  1. Unlike to the propagation of Western media, Islam freed women from those circumstances, which existed for them during the age of ignorance of pre-Islamic times and wants men and women to develop. You can’t imagine what circumstances were like for women during pre-Islamic times and to what degree their situation improved with the advent of Islam. Islam did a service for women, which has no precedent in history. Islam raised women up out of that slough and gave her back her identity. Islam took women by the hand and made them equal with men, whereas before the Prophet came, women had no standing. Islam gave women strength. Islam holds women in higher esteem than it does men. Islam wants to save women; it wants to save women from becoming this plaything they want to turn women into. Islam wants to train women to become a perfect human being. During the time of ignorance, women were oppressed; they were treated like animals, even worse than animals. Then Islam came and bestowed its blessings on mankind, it dragged women out of that state of oppression, [and] it pulled her from that slough of ignorance Islam put women on a par with men, and made them equal with men. Of course, there are certain Islamic precepts, which apply only to men, and others which apply only to women, but this doesn’t mean that Islam discriminates between men and women. https://www.al-islam.org/position-women-viewpoint-imam-khomeini-ra/status-and-rights-women-islamic-system#women%E2%80%99s-rights-islam
  2. Islam wants men and women to develop. Islam freed women from those circumstances, which existed for them during the age of ignorance of pre-Islamic times. Islam always considers the status and esteem of women. Islam doesn’t oppose to women’s sports as long as women take part in sports and practice without exposing their body. But in the international sense, the Muslim women are forced to perform in front of strange men, while it is forbidden in Islam. Also, Islam opposes the mixing of men and women in sports, because it causes corruption. Otherwise, Islam not only doesn’t oppose it, but also encourages men and women to take part in sports. Of course, due to differences of women in the creation, they should choose appropriate sports.
  3. Imam Khomeini believes that Sunni and Shia are brothers and equal. He says the Muslims shouldn’t not let others separate among themselves. He believes that in Islam things like race, language, nationality and geography are not topical issues, Muslims, whether Sunni or Shiite are brothers and therefore, equals and all enjoy all of the Islamic privileges and rights. He emphasizes on the unity of Muslims and says Muslims have to preserve their unity against the enemies of Islam. He says Sunni and Shia should be awake and be alert that if a dispute takes place among Sunni and Shia brothers, it is harmful to all of Muslim, it is harmful to all Muslims. So those who want to separate among Muslim, are neither Sunni nor Shia, they are agents of the superpowers and work for them. He says Sunni are Muslims like Shia and they have many similarities like the Quran, the Prophet and so on. https://www.al-islam.org/articles/imam-khomeini-on-islamic-unity-imam-khomeini
  4. Surah 'At-Tauba' Starts Without 'Bismillah'. Interpreters believe that because Surah Baraat as is apparent from the following, is for the warning of polytheists and the breaker of covenant and its aim was to warn those people who were trying to destroy the light of the belief in Oneness of Allah, moral and social reformation in the Arabian Gulf thus it was not suitable that its beginning should be with Bismillah because this sentence is the sign of mercy, peace and friendship. https://www.al-islam.org/philosophy-islamic-laws-nasir-makarim-shirazi-jafar-subhani/question-57-why-there-no-bismillah
  5. Shia point of view about the companions is very logical and natural. It is according to Quran and hadith. Shia says neither all the companions were righteous nor all companions were bad. There were so many pious and righteous personalities among the companions of the holy Prophet but not all and only loving the faithful companions of the Prophet surely is the symbol of faith. Among those personalities are very prominent names. According to the general definition of companion they were those who accepted Islam and met the Prophet (pbuh). If we will study Quran carefully we will find out that there are three groups among those companions. Faithful companions, Companions who accepted Islam but still Islam was not deeply penetrated in to their hearts and People who called themselves as companions of the Prophet but actually they were hypocrites. So it is easy to understand who were among the companions belong to the third category. Our Sunni brothers mixed up all of them, claiming that all of the sahaba are righteous. So this formula "follow any companion and you will be guided" will never work. You never know maybe the companion you are following is actually himself a hypocrite. Our Sunni brothers try to impose to everyone the theory that all companions are righteous which is clearly contradicting with holy Quran. Shia believe that being a companion is not a divine designation and believing a companion or not believing in a companion does not make somebody a Muslim or a Kafir. Of course we don’t appreciate using bad words publicly for the companions.
