  1. There is no consensus on that. Some people claim that Iran, US and Europe also contribute towards making all those countries into failure. But i guess, the article is about Saudi future vision and perhaps to keep the stoy short the contributor didnt going off on a tangantiel fact finding mission.
  2. It's not western influence that's driving these girls to reject joint family system. It's the rejection of hindu culture that treat daughter-in-law like a servent or someone that needs to brought over in. the first thing a man need to think about before marriage is find a place to live for his wife and children. His parents can visit them just like her parents can visit them.
  3. You say you like your husband. But he falls short of your expectation. the best is to openly and honestly talk with each other about habits that can potentially bothers each other and cause friction in the household.
  4. Absolutely. Thats how things should work in theory. But a lot of time, not everything works according to theory.
  5. I read FT sometimes, they dont reject contributors that have utterly positive view about the most negative event/person. for example when FT had an article about the largest corruption scandal in the world involving the Prime Mnister of Malaysia...almost the next week Malaysian ambassador from UK wrote how great the Malaysian economy s doing under th PM "leadership"
  6. Women dont like sharing house with their in-laws or with other women just like men dont like to live with their in-law. Your wife should have as much to say in where you both stay after marriage. Your parents shouldnt interfere and demand what will fit their lifestyle.
  7. Not me, i dont get embarrassed or shy talking about FGM or female circumcision. To me these are just matter of fact or factual stuff. But i maybe older than the average shiachat.
  8. The French are so silly sometimes. They need to change their thinkng style. This is very bad.
  9. There's nothing wrong with Indian girl or Iranian/Syrian men. If a genuine relationship has developed then it's possible for two people from different culture to get married despite all the hardship.
  10. Saudi and Kuwait is a real possibility. Iran and UAE has diversify their economy. Iraq, Yemen and Libya are sort of failed states so no suprise.
  11. Nope. I think in your case they were probably trying to find a way out of their own country. It's best not to entertain random marriage proposal. Also, some men and women like to flirt, so dont take it seriously.
  12. (Salam) A few things you may consider having in the marriage contract, for girl - right of pursuing education - freedom to work outside if desire - right to be in a monogamous marriage
  13. Are you insulting me? What a terrible question to ask someone.
  14. It's generally a bad idea to be someone second wife. You should be worth more to him than a part-time spouse. If he needs someone other than you, then you are not very important and why waste the one life you have with such man.
  15. Are Pakistani even allowed to disagree with anything islamic? Can you proclaim your hatred/dislike against Islam without being labeled a traitor or a kafir? My understandung is that unlike Iran and Turkey, Pakistan doesnt have freedom from religion for the Muslim. In Iran and Turkey, they will tolerate your non-confirmity.
  16. I think it has mainly to do with religion, politics and culture. Muslim countries are mostly inferior in providing good environment for knowlegable people to thrive. There's no political stability because islam doesnt have good political approach for governance. Islamic faith cannot structure the society and it doesnt emphasize enough on real important stuff to improve human condition. just to add: muslim countries are not alone in this. Hindus, Chinese are also bad at managing their countries.
  17. Yes, turkish people are not religious. In fact they are not even culturally muslim. However, islamic faith, the sunni version, is coming again in turkey, unfortunately. Even sadder, some Muslim hero-worship the turks because once upon a time, turks used to rule the muslim with their sham religiosity.
  18. Thanks for sharing. Slavery is indeed incompatible with the modern world. Even laborers that go to work in the middle east from poor countries like india, bangladesh, pakistan are extremelly exploited and their working condition are pure slavery.
  19. You should not waste your time thinkng about your dead ancestors. Good or bad, they are completly irrelevent to your current life.
  20. Even if you are not Shia, they are mass laying off people working in the oil or petroleum sector. The best thing happening from cheap oil is that the middle eastern countries/states no longer having huge amount of revenue to justify massive expats in state own industry.
  21. You are perfectly justified to feel the way you do. Many men take women for granted, especially Muslim men. They see women as housewife, mother, servent or a cheap labor (nanny, housekeeper, care taker for the in laws). to avoid being taken for granted, you should be educated, have a job and never give up your freedom to become his 'side-kick'. You should pursue your dream and interest. It's not impossible to find a man that can support you in life but its very hard.
  22. Superiority complex. People cant let go of their culture and values hence need to somehow rationalize that they are correct about their own worth and self -importance. This is not one sided. Even westerner think their culture, religion and way of life is superior. But they dont need to talk about it since they are free to live the life the way they want it here in the west.
  23. Children dont have religion. Their parents introduce them to the religion. Children could be fool to worship 1 or many god, Islam, Christianity or Hinduism.
  24. Magic doesnt exist, it's human imagination. Your mother has a mental and social behaviorly issues. Stop wasting your life believing something as silly as that. As for rat droppings, get a good rat poison and clean up your house. Nothing magical about that.
  25. Iran and Saudi Arabia seems to have a lot of atheists. I wonder if the environment that they are brought up causes them to reject the religion. i think 'Islamic' version of terrorism aka ISIS also made many people dissociate themselves from Islam. If a large number of people seems to be misguided by islamic literature and speakers/scholars then obviously there's something really wrong with Islam in their opinions.
