  1. Most people in Australia will be starting their fast on Sunday.
  2. اللهم صل على محمد وآل محمد وعجل فرجهم
  3. Thank you for this eloquently written poem. May Allah enable us all to practice kindness, peace and faithfulness in our lives.
  4. Salam sis, Don't change the way you dress in order to change other people's perception of you. I guarantee you that even if you do that, people will still find something negative to talk about. Do what you think is right not what you think people will like. Wear the Hijab to please the Creator not the creation. I know it can be hard not to care about what others think of you, but always keep in mind that with struggles there are rewards, especially if you are doing it for the sake of Allah.
  5. I have watched this! He makes some great points. I don't know why some females here felt the need to get defensive while none of the things you mentioned were wrong. Anyway.
  6. Yes, you are allowed to do that as long as it is one complete Surah after Surah Al-Hamd in each of the first two Rak'ats of obligatory prayers and it is not a Surah that contains verses of wajib Sajdah.
  7. So, in other words, there is no "female brain" or "male brain" as some like to say. We have the same brain, however, some brain structures vary slightly between males and females. Does that make sense?
  8. This falls within the "Nature vs. Nurture" debate. Do females behave differently because their brains are wired differently? Or is it because of environmental factors and the fact that they are raised differently? It is most likely that both play a role in shaping a person. Hence, we can't attribute their behavioural tendencies solely to the way their brains function. It is a product of both. However, the question is, which one has a bigger influence? Nature might initiate the process, but is it the main factor at play? It might be so, and this is because you see a similar pattern when observing different females. However, men and women do not have different brains. It is just that there are 'gender differences' in the human brain. Problems arise when men and women do not understand each other's biological or psychological/behavioural differences.
  9. Yes, it can only be done under certain conditions. Specifically, when one fears for their life, their wealth and the life of their family. However, one is not allowed to practice Taqiyyah if it would result in the death of another Muslim or if it would harm the religion of Islam.
  10. Ah, I remember that movie! I think it's already been translated to English, but not sure if it's been translated into any other languages.
  11. Imam Sadiq (AS) has said, " Drop carelessness, your belief will find a root. Wanting too much will send out the belief from the heart. Wanting too much, be it the wealth of this world or position, will dry out the root of the religion and the belief." The Prophet (PBUH) has said, " Wanting too much and the belief will never gather in one heart ." Beharul Anwaar, Vol. 67, page 304.

  12. Things haven't been going too well for me. Please guys...remember me in your prayers.
  13. Definitely! But HOW can we encourage it?!
