  5. Accepting Lottery Winnings From A Third-party

    nope that won't do because the base is Haram its just like giving Charity after selling liquor...or after putting your money into the bank and getting riba on it and that money to charity...its like the source is haram.
  6. Islam in America

    Salam guyz, Man you guys make me feel old..I remember the good old MSA days...I guess since H. school gone no more MSA.........n I'm out of skool already :sl: not fair...datz true enjoy young age while it last.........newayz so um..I'm from Houston, Texas and itz like a DESI town here...btw over here its LIKE pplz are so diveresed within a muslim community....and ofcourse 90% of them are all about culture.....which is so not kool..even like your own muslim brothers and sisters think that its so unkool to wear Hijab and etc. They think its an embrassment...so u knw its really hard to acutally follow Islam unless you company is good and obviously you can't find good ccompany that easily because almost everybody is going on the same path. Most of my so called *friends* think its embrassing that I cover myself because they don't and some of the friend I have they wud pray 5 times but they go for clubbing and stuff and I was talkin to one of the gurls I knw and she go like I went clubbing to this arabic club last night and you shd have come because there were so many gurls who wore Hijab they were not dancing but sitting with their friends. I was acutally amazed at our society I duno where is this society going.....I don't wanna stereotype but mostly when a female wear Hiajb its liKE she prays and she doesn't sit or meet in those type of gatherings (atleast I wouldn't). I don't even want go to places where there are female but have music and dancing. INSHALLAH when I have kids there is going to be no culture in them........................ON Y Islam!

  8. Parents Stopping My Firend

    keep telling him how beautiful and poefrect way of life Islam is...try to win him over again...if really believe and if Allah wills...it will happen for him..btw it might be your test as well so keep on trying and don't get frustrated...INSHALLAH..it will turn out for the best..do the best you can bro becauase converting somebody to Islam is not an opportunity we get everyday :sl: INSHALLAH you will bei n my prayers...I duno about involving parents and etc because you might not want to get into fight with his parents because just like you love your parents he/she must be his/her parents. So act paitenly..n keep on trying kepp on talkin about Islam...INSHALLAH it will happen :sl:
  9. Muslims In Western Society

    okay lets think about it this way........ If I'm in US ...I get to see so many ppl dress unappropriately (thats a sin ...if we take a 2nd look) but in SA its not like that because everybody is dressed decent they r covered...and etc...so we get to avoid those sins(n ofcourse I'm leaving countries like Pakistan....Egypt out of this because they mightbe considered Muslim countries but they don't follow Islam totally) Interest free things... Halal food (a lot of pplz eat McDonalds and etc here..even though its wrong) no drinking (did ya see a judge in SA sent 20 ppl to jail and ordered them some lashed because they were at a party were at a non-mahram gathereing and drinking... ofcourse the gatherings...they r more Islamic..as in segregated.. so I'm definitely for living in an Islamic environment...so hopefullllyy (by Allah's will)...I will move somebody...I really want to :sl:
  10. Everyone Is Made Of Plastic

    salamz, I remember going through that phase when I was in High Skool...I thought about the same stuff about if I'm dreaming...about this world.....or if everything has a meaning then why don't I know it ...and ..uptil this day sometimes it crosses my mind.............about things that happen around me ...I think what does this have to do with the world...why is this happening and etc ...so for me I think its NORMAL lolz...I just think that itz all Allah's plan and thats it I leave at that because if I get into it deep I knw its not gonna go newhere pretty.........n I don't want weird thoughts crossing my mind...(they have before when I young)..........so bro just pray and it doesn't matter what people think seriously because I have learned that most of the ppl r gonna talk one way or other![using large font size is not allowed]
