  1. Salam. I lived in Karachi, Pakistan for a year and one thing I can tell you for sure is that if your family is traditional and follow their culture strictly, the freedoms you get here in the West won’t be given to you in Pakistan. I could never imagine going out there on my own for coffee or even for a walk because people will talk about you a lot and your family over there probably won’t be okay with it either. However, if your family is a little bit more understanding and open-minded to a woman going out on her own, working etc. then it may not be such a big issue for you. It depends wh

  3. Didn't think the news of the attack on Baghdad would hit me this hard. :'( They went to buy clothes for Eid.. And now they go buy coffins for their beloveds. :'( Ya Saheb Al Zaman(as) where are you??
  4. Lol how evil. ^^ You had to mention all those good foods while I'm fasting :huh:
  5. Innocent Iraqi civilians killed. Why? Only because they were lovers of Ali(as). :'(
  6. Lol it really bugs me how the all scholars say different timings for Eid. Back when I used to live in Dubai, we didn't know it was Eid until 12 in the afternoon because Khamenei and Sistani both gave different dates. So we just fasted instead, and we had to break our fast when we found out lol because it's haram to fast on Eid.
  7. Yes and Umar even says that he never doubted the Prophethood of RasoolAllah(saw) as much as he did on Hudaibiyah.
  8. "Remember me when the truth becomes alone..alone and sad." -Imam Hussain(ع) :(

  9. No they won't because the attack didn't happen on whites. (: Rather they're blaming Islam for the attack(as always) and not ISIS. Such ignorants.
  10. UPDATE: Death toll rises up to 120. Leaving more than 200 people injured. https://www.google.ca/amp/mobile.nytimes.com/2016/07/04/world/middleeast/baghdad-bombings.amp.html?client=safari# Ya Allah :'(
  11. This is so heartbreaking :'( May Allah swt protect the people of Iraq.
  12. La fata illa Ali(as), La saif illa zulfiqar. ❤️

  13. I guess it's harder for the ones who've moved to the West in later years of their life. I moved here 2 years ago, and I can never seem to integrate. It's completely different coming from a Muslim country, where everyone's practicing Islam and then suddenly moving to the West and living with the Western culture. I know living in the West has it's own benefits and freedom, and it might even be better than most of the Muslim countries today, but it is quite challenging to live here as a Muslim. I've seen many who apostated after moving to the West because they found Islam to be too 'conservative'
  14. I really wish there was a way I could leave the West. I can never leave the house without getting weird stares and whispers for wearing a black abaya. Not a day passes by where I don't hear about islamophobic behavior towards my friends and relatives. I don't think we muslims in the West will be able to deal with all this hate any longer. But unfortunately not most of us can just pack up our bags and migrate to a Muslim country. and which Muslim country is even safe for Shias other than Iran?
  15. Don't waste your time brother. The comment section on YouTube is filled with a bunch of ignorant people who've probably never read a book in their life about Islam and they come telling us about our religion like they know everything when all they do is take verses from the Quran out of context. They're entitled to their ignorant opinion. There's no use speaking to such people. I used to read the comment section after watching videos about Islam but I completely stopped. The hate towards Islam in those comments just makes me furious. I can't understand how people can be so ignorant when knowle
  16. Omg the exact same thing happened with me on Arbaeen! I was a 13 year old teenager who got lost in the walk from Najaf to Karbala. I had no phone, no way of contacting anybody, and I didn't even know where our qafla was. And this was my first visit ever to Iraq. I didn't even know how to speak Arabic. I turned to Najaf and complained to Imam Ali(as), and asked him to help me. I suddenly felt a sense of hope and kept walking whereever the road took me, I was alone without our group for a whole day and night. I slept in some Iraqi tent and i didn't find my group until I finally reached the hotel
  17. I've seen many miracles in Karbala. Well for one, on Ashura last year, the wall of the shrine of Imam Hussain(as)(infront of the maqtal) was literally bleeding, it was around 8 Muharrum. And the same day in Karbala there was a huge dust storm, we could barely see anything and our group was at the hotel at that time. It was around 9PM. So we were in the dining room and when we looked out of the window, we saw a huge yellow beam of light coming from the dome of Abu Fadhlil Abbas(as), going up all the way to the sky. And mind you the whole sky was dusty and dark at this time, so we all rushed ups
  18. When shall we meet again Ya Hussein(as)? :'(

  19. Allahoma arzekna ziyarat al Hussain(as) fid duniya, wa shafa3at l Hussain(as) fil akhira ):

  20. وَنُرِيدُ أَن نَّمُنَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ اسْتُضْعِفُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَنَجْعَلَهُمْ أَئِمَّةً وَنَجْعَلَهُمُ الْوَارِثِينَ And We desire to bestow a favour upon those who were deemed weak in the land, and to make them the leaders, and to make them the heirs. (Surah Qasas: 5) Imam Ali ibn abi Talib says in the Nahj al Balagha that "those who were deemed weak" refers to the Ahl ul Bayt. When Imam Muhammad bin Hasan al-Mahdi would appear and Islam would be established in the whole world with his coming, the entire earth wou
  21. Oh wow. My mistake then. I've heard that line of poetry many times in lectures, and the lecturer usually said it like it's something Imam Hussain(as) said on Ashura. But thankyou for letting me know
  22. Sorry, I missed out the part where the OP said he's a Sunni. I thought he was a Shia non-Sayyed who wanted to marry a Sayyeda Shia. and yeah I wouldn't really suggest marrying a Shia if you're Sunni.
  23. And brother, it's not wrong at all to marry a Sayyeda shia. This is all cultural and has nothing to do with Islam. Though I'm pretty sure most parents in Pak-India don't allow their daughters to marry non-Sayyeds. Hopefully the girl's family isn't like the majority though.
