  1. Felines of all sort are my speciality. I think this lion does seem to be roaring Allah (saw) during the first part of the vid however towards the end, given his posture, the sounds he was making, it sounded/looked like the lion was about to vomit however he didn't. Interesting vid regardless of it's age.

  2. i don't think its quite that simple, many people do bad things, but (seemingly) lead a great life, they have it all, whilst others lead a good life, but nothing goes right for them.

    Sure, good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people but generally speaking, if you do bad things, you will recieve bad things, you reap what you sow.

    i think it's more important to have an eye on the next life, which is what keeps the good people, that lead tough lives going (in many instances)

    Exactly.

  3. I can't thank you enough for all of your comments, it means a lot and it's good to know, even if seas apart, people, somewhere, still care about Ole' Frosty.

    I will respond to your posts more properly later, I just wanted to thank you all so very much, from the bottom of my heart, I sincerely mean this.

    @Hameedah:

    Nothing get's by you aye sis? I am indeed optimistic about the future, thanks to this forum, my Imam and Allah (saw). :)

  4. Can anyone link me to an article or essay or book written by an Imam or from an Islamic scholar on the topic of 'anger' and 'revenge' and 'vegeance' and the like?

    Frosty, first of all, condolences for the loss of your loved ones. I hope you haven't used your sadness about them as an excuse for your sinful behavior.

    You allowed Shaytan to enter your life. Now you are sorry, so cry and beg forgiveness from Allah SWT. One sincere tear would be enough, but the more tears the better.

    To be perfectly honest, I have cried every single day for almost a year now, there is no shortage of tears of sorrow here, just the guilt alone of sinning against Allah (saw) is almost unbearable on top of everything else. You are completely right though, I let Shaytan in my life, I let him twist me and pervert my character and turn me into a monster that I am not.

    Less than two weeks ago I was checking your profile to see when was the last time you came to ShiaChat. I have seen you at ShiaChat for more than a year and I care about you.

    So I am going to tell you something that I would not tell other people because I don't really know them. Do you have a Holy Qur'an? Open it to Surah 4, and read aya 48.

    It says Allah SWT forgives any sin except for committing shirk. Now don't jump up and down and say yippee. You are in serious trouble.

    If you have committed shirk, I don't know what to tell you. I am praying for you to stop the substance abuse, including alcohol. Get yourself to a medical doctor and have blood tests.

    I attribute my downfall largely to me seperating myself from my community due to shame and embarassment. I however never lost faith, I never rejected God, I never cursed his name or worshiped any Gods aside from Him, I never cursed or rejected the message of his Prophet (pbuh) or Islam in general. I just strayed far from the straight path. I own multiple translations of al-Qur'an including copies which are solely in Arabic and I have been reading it everyday, it's really been the only thing keeping me going.

    Follow his/her prescription medication religiously, on a daily basis. Please!

    I have been recently, I have been going to NA meetings, talking with my sponser, and my therapist and have been taking my medication regularly.

    Read that ^ again and let it sink in. I am serious and you should be serious, too. Praying for you and all our people who are ill. I pray your news is good next time! ws

    Trust me, I am VERY serious, that's why I came here, I need my community, I need to go to my masjid, talk to my Imam, talk to my fellow brothers and sisters in Islam.

  5. i think when people read about your cat, they assumed you're just trying to be funny. i certainly wasn't sure if this was a joke at first either to be honest.

    I was extremely close to my cat, I had her 15 years and towards the end of this whole ordeal, she was the only thing I had left, almost literally, that's why I included her death in my OP. I realize given my personality and posting history why people would think that I'm joking but no, this isn't a joke, this all really happened, I'm not trying to be cute or funny or make fun of anyone who uses this forum to seek advice. This is just me, Frosty, turning to my old friends in ShiaChat in desperate need of advice and guidance.

    The verse that I have been clinging to is:

    "...My Lord! Surely I stand in need of whatever good Thou mayest send to me."-Al-Qur'an, Al-Qasas, 28:24.

    I feel like prophet Ayyub (as). Literally, the friends I have left have tried to talk to me and have asked me "all of this has happened to you, you don't even have a home, how can you still keep faith? Why do you still keep praying to your God? Why do you pray so many times and at such odd hours when you're situation keeps going from bad to worse?"

