  1. Always welcome, brother. I will see if I can recommend something else too, inshallah.
  2. To the OP- See, if the problem with the idea of hoors is its dissonance with a secular-liberal understanding, then the liberals themselves are hypocritical for finding fault with this concept and then pushing for free sex and lax sexual norms. If it is the Hindus who are using it to mock us, then they are hypocrites too, since the concept of 'hoors' or nymphs is all over their scriptures as well. Even the biggest of gods within their pantheon and their leading saints are said to have either consorted with or enamoured by such nymphs according to their own scriptures.
  3. Yes, I was talking specifically about the figure '72'.
  4. Is it really worth it? That's just beneath the average Shi'a's self-respect. That being said, there's no evidence whatsoever that they'll actually change their minds about our beliefs once given an explanation. There's a reason the rancour has persisted for a millennium and a half.
  5. But all of these are a bit dense. I'd rather you watched those videos and explained things to her simply, since she's only 7. Wa alaikas salam.
  6. You can show her Sayyid Mahdi al-Modarresi's video series on Atheism on YouTube. Also Ahmad Deedat is a good option. If you are looking for content especially on Islam and women's issues, take a look at Zara Faris's YouTube channel.
  7. The Imam of the Time (aj) prays for us every day. In every qunoot, he pleads with Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) on our behalf. When we have his prayers with us, other people don't really matter. Wassalam.
  8. Well, the ta'wil that some of them do is that the 'hell' is actually the earthly sufferings you suffer for your misdeeds in your previous life. And vice versa for heaven. That being said, I have just got my copy of Sheikh Saduq (rh) 's book 'al-I'tiqādāt al-Imāmiyyāh' ('The Creed of the Imamites/Shi'a) ; it's a dense work. I was browsing through it and found no mention of the '72 Hoor' concept- which implies that our ancestors, the early shi'a in the times of the Imams (ams) or even during the Minor Occultation and soon afterwards, didn't hold such views. But if I find something related to it I'll surely post it here.
  9. But as some others have also pointed out, the two women look two different for them to be considered the same person.
  10. In our times it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell technological bots apart from biological bots.
  11. Three hours in one go is a bit too long. They should have split into a series of videos.
  12. "After the Sarasyns gyse, Woth a whym wham, Knyt with a trym tram, Upon her brayne pan." ~The Tunnyng of Elynour Rummyug, . a 1529, Skelton, E. Rummyag 75 .
