    Yeah, I mean, what would you even ask? If I met some of the scholars I enjoy listening to, I'd probably not have the guts to say anything, maybe with some courage I could ask "Is it raining where you live?"

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in Do you prefer the current "Islamic Regime" or shah   
    This argument is as unimpressive as it could be. A load of baseless slander and unfounded allegations against the leadership.
    Won't corruption still persist if there was a regime change in Iran? Or are you trying to suggest that somehow the people's hearts would change magically?
    The Shah loved the people? How uninformed a person has to be to make such a comment! How he was selling out his country's lands and resources to the imperialists, massacring crowds upon crowds, and siphoning off national wealth to his private bank accounts in the West shows just how much he 'loved' his people.
    I find it amusing that the only people who favor the destruction and collapse of the Islamic Republic are the pseudo-Shia taqleedi secularist-modernists, fugitive royalists living in the States, left-liberal fifth columnists, hawkish imperialists and pro-imperialists, the nawasib, the self-obsessed phony intellectuals, and the intellectually-dysfunctional, emotional-wreck hormonal teenagers who can't tell apart Imam Ali (as) from Imam Ali ar-Rida (as) or Ali an-Naqi al-Hadi (as). They don't have a modicum of knowledge about Islam or the Ja'fari madhab, don't know a scratch about the affairs of the Shia, and struggle to do their wajibat, but they salivate at the slightest opportunity to slander the Islamic republic, and go about spreading their garbage all over the internet.
    Nobody is saying the administrative system is perfect. It has lots of leakages and problems and needs vital reforms. Constructive criticism is way different from unfounded slander and libel. I know there are gaping holes in the system, but I also know that the reason why the Zionists are not dancing in Beirut, the reason why the shrines in Najaf, Karbala, Samrarra, Baghdad,and Damascus have not been razed to the ground like al-Baqi,the reason why the Shia in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bahrain have not been exterminated,and in fact, the reason why the Shia have a mention in the Western academia and a backbone in international relations today is the Islamic Republic and the Blessed Revolution of Imam al-Khumayni [rh].
    And those who are saying that the Shariah of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى ought not to be implemented just because it causes inconvenience to some munafiqeen and dunderheads need to prepare themselves for  the Night in the Grave. Do the Imperialists bother about our consent when they send money from our taxes to fund our enemy nations over and above our loud protests? Did Switzerland bother to seek the consent of Muslims before she banned minarets throughout the length and breadth of her territory? Did France bother to seek the Muslims' consent before banning hijab, or forcing Muslim shopkeepers and restaurant owners to sell pork and alcohol in their establishments on the peril of being denied their licences, and forcing women to shake hands with unrelated men? They are very clear about these policies- if you don't like our laws, don't sign up to live here. Muslims too need to reply likewise to the fifth columnists- if you don't like the laws, feel free to leave.
    I am always at the forefront of opposing blind opposition to the West, nor do I believe in the 'clash of civilizations' nonsense. There are many features of the Western civilization that I admire - the regard for institutions, the deep regard for knowledge and learning for the sake of knowledge itself, past any vulgar utilitarian or status-quoist concern, and the robust tradition of private philanthropy and welfarism. All the same, I feel little reason to change my beliefs and convictions just because they don't happen to appeal to secular liberal sensibilities.

    AbdusSibtayn got a reaction from AMR5 in How To: Assimilation of Reverts into our Communities   
    Assalmun alaykum,
    There are a few things I'd like to suggest-
    1. Tackle the language issue. When reverts come, kindly switch to English/the local language so that they feel included in the conversation.
    2. Do not humiliate/ make fun of the reverts if they get something wrong. Please understand that everything is very new to them, and they'll take some time figure things out.
    3. As has been mentioned by the other members - an end to idiotic marriage restrictions. A supportive statement by our maraja in this regard would be a big psychological boost for those of wishing for this sorry state of affairs to end.

    Hey I love rednecks hillbillies too and have many many friends amongst them , since I've lived in small towns in Midwest for almost 20 yrs
    Racism is not just white against nonwhite,  most Muslim communities are just as if not more racist 
    How many Indian /Arab/ persian father will be ok if their daughter marries a white guy or worse black guy even if they are excellent Muslims , we just don't like to admits we are racist

    Lets give credit to Sunnis (and Wahhabis), for being more diverse and accommodating of believers of different backgrounds. Being Shia, if you're not Lebanese, Iraqi, Iranian, or IndoPak, you're mostly out of luck in many places.

    One idea I have is that when the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Muslims migrated to Medina, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) assigned a Muhajir and an Ansari as brothers.
    Similarly, community centers should have volunteers (Ansar) who help Reverts (Muhajir) assimilate into the community. Of course brother-brother and sister-sister.

    Well, it's halal to follow the cultural practice which are, themselves, halal. There's no one-size-fits-all answer to your questions. You have to specify exactly which modern cultural practice you want to adopt. If it becomes fashionable for men to wear a cap in public - like it used to be expected for men to wear top hats in Victorian times - there's nothing haram about it so adopting that practice would be halal. Wearing the tight fitting yoga pants of these days contravenes the rules of hijab so adopting that cultural practice would be haram.

    Our standard is Islam. Islam is the Absolute, All Encompassing religion dear.

    And yes, this is not modernity what you wrote above, its Modern form of Jahiliya (ignorance).

    @Ali-F 
    Yeah celebrating new years is harram if you're talking about how most people celebrate it. Listening to harram music, being near people who drink alcohol and going wild - this is clearly a toxic environment. We do have to be careful how we celebrate new years. Its okay to watch fireworks but we shouldn't get carried away at all.

    I'm afraid Hollywood has been degrading morals for a lot longer than ten years. Beauty pageants have been going for almost 100 years. America was tuned in to sex and drugs and rock n roll in the 60's. Heavy metal turned people to the dark side. Death, destruction, hatred, etc. Alice Cooper learned his audience the day he threw a live chicken into the audience.  They tore it apart and some devoured it.
    Pink Floyd, (A British band that had a powerful influence on the dark side...of the moon). split up because David Gilmore couldn't handle the demonic activities surrounding Roger Waters. People thought, wow. The Rolling Stones almost broke up when Kieth Richards caught Mick Jagger in bed with David Bowie, people laughed it off. Bruce Jenner became Katelyn Jenner so s/he could be a proper lesbian, and was honoured for it.
    Each generation has gotten progressively worse.

    They aren't a big deal anymore and this accusation is something our radical left throws put to scare people into voting for the democrats, who have never met a moral code that they didn't despise.
    Once America decided to let Hollyweird's "values" be the hip & cool life philosophy to hold (hahaha!), The dominionism Christian right lost a lot of it's cultural power. That happened about ten years or so ago and sadly, the country is now a moral cesspool because going to church or having any religious beliefs at all gets you mocked and laughed at by the Ariana Grandes and Matt Damonite culture makers now.
    It's a sad state of affairs.
