    Gypsy got a reaction from shia farm girl in what race/ethnicity were adam and eve?   
    Once a Jewish Rabbi from Khyber came to the Holy Prophet and asked him about Earth before Adam and Eve.

    He asked "Who was on Earth before Adam and Eve"

    Holy Prophet said "Before Adam and Eve, Earth was populated by Races of Jinn for 6000 years"

    Then the Rabbi asked him again "Who was on Earth before Jinn?"

    Holy Prophet(pbuh&hf) said "Before Jinn, Earth was populated by Angels(malaika) for 7000 years"

    The Rabbi asked again” Who was on Earth before Angels(malaika)?"

    The Holy Prophet(pbuh&hf) said "Before angels, Earth was populated by Adams and Eves for 2 million years"

    The Muslim name of the Rabbi was Abdullah Salam

    Actually our Parents Adam and Eve from the holy Quran is not as old as the remain of skeletons founded by archeologist.

    Including wives of the Prophet(saw) in the ahlul bayt will not be valid. Prophet(saw) said you will not go wrong if you hold tight to it.
    One of the wife of the Prophet(sa) misguided people and started the first civil war among the muslims. That is not guidance.

    (salam)
    Welcome Shia.Romania. Thank you for letting us know about Romanian Shias. I never knew that we had any Shias in Romania.
    I have many Romanians friends and colleagues and they are mostly Christians (Orthodox). I found them extremely tolerant of my Islamic faith.

    Gypsy got a reaction from A Muslim Artist in Qur'an & Sunnah Or Qur'an & Ahlul Bayt?   
    (salam)
    This actually reminded me of the Iraqi Information Minister :!!!: He was denying the US forces were in Iraq eventhough the tanks (US) were 100meter behind him. A year after the occupation, he had this to say to one of the Middle East TV network "The information was correct but the interpretation was not".
    I think the most important goal for Sunnis should be to find out the reason why the Holy Prophet(saw) mentioned the Ahlul Bayt in his last sermon.

    :!!!: Eyelid Stickers Let You Sleep at Work if Your Coworkers are Blind Idiots
    So you want to sleep at work. I can't say that's the brightest idea in the world, but who am I to judge? Let me help you out: if you want to sleep at your desk and also look really, really creepy while awake, all you need to do is buy some of these eye stickers. Slap 'em on your closed eyelids, learn to sleep sitting up, and you'll be sure to fool everyone who walks by your desk. There is absolutely no way for this plan to fail… trust me.

    Gypsy got a reaction from Al Hadi in Sheikh Yaser Al Habib   
    (salam)
    I am sure they didn't start smoking in the 80s. They were probably addicted to cigs way before the 70s and 80s. I can't answer about the knowledge of ill health affect of tabacco in Najaf or Qum. You need to ask someone who used to live in Qum and Najaf in 70s, who remembers what it was like back then in regards to smoking.
    I hate cigarettes. No one should smoke. And I am not defending their actions. But you need to forgive people who commit mistake/sin when they didn't have science and technology or internet/wikipedia to let them know exactly how cigs are bad for your health and what property in the cigs make you addictive.

    You can’t fault people who used to smoke because they didn’t know it was harmful to your health. This was the case back then. If smoking didn’t cause cancer, most of us would probably smoke 10 packs of cigs a day. Enough about cigarettes. Let’s get back to Mr Yasir Al Habib.
    So, where do we draw the line between one-man freedom to speak about stuff that matters to him (but will annoy a whole lot of people at the same time) vs keeping quiet or be more tactful when speaking about “Sensitive issues”? :unsure:

    Gypsy got a reaction from Ali Hasan Ali in Ismaili's Don't Believe In Hazrat Ali's Imamat?   
    Some of the Ismaili sect generally refer to Ali (as) as the successor of the Prophet. They don't addressed him as the Imam. They don't believe in twelve Imams like we do.
    Also, there is another Ismail sect that recognize Imam Ali and Imam Husayn as the first and second Imam. They treat Imam Hassan as the custodian of the Imamah.
    This is from the top of my head. I don't have available reference for this.

    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.

    Gypsy got a reaction from funklebits in Ismaili's Don't Believe In Hazrat Ali's Imamat?   
    The current Aga Khanis or followers of Aga Khan, if they are even religious, have mostly adopted the Sunni fundamentals. But you can still find some of his followers who still holds Ali (as) in high regards and deemed him as the rightful heir to the Holy Prophet (pbuh). But it is hard to figure out what their religious belief is in the 20th and 21th century because most of them or a very significant number of them are very secular. Even the Aga Khan and his family do not appear to be holding to some of the traditional Islamic values that are heavily emphasized in Islam.
    Their practices are quite different, not only from us, the Shia, but also from other Muslims. I remember seeing a cultural video of them performing arts and dances wondering if they have been heavily influenced by the cultural aspect of other religion.
    I don't know what you mean by they are claiming themselves as being Shia? We don't really consider anyone other than us as Shia. Unfortunately, we cannot stop people using the label Shia.
    Think of this way. The Sunnah wal-Jamaah claim that they are living and following the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) and even refereed to themselves as Sunni. But we know that isn't true.

    The white converts to Islam are perhaps the most desirable group. They get special treatment more than oh say converts with not so white skin..black/African, Asian etc.
    I'm not surprised. Almost all the communities (Arab, Persian, Indian/Pakistani etc) subscribe to glorifying the fairer skin and looking down on people with darker/brown skin.

    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.
