    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in Shia genocide in Afghanistan   
    My heart bleeds for the Hazara brothers and sisters. Rarely in history of the human civilization have there been such a mazloom people! It is a shameful thing that we have left our brothers in the lurch.
    Over the centuries these poor people have had to endure so much oppression just because they swore by professing loyalty to the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام)! May the Imām (AJ) acknowledge their sacrifices and reward them when he comes!

    I doubt if anyone in the middle east even, even the Shi'a who live there, knows what is going on in Afghanistan, brother. There's an absolute media blackout. Hardly any media coverage is being directed towards Afghanistan right now because there's no prospect of increasing TRPs.
    If the Arab Shi'a population, or even those Shi'a who are living in the West, are somehow not aware of the bloodbath in Afghanistan, it can still be understood by some stretch, but what excuse do the Shi'a in Iran, Pakistan and India have to keep quiet? Our brothers are being killed literally the next door and we are still not ready for this conversation, let alone taking things to international platforms.

    The discussion is not why do we support Palestine. The question is why everyone gives so little preference to Hazara Shi'as. If 85 poor, innocent school children had been killed somewhere else we would be seeing people in the streets lightning candle, trending hashtags and whatnot. The sad thing is even many Shi'as don't care and are more interested in Palestine. Hamas can fire rockets, Hezbollah is ready to get involved, Iran backs Palestinians all the time but who is there for Hazaras?

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to Ya Mahdi1999 in How to remove fantasies of being in a relationship?   
    Salam, 
    Is there a possible way to stop fantasising about being in a relationship with a female. Like many young people, the thought of having a loved one and being loved is captivating my mind both day and night. It's killing me to such an extent that my mental health is declining.

    It's almost as if my mind and soul has been convinced that the only way i can experience happiness in life is if I have someone to share it with. But the thing is, the thought of marriage won't be happening anytime soon.... perhaps years..... perhaps I may never find true love.

    My life has been so incredibly unfulfilling this past year, particularly these last few weeks. I have no friends, a dead social life, no "meaningful" hobbies. My interests are exercising, solitude walks in the park and playing video games which are pretty bland.

    Each time I go out, I feel lonely and unworthy. Maybe that is why I have been overly obsessed with finding a partner, but I have severe low self confidence that it would make it impossible to find one if I even tried.
    Perhaps this is just my brain trying to seek a way out of the constant daily challenge of remaining chaste and avoiding haram. 

    Is there anyway to remove these excessive fantasies? Thanks

    At Sistani's office:
    Sistani's assistant: *Fidgeting and staring at the ground with a dejected and nervous face
    Sistani: What's the matter? Is there something bothering you?
    Assistant: No, Sayyid. It's nothing.
    Sistani: Don't say that, tell me what the matter is
    Assistant: Well, sir... @bu_noor89 publicly challenged you to a debate
    Sistani: So what? We can't worry about every salafi that tries to-
    Assistant: Sir he works for Sunnah Discourse.....
    Sistani: We're finished. It's all over. Do you still have the receipt on my turban? Because I will need to return it now
    Assistant: Sir, we still have a chance. He said you could choose the topic, and he'll give you double time
    Sistani: Please, this is not the time for jokes. Not even with INFINITE time could the entire Shia Ummah muster up one measly reply to any of his points
    Assistant: I don't know how we got away with it for so long. It was only a matter of time before they put an end to us. MAN. And we were THIS close to completing our zionist takeover of the world. We created the corona virus to weaken the world for nothing!
    Sistani: There is one thing that can be done
    Assistant: Taqqiya?
    Sistani: No. I must fake a coma. The only way survive this code red level disaster is to pretend I'm incapacitated so people don't think I ran away from the debate. Otherwise we are FINISHED.

    My friend is about to lose her home. Does anyone here have any connections in Portland Oregon who might be able to help? She has pets, joint custody of her children, she needs wheelchair accessible, and she is on a small fixed income. 
    If you can't help, please pray for her to find a stable, safe, and beneficial home, or the ability to remain in the one she is being forced to leave. (New owners want to occupy it themselves, not rent.)

    actually there is a military group in afghanistan by hazaras to defend themselves against taliban. However they are primarily in central afghanistan because thats where most hazaras live and not in Kabul. Although they are not against the government the government doesnt want them. The commander is called commander sword his name is Alipour. There also were hazara military groups in 1980-1990s but eventually dissolved. Inshallah taliban cowards and their funders pakistan's government get destroyed

    AbdusSibtayn reacted to realizm in Shia genocide in Afghanistan   
    Look at it from another perspective.
    Arabs inherited Palestine as a common cause, before Shia/Sunni strife came on the scene. So it is not unhealthy for Arabs to stand out for other Arabs. Also, please bear in kind that before 1948, there were several Shia families living in Palestine. 
     
