Khloe Kardashian With Niqab

11:53 PM that's me 0 Comments

Last Tuesday Khloe Kardashian shared a selfie she posted to Instagram  with her 22.9 million followers,  woring a niqab, a facial covering worn by Muslim women, alongside the caption "Habibi Love." The word "habibi" is an Arabic term meaning "my baby" or "my darling" and people got really angry about it, some criticized Kardashian for posing in the traditional garment. 


One important thing that's been left out so far, us tghat Khloe is in Dubai.

We must say: Sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian have also worn similar attire while in Dubai, despite the fact that it is not mandatory in the region, especially not for foreigners visiting the country.



With that in mind, you could argue that Khloe's merely adhering to the cultural mores of the country she's currently visiting. As one, more measured commenter noted on Khloe's Instagram, "She is being respectful as she is in Dubai... and we should just appreciate her respect." After all, you can't get angry at a celebrity for showing skin in a mosque, and then ALSO freak out when a different celebrity respectfully covers up.


So where do you side? Was Khloe out of line or is the Outrage Machine once again too riled up?

Perhaps we should stop criticizing and concerning about these people and begin to take care of our own actions, curiosity is great when used in good ways, this could (In sha allah) be that little step on knowing more about Islam for this young woman, we criticize if they are naked and also if they are covered in a MUSLIM COUNTRY what would you expect her to do?, wear lace?

Beauty Trends in the Middle East That Need to Die

By:
Khaoula Ghanem / Beauty Counter 

Tattooed eyebrows, drawing in your bottom lashes, blown-out perms—these are just some of the trends that we would all rather forget and write off as a momentary lapse of judgment. Unfortunately, there are a few beauty looks that seem to transcend the perpetual cycle of fads. We’ve rounded up the worst  beauty trends in the Middle East that need to die, now.


Costume Makeup

You shouldn’t look like you’ve just come back from your wedding when you’re at the beach. Contouring, false eyelashes, and dark lips should be saved for a night out or a special occasion. Keep your daily look minimal and simple and replace the foundation with a CC cream, contour with blush, and swap the dark lip colors for a tinted lip balm.

Colored Contacts

Colored eyes are not only pretty, they also have the ability to enhance your overall look—just not when they are so obviously fake. 


Brassy Blond Hair

Arab women are known for having beautiful, thick, raven hair; so it’s always disappointing when they decide to go down the lighter route and even more so when their hair turns orange instead of blond. 



Overly Drawn Eyebrows

What is worse than overly plucked eyebrows? Overly drawn eyebrows. Ladies, please keep the pencil on your natural brow line—better yet, drop the pencil altogether. Instead, opt for a wax-based eyebrow filler


Bad Lip Fillers

We blame Kylie Jenner for this one. A plump pout is sultry and sexy—a bad lip job is not. Your lips should not look like they’re bee-stung. Ditch the excessive Botox and try these makeup tricks to achieve a fuller lip.

Extreme Photoshop 
Exaggerated use of Photoshop that we can't even recognize a person, here an example, Egyptian Actress Ghada Abdel Razek (49), do you notice something, let's do a check list with our previous trends



Very natural look √


                                                          Photoshop , where are where spots?           

    Again Photoshop, but this time you  can see her spots 

-Custom makeup √
-Colored contacts √
-Overlay Drawn Eyebrows √
-Lip Fillers √
yes, she just missed the Brassy blond hair!, worst part is, she is not the only one, it seems that ALL!!!  Egyptian and Arab actresses are doing exactly the same, in no way even if all this people are doing it, we can and we should not follow this "trend", the normal people who live by a honest work and appreciate what Allah have given us since that is what make us unique.

Dancing: What Is Allowed and What Is Not?

9:37 PM that's me 0 Comments


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
Islam is a religion of moderation and does not approve of either extremism or negligence. It does not prevent people from having entertainment; however, it provides the rules that regulate this entertainment. At the same time, Islam does not tolerate any kind of entertainment that contains haram (unlawful) or even leads to haram behavior.

Dancing can be either between women, between men, or mixed between both sexes. It is allowed for women to dance together unless it involves revealing any of the woman’s `awrah – that is, the parts of the body between the navel and the knee – in front of other women. It is also allowed unless the dancing means that mandatory obligations will not be carried out or if it coincides with unlawful acts.
In this regard, Dr. Su’ad Salih, professor of Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) at Al-Azhar University , states,Islam is a religion of moderation; it does not prevent singing and dancing, but it forbids anything that stimulates people’s desires, whether it be among men or women. Women are supposed to observe good manners if they dance in front of other women. They should not exceed the limits by doing anything that stimulates desires and incites evil. There are many cases where women are tempted by other women.

However, if a woman dances in front of her husband, then there is no restriction, as it is a way of cementing relations between spouses – and this a key pillar of establishing the Muslim family.
Moreover, Dr. Salim Ahmad Salamah, Dean of the Faculty of Usul Ad-Deen at the Islamic University, Gaza , adds,It is permissible for women to dance and sing as long as there are no males around. In addition, the words of the song should be free from any foul words or vulgarity. Thus, as long as the words of the song are pure and clean and there are no males, there is nothing wrong in dancing.

By analogy, men are allowed to dance together as long as they cover their `awrah (the parts of the body between the navel and the knee) and there is no fear of temptation.

