AbdusSibtayn reacted to ShiaChat Mod in Inappropriate Use of "HaHa" Reaction
The “HaHa” reaction is appropriate for posts intended to be funny and lighthearted, like the Poor Jokes topic. However, it has been noticed that it's sometimes used by members to mock serious posts of others who have different opinions. This is not appropriate, and members should use “Disagree” instead.
If a member does this rarely, the reaction on that post can be removed by an admin with no further disciplinary action. If a member does it repeatedly, there could be a warning.
However, if this becomes too widespread, then the reaction may be removed altogether from the site, and nobody will be able to use it.

So, you're basically a sunni.

Do you also think what I think, brother!?
After all, this doesn't look like too bad a match, does it?

Salam anyway for clarification a shia man can marry a sunni woman if she isn't a Nasibi but marriage of shia woman with a Sunni man is not recommended because most of times children are following religion & belief of father but in this case the shia man must asks Salafi woman belief about everything before doing any action or any offering as other users mentioned in previous posts because even if this marriage happens then it also can trouble for woman from her family side too because they will consider her as a shia too after marriage .
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Gaius I. Caesar in Should I not marry a sister who is claimed to be a Salafi from Egypt ?
I would reconsider, it will cause issues in raising any children with this woman. Also whether or not she is against Daesh or violence in general, she definitely admires Ibn Taymiyyah who considered Shias as kafir and ziyarah as shirk and a bidah.
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Mariam17 in Should I not marry a sister who is claimed to be a Salafi from Egypt ?
I agree. Also, culture play a big factor. I’m half Palestinian but also Egyptian. The Egyptian culture is very particular. You have to think about her mother in law, the rest of her family etc. A lot of interracial marriages don’t work out because of the cultural difference, including in my experience witnessing this. I’m not trying to throw my culture under the bus I’m just giving you a warning especially that this is combined with the fact that she is salafi. Does she live in Egypt? A lot of the new generation of Egypt are indoctrinated by Sisi as seen through their Islamic classing in which they are not taught about Palestine or Jihad because the “president” fears of revolution. This is not even mentioned the fact of the lack of education and lies made about the Ahlulbayt. Why don’t you try look for Shias instead, Egypt has Shias due to the Fatimid dynasty although they are few. Or just a devout Shia in general. Remember this potential wife would be the mother of your children and complete half your deen. How can she complete half when you don’t even agree upon the same factors within your deen.
Insha’Allah khair, just please don’t rush.
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Mahdavist in Should I not marry a sister who is claimed to be a Salafi from Egypt ?
Is she aware of your religious beliefs? Most salafi scholars would classify us as non believers.
Since she is not only going to be your wife but possibly also the mother of the children that you may have together inshaAllah, I think aqeedah is an important factor.
For this reason I would personally only recommend to marry someone who shares the same core beliefs as yourself.

I've heard of cases where the mother flips as soon as kids are involved, where they don't allow them to attend Ashura events. It's such a common phenomenon that we get mocked for it. The wisest thing to do is marry a fellow Shia, for your sake and your kids.
AbdusSibtayn reacted to THREE1THREE in Should I not marry a sister who is claimed to be a Salafi from Egypt ?
No absolutely not. Would you marry someone who supports the killers of your father ?
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Haydar Husayn in Openminded clerics
You seem to have a real chip on your shoulder. From the start of this thread you mentioned the ‘hate’ you have supposedly seen on here, and now you are acting like you’ve been attacked or something. It’s a public forum, so people will naturally give their views, but they haven’t been rude. What many have tried to explain is that the question you have asked is in itself problematic and will stir up trouble for later. They are actually trying to help you and your friend. I don’t know why you’ve chosen to take it so badly.
If someone posted on a medical forum that they really disliked the ‘hate’ alternative therapies get in the Western medical community, and wanted a recommendation for an ‘open minded’ doctor who promoted such things, would it be responsible to just point them in the direction of a few quacks and let them get on with it?
As it is, you’ve been given a couple of names. The fact that you haven’t got more is reflective of the fact that this is an extremely minority opinion, which should probably tell you all you need to know.
As for this idea of getting someone to convert to Shia Islam based on finding some scholar with a dodgy opinion on hijab, that is frankly disgusting. You don’t chose to convert to a religion for those kinds of reasons. No respectable Sunni scholar would say the hijab isn’t mandatory either.
As has already been suggested, a much healthier approach would just to acknowledge that hijab is mandatory, but that you aren’t strong enough to wear it at the moment, and see it as something to work on for the future. Plenty of Muslims live with all kinds of struggles, and obviously many Muslim women don’t wear the hijab.
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Mahdavist in Openminded clerics
I don't have any credible references available for you but I would like to make a general comment.
If one converts to Islam, essentially it should be because they believe Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is The One and Only God and Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is His messenger.
The approach of trying to find a cleric with a certain stance in order to enter the religion is not a sustainable one.
There is a narration that says that those who entered the religion through men will leave it through men.
For this reason I recommend to focus on fundamental beliefs. If she has doubts about the hijab she can always continue to research this, but it shouldn't really be the criteria to accept or reject islam and certainly shouldn't depend on some cleric somewhere deciding that maybe the hijab is not required after all.

