  1. Good thing I hate those... coconut and white chocolate ugh!
  2. Me too, I never crave anything but I want to eat because I’m bored and somehow my body things eating will solve everything
  3. This is a “not safe for Ramadan” thread so don’t read any further if you’re someone who just started the day or gets hungry super easily! I’d like to ask what others crave the most during Ramadan? I’m not much of a foodie, I don’t really have a favourite food and can make a meal of whatever delivery place I end up choosing etc. During Ramadan I don’t specifically crave anything (example chocolate). I probably just crave coffee or tea to get rid of my headache if I have one. I typically find that I’ve forgotten a lot of foods until I see pictures of them, LOL. What do you normally find yourself craving?
  4. What I find the most annoying about a friend, no matter how good they are at everything else, is when they aren’t able to provide you honest advice and keep saying everything is good. Example, you’re trying on clothes at a store and they say everything looks good on you, even the ugly ones. I understand that they may be shy to express how they really feel or maybe they do think everything is fine, but considering I’ve seen some people offering other peopke honest advice and not me just shows me that there’s something that holds them back. At some point in life you only want to surround yourself with people who are honest (and everything else on your list) because their “it’s fine” gets very annoying very fast. Having people who can offer you insight when you ask for it is very beneficial as you’re growing up.
  5. So then why are you making it like your opinion is the only right one? Don’t be such a hypocrite.
  6. How do we browse forum questions? I'm only seeing a way to view latest replies on the forum under the activities tab. Does anyone know how to view based on category and how to post a new topic? I don't even remember how I posted this one!
  7. True, but since people are are "so open minded" and leave it up to the girl, she could marry a grandpa for all she cares, if shes ok marrying an 80 year old. People are allowed to contribute their opinions, lol.
  8. My response was based on what I recommend based on experience, considering thats what the person asking the question is looking for.... our opinions. I could say don’t say yes cause hes probably very wrinkly. Probably irrelevant to you but maybe a big deal to his daughter. We don't know since were not her, we're all giving our opinions. I think mine is the most accurate. If the dad wanted to just ask the girl for her opinion he could have, but he asked us.
  9. Very true. I just don’t think it’s worth it. True story, my aunt married someone 20 years older than her because of his amazing career in Saudi Arabia at the time, but as a result of political changes they were kicked out of their home and he lost in job in Saudi since they sent all Lebanese Shia back to Lebanon. Something like that can change a persons entire life. I recommend finding someone closer in age. Ali, girls get proposals from very random people; hence this father’s question, so as weird as it sounds, it happens haha
  10. I'm 22 and was once proposed to by a 40 year old so I hope I can provide some insight. I feel that older men are simply attracted to younger women, well, simply because they're young and it's like candy to a child. Long story short, I don't think you should go through with it. First of all, the gap is just so big. Their levels of maturity wouldn't be the same despite you believing your daughter is mature and responsible. Being mature and responsible at 22 is not the same as being mature and responsible at 42. Is this the first time your daughter has been proposed to? What was it that made him want to propose to her, do they spend a lot of time together or chat outside of the event? As someone else mentioned, his businesses and PhD mean nothing. I'm 22 and own two businesses, honors in BA, and was a university teaching assistant, does that make me better than your daughter? NO. In some other mans eyes, he might be searching for someone who's a nice cook, or someone with an MBA, or someone who's a good skater. In one persons eyes achievements may be impressive and to others they're just achievements. Long story short, if you're looking for someone for your daughter to marry there are dozens of other ways to meet someone. At 22, the maximum age you should accept for her is 32. Keep in mind someone with businesses can lose them overnight and he might have hidden debt.
  11. Thanks Hassan I remember you’d always respond to my threads and help me when you can. Also Lebanese blood.
  12. I don't even remember myself, it's like when you leave Facebook for a while and return and it's been updated lol
  13. Salam everyone! I think it's been almost two years since I last logged in and WOW this site has completely changed. I see there are groups, there's a chat, what is your favorite feature about the site? Also, I'm sorry to anyone who had messaged me and I did not reply to them. It's a little awkward to respond to 2-year-old messages especially when I'm ranting about something I can't even remember, LOL. Lets start fresh!
  14. Thank you both! Glad to know we will all be celebrating Eid together this year
  15. Can someone please clarify when Ramadan starts for Sayed Sistani in Canada? I believe I have been assured that is starts on a Sunday in the middle east, but is the ruling the same for Canada? I have not been able to find any information on the topic in English. Thank you, please include sources
  16. How can we delete or deactivate our accounts? With all the changes made to the site, it would be nice to add this as well.
  17. I've owned a business since I was 18 and I'm looking to start another one soon. I agree with you, definitely the bar on the left.
  18. Oh, that's before I read all these US related questions. Oops.
  19. I've heard that God is so Merciful that when a believer dies, God lets his soul witness joyful things that happen to his family and friends, for example a wedding or graduation. And to punish disbelievers they only see their family and friends when they're upset or fighting with eachother. I hope it's true. Hope my lover sees me when I'm laughing and happy. I miss him.
  20. ANyways, marriage is more than just relieving sexual frustration. You can't marry someone just because you want to sleep with them. There needs to be some connection between the two, or else good luck keeping the marriage strong at 40.
  21. Huh???? We believe in it BECAUSE it was narrated and, well, known that the Imams practiced it as well. That's like saying, I wonder how many Muslims will break their fast with a date if it wasn't narrated that the Prophet did that. If it wasn't narrated then who would do it in the first place? We can break our fast with water and soup and get onto the meal. We do things because they're narrated. That's the point.
  22. Thanks for your example and opinion, but unless you're answering my question I don't need the thread going off topic. This isn't a debate on whether Muttaa is halal or not. Theres a question posted, either you answer, view the answers, or keep it moving. Have a nice day.
  23. Exactly. These "constrictions" listed in the image are so simple. What's the problem with women marrying only Muslim men? Because someone of a different faith isn't going to give the woman the same freedom a Muslim man is. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. I'm sure that is not a restriction, lol. I've never seen a Muslim woman complain about that. It's just men. Complaining. About everything. That doesnt concern them. This guy wants to leave Islam because he's mad women are restricted and we feel just fine. Onto the next thread.
