  1. Ramadan Karim Fellow Members :) I thought this would be a wholesome topic for us to share... Dates with plain yogurt is my favourite food to open my fast with... followed by a soup or light meal. Iltimaase Dua.
  2. Ramadan Karim Fellow Members. I thought this would be a nice topic for us to have and share about. I am sure many of use have atleast one Ramadan Moto ie something bad we wish to give up or good we wish to adapt and hopfully by neaxt Ramadan have acheived... Insha'Allah! ...and good luck whatever it is. ;)
  3. ...well actually it was awful! I couldnt stop retching afterwards. It took me quite awhile to come over it.
  4. Salaam Fellow Members. Did Aaishah bint Abu-Bakr with her sister Asma, along with Hafsah bint Omar and Ramlah bint Abi-Sufyan, become a whor after the demise of Rasulallah (pbuh)?
  5. Salaam fellow members. When I was taught how to perform the Wudu I was told that although Im left-handed I must start my Wudu from the right side first. Recently someone told me that actually its the otherway round. Please can someone give some guidance about what should a left-handed person do with regards to wudu and ghusal. TX
  6. Ramadan Karim Fellow Members. Yesterday I swallowed a hair while I was Fasting, accidently ofcourse. I tried to cough it out but it was impossible as it had gone too further into my throat. Also Im not fully sure whether the hair was mine, the cats or some fine fibre-like thread, obviously I didnt see it from before and difficult to judge at that stage when it was too late! Is my Fast nullified?
  7. The smell is there but still not as bad as other pets ie mice.... rats are the worst - you cant beat them no matter how often you clean their cage!
  8. Salaam Brs/Srs. Does anyone have a simple recipe of Kuku / Kookoo (savoury cakes) ... the potato ones please? I have tried but they dont turn out so good! :wacko:
  9. Salaam. I gave my goldfish' final farewell in the river, as she was a water creature I thought it better sent off in that way... incase anyone was concerned thats all. W/S
  10. Greetings. No hard feelings... I had some old bath toys from when I was small, Brownie plays with them now - thought better put to some use rather than stored away. I think Im going to miss her when she returns home! Thanks. God bless.
  11. Salaam. Actually I do now feel guilty of giving Brownie some beatings Im not normally like that infact I do most of her looking after ie meals, cleaning, bathing etc even extras like I never forget to give her the vitamin drops (btw us I even put a few drops of those in my sister's drink - just to see if there were any changes in her mind you nothing happens to her), also I often give her treats you know like doggy biscuits that sort of thing (also that way she may leave mine alone)! Also I have been trying to train Brownie things like throw and fetch such as fetch my slipper, the problem is she fetches it but then refuses to give it, it becomes a real struggle tying to take it out of her mouth often tearing or causing some sort of damage, my slipper is ok but once she tore my mum's which got me into trouble, when I give her my sister's things hoping the worst she throws it away! Talk about biting the hand that feeds.
  12. Salaam. Your very welcome sis... Khush-Aamadid Dont worry about Brownie - she will return home soon (It will be a relief for us all believe me)!
