Alhamdulillah. Shura meeting concluded yesterday. Even though I didn't vote for this name - alhamdulillah Shura won at the end!

Let's all welcome: Banu Thalj!

Why is Thalj such a cool name? Because it literally means 'snow'. :)

In the dua of the Prophet, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, "O Allah, wash our sins with water, Thalj (snow), and Barad (ice)."

Thalj is:
--- beautiful
--- clean
--- pure
--- Paak

Cool name, eh? What'cha think...

Welcome Banu Thalj!

Banu Thalj also reminds me of the beautiful winter nights in Winnipeg after the fall of fresh thalj that reflects the Moonlight making it almost look like day time. Its such a serene and tranquil feeling one gets observing this. SubhanAllah

Thalj also brings to mind the beautiful and unique snow crystals. Each more amazing than the other yet working as a team. Insha'Allah Banu Thalj will retain the uniqueness of individuals and the spirit of working together. Ameen.

I like the sound of Thalj when said and the photos of the snow flakes was very BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for posting it Batool :) SubhanAllah, how did they manage to handle something so delicate? Very COOL! (in literal meaning too!)

Banu Thalj................NOICE! Reminds me of snow white :p

I thought the coolest banu name was El Akh :D

That really is a great name, ma sha Allah.
The symoblism and analogies you can use for marketing are endless!
-Each snowflake is unique; original
-Alone they are beautiful & cause you to wonder
-In packs, they are unstoppable....seriously, the East Coast is at home cuz of you guys today.

On the other hand, be ready for the "We'll plow right through the Thalj" talk that's bound to come up.
(And please, never say "The blizzard is coming!"....you're too cool to be corny. :))

What's more serene: Rainfall or Snowfall?

02-25-2010, 05:49 PM
This name is absolutely perfect for Winnipeg...I am actually starting to appreciate all the snow we get :)

What's more serene: Rainfall or Snowfall?I personally love rainfall. But snowfall is so silent and serene, ma sha Allah.
It's a hard pick.

SubhanAllah when I first came here to Winnipeg the flat vastness of prairies was amazing. You can see miles on end. Hardly any other place on Earth is like this.

And today while driving noticing the snow covered landscape made me realize that here in Banu Thalj we will never look at snow the same way.

We have never realized that SubhanAllah that snow is the most common pure white substance available in nature.

The colour of purity subganAllah that's why our deceased are buries in it. And so many cultures have white as the colour as of the bridal outfit.

And insha'Allah we hope that like the amazing, mind boggling property of snow...{it expands as it freezes enabling aquatic life to be preserved; as snow is lighter than water and it floats covering water almost like a blanket, allowing plants and animals to continue living without freeving}. We hope that Banu Thalj will act like that for the preservation of our deen.

It's a hard pick. Sheikh did you just have a conversation with yourself by asking a question and then answering it? NOICE!
