    What does Islam say about depression

    Depression is a reflection of low serotonin levels. Serotonin levels will not drop because you have weakened your connection to Allah. It is very important that we make a distinction between feeling sad and lonely, and suffering from clinical depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc. These are...

    News Son of Dubai Ruler, dies of heart attack.

    This man was a philanderer and playboy. He flaunted his wealth in the most shameful manner possible. The royal family did everything they could to keep his name off the Internet and out of the news because he was such a disgrace. His father removed him from the line of succession a few years...

    In this time of humanitarian crisis, it serves no purpose to engage in a debate or discussion about whether the Syrian war should have happened. I wrote this post to find out what other Muslim communities are doing to help. For example, a few families I know are trying to sponsor some of these...

    Cousin relationship?

    No you don't have to ignore her! She's your cousin sister, a member of your family. Islamically you cannot be alone with her. Presumably when you see her your mutual elder relatives are present? If so, you are allowed to talk to her.

    to whom does a single childless woman leave her wealth? Assume her parents die before her. She has older brothers. Does she have to leave everything to her brothers? They will be getting the bulk of the parents inheritance. Is she allowed to leave it to anyone she wants?

    You can be modest without covering your face. its not part of European culture to hide your face, people get scared. But, why not move to a muslim country where it won't even be an issue?

    has anyone read books by jean sassoon?

    I have read her novels, many years ago, mostly out of curiosity and boredom. Mildly entertaining chick lit at best (I'm assuming you are a girl, as I can't figure out why a man would read these). Not worth your time!

    Dentistry as a profession for women?
