  3. Marriage Among Cousins

    Assalamalakium, I went to my father's friend's son wedding ceremony recently. When I reached there I found out that the boy and the girl were actually cousins. The boy's and girl's mothers were sisters. My question is, is this kind of marriage between cousins allowed? I mean cousins are like brothers/sisters! Is there any mention of this in the Qur'an or Hadith? I tried to find but couldn't. Thanks Wassalam
  4. :sl: I have been trying to find the answer to this question for a long time. When prophet Nūḥ (Alayhi-Salam) was ordered by Allah(SWT) to build the ark and take with him two of each kind(male and female) of all the animals, what did he do about the fish in the sea?? Did he take all the different fish in the ark too? If he did how did he manage to make them survive in the ark for 40 night? Might he have built some kind of aquarium? Allah(SWT) said he would destroy all flesh outside the ark. Doesn't that include all the fish as well? I am sorta confused in this part, and hopefully someone can answer this InshAllah. Shukhran, Wassalam
  5. Prophrt Nūḥ (alayhi-salam) Ark's Question

    :sl: Thank you brothers and sisters for your replies. Yes I agree its right not to to speculate over something that is not mentioned in the Qur'an. I myself tried to find the answers from various sources but I couldn't. I thought maybe I was missing something. So I guess only Allah(SWT) knows the answer. inshAllah if Allah(SWT) permits me(and all brothers and sisters) into Heaven I will ask him this question if i still remember it ! Wassalam
  6. Male Awrah

    :sl: Well I don't know about the navel but I am pretty sure that your knees(preferably 3/4 of your legs) should be covered at all times. And since your knees should be covered I think navel should be too. Hope you bro's/sis's can clarify about the navel part. inshAllah. Wassalam

  11. Chronicles Of Windows Vista Installation

    Salam, Well actually brother Hasib I kind of disagree to that statement. Mac OS X is based on BSD Unix OS which is up till today a very highly secure OS. Hackers find it difficult to make a virus or worm or trojan for an OS based on BSD. Why would a hacker waste days and days trying to make a virus for OS X when he can make a very dangerous one for Windows in hours. Don't get me wrong, the fact that Windows has a huge market share does matter but the security of BSD Unix shouldn't be ignored.

  13. Chronicles Of Windows Vista Installation

    Salam, I don't understand whats wrong with PC's. I have been using PC's for a very long time. And I have never encountered any sort of virus problem or BSOD or any kind of error. Sure Windows 98 was not that good of an OS. I had my share of problems in Win 98. But in XP i have never had any problems. I don't even use any anti-virus software!!! U just have to be smart enough to goto safe websites only, or open emails from the people you know only, or only run softwars you know won't harm your computer. I have use Macs myself. Sure they look nice with cool interfaces and eye-candy effects. But other than that they are just PC's with an Apple logo. I tried Ubuntu mainly because it was free and I needed a change from the XP interface. Main attraction of Ubuntu or other linux distro's is the price. Once they get games running in linux, i am gonna SWITCH!!! Just my 2 paise, Wassalam
  14. Is He A Muslim Or Not

    Salam Brother, Sad to hear that your father does not pray or read the Qur'an. However brother, as a Muslim and as a son its your duty to help your father follow the right path. Your father hasn't left Islam, he has gone astray. And he can come back to the right path if he sincerely repents to the almighty, very forgiving Allah(SWT). And as for your second question, even if a Muslim leaves Islam he has committed a Major Sin. Allah(SWT) punishes people for their deeds in many ways. But I don't think death is a punishment. He may be given a very painful punishment in hell. However, if the person decides he has made a VERY BIG MISTAKE by leaving Islam, and if he sincerely apologizes to Allah(SWT), he may be forgiven. But its all upto Allah(SWT). Hope this helps you. Wassalam
  15. Marriage Among Cousins

    Salam, Thank you for you reply Sister. I do hope that a bro or sis will help me find about this in the Holy Qur'an or Hadith. Wassalam and may Allah(SWT) bless us all!
  16. Working In A Bank

    Assalamalaikum, We know that interest is a major sin in Islam. Taking or giving interest is Har'am. So taking that fact into perspective, what does Islam say about working in banks? Banks are like completely based on interest. Its whole foundation is based on interest. So if a Muslim is working in a bank, doesn't his salary come from the interest the bank receives? If so, then that money is total Har'am for him. I hope someone can shed light on this matter. Since I am in a university, lot of jobs for students here comes from banks, and so far I didn't apply to them because I wasnt sure whether it is allowed or not. Shukhran, Wassalam,
  17. Working In A Bank

    Thank you for you reply and links brother freedslave... Sadly none of the banks that offered jobs were Islamic. So i guess it would be wise not to work in a bank. Alhamdolillah I didn't apply to those jobs! May Allah reward you brother, and bless us all Inshallah Wassalam

If only Halo was playable on Ubuntu I would completely switch over....at the moment i always have to dual boot :sl: Vista hogs like a big big big hogger in my laptop! Wassalam,
  20. Updating Php Forums

    Salam, Can you be a bit more specific? Which forum have you installed? IPB or PHPBB or SMF etc? And what version you are in right now and what version you are trying to update it to? What kind of difficulty are you facing when you try to update it? Wassalam,
  21. Talking To God

    Salam, While it is true that Allah(SWT) always listens and answers yours prayers, it isn't necessary he will do so immediately or instantly. He might be waiting for a proper time to answer your prayers. Also he could be testing you and your belief in him. If you pray for something for a long time and you don't get it, Allah(SWT) wants to see whether you stop praying because you gave up or if you continue to pray in the hope that he will surely answer your prayers someday. Also, the prayer should come from the heart and not from the mind. You should have the belief that Allah(SWT) is hearing you and will someday surely answer your prayers. Sometimes Allas(SWT) doesnt answer to prayers because he might have something way better stored for the person in the future or in heaven! Wassalam

    ummm...i am a brother lol
  23. Why Does Drawing An Image Of Allah Offend?

    Salam, Well first of all no one knows how Allah looks like or in what form he is in. So drawing his picture is out of the question. Therefore, the image you are referring to in your question is not his at all. Hence, its considered an idol. Secondly, if someone draws a picture of Allah or any of the Prophets and a Muslim sees it, then whenever he will think of Allah or any of the Prophets, the first thing that will come to his mind will be those pictures(which is not good obviously). Whenever someone thinks of Allah or the Prophets, he should be able to do it with his heart, and such pictures surely will cause interference. Hope you find this useful.. Wassalam.
