  2. BEIRUT - Government forces backed by Hezbollah fighters took full control of the Syrian town of Yabroud on Sunday after driving out rebel fighters, state media said, helping President Bashar Assad to secure the land route linking the capital Damascus to the former commercial hub of Aleppo and the Mediterranean coast. The fall of Yabroud, the last rebel bastion near the Lebanese border, would also choke off a vital insurgent supply line from Lebanon and consolidate government control over a swathe of territory from Damascus to the central city of Homs.

  4. Oh boy, this will be a long one. First of all, marriage isn't economically viable, especially in today's time when prices are rising faster than the number of jobs available in the market. Sure, jobs exist should I decide to drive an oil tanker in Northern Canada, but yeah... I'd rather not. In other words, marriage is delayed cause careers are starting later, cause more education is required even in the most basic jobs and so on. And the other major reasons in this pathetically backward cultural baggage from 'back home'. Oh the wonders of this Pakistani culture, apparently my country wh

  6. Salam, I know there are many single brothers and sisters on SC. I also know that most of them want to get married. So maybe we can come up with a list of the 'top three' or 'top five' barriers to marriage in the modern world and propose some steps to overcome them. From my single days, I can tell you the top three things that delayed me getting married (which I regret now). This is from a male perspective. 1) Money, or lack of money and financial resources to support a family 2) Prejudice / Cultural baggage. I only want my daughter to marry an Iraqi, Lebanese, Iranian, Paki, etc. 3)

    Barriers For Marriage.

    Absolutely true. So I guess the parents are the ones who need to be educated, not the young adults. The sad thing is if nothing changes the next generation will have the exact same issues, all in the name of "I want my kids to have it better than I did."

  9. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمالسلام عليكم Yes, Abu Bakr was Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq (as)'s great great grandfather on his mother's side, his mother was Al-Sayyida Fatima Umm Farwa bint Al-Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr. A note though, Al-Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr was a Shi'a and a Thiqat Sahaba of Imam Ali ibn Al-Hussain Al-Zayn Al-Abidin, a Hadith is said for him in Kitab Al-Kafi: محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن عبد الله بن أحمد، عن إبراهيم بن الحسن قال: حدثني وهب بن حفص، عن إسحاق بن جرير قال: أبو عبد الله عليه السلام كان سعيد ابن المسيب والقاسم بن محمد بن أبي بكر وأبو خالد الكابلي من ثقات علي

  10. Salam brother, InshAllah others can give you their opinions about this, I just would like to ask you something. Would you believe that it is good or ethical, to get permanently married to a girl that will possibly give you all her heart right after marriage thinking you will as well but in the back of your head and in your heart you love someone else and you may think of someone else? I understand that someone may help you emotionally to get out of this but well, I personally would feel deceived and betrayed if a guy married me in a moment where he only needed me to move on, if she was to kn

  12. Including people by embracing our culture can be a very positive thing - but using culture as a reason to exclude others not of your race/ethnicity/culture (however it is expressed), is ultimately a very negative thing.

  13. Biggest barrier to marriage: Parents. Parents. Parents. And their idealistic and misguided expectations. You don't need much money to be married - if you are a self-sufficient adult before you marry, you will do fine. You don't need to marry someone from within your ethnicity or culture. Marry someone who has compatible goals and values. You don't need a degree or job to get married - but you do need plans, goals, and you need to be willing to work toward them. What you do need is to be flexible, compassionate, intelligent, and let go of all your expectations and just live as a

  14. There is an interesting book out by James Dunn called "Did the First Christians Worship Jesus?" ... in chapter 4 of that book he seems to suggest that Jesus was not God. Here is part of a review of the book that talks about Chapter Four: This chapter also includes treatment of key passages from Paul’s letters, such as Philippians 2:6-11 and 1 Corinthians 8:6. In the latter, Dunn highlights that one God is affirmed, and what is said about the one Lord uses prepositions indicative of agency (p.109). And in 1 Corinthians 15:24-28 it is felt to be particularly clear that “the kyrios title is n

