  2. Do Shias respect Christians?

    I have never attempted to convert anyone to islam, I respect people of all beliefs, and even those who don't believe in God (provided it's not a militant type of atheism, more like live and let live). If they ask questions I try to answer them to the best of my ability, but I try to treat people with respect if they treat me with respect, regardless of what belief they are.
  3. KFCs in UK closed

    They had a series of Halal KFC’s in Chicago for a long time (4 or 5) but in the last six months they had to stop. KFC mandated that all franchise owners had to buy their chicken (non-Halal). The reasoning that was given was that since KFC does not advertise their chicken as being either Halal or Kosher and that it wasn’t regulated that they were open to legal liability if it turned out that someone sold non-Halal and claimed it to be Halal. Not sure if that was the actual reason or if they were being honest but no more Halal KFC’s in the Chicago area. On a side note, KFC was a great meal. Grease and all. Still to this day no one makes better Cole slaw or Mac and Cheese. Chicken was classic good.
  4. My Imambarga is closing!

    Well, if you want to take a bit of a drive we’ve got 3 down here in Chicago that are Indo/Pak and several others for Farsi and/or Arabic speakers.
  5. Iran threatens to flattin Tel Aviv to the ground!

    They don't do that. In war against ISIS, one million soldier from ordinary people signed up to go to Syria and Iraq, but Ayatollah Khamenei didn't let them go. They do that when things are serious like Iran-Iraq war. For destroying small groups and regimes, they send military generals and small number of soldiers.
  6. Iran threatens to flattin Tel Aviv to the ground!

    Our brother responded you back. If US could destroy Iran, they would do that already. Like the way they attacked Iraq and Afghanistan. They know they cannot do anything. This is based on experience. If you are religious person, Ayatollah Khomaini and Khamenei both said US cannot do anything.
  7. Do Shias respect Christians?

    I haven’t met a Shia who didn’t respect Christians, and sometimes even put them on a pedestal (especially in Iran). On the other hand, I’ve met plenty of Christian missionaries who have been anything but accommodating. Setting up stalls outside of our events, knocking on our doors, leaving notes on my car, and even signing up on forums like this to insult us. The internet is full of Christian websites that say that we are a barbaric pedophilic cult that worships a pagan devil moon, and you don’t really find as many Muslim websites that do that to Christians.
  8. Nontritarian Christians considered from ahlulkitb

    Wa alaikum salaam I would definitely say yes. In fact, they probably have more inheritance to this title then trinitarian Christians because they actually follow monotheism as instructed and revealed by Allah. The trinity is only a concept attached to Christianity through interpretation, which was established through the Nicene Creed in Constantinople. There were Christians then who also believed in other interpretations and as such also opposed the trinity, such as Arius. If you refer to the below map of Arian Christians, you can see half of the Christian states adhered to this in 500 A.D. It was only then approximately 70 years on from this when the Prophet Mohammad (s) was born. Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of Allah . But they did not observe it with due observance. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are defiantly disobedient. Quran 57:27
  9. Predestination

    Iraqi, did you not say: "We do not know anyone's fate, as we do not know the circumstances, their limitations etc. Hitler choose freely to do what he did, God did not force him to do it, he did not command him to do it, in fact he commanded him to be just and be a good person. So how is God responsible?" Your statement: A. We don't know anyone's fate B. God didn't force Hitler to do the things he did C. Therefore, it was Hitler's choice to do what he did (ie commit evil acts) Premise B contradicts premise A, doesn't it? If we don't know anyone's fate, then how can you be so sure that Allah didn't force Hitler to do what he did? I agree that Hitler chose to do evil things, but I think you are missing my point. My point is simply that the Koran specifically states that Allah schemes against schemers and since Hitler was one of the best schemers, it is only reasonable to think that Allah set him up...and if Allah set him up, then wouldn't that make Allah somewhat responsible for his wickedness? After all, you don't bait a mouse trap unless you know that the mouse will go for the treat and get caught in the trap. So why WOULDN'T Allah scheme against an idolater who turned people away from the truth? What about the story of the yellow cow in the Koran? If Allah makes such commands towards the children of Israel in the Koran, what would Allah do to a scheming idolater?

