Ramadan Mubarak Everyone!!

From what I have observed, theses are the different types of users that exist in Shiachat according to me.

1) The Hadith Ones - There are plenty of these. They have great structured answers where the hadith starts in Arabic followed by English translation.

2) The Comedians - They always havr to give straightforward and funny replies. These users manage to sneak humour in literally every post, even the ones with serious content.

3) The Therapist- These users are not much in number but I have noticed some. These users are very good in making other users feel better by showing empathy in comments. These users offer great medical and psychological advice.

4) The Sunni-Shia Obsessed Users- These users are obsessed with questioning Sunnis and majority of their content revolves around this.

5) Political Dudes- Obsessed with politics as the name suggests.

6) Creepy Likers- Lol they don't post much content, however they like everyones comment. Shiachat doesn't lack much of these.

7) Responsible Ones- Mainly the mature users who are always reliable to turn to in advice concerning social/family issues.

8) The Fatwa Ones- Don't mess with these users because they will catch you out with various fatwas of different scholars. 

9) Cool Science Users- Their mind revolves around science. These users are very interesting and come up with all these cool posts.

10) Spiritual/Dreamy Users- These are in their own dream world. These users might also be great poets.

Pretty sure their are many more types , but I could only think of these.

Feel free to fit yourself in any category.

@hasanhh would you be #11, the eccentric uncle who sometimes conveys great wisdom in the guise of foolishness? 

Excused to the hallway, l see. I spent most of 2nd grade there so that is nothing new.

l thought l'd be identified as a "radical Islamic moderate" [:dwarf:<--"Behave Yourself" ],  or an "extreme eccentric"  :egg:

I think that you're missing "legendary McLegends" as #11. They're amazing people and I would love to have one as a friend. Intelligent, kind, humble and all-round fantastic people.

I'm not saying that I'm one of them, but there's reports of a 13th century Arabic poem held in the British Museum that starts "سيله، سيله، و ما ادراك من هو سيله"....

It was apparently translated by some famous orientalists (they compiled a book of poems on legendary Arab people) as "Sila, Sila, and what will make you realise who Sila is....?"

    • Over the last 40 years, we have seen an increase in income inequality, especially in the US, with wages stagnating for a large majority of the population, but profits for corporations continuing to grow exponentially, this was obviously dealt a blow in the financial crisis, but the mechanisms in place to fix the crisis largely continued to promote neoliberal, state capitalism. The federal reserve, which I believe is criticised unfairly is largely a mechanism in place to fix problems within a very highly flawed system. You need a body that has to regulate banks and interest rates, otherwise you would have a situation that is even worse, where banks would continually just collude and set rates in a way that benefits them. The problem however is that, the Fed's mechanisms only empower the same system that has done damage to so many people's lives. By promoting bank bailouts, which then just give the bank the insurance that they can continue to do whatever they want, and the government will just continue to bail them out, they have no much incentive to act differently. Financial reform and regulation have been implemented since the financial crisis but these aren't enough, and the bailouts only led to bank CEOs giving themselves higher bonuses. But the question is how do you fix the system? If you don't bail the banks out, you leave millions unemployed, you make small business reliant on banks for short-term financing shut down. If you don't print money and you don't increase the deficit, you get rid of the few ways in a flawed economic system to boost the economy. So how do you fix it? More regulation? Do you make the Federal Open Market Committee meetings more public, but then that just allows political influence and gives more power to a very corrupt congress to make decisions, when you can't exactly trust them either? There have been attempts to make other currency systems like bitcoin, but on a national level what is a good solution? To centralise the banks completely would be a good idea but its just giving power to corrupt lawmakers who are bought by corporate interests. 
    • I think an important question that nobodies asked is what kind of relationship do you have with your sister?  If you're not super close and just come out of nowhere with all these rules shes going to rebel and your parents could get involved- telling you to stay out of it. If this happens- she might think its okay because her parents are defending her.  If you're not close, then maybe this is an opportunity to be. Try and be really open and non judgemental and find out why she doesn't wish to observe hijab. It may just be down to ignorance: she simply doesn't know its importance in islam. You'd be surprised what kind of interesting conversations you'd have.  My brothers beliefs are fairly different to mine and fairly often we have interesting discussions/debates about all kinds of topics. He's also very open minded so I feel reassurance/comfort if I ever need to ask advice or information about a certain topic. 
    • Salaam, I have a difficult time finding things related to Sayed Khamenei on the internet-would you by chance be able to provide a link for the mentioned Q&A, in sha Allah? Thanks!
    • It's simple., One sect follows Islam as Allah swt and His Prophet (pbuh) wanted Muslims to follow while the other one is trying to tell Allah swt and the Prophet pbuh what they think should be part of Islam. So if you follow the former then you know you are on Haq and if you are following the latter then you are doomed. Allah swt states in Quran that only He appoints Caliphs. If you look at one sect they abide by it where as the other one have their own man-made Caliphs clearly against the Quran. It's really not that difficult.
