    Assalamu 'alaykum, my dear brother. In regards to our duty in calling to al-Islam, it is upon us to do so. It is a Sunnah of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and of the best deeds one can do. Allah says in Surah al-Fussilat (chapter 33):
    اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ قَالُوۡا رَبُّنَا اللّٰهُ ثُمَّ اسۡتَقَامُوۡا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيۡهِمُ الۡمَلٰٓـئِكَةُ اَلَّا تَخَافُوۡا وَلَا تَحۡزَنُوۡا وَاَبۡشِرُوۡا بِالۡجَـنَّةِ الَّتِىۡ كُنۡتُمۡ تُوۡعَدُوۡنَ
    نَحۡنُ اَوۡلِيٰٓـؤُکُمۡ فِى الۡحَيٰوةِ الدُّنۡيَا وَفِى الۡاٰخِرَةِ ۚ وَلَـكُمۡ فِيۡهَا مَا تَشۡتَهِىۡۤ اَنۡفُسُكُمۡ وَلَـكُمۡ فِيۡهَا مَا تَدَّعُوۡنَ
    نُزُلًا مِّنۡ غَفُوۡرٍ رَّحِيۡمٍ
    وَمَنۡ اَحۡسَنُ قَوۡلًا مِّمَّنۡ دَعَاۤ اِلَى اللّٰهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَّقَالَ اِنَّنِىۡ مِنَ الۡمُسۡلِمِيۡنَ
    Verily, those who say “Allah is our Lord” and then remain steadfast, upon them descend angels [saying]: “Do not fear nor grieve, and receive good tidings of Paradise which you were promised.
    We [angels] are your companions in this world and in the Hereafter. There you shall have all of what you desire and whatever you will ask for.
    This is by way of hospitality from Him; the Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
    And who is fairer in speech than he who calls to Allah and acts righteously and says: “I am from among the Muslims”?
    Surah al-Fussilat, verses 30-34.
    Allah states in Surah an-Nahl (chapter 16):
    اُدۡعُ اِلٰى سَبِيۡلِ رَبِّكَ بِالۡحِكۡمَةِ وَالۡمَوۡعِظَةِ الۡحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلۡهُمۡ بِالَّتِىۡ هِىَ اَحۡسَنُؕ اِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ اَعۡلَمُ بِمَنۡ ضَلَّ عَنۡ سَبِيۡلِهٖ وَهُوَ اَعۡلَمُ بِالۡمُهۡتَدِيۡنَ‏
    (O Messenger), call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and reason with them in the best of manners. Surely your Lord knows best who has strayed away from His path, and He knows well those who are guided to the Right Way.
    Surah an-Nahl, verse 125.
    Doing this is obligatory and recommended upon us because it is in the way of Allah and following the Sunnah of His beloved Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The guidelines on how one should do it is mentioned in the Qur'anic verses above: with wisdom, reasoning, discussions, and urging. The Messenger of Allah says in an authentic narration:
     مَنْ دَعَا إِلَى هُدًى كَانَ لَهُ مِنَ الأَجْرِ مِثْلُ أُجُورِ مَنْ تَبِعَهُ لاَ يَنْقُصُ ذَلِكَ مِنْ أُجُورِهِمْ شَيْئًا وَمَنْ دَعَا إِلَى ضَلاَلَةٍ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ مِنَ الإِثْمِ مِثْلُ آثَامِ مَنْ تَبِعَهُ لاَ يَنْقُصُ ذَلِكَ مِنْ آثَامِهِمْ شَيْئًا
    He who called [others] to righteousness, there would be reward for him like the rewards of those who adhered to it, without their rewards detracted in any respect. And he who called to error, he shall have to carry of its sin, like those who committed it, without their sins being diminished in any respect.
    Sahih Muslim by Imam Muslim: Book 34, Hadith #6470
    Your duty, before coming a caller to Islam, is to gain knowledge. Before learning knowledge, learn good manners and sincerity and understand the basics of your way of life. 
    And Allah knows best.

    Salam, 
    We all are in some or the other way entrusted with this duty. (In my personal opinion). 
    So, we should elevate only ourselves and leave the issue of non-muslims to Allah. It is said that good morals attract the hearts. If we strongly follow our faith, non-muslims will change when they will see us.

    Being selfish is a moral sin.And not guiding one to eternal bliss is too a selfishness. For eternal bliss one needs to submit to Allah. So desiring and striving of eternal bliss and inviting others is selfishness.
    In addition after Holy Prophet saw who's duty is to convey the message of Allah and guide non-Muslims towards Allah.
    What is our duty.And how much we have fullfill it.

    I find it difficult to imagine that jannat is granted sect wise because in every sect there are both good and bad people, posers and proper, practicing and non-practicing. We also cannot count 73 but they exist. Most probably they have classified sects in real, through real standards and knowledge of beliefs in the hearts and the deeds done, unlike the way we do which is the usual labels and classifications which are mere words on our tongues. Just the other day someone corrupt to the bone swore by our Maula Ameer (عليه السلام) while talking to me and in astonishment I asked him what business has he with maula when everything he does and believes in is in opposition to all they stand for and command? Now if the likes of that guy due to his "sect", as is your understanding, makes it into heaven then his perpetual presence in heaven will not make it a very good place to be in.

