  1. Billions of dollars invested into the military anually. And yet they failed to stop Iranian missiles. By Allah we shall be victorious.
  2. Nobody gave up. But the pain certain people created was humiliating and abnormal. It was disrespecting to the fullest.
  3. O' Taleb, Standing at the side of the field yelling commands and calling injustice is easy and requires little energy. Being inside the field requires toughness and resilience. Acknowledging this injustice is of the past. As I already acknowledge it as great injustice. Every soul has its own limits. And every soul has its own time. Sadly infinite trials do not exist in a finite world. And infinity cannot be understood by a finite entity. Stubborness and ignorance is a problem in our society and culture. Fixing it is our only hope to move forwards.
  4. Even though receiving a glimpse of the feeling of attachment again ignites a gentle but rather wide smile on my face, I believe it would be impossible due to the nature of parents. They do not experience the sorrow and pain their offspring does.
  5. It's a detailed story full of ups and downs. A long journey of hope which was crushed in the ending like a garlic glove. A bitter glove which changed my realities. I felt like a man for once. A desirable man. A man of society. A man backed by a pious woman. But now... I must face the emptiness of society. And only thoughts can refer me back to the moments of strength. It's a difficult question to answer. In short, no. I couldn't. Since it was not me who caused it. Nor her. If wanted I can immerse everyone in this experience one day. I usually keep it in myself so others would not feel sorrow or grief or sadness after partaking in such a story. But I can make exceptions.
  6. Been there. Experienced exactly the same thing as you. However, I'm not married. It sadly got severely broken down by the negligence parents have. I believe my dream was worth dreaming and was worth living. We had no bad intentions. Only to grow old and grumpy together. It was the best time of my life. It gave me enjoyment and character. It shaped me with responsibilities. It made me feel someone, something. I was finally important. A moment in my life - which lasted a year - will haunt me for the rest of my life of the great missed opportunity that wasn't even in my control. If I could, just like you, I would remove human emotions and desires to safeguard myself from this experience. But sadly, all I can do is think back and enjoy the moments I had. Never will I forget this. And never will I forget the importance I was to her. It's depressing it ended. And it's depressing it ended abruptly. Fin. How can I cry over her departure, when her presence remains? My mind will never forget.
  7. I feel so honored to be among the top funny ShiaChat users. All of my hard work and dedication has paid off. Getting mentioned in this thread has been a dream of mine for many years, and I would like to thank those who have helped me along the way. First and foremost I would like to thank God for giving me this opportunity. Next I would like to thank my parents. I want to thank my friend Geoff for being really skinny and always there for me. I would also like to thank my pet tadpole for surviving against all odds for over a week. Next I would like to thank the squirrel that lives in my backyard for climbing trees because that gives me inspiration that I need to get through the day. This is a special moment in my life and I would like to thank any of my unmentioned friends and family that have helped me along the way. This moment will be a moment that I will never forget. I just remembered a few other people I would like to thank: Abraham Lincoln, the fish I caught in the third grade, my light in my room because I wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard without it, the internet for letting me go on the shiachat forums, my house because without it I would be homeless, and last but not least I would like to thank all the people out there that actually took time out of their day to read this. I cannot stress how much of a big deal to me this is. I have been trying to be among the top funny shiachat users for years, but that has not been possible until this amazing day. Hopefully my good luck will continue, but this is undoubtedly a rare occasion. If you asked me how I did this, I would say, you can achieve anything you set your mind on. To all the kids out there reading this, I would like to tell them to follow their dreams. Being the top is truly amazing, thank you everyone.
  8. Easy. 1. Middle-Eastern cuisine; Irani, Lobnani, Iraqi, Afghani; they taste good and have many similarities in dishes and names. 2. Turkish cuisine; mainstream here in Europe. Lots of easy go-to restaurants are turkish like döner and shawarma shops. 3. Italian cuisine; yeah boy, this is just a standard. Pizza, lasagna and mom's spaghetti at 1am. Can't say no to that.
  9. Not going to lie. I am in the same spot as @Fatima NMA. I'm Iranian but my tongue speaks arabic. There is some racism towards arabic speakers and arabs in general, however, what I do have noticed is that it has decreased in the last few years. For instance, many people in Tehran would look down on Iraqis. This was different for me last year. A restaurant employee actually handed me a hand and told me to do dua for him in Karbala. He thought I was Iraqi. On the other hand, I did also experience a pretty racist irani "group of friends" in the same trip last year. I don't want to sugarcoat everything, but there is some racism here and there one can expect. Living in places like Khuzestan, Qom, Mashhad or Dowlat Abad could make a big difference for Iraqis or other Arabs. To the OP @Abu Nur: If you want urban and (man-made) nature, Tehran or any other big city could be an option. There are many parks in Tehran you can enjoy. Especially in the Northern part. However, Northern Tehran is quite expensive. One can be hit with prices of a few billion tooman for an apartment. Not only is housing expensive in Tehran, also the food prices such as fruits, veggies, meat and other products are much more expensive than Qom for instance. Northern Tehran is also more "liberal" in case that is important What also is possible is living in Shomal Iran (Northern Iran). Places like Chalus are often used as a vacation spot for many Tehranis. The weather is humid but not too hot and dry as Tehran and there is the Caspian Sea. I am not sure about any good business model for places like Chalus, but opening a restaurant/take away could be a nice way to earn an income especially since many Tehranis at the end of the week leave Tehran to visit Chalus and other places around the Caspian Sea. It has lots of green nature. An ideal place.
