    Skanderbeg got a reaction from The Straight Path in Doing Ijtihad   
    Not according to me but according to your sources, my sources and historical accounts.

     

    - Asking for something on false grounds: Who refused Fatima a.s. to give her inheritance to her and was it her right to ask her inheritance?

    - Participating in an ungodly process: Who made this proces ungodly? Why was it ungodly? Was it ungodly in itself or because of the conditions that were made?

    - Handing over leadership over to an unfit person: Who was unfit? And whose fault was it that he was unfit?


    The Ahl Al-Bayt a.s. just did what they had to do and they are not responsible for the deeds of the perpetrators.

    Ayatollah Khameini is a good man. I love him. 

    I don't see him as my religious leader but as a political leader I could swear allegiance to him under certain circumstances yes.

    There are even Sunnites who accept him as their leader.

    Assalaamualeykum,
    Please read this hadeeth, it answers your question
     
    3960 - 4 - علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، ومحمد بن إسماعيل، عن الفضل بن شاذان جميعا، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن حريز، عن زرارة قال: قلت لابي جعفر (ع): ألا تخبرني من أين علمت وقلت: إن المسح ببعض الرأس وبعض الرجلين؟ فضحك ثم قال: يازرارة قال: رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) ونزل به الكتاب من الله لان الله عزوجل يقول: " فاغسلوا وجوهكم " فعرفنا أن الوجه كله ينبغي أن يغسل ثم قال: " وأيديكم إلى المرافق " ثم فصل بين الكلام (1) فقال: " وامسحوا برؤسكم " فعرفنا حين قال: " برؤسكم " أن المسح ببعض الرأس لمكان الباء، ثم وصل الرجلين بالرأس كما وصل اليدين بالوجه: فقال:" وأرجلكم إلى الكعبين " فعرفنا حين وصلها بالرأس أن المسح على بعضها ثم فسر ذلك رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) للناس فضيعوه ثم قال: " فلم تجدوا ماء فتيمموا صعيدا طيبا فامسحوا بوجوهكم وأيديكم منه " فلما وضع الوضوء إن لم تجدوا الماء أثبت بعض الغسل مسحا لانه قال: " بوجوهكم " ثم وصل بها " وأيديكم " ثم قال: " منه " أي من ذلك التيمم لانه علم أن ذلك أجمع لم يجر على الوجه لانه يعلق من ذلك الصعيد ببعض الكف ولا يعلق ببعضها، ثم قال: " ما يريد الله ليجعل عليكم (في الدين) من حرج " والحرج الضيق.
    From Zurarah that he said, "I said to Abu Ja'far (a.s.), 'From where did you know and say that wiping should be done to a part of head and a part of feet.' He (the Imam) laughed and said, 'O Zurarah! The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) has said so and the Book has been revealed by Allah with this order, because Allah, the Mighty, the Great, says: wash your faces, so we know that the whole face should be washed. Then He says: and your hands as far as the elbows; in this way, the hands up to the elbows have been joined with face (in one order) and we know that they too should be washed up to the elbows. Then He disjointed the speech and said: and wipe a part of your heads; when He used the preposition "bi" before "your heads", we understood that wiping should cover only a part of the head. Then He joined the feet with the head (in that order) as had joined the hands with the face, and said: and your feet to the ankles. Now, because He has joined them with the head, we know that wiping should cover only a part of the feet. Then the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) explained it to the people but they neglected it. Then (Allah) said: and (if) you do not find water, betake yourselves to clean earth and wipe a part of your faces and (part of) your hands therewith. When wudu' was waived in the absence of water, wiping (with earth) was ordered for part of (the organs) which were washed (in wudu') because He has said: part of your faces, then has joined with it the hands (that is, parts of it). Then He has said: therewith, that is, in tayammum. It was so ordained because Allah knew that the wiping with earth would not cover the whole face as the earth adheres to parts of the palms leaving other portions untouched. Then Allah said: Allah does not desire to put on you any difficulty; and al-haraj means difficulty.'"

    I am surrounded by modestly dressed beautiful women in my family and I know guys still can't help themselves. I just bring it to their attention in an unexpected way.  It saves me the confrontation and negative vibes while addressing the issue. I think it helps that I could care less what people think of me. If you think I am dumb because I misunderstood, then you have something else to think about while I smile/stare at you. if you think I'm crazy, go ahead, it's time to find another seat.

    I'm the guy who says "Hi" at the first sign. Yes, it puts people off their game when you speak to them. Got to remember that everyone is different, maybe your fly was down. Maybe he didn't see anything else to look at. Maybe he saw something in your life he can't have. If you gave opportunity you might have found out what his trouble was. 
    A cold stare doesn't do anything to someone who also has a cold stare. If he was watching you while you were eating you could always ask if he was hungry. If he says yes, it gives opportunity for a good deed. If he says no then you could say you misunderstood his staring. That leaves him to explain. Chances are he stops talking and looks at the floor. 
    If he looked at your shirt, ask if he likes it and tell him where you got it. If he doesn't respond positively to that then say you misunderstood his staring. If he's looking at your wife, then tell him where she shops... Oh, sorry, I misunderstood your staring...
    It doesn't much matter what you ask him as long as you misunderstood his staring.
    Yeah, we all know what he was staring at. If you have a beautiful wife and family, expect it.

