  1. My friend is a Muslim, but his parents are both Catholics, I’m asking this question on his behalf. My friend for a while was jobless, and was receiving aid (money) from his parents, he used half of his monthly aid and saved the rest. He recently found out that his parents money is partially acquired through unlawful (Islamic) means, is it permissible for him to spend that money on his needs with the probable chance that the money he has is halal ? what is sistanis ruling on this issue ? I even tried telling him to swap the money he has in exchange for the same amount from his fath
  2. Malaysia/ Indonesia were not one country but consisted of several kingdoms before European domination and Brunei happens to be one of them but with a weird border because much of their historical land was lost to Indonesia and Malaysia
  3. These plates were used during the first gulf war in the occupied territories of Kuwait.
  4. Because Iraqis have this delusional mindset that Kuwait is part of Iraq and was lost due to colonial rule, even though there is no proof of that, and it was nothing more than propaganda set by the Iraqi regime under king gazi in the 30s after Kuwait outright refused his proposal of completely taking over Kuwait, that propaganda was later carried on after the Iraqi monarchy was deposed. Despite the fact that Kuwait was established in 1613 and Iraq was carved out from ottoman turkey in 1922. Hell even Portugal and Greece have a stronger claim over Kuwait than Iraq
  5. Let’s assume this was true, how exactly did the vizier invite the mongols to attack, when Baghdad was already on the list of cities to be conquered or subjacated far before even the mongol army under hulagu was assembled ? At this point the abbasids were just a shadow of its former self and are no longer the mighty empire it was once was, the abbasids controlled half of Iraq and upper Kuwait and that was it. Even if by some miracle they managed to raise an army of 150k which equals the Mongolian army, there was no chance that they would win, few years earlier 30k mongol soldiers who were just
  6. As a person who has deeply researched about the mongol empire I can safely say the Shias had nothing to do with mongols, I don’t even know where this idea came from. During this year, Baghdad was the capital of the Abbasid caliphate and the Mongol invasion of Persia (Khwarezmian empire at the time) was completed successfully years ago which opened up Mongol expansion westwards. Hulagu who is the grandson of arguably the greatest military commander to walk the face of the Earth (Gengis Khan) was with his forces busy invading Anatolia (turkey), Hulagu sent an ultimatium to Al Mutasim (Abbasid Ca
  7. You’re right, but it wasn’t the abbasids themselves who turned the era into the golden age of Islam but it was the knowledge of the Persians and andalusians who did it. The city of Granada in Muslim Spain was the largest and most populated in Europe at that time, and there were more books in the Abbasid caliphate than there were in the entirety of Europe. And you must know that during this time, the abbasids just controlled half of Iraq and that’s it, their empire but not caliphate crumbled years prior, nobody denies their oppression but the mongol invasion was a dark age for Muslims, with the
  8. Mongol forces under Genghis Khan’s grandson, Hulagu brought the Abbasid caliph Al Muatism to his knees along with his caliphate. The once mighty empire is now a shadow of its former self, the once biggest and most technologically advanced city in the world Baghdad was raised to the ground, bringing the Islamic golden age to an end. The Euphrates turning black for three days from the sheer amount of books dumped into it from the House of wisdom, setting Human Civlization back by at least 500 years. What are your thoughts and feelings ?
  9. Any online books that tell us if it’s a good or bad Quran verse ?
  10. Are there Any free resources or fair priced resources online that teaches Persian ?
  11. They do answer, it just takes a few weeks till they reply.
  12. 1) Iran has been under sanctions since 1979, their economy is surviving, but without the support of oil they number of zeroes on their currency will increase (inflation). 2) Iraq has been independent for less than 100 years around the time oil was discovered there, before that it was apart of ottoman turkey and Safavid Persia 3) Absolute monarchies (Saudi, UAE, Oman) are less prone to instability/getting overthrown, compared to constitutional monarchies (Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar) where the emir is kept under control by parliament and can be deposed from the throne if majority vote from
  13. Yes they were able to generate billions through oil money, and I’m pretty sure that the hashemites didn’t get even nearly this much when they were ruling over hijaz. there won’t be another stable regime, turned out so well in Libya. Partition of Saudi Arabia is the most likely case and that’s a big IF it was able to stablilize after a civil war. And another big IF, there is someone able to bring down the Al Sauds, the Saudi national guard isn’t the typical national guard like in the west, they are loyal and only loyal to the House of saud not the state. And the national guard has outweigh
  14. It’s not as simple as you think, oil will be around much much longer, and the world will take a long time to revolutionize to the electric era. the current low oil prices is hurting the Saudis enough that their cash reserves are slowly being depleted. Let’s assume in a few years it’s going to be the end of the oil age, do you know how many hundreds of millions of people’s livelihood will be destroyed ? Iraq for example would never recover from the damages of the civil war and US invasion. It’s not only the Saudis who are going to go down, no matter how bad you think the Saudis are, but they ar
