep `asiya means disobedient. asiya means One who tends to the weak, one who nurses, comforts, consoles.

    So, judging by this graph :



    .... I'd say 'name changes' are a near impossibility

    Why don't you become .:asiya:.? Quite a few members seem to have it that way. Anna too.

    Re: Name changes

    What about aasiya? double aa? is that taken?
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    muslim

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    sorry, but this dosen't make sense with this-

    "And if you are a long time user, it is even more disliked because your username will be established and it causes a lot of confusion amongst the mods and users having a newname to that old user!!"

    You think registering again wouldn't cause confusion?

    Re: Name changes

    Can I please ask why some accounts are disabled? I would like to change my name and have an alias instead, I didn't realise that once you register you couldn't change it. Anyway if I could have my account disabled could I change it then please instead of re-registering?

    Re: Name changes

    Asalam Wakaykum,

    can I change my name please.

    everytime I try to send in I have to copy and paste my name from a thread because of these hearts, and it is really annoying.

    also when people want to PM me, my name doesnt come up because they have to paste the hearts and so messages are being sent to the other Hafsah, and visa versa people keep thinking I am her and messaging me

    so please can I change it?

    JazakAllah khayr

    Re: Name changes

    Dear Admin,

    I want a name, so are you willing to donate 1minute of your time to do it or shall I just register a new account?

    Kind Regards,
    Remember the destroyer of all pleasures: Death.
