Have the norms of society made marriage too difficult? Or have we mistaken culture with religion? Guest Contributor Fatima Moolla explores the subject of bridal showers.

Allah Ta'allah states in the glorious Qur'an:

" And among His signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves. So that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts. Undoubtedly in these are the signs for those who reflect."

Marriage is acknowledged to be the apparatus in life that brings families into existence. This is brought forth through the medium of two souls who have committed themselves to each other and are willing to sacrifice for one another. It is a time of joy and rejoicing, the biggest step that a human takes in life. It marks the start of a new voyage that reshapes your goals and ambitions of the future. read more

If someone vomits out food, water or bile, and it is a mouthful, Wudu will break. But if it is not a mouthful, Wudu will not break. "Mouthful" here means that the vomit cannot stay in the mouth except with difficulty. If a person vomits phlegm only, Wudu will not break irrespective of the amount and irrespective of whether it was a mouthful or not. If blood comes out in the vomit and it is thin and flowing, then Wudu will break irrespective of whether it is less or extra, and irrespective of whether it is a mouthful or not. But if the blood comes out in clots or bits and pieces, then Wudu will only break if it is a mouthful.

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face."

"Yes," the class said.

"Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?"

A little fellow shouted,
"Cause your feet ain't empty."
