  1. OK, let me explain this in a different way: The Republican Guards was the elite force of the Iraqi Bathist Army. The Islamic Revolutionary Guards were formed in 1979 (in Iran). It is an auxiliary force which complements the I.R.I. Army. Whenever the Revolutionary Guards conduct war games, the BBC calls them "Iran's elite Republican Guards." There is no such thing as "Iran's elite Republican Guards." Moreover, when they "correct" their mistake, they change it to: "Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards." Again, no such force exists. The Revolutionary Guards are not the elite branch of the I.R.I. armed forces, they are a separate force all together! There are elite units in both the Revolutionary Guards and in the I.R.I. Army. If the BBC fails to have even the most basic knowledge on one of the most important political/economic entities in Iran (i.e. calling them by their PROPER NAME), how can they be seen as reliable?

  2. The famous opinions are that it is sunnah Muakkadah or highly mustahab. I think the only Imami scholar who considered it wajib was Ibn al-Junayd (ar). w/s

  3. You can't discount the role that propaganda plays in politics. AN gives ammunition to the detractors of the IRI, which makes it easier for Western governments to present Iran as an unstable and dangerous problem. This makes it easier for them to do things like raise funds, pass laws and drum up grass-roots support for anti-Iranian causes. There is a real, material increase in risk to the IRI and Iran more generally that comes with AN's recklessness. The positive aspects you point to in AN exist in others like Ali Larijani, it;s just a damn shame that he didn't run, and that AN's competitors consist of the likes of Rafsanjani and G.W. Bush. With Obama now in power AN doesn't have the luxury of piss-poor competition anymore. The world is less forgiving, especially after the crackdowns.

