  1. Schoolboys who think they are an Ayatollah, even though they've only been Muslim for about 5 minutes, are really the ones that need to grow up, especially if they are disciples of someone like Big Mac.
  2. Wholeheartedly agree. Unfortunately there really is no befitting manner of punishment in Britain today.
  3. Well then, you've obviously visited the many Iranian Mutah Masjids? Or perhaps you're a Convert who can't find a wife, so is continuing your Western lifestyle? Anyway, in your highly knowledgeable opinion, what percentage of Twelvers have practiced Mutah? Take a guess and break it down in to males and females, young and old. If, like you imaginatively say, it is widely practiced, then why does it remain so taboo, and why do most people find it so difficult to find - like you know, the brother who started this very thread? I hope you've helped the poor guy out and hooked him up, because apparently there's massive Mutah party going on out there, Hoo Boy! Looking at your post count of over Ten Thousand - it's pretty clear which one of us doesn't get out much, don't you think stud?
  4. The British public won't take much more of this horrific sickness - a storm is brewing...
  5. All the other Shia sects do not accept Mutah, it's purely a Twelver thing my friend.I said it is taboo, not Haraam - even though your sect considers Mutah Halal, it is still very much looked down upon in your community and rarely practiced. Ask your mother if she had any Mutah relationships in the past and take note of her reaction. There are many valid arguments in support of Mutah and there are many valid arguments against Mutah. You are a Twelver so should follow your Ayatollahs opinion and not think for yourself on this issue. What other people do is not my concern so by all means go get some Mutah action brother! Although I would recommend you go down the "Mutah Engagement" path leading to marriage, instead of the "Mutah Girlfriend" path leading to Westernisation. Getting to know each other basically means talking to each other - do you need a temporary marriage just to speak to a girl now? None of the other Shia communities preach about Mutah, atleast not the Bohra's, Nizari's and Zaydi's.Which sect were you thinking of Big Mac? The one you've recently switched to?
  6. No insult was intended my friend. Converts are great people, many of them make better Muslims than those of us born in to Islam! They are often more sincere and devout in their faith as they've made the conscious effort to choose it, so don't take it for granted like the rest of us. Watching new Converts pray Namaaz is quite beautiful, they are completely focussed on their duty at hand while everyone else is chatting and rushing through the Rakats and checking their phones every other minute. At the same time though, some Converts make the worst Muslims as they become too engrossed with dogma and lose sight of the spirituality of Islam. It's common for them to be like lost sheep looking for a shepherd, wondering from one faith to another as they focus so much on the external meanings and never grasp the deeper inner meanings. They see religion not as something that calls from within which has a very human character, but as some kind of technical "software" which they can upload in to their lives like a machine. Unfortunately, if you're a robot, you can easily malfunction or be reprogrammed...
  7. You don't need to engage in Mutah to get to know someone. In which case why do most Twelvers see the same Boyfriend/Girlfriend dynamic as being so immoral among Western society? The theory might be different, but in practice, it is the same.Naturally if "Mutah Boyfriends/Girlfriends" become all the rage amongst Twelvers, the community will suffer the same negative consequences that we see in the West. Lets not use the words Islamic perspective my friend, why not be more specific and say it is Halal according to the Twelver perspective. Exactly. Mutah is taboo, and quite rightly so. This fact won't be changing anytime soon, if ever. The "getting to know" phase does not necessarily require "engagement" especially if there will be no intimate contact. You "guess" that proper marriage is preferred because of Sunni's? You're kidding me right lol!I think you'll find it's more to do with it being faithfully encouraged by Islam, and indeed all the Abrahamic faiths, even the non-Abrahamic faiths for that matter. Permanent marriage is the heart of family life and the foundation of any community. Temporary relationships harbour the potential to do great harm. Permenant marriage is best because of your last point. It is highly beneficial to the individual, to the couple, to their families and to society as a whole. The reason why Mutah has such a stigma is precisely because it does not have these benefits. The practice of Mutah in ancient times was specifically for sex. Non-sexual Mutah is a fairly recent phenomenon. And only according to Ithna Asheri beliefs. It can be much worse, as the many Iranian "Masjid Brothels" are testimony to. Not only does Twelverism believe it is permissible, you actually have many Hadiths that strongly encourage it. You should practice it as much and as often as possible, indeed the more you practice it, the greater the blessings you will receive.
  8. Excellent post Sister. It's very rare to see a female perspective on Mutah on this forum. Usually it's just young virgin males expressing their frustrations and sexual fantasies. Mutah may well be permissible but only in extreme circumstances - the same way that eating pig is permissible if we are starving etc. Thankfully it is considered taboo and not practised by the majority of Twelvers. The fascinating thing is how the tiny minority of people who do practice Mutah, use it to conform to a Western lifestyle. A very strange way of using (abusing) Islam to mirror secular morality. Girls might consider Mutah as form of "engagement" before full marriage. However there is no such thing as engagements in Islam, and the very definition of Mutah is for "pleasure", not for "getting to know someone". Boys use Mutah to have "girlfriends" while they are young, before they eventually settle down and get a proper wife. Basically following the Western concepts of "dating" and having casual sex prior to marriage. One of the main criticisms that Muslims have about modern society. Ultimately Mutah will remain a very controversial issue for Twelvers as it contradicts so much of the basic foundations of Islam and makes a mockery of the value of marriage and chastity. Fortunately most parents and their daughters are strongly against Mutah, which is the way it should be. The reality is that Mutah will never become widespread, despite being constantly talked about by desperate virgins.
