In reply to brother MohYam,  
 
Please check Ayaat 22 to 24 of Sura Al-Nisaa where all those women not allowed to marry with are listed. I think, according to Quran, any woman except those can be married by an eligible candidate, subject to mutual agreement.  
 
God bless you.

In sora al ahzab ayat no 50 ,there is special permision to Nabi to marriage with 1st cosin who migrated with him .This permission is not for momineen,because for mominneen ,Allah already given details at other place in quran .Kindly guide me the marriage permission with 1st cousin for momineen keeping in viwe the ayat no 22-24 of alnisa regards.  

Comments by: moazzam On 03 March 2010

2/168: It is not the matter of eating drinking, rather, the guidance to implement the Allah' commandment/instructions of Islamic ideology[wahy].  
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ كُلُواْ مِمَّا فِي الأَرْضِ حَلاَلاً طَيِّباً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ  
O mankind, implement/adopt whatever is befitted and suitable in the matter of general public and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.  
الأَرْضِ=General public, antonym is Assama' mean upper cadre of society[elite class]  
كُلُواْ= root is "ا ک ل" mean to take/to get  
the subject of quran is HUMAN RIGHTS not to teach you eating drinking[even all animal know what to eat]  
there in this verse two types of instructions has been given  
First one is take/ whatever is halal and tayyab ,second one is restriction not to follow the foot-steps of Shetan.  
just think shetan is not instructing about eating/drinking, rather, shetan gives an ideology which is anti wahy e ilahi.  
169  
إِنَّمَا يَأْمُرُكُم بِالسُّوءِ وَالْفَحْشَاءِ وَأَن تَقُولُوا عَلَى اللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ  
For he commands you the inappropriateness and other than Allah's wahy[commandments], and that you should say of Allah that of which you have no knowledge  
السوء = the inappropriate  
الفحش =the ideology other than wahy refer to verses 7/1-23  
170  
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اتَّبِعُوا مَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ قَالُوا بَلْ نَتَّبِعُ مَا أَلْفَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ آبَاءَنَا ۗ أَوَلَوْ كَانَ آبَاؤُهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَهْتَدُونَ  
When it is said to them: "Follow what Allah has revealed[wahy]:" They say: "No! we shall follow the ways of our ABAA." What! even though their ABAA Were void of wisdom and guidance? In the following verses, "170 etc the verses are regarding the constitution of the Quran.

WHAT IS HARAAM? 5:3 (PART 1 & 2))  
By Heer Saleti  
 
 
Keep in mind :- 3:94 invent a lie and attribute it to Allah, they are indeed unjust wrong-doers.  
 
 
حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةُ  
Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, 5:3  
 
notice, no word for meat , animal or food , different translations have added these words in the translation. (why?)  
 
Al mayata is a proper noun, I.E it cannot be taken as common indefinite noun. this is a special kind of mayat (DEATH) which is not the common physical death we all know about. The topics in the Quran are not physical, but about human relations and their love affection towards each other and about the principles that are essentials in a society. If these principles are ruined, the society will become dead. Let’s have a look 8:24  
 
O you who believe! Answer Allah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he () calls you to that which will give you life, 8:24  
 
In this ayah is talking to living people, but it is emphasizing that the Messenger call to you in order to GIVE YOU LIFE.  
 
 
It should be obvious that a person, who is already alive, is not getting another life, but something that teach him character and conduct.  
 
Let’s have another look at another ayah 6:122  
 
Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out? Thus to those without faith their own deeds seem pleasing.  
 
Here you can see for yourself, this is a person who was dead but got life, Noor and now this Noor is his life. And with this Noor he walk among society  
 
In other words, this AL MAYATA is for people who have developed a DEAD CHARACTER AND CONDUCT.  
 
 
 
This is the “lifeless” life, DEAD LIFE which is dispossessed from the elevating principles a human being get when he is lead out from the darkness to the light 14:1-5-  
 
Such a lifestyle results in a death which is embraced while you are alive, and thus makes you a Sleepwalker/zombie. To adopt this and deprive oneself from the principles of peace, humanity brotherhood is made HARAAM.  
 
 
In reality, deprivation from Rooh, Ilm, Character and conduct is the real death of an individual and a society. This is why the Quran is presented which is given to lead mankind out from the self-caused “death” /the depth of darkness in order to make us  
 
Muslim = in peace, peace providers  
 
Mumin= safety security providers  
 
Muttaqi= Who knows the consequences (end results) of good and bad deeds [Muqafate e amaal] ,those who institute peace (Amn) through the parameters of nature, they establish a system under the orders of God and they will spend natural gifts provided to them impartially  
 
 
Muslim, momin and MUTTAQI are not names but attributes, characteristics of those who live by and implement the Quran. It can be a sikh, hindu, jew, pagan, atheist or Christian  
 
’’کَانَ النَّاسُ اُمَّۃً وَاحِدَۃ‘‘  
 
ALNAAS IS UMMATAN WAHDA, MANKIND IS ONE. ************************************************  
 
 
 
FLESH OF SWINE, PART TWO  
 
IS FLESH OF SWINE FORBIDDEN, AND WERE PEOPLE TRANSFORMED TO PIGS AND APES?  
 
5:59-60  
 
قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ هَلْ تَنقِمُونَ مِنَّا إِلاَّ أَنْ آمَنَّا بِاللّهِ وَمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْنَا وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلُ وَأَنَّ أَكْثَرَكُمْ فَاسِقُونَ  
 
 
قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُم بِشَرٍّ مِّن ذَلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِندَ اللّهِ مَن لَّعَنَهُ اللّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ أُوْلَـئِكَ شَرٌّ مَّكَاناً وَأَضَلُّ عَن سَوَاء السَّبِيلِ  
 
From these verses one can see that those who are called monkeys and pigs are the ones who are extreme and utterly misled.  
 
