    Happy Eid everyone!!! I'm happy to announce on this joyous occasion that I've just launched a website that contains and displays the Hadith from the Ahlulbayt(عليه السلام). The link is: https://ahlulbayt-hadith.com/. Reason for making this website: So far I've been using https://www.al-islam.org/ and their website is great. However, it can be hard to only search for ahadith as there are many other content that gets parsed in their website. For this purpose, I thought that it might be useful to have a website dedicated solely to the hadith of the Ahlulbayth (عليه السلام). Additionally, the sunni hadith books have such websites so I thought that we should also make our hadith books available online. Current features: Over 3000 hadiths from Usul Al-Kafi with complete chains and references. The ability to search by keywords through the hadiths. Navigate from one hadith to the next. Features that I plan to add soon: Bihar Al-Anwar and other classic Shia hadith books Arabic ahadith Complete hadith book viewer in the browser Screenshot: Please check this website out and let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement or any comments!

    Homosexuality

    I think one problem is that many of us, contemporary Muslims, look at issues like this from a mixed perspective; part traditional and part modern. This is how people would have looked at things traditionally (I will use 'past tense' verbs for the traditional perspective, simply because it was more common in the past; not because I think it is outdated, or that it doesn't exist anymore). 1/ Traditionally, people were not categorised into heterosexual, homosexual, etc. I was previously under the impression that, back then, people just didn’t know about same sex attraction. The complete opposite is true. Same-sex attraction was very common in pre-modern Islamic societies; there is plenty of evidence from literature. The fuqaha often wrote as if everyone was capable of being attracted to both sexes. They did not see ‘same sex attraction’ as a disease or an anomaly, but instead as a desire that can exist in any individual; but which should be subdued, not entertained; same as ‘opposite sex’ attraction (unless the attraction is directed at your spouse). 2/ The words homosexual/homosexuality did not exist in traditional Muslim languages; instead, you had the term liwat which is far more specific than the modern concept of homosexuality. Liwat is an action, not an identity. It is something people do, not something people are. Liwat is not something that only a particular group of people can do. Any person can (but shouldn’t) commit this sin, the same way anyone can (but shouldn’t) commit fornication, drink wine, eat pork, etc. 3/ Traditionally, marriage was primarily about lawful sex (which can only be heterosexual islamically) and procreation. Love was a bonus. People didn’t enter marriages with the expectation to find love. If they found love along the way, it was seen as a good thing; but the point of marriage was having halal sex and producing offspring. Besides, there were other practical considerations. Men needed someone to cook, clean and take care of children. Women needed someone to support them and their children financially. So, marriage was essentially a business deal where the two parties agreed to satisfy each other’s sexual and financial needs. If love appeared on the way, it was a welcome guest. If it didn’t appear (as long as there was mutual respect, kindness and understanding), no big deal. 4/ Love and sex were not conflated as much as they are today. You could have sex with someone and not be in love with them (and that was okay); you could love someone intensely and not have sex (and this was also okay). The modern outlook is the complete opposite: (1) People are categorised into different ‘sexual orientations’; (2) Homosexuality is seen as a way of being, not an action. (3) Marriage is primarily about romantic love, not procreation. (4) Love and sex are seen as completely intertwined. People don’t often like the idea of sexless romantic love or loveless sex, i.e. sex merely out of duty with someone you're not attracted to. I'm not going to argue which perspective is better or superior to the other; but all of these differences in perspective will have implications for the debate. We should identify which parts of our thinking are traditional and which parts are modern; as I said earlier, most modern Muslims have a mixed perspective.

    The “HaHa” reaction is appropriate for posts intended to be funny and lighthearted, like the Poor Jokes topic. However, it has been noticed that it's sometimes used by members to mock serious posts of others who have different opinions. This is not appropriate, and members should use “Disagree” instead. If a member does this rarely, the reaction on that post can be removed by an admin with no further disciplinary action. If a member does it repeatedly, there could be a warning. However, if this becomes too widespread, then the reaction may be removed altogether from the site, and nobody will be able to use it.

    What an confused Ummah it have become. We read verses where Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) insist us to forgive non-believers, but when it comes to Muslims themselves, the forgiveness and approval is far and the insulting and unforgiven is common.

