  1. Past hour
  2. Salaam walaikum May Allah shower his blessings on Muhammad and his progeny. Alhamdulilah, I’m so glad you asked this question because over the past year this has been the backbone to some insight that I received which Insha’Allah I think will give everyone some perspective. Insha’Allah I will post this week and Insh’Allah I hope that it will bring understanding or allow some reflection. I had already been planning to post this so the timing of your question is perfect Alhamdulilah.
  3. I like your style. The crux of every page is it's written with a goal to convince you their opinion is right, not always the same as truth. If this falls in the category of "writes with their hands and says it's from Allah" the penalty is grave and I don't want to promote it. I do want to know what's truth and what's story, but am limited to English, some old Quebec French, and how to get directions to a bathroom in Spanish. (Doesn't mean I understand the directions.) The Bible has gone through the agony of critical thinking for centuries, to the point nobody knows what they should believe or not. The movement is not actually Christian against Muslim, nor vice versa, we're all fighting secular atheism. In the mean time, we're all still divided. If you don't know the argument you have no defense. @baqar Thank you for taking this serious.
  4. And Moses said, "My Lord is more knowing [than we or you] of who has come with guidance from Him and to whom will be succession in the home. Indeed, wrongdoers do not succeed." Qur'an 28:37
  5. Today
  6. I’m not sure about this however. Killing believers is sure way to the hell fire which means they were unbelievers. Munafiqoon disguised as believers. I have a special article planned around this topic Insha’Allah that will give confident perspective.
  7. Is this not the very reason why Sunnis struggle to trust Twelver Shia with intellectual discussions? It is like a massive elephant in the room which is also stuck between a rock and a hard place. 1. If it is publically conceded that the official Twelver position is that various Sahabah died upon Kufr, Nifaq, Nasb, or otherwise Dhulm, then Sunnis would increasingly feel justified in their opposition to Twelvers. Or 2. Twelvers continue to stay silent on the topic and just encourage research to know what the position and belief is regarding various Sahabah, but this implies very strongly you guys are trying to hide Twelver beliefs so lay Sunnis do not feel averse to them ('reconciliatory Taqiyyah'?). I guess you guys just see more harm in 1 because then all Sunnis would hate Twelvers whereas 2 is a way of using ambiguity to slide under the radar and still reach the lay people. But rather than showing the academic integrity and strength of Twelver beliefs though, this just implies that the only way to call people to Tashayyu is through deceipt. I know that in a general manner all Muslims do this to some degree when talking non-Muslims e.g. about the Hudood, because they need to unpackage their questions and get to the crux of problem with their understanding (which is the fact they don't believe in La Illaha IlAllah), but at the end of the day, a Sunni would not ouright deny the existence of the Hudood or hide it - they would mention it and justify it and agree to disagree if they have to, even if the Kafir he is talking to hates Muslims because of the reality of Hudood. On the other hand, many Twelvers will use all the linguistic ambiguity at his desposal to deny the reality of La'nah upon the Dushman of the Ahlul Bait and those who make up that group.

    Welcome to ShiaChat, members here will be happy to give you advice. For your question, yes a Shia can marry a Sunni but it’s not recommended.
  9. Yesterday
  10. Imam Khamenei does not allow the cursing of the first three caliphs for fitnah reasons, but cursing the enemies in general is fine.
  11. Alhamdulilah very well said and I co-sign what orthodox Truth says above. This is when our Imam Mahdi does appear Islam will seem like a different religion. Too much cultural mixed in with Allahs Religion. Islam is universal breaks down all borders and all the ism’s that are plaguing the world today.
  12. Salaam Aleikum, This is very true. The more I worship Him, the more I hope and pray to be amoung the saalihiin. It is like every prayer need to be ask God to include us with faithful people and protect us from hypocrisy.
  13. Her reaction doesn't seem like fake
  14. If she is strong on her religion, she wouldn’t fall in love with anyone but her future husband. As for the marriage, it’s makrooh (for example, by Ayatollah Sistani’s fatwa) for the Shia women to marry Sunni men for multiple reasons based upon the sharia law.
