    Dua while driving/travelling

    Not questioning who you supplicate to sister, just reminding you that Allah answers you, since you asked the question if He will respond. Why do you fear that the answer is "no" when you have no knowledge of the answer or the ability to hear it? Human company does not equate to care. If I am...

    Why did you become Muslim ? (post your answer)

    I was born into it, but I never really read the Quran in its translations. Have read/recite it in whole in Arabic but I didn't know what it meant. I could have lived the rest of my life in ignorance and not knowing its contents. When I committed myself to reading the translations I had mixed...

    Muslim woman committed suicide

    I apologize for being unclear. I wasn't establishing anything, just pointing out that people who want to kill themselves, especially in this case the person having problems because she's not living a pious life, forgets that Allah is Merciful. And yes, the surat regarding Moses (alayhi salam)...

    I've lived in USA for 15+ years and I must say the community experienced in USA masjids are wonderful. I meet new brothers, and my wife enjoy being on the sisters side as well. I developed a sense of attachment to it, I am abroad now, and I very much miss it :(
