  1. Assalam u Alaikum I just checked and your IP is not blocked. Would appreciate if you can forward me your previous account name. Sometimes, using a different browser and clearing temporary files/cache help. Regards, Abbas
  2. Assalam u Alaikum Advanced members can edit their content up to 60 minutes after posting. Regards, Abbas
  3. Assalam u Alaikum There is a controversy surrounding this film. A senior member of Shiachat has shared his thought provoking views on his blog. I found his views to be balanced and well articulated. I encourage others to review the article and share their stance in a respectful manner. Please avoid posting content promoting the movie. This thread intends to raise the bar of intellectual honesty and truth seeking. As such, we expect that members will offer relevant comments with merit. ++++++ By Sayyid Ali @Ibn al-Hussain I’m sure by now many have seen the recent trailer for
  4. W.s I don't have much to say at the moment. There appears to be an ongoing debate on this matter. But I found the following which may add value to this discussion: "While the prohibition of wine is an agreed matter based on the explicit Koranic forbiddance, references to hashish, cannabis and other hemp derivatives are absent from the sacred text. This void opens up the possibility of interpretation among legal scholars with results that are not always unanimous, as this article discusses...The lack of Koranic reference stimulated the mind of religious scholars in interpreting t
  5. Self-discipline is a difficult journey but it offers cure to many of our problems. Use your intellect to plan your days, months and years. You will frequently fall. You will face new challenges. But keep fighting till your last breath.

  6. I personally think that "Partially agree" or "Disagree" serve as a good balance against the common reactions of "Like" and "Thanks". We shouldn't expect people to offer a compulsory response after they have reacted to our posts. The number of people agreeing, disagreeing or partially agreeing with our views provide a good measure of the wide spectrum of different opinions. Those reactions do not necessarily make an argument right or wrong. Members who are more active, vocal and interested in your post will of course contribute to the discussion for everyone's benefit.
  7. One of the reasons that I have become inactive on SC is because everytime I try to contribute to an interesting thread/post, I end up realising that I am unclear about the subject matter. So please keep sharing quality information. You give me an opportunity to learn...

      We are all students just like you brother.

  8. Despite their shortcomings, our scholars/jurists remain the appropriate authority on such matters. That being said, my personal view is as per below and I advise caution as it is not an expert opinion on religious or other grounds: Understanding Marriage As Muslim males, we are often brought up to believe that one of the primary purposes of a marriage is to cure our sexual desires. No doubt, a marriage restores balance to the hormones of a young individual. But the purpose and primary scheme of a marriage is to establish the institution of a family. And it matters not whether th
  9. Assalam u Alaikum Most scholars consider shaving haram. Their learned opinion is valuable in giving weight to this topic and their precautionary approach is understandable. However, I am less convinced with the sources (or wisdom) in support of beard being wajib or shaving being haram. You may refer to the following links for insight: https://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235048093-mandatory-to-grow-a-beard/?do=findComment&comment=3034037 https://www.al-islam.org/articles/islamic-perspective-beard-allamah-murtada-baghdadi
  10. W.S Regarding the specific details being shared, I personally treat such information as conjecture/speculation unless supported by Quran and/or other authentic sources of Islam. It is my understanding that our rewards in the hereafter are based on our level of knowledge, intentions, choices and efforts in this life. The suffering and the challenges of this life are personal experiences truly known either to the individual facing them or God Al-Mighty. On one hand, there are people who think that they have got it worse. On the other hand, we may be able to objectively weigh who is
  11. Assalam u Alaikum The points raised are reflective of hyperactive emotions and cultural values rather than proper inference from Islamic principles. God Almighty has bestowed aql (intelligence) to human beings. We have used it successfully over time to overcome many physical problems. The primary issue is whether the procedure in question contradicts Islam's primary principles and its vision of Akhlaq for our purification in this world. The burden of proof is on the people shouting out loud but not providing express or implied references from credible Islamic sources.
  12. You are always the voice of reason
