  1. The description under the video explains that the 'victims' of the 'chemical attack' were inside the hospital and getting water poured on their body. None of the people in the emergency room were wearing protective gear. Apparently the 'victims' were not suffering from 'chemical attack.' The comments by youtube viewers show that they agree the 'chemical attack' was a hoax, a justification for a military attack against the Syrian government.
  2. Reports: Gunfire outside Saudi king's home

    Sad but it's very likely that if they arrest an innocent man his name will probably be a Shia name.
  3. Reports: Gunfire outside Saudi king's home

    The news story has a link to Saudi Press Agency that no longer exists. They removed it. Were the gunshots from the drone itself or the body guards or police were shooting at the drone?
  4. Not allowed to eat

    Salam, Sister. Of course your Mom should not treat you like that, but she has an excuse. She is very worried and tense, for any number of reasons, and I don't know what those reasons are. Maybe you know what her problems are. However, the fact that you are moving out in the Summer has made your Mother even more anxious. She is worried what will happen to you when you live somewhere else. Try to make her life easier in these last few months or weeks before you leave. Talk to her and smile a little. When we are young we expect our parents to be the best and they sometimes can't be. They can only be as they are, until they reflect on their own behavior, calm down and realize that they should see life from their child's point of view.
  5. Female staying single?

    The sister is a Shia. She mentioned that she has thought about moving to Iran:
  6. For those (like me) who can't remember the main details of the political incidents, the timeline (with little snippets of quotes and tweets) is on this news page: https://www.npr.org/2017/05/15/527773206/what-just-happened-the-james-comey-saga-in-timeline-form
  7. Salam. There are many people who do not take calculus, chemistry, physics, trigonometry, etc. It seems like your family might be pushing you to take courses that you don't want. Do they want to plan what career you will have?
  8. Great 'header photo'

    I removed my long header photo on my profile during the month of February. I always remove it during the shahadat days of Fatima Zahra AS and during the Holy Month of Muharram and Safar. I'm sure that I forgot to put it back. It's there now.
  9. Looking for a Cleric ( shaikh ) in Canada

    Salam. There is another topic here: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235049742-canadian-sheikhs/?sortby=date
  10. Imam Hussein AS said: “Do not say, about your brother [in faith], when he is absent, except what you would like him to say about you during your absence.” Shaykh al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 127
  11. Love for Mola Abbas a.s ibne Ali a.s

    Imam Sajjad (p) is reported to have said: “May God have mercy upon my uncle, al-Abbas (p). He preferred his brother [Imam Hussain (p)] over himself; he sacrificed himself for the sake of his brother until he lost his two hands. Thus, instead of his two hands, God will give him two wings with which he will fly with the angels in Paradise, just like Jafar ibn Abi Talib (p). In the sight of God, the Blessed, the Exalted, al-Abbas (p) enjoys a [special] rank on the day of Resurrection, and all the martyrs will desire a similar one.” [Shaykh al-Sadooq, al-Khisal p. 68]
  12. Imam Zayn al-Abidin (p) said to his son Muhammad ibn Ali (p), ‘Do [good] to everyone who asks for it. If [they] are deserving of it you have [achieved your goal], and if [they] are not deserving of it, you are worthy of doing good. If a person reviled you from your right side, then turned to your left and apologized, accept his apology.’ (Ibn Abi Shuba al-Harrany, Tuhaf al-Uqool, p. 409)
  13. May Allah SWT lengthen the life of our noha and nasheed reciters in order to increase the love for Ahlul Bayt AS.

  17. #32 Favorite Subforums?

    Salam. I much prefer to participate at ShiaChat through my computer, and most members have no problem using their computer to interact with ShiaChat. In order to explain how to navigate ShiaChat using a cell phone, I logged into ShiaChat with my phone. As you are reading this topic, in the Polls subforum, at the bottom of the topic, if there are more than 25 posts you would need to click on the NEXT button to see page 2 replies. When you finish reading a thread, at the bottom there are two options: 1) GO TO TOPIC LISTING, which goes back to the same subforum that you are in. If you are in the Guest Lounge, it says GO TO QUESTION LISTING. 2) NEXT UNREAD TOPIC, which goes to the next topic that you have not read yet, in the same subforum. If you are in the Guest Lounge, it says NEXT UNREAD QUESTION. Another option is to scroll down to see the 5 topics at the bottom of the page, where someone replied very recently. These five topics can be from any forum, because they are the most recent. If you have been reading for several minutes in this topic, you can refresh the page and see that those 5 topics might not be the same 5, because while you were reading the other topics have been active. If you don't want to read and reply to any of those 5 topics, scroll up to the top of the page and click on the Menu which looks like 3 bars. See this image: When you click on that, you have a multitude of choices. You can click all Forums to read all forums and subforums. Of course you can click on your Account, Ask a Question (Guest Lounge), Chat, Blogs, Clubs, Activity, Leaderboard or About Us. Everything is right in one place for you.

  19. Minimalism

    Two years ago I became a minimalist. I'm not talking about music, sculpture or painting, but minimalism in my life. I read about creating a minimalist home, but I did not buy the book: http://zenhabits.net/a-guide-to-creating-a-minimalist-home/ So, I am thrifty and I buy very little. Whenever I am shopping and see a dozen things I want to own, I question myself. Do I have storage space for this? Is this really necessary? Will I really love it or is it just something that I never had before and always wanted to have one? Just wanting to possess something is not a good reason to buy it. Could I take a photo of it and just look at it, without spending my money? This must be a good reason to join Pinterest, to have all the things you want to look at, but never need to buy, store or move them. As you have seen, my ShiaChat blog is minimalist by nature. I usually say very little, because if there is one thing that I know, it is that I recognize great writing when I see it, but I am not a good writer. I hope to become a better writer some day, and in the meantime, I invite you to my tumblr. Please, if you can, start at the last page which shows my first post (a prayer for the safety of 12th Imam AJ) and then scroll your way up, and over to previous pages in chronological order, the way my brain was working. http://hameedeh.tumblr.com/page/3 ♥ May your days be sunny, your nights restful, and your heart satisfied with the blessings that Allah has given you. Think Positive. ♥

  22. I want more Emoticons!

    When you were looking for the "Respectfully Disagree" reaction @Reza was changing it, so you didn't see it. Respectfully Disagree is still there.
  23. Oneness of Allah

    Sin is disobeying Allah SWT. Shirk is idolatry.
