Dream unfortunately I am now 22. WOE! Just kidding, growing up is interesting. Congrats on med school.

I wonder about zilla too! :monkey: And I wonder how a few of the others are, like boy, MuslimEssence, HijabiAblazin, chowchilla (is that what his name was?), etc


Chowchilla's blog is still kinda active.. He's in med school as well
boy just got married, didn't he? He's also probably in his final year of law school now
Farimama is married and has a baby mA
zakk knows MuslimEssence I think, and shes also married and has a kid

What else? Man what's up with nisa? And samar and all those oldies? I think Fari must still be friends w/ them, we should ask her!

Welcome back.

I'm more of a "youngster" Islamican, both in the way that I'm new, and a whole lot younger than most people here. But I'm still cool! Honest!

as salaamu alaikum,



hah! dude, the hair is how i still remember you. hey speaking of canadians and hair, have you heard from DJQ lately?


I met DJQ at RIS; he seems to be doing good. I didn't get a chance to talk to him that much as he was pretty busy volunteering. We compared his fro to my beard. I think we're evenly matched.

sup Dream, welcome back.
Life is given in order to worship, life without worship is shameful.

Indeed, after " Allah adorns mankind with this verse:

And we have perferred them over many others" (17:70)

..in reward of worship, we recive honor and respect

"he who is the lover of beauty of Allah Is the leader of all creation"


w/ the darkness w/in, i still fight for the light. Raising my hands in this plight

dream - mA that's great about med school :thumbup:
now allllllll the pretty girls will be coming to your house.

my kids aren't old enough to be on the islamica forums just yet, lol

remember when we used to post abrar-ul-haq songs and talk about pakistan's future?
the good ol' days....
The word As-shams (the sun) is feminine, and Qamar (moon) is masculine. The sun burns itself to give light and life to everything around, and the moon is Muneer, meaning it reflects the light; it radiates the brilliance of the sun.
So when we shine as men, the implication is that we are reflecting the glorious light of our women.
- Sheikh Abdullah Adhami

i would have still been a nutter otherwise, not that im completely sane now but i guess i have grown up :thumbup: im just readin a lot of posts thinking astaghfirullah :o


Since Islamica was created till now, people have always been complaining about how much it sucks and looking back nostalgically at some supposed golden age. It's like how the conservatives--Glenn Beck, Hannity, Orielly, etc.--always talk about how America was so much better back in the day...

And now he is an uber-liberal progressive type. You missed out many stages in between, so you have much to catch up on. Welcome.

The time will never be ‘just right’.
Start where you stand, work with whatever tools you may have at your command,
and better tools will be found as you go along.

umm, no.

i became salafi for aqidah reasons, namely the issue of tawhid (istighata in particular, shrines/graves, etc.) and the question of where is Allah [swt]...it had nothing to do with praying sunnah or nafl, which most salafis do pray.

i still agree with the salafis on these aqidah issues...i'm just a modernist on so many issues that it becomes difficult to place me in the same bin as salafis.
