  1. Salams everyone, If two people are contemplating marriage but do not know anything about each other. Can they talk via SMS, phone calls and chat about anything including work, cooking, kids, holidays, regular chat? Can this go on for like 8 weeks and more?
  2. Yes there Is no need for hype! Since when did angels have tattoos? ;D I was just thinking what is it that I should do now that I got this sign :) cheers Yes there Is no need for hype! Since when did angels have tattoos? ;D I was just thinking what is it that I should do now that I got this sign :) cheers
  3. Salams everyone, a very weird encounter happened to me and my friend today and my friend thinks that it was an angel that spoke to us. Pretty much we are walking in street and this lady approaches us and asks us directions. She then appears again a few minutes later and tells us that because we are Muslim she wants to share something with us. She takes her phone out and reads a message to us which is about forgiving people: "please forgive me if I have hurt you, back stabbed you or slendered you..... The message went on about these stuff". She then smiled and said: " please keep this in mind and think about it". She then went and we were so shocked that we didnt really look to see whether she went or disappeared. She had tatoo and was not a hijabi. Yet my friend insists she was an angel? Is it possible? I can relate what that girl told me because I am very upset from someone. That someone has oppressed my rights and put me in a very difficult situation. Although I said to myself that I should forgive that person, it is very hard to really mean it. I am deeply upset from him and can Not Forget the Past without an apology. Every day I pray that Allah (swt) takes my rights from that person and shows him that what he done was wrong. What do you guys think? What happened with that lady was a clear sign to forgive him although I did not take my rights off him? Help!
  4. Salams everyone; I don't like to boost about my self and disclose any information. I do reply when people ask me because I feel it's rude not to reply. hmmm avoid people all together? What is solution? Or read Ayat Kursi whenever u talk about urself?
  5. Salams everyone. This is creepy. In a woman gathering at a local Islamic centre, these ladies start asking me personal questions etc after 2 days I have a near life threatening accident. After 4 days I suddenly loose my job and it is very difficult to find another internship. There was no reason why I was dismissed from work. After 7 days I fail a major university assignment and my teachers are very concerned because I have always scored distinctions. Subhannalh I am Perplexed! Its been a hectic week
  6. Salams everyone, my alarm did not ring for sahour and I haven't even had dinner. I woke up at 6am starving and so thirty that my throat/mouth was irritating me from how dry it was. I was not sure whether I am allowed to break my fast because I had intention of fasting. I done some research on topic to find what the fatwa is. I then remembered imam hussien's (as) thirst and felt ridicolous for even thinking about breaking my fast. I pray fajr and go to sleep. I dreamt that I was eating and the food infront of me Was so tasty. I keept eating in the dream and thanking Allah (swt) and imam Hussein (as). I woke up full and not thirsty. I had such a productive day didn't even feel hungry. Subhanalla wa Hamdulla ;)
  7. I stayed in kazmaim when I went to visit Iraq. Woman don't usually walk alone. You do see older lady's shopping alone etc but not young girls or youth. Kazmaim is all Shia and in Muharram it's a beautiful atmosphere with tents and mawakab set up everywhere. The hazra is amazing and quiet big. the level of security not as good as Karbala and Najaf and the security ppl can be negligent. Had an explosion when I was there that was 3 min walk to hazra... U had good responses about Najaf and Karbala so I won't repost what others said except that 10 min walk from imam hussien hazra is Abbas hazrat and they are both very crowded in Muharram ..
  8. Mashalla, thanks for sharing. I learnt that you shouldnt see giving charity as a ritual that depreciates your wealth: 1. You are not giving from your wealth but from the wealth of Allah (swt) 2. Giving charity is a blessed opportunity so we should seize it. same happened to me. After I donated to the horn of aftica, I saved about $4000 on buying a car! The car dealer kept putting the price down for me and it was a great car! Allah (swt) rewards you back in the best of ways.
  9. Salams everyone, I promised to share this story. Being a final year uni student, I am obliged to arrange my own internship position after graduation. For 6 months I have been going in person to every single pharmacy in every single suburb and asking for an internship. Yup, you can imagine the frustration! It was during this time were I realised that racism was a big issue here and the hijab isnt very welcome everywhere. I always told myself not to despair, although I couldnt help feeling depressed and the only thing on my mind was internship. To the extent that I was emotionally blinded. Even when my relative passed away, I did not feel the sorrow I would have felt if i was emotionally alive. It wasnt till one day where I get a phone call from someone called Ali that my depression went away. He was my first boss and the worst one i worked with. Subhanalla, he had a long beard, wore the muslim dress and never worked on friday. Yet, he stripped his employees of their rights. He went to hajj knowing that he underpaid me for my shift! He paid everyone cheap and made 150% use of them. He makes his staff work like a robot non-stop for such a cheap price. The only reason I put up with him is because he offered me an internship once I finish university. I hated his stingeness and manipulative nature as well as lack of courtesy. One day I was very upset from him and on the way back home to vent my anger I started writing SMS on my iphone. I never meant to send it to him. I was simultaneously listening to dua kumail and made duaa for Allah (swt) to help me. All of a sudden, I look at the iphone screen to realise that I sent my boss the SMS rather than deleting it!!! I pretty much told him how his job sucks and that I quit! OMG i went insane and did not know what to do. A few minutes ago I had an internship and a job and now I had nothing. I was back to being unemployed :( I lost my sanity and the only thing that kept me going was salatul layl and duaa to our 12th imam. Every day after salatul layl I will make duaa that I want my job back. To extent that this is the only thing I wanted in life. Reason being I have been job hunting every day since I quit, going from place to place and being rejected by everyone. I kept crying to get that job back. I then had a dream that my boss was talking to me and hiring me back. Subhanlla, I did not want to go to my friends