To Which Country You Would Immigrate And....?

Recommended Posts

Wa alaikum assalam. 

 

It's hard to choose between Canada and Australia, although I chose the former. 

 

Canada is cold for the most part, but the people seem very cultured, quiet and peaceful. The country is diverse and immigration is still welcome. If something goes terribly wrong, you can move to other countries on the continent. Although that can be a bad thing too in reverse, it's kind of close to the genocidal American military industry. 

 

Australia has had quite a long history of white-only immigration policy, but the weather is great and many people seem fun/relaxed now. Location-wise they're isolated from the rest of the world and pretty unique as a result, but for some reason despite not having enough people on their vast continent-sized country, not as open to immigration anymore (at least in political rhetoric). The pay scales are relatively good. 

 

The warmongering US is an obvious no go.

 

If you're qualified and have a choice I'd strongly recommend Ireland. It seems to benefit from most of the above positives - friendly people, physically close to other countries and cultures, sensible attitudes towards religious choices, and the weather is not too harsh. Irish people have a strong history of resisting the British occupation specifically, and a fairly neutral (non-aligned) foreign policy in general. They have an educated population, and well-informed about the current affairs in the rest of the world.

Australia - good weather, lots of other immigrants.

 but recently I am tired of living in a western country, and every person I know regrets coming to the UK, everything is upside down.

 

Hope to live in Iran or Iraq in the future. To me they seem good now but it might be a different story when I go there.

Thank you brother for your good insight and analysis. I appreciate that. I would probably immigrate to Canada, because of many reasons. I have heard that Canadians care very much about money only, but not sure in reality. I hope also to live in Iraq in the future, hope things will get better, which doesn't seem to be, at least for now.

What's your purpose of travelling to Iraq or Iran? Would you live next to al-Hussain (as) ?

Salam, akhi.

Its a dream of mine to study at Najaf, I will first go and study in Qom for a few years because learning Farsi would be easier and I can understand it, when I become fluent in Arabic ill move to Najaf. So I am interested in studying, also I have met Iranians and their culture is similar to mine, also they are good people and my dads spent some time with Iraqi's in Iran and he says they are well mannered and generally good people. I know they are far better than the English. People here in the UK are the worst, their culture and customs are not for me or for any other Muslim.

 

The people in Afghanistan are mostly tribal worshipers, they see their tribe 1st and religion 2nd, which is frustrating, in the past Civil wars, the so called shia of Afghanistan (Hazara people) have fought openly in wars against 3 shia Ayatollahs, which shows how much they care for religion and Allah's Ayats. So my birthplace can't be my final resting place, living among them would either make me oppressed, crazy or dead.

 

I hope to settle in Iraq, marry and raise a family, if not there then Iran.

 

How comes you ask?

Yes it does - I thought you could arabic?

I can't speak Arabic and I can barely read the Quran in Arabic, I read books in english, I would love to learn Arabic though. My mother tongue is Dari, but I am basic at that.

That's why I will study Arabic in Iran in Qom before I go to Iraq, as I understand Farsi already

 

Well brother you have lots of time to learn. If you would go to Iraq, have you thought to live there after isis have been swept off the map?

USA. The other two nations are smaller in population and too remote for my taste.

 

I agree about Australia being remote but if you're in the US, Canada is just next door.

Why would I immigrate? I would like to see the whole world as a tourist though.

 

My sentiments. Don't want to leave my country for good but want to visit dozens of other countries to see the world. I do that already, alhamdulillah.

 

But you never know when things become too difficult in one's own native country. Then one has to migrate to save his life and that of his family.

I would prefer to retreat to the mountains. My county means my country. May Lord bless us all with his mercy and

 

keep us from such situations.

If you go to Quebec or New Brunswick you need french, but in parts of Toronto, Vaughan and Mississauga Arabic, Chinese, Farsi and Urdu are more helpful :hahaha:

    • First of all, this entitlement mentality is not going to help you. I am entitled to an explanation. Second, No one owes you and explanation. Its your life, you figure it out. You and I have the same capabilities, by saying prove it to me, You are inherently acknowledging your inferiority/limits. That alone is sufficient for you to stop and reflect. We can point you to stuff, but its you who will make the final decision.  You have limits, you did not create yourself or whats around you, so something/someone did. Since you are a creation, as everything around you and you yourself(physical systems are guided), you must receive guidance. Find that guidance... ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِلْمُتَّقِينَ {2} [Shakir 2:2] This Book, there is no doubt in it, is a guide to those who guard (against evil).
      [Pickthal 2:2] This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil).
      [Yusufali 2:2] This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah;
    • In Kitab al Tawheed by Sheik Saduq (ra) about the first chapter: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Whoever dies without ascribing a partner to Allah, will enter Heaven regardless of weather he has done good or evil." * * In Bukhari, The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: "People must suffer the burning of Hell-Fire as a punishment for the sins they committed. Afterwards Allah will admit them to Paradise with His Grace and Mercy. So they will be called al-Jahanamiyyun." ---- This is also from Imam Ali (as) who said: The Prince of Believers, 'Ali, on whom be peace, was asked: Describe death to us. He said: You have, indeed, accidentally come to one who is well informed! It (death) brings to the person dying one of three things - either tidings of perpetual bliss, or of everlasting misery, or fear and dread, or an uncertainty (amrun mubhamun), if he (the dying person) does not know to which section he belongs. Now as for our friend and the follower of our command, he will be the recipient of the good tidings of perpetual bliss; and as for our enemy and one who opposed our claim, he will be given tidings of eternal misery: but one whose affair is doubtful, that is one who does not know his own mind, he is a believer who is prodigal regarding his own affairs (al-mu'amin al-musrif 'ala nafsihi), not knowing what his condition will be. Good comes to him after doubt and dread. Then Allah will never mingle him with our enemies, but will take him out of the Fire by our intercession. So act (righteously) and obey (Allah) and do not rely solely upon yourselves, and do not belittle the punishment of Allah. For verily, he, who does not obtain our intercession except after 300,000 years of Allah's chastisement, is to be counted amongst the wasteful (musrifin) ---- Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (as) said: "Verily, Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, has given the Believers a gurantee." I asked, "What is it?" He replied: "If a Believer professes his faith in Allah's Divinity, Muhammad's Prophethood, and 'Ali's Imamate, and carries out his duties, He guarantees him eternal life in His Presence [jiwar],  I said: "By Allah! This is a blessing with which none of the blessings bestowed upon the sons of Adan can compare." Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (as) replied, "They have done little but they have enjoyed much."
    • Brother, Have you tried to verify the hadiths with the verses of quran by some research? or  Do you like to reject he authentic hadith like hadith rejecter? The verification of the hadith of the prophet saaw in the light of verses of quran through the research has already been conducted as mentioned in the thread the  link is given below: This efficiently provides  the evidences for confirmation of the fact that the verse of purification covers the prophet saww his daughter, and 12 Imams. ie 14 persons. The saved sect 1 out of 73 as per hadith of the prophet saaw follows his purified progeny. wasalam
    • Yeah man, I'm offended by such ridiculous words of Yasir Qadhi. I finally got an answer as to, why he doesn't believe in Imamah etc
    • As I said I do not believe in this mentality. I said it's an invaluable job. Of course I do support women who participate in society and and work with Hijab. It's self esteem and a good picture of Islam. Somebody said that men use their money(I don't believe in their money. It's our money) on their own whims. I do not believe this. A good man buys everything that his wife needs within Islamic rules and his budget. Why not doing that really? Of course forcing on something like buying stuff is childish behaviour. I feel there's a deviation from the main topic. Differences between eastern and western marriage is my point. Working was just an example.
