Did you ever drink alcohol?
Anonymous

Once, before I was 21, I had a beer. After I turned 21, I drank on occasion. 

But, I always limited myself to one drink. Being inebriated, at all, is a sin in Christianity, so I never drank enough that I felt altered by any degree. I stopped drinking again before I became Muslim. Never really enjoyed the taste of alcohol.

Beer is nasty, don’t let anyone fool you, and alcohol in general makes things that would taste good otherwise, taste bad or off.

AND you can still get the cardiac benefits of red wine, from the non-alcoholic variant. So don’t let the world fool you into thinking the combination of alcohol and other things in wine is good for you. (A company called Al-Andalus, you can google them, sells a nice halal wine I use to cook, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.)

Let me take this opportunity to say if you’re a Muslim, or even a Christian, and you struggle with alcohol, that’s okay. Just do your best to improve. We all have our struggles, don’t let the judgement of people who would rather condemn you then support you, stop you from trying to improve.

The Prophet Muhammad was pretty good friends with a guy who not only drank, but was an alcoholic. That’s the sort of friend I aspire to be.

Husain Abdullah received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for praying on Monday. [Yahoo]

This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year. 

it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.

It only gains its value when it’s willfully given and humbly accepted.

Anything else is worthless. Anything else isn’t love.

Salaam alaikum! I'm afraid to ask people I know this question because it's quite personal and I don't want any pity. I heard there's no place for people in Jannah who sever ties with family members. What if your dad is an incestual pedophile? I really find it hard to talk to him again.

Wa salaam,

Take my opinion for what you may, but in my perspective, he was the one who severed a familial tie, not you.

Why don't you answer salam's ? No offense, just curious.

I do? Whenever I remember to anyway, but I don’t omit them on purpose.

Apologies if you said salaam to me and I didn’t respond to it.

What do you want to do with your life?

If you asked me this 4 months ago I would’ve simply said I want to be a doctor. But, that doesn’t seem to be enough for me anymore.

Medicine still interests me, being a doctor is still the goal, it’s just not the only goal anymore. I want to work with the United Nations and the World Health Organization. I want to apply any medical knowledge, I gain in the next few years, at a global scale, particularly in developing countries where health as a human right isn’t particularly practiced.

In the spring I gave a speech about how just because we’re young we shouldn’t wait to change the world. I talked to an auditorium about how I started a non-profit organization with my student loans, which was a sacrifice, but a dream come true. And I haven’t stopped there, right now I’m working on a mobile app that hopefully will change the way we maintain our health, provide our doctors with information they’ve never had about our lives before, and give people with limited resources a chance at keeping themselves healthy for longer.

I want to leave such a prodigious mark on this place, everyone else will believe they can leave one too.

God gave me ambition, and I do not intend on taking any of it back to Him.

You may be one of the greatest guys on the planet. Oh my Allah. I SO hope whatever woman you fall for matches that.
