    Losing faith in Shiism

    I feel like I'm losing faith in shiism. So many things such as the building of shrines above the graves of the Imams never made sense to me and people calling out Imam Ali and not Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is reminiscent of what Christians do as in calling out Isa. Channels such as the Sunni defense and anti majos also negatively effects my faith. The thought of there being a chance that we could somehow be Mushriks by taking part in these things are quite concerning. Also things such as prominent Sunni scholars of the past whom are very educated have given fatwas denouncing Shias as being kafirs. In addition things such as the claim Shias are the dominant sect in Iran because of the invasion of the safavids and how a persian nationalist contributed to this as well is also very concerning. Also the claim that Shia hadith is inauthentic and there being anonymity in them unlike Sunni hadith with chains of narrators and clarity. What most worries me is the shirk committed by the aforementioned shrine visiting and the thought this is good for your religion and calling other than Allah. Need help quickly, thank you.

    Thoughts 2019

    About 35 years ago while hunting, I stopped and watched this barn owl moving from tree to tree. While standing there, l detected movement down to my right. At first l couldn't tell what it was, but it was a baby hoot owl that was storm blown out of somewhere and was down in this water up to its furcula -wishbone- with barely its neck above the water. Making a faint little noise, too. So, l pick it up and put that soggy thing in my hat and took it back to the farmhouse to give to my little sister. As I got close to the barns, every cat in the place ran over to me. These predatory felines must have ESP or something. About ten or twelve of them. So l get to the house and sister ain't home. By this time the cats are even leaping upwards for my hat. I can't put the owl down as the cats will run off with it, so I look around my sisters porch and find two boxes. I put a chair against her door, put a box there. Smack the cats away, set the owl in, put the second box over the first, put a chair on top of this and another chair against this. Then found something heavy to put on all of this. I had several things piled there. Sister said when they got home a couple hours later -as l remember- she knew l found something because the cats were climbing, pawing and scratching the ad hoc fortification, and one was hanging on the box by its teeth. She safely got the owl out and took it in the house where she raised it. She'd buy mice, and slaughter them at first. Then when the owl was old enough to perch on the door, she'd toss a mouse on the floor so it learned to hunt. She had it about a year l believe. lf she'd go outside, the owl would follow. The same when she went inside. One day when she was outside, 'hootie bird' -as she named it- started calling and when she looked up the owl flew away. It came back for a few minutes the following year, sat in the tree and hooted at her. Then permanently left. Thought: l did remember to double wash my hat out after hauling that bird. l used soap, too.

    Losing faith in Shiism

    I have a great sympathy for you who is only 15 year old and in such a situation. When I was 16 year old and were first time interested about Islam, I had no idea about Shia or Sunni, so most of my research came from Sunni sources when I'm actually born Shia. After reading some months from Sunni sources, I came to realize about tatbir, and I was very shock that I almost leave Shia'ism together. But Alhamdulillah I could not leave it because it was absurd to leave something based on some other people actions or lack of knowledge. So I started to seek knowledge about Shia Islam and that is how you can resolve your matter. To seek more and more knowledge and understanding before come to any hasty conclusion.

    Social Anxiety & The Mosque

    I have long been at a point with my AvPD (avoidant personality disorder) that I have not attended Jumah for months on end. I avoid praying in mosques at all costs unless I know I will literally miss the previous prayer time. For anyone that suffers from social anxiety, or just anxiety in general, how do you bring yourself to go to mosque? How do you manage to go out and not feel like a thousand eyes are burning into your skin? I can't even see myself going to Eid prayer. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think some parents force their children to go behind their backs, while different parents with the same situation might have their youngsters be open and honest with them. Also many parents are to blame. Being too strict will make their kids lie to them

    I think this is a problem the word Shia is associated with one group the way salafi is a methodology but now is associated with one type of Muslim.

    Beautiful man, taught by the most beautiful himself. This is how you act when you are raised, brought up, and taught by a Prophet of God. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and his teacher, the noble Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Alhamdulillah for having them as our guides and teachers.

