  1. (salam) Thank you all for your input; reading all your different viewpoints concerning this topic is of great value to me, especially considering the fact that we each come from different backgrounds and thus bring our different experiences to the table- it really is interesting to read. I am not a white convert; I was just curious to know in general considering living in a North American society that tends to lean more on "lighter" features in people (unfortunately). Jazakallah
  2. (salam) Try this site to keep up with your prayers as “The first thing one will be held accountable for on the Day of Judgement is prayer.” And just remember to start anything in the Name of God; and if you are unsure of an act, question whether it will take you towards God or away from Him as your intention should be pure before you start anything inshaAllah. If you suspect it to be impure and take you away from Him, then abandon it. :) Wassalam

  5. (salam) To all those who contributed to this thread, it was indeed a joy reading all your replies. This was very informative, and I thought I'd put that thought out there ^_^ Wassalam
  6. (salam) All my friends have attended Islamic school, and continue to do so. I have done so in the past, but I have dropped out of it and have continued my education in normal school until today. The thing with Islamic school, is that, despite its benefits of having you learn in an Islamic environment, you would at least think or expect the student from the Islamic school to be at a higher spiritual level than the one attending normal school, for example. Yes, there is a much better access to elevating your spiritual status and growing a connection with God in Islamic schools as there is in normal schools as it is embedded in the curriculum, but it could also take one away from the willingness and determination in finding their way on their own. I was raised in a rather strictly religious family and attended Islamic school for a good 6 years but even after all that, I had decided to remove my hijab for another few years, date, etc.. basically, by doing these things, I had thought that I had "set myself free" from all the "oppression". Being in an environment such as public school (majority atheist population) that discourages religious dialogue actually ENCOURAGES those with an open heart and an open mind to seek answers and do their research in asking questions, getting to know about other people and faiths due to the heterogeneous population (how do you think young conversions occur/where young converts get their info from) unlike the Islamic school that is limited to the Muslim population. if you're willing, you will find the way. If you're motivated, you will be willing. If you're determined, you will follow that way. Belief is something that cannot be taught. It can only be discovered through life's lessons and experiences and practised. A sincere connection with God is also the same, I find.
  7. (salam) I was just wondering whether white converts/reverts would still be eligible for "white privileges", even after submitting themselves to Islam? what I am seeking to know, is the following type of benefit (counted as white privilege): being the one offered lotion samples at the mall? I have seen this a lot: once a white female converts to Islam, people no longer see her as a white woman but rather as a Muslim hence her hijab. Thanks ahead of time,
  8. (salam) I have recently discovered this video, made by a certified health nutritionist on eating healthy and losing weight. It's very long, but if you have the time and patience for it, it can be a great help and of benefit inshaAllah :rolleyes:
  9. (salam) I listen to a similar genre for the same purpose, as you mentioned; to better focus. After listening to one of brother Hassanain's many lectures regarding the topic of , my perception has shifted elsewhere.Otherwise, I believe that as long as the music that you are listening to doesn't get you moving to the beat/rhythm physically and doesn't affect you emotionally (make you feel sad/happy/etc) or drift you away from the Creator, then I personally don't see a problem with it. Because all God wants is for us to live and worship Him in a conscious state (which is why such things like alcohol are forbidden because intoxication drags us into a state of unconsciousness) and as long as the music you listen to doesn't interfere with that law, then I don't see a problem personally. Also, intention always counts- if your intention is pure and it is to simply concentrate, then why not? If what you listen to has a corrupted message then that will lead your emotional, spiritual and mental self towards corruption. Those are just some of my thoughts revolving around this topic. If anyone could correct me if I'm wrong or elaborate further, I'd love to hear it, as we are all on this journey towards self-improvement. Jazakallah Khair :rolleyes:
  10. (salam) I looked for this thread eagerly, looking forward to posting this song with the English subtitles until I saw it had already been posted :D Alhamdulillah this beautiful song and its wonderful message of our Awaited (AF) is rapidly spreading- For me, it really gave an insight as to his magnificent character (what to expect in terms of appearance, personality, etc.) and I guess I'm the type of person who needs somewhat of a direct connection with someone or something to really feel and take in mind their significance- maybe many of us are like this..? Anyway, Jazakallah Khair! :lol:
  11. Assalamu Alaykum, is the link to a beautiful one in Farsi on Imam Mahdi (AF) :rolleyes:There are English subtitles in case you don't speak/understand Farsi- The lyrics are bound to leave you in tears, as they do for me every time they reach my ears... If anyone is interested in having the mp3 file, feel free to e-mail me or give me your e-mail so that I may send it to you, inshaAllah
