    • Because of Iran's opposition to Israel, its expansion of the Islamic Revolution beyond its borders, and the position it has taken on opposing Arab regimes, especially ones that are allied with the United States.
    • I don't think marriage is about making a checklist and splitting tasks. You simply work together to do what you need to do. Whether that means working, cooking, cleaning or all three shouldn't really matter.  
    • For us, the Qur'an and the sunnah are the reference. If the prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) says I leave behind the Quran and the Ahlulbayt, then we follow them, we don't ask why there isn't a surah about it or why Imam Ali (عليه السلام) didn't write it in a letter.

      Curiously the salah and all its details from sunnah. The question is when did Ali ra say it HIMSELF!!! I’ve realised this question as well as any evidence of clear divine Imamate from Quran is a never straight forward answereable question instead look at the reply by a brother above……..instead of using the Quran as criterion he uses an ambiguous hadith and is trying his best to correlate it with a Quranic verse. This is why our shia brothers have a hard time debating a Sunni. Honestly you need to overcome this if you are gonna stand up to answering questions relating to divine leadership.  
    • Salaam, As brother @Mahdavist mentionned, the sermon of Shiqshiqiyyah clearly shows that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) said that : "my position in relation to it (the caliphate) was the same as the position of the axis in relation to the hand-mill." and "I watched the plundering of my inheritance till the first one went his way but handed over the Caliphate to Ibn al-Khattab after himself." Also in sermon 172 (during the Consultative Committee, after the death of the 2nd caliph) he says:  Someone said to me, "O' son of Abi Talib, you are eager for the caliphate." Then I told him: "Rather, you are, by Allah, more greedy, although more remote, while I am more suited as well as nearer. I have demanded it as my right, while you are intervening between me and it, and you are turning my face from it." That's curious, I also don't see any explicit Qur'anic verse where the numbers of rak'as are mentionned, yet it's universally accepted that it's 2, 4, 4, 3 and 4. I wonder where we got those numbers from... Oh, that's right, from the hadiths ! Likewise, the hadiths tell us that certain Qur'anic verses state the Imam Ali (عليه السلام) should be obeyed, and the famous verse: الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَ‌ضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا is a reference to Ghadeer, where the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) announced that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was the mawla of every Muslim, so every Muslim should obey him after the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) passes away.
