  1. Salaam, ...i just recently came across this: https://medium.com/neodotlife/same-sex-reproduction-artificial-gametes-2739206aa4c0#:~:text=A developing technology known as,into sperm or egg cells. A developing technology known as IVG, short for in-vitro gametogenesis, could make it possible for same-sex couples to conceive a baby out of their own genetic material and no one else’s. They’d do this by having cells in their own bodies turned into sperm or egg cells. The science of IVG has been underway for the last 20 years. But it really took off with research that would later
  2. Salaaam Heres part 3 and 4. I really hope future parents take a look at these videos, because the sheikh is talking about the spiritual side of our behaviors and of islam. All the do's and don'ts in Islam are there because of the affect that action will have on our soul. Islam is all about the soul, but too many people get caught up in just the jurisprudence and they never look underneath that layer to see what the jurisprudence is based on or what its purpose is. It's based on the health of the soul. You're either building your soul by doing mustahab and halal acts, or you're c
  3. Salaam, The good thing is you're only 20.. my husband didn't find out until he was in his 30s that he can't stand most things that have to do with the human body, and so he dropped out of medical school. Yeah, he made it into medical school as a straight A student, but finally realized that he wasn't happy on that path. The problem was, as a child, he wasn't able or allowed to find his own path in life and in what interested him..he was basically told you're going to be a doctor and so he accepted it, only to find out later he wasnt happy or passionate about that field. Hes older no
  4. Salaam, This may be helpful, and most definitely important info to consider...a positive outcome for the child can be given a greater chance if certain measures are precautions are put in place pre birth.
  5. Salaam, I wonder what this looks like in real terms? Like, what does a persons life who has achieved even one level of this look like to a third party? Is their life obviously different in appearance to everyone elses? Or do they appear as everyone else does? My question is probably not very clear..its hard for me to imagine someone who is, say, married with 3 children, a full time job and all the other stressors and time constraints that come with "the typical life" being able to ascend in the spiritual sense ti the greater levels.
  6. @AStruggler Wow, thanks for that.. Ive been under the impression that khums is owed on basically every property you own, every year if it hasnt been used in that year. For example, i bought camping gear 8 years ago and as long as i have that camping gear, i thought i owed khums on it if i hadnt used it at least once in the year before my khums was due... So this is wrong then, right?
  7. Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters, Just as the title says, how come we very often run across the use of that phrase in the quran? Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)already knows all there is to know, so why does it say that, such as in this ayat: Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 140: إِن يَمْسَسْكُمْ قَرْحٌ فَقَدْ مَسَّ الْقَوْمَ قَرْحٌ مِّثْلُهُ وَتِلْكَ الْأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ If a wound has afflicted you (at Ohud), a wound like it has also afflicted the (unbelie
  8. Assalamualaikum, Thanks for the tag.. what I know, I only know from something I learned a long time ago, and I can't give you an exact source for it. I know this is a very poor answer! Anyway, what I had learned at some point either from a lecture, or conversation with my mentor sister, cant remember which, is that these things that are "najis" for us, are of no consequence to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), as He is above and beyond these kind of things, but for the health and spiritual advancement and whatnot of humans, Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has made these things najis for
  9. As salaamun aleikum everyone, I need some info on kharbozeh (Persian melon). I want to buy some seeds for my garden this year to grow persian melons but im having a hard time remembering the characteristics of them. Are their insides orange or green? Is the inside texture crisp? (I seem to remember them being crisp, not soft like other melons...) The outside are yellow with green netting, right? Thanks for any help!!
  10. Salaam everyone, Does anyone know where in Al Mizan Allameh Tabatabai mentions the 24,000 different Prophets along with their categorization/rank and numbers of how many Prophets were in each rank? Ive heard its mentioned in there somewhere, but Al Mizan is too HUGE to manually search through, and i dont have all the books that have come out either, so hoping someone here can help. Thanks, Salaam.
  11. Salaam, I have the same problem, and unfortunately, no one i know nor the local masjids want them. Masjids are already overwhelmed with books..Its not uncommon for muslims to "donate" (actually dump on the doorstep or inside the door) things like books, paintings, old calendars, pamphlets, vases, and other items that have holy names on or in them cuz they dont know what else to do with them. There's actually signs in my masjid that says not to leave anything there because this has become such a problem. It's difficult because according to some people, you're not even allowed to giv
  12. Salaam, i can totally relate to your experience. Im the same way and spent most of my life working as a gardener/landscaper because it enabled me to be away from people, emersed in nature, and to be able to stream islamic lectures on my phone while i was working, however, as a female, i had to leave that field as i became more and more practicing. Fields that may be good to look into could be microbiology as its mostly just you and a microscope,park ranger, or maybe some type of code writer. Possibly a cataloguer/librarian? Im sure there are other things but i cant think of them right now
  13. Salaam, Can you please provide the source Al Saboor came from? Id like to research the rest of the 99 Names, in sha Allah. Thanks!
