  1. Salaam Br. Ali, remember me? I tried my account and it was actually still available. I couldn't believe it, it's been forever! The site looks fantastic, even better than before, ma'shallah! Well...just popped in for a bit. Wasalaam.

  2. Assalaamu Alaykum, Thanks for the correct link. Btw, might Youth Today consider subscriptions outside of the U.K.? I know that may not be possible due to funds, but what about paid subscriptions? wa salaam
  3. Assalaamu Alaykum Jizakoum Allah khayr doctors, your expertise has shed some light. I can't imagine, as a patient, what it must feel like to be diagnosed with an idiopathic disease. I'm sure it must be hard to grapple with...for the doctors too. But alhamdullilah, like you said, it isn't always a complete mystery, but neither is it black or white. Everything is under Allah (swt)'s infinite will. I marvel at the medical advancements and technology now and try to imagine what the future might hold...insha'Allah more promise for those who need it most. May Allah (swt) allow us to take better care of ourselves and realize the precious gift of health and should it be tested, may there always be proficient doctors and adequate remedies and treatments, b'ithnillah. thanks again :) , wa salaam
  4. Assalaamu Alaykum, Thanks for your reply. Ahaa, so if a patient is given the explanation that there just isn't a known cause for their organ failure, their doctors might be mistaken? Or may not have taken the correct steps to find out why? Also, because I don't know much about this, what sort of steps other than finding out the medical history or background of the patient and their family and blood tests can be taken to find the reasons behind the failure? Again, maybe a really silly question, but what if the organ is no longer in the body? Is it definitely needed to find the reasons behind it? Have you ever heard of a case where the cause remained unknown? Thanks again, wa salaam
  5. Assalaamu Alaykum, For the past few weeks I've noticed the Youth Today magazine site isn't working, the page won't load. I keep getting a message that there is no such website. Maybe I have the wrong link to it, but I just wanted to inform those behind the magazine in case yall didn't know. Plus I wanted to read the most recent issue :) wa salaam
  6. Assalaamu Alaykum, My question is this: Is there always a known reason or cause for organ failure? Is it ever possible for doctors to come to the conclusion that there is no way of knowing exactly why an organ is no longer functioning? Or is it that with sufficient and thorough search the cause can always be known and found? For instance, if there is no obvious reason for an organ to fail or it is not contained in the family hereditary of the person in question , can doctors still find out why? Thanks...hope this makes sense. :) wa salaam
  7. Assalaamu Alaykum, I couldn't find it at the usual arabic nasheed sites I visit, but I googled it and found this site with transliteration. Enjoy. But if you ever come upon the version Hajj Muhammed Ramaal (sp?) recited it's worth listening to, but I can't seem to find it online. wa salaam
  8. Assalaamu Alaykum, I agree with this 100%. It helps a whole lot when you have someone along side with you, encouraging you, keeping you on your toes and vice versa. When I had more time a couple of years ago, my good friend and I made a point to wake up early and head to the track. No matter how tired we may have been, each of us knew that the other was going to show up at 8 a.m. ringing her doorbell until she showed up decked out in jogging gear ^_^ . And now because we don't have much time, the workout is still incorporated in our everyday lives. It sticks when you make it a habit! Plus, don't you feel just great after a good run?? Also, sisters, good advice I received, add light weight lifting to your routine. When you get much older it will pay off more than it might now, insha' Allah. Good luck with whatever workout routine you're on, may it be successful! wa salaam
  9. Assalaamu Alaykum, Wow :!!!: , a whole page of his latmiyaa, thanks so much sister. I should search the Arabic sites more often.... I'm going to like listening to these, thanks again. wa salaam
  10. Assalaamu Alaykum, I had no idea that a translated copy of Maqtal al-Hussayn (as) in English was available online. Jizak Allah khayr for posting. I'm sure there are many who would find this beneficial. For those who would like to add it to their own library it's available at al-Khoei (ra) Bookstore. Though, it doesn't contain the actual Arabic text. I wonder if it's available in other languages also, Farsi? Urdu? wa salaam
  11. Assalaamu Alaykum, I have an audio tape of a latmiyaa entitled 'Shi3ati Yoamu Ziyarah' by the reciter/qaree Fadhel al-Baladei. I haven't heard very many latmiyaa whose words have such deep meaning and significance and this is definitely one of them. I was wondering if anyone might know of other latmiyaa by this specific reciter? Thanks. wa salaam
  12. Assalaamu Alaykum, Alhamdullilah, I have really enjoyed listening to Sayed Mustafa al-Qazwini's lectures and Hajj Usama al-Attar's latmiyaa--at first I thought all of the latmiyaa would be recited in English, but he also did some in Arabic, that was nice. Mash'Allah, those in U.K. are really blessed to have such fine speakers visiting. And it seems they themselves are aware of that, from the look of the turnout from the pics. Alhamdullilah. May Allah (swt) bless all those who put their time and efforts forth and allow them to be true followers of the Ahlul Bayt (as). The Alul Bayt Foundation did a great job putting the lectures and latmiyaa up speedily. Hopefully many benefited from any lecture that was presented during the 10 days and nights of Muharram, insh'Allah. Wa salaam
