    Salam, I do think that a lot of women out there can be oblivious when it comes to the behaviour of men. I think women need to be educated to understand the psychology of men and how their brain functions. The things I am going to say may also relate to women, but in my opinion, this is something which refers to men a bit more. I may even sound harsh at times, but trust me, I am trying to be honest. Also, I'm not saying this is always the case as there's always exceptions. Firstly, being excessively charming, sweet, nice to men, be it in real life or over the text, puts you in a vulnerable position. I do not deny the fact that you may have pure intentions, but sometimes being overly nice allows men to develop certain feeling towards you, even if it may be extremely subtle. It’s an entirely different story if you are interested in a specific guy and want to show a bit of your care and affection towards them, obviously within boundaries. However, being excessively nice to every John, Bob and Harry, is not the best way to carry yourself. It’s okay to be blunt at times. Let men out there know that you’re not easy. Secondly, there is a social experiment conducted which you can find on Youtube – ‘Guys and Girls Can’t Be Friends’. Even according to psychology, it is not possible for those who are non-mahram to each other to be ‘friends’. Women can sometimes be oblivious when it comes to this reality. Be careful when a brother is playing around with you. You have no idea how the brain of a man works. There may be exceptions due to age barrier etc. but the majority of guys out there will develop some feelings towards you and an emotional attachment. I wouldn't call this lust, but it could be an excessive admiration, love or even attraction. Even if your friendship is dead-ended, and a guy knows there is no potential for halal growth, he may be carelessly taking short-term temporary pleasure by talking to you the way he would speak with his mates. It's just a heads up for every sister out there. What are your thoughts?

    Today this middle aged women (early thirties) was crying in the bus. I walked in the bus and sat at the back, and she was sitting two rows in front of me. Not a single person bothered to console her. People were casually on their phones as if their world was more important than hers. I approached her and asked her why she's upset and crying, turns out her niece was in a critical state. It was honestly so sad when I asked her, as her mouth was shaking and she was crying. But simply asking her that one question "is everything okay?" gave her so much comfort, I could sense it. Eventually she got off after a few stops and waved at me. Just a short message which I hope we all take from this. Don't be so isolated from the world, and always be in your own head. Talk to people, smile, be it even with strangers. You never know how you'll make someone's day.

    Block her from all of your social media. Do not message her for any reason. Let yourself hurt. Do something small everyday to help yourself feel better (doing something nice for someone, helping your mother, take some alone time, etc), try to keep your thoughts positive. Pick up a hobby, see different friends, spend time with family, go to the mosque. Therapy may be a good choice to try to let everything out with someone who is qualified. The most important thing to remember is that the pain will go away. At first it comes in waves and it feels like you’re drowning but one day it feels a little less weighty and you feel like you can breathe better. Eventually it won’t be something that will hurt but a distant memory. Take this as a lesson. Think about what happened and what you can learn from it. Don’t forget to rely on Allah and his boundless love and mercy. Take care of yourself, no one else can as well as you.

    Being Muslim and Gay

    Let's say a corrupt sheikh went ahead and married two people of the same sex, it would still be invalid in the eyes of God. Even if the whole world 7 billion people all agreed with same sex marriage, in God's laws it is INVALID. God hasten the appearance of Imam Mahdi. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

    Polygamy

    The problem with men getting second wives is that usually haram is committed prior, with the second wife before marrying, and it’s kept in secret. I don’t think Muslim men would do multiple wives justice. They wouldn’t treat their wives all fairly with as much affection and care as the other. The only group who only seem to treat their wives well are Mormon Fundamentalists. Nothing is kept secret between them. And they seem surprisingly accepting and happy.

    Polygamy

    I think in our times, especially in the west, marrying a second wife would be problematic. If you can get the first wife's permission, then go for it. But if the first wife doesn't give you permission, although you can still marry a second wife, obviously there is a high chance that the first marriage will end in shambles.

    If a Shi'a runs for office in the U.S.

    There were companions of Imams (عليه السلام) who worked for the tyrannical Ummayad rulers after being instructed by the Imam (عليه السلام) to do so. Nothing wrong being in the system to fight the system, or using your authority to protect Shia Islam and it's followers.

