How about credit cards? Are they haram?

No, I think they are fine as long as you pay the balance in full each month. It is the interest which is haram, not borrowing.

Student loans are not.

(wasalam)

True. Exceptions are made when it is made too difficult to function in society without borrowing. As far as I know, mortgages and student loans are allowed as long as it is nearly impossible for the person to pay for house or education without them.

I would say more than 80% of the western Muslim population falls under this criteria. Your niyah should always be to secure the loan.

 

It would put a good dent in my student loan debt. It is more than my degree earned me from 2009 to 2012.

 

Can't put a price on knowledge though.

Why does knowledge cost money?

They want us to go seek ignorance :(

#FreeEducation

 

Its because the one who gives knowledge struggled and spent time to earn that knowledge. You can't just expect to learn for free. Heard in a majalis that even the righteous sahaba paid Rasullulah to give them knowledge, Imam Ali (as) used to pay Rasullulah as well to learn. He was even quoted saying that it was the best money he ever spent.

I am really not sure about that. Why is going to hawza free then? why doesnt sistani expect to be paid when he gives fatwa?

You know, when the Mahdi reappears, the world would stop working for the sake of money. Everyone would stop asking for money and being greedy, they would only ask the reward from Allah.

I can see a brighter future with education. A lot of people do not have access to it because they are poor!! So they remain ignorant

To add, i agree that an instructor may receive money from time to time, but to force the students to pay them while they are in debts? Vraiment affreux

My parents after watching the Barcelona vs Real Madrid soccer game.

 

Mom: Ahmed, do they have these kind of games here in Ameerika?

 

My Dad: No, they only have men in tight pants running around.

 

lol I never understood the concept of American specialness (sic) in sports; they play games no one else plays; they don't play games everyone in the world plays. Have we ever heard American team making headway into a great tournament of football or hockey (ice hockey doesn't count) or rugby or cricket? Heck no.

Yes we have. Maybe not field hockey or cricket but America definitely has international rugby and football (soccer) teams, how come ice hockey doesn't count? Actually, North America is known to produce the finest of athletes compared to the rest of the world, no matter what the sport. They just lack cricket skills.

Individual athletes, yes, but they lack competing teams in all sports, due to the unpopularity of mainstream sports the rest of the world plays. When was the last time the US made into football world cup final? :donno:

 

Ice hockey is a caricature of hockey, like American football is the caricature of rugby and baseball is the caricature of cricket :D

It's like they crown themselves the 'intergalactic world champions' of a sport less than a handful of nations play :dry:

Which tells us that sister Enlightened is now 20 years old as she typed this today :)

 

I've an old friendship with the numbers. When I see them, my brains automatically starts multiplying, adding, subtracting, finding patterns into it. Please don't accuse me of stalking. Another SC member did when I posted the numbers based on her posts - lol.

Enlightened is such a beautiful name to have.

I would ask the sister if she wants a trade but there are some names which just suit people as enlightened suits her.

She is a very bright student.