  13. Assalaamu Alaykum, May Allah (swt) help your wife's friend during this difficult period. Surely Allah (swt) is the only One to look to during this time. Surely with difficulty is ease (94.6) With difficulty is surely ease (94.6) And We do not lay on any soul a burden except to the extent of its ability (23.62) Therefore endure with a goodly patience (70.5) And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient (2.155) Imam Husayn [a] said: "O Lord! You are the nearest one Whom can be requested from; You are the soonest responder, and You are the most gracious in bestowing; Whose gift is the vastest and You hearken the best to what you are asked for. I call to You, O' the Beneficent in this world and the next, and the Merciful in both of them!" --'Arafah Invocation Call upon Me, I will answer you (40:60) And a powerful saying of Ameerul Mumineen (as): "O Allah, we do not ask you for a light burden but for strong backs." InshAllah this helps some. She is in our dua'aa, inshAllah khayr. wa salaam
  14. Assalaamu Alaykum, I highly recommend al-Khoei Islamic Bookstore and Fadak Books. I know for fact that al-Khoei ships out of the U.S., but not sure about Fadak Books. I'm sure if you asked they might be willing to. I've ordered many times from both and they are both trustworthy and safe. Fadak Books has an awesome collection of rare Arabic books and Al-Khoei has a greater selection of English books. Both about or around the list price of the books. And both of them do carry " A Bundle of Flowers". But I warn you, you may be going in looking for one book and come across many others you might also want. Happens to me all the time ^_^ . I ordered long time ago from Dar Tabligh in Tanzania (I think). They have a good collection also, the prices are quite low, yet it took a lot of e-mailing back and forth before I finally received the books. Oh and if you're a fellow book-lover, your best bet is if you ever find yourself in Iran, definitely visit Ansariyan, they'll even ship the books to your final destination! Good Luck! wa salaam
  15. Assalaamu Alaykum, :o That's is just so wrong. Tssssk, it's sad seeing a cat that heavy :( . You guys should take better care of your cats, you do want them to live a long, healthy life inshAllah? I'm sorry I just get defensive when I see ppl purposely abuse their animals. And my apologies if your cat has oddly, but naturally gained all that weight. Have any idea how much she weighs? I once saw a report on the news of the dangers that humans risk when they put their pets on the same eating regimen as their own. Turns out a lot of ppl, and without even knowing it, do that. Br. Kizilbash the pics you posted are sooooo adorable! What cute kittens! I especially loved the 2nd pic. SubhanAllah, how precious and cute the creation of Allah (swt) can appear to be. This is my little bezoona (or gouta if you prefer ^_^ ), I've posted a few pics of her before on the forum, but I can only find this one for now. Not very clear though: Ain't she a sweety :wub: ? But there was a much better pic of her I posted waaay back...will look for it. wa salaam alaykum That pic doesn't seem to be coming up, but hopefully this link works: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?ac...e=post&id=47108
  16. Assalaamu Alaykum, Thanks for the replies. ^_^ lol, thanks br. asifnaqvi. What is siprit though? I don't think I have ever heard of it, is it anything like hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol? I decided to search and I found this article on tetanus boosters. The section on rusty nails just about convinced me :squeez: . I can hardly remember the last time I received one. But no, it isn't like I'm squeamish at the thought of getting a shot. It is best to be safe than sorry. I'm just glad for now it isn't throbbing or anything like that. Sis whizbee, if Allah forbid you should ever need a shot your health and well being is what should be placed ahead of your fear (I take it that's what it is if you say you'd rather die). C'mon conquer your fears! :) Thanks again y'all. wa salaam alaykum
  17. Assalaamu Alaykum, I stepped on a rusted nail today hidden snugly in the grass <_< . I've heard of ppl getting shots in such cases, but is some sort of shot necessary to fight a possible infection. It went in through my shoe, about half an inch into the bottom of my foot. Of course painful at the moment, but not so much now. I've cleansed the area with a mild antiseptic and applied some Neosporin. I'm sort of worried if I should get a shot or not? :unsure: Thanks. wa salaam alaykum
  18. Assalaamu Alaykum, Bump up. I'd just like to give this at the max. 100 views before I let it descend for good. In hopes that it might get some more assistance, inshAllah. :) Thanks, wa salaam alaykum
