    World Cup 2018!

    'Supplier' is too strong of a word. They waited until a month before the World Cup to release the designs and aren't even retailing it. The Instagram page is a German knock-off of the real product.

    I should ban you for cramming that much British slang into one post.

    World Cup 2018!

    Has anyone gotten jerseys yet? @baradar_jackson Do you know of any place selling Iranian kits to poor Westerners like me, now that they've been released? Adidas.co.iran on Instagram seems like the closest to the real thing.

    World Cup 2018!

    Lol Sayed Jalal didn't even make the squad. Looks more like this now: Azmoun Taremi -- Dejagah -- Jahanbaksh Hajsafi -- Ezatolahi Mohammadi -- Pouraliganji -- Majid Hosseini -- Rezaeian Beiranvand

    Iran soccer stadium chants “Reza Shah”

    Didn't want to bump this topic up, but that's literally the quietest football chant I've ever heard.

    **Ramadan 2018 Lectures and Speeches**

    Is this supposed to compete with my 2015-2017 Ramadan Lecture threads? In all seriousness, these mega-thread compilations have the very real potential to become repositories of lectures that are otherwise hard to categorize as time passes on the Internet. The older Muharram and Ramadan topics from recent years are already up to several thousand views — which is a lot for a ShiaChat thread, with the added caveat that these particular ones load at a snail's pace once we fill them up with embedded YouTube videos. Like last year, feel free to share any lectures/talks you can find, but also please try to make sure that you share lectures of this year. Let's try to get as wide a range of scholars and topics as we can, so this thread can continue to be useful for listeners (especially native English speakers) who come snooping around in the coming months and years for themed lectures based on year or speaker, while also serving as a form of sadqah jariyah for all of us. This is contingent on all of us working together to keep this thread updated!

    Toronto Van Attack

    Any guy who'd openly frame his entire identity around not being able to sleep with women has some pretty extreme social issues. This Minassian guy apparently had a pretty strong form of Asperger's, so much so that his only form of interacting with people in high school was to meow at them. Anyway, I don't think this incel movement is as widespread as the media is making it out to be. It was more or less born out of the cult of Elliot Rodger's rampage, and self-proclaimed incels don't seem to get a lot of support on their own forums. Reddit's incel-shaming forum is several times the size of the actual incel subreddit.

    Toronto Van Attack

    Terrorism, maybe. But the 'alt-right' label is what I'm more critical of -- everything I've read about this guy points to the fact that he was autistic, disturbed, and definetely should not have been able to rent a van. I have a hard time believing anyone who'd openly brag about being an incel would be accepted by the alt-right, and the two movements' shared misogynism seems coincidental at best.

    US-UK-France Launch Attacks on Syria

    The OPCW inquiry team landed in Damascus today, several hours after Western airstrikes (based on information from a war zone that the OPCW is supposed to verify) ceased.

    US-UK-France Launch Attacks on Syria

    The single biggest fallacy surrounding the Western narrative. And the best thing about it is that people know this time.

    US-UK-France Launch Attacks on Syria

    Thanks for creating this topic, brother. I urge anyone following these events, as they unfold, to use Reddit (r/syriancivilwar). It really helps with keeping on top of all the different partisan Twitter accounts documenting the progress of missile strikes with almost realtime speed. https://www.reddit.com/r/syriancivilwar/comments/8c45sx/announcement_of_the_reinstatement_of_martial_law/ Some of these links contain profanity.

    Thoughts 2018

    I think it's all very relative. The verses and depictions of Paradise you're referencing were revealed as parables to desert-dwelling Arabs who probably did view the sun's heat as oppressive and threatening. I'm not saying that there's no universal wisdom in that, but it's pretty natural for a Western person living in a typically cold climate to want to vacation in warmer countries (with more sun), while you'll get millions of people in Pakistan on the other hand who'll take week-long trips to Murree every year just to catch a glimpse of snow. Personally, I feel that humanity and the human body were made for warmer, more sunny climates near the equator, and that the trend of colozining our Lands of Always Winter is unnatural and harmful. People can survive 40°C without clothes or ACs, but - 40°C is another matter. But all of this weather stuff is on a bit of a tangent. It comes down to personal preference in the end.

    Animals eating animals

    Wouldn't you say that Ibn al-Hussain's reply to your post in that thread established the existence of a "predator" categorisation? Of course it's not absolute, but it's still correct to think of predators as generally haram as a rule of thumb.

    Animals eating animals

    Lol you didn't reply to the ahadith @Ibn al-Hussain posted in this thread. Trying to pick on us when he's not around? @Ibn Al-Shahid this is a really good topic to go through ^^. There are many exceptions to the blanket rule.

    Thoughts 2018

    Why are summers so much better than winters? I'm gonna guess it's the sunlight.

    Dr Jordan Peterson thread *Change your life*

    I meant, obviously, everything I've heard from him in his videos regarding religion and ethics (as opposed to other subjects he regularly discusses). I agree in that he's aggrssively promoting his religious view, but I think a major reason why he has such a celebrity status in the West is because of how easily his words can be used to give an ideological basis to generally right-wing beliefs. I think there are better motivational speakers out there than people who so regularly try to be virulenly anti-Islamic.

    Dr Jordan Peterson thread *Change your life*

    I haven't looked through the clips you posted or listened to Jordan Peterson more than I ever needed to, but everything I've ever heard about him has fit into a certain kind of narrative. He seems to be the kind of intellectual who tries very hard to conform to conventional right-wing views on every topic -- which includes bashing Islam and the Prophet with his rather illogical attempts at logic. Didn't want to poop the party, but I think that's something we need to consider when we're talking about him.

    I wish had time to stay addicted to this website.

    World Cup 2018!

    I think his real prime was 2-3 years before the World Cup. His goal against Korea is still a great memory, but I can't remember him having an impact on the Finals themselves (did he score the one goal?). Might just be the 4 long years doing this to me. True, Taremi and Pouraliganji are playing in Qatar, but both are more than capable of playing elsewhere. Taremi especially is at least playing somewhere before the WC, after sitting out a 6 month FIFA ban for walking out of a transfer with a Turkish club. But Ansarifard, Ghoddos, Jahanbaksh, and Rezaei are all at or near the top of the leading scorer charts in their European leagues (Greece, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Belgium respectively). Might not be the best leagues in the world, but others like Azmoun and maybe Dejagah could've legitimately been starting for Everton right now had they transferred (which Azmoun didn't out of a desire to stay in Russia before the World Cup). Mohammadi and Ezatolahi are in the same way, if nothing else, acclimatized to playing in Russia because they play in the first division over there.

    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.
