  1. Salam, Sorry for the late reply. Yes, I saw a few of their translated books at an islamic book festival. I'd flipped through them but I don't remember if they were any good. They have these listed on the site: http://www.baa-center.org/baacenter/BooksDetails.aspx?BookID=211 The Man Behind the Leader http://www.baa-center.org/baacenter/BooksDetails.aspx?BookID=212 Living With No Sins http://www.baa-center.org/baacenter/BooksDetails.aspx?BookID=213 The Return of the Soul http://www.baa-center.org/baacenter/BooksDetails.aspx?BookID=214 Islam in the Holy Qura
  2. Salam, Theres Sayyed Abbas Noureddine over at مركز باء للدراسات. He's very well known. They used to do a course called سفر الى الملكوت that Im pretty sure tackles irfani and spiritual topics but Im not sure if they do it for the brothers as well. Theres a sample of the courses book here http://www.baa-center.org/baacenter/BooksDetails.aspx?BookID=81 .They also have publications like لطائف عرفانية. I suggest you contact them and inquire about their lectures and courses they might even be able to suggest other places you can go. (Website: http://www.baa-center.org/baacenter/Main.aspx )

  4. Salam Brother, Advice greatly depends on where you'll live and who you will be living with. As for transportation: As sister Layla has mentioned the transportation is pretty cheap. If you'll be living in dahiyeh van #4 might become your best friend, it goes as far as Hamra. Other vans go to Khaldeh, Aramoun etc for the same price. If you dont have someone to pick you up at the airport, be prepared to get ripped off. Maybe try calling a taxi service beforehand (eg: allotaxi.com.lb). As for walking, I've had no problems walking alone, usually during the day but also a few times during
  5. Salam, Just to add to what other members have posted about sayyida maryam (as): - (And Allah presents an example of those who believed: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, "My Lord, build for me near You a house in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his deeds and save me from the wrongdoing people. And [the example of] Mary, the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity, so We blew into [her garment] through Our angel, and she believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures and was of the devoutly obedient.) [Quran 66:11-12] Narrations I've come across: -
  6. Salam, From what I understood from your post, the girl had done nikah before doing what you mentioned? In that case I dont see what the big problem is. I would imagine that many of the girls you'll get to know for marriage later on would have had at least an encounter or two before you. Another thing, in all due respect brother I dont think you have the right to inquire about the privacy of her former marriage and I dont understand her motivation for sharing these private details with you. Whatever happened between her and her former fiance should remain between them be it a k
  7. Alcatraz: No Way Out (2014) History (National Geographic Documentary) https://youtu.be/geOhZgqzPQ4 Very interesting. A good portion is on escape attempts.
  8. 100% agree. Brother Ali, If you continue to worry about your classmates' opinions things will only become harder for you. In a few years time, if not already, many of your friends will be engrossed in a very much haram lifestyle. And as a practicing muslim it will be increasingly harder for you to fit it with them. As cliché as it sounds, if your friends do not accept you as you are they’re not worth your time. In year or two you will stop hearing from most of them and each of you will go your separate ways. So don’t compromise your religion for anyone. If these trips take you

  10. Everything I Never Told You (6.75/10) Things I Liked About It: -I could relate to a few of the characters. -I enjoyed the book being centered around family life which isn't something common in young adult lit nowadays. -The themes were ones that interested me (interracial marriage, parental influence etc) and they were dealt with in an interesting way. -I liked the writing style and the unsettling atmosphere of the book. Things I Didn't Like: -I found a few events unrealistic. While it is true that a lot of our decisions and personality traits are based on our parents and childhood/upbrin
  11. Books I Read: The Book Thief (6.75/10) Things I Liked About It: - That it is narrated by death. -The setting (Nazi Germany) which I've read little about. -Many of the characters (especially Rudy Steiner). -The organization of the chapters and the little notes added by death which made the book a quick read for me. Things I Didn't Like: -The book thievery (I didn't think it was as significant and deep as the author was making it out to be). -Though I liked the idea of reading from deaths POV I did not like his outlook on life the way it was portrayed in the book. At times he seemed t
  12. Where is the Friend's House? (9/10) (Farsi with English Sub) "An 8 year old boy must return his friend's notebook he took by mistake, lest his friend be punished by expulsion from school." Its been a long time since I've watched a movie that I liked and didn't have a lot to complain about. A very simple plot with acting that is very natural and genuine very unlike some of the blockbuster movies I've been seeing lately. I also really enjoyed watching the character of Ahmed. I highly recommend it.

  14. Salam, This reminds me of something my mother continually says: "You don't marry a man, you marry a family."
  15. (Salam) According to Sayed Khamenai babys urine is considered najis regardless except in one case: ((" Baby's urine is najis and the only exception is with respect to the clothes of the lady who takes care of the baby (that she may pray while having them on). ")) Regarding the mattress, it is sufficient to pour water once on the najasa without the need to squeeze it out only in the case of a breastfed baby (newborn). If the baby is not a "radi3" (newborn/breastfed) you should pour water until the najasa is removed and pour water once after that. As an obligatory precaution, you should squeeze
