My mother languages is Turkish but i'm not really that great at it

Official languages here in Belgium are Dutch

French too (already receiving it 5 years)

German too (this year is my first year but i can understand it easily thanks to Dutch)

I know very well English (receiving it 2 years but i'm using it since i can remember ^_^ )

I am also good at Latin (3 years but we don't receiving speaking lessons)

For Islam i know a little bit of Arab but i really want to learn it, a lot of words of Arabic origin(and Persian) are still found easily in Turkish

I'm also interested in Japanese and i know a few words . B)

Maybe even Persian and/or Chinese :lol:

I think i know by now many Western languages .

  • Urdu (mother tongue) - the language that gave me my culture and my religion
  • English - had to learn as it was the medium of instruction from school to university; found it useful later
  • Punjabi - Lahori version (understand it easily but speak and read with difficulty) - I live in Lahore
  • Hindi (understand) - learnt it listening to samachar(news) on Aakash Vaani(All India Radio), not watching Bollywood movies ;)
  • Arabic - Egyptian dialect (reasonably understand, speak with much difficulty) -lived in Cairo for 5 years
  • Arabic - Qura'anic - read (learnt by the rote), understand a bit with difficulty

wow sis zamzam, ure almost as good and ambitious as me.

pity u dont know the best language in the world ie curry.

anyways, i kno dari coz my parents r afghan.

i kno curry coz i was born in india.

i kno english coz it was a main language bak then (which means i musta had the curry accent b4 coming 2 oz)

i kno farsi coz the iranians were sooo annoying and theyd speek farsi to me coz im afghan & i wudnt understand a word so this motivated me 2 learn their feminine language (although the formal farsi is hott).

i kno basic level french fluently lol coz i did it in yr 9, 10, 11, 12 and aced it in uni.

unfortunately i know swear words with perfect accent in many languages eg italian, chinese (cantonese), korean, armenian, arabic, etc.

i attempted to pik up italian twice at uni and even enrolled in it but i had 2 drop it both times for Allah knows why. (to me the sexiest language).

inshaAllah ill learn arabic by 2012

and will perfect my indian, farsi and french by 2015.

oooh, and i think the ugliest language(s) in the world are vietnamese and turkish.

English - very fluent, second language (short stay in the US)

Spanish - almost intermediate

    • I think an important question that nobodies asked is what kind of relationship do you have with your sister?  If you're not super close and just come out of nowhere with all these rules shes going to rebel and your parents could get involved- telling you to stay out of it. If this happens- she might think its okay because her parents are defending her.  If you're not close, then maybe this is an opportunity to be. Try and be really open and non judgemental and find out why she doesn't wish to observe hijab. It may just be down to ignorance: she simply doesn't know its importance in islam. You'd be surprised what kind of interesting conversations you'd have.  My brothers beliefs are fairly different to mine and fairly often we have interesting discussions/debates about all kinds of topics. He's also very open minded so I feel reassurance/comfort if I ever need to ask advice or information about a certain topic. 
    • Salaam, I have a difficult time finding things related to Sayed Khamenei on the internet-would you by chance be able to provide a link for the mentioned Q&A, in sha Allah? Thanks!
    • It's simple., One sect follows Islam as Allah swt and His Prophet (pbuh) wanted Muslims to follow while the other one is trying to tell Allah swt and the Prophet pbuh what they think should be part of Islam. So if you follow the former then you know you are on Haq and if you are following the latter then you are doomed. Allah swt states in Quran that only He appoints Caliphs. If you look at one sect they abide by it where as the other one have their own man-made Caliphs clearly against the Quran. It's really not that difficult.

      Dear brothers and sisters  Can someone please tell me what the following dream means.  Dreaming that your nephew is loosing his hair.    I heard it means something bad so I am a little worried.    JazakAllah
