  1. does anyone know where he is currently located?
  2. what were the chances of getting an answer from the author himself? and i havent been on this site for so long! jazakallah khair, you cleared up everything.
  3. snaqvi <--- cant speak arabic i tried using the 'english' tab on the site quoted by both fyst and macisaac, but i got an 'error' flag. anyone willing to translate? i would be ever most grateful.
  4. (bismillah) I was under the impression that we [ humans ] are superior to angels because of our free will... if angels have free will, what is it that would make us superior? ARE we superior? (salam)
  5. (bismillah) [ Shakir 33:33 ] And stay in your houses and do not display your finery like the displaying of the ignorance of yore; and keep up prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying. "Allah (sawt) is removing evil deeds and sins ( ArRijs) and is purifying them with a thorough purification" [ http://www.shiacrescent.com/2009/07/03/reb...-on-surah-3333/ ] I'm not questioning the validity of this, I am asking for an explanation to better my understand
  6. Jazak Allah everyone, you've all been very helpful. ^_^
  7. (salam) I've been trying to track down the oldest manuscript of the Quran... with little luck. I found this: "It is said that Caliph Othman made five copies of the original Koran..." (http://www.islamicity.com/articles/articles.asp?ref=bb0601-2875) and the original is... Do you know something I don't know?? :-)
  8. salam, (1) first of all, there is a difference between a wife and a mother. If a man needs a wife to tell him its too cold to be without a coat, i have to feel doubt of his mental capability to have a wife in the first place. it takes two people to make a kid; it takes two people to raise a kid. women should not feel sole responsibility for childcare. women should not feel more guilty than men if the child becomes ill. women should not feel that men are clueless when it comes to childcare, bc this only increases their own work load and adds stress to marital and family relations. Dont know if
  9. I am so praying an extra long dua for you! You said everything I wanted explained, and reinforced it two fold. Just one thing: I believe that all muslims are feminist. Islam and feminism are both against racism, classism, lookism, agism, and of course the all-time sexism. I do not believe we should be equal in each and every given aspect. I do believe that we are of equal worth, that if a woman choses to stay home and if her husband goes out to work everyday, they equally contribute to the household. Capitalism is the driving force that makes money-earners more important, because capitalism i
  10. Salaam, First of all, I’m sorry if I offended one. I'm just trying to seek truth and justice. If you guys want to PM me, please dont send profanity. Thank you to all who replied. I'll take it one by one: Imran Ali: I tried to speak to a mulana, as I said in my first post. Yousif: (your first post) I read that exact explanation, but thought is insufficient for my own understanding because (1) Women are good at more than just child rearing and house keeping; (2) It doesn’t explain WHY women are given less inheritance or witness-ship; (3) Imam Ali is just ('adil), why would he implicate ALL women
  11. Salam all, quote from Nahjul Balagha, 79th sermon: "O' ye peoples! Women are deficient in Faith, deficient in shares, and deficient in intelligence. As regards the deficiency in their faith, it is the abstention from prayers and fasting during their menstrual period. As regards deficiency in their intelligence it is becuase the evidence of two women is equal to that of one man. As for the deficiency of their shares that is becuase of their share in inheritance being half of men. So beware of evils of women. Be on your gaurd even from those of them who are (reportedly) good. Do not obey them ev
  12. Salam all, I'm not all too familiar with Khomeini's views on women. After the revolution, what were the positive effects that came for muslim women? I feel so immature for asking instead of looking it up myself but my computer is acting spasmodically and randomly crashes and I'm on a time constraint. I tired search engines, which only turn up articles about how women were treated like African Americans during the Jim Crow law days. (i.e. segreagated bus seating.) I have to explain to a feminist philosopher that Khomeini does respect women (using facts) before she publishes something less respe
  13. (bismillah) Click here to view http://www.tnfj.org.pk/ can it be? salam.
  14. lol. maybe someone somewhere someday fell into a bowl of mashed potatoes... repetidely... and noticed their circles going away? hehe i looooove spinach! yeay! :D
  15. this might be the key, i use to exercise like crazy but i got lazy during the summer b/c i had school work, a job, research, volunteering, family flying in from different countries, friends' life crisises, etc. etc. I really should start again, but its hard run or even walk while fasting... i already drink water like crazy, infact i probably drink ten glasses before noon. i eat small meals but i eat often. (my sis tells me i never leave the kitchen table... :huh: ) i love dates with warm milk and honey (dunno just a thing i picked up) and i absolutely hate oil. so i guess i just need to ex
  16. nice cover up.... they just were upset that their actions were made public and instead of being praised by the american people they were scorned... if this is a true democracy the people should know what the behavior is of the soldiers defending them, it shouldnt be a secret. we have the right to know!!
  17. by the way, the cucumber's not working, tea bags made my eyes red, and i cant find potato paste (any homemade recipes?) :(
  18. Salam, sis UmmAli, hmm i dont think its vitamin C, i love oranges and all other types of fruit (except yellow apples, but anyway) i think it may be the iron then. the problem is, i dont know how to take in more of it. my mom (like all desi mothers) says red meats the best source, but i hate meat, and chicken's ok, but still i prefer vegies. which vegetables are high in iron (which taste good in a sandwhich)? please dont recomend zucchini! sis Umm Zaynalabadin, anemics have a lower iron level than most people (like me.) but i dont understand why getting a tan would cover your circles... may y
  19. haha unique beauty? sis you can accept it as a feature, but not a beautiful one! and anyway what type of deficiencies could it be? i do also have low iron in my blood... but for all i know that wouldnt cause dark circles. i recently got blood work done (not for the circles, but still) it didnt show any deficiencies. what else could cause these?
  20. hmm i'm not a big fan of make up, but the natural stuff sounded good. well off to get two slices of cucumbers, jazakallah everyone!
  21. salam sisters, well havent been here for a long time, and i see many new members. welcome! maybe someone can help here, see i've got these stupid circles around my eyes that wont go away. :( i sleep 8 hours a night (if not more) and i eat plenty, although i'm slightly underweight, but that shouldnt do anything. i cant remember when i got these darn things but i know i havent always had them please! some help! wasalam, snaqvi :P
  22. it appears to be stained, like i can see the tiny lines of my hands and my fingerprints. it interesting you say my skin is reacting to it, becuase i never had a reaction to mehndi before. but my skin is supersensative, like last week i used a pinch of bath & body work's sweat pea (i love that scent!) and my hands first got really itchy, then i had small bumps all over my skin, which turned into tiny cuts. it burned even if i put on sensative-skin-formulated lotion. but back to this henna....
  23. (salam) sisters! does anyone know how to identify chemical henna? my aunt is visiting from pakistan and brought me some mehndi, which i happily applied taking for granted that it was natural mehndi- made of herbs. but recently i'm noticing that my skin seems to be peeling a bit and now i dont think the henna was natural... the dark peel gives way to orange-brown colored skin, what one would expect when the henna began to fade... :unsure: please someone help, i heard you cant do wudhu with chemical henna applied, and if i cant do wudhu that means my salaat isnt accepted. wasalam.
