As-salamu 3alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatouh

There is this hadith that I found in French (couldn't find it in english): « N'est pas non plus de nos Chiites celui qui habite une ville de cent mille habitants ou davantage, parmi lesquels il y a quelqu'un qui est plus pieux que lui » 

Which means: « Isn't part of our Shias, the one who lives in a city with 100000 inhabitants or more, which there is in that city someone that is more pious than him »

Does that mean alot of us aren't shias? Thank you.

Nor is it of our Shi'ites who lives in a city of a hundred thousand or more inhabitants, among whom there is someone who is more pious than him


Man we don't follow our Prophet (SAWW) and Imams (a.s) as we should.

    • I just wanted to mention something to prevent confusion. This is OK only if he is engaged  BY RELIGION. Otherwise, it's Haram and not acceptable.
    • Specifically porn is destructive in future marital relations. I honestly feel ashamed how some people believe in these false stereotypes found in the porn industry, where both men and women have exaggerated features that have little to do with normality. They believe in these stereotypes and then expect them in their partners, to the point they even dare to bring the subject in public. And I prefer to stop it here because it is embarassing.
    • Condolences on the shahadat of Imam Hassan Mujtaba AS. Imam Hasan (a.s.) said: Translation I wonder about those who think about their body’s food, but do not think about their soul’s food. They keep undesirable food away from their belly, but fill up their heart with destructive subjects.1 Brief Description Our people are usually quite careful with their food and do not start eating unless they know what it is. They avoid anything that looks doubtful and some go to great lengths to ensure that the body receives good, clean, healthy diet. Yet, when it comes to the food for the soul, these same individuals will throw caution to the winds. With eyes closed, unaware of the reality, they would have no hesitation in pouring down any mental food into their soul. They harm their souls by accepting without question the speeches of unsuitable friends, misleading press reports and suspicious or poisonous propagation, and this is very surprising. 1. Safinat’ul-Bihar 84, article of taste.