    What is wrong with you?

    I agree that the modern day interpretation of 'standing against oppression' is mainly lip service, outdated slogans and repetitive self-congratulatory marches and events. We need to think of more effective methods. Spamming people's whatsapp with repetitive videos/slogans and blocking up traffic with generic marches is not really doing the job.

    I will stand with anyone from any faith or lack thereof, in support of justice. I will not pay respects to the enemies of Allah Ta'ala and the killers of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) nor do I need to 'slander' them as that's not the Akhlaq of our Imams (عليه السلام). I also refuse to dilute my Aqeeda for a supposed 'unity' when true unity can only be achieved under the Wilaya of the Straight Path Imam Ali (عليه السلام). Ultimately, it's our responsibility as lovers of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) to emulate their Akhlaq as that's the only way we can fight the sheer ignorance and hate around us. Finally, please recite Surat AlFatiha once and Alikhlas thrice for Aya Hachem, it will be the best gift for her inshallah.

    Mawla Abbas (عليه السلام) delivered this sermon on the roof of the Kaaba when Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) was departing from Mecca on the 8th of Zil Hajj 60 AH to go towards Karbala. All praise is for Allah (azwj) who honored Baitullah (house of Allah) with the arrival of the Father (Ali asws) of My Master Imam Hussain (asws). This house was nothing more than a house of stone before the appearance of Ameerul Momineen (asws). After Ameerul Momineen (asws) appeared in the Kaaba, it then became the qibla. O’ wretched kafirs and oppressors! You are not allowing the Imam (asws) of the pious to visit the Kaaba. The one has the most right to do so. If it was not for the command of Allah and not for the unseen mysteries of Allah and if Allah had not willed that His creation would be tested, then this Kaaba would have uprooted itself and flown to My Master, but My Mawla (asws) came here Himself and honored the Kaaba. Verily, people kiss Hajr e Aswad (black stone) and Hajr e Aswad kisses the hands of My Mawla (asws). The will of Allah is the will of My Mawla (asws). The will of My Mawla (asws) is the will of My Allah. I swear by Allah if it were not for this, then I would have attacked you the way the eagle attacks the sparrows. I would have cut you into pieces. Are you trying to compete with those who played with death during their childhood? Imagine! How brave must they be to do such a thing in their youth. May Allah sacrifice me upon My Mawla (asws) who is the Master of the entire universe. O’ people! What has happened to your intellect? Do you not recognize what is the difference between the family of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and the family of yazid (l.a)? On one side is the family of yazid (l.a) who drinks alcohol and on the other side is the Master and Owner of the Pool of Kauthar. On one side are people whose house is the incarnation of evil and impurity and on the other side are those who are the incarnation of purity and They are the owners of revelation and Quran. You are repeating the same mistakes that the Quraish committed. They planned to kill RasoolAllah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and you are planning to kill the Son of RasoolAllah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). The Quraish were not successful in their evil schemes because they could not overcome Ameer ul Momineen (asws). Now how can it be possible for you to kill Abu Abdullah al Hussain (asws) when the Son of That Ali (asws) is the protector of the Son of RasoolAllah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)? If you have the courage, then come and try to kill Me. Then you will be able to fulfill your evil desires. I swear by Allah (azwj) as long as I am alive you will never be successful. May Allah (azwj) send His wrath upon you, your forefathers, and your offspring! May Allah (azwj) curse you, your forefathers, and your offspring! Ref- (Manaqib Sada al Karam by Syed Ainularafeen Hindi)

    Salam, I find it interesting how people find that they were never extroverts until they forced themselves to go out and spend time around others. Sometimes these labels are unhelpful and don't encourage us to push ourselves outside our comfort zones. If someone struggles with social anxiety, then this "introvert label" can force that person to stay the same. In fact, many people with social anxiety would love being around people if it wasn't for their anxiety. However, they've accepted this "introvert" label - and it doesn't help them. I just feel we shouldn't be too strict on these labels. Sometimes if a kid is always stuck at home reading books, maybe parents should encourage their kids to be more social and not be so caught up in their own imaginary world. It's always good to change things around and experiment. Likewise, extroverts shouldn't feel weird spending time alone and being like introverts. Do you guys agree?

    salaam, i wish i had better understanding of what you wanted... prayers on their own are imho not enough, they require action... for example if pray to pass an exam and don't study, of course I can't pass. if i pray for a wife but don't make myself a mature and responsible being, then it may never happen... also consider this that you must earn/work for what you want. how does a non praying person achieve their goals? a person that doesn't believe in God takes responsibility and goes after what they want. so I would say continue praying but also go after what you want by looking at what factors will get your goal.

