    Convincing someone to get out of an abusive relationship, is not always easy. The person may acknowledge that they are being abused, but until they want to get out (or can even get out in some cases) themselves, it is futile. Abused people can come up with so many excuses to stay, even if they have the ability to leave. My mom for example, said that she didn't want us to grow up without a father, and she thought that one day he would change. Before that, in Iran, she physically could not get a divorce because she knew that if she got a divorce, she would lose custody of my brother and I, because my dad's family had deep connections. These are only my mom's reasons, so there are so many reasons out there.

    I agree that women can be abusive and manipulative also. Any woman who has been physically or psychologically abused by her husband will tell you that this man is much better than all the masculine men. It's sad that men like him are so rare. I am glad he got out of relationship and I hope he finds someone better.

    Men are not beings that are immune to abuse and staying in abusive relationships. Hyper-masculinity in society is the very reason why men who finally admit or seek help for the fact that they are being abused, are made fun of or not taken seriously by some. My uncles are married to women who control every aspect of their life with iron fists, yet they only give hints or mumble about it, because men in society aren't supposed to show vulnerability and weakness. Reversely, my dad was psychologically, financially, verbally, and physically abusive to my mom, until my mom, my brother, and I finally ran away after many, many years of patience. We are all humans, we are all prone to being abused, and staying with the people that abuse us, for whatever reason.

    This guy has been extremely brave. Just because he's been in an abusive relationship and he cries about it doesn't mean that he is less 'manly.' He has more courage than most guys have in their little finger.

    Second answer

    We can answer by details that those narrations whether are not authentic or they have some commentaries that are not in opposite of Quran and main principles.

    Third answer:

    There are abundant similar ahadith in Sunni sources that convey Quran is distorted and changed. So as Sunnis have them and justify them, there could be some ahadith is Shia books in the same way.

    You should show him this thread. We do not accept any hadith that contradicts the Qur'an. That answers it all.
    But, then, if he is really so eager to debate those riwayats anyway, tell him to join ShiaChat. We will be waiting for him.

    many of them claim that from along time, the best evidence that deny these claims is the real experiment, they can enter any shiite mosque and see the quran there, they can see shia prayer in the shia holy shrines live throw satellite channels, and they will be sure that shia have the same quran and read the same verses.

    salamun alaykum

    In this situations we can remark three different kinds of answers:

    First, as a general answer it is possible to express that Shia believe in the same Quran and no one doubt it. Even Sunnis are aware of this fact. On the other hand there are verses that shows Gabriel, for example, never made any mistake:

    Chapter 53, verse5: “taught him by One of great powers”

    Or another verse in chapter 81 that says: “it is indeed the speech of a noble apostle (19), powerful and eminent with the Lord of the Throne, (20)”

    Here in these verses you can obviously notice that “one of great powers” and “powerful and eminent” refer to Gabriel and Shia commentaries mentioned that.

    So how can we believe that Gabriel made a mistake of delivering the Quran or giving prophethood while Quran considers him infallible?!! If they think a little about this, they will understand that having these verses, it is impossible to state that Gabriel made mistake.

    This answer is a general answer to all questions that say we have some contradictory narrations. We also believe that any narration in opposite of Quran is false even if it is in our book.

    He was saying false things such as how shias believe that the last 10 chapters of the Quran is hidden. And that Gabriel made a mistake by giving Prophethood to Prophet Mohammad (saw) and had inteded to give it to Imam Ali.
    He also brought some random haddiths to "prove" that we believe that stuff, even after I told him that we don't believe any haddith book is 100% reliable.
    I wanted to see what other shias had to say since I don't know haddiths that we consider reliable to counter him.
    He said: 
    " Allaah often lies and does mistakes. (usool-e-kaafi, page #328, yaqoob kulaini, vol1).

    The Munafiqeen (i.e. Sahaba) took very much out of Quran (took out the verses). (Ihtijaj-e-tibri, page #382).

    When Imaam Mehdi comes he will bring with him the real and original Quran. (Ahsan-ul-maqaal, page #336, safdar Husain najfi).

    The person who says that the present Quran is complete is a liar because the “complete Quran” was compiled by Hazrat Ali. (Fasl-ul-khitaab fee tahreef kitaab rab-ul- arbab, page #4, Noori Tibri).
    Imam Jafar (as) said: “The Quran that Gibrael (as) brought to Muhammad (saw) had 17,000 verses"

    Lilly14 got a reaction from Skanderbeg in A Christian interested in Islam asked me why Prophet Mohammad is the most important Prophet?   
    I am aware that the devoted followers of the previous Prophets didn’t mean they were less devoted to Allah or the Prophet of their time than the followers of Prophet Mohammad (SAW). And btw I had never spoke to this particular person before, so I had said nothing about the Prophet (SAW) to make him ask me those questions. He practically opened the conversation with those questions himself. 
     
    That's exactly why I asked the original question, I didn't want to say "simply because he is the last Prophet". But as for virtues, if I'm not mistaken, I think that's important to mention because the Prophet (SAW) had the best virtues of all of humanity.

    Someone I know is seriously interesting in becoming a muslim, as in they're doing the research, they are reading the quran, and they believe Islam is the right path etc. but of course there is so much more to learn, but I have no idea where I can find resources or guides that are in English for this person. Like information on the Ahlul bayt, islamic lifestyle, and other things etc. 
    That being said, I'm aware that you should not share an overwhelming amount of information with potential converts. So, if you have any suggestions on how to interact with someone who is seriously thinking about becoming a muslim, please let me know.

    He asked me:
    "What makes Muhammad more important messenger than Adam who was created before him? Or the other true prophets before him ?"
    "Why dont the other prophets receive equal in the seven heavens?"
