  • What career should I look into?

    I haven AA in Criminal Justice and I am almost done with my BA in Philosophy. I currently workas a Fire and Casualty Insurance Broker, but I am BORED and I need to find a career path.

    I like problem solving, critical thinking and working with people. I HATE SALES jobs. I need something that is always changing as well, I get bored easily. I don't know what to do. I got this random idea the other day to study Engineering ha ha. I need to settle down into a career. Any ideas?

  • Seller's Permit/Business License?

I know I need a ellers permit to do this in California, but I wanted to find out if I am required to obtain a business license first or can I just get the sellers permit. Thanks!

  • What is the Islamic perspective on life insurance?

    Salaam everyone,

    I have a quick question. Ok so I work in the insurance industry and the other day I added life insurance coverage to one of my client's auto policy. When I explained it to him he said he doesn't want it because life insurance is haraam and for me to please remove it. Me being the sweet person that I am, I include it in many of my customers policies because it's like $1.30 for six months and they get like $25,000 worth of coverage.

    Anyways, I felt bad that I added it to his policy like I should have known not to put it on there. But I guess what I am getting at is what is the Islamic perspective on life insurance. As a Muslima, should I not have life insurance as well. I asked a sheikh but his answer was very vague on the insurance issue, so I am seeking your guidance brothers and sisters. Thanks in advance!

  • To non-Christians and non-Jews?

    How would you feel about your child being taught Christmas and Hanukkah songs to perform in the school "holiday" concert?

    My daughter's public school teaches them these songs and they are supposed to perform them at a concert. We're going out of town before the concert anyways so she wont perform. I was just wondering about all the students and parents, like myself, who don't celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah and how this makes them feel. Any thoughts?

  • American/Egyptian Marriage in Egypt?

    Ok so I have been reading about American/Egyptian marriages in Egypt and I want to know if anyone has gotten married recently or know of anyone who has and has had it recognized by the Ministry of Justice, so that it will be a valid marriage in the U.S. I know that a "statement of no objection" must be obtained from the U.S. Embassy, and another document from the U.S. Dept of State to confirm the dissolution of any previous marriages, but I heard the Egyptian government is not accepting these documents. :( Any advice? I don't want to get all the way to Egypt and not be able to have my marriage recognized in the U.S. Thanks!

  • Moving to Egypt with a 6 year old child?

    Salam! I am thinking about studying abroad in Egypt for a year and I have a 6 year old, English speaking daughter. What are her options are far as attending school. Obviously I know she needs to learn Arabic, which she is already exposed to, but will she be able to attend school? Are there any schools for children who are non-Arabic speaking that will help ease her into it? I can't pull her out of school for a year, what are my options?

  • Muslim reverts.....?

    How has Islam or being Muslim changed your life? I know it has greatly impacted my life in so many ways from giving me an extra boost of self-confidence and courage to appreciating and looking forward to waking up each morning before the sun rises and being thankful for a new day. What about you?

  • Christians....Do you only worship God?

    Do any of you ONLY worship God and not Jesus or anyone else? I ask this because when I was "Christian", I only worshiped and prayed to God--not Jesus, not Mary or anyone else. I'm just wondering if I'm the only one out there that did that. I don't even think I can say I WAS Christian, since Christians worship Jesus. Hmm....

    BTW I'm Muslim now, I solved that problem now.

  • Hindus and prayer?

    I saw this answer posted on another question regarding drinking milk from cows: "yes we are allowed to drink cow milk. it's not considered part of cow's body as in meat or non veg. the cow's compared to a mother who provides milk to toddlers. And that's why you'll see us pray to cows".

    Do Hindus pray to cows and what is the significance of praying to a cow?

    What are Hindu beliefs about God?

  • Christians...is the Trinity 1 in 3 or 3 in 1?

    Explain your answer. If you say that the Trinity is 1 in 3, wouldn't that suggest there are 3 gods (polytheism). If you answer 3 in 1, are all three parts equal?

  • All religions: What is your understanding about Jesus?

    I see so many religious groups going around and around in circles about Jesus. I would like a cross-religious interpretation of Jesus. What does your religion teach about Jesus, his life, his teachings, his return to earth or anything else you want to throw in. Please state your religion. Thanks!

    Please star this question, I would like to hear lots of thoughts and opinions.

  • R&S religion slammers, why do you erase your answers?

    Why do people come on here talking a bunch of trash about other people's religion, and when people respond and correct their erroneous statements, they jump up and delete them? I have seen this numerous times where people talk a bunch of garbage about Islam, and other beliefs, based on ignorance and prejudice, but when we come back with our responses to their statements, all of a sudden the controversial one disappears? Why don't you just leave it there for all to see? Were you not strong in your belief? Did we enlighten you or make you feel dumb?

    Anyone is free to answer about why this occurs. Thanks!