  5. Jewish directors challenge Israel By Sakhr al-Makhadi at the London Film Festival A series of controversial Israeli films are provoking outrage and plaudits in equal measure at the London Film Festival. The best documentary award has gone to one of the year's most controversial films. Defamation is a polemic by Israeli filmmaker Yoav Shamir. In his expose of America's Anti-Defamation League (ADL), he claims anti-Semitism is being exaggerated for political purposes. He argues that American Jewish leaders travel around the world exploiting the memory of the Holocaust to silence criticism of Israel. He gets inside the ADL, which claims to be the most powerful lobby group of its type anywhere in the world. With unprecedented access, he travels with them as they meet foreign leaders, and use the memory of the Holocaust to further their pro-Israeli agenda. At one point, an ADL leader admits to Shamir that "we need to play on that guilt". Shamir says his film, Defamation, started out as a study of "the political games being played behind the term anti-Semitism". "It became more a film about perceptions and the way Jews and Israelis choose to see themselves and define themselves - a lot of the time unfortunately choosing the role of eternal victims as a way of life." Israel's national psyche He wanted to find out how this mentality has become part of Israel's national psyche. The film suggests that the attitude is thrust upon children from an early age. School trips to concentration camps in Poland run year-round. From just 500 children in the 1980s, he claims around 30,000 are now flown to Europe every year. He discovers that the trips are not designed to educate, but to provoke an emotional reaction. They fly out of Israel euphoric, and end their journey in tears, talking about their shared hatred. They are accompanied by secret service agents who prevent them from talking to any locals - they are led to believe that most Poles are anti-Semites. The end result is disturbing. The victim mentality is being used to justify Israel's occupation and colonisation of the West Bank and siege of Gaza. In the film, one Israeli Jew tells Shamir that she refuses to get upset by Israeli aggression against the Palestinians because "we" faced worse. To her, the Holocaust justifies anything the Israeli army does. And for Shamir, that is the real danger. "We are experiencing the most right-wing government we've ever had, and there is very little room for discussion. Putting so much focus on hate and the negative, I don't see it as a healthy thing." In Israel, the film has received a mixed response. "It's kind of a love or hate type of response to the film," Shamir says. "It's very hard to get people to come and watch documentaries in the cinemas in Israel." Touchy subject In the UK, too, there is anger towards Defamation. Mark Gardiner from one of Britain's biggest anti-Semitism campaign groups, the Community Security Trust, believes the film could put Jews at risk. Samuel Maoz's film, Lebanon, has sparked debate inside Israel "All of a sudden some bloke appears out of nowhere, oh he's an Israeli, oh he's a Jew, therefore what he says must have more credence than what organisations like my own and the ADL have said for years - I think that shows a deep-seated bias." And he is furious at the suggestion that anti-Semitism is being used for political purposes. "This assumption that people are saying it because they're being malicious, because they know that it's not anti-Semitic, but hey lets use anti-Semitism in order to win the Israel case, that's what I find really really offensive," Gardiner says. Shamir is not surprised by reactions like that. "Anti-Semitism is a very touchy subject and making a film about anti-Semitism is almost like walking on thin ice, you're going to hurt people's feelings." Martial Kurtz from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) believes the film can make a difference to activists like him. He says all too often Israel's supporters label groups like the PSC as anti-Semitic. "There are many Jewish organisations which campaign [with us] against the occupation, campaign against the siege in Gaza," he says. "So the whole argument falls flat." 'Rocking the boat' Defamation is not the only controversial movie at this year's London Film Festival. Eyes Wide Open provoked anger and walkouts when it was screened. It is a love story between two Orthodox Jewish men set in Jerusalem. Despite trying to keep their affair secret, the pair are threatened with violence by the community's elders, leading to tragedy. Director Haim Tabakman knew the film would not be easy for some Jews to watch. "This film has a provocative pitch," he says. "Every good film is political." But he just wants people to face reality. "If you talk about it, it exists, so it's not in their interests to talk about it," he told Al Jazeera. "It's like the flood with Noah and his ark - the water came to destroy everything but something new came out of it. Sometimes it's good to shake the boat." 'Victims of war' Another director causing waves is Samuel Maoz, whose war film Lebanon is sparking debate inside Israel. "You can't change anything without first of all talking about it," he says. "The film moves people to talk, even to argue with each other." Maoz's film, which won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival in September, is based on his own experiences as his army invaded Lebanon in 1982. He says he made the film because of the guilt which still haunts him to this day. "I'm not comparing between the suffering of a Lebanese woman who lost her family to the suffering of a soldier who fell into a no way out situation and needs to kill. If I can make some kind of scale, she is in level 10 and he is in the bottom, he is in level two. But both of them are victims of war." He knows words like that will cause controversy in Israel, but he is ready for the backlash. "The army is not something holy, especially after the 2006 Lebanon war. In war itself there are no good guys and bad guys. The war is the bad guy." Maoz believes that Israel will only become less belligerent when civilians are shown the realities of war. "First of all it was a need to unload and expose the war as it is, naked, without all the heroic stuff and the rest of the cliches." But Maoz has a bigger aim - to stop Israel launching attacks on Palestinians and Lebanese. "Every film has its ambition to change something ... the film is attacking war itself," he says. "Peace will come but it's just a question of time and time is blood. If we can find a short cut we can save a lot of blood for both sides." Source:Al Jazeera Al Jazeera Article

  6. The internet search giant, Google, says 14,000 images of the precious artefacts kept in Iraq's National Museum will be available online from early next year. Google's chief executive, Eric Schmidt, said the world should see Iraq's rich heritage and contribution to culture. "The history of the beginning of - literally - civilisation... is preserved in this museum," he said. Some 15,000 artefacts and antiquities were stolen from the museum when it was ransacked after 2003 US-led invasion. “ I can think of no better use of our time and our resources than to make the images and ideas from your civilisation, from the very beginnings of time, available to billions of people worldwide ” Eric Schmidt Google Only about a quarter are believed to have been retrieved, despite international efforts to ban their trafficking or sale. The museum, which only re-opened in February, nevertheless still holds countless relics from the Stone Age to the Babylonian, Assyrian and Islamic periods. "I can think of no better use of our time and our resources than to make the images and ideas from your civilisation, from the very beginnings of time, available to billions of people worldwide," Mr Schmidt told Iraqi officials at a ceremony in Baghdad. Mr Schmidt said the thousands of images, "plus a few surprises", would be available on the internet early next year. The costs of the project, which have not so far been released, are being borne jointly by Google and the US state department.

