  1. Dear Brothers and Sisters, Assalamu Alaikum. I just thought I share here something important based on my personal experience and interactions. I I have researched a lot about Shia (Twelver Imams) and I must say, it is a nice, practical and natural denomination that fits with the lifestyle of common people (spiritually, physically, emotionally, etc.); however, some of the interesting insight that I have come across through my various interactions is that the majority of this denomination (which I personally met) do not practice or conform to what is being defined in the Twelver Imam rules
  2. Thank you sister. But I think I will rest my case as I lost hope in getting my point across.
  3. Salam Sister. I take your point and I concur with some of the things you said. However, I was emotionally soft and I have a very flexible and patient mindset.

  6. Although I find this brother's stance on his wife a bit extreme, I do partially symphatise with him. Some wifes don't look after themselves by gaining weight and ignoring their husband's urges for an intimate relationship and sex. What is the point of marriage if a wife becomes obese and she doesn't bother about her husband when he asks her to look good when he comes back from work.
