  1. Video went viral for some reason, among 5-300 view videos. A good thing imo.
  2. Best dua I've used so far: http://bit.ly/1JpFTUd

  5. Most people here live in the West brother, or at least as far as I've seen. That's why they probably don't know. Sorry.
  6. What if I put a nice video in the background and had a narrator narrate the letter and advertise it on YouTube... Would that be permitted or would it be taken down/dangerous for me?
  7. Message of ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of The Islamic Republic of Iran In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful To the Youth in Europe and North America, The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts. I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth. I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West. Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated.A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies. The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable. By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought? You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam. My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from. I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam. Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media? Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries? I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders. Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths. Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.

  8. (Bismillah) JazakAllah khair, both of you, for the informational responses. Understood. (Wasalam)
  9. (Salam) Is it obligatory upon a woman to reply to a man saying 'Salam Alaykum' to her when she is alone, for example in an elevator, or is it better to remain quiet to prevent anything from escalating? Please give references to fataaweh of maraajeh and please no feminists. JazakAllah khair. (Wasalam)
  10. (Bismillah) (Salam) Afasy, I felt the crack myself so I'm sure it's a crack. It's just not very significant though. (Wasalam)
  11. (Bismillah) (Salam) :cry: May Allah throw these rabid dogs into Saqar :cry: http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-father-commits-suicide-after-isis-members-rape-wife-and-daughter-in-front-of-him-because-he-couldnt-pay-poll-tax-122220/
  12. (Bismillah) (Salam) http://i.imgur.com/chS8ROsh.jpg I just got this Aqiq ring. Can I wear it? As you can see there is a crack/scratch along the surface. I have heard it is makruh to wear a cracked ring although this crack is very light. I don't really know what qualifies. If anyone can shed some light on this it would be great. Thanks. (Wasalam)
  13. (bismillah) (salam) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoHOfDzX7F4 :donno: (wasalam)
  14. (Bismillah) (Salam) There are like 10+ conditions. One of them is that the man must not be in extreme poverty. (Wasalam)
  15. (Bismillah) (Salam) Has anyone used the software and can you let me know if the Farsi language pack is any good for learning fluent conversational Farsi in 5 months? Thank you. (Wasalam)
  16. (Bismillah) Where are you getting these from sister?

  18. (bismillah) (salam) Thank you for sharing sister. I think... If Karbala is attacked... We should also go and join if we are able. Islam is not a pacificst faith. We are not meant to stand by and let people kill us. Think a little man. (wasalam)
  19. (Bismillah) (Salam) Oral sex is not prohibited with the condition that liquid is not ingested due to it being impure. The other one is deemed very strongly disliked by a few scholars and impermissible by others for many reasons, hygenic and otherwise, which a simple Google search will show you. Everything else is permitted, just like in Protestant Christianity, as far as I know. (Wasalam)
  20. (Bismillah) (Salam) Sister Ruq, this is a great series that you may like. He talks about how all negative emotions, usually, are self-induced and helps one gain perspective on how to eliminate them completely through excercising one's god-given free will. Part 1: (Wasalam)
  21. (Bismillah) ^akhi I suggest you read some books on Islamis theology because your ideas of God are not at all in line with what Islam prescribes to God. God is all-good and God can only do good. Good is not something defined by humans. Good emanates from God and his attributes, which we can reflect as we were created in His image. (Wasalam)
