  1. (salam) Equally could you prove he knew he would have become blind or wouldn't have stopped had he known. As you said in the same message we have no right to judge people without knowing their intentions and whilst we can surmise his position, we don't really know whether he knew he was becoming blind or whether it was sudden or gradual. Moreover we have hadith of our Imams (a.s) crying non stop and even crying blood with no indication of eventual damage to the eyes.
  2. (salam) That's hardly the way it goes. Timing is important and a lot of young women do want to complete there studies, especially when they have already put time and effort into their education. Whilst the OP seems to be very supportive and InshAllah was sincere in his desires to help her, a lot of the time support from the husband and family is offered but then retracted after marriage when the girl ultimately has to deal with it unless she wants to seperate with her husband. Moreover he promised her 0% problems but realistically noone can do that. As for the original question about marrying
  3. (salam) ^Found 'desi' in the oxford dictionary :D "Desi: A person of Indian, Pakistani, or Bangladeshi birth or descent who lives abroad." http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/desi
  4. (salam) Usually women and men only find out after trying and failing to conceive that they are unable to conceive naturally. However there are numerous conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and disorders of gonadal function ie amenorrhoea which are associated with infertility in women and can be diagnosed prior to marriage. Symptoms such as lack of menstruation, excessive hair growth, insulin resistance and acute pain can indicate these conditions prompting further testing and a diagnosis. Sometimes infertility does not occur in all cases of a condition but rather occurs
  5. (salam) Or you could just buy a house in hell
  6. (wasalam) Just keep doing what you're doing, keep going to gym, continue your hobbies, keep remembering Allah swt and keep your Imaan strong. People who say six months are enough have probably not been as emotionally invested in a long term relationship. There are stages in healing and although you can't see it because there is still a lot of pain, you are healing slowly. You've admitted that time has helped you heal a little and you now want to forget her which is another step in the healing process- you no longer want to hang on. You were in contact for 7 years, together for 3 years and marr
  7. (salam) Kind Fahd For Fahd, Khomeini was a danger because the Ayatollah had called the Saudi monarchy “un-Islamic,” though Saudi Arabia was one of Saddam’s chief financiers during his war on Iran. But Saudi-Iranian relations were never good. Fahd’s police kept a close watch on Iranian pilgrims, and in 1987 some of them raised placards criticizing the USA and Israel just outside the House of Allah, the Ka’aba, in Mukkah. It should be mentioned that according to Islamic tradition Allah has absolutely forbidden bloodshed in any form or quantity (haram) in and outside theKa’aba. That’s why the Ka’
  8. salam) I was speaking to an Iraqi scholar about this and its all about understanding the context of the time. The 'jilbab' was used to describe a non-form fitting garment and is a little bit different to the abaya we have today but the principles are similar.The women of ranking at the time used to wear outer garments but it used to be left open in the manner of a jacket. They used to cover their hair too but the head dress used to go behind their ear, thus the neck and bosom were revealed. The combined verses of An-nur and Al Ahzab do not make wearing a jilbab mandatory which is why the sch
  9. (salam) I just use the times from local mosques, if I am out then I usually research the closest mosque and just follow those times. There are some area specific annual timetables too but for that you'd have to disclose the area of which prayer times you are interested in. (wasalam) For some reason those times are never accurate for me :(
  10. (salam)Only till a certain age ( Some schools infer adult suckling makes people mahram but Shia reject this idea) and there are numerous other conditions. 2483. The following are the eight conditions under which suckling child becomes the cause of being Mahram. That the child sucks the milk of a woman who is alive. It is of no consequence if milk is drawn from the breast of a woman who is dead. That the milk of the woman should not be the product of fornication or adultery. Hence, if the milk for an illegitimate child is breastfed to another child, the latter will not become Mahram of anyone.
