    Will Egypt Lose Their Ancient Treasures Again???

    Remember Face

    Wa alaykum salam, I do not think it is a loss of face to show emotional pain. It is normal for people to feel hurt when things in life go bad. However, when this happens, it matters less about how strong of a physical person you are and more about your faith in Allah. When you have strong...

    Having Settbacks......

    :wasalam: I distinctly remember reading the posts that you made in the past because you are from New Jersey like myself. I am now 19 and as a student I could relate to some of the issues that you spoke of. I am glad to see that you are in an Islamic school now and I hope that it is benefiting...

    Ask an atheist anything.

    :salam2: Usually I won't involve myself in discussions like these ones because it's like two rocks pushing up against each other. Neither is going to budge.

    Whats changed in me?

    Asalamu alaykum, I reverted almost three years ago and as I was reading your post I felt as if you said what has been on my mind. I feel the same way you do. Where I live in the US it's practically impossible to gain any real information about Islam except through the internet, and I feel as...

    I need to PM someone who is knowledgeable in the Quran

    :salam2: Why would you even suggest that a person is lazy? Do you know them personally? Do you know if they even live within walking distance of a masjid? You do not know any of the circumstances and yet you let out a comment like that. If you want to make a suggestion like, "try to go to...

    The Bermuda triangle in Islam. Do Muslims believe this?

    :salam2: I remember seeing a tv program a while back where they made a theory that in the bermuda triangle there are large pockets of gas in the seabed that when released are sometimes big enough to overtip a ship if they surface right below the ship, and the same gas when it goes into the...

    What is the Most Beneficial thing to Hang on your wall?

    :salam2: I have given this thought before and insha'allah I would like to find a poster of a dug grave that is empty, i.e. just the hole. It would serve as a reminder insha'allah and I hope that it does not go into the territory of bid'ah. "The Muslim should not keep any pictures of...

    Saying "al hamdulilah"

    :salam2: I have a question. When I go to the masjid I sometimes see brothers that I recognize and I will greet them with salaam, and then ask how they are doing. Many people just say "alhamdulilah" and nothing else. I grew up non muslim and usually when we ask how someone is, we expect...
