    • The only thing he did out of the box and probably that no one did was that he questioned the incident of burning of house and breaking of ribs of Sayyeda Zehra (عليه السلام). And no brother! don't need to name them. But in any sense is it the correct representation of the school of ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) to pass some extreme comments on a scholar whose views don't match with us at some point?  He never challenged any pillar of faith. He never challenged any Furooh or Usool or fundamental of Shiism.  Wanted to share more but I think it will then trigger so I will remain quiet on this for now. My only point is that there must be some tolerance. 
    • There is no harm in dreaming and costs nothing. And Allah’s Plans Are Better Than Your Dreams. And Allah is the best of planners.” (Qur’an 3:54) “Surely Allah is Most Gentle, Ever Compassionate to people.” Qur’an 22:65
    • Wa ‘alaykum Salaam - For last 10 years I have seen at least on average 10 to 15 Shias participating in Friday prayers at ‘my mosque’.  Most of them are students from the University nearby and others run cafes in the town centre. There has never been any issue. One good thing I noticed is that they don’t stick together as a group nor do they stand is the last rows.  They do mingle well but tend to stand end of each row, maybe to be less visible. No one ever uses turbah, instead use a sheet of paper.  They all pray with their arms on the side.  Also, I noticed they end their prayers the Shia way – that is, while in sitting position in the end they tend to do ‘rafa ul yadain’ twice or thrice and then do the salaam.   I have never seen anyone misbehave with them.  After the prayers, the people do interact well with them. Their body language shows that they are comfortable and feel secure.  I have never seen them looking for nooks and corners or going to other floors to make themselves ‘invisible’ from Sunnis. Most of them are Iraqi or Lebanese.  And our mosque has equal mix of all nationalities.  I think overall, the Sunnis are very accommodating with Shia using ‘their’ mosques for prayers.
    • Poverty is an excuse, not a reason unfortunately. It should never excuse a vile and strange practice like thighing, which is basically legalized zina. Islam may been revealed in Arabic and to the Arabs first but it is a universal religion for all, the fiqh should reflect that. Even then, it may be impossible for the father to marry off his daughter because she is not baligh yet. Then again, I doubt the parties involved are remotely interested in morality.
    • I tried to search for it but it did not come up unfortunately. The title was same as this thread’s title. It was a short video based on one of Sheikh Imran’s lectures on cov1d. It may have been the one I linked above^
    • Allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa ali muhammadin wa ajjil faraja hum Rabbinee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqir Audhu billahi minash shaytanir rajeem دع كل الشتائم ضدي تُعاد سبعة أضعاف. Astaghfirillah Ya Allah, protect my sister from further harm and abuse Ya as-Sadiq, pray on my behalf, to Al-Haqq that my friend is guided to Islam and healed of her headaches. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Kadhim, pray to As-Sabur on my behalf that me and my brother in Islam are rewarded with a wife each and also that he can find the strength and to overcome his sadness. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Ridha, pray to Al-Wadud on my behalf that she gets peace of mind, verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Taqi, pray to Al Hakim on my behalf that my burden is lessened and I get the strength to take this deen and the sanctity of my life seriously. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) I ask nothing more than for our happiness and well-being. May we all be protected from the plague by Your permission. Allāhumma qarribnī fihi ila marḍhātik wa jannibnī sakhaṭaka wa naqimātik wa waffiqnī fihi li qirāʾati ayātik bi raḥmatika ya arḥama r-rāhimīn.

    • this is some typical kaffir work, when they try to hide what is really happening. thats why they also kill many many people when they are about to reveal what is really happening behind the curtains 
    • I think we should focus on what we can do right now, right here to better the Ummah.
