  1. Astagfirullah, Is There Any Thing More Worst In The Whole

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, I do agree that atrocities against women happen everywhere... and these things that are done to Indian women are disgusting... Its just not every culture/country does the same atrocities to women... there are many different kinds... but anyhow, there was a reporter that went to India doing a report in India about the dowries and the bride burning and also about women whose husbands threw acid on their faces... she went up to some women and asked them how they felt about themselves in their society and several of them said that they are worth less then the soles of their shoes/sandals... sad sad sad... fi aman Allah, Ameera
  2. The Other Side Of Dubai

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, I can't read the article since I have to be a paid member... but I do know that here in UAE (its not just Dubai) the situation for immigrant workers is appauling. Someone I know works at one bank here and it is making tons of money... the bank was started by, and owned by local Muslims from here and it is not an Islamic bank, Astagferallah. They did just start an Islamic banking for those who wish to use it, but to me, since this country has Islamic banks, I won't use one that has uni-Islamic and Islamic banking services under their banking company. I have given dawah to this person about the evils of the bank and riba and such and Alhamdulillah this person has been thinking about it and started applying to work at different places. Anyhow, at that bank, there is an office boy who is from India. He works the hardest and his hours are I think it is 8am to 8 or 9pm...so he works long hours and only gets one day off a week. He does the running around for everyone...copying papers, filing, doing errand etc... just to make a quick explanation.. the office boys are hired from another company that brings them from India. His salary is 500 dirhams a month.. or 136.00 US dollars... or about 78 UK pounds. Of that 500 dirhams, he has to pay the company he is with 150 of it so then he is left with only 350 dirhams.. or 95.00US dollars or 54.00UK pounds!! but thats not all.. he gets housing from the company he is with, but it is shared by many people... I don't know the number but I am pretty sure its probably rediculous... ...and get this.. they are NOT ALLOWED TO COOK at the house!!! so they have to go out and buy all there meals! At the bank, the employees on the same floor bring food for him to eat and also very month they gather money together to give to him because they feel so bad for him... well, everyone except for their Indian manager who earns a lot of money... he isn't nice to the office boy at all. and the situation is the same for all the office boys on all the other floors on that bank. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  3. as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, I just wish that the protests against the publishing of the cartoons had never turned violent. I think a united peaceful protest and even the united boycotting of Danish goods etc... send a strong enough message already. There is nothing to gain by burning down the Danish Embassies, or Chanting "Death Death Death".. etc... it only increases the stereotype of Muslims that so many people have. But I am proud of the many Muslims who are out there actively taking the opportunity to speak out and give dawah to others and teach them why we protest the drawings and helping others understand what they are so ignorant about. Look at all the dawah being given out on several Muslim websites and also the works to publish books about Prophet Muhammad in many different languages to get others to read. Mashallah. But its too bad that to so many non-Muslims the actions of some of the Muslims who have turned violent are all they look at and they don't bother to see the peaceful protesting and continue with their negative generalisations of all Muslims. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  4. Woman With A Past

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, inshallah brother you will find that perfect one you are looking for... but really think about marrying out of desperation... if she has been married before or made mistakes in the past with dating etc... virgin or no virgin, are you always going to be thinking bad aobut her because of this even years after the marriage? If you aren't going to be able to let go of her past then it may come up at a later time and hurt her, you, or the both of you. so if you are going to marry someone who has had experience with marriage and/or a relationship, don't do it out of desperation, but only because you can decide to move forward with her because she seems like someone who will make a good wife. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  5. as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, does anyone know a hadith that is about one of Prophet Muhammad's (salallahu aleyhi wa salaam) companions who was in a moment of anger and was in a position that he could kill someone but refrained and when he was asked about it he said that at that moment he would have killed as revenge for himself instead of for Allah? fi aman Allah, Ameera
  6. :D as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, May this website help other children not have to suffer the same fate as this little boy. :D This is a site a grandmother made for her deceased grandson. She had several photos of him that showed a white reflection in the right eye. She didn't know what it meant and 7 months later he was diagnosed with metastatic retinoblastoma and later died from it. Later she discoverd that those photos were photos of the earlier stages of that eye disease and had she realized this, his life could have been saved with early intervention. browse this site and you can see several photos and get more information...

