  1. السلام عليكم I would like to write to you what went on in my mind as I was investigating Islam and what led me to the Shia path. Im not sure if anyone is interested, but I like to write this down for me as well :) So: I was born to a fundamental christian family, and because of all the stories I heard about Islam, like Allah(swt) being a moongod and other things such as that, I decided to have an open mind and investigate it. I started reading the Quran and I was quickly convinced of its message, no problems so far, I didnt know Islam had sects as this point. My mind set was: Quran is true in what it says, I want to be a muslim. Then I kept on researching more, the Sunnah so to speak, the Hadeeths, and what i found was shocking. I found narrations for example that claim the Prophet(saw) was bewitched. Coming from a fundamentalist christian background, this was an instant turn off for me, how can the prophet of God be cursed by some mystic??? So, disappointed of this, I kind of stopped researching for a few months, then my interest re-ignited as I heard a salafi preacher i wont name for political reasons lol(dont wanna get banned) preach about the authentic teachings of Islam, and following the Salaf, well again I did my research and I found that the companions of the Prophet(saw) had MANY arguments with each other, to a point where they would KILL each other. Again... Another disappointment, i read about Aisha breastfeeding adult males... etc etc. I still keep searching, I decide to disregard all that, and I start learning the Salah, (memorizing what to say, memorizing few Surahs for my coming conversion), well now I encounter ANOTHER disappointment. The Madhabs, instant confusion, I start googling about them, I end up on forums where people are calling followers of the Maliki madhab names for praying with hands on the side, (Sadl) instead of folding the arms. The Hanafi said there is no need for Wali (guardian) in marriage, the shaafi said circumcision is fard, hanafi and maliki said its not.... just total confusion. The funny part was, ALL OF THEM are said to be correct, how can all be correct??? So: Again I stop searching and researching for a while and just decide eeh I'll let it be. Then one day I went to my youtube account, and the Suggestions section showed a Shii'te preacher whom I wont name either for again political reasons (dont know if its allowed in these forums). I watched the video, and my first contact to Shia Islam was established. And from then on, it was all happinesss and smiles. Alhamdulillah. The Imamah clicked with me instantly, because again coming from a christian background: Prophets and the successors are chosen by GOD, not voted for by a democratic assembly. I noticed the Hadeeths of the Ahlul-Bayt(as) did not contradict each other, Finally, i had found home, there is only the Quran and one Sunnah :) Abu Dharr al-Ghifari narrates the Prophet(saw) to have said: "The People of my Household are for you like the Ark of Nuh (Noah). Whoever embarks on it will be saved and whoever turns away from it will be drowned." At this point: I was convinced, I was ready to take my Shahadah and revert to the true Islam. :) - So thats it, how my mind was working during this time of searching, sorry if its repetetive and boring. but I decided to write it anyway. For all the people who are searching NOW, and may come accross this topic I encourage you to look at things from a critical and scientific point of view, and you will get to the same conclusion as me and many others have :) The issue here in the west is that Shia Islam is basically unheard of, so we must work hard to make Da'wah and bring hope to the people :) Peace :)
  2. How come this guy isnt banned yet? What an elitist. U need to calm down bro, and drink some coffee, that will perk you right up.
  3. Im not surprised by the least. I saw this coming a mile away. And the west is backing these kafir bafoons... of course they are. Wahhabis work together with USA and its allies. Nothing new. RIP to all people who died. Also im sorry for iran, being like a gem in a sea of mud, its amazing, Iran vs the world
  4. The 12 rulers part is interesting. DOes anyone think this COULD possibly maybe refer to the Imamah?
  5. I dont want to play the judge, but isnt this borderline kufr? How can you have Islam as your religion and mock Allah(swt) and question Him? Show some respect please. May Allaah guide you..... "For Allah leaves to stray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills."
  6. السلام عليكم This topic popped into my mind as I was reading about a similar issue on the internet. How will Islam look like in 2050? By estimates at the moment muslims will be 34% of the world's population. Now thats all fine and dandy, but what I wish to know and ask you guys is: What will the demographics of Islam itself be in 2050? Meaning; how many percentages will be Shia, how many sunni? Which one is growing faster? Will the Shia prevail by 2050 as a larger than 10-15% minority? even 20%? Or will we shrink in size to 5%? These are the questions im counting on you to give answers to :) -Let the answers flow :) I trust in you!
  7. I play Counter strike global offensive, team fortress 2 and league of legends :) All great games.
  8. It is Haraam. Question :What is the ruling on playing chess using the commonly known equipment? Is the ruling different if the play is conducted on a computer, using symbols? Answer :Playing chess is haraam mutlaqan (absolutely or under any circumstances), even though betting is not used. There is no difference between the two methods of play.

  9. HAhaha Just when you think they couldnt get any crazier, they come up with this. They had a similar story in 2011, in 2011 if women were allowed to drive there would be no virgins left, and all the guys would be homosexual, as evident in all other countries besides saudi arabia.. oh wait its not. :D That story was a tad too ridicilous even for the Wahhabi to withstand so they managed to pull off this ridicilous excuse that puts to shame most of the modern civilization with false scientific claims and absurdity.
  10. That video is full of lies. When muslim immigrants move to Europe, their fertility rate is lowered to pretty much the same level as the non muslims. Not only that: but the world is suffering from overpopulation, lack of drinking water, food, electricity needs increasing, oil supplies dwindling. etc etc etc. So overall the world has too high of a fertility rate, even if the population were to drop by 2 billion, it would actually be a good thing. All that aside: having too young of a population also brings its own challenges in regards to education and welfare.
  11. It is Sunnah.http://www.al-islam.org/nutshell/laws_practices/7.htm Also, praying in Sunni mosques with a Turbah hasnt caused me any issues, people look at me funny but thats pretty much it.
  12. Thanks a lot for the throughout response!! Very interest read i would definately appreciate some sources so i can read all kinds of Hadeth i have an issue with finding them in english.
  13. Excellent book! The Salafis have proven themselves to be unwilling to debate, so that in itself should tell something about their "movement" They tell their followers to not listen to the Shia, why? why is it so scary to hear something? Are they scared the people can find truth? *runs and hides* :D
  14. Horrible news :/ BUT: This is to be expected and this has been foretold, and this further proves what is what in the field of Islam and who is who :) PS. I hoped this topic was like a Sunni guy from Saudi arabia telling us he is OK with Shia Islam :/ BUT NO :S
