    salam, as some of you know, my last topic was a question of how to help my anxiety of death, and alhamdullilah a few people answered, but although it did help me, my anxiety keeps coming back, and the fact is that when i think of death i always get scared, some nights i would have panic attacks, and i just feel like i need help from people rather than going to a doctor etc. so it would be great if someone could please comment on how i can accept death.

    Asalam dear, 


    Listen to Surah Rehman for 7 days. Once a day. You Must listen to the whole surah.

    My mother told a relative to do this. They were going through a lot of (high stage) anxiety.

    after listening to surah rehman they were cured and anxiety was completely gone, Alhamdullilah. It’s been 3 years,and they’ve not had anxiety :)

    TRY IT! It’s the cure for everything (another woman I heard - she followed this course and her breast cancer was cured)

    apread this to everyone

    why do we hear that person from grave appears in dreams and tells their problems like my grave has some water coming to it? and many people say voices from graves like yelling at night? why all of this happens?

    I don’t know much about this, but I do know when you see a dead person in your dream saying anything regards to water in their grave. I think it’s a message to sort / raise the grave or something so water stops going in. My uncle had this dream once about a relative, and they had to raise the grave - or sort it ( I don’t know how they do this)

    While learning languages is a great endeavor, you want to make sure you learn in a sustainable and productive way. Simply dedicating a solid week to writing sentences won't be enough. You need to also understand how the individual words in the sentence come together to form the sentence, in other words, learn the grammar of the language, this alongside doing practical learning such as translating, writing sentences, speaking activities, and reading. And you want to actually create a schedule and stick to it, that means studying the language a certain amount of times a week -- preferably daily -- and consistently sticking to it. That means you should also pick a language you're interested in because you'll  need to keep motivation up, especially during the moments you feel like you're not learning anything or it gets boring. One week challenges might be fun and you might learn somethings but if you really want to learn a language well then keep all this in mind.

    For those wanting to learn Arabic I'd recommend you check out the reprint of the madeena books (seven books now rather than the original three). I personally liked Wheeler Thackston's grammar of Quranic Arabic, Alan Jone's grammar of Quranic Arabic is also very good and more palatable for people who don't know anything about grammatical terms. Wright's grammar is a good intermediate grammar.

    For Farsi I liked Lambton's Persian Grammar, Thackston also has a good book. I've also heard good things about the Easy Persian website.


    And while we're in the business of recommending languages, I'd recommend Syriac to those interested in early Islamic history and/or want to understand the types of Christianity the Prophet would have encountered. Thackston's grammar of Syriac, Coakley's paradigms, and Noldeke's Compendious Grammar as a reference for syntax would leave you with a pretty good understanding of the language. And maybe Ancient Egyptian just for fun (refer to Alan Gardiner's grammar). 

    I see what you’re saying. But I don’t think everyone has the time or dedication to spend hours working out the grammar or learning the root words. I know this would be a great benefit to me, as grammar is part of learning a language. I will probably consider this in the future.

    This ‘really’ was an idea for those who have a busy life style. Giving 2-3 minutes every few hours everyday (just memorising a sentence or a 2) won’t be difficult. So we can also have that ‘feel good’ moment that we have achieved something. See Allah loves those who at least try. 

    Oh btw it’s not just for a week we’ll carry on learning more (the same language chosen) everyweek inshallah. 

    And you never know may end up taking actual language lessons. (That’s if my little one is in a good mood:accident:)

