  2. **^yeh, i was thinking the same thing when i read the former^^...**
  3. **the link u provided states that the scales on eel species are either cycloid or absent, cycloid meaning they are thin and overlapping, permitting flexibility...so some eels do have scales and so fall into the category of sea animals with scales and hence are not permissible to eat because of this AND because of their snake-like features...a scale is a scale, regardless of whether it is ganoid/cyloid or what have u, impermissibility is written in reference to scales and not "xyz scale", i.e. a particular scale...**
  4. Mother of the faithful Umm-e-Salama (SA) The daughter of Abu Ummayah and Atekeh, known as Umm-e-Salama was the wife of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) after Hazrat Khadija (SA), who had distinguished and worthy qualities. Her family had such special greatness and nobility that her father, Abu Ummayah, was called "Zad-ar-Rakeb" which means the "owner of gifts and generosity towards his companions and fellow travelers". Umm-e-Salama was one of the first believers who accepted Islam and migrated to Abyssinia and also to Medina for protecting the divine ideals. The Verse of Purification was revealed to the Prophet (SAW) in her house. She was famous among her relatives and friends for her kindness, affection, and loyalty. The scholars have called her the great, the learned, and the visionary lady who had helped in different situations to solve various problems. Umm-e-Salama's first husband was her cousin, Abu Salamah ibn Abdul-Asad, who was obliged to migrate to Abyssinia because of the extreme oppression of the polytheists. And it was there that their daughter, Salamah was born and after her, their son, Omar was born. Omar was wise and reflective. Since he was brought up under his mother's supervision, even in his youth he participated in all the battles along with Imam Ali (as) and before that he had been the Governor of Bahrain. Abu Salamah participated in the Battle of Ohud and was badly injured and finally passed away. This learned Muslim had clear sighted vision that led to the uprooting of wrong traditions and tribal customs. Once when Umm-e-Salamah wanted she and her husband to make a pact that upon the death of either of them the other would not remarry. Her husband said never shall we make such a pact. He then stretched his hands towards the heavens and said: "O Allah! Please grant Umm-e-Salama a better husband after my death!" After Abu Salamah's death, the Messenger of Allah (SAW) went to their house for offering his condolences to her and for soothing her pain and sorrow. He said: "O Allah! Please soothe her grief, compensate her suffering, and grant her a better substitute than her late husband. Umm-e-Salama was so distinguished in qualities of beauty, and the perfection of morals and because of that so many well-known personalities who were socially famous and wealthy asked to marry her. One can refer to Abu Bakr and Omar among them. But she accepted to marry the Prophet (SAW) with a little dowry since she was a person of insight, reflective, and also learned. She was able to find an eminent place in the Prophet's (SAW) heart after Hazrat Khadija (SA). Umm-e-Salama was a pious and learned woman who possessed eloquence and rhetoric. She owned the elixir of devotion and affection of the Prophet's (SAW) house in a way that she was ready to do anything to make the Prophet's (SAW) heart happy and remove his sorrows and grieves. She always sympathized with her dear husband. Therefore, she accompanied him in the Battle of the Ditch, the Battle of the Conquest of Mecca, the Siege of Taif, the Battle of Hawazen, Saghif and then the Farewell Pilgrimage. She was literate during the 'Age of Ignorance' of Arabia when women were looked down upon. In the Hudaybiah Truce when the Prophet (SAW) commanded the Muslims to shave their heads, to make sacrifices, and to return from Mecca to Medina according to the settlement, most of them did not obey. When Umm-e-Salama saw the Prophet's (SAW) grief, she offered a wise suggestion and said: "O Messenger of Allah! It is too hard for them to accept the settlement since they desired victory. You should stand up and go out without uttering a word, then sacrifice and shave your own head, and then they'll obey!" Afterwards all the Muslims stood up and obeyed the Messenger of Allah's command. Once she revealed her hidden thoughts to the Prophet (SAW) and said: "O Messenger of Allah! Men struggle and participate in the battles, but women don't, and they cannot be martyred. It is a great blessing that we are losing. The Prophet (SAW) explained to her the other substitute for women and said: "The woman's struggle is in her relations to her husband." And afterwards Angel Gabriel sent down the following words of Allah: "And don't covet that by which Allah has made some of you excel others; men shall have the benefit of what they earn and women shall have the benefit of what they earn; and ask Allah of His grace; surely Allah knows all things." (An-Nisa: 32) And then the follow verse was sent down. "Surely the men who submit and the women who submit, and the believing men and the believing women, and the obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women, and the humble men and the humble women, and the alms giving men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and the women who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember Allah - has prepared for them forgiveness and a mighty reward." (Al-Ahzab: 35) Umm-e-Salama's competence - which can serve as an example - made all the five Holy Ones (as) and the Imams trust in her. Thus, they would deposit their possessions with her and would even tell her their secrets. Once the Holy Prophet (SAW) informed her about events of Karbala and the martyrdom of his own dear grandson, Imam Hussain (as), in advance. He entrusted some soil of Karbala in a glass to her and said: "Whenever you see that the soil of the glass changes to blood know that my grandson, Hussain (as), has been martyred." On the 10th day of Muharram, 61 AD, Umm-e-Salama was sleeping in Medina in the afternoon. In her dreams she saw the Prophet (SAW) while he was filled with sorrow and his clothes were dusty. He said: "I'm coming from Karbala and the burial of the martyrs." Suddenly she woke up and looked at the glass, and she found that the soil had changed to blood. It was then that she knew that Imam Hussain (as) was martyred. She started to mourn and cry. Others knew not about the event and Umm-e-Salama revealed the event. This event is famous as the "Gharoureh Tradition" in the narrations.
