  1. ^ oh I see! But my question is more like: if I buy a carnelian ring from any old non islamic store, does it still have the spiritual benefits of aqeeq ring? It sounds like a really stupid question but oh well I still want an answer!
  2. I have a question: is there a difference between an 'aqeeq' ring and any agate/moonstone/emerald etc ring I can buy from any old store?
  3. Oh Allah, how did I aquire such a reputation, and why does it follow me everywhere? Why can't I be free from this. :'(
  4. ^ it's offensive if you use the word as a synonym for stupid, instead of in a proper context (someone who is mentally retarded). In that cartoon it is offensive.
  5. Is there such thing as brown kohl/kajal? If not, do you girls know of any water soluble (for wudhu) eyeliner pencils that come in brown color? I have tested some other eyeliner pencils by coloring with it on a piece of paper and putting a drop of water on it... and the water does not go through, hence I would have to take it off to make wudhu. But when I tested it with kohl, the water went through which is why I like it, but the black color is too harsh for me.
  6. Yes but I can't imagine that the heart or lungs of a partially developed baby could be used by a fully grown adult... How does that work?
  7. Chapter 14: The Divine Obligation to Fear Allah 1) Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq(as) said: 'One of the preserved portions from the sermons of the Prophet (S) is as follows. He said: "O people, verily you posses certain characteristics, so be aware of these characteristics and act upon them, verily you have a destined end, so be aware of it and act accordingly. Indeed, the believer in one who acts between two fears: between the time that has passed, not knowing what Allah has done with it, and the appointed time that is to come, not knowing what Allah has decreed therein. The believing servant s
  8. (salam) I wanted to compile a list of all the 'romantic' verses of the Qur'an in the sense of marriage and couples. Most of these translations are Sahih International with a few exceptions. If you know of any more, please contribute. "It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them..." [2:187] "O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah , through whom you a
  9. This is her own account. The air hostess did open the man's can of beer. Is it possible this is being blown out of proportion? Only one man yelled at her which is terrible, and the other passengers should have had her back. It was a humiliating and unfortunate event but I don't think this is worth boycotting an airline about. :donno:
  10. I thought this was a parody and you changed the lyrics. Wow I never knew that's what his song said.
  11. (bismillah) This was in the introduction to the book Polarization Around the Character of Ali Ibn Abi Talib. I found it interesting, made me think about what category I fit in and why, and thought I would share. ______________________________________________ In terms of attraction and repulsion in relation to other individuals, not all people are the same; indeed they can be divided up into various classes: 1. Individuals who do not attract and do not repel No one likes them, nor is anyone their enemy; they incite no one's love, affection or attachment, nor anyone's hostility, e
  12. Oh my gosh, that's appalling. What does that say about the way society is headed. Personal pleasure is becoming god, it always has been for individuals which is why we have jihad al nafs, but now it's becoming god on a societal scale. Scary.