  6. Even thought, nothing in the Quran, strictly bars portrayals of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), but according to the view of some Shia scholars, If due deference and respect is observed, and the scene does not contain anything that would detract from their holy pictures in the minds [of the viewers], there is no problem.
  7. Here we have to distinguish between knowledge and science. Science is a tool of observation, experimentation and analyzing which now is used in human sciences like sociology, political science and so on. But there are many things that can’t be measured by science like the existence of God, wisdom and so on. So Science is the study of the physical and natural world, but Allah isn’t limited to physical world. For knowing the existence of Allah or non-existence, the attributes of Allah and so on we need other ways like intellect, narrations, revelation, Sayings of infallible Imams and so on which is called knowledge.
  8. Islam has introduced hijab as part of the decency and modesty in interaction between members of the opposite sex. Verse 59 of chapter 33 quoted previously gives a very good reason; it says, “This is more appropriate so that they may be known [as Muslim women] and thus not be harassed [or molested].” Men, whether they confess it or not, are slaves of lust and desire. • Hijab protects women from such men; it symbolizes that she has been sanctified to one man only and is off-limit to all others. • Hijab contributes to the stability and preservation of marriage and family by eliminating the chances of extramarital affairs. • Finally, it compels men to focus on the real personality of the woman and de-emphasizes her physical beauty. It puts the woman in control of strangers’ reaction to her.
  9. His proceedings against the innocent people in Syria in undeniable and he will be punished by the Allah. As he faced with many problems and difficulties in his government and now his country faced with terror attacks. Although he is supported by the western countries, but eventually Allah will punished him.
  10. The significance is purely spiritual. It is the day when the Muslims thank Allah for having given them the will, the strength and the endurance to observe fast and obey His commandment during the holy month of Ramadhan. This day, in Muslim world, brings rejoicing and happiness. The rejoicing is not, however, at the departure of the month of Ramadhan; it is the happiness which man feels after successfully completing an important task. So far as the passing away of the month of Ramadhan is concerned, Muslim religious leaders of the early days of Islam always felt profound sorrow when it came to an end, as they felt that they were being deprived of the spiritual blessings which were associated with the month of fasting. To show the original Islamic feeling at the end of Ramadhan, I am quoting some of the sentences from an invocation by Imam Zainul-Abedeen. He says:- "O Lord, Thou hast ordained Ramadhan to be one of the most chosen .. .. ; and Thou hast distinguished it from all other months, and chosen it out of all other seasons and periods; and given it preference to all the times of the year, by having sent the Qur'an and the light of guidance in it, and by having increased the faith, and by having enjoined the observance of fast in it, and by encouraging us to stand up for prayer at night, and by placing in it the glorious 'Night of Qadr' which is better than a thousand months. "Therefore, in accordance with Thy command, we kept fast in its days, and with Thy help, we stood up for prayers in its nights; presenting ourselves, by means of its fasts and prayers, for Thy Mercy which Thou dist offer to us. "And, verily, this month of Ramadhan stayed amongst us a welcome stay; and gave us a righteous company; bestowing upon us the most excellent benefits in the universe. Now, it departs from us at the completion of its time. "Therefore, we bid it farewell as we did good-bye to one whose departure is hard upon us and makes us sad; and whose parting away makes us feel lonely."
  11. as i said it can be a religious freedom, but you can't protest against your social condition. Maybe you can easily go to Mosque, but it is undeniable that Muslims in western countries are discriminated and accused of being terrorist. So this is the result of American policy toward Muslims.
  12. where do you live? every country differs from the another one and observation of the moon differs too.
  13. Inshalla Allah has forgiven all our sins and will grant us the opportunity of being a good servant for him. don't lose the remained time of Ramadan and pray for All Muslims and me too.
  14. It doesn't have problem to ask. maybe you have heard that one Shia Muslim forbids a Haram act, but it doesn't mean that it is our beliefs. of course it is the result of propaganda against Shia which causes that someone like you be unaware of real beliefs of Shia. we aren't offended as long as it isn't insulting.
  15. This is the Allah rule that women aren't allowed to not wear Hijab. Even if it is profitable, again you aren't allowed to do it. As one of our brother mentioned, in our life style, the profit isn't the main factor and sometimes we have to neglect this factor. In contrast, Allah will grant more to you Inshallah.