  8. We exist to worship Him in the first instance. Then to differentiate good from the evil doers (allowing the laws of causality and free will to take their course). Then to find our reality as it was in the pre-material existence....etc etc He could have established a direct link with us to communicate His reasoning for our existence. But His wisdom is such that it would be a more perfect system to have chosen individuals that poses the right human (prophetic) qualities to be that link to Him. They are our role models whose characters reflect His attributes, some more reflecting more attributes than others, hence we have prophets on different levels of perfection. you can't find Him. He will find you, if it's what He wants.

  14. I typed in the post last night but couldn't reply cos my internet died. I saved it so here it is: Of course I read and read it carefully. I took your point but didn't respond for 1) the fear of going off-topic and 2) the sake of brevity. As for the opinion of the majority of people, if you are basing your statement on the recent elections, then good luck. If you are basing it on your personal experiences, then again, good luck. :D I'm not saying that you must be wrong but you have insufficient or faulty evidence to substantiate the claim. Even if it were true, the people of Iran are presented with half an opportunity to make a choice from the list of candidates manipulated and controlled by a small but powerful state organ made up of unelected or indirectly elected individuals who can bar a candidate from running without giving common people a chance to decide for themselves. The choice is already tampered with and people are asked to choose from the list of 'approved' candidates. The whole idea that the common people are dumb, ignorant, immature kids whose choices and decisions need to be controlled by daddy-like sages is revolting. Anyway, this is why I didn't reply to you in detail. Let's go back to AN and his views on the Holocaust. Stay safe wherever you live.

  16. Well what do you expect? Germans of their time would have been defending Hitler as well. Sorry i don't even know what that is.. Shias should care more about illegitimate governments against them like Saudi Arabia instead of just focusing on Israel. Israel is not the only "illegitimate" country in the middle east. 30 years ago you were best friends with Israel. Suddenly you became enemies, and only God knows why. Iranians didn't mind being friends with israel back then. Its the regime which does.

  17. Let's turn it around. Out of all the times he has been asked about his views on this issue in videotaped interviews, is there any evidence in English, Farsi, Swahili, whatever, of him straight up saying "I believe it happened, but it has been politicized?" Politicians are supposed to be professional communicators. If he believes in it, why has been incapable of communicating it, with all the opportunities given?

  18. there is no other version of the holocaust. Seems like he is completely denying the holocaust to me. Even if he was denying part of the holocaust, why does he care. Its not like Iran will ever belong to the EU. What i was saying about him is right. He has nothing better to do than deny holocaust. Thats his role. Real governance is done by Khamenei. Ahmadinijad is just there to please the west that they are moving towards democracy.

  19. You cannot see through their hearts to know if they really believe in Islam. In these situations Islam teaches us to take the words of the person as honest and you take it from there. Don't make assumptions. Remember what the prophet told Khaled Ibn ALwaleed when Khaled killed "insincere converts" the prophet asked him "did you rip their hearts to see if they were sincere about their Islam or not?" and explained to everyone else that was Khaled did was a crime. Even if we assume (not that we're really allowed to) that some people convert to Islam because they married a Muslim etc, there is not much harm if the cause is not their understanding of Islam at first as long as they come to understand Islam afterwards, believe in it and confirm their decision is the right one in their eyes if you see what I mean.-Like in Nazar's relative example. Be careful there, you are assuming here that "most converts" are faking their Islam! Also, I have not seen that happening(reverting after partner departure). I have seen cases of a born Muslim married to convert Muslim and then they get divorced for whatever reason but the convert stays Muslim. Believe it or not converts are more sincere about their Islam than many many born Muslims so don't "suppose" what you supposed.

