Surprise!!!!

Basically, the previous subforum structure was fine 12 years ago when SC had a lot more traffic. But now there isn't nearly enough activity to justify 45 subforums (literally). The old sections also had a lot of overlap, and some sections were completely inactive.

Merging forums like this does not help people who go to a particular place to look for a thread they saw a few years ago. Activity may have decreased but this place could remain a repository for those who search for information within certain categories.

Edit:

Is there any way to find which section a thread belonged to?

Anyhow perhaps this will make for a better forum.

I'm lost. Can we get a pinned post mapping which forums went where?

The description underneath each subforum title should help you with that. When work is done, I can do that though if you want.

There's still some cleanup to be done.

:dry: I'm sure we will all be able to figure it out. I just don't like change. I don't even like when people I see regularly get a haircut. It's just different from what I'm used to.

It had to be done. This was long overdue.

May Allah reward the admins and whoever was involved in planning and executing this. We are the only active shia forum online.

The survival and health of this forum in representing muhammed wa ale muhammed [asws] on the medium of the internet and providing a medium for shia's [and non-shia's] is of great importance.

Having been on a number of islamic forums [mainly sunni ones] this is definitely the best one there.

Science and technology impacts society, but it's definitely not a society issue! Everything that matters impacts society! Jurisprudence and Islamic History fit in a Society subforum as well as science does.

Streamlining is great, sure, efficient. Needs some adjustment.

Adjustment 1: put the poetry forum back. Why on earth would it be nuked? Makes no sense. It was always a slow burner in terms of content from way back even in the early 2000s.

Tip: if you've posted in a forum that used to exist, you can find it in its new location through your profile. That's how I found the science forum in society.

Tweak to streamlining: I suggest a forum which includes "academic" subjects like sciences, literature, art, philosophy, poetry, and other subjects that draw more serious but less prolific posters. Thinker's Discourse and/or moderated debates could be housed there too. Maybe call it "education" or "arts and sciences".

    • I wonder if it is enough for a person to believe in Islam until they die to be eternally in heaven eventually? I mean maybe a person would not believe if they were subject to torture but if they are not subject to torture they would believe. Must a Muslim believe no matter what or can they just rely on that if they believed in this life then they will someday enter heaven?

      I m 28yrs old .I started praying since last year. I was not knowing the importance of praying.My parents never told me to pray .They were only after my studies.I was busy in my life not knowing the real purpose if life  . I new nothing about what are the duties of muslim. Then Allah guided me at the age of 27 and i started going to masjid . Now i regret why was i so far away from my deen for so many years.Some questions kill me everyday ..Why didnt allahs guidance came early .? .I have to make up for so many prayers.i have asked Allah for forgiveness .Why i hav to still make up?. Is it too late age to get guided ?  Like i have done nothing no namaz no roza ..when my parents never told me about deen how am i responsible ? Now i ask Allah for forgiveness why i still have to make up for qada ?? If i make niyat of making qada after some years is it ok  or i hav to start praying qada ??When were u ppl guided to do these things ? I am feeling very bad..Whatever we learn from childhood imprints in heart ..i have learnt nothing..share ur views please
    • This is not possible because this is a breach of the basis of unity. When its decided that we are not going to discuss about our beliefs. Scholars can sit together and discuss all this but this can't be done in a public scenario.
    • Quran has not talked about the punishment of Apostaty in this world. But we have Sahih hadeeths from Imams. Quran doesn't tell everything explicitly.  When Imam Ali said that "all secrets and knowledge is condensed in Quran" then it means we can't access it but they can. So its better to be satisfied with the hadeetha and Marajes have done a lot of study to accept these hadeeth and Law. And you're not being killed for your belief but your action. Flee to any other Non Muslim country and you're free but if you harm Muslim society by your Apostasy then you are ought to be killed as you are a corrupter.
