  1. (bismillah) (salam) As a very long standing member and Admin of this site - I feel like its time to hang it up. Ive spent a lot of time here, and met a lot of great brothers and sisters. I don't have the time to actually benefit the site any more and I feel like its becoming more of a hinderence to my time than any thing else. I am sorry to any one I have offended - and to any one who has been wronged by me - please forgive me or at least contact me and let me know if you require my apology. Other wise - May Allah bless all of you with the light of guidance through the
  2. This is nothing new hes attacked several Maraja and other respected scholars. He is a disturbed individual, and most probably suffers from some mental issues. I know him and his family personally. Hes not all there in the head.
  3. Your statement isnt correct because there is a plataue. If a gymnist weighs like 130 or so pounds, lifing double or even tripple their body weight is very doable - although impressive. However that means that they are lifting under 400 pounds of weight. The human body can only lift so much - even if you start getting physically heavier. A guy who is 250 pounds - even if its 100% muscle - would have a really really difficult time lifting 750 pounds, if he did it would be most impressive - that would be world class actually. For example the world record for the Clean and Jerk was set by Rezaz
  4. with proper training and technique its actually not as difficult as it seems, even at that age. Although still impressive. I doubt that the old man is on steroids - Ronnie Coleman on the other hand... well that one is a no brainer. Also just a question .. where did it say it was 220kg? This is in texas - in the u.s the weights are done in pounds not kilos - those look like 2 x 45 pound plates on each side with the bar (standard is 45 pounds) should be - 225 pounds. About 100 kilos.
  5. This is one of the lesser known atrocities that took place at the hands of the imperialists. If I recall correctly an aproximate 10 million Iranians starved to death. As an Ummah - I think we often over look how deep the impacts of imperialism and colonialism have been and still are.
  6. As long as she understands that when she is going through the motions of Salat and reciting the words in english the second time she prays that this is not prayer - ie it is not actual salat and it doesnt count as salat, then there is no fiqh/shariah problem with what she is doing. The only suggestion I have is that if she is very newly converted- that she becareful not to burn her self out doing this all the time, as then she may start to get tired and consider the whole ordeal burdonsome. As others suggested - it may be better for her to try learn the meaning of the words outside of prayer
  7. I was going to post the picture of Sayed Khamenie (ha) with the broken sandal, but Repenter beat me to it. It should also be noted that his own children ride around on public transportation. Next time some one sees Sayed Khamenie (ha) riding around in some luxary jet wearing 5,000 dollar suits like obama - or ridding in a solid gold carriage Saddam style, please post up the videos/pictures.
  8. I get enough of a work out lifting my self out of bed.
  9. (salam) jaguar_knight , The thing is that you cant blame women for being who they are. This is the way Allah created them. Not to be deceptive to you or to others - or to hurt you - but they have been created to be cautious, doubtful about men - and emotional in their nature. Blame the society - it has corrupted many of these women, or it has put them in a place that is outside of their role. Islam has placed the wilayah of a girls marriage in the hands of her father. If he his an adil mumin man he will step in and direct her/encourage her towards marrying a person who fits Islams crit
  10. lol your making it sound like this guy was married to this girl or some thing. "Terrible wound" .. "hurt".. come on I dont even think you believe th words your saying, if you do - you got some issues of your own. He has no relationship with this woman at all - hes just infatuated with her. These are the actions/thinking patterns of young kids who grow a "crush" on some one. This is not how an adult acts or thinks. The point is that this type of thinking/behavior is really selfish and childish, and if a grown man is going to think and act like that he needs to be treated like a child.
  11. I don't know why you think people are going to condone your idea. You want some honest advice? Find your own wife. It's not appropriate behavior to get involved with a woman who is getting married. You sound like a really selfish person. Not only is it rude and inappropriate - you are going to cause all sorts of problems for this young lady. Leave her alone - if you do this you will also put her career at risk as well. This is not some Hollywood romance movie. This is real life. If you do this - the most likely out come is that you will shame your self and by extension your family. You wil
  12. If you do that your an idiot. Seriously I don't usually say things ilke that to people, but the fact that you are actually considering this - and even posted on it... You need to grow up big time.
  13. (salam) King - If you think of it as a game, it will become one. The reality is that almost all young women are like what the OP has described – and it is as they should be. Women are in defense mode, this is how Allah has created them, they are looking for anything to doubt a man in terms of mating with him (marriage). Which is good – they have a lot to lose if things go bad, where as the guy doesn’t have that much to lose. When a man smothers a woman with too much attention, he comes off as having weak character – because in fact he DOES have weak character. It’s a character flaw – it
  14. (salam) Sorry this happened to you brother. This may end up bad -but it will be a good lesson for the future either way. The first thing - don't take advice from young women on what to do with women. If you are going to take advice take it from guys who have soem experiance with women or take it from married/older women. Young women have no idea what htey want them selves- and hardly know what other women want. They change their mind ALL the time, and are very fickle. You gave her too much attention, she lost interest. THis happens. She thinks you are desperate, and don't have other op
  15. Old news - recent statement - but old news. There have already been multiple attempts on the Sayeds Life over the years, as well as various foiled plots. They have been trying for 10+ years. Even Saddam wasnt stupid enough to openly assasinate some one like Sayed Seestani. Its all talk. If by some chance that they do it, it will only make him a much stronger figure in death than in life.
  16. (salam) I am not going to even address the question - as answers have been provided, and opinions can be understood if researched - the problem is this: Instead of asking for clarification or for genuine knowledge - you have already made the assumption that the speaker is wrong and have no desire to even understand what they could possibly be saying - but instead have chosen to look for a refutation of some sort. This is not how you learn or gain knowledge - and it is also disrespectful to the late sayed who is featured in the video, may Allah grant him the shifa'a of ahlulbayt and
  17. Any way to answer OPs question - it depends on the enviornment/situation. But from a strictly sharia perspective it is not forbiden to wear shorts essentially any where.
  18. I see guys like the one above ag the gym all the time - all ways has me shaking my head (but good for a laugh lol)
  19. As I originally suspected OP is a troll as proven by other thread created by user - full of disrespectful and explicit things. User banned - this thread is now closed
  20. Many of you are wrongly associating negative marital behavior as well as over all problematic behavior with an increase in an individual's outward religious practice and furthering secular notions that some how religion causes people to become rude as well as frigid marriage partners. Where as in reality this has nothing to do with people becoming more observant of sharia but every thing to do with culture and individual character flaws. People who are not very outwardly observant are not some how less inclined to be arrogant or frigid marriage partners Please stop making sweeping generaliza
  21. On a serious note though people complaining about not being able to gain/keep weight. You are not eating enough... simple as that. All this stuff about having an extra fast metabolism is really exaggerated. People take very serious dieting drugs that can have dangerous side effects (like clenbeuteral) and at the very most these drugs MIGHT boost some ones metabolism by 10% . For average sized person that's probably around 200 calories. It is extremely unlikely that any one has a natural metabolism that is so high that it makes gaining weight extremely difficult. If some ones metabolism was r
  22. Being fit and healthy is over rated - checking in at 350 pounds 40% body fat
