  1. Anyone surprised by or skeptical of this has no experience with the US military. Navy SEALs Were Warned Against Reporting Their Chief for War Crimes https://nyti.ms/2Vfi3XP Hope the psychotic mass murderer is tried and convicted. Not expect, but hope.
  2. @Laayla thanks for sharing this information. May Allah's curse forever be upon the oppressors and tyrants, whoever they are. I haven't seen these incidents in the media before now.
  3. Oh I forgot about this topic! My husband bought me a Pixel 3. I'm happy with it.
  4. Coastal. I've formerly lived near Richmond, Lynchburg, Roanoke, and Blacksburg, never NoVA.
  5. Do you have a favorite book? And if so, why? I'm fond of the Palms and Proverbs, because I can always find wisdom in them and the writing (at least in most translations) is beautiful.
  6. @Akbar673 I wish you success and strength, whatever you decide. I'm in Virginia, not Illinois, but if you do decide to run, I'll be following your campaign, inshallah. I wonder how much it's appropriate for Muslims to support or campaign for non-Muslim candidates who share many but not all of our values. I'm on the fence about volunteering for a candidate in my district who I really think is genuinely well intentioned, but is a long shot.
  7. She likes figuring stuff out. Maybe she would enjoy mysteries. I wonder if she's old enough to enjoy The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. Are those even appealing to modern kids? And how to get there from stories of magic cats?
  8. Heh. She's 7. We're at the level of multiplication, division, and some fairly simple logic and algebra. Other than Al Jibra, I don't know if history has recorded who is responsible for those.
  9. Salam Especially asking parents, but I'd appreciate input from young people too. My seven year old is a math wiz, and pretty quick to pick up science concepts too, but she is reluctant to pick up a book and read. I'd like to encourage her to develop her natural math ability, but I'd also like to encourage her to become a reader. If a person can read, they can teach themselves anything, and through fiction we experience scenarios we would never encounter in real life, increasing wisdom. She likes books that involve cats and magic, but there are (as might be expected) a limited number of those, especially when it's further limited to second/third grade reading level. Any suggestions for books, or even puzzle or math books or games that might get her reading but are still fun and age appropriate? @Haji 2003? Any expertise to share?
  10. Nobody would hold a belief unless they had confidence in it.
  11. My family always enjoys the discount sales after candy oriented holidays too. My Easter favorite is the Robin Eggs chocolates. (Please nobody tell me they have haram ingredients - that would make me sad.) My kids like the big chocolate bunnies, and my husband likes anything with chocolate and peanut butter.
  12. Thanks for the reminder. My Christian family members are celebrating Easter, so I was aware of its timing, but I wasn't sure of the timing of Passover. I know it's a weeklong observation, but is there a specific day with celebration? Google tells me Passover started on the 19th and goes until the 27th.
  13. Let me clarify what I mean. I support individual people's right to place themselves under shariah of their choice which is within the bounds of the law. (In other words, they have a right to freedom of religion.) Better?
  14. I'm a liberal defender of Muslims' right to shariah in their communities, but if anyone tries to "touchy feelie" me, they might end up with a broken arm, and your respect for the MAGA cretins is noted.
  15. I hope others here will join me in wishing our Christian members and visitors a blessed and joyous Easter.