Men and women dancing together is absolutely haram in all cases, except when a wife dances in front of her husband. The reason behind this prohibition is that with mixed dancing bodily contact is close and improper sexual desires are aroused. This has been strictly forbidden by Islam in an attempt to block the way against evil. If men and women were permitted to dance together, a lot of haram acts could occur. That is why mixed dancing is not allowed.

Allah Almighty knows best.

Botox-An Islamic Ruling

5:48 PM that's me 0 Comments


 by the Research Committee of IslamToday




Botox is used to remove the signs of aging, the effects that aging has upon the skin. The treatment is widely used around the world – including the Muslim world – to remove wrinkles from the skin. 

Muslims have expressed reservations about using Botox, because an enzyme derived from pig's milk is used in its manufacture.

This brings up the concern of whether Botox is a pre or impure substance. If it proves to be an impure substance, then its medicinal use would be restricted to cases of medical need, and it would not be allowed for mere cosmetic treatments. 

Botox is a trade name for a protein called botulinum toxin which is produced naturally by the baterium Clostridium. It is not, therefore of porcine origin. It is not a pork bi-product. It is not derived from pig's milk. 

However, an enzyme taken from pig's milk is introduced a culture of Clostridium in order to stimulate the production of the protein.

Janet Kettels, a spokesman for Allergan, which manufactures the product, describes the process as follows:
The manufacturing process includes growing of bacterium using a culture containing an enzyme derived from pig's milk. A specialized purification process removes the pig-derived enzyme and produces a purified medical protein called botulinum toxin, which is an active ingredient in Botox.
She asserts that the final version of the product does not contain any pig-derived enzymes.

There are two aspects of Islamic purity law that we should like to consider. One is that of transformation and the other is that of the ruling of an otherwise lawful animal or plant that is fed on impure substances.

Transformation
Transformation of a substance (istihâlah) can affect the substance's ruling with respect to purity.

Transformation of an impure substance occurs when it loses its physical properties or its namesake is removed. Such transformation can be achieved by increasing quantity of other substances, or by exposure to the sun or air, or by chemical processes, which is the most effective factor these days.

Scholars give a number of examples for this: impurity can be removed and impure items could be transformed into pure ones just as alcohol becomes pure when it is changed into vinegar, or just as impure substances become pure when they are incinerated and turn into ashes, or just as the body of a dog or pig becomes pure if it falls into a salt spring and become as salt itself.

If we consider what takes place between the enzyme taken from the pig's milk and the botulinum toxin that results from a complex biochemical process using bacteria, we can see that the divergence is far more radical that what the scholars were talking about when they discussed the process of transformation.

This conclusion is even more emphatic when we consider that the enzyme is completely removed once the desired chemical is produced. The botulinum toxin is not merely a transformed substance. It is a completely independent substance that does not incorporate in itself anything of the enzyme that was used to stimulate its production.

Jallâlah (what is fed on impurities)
Animals that are fed on impure substances – referred to in Islamic Law as jallâlah – are a matter of disagreement among Islamic scholars. Some scholars consider such animals and their milk to be unlawful for human consumption if the majority of their fodder is impure. According to this opinion, if more than 50 % of an animal’s fodder is from dead meat, blood, or other impure substances, then its meat and milk is prohibited. If 50 % or less of its feed comes from impure substances, then its meat and milk will be lawful.

Other scholars hold the view that the meat and milk of such animals will not be prohibited unless the impurity noticeably affects the taste or smell of the animal’s meat or its milk.

There is also the question of using impure substances as fertilizer to grow crops. The position of the majority of scholars is that the produce does not become unlawful or impure on account of that. The produce only becomes impure if the effects of the impurity are discernable in the fruit and grain itself. This is based on the principle that the impurities have been transformed and the produce should not be considered impure.

The Hanbalî school of thought differs on this matter, though Sheikh al-`Uthaymîn, a leading Hanbalî scholar of our times, is of the view that the opinion of the majority should be adopted. He writes:
The well-known position in the Hanbalî school of law is that fruits and produce that had been watered or fertilized with impurities are unlawful until they are watered with pure water and the essence of the impurities are removed. On this basis, it would impermissible to use such water or fertilizer at the time when the fruits are present, since it would lead to the produce becoming impure and unlawful.

However, the position of the majority of scholars is that the produce does not become unlawful or impure on account of that. The produce only becomes impure if the effects of the impurity are discernible in the fruit and grain itself. This is the correct view. Generally, the impurities are transformed and no effects of them are to be found in the fruit and grain.
Furthermore, what we are dealing with in the process of manufacturing Botox is far less serious than proper nourishment, since the bacterium is not being nourished on pig's milk at all. The process merely introduces an enzyme derived from pig's milk to stimulate the production of the botulinum toxin.

An enzyme is a chemical that catalyzes a biochemical reaction. It is not incorporated into the resulting substance. It is not absorbed by it in the way that food is constituted into a living body. In the making of Botox, once the bacteria produce the desired chemical, the enzyme – as well as the bacteria culture itself – is completely removed. 

Therefore, we conclude that Botox should not be regarded as an impure substance. The impurities that are possibly introduced into the process of manufacturing Botox are not present in the final product. Moreover, that product in no way resembles the possibly impure substance that was used in its manufacture.

We see no reason for prohibiting the use of Botox to remove the signs of aging as long as using the substance is safe and poses no threats to a person's health. 

And Allah knows best.
