  1. ......and here I was cutting back on the chocolate.....
  2. You don't throw away anything arbitrarily. You be truly critical and skeptical - you take everything, step back and look at both the small and big picture. The small-picture itself can be the most deceiving to the Ego however. Even though any atheists would scoff at me saying it (well it's kinda guaranteed by category anyway) but if I wasn't critical and skeptical of myself and my beliefs in every respect, I would not have ended up becoming a Muslim in the first place.
  3. Amen! Your post is so true. Also, I came across a video from the "Sunni Defense" myself actually, a few days ago, it was an antiShia video. I couldn't make heads or tails of it, it was literally a great example of Poe's Law. I read somewhere else they (Sunni Defense) were Wahhabis, so the amount of hostility (and in the comment section) was far less than a surprise. Some people are just full to the brim with Ego and prejudice though, it's sad to see but it's the world we live in.
  4. Yes, I know about the Alawites and Alevis myself (I find them interesting) but your answer does bring clarify, in a sense, why the average Sunni that doesn't understand much about Shi'ism would conflate something like us Twelvers with them. But then, there was a period when Ismailis were larger than us, yet they seem to have drifted off into obscurity (within Sunni discourse I mean). But yeah, when it comes to the Shirk topic Sunnis gobbling up Wahhabi/Salafi propaganda about us using misunderstandings of Alawites and Alevis treated falsely as synonymous (in the historical development your quote highlights) does make sense.
  5. Yes it's a common, but strange, but still common misconception/confusion and I don't really know where people get the misconception/confusion from.
  6. Welcome back. Hmm...anyone have a screenshot or something of what it used to look like? I'm curious
  7. وَ‌ذَ‌ر‍ِ‍‌ ‌الَّذ‍ِ‍ي‍‍نَ ‌اتَّ‍‍خَ‍‍ذُ‌و‌ا‌ ‌دِينَهُمْ لَعِبا‌ ً‌ ‌وَلَهْو‌ا‌ ً‌ ‌وَ‍‍غَ‍‍رَّتْهُمُ ‌الْحَي‍‍َ‍اةُ ‌ال‍‍دُّ‌نْ‍‍يَا‌ ۚ‌وَ‌ذَكِّ‍‍رْ‌ بِهِ ‌أَ‌نْ تُ‍‍بْ‍‍سَلَ نَفْس‌‍ٌ‌ بِمَا‌ كَسَبَتْ لَ‍‍يْ‍‍سَ لَهَا‌ مِ‍‌‍نْ ‌د‍ُ‍‌ونِ ‌اللَّ‍‍هِ ‌وَلِيٌّ‌ ‌وَلاَ‌ شَف‍‍ِ‍ي‍‍عٌ‌ ‌وَ‌إِ‌نْ تَعْدِلْ كُلَّ عَ‍‍دْل‍ٍ‌ لاَ‌ يُؤْ‍‍خَ‍‍ذْ‌ مِ‍‌‍نْ‍‍هَ‍‍ا‌ ۗ ‌أ‍ُ‍‌وْل‍‍َ‍ائِكَ ‌الَّذ‍ِ‍ي‍‍نَ ‌أُبْ‍‍سِلُو‌ا‌ بِمَا‌ كَسَبُو‌ا‌ ۖ لَهُمْ شَ‍رَ‍‌ابٌ‌ مِ‍‌‍نْ حَم‍‍ِ‍ي‍‍مٍ‌ ‌وَعَذ‍َ‍‌ابٌ ‌أَل‍‍ِ‍ي‍‍م‌‍ٌ‌ بِمَا‌ كَانُو‌ا‌ يَكْفُرُ‌ونَ "Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world. But proclaim (to them) this (truth): that every soul delivers itself to ruin by its own acts: it will find for itself no protector or intercessor except Allah. if it offered every ransom, (or reparation), none will be accepted: such is (the end of) those who deliver themselves to ruin by their own acts: they will have for drink (only) boiling water, and for punishment, one most grievous: for they persisted in rejecting Allah." - Surah 6:70
  8. I got him a lot in my youtube recommendations for some reason last year and couldn't for the life of me work out why I'd be getting him of all people in my suggestions. He's just an attention-seeking Sunni without much anything worth hearing as far as I'm concerned. His content and debates (like many of his debate opponents too) are just shallow, clickbait, controversy-feeding nonsense. People like him and the other loud-mouths he debates aren't trying to make the world a better place (heck, they're very sub-par theologians or philosophers), they're just taking up space on the youtube servers looking for more instant likes and more controversy - Y'know, inciting his fans to then go out and take on his own prejudices.
