How My Non-Muslim Family Members Have Made Me A Stronger Muslim

By Laura El Alam Whenever I walk into a room, there is one member of my family who consistently walks right out.  He says he’s not comfortable with me now that I wear a headscarf. He’s had nearly 19 years to adjust, but the “discomfort” persists.   I’m allowed to visit another close relative’s house only if I agree not to pray there. He believes his home is “consecrated to Christ,” and if I worship Allah there, it would somehow taint the sanctity of his home. When I tell him that I do not ...

Can Rice Water Actually Make Your Hair Grow Faster? Experts Weigh In

We have a bad habit of seeking instant gratification when it comes to a lot of things. We expect to feel healthier after eating one kale salad for lunch. We check the mirror every 10 minutes to make sure that new face mask is actually working. And if a round of squats doesn't display instant booty-lifting benefits, well, we're likely to fall right off the fitness bandwagon. The point is: When we test a new product, service, or treatment, we often anticipate immediate, life-altering results that...
