humanbeing101 reacted to Gaius I. Caesar in Racism on ShiaChat
Well, I am not naming any names here but I was told once that converts are untrustworthy and not sincere in their deen, one day "I would follow Islam" and the next day I would "worship Buddha".
Said member also kept calling me "white boy" after I told them to stop, but that's entirely my fault because I tolerated it when I shouldn't have.

So there's discrimination against converts here, no doubt. Shame really,but I have my friends here.
humanbeing101 reacted to Hassan- in The Ages Of Aisha And Lady Fatima (as) At Marriage
@MohammadAli1993 read this below by Dr Sheikh Mansour Leghaei.
1. Women have traditionally married at younger ages than men, although the average age of marriage has increased for both sexes with time.
2. If Prophet’s marriage to a 9 year old girl is pedophilia then the history of western countries has recorded a lot of pedophilic relations. Margaret Beaufort (mother of Henry VII of England) was married to John de la Pole at the age of 7 in 1450. Likewise, Anne de Mowbray, 8th Countess of Norfolk, was married to Richard of Shrewsbury, the first Duke of York at the age of 6 in 1477. Also, Margarethe of Austria; the daughter of Emperor Maximilian I, was not even 3 years old when she became the fiancée of the French Crown prince Charles! And the list goes on.
3. Historically girls were married at a much younger age than nowadays. Such marriages were more proxy marriages and the girl would be betrothed with the consent of her father.
4. As for the age of Aisha – the wife of the holy Prophet Muhammad (s) – at the time of her marriage, unlike the common mistake, she was most likely around 17 years of age for the following reasons:
a. Historians asserted that her older sister ‘Asma’ was 10 years older than her (Ibn Katheer, vol.8 p.345). Asma was born 25 years before the migration of the holy Prophet (s). That means her younger sister in the year of the Prophet’s migration was 15 years old.
b. Bukhari (vol. 3, pl. 3606) quoted from Aisha that she was engaged to the holy Prophet (s) 3 years after the demise of his first wife ‘Khadija’, which is the first year of his migration, when Aisha was 15 years old. The holy Prophet (s) married Aisha two years later when Aisha would be 17 years of age.

Question: Is it permissible to shave the two sides of the face and leave the hair on the chin?
Answer: Shaving the beard is haram based on obligatory precaution, and this includes the hair that grows on the sides of the face. However, there is no problem in shaving the hair that grows on the cheeks.
humanbeing101 reacted to Qa'im in Ja'far al-Sadiq and the Four Sunni Imams
1. Shafi`i and Ahmad b. Hanbal lived after Imam as-Sadiq and never met him.
2. Abu Hanifa and Imam as-Sadiq were contemporaries, but they had strong disagreements with one another. The term "student" must be used very broadly - Imam as-Sadiq taught thousands of people, openly at Masjid an-Nabawi and at his house.
3. Malik b. Anas narrated a small handful of hadiths from Imam as-Sadiq, and according to one report, Malik only went to the Imam in the last two years of the Imam's life.
It's a little misleading to suggest that they were padawans of the Imam, as some do.
humanbeing101 reacted to Lion33 in Can someone explain Deobandis for me?
I know deobandis very well. They are in reality chisti sufis who kinda act like wahabis but they aren't wahabies. There whole movement is a political one and they might be acting "wahabi" to get saudi funds but overall they are not as bad as you think.
dont get me wrong I would not encourage one to study with them or sit in their circles especially if you have shia ulama to sit with but they are not the same as wahabies is the point I am trying to make, they are actually very anti wahabi.
that is not true, they are very much against the salafi aqeeda, I have actually taken classes with them where the whole class was a refutation of the salafi aqeeda. they also are huge supporters of tawassull. Dont get me wrong deobanids can be annoying and I have gotten into many arguments with them but what your saying is completely incorrect.
humanbeing101 reacted to starlight in Do mainstream sunni acknowledge Muawiyah's actions
Lots of mainstream sunnis name their sons Muawiyah and Sufyan. Makes me cringe every time I hear the names being said.
humanbeing101 reacted to ali_fatheroforphans in Do mainstream sunni acknowledge Muawiyah's actions
This statement is even made by some sunnis, "he was neither good nor bad".
Some sunnis realise that he is not worthy of being loved but still not worthy of being hated. Like he might of done some good deeds during his time.
Not only muhawiya(may Allah curse him), I know many sunnis despite knowing yazid's(may Allah curse him) character say that he should not be hated the way we shias hate him. Sunnis think that he was a leader who made mistakes just like any one of us. They said we should leave judgment to Allah and ask for their forgiveness (some even say).
I don't think killing the grandson of Prophet is just a mistake. I like to ask all sunnis to never condemn the kiĺlings of Sadam Hussein, Adolf Hitler etc. If they hold this hypocritical view.
humanbeing101 reacted to Lion33 in Do mainstream sunni acknowledge Muawiyah's actions
This is true that they put r.a. but most of them dont know what they are doing or saying in the first place.
humanbeing101 reacted to Lion33 in Do mainstream sunni acknowledge Muawiyah's actions
from what I have noticed is that wahabis think he was "good" or they say we neither love or hate him. Sufi/sunnis on the other hand either avoid the topic completely, criticize him, and a bunch of other stuff, basically they(sufi/sunnis) aren't really clear on what their position is and they aren't openly united on a position.
humanbeing101 reacted to Hassan- in Did the Prophet(ﷺ) respect Aisha?
The Prophet (s) respected all his wives because he was simply the Prophet of Allah, the most respectful person with the best akhlaaq. Below is a hadith that I would like to show you of an example of how the Prophet (s) treated his two wives Aisha and Hafsa when they disrespected him and accused him of having bad breath.
One of the wives of the Prophet (s) was Zaynab bint Jahash. She knew that her husband was fond of honey. She, therefore, obtained the variety of honey which he liked very much. It so happened that Zaynab was the most beautiful of the wives of the Messenger of Allah. He thought very highly of her. This was a cause of some anxiety to Aisha, she feared lest he gave all his love to Zaynab, to the exclusion of his other wives. Therefore, she and Hafsa, a third wife of the Prophet, worked out a scheme the purpose of which was to make him dislike honey. The rest of the story is told by Aisha herself. Bukhari has quoted her in his Book of Talag (Divorce), and Book of Tafsir (of Sura Tahreem) as follows:
I and Hafsa made this plan that when the Messenger of Allah visits any one of us, she should tell him that his mouth reeks with "maghafeer." (maghafeer is something sweet to taste but has a pungent and unpleasant odor. Prophet Muhammad (s) was very sensitive on this point. He hated strong odors). It so happened that Hafsa was the wife he visited first. As soon as he entered her chamber, she said: "O Messenger of Allah! Your mouth has the odor of maghafeer." He said: "I did not eat maghafeer. But when I was with Zaynab, she gave me some honey to eat. It is possible that the honey had the odor of maghafeer. But in future, I shall not eat honey." Here two wives of Prophet Muhammad - Ayesha and Hafsa -are seen working against a third wife - Zaynab. Zaynab had not done any harm to Ayesha and Hafsa. She was a cousin of the Prophet; he was the son of her maternal uncle. She loved him and he loved her. She knew his likes and dislikes, and kept a certain variety of honey at home which she knew, was his favorite. Muhammad's love for Zaynab kindled the flames of jealousy in the heart of Ayesha. To quell those flames, she hatched a scheme with Hafsa against Zaynab and implemented it. Apparently, these two ladies did not trust their husband for fairplay. They thought that he was being partial to Zaynab - perhaps at their expense. If they had trusted him, they would not have hatched such a scheme.
Then this verse was revealed right after ‘O Prophet! Why do you ban (for you) that which Allah has made lawful for you . . . If you two (wives of Prophet) turn in repentance to Allah,’ (66:1-4)
The Prophet (s) knew about their little game they are playing, but being the man he is, he said he will not eat that honey anymore. There are a lot more hadiths of Aisha doing and saying similar things which I will not put here since my post will be too long, but regarding who the best wife of the Prophet (s) was, it was Khadija.
I did not feel jealous of any of the wives of the Prophet as much as I did of Khadija though I did not see her, but the Prophet used to mention her very often, and whenever he slaughtered a sheep, he would cut its parts and send them to the women friends of Khadija. When I sometimes said to him, "(You treat Khadija in such a way) as if there is no woman on earth except Khadija,”he would say, "Khadija was such-and-such, and from her I had children."
Khadija was the foremost believing woman, to whom Gabriel gave Greetings, and was given the glad tidings of Paradise.

