  1. Depends on who you are around. Among my friends, most are kind, soft hearted, generous, decent people. I'm always shocked when I meet strangers who are selfish and cruel.
  2. I had some Thai basil and vegetable dumplings with peanut sauce. Five stars - Would have again. And salad of lettuce, tomato, green onion, and serrano pepper.
  3. I didn't forget I was going to look in my books for ruling in English. If was just a really busy day. Plus I'm sure if the English and the Arabic conflict, Arabic takes precedence since it ia the language of the scholar.
  4. So... like being employed by the owner of the product?
  5. I have read with regard to working as a cashier, who scans the products and takes the money for them, but does not provide or prepare them in any way. I'll look tomorrow when it's daytime, but probably the Arabic ruling carries more weight than any translated ruling, and there is also a chance that I haven't correctly remembered all the details of what I previously read. Often, when necessity is involved, what is usually forbidden becomes permitted as a lesser evil.
  6. I had a taco with ground turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce, then I went to a cooking club meeting at the public library, where the spice being discussed was dill so I had some havarti with dill, crackers, and vegetables with dill cream dip.
  7. I'm not certain about that. I have definitely read rulings that Muslims are permitted to work in grocery stores that sell pork.
  8. I'm pretty sure the rulling reads differently in English, but the site is not opening for me. Maybe it's blocked "for my own safety". I will look at my books tomorrow in the daytime but I'm pretty sure it's only haram to sell pork or other haram meat to people who you know are Muslim. I was assuming that you need to work to earn money for your or your family's expenses, not just taking a job for fun. The rules are stricter if it's not necessity. If earning money is not needed, probably best to err on the side of caution and not do it.
  9. Take the work. You can serve anything except alcohol, which I doubt any school canteen will have. It's perfectly halal income. If you have doubts, you can portion out some of your earnings to give in charity.
  10. Agriculture does not require feudalism. Farmers are the source of food. Of course they're valuable. Farming communes are just as likely to succeed as plantations.
  11. It was a preliminary interview with the recruiter, and it was successful; he will pass my information to his client. He has a few other clients who might also be interested in hiring me if the first doesn't work out, but he's most enthusiastic about the one in particular. I hope his client decides to give me a chance. I'm looking for remote civil engineering work, which is perfectly feasible, but old civil engineers are extremely resistant to anything new. I still don't know anything about the company. If it's some war contractor, I'm going to be angry.
  12. My son is taking his road test for driver license. I request duas for his success and that he doesn't wreck my car. Also, I have a preliminary telephone interview for a job tomorrow morning. Please pray for my success if this is the right job for me. It's through a recruitment agency so I know nothing about the company. Edit: he passed! But still request duas for interview tomorrow.
  13. Side effects last a day or at most two. Catching covid can take weeks or months to recover, or you might die.
  14. I've got a beehive will be coming this winter inshallah, a gift from the state. Does anyone have any knowledge of keeping honeybees, or can recommend good books or websites?
  15. I don't know your circumstances, but sometimes it's better to be alone for the rest of your life than stuck in a terrible marriage. Even if you can't get divorced, if you are in danger or being oppressed, you need to move out immediately.
  16. I forgot about this topic! Last night we had a family favorite: oatmeal buffet. In addition to oats, I got our blueberries, peaches, raisins, dried cranberries, dried pineapple, cinnamon, pecans, applesauce, maple syrup, honey, and whipped cream. Everyone put wherever they wanted on their oats and was content. Right now I'm having coffee with milk. Plan for tonight's supper is beans and rice, but I've not yet decided on seasoning/flavor. All suggestions will be considered (if I see them before I start cooking.)
  17. Folk music of the type that children typically sing is permitted.
  18. It's my birthday and my grandmother's birthday today. She has accomplished 97 years. If you'd like to gift me, I request duas for my grandmother's continued health, and that when her time comes to leave this life, her passage to the next is the least painful that it can be, for Grandma and for those who love her.
  19. Labor Day in the United States is stupid. The grocery store is open. Construction work is continuing. My weekly trash collection was on schedule as usual. Restaurants and factories are business as usual. Who is it meant to celebrate? Certainly not banks and other government offices!
  20. You know what's sad and frustrating? "Islamic Misandry", the belief among too many Muslims that men are nothing but lust filled savages, incapable of thinking and choosing their actions. As a mother of sons, I hope to protect my children from this hateful and common lie, which, shockingly, is usually perpetuated by Muslim adult men. (Annoyed because I saw an interaction in which a creepy stranger sent over his wife to advise a woman on her imperfect hijab when he should have been lowering his gaze.)
  21. What? Someone told you it's bad how?
  22. I don't know about affiliation, but they are good. Sometimes some of their instructors post here about class registration, but I don't recall seeing anything recently.
  23. If you were in the US or UK, I would say absolutely do it. If it is reasonably safe and you will feel better about yourself and at peace, and you can afford it, you should do it. Hope everything goes well for you.
  24. Read this book. https://books.google.com/books/about/War_is_a_Racket.html?id=NGIUCgAAQBAJ
