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.

- Saturday Nights at Arncliffe Mosque there is a Majlis

- 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

    • This suggestion really depends on how likely you will get a broken jaw. You can do mutah with a no-sex arrangement. [And with the change in Australian law, say you will do it with a girl if necessary --suggested as scare-tactic.] Now, a similar situation was/is near me. The oldest is constantly abused by her father (he is on medication). Here is one  small  example: After she graduated college -and she lived ate home while attending- she got into medical school where she then lived about 200 miles away. Once when she was home, her father got hold of her smart phone and started calling everyone on her contact list to ask about any sexual activity, drinking and so forth. The list included her advisor.
    • Off-hand l'd say two of your options are: 1] Take him to small-claims court and use the courts 'judgment cap' (e.g. $2500 in some states) and claim this portion is past due if he owes more than $2500.  Then go-for-the-rest later (if necessary  ) 2] Write him off your taxes as a "bad debt" and send a report to a credit reporting agency. Also, if he put the money into a business, then go to the BBB and see if their complaint dep't can help.
    • hi in my opinion the main problem between sunni &shia is about their claiming of supremacy to  each other for shias their Imams are martyred and according to  below verses when we call them they answer us and all of them 100% beneficial to us but sunni leaders were ordinary people & sunnis bro&sis dont call them as martyrs  so whats their benefit for them as you see in  verse 12  And of the people is he who worships Allah on an edge. If he is touched by good, he is reassured by it; but if he is struck by trial, he turns on his face [to the other direction]. He has lost [this] world and the Hereafter. That is what is the manifest loss. (11) He invokes instead of Allah that which neither harms him nor benefits him. That is what is the extreme error. (12) He invokes one whose harm is closer than his benefit - how wretched the protector and how wretched the associate. (13)Indeed, Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow. Indeed, Allah does what He intends. (14) Whoever should think that Allah will not support [Prophet Muhammad] in this world and the Hereafter - let him extend a rope to the ceiling, then cut off [his breath], and let him see: will his effort remove that which enrages [him]? (15) Al-Hajj◄  333  ►Juz 17 http://tanzil.net/#22:11