  19. Assalaamu Alaykum, I was skimming through some of the ahadeeth in The Islamic Family Structure when I came to the section- Do Not Marry Such Women it went on to give some the traditions of Nabi Muhammed pbuh and Imam Ali (as) of women whom not to marry. What caught my attention was the following ahadeeth: (1) The Prophet (pbuh) said: The worst of your women are the ones who are sterile; filthy; stubborn; disobedient; disgusted by the family, and dear to themselves; disobedient to the husband and submissive to others. [ibid] (2) He also said: Three things have a bad omen: a woman, a quadruped and a house. A woman's bad omen is in her nuptial gift and sterility. [ibid] (3) The Prophet (pbuh) said: Should I not introduce the worst women? Those who are not respectable in their own family; who are haughty to their husbands; who are sterile; who are malicious; who do not stop doing evil deeds; who adorn themselves in the absence of their husbands, and do not adorn themselves in his presence; who are disobedient to their husbands, and do not please them in their own privacy; who do not accept their husband's apology and do not forgive them. [bihar al-Anwar, v.100, p.235] I was wondering why sterility is considered and viewed as an omen or the worst trait in a woman? The inability to produce offspring is not always something a woman has brought upon herself, but many women do marry despite that. I'm curious as to why it's been listed along with such characteristics as disrespect or evilness when barrenness in a woman is the will of Allah (swt). Or does this mean avoid marrying such women who are sterile due to advanced age? The remainder of the traditions on 'Do not marry such women' can be found here. Thanks wa salaam alaykum
  20. Assalaamu Alaykum, In brevity, Amina Haydar as-Sadr (rahmaat Allah alayha), who came to be known as Bint al-Huda is the sister of Ayatullah ashaheed Sayyed Muhammed Baqir as-sadr (qas) born in Kadhimya, Iraq. She is a writer,thinker, teacher and activist. She had a major role in increasing Islamic awareness among the women of Iraq encouraging them through her writings to live their lives by the values and morals of Islam. She championed along side her brother for the rights of those oppressed and silenced by Saddam and the Ba'aath regime. Calling upon the Iraqi ppl to resist and challenge this unjust regime. After being placed under house arrest and adamantly refusing to yield to the demands of this criminal regime, Imam Muhammed Baqir as-Sadr and his sister, Amina were imprisoned on April 5th 1980 and on April 8th 1980 (some reports say April 9th) were martyred, after being subjected to unimaginable torture. This is one of the greatest losses in history. They truly gave their lives fi sabillah, from the beginning to the end for what they firmly believed in. By their writings and lectures they helped educate their people, urging them to rise and keep the movement of the Islamic Revolution alive. Unfortunately there is so little available on the role Bint al-Huda (ra) played in this movement, I hope that will soon change, inshAllah. This is very brief, but there is such a great deal one can gain upon reading up on the lives of these noble martyrs. May Allah (swt) continually shower their souls with the blessings of the shuihida. You can find out more with these links, http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Cyprus/8613/index.html and http://www.geocities.com/anilazaidi/islami...huda/index.html. I'm sure anyone who reads but a few words of their remarkable lives will be intrigued and deeply inspired. Hope this helps somewhat, wa salaam alaykum
  21. Assalaamu Alaykum, :o How awful!! :angry: Those who inflicted this pain on this Muslimah are cowards and nothing more! How sad that ignorance and hatred can lead a person to commit such an act. She obviously came away from this as the defiant and strong one. MashAllah she remains steadfast in her deen, despite all the obstacles she has faced. This is another meaning of jihaad. May Allah (swt) grant this woman enduring patience. Thanks for posting sis. Alhamdullilah, articles like these can help give strength to those of us who may find difficulty practicing our faith in the West because of what we may face, but reading this and knowing that there are others who have experienced far worse makes our difficulties seem far less. wa salaam alaykum
  22. Assalaamu Alaykum, MashAllah 2 Bintal Hudas! Wonderful to see sisters who admire and love Bint al-Huda (rahmaat Allah alayha). May Allah (swt) bless you both for your sincere love and remembrance of this Shaheedah. Sister BintAl Huda, thank you very much for this link. Although I did have that picture, I enjoyed the other pics also available in that link. They are very beautiful :cry: . Sister BintIl Huda, the book, Mudhakkarat Sajeenah sounds wonderful, of course not because of what it's about-that is tragic, but of the information it provides to the reader, the insight it gives us. My heart aches at not having it, but most likely never being able to obtain it from the U.S. The pictures you described are exactly the sort I am looking for. Have you any idea where I may be able to purchase this book, or anybody who may be willing to part with it and sell it?? I really need it. If that's not possible, could you or anybody reading this that has this book, scan the specific pages and post them?? I know I'm asking a great deal but this is of dire importance to me. Thank you for bringing this book to my attention! InshAllah khayr, I'm hoping for the best. wa salaam alaykum
  23. Assalaamu Alaykum, Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. MashAllah, he has such an extraordinary gift from Allah (swt). To make such paintings by the stroke of a brush..subhanAllah. Since I first saw the painting 'Ashourah' I've always wondered who painted it. It's everywhere, Islamic calendars, audio cd's and casettes, posters, etc.. He must have received inspiration directly from the heart to capture the image he portrayed on canvas. Thanks for posting, I finally know the artist behind this painting. Jizak Allah Khayr, wa salaam alaykum
