  1. (salam) Thank you both so very much! Jazaakum Allah khairan! :)
  2. (salam) I hope you are all well. I am attempting to help my son with his arabic homework. He has an arabic test coming up. There are two words I'm stumped on (as well as my husband); and i would appreciate any of your advanced arabic expertise :) . We'd like to know the english translation for the following two words: 1.) تزور (taa zayne wow raa) 2.) hiyaa, but not spelled like the she/hiya. This one is: هيا Thank you in advance. It's kind of urgent. wasalaam

  5. (salam) I actually knew of some muslims who intentionally did not respond to everyone's random salam. They made the case that their scholars say it is not obligatory to return the salam of someone unless they know the other person is muslim. According to them, it is haram to wish salams on a non-muslim, even in response. I once heard an arabiyya sister say, in a small sisters group, that she did not consider non-arabs to be real muslims, and that she did not say salam to them or return their salaams. She was floored when I pulled her to the side later that evening and let her know she was say
  6. (salam) I know of these two: IJA Miami (in Hialeah Gardens, Miami - Northwest Miami-Dade County bordering southwest Broward County) Assadiq Center (Palm Beach County - the next county north of Broward County, and about 40-60 minute drive north on I95. This one was started by one of the Qazwini offspring). I don't know if this one is still functioning .... it might be .... you can call to see. If you call either one of these, they may be able to tell you of more shia centers in south florida, inshaAllah. Hope this helps; wasalaam
  7. I'm surprised not to see things on that list like chronic cellphone use; burning fossil fuels and living next to plants/stations that do; breathing in car exhaust (and contributing by not tuning one's car regularly giving off plumes of smoke from your car's tailpipe); excessive and prolonged amphetamine/pseudoephedrine usage (check your friendly over-the-counter nasal decongestant or your prescription psychotropic if you dare); and drinking large amounts of water that is inevitably tainted with nuclear - and other brain damaging - waste.
  8. (salam) I found this attempt for "biracial" dolls (if it's at all helpful): Real Kidz . I also know of these already: Muslimah Dolls . Here are some links to instructions for making ones own dolls too. My grandmother made some of my dolls with me when I was little. Her dolls weren't as high tech as some of the doll crafts on these sites, but they at least dressed decently - and had skin tones like mine, for the most part. http://familycrafts.about.com/od/dollcrafts/ http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_dolls/ Hope this is helpful; wasalaam
  9. (salam) While taking my son's art and classwork from his cubby during school dismissal, I found - hidden among the newsletters and announcements - issue 13 of this magazine: Halal Consumer (<- that's a clickable link). Along with cool articles about nutrition, it has a really extensive halal directory in the back. On the particular magazine I have (a later issue than the one linked above), it states that an annual subscription is US$15.00, and a single copy is US$5.00. I just thought it was cool; and thought maybe someone here may find it useful too, inshaAllah. The main homepage is: http
  10. (salam) I also live here in "The West". When I (and my son and husband) have gently worn clothes, we: 1) Donate to local women's shelter (they appreciate the women's clothing and children's clothing - and they give directly to the residents without any resale) 2) Hijab and jilbab-like items - and many of my son's fancy clothing - I donate to the local masjid/islamic center. Recently, we donated really nice items to my son's Islamic school, and they sold them in a garage sale using the proceeds for the school. 3) Donate to local teen runaway center (some of the young-adult teens 16-22 years of
  11. (salam) I truly hope you have found some peace and encouragement in the suggestions in these posts and our rooting for your pursuit of peace and happiness in all of the replies here. You are in my prayers, dear sister. Please keep us in your prayers. wasalaam
  12. Salaamu alaykum wa rahmatuAllah wa barakatuhu When you say you feel suicidal, do you mean you have thoughts, intentions, and plans to actually take your life; or is this a colloquial expression? Should we be concerned for your safety, dear sister? If this is not just an expression, and you have specific thoughts, intentions, and plans to hurt yourself in any way, please stop reading now and call your doctor, or student health clinic now, or your RA (resident assistant) if you live in a dormitory for some immediate help and assistance. Is the issue just about the head covering, or is the issue
  13. (salam) Though not regularly, my husband and I do watch anime together from time to time. We particularly enjoyed Eureka 7 (one of my favorites) ; Samurai X; Samurai Champloo; and - briefly - Read or Die (although this one was, at times, a little too questionable in an inappropriate type of way). With our son, we've enjoyed anime movies: My Neighbor Totoro (my favorite); Spirited Away (my husband's and son's favorite); Howl's Moving Castle; KiKi's Delivery Service; Nausicaa of The Valley of Wind (another one of my favorites); and Princess Mononoke.
  14. Yes. My experiences have been/are similar and even worse, though, with one incident that could have taken my life (group of youngins in a pick-up truck that tried to run my car off the road on 9/11/01) and another incident where I was about to physically protect myself and my then-pregnant belly (my fists were drawn and ready and everything) ..... all over misconceptions fueled by a scarf on my head. Just this morning I had to stare down a group of dudes at the gas station staring at me in my scarf. I looked them right in the eyes and firmly said "Good morning". They replied, began to whistle
  15. (salam) These are just a few things I’ve picked up that make sense to me ….. and some of which, I believe, have helped in a marriage I'm thinking of right now … 1) Marry rationally and after lots of prayer …… try to know your suitor/suitoress – as best as you are able to do so halal-ly –– and pray continuously (with sound Islamic advice from the knowledgeable ones) trusting in Allah (swt) and the logic/sense Allah (swt) has blessed you with – and the upright of your family/community/ulema – in making the most appropriate choice BEFORE nikkah. If you can help it - try not to ruin family ties
