  1. Condé Nest Traveller Magazine, the world’s number 1 travel magazine declares #Pakistan as the world’s number 1 travel destination. YES world’s NUMBER 1 Pakistan beats 193 other destinations to become number 1 travel destination. So are you all booking a seat on the next flight??
  2. If the question is simply if it's halal or haram then developing feelings for a non mehram maybe a less than desirable thing under certain circumstances but it's not haram. Acting on those feelings can be halal or haram.
  3. Yes, this could definitely be a reason but then it only supports the argument that if your first cousin has excellent akhlaq and faith then risk of genetic complications is not a valid reason to refuse the proposal.
  4. I don't think it's conclusive. Just because it's not in vogue anymore in the west is the reason we see all that research. It's very naive think the research that happens is totally unbiased I am not advocating cousin marriage, just saying it's not the perilous, bio weapon the west preaches.
  5. Oh really? The opening post says its about Muslim sisters causing grief to the brothers. Why sad? Why not annoyed?
  6. “Oh Allah! I ask You as a (person who is) submissive,humble & obedient, to treat me kindly, to have mercy on me & to make me satisfied,content & humble in all circumstances. Oh Allah! I ask You as a person whose poverty is intense,who presents his need only to You!” - Dua e Kumayl

  7. Forgot to mention earlier Ruqayah binte Ali and Muslim bin Aqeel also first cousins. If you think about it Karbala was all sons and daughters of Abu Talib(عليه السلام) so going by this how can we say cousin marriages result in genetically less gifted children?
  8. Imam Ali's parents were first cousins, paternal cousins, though I am not 100%sure of this will have to look it up. Imam Baqir - one grandfather was Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) the other Imam Hassan(عليه السلام), that's close enough. Lady Zainab and Abdullah bin Jaafar were first cousins.You think Imam Ali (عليه السلام) the door of the city of knowledge,knowledge of the heavens and Earth wouldn't know about laws of genetics? And he would still marry off his beloved daughter to her first cousin? And if we look in the children of Imams (عليه السلام) especially the first six I am sure we will find plenty more first cousin marriages.
  9. Maybe the current scientists know more genetics than Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام)? 1. Fatima bint Asad and Abu Talib -cousins 2. Ali and Fatima (عليه السلام) - cousins 3. Zainab binte and Abdullah bin Jafar- cousins 4.Imam Muhammad Baqir's parents - cousins 5. Lubaba binte Ubaydullah and Abbas bin Ali - cousins
  10. If you go over the individual factors country by country the thing which men fall behind on healthy life span and basic education. This topples the score in women's favour. The third factor 'life satisfaction' 1.isn't much difference between either gender apart in most countries 2. And in the few countries that it's different the results don't seem reliable. More example one country is KSA where men report to have a significantly decreased life satisfaction than women??? KSA? Seriously?All that Oil money and alcohol and harem full of women isn't enough to take care of their well being and give a satisfaction from life?
  11. Completely destroyed?Maybe. Isn't it too early to say this?

  13. You see now why I wasn't happy about another slave thread? Why is everyone so focused on the topic of 'nonconsensual sex with slave girls?' People want to know how Islam treated slave girls? Go read about the life of Hazrat Fizzah (عليه السلام).
  14. You think cat poop coffee is pleasant tasting?
  15. No, no, please go ahead. All of us on ShiaChat and our slaves will definitely benefit from the discussion.
  16. Qadha of namaz is namaz itself, nothing else. You cannot offer namaz or its Qadha on behalf of a person who is alive. What you can do is pray to Allah to guide your father.
  17. Make friends with yeminis I have a dear friend from Yemen and once she brought me a green aqeeq from there. Buy Durre Najaf, It's the best stone to buy in my opinion, cheap, natural and real(as far as I know no one makes them fake, unlike almost every other gemstone)
  18. @Shia farm girl beautiful MashaAllah. The stone is very clear. I know what you mean about losing it. Mine is a bit loose so one day at work it slipped off my finger. I was at my desk going through some papers and books and one minute it was there and the next it was gone. I had a such a panic attack even though I knew it would be somewhere on my desk or the bookshelf and no one had come in my office. I finally found it a few minutes later. Some days I think of wearing it as a pendant instead of in my finger as an added safety measure (underneath my clothes of course, or it would look weird having a ring hanging around your neck from a chain) but I want to keep it close. Sorry I don't have a better picture. I am not wearing it today .This was in my phone from some months back(randomly taken at work (pre wudhu) because it looked nice sitting there with my watch lol. @Moalfas lolz, this ain't fair. Why are men's rings more beautifully made. They look more solid and well made in general as compared to women's. What's engraved on it? Quls? There is a gift/souvenir shop inside the roza of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). They changed the marble covering the grave after many years and decided to sell the stone as jewellery and small tablets. I bought a tear drop shaped pendant too. See if you can get one if you have family there and if they haven't run out(InshaAllah not) because I think they didn't sell it all in one go. They have been spacing it out so more people can buy. But if you make it smaller they will cut and chip off the stone
  19. Brother sorry for the most unhelpful reply ever but once you are in Jannah then who cares ;) Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has said it is a place to complete tranquility so that's enough for me. Some of the punishments of the afterlife point to a physical existence like Indeed, those who disbelieve in Our verses – We will drive them into a Fire. Every time their skins are roasted through We will replace them with other skins so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, God is ever Exalted in Might and Wise." (Qur'an 4:56) And "…poured upon their heads will be scalding water by which is melted that within their bellies and (their) skins." (Qur'an 22:19-20)
  20. I have a ring with marble from the grave of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) set in silver. It's by far my favourite piece of jewellery,one that I wear almost everyday. Other than this, there are the usual Shia rings,lol one with Aqeeq, another one with feroza, a durre Najaf one of course. And there this one with hadeed e Seeni, has something written on it. It's very special. Has come useful on quite a few occasions.
  21. The women of Ahlul Bayt(عليه السلام) Other than the two ladies mentioned in the post above 1. Fatima bint Hazam (Ummal Baneen) 2.Lubaba bin Ubaydullah(wife of Hazrat Abbas) 3. Fatimah bint Musa(commonly known as Fatima al-Masooma 4. Lady Hajra(Mother of Hazrat Ismail (as)) There is so much to be learnt from studying the lives of these women- to be an exemplary daughter, a loving wife to your husband, lessons on motherhood, lessons of being a single mother, how to stay strong in the face of oppression, making the right choices when faced with adversity, how to do sabr, making an active contribution to the society, being politically and socially active, there is sooooo much. I am sorry I cannot suggest anyone from the current era. Non Shias don't make the cut and unfortunately there isn't anyone from the Shias that I could suggest.
  22. @FatimaR Sister, for how long have you been married? Do you have kids? If he is seeing a psychologist or therapist for his depression you should discuss his anger outbursts with the therapist. The first thing would be to try and figure out of this is due to his depression or is he generally treating you badly.
