    Japan has an aging population, addiction to work, high suicide rates, pornography, child abuse, etc. so Islam would bring benefit.

    Ok. By reading the comment of Ibn Sina, it seems that Japan has some cultural and religious issues. Secondly, I searched about Shinzo Abe (President) that what sort of relations do Japan has with Israel. Because according to my speculation, today if anyone is against Israel, they are most likely to be dealing with the internal and external terrorism. It seems like Shinzo and Israel has good relations and this speaks for the Japan's peacefulness.
    Islam teaches us to be peaceful but with dignity. It is easy to shake hands with power to remain in peacefulness but very very difficult esp today to live while resisting the bad guys.

    What is your definition of good? It may vary upon person to person. I don't have enough knowledge about the insights of Japan but what you defined as Islam isn't what Islam looks forward for in the humans or in the society.
    Islam is to practice religion fulfilling the rights of Allah and the human beings. By practicing those things, you could achieve salvation here and hereafter. No one is perfect and Islam leads the humanity and races to perfection. If for suppose Japan consider himself as the peaceful country but due to their atheism, they are not fulfilling the rights of the God.
    Islam isn't only to get salvation in this world only, it is about travelling in Islam following Allah and his principles to get superiority and perfectness both in this world and here after.

    Actually, Christianity came to japan long long time ago(time is relevant), year 1549 with Portuguese missionaries.
    Second of all, there has and is racism in japan as well, especially against black people, most asians dislike them or colored people for that matter. You see how they protect themselves from getting a tan? They love white people though, especially the thai women. Anyways Japan has, historically speaking been very very racist towards Chinese people.
    Anyways, regarding Japan, they have some really unhealthy and sick aspects of their culture, such as alcohol consumption, the view they have on their work/job. In some instances they are very very formal and strict in others they go completely bonkers, have you seen the Japanese game shows?
    One obvious thing that I can think of that the Japanese would benefit from if they became muslims were the importance of marriage. Today the youth of japan dont get married, its all work work work. They even have a word of suicide caused by work, go figure.
    The japanese people are getting extinct because they are not having children, there are a lot of elderly people and not so many young people. They are dying more than they are breeding.
    Anyways, that is one of the many problems islam would help them with in my opinion. Also the alcohol consumption, japanese people are known for their "after works" with their karaoke and whatnot, they love karaoke.
    Have you been to japan before? Maybe more than as a tourist for a week? If not I would suggest you go and see for yourself.

    Ali Hamieh reacted to Engineer73 in How does Shia view ex shia who convert to sunni ?   
    Allah has given us the freewill, in very rare cases, some shia do convert to sunni. That doesn't make them a "MURTID", so there is no punishment as far as the fiqh is concern.

    How we view them? We view them as Sunni.

    "And it is not for a soul to believe except by Allah's permission, and He casts uncleanness on those who will not understand." (10:100)

    What can one feel if he saw his fellow leaving the totality of faith (Kull-e-emaan i.e., Imam Ali)?
    What can one feel if he saw his fellow quitting the cleanness?

    "Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O (people of the house) ahlul-bait, and purify you a (thorough) purifying." (33:33)

    The main difference between a common shia & common sunni is the level of knowledge. Shia posses very basic knowledge of their religion, their school of thought. They know that QURAN & Ahahdith of Prophet supports their school of thought. Sunni's on the other hand don't know too much about their religion & school of thought. That's why most of the time (99.999%) you will see Sunni conversion into Shia while in very rare cases (0.001%) you will see Shia conversion to Sunni school of thought.

    Islam is a religion of soul searching and brainstorming. If we are following the footsteps of our forefathers without trying to get the truth what is difference between us and others who don't follow Allah and His messengers. Adamant nature and fanaticism are not teachings of Islam. 
    Kindly read the sermons and sayings of Hazrat Ali (as) during and after the war of Jamal and Naharwan. you will get answers of all your questions.