    islam25 got a reaction from Zaidism in Participating in politics as a Muslim   
    The following passage from by Dr Farrokh may help to clear it question.
    Don’t waste yourselves! We are not allowed to assign ourselves as the suppressed!
    Our goal is to incorporate Allah’s attributes within ourselves. As to the medium through which this can optimally be actualised, we shall answer that during future sessions, inshallah. However, the concept of the mustad’af still requires further deliberation. The mustad’af is one whose journey to perfection and whose objective and goal to be Allah-like has been compromised. Their freedom has been hampered either out of their own doing or others’. Such a state should not continue. A people may temporarily experience and live under circumstances whereby they qualify as a mustad’af (suppressed), they must however not tolerate such a status quo and they must not integrate into such a status quo and should therefore retaliate and minimize and endeavour in overcoming such a suppressed situation. Not doing so is tantamount to giving the green light to shame and self-abasement. Some people may have the highest of socio-economic statuses, highest of academia-related certificates and even the highest of seminary qualifications, but as a result of optionally living under a status quo whereby their journey to become Allah’s ‘caliphate’ is barred, they are in reality poor, ignorant and suppressed unless they either endeavour towards correcting the ambiance or in the very least, leave. Yes, they must – a spiritual must I must add – leave and migrate elsewhere where they can more comfortably reach one’s objective and exit the folds of being a mustad’af. Either endeavour or migrate. But never be comfortable with being a mustad’af. 
    In the Holy Quran, 4:97, explicit reference is made to one of the questions angels are to ask many of us. In the aḥādīth, examples of questions that are to be asked are abundantly mentioned such as “who is your Lord?”, “what is your Book?” and “who is your Prophet?” – and we accept this. However, in 4:97, a question is referred to which in and of itself embraces all the ḥadīth questions. Deliberate carefully! When the angels see the poor spiritual status of the person (applies to humans – muslim or non-muslim) and see that the person was drowned in wrong-doing, they ask the person: “in what condition were you in?” Why have you abased and shamed yourself spiritually? Didn’t you have a warner? Why did you make yourself susceptible to all this? Its game over now! no returning back! Why did you do this to yourself? Then, in 4:97, the poor person’s reply comes “we were of the suppressed ones in the land!” Yes, the reason why their resurrection in the Hereafter is so unhuman and as a result of not attaining to perfection and not incorporating divine attributes, they are resurrected as apes, pigs, snakes, predators and the like, due to their integration into a capitalist, socialist, fascist, tyrannical, liberal or anarchical state that had hampered their progress towards perfection and they were okay with it! Then the angels exclaim “wasn’t Allah’s earth spacious for you to migrate therein?” the verse then ends stating that such people’s refuge is Hell and what an evil destination it is to be. 
    Its only when you have correctly endeavoured in not being suppressed (a mustad’af) will you be able to truly reply to questions such as who is your Lord, who is your prophet… Don’t lose the plot. Don’t reverse the equation. All prophets have come to tell us to call upon Allah and reject all forms of tāghūt (16:36). The tāghūt is that which hampers you from incorporating Allah’s attributes. Be it a government, a lifestyle, an ideology etc. We are not allowed to allow the many forms of tāghūt that exist to permeate and diffuse into our lives. Hence, the prescription from Imam Sādiq (peace be upon him) guiding us not to eat, clothe or walk like those who are the enemy, who assign lifestyles and systems whereby Man is inhibited in progressing towards perfection. An Islamic lifestyle dictates one to eat, walk and clothe etc. in a particular manner because that manner is on a par with one’s journey to perfection. The ultimate criterion is how much of the attributes of perfection have we incorporated within ourselves. Allah is absolute perfection and each jurisprudential, ethical and doctrinal article is traced back to absolute perfection and is assigned so that we become more and more Allah-like.
    So imagine one lives comfortably – without endeavouring to compensate – under such forms of tāghūt and intentionally assign themselves as mustad’af and suppressed, not only have they ruined and wasted themselves, but they have added and participated and propagated and enhanced the tāghūtī system and they will be resurrected with such a system in the Hereafter. To be continued…

    Establising a network  
    It has been said as long the 313 aren’t collected then the return of imam al Mahdi will also be extended..
    trough all the technology we have it’s much more easier to get into a communication with people who live on the other side of the world.. technically we don’t have a reason to not create a network and preparing for his pleasant return.
    if we would start to create a network than its not really that important to have seen each other in real live... trough social network we can do its actually easier and much more save..
    if we Got connected To each other trough socialmedia like;twitter,Instagram,Facebook,tiktok etc... we could easily work together by creating group chats and working together to spread the messegas of ahlalbait!!
    for example I was downloading TikTok with an intention to post about Shia Islam and spreading it and showing that Shia Islam isn’t a kuffar religion etc... I found out that I was not only one with such idea... i saw how lots of people spreaded Shia Islam in no time.. and people constantly asking who the halal Bayt actually are... 
    so social network makes it so much easier to spread knowledge and get in contact with people from the other side of the world!!
    no one can be left alone coz everyone can safely join it!! Either anonymously or without 
    Btw I really want to be clear!! Everyone who doesn’t want to join then ignore the post and if you are interest than please let’s help each other to create a huge social network  from different countries all over the world..let’s not forget that’s its our future and it can get destroyed if we wouldn’t work together because of the satanical world we start to live in with lots of legalizations of disguising things.. please remember our future and the next ones..
    you’re thoughts??

    I'm wondering how life can be "more fulfilling". Let me think.
    - You get a super immune system and do not age or degrade or lose sanity.
    - You become able to become a super genius like Tesla (Tesla was religious but nvm).
    - You invent the everlasting light bulb or free energy or some world changing breakthrough and become a hero (and patent and live to see it).
    - You get to walk on the moon or visit mars.
    - You get free college without sacrificing an arm and a leg.
    - You don't have to work anymore.
    - You get to live without gender discrimination/bias, race bias, all bias and hate.
    - Your lunch becomes free forever.
    - You get the perfect spouse(s).
    - All wars and injustice end.
