  1. Mahjjah is like the only anti Shia site that can offer a sensible discourse, but still they are quite deceptive, but better than the rest of the lot
  2. Just to reinstate my position, I am not some bigitod Islamaphobe or some ex-Muslim I am simply trying to convey the fact that Islam hasn't been spread solely on Trade and Dawah, but rather early Islamic conquests had a huge hand in the spread of Islam, which no historian will disagree with Also, this is perfectly normal for any religion, and Islam is no exception Just in case anyone may have misunderstood as to what my personal opinion is on the spread of Islam Salam un Alaykum
  3. Perhaps you should read what I wrote earlier again, I didn't just state "That is how the word works" Yes perhaps, if you could show me Buddhism conquering other lands, then I'll gladly change it Parroting? Perhaps you have me confused with some ex Muslim or atheist, I used to believe in the whole "Islam was not spread by the sword" narrative, until I realized to understand other people's viewpoints instead of applying a one sided bias, only then did I realize that Islamic history isn't all butterflies and rainbows Are you going to simply throw aside all of the conquests
  4. W Salam! Spreading politically and being spread religiously are interchangeable terms, it's simple, you take over a certain area of land, and you convert them to your religion, or otherwise they throw you out, it's just how the world works, I didn't create the system Oh it definitely was, so was every other religion, like I said, it's just how the word works I would be that quick to single our the Safavids or the Saudis that quickly if I were you, forced conversions were a know thing among almost all Islamic empires, including the Ummayeds, Abbasids, Ottomans, Safavids, et
  5. Brother I'm not denying that Trade and Dawah spread Islam greatly, indeed they did, but there is absolutely no denying that the conquests by Islamic empires were the main reason behind the spread of Islam Now don't get me wrong, the phrase "Spread by the Sword" seems to sound a bit harsh, but in reality there is no Major religion(except for like Buddhism probably lol) that has not been spread by sword or conquest, it is only natural for such things to happen (Also keep in mid the Jizya also played a factor, for non religious people, converting to save a bit of cash was worth it)
  6. Question: Can I use cracked apps , which I have not done myself? Answer: If someone else has cracked the app, you can use it. Question: Is it permissible to sell pirated programs, DVDS, and software? Answer: If it is against the law, it is not permissible but you can use them. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01153/#25288 You should ask your Marja
  7. Not exactly sure on what grounds you are calling this book nothing, I think it is brilliant, but no mater, there is more https://www.al-islam.org/glance-life-holy-prophet-islam https://www.al-islam.org/life-muhammad-prophet-sayyid-saeed-akhtar-rizvi And one of my personal favorites, and one that I think you will enjoy as well: https://www.al-islam.org/hayat-al-qulub-vol-2-muhammad-baqir-majlisi This entire volume is dedicated soley to the life of The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) by Allamah Baqir al Majlisi(rh) himself!
  8. Whatever the case is, it is no different even for Sunnis, meaning anyone who isn't unjust(female) is an Imam, which I don't think has ever happened
  9. Still doesn't negate the fact that Islamic warriors fought lands and the population slowly converted to Islam, and yes, trade and Dawah did affect the spread of Islam alot, the beuty of our faith did attract people, but let's be real here, the main reason as to why people converted was due to those conquests, let's just face the facts here.
  10. C'mon you don't really believe that do you? Literally every religion has been spread by the sword, and Islam is no different, whether that be sunni empires like The Ummayeds, Abbasids, The Ottomans, or Shia empires like the Safavids, Fatimids It is not wrong to say Islam has been spread by the sword, because that is the case for every other religion
  11. In the sense that they are either ignorant of the truth and are spreading falsehood, or they are decivers, and they know the truth but still continue to spread falsehood, which can be said to us vice verse
  12. Yes, but he is only pointing out the traditions that both Shias and Sunnis share in common, all the traditions that he referenced to Sunni books are all found in authentic Shia texts, if you scroll and click on the numbers next to the reference, you will see the following traditions: “I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is its Gate, so whosoever wishes to access this City, then let him do so through its Gate " For whoever I am his master and leader, then Ali is his master and leader too. O Lord support whoever supports Ali, and oppose whoever opposes him. " I leave with ye the tw
  13. If that is the case then I apologize, I failed to understand whom exactly he was referring to
  14. Sure, if I get the chance I will, but more likely than not, they will agree with what Br. Toyib says
  15. Yeah and Sunnis don't? It is not unnatural for a sect of 250 million to have a couple of people after the green bucks You may keep this thought of yours to yourself, and we say the same about you and your scholars
