  1. This is really sad. They (unintentionally) took revenge against their own people (mostly). Plus partially blamed it on the flights sudden change in trajectory towards a sensitive military center.
  2. Thats a good point, my family and I are Indian/Pakistani but we are immensely more comfortable visiting an Arab center here (the IIA). Guess we are renegades?, lol. There is only one Indian/Pakistani center here but it unfortunately feels more like a socializing hub without much spiritual upliftment. Just my experience.
  3. Po dobre li e tam ?? Lipsva6 mi Bulgaria
  4. Was alaikom Salam dear brother, that's nice! How is life there?
  5. Priatno mom e Ot koi grad si Ivaylo??
  6. Thanks! No it’s not. It’s only $100 for each subject for one semester (6 months)
  7. (Bismillah) Salam Alaikom, The Islamic Institute of America has started a hawza program in the English language. I’ve started attending it and wish I had this opportunity earlier!! It is absolutely amazing! The insight and deeper understanding of Islam makes one enjoy this existence in ways that are indescribable! The subjects currently being taught are Usul ul fiqh, ilmul hadith, Arabic grammar, public speaking, Quranic sciences, usul al-kaafi ,biography of Prophet (sawaws) and Islamic laws. The main teacher is sayed Mohammad Baqir al Qazwini, may Allah reward him immens
  8. Michigander here too. My wife will be more than happy to connect with you.
  9. Jazakallah brother Wolverine!!!!pleasant surprise to see me being mentioned in a post , eid Mubarak brother!!
  10. For anyone who wants to know the REAL reason for the ban, here it is: the country just got hijacked: People seem to be missing the point entirely on this issue. Trump's action was not about 'banning muslims" - it never was. Look a little deeper below the surface of what has just occurred and consider this. The 'muslim ban' issue is a smokescreen. What this was about was testing the waters to create public chaos and bring about opposition from the supreme court, and to see if DHS could then override a supreme court order and get away with it without any public outcry. And they got away wi
  11. (Salam) I went for the Friday prayer too at the ICOFA and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. The sheikh in his sermon advised to exercise restraint towards the protesters or else I was all ready for a fight, lol.
  12. On a related note, lottery is halal as per Ayt. Sayyid Hakeem: Q [1] There is a national lottery held in our country, run by a company. Tickets are sold for a very low price, and the winners receive prizes. The company also gives some of their income in the sale of the tickets to certain charitable projects. Is a Muslim permitted to purchase such a ticket with the intention of winning the prize, and if he intends to give a part of the prize to an Islamic charity project? Apparently the said transaction is permissible, and it is not considered to be prohibited gambling. The deal
  13. What an incredibly imbecile soldier for not being aware of his surroundings. Also, the amount of respect and reverence that the Queen and the royal family is given is disgusting.
  14. (salam) I also attended UMAA and particularly the matrimonial sessions. Here's my quick take on it : 1. About 90 % of the females at the matrimonial sessions were without hijab. Some even had tight fitting and sleeveless dresses on which was appalling to say the least. Some even had the temerity to talk about their favorite music bands/groups *facepalm* 2. Sayed Ammar's talk on the signs before the reappearance of the 12th imam a.s was absolutely fantastic! I agree with his opinion that we should not wait for the fulfillment of these signs to become religious. He talked about the conce
  15. (salam) I was going to open another thread with a similar request but then I saw this one. Could someone please translate this for me or post a link with the translation? Jazakallah! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_yFw_UdTj0
  16. (wasalam) In addition to one of the above posters request (germanshia?) it would be awesome if you could share your online library with us. Most of those titles appear to be tremendously interesting! :Hijabi:
  17. Jazakallah for sharing. Made me cry. Labbayka Ya Imam (as)
  18. (salam) I attended a seminar on Khums led by Sheikh Mahdi Rastani in Dearborn but I was hesitating to answer your question because I didn't want to take the responsibility of misquoting him. Luckily, I received this email update from awaitedone.org (a couple of min. ago! ) Does it answer your question? From Shk. Mahdi Rastani: --------- Dear brothers and sisters, Salaamun Alaykum, I am composing this message with regards to one of the rulings that we discussed during our khums workshop. That is the ruling with regards to savings. It can be found on page 11 of the booklet. Although I
  19. :D if only it was so easy to become Bruce Lee... This is cheap imitation at best.
  20. I'd like to be so rich that I approach the 10th level of faith like Salman e Farsi -_-