AbdusSibtayn reacted to Cool in Popular Shia Sheikh says that Imam Ali(as) is equal to the Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)
He said the truth.
Let me elaborate his message although I haven't seen the video. And I would like to build my argument on the basis of just one verse of Qur'an:
Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 61:
فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ
This is the famous verse of "mubahila". Everyone knows that in place of "abna'ana" Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) took Hasnain (عليه السلام) with him. In place of "nisa'ana" he took Syeda Fatima s.a and in place of "anfusana", he took Imam Ali (عليه السلام) with him.
And that's why Imam Ali (عليه السلام) is famous as "Nafs e Rasool". What does that mean? It means the same what has been mentioned by the scholar as quoted by you.
I would also like to quote a famous hadith in which Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "I and Ali were created from one same light (noorun wahid)"

AbdusSibtayn reacted to notme in Women are lower than men
I was recently wondering why, in most human societies, women are judged for potential not achievement. A pretty young woman who has done nothing is considered a better potential wife than a hard-working young woman who has raised her siblings and proudly wears the marks of wisdom in her face. For that matter, a girl is considered more beautiful than a woman, a virgin superior to a loving grandmother.
Men are judged for what they have done, not what they might someday do.
Why are humans stupid like that?
It's not Islam, it's people.
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Abu Nur in Unity of acts (tawhid al-afʿal)
Twelver Shiite theologians do not see any contradiction between the attribution of human actions to themselves and to God at the same time. They maintain that human causation of acts is dependent on divine causation, and therefore human actions are attributable both to humans and to God.
Sheikh Mufid state the following:
i) that all actions are from Allah, the Sublime, or,
ii) that they proceed jointly from man and Allah, or
iii) that they are from man alone.
Now, if they were all from Allah, the Sublime, then He alone deserves to be praised for their goodness or to be blamed for their baseness, and so praise or blame for them pertain to none save Him; if they are created jointly by Allah and His servant, then the praise or the blame would pertain to them both. Since these two alternatives are absurd, it is self-evident that human actions are all from men; it rests with Him; if He pleases, He has the right to punish them for their wickedness, or if He pleases He will pardon them, for the reward of piety and forgiveness is in His hands. And there are still further traditions and reports which can be adduced in support of this.
- I believe that sheikh Mufid have very reasonable and valid point and he have quoted quranic verses that support his position very well and that people have misinterpreted these verses way off.
AbdusSibtayn reacted to Mahdavist in Where did Shia originate Hijaz or Iraq?
Walaikum as salam
Essentially the Shi'a were already present from Madinah, if we are referring to those who were loyal to Imam Ali (عليه السلام).
The current day demographics are related more to dynasties and caliphates than early islamic history.
Iran has a large shia majority even though it was originally predominantly sunni (in fact most of the compilers of the sihah al sittah were persians).
North Africa used to be largely Ismaili during the Fatimid dynasty, but today they are mainly sunni.
You mentioned Iraq, but don't forget that the eastern regions of Saudi Arabia still have a significant Shi'i population.
AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Berber-Shia in Which Marja Do You Follow? (Vote in Anonymous Poll!)
Are you sure brother? My marja allows it (FYI I don't follow the leader), and he(may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) lengthen his life) is listed by the Jameh al-Modarresin (The Association of Teachers, the most top-notch Ahlul Khibra one can get) of the Hawza Ilmiyyah of Qom as one of the six most 'alam maraji currently(just in case you come trashing his credibility).
Marhoom Sheikh Lankarani (rh.a.) allowed it too, and so did Imam Khomeini(rh.a.) What's your point?
Bring proof that chess as we know it now is the same as it was in the time of the Masoomeen(asws).
