    BleedKnee got a reaction from Abdul-Hadi in LGBTQ and liberalism target children again   
    Here's the thing, I never genuinely cared for LGBT+ stuff until only a couple of years ago. Main reason being, that what started out as simply advocating for tolerance and legal rights of individuals who just have a different set of morals became a demand for a wholesale change of society. 
    The LGBT+ discourse has gotten to a point of advocating for a kind of post-humanity, where you take the individual and push them to an extent where all socially enforced concepts (like gender) become obsolete. Where were start out at a completely blank page like in a videogame. 
    You see that with folks who are now raising their kids without ever acknowledging their gender until their old enough to tell them what they identify to organizations actually getting in legal trouble for consistently using the term 'mother' rather than 'parent who has given birth'. There is an endpoint to this, the eradication of our humanity. 
    Honestly, the old Christian folks here in Canada who used to talk about how gay marriage would lead to the end of the family don't seem cooky anymore. Even to some public gay figures like Glenn Greenwald. I really suggest that people watch this interesting post by Christian man Johnathan Pageau on queer theory and postmodernism, you get a good sense of what I'm trying to get at here.

    I always thought of Nafs as the ego. Our sense of an individual identity. That's where jihad an-nafs comes from I think.

    Coming from a Sunni background, I can't help but also be pretty influenced by some Sufi orders especially since I tried to follow the Shandili order before being Shia.

    One of the good ways to meet Shia women is to get involved in your local Community. Go the the masjid for Jumma, Muharram, Youth Event, etc. I don't know about other places, but in Dearborn, there are lots of these events happening all year long, not just in Muharram and Ramadan. Even if you have to drive (hours), it's worth it. 
    You can also use dating apps, but I think this shouldn't be the primary way you use to meet someone. Like others have said, it's really hard to figure out, from the information that is posted, who the girl is, etc. The information you have is very little, and it doesn't help that most women on Muslim matrimonial sites don't post pictures and their profiles are usually very generic, so you can't tell one from the other. I would tell these women, that if you don't post pictures, and post a generic profile, you're wasting your time, pretty much. If you're going to use dating apps, you need to post enough information that someone can get to know you, kind of, from what you post. Noone is going to agree to marry someone from a generic profile and no pictures. If you expect someone to go to another state or fly to another country to meet you when this is all the information you gave them, good luck with that. If you're not willing to share good and accurate information about yourself, that a potential spouse could use to make a decision about meeting you (including pictures), then don't bother with dating apps. 
    Obviously the best way, by far, to meet someone is thru family or mutual friends. There is no substitute for this and there probably never will be. The vast majority of couples meet this way and I don't see this changing anytime soon. If you don't have this option, only then should you consider the other methods above. If meeting thru family and friends isn't an option, you should try every avenue available to you, online and offline, and don't discount any of these. Also, and most importantly, you must be willing to take risks and put yourself in uncomfortable and awkward situations and don't be afraid of rejection. If you get rejected, always keep in mind that 'She is not rejecting me, because she doesn't know me, she is rejecting the way I'm presenting myself to her'. So then figure out how you can present a more accurate picture of who you are to a girl you would like to meet.

    BleedKnee reacted to Eddie Mecca in What do Shias think about the rap music industry?Do Shias think its a tool?   
    Golden Age rappers were exposing too much...executives had to put an end to it...they were sampling speeches from Louis Farrakhan, Malcolm X, Khalid Abdul Muhammad etc. constantly..."In control of many like Ayatollah Khomeini" lyric from 'Know The Ledge' by Eric B and Rakim...in his song entitled, 'RAKIM'  Rakim says "Allah who I praise to the fullest"...Public Enemy was exposing the state of Israel's treatment of Palestinians which angered the B'nai Birth…the music was commercially appealing, spiritually uplifting and bringing genuine inner-city issues (i.e. "message rap") into mainstream popular discourse...it downplayed self-glorification and materialism...listeners were encouraged to trade in thick gold rope chains for a black or African medallion...I remember thinking then, "there's no way they're going to let this endure indefinitely...enjoy it while it lasts"

    Instead of filtering dating sites maybe you need to directly try matrimonial sites. They seemed to work for people who I know. 
    Otherwise it might be worth speaking to the scholars in the masajid of your region. They might direct you to someone.

    BleedKnee reacted to Meedy in Best place to meet Shia women?   
    I am single as you are.
    I've tried the dating site this is what I found:
    - Some Sign up then leave, they don't cancel their account, they just leave it there.
    - They don't put photos (they may have valid reasons) but its possible individuals may ask the person as they don't want to reject person on appearance.
    - A lot seems to be from a certain countries which may makes it uncomfortable to approach or talk (e.g. security concerns) or maybe its just me or preference not to go to those countries.
    Local Communities:
    Its hard unless is there family connections and know people in the community. So if person is revert or don't have strong or few connections it hard (based on my experiences)
    So I am only left with 1 options which is arrange marriage which families in Iran would try and perhaps find persons that may be suitable for me.
    I wish I knew more places or methods to find Shia Women.
    I apologise, I know this does not help. I thought I share my experience and hope someone will come up with a better advice/suggestions.

    BleedKnee got a reaction from Dave follower of The Way in Pretending to not be religious   
    I would suggest that you make a new group of friends. Maybe find a social circle at your local mosque. But in regards to the now, I don't believe to be haram, but I do think it's wrong. There is nothing shameful about being religious, and these guys are only picking on you to boost themselves up. 
    I remember growing up and how people attached sex and drugs to higher social status, which makes sense because we live in a world void of principles and values. Total hedonism parading itself as logical. We celebrate intellectuals like Michel Foucault whose nihilistic approach to philosophy basically provides the justifications for having no morals, which he practiced by raping little boys. They're in the wrong here, if they can't figure that out, then they're genuinely deaf, dumb and blind.

    BleedKnee got a reaction from Meedy in Hijrah recommendations? (Muslim countries to move to)   
    I'm at the age now where I'm actively looking for a wife, and one thing that I know I want to do is move to a Muslim-majority country. For one, it'd be nice not to be a religious minority (Eid can be a real event, I could take a break from work to pray and the boss might join me, etc.), and also, raising Muslim children in a country like Canada would be mighty difficult. Watching my parents do it, it feels like they really had to fight against an entire culture for their own child, and that's just too much stress. 
    So I was wondering if anyone knew any Muslim-majority countries that fit these general criteria: 
    Shia friendly Immigrant process relatively easy  Socially liberal enough to not be suffocating Currently, I'm thinking Turkey (maybe away from Istanbul and Ankara) and Indonesia.

    I'm studying to eventually work in the realm of development. I plan on working in Somalia in some parts of the year to advance development in a real (decolonial) manner. I just need to live in a safer place for the rest of the year. It might be Turkey now that I think about it. 
    And yeah, we talk about da'wa whilst the Islamic ethos needs a revival in existing Muslim countries. Let's focus on our own backyard first.