  5. **^eels have scales too, but they are not halal, as they posses snake like features (theri tale) and any snake-like fish is not permissible to eat..surely u know this...so in effect..not ALL sea animals with scales are permissible to eat :)** ~ beetle essence is also present in wine vinegar (FAO person who enquired in the other thread), so that would make it impermissible to eat..and also that it contains extracts of wine..dah!**
  6. VEGETARIANS criticised the makers of top-selling sweet Smarties today for using an ingredient obtained from crushed beetles. The brightly-coloured snack contains a red dye processed from the dried body of the female cochineal insect, collected in central America. It produces the colorant cochineal, otherwise known as carmine or E120. The Vegetarian Society named Smarties, made by food giant Nestle, the winner of its Imperfect World Award at a ceremony in London. http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/new...arties_dye.html and also... [What is the origin of the food colouring Carmine (E120)?] Carmine is a natural red colour extracted from the bodies of insects (Dactilopius Coccus). (^an answer from Mrs Catherine Millett ~ Consumer Care Advisor @ Nestle **beetles galore**

  9. **the existence of GOD SWT is not a theory, but those which u recommend that i read are, therefore the two cannot be compared in context...** **Nahjul Balagha ~ Sermon 49** ~ **Praise be to Allah Who lies inside all hidden things, and towards Whom all open things guide. He cannot be seen by the eye of an onlooker, but the eye which does not see Him cannot deny Him while the mind that proves His existence cannot perceive Him. He is so high in sublimity that nothing can be more sublime than He, while in nearness, He is so near that no one can be nearer than He. But his sublimity does not put Him at a distance from anything of His creation, nor does His nearness bring them on equal level to Him. He has not informed (human) wit about the limits of His qualities. Nevertheless, He has not prevented it from securing essential knowledge of Him. So he is such that all signs of existence stand witness for Him till the denying mind also believes in Him. Allah is sublime beyond what is described by those who liken Him to things or those who deny Him** Nahjul Balagha ~ Sermon 64** ~ **He did not create what He created to fortify His authority nor for fear of the consequences of time, nor to seek help against the attack of an equal or a boastful partner or a hateful opponent. On the other hand all the creatures are reared by him and are His humbled slaves. He is not conditioned in anything so that it be said that He exists therein, nor is He separated from anything so as to be said that He is away from it. The creation of what He initiated or the administration of what He controls did not fatigue Him. No disability overtook Him against what He created. No misgiving ever occurred to Him in what He ordained and resolved. But His verdict is certain, His knowledge is definite, His governance is overwhelming. He is wished for at time of distress and He is feared even in bounty**
  10. **because my existence and my time in this world is a figment by man's part..i will exist in the next world too inshaAllah in a better place. As we work and live by time in this life we are able to use it as an example with one another, but with Allah SWT who is Al-'Awwal ~ The First, The One whose Existence is without a beginning and Al-Baatin ~ The Hidden, The One that nothing is above Him and nothing is underneath Him, hence He exists without a place. He, The Exalted, His Existence is obvious by proofs and He is clear from the delusions of attributes of bodies, time is not a perimeter**