  9. Not really brother, this guy is a well known black journalist. Maybe not a Muslim, but still a member of a minority here in the UK. As far as the natives will be concerned, this is just one foreigner defending another. Yes, some of this reporting, but not all. In fact most of the mainstream reporting in the UK is quite balanced (despite the accusations of those with a persecution complex) but may well change in the not too distant future. Then we'll look at old issues of the Daily Mail and wonder how liberal things were back in 2013 lol. We live in a Capitalist society, this is to be expected. The same sensationalist treatment is given to all news stories, not just those involving Muslims. Perhaps, but like I said, it does more harm than good overall. To the average Brit, it comes across as making excuses instead of tackling the problem. This acknowledgement is out in the open already brother, if anything it is being handled far more gently than it should be. Compare the criticism the Catholics received over their scandals. It doesn't matter if Muslims feel they are being targeted or not, these problems should be addressed. It can be argued that if our community does feel targeted, we would be more pro-active in solving them instead of pretending they don't exist or blaming everything on outside influence.The harsh reality is that we are quickly becoming unwelcome guests in their country, even if we were born here. Whether we like it or not, or whether it's fair or not, we should hold ourselves up to a higher standard, knowing full well that if one of us makes a mistake, it will be used against us all. Besides, as Muslims, shouldn't we be setting a superior example, instead of showing we are no better then them?
  10. I'm sure the author of this article means well, but this kind of rhetoric almost always does more harm than good. If the Muslim (or any) community has an inherent problem, it should be faced and dealt with. Pointing at other people and saying "well you guys are just as bad" solves nothing and makes us look like we're part of the problem.
  11. Is that because I asked if you are gay? If you are, then I can understand your bitterness. Great, not only have you left Islam, you're also beginning to sound like my mother-in-law lol. You mean my loyalty to God? Why would that be blind? Has your "proof" changed the world?No? Well it can't be all that much of a "proof" then can it brother. Not a dilemma at all my friend. Freeing each and every slave, all at the same time, would have caused chaos. Therefore freeing them in small and large numbers over the course of time, would makes perfect sense. Incorrect. Slavery, and in particular the mechanics of its function were strongly condemned, which indicates a clear drive to reduce and eventually eradicate it.Slavery wasn't considered "evil" in the same way that divorce is not considered "evil" - both are allowed if there is no alternative, but neither is encouraged. Slavery was a necessity in the times of the Imams. At best the Imams treated them as members of their family (even marrying them), at worst they were treated as valued and respected employees.This was not how slavery operated in the centuries after the Imams, which is why it causes such contention. Lol! Let me rephrase that for you in contemporary terms my friend.In fact one can argue that the "invasion of Iraq" is necessary and good because it is a condition of possibility for there to even be the good act of "withdrawing from Iraq" A slave-girl is a hoe, and if she refuses to have sex, she is a prude...Yes, I know you were only trying to make a point, but the manner you make them in most of your posts is undeniably transparent of your underlying character. Same could be said about hypothetically believing women didn't really feel true love in ancient times, yet paradoxically thinking slave-girls would learn to love their captors if they fed and clothed them etc etc. Even more hypothetical is that a male thinks he knows how a female would feel in such circumstances.I wonder if your next post will be about how it feels to have a menstrual cycle... My God, you mean some women can be just as bad as men!Glad you pointed that out brother, because now we can obviously separate girls in to the "nice" and "nasty" categories, so that only the cold and calculated ones were used as slaves. I do concede though, painting all women as angels can be considered a form a misogyny, but a far worse form is when they are all painted as devils. The implications of the latter brings disgrace to your own and every other Muslim family in the world, especially the Holy Family. Anyway, did you have any luck finding some "hard research" to justify your previous posts, or were you just imagining things about women, like the rest of the unmarried "Defenders Of Islam" on here?
  12. I'm surprised you didn't reply to the last post I made in that thread. Don't you want to describe the sublime metamorphosis you went through to become the vastly superior Atheist you are today lol. True, some of them do, but then you can't blame them really as they are unmarried (therefore don't understand women at all yet) and don't have children (therefore have no bond with a daughter) and are probably virgins (therefore are frustrated and primarily view women as sex objects).For brothers like this, females are mainly an abstract and obscure "theory" which they have little real world knowledge or experience of. They are only half-Muslims who are still waiting to complete their deen. Naturally this will mould their interpretation of Islam, which obviously lacks the full scope and perfect balance of the religion and its deeper spirituality. You do realise this right? Don't let their inadequacies colour your own judgement of Islam my friend. Care to elaborate brother... Why not lie down on the couch Systematic... now where did we get to in our last session... oh yes, you think you've found proof that God doesn't exist... by reading a blog post on the internet... please do continue... lol. Well being a Shia, I would follow the example of Imam Hussain and die fighting to protect my faith and my family. I guess a non-Shia like you doesn't learn much from the tragedy of Karbala, which is a great shame my friend. Still, I do admit, your approach of being a coward so you can cling to this duniya for a little while longer, is very logical from an Atheistic perspective. Brother Systematic can finally find common ground with someone on this forum lol. Sisters you have married fine men, true Muslims as opposed to the many wannabe Muslims around here. Perhaps you could persuade your husbands to join the forum - when it comes to issues concerning women, it would help to redress the balance of opinion between Virgin Males versus Non-Virgin Males. Is there a rogue Moderator running around? It is always the Hadiths that confuse matters and cause conflict and misunderstanding brother.Anything that does not follow the Quran and the spirit of Islam, and goes against the character and conduct of the Ahlul Bayt, should be considered dubious at best, or ideally discarded - unfortunately many people think they are being true Muslims by doing the exact opposite.
  13. Hating the US isn't really going to accomplish anything is it brother. America is powerful right now, so it's conquering the weak. Back when Muslims were powerful, they also conquered the weak.If you want to defeat a bully, you have to be smarter than him and stronger than him. Whining about him achieves nothing. The Arabs need to get their act together instead of fighting amongst themselves and frittering away their immense wealth.
