    The End Of Hezbo...

    They forgot to add a women in China had a miscarriage and Hizballah was the problem. Like Sayyed said the things people fabricate about Hizballah you wont even find in Hollywood movies. I actually feel sorry for the people that actually believe them. The best answer to all these people who make these things up is in the words of Sayyed..

    These were not comfortable, but for some reason all the girls wore them: The boys wore these: And EVERYONE wore these: My little sister liked the jelly shoes and owned them in all colors. I owned a pink pair, but didn't much like them, especially on cold days when they stiffened up. It was a couple years later that I inherited several pairs of chucks from my stepsister. I had purple, red, blue, and black. I wore those shoes daily, wore them until their soles fell off, glued them back on, and kept wearing them. I think the last pair finally passed all possibility of repair shortly after I

  7. I'm not married so my opinion may change after getting married but if I was a first wife, I would allow my husband to marry a second wife who needs support and find it difficult to remarry such as a divorcee/widow only because I understand how difficult it is to get married to a good man. This stance may very well change after I do get married and may become the "clingy" "possessive" type or if I feel our children (or myself) will need time to be with their father and having a second wife may not allow that. Of course the husband has to consent to it as well. If the husband suggested it to ful

  8. Although, not as old as the ones above but this is my first phone at age 13. It was the first Nokia flip phone. I still have it and despite the hundreds of scratches on it, crack on it's mini front screen and the numerous times that I dropped it throughout the years, it still functions well up until now, lol. Let's see if my iphone will survive that long the same way 10 years from now. :lol:

  9. This is one of those questions where either 'yes' or 'no' is the correct answer For the women who say no, there is nothing in the religion that would compel you to be a second wife. You can be a mumina and reach the highest levels of Iman and be raised with Fatima Zahra(a.s), InShahAllah all while never having to be a second wife. For the women who said 'yes', then there is nothing in Islam that is stopping you from this. You can be a mumina and reach the highest levels of Iman and be raised with Fatima Zahra(a.s), InShahAllah All while being a second wife The only problem I think we h

  10. You know how Endless made that pic with SC on it and i suggested that we make it the logo? well wouldnt that be a fun thing to do on a regular basis? to get members to create 'Shia Chat' logo pictures (photos or graphics) and have weekly competitions to change the logo? or is that going to be too much trouble for the Admin? (See, i told you i should be part of the development team) Yes :) 50 thrifty points to you, although you would have got more if you use one. They work really well for me and it is somwhow so satisfying to get every last bit out of the tube.

  13. Thank you to all of you for your responses. I am a bit saddened that some turned my questions into an opportunity to argue. In my initial post I expressed my discomfort with the practice of tatbir, to which I received responses that comforted me that I need not agree with such practices to be shia and that, indeed, I would not me alone in my disapproval. It does not particularly make sense to me that anyone would find it necessary to start refuting such comfort by getting defensive. Are you trying to push people away? Also, I must respectfully disagree with the gentleman who suggested that bei

  14. Of course there is nothing wrong with not wanting to be a second wife, or not wanting your husband to take a second wife. There is however is a problem with the language some people use to talk about this topic. Polygamy is allowed in Islam, and is part of the sunnah of the Prophet (as is monogamy). As such, I do not think it is acceptable to attack the practice, or to talk about married men who propose to another woman as if they are sexual predators.

  20. Ahlulbayt as chosen Guides, as the best people, as the light of Mohammad, as people God desires to keep nothing away from save the uncleanness while purifying them perfect purification, as our Leaders, as the way towards God, you say you love these people? The Quran says it's not Mohammad the disbelievers deny but it's rather the Ayatallah that disbelievers reject. The issue is they didn't have an issue with him as human, they even accepted him. They were however allergic to his status as God's chosen trustee and Guide towards himself. It's the same with deniers of Ahlulbayt station. Th

  21. Thanks, Endless, your words are much too kind and give me too much credit. I was only sharing my views after much thought and thinking. Sigh, shame that there are almost no Shia where I live. :/P.S. I am not too good to be true, there are people out there like me and credit goes to my mother for the person I am today.

