Yup - absolutely condemn it too! Islam teaches us patience and tolerance - and not such heinous acts!


Absolutely condemn it

Ours is a religion of peace ☪️


I do not condone violence. I’ve read articles about his controversial book but their explanation of what exactly was controversial is simplistic. Can anyone explain/point me to an article that explains the controversy well?

Hate the guy, think the attack was dumb and not a good representation of Islam. However the protective zeal of Islam and our prophet is what makes this religion great and different. Certain things we will not tolerate and disrespect to Allah or the prophet is ond of them.

Can anyone Emmes provide me with interview tips for this role - Questions to expect, best ways to answer them, any tips to ensure I ace this interview I've been chasing.


Good Morning. I am searching for either a career pivot or a move that allows me to utilize my skills more proactively. I'm at a stand still currently, and feeling unmotivated. Having been in sales, most of my career, I'm unafraid of new settings, people and objectives.

A little background on myself: I've worked retail in sales and logistics, then moved up to contractor sales and now onto rental inside sales. The newest venture seemed great, until it wasn't.

Any advice on some pivots/moves?

How does one evaluate sexual chemistry/ compatibility in halal dating.

Been getting very serious with someone over the last 8-10 months but I am worried that I don’t feel any sexual attraction to her. For the married people — does this solve for itself once married? is this something to worry about?

We are very keen on keeping things VERYYY halal, and I LOVVVE talking to her but idk if I have friend zoned her.
This is my first time dating someone the halal-way so any guidance is great.

There’s no excuse that by the age of 25 you have never tried therapy. I’m speaking directly to the demographic in this group who I’m sure over 95% of people in here are earning 6 figures. Key word: TRY. I understand it’s not for everyone but to have never even attempted seeking therapy is a injustice to yourself and the people around you.
