  1. Salam. I know the girl personally on another platform and can say for sure it isn't a scam. @Shi3i_jadeed and @Husayni can also verify
  2. This is a quote of Imam Khomeini It was very very bad but I think my grandmother didn't suffer as much since it was under the second shah not reza shah Hmm she told me she wore it during that time and the teachers would punish her, maybe she meant outside of school?
  3. My grandma wore one anyways I was told girls who wore them were beaten though and it was very much discouraged though not banned completely like under Reza Shah.
  4. There are hadiths prohibiting chess, don't know what you mean by "could not." The rules of the religion don't change because you don't like them. How much Zaydi literature have you read lol. Are you convinced that the zaydi doctrine is true or just like it?
  5. Servers where people pretend to be a nation (in this case Iran). They don't do anything useful or nation related, just talk and spam stuff. Waste of time.
  6. Not really. They keep all your info and sell it to companies (or if it's suspicious the government) and there are some pretty nasty people on there.
  7. I didn't click after seeing Carlzone's reply and don't think any guys should either. Whats with all these weird topics lately....
  8. Akhi what do you think of this article http://www.revisitingthesalaf.com/2014/12/imam-al-mahdi-ajf-part-iii.html. I'm neutral on this issue but this article basically proves the sanad to Sulaym ibn Qays to be reliable. Sheikh al-Tusi said there was Ijma on this issue if i remember correctly so of course it was a common belief, the issue is this particular event (of Imam Ali (as) threatening Umar) is only found in Kitab Sulaym so if you consider Kitab Sulaym weak you can't really prove this happened. Got a pdf of the book? I remember reading on al-islam that Amir Moezzi believed that the original book (as in the book without the distortion and addition which has happened over the ages) would be reliable.
  9. From Sayed Sistani's risalah Issue 14: If a person performs his acts for some time without taqlid of a Mujtahid, and later follows a Mujtahid, his former actions will be valid if that Mujtahid declares them to be valid, otherwise they will be treated as void. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01208/ This takes 5 minutes, if you want to find out the Shia opinion on something don't just ask random people on facebook, ask someone in real life or do some research...
  10. This is why you never say Assad must + the opposite of stay. v
  11. I like how his speeches cover a wide variety of topics. Even if you disagree with him on some points there's always something to be taken from what he says.
  12. Anyone got sources showing psychological damage done from delaying marriage for so long? Of course it isn't ideal but what psychologists say about it would be interesting to hear.
  13. Yeah countries like Lebanon are too fractured to be run by Islamic law, that would cause another civil war. But as for Iraq even though Shias and Sunnis are divided there it's possible, why don't they give Sunnis autonomy to run under their own Sunni system while the Shia areas are run by Shia judges and authorities? Better than the corruption they have right now.
  14. Of course the US outclasses the IRI in almost everything. Just wondering if it would have a big impact on Iranians lives. Would it be able to help people keep their businesses and investments safe? I hope so but economically Iran's future seems bleak.
  15. What do you guys think of Iran's recent move towards cryptocurrencies to counter US sanctions? I don't think going cashless or relying on cryptocurrencies is bad in itself though I am more interested in the Iran situation than Sweden.
  16. The economy of Iran is a mixed and transition economy with a large public sector. Some 60 percent of the economy is centrally planned.[13][14] It is dominated by oil and gas production, although over 40 industries are directly involved in the Tehran Stock Exchange, one of the best performing exchanges in the world over the past decade.[15][16] With 10 percent of the world's proven oil reserves and 15 percent of its gas reserves, Iran is considered an "energy superpower".[17][18][19][20] Iran has fifth highest total estimated value of natural resources, valued at US$27.3 trillion in 2016.[21] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Iran
  17. Yes diversification would be good and that would have happened if the foreign investments from Europe etc continued. I still think they can reevaluate that if they allow more investments from friendly countries like Turkey, India, China, Russia etc. I hope they do figure this out because poverty seems to be wearing down the people in Iran from what I can tell.
  18. Aaaaaaand the salafis got our server taken down. I feel like discord really needs to crack down on mass reporting. For the 5th time, here is our server's permanent invite https://discord.gg/nWB6EQf. Can a mod pin this message or something? @Gaius I. Caesar
  19. The Iraqi government is very corrupt and obviously not Islamic by nature, the scholars don't rule in Iraq. As for Iran there is corruption like any other country but the root cause of the poverty is the harsh US sanctions. Most of the Iranian economy is run by the IRGC which most governments consider a terror group which means dealings with them (and by extension the companies they are linked to) are reprehensible, and that makes business with Iran very hard. Add to that the unstable political climate which is becoming even more unstable with an unstable man in the white house, that makes investing in Iran too risky for many, hence money isn't coming into the country. That isn't the fault of the maraji who condemn and prosecute corrupt officials.
  20. Yeah that is a good idea, I heard some say Shaheed al-Sadr (ra) had a similar political theory, that the people elect their government with the oversight of the scholars who are essentially guardians of the system. Still then it is in a way theocracy (as in it's an Islamic government not a secular one and the scholars occupy the highest posts). Though interestingly regarding a constitutional monarchy, the 1906 constitution of Iran says: The Shah is constitutional monarch while the scholars oversee him and his government, and the nation as a whole adheres to and propagates Islam.
  21. Do you think the ahadith above referred only to writing a risalah and sitting in their home? Democracy doesn't mean you are free of similar corruption that comes with dictatorships and oligarchies. Look at India, it's a "democracy" yet people don't even have toilets in many parts of the country. And news flash: politicians lie, and that's why many of the promises which democratically elected officials gain their votes off are never fulfilled. Yes but they all agree that the scholars have some degree of authority no? I don't think any scholar would prefer a secular democracy over jurists having authority.
