  1. This is too funny. The diagnosis of epididymo-orchitis (infection of the seminal tract) is clinical examination, urine testing, and gold standard is an ultrasound. The boys are kept in the hammock. They're not needed to make this diagnosis at all Funny medicine some people practice (or claim to anyway)
  2. I believe in the world we live in today, people who don't live a spiritual existence tried to fulfil this need of being with someone who is perfect in every way in the wrong context. They believe this is attainable with another human being. As muslims, we believe and understand first hand that the perfection that we, and all human beings, are drawn to is in fact the fitra we were all born with. One of the ways to reach back to true perfection, the source of all love, God Himself. That is the truest love we all search for and actually need to keep this soul alive in an emotional sense. After t
  3. It is reported from Prophet Muhammad (S) that the Gabriel went to him and said: جاء جبرئیل علیه السلام إلی النبی صلی الله علیه و آله فقال: “یا محمد عش ما شت فانک میت و احبب ما شت فانک مفارقه و اعمل ما شت فانک مجزی به و اعلم ان الشرف الرجل قیامه بالیل و عزه استغناؤه عن الناس.” O Muhammad! Live for as long as you want. You will finally die. Love whatever you want. You will finally be separated from it. Do whatever you want. You will finally be rewarded for it. Know that a man's honour is in his staying up at night and his dignity is in his independence from people. Al-khisal P. 29, No 20.
  4. The most important thing i can think of, after asking Allah to take you by the hand and getting through this: CUT TIES WITH YOUR FRIENDS WHO SMOKE WEED ALL OF THEM Change your mobile number so they can't call you. I mean literally never associate with them at all again, because in the beginning you will be too weak to say no all the time, and eventually will fall in the trap again before too long. Stay away till you reach a point where you never dream of touching the stuff again. Don't even say goodbye, they will talk you out of it.
  5. I wasn't aware of where heparin is derived from. My understanding is, when a haram substance is used in infintismal levels in medical products, it is halal. The best example i can think of is alcohol in cough syrup, and this is backed by learned scholars like Sayyid Sistani. I guess if you can find heparin made with halal ingredients, go for it (this will be pretty difficult indeed), otherwise settle for whatever derivative you can find. He needs his heparin for his dialysis sessions, and life always comes first in Islam And Allah (SWT) knows best
  6. As per my initial response, the most wasteless thread in the history of shiachat. Website moderators, can someone please hand them the coveted trophy??
  7. I saw the title of the thread had 'weird' in it, and immediately drew me to a little known Dr Suess quote "We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone who's weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness, and call it love". Also, i half read this entire thread to make sure no one quoted him before me. Does that make me weird? The jury is out
  8. Sister, keep in mind the OP has copied and pasted poems in other threads without admitting he copied and pasted them Example: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?/topic/235013149-do-not-stand-at-my-grave-and-weep/ Why am i even bothering to mention this? I guess i'm on Troll Patrol today (pun totally intended) Omlette du fromage (my contribution to the frenchiness of this thread) Salam
  9. The mods should make a competition for 'Thread which is the biggest waste of time on Shiachat' Despite all the muta, marriage and tatbir threads, this one would still win. Hands down.
  10. That's called a white guy trying desperately hard (and usually in vein) to impress his hoped-to-be desi mother in law
  11. These 2 verse are very interesting, because if this interpretation is correct, it shows yet again how superior the scientific understanding of the Quran. This is the key part. Focus on verse 6 first. What is the second last word? water right? Not sperm (nutfa is sperm). And what's the last word: daafiq, which literally means sterile (this word is also used to describe a vasectomy). So this verse is talking about water which is sterile and free of sperm. Verse 7 is talking about water which is free of sperm, which comes from a place between the ribs and the back. The ribs represent the front of
  12. Um, your topic is still up. Also, there was nothing wrong with the brothers who gave links for proper texts with information. Yes i understand that you want quick direct answers to some of your questions, but to have a proper understanding of the school of thought of Ahlul Bait (ie shia islam), you need to go through our books.
