  1. Salaam I think the only way to get out of this problem is to use toilet paper in abundance both before use and before tahaarat. This will also increase the cleanliness of the toilet as well as minimizing the contact of hand with najasat, if used purposefully.
  2. Salaam If we were to take our principles from our prophet then shouldn't we also consider their implications and effects applicable in his time? From what I have read so far muta can be justified in a way but it can also be rejected if one wishes to. In the early Islamic periods they didn't have means of contraception such as condom coil pills etc, so it was inevitable to have babies (as it is with poor families in the third world countries in our time) which meant there would be children out of it left with or without mothers/fathers. Isn't it bad to deprive children of their parents? People
  3. Salaam, I think (good) habit is what solves these problems. It depends on the situation of the wife as well. Hadiths are good but I don't think you would ever get a yes or no answer.
  4. Do your hands need to be dry before doing wudu? Sometimes it takes more than twice to wash them.
  5. Salam brother. sorry 4 late reply but my cousins are fine alhamdulillah. i hope you doing well.

  6. (salam) This is how it should be but obviously it is not. Of course people have different colours different looks however it is exactly these differences that has created so much problems in the world. Race is not just important it is also unavoidable. But this does not mean to give superiority of one race over another. Here is a quote from wikipedia on white people. No one has problem with "white people" but it is the "white" bit that has created so much fitna. Of course this has nothing do with the white people in today's world and I don't see why anyone would get offended from this sort
  7. Salaam, sister. I guess sometimes it takes more than two eyes to see things ;). BTW, I am really inspired by your career. may Allah bless you with success and harmony, always.

  8. Salam, Now you got it. but it was 3 out of 24 instead of 28. The bread loaves one is simple but genius!
  9. This is why the imperialistic glamourization of race needs to get amended to something more deserving. It will also help avoid unnecessary audience here on SC, who end up defending a corner they do not sit in.
  10. Yes i am aware of your advantages. the reason I said dont judge me was because you sounded quite critical in your first post where my original intentions wasn't to cause any bad feelings. anyway I said that to clear my intentions, not to have a contest with you. Exactly. he said it to make "an ice breaker", which you found amusing. whereas with my lecturer's talk there was no humour. I find the acceptance of this behaviour of generalized racial proflling as confusing, as Muslims (rightfully) scream with protest about the exact same stereotyping and treatment.? And I still respect you. Sorr
  11. Bro, I think you missed my whole post. I wasn't saying that classification of people by skin colour is wrong, anyone can describe themselves however they want, but what I wanted to say is that these "classifications" need to be precise so that when we talk, say, about british(englis) it is not directed at other nations like america. Anyway, I don't know about you. but in asia people refer to each other by race and tribe etc, but never by their skin colour even if they look the same or not. Even the concept of the "brown" is a western label. you would not see anyone in asian countries calling
  12. It is because the shares do not make 100% - they go over it. That is why a new ratio have to be made.
  13. Sister maryaam, why do you have to get the wrong side of the stick. It doesn’t make a slightest difference to me whether you call yourself white pink yellow ginger blonde whatever, you are free to say anything! Exactly. but there is only two nations that put emphasis on skin colour rather than race or nationality. Don’t be too quick to judge me again because I have two of my own cousins who are blonde with blue eyes. and one of them who is quite young nearly got kidnapped by US soldiers in my country Afghanistan :) they all have same/similar background but since some live in hotter places
  14. Salaam, Men who sleep with different women(out of marriage) clearly deserve this title "wimp" and the same goes for women. Zealousy is one of the main forces that keep individuals real to their genders as opposed to being "wimp". Also I have know people who were addicted to gambling drinking etc and their sons ending up doing the same evil things, not because they were encouraged by their fathers but because their fathers couldn't stop them as they were themselves doing them. Nowadays, the western media portrays this "modern" idea that a "modern"man and woman should have X/Y number of sexual p
  15. Salaam, Please do not take this as a racist comment because it is not, but I would like to say few things. In today's world the only people who call themselves "white" (rather than ethnicity nationality etc) are in fact the anglosaxons who also name africans as "black", and the rest by their continents. I don't want to get into this but you all know how these classifications came about in history. I live england and I see english people calling themselves "white" while referring to other european people by their nationality. Couple of years ago we had this english lecturer who came to introdu
  16. It is not fair to pass judgement on people without learning their backgrounds. In many islamic countries where shias and sunnis live side by side their mazhab/sect is usually seen as more like their identity/ethnicity, and that is usually how they refer to each other by.and if you speak against their sects it is like you undermine their identities/tribes/ethnicities etc. This is good in some way but extremely damaging in other ways. And unfortunately many people have carried this cultural tradition with themselves, even to western countries. Ordinary people in those countries pray daily, do t
  17. I think the concept of "be and it is" applies to creation - thus, exclusively for Allah. And miracles are surely different to creations. Prophet Jesus might have cured people but that is something that a doctor can/might do as well - of course, with the difference that prophets do so miraculously through God-given power whereas doctors do it through studying the law of nature and through long procedure/s, which in both cases it is the will of Allah that concludes it at the end. No prophet/s or Imam ever created a new being and this is where one must differentiate between what God does and what
  18. W/Salaam, brother or sister, Welcome to SC. Don't worry about what you knew, or didn't, about Islam. "Shia" and "sunni" ARE just two names from one perspective but they also convey a message that can not be explained very easily. Do your research and inshallah you will find the peace and beauty of Islam. There were already some links given above by some members. And I'm sure you will find more sources in helping you to make your decision. "The seeker is the finder".
  19. What about tuna sandwiches?! They taste much better than the vegie patties - and I hope they are not haram. I also agree that finding halal meat is difficult but luckily some of the major supermarkets do sell fresh certified halal meat. Also while some takeaway shops might sell haram food they are not bothered about food hygiene either. It has really put me off from eating take out now after a visit inside a takeaway shop. But of course not all are like that.
  20. I don't think there is such thing as "one true love" between males and females. The only one true love is for the divine love which its ocean has no shore. Although there might be no one true love among people but there is always one that stands higher and affects you in all times. This is not because of the way you feel about the person but because of the footprints that they leave on your heart(which will be stuck to you for as long as your memory functions). In other words, what you directly get in return - may it be happy or sad.
  21. There isn't a mosque where I live so I pray at home and love praying in quiet and isolation. It gives me that spirituality that I need to cope with the overwhilmingly worldly desires, though it is not always possible.
  22. And a good faultless answer! :)
  23. Nice to see variety of answers. I think spending time with the children when they are young is vital to any child. LOL. you are right and they can go for that option if they wish to so from now on it IS included. And to be honest, that too is an option in this day and age. :!!!:
  24. Where in Quran does it say what kind of marriage a woman can pursue? Can someone show me the verse please?
