  1. Books written by Supreme Leaders of Iran

    Salam, See some works by Sayyid Khomeini here: https://www.al-islam.org/person/ayatullah-sayyid-imam-ruhallah-musawi-khomeini And some by Sayyid Khamenei here: https://www.al-islam.org/person/ayatullah-sayyid-ali-khamenei There are some works on political thought, and the Islamic identity, but not so much in detail of the revolution itself. For that I'd recommend Hamid Algar's Roots of the Islamic Revolution
  2. Bahais in iran

    Just sharing these here, for whomever may be interested (I have not verified all the information here): http://bahaicultfaq.blogspot.ca/ http://bahailiescemeteries.blogspot.ca/2015/11/golestan-i-javid-of-tehran-still.html Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi (of Toronto), discusses them here as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5G2r6GhmSY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71Z_68kjWfk
  3. Clinton Done For? First Calls to Go

    I can see Clinton losing, if this continues. From the Benghazi leaks to her uncharismatic approach play throughout this ordeal. The hoo-haa in American politics is really intriguing, lol. I don't doubt there there is a mainstream/left-current that is working hard to upend a Clintonian run-in for the hot seat, but even if they manage to, and Sanders makes his way there, I don't know if it'll mean much tbh. Meh
  4. Game of Thrones

    I had posted this on Fb a while back, GoT and its increasing social presence in Muslim-spaces really bothers me: This is really bothersome. The number of times GoT references are made in day-to-day life, its almost hard not to notice. What is worse, is how normalized this sort of culture has become in Muslim communities. What sort of future generation are we looking to have? Or children?The psycho-spiritual ramifications in this world are probably so many, I wonder about the punishment of the hereafter!And I'm sorry, the age-old argument that "but we close our eyes" or "we skip the dirty parts" does not cut it. Something like this is absolutely riddled with 'dirty' and 'disgusting'. http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/rendezview/how-game-of-thrones-made-porn-socially-acceptable/news-story/40b149ce4b39cf4756719fd00413c49f
  5. Hello To Melbourne

    Salam, I just moved to Melbourne a few months ago. Its a fairly small community, with not much Islamic activity around - other than Panjtan centre and a few youth organisations there is not much else. Check out this group for Panjtan (PSV)-activities: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1171728929528662/ The khojas are working on a community centre: https://www.facebook.com/KSIJMelbourne/timeline An iraqi/lebanese youth group: https://www.facebook.com/abeaconofhopeaustralia/ In terms of halal food, if you are in the city & any other non-rural areas, there are a lot of options. Just ask at every foodstore/restaurant as not all of them have halal signage up.
  6. Touching Opposite Gender As Part Of Your Job

    Salam alaykum, Thank you for this thread, its really helpful. I'm wondering, during medical school training, we are required to take some physical exams (OSCE's). These exams could potentially have simulated-female patients. In this case, the matter is not necessarily *urgent*, but in order to pass you have to do the necessary physical exam(s) on the female. As a male, is that okay? Does that qualify as necessary?