  13. Brother finland, hello, salam Alaykum, and 'terv' (i hope i said that correctly) Before i head off for dinner, i will give some brief answers to your questions: 1) Jihad: in Islam there is a concept of minor Jihad, and major Jihad. the minor Jihad is to participate in a war (a just war, not any ridiculous war). the major jihad is what each and every human being goes through every day. ie being a good parent, a hard worker, earning money lawfully, feeding your kids. loving your parents, being truthful and loyal, and so on and so forth Also, jihad where innocent people are killed is not jihad, i
  14. Ali Musa is right, most of the halal meat in the gulf countries come from australia and new zealand (i believe they ship them in massive passenger ships, to slaughter them in their destined countries). There are a few halal outlets in Australia for these westernised companies like KFC and Mcdonalds, notably in muslim heavy cities like Sydney. My question though is, why would you use that option when you have much much much tastier (not necessarily healthier) options of the local halal shawarma and pizza joints (i got a 13 inch pizza yesterday dripping with chicken, i fought a hard battle to e
  15. That's it. This is the last time my buddies and i leave the comfort of our own homes and visit Saudi for anything other than Hajj and Ziyara. And i thought we were your kindred neighbours. For shame....
  16. For those who were confused about Marble's statement about coconuts, he was referring to westernised brown people. who like a coconut have a brown appearence on the outside, but think and behave like a white person on the inside. Bananas is another term for asians, who are 'yellow' (quote unquote) on the outside, and behave like they're white.

  17. This is an elaborate idea, but basically, i believe all human emotions are healthy, and need to be experienced. Context, my friends, is what determines if it's healthy. This is what we need to get right. Sadness, uncertainty, happiness, hope, longing, regret, anticipation etcetera ad infinitum Islam is beautiful because of it's layers. We're sad, yet happy. Have certainty, but are so uncertain. At first glace, this seems contradictory Remember the word on sesame street today? Context. We're sad when we see or experience injustice, pain, suffering, yet we are happy because we know when it happ
  18. I used to think my country was extravagant. Now i realise they're damn right ridiculous. http://edition.cnn.com/2013/04/11/world/meast/dubai-police-lamborghini/index.html?hpt=hp_c5
  19. Nice thread, i will comment briefly about some points, without rambling (if i achieve that, this will be a first for me) Lover for Ahlul Bait and the creation of the universe. This is a deep subject. This is how i look at it. I put the Ahlul Bait on one side, and the universe on the other. Ahlul Bait are the embodiment of pure love and servitude of Allah (SWT). The universe is a collection of stellar dust, and we (everyone other than Ahlul Bait) are basically star dust (only our taqwa (God conciousness) ever makes us worth more than that). Imam and occultation: you might have an incomplete un
  20. Anything which has a beginning, cannot be infinite. Yes we may have no end, but we definitely know we had a beginning, so we're finite, without that contradicting the idea of us having no ending from now on.
  21. Has anyone ever asked a Marja3 if it is alright to be an organ donor when there is a high likelihood (but not certainty) that the organs will be given to a non muslim (like when one lives in a non muslim country). It's one of those questions on the back of my mind that i keep trying to remember to ask my local scholar, but when i sit in front of him, i draw a blank! People change all the time, perhaps the non muslim i donated my kidney to might one day be in the army of the Imam (as). The story of the magicians at the time of Musa is a testament to this.
  22. OP, this is my view on tatbir I feel, if someone has memorised the entire Quran, understands it's whole interpretation, has implemented Quran in his/her life perfectly, has not commited any sin AND then goes ahead to cut themselves, well then i say someone with such a huge amount of knowledge and Iman, a sinner like me won't begin to understand their love for the Imam, and they should go ahead. For anyone who has less than memorised and understood the complete Quran, it makes no sense that they would love the Imam so much to cut themselves, as the cut is usually directed by other motives.
  23. Repenter and vader are correct. 1 milligram of finasteride (proscar or propecia) is a good remedy to slow down hormone driven hair loss (you won't grow back what you've lost). visiting a dermatologist is the right first step, though a GP will do as well. keep in mind it is a life long treatment regimen, and does have it's side effects, like reduce libido (which for a lot of people on this site is actually the best benefit!) get a script for the 5mg tablets and get a pill cutter to cut it to quarters, it would save whallops of cash
  24. The fear in context of Allah (SWT) is of losing Him, and His love, through our (my) own actions. Besides the fire and physical tortures, hell in it's elementary concept, is a place where one is far from Divine grace and presence.
  25. Salams all, I think Con artist is a bit too flattering. Probably should call this guy a toddler on a sketch-o-matic. So this guy emails me this morning telling me he's been robbed at his hotel in belfast, and needs money quickly to catch his flight tomorrow. Now, mama raised no fools. I told him that i was very interested to help him (called himself denil anwari) but he needed to inform me how he knows of me. I have yet to hear back from him. I have a sneaking suspicion he discovered my email on this site. Just a friendly reminder to everyone here, if someone (i don't care who it is) asks yo
