  1. New year new thoughts thread! Special thanks to a person who wishes to remain anonymous.
  2. Yea, I never lived back home but that's been the case with most families I know too. Migration comes with so many difficulties that often give a couple experiences that help them with bonding.
  3. That is a statistic I've read all over the internet. I haven't verified it myself but if you google it it'll come up everywhere. https://www.forbes.com/sites/amyguttman/2015/12/09/set-to-take-over-tech-70-of-irans-science-and-engineering-students-are-women/#461fd4e544de However, I'm assuming the course ban in 2012, employment statistics and various announcements from university will discourage females continuing pursuing STEM fields in Iran. "On 20 August 2012, an announcement was made by Iran's Ministry of Science, Research and Technology that 36 universities in Iran would be
  4. So I'm not sure based on what data you're suggesting that emotional dependence or love amongst partners in the East is more than the West? Where exactly are you getting this information that this is a western culture female issue? That's a specific example but actually for the most part I'd say females want to spend more time with their partners and need more attention than vice versa. To my knowledge, this has been supported by studies, hence, the stereotypical term "clingy" is used usually for females. Generally what we know about female psychology conflicts your specific example, so th
  5. Regarding dependence, even back in the days when females were more dependent on men it was problematic if things didn't go well (e.g., husband passes away). However, due to various reasons females didn't have the opportunity to establish independence as much back then. Now that women do have the opportunity to take more control over their own lives, they recognize that they can and should prevent the risk of losing everything in a relationship and being left with no support. Yes you are right that in some areas of the world partners are more dependent on each and dependence will typically
  6. Walaykum Salam, Picky eating is completely normal in toddlers and shouldn't be a concern. Try to minimize distractions and set regular meal time patterns. Toddlers often imitate older siblings. Remember appetite generally goes down at around 12 months. Allow their independence and curiosity. Aversion to meat in toddlers is very common behavioural concern for parents. Don't force your child to eat meat if he/she doesn't want it. There shouldn't be a power struggle when it comes to eating. Use alternative vegetarian or vegan options. Food complementation is also a great way to get com
  7. If you could ask God one question what would it be?
  8. Thank you so much for your explanation. I really appreciate it. It did clarify some stuff. I have a couple more questions if you don't mind. Do you know why the particular reason for the shorter iddha period is? Would this not interrupt the wife's duty to her husband then if she has to maintain iddha from prior relationships? In addition, considering her husband, doesn't this go against the nature of men as explained from an Islamic perspective, if a married slave was shared? Does the concept of relationships with a slave being halal without marriage apply to a female master and her
  9. Is this permissible without her consent or against her will? Also, in terms of a female master with a male slave, relationships aren't permissible right?
  10. I was really confused about what he was saying too because it went against what I had previously researched. But what about his point regarding iddha (e.g., if the slave was previously married)? Does a slave need to maintain iddha prior to relationships with the master? Honestly, this is such a sensitive topic that I have a hard time coming to terms with. It's so hard for me to accept this is Islamically allowed.
  11. I've heard from multiple people he answers Facebook messages much faster than emails but don't quote me on that.
  12. This truly is a tragedy for Hugh Hefner. Not because of his death, but because of the eternity he faces.
  13. Persian culture is probably the most westernized in comparison to other Muslim countries in terms of marriages. It is extremely rare to live with your parents after marriage. I actually don't know anyone who does this in Iran or the West. Sometimes you may live in the same apartment building as your in-laws but that's because traditionally the husband's family provides a house/apartment for the couple and the wife's family provides furnishing and everything inside the apartment/house. Usually many families purchase apartments for their sons in the same building when they buy their own. That's
  14. Not commenting on this specific case but just wanted to mention that staying with someone if you're unhappy for the sake of children only is not always the better option. It's not healthy for the parents or the kids. Sometimes it's healthier for children to have divorced parents on good terms who co-parent respectfully and responsibly. Happier parents usually provide a better up bringing for their children whether that be with their children's other parent or not. Being in an unhappy marriage doesn't necessarily set a better example or provide a more stable household for the children than a "b
  15. All are correct except the last one. Number of rakats stay them same when you pray in a sitting position. Of course while travelling zuhr, asr and isha are two rakats.
  16. If you can figure out a way to pray privately on a plane that you're comfortable with then alhamdulilAllah but prayer is obligatory and it's not acceptable to not pray just to avoid publicly praying. In regard to others not willingly submitting to Allah, maybe they haven't had the opportunity to learn about Islam and you publicly praying may be an invitation for them to inquire more about Islam. Sayed Sistani says:
  17. This depends. For example, if your flight boarded 15 minutes before fajr you can pray fajr right when you get on the plane. However, the sky is a decent indicator of prayer times. According to Sayed Sistani's website:
  18. I've prayed on planes several times before with no issues. If they're not comfortable it's usually because they're not sure what you're doing. Just be nice and explain to them in a friendly conversation, you'll be surprised at the positive reactions you get.
  19. I was just at Al-Huda and verbally everyone at the mosque was saying eid is on Sunday.
  20. "So-called Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the attacks in Tehran over an encrypted messaging app, saying its fighters had struck both locations. However, the group provided no evidence to back up its claim." http://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-middle-east-40184696
  21. Hajj is a pillar in Islam according to the Sunni schools of thought. According to Shias, Hajj is furoo al-din.
  22. They're last official statement about their supplier was in 2011. "To our loyal fans – we have changed our chicken supplier in Canada for a number of reasons, including supply sustainability, specification adherence, food safety, and brand consistency. As a result, the chicken is now machine processed rather than hand processed. It is, however, still Halal certified. Please visit your local restaurant manager if you have any questions or would like to view the official certificates. We want you to know we made the change to ensure that we can continue to serve you the chicken that you love fro
  23. New Zealand What's one personal and one career goal you want to achieve in the next two years?
  24. All Popeyes franchises in Canada are halal.
  25. Never! Can't risk the $500-1000 in fines, alongside the 3 demerit points. Plus, I don't want to die anytime soon. Who is one person, dead or alive (non-religious figure), you'd like to have dinner with?
