  1. Salam alaycom, What kind of CMS does shiachat use? WS Um Ali
  2. Salam alaycom, Br. Ya Aba and FAB online have done a great job making the links to Shahr Ramadhan English lectures available, jizaahom Allah khair. However, where are the Arabic lecturers? Any links would be greatly appreciated, especially links to a good Maqtil Imam Ali (as) Peace, Um Ali
  3. Salam alaycom, Utter blasphemy. I drink tea WITH my meal. Peace, Um Ali
  4. Salam alaycom, Mashalla! Mabrook sis. I'm sure his two older sisters will spoil him rotten. Peace, Um Ali
  5. Salam alaycom, It's unfortunate that many people put too much emphasis on food. Yes, it's important to have a healthy meal and replenish your body after breaking the fast, however, many people take the month of Ramadhan as the month of feast. The table is filled with several different dishes, most either oily/fried/heavy, and after that they gorge themselves with sweets. Today I flipped out at futoor because every day, despite having two dishes, there is always one of my children that doesn't like what we are having and complains. I drank tea, got up and prayed maghrib and left the table. Later, I had some soup left over from last night. (Moms always eat the leftovers?) It's easy to be ungrateful when you aren't doing any of the work. I think tomorrow I'll have scrambled eggs, toast, and cornflakes. The day after I'll have grilled cheese and tuna salad sandwiches. Maybe by then they'll appreciate it. If not, it will be a lot easier to fix 'breakfast' than to fix a large meal. If the end result is the same - complaining - then it's easier for me to handle complaints about eggs and cereal. So many people go hungry, even at futoor, or don't have anyone to cook for them and have to eat what is available in mosques or charity houses. I doubt if these people complain. Trying to make kids/hubbies thankful is jihad!! (Alhamd my dh doesn't complain about food, he'll eat almost anything.) Take a day off from cooking sis kareema. Give what you'd spend on the meal to charity and have salad and sandwiches. I'm sure you'll feel much better! Peace, Um Ali
  6. Salam alaycom, Inna lillah wa inna ilayhi raj3oon. May Allah give her family patience to deal with the loss. Al Fatiha....... Peace, Um Ali
  7. Salam alaycom, Most islamic sites with audio have a table of the links on a different page when you click on them. Example: http://www.aimislam.com/audio.html Click on dua and ziyarat: http://www.aimislam.com/audio/dua.html It looks neater this way, jmho. Peace, Um Ali
  8. Salam alaycom, I've been sick this year at futoor too. I found out the best thing to do is have warm tea and some dates and wait about 15 min before eating, or if I'm really hungry, I have warm soup or porridge. Later, I drink plenty of juice/water, it sounds like dehydration. Caffeine withdrawal would be over by now, it usually only lasts 3-5 days. Make sure you eat suhoor - try something like cornflakes and a banana. If it keeps up, see a dr. Salamat! Peace, Um Ali
  9. Salam alaycom, I am downloading the first one of Sayed Ammar's, try again, it wasn't working earlier, but I think it's fixed now. Peace, Um Ali
  10. Salam alaycom, It depends on the individual. I fasted with three pregnancies - I was 6 months with my 3rd, then in the 9th with my last two: my 4th daughter was born after Ramadhan and my son on the 25th of Ramadhan. I had no problems, and had three healthy babies, alhamdulillah. I know others who can't fast at all in Ramadhan, and others who fast a few days here and there, skipping when they feel weak. If a doctor says you SHOULDN'T fast, then by all means don't. If you feel dizzy to the point of blacking out, weak, heart palpitations or cramping, then break the fast and see a doctor. Peace, Um Ali
