AWWWW! LOOK AT THE CUTE SITE WHEN IT WAS A YEAR OLD!

Look at the low amount of posts before you were a member.

Infact, look at how the member # decreased since you joined, LOL!

How many members do we ACTUALLY have Ali?

P.S.

God; I’m getting flashbacks now when I first joined - I was the trouble maker back then  :angel:

(salam)

Well, I think we went up to 15,000 members, then I deleted all the inactive ones and went back to 5000 members, we're up to 10,000 members again and I'll probably delete all the innactive ones again soon.

You had a diff. nick?

Salams,

After looking back on shiachat.com since 2000, I thought I should make this poll to see how far back our member database goes.

Please vote :)

Wa salam.

Ali - Can you build a Voicechat system in the chatroom - Ya3ni something like Paltalk?

(salam)

If we find a VoiceChat room that works with our current forum database, and enough volunteers to moderate it. We'd go for it.

so what happened to #shia at irc.dal.net .. I haven't been on irac for quite some time .. but is it affiliated still with this site?

Nope, the founder (Hussein from Toronto) just pretty much let it expire.. Now it was taken over by Pakistanies who can't speak English, other than "a/s/l?".

Zain, LOL! Good find!

April 2003 - I remember a good friend of mine told me about Shiachat; she said the Sunnis were roaming here freely spreading their Aqeeda and Shias were falling for it - Even though that wasn’t the case - I think it was her way of getting my attention and basically 'forcing' me to go on line and have a look.

It was a good thing that I looked :)

    • 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.

      Dear brothers and sisters  Can someone please tell me what the following dream means.  Dreaming that your nephew is loosing his hair.    I heard it means something bad so I am a little worried.    JazakAllah
