Salam Ozzie,

What do you mean torn apart? How so?

Im part of the youth and am very excited, I really do not see the cracks opening up,rather other way around. I fel as if the youth are trying to throw their parents mentality and adopting a new and better one.

I really feel the youth is much less political then the oldies.

It's a shame here in sydney we have a young muslim community, but its torn apart, u can start seeing the cracks opening up

- Saturday Nights at Arncliffe Mosque there is a Majlis

- Saturday Nights at Arncliffe Public School , seminars gvien by Haj Mohammad Mehdi ( http://ansaralmahdi.net/ )

- First week of every month, there is Sheikh Jeehad Ismail coming to talk in Athelstane Public School

- Sheikh Jeehad Ismail has a class on Wednesday Night at Nabi Akram(sawws) center in Granville

- Sheikh Mansoor in Earlwood (IHIC) have Lessons on Friday Nights also. More info from http://www.ihic.org.au/

Hey thats excellent if you feel the community aint about to be torn apart. I am involved a little with the youth, and from where i am standing the outlook is very dark unless something quickly is done. Yes kumail i was aware of all the programs you have listed, also you might like to mention Sheik Zaid Alsalami - who has over a decade of education from Qum. Inshallah Kher

Take care and in good health

Sheik ZAID, not Zain.. lol... well his starting a islamic theology class at IHIC on thursday nights, actually the orientation night was last night, but i am sure you can still get in if you want. Yeah the liverpool programs are rather wishy washy, they normally have it once a month and sheik Jihad normally speaks in them but recently i havent heard much coz Sheik Jihad is back in nabi akram centre at granville. If u think about it, here in Australia especially in Sydney we have some if not the best english speaking ulema.. on the day of judgement were not gonna have good excuses with the likes of Sheik Jihad, Sheik Mansour, Sheik Zaid and Sayyid Mehdi... wow thats some list. The irony is we still get the others comming like, Sheik Arif, Sheik Mustafa Jafar, Sayyid Muhammed Rivzi and offcourse the master of speaches Sir Rajabali ;)

Take care and in good health

Salam,

hey it was late. Its not like I dont know sheikh zaid!

Oh i see so it must be only the iraqis that have their progs in fairfield sometimes.

When did Rizvi come?

oh and isnt there the pakistani husseiniya at grandville. Do you know if thats still functioning? I think they used to be in campsie.. maybe they still are.

Salams,

Sister Ozzie, I know exactly what you are talking about! The only thing capable of tearing our community apart is the big I****. Man it creeps me.

But some people believe it and others dont. The scholars have nothing against each other (I know that in person) and as usual it is probably the followers of each side trying to prove that they are right.

Obviously that provides hatred because everybody wants to think they are right. I for one have freinds on both sides of the border, and the best way to deal with it is to pull the personalities out of the equation and study the concepts. I am against the big I, and would rather not take part in it. As for other that want to, they are still my brothers and sisters.

People need to lighten up and stop pointing the fingers, because the scholars dont.

Firstly i am a brother not a sister, and before we start talking about the "I" issue, i wish i could agree that the scholars involved have no problems with each other... I too have friends from both sides and i can see the lack of trust and brotherhood they have for each other... Sister rafidite, i was pullin ur leg! i know it was a typo... Sayyed rizvi went to melbourne during Muharum. As for the pakis... i really aint sure coz i aint one! But your right they do have a place in granville but thats all in urdu and there is another one also in campsie which is a totally different organisation.

Take care and in good health

    • So I'm not sure based on what data you're suggesting that emotional dependence or love amongst partners in the East is more than the West? Where exactly are you getting this information that this is a western culture female issue? That's a specific example but actually for the most part I'd say females want to spend more time with their partners and need more attention than vice versa. To my knowledge, this has been supported by studies, hence, the stereotypical term "clingy" is used usually for females. Generally what we know about female psychology conflicts your specific example, so the trend is not what you say necessarily. Regardless, emotional dependence is very individual and couple dependent. Some people are more independent emotionally and others aren't. Thus, why two good people may not be compatible with each other in marriage. This is not evidenced supported but I actually think Western society can be more isolating (especially when you're Muslim) so it would logically make sense to turn to a spouse more. There's always something social happening in Eastern countries, if anything the men and women are socializing and spending time with other people that are not their partners more than in the West.