  13. Salaam Thanks to all who were concerend about Hamdi and me... there is no need to be anxious anymore as we have patched things up. I couldnt bear the thought of Hamdi being upset with me so I decided to end this silent treatment by going to her house and speaking to her directly - first an apology then an explanation was what I had in mind plus something sweet as a token of friendship. So I went out to buy her a packet of twix (so its easier for her to share) and took Brownie with me, on the way back Brownie picked up a dog fight with some large mongrel on the streets, she seriously has a lack judgement I tell you - the thing was four times her size - forget her I had to make a real quick escape for my own life! Once home (I never thought Id make it) I took a sigh of relief then cornered her to the wall and gave her a good hiding - she nearly cost me my life aswell as hers. Then I was about to leave for Hamdi's place (thought it safe to leave Brownie home) I was about to open my front door when I accidently trampled over Brownie... (my fault as I wasnt watching where I was going - too much in the thoughts of Hamdi I suppose) Brownie screamed, I was stunned, then Brownie made an attack for my legs, I pushed her off me but she caught my arm then ouch - she bit my wrist... well she got another good hiding for that (remind her whos the boss again) till she quietened down. Eventually I left for Hamdi house. There I gave her the choc, told her what I had to and added Brownie didnt just give you a hard time you know atleast you went home and thats it... I still have to live there and showed her the bite mark on my arm... at this point Hamdi burst into tears and said she was always my friend but was abit shaken up because of what happened (she ought to stay at my place for a day to know what that really means). Anyway Hamdi insisted I stay for dinner, I thought she had already eaten (there was chicken bones lying everywhere), anyways we had curry and rice (somalian style). Then I left for home with Hamdi making a fuss as usual, happy that Iv made up with my friend Al-Hamdulillah.
  14. ... after I said this to my mum she cried (this is why I feel so bad now) Playing a mild prank on her I can deal with but upsetting her I hate myself for it. My sister couldnt care less!
  15. Salaam Brs/Srs. Can a person ever be too clever or intelligent enough as to no longer need to show politeness and respect towards his/her parents? My sister's friend Yasmin invited us at her place so my mum, my sister and myself went... we were received by Yasmin and her mum. During our evening as their guests I noticed that Yasmin was constantly putting her mother down with gestures and words in front of us. Now Yasmin's mum is quite a simple person and not very educated back home ie in her country of origin however she put in alot of effort to get Yasmin some good education here who now as a result has a good career. This got me quite annoyed especially as my sister (who too has a good job and thinks she is someone out of this world) also treats my mum not good and takes her for granted. I felt out of place and returned home early. Back home that evening my sister said something to my mum and I got angry - we had a shuffle which is not unusual. My mum made a stop to it and took my sisters side as usual, even thought it was for her. I then told my mum even thought you dont love me like her I still cannot bear anyone treating you bad because you are my mother and no matter how much a child exceeds its parents it willl always remain below them and its about time my sister started treating you with some respect. Now matter how mischevious I can be I still know my bounderies when it comes to parents. My sister said Im childish and refused to accept any fault of hers! Now is it that once children educate above their parents level or have high-rate job they begin to think they no longer need to respect them because they are more clever? In my views no matter how much they have accedmically achieved - they are still dum! There are two things in this world one can never exceed, one is God/Allah and the other is parents - thus demands respect! What do you think?
  16. Cloie died while I was out and my sister ruthlesly threw her to the vicious cat nextdoor who rejected it - cats here are used to high-class meals! I came home to find poor Cloie on the doorstep like an abandoned body. I picked her up andbrought her in. Pets for whatever reason are domesticated for our purpose be it help, company or love and deserve to be appreciated and given some consideration. Cloie was given to me as a free gift and over the two years she had grown from being tiny flimsy thing to a healthy plump beautiful fish. I couldnt believe it when I came home to find her like that.
  17. Salaam Fellow Brs/Srs. My pet fish sadly died a few days ago. How should I dispose it? I had her for over two years and became quite fond of her and cannot bear to throw her in the bin or flush her down the lavatory like waste, its inhumane. How should pets be given the final farewell in Islam ie burial, sea or cremation? Please.
  18. Salaam All :mellow: Tx all for your concerns, replies etc..... I feel really bad about what happened especially as poor Hamdi actually came to see me (my pet fish recently died and I was quite upset about it). Little did she know that she would have a narrow escape from an angry dog! I feel so bad. What should I do to cheer her up? (Btw us Brownie has been giving me a hard time too, I made a plate of stir-fry noodles and left them on the table to cool down then came back and discovered Brownie had already eaten them)! By the way there was no bites or any blood like woulds... maybe some scratches mainly to her clothes and her hijab outfit (long maqnaeh and over-skirt). I Thank Allah as it could have been much worse.
