  1. Do you mean for instance Newroz? Persian new year, I believe this remained from the ancient religion of zoroastranism.
  2. Selam everyone, So I have watched some islamic videos on youtube on this channel: SoldierOfAllah2 There were 2 videos that caught my attention regarding the comments bellow in which shia and sunni brothers were discussing about a wide range of topics such as: the prophet mentioning who his successor would be , that umar and abu bakr were tirans, that they threatened to burn the house of Hz.Ali and killed his wife fatima and her unborn child by kicking in the door. Here are some quotes of a Shia brother: The Prophet chose and favored and talked about and presented Ali to people more than any one else ever lived. Yet you still say he is equal to the Caliphs. Ali was courageous, two caliphs started running away from Khaybar. Yet Ali is still equal. Okay. Two caliphs killed the daughter of the Prophet, they're still equal. One angered Fatima, yet he is still equal to Ali. Ali slept in the bed of the Prophet, another didn't give the pencil to the Prophet when he was in the bed. Anyway, Ali is the first rightly guided caliph, not the fourth, as his right was deprived. Ali is infallible and an Imam using the proofs and evidence we put on the table from Quran and the hadiths. We do not blame the Prophet; we blame the people after the Prophet. Abu Bakr and Umar and Uthman. The Prophet did his job and chose Ali as his successor. Said the Quran and the progeny. You took one and threw the other away. I really want clarification on this subject as sunnis came with comments as: ollowing two narrations were reported by both sunni's and Shee'ahs. The first one is quoted from Saheeh al Bukhaaree and the second one is quoted from a Shee'ah book: "Takhlees ash-Shaafee" It is mutawaatir upon 'Alee radhiallaahu anhu ((Which of the people is best after the Messenger salallaahu alaihi wa salam? He said: "Aboo Bakr" I said: "Then whom?" he said "Then Umar" and I feared he would say Uthmaan then I said "then you?" he said "I am not except a man from the Muslims")) The second from a shia book. Shareek bin 'Abdillaah, the Taabi'ee, when he was asked, "who is better.. Abu Bakr or 'Alee" He said "Abu Bakr". The one who asked him said, "You say this while you are a Shee'ee?" He said, "Yes any one who does not say this is not a Shee'ah by Allaah, Alee took up this pulpit and said, "ألا إن خير هذه الأمة بعد رسول الله، أبي بكر ثم عمر" By Allaah the best of this Ummah after its prophet is Abu Bakr and then 'Umar so how can we turn down and reject his saying? By Allaah he was not a liar." Narrated from Alee from more than 80 ways of narration (Talkhees ash-Shaafee Vol. 2, 428) That is ali saying it in your own book. I don't take it as authentic because it has no chain of narration like all other shia books but just to prove a point to you I will use it. they try to tell that after our prophet(PBUH) passed away the people fairly chose abu bakr as his successor, and this while Hz.Ali was washing the body of our prophet even! Could I get some clarifications concerning what the prophet actually said in his speech about his successor and leaving 2 weights behind: the holy quran and the ahlul al bayt. furthermore about what abu bakr and umar did in their lives did they do bad things? also why do sunnis think that shia are making everything up?
  3. No I am 100% certain that it is not this, he simply wants to have everything his way and he wants his daughter to marry her cousin. He is afraid he will lose his pride and cannot look his family in the eyes anymore after they hear that his daughter 'picked' a man for her own. Our cultures are very similair and religion as well. She threatened a few times that if he will continue to force her, she will run away from home. At one point ehr father was okey with me and the fact that she wanted us to engage, then he suddenly changed his mind and I think this cousin influenced him. So what should I do according to you then?
  4. Assalamu alaikum. First of all, I would like to say I wish you the best of luck when it the family issues you were talking about in your thread. I pray that Allah will unite you two in a marriage of bliss and harmonious family relations. I saw that you stated you are Alevi though, which piqued my interest. I am quite interested in Alevism, but I believe it is difficult to find reliable sources on the internet and most Alevis I have tried to contact online were either not interested in tal...

      talking or only spoke Turkish. Would you be will to tell me about your religion?

      Take care,


  5. You are right, I need to prove that I am the man he would want his daughter to marry and shouldnt feel embaressed about telling his family! Right now though we are kinda stuck her father and she dont talk much.
  6. I am Alevi I think this is equal to shia twelvers in Turkey, and she is a sunni girl.
  7. thanks, a funny thing is during the time that her father accepted me he told his daughter thath he noticed she hasent changed a bit: she is still the respectful, shy and honest girl that she is and he said this also states about what kind of a person I am. Her mother and sisters and grandmother all have positive thoughts about me because of what she told them, the thing is her father seems to be concerned about loss of his honor because he would have to tell his family back in Afhhanistan that his daughter married a Turkish man so we must have had a'relationship' and his family will gossip about this.This is why she wants her to marry her cousin also because this way he gets to chose who his daughter married, she already hooked his eldest daughter up with the son of his sister!
  8. Thank you for your advice, yes that is what we plan on to marry after university ends we would like to engage and after we have jobs only then marry eachother.
  9. Selam everyone, I am deeply in love with an Afghan girl, I myself am from Turkish/Zazaki(iranian/kurdish) origin. We have a normal relationship for one year now, I am really certain this girl is the perfect one for me and we havent done anything but hold hands and talk and walk. I want to ask for her hand like it is normal in both our cultures, first we ask the girl hand and then we get engaged an evenually marry after a few years. Her father is very strict and saw us at the bus station one time and he wants her to marry her cousin, this is what old school people that are stuck in the time do, they dont let her have any saying in this. Her mother and grandmother and sister have fought for her decision to stick with me and after 6 months it seemed to help. Her father seemed to realise that if he keeps going on like this he wil tear his family apart. He finally accepted his daughters choice and we both were so happy, after university so after 2 years we could get engaged. But now her father changed his mind again and want her to engage her cousin, she threatened to run away from home and now her father is afraid so they dont talk to each other for now. How should I approach this situation, we still see each other every day at school and we are truly in love, we want to do this the proper way through our culture and religion ( both muslim ) but her father stands in the way of her and her sisters and mothers happiness. he simply thinks his pride and honor outweigh everything else in this world and wants everything his way. Everyone of her family supports us and even her father truly knows I am really serious with his daughter. I really appreciate your help in advance, thanks everyone!
