  1. Interesting read. Not sure if there were any Shia NAK fans, but I am not one anymore. Title should say "inappropriate relationships with females" but I didn't have enough space.
  2. This whole area seems like a [Edited Out] show. I can't believe all of these dudes are ganging up and disrespecting this old man. It's ridiculous. What happened to the akhlaq of our ummah?
  3. This debate is truly hilarious. Br. Hijab is an experienced debater who should know (and have some respect) while debating others. I think that Br. Hijab gets angry too easily and starts interrupting/smirking/laughing to try and get respect from his own audience. It's very sad to see this -- I wish the Sunni community had a much more well-respected figure to debate with than this joke.
  4. It has been a long morning for all of the scholars. One thing I would like to note is that it is Eid for some areas in the United States (southern countries) today Sunday the 25th, for Syed Sistani.
  5. This is unfortunate. My mosque just declared today is Eid for us here locally. We are in South Texas. May Allah guide us.
  6. http://www.aimislam.com/eid-al-fitr-announcement-2017/ surrogate is like a second office
  7. Surrogates for Imam Khamanaei declare today Eid for North and South America.
  8. Bismillah, There are new updated reports that the moon was sighted during the sunset in California. According to Sayed Sistani's methodology (May Allah lengthen his life) for declaring eid, it has been declared eid for certain shared horizons today, Sunday the 25th. See I.M.A.M.'s statement here: https://www.imam-us.org/crescent-moon-month-shawwal-1438-2/ There are also updates on AIM's website, a surrogate for Khamanaei marja3. http://www.aimislam.com/eid-al-fitr-announcement-2017/ May Allah guide us.
  9. Multiple people on the North American Hilal committe reported that they could not sight the moon. This is coming from various states in the U.S. This is from the Shi'a I.M.A.M. organization. Other reports from moonsighting.com show that two reports explain that you cannot see the moon with the naked eye. Another report shows that you can only see it with an optical aid. I think it comes down to whether your marja'3 allows for optical aid or not. If all else fails, follow your local masjid. Mine has declared that Monday is Eid. May Allah guide us.

  11. I'm sick of the statements that say we Shia always use Taqiyya. This is widely thought out by Sunni Muslims more than westerners, which is hilarious.
  12. I've always wanted to try a DNA test. It would be very interesting to see family ethnicity on paper, and learn more about your family.
  13. This website is completely uneducated on the religion of Islam. No disrespect to the NOI, but they should've just put Islam instead of NOI. Now people are going to be googling what the NOI is and be super confused.
  14. Clash Royale is a really good game, based off of the Clash of Clans game but better.
  15. Ahh you should join back if you have some time. They have a bunch of nice updates. I just rejoined after a 6 month break.
  16. You still play it? They remade the 2007 version and they have a bunch of new updates.
  17. I suppose I should have used "shouldn't" instead of "can't", to reflect my own personal opinion. Polygamy in Islam is always going to be based off of whether the marriage between all of these wives are just or not. All of the women have to be treated equal in terms of justice and fairness. Sayed Muhammad Rizvi elaborates on this and says that the husband should be financially responsible and be able to maintain finances with more than one wife. In my opinion, it would only seem fair and equal to have each spouse know that the husband is undergoing several marriages. Because of this, if one marriage had one thing available for one wife, then he must do the same for the next, according to Sayed Mustafa Qazwini. In my understanding, there would be no other way to have multiple marriages without letting your spouses know that you have multiple wives. If you dedicate time to one wife, you must do the same to the other(s). Regardless, consent of the first wife to marry multiple wives is a law in many countries where polygamy is still allowed, and the law of the land is something that must be followed. https://www.al-islam.org/articles/concept-polygamy-and-prophets-marriages-sayyid-muhammad-rizvi https://www.al-islam.org/a-new-perspective-women-islam-fatma-saleh-moustafa-al-qazwini/chapter-8-polygamy