    How do you get over loving someone?

    Salaam, This will be a long read so get ready. All started in early 2018 before my GCSEs. One of my cousins messages me (let's give her a fake name eh Amina at the time she is 18/19 this year and I'm 15/16). We start to message a bit here and there, the 2 years ago (2016) I actually visited her in a holiday to Pakistan. Anyway as the weeks went by you can guess what happened I started to kind of like her. Then the GCSEs rolled around and I did quite well in them and I turned 16 on the results day and at this point I still haven't confessed anything to anyone (just briefly mentioned it to my Mom and Sister). Now let's skip to just after the summer holidays (September time) during that entire year messaging was on and off and by now I really really like her. It was around this time I also found out that I would be going to Pakistan and staying at her house for a wedding (December time) , but the weird thing is from this point to December there was little/no contact with her. But eventually the Christmas holidays came round and I got to Pakistan, at the airport Amina and her family were there, the moment I laid eyes on Amina, I knew I had fallen in love. But I never told anyone and kept it quiet for the whole trip. During the stay I made sure that I spent as much time with her as possible without actually doing anything or giving anything away. You see the only time I would spend with her is at restaurants (I would always insist that we took the WHOLE family along just so she would come too) (with the whole family) or sitting in the house (again with the whole family) in the whole trip I must've exchanged a few sentences here and there, there was one time when she bought me tea though. I must've drank 200 cups while I was down there just for an excuse of going to the kitchen which was next to her bedroom) midly creepy? I know). Anyway wedding happened we came home and that. Then I realised that this cannot go on forever and I must speak to my Mom now that I'm actually in love with her... So I spoke to my Mom and she said to basically work my way into getting an answer. If Amina would be interested in marriage or whether she wouldn't be interested in marriage with me. The fateful day came I remember the exact message she sent she said "I'm not feeling comfortable and I'm not interested in love". I cannot even begin to describe the physical and emotional pain I went through. Her messages were sent at midday on the 27/01/19 and I cried from that time until I went to sleep and if humans could cry in their sleep I would be crying during my sleep too. Physically I felt sick I could not stop the tears and I had an immense headache, my eyes hurt and just felt like dying. The next day the said sorry and I cried uncontrollably for an hour, I never meant for her to feel sorry. I remember that day I had an exam but I took the day off, she got angry about that.... But then she discussed the situation with me and I wrote an entire essay about why I love her, she then said "I will give u one chance." I was overjoyed understandably. Then we talked boy to girl for sometime. I learned she was very interested in studying and education and she would only be interested in love after that which which would be about 5 years from now... And she just wanted to speak normal, I told her that this was sad to hear and she became sad then too, she said "This love creates disturbance in your studies." It was hard to hear this but she said that she promises to think about love after she completes all her studies. But then I failed some exams and had to shut everything down to try harder in college, we even said our goodbyes.... After the next set of exams finished I messaged her again but the conversation was dead she wasn't saying anything her only response was "Hm" (which is very common amongst Pakistanis in messaging apparently). I told her I need to ask some serious questions now and she breaks her promise about thinking about love after her studying, at this point I was surely contemplating suicide, I told her I wanted to die. On that night I went to the window to kill myself but I was saved. I asked her if I should wait for her after her studying or forget about her forever she said "Plz leave me, Plz" That was it. Her final words? "Allah Hafiz". That was 71 days ago today and the pain has not since ceased. It is simply unexplainable unless you have been through the same thing (God FORBID THAT ANYONE GO THROUGH THIS). I was hoping things would've settled down by now but they haven't. Now even my Mom and Sister (who went through something similar) cannot relate and are tired of my sadness and my occasional outbursts of depression. I want to move on but I can't. How do you stop loving someone who you loved so much? Ali~Jay

    Kids like that are always "Shi'a friendly but still Sunni", meaning they don't harbor any ill will towards Shi'a and their beliefs, but they are Sunni. They will show up on Shab e Ashoor or on the evening of Ashura as a token gesture but its only on a cermonial basis because of their Father. Biggest problem is that the children of those children always marry Sunni and go Sunni full on. They will speak of how one of their grandparents or great grandparents where Shi'a maybe back in the day, but they won't remember them outside of anything other than a novelty item in the past. To marry a Sunni girl is the same as letting your children become Sunni, from there on out with no regard for the Ahle Bayt (عليه السلام). Its a disaster. There's a reason why Sistani speaks against allowing a Shi'a girl to marry a Sunni man. Personally, I think he should say the same about a Shi'a man marrying a Sunni girl as well.

