  1. Fiqh handles Akhlaq too though! E.g. it's haram to backbite, lie (unless you are in danger), etc. I think what you meant was people who practice the ritual aspects of Islam (namaz, fasting, etc) but do not observe Akhlaq.
  2. Men, as a general rule, get attracted by similar sexual characteristics that are present in women. This is the way Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created men and woman so that their nature is to get attracted to one another's characteristics, and not get attracted to other species, inanimate objects etc. These characteristics include the face, body, voice, and several other things that the maraja have classified. The Qur'an orders believing women to not display as much of their beauty as they can and to reserve it for their husbands only. So it is not appropriate to wear revealing clothing, or clothing which will emphasise beauty features, when you are around non mahram men. As to the objection raised about men being attracted by different things, this is not really relevant because 1) men are generally attracted by the same characteristics, albeit to various degrees 2) the duty of the believing woman is to be modest, she is not responsible for someones perversion, since their duty is lowering the gaze. It is also possible for some men to be attracted to modest women more than those that wear revealing clothing. This does not enter in the category of "attracting the attention of men" because that category is based on direct lust/sexual attraction.
  3. Yes Ottomans were much more connected to the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) than other Sunnis. Many of them acknowledge the 12 Imams. Still it should be remembered that they killed many Shias as well in their history. Here is a Ottoman Sufi tariqa (Sunni) commemorating Ashura:
  4. I would say that there is a difference between 'attractive' clothing in the sense of looking respectable, tidy, well-groomed, etc. and 'attractive' in the sense of attracting the attention of the opposite gender, provocative, revealing, etc. Of course the maraja say the first type is permissible and the second type is impermissible if it will attract the attention of men in terms of lust. For example it is impermissible to wear tight-fitting clothes in the presence of non-mahram men (I.e. those clothes which reveal the contours of the body). And of course the best of hijab is demonstrated by the Chief of all the Women of the World, Lady Fatima al-Zahra, peace be upon her, who wore a “head-to-toe” completely covering Aba'.
  5. I think it is equal for both men and women - the standard of measurement is the Divine Law in Islam according to their Marja, and their inner heart sincerity. Since only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows someone's heart, we have to judge by the Divine Law in Islam. The Divine Law says women should wear the hijab, so this is definitely a standard of measurement. Of course, some things can stop her even if she wants to wear hijab, for example family or work circumstances. So these should also be considered. As for men, the standard is also the Divine Law. E.g. is he shaving his beard, touching non-mahrams, earning a haram income, not lowering his gaze, not praying his prayers etc. All these are red flags for men because he is disobeying the Divine Law whether he knows it or not. So I would say the standard of measuring religiosity in men and women is the same. Ws.
  6. Lol I guess you are right, that's the first thing that came to my mind about the Ottomans. Probably there are more professional documentaries/books online about this as well, maybe someone else will recommend one.
  7. Yes, but it's also available on netflix
  8. There is a series on netflix about it called Resurrection Ertuğrul. As a Turkish Shia, I would say the Ottomans were nawasibs. However, they were probably better than all the other caliphates.
  9. This might be the reason why they are not coming up: Though I sympathize to why they've shut it down. Thousands of propaganda items are being pushed into Iran right now, not to mention the puppet spy groups inside Iran which are fueling the protests and receiving orders through the internet.
  10. I agree I usually rely mostly on PressTV but they haven't reported anything about this so far unfortunately...
  11. @Mohammadi_follower Are you in Iran? Are the protests as bad as the MEK propaganda videos make it out to be? I think that these protests will probably die out in a day or so, just like the last time it happened.
  12. Of course, terrorist organization MEK is also twiteeting propaganda furiously:
