In Surah Maryam of the Holy Qur’an, Allah provided Prophet Isa’s (peace be upon him) mother Maryam (peace be upon her) with fresh dates when she was experiencing discomfort and pain during the final stages of her pregnancy.“Shake the trunk of the palm toward you and fresh, ripe dates will drop down onto you.” (Surah Maryam: verse 25)The significance of the date palm as a source of nutrition and sustenance is evident in the statement narrated by Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him): “The Prophet said there is a tree among the trees which is similar to a Muslim (in goodness), and that is the date palm tree.” (Bukhari)In another Hadith, the Prophet stressed the importance of dates as a major food item, saying, “People in a house without dates are in a state of hunger.” (Muslim)The excellence of date palms is also referred to in the following verse of the Holy Qur’an: “And in the earth are tracts (diverse though) neighboring, and gardens of vines and fields sown with corn, and palm trees — growing out of single roots or otherwise: watered with the same water, yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat.
Behold, verily in these things there are signs for those who understand.” (Surah Al-Raad, verse 4)The date is also referred to in the Holy Qur’an as one of the blessings that would be offered in Paradise.

For example, in 4 we read that God is the only law maker (hakaman), so anyone who upholds any source of law other than God's law (Quran) is guilty of committing shirk Or do they have 'shuraka' (partners) who legislate for them religious laws which were not authorised by God?
If it were not for a decisive Word, they would have been judged immediately.
There are not enough Muslim men out there, and interfaith marriage is one of the few viable options, and most women rule out the idea of marrying someone from their home country as it does not work out culturally.
To get this out of the way: Karim is not a “Muslim name.” It is an Arabic name that Muslims name their children, since Karim is one of the 99 names of Allah, but the word and name predate Islam.They explain this male biased innovation by a number of un-Quranic justifications.Some say that this privilege is given to the man because the child takes the religion of his father and not his mother, and thus a Muslim man may marry a non Muslim woman but still have the child raised as a Muslim, while as if a Muslim woman married a Christian man for example, the child would be raised as a Christian. Do not (you men) marry the mushrikaat (women who commit shirk) until they believe; a believing slave woman is better than a mushrikah even if you like her, and do not (you women) marry the mushrikeen until they believe; a believing slave man is better than a mushrik even if you like him.The sole intent of this essay is to understand the struggle of “Single American Muslim women” and keeping them within the fold by expanding the fold to be reflective of God’s boundlessness and extending Prophet Muhammad’s mercy to the entire universe.This article brings serious discussion about marriage of single Muslim women in America in general and women in their forties and fifties in particular.