    I am a Sunni looking for the truth

    There was positive interaction among all the main 12er Imams as well Eg Imam M,Baqir, J, Sadiq. Problem is a false narrative has been pushed due to politics. To the point where 12er marja like fadullah are critised for denying the burning of Bibi Fatima house.

    Exactly! Imam Malik and Abu Hanifa supported Zaidi Imams and their uprisings. There was positive interaction and even cooperation with schollars from other sects a well though I believe the sectarian lines weren't as harsh and concrete as nowadays.

    I am a Sunni looking for the truth

    Their concept of imamate is most consistent compared to others because of the following facts: 1) Imamate is indiscriminatory and confined to both sons of Imam Ali (KW) 2) Imamate should be established openly and publicly just as the Prophet and his predecessors established Islam and Islamic rulership openly and publicly. 3) Every generation should have an Imam who is in contact with his followers and vice versa.

    This is simply my main doubt about shiasm. A fundimental Usul that will make you a disbeliever, yet no where clearly in the Qur'an.

    Social Anxiety & The Mosque

    I remember when I was in college, we had to give presentation in one class and there was a hijabi Muslim girl who was crying by the end of presentation and she just ran out of class due to social anxiety. I miss those days when it was okay to have social anxiety. Working has become like doing a presentation in front of a group of people for 8 hours and no one understands the problem of social anxiety. People tell you "don't be shy" like there is a switch which you can just turn off and become confident.

    That notion is wholly untrue (assuming that that was the intent of that speaker - which if it was is a v irresponsible thing to say). Please don’t buy into it. Common sense and intellect is your 1st hujjah. There is beauty in every shade and color. There is no place for such ridiculous notions in our faith.

    Losing faith in Shiism

    Just go back to the beginning Can you proove a monotheistic creater Can you proove Qur'an and prophethood of Prophet Muhammad Can you proove Imam Ali was his successor by divine commandment or even by strong suggestion from the Prophet. If you can do all those you are Shia It's ok to doubt the rest. Just focus on you wajib. And keep studying. We all have doubts a different levels and from different points.

    Non-Prophet Imams? And Ahlul Bayt?

    No particular books apart from Qur'an When it comes to fundamentals of faith Qur'an after that hadith widely accepted. I can proove the succession of Imam Ali using Sunni exclusive hadith and accepted refferances in the Qur'an.. If the concept of 12 Infallible Imams all equally important and wajib to obey is true. Then the strength of evidence for the 12th Imam should be equal to the 1st.

    Miracles

    Salam ,because we don't have organised propaganda channel & channels that are telling about such miracles don't translate it to languages like as English also they don't consider it's validaty & documents although all miracles inshrines are recording by their archive but they hardly release it because they afraid of accusing to spreading superstition. For example the following miracle has unrefutable documents in Jmakaran mosque but bad positioning subtitles ruind it's message Miracle of healing Sunni boy by Imam Mahdi (aj) & becoming Shia & burying in Imam Reza (عليه السلام) shrine ,that Imam Mahdi (aj) said to him he will back to life when he reappears Lower quality with bad positioning subs High quality without subs

