    I would like the definition of need/necessity according to the scholars which hold that position.

    Or is it subjective to ones own opinion?

    Where I live for example , you can get away with not having a car. You can work at a local store and have a taxi deliver your groceries.

    Unfortunately it is highly improbable that anyone would marry someone without a car. Not saying that justifies the insurance but no one follows this position. No one is even promoting and calling the people away from driving in the west. I would expect the imams to be delivering lectures regarding this like they do 'riba'.

    I am not saying what is halal or haram , but I assume some would say - the times we live in makes owning a car a necessity.

    Every muslim I have ever met drives or are working their way to buy a car and I am sure no one will command their fathers or mothers to start taking trains instead of driving to the masjid, grocery store , malls , relatives , etc.
    The issue of need and necessity is taken too lightly. I have less problem with people saying they know it is haram but do it than those who try and justify it. That is the key for me.

    i think today we need a car less than previous times

    Also worth noting is that Islam is a religion of mercy. If things get hard, to use your example of going to the masjid we dont

    What i notice today is that people get mortgages as they see renting as expensive or ''dead money'' and cars for ease. But what about the here after?

      What about like female exiting the house? Does it have to be a matter of absolute necessity?
      Just wondering because I didn't really know this to be honest, I thought as long as the job is halal or as long as you're visiting somewhere that's obviously halal, and are dressed in the correct way, then it's okay?
      And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record”
      [al-An’aam 6:59]

        This topic is slightly different and the rulings are not necessarily that different for men and women

        What I mean is that haram things become ''halal'' in times of necessity. SO eating pork to save your life. Insurance or multi arty contracts are haram and specified as such

        In general day to day life we have permissability to do things ie visit the sick, relatives, buying food and even for entertainment (within rules)

        The only time it becomes an issue, as an example, is that we know we can go shopping for food etc but we are also warned about the markets yet people (men and women) go for window shopping etc or just walking around malls as an entertainment. For me that would be what the market hadiths say dont do

              Mum basically had a bit of a go at me for being Muslim, I didn't sit with the family when they had their Easter dinner also my sister's getting married and I said I'd attend the ceremony but not the reception (alcohol, music, dancing, pretty girls it was a no brainer really ) and mum made a bit of a fuss about my beliefs . I asked my sister when she was planning to have it and she's like next year

              Why make a fuss for something a year and a half away

                I'm so sorry br. kiwi.

                Have you ever listened to br. Tahir Khalid's account of how he was guided to Islam and the reaction of his friends and family. It was very encouraging for me to listen to, especially this weekend.

                I don't know if I have a link Inshallah, if I do, I'll come back and edit.

                Br. [MENTION=763]AbuMubarak[/MENTION] might know of him so I'll tag him Inshallah just in case.

                      That's the man, thanks for finding that.

                      I don't know if that's his testimony or not. He looked a bit younger the recording I saw, probably an old one.

                        There a party at my house in a month and I am not going stay around. I am worried that people will want to say hi to me but I don't like to talk to them for many reasons and I don't want to open my door bc I don't want any men to pass by and see me and I am worried a man may try to come with someone and say hi. I feel bad for them to know I am around but I don't want to talk to them, I don't want to hurt their feelings. Can anyone think of any ways I can avoid them? If they know I am there they will want to see me.

Therefore if the pains of this world tire you do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of duaa. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know; that verily Allah does not forget it."

                          I have this issue too sis. There are friends (not mine) in our house and who sometimes stay over so, I have to take all of my indoor and outdoors wear to the shower room and back every time and even going for a bathroom break I have to wear outer clothing.

                          I'd either find a sister you can spend some time with or if it's in the evening then I'd lock my door and make full use of headphones so that it's hard to hear beyond them. If you want, you could maybe put a polite Do Not Disturb sign on your door.

                          May Allah (swt) ease your affairs sister and reward you for your steadfastness and diligence, ameen

                                [MENTION=140612]Rifqah[/MENTION] Do you think it would be wrong to ask my mother to tell them I am in a night class while I am doing school work on my pc in my room? I mean, it's a class and the party is at night. I don't know if my mother would be okay with me putting that sign on my door.
