    insearchoflight got a reaction from TryHard in If A Girl Is Ugly, But Religious, Would You Marry?   
    I've seen people marry not so good looking but religious spouses and Alhamdolillah very happy.
    It is a sign of faith to marry one like that.
    There is a couplet in Urdu saying
    khuda jab husn deta hai, takabbur aa hi jata hai
    One who looks at hereafter, a religious girl will always be his choice over beautiful one who isn't.

    Salam Sis,
     
    Where was God when Imam Hussain (as) was martyred ?
     
    That question should help you understand that Allah has a plan for everything where no one will be denied Justice. 
     
    He is the one who created Satan in first place and gave him respite till end of the world. Can He not just finish him ?
    He isn't bound by having to show his presence immediately when oppression happens, neither would he not answer call of those who pray. Have you not read of stories of how buildings collapse in bombardments yet miraculously people survive?. No one can kill one whom he saves and no one can save one who's time has come.
     
    Should Allah not give respite to those who are wrong lest they come back and say Allah wasn't just with them and afflicted them immediately even before they could repent?
     
    This is where belief comes in. He is All knowing, Seeing, Hearing, and has control over everything.
     
    Are they waiting until the angels or your Lord come to them or for some miracles to take place? On the day when some miracles of God will take place, the belief of any soul will be of no avail to it unless some good deeds have been done with it, or it has been formed before the coming of such a day. Tell them, "Wait and we, too, are waiting."
     
     
    Wa Salaam

    Six years later:
     
    Al-Mizan is fully translated but available in hardcopy only. Partial pdf available in various online sites. Website al-mizan.org has partial translations.
    AL-Kafi - Complete translations yet unavailable but a lot of work is completed without notifying authenticity of hadith. 
    Bihar-ul-Anwaar only Volume 41,51-53 Translated in English. Old Urdu translation scanned copy is available but hardly readable.
     
    Its a sad thing to see much of Shia Hadith, Quran Exegisis/Tafsir is unavailable in English.
     
    I feel shia are more interested to only quote from Sahih and Masnad all of whom are available in various languages, formats, applications :)

    The angels on your shoulder who write your deed are invisible. For all we know humans would deny what they wrote but still Allah decides to keep them there. Despite HIM knowing in advance what is going to happen and who will do what.

    For your question op, why do we need imam if Allah can guide us....
    Is like asking why he sent prophets when he can guide us.
    Why did he make Ibrahim (as) a guide when he was a prophet anyways.
    Why did he send Quran as a guide if He can guide anyways.
    Why did He ask Muslims to fight, when He can give death to anyone whom he wishes.
    Why does he let the evil flourish when he can nip them in bud.
    If you can answer them, you'll not need my answer.

    Deal one issue at a time. Don't fret about future. Seek help from Him.
    1. Do not fear family. Relationships are important too. Unless they are oath driven, sword shielding anti Shia, you can expect them to hear you out.
    2. This will be a test of faith for you to have patience and to listen without reacting, being humble, maintain respect, not say or do anything to hurt anyone, reason nicely, be willing to be questioned.
    3. Once your family learns that you are firm on what you believe and not deviated from what they presume is right path and you don't wish to change them and neither forsake them, you'll build a new relationship with them, one of acceptance, and mutual respect.
    4. Plan about marriage etc at this stage. Inshaallah by then your difficulties should be over and Allah will make ways for you.
    May Allah bestow you with mental strength and ease your difficulties by softening hearts of your family members.

    I almost cried when I read this post a few minutes ago. After my shahadah, I know that I felt a sense of safety knowing that I was protected. It was as if I was floating in a warm, protective bubble.  I also felt like was part of a big family again. My reversion was just a few months ago.

    insearchoflight reacted to Skanderbeg in Here is what happens when you discuss Unity on ummah forums   
    Salam, 

    I think to them it's very simple. They put on the television on and see some dudes cursing Sahaba and Aisha. Then on the net they read some misinformation and stories about Ibn Sabah and Ghulu. Then they talk about it with their friends who saw and read the same things etcetera. And suddenly it's clear to them oand there is no need to think about it or investigate it anymore.