  7. Sushi

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, that sushi rice recipe is an authentic one.. but we never measured..just added the rice vinegar to the pan and added sugar and salt and tasted till perfect. :D... my family owned a Japanese restaurant for 56 years and my father was a sushi chef and that is how he made the rice. but, guess what? there is an even easier way!!! My mother uses it all the time and it is really good. just buy sushi rice seasoning. you should be able to buy it at a Japanese market. the best brand is : Mitsukan and here is what it looks like: here is a sight that has photos of how to roll sushi for rolls. ummm... you can get creative with the fillings. you can use raw and/or cooked foods that you love. for the nigiri sushi.. the ones with a little bed of rice with a piece of fish on top.. its basically you put a small amout of rice in your hand and use both hands to gently squeeze and shape it. slicing the fish/seafood is a whole other lesson as it is truly an art to master it. but the rolls are fun to do. at home we always used to just have a big bowl of sushi rice,a bunch of sushi seaweed sheets, and a platter of different kinds of fillings, cucumbers sliced think and lengthwise, avocadoes sliced thin lengthwise, crab, tuna, salmon, etc... whateve you like.. you can even do chicken or deep fried foods... and then a bowl of mayo (some foods are good to roll with mayo) and wasabi and you spread rice, mayo/wasabi on the seaweed sheet, add your fillings you want, and roll it into a cone shape and eat. Of couse you put some soy sauce for dipping and you can mix it with some wasabi if you like. Wasabi is a protector to some bacterias that could be present in raw fish. You should at least have a little bit with your soy sauce just for that reason. I hate wasabi but can tolerate a lil' bit of it. I don't like things that are spicy in the nose. like hot yellow mustard. looks like this: you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.kabukisushi(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/images/temaki.jpg' alt='temaki.jpg'> now, if you are going to work with raw fish you must buy sushi grade fish. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  8. Hypnotise?

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, he he he when I was younger I used to try self-hypnosis to try to remember something from my past but I would always wake up a few hours later... maybe I did hypnotize myself or maybe the relaxation just made me fall asleep. But I never remembered my dreams when I woke up. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  9. My Meeting With Southafrican Brothers

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, Is it ok to leave families behind for 4 months? fi aman Allah, Ameera
  10. Butter

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, there is nothing like a small pat of butter. I put a lil' bit of butter and strawberry jam on my toast. But I don't go overboard with it nor do I eat toast a whole lot. I also like to dip crab meat in butter too. Although I don't eat crab a lot either as I am too lazy to crack it open LOL on other sandwiches I like to use avocado or guacamole or mustard instead of butter or mayo. mayo... I love steamed veggies like broccoli , asparagus, or blanched tomatoes dipped in mayo mixed with soy sauce. Its a Japanese thing. Mmmm, there is also another dish where you fry some onions, tomatoes, diced chilies and a seafood mix and then put that in a baking dish with enough mayo to cover it and then top it with tobiko (flying fish roe) and broil until it is browned on top. But I think it may only be a dish in U.S. sushi restaurants... they don't serve it here in any Japanese restaurants in Australia. I haven't had it in like 8 months. but I don't eat it all the time either. If I think about what mayo is it grosses me out. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  11. Isbal: Wearing Your Garment Below The Ankles

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, the fatwa in this thread says: so we (sisters) are allowed to let our garments touch the ground. also, this hadith: Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu'minin: The slave-mother of Ibrahim ibn AbdurRahman ibn Awf asked Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him): I am a woman having a long border of clothe and I walk in filthy place; (then what should I do?). Umm Salamah replied: The Apostle of Allah ( peace be upon him) said: what comes after it cleanses it. (Abu Dawud, Book #1, Hadith #0383) also: Yahya related to me from Malik from Muhammad ibn Umara from Muhammad ibn Ibrahim that the mother of the son of Ibrahim ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Awf questioned Umm Salama, the wife of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said, "I am a woman who wears a long skirt and (sometimes) I walk in dirty places." Umm Salama replied, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'what follows (i.e. clean places) purifies it.' " (Muttawa, Book #2, Hadith #2.4.16) fi aman Allah, Ameera
  12. Ewwwwww We Got Robbed

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, oh, I am saying ewwww because I am totally creeped out that someone was inside while we were there!! We totally don't care about the stuff that was stolen...its an inconvenience, but they are just things.. but its the fact that they invaded our privacy. I also had a fan rigth next to me going full blast so that would have covered some noises too. Who knows though.. they could have come in while I was in the bathroom or something... I dunno. fi aman Allah, Ameera
  13. Ewwwwww We Got Robbed