    Ali Hamieh reacted to Qa'im in Are u allowed to shave beard and have girlfriend   
    Marriage is very easy in Islam.
    All that is technically required is a contract (oral or written), a recitation of the marriage formula (seegha), a dower (mahr - could be as little or as much as the woman wants, like a gift, a skill, food, money, jewelry, etc.), and applicable permissions.
    If the woman has never been married before, or if the woman has never consummated a marriage before, then you need the permission of her Muslim father to marry her.
    If her father is not alive, then seek her Muslim grandfather's permission.
    According to some scholars, if the girl is mature and fully independent (does not depend on her father/grandfather economically, religiously, and for consultation), then only her own permission is needed and not anyone else's
    If the woman is a virgin, or if she has never married before, and she has no Muslim father or Muslim grandfather, then her permission is enough.
    If the girl is divorced or widowed, and she had consummated her previous [lawful] marriage, then her father/grandfather's permission is not needed either.
    The woman must identify as either a Muslim, Christian, or Jew. If her parents and grandparents are non-Muslim, then you do not need their permission. If the woman does not identify as a Muslim, Christian, or Jew, then you cannot marry her.
    Likewise, if she is married to another man, then you also cannot marry her.
    It is recommended, but not obligatory, to have two Muslim adult male witnesses to the marriage.
    Marriage can be permanent or temporary. A permanent marriage has no time limit. A temporary marriage (mut`a) has a time limit set in the contract, and the woman can renew it with you when the time expires. A permanent wife must inherit from her husband if the husband dies, but a temporary wife does not inherit. A temporary wife can also travel and deny sex without giving a reason or seeking permission.
    You are economically responsible for any children that are born out of your relationship. She is not obligated to do any housework for you. If she is without food or shelter, you must feed and shelter her - this is your Islamic duty.
    If the woman lives in your house, then do not permit her to bring alcohol (wine, beer, liquor, etc.) or pork into the house.

    Ali Hamieh reacted to narsis in Why Are Dogs Najis?   
    Bismillah.
     
    Salaam.
     
    This point is necessary to be noted, that it is one of the fundamental teachings of Islam that legal rulings are based on the real benefits and harms behind them. If there were no benefits or harms, there would be no commands nor prohibitions, and no ruling regarding the najasah and taharah of things in religion. [1]
     
    So whenever we see that the Lawmaker, the exalted, has made something wajib, we can conclude with certainty that there is a benefit in it for us that we are in need of securing, although we may not know what it is exactly.
     
    If the Lawmaker, the exalted, prohibits something and announces it to be najis, we can be sure that there is a harm and disadvantage in it that we must avoid. Nevertheless, because of the development of science, some of these benefits and harms have been discovered, as is the case with some of the reasons behind the najasah of the dog. Today, it is asserted that dog stool contains very tiny tapeworms ranging from two to seven millimeters in length by the name of “taenia echinococcus”. When dogs defecate, a large number of eggs of this worm‌ are expelled also, and many stick around the anus. Using its tongue when cleaning itself, the dog spreads this worm all over its body, parasitizing everything. If one of these tapeworms makes its way into a human’s intestine, it can disastrously be the cause of a great deal of diseases that can sometimes even be fatal. [2]
     
    This is one of the reasons why Islam has announced the dog to be a najis al-ayn (a najis thing in and of itself) in order to block the harms that can be entailed. Nonetheless, there might be other reasons as well, such as hygienic, environmental or medical ones that are yet to be discovered.
     
    The legal evidence for the najasah of the dog:
     
    The najasah of the dog is a legal issue. In the Quran, nothing has been said regarding the najasah of the dog and pig. But, it is totally wrong to think that all legal rulings have been and must be specifically addressed in the Quran. The Quran has kept it at the general fundamentals when it comes to legal rulings, leaving their expansion and interpretation to the prophet (pbuh), and after him, to the infallible imams (as). For example, when we look at the rulings of prayer, we see that there are many detailed rulings, while the Quran has only mentioned a few of them. As for the legal evidence for the najasah of the dog:
     
    1- Consensus: The great Islamic jurists all agree that the dog is a najis thing; this ruling is consensual among them. [3]
     
    2- Hadiths: The consensus mentioned above, is a result of the many hadiths cited in hadith sources. Of course, regarding the najasah of the dog, the hadiths that have reached us can be divided into two categories; ones that contain the term ‘najis’ in them and others that don’t have the exact term but nonetheless necessitate their najasah. In these hadiths, the najasah of the dog can be concluded judging from the questions that the imams have been asked regarding the leftovers of a dog and the corresponding answers they have given; here are some examples:
     
    a.) Imam Sadiq (a.s.) was asked about the dog. The imam answered: “It is najis. Throw away the leftover [water] of the dog and don’t perform wudu with it. First rub the container of the water with soil and then wash it with water.”
     