  19. Salaam Fellow Brs/Srs. I have (or had until very recently) a good friend called Hamdi (Somalian girl) but recently we have had a fall out. A few days ago she came over to my house, I led her through the living room and told her to take a seat while I just go upstairs for a minute... I forgot to tell Hamdi that for the past week my Mum is taking care of our Aunts dog Brownie (a yorkshire terrior) while she is staying in hospital. Anyway I had already put Brownie in the kitchen before Hamdi came as I know she doesnt like dogs. However I missed closing the kitchen door carefully and no sooner I went uptairs Brownie came out of her basket and seeing Hamdi on the sofa was strange to her and she immediatley made a charge for terrified Hamdi who like a flash ran for her life towards the door for an escape (only to discover was locked) and then Brownie made an aggressive attack on Hamdi who shouted for help, hearing this I rushed downstairs, picked up Brownie and threw her back in the kitchen (she even got a kick up her backside for leaving her basket in the first place). Anyway I went back to Hamdi and asked how she was, Hamdi had jumped on the sofa and seemed to be in a state of shock (sadmah). I fetched her a glass of water and reassured her that there was no need to fear anymore. After awhile the still very shakey Hamdi went home. Since then I have tried to approach her with calls and texts but she wont reply. Do you think she is being unreasonable?
  20. Salaam. Right you are Sis, eggs are like the equivalent of a womans monthly cycle ie unfertilised eggs. The fertilised ones make the chicks thus is the meat which the farmers dont remove so allow to be hatched into baby chicks. A healthy hen will periodically produce eggy eggs without any need of a cockeral respectively. So its not like as I used to think when I was small that eating eggs is like killing unborn chick otherwise most vegetarians wouldnt eat them. Vegans - the extreme it depends some do and some dont. Anyway on the subject of eggs.... many veg foods and ready meals have eggs in them such as cheese flan but they tend to specify for the vegans sake.
  21. Salaam Sis. I couldnt agree with you more... alot of men date and dump girls thinking they still deserve a better deal. Then eventually marry somone they are not to keen on or from abroad thinking the grass is greener on the other side - only many of them later discover their so called freshy from backhome was more craftier than he himself with more eastern promises he bargained for. Im sure many dont ever get to find out. My aunt used to say; while he is doing her she is getting done! Atleast in the west for the majority most are sincere ie this is me take it or leave it! I mean why not marry the one you dated and liked from first? Im sure the world would be happier if this was the case.
  22. Salaam Fellow Members. Like (crush, fancy etc) :shifty: ... or even lust :shaytan: ... how to tell the difference between this and true love :wub: ? I asked my friend how to tell so she asked me when I close my eyes at bedtime what do I see? I replied... noodles ~ chocolate ~ how to stay out of trouble (especially from Mum) ~ my friends pet Gerbil ~ how to avoid my sister (or pay her back) ~ more food ~ and if Im not asleep by then maybe James Bond (only a joke)! But Im usually asleep by then - normally somewhere between the noodles and the choc! Im asking about this because it has never really ever happened... you know Iv not ever actually fallen in love... but I wish to know what its like and how to tell if its true or not. You could say at 22+ it should have happened some years ago but it hasnt and Im recently beginning to wonder what its like to feel love for a man in that sort of way! My Nanan always used to say thatwith my bohemian looks I will click it early but thatwas v unlike the case as when I get such interests I tend to shy away. Anyway I asked my friend the same Q thinking she was going to reply chicken and chips but to my surprise she said when her eyes close she sees nothing but Abdi her Somalian boyfriend (wooo for some but this sort of thing puts me off).
  23. ... I told my Mum about this but she just laughed and called me a silly sausage. Nobody took me seriously atall! :(
  24. Salaam. I once went to this Burger place where it had economy burger, burger supreme and burger de-luxe on its menu! I left opted for pizza instead.
