  1. Aslam Alaikum brothers and sisters, As much as I dislike getting into these kinds of topics. I touched a persistent need to bring this to the table to clear things up for myself and for others that may have the same question as well. I've always been wondering about this since I first went to Iraq on Feb 2017. However, let me begin by introducing myself just to give you an idea of the gravity of this situation. I'm Iranian who was born and brought up in the state of Kuwait although it might suffer from the same issues other countries have in that region in my eyes it is a wonderful country just like Iraq, Iran, Britain and the rest of the world. Given that I had lived there, particularly, in my childhood before we move to England, hence, I speak Arabic in Kuwaiti dialect! So, on Feb 2017 my grandmother and I decided to go for ziyarat and so we did along with my sister and brother in law to Karbala, Najaf and Baghdad! it was really beyond what words can describe it made us grow spiritually! I wish that I could just stay there forever. Anyway, me being in Iraq made it obvious that I should make use of my language I never thought that this would cause me any problems! initially I didn't feel anything till the day when we went shopping in Najaf and I was translating to Arabic for my grandmother who only speaks Farsi, a man went off on me and started shouting and cursing me saying things about a port I couldn't understand at the time as my Arabic isn't that good either. What I did find out later that he was talking about a port that Iraq and Kuwait have a dispute over. What I couldn't understand is how this relates to me as I don't even live there? Honestly, I came across many that were extremely respectful and kind not only on our trip also in England everyday. However, this incident as well as other comments I found on this forum which I dunno how to comprehend like "Kuwait = Iraq anyway" that made me feel a bit insecure towards our Iraqi brothers and avoid speaking in Arabic as much as possible even at the masjid! Therefore my question is, is there enmity between Iraqi Kuwaiti people? If there is then why religion isn't helping here? What about social justice? Is it reasonable to develop hostility against each other and at the same time claim to love and follow a man who was utterly compassionate and cried even for his murderers! What's even worse is that we have given everything a religious touch therefore comes responsibility to own up to our claims otherwise why act religious? And the same goes for all other issues particularly in the tagleed field which many, but not all, have got wrong Before I conclude here I would like to set clear that I'm not arguing against/for. Personally, I don't even ask people where they're from? I find it pointless some times. This is just a thing I got caught up in and would like to hear some more opinions about. Thanks a lot for reading this and feel free to express yourself and your ideas
  2. Having issues at home, feeling lonely or different all these feelings are normal, I personally have been through I won't get to that. However, my only advice is to keep going and stand still before all challenges till you receive your degree and NEVER EVER turn to people for help or try to become someone you are not. Whenever you suffer just think of Ahlulbayt and their suffering for the sake of justice! Your suffering is no where near what people living in wars and poverty are suffering from. All the best!
  3. You are right mate maybe I didn't communicate my thoughts very well although if you can recall the state Shia were in before the Islamic Republic? Also, given the current fragile situation of the middle east! The Islamic Republic clearly emphasise the Shi'ism existence whether we like it or not.
  4. Some people still don't realise what the islamic republic of Iran is really about... Good morning A nation, which has been under economic siege for over three decades starting off with an eight years of a fierce war! Yet, it managed to not only survive but to flourish literally to the point where they broke the hand of the hegemony power! Well, it might be true that Iran at times cannot offer the level of comfort other governments do to their people, but ask yourself for a minute. Is it a general rule to flourish? Personally after living in Europe for quite a time now I found that many people lose, maybe not financially, but in respect of their principles and identity, which is worse After all if you ask Iran, I imagine they'd reply back " What worse could happen? " The systematic attacks against the Islamic republic of Iran are silly. Just wish if some people could realise that Iran is probably the only reason Shia are still exist particularly in the Arabian peninsula!
  5. Salaam brother, Unfortunately, you did not deliver the release perfectly your reference clearly states that the parliament of the state of Kuwait (did not) accept to refer to Shia sect rules in civil court regarding family laws to be precise. In addition that only 3 out of 37 accepted the suggestion of Shia recognition (Arabic is my mother tongue)! You should be able to see read that clearly in the fourth line from the bottom of the article
  6. Salaam everybody, So, I have a few questions feel free to participate with your opinion The first question is what do most Shia think about the attempt to know someone with the intention to marry them online? The second question is will you marry someone from a different background with different mother tongue apart from English of course? I know this might be s controversial one, plus I'm not sure if it has been discussed already in this forum since I'm new here Hello. The reason I'm asking these questions because I myself had an awful experience through these online dating sites, in addition, it might be difficult for some to look up through traditional ways due to living far away from any communities and there's the barrier of timidity to initiate this topic, hence I think there must be a tool that is dedicated to Shia communities particularly in the western world. However, it should be strictly regulated in terms of background verification, matching and so on and I made the decision to start this project. If you share a similar or another opinion please feel free to vote in the poll I have created and express your feelings here in the comment section towards this topic and suggest solution alternatives...etc
