Al Humdulillah, I have started to understand much more Arabic than I ever have. Everyone was saying that I would need a teacher when it came to Lughah Arabiy Fus7a. I just stuck to my Medinah books and others and read as much as possible with a Qamoos(dictionary) in hand.
It is really a big Ni’mah indeed. I have a long way to go but I just thought that it was worth being happy about wal Humdulillah!
Asalamualaikum wr wb
Al humdulillah my wife had our 3rd child on July 9th. She was sick with a pretty bad case of Jondus but all is well now. We will be moving to the new aptnin a few days inshaAllah and I am scrambling to get all the things that I need to get done, done.
As far as IN, there are new projects that seem that they will do well. InshaAllah I hope you will all enjoy what is to come inshaAllah.
I was supposed to get kicked out of my apt but owner of the apt gave me some time to get another place. I will have you know that getting a place in Masr is like pulling teath. It is a complete run around. One minit this guy has an apt for rent, the next minit he doesn’t.
The crazy thing is, I find out that owner doesn’t need me to leave after I made an agreeent to move to ‘his’ other place(that costs more). Now I am being asked if I can find someone to move into this place now.
No, problem. I needed more space anyway, but it was really really stressful going around looking for places and having to move to a place that is more expensive than the one you were already in just to find out that you don’t have to leave after all. But now the deal is done and all is said. Allahu Musta’an.
I am just worried about how long it will take to get good internet set up when I do move. This is Egypt, it takes so long to get anything done.
I guess I can look at it this way, this new place is much bigger and next to some schools for the kids. Heh, schools. You don’t even want to know the prices for schools when a kid is not fluent in arabic. The English speaking schools are $$$$!
Oh yeah, and in all of this I am expecting my wife to have the baby(before the move). The 3rd child of our little pack…(don’t talk to me about how much it is for a clean hospital around here, but we got that handled a while ago wal humdulillah)
We are currently looking at putting all 3 Medinah Arabic Course books on the main site inshaAllah. We are also looking into an audio of the books mapped into the pages as well. this of course would take some time and we have yet to discuss how exactly we will do it. I figured I would let you all in on it so that we all have something to look forward to in the near future inshaAllah.
Asalamualaikum wr wb
For anyone who has or has not been paying attention to the main site might have noticed that the news was at a stand still for a bit(some have mentioned it). Al Humdulillah one will notice that the news will be updated daily 5 days a week along with articles, both original and from other sites.
Alot going on and alot being acomplished! Welcome to IN!
Many may wonder about the source of some of the articles on IN. Sometimes it is from our own researchers and sometimes from another website. I would like everyone to know that if there is an article that is good and according to the Quran and Sunnah I may upload it regardless of its source. So this means that IslamicNetwork does not always agree with the source in which an article came from.
So one may see that there is an article about fasting from a 'sufi' site or an article about kuffr from a 'takfeeri' site. This does not mean that the staff or anyone involved with IN is 'sufi' or 'takfeeri'.
I thought this was very important to point out so as to end any confusion.
There has been alot going on with those who are working on IN projects and I know that they are hard pressed for time to to answer questions about what is exactly going on behind that oh so cool logo.
Well I will try to give you an idea.
As for the browser, I know some people have gotten a bit impatiant due to the fact that it has taken a bit for its release. The issue is, not only do we want to launch 'some' things at the same time but we want to give you quality. We all have seen many half baked Islamic projects go down the drain due to the "lets just get it out there bugs and all" attitude. So remember that we are working on giving you the very best that we have to offer.
As far as other projects, I am not sure if I even have permission to talk about it. I can tell you this, there are plenty of cool things happening that look like they will be a hit once we launch them.
I hope to be able to speak further on this in the future inshaAllah. Till then asalamualaikum wr wb……
There have been a lot of brothers and sisters with questions about dreams and there interpretations. IN is looking into this so that you the visitor or member can get reliable and authentic interpretations. One should know that dream interpretation is not an exact science, so it should not be taken as the final word.
We are working on getting in touch with a sheikh that is known for his knowledge in the field of dream interpretation.
We are trying to get this done as soon as possible inshaAllah. May Allah(swt) reward you for your patience.
I wonder if the brothers and sisters on IN forums even know that the main site has up to 10 new articles a day 5 days a week? The reason I am wondering this is cause I have noticed that people will constantly make mention of other sites or link to them(not that it is wrong) cause they have "this" or "that" article, yet we have the same article on the main site.
So I feel it an obligation to let the good people on IN forums know that you don't have to travel so far, you can get what you need right here at home.
If you have a hard time flipping through the pages just use the search engine that we have and look for the author or name of the article. You can even put in the subject and possibly find what you need that way as well.
I hope that this helps in your quest in finding decent islamic articles on the net inshaAllah.
I came to Egypt and relized that it is not as cheap as some claim it is. None the less it was cheaper than most any country one could think of. One can see this when it comes to books. The books here are so cheap, and when I say cheap I mean cheap!
I have been going thrue my Medinah books as well as others and I am trying hard to learn arabic. Seeing that I have always been a lover of the books and writings of Sheikhul Islam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahab(r) I would start with his books. After getting a few I some what became obsessed and went on a rampage trying to buy anything and everything he or his grandsons wrote. Even if it is a book about him I have went out of my way to save mony to get it.
So far I have obtained:
Sharh Usool Athalatha, Al Qawai'id al Arba'a, Sharh Kashf Ashubuhat, Fath al Majeed Ma'l Qawlil Mufeed, Usool al Imaan, Al Usool Asitta, Sharh Masa'il Jahiliyyah, Nawaqid al Islam, Ma'nee at Taghut, Mufeedul Mustafeed, Kalimat at Tauhid, Tauhid al Ibada, Fadlul Islam, Sharh Aqidat al Imam al Mujadid, Adala'ilu Tauhid, Sharut as Salah, Al Kaba'ir, Majmoo'a Tauhid, Mukhtasr Sirata Rasul(saws), Mukhtasr Zaad al Ma'ad, Aduraru Suniyyah Fil Ajuuba an Najdiyyah
They were all rather cheap seeing that most are small in size all exept for Aduraru Sunniyyah Fil Ajuuba an Najdiyyah which is 16 vol.
The question is, am I Wahabbi?
