  1. Assalamu Alaykam, I am currently on a one-year backpacking trip around the world and I have been given two sets of information regarding my trip that I need verified. Firstly I was told that since I am travelling I do not need to fast come this Ramadan, and secondly, since I am travelling I do not need to eat food that is halal. Is this correct? I am a follower of Sayed Hassan Fadlallah (may he rest in the highest heaven). All help will be appreciated. Fi aman Allah, RayRay
  2. Assalamu Alaykam, As of May 28th I will be off trekking through the wilderness that is Africa for the next 6 months hanging out with the lions, tigers and elephants, dancing around the fire with the Masai Mara tribes and being baptised by a voodoo witch. During my travels I will be spending 2 months each in Tanzania, Kenya, and Ghana volunteering with HIV/AIDS affected children and women teaching English, Computers, Sports and running Photography workshops. If anybody would like to donate any goods that I can take with me to donate to the schools that would be great! If you need references in case you think I am just being a tight-arse and trying to score freebies that is no problem, all references will be provided. If you can donate I will only accept NEW goods. Mostly I would like to take with me sporting equipment, women sanitary needs, bed sheets, school equipment etc. Even better would be if you can donate money so I can buy the goods from there and save on extra luggage fees. I am hoping to raise enough to buy new cameras for the school I will be running the photography workshops in, and new bikes for the girls school I will be volunteering in Tanzania as that is there main form of transport (FYI I would much prefer the money donation). If you can donate let me know so I can forward on the bank details. My last day here is May 28th so get them in quick. THANK YOU!!!! Fi aman Allah, RayRay
  3. Assalamu Alaykam, Insha'Allah this year I shall be travelling through Africa, firstly teaching English in Kenya/Ethiopia/Tanzania, then enjoying the World Cup in South Africa (GOOOO AUSTRALIA!!!). Would just like to know if there are many (shia) Muslims there and most importantly is it safe? I registered with Australia's SmartTraveller website (a government initiative) and they emailed me all these warnings of kidnappings, being threatened with HIV infected blood, murders, rapes - it freaked me out, so to the people that live there can you give me the real low-down? Is it that bad or has the media/politicians just blown it all out of proportion. Thank you in advance. Fi aman Allah, RayRay
  4. Assalamu Alaykam, Insha'Allah this year or early next year I shall be travelling through South America, firstly teaching English in Brazil, then backpacking the rest. Would just like to know if there are many Muslims in this part of the world i.e Argentina, Peru, Chile, Venezuala, and most importantly is it safe? I registered with Australia's SmartTraveller website (a government initiative) and they emailed me all these warnings of kidnappings, extortion, carjackings, rapes - it freaked me out, so to the people that live there can you give me the real low-down? Is it that bad or has the media/politicians just blown it all out of proportion. Thank you in advance. Fi aman Allah, RayRay

  6. Loooooool, hahahaha, that's funny! Yeah when I read his post I thought to myself "hmmm, what a goose" :P
  7. Looooooooolllll, hahahahaha that's gold!
  8. And another sook to add to their long list of crocodile tears and typical oooh-we-are-the-victim BS mentality: http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/khatami-is-j...kd.html?page=-1
  9. Ooooh that would be great if you can give me some numbers. I live in Greenacre and don't drive so the convenience of having a local mussallah rocks! Thanks heaps!!!
  10. Hijabi sisters know their limits? How does bushwalking, or kayaking, or smiling to another sister whom initiates conversation go past their limit? How does judging another, making assumptions, and not responding to a sallam confine to their limits? (P.S my apologies if my response to your list was harsh...at my uni even though there wasn't a "list" per se I can definately say what you wrote of was put into practise, hence why I do not see the funny side of it at all. This is the crux of the issue, there are girls that think exactly as what you mentioned in your list).
  11. Just had to bump this thread. Would you fella's marry a sister that had a "condition", say was asthmatic, epileptic, diabetic. Would you marry a sister that was unable to bear any children?
  12. Assalamu Alaykam, Through the grapevine I heard a Shia Mussalah had opened in Greenacre. Anyone know where in Greenacre and who the Sheikh is that will be leading the prayers? Is there any programs there? Any info would be appreciated. Fi aman Allah, RayRay
  13. Oh man, Whispers, I know you were trying to be funny and all but that is one messed-up list. How many ugly traits that list consists of is beyond a joke, jealousy, being judgemental, and not only that, the righteous, stuck-up nature of the list in general is a turn-off and the hijabi who goes by this checklist (whether it is real or not) needs a kick up the butt, I mean seriously, judging the sister by how many guys "she picks up in the library"...is the sister joining a sorority group or something and needs to be spyed on??? If the hijabi doesn't befriend the other hijabi cause of the factors you have listed then she has done the original hijabi a favour. That list is nothing but superficial, fake and embarassing. Seriously sisters...what happened to the sisterhood? Someone says salaam, say salaam back and go on your merry way, she's just being polite not asking to marry you.
  14. It's because Muslim girls are boring. Yes I'm going to be straightforward about it and if sisters get offended then oh well, but Muslim girls are so damn boring! It's like they think to be a "good pious Muslimah" you have to have absolutely no personality, never smile and always look miserable and like your in mourning, and everything is haraam and all you are trying to do is get guys attention! "Oooh sister don't laugh too loud, that is haram and you will get guys attention, oooh sister, don't smile too much, you give the guys the wrong impression, oooh sister don't wear that many bracelets, the noise of them shaking will make the boys look at you" pfffft, stuff you and your lame advice. And then they look at you weirdly and evil-ish when you have Non-Muslim friends. I made my first Muslim friends (SC Members Shay and Iman) just two years ago, prior to that I had none. At first I tried to stick "with my own kind" but eventually I made it a deliberate decision not to befriend my Muslim sisters for the reasons above. Is it honestly so hard to smile? And to have a conversation where you are not putting down another Muslimah for not being as good as you? And not to mention marriage in every third sentence? I recall the exact moment I "barred" Muslim sisters from my life. It was first year of Uni when I joined the "Adventure Club"..it was a social group on campus were you can meet other students by partaking in adventurous activities together like kayaking, camping, skydiving, bushwalking etc etc, loool, my ears were burning afterwards, and suddenly I was hot-stuff amongst the Muslim sister circle but for all the wrong reasons. Each approached me giving me their opinion on why joining such a group isn't what Muslimahs should do, and all there reasons were so blah. After months of not returning a salaam or smiling they suddenly wanted to pass on sisterly advice???!!! Well blah to boring snobby sisters. To OP, it may seem disheartening but as others have said, don't sweat it. Even better when they don't return your salaam turn around and bellow "well you just lost 70 hasanat" real smugly :P
  15. I understand your sentiments but when the couple married many years ago he was a very open-minded tolerant man whom had no qualms with his wife being Shia. Unfortunately over the past year a radical transformation has taken place, influenced largely by Mid-East political situation and his attitude has hardened. You can never predict such a situation to occur. Marriage is a risk whether you stick to your own ilk or not. Fi aman Allah, RayRay
