  1. 1 week language challenge

    W/s I'm currently learning Japanese and hope to learn Arabic to an intermediate level in the future. I can personally vouch for Ibn Al-Ja'abi's advice above, especially on self-motivation (if your self-learning the language this is arguably the most important factor). To add, living in the country of your target language will really help with immersion, as will listening to podcasts and watching movies/TV shows (initially with English subs) if moving abroad for a short time isn't feasible.
  2. who is your favorite recitor?

    Omar Hisham Al-Arabi And Abdulhai Qambar
  3. Ironically Peterson is someone who seems to like to think positively, as evidenced by his desire for dialogue with 'moderate' Muslim intellectuals; yet at the same time he promotes unquestionably intellectual charlatans and repeats talking points of ignorant Islamophobes (e.g. Muhammad was a warlord, blah blah) despite himself admitting ignorance on the subject! (He is quite evidently ignorant of history as well). Perhaps he doesn't have anything positive to say on Islam--as far as I'm aware--because of his predominantly alt-right fanbase.
  4. With all the right stuff that comes out of Peterson's mouth, one has to question his integrity when he advocates opportunistic quacks like Hirsi Ali as authorities on Islam.
  5. #metoo

    Islamically abortion amounts to infanticide, which is of course condemned abundantly in the Quran (e.g. 60.12, 6.140, 6.151). Hopefully this thread isn't derailed into a clamouring discussion on abortion ;)
  6. #JusticeforZainab

    It seems the suspect has been confirmed. https://www.geo.tv/latest/178248-police-claim-to-apprehend-zainabs-killer http://dunyanews.tv/en/Pakistan/424753-Suspect-Imrans-DNA-matches-samples-from-Zainab,-seven-other-minor-girls Now he needs to be hanged and/or burnt.
  7. Umar at Fatima's (as) door.

    Times like this I wish I knew Arabic
  8. Anime, opening song.

    W/s. I used to listen to a ton of anime openings but cut down recently. I usually check to see if the lyrics are appropriate. Also, if it has a melody that genuinely makes you forget Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى then avoid it. One Piece and its openings are replete with bodily fanservice (as is common with most anime nowadays) and ought to be skipped.
  9. Thoughts on this video via recent Iranian events?

    Islamic Pulse can be a hit or miss. Definitely a miss this time round with regards to Iran's economy, which is in a legitimate crisis and whose importance shouldn't be diminished.
  10. Comparative Religion debater/preacher

    As-salamu alaykum, A few thoughts: 1. There isn't a whole lot we can add to the debate that Sunnis haven't already contributed, especially in comparative religion, where the topics that are discussed with Christians and Jews etc. heavily overlap with Shi'ism (e.g. the divine origins of Qur'an, the prophethood of Muhammad etc.) - we are all Muslims, after all. Of course, Shi'a preachers could emphasise Ali (as) as the divinely-chosen successor of the Prophet (s), or the sacrificial parallels between Jesus (as) and Imam Hussain (as), but I can't imagine this being very productive given the massive propaganda onslaught against our creed. 2. There’s a fine distinction between ‘scholar’ and ‘preacher’. Naik and Deedat aren’t scholars, that is, they weren’t formally trained in the Islamic sciences. So while we may not have preachers of their calibre, we have speakers (who have been trained in both eastern and western academic circles, thus qualifying as scholars, worth more than any preacher) whose lectures (e.g. those of Ammar Nakshawani) have converted many from Sunnism to Shi’ism. Perhaps this is the detail we should focus on: not the conversion of the non-Muslim to Shi’ism (though this would be ideal), but from their Sunnism to Shi’ism. Let them accept (Sunni) Islam, and we can guide them to Ahlulbayt (as) through a step-by-step process.
  11. As-salamu alaykum, Sure, religion is prone to perversion, but which specific ideology isn’t if it’s rooted, for instance, in edifices as fascism, nationalism, or communism? If your saying that Islam has been exploited despite its inherent propensity for non-violence, then this can apply to just about anything, even non-abstractions like alcohol drinking and use of technology (the former is often abused and three/four years ago was responsible for half of a total of 1.3,000,000 violent incidents in the UK; I needn’t even delve into the latter, which has afforded governments the privilege of drone bombing men, women and children from the skies while their fad-driven, materialist citizens talk hypocritically of peace and the apparently inherent evilness and destructiveness of religion). Anyway, the reasons for the ME conflict today and its consequences (terrorism) are firmly rooted in the realm of power politics (go figure), not religion, and experts (which include non-Muslim Western academics) in these areas say as much. There will be peace, insha'Allah, when the Twelfth (aj) arrives.
  12. I asked for permission to re-upload but haven't received a reply, so I've put them up anyway (I'm sure they won't mind).
  13. As-salamu alaikum, Nice one, brother! Does this mean we can upload them if we have any? I saved quite a few I really liked in case this would happen.
  14. Wa alaikum assalam, Dua Simaat is the greatest we have for protection and bringing about the downfall of the enemies of Ahlulbayt (as). https://www.duas.org/simaat.htm