I said it to baradur, and I'll say it to you too. I don't believe that you are so naive as to not realize that Ahmadinejad actively cultivates the perception that he denies the holocaust.

  25. Come now. You're not that naive. The man works hard at actively cultivating the perception that he denies the holocaust in order to make confrontation with Westerners and build street cred with the "Jooz put Arab blood in their Passover matzo and plot to sterilize us and undermine our mighty manliness" constituency of the Arab street. He keeps it ambiguous enough for useful idiots like yourself (and admittedly, formerly me) to apologize for him and say "oh, he wuz misunderstood!" But if this perception were truly a misconception, and he was really interested in dispelling the conception, he has had numerous opportunities to do so. It's very simple: Katie Couric - Why do you deny the holocaust? That's crazy." Ahmadinejad - "Oh, you are mistaken. I acknowledge it happened. But I reject the abuse of this event for political purposes 65 years later." Does he do that? No. Why? Because he is deliberately cultivating the perception. What are you, 5 years old? Do you find that to be mature adult behaviour? Wow. Congratulations. I believe that takes the cake hands down as perhaps the most stupid thing I have heard to date on this site. That is a momentous achievement.

  26. No, he didn't. He said there were no homosexuals in Iran. He said nothing about open homosexuality. Hear it in his own words: Probably after his aides told him that he made an utter fool of himself on international television, so he decided to do some damage control. Of course it is. Another topic where Ahmadinejad came off as being stunningly ignorant. Yes. All of them. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: He doesn't even address the question, let alone come up with "strong, logical arguments". :lol: Like the ideal that there was a light surrounding him when he gave his speech and the UN council members couldn't blink for 30 minutes??? I'm sure he's a really good person; very humble and down-to-earth. Very honest and trustworthy too, I'm sure. Just too stupid to be the president. Too bad the Iranians voted him in for the second time. But then again, if George Bush can be voted in twice in a row, anyone can.

  27. No one said they loved any of those you mentioned above. Also, I am very aware of these deaths and if someone attempted to deny them I would object. Unfortunately for us given the context of this conversation (this is not a thread on a Japanese forum about how no Chinese people were executed) this would seem a tad out of place and random. Feel free to start a thread regarding that incident (or the Turkish denial of the Armenian genocide.. Saddam denying the mass slaughter of Kurds) and I assure you that I will be just as vocal in denouncing and rejecting their stances. Attempting to dismiss opposition to the status quo on this website as "Zionist-loving sheep" only takes away from your credibility. By no means does Ahmedinejad act in my interests or in my name and that does not make me any less of a Muslim.

  28. But why? Why would a man attack a historical occurrence? This isn't a "belief.." this actually happened. Millions of people were slaughtered and systematically killed. We teach it because it happened, like so many things have happened in history that we teach as well. In elementary school 1/3 of my historical education was on slavery and why it was wrong, why intolerance is wrong, why it was ethically, morally repugnant. The course of Germany sparked a world war, these things are essential to our understanding of history and its implications. Denying it is most certainly an act of defiance.. no one is saying it is not.. but what does it accomplish? Where there could be dialogue there is now rhetoric and thoughtfulness has been replaced by stupidity. It is not noble by virtue of being defiant. When people deny genocide, slavery, or any other historical atrocity.. they do nothing but rob themselves in the process and Ahmedenejad is a tragic example of this.