  10. If I am allowed to build upon @Abu Hadi's words, I believe a very crucial thinking step is to consider the true nature of our material beings. Living in a material dominated world, we build desires that are related to this material world. We have yet to see a place that breaks this dominating material factor. When we look at the prophets and the Imams, we see that loads of times they handle situation and events differently than us. Their knowledge about the other life is so much more than ours making them not valuing this material existence. Desires and thoughts we have now are build and received by the environment we are currently in which is dictated by lots of parameters such as: materials, spirituality, knowledge, education, economics etc. When we change environments, we tend to take a different perspective on life. Can you imagine a world which is not dictated by time? Time which is a crucial factor alongside our material being is hard to not think of. We cannot think of how a system would work in which going from point A to B takes no time, but merely a distance which even there is traveled instantaneously. The question arrives again, what is "instantaneously"? For us here in this material world it means that it takes no to hardly any time. Does this "rule" mean the same in Jannah? Can we visualize Jannah like a place build out of atoms? But atoms deteriorate over time. Again, imagining jannah or your thoughts or desires there are hard. Even in regards of the males getting more than one wife. Will males still have this desire? Or was this more a way for Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى to describe how good jannah is for the material human state? For the material influenced mind? Will we still have the same desires of wanting to become a good wife/husband, a good dad/mom, have a good career etc.? Here we have to become something indicating time again. In jannah, the desires of time will probably fade away. The desire to willing to become something or achieve something will fade away since it consumes time. Can a finite body understand an infinite soul? We are a mix of which we both cannot understand fully. We do not understand the finite body completely, nor can we explain the infinite soul. We can only know that whatever comes up in our imagination is actually even better in the jannah realm just like what @ali_fatheroforphans said.
  11. Even though this was short, it was still a good read honestly. I have been going through some heavy emotional stuff lately and this hit the spot. Instead of worrying for a person, leave it up to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى to dictate that person's life to become more fruitful and better. My worries will not change that person's life.
  12. I have several times tackled your arguments directly and have given you clear answers and examples. Sadly, you have responded once to which I again have debunked your arguments. If you are unable to provide evidence or a much more logical approach to the problem, you can say so and we will call it a day. Cherry-picking to whom you will respond isn't going to prove your point at all. Then again comes the argument that you do not posses the tactical and military knowledge to base your arguments on. And not only do you lack this, you are also unaware of what is happening at the very moment. You do not receive any real life intel feed nor behind the scenes documents. This states that you are in no position to talk about "better methods" to kill less civilians or criticize the current methods used as you have no knowledge of better ones available. Those experts there know what is better and available and thus they act accordingly. I quote from a different thread which backs up my argument: If you are willing to criticize a method, you should be able to provide a better alternative or a solution. You have been unable to do this during these whole 6 pages. Can you tackle a teacher without giving a solution to the cause? You cannot. You have come back with giving a few examples of wars where BBs claimed lives of people. I have come with examples of how missiles have devastated entire countries. As a respected and big marja' has given his opinion on the matter, I stand fully behind it. One may go and debate this marja' directly in order to change my thoughts. There is no need to discuss a certain matter with someone who is unwilling to go further in the debate. I thank you for your replies and wish you all prosperity. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى accept your duas and prayers.
  13. How can you claim that the current methods are questionable, or in other threads, "indiscriminate way of using weaponry" while you yourself do not have the knowledge nor any better method available? Criticizing without having something better does not contribute to anything. Someone who legitimately criticizes someone actually has a solution to the problem. You still do not have the knowledge in regards of what is better. Watching a few BBs youtube videos doesn't make you an expert on what should be used and whatnot. There are hundreds of Hezbollah as well as IRGC experts on the battlefield in Syria. They all have high influence in the battle tactics of the Syrian army. They advise generals with their decisions. Do you think I will believe them, or some internet stranger, sitting probably thousand of miles outside of the battlefield, unable to present solutions as well as directly tackle arguments?
  14. The foreign policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran has been set to meet the criteria of the IRGC, which is under Ayatollah Khamanei's command. Thus, Ayatollah Khamenei receives much more inside as outside information about Syria. On top of that, Hezbollah and IRGC soldiers are fighting the rebels at the very moment. They also gather intel and send it to the IRGC command centres in Iran. The Ayatollah is always kept up to date. Thus, he has much more knowledge on the situation than any of us here at this very moment.
