    *I may stay for Isha or taraweeh prayers....but then that means that I might not get home till 11pm. :(*

    Night_Inshallah got a reaction from Gotham in Burkini   
    The suits are ugly and all it would do is draw unwanted attention to me.
     
    I don't go swimming in public pools or gyms.  There are places (creeks, rivers) that are pretty hidden and private and if there are other people there it's always families (women & children).

    Cornrows or box braids would solve that problem.
     
    www.middleeasternmall.com  They sell underscarves that look like giant head socks that you could stuff all your hair in without having to tie it.
     
    Or one of these underneath your scarf.

    Night_Inshallah got a reaction from Mlle. Advice in Marrying Someone For A Green Card,how Risky Is It?   
    There is a difference between marrying for a green card and using someone for a green card.
     
    A green card is a means to establishing wealth in this country.
    And it is permissible to marry for wealth.
     
    But if you just randomly pick a woman who you are not attracted to and don't love and have zero desire to be with just for a greencard and dump her afterwards.............now that is foul.

    Night_Inshallah reacted to guest022017b in Question To Brothers About Looks   
    to be honest looks are important 

    and you cannot deny looks, one of the names of Allah is Most beautiful, and we have an intrinsic desire for beauty because it is one of attributes of God, and when we see a beautiful woman we are satisfying that internal question for "the most beautiful" and yes the solution is temporary by getting a beautiful partner but you cannot deny that God created this in us so why deny it and act as if being shallow is an option 

    besides in heaven who would accept an ugly person? when heaven is described as having beautiful people

    Night_Inshallah got a reaction from Raven in Wearing Hijab To Work.   
    Sisters: Do you wear hijab to work? What type of work do you do?
     
    Brothers: Does your wife/mom/sister/daughter wear hijab to work? What do they do?
     
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    This summer I started wearing a scarf to work (tied up turban style like Erykah Badu or just wrapped around my head Aunt Jemima style).
     
    It did cause some issue because they just recently took issue with girls hear wearing "headgear" (scarves, hats, durags, etc.) to work. They say it's not professional (whatever). I of course raised hell because I wasn't going to stop wearing my scarf and people swore up and down that I was lying about being muslim.  
     
    So this week I started wearing the cotton al-amira hijab to work to end the confusion.
    This type of hijab is MUCH more comfortable because it is not squeezing my head and it 
    perfect for working long hours (12 to 16hrs).

     
    And of course I got 1 million questions & jokes about it. 
    The main question asked was if I was afraid to walk out the house with it on because somebody might do something to me. LOL, they really believe I put it on in the car before I walked in the building.  Another question was did I get married secretly and not tell anyone (apparently a man is making me wear it, lol).

    Night_Inshallah got a reaction from monad in What Does This Mean!? Asked And Was Told To Wait!   
    We have known of each other for about 2 years. His family owns a couple of stores in a neighborhood I used to live in.  I know he likes me (he was the one tossing hints) and I did tell him that I needed to find a husband (hint! hint!) and he said "what about me".  So when I got up the guts to ask I was not expecting anything other than a yes.
     
    The situation has gotten even worse as somebody else has asked for my hand last night.  How does one proceed?  It told the 2nd guy that I had JUST asked somebody else but we nothing has been set in stone but this other person lives in another state and I'm not 100% sure on relocating (that is what my wali got onto me about, not being willing to move).

    Night_Inshallah got a reaction from IbnSohan in Who Is Teaching Sunnis To Hate Shias & Sufis?   
    Is hate for non-Sunnis being taught in today's masjids?
    I don't see this "hate" going on in the masjid I attend.  I'm in the south (Alabama) and the masjid I attend is Sunni but there are Muslims from all backgrounds there.  This weekend the masjid had a "Day of Dignity" in the park & there were Sunnis and Shias serving the homeless together: spreading dawah, brought food and the medical doctors of the masjid came out and offered medical screening to the homeless.  From my eyes this is the work that muslims should be doing.
     
    Meanwhile I was in GA listening to Shaykh Tahir ul-Qadri and Shaykh Ninowy. 
    Shaykh Ninowy is Iraqi-Syrian and lives in Georgia. 
    He is Sunni & in the past gave this lecture on the Ahlul Bayt:
    http://youtu.be/QacDiZHyrzs?t=35m14s
    It's long but if you start @ 35:14 you will hear him talking about how the Sunni vs. Shia rivalry is intellectual terrorism and that the differences between the two is no excuse for hate, and how other Sunni scholars tried to discourage him from talking about the Ahlul Bayt.
     
    When I first started learning about Islam I did not understand the animosity between Sufis and Shias and Sunnis.  In my mind it's all Islam and we are all Muslims.  
    I'm seeing that a lot of "information" on Islamic forums is leaning more toward extremist indoctrination/Jihad recruitment.   And those who hold these extremist views tend to be cut from the same cloth: mostly males, reverts or next generation immigrants, walking,  young (under 30), poor/low income (don't work, underemployed and angry), lives with parents, uneducated/undereducated, unmarried
     
    They ( who ever is the system orchestrator of extremist indoctrination) apparently knows who to target.  Young males who don't have anything.  No independence, no job, no money, no education, no car, no woman.  They present them with the greatest gift given to man: Islam.  Society has rejected them from higher education and these people present them with knowledge that is greater.   I can see now how brain washing these young people can be easy and profitable for their cause.

    Confirmed Masjid Fact #1:  Nobody uses the shoe rack. The little shoe area; most (especially the children) run in at the last minute and kick the shoes off to the left.  When you leave the prayer hall you have a nice little pyramid of heels, addidas, flip flops, & cowboy boots.  I'm wearing my suede wedges on my next visit and will be sure to place them on the top far shelf.

    I've noticed some common factors among those who are radicalized: young, unmarried, & broke.  You can't sell this "jihad/radical salafi" idea to someone who has a life. Which is one reason it is so easy for them to recruit incarcerated young black men.
