  1. Thank you, I was able to get it working in another browser. As an FYI, the email subscription box does not appear in the Chrome browser.
  2. Salaam, The link only tells you to subscribe, but does not give instructions or a link on how to subscribe, or how to download the activity book.
  3. Salaam, Check out my latest article http://www.commdiginews.com/world-news/analysis-indicates-shia-populations-are-being-underreported-50702/ WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2015 – New analysis indicates that the worldwide population of Shia Muslims may be underreported to the tune of more than one hundred million individuals.

There are a
  4. Its unfortunate you accuse others of slander when you post links to articles written in pure "conspiracy theory" format by individuals who hide behind pen names.
  5. The CIA has not ever, and will never recruit at UMAA. I've attended every single convention and have never seen any CIA presence there. I have never met anyone who was openly from the CIA. Many years of the convention are free for viewing on YouTube here https://www.youtube.com/user/umaamerica You can plainly see that we do not recruit any person for employment in any government agency, and even have a presentation from Muslim Advocates on how to protect yourself from the FBI and other law enforcement groups. We clearly, regularly, and openly only advocate for Shia Islam and the protection
  6. I was not present regarding the wolfowitz speech and there is no video of the event. The White House did not supply any video or transcript of the meeting, however, UMAA's remarks are summarized in the very first post of this thread.
  7. UMAA regrets the speech of Wolfowitz and since that time the administration and philosophy of the organization has changed. While we do believe it is fully important to engage in discourse with political officials, it must be done under the rubric of advancing the cause of the Prophet and his Ahlul Bayt and the situation of Shias in the US and around the world. UMAA looks forward to constructive dialogue, but is not a forum for any other group or government to advance its own agenda. The meeting with the President, as well as dozens of other meetings with not only government agencies, but also
  8. Prophet Nuh talked to tyrants of his time Prophet Ibrahim reasoned with Namrut Prophet Yusuf literally worked for a Pharoah Prophet Musa negotiated with a Pharoah Prophet Muhammad negotiated with Abu Sufyan, Quraish, others. Allowed Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and others in his presence. Imam Ali negotiated with Muawiya Imam Hasan signed treaty with Muawiya. Imam Husain negotiated with Shimr and others at Karbala Imam Muhammad Baqir and Imam Jafer Sadiq regularly negotiated with caliphs Every Prophet and every masoomeen in every circumstance always asked for their rights, even from people who would
  9. So Imam Ali and Imam Hasan never negotiated with Muawiya?
  10. if the "what" was fine and acceptable, what is the problem with asking?
  11. wayfarer - when you come to the convention, please let the 'registration' desk know you'd like to speak to Rahat. I'll introduce you to some folks. Just as an fyi, I'm not from Dearborn myself, I'm a Marylander.
  12. Salaam, I'm looking to speak with any Malaysian (originating from there, or currently living there - either way) Shias. If possible, I would like to ask some questions. I can do so by email phone or skype. please let me know if you can help. thanks, rahat
  13. http://www.commdiginews.com/world-news/malaysia-accused-of-shocking-human-rights-violations-abuses-against-shiite-minority-13908/ Malaysia has a serious human rights problem, according to Human Rights Watch (HRW), which released a 100+ page report entitled “No Answers, No Apologies” detailing abuses by Malaysian authorities. The report comes on the heels of accounts that Malaysia arrested infants from the country’s minority Shiite Muslim sect, based upon the “crime” of engaging in Shiite religious practices.
