  1. True. But the comparison isn't really fair as certain levels of salt and sugar are needed by the body, whereas nicotine (tar and various other carcinogens) are not. Comparing smoking to other drugs would be comparing like with like. According to Ayatollah Sistani's website: Question: Medical literature states that smoking is the main cause for heart and cancer diseases, and it also shortens the life span of the smoker. So, what is the rule on smoking concerning (a) the beginner, ( b ) the compulsive smoker, and © the passive smoker? In the third case, the medical experts say that the smoke als
  2. The OP is asking for a verdict, either haram or halal. I'm saying that there is no such ruling, and it depends largely on the individual, their judgement and the film in question. 'Film' is a very broad term and encompasses many genres. 'These movies', I wasn't talking about particular films, but just generally. Also, I have watched many films without fornication/drinking/clubbing, or anything else haram. Not for me personally. I enjoy films because they allow me to view another life and different viewpoints while not actually having to experience it myself as well as being an escape of sorts.
  3. Always baffles me as to why guys on this site seem to be so interested in what women choose to put on their face, but anyway. The general rule I go with, is that if it's an 'addition' to your natural face/features and it stands out then it is better to avoid it. For example, wearing blue eyeshadow, no one has blue upper eyelids; but foundation would be fine asmatches your skin tone, and most people wouldn't realise that you are wearing it anyway.
  4. Seriously.. People need to start thinking for themselves just a bit. If you feel like films impact you negatively as they have various haram things, then avoid them. If you think that they don't, and have postive effects on you, then watch them. Or moderate what you watch. There isn't a blanket statement for everyone. :donno:
  5. 168cm, which according to Google is around 5'6. I would say I'm average height?
  6. What is wrong with some people. :blink:
  7. When I first watched it, I also thought that it was unrealistic that such a little thing as a black man talking to him would change, what we assumed were his hardcore values so drastically. However, after thinking it over for a while, I realised that it was not as impossible as I once thought. Derek (Edward Norton) doesn't seem to have much of a life or ambition apart from his nazi/racist values, so it gives him an identity; he is also in favour with the head of their group and his has a God-like status among the other neo-nazis. I don't think it is a stretch to see why he may want to keep tho
  8. Stand by Me A story of four, witty and funny boys who go on a search for a dead body of a boy who was a similar age to them. It is an incredibly heartwarming and touching coming of age film. Boys of that age tend to annoy me, but these guys are so epic its impossible not to to root for them and wish them well. The icing on top of a already very fabulous cake, is that the dead older brother is played by John Cusack :squeez: Oh and it has a very good OST. 5/5 Note: a lot of profanity, so avoid if you dislike swearing or crude language
  9. ^ Thank you for your kind words :blush: (I can't seem to use the 'quote' function on my phone :donno:)
  10. Not very good quality pictures (taken on an old Sony Ericsson) but I thought I'd post them because although my pictures do it no justice, it is a beautiful place. Purbeck, Dorset, England:
  11. Sorry, I deleted my post because Kamran-Syed bascially said the same thing. I'm not saying she was correct but if we really are trying to help eachother improve then it's better to do it in private, which I assumed was the point of this thread, becoming more respectful towards eachother? But, to each their own and all that. We all have reasons for saying what we say I guess. -_-
  12. Fair point. Are you planning of making Islamic manga, so manga which retells Islamic stories, or manga which is like the Japanese manga, but without all the 'haram' parts?
  13. Thats exactly my point. If some people can't rely on their parents to find them a spouse, then it is worrying that it seems their local Islamic centre will not help them either. However, if the majority show that they can rely on their parents, then the lack of spouse searching services at the mosque/Islamic centre is not as important or worrying..
  14. Perhaps another question to ask would be, if people have family members and contacts who can find potential spouses for them? Because if not then, it is a bit worrying to see that according to the majority of people who took the survery, their local Islamic community doesn't do anything towards getting married.
  15. Seems like there is already a similar project happening, http://en.muslim-manga.com/ and http://muslim-manga.deviantart.com/
  16. The article or the studies are not saying that lead poisoning is THE only cause of violent crime, but rather evidence shows that it could be one of the causes of violent crime. I have posted the relevant studies done three posts above this one if anyone wishes to view them (they are also linked in the Mother Jones article).
  17. 'Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest. That is purer for them. Lo! Allah is aware of what they do.' 24:30
  18. I would do ghusl incase, just to make sure. You may want to look through here: http://www.sistani.org/index.php?p=251364&id=48&pid=2171, to see if any of it applies to you.
