  1. Salam! Hope you are well!

    1. Ali Musaaa :)

      Ali Musaaa :)

      Salaam!!!! aH I'm well! Hope you are too iA? How did exams go? Free at last, no? :P

      When's your graduation day?

  2. Salam, As a member just mentioned, these severe punishments have been mentioned in Christianity and Judaism also. Of course we can't deny this, it is within the Sharia and shouldn't shy away from explaining it. Stoning isn't in the Qur'an but rather, lashing for adultery etc. I'm not knowledgable enough to confidently say how far scholars have derived stoning from ahadith and whether it is contested or not. So for the sake of the lashes which is in there, then I say the following: The important thing to remember when explaining to people who do not understand this concept is that as Muslim
  3. Shameful to admit, but I haven't picked up a book for yonks. Unless it was university related. And now that I'm done, I have a complete mind block and have lost my pace in reading. Any recommendations for something witty, dark & sarcastic? Something to catalyze this void lol!
  4. Bump. Just checking up on this hot thread I started, ya know. :P
  5. Salam, Well - if she seemed to attract you outwardly that's the first step. Although it's not all about looks, there is no denying that attraction is definitely an important factor. At the end of the day you have to like what you see. In saying this, she doesn't have to be top of the notch - attraction also grows with getting to know the person & marriage. If she looks alright to you, then ask to meet her with her parents permission. Regularly visit, and speak to her under her own roof - so in other words, when your families visit each other, every now and then you two can speak in an
  6. Salam, Short answer: no. I respect shia/sunni marriages, I have direct family members married to sunnis. But the difference between them and me, is exactly what another member mentioned above and that is preference. It depends to what extent you are practising. And to what extent you can be tolerant. My sister for example who is married to a sunni, does not regularly attend Shia programs, isn't as familiar with events regarding ahlul bayt (as) and even the Sahaba for that matter. Her children however, are attending the mosque with their father and learning his path. Both parents are fine o
  7. uh, "I am KhalilAllah. I struggled to figure out a thread topic so here goes nothing!" :lol:
  8. This poem is beautiful, on so many levels.
  9. Wow, is the ridiculousness in this thread that contagious to everybody? Everyone condemning the elephant in the room is becoming one themselves. You either make your comment, VOID of name-calling and childish sarcasm, or you ignore. S. i. m. p. l. e
  10. Salam, After you've broken your fast with dates: one third water, one third food, one third air. If dates are all you can or want to eat, then I'd assume you'd eat more than the recommended 3. But just going with a date would deplete your already struggling body of energy. People binge the minute they sit down and this eradicates all the health and spiritual benefits of fasting. Of course this is hard to adhere to, and that's coming from the sweet tooth that runs to the sweets table after iftar :lol: But in saying that, adhering to what I mentioned is, I think, the recommended etiquette o
  11. I want Servidor to come back. Don't know if he has been as active since last year. But I really did enjoy reading his posts.
  12. WS, You've got a bit of a conundrum going on. There are two issues: 1) You may find that the parents of the girl are not supportive, but she may be. 2) Neither will be supportive of the matter. It's hard because you wouldn't want to conceal the matter to the parents of a woman who you are not bound to yet. Even to her, because she will obviously discuss your future plans with her parents and your duty bound to give her, more than her parents, that sense of direction before you are married. Then again, if you are persistent with a girl you really want to marry, then you have to work
  13. WS, hiya! Hope you have been well Marbles. I think it just might be :D I hope so as much as you. I haven't written anything in a long time. So forgive me if my future posts are rusty :lol:
