Weird addendum: what if I don't want to marry and stay single by choice? The only thing that is appealing about marriage for me is that (from a faith perspective) it provides opportunity to have one's own kids. Since that option is not on the table for a single person, I am wondering if adoption would make sense.

Thank you PM1 for saying what you said…all of it. I couldn’t agree more

OP curious are you male or female

And why adopt now ?

If you are female and ok to speak to a 40 yr old guy who is ready to get married - hit me up, am dead serious

Best to reach out to your local scholar or a scholar that you value his/her opinion. To be honest, it's a noble thought to adopt a kid.

I do not see why not. I have thought about it myself.

I don’t see why islamically this would be issue but would confirm with imam

Like raising the child of a poor relative or something? Ask an imam, there are some intricacies. You can’t change their name, and there are considerations when it comes to inheritance rights and mahram relations.

+1 to this. I know there's some specific intricacies involved with adopting. But if you learn would love it if you could share!

Yes we certainly can, given you’re capable to providing for the child sufficiently.

Help!! My bestfriend is doing two months abroad and was trying to fly into turkey when they told her she couldn't because her passport expired within three months.

She went to the US Embassay in Athens knowing she had a month left of traveling, and gave her an emergency passport and punched holes in her exsisting one. Now no country will let her in with her emergency passport.

Can her mom get her a passport in the US and ship it to her? Is there anyway around this?

Thank you!!

We started back in August in distance learning mode, core subjects only. So no STEM classes. One of our 8th grade teachers was out on maternity leave, so I was asked to take that spot for the first semester. I was a long time 5th grade teacher, so not a difficult adjustment, except for learning new to me digital curriculum.

I have 2 STEM classes for the second quarter. Still online, so my focus is on coding.

Wondering what other STEM teachers are doing online?
