  1. As-salaam alaikum... Our community and nation here is in absolute shock after this horrific attack. 49 have been martyred, may Allah accept them, 48 are in hospital, may Allah help them recover successfully and comfort the families involved. There are a lot of brave stories coming out of both brothers and sisters... "Naeem Rashid reportedly died at Christchurch Hospital, after he tried to wrestle the gun from the shooter at the Al Noor mosque. His son Tahla was also shot and killed." Husne Ara Parvin was shot when she tried to save her wheelchair-bound husband Farid Uddin, according to a relative."Khala (aunt) went to the women's section of the mosque after leaving her paralysed husband at the men's section on a wheelchair," said Chowdhury. "She came out when she heard gunshots. She died on the spot as she approached the men's section to save her husband. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12213358 According to a live stream video of the attack, the man, who is yet to be identified, could be overheard saying "Hello, brother" as the gunman approached the entrance of the Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch."'Hello brother' a word came out of a pure soul filled with a peaceful faith. 'Hello brother' was said to a killer with a rifle pointed to this greeting. 'Hello brother' he said thinking that he is talking to a human with soul and feelings. 'Hello brother' was shot dead," another wrote. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/03/brother-Muslim-worshipper-words-gunman-190315152715528.html Apparently in the video, there were also others who bravely charged at the gunman, unfortunately to be shot before. Also, other stories of brothers and sisters helping each other or children, but also non-Muslims who showed courage to help those in need. I haven't watched the video and refuse to do so. Please don't watch or share it around. Our police are trying to remove uploads of it with cooperation of social media platforms. Unfortunately, since its 'out there', it most likely will be permanently. But this will be respectful to the victims and their families. It is already horrific enough what's happened, let alone, having it posted online where people are almost watching and sharing it as some type of brutal entertainment. It's sick and this is what the killer wanted. Imagine if it was your family members or friends in that being murdered I didn't know anyone personally who was subject to the attack (that I'm aware of currently), however, friends of my friends, were attending there and from what I've heard either escaped or were shot. All of our masjids nationwide were closed due to a precautionary measure in case there were terrorists in other cities. I think it's the first time as a Muslim were I actually felt uneasy and threatened going home that day. Please make dua for those recovering and the victims families.... jazak'Allah khairan
  2. Aside from the ethical issue from lying, wouldn't this also be considered stealing in ways, because your taking pay under false pretenses?
  3. Do you play such games as Amnesia, SOMA, Outlast...?
  4. Bureaucratic nonsense! I finally sorted what I wanted to order internationally, then customs tell the seller, no, you're only allowed to send him 5 hats maximum and not the 9 he wants, you cannot send him tasbih either, or the Islamic prayer decoration he wanted. Who makes such stupid regulations? They should be trying to grow their export economy, not putting such ridiculous regulations like these, I mean, what do they even base this on?! Some bureaucrat sitting behind a desk making things difficult for the sake of it.
  5. However, according to https://www.al-islam.org/greater-sins-volume-1-ayatullah-sayyid-abdul-husayn-dastghaib-shirazi/thirteenth-greater-sin It goes beyond just vaporising during cooking, because you're also purchasing and allowing the means of production? It seems the entire process is haram? One more tradition says, that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) cursed ten types of people in connection with wine: 1) One who plants a sapling with the intention of producing wine. 2) One who cultivates this sapling so that wine may be manufactured. 3) One who crushes the grapes. 4) One who drinks wine. 5) One who serves the wine. 6) One who transports wine. 7) One who takes delivery from the supplier. 8) One who sells wine. 9) One who buys it. 10) One who uses the income that is earned by (making or selling) wine.
  6. Same here. I was wiping to get my fringe area down on my forehead
  7. Yeah, the process is called Apoptosis (the destruction of cancer cells). Such items as black seed (nigella sativa), saffron, turmeric & lemongrass are said to be able to induce apoptosis. Black seed, as an example, has been laboratory tested to support this. Good to buy black seed oil and take a teaspoon a day, or add a couple of saffron strands to tea etc.,
  8. I've come across this multiple times, that there are women passed a certain perceived 'young' category that are challenged to find partners. Yet, they have all the ability, if not better to make wives. It would be interesting to see a general opinion among brothers if they would take on more then one wife and the opinion of sisters towards this idea.
  9. Make sure your knife is bigger, classic Aussie style https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W09ghiWskUk
  10. Grab a pack of sausages from the freezer and start yelling at the intruder madly in Arabic, should scare 'em away
  11. As-salaam alaikum Is anyone here doing or have completed a major in history? I'm interested to ask a few questions Thanks
  12. Salaam Can someone please help me? I became ill and had to break my fast and I've got about 8 days to make up. I couldn't even celebrate eid because of it Do I have to make these days up continuously one after the other, or can I do for example one each week? How does it work? Thanks
  13. As-salaam alaikum I need to rant about this as a revert and find out if anyone else deals with this I'm finding frustrations with cultural Muslims once again. Because I'm a revert from a European heritage side, this question keeps appearing from born Muslims, 'what's your Muslim name?' Apparently to fit better into the community, I should compromise on my heritage to take an 'Muslim' sounding name Don't people realise names are cultural, not religious! This man made construct idea of 'Muslim names', that to become Muslim, you should have to take a new name, it's not Islamic based and I find it really insulting myself, especially coming from people you speak to the first time and it's one of the first things they bring up. Don't these people realise Allah has created nations and languages to be different, not to mention, when life is given your parents decide ones name and its respectful to your parents to accept this. None of the Prophets (PBUT) changed their cultural names when they received their revelations. The brother who proposed this today, he didn't even have a 'Muslim' name (I take comparison to names from the Quran here) himself, rather he was just from a cultural background with a history of Islam. Us reverts come into Islam through faith, not by culture and for myself, I'm not giving up my culture to fall into 'Arabisation', I'm proud of my history who has made me what I am and where I'm going. I take time to learn and correctly pronounce others names, they should show me the same respect. Has or does anyone else experience this same issue?
