    Gypsy got a reaction from I AM ALI in Thoughts (2010-2016) [ARCHIVE]   
    (salam)
    I am wondering why Muslims can be baited so easily. (In case you guys are wondering, I just finished watching the video posted in the Lars Vilks topic in Politic forum).

    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.

    Gypsy got a reaction from Ya_isa (as) in Aysha And Hafsa   
    Ayesha fought the Imam of time. The Prophet said that anyone who fight the Imam of time died as if they were alive in the Jahilliya. The Quranic verses testified that some of his wives were not faithful to the teaching of Islam.
    Ayesha herself said she was not Ahlul Bayt. Also Umm Salam said she was not included in the Ahlul Bayt. None of the wives were.

    (salam)
    Speaking about successor to Imam Jaffar as-Sadiq(as), do you guys know what is the major problem with Ismaili history? Even an Ismaili historian like Dr Farhad Daftary has acknowledged this fact. There isn’t a lot of information or stories about their Imams from Ismail until the Fatimid established their government. There isn’t much written about 5-6 of their Imams. There is a lot of mysteries here.

    (salam)
    I know both the Ismaili bohras and the followers of Aga Khan. I have met and talked with many followers of their sect.
    We'll I don't see how certain wahhabis are consider Muslims. They fast and pray but they also bomb and kill innocent Shias.
    How about people who fought the ahlul bayt (Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ayesha)? They are still Muslim right? :unsure:

    (salam)
    I know for a fact that not all Ismailis reject Sharia. They are some Ismailis who upholds all the religious obligations such as prayers, fasting etc. They even keep the Prophet (sawa) family close to their heart. It is incorrect and totally unfair to pronounce Ismailis as Kafir.
    Personally, I dislike people (common men) making takfir on each other. We don't like the wahhabis when they go around declaring Shia as kafir and fit to be killed. You need to be extra careful when you make controversial remark. You don't want to start oppressing people and get them killed because you don't like some aspect of their sect. With proper dawa, I am fairly confident that you will get good people back on track (the correct Islamic teaching).
    The best is to check with your marja. He would know.

    Gypsy got a reaction from Ali_Hussain in Marriage- living with parents   
    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.

    Gypsy got a reaction from Rightly Guided Benefactor in why do the shia hate the sahaba   
    We shias do not hate sahabas. We love Sahabas a lot.

    They were certain people who happen to be sahabas ..who supported falsehood. We are against such people. And we have a right to say that these people were against Islam.

    And we Shias can’t be blamed for telling something that is soo true even if it might be hard for some people.

    You better read the history of how this forum came into existence
    This forum is not only for Ismaili discussion but also for Zaydis, Druzes, Qaramite, Nusayris, Yazadis, Zorastrian, Sabeans and other sect that do not fit in the mainstream Islamic school of thought. The goal of this group is to not only dispel misinformation about Shiaism (Ithna Asharis) but also to share knowledge and notes among the members of this forum.

    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.

    Gypsy got a reaction from Ibnu Hasan Malizi in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia   
    Hello Sarah, I am Zareen from Malaysia. I am located in Kuala Lumpur.

    I know few Shia families in Malaysia. Most of them are underground. Being a Shia is not something that is advisable these day. The people here use to be warmth and accommodating towards people of other race and religion but for the last 10 years or so things has change dramatically. The wahhabis ulama are taking over and their goal is always pronouncing others as Kafirs

    I love Sunni people from Malaysia. They are lovely people. A lot of them have embrace the faith of Ahlul Bayt

    There is another br here who I believe is from Malaysia

    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.

    I think your mental and emotional health is very fragile. You cannot be so depressed that an Internet relationship is not working out. Knowing how relationship affects you, I think it's best for you to avoid men or relationship until you get over or heal from your past

    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.
