  1. I just want to add, Donald Trump is someone who is inherently corrupt himself and we need to be on the side of the millions of working and middle-class families in America on one hand opposing him, and on the other, supporting the good he is doing by wrecking and wreaking havoc in the establishment which he may himself become beholden to.
  2. @shiaman14 I think you've summarised it pretty well when you stated that you can't misunderstand something you never truly understood to begin with. I say it may be partly to do with my lack of clarification [i'll give people the benefit of the doubt] and partly to do with someone not understanding. The solution is pretty simple, there needs to be more collective effort and awareness among us as a group on modern-day pertinent and pressing social, political and global realities. As i said, mourning for aba abdillah asws is an incredibly worthy act, but we need to implement hussayni morals, ideologies, and practical applications in society today - that's the solution.
  3. No problem sister, i am sure we can all benefit from the insight and advice. If possible, could you also expand on how one can be consistent in their life? Often in life, it's not the big battles we lose, but the daily little battles. When we skip that work out, or fail to be consistent and do things 4/7 times rather than six or seven out of seven. No pressure though. I feel many of us can relate to having enormous pressure put on us.
  4. She ordered grown women to breast-feed grown men so that those men could become mahram. Now, there is a debate whether this was directly or indirectly [as you can see from my post] but arguably both forms are pretty bizarre and contrary to the sunnah. This isn't the first time she has erred greatly, such as waging war on Ali ibn Abi Talib a.s and taking matters in her own hands as another. Backing herself along with another wife against the Prophet [saw] in the incident of the honey, abusing Saffiya, and the list goes on. I sound like i am really being harsh on her, but i promise, i am saying this with the utmost respect and merely stating historical realities sunni's and shia's agree on.

  6. Give me a PM and i'll try to reply tomorrow if possible inshAllah. But it should be clear from my posts that any title i attribute to her is no indication of giving her the same rank and importance as our sunni brothers/sisters.
  7. Fine, if i have to choose one, it would have to be @Maula Dha Mallang
  8. All of them.

  13. "INFJs are distinguished by both their complexity of character and the unusual range and depth of their talents. Strongly humanitarian in outlook, INFJs tend to be idealists, and because of their J preference for closure and completion, they are generally "doers" as well as dreamers. This rare combination of vision and practicality often results in INFJs taking a disproportionate amount of responsibility in the various causes to which so many of them seem to be drawn."
  14. I've scored 'INJF' or similar on many of these personality tests.
  15. INFJ here too!
