  1. Are you a convert yourself? No offence, but the group is for converts.
  2. I'm a convert as well and we have a support group for converts on Whatsapp and Telegram. You're free to join (or not join) if you wish. I'll PM you the links
  3. I'm an extreme introvert and I don't think I could handle being married to an extreme extrovert.
  4. If you come to Qom, there are many English-speaking Western seminarians who can show you around. We also have English-language majalis during Muharram, if you choose to come during that time.
  5. In my opinion, Sayyid Ali Quli-Qurai's translation is the best translation. It's available in both hard copy and on www.tanzil.net
  6. My wife just hangs her chador on a clothes hook
  7. There are students from the Republic of Azerbaijan here at al-Mustafa International University and they are extremely anti-Armenian, nationalistic and pan-Turkic. Unfortunately, they believe their secular government's propaganda.
  8. al-Hamdulillah, I never had any problems at the centre I went to back home in Canada. They accepted me and helped me.
  9. If you have any questions about living in Qom and al-Mustafa International University, you're welcome to ask me. I'm a student and one of the representatives of the North and South American students on the Students' Council. Yes, it's possible to get accepted to al-Mustafa International University, if you have necessary requirements and pass the admission exam. Most people are accepted but if you're from a country where there are lots of students, it may be more difficult and take longer. Also, see the attachment I uploaded. It was written by one of the Western students here. Life in Qum - a practical guide.pdf
  10. We also have a group for converts on Whatsapp and Telegram called "Rebirth": https://chat.whatsapp.com/EG9Es86EPRJGx4jUGj0Jln https://t.me/joinchat/AUnBFz_f9b-vC6E_xNsECQ
  11. Some of the youth in Iran dress the same. And they think they're so cool because they're dressed in a "Western" manner. No straight person in the West dresses like some of these guys!
  12. When I first came to Iran, I hated squat toilets but after a short time, I began to prefer them and if there is a Western toilet, I never use it!
  13. I'm very much an introvert and even though I'm a revert to Islam, I have almost no non-Muslim close friends. Of course, I know lots of non-Muslims but they aren't my close friends. I have few close Muslim friends and all of them are Shi'ahs (I know lots of Shi'ahs though but against they aren't super close to me to be considered best friends). I don't know any Sunnis personally as I've never gone anywhere to befriend or meet any. I've only gone to Shi'ah mosques and husayniyahs and of course, living here in Qom, I only interact with Shi'ahs.
  14. Wa Alaykum as-Salam. ویزای تجاری Viza-ye Tejari An Indian brother who established a group of Indian restaurants here in Qom told me about it. If you want more information, I'll ask him.
