    A competition with a prized winner? I Respectfully disagree.
  11. Saudi Arabia: The Land of Hajj and Gambling?

  12. Rolex or Lamborghini

    OP states I don't want to see comments like "neither, I'd rather have knowledge, this is materialism, bla bla bla". SC disobeys. Hahaha...
  13. I'm currently reading a book that covers the "Satanic Verses" incident. Does the jafari school have a position on the alleged incident with our beloved Rasool saw?
