humanbeing101 got a reaction from Abu Nur in how do you imagine the future of iraq ?
I think you are right.
However to clarify there are around 40 million Kurds, 4 to 6 million of which as Faylis(a Kurdish clan who are predominantly Shia). That makes 10-15% of Kurds shia. I would say Kurdish nationalism in the shia Kurdish areas have made some encroachments over the past few years. I think mainly this is due to unemployment in places like Kirmanshan and Ilam. I myself personally know Kurdish fighters in Peshmerga who are shia Kurds from Kirmanshan and Ilam.
Anyway as for relations with Iraqi Kurdistan and Iran, I think it is partially dependant upon Barzani. Barzani is known by the Kurdish opposition groups, namely the PUK to be pro-Turkey. He has had dealings with Erdogan. Though we Kurds aren't all supporters of Barzani, since technically he isn't the legal president anymore as he has extended his mandate unlawfully according to the KRG.
Yeh Iraqi Kurdistan will be a secular state, which I prefer. Since there are some Salafis in Iraqi Kurdistan, although Asayish(Kurdish security forces) monitor them.

I have yet to see any proof brother that it would. I'm not proposing Kurdistan becomes independant immediately or anytime soon. I'm only really referring to Iraqi Kurdistan, the KRG has no love for ISIS. It will maintain good relations with both Turkey and Iran.
humanbeing101 reacted to Hayy ibn Yaqzan in how do you imagine the future of iraq ?
I think that this comes down to a question of what people decide to do, with their time and energy.
Ultimately, a country is just a piece of land,
and a nation is a collection of people and their ideas of how to share what resources they have,
and a state is what happens when the leaders of communities exert their strength to create some kind of order (could be good, could be bad) over a nation.
I hope and pray that the violence will stop. I can't say I know that it will.
I believe that it's more likely that the violence will stop, if people from our generation, and generations to come are able to bridge the gaps between communities, who are carrying anger, and resentment and feelings of hurt, from the past.
People often use the phrase "Education is most important, because it will save us and give us a good future"-
The important factor in that is that education is much wider than just academic discipline, it includes travel, understanding different cultures, being able to communicate effectively and critically analyse events.
I wrote this post in such a rush, please excuse me - there's plenty more to discuss on this matter.
Keep hope, and may you find peace in your heart and your life,
for family, friends and faith,

Like i said in the other thread, it's all because of our mistakes sadly by not praying to Allah or even talking with Allah swt, the answer is very simple:
الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ
[ The guided ones are: ]Those who Believe and whose hearts find tranquility And confidence in Allah's Remembrance.[ O, People ]Be sure That real tranquility for the hearts rests In Allah's Remembrance,[ regarding one's Intention and action ](28)
إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُهُ زَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَانًا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ
[ The believers are: ]Those who feel awe And trembling in their hearts when Allah's Name is mentioned; and when Words of Revelation are recited to Them, their Faith increases; and they are Those who put all their trust in their Creator and Nurturer;(2)
humanbeing101 reacted to ShiaMan14 in Does Islam accept non trianitarian Chrsitians?
I suppose Shias are catching this disease of labeling anyone and everyone kafir as if there is a great big reward for it.
Unless you are top of the notch A+ Muslim, leave the name-calling alone and concentrate on improving yourself.
humanbeing101 got a reaction from Hayy ibn Yaqzan in Why did Muhammed saw not declare Ali as at Makkah?
Why do you engage in passive-aggresiveness? An emotional response automatically gets hold of you in relation to this topic. If you have nothing regarding the actual topic, then personally I would just say nothing.
