    Hameedeh reacted to notme in Moon landing is a hoax?   
    It was real. I've spoken with people who worked on it. If it was fake everyone who worked on the projects believed then to be real. It would be an absurd conspiracy. 
    The better question is what makes you think humans are not capable of this kind of technological achievement?

    Oh Allah! I desire to marry, so arrange for me a woman from those who willingly abstain from what is unlawful and who safeguards her soul for my sake and because of her, not only my means of sustenance will increase, but also make there be in it abundance and also make it sure that she will give me a virtuous son, who will be a noble successor in my life and after my death.
    Ya Rabb, help me in finding a good wife in the same boat as me, who also understands and accepts me as I am. May she find peace and be filled with joy wherever she goes. May she have the strength and courage to find me, love me and live with me. May she find and be filled with much wisdom and clarity in her words and from her experiences. May she in her kindness, share these experiences with me and help us grow together. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6)
    Ya Rabb, You alone know what is truly in my heart. You alone know my struggles and pain, Al-Wadud. I feel unbearably lonely and do not wish to incur Your displeasure by remaining unmarried, Al-'Aziz!

    A ton of questions here. I'll ignore the regulatory and permitting stuff since that will vary regionally.
    Anyone is welcome to answer:
    If you set one up do you need a rota for volunteers 365 days a year? Does the Husaniya need opening times to be altered to accommodate this? Does the Husainiya need to buy a hearse as well? Can the facilities be made so that they are dual purpose? What works best separate building or integrated into the main one? Is this likely to impose additional financial costs on the centre, cover its costs or generate a surplus? Pay-as-you-go, subscription system or a mixture?

    Hameedeh reacted to Qa'im in Marriage proposal issues   
    I think it is sufficient to just say "my father is abusive, so we are not on speaking terms". Most people with akhlaq will not pry much beyond that, because they know that it is complicated, painful, but also not too uncommon. For some, that will be a dealbreaker, but that's ok. There will be others who will understand and will want to help you. It is better that it is said before too much emotion is invested and time wasted. If it isn't revealed early, then they may not trust you anymore once they actually find out.

    I have been thinking about this, and I rarely, rarely think about SC topics once I'm away from the keyboard. Lol 
    I now, after thinking about it, agree with others that you should tell him. 
    My wife and I have been married for many years now and if something like this happened to me I can't imagine the kind of verbal and other types of acrobatics it would take to hide this from her for years and years. I could hide it for a while, but eventually it would come out and probably in some weird, unexpected way that might put the marriage at risk. When your with someone constantly it's very, very difficult to hide big things like this. It takes a tremendous amount of energy and eventually you will ware yourself out.  If you want to be married to this guy for the long term (years or decades) then there is really no way to avoid telling him, and it's better to do it at the beginning. This also means facing the possibility that this would be too much for him to take, and then the marriage will not happen. Once you face that as a possibility, then you can move forward. Also, you can plan the way and time you tell him and control the environment around you, because you are planning it. Obviously tell him that this is confidential and not to disclose to anyone.

    My cousin's best friend passed away yesterday night, he was only 25 years old with very good ethics and moral, everyone loved him. He was a very hard working handsome young man, at this age he became an HR for a very well known company in the middle east. He is the only son for his parents and the youngest of his siblings. Please pray for him today.
     
    inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un, may allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) have mercy on him.

    Salaam and thanks for your contribution...this is what i thought may be the case.
    Over here, we are hearing that Mr Pezeshkian has more votes and this surprised me. I expected to see Mr Jalili with a much higher vote even with there being a low voter turn out. 
    I know there are many reformist minded people there but i didnt think there was enough of them to turn the scales towards a candidate thats more opposite of Mr. Raisi, (May Allah rest his soul and grant him Jannah in sha Allah)
    Anymore news?