  6. I agree with others, it looks silly and it will give off the wrong impression. There is alot cooler trends to follow style wise than making slits in the eyebrows mate. I know in American culture (idk about UK, I think this eyebrow thing is an English/American thing) it usually gives of the impression of criminality and so on and primarily those who have it are either a criminal or they are an entertainer or pop star.

    Im not sure if its haram but i think i can use it. My eyebros are too hairy and continue from one eye to the second eye. I think it would make me look better and more stylish.

    I don't think the OP is talking about shaving down the middle bro, just making a small line in the eye brow, usually near the end of the eyebrow opposite of the side the nose is closest too.

    Here is an example for those not familiar with the trend:

  7. It does sounds like you have some anger issues and you need to learn how to cope with that. Remember that acting on your anger will always produce something toxic.

    Indeed, sadly I have let my illness and my emotions get the best of me.  I know now that I have let Satan tempt me, change me and twist me.

    Seriously bro, you are probably going to have to say good-bye to your one time fiancée. If she were my sister I would tell her to dump you quick. I am not trying to be mean, just giving you additional perspective.

    Despite what she may say, despite her kind words, despite her reassurance that everything will be ok, I know in my heart, no, it will not and we will never be again, I know this, I accept this and I can see it in her eyes when we talk despite what she may be saying. I don't expect her to take me back, I don't expect her to forgive me, I don't expect her family to forgive me. I in short expect nothing. I know, full well, there is nothing that I can say to repay them/her for the emotional/physical toll that I have taken. All I am trying to do now, is to tell her that I am sorry and all I am asking for is her forgiveness. If I was her brother, I wouldn't want her to date me either and would want to kill me too. All I have been asking from her is forgiveness, I know I have killed what may have been and I know I will have to bear this guilt and this burden.

    Good luck brother and may you choose the path of Allah.  

    Allah (saw) is the only thing I got, I most assuredly will take shelter under him and follow his path which I have so stupidly strayed away from. The worst part of this has been dealing with the guilt I feel for sinning against Allah (saw) along with those I have hurt and everything else.

    Is this a joke? Are you making fun of people who seek advice on this website?

    No, this is not a joke, not at all. I realize given my personality and posts on this site why you would think that, I don't blame you, I would think the same but no, this isn't a joke, all of this has really happened to me and I am sincerely asking advice from this forum. This isn't a joke, this isn't satire, this is just me, sincerely and earnestly seeking advice.

  8. Brother I'm not sure if this internet is the best place to go for this kind of thing.

    I realize this, ShiaChat is not the only outlet I am using to help me with this troubling time. I am just looking for advice and some kind words and so on.

    In any case, you obviously know what the problem is (i.e. deviation). So shouldn't you know the solution?

    Very right, the problem isn't so much knowing the solution, more to have the courage and strength to get up, put my ego and shame to the side and carry out said solution.

    (salam)

    I know it has been awhile since I have posted and I hate to begin posting again on such a bad note but my brothers and sisters, I need your help now more than I have ever need anyones help in my life. I have strayed far from the path of Islam, of Allah (saw), I have commited many grievous sins. I have stolen, I have drank alcohol and intoxicants, I have had sex before marriage, I have beat my fiance, I have sined and disgraced myself in my family, my circle of friends, my community. I have lost everything I once held dear, my job, my fiance, my family has disowned me, my friends have rejected me, my cat recently fell ill and passed on, my beloved grandmother has passed on and a week later my dear grandfather also passed and I don't know where to turn other to where I should have turned to in the first place. I have not talked to any Imam yet because I have been to ashamed of my behaviour and actions to even show my face in a holy house of Allah (saw). All, I want to do right now is purify myself in the sight of Allah (saw), I want to fully and truly repent of everything I have done and I need advice on how to do this properly, any advice would be helpful, this post is really just stream-of-consciousness writing and my apologies if this doesn't make sense. Please, for the love of Allah (saw) help me my brothers and sisters, thank you.

  10. I'm just asking, I would rather ask and know then not know and I would genuinely like to know for personal reasons. Also, the article posted isn't anti-polygamy. Infact, I never posted anything that would imply this either. I asked for the fatwas concerning polygamy and the practice thereof in modern times.
