"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

Part 1: Filipino Islam will outlast its fanatics

Business will eventually prevail over fundamentalist garbage, and push it out of these trading zones

Part 2: The Moro-Filipina will stand in the way of fanatics

Moro-Filipinas are often independent of their men, assertive, vocal, see the hijab as just another way of projecting their identity, and definitely, are major players in the locality.

FAST FACTS: Eid al-Fitr
UPDATED July 29, 2014
As our Muslim countrymen celebrate this solemn feast, get to learn a few facts about Eid al-Fitr

Muslim Marriage - Polygamy - Early Marriage - Divorce

Code of Muslim Personal Laws in the Philippines, concerning family law and institutions Polygamy, nikah, divorce, paternity, filiation, nafaqah, registration, succession, and constitution and jurisdiction of shari'ah courts

Remark:

There´s still Early Marriage: Marriage Age: minimum marriage age 15 years for males and puberty for females, female is presumed to have attained puberty at 15 years; Sharia District Court may authorise marriage of female between 12 and 15 years if she has attained puberty.

Don´t do it and putting lives at risk

Look the rules HERE

Polygamy involves sexual activity with mutiple partners without or with marriage. When a man is married to more than one wife at a time, it is called polygyny. When a woman is married to more than one husband at a time, it is called polyandry.

In the Philippines polygamy is only legal for Muslims.

Polyandry can never happen in the Philippines, although there are reported cases in the barangays where a brother has a secret affair with his sister in-law or a sister with his brother in-law. This is absolutely not allowed in the Philippines infact it is a crime and worst some Filipino families indulge in a more serious crime of incestuous affair.

Muslim Father, Catholic Mother: What About the Child?
