Great advice and insha'allah, couples out there can put these into action. We need to strengthen the marriages in our community! Anyways, nicely done once again. Really makes one want to start off marriage on the right foot or get back to the basics for those already entered into that stage of life. Jazak'Allahu Khairan as always! Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex girl friend that i love so much.

Back in , when gay online websites were pretty new, I was a year-old gay male who also had a very strong Christian faith. I had joined a popular gay dating website at the time where I was soon contacted by a very handsome year-old Malaysian lad. Despite the fact that we argued quite a bit at first, we continued to speak online, and eventually I started calling him on the phone, mostly landlines back in those days. I soon learned about calling cards and we spoke more and more. I found out he was an air steward for Malaysia Airlines.
In June, a prominent Australian Muslim cleric dismissed any discussion on same-sex marriage, stating that for Muslims the issue was scripturally clear. Likewise, in a recent live fatwa session, Toronto's Sheikh Kutty told a year-old gay youth, who identified himself as a former Muslim, that the scriptural position was not based on "changing fads or whims of society. In , Sheikh Kutty had equated gay people to those conditioned to theft, murder or pornography and prescribed prayer based therapy. However, given a changed socio-political climate, conservative Muslim authorities are finding it increasingly difficult to uphold such dismissive and curative approaches. Muslims for Progressive Values , like affirming Christian and Jewish denominations, have broken the consensus espoused by conservative Muslims that Abrahamic faiths prohibit same-sex unions.