    b.) Ibn Shurayh asked Imam Sadiq (a.s.) about the leftover of the dog, and the imam replied: “No, by Allah, it is najis.” [4]
     
    c) Abi Suhayl asked Imam Sadiq (a.s.) about the dog, and his eminence repeated three times: “The dog is najis.” [5]

    Salam Everyone!
    Something just happened that made my hubby and me laugh and remember our childhoods.
    There's a storm coming, and automatically I unplugged my computer's charger. Then I asked my hubby (who is watching a Youtube about why some animals are unclean to eat) if he wanted to read. He asked me why with an amused smile on his face. I didn't register it till he asked, that I sound like my Mom!
    In both our childhoods, our parents made us turn off the computers and unplug them when a storm was coming. My awesome Mom would tell my sisters and me to go read. That's why I asked my darling hubby if he wanted to read, and I didn't even realize it till he asked why lol!
    Has that ever happened to you, that you find yourself following what your Mom or Dad told you when you were a kid? Now we have protection so we can still be on the computers when a storm is coming, but it is interesting how I automatically followed what my parents instructed so long ago. 
    (Yes, I really miss my parents. I am hoping to see them this December if God wills.) My hubby really misses his Mom. (She died of cancer years before I met her wonderful son; I wish I could have met her but someday I will see her in Heaven!!!)  We are hoping his Dad will come to visit soon!
    My hubby is like his Dad and is a perfectionist like his Dad is, but he also does many things like his Mom too, such as cleaning up after himself. He used to always clean up his messes so he didn't make more work for his Mom. <3
    I'm like my Dad in that I love to talk about the Bible and asking/answering questions. I'm like my Mom in that I enjoy gardening and doing art projects, like she does.
    I caught myself today telling kids at a back to school party "Hold your horses" lol which is a saying both my parents say all the time. I had to explain it the saying to one of the kids, who is from Portugal and didn't understand it means to be patient. 
    Anyways, to those of you who live by or with your parents, please enjoy them!!! I really wish my hubby and I lived near my parents! However, my hubby has no desire to move to where they live lol.
    Anyways, please share what you do that reminds you of your Mom or Dad or both.
    Peace and God bless you!

    If you're anxious then surely you have questions that you can't or don't know how to answer, try and learn more about the topics that are causing anxiety within you & look at scientific proofs in Islam through the links of brother @sefket83 before that.
    Enforcing the mindset of "I know it's true but I want to know more" is better than "I don't have any proof if Islam is actually the truth". Read hadiths but if you're lazy like me then read SC topics that you can learn from and watch lectures through Youtube, I suggest that you watch Sayyed Ammar Nakshawani if you like English lectures. 
    Ofcourse waswasa isn't always reasonable so your best solution can also be to simply ignore it as brother @gerashi_mp suggested.

    One way of shaytan's trap is waswas. You may find someone so pious but he has alot of waswas, alot of (what ifs), it is an illness. The only cure for it is ignoring it. Don't pay attention to them since they are from Shaytan. they are just thoughts, doesn't mean you believe in them. Plus, there are tons of books that you can educate yourself about when it comes to a doubt that you don't have an answer for. 
    One time Shaytan tells you to do haram, other times he provokes you to be angry, other times provokes arrogance and pride in you, other times makes you do waswas.
    Don't worry, just know they are all from Shaytan, because waswas is a strong tool that Shaytan uses that on the long run can make you sick of religion.
    One time there was a person that used to be so waswas about her prayer, so waswas about it, that eventually she stopped praying once and for all and she was like wow such a relief. You see what shaytan has done to her?? He made her to do alot of waswas that eventually she stopped praying.
    So don't pay attention to the waswas, because it is Shaytan's trap to make you sick of religion and stop practicing Islam. 
    You see the damage that waswas can do? so the cure is a simple word, Just Ignore them. practice this daily and you will feel good Inshallah trust me.
