  1. I have watched the video, and with all due respect, there is not given proof that MI6 or CIA are paying him for his channel. What I do know is that he has backed characters like Engineer Mirza against the wall. He's also the only one confronting SSP terrorist-minded Deobandis who had been given a free reign in Pakistan for decades. Our own scholars can't speak against them because of "unity", or a danger to their own lives, or a combination of these reasons. On another note, here is "MI6 agent" Yasser Habib defending the concept of Ijtehad and Taqleed from Allahyari's flawed concept: PS: calling him Shaitanyari. Really? When shias don't even call Obaidullah ibn Ziyad (L.A) as Obaidushaitan, or Abdul Rahman ibn Muljam (L.A) as Abdul Shaitan, they call someone Shaitanyari, just because he is opposed to their political views?
  2. https://www.macrotrends.net/2324/sp-500-historical-chart-data Suppose you had invested a hundred dollars in the stock market in 1900. Even with events such as the Great Depression, two world wards, and the 2008 sub-prime mortgage crisis, you end up with ~11 million dollars in 2022, adjusted for inflation. Is it so hard to see that a mortgage within your budget, combined with systematic investment in an IRA, will easily put you above a million dollars networth in a very reasonable timeframe? This of course requires immense financial discipline, having a well defined budget for every paycheck, and basic common sense. The poor are not getting poorer. The rich are getting richer, because capital generates capital. And anyone can get that initial capital. Edit: A mortgage is a reasonable debt because you are building an asset (a house) that will appreciate in value over time. Not all of them are haram either like people erroneously assume.
  3. Our definitions of poverty are pretty much the same. Keep in mind that I'm from a third world developing country (Pakistan). I have tasted real poverty. I have seen poor people rise up over a period of 20-30 years quite easily. I have seen people going from ~800 sq ft houses with no running water get 5500+ sq feet in 20-30 years. It's even easier in America compared to Pakistan. In fact, these universal principals apply in almost every country, except for certain failed cases such as Afghanistan. The main thing holding American's back isn't their working class background. It's their addiction to consumer credit, whether it's in the shape of student loans, car payments, or credit cards. I'll post the American stock market graph here to make my point.
  4. 5? There are millions of such people, and most of them did not become millionaires by receiving an inheritance or robbing banks. Look for "The Millionaire Next Door", and look up Ramsey Solution's study on 10000 millionaires. Contrary to popular perception, the top professions that end up being millionaires are not robber barons or Hollywood stars. They are your everyday engineers, lawyers, and even teachers. The formula is pretty simple in America. Don't borrow money to buy stuff you can't afford. Don't borrow tens of thousands in student loans for useless degrees. Don't get 7+ year leases for cars that lose more than half their value within a few years. Invest slowly and systematically over a period of 20-30 years. Unless you are earning less than minimum wage, everyone is bound to end up being a millionaire. If they are not, they did something wrong. Deca-millionaires and billionaires are different. You don't become a billionaire through slow and steady investing. There are no reasonable excuses for not being a millionaire or multi-millionaire though.
  5. So many communist talking points in this thread. The cold hard truth is that if someone wants to be a millionaire in America, then there is nothing stopping them from becoming a millionaire other than their own personal choices.
  6. I agree that he has a tendency to fly off his handle. However, if you actually go through his videos, he is mostly polite to people who are polite to him. Some of the non-shia on the other side are two steps ahead of him. We had a rather prominent sunni molvi on one of his live show; after he was unable to answer Allahyari's questions, the guy uttered a profanity involving female members of one's family, and Allahyari cut the call. Let's not pretend that Allahyari is the only one with a potty mouth in the world. I could post some Jawad Naqvi clips where he utters profanities too. Will that make him an Irani or a Deobandi agent? No. The point I'm trying to make is this: just because a shia doesn't completely agree with your political point of view, he isn't a CIA/MI5/Wahhabi agent. As long as expresses basic shia belief, we are supposed to give him the benefit of the doubt. Sadly, according to hadith, shias badmouthing shias seems to be something inevitable. It still doesn't mean that we should start sweating at shias left, right, and centre, but it's something that has been predicted in ahadith. I'll post some reference from Shaikh al-Numani's book later when I find them.