    The 'thighing' fatwa

    The 'thighing' fatwa

    This thread really belongs in the Islamic Law and Jurisprudence forum, but since this is a response to another thread in the Social/Family/Marriage There have been many detailed discussions of this topic of ShiaChat, the most recent is here. There are two points when it comes to this fatwa that must be considered. The first is the legal topic. I am posting this first, just so that brothers and sisters, who don't read the whole post know that having any sort of a sexual relationship (not only penetration, which is already clearly haram, no matter what spin you give to these fatawa) with a child who in non Baligh (under the age of 9) is haram, 100%. This is according to Imam Khomeni(رضي الله عنه), Sayyid Sistani(ha), and every other marjaa that I know of. We will talk about Sayyid Sistani in detail, because he is a living marjaa and most who are reading this are muqalid to him. In his book, A Code of Practice For Muslims in the West. I highly recommend this book. If you are going to read one book in the next 5 years, read this one. https://www.Sistani.org/english/book/46/ He states (as many other marjaa' state) that it is not permissible to violate the laws in a non Muslim country (any laws) so long as those laws do not directly contradict Sharia (Islamic law). Even the laws against speeding you are not allowed to violate (May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) forgive me because I think I have violated those laws on (oops) a few occasions) because these laws are a social contract, given the status of a contract in Islamic Law, and because they help to maintain order in the society. Since probably all of you or the vast majority of you(since this is an English Website) live in Western Countries with consent laws (it is 16 in the US where I live) these laws clearly state that it is illegal to have any type of sexual relationship with a boy or girl who is under the age of consent. This law does not contradict Sharia, since it is not wajib for a girl to get married at 9 years old or before, and not wajib for a boy to get married before 16. So according to Sayyid Sistani, this is haram if you live in a Western Country or a country with age of consent laws (I think almost every country in the world has these, except maybe Yemen and a few other countries). So those who live in a Western Country can stop reading here, unless you're interested in reading further. Even if you don't live in a Western country, and live in a place like Yemen, it is still highly doubtful whether actually acting on this 'thighing' clause would not be haram. That is because, although this fatwa is contained in the books, it is a discussion to a secondary point regarding another fatwa (as is pointed out by Br. Ali Hussein in the post above). This is not a fatwa that is meant to be acted upon. This is because in the discussion this 'thighing' is put with the conditions (should some weird person decide to act on it) that it does not cause harm to the child, nor is is considered immoral. Now, let me ask you, Oh someone who is considering doing this, how could you possibly say that this would not cause harm to the child (it definitely would cause deep psychological if not physical harm, as many studies on abused children have shown) or that it would not be considered 'immoral'. Whether something is immoral is based on current community standards in the place where someone lives. There may be a few isolated Bedouin or rural communities where this would not be considered immoral, but in 99.9% of communities it would be considered highly immoral. This is the marjaa' saying 'Don't consider doing this' even if you don't live in a place with consent laws. The second point is that, the only reason they did not say outright it is haram in all times and all places is because first, they did not find a strong hadith or aya from the Qur'an making it haram and the only way they could say outright that it is haram is through this evidence. A marjaa' who is worthy to be emulated is not going to make fatawa based on current opinion of the people. They are going to make it based on evidence. If they don't have evidence, they are not going to make a fatwa. Also, up until very recently it was common for girls in the Muslim world to get married in their early teens. It was also common in some places for girls to be 'betrothed' to a Wakil (guardian) before marriage age with the understanding that he would marry her once she was Baligh (physically mature). This is a practice that still goes on, but it is now uncommon even in most places in the Muslim world. For me personally, I am not a big 'fan' of this (non) fatwa, and I wish that Sayyid Sistani (may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) continue to bless him and prolong his life) would just come strait out and say 'This is haram', but I also respect his integrity in sticking to the well known principle of not declaring something haram without solid evidence. My faith in Islam or my faith in our marjaa' doesn't hinge on a single fatwa. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless all our marjaa' and prolong their lives and give them the best in this world and the hereafter.

    It's basically stealing from people who are more qualified for the services. If you are qualified like me (physical disability), it's not haram at all.

