  1. Inna lillahi wa inna alaihi rajioon. So sorry for your loss. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) give you and your family patience during this difficult time. Prayers for your father and family.
  2. I had some tomato and broccoli quiche for lunch with lettuce.
  3. I wonder how accurate these BMI charts are nowadays and if they should be reviewed. In some cultures being of a larger stature is admired and seen as a sign of affluence. Some larger women are even considered more attractive.
  4. The healthier option, that's much better. I would usually have plain nuts too but on the odd occasion I'll have some of the these.
  5. A handful of these bad boys for a snack when I don’t have time to eat.
  6. Have you tried using garlic paste? I don’t like using the shop bought one but you can make the paste at home too. Maybe you could share the recipe once you’ve perfected it!
  7. You can put the bulb/s of garlic in water for a while too and that also helps soften the cloves and they come out of their shell easily. Using a pestle to bash them is also helpful. It’s a lot heavier and you don’t risk breaking your fav mug!
  8. Remember me when the truth becomes alone, alone and sad. ~ Imam Hussain (عليه السلام)

  9. Sorry sister I’ve only just seen this thread but glad it’s all sorted for you.
  10. I’m curious as to what you think constitutes the Asian community being more vocal and addressing this issue? What do you think needs to be done? This is reminding me of western communities accusing most Muslims of not integrating but then speaking about other communities as integrating really well just because some of them might go to pubs and clubs. That’s something we can’t compromise on and no matter how much we might try and integrate in other ways, it just won’t be good enough for some. Moreover, I do feel the media sometimes hounds Muslims. Don’t get me wrong I am by no means sayin
  11. Salam sister, if it’s near the time of your month then it likely is your menstrual cycle as sometimes the days aren’t always accurate. There are apps available that you can use to help estimate when you may be due on. There is one app called ‘Flo’ which might be of interest to you for future. Please do follow the link that sister Hameedeh suggested and you can also contact your marjas office for advice too to ask for more info about istihada. Most sisters I know would take this as a sign that their menstrual cycle has begun. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows best.
  12. Exactly, I agree with the first part which suggests why they may have not yet developed the understanding to deal with some of the issues faced at that age. However, I do feel it’s important not to generalise, everyone is unique and so is their level of resilience as well personal circumstances. Times are always changing though and so is the human way of dealing with certain situations. School life was very different in the 70’s for example in comparison to now and so was the way of dealing with things like bullying etc. It will continue to change as time goes on. We now have the added p
  13. Maybe they didn’t have the resources, knowledge or understanding to ‘deal with it’, times are changing. Also, dealing with something doesn’t necessarily you completely overcome it. Sometimes those emotional scars will remain with a person even though years later they might be thriving so need that extra support to make sense of things.
  14. Keeping ourselves in check is a good thing as it can help us to self reflect and work on bettering ourselves which is something we should be constantly striving towards. We also have to be careful that the negative thoughts or memories of being put down in the past don’t become something our mind latches on too and we start to bully ourselves (which happens more than people realise).