  4. *Nine Lessons from Surah Hujurat*

    "When a glass breaks, the sound of breaking disappears immediately, whereas the glass pieces are scattered all over, hurting whoever walks over it".
    Similarly, "When you say something that hurts someone's emotions and feelings, your words disappear, but in the heart remains pain for long."
    Therefore, don't say anything except good and always remember the nine advises and prohibitions that Allah has given in Surah Hujurat (The Surah of manners) before you say anything to anyone:
    "Fa Tabayyanu": Investigate: whenever you receive an information, lest you harm people out of ignorance.
    "Fa Aslihu": Make settlement: between your brothers as believers are brothers.
    "Wa Aqsitu": Act justly: whenever there is a dispute try for settlement and act justly among both parties as Allah loves those who act justly.
    4.-لا يسخر:
    "La Yaskhar": Don't ridicule people, perhaps they may be better than you to Allah.
    5.-ولا تلمزوا: 
    "Wa La Talmizu": Don't insult one another.
    6.-ولا تنابزوا:
    "Wa La Tanabazu": Don't call each other with offensive nicknames.
    7.-اجتنبو كثيرا من الظن:
    "Ijtanibu Kathiiran min Aldhan": Avoid negative assumptions, indeed some of the assumptions are sins.
    8.-ولا تجسسوا:
    "Wa La Tajassasu": Don't spy on each other.
    9.-ولا يغتب بعضكم بعضا:
    "Wa La Yaghtab": Don't backbite about each other. It's a major sin equivalent to eating your dead brother's flesh.

    Lastly, Allah says in the Qur'an 

    "Remind, because the reminder benefits believers".

  5. Ok great! So if you have chosen the language you want to learn, then follow these steps (they would help)

    - write few sentences on a piece of paper ( in the language you have chosen)

    - stick them on the walls (eg: sitting room, kitchen) mostly where you spend your time the most. 

    - and keep practicing, keep reading and repeating them all day long 

    - end of the day we’ll test ourselves how well we’ve done today

    - and then share how much we have learnt on shiachat! :cuddle:

    We will carry this on for a week.

    So we’re starting today!

    Want to Meet a Freemason as soon as Possible.

    Lol my husband did few days ago... he was a pretty normal guy. They defend themselves a lot saying we have been portrayed by the media in a very wrong way. (LoL)

    he was trying to convince my husband Islam is a very bad religion and freemasonry is something we all need today... :hahaha:

    Salam brothers and sisters

    i have a weird experience everything I go to the local food store there is a man who works in one of sections he calls me names like beautiful and says to my child your so nice like your mum 

    i always avoid him but sometimes my child runs into his section and he notices us

    in my area this is the only food store to go to another one I would have to get the bus 

    what would you do in this situation 

    Lol I would be straight and say ‘with all due respect, please could you stop saying these things to me or to my child, just pray that we become good human beings brother. I hope you don’t mind this.’ And maybe make that look as if you’ve really had enough. And always smile when you go to the store lol x

    تعلّمْ لسان القرآن فإنها تنفعك جداً في الدنيا وفي الآخرة

    learn the language of the quran for indeed, it will benefit you in the dunya as well as the akhirah.

    Ofcourse, no one can deny that,we should all learn Arabic, but there are also many other languages that we can learn and can benefit others. We could also learn Farsi, pushto, Swedish etc.. you should learn languages as many as you can, so that you can help the Islamic cause and spread the message in another language.

  9. Salam ya’all

    I have been planning to learn ‘a’ language for almost 2 years (hehe) but never had the motivation:einstein:

    sooo I thought it would be a good idea to create a one week language challenge.. if you guys are interested? End of every week we can share our experiences.. and comment every few days on how well we’re doing - which would motivate us to learn more :pushup:

    i plan to write sentences (in the language I am yet to decide) on a paper and stick them on the fridge walls etc.This will help me practice words and sentences :) 

    You can choose any language you want to learn.


    I’ll give you guys a language to learn (maybe few words)?

    anyone interested?

    I have 4 wives, none are complaining. Cause menz earnz moniez and it flawz like honiez


    Interesting topic.

    It would be difficult to do justice between the 2 wives. However, if one wife (I think :accident:) is forgiving, then he will have it easy on the day of judgement. Although.. if both wives are mean and unforgiving then god knows better.

    Only ‘Allah’ will judge us on that very day, I mean that poor guy can breathe ‘hoping’ of Allah’s ‘forgiveness’. Imagine if Allah gave the wives the authority to judge? (Oh god) :censored:

    See, Allah is not only ‘just’ but kind, loving, and forgiving.

    The judgement of Allah for that person won’t just be on ‘justice’. If the husband has tried his utmost to keep them both happy, of course we are human beings and make mistakes.