  11. (salam) Hyperacidity and Heartburn Prolonged hours of not eating, as in fasting, increases secretion of acid in the stomach called hyperacidity. Excessive secretion of gastric acid may lead to ulcer, which is a sore in the lining of stomach or intestine. When this gastric acid refluxes back to esophagus, it causes Heartburn - chest pain which we sometimes confuse as a disease from the heart. Symptoms: • Burning sensation or pain in the stomach • Frequent feeling of hunger, usually after 1-2 hours after meal • Nausea and vomiting • Bitter taste in mouth • Loss of appetite • Constant pain in the upper abdomen after a large meal • Chest pain commonly seen in heartburn Causes: • Not eating on time • Eating fried and spicy food regularly • Stress, anxiety and insomnia • Obesity and pregnancy • Excessive smoking • Drinking excessive alcohol • Intake of NSAIDs - Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin given for pain relief Treatment & Prevention: • Eating the right meal: Include plenty of green and leafy vegetables and avoid fried, sour, hot and spicy food. Fruits like apple, watermelon and banana are recommended. • Take your meals regularly and on time, don’t skip them. • Drink plenty of water. • Do not haste while eating, always chew your food properly. • Maintain proper posture after meal and never go to bed or lie down immediately after a meal. • Avoid the possible causes mentioned. • Take medications such as antacid and H2 Blocker. If you have been suffering from hyperacidity and stomach upset for a long time, testing for H. pylori, bacteria found in gastrointestinal tract, will help find the right treatment. For the neckache / earache, see a dr. Peace, Um Ali
  12. Salam alaycom, Sis, I can sympathesize with you and all the other migraine sufferers. I used to have them often and really bad - however, about 2 years ago I lost some weight and started exercising, stopped drinking coffee and started drinking more water and now migraines are a rare occurence, alhamdulillah. When I do feel a really bad one coming on, I do take Excedrin Migraine, it seems to really help. Peace, Um Ali
  13. Salam alaycom, You made the right choice sis. May Allah keep you on the straight path. Peace, Um Ali
  14. Salam alaycom, Search online, you'll find some....... ;) Peace, Um Ali
  15. Salam alaycom, Try tafsir (exegesis) like Al Mizan, Pooya, Light of the Holy Quran..... Peace, Um Ali
  16. Salam alaycom, Hint for #7: Think, how are we all raised on Judgment Day..... Peace, Um Ali
  17. Salam, Nice, but can you make the blue dark green? Peace, Um Ali
  18. Salam alaycom, I think she's asking if it's acceptable to stay up all night due to work and sleep until dhuhr. Yes, it's OK, just make sure you eat suhoor before imsak and do the fajr prayers on time. You are sleeping because you stayed up to work, not because you are lazy and are trying to 'sleep the fast off'. Inshalla khair. Peace, Um Ali
  19. Salam alacyom, Please refer to Shiachat's Annual Shahr Ramadhan Contest thread, which will be open only for the contest questions and answers, and will remain locked to members. Feel free to use this thread to discuss or ask questions, however, please do not divulge any answers. May the best wo(man) win! :P (Come on sisters don't let us down!) Note: The contest will be run as day one of Shahr Ramadhan as Sunday, Sept 24th. There will be 8 questions in the two of the rounds and 7 in the other two to equal 30. Peace, Um Ali
  20. Salam, Looked like 2,000 at the most. Definitely the majority of lebs against Hezb. lol Peace, Um Ali
  21. Salam, With all due respect Ya Aba, Sayed Fadhlallah's statement is dated 26 Sha'aban........ so there was no attempt to see the sky on the 29th? Peace, Um Ali
  22. Salam alaycom, Does anyone know if it's Shahr Ramadhan for us tomorrow or not?

  23. Salam alaycom, If you like the contest like last year's - a question a day from each juz - done a week at a time, I'll arrange it, just reply here with 'interested' or count me in. Peace, Um Ali
  24. Salam, Too Deep: It is not permissible to make wudhu with nail polish on. The polish forms a layer which cannot be penetrated by water, thereful rendering the ablutions null. Peace, Um Ali
  25. Salam alaycom, I was afraid my glasses would fall off and break. I wore contacts, and had no problems. The safety goggles are good for the stoning area. Keep your lens case full of solution in your pocket and some rewetting drops incase your eyes get dry. Peace, Um Ali
