  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...

  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. I honestly think you need more time Brother. Yes, you need someone. Yes, you want someone. Yes, a woman in your life would seem to solve your problems, or so you think. But, you might have unrealistic expectations of what this potential young lady will be able to give you. What really sticks out to me is that you say "The only way I can move on to get married because I need that emotional support." That tells me you are willing to throw your soul, every fiber of your being into another woman, the same way you did the first time. I would love to tell you "Yes Brother, ask your parents, you can

  25. It doesn't matter especially because the holy Prophet (pbuh) was more closely related to Abu Lahab (l.a.). Kinship without right actions means nothing in Islam. And if it does mean anything then Bakris, of all people, should hold Imam Ja'far (as) in higher position than some Iraqi scholar of fiqh, since he is related to Abu Bakr? :)

Aus who said:,,,,, Then he (Yarfa') came again and said: What do you say about 'Ali and Abbas (who are present at the door)? He said: Yes, and permitted them to enter. ,,,,,, When the Messenger of Allah pbuh passed away, Abu Bakr said:" I am the successor(arabic wali ) of the Messenger of Allah pbuh." Both of you came to demand your shares from the property (left behind by the Messenger of Allah). (Referring to 'Abbas), he said: You demanded your share from the property of your nephe

  33. Salamun alaykum There are two discussions which are combined in your claim: First: the authenticity of Shia as a complete religious sect Second: the appearance of distinct teachings of Shia For the first discussion we should mention that the Shia theory informed by the prophet (pbuh) who had selected Ali (as) in the place of Qadeer although that was not the only place and the only time. يا أيهَا الرسول بَلغ ما أنزلَ إليكَ من ربك وَ إن لم تفعل فما بَلغتَ رسالته وَ الله يَعصمُكَ منَ الناس O Messenger!

  34. From this lecture series you could learn the basic of shia faith and law. And from these you can learn the basic biography of the imams You might as well use these in the mean time if u don't go hawza. Then later u can watch other videos and find new SHIA lectures on the internet. If you would to ask anyone here I'm sure plenty of people could give u names. So what I'm trying to say is you can still gain knowledge by also buying books or watching free lectures.

  42. Dear brother, the only thing that you are lacking is not enough knowledge. I would suggest you to research more before you make a decision. From the above posts of yours, It's easy to analyze that your knowledge is still less. You aren't seeing the whole picture. Yes, the caliphs did a lot of good things. Yes, they were praised. Yet they made a few mistakes. Even Sunnis admit that the Caliphs made those mistakes but the difference between them and us is that the Sunni scholars don't consider it a bad act because they say that the caliphs had a reason to do such things. Unfortunately, the reaso

  44. 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.
