    Their economy is starting to mature and now they are both consolidating their markets and building markets by the Road & Belt lnitiative, which will flesh-out their transportation network. ln another ten years, l see the PRC beginning to lead academic and intellectual innovations.

  9. Sis, there's a third category of truly amazing Shia men. If I hadn't met some of them myself I wouldn't have believed they existed. But they do. InshaAllah Allah SWT blesses your sister and the OP with such men!
  10. Of course. I believe I have 5-6 kg of various chocolates at home right now, if not more. There's no such thing as too much chocolate. I practice brutal honesty. There's no point in hiding stuff. Your partner will find out everything when you live together anyway. I actually even tell them my bad sides and biggest weaknesses. Better that they know what they are getting themselves into. My exfiance was addicted to coffee, while I avoid coffee and rather drink tea. Why would that be a problem? And my fiance before that was from a southeastern country where they eat spicey food. I made it clear from the beginning that I physically cannot tolerate spicey food and he accepted that.
  11. Are you going to tell any of your prospects that you are addicted to processed cocoa, a chocaholic? Which leads to a serious point: People have to be up front about who they are and what they like and don't like. And have a compatible style of humor. You and several other sisters say you love tea. What if the other is a coffee or soda drinker? OK, that is about simplistic, but not when it comes to food. Remember how many times l expressed real dislike about avocadoes and eggplant? What if "the significant other" also hates this junk --are you going to cook two meals?

  15. It's not United States's responsibility to provide jobs in Mexico or interfere in Mexican economics but the American manufacturers that decide to do business there, Mexico is not a state of the US. It is also the Mexican governments' responsibility to provide, work with the manufacturers/regulate them and create new jobs for it's people.

    lRl vs. USA

    Ref: Ayats 5:32-33 ln an opinionated news item, lRl is succumbing to US sanctions because it has "anti-corruption courts". https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/dec/17/iran-corruption-courts-fuel-surge-executions/ The article says lRl had 31 "public executions" "last year". ln 2017, the US had 23 executions and 39 death sentences.
  17. @Silas Do you know what the canary mission is? It is active on many American campuses, though no one until recently knew who was behind it. They specifically target pro-Palestinian activists and groups and try to smear them as terrorists. It can ruin careers and on many occasions has, false accusations have been made about pro-Palestinian professors sexually abusing students without proof. The Israel lobby in the US was leaked by the electronic intifada few weeks back. All of this info is contained within that. It covers Israeli interference in all angles from politics to the media to social media to college and university campuses. https://electronicintifada.net/content/watch-film-israel-lobby-didnt-want-you-see/25876.
  18. W/salam sister. IMO the answer to both your questions is 'Yes.' Most shia men who think that they are intelligent and eloquent are in fact incredibly conceited, vain and narcissistic. Owing to this they reject many girls and often marry at an older age (mid to late thirties). There is a dearth of well read and 'interesting' shia bachelors, so their mothers are particularly arrogant thinking that their sons are the Koh-I-Noor. If such a guy happens to be acquainted with a woman in an arranged marriage setting, then they often think that they are royalty (illusions of grandeur), and they expect to be treated as such too. These men claim that they want to marry a smart woman, but when they meet their intellectual match, they feel inferior and somewhat belittled. They feel insulted if a woman can keep up with them, and God forbid if she happens to know more than the guy or correct him, all hell will break loose as their egos are severally bruised. To answer your first question, I think that what we women would consider to be normal/desirable qualities in a guy - i.e witty, knowledgeable, engaging, chivalrous, and composed - are sadly uncommon amongst practising shia guys. I find that shia men generally fall into two extremes of the spectrum: (1) Dull with a personality like a damp squib and religious, or, (2) Affable and sophisticated but not religious. To answer your second question, I think that men are put off by assertive women or women that they consider to be 'over confident.' They like self assured women who conduct themselves with dignity and class, and have a dash of 'sass', but still expect them to be feminine, a little shy and guarded. I have a younger sister who is unmarried and she can completely relate to your quandary. Her search for a 'normal' practising shia guy continues.... (clearly I've been watching too much of The Apprentice). Good luck sister.

    Lucid Dream

    السَّلآمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ الله وبَرَكآتُه Respected brother @Abbas01 It is common with many people that they do not remember their dreams so no worries. Also remember this thing if Allah wishes to show you meaningful dreams then you will surely remember those dreams, rest of the dreams nevermind about it.

    I feel so tired every morning

    السَّلآمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ الله وبَرَكآتُه @ali_fatheroforphans Hope you are fine إِنْ شَاء َ اللَّه Ali, from my personal experience as recommended to me by somebody, boil milk add one spoon of honey, drink it and sleep. You will wake up fresh. Try it for 2 days and don't neglect it. You will see the difference إِنْ شَاء َ اللَّه

    What If Earth Started Spinning Twice as Fast?

    Brother, Manners are not bound or limited to anything. People get to know one when they open their mouth. Read some sayings by Moula Ali(asws) on 'tongue' and see some narrations on the 'Akhlaq' of Mohammad(saww) o Aal(asws) e Mohammad(saww). Don't mind and avoid being sarcastic, everybody knows how to be sarcastic you know but we refrain from such things and represent ourselves in a way that people get attracted to us instead of being ignorant as well as arrogant. After all we are the followers of those(asws) who have the best of Akhlaq.

    Not true. You can only marry a Muslim, Christian, or Jew, not a polytheist or atheist.

    Taqleed of today's Scholar

    السَّلآمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ الله وبَرَكآتُه Respected brother Hope you are fine إِنْ شَاء َ اللَّه I did not say that by leaving taqleed of these scholars I will not be seeking religious advice from anybody else. Ask me before you judge me.

  28. Ron Paul is awesome. He is what a real patriot looks like, hence why we could never win the presidency. He may have some idealistic views about the economy which would never happen in reality, but I truly think he means well, which isn’t something I can say for everyone else.
