  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.

  3. حدثني محمد بن قولويه القمي، قال حدثني محمد بن بندار القمي، عن أحمد بن محمد البرقي، عن أبيه محمد بن خالد، عن أحمد بن النضر الجعفي، عن عباد بن بشير، عن ثوير بن أبي فاختة، قال : خرجت حاجا فصحبني عمر بن ذر القاضي و ابن قيس الماصر و الصلت بن بهرام، و كانوا إذا نزلوا منزلا قالوا انظر الآن فقد حررنا أربعة آلاف مسألة نسأل أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) منها عن ثلاثين كل يوم، و قد قلدناك ذلك، قال ثوير فغمني ذلك حتى إذا دخلنا المدينة فافترقنا، فنزلت أنا على أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) فقلت له جعلت فداك ابن ذر و ابن قيس الماصر و الصلت صحبوني و كنت أسمعهم يقولون قد حررنا أربعة آلاف مسألة نسأل أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) عن

  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

    5 Broken Cameras

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K-mGWy9iUg 5 Broken Cameras is a 94 minute documentary film co-directed by Palestinian Emad Burnat and Israeli Guy Davidi. It was shown at film festivals in 2011 and placed in general release by Kino Lorber in 2012. 5 Broken Cameras is a first-hand account of protests in Bil'in, a West Bank village affected by the Israeli West Bank barrier. The documentary was shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. In 2009 Israeli co-director Guy Davidi joined the project. Structured

  25. ^BS I never liked any type of Baathist, and the Shias going into Syria has nothing to do with Assad's power or the Syrian government. But even though I do not like Baathists as I said, I see their presence a good thing to face Salafi-dogs, the animals who carried on 100s of crimes on daily basis... Shias are too good to fight these terrorists... You need brutal Baathists vs Brutal Saudi-Zionist backed terrorists... Wait till things are settled, then we'll see how many lessons the Takfiris will get from the Syrian Mukhaberat...

  26. You shouldnt feel bad - a smart person chooses their fights very carefully. There are people in this world with personal and social issues who are walking around with a lot of insecurity, frustration and anger. They get there little kicks and fixes where they can and casual rudeness is often one of the ways they try and reassure themselves that they matter. The most important thing is to not let them transfer their problems onto your shoulders. The best way to deal with such people is to smile (a nice cheesey one) and make a light hearted quip. See it for how silly it is and move on safe in th

It bears a big stamp of Karachi (unending violence) Syed (royally special) Urdu (best language, others are rotten) mentality through and through. So all you can do is give more figurative heart attacks to the 'old guard'. They have lived their life, doing whatever, and now it's your turn to live your life, and like in East in East (film), when the Pakistani father scolds his sons for being "bad Pakistanis", he gets told, 'but dad, we're not Pakistani; We're British' :D In the eyes of some, that puts in you in the burger category so it's not some

  31. In the English language, atheism is a belief - the belief that there is no God (or gods). My dictionary describes an atheist as someone who believes that God does not exist. Another dictionary defines an atheist as a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings. The word atheism is defined as the doctrine or belief that there is no God.

    Barriers For Marriage.

    There are lots of positive promotion to be married – but you asked for Barriers! -_- I totally agree with your general barriers that you listed – money, ethnicity (and also lots of mixed ethnicity nowadays - oh no!! :o ) and lack of acceptance of temporary marriages. Barriers (self imposed) to nikah marriage for women: Distrust – need to make sure Plan B is firmly in place – school, training, jobs.Loss of independence and freedom of choice – which, ironically, you get used to having when in school, training and jobs…Possible abusive situation from husband or his family – this could be a

  44. 20,000 ? These numbers are grossly exaggerated. History is built on documented proof, not made up numbers. Take a look at the Amnesty International report about the executions, here is what they found from their investigation: So what we see is that in reality, the numbers of people executed - that names have been provided for, does not reach higher than 2,000 people, and this is according to Amnesty International. The only groups advocating very high numbers are MKO and other related oppasition groups. The executions took place after MKO invaded iran - with Iraqi support, after Iran already