    Jeez.. four pages!! There is lanah in Ziyarat e Ashura. This Ziyarat is considered authentic. Those of you whole feel like doing Lanah go and recite Ziyarat e Ashura, will get you lots of sawab and added worldly benefits or recite Quran, verse 9:67- 68 for example. Again the rewards for Quran recitation are numerous. Those who don't want to do lanah carry on as usual. Problem solved.

    Imam Ali (عليه السلام) has defined Eid as: 'Any day that is free of rebellion (or disobedience) against Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).' Imam Al-Baqir (عليه السلام) also reminded us of the sadness that accompanies the day of Eid, the sadness of the usurpation of the rights of the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) and the violation of human rights. The Imam of our Time, Imam Al-Asr (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف), has captured this sadness in the Du'a Nudbah (Supplication of Lamentation), which has been recommended to recite on Eid.

    Is the Qur'an incomplete?

    Salam Alykum!, Yes the Quran is 100% complete. Before the Quran was written, it was memorized and written on scribes. When the Prophet died, he advised Imam Ali to collect all the scribes and compile the Quran into one book. However, Abu Bakr who was the first caliph along with Uthman assigned Zaid ibn Thabit to compile the Quran using scribes, and persons who had memorized parts, and fully the Quran. This was because after the prophets death, wars were being fought as Islam was expanding and many Quran reciters were passing away. Thus preservation of the Quran was essential. Imam Ali presented his compiled Quran to Abu Bakr, but he rejected it.... we don't really know what was the difference between Imam Ali's collection, and the collection of Zaid Ibn Thabit. Maybe it was the arrangements of the Surahs, or commentary on the sides of the pages. However, it is very important to note the Imam Ali's collection , and Zaid Ibn Thabit's collection contains ALL the Surahs correctly. Maybe this is where the misconception stems from that Shia believe the Quran is incomplete??? But like I said, this is only a misconception. Anyways, hope you enjoyed my brief history lesson. WS.

    That being said, we must be honest, it won't stop killings or hatred in the slightest. At the end of the day, they will always wrongfully think we are doing Shirk and Bi'dah. They are the majority so they wrongfully think they are Orthodox. They assume their narrative is "what really happened" and they don't second guess it. Anything opposite to it is unfathomable for them. It's no use, we throw them the best arguments, and it hits the wall like spaghetti. We should keep promoting these arguments (it is the right thing to do in itself and there will always be a few who become guided through it) but by and large I doubt things will change much until the return of Imam al-Mahdi.

    I live in Malaysia, not too far from Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur. There are more than 7 big universities (government and private) close to my place, many recreation places, good public transportation (MRT, LRT), few hospitals and public health centre, 30 minutes to International Airport (KLIA 1and 2), many Mosques, 1.5 drive to the beach, 15 min to one of the biggest shopping mall in Malaysia, and peaceful.... i know majority of followers of Ahlulbayt in Malaysia, but I am a low profile person. I was offered a good job in the US (Koch Ind Inc, the largest private business in the US) after I graduated, but i turned down and happy to be in Malaysia. That way a right decision. But, nothing is better than walking from Najaf to Karbala for 72 km.... I am very grateful to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for all the Blessings.