    Marjas are Fallible

    I don't think any of our maraja claim to be infallible in the first place. It's very rational that they are in a better position than us to derive rulings because they spent all their lives studying the traditions of our Imams (عليه السلام). There is a chance that one of their rulings may be incorrect (even if the chance is 1%), but it gives us no right to arrogantly reject the laws. On the day of judgement we will be held accountable because we had no knowledge of the rulings yet we were willing to reject them. That's the reason why taqleed is wajib on us, we can''t create our own rules. Yes, everything in our books of fiqh isn't 100% correct but it is our duty to follow the rules as a precaution, and anyone with some rationality will agree. Our maraja say- "According to the research I have done, these are the rulings and here are the proofs etc.". No one claims to be infallible.

    How do you get over loving someone?

    You need to see a therapist ASAP. If you don’t want to see one face to face, you can find some online, free and anonymous therapy. Talking to a professional will help you delve into the deeper issues and understand why you feel the way you do. Since you're in the United Kingdom, theres two pretty good counselling sites; Childline and Kooth. Try them out. Alternatively, if you're comfortable, you could go to your GP and see what they recommend. You also need to start looking at the bigger picture. You're still very young. You're going to meet so many more people, some of whom will break your heart and upset you, while some will make you feel better. Time will help you forget to think about the pain, and when yorue older you'll think about just how insignificant this is in the wider scope of things. Tc

    You can say that to the 20+ scholars that declared insulting the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to be halal and in fact mustahab. ______ The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “When you will find people of bid`ah (innovation) and doubt/suspicion after me, do baraa’ (disassociation) from them and increase in your insults (sabihim) to them, and oppose (them) and bring evidences against them so they may not become greedy in bringing fasaad (corruption) to Islam. You must warn people against them and do not learn their bid`ah (innovation). Allah will write for you hasanaat (good deeds) for this, and will raise you darajaat (levels) in the next life.’” Source: 1. Al-Kulayni, Al-Kaafi, vol. 2, ch. 159, pg. 375, hadeeth # 4 Grading: 1.

    If Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) curses His enemies, and if the Prophets (عليهم السلام) did and if the Imams (عليهم السلام) also did - and it was confirmed by them to be a mustahab act, then how can it not be a spiritual act to get closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)?

    I feel like many men will precieve that the woman he’s friends with, likes him because because she’s nice. Some women are just nice with everyone and it doesn’t mean anything. Seriously, I have always minded my own business and kept men at arm’s-length, but that didn’t stop some men from becoming attracted to me. I used to feel really insecure about it and didn’t want any man to find me attractive, because I internalized the shame associated with it. It’s not a woman’s fault if a man falls for a woman’s personality—no man can expect a woman to stop being herself or stop being nice just because guys get attracted. I don’t wear revealing clothing, don’t show off my figure—I’m just myself. The only difference now is that guys notice the ring on my finger and they know that there are boundaries to not cross.

    Nah I believe in the concept of having a soul-mate or the 'one'. Imagine if it was the other way around. If I really liked a woman and thought of her as the 'one', I would rather die than see her with another guy. Therefore, I will never ever marry a second wife. I'd rather give everything to my first.

