  1. In that sense fluency might be harder to come across. Usually language acquisition is rated on a scale ranging based on ability and knowledge. One is the IRL scale which the FSI uses -- I think. Another really popular one is the ECL test, though I really have no idea how either works or what the test which one takes for them would look like. Your own gauging of where you are is a good metric, you really have an idea of your own skills. In reality most people won't be able to pick up any book written in their own language and not get stuck reading it, some works are just tough pieces of literat

  2. Salam. We know you did not make the video. I think @ShiaChat Mod was trying to point out that if you spelled words wrong in the title on porpous, then that was really clever of you. It got our attention!

  5. Before the interview, it's smart to contact those who will be conducting the interview, and make it clear that you can't shake hands if any female extends her hands. I think most hiring managers will understand and will respect you for letting them know well in advance. Don't make things awkward on the day because it'll affect your interview (you won't be in the right frame of mind). Keep in mind that recruitment managers are human beings too, and if you awkwardly refuse a handshake, it'll affect how they behave towards you in a very subtle way (not that they're purposefully going to do i

  7. Some experiences in life taught me (the hard way) that you cannot say that you speak a language unless you are able to communicate effectively in that language to a native speaker, to defend your life and rights, in your own words in that language, pick any book written in that language and not get stuck reading and understanding it, write exactly what you mean to communicate etc. I cannot do these in Farsi, Arabic or Urdu, even though I can read, write, get the general gist of all of them. And of course, the ultimate test, poetry

  19. Don't do that... they still understand sex boundaries and that males are generally more comfortable with males, and females generally more comfortable with females... Most will just think that you just follow a stricter version of this. Though, you're correct that there will always be some women who get offended because their immediate mindset is that it's 'another' sexist Islamic thing. 'Women aren't good enough to shake men's hands??'. Apparently, their secular liberal mindset impedes them from seeing handshakes as bilateral, lol. Teaching them about Islamic beliefs won't change their femini

  21. You're conflating folk tradition ( some quite recent as " Rudolph " only showed up in a children's song within the last half-century or so and the present incarnation of the American " Santa"...based on the Scandanavian immigrants' version of the actual 3rd century Saint Nicholas ...is also fairly recent ,within the last 200 years, and not necessarily commonly found outside of North America) with the actual religion. You don't need Santa Claus and reindeer to celebrate Christmas and much of the Catholic world doesn't have them. You don't need any of the folk customs that have grown up in vari

  22. As an Iraqi from Kut I do not support the protest. I can support a protest against the government but this protest is not against the government it's against Iran. And how bad can you people get? It was like yesterday isis was standing outside Baghdad when no one helped us except Iran. Iran is the one who supported us against isis and it's thanks to them that we could defead isis. And of course they have already forgot about that and they're already out to kill the one nation that saved us. You know that in Islam you must be thankful and even try to give someone back if they helped you with s

  23. The Zionist project does not have it's own official borders. This is part of the problem with it- it is by it's nature expansionist. Thankfully Hezbollah defeated it in Southern Lebanon otherwise it would have ended up in the same position that Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan Heights find themselves in. The below is a translation by a Jewish Professor of Chemistry who worked in Jerusalem and became anti-Zionist of an essay written by a leading Zionist ideologue in an important Zionist academic journal. https://www.globalresearch.ca/greater-Israel-the-zionist-plan-for-the-middle-east

  24. All relatively, imagine being proud of being a general of Imam Mahdi (ajtfs) ? As a Lebanese nationality holder I can openly say I am proud of my country being blessed by the victories Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) granted it through the help of Iran. I consider it simple thankfulness. But it is not the matter of the topic here, I was pointing how arabs become actors of the Plan as soon as it is screenplayed without thinking. After all, all eyes are now turned to Iran, and because of what ? Because of the corruption of Iraqi and Lebanese leaders. How ironic isn't it.

  27. Great replies. As far as contacting interviewers directly at least in health profession settings, they do not notify you on who's going to interview you unfortunately. Also wearing gloves does seem kind of awkward as usually I see people take their gloves off (winter etc.) before shaking someones hand (it may imply that someones hands are dirty thus I wear gloves etc.. of course that would not be the reason why one wears the gloves but people make assumptions.) . But I certainly understand that when ones a doc for example they should certainly wear gloves before examining patients

  30. I can speak Urdu and English. I'm currently learning Farsi and I've made a lot of progress. You learn so much about different cultures by learning their language. It makes you more accepting and open-minded. Like I respect Persians more since I started learning Farsi and I find their culture beautiful. I also plan to learn Arabic in the future inshallah.

    Is zina only penetration?

    Salam, Isn't being intimate with a woman whom you are not married to considered Zina? If so, why does it matter if there is penetration? One is recieving haram pleasure.

  36. Ruling 726. As previously mentioned, the time for the ʿishāʾ prayer for a person under normal circumstances ends at midnight. The night is the period from the beginning of sunset until dawn. Ruling 727. If someone wilfully does not perform maghrib or ʿishāʾ prayers by midnight, he must, based on obligatory precaution, perform them before the time of the morning call to prayer (adhān) without making the intention of whether he is performing them in their prescribed time or not (adāʾ or qaḍāʾ).

    Lebanon Protests 2019

    Confessional political systems distribute power to the different sects/religions of a jurisdiction proportionally. Both Iraq and Lebanon have these systems and they both ingrain sectarianism as opposed to a technocratic political system.

  42. it's because Christians have upper hand in Lebanon confessional system then Sunnis & Shias and Hizbullah are at end of list but now anyobody in Lebanon is blaming Hizbullah for every corruption & shortcoming & pro israeli parties are seeking for more share in power because Christians after defeating ISIS by Hizbullah & protection of Christians become the best allly of Hizbullah despite little share of Shias & Hizbullah in power that pro Israeli parties from all religions speciallily Maronite that is an old ally of Israel are seeking to change this situation.

  44. Deed (العمل) also includes going to the toilet to empty your bowels and having intercourse - when you recite the supplications for those acts when on the toilet do you have to verbally say Aliyun Waliyullah there too or else your Du'a is not accepted? What kind of argument is this - this is worse than Sunni Qiyas. Do you believe for any act of worship that you do for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) you have to verbally add Aliyun Waliyullah in there? When you do the talbiyyah for Hajj do you have to say Labbayk Ya Ali as well? When you recite the marriage contract and do the insha' of the 'aqd

    Sadaqa Meat

    Well he could be giving it as a token of appreciation for the work you all do. I think it's a very nice thing to do especially on a weekly basis. I don't see it as Sadaqa at all. I see it as a decent and wise employer showing appreciation and building loyalty with his employees.
