I come from Singapore. I didn't know there are arab shias in Singapore. That's amazing, because all of the arabs we know follow the mainstream sunni faith and speak Malay, not Arabic. Bro Ihsan Albaity, are all your family and relatives shia? Do you go to the Imam Barghah conducted by the Malay group?

jazakallah. (p.s. i'm not trying to track you down :) i'm in australia btw)

Yeah Umhasal (im not sure if ur a bro or a sis. :P dont mine me)i do help out with the malay community at Imam Bargha and Hussainiyah Azzahrah... We do have a few arab family who are Shia .. but u cant tell the diffrence btween the malays and the arabs .. they look almost a like ... as for me my grandfather is from Hadralmaut, Yamen ... We dont really know his mazhab as he might do Taqiyaah .... So Umhasan ur from the Urdu speaking community??

salam ya waladi Ihsan

I am mother of Hasan..so that makes me an 'auntie' to you :D . No, we are not from the Urdu speaking family. We are Chinese..'fwend' here is my son...we are chinese shias. I think if you were to ask your parents, they would know us...as we were the only Chinese Shia in singapore. At the moment, we are also the only Chinese shia in Melbourne :) . However, my children do not speak chinese at all, and they know only about 20 Malay words, except for my eldest girl, who now happily speaks Malay with some Singaporean friends from Monash University where she studies. Only my husband speaks all the Chinese dialects.

nice meeting you here Ihsan. Take care

Hi Ehsan, I'm from the North. My family is from among the sympathizers of the cause of Ahlul-Bayt. We were originally Sunnah Wal-Jammah.

It's a good thing in Singapore that you guys get to practice your faith Freely.

Auntie Umm Hassan, nice to meet you. I have a friend here who is Chinese, and her husband is an Egyptian Shia.

My friend who happens to be an Iraqi Sunni (in Malaysia) is preplexed why in Malaysia the people seem to "hate" Shias for some reason. He said in Iraq, they don't really care if you are a Sunni or Shia. I think this should be the case in Malaysia too. As long as you are Muslim, that's all that matters.

I think in Malaysia, 70% of the people are muqallidun of Sayyid Ali Khamenei (May Allah protect him). Sis Zareen, I believe, is a muqallid of Sayyid Ali Seestani (May Allah protect him). How about in Singapore?

Abu Ali (my son 's name is Ali)

Salamz,

145_turbo_16V ur from malaysia??Which part?.. I always wonder why they have such hateirate .. i tink its becoz lack of knowledge ... any way its amazing they can tolerate the non muslims but they cant tolerate muslims... Like in s'pore ... if there is a talk by non muslims or newly convert alot of ppl would turn up to hear but if we muslims have talks there would be less ppl .. like talks by our Senior Prime Minister on islam and terrorism , alot of ppl would turn up .. and when we have talks on Imam Ali and Nahjul Balagha .. only a very tiny number of ppl from the public would turn up ...

We in s'pore are mostly taqleed to Sayyid Ali Khamenei .. I think there are some who Taqleed to Sayyid Sistani..........i tink sis Zareen Taqleed to Sayed Fadullah .. i remember she telling us be4...

Ihsan, talk about being discreet! LOL!,now the whole world knows my husband's name!We actually thought of going back to Singapore this year, but with SARS around, we are err..postponing it for the time being. May I kindly know who your parents are? :D . please whisper it to my e-mail..i'm sure you still want to be an unknown entity to some of your singapore friends here :) .

Uncle Nabil had just recently spoken to Maulana Reza Pasha about a week ago. Maulana was in Perth visiting his daughter. if you can get Uncle to do an interview, that will be the day! ;) Anyway, his favourite past-time is surfing the net, and he's very up-to-date with the latest info. He dearly missed the jemaah in Imam Barghah. We hardly socialise here because we are a bit out..not belonging to Pakistani/Indian or Iraqi side.

Nevertheless, we still are happy because we have more freedom here, no 'tudung' (head-scarves) issue whatsoever. However, as in singapore and malaysia, the shias here are also considered as 'astray'. Can we ever change that? :donno:

I need you to do me a favour. could you please answer my survey questions in the Community Help forum under 'need help for assignment'? Jazakallah khairan.

