Here at ShiaChat.com, we have one unifying goal: to seek out the Truth. It doesn’t matter what faith you do (or don’t) adhere to, what race you belong to, how many years you have tucked under your belt or what your philosophy in life is. As long as you’re eager to exchange thoughts, explore new concepts or gain a better understanding of Islam, you’ll be right at home on this board.

ShiaChat.com welcomes individuals from all walks of life and and there exists a diverse mix of cultures and ideologies amongst our members. Consequently, we have over 25 forums spanning a wide variety of subjects ranging from the social aspects of an Islamic community to philosophical inter-faith debates.

You can discuss politics, history, current affairs, business, sports, women’s issues, health – and even find solutions to everyday problems at our Community Helpdesk! Whatever you enjoy talking about, you won’t be hard-pressed to find a niche to fit into here.

Islam is currently the fastest growing religion in the world, but unfortunately many non-Muslims don’t understand why. Drop into our Reverts forum to witness from a first-person perspective why so many are entering the fold of Islam and choosing the Ja’fari School of Thought*. You’ll probably be pleasantly surprised, and perhaps even inspired by what there is to find.

We have over 50,000 active registered users as of 2016 and plenty of people are dropping in to see what all the fuss is about, with more than 50,000 hits a day. We agree that it might be hard to keep up with the thousands of new posts that go up every week, but because the board is so easy to navigate, you should have no trouble selecting the ones you do want to track.

At ShiaChat.com we believe in sharing the wonderful secrets to success that Islam has to offer humanity, and we know that this can only happen when people have an open forum to air their opinions and learn from one another. We look forward to hearing your voice in our midst.

Enter in peace.

The Ja’fari School of Thought is one followed by the Shia Ithna Asheri (literally meaning Followers of the Twelve). One of the two major sects in Islam, the Shia believe in the 12 Imams who were Divinely appointed to succeed the Prophet Muhammad (s) and protect the Final Message of God - Islam.

History of ShiaChat.com

A look back at ShiaChat.com

Originally started as a small homepage for a Shia IRC room in 1998, ShiaChat.com has slowly transformed to be the largest Shia discussion forum on the net. On March 26, 2000, launching for the very first time as an independent, dedicated discussion forum hosted on the EZboard network, Ahlulbayt Discussion Forum rapidly became a great success due to the help and support of its members and development team alike. To help build a bigger frame and infrastructure for the rapid growth of this community, In 2003, ShiaChat.com was for the first time transferred on it’s on server using it’s own hosted software that would allow for further expansion and growth. Along with it being a Discussion forum, a live Chatroom was also added by popular demands after a few months.

How to become part of the team.

Anyone can help and contribute to make this site a success. However, if anyone wishes to become an official Moderator or an Administrator, they must be an active member showing great dedication to Islam and this site in general. You will be approached by the ShiaChat.com team when you’ve qualified and when an addition to the administration team is needed.