    In my case it went diffirent. I was attached to Islamism, Sayyid Qutb and stuff as I believed that a healthy society can only be Islamic. 

    Then I noticed the faillure the Ummah is in today and asked myself why there is no leadership or caliphate. After some study of the history of the Caliphate I realised that things definitely went wrong from the start and asked Allah for guidance. Also the stance of many sunni countries and their support for opressive regimes and world powers plus the hate towards Shiaism made me think why muslims were so self-destructive. I became a believer in Shiaism not long after that.

    Anyway, whosoever is guided by Allah no one can make him go astray and whosoever is led astray by Allah no one can guide him. They have to do research themselves.

    insearchoflight reacted to Miss Wonderful in Shi'ite Islam on divorced virgins?   
    I dont understand how you could feel like you were a scape goat........Allah said " there is no sin on you if you divorce  women while you have not yet touched them nor settled any dowry on them."     How is that unfair to you? Besides you stated that ur ex cheated on you....don't you think he will be accounted for his sins?  I didnt see anywhere in the quran where it says " There is no sin on you if you cheated on your wife and then divorced her while not have yet touched her nor settled any dowry on them."  Second if  the suitors you are talking to, dont take the time to understand your entire story and where u are coming from, then that tells you something about them. Do you really want to be married to a guy who wont give u the  chance to explain yoruself? Good riddance those types of men   stopped courting you . And stop blaming Allah. Allah wants whats best for you even tho you are not able to see that in the moment because of pent up frustrations from  the wrong men.

    Salam Sis, 
    My advice ,don't hide your marriage from potential suitors. They will find out about it sooner or later and finding it out from somewhere else will make you look bad. It was a Nikkah , something perfectly halal, there' s nothing to hide and the marriage wasn't even consummated . If they have a problem with it , fine , you don't need to lose any sleep over it,  someone that close minded isn't worthy of marrying anyway. 
    you will be in my prayers

    Sister life has its tests. You should understand that even if you fell in love with him, it was a test from Allah, and Allah can send you someone much better who will be worthy of you. If you did your best in all this, then you can be pleased with that.
    Take this whole episode as a test sent to you. You should try to learn from it. I can't tell you exactly what you should learn and how you can improve becasue I am not you and I don't know everything about your situation.
    However, IMHO please do learn that religion is a deceiver and that all men are not the same.
    When you judge a person (especially a man) do not just look at how much interest they have in religion and how much they claim to follow it, look at their overall character. Quoting ahadith, praying, some small acts of kindness are not enough to make a person good. Many bad people have an interest in religion. I believe that religiosity is means that Allah uses to test our intellect. He wants us to be able to look through those who are "religious" and to judge people more holistically. Look for a man who is conscientious, who cares for people and wont hurt them. Religion is very important, but it has to be someone who isn't corrupt with his religion. Remember even the devil prayed for thousands of years.
    There are men who are not promiscuous at all, even when given the opportunity. I know single and married men who keep away from these things even if it is offered to them. E.g. I have a friend who works as a taxi driver and he gets offered things instead of money. He outright refuses.
    Why are you in mutah with him? Why not permanent? That can sometimes be a reg flag about his character/intentions.

    Thank you all for your kind words. 
     
    There is something very interesting about my grandmother that I've often though about
    As I said above, she had 4 children, three boys and one girl. Of those children three of them had their own children. My father had three me, my brother and my sister, and her daughter, my aunt had one. My uncle Mike has two children neither of them have their own children. So of the 6 grandchildren, the ones who had children, me, my brother, and my sister are all muslim. As some of you know me, my brother and sister all reverted to Islam, at separate times. So my grandmother, who is Christian, has 13 great grandchildren, all are Muslim(alhamdulillah).