engagement the following day but I forced myself. At 9pm that day (7 days after the incident of quitting) I get a phone call from Ali and he negotiates everything and pretty much hires me back!!!! Although I had an internship, it was a dodgy one and I knew that I will be trained to be a [Edited Out]py pharmacist if i stayed with him.. not to mention that he was still taking advantage of me. I found a part time job in another pharmacy and I took it with the hope that they offer me an internship. He was an egyptian christian who refused to pay me anything less than average and was extremely fair and generous person. I always had in mind that I will do my internship with him. We got along very well and I was favoured compared to all other staff. Towards the end of teh year,i directly asked him whether I have an internship he told me that he wont be able to offer me internship position for next year 2012 but he can offer me an assistant position! I was shocked! Yet unlike last time, i remained calm and remembered the quranic verse about saying ina lilah wa ana ilahi rajoun whenever something strikes. I kept saying it and that calmed me down further. In the next following month, internship positions were posted and everyone was applying. I got around 9 interviews but did not get any offer. One day I felt down. MAybe its not racism but I am not competent enough. Then subhanalla i recieve an email from an employer telling me that I made it to the top 3 candidates and that unfortunately he is no longer able to hire anyone but I performed exceptionally well. That put my self esteem up again. All my friends were recieving offers and I felt that I was punished for pushing working with Ali so much. I should have left my employment to Allah (swt) instead of begging and crying to get job back with Ali. Now i was stuck with Ali and its worst job on earth. Everytime somone gets a job from my collegues, I feel happy for them but start hitting depression. It wasnt till one day i realised that me spending my life thinking of internship wil not help and that at the end of the day, it was up to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. i tried really hard to stop thinking about it and to try and enjoy life again. I kept telling myself that Allah (swt) knows which job is best for me. Days passed and i was waiting for phone calls. Weeks passed and by now there were no more internship advertisements. the end of the year came and my collegues were already starting their internship. Ali was no longer interested in hiring me and he went overseas. At this stage, it no longer mattered to me whether i had a job or no. I will just stay home and keep myself busy with volunteer work at islamic centres etc i convinced myself. One day, I sincerely asked Allah (swt) after prayer to give me an internship. I knew that Allah (swt) will give me the rewards for the 8 months of trials and patience. Unexpectedly, I get an SMS as I was driving to the airport from a girl that used to go to my university. I probably spoke to her once in my life and was only superficial talk like: hi, bye... She asked me if i wanted an internship. How did she get my mobile? At the airport I also unexpectedly bumped into my friend who was boarding the plane in few min and she told me about a girl who called her and asked her specifically for my mobile! Subhanala how she was able to get my mobile before the girl boarded the plane and she contacted me and arranged everything. The job that i have now= I have never dreamt of getting! That girl who called me did not even remember the day were I bumped and spoke to her at uni! How did she remember me? How did she know my name? How did she know how to reach me? Allah Aeliam... Subhanalla al karim. The end :P
  10. Salams all; Does anyone know whether this phrase below is in the quran? Is it one of the ayat of the quran? ÇáÇ áÚäÉ Çááå Úáì ÇáÞæã ÇáÙÇáãíä Thanks, much appreciated...
  11. salams; I have been waiting for something to happen for last 8 months. Been waking up everyday with hope that faraj is near. Sometimes I used to wake up before fajr and pray salatul watr and ask Allah (swt) to guide me, i used to have beautiful dreams that comfort me. Recently, after all my friends got what they need and I am still waiting, I am starting to run out of patience.... Offcourse hamdulla for what I have... I am ever so grateful...i dunno what to do... tawakul is all what i can do right? any powerful dua you recommend? i know that patience pays off. Would you prefer happy life and hereafter OR struggle in life and excellent status in hereafter? This is something I been thinking of recently... Jazakulla kheir
  12. Salams all. Feel tempted to jump in. I been fasting for past 9 years and hence used to concept but when I had influenza last week- it was extremely difficult to fast. I fasted on first day of illness and all what i was thinkin of is when i can brake this fast cuz of immense hardship- headache unberable etc I then learnt that i should not have fasted that day and took few days off till i felt better and then fasted again.. If you are going to force yourself to fast and in turn be in bad physical and mental state whole day, dont suppose its good idea or reflects true purpose of Ramadan.. A cold/flue may be minor to some but to others it could be disabiling so its individual in my opinion.
  13. Salams everyone; I dreamt that Imam Ali (as) passed away and I was devastated and crying for 3 days. Then there is a change in scenary and there is light in background and a person wearing green (looked like imam Ali (as)) smiles and opens his hand and tells me to join them.... Then there is light and an angel tells me that on laylatul qadr they go to "wake up the moumineen" to worship etc I did not feel moved when I saw the dream and feel that it was a mistake cuz this ramadan I didnt do much and especially on laylatul qadr, i never stayed up. I read dua jawshun kaber yesterday before i slept. Maybe that could be a contributing factor? hmm could today be laylatul qadr and hence this dream forshadowing this event?
  14. Salams; Jazakulla kheir. What is the name of this dua? Seems similar to dua kumail in the beginning of it. Thanks
  15. Salams everyone and Ramadan Mubarak to you all; So I was reading about this person who converted from christianity to Islam after being secretly shown by the pope that Muhammad (pbuh) is what one of the verses of the Bible alludes to. After becoming Muslim, he names himself fakhr al Isalm and published about 20 books that refute the false claims and demonising ideologies mentioned in christian writen books about islam. I want to read his books but cant find him on google. Does anyone know how I am talkiing about? Can you please link me to his online books, if they exist. Also, sayed abdul hussein dastagheb's book called: "Kashkul dastagheb" is amazing. Anyone know an english version of the book? many thanks and jazukalla khier
