  1. One of the hallmarks of DAESH is that they don't except anyone other that those with their own ideology (or their own sect if you will) as citizens in their so called Islamic State. Those who is not like them has either been killed or enslaved. As far as I know most Islamic societies through history has always allowed for non-Muslims to live there. Even if you use the Prophet(صلى الله عليه وسلم وعائلته) as an example or Amir al-Muminin(عليه السلام), they always allowed people from other religions to live among the Muslims as long as they did not present a direct physical treat. And it makes good sense because the Qur'an says that there is no compulsion in religion. So people don't have to convert if they don't want to. It is a matter between them and Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)
  2. An Islamic government is not necessarily the same as DAESH. And alhamdulillah Iran and Shia is not DAESH!
  3. The Shahnameh is mostly cultural even though Ferdowsī also put some religious ethics of a universal nature in it. Rumi and Hafez on the other hand is deeply spiritual and I have met Iranians who referred to the poetry of these Sufi poets when explaining their spirituality and belief in God. So it is not just cultural.
  4. In due respect I think you are wrong. There may not be any schools left, but I think that Sufi poets like Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī) and Hafez-e Shirazi is quite popular among Iranians.
  5. I am not Iranian, but I think that is a very bad idea. Iran is what it is because of its diversity. The Sunis, the Jews, the Christians and the Zoroastrians also believe in the same God as Shias. Why should they be excluded from society? If you would want to expel all non religious, then you would have to define "non-religious." It is my impression that even though many Iranians don't follow strict Shia teachings, hate hijab and love alcohol, most of them still believe in God under some form. And what about the Sufis? Maybe you would also like to blow up Persepolis the way Palmyra was blown up? That would be terrible.
  6. Yes I understood that and InshaAllah they will not do that, but I am still a little worried that they might do that in their arrogance anyway.
  7. InshaAllah that's never going to happen. InshaAllah!
  8. You mean like all the Salafis who went to live with DAESH who now live in refugee camps? I can to some extend understand that point of view and I think that Iran would be a much more pleasant place to live and a lot safer. At least until the Americans start bombing. I don't know if it would contribute all that much to the Iranian economy though. The more religious, the less you think of material things. I think that the reformist would probably be afraid that such emigrant would not vote for their parties. And I think that many Iranians would not like to have to many Arabs from Iraq and Saudi-Arabia living in their country.
  9. If causality doesn't apply to the existence of God then maybe reason doesn't apply to the creation in the way we can understand it. It may also just be that creating worlds is Gods idea of having fun. I think Woddy Allan once said: "Eternity is an awful long time. Especially towards the end."
  10. I think that Bashar al Assad is the best choice that the Syrian people has at the moment. I would not blame him from the current war. That is caused by United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Unfortunately there is a lot of propaganda out there and he has had a very bad press. I visited Syria back when his father was president. Then it was evident to me that the methods of the Syrian government was quite rough. It was though not any worse that the Turkish regime nor the actions of the Zionist entity. Both of which I visited at the same time. I would say that the Zionists was and still is way worse. In my experience anyway. As far as I understand Bashar al Assad inherited somewhat reluctantly his fathers regime. What ever methods still in use from that regime has to be attributed to Hafiz. It is my impression that he is a reasonable man that want to do good for all Syrians and not just him self and his family or the Alawites. But of cause Syria has the same problems that many other countries has with corruption and nepotism and that is a challenge. Both for the Syrian people and for Bashar. I think there is cause for optimism though. Hopefully the ordeal that the Syrian people has gone through for the past 8 years will pave the way for a more inclusive form of government with less nepotism, less corruption and softer methods than what his father used. Apart from that I think that for geopolitical reason it is important to keep and strengthen the alliance between Hezbollah, Syria, Iran and Iraq. Someone need to stop the Zionist entity and American imperialism. But of cause I am just a dump idealist who doesn't understand about money and power.

    Belief in God

    If I am not mistaken about astrophysics, I think that elementary particles pop into existence out of nowhere and back into nowhere all the time in empty space. Of cause that doesn't mean that Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) isn't creating them. In my limited understanding it actually appears to me as one of the very good arguments for Gods existence. Though for me I do not care so much about the physical evidence. The evidence that makes me certain of Gods existence is purely emotional.
  12. Forgive me for asking but how is "Real Shirk" different from "Shirk" and how does it relate to the "Major Shirk" and the "Minor Shirk"? Doesn't al-Nisā verse 48 say that all Shirk is unpardonable? I am still wondering if the implied meaning is assumed in al-Nisā verse 48 in order not to contradict Āl Imrān verse 31 or if it should be assumed in Āl Imrān verse 31 in order not to contradict al-Nisā verse 48. Something like: "Say, ‘If you love Allah, then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins [except Shirk], and Allah is [otherwise] all-forgiving, all-merciful .’"?
  13. Yes I hope that is the case inshallah, but the semantics of the word "unpardonable" makes it confusing. So I decided to read up on it and it appears from al-Nisā verse 48 that Shirk is indeed "unpardonable." In al-Nisā vers 48 it does not say in clear text that there is an exception for those who "surrender themselves to Allah and die as a Muslim." At best this will have to be an implied meaning. Āl Imrān verse 31 does clearly say that our sins are forgiven on conversion, so I guess that the implied meaning is assumed in al-Nisā verse 48 in order not to contradict Āl Imrān verse 31. al-Nisā verse 48: Indeed Allah does not forgive that any partner should be ascribed to Him, but He forgives anything besides that to whomever He wishes. And whoever ascribes partners to Allah has indeed fabricated [a lie] in great sinfulness. Āl Imrān verse 31: Say, ‘If you love Allah, then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful.’
  14. Does this mean that Hindus shouldn't bother converting to Islam, because their Polytheism will never be forgiven and they will be thrown into hell fire regardless? It is written in Qur'an that "Shirk is unpardonable sin" . It is a warning to those people who are practicing polytheism. so they take heed of the warning and surrender themselves to Allah and die as a Muslim. Forgive me for nitpicking here, but to my limited logic it sounds like that if "Shirk is unpardonable" then "surrendering oneself to Allah and dying as a Muslim" will not pardon the Shirk that person has all ready done. The word "unpardonable," I think, means something that can not be pardoned under any circumstances. Not even by surrendering to Allah and becoming a Muslim.
  15. Do you mean that believing in the concept of "original sin" is Polytheism? This was the Christian theology of Paul. Does this mean that Hindus shouldn't bother converting to Islam, because their Polytheism will never be forgiven and they will be thrown into hell fire regardless?