    Mosques nowadays are too much culturally divided.

    The language of the country of residence itself should be the first language however.

    That's the first step because when I visit a Turkish mosque in Germany for examle and being a converted german then in what way will the visit benefit me except for praying in the mosque?

    Assalam aleikum,
    I completely agree with you, all too often in the Muslim community people have mixed culture in with religion and it is so sad. For example, I have watched videos on You Tube of black men and women accepting Islam and being discriminated against in the mosque. For example, one man went to a mosque and the caretaker kept calling him Bilal when he clearly said his name was Hussain. Astafiruallah! It makes me wonder if some Muslims know anything about our Prophet (sawa) at all.
    And in a similiar way, I was discriminated at certain mosques because I was English and a woman and that really hit me hard. But al hamdulilah, not all Muslims are like that. There are plenty of mosques who are welcoming to everyone whether they only have South Asian people attending or a mix of cultures. 2 weeks ago for example I went to my new mosque and I was the only English person there but al hamdulilah every sister was so lovely and made me feel so welcome.
    So don't let it get you down. Its definitely a problem that the community needs to address but thankfully there are plenty of Muslims who follow the Sunnah.

    My apologies if this has been covered before, but I'm looking for some perspective.
    I'm a revert. Standard white American dude with limited experience regarding attitudes between different Arab and Asian cultures in my new home. Just from the outside looking in, it seems that tribalism is alive and well.
    One of the things that drew me to Islam initially was the ideas of social justice and ethnic equality. The abolishment of racism and all that. So it was a bit shocking to hear that a Muslim's parents would disown their child if they brought someone that wasn't from their "group" (ethnic origin, nationality, even down to the village, etc) as consideration for a potential spouse, or reject the suitor because of that difference.
    I'm not saying that it's a rare thing in the world, or in America. It just kind of put me in a funk, considering how often I hear Muslims talk about racism and discrimination.
    From the members here, I would assume your own individual experiences vary depending on your location and your family, but I'll ask anyway. How often do you see culture eclipse religion in domestic matters?

    Salam, 

    First of all I'm not Rambo. I'm kinda tall but not a muscleman neither a skinnyboy and I don't like to fight.

    But when I'm with my family (wife and kids) in a waiting room at a bus station and I get something to eat and come back seeing a dude (morrocan or arab)  sitting not far from my wife and I am going to sit between them (he was making room for me) and after that he keeps on staring all the time at my wife, me and my kids ..

    Then is it an abnormal reaction that you're becoming Abu Jihad, upset and then to ask the dude : What you're looking at man?!

    Or was it better to just keep silent?

    How should a real Shi'a respond and deal with such situations?

    Skanderbeg reacted to guest050817 in Imam Mahdi a.s is probably mostly black by race   
    The mother of the sevent imam was an african slave. The seventh imam himself married an african slave himself, making the 8th imam 3/4 african and 1/4 arab.
    There is also a Saheeh hadith that the 11th imam married a black bondswoman, making the 12th imam a.s highly african in genetics.
    There may be many reasons you aren't told this. One is ignorance. Another could be a different intepretation. Another, the most sickening one, is closet racism.

    Skanderbeg reacted to guest050817 in Imam Mahdi a.s is probably mostly black by race   
    If the blessed Imam did have a morrocan mother, this applies to the 10th Imam a.s's wife. However we know that the other imams a.s mothers were african slaves:
    According to Shia-Chat Admin, Brother Q'aim, who runs 'Ahlulbayt Daily' on facebook, has authored several interesting articles on christianity and Islam, and has translated a rich corpus of hadith on immamiyah, states:
    "It is generally known that Ja'far as-Sadiq (as), the sixth Imam, was secondarily married to an African slave woman he had freed. The woman later gave birth to the seventh Imam, Musa al-Kadhim (as), making him half African. Al-Kadhim (as) also married an African slave, making his offspring three quarters African."
    Source: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/234977499-where-any-of-the-12-imams-as-mothers-black/
    So even before we get to the 10th imam marrying a morocan woman, there is a high chance two noble black women were the mothers of two Imams a.s.before this.
    The 12th Imams a.s's mother was a black lady.
    So taking this all into account, genetically speaking , he is probably mostly african, highly likely mostly black-african by genetics.
    He can still resemble the prophet s.a.w ofcourse. My mother and father - neither are black- but are different races, and i look like my grand father. My brother looks nothing like my grandfather. So it is possible to have a mix of races, and retain certian features, but i can not speculate.
    Imam Hasan a.s looked a lot like rasullah s.a.w. His grandson could also have resembled the prophet s.a.w a lot. And his Grandson after that, even if there was intermingling of races. But alahu'alam. I can't speculate.
    All i have to say is, there is far more evidence to say he is genetically mostly black.