  31. Hijri Date Line A day on a spinning Earth needs to start along some horizon as Sun light sweeps the globe. In the late 1800s, England was advanced astronomically proposed dividing the globe into 24 time-zones with the reference time-zone being the Greenwich Mean Time along longitude 0° or The Prime Meridian. The Earth was therefore divided into 360 longitude degrees, 180° to the east of the Meridian called the Eastern Hemisphere and 180° to the west of the Meridian called the Western Hemisphere. Where the two hemispheres meet (on the opposite side of the Earth in the middle of the Pacific Ocean along longitude 180°), an International Date Line was defined to bridge the day-long gap between neighboring lands on either side. The date to the east of line is always one day earlier than it is to the west. If the time to the east of the line is 2012-12-21 11:11 then the time to the west side is 2012-12-22 11:11. Although the IDL serves as the official world calendar divider, new days at each location on Earth officially start at their respective local midnight times (00:00) and sweep smoothly except when reaching the IDL where the date suddenly jumps from by one day forward if moving west to east and entering the Eastern Hemisphere or one day backward if moving east to west and entering the Western Hemisphere and one day. Figure here, see section "Hijri Date Line" of http://www.heliwave.com/Quran.and.2012.pdf The International Date Line is a civil tool and is independent of the natural Earth horizon at sunrise or at sunset. For convenience, the IDL occasionally diverges from its 180° longitude line to pass around some island groups so as not to divide them into two separate dates as shown below: Figure here, see section "Hijri Date Line" of http://www.heliwave.com/Quran.and.2012.pdf In Islam, a new Day starts at the local sunset (not at 00:00) of that location which varies daily around a solar year cycle. To complicate matters, months in Islam are lunar and unlike days which are linked to the Sun, months are linked to the Moon. Furthermore, no Dateline is defined and different locations on Earth use different dates and sometimes months at the same time. There is a real need for a Hijri Date Line to be defined to help unify the Hijri Calendar and it is therefore proposed that the natural daily sunset horizon over Makkah be considered as the Hijri Date Line or more precisely the Hijri Date Arc along the forefront of the Sunset Arc horizon peeling off the daylight and covering it with night. As soon as it is sunset over Makkah every land to the west starts their new day at their respective sunset sweep over until almost 24 hours later it reaches the land to the east of Makkah and a new day is born. Once the same horizon reached Makkah again then a new cycle begins. This would explain why we have two sets of sayings (Hadith) of the Prophet (pbuh+f) where one set claiming that Imam Mehdi (may Allah bring forward his reappearance) will appear on a Friday while another set claiming Saturday. If such a Hijri Date Arc is considered, then the Imam can declare his presence at sunset in the Holy Kabba in Makkah. All land to his east will be Friday while land to his west is slowly becoming Saturday as sunset sweeps over it. As Allah first chose Jerusalem to be the prayer direction point only to change it later to Makkah, this may suggest that the first ever horizon the Earth started its night-day cycle with passed through both cities simultaneously. Continuous horizon drift due Earth’s precession (very slow wobbling on its axis that shifts the equinoxes and solstices positions 1˚ every 71.5 years) means that this occurrence may reoccur every precession cycle which current science says it takes 26,000 years while Allah All-knowing states that the angels and the Spirit need 50,000 years to ascent to Him as per Quran 70:4: ÃÚæÐ ÈÇááå ãä ÇáÔíØٰä ÇáÑÌíã ÈöÓúãö ٱááøóåö ٱáÑøóÍúãóٰäö ٱáÑøóÍöíãö ÊóÚúÑõÌõ ٱáúãóáóٰٓÆößóÉõ æóٱáÑøõæÍõ Åöáóíúåö Ýöì íóæúãò ßóÇäó ãöÞúÏóÇÑõåõۥ ÎóãúÓöíäó ÃóáúÝó ÓóäóÉò To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. This is why the upcoming galactic alignment of the Earth and Sun with the centre of our Galaxy on 21st December 2012 is such an important event as it may bring a truly new day for a truly new beginning, and Allah knows best.

    Friends wanted !

    As Salaamu Alaikum, Im still in the reverting process. Everyday, the truth of Islam is getting harder to deny. What I pray for now, more than anything else, is loneliness. Most of the time when people approach me, their speech is laden with vulgarity and stupidity. Don't get me wrong, I'm still struggling to right all my wrongs too, but its made even more difficult when you are surrounded by uncivilized people. I seek loneliness so that I can be alone to myself contemplating Allah (swt), Sometimes with a change of mind you also need a change of place I guess. I'm thinking about moving somewhere new, somewhere where I don't know anybody, and start life all over again as a practicing muslim.

