  1. Yes, people can change. (They usually don't, but anything's possible by God's will.) If you come across someone whose present genuinely seems good- religious, good akhlaq, humble, etc.- let him have his say. Relying on hearsay when the person isn't able to defend himself isn't worth it, and it isn't society's place to forgive us for our sins. In their ignorance, people may be recounting the sins of these guys long after even God has forgiven them. (On the other hand, if a guy hasn't changed yet but promises to, or is only halfway there, or is being actively deceitful, it's probably best
  2. Allah (swt) bless you sis, that's a lot to go through. =/ In all of this, try to remember that it isn't your fault things are so messed up, and it isn't your responsibility to patch them up... Do what you can insh'Allah, and where you have no hope of improving things, leave it up to God. Also, try your best to understand where your siblings are coming from. I know you probably feel like socking your bro in the face right now because of how selfish he seems, but he's probably behaving this way because he hasn't had a decent father figure to look up to. Hurting others and behaving recklessly
  3. Subhan'Allah, that's a beautiful sentiment. :) May Glenn Beck have tons to whine about in the days to come, insh'Allah. It's truly a blessing to be alive right now and watch all this unfold.
  4. It's an immense danger to let this sort of thing slide and allow questionable characters to speak to the masses, but it's also dangerous to make a sport out of accusing people who dedicate untold years of their lives to the study of our religion for the (essentially) selfless purpose of informing us. I'm sure no one here has done that, but better safe than sorry... If any of the people whose motives we question are in fact nearer to Allah (swt) than us, we're in serious trouble. Trivial aside: Sarah Palin's daughter (ie. the one who got famous for having an out-of-wedlock child) gets paid $
  5. ^ True say! Salaams sis, Going to Karbala, circling the Kaaba, etc., won't in itself change you- these things simply comprise a physical journey. The real journey is the one within, and you don't have to wait for a physical pilgrimage to begin it. I've known many people who went for ziyarah/hajj and didn't feel any changes in their lives upon returning, while there are plenty out there who have yet to go but have transformed themselves in incredible ways through sheer willpower. In any case, I hope you get to go soon insh'Allah, you seem like you'd genuinely gain a lot from it. :)
  6. :donno: / :mellow: / :lol:
  7. As the old saying goes, "if shaitan reminds you of your past, remind him of his present/future.' When God gave us the capacity to regret our past actions, it wasn't so we could simply beat ourselves up for the mistakes we've made... Every aspect of human nature is ultimately designed to bring man back to his Lord. You can convert your ability to regret into a spiritual weapon if you forgive yourself; because in doing so, you can ask His forgiveness with a whole, mended heart insh'Allah. You'll feel so much better when you realize that what you've done does not have to define who you are or l
  8. Salaams, Apply water/wet compresses, don't use butter/milk/lemon etc as these things contain natural acids of their own that could exacerbate the problem. Cover the area with dry gauze and leave it alone for a while. Aloe vera will help protect against scarring, but may also dry the skin out so don't use it until the skin has begun healing and is able to retain moisture. An alternative to this is Eucerin's Aquaphor ointment; it carries no risk of drying and is an effective measure against all sorts of skin problems including minor burns. The ingredients are a bit suspect, but it's designed
  9. ^ Anything for my beautiful, perfect sisters :wub: :wub:
  10. Wasalaam, Haven't seen this one in a while :) See the following threads: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?/topic/234966196-questions-about-nahjol-balagha/ http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?/topic/234943936-women-are-deficient/ To summarize the repetitive arguments that typically crop up when this is discussed, the sermon is either of questionable authenticity and should be suspect simply because it would appear to contradict Qur'anic notions of spiritual equality among the genders (Ayatullah Saanei takes this approach, for instance), or the sermon was directed at and is

    Who Are You?

    Absolutely awe-inspiring, jazak'Allah.
