  1. Toddler nutrition

    Walaykum Salam, Picky eating is completely normal in toddlers and shouldn't be a concern. Try to minimize distractions and set regular meal time patterns. Toddlers often imitate older siblings. Remember appetite generally goes down at around 12 months. Allow their independence and curiosity. Aversion to meat in toddlers is very common behavioural concern for parents. Don't force your child to eat meat if he/she doesn't want it. There shouldn't be a power struggle when it comes to eating. Use alternative vegetarian or vegan options. Food complementation is also a great way to get complete proteins. No don't give a toddler smaller amounts of vitamin beverage. Iron anemia is the most common deficiency in North American toddlers but iron toxicity is also the most common toxicity in toddlers. He won't take the chewable gummies either? Since he doesn't eat bean and meat good sources of iron rich foods for toddlers are fortified cereals (often very high in iron), raisins, green peas and dried apricots. Fibre, iron, calcium, zinc, vitamin D and fluid are important for toddlers.

    If you could ask God one question what would it be?
  3. Ammar Nakshawani on sex slaves

    Thank you so much for your explanation. I really appreciate it. It did clarify some stuff. I have a couple more questions if you don't mind. Do you know why the particular reason for the shorter iddha period is? Would this not interrupt the wife's duty to her husband then if she has to maintain iddha from prior relationships? In addition, considering her husband, doesn't this go against the nature of men as explained from an Islamic perspective, if a married slave was shared? Does the concept of relationships with a slave being halal without marriage apply to a female master and her slave? I realize this is more 21st century thinking but consent is an issue discussed in Islam. For example, a female must give consent to a marriage, she can't be forced into a marriage. So without the slave's permission it was allowed? I understand slavery but this concept is difficult to understand because it seems like borderline zulm to me to treat someone like that if they don't want to. There's a difference between slavery and sexual slavery I'd say. Yes, it was a global phenomena but many things that were practiced were banned by Islamic. I understand slavery couldn't be banned but sexual slavery forcefully just seems like zulm. Wasalam
  4. Ammar Nakshawani on sex slaves

    Is this permissible without her consent or against her will? Also, in terms of a female master with a male slave, relationships aren't permissible right?
  5. Ammar Nakshawani on sex slaves

    I was really confused about what he was saying too because it went against what I had previously researched. But what about his point regarding iddha (e.g., if the slave was previously married)? Does a slave need to maintain iddha prior to relationships with the master? Honestly, this is such a sensitive topic that I have a hard time coming to terms with. It's so hard for me to accept this is Islamically allowed.

    I've heard from multiple people he answers Facebook messages much faster than emails but don't quote me on that.

  8. should i do Muta?

    Persian culture is probably the most westernized in comparison to other Muslim countries in terms of marriages. It is extremely rare to live with your parents after marriage. I actually don't know anyone who does this in Iran or the West. Sometimes you may live in the same apartment building as your in-laws but that's because traditionally the husband's family provides a house/apartment for the couple and the wife's family provides furnishing and everything inside the apartment/house. Usually many families purchase apartments for their sons in the same building when they buy their own. That's the closest you'll get to living with your parents. Most Iranian families I know have a great relationship with their in-laws. I'd even say some respect and are kinder to their daughter-in-law than their own daughter to make her feel welcomed and a part of the family lol. My grandmother and aunts treat their daughter-in-laws like princesses. My uncle's wife when she lost her mother she said, "I can't even complain and I'm at peace because Allah has blessed me with two mothers (referring to her mother-in-law as one) and I know even if my mother can never be replaced, I have another mother and for that I'm always thankful". Of course there are always exceptions, but the in-law relationship is complicated historically in various cultures due to many reasons, a lot of it has to do with psychology, but it's changing everyday. Very similar to Persian culture.
  9. should i do Muta?

    Not commenting on this specific case but just wanted to mention that staying with someone if you're unhappy for the sake of children only is not always the better option. It's not healthy for the parents or the kids. Sometimes it's healthier for children to have divorced parents on good terms who co-parent respectfully and responsibly. Happier parents usually provide a better up bringing for their children whether that be with their children's other parent or not. Being in an unhappy marriage doesn't necessarily set a better example or provide a more stable household for the children than a "broken" household. As taboo as divorce is in many cultures, it simply means a relationship didn't work out. Just something to consider.
  10. Praying on an airplane

    All are correct except the last one. Number of rakats stay them same when you pray in a sitting position. Of course while travelling zuhr, asr and isha are two rakats.
  11. Praying on an airplane

    If you can figure out a way to pray privately on a plane that you're comfortable with then alhamdulilAllah but prayer is obligatory and it's not acceptable to not pray just to avoid publicly praying. In regard to others not willingly submitting to Allah, maybe they haven't had the opportunity to learn about Islam and you publicly praying may be an invitation for them to inquire more about Islam. Sayed Sistani says:
  12. Praying on an airplane

    This depends. For example, if your flight boarded 15 minutes before fajr you can pray fajr right when you get on the plane. However, the sky is a decent indicator of prayer times. According to Sayed Sistani's website:
  13. Praying on an airplane

    I've prayed on planes several times before with no issues. If they're not comfortable it's usually because they're not sure what you're doing. Just be nice and explain to them in a friendly conversation, you'll be surprised at the positive reactions you get.
  14. North America: Eid discussion

    I was just at Al-Huda and verbally everyone at the mosque was saying eid is on Sunday.