    Where can I sign up too? Is Iran recruiting?
  12. KFCs in UK closed

    If you don't cook, halal KFC, halal nandos, halal mcdonalds is the best thing that could happen to you. I know its super bad for you, but if you're a student, its extremely convenient.
  13. Do Shias respect Christians?

    sure he did - he preached and also fed but never did he feed in the hope of "converting" people. That would go against the very being that he was. I don't think the Bible preaches to do works with a catch
  14. Salam alaykum brothers and sisters are nontrinitarian Christians considered from the people of the book(ahlulkitab) like tritarian Christians? For example if that person is a Catholic,Protestant and etc and does not believe in the trinity is he or she considered from the people of the book(ahlulkitab) like tritarians Christians are??
  15. Building Muscle: No nonsense guide debunking myths

    Thanks for the suggestions. Most of this is doable, except the six eggs. I can't eat six eggs in a sitting lol. I get full with two eggs. I can maybe eat 3 or 4 after a long day of hard labor but six, nah. I can replace that, though. Each egg is only like 6g protein anyway. @Intellectual Resistance Thanks for taking your time to respond. I suspected what you are saying: that I will eventually have to make the transition back to weights. I can't wait to see your purchase suggestions for that.
  16. World Cup 2018!

    Isn't it interesting how 9 of these 11 players play in foreign leagues? The team is even more stacked with legionnaires than in the last World Cup.
  17. World Cup 2018!

    Too old and slow. Might have an impact as a sub, but I'd consider bringing on both Kaveh Rezaei and Ansarifard before I turned to Gucci (based on recent form). Can't really see him starting over either of Taremi or Azmoun. He was past his prime even before the '14 World Cup.
  18. KFCs in UK closed

    I love this post only because I had no idea Chicken Cottage was a real thing. I thought Four Lions made it up.
  19. Do Shias respect Christians?

    Huh? With all due respect brother Jesus did preach the gospel of his Kingdom to the Jews and Gentiles (John 3:1-15; 4:1-42). He did not merely feed and heal people but also preached the gospel message.
  20. World Cup 2018!

    Where's Ghouchannejad?
  21. Assalam. Like i told you before, they can do nothing. once they do, they will be removed from any map Enshallah. you need to read histories, what happened between Iran-Iraq 40 years ago, it wasnt only Iraq, at least 8 countries. while we had stick in your hands and they has f14 Tomcat. what imam khomeini r.a said: US can do nothing. a man with empty hand say that, who even wasnt a general. you see airstrikes? we see other things. not everythings are materialistic. Wassalam.
  22. Iran threatens to flattin Tel Aviv to the ground!

    Wars are expensive bro, and the insurgency in Iran would be way worse than Iraq or Afghanistan, but the US airpower could devastate Iranian infrastructure from the air. So far Iran has behaved very rationally and sensibly to prevent this type of escalation. I believe they will continue doing the same. This is why you see the occasional Israeli strikes in Syria ignored, because Iran can take these hits and maintain their main objective, rather than if they start bombing Israel which would surely invite a US attack on Iran.
  23. Assalam. for your information as a shia'a brother, if, if only for 1 second, US get a result that the can destory iran, they dont hesitate it. they know what kind of punch they get in their face. wassalam.
  24. Iran threatens to flattin Tel Aviv to the ground!

    As much as I despise Zionism, I hope you realise Iran's rhetoric is very different from its actions. If Iran even attempts to do anything significant to Israel, the US will step in and destroy Iran and Iran is not suicidal. Iran will act in a manner that's calculated and proportionate, it will not do anything to significantly damage Israel.
  25. Poetry of Hafiz.

    It is said that poetry of mystics and Arifs are not just jargon words. But it is they want to convey higher devine truths in simpler language. Because they canot convey it language of this world they use metaphors.
