    Salam,

    Though I have been a member here for awhile, I don't believe I posted an intro. So, um, hi! I'm 26 and from Australia. And make no mistake, I am female. Quite a few people seem to think I am a bro around here for some reason. I am a born Muslim with a Turkish heritage. Education wise, I have majors in criminology and politics. I also studied law for a couple of years but dropped out. That's about it, I think. The rest is boring.

    Actually, Astral, I myself somehow intuited that you are female, although I didn't think much about it until now. Perhaps that gives you cause for hope.

    I am a b-tech (electronics and communication) graduate from india, i was in touch with this forum earlier, may be 5-6 years back and now i am here, i have completed entry and professional level networking certifications and now looking ahead towards the expert level cert of cisco, pray for me ...


    Basically i am from a shia family both my father and mother are shia and but i am a muslim (la-shia la-sunni islamia-islamia) this was the famous phrase used by iranians during the islamic revolution, but as soon as i read quran i came to know that all verses which the shia associated with the ahlul-bayts(holy five) were manipulated and there is not a single verse in the quran which favours the ahlul-bayts of shia context (they say the panjetan is the ahlul-bayts and the wives are not which is completely wrong), but i do appreciate the islamic revolution of iran, and iran is the only one who speaks firmly from the palestinian side ...

    In the US, in response to a need for physiotherapists, there is a need for direct access, rather than referal based.

    So physical therapists are required now to get their doctorate (DPT) degree. The same thing is happening with Occupational therapists. Though DPTs and OTDs cannot prescribe meds afaik

    I used to be hadith rejector. After studying hadith at a surface level, I realized the large amount of nonsense dispelled by this forum and their top users. The exemptions are Al Boriqi, Nawawi, Lumumba and hlatif (who is no longer here). My advice, leave this forum. If you read anything of me rejecting hadith, know that it is nonsense and I no longer hold that view. Read my "Bio" for more info.

    The Prophet Muhammad (Salla Llahu alayhi wa alihi wa sallam) said, “Verily Allah does not take away knowledge by snatching it from the people but He takes away knowledge by taking away the scholars, so that when He leaves no learned person, people appoint ignorant as their leaders. They are asked to deliver religious verdicts and they deliver them without knowledge, they go astray, and lead others astray.” [Sahih al-Bukhari & Sahih Muslim]
