  1. Salam Alaykum, I've been receiving a lot of questions after posting this hadith on my blog, saying it is fabricated: “Rajab is God’s month, Sha’ban is my month, and Ramadan is the month of my community.” — Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) Anyone know of the source? I saw somewhere on Duas.org that is was from Bukhari V5 pg 21 and 29. Any info would be most appreciated. Thank you. Ws
  2. salam,

    I see you'r from south _ Lebanon to.

    Where in the south do you live or are you bron.

  3. That's very true. They used to take the baby right away after the delivery. But now, research shows that those first few moments are critical for the baby to become familiar with the mother's scent and voice. It's a very important part of development. That's why sometimes babies cry when someone else holds them, but stop when their mothers do; they really do know. Subhan'Allah.
  4. Sign the Petition!! Let's keep him and his family in our prayers and duas. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/FreeMousavi/index.html
  5. California's ablaze, and it has become worse now. And, the windy weather is not helping. Once a fire ignites, the embers can fly over 2 miles making surrounding areas highly at risk. There are over a dozen fires going on now from the Santa Clarita Valley to San Deigo, including Irivne, Orange County, Malibu, Ontario, and now Lake Arrowhead. I'm away at university, so I've been trying to stay in touch with my family. Back home, they've now issued a mandatory evacuation, and most of the roads are closed also. Schools are too, no not for snow days like everyone else... we have fire days! Insh'Allah it ends soon with few homes destroyed. The plumes of smoke, however, are going to linger for weeks, causing lots of health problems.
  6. I'm planning on going, inshallah. I just hope it doesn't rain!
  7. I found these to be pretty helpful. I recommend reading in English with the Arabic audio playing at the same time; that way you can understand and learn the Arabic meanings. http://www.quranexplorer.com/quran/ http://www.mounthira.com/
  8. I think it's a scary thought, because when I think of heaven, I think of hell too. They go together, it's either one or the other and how they'll be is beyond our imaginations. Imam Sadiq (as) has said quoting his father, "My father has said: Imam Hassan (as) was the most pious, the most devoted and the most learned man of his time... Whenever he remembered death, he would start crying. When he remembered resurrection, he would start weeping. Whenever he remembered Salaat, he would bitterly weep and when he remembered offering his deeds to God, he would weep loudly and keep silent. When he stood for praying before God, he two sides started tembling and whenever he remembered Paradise and Hell, he would become excited as a man bitten by snake. He wished for paradise and sought refuge with Him from Hell."
  9. I used to be obsessive about reading all the ingredients in everything we bought. My brother would beg me not to read them, because the majority of his favorite foods, I'd told him he couldn't eat anymore. Here in the west, especially, almost everything has gelatin! Cereals, yogurt, most snacks... Some gelatin is derived from animal products and others from vegetables. ^So, I agree. I think the best thing to do is to check with your marja and just use common sense. Do your own research.
  10. She obviously felt awkward because you didn't give her any explanation! But honestly, I don't think it's that big a deal, to where she won't hire you for the job. And if it is, then she has issues. After you do the hand-to-heart manouver, just smile and say, "Sorry, I don't shake hands. It's a Muslim thing! In Islam, it's all about modesty." This way, you aknowledge that you're Muslim and why in Islam shaking hands is haram. The most important thing IMO is to say it comfortably and proud, like you've said it a million times before. It's similar to someone asking you why you wear hijab; if you answer embarrased and unsure or don't give a reply, people who don't know about hijab, are going to have a negative view about the hijab, about you, and Islam. So, a smile and a nice quick explanation are key.
  11. (salam) You haven't heard back yet? It's the worst not to know what's going on; very nerve-wracking, huh? I tend to freak out when these sort of unexpected accidents happen. Try to stay calm and patient and read Duas for her and Insh'Allah everything will turn out okay. Whatever happens, you need to stay strong! For her, for your family, for you... I will keep her in my prayers.
  12. (salam) The best thing you can do to prevent scars would be to keep the burn area covered. Stay away from the sun and once it starts to heal, put on sunscreen over the area. To prevent the area from stinging, soak it in cold water and continue to apply some type of burn cream or ointment, Neosporin works well. Inshallah it's only a minor burn and will heal quickly!
  13. (salam) If your acne is so severe, you're gonna need some acne fighters; :shaytan: some potent doses of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Try buying some cleansers and creams that have those ingredients and make sure you continuously use them on a daily basis. Don't worry too much, stress will only exacerbate the problem. If you don't see any improvements you should see a dermatologist, maybe they'll prescribe an antibiotic.
  14. (salam) I think if people react differently towards you on the basis of your name, that's their own problem. Why should we compromise? It bothers me when I see Mohammad become Mo or Ali become Al. I personally don't see how that helps. The girl in the hijab named Ashley is not going to be treated better than another girl in hijab named Fatima. They're both Muslims! And in regards to a practicing Muslim in particular, there are many other ways that give away your Muslim identity. What I mean is, if some people are prejudice and are going to pick on Islam, they will, regardless of your name.
