"Do not argue with the contentious, nor provoke them with words. Pause before those who interrupt and give way to those who verbally attack you. Sleep a night before speaking. For the unrestrained person is like a storm which bursts forth like a flame in a pile of straw." Selections from the Husia (Sacred Wisdom of Ancient Egypt) translated by Maulana Karenga

I am in Lincoln Park Michigan.. Close enough 2 Dearborn for the religious aspect of it yet far enough away from the cultural aspect.

Every father who couldn't get food for his children,
Every woman who was homeless,
Everybody who suffered and became shelter less,
All of them knew the way to Khadijeh's (S.A.) house and went there.
They took refuge in her kindness and wealth.
The sore hearts of those people were treated with her favour and grace."

It's so difficult not having a decent size shia community here. I think there are only two other families in my area. We have to go to detroit for 9th and 10th Moharrum...

I'm the lone "Shi'ah" ranger of Orange Park, Florida (near Jacksonville, where the Super Bowl will be), the land of no Shi'ah community.

He it is Who has sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (the Holy Quran): In it are verses that are entirely clear; they are the foundation of the Book: while others are more difficult to understand. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is difficult to understand, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord: and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding. (Holy Quran 3:7)
Those who believe and do good deeds shall be blessed with joy, and a beautiful place of (final) return. (Holy Quran 13:29)

That is of which Allah gives the good news to His servants, (to) those who believe and do good deeds. Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it but love for my near relatives; and whoever earns good, We give him more of good therein; surely Allah is Forgiving, Grateful. [42:23]

I am from Michigan....
Near Dearborn: Close enough, but not too close.
Dearborn: Can't live in it, can't live without it.
