  1. Sorry, what exactly do you think the American soldiers are doing in their official, assigned missions in Iraq that is "oppressive." I don't want to hear any business about individual soliders going rogue and engaging in criminal mischief. I mean official, documented missions. How is this work "oppressing" the people of Iraq. Because where I'm standing, these soldiers are protecting the people of Iraq from Salafi and Ba'athist thugs who are trying to block the progress and development of the nation. Are these Salafi extremists not oppressing the people of Iraq? Is fighting these extremists not

    Not getting into WF with you. This man is not my marja or the marja of the majority of shias. I would be disappointed if I asked my marja whether or not it was allowed to be part of oppression and he said "yes" :huh: Anyway, this conversation is starting to remind of a saying: "Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience."

    Ok.. if after all I have said that is what you came up with I think it speaks more to your own intellect than me being a "free mouth piece for Zionists". I can't have an intelligent conversation with a man who brings the word "zionism" into every discussion with little to no regard to whether or not it works in that context. Some of us like to think.. I am sorry if this inconvenience your little world where everything is painted in drapes of black and white and Zionism is the reason your cereal was groggy in the morning.

  4. I will take Zahrtaul_Islam's argument a step further. As a full national and citizen of a predominantly non-Muslim country [or 'kaffir' country for those who like using the term], you share the space with your compatriots and realise your dreams together as a group of people with shared identity, shared responsibilities and shared obligations. This extends to joining the armed forces so you may play a part in fighting for the country whenever the war breaks out. So, in my opinion, joining armed forces, either for roles in combat or non-combat, in itself is perfectly fine. You can not only join

    I never said that he did I said The fact that you failed to differentiate between assumed and "did," coupled with the randomness of your last statement (zionists, enjoy the dunya.. wth does that have to do with ANYTHING I said) makes me feel like addressing you any further would be a waste of my time. Hassan and A_Follower had thoughtful questions, you are just rambling.

    This post is for both A_Follower and Hassan. First let me address the "difference between our situation and Ali ibn Yaqteen." Ali Ibn Yaqteen served in an institution that had massive oppression and corruption.. as is the case here. He was helping the shias (no one is taking head count of how many) and the only stipulation was that he be virtuous in his own deeds. He, just like the people involved now, had a superior that would have killed him had he disobeyed him or shown signs that his loyalty was anything short of sincere. Therefore it would be assumed this his actions would further the age

  7. Wow. It's the governments of these nations that are oppressing their people. Arab governments have been oppressing their people for over a thousand years. They're masters at it and don't need any external help. The governments of Saudi and the Gulf states can give their people more freedom whenever they like; no one is stopping them but themselves. If the people are tired of waiting, then they need to get organized and take back their freedom.

  10. Some basic questions: Where were those extremists before the Americans invaded to throw out Saddam? This is precisely the question. Why were they not so worked up to fight tyranny when Saddam was in power. The people of Iraq sure could have used some help then. Not that these people seem too interested, when it comes down to it, in helping the Iraqi people anyway; mostly, they seem interested in blowing Iraqis and their infrastructure up. So they weren't there before. That doesn't really answer the basic reality that they are in fact there now. So, if the Yanks remove themselves, who is going

  11. It is a clear Islamic commandment not to side with the Dhalim [the oppressor] and no marja' would dispute this. It all boils down to what you perceive as oppression and the reasons for your perception. You can stick the rulings of maraji' to any government/army whom you deem oppressive but that explains a naught. See for instance Seestani's policy of cooperation or, to use a different term, of 'gentle resistance' to the invaders at the time and after the invasion. This policy was at odds with the self righteous rhetoric coming from Iran. Not only this, Seestani supported the first Iraqi electi

    When I said "getting no where and such" this was in response to Hassan2JZ who said that I was advocating internal reform. He also implied there was no way to help. I wanted to make it clear that this kind of attitude only holds people back and contributes to the general impotence of Muslims. Even if he was close to Harun al Rasheed (which probably developed) he was still subject to death if he had been caught, he was not close enough to make the dangers irrelevant. I am asking you to look at the bigger picture here: Did Yaqteen save all the oppressed shias or end all corruption? No, he did no

    Let me repeat something I tried to emphasize before to avoid this EXACT reaction. Was Haroon al Rasheeds administration corrupt? ABSOLUTELY. Did Yaqteen himself engage in any of this corruption? NO. Did he help the Shias? YES Does the army ever experience corruption? ABSOLUTELY. Do the Muslims there have to engage in corruption? NO. Can they help Shias? YES Does that mean that we have to take on the same tasks that Yaqteen himself did? Does that mean that the situation has to be exactly the same? No it does not because anyone with a speck of sense would look past the literal circumstances of s

    Allow me to sift through most of this garbage and get down to the bottom line. For all of you who jumped on the "this is haram, how could I Muslim ever join the kaffir enemy" bandwagon, I invite you to look into the life of Ali bin Yaqteen who was a beloved servant of Imam Musa al Kadhim (as). Yaqteen served in the administration of Haroon al Rasheed with the permission of the Imam provided that his presence there was to help the oppressed shias. The Imam (unlike the majority of you) realized that by joining the administration of Haroon al Rasheed Yaqteen could provide more assistance to the s

  20. May you live then someday under such unproblematic governance. WW1 has been over for 90 years, more or less. I think it's rather fair to expect the Arab peoples to be mature enough to take care of themselves and not blame their problems on everyone else for a change. Yes, I find the epic failures of these pseudo-states to be amusing as well, at least from a safe distance. But it's rather dark humor to be sure.

    If you don't doubt that then there really is no debate here. America is in Iraq right now whether either of us like it or not and the current government system is neither autocratic nor democratic which is subjecting the Iraqi people to massive poverty, instability, and sectarian violence. The troops over there who are helping rebuild Iraq are not contradictory or "against" Islam but rather something that should stop being the subject of such unwanted interference, ESPECIALLY given what has recently happened in Fort Hood. Again.. I am not going to discuss Iran with you because (as you demonstr

    Nope. Cardio will focus on parts of body with extra layer of fat. So if you have, say, flat stomach but your thighs are big, cardio will take off the extra fat from thighs not stomach. In your case, it will reduce your stomach not interfere with your thighs or other parts of the body which don't carry extra fat. Now, with this, you have to make sure that you follow a dietary plan which, coupled with your exercise plan (count how many calories on average you burn), will keep your overall weight maintained. You will certainly loose weight if you go on a yo yo diet and do cardio like crazy. As I

One can authenticate any narration by ignoring these principles and that's what Ayat. Jafar Subhani has done in his analysis. 1) In the first chain Ayat. Jafar Subhani is ignoring the standard principle that for a chain to be sahih/hasan, there needs to be explicit tawthiq or madh(praise) of narrator.

  35. That is a modified version of what an Arab poet said. It means that whatever happened in Karbala is a result of what happened at Saqifa and the people responsible for burning the house of Fatima [sa] and killing her unborn child are the same people who are indirectly responsible for what happened to Hussain [as] and Zainab [sa] at Karbala. In short, you cannot curse and hate the murderer of Hussain [as] and ignore the murderer of Fatima [sa] and not curse him. It is all connected.

Thank you for explaining it but I don't think these people favor logic much. They blindly do what their leaders tell them too. Hamas wants to win over Israel as Yazid on over Hussain. You can twist it and explain it away/call it a "slip of tongue", accuse me of causing "fitna" but this is a fact. Everyone should know what kind of people Hamas consists of. Too bad you do
