  1. When We Die.....

    :D I appreciate the replies, my question has been answered :D
  2. When We Die.....

    Islamically, At what point are we united with loved ones after we die? Can we be comforted with thoughts that maybe someday we might meet those who have left us?

    Mashallah, Congratulations!
  4. Urgent Information Required...

    Krispy Kreme donuts also contain traces of alcohol. Yet many muslims choose to ignore that fact citing similar reasons. I find it self serving and convenient. Maybe someone could shed some light on this issue.
  5. Urgent Information Required...

    Not sure but lots of the fancy cakes contain rum/alcohol so you just have to be careful or just avoid. Try eat-halal.com, they have interesting information.

    Pictures tell a beautiful story but nothing prepares you for the real thing. You will be blown away at the beauty.
  7. Pictures From Hajj

    Incase you missed the first part, you can see the pictures (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.flickr(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/photos/eekay/sets/72057594049955606/"]here[/url] I'll repost the email i recieved from Esam explaing it all : "It is definitely not safe walking around with a camera inside the haram, especially during the hajj days. There is usually tight security at the gates and they either don't let u in at all or take away your camera! I manage to sneak my camera inside a couple of times but due to tight security i couldnt take that many photos. The ones i took were taken usually within 10-20 seconds span when I made sure no security personnel is around, even though there are usually many in plain clothes. Funny thing I found out later that there is even some penalty in the law against photography in some restricted areas, including the haram. Another thing you might notice would be many locals coming up to you and convincing you that photography is haraam in Islam, when they see you walking around with your camera even on the streets. It is definietly a tougher job but the immense architectural beauty and the whole atmosphere is totally worth saving on the lens. I wonder if they allow me to take some good photographs next time if I request them officially. Lets see! Wassalam Esam"

    With unbeatable technology and careful manouvering, I believe we'll be seeing more pictures from the Haram. This is just the beginning.

    You're all welcome.... No, they were taken by a brother who had gone to hajj In an email i recieved from Esam he explains it all : "It is definitely not safe walking around with a camera inside the haram, especially during the hajj days.