    Many things to do, Bicycling with my wife (2.5 hrs..30km) on weekend. In the process of making electric fence to keep monkeys from attacking the garden. Making small tropical fish pond. Writing technical articles and share my experiences. Cleaning and repairing the house, and ensure the grass is cut nicely. Give business strategies to coworkers during economic slow down, and everything is online. Get in touch with clients. Facilitate online workshops. There are 4 monitors and two computer setups in my house computer room with good ergonomics. Repair and do maintenance on my cars, motorcycles, bicycles, grass cutters, and electrical and electronic equipment. Spend time on astronomy software and get update what is on the sky tonite. Looking on way to get free water using ram pump and having a drone to monitor community area. Ensure that body weight is under controlled, my aerobic fitness is high and not having acute or chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Chose the tv programs to watch...all these Aalims are knowledgeable and speak with good English. The list can go on and on... The fun part, everything is done by myself, alone. Even cutting and trimming my own hair. No longer need to go to barber shop (no barber shops are opened). If not due to lockdown, i will not able to do all these activities and enjoy it. Alhamdulillah...

    My continuing mission encompasses several projects in it with self sufficiency in its title. Energy and food independence and including sharing these technologies. Another is to share the light of knowledge. I have taught local younglings for free in my spare time with O and A levels / high school. My dear friend who had this field going and was a professional teacher died in his prime so this aspect is now beginning to suffer. I help people find careers and jobs for free. I am caretaker of the local Shia mosque committee, part of Imam bargah council and looking after, repairing and protecting the graveyard voluntarily. These days with the help of a rich and powerful like-minded person I am about to start a library adjacent to the mosque for which we have the oldest Islamic books in hard copy form as well as good secular books and I need only a desktop computer and a sizeable screen to complete its inventory. My dream is to make our small community produce good individuals known for something instead of producing ignorant garbage like all the rest. We want our people to receive all their rights. These days the social work has pretty much come to a screeching halt due to corona pandemic though and there is a sudden spike in crime too. Our community is comprised of Shia, Sunni, Wahabi and Christians. Except Wahabis the rest cooperate with each other admirably and it is joyful to witness. I hope I will be able to make my mark here before leaving this world. There is a little opposition, notably drug sellers whom I wish to remove from here somehow, another thing on my list of achievements before I die. Sadly the authorities are in bed with all sort of crime bosses at all levels in our country. Our provincial law minister for 5 years was recently arrested transporting narcotics. Our PM was convicted for extensive corruption among other crimes. Only two examples but this whole nation is like Sho'aib's nation, very corrupt, including our courts and lawl enforcement. So you can imagine.

    How men of knowledge are ruined

    How the Men of Knowledge are Ruined Caution and fear are the legacy of knowledge and its measure; knowledge is the ray of gnosis and the heart of belief. Whoever is denied caution is not a man of knowledge, even if he can split hairs in dealing with obscure items of knowledge. Allah said, Only those of His servants who are possessed of knowledge fear Allah. (35:28) Men of knowledge are ruined by eight things: greed and miserliness, showing off and partisanship, love of praise, delving into things whose reality they cannot reach, affectation by taking excessive pains to beautify their speech with superfluous expressions, lack of modesty before Allah, boastfulness, and not acting upon what they know. ‘Isa (‘a) said, 'The most wretched of all people is he who is known for his knowledge, not for his actions.' The Holy Prophet said, 'Do not sit with every presumptuous caller who summons you from certainty to doubt, from sincerity to showing off, from humility to pride, from good counsel to enmity, and from abstinence to desire. Draw near to the person with knowledge, who summons you from pride to humility, from showing off to sincerity, from doubt to certainty, from desire to abstinence, from enmity to good counsel.' None are fit to preach to creation except that person who has gone beyond these evils by his truthfulness. He sees the faults of speech and knows what is sound from what is unsound, the defectiveness of thoughts, and the temptations of the self and his fancies. 'Ali said, 'Be like the kind, compassionate doctor who places the remedy where it will be of benefit.' They asked ‘Isa (‘a), 'With whom shall we sit, O Spirit of Allah?' 'With one the sight of whom reminds you of Allah,' he replied, 'and whose speech increases you in knowledge, and whose actions make you desire the next world.' IMAM SADIQ AS

    Regardless of what one's position is on temporary marriage, I find it weird that many men prefer to marry a virgin woman, but when the woman has the same preference, her faith is questioned. If a woman doesn't want to be with a man who has been with other women before, she is entitled to her preference.

    They accept naked eye, but sometimes you can't see it with your naked eye, but can see with e.g. binoculars. This is where they differ: Seyyed Sistani says if you can't see it with naked eye then it doesn't count, Imam Khamenei says even if you can't see it with naked eye, but you can see it with optical aid like binoculars or a telescope it still counts.

