  1. Hello everyone, 

    I’m leaving ShiaChat permanently due to unfair biases, bullying, and unislamic/toxic attitudes.

    I’m sure you all know that this site is extremely biased toward women and ruthless to those who are not “perfect” enough in Islam. This forum has encouraged incessant bullying and verbal abuse to take place and I will no longer stand for this. That is why, after 3 years of being an active member on this forum, I have decided to leave permanently.

    This online community has failed to be of an encouraging and positive place. Instead, it’s home to those who ridicule and shame and bully others—those who have no lives and hide behind their computer screens, forgetting that we are real people with real lives, emotions, and struggles that are not to be made fun of by the Ummah.

    If you are a bully and you call yourself a Muslim, then you need to re-evaluate what it means to be Shia. Being a Shia is not just beating your chest for Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) or fasting during the month of Ramadan. You must be willing to treat others well, year-round, 24/7. Not just when it’s convenient. Maybe it’s time to reflect during this month and own up to ill-treatment of others.

      Hmm, thats upsetting that you have felt that way. Not sure if you will see this, you may come on as a guest, so, if you do see this by any chance, Im sorry that you had to deal with any unnecessary comments and/or bias, that may have personally affected you. The online world on average, isn't really the brightest place to be on/around. 

      I pray you that you find better ways to handle everything that comes your way. And I pray for your success and happiness. As for the bullies, I think that people are more brazen to speak out truly what their views are knowing theres no physical consequence for it.

      Stay strong and move on, sister. Take care. Theres more good then the bad.

    Have you written a letter to our Imams before?

      Sellam, yeah actually I have. It really puts some things into perspective when you try it and have pure intentions. 

      I think whether you write a letter or talk to our mediators, if the intention is pure, then they will answer back to you for sure.
