  1. Logic Riddle

    Salaam alaikum, (disregarding the "how did you get in?" moral version) You....get really angry and frustrated at the absence of doors and windows, and punch a hole through the wall in which you can escape? :sl: Assalamu alaikum
  2. How Smart Are You

    Are any of the cats Tigger from Winnie the Pooh? He used his tail as a leg kind of :sl:
  3. How Pakistani Are You?

    I got 54% :sl: not bad, considering that I'm a white, mostly French girl :sl:
  4. How Smart Are You

    zero; busses don't have legs, they have wheels... :sl:
  5. How Smart Are You

    .... :sl: I bet there is no answer. Either that or there is some stupid moral behind us trying to figure it out, or some deep philosophical analogies that make no sense.. Actually though, I just googled this problem, and I keep seeing people giving the same answers that have been given in this thread. Most people agree that 10990 is correct.
  6. How Smart Are You

    I vote that we all start randomly throwing out numbers. It's slightly probable that we could get it eventually... 76
  7. How Smart Are You

    This is seriously going to keep me up all night. :sl: Alright..... 7 girls * 2 legs = 14 legs. 49 backpacks * 7 cats * 4 legs = 1372 1372 + 14 = 1386 legs total. So if I was close with 70 I must be really, really off :sl: I think I've used up all of my tries, I'm definitely stupid...
  8. How Smart Are You

    :sl: Alright.... (7*2)+(7*7*4)= 210! .....right?
  9. How Smart Are You

    Oh wait! hold on...42! are the kittens not in the bag with the cat?
  10. How Smart Are You

  11. Salaam alaikum - I am very sorry if there is another thread on this - I did a quick search, but could only find general information on apostasy. My question is: Is there any forgiveness for someone who converts to Islam, leaves the religion, but later wants to return? Is it at all possible? I don't want to go into personal details, or explain the entire situation, unless it is necessary. Thank you all so much.
  12. Muslim/non-muslim I Can't Decide.

    Asaalamu alaikum brother- Allah (swt) has given you a great challenge. Your situation is difficult, but I believe that if you personally truly want to believe, you can overcome your problems, and the reward will be great for you. Try not to stress out, however. Pray whenever you can, and be firm in asking Allah (swt) to guide you back to him. Just remember that for every step you take towards Him, He takes ten towards you. I wish you all the best. Ma'salamah.
  13. Asaalamu alaikum - I was reading the Quran earlier when something stuck out to me that I am now curious about - The Quran is the direct word of Allah (swt) to Mohammad, correct? Why is it that Allah does not refer to Himself as 'I', rather He uses the third person, but frequently says 'You' when speaking specifically to Mohammad (pbuh)? I have no idea what the Arabic actually says, or how respected the translation I use is...I'm sorry if the answer is very obvious, I was just wondering if anyone else had thought about this :sl: - Astarte
  14. Working As A Librarian

    Salaam - Hmm...oh, sorry, I meant as in some of the content of books, not actual pornography...erotica is the proper term I suppose. And many writers use it in their books a lot, and some are just really graphic and the book becomes pure smut... :j: According to some questions and answers at IslamQA (numbers 40651, 9941, 3746, and others), working in a grocery store selling haraam items is prohibited..and therefore by analogy working as a librarian would be forbidden... :sl: Thank you for helping :)
  15. Studying Mythology

    Salaam - Is it permissible to read about ancient mythology, if you take it only as fiction, and do not equate the various stories of gods and goddesses with reality? I study Latin in school, and we are translating 'The Aeneid' by Virgil...and aside from that, many projects we do require us to illustrate the deities, which may be an entirely separate issue... :sl: Any information on this would be very appreciated :sl:
