  1. That would depend on what he thinks our spiritual, moral and ethical needs are.
  2. Life must go on, brother. And no one needs to tell us to continue with our day to day affairs. One would think there must be far more important things that the Imam would need to tell us. Noble thoughts, brother. They have the same overall objectives but they have their own individual instructions from Allah to carry out.
  3. Well, would you be good enough to explain? And f you can throw some light on it, I would also like to know where this concept originates from.
  4. On one occasion, he gave me six or seven DISAGREE stamps in quick succession. And that dark red colour so hurts my eyes, that from that day on, when I see him, I just run somewhere else. I agree that it would be better to give reasons for the disagreement rather than use that button. I am sure Mr. hasanhh is a very nice man but he doesn't realise that that is what killjoys love to do.
  5. You did not answer my question. My question was "Is every bidat wrong in the eyes of God?" And I would like to add "If so, why?"
  6. The big question is ------- Is every bidat wrong in the eyes of God? What about using the laptop and the mobile? What about travelling by car, train or plane? All bidat?
  7. Thank you, brother. Important topics should always be in one place. That is what I also do on my laptop. In the Directories folder, I store my files in separate sub-folders, so that I can find them easily when I need them.
  8. It would be nice if all threads relating to End-Day discussions and our present Imam (عليه السلام) were in one folder. That would make relevant discussions much easier.
  9. Brother, I am glad you added Insha'Allah. I think we need t some independent judges to examine the overall productivity and usefulness of our site before we can be sure that our Imam is proud of us. I think it is equally possible that he is not.
  10. Even if he does not have access to the Internet, he knows EXACTLY what everyone is doing - whether he is a follower, a sceptic or an outright enemy. He knows all that is to know about political leaders - the Trumps, the Trudeaus, the Boris Johnsons, the Macrons, the Modis and the others. He also knows everything about ordinary people - the hawkers, the vendors, the janitors, the bus drivers, the thieves, the robbers, and all the rest. He does not need the Internet for his information. Hid information comes directly from God. As for this site, he might think that Shiachat is performing a good service or he might think that it could do better. He may have reservations about how it is managed, about the manners of its members and how effectively we are serving Islam, individually and collectively. The time will come when we will find out what he thinks. Let us pray it does soon.
  11. First class flights and 5-star hotels ? That may be your experience but I have never heard anything of the sort. My experience is very much to the contrary. I know some scholars in India who often leave it to the host to decide what he is worth. Most speakers I have known have had very meagre demands, if any.
  12. The union of speakers will probably never eventuate. And it is rather difficult to introduce standard rates because every speaker is in a bracket by himself. I listen to Urdu speakers far more often than I do to English speakers such as Nakhshwani. And I can tell you that not only are they ALL different but also, in the case of some, different people in the audience can have somewhat different impressions of a given speaker. I will not give examples as that could mean going into personal opinions. But in short, standardisation of rates, though a good idea, is, in practice, very difficult.
  13. Your sentence is not complete. Self-righteous what? Some may be. But we should not generalise and judge them. We should leave the judgement to God.
  14. It is valued because it is one of the greatest sacrifices one can offer for any given cause. Slogan mongering is meaningless but martyrdom, of itself, is an admirable achievement, if it is for a good cause.
