  1. A Disorder I Have.

    Oh, I didn't know that it was just for women. I appreciate you answer.
  2. A Disorder I Have.

    I have read that it is Haram to remove facial hair. "Allah has cursed those women who practise tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those who remove their face hairs, and those who create a space between their teeth artificially to look beautiful, and such women as change the features created by Allah. Why then should I not curse those whom the Prophet has cursed? And that is in Allah's Book. i.e. His Saying: 'And what the Apostle gives you take it and what he forbids you abstain (from it).' (59.7) (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Dress, Volume 7, Book 72, Number 815)" I have a neurological disorder that is associated with my OCD called "Trichotrillomania." This cause me to be constantly pull out my facial hair. Most of the time I am not aware I am doing it, and the other half of the time the urge to pluck my hair is so incredibly strong it is almost impossible to control myself. Although I am not doing it 24/7, I do it quite a bit. My question is, is it Haram for me to pluck my hair? (Also, I take a minor medication to control my OCD. Is medication haram?) I truly appreciate any help.
  3. Islam in CANADA!!!

    Canada is fantastic. In my area (near Oshawa), there arn't too many believers unfortunatly. Alot of werid ideas about what Islam is as well. :sl:
  4. That's enough of a reason for as anything else. This is a pretty sick idea of "art." I mean, what IS even art defined as nowadays. I figure the next thing they'll being doing this is larger and larger animals...maybe even humans. "Well, that dog was going to die anyways...." might seen like a decent excuse to SOME people, but, "Well, that human was going to die anyways...." seems like a pretty disgusting excuse... :sl:
  5. "what’s Wrong With A Lustful Gaze?"

    Very true. It's interesting to see it in a different perspective (or wording rather). The only thing I'd have a question with, in this other wise great post, is what to you mean by: I'm not arguing with it, just curious as to what you meant by it. :sl:
  6. Would You Marry Someone You Met Online?

    I figure that the internet is a nice place to start, but much can be concealed over the net. Such concealment, as I've heard from my relatives, could turn out to be something as tame as them giving out a fake name, to something much, much more serious, like them giving out their wrong gender. Not to dissuade you from acting on this, but in my opinion I feel that it's too big of a risk.
  7. Just Converted! Just A Few Questions....

    Thanks so much for all your help. It is VERY much appreciated and I look forward to growing in my new found faith.
  8. Hello, My name is Nic, and I've been looking for a place to explore/expand my new found faith in Islam. I figured that since this is my first post, it would be benficial to ask my first questions here. I hope I can get some answers soon. My questions are as follows: 1) Do I have perform Wudu peform reading my Quran? 2) I am having trouble learning my Salah, can I perform it with a text in front of me? (I am extremely eager to start praying, but unsure if this is okay) 3) I have the Quran on my iPod (both text/audio). I have deleted all my music except that by Muslim singers (Yusuf Islam) - is okay to put not Islamic singers on my iPod w/ the Quran? 4) I have not fasted yet - am I really a Muslim at this point? 5) I am a smoker. I've found it very hard to quit. Will I go to the hereafter if I continue? Thanks alot, any help as soon as possible would be much appreciated.
