    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Ashvazdanghe in Thoughts 2018   
    Salam ,i think It’s really hard to call other places out of Islamic world as Dar-ul-Kufr or Dar-al-Harb because christian missionaries introduce christanity from 19th century until now that it changed now mostly to Bahai’s & sunni muslims missionaries that they follow footsteps of Christian misioners between Native Americans & Africa ,Shia Muslims could be their rivals in Africa but we were weak about  Native Americans & abandons & oppressed  tribes around the world  and they separated them by  introducing Bahaism & Sunni Islam as tribal religions & seperated them as bhai’s & Sunni tribes & a little shia Muslim tribes one time I posted a comment in a converted to Sunni Islam native Americans channels in YouTube & they attacked me that it’s only related to tribe & Shias has no share in it ,btw althought it’s a story that Zakaria Razi the famous Iranian scientist had students from around the world from 4 corners of world that one of them was a Native American .

    Ranting is certainly much easier than coming up with concrete,workable solutions.
    The SC community has been, is, and shall remain a support- system for reverts and introverts, inshaallah!!

    Fair enough. But the complexity creeps in when-
    1. When, unlike this verse, the wali of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى is physically absent.
    2. The  Muslims are in Dar-ul-Harb.

    Qur'an gives us relatively clear guidance regarding a perfect government which is from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى :
     
    وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَن ذِي الْقَرْنَيْنِ ۖ قُلْ سَأَتْلُو عَلَيْكُم مِّنْهُ ذِكْرًا﴿٨٣﴾
     
    إِنَّا مَكَّنَّا لَهُ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَآتَيْنَاهُ مِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ سَبَبًا ﴿٨٤
     
    And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about Dhul-Qarnayn. Say, "I will recite to you about him a report."
    Indeed We established him upon the earth, and We gave him to everything a way.
     
     
    Everything else can not be perfect, but we can strive to reach something fair through elections.

    I was listening to a "latmiya" where an Arab dude 3alasas expresses his immense love by saying "I promise i will not cheat on you". 
    Only an Arab man would promise not to cheat on you as an expression of love!!! So a woman should feel honoured if her man says this!? I must say, I did get a great laugh though!

    The twist in the tale
    It could be a family fued
    Maulana Sami remarried sometime back. His first wife and sons were not very happy. An old family faithful is involved as he was always very heavily guarded. He recently came to his Rawalpindi home to stay with second wife.

    Youre not alone. I joked with my wife that if she met me when I was 15,16,17 up till I reverted, she would not even walk on the same side of the street I was on. I'm glad noone here knew me at that time. I've come a long way with the help of Allah(s.w.a)

    Is the discussion confined to the Imami madhab, or are the ammah included too?
    Not to say that this is the view many fuqaha in the past have held.
    I suggest you write along these three lines-
    1. What do you think is the best model for governance during the Ghaybah of the Imam (ajf)?
    2. Why do you think it is better than the existing models, and in the best interest of Islam and Muslims?
    3. How do you think Muslims ought to conduct themselves politically in non- Muslim, secular environments?

    (after) Reading different anti-Islamic threads and articles on other sites (as I do, being a person who tries to get a fair grasp of what  really think on any topic); I really have come to feel that the large majority are just automated or 'pre-programmed' in their beliefs. There is often a kind of neurotic, incessant regurgitation of the same contempt - based off over-simplified stances of certain controversial issues and treating religion itself as a monolith. Depending on the site, it will also often fall into juvenile and decrepit comments. 
    The thing is, it's rare to actually find complex arguments or objections informed by knowledge or experience of Islam. Even ex-Muslims (who are most often Sunni's, to no surprise) tend to lack a diversified and contextual knowledge of the religion to base their criticisms or oppositions to Islam off. I often find it to be a stirring pot of arrogance and intellectually dishonest fear-mongering.
    Then in other areas (related to the juvenile anti-Islamic types) Right-wingers usually show themselves and fall into criticisms based of racist stereotypes (usually directed at Arabs, Orientalism and the archetype of the 'barbaric wild man') and national identity (which are irrelevant to the religion itself).
     
    This is my thought for today, these people get more and more predictable as it goes on - a memetical chain of ideas passed across the internet. Then there's the "freedom of speech" aspect that they cling onto, which for some reason constitutes freedom to reject studying things and to reject logic - a big mistake. What a world we live in though, right?

    Apparently it's not descended from Samhain but actually tradition that developed in America as a mix-match of Irish Catholic practices of celebrating by banging pots and ringing bells on All Hallows' Eve to keep those in hell from making mischief, French Catholic practices of dressing up to celebrate All Saints' Day, and British Protestant practices of going to the houses of British Catholics on the fifth of November and threatening to burn down their houses if not given beer and cakes (they also had bonfires, costumes, and pranks apparently).

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to ali_fatheroforphans in How to reconcile being a Muslim and living in the West   
    I've noticed that a lot of Muslims change themselves depending on who they interact with. For example, at the masjid you hear Muslims say "mashallah", "alhumdulillah" almost in every sentence they utter. But when they interact with non-Muslims they kind of let go of their Islamic identity to fit in, although maybe they have pure intentions. You'll hear them throw in a few "what the f***", and not be so firm in enjoying good and forbidding evil - as in they'll try to always be apologetic to please others.
    What's your view on this? Have you noticed this from some practicing Muslims?
  23. Completely Agree
    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Abu Hadi in How to reconcile being a Muslim and living in the West   
    True, but I think finding the balance is difficult when you change environments. For example, I have seen many cases of brothers who when they lived in their country, were practicing the religion very well, then when they came here to the US, they forgot about it. I'm not sure why, but some people tell me that when they were in (Insert name of Majority Muslim country) they heard the athan, they mostly saw women in hijab, they would walk down the street to the masjid, they attended Salat Jumah, they 'felt' Ramadan and Ashura because it was evident in the environment around them, etc. When this went away, they forgot about religion. I don't see how this is possible, but apparently it is. This is what I have heard, alot. I lived in a place where I never saw these things, except when I visited a muslim country for brief periods of time. I have never been in a muslim country for Ramadan or Ashura. So I don't know. I assume they're not lying. 
    To me, someone saying 'I forgot about my religion' is the same as saying 'I forgot to breath' or ' I forgot that the sky is blue'. I don't see how that is possible.

    It's easy to tell which reverts are readers and which are people followers. Born Shia don't do dawah, but anyone who reads will quickly choose Shia Islam on their own.

    Everyone thinks him a joke; everyone laughs at him; unlike Tahir ul Qadri, this clown has no following besides the bunch of brainwashed idiots that follow him.
    He's been given power and prominence thanks to the military brass who employed old tactics of unleashing rabid fanatics on the civilian administration to make a point about who was in charge of the country. We may hate the Noon League all we want, but the fact is they did try to put the foot down on this bunch but they were 1) too scared of the final result and 2) they knew he was military's puppet. I'm referring to the fiasco that followed the so-called Khatame-Nabuwwat bill controversy.