  23. Wise Choices: - If you are right then there is no need to get angry. And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry. - Patience with family is love, Patience with others is respect. Patience with self is confidence. - Never think hard about the past. It brings tears. Don't think too much about the future. It brings fear. Live this moment with Allah in ur consciousness (taqwa) and a smile. -Every test in our life makes us bitter or better.Choice is ours.

  24. Salaam aleikum jami'an I thought we should have a thread, similar to the thoughts thread, devoted strictly to nostalgia. This could be nostalgia specific to your country/culture, or something general, or something specific to yourself or your family/friends. But I think we should lay down some rules: 1) No haraam stuff. I don't care how fun it was when you crashed your car while blasting "100 Miles and Runnin" on the stereo, don't bring it up here. 2) Don't insult other people's nostalgia. That's none of your beeswax. Let's begin. For the Iranians in the hous

    What Is "sleep" ?

    (salam) -even to the Gulf State monitor: What is sleep? Hard to experience when your littlest sister has a new, 8-day, squawk box (old Army slang for the radio --because when it powered it Squaaaaaaaaa -ked) As I wrote under Ate/Eating/Will Eat, yesterday it was 1500+ before I could get into car and go. Lebanese restaurant this time. But the other women bring their "auditory terrorists". It is not like an old cow that starts bellowing all night. You just go back to sleep knowing the dumb cow is smart enough to eventually figure it out. This 8-day old noises a staccato "ah-aahh, ah-a

  28. Salam. You have a good question and I look forward to this discussion. Most people think intention is very important, so there is a difference between someone frivolously smoking marijuana to get "high" and someone who has a medical condition that requires taking marijuana under a doctor's prescription.

  29. I have been asked many times about writing a book about my life, it has been very interesting life and I am blessed to have been given such abundances from :Allah swt. But I'm a very private man, and I keep away from people as much as I can, I suffered from a rare form of Autism in my younger years of life which made me "unique" with abilities that most don't have, but this had consequences in my development. Even now in my 50s when I'm in a crowded shopping centre, I feel sick and my head spins around when people start looking at me, I can feel everything from them, it is quite scary. All I h

  31. He's up for marriage. It happens here in Pakistan too - the gifts are just meant to make your daughter (and your family in general) feel good and comfortable about the guy's family -a sign that they approve of the union :) But if you aren't sure, just get your daughter to ask the guy (as politely as possible of course) about the gifts and why his family sent them.

  32. Thank you very much for long sharing long brief with me... I will keep hiding practicing my faith. I heard about Taqqiya, but again, I should keep learn the laws of practicing Taqqiya in the daily life. But when I practice Salah my self, I guess, this is not a problem. If you live in my country, if you say you are muslim, that means you are following what the common muslims do (which mean Mazhab Syafi'i). Alhamdulillah, Wudu and Salah was not difficult for me to perform in few weeks. I could memorize 3 Surahs (Surah Al-Fateeha, Surah Tawheed, and Surah Al-Falaq) although I should learn from

  34. “As far as the preference of Mohammedanism to Orthodoxy is concerned…, I can fully sympathize with such conversion. To say this might be strange for me who values the Christian ideals and the teaching of Christ in their pure sense more that anything else, I do not doubt that Islam in its outer form stands higher than the Orthodox Church. Therefore, if a person is given only two choices: to adhere to the Orthodox Church or Islam, any sensible person will not hesitate about his choice, and anyone will prefer Islam with its acceptance of one tenet, single God and His Prophet instead such complex

  38. Then go out of the room xD. Being too much time alone isn't good xP. You can do a lot of things in your free time, find a hobby. For example, I'm investing my time lately into learning more about cooking. Not only you have a good time and even socialoze with the person that teaches you but you also can make peiple happy through tasty foods. And its one of the best feelings we can have xD.

  47. Greetings, Yes, however in Islam praying is different from remembering constantly. Praying or Dua Is a request/ supplication. Salat the islamic 5 times a day which the english word unfortunately again is prayer , is actually God's command being done thru out the existence and creations .And if done properly we should be able to either witness the behind the scenes or get an understanding about it. Trying to remember something constantly is different. Zikr or remembrance is trying to remember and connect to the Creator who is doing all these great works, and to get to know who he is actually