  35. (salam) He needs to just drop this Holocaust stuff all together. I know he's trying to break the legitimacy of the state of Israel, but the creation of Israel had little to do with the Holocaust in the first place. Zionism predates World War 2, and the creation of Israel was almost entirely a separate event. Israel did not even officially commemorate the Holocaust until years later. Read Norman Finkelstein's book "The Holocaust Industry" and you'll know what I mean - the Holocaust was picked up as a pretext for the state much later, as it best convinces the masses that these persecuted people deserved a state. But what happened in Germany should have nothing to do with the Palestinians, they did nothing to deserve any of this persecution they've been facing for 60 years. Ahmedinejad loses more of his credibility every time he denies that the genocide had taken place; instead he needs to focus on talking about how the Holocaust does not matter to Israel, and how Israel is oppressing innocent people.

  37. In His Name, the Most High Salaams Ayatullah al-Udhma Fadhlullah(HA) is a Marja', like Ayatullah al-Udhma Sistani(HA) and Imam Khamenei(HA) (who is the Wali Amr al-Muslimeen as well as a Marja') and there are many many other Maraj'e - alhamdu lillah, the Shia are blessed with a multitude of Maraje'. Hizbullah is a Resistance Movement and a Political Party, that takes it's inspiration from the true Islam of Muhammad(S), as expounded by Imam Khumayni(A) and others following the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Those who are members of (or sympathisers and lovers of) Hizbullah from amongst the Shia, are duty bound to make taqleed of a Marja' Taqleed. Some make taqleed of Imam Khamenei(HA), others make taqleed of Ayatullah al-Udhma Fadhlullah(HA) others Ayatullah al-Udhma Sistani(HA) and so on. Since Hizbullah follow the line of Wilayat al-Faqih, they have a loyalty and allegience to the Wali Faqih - Imam Khamenei(HA), however that doesn't mean that they all make taqleed of him - however as I have said some do. It should be noted that we as Shia, do not have this strange concept of "Spiritual" Leader, we have the Leadership. The Marja'iyyeh and the Wilayah - both of which can be encompassed in the Imamah of Imam al-Hujjah(AJ) following his return, insha Allah soon. Also; for those who have problems with Ayatullah al-Udhma Fadhlullah(HA), be careful. Don't cross red lines. Hope that helps. With Salaams and Dua's Shabbir

    Temporary Beauty

    (bismillah) (salam) Temporary Beauty Once Malik ibn Dinar was passing through the streets of Basra, where he happened to see a female servant walking with the kind of pomp and show generally displayed by the maidservants of kings. Upon witnessing the manner of her walking Hazrat Malik called her and said,: “O handmaid, would your master like to sell you?” She was really surprised to hear this and said, “What? Repeat it again.” Hazrat Malik did accordingly, at which she said, “Would a beggar like you be able to purchase me if the master agreed to sell at all?” He replied in the affirmative, adding that he could purchase a better one than her. On hearing this she laughed and ordered the servants to take the beggar along with them (just as an amusement for the master). On reaching home she narrated the event to her master, who laughed boisterously and ordered Hazrat Malik to be brought before him. When Hazrat Malik was brought forward, the master was over-awed and asked, “What do you want?” In reply, he advised him to sell his handmaid to him. The master asked, “Can you pay her price?” Hazrat Malik replied, “For me her price is no more than two stones of dates.” On hearing this the whole audience began to laugh. The master asked, “What prompted you to fix this price for her?” He replied that there were many shortcomings in her. Upon the master’s request Hazrat Malik enumerated them thus: ‘If she does not apply perfume her body emits a foul smell. If she does not clean her teeth they begin to putrefy. If she does not comb her hair it becomes infested with lice. On becoming a bit older she would appear like an old woman not worthy to be loved. She menstruates. She makes water and relieves herself. In other words she emits all sorts of filth (spittle, mucus, saliva). She suffers from agonies and hardships. Being greedy, she shows her love to you merely for her self interests and material benefits. Today, if any loss is incurred by her due to you, the whole edifice of her love would crumble down in no time. She is based on falsehood. As soon as you breathe your last, she will sit by the side of another person and sing of her permanent and everlasting love for him, in the same way as she did for you. In contrast, I have a handmaid a thousand times better than your handmaid. Her price is very little. She is made of camphor’s essence. She has been fashioned out of musk and saffron. She is covered by pearls and light. If her spittle is cast in salty water, it will become sweet. Should she speak to a dead man, he would be revived. If her wrist is shown to the sun, it will suffer darkness and eclipse. If she visits a place of darkness, it will be illuminated. If she happens to appear in the world with all her elegance, the whole world will become fragrant. She is brought up in the gardens of musk and saffron. She has played amongst the branches of ruby and coral. Her abode is a place of great blessings. She drinks water from Tasnim (a fountain in paradise). She never backs out of her word. Her love is everlasting.” Hazrat Malik (rh) then asked the master to let him know which handmaid is more beneficial to him. All said unanimously that the handmaid described by Hazrat Malik (rh) was far more valuable. Then Hazrat Malik said, “Every one can afford to buy her at any time and in every age. The master set the maidservant free, and both of them bade farewell to the worldly pleasures and dedicated themselves to worship of Allah (SWT).

