  1. I was reading this topic and it raises more questions than answers. So we seem to have established that Taghut "...is anything that takes you away from the remembrance of Allah" as thecontentedself user pointed out above,but this is a very general and subjective concept for me. In terms of referring Taghut to systems of governance, as I have seen oft-mentioned in the above posts, one can argue that government systems in both the East and West share this trait. Totalitarianism and dictatorship is not Islamic, nor is the open promotion of vice. And we can also say both Eastern & Western government systems have good aspects to them and can learn from each other for the better; no-one's perfect. So what is the solution? We go sit in a cave and hum Kumbaya until the Mahdi re-appears? Taghut, to me, seems to be a very loose term and can apply to anything, from your bills and bank acount to entire systems of governance. Can someone elucidate on this further for me? I would appreciate the added input.

    Can you provide a reference to a scientific/ medical report that states this? This is the first time in my life I'm hearing this, I frequently use mascara and Hamdulilah never had problems. As for kohl, I don't use it any more...if a product can't give me the complete ist of ingredients in it's packaging I don't put it on my skin, far less in THE WATERLINE OF MY EYE...most kohl products contain LEAD.

  3. Hmm well this is an interesting topic. I too have also been wandering what's the status of cosmetic surgeries in Islam because often I see women who have done quite a lot of cosmetic surgeries to themselves and then there's the fact that most (if not 99%) of public personas (actresses/ actors, singers, politicians, tv personnel ) have done some kind of cosmetic surgery to alter/ 'enhance' their natural features. I have contemplated rhinoplasty in the past but I'm not seriously considering it anymore. I knew someone who had to undergo a nose surgery for the bone in their nose and the doctor did a little 'cosmetic enhancing' of their nose as well so that the nose would be properly healed, etc. The healing period for this individual was hell, their face was swollen, and black and blue, they had problems breathing, they felt like they were choking and couldn't swallow food properly, and endured agonizing pain among other things. Why would I want to pt myself through that and I have nothing medically wrong with my nose? Often we see the glamorous after pictures but we never know what people go through during and after these cosmetic surgeries. A usual 'surgery' by itself is very painful and is dangerous and risky. I have come to the conclusion that what Allah swt gave us, we should embrace because what I have personally observed is that every single feature in our face fits perfectly together. The size of our nose is reflective of the dimensions of our brows...the size of our lips, is reflective of the angle of our cheekbones...when someone does a cosmetic procedure on one part of their face, all of a sudden, this feature stands out in a very distracting and disharmonious way ( like nails on a chalkboard ) and they have to go back and do the other parts of their face, till they changed everything and expended A LOT of money. What a WASTE even if you're rich. Not only that, most of the times, after a rhinoplasty or other cosmetic procedure, the 'enhanced' feature just doesn't come out the way the client wanted it or it looks totally unnatural and unsuitable for their face, or it needs to be adjusted a bit etc. and it requires not just one procedure but multiple. Often, I can spot a woman/ man who has had plastic surgery because the composition of the various facial structures are 'jarring'...something's wrong and a certain feature doesn't harmonize well with another. Anyway, I would like to find out about the various rulings of the scholars regarding this issue so I can have a point of reference and gain some perspective. If anyone can provide references I'd greatly appreciate it.
  4. Wow...I feel sorry for the talk show host who's in the middle, he must have gotten drenched in spit... :) Well I'm not Lebanese nor have I been there so I can't comment on the state of your country economically,politically, etc. etc. but I enjoyed reading this thread becuz everyone had an important point. However, I will say that everywhere you go there is good and bad and it's human nature and Murphy's Law to screw things up. Human nature is easily corruptible but at the same time no one is entirely good and no one is entirely bad, and I think every country,ethnic group, tribe, etc etc has its merits and downfalls. But if you are from a country, and you were born there, it will forever be in your blood and you can never forget it, and it will always be a part of you. So be accepting of its good and bad and be proud of coming from that country despite reprehensible side of its culture. Take for example my country...at least the world has heard of Lebanon, its political struggles and have some level of knowledge and assessment for it and its ancient history. When I tell foreigners where I'm from, they've first of all never heard of it. When I explain to them where exactly it is, they think my life involves sitting on a beach whole day while reggae music plays in the background, and I eat mangoes or coconuts while people swing from trees and run around in grass skirts. My country is rife with political issues and corruption but you know what? I'm still proud of my country and where I'm from. So your situation could be much worse Laayla.

  7. As they sit eating that huge pot of food, they will be playing with the fungus growing in between their feet, and the scabs on their foot, then eating with that same hand. Can you imagine how that place must be smelling. Yuck.
  8. Congrats to you & your family on our master's birthday, may GOD hasten his re-appearance... You're a good friend... ;-p

  11. You should never have removed Sayyed Musa, I love that pic of him, brings back memories, you had that pic of him quite a while too....

  12. Comments are not working on your wall...

  13. What you don't like pervert-looking bat-boy ? You think I should go back to the "Orion's belt" one ?

  14. One of these days IA I will be seeing that shimmering gilded dome glistening in the rosy evening light above me, as I stand below it; with the wind snapping its flag high above the heads of the other Seekers and Lovers....and the fragrance of roses, amber and musk will be calling me, from within the blessed rauza, in which lies the body of a prince whose life was as beautiful yet short-lived as that of the rose...his body, which is purer than the milk and honey from the rivers of Jannah lies encapsulated there like a well-guarded jewel; a luminescent jewel on the shining crown of the blessed Ahlul-Bayt. Bein there, and feeling his presence, which is animated through the Majesty, Mercy and Beneficence of Allah Al-Quddus swt, will be so powerful, IA I will see my Imam, and when I do, I will know that it isn't the first time I'm going there, because my heart and mind has visited him in Mashhad many times before. Assalamu alayka ya Imam Ali ibn Musa Reza, Ghareeb Al Tus, Allahuma salli ala Muhammad wa ahle Muhammad :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:
