  1. i vote montreal only cause im not leaving the city to meet you freaks. however, what would we do? what activities could we do. it would be awesome if we could get a shcool bus and paint it all the colors of the rainbow, play some MIA and wear our abayas and thobes and try to convince people were part of the somalia division of the harry potter fan club... that would take up a good hour or so. you guys think up of something that will fill up the rest of the day.
  2. true, i have a christian friend who masha allah has a very pure heart and i pray allah guides her onto a straight path, amiin. anyhow, she is very modest and when asked why she said she believes in waiting until marriage and doesnt see the point of giving the whole world a free show of what her husband will be getting... thats kinda crude written in black and white like that, but she s right. the head covering to me is very important cause that is how you identify who is muslim, but with that said it isnt a full hijab if yr not properly covered. the prophet (peace be upon him) would say " iiman and haya go together like this" and he would stick his index and middle fingers together and say "if one departs, the other falls apart". some people are born with an abundant amount of haya, masha allah, and others have to cultivate it and grow it.of course yr clothing is an artificial piece of modesty but its an obligatory one that serves as a protection. personally i think wearing the head scarf without proper attire is still a little better than wearing no scarf and equally unislamic attire cause at least in the first case the person is affirming their islamic identity, and sisters can easily spot them and give them dawah... which btw im very poor at. if someone can give me some pointers on when to keep quiet and when to say something, please let me know.
  3. the thing is women can drive and wear whatever they like in the outskirts of saudi arabia. its only in the heavily populated places where you have more restrictions and its known nationally that women do drive and wear colorful clothing outside the city. in yemen, a neighbouring country of similar "culture", women drive, vote and are even represantatives in the parliament.
  4. it was a long read, i almost completely by passed it, but its beautiful. the tips are quite concise cause that is actually how i came about wearing hijab, started praying regularly, reading about the prophet (peace be upon him) and discussing islam with friends and suddenly i needed it. no one told me to, i just needed it and i never looked back since. its been 1 year and a half now and i think ive been properly dressed from the begining but now i wear abayas... people when they see me wearing abaya they think im a lot better than i really am, which makes me feel guilty cause im really far from the perfect muslimah. more emphasis should be lain on how to increase iman cause i think a strong surge (cause it does fluctuate) is the ticket to hijab. about taking it off, i know sisters whove done this and i personally dont understand it except maybe they were doing it for the wrong reasons. the writer of this piece states that taking it off is a grave sin so what is a good advice for the sisters who have that worry? 1- seek refuge in Allah 2- make duca 3- think about it rationally, what would make you take it off? is it more rewarding than keeping it on? there must be more, add on.
  5. after 8 years of conspiracy theories and corny rap lines in remembrance of the "legends", at least one of the rap murder cases can be put to rest.,0,6646159.story
  6. there isnt anything shameful in staying home and taking care of yr loved ones (in fact if caring for yr family was considered paid work some women wld be earning more than their respective husbands considering how they are family nurse, psychologist, care taker, cook, cleaner, secretary etc.) how much a person earns or contributes financially in a home shouldnt be how you value them and with that said there is nothing wrong with a woman earning her own money if her children arent being neglected, and like someone else said, especially when its a job that benefits our ummah. ps, i think some people are grossly underestimating the power the "housewife" wields.
  7. anyone familiar with al maghrib institute?
  8. can anyone tell me more about sufiism, and whether it existed during the time of the prophet (peace be upon him). a book recommendation would be preferred.
  9. man, this is not cool. she speaks better than me. BOOO-urns! can i have nothing?
  10. ^^^than im staying away from minneapolis.
  11. inna illahi wa inna illahi rajicuun may Allah (swt) have mercy upon him and make him amongst his favourite slaves. amiin. may Allah (swt) give you and your family strenght and a firmness of iiman. amiin.
  12. ummm, lets not take india as a point of reference for marriage please.
  13. this was the most depressing exchange of thoughts ive seen on sol during my brief stint here.
  14. Originally posted by The Rendezvous: There must be a reason why the HOLY QURAAN even went ahead to lament ..That we should atleast try to befreind CHRISTIANS rather than YAHUD..(Taking CHRISTIANS ) as our brothers.. do u guys still dispute that? actually the quran says that we shouldnt take the christians and jews as friends because they are only friends of one another, they plot against us. so the question is, why focus on one group when they both have the same goal of erradicating us.
