    His lectures were so helpful in making my decision to convert to Shi’a Islam.

    You're joking right? Don't tell me you are seriously here voicing support for the Saudi Royal Family and Baathist Iraq on SHIAchat.

    Wholehearted Shi'a got a reaction from Sirius_Bright in Any proof the Prophet / Ahlulbayt 'invite you' ?   
    My first experience with shi’a Islam before I converted was being invited to go to Ashura with a shi’a friend from high school and at that point I really only had a little understanding of Islam. Like @Islandsandmirrors has said it’s not about literally being invited by the prophet or the Imams. I felt like I was gifted to learn more about Imam Hussain by Imam Hussain himself not directly and physically but I guess you could say spiritually.  I got to experience his sacrifice, his story and reason for resistance as a Christian, I beat my chest as a Christian for Hussain and Masha’Allah I became a Muslim not long after and my first experience was and always will be with Imam Hussain. 
    Labaik ya Hussain

    A Sayed is a Muslim who can prove after claiming he is a descendant of the holy prophet (saw) especially through his son in law Imam Ali (as) and his son Imam Husayn Ibn Ali. (as)

    Christians, Atheists and Mormans are all in my friend circle. When we discuss our religions we actually enjoy learning of someone else's perspective and view of life including those of my friends who doubt the existence of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى

    These people are idiots and now bigots will use this to showcase Islam as a backward religion. The woman in question didn't even say anything negative about the prophet but only stood up for what she believed in after being insulted by people who I will refrain from calling Muslim. I'm glad Pakistan's supreme court didn't bend the knee to Wahhabi pressure but instead focused on evidence and resolving the matter.

    Wholehearted Shi'a reacted to Islandsandmirrors in Female submissiveness   
    A big issue we are facing is the confusion of culture with religion. Culture expects women to be submissive to men, particularly in the Middle East. While a man, according to Islam, has a degree of responsibility over his family, women are not encouraged to be submissive to men in Islam. As in, if your husband tells you to become a housewife and discourages you from working — that’s not of Islam. 
    Islam is not a religion that encourages submissiveness to any man, ideology, fashion statement. Islam is about submitting to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. Didn’t Lady Khadijeh (AS) work and have her own business? So why are we breeding a backwards mentality and calling it Islam?

    Wholehearted Shi'a reacted to Sumerian in Globalism vs Nationalism   
    There is a struggle going on in the West between nationalists and globalists, and the differences seem to be based on differences on immigration, role of multinational organisations with respect to national sovereignty, trade deals, cultural struggles between traditional values and progressive values, political correctness, race and religion.
    We have seen that people like George Soros have spent billions of dollars furthering the globalist agenda, and of course billions of dollars have been spent on the opposing side. What should we make of this?

    Wholehearted Shi'a reacted to ali_fatheroforphans in Negative thinking patterns of lonely people   
    Salam,
    People who've been lonely for a long period of time tend to form many negative patterns of thinking which hinders their ability to form new relationships. This is something which isn't really taught to anyone, especially those who have formed this negative pattern of thinking - as it becomes part of our subconscious brain.
    Here are the negative patterns which you need first identify and then consciously change if you want to widen your social circle. I'm not an expert in psychology or anything, this is just casual advice I feel I could give to others.
    (1) You're embarrassed to go to an event all alone, because you feel that you'll be judged for having no friends and being a loner. Life is not that simple where friends will be thrown at the doorstep of your house. There is absolutely nothing wrong when you turn up to an event in hope of making new friends. I personally enjoy rocking up to events alone, rather than with one friend who sticks with you the whole time. 
    (2) You're very tensed about every social interaction and also fear rejection. Since lonely people have less exposure to people in general, there is a chance that they'll exert a lot of pressure on themselves when interacting with others, if they do rock up to a social gathering. This won't help you when you meet new people, because you'll naturally be more anxious and tense.
    (3) You find it difficult to open up because you assume people will think less of you if they know that you're life is dull and boring. If someone asks you "what's your plan for the weekend?", you're like "ummm, just have some assignments to work on". You'll never be honest with them and will focus a lot on hiding it. It reaches the point where lonely people dread it when they get asked this simple question.
    Firstly, you need to be honest that you don't really have friends, and don't think that others are gonna judge you! Some people come to a city all alone. Just straight up say "I really wanna make new friends" or something along those lines.
    (4) You have this view that meeting like-minded people is very difficult. You'll always end up convincing yourself that this city is not for you, with lame excuses. You need to challenge this irrational belief because great people exist in every corner of the world, and it's just you who will find excuses to be alone.