    Salam, all the brothers and sisters already have replied more than correctly on this subject. We are immune to anti-Islamic propaganda because we had and still have over 1300 years to deal with it. Our scholars of the past and present have written countless SCHOLARLY books refuting propaganda thrown at us, as well as the arguments for the alleged validity of points brought up by the People of Ignorance. I will just address few of the two points; First of all, Iran formally invited Saudi ulama countless times to a theological debate in Arabia, Iran or on the neutral grounds. The invitations were never accepted. Secondly, the Sunni (including Wahhabis/Salafis) rulers of Sunni majority countries fanatically and blindly reject the Islamic Revolution not only from the sectarian point of view, after all it was a Shia majority country that overthrew it’s long time, Western supported puppet, and not the Sunnis, but because the Islamic Revolution from the onset calls for the overthrow of the tyrannical regimes that spend the Ummah’s wealth on worldly desires instead of Islam. The Sunni “kings” and dictators fear losing ultimate powers to the rule of a true Islamic system. Holy Qur'an non-stop calls for justice and “deen over dunya”, something that the rulers of Sunni majority countries reversed. Thirdly, the video (I’m not going to waste my time on another primitive propaganda) supposedly mentions Syria allegedly changing the demographics. How is it possible when Sunnis make up 75-80% of the citizens and tens of thousands of them died and still die fighting for Assad and their secular state, is known only to the propaganda creators. Before the 20 century, there were virtually no borders among the Arab states and everybody moved from place to place. The concept of Arab borders and nationalisms are both children of the Europeans and then secular, non-Muslim pan-Arabists. Something that the Wahhabis allegedly reject, whenever it suits their needs of course. At the end I would like to remind my “dear” anti-Shia propagandists that the Shia demographics is actively being changed since over 1300 years; Rida wars, then Umayyads, Abbasids, other dynasties engaging in genocide, all the way to modern Bahrain, “Saudi” Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq. The Shia grow is not only hampered by the physical violences, killings and tortures by state and non-state actors, but also by forced migrations, forced conversions, enforced lack of possibilities (lack of access to qualified healthcare, education, positions of power such as teachers, professors, military men etc.), constant psychological abuse such as widespread propaganda and stereotypes. I’ll give few first hand examples from Iraq. Basically from the beginnings till 2003, the country was ruled by the Sunnis despite having a Shia majority. Saddam alone is responsible for the killings of over 400,000 (not included Iraq-Iran war and the invasion of Kuwait) Shia Iraqis; women, children and men. Add to it people who survived tortures and mistreatments and inherited physical and psychological problems that will be passed down for generations to come, putting enormous strain on the families and the healthcare system. Let’s not forget also about hundreds of thousands of Shia Iraqis forcibly expelled to Iran, on the alleged accusations of being “Iranians”. Almost quarter of a century of changing Shi’ite demographics just from one country. Let’s not be munafiqun about realities.

    Firstly, the video in question it's only a video its not a video that requires an scholastic response. Also from a Shia point of view we are immune from these kinds of Anti- Shia propagandist, because is nothing new hence it does not require a rebuttal. for centuries Shias have defended their faith from anti- Shia Sunni propagandist, and have dealt with everything the enemies of the Shias have thrown at us. Al hamdallah over the centuries the Sunni propagandist have continually failed in their propaganda. Example: Taufa Ithna Ashari (Urdu: تحفة اثنا عشرية‎) (Gift of Twelvers) is a highly controversial book[1] by Sunni Islamic scholar Shah Abdul Aziz This book by Shah Abdul Aziz Sunni scholar was if not the best book written against the Shia faith, however it was dealt with comprehensively by our Ullamahs. The point is you are astounded by this trivial video clip, yet you are utter novice when your own great scholars have failed.

    So, you think a Hindu or a Christian Trinitarian walking down the road is Najis al-Ayn? How do you live in this world? If you call this Shiaism then Shiaism is wrong and I denounce it. It would be a disgrace to be called a Shia if this is truly what Shiaism is. One should have enough dignity as human being by not allowing himself to be be even associated with a Shia if this is truly what Shaism teaches. Utterly disgusting. Sounds like ISIS dogma. Sounds like demonic teachings to me. In fact you want to k ow what really is najis? This teaching is najis. I don’t believe this is what real Shiaism teaches, I don’t believe a Shia of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) would have such a ridiculous idea.