    @Hadi5 All brothers tried to help you with your doubt but you don't seem to pay attention. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) helping someone is due to his wisdom. He was not helping caliphs but Islam. He was acting according to will of Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to not take sword. These caliphs who insulted Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), usurped the right of Imam Ali (عليه السلام), usurped baaghe fadak, attack the house of Janabe Zehra (sa), killed her and her unborn child, changed laws of Islam, etc.. their evil acts cannot be forgiven and they deserve eternal curse and punishment. Surah An-Nisa, Verse 93: وَمَن يَقْتُلْ مُؤْمِنًا مُّتَعَمِّدًا فَجَزَاؤُهُ جَهَنَّمُ خَالِدًا فِيهَا وَغَضِبَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَعَنَهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُ عَذَابًا عَظِيمًا And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell; he shall abide in it, and Allah will send His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement. (English - Shakir) Who is believer more than our immaculate Imams and Lady of light (peace be upon them all). And since you asked me about Tabarrah, check below link, read and understand. https://seratonline.com/?s=Tabarra

    The other complete verse of Quran as mentioned in OP is given below: فَمَن يُرِدِ اللَّهُ أَن يَهْدِيَهُ يَشْرَحْ صَدْرَهُ لِلْإِسْلَامِ ۖ وَمَن يُرِدْ أَن يُضِلَّهُ يَجْعَلْ صَدْرَهُ ضَيِّقًا حَرَجًا كَأَنَّمَا يَصَّعَّدُ فِي السَّمَاءِ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يَجْعَلُ اللَّهُ الرِّجْسَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ Therefore (for) whomsoever Allah intends that He would guide him aright, He expands his breast for Islam, and (for) whomsoever He intends that He should cause him to err, He makes his breast strait and narrow as though he were ascending upwards; thus does Allah lay uncleanness on those who do not believe. (6:125) The uncleanness is laid on those who do not believe. Thus non believers are uncleanliness ie Rijs. وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَن تُؤْمِنَ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَيَجْعَلُ الرِّجْسَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ And it is not for a soul to believe except by Allah's permission; and He casts uncleanness on those who will not understand. (10:100) Now look at the following verse: إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying. (33:33) As Rijs ie uncleanness is kept away from Ahl alabayt of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Thus making it clear that the believers are expanded their breast and lead towards pure Ahl alabayt as. of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). They (عليه السلام) are never separated from the verses of Quran according to the hadith thaqlyn. They are our leaders after the prophet towards the true path of islam. Then from Sura Al Anam (6) very next verse is quoted: وَهَٰذَا صِرَاطُ رَبِّكَ مُسْتَقِيمًا ۗ قَدْ فَصَّلْنَا الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَذَّكَّرُونَ And this is the path of your Lord, (a) right (path); indeed We have made the communications clear for a people who mind. (6:126) wasalam

    Is Religion Expanding Our Breasts?

    Salam it's just a Sufi viewpoint that we must leave anything & wait for judgment of Allah but we must have love & hate because of Allah & rest of sects don't have infallible live Imam so they just are trying to stick to this good word to justify their wrongdoing like Khawarij slogan that their slogan was " there is no rule except rule of Allah" that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) said that is a true word but you have wrong intention from saying it which now people like Suffis altered it to leaving everything to Allah judgment in hereafter anyway I don't this hatred between all followers of religion but I'm not neutral about their wrong doing for example wrong doing of some people in a part of world caused spread of Covid-19 but we can't be angry about a certain race for spreading disease but I'm angry about behavior that caused spread of disease around the world but many people are judgmental about them and call it "China virus" & anti shia wahabist called it "Shia virus" while other people among haters were responsible for spreading disease too but they called it a test for themselves & judgment of Allah on nonbelievers (Shias , chinese & etc).

