  1. Youre either slandering or spreading baseless rumours from wikipedia, both of which are not condemned by Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه و اله وسلم). I’m sorry but you’re an idiot. I know he isnt with Shirazis, he is a mujtahid who has his own muqalideen and split from shiraziyya. You should apply husn adh-dhan to the Muslims. Indeed scholars are not infallible, nor am I even a muqallid of Modarressi as I said (if you bothered to read my entire comment), yet you seem to think its necessary to praise Khomeini and Sistani and to be praised by them, incredible. Boo Radley has seen more sunlight than Sistani so how on Earth do you expect him to address specific scholars. Since when was the acceptance of power hungry maniacs battling for khums necessary for anything. I have no desire to defend either of those because I don’t care for them or think their taqlid is valid. The only reason I defended Modarressi is because I know him to be a noble man (though I think he has done wrong and it is hopefully misguidance and not intentional support for murderers) by implicitly siding with the PMF and Iranian thugs in recent protests in Iraq. For you to implicitly warn from him for the reason that he doesn’t fall in line with a government that he doesnt live under is why I defended him, because that reasoning is akin to that of a cult.
  2. Only scholar who extensively quotes riwayat in his laws, which ultimately is the only thing worth listening to. I studied in his hawza, the commenter is slandering the Modarressi and he better pray for forgiveness, he is separate from the shirazis. @Flying_Eagle you should be careful with your slander, even if he was allied with shiraziyya Keeping good relations with scholars is important, it’s a damn sight better than torturing them like the bunch running the show like Iran. Prior to him calling soleimani and Abu Mahdi al mohandes shuhadaa and saying they have the same culture of the Prophet I would have recommended his taqlid. His Academic methodology of deriving rulings is superior to that of other scholars (he doesn’t rely on logic outside the Qur’an and Sunnah, and being the most knowledgeable isnt a requirement of taqlid - because its impossible to ascertain who is most knowledgable).
  3. I’m someone who’s quite interested in zaydiyya and what you have to say, but as you say, there is hardly any and resources to what you guys say are near enough non existant.
  4. Quite amazing, being a believer (the ones who get jannah) doesn’t seem a problem to me. اكثرهم لا يعلمون Funny how every time Allah reveals these words to us it is about those who are not guided, yet somehow admitting you don’t know is a virtue to you. These thoughts you have are from the shaytaan. I don’t need experience to draw conclusions, Allah knows everything and I get my conclusions from His book. May Allah forgive me for my negative tone towards you and May He guide you to something other than this kufr you are trying to draw others to, by some weird intellectual rationalisation.
  5. Outdone yourself here mate. Absolute nonsense. Jannah is a place those Allah is pleased with go when they die, not some fleeting made up trance when you feel spiritual. The fundamental goal of life is obedience to the Almighty to attain jannah. Read the Qur’an.
  6. Complete waste of time thinking or talking about this stuff. Talking about the story of Musa or Yusuf and what you can gain from the ayat of those stories is far better for getting to jannah than this pseudo intellectual nonsense. I mean this respectfully, this semantical nonsense will get people who think in a literalist and basic sense (like myself), but whose imaan is not strong into dangerous places. No precedence for this anywhere in Islamic thought, so AVOID. I 100% believe. I’m more sure of Allah than I am of the 4 fingers and a thumb I’ve got on my hand.
  7. Salaam ‘alaykum. May Allah reward you for having intention to learn more about His Prophet (صل الله عليه و اله وسلم) and give you tawfiq to adopt his characteristics and ways. The Best of Creation (صل الله عليه واله و سلم) is the best example for us to follow and may Allah increase your love for him and your imaan increase and devotion to the Nabi’s Lord, also, when you read his biography. The most comprehensive seerah of the Nabi (صل الله عليه واله وسلم) I have come across (from twelver resources, in English) is Hayat al-Qulub from Allama Baqir al-Majlisi. https://www.al-Islam.org/hayat-al-qulub-vol-2-Muhammad-Baqir-majlisi
  8. O Allah bless our master Muhammad and the family of our master Muhammad until there remains not a single drop of blessings. O Allah favour master Muhammad and the family of our master Muhammad until there remains not a single drop of favour. O Allah have mercy on our master Muhammad and the family of our master Muhammad until there remains not a single drop of mercy. O Allah grant peace to our master Muhammad and the family of our master Muhammad until there remains not a single drop of peace. Oh Allah bless Muhammad among the First. Oh Allah bless Muhammad among the Last. And bless our master Muhammad and the family of our master Muhammad as many times as there are stars in the sky and You alone are their counter.