  7. I disagree with this man on quite a few things, such as Ijtehad and Taqlid and his political views However, it's kinda getting tiring at this point labelling everyone a CIA/MI5/MI6/Mossad agent just because he goes against your political views. For God's sake we have Shias commenting "agent" under videos of Ayatollah Sadeq Shirazi even on his religious lectures. That's how deep the poison has spread. We as shia should learn to cooperate within ourselves even if we have different political views. I even know mature Ahle Hadith folk (so-called Wahhabis) who listen to him with a neutral mind and learn a thing or two from him. They don't care that he curses their figures openly from time to time. They have learned something that eludes us shia for some reason; learn to accept that people have different view points and try to find common ground as much as possible.
  8. There's another concerning trend, and IMO it's much more dangerous than believing that a shrine is a particular person's shrine or something along those lines. Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)), "forgave" Aisha, so shias should keep their mouths shut against her. Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) didn't raise arms against Abu Bakr, Umar, or Uthman, so that must mean that they are not as bad as the Rafidhi's make them out to be, and our sunni brothers are right, and we should repent, and keep our shia brothers from praying for the removal of mercy from these figures, otherwise they may be in trouble in the Hereafter. These teachings are actually being promoted from the pulpits of so-called scholars on a massive scale, and our youth is being misled.
  9. I don't know why Muslims feel so guilty about acquiring wealth. 5- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ بَهْرَامَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ جُمَيْعٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) يَقُولُ لا خَيْرَ فِي مَنْ لا يُحِبُّ جَمْعَ الْمَالِ مِنْ حَلالٍ يَكُفُّ بِهِ وَجْهَهُ وَيَقْضِي بِهِ دَيْنَهُ وَيَصِلُ بِهِ رَحِمَهُ. 5. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from abu ‘Abd Allah from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Muhammad from al-Harith ibn Bahram from ‘Amr ibn Jami’ who has said the following: “I heard abu ‘Abd Allah ((عليه السلام).), saying, ‘There is not much good in one who does not love to accumulate lawful wealth with which he can safeguard his dignity, pay off his debts and maintain good relations with relatives.’” Al-Kāfi - Volume 5, Using the Worldly Resources as Means for Success in the Hereafter, Hadith #5 https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/5/2/3/5 In fact, the Book of Commerce is a very good guide on this topic. Sermon 209 of Nahj ul Balagha is also a good read. Also, the fact that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) lived a very simple life, or that Bibi Fatima (S.A) had a simple mahr and dowry, is a subjective matter. The Muslims of that era were quite poor, and he (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) had to set an example. Imam Jafar ((عليه السلام)) explained this in response to Sufyan al Thawri's insolent questioning. IMO if Muslims had even a fraction of the Judeo-Christian work ethic, and we all paid our due Zakat and Khums, then America and Israel wouldn't have been able to crush us so easily with so much impunity. I really dislike this Sufi-ish approach to money that has infected the Muslims across the world. Edit: PS if someone can find the hadith about Abu Dharr ((رضي الله عنه)) storing a years worth of rations, please post it here. Otherwise, I will post it when I can find it.
  10. This particular conclusion in the book, "The amount of aHaadeeth that are there, as well as all of them going through different chain of narrators, thus making it mutawaatir (widely narrated), meaning the chances of it being a fabrication is inconceivable and impossible." Similar reasoning can be used to to put up a case that the mushaf we have today has some words deleted at the very least. I wouldn't use this particular line of reasoning. Also, his reasoning that those who deny that they are his biological daughters are hurting the messenger (and thus deserving of being cursed in this world and the next) is way overboard. You might as well curse almost every sunni who denies Imam Mahdi ((عليه السلام)) is the son of Imam Hasan Askari ((عليه السلام)). Aside from these personal conclusions, this is a solid book.
  11. We can do that, but first, please tell us the months of Hajj that are mentioned in 2:197. Don't resort to hadith or ijma' ; just tell us from the Quran.
  12. You make some solid points brother, and there is truth in them. Personally, I believe that it's strongly likely that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) had four daughters. However, Nader Zaveri's obsessively rijal based methodology isn't necessarily the best and only option to separate the wheat from the chaff in historical matters.
  13. Is a fixed rate mortgage even considered interest to begin with? That is the only loan that I think is an absolute necessity in the West. Car payments, credit card payment, and arguably college loans are a different story. Besides the haram/halal debate, they are one of the biggest reason that people stay middle class and live paycheck to paycheck under a lot of financial stress. If you want to end up with a net worth of a million dollars or more, even if you have an average income, you always buy used cars and cut up your credit cards.
