  1. Salaam Mrs Habib for rejoining the www.shiatutor.com as a student.

  2. There is a Shia School that is called Online Shia Education Center that I know www.shiatutor.com and www.shiamadrasaa.com this shia school has made a good way in teaching Quran and Tajveed to our community kids and youth.

  3. http://sistani.org/local.php?modules=nav&nid=5&cid=469 Question: Is it permissible for a boy of fifteen years to have a girl friend? Answer: Friendship with a non-mahram is not allowed. So, that should pretty much answer your question.
  4. Thanks for the update - much appreciated.
  5. (salam) I thought it might be an idea for people who know where there are polling booths in Australia for Iraqi's to vote this coming weekend to post them up! So.. anyone know???
  6. (salam) I'm not quite sure where you're going with this topic, but I will try to answer your questions as best I can. Fear as in be afraid of this person? Or fear as in fear losing them? Generally, if a woman likes a man she will not be afraid of him - unless he's given her a reason to be, or she's incredibly shy. I don't think women "play hard to get". Some women simply are hard to get and some women just don't want to be got! Gosh, the possibilities are endless. It usually means she's just not that into you and wants to move on before too many emotions are tied up. I hope that helps
  7. (salam) I have spent much time considering whether I should reply to this topic and decided that I have a few things that I want to say, even though they are extremely personal to me. Whether the OP is right or wrong to remove her children from their father is not for me to judge. There is only one judge and that is Allah. I am here to post, albeit very briefly, my experience. I was abused from the age of 6 to the age of 14 and there were three perpetrators, all living under my roof and one who was not. I showed no outward emotional signs and there was never a mark on my body to show what
  8. Eyebrows, nail polish and makeup, among many other things, have been done to death on this forum. Sister Strawberry answered this question here (hope it's okay to cut and paste... thanks Strawberry!) Ayatollah Syed Sistani: Q: What is the ruling for plucking of the eyebrows in general, and what is the ruling if it is just to clean, and is it obligatory for a woman after plucking to cover her plucked eyebrows before non-mahram men? A: It is permissible and covering is not obligatory. Q: Is it permissible for a woman who does not cover her face, to remove hair from her face and style her eyebr
  9. (salam) In my humble opinion, people need to realise that social networking sites are just like walking outside. If you don't want people to see you without your hijab, don't walk out of the privacy of your own house without it. You have your "privacy settings" when you walk out of your house by covering to whatever extent you choose. Think about your own personal "privacy settings" when you post pictures on-line and you won't have to worry about networking sites and their own complex little rules.
  10. Yes, there doesn't seem to be any reason why you cannot. But, again, I'd consult with a reproductive endocrinologist to get the best regime to suit your situation.
  11. Potatoes are my weakness. I sympathise!
  12. Salam Alaykum Pomegranate - hopefully my previous post answers your question about the adverse effects I had from Metformin. Yes, I have seen a few dieticians. All of them have told me my diet is perfect and they can't really help me. The only thing I have found to really benefit, not with weight loss but with how I feel, is cutting out starchy foods (crisps, potatoes, pastas etc) and eating lots of legumes. BUT, PCOSers tend to crave those starchy foods, so it's not an easy one to go with!
  13. The test for insulin resistance takes an hour or so, and your general practitioner can order it for you. They do a glucose tolerance test (or GTT). They take a fasting glucose blood test, then give you a glucose drink (mine tasted like liquid jelly beans - way too sweet!) and then wait a period of time and retest your blood to see how your body processed the glucose. I had a few side effects from the Metformin - one major one that surprised my endocrinologist was that I put on 10kg in 2 months, with constant tummy upsets - so it didn't make sense! I had major headaches and lots of dizzine
  14. It sounds like you are fortunate enough to have a fairly mild case of PCOS, but I am sorry that this is something that you are dealing with, at whatever level. Metformin is the diabetes medication you are thinking about. Have you been tested for insulin resistance? This is a good indicator as to whether Metformin will be useful for you. I would highly recommend that you see a reproductive endocrinologist before you start this medication. They will assess your exact situation and make sure that you are closely monitored. Like all medications, it comes with side effects. I was on Metformin
  15. (salam) As a sufferer of PCOS for 20 years, I would like to express my gratitude to the OP for wanting to raise awareness of such an awful disease. I have experienced everything PCOS could possibly throw at me, and am currently dealing with being pre-cancerous, as a direct result of the PCOS. As for these ridiculous comments that should not come from a ShiaChat Admin... How insensitive! I lived a very healthy childhood, in a healthy environment, eating healthy food, exercised regularly, and was married young. So throw that theory out the window. Yes, PCOS is genetic. Perhaps this genet
