From Shaytan’s Deceptions: Giving Pleasing Names to Forbidden Things
Dr. `Umar Al-Ashqar
Among the deceptions of Satan is that he names the evil actions with names that are very pleasing to the human to entice him to take part in them. In this way, he dupes the human and makes a forgery of the reality of the situation. For example, Satan called the tree that was forbidden to Adam, “the tree of everlasting life” in order to make it appealing to Adam:
“[But Satan whispered to him saying, 1] ‘Oh Adam, shall I show you the tree of immortality and power that wastes not away?‘” [Taha 20:120]
Ibn al-Qayyim stated: “From Satan, his followers inherited this trait of using names that are loved by the soul for forbidden objects. For example, wine is called ‘the mother of glee’, interest is called a ‘business transaction’, and taxes and tolls are called ‘the right of the government.’”
Today interest is referred to as profit; dancing, music and plays are called art.
1- These words form part of the verse but al-Ashqar excluded them from the original work. – JZ

Is it permissible to brush one’s teeth using toothpaste when fasting? As far as I know, it is permissible as long as the toothpaste is not swallowed. Please give your input on this Praise be to Allaah.
Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about using toothpaste whilst fasting. He said: there is nothing wrong with that so long as one is careful to avoid swallowing any of it, just as it is prescribed in Islam for the fasting person to use the siwaak (tooth-stick) Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 4/247
Shaykh Muhammad al-Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:… This leads us to the question: Is it permissible to use a toothbrush and toothpaste whilst fasting or not? The answer is that it is permitted, but it is preferable not to use them because the toothpaste is too strong and may go down into the throat. Instead of doing that during the day, one should do it at night.

They said the sound of heavy machinegun fire and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) echoed through the heavily guarded al-Mezze district. There was no immediate word on casualties but residents said by telephone the fighting was intense.
“There is fighting near Hamada supermarket and the sound of explosions there and elsewhere in the neighbourhood. Regime thugs have blocked several side streets and the street lighting has been cut off,” a housewife who lives in the area said. As hundreds gathered on Sunday in Damascus to mourn victims of car bombings the previous day, activists said security forces beat and arrested people at a march of more than 200 when protesters began shouting “the people want to topple the regime”.
In my area it is belive that one can not see the first moon due to the fact that there are many industry .what do you say to this. and what is the size of the first moon.
Praise be to Allaah.
It is not difficult to sight the new moon when it appears. Although it may be difficult to sight it in some places because there is too much smoke, it will not be difficult to sight it in other areas where the sky is clearer.
No matter how high smoke and buildings may be, they can never cover the moon like the clouds. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) has told us that if it is cloudy and we cannot see the new moon, then we must complete the month of Sha’baan and regard it as having thirty days.
So either the new moon can be seen through the smoke and buildings, in which case we should fast when it is seen;
Or it can be seen in another place where the sky is clearer, so we should fast when it is seen;
Or it is too cloudy and we cannot see it, so we should regard Sha’baan as having thirty days.
With regard to the size of the new moon when it appears, it is very small and cannot be seen except by one who has good eyesight.
And Allaah knows best.
