    commented on 's reply to Begairats
    Han, it's about time that Begairats got their own thread. Dair aaye, daroost aaye.

    Every time I see the word begairats here, I feel a hansi bubbling up within me. It's as if begairats is a subspecies of men. Like you have men...and then you have the begairats.

    I won't write you an essay but I will say that I don't keep track of the educational credentials of contemporary Islamic speakers. The speakers are still more knowledgeable than any of us on this forum. And knowledge is not isolated. For example, someone who was a student of Quranic studies may have...

    He went to your place of residence in the hopes that he would find you there and have a chance to speak with you in person since you weren't responding to his texts. Let your landlady and her son know that he is not welcome at all. If it happens again, you may have to call authorities.

    ^Lol. Someone who'll drive 2 hours to get some fried halal chicken when she could just as easily get non-halal from local places....is likely to be big on halal.

    Islam does not condone rape or molestation or oppression of women. The problem with you is that you associate these actions with Islam and you turn a blind eye to all the numerous maxims in Islam (found in the ahadith) as well references from the Quran that emphasize mercy and kindness and justice....

    ^ I can top that, Hoverer.

    I didn't have mac n cheese until....oh....maybe a few years ago. Growing up we never ate it at home and I always avoided it cuz the sight of squiggly pasta swimming around in orangey gloop weirded me out. I'm still not that bowled over by it. However, the Amy's...

    I don't want to surround myself with too many Desis, but I miss the ethnic diversity in states like NY that we sorely lack where I live. When I go up there to visit my sister, sometimes I wish I lived there (minus the weather and the crazy driving). I imagine taking my sweet time visiting all those...

    commented on 's reply to Optimistic or practical
    I analyze things a lot and I have to consider the worst case scenario. I sometimes get annoyed with people who are very, very optimistic to the point of being naive....or to where they can't consider flip-side possibilities.

    The video that I have included above is not for Bob. He has a diseased heart and to anyone with an iota of sense, it should be very apparent that he is trying his level best to lead astray. He has to remind us constantly that he is such...

    Agree with Obama. From what I've seen most guys don't surrender to a parent's choice if they're not interested...not even the more obedient ones. In fact I have seen mothers proudly tell others that their son will defo marry someone of their own choosing only to find themselves rudely awakened, lol...

    Islam emphasizes modesty for both genders in their physical appearance, in their gaze, in their speech/language, in the consumption of food, in their purchases/living, in their interactions with members of the same and opposite gender. Whether or not someone chooses to implement modesty in their lives...

    I was annoyed by the character of Momina. She was good hearted, but really irksome in the way that she spoke, etc. Khayam Sarhadi kept calling her Masooma and I believe the author intended that mistake as she has a masoom/bholi personality. But there are things you can learn from her scenes as well....

    I don't deny that abuse exists in the Desi community. But how come you never quote examples of abusive WHITE husbands and fathers? Have you never heard or read about them? Such examples feature in the media often enough. Or do you change the channel and stick roohi in your ears? Majority of my students...

    Yes, there was a time when newscasters would wear dupatta. But over time that dupatta was pushed further and further and further away, revealing more and more and more of the newscaster's zulfain...and then a day came when the dupatta was restricted to just the shoulders.

    Several months...

    Yes, women can lead independent lives. But the desire for protection and comfort and companionship are all very natural as well. And so there is nothing shameful in a woman having/wanting the protection of a father or a husband. Neither is it shameful for a man to want the nurturing comfort of a...

    What do you think happens, Life? You already know the answer (possibilities) to this:

    a) Stick it out in the marriage and make the best of it. Be a loyal martyr.

    b) Start looking around elsewhere....