    Shia Hadiths

    Quranist nonsense. We don’t believe in that. You can’t be a Muslim if you don’t accept the fact that the sunnah is derived from the Quran AND the ahadith and this is agreed upon by ALL; Sunnis, Shias, Ibadis. If you remove entire hadith literature, then there’s no Islamic history as well as majority of sharia law to rely on. The Holy Quran does not address many issues of everyday life. As for the authenticity of ahadith I can sure you that there are scholars who specialise in that field to which they dedicate years upon years of study by applying rigorous methods. Then they release books about it. You learn about hadith methodology in hawza, it’s nowhere near simple and easy as you and similar try to present.

    Shia Hadiths

    This is absolutely incorrect. It's a very common misconception, and it's resulted in so much confusion and deviation from the straight path. Qur'an and Hadiths, narrations from the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), are never separated and should never be seen as separate. Hadith al-Thaqalayn makes this point very clear. In addition, the fundamental pillar of our faith is Walaya. We can properly understand the meaning and nature of Walaya, when we study what the Awliya of Allah, the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), have said about it, comments and narrations that are not explicitly found in the Qur'an.

    1) Quran and Ahle Bayt hadith is CLEARLY mentioned in Sahih Sittah to have taken place at GHADEER KHUMM. As you admitted also it was the last sermon. The location is also a meeqat for Hajj northwest of Mecca. Considering the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) did Hajj only once in his life which was therefore his first and last hajj what else was he doing at this meeqat? Disingenuous are the ones that purposely don't put 2 and 2 together when all the clear facts are right in front of them. 2) Again the hadiths in Muslim are explicitly clear regarding the 12 caliphs "The Caliphate will remain among the Quraish even if only two persons are left (on the earth)" and "I joined the company of the Prophet (ﷺ) with my father and I heard him say: This Caliphate will not end until there have been twelve Caliphs among them. The narrator said: Then he (the Holy Prophet) said something that I could not follow. I said to my father: What did he say? He said: He has said: All of them will be from the Quraish." http://sunnah.com/muslim/33/4 http://sunnah.com/muslim/33/5 The wordings clearly imply the caliphate will remain with the 12, which means they are successive without break. Yes only 2 Imams physically ruled, that doesn't mean we don't consider the other 10, for us we consider all 12 caliphs and have followed them as such and the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)'s words declares them to be the rightful 12 and fits that narrative perfectly. What's the excuse of any layman sunni as per your words to explain the 12 in succession logic? Again disingenuous is the one clearly ignoring the words that imply that the 12 will be in succession. I believe you meant "WERE you really a sunni?" and "if you were". Unless you went to school with Ali G then it's understandable. Yes I was a sunni from a 100% moderate sunni family having been born and raised and schooled in Saudi Arabia where I received and grew up on wahabi ideology, so therefore a former wahabi at that. And I clearly went through numerous sunni hadiths such as bukhari and muslim (which are very readily available online for people like you to go through like the links I shared above as per your words, since clearly you and every sunni have either not read them and don't know these basic facts or are just being disingenuous)

    Salatul Eid at home?

    The solution is to pray individually in your own home. 'Remote' congregational prayer doesn't exist. Praying the eid prayers individually on the other hand was already possible before Covid so essentially there is nothing new in it. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) accept our prayers.

    What is wrong with you?

    It's not an easy topic, it requires quite some thought. Boycotts are a good place to start. Self awareness is also good (people show up to marches but not many take the time to study these conflicts and plights in detail. If you're armed with facts and figures then you can defend causes with more credibility). Documentaries/media will also help but it should be about quality rather than quantity. 2 or 3 well researched and well produced documentaries that everyone promotes will have more of an impact than a constant stream of half-info/semi-relevant videos.

    Don't live your life being stuck with the thought of what someone will do if they are without you. Life goes on for everyone, that's what life is, you are not that significant to matter. So better not waste your life.

    I remember when we were younger I used to wonder why mom said reading is a luxury. I think I have entered that phase in life now. I can not even watch a full documentary or movie (which used to be a luxury type hobby), and reading was one of the staple activities of my day. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) grant us barakah in our time, and make every moment of our lives dedicated to Him, and Him alone.

    I saw many people disagreed with my statement. I didn't say sunnis love us. I said they don't really care if we are shias or not more often. Also many people are "sunnis" just be name. Some don't even know anything about story of Islam and can't hardly name companions of the Prophet (saws). When I visited Africa for exemple most people didn't care at all I was Shia.