    1. There are examples of Imams chosen by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) from Prophets and also non Prophets. There weer also Imams, caliphs and leaders chosen by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in previous nations. Many verses describe it. The following verse describe the Imams who were not Prophets: وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا لَمَّا صَبَرُوا ۖ وَكَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا يُوقِنُونَ And We made of them Imams to guide by Our command when they were patient, and they were certain of Our communications. (32:24) In Mansab-e-Imamate whilst discussing ‘Maqaam Bashath Ghayr Nabi’ Shah Ismaeel Shaheed states that non Prophets were also appointed by non Prophets: Citing verse 12 of Surah Maida he states: “Allah did aforetime take a covenant from the Children of Israel and we appointed twelve Leaders among them – its clear that these representatives were not Prophets. Surah Yaseen verses 14-17 When We (first) sent to them two messengers, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, “Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you.” The (people) said: “Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie.” They said: “Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you: “And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message.” It is clear that these individuals were from amongst the disciples of Isa (عليه السلام) they were not Prophets. Surah Sajdah verse 24: And We appointed, from among them, leaders, giving guidance under Our command, so long as they persevered with patience and continued to have faith in Our Signs. ‘Mansab e Imamate’ by Shah Ismail Shaheed, pages 71-72  2. The answer is yes, because as per Qur'an no sinner is to be obeyed.  فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلَا تُطِعْ مِنْهُمْ آثِمًا أَوْ كَفُورًا Therefore wait patiently for the command of your Lord, and obey not from among them a sinner or an ungrateful one. (76:24) For the Imams / leaders who were Prophets, Qur'an provides the following evidence: وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُ إِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ نَافِلَةً ۖ وَكُلًّا جَعَلْنَا صَالِحِينَ And We gave him Ishaq and Yaqoub, a son's son, and We made (them) all good. (21:72) وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْهِمْ فِعْلَ الْخَيْرَاتِ وَإِقَامَ الصَّلَاةِ وَإِيتَاءَ الزَّكَاةِ ۖ وَكَانُوا لَنَا عَابِدِينَ And We made them Imams who guided (people) by Our command, and We revealed to them the doing of good and the keeping up of prayer and the giving of the alms, and Us (alone) did they serve; (21:73) The leaders / Imams who were not Prophets, are mentioned in the following verses: وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا مُوسَى الْكِتَابَ فَلَا تَكُن فِي مِرْيَةٍ مِّن لِّقَائِهِ ۖ وَجَعَلْنَاهُ هُدًى لِّبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ And certainly We gave the Book to Musa, so be not in doubt concerning the receiving of it, and We made it a guide for the children of Israel. (32:23) وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا لَمَّا صَبَرُوا ۖ وَكَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا يُوقِنُونَ And We made of them Imams to guide by Our command when they were patient, and they were certain of Our communications.(32:24) It is also interpreted that Imams/leaders in children of Israel were twelve leaders appointed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى): وَلَقَدْ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ مِيثَاقَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَبَعَثْنَا مِنْهُمُ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ نَقِيبًا And certainly Allah made a covenant with the children of Israel, and We raised up among them twelve chieftains; (5;12) It is confirmed that Imams from the Prophets and those of non Prophets were chosen for the guidance of the people by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). All Prophets are infallible thus in the light of above verses, the Imams appointed for the guidance of the people (other than Prophets) are also infallible like the infallible Prophets (however the level of their infallibility is not mentioned in Qur'an). It also provides the evidence that fallible Prophet / Imam does not exist in Qur'an. 3. The Qur'an in Sura Al baqra (2:30) mentions that Prophet Adam AS was chosen as Caliph by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). There was no shura conducted for the appointment of the caliph. The following link can be seen for further details: There were about than 124,000 Prophets but only a few of them actually governed in the land. The same is the case with 12 Imams chosen by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) from the progeny of the Prophet saw 4. ٩_١٠٠ وَٱلسَّٰبِقُونَ ٱلْأَوَّلُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُهَٰجِرِينَ وَٱلْأَنصَارِ وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّبَعُوهُم بِإِحْسَٰنٍۢ رَّضِىَ ٱللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا۟ عَنْهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّٰتٍۢ تَجْرِى تَحْتَهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَآ أَبَدًۭا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ ٱلْفَوْزُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ And (as for) the foremost, the first of the Muhajirs and the Ansars, and those who followed them in goodness, Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, to abide in them forever; that is the mighty achievement. (9:100) Who are foremost? The first one who accepted/exhibited his Islam and prayed with the Prophet Muhamamd saww 7 years before others is Imam Ali As. He also migrated. His role on the night of Hijra is also unforgettable because of sleeping on the bed of the Prophet Muhammad when all the kufrars were gathered for killing of the Prophet (Naooz Billah). It is well known that ‘Ali was the first Muslim. lbn Hisham recorded that ‘Ali Ibn Abu Talib was the first male to believe in the Messenger of God and that he prayed with him while he was 10 years old.2 It is reported that when the time of prayer came the Messenger used to go outside Mecca accompanying ‘Ali to offer their prayer then come back in the evening. It is reported that Anas Ibn Malik said: "The Messenger was commissioned on Monday and ‘Ali believed in him on Tuesday."3 Muhammad lbn Majah in his Sunan and Al-Hakim in his Mustadrak reported that ‘Ali said: "I am the servant of God and the brother of His Messenger and I am the greatest believer in his Prophethood. No one says this after me but a liar. I prayed seven years before the rest of the people."4 Al-Hakim reported that Salman Al-Farisi said that the Messenger of God said: "The first one of you to drink from the Basin on the Day of Judgement is your first Muslim ‘Ali son of Abu Talib."5 Imam Ahmad Ibn Hunbul recorded that Maaqal Ibn Yasar said that the Messenger of God said to his daughter Fatima: "Would it not please you that I have married you to the first Muslim in my nation their most knowledgeable and their wisest?"6 https://www.al-Islam.org/brother-Prophet-Muhammad-Imam-Ali-Mohammed-Jawad-chirri/4-first-Muslims ٥٨_٢٢ لَّا تَجِدُ قَوْمًۭا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْءَاخِرِ يُوَآدُّونَ مَنْ حَآدَّ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَلَوْ كَانُوٓا۟ ءَابَآءَهُمْ أَوْ أَبْنَآءَهُمْ أَوْ إِخْوَٰنَهُمْ أَوْ عَشِيرَتَهُمْ ۚ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ كَتَبَ فِى قُلُوبِهِمُ ٱلْإِيمَٰنَ وَأَيَّدَهُم بِرُوحٍۢ مِّنْهُ ۖ وَيُدْخِلُهُمْ جَنَّٰتٍۢ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ رَضِىَ ٱللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا۟ عَنْهُ ۚ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ حِزْبُ ٱللَّهِ ۚ أَلَآ إِنَّ حِزْبَ ٱللَّهِ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ You shall not find a people who believe in Allah and the latter day befriending those who act in opposition to Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their (own) fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kinsfolk; these are they into whose hearts He has impressed faith, and whom He has strengthened with an inspiration from Him: and He will cause them to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding therein; Allah is well-pleased with them and they are well-pleased with Him these are Allah's party: now surely the party of Allah are the successful ones. (58;22) Who are the party of Allah ie Hizab Ullah? The following verses verify and made it clear: إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُۥ وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱلَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَهُمْ رَٰكِعُونَ ٥_٥٦ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ ٱللَّهِ هُمُ ٱلْغَٰلِبُونَ Only Allah is your Vali and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow. And whoever takes Allah and His messenger and those who believe for a guardian, then surely the party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant. (5:55~56) Thus it provides the clear evidence that those who have followed Imam AS are those who have got the pleasure of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Likewise from the above verses it is confirmed that the followers of Imam Ali Wali as and those who have followed 11 Imams after Imam Ali as are the party of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who will be triumphant. Also from the same Sura no. 5 the following verses also explain it: ٥_١١٩ قَالَ ٱللَّهُ هَٰذَا يَوْمُ يَنفَعُ ٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ صِدْقُهُمْ ۚ لَهُمْ جَنَّٰتٌۭ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَآ أَبَدًۭا ۚ رَّضِىَ ٱللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا۟ عَنْهُ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ ٱلْفَوْزُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ Allah will say: This is the day when their truth shall benefit the truthful ones; they shall have gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide in them for ever: Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Allah; this is the mighty achievement. (5:119) Obeying Wali is mandatory. It clarifies that obeying Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) the Prophet Muhamamd and Imam Ali as is also mandatory being Wali of believers. After Imam Ali as obeying 11 Imams is also mandatory in the light of hadith of the Prophet Muhamamd saw. wasalam

