  1. I don't think I understand. Are the Shia being targeted? And, if so, for what reason?
  2. To all of you who suggest that I not tell my parents: Thanks for your advice, but may I ask how I am to be a good Muslim without their knowledge? I'm not sure of all the Muslim rules on eating and dress, but my family's main entree at every meal contains pork, and my mom would get suspicious if I wore a hijab to school. Suggestions?
  3. I'm not sure whether this belongs in the family issues or not, but I'll start with posting it here. I'm a minor that's part of a Christian family in a Christian town, and the nearest mosque is an hour away in the big city. The closest Shia mosque is two hours away. My mom has been wondering why I'm learning about Islam, and I just say that I'm learning, because I am, but she keeps asking if I'm going to convert. I avoid answering, but I know in my heart that I want to, need to let the world know that I worship Allah, the one and only. But I'm not one to argue with my mom, and she tells me how Islam is a male dominated religion. I know that it's not, but how do I explain that? I'm not good at defending my side of the argument, but if I'm to maintain my family's trust, I must have a good defense of this religion that's based in facts, not just my or another's opinion. Thank you for your support throughout the couple of days I've been here.
  4. Sakriya! Thank you to you all. I feel I have a much better understanding of the Hadith now, and I'm glad I asked. I hope that all my future questions are answered as quickly and completely as this one. Thank you again, very much.
  5. As one looking to understand more about this religion before I join it, I was wondering what importance the hadeeths are to the Islamic world? Are they like the parables in the Bible or more like a biography of Muhammed's life? Written by one or many? Completely reliable or iffy in some places? I know that some of these questions might be stupid, but I'm not sure which are, so please, feel free to inform me. Thanks.
  6. My name is Carol, and I belong to a Christian family. I've always disliked the way the Christians taught about God, and became an Atheist about a year and a half ago. But I've always been drawn to Islam, and my lover has given me the little push I needed to start learning about it. He can't answer all my questions, as we live half a world apart right now, so I'm looking for others who can teach me what I need to know before officially becoming Muslim. I can learn most things by myself, but I need some suggestions on what to research and learn about before making my decision. Thanks in advance.
