  1. Salam everyone, here in Lebanon, there are some people who claim that they can tell how your future will look like and whether or not good or bad things will happen to you. They do this by opening the Qur'an and I don’t know what they do after that but basically whatever they predict for you, is based off of the Qur'an somehow. When I first heard of this, I thought this is insane because no one could possibly know the future except for God himself. These people are probably doing something dangerous and this is surely haram. My cousin visited her friend the other day whose mom just so happened to be one of these people who predict things that will happen to you based on opening and reading the Qur'an. The women who spoke to my cousin told her that the day after she would get a call from the people she had a job interview with telling her that she got the job. This happened the day after. She also told her I know you had a bad dream 3 nights ago, that also happened. She told her several other things all of which have happened and it wouldn't have been possible for her to know any of these things but somehow she did. This honestly has me freaked out and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this and whether or not this has some sort of basis in religion or how it is possible. I feel stupid telling this story but honestly everything the woman told my cousin was absolutely true and I need answers!
  2. I think you should go for it. If its something that makes you feel self conscious and bothers you because it doesn't make you feel as beautiful, then why not get it fixed if you can? Its permissible in Islam and if you're doing it to make yourself feel more confidant and beautiful then why would there be a problem? I didn't like my nose since forever and last year I decided I wanted to get plastic surgery because I was sick of not feeling beautiful the way I was. I did the surgery when I was 17 which is normal here in Lebanon. Ever since, I wake up and feel better about myself. I am more confident and thats what I care about. A LOT of people told me not to do it and then asked me why when I did do it, but I don't it. Whats the big deal? If I want it and its halal then whats the problem? However, as mentioned above, all surgery does have its risks. But your surgery is a simple rhinoplasty to remove a common bump that lots of people have. You shouldn't worry about it:)
  3. Salam everyone, I've had the same dream twice now and I was wondering if anyone had any idea what it meant and if it does mean something at all. My first dream was 3 weeks ago where I dreamt that someone chopped off half my hair and I was so shocked and then I woke up very nervous and scared because I barely had any hair left. Yesterday I woke up very stressed and scared because I also dreamt that the hairdresser chopped off almost all my hair and then told me that he thought it was better that way. I was yelling at him asking him why he did that but I got no response:\ I've heard this means something bad, is that true?
  4. I don’t get it why would her parents tell you two not to do it?
  5. Congratulations! I would suggest: Rayan. This name is one of the doors to heaven and can also be pronounced Ryan by westerners. Adam. The perfect balance between Arabic and the West. Elias. In Arabic it would be pronounced Elyaas and in English Elias. Benjamin. In Arabic it would be Benyameen and in English Benjamin.
  6. Salam, why is it that while doing Umrah, the Sunnis do tawaf 7 times in the beginning only while the Shias do it 7 times in the beginning and then again 7 times at the end?

    Losing faith

    Salam Isaam, the fact that your reaching out and seeking help shows that you’re uncomfortable in this state your in and it shows that you still have faith in your heart:) Allah tells us in the Qur'an that he will test our faith and every person is tested differently. There’s no doubt that being surrounded by Muslims who practice and an Islamic community strengthens one’s faith. In your case Isaam, I advise you to get up and pray your daily prayers despite your imaan right now. Get up and pray. Try reading a duaa with God’s 99 names out loud and see how you feel. Listen to beautiful Quranic recitations on youtube. Follow Islamic reminder pages on instagram. Act upon the way you feel right now. Act before its too late. Do you realize how lucky you are that God is giving you a chance? Just by you coming on this website and seeking help shows that God wants you to find your way. He doesn’t want you to stray away. Being surrounded by non believers and people of other faiths isn’t easy. But it gives you a better reason to learn more about your duties in Islam and on how to become a better Muslim both for yourself and for God. It gives you a better reason to seek knowledge and understand any doubts you have. Please Isaam, don’t loose your faith in God. Don’t stop praying. If you loose your prayers, you loose everything.
  8. Salam, today morning I got surgery on my nose and hence cannot bend or perform wudu for around a week and half and I will only be able to pray later whilst sitting. Is it not obligatory for me to pray right now or is there something else I should and can do ? Jazzakum Allah Kheir
  9. Although a Shia Muslim myself, what I dont like AT ALL about the majority of Shias is their huge obsession with the imam ali for example. I love imam ali and respect him and everything he's done, in fact there are so many beautiful and wise things that he has taught us. However, Shias love him so much that EVERYTHING revolves around him. I have definitely heard people give him abilities he doesn't even have, compare him to the prophet and God, and its just so bad. We have a prophet called Muhammad and he's way way waaaaaaaaaay more important and should be way more respected and mentioned and praised than Imam ali. Thats my opinion.
  10. Salam, I've recently been watching lots of videos about the way animals are treated and how industries must produce millions of them in such little time because we humans are consuming way too much. The videos I've seen are brutal, not necessarily in the sense that the animals are tortured but the fact that for example there are huge closed places with over 1000 chickens squished together who are being given hormones to grow at a rate their bodies cannot stand hence lots of them end up dying or surviving but feeling pain throughout their whole life. Another example is the way sometimes cows are castrated so painfully and by force that its just horrible horrible treatment. We as Muslims must slaughter our animals in a halal way, does that also mean that they are treated with respect and receive kind and caring treatment prior to slaughter? Or do halal slaughtered animals still undergo all these horrible conditions as all the others would?
  11. No! That would just defeat the whole purpose of anything and we'd just be "existing" on this earth with no purpose, motivation, etc. Whats the point of living on earth if a whole generation of robots are doing everything to keep us alive?
  12. Loved reading your response and agree with what you've said. One question though; if someone asked you whether or not you were a feminist, what would you answer back or identify as?
  13. So I guess in the end, Islam is for equity between the two sexes rather than equality. Although in Islam a woman is guaranteed her rights as a wife etc, Islam itself still places more value, freedom, and responsibility towards the man which in itself isn't feminist. Feminism consists of many things, some of which are in the workplace and others based on an equality of treatment. When a man inherits more than a woman Islamically then that would be the antithesis of a large portion of feminist ideology. So I guess in conclusion, I can't fully identify as a feminist despite the fact that I support most of what feminism stands for.