Also do you have any 9-10 yr sister? (this goes for all readers, not just Ihsan). My daughter would like to have an e-pal.

take care

Maulana Reza Pasha? I wonder if he knows our local alim here, whom I think is also from Bangalore. He is Dr. Nabi Raza Abidi. He was head of the Jaafari school of fiqh studies at Aligarh Uni in India.

Dr. Nabi is also familiar with the Shia scene in Malaysia, he has contacts there.

OPPSSSS ... im sowie .. i didnt mean any ting bad .. anyway afwan for me revealing ur husband's name... :unsure:

AS for me im proud to be my parents SON... any way Ihsan is my real name hehehe. My dad is Othman Sheik Omar aka Habib and my mom Is Roziah ... :angel:

Maulana is back here in S'pore from Perth ... His is in an unwell condition. His slip disc is getting bad .. he was suppose to go back to Banglore yesterday nite but extended it to Wednesday 4th June.

However, as in singapore and malaysia, the shias here are also considered as 'astray'. Can we ever change that?....
Some of them dont even know wat mazhab they are follows.. ended up becoming a Wahabi .. comming up with they own fatwah etc ..

if ur intrested u can read up at Qiblaa.net a S'pore base website .. we hare having a heated argument there.. the discussion is secluded and public wouldnt be able to access it as they said they want to protect the Iman and the Faith of Kidos and Newbies in Islam. They call it the Q-ZONE.. whci to me sounds like Quarantine ZONE... any way if ur intrested u would need to register with them and follow tis link Q-zone and post ur request to gain access there...

Thats gd that u dont have those tudung issues etc!.. just becoz s'pore is multicultural country ... the Mufti and MUIS agree with the government so as to keep the harmony of S'pore .. I tink Hujjatul Islam Sheik Md Rosli made ur family an exmple regarding the tudung Issue.. hehehehe

OKLAH ... it seems i have talk alot here .. until next time ..

wabillah hi taufiq wal hidaya assalamunalaikum...

:D

Salam,

sorry to interrupt ur lively chatting.

i'm m'sian and s'pore is my kampong & live in kl. i believe the others (sunni) are alarmed due to the differences (shiite own holy cities, kalimah, adzn, prayer, self mutilation, taqiyyah, mutaah, view on sahabas and prophet's wives etc)

i think that answers why the mainstream feel suspicious on shiites...

Let them be suspicious, and let them be free to find answers, so you cannot ban books written by scholars (which was done recently). Also let's not imprison people based on faith. Most Malaysian Shias I know only want to practice without having to look behind their shoulders all the time. Yes I've met some Shias who just love to harp on the differences between Sunnis and Shias, but nowhere near the numbers which proclaim that Shias are kuffar, especially the younger youths from PAS. Unlike Nik Aziz which completely dismissed the notion that Shias are kuffar.

LIke their Holy sites, the 2 holiest sites are still Mecca and Medina, nobody can deny that. But Kerbala is still a holy site. The person who is buried there is the master of the youths in heaven.

But if you do want to discuss about this issue I suggest it is done on another section of the forum.

Nope, i do not want to debate with you. You notice that I do not go into Shia/Sunni Dialogue forum. Debating is not my cup of coffee.

Just like the Arabs, there are mainstream malays, moderate muslim, secular malays, christian malays (at least in certain part of kl & s'pore) and yeah communist and free thinker malays (professional) and shiite malays.

Chow!!

Hujjatul Islam Sheik Md Rosli ? Did he study in Qum? I was told by my local Alim here that there were many Malaysians in Qum studying. Never ever met any Hujjatul Islam in KL....all low profile....

Yes, I believe he studied in the Holy City of Qum for quite some times..

He maintains a very low profile but I believe he is quite knowledgeable.

For Security reason, I believe it is better for us (Follower of Ahlul Bayt in Malaysia) to go through middle-layer/people than go outright and get unwanted attraction ..yet.

Assalammualaikum, sisters and brothers,

i'm Hajar from Malaysia, right know i'm studying in INTEC UiTM shah alam as a medic student, i really hope to achieve great success in my exam in order for me to further my studies in Australia, i'm really worried if i cannot make it as the requirement to go there is very high, so i wish to seek guidance from Allah SWT but not really sure how to do it, does anybody here know how to perform solat hajat according to ahlulbait?

Thank you!
