  1. @Ghadir Leb If you have an academic background read "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" by Thomas S. Kuhn. It's gonna help you analyze things (religious/historical/scietific) independent from the (mainstream) paradigm that you (and all of us, really) have adopted in this day and age.
  2. It's not bullying, it's holding politicians accountable. Clearly the process of democracy have failed them in meeting their demands (which they totally are free to have in a democratic society) so they have to resort to other means (even if it brings some nuisance).
  3. Jewish Kabbalah is the source of all this. Kabbalah preaches to these Jews that any folk that are not the children of Israel are their enemies. Edom (Europeans), Amalek (broader Caucasians), Ishmael (Arabs) and Gog & Magog (Persians and Turks) are all nations that need to be defeated, obliterated and enslaved to leave place for the Zionist Jewish supremacist empire to be established and make all Goyim slaves to the Jews. All this is in their books (Talmud, Zohar,...) and many (if not all) rabbis espouse this views openly (on the internet even). The worst part of it all is that these freaks actively make these "prophecies" happen which is so messed up in its own way. They truly are the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in every sense.
  4. This is the same argument atheists use loool
  5. In my opinion you can't. Most of them are used to big sites/platforms like Reddit and Discord where you can be part of multiple online communities with one account. Whereas forums like SC require you to always make an account for each site.
  6. Bad design, better alternative sites, not so many young people.
  7. Muslims have Ignored Qur’anic Guidance in COVID Panic https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articles/muslims-have-ignored-qur-anic-guidance-in-covid-panic
  8. Argument #1 There is a difference between اليمني and اليماني. - Al-Yamaani (اليماني): Someone who is on the Right path and who calls to the Right path - Al Yamani (اليمني): Someone from Yemen Most if not all the hadiths use the first word. Examples: Most importantly this Hadith from Kitab Al Ghaybah where it clearly states that from all those that will rise up at that time (Sufyani, Khurasani,...), the flag of Yamaani is the rightful one and "It is not permissible for any Muslim to turn away from him and whoever does so, will be in Hell, because al-Yamani will invite to the truth and to the straight path." Others: https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/22/2/14/9 https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/22/2/18/15 https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/22/2/14/12 https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/22/2/14/11 https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/10/6/73/1 Argument #2 In many hadiths it is written that the Sufyani and the Yamani (and Khurasani) will race like horses towards Kufa to fight each other. If the Yamaani is from Yemen that implies that he would have to go through Hijaz or Najd region and would have to conquer it. But then why would the Sufyani send troops to take Medina when they will be swallowed by the earth? Sources: https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/22/2/18/15 Counterargument All I've found that would support the rising of the Yamani to be from Yemen is the following: - Wikishia article without sources - This Kitab al Ghayba hadith where it mentions that the Sufyani will not rise except after the rising from "the one from San'aa" but does not the mention Yamani by name. - Lots of Sunni sources
  9. Where would you conclude that from? Capitalism, socialism and communism are all enlightenment ideas that came from Europe from the 17th century on and spread through colonialism. Capitalism's main ideology is the right to amass as much wealth as one wishes. That goes against Islam. Look at surah Al-Humazah. Socialism as a whole. Why? Because most if not all socialistic ideologies rely on either dialectical materialism or historical materialism. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gave us Islam in its complete form, that means also for political and economical means. So no need to merge Islam with socialism either. I think it's a mistake to identify God given rights and duties as things that stem from a man-made ideology. It is a God given right to own property, it's not a "capitalistic" thing. It is a God given duty to share some of your unused wealth, it's not a "socialistic" idea. اَللّٰهُ أَعْلَم‎
  10. I don't want to be a party-pooper here, but all this talk of economic/political systems (that are not Islam) is just pointless. I understand that intellectual discourse and analysis is good since it adds to one's knowledge, but putting one's energy in enforcing a certain secular system, however righteous it deems itself to be, in this world is pointless for us as Shia of Ahlulbayt. Our political energy should be focused on standing up against Taghut in the name of Islam and the oppressed. Everything else is wasted energy. Capitalist or socialist, both are Taghut since they aren't Islam. (Yes one might be better than the other, everything is relative, but it is still Taghut. And by the way despite there being "similarities" between Islam and "socialism" and socialism allowing for "religious freedom", that doesn't excuse us from adopting their ideology. Their ideology is not Tawheed and their so called "religious freedom" is a "freedom" as long as it doesn't pose a threat towards their system. Read Ayatollah Khomeini's Islamic Government or Ayatollah Baqir Sadr's Our Philosophy. Or watch these lectures of Sheikh Sekalshfar below:
  11. But the Saddams are irrelevant in Iraq politics nowadays, and since Saddams overthrow Shias have been at the forefront of Iraqi politics so I doubt they would let a Baathi take power. And according to these hadiths/interpretations Shaysabani will be from descendants of Ahlulbayt (though I'm not sure how accurate this is) I've edited the post as it is indeed a rumor. But that still doesn't remove the fact that Muqtada's followers have done some very bad stuff. Even if he stood up against oppressors and worked with the resistance that doesn't mean we should trust in him. Me personally, purely on instinct, I don't trust the guy
  12. Salam, [Intro. Skip to Question if you want to] Recently I've been interested on the issue of the Reappearance and Mahdism, seeing as it is important for us to actively prepare for the reappearance of our Imam (aj). I've taken the time to learn about the Occultation and the signs preceding his reappearance and rising. As most of you probably know, 5 certain signs have to occur before our Imam (aj) will reappear: The rising of the Sufyani The rising of the Yamaani The murder of the Nafs Al Zakiyya (Pure soul) The swallowing of the army of the Sufyani by the earth The Sayha (the cry) These signs will be very close to one and other and close to the moment of the Imam revealing himself in Makkah. That's why the Prophet (sawas) and the Imams (عليه السلام) gave us other (preceding) signs to help us prepare. One of them being the Shaysabani. Question https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/22/2/18/8 This here hadith found in Al-Kafi and Bihar Al-Anwar talks about a certain Shaysabani rising from Ard Kufaan (Najaf?). The following interpretations I've found in Arabic sites and by some scholars: Shaysaban is another Arabic word for Shaytaan. Historically the Abbasids were known as Banu Shaysaban because they rose up against the Umayyads in the name of the Ahlulbayt but ended up oppressing and killing them Flow like water = Huge movement with many supporters Kill your delegation --> "Your" being the shia of ahlulbayt Other: He's hunchback He will rise under the name of his father He is immature and almost childish in his attitude (He's a batri) https://www.sh-alsagheer.com/post/3937 https://www.imamalmahdisigns.com/ar/Alsheesbani.html Now some people read this and immediately think of one person: Muqtada Al-Sadr. He did just win an election and he seems to have taken a harsh approach towards the other Shia who won (accusing them of being militias who work only for Iran's interests). And to be honest he seems to be meeting some of the requirements. Obviously we can't jump to conclusions so fast. But what do you all think? Sidenote: Many scholars frown upon him and it's been rumoured he was the one who ordered the killing of AbdulMajid Al Khoei (Ayatollah Khoei's son)
  13. Through your eyes you see what happened as it being a "political failure", whereas Imam Ali (عليه السلام) stood firmly by his principles and would not compromise them for political self-gain, he did not want to involve himself in the game of political deception just like muawiya and his bunch.
