    Habib may be going about it the wrong way, which I partially agree with you on (e.g. burning an effigy of Aisha (la), that was irresponsible and got people killed.)
    However it is evident that the idea of Rehbar came after the Iranian Revolution and is a bidah. Also regardless of how you feel about Habib, he is a scholar that is followed by some, it would be wise to refrain from writing (la) after his or doing lanat on him.
    Reading your address to me, it's also quite clear to me that you hold Khamanei to a status that might be inappropriate.

    Allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa Ali muhammadin wa ajjil faraja hum
    Rabbinee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqir
    Audhu billahi minash shaytanir rajeem
    دع كل الشتائم ضدي تُعاد سبعة أضعاف.
    Astaghfirillah
    Ya Allah, protectmy sister from further harm and abuse
    Ya as-Sadiq, pray on my behalf, to Al-Haqq that my friend is guided to Islam and healed of herheadaches. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6)
    Ya Khadhim, pray to As-Sabur on my behalf that me and my brother in Islam are rewarded with a wife each and also that he can find the strength and to overcome his sadness. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6)
    Ya Ridha, pray to Al-Wadud on my behalf that shegets peace of mind, verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6)
    Ya Taqi, pray to Al Hakim on my behalf that my burden is lessened and I get the strength to take this deen and the sanctity of my life seriously. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6)
    I ask nothing more than for our happiness and wellbeing.

    I rather trust the Qur'an over fallible scholars and not put them on a pedestal or exaggerate their status, also yes there are numerous hadiths of the Ahlul Bayt openly cursing the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I don't believe in unity by compromising our teachings. Decrying over Sheikh Yasser over cursing Aisha, Umar, Abu Bakr and cursing and bashing him yourself makes you a hypocrite with self righteousness issues.

    That is partially true, do we have control over people? No, we do not control but ourselves. Also eastern culture is just as frivolous and perverse as western culture, technically speaking we should be following Islamic culture.
     
    What do you mean by this? If I were you, I would refrain from strange statements like this.
     
    Have you seen the Salawat thread? Have you participated in Sunni Shia discussions? If one were most of their time in the Off Topic thread, I could see how they might come to the same conclusion as you. This is an unfair  generalization.
    Think about this, ShiaChat has been around since 1998. Surely, they must be doing something right.

    As time goes by on here it is possible that we are getting more posts + more people on here, with less quality posts and less quality people.
    People are forgetting what it means to believe in Shia Islam & Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) because they are following western inclinations and intentions as well as other meaningless speech and empty words.
    Nothing is for the sake of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and nothing is constructive. 
    Ask yourself the last time you made a post or made a comment for the sake of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), for the sake of gaining something special. Not for the sake of fun, games and play as well as vain talk.

    Gaius I. Caesar reacted to EthidiumIodide in Should I end my engagement?   
    We need to unpack what you have said.
    1. You say he has a good heart and a good personality. He is really nice and kind.
    2. You say you love him. 
    3. He does not have money or a job and his family is not giving enough jewelry or cake. This seems to be the reason you want to break it off?
    4. You say you are engaged (I assume this means you are Islamically married). If you were to walk away, both you and him would be divorcees. 
    To me, I wonder how this situation was even entered into when there is so much uncertainty. If you love the man, then you should tell him that he needs to provide for you and that you don't want/can't live together on welfare. You need to have tough conversations. If you cannot have those conversations now, you will have those conversations later. I guarantee it.

    Perhaps people are confusing news with commmentary?
    Also, “bias“ is a loaded word. More appropriately, it should he termed “frame of reference”. People will identify with the source whose frame of reference best matches with their values.

    Stay far away from Xinhua, it's the mouthpiece of the Chinese government and the Uyghur Muslims are being oppressed by the Chinese government. I wouldn't trust anything from Xinhua.

    A lot of these "Muslim" countries are in name only, they are all eager to betray their values for a slice of the proverbial pie. Yet the Uyghurs continue  to be oppressed and the Chinese government  has published a Qur'an that has been changed to fit their views and values.

    A re-education camp is not what you think it is, why would a secular government be compelled to re-educate its people? It's just a nice euphemism for concentration camp. Sounds neutral, maybe perhaps innocuous and implying a short term before reintergrated back into society? Nope, once somebody is taken, you're never seeing this person ever again.
    That's well and all but why haven't you addressed this or raised awareness about this subject?  The reason why I haven't is because there's very little information about it lately. It really makes the fact that Iran trades with  China, even more alarming for me.
     
    No, this is very wrong. Shame on you for lecturing us about being silent on the US-Iran situation when you're mum on China or the Afghan people. Also don't lecture people online, it never ends well.

    While you're busy telling us this, I'm wondering about the silence on China changing the Qur'an or throwing the Uyghur Muslims in concentration camps. I haven't seen a peep about this on ShiaChat, why? This affects us too, the brother that redesigned the ShiaChat logo was an Uyghur Shia. What happened to him? The news in China is far, far worse than the US- Iran spat and the silence on it here is deafening.
    Do you realize that most of the black market organs come from China? China does human experimentation on their criminals. It's a crime to espouse a view that threatens the CCP, including religion.
    It doesn't take to much to infer that there's a strong possibility of people being experimented on, having their organs harvested and sold on the black market for being Muslim. Where's the united outrage on that?

    You said the ones who have the highest expectations of Iran are the greatest critics of it and they have 'sick hearts' 
     
    More like pointing out the double standards mode. You're complaining about divisions whilst feeding into it with divisive labelling. 
    Labelling others as having 'sick hearts' is hardly 'brotherly, polite manner' or part of a 'polite and civilised discussion' 
    Such rhetoric feeds hatred and division
