  1. While this can be very frustrating at the same time I think you have to understand that the offices of the marjas are not that advanced. If you knew how the offices work then you would realise why the answers come in Farsi/Arabic or why the answers are vague. Ask someone who has worked in the office of a marja and you will see what I mean then.
  2. Source In a private economy, businesses, with the support of government-driven incentives, will, if left unattended, naturally sway government in their favour → buy off politicians/legislatures → protect certain industries and/or companies at the expense of others → culminate in the growth of monopolies and cartels. Government, to me, does not seem to operate independently of private interests, so when certain private interests complain about government regulation, they really imply, correctly, that government caters to certain industries and/or sectors at the expense of others, while sma
  3. Yes, I acknowledge that there are differing traditions and narrations on the matter of class. My main point is that human beings tend to place their material interests ahead of their spiritual obligations. As a result, class tends to supersede and/or act on religion rather than vice versa. History shows this well. Incentives play a significant role in determining which type of economic system, applied to a particular context, would maximise social mobility, equitability, and transparency. One would likely look for a system that would benefit the producers (masses) more than the consumers/distr
  4. Source Source, pp. 33–4 Source, p. 10 Source So, according to these narrations, most of the Prophets and other Infallible Representatives were disproportionately Semitic, that is, of the line of Shem, and supposedly Ham and Japheth were punished for their sins against Prophet Noah by having their biology changed. And their progeny inherited the genetic as well as spiritual traits from their forefathers, while scattering away from the lands of Shem, and being mostly deprived of prophetic and other guidance, hence the development of paganism among the offspring of Ha
  5. How so? Certainly, but this is a general statement. If I may ask: how have you taught your autistic offspring Islam? How have they turned out?
  6. Exchange between a secular Marxist-Leninist and a Sunni feudalist who opposes both communism and Shiism:
  7. Public opinion was led to believe that relations with the US had not only deteriorated, but that Erdogan had vowed to restore “an axis of friendship” with Moscow, including “cooperation in the defence sector”. This was a hoax. Turkey’s Invasion of Syria The implementation of the Turkish invasion required routine consultations with the US and NATO, coordination of military logistics, intelligence, communications systems, coordination of ground and air operations, etc. To be effectively carried out these military endeavors required a cohesive and “friendly” US-Turkey relati
  8. Uhh, pretty much every Biblical and Islamic tyrant was wealthy and of the ruling sector in society. Plenty of ahadith put the poor ahead of the rich in Jannah. The whole story of the Shias is one of the downtrodden and oppressed against the high and mighty—by definition the affluent and connected. Pharaoh. Muawiya. Yazid. The Caesars. The Vatican hierarchs. The Bush-Clinton dynasties. Different figureheads, yet the same theme runs throughout history. The bolded, underlined sections seemingly contradict each other. The fact that Mr. Ramsey is well connected to the Zion
  9. I neither agree nor disagree with the following sentiment(s), but it amply shows just how the Vatican and its offshoots have destroyed our world: Personally, I found that most of the respondents seemed rather indifferent to the perspective of the contributor @Gabenowa.
  10. Source Source Source What does this imply about high-functioning autistics’ capacity to follow, say, orthodox Shia Islam properly, or even understand it? Did they tend to reject Allah and His Guardianship in the World of Particles and thus, on average, were born with a deficient fitrah? As mentioned previously, both genetic and environmental factors play roles—during conception and early childhood.
  11. @Ashvazdanghe While this is technically true, I think certain syncretistic practices, however unorthodox, impede the development of sectarianism and/or separatism, especially if deeply rooted in a particular culture, society, and/or civilisation. Far bloodier crimes have been committed in the name of “orthodoxy,” e.g., the actions of the Sunni caliphs and Wahhabi–Salafi regimes, to not mention the genocidal activities of the Vatican-ruled “Christian” West. The development of “orthodoxy” is often attenuated by the machinations of ruling elites who don the “orthodox” garb in order to centra

  13. It’s a PSYOP by the PTB, the Christian Zionists, to make Muslims question the reality of the Shoah, setting them up to be targeted as “antisemites.” Zionism was originally a Catholic scheme to hasten the End of Days. Prior to the Shoah most Jews, religious and secular, opposed Zionism.