    Alaikas Salaam brother, There are many people in this world who are born in Sunni family but they convert to shi'ism after finding the true path. You can totally change your sect. It's obvious that your family might not like the idea of you accepting the Shia Mazhab but if you follow Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), His Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and his progeny (عليهم اسلام) then your parents disliking it should not matter. You can be Shia and keep it secret from them. The only thing that distinguishes people is their Aqaed (beliefs). For becoming Shia, you have to believe in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), His Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and 12 Aimma (عليهم اسلام) after him as appointed by Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), and their teachings of Usool-e-deen and Furoo-e-deen. Feel free to ask if you have any queries.

    سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمُ ادْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ "Peace be upon you. Enter Paradise for what you used to do."[16:32] May Allah bless you .. and congratulation my brother there some differences with Sunni and Shia in beliefs and Fighh/jurisprudence. the first step is to know Imam Ali (علیه السلام) as a leader and immediate successor of Prophet That has been chosen by Allah not people the scened step is to know Allah and his attribute with Shia teachings the final step is to act according to the Shia Fighh. the major difference is on beliefs and there is some small difference in Fighh

    Immigration to Iran??

    This ^^ and it might increase tourism too. Hardly anyone visits Iran except for Ziyarahs despite the country having such a rich culture and history. If Shia people from other countries are living there, it would bring visitors others than zaairs, who will spend money. I know it would be very small, totally insignificant but my point is, Shia foreigners settling there won't be a burden on the country in anyway. But I feel IRI isn't not very open to visitors.

    Immigration to Iran??

    Why is it assumed the non iranians moving there will be seeking help, support or some other form of "giving" from the Iranian government? Perhaps it is an investor with a significant pool of resources who would like to settle and set up shop in Iran.

    Abu Bakr Umar and Uthman

    Al-Kāfī, volume 8, page 125: Imam Mūsá al-Kādhim said, when he was asked about them: “They're disbelievers: upon them is the curse of God, the angels and the people, altogether. By God, belief hadn't went into their hearts, they were deceivers, doubtful and hypocrites, until the angels of punishment took them to the place of humiliation.”

    Polygamy

    Salam, I would like to only kindly remind all of you here that we always approach every subject from the Islamic perspective, not our own. First of all, save for the infallibles (Prophets, Imams), barely anyone from the non-infallible men had/has more than one wife. How many of our ulama do? How many of the great marjaʿ? Ayatollahs al-Khoei, Khomeini, Sistani, Khamenei, the Shirazi family, and others - may Allah be pleased with them all, nearly uniformly each had/have one wife. Besides, the verse on polygamy has to be understood within the context it was revealed. The tafsir is clear that it was revealed at the time when constant warfare and diseases took toll among the early Muslim community, and in order for women not to turn to formication, like in pagan times, and for widowed and not children to have full rights as per sharia law, unlike in pagan times, the surviving men were allowed to marry more than one wife. It was to prevent injustice in the society, not for the pleasure of men who just felt bored with their wife... The Qur'an is very clear on the matter; one has to provide financially AND emotionally equally for all the wives, and if he can’t do so, then he shouldn’t even think about more than one in this time and age. Nonetheless, do you brothers pray daily always on time? Perfectly conduct yourself in public and private sphere? Do you have Islamic knowledge on our theology? Is your current wife pleased with your everyday behaviour? Let’s start with that before thinking about more than one wife. Allahu Alam.

    Abu Bakr Umar and Uthman

    It’s a “controversial” subject nowadays. However, considering the actions of these three men, one can easily deduct from that alone our stance on them. It has nothing to do with “politics”, as the other people would make you believe, but with the rights of succession to the Prophet. That’s not a “political” issue when the Prophet’s own son in law and cousin, as well as his only daughter, both suffered enormously after his death at the hands of the men you mentioned. One of them was such an unjust ruler, to the point that he was even killed by other sahaba for corruption and nepotism under his usurpation. I think this is the nicest way to put it. Persecuting Prophet’s family and their descendants, isn’t a “political” matter.

    Seriously Mohammed Hijab?!?

    Not really. the whole wahabi world, Israel and the west wanted to crush Syria, Iraq , Lebanon and Iran, and they lost. The truth is not decided by numbers anyway. They can hit their head all day long, it wont change anything.