  11. (wasalam) That's a difficult question because I suppose as the end of the day only Allah swt knows in which deeds the most reward (and consequently the most punishment) is. Obviously all the deeds you mentioned are good and acts like Salatul Layl and particular Mustahab fasts especially, are prescribed to have high rewards but when the Holy Prophet (sws) was migrating to Madinah for example, Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s) who usually used to spend his nights awake in Ibadah, slept in the bed of the Prophet sws to protect him and the reward in sleeping (on that particular night) was great. Similarly
  12. (salam) I don't think the fact that people call Jesus the son of God in that building should necessary stop Muslims praying there but that's just my take on it. A situation where Imam Ali (a.s) and a companion saw a church and the companion said think how much shirk is being committed and Imam Ali (a.s) replied but think how much Allah is being remembered there comes to mind. And people pray in places that hoard wealth be it wealthier mosques or their own homes all the time. But then again, you made some valid assertions regarding the innate corruptness and the conspicuous gluttony of wealth a
  13. (salam) That's all well but the question is will they remain in prison this time... :mellow:
  14. (salam) This is the only way- Otherwise hijab is mandatory.
  15. (Salam) I think you're referring to compression stockings but they are beneficial for those who are at risk of clotting/ decreased mobility and conditions like varicose veins rather then idiopathic swelling. There are many causes of leg pain and a lot of these suggestions and advice however well meant are no replacement for someone with medical knowledge and experience actually seeing and examining the leg. If mother doesn't want to go to the doctor, maybe bring a doctor in the family to her or schedule a house visit. (wasalam)
  16. (wasalam) I can't see any page, perhaps you could post it again
  17. (salam) In cases where it's been a longterm thing like the 30 times a day lady, there's usually a lot of enamel erosion. Another factor that contributes to it going unnoticed is compliance, usually people do not want their eating disorder to be noticed by health professionals. So they purposefully withhold information relevant to it whereas in other conditions, a patient will disclose most relevant symptoms to help reach a diagnosis. It's true that motherhood is empowering for some women, the responsibility of somebody else's life in their control gives them the strength to give up bad habits
  18. (wasalam) Even at the best schools and institutes, you end up teaching yourself.True but whilst time and money may have been wasted, knowledge is never a waste. At least you have learn some new things and nobody can put a value on that.
  19. (salam) That's pretty much how I've got through my entire education to date. Sometimes I genuinely wonder what is the point of having a teacher or professor when 75% of them are utterly of no help whatsoever. Anyway I'll pray InshAllah your hard work pays off.
  20. (wasalam) Thank you for your reply. Yes that makes sense, similar to Ahl al-Fatrah they would be exempt whilst everyone else will be accountable and should make the effort to seek the haqq.
  21. (salam) As dentists aren't really concerned with a patients overall health it falls to the doctor to diagnose it really. Complains of acidity and dry lips as a result of reflux and stomach acid can also be an indication to a good doctor who can then proceed to check the oral health of the patient. But I guess that's why it goes unnoticed.
  22. (salam) Whilst CLynn may have asked a question, the generalisations and misunderstandings cannot be attributed to any single person. Yes I have to agree with you, especially when a first time poster asks about mutah, a quick informative reply with an external link is more then sufficient.
  23. (salam) I usually am in agreement with you because of your level-headed and balanced answers.The reason I'm not so sure about your statement above about non-muslims choosing to believe the lies is simply because in most cases, non muslims don't know they are lies. Whilst it seems obvious to us that someone can validate most things if they choose to, people are not going to automatically assume the information they are presented with is lies. There's a lot of misdirected hate directed towards Islam due to terrorism, female genital mutilation, forced child marriages, oppression of women etc etc.
  24. (salam) Thanks for sharing your story, I'm sure it will help others who may be going through something similar. I have to agree with what you said about how people concentrate on the looks aspect of eating disorders and its not usually that simple. Unfortunately, misconceptions that every skinny girl must be anorexic are rife and not everyone understands that bulimic people can be skinny, overweight or perfectly within the normal weight bracket making it harder to identify and tackle it.
