  1. https://www.facebook.com/aimislam/ Eulogies being recited right now, and Sheikh Hamza Sodagar is expected to be live in a few minutes.
  2. The SC Revert Support Network

    Salaam, I'm in London and would love to be of service.
  3. Shopping List

    Good idea; got these when carpeting the house recently. Statistically it's only a small amount of time before non-shoe removers show up and spoil the party, as monad said.
  4. Iranian Elections 2016

    Ouch, that's coming from an uncomfortable place. You might need a break or vacation? You have to wonder what some people get out of repeatedly visiting a community's website, and attacking the community. Sad really. If it's their job, that's got to be the worst job ever.
  5. Iranian Elections 2016

    Well said! Iran's haters either need to stick to 'they're all the same!', or 'haha reformists win!' - can't claim both.
  6. Yasser Habib

    Also note that this site discourages bringing him up, so we should avoid doing that.
  7. Yasser Habib

    He's well-known as a fitna monger. Shia Muslims disassociate from him (except for a handful of fanatics), because the Quran says don't divide yourselves.
  8. Wa alaikum assalam. You know what, there's an easy solution to your problem - just have lots of your non-Muslims friends join you, and then you'll blend right in :) More seriously, many converts complain of the opposite issue - that after the initial warm welcome to the Muslim community, they're left out in the cold and remain without former friends or family who had abandoned them as they converted. So I think as members above said, the solution is to politely communicate that you're a private person, and would like the calls and other contact to stop. Different people have different appetites for social interaction, which is quite understandable. For the community as a whole, it would seem like the widespread risk of people being left lonely is of greater importance than some being annoyed by to much contact.

  10. Guilt And Unforgiveness.

    CLynn, is that you?
  11. Chaplaincy Programs

    Wa alaikum assalam, People go to hawza for a variety of reasons, including becoming clerics. And there are UK-based programs: http://www.hawzaengland.com/ http://www.almahdi.edu/ http://www.islamic-college.ac.uk/
  12. ^ Many people struggle with that and it's understandable to an extent, especially if you haven't been a target of that kind of behaviour. Spending some time learning more about these dynamics can help us, to be more fair and compassionate in life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQAmdZvKf6M
  13. Guilt And Unforgiveness.

    For what it's worth, Muslims are proud of Jesus Christ, and he is considered one of our great Prophets in Islam. See brother Abu Hadi's book: http://www.shareglobalcharity.org/img/JesusThruOurEyes.pdf