  17. Salam, Barriers: Finishing education, alot of people like to focus at one thing a time. Female docters delay the most in my view because they have alot more studies. Their are men that are not supportive and dont care about education, some dont even approve of your degree, its like nothing to them. Some men are just jealous, and they dont want you to successed... Men taking your freedom away, meaning he wants to be incharge of ever little thing. Their is an extant to how much you can take charge of,you cant push the limit... Seeing faild marriages... You need to help your parents. I would like

  21. Salaam brother, Allah gave orders in the Qur'an, and those orders were explained by His Messenger (pbuh). There are many ayat that pertain to Imamate in the Qur'an, one of the most explicit ones is 4:59 (bismillah) "O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the messenger and those of you who are in authority (ulil amri minkum); and if ye have a dispute concerning any matter, refer it to Allah and the messenger if ye are (in truth) believers in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more seemly in the end." (4:59) Notice how both the Messenger and the Wali al-Amr share the same

  22. Bismehe Ta3ala, Wa Alikum Assalam wa rahamah. Please take this as a motherly advice and deactivate your fasidbook NOW. Of course you will stay depressed because as another person pointed out fb is all fake smiles and a show. Nothing wrong with asking your parents to help you look for a bride. You need to keep yourself busy and find something to keep your mind occupied. Brother, you don't have to fall in love with the girl you marry. The love part comes after marriage, Insh'Allah. Move on, you will be fine. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

  23. Lets us think from the point of view of the agrressor. The aggressor- He is talking on the phone and is looking for some privacy. He can walk to a secluded place and talk, but he does not. He decides to tell a kid to get away from his place. Why? He has something that you are not aware of. A gun or he himself is a martial arts expert or simply a bully and genrally gets away with what he wants. So he asks you to take a walk. Does he think you will retaliate? No, he believes not. Mainly because you are younger than him. What does that give him? Now that is a difficult question. Satisfaction, m

  24. I don't see a logical contradiction here. Someone who is a "city" of primordial knowledge doesn't need to have formal school education. At the same time, someone who never went to school, despite being a repository of cosmic knowledge, may be able to relate better to simple people who also didn't have formal education and relied more on intuition.

Noting that until 1946, the single pary period was there (founding other parties was banned by Mr. Ataturk and his successors, even in that period there were 14 times changes in the cabinet), it really is like every ONE year, we had a new government mostly through early elections and few with coups. Yes, we had numerous early elections, because, the so-called Independence Tribunals prosecuting every people who were against the government, the army attacks on Islamic revolutionary movements (e.g. Sheikh Sa

This is the biggest show case of that, ikhwan al muslimeen has been active in egypt for over 80 years. 80+ years of grass root level movement in egyptian society - and they couldnt even last 2 years. The backlash was so bad, they started burning their offices and killing ikhwan members in the streets, arrested every major ikhwan leader and deemed the entire organization an illegal terrorist group.

  32. However, there are people called agnostic atheists. Gnosticism has to do with knowledge claims. Theism has to do with belief claims. I would surmise that the vast majority of Muslims, Christians, Jews, etc will say "I know God exists." Therefore, they are gnostic theists. Rarely, you will hear someone come out and say "I don't know if God exists, but I believe in God." If they did, they would be agnostic theists. Most atheists don't say "I know God doesn't exist". If they did, they would be gnostic. But rather, they say "There is a lack of evidence so I don't believe in God." There are

    Syria - No End In Sight.

    The most, it is going to take the Syrian government and its allies is (2 years) to finish the job. By the end of summer-2014, the entire rebel strongholds will fall... then it is going to be pockets ambushes or bombings across the country for another 16 months or so... After Yabroud, I think Aleppo will be the target of the Syrian government.. which after a month or so of bloody battle will fall..once that happens, the rebels are done... East Syria and Kurdish regions are out of control because the government let it be and it does not want to be involved across the country.. those regions are

  39. The difference between this and Sunni Bida is that no Shia scholar says "you must do zanjeer zani" they are just saying it is allowed but they dont call it act of worship where as Sunnis heavily promote taraweeh and have added "Assalatu khairun minan nawm" into the religion. Also praying with arms closed and many other Bidas. So its really different.