  9. You've said it very well. I'd also add that like pornography, the ultimate role it has in society is a destruction of the family. It appears innocent on the surface, what could be more natural than sex right? but things are way more serious (and aren't as simple) than that when you get down the specifics and the way that ideas perpetuate a culture. What we have over in the mainstream Western world is people who can't commit, people who share nothing in common and people who have no sense of self-discipline and also people who end up loosing any sense of value to their sexuality (were it just gets thrown around as a inclination-based pleasure rather than anything personally or spiritually significant). Sex is a holy thing and I wish more people these days would realize it. Sex is also a powerful and very beautiful thing. But the insentient obsession with it in the West definitely has turned it into a carnal, capitalistic (hence prostitution) downfall of family.
  10. Imam Ali (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), with Nahjul Balagha Sermon four:
  11. Yeah, Freemasonry itself is Monistic and about self-apotheosis, identical ideology with Luciferianism and Satanism. It bases it's structures of inverting Biblical symbolism and the stories of the Bible in combination with a syncreticism of Jewish Kabbalah, Egyptian, Greek, with even Hindu elements to spread it's own doctrine. Freemasonry dates it's origins to the Knights Templar (like most Occult initiatic Orders), as a lot of Pagan Occult knowledge was being shared as a result of the Crusades. After the event of Sabbatai Zevi (a very controversial figure who claimed to be the Jewish Messiah, who gained a massive following. His movement was incredibly antinomian. heretical, anti-God etc) and Jacob Frank (his successor who claimed to be his reincarnation, who was equally as controversial), with Sabbatean Frankism, Adam Weishaupt's crypto-Sabbatean "Order of the Illuminati" basically co-opted Freemasonry as a means of spreading propaganda, basically an intelligence agency. Before Weishapt, Freemasonry was a little more innocent (at least in terms of political conspiracy) even though what it teaches is not in harmony with the three Abrahamic religions. But due to the influence of crypto-Sabbateanism using Freemasonry as a vessel to spread propaganda and build intelligence networks to influence the wider world - it gave birth to, and made Zionism, Marxism/Communism and Darwinism thrive, as well as providing a basis for the structure of the United States to be formed. Most politicians you could think of have an involvement with it (or a similar Order connected to it, like Skull&Bones), Media, even Nasa, famous Scientists, historical figures in general. When it comes to judging who's to blame though (Sabbateanism, Freemasonry etc), it's hard to really know because lines are so blurred. But, Want to create Babylon again? well, Freemasonry was the best way for it to happen because of it's spread and it's already far into it's mission in 2019. Also, if that person you know is only a 2nd or 3rd degree, you can hardly consider him an authority on what it offers. He'd only be on the 'taste test' stage, the Freemasonry Degrees themselves start off very open-minded but as it elucidates more and more further up the degrees and different symbols and meanings of rituals become demystified, one's belief system (if they decide to continue in Freemasonry) becomes less and less what it was when they started and (again) closer to that Monistic self-apotheosis.
