  1. Past hour
  2. good, and yes 95% traders on wall street arent real traders and they just thrive by cheating or manipulating markets, because they lack strategy to make money from real markets.
  3. I am clarifying that the problem is quoting Abu Hanifa as the source, since this is to do with Sheikh Khaled Al-Gendy.
  4. Definitely I'd spend my time in repentance, making amends with people, saying joyful goodbyes to my family, and doing as many good deeds as I could. But I try (not always successfully) to do that anyway, except the goodbyes part.
  5. But you do know there is no such thing as non alcoholic beverages, right? Non alcoholic beverages have less than 0.5% alcohol.
  6. Fevered media speculation about Donald Trump’s psychological motivations and psychiatric diagnosis has recently encouraged mental health professionals to disregard the usual ethical constraints against diagnosing public figures at a distance. They have sponsored several petitions and a Feb. 14 letter to The New York Times suggesting that Mr. Trump is incapable, on psychiatric grounds, of serving as president. Most amateur diagnosticians have mislabeled President Trump with the diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder. I wrote the criteria that define this disorder, and Mr. Trump doesn’t meet them. He may be a world-class narcissist, but this doesn’t make him mentally ill, because he does not suffer from the distress and impairment required to diagnose mental disorder. Mr. Trump causes severe distress rather than experiencing it and has been richly rewarded, rather than punished, for his grandiosity, self-absorption and lack of empathy. It is a stigmatizing insult to the mentally ill (who are mostly well behaved and well meaning) to be lumped with Mr. Trump (who is neither). Bad behavior is rarely a sign of mental illness, and the mentally ill behave badly only rarely. Psychiatric name-calling is a misguided way of countering Mr. Trump’s attack on democracy. He can, and should, be appropriately denounced for his ignorance, incompetence, impulsivity and pursuit of dictatorial powers. His psychological motivations are too obvious to be interesting, and analyzing them will not halt his headlong power grab. The antidote to a dystopic Trumpean dark age is political, not psychological. ALLEN FRANCES Coronado, Calif.

  7. Hameedah, You do realize how wise and kind you are. I prepared a cabbage salad with tomatoes. I'm fasting today because I needed a break from thinking of food. I made lentils with Italian rice and sprinkled fried onions on top. I'm going to break my fast with dates from the holy city of Mashhad. Drink 2-3 cups of water. Do salat. I will start off with salad and mix it with a tahini and garlic dressing. @shia farm girl I'm so happy you are caring and supportive of my journey. Having you relate to me is helping me know I'm not alone. I have a lot of demons I need to tackle, I go to food for comfort from other real issues that I need to face. Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I know some of you are making duas for me, please continue to do so. God will listen to you since you are faithful brothers and sisters. @Shandor Your thread of recipes on a budget is a wonderful source to get future ideas. Thanks for your time and effort.
  8. Now l forgot my "burning question". And SC cheers. You are welcome.
  9. The difference is if the drink has not fermented you won't become intoxicated regardless of the amount, it is the same view as the shia view.
  10. This is the strangest nonsense I've read in a while. Its like saying, "Oh it's okay to smoke pot, as long as you don't get too high."
  11. That re-ject-o-pee of Shandor's will make a hog sick. BLAAAAAAAAAH Here is the Taste Test: After it cools, will the ants eat it? And people reject my sauerkraut and onions for that????? . sheeeesh
  12. The aim is not to paint all Wall-Street traders with one brush. I have been careful in my word-selection to limit discussion to certain types of people and dealings [whether they are within Wall-St. or beyond]. Maybe the title has confused you. It is mostly a pun based on the movie with the same name. However, it is undoubted that an age which will be dog eat dog in its aggressiveness and ferocity is alluded to in the Ahadith. In any case, if you had read the whole piece you would have seen that it is a commentary on what was said by the Prophet about the signs of the aforementioned age. They include: 1. << the well-off will cling on tightly to that which is in his hands >> i.e. stinginess and greed. 2. << deals are conducted with the one in distress, while the messenger of Allah prohibited the sale of the one in distress >> 3. << the messenger of Allah prohibited the deceptive sale >> If you do not recognize these three traits as features of the modern economic system then you can choose to benefit us with your knowledge and elaborate on it.
  13. And he has this fatwa all because of Umars love for nabeedh
  14. In this case, I advice you to watch how to kill us softly documentary, on youtube , and you'll understand more that you are right
  15. Imagine if you knew the exact day that you would die. Would you spend the rest of your life becoming a Godly person or would you spend it depressed and not willing to change yourself?
  16. Where do you have most social support mechanisms, like family? What do you do for a living? Where's your source of income? Where are you settled? Where do you feel comfortable? What about your spouse? All questions to consider, and would greatly impact which option is preferable.
  17. Find a place "Safe, Secure and Sane" "Safe and Secure" leaves the Moon out. "Sane" leaves the Earth out. Circa 1970. An American couple decided to do this. So they picked a remote island. lt was The Falklands. That was invaded in 1982.
  18. @Shaykh Patience101 @wolverine @hameedeh @Hassan Y @Shian e Ali @Mansur Bakhtiari @sidnaq @gajarkahalva According to the Hanafi madhab, all intoxicants are forbidden. They allowed the drinking of nabeedh as long as it had not fermented. As for the hadd for drinking, this is debated, and one is punished if he is no longer sober. Conclusion therefore is oversimplified in the media which presents that Abu Hanifa said it's ok to drink alcohol. The views of the sheikh does not conform with the orthodox Hanafi madhab. Rather all intoxicants are forbidden, and if someone does drink before fermentation then it is permissible in the case of nabeedh only. If one drank it after fermentation it is still haram but there is no hadd unless he was no longer sober. This is no different to what the scholars narrated from the Imams عليهم اللسلام. دعائم الإسلام: وعن جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام أنه قال الحلال من النبيذ أن تنبذه وتشربه من يومه ومن الغد فإذا تغير فلا تشربه ونحن نشربه حلوا قبل أن يغلى
  19. From the 70s: What if Washington threw-a-war (like "through-a-party") and nobody came?
  20. They don't have to tell a patient exactly how much longer they have to live. It's a courteous estimation. They can share information with family members if the patient consents.
  21. Today
  22. I often think about my future absent-mindedly , and one of the questions that keeps popping up is : Would it be more wise for me to raise my future children in the east or the west? Please share your thoughts and oppinions on this.
  23. My mom said the same thing to me, in attempt to get me to lose weight. It's wrong and completely untrue. Most big people have no problem finding love. I've had a serious weight problem and I managed to lose all the weight, not once, but twice. I didn't lose the weight for a future husband or for anybody else. I lost the weight for myself (50 pounds, which would be 3 and half stone.) Here's my story on how to lose weight:
  24. Really? I guess knowing that you have few weeks or months left is good because it gives you time to repent, but knowing the exact date? I thought they are required to tell patient because they are always saying: I cannot share patient's medical information with anyone other than patient.
