  1. Muslims need to stop feeling ashamed if they go to a counsellor. It's a good thing to let out all our worries to someone who'll offer us professional advice. Even if you feel that you have no mental issues, it's totally normal to go to a counsellor.
  2. - Islamic children books - Take them to community events which are catered for children. They should learn to have fun during the birth anniversaries of our Imams (عليه السلام). - Islamic short clips - Ashura poetry.
  3. Nah another nonsense series which has a hidden message. Since the Islamic Republic of Iran is always talking about preparing for Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام), it's clearly sparked the curiosity of many people in the world. Israel and major powers of this world know the strength of Hezbollah etc. They know how much Shias are even willing to give away their lives in serving the Imam (عليه السلام) of their time. It's an attempt to discredit this whole concept and place doubts in people's heads. Observe the timing and why did they show the man to be of an Arab origin?
  4. This is not practical at all imo. Like your subconscious brain kinda makes you freeze and you don't even have an ounce worth of energy to think that way. It's not a solution for people who have severe anxiety, although it can work for someone who only gets slightly nervous.
  5. If you want to gain a large following you need to add your own personality and be entertaining. You need to look at your competitors out there, ask yourself "why will Shias prefer your content over the countless amount of books and lectures out there." If you have a very formal approach to your videos, then people will want to see your qualifications. I'd rather watch an academic lecture by a Sheikh who's studied at hawza compared to a self-learned person. Putting yourself out there and having a personality is the key. People in this day and age would want to know your life story. Try to spice things up and stand out. Maybe get your ideas across through vlogging? But yeah it's just my own opinion. You need to create your own content and be very creative. You have to start somewhere, so don't get demotivated right now. Once you start creating content, you'll get a feel for what works and what doesn't
  6. Try to gain a large following on instagram as well, it's quite possible and easier to achieve.
  7. Shiekh Jawad Qazwini focuses a lot on social issues, such as family life etc. He even interacts a lot with his fans on insta.
  8. Our sect is not based on our personal misguided "feelings". Christians feel they are guided, Hindus feel they are guided, Sufis feel they are guided. We all feel closer to God etc. The fact is that the love of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) can't fill your heart without you having hatred for the enemies of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). If you feel it works that way then it's an illusion.
  9. I know a friend who had a serious stuttering problem. He could barely talk properly in front of his friends, let alone in front of an audience. That guy joined Toastmasters and after a year, he's transformed into a different person. He still gets a bit nervous but it's manageable. You need to take the first step and look for opportunities where you'll speak in front of a large audience on a regular basis. I was even a nervous wreck before. I remember in a High School presentation, my legs legit started shaking and my heart was about to explode. I know it's a horrible feeling. Through exposing myself and doing a lot of presentations, I've gotten better. I no longer get that nervous. In fact, I enjoy speaking in front of a large audience now. I even do poetry recitations at my local Shia center. Man, you need to expose yourself and put yourself out there. The advice all the members will give you here won't do anything unless you have an active approach. I was the same as you, looking for solutions online, they didn't help my anxiety one bit.
  10. Join Toastmasters, it's a lifesaver. I'm sure there'll be Toastmasters in your city. It's basically a club where you get to practise public speaking. The only way you'll get better is through exposure. Trust me there is no shortcut. There is no other way.
  11. I actually agree with you. Men aren't as vocal about it as they should be. For example, just observe how so many men make sexist jokes and laugh it off. Guys turn everything into a joke and don't call out their friends for their actions etc.
  12. @notme Why do we have to make this a gender thing? If you ask an average sincere practising Muslim guy, he would also fear ending up with a snake. The OP mentioned men cheating on their wives, having no emotional intelligence etc. Why do we make it seem as if women aren't guilty of any of this? It clearly makes it seem as if women are the victims. Women can also play with a guy's feelings and do horrible stuff on these dating sites. This is just the experience of the OP. Period. We tend to get overly emotional with these statements which are clearly uncalled for. It's an impossible task to change the behaviour of every guy out there. What will lamenting the shortage of men do? It makes it seem as if there's a gender issue or something wrong with men's inherent nature. Focusing on strengthening ones faith and character etc. Will automatically filter out and increase the number of decent people in society, be they men or women.
  13. Sounds like a plan, aye? Looking foward to training you. It's going to be awesome. You excited?
  14. Well there'll be injuries in any sport. AFL or rugby are pretty dangerous as well. Even in soccer I got a serious leg injury ages back. There's always going to be risk. I don't think one can say it's harram if your intention is to get fit and appreciate the sport.