    And apart form this, if you speak on a more global level, indeed on one side Shias do not give as much importance as they should to Hazaras suffering, but on the other side, you see Sunnis being relatively silent on atrocities committed on Sunnis, like Boko Haram, terror attacks in Kenya. Same happened in the 90s with Taliban or GIA in Algeria. 
    It's human nature, some causes are more focused on than others, and gain more sympathy. 
    It's not just us shias.

    Would 100% recommend what brother @Uni Student has suggested. If you are unable to deal with this on your own, I think you need to seek professional help.
    Build your life around Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and His viceregents (عليه السلام) on earth. Life is not worth wasting on these things. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) chose to bless you with a mu'min family, a comfortable life, a good job, a respectable and fulfilling career. Utilise these resources to work on yourself. The parable of this world is like a bubble. Everything that we love and are attached to will perish. Nothing will matter except our belief and deeds. Everything will perish, except the Face of your Lord.
    Let me narrate to you the story of a saint called Abu Hafs al-Haddād. Once while he was a young man, he  fell head over heels in love with a girl, so much so that even for a single moment he couldn't get her out of his mind. He became nearly mad due to the pangs of longing and separation, and he ultimately decided to enlist the help of a sorcerer.
    The sorcerer listened to his problem, and commanded him, "For forty days, give up all acts of worship, and in so many days, you will meet the object of your desire".
    Abu Hafs gave up all prayers, dua, zikr..... everything. All acts of worship. Yet the stipulated duration passed and nothing happened. He couldn't gain the attention of the young woman he loved so madly.
    He went back to the sorcerer, worried. The sorcerer was confounded. He thought intently for some time, and asked Abu Hafs, "Did you perform any good deeds in these past many days?"
    Abu Hafs, after racking his brain for some time, replied that on one of those days he had removed a brick lying on a busy street, so that noone may trip over and fall.
    The magician was elated and exclaimed, "O young man! So merciful is your Lord that for such a tiny act of kindness He has given you rewards equal to an act of worship! Even when you let go of Him, he didn't let go of your hand! Why do you seek that which is other than Him!!?"
    These words of the magician pierced the heart of Abu Hafs. He let out a wailing cry, and fell into sajdah, seeking the forgiveness of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
    That same Abu Hafs went on to become one of the greatest saints in the history of Islam.
    Realize your self worth, sister. I know these things are easier said than done, but not impossible too . Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) yahdik.

    Of course, being entitled to respect doesn't mean that the parents are above the law. Even the extent of obedience to the parents is till they don't violate the sacred law. Beyond that you are not obliged to obey them. You don't have to act on their command if it is something against the religion. You can take them to court if they violate your rights/harm you. Entitled to respect =\= above the law.
    I believe that it is not fair to draw an analogy between the government and the parents. Government is an impersonal institution and the bond between parents and offsprings is something very personal, which in itself makes a huge difference in how we view the two things. Besides, government is a much more powerful entity, with a much greater systemic power over our selves. Abusive parents can at worst cause you mental trauma (we are not discussing criminal offences/jurisprudence here,which is a separate discussion in its own right, but merely bad conduct). An oppressive government can deprive not just us as individuals, but millions of others besides us too, of their lives and liberties. There's a whole spectrum between between a government not behaving respectably and it being outright tyrannical, which I also think we should keep in mind.
    If a Sayyid were, for example, to commit adultery (God forbid) or be found inebriated in public (God forbid), or murder someone, he/she would, as per the Islamic law, not be exempt from punishment solely by virtue of being a descendant of the Prophet (S). The usual stipulated hudūd (punishments/penal actions) would apply to them too.
    'Respect' here is not some metaphysical thing existing in abstraction. It has its own conditions.

    Salaam,
    Just like the wives of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) are regarded and respected despite this that some of them really commit wrong in their lives and disobeyed. Why are they respected? Because of the honor of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) himself. Similarly, the lineage of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is also respected as an honor to The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). It doesn't mean there bad actions and good actions have no weight. On the day of judgement, everyone will be judged by there deeds. The respect to them is just in this life. If they are boastful and bashful then there is a hadith from Imam Musa Kadhim (عليه السلام)," A person with a little bit of arrogance will never enter paradise." 
    https://www.al-islam.org/greater-sins-volume-3-ayatullah-sayyid-abdul-husayn-dastghaib-shirazi/thirty-third-greater-sin-pride
    Though, it is not specifically mentioned regarding 'proud of being Sayyid' but still pride is pride and a 'lesser Kufr' as it is said in the link I shared.
    To conclude, your respect for a sayyid is in honor of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and you will be rewarded for that on the day of judgement. It is your deed and it will testify for you. Nothing to do with that particular Sayyid being good or bad. 
    And that Sayyid will be punished badly as his pride will testify against him.
    So, it is a general respect for the honor and love of Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). 
    Don't we respect our parents, even if they are extremely bad? Because it is a command of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). And are we not kind to those who hurt us according to reliable hadith? 
    So, nothing over here is like tit for tat. And everything will be balanced on the day of judgement inshallah.
