Salam,

Almost 6 months since I joined Shiachat and it has helped me a lot, looking back now. I randomly came across this site out of nowhere when I was researching about Shia faith, and after some time I decided to join the forum. I joined the forum in order to be connected to the Shia community and learn more about our sect. I also wanted to stay away from sins and thought this site would help. I actually have more non-muslim friends, so it is very refreshing and nice to connect with like-minded Shias around the world who have similar life goals through this website. Before joining Shiachat I wouldn't really have that urge to develop my iman due to the environment I was in.

Since then I have had an urge to learn more about Islam and it has really helped me to stay away from sins. The thought of sinning doesn't come now compared to before because, I don't want to be giving people advice and on the other hand be sinning. Shiachat is a community and what I got out of it is just amazing.

So yeah, I would like to formally thank all the Administrators here and also the users who are making this experience. You all are part of this great cause and don't underestimate how many people's life it can change. 

:)

Salam Ali-fatheroforphans,

Shiachat helps me learn more about Shia Islam, as well as learn why some people think differently:

1.) from people of my belief (Christianity)

2.) and/or from my culture (American)

3.) and/or from me.

Peace and God bless you

Salamu Alaikum @ali_fatheroforphans.

Shiachat helped me in many ways, learning information, chatting with others about related issues, etc.

The main two things that I think stuck out the most from my 2 months here, are helping people who were oppressed or are having problems, and clearing debates with my friends and family ( getting answers from knowledgeable brothers and sisters from shiachat ).

:)

Many years ago when I joined, I was very opinionated but did not realize it. Over time, I understood that other people have a different opinion on some issues, and I began to try to see things from their point of view. This is how ShiaChat helped me.

Back in 2009 I was stubborn. Now I am willing to listen to everyone and respect their views. :D

1)Learning about Islam more and strengthening my faith! 

2)A place where I can ask anything I am confused about.

3)Fun/Hospitable people.

4)A place to see more Shias in the world, I needed that, everyone was just like "Shias are going to disappear soon" lol.

5)Whenever I am Sad/Depressed/Angry I would come here just to chat.

6)I started learning how to speak/contact/connect with people more wisely and I also learned Philosophy and Sciences here, the place urged me to do so, now I am science/philosophy fanatic/enthusiast.

Salam. Just participate in the forums where you want. I usually check the Guest Lounge because I know there are a lot of questions waiting to be answered. Also the Jurisprudence and Islamic Law always needs help to answer questions.

Salaam brother and welcome to SC,

I would recommend avoiding me at all times. I am rude, obnoxious, sarcastic and short-tempered. Other than that, I am a great guy. I am just kidding...hehehe

SC made me realize that as shias we have a lot of similar opinions but also differing opinions. I learned the hard way but treat people with the respect ShiaChat deserves, regardless of whether the person deserves or not.

Looking forward to learning from you.

    • Oh actually I live in a little nowhereville, but it's part of a metro area that just crosses the million population mark. I might have voted wrong. 
    • May Allah bless you and forgive your sins, Tib Al-A’imma: http://www.duas.org/tibb.htm
    • سبحان الله The soul and body are separate of each other, Humans have free will, when they talk ill about Allah, they cannot harm Him, for it is their desire to do so. And We will turn their hearts and their sights, even as they did not believe in it the first time, and We will leave them in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on. Every Angel has a specific task, One obeys Allah alone, One causes the rain, One searches for people that remember Allah, One is upon the shoulders of a Believer for defending him against the Accursed Shaytan, And by Allah, They do not have senses like pain equal to us, But they are limited in knowledge, When Allah calls them for a task, They shall execute His will, But they can fall in misunderstanding the orders, like Iblees refused to prostrate to Adam, He did not prostrate because he felt himself far superior than a mortal of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape. I am not such that I should make obeisance to a mortal whom Thou hast created of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape. From this, you know that the human has free will, and it is Allah who guides whom He wills, And you shall understand that this life is a test, from your birth to the final stages of life, Where the Shaytan tries it’s last time to deviate you from the Right Path. And We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, verifying what is before it of the Book and a guardian over it, therefore judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their low desires (to turn away) from the truth that has come to you; for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way, and if Allah had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you), so He will let you know that in which you differed. For Allah has made this life a test for the people, He brought Messengers and Prophets to every Ummah, To notify of His Greatness and Mercy, But some wander blindly in their own ignorance, Ignorance in wordly desires, So much, that when the Heavens are shown to them, They believe these are clouds on top of one another.
