  1. @Haji 2003 Ashura cereal. [Edit] Also called Noah's pudding. The name comes from the historical fact that Noah's ark came to rest on the 10th of Muhharam(Ashura) and it was him who made this for the first time in history using whatever left over supplies he had. Desis make haleem on Ashura which is similar in the sense that it also has lots of different types of grains, carbohydrates etc.
  2. I am surprised so few people like Autumn, when trees turn into flaming torches, the rustle of crisp leaves under your feet sounds like music to ears and there is a beautiful sadness in the air.
  3. Because we are worse than non-muslims maybe,in their eyes.
  4. I understand what you are saying. This is useless advice unless accompanied by some practical suggestions. In my opinion, no. It's okay to feel angry, sad, upset, depressed, emotionally drained etc. Just like a person needs time and space to mourn the death of a family member in the same way he should be allowed to feel dejected, hurt and so on. Fighting these emotions is counterproductive. Moving on can come only after acceptance, you will find a solution only after you acknowledge a problem. Having said this, a person should keep things in perspective from a religious point of
  5. That's not relevant. My point was that there is no such like escaping from the sins by moving to another country. I understand in some places there is less chance of falling into sin,for example in most 'islamic' countries you cannot drink or gamble openly, women are generally more covered up, finding halal jobs maybe easier but problems like disobeying parents, jealousy, qate rehmi, envy, lying, backbiting are all pretty common in Muslim countries too, and these are all major sins.In the end it comes strengthening your own faith and taqwa. @IbnSina
  6. ....moving to where? There is corruption everywhere.
  7. Interacting with those less enlightened than us is a struggle,no doubt, but it helps us grow in faith and as a person. If done correctly it helps develop in us traits like strong moral values and sabr. A person cannot grow unless he experiences conflict with his surroundings. So take this difference as something positive and a opportunity to grow in faith and ethics. Remember, almost all of the Prophets(as) lived amongst people who were polytheists and indulged in Haram so you might want to study some of their lives for more practical example.
  8. So both nikkah and divorce pronounced in languages other than Arabic would be valid as long as the meaning is conveyed clearly.
  9. On the basis of precaution, the formula (Nikah) of marriage contract should be pronounced in correct Arabic. And if the man and the woman cannot pronounce the formula in correct Arabic, they can pronounce the Nikah in any other language https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2346/
  10. @Hassan- Not contradicting you but just thinking that if nikkah can be prounounced in other languages, if we can do niyyah of salat and soum in other languages then divorce should be valid too,if pronounced in other languages?
  11. @Aflower I am not the one dragging anything here. You are one who sent me the PM after mods had closed the thread. You are the one who started a new thread after the earlier thread was closed by mods and stated how I had ruined your thread, so how am I the one dragging anything? I am not jumping any guns , the first line of my post said that I browsed the forum after replying to your PM. I didn't bother to read the rest of your post. Calm down. Mods, maybe this needs to be closed too but ask the OP first in case she has another melt down.
  12. I will repeat the same things I said in my PM since I saw this thread after replying there. The title of your thread was 'nakshwani' , the opening post discussed nakshwani 's looks in detail so you saying it later that it isn't about nakshwani doesn't change much. I found it very distasteful that a woman should discuss a namehram's man's looks. We are asked to lower our gaze, aren't we? If nakshwani's dresses inappropriately then openly discussing namehram men's looks isn't very appropriate either. I am not sure if discussing him here is going to make him change his dress sense but i

    Tsk...tsk.... No wonder he doesn't have good things to say about 'keyboard warriors' [Edit] @Aflower Your thread reminded me of my Ziyarat trip. The number of married women going potty for him...(You live in Britain, I guess you will understand the expression, rest consult the dictionary, I couldn't think of a better one) It was shameful to watch actually,as they tried to ask awkward questions from his brother about his private life... 'What does he eat for dinner?' 'Is he a very dominant kind of person in private life?' 'look I also have tattoos on my wrist, I will pull back

    Yes! and if it really bothered me that much I would stop listening to her, that's all. I would too if my wife was commenting on other men's eye brows.

    Your friend observes him really closely. Why doesn't she just listen more and watch less. I am not supporting any scholar...no sorry,human(male or female) wearing form fitting clothes but in the end it none of our business really.
  16. @Irfani313 it is more commonly known as Dua ya Man Azhar al Jamil https://www.duas.org/yaman.htm You will not find it in Mufatih as such. The first two lines من أظهر الجميل، وستر القبيح، يا من لم يؤاخذ بالجريرة، يا من لم يهتك الستر، يا عظيم العفو، يا حسن التجاوز، يا واسع المغفرة، يا باسط اليدين بالرحمة ارحمني، يا صاحب كل نجوى، يا منتهى كل شكوى are a part of Dua joshan Kabeer section 22.
  17. Errr.... I reckon the female students will first undergo induced lactation (artificial milk production without being pregnant) first? Or maybe they all suffer from galactorrhea? Or is the mere act of suckling enough according to these revered personalities?
  18. @roses if you think you could be suffering from clinical depression you need to see a doctor. Other than that I would say sometimes the solution lies not in fighting off something but accepting it. Alhumdollilah this sadness is not taking you away from Allah. This world was never meant to be a happy place for believers. Salat ul layl cures sadness.
  19. Lol.Happens to me all the time when I am browsing SC before bedtime and I doze off only to wake up a couple of hours later and find myself on the Shiamatch instead of Shiachat.
  20. What's the point now? The damage is done. Hundreds of Saudi funded deobandi mosques, madrassas and schools are running in Pakistan and churning out mindless, brainwashed salafis who will happily kill the 'kaffir shias'
  21. I have seen girls get by with full faces of natural makeup while going to harrams so probably eye lash extensions won't be a problem but why wear them? Seriously..try leaving dunya behind for a change? You are going to visit the Imams(as) does the length or thickness of your eye lashes really matter? Ask your OB/GYN to put you on meds that would delay the periods until you come back from ziyarah.
  22. Okay,lol not exactly a burning question but can I wish easter to my christian co-worker?
