  1. ^ Agree because though it's halaal, I know of a close relative who married a first cousin and the second born is deaf and dumb. So personally, I don't favour inbred marriages.
  2. Forget being face-to-face, well, I'm nervous of namehrams even if it's through emails! I always do something so silly that things get messed up. I go all weak in my knees and hands start shaking and I start dropping things. It's embarrassing to say the least. But, I think it's okay. It's all about exposure. You don't have to unnecessarily talk to guys. When it becomes essential then I do, and make a mess of everything otherwise, I'm happy the way I am.
  3. It's obvious. Whoever said that Turkey was Islamic and neither is Saudi ... so good let them make that much money to go bankrupt in this time of recession and let Iran build it's nukes and scare the life out of both.
  4. There's a vast difference between a politician and a leader. I would recommend Islamic leadership in Iraq and by this I mean anyone who is educated in both religion as well as politics so that his morals are in place and the rest automatically falls in line. After years of turmoil, Iraq needs a strong leader now. Someone who is like an engine of a train taking people to their destination, because without an engine the train is useless. It can't move on it's own. And this one doesn't have to be a cleric. He can be anyone who is knowledgeable. And who are these secularists anyway? Someone pand
  5. I wonder why Iraq can't produce a strong leader with a stiff backbone? Why does it always have to depend on outside forces to make peace internally? Iraq is rich. Just look at Basra... a bustling port as well as pots of gold in the form of oil. If only, it can be 'utilised' to help the already impoverished people, how great that would be. But I do like the idea of Iran and Iraq becoming a strong entity. Think how wonderful it would be if we had 2 strong powers representing the shias? Imagine the jitters that will go through to America and Saudi. But sadly, the politics of the region won't let
  6. Hmmm I also notice undertones of Munajat of Imam Ali (as). This is s sincere effort. May Allah swt accept all our supplications.

    ^Is this Punjabi? (wasalam) :cry: This is one of the most heart-wrenching masaib to bear. Very good bro. You should compile them all and publish it.
  8. Yes. I've also heard about that. I don't have a problem if someone prays in a Sunni or Shia mosque as long as they pray. :) And anyway during hajj also Muslims pray together. I was just curious to know how these shia brothers pray with Sunnis. Do they also cross their hands like them in case they are praying with the sects that do or they follow our way of doing so?
  9. Yea... some people are getting paranoid about shias. I also hear that some guy was interrogated by the police for joining too many shia related forums on Facebook! Azadari was rampant in Dubai, once upon a time. It's sad that things are tightening up these days.
  10. Do you also cross your hands and pray then? :o :Hijabi:
  11. :squeez: Good you are honest so have got a wee bit chance to wear the precious ammamah on your head. How? I'm sure Dubai has banned zanjeer zani. At least, it couldn't be done last year, I hear. That's how hordes went to Karbala and Syria in Muharram. :unsure:
  12. ^ Good excuse. The ladies don't want to meet you dingdong bell. Isn't that very clear? :angry: :sick:
  13. That is the best landscape picture I've seen in this whole year sis. And I've seen quite a few! I also take my pix from my cell. It's easy and very, very handy. Mount Everest tryst ... Phewa lake, Pokhra, Nepal Mountaineers at the Everest base camp Base camp ... the farthest peak so far!!! :P
  14. I don't understand why you people are asking her to speak to a Marja? I thought she was a Sunni! It's a very difficult situation for her and I'm very sorry that such events do occur in some households. I feel she should speak with some elder in her house, preferably an uncle of hers who would understand her plight. In these cases aunties can add fuel to the fire. If this elderly gentleman can intervene on her behalf it might work out in her favour or better still she can seek the help of the local jamaat. I don't know if sunnis have one, but shias do have very helpful people in those jamaats
  15. :rolleyes: Oh no! Not again... future Ayatollah dingdong and his fatwas! lol. Have any of these meetings worked? Lol. Doesn't seem though. Anyway, I'm not sure how advisable any of these online meets would be. If someone is taking the initiative, it's better to PM the time and place because this is a public forum and you never know who can fake and land up there. It's always better to be on your guard. It's the virtual world after all... Just a word of caution ...
  16. Dingdong, there must be a reason behind her every action. Sleep on it for sometime, when the day's bright and sunny you can drop in your request. Anyway, there's not much that you can do. If she doesn't understand yours instead, why not try understanding her point of view for once?
  17. Talking about the attributes of Imam Ali (as) there is not another who is equal to him in any which way. The importance of knowing Imam Ali (as) is based on the following hadith which claims that Imam Ali (as) is the divider of heaven and hell ... The Prophet, (saws), told Imam Ali (as): "O Ali, you are from me and I from you. Your friend is my friend and my friend is Allah's friend. And your enemy is my enemy and my enemy is the enemy of Allah. O Ali, I am at war with the one who fights you and at peace with one who is at peace with you. O Ali, you have a treasure in the Heaven and you are th
  18. So explain to her your reasons for fasting and then find out what she actually thinks and do that only. If you hide and fast that may lead you to telling lies or something similar which itself is a sin. So, what's the point of that fast? Listen to her so that you please her and double your sawab.
  19. A newly published report by Christian Peacemaker Teams and Operation Dove about the Israeli military escort of Palestinian children to school in At-Tuwani, during the 2007-2008 school year, details a catalogue of violent settler attacks on the children and a complacent attitude by the Israeli army. The military escort began in the fall of 2004, following attacks by settlers on the schoolchildren and internationals accompanying them on the public road that passes between Ma’on settlement and Hill 833 (Havot Ma’on) settler outpost. The Israeli Knesset Committee for Children’s Rights affirmed the
  20. What's the problem if you call yourself the slave of Ahlul Bait (as)? The literal meaning is to be entirely under the domination or influence of someone. So isn't it better to be a slave of the Ahlul Bait (as) rather than worldly people? Anyway, your poem is brilliant bro and indeed it is the grand Lady of Paradise who will distribute heaven among her followers and slaves.
  21. Good juxtaposition of quotes to enforce the idea in each para. I like it.
  22. Congratulations sis! Since he is the one, I pray that you have a perfectly blissful life. Good luck! I totally agree! It's the easiest way to track someone, if you know definitely more than a name that is.... Lol. Thankfully, only my junk pops up when I'm googled!
  23. Well, our aunties & co belong to different schools of thought. :squeez: I like the thought that I made my mom look beautiful. :P Inshallah. You will get exactly what you want with the blessings of the Holy Ones (as) and it doesn't matter what the gender of your baby is, I'm sure it is making you glow and look pretty charming as it is. :)
  24. Perhaps, if the Imam wills it for you. I know of someone who was brain dead and today he's hale and hearty just because of his mother's faith in Bibi Zainab (sw). Yes, in a way this is raising someone from being dead. I remember reading it in "The miracles of Mashhad" how Imam Reza (as) has helped so many people including actually producing bread from their pockets through his will and there are other stories, too. The Imams (as) definitely had powers that were bestowed upon them through Divine Providence. Bibi Zahra (sa) raised the dead bride who got up accepting Islam. The breathing man la
  25. Please keep them. Be happy with what Allah swt has bestowed you with. At least you have ears and can use them. Think about those who are deaf? What sort of surgery can they do?
