    97% of the Pakistani population is Sunni, is that right?
    Isn't that what the wahabbis claim, I'm pretty sure its less.

    *Sayyeda* got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in How Is Mehdi Hassan Allowed To Freely Expres On Tv   
    (salam)

    At 6:45 he only mentions the 'Shia minority was repressed by the Sunni elite eg by Saddam Hussain' and then mentions the role the U.S had. He doesn't say anything that is in the Shias favour as such and the fact that Saddam cracked down on Shias is something Sunnis and Shias are both aware of. It doesn't as far as I can see, conflict with the ethos of Al Jazeera to have a brief one sentence reminder of Saddam's reign. 
     
    At 11:17 he says 'Arab governments tried to back Israel at the beginning because Israel was taking on Shia Hezbollah but they had to switch their position because the Arab streets started naming all their kids Hassan Nasrallah and started holding we're with Hezbollah placards' to show the difference between the Arab people and the governments- I don't quite see how he's backing Hezbollah, supporting it or even mentioning it in a positive light. Rather he's just mentioned how the Arab people supported it whilst the governments didn't. 
     
    In regards to the Muslim Brotherhood, after everything that has happened, a lot of people are withdrawing their support of them publicly. Saudi Arabia declared them a terrorist organisation earlier this month. And Al Jazeera published an article on it http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2014/3/7/saudi-arabia-deemsmuslimbrotherhoodaterroristgroup.html.
     
    Al Jazeera is regarded as one of the most influential news channels worldwide- it even boasts at being endorsed by Hilary Clinton (Kind of tell you where it stands). It has however come under criticism for being biased and for restricting freedom of speech. Being regarded as biased in such a manner is detrimental for a news channel that is trying to reassure everyone they have no political or sectarian bias. Refraining from mentioning Hezbollah at all or by pretending the Shia's were not repressed by Saddam would simply add to that because those are facts rather than opinions. Al Jazeera is as far as I can see, playing a clever game in which it relies on people like Mehdi Hasan to give a semblance of justice and equality but when you actually look at what is being said, it's not in support of the Shias- anything that isn't negative is usually just factual information. 
     
    Even if a speaker said something that appeared to be giving the Shias a voice on this channel, it would be heavily censored and purely to give the impression that they are unbiased and therefore trick people to think their information is valid and a true representation. This makes indoctrinating the public easier.

    He's a political journalist and editor and not a shia activist which is probably the biggest reason why.
    He is also good for the ratings which is why Al Jazeera tolerate him and just how often does he really give the 'Shia' view on things? 
     
    A more important question is not why Al Jazeera would have him but why would he would have Al Jazeera, a Wahabbi funded Qatari news channel that is bias against Shias instead of helping advance Press TV.

    Unfortunately it has become common to call those with different beliefs to your own, kuffar regardless of whether they believe in the oneness of Allah (a.s) or not. If he does not commit shirk and is not a ghulat, what right does anybody to accuse him of being an unbeliever.

    religious speakers should stick to religion just as a scientist should stick to science. When someone wanders outside their field, they will speak about things they have no knowledge of. If an ayaltullah or any religious authority starts speaking scientific nonsense, it will be hard to follow them even in religious rulings because obviously the person did not use any logic when speaking about non-religious issues.

    Yes she is

    That reminds me a story:
    A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?"
    "Because I need to" she said.
    "I don't understand," he said.
    His mother just hugged him and said, "And you never will."
    Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"
    "All women cry for no reason," his dad answered carelessly.
    The little boy, still wondering why women cry, finally asked the old wise shaikh (scholar). "He surely knows the answer", he thought.
    "Ya Shaikh! Why do women cry so easily?"
    The Shaikh answered:
    "When Allah made the woman she had to be special. He made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort.
    He gave an inner strength to endure both childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.
    He gave her a toughness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
    He gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child hurts her badly.
    He gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart. He gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
    And lastly, He gave her a tear. This is hers and only hers exclusively to use whenever she needs it. She needs no reason, no explanation, its hers.
    You see my son, the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the beauty of her face, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."

    That's hardly the way it goes. Timing is important and a lot of young women do want to complete there studies, especially when they have already put time and effort into their education. Whilst the OP seems to be very supportive and InshAllah was sincere in his desires to help her, a lot of the time support from the husband and family is offered but then retracted after marriage when the girl ultimately has to deal with it unless she wants to seperate with her husband. Moreover he promised her 0% problems but realistically noone can do that.
    As for the original question about marrying young, we have hadith that recommend it, so once you are ready you shouldnt delay it if you can. But the hadith telling us seeking knowledge is wajib should not be ignored either.

    You really do just argue for the sake of it. You lose your child and you can 'choose' to be happy? SubhanAllah, think about what you are writing!
     
    I don't know about you, but many people cry involuntarily when they are sad, grieving, or depressed. They don't 'choose' to do so. Of course, others can force themselves to cry, like actors for example.
     
    As for what the Qur'an says, the point isn't what 'white with grief' means, it's the end of the verse that mentions that he was suppressing sorrow. What do you think that was about? This sounds something like conversion disorder:
     
    A conversion disorder causes patients to suffer from neurological symptoms, such as numbness, blindness, paralysis, or fits without a definable organic cause. It is thought that symptoms arise in response to stressful situations affecting a patient's mental health.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversion_disorder
     
     
    In other words, it is much more likely that it was the trauma and stress of the situation that caused the blindness, than simply crying a lot.
     
    Perhaps not, but there is something wrong with making them sacred, and a part of the religion.

    (salam)
    Usually women and men only find out after trying and failing to conceive that they are unable to conceive naturally. However there are numerous conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and disorders of gonadal function ie amenorrhoea which are associated with infertility in women and can be diagnosed prior to marriage. Symptoms such as lack of menstruation, excessive hair growth, insulin resistance and acute pain can indicate these conditions prompting further testing and a diagnosis. Sometimes infertility does not occur in all cases of a condition but rather occurs in a certain number of cases, an example is how around half of females with endometriosis will be infertile. Some genetic conditions completely render the person barren and no treatment is yet avaliable whilst other conditions make it harder for a women to conceive and sustain a pregnancy. Those with the latter conditions are recommended to keep trying to conceive and may never conceive or may conceive numerous times after many years of trying.
