    Wa alaikum asalaam wa rahmatullah

    The text from that link, in case anybody needs to read it carefully:

    The riddle was originally in Arabic and was then translated into English. Due to the many Arabic
    variations of it as well as differences that have come about due to translation, it is meaningless
    in English. When translated properly, it goes something like this: A 5 letter word, mentioned once
    in the Quran, beginning with "mim". It is whiter than ice (or brighter than the Sun) and darker
    than night. Men use it thrice a day, while women only use it once in a lifetime. It is haram to
    eat, yet halal to drink. The answer is Maqabir (Graveyards). Mentioned in surah "Takarthur" ie.
    "Hata Zurtum al-Maqabir" made up of 5 letters begins with "mim" If a persons actions are good it
    is brighter than the sun in the grave, while for an evil-doer it is darker than night. If the
    "whiter than ice" version is taken is could mean that the kafan is whiter than ice, then the grave
    is darker than night. Men visit it three times a day (ie. they bury the dead in it during three
    times viz. the periods between the three forbidden times) while women only visit the graveyard when
    they pass away. The meat of the dead cannot be consumed ie. backbiting him is forbidden. The part
    about drinking being halal doesn't seen to have been solved. People have mentioned different
    interpretations, yet all seem farfetched. It is a really silly riddle and has wasted valuable time
    of many of us.

    :salam:

    Wasted valuable time of many of us.... okay. The most curious part of the riddle I was wondering was how solid was haram and liquid was halal, and that seems to have no answer..
