  1. I can sometimes tell the difference between a Sunni or Shia girl by the way they put the hijab. Shia girls usually cover their chin. Most of the time though I can tell because I may have seen the girl at Shia lectures or programs etc. Theyre just too unfriendly and unapproachable! For me meeting new Muslim girls at uni have mainly been Sunni and if there is a shia girl that I would talk to at uni its because I personally know her from somewhere else. I just wish the Shia would be more friendly and open! Anyway thats my rant about the Shia lol.
  2. (salam) Yes I have also had many sisters who have avoided my salams. It's very frustrating. But what makes it even more annoying is that its usually the Shia sisters who do this (probably because theyre too scared that you're a Sunni and they dont want to befriend you). Its the sunni girls who usually return my salams and smiles and if they dont I'd probably interpret it that its because I'm shia lol. I don't worry too much about these people, but I've concluded that its the Shia girls who are the unfriendly ones. Why do the Shia always have to be so distant even amongst themsleves?!
  3. (bismillah) (salam) I have to agree with all the positive comments made here about The Arrivals. EVERYONE should watch it!. I am also surprised it hasn't been given much attention here on Shiachat, but inshaAllah more people will start watching. Spread the word to all your family and friends! You won't agree with everything that is mentioned in the series, however by the end of it (or even the start!) you won't deny that it is a real eye-opener and you will start looking at the world differently. Regarding the comments about them prortraying Nabi Isa (as) higher then Imam Mahdi (atf),
  4. (bismillah) (salam) Not sure if anyone has seen this article but it is excellent. May Allah (swt) bless her for having the courage to speak the truth. Getting away with murder Date: January 11 2009 Julia Irwin YOU'VE got to hand it to the Israeli public relations flacks: only they could convince you that killing children was an act of self-defence. As the recent bombing of Gaza began, Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni gave instructions for the Foreign Ministry to take "emergency measures to adapt Israel's public relations to the ongoing escalation in the Gaza Strip". Livni went on to cal
  5. (salam) Yes he will be coming for this year's Ashura lectures in Hurstville. Not sure about advertising but they should be up soon. If you've watched 313, Sheikh Abbas Virjee was the one who taught Laith about Imam Mahdi (as). :P. Can't remember if he was a sheikh in the movie though..
  6. (salam) ^ Yeah actually I was told today that it is on Thursday. Either way they'll announce it at Hurstville. Wasalam
  7. (salam) I've spoken to some organisers and the correct day at the mosque is actually Friday. Wasalam.
  8. I just did a quick search on shiachat. I found this link (post no.106 is good). I also suggest for you to visit Sayyed Muhammad Hussein's website- www.bayynat.org . Wasalam
  9. (salam) sis, Congratulations on your reversion sis. Welcome to Islam :D. I sometimes attend the Imam Hussein Islamic Centre, but I haven't been there for a while. Whenever I plan to attend I'll send you an email and maybe we can meet up there. Take care sis. InshaAllah we'll meet soon. :) Wasalam.
  10. (salam) Dr Ali White seems good, alhamdulillah, haven't seen him for a while though. Yeah he's always talking to hijabis, probably giving them some advice and stuff about uni..he likes to help out. He doesn't organise the Muslim Students Association's meetings on our campus but he sometimes attends them though. I think he was organising some other Islamic meetings at uni, but I don't know much about it. The Shia at Bankstown campus are very lucky B) , alhamdulillah , the Sunnis seem very open-minded and I have never really had any problems there. We don't really have much Salafis, alhamdulill
  11. (salam) Lol...yeah we could have met today. Oh well. Anyways the meetings aren't organised by Ali White...he usually attends them though. You know him? I think he's doing some other meetings himself...he's making a small class or Islamic study group or something. Anyways how about we meet Friday... would you be available anytime Friday? Wasalam. :)
  12. (salam) I'm at uni now sis. I'm free til 3. If you're still there I'll meet you. :D Ws.
  13. (salam) ^Another one from UWS ayy. Who else goes to UWS?lol. Bankstown campus is cool, too bad they don't offer business hehe. Anyways I'm a second year ...don't know if I'll know any of your friends. Cool sis, so when do you wanna meet up? Do you know Ruqayah aswell? I wonder if I know you :angel: hmmm.lol.

  14. (salam) Your subjects sound interesting...I would like to do some politics and philosophy subjects. Lol where did you get criminology from? I'm studying psychology :P. The sociology subjects I chose last year were electives. I could have chosen much more interesting subjects. Oh well...too late now lol. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it Sunday, but I'll try to :P. I'll tell you on Saturday. lol Sorry sis Negar for going off-topic. hehe Ws
  15. (salam) :lol: me too. I can't stand them either! I made sure that I didn't choose a sociology subject this year. I made that mistake twice last year :squeez: lol. Sis Negar I don't mind giving you some of my notes from last year...but I'm not sure if they'll be able to help you much with this topic. I'll see what I can help you with. If you do go to Milperra campus, it'll be good to meet up sometime. Wasalam.
  16. Lol. I studied intro to sociology last year. You must go to the Milperra campus. Are you first year? lol Ws.
  17. Let me guess. You're studying Introduction to Sociology at UWS? :P lol Wasalam.
  18. (salam) ^ Yes, if you go to the AlMabarrat office (on 95 Wollongong road) you'll be able to collect money boxes from there. May Allah (swt) reward those who are willing to help the needy orphans in Lebanon. Wasalam.
  19. Just want to make a correction sis. The correct word is " 'Adheem ", not "azeem". Wasalam
  20. (salam) InshaAllah you are all well and in the best of health and Iman. Just want to update my fellow shiachatters on last night's Almabarrat dinner. ^_^ Alhamdulillah it was a great success! MashaAllah the hall was full of people and alot of money was raised to go to Almabarrat institutions in Lebanon, alhamdulillah. The night went really well and alot of people had enjoyed it. The speeches made by Sheikh Yusuf Nabha and Sheikh Jehad Ismail were excellent and very informative. There was also an informative speech made by a brother who has been a sponsor with Almabarrat for 7 years. May All
  21. (salam) ^ The last time you met her was when she was 12? :unsure: You both live in sydney and your cousins, why don't you just meet up again? lol ws
  22. (salam) When it comes to da'wah I believe, just like the above posters, that one of the most important forms of da'wah while living in the West is having good akhlaq. Having good akhlaq certainly does change the stereotypes people have towards Muslims and Islam, however I think alot of the times it just stops at that. I doubt that a lot of the people who change their opinions about Muslims would go further and research more about Islam and try to understand more about what these "good" Muslims believe...however thats not to say it never happens. Good akhlaq is not the only main form of da'wah
  23. (salam) ^InshaAllah you'll be able to make it to the dinner. Technically I'm not really an organiser at the Mabarrat, but sometimes I do help during the dinners they hold and maybe some other small things. With regards to the radio station, I know that they are working on trying to get a clearer reception. However where you live may also affect the reception because in some places its pretty clear. Wasalam.
  24. (salam) ^No, it's probably not too late to buy at the door, but if you want they can save a ticket for you. Just send me your details or call the numbers that are listed in the first post. I know that IHIC is selling the tickets. You can also buy a ticket at the AlMabarrat office (95 Wollongong rd, Arncliffe) or just ask them to save you a ticket. Wasalam.
