  1. I wrote this in a sunni platform discussing about shia-sunni relations.......... This is a difficult topic but its good we are all discussing this and evolving our views and learning things and getting opportunity to express about the sunni-shia conflict so currently pervasive in the ummah. As you can see I am focused on Muawiya and the sunni-shia differences. I think there is no doubt in most peoples minds that Kerbala was a tragedy, Imam hussein was a hero and that Yazeed's rule can be criticized by shias and those sunnis who see him as the focus of the problem. To answer your query about Mu
  2. This is a sunni perspective. I know most people hate Muawiya here but it is coming from a traditional sunni perspective and someone keen on reconciling shias and sunnis....

  3. The other thing is the irony today. Look at syria. Muslim blood seeping all over the street. This is damascus. A holy land. Where are all those who feel the sacrifice of martyrs should be mourned and their killers cursed. Do we see Assad being cursed by shia scholars and leaders? Do we see all the major shia public authorities being cursed for endorsing such a brutal massacre? I mean this is directed to those who feel we should start cursing indiscriminately. This is 100,000 innocent muslims. Children seizing from chemical weaponry and getting paralyzed and pallid to death. Women raped and tor
  4. JazaKAllah for this excellent post. I agree with most of what you say except that I think the history of both should be taught in a way that brings us closer. In the end its all commentary and preaching which finally interprets the scriptures. So sunnis should teach history in a way that is sympathetic to the reason of the political shia schism and the shias should teach history in a way respectful of what is sacrosanct to sunnis. As far as I know much of sunni criticism of shias is not offensive to what is most deeply sacrosant to shias. I mean we talk about imamate, taqiya, muta, prayer joi
  5. Shias use sunni hadiths to show who is right. Wow!! what a revealation you have informed me of. And do sunnis use western fiction books to write literature after literature discrediting the theology, fiqh and ways of the shia? Thats the whole point. I used to attend sunni forum until it went into hibernation. There used to be a few sunnis who had created hundreds of pages of topic after topic using shia literature to prove how shia creed is a deviation. There is no use in such to and fro proclamations. Its a vicious cycle which is never ending. The best route forward is to accept differences i
  6. That will be a good teaching. If people think that discussing about sahabas is the shia duty then you will continue the sectarian divide. I say forget all that. The sunni literature is imprinted in stone about who sahabs were. You can not revise it or mold it. The more stories and negative commentary about sahabas is made. The more hard core the sunnis become. The more they research their literature and the more they become convinced that shias making such allegations are rejectors rather than refiners. So I invite all brothers here. Start talking about unity and peace. Keep the sahaba discus
  7. We have seen how indulging in technicalities and debates over hadiths, history and fiqh have led us to. Slaughter on both sides. After 1400 hundred years and in the 21st century two muslim groups still can be driven to hate each other to extreme levels. We are a laughing stock to the rest of the world. The problem is both are hard headed. Sunnis will magnify many things in shia creed which really are trivial differences to show how you lot are so so different and shias want to insist they know better about sahabas and their 'malicious intent' as exemplified by this forum. What has 1400 hundred
  8. The christian world has not dominated the overall temporal civilizational supremacy scale since Islams advent only until lately. The euro-western world picked or superseded only 17th century onwards. They were never in a position to declare that they stood superior until these last few recent centuries. And as well the muslim world is accelerating at great speed and coming out of its recession. My intent is not to say that shiasm is false. I am saying the trait of cursing sahaba means that perhaps that is the reason Allah s.w.t. has never given, throughout Islam's history shias full authority