humanbeing101 reacted to Don'tMakeAس in Did the Prophet(ﷺ) respect Aisha?
The interesting thing about this narration is that it 'Aisha herself who is narrating it.
So when the narration tells us that 'Aisha "silenced" Zaynab bint Jahsh, that divine inspirations only came in her bed, that the people of Medina used to bring gifts to the Prophet when he was with her, and that she was the Prophet's favorite, it is more of a self-praising boast than anything else.
humanbeing101 reacted to Don'tMakeAس in Can someone explain Deobandis for me?
Despite what Wikipedia might say about them having some sort of Sufi-influenced beliefs, the reality is that Deobandis on the ground are just a product of a slightly watered-down, sub-continental, and Hanafi form of Salafism/Wahhabism. The Deobandi Movement has also always been a major recipient of Saudi Arabian funding in Pakistan and India, and is one the major vehicles by which the global Saudi exportation of Wahhabism is occurring.
From what I have observed on a local level in Pakistan, Deobandis tend to be less extreme and takfiri than Salafis, and also slightly more critical of terrorism. They also have very small differences with the Salafiyyah in terms of fiqh, such as the fact that they do not yell "ameen" at the top of their voices after Surah al-Hamd is recited in salah (as pure Salafis do). However, the vast majority of their beliefs and practices are virtually identical to those of Salafis.

DISTURBING IMAGES: White Helmets BUSTED killing babies in PR stunt to start war in Syria
White Helmets have been caught faking rescues and doctoring dead children.
They won an Academy Award and George Clooney is doing a big budget Hollywood film on the group
The White Helmets are adored by western audiences, but loathed by those who have done their due diligence to recognized that the group is nothing more than ISIS in an NGO disguise.
Now a bombshell analysis from the Swedish NGO Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) accuses the Syria Civil Defense (aka the White Helmets), of falsifying information about its “humanitarian work” in Syria.
According to Swedish human rights activists, so-called “rescue” procedures filmed in White Helmets propaganda videos, is a complete staged hoax.
The procedures in the video and photos below have been carefully analyzed to show that they were carried out on a dead child, who may have been killed by the White Helmets in order to film the footage.
Chairman of Swedish Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDH), Professor Marcello Ferrada de Noli, notes…
There is a lot of evidence to consume, condemning the White Helmets charade contained in the full article from Professor Marcello Ferrada de Noli. Here is a link to the Indicter magazine, detailing the White Helmets hoax in its entirety.
Below is the smoking gun evidence from the video released above, in sequenced screenshots, clearly showing that the White Helmets are not saving babies, but killing babies.
WARNING. The images below are very graphic and may be disturbing to see.

The owner of that blog obviously is saying hateful things. Definitely not an Islamic blog. Clicking to read his nonsense will only increase his views and make him happy, which will encourage him to continue his hate. I would not read that blog.