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, first I have to say: Alhamdulillah noone was hurt!!! anyhoo... we were robbed this morning in our apartment!! And I think it happened while I was still awake on the computer!! only the screen door was closed and locked because it was a lil' hot but I was awake!! Around 5-530am I heard a noise like the screen door lock click and I turned around and looked there cuz it is right across the room behind me and didn't see anything. Then I went to check outside but I didn't see anything and the screen was still locked. I know we got robbed when I was still awake because later on I decided to quickly tidy up the living room before going to bed and I noticed my purse wasn't in the usual spot next to the couch but I didn't think anything of it. After I woke up I needed something from the purse and couldn't find it. Then my hubby thought to check the screen door and noticed it was cut with enough room for someone's fingers to get to the lock!! Then he looked for his wallet and it was gone... along with some of his watches. I called the US to cancel my bank card and stuff and then he called UAE to cancel his and they had already put a stop on it because there were 3 transactions where someone tried to take cash out around AU$150 each time and then successfully charged AU$3,000 somewhere with his bank VISA card. So now we are waiting to see what store it was used in. I wonder where that was that let them charge that much without checking I.D. or a signature!!! Maybe online???? Then I was thinking oh now I have to use my other purse from now and went to get it from the bedroom and it was gone!!!!!!!!!!!!! So they were in the bedroom while DH was sleeping!!! Alhamdulillah nothing happened to him!!! We looked at the bedroom screen door and they cut it too!! We aren't mad about the stuff but the fact someone was in our house while we were there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ewwwwww it just totally creeps me out!! Like I wonder if they were behind me in the living room while I was busy on the computer?????? Ewwwwww!! I am just happy Alhamdulillah noone got hurt... fi aman Allah, Ameera
  14. Honour Killings

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, how sad.. look at the lyrics of two poems or songs that Shafilea Ahmed wrote. The police found them while searching in her room for clues. ****************************** ** I Feel Trapped I feel trapped so stop I don't know what to do with this feeling It's mutual I don't know how to explain I'm trapped so trapped Now you know where I stand When I fall back I've got nowhere else to land I don't know how to say I'm trapped, so trapped I'm trapped with you It was my last year in school, So happy with my friends, I got loads to do But came this day when everything changed I came home it seemed like a normal day But something wasn't right I wish I coulda changed the event I shoulda killed myself instead I'd rather have been dead Coz now I have a burden on my chest And no it won't go away, the guilt, the pain When I look back on things I could have changed I could have stopped, prevented, exchanged But it had to turn out this way so trapped now I'm sitting on my window bay looking at the rain drowning sorrow and pain will this ever go away? I feel trapped, so trapped, I'm trapped I'm trapped, so trapped, I'm trapped I don't know what to do I feel trapped ****************************** ****** Happy Families I don't pretend like we're the perfect family no more Desire to live is burning My stomach is turning But they all think its about honour I was like a normal teenage kid Didn't ask too much I just wanted to fit in But my culture was different But my family ignored Now I'm sitting here playing happy families Still crying tears But no, we're a happy family I have these fears-- I wish, I wish, I wish for a happy family I lay in bed hoping the next day would be better It was just a thought because it never happened, no But I still dream of this today I wish my parents would be proud of what I've done Instead its "You've brought shame" or something else I don't want to hear this no more No No No ****************************** :D fi aman Allah, Ameera
  15. Do You/does Your Family Own A "family Business"?

    as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, my family used to own a Japanese restaurant for over 50 years. But the family decided that we would get along much better without working together so sold it about 5 years ago. I miss certain things about it but there was so much bickering and favoritism to certain family members etc... that it was getting to be too much. Plus out of all of us who are the 3rd generation-ers-- from when the restaurant opened-- none of us want to work there for the rest of our lives. Our restaurant was named "Akebono" meaning "dawn" --its still there but owned by someone else now. Our teriyaki and sushi was the most popular. One thing, though, my uncle still even after 5 years since it closed will not give me the family's teriyaki recipe!!! Only 3 members of my family know it and its not my father or mother!! I have to get it outa him some day!! It is so yummy!!! my father was the sushi chef there and I was so stupid--he kept telling me he would teach me how to make sushi (like how to slice the fish and stuff) and I didn't want to.. So now I still don't know!! But then again doing sushi at home is a hassle... I'd rather go to a restaurant. hee hee hee I remember one night I acted like I was leaving but I went and hid in the back room until the family all left and then I called my friends and they came and we cooked and stuff and spent the night in there!!! It was so fun :D I do miss the food!! fi aman Allah, Ameera
