    I was so tempted to respond with a Gif! But I'll refrain.
  2. Share motivational videos

    Salaam all, I thought it might be beneficial to have a thread where we can specifically post videos/clips. Whether you find them to be motivational, inspirational or spiritually uplifting and think they may benefit others. I was sent this clip the other day and thought it was beautiful and very spiritual.

    Some of the attitudes that people have towards domestic violence are disgusting!
  4. Thoughts 2018

    @Intellectual Resistance Brother you can report threads or posts along with what action you'd like taken and mods will discuss. Linking them on other threads such as this one will only give them more attention.
  5. At Loss

    That good too hear dear sis, best of luck. Sometimes going through rubbish gives us that motivation or push we need to perform better than we expected.
  6. Share motivational videos

    Thanks @Ali_Hussain they are both tear jerkers that's for sure. Seeing you reminded me of someone.....

    Imam Jafar as Sadiq (a.s) had many debates and wise responses to atheists and followers of different schools of thought. In one instance, someone asked Imam as-Sadiq to show him God. The Imam replied, “Look at the sun.” The man said that he could not look at the sun because it was too bright. Imam as-Sadiq (a.s) replied, “If you cannot see the created, how can you expect to see the Creator?” http://ijtihadnet.com/brief-history-fiqh-al-jafariya/

    Salaam brother, Welcome to ShiaChat.
  9. Thoughts 2018

    Sister, believe it or not, some people are in denial about whats happening to them. Some, may not even understand emotional abuse initially, as it's done in a very manipulative way and there's no "proof" per se. Physical abuse is a lot more obvious to most but maybe a person that has grown up in a physically abusive environment thinks its ok to act in such a way or be at the receiving end? I am not saying its learnt behaviour for everyone but for some at the very least. Other times, people are just scared to leave those relationships. Have you heard this saying: "You can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink?" Sometimes it takes a person to be battered and bruised or put down that many times to finally get that strength and realise that they will not put up with it anymore and there's only so much onlookers can do. Also, people are in different situations so for some, it may be easier to walk away than others. We pray for any victim of any type of abuse whether it may be a male, female, child or the elderly that they are able to overcome these situations and to get the justice they deserve.
  10. (Top) 10 Interviewing Tips

    Thank you brother, this is really helpful. As a female, I often worry about no.4 before I go to an interview as it can be pretty awkward when facing a situation like that with a non-mahram.
  11. Shiabladeunner zain rizvi attacked by salafi thug

    Maybe that is their job, lol. Inshallah this brother and anyone that was with him is ok. A few years ago there was a Shia brother who was debating some Wahabis on Edgeware road in London. The brother got beaten up pretty badly but luckily he was ok.
