    (Halaal) Aspects of Different Cultures that Impressed You

    Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah.

    Just a little 'non-serious' thread to discuss certain (halaal) customs from cultures other than yours that you were impressed by. If you want, you could mention something from your own culture, too, that you really like or appreciate... We have quite a few different nationalities of people on the forum, so hopefully we'll see a nice mix of replies, inshaa'aAllah.

    :wswrwb:

    Byriani I guess

    Inb4 the byriani addicts


    It's impressive, it makes rice superior than rotis

      I'm very proud of our British custom of queuing in a nice and orderly fashion :D

      I admire the Chinese dedication to self discipline and their strong hard work ethic, and the emphasis South Asian cultures place on taking care of their elderly.

        Yes biryani all the way
        Surah Taha, Verse 69:

        وَأَلْقِ مَا فِي يَمِينِكَ تَلْقَفْ مَا صَنَعُوا إِنَّمَا صَنَعُوا كَيْدُ سَاحِرٍ وَلَا يُفْلِحُ السَّاحِرُ حَيْثُ أَتَىٰ

        "And throw that which is in your right hand! It will swallow up that which they have made. That which they have made is only a magician's trick,
        and the magician will never be successful, no matter whatever amount (of skill) he may attain."

            Re: (Halaal) Aspects of Different Cultures that Impressed You

            It's mainly the variety of food for me

            Bengali food being the best imho

            Then the colourful events, the cultural dresses

                Byriani isn't even my favourite lmso (Bengali have akni mainly) I think they are both the same

                          In all honesty, I was too preoccupied with the example in my mind and the reason for this thread that I'd completely forgotten that food would figure in most people's minds. Hmmm....


                          Queuing In an orderly fashion is just the accepted norm worldwide, though, surely? Sarcasm, maybe.

                          Emphasis on looking after the elderly and the brightly coloured Asian clothing, Ahamdulillah. Those are two I can agree with.

                            I think this is the second time I've seen sister mention husband in the last couple of days of browsing the forum (?).

                            I wonder if I missed some very good news whilst off the forum for the last few months.
