                    salam alaikum, well everything is from Allah but I would not use Subhanallah in that sentence.
I would say, he isn't praying, may Allah guide him.......

I would us it if he/she is praying.

Typicaly I don't use it in the negative.
But for example, the destructive powers of the Tsunami or an Earthquake, it would be typical to use Subhanallah.

There was a Tsunami after an earthquake under the Indian Ocean that was realy large, Subhanallah.  (praising Allah's power)

Subhanallah, it might be a sign for us to straighten out..........
(again praising Allah's power)

Subhanallah, it rained yesterday.  (praising his mercy)
Etc.

JazakAllah kheir sister for clearing this up. That is exactly the explanation I needed. I've seen sisters (incl myself) use it in that way I described simply because I've heard others use it in that way.

Once again, thank you  biggrin.gif

                    Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh...

Shukur or Shukran means thank you in Arabic.

So Shukur Ya Allah = Thank you oh Allah.

Hope that helps InshaAllah.

                    Salam alaikum, Kareem means generous.
Allah kareem = Allah is generous. (It's a way of saying don't worry about things).
I don't have any specific website that has only hadith.
May be another sister knows of one.

                    Salaam Sister Badreya,

I'm not looking for a website as much as I am a book, and I know there are several books out there....just looking for the best one.

Jazakallah!!

Peace,  At-tariq

Ps. am I making anyone nervous here by having a masculine user name?  Perhaps I should change it?

                    Salam alaikum, your name is the name of a Surah in the Quran  biggrin.gif   It's also one of my favorite names  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif .

Ok, in my opinion Troid has one of the best bookstores.  You can order online or if your in Toronto you can buy at the store.
http://www.troid.org/store/

You can check out this book, http://www.troid.org/store/books/seerah/index.htm
The 'Aqeedah of Imaam al-Bukhaaree
- His Life, Creed, Teachers and Methodology

Paperback: 147 Pages
Published: February, 2004

Before you, O reader, may Allaah guide you to His pleasure, is a compilation of the Creed and Methodology of the great Imaam and Scholar of the Prophetic Traditions and the Religion, Al-Bukhaaree, may Allaah have Mercy upon him. Imaam Al-Bukhaaree is the author of the famous work of Hadeeth (Prophetic Tradition) known as 'Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree'. This work is considered by the scholars of Orthodox Islaam to be the most authentic book after the Qur'aan.

Otherwise this is a hadeeth book.

Explanatory Notes on Imaam an-Nawawee's Fourty Hadeeth
By Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen
Paperback: 235 Pages
Published: August, 2004

From Imaam an-Nawawee's Introduction: Subsequently, you have from the Scholars those who have compiled forty Hadeeth concerning the fundamentals of the Religion; others concerning the subsidiary branches, others concerning Jihaad, others concerning Zuhd, others concerning manners, and others concerning admonishments. All of them are righteous intentions and may Allaah be pleased with those who had these righteous intentions. I deemed it appropriate to compile forty hadeeth that encompasses all of that. Every hadeeth has in it a grand principle from the principles of the Religion.


This is all from Imam Bukhari
http://search.store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/nsea...ookstore.com%2F

Besides Troid, I love this site because the Imam is an excellent speaker, so if you order any CD's or audio cassetts you will love them.
http://www.al-basheer.com/cgi-bin/category...^topsellers.sql

There is an audio set about hadith.

Otherwise sis if you want the complete unabridged set of Bukhari which are 9 volumes, it will be over $100 something dollars, and I am not finding a set online.  Do a search inshallah.

[font=Comic Sans MS:9a108302a6][size=12][b]Alhamdolillah!

I am new here in this forum and living in a non muslim country I can only thank Allah for all important information that I've been reading on it.

We here have lack of knowledge  :cry: and sisters and brothers can not imagine how hard is to search for knowledge here, look for answers and don't find them... and also looking for muslim people who are not interested on helping us.

Allah bless you all.

                    Asalamu aliekum Sister

and WELCOME!!

I am fairly new to this site as well.  I also live in a non-Muslim area, Alhamdolilah for the Turkish market in this town where I can at least greet some Muslims and buy halal meat.  My mosque is 20 minutes away and people who attend come from miles around.

I love my deen and , alhamdolilah have had much great help from this site and from friends in learning expressions, supplications and surahs in Arabic.  Although I still have much to learn, I would be happy to help you with any, inshallah...I am only a pm away!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Wa salaam,

                    [font=Traditional Arabic:75db018d41] [/font:75db018d41]   I will be marrying a man who is from Egypt, but has moved to the US a few years ago.  I would like to learn these Arabic phrases, but I am not sure how to pronounce them?  Are there guides anywhere on how to pronounce these sayings?  Are there any good tapes/cds/etc.. that teach you the language?  

Also, I have not reverted to Islam yet.  I am learning about it, and want to know more about it.  I do want to be a good wife for my soon to be husband.