    I have a question.

    Never ever trust anybody who calls their translation 'sahih'. Many scholars across all schools of Islamic thought have said that while 4:34 can mean 'strike', in no other time is a word with the root used does it mean 'to hit'. Ahmed Ali and Dr.. Tahirul Qadri for example have found it to mean other things that do not involve violence such as a temporary parting, time apart to cool down if you will. Many have tried to justify the verse of beating by saying you can tap them lightly with a miswak, but this doesn't really make sense because sleeping in separate beds seems worse than being tapped by a stick lightly, don't you think? As for 9:5, you'll find various interpretations in order of severity: 'you may fight the polytheists' (suggests that you don't have to kill them or fight them) [The Monotheist Group, 2011, 2013 ed.] 'fight the pagans' (suggests you have to fight them but not kill them) [Farooq Malik] 'fight them to the end and capture them' (you have to fight them until they get tired) [Bijan Moenian] 'If the idolaters are still aggressing [...] subdue them wherever you find them' (suggests you should take them under control or quieten them, could mean kill, could mean fight, could mean neither.) [Shabbir Ahmed] 'Kill the polytheists who violate their treaties' (suggests you don't kill all polytheists, just some) [The Clear Qur'an] 'Slay the idolaters.' [Pickthall] So you can see that interpretation really changes the whole dynamic.

    I am a Sunni looking for the truth

    Mostly due to their treatment of the ahl al-Bayt. The list includes: Abu Bakr conspiring with Umar to take the caliphate, then paying him back by handing it to Umar after his death, despite 'Ali being made master over them both at Ghadir Khumm. Abu Bakr saying that Prophet's do not leave inheritance and demanding Fatimah prove that Fadak (a gift from Muhammad ) belongs to her. Surely, isn't the burden of proof on Abu Bakr? Abu Bakr being complicit in the attack on 'Ali's house. Umar denying the Prophet (s) a paper and a pen in his final days to write a document so the Muslims "would never go astray". Umar threatening 'Ali and forcing him to pledge allegience. Umar ordering the striking Fatimah with a whip. Umar taking the Khumms away from the ahl al-Bayt. Umar innovating agaisnt the Sunnah (Tarawih prayers, changing the azaan, insulting the Prophet's geneology, wiping feet with socks on in wudhu, praying junub etc). The matter is very confusing my brother because there are many forged hadiths in the Sahih Sunni books which were later written by Muawiyah and 'Amr ibn Al-As, two very sketchy characters who fought 'Ali in his time. Mu'awiyah would pay people like Abu Hurayrah to create hadiths in his favour, notice all the hadiths take the from Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and sometimes Ali... They tried to hide the truth but the Shi'a Imams have made it clear in our sources and you can see shades of these actions of Abu Bakr and Umar in the Sunni sources. Hate is never a good thing but there are a lot of bitter feelings I think from the Shi'a side for the actions of Abu Bakr and Umar.

    Social Anxiety & The Mosque

    I know how it feels like, I have social anxiety till now. I’m trying my best to fight it. The mosque I attend is small, there is few people so I never had any anxiety. I have a big terror when I pray in prayer room where both Sunnis and Shias can pray, but they (Sunnis) never attacked me so since few months I feel comfortable praying infont of others. I recommend you to start attending Friday prayers, you should try it. Edit:- Oh my God, just now I remember last year I went to Sunni Mosque for Eid prayer, I will never forget that day

    Losing faith in Shiism

    Salam First of all brother, you are just like me uneducated in Islamic theology. As long as you do not know the truth and your searching, you believe in the shahada and pray etc, then your a Muslim. These Sunni scholars most likely are doing takfeer on Shi’a scholars and not on laymen like me and you. I’m also sometimes feeling like shiasm is not right, but I research Islam at the moment. One thing I can say, is that the Sunni Defence are a brunch of laymen and do not just watch their vids, as an ayatollah would destroy them without even opening one book. Keep in mind that sunnism has lots of flaws too. You can be a Shi’a even if you do not call upon the Imams (عليه السلام). When I read the Qur'an, I see verses where Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) critisizes those who call upon other than Him and that’s why I refrain from this practice of calling upon other than Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Again, you can be a Shi’a, without these “mushrik” practices. When Iran was first made Muslim, they were Sunnis, which is also very weird to me.

    I need to meet these desis you speak of! Maybe it's me, maybe when I'm gone they throw an akhlaq party.
