  1. Kamal el Makki has some good stuff on Da'wah: Another lecture that had an effect on me with regards to Dawah is this: Like r-z said, Tawheed because you cant really argue with it, always bring the convo back to Tawheed. Everything else is secondary. Why do men get more wives, why do women inherit less, why do you guys have jihad, why is homosexuality a sin, why do women have to wear hijaab....well I can understand why some of these concept may seem strange to you, but perhaps a more pertinent question is who decides what is right and wrong, and for us Muslims that is Allah, do you want to know why we believe in Allah, well because blah blah blah... If he really fancies reading stuff, you should give him a Quran to read. I found that the Sahih International translation works well with non Muslims... Try and always bring the convo back to three things, Tawheed, Day of Judgement (we are all gonna die one day) and Muhammad (S)... All the best...
  2. Lord of the Worlds is the same as an Al Maghrib class called Light of Guidance, which you can buy on CD...
  3. I saw a hindu guy opposite me on the tube the other day, I thought he was sleeping. But then I realised he was on standby... Oh and my little cousin asked his dad the other day: Am I going to marry a Muslim girl or a Haraam girl?
  4. Friend: Why do you guys keep a bottle in the toilet at uni? Muslim Friend: Well, theres a lotta reasons..
  5. ^Is that a pun? If it isnt, then no, I also post in small red English letter boxes...
  6. Friend: What does your dad do? Me: He's a builder... Friend: That's a very constructive use of his time isnt it... Me: Very clever.. *a little later* Friend: So hows your son with the building trade O TEH's dad? Dad: Well he tries.. Friend: What? Your patience? Me: Damn, youre on fire..
  7. Brother: Can you pass me that book please.. Me: *passes book* Brother: Jazakallah for caring Me: What? Brother: Jazakallah fKhairan Me: You didnt say that.. Brother: Yeah I did, Jazakallah for caring... Me:
  8. Sweet blood? Was your doc having a laugh or being serious? If he was being serious, you need a new doctor... And there plenty of wives in Egypt, and sisters and mothers to get along with, Brother Noor has all the contacts. But be careful, having too many friends can be very detrimental to your studying sadly... :I My humble self would only like to advise two things: Throw away your laptop (if you have time to be on it, you have time to be studying other stuff (if you need to relax, do it some other way)) and secondly, in swissary alif, there is a malaysian restaurant on a corner, you should find it, and get Nasi Goreng Paprik lahm wa dagaag... Have fun studying.. P.S. There may be a cockroach or two in the food, but it all adds to the flavour, so dont worry.. (Im joking)
  9. Another paki one... Punjabi guys goes for an interview at a British University, because he wants to study English... Interviewer: So what is the opposite of ugly? Punjabi guy: Pichli If you get that straight away, then Masha Allah, well done, seriously, its a hard one...
  10. Like the fact that Allah is in the heavens and that Iman increases and decreases...duh.. I kid, Im sure they mean basic aqeedah, regarding Allah, his angels, DoJ, his messengers, Qadr and so on and so forth... What Im finding interesting as Im growing up is that although people my age want their kids to be the next Abu Hanifah or Imam Ahmad, they dont really live by it themselves, furthmore, they dont intend to marry someone who wants the same thing, so Im thinking, do they really want it... I heard the funniest thing the other day, listen to this vid from 6:30, when he mentions a certain 'profession' I LMAOd..
  11. This is quite possibly one of the best articles I have ever read, may Allah reward the sister who wrote it with Super pious kids.. http://muslimmatters.org/2010/02/25/raising-children-with-deen-and-dunya/
  12. I thought Siraaj's articles on the issue were very beneficial...good luck... http://muslimbestlife.com/blog/?p=175
  13. When you start praying your Salaat shortened, it means you are travelling...
  14. He is a big fan of maniac muslim... He even has a Your Mum... shirt.. And of course his work with iera is fantastic...
  15. This guy reminds me of a violin for some reason... :I http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0Gr-bqUrRo&feature=related
  16. Thankfully, we get left alone with the patient, we have about 30 min to do a full history and examination, and then diagnose what we think the problem is. Because everything so far has been in the hospital, I've never really been left alone with a female patient, ever, al hamdulillah..
  17. Thats a very good question. Why dont you find out for us.. Having a look at this: http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/45917/woman%20living%20alone I guess they can then. I always thought that the ruling of the whole travelling extended to the living alone part aswell, but there you have it. So I guess the issue here isnt the living away from home part as it is travelling without the mahram part, to your uni or whatever.. Oh and Teacake, you read it wrong. I love women just as much as the next bloke, and Im sure they can do good all by themselves. And yes, the tamil thing was a witty racist comment, and I apologise if it caused offence...
  18. Haha, I had an internal exam the other day. Part of it was a full body examination, and percussing the upper border of the liver was part of it. I made a judgement call and decided the liver was fine...so I didnt need to check it...just like that... On a more serious note, with most specialisations in Med (well in the UK and more specifically GP), you can become a GP in a part time program, allowing you to spend more time at home. It just takes double the time I guess. You also have to have a valid reason though, so spending time with the family doesnt really count I think...
  19. I think because he was walking behind, but then he saw part of her leg, so he decided to walk in front. But please note the I think.
  20. He walked ahead and he got them to chuck stones as to show him the direction...
  21. Firslty, I couldnt study what I wanted to study at home. Secondly, it isnt impermissable for me, as a guy, to travel where ever I want to study. Thirdly, indulging in sin...is sinful, so was getting burnt a fair price for my education? I dont really bring the two together. Perhaps another question is dont you think you should have stayed at home, and by doing that you wouldnt have fallen into sin? Well yeah, but it may have happened at home. They were sins, and may Allah forgive me for them. I guess for a girl on the other hand, she'd be sinful just for the fact she is there without a mahram...according to the majority. We arent here to discuss the 'illah or the reason as to why the ruling was given. Are you saying it is because of safety? Well what if my mahram doesnt have any legs? How is he going to protect me? Does this mean he doesnt count? No, of course he counts. In the end, it comes down to the fact that Muhmammad (S) said so. It isnt about sin either, that girls are more likely to fall into sin or something like that, you could be doing a halaqah every night in this place that you have travelled to, but then, if you didnt have a mahram, youd still be going against the majority...
  22. Was it worth it? I dont think I understand the question... If you have to pick between leaving home to study (as a girl), and staying at home and not study at all secularly...well its like picking between haraam and halaal.. It isnt ever that simple though, and it isnt like you cant study from home anyway...