  9. It depends what type of people they are and what your definition of “friend” is. Allah عز وجل says in His book in Surah al-Mumtahanah: لَا يَنۡهٰٮكُمُ اللّٰهُ عَنِ الَّذِيۡنَ لَمۡ يُقَاتِلُوۡكُمۡ فِى الدِّيۡنِ وَلَمۡ يُخۡرِجُوۡكُمۡ مِّنۡ دِيَارِكُمۡ اَنۡ تَبَرُّوۡهُمۡ وَ تُقۡسِطُوۡۤا اِلَيۡهِمۡؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُحِبُّ الۡمُقۡسِطِيۡ “Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.” This is followed up in the following verse (both translations by Yusuf Ali, which are reasonably accurate) اِنَّمَا يَنۡهٰٮكُمُ اللّٰهُ عَنِ الَّذِيۡنَ قَاتَلُوۡكُمۡ فِى الدِّيۡنِ وَاَخۡرَجُوۡكُمۡ مِّنۡ دِيَارِكُمۡ وَظَاهَرُوۡا عَلٰٓى اِخۡرَاجِكُمۡ اَنۡ تَوَلَّوۡهُمۡۚ وَمَنۡ يَّتَوَلَّهُمۡ فَاُولٰٓـئِكَ هُمُ الظّٰلِمُوۡنَ‏ “Allah only forbids you, with regard to those who fight you for (your) Faith, and drive you out of your homes, and support (others) in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). It is such as turn to them (in these circumstances), that do wrong.“ These two verses and indeed the entire first 10 ayat of Surah al-Mumtahanah are good to go over brother. These verses are clearly addressing extreme circumstances, but if you actually be Muslim around them and they are hostile to Islamic beliefs, particularly social issues that people, even those who call themselves Muslims these days audhubi Rabi, would publicly abuse and shame you for (such as belief in the family, worship, nahi 3an al munkar w amr bil ma3roof) then they are not people to aid you towards jannah. In Surat at-Tawbah Allah Almighty says: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ “O ye who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are true“ So for all intents and purposes having friends who are not Muslim is not haraam, but it is advisable to surround yourself with the saadiqeen (some Muslims might not be among them either). Remember your environment and acquaintances have an impact on your soul and to be careful with who you keep around you outside of kinship. This world is a hellhole and is not created for the believer. Allah knows best and May He guide us all and give us tawfiq to gain His pleasure and become those of jannah.
  10. 24:26 الْخَبِيثَاتُ لِلْخَبِيثِينَ وَالْخَبِيثُونَ لِلْخَبِيثَاتِ وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ لِلطَّيِّبِينَ وَالطَّيِّبُونَ لِلطَّيِّبَاتِ
  11. Not an ambassador as such, he was a leader of the Nazi party in Nanjing. After the invasion on Nanjing he was elected leader of the International Safety Zone. A senior Nazi party member but not the ambassador I believe. If you haven’t you should also purchase his diaries “The Good German of Nanking” which has most of writings from his time within it. I remember reading the Chang book when I was 14 and it blew my mind (especially as pictures of the evil were in the book) and also because it showed me good people are everywhere. It’s really something and shows how low humans can sink, May Allah guide us. I only very recently realised Iris Chang committed suicide as well. Wouldn’t surprise me if it was brought on by her research into that period and of other Japanese massacres, with it being her own family’s history too. انا لله و انا اليه راجعون
  12. One other thing I would definitely add, Any idea you have of the “ummah” get rid of it quickly. Many Muslims (aside from the fact they believe in Allah and the day of judgement) are just as lost as non-Muslims and treat Islam tribally, as an identity, rather than take heed of the fact what Allah has given us, in his Prophet (صل الله عليه و اله و سلم), and in His obedience is what will save us when everybody except Muhammad ibn Abdullah (صل الله عليه و اله و سلم) will be screaming for themselves on the Day of Judgement. Do not assume people who give themselves the identity of Muslim are good people or will guide you. Try to learn to read Arabic and try and learn words if you can. This is another big one and will help you learn the book. If it is something you are going to do learn grammar of Arabic, then the words. Learning about sects is futile, most people trying to convince you are only regurgitating what they heard somebody who knows a bit more than them say, follow what you believe to be the truth. Do not get involved in politics as an extension of your religion other than what you see in front of you. The internal condition of people is more important than their political allegiance and just because somebody wears a turban or has Sheikh in front of their name, they can still be a piece of work. Treat people as you find them Those fears about family do not go away, they often get worse but Allah guides who He wills. With regards to this I would read (or youtube) the story of Mus’ab ibn Umair. SubhanAllah. He was a companion of the Our Master Muhammad (صل الله عليه و اله و سلم) and was killed as the flag bearer in the battle of Uhud. He converted to Islam like you and I and his story could give you a lot of inspiration (it did me). May Allah keep imaan in your heart and grant you what is best in this life and the hereafter.
  13. Manufacturing Consent - Noam Chomsky (though usually should be taken with a pinch of salt this book is fantastic) Goodbye to All That - Robert Graves Brave New World - Aldous Huxley Abolition of Britain - Peter Hitchens (for fellow Brits) How to read a Book - Mortimer Adler (I would recommend this first because it will improve your reading experience for every other book) The Rape of Nanking - Iris Chang All of these books changed my life in significant ways, the last book a book on war and Japanese invasion of China accounts of a Nazi named John Rabe who saved hundreds thousands of lives in CHINA during WW2
  14. Accessibility. Shias are awful compared to Sunnis at talking about Islam and awful at accommodating converts. Shias will talk about Karbala before somebody even understands tawheed or how to pray. Shias act like a sect.
  15. This is also a huge thing. There will be people trying to manipulate you all the way and whilst it is all very new for you and you haven’t settled into your new identity be VERY wary of such people trying to take ownership of your practicing and relationship with the Almighty.