  41. Brother By Allah i am least interested in this system but this is creating hatred among the users. It looks instead of baning someone moderators have given authority to other users to humiliate and insult others with giving negative points to those users. I did not have any enemy on shiachat but now i have least three. Why? only and only because they gave negative repu to me and even if i do not care i feel bad about them now.

  42. (salam) brother i have not been giving you - points so your back lash at me is un called for. i try not to give anything except + points ;) in fact even though you just gave me many - points i will not give you any, because i do not find it permissible to - someone just because we disagree or are having a discussion, and i am telling you clear out what i think. i do not need a rep - or + to say that. :) so i only try to give + points when i see something i like. someone else gave you - it would be better to only use it for +'s these people who going around - everyone who mentions fadlallah are not our teachers so why should we follow them and - everyone who speaks otherwise. if we disagree then it is duly noted in the post it's self. (wasalam)

  43. ^ Good and bad is everywhere. Doesn't mean u lodge all of them in one group. You might never know when a person may turn over a new leaf. I have seen this happenning with my cousin so I know what I am talking about. One should have trust in Allah swt and instead of ignoring the whole idea of marriage because u fear u might hurt ur parents, u should strive towards NOT letting that happen.

  46. I clearly understand the downside of wanting to choose (once in a lifetime) spouse for yourself. We attach too much importance to many less important things, something we wouldn't normally do in an arranged marriage.

  47. That could be it I also think this 'freedom of choice' thing leads to problems because everyone wants to choose their own instead of accepting the one who approaches them. Arranged marriages aren't so bad...

  49. 1. Just the fact that you are attracted to practicing muslims is a good thing. 2. Don't be scared bro...a good majority of girls who are 21 and above and r still not married..they want to get married more than u do... if you think it is appropriate to approach em directly... then do that.. otherwise get someone else (your parents, friends, Imam of the mosque, admin....) involved. Now is the time to know more about her.... see if there is a compatibility between u two. 3. Just be honest to yourself and to her..... that the only reason you are talking to her is cuz you are looking for a life-partner.... not a gf !!! 4. If you like her, don't take forever to tell her that.... and if she likes you too... then it's time to move forward - propose her. Hope this helps :) WS

  50. There are several versions in fact, the numbers are heavily disputed, if you are only aware of one, it shows you have a limited understanding in this regard, perhaps increase your scope a little. You don't have to accept the other versions, but a the very least, you should know of them. He does not completely deny, as I've said time and time again. He cares because Israel is a corrupt state in the ME and butchers Muslims, Israel was created largely due to the occurrence of the holocaust.
