  1. (as) It really depends on the person who is fasting. Some people may become hospitalized if they fast. Others just get really tired and weak. Being weak and tired generally doesn't qualify as being "harmful". You should ask your local Sheikh/Moulana regarding this issue and clarify with him. Shiachat and online sources in general are not good places to get rulings for jurisprudence. Wassalam
  2. Thanks bro I used Nikon D80 with the 50-200mm lens. The camera is not the ultimate contributing factor for a good image (although it does hugely influence it) as long as its professional. Its more about lenses and techniques. I like to capture images with 200mm focal length. White balance is another key for a good picture. Just work with what you have and then move up. Thats what I did. Hope that helps
  3. Just got into photography and I'm loving it so far :) more here
  4. It seems like a contradiction since your understanding of divine justice is limited. This is true if the definition of justice is what you said. But what makes you think that His justice does not contain mercy? Can't God's divine justice be intertwined with His divine mercy? His justice, therefore, is not not the same as the literal translation of justice which we can comprehend.
  5. Its not wrong, but its pointless. When you compare anything with Allah (swt) then you are underestimating Him. It is, however, wrong to say that Allah's mercy is greater than ours. Our mercy directly comes from Allah. Therefore, to compare Allah's mercy to ours' would be illogical.
  6. Absolute mercy, absolute justice, absolute wisdom, absolute power, absolute authority... etc He is merciful, not because someone else is less merciful than him. Rather, he possesses absolute mercy. “He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth: He has made for you pairs from among cattle: by this means does He multiply you: there is nothing whatever like unto Him, and He is the One that hears and sees.”[surah Ash-Shura 42, Verse 11]
  7. Nice answer. Examples of relative terms would be "powerful", "strong", "beautiful", "ugly", "tall", "short", etc. No one is "tall" per say. Person X is considered tall because persons A, B, C, D and Z are shorter than him. If persons A, B, C, and Z were as tall as person X, then person X would not be considered tall (assuming that we are only comparing the listed 'people'). Relative terms are used to compare one thing to another. No one is absolutely tall, skinny, beautiful, short and etc. They are relatively tall, skinny, beautiful, short, and etc. However, this concept cannot be applied to Allah (swt). He IS the absolute reality. For example, when we say "Allahu Akbar" (god is great), we do not compare his greatness to anything else. It is not even correct to say "God is greater than everything" because as soon as we make that statement, we are comparing Him to something else. He is great because that's who He IS. This sermon can also be helpful in understanding Allah (swt).
  8. Most computers detect words and you should be able to highlight text. If you can do that, then open up the document in PDF, highlight the words in the document, copy it, and paste it onto a text editor.

  10. Watch and enjoy XD Apologies for any mistranslations. I tried my best. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GsCDH4qc_8
  11. Every action and change has processes and steps. Miracle simply hastens or skips [some/all] steps and processes in order to bring about change. This is a viewpoint of some Urafa.
  12. You are belittling Haj's words. Not cool.
