  1. Salaat Al-istikhara

    sometimes it's feelings, sometimes it's a dream, if you are sleeping after you have performed it. if you performed it at night, and then went to bed, maybe you would have a dream, or a feeling when you awake. one of my sisters was wondering whether to accept a proposal, she performed istakhara during the evening, and the answer came to her in a dream, as for the man concerned, he had a feeling when he awoke. so you can feel it or dream it, or in any other way that Allah swt chooses to let you know the answer to your question. if the answer comes in a dream, who the heck are we to argue!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Have You Ever Hid The Fact You Were Muslim?

    tygrss can i just agree with you, i have a very similar convo at least once a week as well, cos i'm white. it's such a pain in the butt, people just cannot get into their head that you can be any colour, race, size, or shape and still be a muslim. it's so irritating that constant, yeah but where are you really from? er...northampton actually!!!! and i particularly love it when they ask: are you muslim? no i just go around dressed like this so that idiots can ask me if i'm muslim!!! perleeaase :D
  3. Salaat Al-istikhara

    you also need to sleep on a clean and pure bed facing the qib'la. i must be doing something wrong though, cos it just never works when i do it.
  4. Horse

    i don't know about that verse at all, but i do know that the arabian horse is the most beautiful of horses,and a huge number of other breeds of horses have the genes of the arabic horse. i love all horses, but arab horses are the best. small, light, very strong,sensitive, quick witted, intelligent, sure footed and fleet of foot. loyal and aloof, they are the very best of horses. alhumdulillah.
  5. Allah Wont Ask...

    great words. thanks for sharing.
  6. Wine

    i like that. i'll try to remember that for future reference.
  7. 99 Names Of Allah

    i recite all 99 names, but not a particular one so many times for a certain thing. but i'm probably wrong as well!
  8. Pigs

    mmm...well i look at it like this. Allah created pigs, same as he created everything else. and there is alot to be said about how pigs live naturally, and how farm animals are kept today; in the most disgusting condotions. i know i've worked on farms. we are forbidden to eat pigs, ok easy. no problem to me. but a pig is still a living thing. so if i found one injured, lost or frightened, then i would stop to help it. and if i knew that someone keeping pigs was mistreating them, i would report them to the relevant authority. it's that simple.
  9. Are We Livingin The End Times?

    oh don't be so dismal, we may as well just all give up now innit!!! i'm not, i'm off to look for a husband, and some happiness!!!
  10. Blair's Make-up Bill Tops £1,800

    well he could have at least got products that work!!! major yukko!
  11. Doctors 'find Dead Foetus In Boy'

    i saw that on a t.v show. 100 things that have been removed from the human body. or something like that. it was gross, but really interesting.
  12. Numerology In London Bombings

    merlin, i have a six digit number, so i got an extra 2 but other than that it is correct. as for age and coins, apparantly i'm 34 and have 18 coins. actually i'm 32 and i had no coins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. Prayer Mat

    i know it is ok to kill the two black things, snakes and scorpions, but i've never read anywhere that killing a lizard gets reward! i like lizards, so i'm not killing any. you'd think that as bahesti zewar is published in pakistan then they might have actually read it?????!!!!!!! i mean, it's right there????
  14. Numerology In London Bombings

    great post merlin!!! i get an extra digit in the phone number one though. annoying!
  15. Unmarried Sisters

    a great poem, i loved it. but that beard's gotta be clean and tidy thanks very much!!!!!!!!
  16. Numerology In London Bombings

    [QUthen 9+9+9=27 and 2+7=9 again. still pish poshOTE] hey, i never said it WASN'T pish posh, it's just a standing joke in our family!!! if you knew my brother you'd know why... numerology means nothing, but sense of humour is everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  17. Numerology In London Bombings

    my step father is well into numerology, does my head in! i have no belief in it myself, but 7 is of course the occult number, and according to some a mystical number. whatever...! anyway, that bears no relevance to the date of the bombing does it! have just remembered that my brothers birthday is 9/9/63. 6+3=9 therefore 999. turn that upside down you get 666!!!!!! :D now that is disturbing!!!!!! :D :D
  18. Prayer Mat

    because the book says "it is the belief of ignorant women!" so i said no offence ladies!!! the book is called Bahesti Zewar by Molana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, Zam Zam publishers Karachi Pakistan. i know everybody does not follow this book, but it is the one that is used for teaching the girls in the masjid here in the u.k. i'm sure you can find it on the internet.
  19. Recreation And Play

    do you know, i just can't remember where i read it. i've wracked my little brain, but i just can't remember!!!!! when i go to jordan, i ride all the time, nobody ever says anything to me. i'll see if i can find it.
  20. Prayer Mat

    you will find this strange belief refuted in bahesti zewar supplement(a) to bahesti zewar part nine: a few important masa'il, number 35: it is the belief of ignorant women that once the salaat is offered, the musalla(prayer mat) should be folded, if not, shaytaan will sit on it. this is absolutely incorrect. no offence ladies, i'm just copying from the book. page 853.
  21. Recreation And Play

    so if archery is a permissible form of exercise, and to use arrows is forbidden in Islam, how can you do archery with no arrows?????!!!!!!!!!!! do you mean arrows are forbidden, or arrows are forbidden to kill animals. and am i cursed for riding a horse? i mean if horse riding is good for you, and women are cursed for doing it(i know i read it somewhere) isn't that just a teensy bit sexist? please would somebody care to explain.
  22. Sex Education For Kids

    er...sex is more important than santa!!! and santa is a legend, sex isn't is it? and yeah maybe he will get in a bit of a stress about it, who knows. i simply think it is wrong to lie to kids about something so important if they ask. kids don't ask about santa do they!!!!!!!! anyway, my son got told aged 6, i got sick of creeping around the house every christmas eve (before becoming muslim obviously)so i just told him. much easier. that's all i'm saying, because that's my opinion, and my son is 13. i had 3 step daughters as well, so i have a tiny bit of experience!
  23. Recreation And Play

    very interesting...i am good at archery and horse riding, although i think as a woman aren't i cursed for horse riding? to use an animal as a target for archery is of course cruel, but then it says it is ok to go hunting. does that mean hunting for food or hunting for fun? if you're hunting for fun then you are killing an animal unnecessarily... please explain.
  24. The Atheist Teacher

    now that's a good one!!!
  25. Sex Education For Kids

    no you miss the point, he asked her already, like where did i come from, etc and she lied to him. that's what makes me cross. yeah no need to sit them down when they are really young and explain, but if they ask you at whatever age you just explain simply without lying. he believes sex is kissing and that babies come from some far away place. think how he's gonna feel when he finds out the truth. my son asked me at four, so i told him. simple as...
