If you mean you got your eyebrows tinted then it’s fine, your wudhu will be valid.

I dyed them at home, so is it the same thing? Thanks so much you’re a life saver lol.

Yeah it is, as long as the water touches the skin, it’s fine. Btw did you use a template or just  freehand put dye on them? I’m curious to know lol.

Thank you! Bless you!

I just did it freehand following the shape of my brows lol! They are medium-fulling but a few sparse areas here and there which looked off. It looks pretty natural after the tint, just more filled in. You could try outlining a shape with maybe an eyebrow pencil if you wanted to try?

l always knew cosmetics invalidated wuhdu, but the water-must-touch-the-skin part was never said  --around me, anyway.

Cosmetics is so, blaaah-yuck. Cosmetics never do any good and some of those Gulf-Gurls look absolutely terror-able.

Cosmetics such as mascara, eyeliner etc. would invalidate wudhu and one would need to wash them off before starting the ablution. The sister was talking about hair dye though and that is fine for wudhu.

There is no "one size fits all" solution to any problem, but if we discuss with others, someone could possibly give us another option that we did not know was available.

Qur'an says don't talk to men in a soft voice. I try to follow that and I only talk to men when I am in a bad mood to make sure that I remain completely serious. But it seems like my tone doesn't matter to them much. They are offended when I avoid talking to them and they get happy when I do talk to them. Am I focusing too much on gender and they just want to talk to me to feel a human to human connection? I don't feel any connection while making small talk, it feels like a chore and if I make small talk with too many people for too long, it gives me a headache. Why do people like to talk so much? Why don't they enjoy the peaceful silence?

Don't you just love it when folks change their names and go nuts online?

We had one  historically rather troublesome tribal citizen change names to our word for " moonlight" ( not that that fooled anyone) and start attacking people on the Internet. 

I told the person that the choice of moniker was perfect for a lunatic.

Yeah totally, it's just so thoughtful and understanding.

Sounds like that person is missing a few screws. Choice name if I say so myself.

^ You're correct. Was elected to tribal council by a bunch of cousins who lived to regret it. My family was one of the ones that was instrumental in getting this nut booted off tribal council before any more damage was done. So now it's fall-out time. Fortunately, these kinds of folks  manage to make such a nuisance of themselves they generally end up with little support.

I’ve been on Jenny Craig for about a week now. I’m on the three month plan. (Want to lose 20.) I like the food, although since many of the foods are low-fat, I tend to sneak a tablespoon of heavy cream into the taco meat for a bit more flavor, and satisfy my cravings.

I’ve lost a little bit of weight, which is nice. However, I don’t like how my meal plan has fruit added to breakfast as opposed to more protein-rich foods.

My ex-mother-in-law lost a lot of weight on Jenny Craig.

I’ve heard that a lot of people tend to lose weight on Jenny Craig and get the yearly membership (after reaching their goals) to keep up with portions and accountability. Did your ex MIL keep the weight off? 

My consultant lost 60 pounds with JC and has maintained her weight since. I hope can keep it off after I’ve stopped purchasing their meals. We will see.

I only ever knew her as a small, slim woman, though I've seen photos of her heavier, so apparently she kept it off on regular meals afterward.

My thought for this evening:

I never thought I would read about women and their frustrations about their dietary disasters --at least on this thread.

Maybe I should invent a belly-blaster and a hip-hacker for you girls.

:D

Although, I could lose about 25 kgs.

@hasanhh again with the mysterious "disagree"....

Are you disagreeing with wishing people a happy celebration of the outlawing of racial slavery in Texas, the last slave state in the US, or are you disagreeing with my wish that we continue working to end all forms of oppression?

Happy Summer Solstice for those in the north and Winter Solstice for folks in the south! 

Summer has decided not to come yet here. It is cold and rainy. The sun remains a theory. We've skipped "summer" before and might again this year...

 

we're celebrating " Long Days" anyway!

 

 

PS...this is a bit of humor from Shia Gentleman... Below is a portrait of him before he came here and met us ...next to a portrait of him these days.

Why do desis love to call other people fat? Especially desi men, they may be bald, fat, short, ugly but they comment on women's appearance like they are Prince charming. There are some desi men at my work and they keep using the Urdu word for fat whenever they are around me. On Wednesday, they were working near me and they must have used that word 20 or 30 times. Before you make fun of someone's appearance, at least look at yourself in the mirror. I am surprised that it didn't upset me at all. Probably because I have zero respect for them, so I don't care about their opinion. But I feel like it's my responsibility to confront them, otherwise they will think I am encouraging them.

To boost their own pathetic self esteem?