  15. Looks staged - and I mean the guy's so called reaction
  16. I don't think this was a prank
  17. Brother, as far as 1400 years those people burned us alive, drown us in rivers, or beheaded on the mere suspicions of belonging to the followers of the Prophet and his family. Nothing has changed in this regard. The saddest part in all of this is that we are insanely persecuted, while their ruling elites live the lifestyles of complete kufr. It’s no secret that the al-Saud family members throw parties where alcohol, drugs and prostitution is a normality, but next day they torture to death Shias for the sake of it.
  18. Muawiyah, Yazid, Osama bin Laden, Mullah Omar, al Baghdadi et al. also all believed in God. Such belief alone doesn’t safeguard being a Muslim, let alone achieving the Paradise. This is the problem with many culturals, they drink alcohol, don’t wear scarf, don’t pray etc. but still believe they can somehow be forgiven. It doesn’t work this way, as evident from the Qur'an alone and the ahadith books. (I would appreciate if one of the admins could combine this post with the previous one of mine, Jazakallah)
  19. Is it possible for a Shia girl to fall in love with a Sunni guy and get married and have cute babies?
  20. Salam, there are no borders in Islam, and (in my opinion) nations, that are a social construct of human consciousness that arose mainly after the French Revolution. Islam should always prevail over human made nationalism. Qur'an only mentions that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ) created different groups of people, so that they could get to know each other, no that there are borders, passports, not to mention some kind of racial supremacy (pan-Arabism, pan-Turkism, pan-Persianism). That said, in the past, many ethnic Arabs settled in Iran (for example, thousands were invited by the Safavids to give orthodox dawah, tens of thousands settled fleeing Saddam), as well as many Arab countries have citizens of Persian descent. Therefore, in my opinion, especially after the 1979 it’s a moral duty and religious obligation upon Iran to accept all the Shia Muslims, regardless of their background, who wish to settle and live in the country. Today’s borders are today, they may change in 100 years, as was in the past and what should concern all of us is the preservation and spread of orthodox Islamic teachings. However, post-1979 Iran still has a problem with the Persian supremacist syndrome prevelant among many of its people. The mistreatment and widespread suspicion of Twelver Hazaras who fled the Taliban is also rampant, something that shouldn’t happen at all. Even Shia Arabs, for example Iraqis or Iranian Arabs, are somehow mocked and insulted. Iran should completely abandon nationalism and solely focus on principles that come solely from the Islamic point of view. This was one of the views of Ayatollah Khomeini who tried to root out Zaorastrian events like Nowruz but after his death, they just became incorporated into the system.

    Can a Shia marry a Sunni?
  22. Not too surprised by their experiences, although the various clips by some Nasibi is really disgusting. How can someone be so focussed on hating and backbiting other pilgrims. Just shows how toxic wahabism is to the mind and soul.
  23. It could be anyone! including you and I. Only God knows! Or, God will reveal this to us on the Day of Judgement. We can hope and pray that God counts us amongst those of iman and not those amongst the hypocrites or the faithless... inshallah.
  24. Alhamdulilah I am Mujtahid born and raised Muslim from both perspectives of Sunni and Shia. I am very Capable of coming to my own conclusion of ruling based on years of learning fiqh. However, I’m from a different land so I don’t align with a particular major Marja who is deceased or A Marja who is alive such as Sistani, Khamanei, Shiraz, Hakim etc. Since I respect all the Marja I would rather study all their rulings in order to find conclusive judgement on a matter. I find it silly to find someone in haraam lifestyle because he doesn’t pledge to a specific Marja. To me they are all men of learning so they can all be used looked upon as Guidance to a conclusion in matters of fiqh. Unless Imam Mahdi AS says to follow a specific Marja directly I will not choose one particular Marja and you would have to show me in the Qur'an where it says I have to follow a specific Marja.
  25. Undoubtedly Turkey is the Sunni equivalent of Iran with their Neo-Ottomanism which should also be rejected and is no surprise the two are beginning to become closer and closer?