IF IT IS ABOUT PHYSICAL TRANSFORMATION, THEIR ACTIONS AND BEHAVIOURS WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED.  
 
In the next verse 5:61 it is said that When they come to you they say they believe, but in fact they enter with kufar and leave with the same kufar/mindset.  
 
IF THEY WHERE PHYSICALLY CHANGED INTO APES AND SWINE, THEY WOULD NOT ENTER TO SAY THEY "BELIEVE". HAVE YOU HEARD PIGS AND APES SAY WE "BELIEVE"- FURTHER THEIR MINDSET IS ADDRESSED WHILE THEY TRY TO CONVINCE YOU ABOUT THEIR SINCERITY.  
 
Same goes for 7:166, when one can see that they are being warned and told about the divine message (7.164.165), and they rejected it and ignored it (7.166). So after the truth coming to them and they still rejected it , their behaviour and mindset is equalized with "monkeys" and "swine" because of their disabilities to understand and grasp something obvious and concrete/measurable.  
 
READERS MAY NOTICE THAT HERE THE PROPER NOUN FOR AL KHINZEER IS USED, SO THE QURAN GAVE A DETAILED DEFINITION FOR THE PROPER NOUN KHINZEER.  
 
THIS WILL SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF WHAT AL KHANZEER IN 5:3.6 ACTUALLY IS.  
 
IT IS THE ABOVE DESCRIBED PEOPLE WITH THE GIVEN ATTRIBUTES BY THE QURAN ITSELF.  
 
MYSTERY WILL BE SOLVED WHEN WE NOW LOOK AT THE WORD "AL LAHM"/ MEAT  
 
LAHM MEANS TO KNIT, TO JOIN TOGETHER,TO BE CLOSELY UNITED, MANY THREADS JOINED TOGETHER. USED FOR FLESH BECAUSE HOW IT IS JOINED TOGETHER. (lughat allama Rashid numani)  
 
SO HARMUN/ FORBIDDEN FOR YOU IS TO JOIN TOGETHER WITH THE AL KHANZEERS (WITH THE ABOVE MENTIONED QUALITIES)  
 
 
Now when it is used as an indefinite noun other places, the context will clear out what it means there. Remember that the other words are also proper nouns, so we will have to see what THE BLOOD; THE CARRION, THE MIATA actually is.....  
 
PUT THE BASIC MEANINGS OF KHINZEER QADRA AND RIJS AN SEE WHAT THIS BEHAVIOUR IS EQUALIZED TO.  
a course of action is proposed which has guidance for the whole nation, and for every one, at any level of education. The later verses of this Chapter are in conformity with those verses of Chapter Nisaa that follow Verse No.43.  
 
three different conditions that Allah has described in the verses are meant solely to teach us the optimum utilization of his awards and blessings:- 5:6  
 
1) The first condition describes a state of total awareness of divine commandments, when man stands up to implement and enforce them. This was signified by the words, “iza qumtum ila as-salaat” – when you stand up to enforce the supremacy of divine laws;  
 
2) The second condition describes a state of ignorance regarding Ehkamate Elahi whereas the Guidance is completely unknown to a person. This conditions is called : “wa in kuntum junuban” ;  
 
3) The third condition described is when a person doesn't peosess the knowledge of Ehkamate Elahi, but divine guidance has become his resolve and objective; and he has been suffering from some kind of deficiency, or following some other commandments or such teachings that were of a lower intellectual level, or was inflicted by mental weakness. Because of that he was not able to comprehend the core of Ehkamate Elahi.  
 
“MAREEZ” (the sick one).The first word that comes up is “mareedh”. The word ‘Maradh” is not only used for physical weakness, but also for mental, moral and educational deficiency.  
 
“SAFAR” (Journey)”the word ‘safar’ is not exclusively used for a journey by land. Rather, the change of ideology or stance is also called ‘safar.  
 
“AL-GHAAIT” (The lower level/the depression):As Ghaait also means to come up from a lower level, or a lower valley, therefore, it was adopted in this Verse as coming back from a lavatory. Quran is a book of values, not of particular methods of human excretions in different time periods  
 
“AL-NISAA’A” in 4:43: The Root ( و س ن ) means weakness, and at this point the word is preceded by (ال ) which means that some ordinary “nisaa’a” is not being discussed, but some particular “nisaa’a” is mentioned. It also confirms that nisaa’a here does not signify women, but rather gives the meaning of ideological weakness  
 
“TAYAMMAM” : meanings are ‘intention’ and ‘target’.  
 
“SAEEDAN TAYYIBAN” : The Root of Saeedan, which means ‘height’. And Tayyab means pure  
 
PERFORM TAYAMMAM FROM SAYADAN TAYABAN  
 
COMMIT TO A TARGET, AIM, PURPOSE WHICH IS PURE AND ELEVATED INTELLECTUALLY-  
 
“MAA’A” : In the physical world, it is the water that washes and cleans bodies. But in the world of thought and ideology, cleansing is done through some very pure learning. To this end, for cleansing of evil concepts, the water of divine guidance (Wahi) has been offered, which evolves the self.  
 
Sura anfaal :- “wa yunazzala alayikum min as-samaa’i maa’an  
 
“And he sends down from the skies water by which to cleanse you ----  
 
This is the objective of “maa’a min as-samaa’i”, meaning heavenly water. The task of keeping the hearts joined together cannot be done by rain water. Neither can this water work for keeping a man’s resolves firm, nor for saving him from Satanic tendencies. This can only be done by divine guidance, or by learning of some higher values, whether based upon Quran or other divine books.