  12. I agree. One of the terrible consequences of Materialism has been that very strict lines have been drawn between the physical and consciousness, were consciousness is merely seen as a function of the physical. It's a very damning dogma to the potentiality of Scientific growth and causes much friction between different forms of science (like neurology to quantum physics to biologists to chemists etc). Consciousness becomes quite often the heat of the debate because it truly does transcend the material (the soul, that is, in our terms) and so does one's awareness of the spiritual realm between Earth and heaven - "dimensions" they're often called. Materialists will just say that every and any kind of 'supernatural' experience one may have (including alien abductions, within modern myth...which I believe are non-physical) are simply just hallucinations - taking on hallucination in the strictly materialistic view of being non other than delusion caused by the brain. So that dogma will automatically discount the fact that people often hallucinate the exact same things, experiences that occur often between people of many different continents over extended periods of time. Not to forget that there is also the very mysterious phenomenon of the "shared hallucination". There are also various "syndromes" and mental "disorders" that occur in certain types of people that hint at how our physical brain may be merely a filter or transmitter for our soul's experience in this world - being that we are deliberately made by Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to only perceive a small percent of what is actually going on in this world (remembering that what we can physically touch is just one aspect of what is "there"), then also taking into account the whole debate over "dark matter". Bonnet Syndrome is one fascinating example, where people nearing dementia (which is basically where the body's receptors go back to being like a child, alluding to how the Soul may be mostly gone from the brain) see tiny people walking around and meet all kinds of people that aren't physically there. I used to be an Occultist way back before I converted to Islam and it is true that there are many, many types of rituals that you can perform (some over an extended period of time) that will connect your awareness with entities and so forth, and people often receive transmissions with entities as well. Occultism itself IS a Scientific practice in essence and there is a reason why it forms the basis of Science, yet there also are reasons why entity summoning etc is vehemently avoided being talked about at all within Mainstream Science itself. If it was accepted in current Scientific world though, it would affect the current Globalist agenda too much, so it's left in the fringe but it remains "there" so to speak. - keeping in mind, that Occultism itself is oneself seeking out supernatural experiences, through strict processes of ritual etc which is a different part of the spectrum to one encountering a Djinn for instance unprovoked. Part of our entire purpose in this life is to recognize the illusion of this world and to not live for the world, but to live for and towards Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) (57:20), so at some point as a Muslim we have to accept that there is far more going on around us than we realize but we have the free will to choose to follow Allah and keep our minds/hearts pure, or not. The mysteries of this life aren't as important to follow as the Qur'an and the Sunnah, but being able to recognize them for what they are is the best place to start. For one though, materialism and Islam (as well as other serious religion that believes that life is more complex than the physical) does not work together!
  13. From these two Hadith in Kitab Al-Kafi: Both (related) Hadith generated a thought in me, regarding the Qur'an itself. We already (as Shia) know very well there is both the Inner and Outer layers of the Qur'an (Batin and Zahir) and how important the role of the Twelve Imams and Ahlbayt are (peace be upon them all) to understanding it. The thing that interests be about those two Hadith, in relation to how Imam Ali (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) had a complete copy of the Qur'an before Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) died, is that there is a truly tangible yet ineffable inter-relation between the Outer Qur'an and both the Ahlbayt and the Twelve Imams, an Inner reflection of the Qur'an. Both reflect a divine sublimity, one being our Eucharist, the holy book itself which lives through us and has no time and place, not 610CE nor 2019CE but both. The Prophet, Ahlbayt, The Imams being it's wisdom lived through fourteen incredible chosen people, all with the Book of the Qur'an itself blending together revealing the pure light (Nur) itself experienced through every true, genuine Muslim that has ever lived. Living testaments to the divine, transcendent, Unicity of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Not to knock Sunnis too much but there is an essential quality that their side of succession doesn't answer for, coming from the side of Ali (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). I mention this in this paragraph, as the quoted Hadith really hint towards the reality of the Qur'an truly being embodied by two dual sides that form perfect unity with each other, I believe the relationship is symbiotic. They (Ahlbayt/Imams) were the Gates to the city of the Knowledge given to Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) by Allah, now (until the Mahdi comes) their sayings and lives are the Keys that unlock the Living Qur'an after their body's deaths. It makes sense with the Imam Mahdi (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), that he will bring the renewal, the overwhelming fullness of the Qur'an received by Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), Ali (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and the rest of the Imams back to the Ummah in a way unimaginable and what we do know about the Ultimate Reality of Allah saw will be increased! Alhamdulillah! Subhanallah brothers and sisters

    And propagating ideologies to the masses, conditioning the masses to Dajjal-ian mentalities and desensitizing people to any and everything evil. It's a piece of the Media cake too though, which is an even bigger stem.
